Ooh, cool new scene, Lance! I just love all the debris (pizza box!), critters (lizard!), graffiti, etc. You've done a great job creating an atmosphere here.
Now, as for which way to take: I am leaning toward the tunnel. I genuinely think Crate wants to help us, and so far there haven't been any indications to the contrary. Also, like Ryan, I'm not so wild about risking a run-in with the Jawa and his cronies. However...
I can't help but wonder: Lance, when you said "right around the corner
" in your post, are you trying to give us a hint? If indeed you are, then we may not have to take the tunnel after all.
In either case, I agree that if it really is just the mask that the Jawa and friends don't like, we can just take it off. It's not as though there are any Boys in White in the vicinity to recognize us (knock on wood). As long as we actually get to the rendezvous
in the next scene, I'll be happy!
Now to address CHEWIE's point: Do you mean to say we should ask him how to use the tunnels to get to our rendezvous point with Blondie? (Without mentioning her, of course?) That's
the hangar we want to get to at present, not the one with Uncle Lance's ship on Level 40, right? Or is it not a hangar at all? I can't remember anymore...
Awaiting further bulletins with much eagerness! Thanks again, Lance!
