Starport Saturday: Mechs, Bots, and Droids Discount Emporium

Starport SaturdayA105

Mechs, Bots, and Droids Discount Emporium

This little shop is crammed full of all sorts of little robots and their component parts. While nothing on the shop floor is actively blackened with blaster marks, nothing looks like it came right off the factory floor either. The display window contains a variety of climbing and flying robots that carry or otherwise display the various deals available within.

For anyone looking for an inexpensive bot (slightly used) or some spare parts to fix their old droid (parts refurbished in-house), or a basic servicing (oil bath extra) this is the place to go. The owner operator is a grizzled, skinny human with a scruffy white beard and breath that smells of actuator fluid and breath mints named Randal. Everyone entering the store will receive the same enthusiastic greeting along with a handshake or a clap on the shoulder. He will often ramble on about the latest rare droid component he’s managed to acquire, or is looking for, and always stands just a little too close.

Anyone who comes to his store more than once will always receive a better than fair deal, and anyone with a rare bit they’re looking to offload can usually get a fair or better price.

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.
