First: No game tonight as I have been busy and am ill-prepared. With that in mind, I’d like to run it soon, so let me know which days work for you and we can make it happen.
With that out of the way, recap of last session!
The party made it back to Ord Mantell unassailed, with both the Jewel of Yavin and Elaiza the Jedi on board. Upon arrival, Elaiza offered to meet with Fixer ahead of time to “convince” him to give up the Jewel. The party agreed, and provided her with the Black Sun operative’s meeting location.
Following that, the party reviewed the data that Theed found on a stolen datacard. The card contained a message from a Twi’lek named Reom seeking an exerienced party at The Wheel to undertake a salvage mission.
The party agreed to investigate this opportunity, but first Theed and Gareth (theriouthly, thoth nameth together make me thound like I’m lithping) decided to visit Ligo’s Interstellar Emporium to collect on their earlier order of concussion missile launchers for the ship. Arriving at Ligo’s, the pair found the door open a crack and the office empty. Following a trail of tried blood into the scrapyard, Theed and Gareth found poor old Ligo hanging dead by his feet from a pile of scrap.
Although Gareth managed to stay silent, Theed was unable to contain his excitement and made noise sufficient to alert to the two Barabel assassins sent after Gareth. Tougher than your average humanoid-lizard space thugs, the Barabels gave the pair of adventurers a real run for their credits. The fight started at range with shots fired and alerts sent over comms, but quickly turned into a melee in the cramped quarters of the front office, knives slashing and fists striking. With Gareth wounded and Theed dealing with a combat blade stuck in his shoulder, the adventurers decided upon a brilliant tactical maneuver; they decided to blow up everything. Gareth primed a thermal detonator and the pair ran from the building. The detonation, though massive, vapourized only one of the two Barabel thugs.
Da’echa and R0-81t arrived on scene only to observe the remaining Barabel as he followed Gareth out into the street, managing to deliver a strong punch to his head before Theed came to the rescue and put the Barabel down.
Having dealt with the assassination attempt with wounds to show for it, the party loaded the concussion missile launchers onto a grav sled and escape towards the ship.
After getting patched up and having the launchers attached to the ship, the party set off towards The Wheel. Upon arrival, they explored the station some and after some digging found the club to which Gareth’s strange coin provided entry. With Theed and R0-81t investigating the club itself, Gareth and Da’Echa made their way into a backroom high-stakes game of Sabbac. Despite a tough opposition, the party managed to pull ahead and win the pot several times. Asked “nicely” to leave, Gareth and Da’echa exited back into the club and left with Theed and R0-81t just before the event was over.
Elaiza and Fixer came to an unspoken “agreement”. Fixer paid the party for their work as previously discussed, after which Elaiza suggested that the adventurers leave her and Fixer to discuss further matters. She did not rejoin the group, much to the party’s relief.
