Wow!  Very nice.

This reminds me I have loads of conversions and head swaps to do, to make my figures more desert-appropriate.

Jungle ruins by Oscar Falk, on Flickr

The Crustaceans living close to Blackstair's Bluff had been nice enough to give him a drawn map, since Global Positioning Systems were unreliable in these parts. He had spread the word that he was interested in information about ruins to explore. The Crustaceans were constantly scouting the jungles around their dwellings and had already supplied Guhn-Deen with a couple of maps leading to ancient ruins. Those expeditions hadn't yielded any astonishing results, but he had higher hopes for this one. The Crustaceans had told him that these ruins differed from the others. They had told him that these ruins were dangerous. Haunted.

Guhn-Deen spoke into his PDA:
"D-N, I'm near the site marked on the map. Positioning data is unavailable at the moment, but the scanners are picking up some kind of energy signatures just up ahead. I'm going in."
As he entered the clearing, a realization came over him. These ruins did differ from the others he'd seen. They weren't supposed to be here.

As Guhn-Deen went over the crumbled buildings with his scanner, data came trickling in. "D-N, there's a lot of interference here, but these buildings are definitely of United Government design. It's not making any sense... If my scans are correct, these buildings were destroyed several centuries before this system was officially discovered, back during the Age of Isolation... D-N, this doesn't add up!"


What? A patrol? by Oscar Falk, on Flickr

Something was suddenly off. The sounds of the jungle had petered out, and in the silence, Guhn-Deen could hear a new sound: The whirring of ancient servos. As he threw himself into the cover of a ruined building, he caught a glance of the units producing that whirr. Dull metal bipeds stalked the ruins, recognizable to anyone who had travelled through United Government space: HK-series droids.

These robots were old and worn, they moved stiffly and their sensor packages must have lost most of their functionality, since the droids continued patrolling past Guhn-Deen's hiding place. He waited until they had passed, then bolted to another ruin, where he could survey the droids' patrolling route from the second story. Soon, he had identified a pattern and could escape unharmed into the jungle...
