Re: Tatooine: The Search for Obi-Wan
Syfer pulled the vehicle to a stop just short of the area.  Britton jumped out quickly, clearly concerned.  Kelko got out more slowly, and started looking around carefully, studying the surroundings.  Syfer remained respectfully in the car, waiting to be informed if his help was required.

OOC: Any comments before Kelko gives his analysis?

OOC Nope, other than Britton is keeping an eye out while Kelko reads what happened.

Apparently the heat, his distress, and the continued mild headache.

Re: Tatooine: The Search for Obi-Wan
Britton noticed nothing in the immediate area.

"Our quarry was definitely here." Kelko summarized.  He took a deep breath then expounded: "It looks like Kenobi and the droids helped to pile the Jawa bodies and then burn them.  My only guess as to why is because the Jawas were already dead.  There are native weapons and Bantha tracks everywhere, but I don't think they killed the Jawas either.  From the damage done to the sandcrawler, I'd say stormtroopers killed them and then made it look like natives did.  The younger Human was here too, though it seems he left in his speeder without the others and then came back.  I can't even begin to guess as to why he would do that."  Kelko paused again only briefly.  "Ultimately, they all got back in the speeder and then headed off in the original direction they were going."

OOC: Any more comments?

"I don't think there's anything more we can do here,"  Britton said.  "We should get going before we're blamed for this."

"No arguments here," Kelko echoed.  After hopping back in the speeder and headed on towards Bestine.  After about an hour, Britton's stomach started to rumble.  "Good thing we're almost there," Kelko commented after consulting the speeder's navigation system.  Soon you were pulling in to Bestine, the current capital of Tatooine.  The town had a good number of new merchant shops, a cantina, and near the center of the city, the domed Imperial capitol building.

"I don't suppose we can just ask around for this guy," Britton lamented.  He sat back in his seat and thought, hoping inspiration would strike him.

Re: Tatooine: The Search for Obi-Wan
Britton felt they would be successful in asking around for Kenobi.  Syfer confirmed this sentiment, "I think in Bestine you could easily ask around about someone and learn something."

"Can we ask around while eating something?" Kelko asked, his hand on his stomach.

"I could definitely use something to drink," Britton said, feeling the throbbing behind his eye return.  "We'll stop at a cantina and start asking around after we order."

Re: Tatooine: The Search for Obi-Wan
"Sounds perfect," Kelko echoed cheerfully.  Syfer made no additional comments.

The most obvious cantina was one named "Cheapside Cantina".  As the trio walked up to the bar, the bartender asked "What'll it be today boys?"

Kelko answered, "A Jawa beer.  And do you have anything to eat?"

"Only if you take a booth," the bartender answered.

"Okay," Kelko replied.  "We'll take a booth.  So what do you have to eat?"

"Womp rat stew," the bartender answered simply.

"Anything else?"  Kelko asked.

"Nope, just womp rat stew."

"Womp rat stew it is then," Kelko replied faux enthusiastically.

"And how about you lad?" the bartender asked Britton.

"Just water, for me," said Britton, just glad to be out of the heat.

"Big spender, huh?" the bartender asked sarcastically.  He plopped down a glass of water for Britton to take to the booth.  Since it was evening the cantina was relatively crowded.  As Kelko slurped up his stew, he pointed out, "See, plenty of people to ask if they've seen our quarry."

Re: Tatooine: The Search for Obi-Wan
Britton took a long drink then pressed the cool glass against his forehead.  He looked around the cantina.

"Yeah," he said.  "We'll start asking around once you're done with your food."

Re: Tatooine: The Search for Obi-Wan
Kelko didn't take long to finish slurping down the stew.  By then Britton's glass of water was no longer cool, so he had finished it off as well.

Re: Tatooine: The Search for Obi-Wan
Though Britton could hardly get anyone to even talk to him, Kelko seemed particularly in tune with the crowd.  After only a few minutes, Kelko reported.  "It seems that Kenobi, a young man and two droids were in town two nights ago and left yesterday morning in the direction of Mos Eisley.  Now, it's almost dark so I think we should get accommodations for the night and head for Mos Eisley tomorrow morning."

OOC: Any comments from Britton?

Re: Tatooine: The Search for Obi-Wan
The trio made their way over to the Bestine Hotel, where they were able to secure lodgings for 50 credits.  Britton and Kelko decided to split the cost .  Syfer kept watch during the night, but all was quiet and Britton was able to sleep well .

The next day, the group easily made their way to Mos Eisley.

Re: Tatooine: The Search for Obi-Wan
After two hours of searching, the heroes still had no leads as to where to find Kenobi.

"Well, that was frustratingly futile," Kelko commented out loud.

"I'm sorry you feel disappointed," Syfer chimed in.

"Me too.  But I don't know what else to do other than keep trying," Kelko concluded.

Re: Tatooine: The Search for Obi-Wan
After three more hours of asking around, the heroes finally got pointed to the Chalmun's Spaceport Cantina.  When they entered, they could hear a Bith jizz band wailing from an alcove off to the right.  The place was crowded with all manner of mean-looking beings.  Before the trio got very far, some sort of noise sounded around them and the man at the bar called out "Hey! We don't serve their kind here."

"Your droid. It'll have to wait outside. We don't want it here," came the surly reply.

"Oh," Britton replied, mildly remembering that many older people had issues with droids since the Clone Wars.  "Syfer, go ahead and keep an eye on the vehicle."

Re: Tatooine: The Search for Obi-Wan
"Very well sir," Syfer answered dutifully as he shuffled back out the door.

"Okay, let's ask around and see if anybody has seen Kenobi in the last couple of days," Kelko suggested.
