Space Dive – Episode V

21+
costumes mandatory

Friday, MAY 3rd + Saturday, MAY 4th, 2018
Step into a galaxy far, far away as the Tangent Gallery again becomes an immersive recreation of the Mos Eisley Cantina!

It is a lawless time.

Crime syndicates, corporations, and bandits compete for resources –
spice, booze, hyperfuel, weapons, death sticks, harlotry and medicine.

The Empire is too incompetent to reign us in and too cruel to bother.
Corruption runs rampant, from the Senate to Imperial High Command, local checkpoints and everywhere in between.

Fascist tyranny breeds opportunity in the Outer Rim, and
greed can be a powerful ally.

While the local garrison has seized our theater,
officers can be bought and stormtroopers are outnumbered.
If the time comes, they may find it harder to hold than it was to take.

This is the underbelly, the spaceport hive where all the gangsters, thugs, trash, and scoundrels of the galaxy come to gamble, find work, and drink to oblivion when they can’t. Here you can bargain for whatever you desire, and business is booming.

Just watch your step, this place can be a little rough.

EPISODE V: SMUGGLER OASIS

Blue Milk cocktails. No droids. No blasters!
