Default SID's Star Wars Campaign (IC)

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…

You are established in sector 70599, one of the most vibrant and modern districts of Nar Shaddaa, the busiest hotspot of the ecumene in regard of art, commerce and entertainment. The flashing and flickering neon lights illuminating its urban space have earned 70599 a visual identity and a name: "Ankwas shapa-keesay" or “Ankwas” for short (figuratively translated as “dancing blue”). Weather is overcast and stormy, of subpolar variety; sunlight is scarce, only 2 hours of sunlight a day (in average).

Ankwas extends about 64.94 sq. mi., its status as the house of THE COUNCIL gives it important advantages, particularly in terms of access to investment and resources, as well as power structures that matter in galactic-scale decision-making (or so the rumors say).

Ankwas is overseen by the elusive crime-lord Slavanepo-Goda “the Hutt”, leader of “Chowbasa” ("the Welcome", in english). Word is you can join Chowbasa anytime, for one reason or another, you are bound to do so.

This is where your story begins...

Please roll 1d6 everybody.

1-2: Dance club
2-4: Hotel
5-6: The streets

Klurt'ogosh'oammeo walked the streets of Nar Shaddaa. He was clad in the armor of his order, a dull grey bodysuit with stylized lines in varying other shades of grey and black. The helmet and gloves were disengaged bearing his uniquely pure white hair and the typical red eyes and blue skin of the Chiss.

He wondered if this place could possibly be of help to him in his studies, but knows that the mission at hand, whatever it may be, involves repaying a debt for the Jensaarai and there was little hope for the furthering of enlightenment in this place.

He found the bustle disquieting. While he had learned better than most of his race to embrace the differences of other peoples and cultures, the sheer number of different species and the heard bits of a hundred languages weighed on him as he searched for his contact...

Togosho has a fine walk in the streets of Ankwas and gets to enjoy the Ton'keeru: Dawn and sunset merge to dress the city in hues of intense gold and pink; when the sky is clear it is especially beautiful, and this was such a day.

Night falls in Ankwas, and a couple of turns bring Togosho to a quieter place. The buzzing streets become alleys, and the bustle, stillness. But not for long…

A dog starts barking at him, it’s persistent, perhaps Togosho is in his turf. The slightest distraction could mean a bite in the ankle, tripping with the animal or a misfortunate accident. There’s less and less "opulent" people, it seems this is an impoverished neighborhood, some sort of ghetto.

@the_matrix_walker

The dog keeps barking, and the guy that looks like the owner is just watching from a bench, smiling. Suddenly more dogs start barking at you, and a couple dogs join the first one. You can’t shake them...

Togosho looks down at the dogs with a smile. (He glances for electronics on the collars or anything unusual about the animals... Wary they are a distraction for some other purpose. His paranoia has served him well in the past.)

"Careful now. You're likely to chip a tooth if you try and take a nip."

He nods at the man on the bench in a pleasant greeting as he continues on his way, undisturbed by the barking.

Once clear of the animals Togosho focuses his feelings and tries to find his path...

The dogs keep barking at Togosho, things are scaling little by little. The man is enjoying the show, he keeps watching you.

Relevant information: There are cops in Ankwas, the Alliance has forces deployed in the city, and they seem at “peace” with The Council. You can also find Enders about town, interestingly, there’s none to little conflict among these groups. At least publicly.

There aren’t cops in the vicinity (or the like), agressions aside, there's nothing special with these dogs.

Going down this path, Togosho loses his legs soon, he envisions himself laying on the floor in a puddle of blood… people is trying remove his suit.

...Meanwhile, an Ewok and a Droid walk into a "bar".

Togosho seals his helmet and gloves and backs up a few steps, scanning the area ahead with his sensors...

You also recognize the dog’s breed, they’re akk dogs, they’re smart. As soon as you stop, they stop.

Make your rolls!

TOGOSHO'S BATTLE

A burst of energy burns the air as Togosho launches his decisive attack; his enemies find their freedom imprisoned in a violent paroxysm. His light-saber cuts through, and then cold fills with emptiness the shells of his adversaries in this silent night: A bird lived in them but flew away, a flower ran in their blood and now it withers…

TURN 2

The Rodian goes first.
Then it’s Togosho’s turn.

The Rodian can’t believe his eyes, but the death of his beloved comrades makes him come to his senses. Finding the party’s plans virtually torn to pieces, he decides to stand true to the cause. He runs towards Togosho and shouts “FOR HONOR”, ready to destroy himself with 2 anti-particle grenades and take out the Jensaarai.

He slams with a telegraphic attack and succeeds.
It’s 2 attacks of 8d6x6(2).
Each burst deals 32x6 (2) explosive burn + surge injury, dealing (each):

192 (2) in range C or center.
64 (2) in range 1.
21 (2) in range 2.

@TMW Since this is similar to a blaster attack, you have triple DR (120); you can’t parry the attack but may retreat dodge to end 1 yard away from the center (this is the only way to avoid the attack).

With a mass of 30 LBS, your armor has 12 HP, 12 HT (for homogeneous) and its effective DR at the moment (to protect itself) is ((40-1) x 3) / 2 = 58. Provided you manage to retreat dodge, it receives 6+6 HP of injury (while you take 4+4 HP of injury).

Also, since your armor receives more than 1/3 HP of damage, you also have to make two HT ARMOR rolls to determine the number of seconds your armor is knocked out of action and another HT ARMOR to prevent it from falling apart (the number of seconds armor is stun correspond to the margin of failure, if any).

Having reached HP 0, you also have to make another roll to check whether your armor breaks. Remember you can use any remaining wildcard points to flesh wounds (yours/armor)! Your destiny point could help your armor.

COMBAT IS OVER.

The rest of the weapons are destroyed by the explosion.
You can search the bodies of the fallen people; their backs are almost intact.

@THE CLUB

PURR1T0 seems OK, Bibingui feels the flame of worry in her chest dissipates.
Karlan looks at Vanta in the eye and says: “It’s been super-busy, just following your example BOSS: I’ve been working all day. No chance to break a sweat or even sleep or pee… Sometimes I feel it’s “clowny”, but the stocks are rising and that’s COOL, I just got the time to ENJOY it! Y’know the other day I just fell asleep and woke up ‘til next day. BUT I’M GOOD. I also got some helpers, they’re coming, you’ll love them!”. As they talk, a waitress brings Bibingui a Faaway-panwa, Karlan drinks it…

Vanta feels like he’s being watched.

Togosho watches the Rodian pivot and come at him wide.
I Know the Truth of the Force,

he leaps back avoiding some of the force of the explosion, his force shield in front of him crackling as the explosion curls around it.

The warrior rises on unsteady feet and beholds the well-derved fate of these predators.

I am a Jensaarai.

Spoiler:  


He searches what's left for their identification and resources.
