Units on the Ground:
Fortifications at Location:
The Uscru Entertainment District is an entertainment district on Coruscant, and the location of the Galaxies Opera House, the Outlander Club, the Snapping Septoid, the Revwien Comedy Academy Playhouse, and the Vos Gesal Hotel. The district, located near the Senate District, is alive at night, with holograms that light up the streets. It is considered the outer layer between the jewel city and the Coruscant Underworld.
For many years, the mayor of the Uscru District was the corrupt Ongree Acros-Krik. While the Uscru District is infamous for its seedy lower levels, the upper region of the district attracts a more refined clientele. The Galaxies Opera House, owned by Romeo Treblanc, is a popular venue among the glitterati of Coruscant.
The district is a known hangout of deathstick dealers. The intersection of Daring Way and Vos Gesal Street in Uscru is considered one of the highest crime-rate areas on Coruscant.

Chiren stops in front of a cantina and pays the driver before getting out. He looks up at the cantina sign, and takes a shallow breath. He enters the cantina and walks up to the bar and orders a decent looking meal from the menu.
Ryka is headed from table to table asking people if they could get him off world. He had no money but is willing to work. He keeps filling his stomach call to him. The knots from hunger coming more often around so many people. Ryka saw this new person enter the cantina. Ryka took a deep breath and walked up to this man. "Sir, If you have a moment I would like to ask you a question. Do you happen to have a ship and need a hand to help? I need off this planet and have no money. I am willing to work but I need off world fast."

Chiren looks up at the stranger who had approached him. Chiren takes his question into consideration. He also sees the look in the sentient's eyes as they passed over Chiren's meal, which had just arrived.
"You look hungry." Chiren pushes a seat out invitingly and nods to the sentient. "I probably could use an extra hand on my ship. Take a seat, and we'll talk."
Ryka sets next to the man. "Thanks you sir. You have no idea how much this means to me." Ryka kept looking forward at the man "My name if Ryka. Yes I am hungry but not for food. I just ate not too long ago. I haven't yet found anything that makes me not hungry. Now if you don't mind me asking when will you be departing?"

Chiren tilts his head slightly. Straight to the point; very similar to himself.
"No worries. I know what it's like to be looking around for something and finding it difficult to get anywhere." Chiren starts eating his meal and pulls down his cowl to show he is comfortable with the situation. "As far as I know, I may be on the planet for a little while. I have to talk to the Chancellor of the Republic if I get the chance. So departure is debatable."
Chiren looks at the sentient with interest.
"If I may ask, what species are you? I don't think I have come across your species before."
Ryka looked the man up and down "I ... I ... I don't ... I don't know. I have lost my memory. I only have a few clues but can't find anyone who know who they where. I am trying to find that out." Ryka looked around and his stomach knotted to the point of almost doubling over. "Would you mind if I stay on the ship?"
Post by Warlord Chiren Guinn on May 15, 2012 21:11:23 GMT -5
Chiren is taken aback by the statement. This man had no memory of who he is? And he's here on Coruscant? Feeling bad for the man, Chiren nods and looks the sentient in the eye.
"I can't have someone I don't know on my ship without my own supervision, I apologize." Chiren thinks for a moment, "Tell you what I can do though, you come with me. See if it helps with your memory. My ship is waiting for me in orbit because it's a little big. Once I've cleared up my business here, we'll head off world. Do you remember your name?"
Ryka still looking around he looked strait at the man and sighed "I can understand not wanting me on the ship. I go by Ryka. Thats the name my owners gave me back when I first woke up. They told me it was the name on my uniform. I guess I was in some form of military. When I left the gladiator arenas my old owner told me the took me in a the middle of a battle. I am the only survivor of the battle. The battle was during the sith wars. That is ... that is all I know." Ryka held his stomach in pain. "I will follow you though."

Chiren shakes his head.
"Well, you are not owned by anyone any longer. And you can 'Accompany' me. I'm no slaver or owner." Chiren pulls up a sleeve and shows Ryka a burned scar on his upper arm. "I've been through that life too. I will help however I can. Welcome aboard the Guinn's Dynasty crew."
He holds up a hand courteously to shake the sentient's hand.
"Oh I know I am not owned anymore. I earned my freedom by killing everyone they put in front of me." he said with a slight smile on his face while shaking the mans hand. "I said I would follow you." Ryka lifted both of his sleeves showing a lot of scars from the matches he had been in. Also showing the new blaster wound on his arm. As he lifted his arms you may also noticed his weapon of choice at his side. "Though I have no real mark of slavery I still have plenty of scares. I know I may look young but I am older than my looks. I have to be at least 100 years young. Now you point the way."

Chiren nods as he sees the scars. Ryka's life had clearly been just as difficult as his own. After finishing his meal quickly, Chiren leads the way towards the Cantina exit. Suddenly, a pair of Weequay step in their path.
"You thought you could steal from the Hutts and get away, didn't you?" says the larger Weequay.
Chiren shrugs at Ryka and looks at the Weequay.
"It's worked for me so far. Perhaps your Hutt masters should consider an end to slavery, but since they obviously wont, I think my actions are well justified." Chiren says with a smile.
He brushes his hand across the lightsaber clipped to his belt.
Ryka steps in front of his new friend and states "This isn't worth your time friend. This will make fast work." At that moment Ryka put his fist in the chest of both the Weequay in his way then a fast spin trip with his leg. "Remember I owe you and this is what I do best." Ryka said with a big smile.
Post by Warlord Chiren Guinn on May 15, 2012 22:16:08 GMT -5
Chiren looks at the fallen Weequay and chuckles at Ryka's statement.
"Don't worry about owing me anything, Ryka. I'm happy to have the help and to help others." Chiren steps over the unconscious Weequay and hails a cab. They get into the cab and head for the Senate Building.
As they go, they pass the decimated Jedi Temple.
"Hard to believe that the Mandalorians would just attack the Jedi like that..." Chiren shakes his head at the sight.
"I know. That was the last place I had to look for clues. I have no idea where else to look. For some reason I keep having dreams of these .... Mandaliorians. I think I have done battle against them in the past. I think I have killed many of them. Of course I have also reamed of a little green creature with a light saber as well. So I really don't know." Ryka said wincing in pain. His stomach was in such a knot that he had never felt pain like it before. For some reason seeing the spot where the temple was made it worse for him. "Do you happen to have any hard drinks on you? Its the only thing that takes the pain away."
Post by Warlord Chiren Guinn on May 16, 2012 11:34:22 GMT -5
Chiren looks at Ryka.
"So you remember having a bad past with the Mandalorians. I see." Chiren sees the Senate Building as they approach, "Well, the best way to find things out is to face them. Maybe finding a Mandalorian will help you."
"Yes you are right. But how am I to know if it is a dream or something from my past? My main focus is to get off this planet for now. Which brings me to you." Ryka was looked as if he was looking into the past. So far away he my never get to see it. "So what dealings do you have with this man you want to see?" Rykka said shaking off the look.

"I'm actually here representing the Tion Confederacy. I am attempting to negotiate a kind of no-fire agreement."
The cab slows to a stop and they step out onto the landing platform. Chiren looks up at the colossal Senate Building and swallows. Dealing with criminals was easy; this was a new experience for him since he had never even known a politician before Aslan. Chiren lowers his cowl and walks towards the building.
*Sacrifice makes his way to the Cantina, He had finally decided it was time to get some air. Sac looks around then enters the cantina. For a moment Sac had to wait for his eyes to adjust to the dim lights. Then he heads over to a small table and orders a Corellian Ale. Sacrifice sits back and thinks about the years of excitement then sighs. He missed the good old days. But on another level he didn't. After a moment Sacrifice starts making a small bomb. He doesn't realize he's doing so but he doesn't care. Whats the point anyways? *
*Sacrifice finally looks at the finished product in hands then smiles. Boy did he have a nasty surprise for Coruscant atleast in the name of Science. Sacrifice pulls out a tub from his pocket and attaches it to the bomb. In the tube was a blue liquid. As peaceful as it looked the effect could be for the worst. Sac then plants the bomb under the table then orders another ale. all around him he could see people have a great time with their friends and coworkers and others gambling their money away. Sac thinks for a moment to himself, Nobody is going to expect their reality to get altered for a brief 10 minutes as they try to kill each other any means necessary then soon they would be back to normal.... atleast the ones alive and Sac no where in sight. Sacrifice sighs still in conflict with the notation of such a dark deed but he was getting a decent pay check from this. This might be his ticket back to the good ole days.*
*Sacrifice Finishes his ale and pulls out a piece of paper to make sure the range on the chemichal reaction to the oxygen in the facility would only be contained to the building and nowhere else.... After all it was just a test on a moderate scale. Sac grins then sets the timer on the bomb for 30 minutes. He then orders another Ale. If only the Jedi knew what he was doing now. Oh the trouble he'd be in but no... things were not the same and probably will never be the same. He sips on his ale slowly enjoying the environment for now every once in awhile glancing down at his Chrono. Boy it would be great if the cop came in to this place as the bomb went off... More confusion maybe they might try to go after Sac? No they wouldn't after all Sac was known to help people... not kill them in the name of Science.... But then again some forget Sac used to be a Moff in the Empire. Oh well another thing about the past Sac relished. Maybe one day he can have that power again.*
*Sacrifice checks his Chrono one more time then sends a quick emergency transmission to the police in the area. He then put his data pad away and pays the tab then leaves as there is 5 minutes left on the timer. Sacrifice knew when the bomb goes off there won't be much of a boom. just a small pop as the fumes from the chemical in the tube heats up and interacts with the Oxygen around in the cantina. Sacrifice then makes way out of the district and to a ship that will be leaving the system.*
Police arrive on scene fully expecting some sort of criminal activity, but to their surprise they find the Cantina in it's normal state. They however do find a young man and charge him of battery and assault, also for disturbing the peace. but before they go a small pop can be heard. As officers turn around they see a small blue droplets on people near by the source and a faint blue wisps of smoke. Suddenly the smoke is everywhere but nobody cares. They just feel happy.... Then hunger starts to kick in along with unruly rage. As people turn and look at each other they begin to move slowly then suddenly officers start firing at fellow officers or Civilians. Small surveillance camera's show people ripping of limbs and ears, The snapping of necks or the the sudden cries of death could be heard on the audio. And then as quickly as it started it stops. Most folk wounded or dead. The survivors then pass out as a result of a unforeseen side effect.
* Due to mechanical problems to the ship Sac intended to board he finds himself back in the entertainment district but a far more classy side apposed to earlier today. Sacrifice finds a nice little Cafe and sits down ordering a small steak. Sacrifie watches the croud as the move about minding their own business. Sacrifice felt really bad about the incident he caused earlier but he firmly believe that all the fingers would point at the scientist who hired him since he to precausions to make sure he was dressed like them when the went out. Sac now wore is normal attire and most would reconize him from the Holo net from way back when.*
*Sacrifice slowly finishes his little snack keeping an ear out for the daily gossip. 20 minutes pass by rather quickly. In fact when Sac looked at his Chrono he was rather surprised. He quickly pays the bill leaving a small time for the waitress then leaves the Cafe. As Sac was walking about to his left appeared to be a rather high class kind of facility. Instantly Sac pivots left and attempts to enter the build moments later he is halted by to muscular beings. Instantly Sacrifice knew he had to pay to get in. Sac quickly pays the entrance fee then heads in. In the lobby it self was really nice. So nice in fact Sac let out a low whistle. Now he understood why the charged for people to get in, this place was squeaky clean. Sacrifice makes it out to the main room the goes to the bar. Around him were many sentients. However a he spotted a Wookie. Why would a Wookie be in this kind of place? Sac shrugs then turns to the Bith Bartender and orders a Correlian Ale. He then Scans the room finding the kitchen easily . To his right was a door in which Sac assumed led to the back Stage.*
*Sacrifice turns his head to the stage as a performer makes her way on stage. Then she begins to sing, Instantly he is drawn into the song... As he listens he feels a heavy pang in his heart. He makes his way to one of the tables then sits down. He borrows his head into his arms on to the table. Sacrifice wasn't cut out for this kind of work. Once or twice he thought about turning himself in but He thought against it. This probably would mean his life. Sac takes a deep breath and continues to watch the performance.*
*Sacrifice quickly straightens up and looks around to see if anybody whitnessed his moment of weakness. Again his eye catches the wookie but this time Sac was in the line of sight of the Wookie. Sac quickly stands up and goes to the bar.*
Sac: "Bartender this place seems a little familar to me however I have been to this distract in years. Who used to perform here?
Bartender: Aw I remember you slightly... Little Youngster that seemed to cause a bit of trouble. *he chuckles* Yes you should remember this place in fact one one of your Friends used to perform here. You know you really should get Cait to come back. She brought in great revenue. Not that our new performers don't bring in money. It's just she was one of the greatest in my opinion.
Sac: Cait? Oh yeah.....*he quickly trails off* I guess I should one of these days... Thank you.
*Sac sits down at a different table but this time in the back corner where he has a view of all the exists to the room. He then silently tunes out the world remembering a painful past as far as want to go back to his glory days.*

Not until Sac moved did Arya the Wookiee even notice him. She gives an inward shrug at his stares she knew most people had never even seen a Wookiee let alone seen one in a high-end place like The Starlight Club. She was getting used to the stares of those were new to the club. The regulars knew she was one of the Club’s finest musicians and the singers fought over who get her as an accompanist when they appeared at the Club. But when he moved to another table she gives an inward frown. There was something vaguely familiar about him. But she gives a shrug it didn’t matter probably someone who had been a patron of somewhere she had played before. She walks toward the backstage area in preparation for her next performance. She wished that Cait would visit she missed her friend. She knew that Cait had made it off of Coruscant safely and she had heard from her a couple of times since then so she knew Cait was doing fine but Arya still missed her.

Sac in suddenly blinks remembering the wookie. She was one of Cait's friends but Sac never really spoke the the wookie. He was always chasing down women of his own species.
"Oh my... I'm an idiot." Sac stands up shaking his head then goes to a well familar office. Sac talks to the owner for several long minutes then the owner nods. He and Sac head o The room suddenly becomes quiet.
Owner: Lady's and Gentlemen, It's my pleasure to introduce a good friend and possible a bit of fortune of luck. Those of you that are wondering you may remember a young rascal causing all sorts of trouble in the past. Well this is the same lad but grown up. Ladies and Gentleman give it up Sacrifice Milla
"It's been a long time since I've been up here but I think it's time to pay a little debt I owe to this establishment from a small crime in my Youth. I am Sacrifice Milla and I am going to perform a song for you that really means a lot to me." *Sac nods to the building manager as the the building manager does the same in greeting and pleased to see Sac had not forgotten his promise. The music starts and Sac starts to sing*
Captain Sam Milla: So I made promotion. No idea when I sew on Staff Seargent but super happy right now. Chiren, your promotion for Sam is kinda like a sign from the universe that something was coming my way. lol
