STAR WARS: RETROSPECTION- Descent

Luon

The rusty old transport rips out of hyperspace with a lurch and descends on the planet Luon, a world on the edge of Republic space. From your limited knowedge of the world, Con, you know that it is not exactly the friendliest world in Republic space. It has a lot of problems with corruption, but nobody really makes any effort to scratch the surface of it. It is too far away for anyone to truley care about the issues of Luon.

Landing in the starport is a rough deal; you and the pilot are too concentrated on making it down onto Luon's surface without crashing. While damage to the transport was light, one of the bolts struck the starboard engine very firmly and penetrated the armor. The pilot pulls the emergency beacon and starport security, riding airspeeders, escorts you in.

Once down, the pilot breathes a sigh of relief.

"I'm heading back to Vono'k," he tells you. "This is your stop. I hope you find whatever it is you are looking for on Luon. Just be careful. It's a dangerous galaxy, Jedi."

Which leaves you free to begin your search for the Brothers and complete your mission...

-

As a direct continuation of 'Decay,' I will just remind you that it is 32 BBY, shortly after the events of The Phantom Menace. Con has been out of the universe for three years, having spent that time fighting the war on Vono'k.

Let us continue his tale...

Ok, I need to find the Luon Syndicate now. Well, I guess the first place to look, as usually, will be a space bar if there's one around?

That requires getting out of the starport first.

As you leave the ship, a Rodian comes wandering towards your transport.

"What's your business here, friend?" he asks.

"I am looking for acquaintances of mine. "


Could you tell me everything I know about this place? In particular who rules it. i.e. is it a Pirate world or is there a straight government trying to contain the luon syndicate?

Savoir-Faire roll... hmm, Con does not know a great deal about this planet, but he knows a little.

Luon is a Republic world, having joined within the past thousand years or so. Its government is headed by the democratically elected Cirdare of Luon. Being far out on the rim of civilized space, it maintains a small navy to handle pirate problems, but you do not recall hearing any major issues with the clans recently.

You are not sure about the Luon Syndicate. It exists and enjoys corruption.


"That so?" he says. "While you're off looking, I wouldn't mind making sure that nobody tampers with your ship, for a price. It's a dangerous part of town, you know?"

I thought my pilot took the ship back to Vono'k?

He hasn't left yet. Repairs are needed.

You can sense that this guy is just looking to make some quick cash by manipulating you...

"I do not intend to keep it. But you could help me...I am looking to contact the Luon Syndicate, you wouldn't know how to go about that, would you?"

The man tenses up.

"I wouldn't be sticking my nose where it shouldn't, stranger," he says. "And there is still the landing fee. Pay up."

"No! Now let me pass"...Con says staring at the man, with piercing eyes.

Trying to intimidate him.

Intimidation roll... 13!

He seems to get the picture that you are not someone to be trifled with, and backs off, grumbling.

Sorry for the longer delay, I was at my grandmothers to help her with her computer.


Now, I want to exit the starport and find a close spacer bar (I'm kinda unoriginal in my approach stick out tongue)

(Not a problem.)

It may be an unoriginal plan but it is not as if it does not work. A holographic map indicates that you need to pass through the starport to get to the nearest spacer bar, the Errant Mynock.

Passing through the starport involves passing through security. Is Con okay with that?

Hmm, this is a republican world, right? They wouldn't take my weapons, would they?

You don't think so... but a Jedi arriving on a Republic world is normally big news!

I don't mind, in fact I obviously want to get the attention of this syndicate anyways. I'll go through security.

The outside of the starport gives you your first example of Luonese architecture; it is very blocky and rigid. Everything is covered in reflective glass with drab concrete framing.

While the exterior is simple and clean, the interior has obviously fallen into disrepair. There are few people passing through; Luon has a large population but not many visitors, leading to the starport seeing much disuse. There are some work crews that seem to be repainting the walls in Republic colors, red and gray.

You come to a security checkpoint, the kind where you walk through the metal detector and allow your baggage to be examined.

I'm going to take a moment to ask what Con looks like at this point, after three years of war.

When you look at Con you'd first detect his green-grey bag he carries with a few of his belongings. Except for that only his large, light brown robe that is torn at multiple places is visible on the outside. It is stained from dirt and blood. He's wearing the hood that throws his face into a dark shadow. Under the hood, he has long, fuzzy, black hair going almost halfway down his back. Underneath the Jedi robe he wears a light soldiers suit in grey and brown colours, his lightsabre dangling from right side of his armor vest, while his gun is attached backwards from the left for easier drawability. His body is full of bruises and some minor scar from the many fights he went through in his years on Vono'k. He walks with a slight limp from the recent battle where he helped decide the war.

As he walks over to the security checkpoint he takes of his hood and takes a look at the security personnel, when he arrives at the detectors he opens his rope and hands his weapons to one of the officers and proceeds to walk through the detectors.

The officer at the security checkpoint is not at all amazed when you hand over a well-used blaster, but when you hand over the lightsaber... he calls for a stop in the process.

"How did you come about this?" he asks you, studying it. "It IS a lightsaber, is it not?"

"Yes", Con replies calmly, "I made it."
