Security Informant

Description

Safety requires constant vigilance. We need socially gifted assistants to help us monitor station areas and identify potential security leads.

Start: Side Jobs, Tau Station

Introduction

You have a job: Security Informant, accepted at Tau Station in the Sol system.

Talk to Captain Vollmer in the Security Offices on Tau Station.

Next NPC: Vollmer, Security, Tau Station

  • Ask Captain Vollmer about the Security Informant job.

Vollmer’s eyes narrow as he says, Working as an informant isn’t some simple job you can just muddle through with a bit of luck. It takes patience and skill. You have to navigate conversations like a maze.

You nod in agreement, keen to show Vollmer you're up to the task.

He shrugs, saying, Or you can just get them drunk. Go to the Oasis Pub and we’ll see what you uncover.

Root out leads at the Oasis Pub.

Next area: Bar, Tau Station

  • Talk to people and listen for security leads.

(Social check)

You sit down at the bar and try to chat with the customers. At first all you receive are cold shoulders and rolled eyes. Finally someone agrees to chat, but all they do is talk about their gout. It doesn't sound like a lead, but at least you can cross this person off your list.

Keep gathering information at the Bar.

  • Talk to more people and listen for security leads.

(Social check)

You wait until a harried woman comes in. She glances around nervously. Could she know something? You offer to buy her a drink, but she declines.

She says, I'm meeting someone. Does my hair look alright?

No results yet, but at least people are talking to you now! Keep going!

  • Talk to people and listen for security leads.

(Social check)

The bartender has been watching you for awhile and beckons you over. After a few moments, you realize they are trying to see if YOU are the security danger. In hushed tones, you hastily explain what you're doing. They shrug and go back to cleaning glasses. You get the feeling you're getting closer to picking up something useful. This Bar certainly seems to attract some oddballs. Keep going!

  • Talk to people and listen for security leads.

(Social check)

You sit down at the Bar and scan the room with your eyes. A shifty fellow catches your attention. You approach him and, soon enough, the liquor starts flowing. After a few drinks, you’re talking and laughing like old friends. And then, he leans in close, cheeks flushed with liquid warmth.

He whispers: You want to hear a doozy? I probably shouldn’t say this but I heard some pretty interesting rumors last night…

Report to Captain Vollmer in the Security Offices and claim your reward.

Next NPC: Vollmer, Security, Tau Station

  • Share your lead with Captain Vollmer.

Captain Vollmer nods his head approvingly as you report the drunk's rumors.

Captain Vollmer says, This is good. I'll dispatch a squad to bring the subject in for more thorough questioning. Here's your pay, <name>. Nice work.

Congratulations!
