A WEG’s Star Wars RPG tale
Cast of Characters:
Dargie Forryl, Jedi Apprentice (Darryl)
Tempe Synn, Cyborged Pirate (NPC)
Tempe is working on the Majestic Mule as Dargie is going over in his head the options. He knew he should of helped the other Jedi escape but he didn’t want to draw attention to the fact that there was another Jedi in the area. With a bounty on their heads it would mean that every bounty hunting scum would be hot on their tale at every step. It was best to keep a low profile.
A couple of drunks stumble into the bay and look around and realizing it’s not their ship stagger off. Dargie follows them to see where they go and the two drunks go to a eatery, where they are chatting with a huge chunky fellow who one of the drunks display a holographic image of Tempe. The chunky fellow nods his head and exchange some credits to them. Dargie rushes back to the docking bay and informs Tempe that the drunks where actually doing recon work for a chunky fellow.
Tempe swears underneath her breath and states she took a risk landing her, but that matters will be dealt with one way or another. She needs a part for her ship and if she can’t get it shortly, there is going to be trouble. She places a call to a black marketeer nearby and see if he has the part she’s looking for since he’s only a few blocks over she can go and pick it up. Dargie tells her it might be a trap, she replies it’s a trap either way if we can’t get off this rock.
Tempe locks up and secures the Majestic Mule and Dargie and her make their way out of the docking bay and down an avenue. Where two drunks are staggering towards them. Dargie recognizes them as the fellows from before. Tempe puts an arm around Dargie and pulls him close for a kiss, which surprises Dargie and as their lips meet. Tempe fires off a blaster from under her jacket.
And a battle breaks out in the avenue. Tempe firing her blasters and Dargie fighting hand to hand with one of the bounty hunters. And in a matter of mere moments the battle is over and done with and Tempe and Dargie drag the fallen bounty hunters into a narrow alcove and search them. Finding some creds and a couple of weapons, these fellow are then covered with rubbish and Tempe and Dargie move on.
Sarty’s Shop is just down the street and they empty. Sarty is a little fellow with a huge mustache and he is glade to see Tempe. She introduces Dargie as a passenger of her ship. With the creds lifted from the bounty hunters she buys the part and leave the shop.
GM Note: This was a huge role playing section of the adventure with Sarty had chatted with Dargie about this and that. Nothing in particular but it was a pretty fun little chat for 45 minutes of voice acting on my part.
Dargie tells her that he has to rescue the youngling from the other Bounty Hunter, since it’s been eating away inside him. They are close to the docking bay where they are at, and he hopes it hasn’t left yet. Tempe tells him that she is with him on this since he had helped her with her problem.
Dargie leads the way to the other docking bay and the ship is prepped to lift off, Dargie walks onto the platform and the Bounty Hunter sees him and waves him away… that’s when he pulls out his light sabre and force pushes a crate over. The bounty hunter stops his ship and gets out of the craft just as Tempe comes in with a cyber-punch and nearly knocks the bounty hunters head off with a huge hit. The bounty hunter staggers back and into Dargie’s blade. End of encounter.
Tempe drags the bounty hunter into the ship, Dargie searches for the youngling and finds her bound in a crate and frees her. Tempe programs the ship to lift off, and they disembark. Dargie asks her why she’s letting the ship go and as it begins to climb through the air their is an explosion. Dargie had drop two timed charges on the ship. If they believe the youngling to be dead their will be other searches.
The youngling’s name is Bendi Whispa and she thanks them for their intervention. They head back to the Majestic Mule, with the part needed and a new passenger.
