'You want more work? I might have some tasks you can help with, but you gotta prove yourself first. Help out the Factions with some tasks and then come back to me. It takes a lot of effort to keep this place running, you know... '
Fortuna's Favored is a Mission for the Badum faction. It is the first mission for Badum. Fortuna's Favored has 9 mission parts.
Badum's got some tough work lined up for you, but first he wants you to earn the factions' favor to be sure you're capable. He's not just some guy running a bar, after all, he keeps the peace between factions, and between prospectors. Plus he also runs the biggest smuggling operation on Prospect Station. It's smart to have a guy like him in your corner.
'Good job keeping the factions happy... they may have their own agendas, but the station won't make it if they just pack up and leave. Speaking of which, they've been griping that prospectors avoid some of the tougher beasts down there. Seems their own people can't handle them. So, how about you do some of the heavy lifting for them, eh?'

- Kill 200 Mature Rattlers.
- Kill 80 Savage Marauders.

'Listen up, I got a new job for you. All those old credits left on the surface? Might be locked out from the network, but they're still valid on some grey offnet circles, where the Authority can't snoop around my records. Keeping this place up and running ain't cheap, gotta bend some rules, keep some things off the books... So get me some old currency, and keep your eyes peeled for anything else worth taking!'
- 100000 Old Currency
- Loot 3000 Containers.
- Loot 35 Powerup Containers.
'Osiris aren't the only crew interested in all this crazy planet and storm stuff. Plenty of buyers in the Artery, if you can get around the ICA's export scans or all those pansy 'hazardous materials' transport laws... Well, as I was saying; get me Charged Spinal Bases. And if you run into any Crushers or Howlers out during a storm, show them who's really the apex predator here!'

- Kill 5 Howlers during an active Storm.
- 200 Aurum
'Been talking with some of the faction guys, see what wheels need greased, keeping tabs on their moves; pays to keep an ear to the ground, you know? Seems all three have got some big deal secret project in the works, some ace up their sleave that'll put them over the others. Can't have any more kings on this hill, so make all three projects happen. Keep them all on a level playing field. '

'I've got my eyes on some of that new stuff that's been showing up on the station lately. The factions are being really tight fisted about it, big on their 'no sharing' policy. Kinda gets in the way of my import-export business, really. Listen, you bring me what you can, and I'll make it worth your while. '
- 200 Letium Clot

- 10 Progenitor Slag

'K-Marks are good and all, but faction scrip is where it’s at. Big demand for it in the freighter adjuncts, too, if you know who to deal with. So, how about it? Get me some scrip from each faction, oughta be easy for a savvy prospector like you!'
- 800 Korolev Scrip
- 800 ICA Scrip
- 800 Osiris Scrip
