Day 5-6 Fistfull of Credits…BHW, Voss: Kisses, Carbonite, and Kingpins..


Well the weekend was pretty busy after I had recovered from my traumatic encounters with caffeine, nicotine, and whiskey…

So I’ll tell you a story of the damnable trouble one poor smuggler turned bounty hunter has gotten into;

Star Wars The Old Republic-04-25-2015 3-05-39

A mutated assassination beast…dead.

It all started with a meeting. Senator Dodonna was pretty shook up after the mutant attack on her. Of course I had to console her. I mean powerful as she was, she still could fear for her life. Rightfully so too, those mutant beasts could have torn both of us limb from limb. This is why I always say two blasters are infinitely better than one. I also always say there is no such thing as fighting fair. Extra numbers, extra thermite grenades, a couple of pistol whips and a dagger or three are your best friends.

Anyways, this led me to escorting her back to her private apartments.

Always ready to console those under duress.

I woke up the next morning in the lap of luxury. Satin sheets, scented air, pools and food and drink to excess. Needless to say, the powerful do enjoy their perks. As to Dodonna, just incredible. I always thought she was attractive, but waking up to her in nothing more than a silk robe, well it’s a memory I’ll not soon forget. She offered me a drink and sat on the bed. I thought maybe we were going to enjoy a fun-filled morning, but that was not to be. After a long discussion she made it clear that while this interlude was exhilarating for her, neither of us would fit in each others world. The wealthy Senator certainly wasn’t going to give up her standing or the perks that came with it running the hyper lanes with a privateer. She also knew I would never stand to be a tamed trophy boy. Nope, it was better to have a happy memory and a fond goodbye kiss. WOW! Usually I’m the one to leave them pining. I mean either that or getting slapped in the face with a string of expletives that would make a Gundark blush.  Well, she had the run of this one. I couldn’t blame her. She was right, we don’t “fit”. But dammit I would have hoped at least for a few more crazy nights in her private quarters. Instead, I got the cheek caress, kiss farewell, and a slap on the ass. Watching her walk away in those shear robes left me without words.

But I’m not one to dwell too long on this. I used her, she used me and I doubt either one of us cared. It was off to the hyper lanes again. I won’t go into too many details but Dodonna had me looking for some new tech on Belsalvius as well as track down a Crime Lord named Ivory. After some serious problems on a prison planet gone riot, I finally tracked Ivory down. Turns out we had something in common. A hatred for Rogun. In the end, I made the old crime lord my employee. So lets see, a smuggling crew, a pirate raiding fleet and now serious contacts in the underworld. Yup, my plans for the future just got closer. The downside to all of this? Well, Dodonna wasn’t pleased that I didn’t get the tech she was looking for. She also wanted Ivory alive…not “dead”. Ok, lovers sometimes keep secrets from each other. But the thing is, I needed Ivory for my own operations and he was far more valuable to me alive than dead. Star Wars The Old Republic-04-25-2015 3-31-05

With all of that, we at least got word of who sold the mutant beasts to take out the Senator. Hey, I promised I’d deal with them ok? Besides, it was one step closer to killing Rogun. whoever sold those mutants over had closer contact to Rogun and I wanted him dead. Lucky me, the BBA also had two contracts out on some Exchange goons operating out of Voss. Apparently the Voss don’t take kindly to the Exchange raiding their sacred sites. I couldn’t figure out why they wouldn’t just go kill these goons themselves, but who am I to argue? They weren’t amused when I brought the first one back dead. But a deal is a deal and I will get my credits. Especially when my neck is on the line. I let them know, Carbonite freezes were a tricky business and I charged Extra for that sort of thing. Needless to say, with a little effort, the second one went down too.

So a couple more contracts done.Thid gained me enough notoriety to gain my first Kingpin hit. Back to Coruscant I went. My reputation was starting to be known. Sure, I was the Newcomer, but a few heads were turning about in my direction for such fast turnarounds. The contract brokers gave me a big one this time. I didn’t think anything of it. Just another hit. Boy was I wrong. Damned near died for it too. This wasn’t just another hit. The target was savvy and deadly. Our initial encounter was nothing more than us walking into an ambush. Even Akaavi was surprised. We were beaten back so bad, we had been blown straight off the landing pad in the Justicar Sector. Nothing but a five-minute drop into splatterville for us. Akaavi saved our skins though. She had a power grapple and a locking glove that kept us alive. Nearly broke both our spines in the process, but we didn’t die. So swinging from a sensor conduit on a single cable is no way in my book entertainment. I punched out my emergency beacon locator and called in a favor from The Coruscant Coalition. Needed their extraction fast, and some extra muscle to take this bastard down. They sent me Handit, for a fee of course. But well-earned. Even if I only broke even, I couldn’t come home like a whipped akk pup. So Handit extracted us, sent Akaavi to the kolto tanks and got me readied for another run. This time, we were ready for his style. I gotta say, having Handit there laying down a wall of cannon fire is something to behold. Between the two of us, and a medic, we took the Kingpin down. Not easy and left more than a few bodies in the wake but the job was finished. Taking back his head was a pleasure. The look on the Brokers even more of a reward. They thought I was going to be a corpse for this run. Guess next time they’ll think again…Star Wars The Old Republic-04-26-2015 15-39-29

Ok, so I had a lot of fun this weekend.  The freeze dried stiff in carbonite was fun because his  minions did some enormous knockbacks that left me spinning. I was not at all prepared for what a kingpin meant as a contract…silly me. I wanted to thank the help from my Guild: The Coruscant Coalition for their back up on taking down my first Kingpin Contract. Way cool of them! While it wasn’t necessary in reality, I did donate 20k in credits to the guild bank for the assistance. Hats off to “Handit” aka Handitover for his timely intervention. Without him this would have ended very badly over and over. I’m still leveling on Voss, almost lv 46 now. The guild would never force me into power leveling or anything, but they are looking forward to seeing at least one of my alts make it into the beginning ops by this upcoming weekend. So, Damios is my sole focus now as the BHW comes to a close. It was a lot of fun and now back to serious leveling. Hope you all enjoyed the story and please drop some feedback when you can. Till next time, may your account be full of credits and your hyper drives never burned to a crisp…

  1. Yup, much like the Agent on the Imperial Side you can romance almost every female you get in contact…even the prison warden on Belsavius if its to your liking. I like to weave little bits here and there for story progression. I’m pretty certain that the female avatars can romance the male counterparts within the story context. Anyhow it was one interesting run to go through. I did some updating to my Blog look too. It isn’t huge per se but still gave it a little more flavor for SWTOR.
