The Seswenna Job (Look here Underworld Scum!)

Okay. Quick note before I get into details -- this event? It's been in my head for the better part of two months and now that I have a clearer vision as to how this is going to go down it's about time I got some details out and into the open.

So!

The Seswenna Job
The Eriadu Heist

With the recent losses the Pirate Lord has sustained in his war with the "tattoed slavers", he's looking to recover. But unlike nations, he doesn't simply consolidate his army -- he expands it. And that's not something that can be done without considerable influence. To this end he's gotten in touch with several parties all of whom he has promised partnership. An investment with equal share in some big prize. With a collection of underworld resources, he and his associates are hungry for their score.

In recent weeks the Pirate Lord Kyras, was spotted making some odd transactions -- brokering agreements and enlisting aid, striking deals while making moves to secure certain supplies and preventing outside influence from interfering with his contacts.

All in preparation for something big.

The Seswenna Sector -- a crucial stop where both the Rimma Trade Route and Hydian Way meet, the planet Eriadu replaced Seswenna as the sector capital. It's one of the wealthiest worlds in the Outer Rim. During the war, the Empire seized this sector before they made their push into the Mid-rim. This is their target.

OOC
This event is to celebrate one simple fact -- it's a damn good time to be working in the underworld. I intend for this event to do three things.
  • To RP with the various underworld people out there, to get the factions of the underworld as involved as possible that fits the bill.
  • To give people's stories fuel to do the things they want to do in their other plots and push through the complications that might be bogging their characters down or to completely change things up.
  • Lastly; to have fun. Otherwise, what's the point?

Initially, this was supposed to be a mini-event that could be done in a single afternoon with 3-5 people. But after considerable time and thought I figured... it's supposed to be a big thing. So why not make it a big thing?

A lot of you guys who've spoken to me have said that this feels like an Ocean's 11 thing. That's very much true.


Logistics
In order to do this, I'll need constant contact with the people wanting in on this -- by now, the factions I've had Kyras contact have already been talked to; if you want to get involved, you can still do so but the window of joining is rapidly closing.

Before I kick this off, anyone who's part of the preparation, please set up your posts on the forums and confirm that your character's done them. I've got a list as to to what each person's doing;

  • Taelios' Genetech
    Filled Kyras' order. Confirmed! Read here.
    (Rancor bought from Sasmi during the first Emporium. Much thankies to him for that!)
  • Kyras' Pirates
    Tel'mari's surveillance -- detailed information about city/planetary response times using surveillance equipment with forged anomid security signatures. Also need surveillance of species present that they'd be expected to run into. Confirmed! Read here for proof.
    Samzun's homework -- researched what's needed to slice into all systems that they'll be running into using protocols of other parties. Confirmed!
  • Mallei'vei Enterprises
    "Custom order", paid for and expertise commissioned. Confirmed!
  • Tretarkii Syndicate
    Provided resources; additional freighters and professional mercenaries (sidejob to prove their skill) Confirmed! Read here for proof.

Moving along here's the list of people who I've contacted in the past along with the list of people involved:
  • Taelios
  • Void (Please contact me! Need to find a role for you! I has ideas but we need to talk!)
  • Oba'rion
  • Tel'mari
  • Samzun
  • Akashan
  • Broca
  • Beldarek, Tretarkii Syndicate
  • Silaas
  • Jenn'ara'aliur
  • Rykka


Ending/Conclusion
Now, there's going to be some serious repercussions from how this goes down. This is intended to be one of the biggest underworld stunts pulled since a bunch of smugglers made Mandalorians look like amateurs. Everyone has input as to how it'll go -- I'm open-ended like that. But at the end of the day it's about making a kick ass story. For everyone involved? Please tell me two things;
  • Your limits (SAFEWORD! :D), what you don't want to happen to your character. (e.g. "Not in the face! Poor blahblah is ugly as he is already!", "Please, no eye-gouging! I also want to keep privates in tact! But go ahead and take an arm!")
  • Where you want to end up. (e.g. "I want my character to fail. To get caught. Interrogated and tortured to the point that they end up on Hutta working the scraps.", "I want to end up with blahblah missing an eye, but replacing it on Nar Shaddaa because he can afford the extra organs. He buys his own pleasure barge and spends his nights drinking all the Vysint.")
If you do not tell me both of these things, I will assume that you don't want any death or permanent damage to your character and that you want to have your character get his/her/it's pay and go about their merry day. The purpose of needing to know is as I stated at the very top -- to push you through to where you want your character's story to go. I won't promise it'll go that way -- but I will do what I can to push you there. By the end of it? When I put up the post-event write-up and we all put up our aftermath details? You'll know where you're going.

To help with that. I will be taking notes. Everything you do will be taken into account. Maybe you dropped something, maybe you blundered with a security system and your face got caught on a camera, maybe our slicer failed to take the cameras offline in time and maybe everyone at the scene was compromised. Perhaps someone with a chip on their shoulder against a certain member of the group decided to wipe all traces of everyone's presence... but 'forgot' to scrub someone from the footage because they want said person to suffer. Got it? Good!

Execution
I've said this'll be a big thing and it will.  But after looking at what I intend to happen, there's A LOT that's involved and when you think about it -- in-character? Time's flowing really quickly.
So, this'll be a multi-phased series of mini-events. Unless it's extremely brief, each phase will be its own mini-event.

  • Briefing/Planning Completed!
    The leaders of associated parties have talked and Kyras revealed his plans. Oba'rion showed off the new toys that he'd been commissioned to work on.
  • Infiltration 1/Neutralization Next
    On the outskirts of Eriadu city is an orbital lift -- originally used by the elite and wealthy to land on Eriadu without having to go through the usually long wait times to dock at Eriadu city's spaceport. It's been revealed that the Imperial occupation has since made use of the orbital lift exclusively for Imperial interests. To gain a covert landing platform, they are to quietly neutralize the remaining Imperial presence. Non-lethal methods are preferred -- with discretion being paramount.

    The people who're going to be brought in for this phase are:
    • Kyras
    • Tel'mari
    • Samzun
    • Void
    • Rykka
    • Oba'rion (and Qune, to oversee post-infiltration)
  • Distraction
  • Infiltration 2/Heist (Happens same time as distraction)
  • Escape/Debriefing

I'll put up a short description of each as we do them and as the "preparation" is done. I'm thinking this'll be done over two weeks, spread it out to prevent burn-out (mostly for me! Also my timezone difference makes things annoying on top of curve balls people keep throwing me in real life).

Edit: took down Heist phase and made it together with Infiltration 2. Infiltration 1 now has details. 23/09

Updated! All are go!

We're good for the briefing/planning phase.

This phase will be precisely what the title says -- it's a briefing. Kyras has so far kept the details of the plan to himself. Now he's going to explain people's rolls.

I suggest this coming Saturday Night. Please tell me if this is or isn't ideal for you.

Ideally, I need the following people to show up on this night at the minimum:

Kyras
Taelios
Oba'rion
Beldarek (or an elected head)

This will also include specialist training -- it will be assumed everyone involved will receive this training. Please let me know before the date -- if I don't get the notices, we will reschedule

(I will update the execution part of this thread when I've type out rest of the details!)

I won't be able to make Saturday night, more than likely. I work until about three in the morning that day. However, Baldarek should be around, and if he isn't, try contacting Al'thea.

If it is tomorrow, I will try my best to make it, but I can't make any guarantees, although Al'thea should likely be able to make it if it is in the later evening. I'll let her know about this, the Tretarkii Syndicate will have someone present.

Alrighty, sent you a PM and hopefully you guys do stay. Understandably not all characters will get along and it was my hope that, should you feel it appropriate, someone tries to screw someone else over.

Execution has been updated! The next phase, Infiltration 1 will be held this coming Saturday -- roughly same time. (7PM server onwards)

As before, please contact me if you have an issue making it to that specific date and time. I don't want people to miss out so if anyone can't make it, we'll reschedule. Do be aware that one of the people for this phase can't guarantee anything during October so the sooner we can sort out when we can do this, the better! Hope to here from everybody again, I'll keep people updated. PMs sent to those people's accounts I know.
