Re: Star Wars: Through the Never

Vague took a moment to process what she'd just revealed. The corners of his eyes pinched down as he tried to re-examine her, as if he'd missed something the first time around. If there was a tell he couldn't find it. Outwardly she appeared to be half his age, yet here she was declaring she'd been al...

Re: Star Wars: Through the Never

Vague had intended to return to play another hand or two of cards before ducking out of the casino for the night, but he reckoned he’d put on enough of a show at the tables for the staff tonight... and if what this odd and alluring beauty said was true that his arrival was being discussed in fervor,...

Re: Star Wars: Through the Never

Vague took a moment to glance away from the game of Sabaac he was playing in order to survey the casino's floor. He'd trimmed his facial hair into an audacious mustache, was wearing colored contacts, and had applied a spray to his skin to alter his complexion all to better embody his alias for this ...

Re: Star Wars: Through the Never

A swirl of Tabak smoke shifted its way upwards towards the ceiling of the darkened stateroom. The only light source activated was the screen of the secure holo-comm that Ansel was using. He’d retired a bit ago for the evening, having spent just enough time out on the floors of the liner to maintain ...

Re: Star Wars: Through the Never

Tsivoin remained as a server in the casino, while the other three went about the daily activities that might be expected of them as patrons of the liner.

Re: Star Wars: Through the Never

It looked like the security chief was just about finished questioning Nova. He needed to get back out on the casino floor and so did she. Fortunately, she had to head back out that way to exit the casino and get back to her room for a change of clothes. All she needed was an excuse to stick close to...

The Zabrak kept trying to remind himself that he’d slung drinks plenty back on Cantonica, but he was having a tough time figuring out how to pretend to do so. The fact that every fifth two-bit s...
