Personal Journal Entry 4 & 5
Visas? (I guess dat’s ‘er name, she been sure takin’ a lot o’ time an’ effort ta splain it ta me). Tells me dat we’re ‘eddin’ out ta some planet called Dantooing (strange name). Anyway, while in ‘iperspace, I took da time ta do some much needed maintenance on my weapons & quipmen’. One day I walked inta da bridge an’ see “Visas” talkin’ ta a ‘olo transmission (I thought it was impossible ta make or ‘ceive calls in lightspeed). Anyway, while Shack Tee was starin’ at da girl makin’ ‘er call, the caller turned ta look at us! Ends up it wasn’t a ‘olo transmission, but a ‘olo crom & a jedi one at dat! Rrrr…
Well I guess dis ‘ere ‘olo crom is ‘live or sometim’ like dat. ‘E says ‘is name is Nosderall or sometime like ‘dat. Shacktee seemed pretty comfortable wit’ it, so’s…I jus’ played along wit’ em. So Nosderall tells us dat Darth Krayt may be sufferin’ from sometin’ called “Rack Fever.” Or dat ‘es lookin’ fer some kinda source fer immortality. I decide ta leave all da high ‘tinkin stuff ta Visas an’ Shacktee.
We ‘rive in Dantooing an’ discover dat it’s pretty nice! Dere’s not much civilization an’ not very populated. My kinda place! Soon as we come outa ‘iper space, we get a message from Mya, sayin’ dat she’s okay. Visas makes ‘rangements wit ‘er ta meet at da Lady Fate Casina in Ord Mantell. Ends up dat dis place is completely in da opposite way we went, grrr. Visas wanted ta ‘mediately go to dis meetin’ but I manage ta convince ‘er ta let me go planetside an’ “resupply” (Prrr). Me an’ Sacktee go inta da port an’ meet da Portmaster Riken. ‘E tries ta hustle us, but I manage ta scare ‘im straight an’ ‘e recommends us ta go meet wit’ a friend o’ ‘is named Torgo da ‘Utt! ‘Dis oughta be good.
I found Torgo an’ we entered inta discussion on what we wanted an’ what ‘e wanted… It took some doin’ but I tink I got us a pretty good deal (jus’ gotta keep Shacktee from sniffin’ inta da shipment too closely). Torgo tells me dat we gotta meet wit’ ‘is contact at da Bets Off Bar on da Jubilee Wheel (‘is names Arkoon). Da next day, Riken showed up wit’ a coupla’ Gamorreans ta carry da supplies. Dey gave us some dummy supplies an’ one special box (sealed) dat I took right away an’ stashed in hiding. I gotta really m ake sure dat Shacktee doesn’t break dat seal, if ‘e does I’m gonna ‘aveta kill ‘im.
Well we ‘rive in da Ord Mantell system an’ I ‘splain ta Visas our contact is waitin’ fer us at da Jubilee Wheel an’ dat we gotta meet wit’ ‘im dere (she seems a bit ‘esitant, but I tink da credits’ll convince ‘er). So me an’ Shacktee go an’ meet wit dis Arkoon guy an’ ‘e spects da “special” box an’ seems pretty ‘appy dat da seal is tact. Prrr. Shacktee seems a little miffed at dat. Snif. I manage ta get da resta da stuff unloaded an’ we give Visas ‘er share (dis seems ta make ‘appy as a kitten wit’ cream). She den moves us over tad a Lady Fate Casina an’ our meetin’ wit Mya.
Ta shorten ‘tings a bit, Mya tells us dat Kurgle seems ta be sufferin’ from some’tim like da Rack Fever ‘ting an’ a possible cure should be on a livin’ planet named Zanoma. Da problem is dat dis planet ‘as ‘is own ‘iperdirve an’ is currently missin’! Grrr. Dis is beginnin’ ta get my fur up. Why can dey jus’ stay where dey’re supposed ta! Mya tells us dat da las’ time da planet was seen was in da direction o’ Chiss space… Dis is startin’ ta spoil my meal. So “we” decide ta ‘ed straight away afta dis ‘ere planet an’ try an save Kurgle. I didn’t even get a chance ta turn some kinda deal on dis trip…Or get some armor either…
So, we ‘ed out inta ‘iperspace wit’ Mya “givin’” us da “co-ordinates.” Dis should be good… As we’re travelin’ I over ‘ear Shacktee talkin’ ‘bout our comm. System “miss-firin’” an’ ‘parently actin’ up. Dis makes me a bit nervous, since dis is da firs’ time Mya’s been on our ship an’ now we’re ‘eadin’ ta Chiss Space? Afta a coupla days travel, we suddenly got yanked outta ‘iperspace by a Chiss military patrol, isn’t dis convenient? I pull my gun on Mya an’ keep a close eye on ‘er. She ‘parently manages ta sweet talk ‘er way tru tad a Chiss in charge an’ we get taken on borad one o’ deir big battle ship’s hold! Man dat’s a big ship!
‘Figured out dat we were da only foreigners on ship, ‘cus dere weren’t any oders ‘round in da docking bay. Dey did ‘ave some o’ dere “special” fighters (Shacktee seems awful interested in ‘dem), as soon as we were docked, we ‘ad us some visitors. Funny ‘ting was dat dey all saluted Mya as soon as dey saw ‘er (fishier an’ fishier). Mya got “escorted” off as soon as she ‘splained ta sa officer what we were doin’ dere, Hmmm… Soon as she lef’ da officer ‘splained ta us dat we had “free rein” on ‘dis level an’ ta not leave it. But dere was two soldiers posted at each of da entrances tad a bay area.
Afta da CO lef’ we decided ta do some ‘splorin’ an’ look inta da place. Da ship was pretty standard stuff. Interstin’ ting was dat all of da Chiss where ‘quipped wit’ some kinda blaster dat wasn’t anyting I ever saw afore… Durin’ our ‘slporin’ Mya conveniently “found” us an’ ‘splained dat ‘er family was ‘parently very connected inda military an’ dat was why dey all saluted ‘er…Hmm (I’m not so sure ‘bout dis stuf). She’d ‘parently been goin’ tru some kinda debriefin’, yeah I bet.
Mya did ‘splain dat Zanoma was las’ seen ‘eaded inta Killick Space? What da ‘ell is a Killick? Mya ‘splained dat da Killicks an’ da Chiss ‘ave ‘parently been warring wit’ each odder fer a very long time. It jus’ so ‘appens dat da Chiss ‘ave also come ta some kinda ‘greement wit’ da Sith. Sometin’ like a non-gression agreemen’. Durin’ dis ‘istory lesson, I asked ‘bout da possibility o’ getting’ our hands on some ‘quipmen’. Mya said she’d look inta it fer us.
Afta dis, Shacktee wen’ ‘slporin’ an’ lookin’ inta da special fighters dey use. He ‘splained ta me dat dey use some kinda “maser” instead o’ da standard lasers dat mos’ peoples use. Dis ‘splains da weird guns dey’re all totin’! ‘E also ‘splained dat dey was ‘quippin’ da fighter wit’ some kinda bug bomb based on a biological weapon. Dis ‘parently works best ‘gainst dem Killicks an’ since we’re ‘eddin’ dat way, dey figured dey oughta be prepared…
Mya brought us some ‘quipmen. I managed ta buy a set up o’ flight suit. ‘Parently Shacktee wanted a ‘droid an’ she delivered an ugly on at dat. Guess we’ll see ‘ow good a mechanic Shacktee’ll be fixin’ this un.
After Mya lef’, we decided ta take a little looksee that da Chiss might not ‘prove o’. I’d noticed earlier an air-vent that looked like it’d serve nicely for accessin’ areas, on da sly. I removed da screen pretty easily an’ Visas guided us tru ‘em ta anudder level. After a while, we came ta a area dat had some pretty heavy duty filterin’ goin’ on. We decided ta avoid ‘em an’ wen’ anudder way into an access poin’ inna hallway. ‘Ventually we made it ta a doorway dat looked kinda interstin’ an’ Shacktee jus’ opened it up wit’ no prob. When we wen’ in, I decided ta keep tad a shade an’ hid. Shacktee pretty much just stood right dere wit’ Viasa gapin’ in at da guys in da udder room. See dere was a big window an’ we could see in dere dat dere was tree guys in hazmat suits workin’ in some kinda lab. While I was lookin’ one o’ da guys turned an’ I caught a glimpse o’ red an’ black on his face. Da udder two guys had blue faces like da Chiss. I figured Kharma’s a bitch an’ she put dat damn sith lord Hayt on my ass again! What did I do ta piss ‘er off?
I knew I hadda act fast. After Shacktee ‘splained about the lab an’ it’s safety procedures, I yelled at ‘im ta seal da room (I didn’ wanna kill the Chiss if I had ta). So He seals da room, Boom! Dat got da Chiss’s ‘tention. Dey looked over at us wit’ a pretty big question on dere faces an’ alla sudden da sealed section ‘sploded! An’ covered an area of it in grey ooze. Well da Chiss took off runnin’ an’ only one o’ dem made it out ‘fore I nuked da room! Dat pretty much killed Hayte! I tink… Anyway, a bunch o’ alarms was goin’ off, so we booked it back tad a ship an’ layed low, like we weren’t up ta anythin’.
‘Ventually, Mya came a’ snoopin’ an’ pretty much asked us if we had anythin’ ta do wit’ a lab ‘splodin’, course we told ‘er da truth an’ said “Nope, don’ know nuttin’ ‘bout it.” She bought it.
Da next day, da ship came outta ‘iperspace fer no ‘parent reason. Mya seemed a bit worried ‘bout it an’ said she was goin’ ta go look inta it. She lef’. After she left, da power wen’ out on da entire ship! An’ still no word from Mya (go figure). We met an’ decided ta get ready ta leave, since things looked bad. We oughta get ready ta leave asap! Me an’ Shacktee went out ta unlock da magnet ‘oldin’ da ship down. Visas would try an’ get a hold o’ Mya (I’m not sure about dat bein da best ting right now). I took up a guardin’ position at da bottom o’ da ramp an’ Shacktee wen’ off on ‘is own ta unlock da ship. After ‘e lef’, I saw a soldier shufflin’ towards me.
Dis guy starts tryin’ ta sweet talk me, an’ is complainin’ ‘bout him not feelin’ too good. I just tol’ ‘im ta stay back an’ not ‘proach da ship, but he keeps comin’… I kept warnin’ ‘im. ‘E finally sneezes at me! I managed ta duck it, dat’s when I notice dat his face is drippin’ grey stuff (like from da lab). So I open fire on ‘is slimey ass! Never did like germ warfare, not very ‘onorable. Afta I shot ‘im, I noticed dat all o’ da ooze stuff was movin’ ‘bout an’ gatherin’ tagether. So’s I keep shootin’ it. All da while I ‘ear Shacktee start shootin’.
All o’ a sudden, anudder one o’ dese tings comes up outta nowhere’s an’ tries ta get on board. Problem is, I already shot at da udder one an’ I didn’ ‘ave a bead on ‘im. Well Kurgle saved da day an’ flicked ‘im back wit’ ‘is force powers (be nice if Visas could do sometin’ like dat). Den ‘e collapsed.
I radioed ta Visas ‘bout our visitor an’ ‘bout Kurgle an’ recommended Visas move da ship away. Dats when we ‘eard from Mya, an’ she told us ta leave wit’ out ‘er! Well, I’m not too sure ‘bout ‘er , but I figure she isn’t one o’ dese oozey guys, an’ we shouldn’t leave ‘er ta deir mercies. So I recommends ta Visas ta ‘ead over ta where she’s supposed ta be, an’ we’ll pick up Shacktee along da way.
As we were movin’ along, I kept lookin’ fer Shacktee, but couldn’a see ‘im. ‘E’s ‘parently pretty damn sneaky when ‘e wants ta be. I do see some one openin’ fire on a group an’ I figure dat it’s gotta be Mya, so I opens up my own fire, an’ start blowin’ away at ‘em. Shortly after dat, Shacktee pops up otta nowhere an’ lands right next ta me on da ramp an’ scuttles right on up it. I keeps firin’ at da slimers ta clear da way fer Mya. She ‘ventually decides ta join us. Immediately afterwards Visas orders me ta close da ramp. It’s not like she was down ‘ere fightin’ it out wit’ dese tings.
When I finally gets up top, I discover dat I musta ‘it Shacktee when I was layin’ down da suppressive fire. I ‘pologize ta ‘im. We ‘ventually get away from da driftin’ corvette an’ make our way inta ‘iperspace an’ ta more trouble…
