Amy

"At a guess, Kar-Anna. She doesn't like to be kidnapped." Amy said dryly. "I'll be careful. Alone, Darth's are dangerous critters. This is her den, we're doubly not at an advantage here."

Alma nodded in agreement. "We're in a den of Houndoom and Houndour."

Peekaboo sniffed the air and sneezed. "And they are all hungry."

Rand offered an arm to Little Knife and acts as her escort. He generally tries to be badass while remaining completely out of his depth. He only grew tenser to hear that a dark force user of such skill as to earn the title 'Darth'- something was about but not visible.

"Okay, what's our play here? They've got crystals, we don't want them to have crystals. We're basically at an arm's sale here. We can't really afford to buy them. We can disrupt the proceedings but that'll just turn this whole group against us. I can record the faces and we can get them to our bosses. Any other ideas?"

Amy

"We need to find Kar-Anna." the girl said tensely. "I don't see any sign of her here." she told them mentally. "I honestly don't think they are the source of the crystals, otherwise they wouldn't go to such trouble to steal ours." she told Rand out loud. "Which means we can deal with them." she looked speculatively at the dancers and the red Darth. "They're also aware of us and listening in I bet."

Kar'Anna Maraneth
Condition: Normal (?)
HP: 1

"If I had told you to come down here, would you have run?" Kar'Anna's hushed tone does nothing to hide the sarcasm. "I told you to run."

The Dark Elf blend rather well with the other unsavory types down here, and seems to come out of nowhere.

"Machiko Noguchi?" She raises an eyebrow at your companion, Small Knife. "Neat. So long as you didn't bring the bugs. I hate bugs.

"Listen, I need to blend. They are listening to you."
She continues to make small talk, but addresses Amy telepathically.

"They don't care about your crystals. They want the source. There's a cavern not far from here. It became a cavern filled with massive Kyber crystals. Very profitable. You know that big hunk of metal out near Mars? Guess what powers it's main weapon?"

"If I had told you to come down here, would you have run?" Kar'Anna's hushed tone does nothing to hide the sarcasm. "I told you to run."


"You were kidnapped. Of course I wouldn't have run. The only reason why I haven't bounced a barrel of flaming gasoline down on these creeps heads is A: civilians and you are here, B: I couldn't get my hands on a barrel of gas and C: the guys kinda talked me out of it." she quipped mentally and looked hopeful. "Maybe we can do it when we leave." she gave the Drow elf the mental equivalent of a quick hug.

"Listen, I need to blend. They are listening to you." She continues to make small talk, but addresses Amy telepathically.


"i kinda figured. The mental frequency I'm on is the telepathic equivalent of a secure or jammed channel. They'll know I'm yabbering at someone, just not the content." she said mentally.

"They don't care about your crystals. They want the source. There's a cavern not far from here. It became a cavern filled with massive Kyber crystals. Very profitable. You know that big hunk of metal out near Mars? Guess what powers it's main weapon?"


"So why haven't they mined it?" she asked. "Is it full of monsters or do they just not have the equipment for it?" she shook her head. "If the crystals are as profitable as you say, I'd think they'd be all over it, unless they were prevented from doing so. Since they're not all over it, there has to be a catch there somewhere they can't overcome by themselves."

OOC - Rand can probably figure out at this point what Kar'Anna is referring to. If those became Kyber Crystals during the Merge... damn. And as to why they haven't been mined yet... well, that's kind of obvious.

It could also be monster filled too. ;)

I mean, sure it a toxic, hot and difficult environment (with huge crystals to contend with) but with the right equipment that could be overcome. So it has to be something more than that.

Editted:

Rand turns off his external speakers letting only his encrypted comms pick up his next words.

"There are major crystal caverns nearby and in a place in Mexico co-named with a native canine-rodent hybrid." he says, reading from his helmet's inner-display. "If they get their hands on those it'll be messy. Like, Ewoks-manning-a-Death-Cruiser messy."


Aloud he asks:
"Kar'Anna. You're looking really well for someone kidnapped by a teleporting pseudo-android. This is cloak-and-dagger drek again isn't it? I hate that shite." Rand says in his customary gruff voice.

"Will you be rejoining us when we leave?"

Kar'Anna Maraneth
Condition: Normal (?)
HP: 1

Kar'Anna gives Amy a nod in response to her mental hug.

"Considering I didn't want to come here in the fist place, yes, I plan to leave with you."

Kar'Anna's mental voice lacks any sarcastic tone in response to Rand - to be honest, she was surprised he was giving her such an easy time.

"I had a little disagreement with one of the owners of this establishment, I actually don't know how I got out here. Last I remember, I was fighting. My sword was handling well against a lightsaber.."

Resisting the urge to reach back for her sword to see if it's still there, instead she uses her mental abilities to lift it, testing for its weight.

Shannon

"I still think whatever the endgame is with the crystals, it's about the 'magical' properties more than using them as an energy source." She mentioned over the mental link. "There are easier ways to achieve extreme energy density. Manticoran ultracapacitors, for one."

Amy

"Now isn't the time for dragging you over the coals, you did what you had to do to keep your head on your shoulders. After we get done with this, we'll make sure you don't have any 'hooks' inside you that we don't know about."
she told Kar-Anna and then the rest mentally.

"You're probably right, but if the Star Wars tech relies on them to any degree, then they'll be profitable until those guys 'switch over' to better tech. Also there will always be people who prefer older tech, no matter how nifty the new stuff is. It's what they're used to and comfortable with." she chuckled. "My dad still has his record player for example." she looked thoughtful. "If it's equipment or monsters like pokemon that's holding them back, we might be able to make a deal with them." she said.

ooc
Amy isn't a fool. She knows Kar-Anna is probably compromised somehow and probably against her will. So Amy's revised main goals are getting out and having her friend checked over.


"So, shall we meet our hosts?" she said outloud dryly. "I agree with Rand. I hate this meowth and rattata game."

Noguchi admires your bluntness while cautioning discretion.

"Your friend is right." She says to Rand. "A lot of people are interested in the source of those Krystals. Apparently they do more than just make funky swords. He who controls the crystals will be very powerful and very rich..."

Walking up to the red skinned Twi'Lek is easy enough, although Kar'Anna should either try to dissuade you or avoid her... She is currently talking to a very well-dressed man who resembles Oded Fehr.

OOC - I don't think anyone really has anything in their background to allow them to readily identify his "glove..." but let me know if you think you do.

"Also a good reason to get in on the action. Girl's gotta eat, feed her critters and think of college." she said cheerfully. "There's a reason why I got my GED early y'know." she said, playing her role as the eager mercenary apprentice to the hilt.

"Huh. Seems they're alive." Rand says, reading from this world's repository of knowledge [Google] on the subject of Kyber Crystals in his helmet's inner display. "I guess this would be tantamount to slavery." He tries to keep his voice non-chalant, but it cracks a little at the end.

"Kobra," he says, calling Lindsey by his cover identity, "We going to talk to the people who sent Sektor and goons to kill and abduct us?" he says, but then switches to the secure comms, "Or are we just going to get out of here, call for back up, and hold those mines until our employers can secure them."
"Something pithy this way comes."
