It's here that we find our Heroin's Gamora and Nova.... Outside of their mother's brothel.. Pallas the Madame here is lecturing some new Geisha's ...while Martin, the Bodyguard...stands watch He's speaking to a Spacer who smells like H7 Gas, and Booze... Martin says to him

" 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.

Madame Pallas

As they finish thier conversation, Madame Pallas stops them and mentions

"   tommorow you go to work for Mortha Engineson.... And I don't want to hear any lip... I've worked too hard...shes never had any Native Tarawans in her employ,

Post by: RoaringSpy2390 on July 26, 2015, 03:56:34 pm
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.

Shes not sending us to the mines.  We're going for interpretation purposes.  Something about native species......    I couldnt get all of it.

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

The second contestant looks like a much less experienced Gasser but has been around a bit...You find it Interesting that he doesn't seemed phased by the fact that he's armed with two swords against a pistol and a grenade...

Both contestants are in a small waiting area one on each side of the Bar as they prepare for the match

OOC: ( OOC stands for out of character, so any discussion that needs to be made that isn't directly involved in gameplay)

 Nova still needs to select her psychic Disciplines. Here's a run down of the options.

1. Biopsionics (Healing). The first biopsionics skill is called "Biostasis": This skill allows you to stabilize a wounded person. You will still need to get them a medkit afterwards or medical treatment, but it can stop them from dying.

2. Metapsionics (Boosts Other Psycihics/and regular powers). The first skill in Metapsionics is called "Psychihc Harmonization" which allows resistance from psionic forces allowing a +2 to all saving throws vs psychic powers.

3. Precognition (Seeing the future). The first skill in Precog is called " Omen". this allows you to sense if your next action will result in physical injury or mental distress.

4. Telekenesis (Moves stuff with your mind) The first skill is called "Remote Manipulation" which allos you to  move any visible object as if with one hand. Allows you to attack with an object at a -2 penalty.

5. Telepathy (read others minds) The first skill is called "Empathy" which determines the current emotions in a target

6. Teleportation (disappearing and reappearing somewhere else) The first skill is called "Sidestep" which allos you to teleport up to 10(32 ft) meters and carry 5 Kilos (11 lbs) of stuff or people while you do it...

Please select one these as your MAIN discipline and then one as a SECONDARY discipline. so you will have two powers. As you level up you will automatcailly recieve the 2nd skill in your MAIN discipline. and then you can choose any other discipline to receive your next skill in. For exam,ple you can either choose the 2nd skill of your Secondary Discipline you've chosen at this time, or you'll be able to choose the 1st skill in any other discipline...
Title: Three...two...one...FIGHT!

Gamora is slightly put off that there are people in the arena so she can not get a practice in. But then what better practice then the real thing. So she signs up to be part of the next fight. This way she can get some practice in and win some credits. No doubt that she won't win. These Gasser's have nothing on her. She has been practicing for this since she was old enough to walk. Martin had her and Nova doing routines and floor work since he came into their lives.

Gamora would not find out who she was fighting until they were both in the ring. The "club" liked to keep the suspense that way so no one got over confident. So she watched the female Gasser with the pistol dominate the floor as she awaited her turn...

The Bookie Marks down Gamora...  He's a small man, with bags under his eyes almost as big as the money bags in his pockets...

(http://media-cache-ec0.pinimg.com/736x/5d/e0/c0/5de0c0b52c6b1ca3c12c64d9b1d10be2.jpg )

" Have you ever fought here before? "  He says in an eerie quiet voice... But he doesn't look up to really examine Gamora's features
Title: (IC)SWN: Tarawa
Post by: RoaringSpy2390 on August 03, 2015, 09:27:24 pm
Gamora responds, "you know I have Bookie, you yourself have paid your fair share of credits to my account."

It is illegal for the fighters to bet on themselves, but some times the Bookie looks the other way if you send a few credits his way.  
Title: (IC)SWN: Tarawa
Post by: RookieRPG on August 03, 2015, 09:37:27 pm
He pulls back his hood... and takes a 2nd glance..

 "Ahh , Gamora ... Nice to see you again "

No one knows what planet the Bookie they call Krone is from... He mostly keeps to himself and is generally only concerned with one thing...the money bags he keeps in his pockets...

The fact that he has money bags for physical credits to be put in is rare... Most planets use electronic money...though on a backwater planet like Tarawa..that most common Tech is Level 2, actual physical chips of credits are the most commonly accepted form of currency...

"Im in too."  Nova comes up behind her sister.  She slides the bookie 5 credits.
Title: (IC)SWN: Tarawa
Post by: RookieRPG on August 06, 2015, 10:27:14 pm
The bookie takes a close look at the credits sliding across the table... and addresses Nova

"Hmm, Your features are similar to this one here.. " He points to Gamora
"But have you fought here before?"
Title: (IC)SWN: Tarawa
Post by: Nova on August 07, 2015, 08:13:59 am
"My sister.  My name is Nova.  No I havent, but theres a first time for everything."  She quirks an eyebrow at him and gives him a challenging look.

Post by: RookieRPG on August 07, 2015, 11:08:05 pm
" There is indeed a first time...for Everything " The bookie says to her

You see the other contestant's just about ready to enter the arena...
Title: (IC)SWN: Tarawa
Post by: Nova on August 09, 2015, 12:22:08 pm
"Ready?" Nova looks at Gamora and readies her weapons.
Title: (IC)SWN: Tarawa
Post by: RookieRPG on August 10, 2015, 09:16:21 pm
The bookie makes a motion towards Nova as she readies her weapons...

"Now, hold on a second, we're doing one on one matches today...you got to wait for these two to finish their match...then you can have yours "

As he says this the Gates come shutting down locking everyone out of the arena, and the two contestants in...
Title: (IC)SWN: Tarawa
Post by: RookieRPG on August 10, 2015, 09:17:13 pm
As the contestants enter the rink there is a sign over their heads that reads "To those who've gone before". and 3 Pin holes...The signs over each contestant are identical. Any regular patron of this establishment knows that those 3 pinholes represent the 3 people who've died here during Duels...these fights are real, that's why people come, death is real...and sometimes the finality of death over the rush of the fight will outweigh anyone's intentions of stepping foot into the arena...

The match is over before it's started...Perhaps in many situations when the Rules are that you're allowed two weapons and it doesn't say anything else..and on of the parties brings a grenade to a knife fight...you can imagine how it plays out... The swordsman starts off fast and hard quickly making progress over to the Girl Gasser... However she must have had a short fuse on that nade because as soon as he took off she was whipping it like a baseball...not that you know what that is, you've just heard from Earth legends...The swordsman tries to swat it away with his greatsword but it explodes when the greatsword makes contact and after the clouds and dust of shrapnel clear away his body can be seen laying there unconscious and bleeding...The Gal Gasser draws down on him with her pistol mainting gunpoint, but he doesn't move... Medical Crew quickly attends to the man with some more sophisticated medical equipment then Gamora has ever seen or heard of...and that Nova has heard of..but never seen...

Nova watches the people working on the man on the arena floor.  "The med crew seems well prepared.  You do realize how pissed Mother will be if one of us gets damaged, dont you Gam?"
Title: Fight!!
Post by: RoaringSpy2390 on September 06, 2015, 03:11:40 pm
Nova did not realize but Gamora talked to the bookie and told him he was taking the place of Nova in her fight. Mother would never forgive if she let Nova get hurt. Once they cleared away the bits of the other guy Gamora was standing waiting at the gate. As soon as the metallic click of the lock slid back Gamora slipped in then shut it again.

Gamora did not look back when Nova called out to her. There would be time to explain later. She waited in the ring for whom ever they had matched her with.

She was ready for this, this is what she needed. Nothing like a gratuitous amount of violence to make up for a shitty day.
