Maxims Tionson is a Jedi Knight who has spent a lot of time out in the Galaxy amongst it's peoples and had spent some time on the Wookiee homeworld of Kashyyyk. During his time there, Max has uncovered evidence that slavers are using Trandoshans to capture entire Wookiee villages, paying off the hired Trandoshans with the chance to hunt the strongest of the villagers without restriction. Recognizing that the slavers themselves could be repelled by the Wookiees alone if not for the Trandoshan support, Max had come up with a plan to instead convince the Trandoshans to stop working with the slavers to leave their operation vulnerable.




1) Building up a Score - A local governor of one of the cities of Trandosha is holding a hunting event that all are encouraged to join. The contest is simply the duo to return to the governor with the horn of an imported bull rancor will be declared the victors and the Scorekeeper shall reward them with many points. The twist here is that you don't need to be the one to kill the bull rancor, just the one to bring it's horn back which means other teams are actively encouraged to defeat each other to obtain the prize, robbing the defeated of their points as well. It is a game that often creates many life-long rivalries and quests for revenge but it is one the Jedi Order must win in order to be viewed as having a high enough score to speak to the highest levels of government amongst the Trandoshans as something approaching equals.

2) Break the Prideful - The slavers are a mixture of species but their main enforcer outside of the Trandoshan muscle is a Zygerrian bounty hunter of some renown, someone who is known to have many Points after half a lifetime of hunting Wookiees and other sentients for sport. He is the most respected of the slavers and the one the Trandoshans made the agreement with; he needs to be defeated and captured, something that will reduce his Points to zero. To really shake the Trandoshan confidence in the bounty hunter, make sure to use only stun weapons so as to make the hunter seem weak in the eyes of the lizard-people.

3) New Prey - Trandoshans don't have much in the way of traditional government but they do keep Score meticulously and those with the highest score have their opinions treated almost as law in some cases. The Trandoshan hunter with currently the highest Score of their people needs to be guided to see other things as worthy of hunting aside from Wookiees - the Jedi Order has located a Zeffo temple, a small outpost at most really, that has a trio of Tomb Guardians protecting it. Take the Trandoshan hunter to face them to highlight that there are prizes worth far more than Wookiee pelts out there in the Galaxy. This should shift public opinion towards finding new and exciting prey rather than the 'old enemy' that are the Wookiees.

4) Opposition is Expected - The ideas and options given are all well and good but the Trandoshan people believe in strength above logic. Having gained points and motivated some of the population to seek out new prey rather than Wookiees, the actual severing of services between the slavers and the Trandoshans will be decided in mortal combat. A duo from the Jedi Order must defeat a pair of Elders who are in support of the slaving operations; they are skilled fighters even though they have passed the age that they can regenerate limbs at. They must be defeated in combat for their ideals to equally be "defeated" - traditionally this is a fight to the death but the Jedi Order will stand by whatever ending the pair of Jedi can bring.

Wanted to just have some missions/thread ideas be out there. If anybody wants to pursue this story idea then let me know below with your character info and all the usual good stuff. These are thread ideas and are not just missions to complete. They might turn into pages and pages of a single thread (especially if people are having fun) or inspire multiple threads. - Copy and Pasted from Dara's mission ideas

Sounds like fun, and @Izel Thral could go for more temple destruction. Sign me up for either thread 3 or 1.

This looks interesting. I volunteer @Nykoria Tallis for any threads where there's room. Here's the preferred order of threads, and the reasoning why she'd be useful:
  • #2 Break the Prideful, or Knight-Knight, Kitty Cat!: Kori has a stun blaster, and used to practice with a stun baton before building her saber. Since her saber is dual-bladed, she could also potentially use an electrostaff for this one.

  • #1 Building up a Score: It just seems like a fun thread with room for some mischievous "snatch the prize with the Force".

  • #3 New Prey: Kori has some recent experience with Tomb Guardians. But then again, so does @Nara Allam (@Charndley), and probably many others at this point. Since it's a Zeffo Temple again, @BD 9 (@Lavi) might be interested too. Then again, if you're tired of Zeffo stuff, Kori would be glad to have Beedee come along for any thread that piques your interest. ;-)

  • #4 Opposition is Expected: This is the one I have the fewest number of ideas for, but Kori will be happy to help out with, if there are no takers.

P.S. I also happen to have the concept of an NPC tied to Kashyyyk who could get a cameo in "New Prey" or some other threads outside this story arc.

If @BD 9 gets into another Zeffo Temple, he'd be itching to find hidden treasures again. If it takes some navigation to find all of the Tomb Guardians, Beedee could definitely help.

Okay, so.
I am so on board for this. @Indy Sati for Opposition is Expected, and New Prey.
You're in both!

Sounds like fun, and @Izel Thral could go for more temple destruction. Sign me up for either thread 3 or 1.
You're in both too!

You're in 2 and 1 - also thank you for the NPC, I'm sure we can fit them in somewhere!

You're in - jab the temple with sparky things!

We're all full up and ready to go gang - tag me here with the thread starts when you get them up!

Saw this only now - and see they're all full. But I'd be delighted to be first reserve for any/all threads :)

@Nefieslab, I tried to channel the dice, mistakes were made.
It looks like there might be room for more people and another thread yet, if Max messes up. ;)
P.S. On the other hand, my dice rolls always lead to fun stuff lately.
Well now :P

Catbert roll dice your turn to see if you can rouse yourself

Corbeau, you are more than welcome to arrive as back up!
