Goner Gatherer Mod
This mod is for those who dislike
combat or have a pacifist outlook,
and prefer to play the game for the trading and other aspects it offers.
This mod deliberately restricts you to unarmed ships.
While very well shielded, you must be very careful where you go and
what you do !

: Goner Temple, Cloudbase Southwest.
Kalvin, come in, have a seat.
We have been discussing you of late, and until this morning we had no
idea what to do with you.
As a Goner, you are quite hopeless ! While there is no doubt at all
that you have complete faith, your ability to convert anyone to our
faith is completely lacking. I'm not sure you even try hard. You seem
to spend most of your time tinkering with our ships, and while crossing
Xenon sector successfully is no mean feat, its not exactly what we do
Most of us have given up on ever getting you to be a useful Goner.
However, this morning as we said, that changed. We know what use you
are now, and we have a task for you brother.
As you know, the Apricot Mapping Service lent us the blueprints of some
of their ships and you have sucessfully modified these to our
requirements. Good work that by the way.
We have commissioned the building of 3 of these ships. Two of them are
the new Gatherer class of M6, and the 3rd is a TL.
These ships are now yours. They are now waiting for you near the Temple.
Sakurato, we are entrusting you with a sacred duty. You will do what no
Goner has done before.
In these days of increased pirate attacks, in the wake of the Khaak
attacks that weakened the hold of the races have over their territory,
our ships have become more vulnerable, our people dying more often in
their attempts to spread our message.
Its becoming more and more difficult to replace these ships because
donations to our cause have gone down as the costs of sector defense
have dramatically risen.
We must now look to our own credit making endevours. And this is where
you come in brother.
We want you to become our gatherer. Go forth and find ways of making
money that do not involve violence. We know you have been talking about
such schemes for years now, so the time for action is now.
Go forth and make the credits the Gonor cause now needs. You will pave
the way for the Goner future.
Good luck brother !
