1. Everyone plays their own characters. You can also play roles of common enemies such as Stormtroopers, Rodians, Weequays, etc.
2. Keep it in the Star Wars realm. (By this I mean do moves that you will see basically in a Star Wars movie/game...you can still be a character that is not based on a Star Wars character)
3. No Godmode
Thank you :D
The Hunt for Teraytiro
A ruthless gang leader who goes by the name of Teraytiro Rodiar is feared by most people throughout the galaxy. Rodiar's infamous gang went to the planet Ziltenia in search of precious stones called Zilter (named after the planet). When in search of these stone, the notorious gang was discovered by the New Repulic on Ziltenia. On the run from the New Republic, the gang shot and killed many people. Amongst all the shooting, Zionia (Zofire Fett's best friend), was almost killed by these mecenaries. Years after the incident, Zofire swore to have revenge for the actions of Rodiar's gang and put a stop to all criminals.
And now our adventure begins...
In a cantina located on Nar SHaddaa...
"R9...run me up new data on this Rodiar." said Zofire
*R9 beeps, whistles and a datapad slides out of it*
*Zofire reaches and grabs the datapad*
"Thanks R9," says Zofire
*Zofire pats R9 on the head*
"Hmmm...it says here that Teraytiro was last seen on Nar Shaddaa." says Zofire while looking carefully at the datapad.
Searching the cantina, Zofire says, "R9, Who here do you think knows something about Teraytiro?"
*R9 beeps and whistles*

"Pardon me, did you say Teraytiro? Sorry for eavesdropping, but I've spent about a week looking for this guy. I hear the New Republic is willing to pay big for their agents for his capture."
"I am not Kyle Katarn. I am his clone, a failed Imperial Experiment. I have his skills in almost everything, except as you may or may not have noticed..."
*shows right arm to be a robotic replacement*
"I'll be willing to offer my services to help you in any way possible. My friend in the NRI calls me Gunny."
02-02-2003, 12:16 AM
"Interesting. Unfortunately, my best friend had a bad incident with his gang back on Ziltenia. Almost costing her life actually. My name is Zofire Fett and this is R9."
*R9 whistles and beeps*
*Zofire shakes Katarn07's hand with her right and extends her left hand to the empty seat across from her*
"Please have a sit."

02-02-2003, 10:19 PM
Zofire continues, "By the way, have you seen a guy by the name of Jokemaster? I heard he lives on Nar Shaddaa. He wrote a report on Teraytiro. Very interesting report actually, I was just wondering if he could give me more information on Teraytiro."
02-03-2003, 02:52 PM
*arrives at cantina, heads to the bartender and talks to him, taking notes*
02-03-2003, 03:47 PM
*Zofire looks at the datapad and studies Jokemaster's picture*
Zofire says to herself, "I wonder where he is.."
*R9 beeps as Jokemaster enters the cantina*
*Zofire looks up and spots Jokemaster taking notes onthe counter*
"Excuse me for a second," she says to Katarn07.
*Goes up to the bartender and orders a drink*
Zofire speaks to Jokemaster, "Very interesting report you wrote Jokemaster. My name is Zofire Fett."
02-03-2003, 04:10 PM
"thanks, not many people bother reading through the contact sections of them."
02-03-2003, 04:19 PM
"We can sit at the table where I am at and discuss about Teraytiro over there. I was wondering if you can give me some more information on Teraytiro." says Zofire.
*Points at the table where Katarn07 and R9 are at*
02-03-2003, 04:36 PM
Katarn waves to the two, "Call me Gunny."
"I don't know much about this guy. I have never met him, but was hired by the NRI because of my skill in this field of work. I am as proficient with a gun as my host... Wish I could say the same for my..." he leans over the table and shows off his saber hilt. "Just an initate with that thing, so don't expect me to use it for you..."
He looks to Jokemaster, "Like I said, I don't know anything about him. What info you have will be our first lead..."
02-03-2003, 04:48 PM
"All I know is this Teraytiro is a gang leader. That's it...I have no other information about that scum." Zofire replies.
As Zofire, Katarn07, and Jokemaster were having there discussion about Teraytiro, five Rodians, all fully armed with blaster rifles, enter the cantina and head to the two Weequays that were seated in the far right of the cantina's entrance. They start to whisper to each other and glance over to where Zofire, Katarn07,and Jokemaster were located at.
*Zofire glances quickly to where the Rodians and Weequays were at*
Zofire whispers to both Katarn07 and Jokemaster, "Two of those Rodians I recognize back on Ziltenia."
02-03-2003, 04:58 PM
"That's Guro. The Weequay, I mean. I can't believe I didn't see him!" Katarn07 hisses through clenched teeth, "I have had a few run ins with him. This arm is because of him. I have a score to settele with him."
Katarn gets up, but the 7 aliens run up and pull the trigger.
The bartender dives for cover, "No blasters!"
Katarn07 rips out his E-11 and takes a few shots at the Rodians. He downs one, but the other 6 flee.
Guro screams into a comlink, "Phase 1 complete, boss! They're all yours!"
The two Rodians Zofire recognized split up along with Guro from the rest of the group.
Katarn07 turns to his comrades, "Shall we pursue?"
He doesn't wait for a response, he runs into a crowded market place with his E-11 out, but he has lost sight of both parties.
02-03-2003, 05:54 PM
Zofire cautiously heads to the cantina entrance.
*Takes out her commlink and contacts Katarn07*
"Gunny, come in Gunny, tell me the situation from where u are at? You gotta be careful. These Rodians and Weequays are very sneaky. I suggest you get some cover of some sort.
Zofire continues, "They probably want to lure us out so they can snipe us. Be aware of the other buildings."
As soon as Zofire finishes, she quickly stand aside the entrance and calls R9.
"R9, come over here" Zofire says to R9.
*R9 beeps and whistle and heads to Zofire*
"Give me those electrobinoculars," Zofire demands.
*R9 beeps and a little slot opens. A little mechanical hand gives Zofire her electrobinoculars*
"Thanks R9." Zofire says. "OK, where are you Rodians?" Zofire whispers to herself while looking outside with her electrobinoculars.
She speaks to Jokemaster, "Jokemaster, be prepare. I know these Weequays and Rodians are not through with us."
02-03-2003, 07:10 PM
*with his blaster already drawn*
"I know, I escaped from them while writing the report, got to close to his base"
02-03-2003, 07:30 PM
After looking through her electrobinoculars, Zofire returns to the spot where she was taking cover.
*Zofire takes out her disruptor rifle*
"I saw about two Rodians with disruptor rifles. There are located on the fourth floor on that building right across from us." Zofire continues, "I'm going to try and snipe one of them. I know I'm not going to have enough time to snipe both of them."
*Zofire peeks around the corner and targets one of the Rodians*
"Ok. I got one in my sight." Zofire says to Jokemaster.
*Snipes one of the Rodians in the head and quickly takes cover*
As soon as Zofire quickly takes cover, a shot from the Rodian sniper barely missing her head.
"That was close...too close" Zofire says while taking a breather.
"To hit the other one is going to be tricky since they know I'm near the entrance." Zofire says to R9 and Jokemaster.
"I know. Go to the second floor and try to snipe the other Rodian."
"Here.." Zofire hands her disruptor rifle to Jokemaster.
"They know I am here but not you."
*Arms herself with her blaster rifle*
02-03-2003, 08:56 PM
*attaches some kind of camera to gun, allowing him to aim without exposing himself*
"got it, be careful. Here"
*Gives her one of the cameras and a screen.*
"attach it to your blaster to look around corners"
02-03-2003, 09:09 PM
*Zofire attaches camera to her blaster rifle*
"Ok, all set. Contact me when you have sniped the other Rodian." She says to Jokemaster.
While Zofire waits for Jokemaster to contact her, she heads to the dead Rodian's body and grabs his thermal detonators and blaster rifle.
"This might come in handy" Zofire says as she grabs the Rodian's gun.
*Zofire returns were R9 was at*
"I forgot, I have spare parts of a disruptor rifle. Just in case the original one gets damaged. R9, can you give me those spare parts?"
*R9 beeps and a mechanical arm from R9 extracts all the disruptor rifle from it's storage space*
*Zofire takes apart the Rodian's gun*
She says to R9, "Thanks R9.....Good, now I have enough parts."
*R9 whistles in response*
*Zofire assembles a modified disruptor rifle*
"I left my other modified disruptor rifle on Slave 2." Zofire says sadly. "Ok. Since I can only fire once every 5 seconds with the original disruptor rifle, I modified this disruptor rifle to fire 1 shot every 2 seconds." Zofire continues speaking to R9 "Since it has parts of an DE-11 blaster rifle. My opinion.... this rifle is better than the one on Slave 2"
*Shows modified disruptor rifle to R9*
*R9 beeps and whistles in response*
02-03-2003, 09:23 PM
Jokemaster is set with the Rodian in his sites. Before he squeezes the trigger, the target collapses out of the window.
"Relax, you two..." Katarn07's voice crackles through the comlink, "I knew they were there, but if it weren't for you drawing me outta their scopes, I may be nothing more than charred steak."
Katarn07 is a half a klic from his associates. He turns down an alley and speaks, "I am at some joint called Crystal Stars Casino. I have tracked your Rodian pals from Ziltenia. I take it Guro and his Weequay pal are elsewhere. You'd better get over here and cover their escape if we wanna get any info from there. I won't be able to take 'em alive without you."
02-03-2003, 09:32 PM
"Roger that Gunny, I'm heading your way as soon as I meet up with Jokemaster." Zofire replies.
02-03-2003, 09:37 PM
Katarn07 takes out his macrobinoculars and puts them to his eyes. He sees the cantina he had started his pursuit in and watches Zofire cautiously make her way to Jokemaster.
He put the comlink to his lips and speaks softly, "I think I have spotted Goru and his thug. They don't see me, or you for that matter. They're entering a nightclub several klics from here... We'll need a transport to reach that area. We'd best finish these Rodians off first. Then we'll hit the club."
02-03-2003, 09:37 PM
"got it, I got a transport not too far from here, meet me in front of cantina"
02-03-2003, 09:47 PM
*Zofire heads outside with R9*
"A lot of wreckage out here R9, we should be able to blend in Jokemaster."
*Zofire hides behind a dumpster, takes out her electrobinoculars and looks to the building to the right of the cantina's entrance.*
"Hmm, I see three Rodians on the 10th Floor of that building."
*Points building to Jokemaster and Katarn 07*
"I got them"
*Points gun to the building and fires 3 shots extremely quick*
"Ok, coast is clear from the snipers" she says to both Katarn07 and Jokemaster.
02-03-2003, 09:48 PM
"Good work, Zofire. Wait!"
Katarn07 looks up to see the Ziltenian Rodians leaving. He rips his comlink off his belt, "Hey you two! They're getting away! Screw the transport, cut them off or we won't be able to get them!"
Katarn07 runs a lot faster than the Rodians due to the fact he is tapping into the Force. He rips out his E-11 and takes aim and fires a warning shot just above the Rodians' heads.
"Need some help here before smoe more snipers take position."
02-03-2003, 09:50 PM
*Zofire sees the Rodians running and takes out her blaster rifle and shots the Rodians on their legs and arms*
"I got them" she says to Katarn07 over the commlink.
02-03-2003, 09:55 PM
Katarn picks one up by his shirt, "Hey, pal!"
He signals Zofire to take the other one and they retreat to Jokemaster's position. Fortunately the air taxi hasn't taken off yet.
"We'll get the info from these slimy Womps inside the taxi."
Katarn07 pushes the Rodians in with his right mechanical arm and gets in himself with E-11 drawn. "Driver, take us to that nightclub over there."
Katarn07 pull Zofire and Jokemaster in ,"Hurry up, we may not have much more time."
02-03-2003, 09:59 PM
Disgusted, Zofire takes the other Rodian by the shirt and says "You're lucky you are not going to die...yet"
*Zofire shoves the Rodian in the taxi*
"R9, lets go!" Zofire shouts out to R9.
*R9 whistles and gets in the taxi*
02-03-2003, 10:02 PM
*jumps into taxi just before driver pulls out*
02-04-2003, 12:48 PM
*Zofire takes of her helmet*
Zofire grabs one of the Rodians by the shirt and says to the one she grabbed, "Where can I find Teraytiro."
The Rodian responds back, "Ita duta wuta Teraytiro."
(Translation: I don't know whose Teraytiro.)
"Ok, maybe this will jog your memory." Zofire replies back.
*Zofire grabs the other Rodian by the shirt, pushes him against the door of the taxi, takes out her blaster rifle, aims it at the Rodian's head, blasts a hole at the Rodian's head, and shoves the body out of the taxi.*
Zofire grabs the other Rodian by the shirt again and says angrily through clench teeth, "Now tell me, where can I find Teraytiro? Unless you want to whind up like your friend."
*Zofire points the blaster rifle to the frighten Rodian's head*
"OK, OK!!!!!!!" screams the Rodian.
While the taxi is heading towards the nightclub, the Rodian tells Zofire, Katarn07, and Jokemaster that Teraytiro Rodiar is heading to a entertainment district in Coruscant to meet up with someone that will help him make a lot of money.
02-04-2003, 01:30 PM
"let me guess, we're gonna crash the meeting?"
02-04-2003, 01:59 PM
"I guess so. But first we have to deal with the remaining Rodians and Weequays. If we don't deal with them, then Teraytiro is going to find out that we are tailing him. That scum probably thinks we are already dead by now. When we get out of the taxi, we must move quickly and unnoticable. This way they don't suspect that we are following them." Zofire says to Jokemaster.
*Zofire points the blaster rifle to the Rodian's head again*
"Tell me when is this meeting of Teraytiro!" demands Zofire to the Rodian.
"TUKTUTA...TUKTUTA!!!!" the Rodian screams in fright.
"Good, we have plenty of time to crash that meeting." Zofire says to both Katarn07 and Jokemaster.
02-04-2003, 03:50 PM
Katarn07 pushes Zofire away fron the Rodian, "We need him alive yet to tell us where to find Teraytiro, but can't let him go..."
He turned to the driver, "You will take this gentleman to the garbage district."
The Dug driver laughed, "Not without half a thousand credits! That is half way across this sector!"
"You will take him there free of charge!" Katarn reiterated.
The Dug shook his head, "Nothing doing, he's getting out with you 4..."
The taxi reached its destination and the 5 of them got out. Katarn07 threw the Rodian to the ground, "You may not get the chance to live. Keeping you alive is to hazardous to our mission..."
He turns to R9, "I am sure you can handle this thug. Surly you must have some sorta gadgets inside of you." He turns to Zofire, "Listen, stealth is not my thing, and if our cover is blown, it'll all be for naught. I suggest you two go in while I create a diversion elsewhere to draw the guards from Goru's location. And if we do split up, we can handle snipers easier. What do you say?"
02-04-2003, 03:58 PM
*Zofire shakes her head in agreement and puts on her helmet*
"R9, if that scum moves..Zap him." Zofire said to R9. Zofire continues, "I doubt he is going to move. After all, he is cripple."
"We should all go in the nightclub as a group and then inside we can split up. Hopefully, we will not get detected. If we do, I hope your diversion works Gunny." Zofire says.
02-04-2003, 04:10 PM
Katarn07 smiles, "Give me a few moments and that nightclub's bouncers should be scattered all over this here plaza..."
Katarn07 produces a small flat, circular disk, "Sequencer charge places in the kitchen should do nicely. I am sure that the ovens would cause massive explosions. Once the kitchen blows, move as fast as possible. I'll follow you then, Zofire... What should we do when we find Goru?"
02-04-2003, 04:17 PM
Zofire responds back, "We should see if we can get any information out of him. Make sure he doesn't contact anyone because if that happens, Teraytiro is going to know we are after him." Zofire continues, "After this whole thing is done. We should all meet up in the hanger and go to Coruscant. Ok, let's move in."
02-04-2003, 04:24 PM
Katarn nods, "OK, I'll secure a ship for you guys."
He sprints off using the shadows for cover and disappears from view. Moments later, an explosian is heard from where Zofire and Jokemaster are standing.
Katarn07 speaks through his comlink to them, "Phase 1 complete. I'll hold off the guards as long as I can and secure a ship then. Proceed with haste. Teraytiro may be getting away if he knows of my distraction!"
02-04-2003, 04:34 PM
As soon as the explosion happens, everyone from the nightclub fled the place. As Zofire enters the nightclub she can see Guro and the others heading towards the exit. Zofire also sees that Guro has his commlink in his hand.
*Zofire quickly takes out her blaster and shots the commlink out of Guro's hand before he can even contact Teraytiro.*
Guro and his group quickly pushes tables over for cover and start firing at Zofire and Jokemaster. Both Zofire and Jokemaster also quickly pushes tables over for cover.
After taking a few shots from her blaster rifle, Zofire contacts Katarn07 on commlink, "We got them cornered Gunny, the two Weequays and Rodians can not get out." She continues, "Teraytiro doesn't seem to be here...BLASTED. He must have already left the planet."
02-04-2003, 04:50 PM
"Roger that. He just took off. There is a transport for the taking. Do you have a ship or not?"
Katarn07's voice is hard to hear through blaster fire, "Hold on you two, I'm on my way to assist. The hangar is free for the taking; I have cleared out all resistance."
Katarn07 appears behind Goru and his thugs. Jokemaster and Zofire can see him in the door way.
"Gentleman..." Katarn07 waits for them to turn around before placing his mechanical fist into Goru's face. He dislocates the Weequay' Jaw and kill the rest of the thugs with his E-11.
"There we are Zofire. Have a ship? If not, the hangar is this way!"
He picks up Goru and heads to her and Jokemaster.
02-04-2003, 05:08 PM
*waves to Katarn, quickly regretting it by drawing fire*
(to Zofire)"use the camera!!!"
*points his blaster with camera over the table, watching what he will hit through the camera, ripping the rodian a hole on his head
02-04-2003, 05:51 PM
Katarn07 throws Guro behind the table, "Well, we've been cut off from the hangar... I've got a ship not far from here. We could easily make it from here. No time to debate, let's go!"
02-04-2003, 06:04 PM
*tosses flashbang over counter while the group makes their escape*
02-04-2003, 06:23 PM
Katarn07 grabs Goru and leads the group foward through the blinding light to the doorway.
After leaving the nightclub, they run through the streets with R9 and the Rodian for a while under instructions of Katarn07. He finally manages to lead them to a spaceport, where a old molding freighter sits.
"Don't even start on how she looks. Its a YT-800 Celphi, and yes, I realize the irony as how Kyle Katarn started out in one of these babies while trying to rescue his partner, Jan Ors..."
Katarn07 leads them onboard, throws the Rodian and Goru into his cell, and runs to the cockpit. "Alright, we gotta get outta here. Buckle up, getting through the shileding of the moon may be a bumpy ride!"
Indeed it was. Katarn07 manages to fly out of the moon's atmosphere, "OK, I'm making the jump to hyperspace!"
He pulls back the lever and the stars outside of the viewport transform into a star tunnel. Katarn07 sits back, "It'll take about a day to get there. It will take that long for Teraytiro as well. He is flying nothing better than this ship..."
02-04-2003, 08:28 PM
(to Zofire) "so, what did Teraytiro do to you?"
02-04-2003, 10:55 PM
"Well, technically, he didn't do anything to me. But his gang almost cost my best friend her life. I hate that scum with all my heart. Teraytiro will regret ever stepping foot on Ziltenia." says Zofire in response.
*Zofire lowers her head and takes of her helmet.*
(Out of Character: Sorry for the delay. I have karate class every Tuesdays and Wednesdays so I might respond like after 10:00PM...in New Jersey. On Mondays, after 12:00PM. On Thursdays, after 3:00PM. On Fridays, after 7:00AM. On Saturdays, after 12:00PM. On Sundays, after 9:00PM or 10:00PM. Oh yeah, almost forgot. Just imagine Zofire's ship Slave 2 is on Coruscant. :D)
02-05-2003, 04:17 PM
Katarn07 sits back in his chair, "Well, I guess we should interegate those goons back there now..."
02-05-2003, 10:44 PM
"If they try anything funny, I'm afraid the outcomes are going to be nasty." Zofire says to Katarn07.
*Zofire Fett takes of her helmet and looks out the ship's window. She then closes her eyes for a couple of seconds and opens her eyes again.*
Zofire continues speaking, "Gunny, I suggest you interegate Guro since you two met before. Jokemaster and I will be right behind you, just in case they try something."
02-06-2003, 04:24 PM
Katarn07 goes to the cells, opens the forcefield, and immediately Guro is on him with a knife. It gets him in the leg, but Katarn07 is forced to bash the Weequay in the head with his heavy metallic hand, killing him.
The Rodian recoils in fear, "Where can we find Teraytiro?"
The Rodian shutters, "He is going to a club, called Bantha Oasis..."
"Bantha Oasis? Why?"
The Rodian shakes his head, "I told you in the taxi, I don't know why! To make money is all I know."
Katarn07 looks at Guro's dead body and back to the Rodian, "I'm sure you are telling the truth. We'll need you to give us coordinates to the club."
Katarn07 activates the field and turns to his comrades, "You thin he's telling the truth?"
02-06-2003, 04:30 PM
"probably, the guys scared to death. Ask him how many guys will be with Teraytiro"
02-06-2003, 04:31 PM
*Zofire looks at Katarn07's leg*
"Are you ok Gunny?" Zofire asks.
Zofire continues, "I don't know if these scums are telling the truth. I never did trust a Rodian after that horrible incident my friend went through.
Zofire looks in the cell and screams at the Rodian, "If you are lying, I will be sure I would be the first one to kill you!"
02-06-2003, 04:39 PM
Katarn07 takes out a bandage from a med kit located a few feet aways and wraps it around the wound, "Yeah, no poison."
"We should wait on killing him. It's your choice, but the NRI hates when their agents don't take prisoners. My host, the real Katarn, was always hit up for the way he dealt with prisoners..."
02-06-2003, 04:42 PM
*Zofire heads to R9 and pats R9 on the head*
"How much time is left to reach Coruscant?" Zofire asks Katarn07.
Zofire continues speaking, "My ship, Slave 2 is on that planet. I traveled to Nar Shaddaa on another ship so that they wouldn't be able to know I was on that planet."
02-06-2003, 05:06 PM
"by the way, how much time will we have from when we reach corusant to the meeting?"
02-06-2003, 05:19 PM
"From the Hanger to the entertainment district? About 30 mintues. That is if there is no trouble on the way to the district." Zofire responds.
*Zofire goes on one knee and starts checking up on R9*
02-06-2003, 05:34 PM
"Is there enough time for me to go pick somethings up?"
02-06-2003, 05:36 PM
Zofire responds, "We have to see how far it is from the hanger. What exactly are you going to pick up? By the way, I know the coordinates of that club. No need to ask that scum."
02-06-2003, 05:42 PM
"Well, this bucket has been modified for speed. Nothing else. I don't go in by ship; it's not my thing. We could contact the NRI for some forces. Kyle Katarn and his partner, Jan Ors, owe me a favor or two after rescuing them on Orgos Prime; maybe they can help us..."
Katarn07 goes off to the comm room and sends a message to Mon Mothma. He leaves and returns as he waits for a reply, "OK, we may get some help on this. I am sure Teraytiro will have plenty of guards, more here on the capital than in the slums of Nar Shaddaa, you know?"
Console beeps, Katarn07 checks it, "Jan Ors is able to assist. Looks as if Kyle is recovring from some injuries he sustained while on a mission with Skywalker. She will prove of some use to us in the Raven's Claw..."
02-06-2003, 05:49 PM
Zofire speaks, "Good. I heard about this Jan Ors. Never met her though. Anyways, as soon as we arrive Coruscant, Jokemaster, you pick up your stuff. I am going to get some equipment of mine on Slave 2. It should be on the hanger. After that, lets head to Bantha Oasis. I suggest on this mission, we should go there undetected by Teraytiro forces. We wouldn't want him to flee from the place."
Zofire continues to speak, "When is Jan Ors going to meet up with us?"
02-06-2003, 05:55 PM
"I just gotta cash in a few favors from NRI, three in fact."
02-06-2003, 06:00 PM
Zofire responds, "No problem Jokemaster. While you do that, I'm going to my ship to get equipment."

"She'll escort us down in her ship, the Raven's Claw. After Jokemaster gets his favors, we will switch vessels and Jan will provide cover for us. Her ship is one fast vessel complete with a few concussion missles hidden on it. She'll provide air cover for us, no matter how we decide to attack."
Katarn07 motions them to follow him back to the cockpit, "Well, only a few more hours till we get there. I suggest we all get some rest. We must move with haste once we get to Coruscant... We'll head over to the New Republic district, drop you off Jokemaster, and then we'll pick up Slave II. What favors are you getting, Jokemaster, if you don't mind me asking of course..."
02-06-2003, 06:07 PM
"I've done three reports for free for them, in return for favors. I'm gonna get some heat signals and the like from the meeting place to know how many guys are there, then a reconissance photo from Teraytiro's base. After that I'm gonna check if they have any updates for the blaster-cams"
02-06-2003, 06:09 PM
"Interesting." Zofire says. Zofire continues, "Ok, well I'm going to get some sleep now. Thanks a lot Gunny and Jokemaster for helping me with this whole mission. By the way, where can I rest?" Zofire says.
02-06-2003, 06:17 PM
"I have converted the cargo bay to some sleeping quarters. 2 rooms, on your left past the head if you need to use it. Jokemaster and I can share a room. There are 3 cots in each room, nothing much, but it'll do. I think R9 can tell us when we arrive. I am getting some rest too. I have been on this guys tail for half the week with out a moments sleep..."
Katarn07 retires to his quarters.
02-06-2003, 06:34 PM
*Zofire goes to R9 and kneels on one knee.*
"R9, tell us when we arrive at Coruscant."
*R9 whistles and beeps in response*
As Zofire stands up again, she gently pats R9 on the head to show graditude. Zofire then raises her hand to signal and says to Katarn07 and Jokemaster,"I will see you tomorrow." After that, the door closes as she finishes going into room. R9 then starts to pace the hallway up and down really slowly.
02-06-2003, 09:58 PM
*lays his blaster and camera to be recharged and then heads to the quarters*
02-06-2003, 10:18 PM
As the ship travelled through space, it has finally send it's course to Coruscant.
*R9 starts to beep and whistle*
*Hearing R9 beeping and whistling, Zofire woke up.*
02-07-2003, 06:27 AM
*wakes up when he hears R9 beeping.*
"that was fast"
*gets up, heads to the bathroom and splashes some cold water on his face.*
02-07-2003, 07:37 AM
Zofire, already wide awake, says to Jokemaster, "There is food that I've prepared earlier. We should reach Coruscant in an two hour."
*Zofire starts polishing her armor*
02-07-2003, 04:05 PM
Katarn07 comes put with a rack of guns, "Here, I bring around some of these babies when on missions. Take what you watnt, all I need is a few thremal detonators, my DX-3 Disruptor Rifle, and my E-11."
Katarn07 takes a few peices of bantha meat that Zofire had prepared and eats them, followed by some bread and cheap drink.
"Jan Ors is on an intercept course. She will escort us to the NRI HQ and then we can get to your ship, Zofire."
02-07-2003, 04:44 PM
"Ok." Zofire replied back. "I still have thermal detonators from when we were on Nar Shaddaa. And for guns, I have my modified Tenloss DXR-6 Disruptor rifle. I'm going to get my modified DE-11 that is on my ship and some other weapons as well."
02-07-2003, 09:49 PM
"I'm just gonna pickup the updated blaster-cams, the satelite photos, and maybe some weapons"
02-07-2003, 09:54 PM
While putting on her armor, Zofire speaks to both Jokemaster and Katarn07, "Is the NRI located on Coruscant? The reason why I ask this question is because I am not too familiar with the NRI."
02-07-2003, 09:58 PM
*gives Katarn07 the "is it too classified for her?" look*
02-07-2003, 10:01 PM
"Its in the heart of the New Republic's Capital City... Jan Ors will take us there, though."
02-07-2003, 10:05 PM
Zofire replies, "Interesting."
02-07-2003, 10:12 PM
"remember, this doesn't leave the ship"
02-07-2003, 10:14 PM
"Don't worry. I won't say anything to anyone. I'll probably forget. haha" Zofire laughs.
02-07-2003, 10:19 PM
"Hey, even if you couldn't be trusted, the NRI is as secure as the Imperial City was back when Palpatine was in charge..."
Katarn07 started laughing after saying this, "Hey! Did you know my host fought his way through Imperial City after the Battle of Yavin? He was getting a lead on that Darktrooper project. he survived, even after showing down with Boba Fett..."
Katarn's smile faded, "Hey, it's hard not to notice your armor and ship name; what relation do you have to Fett, if any at all?"
02-07-2003, 10:45 PM
"Well..." Zofire pauses and looks down at the floor and then looks at both Katarn07 and Jokemaster. Zofire continues speaking, "...I don't know who are my parents. I was raised on Ziltenia and I found this armor is a case engraved with this symbol." She takes out her knecklance and shows them the symbol.
"There are many questions I will like to find out the answers to. Where did I come from...who are my parents. I know I am related to Jango and Boba Fett because of my last name. But then again...maybe I'm not" Zofire then approaches a window and continues speaking, "As for the ship, my father and I, or should I say foster father, found a blueprint on a ship in the same case that contained this Mandalorian armor. It took us 1 year to build that ship. Also a not was found that said Please take good care of Zofire Fett. By the writing, it was written by a women. Well after this mission, I'm going to continues to search for those answer to my many questions."
02-07-2003, 10:57 PM
Katarn07 didn't speak. He looked over to a display monitor, "Looks like Jan has met us. We should arrive at 1500..."
He leaves Zofire alone but after dropping from hyperspace, two Z-95 headhunters intercept with front canons blazing. Katarn07 turns around, "Hey, Zofire! We've got company! Only defense I have on this thing is the main turrets, you know how to man them? Jokemaster? I am going to evade the goons until Jan arrives. She can take them out with ease for us, but in the meantime..."
The ship shakes from the blasts, and Katarn07 is forced to steady the YT-800 Celphi and evade further attacks.
02-07-2003, 11:01 PM
"I know how to use just about any weapon."
*Zofire heads to the turret and starts it up*
"Give me the locations of these headhunters" Zofire shouts out to Katarn07
02-07-2003, 11:04 PM
"I'll get the leader in your sites! The other one is to far out, but is just managing to hit my shield generator! We've gotta take him out to..."
Katarn07 turns the nose of the ship down and lets the top side where Zofire is manning a turret can have easy shots at the Headhunter.
"There! Fire at will!"
02-07-2003, 11:09 PM
Zofire presses the trigger and tons of bolts from the turret starts to shread the armor of the Headhunter. Moments later, one of the Headhunter explodes.
"Got one!" Zofire screams out to both Jokemaster and Katarn07
02-08-2003, 10:50 AM
Katarn07 pulls up on the stick to his ship, but can't get the other one in his sits, "Son of a Gundark... This guy is good!"
More blasts from the enemy ship hit the Celphi and the lights go out. Katarn07 frowns, "That's never happened before..." He peeks a glance at his display and sees his hyperdrive has been destroyed and he was currently leaking plasma coolent.
"Sithspit! Hey, we've got a problem. Cease fire, cease fire!" One more blast and we're done for..."
The Headhunter was moving in for a second attack run, got to its starting position, and then turned to aim its cannons at them. "Not good..."
It never began to attack, it had exploded into a burst of flames and debris. The Ravens Claw flew into the area and over the speakers Jan Ors voice was heard, "Sorry about my delay, Gunny. I had to deal with a few buggars myself. I hope you guys didn't get into to much trouble. We may have to reschedule your plans. You guys can't fly around Coruscant like that; you're going to have to land in the NRI base and borrow a ship of your own. I'm sure the worst one there is better the thing your flying..."
Katarn07 nods as he evens out his deflector shield and turns off his power to weapons, "Yeah, we are in quite a situation aren't we? Well, I hope my passengers don't mind the delay..." He shuts off the intercom, "Zofire, you hear? We're getting to get a tour of the NRI HQ... I hope this doesn't interfere with our original plan..."
02-08-2003, 12:29 PM
*pockets a mini-computer*
"Jan is meeting us where?"
02-08-2003, 12:35 PM
"She'll escort us from here to the NRI HQ. We'll have to land in a seperate area than she will, this bucket of bolts will have to be repaired... I will take you both to Jan at the HQ. She'll then take you, Jokemaster, to get your favors cashed in. I'll take Zofire to my alternate ship, a YT-2000 getting upgraded to my needs, and we'll get her ship."
02-08-2003, 02:26 PM
Zofire says, "I've never been to the NRI, so going there will be a very interesting journey. I think we have plenty of time to crash that meeting on Coruscant."
Zofire stands up from the turret's seat, stretches, and heads to where Katarn07 and Jokemaster are at.
Zofire stands dead in her tracks with a frighten look on her face. "Where R9??" she asks.
In one of the rooms, Zofire, Jokemaster, and Katarn07 can here a slight whistling. Zofire heads towards the sound. The sound is coming from a pile of debris which was put there by the fight with the Headhunters.
"R9 is burried underneath all these debris!" she shouts out to Katarn07 and Jokemaster.
02-08-2003, 02:33 PM
Katarn07 shouts to Zofire, "I have a tool kit in my quarters! Get it, there is enough tools in there to repair this ship in midflight! Except for my hyperdrive..."
Katarn07 uses the strength of the Force and his mechanical arm to unbury the R2 unit. He rolls it out finally and takes a break, "Everything seems to be alright on the outside... but you'd best check his insides. I know nothing about these things. I had an R5 unit once who blew his top in a week. I had no clue how to fix it. I'm sure you can do it though. If not, the NRI can. Jan Ors is a pretty nifty mechanic."
02-08-2003, 02:46 PM
"I can fix just about everything." Zofire says with a smile.
Zofire then goes on one knee, and dusts off the debris.
"Everything is ok....thanks to this armor I put on him." Zofire says while tapping R9's body.
She then says to R9, "Everything is ok R9."
She then pats R9 on the head.
02-08-2003, 02:56 PM
"That's good. Sorry about that. This ship has had its share of skirmishes with all sorts of enemies... I guess I have to reinfoce the plating along the bulheads huh?"
The console beeped. Katarn07 flipped it, "Gunny?"
"Go ahead Jan."
"We're about to enter Coruscant's atmosphere, and due to the difficult navigation, I advise you set autopilot to the NRI HQ. I am sending you encrypted coordinates for the base's docking bays..."
"Thanks alot Jan. When can we expect to get there?"
"15 minutes. Short flight. See you there."
Katarn07 turned off the link, "Well, Zofire, I think you should take him in for a polishing at least. I'm sure he can use an oil bath as well. I've never met an astromech like him..."
02-08-2003, 03:03 PM
"Yeah, he sure needs a polishing now." Zofire laughs
*R9 whistles and beeps*
Zofire continues, "But he sure is one of a kind."
02-08-2003, 03:50 PM
"Wow...." Katarn07 muttered and pointed through the front view port of his ship, "Jan's course was a fast one. We're here."
He sat down in the cockpit and watched as massive skyscrapers flew by them. In front of them was the Ravens Claw and it was on its way to the NRI HQ, a massive skyscraper surrounded by other New Republic Buildings.
"Welcome back, agent Katarn07." The voice belonged to a New Republic flight tower controller, "You need repairs. Land in docking bay 133. We will provide transport to the base from there. I believe your new ship is completed and is in Docking Bay 41."
"Ten-Four." Katarn07 replied and settled his ship down in a large circular base that had a landing pad in it. The YT-800 Celphi landed with a clatter and the occupants were tossed about for a bit. "Whoops, I guess I never got those landing gear fixed eiter..."
He led the other 3 out of the ship and they entered a taxi that took them instantly to the NRI HQ with haste. Once they arrived, Jan greeted them, "Gunny, long time no see. Kyle can't be here today. I suppose Mon Mothma told you about his mishap with Luke on their first mission together."
"Yeah, but that's nothing. Remember Guro and that explosion. Speaking of which, we found him. He's dead now; turns out he was working for Terayitro..."
She frowned, "Really? Then this guys more powerful then we thought. Guro was running a gambling operation right here on Coruscant for months, but we chased him away."
"That's what Teraytiro must be doing here, then."
"Maybe. We can talk later, in private I mean. Speaking of which, you haven't introduced me to your friends..."
Katarn07 nods, "Oh, right. That is Zofire, Jokemaster, and Zofire's companion, R2-R9. Think we can get him some maintence?"
"Sure thing. I can clean him up. Follow me."
Jan Ors leads them off into the NRI HQ.
02-08-2003, 04:01 PM
"Really nice architecture this place has." Zofire says while she looks around.
"What do you know about Teraytiro Rodiar?" Zofire asks Jan Ors.
02-08-2003, 04:14 PM
Jan looked to the young woman and frowned, "Kyle and I were assigned to infiltrate his base once somewhere in the outer rim. We barely escaped. He is a wealthy man, and with wealth comes power. He has all sorts of security fortifications. I'm sure his base here on Coruscant is highly guarded as well. Kyle can't work for a few months. That's why they assigned Gunny to this. He is just as nifty with a gun, but...."
"My Jedi skills are nothing to brag about," Katarn07 finished off Jan's thought.
Jan nodded and smiled at her partners clone, "Well, Teraytiro is ruthless and his goons will stop at nothing to do his will. Even if it means killing innocents..."
Katarn07 cleared his throat at her, "Zofire knows quite well how he operates..."
The four arrive at the maintence staion. Jan takes R9 in, "I'll take care of R9 for you. He should be ready in no more than half an hour. Gunny, take Jokemaster to Mon Mothma and then take Zofire to your new ship. I thook it for a test run and let me tell you, it's a lot smoother ride than your Celphi..."
"I'll bet. Did you modify it like I asked?"
"Yeah, everything you requested is on it. The ship is better than both the Ravens Claw and my last ship, the Moldy Crow put together, Gunny. It'll help you out."
"Thanks alot Jan." He left Jan Ors and R9 and showed Jokemaster to a lift, "Mon Mothma is up here. Just ask the secretary to see her and tell her Gunny sent you. She'll make sure you get your favors fulfilled.
Katarn07 and Zofire walked down to the docking bays alone now, "OK. My new ship is great. I mean, Jan Ors modified it... We'll get your ship, pick up Jokemaster, and will be on our way. Sound good?"
02-08-2003, 04:20 PM
Zofire nods her head.
Zofire speaks, "I never knew that scum had a base on Coruscant."
Zofire then looks around, smiles, and asks Katarn07, "Is there anything to eatin this place?"
02-08-2003, 04:26 PM
"Best food is not here. It is just outside of New Republic territory, in the lower levels. I have a few buddies there that'll meet up with us. Maybe they know something about the whereabouts of Teraytiro too. I'll take you there on the way to Slave II."
The two arrive to Docking Bay 41, "Ahh. That's my new ship. The Sable Dove. Jan named it; she claims it flys as graceful as some bird called a dove. They're native to her homeworld of Alderaan."
Katarn07 takes her aboard, "All right. Here we are. Oh, I wouldn't wear that armor into the joint. You'll draw to much attention; especially if Teraytiro has some goons there."
he pulls back the lever and takes off, and flys the Sable Dove off to the lower levels of the planet.
02-08-2003, 04:34 PM
"Oh, no problem." Zofire says as she starts taking off her armor. "Where should I put it?"
02-08-2003, 04:47 PM
"There is a cargo compartment hidden to the left there, yeah." Katarn07 says after Zofire looks to a shadowy corner, "Put it there. If any one asks, you are a new agent for the NRI. Your name is Zo. Let's see if my pals are there. They have really good Nerf Steak there; Bantha Burgers; Bantha Stew; Womp Rat Chili... you name it, they've got it."
Katarn07 lands the Sable Dove several klics from the restraunt and they go off by foot. They were about to arrive when a Rodian bumped shoulders with Katarn07. Katarn07 swings around, expecting him to be Teraytiro's goons, but relizes it is Wra'fo, an ex-agent for the Rebellion turned bounty hunter, "Hey, Wra'fo. Long time no see. How you been keeping yourself busy?"
The Rodian shrugs, "I dunno, Gunny, drinking off my failures at AJ's Place."
"I'm headed here with my new partner, Zo. Wanna join us?"
"You buy me a Corellian Ale?"
"Umm... Looks like you have had a few to many, actually. How about some Java Juice?"
"You paying? Why not..."
The three go into AJ's Place, a little joint set up with neon lights in the window and some droid waitrsses, "What can I get you? Something to drink?"
Katarn07 points to Wra'fo, "He'll have a Java Juice. I'll have a Rodian Gin, and she'll have a..." Katarn07 looks to Zofire. Without her armor on, it is evident how young she really is, "Make it three Java Juices. Forget the gyn."
02-08-2003, 04:54 PM
While waiting for the drinks, Zofire looks around the place. "Interesting.." she mumbles to herself.
02-08-2003, 05:13 PM
"So, Wra'fo, got any info on a guy called Teraytiro Rodiar?"
The Rodian takes the drinks from the tray the droid sets down and hands them out, "Yeah. Yeah, my brother works for him. He's a dealer of sabacc at a club called Bantha Oasis. Know of it?"
Katarn07 nodded as helped the drunk Rodian add sugar to his drink, "Yeah. Yeah, as a matter of fact we were on our way there. You know what Teraytiro's doing there?"
"Uhhh... Nope. He makes alot of money. He had a Weequay running the place, but the NRI chased him away... Teraytiro runs the place now. My brother is made for life for his income!"
"Well, thanks for the info. I guess we can eat now. Excuse me, we're ready to order."
The waitress droid arrives and takes out a PDA and says, "Alright honey. What're you having?"
"We'll have a Nerf Steak dinner."
"Alright, that is our special today. It'll be out in a jiffy."
The waitress leaves and Wra'fo is developing a hangover as he sobers up. Katarn07 looks to Zofire and whispers, "So, what do you think? Should we go in by force or sneak into the base? They'll recognize me, but Jokemaster and you, without your armor, can visit as a couple of gamblers? Find out as much as you can, and then I will come with your equipment with Jan as our air support. We can take Teraytiro by force..."
Wra'fo hits his head on the table and swears, "Son of a Gundark!!!"
Katarn07 smiles at his old friend and gives the rest of his Java Juice to him.
02-08-2003, 05:50 PM
Zofire whispers to Katarn07, "Yeah, we will get more information on Teraytiro that way. Anyways, I prefer sneaking into the base. This will let us have the upper hand. Once in the base, I know we can get tons of information and maybe even stop Teraytiro in his tracks."
02-08-2003, 06:05 PM
"OK. I'll contact Jan then of our plans."
The waitress droid arives with a sizzling chuck of meat, "Nerf Steak, right off the grill. Enjoy. Can I get you more Java Juice?"
Katarn07 looks to Wra'fo and nods, "Yeah, get him another mug. I'll have some Juri Juice. Zo?"
The waitress comes back with a mug of Java Juice and 2 glasses of Juri Juice, "Here you are."
"OK, Zo. Sounds like a plan. Wra'fo, dig in. We'll be leaving after this, so here is some money for a ride home." Katarn07 puts some credits on the table and Wra'fo takes them, "Thanks alot Gunny."
Katarn07 divides the steak dinner onto three plates and hands them out, "This is much better than any synthetic garbage they have on Nar Shaddaa..."
02-08-2003, 06:18 PM
"Thank you." Zofire says as Katarn07 hands her the piece of the steak. Zofire then starts to eat. "How long have you two known each other?" Zofire asks Katarn07.
02-08-2003, 06:24 PM
"I'd tell you how we met, but that'd take to long. I met him two years ago. He was helped me out on a mission. But ever since his sister was killed, his work has been slipping and he is usually found drunk wandering the streets... I do my best to help him out."
Katarn07 puts some salt on his vegetables and turns to Zofire, "So, Zo, how did you get R9? You two have the strogest bond I've ever seen personally between droid and human..."
02-08-2003, 06:45 PM
*goes up the lift, asks the secretary if he can see Mon Mothma, and waits *
NRI analyst in waiting room: Ryan, what the hell are you doing here? I thought you said your ship got destroyed.
Jokemaster: Hey, that's never stopped me from delivering my report on time has it?
Analyst: No, usually you don't have an excuse
Jokemaster: True I guess.
Analyst: Seriously what brings you here?
Jokemaster: I'm turning in my favors
Analyst: What for?
Jokemaster: A job.
Secretary: Mon Mothma's ready for you
*Jokemaster goes in*
Mon Mothma: Hello Ryan
Jokemaster: I have the report.
Mothma: good, do you want to hold your payment again?
Jokemaster: no, I need to cash in all of the favors, I need an update for the blaster-cam and some satelite use
Mothma: Ok, I'll sign the order.
*Mon Mothma signs the order and Jokemaster heads to the tech and science department of the NRI*
02-08-2003, 07:22 PM
Back at the Diner, Zofire begins to tell Katarn07 her story about R9...
"When I was young, I was fascinated by droids. Everywhere I went, I have seen droids of different sizes and colors on Ziltenia. So one day I asks parents if we can have a droid. But I did not want a droid that was already made by someone else...I wanted a droid that is built my family, this way it can be unique."
Zofire pauses a moment and sprinkles salt and pepper on her steak. Then she continues speaking...
"Both my father and I are really good mechanics. He taught me everything. So the next day, we went to his shop to get parts for our droid. My father owns his own repair shop. In the backyard of the shop, we built R9 from scratch. At first, he was really clumsy. He kept on bumping into things in our home." Zofire laughs. "We noticed that his field vision and brakes were not working properly. So we brought him new parts from other shops because majority of my fathers parts were garbage." Zofire laughs again and continues to speak, "After we modified his field vision and brakes, we started to work on his armor. His armor are scraps from a Mandalorian armor."
Zofire points to herself so that Katarn07 can notcie that it was her Mandalorian armor.
"After we finished building him, my mother sprayed and painted his whole body. She is a wonderful artist."
After Zofire finished speaking, she starts to eat her steak.
02-08-2003, 07:33 PM
"Do you ever see your parents? I mean your foster parents?"
Katarn07 doesn't let her reply right away, "I have no family. I had 9 brothers, and all but two of them died when we escaped from that Imperial lab we were created in. Later, my brothers that had survived died. The cloning process wasn't calculated correctly. I was, however, and decided to join the New Republic to stop the remnants of the Empire from ever creating such a horrific thing again..."
A tear rolls down Katarn07's face and he curses the pepper Zofire used as he wipes it away with his mechanical hand. It is evident the pepper was not the cause of his sorrow...
He throws his fork onto his plate and pushes it to Wra'fo, "I'm not hungry."
He pulls out a comlink, "Hey Jokemaster? You through with your favors yet? We're going to be leaving soon... After Zo finishes her meal."
02-08-2003, 07:43 PM
"I am sorry to hear that." Zofire says to Katarn07. She continues, "I visit my parents here and there."
After that, she finishes her meal and pushes the plate aside.
"Ok, I am done."
02-08-2003, 07:49 PM
Katarn07 stares at his food disappear into Wra'fo's mouth as he waits for a response from Jokemaster. He puts it back, "he must have it turned off. I'll try again later. Jan will contact me when she is ready for him to come. See you around, Wra'fo. Hope you get better." His voice is still sounds monotone, but after clearing his throat he says in his normal voice, "Let's go Zo."
He leaves and walks to the Sable Dove with Zofire at his side. "That's nice. That you can see your parents, I mean. Well, we'd best get to your ship now."
They get on the Sable Dove and Katarn07 takes off and gets in line in a lane of traffic, "Where is it located?"
02-08-2003, 08:02 PM
Zofire replies, "If I remember correctly, the Slave 2 should be located at a place where they take care of ships. I believe the name of the place is Zotorn's Hanger. A droid by the name of Roizon is taking care of my ship. I just need to give them a ticket they gave me and pay them for taking care of it and then I could follow you back to the NRI headquarters."
02-08-2003, 08:21 PM
"Oh, I know of that place. Jan Ors was forced to give up her ship to them when she couldn't fix it up. They do good work."
Katarn07 pilots the ship over to the large facility filled with all sorts of ships, and construction droids buzzing about with parts in their claws.
"I see your ship. Its that Firespray, right? I can tell by the colors... Armor, droid, ship... Silver and Black are your colors."
Katarn07 lands the ship and lets Zofire leave with her armor, "I'll see you back at NRI HQ. Follow me."
02-08-2003, 08:52 PM
*a little before Katarn calls him*
Tech *looking at signed order*: the new models eh? Well you can get three for your latest job. Want to test them out?
Tech: You have to leave any electronics here, might cause interfierence with other inventions,
*Jokemaster leaves comlink and computer behind*
Tech: This model has transmitters, heat and night vision, and auto targeting, it'll show you where specific species or persons are.
Jokemaster: Can I try it out?
*jokemaster tries blasters out in range.*
Jokemaster: I'll take three
Tech: about the other requests, what do you want photographed
Jokemaster: The Bantha Oasis and Teraytiro's base, i want some heat signatures from both. Update me everytime a satelite takes photos, do you need my Computer's adress?
Tech: no need, we can send it to the blaster-cam's screen
Jokemaster: that's intresting
Tech: Is that it?
*jokemaster exits science department, collecting his comlink and computer on the way*
Jokemaster *through comlink*: OK, I'm done here

Zofire puts her armor on before she exits the Sable Dove and says to Katarn07, "See you at the NRI headquarter."
Zofire then heads to Roizon that is next to her ship. "How are you Roizon?" she asks.
Roizon responds, "Great as usual Miss Fett. Have you come here to pick up your ship?"
"Yes I have." responds Zofire.
Zofire then hands Roizon her ticket. Roizon then inserts the ticket into a slop that is located in his forearm.
Roizon then says, "700 credits Miss Fett."
Zofire hands 700 credits to Roizon.
Roizon then replies, "It has been a pleasure looking after your ship Miss Fett. Come back soon."
Zofire boards her Slave 2 and turns on the engines. She then contacts Katarn07, "Ok, all set. Lead the way."
With that said, the two ships leave Zotron's hanger. The two ships head towards NRI headquarters.
02-08-2003, 09:32 PM
Katarn07 left the Sable Dove shortly after setting it down gently in a docking bay. He went inside the NRI HQ to meet up with Jokemaster and Zofire when he ran into Jan Ors, "Oh, hey there Gunny. Here is R9, clean as new. Tell your friend it was a pleasure to do buisness with R9. Quite a fiesty little thing when seperated from his master."
"Yeah, they sure do have a strong bond, don't thay? Well, I will be sure to tell Zo for you." Katarn07 turns to R9, "You look refreshed R9. How was your oil bath?"
The droid beeped and Katarn07 found Zofire coming from another docking bay, "Hey there. R9 is cleaned. Jan says it was a pleasure. We should find Jokemaster and get on with this..."
They go off to find Jokemaster.
02-08-2003, 09:33 PM
*a rodian pushes past him twoard the Intelligence section of NRI carrying a parcel, Jokemaster recognizes him as one of Teraytiro's saboteurs*
*the rodian quickens his pace*
"STOP" *to a passsing security officer* "stop that man"
*Jokemaster and the security officer pursue the rodian, until finally the rodian shoots 3 times, one bolt narrowly missing jokemaster but hitting the officer in the arm*
*continues pursuing rodian, one blaster bolt finally hitting him in the shoulder, finally Jokemaster raises his blaster with his other arm shooting 5 bolts, 3 of them hitting the rodian in the back*
*to passerby while applying bacta to his wound*"call security, have them check out the parcel."
02-08-2003, 09:42 PM
Zofire sees the place filled with officers. "What happen here?" Zofire says in confusion.
02-08-2003, 09:44 PM
Katarn07 hears blaster fire and screaming so he quickens his pace with the Force. Zofire is unable to keep up. He arrives to the scene, yellow lightsaber ablaze, "Jokemaster, you alright?!"
He leans over the Rodian, "He's not dead... yet."
Jan Ors arrives with two NRI security guards. She points to the Rodian, "Take him to the detention center for interrigation! If he survives."
She and Katarn07 see to Jokemaster's wound while waiting for Zofire.
02-08-2003, 09:45 PM
Jokemaster: yeah, didn't hit me anywhere important
*security opens parcel to find a remote bomb in it*
Security Gaurd: Great, now they're trying to bomb intelligence. Run an ID check on this guy"
02-08-2003, 09:50 PM
Zofire arrives at the scene and recognizes the Rodian that is on the floor. It was the same Rodian that shot all of those civilians on Ziltenia. The same Rodian that attacked her friend.
Zofire's face expression changed from confusion to angry. She pulls out her modified and aims it at the Rodian's head.
02-08-2003, 09:55 PM
Katarn07's eyes widened, "Zo, no!!!"
He dove out and pushed the girl over. The armor busted his jaw as he collided with her. He felt a tooth or two fall out of his mouth as well. He was on top of the girl and frantically disarming her, "Jan, help me out here. Get this guy out of here! Now!"
The guards complied and Jan started taking out all visible weapons Zofire carried. Katarn07 could see the hate in her eyes when she snarled at him for stopping her. He stared at he blankly as whispered, "I'm sorry."
02-08-2003, 09:59 PM
"I HAD THAT SCUM RIGHT WHERE I WANTED HIM!!!!" Zofire's face changes from hatred to sadness. Tears then start to roll down Zofire's face. She then mumble, "I had him....I had him....I'm sorry."
02-08-2003, 10:12 PM
Jokemaster: Don't worry, he's gonna get whats coming at him. But right now we need him alive. An officer was killed and he was carrying a bomb to the intelligence section. There's something in there that Teraytiro doesn't want us to see, and the best way to find out is to interrogate that bastard
02-08-2003, 10:14 PM
Katarn07 takes the girl and helps her up to her feet. She is wobbly as she cries. Katarn07 takes her in his arms and looks to Jan, "Interrogate the Rodian. Find out all you can. I'll calm her down..."
R9 whistles mournfully as Katarn07 leads her away, "Jokemaster. This mission is getting pushed back it looks like. We'll stay the night and if she's not better by tomorrow, looks like we'll do this on our own."
Katarn07 leads Zofire and R9 to their room, "Take off your armor; stay awhile. Stay here. I'll be back in the morning for you. R9, keep her here please."
He leaves and requests security posted outside her door.
02-08-2003, 10:20 PM
Zofire, sobbing, takes off her armor and lays down for the night.
R9 whistles mournfully as he shes Zofire laying down.
"Goodnight R9." Zofire says softly to R9 and then she pats him no the head.
02-08-2003, 10:43 PM
*checks computer files while eating pizza*
"Let's see here. Network/Files/Crime/Teraytiro"
*finally finds something good*
"Gunny, I know what they were trying to blow up. We have info on the location of Teraytiro's base and the complete profile on this guy. "
02-08-2003, 10:55 PM
"Hmmm. Get a map of the base and Club Bantha Oasis. You and Zo will be posing as gamblers there tomorrow. In the mean time, I'll try to contact a sabacc dealer. He's the brother of a friend of mine. He may help us out..."
Katarn07 gets on another PC and contacts Wra'fo's brother.
02-08-2003, 11:01 PM
*hacks into Club Bantha Oasis and gets the building blue prints*
"I got the club blueprints, and satelite photos. I also have satelite photos of the base"
02-08-2003, 11:31 PM
"Good work. Study them and then get some shut eye." Katarn07 says, "I'll check with Zo's guards and see how she's doing then I'll retire myself. See you tomorrow."
02-09-2003, 08:13 AM
Jokemaster: See ya.
*jokemaster compares the blueprints of the club with the actual satelite photos, noticing a new opening, and some things added*
Jokemaster: That's strange...
*checks the satelite photos of the base, one from one month ago and a current one, noticing that some things have also been added.*
Jokemaster:You guys have both been very busy
*calls the Tech and Sciences department
Jokemaster: This is Ryan, have you guys gotten the photos for what was supposed to happen tonight
Tech: Yes sir.
Jokemaster: Can you transmit them?
Tech: On my way sir
Jokemaster: an call me Jack, It's not like I work here anymore
Tech: OK Jack
*The Tech transmits the satelite photographs*
Jokemaster: he never arrived. It wasn't tonight that ******* gave us bad information.
*goes over to the Science and Tech department to find out what those changes are*
02-09-2003, 10:24 AM
Katarn07 had just reached his quarters which was across the hall from Zofire's when Jan Ors ran into him. She furrowed her brow, "You haven't gotten the jaw looked at yet? You'd better do that. I thinks its broken."
"I know its is. I also lost three teeth, but I've..."
"Had worse, I know you have Gunny. You can't use the fact your arm was torn off in an explosion to evade medical treatment. Besides, if you do go there, you can talk to Kyle."
Katarn07 puts his key card to his room back in his pocket, "Alright. I haven't seen him for months. Thanks alot Jan."
He leaves and goes up to the medical bay. A blue medical droid greets him, "Greetings Katarn07. Looks as if you have gotten yourself into a fight. Let me get some bacta and then I can take a look at your mouth." The droid walks away and returns, "Looks as if you have lost some teeth. I can fix that right up while your here. Take a seat."
The droid took no more than an hour to fix up Katarn07's mouth. He stood up, "Thanks alot, 2-1B. Do you know where I can find Kyle Katarn?"
"Katarn asked not to be disturbed by anyone; except for Jan Ors."
Katarn07 looks blankly to the door to the rest of the patients, "Yeah. OK, well thanks alot."
Katarn07 leaves and goes to his quarters and lays in bed. He can not fall asleep.
02-09-2003, 12:58 PM
Tech: Well, the new openings could be anything, in short: we don't know anything. Can't help you Jack.
Jokemaster: ok. Wait, the satelite photos where are they stored?
Tech: The intelligence department, why?
Jokemaster: and if the Intelligence department was destroyed what would happen
Tech: We'd take the pictures again.
*Jokemaster calls Katartn07*
Jokemaster: Gunny, I know why that rodian wanted to blow up the Intelligence department
02-09-2003, 05:15 PM
"Alright, I'll wake Zo up and head down."
Katarn07 leaves and tells the guards, "Wake her up and tell her to meet me and Jokemaster."
The guard nods and does so as Katarn07 leaves.
"What do got, Jokemaster?"
02-09-2003, 05:34 PM
"The satelite photos. This picture was taken about a month ago" *shows him picture with no opening* "and this was taken today" *shows picture with an opening big enough for 3 ships to fly through with manuvering space*" The tech guy said that if the NRI ever loses satelite data, the pictures are retaken. If the rodian had destroyed the data, they would have retaken this without anyone being the wiser about the change."
02-09-2003, 05:55 PM
"Hmmm. It appears gambling without a permit is not the only illegal activity going on down there. Today, you and Zo will chack it out. R9 and I will fly cover along side with Jan. After you get the info you need as to what they are doing, you'll escape to her ship and Jan and I will fly cover. The New Republic can take their armed forces in there then; no more need for us in the NRI or you and Zo for that matter."
02-09-2003, 07:31 PM
The guard wakes Zofire up and says, "Excuse Miss Fett, I'm sorry to wake you up. Something has come up and Gunny wants you to meet him and Jokemaster on the hanger."
Zofire replies, "Oh ok."
She then yawns and puts on her armor.
"Come on R9."
R9 whistles and follows Zofire out of the room. She then meets up Katarn07 and Jokemaster on the hanger.
"So what is the news?" Zofire says to both Katarn07 and Jokemaster.
02-09-2003, 07:44 PM
*explains to Zofire the same way he explained to Katarn*
Jokemaster: the second thing is that they're in a straight line from each other, which probably means Teraytiro's picking something up. I think it has something to do with the owners of the club. I'm going to try to find out more about them
02-09-2003, 07:46 PM
Katarn07 looks to Zofire as she listens, and then to Jan Ors, who just entered, "I heard the news. We need more help on this than just you two. We must move out within the hour; the Rodian's failure has spread to Teraytiro by now. Oh, and Wra'fo has arrived, Gunny."
"Drunk? Give him money for a ride home..."
"No, he has contacted his brother and he has managed to secure your friends on the VIP list. They will have unlimited access to Bantha Oasis; plus 1000 free sabacc chips."
Katarn07's jaw drops, "Jeez. The one time in two years Wra'fo is sober, he does a favor for two complete strangers..."
"Wra'fo will fly with me. He has knowledge of the bases layout. I am a great pilot, you know that, so I want you to take the Sabel Dove, I'll take the Savrip Striker..."
"I made some modifications on your YT-1800. It flies half as decent as the Ravens Claw, but it's unmarked and won't be traced back to the NRI."
"Alright." Katarn07 looks to Zofire, "Get all that? If you want Teraytiro, you're going to have to look around the entire base. I advise you split up and keep in contact with eachother and Jan and I via comlink. Once you find whatever Teraytiro is doing, take the pictures and I'll get them to the NRI. Jan will pick you two up and get you here as well. We should move out now, I suppose. Like Jan pointed out, Teraytiro is expecting the NRI soon, so it'd be better if you two went in undercover."
02-09-2003, 07:58 PM
"Ok, I'll take off my armor..and search the district."Zofire says to everyone.
02-09-2003, 07:59 PM
*a Communications person arrives with a message*
Comm officer: We have intercepted a message coming to and from Teraytiro's base. What we have unscrambled so far is this:
Voice from Bantha Oasis: Packet is ready
Voice from Teraytiro's base: As is the money
Voice from Bantha Oasis: You were supp *static*
Comm officer: here we haven't unscrambled
Voice from Teraytiro's base: Meet you in club tomorrow, after the Boss does some gambling.
Jokemaster: that settles it, tomorrow we need to do some heavy gambling.
02-09-2003, 08:08 PM
"We still need some dirt on them now. Wra'fo is sober. Send him up in my... What'd you name the Celphi Jan?"
"Right, have him take the Savrip Striker over the club and base. His brother can get some more info to us. I'll contact him again. Where is Wra'fo anyhow?"
"He is in the med bay, visiting Kyle."
"That droid wouldn't let me see him..."
"Oh, sorry about that. Here is a pass, go see him."
Katarn07 looks to Jokemaster, "Alright. Get what you can. I will talk to Kyle and Wra'fo. Then I'll contact Wra'fo's brother on this mess. He may be able to deal you a few winning hands. It'll attract Teraytiro to play against you. He may give some clues to his plan. How does that sound?"
Katarn07 leaves and heads to the medbay.
02-09-2003, 08:13 PM
"I'm gonna find out more about the owners of that club, something tells me they're not angels"
02-09-2003, 08:23 PM
"I'll see what I can do..I'll let you know by commlink. Should I head to the club now?" Zofire asks.
02-09-2003, 08:27 PM
Katarn07 returns shortly after with Wra'fo, "It appears Kyle's been transferred. No. You guys should go when Teraytiro is there. You can try to get any info outta him. Wra'fo's brother will let you guys win big credits. Teraytiro can't help but come and try his luck against you two..."
02-09-2003, 08:27 PM
"No, too suspicious. I want to seem like a rich prick with a lot of money to through around and any of us being there twice would be suspicious"
02-09-2003, 08:38 PM
Zofire replies, "Ok, we will head over there tomorrow. Let me do something first."
Zofire then head to the detention center and sees the Rodian sitting on a chair. Zofire looks at the alien through mean eyes.
"Huta Isa Yurka Frita?" the Rodian then laughs.
(TRANSLATION: How is your friend?)
She then opens the forcefield, quickly takes out her blaster and shoots the Rodian's knees.
"Let me see you run now scum." She then shoot the Rodian's right shoulder.
Zofire then closes the forcefield and heads to the hanger.
02-09-2003, 08:50 PM
Katarn07 is on his way to Kyle's new location when a Rodian is rushed by in a bed. The medics are screaming into a coming to 2-1B, "Code blue! Code blue!"
Katarn07 ses it with horror, "Zo..."
He turns around and runs to the detention center. It is empty, and he finds two blaster marks in the Rodian's cell. "Zo alright."
He gets out his comlink and sets it on a frequency only Jan can hear, "Hey, Joke's busy getting dirt on Teraytiro. Zo has atatcked the Rodian prisoner; I think he may finally have died. He's on his way to the ER. Help me find Zo."
"We're are shutting hangar doors her ship is in. We are having a security detail search her quarters. I know how you feel about Zofire, Gunny, but she has got to be taken into the cell block..."
"What?! No, Zo is the one that has been helping us on this! Without her, the NRI may be open to whatever attack Teraytiro may be plotting against us!"
"Calm down! He isn't attacking us. It's for money; you know that."
Katarn07 takes a deep breath, "If I find her before the security guards do, don't expect me to turn her in."
"You are risking your career? I care for you Gunny; you are my closest friend I have here in the NRI. Well, now that Kyle and I got together. I won't tell if you do take her away from here. Friendship is important to you; I know this. I hope you find her before the guards do, Gunny."
"Me too." Katarn07 rushes to her quarters with Force speed, finds she's not there, and then goes to the hangar Slave 2 is in. He sees her and shouts, "Zo! Come on, we've gotta get outta here. You're in big trouble..."
02-09-2003, 08:56 PM
Zofire shouts back, "Aboard the ship! I'm heading back to Zotron's Hangar!"
02-09-2003, 09:02 PM
Katarn07 doesn't have time to comply. The security detail arrives, "Zofire Fett, you are under arrest!"
Katarn07 puts his hand up at them, "No she's not."
The head officer furrows his brow, "Wait a sec... No she's not."
"You will go to Mon Mothma and tell her Zofire has fled to Nar Shaddaa."
"Let's go men! Miss Fett has escaped to Nar Shaddaa. Mothma won't be pleased..."
Katarn07 climbs aboard her ship, "You know, that's the first time that trick has worked. Alright, go."
Katarn07 takes out his comlink, "Hey, Wra'fo. Get R9 and my ships over to Zotron's Hangar."
Katarn07 looks up to see the hangar doors beginnig to close, "Zo. Step on it, or else we'll both be up to our necks in Bantha Fodder."
02-09-2003, 09:12 PM
Without reponding back, Zofire zooms the Slave 2 right through the hangar's opening.
On the way to Zotron's Hangar, Zofire says to Katarn07, "...he talked about my friend." Then she remained silent until they reached Zotron's Hangar. The Slave 2 lands gently on the hangar and Zofire opens the ship's ramp. Roizon's head pops next to the ship's ramp to look inside.
"Good evening Roizon." Roizon replies, "Good evening Miss Fett."
Zofire then says, "Gunny this is Roizon, Roizon this is Gunny."
"It is a pleasure to meet you Mr. Gunny." Roizon says.
02-09-2003, 09:19 PM
Katarn07 looks around the place and nods, "Very proftiable buisness it appears."
Katarn07's comling beeps, "Gunny? It's Jan, are you there?"
"Yeah, Jan. I got Zo in time. Is Wra'fo there?"
"No reason. You can get busted for this to, you know..."
"Hey, I've been helping these guys out since I was 18, what makes you think that at the old age of 34 I'm gonna get court martiald?"
Katarn07 laughs, "Guess a demotion. You think they'll go as easy on me?"
"If me and Kyle have a say in it, you'll have no worse ahead of you."
"Thanks alot Jan. See you after this whole mission I guess."
"Yeah. Jan out."
Katarn07 turns to Zofire, "I know you were angry and I don't think you were wrong in your actions. I wouldn't be here if I thought so..."
02-09-2003, 09:26 PM
"Thanks Gunny. We can head to a hotel located here on Zotron's Hanger. I'll pay for your stay. This place has everything, so if you get hungry, you can head to the Food Plaza located on the second floor of this hangar. This place has basically everything."
Roizon responds, "Indeed."
02-09-2003, 09:33 PM
"Oh, please, don't. I'll pay for your stay if anything. Although my paycheck may get cut for doing this... OK, I'll take the offer. I owe you one though. This won't go unforgotten."
Just then, both the Sable Dove and the Savrip Striker land. Wra'fo gets out of the Dove with R9 at his side, "Gunny. Glad I caught you. Jan will get suspicious, so I told her I was going to AJ's in the Sable Dove. She'll know I followed you when she asks AJ for me to return..."
"She can't. You're not in the NRI... yet."
"Soon I will be. This'll look bad on my application you know."
"Yeah it will. Forget it, it's for a good cause."
The three enter the hotel. Wra'fo produces some credits, "Where is the bar. I am getting myself a Rodian Gin..."
"No you're not. Get nothing stronger than a Juri Juice."
"Right." Wra'fo leaves.
"So, let's check in." Katarn07 says to Zofire.
02-10-2003, 09:41 AM
Zofire looks at the screen that shows all available rooms. "We will have rooms adjacent to each other." she says to Katarn07.
"Can we please have rooms 3-01 and 3-02." Zofire says to the Robot on the other side of the counter.
The Robot replies, "Definately, 2000 credits please."
"Here." Zofire hands the credits to the robot. The robot then turns around to pick up the card keys and gives the card keys to Zofire. Zofire then hands Katarn07 a room key. "I'll see you tomorrow Gunny. Come on R9." Zofire then heads to the elevator.
02-10-2003, 04:32 PM
Katarn07 depostits what credits he has for the hangar for his ships, checks on Wra'fo at the bar, and then goes to his room.
02-10-2003, 05:01 PM
As Zofire takes the elevator to the 3rd floor, she commlinks Katarn07 and says, "Gunny,if anything comes up, let me know through commlink. Zofire out."
The elevator stop on the 3rd floor and Zofire walks out with R9. She then goes in front of a door that says Room 3-01. Taking out the card key, Zofire slides the card on the door and opens the door. "Nice toom, isn't it R9?" she asks R9.
R9 beeps and whistles in response.
Zofire then takes of her armor and goes to the bed. "Goodnight R9."
R9 whistles and then Zofire turns off the lights.
02-10-2003, 05:16 PM
Katarn07 enters the room a few minutes after Zofire arrived to hers. He entered and went to the recliner which a small radio was next to on a table top. He switched on some Jizz music and took out his Personal Data Assistant (PDA).
He began reviewing the map of the casino while the song, Drive Me Mad, played on the radio. He got no further in his reading when the song ended and the announcer spoke, "That was Drive Me Mad, by the Modal Nodes. Great group. Figrin Dan and the gang will be visiting here on Coruscant tommorrow for a man by the name of Teraytiro Rodiar..."
Katarn07 turned up the volume and contacted R9, "Hey, record this for Zo."
The announcer went on and on as to how Bantha Oasis was going to hook up with another club called Burgandy Moon, whom Teraytiro was owner of. Katarn07 got all the info. This would help reduce Jokemaster's and Zofire's undercover investigation. It appeares Teraytiro is going to use the gambling profits for himself to fund for whatever smuggling job Teraytiro plans to do.
He took his comlink and radioed Jan, Jokemaster, and Wra'fo with the recorded message and asks them to meet him in the bar, each alone without any NRI agents. He then went to Zofire's room, "R9, wake her up and you two can meet me and Wra'fo, Jan, and Jokemaster in the bar."
02-10-2003, 05:33 PM
R9 beeps and whistles is response to Katarn07. Then after Katarn07 left Zofire's room, R9 approahes Zofire and a little mechanical hand comes out of R9.
R9 shakes Zofire gently.
Zofire wakes up yawning and says, "What is the matter R9?"
Zofire then turns on her commlink and says, "Gunny, come in Gunny."
02-10-2003, 06:02 PM
"Head down to the bar with R9. He has a bit of info in his memory bank you'd might be interested in... I contacted Jokemaster and Jan to get over here, Wra'fo and I are already waiting. So move fast."
02-10-2003, 07:54 PM
*gets message from Mon Mothma about Zofire's actions*
Jokemaster: why am I not suprised
*finds some info on what Teraytiro may be smuggling and just before getting message he sets up a meeting in 2 hours with a conman*
Jokemaster: On my way
*secretly sneaks out into the streets and heads to Gunny's and Zofire's direction*
02-10-2003, 08:54 PM
After Zofire getsthe message from Katarn07, she head down to the bar with R9.
"So what is the news?" Zofire asks to Katarn07 and Wra'fo.
02-10-2003, 09:04 PM
*arrives at bar*
Jokemaster: got anything?
02-10-2003, 09:10 PM
R9 plays back the recording and the 4 sit down in a booth together.
Katarn07 speaks first, "Jan's not coming. She said it could mean more than a demotion if she was caught. So, I will have R9 record this and send it to her. I know this is good, and it will prove useful in the trial the NRI will have for Zo..."
Katarn07 looks around, "So, Jokemaster. You said you were going to dig around for a bit more. Find anything?"
02-10-2003, 09:13 PM
"Yeah, the guys who own the Bantha Oasis seem to be drug makers. Some guy told me the joining deal is just a cover. I got a meeting with him in 2 hours."
02-10-2003, 09:20 PM
"Deathsticks? Some illicit spice? I don't know; drugs are big all over the galaxy, but deathsticks have been for decades now the biggest craze here in the lower levels of Coruscant. Teraytiro could make big if he got at least 10% of Bantha Oasis's profits... And with wealth comes power. He may gain the upper hand in his war with the New Republic. That is almost enough to contact New Republic forces, but all we need is some proof. Now we know what to look for, you two."
Katarn07 leans back, "OK. What kinda guy is this contact? Wra'fo's brother can shed some light on this. Maybe he knows where they store the drugs..."
Katarn07 turns to his Rodian friend, "I dunno, Gunny. I can ask."
Wra'fo leaves. Katarn07 looks to Zofire, "Well, if this goes off correctly, the NRI will be looking at you as a hero, not a criminal. I wish they could see that now."
02-10-2003, 09:20 PM
"Hmm, interesting. So this Teraytiro is hooking up business with another person and is also smuggling." Zofire responds.
02-10-2003, 09:24 PM
"I'm bringing the blaster-cam with me to the meeting so you guys can see it."
*gives Katarn and Zofire the screens*
02-10-2003, 09:27 PM
"Thanks Jokemaster." Zofire says as she grabs the screen. "If you want me to go with you, let me know. I'll wait outside while you have the meeting with this guy."
02-10-2003, 09:31 PM
"Don't get to close, Zo. Be careful you two. I'm gonna try to see if Wra'fo can get the info from his brother."
Katarn07 leaves to his room where Wra'fo is on the computer with a glass of Corellian Ale in his hand. Katarn07 snatches it away, "Hey, come on Wra'fo. Booze won't make your pain and failure go away!"
The Rodian recoils, then slumps in the chair, "Yeah, I know... I got my brother online. He is getting me the address to the data bank of Bantha Oasis. They'll have detailed interiors and the drug loaction. Your friends can snoop around there between gambling."
"Right, I'll tell them."
Katarn07 returns to the bar and tells the news and shows the map he has on his PDA, "This'll help your mission. Teraytiro will be onto you two after awhile, so we need all the inside info we can get..."
02-10-2003, 09:40 PM
"R9, scan the map and give me new info on Teraytiro." Zofire says to R9. R9 scans the map that Katarn07 has. Then a slot opens from R9 and a datapad comes out.
Zofire grabs the datapad, "Thanks R9."
Zofire then takes off her armor. "They will get very suspicous if I go over there with this on."
"I'll inform you of the situation Gunny on commlink." She tells Gunny.
"We should head over there by taxi." Zofire tells Jokemaster.
02-10-2003, 09:46 PM
"You'd better wait on going there. The VIP Wra'fo's brother got you 2 pass wil grant you more access and it is dated for tomorrow."
Katarn07 looks around the bar and sees a group of Rodians walk in, with a single Weequay and Trandoshan with them.
Katarn sat down and blocked Zofire from their site, "Don't look. Looks like Teraytiro's goons have arrived. They must have IDed the Savrip Striker when we were fighting those Z-95s earlier. Looks like Guro's brother is with them with a trandoshan friend. Not sure who it is... Stay cool. They'll leave soon."
02-10-2003, 09:57 PM
"Hmm, Good thing I took off this armor." she whispers to Katarn07.
The Trandoshan motions to the outside and two female Twi'lek bounty hunters steps in the bar. They stop next to the entrance and look around. The Trandoshan say to his group,"Do you see that Mandalorian anywhere?"
02-10-2003, 10:07 PM
"Sithspit," Katarn07 whispers. He looks up to Wra'fo who is just enters the bar. He sees Katarn07 and the group, and through the use of eye signals, he understands what he must do. He walks up to the bartender, "Yeah, yeah. I've been on her trail for a day now. I know she was in here, but she left. Any idea where she would have gone?"
The bartender furrows his brow. Wra'fo slips the guy a 100 credits, "Any idea at all?"
"Yeah. She was going to leave her ship here to throw you off. She went to a place far below, in the underlevels."
"Thanks." Wra'fo leaves and draws the group out.
Katarn07 nods to the bartender, "Thanks alot man. Zo, we gotta get outta here. The NRI is the safest place to go. But you'll have to stay in a cell for the mission. Do you know of anywhere you can go? I'll take Slave II to NRI HQ first, and then we along with Jokemaster and Wra'fo can hide for a bit longer until the mission's start."
02-10-2003, 10:17 PM
Zofire look at the entrance, "I don't want to spend the night in a cell. I'll probably go to one of my fellow bounty hunters. Her name is Kostar Moonknight. Her place isn't that far from here. I'll take a taxi over there."
02-11-2003, 03:27 AM
Dante, a human dressed in lose, dark clothing, walks by the group.
"I couldn't help but overhear part of your conversation. I'd watch where you go outside, those guys arn't alone...and they arn't just looking for you...but something. We'll run into eachother later, I can promise you that."
Dante continues walking and dissappears into the back of the bar.
02-11-2003, 08:02 AM
"I'm gonna try to convince Mothma to let you go, it all depends on that rodian's survival"
02-11-2003, 12:50 PM
Zofire remains silent for a second and asks both Katarn07 and Jokemaster, "You think that person is telling us the truth?"
Zofire then starts to look around to see if she can spot Dante again.
She then says to Jokemaster, "I don't know if Mon Mothma is going to let me go. But you can still try and see if she does let me go."
02-11-2003, 04:00 PM
"Mon Mothma will not be convinced until you get the evidence of the drugs from your investigation. Seh suspended Kyle Katarn several times for his ruthless runs and guns way of dealing with his assignments, and he's the best guy the NRI's got!"
Katarn07 looks to the back of the bar to spot Dante. He doesn't see him, "And that guy didn't help us out much either. Now that Goru's brother is involved, I am as deep in this mess as you are... And I wonder what that something is. Jokemaster will meet his contact soon, so Zofire and I better get outta here. Your friend's help could be useful, but they'd search her joint for you. I think our best choice is to fly around. I'll drop Slave II of at the NRI HQ, you and take Sable Dove and then Wra'fo and I'll take Savrip Strike. Your friend can meet us at the Batha Oasis. She can help us out there."
02-11-2003, 04:34 PM
"Ok." Zofire replies. "I'll contact Kostar Moonknight as soon as we are in the air. Then we will come up with a plan when we meet up with her."
02-11-2003, 04:39 PM
Katarn07, Zofire, R9, and Jokemaster leave. Wra'fo meets up with them, "I thought I'd never shake those goons. Hurry up your plan."
Katarn07 explains their plan, "Sounds a bit weak. I'll take Slave II back, Gunny. You 4 get airborne. Those bounty hunters will be back soon."
Wra'fo takes Slave II back to NRI HQ to hide it.
Katarn07 climbs aboard the Savrip Striker with K\Jokemaster. R9 and Zofire are left with the Sable Dove.
02-11-2003, 05:15 PM
Zofire and R9 aboard the Sable Dove and contacts Kostar Moonknight, "Hey Kostar, how are you?"
Kostar replies, "Good and you?"
"Not so good, I'm in a predicament with the NRI and also Terayitiro gang."
Zofire continues, "I'll tell you everything when I see you. I'm going to pick you up. I'll contact you when I'm near you."
"Ok" Kostar says. "See you later. Bye."
Zofire heads to Kostar's place and contacts her. Kostar then comes out and boards the Sable Dove.
"Where is your ship Zofire?" Kostar asks.
"It is at the NRI headquarters." Zofire says.
Zofire then tells Kostar the whole story on Teraytiro.
"We gotta find out what exactly is happening over at Batha Oasis. Most likely, nothing good. Jokemaster, a fellow companion, is going to meet up with someone that will give him inside info on Teraytiro."
Zofire then contacts Jokemaster and Katarn07, "I have Kostar with me. Tell me the situation over there."
02-11-2003, 05:49 PM
"I've just dropped Jokemaster off. Wra'fo has contacted me. He has managed to get your ship back without being caught. It will be impounded, but will be safe from Teraytiro, and they can't track you. I'm on my way to pick up Teraytiro. Meet me at these coordinates."
Katarn07 sends an encrypted code to Sable Dove with the info of their meeting spot. "Bring your friend Kostar with you. She might have of great use in the operation. She may know the rivaling hunters of this planet... And know what else Goru's brother was looking."
02-11-2003, 06:27 PM
Katarn07 notices a transmission coming through...
"Sincere apologies for my quick exit at the bar, had some "business" to take care of. I wish to meet with you soon. I'll contact you later for the location, but for now, keep this encrypted code safe."
An encrypted code is sent in the transmission.
02-11-2003, 07:09 PM
*arrives at alleyway where meeting is*
Contact: You're early
Jokemaster: Would you rather i be late?
Contact: no, when you can get me out?
Jokemaster: as soon as you can give me the info
Contact: The Bantha Oasis is just a cover for a drug making operation.
Jokemaster: we know that. We need some info on the supposed new drug
Contact: It's supposed to do something with mind control. Blocks off memories for temporary amnesia.
Jokemaster: why would that make money?
Contact: Why should it?
Jokemaster: I thought Teraytiro was only intrested in money
Contact: He wants power now. When he heard about the drug he went
* a shot rings out, passing between the two and burning a hole on the near by wall*
Jokemaster: oh crap. *pulls contact with him while running and taking out comlink* GUNNY, WE NEED A PICKUP
*a shot barely misses them from behind*
02-11-2003, 07:27 PM
Katarn07 was no further in reading the message from the mysterious man at the bar when he got Jokemaster's message.
"On my way. Zofire, stay on course. I may be a little late..."
Katarn07 takes the Savrip Strike to Jokemaster's dropzone area. Katarn07 turns to Wra'fo, "Man the turret. Jokemaster is under attack. We need that contact alive. Open fire on my mark..."
Wra'fo complies as Katarn07 scans the area with his monitors and his honed sense of site through the Force. he spots Jokemaster running through one of the streets ans sees a small group after him and his contact. They are Rodian; Teraytiros goons to silence the contact.
"Alright, Wra'fo. Now!"
Wra'fo squeezes the trigger to the quad gun and watches the group split up and take cover.
"Jokemaster, keep going. I am going to hover over your position."
Katarn07 takes the Savrip Strike down, only a few yards over the ground. "Lowering the loading ramp now..."
The ramp lowers. Katarn07 tilts his ship so that the ramp touches the ground allowing Jokemaster and his contact to run up easily. "Hurry up!"
02-11-2003, 07:31 PM
*pushes the contact onto the ramp, turns around fires a few shots at the rodians and scrables up the ramp*
02-11-2003, 09:59 PM
"He's in!" Wra'fo shouts.
Katarn07 pulls out as the Rodian mob reassembles below and aims their fire on his ship.
"Buckle up..." Katarn07 cuts through traffic lanes and up to the upper levels of the planet to escape.
Katarn07 contacts Zofire, "Check this out. Make anything of it?"
He sends her the transmission Dante had sent him.
02-11-2003, 10:04 PM
Jokemaster: Teraytiro's making a power play
02-12-2003, 11:07 AM
Zofire recieves the transmission from Katarn07. Zofire contacts Katarn07 on commlink and says, "Hmm. Interesting. I'll check out the encrypted code. If I can not figure it out, I'll let me ask Kostar if she seen a code like this."
Kostar then says, "I have seen these two Twi'lek before. I had a few conflicts with them from my previous missions. They were probably hired by Teraytiro to make sure we don't follow him. I'm not sure why Goru's brother was looking for though. As for this encrypted code, I can not get through it. Zofire is trying to crack the code. We'll let you know when something comes up."
As soon as Kostar finished talking to Katarn07 and the others, the Savrip Strike picks up a small ship tailing them. Soon after, the ship rocks from blasts that were nearly missed upon hitting the ship.
02-12-2003, 03:52 PM
"Spast! Jan just put this thing back together and already Teraytiro's men are taking it apart! That contact of Jokemaster's must be hotter than we thought..."
Katarn07 opens a safe transmission to his other ship Zofire, R9, and Kostar are in, "Goru's brother is after me, no doubt. News of his death must have spread... Hey you two, I'm gonna be late again. Some goon is chasing me. I'd best settle this fast before New Republic forces spot me and arrest me for assisting you..."
Wra'fo mans the turret again and aims the quad cannon at the pursuing force. He lets out several vollies, hitting the ship in several, non-vital areas leaving black carbon scorings on the sides of it. Wra'fo shkaes his head, "Nope. No good. His evasive tactics are too good."
Katarn07 turns to Jokemaster, "Jokemaster, get what ever else you can outta your contact so we can arrive at the meeting place with some more info..."
Katarn07 pulls up and over the high skyscrapers, leaving all innocents out of his battle. "Son of a Gundark, this guy is really good..."
Wra'fo lets out another series of blasts, this time they scored some of the laser cannons, "He's weaponless! But e'd best take him out before he tells any buddies of our location..."
Katarn07 nods, "Do it."
Wra'fo squeezes the trigger.
02-12-2003, 04:26 PM
The blasts hit the ship and it goes down and crashes in a junkyard.
Soon after Zofire contacts Katarn07. "Gunny, is everything ok? I thought I heard some blasts."
02-12-2003, 04:31 PM
"Umm. No problem. I'll explain when I get to the rendevous. I'm anxious to here what that guy from the bar has to say. Can R9 make anything of it? All my NRI scanners crash everytime they try to make something of it..."
02-12-2003, 04:37 PM
"Sure. No problem." Zofire says to Katarn07.
"R9. Download this encrypted code and see what you can come up with."
R9 beeps and whistles. R9 then hooks up with the ship's computer.
Kostar contacts Katarn07, "Where are we going to meet this guy that was at the bar?"
02-12-2003, 04:43 PM
"I don't know. He said he'd contact me again. We'll meet at the rendevous. After we get there, he will probably get more info. We are going on that assault tomorrow afterall. Hey, do you think that goon tracking me was one of those Twi'leks? Or would that be to reckless and bold of an action for such experienced hunters to even think about attempting?"
02-12-2003, 04:53 PM
Kostar replies, "Most likely it wasn't probably one of those bounty hunters. I bet they came up with the plan to try to eliminate you by sending Teraytiro's forces after you. See what else Jokemaster's contact knows. Contact us if anything comes up."
Zofire says to Kostar, "This code seems harder to crack then I thought. R9 is trying it's best."
02-12-2003, 05:01 PM
"Right. Well, they're taken care of. Jokemaster is doing his best. I'm almost there. How far away are you? I'm no more than 10,000 klics away."
02-12-2003, 05:07 PM
Kostar replies, "We are about 17,000 klics away. We are futher up in the air than you guys."
02-12-2003, 05:09 PM
A transmission comes to Sable Dove from NRI requiring a password to access it. It is encrypted several times and addressed as follows:
Gunny, some info you might be interested in... --- Jan
02-12-2003, 05:22 PM
Zofire, waiting patiently to see if R9 cracks the code, contacts Katarn07, "R9 is still trying to crack this code. Whoever encrypted this code did a really good job."
02-12-2003, 05:24 PM
"Hmmm. That's odd. Are there any new messages for me there? My list of messages on the Sable Dove appears to have more than what you last had. Another message from the guy from the bar maybe?"
02-12-2003, 05:33 PM
Kostar responds, "If you want, I could send you all your messages. I don't want to intrude on your stuff." Kostar laughs and then sends Katarn07 his messages. Maybe this guy knows something about this code."
02-12-2003, 06:04 PM
Katarn07 enters the encryption codes he and Jan used and opens the message.
Mon Mothma has got me working on the assignment now that you are gone. So you know what that means. Yep, I'll be working with you and Zofire. I will come in the Ravens Claw to your location. Which is where? Also, I heard about the use of your first mind trick. Congratulations. Maybe when Kyle gets outta the infirmary, he can teach you a thing or two with the Force. Hope to see you soon.
Katarn07 forwards the unencrypted message to the Sable Dove, "Hey, Zo. Looks like we are gonna get some help on this. Read the message I just sent you."
02-12-2003, 06:07 PM
Jokemaster: You're out now, why did you want to get out?
Contact: I am a messenger for the Bantha Oasis. I got promoted and had to deliver a message to someone. I got curious and read the message, it was directed to Teraytiro and containd information of a new drug. The drug is supposed to have some kind of mind control by creating temporary amnesia. It's been tested on all species except humans. apperently the drug has a weakness. It's supposedly to be countered by either great emotion, even great confusion can work, or by being back where the memories are created. Teraytiro's not working for money anymore. He wants power
*jokemaster repeats this to Katarn*
02-12-2003, 06:15 PM
Katarn07 nods, "Good work."
He sends Zofire a message and explains, "My fears have come true. Teraytiro is out for power; and with the money he has, he can get it and may gain the edge on the NRI's operatives. The New Republic Forces better get here on Coruscant and set up some defensive lines..."
He sends the same thing to Jan along with the rendevous, "Alright. Hey, I've been getting some love letters from a guy in a bar. I'll send them to you. None of us can decode it. I'll have Wra'fo try. Computers are his thing..."
"Alright, Gunny. I'll be there in an hour to meet you. I will try to decode the messages, but I can't promise anything."
02-12-2003, 06:20 PM
Jokemaster: Was anyone following you?
Contact: I've been preparing the betrayal for many months now. Someone must have found something out.
Jokemaster: Don't worry, you're safe now. What else do you know about Teraytiro's
Contact: I've been to his base.
Jokemaster (to katarn) : Gunny, this guy's been to Teraytiro's base
02-12-2003, 06:24 PM
Katarn07 frowns, "Then that ship that attacked us won't be the last. We're in deep Bantha Fodder and there is no easy way out of it. We have to act fast. Once we get to the rendevous, we'll head to the Casino. I'll drop you, Zo, and Kostar off. I'll take your buddy back to NRI HQ. He'll be safer there than in this can... I don't know how much longer we can wait for that guy from the bar to respond..."
02-12-2003, 06:28 PM
Zofire replies to Katarn07, "I am not surprised that Teraytiro is out for more power. Are we sure that he is even on this planet. Most likely he already knows that we are on Coruscant."
02-12-2003, 06:29 PM
Jokemaster: He's still here, it's too big of a chance to pass up. Someone may outbid him
02-12-2003, 06:32 PM
Katarn07 says to Jokemaster and Zofire, "He's still here. With the money made from Bantha Oasis, Teraytiro can start his rise to power. If we don't take him out within the week, we may have another full-blown war on our hands."
02-12-2003, 06:35 PM
Jokemaster: Forget a war, we'll have a dictator
02-12-2003, 06:45 PM
"You forget the Rebellion. They started a full scale civil war against the dictarship rule of the Galactic Empire."
02-12-2003, 06:48 PM
Katarn07 gets an incoming transmission.
"I wish to meet with you, alone. You keep that encrypted code safe. Here is another code I'm sending you. It should be rather easy for you to crack. Come back to the bar and go into the back. You'll see a small, black box. Open it and you'll find a place to put the unencrypted code in. It will unlock a door. Feel around the floor for a handle, and lift up. I'll meet you down there"
02-12-2003, 06:53 PM
Jokemaster: There won't be a rebellion with him controlling the minds of all the galaxy
02-12-2003, 06:57 PM
Katarn07 reads the message from Dante, "Hmmm. Interesting. We're short on time, but this guy seems to know something we don't it may be worth it."
He tells Jokemaster what he plans and then contacts Zofire with the same info, "Hey. Meet Jan at the Rendevous. I won't come. I am meeting that guy from the bar. I'll have a tracker on me that will activate in an hour if I don't come back. Jokemaster and Wra'fo will take the Savrip Striker to you guys and they will continue with the mission."
02-12-2003, 07:03 PM
"Alright. We are heading to the Rendevous." Zofire says to Katarn07.
02-12-2003, 07:16 PM
Katarn07 lands the Savrip Striker down in the designated spot specified by Dante.
"Wra'fo, you fly the ship to Zo and Jan. Good luck."
02-12-2003, 07:43 PM
OOC: Gotta get to college...don't wanna keep ya waiting ;) so... let's fast forward.
Kartarn07 goes into the back and finds the black box. The Box appears to have a white T within a circle on the side. On opening it, he sees the insertation point. Once the code registers, a large *click* is heard. Feeling around the floor, he finds the latch, and opens the false floor.
As he heads down the basement stairs, he sees something unexpected...instead of seeing Dante himself, he sees a holographic image of Dante.
"Katarn07, the encrypted code I gave you serves to purposes. First, it marked your ship and gave it a unique identification. The purpose of this is to make sure that the one given the message is the same one standing here right now...you. The second purpose holds information concerning Teraytiro's intelligence office. There is an "office" that he calls "The Vault". However, it is not at a location. It's a massive collection of transmissions, always coming and going. You can only get into this "network" by hacking into it using a certain coded transmission. The transmission tricks The Vault into thinking it's just more information...which in turn, gives you access. However, there are security checks you must watch out for.
***Gives the key to unlock the encrypted dada***
What kind of information? His plans, building blueprints, passwords, assassination targets...yes...I said assassinations... you name it, The Vault has it.
I can't tell you how or why I know this, but I do wish to join your group in taking him down. I'm not into that force stuff, most of it is just luck in my opinion, but if you are willing to accept me, please leave a location where I can meet you in the computer next to you. I'm currently en route for some "business". I'll... *looks back behind him*** hold on, I think I'm behind followed."
The image suddenly vanishes.
OOC: if you wish to see how the Vault works, you'll have to catch me online with AIM or Yahoo Messenger. Both are RpTheHotrod
02-13-2003, 09:38 AM
Waiting patiently for Katarn07 to contact her, Zofire charges her blaster rifle and disruptor rifle. Kostar charges her blaster rifle aswell.
02-13-2003, 11:09 AM
OOC just fyi, the vault was going to actually be an interactive deal, but I doubt people would take time to use it, so the vault will just be something our characters can get "information" from. Like, "Got into the vault and I found there was some sort of... at...".
So, now we have a source of information.
02-13-2003, 05:32 PM
Katarn07 contacts his party via comlink in a taxi on route to the Savrip Strike, "Sorry for the delay. I got some info that may bust this case open within days. We'll visit the casino in an hour. Our new plan.
"I will find this character that gave me info on something called the Vault. I'll explain later. Wra'fo will come with me as he hacks this network of Teraytiros... You, Jokemaster, and Kostar will go into the casinos and gamble. Meet up with the sabacc dealer at booth # 24. That is Wra'fo's brother. He has the game rigged so you can win constantly. That'll get Teraytiro's attention. Talk to him; see the Modal Nodes... I don't know. Do what you gotta do. Jan will fly cover in the Ravens Claw. You will have the Sable Dove yet. I'm picking up this guy from the bar now. I think he can be trusted. Once you get all the info you can, get outa there and send the info to Jan. She will get it to the NRI HQ for you. I will do the same with all info I get from the Vault. See you after the mission I guess."
02-13-2003, 06:13 PM
"Katarn07, sorry about dissappearing like that. Someone wanted to "check" my cargo. I'm an infiltrator, a spy, whatever you want to call me. I may not be the best kind of guy people want to hang around with, but I get the job done. If you're interested, come pick me up."
Dante gives Katarn07 a location to meet.
02-13-2003, 06:25 PM
"Ok." Zofire replies. Zofire tells everyone the plan that Katarn07 mentioned earlier.
A few minutes later...
"Lets head to the casino now. We have no time to waste." Zofire says. After saying that, Zofire takes off her armor and puts her hair in two pig tails. "They haven't seen me like this." Zofire says. Zofire continues to speak, "R9, you stay with the Sable Dove at the casino's hanger."
"That is good. They don't know how I look, so I'm safe as well." Kostar says to Zofire.
After all that is said, the Sable Dove heads towards the casino. Upon arriving there, the outside of the casino is crowding with humans and aliens of all species. Seing that there is still room on the hanger to land, Zofire quickly lands. When the ship touched the crowd, Zofire opened the ship's ramp and the three head towardsthe exit. "R9, take care of the ship. Close the ramp after we leave.See you later R9."
R9 beeps and whistles as the three exit. As soon as they exit the ship, they are greeted by one of the casino's robots.
"Welcome to Grand Casino. 10,000 credits for ships to park please." The robot says extending his right hand out.
Zofire gives the robot 10,000 credits.
The robot responds to Zofire as she hands the credits, "Thank you and enjoy your stay at the Grand Casino."
After that said, the three head to the casino entrance. Zofire quickly contacts Katarn07, "We are at the casino's entrance, where are you at Gunny?"
02-13-2003, 08:13 PM
*goes straight to sabacc table, winning most of the games and betting big. Ends up invited to the High Rollers table by a Bantha Oasis employee. Goes get Zofire.*
Jokemaster: C'mon we've been invited to the high rollers table
02-13-2003, 08:30 PM
Zofire and Kostar follows Jokemaster to the table. The casino seems even more crowded than outside. It is fulled with some common people, but majority is fulled with people who are wealthy.
After playing a few games, Zofire wins a few games herself and so does Kostar. Zofire smiles as she wins.
02-13-2003, 09:34 PM
The Savrip Strike is enroute to the position Dante had sent Katarn07 and Wra'fo.
Katarn07 wakes up from his nap as he leans forward in his chair to Wra'fo, "What?"
"I got in. I'm in the Vault. At first, they kept rejecting my intricate hacking codes, but once I put in the main protocols of their computer system, in bianary code, of course, I was able to...."
"In Basic Wra'fo. I know nothing about computers."
"I took a sample of their computer's system code, entered it in my message header and was able to send it into the vault. This place is loaded with info. Your ship has plenty of free space in its memory, I hope you don't mind me downloading the whole bunch..."
"Not at all. Can you get in at any time?"
"Well, no. The trick works once I presume. The security on this place is tight, They must use a varitey of access codes, as well as filters to keep out fony messages."
"Could you get in another way? Jan needs to have a look at this."
"Yeah. You can trick the filter easily, but coming up with a prper header for the message to send would take an hour or so."
"Send these messages all to Ravens Claw and Sable Dove. We can have R9 sort them out and bring up any vital info about this drug deal."
Wra'fo nods. A message attracts his attention as he scrolls through the never ending list, "Uhh, Gunny?"
Wra'fo points to the monitor to a message. Assassination: Katarn07.
There are more names below that. Jack Ryan, Zofire Fett, Mon Mothma, Kyle Katarn, Jan Ors. The list contained NRI operatives and Zofire and Jokemaster.
Katarn07 picks up his comlink, "Zo. Jokemaster and you'd better get outta there. Now!"
02-13-2003, 09:47 PM
Zofire ,surprised by the sudden contact from Katarn07, takes out her comlink and whispers to Katarn07, "What happen Gunny?"
02-13-2003, 09:52 PM
"Get out of their. To much to explain. Let Kostar stay. Take R9 and Jokemaster to NRI HQ in an air taxi. You'll be thrown in jail, but R9 has enough info in his databank to get you out right away. Hurry up; if you are caught, you're charred Nerf."
In the Casino, Jokemaster and Kostar are at the High Rollers' table with Zofire on the comlink. Katarn07 is done with his message to Zofire and before they can comply to his warning, a Weequay walks up and looks the three over, "You three the lucky winners? I have been winning every hand in sabacc I have gotten today. I can use a break and push my luck against yours. What you say?"
02-13-2003, 10:15 PM
*Jokemaster agrees before Zofire can warn him.*
Jokemaster: OK, what rules?
02-13-2003, 10:39 PM
With the new information obtained from Katarn07, Zofire puts her hand on her blaster rifle underneath the table. She quickly interupts their conversation and replies to the Weequay, "No, it's ok. I think we had enough for today."
Kostar agrees and says, "Oh yes, we had enough. Thanks anyways."
Soon after that response, a group of Rodians, Weequays, and Granthe Weequay says while taking out a gun, "Oh, I insist."
Before the Weequay could fully draw his gun, Zofire fires a shot right in the chest of the Weequay. The group of thugs quickly start firing at Zofire, Jokemaster, and Kostar. As soon as the fires were shot, everyone in the casino start to panic and some duck in their places while others try to flee the casino through other exits besides the main entrance. Zofire quickly pushes the table they were sitting at over to keep some cover from the shots of the thugs. Kostar and Jokemaster do the same thing to two other tables. Each having their own coverage from the blaster shots.
02-13-2003, 11:16 PM
Someone runs up behind jokermaster and says
"Quick, follow me...I know a quick way out of here. Either you take your chance with these thugs, or you come with me."
02-14-2003, 08:36 AM
Jokemaster: Let me think
*looks over table and almost gets his head blown off.*
Jokemaster (to Kostar and Zofire) : Follow him, I 'll cover you
02-14-2003, 08:59 AM
Cautiously following the guy, Zofire and Kostar take shots at the thug. "Come on Jokemaster." says Zofire.
02-14-2003, 09:11 AM
*jokemaster sees a cargo ship being loaded with packets that look like drugs outside*
Jokemaster: Cover me, I'm going for the drugs
*looks over table, fires two shots and keeps running*
02-14-2003, 09:20 AM
Stepping slowly forward, Zofire and Kostar, start shooting the thugs guarding the cargo ship as well as the thugs coming out of the Grand Casino. The thugs guarding the cargo ship gets hit with two or three shots from Zofire and Kostar. Soon after the shots fired by Zofire and Kostar, the thugs take cover inside the Casino.
02-14-2003, 09:38 AM
*goes inside cargo ship and opens one of the parcels, finding the drugs inside, is about to investigate more when he gets a message from his datapad*
Tech: Ryan, we got an update for your blaster, one of the features we didn't tell you about were fingerprint sensors on the blaster. We know who's holding it. We just found out that there's a way to make the blaster only work for you. Put your hand on the screen.
*Jokemaster does so*
Tech: good, your blaster will now shock the holder if it isn't you. You want anything else?
Jokemaster: yeah, let me talk to my contact
* a few seconds later*
Contact: Yeah Ryan?
Jokemaster: how can you destroy the drugs?
Contact: Burning them. anything else?
Jokemaster: Yeah, any way to wear the effects of the drug off?
Contact: Extreme emotions or being reminded a lot. For example, similar circumstances with similar persons can work. Be careful, Teraytiro needs a human to try it on
*tech interupts jokemaster.*
Tech: Ryan. multiple thugs with Teraytiro coming your way.
*Jokemaster peeks out and sees hundreds of thugs protecting teraytiro and a man who seems to be the owner of the Casino*
Jokemaster: oh crap
*Jokemaster hides in a compartment in the ship and sends a message to Zofire via blaster-cam*
Jokemaster: Zofire, keep an eye on the blaster cam. If I'm captured whatever you do, do not trust me, repeat, do not trust me. I may be infecteed with the drug if I'm captured.
*teraytiro with his thugs board the ship and take off, while ryan continues burning the drugs*
02-14-2003, 10:14 AM
As the ship takes off, Teraytiro smells a faint smoke...
In a cold and deep voice, Teraytiro commands his group of thugs, "Go and search where is that smoke coming from. NOW!!!" He then points to about ten thugs, "You all search the upper level." He then points to about ten other thugs, "You all search the lower level." He then points to ten more, "You all search this level."
Teraytiro then says to the group before dispersing, "Who knows when this smell of smoke started. This damn ship is huge. If we don't find this predicament, it is going to spread. AND THEN EVERYTHING IS GOING TO GET RUINED!!!!!! GO AND CHECK!!! IF IT IS SOMEONE, BRING THAT PERSON TO ME!!!"
With that said, the group disperse and go to the different levels. While Jokemaster is burning the drug, he can hear footsteps drawing closer and closer to the room he is located at. The room is filled with crates nearly stacked to the ceiling and three air vents can been seen. One is the far right, another in the far left, and the last one up on the ceiling.
Meanwhile, Zofire and Kostar are still exchanging shots back and forth with the group of thugs in the Grand Casino.
02-14-2003, 10:21 AM
*opens an airvent and hides in a crate*
02-14-2003, 10:36 AM
Jokemaster could hear the door open. Two Rodians and a Gran enter the room. One of the Rodian says "Look. The smoke came from here." He then points to the drugs that are burning. They quickly put out the flames and look around. The Gran then says, "Look! An air vent is open. That person must have left this room through there."
The Gran then contacts Teraytiro, "Sir, the person is in the air vents. He trying to escape." He then ends the transmission. They quickly exit the room.
Teraytiro says to one of the Bounty Hunters, "Check the computer and see where these air vents led. Run me a map."
Back on Coruscant, Zofire and Kostar, kills some of the thugs in Grand Casino. Soon after, they see multiple thugs running up towards some of the ships on the casino's hanger. Each ship take off and follow the cargo ship.
Zofire says to Kostar, "They must be heading someone, including that cargo ship."
Zofire quickly takes out a tracking device and throws it hard at one of the ships. She then takes out four thermal detonators and gives two to Kostar. Zofire then says, "On three. One....two.....THREE!!"
Both of them throw two activated thermal detonators into the casino's entrance and a huge openings is made by the blasts. They can see some of Teraytiro's thugs flying out of the casino.
Kostar quickly says, "Lets throw the other two in the exit from which we came from. On three. One....two....THREE!!" They both tose the other two thermal detonators in the exit. The blast rocks the hanger and they could see the two thugs flying out of the exit. One is Goru's brother. Glass,debris, and bodies are shattered throughout the hanger.
02-14-2003, 11:08 AM
*gets out of crate and continues burning the drugs*
02-14-2003, 12:35 PM
After following Jokemaster for sometime, Karsec walks through the door.
"When I said I knew a quick exit, I meant it." *As a group of Rodians enter the room, Karsec pulls out a pistol and aims it at jokemaster*
"This has gone too far, grab him!"
02-14-2003, 04:04 PM
Jan Ors is analyzing the data as the Ravens Claw is on its way to the Grand Casino. Fire and smoke can be seen, and she knows the infiltration has gone wrong, "Gunny. Hurry up, I can use some help!"
She streaks over to the scene glancing at the monitors inside the Claw, "Hmmm. There is enough evidence to call in New Republic Forces... I hope the NRI gets these soon..."
Meanwhile, Katarn07 and Wra'fo, with Dante in their ship, are on the way to the Grand Casino.
At the scene of the casino, as Zofire and Kostar flee to the Sable Dove, Goru's brother Luka, nearly dead, makes his way from the wreckage of the casino. Two of the three cargo ships are airborne, the first being the one Jokemaster is held in.
Luka crawls over to the last ship where a Rodian helps him up, "Luka, we thought you had been killed. You'd best get to the med bay on this cargo ship. It is leaving soon."
"OK. Thanks. Katarn07 and his friends will pay for this. Send the Z-95's out to destroy those ships."
"Which ones?" The Rodian asks seeing the mass confusion in traffic lanes departing.
Luka points to the Ravens Claw that is coming over the casino, the Savrip Strike which is gunning the wreckage with its lower cannon, and the Sable Dove which is just taking off. "Those!!!"
Katarn07 yells to Wra'fo, "I'm gonna make a pass on one of those cargo ships. It is the largest of the three and contains the most drugs, I'm sure. Take out the cargo holds! I am sure the drugs will be destroyed if you can put enough holes into the side of the ship!"
Wra'fo takes aim over the cargo hold of the second ship (the one neither Jokemaster or Luka is in) and squeezes the trigger.
02-14-2003, 04:06 PM
As Wra'fo squeezes the trigger, he misses for the ship is too far...
Then out of no where, the ship gets shot at and it explodes. Katarn07 and the others could see the Sable Dove in view.
Two Rodians come through the door and disarms Jokemaster. One of the Rodians speak, "Good Job Karsec." They then hit Jokemaster to to knock him out.
Later on, on Coruscant. Zofire notices that the guy they met to the casino is gone. "Where is he?" Zofire asks Kostar. Kostar then replies, "I don't know, I thought he was behind us all the time."
Zofire then contacts Katarn07 on comlink, "Gunny, Come in Gunny. Jokemaster is aboard one of the cargo ships. Along with Teraytiro and a group of his thugs. I'm not sure where they are heading, but I threw a tracking device on one of the ship Teraytiro thug fled in."
02-14-2003, 04:25 PM
"Good. Have R9 send all his memory banks to the NRI. With any luck, we will get the assistance of the New Republic Army. I will take the last ship. You take the other one that Jokemaster is in. We will trail them and take out their weapons and engines with any luck..."
Jan Ors arrives and begins to finish off the already scuttled ship Zofire had taken out, "Sorry I'm late. How can I help?"
Katarn07 tells her what Zofire did. Jan responds, "Alright, I'll follow you Gunny. Sable Dove is more heavily armed than the two of us together and can handle a ship on its own."
02-14-2003, 04:30 PM
"Can I go to NRI headquarters and get my Slave 2?" Zofire asks.
02-14-2003, 04:36 PM
"Yeah. Let me get the Sable Dove then. Drop R9 off for the memory extraction then."
The two ships leave Jan to pursue as they go to NRI HQ. Katarn07 contacts Zofire, "Kostar can fly the Savrip Strike. We'll have 4 ships that way..."
Just as he says this, a squadron of 7 Z-95 Headhunters comes through the skyline and attempts to get in firing range. Katarn07 tells Zofire, "They can't catch us. But once we switch ships, they'll be on us like a Sand Fly is on Sugar..."
02-14-2003, 05:09 PM
"Damn it. Good thing they are out of range." Zofire says to Kostar as she sees the Z-95s. Then she contacts Katarn07 and says, "Those ships are out of range and probably won't go near the NRI Headquarter because they would be gunned down by the turrets. They will be waiting for us. We must think up a plan."
With that said, Zofire ends her transmission.
02-14-2003, 05:24 PM
Katarn07 looks to Wra'fo and Dante, "Hmmm. We can't go around. The cargo ships may have jumped to hyperspace by then. It'd be best if we go through them and take out as many as possible as we pass them. We can catch the cargo ships in orbit then and save Jokemaster and help Jan take out the cargo holds..."
Wra'fo nods, "I can delay their jump to hyperspace. If I can hack into the New Republic security patrol ships, I may direct them to attack the cargo ships. It will hold them up just long enough for us to get there."
Katarn07 lands the Savrip Strike, gets into the Sable Dove and says to Kostar, "I'd appreciate your help. Take my other ship, the Savrip Strike. It will be of some use. I have the turrets programed to fire by themselves."
He turns to Zofire, "Well, Slave II is right out there. We'd best hurry this up."
Wra'fo and Katarn07 take over the Sable Dove, Kostar takes the Savrip Strike, and Zofire takes Slave II.
The Headhunters have rearranged themselves into a better attcking position when the NRI and bounty hunters come near them.
02-14-2003, 05:38 PM
The Z-95s start firing at the ships of Zofire and the others. Zofire quickly heads up and Kostar quickly heads down. "Disperse everyone!" Zofire says to everyone on comlink.
Zofire quickly aims and locks the Slave 2 blaster cannons and takes out one of the Z-95s.
02-14-2003, 05:48 PM
"Wra'fo?" Katarn07 says to the Rodian in his comlink.
The Rodian complies and takes out a ship as the Sable Dove streaks by the Headhunters. The Z-95's are forced to spin around and gives some distance between Teraytiro's forces and the three ships heading out of Coruscan'ts atmosphere.
"Yeah!" The Rodian screams. He positions the turret and fires on another one, forcing it to crash into the side of a skyscraper."
"Hey, Wra'fo. Wait a bit! To many civies!"
The three ships make it out of the atmosphere and reach the cargo ships being attacked by Jan in the Ravens Claw and the security patrol droid starfighters.
"Do your best, now Wra'fo."
Wra'fo fires the cannons, but the Z-95s split up and attack the vulnerable spots of the Savrip Strike, Sable Dove, and Slave II.
02-14-2003, 05:58 PM
Dante says, "I'm familiar with these ship's configurations. When I was with T...eh, I'm going to use an old trick of mine. Each of the Z-95 ships use a single frequency that keeps the ships running. I'm going to use a signal to disrupt that frequency. It may not power them down totally, but it will shut down a few of their systems for about 10 seconds, including weapons systems. You are going to have one shot at this, make it count!"
*Dante sends the frequency disruptor*
02-14-2003, 06:04 PM
The Slave II shields absorbs some of the shots, so does the Savrip Strike, and the Sable Dove. Kostar does some barrel rolls to avoid some of the laser shots. Meanwhile. Zofire goes up and down and side to side to avoid the laser shots.
Some after, Zofire, Katarn07, Kostar, Dante, and Wra'fo see one of the cargo ships go into hyperdrive. The ships chasing them suddenly stops, Dante's theory worked.
02-14-2003, 06:08 PM
She didn't respond. She jumped in pursuit of the first cargo ship. The other one, which Jokemaster was in, was adrift with its engines damaged from the patrol droid fighters.
Katarn07 looks to Dante. "Good work. Wra'fo? Do your work!"
The Rodian begins to fire at one, but a stray blast from the patroling droid starfighters hammers into the Sable Dove. The ship rocks back and forth, blowing the chance for Wra'fo to take a bunch of enemies out.
Kostar and Zofire, however, are in the prone position to take the rest out.
