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:
- Two dug pickpockets murdered that owed a debt to Bwox, that debt is now transfered to you
- One severely damaged warehouse building.
- One damaged assault Droid prototype
- 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.
(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
