The privateer vessel Calvados returned to Bir-Hakeim a few days ago from the Balistrieri Futures outpost on Saint-Martin. Her crew tells anyone who will listen that no one answered their hails, though they tried for a week before shifting out again. They seem pretty creeped out by the whole thing. Katica Barringer, Balistrieri’s site manager on Bir-Hakeim, is extremely concerned about the fate of her people. She wants to hire you to travel to Saint-Martin, uncover the truth, render assistance (if needed), and report back; this should take about three weeks.
