July 8th, 2552 – Drunken Liaison
Part-time mechanic/sometimes suspect Kat James Reporting
It would seem we are a very bad influence on the galaxy at large – and our Parataph Liaison in particular. I think Druckab understood why we had to break contact and the fact that it wasn’t really safe for him to report in since he had no idea who he was supposed to be reporting to anymore.
I guess Liaising is hard when there is no one to report to and you realize that you aren’t so much a Liaison as a source of information on protocol and Parataph infighting.
Tower took him to the canteen for the time-honored tradition of getting drunk and bonding with your friends – in this case dishing dirt on clan politics, and the comings and goings of our friendly enemies or hostile friends… friends with bad intentions? Friends with Liabilities.
We learned a lot more, at least when Tower was sober enough to report it – it seems that while looking like Escher and Geiger collaborated on a painting Druckab’s body has a very high tolerance when it comes to fermented sugars.
By morning he was swearing he’d never do that again, by this evening he was anxious for another go. We’ve created a monster.
