Once Upon a Time in the Outer Rim

Episode I: Last Skiff to Mos Vaada



So this is an interest check for the first chapter of an episodic set of play-by-post RP's set in the persistent world. Each episode will be set in the Outer Rim and cover the exploits of the bounty hunters, smugglers, and scoundrels you might find out there.

Episode I: Last Skiff to Mos Vaada is the story of a a few bounty hunters and mercenaries working a job on Tatooine. Local Hutt kingpin of Mos Vaada, Doga the Prospector, is overseeing a new mining operation deep in the northwestern stretches of the Western Dune Sea. Mos Vaada, once barely worth noting with a pinprick on a map, is now a rapidly growing boom town. Though once self-sustaining, Mos Vaada's population has outgrown its ability to sustain itself on its own, and relies on shipments of food and water from Anchorhead to get by.

With water running low and a powerful sandstorm on its way, the people of Mos Vaada are depending on a hover train laden with water to help them weather the storm. Czerka Corporation, however, has other designs. Czerka's mining interests are the most expansive in the galaxy, and its directors are no fans of Doga the Prospector and his operation encroaching on their turf. Where the law and negotiations have failed, Czerka now turns to force to settle the score with Doga, organizing a crew of saboteurs to hijack and destroy the water shipment before it reaches the town with the goal of extorting the Hutt to hand over his mining operation to the corporation.




Basically, it's up to our protagonists to save the people of Mos Vaada from dying of dehydration by protecting the hover train during its journey. Or, alternatively, it's up to our protagonists to destroy the hover train and force Doga the Prospector to give in to Czerka's demands. Maybe both, who knows.

Sign me up.

If I can't think of anything more fun, I'll try to slam as many references to the Man with No Name as possible in a character.

Temporary/Supplemental characters or whatever you'd call them are welcome, by the by. Personally, I'm going to be playing a former PDF soldier from Corsin who turned to mercenary work after the war.

I am willing to submit Melech's many, many, Many explosive devices (both existing and yet to be made) to the purpose of blowing up whatever needs blowing up.
