Rants, ruminations, and rambling remarks from my mad, muddled, meandering mind.

From the Adventures of Darth Soffe and the Blueberry Kid

With the initial story completion for my Consular, Baldrvar, and Scooter's Jedi Knight, Vireena (one more notch in the Legendary belt), it is time to move back over to the Imperial side. I have completed all my imperial class stories, and only need Trooper, so I created a new agent to accompany Scooter and her last Imp, the Sith Warrior Soffe Sunfleur.
Soffe is a Zabrak, mostly Dark, but not completely. After a series of misadventures on Korriban and Dromund Kaas (let's just say, people died), Soffe is rewarded with a sweet starship and an assignment to track down a mysterious Jedi padawan with a unique ability that might bring down Darth Butterball's entire spy network.

We interrupt this introduction with a reminder that the 7th(!) annual Developer Appreciation Week has started. As gamers, we are passionate about our pastime. Another group is so passionate about games that they became part of the industry that develops them for our entertainment. Though much of the time our passion spills over into criticism; members of the blogging community have set aside this week to show our appreciation for all the efforts of the development teams responsible for our favorite games. If you have a blog of your own, I encourage you to write a post or more this week, thanking the developers of your favorite games for all their hard work.
Cipher Agent Arándano is a member of the Chiss Ascendancy, on an exchange program with Imperial Intelligence. his first assignment is a mission to guarantee the supply of refined shvash gas produced by Nem'ro the Hutt on Nal Hutta. Along the way, he poaches anarchist liquidator Kaliyo Djannis from Nem'ro's gang. Following the destruction of the Imperial dreadnought Dominator by the Eagle terrorist network, the newly designated Cipher agent is issued a luxury yacht starship in order to have more autonomy in tracking down their cultish leader. Like many of his kind, Arándano is reserved and diplomatic in his interactions with non-Chiss. When push comes to shove, however; you don't want to be on the wrong end of this agent's HK-55 model sniper rifle.

I haven't worked out Arándano's full Chiss name yet, because I don't want him to be a member of one of the major Chiss Ruling Houses of the Rebellion/New Republic Era, partly because it seems silly that the same families would be in power for three to four millennia. But I'd prefer to have some anchor in SW lore. His name is Castilian Spanish for "blueberry." Soffe's name was inspired by Sofia the First, a Disney Channel animated series that is a favorite of our granddaughter.  Just last night, Scooter and I finished our tour of Dromund Kaas and received our ships just before heading off to bed. More to come.
