#2 The Sad fate of J9-B8
As you close in on the cantina, the disorderly jumble of the hastily constructed dwellings make for a maze of tight alleyways filled with all manner of obstruction.  Portable trash compactors, piles of crates, personal moisture condensers line the gangways that thread between houses and shops.

As you pass a particularly dark and narrow alleyway nestled between a pair of towering warehouses, you hear a commotion.  There is a loud rattle and a buzzing noise coming from within the alley.  The rattling stops, and you hear a low monotonous voice calling out.  The voice is buzzing and faint, but you can still hear: "Hello! Bzzzt! Help pleazzze! I need help!"  The noises seem to come from a large blue trash compactor next to one of the warehouses.

1-MDK looks down the alleyway, then looks to Dewy ...

"OBSERVATION:  Could be a trap ... if I wanted to put someone at a tactical disadvantage I'd lure them down an alleyway just like that one"

"STATEMENT:  I'm happy to keep on walking ... your call"

"SUGGESTION: If we do investigate, I suggest that one of us remain at this end of the alleyway to provide cover."

Rrrrrgh RrrRRRGHHrgh RrrRRRGHHghhrghHHghhrgh RrrRRRGHHgh.
RrrRRRGHHghhrgh RrrRRRGHHghhrgh RrrRRRGHHghhghh RrghghRghhghh RrghghRrrrrRRRGHHghhghh Rrggh.


Dewy explains, ultimately deciding that he will stand guard while 1-MDK investigates.  Since they're both droids, Dewy thinks they might have common acquaintances, or at the least can relate to each other better.

Dewy stands guard, bowcaster in hand.

1-MDK approaches cautiously, and not sensing any immediate danger, peers inside the trash compactor.  Among the
various bits of rubbish and junk, there is a badly damaged droid. Its head has been dented, one of its eyes has been smashed, its body has been pulled apart, and all manner of wiring, hydraulics, and hardware are strewn about in the trash compactor.  1-MDK recognizes the droid as a 3PO protocol droid.

"Ah! Bzzzt! Greetingzzz! Zzzo glad you f-found me!  Pleazzze help! Bzzzt! They too my f-friend! Pleazzze help zzzave R4-W9! Zzzzzbxzzzz!"

While gathering up J9-B8's various parts 1-MDK says:

"STATEMENT:  We are here to help you, and perhaps you can help us."

"REQUEST:  Unless you have information that is of imminent value to my associate and I request that you save your energy and remain silent until we are in a safe location."

Once 1-MDK has gathered up all of J9-B8, it returns back to Dewy.

As 1-MDK attempts to gather J9-B8's parts, the remaining lights in the wreckage of J9-B8's body begin to dim, he is clearly in worse shape than you initially thought.  1-MDK places him back down in the trash compactor the tension on his tangled circuitry eases and some of the lights return.

"Pleazzze! It izzz to late to do anyzzzing f-f-for me, my zzzelf-repair is failing and I do not have much time."

"My friend R4-W9 and I were on our way to the cantina when we were zzzet upon by a band of th-th-thugzzz! Zzzbxzzt!  They tore me apart with barzzz and dragged him away."

J9-B8's eyes flicker and fade further, "I do not know who zzzey were or wh-what they wanted, but I ha-have my zzzuzpizions.."

Rrrrrgh RrrRRRGHHrgh RrrRRRGHHghhrgh... Dewy mumbles to 1-MDK as he shoves it aside.

Dewy spent the early part of his life creating droids from scrap, now's the time he will test himself to see how well he can do fixing a droid he didn't build with his own hands.  Instructing 1-MDK to continue to keep guard, Dewy attempts to repair the 3PO to keep him online... at least long enough to hear everything he has to say.

RrrRGHHrgh RrrRRRGHHghhrgh HghhrghrrrrGh... Dewy says to 1-MDK as he's looking over the damage the droid has sustained.  They both laugh.
