NPC Spotlight: Dog Officer Ruff

This week we take a bit of a different direction and will explore the personality and quirks of one of the few people to stand out in this universe despite not being trained in the force.

Kensuki Agasha Journal Entry for 4-7-12

Immediately after completing my Gempukku I am told to report to the wall. Once there I meet three other Samurai who have earned their right into adulthood. A familiar Dragon Bushi who goes by the name of Ryogin Mirumoto. A Phoenix Shugenja named Kokuta Isawa and his Bushi, Zako Isawa. After introductions we report to a Bushi of the Crab Samurai who issues us each a finger of jade. He stresses that we're always to keep the Jade with us at all times. We're also to remove any individual who is wounded or tainted by the shadow lands. We must also cut off the head of an dead so it may not rise again. Our mission is to travel to a Nezumi camp (rat people) and locate a beast that's been harassing them. We're to identify what it is and how to kill it, reporting all findings back to the Crab Samurai.

NPC Spotlight: Darth Blaze

A mystery figure, as little is known about her. There is even question as to whether she's still alive or not currently. However there is a lot to her, and dead or alive, she is still important to the future of some ships.

Computer Gaming

Last couple of weeks we've taken a break from our role playing and went to hit the computer games.

Game-A-Week: X-Crawl

This one has always seemed interesting to me. The setting is kind of a cool twist on the standard dungeon crawl and turn it into a game show almost. Sort of like Smash TV (an extremely awesome video game).

Talon Journal Entry for 3-30-12

We head back to the ISD Verdè and dock after an uneventful jump. Needing a break I leave the group in search of a drink while Kal speaks with Cyan and gets her to set up a Council meeting with three other ship captains. He's led into a room that has a console with three screens on it. Kal takes ten and activates the computer. Each screen displays a different captain, the first goes by the name Darth Blaze, she's wearing some sort of advanced Mandalorian armor. The second captain we've already met, a Hutt who goes by the name of Zanta. The third is a human female who goes by the name Knight Maryn.

Game-A-Week: Iron Heroes

 This next game is one that has always interested me. A low magic version of Dungeons and Dragons. Instead of magic we get different options for martial characters and a single magic using class.

Talon Journal Entry for 3-23-12

After a while the mining laser is complete and we're anxious to try it out. We jump to the asteroid belt that was found a little while ago. Upon exiting hyperspace we pick up visual scanning and still see many smaller ships harvesting the asteroids. Kal engages the thrusters and as soon as we move forward a few of the other ships break off and assume an intercept course. Kal switches on comms and hails them to be met by a gamorrean. The conversation is short and goes as well as it can with a gamorrean, it then transfers our channel over to another ship. There's some static on the screen and then a Hutt, great. Since Hutts only speak their native language Kal requests a translator. The Hutt pulls a guy in front of the screen, laughs and then spaces the guy! We request permission to mine offering a good split of what we find and the Hutt laughs as his ships move into attack formation. We take the hint and Hyperspace out of there.

NPC Spotlight: Master Grod

And now in this corner the master of pain, one of the strongest hand to hand combatants alive, and pretty tough with force powers. Master Grod, the Wookiee master of the force.

Act II

We're almost to Act II. We've been getting ready by earning experience and getting new ships to aid in the fight. However we have a bit of a struggle as we're learning that despite a lot of people willing to help, not many people will jump into a fight for no reason.

Nation Red- Contest

Today we're tying something new. This is going to be the first give away contest of hopefully many.

Talon Journal Entry for 3-16-12

Thane finally realizes that he's missing his lightsaber and asks me about it. I tell him to talk with Kal on that one. Kal makes a fuss about it but finally returns the weapon. We decide to recruit Darth Fae so we plot a course and jump back to her fleet. Upon arrival I ask for and audience with her and my request is granted after three hours. We're met by her apprentice who leads us to an audience chamber. Fae is there along with several robed figures who silhouette both sides of the chamber, cloaked by shadow. I waste no time and get to point of asking her to join our fight against the prophet. She accepts and I am very pleased. I also ask her about other 'Jedi' who might be willing to join our cause and she mentions Grod. Much thanks is given and we set off for another mid-range blip.
