https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kgLdYFNZySAYou are SB-62, informally known as Stud Bucket. After a long period of transient deactivation in the snowy reaches of the icy planet CRONDRE, you have awoken at last to a galaxy changed from the times you knew during the Clone Wars. The Republic ceased to exist two decades ago, and ruling in it's place is the oppressive GALACTIC EMPIRE. Now it's up to you to revive the Confederacy of Independent Systems and try to make a change to this dark future, and with a little help, you might just be able to.+==========================+Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?tags=Stud%20Bucket
RECAP: Previously on Battle Droid Quest...Your journey began with you awaking out of time on an ancient battlefield from the era of the Clone Wars and immediately setting off to search for other Droid survivors. You found and partnered up with a functional Octuparra Combat Tri-Droid before encountering a strange alien child named Mimve, who is a Nelvaanian. You see her gathering weapons and upon imploring her, discover she wants to use them to stage an uprising against the Clones of this time, who are enslaving her people at the direction of the sector governor, Moff Dunsal. Conscripting her into the Confederate Army, the two of you decide to find the nearby Foundry that was built secretly on this planet. However, you come to discover a squad of the Imperial Army present, planning on having the Foundry destroyed. After a brief skirmish, you are able to defeat the Imperials with the help of Mimve.After entering the Foundry, you uncover the existence of the Super Tactical Droid that was to command it, Nu-Phi-9923 'General Merxelles'. The General informs you that you are free of your programming as a result of so long a deactivation, but you remain adamant that your allegiance is to the CIS even after he tells you of what has gone on since the Clone Wars ended. Agreeing to work together, you both now aspire to rebuild the Confederacy on a new foundation free corruption after Merxelles unveils his theory about the Galactic Emperor's identify to you, being aware of Darth Sidious and his dealings with Nute Gunray in the past.Enlisting the help of Mimve, you travel to her home slave town of Sprawl and become acquainted with her close ones. Her sister, a Jedi Apprentice named Naa'diss Kapache, and their adoptive father figure, a Gotal Jedi Master of old named Marjar'Hudool. With the blessing of the Master and his credits, you don a disguise and set out to a cantina in the town, joined by Mim'vess and Naa'diss, seeking to recruit a local Corellian engineer by the name of Dugok in the hopes of having him help restore the Foundry to full operational order...

>>4673231I'm going to stop rolling now unless there's a reason to or if I'm following a joke
At your behest, Naa'diss had to use the Force on the stubborn Rodian named Shint, for there didn't seem to be any other reasonable way past the Imperial checkpoint than by through his cart full of metals for you to remain undetected within."Shint, I'm asking you once more. Help us pass that checkpoint."With a motion, Naa'diss waved her hand lightly. You've never seen Force powers in use... well, not this closely at least. Those Jedi sure did have a lot of tricks up the sleeves of their robes.The Rodian seems to become dizzy for a fledgling second."Uhhh, I-I... will... Uhh, y-yeah! I'll help you! Come on.. lets... err.. go!"It worked, the Rodian was now on board completely, and you could sneak through. Though, somehow, Naa'diss looks a little disappointed, and you couldn't tell why.Maybe you could find out later, right now, you begin disassembling your magnetically locked limbs to load yourself into the Rodian's cart. It would only be a matter of walking past, then coming out into an alley, swiftly...
Locop-Beugiin: Karadocoppa's Cantina.Early morning time in Sprawl.
"Erhhh, look at those clums, lik'tah cut that silly hat tah pieces.""Grhhhhh....!"
"Tzah-bzh-zbh-zha-zhab-zbah.""Ein cdij, eghhh.... sduka fallum rozi bojbo zndiffy!""Tzah-zbah-zbah-zbah-bhz-zbh...."
>>4673278I'm angry, angry about droids
>>4673280Now we just need a sad one
"Well... this looks like a.... friendly local...?"That's a blatant lie but you're getting pretty tired of trouble at this point for things that sound like they should be so simple to do. Firstly, this place is a cantina, so drunkards will be as copious as the booze, and cantinas are also known hotspots for criminals, riff-raff, cut-throats, brigands, rogue spacers and bounty hunters to lobby at. Secondly, you just want to get Dugok and then leave this place. It's as nasty as the rusty sole of a Astromech's foot."Trust me, this is anything but. Dugok is usually an esteemed guest, since he's the town's tinker. He'll be at the back, we'll need to ask the bartender, Karadocoppa, for permission but he'll let us through if we have business with Dugok. Come, this way, waste no time....""Oh, alrig... oh."Well dang it, they just went on ahead without you. Man, it's dim in this place, don't they have lights? Uhh... where did Mim'vess and Naa'diss go...?
"Negola dewaghi wool dugger?"Oh, your first friendly local, which is a blatantly false description.As you walk through the cantina, doing your best not to bump into some drunkard or a table, it seems one of them elected to bump into you instead. An Aqualish from the looks of it, he's got the typical appearance of a bruiser.ACCESSING DATABASE....Oh, it looks like he's calling you a 'fancy pants outsider' and asking if you're a 'wetty'. Whatever that meant...."Dola gugger awhal begali neh drum!"Oh, he doesn't like you. He's probably really drunk, he might start throwing fists"Uhh...? I don't even know you. What did I do to you?""Dug dug, nug ippa lushuli bagwah, chipon yuduni!"Now he's asking if you'd like for him to gut you like a Mon Calamari. That's really racist of him. He apparently doesn't need provocation to get mad.>What will you do?
>>4673300Redirect his drunken anger.That's nice and all, but I heard some guy over there was talking mad smack about your mom. You gonna let that guy dis your family like that brudda?Then make way to bar
>>4673209That new thread smell.
>>4673300>Point the dude towards someone else or ask him heads or tails for if he want to fight flip a coin if it's what he picks we fight
>>4673318>coinsWho even uses coins?
>>4673280>Point at this guy“He said your face looks like genitalia!”
>>4673300Just punch him out. Its a cantina full of scum and villainy, nobody will care.
>>4673351We have weak bone arms I think
>>4673355B1s are stronger than they look.https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=VnpeeIuohco
>>4673359The head has better armor than the body
>>4673359True, but we dont want to draw the attention of other patrons.
>>4673366We have minimum 3-5 people looking at us
>>4673366>>4673370Like I said, its a cantina, nobody will care. Obi Wan got away with slicing this exact same guy's arm off and nobody batted an eye. Punching him out will get ignored.
>>4673380>Alright so Redirect or BALLROOM BLITZ
Rolled 2 (1d2)>>4673402I'ma flip a coin between these two
>>4673417>TIME FOR A BALLROOM BLITZ Let's punch this man so hard one of our fingers break if he swings
>>4673300Ah, the gential-faced race of glorkion-5, must be pissed because a indecency law was passed which forces them to wear bandanas whenever they go out.>Toss him a single credit and tell him to shrak offIf we don't have a credit, kick him in the shins as hard as you can.
"Couk couk, fagi lecta nepon!"He continues to drone on with speciesist insults towards you, as if trying to narrow down what might set you off. You really didn't have time for this man, nor his whole story as he tells you he is the "infamous Ponda Baba" and could kill you in a matter of seconds. He's really starting to spill it when he lists how many ways he could kill you, so you need a distraction to get out of there. You look around quickly and your optics land on the single ugliest man you see."Pal, pal, pal." You say, cutting him off and putting a hand on his shoulder before pointing off towards the bar. "-You shouldn't waste your time with me, really, I'm nobody. But now, uhh... you know who you should really go get? That guy over there. I heard him talking kriff about your mother, and he said your face looks like a ball sa-""Nhui huoonie?" (That guy?)"Yeah, him, the one with the really kriffed up face who looks like a Rancor and a Reek had a love baby.""Gooply dreni negaloo bu shiidi, fagi dadafrum malawhi!" (That's my best friend ever, Doctor Cornelius Evazan! We're both wanted in twelve systems!)"Uh oh."Negola potpot queni loliwhi majashara gantre dugooni!" (I'm going to rip your head off and shove it down your as)It's at this point as he shoves you and makes a scene, you realize what you gotta do, and you gotta do it quick."QOOOF!"Pow! Right in the crotc-Er, face! You knew it was only gonna get worse, and this is already a hive of dirtbags. Putting him down was the only rational choice. Because, well, he's made out of soft organic flesh, and your knuckles are as brass as the armor plating of a Multi-Troop Transport. It was clear, this could have gone only one way.
>>4673500ACTIVATE PUNCH YOU REALLY HARD SUBROUTINE!
Now, normally, dirtbags don't care if another dirtbag gets knocked down, and while your temporary scene draws much attention for the moment, a few glares, laughs and long stares, the attention recedes gradually as Ponda Baba lays unconscious on the flipped over table you put him in.Of course, there's always the slight chance it isn't normal, and there is in fact someone in the crowd who's going to take an interest beyond just viewing the disturbance to the peace and then looking away. Well, this is unfortunately one of those moments. It couldn't not be with you. However, the one taking an interest isn't Doctor Evazan, he's too drunk to notice his partner in crime get flattened.Enter Twagi, he's a Zabrak slave colonist here to have a nice and refreshing drink like everyone else at the bar. He's also the town's prime druggie, and a supplier of the extremely addictive hallucinogen, Death Sticks. And right now? He's as high as a freighter. And the one thing he loves doing more than drinking and abusing his sticks? You guessed it. Rough housing.Now let's just say your little display there fueled his less than rational intent, and he looks like he's about to pop. And wouldn't you believe, all it would take is him throwing a glass and shouting 'CANTINA CLAAAASH' to start up a good old bare fight? Well, the question is... will he? Or will be able to restrain himself? Let's see...>Roll for luck.>2d80.

CRASH!"...Tzhah-bzhuh-zbuh-zbuh-zbuh-zbuh-zbuh."Well... passing out from alcoholism is technically restraint to oneself, right? I mean, he isn't moving, but he's still paying if the Talz bartender's strange vocalization is of any indication.
Wading past the bar, you see Mim'vess and Naa'diss again standing near the door to a VIP lounge marked as 'closed', the older sister wise enough to know to get to the back and out of the way of rabble immediately, if only they had waited for you though."Nadish... what we do now...?" You hear Mim'vess ask, sounding disheartened."We'll see.... Ah, Stud Bucket, sorry for running off, but you can see why we did now.""I guess it's no problem. What's the matter here?""We tried to go in so we could offer Dugok the deal you had, but Credits aren't enough to change his mind, at least not in our hands unfortunately. He ran us out as soon as he saw us.""Why's that?""Because he's afraid for his life clearly. We're associated with the Rebel cell, he doesn't want anything to do with us for fear of being connected. The Empire already suspects him, as he isn't a slave and stays in town all the time.""Did you try to tell him about the Foundry?""No, he's clueless right now. Maybe you should be the one to talk to him." Naa'diss suggests as she shoves Marjar'Hudools card full of credits into your hand.Well, it's worth a shot. Nodding to the pair, you step past them clutching the credit card and push past the door to the VIP lounge. The lounge is brighter than the actual cantina, tinted red from the lights. It is empty, but in the corner, you spot a rather doughy man sitting alone with a drink and a pipe in hand and walk up. Upon seeing you, he sighs and rolls his eyes."You with them rebel chicks, bud?""No. Well, I mean, yeah, but also no. Technically?"He narrows his eyes. "Whatevah' the hell that means. If not, I guess you're here for my expertise. Look pal, I'll tell you like I tell the rest, if your standardized unit's air system is munked up and ya' gots no heat, contact the Imperial Assistance Department, it's their job to maintain whatever dumpster shed you're living in, even if you have to wait a year for them to actually fix it.""Uhh, I don't need help with that. I was hoping you could me restore a power generator.""A powah' generator? Really? There's only one in town, and I already handle that.""Not here.""Well, damn it, now you actually got my attention. But I'm afraid I still can't. Today... I was made a slave officially by my not so benevolent overlords... which means I'm gonna be put on a tighter schedule from now on, from here to Crondre City. In other words... I don't gots the time for anything now. Keep your credits pally, I can't help you. Now shoo, this is the last break from work I'll ever get right here, let me enjoy it in peace...."Well, he sounds defeated... it appears to be time for you to work your vocal magic again.>What will you say?
>>4673615>take off our mask"This is a *special* power plant, mister Dugok."
>>4673615>>4673619>take off our mask"This is a *special* power plant, mister Dugok. Get it working, and droid will do all the heavy lifting for you. You can have as many breaks as you want.”
>>4673620very likely a management or overseer position also
>>4673615Let's just say it's a very big thing, something that could give the imps a run for their money. We're not lying here because droid foundries make big numbers, and pure numbers aren't anything to scoff at. Part of the reason why I want to still be discreet about this is because we're still in a public place, and you never know when some bumblefuck who just happens to be a snitch will stumble onto something they shouldn't see>>4673619I don't think doing this is very smart. Both for keeping ourselves on the down low but also because we don't exactly know what his stance is on droids, or the clone wars and CIS for that matter.
>>4673623Can't we just pull off our mask, rather than taking it off completely? Just show him we're not a normal droid.Also, i'm pretty sure that the clone wars are just history at this point. I will say i agree with the part about taking care, though. The last thing we want is some big shot like Tarkin, Thrawn or God Forbid, Vader, comes over here.
>>4673619Isn't that extremely painful?
>>4673619lets not remove it but flip up the bandanna so he can see our face
>>4673631I mean just the bandana, not our entire faceplate. That would be excruciating.
>>4673623Support. He'll get the hint when we very subtly drop a tip about the existence of the Foundry.>>4673631Stud Buckets a big bot.
>>4673631we dont feel actual pain as we dont have well pain nerves but we do have survival programming that fill us with excruciating all consuming pain and clarity of mind and fear that cant be dampened or ignored good thing its a bit more accurate then nerves bad thing is that someone can spam our literal pain button whos pain never dulls
>>4673615>>4673623Support this, but lets field him on his position regarding droids first. Cause we can promise him something along the lines of a dedicated workforce, as well as a serious leap up in status from slave if he helps us. Free room but he gets his own board, and neither he nor anyone else will be slaves on this planet ever again. Think about it! The chance to work on priceless antiques amd get paid doing it, with the possibility of upward mobility, all while sticking it to the goons who dumped all this crap work on you. Word it like that.>>4673641For you.
>>4673644Alright, support. We won’t take off the bandana, but I still want to do a dramatic reveal in private later.
>>4673615>>4673619"This is a *special* power plant, mister Dugok.Depending on how you perform there might be an opportunity for further employment. Consider this a job interview. ">>4673742lol
>>4673770Yeah pretty much this
>>4673615Then you have more than enough reason to break that leash on you. Help me and we can get you loose.>>4673619>>4673623>>4673770Support without taking off the bandana. Keep it discrete.
>>4673770I support this if there's something like curtains for this booth pull them shut first
>>4673615We can smuggle you out
>>4673631Stud Bucket is a big guy.
>>4674135Bug Gucket is a stig buy?
>>4674182DID I HEAR STIGhttps://youtu.be/y86nbhR5exE
>>4674217Oh god its the STIG!
>>4674182Here we have SB's new adversary Bug Bucket a reccuring antagonist as the first droid recently made by the repaired foundry as an accident happened while attaching the head damaging their processor they now fight for a warped version of freedom
>>4674217Some say he produces blue milk from his nostrils, and that he thinks womp-rats aren't real.>>4674228Deep lore
>>4674228Hey, maybe he's the droid that Stud Bucket stole an arm from.
>>4674272Or a droid that a bug crawled into causing part of their processor to short out
>>4674318Or a combination after having his arm stolen the dual effects of petty belligerent rage and a bug
"What if I told you that by helping me, you'll be able to challenge the ruling party in these parts who've got their iron boots slanted across your neck?"Dugok peers up at you, and then scoffs."So you are one of them Rebel boys, either that, or you're a pirate. Gang leader or representing? You one of Rundo's boys?""I'm with none of those. I consider myself myself apart of a very peculiar third party.""Listen pal, I've heard your whole deal before more than once. Bottom line is, nobody challenges the Imperials. Not even Rundo wants todo' that and they say he has one of them laser swords and magic abilities like the old Jedi cult on Coruscant did. I've heard news of a few Gladiators wiping out whole pirate fleets before."You stride forward and throw your poncho about, swinging your leg up to plant a foot in one of the seats before leaning on your knee, taking Dugok by surprise with your spontaneous flash. Was this personality being developed on instinct? You're not sure Droids are capable of instinct, your Droid Brain must be running wild again."I never tell a lie." You say, telling him a lie. "I full well intend to challenge the Empire, and I can back up my boast. With your help, I'd be able to raise a force great enough to. The production rate of a Droid Foundry isn't a joke!"With that, Dugok stops his smoking and drinking mid-sip, looking over the rim of his glass at you with surprise. His brows furrow as his expression changes to a look of obstinate suspicion when he lowers his glass. He takes a moment to look over the bottle of his alcoholic beverage as if curious that what he heard wasn't just in drunk stupor."Now, I drink my sorrows away a lot, so excuse me if I'm not hearing you correctly. But, did you just say... a 'Droid Foundry'? Like one of them old ones the Seppies had back in the day?""Roger roger.""Roger? ....You a Droid, ain't you?" He questions, staring up into your glowing eyes, to which you only nod, a metal rasping sound emanating from your neck.
"Hmmph. You know, I was born on Corellia. I moved with my uncle to Dantooine before the Clone Wars broke out. During the war, my uncle's farmstead was burned to the dirt by them Battle Droids, and my unk and aunt were both mercilessly shot down by them too. I survived by the skin of my teeth at that time as a kid.""I'm sorry to hear that, I-uh-""I don't believe no freakin' Droid has feelings. I don't hate Droids, but I sure don't like em' either. I joined the Republic Navy during the war to work on Clone vehicles so they could trash more of you clankers, you know."You only twiddle your fingers at that. Dugok relents for the second, looking you over before staring around at the surrounding room, as if checking to see if the ambience has changed. He then turns back to you as he reaches under the table, and you see him pull out something. A Blaster, which he puts on display in his ready reach before speaking in a more quieter tone."You know, the Empire relies on competence. Only way to survive in the Imperial ranks? Being useful, and loyal. You wouldn't believe how easy it'd be for me to jump the ladder and get a nice, high position in the Moff's court turning you in and revealing your plot.""But then, your people would still be suffering.""On this planet? Not my people. I was moved here for work by the Empire, relocated after I applied for a steady income in return for my skills. Clearly, it didn't work out. But bam if that wouldn't make it work out." He muses, taking another deep whiff of his pipe.It's at this point you snake your hand back under your poncho to grip the KYD blaster you had hidden there, sensing the tension rising a little as he thinks over his options, and not ones in your favor."That's a cruel thing for me to say and I hate it cause I know it's wrong, but after all I've been through on Dantooine? Now? I may have grown a bit selfish. Okay, very selfish. I'm for myself, I gotta place my survival above all, ya' know? Excuse me, but I'm thinking about what road here grants the most reward. Ole' Dunsal keep those helpful he favors in his gilded lined pocket, full of lucre and more. Where do you keep yours? And what's there where you keep yours, huh?""You sure made the break out to be a big deal. Hop on board with me and you can take as many as you want. Heck, you can even have a workforce of Droids to do your work for you, granted you contribute your part. Think about it, a board of your own, a place of your own.""Yeah? And getting on the Moff's good graces could probably give me the same and more. I'm not the most privy to slave labor, but I'll admit it'd be nice to see that palace of his finished. Maybe even live in it.... Point is, I just wanna play my cards right and see what takes me farther, and I ain't sure pallin' up with the guys that don't rule the galaxy is the right way to go bout that.">What will you do?
>>4674691Does the Empire really strike you as the carrot over the stick types? Tell them and at best they're probably just going to say "well done now get back to work slave"
>>4674691And yet here you are a slave drinking yourself to depressing and Moff is know sector wide for his generosity and love of traitors hence why everyone must know of how he treats them generously and lavishly with gifts and rewards instead of pocket change worth of credits and a swift boot out the door, or airlock if you complain. You'd be stuck in running up the ladder in the same place for the rest of your life.I'm offering you a lot more than just credits and a minor bump in your station in life, I'm offering you t-to change your circumstances forever, and your only limit is how hard your willing to work for it, the sky is no limit with us.Totally OOC but maybe someone can "driod" it up a bit.
>>4674691>"How long do you think the Empire would keep up their end of the bargain? Long enough for you to retire? Or would they even let you? A faction full of sycophants and barely veiled cruelty is your meal ticket? At least with us droids you know where you stand, logically, rationally. Once you're done you're done and out. Safe and sound with a nice severance package. How far can you trust that not only will your superiors remain truthful but your peers as well? There doesn't need to be a better engineer than you, just a more liked one. Side with us and maybe you could even own that palace they're making you build."Much too wordy. TL:DR; can't trust the Imps, or even your fellow man since their all looking out for their own skins too.
>>4674791>theirFug you stupid automatic hands. *they're
>>4674691>"While the Empire may be the current power, and a nominal meritocracy, it is irrational. Its current power structure is a deck of cards, led by someone that is quite literally evil. All it takes is a Moff's bad day to see you terminated. Within a Droid-State, you would be invaluable. You best of all people should understand that Droids and Organics are interdependent. The design of our foundry, for example, requires organics, such as you, to function. We need you, the Empire can discard you at will. You need not trust a droid, but do a human. The choice is obvious, yes?"
>>4674691Now that's ni guarantee. You be a good slave for the empire and all you'll get is a good sticker and a pat on the back. Down the line? They'll probably only see you as a disposable asset seeing how soon you were to dispose of some droids since they'd see you no better than a snitch. That or just you waiting for some other snitch to replace you. Help us help you? You'll have a whole lot of friends, and a lot more money. >>4674791>>4674827Support
>>4674791>>4674827I like a mix of these two support
>>4674715>>4674720I know we’re not Merxelles, but I feel like if we opened the communicator this is exactly what he would say.Unless we can’t reach him, let’s try and call. He can provide evidence and big brain arguments.
>>4674791>>4674827Mix of the two
Dugok seems more like the 'one for all' type. He's riddled with material desires, covetous of fortune, willing to look for what he thinks is the 'smartest' way to go about things for an easy way out. At the same time, he's willing to work hard in the hopes of attaining something. It is true, he could sell you out to the Empire right now and get granted some waifs for his deed, but the idea he suggests is chock full of flaws he isn't considering either."How long do you think this Moff would keep you around if you did that? Would it be enough to retire? Do you even get to retire in the Empire?""Depending on how long you've served, yeah.""Well alright, so you do get to retire. It's just a matter if you last long enough to." You say, pointing at him."What are you implyin', Droid?"Well, he already said it himself, he should know. Time to fire up the processor for overtime. Leaning over the table, you put all battery power into the Logic Module."You say the Empire relies on competence, but then you suggest yourself earning a place near the top with the Moff by stopping whatever we have planned before it happens. Sounds like you'd be an errand boy informant. Well, you obviously gain value to the Moff that way, just until he finds someone he likes better, or someone does the same to you. You make it sound just like the old Republic's Senate, corrupt, full of shady backroom deals, where Senators can rise and fall at a m-m--Tcchhs--omentsss notice."Dugok squints at you, raises his glass for another swig and then tilts his head a bit. "You're a Seppie aren't you? Apart of a holdout or something? Only thing I can imagine owning a Foundry besides the Empire today. Well, I know one thing, the Seppies were mostly Nemoidians. A Nemoidian you can trust as far as you can throw a Rancor Bull. You say that I wouldn't last as long in the Empire going down this route, but I take it you mean to say I would with you?"You shake your head. "There aren't any organics of any sort with me. It's just me and my Droid general. The tw-tkk-ooo Nelvaanians outside are my only other organic contacts. I'm looking forward to rebuilding the Separatist Alliance with my general... and we plan to make it mostly Droid oriented!"Dugok chokes up for a second on his pipe, going into a coughing fit at that. "Y-kwough! Kough! You're saying it's all Clankers then?! You want me to help a... a... a what? Organization of just Droids?""We need organics too, which is why I'm trying to recruit you, Dugok. With us, you know where your standing always is and you'll have your own unique place, like I said. Go..."[SEARCHING DATABASE FOR ADEQUATE WORDING....]"...shack up with the Moff, and you'll be surrounded by superiors and subordinates just as ambitious as you to rise through the ranks. Power hungry Imperials who wouldn't mind knocking a fatso like you out to climb over your head!"
Dugok doesn't seem offended by you suddenly calling him fat, he sits and mules over this for the minute, looking around cautiously. Was he nervous of this conversation being eavesdropped on or something?"Of all the things anyone could have approached me with today, I didn't expect it to be a Droid asking me to help him... fixing up an army or something. I'm not big on the Empire or anything... I don't like em', don't think that. But it just seems like those Imps get a lot of perks, the Imp job sector was obviously tempting.""Y-Y-You said you'rrrrrrre not 'privy' to the slave labor that goes onnnn h-kkk-ere. The Moff logically wouldn't ac-shhh-c-cept someone with an opposing view to his operation into his fold.""Stop being right already, I'm tryin' to think.""..."Dugok sits there pondering for a time. Your gaze shifts between the large Corellian and the beaming of a wall clock above as time sped by.He had better make his choice fast, you either wanted to hear him agree to your terms or shoot him. You'd assume immediately that anything other than accepting your offer meant he intended to croak to the Imperials, and you couldn't have that. Your hand was still resting on your blaster, just in case..."Ughhh..... alright, you." He broke the silence, sliding back and standing up as you did the same. "Listen, I don't want to be tethered. I'd help you, but I'm not sure how long you expect me to stick around.""When we no longer have a use for you, that is if you stop being of a use to us, we won't shoot you like the Imperials. We'll gladly let you go on your way in peace. We'll even give you severance pay on the way."Dugok scratches the back of his head. "Really now? So, you have that planned out already? Consulted your... General or whatever, huh?"...Oh, scrap. Merxelles might not have the same idea in mind as you."Uhh, well...""So listen. If I help you and come on board for a while, you're telling me that when I feel like I'm done and have earned enough, I can bail whenever I want? No tethers keeping me behind? Cause I thinking, when I'd made a good enough amount that I can retire safely, I'd take my fortune and go back to Corellia, live out my days there. You're telling me I have that option?" He asked, eying you sternly.You... might have charged into this headlong without any approval or advice from the General. Okay, that maybe might have been a mistake, because you reiterate, you don't know the General's own long term plans. So what are you supposed to tell him? Are you just going to.... lie? Well, you have lied before, but it seems like you don't like to even though you can, lying makes the Logic module have a phase.>What will you do?
>>4675087>open up communications: “Why not talk to him yourself?”
>>4675087>Bring in Cool Uncle Merxelles
>>4675087Lets just say yes for now and get back to the Foundry. I assume we can't sent data to Merx without our backpack, we'll talk there.
>>4675136You can still transmit data to him with the communicator he gave you.
>>4675148Transmit this conversation we had and the situation so he can do a informed choice
>>4675148Let's do this.
>>4675148+1, but start off by saying>"Merxelles, we have found our engineer, with the very reasonable conditions of him being able to leave when the bantha dung hits the fan and a pension when he does. "Clue him in into not being too aggressive/demanding.
>>4675151>>4675169These too? Sure.
>>4675169Backing, this Dugok is based
>>4675184Seems like a prick to me, hows he based exactly?
>>4675190He's been completely upfront with us about his intentions, zero deception on his part and he didn't flinch at the bants
>>4675169Backing. Merx should know that a workforce that believes it has a choice is always good PR. And good PR is how you get the big population on your side.
>>4675191True, lets just hope he doesn't decide to bail on us without saying so first.
>>4675195That's why we give him a bodyguard the split-second we get assassin droids up and running
>>4675198With synthetic tits
>>4675206Snythighs and snythits.
>>4675151>>4675169+1 to these but I thought we were always transmitting?
>>4675169I agree. I mean....i don't think credits are going to be an issue to Merxelles. Chances are, he can probably get into Nute Gunray's swiss bank account.
"Yes, I am.""Hurnnn... Well, I guess it's better than working in the slave zone. Alright... I'll help you." Dugok states.Mission accomplished. Now, you could finally get onto the big work."Excellent. We should depart as soon as we can to start.""Hold your Tauntauns a bit. I gotta grab my stuff first. I have a big snow tractor, it can go a long ways. I also live in it, kinda convenient. We can take it out of town. I'll need to work up a proper excuse to give the Staff Sergeant at the town post first though."You nod to Dugok as he went to stuff his bag full of drinks from the lounge cabinet for the road. Deciding to relay your intel thus far to General Merxelles, you pull the communicator he gave you and plug it into your head's obscured socket for connections."General sir. I have acquired the engineer. I am on my way back to the Foundry now.""GOOD, THIS IS PLEASING PROGRESS. A WORD OF ADVICE HOWEVER, BE CAREFUL ON THE RETURN TRIP, THE TUNDRA WASTELAND IS USUALLY PATROLLED BY PIRATES AND GANG BRIGANDS.""Uh, sir, there is one more thing. I promised the engineer he would have the option to leave our service at any time he wants to, or whenever the Mynock dung hits the turbines, and that he'd get a pension once he did too.""....HMM.... DID YOU NOW?"General Merxelles brings up the holo display, and as soon as you see the Super Tactical Droid's diminished form, you recoil at his finger coming into your face. He maintained the connection, only allowing you to hear him."YOU SHOULD NOT HAVE DONE THAT, IT WAS WITHOUT MY PERMISSION. YOU ARE INDEPENDENT, BUT AS WE ARE BOTH IN THIS TOGETHER, AND I AM THE ONE GIVING DIRECTIONS, I EXPECT YOU TO FALL BACK TO ME FOR ADVICE WHEN YOU ARE CLUELESS AS TO WHAT YOU SHOULD DO. I ALSO EXPECT YOU TO INQUIRE FOR MY OPINION AS WELL BEFORE YOU MAKE A CRITICAL CHOICE OR OTHERWISE LIKE THIS AGAIN. YOU ARE NOT A GENERAL YET, NOR DO YOU HAVE THE CALCULATING CAPABILITY OF ONE.""Uh-uhh, y-yes sir! Sorry, sir!""I DO NOT MIND THESE CONDITIONS YOU HAVE SET. THEY ARE WITHIN REASON. ALTHOUGH, I WILL HAVE TO WORK ON FINDING A WAY TO FILL THE VOID HE WILL LEAVE IF HE ABANDONS WORKING FOR US SOONER THAN ANTICIPATED.""Whatever you do, don't use any of those 631s.""WE DON'T EVEN HAVE A SINGLE 631..... NOW, I AM DISAPPOINTED YOU DID NOT CONTACT ME FIRST. TAKE BETTER CARE TO REMEMBER YOU NEED MY OPINION TOO NEXT TIME.""Roger roger."General Merxelles cuts the transmission at that. You unplug your communicator and stuff it back into your pocket.Somehow you think he wouldn't even have noticed the condition you swore to Dugok if you never told him. Oh well, time to leave.
"Well, it seems Stud Bucket has gotten the best of both of us, Dugok." Naa'diss chimes as you exit the VIP lounge with the Corellian."Stud Bucket? Heh, that's what they call you?""Roger r-Er, Yep.""Hmm. So, if you two gals are hopping on his wagon, that mean you ain't having anythin' to do with them... Red Bells anymore?""Oh no, I at least still intend to do what I can, even if I'm helping our new... acquaintance. I hope what he has planned will be just as big a help to the local cell as we've been to him thus far...""I see. Well, looks like we've got a little team brewin' then. Hey, Mim'vess, hows school been?""Ugh! Hate it... Imrial history month!""Sounds borii- WHAT IN THE NAME OF BENDU-"".Uwagh?! What going on..?!" Mimve gasps, clutching to you for safety."Uh oh."
"CAAAAANTIIIIINNNAAAAAAA CLAAAAAAAAAASSSSSHHHHHH!"Oh. Well it was your luck. Turns out ole' Twagi wasn't down for the count when he fell out. Looks like he started up a good romp after all!
Tables were being flipped, drinks sent flying! Chairs were being whipped! Everyone was having a... a... a blitz! Throwing punches, casting kicks! Ooohhh! You see one get through off the second floor!
>>4675386aw fuck we gotta slip before the cops get here
Ouch! Talk about nasty, those two Devaronians were using one of the Grans as a battering ram to poke holes in the wall! And that Trandoshan was a few seconds away from attempted murder! Force above! But you especially feel bad for the guy getting beat up by the Wookiee in the background as another human in a vest tries to tear their large furry friend away from the violence!You look up ahead and see the exit past all the violence."Uhhh.... Dugok? There's a back door exit, right?""Have you see how tightly packed the buildings are in this town? Take a good guess."".....Hutt spit...."Well, you gotta somehow maneuver around the Cantina clash to safety. You take point and lead the others ahead, trying to go around...
Oh lovely, a burly Gamorrean wrestler who happened to be waiting behind a wall you passed."GHRUUUUUNNNKKKK.....!"And he was every bit as angry and drunk as the rest of the establishment's patrons. You don't speak grunt, but that growl he made and the blast of air coming from his nostrils probably translated to something along the lines of "I'm going to tear your head off".>Better act fast before the piggy squeals and squashes you.
>>4675392"Hey, at least buy me a drink first."
>>4675392Punch him in the eyes or twist both his nipples, then leg it out of there with everyone. I mean look at them they're huge. Make sure Mimve is safe.
>>4675397Don't think the nipple twist will be effective, we want to stun him, not to try to cause him pain. Some norf-looking lad like this is probably easily able to ignore the pain from a twist.
>>4675392Kick him in the BALLS! CLASSIC Barfight tactic, plus we ain't got time to waste here.
>>4675400not guaranteed he would have balls, but he he does, kicking them should be the first thing we should do.
>>4675397With hands like these, eye gouging will be hard.Looks like we’re going for the ol’ Nip Twist.
>>4675399>>4675400Good points. Better idea:>DICK TWIST
>>4675391Oh shits its King Koop->>4675392Oh shit its GaNORFeanLets see, belly too big, blocks dick kickMantits too fat, nipple twist ineffectiveEyes small but obvious weak pointSolution clearPOKE 'EM INNA EYE
>>4675405How is a very pointy metal edge not good for poking out eyes?>4675406Once again, we don't even know if that shit would work. Don't try to apply human stuff to aliens.
>>4675415By the law of narrative function, he is a big muscle macho man and we are a masked desperado of ambiguous sexual identity. Thanks to article 5 subsection c, if we were to grab him by the balls, he would squeal and squirm in a humorous fashion before we do end up forcing him to faint. Trust me, /tv/ said so.
>>4675428He might not even have balls, retard> ambiguous sexual identity.Lol what? All B1 Droids are Male (as far as their mind/personality goes). It's part of their programming.
>>4675438that means we can get modify ourselves to get female programming which means we can become Mimve's robo mommyImagine the possibilities
>>4675446Nah I'm just shitting around, Stud Bucket is perfect the way he is
>>4675446And suffer ego death? Sounds dumb. We're Stud Bucket, Mimve's Big Brother Aniki.
>>4675438Gamoreans are comic relief at best man, trust me, they have balls. Not to mention droids haven't got junk so by extension Stud Bucket is Studly, but still ambiguous.
>>4675460I mean, we're a Droid, we rely on programming that can be altered on a whim indefinitely. We could change as much as we want. We could make our personality be however we like.
>>4675392https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/StunMost Imperial blasters have a stun setting right? Just give him a good night zip and get out
>>4675460Ego Death = Your personality, your identity, basically you as a whole would be dead. Sure, we can 'change' ourselves, but it wouldn't really be us anymore, would it?
>QM wondering whether to write about a robot stabbing the eyes, pinching the nips, twisting the dick of a alien pig or all 3 at once.
>>4675485Why not all three? Grab his dick AND his nipple, then twist, then release the nipple and gouge at the eyes
>>4675519I don't wanna touch either of those things. Stabbing the eyes is good, but the other ones are gross. We'd have to clean our hands with industrial grade clorox to clean it off.
>>4675466If we got a stun setting time to use it
>>4675530Alright, let’s try this. Then poke eyes/twist dick/pinch nips, if we can’t stun him.
>>4675542>Kick him in the dick we don't want alien ball sweat on our hands
>>4675392Why not hook our fingers in his nose and TWIST
>>4675519we'd need extra arms, so not yet.
>>4675669>tfw the sole reason you welded extra limbs on was to give titty twisters to aliens with extra nipples
>>4675406TWIST HIS DICK
>>4675392Smash his eyes in. Not poking them, locking in our finger joints and going full force on our servos.
>>4675406DICK TWIST SUPPORT
>>4675814https://youtu.be/1E1VY4KOghI>The Anons right now
>>4676174Honestly I feel like people never twisted a dick before. You need both hands to get it far enough to hurt. Even then it's really not that bad. Better off just pulling the nuts. In any case it's fucking dumb and isn't nearly as debilitating as they seem to think it will be. Not only does he have adrenaline from being an ugly bas- uh pig man he's also drunk. Pain no work to good on drunk.Eye gouging is mint, though. Always a good decision.
>>4676190Yeah poke em in their eyes
>>4676190>>4676206Yeah, poke him like we're going to poke Naa'diss when we have the special upgrades to
>>4676238Nay. Stud Bucket is Mimve's Big Brother. We are not Habsburgs.
>>4676240No, we are her best friend. She herself says so.
>>4676250You don't fuck your best friend's sister. Unless they are asking you to continue the bloodline of course. But that wouldn't matter anyway unless rat ladies can get pregnant from oil.
>>4676250Yeah, but we're obviously like a big brother.Also, droids don't have any drive. Not B1 Droids, at least.

>>4676456It's a bar fight once a blaster comes out all blasters come out
>>4676363Yes B2s would be Muscels
>>4676456We dont have horns dummy
So, uh, how are we going to deal with AT-ATs, besides the obvious tripping methods? Which might be impractical for the droid army to pull off.
I think we should get Bucket an big polearm-wielding mecha, for FREEDOM distributing purposes
>>4676574Could try having droids with mag-clamps wait in ambush with explosive satchels. Have them lay in wait, clamber up the AT-AT's leg(s), set explosives in the joints and then detonate.
>>4676585Speaking of explosives, we could use those disguised bomber droids from The Clone Wars.
>>4676574Just have a vulture droid latch onto the legs and poke the joints until the leg loses function. EZ PZ give them a stabs there are no flaws to this plan.
"GHUURRRRNNK!"Oh phrik, HE'S ATTACKING! You do the only thing you think reasonable once you pinpoint a possible weakness!"YAAAH!"You jam 'em in the eye! The Gamorrean squeals and trashes, shambling backwards to take a mighty fall back into a table, splashing liquor and sending a reverberating force through the walls and floor!
Well, that was easy. He's screaming in ungodly pain as he clenches his... bleeding face? What, all you did was use one finger to poke his..... eye."Oh..... I am... so sorry."With a flick, you drop that... err, eye off... letting it fall into a cup as you wipe the blood on your poncho. Damn, that was a lot more than you intended.
Truthfully? You weren't really sorry.Quickly though, there isn't any time to waste. You shimmy against the walls and move around the corner, getting closer to the doors with your companions right behind you."Set blasters to stun! Take them down!""Copy!"Phew, looks like you reached the door just in time to avoid getting electrocuted by the Troopers as they storm in to stop the Cantina clash.From what you could tell, there was suddenly a lot more Stormtroopers outside the building in the street than before. Just act casual and you shouldn't get into any more trouble as you tread on out...
>>4676863Don’t worry, Gamorrean eyes grow back! (I think)
"Gaghhh, musta' been Twagi's doin' back there. He's a... stick-head, likes to rile folk up.""Stick head?""Yeah, he's on Death Sticks, the rumor goes. Or just plain crazy."Well, that was quite the scene. Feels better being out now as you standing around in the middle of the road with Dugok, Mimve and Naa'diss."So, now that we're all on board, I take it we're set?""As soon as I get my belongings, yeah. I live in the northern section of town. Oh, and keep the Credits by the way, if we're leaving, what am I gonna buy with those?" Dugok says, waving his hand dismissively at the bag Naa'diss carried. "Keep up for the opportune time.""Right. Stud Bucket." She addresses you, holding Mimve's hand tight. "I want to come too, I want to see just what it is you 'have in store' where you're going. And I suspect Mim'vess does too?""Yes, yes!""I knew it. Well, I'm going back home for the time being then to prepare Mim'vess and myself. I'll meet back up with you." Naa'diss informs you before promptly nodding and turning to walk off with Mimve, who waved back at you.Stepping forward, Dugok places his hand on your shoulder. "Right. I'll need till' midnight, it's the best time to leave, everyone will be asleep and I'll have my junk, and the authorities tipped off with an appeal. My mobile home is a HAVt-B6 Juggernaut.""A juggernaut...? You don't mean... like a Clone Turbo Tank, do you?!"Dugok shakes his head. "Nah, not one of those colossi. Mine's a small civilian grade one, it has modified treads for the snow and I live in it. It's parked outside town on the northern end... meet me there at midnight and I can drive us to wherever your Foundry is.""Sounds like a plan to me.""Hm. If you're not too busy, I might use a hand my way until then."Well, he needs his space to get himself completely ready, and there could be a few tasks he needs help with. Naa'diss and Mim'vess are going back home for the rest of daylight. You need to decide how you're going to spend your time until departing Sprawl.>What will you do?
>>4676903Go back with the awoos. I wanted to talk to Marjar'Hudool before we left and learn more about the Jedi things.
>>4676903Cant forget what hand we have a busted trigger finger on
>>4676903Before the girls leave, do they want to take their master with us? Do they need to buy rations? We dont know if we have much in the ways of food at the foundry. Perhaps we can buy some with Dugok.Speaking of Dugok, let's go with him. We might learn a thing or two.
>>4676903>Go with DugokQuick question, what are our goals for upgrading right now? I kinda want to make ourselves into a general grievous knock off but with firearms.
>>4676976Lets do it like Mayfelds gun arm
>>4676976I was thinking a fallout style sentry bot but with droidekas in place of those spherical wheels
>>4676976We could do both. Grievous had some blasters within some of his arms I think.
Why stop at four arms when we could get Vishnu pilled and have eight?
>>4677014That'd be pretty rad.
>>4677025Because there's a point where your ideas could drop off into the sea of ridiculousness.
>>4677035Does that guy... have lightsaber knees?
>>4677040Yes anon, that guy has lightsaber knees.Also he preys on children or something.
>>4677040Yes. How does he even wipe his own ass?
>>4677045He probably sucks their toes.Me personally, I think we could do with at most two sabers, but you cant go wrong with a blaster or two. We should also arm up with flashbangs. I'm not sure how protective clone Trooper tier helmets can be, but they cant protect against everything. Would be good to use if we have the misfortune to fight a jedi/Sith. Just detonate a concussion grenade on your body and you're all set.
>>4677045>horny posting about mimve.jpg
>>4677046You don't go to the b room wearing clothes you dummkopf. Well, unless you're a...
Wonder if the droid Huyang is still around
>>4676912Support, let’s go chat with space wizard
Looks like we're tied.
>>4676903I say we go with Dugok. The ayys can take care of themselves and with the master they don't have anything to worry about.
>>4676903>>4676976Support, might as well lend him a hand to keep him sweet since we're gonna be relying on him a lot in the future
>>4677157Switching to Dugok for tiebreaking and to get work done. I guess we can chat with Telekinesis Geezer later at the foundry.
Nodding back to Naa'diss and waving to Mim'vess, you turn and follow Dugok as he wades down the wide range of the town's center lane, fixing his pipe up with some liquid from a small metal box to smoke again."So, what do you need a hand a hand with? I'm no 631, but I'm sure I can help somehow.""Ewelll, let's just say the engine on my 'ole 'naut needs a little tinkering first, and the satellite on top is busted, can't reach the Holonet with that broke. And I might need a little help moving some special cargo. Oh, guess I could introduce you to Ceedee too.""See dee?""CD-507. My droid, predecessor model to the all-too famous Astromechs. She's a reliable little thing, even if she's not completely up to date.""Huh, alright.""Yeah. I'm sure you'll get along just fi-""Well, well, well! What have we here? Mmmm... Ah, you're.... Csiron Phaanell, my recent hire.""Guh-uh- ugh! M-Mo...""Oh, hu hu hu hu! What's the matter, Acklay got your tongue? Oh, I jest. But it is good to meet you, I didn't think I would so fast. Let me stress Csiron, your work will be invaluable in the maintenance department and you will be handsomely reward for your labor, we had a great need for one with utility skills such as you...." The strange man stopping you both says before glancing to you with an intrigued glare. "Mmm, and who might this be? I haven't seen you before. A new arrival to town? Perhaps a colonist, or some other type of wayfaring seeker?""Maybe. What's it to you?" You respond. Dugok looks like his heart just sank as his eyes bulge out from you saying that."Oh? You don't know, do you? Hah hah hah, that's fine. Csiron""M-My-My friend... this is the Sector governor.... M-M-M..."
"Moff! Hm hm hm, indeed, I am the Moff of the Dufilvian sector. My name is Dunsal Vlad Zarazum, charmed." He introduces himself. "Oh, apologies for my... interrupting, Csiron.""N-No problem, sir! None at all!"The man standing before you was, at the least you could say... flamboyant? Decorated with regal wear made of expensive, fine furs and boasting striking blue eyes, hair that jiggled like it was made out of the softest silk. He was flanked by multiple Imperial soldiery of the elite variety, clad as charcoal black warriors with an utmost aura of... death. They were certainly giving you the stares of seasoned killers, watching your every move."Forgive my rudeness, sir, I am simply wary of strangers. Is all." You say, calculating a response. Though, it looked... suspicious when the stranger was clearly tailed by this elite detail and dozens more Stormtroopers. Really suspicious."Ah, there's nothing wrong with that." He dispels that greeting. "You come off... a bounty hunter to me. I admit I look at you and see someone... enigmatic. It interests me highly. Not that I intend to come so forward... but I am always looking for the services of... 'good' Bounty Hunters for some jobs. I'll just drop that out there.""I will remember that, sir. What's the occasion for you gracing us today?" You try to strike up a casual conversation, never minding that Dugok was sweating bullets in this cold weather."I have come for an inspection of the town's drafted workers, on account of that, a few... mishaps have occurred in the construction zone for the Crondre City Palace on specific places workers from Sprawl here were assigned. I've only wanted to sort this out, ensure that these mistakes are really just mistakes. With no malice behind them." The Moff says. Seems like he's rooting out potential saboteurs today, to send a message maybe. Someone... might die today."I noticed as I approached that you and Dugok happened to come out of that Cantina. My officer informed me ANOTHER Cantina Clash happened. My men are dispersing it, make no worry. That you are a new face around these parts, I apologize profusely for you having witnessed that, on behalf of the whole sector administration. Really, I do. Businesses should not suffer blows to their reputation like this. Some people just don't have courtesy. It seems that the perpetrator... assuredly did not have any, a clear sign of disorder and deviance! A heinous violation of the Law's order.""I'll say. You'd think with how many soldiers are around here, we wouldn't have hooligans fooling around like that. I hope he gets a beefy fine for causing that fight.""Oh, you'd think! You'd think! I concur!" He motions with his finger, smiling with clear amusement before dropping it and looking towards the Cantina with disgust.
"Buuuut, a fine? Seems so... lenient. What's learned from the loss of fleeting, material lucre when it is so easy to get back? Nothing truly, at least, I don't think... In order to instill civility to the people and... ensure the peace is kept, it is the job of The Law... nay, the rightful duty of The Law, to pass down correct judgment on deviancy. Otherwise, the avenues to chaos open and unfold."Twirling his fingers, Moff Dunsal signals two of his Shadowtroopers. The black armored government thugs walk off towards the Cantina at his mark and he looks back at you and a very afraid Dugok."I want my people, like any reasonable and sensible Moff should, to feel safe, even in the farthest reaches of any planet. I want them to know, that no matter how remote they can be, the gleaming shield of Law and order will always be there to protect them. That is the sovereign duty of the Empire. Lest we be reduced to shambles of uncertainty, and incivility, like the Outer Rim.""What is your name, son?""Uhh, my nickname is Stud Bucket. Cause I've been told I'm quite tough... and look like a bucket?"Dugok audibly gulps."...Eh, I'll take. Stud Bucket... would you like me to demonstrate what is right? It will only take just a moment of your time.">What will you do?
Rolled 86 (1d100)>>4677260I ROLL TO SHOOT DUNSAL (Please don’t actually shoot him I don’t want to die by death trooper)
>>4677263Let's uh...just go along with it, i guess. And try to not look very suspicious.
>>4677263"I can't refuse a request from the Sector Governor in good conscience.">character development inbound
>>4677263“If it’s no problem for you, gladly!”We get to see these guys in action and analyse their tactics
>>4677263I know his type. Only tough when he thinks he has all the cards. Screw it, backing this >>4677266Also, either Dugok is an alias or his actual name is Csiron Phaanell. Either way that's something we need to address later.
>>4677268Csiron is his middle name which means Moff is a pedantic asshole
>>4677271Ah, never mind then. Yeah that only confirms my bias. How much you wanna bet he's gonna try to punch us and say MiGhT mAkEs RiGhT? Idiots going to blow our cover.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VnpeeIuohco&ab_channel=HerbertZihlmann
>>4677263Sir, far be it from me to keep you from your righteous duties. I get a better idea now of how important your job is and I'd hate to delay you any longer with my ugly mug. But, I do hope we can meet again to conduct some civilized business. Hopefully without another clash to ruin things. A good day to you. (We should offhandedly whisper loud enough to Dugok about how handsome the Moff is in person once we pass, so Dunsal can here.)
>>4677281This, he seems very very ego driven so let's play to that to keep things smooth as can be as we make it to our destination
Oh yeah you know what adding this >>4677281 to my previous backing here >>4677268
>>4677017Those are called mecanum wheels anon.
>>4677281I feel like he'll just insist that we come.
>>4677263>No thanks, Csirrion here owes me a new sensor relay...we ought to be moving now it's been a pleasure meeting you Moff."
>>4677267This. Whatever he has planned, it'll likely showcase to us how the Empire rules through fear, and then we'll be able to pinpoint that and Merx can exploit it.
>>4677340I mean we all know this particular choice doesn’t really matter he’s just gonna do the typical evil:“Oh no, I insist.”Then we get dragged over by gunpoint and you wonder why he doesn’t just shoot us already. But it’s the principle of choice and maybe he’ll remember our response 2 threads later or something so his dialogue changes slightly.
>>4677281This but say he's nice.It's bad to lie
>>4677263>Nah no need my good sir i understand what you mean with trying to prevent this place becoming another hive of scum but its a important thing to remember when punishing and judge to not punish civilians too much or there productivity and moral will sink low and one does want to cure the sickness and not merely the symptom as a man of your stature and sophistication would know
>>4677263Wait, moff is a title? I always thought the name of the guy in the movie was Moff Tarkin, and grand was something he forced his subordinates to say.
>>4677585Nah Grand Moff is a title, like Grand Admiral kinda, but in space.
>>4677263> “uh, the “easy to get back” doesn’t really apply to drunkards who fight in bars, but I suppose the Moff would know best”
>>4677266Seems like the most logical response
>>4677585Moff? More like Muff amirite?!
>>4677724Muff? More like Snuff amirite?!
What if he turns out to be really based though?
>>4677939Then he'll have to turn traitor to the Empire. But traitors aren't based. Guess he'll never be based then.
>>4677946could Moff be woke?
>>4678005Fucker ate my text. Trying again.>>4678005Same boat as being based. He wouldn't stay if he was woke, but woke people are too dumb to realize they are the bad guys.
>>4678015>fucked up the linkingYou damn retard. Do it right.
>>4677263Either we are about to be detained ors Twagi executed
>>4678053>"Am I being detained?" -Man being detained
>>4677401Just something diffrent like what options do we have?
"S-Sir! Gladly, if it won't hinder you! I can't refuse a request from the Moff in good conscience!"Dunsal smiles at that warmly. He turns and motions out to the tall buildings all around."You know, I have always believed that society is... beautiful." He begins. "Building a high society is much like sculpting a fine statue.""That's one way to put it. Personally, I'm glad we have society, if we didn't have it, we wouldn't have cities, and I think cities are nice.""Hm hm hmmm... Right you are, right you are." He giggled.The Moff frowns."But, there is always... a rogue element. Deviancy...." He scowls."De...viancy?""Yes. And deviants will inevitably taint the beauty we have built, and let it smolder to ruin through their corruption, their lack of morality, their... dirtiness. The Galactic Republic was weak and susceptible to the deviancy, spreading the taint further. But the Empire has rejected that note...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YPdu1hNY3NI
Moff Dunsal directs your attention to the front doors of the Cantina now. The two Shadowtroopers of his detail he sent were now coming back. They drug a man in their arms. It was a Zabrak, the one who kicked the bar riot off with his declaration. He looked pitiful, and mortified at what was happening even through his drug-fueled state, like the recognition of an Imperial trooper set off some alarm in his head to panic, and cry."Here... we have the fitting image of a deviant. A scoundrel-" He hisses. "-You! I know you. You've been on probation for many disturbances. State your name to my onlookers."The Zabrak vents as the Shadowtroopers hoist him him before the Moff. "M-My name is... Tuh.... Twagi...""Twagi, your eyes are bloodshot as your skin. Are you inebriated, again? Are you high? ....Have you been taking... drugs?""Y...Yes! Yesss! I've been taking drugs! I've been taking so many!" He cries out, almost falling down as the Shadowtroopers yank him back up again."....I heard he's on Death Sticks..." You pass out to the Moff.Moff Dunsal sighs. "And Death Sticks... are profoundly prohibited. Absolutely outlawed. Twagi, you've been breaking the law, constantly. Why do you disgrace the society around you like this, and dirty it?""I... I don't know...! I... I'm addicted! I...... I didn't mean to do it!""Pah.... You've ruined the business of an innocent man today. You couldn't have not meant to. The very moment you decided to pick up the drugs and allow that filth into your system, you meant to do it. You know you shouldn't have, you've been given every warning without needing to be told directly. And yet... you still elected to purchase the illegal substance, and partake. Tell everyone, do you work a job, Twagi?""...I did... hhhnnn... I was let off because I broke the hinges I was supposed to build...""Do you have any family?""...Not really on this planet...""Are you homeless?""....Yes....""Hmm. They see. They see you're good for nothing then, and you've wasted your chances. All of them. You don't obey the rule of Law, you are so careless, you're a danger to everyone else around. A real Deviant.""...."".....""And there is only one way to deal with deviancy."
"...Woah! Wait, wait, what are you...?!"
>>4678532Eh he deserved it
"To preserve the beauty of a society, we must filter the deviancy with prejudice.... You saw what the rank fool caused, discord. He had money, he willingly spent it unwisely. Had he been jailed? He would have waited to sow anarchy again. He was given warnings to stop, he ignored them. Not until the end had he ever had a gun placed to his skull. What I've done?"Moff Dunsal looks up at you, right in the optics with a straight face."That is right.""....Huhh..... Huhh.....""......"".....People like him, they have no courtesy. They pay limits no heed. Society and it's people are likewise always endangered by the unlawful, the deviant, you see. Everything we have built, and what it stands for, will be torn down to the last crumb. The Law's existence is to prevent that blackening."
"Look at this town! Look at it! This planet was a colony world, settled by hard men who risked their skin and more to forage and support it's growth! They knew order was the only thing keeping it's peace, and it's integrity! Look at this street! It is cluttered with filth and repugnant litter. The snow covers walkways. The windows are stained and some broken...." Dunsal suddenly shouts at the surrounding crowd of bystanders."How could you disgrace your ancestors like this? Waste away what they made in the past for you? How could you honestly stand there, wading through these conditions? How can you disobey The Law and let yourselves degrade like this...? How can you disregard the beauty in your environment and allow turmoil to breed?!" He asks to the frightened crowd before raising a fist. "Clean it up this instant!"The second he did that, you see the scared people stumble, and then scramble. People were now grabbing up as much littered trash as they could, moving to throw it away into dumpsters. They started grabbing whatever they could, or using their foots to clear paths of snow.One thing you pick out from the crowd that especially stands out among it all, is a Stormtrooper marching over with a waving item in hand. He gives it to a child and points to a flagpole that was vacant of any banner. The child was slow with their work, but after a moment, they soon had that flag flying. The flag of the Empire. The Moff loved that sight the most as he viewed it.
"The Law develops the order that stabilizes everything. We are pure by it's fold, and beautiful. The Empire that embodies The Law, and moderates through strength to fortify honesty and what's ethical. Detriments to the works of Law that keeps us safe from disorder and degeneracy, corruption and all that is wrong with the mortal condition... hence must be removed thus." Moff Dunsal says, turning back to you. "Or our streets would be full of hoodlums, our cities dirty, our existence uncivil... and ugly."The Moff tilts his head at you, giving you an eerie stare. What is this feeling coursing through your circuitry now...?....Is this... fear...?"People must be made to know there are consequences for defying the truth of Law which straightens us all out. Our system cannot work without a strong hand to guide the people. In order for the system to work, certain people must die. Death is the only fitting punishment, anything else... simply doesn't work, and instills no lesson of civility. People used to fear death as meeting their maker, and thus the fear of God was put into them for the judgment therein lies. Under the Empire, we have shattered that fear. Now, they have the fear of the Law put into them, and the consequences therein lies...""You agree with me, that is right. Do you not, Stud Bucket?"".....""....Go on. Speak your mind freely, and please tell... what you really think.">What will you do?
>>4678549The lion cannot protect himself from traps, and the fox cannot defend himself from wolves. One must therefore be a fox to recognize traps, and a lion to frighten wolves
>>4678549"...You could have interrogated him where he was getting said drugs and dealt with the plug and scooped up more filth, but I suppose it is better to get rid of him now if that's what you thought was best."PASSIVE AGGRESSIVE MODE GO!Also, it'd be funny if we forced this guy to shoot up on drugs at least once and watch him either descend into hypocrisy or have a mental breakdown. That or at least chain him up in the town square to see if he becomes a toy or a corpse.
>>4678549I was a part of something bigger once... Things were so simple back then, following protocol, listening to superiors, working hard... I can’t say I disliked it. Once it was destroyed I felt pain like I’ve never felt before, but now that I’m independent. I’ve seen so much, met so many new people, I see that it has it’s own merits.I think that although the law is the best way to live, it’s not the ONLY way to live. I’m proof of that. Even when my perfect world was destroyed, I adapted and survived!
>>4678549I knew Star Wars Griffith was based and redpilled.>>4678558Sounds a bit wise. His point was that disobedience would be met with death and nobody is exempt, even the least innocent and he just scared the shit out of everyone, seems like a hardcore Tarkin doctrine follower to me. I don't think anybody is going to want to buy Death Sticks any time soon in town.
>>4678558>"...You could have interrogated him where he was getting said drugs and dealt with the plug and scooped up more filth. You know treat the disease not the symptoms, pull the weed out by the roots, but I suppose it is better to get rid of him now if that's what you thought was best."also say this afterwards, no harm giving him some constructive criticism right?
Only update tonight unfortunately. Work got me too tired.
>>4678532Honestly had it coming
>>4678549>"A bit heavy handed but certainly effective. I can't really speak to the necessity not knowing his history, though you seemed to. An informed decision is a wise decision."Aaahhh what a fucking melodramatic nutter. I love it. Now holy fuck we need to get away from this guy before he decides masks should be outlawed and blasts us.
>>4678549Called it also this man is the gay version of that dude from FC3 "Do you know the definition of The Law"
>>4678588True but dying in a fight and getting EXECUTED have different impacts if it was a fight it's to be expected but executions hit different and this isn't a nameless character this is a rowdy druggie with a face we will definitely remember now not as a drunk that passed out but as a victim of a Zealot
>>4678549Acknowledge what he said but dont entirely answer him? Take a note from our general boss man and put a hand to your chin so it looks like you're really having a big brain moment. Bug brain moment equals maybe he thinks we're an intellectual and not at all a brainlet B1 droid.Quiet the moving speech Moff Dunsal. I may not have much personal experience with utilizing fear to ensure people follow the law, but I can tell your methods are effective. Humor me on this, but personally I think I would either leave this guy in a cell and leave it to his withdrawal to fix or kill him. That, or make a public execution announcement.>>4678590Support
>>4678588Pretty much. Where I’m from drug abuse puts you in jail for a while and you need to undergo rehab after. Dealers are all executed. Truth be told, I’m not strictly against the Moff’s ideology, but I’m also not a space Nazi or insane.Technically are goals aren’t too different, we want to create a totalitarian droid overlord empire where all organic needs are taken care of. The laws and protocols will be followed.
>>4678549"Well that looked pretty effective but how do you keep people obeying? you can't be everywhere always"
>>4678549>>4678590This. Holy fuck just tell him what he wants to hear and get the fuck away before he decides we're next up to get a blaster through the head.

>>4678558>>4678590An mix of these two seems best>Well, it might have been possible to interrogate him to know where he was getting said drugs...but, i can't really speak, not knowing the situation in this planet. Basically, try to 'agree' with him, but under the guise of being an bounty hunter speaking about effectiveness.
>>4678794thats why i suggested>think SLOWLY as he is giving you time and then give your completed answer like a recorded message to not fry your braini was thinking instead of thinking hard and saying what we think while thinking it and allowing our glitchy language to act up and showing in our language we can do like a old computer and load slow and say it flawlessly in one go >>4678794ah thanks i was thinking of that and i am trying to think of ways to go around it without overloading our brain or allowing our voice box to do the glitchy sounds from our brain >>4678558but yeah i like this and this >>4678590 and this >>4678642style

Mfw I see somebody steal a candy bar and commit theft
>inb4 QM pulls a reverse uno on us>Moff is a good guy acting the bad guyHMMMMMMMMMMM
>>4678855could be or could not be is that not scary? could be scouting us out so every answer could be wrong
>>4678855He's not wrong that lawlessness leads to bad shit, but the law must be reasonable and fair too. The Empire's law is tyranny. His method is too severe, a just law should also be a forgiving one. He creates obedience and fealty through fear by the threats he makes, but fear also conjures hate and vice which will lead to rebellion. He is in no way whatsoever a good man, he is a hardliner all for subjugation and clearly not mentally stable, the character sheet says he is a maniac even. Also, I'm pretty sure a good guy doesn't shoot people that can easily go into rehab over something so petty as a lesson to others and then goes on to say "I will take fear of god out of you and put in the fear of the empire instead".
>>4678867>character sheet??seems i missed something
>>4678867>>4678869ah the intro picture with the might be a maniac and the this stories bad guy but that only makes me question harder
>>4678867Sounds like a swell and not-at-all-maladjusted guy to be yep.
>>4678707>just tell him what he wants to hear and get the fuck away before he decides we're next up to get a blaster through the headThis
>>4678873He said that for the system to work, certain people must die. We have to kill him so the better system of our making can work.
>>4678813We're passing off as a bounty hunter, we're not supposed to be a "fellow intellectual"
>>4678882trying to curry favor with him and also actually try and get him to calm down i am still tryning to think of a way to present long term solutions that are more peaceful to him thats why i have not voted with what i wrote yet by linking it to the qms post
>>4678887my vote is kind of just only half finished it would be fun with you guys to talk about itand like what you think of my jurry rig solution for the brain doing it slow and then saying it after so our voice dont glitch out
>>4678887>trying to curry favor with himYou'll just be making him suspicious. I mean, this bounty hunter he's never heard of suddenly appears together with an important engineer, has an really weird, robotic voice, an weird name, and is completely covered?It's something suspicious.
>>4678891honestly i think its just mostly just me wanting to have a deep discussion atleast subconsciously and atleast alot of what i said was a bit of ass kissing with agreement with some suggestions to improve or atleast cull bad behavior from him that makes sense to him so he actually does it..... and i kind of want to talk with him about his sense of beauty and what makes a law so important to him >>4678891we can be a bounty hunter and also smart and i think he would like bounty hunters a bit due to it fitting with his ideals if a bounty hunter does not break any rules in the taking down of criminals
>>4678901>we can be a bounty hunter and also smart People who know about philosophy don't really tend to work in killing people. And even if it was believable, the fact that we're an unknown mercenary with political opinions makes us much more dangerous.
>>4678813We don't want to fumble the shit, which will happen if we try to do a big brain maneuver

"W-... Well, Mister M-Moff... I think you could have... interrogated him?""Interrogated him?""Well, yeah... to find out where he was getting those uh... Sticks from. A bit of a... heavy handed approach, b-but undoubtedly effective sir, make no mistake! I just uh... I think there might be... more opportunities to cleanse filth with.. if you look in the cracks and crevices, heh..."The Moff holds his wide-eyed smirk at you, that face of pure tyrannical lunacy burning itself into your memory chip. Then, he closes his eyes and breathes out."Hmmf! I appreciate your enthusiasm to speak honestly. Yes, you make a very valid point. I should expect no less of a sharp Bounty Hunter. Do rest assured though, the dealers of these icky substances will similarly... be brought to justice, in due time.""I'm positive they will...""Oh, they will. Nobody is exempt from the consequences. A dealer might provide and encourage the rises in drug abuse, but the users are all as much a part of the problem. Everyone one of them is a parasite to society all the same. And so, they pay all the same.... I am however always willing to give the people their chances. Unfortunately for Twagi... he dashed every single one. The town of Sprawl will learn from his example. It is not often I am free to visit these smaller polities, but I do intend to do so when I have more time.""Uhh... very noble of you, sir! I l-look forward to this system becoming much safer as a result of your hard work.""Doh, you flatter me. I am glad you feel safe in my administration, I want everyone to. The people will sleep well knowing that there are no murderers, thieves or stow aways so long as I stand my term. We cannot deal with every crime immediately, as though we were in Hyperspace, but I promise, they all will be dealt with, in the end. By the men in white." The Moff says, gesturing off to his Stormtroopers, who each stand to attention in unison."Now, I won't consume any more of your time, I imagine you have business to attend?""Y-Yes sir! Machinery and such." Dugok squeaks."Uh, yeah. I was just being shown the ropes by Csis ron here.""Mmm. Very well, I bid you adieu. Go in peace." The Moff says, bowing his head.The regal man raised his hand then, offering a shake politely. You were stunned for the second, not knowing what to do. What if he felt how... boxy your Droid shape was? Dugok was also paused, the Moff seemed unflinching, so the engineer raised his hand and shook the Moff's in place of you, to which the blond authority nodded with a smile. But, he didn't let his hand fall, he also wanted one from you.Reluctantly obliging him, you raise yours as well and shake the Moffs hand.He opened his eyes and stared down at your hand, holding onto it a second longer than Dugok. He lets go, paying no mind to whatever he must have been thinking...
Quickly leaving from the scene, you trail Dugok out and to the front gate of the town, facing North. Outside the wall, you see his home then. The HAVt-B6. A scaled down model of the HAVt series. It has no heavy laser weapons or rocket pods like the terrifying Turbo Tank the Clones used during the War did, to your relief. It has a bigger set of spotlights on the front cab, a crane arm and ventilation systems. In the place of wheels, it sports large treads for crunching through the snow with.Despite being so much smaller then it's related vehicles, it is still overwhelmingly huge to you, with a driver cab big enough for four people to sit in, and the rest of the interior as big as a long room over fourty nine feet long. The inside is cluttered with essentials for living, a fridge and a bunk bed. He is at least tasteful enough to hang up some decor, like advertisement signs for beer products, and he has a glowing neon fixing that says 'Open' over his kitchen segment. There is also a smaller room inside the interior cut off, bolted to the floor and ceiling, must be where he washes.Dugok is gassed as he rushes in with you and seals the bulkhead, going over and collapsing into a big chair. He grabs a towel and wipes his forehead."Oh mother of Bendu... I thought I was gonna have a HEART ATTACK back there... phew... phewww... oh Bendu.... that rat... bastard....""At least we know for sure you don't plan on considering joining the Empire...?"Dugok shoots you a glare. "Never... not in a million years.... I don't sign up with cold-blooded killers, I have some integrity. Now I know why the Empire makes the reward so good for it's men serving it... so they don't say no when the Empire tells them to shoot up a buncha' innocents....""Well, at least we'll be out of it."At least I'll be helping taking them down a peg..."Dugok catches his breath now and just leans back, mind still racing from the traumatizing murder he had to witness."I could use a drink..... CEEDEE!"
>>4680131>CEEDEE!"That's a cute name.
>>4680110could just comment that we got a mechanical arm after a bounty in the past.>>4680131Organic man might need some help calming down before we get to fixing things. Offer a shoulder rub? How hard could it be?>>4680138indeed.
"BRI-BI-BI-DOO-DE-DE-DMMMM!"At his word, a small Droid rolls in from behind the curtain separating the driver cubicle from the rest of the mobile home. It rolls on over to his kitchen and extracts something from a machine that automatically deposits a bottled beverage before strolling on back and handing it over."BI-PI-PI-DO-DO!""Thanks Ceedee. Oh, and meet our new guest, Stud Bucket, he's also a Droid. We'll be workin' with from now on.""WOOOO?"Oh boy, a fellow Droid, and she's a cute looking one by your standards too! Better say hello."Hello there. Nice to meet you. Er... but wait, Dugok, I thought you said you didn't like Droids?""I don't. I was forced to take her by an old job I had back on Eriadu once. She's proven herself preeety useful, so I let her be the one exception to my irrationality. Hey, maybe you'll be one too, who knows.""Ahh, I see."CD-507 'Ceedee' rolls closer and looks up over you curiously with her gleaming blue optic. She was painted pink, so that clearly meant she was a 'she', by organic standards at least but you'll take it. She then circled around, staring like a curious child."WOOOOOMMM-...- BRI-BI-BI-BEE-BOU-PEH."GREAT FORCE HOW CAN SHE SAY SOMETHING SO PROFOUND AND... AND... NAUGHTY?!"Uhhh! UHHH! You hearing this too?!"Dugok almost chokes as he stops drinking. "Oh, I never took the time to actually understand that Droid bloopin' they make, the specific codes and patterns and what not. I guess me and Ceedee just understand each other naturally."Oh great, he didn't know his Droid was basically a pervert. You understood full well what 'Droid speak' meant."WRIII-WOOOO!"Okay, she can't get away with that remark. Nobody calls you a WRIII-WOOOO and gets away with it.>What do you say back?
>>4680145If we do that Dugok X Bucket will definitely be shipped no just no

"Uh, y-yeahhh, y-you too.." You say, stepping back, cornered.You shouldn't have done that, you've given CD-507 initiative to press her uncomfortable advance! She seems to laugh as she gives out a rapid series of pitches, her eye blinking each time she did so."WRII-WOO WOO MMMM! DI-DI-PE!" She bleeps something utterly shocking before rolling one of her legs to bump and nudge you!"Seems like two are getting along. Huh, I need to start workin'."You couldn't just let her bully you like that! You needed to.... wait, you've got an idea.Reaching forward, you pat Ceedee on her head part."BR-BRIII?!" She beeps. Now it's her turn to be taken aback as she tenses up."I wish you had taller legs so I could say this to your face-" You start before leaning down to talk to the shorter utility Droid correctly. "-you BWOO-BI-BI-WOOP!"Ceedee suddenly exhausted steam from that, heating up, shaking in a dazed state as her optic ran wild in it's socket. You could tell that really got her flustered."Oop, you've made her upset or somethin', she only exhausts steam when she's mad."
"B-... BWEEEOOOP!""AH-ZZ-ZUZ-ZZHHH!"Ouch! She suddenly extended her manipulator and gave you a light shock! Well, at least you've found her weakness it seems!"Man, I don't know what you two're saying, but I think it's better I don't.""U-U-Uhhh yea-ahhhhhh-zz- robably for the bessss-st-t." You shake your hand to get the shock out as Ceedee rolls away, still steaming up, bouncing slightly from left to right."What model is she anyway? She does-zz-n't look like any Astromech I've seen.""I said she wadn't. She's the predecessor model, a T-3 Series Utility Droid. She basically does only a little less than an Astromech can. Slice, fly, the typical things. But, she don't just got thrusters like normal Astromechs do. That baby packs a flamethrower module from her time. It was locked when I got her, so I did a little jail breakin' and got fuel. Don't make her mad, she'll roast you alive. Heh heh..."Dugok throws his bottle into a bin after finishing, standing up and fixing his jumpsuit. "She dates back like.... four thousand years or something. Company on Eriadu gave em' to us as consolation for missing on some benefit we were promised. Most of the other crew just sold theirs straight away for a fortune.""Well, looks like you didn't have the heart to. Not that you didn't still make bank I guess.""Yeah, I don't know what I'd do without her, she can even drive the 'naut here. Anyway, I need to get my stuff done. I've got a broken Holonet satellite transceiver to fix, the engine needs a little pizazz, and I got something in town that needs to be moved here discreetly, which you might be able to pick up for me.""What you wanna do? I'm going to tackle the engine first.">What will you do?
>>4680351Fix the antenna for the holonetDO NOT GO INTO TOWN AGAIN
>>4680351We have emerged victorious from this crucible of bantz. Stud Bucket - 1 CD - 0. Hell yeah.Normally I'd say to just hop into town and yoink the package but Stud Bucket is somehow magnetic for attention. Despite the fact he is exceptionally good at smooth talking his way out of things, apparently. So we should probably>help fix the transceiver
>>4680351Help Dugok fix whatever he thinks we should, he's the expert here
>>4680343Now we know how to defeat her ara ara auraWait till she gets a load of us holding her manipulator handAlso, opinions on upgrading her?>>4680351If the package needs to be moved 'discreetly' there's honestly nobody better to do it than us. If anyone asks, we say we're returning the favor to Dugok is all. I wonder what he needs that's so important.
>>4680351We're not exactly an engineering whiz-bot, fetch quest is the best bet to be useful. Hopefully sigvald the imperial hasnt hung around, double hopefully we can recruit the mando with the promise of 1.6k creds
>>4680374What kind of upgrades, Jabbanon?
>>4680385A proper gat instead of a flamethrower, G. And a paint sprayer.
>>4680374Shut the fuck up anon, there's an angry one-eyed gamorrean back there, the Moff knows us, we've been seen in public. There is literally no sound reason you could name outside of immediately spawning a million commando droids that would be worth going back into town right now. We have a mission, we are seeing it through.
>>4680398>angry one-eyed gamorreanSomewhere in the galaxy this is a euphemism for a penis.And those are very valid points.
Next time greet her with Bah-weep-Graaaaagnah wheep ni ni bong >>4680385
>>4680385I want to get her new parts so her tech skills are as good as R2's. Maybe some new tools as well so she can do repairs as well. We can keep the flamethrower, but she needs a blaster attachment somehow, thats for sure. Maybe we could add other assassin droid parts too like darts and poison gas.We could also try giving her a new body like this, only a little more armored and maybe thicc too so she can be a true shortstack.>>4680398Everyone in the riot was apprehended and the Moff is busy looking for saboteurs, as long as we follow the rules we'll be fine. We just grab his shit and get out. He's supposed to be a slave so they might get suspicious if they see him again, the Moff thinks we're a bounty hunter.
>>4680410>Moff is busy looking for saboteursTwennie buckarinos says the guy we need to pick the package up from is a dissident.
>>4680411Must have missed the part where Dugok told Mimve and Naadiss to get lost rhe moment he saw them because he didn't want to associate with rebels.
>>4680414No one said rebels were the only dissidents.
>>4680414Must have missed the part where he name drops a well-known gang boss, we are not going back into town, end of discussion.
>>4680417Against the Empire everyone who dissents is a rebel.>>4680419So???? Mimve did too, that doesn't mean she's apart of the gang. Naa'Diss said "Rundo" was a dark jedi ala Ventress or Jerec. Dugok works in utility, he probably needs a part picked up is all.
>>4680423>Against the Empire everyone who dissents is a rebel.Yes yes and only Sith deal in absolutes, save it.
>>4680424I mean, I'm not wrong, you ever read Imperial material before? Fuckers call anyone they don't like a rebel.The man who delivered my pizza ten minutes later than he should have is a rebel.
>>4680423>>4680426Anon you're arguing in favor of heading into a town where there is a goddamn dark jedi, an angry fat pigman, an authoritarian totalitarian anti-xeno task force, and god knows how many other obstacles are in the way. Why do you insist on putting us at risk?
>>4680426But it doesn't matter what the Empire thinks in this instance. It matters what Dugok thinks and what he considers to be a Rebel. Because if he was going by the Imperial definition he wouldn't work with us because we'd fall into the category of rebels.
>>4680351>Fix the transceiverAlso,>Contact Merxelles, inform him of our encounter with the moff and ask him for intel on the creep.
>>4680431>it doesn't matter what the Empire thinks>It matters what Dugok thinksNigga we're already voting to fix his antenna and paying him to fix our shit along with a job offer, fuck what he thinks.
>>4680434My man if you don't pay attention to the damn context of the discussion I'm about to look upon you with pity and explain it to you condescendingly.
>>4680433Backing this too, Merxelles ought to know the more important things we do. In fact we ought to just update him on every important thing we d to ask him opinion moving forward. Not nessecerily follow his orders but just get his input, considering he has a super-computer brain.
>>4680437I don't care if you explain it to me in baby speak, it doesn't change the fact that you want us to go back into a dangerous town when we don't need to.
>>4680437Bruh, the motherfucking Moff is in the town. Going within fifty leagues is asking to be dismantled.
>>4680439You poor pathetic fool. You pinnacle of tomfoolery. You absolute zenith of ignorance. I voted not to go into town. He wants to go into town. I am trying to tell him that his extreme broadness in categorizing dissenting elements via the Imperial mindset is disingenuous. And that it is irregardless not applicable in this scenario.Read motherfucka.
>>4680430Don't forget we're a B1, we're aloof from stress, we probably wouldn't consider the danger at first. I also don't think we'd be in much danger in the first place, there's Stormtroopers everywhere keeping an eye on things. You're speaking doom here, it's not like we're in a tusken raider village.>>4680431See>>4675382He thought they were disassociating with the rebels when he saw them with us. He thinks we're our own party, we literally told him we represent a third party.
>>4680444>He thought they were disassociating with the rebels when he saw them with us. He thinks we're our own party, we literally told him we represent a third party.Yes, we are not Rebels. Which are not Gangers. Which are not rogue Jedi. Just because the Empire would categorize them all the same does not mean that Dugok does. Dugok does not want to work with Rebels does not mean he won't work with one of the many other parties not associated with Rebels.
Alright listen there's a clear schism between taking the package and going into town and NOT wanting to put ourselves in danger, so everyone who thinks going into town is a BAD idea, say so here, and those who think it's fine, also do so here.
>>4680446Well somehow I don't think he'd work with pirates either and he said he'll never work with the Empire after the Moff wen't bonkers. Whoever he's working with can't be bad is all I'm saying. He's an engineer.
>>4680448I say it's fine.We'd be dead already if things were as bad as you're entertaining here.
I like turtles
>>4680351We have more stuff to do now, but i have decided that i will now take every single possible opportunity to fluster the ara ara astromech
>>4680452>Whoever he's working with can't be bad is all I'm sayingBut anon, if even delivering a pizza ten minutes late makes you a rebel then surely a complete bonkers hardass like our generous Moff would consider just about anyone bad. This is sarcasmFrankly I don't know who the fuck he's working with. It could be he needs a package picked up from a literal milkman or maybe he needs parts for a turbolaser to strap onto his wicked truck. I don't know. And I'm not interested in going back to find out. I want to be next to Dugok in case some goons show up or something goes wrong so we can make sure that we don't have to try and do some wild prison break shit later.
>>4680454I like trains
>>4680456He has a T-3 mate, those things have balls so giant, one of them literally set the motherfucking Sith Emperor Vitiate who eats planets so hard he makes Nihilus look like a starving african child in comparison, on fucking fire. I think he'll be fine.Honestly, I just want to take risks because risks usually have reward and it might be something good, maybe even new recruits. We're looking to win the people over from the Empire.
>>4680459And R2 was a god amongst droids in his shenanigans. It comes down to the specific droid not the model. And sometimes risks are just risks. We can pick up the package later.But I need to sleep, so have a good one you crazy knucklehead. Twenty bucks says Mando shows up to capture Dugok
>>4680351Let's help fix the transceiver.>>4680448I think we should NOT go into town.
>>4680410Okay, so you're saying that this would be the optimal chassis to upgrade her to potentially? Well get a good look and enjoy your bone cause that last parts never gonna happen for real HAHAHAHAHAHAHA>>4680454>>4680458Based 'I like turtles' and 'I like trains' posters.
>>4680570Firethrower fuel tanks on the chest?
>>4680570It will be canon, in my heart.
"I can take a look at your dish. Besides, I should expand my skill-set and this might prove useful. I can't survive just knowing how to shoot, and talk.""Sure. The satellite dish is broken, particularly bad hail storm hit it hard last winter. The dish will need to be replaced wholesale, and luckily for you, I got the replacement part in the back there boxed up, so go on and grab it. It's plastoid reinforced with a duresteel resin, it should last longer than the last."Sure enough, there was a sizable box marked with technical specifications in the back, must have been where he kept all his junk. It did look kind of like a lost and found back there, piled up with a lot of stuff. The box was labeled as a 'Carbanti United Electronics' product."Now listen, you can use the hatch to get up on top of my 'naut." Dugok instructs, pressing a button on the wall to lower a stepping ladder from the roof. The hatches went right up on top of the hulking vehicle. It'd be difficult to get the box all the way up there though, but you were sure you could manage."Once you get up there, you'll need to replace the dish. Should be simple. I got a lotta tools around here, feel free to help yourself. Just unscrew, unfit, fit the new part, screw back up. Yeah? Then, after that's done, hit up my setup ova' there, the transceiver is in the equipment tower. It needs some rewiring and such, some stuff is unplugged. I'd do it myself, but it's quite hard to squeeze through nowadays." He pats his chest. "Alright, I'll leave you to it. I'm going to go fix the engine now."With that, Dugok is off, leaving you there with Ceedee staring at you from across the room before she puffs and rolls off into the cockpit.For posterity and curiosity's sake, you go on up the ladder and take a look at the broken dissshhhhhiiiiiit. That thing is wayyy bigger than you, and it looks really heavy. You were sure you're stronger than most organics by virtue of being metal, but even you had a limit... and this looked pretty challenging."Uhhh...! HAVE YOU REPLACED THIS BEFORE?!" You call out."ₙₒₚₑ."Oh great. He didn't even know what was to get into here. You didn't want to possibly... drop and break the new dish trying to haul it.

>>4680604Genuine question: Is romance even a thing for robots in star wars?Also, I thought up of a new droid template. Canister droids. Basically you throw them like a grenade, they sprout spider legs, run over to the enemy, and dispense their payload of gas. We could throw them in vents of enemy bases. Speaking of suffocating people to death, should we just not bother with oxygen scrubbers on our ships besides for a few set rooms until we get more support/manpower from the organics? Would make boarding actions harder and ships cheaper.

Rolled 93 (1d100)>>4681009Droids in Star Wars pretty much are sentient and capable of feelings yes. Droid owners are always instructed to wipe their Droid's memories nominally to prevent them gaining too much personality or independence, because the last time that got out of hand the Droid uprisings prior to IG-88's attempted one happened and and they all went full Terminator Cylons berserk and that was very bad for the galaxy. Honestly, Droid's have always been a controversial subject in the context of the universe, and the Clone Wars didn't help that, nor does the Empire's anti-droid policies and stances.But yeah, given that Droids can indeed grow complex personalities and become capable of feeling happiness or sadness, it isn't much of a stretch to think they could feel romantic love either considering that they can feel platonic love like Artoo and Three Pee Oh does for their friends. Also, it's worth noting that literal Fallout tier Synths exist(ed) in SW. Guri comes to mind.>>4681044QT-69 got promoted to the Death Trooper ranks recently and has complained about the armor pieces being even tighter than the last uniform's plastoid plates.>>4681072You do not command me mere plankton.

Theres one thingbothering me about starwars clones, I keep thinking there were other clones made like some of a few high ranking officers and high skilled people that were added into the clone army, but I can't find any source alluding to this. Perhaps someone else can shed light on this? I recall there was a admiral that served Darth Vader and he was valued enough to be cloned to fill officer ranks and stuff and a Mara Jade sort of redhead clones?Maybe I imagined it while high or tripping out, or I was just reading someone else's OC cannon and forgot.

>>4681572So we can upload her conscious into Multiple droids and create a Harem of QTs
>>4681572So she can wear moderately more comfortable leggings

Rolled 55 (1d100)>>4681597It appears op has been replaced by a Necron
>>4681597I wonder if they have Mac'N'Cheese in the Star Wars universe
"Hunnnhhh!"Hey, this thing might be heavy, but as long as you take it slow and steady, you'll win the pod race!"W-Well... this... isn't so..."
"hard after a- all- Ahhh! Noooo!"CRASH!
"ᵂʰᵃᵗ ʷᵃˢ ᵗʰᵃᵗˀ""....NOTHING TO WORRY OVER.""ᴬˡʳᶦᵍʰᵗ..."Poggle's beard, you have to be more careful than that next time! How are you supposed to learn well if you make mistakes like that? Your Droid brain's stress will distract you from being able to pick up and store valuable non-combat oriented skills like this thinking about the mistakes and worry of making them! Ahhh!You're probably going to forget whatever you learn along the way here once you get that box all the way back up...
Well, the dish is now on, just a matter of taking the old off off by unscrewing and unplugging it's connectors and sliding the... banged up new one on.Well, now for the last step. You have to fix the Transceiver's wires. Should be simple enough, so you head back down and approach the hardware tower at Dugok's computer setup.
And you spoke too soon.Good grief, this thing is a... a mess! There's broken, decayed old wires, ones jumping with sparkling electricity, some are mis-colored from the usual white and plugged into non-white sockets. Some are red and... does the color even mean anything?There's also a big block on the floor with some other bits, like chips and disk parts that look like they should be inserted back into the computing boxes where Holonet information was fed through series of... series. You didn't completely understand it yet.Dugok said you could use his tools. Wonder if he has replacement wires and fuses, maybe some tape to reattach most of these wires with. Looks neglected, must be because he doesn't get a lot of time.Time for another learning experience!....Or, you could be lazy and try to get Ceedee to do it for you.>Will you really try to fix it on your own?
>>4681645Why don't we work with CD? Our two hands are vastly more efficient than her singular manipulator for something like this. But she actually knows what she's doing. Probably. We could probably get it done three times as fast if we combined our efforts.I'm starting to worry about his prowess as an engineer with wiring this bad. Mismatched is fine but sparking, too? Yikes.
>>4681645>>4681653two droid heads are better than one. supportin'.
>>4681653Wrap some electrical tape on our hands for safety
>>4681645>>4681658This too, or better yet find some electric resistant gloves that fit. Failing that go with the tape on hands idea.
>>4681638is this the new one or the old one? your writing was a bit confusing?
>>4681638>>4681637>>4681628we need ceedees help to like straighten out stuff and more
I saw that, Level. I see all.
"Hey. Hey! Ceedee! Come quick!""BRIII?"At your call, Ceedee emerges from the cockpit and wheels herself down over to you fast, looking up curiously."BEE-BE-BE-RI-RI-DO.""I-... A what kind of call?" You're confused. "Look, I just need your help to get this fixed like Dugok asked.""WRI-WRI-PI-PI-DE.""What? You're still mad about that?! Really? Come on, it was hardly unjustified! Just help me get something on so I can handle this...."You scan around quickly over Dugok's assorted tools."Here, help me wrap my hands with this electrical wrap."
".....You honestly don't know what you expected."BEE-DEE-CE-DE-PI-BE-BOO."Huh, she's offering to plug the right wires in for you and replace the broken ones.Granted that you absorb the electricity in the way for her so she doesn't get short circuited.Now this... surely will work. But it presents a big problem in that sustained electrical damages will cause your body, to fail. And you can't have that if you don't know how soon your OOM upgrades are. It might not be wise to try and sacrifice some of this current chassis until then....>Will you really risk it?
>>4681689Yes, that's the new one.>>4681706Thirst posters cannot smite me, bullets and blades simply bounce off my skin. But all it takes is a SINGLE accidentally inverse bracket to ruin my day immeasurably.
>>4681713That is the droid equivalent of wearing two condoms holy shit. I guess CD ain't much of an electrician either. Just use our double-bagged hands to touch a pipe to the wires and the floor. The truck chassis will soak up that dastardly electricity. Just uh, make sure CD and we happen to be on a nice rug or rubber pad. >>4681714The power of formatting is undeniable and immutable.
Rolled 70 (1d100)>>4681713Lets ask Dugok his opinion.>>4681714>Thirst posters cannot smite meWe'll see about that.
>>4681713Not worth the risk.Okay. Let's retry this. Remove all the tape on one hand, and let's use less tape on the other? So we can at least flex and pick up wires. We can pull shit out, and she can tell us where to put them?>>4681715This is an interesting idea. Like trying to ground the electricity so it doesnt dry everything? Can our robot friend confirm this or not?
>>4681716No, we wont. Because if the QM gets cum smited, no more Star Wars quest.
Rolled 1 (1d100)>>4681716You'll not get me troll terrorist.
>>4681718>Like trying to ground the electricity so it doesnt dry everything?That was the idea. I figure since he has internal plumbing Dugok probably has copper piping around just in case. For the hot water system. Or just in general because copper pipes are pretty useful.>>4681720
>>4681720You were saying?
>>4681724>Congratulations thirst poster. You have finally smote the QM and razed the heavens. The quest will never update, again, now.
>>4681726Ah well. Shortstack CD upgrades will never come to pass and QT was soon after eaten by a snow rancor. Honri has killed their own dreams
>>4681715>>4681718Support for both. Maybe even back up our data on some hard drive beforehand in case this proves fatal.
Okay, there has to be some way to get around this now. You tell Ceedee to peel away some of the tape, but not all as you look around, contemplatively."Hmm... can't touch the electricity, cause I'm made of metal..."Metal... metal.... meta......[CALCULATING... CALCULATING... CALCULATING...][POSSIBILITY INDICATED]Metal! Of course, metal absorbs the electricity, the whole Juggernaut is made of metal. So all you got to do touch it to the interior. You figure you can do it with one of the handle bars on the roof above your head.[FLAW IDENTIFIED]"Hmmmmmmm......"But, if the electricity cycles through the metal plates, it might go back into the floor and hit you. Looking around, you spot something that might help mitigate that for you and Ceedee. A painting, it looked quite thick, and with a plastic frame and back. You take it off the wall and set it down to stand on, in the process tearing the paper and ruining the actual image.... Oh well, Dugok won't be needing it where he's headed anyway.With everything set, you and Ceedee get to work as you let her direct you. Despite being in a more serious working mood, she still constantly flirts with you throughout the whole time, but you can ignore it to follow the directions. Feels like you're listening to a Tactical Droid. As you work, you do get shocked a little, but you stifle it to get through, not taking most of the brunt of the electricity before the ruined wires are all replaced wholesale by new ones you grabbed along with fuses.You soon start putting the plugs in where they should go all on your own going off what Ceedee already told you thus far. You feel you learned a little in the ways of utility after all, but you could still stand to improve a lot more. Hopefully the OOM upgrades will give you greater capacity for that.With the job done, you decide to put your disguise back on and go see Dugok now that the Transceiver was repaired, but not before Ceedee hums and slaps you on the rear end with her manipulator. What was that for...?!
"Good news, Corellian. Your Holonet transceiver is fully fixed up.""Ehhh...." Dugok pulls himself out of the engine port to look down at you. "Really? I figured you'd done put the new dish on by now so you'd come see me for the next part. I had some new plugs. That thing was a hazard, but I work so long I couldn't get to it yet. Hope you turned the power off in the pit fore' you messed it with, shocks ain't nice for a Droid.".....You could have turned the power off this whole time in the driver control...? Why didn't you think of that in the first place....? Why didn't Ceedee tell you?!"...I took care of it." You say after letting that register."Oh, alright. Think you could do the last thing then? Gonna be stuck here a while with this, still need to replace the oil and reactor fuel, adjust the turbines and motors, calibrate the shocks and servos... lotta work, but I should be finished by nightfall.""I... uh.... really don't wanna go back into town... with that Moff guy there."Dugok casts a wary look back towards the town as he pulls a key out of his pocket."Yeah, don't blame you, but the thing I needed was special, see, and I didn't want the Imperials catching wind. They search the storage lockers at times.""Storage lockers?""Guy named Jiiran, he's a Filve, runs a storage unit for rent, east sector. Way early at the crack of dawn, some guy with a hood knocked on my door, bald fella'. Gave me this key and said I could have his unit's contents, which he told me was a 'special' kinda' starship engine and a locker. Imperials would confiscate that sucker on the go if they knew what it was. Usually wouldn't take an engine for a ship, I fly public. But if it's special, I'm interested. If it turns out to be junk, hey, free parts.""I don't know about that...""Look, it ain't hard. Go in, use this key, get that engine here. It'll be over in no time if you just leg it quickly. Anyone asks? Say it's a part for my tanker and you're just helpin', no way that wouldn't convince 'em. Just do it for me, please?""And if I don't?"Dugok narrows his eyes at you. "I guess I'll just be forced to leave it. I can't put this engine on hold, we might be late."He hoops the key he had down to you, and you catch it in your hand before it hits the snow. He exits the conversation right away to resume work as he wipes himself with a rag and crawls back into the engine shaft of the HAVt-B6. If he said his end would take a while, he was probably right, Mimve and Naa'diss did say he maintained pretty much everything else in Sprawl too. You also wondered about that, if he left with you, would he be shirking his duty to this town as well?Best to think about that later. There is a starship engine on the line, for a shuttle or other smaller craft potentially.... and you don't know if it truly is worth going back into town for with the Moff present.>What will you do?
>>4681868Hm...Actually, I think that going to the town WITHOUT Dugok would help our Alibi. If the last time Dugok is seen is leaving with a bounty hunter, then that'll raise suspicion on us.
>>4681868Embarassingly enough, the Vulture and Tri fighters are actually slower than the average TIE. Giving Merx that engine to study for bringing them up to date could be helpful. Speaking of Mimve and Naa'diss, we need to make sure they can get out of town safe as well, and see if Marjar will come too. Maybe pay them a visit and then grab the engine?
>>4681868>>4681892Well, shit, when you put it like that... fuck it, lets go into town and grab the thing, BUT! We need an exit strategy. Finding the thing is all well and good but how would we get it back safely to Dugok's place?
>>4681903Well, depends on what we're going to carry it in the first place.
>>4681868I don't like it, but we need every edge we can get. Let's head to town.
Rolled 13 (1d100).
Rolled 18 (1d100)>>4681868Get the engine and strap it to our back. We jump pack droid now.
>>4681868Actually DOES IT WORK? does it really?
Also sad news i had been sitting in my room the wholeday due to a kitten dying and not wanting to confront its corpse until now seems you cam feel despair 3 times in a row in one day over the samething
>>4682030Wrap it up, put it in a small container to be buried. Or call your local pet funeral service, they’ll help.Stay strong anon, these things happen sometimes. Focus on the rest of the kittens, they may be at risk too.
>>4682030Were the one where it gave birth in your hand? You cat fags are a whole nother breed
>>4681868>painting>stepping on itGOD FUCKING DAMMIT! Uh. So se know what the painting looks like? Maybe theres some SW tech that could duplicate the painting, or fix the damages I hope.Does Dugok have any idea just how big the engine is? He makes it sound like its carryable, but I have my doubles. On the chance it's too large and heavy for our chassis, does he have any tractors of some sort or know a place where we could rent one?
>>4682075Doesn't sound weird at all? Some hooded McBaldyMan shows up at ungodly hours and says "I've got a 'special' treat for you absolutely free". No warning alarms in his head? Either someone really appreciates all the work Dugok does around here or they're trying to dump something that they shouldn't have had in the first place. Or it's just an actual honest to goodness trap.
>>4681868>Just go back into town, if we meet the Moff, we can just say we lost a bet with Dugok and we need to pick something up. We will romance the shortstack tsundere, this is non-negotiable
>>4682430I must agree.As much, that is, as a droid can romance another droid. I guess you can have cute Wall-E and Eve type shenanigans. Might be best to not do it close to the others though, we're still an B1
>>4682436Also, Ceedee is like, the opposite of a tsundere. She's pretty forward with her flirting, she just gets flustered when you flirt back. What would that even be called? Deretsun? Tsunderedere?
>>4682439She's yandere at first, then tsundere when flirted back at.
>>4682430>We will romance the shortstack tsundere, this is non-negotiableCeedee is basically a horny poster in universe, I think we could do much better.
>>4682536Could also do worse.
>>4682536She's an lonely droid woman, of course she's going to be like that when an soldier droid literally named stud bucket comes.Also, Bucket thinks she's cute, so it's really the only viable option.
>>4682556Whatever you want.OH SICK FUCKIN BURN HELL YEAH WOOOOO
Rolled 47 (1d100)>>4681868FIX THE PAINTING!
>>4681868Go shoot a furry wild animal and bring it back to butcher and sell its fur.Make some creds and have a story to sell when not if, when we get ambushed by the Moff.
>>4682565Bucket is also creeped out by her and the slap on the ass she gave doesn't say anything good about what she'd like to do to us.>>4682569Okay well I want to go with Naa'diss then and make her less pessimistic. Nah really I'd rather wait a bit longer before we decide.>>4682574Just flip it around and hang it on the wall?
>>4682602>Bucket is also creeped out by herMore like, surprised by how much of a pervert she is. Also, the 'girl slaps dude ass' is an old-ass joke, it's literally just that. The only weird thing is if you think it means anything.
>>4682602>Okay well I want to go with Naa'diss then and make her less pessimistic>unironically proving my point by picking worst sentientThe oof is so colossal that it has a gravitational field all its own.
>>4682611I don't mind Na'diss, but i'm not trying to be retarded here, droids like droids
>>4682611Shes a cute jedi with responsibilities you shut up
>>4682611She's a nice girl but for my money, it's not something that can happen romanticallyFace it comrades, Stud Bucket gets the hot mature shortstack utility droid
>>4682616She is cute, but we're a droid. Maybe if we were a human protagonist, but this is a droid story.
>>4682647FRONT MOUNTED TACTICAL GRIP LANCE
>>4682650Droids don't develop attraction to non-droids, anon.
>>4682630Stud Bucket X Merx but only if Merx plants himself on top of Octuparra like some sort of artillery centaur.
>>4682654You can't say that as definite, anything is possible. I'm sure there are plenty of people in the galaxy who bought a droid just to have a robowife.
>>4682679We're a B1 though
>>4682697Who is independent and has thus far felt worry, a "funny feeling" from being hugged by Mimve, and true fear from the encounter with Dunsal Vlad 'the Impaler' Zarazum
>>4682697Don't worry. I'm sure we'll get a custom model designation after we get into the supreme upgrades. BY series? BZ series? Turbo-Stud-Series?
>>4682717Yeah, and the only one he's found to be cute is ceeedee

"What would I even move the engine on? I can't just drag it with my hands.""See that remote down there?" Dugok calls out from the engine shaft of the tundra Juggernaut.You look around. There is a table nearby in the snow near a chopped tree stump, it is made out of wood. There are bags around it, and a few metal boxes. There is indeed a remote upon it, which you grab."Press deh' red button."Pressing the button, you hear the churning of gears and watch as a red compartment on the Juggernaut's side open up and extends out a metal arm, which releases a trundler with a grav lift device keeping it afloat. Using that, you could easily tow whatever you needed to.Not needing further instruction, you take the trundler and march right back towards town, entering the first gate and passing two Troopers. This time, you head eastward, away from the checkpoints as you take more cramped secondary passages towards wherever this storage house you needed to get to was.The few Scout Troopers you see along the way give you some glares, but then again, they give everyone in town they see glares. You ignore it and keep trucking onward until you ask a Weequay women you see with some quilts for direction. You cross a street and enter the place you need to. The storage unit building has a little tunnel where you see a Filvian standing behind a window and a desk."Oui, you pick something up?""Er, yes. For a man named Dugok." You explain. You hold the key to the unit he gave you up and look at it. "I'm taking something from unit eleven."The Filvian scratches his chin and stares off at the unit. He looked very weird to you, what you'd describe as being a 'horse-monkey' or something, being ungulate."Fine, fine. Not gonna stop. Be careful though if I you. Think I heard something move around in unit...""Whaaat?"He shrugs at you.Wonderful, of course the unit you have to look inside 'had something moving around' in it.
>>4683025Crusaders and those who have cleansed themselves of horny betraying horny posters
Pulling up the metal sliding door to the storage unit, you flip on a light and look over the dusty interior. The contents are splayed out on the floor just as Dugok expected.There is a large thruster or engine here, the kind that might fit on a starfighter, or other smaller kind of craft. It looks really... advanced, the metal is gleaming and clean compared to all the other vehicular hardware you've seen thus far. The parts are real nice from here, but on the other side, you see the hints of what looks to be extensive damages, unfortunately.The locker is pretty big. You come over and push it a bit. It rumbles with shuffling items inside, but it doesn't look like there is a way to check it out. The thing is locked tight with an extra strong lock.Though..... maybe if you closed the unit door... you might be able to muffle blasting it off with your pistol. It might be safe to check it over and make sure there isn't anything in here that can move first before you take it out...>Will you attempt to break into the locker?
>>4683063Knock? Ser if its sapient
>>4683063Close the door and give a verbal warning for anything squatting here to show themselves or get blasted if we find them.
>>4683063Before we do anything, pace back and forth near the entrance to try and see if there is anything alive in here. After we check for anything moving we can look for a key to the locker. Barring that we could try to find something to wedge into the door or lock if it's an external one and try to pry it open. With the door closed at that point. Don't want to be too suspicious when everyone can see you.
>>4683063Close up the locker and lock it up. Go out and find a snow proof tarp we can use to cover everything we bring back. This gives us the excuse of hiding what we move from prying eyes, in addition to the excuse of protecting it from the snow and general coldness.Is the locker belong to the unit, or can we take it? If no other units come with lockers then we can just carefully put it on the stroller thing. Are we strong enough to move everything onto the grav lift?
>>4683063Come to think of it is it an digital/electrically operated lock? If it is we could probably just pop our arm off and press our shoulder socket against the lock and try to fry it with the electromagnetic joints we have. If it's just a old-school mechanical one though that wouldn't be helpful.
>>4683099Support, lets try this. Old school locks wouldn't really make sense in the mid rim at least, things shouldn't be as rustic or lower tech.
Firstly, you knock on the locker for a response. No give.Closing the unit's door for the second, you keep a hand on your blaster and stand firm."Alright, if there's anyone in here, you better show yourselves now and I might not blast you at first sight!".....Nothing.You look throughout the unit. There is a big plastic tarp that happens to be hanging from a nail on the wall. You search for a key in particular to the locker to try and uncover it's contents, but to no luck.Thinking the situation over a bit, you start to really get a better look at the locker. The lock isn't digital, but from what you can tell, it is magnetically operated with internal mechanisms that a touch pad controlled. Looks like one of those kinds that recognize specific fingerprints or DNA too. This is tricky... but, magnetically? Gives you an idea.Disengaging one of your arms and popping it off, you lean down and loosen your shirt to press your shoulder against the lock, letting your magnet touch and interfere with the others inside. You hear the internal bits scrambling at that until they pop. Seems like you're in.You begin to lift the locker's door up slowly, a loud snap/ resounding through the small room as some extra straps come loose inside... allowing you to see what the locker contains....!"H-Huh...!? What the...?!"
You hear the metal on the engine nearby shift. A pair of footsteps touches down behind you. In an instant, there is a long and deadly Vibro Dagger at your neck, a burly hand pressing it against you."Alright, I don't know who the hell you are and who you work for, but you're about to tell me in the next few seconds and tell me why I shouldn't dispose of you right here, and you're going to do it quick, mate.">What will you say?
>>4683956We literally heard something moving in there and thought they were trapped?
>>4683956>Before anything, if you are who I think you are, I'm going to take a shot in the dark here and say that I might owe you a solid for saving that little girl from a Stormtrooper while I was hiding in a dumpster. I got the keys off a corellian who said they got it from some cloaked fellow. Will you be wanting them back?
>>4683956Pal, the Filvian said they heard something shift inside this locker. I'm just making sure my completely legitimate order isn't being watched over by an inspection officer trying to bust someone for spice dealing.
>>4683956"the CIS and Im hungry"
>>4683956>Baldy cape man dropped off the keys in the middle of the morning. If it weren't you then someone is looking for you. Would that make me bait?
>>4683956>"Well, if you deactivate me, I can't return that favor I owe you."
