JeffG: Hey Jshock, Tyg.
Tygaran: evening
Tygaran: ^ I received that info, Jshock
Jshock-GM: Ah, good.
  • Jshock-GM waits for the wookiee to arrive








Jshock-GM:

Wookiee is inbound…









Jshock-GM:

Jshock-GM:

Maybe…









Jshock-GM:

Possibly…



Drekkan has connected.








Jshock-GM:

There he is.









JeffG:

RWARRRRRGH.









Jshock-GM:

Just in case you missed it last week,
Drekkan; Xie is currently in Australia dealing with some family
emergency. Haven’t heard from him.










Jshock-GM:

If someone wants to play his bounty
hunter, awesome; otherwise I’ll run her.










Jshock-GM:

BRB, going to take a pee break before
we get started.










JeffG:

Eh, you should just run her IMO.



Tygaran is disconnected.








Drekkan:

rawr









Jshock-GM:

Well, that was obviously ill timed.



Tygaran has connected.








Tygaran:

annoying waether and EM fields…









Jshock-GM:

Uh, OK… everyone ready to go here/

  • Jaana Raeth wonders why we each have a dark

Jshock-GM:

Jshock-GM:

Though that roll from me is
technically Taliq’s. TAke it for what it is.

Jshock-GM:

Alrighty…







Jshock-GM:





SESSION RECAP





The heroes of our tale – JAANA, LOWURRA, MATHUS, and
TALIQ – have begun their escape from the clutches of the
vile gangster TEEMO. After encountering some of Teemo’s
thugs in MOS SHUUTA’s cantina, the bartender confirmed
what they suspected; the only way out was via the KRAYT
FANG, a light freighter captained by the ruthless
trandoshan mercenary named TREX.





The Krayt Fang has been grounded by Mos Shuuta
officials due to a malfunctioning HYPERMATTER REACTOR
IGNITER. After locating a replacement part from the junker
VORN and stealing it from his shop, the band has escaped
down the street and ducked into a nearby storage building
to regroup…

Jaana Raeth: "So.. someone have a plan on how to approach Trek?"
  • Mathus catches his breath.






Taliq:
  • Taliq shakes her head slowly
Mathus: "Nothing comes to mind yet."
Lowurra: Rawr uuuuururur (Maybe less violence?)
Mathus: "Less violence would be nice."
Taliq: "No clue…"
Lowurra: Hur… (though….)
Jaana Raeth: "He’s known as a ruthless merc… asking nicely is unlikely to work… Tho we do have the part he needs now."
Lowurra: Treee hukhukhuk (Isn’t he a bad guy? Violence mgiht be good here)
Mathus: "We could try to violently take over his ship… or hold the part hostage."
Mathus: "If we destroy it, he’ll be stuck here for a while."
Mathus: "Probably."
Jshock-GM: makes a check!

Successes:
None
/ Advantage: 2

Taliq: "Hmm… Mathus, you ever work on ships? Or just droids?"
Mathus: "Just droids. No one’s ever asked me to work on a ship before."
Mathus: "Well, not a ship this large. Some personal skimmers…"
Taliq: "I could be wron, but I think they usually lock the big ones to port. Especially when they don’t want them to leave."
Jshock-GM: Mathus, Knowledge check please. No difficulty.
Mathus: makes a check!

Successes: 4 / Advantage: 2
Light Side: 1 / Dark Side: 0

Jaana Raeth: "So, not only do we need to convince Trek, we need to prove to port authority the ship’s been fixed?"
Jshock-GM: The twi’lek speaks the truth. They’ve probably got a tractor beam on his ship.
  • Mathus frowns and nods.





Mathus: "Which means we gotta play nice with Trek… until we’re clear."
Lowurra: Raaaawr hurrrarag (So we negotiate?)
Jaana Raeth: "FOr starters, I guess we can go to where he is an assess his mood…"
  • Mathus nods.





Mathus: "We negotiate, and hope it goes better than getting the part did."
Mathus: (( Trying to remember, what’s this smuggler’s relationship with the Hutt? ))
Jshock-GM: You were brought in as an outsider… make a Streetwise. Call it 2d difficulty.
Mathus: Oof, just 2g… maybe someone else should make that roll.
Jaana Raeth: makes a check!
Successes: None / Advantage: 1
  • Jaana Raeth ponders








Jshock-GM:

I’ll give you a freebie for Jaana’s
Advantage; you know he’s a freelancer










Jshock-GM:

Past that, you’re not really sure.






Jaana Raeth: "I don’t think he’s a Hutt lackey…"
Mathus: "Then let’s try to make a trade to him; give him the part, and install it, in exchange for passage off Tattoine."
Mathus: "Sound good?"
Lowurra: Rrruuuuu (Good!)
Jaana Raeth: "Better than nothing"
Mathus: (( Hmm, where are we likely to find him? ))
Jshock-GM: Another know check; no diff, since someone already told you
Mathus: makes a check!
Successes: 1 / Advantage: 2
Jshock-GM: That’ll do. Docking bay Aurek is where they have his ship.
Mathus: "Let’s visit Docking Bar Aurek."
  • Lowurra hefts his vibroaxe





Jaana Raeth: "Alright.. let’s"
  • Jaana Raeth shoulders sluugthrower rifle and
    sets out


  • Mathus is ready to head out.








  • Jshock-GM:

    Alright. On foot it doesn’t take more
    than 15 mins; Mos Shuuta is pretty small.










    GM:

    A pair of droids with blaster
    rifles attached to their forearms stand at attention.




    Jshock-GM: (( you guys are walking up to the
    door I assume? ))



    Mathus: (( Yep. ))

  • Jaana Raeth steps towards the door(s)…








  • Droid guard 44:

    STATE YOUR BUSINESS



    Lowurra: (( who has face skills? ))

  • Mathus doesn’t.








  • Jshock-GM:

    Taliq has some deciet…


  • Jaana Raeth has 2 presence…


  • Mathus: (( Let’s have the wookie talk. ))





    Jaana Raeth: "We want to talk with Trek about a deal." she replies honestly
    Jshock-GM: (( oh, this should be rich ))
    Lowurra: (( or that ))
    Mathus: (( Wookies bluff well. If anyone accuses them of lying, they rip their arms off. ))
    Droid guard 44: CAPTAIN TREX HAS ASKED NOT TO BE DISTURBED
    Mathus: "Why not?"
    GM: the two droids tur to each other… quizically?
    Droid guard 44: CAPTAIN TREX HAS ASKED NOT TO BE DISTURBED
    Jaana Raeth: "Yeah, well… if he wants to get off this sandbox he’ll want to talk to us."
    Mathus: (( What skill would it be to cause a logic bomb amidst them? ))
    Jshock-GM: (( hmm, good question… gimme a sec. ))
    Jshock-GM: These are simple droids, so I’ll allow it; we’ll call it a Computers vs. their discipline – 1 Challenge.
    Mathus: makes a check!
    Successes: 1 / Advantage: 2
    Despair: 1
    Jshock-GM: Also, how are you bombing them?
    Jshock-GM: Ah. How to despair you guys…
    Jaana Raeth: (( what’s with you and despair rolls? ))
    Jshock-GM: You do succeed…
    Mathus: I’m trying to get them trapped in a loop where we were asked to meet with him, but how can they confirm it if they were told he wasn’t to be disturbed? Or how will they know when he can be disturbed?
    Mathus: Either way works.
    GM: Both droids start to emit a high pitched electronic squeal as their logic processors lock up.
    Jshock-GM: it’s LOUD.
    Mathus: (( *wonders what he could spend the Advantage on* ))
    • Mathus mutters,





    Mathus: "Get in, quickly."
    Jshock-GM: Well, let’s see; we’re out of combat. I’ve got a list up on the wiki, if you want to look at something.
    • Jaana Raeth attempts to open the doors





    Mathus: Looking at something’s good.
    GM: the doors are locked!
    Jaana Raeth: "Locked…"
    Lowurra: rawr? (Bash?)
    • Jaana Raeth looks for a place to splice to
      open them


  • Lowurra preps his wookiee lockpick








  • Jshock-GM:

    They’re slidy Mos Eisly style doors.
    MAthus, you notice the keypad; easy enough to slice if you wanted







    Jaana Raeth: makes a Perception check!
    Successes: 2 / Advantage: 1
    Droid guard 44: WEEEWEWWEEE
    • Mathus hesitates a moment, then decides to
      splice them.



    Mathus: (( Check? ))








    Jshock-GM:

    Computers. 2d diff






    Mathus: makes a check!
    Successes: 4 / Advantage: 1
    Jshock-GM: wssh
    Mathus: "Okay, act natural…"
    • Mathus strides in like he’s supposed to be
      working here.


  • Lowurra looks for a disguise… puts on a hat








  • GM:

    Droids keep emitting various high
    pitched whines…




    Jshock-GM: (( alright, moving you guys to a
    new map ))










    GM:

    A rust colored YT-1300 is here.



    Mathus: (( YT-1300? ))








    GM:

    The droids outside seemed to have
    stopped blowing their fuses.



  • Mathus shuts the doors behind them.








  • Jshock-GM:

    The ship. YT-1300 light freighter.
    Classic design.



  • Jaana Raeth looks around








  • Lowurra:

    Grup, Raaaaawrraw (Crap… what a hunk
    of junk)







    Mathus: "As long as it flies, I don’t care."
    Taliq: "Could use some work, maybe…"
    Jshock-GM: What are you guys doing?
    Mathus: Where would Vorn be here?
    Mathus: On his ship, or staying somewhere else?
    Lowurra: Hurk (Find him first, or find a way to shut down the tractor beam?)
    Jshock-GM: You don’t know…
    Mathus: Good point: how would we shut down the tractor beam here?
    Jshock-GM: There’s a control room to your right…
    Jaana Raeth: "Don’t we just need to prove to the port that the ship is fit to fly?"
    Mathus: "Let’s find Vorn first."
    • Mathus nods.

  • Jaana Raeth begins walking around…

  • Mathus follows.


  • Mathus: (( Is there other rooms he might be
    staying here? Or is he probably on his ship? ))









    Jshock-GM:

    You’ve lived in Mos Shuuta for a
    while… there really isn’t mich in the way of accomodations here.
    He’d either be staying in Teemo’s palace or here.










    Jshock-GM:

    If he’s sane, here.


  • Mathus knocks on the spaceship’s door, then?

  • Jaana Raeth looks over the control panels –
    myabe there’s a com unti which can talk into the ship…









  • Jshock-GM:

    The boarding ramp is deployed. You can
    see it from here. A couple more of those droid guards are standing
    there.










    Jshock-GM:

    Hmm… Jaana, make a Computers check.


  • Mathus decides discretion’s the better part
    of valor here and follows Jaana.









  • Jshock-GM:

    Call it 1d.







    Tygaran:
    makes a Comp check!
    Successes: None / Advantage: 2
    Jshock-GM: OK, you see aseries of icons flashing on one of the control panels… doesn’t mean much to you, though.
    Mathus: (( Can I make one? ))
    Jshock-GM: Go for it – same difficultyt
    Mathus: makes a check!
    Successes: 1 / Advantage: 1
    Jshock-GM: Does mean something to Mathus, though. Whispering…
    You whisper to JeffG: You recognise what’s going on; the tractor beam controls have been locked out from here! You’ll need to access them from the admin building.
    • Jaana Raeth looks over the flashing lights..
      hand poised just off the console









    Jaana Raeth:

    "Uhmmmmm…"


  • Mathus hmms.


  • Mathus whispers: What about
    comm controls into the ship?






    Mathus: "Tractor beam controls have been locked out from here…"
    • Mathus frowns.








    Jshock-GM:

    Sure, you think you can hail them


  • Mathus opens a comm channel to Vorn’s ship,
    then.



  • Jshock-GM: (( so you guys know: <translated>
    ))



    Jshock-GM: (( ach, nevermind. He’s speaking
    Huttese with a trandoshan growl. ))









    Captain Trex:

    "Who dares? I am busy."



    Mathus: (( Hmm, what was the part again? ))


    Jshock-GM: (( Hypermatter Reactor Igniter –
    HMRI for short ))






    Mathus: "Did you need a hypermatter reactor igniter replaced?"
    Lowurra: Raaaawar (We have something you want)
    Captain Trex:
    Captain Trex: "I did… did Vorn send you?"
    Jaana Raeth: "From a certain point of view…"
    Jshock-GM: (( Drekkan, you might not know, but Lowurra definitely would; trandoshans hunt wookiees for sport ))
    Jshock-GM: (( just so you know ))
    Captain Trex: "Interesting…"
    Mathus: "How soon do you want to get off this planet?"
    Captain Trex: "Meet me at my loading ramp."
    Lowurra: (( where’s the ramp? ))
    Jshock-GM: (( north end of the ship ))
    • Lowurra stays slightly out of the way






    Captain Trex:
    • Captain Trex stands an intimitating 2.5 meters
      tall. He’s carrying a blaster on his hip.
    Captain Trex: "Talk."
    Jaana Raeth: "We want off this dustball and are willing to trade the par tyou need for passage."
    Jshock-GM: (( Lowurra, are you actually hiding? ))
    Mathus: "Trade you the part and install it."
    Captain Trex: "Hmm. Why?"
    Lowurra whispers: staying out of the way – to keep out of Trex’s LoS, but hopefully I can see him
    You whisper to Drekkan: kk
    Jaana Raeth: "Does that really matter?"
    Captain Trex:
    • Captain Trex glances at the wookie briefly,
      snarls a bit
    • Lowurra steps forward fingering his Vibroaxe








    Captain Trex:

    "Matters to me…"


  • Jaana Raeth treis to decide if it’s a smart
    thing to tell him the truth or not…






  • Jaana Raeth: makes a Cunning check!
    Successes: 1 / Advantage: 2
    Jshock-GM: you’re going to get to reroll that.
    Jaana Raeth: makes a Cunning reroll? check!
    Successes: 4 / Advantage: 1
    Jshock-GM: You’re trying to bluff him I assume?
    Jaana Raeth: I guess… "We’ve got a time sensitive mission elsewhere, and this dustball is being overly dense about travel arrangements."
    Jshock-GM: call it Deciet opposed by his Discipline (2 diff, 1 Chall)
    Jshock-GM: reroll
    • Jaana Raeth has no ranks in deceipt so…





    Jaana Raeth: makes a decept check!
    Successes: None / Threat: 1
    Jaana Raeth: (( * sigh * ))
    Captain Trex: "Hmmf. Lying."
    Jaana Raeth: (tho it’s still a half truth ={
    Jaana Raeth:
    Jshock-GM: "Could just take it myself…"
    Lowurra: Rrrawr! RRRRRRRUUUUURRR! (Because you can help us and get off this dustball yourself – or I can slowly remove your arms over and over)
    Mathus: (( How hard is it to wreck the HRMI? ))
    Jshock-GM: Init, everyone – Vigilance for everyone but Trex and Lowurra!
    Mathus: makes a check!
    Successes: None / Advantage: 3
    Lowurra: (( shucks… my vigilance is actually better than my cool ))

    Jshock-GM: (( yeah, stopped myself ))
    Jshock-GM: makes a Init for droids check!
    Successes: 1 / Advantage: 1
    Jshock-GM: I see: TAliq, Jaana, Trex, Droids, Mathus Lowurra
    Jshock-GM: Everybody’s at close range. what are you guys planning?
    Mathus: Is there a way I can disable/short out the droids?
    • Jaana Raeth plans to shoot a droid if Trek
      draws on us…



    Lowurra: (( so my plan is to hack up Trek
    something good ))









    Jshock-GM:

    Not really. Invest in an ion gun.



    Lowurra: (( so make of that what we will ))

  • Mathus will let the others go first, then.


  • Jaana Raeth: (( I see ther two droids… Trek is
    up the ramp I suppose but I don’t see his token… ))









    Jshock-GM:

    whoops, invis’d him

    • Mathus is fine with that.

  • Lowurra moves to smash Trek something good

    opposition difficulty? ))

    Jshock-GM: A boost, specifically
    Lowurra: (( sure ))
    Jshock-GM: Who’s next?
    Jaana Raeth: mathus with an antidroid tactic maybe?
    • Mathus ’s only antidroid tactic is punching
      them.


  • Mathus should probably go last-ish.








  • Jshock-GM:

    Taliq? She could cover fire






    Jaana Raeth: ok, then I guss Tal can shoot the trand with that booist
    Mathus: (( What armaments to the droids have? How tough do they look? ))
    Jaana Raeth: that’s 1 diff?

    Jshock-GM: Hmm… I think I’ll do the droids.

    Droid guard 88:

    GM: You catch a glimpse of the tail of an imperial shuttle

    Lowurra: Hurg? (Imperial?)
    Mathus: "…Huh. Wonder what they want here…"
    Jaana Raeth: (( has 3 greens in mechanics… ))

    Jaana Raeth: (( and going by SWTOR – surviving a defeat makes him loose all his jagga points and feel useless… ))

    • Lowurra grins down at Trex’s unconscious form

  • Jaana Raeth meanwhile checks out the cockpit
    and piloting controls…






  • Mathus: "Okay, ship’s good now. We just need to disable the tractor beam… somehow."
    Mathus: "Which means going to the admin center… in the middle of town… and getting it disabled from there."
    • Lowurra strips him and carves a wookie sigil
      into his head









    Jshock-GM:

    Jaana, the passage up to the cockpit
    is lined with various trophies – skulls, etc

    Lowurra: (( I am leaving him stark naked though ))


    Mathus: (( What, no wookie sigil? ))


    Mathus: (( The wookie sigil’s a nice touch. ))








    Jshock-GM:

    woah, this is a family rpg



    Mathus: (( It is? ))


    Lowurra: (( that was my thought – forgot which
    game I was playing ))



    Lowurra: (( so walked it back a bit
    ))









    Jshock-GM:

    PG-13 max









    Jshock-GM:

    Except for the incest. That can slide.



    Mathus: (( Leave him in his briefs, then. shrug
    ))



    Mathus: (( I’m hoping none of us are related. ))





    Mathus: "Which means going to the admin center… in the middle of town… and getting it disabled from there."
    Mathus: "…Any ideas?"
    Lowurra: (( looks at the binders ))
    Jaana Raeth: "Why do you keep suggesting we sabotage it? can’t we just tell them the ship is fully operational now and they’ll drop the barrier?"
    Lowurra: RRRRRR, Rar? (Is there a lockup in the admin center?)
    Jshock-GM: Jaana, Knowledge…
    Jaana Raeth: makes a Knowing something check!
    Successes: None / Advantage: 5
    Jaana Raeth: -.-
    Jshock-GM: wow
    Mathus: makes a check!
    Successes: 2 / Advantage: 1
    Triumph: 1/
    Mathus: (( Knowledge check. ))
    Jshock-GM: Yeah. Tell admin the ship you don’t own is OK to leave. That’ll fly, no problem.
    Jshock-GM: That was sarcasm.
    Mathus: "They’ll ask to speak to the pilot. Or want to check it personally."
    Jaana Raeth: (( we bought it… kinda… ))
    Lowurra: HHHHHUUUUUUR (Well – we could fake that you’re bringing in a runaway slave. Then deactivate it, break out, and flee?)
    Mathus: (( What all does the admin center cover anyway? ))
    Jshock-GM: (( Shyriwook is a subtle language, isn’t it? ))
    Mathus: (( Very. ))
    Mathus: (( Lots of hand gestures. ))
    Lowurra: (( it’s very contextual ))
    Mathus: (( aka would that plan fly? ))
    Jshock-GM: Maybe? Lot of variables there.
    Mathus: (( Knowledge check to refine/hone the idea? ))
    Jshock-GM: Admin governs mostly the spaceports, some of the settlements government.
    Jshock-GM: Yeah, go ahead and diff 1; you’re not nessesarily up on how the town works.
    Mathus: makes a check!
    Successes: 2 / Advantage: 1
    • Mathus ponders.








    Jshock-GM:

    So, yeah – they might take a bounty,
    if one was out







    Mathus: "Not a slave, a bounty. But they’d need to check it first…"
    Mathus: (( Would they allow us in to just check on the local bounties? ))
    Jshock-GM: You probably wouldn’t have to; info kiosks are scattered around. Some of them even work sometimes.
    Mathus: (( So wouldn’t it be easier for us to just walk in and act like bounty hunters that just came in to check something? ))
    • Mathus hmms.





    Mathus: "Maybe we should just act like visiting bounty hunters."
    Lowurra: Hmmmmm (Hmmmmmmm)
    • Jaana Raeth instead ponders where the
      generator for the trac beam might be…






    Jaana Raeth: makes a Streewise? check!
    Successes: None / Advantage: 2
    Jshock-GM: You don’t know
    Jaana Raeth: … lots of adv – no successes
    • Jaana Raeth voices her opinion since she
      doesn’t know






    Jaana Raeth: "Maybe instead of goign into the admin we could just sabotage the generators?"
    • Lowurra tries pondering

  • Mathus ponders. Would he know where the
    generators probably are?






  • Lowurra: makes a Ponder! check!
    Successes: 1 / Advantage: 1
    Jshock-GM: Sure – Go ahead and Mechanics 2 diff, Mathus
    Mathus: makes a check!
    Successes: 3 / Threat: 1
    Lowurra: (( for knowledge on where the gennies were around town ))
    Jshock-GM: OK; you’re pretty sure it’s a main generator bunkered underneath the town somewhere. You’re also pretty sure disabling it would probably take power down to the whole settlement (and might kill some innocents in the process).
    • Mathus shakes his head.





    Mathus: "We’d have to take out the main generator and shut down power to the whole settlement… including the clinic."
    Lowurra: Hruk HUUUUR HUUUR (No. We cannot do such a thing)
    Mathus: "How about we just go in and bribe the proper authorities to shut down the tractor beam?"
    Jaana Raeth: "Then we’d best turn the thing off and blast its controls…"
    • Jaana Raeth heads out of the ship…








    Jshock-GM:

    Alright. You guys OK if I call it here?






    Mathus: Yeah.
    Jaana Raeth: "Perhaps we can get a retina scan and or handprint for confirmation of Trek sellign the ship to us and convince them…"
    Tygaran: sure
    Jshock-GM: You guys have earned some XP. Star Wars is essentially a point buy system, so you’ll have some options for how to spend them. You OK if I just put up the best options for each of you tomorrow?
    Mathus: How many XP will we get?
    Lowurra: sure
    Tygaran: sounds fine to me
    Lowurra: aight, g’night ya’ll
    Jshock-GM: 10xp; it’s enough to upgrade a skill or buy a lesser talent, essentially
    Mathus: K.
    Mathus: What’s Skulduggery cover, BTW?
    Drekkan is disconnected.
    Jshock-GM: picking physical locks, pickpocketing, sleight of hand? etc
    • Tygaran heads out – cya Thurs/Friday or
      Sunday…






    Mathus: Later.
    Tygaran is disconnected.
    Mathus: Heading out myself.
    JeffG is disconnected.
    Jshock-GM: K, cool. catch you later.
