Masks of Adas

Episode VI, session three
A shitshow commences

The Dealers converge on elevator theta-six, seemingly guarded by a smattering of Imperial stormtroopers. A closer look revealed that these stormtroopers, too, were rebels in disguise — led by Zamda’s uncle, Trida Trist. Trida and his bothan allies set the Dealers on a task — there was a droid lost on the surface holding plans for Imperial patrols and bases in the Outer Rim, and they need it retrieved.

The homing beacon for the droid leads them right back to the tarentatek cave they’d just recently escaped…

The Dealers manage to talk the bothans into handing over a light repeating blaster rifle, 2 thermal detonators, and a flamer.

(My notes here actually say “shitshow commences”)

The Dealers lure the tarantatek out of its cave and attack. Though the thermal detonators do some damage, the beast’s thick hide is too tough for most of their weapons. Zamda manages to sneak past it and into the cave, finding the lost droid while the Dealers distract the tarantatek — which nearly takes out both Orion and Typhh in the process.

Zamda escapes the cave with the head of the droid as the tarantatek attempts to return to its cave. Typhh — who had regained the Scepter of Ragnos — plunges the scepter into the beast’s leg, purposely ridding gandself of the dark side artifact.

The Dealers flee from the cave, the droid head in their possession…

"Let's Go Get Lost in the Jungle"

Aboard the Star Destroyer REVENGE and awaiting the arrival of the JAGGED FANG (the ship formerly known as the Double Dealer), the Dealers are taken by surprise when the Revenge makes a sudden hyperspace jump to Wookiee Planet C. The Revenge joins the fight against a small fleet of rebels trying to punch through the Imperial blockade to the slave planet.

The Dealers, avoid being forced into joining one of the many scrambling stormtrooper squads and make their way to a bank of escape pods. Zamda fires all the escape pods he can, and the Dealers blast through the dogfight and down to the surface of the forest planet below.

Blasting their escape pod’s homing signal, the Dealers head off into the jungle. Though Orion is familiar with Imperial outpost placement regulations, Typhh convinces the Dealers that he knows the best way to escape the planet’s deadly surface. Unfortunately for the Dealers, Typhh is listening to the whispers of Marka Ragnos — and (after a scuffle with some kinrath) he leads his friends to the lair of a legendary Terentatek.

The Dealers opt to run from the terentatek’s lair, and Typhh attempts to plunge the Scepter of Ragnos into the beast’s maw. The scepter becomes lodged in the monster’s mouth, the terentatek retreats back into its cave, and the dark whispers in Typhh’s head grow quiet for the first time in weeks…

Stimpacks & Stun Grenades

A few weeks have passed since the deaths of Surana and Cratala and the beginning of the Imperial crackdown on Coachelle.

Zamda has finally decrypted the datapads he took from the Dealers’ one-time allies. Surana’s revealed the power structure of the Black Sun on Coachelle, including the name of the next-in-command: an Ithorian named Oonce. Cratala’s revealed certain cybernetic plans, but also that she needed Doc’s more up-to-date research to move forward with new technologies. With Zamda wanted for suspicious activity in the aftermath of Cratala and Surana’s murders, Zamda effectively disguises himself so that he can more easily travel around Coachelle.

The Dealers heard rumors of MAS AMEEDA’s presence on Coachelle. Ameeda is a personal aide to the Emperor himself, and he is thought to be searching for Typhh.

A gonk droid is delivered to the Crust Bunny, with a hologram-message from Nom Kussar: go see Oonce and take on a mission from him, to rescue FELINI DE BAAL, a rebel agent imprisoned on the Star Destroyer Revenge. Oonce wants the Dealers to rescue Felini, but Nom Kussar wants the Dealers to kill him.

Meeting with Oonce, the Dealers are given security outfits and a way onto the Star Destroyer: they will accompany BEDWIN, a lepi who provides the Imperials with clean laundry. In secret, the Dealers agree to free Felini and exact vengeance on MOFF PARS OSNAN, the commander of the Revenge and the man responsible for the deaths of Fero’s parents. They also liberate flasks of cooking grease from their kepi allies at the Crust Bunny, smuggling them (and the Scepter of Marka Ragnos) aboard Bedwin’s cargo craft.

Aboard the Revenge, the Dealers incapacitate a half-squadron of Stormtroopers using the cooking grease and stun grenades. They steal the stormtroopers’ armor, and send the unconscious troopers back to Coachelle hidden aboard Bedwin’s ship, taking their place on the Revenge. Typhh recovers his scepter and they successfully submit a work order to transfer Felini to another part of the ship. They pick him up from the Revenge’s detention block and take him to the Moff’s personal conference room, near the bridge. There, they explain to Felini that they’re there to rescue him.

Zamda looks up info of himself, discovering that he’s been tagged as a potential double-agent for the Empire. They wish to arrest Zamda and use him to infiltrate anti-Imperial groups. He also turns up the name of FIZZ ROLO — a Bothan spinet agent who was responsible for turning the Empire’s attention onto the Cargo Argo years ago.

The Jagged Fang — the ship formerly known as the Double Dealer — is due to dock with the Revenge within the hour…

Episode VI: The Dark Times, opening crawl

IMPERIAL CRACKDOWN!

In the wake of Surana’s death, a power struggle erupts on Coachelle. Rebels try to take control of the Kibbler, and in the subsequent battle it is destroyed. The Rebel Alliance loses a valuable source of smuggled weapons and the Empire’s grip on Coachelle tightens.

DONGO CALRISSIAN returns from exile and is named Coachelle’s planetary governor. The skies are ruled by his lieutenant, KRRSK KITRAN, from a mobile command center — a familiar YT-1300 freighter recently renamed the JAGGED FANG. From orbit, MOFF PARS OSSNAN watches over Coachelle and orchestrates a cruel reign of terror, bringing the planetwide-city under Imperial control one piece at a time.

Meanwhile, a small resistance is forming around a group of lepi freegans living in a flophouse called the CRUST BUNNY….

Episode V, session seven/eight: Eclipse

The crew of the Double Dealer leaves the cantina where they met Nom Kussar, and after some time to heal and resupply, they head to Coachelle. They part ways with Kieran Prin, who finally finds the long-missing mechanic he was searching for — Flix Tyro, a specialist in Rakatan technology.

The group splits up — Fero & Typhh seek out Krrsk Kitran, who’s working as a bouncer at a club called THUMPER. He gives them a security code to help clear out Black Sun/Zorka Security thugs from Boomer’s Garage, where they have arranged to meet Cratala. Zamda & Johnny dummy up some crates to resemble the research they’ve promised to sell to Cratala — unaware there’s a stowaway inside.

The crew convenes at the now-abandoned Boomer’s Garage. Zamda rigs an automated signal to go off in 2 minutes that will divert Black Sun mercs to the Kibbler.

Cratala and Surana are both in attendance — they plan to honor the deal. Without a real plan, chaos erupts when the Dealers back out of the room and Fero tosses in a grenade and shuts the door.

Battle ensues! Zamda manages to shut down the antique battle droids, and the Black Sun thugs are killed when Johnny shoots the grenade on one of their hips, and Fero shoots a missile that had just missed Typhh.

An IG-86 sentinel droid squares off with the Dealers and does some damage, but Typhh strikes it with the Staff of Marka Ragnos, cracking the staff and giving it a MINOR DAMAGED rating (adding +1 setback die to all rolls with the staff), but also knocking out the droid’s last missile. Fero then shoots the missile, destroying the droid.

A mysterious stranger bursts from the crate — it’s Orion, a Selonian wanted by the Hutts. Orion traded all of his credits to Woorbly, the sic-six infochant, looking for a safe place. Woorbly directed him to the Dealers. Orion blasts Cratala with a stun rifle, nearly dispatching her with a single shot.

Cratala tries to escape — but Typhh strikes a killing a blow to her with the Staff, though the staff’s true power remains unknown. Zamda kills Surana, and the Dealers have completed their mission.

They manage to divert further Black Sun involvement for a time, but before they beat a hasty retreat from Boomer’s Garage they learn where the security camera footage of their battle was downloaded: a lepi cantina called MASH. They cruise past, but Zamda gets an alert that someone is attempting to break into the Double Dealer itself. Heading to the landing pad, they find a squad of Imperial Stormtroopers and an Imperial agent hacking into their security system. Already hurting from their fight with Cratala and Surana, the Dealers retreat. Soon afterward, Zamda gets another alert: the Imperials gained access to their ship.

They return to Mash and are denied entry at the door. Heading around back, they meet Prix, a dumpster-diving, cooking-oil-collecting freegan. They snap the lock Prix is fumbling with, and in return he gives them access to the back door of Mash, where he’d recently been employed.

Inside, Typhh uses the Force to apply a chloroform-soaked rag to the guard outside of the door to the more exclusive downstairs club called AFTERMASH. Downstairs, Fero distracts some Aqualish thugs while Zamda gains access to a computer system and erases the camera footage from their fight with Cratala and Surana — and also downloads the Coachelle Black Suns’ information on the Double Dealers. Information in hand, Zamda kills the computer jockey working for Black Sun.

Johnny, meanwhile, engages in an organic ritual of narcotics-trading, using his hydraulic phalange attachment.

Back outside in they alley, the crew of the Double Dealer find themselves at the end of a successful mission, but missing their ship. They agree to convene at Prix’s flophouse, the CRUST BUNNY, to rest, heal, and make a plan for the future…

Episode V, session six: Vengeance

Typhh is dead. Long live Typhh!

The Dealers search the body of the former Typhh Rx’lbg, collecting the Scepter of Ragnos, an ancient Sith artifact of considerable evil. They also discover a pyramidal Sith holocron, some very ancient books, and the former Typhh’s outfit, which the new Typhh promptly puts on.

Leaving the tomb of Marka Ragnos, the Dealers find a squad of Imperial stormtroopers waiting for them. One of the stormtroopers speaks into a commlink (“Here they come now, sir,”), and the Dealers open fire. The stormtroopers return fire, blasting Fero into unconsciousness yet again.

The Dealers fall back into the tomb, searching for another way out. They find an old tomb robber’s tunnel, exiting the tomb from the back. They opt to walk back to Zanntown, leaving their swoop bikes behind. Marching through the deserts and canyons of Korriban, with TIE patrols overhead, they’re unsure if they’re on the right track when a shuttle from Zanntown skirts overhead and lands, offering to take them back to their ship. Zanntown demands a hefty landing fee, but they try to do right by those who pay it.

The Double Dealer blows a gasket blasting past the TIEs and the Star Destroyers around Korriban, but after a few days of hyperspace travel they find themselves back at Nar Shaddaa. They learn of Gorp Molo‘s fate from Nom Kussar, who tells them Gorp was ashamed after being duped out of the Inkspray. He met up with rebel agents, who recruited him as a pilot. Seeking to prove himself worthy of the Dealers once again, Gorp went off to fight the Empire. The last Nom heard of him, he was on Derra IV. Nom knows Ja was in pursuit of Gorp, but Ja’s location remains unknown. With his lightsaber returned to him (against the wishes of Typhh), Nom was surprised to find that the lightsaber’s color had been changed by the former Typhh.

Nom Kussar revealed further information to the Dealers, the offer of new employment: Surana Rho and Cratala were behind the attempted kidnapping of Doc Teetsba, which had resulted in Doc’s death. They were planning to use the Black Sun’s resources, along with Cratala (and Doc’s) knowledge of droids and cybernetics, to overthrow the Emperor, place themselves in positions of power within Black Sun, and thereby rule the galaxy from behind the throne of whoever took the Emperor’s place. Nom Kussar believes this plan to be folly — the better course of action would be to continue to support both the rebels and the Empire, prolonging the current Galactic Civil War, and ensuring that the Black Sun continues to profit from the ongoing battle.

In exchange for a year’s employment, he tasked the Dealers with arranging a meeting with Surana and Cratala, and then killing them both. The Dealers agreed — Fero, in particular, sought revenge for the death of Doc Teetsba. Before parting ways, Kieran sold the sith holocron found in Marka Ragnos’s tomb for 8,000 credits. Typhh opposed this, but Nom promised that if, after the completion of their mission to kill Surana and Cratala, he still wanted the holocron, Nom would turn it over.

Finally, the Dealers returned to the impound lot where they Inkspray waited for them. Hearing it would take several days (and several hundred credits) to get it out of the lot, they instead made an offer to Belop, the Sullustan working the desk: he could take the Inkspray himself, and the title of Gorp Two, and pursue his own delivery runs as an agent of the Dealers. Belop agreed.

On a path of vengeance, with an ancient Sith artifact in their possession, the crew of the Double Dealer hurtles toward the conclusion of Episode V: Full-Tilt Eclipse. WHO will survive? WHAT will be the cost? FIND OUT IN ONE WEEK.

Episode V, session five: Shadow

The Dealers penetrate the tomb of the Sith lord, Marka Ragnos. Fero, fumbling in the dark, awakens a number of living corpses. At least two of them grope and grind against Fero as he tries to stumble away, but the corpses are dispatched by shots to the head.

After scaling a wall into a larger chamber, the Dealers follow Typhh’s trail. Entering a small, cramped, and darkened room, they are attacked by Typhh Rx’lbg himself, accompanied by his droid T-B0L.

Fero is nearly felled by a missile blast, but the Dealers rally and Gand knocks the red lightsaber from Typhh’s hands. Zamda retrieves it — Fero attempts to soothe Gand with a juice-bulb, but Gand has already succumbed to the temptations of the ghostly voice of Marka Ragnos. He pledges to not just destroy Typhh — but to become Typhh.

Disarmed and nearly dead, Typhh pleads — “Wait! I was wrong - I was -

But Gand fires his blaster, through Typhh’s breathing apparatus, killing him…

Episode V, session four: Traces

The Dealers leave Boz Pity with the rebels they’ve rescued from the former rebel base there. They transport the rebels to Saleucami, where the rebels hope to rendezvous with friends. Captain Deez thanks the Dealers and tells them to get in touch if they ever want to join the fight.

A few harrowing jumps take the Double Dealer to" Iego, the Planet of a Thousand Moons.
“:http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Iego. Their search for information leads them to The Web, a dilapidated ship in orbit around the planet, and inhabited by Woorbly, a sic-six infochant. Woorbly reveals three pieces of information: Typhh passed through The Web on his way to Korriban, a planet strong in the Dark Side of the Force; Typhh stole a lightsaber from ”/characters/nom-kussar" class=“wiki-content-link”>Nom Kussar on Nar Shaddaa; and the Dealers are on an unflattering list of mercenaries only fit for suicide missions. Owing Woorbly a favor, the Dealers depart.

Arriving at Korriban after another series of bumpy jumps, the Double Dealer evades a Star Destroyer and is only barely missed when two pursuing TIE fighters collide with each other. They land at a shadowport being run by the Zann Consortium, a criminal organization operating under the very nose of the Empire. Zann’s purpose on Korriban remained unclear, but the Double Dealer was docked right next to Typhh Rx’lbg’s own ship, a Z-95 Headhunter called the Cloudy Eye.

They were given the coordinates to the tomb of Marka Ragnos, known to Kieran as an ancient Sith Lord, and supposedly Typhh’s destination in the Valley of the Dark Lords on Korriban. The Dealers pursued on two swoop bikes, and soon gained entrance to the tomb itself.

A ghostly voice called out for all to hear, saying, “You can once again be Honz Glur’boid … strike down your friends and my power will be yours! The Sith of old will rise again through you!” Gand reached out with the Dark Side of the Force, sesning a single living being deep within the tomb … and several other creatures that were neither living nor dead….

Episode V, session three: Masks

The Dealers head back to their ship on Nar Shaddaa, intending to travel to Boz Pity to track down Typhh Rx’lbg. Before they can reach their ship, they’re confronted by a group of thugs and assassins who have mistaken Gand for Typhh, and who demand the “location of the thing.”

It’s a tough fight — both Gand and Kieran are nearly taken out — but the Dealers rally and defeat their foes. One of the Defel assassins managed to escape, and the Dealers left Nar Shaddaa for Boz Pity.

Arriving in orbit around Boz Pity, still a little worse for wear from their fight on Nar Shaddaa, the Dealers found themselves unexpectedly in the middle of a firefight between the Empire and the Rebel Alliance. Fero’s piloting helps them avoid an Imperial tractor beam, and in the confusion they stealthily land their ship on the memorial planet below. Lying low for several hours, they can only watch as Rebel ships try to escape from a previously secret base.

Using their laminate armor and some fast-talking, the Dealers disguise themselves as stormtroopers in order to infiltrate the now-occupied Rebel base. Zamda patches into the Rebel’s computer system and discovers that Typhh’s next destination is Iego, the Planet of a Thousand Moons — but also that there was a small group of rebel prisoners still on Boz Pity, awaiting transfer to a star destroyer in orbit.

The Dealers easily continue their charade, rescuing the captured rebels from the Empire. During the “prisoner transfer,” the Dealers are told that Pars Ossnan has recently been promoted by Darth Vader himself, and that both intend to personally interrogate these prisoners, intending to discover the locations of other rebel bases.

Back on the Double Dealer, the rebels are relieved to discover they’ve been rescued. They inform the Dealers that they need to reach the rendezvous point on Derra IV, the other side of the galaxy from Typhh’s next stop…

Episode V, session two: Fog

Aboard Iso-One, the Dealers meet Kieran, a Chiss student of archaeology, who is looking for Flix Tryo, one of the survivors of the SA NALAOR the Dealers dropped off on Cholganna. They offer to give Kieran a lift to Nar Shaddaa, where they’re headed to search for Ja, Gorp, and the Inkspray.

Before leaving the IsoTech fleet, the Dealers discover the Last Will & Testament of Doc Teetsba…

Dear Dealers,

If you are watching this, I am unexpectedly dead. I hope that my mortal remains were incinerated in the fiery blast of a droid-related explosion, but perhaps that’s wishful thinking? More likely than that, I wound up somewhere cold. Probably running from something. You all probably found my journals or something, and you’ve realized I was an even bigger creep than you thought. If that’s the case, I’m sorry for all of the things that you know, and all of the things that you don’t know.

Anyway. As far as my material possessions go, I leave everything to 2VAC. My prediction is that you might not go by that name for much longer, but as of this recording, that’s how I know you. And whatever I have left, it belongs to you.

But there’s a condition. And it applies to all of you. If I have any remains left, spread them in the clouds of cirrifog of Monor II.

Sifu mungu, my friends. And may the Force be with you.

En route to Nar Shaddaa, with Kieran at the helm, the Dealers spread Doc’s ashes in the cirrifog of Monor II.

Upon arrival at the smugglers’ moon, the crew lost the signal from the Inkspray. But after asking around, they tracked down the ship to an impound lot where it had been taken by Hutt authorities after it was abandoned at an orbital docking tower. They pay a hefty fee to release the ship, but it will take several days for it to be turned over to them.

After finding the actual ship, the tracking beacon flared back to life — leading the crew to a seedy cantina called the Headache Bar. Gand and Kieran went inside to investigate, and found a shady, scruffy human named NOM KUSSAR. Nom employed the group to locate Typhh Rx’lbg — and, more specifically, the mystery items he believes Typhh has stolen from him. In return, Nom claims to know the location of Gorp.

Looking for Typhh took the Dealers to two ammonia bars, but several social miscues and faux pas kept them from discovering any information on Typhh’s location. But Zamda was able to access Nar Shaddaa’s flight records, revealing that Typhh’s ship, THE CLOUDY EYE, left Nar Shaddaa en route for BOZ PITY, a graveyard world, several days before…
