The Race through Roche
« on: 03/29/18, 01:41:02 AM »
0 Show voters

Pehn Qardaak, Captain of the Mon Cal freighter Dynamene and Augustus Jaade, Captain of the Gozanti Cruiser Jaded Dream have talked themselves into a race to settle once and for all - until next Season - who is the fastest Smuggler to sit the chair, and who can turn the most credits on a single run.

The race will take them from one end of the infamous Roche Asteroid Field to the other, hauling freight for the fastest delivery time at the greatest profit. There's only one or two obstacles... namely the legendary Verpine hives, their bleeding-edge technology, rogue Pirate elements, and the asteroid belt itself.

Word is spreading quickly, bets are being made, odds-makers are divided, and there may be a Crime Lord or two with a vested interest in one outcome or another. It's time to sit the chair, place your bets, dial in the comms, and make your choice.


Team Pehn

or


Team Jaade

I knew some of the Palace history, but not the bit about Jaade crashing that barge. That's good lore, right there.  :grin:

Out-of-character:

Event Date: Tuesday April 3, 2018
Start Time: Approx 8:00PM P.S.T.

@blingdenston and I will co-Gamemasters on this Event, which is being held in the begerencolony.org Chatroom.

We will each use the Lasers and Feelings ruleset to moderate challenges and outcomes. We will post our Ship Builds here in this thread for everyone to see.

Sign ups are mostly for the head count, however, please let blingdenston or myself know if you want to participate! Participation can include adding your own ship to the mix to help or hinder either Captain, or because you want to be added as a surprise Guest Star!

Other players are welcome to join the Event, and especially encouraged to make use of the Sliced comm channels so Adversaries and Allies can broadcast their encouragement or just to cast shade at the two spacers as they make their run.

In-game betting and side wagers is encouraged and expected!

Our goal is to keep the event to a roughly three-hour timeline, with some allowances for extra time. Knowing the scroll can get busy, we may need to ask Players to take their OOC comments to Whispers, etc, to keep the clutter down, and to ensure blingdenston and I don't miss any posts.

Please ask questions if you have them!

We'd love to see you there @Imazi, even if only to keep the betting hot and encourage that Scum and Villainy to part with their hard-earned credits.

Nulaa is certainly setting up bets on this race, for anyone who has underworld-ish connections. The odds currently favour Pehn!
Republic: Brinla Ruun|Dassalya Nasadee|Mihzarwi Taan|Nulaa Ulair|Tamminick Nasadee|Doz Jalth

@LVT, does that include no internet connection? We'll just be in BC.org Chatroom, you could observe even on a Mobile phone with WiFi?

No worries! She'll find out about it secondhand afterwards, and also get some more autoprints, probably!

While these are true words, I'm supposed to be at a party, which it would be kind of weird to go to if I was on my phone all night :grin:
