From the Journal of Niik
We have bought a new ship which can hold our
Z95s. We meet with the Admiral. We are wanted by the Empire. The
Jedi has the largest bounty on him. We need to head to Alderan to
get new identities and faces. G6 has gone with our money. We suspect
that he has gone to Rodia. We head to Alderan where experimental
techniques are offered up alongside facial reconstructions. Praz
gets a cybernetic eye. G6 has set himself up as a crimelord is
offering information. Niiks brother sends him a message. It seems G6
has bought a super heavy battle droid and 6 other G6s and remote
Telans droids and technologies is the Teelan family
business. Niiks brother has taken over the business after the death of his
family. The family is rich. We are offered fancy foods. Niik doesn’t
remember his brother being so nice. He knows of the bounty on our heads. We
are to go on the great hunt. Telks company is competing against us. Our prey
is a Rankor. They are huge beasts which regenerate have low light vision and
From the Journal of Orr
Still smarting from the knowledge that the opposing team have
already started out ahead of us, we head off into the jungle.
Unfortunately Praz and Junas lead us in circles for a couple of
hours first, before finally spotting the tracks of seven Rodians
crossing our path. We decide to follow the them and stop a couple of
hours later to sleep, only Junas falling out of his hammock disturbs
what is otherwise a quiet night.
We set off early following the Rodians, a minor scrape with some stinging
trees causes us to divert, accidentally making us take a shortcut back into
the trail of the Rodians, and a couple of kliks later we hear the noise of
blaster fire in the distance. We pickup the pace and jog toward it as
darkness begins to fall around us. A noise comes crashing toward us, and i
take a blind shot as a Rodian comes crashing out of the trees and dies to my
shot! In mock grief I call out in anger at the gods!
As we discuss plans we hear a crunch in the trees, and then a second
crunch... could there be two Rancor's, not one? We retreat to regroup and
wait for daylight.
We approach a pit full of carcasses, with Praz and I up front. We spot a
single Rancor and take aimed shots at it. Praz scores an awesome hit to the
beast, and it roars in pain. We hear an answering roar from the distance and
Praz scores another hit as my shot goes wide. Niik shouts a rallying cry and
we advance. The Rancor turns and runs away from us. We prepare for the
likely charge of the second beast.
It charges at us, jumping the pit toward me, Disco and Wenton. We all
unload on the Rancor as it flies through the air peppering it with
blasterfire, and it unleashes a bellow. Junas takes it in a force grip,
squeezing its neck as Wenton rolls past it, lashing out with his lightsaber
in a cleverly hidden attack across its calf.
The baby Rancor returns, jumping across the pit at Junas, stamping down
and crushing him to the floor. Half the droids drop out of the sky, and the
others unleash blaster fire on Niik, Praz and Kel. Disco backs out of range
of the Rancor, Junas's grip now broken. Big Game Hunter Disco takes the
rancor out with a shot to the head and it topples backwards into the pit.
Seconds later I land a shot on the baby Rancor, killing it. The body falls
on Junas trapping him there.
Wenton hurls the baby Rancor off Junas, through the air at one of the
camera droids whose shield shimmers as it absorbs the bulk of the hit. All 4
remaining droids take shots at Wenton, but he deflects one blast bolt back
at the same droid and it explodes in a shower of sparks. Junas slams the two
damaged droids together and they explode in mid air, crashing to the ground.
The final droid flies toward Niik and Praz, exploding in mid air. Niik falls
over unconcious, a fallen tree narrowly saving him from the brunt of the
explosion. Wenton performs some mystic tricks to heal Niik using the force.
Five minutes later the shuttlecraft that dropped us off lands in the pit
to pick us up. Niik's brother Nuuk lodges a complaint about the behaviour of
the other company, and is over the moon at our victory. Niik spends some
time in a Bacta tank while we journey back. He will purchase the information
from G6 and arrange for us to meet G6 on Belzon station where this whole
mess began some months ago.
A day later we dock at the station, and disembark into the promenade.
There are far more Empire soldiers on this station than when we were last
here, and even fewer non-humans. We head down towards Switch's cargo hold,
the address we've been given by Nuuk. Two beaten up Gamorian guards let us
through, and we discover G6 through the doors. He has attached himself to
the body of a Super Battle Droid, equipped with a sword, heavy blaster and
shoulder mounted missle launcher. Flanked by the 6 copies of himself he has
mounted the head of Switch on a pike and it looks on, eyes flickering in
some not yet dead state.
Disco runs for cover as we head inside and G6 wastes no words on us - a
missle launches from G6's shoulder exploding around me, Wenton and Kel. Praz
flicks to autofire and sprays two of the G6 clones making their shields wink
out. The G6 clones scatter and focus fire on Praz, scoring nasty hits.
Wenton charges forward and force slams G6 and two droids into the floor,
exploding one and barely scratching G6. Our onetime service bot stands and
launches a missle at Disco, Junas and Praz.
Wenton engages G6 and the cunning droid flips backwards over the throne
and launches a missile at Wenton, which explodes in the Jedi's face,
followed by three G6 clones turning to fire at Wenton in the back. Niik
races to Junas's aid, whipping a medpack from his utility belt. We focus
some autofire on the clones. We whittle their numbers down to just one clone
as Disco runs to Wenton's aid, missles and heavy blaster fire raining down
around him. As we finally knock G6's shield out and the coward runs and
dives into one of the chutes, but Praz shoots it and destroys it.
We investigate and find that the G6 droid had detached itself from the
Super Battle Droid. Switch is still repairable and the Empire pays us for
destroying G6. We also find G6's computeran d crack it gaining us 70k CR.
