"Surprising friendly around here. Not used to that."

Jerome was sitting in his armored flight suit, helmet on with visor open so he could offer some signs of humanity.

"Anything about this area you can tell us about, Captain?  I've heard strange stories but they never really got into detail."

The friendliness of the river people is dependent on how armed you are, we are very well armed, so they are very friendly, Arjun said. I also imagine the djinn is making an impression with his antics back there on the gun. Don't smile, dont keep eye contact, dont speak unless they speak first, dont accept gifts, and dont offer any, there is a very complicated barter system here, outside of the city. Bullets and water are the most valuable things, and we are closer to the time of the prophet than the modern day out here.

"I heard that an arcanotech 'Mech got taken out in Victoria lake, and was thought lost - only to come downstream a year later, piloted by some strange goo. After they took it out, it came back again and again.
Apparently, the experimental tech on board kept duplicating the thing in some sort of spatiotemporal anomaly. They had to nuke the site."
Blue laughed. "May be true, may not. Regardless, many exotic things come down the Nile. The croco-krakens are my favourite. Always make for a great spectacle when they come to shore in town."
"Captain, the buttocks are moving from the pink into the red and purple spectrum! We cannot maintain this rate of spanking any longer!"

Jerome just shook his head.  Had things always been this weird?

Jerome patched his sat data into the vehicles navigation system.  "Around here is where we want to go.  And here. " he pointed to the scavenger's camp, " is where we don't want to.  Too many hostiles."

The turbo tank cruises through the path that Jerome has charted out for it, making easy work of the rough terrain. It does start slowing down as they enter rougher terrain, and they are close to making the cut east towards the salt pan with a bullet ricochets off the armor shroud of the vehicle.

'Low velocity, large caliber,' Arjan says, grabbing another gear and throwing the vehicle forward.

Outside, Blue is slung around in the gunner's position. He sees the shooters, there are a good dozen of them, on horses and camels. They aren't raiders like he's seen before, these are kill fetishes, people who like to dress up in borderline bondage gear and go out with guns and knives and kill people for fun.

More rounds ping off the armor, from a single shooter. He has an antique rifle, and the rest of the killers seem to have much better weapons, but arent using them

Note - The Thrill Killers have the high ground, and are mounted, there are 10 of them, and they are all armed. Turbo tank is heading up a wide desert wash/flood plain, and the TKs are to the right side of the vehicle, approx 100 meters away

"Captain?"  She would know this terrain better then he. Not sure about Blue.  He closed his visor and checked his rocket rifle.  The rockets had much less range in an atmosphere, but their heat-seekers should work nicely.

"Aim for the horses Blue. Better targets and if they are ground-poundin' they ain't a threat." Well, less of one.

"If they persist, forget what I said about the Scavangers. Draw them together and get the hell out in the confusion. Unless you got a better plan Ma'am."
