What is going to happen in your plot?
Chet is starting out his career as an assassin/bounty hunter/general bad guy and needs to start getting some work. Having just arrived on Tatooine on advice of criminals on his home world of Cardia (see bio). After a small blip finding their contact - Chet is tasked to assassinate a pod racer that backed out on a deal with one of the Hutts to throw a race (think Bruce Willis in Pulp Fiction sort of thing). Obviously this needs to be done in a way that can't be tied to the specific Hutt, but makes enough of a statement that others won't try again. A medium sized regional pod race is happening within a few days time. Chet then has to set about gathering the necessary equipment for his assassination. Chet sets about causing some fireworks during the event itself, attempting to limit collateral damage, watching the events unfold via his remote. Chet returns to his contact to collect payment.

What other writers (and their characters) will be a part of this:
None necessarily, open to offers

Where are all the locations in which your plot will take place?
Tatooine

Please provide a basic in-character timeline of what you expect to happen. Include opposition type for each thread:

Not where I left you.. -
Self DM - Starting with the end of Chets Bio, the gang from his home world who employed him for his first assassination give him a contact they have used on Tatooine before who may be interested in Chets services. However tracking him down proves slightly harder than anticipated.

Making an Example
Self DM - Quadra (the Twi'lek contact) introduces Chet to Grinta the Hutts representative. The details of the hit (target is a human named Bail Mangan) are laid out, with the relevant fees (and Quadras cut) established.

Tools of the Trade
Self DM/Dice - With the details in place, Chet lays down plans - he needs to get hold of a relatively small amount of mouldable explosives and access to the pits. The explosive device Chet constructs has a temperature sensitive fuse - with a back up local RF detonator controlled via his remote.

Spanner in the Works
Staff DM (please): The time has come. Chet accesses the pits during the night preceding the race. The explosives are planted within each engine - the temperature fuse primed to trigger the device when the afterburners are used, raising the temperature of the engines - Bail is known for using his afterburners on the home strait, whether it is strictly necessary or not to entertain the crowds. Chets remote will be deployed just after the first bend to use the remote detonator as a fail safe.

What do you or your character hope to achieve with this plot? What is the "end-game?” Link any items you’re seeking if applicable.
End Game: Gain some influence with the Hutts on Tatooine and further assassination/bounty opportunities
Payment of 2000 credits (-10% finders fee)

Do you need any involvement of canon NPCs or faction leaders to be DMed by a staff member? If so, please detail who/what and for what purpose.
No.

Tagging @Loco to see if the tech moratorium is still relevant regarding weapons and if this is sufficient.

Also, this wasn't seen because it looks like you added the "Under Review" tag to it yourself, which indicates to mods to not touch it, since another person might be looking at it instead. Sorry for the wait.

Advanced tech is all on hold and shouldn't be awarded for plots or added to a character sheet until afyer we finish transitioning things.

No worries. Easy enough to not have that bit in. Otherwise ok.....?

With the exception of having staff DM the final thread, yes. Either use dice or a member DM if you want the randomness.

Also, keep in mind you won't be able to do threads solo without a DM, so grab someone else to participate in the plot with you.
