We decide ta go ta Tatooine ta see if’n any o’ da young Jedi we’re transportin’ wanta get off dere. We end up in da infamous spaceport o’ Mos Eisley. From what I ‘member o’ my Empire ‘istory, dis place is radder infamous. Five o’ da young Jedi decide ta get off ‘ere, ta fin’ deir own way in da rebellion. Visas, Shacktee an’ me deside ta take a little breather in one o’ da local cantinas. When we go in, we order drinks from da ‘tender, I order a traditional Cathar drink “Rrrgushkik” (I haven’ ‘ad one o’ dese in ages, I’m gonna ‘ave ta get da recipe fer dis from ‘im). He gives us each a “free” sample Death Stick an’ I’m da only one ta try it out.
Da Death Stick makes me pretty mellow an’ I spend da night enjoyin’ da light show goin’ on in da Cantina. I’m likin’ dese sticks. I’m gonna ‘ave ta see ‘bout getting’ my own supply o’ des eta take wit’ me.
While we’re in da cantina, we find out dat da planet Dac is under an Empire isolation practice, where dey conduc’ a program o’ genocide. Da One Sith Empire goes ‘bout cuttin’ off da planet from all outsiders an den go ‘bout killin’ off all o’ da natives. Da natives are in bad need o’ medical stuff, along wit transport off o’ da place.
We also find out dat da bounty fer da pirate named “Rav” is still open. We also find out dat ‘is ship is called da “Crimson X.” ‘E’s also known ta target Alliance ships (maybe dese are da sponsors o’ da bounty?).
I over ‘ear Shaakti makin’ some kinda meetin’ wit da tender fer gettin’ a hold o’ some o’ dese Death Sticks fer transport (maybe I can get some fer myself?). I offer ta go wit ‘im tad a meet da nex’ day.
Da nex’ day, we go tad a cantina where we are introduced ta a Demonian, ends up ‘e’s connected ta da Black Sun Syndicate. Shaktee makes a deal ta take a shipment ta Falleen. I get a 1 month supply fer myself an’ I also get a copy o’ da Cathar drink recipe fer our auto chef.
When we get back ta da ship, we discover dat da shipment is already sittin’ dere waitin’ fer us. We leave fer Falleen as soon as we get da stuff loaded.
It is durin’ dis trip dat I discover dat I’m addicted ta da Death Sticks. ‘Paren’ly dese tings are instan’ly addictin’ when taken. I’m gonna ‘ave ta look inta buyin’ somma dese fer da long term, or goin’ inta a rehab facility like one o’ dem nobles…
We arrive in Falleen five Death Sticks later (sixteen to go) & land within da Yellow District at deir space port there. Dis is deir industrial complex & dis is where Xirka Arms is located here too. Me an’ Shacktee meet wit’ ‘is contac’ ‘ere an’ manage ta get da Death Stick chems off an’ get our 8,000 creds.
Just after da transaction is made, we ‘ear a series of ‘splosions occurring across da city scape. Da Falleen, Xirka, stops momentarily to listen to sometin’ & then turns back ta us ta ask us if we want ta make some more money by scarin’ off da ‘tackers. We tell ‘im dat we’re gonna ‘ave ta consider it back in our ship & we ‘ed back ta it. We take off in da ship ta take a look an’ discover dat dere’s an Empirial Destroyer of a new make, tackin’ da planet. Dey’re also broadcastin’ a warnin’ bout why dey’re tackin’ da planet Falleen. ‘Paren’ly some o’ da Falleen ‘ave been conspirin’ wit da Empire in exile & so brought on dis punishmen’. We decide ta scape while da getting’s good an’ ‘ed on ta Bothwai.
Five more Death Sticks, five more Jedi an’ Section 8 leave us ‘ear. I pick up a nice set up of a “slugthrower” ‘quipped wit’ a telescopic scope an’ bipod. Dis oughta come in ‘andy in da future. We also buy some medical supplies ta take ta Dac. I invest 2,000 credits ta da venture, ‘opefully I’ll be able ta make it back an’ den some.
We nex’ stop in Kashyyyk briefly ta jus’ reconoita an’ ‘ed on ta da Hapes Consortium. While in Kashyyyk, we witness da rulin’ o’ da One Sith Empire. Dey’ve jus’ got done bombardin’ da planet fer some reason or nudder.
Hapes Consortium (six Death Sticks more), we leave a nudder four Jedi dere an’ we move on ta Dac.
Dac; ‘ome world ta da Mon Calamari, like Kashyyyk, it’s under a status o’ isolation by da One Sith Empire. We’re able ta sneak in ta da planet’s atmosphere an’ start searchin’ it. We come ‘cross a colossal creature tackin’ a bunch o’ Calamari swimin’ in da water. Dis ting chased da Calamari up out o’ da deeper waters ta da surface ta only ‘lectrocute ‘em an’ I tink “feed” off o’ dem.
I open fire on it an’ my “partners” follow suit. We’re able ta do some ‘arm ta it an’ discourage it in its tacks on da survivin’ Calamari. Durin’ our tacks, it did manage ta do some damage ta our ship. We pick up da survivors dat we can, some o’ de udders swim off. From da ones we picked up we find out dat dey’re former “Rangers” still fightin’ gainst da One Sith. In a stroke o’ financial suicide, Visas donates ‘er ‘alf o’ da medical supplies we’re carryin’. I’m wonderin’ ‘ow she plans on makin’ any kinda profit in dat kinda behavior?
While we’re talkin’ ta dem an’ catchin’ dem up on what’s been ‘appenin’ in da galaxy, dey jus’ ‘appen ta catch on deir own pirate netcast a broadcast o’ an announcement from da One Sith. Darth Krayt ‘as died, murdered by Ashlyn Rae! I can’ ‘elp but wonder how dey got dis ‘nouncemen’ when dey aren’ getting’ any udder news? I jus’ wonder what it means…
