Just to round off the Star Wars last week, I can report on the successful repatriation of ambassador Bol to the Rebel Alliance. I knew you would all be relieved. Discovered quite safe in his Carbonite casing he was released in time for the end of the one off adventure.
Next week should see the start of DnD, Changing Breeds and Feng Shui.
Carbonite casing was originally designed for gas transportation as the material can absorb vast amounts of volatile atmospheric substances whilst locking them in an unreactive and stable form. The chambers themselves can also stack efficiently and operate in built repulsors for mobility.
It also happens to be an ideal form of transport for captives as the molecular integration process has a stasis effect on organic material. Painful though.
However, do not confuse Carbonite with Samsonite, another transportation and packaging material that is also used for moving bodies around.
