A Sliver of Hope (Episode 2)

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.

A WEG’s Star Wars RPG tale

Cast of Characters:
Dargie Forryl, Jedi Apprentice (Darryl)
Tempe Synn, Cyborged Pirate (NPC)

Execute Order 66.

With these words a shock wave occurred throughout the galaxy as clone troopers turned on the Jedi and systemically and methodically slain them. This order sealed the doom of the Jedi and reaffirmed the Sith had taken it’s place once again in the galaxy.

Jedi Knight Iso Shen and his apprentice, Dargie Forryl, are part of a squad that is out in the remote jungle world when the order came. The Stormtroopers they were leading had turned on the. Iso Shen had been killed in the process but not taken out more than half of their squad. Dargie battles as well and then manages to kill three more of them before he takes a blaster shot to the head and tumbles off a cliff and into the raging river below.

Dargie awakes along the banks of the river, his head hurts like the dickens. He hears some Stormtroopers approaching since they are searching the area making sure that the Jedi who fell had perished. Dargie proceeds to move into the jungle.  Six Stormtroopers are looking for a body, three on either side of the river and a scout in a ship over head keeping an eye in the sky.

Dargie doesn’t understand what happened but he is putting the pieces of the puzzle together, first they were following orders and good friends and suddenly a switch had been turned and the Stormtroppers had turned on them.  He hides in blends in to his surroundings as two Stormtroopers walk past, the third one stops and inspects the ground and that when Dargie strikes.  Since he has the surprise on the Stormtrooper, Dargie takes him down with one thrust from his light sabre.

The fallen Stormtroopers’ helmet crackles with static the others wanting him to check in, which Dargie then moves off into the surroundings. He moves along and he comes upon a clearing with a small ship had landed and a woman is checking over her ship. Dargie steps from the treeline with his hands up motion, she spins around with blaster in hand and ready to shoot.

“Easy their partner,” she warns. “One step closer and I’ll blast a hole in ya.”
“If you do,” Dargie warns. “You’ll alert the Stormtroopers that are after me.”

And with these words a bond had formed between Tempe Synn, a cyborged pirate, and Dargie Forryl. Well, the friendship wasn’t immediate since Tempe was cautious and she heard that the Jedi along with Stormtroopers were in “cahoots”. But, that changes drastically when blaster fire from the woods and two Stormtroopers come running out with blasters singing their song of combat.

Tempe returns fire taking one down, while Dargie deflects and then force push the other Stormtrooper into a bog. Tempe then runs into her ship and begins firing it up, while Dargie glances around and seeing three more Stormtroopers approach. He enters the craft and warns Tempe. She takes off as blasters mark up her ship and she curses, hitting a few switches and firing off some guns in return.

The Majestic Mule takes to the skies and heading straight out of orbit. Tempe tells Dargie to fire off a few shots if they are being pursued. Dargie doesn’t know how to operate the cannons and she gives him instructions as they dodge blaster fire and maneuver through the area. Before taking to the sky. Dargie manages to take down a skiff with three Stormtroopers and the Majestic Mule takes a serious hit but manages to make the jump to hyperspace once they break orbit.

She checks the navigation and notices that there is a spaceport close by where she can put down and do repairs to her ship. Dargie and Tempe discuss what’s going on, after a “newsvid” update on the screens about the Jedi deemed enemies of the republic and a bounty is put on the heads of those who have “fled like the cowards they are”. Which boils the blood of Dargie but Tempe tells him to cool his jets and deal with it one day at a time.

They land at Alter Outpost and dock in a bay. Tempe tells Dargie that if he is going to dress in a way that shows everyone that he is a Jedi be prepared to do some fighting. Dargie agrees that he should change the style of dress and changes his outfit, it’s a good thing that Tempe had some men’s clothing in his size. Dargie keeps his lightsabre with him but hidden in his tunic.

Tempe is going about repairing her ship as Dargie explores the outpost some, and notices that a bounty hunter has a body of another Jedi. A young woman in his cart and about to bring it to his ship. Dargie follows him to his bay and notices that it’s quiet and empty and then asks the fellow about his “catch”. The bounty hunter chuckles and says it was easy pickings, youngling didn’t know what hit her.  Which Dargie nods and turns to walk away since he realizes that if he does something it just might alert people to the presence of another Jedi and he doesn’t want that.

He heads back to  the docking bay where the Majestic Mule is and contemplates his next course of action.
