Flip's PL: 54,621
The Planet Beppa. A smoldering ball, home to one of the most savage races in the galaxy. The Beppa-seijin matched the Saiyans in terms of ferocity and fighting spirit. What they lacked was the power of an Oozaru. While the Saiyans built themselves an empire, the Beppa-Seijin went into piracy. It got to the point where the area around their planet was a wasteland of danger and crime.
So, naturally, Flip Fortuna decided to get a piece of it.
He had already brought Knutts under his control, building it up into a shiny, well oiled machine of crime, as well as improving its reputation across the galaxy. Now it was time to do the same to the planet Beppa. If he could bring it under his heel, it would not only improve his power base, granting him a fighting force of the powerful Beppa-seijin, but also be a great PR stunt. Imagine reforming the Beppa Danger Zone?
Of course, such a thing wasn't going to be easy. Sure, he could try to lead a small army of pirates to take the planet, but such things were normally messy, and generally attracted the wrong kind of attention. Flip preferred to use his words, convincing them the benefits of joining up with him. The problem though was getting through to the top dog of the Beppa-Seijin.
Cesar, the biggest warlord on the planet, was a large Beppa-seijin, even by the standards of his race. His skin was a dark blue, and his black hair shaved into a mowhack. The man's armor was a ramshackle collection of pieces stolen from other pieces of armor, but ultimately seemed well made. Beppan society was made up of various war clans, so there wasn't a particular government or monarchy, but Cesar had the biggest grab of territory on the planet, as well as developed a reputation for being the strongest. Flip had figured, if he could get Cesar under his control, the rest of the planet would fall in line in time. Or at least, it would make doing so much easier on himself. Getting a good foothold on the planet was important after all.
The massive man laughed as he heard Flip's offer. "Work for you? Are you serious!?" Flip had expected something like this. After all, if it's been working for so long, why bother giving up power to another? Flip gave a small shrug. "I'm just sayin'," Flip said, remaining perfectly calm, "You've got a good operation here. But why not try to improve? Under me, Knutts has flourished, and I can do the same for your world as well. I can make your people a force to be feared. All you have to do is turn over power to me. You'll still be granted some privilages after all. I'm not kicking you to the curb. You'll just be working under me, and the benefits far outweigh that."
The warlord gave a predatory grin. "Yeah, I heard somethin' about that. You cleaning up Knutts all nice. And you think you can just walk in here and ask for our world too? Ya didn't even bring any bodyguards with you or nothing! Talk about arrogant." His grin widened. "So, here's my counter offer. Why don't I just waste ya, and take Knutts for myself?" Behind Flip, he could hear the two Beppa guards training blasters on him. Flip gave an annoyed sigh.
The two men fired. Flip jumped as the shots went out underneath him. Flip launched himself at Cesar, kicking the large man in the chest before he could react. The warlord let out a cry of pain as there was a crack from his ribs breaking. Before he could do anything, Flip lashed out with a fist, catching him in the throat. Gasping and choking, the warlord fell to his knees, Flip landing calmly in front of him. Cesar barely looked up before a gun barrel was pressed against his face. "I think I might need to talk to someone else about this," Flip said coldly, before pulling the trigger.
The blast echoed throughout the room as Cesar slumped to the floor, a good chunk of his face missing. Flip gave a small sigh. What was it with people wanting to get uncivilized. He looked back the two guard staring in shock. Flip had just killed their leader, and quite easily too!
"So, who wants to continue negotiations?"
Flip's making a big to take control of Planet Beppa. After 72 hours, if nobody intervenes, Planet Beppa will fall under the control of the Fortuna Syndicate
