Tales of the Gryphon

Mindor

General Skywalker Needs You

Late in 5 ABY Cronal, taking the name of “Shadowspawn”, became a warlord, heading one of the many Imperial splinter factions that opposed the New Republic. He had devised a technique that made him able to take over people’s minds, and he used this also on Nick Rostu. Nick then became the figure known to the galaxy as ‘Shadowspawn’. Blackhole had more of these Pawns, all people he had taken prisoner in his campaigns. Following the death of their master, several of the Emperor’s Royal Guards that had not participated in the mass suicides thinning their number joined Shadowspawn’s cause. Shadowspawn was able to capture and hold the Inner Rim, while making the strategically advantageous world of Mindor his base of operations. With his shadow stormtroopers deployed, Shadowspawn committed acts of terrorism and piracy, in addition to wholesale slaughter against worlds of the New Republic. It was Shadowspawn’s hope that he could break the Republic’s hold on the galaxy and breed fears of an Imperial—and Sith—resurgence. In aid of this, he declared himself to be the new Galactic Emperor, intending to fully restore the Galactic Empire .

Refusing to tolerate Shadowspawn’s destructive bid for power, Luke Skywalker—now a General of the New Republic—led the campaign against Shadowspawn to free the worlds of the Inner Rim he had conquered, resulting in a protracted and bloody string of battles that left thousands dead.

Toward the end of the campaign, his troops entrenched themselves on Mindor in preparation for Skywalker’s inevitable assault. There, Shadowspawn hoped to lure the heroes of the Republic into his trap. Skywalker soon attacked the planet, with the aid of Fenn Shysa’s Mandalorian Protectors, Han Solo, Leia Organa, Chewbacca, C-3PO, R2-D2, and the pilots of Rogue Squadron.

Under the advice of some of the New Republic’s greatest military minds and against the will of Chief of State Mon Mothma, General Skywalker called the shadowy and violent unit called Phoenix Squadron to aid in the assault.

The group made the two day jump from Garos IV to Myrkr to find Ysalamiri to counter Cronal’s Force abilities. Myrkr was on the way to Mindor, which was only another day with the advanced hyperdrives the group was using. It would take General Crix Madine twelve days to arrive with the ISD Eradicator. General Skywalker would be there in six days at last report,

Hyllyard City was a small frontier city on the planet Myrkr. The capital city of Myrkr, Hyllyard was colonized during the end of the Galactic Civil War. It never became very popular, but was nevertheless the largest center of activity on the isolated planet. Hyllyard was home to various smugglers, fugitives and traders during the early years of the New Republic.

After a heated argument with the shopkeeper over the stolen statuary, Cho headef to a strip club to confront a group of Talon Karrde’s men and arrange a meeting with Karrde.

Rath and Bruce hit a farm store on the edge of town to pick up seed. Three speeder trucks and five ULAVs rolled up and 25 thugs got out. Three nasty looking dogs rushed Rath as Bruce waded through the thugs. In the end a few managed to flee. Then a giant snake slithered up and Rath and Bruce made quick workbof it too.

As Jarael and Jade moved their tank into the Phoenix, Talon Karrde showed up. Using all the suave charm he could muster, he invited the billionaire beauties in power armor to dinner.
