Star Wars - Edge of The Empire

Episode 5 Summary
Genosian Negotiations

As the Twi’leks thanked the party for their aid in freeing their mines from Drombb’s men, they were approached by a Bothan spy named Ota who had previously worked with Mertha on a number of clandestine missions. Ota game with grave news. Teemo had placed a bounty on Xorath, Mirella, Mertha and Vexx that had been communicated throughout various underworld networks. Varick has apparently escaped Teemo’s notice of yet, having not been part of the escape from Mos Shuuta.

Ota however, presented a possible solution to their new problem. Ota’s spy network has learned of ongoing negotiations between Teemo and a pair of Genosian Dukes. IF the PC’s could learn the nature of Teemo’s relationship with Genosia, Ota believed the party would be able to strike at Teemo. Ota then revealed that A Duke Piddock was throwing a party to meet with several associates. The adventurers were to crash the party and learn all the could about Piddock’s early deals with Teem – and why they had gone sour. It was hoped that this information, once learned, could also be used to end the newly formed partnership between Teemo and Duke Dimmock.

The party took Ota’s mission and uncovered several key intelligence reports and met a number of new contacts. The most useful contact was a Toydarian named Anatta who told the party:

  1. Teemo employed a spy named Thweek – The same Kubaz that killed Sivor, Piddock’s technician
  2. Pidock was negotiating a massive weapons deal with a Sullistan named Nu Nanb
  3. The Vio siblings (Orpa and Wex) are smugglers planning on sending a shipment to Teemo from Genosia
  4. Both Duke Dimmock and Duke Piddock despise Genosian subjugation under the Empire

With the information gained at the party, along with the email communications pulled from Drombb’s stronghold, the group headed to Duke Dimmock and presented their evidence of Teemo’s reckless dealings and plans to reverse engineer the Genosian battle droid plans. Upset with all he had learned, Duke Dimmock agreed to assist the party (if not openly) reach Teemo’s palace by permitting them to smuggle aboard “The Luck Guess”, a Nova Courier piloted by the Vio siblings.

Fighting their way through the hangar – and against a Vrixx’t – a Gand bounty hunter looking to collect his reward from Teemo, the party makes their way back to Mos Shuuta and Teemo’s palace to rid themselves of the bounty on their heads!

Liberation of New Meen

Bravely routing the contingent of armed Aqualish thugs threating the Twi’lek miners in New Meen, the party interrogated the defeated thugs and learned of Drombb’s plan to intimidate the Twi’leks through escalating hostility until the Twi’leks abandoned their mines.

Intimidating the thugs into surrendering Drombb’s location, the heroes of New Meen took the fight to their commander at his nearby settlement. As the party spied on Drombb and his thugs, Xorath devised a plan to drive a construction vehicle into the nearby cantina where Drombb was holding court with his thugs.

The plan went off brilliantly as the vehicle was set for the Cantina, exploding into the building’s outer wall, killing several thugs as its fuel cells ignited. Smoked out by the explosion, Varik and Mirella easily picked off Drombb and his men as they fled the inferno. As the flames subsided, Mertha searched the premises and discovered a loot box and computer terminal which she sliced into and uncovered Drombb’s communications with a recipient named “Thweek” discussing “Sivor”, a droid technician captured by Trex, and two supporters of an unknown plan named “Duke Piddock” and “Dimmock”. More disturbing was the transmissions detail of Sivor’s decapitation by Thweek.

But this was an investigation for another day as the party was welcomed back to the Twi’lek camp as liberators and the celebrations commenced!

However the tide began to turn when a Lylek unexpectedly emerged from the nearby cave entrance, seizing a Gand bounty hunter and dragging him into his lair.

Episode 2: Journey to the Ryll Mines

Mirella and Xorath downed a squadron of pursuing Imperial Tie Fighters just as Vex installed the Hypermatter drive and sent the newly christened Soul Stealer into hyperspace. However, the crew was unable to catch their breath as alert klaxons screamed, fuel sensors approached empty, illicit Wookie pelts polluted the air and a grating Gamorran opera soundtrack blared through the ship’s PA speaker.

Enduring through the cacophony of sounds, the adventurers explored there new ship and discovered an imprisoned Twi’lek named B’ura B’an. Freeing the Twi’lek in an effort to better control the ship, the party agreed to take the former prisoner to the mines of Ryloth. En route to the port Nabat, the party was attacked by a ship following their flight through a transponder Teemo the Hutt had placed on the ship. Sending their attacker to crash on the planet’s surface, the adventurers landed and met with the leader of the Twi’lek movement to secure the mines, Nyn Kablo.

Agreeing to assist Nyn, the party made their way by speeder to the mines – and an ambush near an old desert lylek den.

Episode 1 Summary

Gameday Summary for Episode 1

Xorath, a smuggler indebted to the local crime lord on Mos Shuuta, Teemo the Hutt, had spent the last two weeks at the Hutt’s palace, subjected to unspeakable horrors and tortures, brought to the brink of death – only to be revived by the Hutt’s medical staff to be subjected to additional horrors at the Hutt’s leisure. The cycle of torture was broken when the lead medical droid, forced to serve the Hutt, decided to help the smuggler escape the Hutt’s clutches.

Unknown to the smuggler and medical droid, there was another potential ally in the Hutt’s palace, a Bothan spy named Mertha. Under deep cover, the Bothan spent the last several months investigating the Hutt’s activities. Reluctant to destroy his cover and throw away months of spy work, the Bothan secretly followed the fleeing pair into a cantina on the streets of Mos Shuuta.

Desperately looking to hide from their pursuers, the group successfully avoided the searching eyes of the Hutt’s thugs. As the Gamorrans gave up their search and prepared to leave, the smuggler, sensing the thugs would relentlessly continue their pursuit and blasted the unprepared thugs. Mirella, a force sensitive finding her way with the force, assisted the party as they repelled their attackers. Shortly after running roughshod through the cantina and before kicking them out, a Devoran bartender informed the 4 new allies of the Krayt Fang – a starship capable of taking them offworld – provided they could procure a new reactor part and steal the ship.

Mirella, with the assistance of the force, managed to convince a local junk yard owner that she was an emissary for a Trandoshan slaver and that he should release the reactor in her care. With the needed part in hand, and after Mertha sliced into the spaceports computer network to release the Krayt Fang, the fringers overpowered the Krayt Fang’s slaver crew and headed into the atmosphere…..only to be pursued by Imperial Tie Fighter now firing on the stolen ship!
