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.

SPACE DIVE – Episode IV

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

First Order fascists have seized the galaxy,
and their new Supreme Leader appears to be a childish egomaniac.

After the death of Cantina-regular Han Solo, rumors emerged that his fellow war hero (and Jundland Wastes moisture farmer)
Luke Skywalker returned to stand against them.
Some say he was a ghost, a mirage.
That he lit a new spark, that the old Rebellion is reborn.

Not everyone agrees with these events, however.
It is a period of civil war among us, and these are strange times.

A troubled tale of Solo’s youth looms ahead, inevitably filled with lies and deception. Many prefer his past remain a mystery.
Others hope for an escape from saga politics or religion.

But is it true, as some say, that the Force never belonged to the Jedi, that it lives in all of us? Is there a growing Resistance out there or just a delusional band of activists? Is endless star war our lot in life?
Republics, Empires, and Orders come and go.
Bloodlines don’t matter much in the Outer Rim.
You want to make a difference?

Go Force Yourself.
