Joron shook his head at Varis. "Please pay attention, I said we could take a shot at a different artifact if necessary. In fact, I was about to elaborate on the matter further when Kaiten interrupted me with his preferences. As for the artifact in question, it is the burial mask of whom is presumed to be the First Emperor of an ancient civilization of twi'leks. It was buried with him five thousand years before the formation of the Old Republic. It is, in a word, irreplaceable. Not once has it been allowed to leave museum for a galactic tore."

"Specifics, Joron. The devil is in the details, as they say. I doubt that this Mask would be a viable target for acquisition, even by Skaan Distombe. The scrolls, though, might be."

She checks her wrist chronometer and frowns. "I shall return momentarily," she says, standing up and walking back into the master suite.

Re: Mission to Ryloth Part I - Day 1 - Evening
What Varis spoke was true. Stealing the mask was probably above and beyond something Skaan might do. However, men were notoriously stupid when it came to matters of love. If Kala found merit to the plan, her inherent beauty would be enough to lure the man just where they needed him. Still, he wouldn't press the issue; stealing the mask probably came with far more complications.

Even if turbo lasers weren't part of the equation.

"Has there been any word from Master Thallas?" Joron asked, curious to learn if he had found anything of import.

Aadun smiles.  "I've already cracked that, actually.  It's just a matter of making sure that we have access to that computer again.  If it is on there, I'm sure given enough time I can find it," he responds to Kala with a nod.

"I see. I'm looking for something specific, which you might have to check into." Kala replied, as she nodded to Aadun. "A few minutes after we headed out for the cantinas, Sinya came into this hotel with a blue-skinned Twi'lek. I think we need to know who her unknown friend is, could give us a little leverage, or could simply be her flavor of the month... Still, could be worth looking into."

Re: Mission to Ryloth Part I - Day 1 - Evening

Ideally Narik was sure all of his companions would prefer to keep a low profile whilst the Imperial presence was so obvious in Kala’uun. They had an objective to reach however. Worrying Narik was the fact that their escape route had been cut off. The soldier nodded as their options were assessed.

”The Emperor’s Inquisitor will have little regard for the populace or politics of Kala’uun. Stealing the papers would bring certain death to whoever was responsible or the theft or if not them whoever was responsible for their protection. It could result in the dissolution of the current ruler ship. Which is our primary objective” the soldier had been standing but as he concentrated on their plans he found himself a seat and wearily sat down, a day full of boring negotiation had tired him. Seated he continued ”there’s a lot of ifs involved. First we’d have to successfully steal the scrolls. Also a rogue Jedi loose in the city mean anything might happen” he shrugged ”damn fool Jedi whoever ever they are” he frowned. With a look at Aadun as he questioned the religion he gave his own verdict ”if the Jedi were dead the Emperor wouldn’t waste his time with Inquistors. The Jedi are real, I fought along side a few during the Clone Wars. They’ll be too few of them now to change things” he paused as he thought about it ”better that they disappeared and left the galaxy to sort out its own problems rather than anger the Emperor. Like now. Kala’uun now practically under martial law. Its citizens will suffer and likely some will die. The terrorist rebel scum and Jedi inflict only suffering to the people they say they’re trying to protect” Narik realised he had veered from the proposed plans and shook his head to clear it.

”The scrolls are worth a shot. Let’s see if we can manage to get our hands on them. We’re going to be here at least a few more days, well until those Imperials find what their looking for, so let’s stay busy. It the plan turns out to be impossible we can try another tack after”.

Kaiten looks at Narik incredulously. "You even know what kind of danger you'd be creating for the people of Kala'uun, bringing down the Emperor's wrath, and you're still okay with doing this to them?" he asks, appalled.

Kaiten shakes his head in disappointment. "If this plan works or doesn't, you've admitted that you're going to create unknown amounts of suffering and death. I just can't believe that you're not willing to look for a more subtle and less... sinister approach.

"If you piss off this Inquisitor, don't you think the backlash is going to hurt us somehow? Or the mission? What if the Emperor abolishes the entire Head Clan system of government and puts Kala'uun under martial law and an Imperial appointed mayor? Did you think of that? You should just leave the Imperials out of this as much as possible."

Narik had too often heard the phrase collateral damage. Losses had to be expected in whatever course of action they chose but the choice had to be agreed between them. The soldier raised his hands in submission ”I’m not the leader here, only offering my opinion. I suggest we only attempt the theft if we our unanimous” he looked to the others.

”Otherwise our original plans remain. We make contact with Sinya and Brill then go about the elimination of the Distombe Clan. The Imperial presence we could do without, likewise the Jedi but we can’t sit idle”.

Aadun stepped a little closer to Kala in order to get out of the way of the others.  He had said his peace and whatever they decided, he would go with it.  He had no intentions of arguing with anybody.  "Sounds intriguing," he responds and then nods his head slowly.  "Nice work finding her.  Did you actually get to speak to her, or just see her from afar?"

"I just saw her. I wasn't going to think about attempting to make contact in a more unoffical meeting at this juncture. I just wanted to find out who her male friend was, since the bodyguards weren't tossing him up against the wall." Kala replied, as she shrugged at Aadun. "If he's famous, I'm sure you'd be able to find him on news or such..."

”Let’s follow that lead then. Find out who Sinya’s companion is, a meeting with her is imminent so we should be prepared. A meeting with her and Brill should also be arranged as soon as possible. We must also acquire the gifts we will offer them. If we heed the dangers in the city we should explore those avenues together in the morning” he scanned his companions ”maybe Brill will be cooperative enough to aid us. We could also get his take on the option of the theft. Any impact on the city will, if we are successful have consequences on his clan’s leadership of Kala’uun”.

Re: Mission to Ryloth Part I - Day 1 - Evening
"Kaiten, I'm convinced. It's all a very bad idea." Words, like gentle rain, cut the modicum of silence between those that spoke. "I'd hate to see Kala'uun laid to waste because of our actions."

With arms draped lazily behind his head, Joron Sarrus gazed at the ceiling with seeming indifference. His ideas said and mostly vetoed by caution and innocence, he truly had little more to say on the matter. Either they would or would not, there was little in between, at least when it came to a heist. [private to Narik, Aadun Ogden: Even as he says those words, the look he gives to each of you says otherwise. It would seem that the words were meant only to assuage those that disagreed and that he still felt his idea possessed merits.]

However, beneath the facade of a young man that no longer cared, the silent noble listened intently to the ongoing conversation. The small perk of his brow betrayed the moderate surprise he felt when he heard that Kala saw Sinya at the cantina. Her gentleman visitor, however, was something to be expected; her lineage and wealth attested such. "I agree that it would be most prudent to discover the man's identity. It gift us with less...surprises when dealing with her." Pausing, he looked to Narik. "Brill's knowledge will prove most useful to our endeavors, however, if you wish for his opinion on that matter, we would need to meet him tonight, before the envoy of the Emperor collects His Imperial Majesty's prize."

And right now, the clock was ticking...

Narik shook his head ”I don’t we should rush our introduction with Brill. Perhaps it is correct that we should let this opportunity pass” the soldier shrugged his shoulders. Then rubbing his hands he considered what they could do with Joron’s information ”maybe we could try to find out more about why the Inquisitor is here. We could visit the Kala’uun’s Planetary Musuem of Cultural Heritage in the morning whilst the Emperor’s envoy is also there”.

"Even though the mission objectives haven't changed, with an Inquisitor here, and the potential for the delegation's mission to be canceled at any time, our initial time frame has changed. Rather than two weeks, we may only have one week, or five days. While you shouldn't rush things unnecessarily, too much reconnaissance or surveillance will be a luxury we can no longer afford."

She looks to Aadun. "Aadun, why don't you and Kala head downstairs to the security terminal and see if you can find Sinya's mystery twi'lek, then get right back up here."

Aadun smiled. "Of course," he says and nods his head to Varis.  "I'll be right back."  He turns and walks back towards the mirrored panels in the foyer, figuring that Kala would be following behind him.  He opens them up and once Kala steps through he closes them behind him.

Kala nodded to Varis. "Very well." She said, as she stood up, and nodded to the others. "If you eventually take a vote on what we should be doing, I will vote against swatting the imperial hornet's nest, and simply working with the origional mission idea." With that, she followed Aadun to the lift, wondering who this person was.

Once Aadun and Kala had departed to further investigate Sinya’s companion Narik let himself relax. Learning to rest when you could but remain at the ready was a common skill for any with military training. Narik would wait for the return of the pair and what light they could shed on Sinya. Then in the morning he planned to explore Kala’uun with the others.

A few minutes later, Kala emerged back into the room. "Well, Aadun was able to find him, now we just have to figure out who he is..." She said, as she took a seat on one of the comfortable chairs.

Re: Mission to Ryloth Part I - Day 1 - Evening
When Aadun passes around the data disks for others to view the still shots, they see Sinya, who is a Lethan twi'lek like her father, and the mystery twi'lek male, who is a Rutian twi'lek. They are chatting, laughing, and generally flirting very heavily from the looks of things.

OOC: Make Perception checks please.

[Private to Thallas Arno: Thallas recognizes the male twi'lek as Skaan Olan's younger brother, Valsil.]

When Aadun passed around pictures of Sinya and her mysterious partner Narik studied the images carefully. It was Narik first opportunity to view Sinya so he looked as much at her as to her companion.

Re: Mission to Ryloth Part I - Day 1 - Evening
Snatching the disc with delicate fingers, Joron loaded it into his personal datapad for study. Like Narik, it was his first time seeing Orn's daughter and he studied the female as much as the male. However, as he eyed both parties involved, his eyes sought to discern everything. Their clothing, choice of beverage, any sign of guards or a person that seemed to keep a close eye on them despite a total lack of involvement.

OOC: Taking 20 for a result of 29. [private to GM: I should have took 20 in the museum too, heh.]

Aadun handed off the disc and watched his cohorts as they each loaded up the images and looked them over carefully.  He stands there for a minute or so, but then he turns and sits down in one of the chairs.  He figured they'd weigh in on their opinions soon and so he waits.

Re: Mission to Ryloth Part I - Day 1 - Evening
Krysten had entered a few minutes after Kala, and had remained quiet for the discussion.  She was security and action implementation on this mission, not a planner.  She could plan with them if they so needed, but her primary duties were to protect the delegation and implement any plans they required her too.

She took the disc and loaded it up.  She had seen the two twi'leks before, but she still studied the image intently, seeking to notice the things she hadn't really seen before.  Yeah, she definitely needed to install a recorder in her helmet.  She made a mental note before really taking a look at the 2D still holo.

10:11, Today: Krysten Tyner rolled 22 using 1d20+9 with rolls of 13. Perception.

Re: Mission to Ryloth Part I - Day 1 - Evening
Aadun has saved close-up still shots of the two. There is very little to be discerned about their surroundings from those pictures which he has put on the disk. The shots indicate that there were probably five or six different angles for cameras from which Aadun took the stills. Both Sinya and the unknown twi'lek are finely dressed in professional attire.

OOC: If you want to know more than what the two look like, you either need to go with Aadun to view footage or ask questions of those who have seen them.

Re: Mission to Ryloth Part I - Day 1 - Evening
After the examination of the images Narik signalled with a wave of hand that he was too tired to stay up any longer. ”In the morning we should arrange to meet Brill as soon as possible. Once an appointment has been arranged we can acquire the needed gift. Let’s not forget about him in our haste to influence Sinya. By his father’s account Brill will be a willing ally; we should not let that opportunity pass through our hands. Once we have secured his aid we can then focus on Sinya, he will have a shared interest in Sinya’s cooperation as successful completion of our mission will benefit him politically. He will no doubt also know who his sister's companion is” the soldier then stood up and retreated from the room to his private chamber to rest.
