Starport Saturday - Two Moons Mining Company

Starport Saturday B04

Two Moons Mining Company

In spite of it’s name, TMMC does far more than just mining. In fact, the mining portion of its operations makes up a very small part of the companies overall activity. The majority of TMMC’s work deals with exo-archeology. As such their offices are located all over known space, and they are constantly buying, selling, trading, transporting, and hunting for relics of past civilizations.

This particular branch of TMMC is set up to sell decorative semi-precious stones and natural mineral formations in a small retail area. Past that is a slightly larger office area/storeroom. While the front of the store does bring in some minor income, the real business takes place in the office. Ships and crews are hired to do a wide variety of tasks: from basic courier work to sneaking into forbidden locations looking for ancient relics. Generally the better a crew does at the easier (and less profitable) tasks, the faster they get offered the more difficult and better paying jobs. Sometimes, due to a lack of available crews and a highly limited window of opportunity, untested crews are offered the toughest jobs.

Ra’zal Thravas is the manager of this branch of TMMC. He is a tall near human man, with rusty red skin that is adorned with numerous tatoos, thick black hair, and striking blue eyes. He wears a leather harness and numerous pieces of jewelry made from the stones and minerals mined by TMMC. Ra’zal is generous, friendly, and a little bored. Because of this he had begun to drink, even while on the job.

As an ongoing project I’m stocking the map above with shops and characters, making it something of a mini-campaign setting. However, it’s also want to open to you. This is your chance to be a guest blogger here at Tower of the Archmage! All you need to do is to pick one (or more) of the different stores, and write up a description of what type of store it is!

How to get involved: Leave me a comment or an e-mail letting me know you want to join in, and pick a space. Write your post (or posts if you’re feeling ambitious). Send me your post via e-mail, and I’ll get it up, probably on a Saturday.
