OOC: Interesting title. I assume this is the beginning of the swashbuckling adventures of Nym Sparrow and the dashing crew of the Millennium Pearl?

A shuttle descends onto one of Kamino's docking pads; three figures emerge: Rogue and Shiva, led by Nym. The three go inside, looking around.

*Nym and his companions are greeted by a Muun and a Kaminoan upon entering.*

"Greetings. We've been expecting you." The female Kaminoan says calmly yet somewhat cheerfully. "I am Tamia Su, and this is..."

"Mott Grileon." He interupts. "I am the liaison for a group called Jericho. I don't suspect that you've heard much about them, I'll explain everything soon. You have made quite a reputation for yourself in the underworld Nym. Thus we've recruited you for a particular series of jobs we need done. Tamia?"

"Come, I will show you the meeting room."

"Jericho's the group that wants to bring down the galactic factions in the galaxy, right?" Nym asks, recognizing the name from one of his contacts.

He gestures for Rogue and Shiva to follow; the former looks around, paranoia dictating her actions as she notes cameras, alarms, and any other defenses, along with escape routes and paths; Shiva remains calm, knowing she would be able to sense any traps laid out for the group.

"What're these jobs?" Nym asks as they go to the meeting room, intrigued as to why a radical anti-establishment group wanted to hire him.

*The walk down a large corridor and into an elevator.* "Well, I wouldn't put it that way. Destroying them completely would only bring unneeded chaos and other awful things that would follow such brash actions. We aren't a group of terrorists bent on destruction, even though we may associate ourselves with some. We simply seek... reform... to eliminate corrupt influences, and clean the slate. Though I suppose for all intensive purposes we sort of are in... some ways, an 'anti-establishment' group."

"Our leaders like to keep a lot of things to themselves, and sometimes mislead lower ranking members, so that if there are intel leaks the damage is kept to a minimum, and our enemies are kept ignorant of our long term goals. If they think we're merely some terrorist organization, all the better."

*The group exits the elevator into a large room, a Grand Hall, complete with a garden and other soothing ornaments, such as a waterfall and pond. Its was several floors high, the lights on the ceiling and the atmosphere made it seem like they were outdoors. Dozens of individuals were talking and relaxing, some in robes, others in combat armor, and other attire that would give away who they might be and what they do. Near the center of the grand hall there was a display where some sort of Mech was being showcased and demonstrated.*

*Mott listens to Nym's 2nd question and responds:* "The Jobs involve the Hutts. To be frank, that's all I know, I'm just a middle man. As I said before, the higher ups don't tell me anything unless its absolutely necessary. I'm just here to negotiate a price once you've been filled in."

Nym follows, listening. He takes note of the mech and immediately begins comparing it to Fido.

Rogue continues to look around almost nervously, loathing the idea of being in a place that could very easily turn into a battleground. She once again takes note of all cameras, guards, and forms escape plans and routes, just in case. Shiva continues to remain calm, again safe in the knowledge that she could sense any traps and warn the group.

"Well," Nym says to the Muun. "Shall we begin?"

"We are almost there." *Tamia says*

*They approach a large door at the opposite side of the room guarded by what seemed like two clone troopers. They let the group pass. Tamia stays behind however.*

"I have other matters I must attend to, I hope the meeting goes well." *She nods and takes and leaves.*

*They board a cargo lift, which they take across a large bridge to another structure. At the end they pass a checkpoint where they are scanned. They get an alert that Nym's team is armed but Mott waves them off, and they get a message on one of the terminals telling them to let the group through. They pass on a catwalk over a storage room stocked with weapons and supplies, with engineers and guards performing their respective tasks. The inside of the building was different than the rest of the Kaminoan architecture, and looked as though it was built recently. At the opposite side they pass one more corridor and enter a large cylindrical chamber with a dome-like structure at the center. Guards and other individuals were either attending to their duties or chatting across the chamber.*

"I will be waiting here until after you've finished your business with the council members." *He points to the dome, which was obviously the meeting room Tamia mentioned before.* "They'll fill you in on everything you need to know."

Nym, Rogue, and Shiva walk into the meeting room, Nym waiting while Shiva and Rogue continue their habitual observations.

*Upon entering they pass through one more checkpoint. The are locked in in a small hallway, then scanned, after the lights around them turn green and a chime is heard, the doors unlock and they are allowed to pass.*

*They walk into a dimly lit room, circular in shape, and had several holo-projectors arranged on seats in a respective manner to the shape of the room. At the opposite side there is a desk and behind it a holographic screen where two figures were sorting through the information displayed on it. After noticing the door open and Nym's group enter, they shut the screen off, turn around and take a seat. One behind the large desk, the other on one of the nearby chairs. The lights brighten slightly.*

*The figure sitting behind the desk greets the group. He wore a mask, and business attire, the other figure was a male Kaminoan.*

"Welcome Nym, we have much to discuss."

OOC: Remember that all previous events involving my character and yours were retconned, so our characters never met before now.

OOC: .... O.o .... o.O ... -.- .... :/ That thought never actually crossed my mind... Kamino was just a convenient setting and part of the background of my faction (I'm already building a clone army). But that's... a GREAT IDEA! Thanks Ori! xD Now I will have an army of Nym's based of his (possibly stolen) DNA! Muahahahahahahahaa!

"You have me at a bit of a disadvantage, I'm afraid," Nym replies. "I assume you have some alias by which I should call you."

"But I suppose that's besides the point. What's the job?"

"I am Praxis. He, is Kama Tek." *He gestures his hand towards the Kaminoan who nods.*

"We summoned you here becuase we require your particular skills, if that wasn't obvious. We became aware of you and your crew fairly recently, and in the nick of time."

*One of the holoprojectors activate, it displays a black box with a number 07.*

"Sorry I'm late." *It speaks* "Have you told him anything yet?"

"No, we only just started, go ahead and brief him on the job." *Praxis answers.*

"Greetings... now where should I start... lets see. *he mumbles* Our organization has been slowly building up strength for some time now, in secret. Very few know of our existence, or our true purpose. However, in order to increase our power and influence even further, so that we may be taken seriously by the likes of the Empire and Federation, we must expand. The Hutts stand in the way of this expansion throughout the Outer Rim systems."

"Gervo the Hutt runs a large part of the Cartel's drug manufacturing and distribution. Death sticks, spice, and many other drugs are all produced under his control of the drug trade."

"It is a massive source of income for the Hutts, and we need you to disrupt it."

Rogue scoffs. "So you basically want us to fight a private war with the strongest and most dangerous criminal faction in the galaxy?"

Nym cuts her off before she can continue. "We'll take the job, but only if you plan on giving us a pretty decent amount of pay to make up for the fact that if Soha catches wind of me challenging his Empire, I'll lose all of my connections in anything involving the Underworld."

"My associate didn't make things very clear. We don't expect you to declare war on the entire Hutt cartel. We expect you to go after, Gervo, one warlord." *Praxis explains*

"You see Gervo is one of the few, or rather only, people that Soha genuinely trusts. Soha wished to control the entire criminal underworld in the outer rim and thus crushed any of the Hutt Warlords that dared to resist him. As a result, Gervo was given his position as one of his top lieutenants. Soha is clever and cruel. We've been at odds with him for years, we've tried several times to deal with him directly either through negotiation, assassination, sabotage, or sheer brute force to take control of Hutt space. He's always managed to manipulate the situation in his favor. All of our attempts have either outright failed or we were forced into a stalemate. We were able to cover our tracks so that Soha couldn't place bounties on our agents but that's the best we've managed to do."

"But it seems we were too impatient, Soha has had to turn his attention to other matters such as dealing with Imperial and Federation encroachments that have begun to happen more regularly. Thus, Gervo has been given many hefty responsibilities, while certainly competent and loyal to Soha, he isn't quite as smart as his superior. We believe he can be exploited to get to the great criminal mastermind himself."

"But it all must be done quietly, and with a great bit of subtlety. That's where you come in."

"What exactly do you want us to do?" Nym asks, not understanding completely. "Raid Gervo's shipments and essentially ruin his business?"

"Something like that, but raiding a few of his ships won't be nearly enough, they have hundreds of vessels and plenty of professional smugglers under their payroll. Using simple piracy alone to disrupt their business would be nearly impossible."

"We need you to raid a few particular shipments passing through Federation space. They are owned by shipping corporations that do business with the Hutts in secret. We expect them to not only contain the shipments of spice but also information. When you raid these ships you'll extract any information you can from the data and navigation logs and interrogate the captains and crew to find out what they know."

"One catch. You must disguise the incidents as the Federation's doing. The Hutts will know something is wrong if they find that their ships are being robbed by pirates that are supposed to be under their payroll. I'll leave the details on that matter up to you."

"If you can accomplish that, expect to be paid rather handsomely."

"Excellent, return to Mott, he will work out your contract. After that you may return to your ship and leave. We'll contact you once the targets of opportunity have made their appearance."

With business concluded, Nym leaves to work out the contract. Once that is done, the three depart Kamino in their shuttle. The small craft docks with another and is left behind, to prevent any possible tracking systems from working.

"Well, that was interesting," Nym says.

"Indeed," Shiva replies. "Never thought we would end up working for a former member of the Sith Council."

"Neither did I," Nym replies.

"Have we got a plan to fake the Federation involvement?" Rogue interjects.

Nym thinks for a moment. "The Furati and Loki; do they still have their Federation markings?"

"I'm not sure. We could always make a few modifications," Shiva replies.

OOC: Yes, it is viable for Shiva and Nym to know a bit about Praxis' past.

OOC: I think I retconned that part about my character and decided to start fresh with a new background story. But it doesn't matter I guess. I might implement it somehow, it might be interesting, it just needs to fit with the timeline is all.

Description

*One of Nym's contacts informs him of a potential job, well paying of course. The details are vague, but the the information is genuine. He is instructed to travel to Kamino, where the specifics of the contract will be revealed and negotiated if necessary.*

OOC: I've decided to do a number of short "build-up" events that will lead into the main Hutt event. Since AK is the one who helped inspire me the most in this, his part in the overall event will come first.
