Return to Hoth!

Mission Roster

Predator Squadron are tasked with surveying the remaining Imperial presence in the Hoth system and rescuing any surviving Rebels on the planet.

When they arrived, they found that the Imperial fleet had moved off, there were no ships apparent in orbit. They proceeded to the co-ordinates of Echo Base and began scanning for life-signs.

They detected a metal structure up ahead with a large cluster of life signs – the only ones they have picked up on the planet thus far. When surveying how best to approach this position they were intercepted by an ADZ-Cruiser. The cruiser launched a shuttle that deployed troops.

Firing up their engines for cover from the cruiser, they took out the Snowtroopers and boarded the shuttle. They used the shuttle to board the cruiser. The captain of the cruiser decided to ram the Honey Badger, unfortunately crashing his own ship into the ice in the process.

The boarding team liberated a group of Rebel prisoners – including Mesa, who had been captured during the Battle of Hoth – and proceeded to the bridge. The captain had emptied the armoury in an attempt to secure the bridge, but Gladios Ryk managed to cut power to their turrets and bypass the blast door. There they found the captain holding a thermal detonator. Mesa shot the captain’s hand, releasing the pressure trigger and setting off the thermal detonator. Although Mesa and Travis Shrike were unscathed, Gladios took the full brunt of the blast and was knocked unconscious.

They proceeded to attack the camp – which appeared to be some sort of POW camp – using the Honey Badger and Y-Wings to take out the power generators whilst engaging a Gozanti-class cruiser and accompanying TIE Fighters. This was whilst Nerra and Oz sneaked their way through an underground cavern system to attack the base from “The Pit” – a large hole in the ice where the Empire had dug cells for the prisoners.

Eventually the Angel of Lothal arrived on the scene and deployed it’s complement of X-Wings. The facility signaled its surrender and when they arrived in the control room they found ISB agent Colonel Pellar in command. They took him prisoner and began raiding the facility’s computer systems.

Although the Imperial forces attempted to destroy as much data as possible, Predator Squadron were able to uncover that Mesa was being shipped out of the POW camp on the orders of a Lieutenant Ketsh, a researcher for Project Raptor who had taken great interest in the Chadra-Fan. Predator Squadron also planted false interrogation records to indicate that Rebel bases were located on several planets that there were none on (the hope being that after they’d left, the Empire would sweep in and examine the records).

Predator Squadron returned to the Rebel Fleet, boarding the Redemption to a hero’s welcome. General Rieekan presented the Squad with The Star of Alderaan for their valiant defence of Echo Base and it’s ion cannon, without which many more lives would have been lost during the Battle of Hoth, and for returning to Hoth to rescue the POWs captured there. They also received the Defence of Hoth campaign award, denoting their participation in that battle.

Devaron Escape

  • They’re taking off from the nexus waterfall on Devaron (note to self add a locations page for that). Gand is patching up Galish whilst Travok, Torani and Ghost fly the ship to evade the pursuing TIEs. TH-313 decides for the safety of the ship it is best to restrain and disarm Galish (remembering the incident at the Cato Nemoidia Spaceport).
  • They decide that they cannot simply leave Sandy on Devaron with no ship and no astromech with the potential to be hunted down by an Inquisitor. Besides which he is the only one who knows where the Holocron may be. So they get Gand to do his voodoo and Gand has a vision of Sandy in a deep jungle, away to the north. That being back in the direction of the nexus, where they left the Inquisitor.
  • Sandy comes to a stop in the jungle. Filled with fear he senses the cold presence behind him.Surveying his surroundings, he doesn’t know what to do, he can proceed and keep running, or turn and face his fears. As he’s considering his options, a Voice comes to him; it tells him that he must face the darkness. Sandy returns to the lake front to find a Lambda-Class shuttle there. Examining the scene further, he notices impressions of landing gear in the mud, approximately the size and shape of the HWK-1000. He sneaks his way up to the droids, but gets spotted and detained. He then comes face-to-face with Sirak – the Inquisitor who slew his master.
  • The group go silent running with the Whisperthrust engine to evade Imperial patrols (there’s an APB out for them by this time). They arrive at the nexus to find the Imperial shuttle taking off. Ghost decides to buzz the ship, it fires back futilely. They rush into orbit – Imperial corvettes are manoeuvring to intercept, but they hit the accelerator and punch it to lightspeed before they get into range.
  • They discuss plans on what to do. Ghost analyses star charts to figure out where the planet she saw in her vision was. She eventually narrows it down to the Delris system.

Depths of Delriss

  • The group arrive at Delriss and get a message saying registered craft may travel to the Archive.
  • They follow the co-ordinates and find just ocean – they’ll have to dive. Ghost, Gand and Galish (3G) dived into the water and swam into the depths. It took them two hours of climbing down a cable that they found, but they eventually got there.
  • They explore the facility, finding it partially flooded. They find the library and a bunch of books. They then find a hanger bay (it’s tilted on its side, but otherwise workable) – inside they find an astromech (which they pull Hyperspace co-ordinates for Coruscant, Ossus, Lothal and the Heruset sytems) and a Delta-7 Aethersprite fighter. They repair the fighter within an hour thanks to a triumph from Gand.
  • The facility starts rocking and rolling and they can hear a roaring from outside along with the sound of wrenching metal. They quickly rig up a harness system so Galish and Gand can hold on. They trigger the hanger doors and drop into the ocean. Pushing the engines to their limits, they evade the Kaiju and rocket to the surface, Galish and Gand holding on for dear life.

Galish and Gand’s Grand Spaceport Caper

Galish and Gand, locked in a spaceport hanger with the X-Wing, start planning their escape. This quickly turns into bickering over who’s fault it is that R5-G8 was shot. As this continued Devaron spaceport security finally cut their way in through the door and demanded that they drop their weapons. Galish considered her blaster pistol, but swiftly dropped it.

Travok and Torani, having been informed by comlink that Gand and Galish were in trouble, decided to prepare the ship for a swift evacuation in the event that the spaceport ‘spontaneously’ erupted into violence.

Gand and Galish attempted to talk their way out of the situation, implying that they were private investigators sent to locate the droid and X-Wing. This ruse was successful, but the security guards informed them that they should have followed proper procedure and notified spaceport security rather than breaking into the hanger themselves. As a result, they would have to pay the processing fee for the paperwork.

Ghost and Sandy – Exploring the Force Nexus

Sandy led Ghost into the cave, where the fire was burning and there were nearby rocks where they could sit. Ghost gave Sandy the crystal she procured on Cato Nemoidia. Sandy explained that his master had brought him here in the past to teach him the ways of the Force; Ghost commented that she learnt at a place known as Ice 9. Sandy said he would meditate on it, offering Ghost a drink from a vial of glowing white water-looking liquid, explaining that it was a ritual his master had taught him. Ghost declined, deciding instead to investigate further into the cave.

Further in the cave, was a crack in the wall – inside it was dark, light barely shone. Ghost began walking down the passageway, igniting her lightsabers barely did any good to shift the gloom, it had a heavy oppressive feel.

Ghost eventually came to some stairs, she followed them down hearing the faint dripping of water. She could feel in the dark that the walls no longer surrounded her, that to either side of the stairs there was nothing but air. in the faint light she could barely make out a thin trail of water that snaked down the stairs. Ghost arrived at the end of the staircase where the path split left and right. Noticing that the thin water trail ran down the left path, Ghost proceeded down that way.

At the end of that passageway Ghost felt the chamber open out. In the centre of the room was a glowing white light – a pool of water with a tone pedestal in the centre. The sound of rushing water was incredibly loud in this room. Ghost stepped into the pool to reach the pedestal and examined it – shockingly she recognised some of the symbols from Ice 9.

Ghost proceeded to the back of the room, running her hand along the wall, she eventually found a crack similar to the one upstairs. another passage ran through it, this one leading upwards. After a long climb Ghost saw a pulsing blue light up ahead. She came out into a small chamber with a round tesla-coil-like device in the centre of the room, the walls were made of metal, but it took on a bubble-like texture. The strangest thing was the ceiling – the pulsing blue light came from it – upon closer inspection Ghost realised that it was in fact a force field holding back the water from the lake above. The tesla-coil like device was engraved with symbols, again similar to those Ghost saw on Ice 9.

  • Investigates the dark side room.

Ambush at the Spaceport

  • Ambush at the spaceport by bounty hunters – identified Gand by his cybernetics and wish to acquire him off Galish.
  • Ghost returns to the pool room to find Sandy there. Shows Sandy the place at the back.
  • Sandy investigates the dark side room again himself to retrieve his stuff from last week.

Warde’s Legacy

  • Sirak arrives and the duels.

This week Sandy went on a retreat to Devaron, the crew caught up with him and investigated why he would not give them the holocron.

Travok also dealt with the aftermath of the slavers attacking Cato Nemoidia – he fought his sister and won. Via her overbalancing and falling through the floor… This caused her to pursue the group with a turbolaser…

This week Predator Squadron got sucked into problems when Galish fired her blaster in a crowded spaceport. This was as they attempted to investigate Warde’s past.

As the session ended, Gand, Torani and Galish had been imprisoned by the Duke, Sandy hid the holocron in R5-G8. Ghost was planning to abseil down the side of the city to investigate the palace where Warde was last seen.

  • Gand decided to use his Findsman skills to locate Sandy. Performing the proper rituals, he determined Sandy was to the west.
  • Sandy had joined up with the Quolas army, which was being led by a triumvirate of the respective heirs to the Helshar and Tumris clans along with a Royal Guard captain.
  • The group decided to comm Sandy. Sandy answered and was informed that the base was destroyed. They agreed to meet at the Dag-O-Bar.
  • Sandy explained this to the army. They were grateful for the assistance and determined that their best move would be to return to Quolas and prepare for potential Imperial reprisals.
    • Sandy decided to journey to the capital, Zeilo, and set up a distress beacon from his X-Wing’s communications systems so that the locals could call Predator Squadron for help in the event that the Empire returned. He was granted an escort on this journey of 6 guards – 3 from Tumris, 3 from Helshar.
  • As he journeyed into the forest, he began to notice how quiet it was. This wasn’t like the first journey through the forest. It was so still, the trees had this foreboding lure.
  • After two days, his uneasiness grew. They most certainly should have encountered a nest of Bearsloths by now. He began to suspect that it was quiet because a new, larger predator had moved into the region. He inquired with the guards. They told him of the vicious Dracnor – vicious lizard-like creatures that dwell in the mountainous regions of Arbooine. He was told that in the rare occasions that they come down from the mountains, they consume all in their path; the local Bearsloths tend to go to ground to their queen’s nests until the danger has passed. Sandy did not like the sound of this at all…
    • That night, Sandy awoke to shouting. The Helshar and Tumris guards were fighting. A lone Helshar sat at watch, his throat slit and now the guards were on the verge of violence. He calmed the guards and examined the corpse – he determined that the wound was not from a natural creature: it was too precise, made with a knife and besides, why would a predator leave it’s kill behind? None of them got any sleep for the remainder of that night.
  • At first light they departed, hastening their mounts. Again all was unnervingly quiet within the forest.
    • That night they took watch in shifts of two – one to keep the eye on the other, just in case.
    • Sandy was again awoke by shouting. Blearily he looked around – he could see the two guards on watch silhouetted by the firelight, stabbing something on the ground. A dark shape came roaring out the forest and knocked one down, going straight for it’s throat. The three guards that were supposed to be sleeping were slowly rising and drawing weapons. As he turned to get himself up, a large wolf-like creature burst out of the trees and lunged for Sandy, biting into his shoulder.
    • Sandy recognised these creatures as the wolf-creatures that the Empire used to hunt himself and Gand on Ossus.
    • They fought off this first wave, but as the wolves howled – their howls were answered from the forest. Only 3 guards and R5-G8 left, they rallied around the campfire. More wolves came from the forest, this time joined by a man in yellow armour, he wore no helmet, but had a pair of hunting goggle attached to his eyes. He bore a wrist mounted blaster, which he pointed at them as he demanded their surrender. Sandy refused. The man pointed forward and the wolves charged.
    • This battle was swift, but they lost another guard. R5 showed his pro-shooting skills and got the killing blow against a wolf. With the battle over they decided to leave. Immediately.
  • They rode through the night and into the next day. The forest remained quiet, it felt as if they were being hunted.
    • It was the middle of the day, they had just descended down a long hill, when Sandy caught sight of him for the fist time. Two riders on Tarvixes rode up, each wearing yellow armour. Their leader rode a Nexu-like creature, approximately the size of a Reek. He was clad head-to-toe in a black robe, hood low over his face. There was an eerie coldness about him, a void filled with malice and Sandy knew upon sight that this was the reason for the quietness in the forest.
    • A chase ensured through the trees as the dark rider gained upon them. His mount was faster than their Tarvixes. As they rode, he stretched out his hand, trees and branches began collapsing in their path. The chase continued and they passed a stream and ran into a wild stampede of Tarvixes. Sandy and his companions used their Tarvixes to hide amongst the stampede, moving “down stream” as it were. The dark rider and his companions arrived at a ridge overlooking the stampede, hunched over his mount the dark rider contemplated the situation.
    • As afternoon gave way to early evening, Sandy arrived at Zeilo. Never was he so thankful to enter a city in his life.
  • Sandy set up the distress beacon, said goodbye to his Sathari girlfriend, repainted the X-
    Wing and departed.
  • Around the time of Sandy’s departure from Arbooine, the rest of the group arrived at the Dag-O-Bar. They were greeted by an ABZ-class Destroyer that demanded they stop for customs inspection. Great doors opened on its side and 6 TIE Aggressors launched.
  • The group went along with the inspection, hiding anything outright illegal – The Imperials said this was all necessary because of the increased Rebel activity in the region (they may have heard about the glorious Imperial victory recently nearby at Hoth). With it complete, the officer demanded to speak with the registered captain, a Jacen Briggs… The group were unsuccessful in convincing him that Briggs was unavailable, but a call to the station convinced him that they were regular traders there.
  • With this the ABZ-class Destroyer undocked and resumed it’s patrol route.
  • The group stuck around for a while to make it look convincing that they were traders. Luckily they needed to pick up some supplies. They messaged Sandy informing him that they’d ran into customs. They hoped that he’d have the sense to proceed to Cato Nemoidia, their next destination and meet them there.
  • Arrival at Cato Nemoida…..

In total it has now been 2 weeks from the Reeve being deposed. This makes it 3 weeks since meeting with the Alliance, that was about 5 days after Hoth.

Arbooine Escalation

  • Sandy convinced the immediate royal guards to stand down.
  • A small squad of Imperial troops arrived (searching for the rumoured Rebel base) and the group set about covering up the Reeve’s death.
  • Travok took the Imperials out and began distracting them.
    • Ghost witnessed the arrival of Imperial forces and began shadowing Travok to keep an eye on the situation.
  • Torani began searching for the kyber crystal, finding a console displaying a map of Quolas – it had a hole for a small device with an inlaid tree design.
  • Sandy searched the Reeve’s body and found a small amulet with an orange jewel and an engraved tree pattern.
  • Sandy began rallying the people towards war.
  • Using the amulet in the console they uncovered a list of secret weapons stashes that Marcolf had hidden around the city – he’d clearly been preparing to fight off a siege.
  • Sandy gathered the locals at the Pillar of Ancestors and made a speech – he said that they had thrown off the chains of the false Reeve, the Jedi Marcolf. He said that they now must throw off the chains of Imperial oppression.
    • Travok in the crowd with the Imperial officer noticed that she pulled out her comlink at the phrase “Jedi Marcolf”. Although her stormtroopers attempted to intervene, they got pushed off the walkways into the depths below. She disappeared into the crowd and wasn’t seen again.
  • The Imperial shuttle began taking off. Gand and Torani attempted to stop it. Gand jumped up on it’s wing, but ended up sliding off.
  • The Imperial shuttle destroyed the landing pad at the Reeve’s mansion and flew off.
  • Travok and Sandy arrived in time to witness this. Travok, furious at the turn this was taking (having led another world down this path only for it to end badly) lashed out with his claws. Sandy responded with his lightsaber.
  • Sandy marched into the throne room and destroyed the Reeve’s throne with his lightsaber. He then left, renting a Tarvix and departed the city.
  • The rest of the group retreated to Arbooine’s moon to communicate with the Rebel Alliance and plan further.
  • They determined that they had a moral obligation to help the people of Arbooine by destroying the Imperial garrison on the planet.
  • They reconned the garrison and requested Rebel reinforcements – the Alliance could spare a flight group of fighters (4 Y-Wings to be precise), but it would take them some days to get there.
  • Ghost and Gand infiltrated the facility and began preparing it for demolition.
  • When the Y-Wings arrived the facility’s own turbolasers overloaded and blew up, at which point the facility launched TIE Fighters, which triggered the fuel dump of the facility to overload. Finally the Y-Wings came in and bombarded the garrison into oblivion.

The Gatekeeper's Legacy

Mission Roster

Note: “Team Jenth” in the tag refers to this unit of Predator Squadron. “Team Resh” will refer to the other unit that is currently working closely with the Rebel Alliance.

Departure

  • Before their departure from the Alliance, the group buys an array of gear (link to gear list so people know what’s there and who has claimed what), mostly funded by Cassie’s gambling winnings.
  • Team Jenth departs for Arbooine. Travok tampers with the intercom and discovers the inbuilt music player – a playlist selected by Kaltho the Hutt.

Arbooine Arrival

After a long journey, the group arrives at Arbooine:

As you break through Arbooine’s atmosphere, a dense, impenetrable canopy of green spreads out before you, broken here and there by mountains and massive lakes. The gatekeeper provides you with coordinates for the town of Quolas, but when you arrive, the thick foliage prevents you from visually confirming the settlement’s exact location, let alone landing there. Finally you spot a clearing along the bank of a river, several kilometers from where you believe the town to be.

After a day of walking through the forest amongst the rain, the group comes to rest and make camp near a huge elrit tree. Travok and Gand decide to go hunting, running into trouble with a nest of Bearsloths. Travok uses a signal flare in an attempt to get help from camp, but he miscalculated the trajectory and it started a sizable fire. Luckily this intimidated the Bearsloths into backing off and Travok and Gand made it back to camp with 2 Bearsloth arms for dinner.

The next day, approximately a third of the way into their projected walk, they run into some travellers on the road – the Jiarlo family. Their leader, Kirril, trades with the group for Bearsloth venom. They inform Predator Squadron that they aren’t too far from the town and advise them to be wary of Quolas’s Reeve – he is a suspicious person. They also inform them that they encountered a Togruta named Sandraudiga, who is choice-kin with the Jiarlo family, having saved Kirril’s life. They advise the group to stay with the farmer, Jyl Korlis, a friendly face.

After some expert navigation from Ghost they arrive at Quolas, at approximately midday:

Before you looms an elrit tree of truly gargantuan proportions, dwarfing those around it. Easily three hundred meters across at its base, the trunk rises high into the forest canopy, almost disappearing from sight. This is no mere tree, however, as evident from the many suspended, woven orbs, carved structures and the bridges connecting it to surrounding trees. This is your destination – the city of Quolas.

After entering through the huge iron gates of Quolas, Predator Squadron make their way into the city and find Sandy at the Korlis farm, where he is working in exchange for a place to stay. R5-G8 is also with him, the little droid has had something of a makeover, his metal panels having been replaced with solid elrit wood, painted a deep red and purple and engraved with gold Sathari writings. Sandy seems to have really adapted to the local culture.

(Travok attempts to appraise R5 – he’s gone up in value, 16,000 credits or so now, possibly more if sold as a one-of-a-kind art piece.)

  • Ghost and Torani go to the market where they see a scroll seller being hustled for taxes. They acquire a ‘rebate’ for the scroll seller.
  • Travok and Gand catch up a bit with Sandy.
  • Ghost and Torani come to a Sathari Temple, Sandy and the others are also there; after their work day the Sathari come to give thanks to the Ancestors. On the way they notice that people are going out of their way to avoid guards.
    • They listen to the service and afterwards Sandy talks to the administrator. Sandy has been attempting to seek an audience with Marcolf through the religious leader, the administrator says that he does not have the influence with the Reeve that he once did, but will keep trying.
  • The group witness a play that tells of Marcolf’s arrival and his history with the town.
  • After some gambling with some locals they retire to the barn for the night.

A New Day in Quolas

The next day the group are awoken as R5 makes breakfast for Sandy and Travok. Travok pays the droid for the cost of everyone’s breakfast – R5 appreciates this because it shows that he’s a good business-droid.

On the way to the market that day they pass by the Pillar of Ancestors:

Before you stands an ancient, ornately carved column that extends hundreds of meters into the sky. At the base of the column, a number of guards are attempting to contain a crowd of angry Sathari. As you approach, you overhear shouts from the assembled citizens and see that both sides are growing increasingly agitated. Violence hangs in the air, palpable but not yet realized.

The guards are overseeing the removal of old carvings – the history of the town – and replacing them with tributes to Marcolf and his great deeds. This angers Predator Squadron greatly, inspiring Sandy and Travok to make an impassioned plea to the guards. They rally the crowd and convince the lead guardsmen to get them an audience with Marcolf.

Ghost watches this from a distance, ready to intervene if necessary.

The guard hurries off, right as an arm snatches Travok out of the crowd – he’s pulled aside from a young Sathari named Pathran Helshar who explains that he wishes to remove Marcolf from power, he has a resistance movement. The group is hesitant because his clan are one of the two powerful families and from their understanding, their feud led to Marcolf being installed in the first place.

Pathran departs hurriedly as the guards return – the group has been granted an audience with the Reeve.

Confronting the Reeve

They arrive at the Reeve’s mansion:

_ The Reeve’s manor is by far the largest building in the boughs of the tree-city. Although it was originally a single, massive orb of woven wood, it is clear where Marcolf has added to the original structure with rooms, towers, balconies, and two extra levels. The manor complex is accessible by a single, wide bridge. In the nearby branches sit several adjacent guardhouses, servants quarters, and a private Tarvix stable, all conveniently accessible from the main house. Guards stand at the main entrance and patrol along the walkways of the complex. Marcolf’s dwelling looks prepared for a siege._

Ghost follows from a discrete distance and sets up an overwatch position overlooking the main entrance bridge.

Upon entering the ornately carved entrance hall they are asked to surrender their weapons by the guards. Travok manages to get his sword-cane through and Sandy convinces them that his lightsaber is harmless, but otherwise the group is disarmed.

They are then shown into the throne room:

_ As you enter the great hall of the Reeve’s estate, flanked by guards, a Mirialan waits for you, casually sat on the ornate wooden throne, a fine purple cloak around his shoulders. His dark hair is greying at the temples, and his eyes are sunken, his face creased seemingly before his time. The man observes coldy as he greets you: “Welcome to my home, I am Gel Marcolf, Reeve of Quolas”._

They discuss with the Reeve what they have seen of his town, at first he seems open to what they say, that there must be some changes in approach. However, as the conversation progresses, his tone changes.

They mention that they know of Warde – they have his Holocron. Marcolf responds that Warde abandoned him. Sandy and Travok try to convince him that Warde probably had intentions to come back, but was likely killed with the rest of the Jedi. “Yes,” he replies, “Leaving me the heir to his legacy”. Marcolf then ordered his guards to seize the group so he could acquire the Holocron.

As the guards moved in Sandy rushed straight for Marcolf, clashing with lightsabers – Marcolf’s blue to Sandy’s orange. Travok attempted to prevent the honour guards from intervening, two went for Travok as two went for Sandy.

Gand jet-booted to the main entrance where their weapons were kept, grabbing his rifle he fired upon the nearest guards on stun. Unfortunately he would quickly run out of ammo.

Outside, Ghost lay down covering fire upon the exterior bridge to prevent the guards from getting inside.

In the throne room Sandy disarmed Marcolf of his lightsaber, then of Marcolf’s sword. He used the Force to pull Marcolf’s lightsaber to him – holding them in a scissored manner to Marcolf’s neck. Sandy took a moment to look down upon the Reeve – seeing the fear in Marcolf’s eyes, Sandy declared that he was sentenced to die in the name of the New Jedi Order. Sandy beheaded Marcolf, ending his reign.

As things now stand, Ghost is outside, Gand is facing off against 6 guards in the entrance hall whilst Travok, Torani and Sandy have 4 royal guards in the throne room.

Rewards and Experience

  • 5XP for killing Marcolf.
  • 5XP for stopping the desecration of the Piller of Anscestors.
  • 5XP for investigating Quolas’s history and preventing the guards from abusing their power.
  • Gand gained 4 conflict, rolled 4, so remained at the same Morality.
  • Ghost gained 2 conflict, rolled 5, so gained 3 Morality.
  • Sandy gained 12 conflict, rolled 2, so lost 10 Morality.

Scattered
  • Gand and Tobin crashed on the planet. It had high gravity, was a rocky red arid desert.
  • They encountered a marauding band of scrappers. Tobin used his Ardos disk to ward them off, claiming he was a bounty hunter who laid claim to the vessel.
  • Galish woke up in a cell aboard the Angel of Lothal. Ghost used a bottle of whiskey she had acquired from Cassie to psychologically torture Galish. Ghost wanted to know what happened after Galish was left behind over Ossus. Galish claimed that she did not remember.
  • Ghost took charge of the Angel of Lothal and began search operations for the Alliance fleet.
  • Kay’daq received a distress signal from Gand and Tobin and brought it to Ghost. Ghost told him to take the Honey Badger and some X-Wing escorts and search for them.
  • Kay’daq picked up Gand and Tobin, they got the Dusk Mynock flying again and returned to the Angel of Lothal. Tobin used the Force to probe Galish’s mind. He saw flashes of Galish floating alone in space, the arrival of a Decimator craft, a flash of a malicious Imperial officer, a cold dark cell, then an explosion and a man in a light blue flight suit (that Tobin recognised from security recordings as the leader of the Syndicate attack on the Rebel transport), finally he saw Galish in a cell, Galish associated it with a great cold.
  • The group reunited with Travis and the Rebel Fleet. General Rieekan was based aboard the Mon Calamari cruiser Redemption. He welcomed them back, he was glad to see them alive. Unfortunately he had to inform them that Setenna Hase died on Hoth.
  • The squad decided to take some R&R.
  • Ghost continued interrogating Galish, but learned nothing.
  • Tobin attempted to get information on Warde’s apprentices out of Blisk, but ended up reminding him of troubled times.
  • They eventually scanned Galish and found a brain tumour. They removed it and found a small explosive and a recording device that was attached to the centre of her brain that processed images.
  • They began scanning members of the squad for these tumours, at which point Gand’s programming took over and he attempted to assassinate General Rieekan. They subdued Gand and removed his tumour before it exploded, even salvaging the hard drive. Unfortunately Gand was severely injured during the surgery and had to have a cybernetic implant installed to compensate.
  • Between her time in prison and Ghost’s refusal to allow her near a drop of alcohol, Galish craves alcohol and is struggling to control it.
  • The group are now planning what direction to take next – pursue Sandy to Arbooine, assault imperial facilities or even deal with the Syndicate and Cobra Talonbane after the theft of the T-66 X-Wing prototype.
  • Across the galaxy, Jacen arrived at his destination with Mara Jade. They flew over a black rocky desert that was dotted with stone obelisks. They flew to a huge crater, where huge stone boulders and debris larger than the Honey Badger had been strewn across the landscape. From the edge of the crater Jacen could see that the desert surface formed an outer shell to an underworld below. “Welcome,” Mara said, “to Malachor”. Together they began climbing down beneath the surface.
