    I didn't realize she was a background NPC.

    Problem, of course, it that Shyar's way more likely to mention meeting a slicer to Gial then to Kikari...

    Doesn’t matter. Do what your character would do. And it’s just as well you didn’t realize it was a bg npc, more realistic responses.
    Also random I thought you scoured everything, or is that just old age catching up with you? :p

    I'm bad with names.

    Why I can remember fiddly obscure rules from massive tomes but not the names of people I see every day seems destined to remain one of those unanswered cosmic mysteries.

    Why would Shyar not tell Kikari about cute girls?

    Technically it'd be Zavi's commlink he's calling, not Shyar's...

    So what are we doing with the safe? I still say we should just shove it into the ship and have Gial crack it once we've finished the pickup :)

    You want to drag it through customs? At least twice? Without the combo or the paperwork? I sure don't.

    So we'll let Lusk know we have to head to Coruscant and to send a new leader quick. Tell Tweedle Dumb & Dumber to contact any other remaining Sarlaacs and get as many of them on board with new management as possible (there's the thug that got away, plus the goons that were guarding the travel agency, at the very least.)

    And Shyar's going to stop at a Zoccom boutique for a space hijab to cover her face.

    Technically once (we don't need to unload it on Coruscant, just leave it on the ship until we've gotten Gial on board). And Zavi may not have paperwork, but she has Mind Trick and no aversion to lying or cheating for personal gain...

    You'd have to unload it at some point. It's a perfectly good safe, after all.

    I guess it comes down to whether you think it's more likely we'll have trouble with the law or if the goons will break into it while we're gone. At least one of them seems scared of Zavi. I think it's safer where it is.

    Actually, I was more worried we wouldn't get to come back and loot it anytime soon if we left it behind. (Although local goons opening it in our absence was also on my mind.) And unloading the safe after Gial's cracked the lock for us isn't an issue, since it can pass customs easily once it's open...

    Hyperbolic do you not want to sell the pearl to Py Ken, the original end buyer? Just curious what the line of thinking is here.

    No, I'm just dumb. My brain parsed it as a roudabout way of asking about Anfopor.

    Ok this is wrapping up. Will get Shyar and Zavi over to Coruscant soon and we can get you two back in the game.

    My posting will probably be slow the next few weeks, due to my second job starting up right as my day job is getting really busy.

    No worries. I’m insanely busy these days too.

    Everyone:
    Think about what you want to do, next goals for your character, let me know and I will integrate into the next act of our little story.

    Well, Jenos met an untimely demise (), so I guess the only concrete goal Gial has is eventually reclaiming the asteroid base, but nothing short term (I mean, other than making credits, of course).

    Short term: Run that blackmail scheme on ex-governor Lam.

    Long term: Amass wealth and influence to destroy my enemies.

    For edification's sake, how were the Sith tracking Kikari?

    Oh.
    Spoiler
    Show
    They were communicating via comlink. One of them had the phase ability. Once they realized Kikari was steadily moving down, they used lifts to get ahead of her. The one with phase moved to get directly underneath kikari while the other tracked her with Sense Force to get her general location, and sense surroundings to see her exact location and the location of his ally. Then he relayed directions to the Sith who was phasing to help him get beneath her. If she managed to slip by them, they’d take a lift down, reset the phase ability, and try again. Eventually she’d phase right on top of one of the Sith and he would engage her.

    Kikari's plans haven't changed much. Long term, retire peacefully and reunite with Quest. Short-term, get the funds to do that.

    Man, I ended up forgetting about that. And it's half the reason Gial chose Coruscant. *Facepalm*

    *laughter* Zavi said she'd send a thought to Kikari before calling so they'd know it was her and Shyar contacting them, remember? 'I'm hungry' wasn't actually the intended message.

    She did, but the point was that she'd promised to send a thought - any thought - as an 'incoming call' notification. 'Hungry' may have been the actual thought she sent - it's breakfast time for her too, after all - but the message is 'pick up the comlink!'.
