Star Wars: Predators

The Battle of Mon Cala Part Four

Mission Roster

Predator Squadron continued flying against Zsinj’s lines, as Kobfred co-ordinated their efforts with Liberator Wing and the accompanying Hutt forces from the Dawn of Tranquility. They targeted the Star Destroyers command and control systems, causing several collisions in Zsinj’s tightly packed formation.

Moff Ravik retreated from the battle, leaving Zsinj alone to face the New Republic fleet. Given the losses he was starting to take, he also decided to retreat. As the Iron Fist made it’s run for hyperspace Oz sent a transmission introducing himself. As the Super Star Destroyer jumped away he received a transmission back saying an agent of Zsinj would be in touch.

Predator Squadron, part of the first major Imperial assault the New Republic have successfully repelled, returned to the Dawn of Tranquility. Captain Hugo the Hutt invited Kobfred to a grand Hutt banquet as his honoured VIP guest. Kobfred attempted to sway the Hutt into inviting more, Hugo took a little offence at this and downgraded his invite to that of ‘Challenger’.

Ghost and Oz returned to the Honey Badger where a transmission was waiting for them:

Exalted ones! The privilege and honour of the Grand [[Fortune and Glory: The Granee Noopa | Granee Noopa]] awaits! Know that such an opportunity is presented only to those who have earned the respect and admiration of an illustrious – and anonymous – benefactor. Do not squander such an opportunity – the Grand Granee Noopa is only held once every thousand years. Your arrival on Nal Hutta is expected no later than two weeks than the receipt of this invitation. No further contact will be made until the Grand Granee Noopa has concluded. May fortune favour you!

The invitation is direct, referring to the members of Predator Squadron (minus Zarcus and Kobfred) by name.

The Battle of Mon Cala Part Three

Mission Roster

The battle continues, Predator Squadron cripple two more of Ravik’s Star Destroyers, eventually succeeding in breaking through their immense armour and blowing them up. then Kobfred incites a mutiny among some of the damaged Imperial forces. Because of this the New Republic Forces are able to break through, cutting down Ravik’s forces and obliterating his front line. Oz called up Ravik to taunt him, identifying himself by his full title. Ravik suggested Oz take up discussions of his past with Zsinj.

Predator Squadron stop for a quick re-arm aboard the Dawn of Tranquility, getting some quick repairs. Kobfred jumps ship to help out aboard the MC-85 Star Cruiser.

They rejoin the battle, skirting the outskirts to swing around and hit Warlord Zsinj’s port flank. They engage his defences there, working together to take down a Lancer-Class Cruiser before it can obliterate their forces. They note that Ravik has sent a force of TIE Defenders and TIE Raptors to engage the enemy at his rear – they meet Zsinj’s forces of TIE Fighters and TIE Aggressors.

The battle continues…

The Battle of Mon Cala Part Two
Predator Squadron Join the Space Defence

Mission Roster

Kobfred addressed Lando, asking him whether it he could ask the Hutt dignitary downstairs for reinforcements. Lando replied that they could use the help and that he trusted Kobfred to handle it.

Kobfred asked the Hutt captain whether he’d be willing to provide them with reinforcements – after all if the New Republic lost the Hutt would be with them. Captain Hugo thought this over, he said that the Hutt Kajidics wanted recognition that the Hutts are an independent nation, and for the New Republic to acknowledge that any territory that the Hutts may seize by right of conquest belongs to the Hutts. Kobfred agreed to these terms, and Hugo replied that it was a good thing his fleet was right nearby.

From between Mon Cala’s two suns (where they would likely have been shielded from sensors), a large formation of Hutt warships took flight towards the battle between the New Republic’s, Ravik’s and Zsinj’s forces.

As the squad prepared to join the battle, Tobin called Cobra Talonbane, and requested the Syndicate’s help. Luckily Talonbane was currently on nearby Garel and, swayed by the promise of valuable salvage, he agreed to arrive as soon as possible.

Galish and Kobfred rallied some pilots and crew to join them in battle. Most of the pilots young and inexperienced. Predator Squadron’s contingent consisted of:

  • An MG-100 StarFortress SF-15 crewed by Ghost, Galish, Zarcus, Zar and a New Republic crewman.
  • An MG-100 StarFortress SF-15 crewed by Dean, Oz, Kobfred and a New Republic crewman.
  • Gand took a Y-Wing and New Republic gunner.
  • Tobin alone in a B-Wing.
  • 2 groups of 3 A-Wings, each escorting a StarFortress.
  • A group of 3 X-Wings, escorting Gand’s Y-Wing.

The lights rimming the hanger entrance turned from red to green, and they punched it, launching down the flight tube right as it aligned with the nearest segment of Imperial lines.

Ravik’s vanguard line had pulled in close to the New Republic shipyards. The shipyard defence stations were hammering away, but the New Republic fleet had suffered some significant damage in this sector. The Dawn of Tranquility put itself and it’s augmented shield between the damaged ships and the Imperial fleet.

Predator Squadron roared towards the nearest Star Destroyer – Ghost, Galish & Zarcus’s StarFortress sprinting ahead of the formation. They dodged and weaved through the Imperial fighters, firing off the first volley of bombs. They struck the Star Destroyer directly on the bridge, crippling it in one fell swoop.

They were surrounded by Imperial fighters – TIE Fighters, Hunters and Interceptors – the battle absolute chaos. The rest of Predator Squadron came in and tried to give them some cover fire.

Dean, Oz & Kobfred’s StarFortress then broke right, heading towards the next Star Destroyer in the Imperial formation. They ran into the defence fighters, only to be provided with cover by the arriving Syndicate forces. Mesa led the Syndicate starfighters into battle in her Lancer-Class Pursuit Craft.

They got off a volley of bombs at the Star Destroyer, damaging it’s engines, but they were unable to take it out of the fight yet.

Ghost, Galish & Zarcus headed for the left Star Destroyer – it launched 5 TIE Defenders in response, along with more TIE Fighters. Although they took out two of the TIE Defenders, their own craft took some damage. They got off a volley against the Destroyer, damaging it’s power systems. This gave Gand an opening to carefully aim a set of proton torpedoes from his Y-Wing, they hit their mark, taking out the Star Destroyer’s shields.

Chaos reigns throughout the battlefield, the fight continues next week…

  • No XP this week. It’ll be the same Obligation/Duty/Morality next week.

Mission Roster

The Battle Commences

The twin suns of Mon Cala are high in the sky as the Imperial fleet streams towards the New Republic defence line. The flagship (an Assertor-Class Star Dreadnought) begins broadcasting:

“Attention members of the Rebel Alliance, this is Grand Moff Ravik of the Galactic Empire. Surrender peacefully, power down your shields and you will be spared”.

The Imperial fleet consists of the Assertor-Class, 11 Imperial-Class Star Destroyers, 1 Venator-Class Star Destroyer and assorted support ships.

Admiral Ackbar begins rallying the New Republic forces:

“All craft form up. Defence Formation Cresh! They may out-gun us, but you have all trained for this. If we hold our line, of our resolve is true, we will pull through this day. We’ve faced greater odds than this and survived. The New Republic will not fall today!”

The New Republic fleet begin repositioning its ships and the orbital defences around the shipyards begin powering up. More ships begin dropping out of hyperspace – smaller picket ships that are being recalled from patrols. Mostly Nebulon-B’s and CR-90’s.

On the surface of the ocean, Tobin spots a group of smaller Imperial craft breaking through the New Republic lines and getting into the atmosphere – A squadron of Alpha-Class Star Wing fighters escorting a pair of LAAT/I Gunships. The gunships sides begin opening and infantry begin their high-altitude drops down to the ocean surface. Tobin calls in a warning to the city below.

City Evacuation

Down in the city, shrill alarms start sounding. Whisper organises an evacuation of the conference to a nearby bunker with Ambassador Pok (the Mon Cala diplomat chairing the events). They get a call from Oz (who is travelling with Lando to the underwater construction site) – he relays to them that General Rieekan wants them to find a way to evacuate the diplomats to the construction site so they can get them off planet. Oz is going to help secure the area.

At the bunker they find that two diplomats are missing – Senator Nudo from ORD Mantell (the Aqualish) and Senator Pato Set from Ithor (the irritable Ithorian). Ghost goes off in search of them whilst Gand, Kobfred and Whisper take some Mon Cala troops in search of some transport.

As they make their way towards the spaceport they see that the many New Republic ships are taking off to join the battle. They’re ambushed by a group of sea-troopers, one of which carries a torpedo launcher. They quickly scramble to take out the torpedo trooper, Gand shoots it out of his hands, it goes off and hits a nearby building showering the Imperials in debris. Unfortunately the shockwave causes parts of the coral structure in which Predator Squadron have taken cover to begin shattering into hundreds of razor-sharp knife-like shards.

Predator Squadron eventually gain the advantage but it is not without cost – both Gand and Kobfred are gravely injured. The battle culminates when a group of patrolling Mon Cala knights happens upon the battle and their Keelkana mounts feast on the Imperial commander.

One Sea-Trooper survives, Whisper and Kobfred interrogate him for his orders. He explains that the Empire’s mission on the surface is to disrupt the New Republic defences, targeting the power stations and shield generators in the cities.

They find some intelligence on what’s left of the Imperial commander indicating how the Empire found the conference:

Ravik’s son uncovered intelligence on Canto Bight that led him to tracking down a Rebel fleet group in the Lianna System. They attacked, and when the Rebels escaped to hyperspace they intercepted partial co-ordinates being broadcast. The Empire then plotted possible jump co-ordinates from there in the direction they escaped with the partial co-ordinates and the logical destination was Mon Cala.

After questioning the surviving Imperial soldier they pass him into Mon Calamari custody and the group continues to the spaceport. Gand collects the rocket launcher.

Ghost tracks down the missing Senators to the hotel bar, the Aqualish has turned it into a self-service establishment. Ghost threatens to shoot up the bar and succeeds in turning the Aqualish away from his self-destructive ways. She tries to also coax the Ithorian to rise up, but his despair is too strong. She eventually decides to simply tether the Ithorian to her with a grapple line and drags him to the bunker.

In the bunker Galish tries to raise the diplomat’s spirits by recruiting them into the League of Fancy Hats. This is unsuccessful as many of the diplomats are more concerned with their impending doom and many others have read the New Republic Intelligence report on potentially dangerous organisations – her cult is made up mostly of Imperial POWs, and is on a New Republic watchlist. Ghost returns and finds methods to motivate the group of diplomats.

Aboard the Dawn of Tranquility

Lando and Oz arrive at the Dawn of Tranquility construction site. Oz initially focuses on getting Lando to the bridge safely, sending some soldiers to secure the shield generator. Once dropping Lando off at the bridge, Oz begins heading back down the ship.

Zarcus, still on the detention level, finds the lobby. There are 6 Mandalorians set up in there, one with a light-repeating blaster. Zarcus manages to avoid being spotted (with the assistance of Zar), and he calls Oz for assistance and advice.

Together they co-ordinate their strike on the Mandalorians. Oz climbs on top of the turbolift roof, and sets it for the detention level, the doors open and the nearest wave of Mandalorians open fire. Zarcus snags the light-repeating blaster operator with a found glop grenade, it begins blocking off that Mando’s air supply and gums up the heat vents of the light-repeater disabling it.

Oz drops down, lets forth several blasts from his rifle, sweeping fire across the area. He takes down one Mandalorian and causes the power systems of the light-repeater to overheat, causing the entire foam from Zarcus’s glop grenade to engulf that side of the room in flames.

Zarcus throws on Mandalorian across the room into the mouth of hell that Oz had opened up and repositions himself in cover. Unfortunately a Mando blasts a chemical suppresent system above Zarcus’s head, dousing the entire area in toxic chemicals.

The Mandalorian leader (taking cover behind the console) opens up on Oz with his ridiculously large rifle. This hit Oz feels, but more pertinent is that the Mando blasted the safeties of the elevator. Two Mandalorian reinforcements arrive, they’re dragging a figure with a black bag over their head.

With a speed of thought probably afforded to him by his droid systems, Oz decides that the bigger one is the harder they fall, and that Mandalorian was plenty big. Oz quickly secures himself with grappling hook as the elevator crumbles around him, he opens up on the Mandalorians, raining holy fires of vengeance upon them. As his gun falls silent, the Mandalorian leader keels over, his beskar’gam – supposedly impregnable armour – lay riddled with fist-sized blast holes. Oz swings his way into the room, stepping through the flames, like a spectre of death to the handful of battered Mandalorians that survived his onslaught.

Zarcus sends Zar in, who unleashes his blood howl. Each Mandalorian being severely injured from Oz’s blitz, being faced with this spectre that just killed their leader, and now this wolf, the Mandalorians feel fear. They make a break for it, running for the door, but Zarcus wrenches it from its motors and slams it shut in front of them. The Mandalorians, now trapped and apparently hopeless, exchange a solemn look between the three of them. They each draw daggers and take their own lives rather than be captured.

Oz attends to the Mandalorian’s prisoner, she introduces herself as Dignitary Chaaste. Oz recognises her from Alliance files – she’s Grand Moff Ravik’s former assistant. She explains that the Mandalorians were not breaking her out to save her, but to execute her for what she knows – she has agreed to defect to the New Republic and give them all that she knows about Moff Ravik’s citadel on Ryloth. Rieekan confirms her story to Oz and it seems as though they’ve wiped out the majority of the Mandalorians aboard the ship, so he and Zarcus head for the shield generator room to secure it against future incursions.

  • Oz acquired the Mandalorian leader’s rifle (a heavily modified DH-X Heavy Blaster Rifle) and he and Zarcus each grabbed some frag grenades.

Escaping the City

Gand, Kobfred and Whisper have to cut through the city’s zoo on the way to the spaceport, they pass by the 50m long corpse of a whaladon (it appears as if someone had thrown a thermal detonator into it’s blowhole). As they swim around it, it gives them an uneasy feeling.

They come to the spaceport and find that all spaceworthy ships already seem to have blasted off, those that are left appear to have been salvaged for parts. Gand does spot a small submarine, but it’d require at least two trips to ferry all the diplomats with it. As they’re deciding what to do a shadow falls over them, high above them an adult whaladon swims by, blocking out the sun with it’s 130m long bulk. It swims over the zoo and begins circling the corpse of the smaller creature – they’re fairly sure the larger one is it’s parent.

They approach the whaladon, tentatively at first. Whisper begins talking to it, and it seems to react (although she may be imagining it). Kobfred and Gand attempt to connect with it too, they’re fairly sure the massive creature is intelligent. They ask for its help, the whaladon solemnly seems to understand.

They climb on the creature’s back where there are a series of ridges that make easy handholds. They grab on and the whale rockets upwards, heading straight towards the surface. The whale stretches out into the sky, flipping around – backflipping so it is now pointed straight down towards the water.

They brace themselves as the water rushes over them, barely shielded from the impact by the ridges on the whale’s back. The creature heads down at an angle – heading deeper, away from the city. It arcs around and heads for the rock wall – they’re approaching a cave. No hesitation the whale dives straight in at full speed.

After rocketing through a long tunnel, the whale comes out into a large cavern, huge crystals are embedded in the ceiling, reflecting light from somewhere high above. The entire place has an ethereal glow, it exits that cavern somewhere near the top, heading into a tunnel of coral.

It begins slowing as it approaches an underground wall, and it begins emitting a deep resonating pulse from it’s throat. After some time the rock begins pulsating, cracking – eroding down in waves of dust.

In the bunker it feels as though there’s a massive earthquake, some of the dignitaries fear they’re being bombarded from orbit. Ghost prepares the dignitaries to evacuate the bunker, when the floor collapses and they come face to face with the whaladon.

Whisper explains that they brought transport (Ghost told them not to complain!). The whale opens its mouth expectantly. After some hesitation the diplomats reluctantly get into the jaws of the giant beast. (The smell is horrendous, almost overwhelming, yet also sort of calming).

The whale takes off again and begins circling the massive cavern, it’s really picking up speed at this point, there’s almost a whirlpool effect at the centre. It dives off down another tunnel, rapidly twisting and turning for a beast of it’s size. they come out in an underwater canyon and it begins weaving it’s way along. It comes to a stop overlooking the Mon Calamari construction yard, spitting out its passengers.

Kobfred, Whisper and Gand say goodbye to their friend, telling it to stay safe. As it swims off into the blue depths they’re fairly sure it waves back with it’s tail. The next time they look back, the whaladon has completely disappeared.

Blast Off

The party from the city reunite with Tobin at the docks and board the Dawn of Tranquility. Tobin heads for the shield generator as the rest escort the diplomats to safe quarters. Galish takes this opportunity to make her case to Count Drakul about the liberation of Gand, together with Ghost, Gand and Whisper she eventually convinces him to change his position.

Galish stays with the diplomats whilst the rest head for the bridge.

Tobin meets Oz and Zarcus in the shield generator room, they assist him in retuning the experimental shield generator they acquired on Canto Bight. Through some crazy mechanics they rig the shield system through the MC-85’s projectors, doing it so efficiently that they were able to permanently increase it’s defence in 2 zones. Tobin signs this insanely-built masterpiece with his name.

The maintenance catwalks retract from the ship as alarms signalling all personnel to stand by are sounded. The engines power up, the craft slowly starts rising from it’s cradle. More thrusters ignite and it picks up speed. More engines power up as the MC-85 breaks the surface of the ocean with a great tidal wave. The main engines kick in and the craft accelerates up through the atmosphere, and enters the orbital battlefield.

On the bridge Ghost, Gand, Whisper, Oz and Kobfred have a good view of the command display Rieekan and Lando are looking over. Down with the diplomats Galish attempts to comfort the Ithorian, who has his head in his hands muttering about how they’re all going to die. At the shield generator Zarcus and Tobin have a display monitor they’re watching.

More Imperial ships begin dropping out of hyperspace, several Star Destroyers including an Executor-Class Star Dreadnought. They begin broadcasting:

“Rebels, your day is done. Prepare to be obliterated!” there’s a pause, “Ravik, what are you doing here?”.

“Putting down a Rebellion, Zsinj ", comes the curt reply.

“That’s Warlord Zsinj, you-”

“Zsinj, you’re a very good tactical commander, but politics has never been your forte”.

Ackbar cuts in: “If you two would like a moment…”

Ravik comes back: “Zsinj I give you this one chance: let’s put aside our differences and crush the Rebellion. We can decide the future of the Empire afterwards together,”.

Zsinj responds, “I am Warlord Zsinj, ruler from ORD Mantell to the Gordian Reach, and I declare myself independent from Grand Moff Ravik’s corrupt regime and declare myself the rightful ruler of the Galactic Empire. I will crush you both”.

On Ravik’s end things seem to go dead, but you’re almost certain you hear a muttered “that f-ing moron” before it shuts off.

Ackbar quickly sets out their situation – if they run they’ll lose this sector of space, the New Republic’s main shipyard and it’ll mean the loss of a large amount of momentum built up since Endor. The time to draw a line in the sand is now. He orders Rieekan to put together a unit to strategically target key Imperial assets during the battle.

Ackbar hopes that Ravik and Zsinj will be so involved in fighting each other that it’ll give the New Republic an opening to do significant damage. Whichever of the two wins will hopefully be so battered that they’re forced to retreat.

Rieekan has Predator Squadron assemble on the hanger deck (including Kobfred and Zarcus, somehow Lando has managed to acquire their signatures confirming they’ve signed up to Predator Squadron, even though neither of them remember signing anything). There are dozens of ships in the hanger – A-Wings, B-Wings, X-Wings, Y-Wings, even a U-Wing and two experimental M-100 StarFortress Bomber SF-15s.

EpilogueA Brief Discussion on Tactics

1 As they’re readying for battle on the hanger deck Tobin and Galish engage in a brief discussion on tactics:

Tobin: Though a diversionary hit is useful. finesse is only so useful in deception. I am being entirely serious, one bomber isn’t going to blow up a Super Star Destroyer. Not one anyway.

Galish: No, it bloody well isn’t, not when Mon Cala is in trouble, as is all the diplomats.

Tobin: But what one bomber can do is, with the support network, open up the formation of one or the other.

Galish: And frankly. I’d like to get back to Skye alive.

Tobin: I mean, make diversionary raids to make them think we are hitting somewhere else, but ultimately we gain nothing by holding anything back. The alliance is already fully committed to this fight; half arsed measures is exactly why a diplomat can never understand war.

Galish: Urgh…

Tobin: That has been made abundantly clear by the motivations of many going into this conference.

Dramatic music

Galish: Tobin, I never said hold back, I am simply pointing out that it is a bad idea to go immediately in with the bombers. You claim that you must need to win the war – I put it to you that your mission is ultimately futile. Win something tangible, something that really matters to you. Liberate Gand, save your family, something like that. I am fighting in this to keep my wife and my adopted homeworld alive, free from the tyranny of the Empire. So when I say that I warrant some caution in rushing in, I mean it. Much as I would love for the napalm of bombing runs to light up the sensor grids, rash decisions could ultimately cost us.

Galish: I simply mean this – press the big red button when you know it is time, not because you want to.


“Oh? So that’s why you are a supporter of privatisation then? So you and your bloody royal bimbo can adopt some Iradorian children and watch the sun rise over your freshly tilled land that you vacated your own people off? You’re the same as that blue bitch, you go away from the war a few months, go back to your family and everything is sunshine and rainbows isn’t it? Long as you keep living you get to live the good life? I don’t even need to peak inside your mind to know exactly what you are thinking.”

“Fuck this, I don’t need to explain how I operate because I have been fighting this war continuously for four solid years years, even in my period of rest I’ve always had one eye over my shoulder because of those cursed red blades, or looking for my old friends that probably died two years ago! I don’t have any place I can go back to Galish! Scum like me don’t! The very best I can hope for is to use my particular set of talents to carve my path through those triangles to make the Grand Moff’s heart quake! And Force willing I will survive like I always have.

“I swear to the Force, the only reason you got your shit together was because of Ghost’s patience, that takes a seriously good quality to do just that. But in my eyes, you aren’t one of us. You never were.”

Tobin storms off to prepare for take off.

Galish: “You are damn right I got my shit together because of Ghost – something she’ll be repaid for I can assure you!”

Galish runs over to Tobin to stop him storming off.

bq. _"However, don’t you ever call my wife a bimbo! How dare you, prancing around with your magical, wishy-washy stuff going on. You’ve been fighting for so long, you can’t see the bigger picture! I didn’t go back to Skye with Khylira, she chose to go back herself. I was making myself useful working towards the one thing, the one thing that has any stability in my life, the liberation of Skye! You do have somewhere to go back to, where your family is, just like where mine is."

She jabs him in the chest with a finger.

bq. “What war mongers like you don’t get is sometimes, you have to take the long way around to get what you want. Want to see Gand liberated? Fine, go and do a direct assault, I am sure that’ll work. Shit like that worked fine for me for years – so much so I killed my own parents and the crew of the Midnight Star! Why do you think I drink so much, huh?!”

“Take it from me Tobin, rushing in will be the death of you.”

The Rodian’s body tensed as Galish spun him around; for a moment his entire slight frame seemed to reverberate with barely contained fury, yet against expectations the Rodian contained it behind his cold golden stare. His gaze turned away from her as her triade contained as he reached out, his mind drifted towards the matters of what had yet to be. Isolating the future was difficult when the canvas of time was shattered like hammered glass, endless shards seemed to stretch out in every which direction, yet as he grabbed the path of greatest abundance he saw events that rippled out from the origin of this shatterpoint, a most likely turn of events.

Tobin: “I, apologise.”

The Rodian’s first words seemed distant as he continued to look beyond her, before he abruptly snapped out with a flicker of his eyes.

Dramatic music

bq. _"But family? You presume too much. She already has hers in a place I can never follow because I just kill people and create instruments to kill more people, in addition I could give less of a shit about being honourable since most honourable people die from not considering their options, she didn’t like that and thus disowned me." _

“Besides, if I don’t end this war as soon as possible one of their filthy order will have their hand’s around my son’s throat like they almost did one year ago, dictating his future like everything else within their crumbling foundations. Because of your ignorance to the force, you will never have to know what that feels like, a fate to be eternally hunted like I have. The dead won’t rise to haunt you after all.”

“Besides. I have foreseen see a victory paved in slabs of durasteel, the wall of steel parting before us as our formation dives into their heart, forcing their great leader to flee with terror in his heart. My vision has never been better. Besides-”

The Rodian gestured past her towards Kobfred.

Tobin: “It seems one of the raw recruits wants your attention. I must prepare for our victory.”

The Rodian turned away sharply and continued, though he didn’t make his way to the M-100, instead he began checking over one of the B-wings.

_By the time Galish and Kobfred had managed to discuss his idea2, an idea she agreed with, she took stock of what the Rodian had said to her. Leaning by the M-100, a ship that looked singularly impressive, if the spec sheet suggested a thinly armoured one at that, Galish pondered over just how broken Tobin was. _

Dramatic music

Perhaps Tobin has missed the point – it didn’t really matter about the Force. What mattered was his actions. He chose to kill people and make instruments to do so. If he wasn’t honourable, was he to be trusted? Was she to be trusted?

She knew that her hijinks in her time with the group has been a cause of concern – Ghost in particular. Before reuniting with Khylira, Galish has really just been a wanderer, a gunner for hire, feeling immensely guilty about what she had admitted out of frustration to the Rodian. Certainly nothing before had really brought her to focus before but now… with a family and a whole planet to defend… perhaps it was time to settle. If only Tobin could see what Galish saw…

Dramatic Music

As Tobin prepared the B-wing, Galish’s intuition was correct; he didn’t see the life she imagined. All he saw was his mission, to eradicate every inch of the sith legacy that had dominated his entire life up to this point, to kill each and every inquisitor a task of such enormity that the Rodian couldn’t imagine what a life beyond this even looked like. They simply didn’t understand his reality! Most of them couldn’t! If he backed away tomorrow the Hands would find him when he was least prepared, as long as any one of them lived he would never have peace.

Peace is a lie, there is only the force.

The Rodian clambered into the cockpit and settled his hands on the controllers, fixing his visor down to bring up the display. The Rodian took one deep breath as he pushed the internal darkness down, a primal urge that had become his companion for the last four years and pushed aside the irrelevant information, the politicians, the recruits, his frueds, recommendations of rehab and petty grudges, instead turned his mind to one task. The battle.

But if I didn’t have the force, would I have peace? I wonder what that life would have looked like.

The Rodian sighed as that rogue thought was put to one side, Tobin’s concentration extended to the control panel to sharpen his focus, then he reached even further into the machine, the complex circuitry and the nuts and bolts that gave this craft form and he gave it further substance.

But how do I avoid what I saw? Do I even try and avoid it? Or do I just let it happen?

This entire ship was his territory now, others may enter it but now Tobin was intergrated into the ship not a single bolt could fall out of place without his knowing; it would hold firm.

What, losses, would I consider necessary?

Under 'Da Sea
Conference on Mon Cala

Mission Roster

Galish met with the Aquatic Species League in the bar at the conference centre. They were particularly curious to hear how an Aqualish became the princess of a planet of avians. Galish is trying to spread the word of her cult, the League of Fancy Hats, inviting a pair of drunk diplomats to her room (Dignitary Nudo, the Aqualish from ORD Mantell, and Shellok, a Heglic who impressed Galish with his bowler hat/breathing apparatus for his blowhole).

Ghost makes a security sweep of her quarters and discovers a present under Galish’s pillow. It’s a box of chocolates from Dracul (the Kallidahin representative who has been attempting to win favour with Galish). Galish introduces them to the League of Fancy Hats, they’re a little confused, but also a little charmed by her. Galish signs their proposal not picking up any shady details. She regrets her choice.

The diplomats discuss the issues facing aquatic worlds, explaining that this bill will help provide their worlds with the protection necessary.

Dracul is at the casino beneath the bar. Galish asks ghost to head to the casino, she refuses so galish escorts the group to the casino. (Move this a paragraph down) (Edit: moved by note taker)

Kob is at the casino looking for high rollers, two chiss enter looking around and then galish and her group enter. Ghost hands her some money, her money that Cassy had.

Chaos at the Spaceport Continued

Galish’s Tank

Galish, having been captured by Colonel Darillion, was being held in a fish tank overlooking a lounge. After some time being harassed by some of these new Stormtroopers that Darillion is operating with tapping on the glass, the Stormtroopers move on and the Colonel enters the lounge.

Galish witnesses as Klevic enters the room and she strains to hear what’s going on:

“Warlord Zsinj has a plan to end this charade in one swift stroke, he will wipe out the New Republic,” Darillion proclaims.

“What does he plan to do, march on Chandrilla and take back his homeworld? The New Republic will not give up their new capital so easily,” Klevic replies.

Darillion starts laughing, “For one who spends his time walking in a dead man’s shoes, you are far blinder and more impulsive than Kevlan was. But you were not the first of his pet assistants, were you?”

The colour drains from Klevic’s face, “If Zsinj has unearthed what I think, he should put it back. Derricot was unstable," desperation now tinges his voice, “His work was never meant to be used, it was meant for a last-ditch scenario that threatened existence itself”.

“The Emperor is dead, his Empire in ruins. If that does not threaten our existence, what possibly could?” Darillion proclaims.

“It won’t save the Empire,” Klevic is clearly getting desperate.

Darillion signals to his Mandalorian guards, who seize Klevic by the shoulders.

“Perhaps it will, perhaps it won’t. Either way you won’t be around to see it,” Darillion says callously.

“Damn it, Darillion, don’t be a fool!” Klevic says.

Darillion signals to the Mandalorians, Klevic flicks his wrist and extends a hidden blade, killing one Mandalorian and using his weapon on the other. Some stray shots impact Galish’s tank, cracking it. Galish tries to break it, but it won’t budge. Klevic holds the rifle up to Darillion and pulls the trigger.

Klevic stares at Galish trying to get out of the tank in bewilderment and shakes his head before running for the exit. Galish finally bursts out of her tank as alarms start going off.

  • She escaped dressed as an Imperial Supercommando. On the Imperial evacuation boat and then to orbit. She gets briefed a bit about the current Imperial status.
  • They regrouped with the Imperial forces as the Super Star Destroyer Iron Fist dropped into orbit of Cantonica. Aside from the Iron Fist, Galish also spotted 2 Imperial-Class Star Destroyers, a Gozanti transport and a Raider-Class Corvette.
  • Upon arriving Galish was pulled into a briefing where it was explained about the Empire’s goals on the planet.
  • Galish heads for an escape pod (finding a nice blaster on the way), but can’t unlock them. So she heads for a TIE Fighter, only to get pulled into an Imperial drop team.
  • The Imperial drop team crash on the island.

Mission Roster


  • Ghost meets up with Oz at the spaceport. They gather at the Honey Badger with Gand and Zarcus.
    • On the way back through security Gand realises that there’s no such thing as a free lunch, having been mildly poisoned and turned radioactive (it appears to be a specific distinct isotope).
    • Zarcus ran afoul of the mysterious Inspector Virgil of the Corporate Sector Authority. Zarcus claimed to be a bodyguard employed by the crew of the Honey Badger.
  • They call Dean and Tobin, who are still at the casino with the Chevin. Galish shows up as their waitress.
    • The Chevin doesn’t know for certain the proceedure for attending Pholstago’s auction as he’s never had the chance to go to one before. He’ll try and find out though. He can get around 4 of them into the auction as part of his entourage.
  • Everyone catches each other up so they’re all at the same page.
  • Ace arrives in-system with 4 A-Wings and 4 X-Wings from Liberator Wing. He has them land in some canyons outside the city whilst he heads for the spaceport to sync up with the rest of Predator Squadron.

Meeting the Delegates

  • Dean, Galish and Tobin go to the hotel at the casino and meet the delegates.
  • A group of Imperial Supercommandos burst into the room and start shooting on stun.
  • A housekeeping droid from the hotel complains about the level of damage, letting slip that the room is being charged to a ‘Han Solo’
  • Galish weaponises the mini-bar, but unfortunately is stunned. Dean and Tobin are forced to abandon her in order to get the delegates out safely.
  • Dean, Tobin and the delegates meet up with the others a few streets away (they have Cassie’s car with them). They take the delegates to a motel, whilst Ghost goes to investigate the Imperial presence.

Ghost’s Investigation

  • Ghost stops by the casino and pokes holes in their cover story.
  • Ghost heads to the warehouse Gand found. It’s been cleaned out recently and very thoroughly. She finds a large antenna on the roof though and hacks its logs: it’s hooked up to the HoloNet and been sending regular reports to the Telos system. A distress function seems to have been triggered in the relay now. Ghost disables it.

Galish’s Interogation

  • Galish is interrogated by Colonel Darillion. To his frustration Darillion realises that Galish doesn’t know anything of value to him, and decides to hold her (in a fish tank) to use as bait.

The Spaceport – Terminal Velocity

  • The next morning at the spaceport whilst checking his ARC-170, Ace encounters Inspector Virgil. He talks his way out of Virgil’s suspicions by pointing the finger towards Zarcus (Virgil has already been made suspicious of Zarcus due to his several run-ins with security, and most recently allowing his pet Howlrunner to defecate all over the spaceport lobby).
  • Ace tells Virgil that Zarcus owes him money, which is why he’s been visiting the Honey Badger. Virgil offers the services of the Corporate Sector Authority Debt Recovery Team, who will take a percentage of the recovered credits and attempt to resolve the matter on Ace’s behalf. Ace agrees signing the paperwork, sending Virgil off to enact it.
  • Virgil knocks at the Honey Badger, only to receive a lecture from Ghost on Imperial tax law. Ghost and Oz are unhappy that the inspector has headed their way – they’ve attracted far too much attention.
  • Ghost talks to Zarcus, explains the situation and then intimidated the Howlrunner causing it to soil itself all over the ship to teach Zarcus the need to clean up after his pet. Zarcus says that he understands and will take the message on board.
  • Oz calls Ace over to the Honey Badger, telling him that it’s unacceptable to be sending law enforcement in the direction of the group ship, that it compromises the mission. Ace was unrepentant, so Oz drags him outside and over to the Inspector (who is sat on a bench going through the taxation logic Ghost presented him with).
  • Oz explained that he’d brought Ace to the inspector to settle things for wasting the inspector’s time (which the inspector mentioned was a criminal offence in the Corporate Sector), and that he wasn’t part of their crew. Oz forced Ace to his knees, only for Ace to trigger his jetpack and flew up into the support beams. The Inspector asked Ace to deactivate the jetpack and land. Ace responded by pulling out his blaster rifle and opening fire on the inspector.
  • Oz heads back to the ship as Ghost comes out to see what’s going on. Ace is involved in an aerial shootout with the CSA Security Officers (also known as Espos) on the ground, whilst the inspector is down on the floor bleeding out. Ghost heads over to the inspector and attempts to keep him alive with the Force.
  • Ace blasts a hole in the roof and attempts to escape, only for his jetpack to be clipped by blaster fire. Escaping on foot, he ducked down a vent, failing to evade the Espos on his tail, he ends up trapped between the security and a spinning fan. He chooses to make his stand, killing several officers, before being taken down. As he fell unconscious his left leg got caught in the fan, severing it, but the Espo captain who stunned him pulled Ace out and arrested him.

From Cantonica with Love

A Fractured Empire

It has been 4 months since the Battle of Endor. The Emperor is dead, the second Death Star destroyed. The Rebel Alliance has been reformed into the NEW REPUBLIC. Although some systems celebrate, the grip of the Empire tightens in others.

The birth of the New Republic brings new challenges, both militarily and diplomatically. With every passing day the Galactic Civil War escalates on every side. In an attempt to shape the direction of the Republic’s war effort a summit has been called.

As the war shifts the Republic Navy is reorganising and General Rieekan has assigned Predator Squadron to a new initiative – LIBERATOR WING. Their first mission as part of this assignment is to meet with the task force and safely escort the final delegates to the conference….

Mission Roster

Welcome to Liberator Wing

Star lines reverted into distant dots as Predator Squadron dropped out of hyperspace at the rendezvous point. A handful of Alliance New Republic ships orbit a small desolate moon at the far edge of the Lianna system (theoretically this system lies in a patch of contested space bordering some Republic-held territory and a region controlled by the Empire).

They’re met by a group of patrolling X-Wings and are allowed to land after transmitting their clearance codes. The small group of ships is made up of a MC30 Frigate (a pocket Mon Calamari warship), a couple of CR-90’s and a Quasar-Fire Class Carrier called the Liberator II.

They landed on the carrier and met with Captain Hollana, a female Xexto. She greeted them and explained that their general went to pick up the final delegates and that he hadn’t reported in for a week. She had received orders to wait for Predator Squadron and stall General Rieekan in the meantime. She explained that it was General Calrissian who had gone missing, he and his second in command (Commander Shriv Suurgav) had checked in once they arrived at their destination, but hadn’t been heard from since.

They were to meet the delegates on Cantonica, a planet Predator Squadron knew little about – only that it was in the Corporate Sector (and thus weapons were likely heavily regulated), and that it was some sort of tourist hot-spot.

Hollana also explained that General Rieekan had assigned new members to the squad – Lieutenant Dean Kessler, a Corellian pilot and Zarcus, a Zabrak bounty hunter on retainer for the New Republic.

Predator Squadron needed to travel to Cantonica, find out what happened to General Calrissian and Commander Shriv, locate the delegates for the summit and return to Liberator Wing. The Quarrack (the MC30 Frigate) is suffering hyperdrive problems, and they likely will not be fixed for a few days. Thus they had 5 days to travel to Cantonica and return to the task force so the task force could make it to the summit in time – they can’t afford to be late.

So they loaded up an X-Wing and the Intruder aboard the Honey Badger and took off for Cantonica, the journey taking them approximately 32 hours. During the trip Zarcus introduced them to his pet Howlrunner puppy, Zar.


They arrived in system to find that Cantonica is largely a desert planet, but even from orbit they were able to spot the large artificial Sea of Cantonica, which the automated transmissions advertise as the largest artificial sea in the galaxy. Those same advertisements proclaimed the wonders of the coastal city Canto Bight – the main tourist hotspot built on the coast of the sea. A lot of adverts were promoting the services of hotels, spas and casinos in the city. Most of the services on offer seemed to be outside the price range of Predator Squadron.

Although there are some smaller settlements and mines throughout the desert, the vast majority of the traffic was heading to the main spaceport at Canto Bight (which is where the co-ordinates from the New Republic seemed to indicate General Calrissian had gone, Predator Squadron reasoned “It’s Lando, of course he’s gone to the casinos”), so the battered and heavily-armed Honey Badger joined the queues of pleasure liners and yachts heading towards the main spaceport there.

Tobin attempted to peer into the future and was greeted with a vision of himself standing in a casino, in a crowd of people all in rapt attention to a Mustafarian wielding a gavel or hammer. Tobin was sat around a table in deep conspiratorial conversation with a Chevin he hadn’t met.

Landing at the spaceport, there seemed to be some initial confusion and then laughter at the sight of the Honey Badger touching down. They signed up to the exorbitant docking fees and passed through customs (all blasters are banned from Catonica, and all entrants are subject to weapon scans). Most passed through uneventfully, although Zarcus was required to fill in a form for Zar, so intimidated his way into being allowed to put Zar back on the ship. On his second attempt through he was selected for a random screening and had to fill in a form and pay a large fee to get out of it.

Whilst all of this was going on Gand surreptitiously hacked into the spaceport’s logs and found that a shuttle matching the description of the one Lando departed Liberator Wing in, it was docked at hanger bay 23 and it noted that the shuttle was overdue for it’s departure by several days. Gand then passed through security, only to be accosted by a fellow Gand in the next aisle. The Gand recognised Gand, he said that Gand’s brother, Jerome the Great, had sent the Gand to Canto Bight and asked if Gand was there for the same reason. Gand said he wasn’t, and this was where the Gand realised that Gand was a wanted member of the Rebel Alliance. The Gand pulled out his comlink and Gand wrestled it away from him, catching a glimpse of an address in the contact information. The Gand then called security, who weren’t bothered, so he walked off. Gand then called security because the Gand was violating spaceport rules and crossing aisles. Security swooped in and took the Gand into a back room. (Yes, I just wanted to see how many times I could use the word ‘Gand’ in a paragraph – 18.)

So the group promptly split up – Dean and Tobin headed to Canto Casino, Zarcus went to Zord’s Spa House (a hub in the local bounty hunting community he’d heard of), Gand went to check out the address and Ghost went to Hanger 23 to examine Lando’s shuttle.

Canto Casino

Tobin and Dean arrived at the casino and entered. Tobin spotted Captain Armin, a guard to the Zygerrian King he had once encountered in one of the casino’s high-stakes areas, he also spotted the Chevin from his vision.

Dean went to the bar to try and pry information out of one of the waitress – trying the old Corellian charm. He met a Zeltron waitress and went to a balcony overlooking the Fathier race track, where they got a romantic view of the city. She explained that she had been brought to the planet as a slave, she eventually saved up enough money to earn her freedom and now works as a waitress to get by. Dean asked after Lando – she had met him (he was very charming). He’d been meeting with a Mustafarian who frequented the Casino (every evening around 10pm usually). The Mustafarian had been involved in some sort of confrontation with a Duros (who was with Lando) at the Casino one evening (approximately a week ago), at the same time Lando was present. Dean and the waitress exchanged comm details and she agreed to call him when the Mustafarian arrived.

The Chevin was loudly berating a member of the Canto Casino staff because they wouldn’t accept his membership card to access the high-stakes area. Tobin convinced the Chevin to calm down and have a drink with him. Tobin attempted to slice into the Chevin’s membership card to trick the system, unfortunately the Canto Casino security was too good, but he did find out that the membership was paid for by Black Sun and it hadn’t been renewed in almost 20 years.

Tobin and the Chevin (Drumet) bonded over both having interests in ORD Mantell – it being Tobin’s homeworld and Drumet having a failed casino business there. Eventually they sussed each other out, Tobin figuring that Drumet was involved in smuggling of some sort. Drumet mentioned that he was on Cantonica on business, involving a Mustafarian.

  • Drumet is planning to steal some merchandise off the Mustafarian during the auction, Tobin and Dean agreed to help him. The rumour is that the Mustafarian has captured a Rebel operative and intends to auction him off to the highest bidder.

Zarcus at the Spa

Zarcus entered the spa (located not too far from the Canto Casino), and talked his way past the receptionist and into a meeting with Zord. Zord only takes meetings in the seclusion and safety of his private steam room.

Zarcus entered the steam room and a rancid smell took hold. A large form appeared with in the mist with bright yellow eyes. After a brief discussion Zord had two bounties that he felt might be suitable to test how good Zarcus’s skills are, he slid the datacards over to the zabrak out of the steam.

One bounty was on a Gand, 30,000 credits alive. Included in the information were stills from the spaceport security system showing Gand’s arrival. The other bounty was a 2000 credit bounty for the location and capture of a Duros, dead or alive. The Duros had been involved in an altercation with the Canto Bight Police Department not far from the casino and had escaped.

It is unknown who posted the bounty on Gand, but the CBPD posted the bounty on the Duros.

Zarcus left Zord’s place and headed for the Casino, deciding to call Gand to see if he wanted to split the bounty on himself.


Gand traced his address to a waterfront warehouse near a cafe district at the edge of the city. He used a water-side access door to swim into the warehouse where he found a hidden submarine dock. There appeared to be some activity around the warehouse, but he spotted an office in the catwalk above where Lieutenant Klevic was having a conversation with a mystery man with a dark beard and dark jumpsuit:

“Tell Zsinj that he’s free to make his move, should he wish,” Klevic says, “My father is way too busy worrying about Sloane and that moron Adelhard to focus on Zsinj. Every day his little kingdom crumbles around him, yet he does not notice”

The mystery man replies, “Moff Ravik should not discount Warlord Zsinj, his fleet is mighty. Soon Zsinj will sit on the Imperial throne, you should swear fealty to him”.

“Warlord, is it? How cute.” Klevic says derisively, “Zsinj may well free himself of my father’s yoke, but he will have more pressing matters to worry about than the wrath of Moff Ravik. He will find himself surrounded on three sides by the New Republic, by Grand Admiral Sloane on another and my father on the fifth – plus there’s the Mandalorian Sector right next door and the Zygerrians under their new king may well get ideas about independence. Zsinj is bold, I’ll give him that, and if he holds his nerve he may just carve out some territory for himself, but Zsinj ruler of the galaxy? Don’t make me laugh.”

  • Gand torpedoed the Empire’s plans by sabotaging their submarine, causing it to sink. He found out it was some sort of Imperial Intelligence operation and that they planned to travel to a private island in the middle of the Sea of Cantonica that’s owned by a Mustafarian named Pholstago.

Hanger 23

  • Ghost investigates Lando’s shuttle and finds a hidden message from Lando to the squad. He tells them not to worry, he planned on getting captured by Pholstago so he could find out where Pholstago was storing this experimental shield generator that was stolen from the Empire. He now needs them to rescue him so you can steal it.

Rewards and Experience

  • 5XP for investigating what happened to Lando and putting together a plan to work with Drumet.
  • 5XP for dealing with the Imperial Intelligence team.
  • Tobin gained 5 Conflict and rolled 10, his Morality went up to 50.
