Down and Out in the Colonies
Another world, another city. It looked like all the others.  All the flash and charm and character in the rich and commerical areas. The rest of the city more run-down and dirty and full of people just trying to get by. Those who live on the edges of the law, or even the outsides. Those who do not speak to their neighbors for fear they will turn on them.

And once again, it was dark. Where the low lives and criminals and down-on-their-luck come out and roam the streets.  A time of night that you have come to know all too well. The time that cloaks you, wraps around you, and isolates you from the stares and looks and comments of others. The time that is the only small shred of comfort you have left these days.

Another bar, another drink. Bad music, the low hum of conversations, and the smell of different species and drugs in the air.  And like most seedy bars, a fight has broken out. Drunken fools, arguing over some mundane thing, who seek the thrill of violence to settle their fued.  The memories come back quickly. And it just brings back the burning feelings of hatred and revenge and desire to see those who made you suffer get the justive they deserve.

Re: Down and Out in the Colonies
Roq struggled to keep his anger in check. He got up  and pays for his drink and walks out of the bar. Part of him wanted to get into the fight but he didn't want to draw attention to himself.

Re: Down and Out in the Colonies
A few blocks away, deep in the cover of night, a stranger bumped into Roq. Not hard, but enough to jostle him.  The human mumbled "sorry" and kept on walking. He walked down the block and turned, heading away.  He did not pay any further attention to Roq or anyone else around him.

A block or two later, Roq noticed something in his jacket pocket.  A piece of flimsiplast with 3 words hastily scribbled on it.

The Bloody Ranchor.

The name of a bar. A real low-life bar full of the dregs of society.

Re: Down and Out in the Colonies
Roq looked at the piece of flimsplast, wondering  who could have sent the message. He doubted that the slimeball hutt had sent it, he would have sent some of his men to deliver it. As he entered the bar he got a bad feeling about this meeting.

Re: Down and Out in the Colonies
As soon as Roq entered the bar, he was greeted be a smiling Devaronian.  "Welcome to The Bloody Rancor!! How may I assist you tonight?"

He seemed a little out of place for the surroundings. He was wearing a well-kept suit and seemed cheerful. Most of the decor, and some patrons, had seen better days. There was a gloom that hung over the crowd through the thick smoke and the smells of many spices and odors mingling.

He looked at the Devaronian with suspicions. "Yes i was given a message to come here. May i assume you sent it."

Re: Down and Out in the Colonies
The Devaronian kept smiling and shook his head.  "No no no, my friend. I am just the manager at this establishment. I did not send your message. But I believe my friend at table 32 did. I can have one of my workers escort you there if you like."

As soon as he finished that last sentence, a Bothan appeared at his side.

Roq shook his head and says. "No that's okay just point me to where this friend of yours is, and I'll see what he wants." he looked around the bar, seeing if anyone was keeping an eye on him. And also seeing if he can get a good look at the person, who sent him the message before approaching them.

He smiled, and held his arm out and pointed to the right. "He is in the last table in the corner. The one in the shadows. Be careful. He can be a little hot tempered. And as always, enjoy your time here at The Bloody Rancor!!"

Roq nods, and says dismissively to the devaronian as he passes him. "Yeah yeah thanks for your help."and walks to the booth. "So you wanted to meet me. What do you want."he says to the person in the booth.

Re: Down and Out in the Colonies
A hooded Quarren male sat at the table.  His cloak's hood was partially up, but enough of his face showed to make out details.  He sat with his back to the wall and a view of the entrance and most of the room. He looked up at Roaq and gestured for him to sit down.  "Join me. We are awaiting one other participant, then we can begin."
