The Mission

The Journey to Ord Radama

- Loaning 2 Y-Wings from Resolute Base.

- Other preparations: Commander Qurno wishes them luck and gives them navigation data for a route that’ll shave off about half a day off their 2 day journey to Ord Radama.

- Departing and the treacherous route.

- Running afoul of the Iron Gauntlet’s patrol.

- Talking their way out of the situation, and being given a TIE Hunter/Advanced escort. At which point they recognise the voice on the other end of the comm, Lieutenant Klevic.

Arrival on Ord Radama

- Investigating the contact that Urel Haydon suggested. (Tense bar scene with the local resistance)

- Scouting the Imperial Palace.

- Attempting to infiltrate the restaurant and get info on Narek from the wealthy members.
- Pretending to be the son of Governor Ardus Kaine, plus entourage.
- Tobin and Nerra go gambling. The group eats esgoroth spleen steak, the Dac soup special (a weird orange/red coloured fish flavoured soup), golden Nerf steak and golden flaked oil (both of which literally have gold shavings in them).
- Outside Ghost takes cover in a fountain watching the entrance, whilst Gand is almost entrapped by the local police drug enforcement agency.
- Dex attempts to parley off some Alderaanian wine for info from the officer’s lounge. Unfortunately, when he enters, he encounters Lieutenant Klevic. Although Dex is able to convince Klevic that he’s still an undercover operative for General Kevlan, Klevic still insists that Dex be escorted to the Palace.
- Ghost and Gand prepare to ambush Dex’s escorts, the rest of the group prepares to join in.
- Securing transport (the Imperial speeders, with Gand in the DEA speeder), leading to a chase.
- Nerra gets out very quickly, avoiding police patrols.
- Dex, Ghost, Oz and Tobin run into a roadblock, which they crash into. With Dex unable to immediately get their speeder going again, Oz and Ghost open fire on the 8 local police, killing them.
- The group escapes the police and returns to the spaceport.

- The resistance calls them with more information about Var Narek – his family was killed 6 months ago in a suspicious bombing which the Empire blamed on the Rebel Alliance.

- They decide to leave and attempt to intercept Narek in space.
- Calculating his probable course into the system, they fly to the predicted reversion point, where they find a higher than usual number of TIE Fighters patrolling the local traffic lanes and a Lancer-Class Frigate on station.
- They return to the planet, but fail to avoid detection. The spaceport authority insist they return to the spaceport.
- They fake engine troubles, so the spaceport provides a ‘complimentary’ mechanic service. The mechanic finds a lot of ‘faults’ that aren’t there, and writes up a report grounding the ship until they’re fixed.

- Finally, they get a call from the local resistance saying a battle damaged Jumpmaster 5000 has been spotted entering the atmosphere, it appears to be on course to somewhere west of the capital city. The group assumes that this is the old Narek estate.

Onslaught at Arda I Part 3
Uncharted Territory

The Mission

Retracing the scout patrol.

- Swamp lizard attack + Ghost spots tracks.

- Tracks lead to a clearing with the mound. Battle with the bugs.

- What was in the mound of dirt (impression of a 10cm square box and some wiring).

- Returning the samples to the doctor.

Searching for the Spy.

- Dex being contacted by Haydon.

- Dex’s initial enquiries into the spy/Going to Qurono and angering him enough to place him in the brig,

- The return of the others.

- Investigating Ishthar, Bothan Lieutenant, serene pilot.

- Ishthar’s find and it’s missing nature.

- Rik Torrence approaching Gand, checking out Dex’s reputation.

- Listening in to Quorno and the Bothan (phrased about going from the cargo loading area, through an access panel and to the power generator. There she’ll take down the guards with extreme prejudice if necessary. Then she’ll disable the power generator). The PCs suspicions that this is in relation to Resolute Base, then going to Setenna for confirmation, which she dismisses – it’s to do with an upcoming Rebel operation to Topwara.

- Suspicions of Haydon, then investigating him (he was on the level). He suggests they look for DNA evidence, which they gather from the box (found under the Bothan’s quarters (it contained a transmission log that they decoded, and that it was downloaded by a leutenant)) and the wire materials Ghost had. He just needs them to plug a data jack into the main control room (with dark flashbacks to when Lieutenant Klevic betrayed them). Tobin does this. They get the evidence, the second DNA sample matches Var Nareck.

- Confrontation in the control room, Setenna’s injury. They think they’ve won, but it’s not over yet. A speeder bike/trailer takes off and Dex and Tobin pursue whilst the others launch the Honey Badger.

- Chase of the ship through to space.

- Ship escapes to Hyperspace, but with 3 threat on it’s Astronavigation check.

- They return to base to find that Setenna, the Bothan and Var Nareck are all missing.

- They prepare to launch and go after them to ORD Redana (Var Nareck’s homeworld and the nearest Imperial outpost) at Haydon’s suggestion.

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.
