This will be a quick one..
We must ready ourselves.. Gather what we can and hope that what little we have will aid us with this upcoming adversity, as we descend into our deaths below the treetops of Kashyyyk.
Silly wookiee.. What was he thinking running off to the Underworld like that?

((this is the short session that we had on the Friday night to get back into it and figure out where the rest of the weekend was heading))

Still overcome by the sadness and anger caused by the death of our captain and Elara, 4 weeks later and I still haven’t spoken much to anyone, at all. I felt like everyone and everything else around me deserved the same level of suffering as I was experiencing, and so with every chance that I got I made sure that everyone felt the same negative energy as I did. Aside from that, I spent most of my days keeping to myself; thinking.

The Empress invited Kylar, Punar, Wrrlirr and me to a dinner. She has provided us a home since the Attack of Coruscant, but even so, there wasn’t much dialogue going in within her household.
Taking our seats on the table, we began our meal in silence. The food was incredible, of course, and yet no one showed any sort of appreciation, or even any attempts at conversation. Until the Empress finally spoke. Not paying much attention to what she was saying, I barely remember what she had actually said. She spoke about our encounter with the Sith, and everything that had happened on that day. I spoke with much bitterness towards her; it was harsh, even I would admit this, but my tongue just lashed out words that the Empress didn’t deserve. She started feeling guilty about the outcome of the attack. Like it was all her fault.
Being the stubborn Twi’lek that I am, I let her suffer…

The Empress, feeling like there was no point in going on with this conversation, eventually changed the topic. I could tell that she had no idea how to get her point across, so she just ended up saying it, “Vox and I have a child together”. This caught me by surprise, as I’m sure it would’ve to everyone else in that room. She was surprised that this was news to us, Vox’s crew. I can tell that she was almost upset by it. But she quickly got herself together and continued.
She told us how her daughter was kidnapped 4 years ago. Her kidnappers asked for ransom in exchange for their daughter, but after coming to the meeting place with the money, the kidnappers never showed. This is the reason why Vox left the life of a noble and became a mercenary – to find his daughter.
The Empress asked us, begged us to look for her daughter. Just as I was about to reply, suddenly the sounds around me were somehow blocked out as my vision started to dim, as if being overcome by a grey mist.

For a split second all I saw was darkness, until I saw a white room. In it, a single seed. The seed suddenly sprouted into a shoot, which quickly grew into a plant, which quickly turned into a tree that kept on growing bigger and bigger. Around it grew other trees. Until eventually my vision was covered with gigantic, luscious trees. And then there was a fire. A fire that quickly spread from the trunk of the tree onto its branches. As the leaves caught on fire, the flames quickly spread from one tree to the others, turning this vision into a blazing inferno.

I was woken up by the sound of the Empress’ voice, as she slapped my face back into consciousness. “What happened?”, she asked. But it was the Jedi who spoke first. He tried to explain the vision to the Empress; the wookiee, being angrier by the minute was just being hysterical, continually saying that we must go to Kashyyyk. The whole time, I was just confused. Wondering what the vision was, what it means, and why was it shared by the 4 of us, but not the Empress. We all left the dining room in a hurry, momentarily forgetting our previous grievances.
Kylar contacted the Jedi Council in Coruscant to inform them of our vision. In the mean time, we tried to reason out with Wrrlirr, but the whole time he was just raging at the fact that we haven’t made any move towards Kashyyyk yet. I thought it would be unwise to travel to Kashyyyk regardless of what the vision means. Especially since the Sith invasion over the lost worlds.

In the end, we find ourselves travelling to Kashyyyk with the Empress and the Jedi. Whilst in hyperspace, we get a holocall in the cockpit. We answered the transmission and saw a confident male figure appear. He introduced himself as WHATSHISNAME?, which I believe is one of the few heads of the Exchange. He told us that Vox owed them 1 million credits, and that we are now responsible for repaying this debt. We recorded the conversation, but before we found out any more, Punar turned the holocam off. Suddenly the power in the Black Nova started failing, and we found ourselves drifting through space.

We quickly got to work, trying to find and repair the damges in the ship. It wasn’t long until the first shots were fired. With the power generator down, we sat there vulnerable. The Black Nova was barely holding off when enemies started boarding our ship. A fight broke out, our ship badly damaged; until Wrrlirr finally managed to get the generators working again. We were able to turn our energy shield on and were about to jump back into hyperspace when suddenly we were fired upon by the enemy ships outside. Our shield died down and more enemy reinforcements boarded our ship. We finally jumped into hyperspace, just managing to escape a grave fate. We managed to defeat the remaining enemies in our ship, and just as we started to catch our breaths another transmission went through. Again recording the conversation, we answered it. It was WHATSHISNAME again. Openly admitting that the attack was his way of emphasising his point about repaying Vox’s debts. He said that we can either repay the 1 million credits, or do a specific job for him whenever he needs us to do it. He wouldn’t give away much information, aside from the fact that if we are to take on his offer, we are to go to Coruscant to meet with his ambassadors. If we are to decline, then we would be assassinated. Confident, he shut the transmission off as we finally reached Kashyyyk. Which looked as peaceful as ever, as opposed to the burning wreck that we saw in our vision…

The Sith are here!”, Senator Krida yelled out as the Senate Hall got bombarded by the massive warships that have appeared directly above us. Panic quickly spread amongst the Senators as the foundation of the building collapsed all around us. As the room quickly emptied, most of the senators managed to escape while some faced an unfortunate end from falling debris. A group of enemy Sith charged the room outnumbering us as we stood in the middle podium, helpless. I saw Senator Dain reveal 2 blaster pistols with the clear intention of fending off the attackers; I jumped off the platform and ran towards her. I saw Wrrlirr look up as the battle initiated around us. Following his gaze, I came to realise that the only thing holding the structure together is the energy field that formed the shield around the Senate hall. I told everyone to fall back, asking Elara to trust me as I continuously approached her.
As I got to the senator, more enemies approached from a rear entrance, trapping us in the middle of combat. I ran back to Wrrlirr telling him to shut down the energy shield but I was knocked unconscious by a piece of falling debris. I regained consciousness a few seconds later to the sound of M3-D1’s voice, and I quickly ran towards the exit. We managed to escape along with Elara as we got a message from Master Ooroo through the comlink asking us to make our way to the Jedi Temple immediately.

Elara let us use her speeder as she explained to us the importance of defending this last remaining symbol of the Republic in Coruscant. We went around the Temple to assess the situation and find anything that we can use to our advantage, to no avail. Eventually, we entered the temple where we were greeted by Master Ooroo who told us to defend the front entrances as the Padawans escaped to safety. Unsure about our ability to hold this front line and survive, I tried to look around for anything that can help us in the upcoming battle. I asked Jedi Master Nova if there were any extra firepower that he can provide to us, which he grievously replied to by telling us that there were neither extra men nor weapons that he could spare for our battle. As I assessd the possibility of collapsing the 2 front towers of the temple, completely sealing off the front entrance, I remembered about the stack of fragmentation grenades that we purchased a few days ago from the Undercity. I handed 4 of my grenades to Wrrlir and he quickly got to work, setting them up to be controlled by a remote detonator. We then all hid, preparing an ambush to a second wave of enemy attack.

It wasn’t long until we saw the significantly smaller-sized second wave of Sith attackers. I recognised that in addition to the creatures that we have encountered before at the Senate building, there were also 2 Mandalorians that were marching towards us. Trying to find the best window of opportunity, Wrrlir blew up the 1st grenade, severely wounding 4 of the 7 enemies approaching. Battle ensued, with us having the advantage of being the defenders. As the creatures approached quicker than we have timed, I threw my last remaining grenade towards 2 of the closest enemies, in the hopes of setting off one of the grenades that we have planted on the ground. It worked, causing great damage to 5 of the creatures. The 2 Mandalorians flew straight towards us at the back while Punar and Kylar held the front lines. I continuously checked the halls behind me to see if the Padawans have all escaped, or if there any other enemies that would try to flank us from the rear. One of the Mandalorians turned around and started setting fire to Wrrlir with his jetpack. Wrrlir, disregarding the fact that he was just set ablaze threw a grenade towards the 2 Mandalorians in front of us. I saw that the 2 other Jedis who were trying to help us have fallen in battle, and I’ve realised that Punar and Kylar won’t be able to hold the front much longer. I came to assist them as M3-D1 extinguished the fire that’s quickly consuming the hairy wookie. Preoccupied by the battle in front of me, I didn’t realise that the other Mandalorian had aimed his own jetpack towards Elara. I turned around and tried to help her but there was nothing I could’ve done, as she was already dead by the time the battle was over. I carried her in my arms as Ooroo came to tell us that the Padawans have all escaped. As we looked out of the Temple we saw an impending army of Sith lead by an ominous figure coming towards us. Ooroo told us to leave and get to safety. I brought the body of Elara with me for some reason that I wasn’t certain about at the time. I just really felt like I didn’t want to let her go, to leave her behind. We watched as Ooroo sacrificed himself by making the 2 gigantic towers collapse all around him and the army of Sith. We watched him die in front of us, as he sacrificed himself to make sure of our survival. However, the figure came out of the rubble, seemingly unharmed, retreating. Jedi Master Nova approached and told us that we can end the war if we manage to intercept the Dark Lord’s ship. However, we hear Vox talking to us in the com-link, obviously in pain. We lost contact of him before we found out anything about his situation. We quickly debated whether to go to the Dark Lord or rescue our captain. Overcome by my friendship with Vox, I decided that we shall go and rescue him. However, as we were about to leave, (Yoda) stopped Kylar and told him that this is a mission that he couldn’t refuse. As we separated from Kylar I asked him if he needed my assistance. I was sure that Vox would’ve understood, and I was almost certain that he would’ve done the same if he was in the same situation. However, Kylar decided to go without me, and so Punar, Wrrlir and I set off to find Vox.

We arrived at a chaotic scene where Vox is lying on the floor, bleeding excessively as he tried to defend the civilians that were trying to run towards the escape pods. Weighing in all of our options, I’ve decided that the best thing to do was to bring Vox with us to safety at the Black Nova, which was almost directly right behind us. As we started to fall back and I explained my decision to Vox, he told me that he specifically got into this mess in order to help the civilians survive. After telling him that it was indeed a lost cause, he called me a coward. Overcome by emotions, I charged at the enemies hoping to attract their attention away from the injured captain, and also all the other civilians. I ran into the middle of combat with the intention of dying, for Vox, for Ooroo, for Elara, for the Republic. Aiming my pistols at the creatures, 2 of them charged at me with their axe suspended high in the air, ready to swing. All I could do was watch helplessly as I saw my quickly approaching death charge towards me.

I was awoken a few minutes later by Punar. I took a few seconds to realise what had happened, and that the battle was over. I quickly got up and rushed towards Vox, but it wasn’t the sight I had hoped to see. Vox is lying dead in a pool of his own blood. None of the civilians had managed to escape, and I felt like we had failed our old captain…

It had been a very grave day for the Republic. With the lost of so many heroic lives, and countless more innocent ones; it was at least comforting to know that we have managed to be victorious against the Sith’s surprise invasion. However, we have all agreed that surely there will be more following this initial attack. There is obviously an upcoming war and we can only guess what, when and how the enemies will attack next.
Kylar have earned his rank as a Jedi Knight through his efforts during the past few days. And without Vox to lead the crew, the Black Nova has now fallen to the shared ownership of me, Punar and Wrrlir.
And for some bizarre reason, I just have a really bad feeling about this…

Great Hyperspace War - Session 3

Lately I’ve been reading about the tales of great Twi’leks who have achieved considerable greatness through their skills in entrepreneurship. I was reading about the legend of a specific Twi’lek called Ryun Ven, who owned a very expensive mineral. He was known to sell the mineral at a considerably low price, however, unknown to all, he sneaks into the homes of his customers to steal the mineral back; doing the same process over and over again, until he became the richest Twi’lek in that area of the galaxy. As I was reading in my quarters, thinking about how riches can allow me to liberate Ryloth from slavery, I’ve realised the quietness in our new ship, the Black Nova.
I got up and walked into the cockpit where I saw all my companions. I approached Vox to ask him about his thoughts regarding our recent experience in the planet of Ronnika. He seemed fine, and so did everyone else. So after checking our supplies, I came back to my quarters to wait for our landing in Coruscant.

We landed in Coruscant and were greeted by the landing officer. It took me a while to recognise him, but as soon as I did ________ told me of news of a young maiden who operates a new cortosis mine in the nearby planet of Nessam. I told Vox of this information and he seemed to be keen on checking out the planet himself. I thanked _____ and told him that we’d visit Nessam soon; and with that, Vox sent us off to find supplies while Master Ooroo meets with his fellow Jedi Masters regarding the upcoming Sith invasion.

In search for good bargains, we ended up in the Under City where we were able to refill our supplies and get upgrades for the ship. I also visited the armoury where I purchased a second vibroblade and another blaster pistol to give as a present for Vox. We sent Punar to go back and watch over the ship as we continued to venture around in the Undercity for any additional purchase. We walked past a band of armed men, escorting a cuffed wookie towards a small alleyway. Wrrlir pulled out his bowcaster, but I told him to drop his weapon as I tried to inquire about the situation. They dismissed my question, and so Wrrlir aimed his bowcaster towards them. I asked again one last time, but they seemed to be in a hurry. I quickly pulled out my 2 pistols and fired at one of the men, immediately killing him. Kylar killed the other as the last one ran away. I chased him into a room and was surprised to see 2 battle droids aiming at me, but he was nowhere to be found. I head into another room and saw 4 deactivated droids. I point my gun at the man’s foot, trying to reason out with him, to stop him from activating the battle droids. Thinking that I had the situation under control, I relaxed my arms when all at once, all the droids in the room were animated, I heard a massive bang from the other room, and I fired both of my pistols hitting the man square in the chest, killing him immediately. Wrrlir rushed into the room and quickly ran towards the computer. I grabbed an ion grenade from his belt and threw it across the room towards the droids, destroying a couple of them, but the other 2 raised their rifles and fired towards me.

I woke up a few minutes later, delirious, until I realised that I have been shot with stun blasters. We discovered a hidden compartment that led to a room filled with 32 other droids. We found a switch that revealed a secret stairs. We went down the stairs and discovered an incinerator holding 2 wookies and 5 Twi’leks as prisoners. We freed them and asked them to come with us to Vox at the Black Nova.

We approach the Black Nova, and I exclaimed how I had a bad feeling about the situation. We entered to see that it was empty despite the fact that we sent Punar to watch over the ship a few hours ago. We started looking all over the Black Nova when I felt a sharp stinging pain at the back of my foot. A few seconds later, I started feeling light-headed and felt like I was about to vomit. I woke up half an hour later feeling the same. I saw the Twi’leks and one of the wookies lying dead, being taken away to be buried. I looked around and saw a number of dead Kouhons around me. We were targeted by assassins!

We went through the security footage and saw a couple of Rodians plant the Kouhons inside the Black Nova. We also saw them plant a tracking bug in a hidden compartment in the ship. Vox told us that he used to smuggle important items from the Exchange, but he had the habit of stealing the shipments. He told us that by destroying the Red Nova, the Exchange hoped to cripple Vox’s operations. The fact that he just got a newer and better ship just angered them even more, and now they are out to kill the next most important thing to Vox – his crew.
Upon closer inspection of the ship, we found an unknown datapad that only says “Krida”. I’ve heard of Krida before. He is the Senator for the planet Rodia, and is known to be very brashed and determined. Unsure of what the datapad could mean, we approached Master Ooroo and informed him of what had conspired. The Jedi master wasn’t sure what to make of the situation as well, so I told him that I will need to keep a close eye on the Senator. I believe he was either in danger, or the source of the danger himself.

We all went to the Senator’s home in Coruscant where we were welcomed by the Rodian politician. He was very open about his main reason for supporting us in this debate of whether or not to spend Republic effort in preparing against a Sith invasion. I stood up and talked to one of his Twi’lek servants. She was of absolute beauty, and so I approached her with different intentions. For some reason, I am particularly wary of the Rodian. Probably because his wit shadows mine, and that made me feel insecure. I talked to the Twi’lek about Krida, and she said that although she was cautious at first, she had come to learn that Krida was a good master. I asked her about Ryloth, not learning much from her, and when I asked her out, she dismissed my offer.

As we exit Krida’s home, I stayed behind him, unsure of anything he might do against us. I am aware that it is treason to accuse a senator of such things, but safety is my first concern. I saw a blaster shot fire across the plaza, hitting Krida on the chest. We see 4 armed men approaching from the other side of the plaza when Krida was shot once again, knocking him unconscious. I told everyone what to do, as I dragged Krida to cover. An intense battle erupted, as I took Krida with me to an empty 2-seater speeder. More men came until 2 20 metre war droids marched into the main plaza. Punar tried to stun one of the enemies in the hope of interrogating him later on, but as he was doing so, he was shot by another man. The battle lasted for a while, until eventually we managed to finish the attackers, after I blew up the last droid.
The senate guards came along with Master Ooroo, and allowed Kylar to investigate the attack.
Needing a good rest, I left the others to investigate on the issue. They regularly contacted me to assist them with any knowledge I might have. The group have concluded that the Exchange is the cause of all these attempts on our lives, although I am fairly certain that 8 thugs and 2 war droids isn’t something the Exchange would do, and it’s pretty hard to think that the Exchange could get 2 gigantic war droids into Coruscant.

I called Empress Teta and asked her to come to Coruscant, believing that her presence can help shift the senators’ votes in our favour, however she believes the complete opposite and refused. She has a particular dislike against Senator Dain, the leader of the opposition, senate representative from Alderaan. The Empress transferred some funds to us to help us recover from the multiple attacks that we have experienced. I cannot help but think that the Empress is starting to have a feeling of appreciation towards me. But then again, she’s an empress and I’m nothing but a mere grunt of the Republic.

I went shopping for more supplies and some extra firepower just in case we end up getting attacked once again. I found out a bit more about Senator Elara Dain through the locals. I came back to our quarters and told them everything I know about the Alderaan senator. We all went to visit her in an attempt to get her support, which would obviously make a huge difference in our efforts. Kylar tried to talk to Dain, and it was clear to me that the young Jedi isn’t that familiar with diplomacy and politics. I took over the conversation and mentioned how an enemy that we don’t know about is the type that is the most to be feared of, and that if we don’t prepare against a Sith invasion, we will be caught off guard. We discussed for a while, and when I told her that “I’d rather risk time and effort, than risk millions of lives”, she finally agreed to support our cause. She handed me a list of senators who can give us additional support in the debate. We set out to talk to them, and told them our stories, and they promised their support in the special senate meeting on the next day.

The moment finally came when we had to address the Republic’s Senate. After speaking for what seemed to be an eternity, we managed to finally get the Senate to believe us and agree for a full scale Republic defence against a Sith invasion. Suddenly, we heard 2 massive explosions as an fleet of exotically designed ships fired at the building we were in. I hear Krida scream “ The Sith! They are here”…..

Great Hypserspace War - Session 2

I was sitting on my bed in the sleeping quarters of the Red Nova, recollecting our previous encounter. What have I lead myself into? I am a Twi’lek! The past few years have certainly been unusual for someone like me. As I sat there, meditating, asking myself such questions, my concentration was broken as I heard the sound of the doors opening ajar. Captain Vox walked into the room and stood at the foot of my bed. It seemed like he was waiting for me to greet him like a normal crew-member should, but I stayed sitting on my bed, waiting for him to proceed. He spoke. He told us that the Empress had paid us for our last mission; money which allowed him to fix the Red Nova, and get us a medical droid which was waiting to be activated in the cargo hold of the ship.

I woke the wookie to help me set the droid up. I have started to be fond of the wookie. Being the only other one to know Shyriiwook (aside from Master Ooroo and the Captain), he spent more time with me more than anyone else in our little band. I can’t help but feel that he’s starting to form a sense of companionship with me too. Though I’ve lived the past few years alone, I kind of don’t mind having this wookie along. Especially with his tech-skills, but more-over, his usage of the bowcaster has proven to be handy in numerous occasions.

The wookieand I walk into the cargo hold and saw a deactivated droid standing in one side of the room. The wookierushed up to the droid and started doing things which I couldn’t comprehend. I approached just as the droid got animated and started to speak. After telling it that I am its real master, he asked about the location of Captain Vox, as he is its assigned master. We left the droid to find its own way to Vox, and returned to the cockpit.

Master Ooroo explained the plan as we exited hyperspace. Vox has asked me before, and my opinion hasn’t changed; this ‘peaceful solution’ to the Unification Wars that they so rely on is a plan that would lead us to our deaths. It’s not as if the previous mission hasn’t given us a taste of it already. We are dealing with an opponent that would stop at nothing to reach its goals. And now we go to the home of our enemy, and we expect to walk in and out just like that.

The Padawan tried to find information about the planet, and found enough to give us a rough idea. I approached him and offered my help, which he gladly utilised. I was able to find a bit more information, but nothing too significant. For me, anyway.

We landed on the planet of Ronnika; we were to come with Master Ooroo, while Vox set off to handle some personal business of his. We headed off to Baal’s manor where he welcomed us in a very big hall. It was surreal seeing him now in this situation, whereas the last time we met we were trying to kill each other. He offered us to sit, but I ignored his offer, standing next to the door way. My life before my involvement with this campaign has given me a sense of pride and strength of character. To accept Baal’s hospitality would show that I acknowledge his power, and that I answer to his will. I’d like to believe that I answer to nobody, no one at all.

It seemed like the negotiations weren’t going in our favour. Our presence surely didn’t have any positive effect, and after a while, we were asked to leave and look for Vox.

The wookie and I chose to go to the cantina, but the young Jedi asked me to help him. He was interested in the crystals being mined in this planet. I kept a note of his request as I headed off to the cantina.

As we arrived, I scanned the room for another Twi’lek. There was none but I’ve heard some miners talk about a Twi’lek merchant who sells special crystals in the form of jewellery. I informed the Padawan through the com-link, and as we were about to leave, I couldn’t help but notice the wookie being wary, as if looking for something, or someone. I asked him if there’s something wrong, but he just said to keep on going.

We went to the merchant and I let the Padawan do whatever it was he wanted to do. He was interested in the crystals, but the merchant was wise. I intruded their conversation and spoke to the merchant in Ryl. I told him that we were not interested in money, but if he gave us the location of the mines, we will give him a fresh batch of crystals for a small fee. He agreed.
I could’ve inquired about Cortosis, but the thought never occured to me at the time.

Completely disregarding Master Ooroo’s orders, we hired a 5-man speeder and did the trip to the mines. It took us half the day to get there, and it was already dark when we stumbled upon a hole on the ground. It stretched for no less than 15 metres. The Padawan took out his liquid rope dispenser and we used it to descend into the caverns. The wookie, confident of his natural ability, decided to climb down the rocks without any aides. He fell and was slightly injured, which he shrugged off as we kept on going. We arrived in a spacious area with different tunnel networks leading in to unknown locations.

As we stood there, silently admiring the glowing crystals that illuminated the cave, we heard voices. The Gungan advanced into one of the tunnels to inspect the source, as the rest of us waited back. I had no idea what had happened but the next thing I know, the Gungan was running as quietly as he could, back towards us. Instinctively, I drew out my vibroblade and hid behind a rock, closest to the tunnel that the Gungan was running from. I saw the Padawan do the same in an adjacent rock. I started hearing heavy footsteps, and before anyone else was even aware of it, I could already see 2 giant figures, wielding pole-axes, making their way towards us. I drew out my blaster pistol with my other hand and fired at one of them. I managed to hit it square in the chest, but it just continued to march forward.

We battled with the 2 beasts when a third one emerged. Except this one was not as gigantic as the other 2, although he seemed just as powerful, if not more. Eventually we managed to finish the battle. We checked the 3 slain bodies, but all they had were their weapons and a pendant with strange symbols on it.

We chose to advance in towards the tunnel where the 3 beasts came from. We saw a brightly-lit room. There were 3 waterfalls that produce a stream leading towards the middle of the room, where a large crystal is placed. Surrounding the room were smaller crystals which produced such emanating light. There were 4 of the creatures hacking at the crystals with their pole-axes, mining them. Not wanting another battle to take place, I took my robe off (including the holsters holding my weapons) and advanced towards the creatures. Having no idea what these creatures were, I chose to speak in Ryl, which was only returned with a loud roar as one of the creatures rushed towards me. I ran to the side of the room and shouted for the Gungan to bring me my weapons.

In the middle of battle, a woman wielding 2 swords emerged from one of the other tunnels. She was a Sith, we were all aware of it. But she spoke to the Padawan, and that was when we learned that she was his long-lost sister. As we continued to battle with the creatures, the Padawan talked with the Sith, telling her that “it is not too late”. She fought along-side the creatures, which made the battle shift greatly to their favour. Finding a window of opportunity, she ran towards the crystal in the middle of the room and struck it with her sword. Suddenly, the water itself was glowing and a ghostly figure appeared beside her. The Sith and the Padawan seemed to hear words coming from the translucent figure, but I could only hear the noise of battle. I rushed towards the Sith from across the room, and upon making contact with the glowing water, I felt my wounds heal, and a strong burning passion grew within me. The other creature tried to chase me, but when it touched the glowing water, it seemed to get the opposite effect, and I could see its skin start to burn.

I turned back towards the Sith, just as she reaches out with her hand. I remember being thrown away towards the wall of the cave with an invisible force. The next thing I know, the medical droid was attending to me, the battle was over, and the Sith was nowhere to be found.

The ghost wasn’t in the room either. We took 3 bags of the crystals and started leaving the cave. I really wanted to take a sample of the water, but I had no flask or any container to collect it with. We resurfaced out of the cave and realised how much time has passed since Master Ooroo has sent us off to find Vox. Not feeling like having any need to sleep, I volunteered to drive the speeder as my companions rested for the evening. We gave the merchant half of the crystals and he paid us enough credits to stock up on a huge supply of med-packs.

Being the obvious mediator of our party, it was clear that most of the time the group looks at me as a leader. It’s most likely due to my history of leadership back in Ryloth, but I found that I have a very strong influence to our group’s fate. I’m not completely sure about his perception, however; as on our previous battle, seeing everyone knocked unconscious, I commanded the wookie to fall back, which he completely ignored as he continued to blatantly fire his bowcaster to the enemies. Besides, with these missions, I’m quite sure that the designated leader is the young Padawan.

The wookie and I went to a local night club as the rest went to look for a place to rest. A few hours later, we decided to go to the docks to try to look for Vox. We arrived at a horrifying scene. The Red Nova has been destroyed into a thousand pieces! The maintenance crew, not sure of what to do with what’s rest of the ship showed us a camera footage of the last few moments before our ship was destroyed. We see 4 thugs that none of us recognised, until one of them walked straight towards the camera and said “Your debt with The Exchange has been paid”.

Not knowing what to do next, we decided to go to Baal’s manor to inform Master Ooroo about the ship. We were greeted with 2 guards who told us that Master Ooroo is to be executed for murder. The Padawan tried his best to get us in to see Baal, but to no avail. I advanced from the back of the party and told the guards that I have a personal business with their master. One of the guards went in and a few minutes later informed us that Baal has been waiting for us.
Sharing a look of uncertainty, we all entered the manor as the guards lead us into the main hall.
We see Baal pointing a blaster pistol against the head of a tightly bound and gagged Vox; who he shot in the leg.

He said of being rewarded with some greater power, and as he asked us to sit, he touched a gold pendant with his hand as he reached out with the other. I saw him pointing his arm towards the wookie, but I could sense something disturbing the Padawan. I am not sure of what had conspired, but the next thing I know, Baal was rolling on the floor screaming in pain. I also saw 4 of the cave creatures come from behind Baal.

Thinking quickly, I went under the table and crawled across towards Vox, freed him and offered him my pistol. I heard the doors open, and I saw a few more of the creatures come in, along with the Sith lady from earlier. As I crawled out of the table I drew out my vibroblade, but was quickly knocked unconscious by one of the creatures who had snuck up next to me.

The next thing I know, I was awoken by the sound of the Empress’ voice. The medical droid attended to me and I look around to see all the creatures dead, along with Baal, the Sith and one of the guards. Vox and the Padawan started telling the Empress what had happened, but before I could process their story, I fell unconscious once again.

Welcome to your Adventure Log!
A blog for your campaign

Every campaign gets an Adventure Log, a blog for your adventures!

While the wiki is great for organizing your campaign world, it’s not the best way to chronicle your adventures. For that purpose, you need a blog!

The Adventure Log will allow you to chronologically order the happenings of your campaign. It serves as the record of what has passed. After each gaming session, come to the Adventure Log and write up what happened. In time, it will grow into a great story!

Best of all, each Adventure Log post is also a wiki page! You can link back and forth with your wiki, characters, and so forth as you wish.

One final tip: Before you jump in and try to write up the entire history for your campaign, take a deep breath. Rather than spending days writing and getting exhausted, I would suggest writing a quick “Story So Far” with only a summary. Then, get back to gaming! Grow your Adventure Log over time, rather than all at once.
