Episode VI.i
New Lords and The Wyrm

Still reeling from a major defeat at the hands of The Alliance at The Battle of Endor eight Corrosant months prior, The Empire are heavily focused on securing the systems they hold and preparing for further battles to come.

Without the leadership of Darths Sidious and Vader, the Empire has divided itself into warring factions with each leader seeking to declare himself Emperor of the Galaxy.

Inspired by and with the aid of the Alliance, many system have risen up against the oppression of the Empire. Very few have been successful in securing their freedom. For many more, Imperial retribution has been swift and brutal.

Far from the machinations of major powers, the crew of the Pyrite Wyrm seek to deliver their cargo to the planet Ni Pa-Yon, collect their pay, reload for another journey and hopefully meet their obligations.

Little do they know the dangers and opportunities which lie ahead…

Delivery to Ni Pa-Yon

GM: We catch up wit the crew of the Pyrite Wyrm in hyperspace, already en route to their destination.

Xiisco: Ni Pa-Yon is another 13 hours away (taps fuel gauge) so we should definitely have enough fuel to get us there.

Squiddy: Should?

Xiisco: Definitely.

Kalisary (over intercom): It’s cold down here! I need another blanket.

Rikkard (over shoulder over intercom): And we’re out of blue milk!

Xiisco: (Polite as he can muster): Blankets are located in the vertical locker. We apologise for the lack of blue milk.

Kalisary: And these pillows smell and are lumpy!

Xiisco (Now yelling down the hall way): Your passage doesn’t include pillows!

GM: Thirteen hours later…

Squiddy: Coming up on Ni Pa-Yon system.

GM: The Pyrite Wyrm drops out of hyperspace with the planet Ni Pa-Yon in view up ahead. Almost immediately, the cockpit is filled with the sound of a proximity alarm…

Session 1: Welcome to Ni-Pa Yon

GM: Mick
Ziggs – Zabrak Tracker and Sharpshooter (Michael)
Squiddy – Droid Co-pilot (Scott)
Kalisari – Human Fresh faced Medic (Courtney)
Rikkard – Human Travelling Salesman (James)
Krom – Barabel Ship’s Muscle (Jase)
Xiico – Verpine Privateer (Dominic)

Upon Arrival on Ni-Pa Yon, the Pyrite Wyrm is wrenched out of hyperspace due to safety measures. They ship lurches into sub-space and the passengers and crew are greeted with the sight of a mine-field surrounding the planet. Squiddy begins his scanning, and Xiico proceeds to “fly casually” towards the “opening” in the field and the Victory Class Star Destroyer standing overwatch.

The ship lands on the planet without incident, the passengers and crew are then subjected to an hour and a half wait while Imperial Customs search for contraband.

After their wait, the crew head to a local cantina, where the Barabel almost starts a fight, and Xiico exclaims that it would be almost classed as entertaining on a Frontier World (with Squiddy tearing up the dance floor, and a mysterious human coming up to Xiico and Kalisari to leave a mysterious data cube, before running off to get shot by a storm-trooper squad)

The group head back to the Pyrite Wyrm, are accosted by a Reporter, and learn about the troubles in the Empire (though Xiico tries to imply that acts of terrorism are wrong regardless of source, and debates with the reporter that “how can you start a war, if only one side has a nation to stand behind”) After the Reporter leaves (a human called Jek Perkins), Squiddy scans the ship, finds some bugs (Xiico prefers the term unauthorised listening devices) and the group then decrypt the data from the mysterious data cube which was slipped to Kalisari.

The PCs discover there is a political refugee who needs to be transported off planet. They setup a meet, and head to the contact. Discovering a bounty hunter has tailed them, the group set Krom on the hapless bounty hunter. A short interlude occurs where Xiico and Squiddy misinterpret the “rules of engagement” around the interrogation of sentient beings (where Squiddy shoves a plasteel light bulb into the captive bounty hunter)

More investigations, and the PCs find out there is a bounty on the “package”. The group then sets about planning how they would transport the package away. (Squiddy and Xiico plan on stealing the bounty hunter’s ship, and performing a switch between the package and Kalisari)

Session ended there, as the PCs begin to plan.
