Star Wars Episode 0: The Requel

Session #6: Applemeez

On Tatooine, our heroes have set about investigating the Hutts’ involvement with Separatist weapon designers who created a plague on Mon Calamari and then fled to the Outer Rim. Led by Ban Tomiel, the Blue Ribbon Republic Task Force (composed of four soldiers from Naboo, “voice of annoyance”Doris Eek and triple-agent Darth Vader) decided to send Doris to find a contact and see whether she could get a job smuggling this bio-weapon off-planet.

She found Rodin the Rodian, a system-famous smuggler and criminal who is known to work for Guuda the Hutt. In a dark, shadowy corner, Doris met with Rodin and negotiated a huge payment for smuggling the plague from Tatooine to Naboo. She was watched, but Darth Vader was able to cause enough of a ruckus (“pork rinds!”) that they could escape.

In speaking with Deputy Director of Republic Intelligence Jor Torien, Senator Tomiel was able to discern that the weapon was likely to be armed with an explosive that would detonate if they attempted to transfer it to a Republic vessel, or possibly if they deviated from their course at all. She decided to fly first to Cloud City for refueling and for a chance to transfer “Draz” to their ship. Before they departed, Doris sent a contact, Richard, Tatooine’s Last Private Dick, on one more case before he retires, to investigate not only the criminal workings of Guuda the Hutt but also the criminal mastermind Rodin the Rodian.

In flight, Doctor Peetrov was convinced to begin dismantling the “package” after it was finally delivered, and made some progress without blowing everyone up. Once orbiting Bespin and docked with Cloud City, our heroes transferred “Draz” to their own ship. Too late, they noticed that another mysterious ship had docked with Cloud City as well, only to disappear into the black of space.

A hyperspace jump later they approached Naboo and determined to jettison a life pod with the “package” on it and let it detonate. Doris then attempted to deceive Latooka the Limbs, their Geonosian contact on Naboo. She did not seem convinced. Our heroes docked with a space station orbiting Naboo, and too late realized that another ship had docked there as well. They sent "Draz"’s technical droids to the energy core of the station to destroy the “package” thoroughly, and none too soon, as they were set up on by The Iridonian.

A furious duel ensued between the Iridonian and Darth, “Draz”, Doris and all four of Ban’s security detail. Handily overwhelming all but Darth and Doris, the Iridonian was able to cripple Darth and escape seemingly unscathed. Six security personnel lay dead, but the plague was destroyed by two irrationally suicidal technical droids.

Session #1: Addiction's a Real Bith

Much of my time on Coruscant had so far been spent in a dive with an evasive crowd. The night I made contact with Doris Eek and Senator Ban Tomiel was in that unassuming bar. Jaff Taskley and his men came in, searching for Eek, a rumored people smuggler who helped aliens get off planet. From what I heard, she had some Separatist sympathies too. Exactly the kind of person I was interested in.

Strangely enough, Senator Tomiel was there too. I hadn’t pegged her as the type to frequent this kind of place, really, but I later found out she too took an interest in Eek’s “work.”. Before either of us had a chance to recruit her, however, she escaped. Almost as soon as Taskley and his men showed up. Luckily, I was able to work in a distraction by stealing one of their blasters, and, in their attempt to shake down the place, a fight broke loose and I was able to get away.

In the middle of commandeering Tomiel’s speeder, she caught me, but we agreed that following Eek was in our best interest. We found her at a star port, ready to get off Coruscant. Tomiel had been looking for a pilot and decided this was as good a time as any. Eek, Tomiel, and I escaped just as more Republic law enforcement showed up. (What would they do anyway, if Senator Tomiel had declared Eek her pilot? Wouldn’t put it past Republic bureaucratic scum to arrest Eek anyways and put Tomiel out of a job)

After leaving Coruscant, Tomiel received a message from Senator Palpatine warning us of a supernova that was about to send a gamma ray burst that would singe Alderaan and a numbeo of other planets, including Tatooine. We were headed to Tatooine anyway to lay low, so it was the perfect time to stop by the Republic observatory to check out this supernova and figure out what we could do about it.

We landed and were provided taxi service by an old buddy, Rambo Calrissian, though he asked me to shake down Dr. Peetrov, the guy in charge of the observatory, as a favor. Wanting to honor my debt, I agreed. Little did I know that Peetrov, who we found covered in sweat, spice caked around her his mouth, was a raging drug addict and generally pathetic being. I’m not gonna lie. I felt bad. Took pity. It’s in my nature, I guess. Whatever. I refused to collect the debt, and Calrissian would pay for it later. One less person to terrorize the planet.

After cleaning himself up, Peetrov actually proved to be a pretty decent scientist, and he helped us figure out the nature of the supernova and how to protect people against it — mainly, shield your electronics and get underground or in a cave. We had to get the word out, so we headed back to the ship where Tomiel alerted her people and Eek made contact with some pirate radio people. Then, to communicate to a greater majority of the planet, we had to meet with Guuda the Hutt and convince him to spread the word, since he had a stranglehold on communications on the planet.

It was easy enough for the Twi’lek to make it onto Guuda’s big moving city thing, but I had to sneak on while Eek was working it or whatever she does. Tomiel was eventually able to convince security to let her in.

Finding Guuda was easy — just look for the fat slug — but it took a bit of the Twi’lek working it some more to convince him. Disgusting. But, as Tomiel handed over the data pad, I felt an immense pain in the back of my head. I turned around, and a Trandoshan guard I had outwitted earlier was standing there. He got me really good, on account of my vision being double and the whole hearing my own pulse thing and whatnot. Unfortunately for him, I got him even better, and soon enough the Trandoshan was lying on the floor in three or four pieces. They regenerate, you know. I couldn’t just take out his arm, like Calrissian. And, again, one less person to terrorize the planet.

We quickly made our escape, and Eek and Tomiel got me back to the ship and into the medbay, which patched me up as well as it could. We then went to pick up our scientist, who had run off into the desert jonesing for spice. We ended up finding and meeting a Mon Calamari who had been taking care of the poor guy, and he paid Tomiel for passage on her ship.

Next step, we try and sort out this whole cave business… and, y’know, avoid Guuda’s slimy paws.

I find Tomiel to be interesting, but she’s a politician, so, obviously whatever she says, you gotta take with a grain of salt. I think she’s legitimate. Even so, maybe naive about what the Republic can really do. It’s stretched too thin to take care of the galaxy.

Eek is a wildcard. Even more so than me. Yet she has useful skills, most of which involve her working what she’s got and making fools give her what she wants.

Hey, you gotta do what you gotta do, and I’ve done worse to survive. Maker knows it’s damn near impossible to keep your ideals if you wanna make it in this galaxy. It feels like a while since I’ve been on Tatooine, but I’m starting to remember why I left in the first place.

Welcome to your campaign!
A blog for your campaign

Wondering how to get started? Here are a few tips:

1. Invite your players

Invite them with either their email address or their Obsidian Portal username.

2. Edit your home page

Make a few changes to the home page and give people an idea of what your campaign is about. That will let people know you’re serious and not just playing with the system.

3. Choose a theme

If you want to set a specific mood for your campaign, we have several backgrounds to choose from. Accentuate it by creating a top banner image.

4. Create some NPCs

Characters form the core of every campaign, so take a few minutes to list out the major NPCs in your campaign.

A quick tip: The “+” icon in the top right of every section is how to add a new item, whether it’s a new character or adventure log post, or anything else.

5. Write your first Adventure Log post

The adventure log is where you list the sessions and adventures your party has been on, but for now, we suggest doing a very light “story so far” post. Just give a brief overview of what the party has done up to this point. After each future session, create a new post detailing that night’s adventures.

One final tip: Don’t stress about making your Obsidian Portal campaign look perfect. Instead, just make it work for you and your group. If everyone is having fun, then you’re using Obsidian Portal exactly as it was designed, even if your adventure log isn’t always up to date or your characters don’t all have portrait pictures.

That’s it! The rest is up to your and your players.
