Explorers on the Edge

Slave Rescue and Meeting with a Crimelord
Session 5

Assault on Kw’ynn’s Slave Auction

The next morning, the PCs assaulted Klatooinian slaver Kw’ynn‘s slave auction and rescued Doto’la, the Twi’lek slave girl who was smuggling a datachip of evidence that would strike a blow against Kw’ynn with his competition.

HK-6 set up a sniper spot on one of the walkways above the plaza. Jad located a speeder nearby that he could take.

Dr. Rip fought Kw’ynn, who proved to be tougher than Dr. Rip expected.

From the walkway, HK-6 fired sniper shots at Kw’ynn’s main enforcer, severing his leg and taking him out of the fight.

The party escaped the scene with Doto’la and her datachip intact.

Meeting with Lutrec

The party consulted with their friend, Bothan information broker Gears Breil’ya. He let them know he had set up a meeting with a local crimelord and rival of Kw’ynn’s named Lutrec.

The party met Lutrec at his casino in Worlport, an enormous structure of neon and holographs.

They sold Doto’la’s datachip, the relics and lightsaber crystal they had acquired in the Temple of Jaren Laa on Christophsis to Lutrec in exchange for some credits, refueling and repair for their ship, the Sad Remerel, and some upgraded weapons for those who needed them.

A Lead on the Bounty Hunter

Lutrec lets them know he has a lead on Cad Bane:

A few months ago, Lutrec was buying some product from a spacer thief he knows. This thief had recently left Moonis City on the planet Kalandra. He had some gear to sell that had been stolen from a cantina in Moonis City called Dac’s. It was a rusty set of breathing tubes and some jet boots.

Lutrec bought the gear (and has since passed them along to an interested buyer), but the thief didn’t seem to realize these items were some of the signature gear of bounty hunter Cad Bane.

So, however they got there, the bounty hunter’s breathing tubes and boots were found hidden in the basement of Dac’s Cantina on Kalandra IV. If I were trying to find out what happened to Bane, that’s where I’d start."

In Trouble on Ord Mantell
Session 4

Slave Girls in Trouble

On Ord Mantell, Dr. Rip wakes up with a hangover after meeting some girls at the Hyperspace Downtime cantina the previous night.

One of the girls, Una shows up at the ship, says “Help, they’ve taken ”/characters/dotola" class=“wiki-content-link”>Dotol’a captive, buy her freedom"

She says her friend Doto’la was kidnapped by local crimelord and slaver Kw’ynn, a Klatooinian gangster with a lot of influence in Worlport.

Bluffing Kw’ynn

Dr. Rip injects Una with a sedative to knock her out.

He takes her to Kw’ynn’s heavily-guarded compound and tries to bluff Kw’ynn into buying Una from him. Kw’ynn snaps his fingers and calls Una to his side. It’s apparent that Una already belongs to Kw’ynn.

Dr. Rip leaves empty-handed.

The Voren Institute

Tark and Ti’mouth’ca go to Gears’ and talk via holo to Ederos Sula of the Voren Institute. Sula is very eager that they deliver the Eye of Rodia, but Tark and Ti’mouth’ca inform her they haven’t located it yet. They ask for more money, and Sula refuses.

Una’s been stabbed!

On returning to their ship, PCs discover Una, stabbed in the back, in the landing bay.

Dr. Rip manages to keep her alive with medicine. She informs them that Kw’ynn the slaver had set them up from the beginning. Una and Doto’la were supposed to convince Dr. Rip to spend money on purchasing Doto’la.

Una says that unbeknownst to Kw’ynn, Doto’la has possession of a datachip with incriminating evidence that would cause Kw’ynn serious trouble with either local law enforcement or with his criminal rivals. Gears expresses an interest in this data as well.

Doto’la is to be auctioned off the next morning, so if the PCs wish to rescue her and retrieve that datachip, that’s their chance.

Planning the assault

That night, the PCs travel to Liberation Plaza in Worlport, the site of the next day’s slave auction. They scope out the area and plan their assault.

The plaza had a central stage area in front of a fountain. Overhead the plaza was crisscrossed by walkways between buildings. Various speeders and carts were set up selling food of different origins.

Session 3

Gears Breil’lya and Ord Mantell

The PCs travelled to Ord Mantell, to the city of Worlport, to meet Tark’s friend Gears Breil’ya.

Gears is a Bothan mechanic and information broker who might be able to help them decode the data they’ve recovered as well as find a contact to sell their relics.

They went to Gears’ shop and gave him the data from OOM-274 as well as Ti’mouth’ca’s holorecordings from the Temple of Jaren Laa.

Eldo and HK-6 at the bar

Eldo wanted to get some refreshments at a nearby bar.

HK-6 wanted to look up Kalexes.

Eldo chatted up a few girls, some human and Twi’lek dancers.

What the Battle Droid Saw
Session 2

In the last session, the PCs discovered OOM-274, an ancient battle droid, in the Temple of Jaren Laa under the surface of Christophsis.

OOM-274’s monologue:

The horror…

It’s impossible for words to describe what is necessary to those who do not know what horror means. Horror has a face. You must make a friend of horror. If not, then it is an enemy to be feared.

I remember when I was on the surface. Seems a thousand centuries ago. We went to liberate the city, and there were laser swords … and they hacked off the arms of every droid there. A pile of little arms.

And I realized they were stronger than we.

Wait… who are you?

When the PCs discovered OOM-274, he was cooperative, if a bit loopy.

They discovered an old holo-recording in his memory banks:

The sounds of blaster fire and the shrill voices of dying Battle Droids.

Into the frame comes a Rodian struggling to carry a huge crate out of the temple into the passageway.

A raspy voice in a thick Duros accent speaks:

“Hurry it up with those crates, Reelo, I’ve got to get these treasures to Nesto Vos before the Separatists realize we’re here.”

More blaster fire.

The Rodian says:

“It might be a little easier, Bane, if you’d help me,” as he carries the crates away.

A figure steps into view—a tall Duros wearing a thick duster and a wide-brimmed hat. He turns in your direction, and you can see that he’s got breathing tubes attached to the sides of his face and he’s chewing on a toothpick.

“Just make sure you get them all, you’re being well paid.”

He turns and fires another volley with his blaster pistol, more droids squeal as they die.

The Duros squints as he looks around, then he steps out of the frame and the recording ends.

Ambushed by Thugs

They took this data and returned to their ship, to be confronted by a gang of thugs in small fighters. They engaged in a running firefight with the thugs, Jad leaping into the cockpit of the ship and firing it up as the thugs launched their own fighters and began to blast at the party members still on the ground.

The Sad Remerel took off and the PCs were able to destroy the thugs’ fighters and escape the planet.

On Ord Mantell

The PCs left Christophsis and travelled to Ord Mantell to meet with Tark’s friend Gears Breil’ya.

Descent into the Crystal Caves
Session 1

The PCs are in search of a mythical artifact called The Eye of Rodia.

Ti’mouth’ca and Tark were paid by the Voren Institute to find it.

Christophsis and the Temple of Jaren Laa

On Christophsis, they discovered The Temple of Jaren Laa and collected a variety of ancient relics but the Eye of Rodia wasn’t among them.

Also among the relics on Christophsis was a mysterious crystal that could possibly be used in a lightsaber.

OOM-274, battle droid found in the temple had evidence that bounty hunter Cad Bane had been hired by someone named Nesto Vos to steal the Eye of Rodia.
