The Runner was crashed, somewhere on the shores of an ocean of junk and debris. Jawas lurked among the ruins of ten thousand years of galaxy conquest.
They headed, eventually, for Scraphead Point – the IsoTech Facility hidden in the mounds of ancient space craft hulls. While Praxus Prime is technically an Imperial Planet, all of the random factions have some kind of footing here. Our destination is one of Reom’s labs – where we’re supposed to drop off Dr. Crutala and her coveted bio-tech knowledge.
Disguising the good Doctor so she doesn’t look like her crew photos from decades ago, the team landed and went to meet their contact. As far as they knew, Roem’s people expected them to come back with lost technology… not the brains behind the science!
Norta, a chubby Rodian with a reputation among the Underworld, met them on the landing pad. Replaced after being blinded by a nasty chemical spray, Norta’s eyes are cybernetic implants. While Tako greets him, the Wookie* Tarova* scans his surface thoughts for any deviant motives. It seemed relatively legit, so… they all felt much more comfortable.
Norta escorted us inside, while GNS8, Captain Hursell, and Dr. Crutala stayed on the ship for safety. Tako, Vengg, IT, Tarova and Kahn proceeded inside. Tako and North hit the negotiation tables and Tako convinces the Rodian for a higher advance – 4,000 credits.
Norta was excited at having Dr. Crutala, to the point he even offered the Team some scavenge jobs in the junk yard. Yahoo. And Kahn, being the unsavory character that he is, used The Force to convince Norta that he’s already found the much-needed repair parts. Tako was not happy of the deception.
Apparently, The Longwalk Crew are a team of Jawas that circle the equator, and have a Force Witch traveling with them. Kahn and Tarova are interested!
Ship Repairs – 1500 Credits
Ship’s Countermeasures – 2700 credits.
Kahn traded a Crystal for 400 credits.
Leaving 200 credits change for Kahn.
Rosen, the planet’s expert mechanic, takes a look at the Runner to discuss improvements. Vengg and GNS8 worked out a plan for some renovations and upgrades.
Tako and Tarova went into the crew lounge, to mingle and search for some intrigue. He’s convinced, apparently, that if anyone is gonna make a move… it’s gonna come before Roem arrives.
Kahn went off to meet some nomads, apparently agreeing to some kind of charity deal.
Readying for Roem’s arrival, Tako, GNS8, and Vengg take Captain Hursell and Dr. Crutela (in disguise) to meet the ship. Tarova and Kahn stay on the Lago with the refugees and some weird sick kid in a Bacta tank.
And…. the shit hit the fan.
The Jawas at the loading dock threw off their masks and robes and were hidden Y’var spies! Brool, the Droid from the Lago, turned on the Team as well, engulfing Tako and Vengg in a flamethrower blast!
Engulfed in a flamethrowers blast, Tako stopped, dropped, and rolled for the entire fight, only to wake up in a medical lab, desperately needing a Bacta Tank. However, Roem was also here, was delighted to see the Team had brought Dr. Crutela. As the battle continued to rage between security and Y’var raiders.
Caught in the crossfire in the hangar bay after GNS8 set some explosive charges, Tako jury-rigged a hover cart for moving cover. Once everyone got into their ships (The Runner and the Lago) and took off, Roem’s ship also escaped the raid.
After clearing the planet’s atmosphere, they jumped to Warp Speed.
