Arek moves down the tunnel for several minutes, finally coming to a T-intersection. Looking one way he sees a single door along the side of the tunnel. Looking the other way he sees three doors, two on the wall on the opposite side of where he's standing and one on the same side. The tunnel continues past the doors in both directions.

At that moment he detects three sentients approaching from the end with the single door on it.

[OOC: Are the sentients just walking down the hall, or walking towards him from the other side of the door? If he won't be spotted just by stepping out into the T-intersection, Arek will make for the doors to his right. He'll try to duck into the first one that doesn't have sentients behind it.]

Arek ducks into the door nearest to him, not sensing anyone inside. He finds himself coming face to face with an old, rusted out droid with six grated cylinders in it's chest. The grates are all open. Looking at the droid Arek finds it's actually missing pieces and may have been used for parts. In fact looking around Arek discovers various bits and pieces of droid parts around this room, all of which looklike they could be used by this droid, making him wonder exactly what someone would have to scavenge off this unit. The room looks like it's being used as a droid parts storhouse.

Outside he hears the snuffling of Gamorreans. They come up the intersection and he can tell their more than a little agitated.


(OOC: The droid looks like this but without the weapon

)

Entering the room, Arek closes the door until it is just barely cracked. Turning to take a look at his hiding place, he stops short, almost igniting his lightsaber at the sight of the droid. Well hello there, Tin Man. Distracted for a moment, he wonders if its memory banks are still intact. Hearing the Gamorreans outside at the corridor's intersection, Arek creeps back to the door and peers through the crack, straining to listen in.


[OOC: Are there any air ducts Arek could wriggle into if he had to (assuming he has time)? Does Arek recognize the droid at all? If not, are there any identifying markings on it that he might be able to recall later? If they start speaking (well, if they start talking in anything other than Basic or Rodese), Arek will drop Life Detection and Danger Sense and raise Concentration + Translation to try and understand what they're saying. Are any of them carrying non-melee weapons?]

The Gamorreans get closer to Arek's position and Arek calls on the Force for a little help.

"Gartogg said there were three he could see before the collapse," the first one says. "Maybe four."

"He badly wounded?" the second asks.

"Dead," the first replies. "He almost escaped the collapse. Too many were there when the rubble started down the ladder. Gartogg was fool enough to try and jump down it, but he owuld have died anyway if he had remained up with Tront."

"Their just Outcasts, they were lucky," the third puts in.

"We found three rakghoul, slaughtered with no Outcast victims near them," the second states. "And what of Snorg, Voort, Ughok, and Rog. They were found in the upper level, stripped of armor and weapons. At least what armor that may have not been destroyed. You think Outcasts did that?"

"Upworlders?" the third asks "We have had run ins with them before. Some could want to cut into the slave trade."

"Maybe Guardians," the second one says. "They have been acting strangely. Maybe they have begun slaving."

"Or newcomers to Outcast ranks," the first says. "Fighters. Tough enough still to be a threat ot our operations."

"Leaders will decide. Maybe we will move on their village at last," the third says, sounding exicted. "What of these rooms?"


(OOC: Arek only sees axes on them. The droid he doesn't recgonize, in fact he's never seen anything like it. The only identifying marks are the ones already mentioned, six grated cyliders in the chest with the grates wide open. There's no air ducts present, but Arek might be able to hide behind droid parts.)

So taken is he with this ability to understand languages unknown to him, Arek almost has trouble paying attention to the content of the conversation. This is still one of the first times he's had an opportunity to use the ability that Reylan had taught him "in the field", as it were. Why is it that Gamorreans never seem to work for the good guys? Arek wonders silently. His snout wrinkled in disgust at the thought of taking armor from giant dead porcines. Ugh. You'd have to be pretty desperate for armor, he muses. Did these grunts work for the Pirt Orn, or was this a different outfit entirely? What "operations" were they talking about? Slaving? Or something more devious? If he wanted to find out, he'd probably have to do more digging; these were clearly just the hired help. One thing at a time, he thought grimly. He had to get out of here before he could do anything, and he had to find those stranded Jedi first, and then get to that Pentag fellow before anyone else did.

It seemed that someone had been thinning the Gamorrean's numbers of late...which could turn out to be a double-edged sword. It would mean less Gamorreans to try to avoid, but it might also mean that they were more alert, or worse, actively searching for enemies in their midst.

"What of these rooms?" the third Gamorrean asks.

Uh-oh. Nothing. Nothing of these rooms. Arek reaches out to the Force again, taking a few moments to reassure himself. This is not his strong suit, but he endeavors to remain confident. Concentrating on the Gamorrean that had spoken first, Arek attempts to plant a suggestion in his mind. You don't need to waste time worrying about these rooms, you have more important things to do. Time to get going.

[OOC: Drop Translation, raise Concentration + Affect Mind (suction-cup-tipped digits crossed). I just realized that I assumed that these were hinged, basic doors. Is there anything electronic about this door or the door across the hall from Arek that would allow him to trap the Gamorreans inside if they entered? Is there a fire alarm or anything like that on a wall that Arek can see?

Somewhat less relevantly, what does Arek know about the Guardians?]

"Squeal, grunt grunt squeal snort grunt squeal squeal," Arek hears the Gamorrean he takes as the first to speak reply. Then he hears a door near him being opened and the sounds of Gamorrean footsteps entering the room or jall or whatever is behind the door. They step back out and Arek realizes he failed in his attempt as a second door is opened.

(OOC: Failed the roll so Affect Mind didn't work.

As for the doors, their sliding doors like the first one you encounters. Touch plate and they slide open. As you were leaving it open a crack we'll say this one failed a little or something prevented it from closing all the way. Arek could try dashing out and and closing a door when their examining another room, hall, or whatever. Arek doesn't see any thing like a fire alarm.

As for the Guardians, Arek knows absolutely nothing about them. Folks in the Lower City never mentioned any Guardians.)

[OOC: Can Arek see the door(s) that is/are across the hall from him (through the cracked door that he is behind, that is)? If we say that Arek was heading "north" when he arrived at the T-intersection, there were two doors on the "north" side of this hall, and one door on the "south" side of the hall. Which side of the hall is he currently on, and which door did the Gamorreans already go into and check out? If he can see the door they are about to enter, he will wait until they do so, then quickly cross the hall and hit the touchplate with hist lightsaber hilt to close it, then activated the lightsaber so that the blade stabs through and destroys the controls for the door, rendering it inoperable. If he can't see the door they are about to enter, and can only see the door they've already gone through and checked out, he will use Telekinesis on the touchplate to activate the door again, hopefully making them go back and check it out again, after which he will quickly cross the hall and close/sabotage the door as above. If he can be successful in either of these attempts, he will then hit the touchplate on the door he has not been behind (that has no Gamorreans behind it), see what it is (hallway or room and what might be in there that could help him, if anything). If it turns out to be a room with nothing useful in it, he'll book it down the hall that they came from, with the hope that it will eventually lead him out of where he is. If there is a hallway or something useful behind the door, then we'll go from there.]

Not being able to see the other door Arek reaches out with the Force and tries activating the door he can see. He hears surprised squeals and the sounds of the Gamorreans moving to check things out. He gives them a second then slaps the touch-plate to the room he's in and quickly moves across the hall. One of the Gamorreans turns around just in time to see Arek reach the door and slap the touch-plate. He then quickly activates his lightsaber and slams it's tip into the touch-plate, showering himself with sparks.

Arek then moves to investigate the door the Gamorreans were just behind, finding another room about the size of the one with all the droid parts in it. On the floor are a couple of decomposing bodies that appear to have been there for a few weeks.

Arek hears the sounds of the door behind which the Gamorreans are located being opened and the motor forcing it back shut. He suddenly realizes that if they work together they might be able to force open the door and then he'll have three rather angry pig men to deal with. Looking down the hall in the direction they came in he sees the one door he hasn't checked yet. He could try investigating it or he could try running down the tunnel in ethier direction before they manage to break out.


(OOC: The blue marks the doors with the slight bit of yellow marking the door behind which Arek found the droid and droid parts.

Heart pounding, Arek tries not to wretch at the sight and stench of the decomposing bodies. Gathering himself, he quickly bolts down the hallway from which the Gamorreans had originally come. Coming up on the last unexplored door, he slaps the touchplate. Come on, be a way out of here... he thinks, glancing back towards the trapped Gamorreans.

[OOC: If it's not a way out, Arek will keep going down the hallway (heading "west") to try and escape that way. If it does look promising, he'll head through the door, shut it, and kill the controls on this one, too (I hope these people have homeowner's insurance!). If possible he'll try to confine the damage to the inside of the door, so that it's not readily apparent from the hallway that the door is now inoperable.]

[OOC Edit: Oh, and thanks for the visual! They are always greatly appreciated! Smile]

Arek discovers the door leads to a small room that is filled with pipes and valves. It looks as if the room is actually meant for opening and closing valves. He runs down the hall, beginning to wonder what kind of of a place this is. He rounds a corner and keeps going a few paces until he discovers what looks like the sight of some recent fight. There are the bodies of three dead creatures he's never seen before, they look as if the've been hacked to pieces. Turning to his left he finds the body of a dead human in a room where the sliding door has clearly broke down in the mostly open position. Meters down on his right he notes another doorway and straight ahead is an open doorway the appears to empty into another of the massize circular rooms.

With increasing alarm, Arek continues down the corridor. This place keeps getting worse all the time. Glancing back behind him, he makes his way toward the doorway down the hall.

[OOC: Pausing before hitting the touchplate so he can try to raise Life Detection and Danger Sense, using Concentration for both.]

Arek approaches the closed doorway and opens himself to the Force. Immediately he senses eight being beyond the doorway and can tell that at least half of them is not Force-sensitive. The other's he can't be sure about. He doesn't sense any imminent danger, but with the run ins he's had so far he can't be certain opening the door won't cause him any trouble.

(OOC: Arek has both Life Detection and Danger Sense up)
