From the desk of Captain E.M. Greyviper, Ret.
Zorbo the Hutt provided instructions for his next mission, a trip to Kessel.
Primary Objective: Retrieve a shipment of glitterstim that had never been delivered.
Secondary objectives: Discover what happened to the original smuggler and his ship, as well as what happened to the first agent sent to investigate the disappearance.
Utilizing bribery, my extensive familiarity with Imperial naval etiquette, and Saffron’s seductive skills we managed to secure landing and soon acquire some computer files from Kessel’s systems. Vera Tam was able to decode and discover the location of the missing ship, however it was on the other side of Kessel. Dressed in my finest uniform and armed with a bottle of , my natural leadership qualities were more than enough to meet with our gracious Imperial hosts to secure a hovercar and passage through the mines.
Situated within Kessel, Along the way, we stopped to investigate the mining operation. Wookies abounded, utilizing their strong arms and backs for something more productive than climbing trees. Following up on a lead to investigate the location of Zorbo’s people, we made our way into the mines. Before entering the mines proper, we made a brief side excursion to a supply depot, wherein Vera hastily murdered the clerk in her typical reckless fashion. With the clerk’s body stuffed in a locker, we equipped ourselves and Vera first met her first love, Charisma the flame thrower. We marched into the mines, confident in our abilities. We almost immediately found ourselves embroiled in a particularly harrowing encounter with the local vermin, oversized arachnids, where my companions were nearly killed. I was able to strategically relocate in an effort to continue the mission. Fortunately, they survived, we reunited and pressed on.
Sure enough, smack in the middle of the mine tunnels, we found a small rebel outpost. After they attacked us mercilessly when we attempted to parley with them, they found our vengeance swift and terrible.
With some additional information collected from the rebel computers, we made our way to the glitterstim refinery, where we discovered that the refinery was grossly behind schedule, due to a mix of sabotage and incompetence. Utilizing my organizational prowess, I took command of the refinery and got things running on schedule while the rest of the group secured Zorbo’s ship.
After a few weeks, we had a hold packed with glitterstim and were ready to leave. I managed to convince the refinery’s overseer to join me for a drink in Zorbo’s ship, whereupon we seized him. We left Kessel and returned to Zorbo, delivering the glitterstim, the ship and the refinery overseer “responsible” for the delays in his shipment.
