Finished
[COU] Tipping Point: Evade and Resist (Fiction)

Prompt

The Kiast system has erupted into a state of civil war, with you and many others caught in the middle. As the blaster bolts start flying, how do you react?

  • You were surrounded by Vatali citizens—nobles, Quorahi, or perhaps a mixture—when the Dominion’s mercenaries showed up with ‘arrest warrants.’ How did you lead the civilians to safety? You did lead them to safety, right?

  • Sky Breach Base and Trepus Mine are defended by the Jedi and the O.E.F. Only a fool would attack such a well-defended installation. Of course, fools or not, someone’s doing it. Describe your contributions to repelling the attacks, whether through force, cunning, or diplomacy.

  • Say what you will about the Sephi, but even their prisons are pretty. Well, for prisons. You’ve been captured by the Vauzem Dominion somehow. Describe your attempts to resist interrogation or escape confinement.
