The woods of De Chima. Hitting the ground from the Porter at a dead run.

[As invulnerable as he likes to pretend to be, Anakin Skywalker is not immune to strong drink. He has engaged in a contest with a certain Valar and failed miserably. Perhaps if Melkor had told him that alcohol has no effect on him whatsoever, he would not have tried so hard to keep up.

He is paying for his ambition now as he reclines messily on Melkor’s couch, completely unconscious to the world. There are plenty of empty bottles around him and it seems all too likely that once he wakes, he is going to be very, very sick.

Maybe being comatose is a blessing in that case. At least until the nightmares find him again. They always do.]


So, uh-

[Melkor poked Anakin, not sure what to do with a sick human. He had never even seen a sick Elf before. He carefully held his phone in one hand, not sure what to do but surely other mortals would know?]

I’m not sure how to make a sick human...better. I think he’s drunk. [He picked up Anakin’s arm, trying to wiggle it to get him awake. Surely this helps.]

[The wiggling earns a deep groan and some of the furniture gives an ominous shudder. Then the previously limp man is pushing himself up quickly and looking...rather grey.]

...bathroom… [He gasps and hauls himself to his feet, running for what he hopes is the right door. If it’s not, there might be some cleaning to do. This is why Men should not drink to excess!

Melkor watched, confused but stayed where he was before looking at the camera with a smirk as Anakin ran into a bedroom instead of the bathroom. He clearly won this and at least it wasn’t his room.]
Someone may want to come and heal him, I like this human and he doesn’t seem to be doing well.

Tell me, of all the cities that imPorts are most frequently housed in, which is the best to actually reside in?

What are the benefits of each? What are the troubles within? Where are the best facilities?

[The voice on the Network is deep, portentous, and elegant. Like a Shakespearean lead speaking from the bottom of a deep, dark cave.]

There are questions I have been pondering, my friends. I have been learning more regarding the history and future of the Galaxy I hail from. The same divisions and mistakes seeem to occur and reoccur in a repeating pattern. Lasting peace and stability appear to be rather... elusive, shall we say.

[Count Dooku sighs for a moment at the tragedy of it all.]

Corruption. Conflict. Ignorance. Incompetence. Injustice. These and so many other challenges are inevitably found in any universe, and they often persist regardless of how strongly they are confronted. Which is why I am curious to hear stories of what you have done to change things for the better, whether in your own world or here as an imPort. What problems did you face? What successes did you achieve? What failures have you had to endure?

[The Count's voice becomes notably lower on that last question, intoning it like a ritual. It's called the Dark Side after all, not the Optimist Side. He pauses for a moment before adding, in a lighter voice:]

I am not thinking of these things purely for abstract reasons, of course. As some of you are already aware, I am organizing an... alternative event outside this month's Swear-In, in Maurtia Falls. While the government offers us the usual frivolous bribes and distractions in exchange for accepting their agenda, imPorts will show what we can accomplish with our Swear-Out. This rally will be a festival for those who desire another path, made possible through imPort food, imPort security, imPort entertainment, imPort organization, and imPort vision for a better way.

I urge all of you to attend, and to let your voices be heard. I am available to answer any questions you may have about this gathering.

[OOC: If this is your first time tagging the Count, check out his permissions post! Plotting for the Swear-In/Swear-Out on the 15th is here.]

I'm not sure if this is the best way to do it, or if this will lead to anything, but - I'm afraid it's a bit of a Missing Persons ad. [Her voice is a bit unsteady in a way that suggests she's trying her hardest to maintain her composure. The apples of her cheeks are a bit flushed, the rims of her eyes a bit pinker than normal. She offers a very, very tight-lipped, twitching smile before her face goes sullen again.]

I'm wondering if anyone has seen the man in the image I'm about to show. He was last seen in De Chima yesterday morning and has not been seen or heard of since. His communicator was broken, though any message sent to him, regardless of format, bounces back as though there's - [She pauses, inhaling a short breath to steel herself to continue.]

As though there's no recipient to be found.

If you've any information, please let me know. Any assistance would - would be greatly appreciated.

You guys! Oh my gosh, you guys.

[The voice is breathless, shaking somewhat along with the video feed as it tries to focus on the person in frame.]

Feel free to ignore me after this, but for the next few seconds at least, you have to see what I'm seeing.

[Finally the blurry figure focuses into a grinning woman in hiking clothes, her hair in a ponytail and a bead of sweat rolling down her cheek, who chuckles once before turning the camera around. It's a little unclear where the video is being recorded from, other than somewhere hilly outside of any of the porter cities, and it's a little unclear what everyone's meant to be focusing on as well. Until the shot zooms in a bit, framing about a dozen big, furry puffballs huddled up near a stream, including a few smaller ones playing together on the edge of the water.]

Capybaras! I'm, like, 90% sure they're capybaras, which makes no sense, but there they are! I, um- I know things have been... especially rough in the porter cities the last couple weeks-- [Including something about zoo animals that have been released or something, though that obviously isn't relevant to anything going on here, why would anyone think that??] --but maybe for a second we can all just chill and watch some baby capybaras play in the water?

I'm pretty sure this is the definition of therapeutic.

Not everyone wants to stay, and not everyone wants to leave. There are good reasons for each point of view.

If the Porter could be used to grant these certainties, what might be the best way to keep it from being abused?

Or is it only right to return to our own worlds, regardless of personal cost?

By now, it's well-known we have a clone problem. I'm fairly certain that mine is responsible for at least two deaths in Heropa. From what I've managed to hear, it's become more aggressive and outspoken about imPort and non-human superiority, to the point of trying to start fights.

[And he is clearly not pleased with this.]

I need information on its location, and I need to issue a warning to anyone that may encounter it. If you find it absolutely necessary, I cannot stress enough killing from a distance of at least ten feet in a non-populated area. Draconians of my particular type explode when we die.

The good news is, its untrained in both combat and magic, making it much less of a threat than it could have been.

Regardless, I would prefer taking care of this situation on my own. Prevent it from harming others if you can, but leave the clone to me.

[The first fruits of Anakin's labors are beginning to show. He is standing beside a seemingly ordinary car - rather old and dilapidated - but as he leans in and pushes a button on the dashboard, there is a tell-tale hum and the wheels lift off of the pavement. It's a far cry from building a vessel that flies yet it is hovering and that's pretty remarkable considering the materials he had to work with.]

This won't hold up for long. [But he grins nonetheless.] It's a start.

[Anakin tilts his head back to look at the sky.]

I bet taxis could get where they're going faster if they could hover above the other cars on the road. Emergency vehicles too. There is so much air space that isn't put to use! [He doesn't really care about that; it's more an observation.] Traffic in these cities just doesn't make sense. It could be solved so easily.

[The communicator is set up in such a way that the main viewpoint is pointed at a clean countertop with what looks like... several glasses of milk, except the milk is various shades of blue. Some are more white than blue, and some are more blue than white. Overall, it's a little weird.

It's a little bit weirder, when behind the row of milk, is a seven-foot robot, and then a human woman.
]

Hello. Because Tanith fails to acknowledge that I have perfect recollection of what milk it supposed to look like, we have to unfortunately ask you people.

[Jyn rolls her eyes, heavily, at Kay's comment, then glares up at him before deadpanning over to the camera again.]

He's malfunctioning, obviously, and doesn't know anything about anything.

I think that the perfect shade of bantha milk is this one.


[She holds up a glass somewhere in the middle of the blue spectrum.]

I drank a lot of it, fermented especially, growing up. I know it's the right color.

You know, I don't think they're going to really know what the proper color is, considering their milk is white, for some reason.

[So everyone- what do you think? The slightly more blue milk, or the slightly less blue milk? Both milks look equally gross unless you're, you know, used to that.]

[The feed is simple, Revan, sitting in a darkened room, with only a single warm light to reveal him and the table at which he sits. Like a storyteller sitting by candlelight, or a dim fire. He folds his hands and smiles a smile that genuinely looks like it's for you. ]

Hello friends. I hope the day finds you well. I have a slightly more... indulgent question for you today. A bit of a hypothetical situation, with a less than obvious solution. And I'm interested to hear how you'd respond in such a situation. There are no right or wrong answers, I more want to explore your reasoning and logical process.

I encourage you all to see this as a discussion, and perhaps even a respectful debate. But this is not a place for judgements.

And so I shall begin. I will try to summarize as best I can, but if I'm unclear please feel free to ask for clarification.

Situation: There are two nations at war, one with a reputation for being good, and one that has proven itself time and again to be influenced by evil. There is a third, neutral, smaller nation that is offering to supply both sides with medical supplies, on the hard line condition that the war not come to their lands. On pain of death, and revocation of their trade agreement.

You have been called upon for you reputation of intellegence and clarity, [There's the slightest twitch at the corner of his lips, as if amused by his own description.] to review a potential breach in that agreement:

A solder for the former nation, with a long history of bravery and honor, stands accused of killing a soldier of the latter. And if found guilty will be executed and the nation of good will see valuable medical supplies cut off from troops in need. The soldier claims they are innocent.

While your investigation is length and nuanced, you eventually come to the conclusion that the two soldiers were having an affair. The living, "good" soldier thought it was love, while it turns out the deceased "evil" soldier was only using the other to spy and steal secrets. So when the living soldier found out, they lured the deceased out under the guise of a rendezvous, murdered them for their betrayal, then attempted to cover it up.

Faced with this knowledge, when asked for your verdict, what would you say? Knowing full well a guilty verdict would result in the soldiers death, and the "good" nation's losing valuable medical supplies to the "evil" nation. A fact that could potentially cost them the war?

I made a speeder. It doesn't hover far off of the ground, but with the right propulsion, it could. Now I just need to account for atmospheric changes or we will suffocate before we get very high.

The Force could get us off the ground if we really needed to go that route. I need to know what kind of control you have and how reliable it is.

[ Not wanting anybody to see his face, Kylo switches the video off before pressing record. He takes a deep breath, not really satisfied with having to do this - he should be able to find out more about this place and find the people he is looking for without any assistance - but this place is large and this seems much more efficient. The technology is outdated, the small device similar to a datapad but much less useful and without a holo function. This must be something that pre-dates his parents, his grandparents, even. ]

This place, I'm not familiar with it. It's not where I'm supposed to be, not even in our galaxy, yet...

[ He pauses, taking a breath, giving himself a moment to gather his thoughts and center himself. There are Force users here, more than one, and he's certain of it. He'll search every city until he finds them, burn them down, kill them all until he finds what he's looking for. However, if anybody can give him any information, save him from traveling through each city until he finds them... ]

But it seems as I am stuck here for the foreseeable future so tell me what this planet has to offer, I'm curious to know.

[When he's done writing he switched to video but all that can be seen is a sheet with neatly written, very premise, Aurebesh symbols written on it-

'I'm sure some of you can read this. What is the last thing you recall before arriving here?'

No one seemed to know about Starkiller and the Hosnian System but he had to make sure and know who else was on this backwater planet. He held the paper there for a few moments before finally cutting the feed.]

With help from everyone who responded, I've found the shooting range in De Chima. And, with some notable generosity thanks to the Major, have managed to get a weapon more suitable for this planet. But thanks to another suggestion, I've been curious about this whole .. paint ball and laser tag thing.

What I guess I'm asking is, would anyone be interested in either of those events? Apparently you need teams of varying numbers.
