I sold you a hold full of oil this evening, it registered in my logs, yet after having difficulties buying a load of steel I refreshed to find that my profits had been reversed and my cargo had vanished. Don't think I didn't see what you did there. I did. Now pay up or the little rat on your shoulder gets it.

The "possum lady" you so ignorantly refer too is Guildmistress Dasha Ilyushneva Eltsina... or at least a close relative.

Ha ha. I wonder if the Devs have named that NPC.
Sorry about your profit snafu, Atomsk. Maybe you're just in the wrong faction. :wink:

I may be in the wrong faction for getting the best deals, but I'm certainly in the right one for when a deal goes sour.

So I can expect this money at the beginning of next round, yes?

I've spoken with my people.
You can expect a payment of 10,000 g-squigglies to arrive within a few weeks.
Cheers!

on a partly related note, the term g-squigglies for currency is full of win.

Now here's something I've always been confused about. I've heard that a canonical term for the skyrates currency already exists, something outrageous...something like "ghost-face dollas." Though I've never been able to find record of its use anywhere. It's probably apocryphal...

Before this thread, I've never heard any term expressed in any context within Skyrates other than "gold" to describe the g-squiggle sytmbol.

I'd blame the sleep deprivation then; I am a font of wild inaccuracies and baseless conjecture in latter part of those long waking hours. Not to mention the apparently unreasonable requests.
