Part of me wonders if I shouldn’t have just taken off after Ingrid and Content Not Found: rakine when I had the chance. The events of today are pushing me in the same way the events of Tatoonie did and I haven’t been pushed like that in a very long time.
As soon as we were off the ship, we were greeted by a Selonian named Qurzer. They were very demanding to know who our leader was(I’m not surprised Zet decided to take charge) and asked us to follow them. It’s been years since I’ve been to Bespin, so I’m not entirely sure of the political climate or it’s feelings toward us. If someone wanted us to do something, we were going to have to keep it low-key.
Too bad we’re not very good at that. We went to Port Town with Qurzer who brought us to a Pantoran woman named Aris Shen. Apparently her husband is a crime lord on Bespin, running one of the biggest tourist attractions on the upper levels, the Tibana Sunset Casino. She wanted our help but had to run.
That’s when the fire-fight started. Qurzer seemed incredibly indebted to this woman, protecting her and firing at the goons who were looking for her. In a crowded market square. For some reason, Zet, Santos and I decided to help out to the best of our ability. Too many innocents died in that crowd.
We managed to take one of the goons alive and I watched as Qurzer, Santos and Zet ruthlessly played bad cop, good cop. What I didn’t expect, what I should have expected…what I should have ’’’stopped’’’ was the way Zet murdered the man in cold blood. Another life needlessly taken from the world. I may have to talk to her about this. I should. We should try to turn ourselves around now, before we become too depraved. I may not be a Jedi any longer, but the Force doesn’t seem to care much.
Now we must plan how we’re going to break into this casino and get the information we need for Aris to escape her husband. We will save this woman and take down Vorse while we’re at it.
