....yo ho, ho and a bottle of Corellian Ale :D This is a space pirate adventure set between ESB and RotJ. A crew of pirates is in search of an Alderaanian nobleman (Mathyu Dooru) who was lost several decades ago. A myth soon formed of his vast fortune he was carrying in the cargo holds and many fools went out in search of it just to die. Let's hope our pirates don't suffer the same fate :p

Rules:
Your characters are only human (or humanoid for you aliens) and all have limitations so therefore may not be a god constantly. No Jedi/ Sith allowed or Force adept individual whatsoever for that matter. All of you who join will be my pirate crew and serve under me. You may mutineer if you see fit I suppose.

My character:

Name: Milo
Species: Human
Age: 34
Homeworld: Ord Mantell
Occupation: Pirate/ Smuggler, Hacker, Scoundrel
Weapons: Modified E-11 Blaster Rifle, Modified DL-44 Blaster Pistol
Vehicles: Modified Corellian Corvette Gundark
Bio: Ex-Imp who left to become a smuggler. Used his knowledge of Imperial tactics to avoid patrols and smuggle illicit goods throughout the galaxy. He is wanted by several crime bosses as well as the Empire for assisting the Rebel Alliance on several occasions. He usually works alone with the companionship of his modified silver and metallic blue astromech R5-K8 ("Kate").

Milo's eyes were affixed the computer moniter's screen as Kate's beeps and chirps were translated into the Aurebesh alphabet. He cracked a smile and shook his head in disbelief, "Katie, Katie, Katie.... You never cease to amaze me. This cargo manifest confirms the tales of Mathyu Dooru's fortune."

Kate was plugged into a socket on the bridge of Milo's battered ship he stole from a repairyard five years ago he renamed Gundark and transmitted the computer database of Dooru's ship into the Gundark's. Kate was a modified R5 astromech equipped with state of the art equipment that was both legal and non-legal and recieved signals from the HoloNet so she could always transmit any vital info to Milo no matter where they were. To cut some lengthy, technical explaination short she is superior to a standard R2 unit. Kate beeped again and awaited her master's response.

Milo read her inquery and shook his head, "No, just because we've recovered Dooru's last known coordinates from his logs doesn't mean we can just go flying out there. We've gotta do a little more research and when I say we, I mean you. I want you to peice together a starmap of the unknown sectors he travelled through from his logs. While you do that, I have to gather a crew to help run this ship."

Kate beeped an objection.

"No, Kate, we need a crew. Sure, you and me are just fine when it comes to gunrunning for the Rebels or getting some spice from Hutt A to Hutt B, but we're charting unexplored space here. Who knows what's out there. Plus, the Empires been up my ass a few times too many and I can use the help from them if it comes down to us and a squad of TIEs. I can't man the gun turrets and fly the ship."

Kate squeeled again.

"I did not say you're a bad pilot. You're a helluva pilot.... erm, for a droid. Look, you just don't got human reflexes and that can do alot to turn the tide of what looks like a hopeless fight."

Kate began to chirp another time but Milo cut her off, "Look, just get those starmaps ready by tonight, would ya? I'm gonna see who I can find for the crew at Ord Mantell. I know a joint there that some of the best pirates hang out at."

With that said, Milo docked at the spaceport and set off for the cantina while Kate stayed with ship.

***

The rookie bounty hunter who called himself simply 'Otto' stood with his back up against the wall to the Galaxy Star Tavern. He was waiting for an employer to arrive when he noticed Milo making his way through the crowds with a hood over his head.

What a pathetic attempt to conceal his identity, Otto thought. Otto felt the corners of his lips tug upward into a smile as Milo walked past and into the bar. This was the perfect target to make himself a well known bounty hunter. For months Milo has messed up the plans of the Empire and several criminal syndicates but no one who would bother with him could lay a finger on him.

Suddenly, Otto remembered he had a contract for another target and was not able to do two jobs at once. Otto pondered this for a moment and peeked inside the bar and saw Milo at the bar. No, there was no way he could pass up this chance to make something of himself. Screw the contract, I'm going after Milo.

((Good to be back, joke ;), Go for the Mando character as well))

Milo finished off his Corellian Ale as he looked over the man the bartender recommended as a mate of a pirate ship.

"Hrm, he don't look like much to me. He ain't nothing more than some punk kid...." Milo trailed off as he lifted the empty glass to his lips. He turned to the burly man behind the bar, "I'll have another."

The bartender poured another glass and pushed it foward as he shook his head, "Looks don't count for much, bud. I thought someone in your line of work would have figured that much out by now. Listen, Ekire is one of the best...."

Milo snapped his head back to the bartender, "Ekire? I've heard that name before.... He wouldn't happen to have been a graduate of the Imperial Academy on Carida, would he?"

The bartender shook his head, "Nah, he actually dropped out. Few details about the incedent. Damn fine smuggler though; that's what Imperial training can do to a guy."

"You don't say?" Milo said with a mildy sarcastic tone before finishing off his second glass of ale. He set a handful of credits on the counter, "You know what, I think I'll ask him to sign on. Hefty profit in it for him too. If anyone comes in looking for work, point him to Ekire's booth wouldya?"

Milo began to leave the bar to Ekire's booth but the bartender stopped him, "Oh, one thing I feel I should tell ya. He's got a bounty on his head. You might wanna consider that before asking him."

"Meh," Milo shrugged, "It don't bother me. I've got a half dozen bounties on my head so I doubt it will attract anymore unwanted company than usual. Thanks for your help."

***

Otto sat with his back turned to Milo and the bartender and stood after he heard Milo thank the bartender and slipped into a booth behind Ekire's. Ekire? The Ekire? He knew the name along with Milo's and he too had quite a hefty bounty on his head. The reward for both their capture equalled that of a bounty more well known hunters like Boba Fett would take. He couldn't believe this. And they'd both be on the same ship. It was all too good to be true. He had to stalk his prey a bit further before he struck. He may be a rookie but he was not an idiot.

Ekire saw Milo approaching, but did nothing. He looked around, and saw only two dangers, Otto, and another bounty hunter, the other one clearly following him. He looked straight at the bounty hunter's eyes, and the bounty hunter quickly stood up and walked straight toward him, his hand reaching for his blasters, and cut right in front of Milo, heading toward Ekire.
"You got three choices. Option A: you come with me, I turn you in alive, Option B: You give me a share of your last job, Option C: I turn you in dead." Said the Bounty Hunter.
"Really? As far as I know there's a fourth choice." Said Ekire
"Oh yeah? What?"
Ekire smiled
"This he said, and quickly kicked the bounty hunter in the kneecaps, making him fall down. He quickly drew his blaster, shot the bounty hunter, and stole the bounty hunter's gun, aimed it at Otto and shot twice with each gun. He kept shooting and ran toward Milo, pulling him down to the floor.

((somebody in the swamp suggested i come here so here i am:) ))


Name: Malia Ruusy (Muhleeah Roosay)
Species: Human
Age: 21
Homeworld: none
Occupation: Assassin/Mercenary
Weapons: a collection of swords, daggers, and throwing knives; two custom built blasters
Vehicles: Custom ship the Death Breath, very large and crewed by holograms, something very unusual
Bio: Malia went through the Imperial Academy, but decided that the Empire was not for her. To get out, she ended up 'making an end of' somebody's life. They are still trying to figure out 'who done it'. Because of this, she has become an assassin of sorts, but describes herself as a mercenary, which she also does very well.

___________________________

Malia walked in to the bar(tavern??) and sat down. She'd heard of a job in the area and was interested. Seeing nobody who might be the one described to her, she decided to wait... perhaps this person was a little late, whoever he was.

Otto was startled when Ekire had attacked the other hunter, but this prepared him for the oncoming attack. Ekire's first shot managed to score his shoulder but the rest smashed into the wall behind him as he took cover beneath his booth's table and drew his pistol, Aww, Sithspit. There goes the element of surprise....

Otto rolled out from under the table and saw Ekire on top of Milo a few feet away with blazing blasters in hand. You, stupid bastard, Otto thought to himself as he turned tail and fled from the tavern, You may have won the battle, but the war is far from over.

***

Milo could taste blood in the back of his mouth by the time his vision refocused from the blur that had formed when his head hit the floor. Ekire lay atop him while firing at a scrawny human man at point blank range. He recognized him as the man who had stood at the entry to the tavern as well as the man who had been seated next to him at the bar. How the hell could I have been so stupid? The stupid womp was trailing me and I didn't even notice it. That Corellian Ale must have really taken its effect....

Milo pushed Ekire off and straightened his jacket and spoke as if nothing had just happened, "Yup, you'll do just fine.... Name's Milo," he extended his hand, "I have a proposition for you---"

Malia suddenly took notice of the two men sprawled on the floor. Could one of them possibly be the one she was looking for? She nodded when she recognized Milo from the picture she had been shown. She decided to let him come to her. After all, the person who had given her the information said he had sent her picture to Milo as well.

(Red hair, green eyes, 5' 5" tall, just in case you want to study the picture, Milo:) )

Katarn07
02-03-2004, 01:04 AM
Milo felt Ekire take his hand and shake it but his mind was elsewhere. Beyond Ekire, sitting at the bar, was a beautiful young woman gazing at the two with a pair of emerald eyes and scarlet hair. I know those eyes, but from where? Hell, Kate's the only woman I got in my life....

Milo and Ekire were on their feet and if Ekire had said anything to him, Milo didn't hear it. His mind was focused on remembering the woman. Then it hit him: Ruusy. Her name is Ruusy. Mara Ruusy? Malla Ruusy? Malia Ruusy? Meh, I dunno what the first name was but that's definately her.

Milo walked to up to the bar with Ekire and ordered them all a round of drinks, "Bartender? Yeah, three glasses of...."

The bartender gave Milo three glasses of Corellian Ale, "Hey, buddy, hasn't anyone told you the dangers of drinking and flying?"

Milo ignored the man and gave the two their glass, "OK, like I was saying, I have a proposition.... for both of you. Ekire, this is Ruusy. Ruusy, Ekire. Once again for those who don't know, I'm Milo."

He told them all about the treasure as they drank their drinks. Once they had all finished, Milo shrugged, "So, what do you say? Better make up your minds and fast because as we noticed my pal Ekire and I have already attracted some unwanted attention and you're no prize Imp yourself, Ruusy."

Grace

"My first name is Malia," she said, a grin spreading over her face. She realized he had forgotten. "It is nice to finally meet you, Milo. Elkire, same to you."

jokemaster
02-03-2004, 09:22 AM
"It's nice to meet you too" Said Ekire. He gave a sip to his drink.
"This isn't going to be an easy job. This ship is going to have it's own security force, not as big as an army, but every bit as dangerous. They're going to be well trained, hard to get through. And that's if we get inside."

Name: Zofire Fett
Race: Human
Gender: Female
Age: 17
Homeworld:Ziltenia
Affiliation: Bounty Hunter

Appearance: 5'7, slim, light brown hair with blonde streaks, green eyes, light skin

Attire: Black and Silver Mandalorian battle armor with a black cape(armor is modified to fit a women)

Weapons: dual-blaster pistols (specially designed), wrist blades, modified DE-11 blaster rifle, modified Tenloss DXR-6 Disruptor rifle, thermal detonators, and many hidden weapons.


Bio: A lost relative of Jango and Boba Fett. Raised by foster parents on Ziltenia, Zofire Fett spends most of her days working as a mechanic and weapon repairist. She also spend numerous hours designing, modifying, and training with blasters and other weapons. One day, while she was heading towards a shop with her best friend Zionia to get some parts for her foster dad's shop, they saw a group of rodians on the run from an army of the New Republic. While these rodians were running, they shot at anyone who was in their way. Unfortunately, Zionia, Zofire's friend, was shot by the gang of the outlawed rodians, nearly killing her. Zofire's was thankful that her friend was still alive, but swore revenge for what the criminals had done to Zionia. The day after the incident, Zofire was cleaning up her foster dad's shop and stumbled across a silver chest engraved with a symbol. This symbol was the same symbol she had on her necklace. Her foster dad said that the case was found next to her when she was a baby. When Zofire opened the case, it contained a Mandalorian battle armor. She modified the suit so that it could be worn by a woman. A year later, Zofire Fett took the job as a Bounty Hunter. Day after day, Zofire hunted down and killed many criminals for vengence. She wanders the galaxy with her robot companion R2R9 in search of more criminals to kill and also in search of answers for her many unanswered questions.

(Taken from the Character thread. :D )
--------------------------------------

A bounty hunter in Mandalorian armor walks to the entrance of the cantina. Looking around cautiously, Zofire takes out the datapad that is hooked onto her belt and studies the pictures of her current bounties. "Milo and Ekire...." she mumbles to herself.

As Zofire walks thru the doorway of the cantina, she places her right hand on her modified blaster rifle. As she enters, she notices that her two targets are right in front of her. A slight smirk forms underneath her helmet. "Too easy..." she whispers to herself. Without hesitating, she draws her blaster rifle and opens fire.

(Out of Character: I'm just playing the role on my character. Maybe you could change her mind. (coughs) Money....)

Name: Tepe Arin
Species: Human
Age: 31
Homeworld: Coruscant
Occupation: Pirate/ Smuggler, Bounty hunter
Weapons: Dual DL-44
Vehicles: Modified Lambada-class shuttle
Bio: Is mostely seen on his red clone trooper armor like in the clone wars. Tepe is maybe the only Bounty hunter that hasn't a bounty on his head except some personal issues with some "friends". Tepe's rought, scared face is not pretty to see, especially when he is angry. He was first born in Tattoine and then his family moved in Coruscant where he buyed his first ship called the furious. But when he got older and wealthier, he buyed a Lambada-class shuttle from an old smuggler. He made many modifications and when he got it ready, it was allmost shining as new. So that is one accomplishment about Tepe's skills as a mechanic just like his armor.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tepe's helmet was hanging from his belt and behind his cape as he walked in wearing a black cape and a black hood. He walked to the bartender and snapped his fingers. In three seconds a glass of ale was in front of him. He felt a blaster on his back. In half a minute, the bounty hunter was lying on his back and Tepe was pointing his other DL-44 on his face. The bounty hunter crawled backwards, then stood up and runned out. Tepe drank his ale and snapped his fingers again. There was a refill soon and anyone could notice who he was, even if his armor wasn't showing.

(Out of character: Are we all in the same cantina? Haha. I'm just wondering cause Zofire is opening fire. I'll wait for Jokemaster and Katarn07 to reply to my post, since I'm not calling shots or anything. :D)

((Yay, it's Zofire :D

Also, joke, to clarify Mathyu Dooru's ship is just a shipwreck (a haunted shipwreck) but no one knew it's location until now.))

Milo spyed an armored individual walk through the entrance to the establishment and first thought it to be Boba Fett but thought better of it. The Mandolorian was too small to be Fett and the armor had all the wrong colors and markings. I bet he's here for me. No matter. I'm sure the poser will be as easy to deal with as the womps Ekire scared off....

Milo nodded to Ekire, "Indeed. Legend has it that the ship, or should I say what's left of it, is haunted. If the tales are true, then yes it will be difficult getting to the cargo holds and then taking the invetory back to my ship. But I am not one to believe in ghost stories. It's a load of bantha poodoo that was formed by those artsy fartsy Alderaanian poets who call themselves artists."

Before Ekire could respond, Thresh introduced himself. Milo looked him over and rolled his eyes, "Damn this place used to be a great spot for quality smugglers. I guess times change." He hesitated for a moment and was about to allow Thresh to come along but was cut off when a storm of blaster fire forced the group to take cover.

Milo held his E-11 in his hands and took his time in aiming. All of the Mando's shots were directed at Ekire who had found more than adequate cover. Milo thumbed the saftey once the barrel lined up with the Mando's chest and then tightened his finger on the trigger.

A scarlet bolt pounded into Zofire's chest, knocking her off her feet and sending her weapon a few meters from her reach. Her helmet had fallen off and Milo ran over to her and saw his attackers face. Normally he wouldn't have hesitated in killing someone that tried to kill him, but she was just a girl. He holstered his weapon and helped her to her feet saying, "Fiesty are we?" He looked over her armor and weapons and smiled to himself, "Gee, now this is the kinda gear I was expecting all mercs in here to be wearing. Say, kid, gotta name? I have a job for you that pays over two times what you were being offered for Ekire's, Malia's, and my head all together. Whadya say?"

Darth NeoVenom
02-03-2004, 09:15 PM
Zofire looks at him with anger in her eyes. She pauses for a second, and kicks right between Milo's legs. "That's for knocking me down and how much are we talking about?" She then walks over to where her blaster rifle was and picks it up. While picking up her blaster rifle, she mumbles under her breath, "How did I miss?.

Grace
02-03-2004, 10:14 PM
"I'm willing to bet it's more than you could ever spend in one place," Malia answered Zofire. "At least that's my conclusion from the rumors I've heard."

Katarn07
02-03-2004, 10:20 PM
More blood came into Milo's mouth, this time before he hit the ground. He landed on his knees gripping his groin while eyeing the girl. Damn she's got nerve. With Ekire, Malia, and her with me I can't go wrong.

Slowly he stood and couldn't help smile despite the excrutiating pain he felt, "Son of a gundark! That's some thanks I get for sparing your life. Lucky for you I don't go about blowing little girls heads off!"

He limped to the exit and turned to his newly assembled crew, "Our astute young collegue.... I'm sorry, I didn't catch your name."

"Zofire Fett."

Milo nodded and smiled while rolling his eyes, "Right, as our astute young collegue, Zofire Fett who I'm sure she'll claim is some relative to Boba himself, has asked how much exactly will you be paid. Glad you asked. If you'd follow me to my ship...."

***

Ekire, Malia, Thresh, and Zofire were gathered around the monitor that had the cargo manifest of Mathyu Dooru's ship displayed. Milo could tell they were all awe stricken and knew they were all eager to begin.

Milo nodded, "Alright, ladies and gentlemen. We are about to embark to the fortune of a life time. I am Milo as I have stated a number of times but you may call me Captain Milo." He paused and then shook his head, "Nah, that sounds way too formal. Just Captain will do."

Kate chirped what sounded almost like laughter. Milo nodded, "Ahh yes, and this would be my first mate, Kate. She may not look like much but she's the finest droid in the galaxy as far as the R5 series goes."

Milo patted the droid's dome and nodded as he concluded his speech, "Alright, let's cut the crap. As we all witnessed in the bar, some of us are wanted men: Ekire, Malia, myself.... If the heat's to hot for you to handle, don't handle it by getting the hell off my ship right now. Questions?"

Darth NeoVenom
02-03-2004, 10:37 PM
Putting her helmet back on, Zofire says, "I have my own ship on this cargo bay." She then points to the direction of her ship. "If you want, I can follow you." She then presses a button on her helmet that allows her to contact her ship. "R9, ready the ship."

----------------------------------------------

((NeoVenom, that's ok, I corrected it. I want us all in one ship like a pirate ship. Also you'll notice Milo seems to hate Zofire and I'm doing that just because she kneed him in the balls after trying to shoot him. Just staying in character :cool: ))

Milo held up a hand, "No, no. There's no way in hell I'd let you follow me to Dooru's treasure after what you pulled back there. You're staying here...."

He turned to all of them, "....all of you. If you got a ship you'd better go find a nice shipyard for her to stay. If you got a droid, bring them aboard." He turned his attention back to Zofire, "I'm sure 'R9' can keep Kate company. How's that sound, Katie?"

Kate beeped with pleasure. Milo watched her 'nod' her approval and smiled, "She seems excited. Any other questions? No? Alright, we're going then. Kate, set course for Orion Theta Starcluster. That was the last known charted space Dooru was in and that's where we'll start."

***

Otto watched as the Gundark took off from the spaceport and swore. Well, looks like I missed my chance. That ship's too good to let outta my grasp though, I have to catch up with them.

He looked around and saw a Z-95 Headhunter being worked on by a pair of maintenence droids. The cockpit was open. The Force is with me today. First I find the catch of a lifetime and then I get my hands on a free ride.

"What armaments does each of your ships have?" Asked Ekire. "And can I go pick up some gear from my hovercar."
His hovercar was parked right outside, stolen from the first bounty hunter that tried to kill him. He quickly walked outside, opened the trunk and got a large suitcase. He walked back inside.
"OK, I'm ready."
((EDIT: posted at the same time, must make edits.))

02-03-2004, 11:02 PM
She wasn't please with Milo's answer. "Fine..." she says harshly. Zofire walk over to her ship. "We gotta go with that ship, R9." she then points over to where Milo and the others are. R9 beeps with disappointment. Before he unplugs himself, R9 sets the forcefield around the Slave II. He wobbles for a bit and extends his middle leg. Zofire and R9 exit their ship and head off to the Gundark. She hops on the ship and is quickly followed by R9. Taking a seat, Zofire says to the others "Ok. I'm ready."

(Out of Character: Zofire did this before the ship took off.)

"Those guy's are thought..." Tepe mumbled as he blasted off with his ship to follow Milo, Ekire, Malia, Thresh, and Zofire.

((You forgot mee!! *Shouts on a bay where everyone left* :p ))

02-04-2004, 01:01 PM
Waiting for the Gundark to reach it's destination, Zofire unhooks her datapad and reviews her other bounties.

"So..." Zofire says to break the silence, "How long will this journey take?" After finishing her question, Zofire takes off her helmet. R9 beeps and hums in reply. "You don't say, R9...." she laughs as she pats R9 on the head.

Katarn07
02-04-2004, 10:29 PM
Milo sat at the controls and half turned to Zofire and her droid R9 and answered the question, "Oh, a few days to get to Orion Theta Starcluster. Probably would be smart to refuel and take a break at the spacestation but sadly the Imps have a presence there. They don't govern it, but it'll be hard not to attract attention. I dunno whether or not we should stop yet. I'll let you know when we get there."

Kate chirped a series of beeps and whistles and awaited her master's response. Milo couldn't help but laugh, "Kate says the odds of us being detected by the Imps are 674 to 1. I'm not too sure I like those odds. What do you think Ekire? Malia?"

jokemaster
02-05-2004, 01:18 AM
Ekire shrugged.
"Whatever you guys think is better. I don't trust odds, either way."

Grace
02-05-2004, 04:15 PM
"Haven't you heard of odds?" Malia questioned. "Chances are, once the odds are spoken, they will be overthrown. That's why I don't trust them. I'd say we just risk it. If we get caught, we've got enough firepower and speed to get away."

Katarn07
02-05-2004, 08:40 PM
"Awright, we'll dock then."

Milo gave the controls to Kate and turned to everyone, "I suggest you get some rest. Once we leave charted space we'll probably be up all day and night with the repairs we'll be doing on the ship."

Kate whistled and Milo nodded, "Uhuh, I was getting to that, Katie.... Dooru's log spoke of strange spacial anomalies along the bulk of his course so I'm willing to bet that's what took him down. The Gundark is a helluva lot stronger in defenses but she might have some trouble staying together nontheless."

***

After the journey to Orion Theta, the Gundark docks with the refueling station as did Tepe's shuttle and Otto's Headhunter. Kate was left to keep the ship safe as the rest of them departed into the nearest bar.

Milo looked over the faces of the alien scum whose eyes were glued to them. Milo frowned, "Sithspit. No Imps but I'm willing to bet these guys recognize at least one of us." He turned to Ekire and Malia, "Get outta here as casually as possible. Meet me outside the Gundark and we can dispose of any trash that may be trailing us together. Zofire, Thresh?"

He turned to them, "There's two exits from this bar. I want you each to keep as many people here as possible without force. Just delay them as long as possible buying Malia, Ekire, and I enough time? Got that? Good."

Milo watched Malia and Ekire leave the bar, each using the different exit. Milo watched and saw no one followed. A pair of Grans stared at him still. He decided to make his move and left the door Thresh guarded.

***

Otto had followed Milo to the bar he saw Ekire and Malia casually leave. Hmm, something's up. He ducked into the shadows and watched Milo pass him by. Once Milo disappeared from sight, Otto headed toward the bar's first enterance where Zofire stood. Hmm, a fellow hunter trying to make something of herself. Looks like we have something in common....

Otto came up to her, "Do you realize that you're travelling with three major bounties each with hefty sums of money on their heads?"

((sorry, Tepe, I overlooked your post. Introduce your character to me. You'll be stuck on my ship after we all leave this spacestation))

Ekire quickly slipped out. He walked around town, keeping his face hidden. He noticed someone following him, quickly rounded the corner of an alley, and waited in a small dark hole in a wall. When the other man rounded the corner, Ekire hit him in the head with the blaster. He then disposed of the unconcious body by putting it at the door of a hospital with a note saying he is delusionus and keeps thinking he's seeing wanted people. With that done he headed for the ship.

Milo continued on rounding random corners trying to throw off the trail of any potential followers. He finally reached the ship and saw Ekire waiting, but Malia was nowhere to be seen.

Milo ran to Ekire, "Where's Malia?"

Tepe walked on Milo's ship, placing a following device so it would be easier to follow. Then he ran to the door and opened it, seeing Milo and others infront of the ship. "Goddamn it..." Tepe mumbled and ran out from the ship and tried to get away but he tripped on a pipe on the floor and fell down. His hood was no longer on his head. Tepe mumbled something furious and stood up, seeing a blaster pointing his face an inch away. He mumbled something again and took his helmet an put it on his head. "Damn you..." he mumbled and rose his hands.

Ekire kept the blaster firmly aimed at Tepe.
"Stand up. keep your hands above your head. He said, stepping back so Tepe couldn't knock him down.

02-06-2004, 01:09 PM
Milo held both his E-11 and DL-44 in either hand but saw Ekire had the situation well in hand. "Take him onto the Gundark and throw him in the brig. Kate will show you the way; I'll question him later. I'm going to go find Malia. She may be in trouble."

Milo left Ekire and Tepe be to look for Malia.

Otto laughed, "Name's Otto. Like yourself, I'm a hunter trying to make something outta myself. Unlike you, I have the brains to know where to look. You're supposed to hunt your prey, not allow them to tag along with them to some mythological treasure. Can't believe you fell for that, but then again you're just a little girl. Got alot to learn...."

Zofire draws her blaster rifle and points it to Otto's head. "Don't you dare insult me like that. You don't know me. I've killed many crime lords, criminals, even other bounty hunters."

Zofire tries to calm herself down. She continues to speak, "If I wanted to, I can take them out with no problem. If there's no so called treasure, I'll turn them in."

"You should know my identity by my suit but if you dont, I am Tepe Arin. And I din't come all this way for a bounty, I heard that you were looking for something... What was it... Well, something and I decided to follow you. And to see would the trip make me wealthy" Tepe said and rose to sit down leaning to the wall.

"You sure about that?" Tepe asked and pushed a button on his belt that launched a dart at Ekire that could make him unconsiousness for three hours. Tepe waited if the dart would hit, it was too small to see and it affected in three seconds so he waited patiently

(Hey, it's a bounty hunter belt :p )

02-07-2004, 01:43 PM
Otto smiled and put his hands up defensively, "OK, OK, don't go nuts on me. Jeez!"

Otto could see Thresh at the other doorway and noticed his hand gripped a blaster. This could get ugly if Zofire decided to attack him right here, "I believe you are very capable.... for your status. You show great potential but if you can't do something as simple as take down a ship with three wanted fugitives who are just beginning to gain your trust, you'll never be an infamous bounty hunter with fortune and glory. I see that's what you want, but I wouldn't trust a group of wanted criminals in helping you their enemy. If I were you, I'd stay with them. Gain Milo's trust and once you got that then and only then make your move. Strike like a waart does a sand fly."

Otto decided to take a step back out of Thresh's line of fire and nodded, "If you decide to take my advice, I'll be following Milo all the time and could help you if necessary. If you decide to trust him and look for this 'fortune' I'll still be behind you all the way but don't expect me to exclude you from my crosshairs...."

With that said, Otto left the bar and disappeared from Zofire's and Thresh's sight.

"thats the man who attacked milo in the bar do me a fovor and watch my spot for me while i follow him" with that thresh went out the door to see otto walk around a corner. thresh followed him to a spaceport and put a tracking device on his ship. glad that he had not been detected thresh headed to the cantina.

The dart Tepe fired hit Ekire in the shoulder and within in seconds he was down. Kate squeeled and a tazer popped out from her shell and bolts of blue electricity shot out at Tepe. He too fell unconscious in his cell and Kate activated the force field after removing the bounty hunter's gear and placing them in a locker nearby.

Kate dragged Ekire carefully to the sick bay of the ship and sent a signal out to Milo to get back to the ship.

***

Milo felt the droid caller in his pocket begin to vibrate as it beeped to the tune of Drive Me Mad. He took it out and thumbed it, "Katie? I'm looking for Malia; she may be in alot of trouble. Can this wait?"

Kate squeeled a deafening pitched whistle and Milo shouted back, "OK, OK, OK! I'll be right there!"

After replacing the caller, he saw Thresh heading his way. Milo frowned to himself and yelled, "What the hell are you doing here? I told you to wait at the bar!"

***

Otto stood in the ship bay and ran his hand along the belly of a small cargo hauler. Carbon scoring adorned the gray hull but other than the few burns and scratches, it looked like a pretty nice ship. I'll need the cargo space for the bounties. If the girl decides to help, she can help pilot the ship.

He glanced around and saw an Imperial officer run by. He waved him over and smiled, "Nice ship you've got here."

The officer nodded, "It gets the job done. She replaced my last hauler I had before it got torn to peices out in the unknown space in Sector G:12. I'd love to get her back...."

Otto nodded, "Uhuh. Well, I do have a proposal for you."

"What kind?"

"A trade. See that Z-95 over there?" Otto pointed and continued once the officer saw it, "It's hot, but it's worth well over twice the resale value of this hauler you got here. What do you say?"

The officer rubbed his chin and narrowed his eyes, "Takes guts confessing theft of a space craft to an Imperial. You do realize I could arrest you, don't you?"

Otto laughed, "Would you? You're out in the middle of nowhere and some guy comes up to you with an offer like this and you follow some Imperial code over it? I'm no fool. Do we have a deal?"

The officer nodded, "Deal."

Zofire stands at her post for a while and thinks about what Otto said. "He's right. My reputation will not look good if people know that I helped 3 of my bounties." Zofire then waits for Milo or anyone else aboard the Gundark to contact her.

R9 goes over to her post and beeps. "We'll get off this place as soon as I get a signal, R9" R9 hums and whistles in reply.

Zofire holsters her blaster rifle and gets her hand on it just in case anything happens.

While Kate awaited her master's arrival, she decided to forage through a medicine chest and produced a vial of anti-venom. Loading her siringe without Milo's help proved difficult, but she managed. The tip of the needle hit Ekire's arm and Kate pulled it out slowly after all of the blue liquid had entered his blood stream.

Ekire slowly came to. Although concious, Tepe's drug still had a hold on many of his muscles which hurt to move.

Black Knight of Keno
02-08-2004, 02:13 PM
Tepe had opened his eye's but didn't move. He tried to move his finger but every time he moved, the pain hurt him like hell. Tepe just looked around because he had trained to control the pain's in his head so it wouldn't be too painful. If I would be fast enought, I could grap that anti-venom needle and get myself free without getting a hell-like pain Tepe thought but when he tried it, he just hurt himself more. Do Tepe waited for everyone get back to the ship

((Get back to the ship goddamnit!! :p ))

"Did he escape?" He asked.

Kate shook her dome and rolled back to the cell which held Tepe. Tepe had come to but it was clear he was in alot of pain. The forcefield was holding him and there was no way he could get out of it.

Milo's face went pale, "You mean the guy that attacked me 'n Ekire back on Ord Mantell? Aww, Sithspit! Get back to the ship; Ekire and Kate should be waiting. I'm gonna get Malia there too."

After Thresh left, Milo got out his comlink and shouted, "Zofire? Wouldya get your ass back to the ship already?"

He switched frequencies and took off at a steady jog, "Malia? Malia, come in. We're in trouble. Hurry up, wouldya?"

There was no answer. He pocketed the comlink and ran faster.

Zofire went jogging to the ship and R9 quickly followed her. She then responds to Milo's remark, "I'm on my way."

While Zofire saw the Gundark in sight, she started walking towards it. Zofire goes up the ship's ramp and looks around. "So what's new?" R9 sets himself aside of Zofire.

"Oh, I don't know, the guy we caught hit me with some kind of poison dart, so he's been shocked, I'm injured and it hurts to move around, so I'm just lying in bed talking." Said Ekire from his bed in the Medical Bay.

((If the zap hit the right place... You know...))

Tepe looked around and then started to relief from the pain from the zap on the right place, so he stood up and tried to walk on a bench. He got far enought so he sat down on the chair.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A Z-95 headhunter landed next to Tepe's shuttle. A shady man, wearing full black clothes, cape and a hood which was on his head. The man walked around the corridors and saw Milo. "Maybe it was useful to come here afterall" he mumbled and walked still towards the Gundark. When he got to the hangar door, he looked inside and then hid in the ventilation system. He was no Jedi but still no Bounty hunter. He waited until the ship would leave, trying to find the frequency of Tepes suit.

Malia had been knocked unconscious and was just coming out of it when she heard Milo swear through the comlink and turn it off. By that point it was too late to try and get in touch with him since his comlink was off so she decided to figure out where she was before doing anything else.

Katarn07
02-09-2004, 11:43 PM
Milo had just rounded a corner after shutting his comlink off before overhearing a pair of Grans.

"Ruusy? Pff, you're crazy. She'd had sliced you into Bantha Stew before you could get your blaster out."

"Oh, don't believe me, huh? Why don't we just go into my apartment and see."

"Oh, you're willing to show me? Well, I'm sorry for doubting your word about capturing someone but it was not Ruusy!"

"How much do you wanna make a bet? I followed her outta the bar and into an abandoned cooridor outside the ship yard."

Milo rolled his eyes, Damn you. Shut the hell up and lead the way, wouldya?

There was a pause. Finally a response from the skeptical Gran, "Twenty five. It's all the pocket money I got."

"OK, twenty five it is. Man, you'll be sorry about this one."

"Sure I will. Let's get on with it...."

Milo skulked through the shadows trailing the two. They stopped outside an apartment door and the Gran claiming to have captured Malia patted his pockets and after a few moments swore, "Sithspit! Aww, sunuva Gundark! I locked myself out. The key's on my nightstand. I was in such a rush to get to you I forgot to grab it...."

The other Gran shook his head, "Such a rush or the alcohol. Come on, we'll go back to my place and get your spare. Since we're going back to my place and to my loot, care to up the wager to say.... 100?"

"You're on!" the other responded as they took off into a jog, "Come on, hurry up!"

Milo ducked behind a bulk head and watched until the two disappeared from sight. He ran to the Gran's locked door and examined the lock. A keycard slot was all that seperated from him and Malia and he knew he could easily bypass had Kate been with him but she wasn't and there was no time for her to get there. He knocked on the door, "Malia?"

***

Otto followed Zofire to the Gundark. He wasn't sure whether or not she had spotted him but that did not matter. He told her all about his plans for trailing him so her seeing him plant a tracking device or not would matter little. He hoped he had persuaded her into helping him but he was confident that even if he had not he would manage just fine. After the tracker was planted he began to head back for his ship but a group of stormtroopers bumped into him, knocking him down.

***

Kate was plugged into her alcove and had all the sensors of the Gundark being transmitted into her central core computer. She spotted Otto on the ground struggling to get up and squeeled a warning to the others. The computer monitor translated her binary code for them all.

Ekire stood up, painful but he managed. He ran outside. He slowly sneaked up on Otto, and threw a punch straight at his head.

02-10-2004, 12:10 AM
Malia heard the knock on the door and opened it, prepared to throw a punch at whoever was on the other side. When she saw it was Milo, she pulled her hand down and unclenched the fist. Then she rubbed her head.

"That hurt, whoever did it," she said. "Let's go."

Katarn07
02-10-2004, 12:23 AM
Otto fell to the ground again and looked up to Ekire. His vision was a blur but he recognized him and spat out blood before speaking, "You! You're the bastard that attacked me on Ord Mantell! I swore I'd make you pay and you may very well recieve the payment today."

He rolled away and put some distance between himself and Ekire. He turned and saw the squad of stormtroopers that knocked him down had their E-11s trained upon Ekire. Otto laughed, "Haha. You're going straight to the Empire's Detention Complex on Orinackra, pal."

***

Milo and Malia arrived outside the Gundark less than fifteen minutes later from leaving the Gran's apartment and were greeted by the backs of the white, plastoid shock armor of a squad of stormtroopers.

Milo pulled Malia back, "Sithspit. Imps. Alot of Imps. This is a fire fight I'd normally avoid but we've got no time to find another way around. The others are waiting for us."

He poked his head around the corner and saw Ekire was their target. Otto was next to him smirking. Milo frowned, "Seven on two. Eight to three if you include Ekire and that stupid Womp that tried to take me and Ekire out back on Ord Mantell. Let's put your assassination skills to the test, shall we?"

Milo drew both his DL-44 and E-11 and opened fire on the stormtroopers. Otto saw him and Malia and fled for his ship after a stray bolt grazd his shoulder. Bested again. Those bastards are gonna pay.

Hearing the shots, Zofire stepped out of the Gundark with her modified blaster rifle out and opens fire at the stormtroopers. After firing, Zofire quickly rolls behind a crate on the cargo bay. Peeking above the crate Zofire fires once again at the stormtroopers.

02-10-2004, 08:22 PM
The last stormtrooper falls with Zofire's barrage of fire.

Milo runs after Otto and rounds the corner he went to see a blackened wall from Ekire's blaster fire. He holstered his weapons, "Damn it. He got away."

He motioned for his companions to follow, "We'd better get going."

***

Otto sat in the infarmary as a medic droid applied bacta patches to his burned back. Several of Ekire's shots had scored him, but the stormtrooper that had gotten his weapon stolen had dragged him to saftey. That Ekire is really gonna pay. I may deal with him myself and screw the reward....

He pulled out a PDA and saw the Gundark had undocked and was underway. He pushed the medic droid aside, "Thanks alot, but I don't have time for this...."

He ran off for his ship. After reaching it he took off. The Gundark had already entered unknown space by the time he got underway.

***

Milo smiled, "Nice and easy, Katie. Good work. Those starmaps really paid off. Just take us through these clusters of distorted space and we should be fine. If you need anything, I'll be questioning our Bounty Hunter friend Ekire captured."

Milo walked off to the brig and nodded to Tepe, "OK, who the hell are you, which of us are you after, and who hired you?"

Katarn07
02-11-2004, 08:56 PM
Milo looked to Ekire. He could tell by the way he eyed both Zofire and Tepe that he trusted neither of them. Milo couldn't say he could either but both would prove valueable in finding Dooru's treasure.

Milo hoped he could earn their trust and the only way he could do that would be to be completely honest with them both. He continued to talk to Tepe, "OK. May I ask how long you've been following us? How much do you know about 'this thing we're looking for' anyhow? It's an awfully stupid thing to go attacking some of us for info on for what could be a simple moisture vaporator condensor."

Milo frowned, "If that's the case, why'd you follow us?"

Kate appeared and started beeping and whistling warnings. A ship was following them but was caught in one of the anomalies. Kate also detected a radio signal coming from Tepe's cell. Milo turned back to Ekire, "The bastard's having us tailed as we waste time with him. Zofire, Malia? To the turrets. Ekire, keep questioning him and see what you can get from him."

Milo and Kate returned to the cockpit of the Gundark.

Tepe looked Ekire. "Why I followed you? I'm a crazy man. That's why..." Tepe said and looked at his suit on the corner. "If I just could have my armor back and then join to you guy's...

Milo stared at the pair of Z-95s that flew out beyond firing range. He frowned, "Hmm, appears Tepe's got more friends than I had guessed. Katie, I want IDs on them before we start shooting. I wanna know who I'm killing."

Kate whistled and did as told. Milo watched the aurabesh data appear on the monitor and he furrowed his brow, "Shadrak? Never heard of him.... He must be a pal of Tepe's. Who's the other one?"

Kate took a moment longer and Milo's face scowled when he saw who it was, "Otto? Ahh, the bastard has a name."

Milo thumbed the comm switch, "Malia? Zofire? Aim for the second Headhunter. Blow it outta space if possible. Disable the first; I want him alive."

Tepe grunted and smashed the cuffs to the chair and attacked towards Ekire. His hand was going towards Ekire's face and his other hand was disabling the blaster. When Ekire was on the ground, Tepe said: "You just had to make me do that, ha?" and sat down on the chair again so nothing else would happen that he hadn't beleave to happen

Otto left the sector and headed back to the space station to get his newly obtained spacecraft.

Milo watched as Shady's ship froze in place and its systems started shutting down according to the sensor readings. He looked to Kate, "Weapons are down. Shields are down. Engines are down.

Zofire gets up and heads towards the main deck. With a quick flick of her wrist, Zofire tosses a little device to the back of the ship. "When the time is right, I'll push the buttom and cause a blast. This way they will think it is caused by another ship shots." Zofire signs quickly to R9 to move away. R9 goes towards the left of Zofire.

Otto returned in the cargo hauler and saw Shady was caught in an anomoly. The Gundark was busy towing him in. This would be his chance of action.

He smiled to himself as he scanned the ship before moving into attack range, Some sorta det pack in the aft of the ship. The girl must've decided to help me. Shady's timing couldn't have been better either. Milo can't act fast enough to disable the tractor beam and bring his defenses online.

Otto continued to near the Gundark undetected. These anomolies must be disrupting his sensors. He hasn't aborted in towing Shady. 5 klics.... 4 klics.... 3 klics.... 2 klics.... 1....

Otto smiled after coming into range and squeezed the trigger.

Zofire notices that the ship rocked. "We are under attack again." Zofire yells out.

Zofire rushes to a turret and is followed by R9. "Okay...now is the time." she thought to herself. Zofire pushes a small button on her armor and sets the detpack off.

Ekire took a quick glance at the sensors. They confirmed his suspicions. He ran over to Milo.
"There was no ship near the area of the last explosion. Unless they're cloaked, it's impossible for the blast to have come from outside.

(Out of Character: Isn't Otto's ship firing at the Gundark? If it is, then the ship's sensors could detect Otto's ship.)

((Yeah, but wouldn't the ship be detected near the tractor beam, not behind the ship, where the pack detonated))

((meh, joke misunderstood but what's said is said and I'll go with it and explain the error))

Milo looked at a monitor and nodded, "You're right. No one coulda inflicted that much damage from that far of range. What are you suggesting?"

Kate whistled her thoughts and Milo read them and explained to Ekire, "Perhaps the anomolies are affecting Otto's weapons systems and giving them more power. I'm not an expert, but I've heard of incidents like it happening near the beginning of the Civil War in a skirmish between the Rebels and Imps---"

An alarm went off and Milo snapped his attention to a technical readout of the Gundark, "Aww, Sithspit! We're losing coolant pressure in the primary tank! Katie, go and see what you can do. Ekire, go get Tepe's friend and throw him in the brig. His ship should be retrieved by now. I'll take us deeper into the expanse; hopefully I'll lose Otto in one of the anomolies. It's the best we can hope for."

Ekire ran to the hangar, roughly pushed Shady out of his ship and roughly threw him in the brig, stunning both Tepe (again for good measure) and him with his blaster, not wanting any distractions. He then ran back to the bridge.
"Done. Anything else?"

"Long time no see, Shady" Tepe said quietly and heard an answer: "Yeah, you know... Business is business. Can't leave it alone without a good chief"

((You see the resemblance with Tepe and Shady and Luke and Han))

"R9. Help Kate with that." Zofire says. R9 goes towards kate and extends a little arm from inside. He quickly works on it.

Zofire tries to help out. She thought to herself, "Good thing they didn't suspect it was me." She dismounts herself from the turret's seat and look over to the sensors. "Seems like we have to land soon or we'll be sitting ducks." Zofire says.

"It had to be sabatoge," Malia muttered to herself, thinking about the explosion. "No way a ship could have snuck up on us like that. But who did it? Probably somebody back before we took off."

"Milo, I'm gonna check out the damage." Said Ekire, and headed for the back of the ship.

Kate had a report ready by the time Ekire arrived. She beeped and chirped to him and her binary code was translated onto a monitor. The hyper drive would be rendered useless in a matter of hours and there would not be enough coolant for a jump of a few parsecs.

The damage was indeed internal and she suspected Tepe of being the sabateur.

***

Milo struggled at the controls of the Gundark. Otto had somehow mapped out the sector of space and avoided all the anomolies. He yelled into a comlink, "How's it look, Katie? Aww, Sithspit! I can't shake him. We have enough coolant pressure for one last jump and I'd rather risk it then being blown into space dust by this goon."

He switched the frequency of the comlink so everyone on the ship could here, "This is the captain speaking, we're about to experience some brief turbulence. Please brace for impact."

Pushing the levers foward, Milo watched the stars transform into a tunnel of light as they went to lightspeed.

Zofire straps R9 against the wall. "You know what, I'm gonna fix it right away." she says to R9. Zofire regrets damaging the ship and quickly works on the wires that were messed up. She figures out which wire should be connected and pulls some spare wires out of one of the pockets on her belt. She quickly connects them quickly. "That should do it. After all, I did built my own ship." Zofire mends the wires. "Check if it works now." she shouts to Milo.

02-22-2004, 02:44 AM
Ekire watches Zofire fix the wires. He then walked over to Milo.
"I disagree with Kate's report. Unless Tepe can get to the back to the ship and back to his cell in less than a minute, he's innocent." He whispered. He pointed to his wristchrono (watch), which helped him tell how long he had been unconcious in certain situations.

The Gundark was in another part of the galaxy, well out of the known regions of space. Dooru had mapped this region out and this held the coordinates of his last known location. They were close. Everyone was on the bridge now, save for Tepe and Shady. Kate was flying the ship, Milo and Ekire stood apart from the rest.

Milo nodded to Ekire and agreed out of Zofire's earshot range, "Yeah, I was suggesting he planted a bomb before you captured him but it would appear we have another suspect. Kate shoulda been able to fix that first. Afterall, she is the chief mechanic onboard. Keep your eye on Zofire. I didn't trust her much but I'm doubting her word more and more...."

"I told you we shouldn't have trusted a bounty hunter." Said Ekire. "My guess is Otto convinced her on our last stop, she's been more detached since then."

"Hmm, that must be it. I don't wanna throw her in the brig with Tepe though and no way in hell I'm letting him out. What should we do?"

Zofire gets up from where she is at and sits next to R9. While sitting, she notices Jokemaster glazing her way many times, but ignored him. She pushes a small button of her forearm.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Back at the docking bay of the cantina, many thieves try to get to Zofire's Slave II, but were shocked once they touched it. "Damn it" one thief said to another. All of a sudden, ship starts it's engines up. "What the?" the other thief said. Moments later the force field diminishes and the Slave II blasts to space.

Milo looks Zofire's way and sees her look away when he tries to make eye contact with her. He nods to Ekire, "OK. I suppose that's all we can do right now. We're near our objective so if she pulls anything, we can just leave her on the planet to die."

He looks to the star map Kate had made and informs everyone, "Alright, we're nearing the last known coordinates of Mathyu Dooru's ship. We'll be there in another four and a half hours so I suggest you get some rest. I've been running scans on long range sensors since we got in this sector and it appears it is uninhabited and very hospitable. Prepare for a bit of hiking and digging. Dooru's ship is buried in the surface some ways down, not sure how far yet. We'll need to tunnel through the ground to an entrance and then deal with the ghost crew if you believe in that sorta thing before we get to the cargo hold."

"I don't believe in ghosts, only in long-lasting security systems." Says Ekire.

Zofire unstraps R9 and goes to one of the rooms the is unoccupied. R9 quickly follows her. Once in the room Zofire presses a button to slide the door to the entrance of the room down. She whispers to R9, "Stay guard R9, I don't trust these people."

Zofire places a pistol underneath her pillow. She then takes off her armor and sets it aside next to her. Zofire rests on top of the bed face up and places her hands underneath the pillow. She grabs the gun with her right hand just in case.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Slave II continues to journey thru space. It follows the signal that is given off by Zofire's armor and blasts into hyperspace.

A few minutes later Ekire walked over to Zofire's room and knocked on the door.
