A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…
Rahm Kota’s militia has been routed. The JEDI KNIGHT and Commander himself was killed by DARTH VADER’s secret apprentice.
Absent their commander, some of the militia fled to the planet VANQOR in the wreckage of a CLONE WARS destroyer.
A small group has been dispatched to perform a favor for a quarren businessman named TESSEK in order to secure parts needed to repair their Hyperwave Transceiver and reach their rebel contact FULCRUM.
The story began with the party in Tessek‘s small arms shop as he explained the details of the mission to the party – to transport some goods that were being delivered to Roilia via the Roilia Spaceport. Their task was simply to protect the delivery from the spaceport to a warehouse Tessek had purchased under a false identity – Brisa. He suspected that a local swoop gang may try to steal the shipment and he didn’t want his own men guarding it because he wanted to break into a new market as a surprise and not be linked to him.
He provides the party with a datapad containing his manifest and they are on their way, after Nerfherder picks up a new gun.
The party took a Trast A-A5 Heavy Speeder Truck that Tessek had purchased under the false identity and headed to the spaceport. Here they encountered Tessek’s freighter pilot Clinsee Aco and his partner Rad Paj. Rad was unloading the cargo from their ship, Lucky Shot, while Clinsee was engaged in a conversation Agent Tye Tanoor – an Imperial customs agent. The agent was questioning the manifest, stating that the crate’s weight didn’t match the manifest. Sinek moved up to join the conversation while the rest of the crew remained in the speeder truck. During the conversation, an Inquisitor came and questioned them to see if any had seen Morian Kal – who had a bounty placed on her. Nobody had seen her and so the Inquisitor went on her way. Sinek and Clinsee were finally able to brush off the customs inspector and get the goods onto the truck.
While transporting the goods to the warehouse Sinek caught onto a tail. The party ended up losing the tail, and through clever manipulation ended up on the other side of a trap that had been set for them. Unfortunately one crate of goods spilled and medicine poured out, breaking. When they arrived at the warehouse though, there were a few more thugs waiting outside for them. The party confronted the men and learned they worked for Muraga the Hutt – and that she wanted to know who was bringing in spice. The party bluffed them using the fake name of Brisa, and they went back to report their findings. They contacted Tessek and met up with him at one of his safe houses, explaining the delivery had been completed – aside from the one box which was damaged. They confronted him about the thugs claims there was spice on board and Tessek admitted it was true. Sinek encouraged him to try his best to only sell it to Imperials. Tessek then held up his end of the bargain and provided them information about where they can find a hyperwave transceiver – the imperial communications outpost, some ways north of town. He provided some basic intel on the visible patrols and security outside, and offered to help in anyway he could to help them retrieve one.
The Comm Outpost
The rebels decided the best approach was a stealthy one – disguised as Imperials. They first wanted to get some storm trooper armor to hide Wrath inside, so they went to the spaceport Cantina, Riks Cantina. Here they found some off duty officers and began chatting with them – after a short confrontation with Din-Din Woog and his swoop gang the party had escaped earlier. Long story short, a brawl erupted, the off duty troopers were tricked out back, beaten, executed while unconscious, and then had their uniforms and an ID card stolen. Spacer then utilized one of the uniforms in a disguise – which was accompanied by falsified orders created by Ironpaw – requesting a maintenance droid be taken into the nearby bunkers for work. They took the droid back to the Endurance, transferred BX’s memory core into the droid, and brought him to the barracks. They were able to get the droid in past security but Nerfherder did not go inside, leaving the droid on his own. Nevertheless he made his way to the dorms and convinced a trooper that he needed to do maintenance on his locker. He was able to escape wearing the troopers armor by setting off a fire alarm from a maintenance closet.
Ironpaw updated the orders requesting that the droid be transferred to the communications outpost and then they went and entered through the maintenance level with Ironpaw and Sinek hidden inside a crate of parts. They worked their way through the inside, found a spare transceiver in the maintenance level, and escaped undetected.

BX’s obligation was triggered. They did a fairly good job of hiding him from the empires eyes throughout the game so I was unable to bring it up in game. However, security cameras did see him in the area of Riks Cantina prior to the events that took place there. What exactly happened in the cantina is unclear, but he is considered a person of interest in the event due to being an Imperial fugitive already. Imperial awareness to his presence is increased for the time being.
