In orbit around Druckenwell, a harsh communication from 2VAC’s associate (and a former student of Doc Teetsba) named Sergei Spokane convinced the crew of the Double Dealer to leave the droid factory planet. The group continued on to Gavos, where their next job awaited them.
Approaching the oridium mine on Gavos, the Double Dealer was greeted only by silence. Exploring the seemingly abandoned mine, they found the bodies of several of the miners, as well as an abandoned Firespray starcraft on an alternate landing pad.
Further exploration of the mine revealed an administrative droid called EV-8D3, fitted with a restraining bolt, who remembered nothing of why the mine was so empty. EV-8D3 led the group to an administrative office where they discovered the credits they needed to bring back to Blotto, as well as security camera footage showing a small cloud car leaving by the main landing pad, and the arrival of a sullustan pilot in the Firespray on the alternate landing pad.
The group encountered the medical droid FX-769, who was not fitted with a restraining bolt, but was similarly silent on the status of the mine. As overhead announcements revealed the destruction of the barrier generators that were keeping the mine safe from Gavos’s dangerous storms, the group decided to split up: 2VAC and Zamda headed out in the Double Dealer to investigate the generators, while Fero and Ja headed to the entrance of the mine.
At the last operational generator, 2VAC and Zamda encountered Lookout, an exploration droid, piloting a cloud car. Though Zamda was able to take remote control of the cloud car’s weapons, Lookout piloted the cloud car directly into the last generator, destroying it.
Below ground, Fero and Ja encountered a group of droids at the entrance to the mine. Scans revealed several life forms deep within the mine, and the supervisor droid 3D-4K explained that the miners had taken refuge there when pirates attacked the mines recently. 3D-4K agreed to send a small PK worker droid in a mine car to bring the miners up.
But with the generators destroyed and the storm moving in, which will certainly destroy the mine, 3D and the other droids (6 B1 battle droids, 2 load lifters, and 1 more PK droid) have headed to the Firespray to escape the doomed mine…
2VAC – 20
Fero – 15
Zamda – 15
Ja – 15
