((i'll presume that we're playing pazaak. hehe, last time i was under the impression that we were playing a game similar to 5-card stud.

come to think of it, lets make this game a mix of the two. each player must place a bet in the pot after each draw from the dealer until they either place a card down from their sidedeck, call their total, or fold. when the betting takes place, the players can either call the current bet or raise. the other standard pazaak rules apply. ))

"I don't see why not. I could definately go for another couple rounds," Ryshana replied to the man. Looking back at the dealer, Ryshana nodded to indicate that she was ready for yet another deal.

As the cards were distributed, Ryshana once again felt for the emotions of the other players as they recieved their cards. As the bets were cast, Ryshana once again raised to get the other players to fold. It was a type of bully tactics, but with her sidedeck, things like that didn't matter too much. After the last set, Ryshana was showing 12, another man was showing 16, and the nobleman across from her was showing 11. however, one man was sitting on 19 after playing the last card in his sidedeck.

as the bets were cast, the man with 16 put in 450. Sensing him, Ryshana could feel his emotions, and she knew he was bluffing. There was no way he could last another round. Sensing this, Ryshana raised the bet to 650. With the man next to her holding at 19, it was now the nobleman's turn to call, raise, or fold. Your call, Beryl, Ryshana thought.

Beryl felt strange, helping the nobleman play Stud Pazzak against Ryshana instead of making a quick exit and heading for the Echo. But as the game progressed, Beryl began to relax a bit, although she wasn’t sure if the calmness she was feeling was coming from within her or being projected to her by Ryshana through her Jedi powers.

It was now Beryl’s nobleman pal’s turn. He nudged her, asking for advice.

Beryl wasn’t sure if Ryshana could read her thoughts, or know what she was planning, but she was hoping that she would let the guy win this time. It would make it easier to take more money from him later if he got a little confidence.

She looked at the cards showing, then thought a moment, then nodded.

“I…raise?” He glanced at Beryl, and she nodded again. “I raise,” he said with more confidence.

The cards were dealt again. The other player with 16 had busted. The one with 19 stood firm. Ryshana was now showing 17, as was Beryl’s ‘friend’. It was a contest between them now.

Beryl had one of her feelings and knew what the next cards would be. She nudged her ‘friend’.

“Raise?” he whispered, and she nodded. The nobleman gave a worried look at the three remaining cards he held in his sidedeck. “I raise,” he said, although not very confidently this time. He threw in an additional 500 credits into the pot.

Beryl looked at Ryshana, and as she did so, she raised her eyebrow ever so slightly, hoping that Ryshana would pick up on what she was thinking.

Ryshana smiled slightly as the cards were dealt and things went her way. Now, it was a 17-17 tie and one guy holding at 19. Not too shabby, Ryshana thought.

Looking over at Beryl, she sensed an odd feeling from her. She wants me to lose this hand, Ryshana thought. Upon a bit of further deducement, Ryshana smiled inwardly. I love how this girl can think sometimes.

After the nobleman raised, Ryshana easily caught the raised eyebrow. "I call," Ryshana stated as she put in a 500 chip into the pot. With all available bets made, the dealer then set dealt what would be the final draw. Ryshana got a 5, which put her at 22. "Busted," Ryshana remarked. The nobleman, however, drew a 3. That gave him a perfect 20.

The nobleman excitedly scooped the chips on the table into his corner, but not before giving Beryl another well-placed but unwelcome ‘pat’. She glared at him, but he was too busy stacking his chips to notice her displeasure.

“Another round?” he suggested. “After all, my good luck charm seems to be working for me!”

Beryl deftly dodged another pat, and gave Ryshana a pleading look.

Take him for everything he’s got, Ryshana, she thought, hoping again that Ryshana would pick up on it.

The hand started as normal, only Beryl was encouraging the nobleman to place higher bets, something that really didn’t need much encouragement as he was on a winning high.

Again, the cards were dealt, and again, it was pretty much down to the two of them. With both Ryshana and the nobleman standing at 18, it looked like the game would go either way. But again, Beryl knew what the cards would be and that her ‘pal’ would lose this hand. His next card was a six, and he only had a negative 2 card left in his side deck. She again raised her brow slightly, hoping that Ryshana would raise the stakes even higher.

"A good luck charm?? Hmm, perhaps you shouldn't take beauty like that for granted," Ryshana jabbed at the nobleman.

"Haha!! You couldn't even dream of it. Besides, you've got beauty of your own. It may be worth its weight in Dragon Pearls, but it doesn't work as well as she does," the nobleman replied with a quick pat to Beryl. "Lets go for another, shall we?"

As the hand was dealt, Ryshana felt Beryl's uneasiness. Beryl was a crafty sort, and Ryshana could sense it. Smiling inwardly, Ryshana was ready to play for everything.

As the hands started, Ryshana decided to switch from her 'bully' style to a passive style and just simply call the bets instead of raising. Whenever they tied at 18, Ryshana knew it was all over. The pot was brimming with chips, and it was Ryshana's turn to set the bar. Catching another eye raise from Beryl, Ryshana knew things were all set for her to win big.

"Lets make this interesting. All in," Ryshana stated as she put every chip she had into the pot. The total: 21,985.

It was the perfect bait, and she knew it. While the other players folded, the nobleman was all too happy. "You're bluffing, I know it. They may not have the spine, but I certainly do. I'll call," he stated defiantly. Ryshana noticed that he didn't bother to check with Beryl this time, and that meant that it was indeed all over.

As the dealer drew the cards, Ryshana got an 8 while the nobleman got the 6. "Ah, well, all that drama for nothing," the nobleman stated reservedly.

"Not so fast," Ryshana stated. "My total is 26, but with the addition of my +/-6 card, that makes a perfect 20."

Pausing for effect, Ryshana smiled and then stated, "I win."

After collecting the chips, Ryshana now stood at about 45,000 credits. Although she would normally call it quits for the time being, she knew she could get some more credits out of this bunch of rich folks. Several members of the table got up to vacate their spots for others that were looking to get in on the action. Curiously, the nobleman Ryshana had just sparred with also got up to leave.

Before the nobleman could try to get Beryl to come with him, Ryshana gave her a quick nod accompanied with a discreet smile as a signal to leave him.

“Oh, look, isn’t that your wife?” Beryl said, quickly pointing towards the entrance. She had no idea what the nobleman’s wife looked like, but fortunately he was panicking too much with the thought of his wife discovering him there with her to care.

As he spluttered his excuse to her to flee the scene, Beryl let out a heaving and grateful sigh. “I need a drink,” she said to herself, and headed for the back bar.

She gingerly sat down (still sore from the deep cat scratches which were even more sore now from all the ‘patting’ she had endured), checked the value of the couple of credit chips she had palmed, and ordered a large Corellian brandy.

Ryshana almost started to giggle to herself at the distraction Beryl had just given the nobleman. Definately creative, Ryshana thought. Hmm, perhaps a bit to quickly for somebody that isn't sensitive to the Force.

Ryshana then stuck around for a couple more hands. These rich men were easy pickings since they were much more willing to throw the chips around than the standard Pazaak players. After a while, her stack of chips had grown to almost 60,000. I think that should be enough to help us out for quite a while, Ryshana thought to herself. After winning the last deal, Ryshana got up and gathered her chips.

After meeting with the Floor Captain, Ryshana quickly exchanged her chips for credits. As the Captain dealt the credits to Ryshana, she quickly felt outwards for Beryl. It didn't take long to find her sitting over at the bar towards the back.

Heading in that direction, Ryshana quietly walked up behind Beryl and then sat down next to her. Before she looked over at Beryl, Ryshana signaled the bartender. "A Cassandran Choholl please," Ryshana stated. "Sorry, we won't even get in another bottle for a couple of weeks. Even then, there's a waiting list," he replied

"The Cassandran Brandy will do just fine."

As the bartender started mixing the drink, Ryshana looked over at Beryl and smiled. "So, I take it that you've had a busy day."

On her fourth drink already, Beryl replied, “You have no idea.” She quickly downed the glass and asked for another, before turning to face Ryshana. She paused, and her brow wrinkled slightly. “I am so glad to see you,” she said, with genuine relief in her voice, as she shifted in her seat to try and get a bit more comfortable. “Were you looking for me, or did Nic send you out for supplies?”

"Actually, we've been looking for you the entire time. After the landing, Nic and I were supposed to get you from the Headhunter. I'm pretty sure he might get on your case for not staying put, but I wouldn't worry too much about it. I'll have your back," Ryshana replied. As the bartender handed over the drink, Ryshana took a quick sip.

"Well, there are a couple parts I'm not entirely understanding. First is how the heck you got to be a girlfriend for some Trooper Sergeant," Ryshana stated with a smile.

Beryl raised her eyebrows in shock, and felt herself begin to flush.

“Erm…girlfriend? I am most certainly not any Stormtrooper’s girlfriend,” she said. “Penni just…helped me out a bit. Gave me a lift into Theed. Treated some of my wounds. And…”

Then she frowned, thinking how ludicrous this all sounded. A Stormtrooper. Helping her. She looked down at her shoes, and she felt herself blush even more. And…buying me shoes. Nice shoes, too…

She shook her head. “He’s obviously insane or … or something,” she said hurriedly. “Either that or he was up to something.” She sighed. “But he knows my name. My first name, anyway. I couldn’t for the life of me remember what name was on that ID Nic gave me. Still can’t,” she added with a shrug.

Ryshana laughed lightly to herself at Beryl's response. "So, he has a name, too. Sounds like he just simply liked you. You can never underestimate the power of male hormones," Ryshana replied while taking another sip from her drink.

Thinking for just a second, Ryshana then stated, "Do you know why he was in that particular area of jungle?"

"He said he was looking for a Jedi," Beryl stated flatly. "Apparently, suspected to be on a cargo ship that had landed in the area." She grinned, and took another drink before continuing. "Have you ever heard of such an outrageous story?" she said sarcastically, just in case anyone was eavesdropping on their conversation.

"I've heard of much taller tales, believe me," Ryshana stated quickly. "Oh, and another thing. Exactly how did things turn out with that 'cat'? With no weapons, I would imagine things got a bit interesting."

Beryl gave Ryshana a deadpan look. "What's interesting is how I can still manage to sit on a chair." With that said, she shifted again, grimacing slightly. "Those mom cats don't mess around. Don't think I'll need stitches, but I really couldn't see how bad the wound was. It's covered with a large piece of plasti-skin at the moment. Still hurts though. Least the superficial stuff is nearly healed," she said, looking down at her bare leg.

"I came to in a cave, and it didn't take me long to realise I was tagged as 'training material' for her brood." Beryl sighed. "Lost my boot and my jacket in the process. I liked that jacket, too," she added. "Tell you what, though, Krayt Dragon hide is the only leather I'm ever going to wear from now on. I'm lucky to have gotten out of there in one piece."

Ryshana raised her eyebrows slightly at the last comment. "Yes, you seem to be very lucky indeed. And on more than one occassion," Ryshana commented. "But, its no matter." Ryshana paused for a moment to take another sip of the Brandy.

"Since we seem to have a bit of time on our hands, I think that I need to ask you something a bit personal, if you don't mind of course."

"But it's no matter," Ryshana said.

Beryl looked at her askance. "I'm lucky at cards, yes. But that's all. Luck isn't the same as skill. Or quick reaction time. Or quick thinking under stress. Or targeting an eyeball without the computer. Those things come with practice."

Beryl cringed slightly as Ryshana said she wanted to ask her a personal question. "Alright. Go ahead. What did you want to know?"

"Well, its just that you've been pretty distant since the whole encounter with Vader. You avoid me, and until about an hour ago when we started up at the Pazaak table, I haven't hardly even gotten so much as a look from you. I haven't done anything wrong, have I?" Ryshana asked a bit nervously.

"No, not really." Beryl bit her lip. "I...I guess I should apologise for acting the way I did," she said humbly. "It's just...." She exhaled, trying to collect her thoughts. "I suppose I was a bit...resentful of you being on board in the first place. Because...well, because of you being... you know," she said, reluctant to say the word 'Jedi' in such a public place. "And, right now, that's not a real good thing to be in this Galaxy." She frowned. "And Cloud doesn't need any help with anything now that he's your...student. So, I suppose I was feeling... I don't know. Useless, I guess. Anyway, I'm sorry. I'm glad you're here now. Really." She shivered. "And please don't mention the 'V' word again. He scares me. A lot."

Ryshana smiled lightly. "I know this isn't exactly a good place to talk about it, but at least things are in the open. Trust me: if you need something, I'm always available. I may be a bit of a special case, but a lot of that is in the past. Things have changed too much for those things to matter as much any more," Ryshana stated as the smile slowly faded.

Taking yet another sip, Ryshana then continued, "Besides, I could use a good friend. Constant meditation makes for a strong connection, but it makes for distant relationships. I'd rather not have things turn out that way."

"Me neither," said Beryl. She grinned at Ryshana. "And I suppose I owe you some thanks for bailing me out of a potentially sticky situation. I was just trying to get enough credits to find a secure com link to contact you guys, not enough to buy my own ship and come find you. And I swear, if that mongrel gave me one more 'pat', I was going to thump him. Hard."

Beryl downed the rest of her drink. "Well, I think I'm sufficiently relaxed now." She frowned slightly. "You said you came here with Nic, didn't you? Where is he?"

"Actually, I'm not to sure. He was looking for Cloud whenever we split. Hmm, I hope everything is alright," Ryshana thought aloud. Thinking for a second, Ryshana knew that Nic had run into what could easily become a bit of trouble. For some reason though, Ryshana had a feeling she wouldn't have to go looking for him.

Nic and Carman were now drinking Kamonian Whiskey, Nic was obviously annoyed with the situation he found himself in and looked out of the window. He got a good view of the plaza outside the palace, Nic hated what he saw, imperials were everywhere.

"So Nic care to tell me why you've come back?" Carman asked relaxing on the sofa. Nic looked around and walked over to her.

"My ship was running low on supplies this was the closest place where we thought the imps wouldn't be."

"Ah yes your ship, the Echo, you and Jana have made quite a name for yourselves."

"Well we do good work."

"Yes, yes, But last i heard the imps put a bounty on it."

"Really, how Much?"

"100,000 credits"

"That all? I thought it would be higher than that... It's kinda insulting."

Carman laughed "You know i can help you i have friends that can change the id codes for you."

"Yes i'm sure you can but it's never that simple with you, What do you want."

"A favour to be called on when i need it."

Two men walked Up behind Ryshana and Beryl, one of the men held a blaster and pointed it at them. "Please come with us ladies."

Beryl glanced down at the blaster, discretely poking out from inside the man’s jacket, then slowly met Ryshana’s eyes. “Unbelievable,” she said to Ryshana with a shake of her head. “And here I was thinking this day couldn’t possibly get any worse.”

As Ryshana remained outwardly calm, Beryl wasn’t overly concerned with the men's sudden arrival. After all, Ryshana was a Jedi. Beryl had no doubt that if Ryshana really wanted to, she could make the thugs just go away with one of those Jedi mind tricks.

“So,” Beryl asked the man with the blaster, “where are we supposed to be going?”

“You’ll find out soon enough,” he answered cryptically. He waved the blaster, and nodded towards the back door. “Now, please, come along with us quietly and you won’t get hurt.”

Beryl snorted. “Oh, that’s original,” she said sarcastically. “What’s next? The old, ‘we just want to talk to you,’ or perhaps, ‘we’re just doing our job,’ or, my favourite, ‘it’s nothing personal, it’s just business.’”

“Please, ma’am,” said the man, with all the warmth of a maintenance droid, “we don’t want to make a scene here.”

“That was my next guess,” Beryl said, giving him a quick but wry grin. “That’s the trouble with you thugs. Never any original thoughts.”

The man gave her a rather urgent nudge in the side with the barrel of the blaster.

“Ow!” Beryl said, frowning with irritation, as her ribs were still slightly tender from her encounter with the Tusk Cat. “Alright, alright! No need to get nasty!”

Ryshana smiled lightly to herself as she crossed her arms across her chest. These two men weren't from the casino's security. That meant that they were working for somebody that could pay off the security so they could not only carry weapons into the casino but also so they could apprehend someone when they were called.

Looking straight into the eyes of one of the thugs, Ryshana then stated, "You want to tell us who your employer is."

The thug quickly replied, "We want to tell you who we're working for. Its a woman named Carmen. Other than that, we haven't been told anything else."

Nodding her head in agreement, Ryshana then stated, "Put up your weapons. We'll come peacefully."

The thugs did as they were told, and they led the pair outside the casino.

Because Beryl had only heard rumours and tales about Jedi mind tricks, she was quite impressed at seeing one in action. She cocked an amused eyebrow as the thugs put their weapons away, but said nothing until they were led outside.

"Neat trick," she said quietly to her Jedi friend. "Scary," she added. "But neat."

Just as they skirted around the edge of the main bazaar, Beryl had to do a double take as she noticed a man standing near a malfunctioning droid, his ruff of familiar blond, spikey hair poking out from behind the droid's chassis. It was Cloud.

"Whoops," she said, feining that she had caught her high heel in some imperfection in the pavement and had to fix her shoe. As she bent down, she palmed a small stone. With a very quick flick of her wrist, she threw it, aiming for the edge of the droid.

Ping!

The stone hit exactly where she had wanted it to. Rising and apologising to her two thug escorts for her clumsiness, Beryl was hoping that Cloud would notice her and Ryshana--not to save them, but just to notice that they were going somewhere with two thugs. Perhaps, she thought, he could tell Nic, when he eventually found him, or failing that, tell whoever had been left on the Echo.

"Do you know how to fix an R5 unit?" asked the cizilian. "I do." said Cloud. "See what you can do with it." responded the cizilian.

When Cloud got near the droid, a stone hit it. Cloud looked around and thought some kids were throwing stones at each other. When he turned toward a wall, he seen a glimpse of Beryl's hair. Atleast, he thought it was Beryl's.

"Is it coincidence that someone has the same hair as Beryl?" thought Cloud. "Yeah, but is it possible?"

Then, Cloud looked at the civilian.

"Sorry sir, but I have another matter to attend to." said Cloud appologeticly. "Go see that mechanic shop over there."

With that said, Cloud ran to the outside of the Bazaar. There were two thugs, a Twi'Lek that looked like Ryshana, and a female Human that hair like Beryl's. Cloud decided to follow them and see if it was Beryl.


Freakin' sweet!

She decided they didn't need to know she'd been attacked by Tusk cats or that Beryl had gone missing.

Jack rushed in Olivers room and searched the thing high and low, tearing apart the draws, every useless thing he chucked on the floor. He searching for about a minute untill he came across an sirgine labed 'antidote'. "hmm, just a guess but I think this could be it". Jack jolted into the infirmary and quickly (but carefully) injected Oliver with the antidote. "I hope that'll do the trick"

Nic Was confused ny this request of a favour, all the years nic had known carman he had never heard her do this sought of thing. She was a money up front kind of person.

"What kind of favour?" Nic asked

"I don't know, you never know when i may need help."

"You know i don't like owing someone."

"Nic You can take my offer and get supplies from me and leave this world soon, or spend days here looking for them, and we both know you wouldn't want that."

Nic had been put into a corner, Carman was correct the less time Nic was on Naboo the better. Nic looked annoyed then held out his hand, Carman responded by standing up and shaking his hand.

"This isn't how we use to close our deals." She said in a sultury voice.

"That was a long time ago."

((occ-this is proberly the time for ry and be to come in.))

Beryl and Ryshana were escorted through the impressive-looking doors of an equally impressive-looking estate house.

Beryl’s heels clacked on the highly polished patterned marble floor, as she took notice of the artwork and expensive furnishings they passed, then looked up at the chandelier hanging from the ceiling in the wide front hall. “All this, and your employer couldn’t afford to hire thugs with brains?” she said, giving a sideways glance to the thug nearest her. As they passed by a painting, she squinted at it. “Oh, well, that explains everything,” she said plaintively, as she noticed a colour in the painting that shouldn’t have been there.

“What explains what?” asked one of the thugs.

“Why Carmen doesn’t pay for higher quality help,” Beryl replied. She gave a quick look at Ryshana, and mouthed, “It’s a fake.”

They were escorted into a cozy but plush sitting room, complete with a fire in the large decorative fireplace, where Nic stood holding hands with a sultry, but elegant looking woman.

Just as Beryl raised an eyebrow in surprise at seeing Nic, the thought suddenly occurred to her that this might not be a house, but a place of… business. She looked down at her dress, then looked at Ryshana, in her tight leather clothes. “Oh, no...,” she uttered softly, thinking that she and Ryshana had been mistakenly brought here as potential bordello ‘recruits.’

Managing a weak smile, she said, “Erm…hi, Nic. We’re not… interrupting anything, are we?”

Nic looked over at his two companions. "no we just finished our buisness." Nic said walking over to Beryl "She's agreed to re-supply the Echo."

"Well, that's good news. Its a rather interesting way to get a favor from somebody. You know, trying to drag us here at blasterpoint and all," Ryshana replied to Nic. "We saw Cloud on our way in. It may be a good idea to pick him up on our way out."

"What do you mean? Do you say, that i drink to much?" Oliver saied, while he began to stand up. A very quickly antidote.

"I can control my drinking - but i could see on my symtoms, that it wasen't from alcohol posion - it was a poision. A poision you normally use, to kill other people". Oliver realisted, what happened and he looked scared on Jake. "Somebody tried to kill me".

Oliver suddenly runned to his computer, and looked at his bottle. "I took the drink from this bottle. "This bottle is from Naboo - maybe i can look up the identification number on the bottle on the PC?"

He began to type the code into the comouter.

"I had some problems. before i joined the Echo. I know many people. who would like to have me dead." Oliver saied, without even look at Jack. "There was a conflict on Dantooine, and...."

Suddenly something popped up from the PC. A adress to where, the bottle was produced. Oliver looked on the name, and looked choked.

"I don't belive this! The bottle is from him!" Oliver showed the name. Nothing speciel - a Karl Notting from Dantooine. "It's my brothers company!"

"Resupply us?" Beryl said to Nic. She gave a sideways glance at Nic, then at Carmen, then Carmen's thugs. From all outside appearances, Carmen looked like an upstanding and wealthy citizen. But from the thugs, the rich furnishings for appearance's sake, and the calculating look behind her eyes, Beryl suspected that Carmen's history was a bit more delinquent than debutante.

What she wanted to say to Nic next was, "With what? Stolen merchandise?" What she ended up saying was, "That's very generous of her."

"Well, that's good news. Its a rather interesting way to get a favor from somebody. You know, trying to drag us here at blasterpoint and all," Ryshana replied to Nic. "We saw Cloud on our way in. It may be a good idea to pick him up on our way out."

"Way out? That's the best suggestion I've heard all day," Beryl commented. "Nic, can we... can we just go back to the ship now? I've had a really, really bad day."

"i'm sure you have." Nic sarcastically replied looking at Beryls dress. He turned to Carman. "The ship is in th..."

"Forest near the swamp just outside the city, I know." Carman interrupted

"of cource you do."

"Well a ship being hunted by the imperials does attract my attention."

Nic turned around and began to walk away, he flicked his hand signaling Beryl and ryshana to follow.

Ryshana looked a bit sideways at Nic as he gave them the signal to leave. "What's with the hand signals?? Can't you just order us to come along like you usually do?" Ryshana asked mockingly as she followed Nic with Beryl by her side.

Catching up to Nic, Ryshana gave him a quick smile to let him know that she was just joking.
