**That's cool wink **

Lula waited for the Hutt to address them all but it seemed the fat slug was more intent on eating his greasy snacks. She was just about to scream when he spoke. "Well bounty hunters, I see many of you are interested in this latest offer of mine. I'm sure all of you have heard of the Promised Jewel. The ship holds many a mystery but I'm not interested in that. I want you to capture if for me and either bring it back here to Tatooine or contact me directly. Fortuna will supply you with direction comlinks. Now go and claim me my prize."

Fett cleared his throat. "You lacked to inform us of the payment sum."

Jabba waved a hand and acted vague. "Must have slipped my mind. It'll be for one million credits."

Almost all of the hunters gasped at the price. Boba Fett remained as stagnant as ever. Lula had known the price all along. She planned to wait until only the stragglers were left. She had a fair idea where the Promised Jewel was. She leant against a wall to wait.

Oops sorry about that, yes the book is Dark Lord: The Rise of Vader - I didn't have it handy at the time. And I agree, there wasn't much anguish in that cry it was like "crap did I do that?" wink

Still it could have been done better, it was so Frankinstein. I'm amazed ol' Palpy wasn't screaming "It's alive, alive!"

Mind you the Rise of Darth Vader novel is brilliant in showing how Anakin slowly fades out of Vader. I really enjoyed that book.

Other than being a copycat, what do you think makes Jodo Kast a second rate hunter? Surely if there was no Boba Fett he may have found the niche Fett has. What do you think?

Hey did anyone think that maybe Fett was measuring up Rystall for her coffin? Perhaps he was seeing how long a coffin she'd need after being decapitated. tongue

Well to answer the question, no I don't think Fett is evil. He's no angel but not evil, that's not his motivation, justice however is. wink

That would look awesome. I have a friend who has a full stormtrooper outfit on a dummy which they named Graham.

But I don't have a full Fett costume, nor a part one.

Lula felt strangely at ease as Boba Fett made a dramatic entrance. It wasn't so much the company but the reassurance that this was a big bounty and the big players were in. She had noticed that Dengar has joined the group, although he hung back in the shadows, there were whispers that IG-88 was currently under repair and would not be joining them. 4-LOM and Zuckuss were also absent but were expected to arrive.

Fett's antics seemed to attract the Hutt as a procession of servants and slaves made way for the wide one's arrival. Lula shuffled back and bumped shoulders with a dark haired human, she gave a nod of greeting but didn't apologise. Such gestures were seen as weakness in Jabba's domain.

Lula rested a gloved hand on her blaster pistol that lay holstered against her thigh, she didn't want it stolen. It also gave her a menacing look that she wished to portray.

The slug came into view and Lula felt her upper lip twist into a snarl. She hated Hutts, they really were the scum of the universe. She looked forward to depleting the creature of his credits or even better, his prize.

A lull came over the scum and villany within the Palace's walls. As Jabba was positioned into place he began to laugh as he saw the pathetic figure Fett had left before his throne. Lula hit the translation switch on the side of her helmet as the Hutt began to speak.

"So, Boba Fett, you have brought me a trophy." The Hutt said before he laughed some more. "It appears it was too easy. I only offer you ten thousand credits for this bounty."

Fett's blaster came up so fast that even Lula didn't realised the hunter had moved. "Thirty thousand was the deal."

The Hutt waved an unconcerned chubby arm, "Deals are meant to be renegotiated."

Fett's thumb subtly moved the setting from stun to kill on the blaster. "The time for negotiating is over."

The Hutt laughed once again. "You drive a hard bargain, bounty hunter. Twenty then."

Fett fired a warning shot that barely missed the fat slug's head. There was shuffling from the guards but they quickly realised their error. Fett shot one and the others quickly fell back.

"Fine. You'll send me to ruin, bounty hunter." Jabba hissed but waved over a reluctant droid. "Pay him." Jabba rumbled.

Fett took his reward and started to leave.

"I'm not finished with you yet, bounty hunter." Jabba told.

Fett merely paused where he was as Zuckass stumbled in.

Lula released a breath she hadn't realised she was holding. She felt the tension in the air and it wasn't about to clear. She eyed the occupants of the room. The bounty hunters seemed to have come to the fore. There were a lot she didn't recognise. There was a large human male who seemed impatient with the whole atmosphere and a young Chiss who looked totally out of his element. Obviously the large bounty had brought out all the hunters out to play.

Congrats on your upcoming nuptuials Mel!

Thanks Ursula, the big day is Saturday 6 May. I'll just be glad when the organising is over and we can enjoy the honeymoon. We're going to Adelaide in South Australia so that should be really nice - lots of wine country wink

And as for those on their lonesome, don't worry you'll find someone when you least expect it. A blind date worked for me wink

I think Boba would see drinking, drugs and sex as weakness. He sees the creatures around him submitting and crumbling under the power of such "vices" so therefore he obstains. Plus sex could end up in either the birth of a child or love of a woman that could be used as leverage against him.

I think it would depend on who's point of view you're looking from. I don't think Fett would consider himself evil, he follows his own code of justice. However I'm sure the families of his merchandise certainly see him as evil. I guess it goes with the reputation.

It'd be ROTJ for me, I thought it great to finally see Luke handing the lighsabre with serious skill (mind you compared to the new movies it seems a little slow).

Valentine's Day is coming up, what smoochy plans do you have for your partner? For me it'll probably be a dinner in, we're too poor at the moment due to wedding costs...

If you were able to have one piece of Boba's armour or arsonal, which would you have and why?

Surely with the launch of the new boards we should have a new RPG, I'll get the ball rolling...

Luxury ship, the Promised Jewel, has been lost to space for 20 years. It has only been spotted twice since it's disappearance and those who have claimed to have seen it have been unable to capture it. It is rumoured to be at the edge of the galaxy, drifting closest to Tatooine.

Many seek the Promised Jewel as it contained the riches of a banished Falleen aristocrat, Tulk Ettin. At this moment Jabba the Hutt is recruiting those he thinks suitable to find the ship and bring it to him untouched. The reward is one million credits.

The Rules:

1. You may create any character you want. But please have some variety and clarify their name and species so others can follow their actions easily.

2. You can kill characters you create but you can't kill other people's characters unless they say they have been killed in battle with you. However you can wound them...

3. You can have any weapon you want but you can only have what your character could physically carry - otherwise they wouldn't be able to move.

4. Be consistent, eg if someone says they blew up a building, don't suddenly be assaulting it.

5. If you have sustained many wounds you will have to either get medical help or eventually die.

6. Follow the storyline, sure add a few twists and turns but allow others to see where you want to go so they can help you get there.

7. Have fun.

Lula Trask was sure to don her armour and helmet before entering Jabba the Hutt's palace, she wasn't stupid enough to show her pretty face before the fat slug. She knew the Hutt's tastes towards beauty and how those who possessed it ended up as Rancor food or worse.

Lula adjusted the bronzed coloured armour, the mirrored face plate hung almost to her chest concealing her neck as well as her face. She wasn't about to let her green skin show through. She had an advantage on this hunt, being Falleen. She knew the history of the Promised Jewel and that was information she wasn't about to share.

As she walked to the large door, it opened freely. Obviously Jabba had the robotic eye-stalk programmed to let her in no fuss, for a change. Jabba's Twi-lek majordomo greeted her in his snivelling manner and directed her to the main chamber, she made sure she wasn't standing on the trap door in front of the slug's throne.

She eyed the inhabitants within. There was the usual scum that followed power as well as those who suffered bloodlust as badly as Jabba. It didn't particularly surprise her to see a line up of other hunters. But the absence of Boba Fett was a little unnerving.

Lula found an appropriate place to wait, the fat one was not on his throne. Apparently there were others to come.

Out of the two Star Wars Trilogies, which do you prefer? I personally love the old Star Wars Trilogy, it has a lot more meaning to me than the new trilogy and most of all one Boba Fett! big_smile

I'd say IG-88 too wink

So I'm guessing the counter will not be returning (other than on one's profile?)

Also you don't want to make the boards too colourful as they may become hard to read. As they say less is more wink

Boba Fett Empire is harder to read then Boba Fett Return (or whatever it was called - can't remember). You could also do a Jodo Kast colour theme, with orange etc.

Sounds good to me, I was going to suggest putting Journeyman Protector before Bounty Hunter - otherwise it sounds like Boba demoted himself wink You could probably leave the stars as well, if that's do-able.
