Secure Storage Facility

For many beings in the galaxy, life is a transient thing. Job opportunities can take them from planet to planet, often with little or no notice. When those individuals need a place to keep their belongings, they can look to a facility like Tonis Luruk's.

The Facility
A meter-thick, four-meter-high duracrete wall surrounds the facility. The only entrance is a broad gate in the front of the facility (1); it boasts an alphanumeric keypad for customers to access, along with security cameras. The main office (2) is a low building in the front of the compound. In addition to Luruk's desk (A), it has a break area for the workers (B), a room for storing records (C), a storage closet (D) and a refresher (E). Workers who are not on patrol can monitor the security cameras in the break area.

The storage units are divided into buildings based on size. Small ones (3) are four meters square and of a matching height, while medium (4) and large ones (5) have dimensions of six and eight meters, respectively. All of the buildings require a common code for their entrance doors, along with individual codes for individual units. Bypassing a lock requires a hard Skulduggery check, and there's always the chance of being seen on the aforementioned security cameras.

Detailed below are some of the characters who can generally be found in the facility.

Tonis Luruk is a respected business-being in the Ugnaught community. While that might not seem like a lot, he sees it as his duty to look out for his fellows, and to keep the trust of his clientele. To those ends he is a no-nonsense individual. He suspects that employees of the Hutts move illegal goods through his facility, but as long as they don't cause trouble for him, he doesn't pry into their business.

These Ugnaughts are loyal to their boss, Tonis. They have comfortable, if not too exciting, jobs, and they take seriously their responsibility of keeping the facility secure. In their downtime they enjoy a hand of sabacc in the lounge, or watching a swoop race if one's being broadcast.

Using the Storage Facility in an Edge of the Empire Campaign
This location can be incorporated in a campaign in many different ways; a few of the possibilities are detailed here.
  • The PCs could be hired to retrieve an item from the facility, perhaps requiring them to scope it out before attempting the retrieval.
  • If the item is especially valuable, there could always be rivals who hope to acquire the item before the PCs manage to do so.
  • If the facility suffered an infestation of vermin, Luruk could hire the PCs to help eliminate it.
  • In the aftermath of a break-in, Luruk could hire them to recover an item before its owner realizes that it's been lost.
  • During a visit to the facility, a combat droid being stored in one of the units becomes activated and chaos ensues.
