X Play Opens Kessel Gate

May 5, 2013

Reporters of the Galactic News Network visited the newly build X Play offices in an asteroid.

Kessel Gate

Kessel Asteroid Field:Installed in an asteroid, the new X Play Office contains the facilities the entertainment organisation is used to. Now called Kessel Gate, this was formerly Asteroid 227, a silver mine near located on the far side of the Pit Asteroid belt. With the support of the Kessel gouvernement, X Play redesigned the place. The area is famous for spacers trying to beat speed records.

Within the asteroid, a large docking area is on the middle, with a few services on the edge. When arriving the visitor can watch the efforts made for the security. Securing the building is an important point for the company, and they’re even helped by the Kessel authorities.

The Rocket Down

The entertainment facilities are accessible though an old mining lift. First, a wide cantina, called the Rocket Down, paying homage to a cantina in Bakura. A little above was installed a showroom, called the Starlight. Many of the future events of the company will take place here. X Play activities are currently paused, but they will resume their schedule in the future. They want to run a new Miss Galaxy season and Galactic Swoop Races, for instance.

The company was formerly based in Nar Shaddaa, but met hostility from some tier and preferred to withdraw to something more secure and assuredly neutral. Hopefully in a place they control, they’ll be able to focus to entertainment and avoid troubles.
