    7 years before TPM, the galaxy is at peace but is still full, of crime.

You will be competeing with eachother to get the bounty, smuggle the stuff, ect. you will also be dealing with security forces. the main planet you will be on is Coruscant. You want money for buying better parts for ships, bribes, ect. You may have NPCs if you control a gang or are in a group of smugglers, ect.

    This is my first time on an RPG in a while, and I'm not the greatest of writers, so I hope this is okay.

    Name:Reego Se`ann
    age:23
    gender:male
    species:Rodian
    personal features:smells of pure bantha excrements
    job:pickpocket,con artist
    talent:pickpocketing and dagger throwing
    weakness:never really thinks before he does things, is very clumsy, will give away information at the drop of a hat, and always seems to be getting into trouble.
    ship:Bessy, a modified (and badly repainted) version of a naboo starfighter.
    weapons:Standard Blaster Rifle, Vibro Daggers, and a small vibro axe
    equipment:goggle with special see-through vision (so he can see whats in people's pockets.
    bio: Abandoned as a child, Reego has been living in the slums of Coruscant all his life. In the slums, he learned to become an expert at the dagger and picking pockets, but those seem to be his only good traits. You'd think he'd be pretty tough, but somehow he always winds up falling over his own feet. He's clumsy and unloyal, which means he's gone through many partners. Because of the fact that he always winds up being a side kick and less of a partner in every group he's in, Reego has finally decided to go out on his own. He recently settled down in Tattoine and has been doing small jobs for Jaba the Hutt's goons.

    We start! :)

    IC you are all sitting in a cantina when a guy walks in with two bodyguards.

    "whoever wants some money and I mean a lot of money, come with me." he saw that nobody moved, he mentioned, "the reward is 7000 credits." He walked out knowing someone would follow.

    OOC: you don't have to do this job, because there will be more soon. I think it is good to have two jobs happening at once.

    Cheriss left a few credits on the table as she made sure her sniper rifle was secured over her bare shoulder. She moved her foot so she could make sure her vibroblade was in place and followed the man out of the cantina. 7,000 credits was something to look into.

    Sheen sat alone at the back of a bar, in the mist of the shadow, a drink sitting in front of him. He watched on curiously as the two large men came and spoke to everyone in the bar. Being so far back, he wasn't able to hear a word they said, but also being the assasin he was, he had picked up the trick of lip reading early on in the game.

    7000 credits. Not bad he though to himself. Sheen still sat as the men walked out, followed by a few imposing figures. Huh. Typical, everyone's out after credits today.

    Skulling the last of his drink, he got out of his seat, emerged from the shadows which seemed to be bound to him, and cautiously walked out the bar and began to follow the two large men...

    "I'm on a... um job, and another gang is in the way. I want them all dead. They are a speederbike gang, and very dangerous too. But I want their leader alive. His is a Trandoshan named Guarg Haokar. If you cannot manage to get him alive, and have him dead, you will only get 1000 credits." said the man. "Here are datapads to where and when you will meet me if you get get the job done. hope you all have some good hunting. And, sice you are all here right now, I suggest you get rid of your rivals."

    He walked back into the cantina with his two bodyguards accidentally saying too loudly, so everyone could here. "7000 credits is nothing compared to the bounty we're after."

    Cheriss glared at the man who had been talking about the credits. Does he realize he is gonna get all the people after him? She laughed softly and looked around at the people who were also after the job. She made sure that her skirt fell a good bit above her knees and flipped her hair over her shoulder and smiled at her rivals.

    Can I be the prey for the bounty hunters/assassins and whoever else...? If not, someone can always higher a theif.

    Name: Artemis Thane (Artemis Visputin)
    age: 35

    species: Human
    personal features: 5'11", brown hair, blue eyes, aristocratic
    job: CEO of Thane Enterprises, Art Thief
    talent: Infiltrate, anti-lock, marksman, mountain climb, hand-to-hand combat, anti-alarm system, and more.
    weakness: Can't resist a challenge
    ship: Luxury Yacht Sparticus

    bio: Artemis Thane is a well-known and well-respected businessman. He owns Thane Enterprises that is responsible for developing several new weapons technology which is later sold to other companies such as BlasTech, Cygnus SpaceWorks etc. Thane Enterprises specializes mostly in personal weapons and equipment. Very little is known about this multi-billionare businessman.

    What is not known about him is his hobby and alias. On the blackmarket and in the Theives Underground he is known as Artemis Visputin, a well-known art thief. No one has seen his face and only knows when he's responsible is a special signature he leaves behind at each of his jobs. An invisible spray paint of a cartoonish cat taking off with a painting that can only be seen under UV light.

    He sells most of his prizes on the blackmarket using various alias that would lead to a deadend if they were ever investigated. The rest he keeps for himself, especially if they have been duplicated and sold to the public so he can place his actual piece on display.

    Law enforcement have long suspected that Artemis Thane was the one and only Artemis Visputin, but they have been unable to find any evidence to pin it on him. He has made off with millions worth of artwork, including the infamous "Eye of Palpatine" gem which he had recently stolen from the Imperial Palace.

    Artemis Visputin has a bounty on his head worth 500,000 credits dead or 2,000,000 credits alive. Plus an additional 100,000 credits for each piece of artwork that is recovered.

    Reego sat at the bar, sipping on his fifth brew. Things were starting to get hazy and that was just the way Reego wanted it.

    It had been 2 weeks since Jabba's thugs had fired him and sent him packing back to Coruscant, with only a few credits and even more of a bad reputation.

    I can't believe it! I botched something so simple! All I had to do was get a small amount of spice from Mos Espa to Jabba's Palace. How did I know a swoop gang was going to steal it?!?! I'm such a loser. he thought to himself as he took the brew and chugged the rest of it down.? I?ll have another brew please!" Reego said to the bartender in a drunken ramble.

    "That'll be 3 creds, kid,? the Bartender said.

    Reego looked desperately in every pocket he had, but no credits were left. Reego looked at the bartender with a look of desperation in his eyes. The bartender, though feeling sorry for the poor Rodian, looked at him and said "Sorry kid I think you're done for the night."

    Reego, now even more depressed, got up and began heading for the door when a guy and two bodyguards walk in. "Whoever wants some money and I mean a lot of money, come with me," the man said.

    I bet it's nothing, there's never any good jobs around here anyway! Reego thought.

    "The reward is 7000 credits." he said and then walked out with his guards.

    That's some good money, I should go. he thought to himself. But before he could walk out the door, he was pushed away by a bunch of people taking the offer. Oh man, way too much competition, I guess I'll have to wait for some other offer. He sat back at the bar and put his head down, completely depressed. Then, he heard it.

    "7000 credits is nothing compared to the bounty we're after."

    He jumped that very moment and ran up the man.

    "What kind of bounty are we talking about here?" Reego said in a fake calmness, while inside he was giddy with delight!

    Nara seems interested at the job, but when the man mentions another bounty, he inwardly fumes. Try to cheat me, will he? I will find this Trandoshan, he thinks. Smiling he takes the datapad, and veiws it. I must find him before the others, he thinks. "I will find him for you."

    Artemis Thane sat in the plump leather chair before his Alderaan Cherry Wood desk that rested a few feet from the plexiglass window of his corporate's headquarters located on Coruscant. He had recently finished a business deal with a couple Naboo companies, resulting in a ten year contract to produce certain parts to a new blaster they wanted.

    Now he sat back in his comfortable chair reading the daily paper, especially the part about recent crimes that have occured in a certain sector he was interested in particularly.

    Historical Jedi Artifact Stolen!

    Last night around 3 A.M. CT (Coruscant Time), the infamous Artemis Visputin had broken into the Jedi Library of the Jedi Temple and stolen an important and historical artifact of the Jedi. He had left his usual calling card, a blacklight cartoon cat stealing a painting on one of the walls.

    Jedi Investigators vow that they will recover the artifact and bring justice to the illusive art thief. The Jedi have asked Coruscant Weekly to give this warning to Artemis Visputin, "We know who you are and it is only a matter of time before we find you. You have a chance to return what you have stolen and honorably turn yourself in."

    When asked who Visputin was, the Jedi gave no comment on the subject.


    "A bluff." Thane muttered to the paper. "They have no clue who Visputin is or where he is."

    "Mr. Thane?" Came his secretary's voice of the intercom.

    "Yes?"

    "You're twelve o'clock appointment is here." She replied.

    "Thank you, Miss. Tulla, please show them in." Thane said and the door to his office was opened and two men in business suits entered. He motioned them to take a seat before his desk and they sat.

    "What can I do for you gentlemen?" And so the meeting began.

    OOC: (note: if you have not yet joined, you may still do so.)

    IC: the man turned to the Rodian, "Nothing of your concern." Then he saw almost everone else looking at him and he realized he made a big mistake. He turned to one of his bodyguards, "call up the rest of the gang here!" and he ran to a turbolift at the far wall.
