Airship Enrollment for The Hope of Equal Rights or AETHER is dedicated to providing airship technology for all people. Are you a reformed pirate, but noone will trust you with a vessl, are you a Mad Scientist who destroyed his last vessel and cant get another, Are you a Clockwork Cyborg, and when ever you try to charter a vessel people run screaming, this is the place to find what you need. All AETHER certified airships are top of the line. They are personally backed by the UCAG (united cyborgs airship guild.) and are sure to serve your needs.

So, I give you a third of my gold, and you give me an airship, right?   Grin

Correct, a third of all gold pillaged will be deducted in return for the use of an AETHER airship.

A third? Can I haggle? How about a fifth? I can give you a fifth, I couldn't part with more than that.

A fifth works, I can work with that. Never heard of a pyramid scheme, so I cant say. Wow, one coin, you are in need of an airship.

I am in definite need of an airship.

...Pyramid schemes (matrix plans) are intrinsically evil.

Basically, one person contributes, say $20.  Then he/she contacts two people who each contribute $20.  They each in turn contact two people...
                                                    20
                                                 20  20
                                             20 20 20 20
                                    20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20

Eventually they run out of suckers, the bottom collapses, since there is no support from underneath.  The guy at the top wins.  (Unless we figure out who he is, and he walks the plank with a weight comfortable attached to his foot.)
Guess what everyone else gets?

What are the commisions for an honest free-merchant vessel?

And is there the potential of purchasing the ship off of A.E.T.H.E.R. Corp. at a later date?

I hope you've run this past the Air Pirates Union or you could be looking at some nasty industrial accident, erm, I mean action.

A small slice of profit, just enough to cover the cost of fuel and the like.

So we have pirates, we have merchants, where are the mad scientists and clockwork cyborgs.

A nice stock option is always a good idea, as for purchasing the ship, I think that could be arranged.

I tend to fly around the world picking up.... Shall we say volunteers for my experimentation and leave it at that? What do you offer to keep the more lively "volunteers" in place? Also when you say 1/3rd of profits would it be suitable to pay in monkey feet?

Is their a suitable market for monkey feet? I am an entrepeneur, I can sell anything. I can rent a Containment Class Aether Sailer, no trouble at all on that end. The Cells are rated at up to one ton of force.

Hmm... When I say "Lively" I mean elephants charging level of lively (not that I am in any way suggesting my research involves elephants) so do you think that would be held in check by your one ton proof cages?
And as to the marketability of monkey feet I have no idea... I immagine there would be someone out there in need of some...

Are you subjects immune to electricity? I can offer an electrified addon to the cells.
