S1.10 - Main Story Entry - "Return to Mos Shuuta" - Part 1 - The Twist
Orpa - Date unknown, Geonosis - outer space

Orpa pulled the ship off the surface of Geonosis, a black burn next to the main entry door, a leftover from the what appeared to be a boarding skirmish of the new guests.
The Geonosean desert wastelands grew smaller and Orpa's brother turned around to the cockpit entrance to meet the new guests. The droid merchants. Wrex greeted them enthusiastically.
They seem to be friendly people and Piddock paid a nice extra to take them with us. Orpa felt a little more confident for the rest of the journey.

Suddenly the scanner started beeping. Wrex looked up and stated that a big ship was coming. A star destroyer came nearby. The light from the intercom flickered when a transmission message came in from the ship.
A cool, professional voice: 'This is star destroyer Darkrose, representing the Galactic Empire. Pease send us your flight records and wait for permission to leave before proceeding.'
A routine check. Luckily her brother and she recently made sure that they were officially licensed merchants. Orpa sent the data to the destroyer and looked at the guests. 'You are not in the flight records of course. Star destroyers typically have a life scanner, so this could get a little bit annoying. Don't worry though, I'm sure they run into situations like this all the time, they 'll probably just do a routine check.'
The female droid merchant did not seem confident. Her face was white as a sheet of paper and she was typing maniacally typing on the hyperspace planning computer. 'Are you ok?' Orpa asked.
The voice from the destroyer was back: 'Your records mention only two people aboard. Is that information correct?' Orpa started apologizing: 'We do have some extra passengers. The records may not be fully up-to-date. Times are harsh, and we need to make some money to make a living.'
That should do it. The voice responded, slightly annoyed: 'Right. Please state the names and occupancies of the other travelers.' Orpa answered: 'They sell droid parts, we have one male, his name is…' Suddenly the panicking women rushed forward, threw Orpa aside and pulled the hyperspace lever.

Orpa was shocked, 'No!', she shrieked. She wrestled with the woman, who was surprisingly determined to hold down the lever. Eventually, she managed to push her off the dashboard and flip the hyperspace lever. Ryloth nor the space destroyer seemed to be anywhere near. A giant asteroid was however, coming closer alarmingly fast. Orpa grabbed the steering bat and avoided the impending doom effortlessly.
She looked around and saw no more threats outside of the ship. Time to deal with those on the inside. She turned around and looked at the trembling woman on the floor. 'Why did you do that? Why did you run? It was just a routine check.'
The woman replied: 'There are people on that ship who search us, they would have recognized us. Thinks could go very bad. I saved us'.
Orpa was furious: 'You saved us!' She looked at her brother. Wrex looked defeated: 'We sent them our records, they know us. We're on their wanted list now. Our life as merchants is over. We're outcasts now.'
Orpa added: 'We cannot even deliver our goods now, they know where we were going. So long our standing with Piddock. You saved us! Idiots, they look for millions of people, they would have never recognized you, you’re not that special.'
The woman stood up from the floor: 'Now I remember, I do have a disguise kit, maybe I shouldn't have pulled the lever'
'Maybe!' Orpa ran away in anger to the sleeping rooms.

She ran to her bed room. Time to think about the future. She thought about her brother, poor guy. He didn't deserve to end up like this. Their life never had been a walk through the park though, they would make it through. She had some contacts in Ryloth, maybe they know a way to fix this. But first some sleep. She started undressing herself, when suddenly the door opened and a Bothan was looking at her with wide open eyes.
'Get out!' she yelled. The door closed and she could hear him leaving while talking to her brother, their voices dying out slowly. Suddenly Wrex yelled: 'Mutiny!'
No! This cannot be true! She jumped out of her bed and locked the door. After a while she heard voices at the other side. 'Come out.' the crazy woman said. 'We have your brother!'
'I have a gun' Orpa shouted as confidently as she could. She had nothing.
'I have killed people before'. A bleating Bothan voice.

The Twi'Lek started reasoning: 'Listen Orpa, if you tell the Empire representatives that we forcefully took your ship from you and that we were the ones that ran away, you will no longer be searched for. You and your brother’s name will be completely clean. You can gain nothing by hiding in there. If you surrender however, we will put your brother and you in an escape pod and we'll make sure that someone picks you up.'
He was right. Orpa sighed deeply and opened the door. Her brother and she were indeed guided to an escape pod. 'One day you will thank us for this', the woman said. 'And we'll make sure that you get a new ship', the Twi'lek added. He threw some food in the escape pod. 'Yeah, you can count on us, definitely', the Bothan added. He pressed the pod's escape button and quickly winked before the doors closed and the pod was ejected into outer space.

S1.9 - Main Story entry - "Dealing with the duke"
Kopec - Date unknown, Ryloth

Pffewhh, I'm glad we made it out of there in one piece. Piddoch did not seem happy at all that we couldn't effort any of his merchandise. And for a while there I though that we might had to make a run for it hoping that Zachery would be on the look out for trouble. Luckily Piddoch's goons guarding the entrance didn't feel the need to test their expensive looking new toys. On the topic of expensive toys, we definitively should keep Piddoch in mind for if we require an upgrade in firing power. 

Back aboard the ship Lainaki declared that it was her turn to take some well earned R&R as she gathered all the pillows from the other 2 beds to make herself as comfortable as possible. As I left the crews quarters I went to check up on Ana, only to find her past out in the engineering bay. She looked pretty stylish with her sunglasses on, while balancing her chair on only two legs. I didn't want to risk breaking her neck by waking her so, I just prayed for the best as I made my way towards to galley, drawn in by a surprisingly amazing smell. 

On the way there I bumped into Nahossa who seemed to be as intrigued as I by the smell. Arriving at the main cargo hold we were greeted by a welcome sight; Zachery had prepared his famous stew and had even made (a more or less successful) effort to turn two crates into a cosy dining table. Sitting at the table I made the remark that the water tight containers were doing an excellent job, it hadn't smelled as good about this ship since… well, since ever. Nahossa agreed as he started fantasizing about all the credits we could make from the containers contents. It was at that point that I thanked him for taking care of the pelt situation by himself, sparing me from smelling like a Rancor's ass for the second time in three days.

Nahossa however seemed confused, he thought that I had taken care of the pelts!? I, of course had done no such thing, referencing my "Rancor's ass" argument.  Zachery suggested that one of the ladies must have probably done it, which sounded crazy to me. Ana? Voluntary helping the rest of us out after we took her crane from her? I don't think so. Besides that I seriously doubted the fact that Lainaki could have handled the weight of moving the 6 pelts by her self. This left us with the option of one of Nin's men taking care of it, which seemed even more troublesome. I noticed the panic in Nahossa's eyes as he made his way to the crate, carefully opening it and afterwards looking back at us in complete horror. "They're GONE". he shouted, "all 6 of them, just GONE". "ALL MY MONEY, GONE!?". 

My eyes turned to terror as well as I realized how royally screwed we were. One of Nin's engineers must have discovered the pelts while patching up the ship and alerted Nin. But why did she not confront us when we returned to Nabath? My mind went racing, trying to figure out what had transpired. Zachery on the other hand merely mumbled something along the lines of :"Good riddance" while he scooped himself some stew and asked if I wanted some as well.  "Really Zachery, good riddance?!" I replied. "We just found out that god knows how many people are aware of the fact that we had Wooky pelts aboard our ship. How can u stay calm like that?!". In the meanwhile Nahossa had started pacing in circles around the improvised dinner table, seemingly using his fingers to get an estimate of how much wealth he had just lost. Zachery replied: "Well, I mean, I just think that we're better off without them. They were an issue, now that issue is solved. Whatever happened, it turned out well. We got away from Nabath without further hick ups right? So stop your jabbering and dig in. I've made it extra tasty to celebrate our succesful dealings on Ryloth. Plus you must be hungry from taking to all those people at the Duke's party. On that note, could u get us up to speed on what intel you acquired? We have to inform Anata before we go to the other Duke if I remember correc…" "What do you mean, it turned out well?!" Nahossa interrupted Zachary. "Is losing thousands of credits a good turn out to you? Now that I think of it, you were the only one vocally opposed to keeping them aboard. Aaaandnd and… AND you were grumpy as fck when we woke up at the safehouse the day after we arrived." "And you let Anna drive, without putting up a fight so you could sleep the entire way through" I added. At that point Nahossa had stopped pacing around and faced Zachery directly, I had never seen the Bothan so upset. This was something that he cared about a great deal. I remained seated but looked Zachery stared Zachery right in the face: "Why were you so tired that day? And what did you do the night before?!".

If I remember correctly the stand off took quite some time; Zachary had managed to distract his employer with a tale of a late night drinking and dancing, followed by a 10 mile run through the city. But I wasn't so easily fooled; I had seen Zachary after a night of heavy drinking two days earlier and the morning he had spend in the speeder was nothing like that. In the end, Zachary owed up to it. He had taken it upon himself to sneak out the night we landed on Ryloth and disposed of those vile things. "No amount of credits is worth losing your soul over, even if you fouls were to blind to see it" Zachery stated in a rather calm deminor "and if you're going fire me over that, well, good luck making it without me out there. I give you a week". The argument lasted for at least another hour. Nahossa was just upset about the amount of credits Zachery had cost the company and eventually made Zachery sign a contract legally binding him to repay a debt of 3.000 credits to the company. I wonder if Nahossa realized at the time he was getting 'penny's on the dollar', or well, hairs on the pelt? In any case Zachery did, cause he signed the thing straight away.

For me however, the point of contention had nothing to do with the monetary value of the pelts. Zachery had ignored a democratic vote for the sake of following his own consciousness. "You didn't have the right and you sure as hell didn't have the authority to make that call." I whispered through my teeth. "If you have a problem with the way this group does things, you bring it up and we discuss it. Calmly. Just like you did, when you warned me about how dangerous riling up the town's folk was. You were right back then and I listened." "What do you you listened? You were the only reason there was any threat to us, the rest of this so called 'group'. You nearly got us killed back there, twice! I'm the only reason you made it that dessert alive" The human had stopped eating his stew and straightened his back as he looked down on me across the table. "You, Kopec, do not get to tell me what I can or can not do." … "Are u sure about that?" I replied as I looked up at him. Zachary's eyes turned red and he grabbed me by my vest with one hand and dragged me across the table to his end. "Listen Lek. You do not have any power over me and if I need to remind you of that you just let me know. I'm sure I can free up 5 minutes to get it through your tiny head". As I was hanging there, dragged half way across the table I replied: "Or, I could just wait till you fall asleep and slit your throat and be done with it." Zachery lost it at that point and grabbed me firmly with both hands firmly around my vest putting his face as close as possible to myn stating: "Well then, who's gonne stop me from putting your ass through this table right now, Kopec?". I took a deep breath and looked  Zachery right in the eyes: "No one will stop you Zachary. But you know what the difference is between me and you? I'm not afraid to die and you are. You are scared shitless. It's what drives you to act all tough and what keeps you up at night. It is all you can think about. And I? Well, I've done it twice already. So if you're going to kill me do it right now, or put me down and let me finish my stew." A few moments later Zachary let go of my shirt and we ate as I discussed the meeting with Duke Piddoch. 

Putting all the pieces of information together it became clear that our best shot was to try and get Annata the proof about Timo's powerplay, so that he could inform Jabba and the Huts could work it out. In order to get that information we had to convince duke Dimmoch to let us board his shipment which was leaving for Timo later that day. We contacted Ota and told him the details of the information we had gathered. (mysterious droid blueprint purchases, droid technician disappearance and decapitation, potential powerplay etc.) Ota liked the new plan of letting Jabba deal with Timo himself a lot better than us going in guns blazing and wished us good luck with our audience with the second duke. 

After calling Ota we made our way to Treleck Hive where we were surprised to see  two armed Genocians waiting to escort us to the duke Dimmoch. We had hoped on gathering some additional information in a local cantina, but the hive Treleck did not seem to offer the same amenities as our previous host's hive. In any case I doubt they would have let us go anywhere but the Duke's place. We were told to leave our weapons and we did so willingly. Only Zachary apparently forgot he was carrying brass knuckles cause when one of the guards spotted them, he played dumb and asked the guard to return them when we got back. When we arrived at the Duke's place we were greeted by an enormous throneroom, stacked with at least a hundred of geared up Geonocians along both sides of the room. Zachery signaled us to kneel as we approached the duke which seemed to pleas him greatly and because of his and Nahossa's combined rhetoric we got the duke's cooperation. The fact that Timo had ties to the empire, he worked together close u with a Kubaz and was potentially making a power play; was enough for the Duke to say that he wouldn't put much in our way with regards to making it onboard the Lucky Guess (the cargo ship leaving for Mosh Shuta). He only  stated that we should keep his name out of it, at all time. After thanking the duke we made our way back to our ship to plan our next moves. We informed Ota, who didn't seem interested in intermediary results but who did however confirm to Zachary what kind of payment there would be, should Timo disappear from the picture. 

By nightfall we made our way to dock AA7 where we found three armed Genocians standing in our way. Luckely Nahossa spotted an airduck that was under construction and before I knew it my comrades were inside the airduck in order to sneak by the three guards.  However as soon as I tried to do the same I spotted a very familiar Ghant walking straight towards me with his weapon raised. It was Vrixx'tt, the bounty hunter we had encountered earlier that day at duke Piddoch's fundraiser. As I tried to knod in his direction he smiled back, raising his weapon even further. I guess he definitively knew who we were and we looked like nothing else but a walking talking payout. Without saying another word I made me way to the guards down the corridor who stopped me right in my tracks: "you are not authorized, only authorized personal is allowed to be here" they declared in unison. "Oh well, but I am, I am an acquaintance of duke Dimmoch. U should contact him and tell him that you are keeping up one of his guys". The Geonocians looked nothing if not confused and during their confusion I turned my words into action and walked straight by the guards. As I walked towards the doors of the Cargoship I looked behind me to see the funny look on Vrixx'tt his face. However as I turned around I did not see anything funny, the Geonocians recognized Vrixx'tt and just let him pass. Vrixx'tt increased his pace and his smile had turned to a very unpleasant grin. 

It was at that point that Zachary appeared from a side room. There was a split second where all six of us were just staring at each other in disbelief and confusion. Zachary had been able to bypass the guards using the vent but the Geonocians were now facing exactly the way that he came. The next seconds happened really quickly; Zachary and later Nahossa dashed towards the Cargoship's doors as the Geonocians opened fire on them (stun setting, gaging from the impact on the ship's hull), but they made it. Vrixxt on the other hand opened fire at me and he was shooting to kill if I could assume that from the giant scorch mark he left on the side of the hull. However it was at that point that the Geonocians opened fire on Vrixxt. To this day I'm not entirely sure whether he hit on of them or it was just merely the fact that the Ghant was shooting at a 'supposed friend' of Dimmoch. Either way, we got out. 

Aboard the ship we made our way to the cockpit where we were we received a very warm welcome from Wex and a slightly cool remark from his sister Orpa. I introduced Zachary and Nahossa to the Koreleans as our ship entered orbit. It was at that point that an alarm started to go off and before anything was said Zachary rushed off to one of the batteries. Orpa looked over at her brother as he was checking the scanners. "I've got something" Wrex said. "Well, WHAT do you have" Orpa replied. Wrex looked up and mumbled… "it's something big". 

S1.8 - Main Story entry - "Geonosian Negotiations" - Part 2 - The Party
Anna - Date unknown, Ryloth - Geonosis

"I have a project for a group like yours," Ota, the short and stout Bothan started. 

I couldn't suppress a slight huff of frustration. This was our reward for the entire New Meen debacle? Another assignment? No money, no gear, no weapons.  Yeah, they fixed "our" ship and gave us some medical attention, but I'm quite sure that was our reward for bringing B'ura B'an to Ryloth in the first place. And our fearsome leaders are just taking it. Can't believe they made me give up all the parts I scavenged from the crane and the steam roller. 

"This is bullshit," I mouthed breathlessly as the Bothan pulled out a holographic projector. It showed images of us on Mos Shuuta, the Krayt Fang and our faces. Then in nice big letters: "Wanted. 50K credits reward by Teemo." 

Great. So Kopec was right about the Kubaz. And I'm sure this Bothan is just showing us this message just to warn us and certainly not put extra pressure on us to do whatever the fuck he wants us to. 

"With a reward like that, you might find yourselves hunted by people like Bosk, or even The Mandalorian," he continued. Yeah, or blackmailed by some random beast dude. 

"So exactly why are you showing us this, instead of delivering us?" Lainaki asked. 

"I have a proposition. The project I offer will bring you into contact with people who deal with Teemo," from the corner of my eyes, I saw Lainaki raise her eyebrows, but Ota continued before she could interject, "Teemo has a deal planned with Duke Dimmock, I want you to make sure it falls through." 

"I am invited to Duke Piddock's business party, it's his way of introducing himself onto the black market. The Geonosians have no trading positions under the Empire's rule so they have no choice but to turn to illegal paths. He deals in weaponry and wants to use the party to sell and to do some networking. I know he had a deal planned with Teemo, but something changed his mind. Now Teemo has turned to Duke Dimmock, perhaps if he knew what changed Piddock's mind, that trade will get canceled as well. That's where you come in." 

"So what changed Piddock's mind?" 

"Ah, you'll have to find out. I only know that it was Piddock's initiative to break off the deal. Other than that, I know that Teemo has been promoting a Kubaz spy, Geonosians don't tend to like Kubaz," Ota added, "You'll go as my representatives to Piddock's party. Prepare a good cover story, you never know if there are imperial spies around." 

"And our reward?"

"Well. Teemo probably had the credits to pay your bounty hunters on him. When you eliminate him, that will be your reward," and with that, the Bothan left. 

[Author's note: Apparently Kubaz like to eat insects and Geonosians are insectoids. Yeah.] 

We left in the morning for Taris. Our Krayt Fang was fixed up… sufficiently. Lainaki and Kopec seemed pleased, but I was sure that if I had stayed to lead the technical crew, it would've been in a much better state. The waterproof box we had ordered stood in the cargo hold and we assumed the wookie pelts were place inside of it, because the smell was gone. We decided that our cover story would be that we trade in droid parts. 

The trip was calm and Lainaki amused herself during it by inspecting some sort of alien shell that was on board. Kopec took a much-needed shower. 


[TARIS - Geonosis]

We received a request to leave all our weapons on board, so we complied. A few heavily armed, giant Geonosian soldiers escorted us to the Duke's party. They led us to a lavish cantina, clearly designed to attract cosmopolites. Piddock was not messing around. 

Inside, a band was playing and the guests were clearly having a good time. We decided to talk a bit with the guests first, before approaching the Duke. 

First we spoke to the human siblings Orpa and Wrex Vion. They run a taxi business and let us know that they would be willing to ship droids around as well. He's a funny guy, she's clearly the brains of the operation. They told us that the Toydarian guest at the party, Anatta, works for Jabba the Hutt. 

Kopec tried to talk to the Sullustan, Mu Nanb, but he said he wanted to listen to the band first. "I'm just a tourist," he claimed. He was sharply dressed, but very young.  

Lainaki talked, well, flirted, with an elegant woman at the bar, Maru Jakkar. She's apparently interested in like culture and art and history and stuff? The Geonosians were nearly all wiped out, so their culture is like super special to her or something. I don't get it, but Lainaki obviously liked it. Maru is not just in the relic business, but she's also the front woman of a syndicate operating in the core worlds. She warned us that there were some shady deals going on when we mentioned droid technology: series of suspicious payments  for seemingly worthless auctions and B1 battle droid plans had been spotted on the trading post – all traced back to Tattooine. She also told us that the Gant at the party was a bounty hunter of certain repute, called Vrixx'tt. 

Then we spoke to Anata from Mos Eisley. Turned out he didn't deal in items, but in information. We headed to one of the private rooms so we could talk discretely. He was a major help, but also an expensive one

The droid and the Gant approached us, but didn't teach us anything more. The Gant claimed he was a representative of an informal organisation that promotes the interest of insectoid species. 

Then it was time to talk to the host, Duke Piddock. He told us he had canceled the deal with Teemo because the Hutt had hired a Kubaz (Thwheek). In retaliation, Teemo abducted the droid technician Sivor, but Piddock had no proof of that. When we asked if other Geonosians would still make deals with Teemo despite the Kubaz, he immediately named Dimmock. "He has lower standards. Vile, no moral compass. He sells inferior droids and weapons." 

When he realised that we weren't actually going to order any weapons, we were asked to immediately leave the party and were escorted back to our ship. All in all, I thought things went well. 

S1.8 - Main Story entry - "Geonosian Negotiations" - Part 1 - The Aftermath
Anna - Date unknown, Ryloth


The party continued on throughout the entire night. The Twi'leks were shooting wildly around with their new guns as they danced and sang and celebrated life. I looked around. Two of the members of this tiny community got shot tonight, shot dead. Did they just not care? Did Twi'leks experience grief in some other way than humans did?

Then I spotted her. A tiny, broken shadow of a woman: Amatseri, Jeff's wife. She seemed to be carrying all the sadness in the world on her slender shoulders as she sat next to his lifeless body. I took a hesitant step towards her, but quickly turned away. My presence was not appreciated in this community and what could I say? "I'm sorry your husband – who was a barely functioning half-wit – got shot by some power hungry maniac. I'm also aware I aimed two blasters straight at your dearly departed husband barely two days ago but in my defense, he was about to kill all the "humies" and I'm a humie". Yeah, let's not, Anna. 

A nauseous feeling rose up from the deepest pit of my stomach straight into my throat. I wanted to leave. Leave this place, leave this planet. But leave to where? Whether I wanted it or not, this crew was the closest thing I had to a family and home was wherever our ship landed. Images from Anthan Prime flashed before my eyes and I quickly shook my head. "Come on, girl, these are the choices you've made," I muttered to myself, "put on a smile, distract yourself, keep your eyes on the future, looking back never does you any good". 

A shaky breath in and out. A slight squint of the eyes and a smile on the lips. I spotted B’ura B’an walking by with a giant communications device, he had his serious face on. Distraction spotted. I followed him to the table and watched as he called Nyn Kablo. He informed her that Ang Dromb was gone and that the people of New Meen had guns now. He clearly seemed displeased about that last fact. I noticed Nyn's surprised look at the news of Ang Dromb. Did she not expect us to succeed? From behind B'ura B'an, I gave a big thumbs up towards the camera, "great news, right?!".  I trust none of these people. 

B'ura B'an turned off the communicator and walked off again. I saw that Lainaki followed him inside a tent, so I let them be. Leader talks, never fun. I walked over to Kopec to help him collect some scrap. "For the pyres," he said. 

The tone of the party suddenly shifted. Apparently, Ougid'nahuk had decided he was going to execute the captured bandits. "Kopec, you need to stop them," I started, "they won't hesitate to kill us, the only other humans around here, too". Lainaki got out of the tent and yelled over at Kopec that he should intervene, which seemed to convince him. "Anna, get ready to leave," she added. Didn't have to ask me twice. I ran over to the speeder, got in and turned the engine on. 

Kopec somehow managed to convince Ougid'nahuk that it was better that the humans knew they had to fear him and let them spread the word, than it was to kill them. The bandits were released and immediately they ran off into the desert. Their chances of survival seemed slim, though. 

After that situation was defused, we all decided to get some sleep. 


I got up bright and early so I could take the crane (you know, my crane) and the steam roller's engines apart. I had an entiiiiiiire cargo levitator full of high quality scrap. Then, I was forced by Lainaki, Kopec and B'ura B'an to put it all back. All of it. The steam roller parts, alright, I could understand that, but they had given my crane to the Twi'leks without consulting me. I felt hurt and humiliated. By the time I was done, it was already noon. 

Then, we left for Nabat, but not before paying Ang Dromb's place a visit. We found a safe, but couldn't get it open. We did find some interesting emails on his computer though. 

"Yes it’s a risky business. I’m amazed Trex managed to get away with that droid technician Sivor without causing the whole thing to fall down on our heads. You never know with kriffing bugs, with their clades and castes and such. Annoy the one on top and you lose every other link in the chain. Start from scratch. I thought this whole deal was going to fall through when we lost the support of Duke Piddock, but Dimmock – he might be the bug for us."

"Decapitated! Ha! Well, make sure he never gets to hear about that! I mean, don’t get me wrong, the bugs are kriffing hypocrites on the issue if you ask me. They’re more than happy to see dozens of drones squandered in their own games, but if he knew what happened with Sivor, it’d be all over for the deal. Hah, putting a techgeek in the ring against you! What a way to go."



The place was bustling when we arrived back at Nabat. There were stalls everywhere, the market was buzzing. On our way to Nyn's, Kopec swore he spotted Thwheek, the Kubaz bounty hunter, in the crowd. I dismissed it and called him a racist for assuming all Kubaz look alike. 

Nyn greeted us warmly when we arrived and quickly introduced us to a short and stout Bhotan, named Ota. He had some very interesting news for us… 

(to be continued: part 2 – The Party)

S1.7 - Main Story entry - "The good, the bad, and the hangover"
Lainaki - Date unknown, Ryloth

That damn Twi’lek… A bucket of piss, really? He really thinks he’s the man now we’re on his home planet. Sometimes I wish I left him in the desert. He didn’t get me though, but I did get him! He will be smelling like piss all day. I guess it’s up to me to take the guard for the rest of the night after all.

The other Twi’lek were having the time of their lives, partying all night long. The ones we asked to guard the prisoners even left their post to join the party. But this time I made sure we stripped them of everything and tightened the ropes quite well.

Zachary was the first one to wake up, out of the entire village. He found some food, checked on the thugs and decided to take on the guard for the rest of the morning. As long as the village was sleeping, someone had to be on guard.  Before leaving we discussed that we won’t be attacking Ang Dromb’s hideout today. With all those hangovers, it wouldn’t bode well. Now I don’t really have anything to do, so I did a quick check of the status of that crane we ‘acquired’.

One of the first Twi’lek who woke up was Geoff. I engaged with him in some small talk, congratulating him on his victory in last night’s drinking competition between him and Zachary. Geoff tells me he’d like to have another competition. Well, he said: “GEOFF WANNA PLAY AGAIN”. Zachary interrupted by telling Geoff that Kopec is a much better drinker. Geoff picked up the nearest barrel of booze and stomped off to the tents.

Afterwards, we heard Geoff had found Kopec in the sand showers. Sadly, Kopec managed to convince Geoff that a drinking competition with him would not be fun since Geoff would win anyways.

Zachary decided to go ‘talk’ with the thugs. I was not that interested in seeing naked men so I decided to go practice with the new blaster pistol we took from those thugs. He didn’t have any success getting information out of them anyway.

So then it happened again: B’ura B’an and Kopec had another ‘debate’. I guess that happened in the sand showers as well. The entire village could hear them ‘expressing their arguments’. It was an interesting topic though. B’ura B’an wanted our spare guns to distribute them among his people. Kopec didn’t seem to like that for some obscure reasons. It reminded me of the debate with the apprentice legislature years ago, about the Military Creation Act. While they were having their little fight, I asked some villagers if they wanted to try to shoot these blasters as well. I guess B’ura B’an isn’t that big of an idol we thought, even when they can hear him shout “Give my people some damn blasters!” they still didn’t accept my offer. Except for Geoff, but I tried to make him promise to listen to me and apparently he doesn’t like authority… Aametseri, his wife, did manage to calm him down. But I think I might have scared her when trying to explain what happened.

I decided to take matters into my own hands that afternoon. Zachary and I approached B’ura B’an with the offer of some blasters if we can train the Twi’lek in using them as well. He eagerly accepted and 5 minutes later the entire town was lined up ready for training. Zachary proved to be an excellent tutor (I’m starting to like this guy) and after a while, some of the people started to hit their targets, once in a while that is.

Should have kept someone on guard duty though, late in the afternoon three construction vehicles approached the village. I ran to Kopec, who was apparently sleeping, and still naked, against a rock. Zachary selected the four best gunners, but the other Twi’lek start panicking when Ang Dromb got out of his vehicle and started shouting threats through a megaphone. B’ura B’an managed to calm his people down and took them all to the mine, where Kopec joined them a little later, finally clothed (but still stinking of piss).

Ang Dromb gave us five minutes to give ourselves up, more than enough time to prepare our defences. After those five minutes, the vehicles started moving into the village. The steamroller passed near me and I opened fire on the driver. Meanwhile, Kopec managed to convince the Twil’ek to fight. They split up into two groups, one of which joined me. The other group went with Kopec to the opposite side of the village, while Zachary was in the middle, all on his own.

By the time the Twi’lek arrived at my location, I had disabled the driver already. Sadly, two other thugs on the steamroller had returned fire and hit my leg real bad. I can take it though, I’m not a whiner like Kopec. Zachary managed to disable the bulldozer driver as well, the vehicle closest to Kopec’s side of the village. With the help of the Twi’lek, it didn’t take long to take down the other two thugs on the steamroller. We did hear some scream from a Twi’lek on the other side of the village.

Zachary decided it was time to take out the loading truck, the middle vehicle occupied by Ang Dromb. He threw a grenade straight into the trailer itself. Ang Dromb was very pissed about this and took out a repeating blaster rifle. He unloaded on the angry mob of Twi’leks near Kopec. I will never forget what I heard next. “GEOFF IS KILLING BAAAAAH!!” I will miss this guy for sure…

Zachary then came up with this genius idea to push the unload button so Ang Dromb would be thrown out of the back of the vehicle. (I really though I saw him trying to climb into the trailer himself though, so perhaps the unloading wasn’t planned?) Ang Dromb had a pop at Zachary with his repeating blaster before succumbing under the fire of the Twi’leks. I think I saw Ougid'nahuk getting the killing shot. The last two thugs quickly left the scene, while we all grouped around Geoff’s body (except maybe one or two Twi’lek who stood around the other dead body).

S1.6 - Main Story entry - "Dealing with an Ang-sty situation"
Zachary - Date unknown, Ryloth

Dear logbook,

Ya know, I don't usually write these as a diary entries anymore, or extensively curse in writing. BUT, What the fuck happened today/tonight o.O?! You know, this was supposed to be some kind of easy gig, play bodyguard for Nahosa for a bit, get some capital, lay low, stay out of the empire's sight, not get involved into more rebellious activity, have some free time,….

Yeah, like that would happen, ever. And I'm starting to doubt not just my own integrity, rotten away by my occupation as it is, but the integrity of some of my companions as well…

So, yesterday. Or more like yesternight.

It started out relatively calm, at the communal dinner-table. I came up with a plan or two while I was driving Lainaki back to New Meen and was explaining it to Kopec and Lainaki over a bowl of gruel. In the middle of the table, Anna, exhausted from these stressful days, was asleep next to her bowl of food, the Leks giving her a wide berth after what happened before. She had fallen into her soup with a loud thunk, but Lainaki was kind enough to get her out and give her a comfortable blanket. My employer was nowhere to be found, I think I last saw him, still knocked out, in some tent. Or maybe it was the speeder? B'ura B'an was sitting on the other end of the table, together with the village chief. I think he's called Usop Guru or something like that?

Anyways, after explaining that I might have taunted/convinced some of the thugs to pay us a nightly visit, and how we can turn this to our advantage, Kopec wanders over to BB and starts talking to him. Lainaki and I join a bit later, and Kopec seems to be trying to convince BB to let the miners fight. He doesn't seem too keen on the plan. A bit odd, on the way here, Kopec wouldn't stop yabbering on how much of a hero this guy's supposed to be. They agree on the fact that if the miners want to fight, they can fight, and BB will take care of those who don't. We agree on a couple of signals,  and I give the outline of the ambush plan again, this time to the chief mainly. 

Lainaki, probably bored since this is the third time she's hearing all this (and she claims to have a good memory), wandered off for a bit.

Halfway through hammering out the details, we hear a piercing shriek coming from warehouse/shack were we kept the joyriding bozos. I leapt to my feet and sprinted towards the sound. Behind me, I could hear Kopec addressing the Leks, and soon after, the rumbling of many feet. I stormed inside, saw Lainaki fending four muscleheads with a knife, and without thinking, hammered the closest one. I could feel the impact of the blow reverberating inside my arm, and he fell backwards, blood pouring from his nose.  Adrenaline pumping, I took position close to Laiks. A blink and a breath later, the miners swarmed inside. They tore up the thugs, hopped on a cocktail of fear and rage.

Dammit Kopec, I hope you can keep them under control. 

The end result was not a pretty sight. At least the crowds bloodlust seemed sated with the thugs, and we were left alone. Kopec joined us, outside, while the Leks, disturbingly, where mutilating the corpses further even starting to crucify them, and starting a party at the same time. Given their mental state, I refrained from acting. luckily, Lainaki managed to convince Kopec to convince the miners to temporarily halt their gruesome activities.

At this point, I started looking for the guns the thugs had, since we have been more or less outgunned up until this point. I found two intact blasters, and a broken one I reckon we can strip for repair parts later. Together with Kopec, we also patch up some of my wounds and do the same to our intrepid academic.

Once again, we outline the plan, and during the discussion, Kopec has a mayor falling out with mr BB. Some harsh words are exchanged, with BB claiming Kopec has turned his idyllic little mining town into the breeding ground of a bunch of murderous human-haters. Can't say I disagree, but there's something to be said for not being pushed around by any two-bit thug with a gun. Unless I'm the one doing the pushing ofc. Kopec's rethoric about freedom is dangerous though, I've heard all this shit somewhere else before >.<, and it didn't turn out well…

Anyways, we finally start on preparations. Kopec gives a rousing speech to the Leks, getting them definitely riled up for the evening. I prepare a masterful display of pyrotechnics, and Lainaki takes up position as the lookout.

A couple of hours into the night, Lainaki spots something approaching, and the plan unfolds:

- 4 Thugs "sneak" into the camp

- Lainaki is "discovered"

- Thugs run after Lainaki, to the center of the camp. Lainaki is humped by a Thug.

- Kopec reveals himself, delivers ultimatum one. He fails

- Zachary flips some switches on the Turntable. And Geoff lights up one of the thugs on the cross he is carrying.

- Magnificent explosions happen, deafening and dazzling, beauty beyond reproach.

- Kopec delivers ultimatum 2: Electric Boogaloo. Surrender or die, while the Twi'leks are closing in around the smoke screen.

- Thugs loose bladder control, try to escape, find themselves surrounded.

And so we took 4 of Ang Dromb's thugs in captivity, to replace the 4 we lost earlier. This time we take the time to strip (Lainaki, you foxy old lady), before dumping them in the warehouse together with a guard. We agreed to split guard duties over the night, and then the party broke loose, the Leks finally allowed to relax.

And then bloody Geoff stormed at us, holding a barrel of what I presume should be labeled as alcohol (it tasted like Bantha piss). Apparently Kopec had promised a drinking contest, with me as a contestant. Kopec, fuck you and fuck your bloody promises. I don't even drink. much.

Predictably, I loose, and loosen the contents of my stomach swiftly after. That's about all I can remember of the evening. That and the smell of my own puke >.>.

Apparently Kopec and Lainaki had a fight after? Something involving a bucket of piss? You know, I'm not going to judge, everyone has a kink, but seriously, don't wake me up for it.

Enough rambling, signing out,

Limp the Drunk

S1.5 - Main Story Entry - "It's always high noon somewhere on Ryloth"
Kopec - Date unknown, Ryloth

It was around the time that the second blaster shot had hit me in the back that I realized that I should really start thinking several more steps ahead during these altercations. I had never been the type of person to stand in the line of fire and there I was again; unarmed, hands-bound, running away from thugs, directly in the line of fire.  Hell, it had hardly been 24 hours since our little run ins with the imperial forces and the strangely able guard droids in Mos Shuuta.

But, I have got to hand it to my comrades, they know how to defend themselves. Especially Zachary, he's one tough bastard. I should remember thanking him for waiting to blow up the cave till I got out and the others for not hitting me during the fire fight. However, I guess this is how it's going to be from now on, and until I find some people to do the fighting for me, I should look into getting my hands on a blaster. 

After Zacheri untied me, we patched Ana up as well as we could only to be interrupted by a terrible shrieking noise coming from inside the cave. Nahosa didn't seem phased at all as he calmly continued his beauty sleep (I guess he must have hit his head a bit harder than we thought). While Lainaki assured me that she had come across a Hutt making a very similar noise (and Zacheri expressing his disbelieve behind her back by mimicking what that would look like) , we noticed a speeder in the distance. It appeared to come from the other flank of the bluf and Lainai suggested that we'd go take a look. But because neither I or any of the others was inclined to join her on this trip, she let it go.

In the meanwhile, Anna had been patching up the speeder. I'm 80% sure that she literally did it with one eye shut, whether it was because she was showing off or because she was starting to show early signs of a sun stroke. B'ura B'an decided to keep a close eye on her. As soon as Anna got the speeder running again, Zachery crashed on the backseat beside his employer. I guess the heat must have gotten to him as well. The rest of the trip was rather uneventful besides some weird incident of "who's hand is this?" between our two sleeping beauties and B'ura B'an. Oh, and Anna found some incredibly stylish sunglasses in the glove compartment to compliment her look. 

A little while later we arrived at New Meen. B'ura b'an had already told us that his people (well, our people… my people) had been living under duress for the past few months, ever since a new landowner had started buying up all surrounding land. But still, I was quite shocked when I saw the conditions my brothers and sisters lived in. The mining 'town' of New Mean turned out to be not much more than a small collection of tents and improvised shelters; and the few stone constructions were in such a sorry state that they only amplified the rag tag feel of the encampment. Upon our arrival we were greeted by around twenty of my kinsman, what later turned out to be almost entire population of the town. The crowd immediately rejoiced at the return of their leader, but it couldn't hide the overall gloomy atmosphere. After noticing the worried look on B'ura B'ans' face, me and Lainaki decided to join them to discuss the situation. In the meanwhile Ana and Zachary discussed if they could possibly combine the blaster scraps of the blown up thugs from earlier into a functioning weapon. 

After a quick conversation with B'ura B'an and the spokesman of the town, the situation turned out to be pretty grim. Ang Drombb, a human businessman, who had bought up all surrounding lands had now set his eyes on New Mean. And after B'ura B'an had repeatedly refused his low ball offers, Ang Dromb had turned to intimidation tactics. Thugs would regularly come to the village to destroy equipment and threaten my fellow Twi'leks with violence. Upon hearing this my stomach turned and my blood began to boil. No one oppresses or threatens my people, and especially not some second class thug in a fancy suit. (who as far as we could suspect is in bed with Teemo, why else would Trex have captured B'ura B'an?) 

Lainaki and I consorted with our comrades and after a quick discussion where I pointed out to Ik that the our potential business agreement with New Mean wouldn't entail much if my people couldn't mine in peace, the others agreed to help. Anna didn't seem fully comfortable with the idea of staying there for a while (I hoped it was the sand and sun and not my kind that was bothering her), but even she realized that leaving our 'suppliers' hanging would be bad for business, and that no moneys meant no new toys for her. 

The idea of an immediate direct military confrontation with Ang Dromb was put aside in favor of a ploy to get more intelligence about his operation. (B'ura B'an had told my in private that he at all cost wanted to avoid direct involvement of Free Ryloth). Lainaki, Ana and Zachary would travel to Ang Drombs base of operations (which only laid a few milest to the south) in the morning to get a sense of what we were dealing with. Na'hosa and I would stay in New Meen to see what we could do to help out here. As night fell over New Mean, the town held a little celebration for the return of their leader. And for a few hours everyone seemed to forget their dire situation; seeing smiles on the faces of my brothers and sisters reminded my of the resilience of my people. I ended the night bonding with B'ura B'an (who seemed tired after years of struggling for Twi'lek independence) and 'convinced' him again of the fact that it's better to die fighting as a free Twi'lek than to live a life of oppression. 

Being among my people again and looking out over the seemingly endless desert had brought back many memories, making it almost impossible to catch some sleep. So I decided I might as well keep watch; catching some thugs in the act could benefit Lainaki in her negotiations in the morning.  It was about 2 hours after the others had gone to sleep that I started to hear a rumbling in the distance and after a few moments I spotted what appeared to be a giant crane heading straight for the village.

I sounded the alarm and while me and B'ura B'an tried to get as many people to safety, Lainaki and Zachary devoted their attention to stopping the monstrosity. Zachary fired a couple of warning shots, but the heavily intoxicated driver and crew, who appeared to having the time of their life (bottles in hand), could not care less. Lainaki managed to throw her grappling hook on the vehicle as it passed her , but collision was only moments away. It was at that point that Zachary saved the day (… well night, well, the village) by grabbing a hold of the 'passenger ladder', climbing up, knocking out the driver, and slamming the breaks. The crane only lightly grazed the rag tag warehouse. 

The intoxicated crew members did not stand a chance against the wrath of limp. He knocked them out cold and dragged the supposed leader back to his tent. Damn, I knew the guy had a temper, but after seeing him in that state put his everyday behavior in a whole new perspective. However, he did have every right to be furious. These thugs most likely belonged to Ang Drombb's outfit and I didn't think they would have been polite enough to let us leave our tents before running us over like cattle. I asked Geoff (one of the toughest looking bystanders) to tie up the party goers and to make sure they would not wake up comfortably.  He and some friends were very happy to oblige and it was at that point that I picked up on the situation that was slowly developing. [Editor note: Twi'leks can communicate emotions/feelings/thoughts via Leku]
Some of my kinsman were wondering why we would grant them the mercy they would not grant us, and I could not hide the fact that I agreed, pretty strongly even. On top of that I saw a unique opportunity to turn a tired, hopeless, beaten down tribe into a bloodthirsty vengeful crowd. They would not need our help, they could help themselves and storm the encampment of their oppressor by night.

Geoff must picked up that I agreed with him and suddenly started shouting: DEATH TO THE HUMANS as he ran off towards the mine entrance. Without me noticing the bystanders had picked up rocks and knifes, while starting to slowly surround not only the prisoners but also Lainaki and Anna. (Limp was asleep in his tent) Anna pulled her two blasters and started shouting how she would take at least seven of them down with her. (you've got love the fire that girl has). I have to admit that I contemplated giving the prisoners to the crowd while trying to convince them that my comrades were not the bad guys. But when Geoff returned with a gigantic powered on drill while alternating between DEATH TO THE HUMANS and DRILL THE HUMANS. I realized that fueling the blood lust would put my friends in a very dangerous position. I signaled B'ura B'an that I needed his help and he was able to defuse the situation. Anna was only inclined to put her guns away when we told her that she could have the crane. (she ran off immediately).

The rest of the night passed relatively peacefully and in the morning I heard from Zachary that Anna wouldn't be joining them on their trip because she was still passed out. (this later turned out to be because Lainaki had stuffed the 4 unconscious thugs on top of Anna in the crane cockpit, preventing her from catching some sleep). I spent my morning helping out around the mine, which gave me the opportunity to talk to every able bodied Twi'lek in order to convince him or her to take up arms if negotiations would fail. At the very least I was able to convince Geoff. 

Zachary and Lainaki returned around midday. As Anna joined us for lunch, they told us what they had learned. Lainaki had met with Ang Drombb who turned out to be nothing more than a thug in a fancy suit, and a particularly foul mouthed one at that. A peaceful solution didn't seem likely anymore. Luckily they did get away with a good notion of the camp layout, firepower and numbers. On top of that Zachary might have tricked some of Ang Drombb's thugs into a trap by telling a story of how he once dealt with reluctant land owners.

As we considered our options around the dinner table, an idea began to form which included the crane, explosives, and taking out the booze supply of Ang Drombb's operation….
