The Story So Far

Recently taken over by the Empire, Arkoft is a former corporate world of pliant workers and flighty teenagers who dream of hitching a ride somewhere more exciting. The crew of the Longshot Hypothesis arrive on on the planet with the mission of disrupting the manufacture of blasters and munitions, posing as one of the many trader crews who supply the food and supplies the planet can't provide for its population.

Their base is the Rat and Blaster, run by Ander Bose who is sympathetic to the cause but unwilling to put himself in the firing line. While Kaia, Icky, and Zalkan head out to scout the facility, Re'ikn and Kelsi stay behind with the droid R5. The others return to find them gone, having left a message that something has spooked them badly enough for Re'ikn to get Kelsi - a Force user - out.

In the meantime Crann arrives at the Rat and Blaster to activate sleeper agent Nyx, who has been posing as security at the local plant. Using the information they've gathered between them, the crew plans to hit the facility during the maintenance shift when it's quietest.

Rules of the Table

Post Frequency I aim to update twice a week on Monday/Tuesday and Thursday/Friday so am asking for a posting commitment of twice a week. While I may post more often (for example if an individual player is talking to an NPC, or if everyone's been on) there's no expectation for players to do so.

Ettiquette Please don't post thoughts or actions for other people's characters without their permission. Metagaming (bringing OOC knowledge into IC actions) is frowned upon.

PVP Any PVP requires consent from all parties involved. It's up to the player being acted against to decide if they're going to let it stand, act it out IC, or make the other player roll for it.

Absences Please keep an eye on the absences thread, as I'll post there if I'm not going to be able to update the game (even if I don't get to it on the OOC). If you're not going to be able to post for a while, please let me know via the absences or OOC thread so I don't start wondering if you've ghosted.

Alerts They don't work! Additionally, if you get an alert and don't check the thread you won't get another one. Please keep an eye on the threads either by checking them manually every so often, or via the Watched Threads page (the latter is especially useful if you're in more than one game).

Any issues, please feel free to bring them up on the OOC thread, or DM me.
