Life and Death Decisions

PART TWO: Pest Control

Having freed Lara Loronar, the group had holed up in a guard station on the twentieth tier of the main prison block. There were still well over a thousand prisoners on the ship. Rath had chosen to move forward to Glasya and Taegan Sithkiller’s locations in solitary once they got Bruce patched up. Cho was learning to focus the Force through his martial arts. Jarael stood guard as Lara attempted to hack into the Jedi detention area and shut down power to the cells remotely.

Power and lights were already failing in some rear areas of the dungeoneer ship, probably from invasive void spiders looking for places to lay egg sacks. To make matters worse, someone had opened several tiers in the rear of the cell block as if to feed the spiders on purpose. Sage Tymon was in one of these cells, clad in his bright orange prison garb, when the door buzzed and slid open to the flickering lights and shadows beyond…

Guard Control Station Forward-Level 20-Port

Having defeated the dungeoneer wardens in the area and their Sith Adept overseer, the group had stopped in the guard control room to tend Bruce’s cuts and bruises. The immediate threat of the spiders in their cell block had been neutralized.

The team had rescued Lara Loronar, but still had a short list of people Rath was interested in getting out. Then there were the thousand plus doomed prisoners still on board, waiting to be eaten alive by void spiders. A heavy dilemma for the Force-sensitive jedi…

Into the Void...
The Reunion Tour

Arachnid Nebula ~ 5 years 3 months ABY

With the Heliopolis project on Shesharile 5 underway, people had been busy with construction projects, buisiness negotiations and establishing the new law enforcement. Maya was now showing with her twin girls, being nearly seven months along. Even Yerkys ne Dago seemed to be happy to contribute to the success of the operation.

Then came the HoloComm message from “Black Hole”, an Imperial Security Bureau Agent and Sith Mind Master. The dungeoneer ship Cerebus had been set adrift in the Arachnid nebula, home of the void spiders. Onboard were not only former team members Sage, Evincar and Quinn, but many others from Rath’s past including Lara Loranar, the granddaughter of Gunther Loranar. It seemed the Dark Lord had been gathering those he deemed valuable enough to bait Rath into the treacherous space where certain doom would await him…

To Save Shesharile...
Bail Organa's Legacy

Shesharile 5 ~ 5 ABY

With the victorty at Corellia, the Rebel Alliance once again celebrated its heroes. Only eight months after the victory at Endor, a major Imperial fleet was defeated and Corellia vowed to join the Alliance. Among the most celebrated individuals were fighter ace Colonel Moorvack Limpan and ground commander Captain Bruce Testa. Wakka was posthumously awarded the Alliance Medal of Honor for his personal sacrifice.

The Aesad Aerap fleet recieved recognition for their participation in the battle and entered negotiations for full membership and trade relations with the New Republic. Colonel Flambeaux arranged for all participants to be awarded a gold campaign medal depicting Corellia with 30 star destroyers and one super star destroyer placed around the planet on one face and the phoenix emblem of the Rebellion with six Y-wings and a Corellian Corvette on the other side.

It would take another three months of bureacratic maneuvering and preparations before Rath Sunrider pulled together his Shesharile Relief Mission. Led by the Utopian Princess, a small supply fleet with some escort ships left Corellia bound for the Outer Rim and Shesharile 5.

Shesharile’s economy had collapsed. The local woolong was valued at one-twentieth of an Imperial credit, less in some places. Gang violence was rampant. What law enforcement had been in place had now become as corrupt and violent as the gangs they once opposed. Loronar technology that had once served to protect the people was now turned against them by the criminals who acquired it. Some mechanized droid units went rogue, rampaging the dense urban enviroment. Others, like the LE-VO droids were uncorruptible and suffered huge losses.

The former Heliopolis Compound had become a massive squatter city among the bombed out factory ruins. Mechanized walkers and combat droids patrolled the worst areas of town, enforcing what laws the criminal heirarchy for those regions saw fit to enact. Former precincts had become squatter complexes or gang headquartes, sometimes ran by former LALA officers. Bombings were frequent and the drug and explosives trades flourished in an economy where more legitimate buisiness choked to death under heavy taxation and strongarming by thugs.

This fifth moon of the gas giant Shesharile was large enough to be a planet itself. Along with Sesharile 6, they were known as the “Twin Planets” despite the fact that they were moons. Shesharile 5 had been devastated by the corrupt government that ran it. This moon was known for its resorts, but they were dirty and cared little about the environment they were destroying. Pollution had led to ecological disaster, and the inhabitants had regressed to become warring factions. Each group blamed the others for destroying the twins. Much of the commerce on the moon was once centered around making the Imperials that controlled the Minos Cluster happy, so when the Empire and pulled out Shesharile 5 went into a swift decline. Rath Sunrider’s Heliopolis Compound mad an effort to start to rebuild the economy but was bombed by Imperials for supplying the Rebellion. Much of the planet is run by gangs under the control of Yerkys ne Dago.

Battle of Tatooine
Fun in the sun

The team received a call from the rebel base in the system saying they intercepted a call from Imperial forces on Tatooine. There is an ongoing standoff between the remaining Imperials and Rebel factions. So far no Imperials have sent a message saying they would back them up, so the hope is that a group of rebels/new republic forces can move in and end the battle before any Imperials show up . . .

Flight to the Fleet

Destroyed Imperial Base Mimban ~ Three Months After Endor (Day Three)

Taking Sage up on his offer, Admiral Ackbar and three of his surviving rebels are planning to take the Gryphon with a fighter escort and make a run for Dac (Mon Calamari). Once there, he will return with Home One and a small fleet of Nebulon-B’s and Corellian Corvettes. The other eight rebels led by Flambeaux are going to man and defend the subspace radio station until the Fleet arrives.

Sage wants to repair the Sentinel Shuttle, which was heavily damaged. Wakka will be scrounging parts from the various scattered wreckage. Rath intends to take a stealth bike and head into the swamp to confront the Life Witch. Naomi, Jarael and Bruce have already decided to accompany him. The Night Ravens and Scout Troopers are still out there…

In Search of the Smoking Blaster

Mimban Swamp ~ Three Months After Endor (Day Three)

Following a reading Rex had alerted them to on sensors, Sage had dropped our heroes stolen Imperial Sentinel Shuttle through the mist over a clearing where they spotted a scout trooper followed by two storm commandos on speeder bikes. Wakka and Bruce manned the blasters to take out the storm commandos but the two Night Ravens were too quick and veered into the treeline, disappearing into the mist. Rath fired the bank of eight lasers, cutting the scout trooper in half and hurtling his bike into the trees where it exploded.

Hoping to retrieve the scout trooper’s helmet and potentially valuable mapping data of the region, Rath asked Sage to hover the shuttle so that he could drop down and search for the helmet.
