This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

" You got money this time, Fiker.... No more I owe you's!" As he pushes his claws into Fikers chest



What do you do?

Sick of this fool coming into mothers business. He will learn once and for all. I take out my great sword,
"your money or your hand, fool. We will no longer hand out charity."

Fiker

The spacer eyes the great sword... his hand reflexively goes to his side where a holstered pistol can be seen... But then his hand slips into his pocket and he pulls out a wad of loose credits and says " n...n...no , see we just got paid... Its all good

Martin

Martin relieves him of a few credits and waves him in... Then turns to Gamora and says Nice job m' lady... Your mother would be proud even if she doesn't say so

Gamora slides the great sword back into its sheath, where it rests comfortably on her back. She is slightly disappointed, she would have very much so liked to cut that gaser's hand off. Gaser, being what she calls the folk that mine the H7 gas that is ever so popular on this rotten planet they call home.

She looks at Martin, gives him the cheeky smile she has been practicing. Nova tells her that if she wants to get any where in life, she is going to have to work on her charm.

The only place she wants to get in life is off this world and out to explorer some where that does not revolve around H7 and the disgusting men that visit Mother's establishment.

"Theyre not all bad.  After all Mother did choose at least 2 for herself."   Nova gives her sister a sidelong glance after witnessing the last exchange with the spacer.  She pulls away from the doorway she was leaning against to watch her sister.  "And if you think Martin is going to fall for you're "cheeky" smile, you dont know him nearly as well as you should.  Keep practicing tho,  youll catch on."

It was good you had the sword out though.  He thought seriously about going for his gun.    [/INova gave her sister a look that clearly said we need to talk privately.

Gamora shot a look back to Nova. " he's a fool if he thinks he can draw a side arm faster than I can bring a blade to his demise. I'm going to the arena, if you want to talk you'll have to come train."

I walked away, knowing Nova would follow. Not because she wanted to train, but know that was the only way she was going to talk to me.

Nova rolls her eyes.  Like i dont know what shes thinking......   but shes right, although ill never tell her that.  Her shoulders ached a little from hunching over her latest book.  A work out with Gamora is exhausting and exillerating at the same time, and just what she needed to work out the kinks and give her balance.   Besides she needed to think about what she had just found out.

Out of respect for Mother, Gamora just nods and says yes ma'am.

There is no way Gamora was going to mine H7 though.

She grabs Nova by the hand and leaves Pallas of Delights to go work out her anger that just bubbled up.

It takes a little more than an hour to get to the Arena. The arena isn't a gladitorial colliseum so much as a fight club in the courtyard of a tavern... The government knows about this place and seems to tolerate it since it keeps the locals in check...

It looks like a fights about to start and the bookie is taking bets the next combatants are two human Gasser's it appears. They're most likely here settling a difference that occurres while working at the distillary.... And by the lack of seating available you think they brought the whole plant with them.

The arena is surrounded by windows for the spectators...it's built in the center of the Bar...Obviously it's the main reason people patronize this bar...

The first Contestant is a Woman, she's human and definitely a regular Gasser... she's armed with a Pistol and a Gernade
