Is the tone of this maiden voyage of a post too silly in tone? I'm sorta thinking that this is a bit more lighthearted than what others have in mind...

Nah, I'm fine with it personally. We all need a little humour, after all.

I'm stumped as to where Galvin should be, and what he's doing, though.

I guess a good way to start would be to have him run in with his polar opposite: Zora o' Da Po-Leece.

Would a crazy cyborg with a jumppack be able to get into the bar while she sleeps, or are they too close to the building for him to jump over?

And if so, she'd probably wake up to the sound of said cyborg slamming into the ground.

Don't worry about the tone; I got a little poetic, shall we say, for the opening post. Needed to set atmosphere and all that, and I was probably feeling particularly dogged when I posted it.

Anyway, though: Mr. Hat?

Eh, jumping past the mines is feasible. She is a very light sleeper, though.

I've always wanted to play those games, but no: it is not a reference. "Hat" is a naturally funny word.

True dat. I'll wait for Gaunt to post, then.

[up][up]Shame I'm running into the same problem, then tongue. That, and I don't had time to sit down and think up a good intro post just yet. Watch this space, I guess. If you get an idea for something, though, don't wait on me.

Okay, sure thing.

The only thing I can think of is him working on his speeder in some little hideaway on the lower levels, though that runs into two difficulties: one, why he doesn't feel threatened by the Vong's presence (even if it is higher) and two, what his speeder is.

So Wikkit, I assumed there was some sort of opening somewhere along the bar, like a door or window or something, but if there isn't, I'll go back and just make that another thing he imagines.

Four posts in and you lot are throwing cans at each other already.

This is going to be a good game. [lol]

By the way, of interest.

[up]Well, I think Wikkit's character is in some secret place in the bar, so Ace only threw a can at a building.tongue

AND GRAYWEAVE IS PEOPLE! Or at least I think that would be a cool thing to do. wild mass guessThe "Grayweave Generator" is really a bucket with a dead guy, forty pounds of dirt, and tons of microbes converting him into "food".wild mass guess

Well, you could have him oblivious to the YZV's current presence in the district, having thought that after two weeks something should have come along. He could also be running from/towards angry crime people/a possible means of escape/food or medical supplies.

Also, may I suggest the Loratus Manufacturing TC-9 Hover Transport? Seats 6, plenty of room for the aspiring gun runner, and listen to this: $399 A Month! Only $399 A Month! Down payment of 20,000 credits. With prices these low, you gotta wonder why we don't go out of business! Zoughnie Loratus: Because We're Cuh-RAAY-Zee!!!

I vaguely remember a part of Republic Commando where you had to take on an IG-100... Good grief. Even with the entire squad all firing at it, energy shields, being able to "revive" as long as someone was alive, and I'm pretty sure you had this big chaingun sort of thing, it just wouldn't die.

@83: I was thinking, if you wanted to, you could pretend that Ace actually was using his comms instead of talking to himself, since he'd be crazy enough to not realize he's broadcasting something, and it would at least give you a hook. And then all our PC's will look back on this as a sort-of-funny "hey, remember that time we met and we were all trying to kill each other" story.

But of course, if we did that, we're just asking for Sabre to pull the GMing hammer and send a YZV squad that kills everyonesad, having detected radio broadcasts, an explosion, a droid, a semi-droid, and all sort of other shit.

You're lucky the YZV effort is still roughly comparable to the US COIN effort in 2003 at the moment. Well, if they had the manpower deficiencies and reliance on fire of the Soviets in Afghanistan. (Why yes, I'm drawing from real-life counterinsurgency campaigns.)

Strategic situation is that they're deploying here with a pretty small force from a nearby, more-heavily-urbanized area. Right now they're focused on getting a foothold on the commanding terrain; my advice is to settle your arguments before they can deploy their artillery battery.

I used to own Republic Commando.

The Magnaguards were the only foe I actually hated fighting, cause they were the grasshoppers from hell.

You're a bloody lifesaver, y'know that, Wikkit?

I'll go with the first option, combined with a great big helping of Somebody Else's Problem - if the YV are hassling someone else, then it's no skin off his nose, right? Too bad that it most definitely is his problem then, eh?

But I think I may have him decide it's not worth sticking around too long with a massing YV presence, and leave the transport until it's needed*.

This seemed like the most likely dating system a clone trooper would have used back in the day, so I hope I'm right and didn't screw upsad

Posted. And yes, that's Galvin Zora is looking at. I hope that fits with what you had in mind, flanker.

It's fine, Gaunt.

I'll get a response post up soon!
