The Edge of the Rebellion

Toil and trouble ...

Flying through the ancient space-slug tunnels that riddled the asteroid, the party first discovered Godon’s one-man fighter, abandoned and in need of repair. Deciding that stealth was called for more than brute assault, the heroes donned space suits and searched the remainder of the asteroid on foot, eventually finding Dobah’s hideout in a huge cave deep within the asteroid’s innards. There they discovered his YV-666, the Vagrant, supplying power to a pressure seal and lighting for the pirate crew. Although they attempted a stealthy approach, the team’s bulky spacesuits complicated the approach and the ship’s laser cannon erupted in a hail of laser-y death. The heroes split up, approaching the ship from all directions, confusing the pirate within and gaining access through the open cargo bay ramp.

A mighty battle ensued, with some of the team attempting to overpower the pirates entrenched in the cargo bay, while Grognox, the team’s ugnaught technician, snuck in through the ship dorsal airlock, only to be met by the pirate first mate. After a great deal of blood and tears, the heroes emerged triumphant and entered the bowels of the ship, in search of Dobah himself. Shortly, they discovered him holed up in the ship’s cockpit with his new ally Godon the Rodian bounty hunter. Although Hod tried to convince Godon that he was better off switching sides and abandoning his pirate ally, Godon was unconvinced. It turns out, though, that the dialogue was just a ruse, as Grognox had discovered a maintenance hatch that led below the floor into the cockpit behind the barricaded duo. Armed with several stun grenades, Tali, snuck behind the Aqualish and the Rodian and surprised them from behind. Of course, the two weren’t taken down as easily as that, and a final climactic battle unfolded. At the end of the day, the party of heroes was once again victorious.

Having earned the spoils of battle, a search was conducted, and the team decided to take this much larger ship for their own. The team also found several containers of glitterstim, a veritable fortune’s worth of the illegal drug. Deciding to avoid the Imperial bounty on Dobah’s head, the heroes took the pirate lord to Sleheyron and Thakba the Hutt. Godon and Zukata were sent off with a strong warning to consider a new occupation. Thakba happily paid the bounty for Dobah and threw his business rival to the gladiator pit attached to his palace, whence no one ever returns. Thakba also bought the spice from the heroes, for a very reasonable price and a promise of further work in a short time.

Indeed, Thakba soon made it clear that he had, in a card game, recently won a mining operation on the planet Gavos. Wanting to check out the condition of the mine and collect his first yearly cut of 100,000 credits, Thakba sent the party to examine the state of the mine and to bring back his money. After agreeing to the job, the party was then surprised to witness a savage battle between Gamorrean guards right there in Thakba’s throne room. It was never made clear what prompted the fight, even with the rather flimsy reference to Gamorrean mating season by Genko, Thakba’s major domo. At the end of the day, though, only the Gamorreans were involved and no one seemed permanently damaged.

Trouble Brewing
The adventure begins ...

The camera opens on a shot of a cloud-covered planet, serene in the distance with its background of stars. Suddenly, a small freighter zooms into view, followed by a pair of screaming TIE fighters in hot pursuit, blaster bolts bouncing off the freighter’s shields. The pilot, Ossis Neeth (or so he’s calling himself these days), jinks and rolls, desperately trying to evade the attacks. Eventually, after some telling hits, he is able to plot the course to a random sector and leaps to hyperspace, safe … for now.

Their destination is Formos, a forbidding world with few inhabitants. At the spaceport, the team of heroes manage to engage a young rodian woman, named Zukata, who is looking for her brother, a fledgling bounty hunter who may be in over his head. Named Godon, he was hunting a local aqualish pirate lord who went by the name of Bandin Dobah. Shortly after agreeing to help Zukata find her brother, one of our party, an elderly fellow named Hod, was accosted by a band of ruffians who, it turns out, work for this Dobah character. Hod wasted no time in humiliating the thugs’ leader, who returned to his local base to collect some backup and firepower in order to exact revenge. Little did the bandit know that he had been followed by the team’s resident slicer and stalker, Tali. She commed the location of the thugs’ hideout, and the ambushers became the ambushed. After a brief but bloody fight, led by Shorajji, a powerful and fearsome Dathomirian, the party was able to rescue a kidnapped astromech droid (R4-W9) who knew the location of Dobah’s hideout on an asteroid in a nearby system.

Hoping to find Zukata’s brother, deal out a little payback, and reap the hefty bounty on Dobah’s head, the party leapt to their starcraft and flew to the asteroid field in question. Unfortunately, the pirates had been alerted to the approach of the heroes and had a sentinel droid and a pilot in a modified fighter on standby. During the ensuing battle, the pirates were defeated, but not without significant damage to the heroes’ ship, which was just barely able to continue its limping final leg to the asteroid base.
