|Oh I say, top hole old man!|
Unfortunately Monday night's EotE had to be postponed at late notice but last night at Enfield Gamers we got the club EotE going with plenty of mugs of tea and a particularly stunning chocolate birthday cake for Mr C.
As previously mentioned I'd set myself up with a Droid Rogue Fixer, Dig-1-T, envisaging him as something of a uber-geek black market dealer of upgraded weapons, armour and cybernetics as well as hacked info to order for the local gangs. Far from a physical specimen he relies on a combination of malicious charm deception and a shot in the back, in fact back-stabbing of any ilk, rather than any form of confrontation.
Picking up the character sheet I realised that I hadn't really finished it off or worked out my full back story and wasn't entirely sure where I'd put all my skill upgrades. On a whim I also decided to play as an R4 Astromech type.......this all proved to be something of a mistake!
As we got into our first encounter I found myself backing off and trying to talk my way out of things. Feeling a certain C3-P0 expectation I went all jolly hockey sticks upper class British,...it seemed to fit. Moving onto the ubiquitous cantina fight my R4 status became something more of a drag as the rest of the boys did the heavy lifting.
|That's a spicy light based crude!|
Obligation; picking up a hack job for a relatively new gang of Hutt backed slavers it proved to a sting by Black Sun and Dig-1-Ts found himself on the run from both sides and forced to seek protection from a robot crime lord associated to General Grievous who he'd previously preferred to avoid. He owes big!
Motivation: non of these non mechanicals can be trusted, they design build, use and abuse all droid kind without a single thought! Droid kind needs to stand up for itself and be granted the same galactic rights as any "other" sentient race. As far as Dig-1-Ts is concerned the ends justify the means and he's happy to apply his nefarious skills for the cause, especially his. Having been forced to flee his workshop liberating a few "brothers" along the way will provide further support for the cause, especially his (theme?).
