Avvy's Adventure on the Edge of the Empire

Family Ties
Life and Death on Nar Shaddaa

From the desk of Captain E.M. Greyviper, Ret.

Mission 3.1:
Zorbo was quite pleased with the return of his glitterstim, but he had grim and pressing business. One of his relatives on Nar Shaddaa had been killed and he wanted us to investigate. As unpleasant as that sounded, we were quite happy for an excuse to make haste from Tatooine, the sandy crotch of the galaxy.

Upon arriving on the swamp moon of Nal Hutta, we quickly discovered that witnesses and leads would not be forthcoming. A Mandalorian mercenary had reportedly been silencing anyone attempting to follow up on the assassination. It was not long before we began to find ourselves under attack from this shadowy figure. After the second time she shot my cap from my head and failed to kill Ensign Beller despite my cunning ploy to use him as bait, I correctly surmised that she was operating by a particular code and was not going to kill us.

We pressed on and soon discovered, from the information about Jogo the Hutt’s affairs as well as the activities of his competitors following his death, that nobody had gained any sort of decisive advantage from his extermination. With this, we tentatively ruled out any competing Hutts or the Black Sun criminal syndicate as parties responsible. I managed to contact Imperial intelligence sources and, despite not being much help generally, they were able to confirm for me that they were not responsible.

With parsecs to spare
To Kessel!
From the desk of Captain E.M. Greyviper, Ret.

Mission 2.1:
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.

Mission 2.2:
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.

MIssion 2.3:
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.

It Begins!
Wherein we bamboozle Imperials and slaughter Rebels

For their own particular reasons, Cpt. Grayviper, the Tam sisters and a wookie bounty hunter had come into the employ of Zorbo the Hutt as a way to pay off their various debts to him.

Mission #1.1:
The group was assigned to retrieve some Imperial-issue surveillance gear. The surveillance gear was held on an Imperial space station and the group managed to retrieve it by impersonating Imperial officers on a supply run.

Mission #1.2:
The newly acquired surveillance gear was delivered to another planet to trade it for smuggled weaponry. As it happened, the trading party was overtaken by an arm of the Rebellion. They attempted to take the equipment by force and keep the guns. A pitched battle ensued, with the Imperials arriving at the last minute, intent on arresting everyone involved. The group managed to kill the surviving merchant and then Captain Greyviper spun a tale of rebel deceit, that those were his guns and he had brought them to trade, but when he discovered the surveillance goods were stolen property, he opened fire like a good Imperial citizen. With the storm troopers mollified, Grevyiper and his crew took “their” shipment back and left the troopers to clean up a mountain of rebel bodies.

Mission #1.3:
With a pile of weapons in hand, the group returned to Tatooine and was swiftly tasked with drumming up business on the planet for them. To do so, the group stoked the ire of the local sand people and drummed up fear in the local populace. All of this was done, surprisingly, without following through with Greyviper’s plan of kidnapping a few children, then saying the sand people did it.
