Ethos City, Lithios, The Meissa System

"I felt the rise of that old familiar feeling. I hated it. I welcomed it."

Everything felt suffocating.

Perhaps it was the constant rain pouring on everyone's heads or the invasive amount of advertisements scattered throughout the city that made Arekk feel like he was being strangled to death. Lithios wasn't in a better place two years after his arrival but it continued to thrive, to provide him with opportunities many would kill to have, yet...

He felt he was owed more, something more valuable. To give your life for. What was that, though? He couldn't say.

Old acquaintances had come and gone for the last few years, faces from the past that bring the best and also the most hurtful memories flooding back like a tsunami. The booze supressed all those painful memories, sitting alone in the Triple Overdose Club while enjoying a cancer stick or conversating with the girls who served drinks helped a bunch too.

"It's not a pretty thing to witness." Arekk said to the droid bartender, who certainly didn't speak much but rather served drinks on command, a half empty glass of Savareen brandy resting in front of him. "I bet you don't care, do you?"

The droid shook his head negatively and immediately countered with: "Do you want some more?"

Funny but he wouldn't say no to a drink. It kept him alive somehow... Hopefully someone else could.

Looking to get any kind of threads for Niklaas Azthal, a debt collector who lives in Lithios, a Cyberpunk-esque planet, while trying to survive the mean Ethos City streets.

 

Maybe you'll be interested in Roy Krannurak, a rookie cop that works as a junior Detective for the Ethos City Police Department in Lithios.

 

Perhaps Arekk himself too? Pretty much anything for all three except relic hunting. I need more threads!:lol:

 

Social call, steal a bank, go to a nightclub, kill someone? Let me know!

Home.

The scent of cigarra inside of the establishment was suffocating enough and combined with the loud patronage enjoying way too many drinks made Ar'ekk feel like he had never left this planet at all. Little did he know that a job would take him once more back to his homeworld that he very swore to never return to but that's just how life strangely worked, you never got what you asked for.

 

If there's anything you can choose is how you feel and certainly the aliens spread through the sabacc table couldn't do that at all as they saw their life savings being taken away by one very smart human slicer such as yours truly. Green sylop here and a powerful deck of carrs over there had him amassing a big fortune of sorts, good enough to buy anything or anyone in this city. Playing was just a pleasure for him, not business.

 

Enjoying taking other people's money was his drive, nothing more, besides attracting a handful of people over to his table while continuing to win at impossible odds.

"Are you sure you wanna make that move, Kehl?" He mused with a big cocky smile, rocking back on his chair with a glass of Savareen brandy on his hand and a cigarette to accompany his poison. "We all know how this ends."

 

Cards revealed on the table and another win for Ar'ekk. Impressive to say the least.

Another night, another drink.
 

The sour taste of his Savareen brandy made him feel dizzy while sitting down on the stool, sight becoming blurry for a moment before getting clear again. It had been a while since alcohol traveled freely through his system let alone his ears enjoy the bassy sounds of music erupting from the loudspeakers located throughout the bar.

 

On the background dancers flew around like birds with their gentle yet marvelous movements while matching the rythm of the tunes playing, a mix of synth combined with sounds of ancient wailers that paved the way to a nice song.

 

"I'm telling you, K. This job is going to be a success." Ar'ekk explained to the droid bartender who didn't seem to invested on their "friendly" chatter, instead refilling the man's glass with water instead of liquor. "Thanks."

 

Though the bar didn't seem crowded enough it soon would given that the nights on Lithios were long and everlasting. More patrons would walk down the stairs into this little underground world of sorts, both women and men looking to simply enjoy themselves by dancing and drinking.

 

"No more drinks. I gotta drive home when the party is over." Funny to consider that now, times really were changing. "Get me a coffee instead."

Star Wars: Episode IX Cast Announced

 

"Returning and new cast members will join together for the final installment of the Skywalker saga."

 

Star Wars: Episode IX will begin filming at London’s Pinewood Studios on August 1, 2018. J.J. Abrams returns to direct the final installment of the Skywalker saga. Abrams co-wrote the screenplay with Chris Terrio.

 

Returning cast members include Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, and Billie Lourd. Joining the cast of Episode IX are Naomi Ackie and Richard E. Grant, who will be joined by veteran Star Wars actors Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, and Billy Dee Williams, who will reprise his role as Lando Calrissian.

 

The role of Leia Organa will once again be played by Carrie Fisher, using previously unreleased footage shot for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. “We desperately loved Carrie Fisher,” says Abrams. “Finding a truly satisfying conclusion to the Skywalker saga without her eluded us. We were never going to recast, or use a CG character. With the support and blessing from her daughter, Billie, we have found a way to honor Carrie’s legacy and role as Leia in Episode IX by using unseen footage we shot together in Episode VII.”

 

Composer John Williams, who has scored every chapter in the Star Wars saga since 1977’s A New Hope, will return to a galaxy far, far away with Episode IX.

 

Star Wars: Episode IX will be produced by Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Michelle Rejwan, and executive produced by Callum Greene and Jason McGatlin. The crew includes Dan Mindel (Director of Photography), Rick Carter and Kevin Jenkins (Co-Production Designers), Michael Kaplan (Costume Designer), Neal Scanlan (Creature and Droid FX), Maryann Brandon and Stefan Grube (Editors), Roger Guyett (VFX Supervisor), Tommy Gormley (1st AD), and Victoria Mahoney (2nd Unit Director).

 

Release is scheduled for December 2019.
