EPISODE IV
Shattered Wires


The crew of the Star Wanderer have travelled to the Haenat system and conducted a daring heist against the GALACTIC EMPIRE to steal a shipment of a dangerous drug known only as RYL-X.

Escaping into the factory districts of the city, the crew now search for a place to lay low to avoid any further complications before they are required to leave the planet with the shipment.

Unfortunately after the crew’s run-in with Imperial and local security forces both at the starport and during the heist, the system has been blockaded, and a special task force has been dispatched to the planet to recover the malfunctioning prototype droid, designation KYN-11T....

TRIGGERED OBLIGATION: KYN-11T (Kyanite) (Bounty – Empire)
DESTINY POOL: Light 2 / Dark 4

TOTAL XP: 20

EVENTS:

  • The crew of the Star Wanderer fled the scene of the heist with the stolen RYL-X.
  • The crew located an abandoned factory and decided to lay low.
  • Arcz and L’zadarma visited a scrap dealer to get rid of the speeder taxi they performed the heist with and collected old droid parts to disguise KYN-11T. Arcz arranged for ‘no questioned asked’ although the Gammorean assistant seemed to be more interested in cashing in on their bounty. Surprisingly, Arcz learned that L’zadarma spoke and understands fluent Gammorean, putting the junk dealer proprietor and his assistant in an awkward spot when they tried to communicate secretly using that language.
  • Everyone returned to the abandoned factory and L’zadarma began work on disguising KYN-11T.
  • El-Isara and Zax went looking for a vehicle and found a speeder truck. After breaking into the facility, they steal the truck and make their way back to the factor.
  • Unfortunately, they were spotted by members of a local street gang and followed back to the factory. The gang kept the factory under observation until a bunch of Black Sun Operatives rocked up, led by the notorious “Red Eye”.
  • The hunters break into the factory whilst “Red-Eye” moves down the side of the building. As Zax is making his way to the vehicle, he is hit by a disruptor pistol, his arm disintegrating. The others assist him into the truck, why KYN-11T opens up with the E-Web. El-Isara, angered by her “brother’s” injury, brings part of the building down on the hunters.
  • L’zadarma, now the next best pilot, attempts to flee the scene but is having some difficulties with the vehicle. Eventually, after “Red-Eye” starts taking shots, the crew flee the scene and into the streets.
  • After resting in the back of the truck, the crew decided they wanted to learn more about their cargo as well finding a way off planet.
  • L’zadarma was intending to find out what she could about the somehow getting KYN-11T off the planet and perhaps another option of getting the crew off world as their “escape route” was firstly not going to be back in time; and secondly, probably not going to get past the blockade.
  • Unfortunately a viable option to get them off world was not an option. L’zadarma did find however, several manifests involving shipments to Haenat from Solanus. The latest shipment also appeared to be the same size as the cargo the crew stole from the train.
  • L’zadarma also learned that the planet was blockaded and that there were several bounties now placed on each member of the crew, specifically El-Isara and KYN-11T, by the Empire. Lastly, L’zadarma also found that the shipment manifest indicated that it had been taken to the same building, at least initially, that the Golden Arcadian was stolen from.

KNOWLEDGE OF THIS CRYSTAL AND ITS RELATIONSHIP TO THE DRUG RYL-X COULD IMPEDE THE PRIMARY OBJECTIVE

SEASON 2 - Episode 4
 

Will nothing work properly? Bloody Empire, constantly on our tail…

Each time these missions go to pot it causes our longer term plans to go by the wayside. These crystals must be found and their powers subdued!

At least we have the ‘RYL-X’…for now. But it is not clear that the RYL-X in this case is what it seems. It actually makes sense that we have commandeered something disguised as something else, because I find it unlikely that the Empire would care so much about two crates of drugs that they station a half legion of troopers to guard it. Suspicious, highly suspicious.

As for recent events; when I saw the BLACK SUN operatives, I could not control my rage; memories of my old friend’s demise bubbled, unbidden, to the surface, and I felt the living force shoot through me like a surge of electricity, snaking its way to the roof of the building, crushing and crumbling and rendering destruction as the ceiling collapsed, on top of the enemies who had just crippled my brother.

Then the inevitable conflict; this was not the way of the light side of the force…..

Seriously how hard are these speeder trucks to control I know it’s an older model (it handles like a bantha and it smells like one too) but it doesn’t turn corners and it’s as slow as a Hut after a meal. I might have to get some lessons

SEASON 2 - Episode 4
 

You know someone really means business when they start using disruptors. I couldn’t believe it when I saw Zax’s arm blasted off. I’ve seen people get shot, I’ve been shot but THAT shot was nasty. I didn’t even think it had hit him squarely but next thing you know SPLAT there goes one arm. I mean his whole arm from ONE SHOT! Where can I get me one (or two!) of those? I prefer a blade to a blaster but I am willing to make an exception.

Speaking of blades I need to find a replacement for the one I lost getting this cargo. I doubt if a backwater sector like this would have much in the way of vibro rapiers and I can’t see me using an axe on a regular basis. That would be a bit too Gamorrean for my liking.
