At the oridium mine on Gavos, the intentions of the droids became clear: they wanted to take the firespray and escape, and they tried to entice 2VAC to join them.
A fight broke out at the bunker, and though Ja was more than a match for the decrepit battle droids, he was nearly felled by a load lifter droid under the command of 3D-4K.
Gand awoke from a long daze to discover Mulva was no longer on board the ship. Hailing the firespray, the group discovered Mulva had boarded it — bypassing Zamda’s security measures — but she was unable to start the ship and plot a course by herself. The group helped her get on her way, after much hesitation, self-doubt, and perhaps against the more immediate desires of Gand. With Mulva and the firespray gone, the Double Dealer fired its lasers at the insurrectionist droids, destroying nearly all of them. With 3D destroyed, the load lifters simply awaited new orders as Fero and Ja escaped, taking the administrative droid EV-8D3 on board the Double Dealer with them. With the crew back on board, the Double Dealer escaped the storm on Gavos just the mine’s bunker collapsed in on itself — killing the miners still in the moon’s depths.
The crew returned to Blotto and gave him the 100,000 credits he had asked for, minus their own payment. Blotto was unconcerned with the mine’s destruction, and the group’s Black Sun contact, Surana Rho, congratulated them on a job well done. Gand determined Mulva’s trajectory as taking her to Nar Shadda, but her current whereabouts are unknown. Rumor has it she has renamed her new ship MULVA’S PAIN.
Zamda received a message from an ithorian informant claiming he had information that could lead to Zamda’s exoneration from his supposed crimes. The ithorian wishes to meet Zamda on the junk planet of Raxus Prime.
Next, the crew Double Dealer accepted the same job from no less than three different employers: Black Sun, their former employer Sude Raalo, and 2VAC’s SGI contact Sergei Spokane. The job was to find the long-lost Clone Wars-era ship the SA NALAOR.
Sude believes his father was on board the ship when it was lost, but he’s also interested in whatever treasure or technology may have been aboard. Fero agreed to split the proceeds with Sude 50/50.
Surana Rho of the Black Sun also contracted the group to find the ship and bring back whatever cargo was aboard. The group agreed to split the proceeds with the Black Sun 50/50.
Sergei Spokane of SGI is actually in possession of the message pod which revealed the Na Salaor’s probable crash site as the planet Cholganna, on the very edge of the Outer Rim. He has offered the group 10,000 credits if they find and confirm the ship’s location, and an additional 10,000 credits for any treasure or cybernetics technology they find on board. He wishes to send his father’s protocol droid with them, IT-3P0, who is still en route to the Wheel, and who is due to arrive in a few hours. After the group goes to Cholganna and locates the ship, Sergei wants to meet them on Raxus Prime at a facility called IsoTech.
Waiting for the droid’s arrival, the group split up and attended to their private concerns. Ja bought drugs, and Zamda hacked into Sergei’s private database to discover the name of Sergei’s Imperial contact, who Sergei had been informing regarding the Double Dealer’s movements: an ISB agent named CAL ALSEN.
- net … 75,000 credits? I don’t remember, but I think you guys have kept track of it.
Sude’s message to Fero:
My dear boy Fero,
I know we have had our differences lately. I regret the manner in which we last spoke. I trust you have not forgotten that, despite any animosity you may feel toward me, you still owe a considerable debt to me, separate from the job you failed to complete on Coachelle.
Fortunately, there is a way for you to make amends. I have recently learned that my father, who has been missing since the days of the Clone Wars, may have been found. A message pod was recently discovered floating in space with the possible location of the SA NALAOR, a Separatist ship not seen since the days of the Old Republic. The pod has been recovered and taken to the Wheel, a space station in the Besh Gorgon system. Go there, find the pod, and locate my father. Of course, if you recover any old technology or valuables on the ship I will be willing to split the proceeds with you 50/50. After the payment of your debt, of course.
Due to unforseen circumstances, I have been forced to leave my place of business on Geonosis. Contact me via holonet with your answer regarding this matter.
The ithorian informant’s message to Zamda:
I’ve got some information that can help you clear your name. I can’t transmit it via the holonet. Meet me at the junk world, Raxus Prime. It’s crawling with Imperials — how you get down here is up to you. Be careful. Don’t contact me unless it’s in person.
