STAR WARS - Rise of Rebellion

Jungle Living
Dawn of Defiance part 4?

The team ended last session arriving at Darlyn Boda after killing Darga the Hutt and making off with his valuables in his space yacht. With money in their pockets another round of shopping is expected and Banner is looking at purchasing a plantation out of the city proper so he has a place to come back to and is hoping to convince some of the other gamoreans to stay on as his henchmen and guards.

The group recovered some datapads from the hutt, but aren't certain if the information they were sent to retrieve is on them or not. Darlyn Boda does have a rather infamous information broker as well though and they may be able to complete their mission with a little help . . .

Serona and Spyro are 11 days behind the rest of the team as they had some difficulty getting through the Imperial Blockade that moved in when the team left.

The team did especially well in the ship trade ending up with multiple starships and made several deals with the local Black Sun gang members. The team members ended up purchasing several farm lots around Boda City and invested in farm droids and "insurance" from the local gangs. They arranged to send most of the ships to be with the Phoenix Squadron Fleet and rode with Serona to Bespin to find the meet for the Tibana Gas for Slaves exchange.

On Bespin they were directed by Spyro to capture the baron and eliminte his guards. The group succeeded at that, but were jumped by a pair of Anzat at the same time they were engaged with the Imperials. The group overcame them and took their belongings before rejoining Spyro at the hotel.

To Meet a Hutt
Dawn of Defiance Part 3

Cato Neimodia didn't do well in the Clone Wars and while not as devastated as some worlds it has suffered a considerable loss of fortunes. Once grand palaces are still lying in rubble with no one to repair them and gangs of swoop riders haunt the streets. Somewhere among the collection of villany is rumored to be Darga the Hutt, small time as Hutts go, but still considerable in the crime world. The Admiral is aware the Hutt was part of some sort of money laundering scheme involved in a secret project called Sarlac and the characters are to find Darga and figure out any information he might have about the secret project or at least what commodities he was trading.

As a world fallen on hard times meaning there is a thriving criminal market even though Galactic Banking still has a strong presence. Characters can expect a fair amount of prejudice and high prices, but there is a good probability of finding whatever they desire.  

Before leaving for Cato Neimodia characters can also resupply basic needs from the stocks of the Resurgence which include such basic necessities as ration packs, syntherope, tool kits, breath masks, comlinks, data pads, glow rods, macrobinoculars, medpacs, recording rods, DL-18 pistols, blaster power packs, vibroblades, blast helmets, blast vests, emergency spacesuits, ship suits, spacer chests, and gear bags.

The team went shopping for 3 days, but ran into legal trouble and decided to move on without as much as they had originally hoped for. The rented a run down palace on Cato Neimoidia and made contact with a swoop gang that knew the hutt, making arrangements for a meet. Once they met with the hutt and discussed working for him they enjoyed some generous feasts, took part in a gladiatorial match, discovered his majordomo was working with Sith in the employment of the Empire, and that he was selling slaves who died quickly to slavers.

The team formulated a hasty plan after a few days and killed the hutt, framed and then killed the majordomo, recruited the Gamoreans and the Swoop gang to help loot the vault and steal the hutt's yacht and then made a run for Darlyn Boda.

Splitting the cash they ended up with 320,000 credits each and several crates of other valuables they will need to fence if they need more cash.

Felucia Bound
Dawn of Defiance Part 2

After enjoying the hospitality of Bail Organa at his Alderaan Palace the characters will be loading up on the Banshee with Captain Okeefe and heading to Felucia. It is a 4 week trip. The agent the characters rescued in carbonite has revealed an Imperial Admiral that was helping Organa gain supplies and intelligence is being held prisoner in a remote listening post of the unpopulated side of the planet. The characters need to sneak in past the garrisons on the other side of the planet, extract the admiral, and then travel to a secret rendezvous to avoid being tracked back to Alderaan.

Bail is leaving the same day as the group although a very special party is being held the night before to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the end of a feud between the Organa and Antilles families. Many nobles, including the entire Organa family will be present at the gala, so it may be advisable for characters to remain out of sight, but those who want to try mingling with the upper class may make their way to the grand ballroom.

Sirona Okeefe isn't attending the ball and takes advantage of the time to do some checks on The Banshee before their departure the next day. Maya is back on the security detail while Agent-X has already left for another mission. Characters interested in seduction and partying may want to connect with Nial Organa (bastard nephew of Bail and hedonistic party animal – basically the Tony Stark of the Organa family). The party will run into the evening and then in the morning both The Banshee and The Tantive IV will be headed out.

The Party was uneventful, but Count Dooku was assassinated that night by what appeared to be Boba Fett. The party responded and gave chase with Thomas managing to hit the mandolorian armor while Banner smashed through an armored window before the nude Stephen and silk pajama wearing Banner crashed into the mandalorian armor taking the assassin over the cliff. The pair survived hitting the water and were rescued by an airspeeder. After the characters were brought back up the dead assassin was discovered to be Jahan Cross. The incident was covered up as well as possible and then the team set out for Felucia.

The Banshee reached Felucia but was intercepted by a Victory Class Star Destroyer. Okeefe dove to the planet's surface and landed but took some damage. As the group prepared to leave the area they heard the sound of a lightsaber duel and ran to see what was going on. They entered the clearing to see Malek cutting down Shaak Ti. Althea and Leia killed Malek and Spyro used the force to keep Shaak Ti alive.

Shaak Ti wouldn't be able to recover until the team could reach a place with bacta tanks available, so Spyro stayed at the ship to help monitor her and gather medicines with the MD droids while the rest of the group set out for the prison. Soon after leaving they came across a Rancor and managed to avoid it, but a little further on they were spotted by a pair of speeder scouts. The team split up chasing the speeder scouts with Jauhq and Thomas going after one and the others going after the other one. The bike the Meri were following lead them through a set of underground tunnels and then out into a clearing, just before Thomas was going to get a shot off he noticed two EWEB blaster emplacements on the other side of the clearing. Both Meri had their bikes shot out from under them but managed to land safely and sneak out of sight. The other team chased the scout through a rancor breeding ground and over a cliff, but seeing him approaching the base they doubled back to hide their bikes.

Thomas and Jauhq split up and Thomas was grabbed by a sarlac, struggling for over a minute before managing to sever a tentacle and get away. Sneaking up behind the eweb emplacements they killed the stormtroopers, but the eweb Jauhq attacked exploded and he was forced to dive for cover. Eventually they all came together outside the base and made their way to an exhaust duct having Banner pull the panel loose while concealing the noise with a sound bubble.

Inside they managed to quickly take out the communications staff and then move on to the detention ward while most of the guards were searching outside the compound for them. Once the characters had the prisoners they took all the explosives in the armory and dumped them into the core but realized an entire battalion had moved in outside as a trap. They still managed to sneak out setting off the explosives and destroying the base then slipped away in the chaos.

The Banshee flew out to meet The Resurgence and prepared for the next mission . . .

STAR WARS: DAWN OF DEFIANCE

Episode 1

THE TRAITOR'S GAMBIT

It is a dark time in the galaxy. The evil Galactic Empire has spread from the deep core to the outer rim and everywhere the Empire's tyranny can be felt.

Fleeing from the oppression of the Emperor's minions a group of agents working for Senator Bail Organa have come to a remote space station above Brentaal. Known to be an opponent of the Empire and its ways Organa may be the last hope for freedom in the galaxy.

In the hopes of stopping these dissidents before they can reach the Senator agents of the Empire are on alert at the Sel Zonn Station where a struggle for liberty rages on and the first sparks of rebellion have begun to burn . . .

 

Seemingly motionless among a sea of starships and satellites above the twinkling world of Brentaal the Sel Zonn Station grows larger in the view screen as The Lady of Mindolar approaches. While the passenger liner will only be making a short stop at the station before continuing on her way this is the last stop for our bold adventurers. The blinking lights of the station beckon the ship as it pulls in to docking position and the captain's voice over the intercom instructs those who are visiting the station to move to the airlocks.

The adventure begins with the characters arrival, the Battle of Yavin hasn't been envisioned as there isn't even a rebellion to have a base there but it will come to pass in three years, for now the characters are embarking on some early treasonous behavior which will build into the Galactic Civil War in the near future . . .

After arriving on the space station the characters settled in to wait for their contact and noticed two men watching. When Maya arrived she was severely injured and the two men move to intercept her while calling in a pair of stormtroopers for support.

Althea moved to get Maya while Banner took out the two undercover operatives, but was shot by the stormtroopers and fled into the alley. Jauhq hit the two stormtroopers with knives and then Thomas shot them, but struck their grenades setting off an explosion. Stephan and Thomas managed to jump clear, but Jauhq was unable to recover his vibrodaggers.

Maya guided the group to her safe house but the area was crawling with stormtrooper so after applying medkits they proceeded to the meet with Switch while Althea took Maya and Banner's droid to Spyro. Althea was jumped by a Trandoshan in the ventilation tunnels and killed him on the way to the hotel.

Althea changed and went to catch up with the rest of the team while Spyro snuck Maya to a bacta tank. As the group approached Switch's lair Banner convinced two Gamorrean guards to allow the group to enter. Switch demanded a thousand credits for information on the package the team was to pick up. As Althea was catching up a Chevin, Ganga Lor, with seven thugs killed the Gammoreans and busted in to shoot the place up.  Banner charged Ganga who managed to defend himself from one blow, but was then brutally splattered. Juahq and Thomas attacked the thugs before they took off running along with Switch's thugs. Juahq gave chase killing the two with his knives stuck in them and Althea let the others pass.

The team looted the area and took Switch and his droid as inactivated prisoners. Spyro sent Banner's SE4 and Spyro's repulsor cart to the team and then Stephan and Althea went to the Blue Deck while the others headed for The Banshee. Thomas found his room had been burglarized but the group made it to The Banshee.

Althea and Stephan spotted one of the informants from the promenade, but let them go while duping a dock worker for uniforms. At the warehouse there were stormtroopers and an imperial officer already getting their cargo, and they knew the team was coming. In the fight Althea used a lightsaber while Stephan used a tangler. The cargo turned out to be a person in carbonite and the team fled on the Banshee with Banner blasting 64-Y repulsor sleds pursuing the group.

The team reached Alderaan and met with Bail Organna giving him some of the things they recovered. Bail told them he had another job coming up in a couple weeks and gave each player 20,000 credits to hold them over.
