DP2: The Saga Begins:

War thunders through the streets of Nar Shadaa as the Bounty Hunter's Guild sends waves of forces in a furious attempt to take key strongholds in the southern hemisphere of the moon. It is rumored that the Guild's leader, Ninja, is in hiding as he plots a means to seize control of the planet.

To the west of the moon, Srehtiw is also meeting with his most Senior advisers.

"Vigo, we are in control of Nar Shadaa's commercial centers in the North, the Equator, and down into the Southwest. The Guild's core area rests in the Southeast, and they have launched a four-pronged assault on our fortresses in the South. We do not believe our holdfasts will stand against the onslaught."

"And," Srehtiw queried in his grating, mechanical voice, "what of the Hutts? Their forces just vanished from those few areas they still occupied. Have they given up and evacuated?

"Vigo, we believe that the Hutts have sold their army to an off-world bidder. We do not know who that bidder is, but they appear to be in control of those 23,000 or so forces at this time. We can, however, confirm that neither Ninja nor Gen. Graham was the bidder. Our sources can verify that much."

"Find this bidder, or," Srehtiw met the eyes of his underling, "your life is forfeit."

Srehtiw then march out of the tactical room and through his compound to he private chamber. Bending down to pick up some charts, his sensors detected a nearly inaudible beeping sound. He reacted inhumanly fast, hurling himself to the ground as the explosive charge erupted. Despite his quickness, his servos were so badly charged he had to undergo repairs. While in the repair shop, another attempt on his life occurred when a masked assailant lunged at him with a knife, but the weapon was unable to penetrate his metallic armor. Realizing the futility of his attack, the would-be assassin fled before he could be captured by the Vigo's loyal guards.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

On Chandrila, the race for the Senate has taken many twists and turns. Both Gov. Geek and Mayor Romni have decided, to garner public support and to bolster their credibility on foreign policy, to launch a desperate bid to quell the fighting in Nar Shadaa. They are jointly leading a panel seeking to broker a treaty between the warring factions, unfortunately, neither side seems open to negotiate.

Both have also taken public stances on gambling policy: Pots supports its legalization, and Bev does not, leading to a huge shift in the popularity of each candidate.

Bev, now closing the gap on Pots, gave a triumphant rally at the heart of the planetary capital.

"Dear friends, we are moving in the right direction for Chandrila! We will keep this planet a place of peace; of prosperity; of bucolic beauty; of a newly industrialized, green economy; of justice; and of honesty! We will not debase ourselves with the moral abomination that is gambling! We will not grovel at the feet of beings like thett or other such avaricious pigs! We will move forward together--as one planet united by our unshakable moral values and our commitment to this planet's collective industrial, social, and cultural growth! We are One People, We are One Chandrila, We are One Party: We are the Industrialists!" As Bev's voice cascaded into a passionate crescendo, the crowd went wild with applause. Bev stepped back behind the podium, basking in her achievements.

Together, she and Antidoter made their way to a small gazebo where refreshments were being offered. Antidoter, after collecting his drink, left to rejoin the celebration and to listen to Data's speech. Bev remind inside to avoid the heat. Suddenly, a bullet flew in from the window and embedded itself in the wood floor. Shrieking, Bev dived under the drinks table for cover, just in time to save herself from a second bullet, which landed where she had been sitting not seconds earlier. Antidoter, hearing her scream, returned, just in time to scare off a figure, nimbly running across a field away from the scene.

At a competing rally in his hometown, Pots was giving his own speech. His rally had a much more defensive tenor to it. He spoke briefly and ineloquently as the hot noon sun pressed down against a silent, deadpan crowd. Nearby, thett, who had come to the planet to discuss building plans for a potential new casino, was getting into her hover-limousine. As she closed the door, the vehicle shook violently. Her driver slammed on the gas, and she looked out the window to see the debris the rocket blast that had nearly taken her life. Sirens could be heard wailing as she fled , and just as she began to feel safe, another blast exploded in front of them, killing her driver, and jostling her violently in her seat. Not seconds later, police cars surrounded her, and safely escorted her away, though she remained rattled for a few days thereafter.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Meanwhile, on Coruscant, the Jedi High Council has convened. They had been made aware of some disturbing news.

"Masters, our agents can confirm that the Jedi and the padawan who died on Corellia were killed by a lightsaber. A witness noted that there was only one foe, and that this individual was using a red lightsaber. It is probable that the Sith have returned."

"That is not our only problem, unfortunately. We have learned that the leader of the Black Sun has warned the Chancellor that if Gen. Graham attacks his Vigo on Nar Shadaa, the Black Sun will go to war with the Republic. If this happens, it will create an atmosphere of chaos in which the Sith could thrive."

"What will the Chancellor do?"

"He insists that Gen. Graham carry out his order. The Chancellor believes that he cannot appear to be taking orders from 'a gang of thugs.'"

"Will war ensue?"

"It's possible...no, more than that: it's likely."

NP2 has now begun...!

Just for ease of reference, here is the list of NP actions open to you:

Hire a Spy: For 250 credits you may ask me a question (not about anyone's abilities or whether or not they are Jedi/Sith) and I will answer it. It must be a yes or no question.
Disguise: Disguise yourself in another ability...basically, pick an ability that is not exclusive to Jedi, Sith, or Force-users (unless you are one) and you can have it for the NP. Cost: 3,000 credits
Hire a Smuggler: Hire a smuggler to carry a cargo for you. Earn 225 credits for every 200 credits you pay the smuggler. You can only do this once every 3 NPs.
Hide - go into hiding for a NP. This makes you invulnerable to attacks from non-force users. You can only hide once every 5 NP
Hire Assassin - An assassin can reach any target, anywhere, at any time. He costs 800 to hire for one NP, but will not betray you.
Hire Bounty Hunter - A Bounty Hunter can reach any target, anywhere, at any time. He costs 500 to hire for one job, and will not betray you. He will kidnap one target for you, and will hold them for up to 4 NP. To kidnap someone, you must roll a 16-20.
Hire Mercenaries - Mercenaries can reach any target, anywhere, at any time. It costs 200 to hire them for 1 NP, but there is a 50% chance that they will simply take your money and not complete the job. You must roll an even number first for them to perform their job.
Imprison - expose a Smuggler, Crime Lord, or Unknown Assassin and force them to serve 2 NP in jail. Everyone will know who that player is.
Protect - if contacted by an ally in need, you may attempt to help them. You must role a 16-20 to save their life. You may not proactively protect people; only when you are contacted by someone who knows they are under threat can you protect them.
Kill - you may also kill players yourselves; no need to hire it out
Military Assault - you can only do this if you have an army (one which I have confirmed exists). See my earlier PM for more info.
Fundraise - Only for politicians. See my earlier PM for more info.

Remember: for most of you, using your ability also counts as a NP action.

MAYOR BEVERLEE ROMNI MAKES THE COVER OF GALACTIC FORBES

CHANDRILA--Beverlee Romni looks out the windows of her sun room, past the swimming pool and guest cottage, to the wide backyard where her two pet people whose names she could not think of at the moment, were playing with their pet womp rat, Brian. At a time when Citizens of the Republic everywhere are sharing the struggle of a once-in-a-generation recession, Beverlee can't help but wonder how she and her family fell through the cracks.

"It's just not fair," said the 29-year-old Mayor and granddaughter of Baron Serenno. "Everyone is worrying about an uncertain future and coming together. I just sit here and get ignored."

Staring out at the ornate garden where workers were installing a large marble fountain, Romni sighed and added, "It's like I don't even exist."

According to the multimillionaire, the past 18 months have been incredibly difficult to endure, as she has watched helplessly as her enormous fortune easily withstood the market freefall. Romni claims to have been "completely left out" of one of the Republic's most significant cultural moments.

"And now, I made the cover of Galactic Forbes. The recession will be over before I get to be a part of it. Everyone else is scrimping, and saving, and living paycheck to paycheck. I have been left behind in this economy."

When asked about these comments, a spokeswoman for the Romni for Senate campaign seemed shocked, and emphatically begged reporters to never speak to Beverlee Romni without an advisor nearby ever again.
