Title: Relaxing Some spoilers
SWTOR: Canned Response
Svein walked into his ship, The Darklight, happy to be away from the hustle and bustle of the Dromund Kass spaceport after the long night he had discussing his sister with the Council. They hadn’t officially recognized her as a former Child of the Emperor for those were rumors only, but they had taken her prisoner officially for saving Chancellor Janarus from Darth Tormen. Svein knew however her former allegiance had been the true reason for the arrest. But, now Svein was tired and truthfully sick of the Dark Council. It would be good to see his friends back on the ship again.
Svein sealed the door to his ship quickly punching in the security code on the luminous red control panel to his right. Within a moment the panel turned to a neon green, the loading ramp retracted back into the ship, and the steel door closed blocking out the sounds of the spaceport. Svein tiredly walked into the main room to see Quinn and Peirce playing a game of holochess in the lounge. It looked like Quinn was winning however he saw that Peirce was waiting to make a move that would change the game. Svein sighed as he braced for another inevitable argument about “battle strategies” between the two soldiers in which Svein was often stuck in the middle because both Quinn and Peirce tried to get him on their side; a strategy which has never worked thus far.
As predicted Peirce made the move and Quinn stood up in shock. Within moments Quinn was spouting how Perice’s Shocktrooper couldn’t jump Quinn’s Sith at a diagonal angle and go on to jump Quinns Royal Gaurd. Peirce retaliated by saying that Quinn was a downright cheater. Svein watched in silence silently chuckling at the pointless argument. Suddenly, both Quinn and Peirce turned around to see Svein standing next to the doorway.
Quinn was the first to try to sway Svein in his direction with the usual his usual bow. Peirce merely grunted as he watched the Captain make the first move.
“My lord may I ask your opinion on something”, asked Quinn in his most persuasive and mannered tone.
“I’m not even sure this is an opinion”, said Peirce shrugging slightly,” My lord this is hardly something that would concern you.”
“It most certainly would”, said Quinn motioning for Svein to come see the board.
Svein moved swiftly to the gameboard, Quinn and Peirce making way for the Sith Lord. Svein leaned forward on the table to examine the game more closely. The game obviously was going in Peirce’s favor and was he was probably going to win, however, Svein decided for his own enjoyment, tie up the game giving Quinn a” little push”.
“Um I think you two missed something”, said Svein placing Quinn’s Acolyte in a place where he could take out Peirce’s Royal gaurd.
Peirce and Quinn came over and examined the board intently. Suddenly, Quinn saw the move and smiled, satisfaction etched in his face. Peirce stood shocked and surprised that he did not see Quinn’s move. Within moments Peirce and Quinn were arguing again about how Quinn must have rigged the game in his favor. Quinn protested complaining as he made his way to the cockpit. Peirce simply went to his quarters shutting the door in a huff. Svein stood over the chess board laughing so much that he kneeled at the holographic board lightly pounding his fist on the table.
“So, hows it going my lord”, asked Vette curiously.
Svein turned around to see Vette carrying a shopping bag filled to the brim with clothes and Jaesa stood beside her sporting a new pair of earrings.
“Where have you two been”, asked Svein grinning.
“Teaching Jaesa the pleasure of shopping”, said Vette looking at Jaesa.
Jaesa pulled back her short brown hair as she replied;” I never thought I would be a part of such vanities.”
Vette replied putting an arm on Jaesa’s shoulder,” Vanities is such a “smart” word. I like to call them” Fun things”.”
“Fun”, replied Jaesa curiously.
“Next time we go to the Cantina”, said Vette facepalming.
Svein laughed heartily and then asked,” Would you guys like to finish a game of holochess”.
“Quinn and Peirce”, asked Jaesa curiously.
“Obviously”, said Vette taking a seat across from Svein.
“I’ll observe”, exclaimed Jaesa walking to sit in between Vette and Svein.
Svein watched Vette make her move and smiled. Let’s play he thought.
I wasn't exactly sure how spacechess went in terms of playing it but I thought incorperating it with Quinn and Peirce would be perfect considering their dislike for one another.
