      • Nothing happens.

Contact the SlugsEdit

  • The Slugs, taking advantage of the firefight, have fled the system. So much for gratitude.
    • Nothing happens.
  • The Slugs reluctantly thank you for your help, protest they had the whole situation under control, attempt to make you pay for them helping you, and an hour later, finally relent and give you some supplies.
