Noirvember 2016 Challenge – 0003
Okay, crack open the whiskey, it’s time for tonight’s:
This time, add in some of those Millennium Falcon ice cubes, we’re getting intergalactic with our noir for 0003 in:
A festival of death, ascension, and rebirth looms over Nula Pontoom, a small slum on Coruscant, home planet of the Empire, as the locals use it as an excuse to allow their abusive tendencies to escalate for two days.
Palanda Ormell returns, in shadow, to infiltrate the festival and extract the murderer of a high ranking Empire official. However, she is shocked to discover her father hiding in Nula’s back alleys because she’s assumed him dead for half her life.
Yet here he stands, ready to reconnect, because he’s been stabbed. By a lightsaber. Which he now has. And he knows the price on his head just trebled and he’s going to need his daughter’s help to get off Coruscant and away from the people who want that lightsaber back, because it’s the murder weapon in the case Nula is trying to solve.
The Festival of Sins has begun, Nula, may it not eat your soul before dawn.
