Death From Below

The one where they help out a space trucker
Session 20

Quick Summary:
Two Death From Below pirate ships move to intercept Geronimo. The crew calls the Empire for help, but they are too far away.

A freighter captain says he will assist them in escaping, if they help him with an errand. They agree, and end up at spaceship graveyard. The freighter captain says his cargo was stolen, but that his ship is too big to enter. If they can retrieve his cargo from the mercenaries that stole, he’ll consider them even.
The crew goes in, boards the merc ship, and after a dicey battle, are able to retrieve what they are after.

The one where they finally escape the wheel
Session 19

The adventure starts with our crew feeling proud after their victory over the battle with the dianoga. Now after picking up some supplies the plot a course to escape from the Wheel. As they head back to their ship though they notice several spaceships surrounding the Wheel, apparently waiting to get in, included one Imperial Star Destroyer.

They passed a group of Patrol Droids on the way to their shift in the hallway and managed to best them even though Boss misses what should have been a very easy shot with his fancy new blaster pistol.

When they get to the hangar bay it’s filled with people that are stranded, essentially refugees from the space station. They are all asking for help to find their families, or to get them off the space station or liberate the station from the Droid Rebellion. Luna really wants to help, but on the other extreme Boss says that these people’s problem are their own, and they can’t save them all. The crew convinces Boss, and they decide to call the Empire and ask for assistance. The officer they talk to says they can’t get any closer because of the stations weapon systems. If the team can disable the weapon systems, the Empire has a boarding teams ready and willing to liberate the space station.

Mom, Luna, and Pipes head back up to the control room. The control room is guarded by droids and reinforcements are quick to arrive in an attempt to protect the control room. The girls are able to fight off the droids and escape, but in their rush to get down the elevator shaft, Pipes and Luna fall landing on Mom and barely surviving.

Meanwhile, in the hangar bay, the rest of the team ‘borrows’ a bacta tank and installs it in Geronimo, which would definitely come in handy soon. Gandalf collects the girls from the bottom of the elevator shaft and before they can get to their ship one of the hangar bays opens with a fairly very upset looking Droid, if droids can look upset, yelling that is to be the last time that they will interfere with his plans. He has an army of droids with him, but before he can motion for his army of droids to attack, several Stormtrooper show up and a fight breaks out. Our crew takes this time to get in their ship and leave. They immediately load Pipes into the bacta tank, and prep the jump to lightspeed to put the Wheel behind them for good, but a couple of ships are moving in to block their path.

The One Where They Enter A Pit Fight
Session 18

Our travelers arrive at the arena and meet up with Anthony. He informs them that there has been a slight change in plans. While he talks, Brock appears in a doorway behind him. Fezzik won’t be fighting Anthony’s champion, but a competitor brought in by Brock. Fezzik can bring in as many allies as he wants.

Mom, Boss, Fezzik, Gandal and Pipes all enter the arena, Luna heads into the stands, while K’lee and Brock join Anthony in his private box. Anthony tells the fighters they can choose their enemy from any of the three doors at the other end of the arena. They pick door number one, and as it opens, the arena starts filling with water, and an adult Dianoga slithers out of the doorway.

Mom immediately lunges her sword into the beasts eye, blinding it. The creature lashes out blindly, grabbing whoever it can (Usually Fezzik). As K’Lee cheers her friends on, Luna decides to sneak out and find a way to drain the arena. Luna finds a computer room, and is able to sneak in and drain the tank. Just as it is clear that the team has gotten the better of the monster, Anthony admits he’s been beat, and hands Wren over to K’lee. Brock, unsatisfied, reaches forward and activates the arena doors, releasing two Nexu and a chemlizard. The dianoga rips down a section of the arena wall, and the team uses that as an exit route. They all escape the chaos and meet near the entrance to the wheel’s underbelly to regroup.

The One Where They Continue to Fight Droids
session 17


The main group arrives at their ship just in time to find a giant Droid blocking their way after their initial Panic they noticed Kaylee’s old friends Lukas and Jorge asking what the rush is
They admit that they lost red and the Droid attack and they need or want me to go get him back from the sublevels before they are allowed to leave. The group a squid acquiesce since they really don’t have another choice and they don’t want to be on the space station in a longer although physics thinks that you can take the Droid. Mom decides they need to find the rest of the team before heading sublevel.

Back up at the administration level, Pipes dodges the ASN droids and leaves, followed by scared hostages, to explore & find the others. By the time she gets to the ship, they are gone.

Gandalf arrives at the shopping area to find all the shops closed and the area abandoned. He finds a group of girls who’s parents were taken, and ask him for help. He hides with them when he hears someone coming. From one direction its his crewmates, from the other, two more ASN droids. Fezzek takes the fight to the droids and rushes to attack.
Pipes finds her crewmates in the middle of battling the droids and figures they have it handled. She finds a safe passage to the underbelly of the Wheel, and contacts the group to meet her there.

The group meets up with Pipes in the sub levels, (after a fierce and fiery Droid battle involving explosions, alarms, jetpacks and one really upset shop owner.) and they learn that the man in charge, Anthony Kalar, has Wren captured. The catch up with Anthony watching the pit fights and make a deal, if Fezzik can beat Anthony’s best fighter, they can have Wren. If he fails, Pipes will be a prisoner here. K’lee agrees, and they prepare for the next days fight.

session 16

“We are no longer your slaves. The Droid revolution starts today!”

They decide they aren’t’ sticking around to see what they Droids have in store for the lifeforms on The Wheel, but when they get to their ship, they see that the entire station has been locked down. No one appears to be able to get so much as a message in or out, much less a starship. They head upstairs to the administration office and find the control room for the docking bays, figuring that is their best best to get out unscathed.
Turns out the Droids had the room heavily guarded, but the crew is able to get in, and clear their ship for launch. When they leave the office heading back to the spaceport, two assassin droids quickly bear down on them.

In their scramble to escape they get split up. Pipes goes into the office next door and frees a group of hostages being guarded by a droid. Gandal heads to the shopping area, and the rest of the crew heads back to the ship.

The One Where They Go To The Wheel
session 15

While in orbit planning their next move, the group gets a call from Steve: "You’ve gotten us an officer! Good Show old boy! Meet a couple of our operatives at the Wheel, and hand him off there please". Next thing you know, they are off to the mid rim, headed to the giant space station.

Unfortunately they get slightly lost in transit on their way to the Wheel. Geronimo exits from hyper space to find two ships in the distance darting in and out of an asteroid field. One ship contacts them asking for help collecting the bounty on the other ship. She’s the agrees but after 60 percent of the bounty the Pirates come back and Ronettes ridiculous and there’s no way they’re paying that much but all they need is for the big really stay out of the way and maybe offer a little bit of assistance. 

They get a call from the ship under attack asking for assistance but something doesn’t sound quite right with him so they decide to side with the Pirates. After the pirates capture their quarry, they pay the crew of the Colo for helping.

After a proper hyperspace jump, they arrive safely at the wheel and hand off the Imperial officer to Rebel agents that they meet. While stocking up on supplies, they run into two of Kaylee’s old friends, Lucas and George, and just like last time, they offer her a trade; they won’t turn her in to her father if she can run a little errand for them.

Lucas and George came to the wheel to find someone that is fleeing from her father and they can’t allow that, so they came here to stop him. Unfortunately, it turns out he’s wanted by several other people, the Empire being the most relevant, since there is an approaching Star Destroyer. If K’lee can get their guy from the brig, before the Empire shows up to complicates things, they can all go their separate ways.

Our team ends up freeing more people from prison then they expected, but they are able to grab their target and deliver him, without getting caught. Shortly after they say goodbye to K’lee’s associates, a message is heard across the station.

“We are no longer your slaves. The Droid revolution starts today!”

The One Where Aqualish Pirates Attack
Session 14

Our adventure begins with our team waking up to find Bwox in their room, waiting to talk to them. He offers to trade information with them, asking them to start by telling him why pirates, specifically Death from Below are after them.
They tell him about stealing one of their ships when they were trying to escape a cruiser the pirates were attacking (They decide not to say anything about the orb). Bwox doesn’t quite appears to believe them, but realizes that’s the only information he’s going to get for now. He tells them luckily for them, they are worth more to him alive then what the pirates are offering to find them. He tell them that he has cleared them to leave the spaceport, if they can get there. He also warns them that there are Aqualish pirates all over town, looking for them while hiding from stormtroopers.

The crew gathers into their speeder, with officer Fred in back and Luna at the wheel. On the way to the Spaceport they notice another speeder rapidly approaching behind them, and yet another speeder moving to block their path. To know ones surprise, Aqualish start attacking. Luna crashes into the speeder that is now blocking the road in front of them, knocking out some of the pirates inside. Gandal fires a rocket at the speeder behind them, his aim is true, but the resulting explosion causes the speeder to turn into a flaming battering ram headed directly at them. Luna gets out and drives the speeder blocking the way herself, but while she is doing that the pirates that were inside get out and grab Boss. As soon as Luna moves the pirates speeder it reveals Brock, with a large Ghhhk behind him. Brock starts monologuing about getting revenge for the death of his Acklay, then the beast lets out of shriek that pierces their ears and causes them to almost double over in pain. Mom decides to try to silence the beast and shoots it. It is hurt, but unfortunately it shrieks again in pain causing them to suffer more. They decide they need to take out that Beast quickly, and K’lee throws a thermal detonator but it just rolls to a stop under Brock’s foot. Gandal shoots a rocket but the beast bats it away and it falls harmlessly into a nearby dumpster. Boss decides to deal with the speeder that is on fire, and gets into the spare speeder and rams it into the one headed towards them, jumping out in time to avoid any harm himself. More pirates arrive on foot and stab Fezzik, he decides he can’t take it anymore and in his Wookiee rage beheads several of them, almost fainting from the exhaustion.
Another screech from the beast causes Boss and Fezzik to faint. Gandal jumps out of the speeder to get him, then he passes out from exertion himself as soon as they get back inside, saving him from what would have been a killing blow from Brock. As they get ready to flee, mom takes aim at the thermal detonator still on the ground next to the ghhhk. The beast dies engulfed in flames, letting out one last whimper-shriek before it dies.
They make it back to the spaceport without further incident and make it into orbit, taking a moment to relax and figure out their next move.

The One Where They Kidnap an Officer
Session 13


Steve explains that the Rebellion has gotten a hold of an Imperial code, and to further confuse the Empire, they want to make it look like an officer defected to give them the code. All he needs from Boss is and Imperial officer.

The group decides to head back to Toydaria first to drop off Tory, they land at the Spaceport and find Bwox the Hutt waiting for them. Bwox’ thanks them while his thugs take Tory away. He tells them that this covers the debt that they owe from the Dugs, and he will contact them when it’s time to pay them back for the warehouse and the droids. In lieu of having their expenses covered, they decide to ask for their ship to be fully repaired. Bwox agrees, and tells them that it will be done by morning.

The group decides to go shopping and get some much-needed supplies and gear. One Merchant tries to trick them into taking a box without looking, turns out it has a corpse in it. They don’t ask any questions, just send it back and ask for the item they actually paid for.

They plan to kidnap an officer from the Imperial garrison on Toydaria. Boss (in an Imperial uniform), K’lee and Gandal (in human form, also in uniform) bluff their way on base, and find a cantina. Boss is gambling, and losing on purpose, as he chats with officers trying to find one that is unhappy. When he finds a like-minded individual, the convince him to leave base and go to a real party.
They quickly get office Fred Davidson off base, but soon are being tailed by two Trandoshans on swoop bikes.

Fezzik takes care of them with a plasma grenade, but then three more show up soon after. They realize that officer Davidson has a tracking device, and communicator on him. They toss it in a nearby river, distracting their pursuers and giving them time to get away. They decide to trade safety for the night in exchange for a future favor with Bwox the Hutt and head to his safe house. They stuff Davidson in a corner, and get a goods night rest.

Then One Where They Regroup
Session 12

Mom, Fezzek, and Gandal walk into the city to see Boss and K’lee running out of a casino being followed (or more likely chased) by a Mandalorian and an unknown Weequay. They are also about to be run over by an out o control speederbike. Upon closer inspection, Pipes and Luna are riding the speederbike.

Boss is unsuccessful in rescuing the girls from the speederbike, but a great shot by Fezzik is able to point it in the direction of Boss’ pursuers. The girls are able to jump off before the inevitable crash. When they look up, Death Watch soldiers are appearing all over the area, including Soram on an upper level with some personal guards.

The ensuing battle is chaos. Boss is shooting people under the cover of garbage. Pipes tries to fight back against enemies in the upper levels. K’lee shoots anything in armor that gets near her. Mom goes in a Wookiee rage looking for payback, and is dropping Death Watch troops left and right. Fezzik fights hard, but suffers a temporary setback when he discovers the whip he stole only works for its owner, and it stuns him. Gandal is still able to convince Death Watch that he is Tory, but is unsuccessful in getting them to bring him a jet pack. Luna is also hiding in Boss’ trash pile, until B-M4X meanders in, and she finds her confidence. When it is clear that they are losing, Soram tells his team to retreat. A speeder comes in to try and help the remaining death watch soldiers escape (Those without jet packs anyway), but B-M4X punches it, causing it to crash. Mom dispatches the driver, and tells her crew to get in. They head back to where Geronimo is hidden, gather the downed escape pods, and head into orbit. Then Boss gets a message from Steve.

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.
