Priority Contract New Contract [Classic] Wanted: Crunchy the Rancor

APPREHENDED


The Huttese news broadcast, after the usual flashy advertisements and celebrity gossip, would display a paid-for announcement from a particularly campy Hutt. A purple feather boa sparkles around his neck whilst he strokes a deadpan feline in his arms, the species selectively-bred beyond recognition.

Harsh stoicism whittles away as he describes his plight. The deep voice cracks in pitch. Glowering eyes turn misted with tears.
The Hutt is soon blubbering and squeezing their irritated cat for comfort, bawling over the feed of an old gladiatoral video.

The intent is clear even to those who don't speak Huttese, the feed changing to a shaky cameraman catching a scant few seconds of something massive lumbering by an alleyway in a run-down Hutta settlement. This Hutt wants his pet back.


WANTED ALIVE AND WELL
Target: Crunchy the rancor + Hutt cartel ((Ingame name will be announced on holotracker + impside))
Known Associates: Occasionally picks up interesting or delicious-looking sentients.
Reward: A whole bunch of credits. ((I will part with a [Appearance: White eyes] unlock and 500k credits))

Reason: During a turf war on Hutta, the renowned gladiator slayer Crunchy's leash was dropped by a handler in the chaos and the rancor escaped to wreck havoc upon the swampworld. Blobloh the Hutt is paying a handsome sum (By resource crisis standards) for his beloved pets' return.

Bonus Reward: Positive exposure as a hunter from Blobloh the Hutt.
Bonus Conditions: Crunchy coming out of the encounter unscathed.

Client: Blobloh the Hutt.
Receiver: Blobloh the Hutt.

Additional Information / Other Persons of Interest:
Crunchy's rampages have included Biguuna, Jiguuna, the swamps themselves and scaling spaceport buildings.



PvP Enabled: no
If you have selected wanted dead; do you understand that this may and can result in character death: no
Do you consent to character death: hecking no
Perks Acquired: --

Out-Of-Character Information:

  • Theme song/fight track.

  • The idea with the customized moveset (See post below) that the mark will use in addition to the /rolld20 system is that it's a fight made purposefully difficult because it's a rancor basically.

  • Tone-wise this won't be a very serious encounter but shh spoilers.

Though reluctant to do work for a Hutt due to their unscrupulous reputation, Blobloh's display of emotional vulnerability--combined with the opportunity to learn animal tracking techniques--convinces up-and-coming Jawa mercenary Yitol Pag'oz-Bendak to take the contract.

Due to lack of knowledge regarding Hutta itself, however, Yitol will be teaming up with Valkine Thuul to hunt down the rancor.

Gladiator-slayer, Tenth-time Champion in the Rings, Slave-Recycler, "The goodest boy", Crunchy has earned many a title but answers to 'Crunchy' and 'who's the goodest boy'. He is the admitted favourite of his owner Blobloh, his Hutt lifespan allowing them to enjoy decades together. Blobloh is guilty of anthropomorphosizing his pet to an extent, replaying footage of his golden years to keep his fearsome reputation alive and well. Unfortunately this has fed into mass panic across Hutta in the aftermath of his escape when he pulled forwards to sniff a tree and his handler lost their grip on the leash. Blobloh's insistence that harm not come to his pet further complicates matters - an Imperial ally's offer to simply launch an orbital bombardment strike resulted in the sudden appearance of Blobloh and a swift backhand.

Many hunters are keeping their distance even considering the pay. Conventional Gamorrean guards have found rancor-hide painstakingly blaster-proof when they do come across him on Hutta. What's worse, civilians panic as the behemoth lurches into settlements. Until Crunchy is captured the unrest, the property damage and the desecration of fire hydrants shall continue unabated.



Moveset

  1. Five-minute break - Crunchy, if not successfully struck this round, will restore one healthpoint. If successful this consumes his attack moves this round.

  2. Crunch time - Crunchy becomes mildly annoyed with a party member and attempts to hit for 2 damage before returning to deal with the party. This does not consume a standard attack.

  3. Curiosity - Crunchy seeks to pick up an associate hunter, not damaging them but effectively stunning them for three rounds. If successful in the absence of other hunters, he will lower the individuals' roll results by 1 for that round.

  4. Palpable disinterest - Crunchy does literally anything else, somehow performing an AoE that risks harming each party member. Absorbs his standard attack round.

Idesu finds a new pizza place online and tries to order a pizza. She fails, and assumes this bounty's meeting place is the address of the pizza place. She'll be along to complain soon enough, and she's bringing her sister, partner and her tall Lethan friend to do the talking. A whole entourage. She must really be mad at that pizza place. She might also be assuming she'll get free pizza if she shows up pissed with friends.
