Weekly Anyport RP nights!

Starting on the 7th of February, there'll be weekly roleplay happening over at Anyport every Thursday at 7PM GMT throughout the month. We're aiming to do this one month at a time, so we'll give it a go now in February, then we'll see how we like it before deciding on a March renewal!



The planned schedule so far:
7th of February - Cantina Night
14th of February - Stunslinger Competition
21st of February - Cantina Night
28th of February - Market Night

Note: events on 14th and 28th will have individual posts.

For invites you can whisper:
Imp-side: Mave Baudric | Rep-side: Hamlen Pax

ANYPORT METOSP

... ... ... ... ...

Coming out of hyperspace and closing in on the shadowport, you get pinged with a pre-recorded message from Anyport Control, assuming you’re tuned into the right frequency. The voice coming over the speakers belongs to a man who seems to be on the verge of a headache, and is blaming you for it.

“Welcome to Anyport. Read me good and follow my instructions so you don’t kriff up: tap into frequency A-494-103-23 if you’re a visitor, tap into B-494-103-23 if you’ve got business, then have a word with whoever’s manning the tower. That’s usually me or my crew, so play nice if you want somewhere to land that piece of junk.

Got all that? Good. Traffic’s heavy today, so strap in if you’re a visitor. Business gets prioritized.”

There’s a pause, just long enough for you to think the message has come to an end, then it resumes after some muttering in the background.

".. uh-huh, right, almost forgot.. If you’re blazin’ in from Nar Shaddaa, get ready to be hauled away for a medical examination. Nothin’ too invasive, just a couple of checks. Make sure you comply, we don’t want to waste any charges on the stun batons, aight?

Aight. Have a nice stay now. Don’t fall off the skydeck.. Or do, just make sure to pay the dockin' fees first.”

With that, the message ends and the frequencies are transferred over to your ship. Welcome to Anyport indeed, hopefully there’s clear skies ahead.



OOC:

(Beep-bop-bump. Just a reminder that there'll be a little gathering at Anyport tonight at 7PM GMT! Come make some deals, play some cards, guzzle down some drinks and what-have-you! For invites, just look at the post up above.

Also, just so it's said: the METOSP is just meant as a bit of flavor text - You're just as welcome to come RP as a visitor and a business-person, and the medical checks are happening behind-the-scenes!)

ANYPORT METOSP #2

... ... ... ... ...

Zooming back into realspace, assuming you've tapped into the right frequency, you get pinged by Anyport Control with a pre-recorded message. The voice seems to all but sigh out with every word, with the occasional slurping of caff in the background.

"Welcome to Anyport. Look, I'll level with you, my love life's not too great. No, this doesn't have anything do with getting you a place to dock, but hear me out: if you're a woman in your 40s to early 50s, don't mind warts or have too expensive taste, hit me up at my personal frequency. If not, and you're just a visitor, go with A-494-103-23 or if you've got business go with B-494-103-23. You know the drill.

If you hear blaster shots in the distance, don't worry. We're just havin' a stunslinger competition today. Might be folks practicin', or you arrivin' while it's goin' down. That, or someone's been tryin' to skimp out on their docking fees. Either way, nothin' for you to worry about. Unless you plan to do the same.

Anyone comin' in from the Smugglers' Moon should expect a round of medical checks when they settle down. Traffic's hard enough to manage as-is, so spare us all some headache and come along quietly.

There's also been reports of patrols from the Mid Rim Trade Company sniffin' 'round the Teraab Sector. Been crackin' down hard on slavers lately, so, uh.. if you've got a lot of 'passengers' crammed together in your cargo hold, keep your wits about you.

Right then. Enjoy your stay, or don't. Just remember to fork over the credits when the dock master asks."

With that, the message ends and the frequencies are transferred over to your ship. Including the personal one, should the description strike your fancy.



OOC:

(The MEssage TO SPacers posts are only meant as bit of flavor-text and some on-arrival immersion to Anyport for the Thursday RP nights that'll be going down through February. You can scroll up for a look at the planned schedule for the month or read more about Anyport itself on the first page on this thread if you want to know more!)

ANYPORT METOSP #3

... ... ... ... ...

On the approach to Anyport and tuned into the right frequency, you soon get hailed by Anyport Control with a pre-recorded MEssage TO SPacers. If you've been around the block a few times before, the weary voice on the other side should be all too familiar.

"Welcome to Anyport. You might've heard rumors of new radio equipment being brought here and thought to yourself: 'Oh, finally, Abel Flench and Anyport Control's finally getting the upgrade they deserve'. But naaah, nah, 'course not, it's for some green-haired kark who wants to spout nonsense for all to hear from his lil' basement. Guess we're just not good enough, huh? Well, let me--.."

His tirade is interrupted by a meek, soft spoken voice, muttering something in the background. There's a long breath, some static noise.

"--.. Alright, fine, we'll just cut that part out then, yeah? Alright, from the top.

Welcome to Anyport. If you're just a visitor, use the frequency A-494-103-23, and if you've got business for the station, use B-494-103-23.

Traffic's been a bit more moderate lately, might be 'cause of those damned Mid Rim Trade Company karks on the prowl. Can thank them for quicker dockin', but also for your friends gettin' executed. You can decide if the price's worth it.

At least there's finally someone takin' the fight to them - Rumor has it that some pirate crew or another took out a whole convoy. Should expect them to double-down on gunships now, but at least someone took a bite outta 'em, yeah?

Last but not least, we're broadenin' our scope in terms of medical check-ups to avoid spreadin' of disease. Make sure you've got your papers ready, or be prepared to get hauled off and tested by our staff. The last we need is a plague on top of everythin' else.

That's all then. Any complaints can be brought to our offices, just climb over the railing of the Sky Deck and drop down, you'll find it."

The message ends there, the frequencies transferred on over to your ship and the shadowport is looming in the distance.



OOC:

Just a little (hopefully) immersive introduction to tonight's casual cantina night over at Anyport that kicks off in a couple of hours (see event calendar).

Nothing special planned for it, and it's going to be as eventful as you yourself make it. But hey, sometimes the scum of the slum needs to relax too, right? I hope to see you there!

ANYPORT METOSP #4

... ... ... ... ...

Per usual, you receive a pre-recorded message upon closing in to Anyport. Abel Flench, the man on the other end, sounds as bored as he does annoyed.

"Welcome to Anyport. Visitors, use the frequency A-494-103-23, if you've got business for the station, use B-494-103-23 instead. Traffic's pretty heavy, so if you're just swingin' by for a looker, you might as well fly a couple of rounds 'round the station. Gonna be a bit of a wait, there's plenty of merchant types about today.

At least there's more dockin' space now. A few ships have left, word got around that when the Mid Rim Trade Company karks were out huntin' slaver crews, they spread their fleet just a little too thin. Now, a few mercs and pirates have set out to hit 'em back while they're weak. Haven't.. Haven't heard from 'em yet, but I'm sure they'll be back soon. Have some hope, you kriffheads. Raise a drink to 'em tonight!"

There was actually something resembling triumph and excitement in his voice, before returning to its more neutral, kriff-my-life state as he continued.

"Also, Mave Baudric, the bossman of Swifty's Locker, has been asking for more security after a recent shootin'. If you've got a blaster, some spare time and need some credits, working as station security or a bouncer or whatever you're wantin' to call it might be somethin' for you.

The medical checks continue. If this is your first visit, expect to be hauled away for one. It's nothin' too invasive, just a check-up, a bit of proddin', some scans.. If you've been 'round a few times before, just make sure you've got your papers ready and kriff off so you don't clog up the line.

Clear skies, spacer."

The message ends there, the frequences are transferred to your ship, giving you a moment to chew on the news as you blast towards the shadowport. Or shrug your shoulders, because you don't give a kark.




OOC:

This just a lil' prelude to the Anyport Market Night, as well as some little updates in the daily goings-on of the station and surrounding area. As usual, the METOSP is just meant as some extra immersion, with some additional hooks sprinkled in.



Hope to see you tonight!

Anyport RP Nights II: Attack of the March

Thank you to all who came by in February! Here's hoping March will be just as poppin'. We've moved away from a purely weekly schedule, opting for bi-weekly cantina nights, hopefully with some fun little happenings sprinkled in between. As with February, we want to end the month with a Market Night. We'll give this a go for another month, then see how things work out when April rolls around. Happy roleplaying, all!



The planned schedule so far:
7th of March, 7PM GMT - Cantina Night
21st of March, 7PM GMT - Cantina Night
31st of March, 7PM GMT - Market Night*

*The Market Night will have its own post.

We're looking for more staff!
We're looking to expand the staff of Swifty's Locker with a few more hands.

If you've got a character who'd like to bartend in a rundown shadowport cantina or act as a bouncer and keep some order among local scum, contact me on enjin or Lance#7707 on Discord and we'll get talking.



Think something is missing?

If you yourself want to see more of 'this' instead of 'that' happen on the station, you are always welcome to host events or introduce concepts of your own, as long as it fits the spirit of Anyport Station. If you have an idea, you can contact Acid on enjin or Mibs#8304 on Discord for a talk.

ANYPORT METOSP #5

... ... ... ... ...

On the approach vector to the hidden Anyport Station, you get hailed with a pre-recorded transmission from the Traffic Control Tower. Those familiar with Abel Flench and his MEssages TO SPacers might find themselves somewhat surprised to be greeted with something resembling cheerfulness.

"Welcome to Anyport! You'll receive a couple of frequencies soon. If you're just a visitor for a pit stop, use A-494-103-23, if you've got business for the station, use B-494-103-23.

Let's start off with some good kriffin' news for once. The locals who went off to take a slice outta the Mid Rim Trade Company have won several battles, and their latest report says they're headed home. In honor of their recent victories, Hamlen Pax and Mave Baudric of Swifty's Locker are hosting some sort of celebration party down in the cantina. Half off on Quanya, Jet Juice and Reactor Cores."

There was pride in his voice, clear as day, as he spoke of the victories, small as they might have been. He didn't let himself get too carried away however, and managed to tone it down to something more neutral.

"Speakin' of Mave Baudric, there's a need for more alcohol and foodstuffs for the cantina. If you got any or can get your hands on some, go have a chat with him 'bout it.

All Republic and Imperial folks are reminded that we're not beyond shootin' you down on approach. Fly no flags while you're here and save us some powerpacks while you're at it. So, if you're hearin' this and you're sittin' there with some insignia sewn into your jumpsuit, now's the time to rip it off.

Last but not least, medical checks continue as before. If you've had one recently and not been to either Nar Shaddaa or Lasupei Prime, just have your papers in order and you can wander 'bout as you please.

Clear skies, spacer."

With that, the frequencies are transferred on to your ship, and you are free to approach the shadowport and request to land.

OOC:

Here's a prelude and a reminder about the RP over at Anyport station this evening! Keep an eye on the event calendar for the exact time. Just a little ol' gathering with some opportunities for business (at least for smuggler and spacer types) and casual cantina fluff. Welcome to all of you!

ANYPORT METOSP #6

... ... ... ... ...

Stars turn to lines, darkness dotted with bright spots becomes a blue tunnel, and a good while later, you find yourself in close proximity of Anyport. Tuned into the right frequency, your ship receives a pre-recorded message from the station's Control Tower.

"Welcome to Anyport. Visitors use the frequency.. Doesn't kriffin' matter. Nothing matters anymore."

There's something that might have been a sob, a soft voice entering the soundscape, the rattling of something or another, then a thump. Gone is the grumpy, bored voice, replaced completely with a soft-spoken one.

"... We ask that any visitors to the station stay clear of the private crew quarters and the surrounding area. There is a ceremony there today for all who were lost in the recent Mid Rim Trade Company attacks. Many sons, daughters, parents and even grandparents have left loved ones behind, and so a time of mourning is in effect.

We remember: Elain Untoph, captain of the Delaylah, father and husband. Your Quanya won't be forgotten.
We remember: Deriani Lon, captain of the Miss Adventure, grandmother, wife and dear to us all.
We remember: Kal Flench, navigator aboard the Miss Adventure, son and diamond in the rough, taken too soon.
We remember..."


The message continues like that for a good long while. Two frequencies are transferred to your ship, and you can only guess at which one to use - And even then, it seems you can't get a hold of Traffic Control. Nor can anyone else from the looks of it, as the landing zone and flight traffic is utter chaos today.

OOC:

For once, the METOSP isn't a prelude to an RP night/event. It is in part in response to this rumor, as well as the aftermath of an open event hosted by Acid last night.

ANYPORT METOSP #7

... ... ... ... ...

On the approach vector to the hidden Anyport Station, you get hailed with a pre-recorded transmission from the Traffic Control Tower. Those familiar with Abel Flench and his MEssages TO SPacers might find themselves somewhat surprised to be greeted with a loud, robotic monotone.

"GREETINGS BLINKING YELLOW DOT ON SENSOR SCREEN, POSSIBLY HARROWER CLASS DREADNAUGHT. THIS IS ANYPORT. IF YOU ARE A MEMBER OF THE EMPIRE SLASH REPUBLIC SLASH MID RIM TRADING COMPANY SLASH JEDI ORDER, WE SURRENDER UNCONDITIONALLY. "

There is a distant sound of a fist hammering on a door, but the voice pays it no heed.

"IF YOU ARE NONE OF THE ABOVE WELCOME TO FLYING DEATHTRAP IN THE CLOUDS PORT. IF YOU ARE HERE WITH CARGO PRESS ONE. IF YOU ARE HERE WITH PASSENGERS PRESS TWO. IF YOU ARE HERE WITH MILITARY GRADE WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION, PLEASE PLACE THEM IN YOUR AIRLOCK AND OPEN THE DOORS. MILITARY GRADE WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION ARE PROHIBITED ON FLYING DEATHTRAP IN THE CLOUDS PORT."

Pressing buttons appears to do nothing but restart the message.

"PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THE PORT IS BUSY DUE TO ITS IMMENSE POPULARITY AND A MARKET. PLEASE DO NOT SHOOT ANYONE OR WE WILL BE UPSET. THERE..."

There is a sudden crash, a few 'HELP, HELP, HELP's, and then a blaster shot. No sound but heavy breathing is heard for a few moments before:

"Shavit, he's sent it. Uh... I guess we should add the frequencies. Sorry about that... here, first frequency for haulage, second for visitors. Sithspit... how do we recall it?"

".. Kriffin' droid."


OOC

This just a lil' prelude to the Anyport Market Night. As usual, the METOSP is just meant as some extra immersion, with some humour sprinkled in.
