Abridged Outline eventually I’ll turn this into something. The outline is NOW complete . If I’m missing anything please feel free to edit this.
We made our first hyperspace jump but were followed by some type of new TIE Fighter.
Shooter hid SBJ’s spare parts.
I turned the ship about to go head-to-head.
Shooter and Ming manned the turrets and SBJ manned the engineer/copilot station
SBJ attempted to slice into the TIE’s systems but they were well protected but was able to boost the accuracy of shooters targeting instead.
I went vertical and overtook the TIE making an awesome K turn
Shooter took him out with one well placed shot
We made the 2nd jump to Bespin without incident
When we reached orbit we received an encrypted com telling us to go to Port Town and find a Pantoran in Market Row. We had about 2 hours to kill before we would figure out who our contact was so we decided to have a look around.
Not long after, port authority contacted us about docking.
I was able to trick them into thinking I was still a resident and got us a 25% docking fee discount.
We were instructed to land on platform 14A-768 near Port Town
We attempted to lock down the ship and systems extra tight as Port Town is shady
We were greeted by an ugnaught who we suspected was a con artist.
Shooter looked him over and asked for his credentials
The credentials show his name to be Garo but Ming wasn’t convinced and laid down some coercive persuasion. It worked very well and now Garo is our ships personal guard and maintenance tech.
Garo” What a piece of Junk”
Kimje “Shes got it where it counts Kid”
Garo “That’s not what my wife said”
We headed to Market Row on Level 121.
Like a noob, I ask the first guy in the market where the black market is he gets freaked out but I convince him I was joking and was looking for the bathroom.
SBJ attempted to hack into a terminal to try and get into the security feed. Not surprisingly, he got distracted and starts to Smoogle for droid parts stores and finds Hosk’s Droid Parts and Accessories.
Ming grabs another guy and tries to intimated him into telling us where the black market is it doesn’t work either and we are starting to gather prying eyes.
We break it up and decided to find some dancing girls. We hit a place called Fancy Garak’s
As we enter, Ming has his mind set on showing his strength but the bouncer doesn’t take a liking to him. The bouncer tells him to watch his step. Shooter came in and tries to smooth things over but is also told to mind his step.
SBJ finds a terminal and actually hacks into the security cameras in Market Row
He’s able to track down the Pantoran female we are supposed to look for.
We approach her and before we can ask whats going on she tell us she’s being followed and to meet her by a droid access hatch in 10 min as soon as she leaves we notice she’s being tailed.
I play drunk and distract the guys who are following her while Ming brings in extra support “Are you messing with my friend?” they clearly have lost her and give up.
At the access hatch she thanks us for distracting her husband’s men and that her father has a job for us.
Her name is Aris Shen and she bids us to follow her to her father’s apartment.
Shooter knows that she is married to Vorse Tabarith’s, a shady casino financier.
We go to to the apartment on level 50 it’s a upper middle class area with nice apartments we are greeted by Arend Shen (Aris’ father).
He explains to us that he wants to do business with us and that we have been recommended by Lutron. We agree that we are in and he lays down the details.
There is a Jewel called the Jewel of Yavin being auctioned off here in Bespin in 3 days. He wants a bidding war to happen to raise the price then we will steal the credits during transfer. Once that is done, he then wants to steal the jewel itself and sell it for more money.
It’s being auctioned by Marus Grayson and The Jewel is contraband in Imperial Space so Marus is hoping to unload it in the outer rim where the Imperials have less influence. It turns out Shooter is aware of the Corusca gems and he informs us that it’s illegal in Imperial space because it can be used as a lightsaber crystal.
We didn’t rightly ask him why he’s stealing it or for that matter stealing it twice he seems well off as it is perhaps we should investigate this.
There are 7 potential bidders
Kaltho The Hutt
Vorse Tabarith (Aris husband casino owner) Pawn doing it because Aris wants him to.
We have little to no info on these people.
There is no buyer for the gem currently.
The escape plan is to jump on their Yacht the Venture.
The Jewel is being held in the Figg and Associate Art Museum (on Level 22) and is open from 10 am to 6 pm local time.
We have 3 days until the auction.
There is a race Cloud Car Grand Prix and the winner gets invited to the auction gala
Winner of the race gets 30k credits
Arend will pay the entrance fee for the race and has a cloud car we can use
We got fronted 10k for supplies and gear
SBJ says we need a computer Spike and banking encryption sample.
Attempting to be a fake buyer would be exceedingly difficult so it was decided this was not an option.
The spike will cost 300 but SBJ remembers he has a bunch of the parts and gives a list of the rest of it to Ming to go shopping. He was able to negotiate the price and the guy really likes him and his business. Ming seems to have an in with this merchant.
SBJ goes to the museum to look around maps around 1/3 of it finds out there is a service door in the back, one roving guard droid and also discovered each exhibit has sensors on it no visible cameras. There is a section on Zim The Despots work. There are no apparent terminals except for the one at the main desk.
Shooter and I went to check out the Cloud Car.
It’s in a tiny garage. We gave it a good once over and found the exterior seems in decent shape.
I took the time to familiarize myself with the controls
Shooter does the same with the gunners station (We get a boost die during the race for this)
We take it out for a spin and get a feel for it we think of a few mechanics that might help us out (having previously lived here):
Honest Grek’s is spendy but the work is good
An Ugnaught named Pugsly but he doesn’t speak basic maybe we can get Garo to help us out.
We park it and notice other people prepping their cars we go and talk to one of them
We meet Gerrol Hunn and Chara Tull they are in the race as well
Gerrol is a coreilian and notices that I am as well. We start talking shop and he claims he’s the number 1 seed. I ask if he will take me up and show me the course and he gets pushy about why we are asking all these questions
“Are you with media?” he inquired.
I lie and say we are with Cloud 5 news “I hate the media” he tells us “But there is something about me that he just likes (triumph) He shows me the course. I also get a feel that he’s a slightly better pilot than me.
Meanwhile Shooter is hitting on Chara (a very attractive human female) in his attempts he gets on about talking about big game and Chara tells him about the dangerous creatures even on the course. She tells Shooter that a particularly large creature is attracted to the electro magnetic field the cloud cars put out as its very close to the signature of what it likes to eat in the atmosphere.
We meet up in the garage and share our info
I ask SBJ if he can build a device that will boost the electo magnetic signature to attract more of these creatures. In 2 hours hes got a small palm sized device that he says will work…now we just got to get close enough to attach it to Grall’s Cloud car
It’s the early evening of the first day
What still needs to be done
1. Get the banking encryption samples
2. Tour the rest of the museum
3. Start getting backgrounds about the bidders try and work some early magic
4. Get other tools to help is break into the museum
5. Try and figure out the other racers and see what kind of competition im up against
6. Plan the credit heist and the jewel theft
7. Build the computer spike
8. Possibly mod the cloud car
9. Get some practice in
10. Figure out a disguises if needed
11. Talk to Arend about why he’s doing this
