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!

Bibingui is sitting near one of the tables in the bar, in a dimly lit area.
Only a silhouette with a dark cloak was shown.
Bibingui sees everyone dance, gets excited and gets up and with a determined face decides to dance ʕ •̀ ω •́ ʔ
He takes off his cape, deactivates his exoskeleton and looks at purrito and says:
Let's dance Purrito ʕ •̀ o •́ ʔ!!!
Bibingui goes to the center of the dance floor and begins to dance:
This is the ancient dance of the ancient ewoks!!!!

Victor is tired from a whole day of working at the clinic. Treating people for dog bites, being bites, even android bites. He sits on the table in the corner of the club, not conscious of the thought process that brought him here. He has ordered a double shot of caf, and is taking slow sips, each taste bitter than the last. This is fine and expected. His mechanical parts are limiting the pain receptors, working double time with the caf moving through his veins.

He notices an ewok dancing with some small animal in the center of the floor. He likes ewoks, they heal fast.

"Heh, ewoks" is his only remark.
