Magnus Hyperion, Jr. Lieutenant Daskar’Jin, Sssco, Tash Blackburn, Hope, Thane Starkiller, Princess Zora, Dia Ven, Owen, So Leet, Trandomar, and Sparlo arrived at an uncharted location in the Senex Juvex sector of space, Princess Zora having requested the Empire lend her some aid.
After getting cleared for docking at an unnamed space station, which looked to be on its last legs, having half of a star destroyer as part of its structure, the party disembarked, posing more than half of them as slaves.
Quickly accosted by shady merchants in what seemed to be a black market styled merchant den, they were asked to sell their slaves by a number of interested parties. Magnus, posing as a slave, was mistaken for his younger brother Roland by a scruffy looking scrawny man, but was chased away by Tash with a blaster before any questions could be answered, making one wonder just what he wanted and why he thought Magnus was Roland.
Denying the peasley amount of 3,000 credits for the Twi’lek slave Dia’Ven, So Leet letting the party know that such an amount was entirely too low for a Twi’lek slave, even in this part of the galaxy, the party (or some of them!) decided it would be a good idea to sell the other party members off as slaves, thus locating at least one of the locations where slaves were being kept on the station.
Accepting the offer of 35,000 credits for the lot of them from a Ssi-ruuk, the party headed to a higher level of the station. The party was sold as slaves to the Ssi-ruuk, and placed in binders and led off into the Ssi-ruuk base. The so-called slaves were marched deep inside, passing by numerous screams of pain, and a large amount of oddly modified droids. It was discovered by Sparlo that in fact, these Ssi-ruuk were somehow taking the lives of the slaves and placing them into droids.
The other party members decided that perhaps it was a mistake to break up their team and leave most of them without weapons and imprisoned, immediately began to find a secret way into the Ssi-ruuk base, though Sparlo used his Fold Space ability to simply leave the cell.
So Leet, having scouted out a few different ways into the base, lead the party to one of the better paths, and they are now preparing to invade to rescue the people they sold into slavery themselves…
Meanwhile, Owen, having left the group with the explanation of checking things out, probed out with his Sense ability, finding a dark spot in the force, indicating the presence of a Ysalamari. He briefly detected another force user, but the sense of him disappeared quickly. Attempting to get to other levels of the station, Owen has fallen down a garbage chute, landing upon a large pile of decaying body parts, rubble, droid pieces, and other such junk, only to find himself in a forest area. Far above him, the ceiling shown with warm lights, acting as an artificial sun for all of the plant life.
Quote of the game: “It’s just a raptor with a shotgun.” Referring too a Ssi-ruuk. Nice one Sparlo. _
