I can't think of anything witty to say. Got Chili Dogs on the brain. So in honor of Chili on a cool night, I give you SPICY COMMENTS! (which may or may not be all that spicy. It upsets some people's stomachs, so I kept it at sort of spicy)

Okay, that's kinda cool. Now if that just worked outside GS...

@bright_ephemera, alaurin: Miss Rok definitely will have to watch her back...Kaliyo is not one to let such a thing go lightly!

@DSM, given the minimal backstory given on Miss Rok, she has probably heard all those words and more in her journeys. She's too professional to have a cussing contest with Kaliyo (nor would I write such a thing!), but Kaliyo has met her match...or has she?

@Adwynyth, that is a cool feature. Akaavi may be joining my Trooper's starfighter roster effective immediately–assuming I'm actually willing to divulge the coins it will require.


@alaurin, the bank scene is one of my favorites on Nar Shaddaa...and "dumb, ugly, and dead" is my favorite Corso line! Great work!

Kabe......Most of your Remi and Scourge stuff give me the urge to laugh until it hurts......which I do. Great job!

Yoshi.....I like Merok doing his spy bit. Got the old James Bond theme playing in my head now

Week of 11/22/2013
Thank You – Gratitude is a big thing. People give thanks for gifts, social niceties, kind words, significant favors, for being offered company or for being left alone. Sometimes there are specific holidays or times dedicated to gratitude, and sometimes it just comes up on the way. What is your character grateful for? Do they admit it?
And, as ever,
Night of the Living Prompt: Keep on using any prompt you like! Check out the list at
This week's featured NotLP:
(Un)invited Guests - Things get complicated when you're visiting someone else, or have someone visiting you. Even if you want them there! Of course, things are extra complicated when your guest is someone you didn't want or expect to come around.

Ok it seems I can't stay away. It occurred to me that most of what I've written here was later in the story arc, but not so much of the beginning. So, a Thank You. So appropriate for this next week, and a thank you to Bright for coming up with it.

Prompt: Thank You
