Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Ontimaxe...

Today's episode was brought to you by the commodity 'narcotics' and by the career 'piracy'!

Please forgive the facetiousness Cholmondely, I quite agree.

Redspear - I just stumbled across this:

...
[Name] is seeking a [adjective], [adjective] ride to [destination] in [system] for a party to [celebrate] [his/her/its] forthcoming [event]. [Cargo] should be provided, payment will be [price] on arrival.

[adjective] loud, brash, noisy, ostentatious, offensive, pretentious, ridiculous, bangin', crazy, wicked, hoopy, irritating, over-the-top, expensive, tasteless, shiny {Please help flesh out these lists}

[destination] Peppermint HippOO, Hoopy Casino, HoOoOters, roam around space indefinitely in a perpetual party {payment per system visited as long as they are aboard} {I'm guessing most destination venues would be planetside, requiring planetfall.oxp to be installed.}

[event] wedding, divorce, senior prom, Bar Mitzvah, birthday, spawn-cycle, adult gland inflation, symbiotic conjoinment, symbiotic host rejection, euthanasia, release from rehab

[cargo] 1 ton liquor/ wines, 1 ton food, 1 ton recreational substances. {providing narcotics for this purpose would run you a risk of getting in trouble with GalCop.} {Regardless of the contract requirements, ALL booze, food and drugs in cargo will eventually be consumed by the party, perhaps 1 ton per hour of gametime or something like that}

- Hoopy casinos would be an obvious destination for some of these parties, but presumably that would require modifications to that OXP.

- If you dock at a seedy space bar with a party in the back, there's a chance they'll pay you and debark without realising they're at the wrong place. If you're quick, you can launch again before they realise their mistake. This will affect your limo-driving rep, probably negatively but possibly positively (as it turns out, they had a great night out at the SSB!).

- Sometimes when you dock, you will find that your customers have made a huge mess in the back of your limo, and you'll have to get it valetted. Whether or not they have made a mess you get the chance to ask them for a clean up fee. If they refuse, you get the chance to "insist" that they pay a clean up fee. These things may or may not negatively affect your limo-driver rep depending on (a) whether or not they really made a mess (b) how drunk they are (liquor and narcs consumed) and (c) a random factor.

- When your rep gets high enough you can get some "classier" limo jobs for a slightly more sober class of customer, as suggested earlier in the thread (laughed at the Dumb and dumber references=-) However they often tend to be criminals and mob bosses, so although you don't have to put up with the music and vomit any more, you might have to deal with assassins, requests for slaves as well and booze and drugs and somewhat more severe consequences if you displease a customer (arrive late, try to con them out of cleanup money).

Thanks. I've had similar ideas myself and then there have been the various taxi oxps. However, any mini-missions are likely to be a little further down the line with this one. Lots to add before that... hopefully :mrgreen:

Not my point - it's more vocab for Alienating more systems! I just prefer to give the context as well...

Oh, I see, you mean the highlighted text? Apologies, your tendency to quote en masse threw me :D
