Darkness Falls

Beginner Box Adventure
So, no Ion Canon I take it?

Today we took on the Beginner Box adventure again, but this time with two new players.
Andrew and Andy took on the roles of Pash and Lawhhrick while John and Mirza played Vex and Oskara respectively. The adventure went well as Pash proved his abilities as a charming want to be pimp, Lawhhrick was a Wookie Shield that never got shot, Vex freed a fellow droid from oppression by the man, and Oskara got to drop a water tower on some security droids. The group managed to fight their way through Mos Shuuta and escaping with destruction in their wake. The adventure went so well that Andrew and Andy, newbies to paper and pen RPGs, decided that they would be joining us for the full campaign.

Highlights:

  • Lawhhrick being able to blend in at the cantina’s bar, unnoticed.
  • Vex proving just how ungraceful a droid really is.
  • Pash wooing the Cantina’s Twi’lek dancer while using her as a human shield.
  • Pash pimping out the Cantina’s Twi’lek dancer to the Junk Shop owner to get the HMI
  • Oskara not killing Pash for trying to pimp her out as well for a Blaster Rifle.
  • The group convincing the Junk Shop owner to give them an Ion Canon which they never received.
  • Vex freeing the Junk Shop’s R5 unit and convincing him to join the group.
  • Lawhhrick smashing Overseer Brynn’s wrist in the door, nearly severing it before smashing the dreaded fallen chair barrier.
  • The group fleeing from the spaceport control facility out a backdoor.
  • Oskara taking down the water with a lucky shot that fell right on top of two security droids
  • Pash standing above a prone and wounded Trek and shooting him in the head.
  • Vex stunning 5 enemies with a single grenade after they were able to nosily sneak up on him.
  • Oskara deciding several times to go against better judgement and actually help her idiot “friends” instead of taking off.
  • Pash using his flying skills to get a TIE fighter to crash and die in debris.

Best Quotes:

  • “This is my bitch now.”
  • “She does a really good job of draining your oil if you know what I mean.”

A Simple Job
You Find Him Very Annoying but Some How Charming

Today we started the official campaign, although it unfortunately had to be a short session. As with any classic role-playing game, we started in a cantina. Our group started off as individuals with no association with each other but all looking for work or information. A representative from Teemo the Hutt stopped in to offer a job that was quickly accepted by all. The oddly assembled group of 2 humans, a wookie, a trandoshan, and a togruta hopped on a ship of Teemo’s, the Ao Var, not knowing the full details of their mission. After a long flight of getting to know each other they arrived at an asteroid field to discover a container carrying what they assume to be their cargo. As a few of them got to work doing some space acrobatics, an unknown ship appeared and attacked them. With some skill and luck everyone was able to make it back on board with all the goods before attempting to make an escape….

The Group:
Bearrokk Urmomma
B. O. B.
Jhoren Modun

  • Lana making a great shot into the blackness of space only to actually hit the hidden enemy vessel.

IN SPACCCCCEEEEEE!!!
Spaceballs the Crowbar

Last we left off the group was under attack while trying to recover goods for Teemo the Hutt. Fortunately, everything went well and all was okay. Just kidding. They got the goods, but B.O.B. was injured and fell unconscious for the session. The group managed to escape their attacker, but something might have gotten aboard. While investigating in the three available spacesuits a robot spider an assassin droid attacked. Everyone quickly learned that weapons fire tends to make a spacesuit in non-atmospheric conditions a curse and that some fights are just not easy…

Lifties = Boobies

This session saw a chance for some planetary adventure for the group. It started off with an unhappy Teemo because of the damage caused to his ship, the Ao Var. This encouraged the group to take another job in hopes of working off the debt. Teemo was even kind enough to provide some payment to the group. Before departure, the group resupplied and made some friends with the shop keeps including Bengara Dean. Traveling between shops Lana noticed she was being followed and confronted the mysterious person with help from her “stealthy” friends. After that, the group left in two heavy speeder trucks with a representative of Teemo’s, a Twi’lek named Oskara. Spending as much time traveling as they could, the group made it to the outskirts of Bestine where they stopped for food. Soon a speeder that appeared to be following them ducked behind a building where the group went to confront them and faced an explosive battle…

Unconscious Agility
Trucks Are Heavy

After making a speeder into an I.E.D. (improvised explosive devise…of AWESOME), gathering the swag left behind became the first task this session. As the group salvaged the few unburned goodies, their heavy truck speeders were heard taking off. Luckily, Jhoren used his quick reflexes and shot the driver of the second truck which allowed him time to jump in. A chase quickly ensued with everyone crowding into and on top of the remaining truck. Unfortunately, pushing the truck to catch up caused unknown damage which later resulted in a loss of an ally. Having caught up to the stolen vehicle in a canyon, the group was shot at. This caused a nasty firefight where everyone was forced to push through pain. Quickly, three members of the group were out of the fight as a skilled bounty hunter is gunning the group down from beside his ship. Luckily, help comes in the form of a mysterious person who seems to be able to move objects at will…

Worst Stop Ever
How to Make Friends with Local Farmers

Healing became the first priority at the start of this session. Bearrokk, the go to doctor, was awoken from his over-stressed state and got to work patching up a lot of hurt. After that looting the dead, including the much flattened Oskara, and checking out the ship became the next items on the ‘To Do’ list. Goodies were found, the ship was identified as Bew, and the helpful stranger, Stav’el, decided to accompany the group to Mos Eisley. The group continued their delivery with the two heavy speeder trucks and Jhoren circling above in Bew. it was decided to take a break in Carnthout where Rico, Bearrokk, and Stav’el went into town to check things out. As Rico got some overpriced stimpacks, shouting and shooting was heard and Stav’el wasn’t in sight. With everyone making haste to investigate, Stav’el was found surrounded by a mob of moisture farmers. With what appears to be a baby in his arms, Stav’el stood firm and appeared to be keeping the child from a woman near by. The group soon gathered around the farmers and started aggressive negotiations…

After a few setbacks, the group finally makes it to Mos Eisley. Everything got complicated fast when Jhoren was forced to land at a spaceport and was greeted by Imperial Troops. He was wanted in questioning regarding the Massacre of Carnthout and for flying a ship owned by a known fugitive. The others had to sneak in and rescue Jhoren. They arrived just in time to bump into him sneaking out thanks to help from an old friend. Before leaving, the Imperial Troops were alerted and fired on them. Fortunately, a well placed explosive from Lana ended their pursuit. Then, in order to avoid being seen by onlookers, the group entered a cantina where some angry men were seeking out Rico…

Even My Kid Has a Comlink
What Did I Get Into?

This session turned into a lot of life lessons for our group and the best way to learn them, is the hard way. Those lessons began with a drunken man deciding to take a nap in the trucks of our group. At the same time some of the group decided to get a vital piece of equipment from a nearby shop. Upon their return, Imperials investigating the spaceport across the street spotted the tall hairy wookiee. This lead to an intense battle in the lobby of the hotel which forced a rush to the trucks to get out of town. During the journey the data pad found back in the outskirts of Bestine was discovered to have the name of Balla the Hutt on it. After a short trip the group finally made it to Jabba’s Palace so they can drop off their cargo. This left them with time to relax in guest rooms and meet new people. The partaking of pleasures was however cut short by the squealing of Jabba’s guards and the sound of gunfire…

Don't Cry Over Smacked Comlinks
Monkey Leashes are Required

Sometimes things get out of control and today’s session had that feel for the group. It started with continuing to explore the dangerous home of Jabba the Hutt that now rang regularly of gunfire. Fortunately, after a blast took out the lights in a hallway, the kitchen was quickly found. There a mysterious Bothan was hiding. After a brief search and planning, the group split with Jhoren and Rico staying behind only to be confronted by the gamorrean guards. A small conversation, a couple bad reactions, and a few hits later Jhoren and Rico were knocked out with the rest of the gamorreans approaching the forewarned remaining members of the party. Explosives and blockades are put up but will they be enough to keep the group from becoming pin cushions to the gamorreans…..
