The year is 0 BBY, roughly 5 days before Princess Leia is attacked and captured above Tatooine. You are TK-881, a newly enlisted Stormtrooper of the Galactic Empire. Having just completed your rigorous training, you have been deployed to reinforce the garrison on the desert world of Tatooine, which has suffered somewhat due to Tusken Raider attacks, and poor leadership. Equipped with standard Stormtrooper blast armor, all of its functionality, and a new E-11 blaster rifle, you disembark from the troop transport into a sandy hell of a garrison base. Your HUD updates, informing you that you should report to the registration terminal, then to your assigned bunk. Other Stormtroopers and Imperial Army units mill about the base, following orders, as a light sandstorm rolls over the walls, making your future here seem bleak. What would you like to do?>Go the registration terminal>Seek out a superior officer>Reboard the troop transport
>>29103461>Go the registration terminal
>>29103494Not one to shirk orders, especially when you're the Emperor's finest, you march immediately to the registration terminal and input your registration code. After a few tedious forms, you are assigned a bunk (88652), and are presented with deployment options. They include:>Settlement Security (AKA policework)>Frontier Security (AKA battling Tuskens)>Inquisitorial Security (AKA hunting insurgents)>Garrison Security (AKA Military Police/General Base Defense)
>>29103586>Inquisitorial Security (AKA hunting insurgents)
>>29103586>Settlement Security (AKA policework)We are the I.M.P.S

Rolled 1>>29103664I am fine with either.1 Inquisition2 Cops
>>29103616>>29103707Very good lad.After a few careful moments consideration, you select Inquisitorial Security. The system processes your input, tells you that your request will be sent to the garrison commander for consideration, and directs you to your bunk. You will receive orders first thing the next day. Your HUD changes to a green "Temporary Leave" state, and you are free to do what you want for the next several hours. Being near the town of Mos Eisley, you have a number of options open to you.>Visit your bunk and sleep the time away>Visit the Mos Eisley Bazaar>Visit the Mos Eisley Cantina>Mill around the Garrison and try to make friends>Explore the dunes outside the city>Practice soldiering at the range/armory>Other (suggestions open)
>>29103766>Visit the Mos Eisley Bazaar (Out of uniform/Under cover maybe?)let's see how the local Troopers do things around these here parts.
>>29103859This sounds good

>>29103646>>29103909Most people would call this the "ass end" of space, but I like the small town feeling you get around here. I mean, we know everybody. Everybody. And I feel like I can really make a difference out here.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LvswNDAAZCU
>>29103926You'll find standard regional Sandtrooper equipment and manuals at your bunk, until you go there you're stuck with standard plastic soldier gear.

>>29104026Ugh, sand in Storm armour chaffs easily something fierce, get into BDUs and visit the bazaar, if we're in the IBS we'll need contacts..
Rolled 1>>29104046I'll do this until we pick up some momentum and it becomes majority rule.You jog to the armory and practice for a few hours with CQC equipment, Blaster Rifles/Carbines, and desert warfare tactics, somewhat improving your edge in this new environment. The Quartermaster and Drill Sergeants give you some tips on the terrain and local wildlife. You come out feeling better prepared for the word you've landed on. After stopping by the bunk and properly equipping yourself for the area, you have just enough time to do one other thing:>Visit the Cantina>Visit the Bazaar>Mingle with allied troops
>>29104091I'll count this as a vote for bazaar post training
>>29104118>Visit the BazaarDo we have any Imperial Credits left over? We can see if they have any non-standard equipment or maybe make some "friends"
>>29104118>Visit the CantinaTime to get to know the locals.
>>29104118Visit the Bazaar

>>29104134>>29104162>>29104175>>29104182Overwhelming bazaar responseYou head into town, rifle slung over your shoulder, your grimy sandtrooper armor causing the odd shady character to shuffle out of your way. As you enter the bazaar, the sheer backwaterness of the world hits you. Dozens of merchants from stalls and stands hawk wares, trinkets, foodstuffs, weapons both legal and illegal, slaves, and other various wares. Despite your helmet's filters, the stench of a hundred different species, foods, and musks hit you.>Look for food vendors>Look for clothing vendors>Look for slave vendors>Look for illicit vendors>Look for weapon vendors>Interact with civilians and try to learn more about the city>Leave
>>29104182We're still a dirty scumsucking boot right now.We haven't earned the right to armor deco yet.
>>29104275>Look for weapon vendorsWe should get an off-duty piece. This is a rough town, and we might need it some day.
>>29104275Illicit vendors of what, exactly? Otherwise down for looking at guns.
>>29104375Contraband of all sorts.Probably spice and/or booze.
>>29104275>>Look for weapon vendorsLet's find out what kind of heat the Local lowlife boyos are packing
>>29104390Whut he said
>>29104275>Look for slave vendorsGet in the good graces of the criminal element, it makes being a member of the inquisitorial ISB much easier.
>>29104275>>Look for weapon vendors
>>29104297>>29104375>>29104397>Weapon VendorsYou browse around, and eventually find a part of the bazaar that seems to entirely be arms dealers, of various races, selling blasers, slug throwers, grenades, dart guns, even the odd disruptor and sonic rifle. (as a note, you have 350 Imperial Credits) As you browse, you realize most of the really good things are out of your price range right now, with DL-44s nearing 1300c. You could grab a small wristmounted dart launcher however for 200c that would easily attach to your armor. It comes with 30 Vintox darts, which paralyze the target for about 2 minutes. You can:>Purchase the Dart Thrower>Shake down the dealer and try to get something for free>Leave>Move on to other vendors
>>29104529>Purchase the Dart ThrowerWe're still a boot, so we're probably all naive and stuff, genuinely believing in the Imperial cause. Doesn't really make sense to start shaking down locals just yet.
>>29104529"Imperial Credits? IMPERIAL CREDITS? We don't take your money here, Jedi, we take something... more valuable...">>29104554But the Imperial Cause is one that is Legally Just and voted with a democratic majority of the planets, if you don't like the democracy our glorious Emperor established then you'd best start eating fancy food because it'll be your last meals.
>>29104529Wrist mounted dart shooter, huh? Mandalorian as fuck. Alright, we can grab that.
>>29104529Test it out before you buy it.
>>29104591>Mandalorian as fuck. Alright, we can grab that.All in favor of playing our character as a closet Mandoboo who's pretty lousy at actually hiding it?
>>29104615Fukkit, I kind of like Mandalorians (read as: got pissed the fuck off at seeing Clone wars animation bullshit level Mandabooness.)Let's try to make a jetpack, too.
>>29104615Oh god yes
>>29104615Fuck.No.>>29104657and fuck you too.>stormtrooper quest>LETS MAKE HIM A MANDALORIANI bet you'll make him a fucking jedi next.
>>29104529Test it, then if it works, buy it.
>>29104683No, he has to be a closet Sith as well. The Rule of Two only applies to the dipshits who don't supress their obvious power/murderhobo inside
>>29104716Fuck it, i'm ok with this. Carry on.
>>29104726No, stopnonono I WAS JOKING NONONO.
>>29104683It's meant to be played primarily for laughs, anon. A funny little character quirk.Also, pre-Traviss Mandos are pretty freakin' cool. Traviss ruined them by trying to make them "da best at ebryting" but what you're doing is like saying ninjas are all ruined simply because naruto is fucking stupid.>>29104716Actually, the Rule of Two makes complete sense. EVERY TIME the Sith throw it out, they get their shit pushed in. Because they fill up with tryhard idiots (like Darth Hamburgers in ToR, yes I played ToR, while it's not great, I don't really regret the money I spent on it either) and weaklings. The Rule of Two keeps them on their toes.
>>29104554>>29104591>>29104615>>29104607>>29104657You request a demonstration of the dart thrower to make sure it works. After a few test fires, you slide your credit chit, attach the loaded thrower to your wrist, and head back towards base. After taking a quick powernap and drinking some QikCaf from the Canteen on base, you report to the yard to receive orders. An officer in a shockingly flawless uniform stands resolute against the sandy wind, rigid and stern looking. He presses a few buttons on a datapad, and your HUD updates, changing blue to signify you're on duty, and to report to Inquisitor Bintaff In Bestine, to canvass the city for signs of insurrection or Jedi. You can:>Head to the shuttle pad to travel to Bestine>Return to your bunk>Request new orders from the officer
>>29104783>Head to the shuttle pad to travel to BestineTime to go to work.Gotta earn us a nickname.
>>29104783>Bestine.>Classy Fucking Name>Probably harsh and cruel-looking, but really a badass in combat. Good to have as a CO, too, I bet.To the Shuttlepad!
>>29104796Obviously Grimes.>your grimy sandtrooper armorWhat kind of new guy doesn't clean his handmedown issued equipment till it's spic and span?
>>29104783>>Head to the shuttle pad to travel to Bestine
>>29104836>he doesn't know about salty cammies
>>29104865I'd rather we not look like a shadowtrooper naturally just yet.
>>29104865We have yet to earn the comfort of saltiness, anon.
>>29104796>>29104818>>29104841Boarding the Shuttle, you strap in and notice you're the only trooper on the flight. Must not be a lot of guys who sign up for inquisitorial duty... After about 20 minutes, the shuttle lands in Bestine and you disembark, moving at a fast clip to the location of your Inquisitor and squad. When you finally arrive, Inquisitor Bintaff, an aging man in what appears to be hardened Novatrooper armor, nods to you, and introduces you to the squad. There's Sergeant TK-419 "Guts", Corporal TK-856 "Kryat", Corporal TK-043 "Ariel", and one other Private besides you, TK-612, who has yet to earn a nickname. You greet them in turn, and await the Inquisitor's orders. He begins to consult a datapad. While he does so, Guts greets you, and you spend a few minutes talking to the squad, getting to know them. Ariel is a female trooper, a rarity in this part of the galaxy, but you can't help but feel a bit relieved you're not stuck in an all male unit. Kryat seems to be a scary son of a bitch, apparently having spearheaded an impromtu Kryat Dragon hunt as a private, and personally having gunned the beast down with an E-web. Guts is a rank and file career soldier, having served in the Corps for almost 10 years now, back when it was still mostly made up of Fett clones. Bantiff is a Corellian native, and had been military advisor back in the Clone Wars. He had participated in the Jedi Purge, and has apparently kept the momentum going since then, rooting out enemies of the empire across 25 worlds. CONT.
>>29105036>served in the Corps for almost 10 years now, back when it was still mostly made up of Fett clones>participated in the Jedi PurgeFanboy modo engage?
>>29105036Bintaff finally confirms orders with Command, and informs you all that you're to sweep the cantina and town square today, while he investigates leads in the Bazaar. If you receive comlink orders to travel to his position, he's made a hit, or if you find something, you're to secure the area and contact him. After confirming orders, you and the squad head for the town square, and fan out in pairs, with Guts going alone. 612 and Kryat flank left to look for wanted individuals while you and Ariel fan right to search. Your HUDs will automatically scan faces and search the database, so this is fairly straightforward work. Guts has the hard job of trying to look for unusual activity that needs to be looked into outside of standard sweep procedure. As you search you can:>Try to chat with Ariel>Look super hard (roll, I'll average if it's chosen)>Question locals about rebel activity>Open fire into the crowd
>>29104778Actually, I was fine with what most of Traviss did. Jedi are cunts, armor dudes are cool, THE GUN IS GOOD, ect.It was really only the last book, maybe the last two, where she started going all mary sue as fuck.Also, I misread mandaboo as "mandalorian".Manadaboo parody is excellent, 10/10 would lurk happily.

>>29105170>I was fine with what most of Traviss did.Her stuff with the culture wasn't bad. She just tried too hard to make them the best at everything. It's not really in the Republic Commando books where it's a problem. It shows up more in the Legacy of the Force series, but pretty much all of the Legacy of the Force books were shite.
>>29105158Open fire.That aqualish is looking at us funny, he clearly has a blaster.
>>29105205>It shows up more in the Legacy of the Force seriesI didn't read them.This is probably why I don't get the hate. Repcom was god tier by star wars standards.

>>29105189>>29105235>>29105240You, the mighty TK-881, see... nothing. All in the Town square seems fine. You complete your sweep, reunite with the rest of the squad, and make for the Cantina. As you enter, the general rabble quiets slightly as the inhabitants see the Empire's finest march in. As the squad fans out and face checks, a cute Twi'lek dancer sends a wink your way. Ariel and Guts duck into the bar area, 612 asks a man who's blatantly selling deathsticks for an ID, and Kryat appears to be staring down a Trandoshan at the bar. You can:>Approach the Twi'lek>Try to get Kryat's attention before he starts a fight>Keep scanning>See if 612 needs help>Order a drink
>>29105371>>Approach the Twi'lek'eyyyyyyyy
Rolled 84>>29105371Lets go see if 612 needs help, newbies got to stick together.

>>29105409>>29105420>>29105444You head over to 612 and ask what's going on. The man in the booth has an open case of Death Sticks in front of him and is acting quite indignant that he's being investigated. 612 explains that the man believes he's doing nothing wrong."Listen fellas, I can tell you're new round here. You got the swagger of fresh meat. You try and take down every small time dealer in this city and you'll be in a meat processor before the weeks out. Now I don't want any trouble, and I ain't lookin to be sent to some spice mine somewhere for your Emperor. So hows about I just stick this here -He places a 400c chit on the edge of the table- and we act like nothin happened eh?"TK-612 shrugs at you and asks for your opinion. It /is/ almost a whole weeks salary in one day. You can:>Attempt to take him in>Take the Credits and split them with 612>Take the Credits and keep them>Shoot the dealer>Call Guts over>Let him go and don't take the credits
>>29105525It's not about the girl herself. it's about saving time when we have the pass. If we don't have to waste time finding a girl, we'll have more time for fun.>>29105567>Call Guts overLet's get a feel for how things are done around here.

>>29105567"Crime: Attempting to bribe an officer of Imperial Law. The penalty: Death." -blam-We Judge Dredd Now.Just kidding, that's fucking retarded. He selling spess cigerettes, let him go.
>>29105585>>29105620>>29105650You raise Guts on the comms and he comes over to the table. Eyeing the situation, he chuckles and says "Denner, hanging around Bestine again? Thought you woulda smartened up the last time we nabbed you. Ah well." He grabs the Credit chit and splits it between you and 612, then pulls his sidearm and levies it at the dealer's head. He radios in and within minutes a trio of Imperial Army police officers enter the cantina and drag him away. Guts nudges you both and tells you to think out of the box sometimes. Denner was small time, no one really cared about him. But it's good to check in, because Tatooine is Hutt territory, and if you piss off the wrong people you'll go missing. He chuckles again and heads off back into the bar area. Sharing a bewildered moment with 612, you can:>approach the Twi'lek>scan moar>talk to 612 some

>>29105840>>29105816>>29105813You scan some more, but don't really find anyone of interest. No com calls from Bantiff come, and besides Denner, nothing of note happens for the day. The squad travels back to the Bestine barracks and Bantiff shows up a few minutes later. You all debrief on Denner and then crawl into local bunks for some shuteye. You're hitting the Bazaar and spaceport tomorrow, then Mos Espa the next day. While laying in bunk, you notice the rest of the squad are somewhat night owls, staying up a bit late before they hit the hay. You can:>Ignore them and go to sleep right away>Talk to Guts>Talk to Kryat>Talk to Ariel>Talk to 612
