Edge of the Empire

Beyond the Rim: Episode I
The Tale of the Sa Nalaor

Running out of credits, the crew of the Twilight drifts through space looking for their next job. The ship’s pilot, Krallet, receives a holo message from an associate of his that loaned him the credits to buy the ship they’re in. In the message Reom says that he has a way for them to make some money and possibly pay off some of the debt owed on Krallet’s ship. Krallet recently botched a smuggling job for Reom though so he’s not too eager tobe around him. Oola, Serious and Vella are eager to make some credits though and convince Krallet to make the hyperspace jump to the Wheel to meet up with Reom.

Once our party is on the Wheel they meet up with Reom in the IsoTech office. He tells them that he received a hyperspace message pod that was intended for his deceased father, Ropok. The message pod is a distress call from the Sa Nalaor, a separatist ship that was lost at the end of the Clone Wars. It’s rumored that the ship held vast amounts of treasure, but Reom is most interested in the possibility that the ship was carrying advanced cybernetics technology.

The party and Reom come to an agreement that they will search for the ship on Cholganna based off the location information contained in the message pod. A droid called Eyetee-Three is to accompany them. The droid once belonged to Ropok and was familiar with Captain Rel Harsol of the Sa Naloar – if there are any survivors, Eyetee-Three will be able to vouch for the group as being with IsoTech. The droid will be delivered in eight hours and then the party is to depart.

Time is passed by shopping for supplies, gathering information in cantinas and a little gambling. As time goes on it becomes apparent that word of renewed interest in the Sa Nalaor is spreading. While in the hangar, Serious discovers a repair droid attempting to fix a homing beacon to their ship. It runs off but drops the beacon. Serious tries to find anything about the beacon that he can but isn’t able to determine its origin.

The crew receives the call they’ve been waiting for. Shira informs them that Eyetee-Three will be arriving in five minutes. Fifteen minutes go by and the droid still hasn’t arrived. They try to reach Reom on the com and get no response. Fearing something has gone wrong, Vella, Krallet and Oola head to the IsoTech office. They find it’s been ransacked with even the secretary droid trashed. They begin to drag the droid back to the ship hoping that Serious can retrieve data on what happened in the offices. As they turn the corner into the main corridor leading to the hangar bays they run into a problem – a droid matching the description of Eyetee-Three is strapped to a gravsled being escorted by five armed Rodians…

Beyond the Rim: Episode I - Part II
The Tale of the Sa Nalaor

Krallet, Vella and Oola Rha drop the damaged CZ series droid they are carrying when they see Eyetee-Three being abducted by the five Rodians. The droidnappers, led by a Rodian with a cybernetic eye, notice the party and wave their blasters at them as they push their wave through the crowded corridor. A firefight breaks out and Oola manages to blast the Rodian driving the gravsled who slumps forward into the controls causing the gravsled to take off out of control down the corridor.

Vella gives chase as the crowd starts running wildly for cover, caught between the Rodians and our heroes exchanging blaster fire. Krallet makes a beeline for their ship to prep it for what is probably going to be a quick take off. Serious sticks with the ship until Krallet gets there, then he heads out of the hangar to help with recovering Eyetee-Three.

While trying to jump into the drivers seat of the gravsled, the lead Rodian accidentally knocks the steering controls and sends it careening into the wall. Vella is closing on him quickly as Oola lays down fire taking out the other two Rodian thugs. Once Serious gets into the corridor he notices that CZ-13 has been abandoned in the hallway. He’s unable to just leave the droid as scrap and runs to her to see if he can recover her. She’s just too heavy for him though so he settles with using his amazing skills to remove her memory to access later.

It’s about this time that Wheel security shouts for everyone to cease fire and stay where they are. Rather than try to talk their way out of this one, the group runs for the hangar bay doors. Serious tries overriding the doors controls as Oola yells for Vella to get EyeTee-Three into the hangar. Just as Wheel security draws close enough to fire their blasters, Vella and Eyetee-Three make it through the hangar door as it slides shut and Serious enables the computer locks on it.

They rush to get into the Twilight and Krallet takes off just as the hangar doors start to close. As they race away from the wheel they notice a YT-2400 being chased by two Z-95 Headhunters. It looks like they’re not quite out of trouble yet. It’ll take them a couple minutes to get clear of the heavy space traffic around the Wheel to be able to make a jump to hyperspace and two headhunters just showed up on their sensors chasing them. The Headhunters fire warning shots and order them to turn around. Oola and Vella take up the guns as Krallet maneuvers and tries to lose them. A few well placed shots from the Twilight’s turrets make quick work of the Headhunters though, leaving nothing but scrap behind as the stars fade into their periphery and hyperspace fills their view.
