Death From Below

The One Where They Gamble
Session 11C

Boss, sensing impending doom, casually tells K’Lee that they are leaving. They coolly walk to the nearest escape pod with squeaker in tow. They land safely in a valley, and decide to try and find some semblance of civilization. After a long hike they realize that they’re not on a desolate planet at all, as the valley opens up to a large city. K’lee breathes a sigh of relief, and Boss grins happily.

They decide to try their hand at some gambling while they’re waiting for a signal from their friends. But just before they head into a casino they see a Mandalorian exiting the valley behind them. They try their luck at a few tables, not staying in one place for too long. During a particularly good run at a saabac table, Boss decides to cheat a few hands here and there to increase his odds. K’lee notices the The Mandalorian that was following them enter the casino with a couple of soldiers and she decides to try and lead them away while Boss makes a few more credits.

Just as a Weequay catches Boss cheating and accuses him, the Mandalorian puts his arm on Boss’ shoulder and says “I have a much more important quarrel with this gentleman.” The Weequay, and the Mandalorian start to argue and Boss sneaks out in the confusion. He exits the casino, catches up with K’Lee, and in the street they notice they are both in the path of an out-of-control a speeder bike.

The One Where The Woman Run and Hide
Session 11B

After hearing one escape pod launch, Pipes grabs Luna on her way to the remaining pod and tells her that they are leaving while they still can. Luna begs Pipes to take her droid with them, so they all cram into the pod.
The pod lands near the edge of a forest and they see that they have been followed by one of the Mandalorian gunships. The girls hide in the forest and when the Mandalorians start searching, they attempt to quietly follow them.

While hiding in the forest, Luna wonders if there are any muffins in her utility belt, also they see that the Mandos are looking through a village, likely hoping to find them. Then the girls suddenly realize there’s something behind them they turn to see a Mantellian Savrip Savrip. He ask them what their intentions are in his family’s village. After Pipes convinces him that they are not with the Mandalorians, they agree to work together to get rid of the soldiers. The girls run and hide in the underbrush and trees while the Mantellian Savrips stealthily pick off the soldiers one at a time.

Eventually the two Mandalorians that appear to be in charge decide on a tactical retreat and leave. After the Mandalorians flee, Pipes and Luna or have their wounds tended to. They are also given an old broken-down speeder bike and pointed to in the direction of the nearest town. Luna can’t fix the speeder so it is stuck on it slowest speed. As the sun starts to set, Pipes gets impatient and kicks the side of the speeder, and it immediately speeds up. The enter the city at top speed when they realize that the brakes aren’t working either and are about to crash in two pedestrians.

The One Where The Bounty Hunters Fight Death Watch
session 11A

As Geronimo exits hyperspace (after Luna’s accidental jump) they emerge near an unfamiar planet. Three Mandalorian gunships quickly appear and pursue. Gandal suspects they were being tracked and his suspicion is confirmed when he finds a tracking device on Tory. The gunships immediately start firing, battering the hull and straining its systems, but not enough to destroy the ship. Boss, K’Lee, Luna and Pipes don’t want to risk it though, and head to the escape pods. As soon as the escape pods launch, Mom sees two of the gunships peel off to follow them. Half of her is glad for the distraction, but the other half hopes they will be alright. Mom decides to they would be safer planetside and takes Geronimo down. She finds a lake in a Forrest they can hide in. And Fezzik provides cover fire giving them time to hide. She plunges into the lake, and the gunship passes over them, landing some distance away. The three take a moment to figure out what to do next.

Mom decides they should leave the ship hidden, and Fezzik figures their chances are better fighting man to man anyway, so they head out on foot. Gandal shifts to look like Tory, hoping that will buy them some time. They don’t know which way to go, and just head into the forest with the real Tory in tow. When they reach the edge of the forest two Mandalorians catch up to them, and Soram lands just outside the forest.

After a tough battle where Mom goes down, Fezzik gets trapped in a stun whip, one Mando goes down and his flamethrower explodes, starting a fire, but Soram flees when the realizes he can’t tell who is the real Tory.
The group then continues out of the forest, over a mountain, where they see a large city. They decide to go, regroup and try to find their friends. Which doesn’t take long at all, they just head directly for where trouble is brewing.

The One Where They Meet Bwox the Hutt
Session 10

Bwox Introduces himself and says they should talk about how they intend to repay their debt. When they inevitably ask “what debt?”, Bwox casually points to a nearby protocol droid. The Droid matter-of-factly list the following:

  1. Two dug pickpockets murdered that owed a debt to Bwox, that debt is now transfered to you
  2. One severely damaged warehouse building.
  3. One damaged assault Droid prototype
  4. Two load lifter droids: One broken, One missing.

Bwox makes another hand gesture and the crowd of bodyguards and thugs around him disburse. He approaches the group and after visually appraising their clothing, gear and ship, he says “I believe it is safe to assume that you lack the funding to reimburse me, no matter, as I am more interested in information than money. So, you will gather some information I need to settle your debt.”
Gandal asks how much the Doug’s owed him, and Bwox just rolls his eyes and says “Well, since you murdered the only other people that could confirm that information, I guess you will owe what I say you owe”
Boss wants to get this over with and says and much, so Bwox motions for his droid to come explain the job. The droid says a man named Tory has the info his master wants, and the Dugs were tracking him down.
The group finds the last Dug and he begrudgingly tells them they’ll need to head to Coruscant and talk to a Besalisk names Mak.

They get to Mak’s house in the lower levels of Coruscant, and after some confusion and some stun blast he eventually gives them the information they need but also lets them know that this is some sort of stalling tactic by the Dug (who could have easily given them the information). By now the bounty hunter Soram Rot has had plenty of time to get back home safely to the planet Mandalore and hide.

- INTERMISSION -
(AKA real world lunch break)

When they return to the ship they hear singing and squeaker howling along and Pipes remembers that they still have a captive on their ship. Luna and Kaylee go to talk to the Gran they captured and ask why he was following them. He says he can’t tell or his employer will kill him. Boss quips “So will the cold vacuum of space.” K’lee talks him into giving up the info, but as soon as he says the name Lyssk, his coat starts beeping. Luna tries to take the coat off but is unsuccessful and her arms get caught when a glop grenade explodes. The foam also envelops the Grans head, and while Luna is able to break free Gran suffocates and can’t get them any more info about anything from him. They ditch the body, and head for the planet Mandalore.

They arrive at Mandalore and realizing they need a specific type of information head to the seediest bar in town. They learn they can get in touch with Soram, by pretending they want to hire him. The group gets taken to junkyard to meet the Bounty hunter. An armored woman appears asking what job they need done, and slowly other armored figures start to appear. They tell her they want Tory, but Soram appears and tells them they won’t be giving over Tory, he isn’t a bounty, he is their Brother. Then Soram looks intently at Gandal, he tell Tory that he can repay the favor, and finish a job Soram should have completed a long time ago, and kill the Clawdite. Soram leaves before the ensuing battle breaks out. When the tide turns against the hunters and Tory is captured by our heroes, the remaining hunters flee. They quickly get to their ship in a speeder Luna borrows. They leave the spaceport and are pursued by gunships. Luna calculates a hyperspace jump, and they leave the planet Mandalore behind

They One Where Luna Finds a Droid
Session 9

While the group is spending their hard earned credits on upgrading their weapons and gear, Luna notices a Gran in the distance watching them. Mom goes to confront the guy, and he takes off through the crowd, with Mom and most of the team following. She is able to get ahead of him, but just as she confronts him, two Dugs use the opportunity as a distraction to pickpocket Boss and Gandal.
Pipes and Gandal chase one, Boss sends Fezzik after the other. Mom presses the Gran for info, but before he tells who paid him to follow them, a stun grenade hits him in the chest, knocking him out, and dazing Mom, Boss, and Luna.
Fezzik chases his assailant, and while he doesn’t catch him, he does see him go into an old warehouse. He messages the team and the come to back him up.
Meanwhile, Pipes and and Gandal have caught their thief, and just as they get his gear back, another dug appears and attempts to take Pipes’ backpack. K’lee shows up and shoots him, killing him instantly.
Back at the factory, Luna, Mom (carrying the Gran), Boss and Fezzik enter the building to find it’s an abandoned factory.
Fezzik sees the dug at the top of the stairs and starts to chase after him, but then the Dug says “Catch me or save your friends?” He presses a button and two large bulk load droids activate, and prepare to attack.

Thinking quickly, Fezzik throws his vibrosword at the dug, impaling him, causing him to drop the remote, deactivating the droids.
Luna reprograms one to follow her before another Dug shows up and reactivates the other droid before escaping. Mom, picks up Luna and tosses her on top of the rampaging droid, and the droid tosses her out of the building in return. Luna is able to reprogram the second droid, but then another larger, feline looking, droid appears at the top of the stairs.


It quickly bounds down the stairs, knocking over Fezzik, and destroying one of the load droids. The group decides to get out while the can, but not before Fezzik grabs the Gran, and Boss grabs his credits back (plus a few extra for his trouble).
They get back to their ship to rest and regroup (Pipes makes some armor with her old massif hide, and K’lee trains Squeaker to bite on command). They decide that now would be a good time to leave Toydaria. Unfortunately they get a message from the spaceport telling them they aren’t clear to leave, but if they come to the office, it can be explained.
When the group leaves their docking bay, they are greeted by a Hutt surrounded by an assortment of thugs and bodyguards. He says, “Good evening, my name is Bwox, let us discuss how you are going to repay the debt you owe me.”

The One Where A Bounty Hunts Them
session 8

As the group finishes spending their pay, the get a call from Seng, letting them know that he knows a guy at the spaceport, that says the twins have temporarily closed stopped outgoing traffic while they sort out the city’s pirate problems,and dispose of the acklay. Also explains they work for Zsinj. His top agents actually. Seng says he knows a guy that has a job for them. If they want to make money/kill some time. The hunters in the group decide to check the bounty board instead. They see 3 targets rumored to be on planet. Wookie, trooper X, mutate. They decide on the biggest payout & head to the swamps to hunt the mutate. Pipes finds some tracks and realizes they are looking for a mantilian savrip. Gandal climbs to get a better viewpoint and comes face to face with the beast.

Gandal fires off a stun shot, since the bounty says the target is to be taken alive, and immediately realizes the beast has been modified to reflect stun damage. The team carefully wears the mutate down until it falls. They load it up into the speeder truck, and take it to back to town to collect their payment.

The One Where They Rob a Train
session 7

As the crew regroups inside Geronimo trying to figure out what they are going to do next, they get a knock at the door from Seng.
He says he’s very impressed with them, noting that never before have so few done so much damage with so few resources. He laughs and says that they are his kind of people, and that based on their (admittedly brief) track record, he has a job that should be right up their alley: Stealing some cargo back from the Empire. If they they want the job, meet them at Randy’s workshop tonight
They gear up and meet at Randy’s shop and Seng gives them the details: Ever since their antics with the Star Destroyer they borrowed, the Empire isn’t illegally taking prisoners off-planet to be hunted anymore, but now they’re being packed onto a train and taken to who knows where? He wants the crew to rescue as many people as they can from a train that is leaving tonight. Randy will loan them an airspeeder, since they need to be as discreet as possible.


Although it takes them a while to board the train from the speeder, they are eventually successful. They stun any opposition they find, rescue the prisoners, and liberate some cargo (guns and stuffed animals) before they leave.
They return and Seng pays them what he owes them for the job. When they get back to Geronimo K’lee tosses one of the teddy bears to Squeaker to play with, and as he happily rips it to shreds they learn that the toys are all filled with spice.

The One Where They Fight Pirates . . . Again
Session 6

Our session picks up on Tatooine with the crew heading out of a sandstorm and into Geronimo with their clutch of massiff cubs in tow. They jump back to Toydaria to meet K’lee’s associates and hand over the goods. When they arrive at the spaceport, George and Lucas and several thugs are waiting. Before K’lee (or any of the crew) can talk, the thugs round up l the cubs. Lucas stops just before they leave and hands K’lee a small pup and a credit chip, and says “This one’s too small to be of use, and remember, you never saw us here.” (K’lee dubs the runt ‘Squeeker’)

While trying to decide what to do next, Boss lets them know that he has an orb he acquired right before they all met on the Pride of Ryloth and he doesn’t know what it does. Luna decides to tinker with it and while she discovers that it’s some sort of tiny Droid, it also shoots out a beam of light. They immediately hear voices on Geronimo’s comm unit talking about the light, the orb, and the spaceport.

Before they can decide what to do, the Gungan pirates attack and pandemonium ensues. Gandolfini is able to shapeshift and bluff them for a while until one of their allies shows up, a Karkarodon named Brock, and backing up Brock is an akclay.

As the battle ensues, they hold their own against the pirates, but Brock is tough, and they realize that they can’t do any damage to the acklay, even with Fezzik’s cowboy antics. Ultimately the fight is decided when the Empire arrives decimating the acklay and arresting the pirates. This crew sees two Imperial officers among the troopers and one of them pulls out a loudspeaker and addresses the crowd:
THIS is exactly why you need the Empire to bring peace to your planet! Pirates, smugglers, hooligans, and whatever that is (pointing to the acklay). We WILL bring law and order to Toydaria, and to the engire galaxy. "
Then the other officer comes over so he can tell them “We don’t have time to deal with you right now but, rest assured, we will be keeping an eye on you”
The crew decides that they need to get some funds, some guns, and get off of Toydaria.

The One Where They Find a Massiff
Session 5

The crew rest on their ship while they try to figure out what their next move will be. It turns out that is decided for them, because when they try to leave the Spaceport two large thugs named Lucas and George stop K’lee and want to talk. Turns out they work for her dad and in exchange for not turning her in to him, they want her to do a job for them (why risk their necks after all?) Her dad wants a couple of massiffs to raise and train as personal bodyguards, and she and her new found friends are going to get them.

The group looks into their options and decides to head to Tatooine to find the beasts. They land in a local town and start their search. They see a shop owner that has couple of them chained up outside of this store but he says, rather adamantly, that they are not for sale. K’lee is able to charm him into telling her where they can find some. He says there’s a breeder in Mos Espa or they could just head out into the desert and hope for the best. The crew decides that since they don’t actually have any money, the desert is their best bet. Pipes is able to find some fresh tracks and follow them to a cave. They wait until sunset and after a large pack of the massiffs ┬áleave the cave to go out for their nightly hunt, half the group enters (Mom, Fezzik, Gandalfini, and Pipes) while the rest stand guard outside.

Inside the cave they find a few large females protecting their clutch of cubs. After stunning one of them and Fezzik killing one that stays attached to his leg with a death grip they are able to grab a few of the Cubs and leave.

The One Where Geronimo Gets Attacked
Session 4

The group leave Rodia with Seng in tow and tends to their wounds. They exit hyperspace back at Toydaria and head down to the spaceport.

They immediately notice that there is an increased Imperial presence in the spaceport, and around the town as they head to Randy’s shop. As promised, he sets them up with the new clean transponder code (changing the name from ‘Colo’ to ‘Geronimo’). As for the funds they owe, they ask if he will accept him some Imperial blasters they creatively acquired instead of the credits. Randy isn’t happy about it, but accepts, provided they discreetly bring the blasters to him. He doesn’t want to be seen walking around town with a bunch of stolen weapons, not with all these stormtroopers buzzing about. He tells them about the rumors that a star destroyer that left without its commander, and a shuttle went missing, and that’s the reason for the increased Imperial presence.
They head back for the weapons, Gandalfini & K’lee put on sets of trooper armor tey took from the shuttle, while Boss suits up in an officer uniform. The ruse works well, and nobody looks twice as they head out carrying several blasters.
When they return to the spaceport, in addition to the troopers, they notice some of the Gungan pirates they previously encountered. Boss, still posing as an Imperial officer quickly tells the nearest stormtrooper squad that the Gungans are responsible for the missing shuttle. The they sneak back onto their ship in the ensuing confusion.

As soon as they leave the spaceport, they notice a crate that wan’t there before. I holomessage appears: A female Kaminoan says “If you are seeing this, en those stupid Gungans have failed me. Of course, I have a back up plan. I always avea back up plan.” As the message ends, thousands of small insects swarm from the crate and immediately start chewing on any metal part of the ship they can attach to. Dot determines that the bugs are a form of raen sovra, and alerts the crew that they are feeding on electricity. They decide to land the ship and power down. Mom is able to roughly land the ship, but it has taken a beating from the insects. Luna makes a device to lure them away into the swamps, and they take their crippled ship back to the spaceport to decide on their next move.
