    Something's wrong with the galaxy and I don't know what it is. It used to be better, of course, it did, or so they say. In the golden age of legend, with the Republic and the Jedi Order, when there was enough to eat and enough hope, when people could lift their eyes and see beyond the horizon, beyond the blazing light of two suns. Children were born happy and some even grew up rich. Now? Wretched, baking desert. Sand people, Hutt crimelords, no account smugglers. And to make it even worse, kriffing pod racing. And you, who are you? This is what we've got, yes. What are you going to make of it?

Plans to lure Sith Adept Song to a to duelling ring in the Upper City of Taris don't start well as she senses Vann's disturbance of the Force and sends Tie Fighters after the team.

View our camp map! https://imgur.com/a/8Sgqro5 The text from the Many Little Gifts ritual: 17:50:01 From Pax (he/him) | Drew (he/him) to Everyone: The dust that was once me looks like snow drifting across the path, glittering slightly in the pale light from the stars. 17:50:07 From Moraine (he/they) / Nathan (he/him) to Everyone: My little bunny nose is packed full with dirt, and every breath I take brings it deeper into my lungs. 17:50:55 From Moraine (he/they) / Nathan (he/him) to Everyone: All the twigs and tree limbs around look pale and brittle like old bones. 17:51:33 From Pax (he/him) | Drew (he/him) to Everyone: You find a small bottle of a silvery fluid, corked and sealed with wax. 17:52:15 From Moraine (he/they) / Nathan (he/him) to Everyone: Here is my gift: a rock the size of a large bird egg, too sharp to hold without cutting your fingers and palms. It has a secret inside. Just for you. 17:52:51 From Moraine (he/they) / Nathan (he/him) to Everyone: My little bunny nose twitches as I hold back laughter. 17:53:09 From Pax (he/him) | Drew (he/him) to Everyone: The trees seem shiver with delight or disgust. 17:53:44 From Moraine (he/they) / Nathan (he/him) to Everyone: It's not where you meant to end up, but you can smell the quarry is nearby. --- The Gauntlet Calendar is part of the Gauntlet community.
