Star Wars: Galactic Tales – Between The Empire and the Rebellion 1.7

bralor_avEvening had settled into the city by the time Ures’vn Bralor and Arden Ramis found themselves outside the complex that held Taphan Yeh’s private apartment. Of course the name on the registry was Phatan Rogg, but a little digging had tied it right up to their man. “The rich ones always think they’re so clever.” Bralor said, looking across the street to the building.

Behind a pair of binoculars, Ramis was trained several floors up the building. “Looks dark.”

“You sure you’re looking at the right window?”

“Yeah.” Lowering the viewer she poked him in the shoulder with it. “But if you like, you can see for yourself.”

“I’ll take your word for it.”

Arden smiled at Bralor, “So solider boy, what’s the plan?”

Bralor gave Arden a reproachful look, “It’s a small wonder the Hutt’s unloaded you onto thi...

Star Wars: Galactic Tales – Between The Empire and the Rebellion 1.6

tiila_avKieran was on a diplomatic mission of sorts; a nice change of pace, he had thought to himself, from kill after kill. A Hutt crime-boss had contacted the Imperium about assistance with an off-shoot rebel band that was causing him some trouble. The Emperor had instructed Kieran to meet with one of the criminal’s agents to decide whether it would be worth risking knowledge of the Empire openly helping criminals just on the off chance that even one of these rebels might be connected to the Alliance.

He had been sent to the palace of this criminal, Durga, on Nal Hutta. As the attendants saw to his ship he was shown his way into the throne room...

arden_av“Acquire property,” the diminutive pilot of the Free Flying Soul took a swallow from her glass. “Most of the time the property that he gets isn’t even enough to pay the note on the Soul.”

The man across the table from her sat leaning against the corner. A gloved finger tapped against his lip of his glass. The cantina was all a chatter with the clicks and snaps of the Vratix that dominated the area, save for a few human spacers no doubt transporting Bacta shipments. From where he sat, behind that bottle of Corellian spiced ale, there was nothing wrong with a nip before flying out. “Afraid you’ll be out of a cushy job, Arden?” He picked up the glass and drained its purple contents.

“You think it’s cushy having to watch out for him all the time? There are days I want to just toss him out ...

Star Wars: Galactic Tales – Between The Empire and the Rebellion 1.4

tiila_avThe familiar red hooded figure that had kept his company for the past four years now stood facing Durga Besadii Tai and a small collection of his alien menagerie as he looked over the trade agreement his negotiator had managed to secure for him. The scarred Hutt writhed happily at the provisions included. “I don’t know how you did it, Sadi. I don’t want to know how.” He laughed and leered suggestively at the ambiguous figure before him. “Or maybe I do, eh? Either way we will be seeing great profits from the spice trades with Tatooine this quarter.” He handed off the papers to the tall purple Brigian assistant that had stood waiting to his left. “You have done your job well. . . However you did it.” He opened a fleshy hand to her in a beckoning gesture...

diva_avAlsten Sarden didn’t look like a man about to die. The corpulent executive celebrated his promotion within the ranks of the Xucphra Corporation’s higher management in grand fashion. His trophy wife hanging on his arm, Alsten greeted his guests without even trying to hide his pride. He’d earned his promotion. He was important. He was going places. He was… a pompous ass.

Diva Aidenne looked around the well attended party with a small sense of pride. Though tonight’s concert had quickly grown from small private performance she’d first been contacted about, she was nothing if not flexible. The concert itself had gone flawlessly; of course, she demanded nothing less then perfection from herself in all facets of her work...

kyra_avTrey crept up to the southern edge of the Dlarit estate, his dark suit blending in with the shadows. He surveyed the stone wall and smiled. It was rough, with regular metallic spikes topping it — spikes far enough for a Hutt to slip between. He pulled a mask up over his face and slipped on a pair of goggles. Placing a foot on the wall, he hefted himself up and grabbed a spike.

Pulling himself to the top, Trey peered across the lawn. Spotting a nearby Bilba tree, he slipped over the fence and sprinted over to the tree. Crouching down, he surveyed the distance to the balcony.”That guard might pose a problem,” Trey thought, spotting the burly man in the ill-fitting suit toting a DC-15S blaster. Trey slid his stun blaster out of its holster and waited...

Star Wars: Galactic Tales – Between The Empire and the Rebellion 1.1

The Sephi known as Overseer Etan was nervous; he had never had an imperial emissary visit him personally. This man, he was unable to procure his name, was coming with the highest clearances and priorities but seemed to have to no legitimate rank or title. Etan was told that he was merely coming to perform an innocent inspection of the new Empire sponsored moisture farm being constructed on Thustra under Etan’s watch. His attendants bustled around him just as nervously, though they didn’t know the real reason for their superior’s fears. As he walked to the landing bay, Etan’s ever devoted second in command Ye’Criep heeled at his side like an obedient dog. Babbling something about everything being up to date and how ahead they were in terms of progress...
