Star Wars: Destiny Manifested

The Story So Far...

Brought to Entralla for disparate reasons, Juris Varga, R2-Q5, Gand of Gand, and Verk Mesqen all found themselves in need of work. Begas Tok was only too happy to provide these desperate people with an opportunity. A ship to call their own. Home. Transportation. Place of business. The Noculent was all of these.

For the past six months, the crew of The Noculent has been working together as a close crew and extended family. Taking whatever jobs they can find to keep them in the air, with a few on the side for Begas Tok to help pay off their sizable debt.

About a week ago Tok put the crew of The Noculent in touch with a “fixer”, Kavin Rel. He had a simple smuggling job for them. Meet him at Cloud City of Bespin, pick up a shipment of rare ales and spirits, then deliver it. Easy money.

The Noculent made the trip to Bespin in good time and now her crew awaits Rel at the arranged cargo warehouse in the upper levels of Cloud City, content that everything will go according to plan…

Crime in the Clouds

Most fixers tend to cause trouble. It’s just a fact of the galaxy. Kavin Rel was apparently the best you’d ever met at it. Of course, it cost him in the end. To his credit, Rel showed up on time and with the crates of ale and spirits you were promised. Unfortunately for him, so did a group of assassins.

As his body hit the floor, still smoking from the deadly blaster bolt that had scarred his chest, Gand was already lining up a shot into the dark rafters of the warehouse. The glint of a sniper scope was the only clue Gand had as to the whereabouts of the killer, but Gand made the shot count as Gand slid into cover behind a stack of crates labeled, “Dehydrated Nerf Milk.” Despite the gands lucky shot, a return shot erupted from the darkness, clipping Verk‘s arm. The bounty hunter quickly joined Gand behind cover and joined him in firing at the hidden sniper. Meanwhile, Juris, thinking of the job, grabbed the repulsorsled controls and began moving it toward the cargo speeder. R2-Q5, always quick on his treads, made his way to a nearby terminal and began working to gain access to the warehouse’s systems.

As 6 thugs crossed the warehouse floor, both Gand and Verk continued to exchange fire with the sniper. Juris stayed with his idea of moving the sled, while R2 finally was able to gain access and flood the warehouse with light, exposing the barabel sniper’s exact location.

Once exposed, the barabel decided his high ground was no longer safe and began making his way down the gantry crane, eventually coming face to face with Juris. R2 quickly attempt to take control of a load lifter that was nearby the closest group of thugs. Although unable to drop the cargo upon them, the shifting crates were enough to provide enough of a distraction to provide Verk the perfect opportunity to drop a frag grenade right in the middle of the three men. It went off with devastating effect, instantly killing two and pusng the third to the edge of death. Gand seeing the battle well in Verk’s hands, turned to follow Juris. As Gand rounded the corner and skid to a stop next to the mechanic Gand saw the sniper, now on the ground, and instantly reacted by raising his rifle and putting the barabel down for good. The three remaining thugs, terrified of the hunter and his grenades, turned and ran down an adjacent aisle to find the cargo.
The dying thug, a rodian, was able to use his last breath to line up the most accurate shot of his life, connecting with Verk’s chest. In excruciating pain,Verk dropped, his only option to wait for an ally to resuscitate him.

A few aisles away, the battle was going much differently. Despite a few lucky shots from the assassins, they were no match for Gand and Juris. The most telling moment of the quick firefight was when a well placed shot from Juris instantly killed a twi’lek and the dying alien’s death throes caused his blaster to discharge. Directly into the abdomen of the man next to him. From there it was simply a matter of cleanup. One final thug, one unconscious bounty hunter, and a sled of cargo.

After loading the crates and blasting out of the warehouse, the chance to breathe easy lasted mere minutes before a pair of the Bespin Wing Guard’s cloud cars pulled alongside the speeder and demanded you follow them to a security platform. Reluctantly capitulating the crew was immediately disarmed after landing. A quick search of the speeder and its contents revealed that the fine ales and spirits were in actuality a load of glitterstim. Led to the nearby security office and left to stew in a starkly oppressive interrogation room,the crew was surprised when a Sector Ranger entered and introduced himself a Marek Quay, the Ranger for the Anoat Sector. After some mild questioning, Quay admitted that he was less concerned with them than finding who was controlling the spice ring. He offered a deal. Work with him, find the person in charge, or…spend a long time imprisoned.

The crew didn’t have to think for long before taking the deal. Quay provided 5,000 credits for emergencies and investigation expenses, a micro-transponder, and his Holonet comm code along with orders to find out where and when the shipment was to be delivered. He also provided some information about the assassins from the warehouse. They were members of Brotherhood Mortalis, an expansive mercenary group known for an extreme intolerance of failure, loyalty to the contract, and thoroughness. Despite their reach, he was unaware of any presence on Cloud City. His suggestion was to determine who would hire them to kill Kavin Rel and you by extension.

The crew first decided to discover who had hired Rel, and where the shipment was destined. Hoping to find useful information in his apartment, R2-Q5 sliced the lock while Verk distracted the superintendent. Quickly gaining access, R2, Juris, and Gand spent about half an hour searching the fixer’s cluttered apartment. They found several useful bits of info, including the name of Toydarian on Vanqor. Weeko Neeks, a middleman for Muraga the Hutt, was expecting the shipment in 7 days. The other piece of information was related to a number of death threats Kavin had received over the past month advising him to discontinue his relationship with Weeko Neeks. These comms were traced back to a user named “Stim” using a public terminal.

Next the crew went after Brotherhood Mortalis. R2 was told by a contact that the Brotherhood’s handler worked out of a seedy Sabacc bar called The Skifter. Arriving at The Skifter the crew was unsurprised to find the mercenaries with the run of the bar. Pointed to an over-sized nautolan named Pit Duall, the crew approached without a clear plan. It was obvious, both to them and to Pit. After talking in circles for a few minutes Pit finally admitted that a huge human who called himself Stim had taken out the contract on the fixer.

The crew reported what they had learned to Marek Quay, who arranged for the shipment to be delivered to a secluded cargo platform. Arriving shortly prior to dusk,the crew was only slightly surprised to see three large humans step from the shadows. What surprised them was the bio enhancement apparatus that increased the men’s mass substantially. Luckily, the crew was ready for the ambush this time. The three humanoids grabbed cover and started opening fire on the enhanced soldiers, but the astromech, always a daredevil, decided to use the speeder as a weapon and rammed one of the soldiers head on. Over the next few seconds a fast but savage fight broke out. Both sides scored impressive attacks, including a few masterful blaster shots to disable the bio-enhancement units. However, the soldiers were able to brutally injure both Juris and Gand with deft vibroblade work. Ultimately the crew was successful although the cost of victory was high. While catching their breath a security force, alerted to the blaste fire, arrived led by Quay. After searching the soldiers, some interesting information was uncovered. These men possessed tattoos typically seen on Imperial soldiers and were in the possession of a communiqué from Stim. The message included the ambush location along with a directive to “return to Vanqor when the job is complete.” In addition, the crew determined that the chemical used in the injection system had the smell and sheen of glitterstim.

Quay then told the crew to take what they had learned to Vanqor along with the glitterstim and find the leader of the spice ring. He reminded them that betraying was a terrible idea, unless they wanted all of their dirty secrets and history to catch up with them.
The crew then loaded The Noculent, prepped for take off, and began plotting the course from Bespin to Vanqor. The nav computer says it will take 5 days to reach Vanqor, but they have no idea what they’ll find when they get there.

Pulling the Ears off a Gundark
HUNTING GUNDARKS!

After arriving at Vanqor the crew made contact with Weeko Neeks and arranged to deliver the goods to Muraga the Hutt‘s landing platform. While approaching the rendezvous point you learned that Vanqor was in the midst of preparation for The Gundark Open, a hunting competition held annually. Weeko, upon receipt of his goods, was more than happy to tell you about the Gundark Open and his employer’s hunt team, the defending champions. Quick thinking by Gand and Juris gave them the time to install a homing device on the contraband glitterstim before handing it off to Weeko. This would allow them to follow the goods from a safe distance. Weeko was also convinced to arrange for invitations to Muraga’s festivites for three of the crew, leaving Verk to sneak aboard the luxury liner among another group of hunters.

Once aboard, the crew was impressed by the extravagance of the Hutt’s party. The ship’s ballroom was decorated with expensive silks and the tables were full of decadent food and drink. The nobles, merchants, and hunters milling about became an excellent source of information and the crew successfully plied them for dirt on Muraga, his hunt team, and the Gundark Open itself. While Gand, Juris, and R2-Q5 gathered intelligence, Verk noticed a hulking waiter that matched the description of Stim. Juris and Gand followed the large man out of the ballroom and through the servants quarters to a small storage area where they witnessed something unexpected. Stim and his soldiers were mourning the death of a friend, who apparently died due to a lack of “juice.” After a near disastrous encounter with the soldiers, Juris and Gand reunited with R2 and Verk in the ballroom with a new lead to follow: the ti’lek majordomo’s terminal. It could be used to locate the exact coordinates of the spice delivery.

The crew crept through the ship until they found the quarters of Muraga and his majordomo. After a quick and literal job of breaking and entering by Juris, the crew gained access to the Commander’s Quarters. Juris and R2 quickly set to work slicing into the majordomo’s terminal while Verk watched the door and Gand looked for the most easily pilfered piece of art. The two at the terminal were able to access the coordinates before being locked out of the system. Meanwhile Gand, with Verk’s assistance, disabled the alarm system on one of the valuable statuettes and dropped it into R2’s hidden compartment. With the vital information in hand they made their escape, tangling with a few of Muraga’s guards on the way out.

The next day the crew discovered that in order to gain entry to the Open they needed to raise some capital. The 5k from Marek Quay along with the 2k from the delivery payment, still left them over 3k short. R2 was able to use his underworld contacts to locate a fence, named Creeg, who operated out of a small tourist shop in one of the smaller nearby lodges. Once the crew established their reason for being there and after a slight “misunderstanding” with Juris about his shop droid, Creeg took Gand, Verk, and R2 to the back of his shop for real business. Verk engaged in some very savvy and uncharacteristic negotiation and got Creeg to pay out 3,500 credits for three stolen Imperial carbines and the statue. This pushed them over the 10k needed for entry with a few credits to spare.

The next morning saw the crew lined up, along with the dozens of other teams, ready to begin the hunt. Another team pointed out Muraga’s huntsmen. A dangerous looking rodian and two gamorreans. When the hunt began, Muraga’s team immediately headed away from the majority of the hunting team’s speeders. Using the coordinates acquired on Muraga’s liner, the crew piloted their speeder directly to the meeting place, a cave complex towards the heart of the preserve. Knowing they were early the crew managed to find decent hiding positions around the cave and the underground stream that bisected the cavern and wait for the hand-off to occur. Twenty minutes later, the rodian and his team arrived with the crates of stim and were met by a six man squad of Imperial Stormtroopers. The payment for the stims was a live albino elder Gundark. In the midst of the hand-off, Gand and Verk noticed Stim and his soldiers attempting to sneak up on the group by the stream. Unfortunately, so did the rodian. All hell broke loose. The huntsmen began attacking the stormtroopers and Stim’s soldiers. The stormtroopers opened fire on the gamorreans and the crew. Luckily for Gand, Juris, R2, and Verk, Stim’s soldiers didn’t initially know of their presence. After a brief but violent firefight, the only people left standing were Stim’s men and the crew. Gand, Juris, and Verk managed to disable the bio-enhancement units on the soldier’s chests, causing debilitating withdrawal and pain.

Then Marek Quay arrived, wearing the uniform of an ISB captain. Along with a full battalion of stormtroopers. He coldly executed Stim’s soldiers, Rix and Garn, leaving only the crew and Stim alive. He quickly explained that without their help he never would have been able to track down Stim and his men, escapees from an ISB experimental soldier program. He then took the entire crew into custody along with Stim and loaded them all onto his shuttle.

The Cost of Betrayal
Nobody knows the trouble I've seen...

After three days of hyperspace travel, with no contact with their Imperial captors, the crew was delivered dinner and a datapad. The datapad contained a message from Muraga the Hutt, detailing His Excellency’s plan to have them freed from the Imperial frigate Valiant and to deliver the saboteur Stim to him on Vanqor. After lights out, the cell doors opened revealing an Imperial lieutenant, who pointed out the crews goods and told them they had about 30 minutes before anyone got suspicious and came to check on them.

Juris took the initiative and began slicing a security terminal, successfully downloading a ship schematic along with discovering the location of both Stim and The Noculent. The crew began making their way toward the detention area that held Stim, utilizing the stalking expertise of both Gand and Verk they quickly and quietly traversed the corridors of the Valiant. Upon arrival, the crew saw a small group of Stormtroopers standing before the entrance to the detention block. R2-Q5 rolled forward, taking advantage of his inconspicuousness to gain access to a security terminal which allowed him to send the troopers a false message, diverting two to another area of the ship. Verk, Gand, and Juris then went down a side corridor with the intent of flanking the lone trooper and quickly dispatching him. Unfortunately, Juris stumbled over his own feet while rounding a corner drawing the attention of a stormtrooper sergeant in a side room. R2 once again was able to provide the required distraction.

Once the humanoids were in place, R2 rolled up to the solitary trooper in the detention area drawing his attention and allowing Verk to sneak up and bash him over the head with the butt of his rifle. Combined with a vicious stab of Gand’s vibroknife, the sudden ferocity of the crew’s attack instantly won the skirmish. Dragging the stormtrooper’s corpse into the cell block behind them, R2 quickly found and gained access to Stim’s cell. The soldier was clearly in severe withdrawal and had little to no memory of recent events, but the crew seemed intent on helping, so he accompanied them.

The crew then made their way through the Valiant, stopping to make escape preparations. First, Juris disabled the docking clamps of an entire squadron of TIE fighters, ensuring at least 12 less TIEs in pursuit. Next, was a trip to a munitions depot to acquire the ordinance to disable the port banks of tractor beams. Finally, the crew was able to rig a remote triggering detonator with R2 and place the demolition package in a power conduit that would cripple the tractors.

The crew then made their way toward The Noculent, discovering a handful of stormtroopers and marek Quay had emptied the ship of cargo and were preparing to engage the crew when they arrived. Convinced of their sneakiness, Verk led the way around the bay hoping to gain access to the ship before being noticed. They were wrong. Easily spotted by the stormtroopers, a firefight broke out and both Verk and Gand were severely injured. However, through some quick thinking and a bit of luck the crew was able to dispatch the troopers and board The Noculent.

Gand piloted the ship away from the Valiant and quickly charted a short hyperspace jump. When Gand engaged the hyperdrive however the crew heard the unmistakable WHIR WHIR WHIR of a malfunctioning hyperdrive motivator. While Juris and R2 tackled that problem, Gand noticed TIEs in pursuit and gaining ground quickly. He sent Verk to the turret and put The Noculent through her paces to evade the Imperial fighters. Over the next few minutes, the TIEs and The Noculent traded fire as they spun, dove, and weaved around each other. Verk managed to take out two TIEs before the combined effort of Juris and R2 repaired the damaged motivator and they all blasted into hyperspace.

During transit, Gand was able to sedate Stim and eventually get him to a point where he could talk. He told them of the Imperial Security Bureau’s experiment to make super soldiers, and how he and his friends volunteered, not really knowing what they were in for. Once they became addicted to glitterstim the only course before them was to get their hands on as much as possible. They thought that stealing directly from the drug dealers themselves would be the best option. After telling his story he succumbed, once again, to withdrawal and passed out.

Arriving back at Vanqor, the crew met with Muraga’s majordomo and delivered the unconscious Stim. The twi’lek expressed His Excellency’s gratitude and showed proof that he had made a sizable payment to their employer, Begas Tok, on their behalf.

What Muraga does with Stim didn’t really bother the rogues of The Noculent. They got paid, and that’s what mattered. Now they just need to lie low for a while and let the Imperial heat die down, but Marek Quay is still alive, and they have a feeling he is one to carry a grudge. For a long time.

Sup girl?

Part 1
After a few weeks of rest the crew got back into the swing of things with a simple delivery job for Begas Tok. Take water to Formos, deliver it to a human named Frint, and get out with out causing too much trouble. Sure. That’s possible.

Arriving in Formos Spaceport, the crew discovered the wiry man, Frint, already waiting for them. He took the shipment of water, thanked the crew, told them they could get some refreshment at Rii Jenks’ Cantina, then bolted. Although Frint was odd, the crew members had completed their job and were excited to grab a drink or two, before heading back to Entralla. Making their way through the congested thoroughfares of Formos Spaceport, the crew was struck by the aridity of Formos. This must be why the cool desert world would need imported water. At the intersection of an alleyway and busy street, the crew met Mama Nobah, a water vendor, with the “lowest prices on Formos.” Her prices were indeed low, and R2-Q5 (for some reason) bought two jars. They then continued towards Rii Jenks’ Cantina, but soon met a Tritonite missionary proclaiming the glory of Gactimus. As they grew closer to the cantina, the sound of a metallic voice was heard from a nearby alley. Investigating, Juris and Gand discovered a dismembered protocol droid in a trash compactor. The droid introduced himself as F9-B8, and told a tale of being attacked and left for dead over a day ago by humans who droidnapped his companion, an astromech, named R4-W9. He told them that both he and R4-W9 were manumitted by their previous owner on her deathbed, and had spent the past few years traveling the Outer Rim. R4 in particular had spent much time mapping the nearby Kessel Run and had accumulated possibly the most detailed and accurate astrogational information for the dangerous smuggler’s run. Juris and R2 collected all of B8’s pieces and took them back to The Noculent so Juris could attempt to save the droid at a later time.

Meanwhile, Gand and Verk proceeded on to the cantina. Upon entry they immediately saw a bounty notice for an Aqualish named Bandin Nobah. After ordering drinks and some inquiry into Dobah, a Devaronian approached and introduced himself as Snoo, an information broker.He provided the two with information about Bandin Dobah and even a Rodian bounty hunter who had been in looking for Dobah recently.

While, Gand and Verk got information from Snoo, Juris and R2 were making there way back towards Rii Jenks’ Cantina. On the way they observed some shady looking individuals loading goods onto a speeder down a side street. When questioned, these men told the man and droid to mind their own business. They continued on and arrived at the cantina as Snoo was finishing telling the others what he knew.

Soon a young rodian woman entered and approached the bar. Gand, taking an interest, went over and offered to buy her a drink. As Gand asked the young woman, Zukata, about herself the doors to the cantina swung open revealing three arrogant looking men, two human and one wee-quay. They swaggered in and made their way to the bar. The younger and smaller of the humans, noticing Zukata, began attempting to ingratiate himself with the rodian. Despite her obvious discomfort at his advances, the man continued until Verk stepped in and made it known that he was over stepping. The young man, who Verk had heard called Spir, looked as if he wanted to escalate the confrontation, but after a subtle shake of the head from the older human, backed down. The three then quickly finished their drinks and left the cantina.

Gand then continued talking to Zukata, learning as much about he as possible. She had left Rodia on a surveying mission. Her task was to get accurate and up to date information for inclusion in a rodian atlas of Hutt Space for use by bounty hunters. After some coy mentions of the rodian hunter the crew had learned about from Snoo, she admitted that he was her brother, Godon Nekatta, and had most likely gone after Dobah alone. During the conversation, Verk noticed a toydarian eavesdropping and when confronted the small alien grinned sheepishly and made his way toward the door. Verk, Juris, and R2 pursued stealthily, while Gand remained behind with Zukata.

Successfully tracking the toydarian to a small warehouse, Verk glimpsed the older human from earlier in the doorway. He crept forward to get a look into the building and overheard the toydarian telling the man, who he called Daro, that the crew was asking about Dobah and that the Rodian girl was Godon’s sister. Daro then told his men to get ready. They were going hunting.

Verk radioed Gand over his commlink and let him know that he was going to have company. Then covered R2 while the little droid broke into the warehouse. The safe house contained a number of couches and cargo cases, most of which were empty. R2 did find a locker that when opened contained 235 credits.

Juris, however, was elated to discover R4-W9 in one corner. Once he had removed the restraining bolt, the little droid told of his capture. R2 was able to access a computer that had been attached to the R4 unit, discovering coordinates for a small cluster of asteroids nearby and also a file named “Pass,” that when opened emitted a binary jumble of numbers.

Meanwhile, Gand had escorted Zukata to a nearby rooftop to await the smugglers he had been warned about. After a short wait, the group of 7 men approached the cantina. When they discovered the crew was gone, they spread out to search the surrounding warehouses.

Back at the warehouse, Verk realized that Gand would need help, so he sent Juris and R2 to see R4-W9 to The Noculent safely, then hurried back to the Cantina. Verk and Gand coordinated their attack and opened fire at precisely the same time, dropping two of the smugglers immediately. The others scattered and returned fire. Juris and R2 arrived just in time to swing the battle their way, providing the support needed to finish off the last of the assailants.

As the whine of the last blaster bolt faded, the sound of heavy boots could be heard in the distance and the crew knew it must be Imperial Navy Troopers coming to “maintain the peace.” Quickly searching the bodies and grabbing what they could in the time allowed the crew made a break for the space docks.

Once aboard The Noculent, the crew was able to take a moment to breathe. They now have in tow, a rodian girl in search of her brother and two droids, one of which is apparently vengeful and insisting that the crew help him pay back Dobah and his men. Add to that the fact that they just blasted 7 of his men and it seems the crew really only has one choice at this point: Bring down Bandin Dobah. Or die trying.

Hump Day
How do you shoot with a camel toe?

Verk’s Log:
My eyes darted about keeping track of my target, also making sure I wouldn’t be noticed. The sun glared directly into my vision obscuring the droid as I followed. He was quick, but I was quicker. I knew that he would be tough to follow. He was a top tier war machine droid. I’d heard horror stories about them in my early huntin’ days. I knew that if I wasn’t careful I was sure as dead. Things were still going to plan and that’s when I saw it. The droid rapidly approached his tier one scordo venom land speeder. One of the fastest land speeders on the market today. I knew I had to think fast. I quickly reached in my pocket and pulled out one of my sticky tracking beacons. I hurled onto the back of his speeder as soon as he started it up. Silly droid didn’t even notice. As he sped off I nonchalantly pulled out a death stick. I lit it and calmly thought to myself; I got you now, bitch.

My team slowly caught up to me as I had locked in on his location. They weren’t exactly the most skilled bunch, but they’re my crew and I’ll fight til the end with them. We tailed him all the way back to some warehouses. I knew that his speeder had an incineration function. And if I knew anything about war machine droids, he was sure to use it. I quickly climbed my way up onto a nearby building and fixed my gaze onto the droid as he was heading to another warehouse. I notified the crew and jumped my way down. His speeder was long gone by now, definitely incinerated. I stealthily followed him into the nearby warehouse and his whole team was waiting for us. I quickly dispatched the two war machines with well placed blast rounds. The third and fourth were a bit more tricky to take down. With some minor aid from my team I was able to sweep the field of them as well. That left us with only one enemy, the camel man. When I stepped into his office I found my mechanic where he usually is, in the corner whimpering. The Gand doing the same. I knew it was up to me to stop him at this point. I fired off a few warning shots and he surrendered immediately. The camel knew I wasn’t here to play games.

As I put the binders on him and got the rest of the team back in order, a smile crossed my face. I had somehow forgotten how good the thrill of a hunt was. It was good to be fully back in action, rounding up some scum for a few extra creds.

One Man's Trash
Interpretive DANCE!!

Dear Diary,

Today was a good day. I spent the early hours working on rebuilding one of the old droids I salvaged from our last job. I don’t know why Verk keeps saying these are top of the line. This model, while pretty impressive in its day, hasn’t been in production for decades. With a little more work I believe I can get at least one of them working again… I might even be able to add a few improvements. I would have gotten more done on it but everyone keeps asking me to fix their stuff. I don’t mind of course, these guys are my best friends. I’d do anything for them.

Anyway, we got word that a Duros named Banu was looking for some help. We needed the credits so we went to offer our services. Apparently Banu was a member of the crew of a ship named the Dawn’s Damsel. It had been taken to the junkyard planet of Korad and its nav systems had some astrogation data that would be worth a lot of creds to the right person. To be honest, I wasn’t paying too much attention at that point. All I could think about were all the droid parts that would be littering the ground on Korad. I’d be able to fix up those old droids in no time.

The trip there was pretty uneventful and we made pretty good time. The administrator on Korad, I think her name was Talure, searched their databases for the location of the Dawn’s Damsel as well as a speeder. Verk attempted to negotiate a price for the info. He seemed to be pretty good at it, I guess. While he and Talure talked, Gand motioned me over. He said that the information that we needed was just over in the other room on the terminal and that I should just go over and get it. Gand has yet to lead me astray so I tried to sneak over there. It really was a pretty good plan… except for the part where the door was locked. R2 helped with the lock but the door made a very loud squeak and everyone looked right at me. It… was… terrible… We ended up paying for the info anyway.

OH! THIS IS THE BEST PART! I FOUND AN ARM! No, no, no. Not a real arm, a droid arm. It will work perfectly with my restoration project. It looks like it’s from a FN-29 model. Fully articulating digits, dual hydraulic actuators, titanium alloy, and it’s in perfect condition. Well, you know, aside from only being the arm… I wish I could have found the entire droid. Oh well.

We got as far as we could on our speeder but salvage and junk blocked our path. We got out and went in one foot, when all of a sudden; more speeders sped up to us. An unsavory bunch got out and demanded we tell them what was so valuable about the Dawn’s Damsel. None of us were willing to give that up so they opened fire on us. Gand set up behind cover and started picking off our enemies left and right (he’s so cool like that). R2 rolled around, taking shots here and there. I think he was trying to be a distraction. I’m not really sure what the person who programmed him was thinking… Verk charged forward but over extended himself. And this is where I had my proudest moment. I jumped out and pushed him out of the line of fire. Unfortunately I took the hit and here’s where it gets hazy… All I remember is Verk standing over top of me, firing like crazy, with tears streaming down his face. I could have sworn he yelled “JURIS! NOOOOO! You were my best friend and I never got to tell you! I’LL KILL YOU ALL!” At least, I think that’s what happened. Hazy… remember?

Next thing I know, I’m back among the living. I guess I just got knocked out and not killed. I feel really bad about scaring my friends like that. Anyway, we scoped out the Dawn’s Damsel and saw a bunch of Ulgors milling about the wreck. R2 and Verk go down to investigate. It turned out that the Ulgors had made the ship into a holy site. They wouldn’t let R2 on the ship, so it was up to me to get the astrogation info out of the nav system. Once we were in the ship, Verk pretended to do a holy interpretive dance to distract the Ulgors while I extracted the info. We actually managed to get out without any more complications.

We took the info back to Banu and he paid us. After that we went back to the Noculent and I went to my quarters to write in my diary… But I guess you knew that part. I wonder what’s in store for Juris and his amazing friends tomorrow.

-Juris Varga

P.S. Gand let me see the vid feed from his scope. Verk has some impressive moves.

Star of Morning Part 2: The Escape!

With the arrival of the Imperials, the crew knew they needed to work quickly to acquire the target and escape. Gand began scanning communications frequencies to provide information to the party, while Juris abandoned his mission to disable the hyperdrive and began making his way toward the three crew members already attempting to steal the contents of Dr. Nara Kaylack‘s safebox. At the secure storage facility, Verk, Tran, and R2-Q5 were in,the midst of talking their way past the facility’s administrator. With a quick bit of slicing, R2 was able to adjust the facility’s records to appear that Verk was actually Dr. Kaylack. This, combined with the safebox receipt and access codes, convinced the administrator to show them to Dr. Kaylack’s box. After opening the safebox and removing the machine it contained, Verk heard the tell tale signs of an argument from the main lobby. He quietly approached the doorway, and observed four rough looking men accosting the administrator. As he made his way back to Tran and R2, blaster fire erupted from behind him.

Juris, who was approaching the secure facility at this time, arrived just in time to see the men gun down the guards, and two begin making their way toward the back with the administrator. The two heading in to the back were halfway to the, now empty, safebox, when R2 and Tran opened fire. Taking his cue, Juris opened fire on the two still in the lobby. After a quick, but noisy, encounter the thieves were all dead. The crew had suffered a few injuries, but knew to get moving quickly before more security officers began to arrive.

Making their way through the Star of Morning, the crew encountered numerous security patrols that they were able to either sneak or talk their way past. Gand commed to say that the Imperials were looking for Dr. Kaylack, and that there wasn’t much time before they knew what was happening. As the crew attempted to call a turbolift to take them to the hangar bay level, they discovered that they had been locked down ship wide. R2 attempted to slice his way in and open the lift unsuccessfully, alerting security to his presence at the same time. The crew then tried to use a nearby stairwell, but found it blocked by two Imperial stormtroopers. When they were unable to talk their way past the troopers, the crew decided to try their luck with maintenance tunnels. Unfortunately, by this time the imperials had discovered who was responsible for the theft and firefight at the secure storage facility. They were spotted by a squad of Stormtroopers as they were inches away from a tunnel access point. Not wanting to engage the highly trained Imperials, the crew attempted to escape and cover their trail with a few grenades. Unfortunately, in the chaos, the accuracy of the grenade throws was sub-par. The stormtroopers were able to get off two devastating salvos before an accidental hit on the maintenance tunnel’s hatch terminal went critical causing a small explosion and providing the necessary distraction Juris and Verk needed to get their highly injured friends away.

When the crew arrived at their hangar they saw it guarded by two stormtroopers. Catching the troopers unprepared Tran injured one and the other was forced to grab his ally and drag him into the bay before returning fire. This, however, left them both exposed to Gand’s sniper rifle from atop the Noculent. he made quick work of the two troopers and ushered his friends aboard. He then blasted the ship out of the hangar, ensuring to keep the Star of Morning between the Noculent and the two Imperial cruisers, although six TIE fighters were in hot pursuit. As the Noculent was putting distance between itself and the Imps the comm crackled and the voice of Marek Quay greeted them and ordered them to stand down. The crew continued to flee of course, and with some excellent flying by Gand, some sharp shooting by Juris and Verk, was able to escape, albeit with some severe damage to the Noculent due to a few collisions with TIE fighters.

After jumping to hyperspace, the crew was able to lick it’s wounds and heal up a bit on the way back to Entralla. They also had a bit of time to get a better look at the device they had stolen. Juris and R2, working together, discovered that this might in fact be a prototype cloaking device small enough to fit on ships as small as a snub fighter. Something like this would be incredibly valuable. Upon arrival Begas Tok was overjoyed at the successful mission. True to his word, he wiped the rest of their debt clean, and in an uncharacteristic moment of generosity gave the crew an additional 20k credits. He encouraged the crew to repair their ship, and said if they were ever in need of work to come see him.

Now, the crew of the Noculent is free and clear, able to work for themselves, take whatever jobs they want, go wherever they want to go. And with a new ally, who proved he wasn’t entirely inept, they may be able to actually negotiate some good rates in the future.
