Ashes of an Empire
piloting and pistoling...what more is there?
Frank Sawyer, the best hovercraft pilot on the planet…if you ask him. Heck, even if you don’t he’ll probably tell you anyway. He’s a professional racer, or at least he was until the mafia got involved in his life. Seems they wanted him to lose a pretty important race so they could make a nice sized profit. Well, the race was neck and neck between him and another; in fact it was only the two of them, what with the other racers being so far behind. Frank was trying to decide if winning the race was worth being shot when wouldn’t you know it?…the other driver’s engine blew up, some kind of unusual valve failure they said. Well, that put Frank so far in the lead he had no choice but to win. Didn’t make the mafia goons too happy though. However, they decided not to shoot him…yet. Instead they’ve been taking out their losses from his pocket or his hide, sometimes both. He hasn’t been inclined to race since. In fact, he’s been looking for a way out…
