Pumpkin Courier Service

The Magic SOB forum is for posts of story sequences that are frequently vignette-based. Put those here while actual battle reports can go in Reports From the Field.
You must talk like James T. Kirk in this forum at all times. Leonard Nimoy is fine too.

Jak: What are we gonna do with all this gear? We've ganked so many fools we couldn't possibly sell this off without attracting attention. If we hold onto it for too long we're just gonna get raided and lose it all ourselves!

Gray: Charity!
Jak: What? We're not giving this stuff away, are you nuts!?

Gray speaks on the radio:
Gray: Attention...uh... Basil Plate!.. This is Gray of.. Pumpkin Courier Service!
Jak: WTF!
Gray: To kick off our first day of ship-to-your-door delivery, we're offering a totally sick and FREE Charge Sniper!

Jak: Oh.. yeah! What's Basil, some Imperiya town?
Gray: Nah just some shithole, Gotta start small.

Gray leaves and returns with a few weapons in his arms, the radio goes off and a squeaky, barely legible gibberish voice comes in over the radio
Voice: Hallo? Popkin carrier? My name Nok. You, you bot a free sniper yes yes? Is it scam? I Live in plane by crap palace. you give yes?
Gray: Answer that!
Jak: Mister ..Nok!.. you're our lucky winner!, We'll be there shortly! keep an eye out for the .. Pumpkin Copter!.... oh, and it doesn't look like a pumpkin, over and out!

The Chopper hovers above the plate
Jak: Well, I see a wrecked plane down there... and the landmark says.. Scrap Palace.. that must be it.

Gray: I see a clearing down there, set it down!

The chopper sets down in the woods, and immediately some guys burst out of a building with swords, checking the commotion

Gray confronts them, pointing the gun at them and yelling at them
Gray: back in your base!.. get back in your base..Not for you!

The Scavengers growl like beasts and crawl back into their shack..

Some naked guys run out of the woods
Bok: Wow! that's cool!
Tot: Hi!!!!!!!
Gray: Uh... hi guys... which one of you is Nok?
Tot: Uhhhhhh,
Bok: Im Bok! Give me hat plz?
Gray: Ugh..

A door flies open and a figure comes running, yelling at them

Image20190226_201810 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr
Nok: Popkin Service!!! I'm Nok!!!! I want my gun!!
Image20190226_201829 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

Nok, the local runs up to Gray excitedly, and the other two nakeds look at them, dumbfounded
Gray: Nok, the Lucky contestant!... here's your Sniper my boy!
Nok: Ohh! Thank you ! thank you!

Gray hands the Naked a High powered death machine...

Gray departs and waves goodbye

Image20190226_201958 by Dic Jacobus, on Flickr

The chopper takes off
Jak: All good?.. So you'd rather be doing this than dropping a load of guns into a city and watching the fireworks huh?
Gray: Aww... come on Lantern head... We just made that poor Naked's day!.. They're not all gonna be a Stage performance!

Suddenley there's a very loud bang coming from the ground, and Gray Jumps, startled.
Jak: Are we taking fire?
Gray: Eh.. Uh... Nope!...oh..
Gray: Oh for fk sake!....
Jak: What?!

Gray watches from the sky as the pecking order gets rearranged...
Gray: Oh that is beautiful... brings a tear to my eye..
Jak: BAHAHAHA!
