Let's go with Chak's quarters first then. Ramani is very sure Chak has something stowed away for a rainy day, and aims to find it. Also, any personal effects, data pads etc. could be of interest.

Ramani had better hope Orokos is kind to Kymrel, then...

To search Chak's quarters you will be looking at either a Skulduggery check against 1 Red, 2 Purple, with a Setback as well, or a Perception against 2 Red, 1 Purple and 2 Setback.


Chak's Room(Captain's Quarters)

As Ramani enters the room, he can already see the telltale signs of a man who has experienced what it means to be wealthy. Gaudy ornaments dot the shelving around the room, a platter made of what appears to be electrum sits on the table beside the bed, replete with fruits that look very fresh and a fine, crystal glass ready for the assortment of liquors found in the cabinet above the beautiful timber desk on the opposite side of the spacious quarters. Lush sheets sit across the bed well, likely fitted and folded by the droid serving unit who is still potting about the ship somewhere. Holoscreens, inert at this time, are positioned nicely to be viewed from the bed or by turning slightly in the revolving chair that is tucked against and under the desk. 

A wardrobe is clearly defined by the wooden veneer set atop the durasteel of the regular wall, roomy enough to accommodate a person standing upright from the appearance of the exterior. A datapad looks as though it was thrown on the end of the bed, and the soft duvet is indented by the weight of the electronic device. What appears to be a hunting trophy is mounted on the wall, an alien head from some strange beast protruding in a snarl from the shield supporting it. All in all, the room is clearly well furnished and carries an air of luxury, something not echoed by the rest of the ship.

And if you'd like to identify the animal from the trophy, it will be a Xenology check with a difficulty of 3 Purple, unless Ramani has been to Dantooine in his travels, in which case it's 2 Purple and a Boost.

I'll go with Skulduggery then, since it's slightly easier:

Skulduggery going through Chak's quarters: 3eA+1eP+2eD+1eC+1eS 0 successes, 2 threat, 1 Triumph
a--.pnga-a.pnga-s-s.pngp-tr.pngd-f-f.pngd-f.pngc-th-th.pngs-th.png

Well that's disappointing and interesting at the same time.

Does Ramani recognize the beast on the wall?

Knowledge for beast on the wall: 2eA+3eD 0 successes, 2 threat
a-a.pnga-s.pngd-th.pngd-th.pngd-f-th.png

He most certainly doesn't.

 

Well, with the checks out of the way, Ramani will of course look over the contents of the datapad..

I'll have something for that by tomorrow, work has been somewhat hectic. In the meantime, we have three other characters that could be doing things. What are Torin, Crow and Embee up to?

Datapad Contents:

With a quick tap of the screen, the pad springs to life with a glow of light. It has no lock screen, again owing to Chak's confidence no one would be in his room unless he deemed it. The main screen shows a set of folders, each labelled in detail, listing a long history of financial transactions ranging from drugs to weapons, food and clothing, all the way down to art. One particular file is of note, as it carries a record of the armor found in the cargo bay, and the leverage Chak has over a person named Corvin; someone who is clearly desperate to get their hands on it. Attached to the folder are a number of messages relating to the artifact, some from this Corvin, others from collectors and antiquarians with knowledge of what it is and the value of such a piece. Some estimated costs reach the millions of credits mark. 

After reading this, Ramani can see more folders linked to work for The Black Sun, with shipping manifests of merchant vessels for hijack, storage facility documents showing the best locations to hide or fence merchandise on particular planets, and recent communications between different groups discussing plans for the future. Finally, there is a lone folder of photos, most of which contain Chak and a female Zeltron, usually taking from an angle that would require one of the two to be pointing the camera back at themselves.

"So no to the Chak questioning?" Crow asks, indicating to the prisoner sitting glumly in his cell. "If not, I might have a quick bit of bunk time, unless you've got something you need me to do, Torin. Or you, I suppose, clanker. Got to be fair about it I guess, you're part of our merry band as well."

Hm. Not sure if I should post on Ramani's findings or hold off a bit and let the rest of you post first. Feels sort of odd for Ramani to leave in a huff, go search Chak's quarters and return without the conversation moving on much...

"Hmmm, talking to Chak might be useful, Crow.  Why don't we see how far we can get with him without Ramani here."

Torin approached Chak's cell and spoke to the Devaronian.

"Your fortunes have fallen quite bit in the last several hours Chak and unfortunately they are on the precipice of falling even further.  You've got a number of enemies on this ship that would like nothing better than to space you.  I'm not a being of violence and have tried to stick up for you but I'm afraid my opinion is in the minority.  If you could make yourself useful to the new crew of this fine ship they might be persuaded otherwise..."

Torin let that hopeful note hang in the air

So... I'm not dead.


I've mentioned in a few places that I was dealing with personal issues, and it was making it hard to post. I can't really elaborate on those, but due to said issues suddenly worsening and the end of my senior year in high school, I had a complete emotional breakdown.
I'm recovering now, with the help of my off-forum friends and my therapist. I apologize if I worried you, and I apologize for letting you down.

...though it looks like the GM also went awol in this one, yikes. I hope they're okay.
