Another fan fiction based off of a roleplay performance done January 2015. Our post production process is long to complete due to limited writers (and abilities).
This story is about a painting of cultural significance with a sordid past. It is an enchanted evil painting, entitled “VISAGE PRESAGE” painted by JAYNOR OF BITH for RUGESS NOME, also known as DARTH TENEBROUS who was the Sith Lord Master of DARTH PLAGUEIS. The painting has a secret and THRAWN has discovered it to be a treasure map. THRAWN wants the painting for the treasures, but painting has been held by a private owner and is considered priceless.
The private owner died and now it is up for auction, but it will fetch more credits on the Black Market if it were stolen.
In this roleplay performance, Lothal is holding the auction. The Star Wars Rebels need the credits and enlist LANDO CALRISSIAN’s (tw) support to steal the painting for Black Market buyer. The Rebel that knows best about painting is SABINE WREN (fb)(tw)(g+)( sabinewren77).
Tell us what you think? Honest opinion. What can we improve?

I cleaned up for this? Oh my all this art.
Yes. Enjoy the art, my fair bird. You may never see some of these again. Take a
look at this one.
That’s no Jaynor painting. That’s holographic arts. I didn’t know this was a
Of course, not
just one piece is up for sale at an auction. How about this painting?
A reprint of “DANCING ON WATER” by the Mon Calamari Opera? A bit
adult. What are the Imperials into these days?
Someone up there has a heart for history I suppose or trophies of destruction? I
can’t call it. I hear they recently scoured a dying planet for art and culture
before completely destroying it.
(Balks downs a glass of champagne)
Imperials. You could say that again!
Try not to make eye contact with the snooty people here, okay?
You’re making me nervous. Let’s separate and as my body guard, you’re in charge
of those invites.
Alright, Let me see if I can find
where they’re hiding this Jaynor of Bith painting.

WREN EXAMINING IT.
(Speaks to YOGAR LYSTE and AGENT KALLUS follow him into the auction)
The “VISAGE PRESAGE”. A rather curious name. Tell me, is that girl lingering around the masterpiece familiar to you?
Vaguely familiar, but I can’t place her sir.
Lyste, check her invitation. But she does looks familiar
Excuse me miss. May I see your invitation?
Uh huh. My bodyguard has it. He’s that Stormtrooper over there…
Stay here, Miss, while I inquire of him. Excuse me TROOPER, I must view this

MY MAKER! THAT’S IT! The JAYNOR OF BITH “VISAGE PRESAGE”

Uh…So sorry…Ack…my Lord…Admiral…Sir…
It’s quite alright. Are you enjoying the auction?
Plastic papers are shuffled between LANDO CALRISSIAN and STORMTROOPER

Oh yes, sir. It is right here. She is PRINCESS SELEN YASOR daughter of the
distinguished LORD EN SABA YASOR of HELSKA IV
You will have to come with me until I can verify this invitation
Who’s the blue face?
How rude TROOPER! ADMIRAL I am the PRINCESS YASOR SELEN and I would be having a
good time if your henchmen would UNHAND ME!
It’s alright, Lieutenant. I’ll be with her…
YOGAR LYSTE, AGENT KALLUS and LANDO CALRISSIAN disperse.
Sir, you’re a CHISS…err…Imperial Admiral and you like art? I mean, do you like art?
Of course I am. Who would dare impersonate an Imperial officer? And I do enjoy
art quite a bit. Though, very few truly understand art. For instance, what do
you think of this piece, the “VISAGE PRESAGE”?
This piece? Odd direction by JAYNOR…I mean the colors are dulled for the usual vibrancy he uses and the patterns are more still in design. The highlights and midtones seem strange or awkward for his protest pieces in the past.
I believe JAYNOR created this piece in his younger days. Its patterns are odd,
but they do mean something. What do you think?
I don’t know, it could mean he was far off? You know old artists.
