Alignment

What type of Star Wars game are you looking to play? Basically how do you want to “align” yourselves? I will tailor objectives to that.

The force

Obligation

Give some thought to your characters Obligation. Obligation is a core narrative and game mechanic in EDGE OF THE EMPIRE. Obligation influences both the characters and the adventure, often in unexpected ways.

It can introduce new and unplanned alterations to the current circumstances. It also mechanically reinforces the concept that the universe responds to the characters’ actions and that their decisions mean something beyond both the GM’s and players’ immediate control.

  • Comedic

  • Romance
  • Swashbuckling

Or what combination are you looking for?

On the Jungle Planet

The ship is now space worthy. However micro fractures from the crash are plaguing the Tenebrus. One stray asteroid would spell death in the black.

Tooling Around Tatooine.

The PC’s have docked at a Grade 3 dock and paid 60cr for the first days dock fee and an additional days of power.

Next bill due in 2 days 20cr + any maintenance hours and consumables refreshed.

Three bounties were given and the team has chosen to try and get all three.

  • Sala 440 credit no harm. Get her to thumb scan a datapad after she has read the letter.
  • Bif tunga/ 780 credit eviction violent. No harm to the building. Bring squatter to Gareebo’s Management Office.
  • ZAal Mineti Duros 1100 credit no harm whatsoever. Bring to the field office of Susuuro Engine works.

We left off with the team surrounding the Squatters building on the outskirts of town. It sits on a large parcel of land that appears to be used as a refuse area. Piles of loose trash are everywhere. As they approached the building from all sides, a blaster shot rang out. He knows you’re out there and does not appear to be in a cooperating mood.

Having succeeded in two of the three bounties our team found itself rewards with a hard days work. two light blasters aint bad for a bonus.

Ryloth Reconnoiter

The team decided to try to sell the plates they found back to the Rylothian government. However, upon arriving on Ryloth they discovered what a world looks like under imperial rule.

They were limited in what they could do. The Twi’lek population was under severe scrutiny. News feeds reported that Ryloth was independent and secure. It was far from it.

They found some local educators who speculated on what the plates would be worth. However, due to the Imperial Presence they would not be able to sell them here.

They were given the name of Senator Ro’Vena on Alderann. In exile. They have started back toward the Tenebrus to take that journey.

Alderaan Angst

The team arrives on Alderaan in record time!

While leaving the ship they stumble across another ex-employee or Rubba Ramesh Narba. After a brief Narshadian stare down they make pleasant chat before continuing on to the Capitol in Aldera.

On the way, a tail was discovered and a fight broke out on the moving walkways in front of a space scout troop. In the investigation two of the PC’s had their weapons confiscated but no other complications arose from that incident…. besides some scarred young lives, witnessing death up close.

The met with Senator Ro’vena. After a successful negotiation they made a large sum of cash which they spent fixing the ship and buying supplies.

Now to decide who to approach with the info of the abandoned planet.

Felucia Feelings

After registering the Tenebrus for 1000 cr on Alderaan the party went to Felucia to look for parts for Meego’s cloak. He had discovered that Kinova Global made something called a Dynamic Dissipation Coil. These devices are used to cool Hyperdrives on capital ships. While Kinova Global normall does not deal with the public, Meego was able to strike up a conversation with one of the engineers.

He agreed that if the Tenebrus took a load of Oriam Filters to a customer in the Trion system, he would pay them in a Dynamic Dissipation Coil. Through shrewd negotiation, they were able to pick up 10 units of fuel for the trip as well. They were to return with the datapad with the proper transponder signature to receive payment.

Attaching the cargo, magnetically, to the underside of the Tenebrus (( 2 setback for ventral gunning and pilot checks in atmosphere )) they jumped to the Trion cluster. Upon exiting the cluster they realized they had gotten there way too early.

The rendezvous was at an old mining station in an asteroid field. When their contact arrived in a YT1000, he was being chased by two Ghtrok pirates.
A battle ensued.

Clouds of Bespin

“I’m pleased you came, " the middle-aged Pan to ran man dressed in elegant blues and maroons says. "You have been recommended to me as people with a certain set of shills. I have a job offer for you—a scheme that requires those shills. What I’m about to propose is illegal, confidential, and could be somewhat dangerous—and, if you’re successful, could pay out tens of thousands of credits, perhaps more. I think you’ll discover it’s well worth your trouble. Now, which of you is interested?

A few days from now, a valuable gemstone will be auctioned here on Cloud City. The gem is known as the Jewel of Yavin and has a reputation for being ‘unstealable.’ The plan is this: infiltrate the auction and manipulate the bidders to raise the bid. We want the jewel to sell for as much as possible for maximum return when we slice into the central computer network and redirect the auction credits to our own accounts, hmm? The gala and gem are being held at the Figg & Associates art museum, which isn’t designed to protect an object that valuable, making this the best chance we have to nab it. You heard me right: we’re going to steal the gem twice. " -Arend

• Computers: In addition to needing a competent slicer, computer spikes, and encryption samples, the surveillance system in the art museum should be disabled for the heist as well.

• Knowledge (Lore): Corusca gems may also be used as lightsaber crystals, meaning they are potentially as deadly as they are beautiful.

• Mechanics: In addition to custom modifying the cloud car to suit, it may also be worthwhile to track down the Cloud City schematics to figure out the best entrances and exits for the art museum.

• Piloting (Planetary): Many races are won before even stepping foot on the track. In order to best formulate a strategy, the party needs to find out more about the racecourse and racers and hire on mechanics (page 46) and co-pilots if need be.

• Skulduggery: The party should attempt to examine the physical security features surrounding the gem itself, if not before the gala certainly during it. It may also be worthwhile to investigate the security guard details.

• Streetwise: The Four-and-a-Half cantina and the entirety of Port Town ares the best places to find other villains and scoundrels who may offer their expertise or services for a fee. Apparently the cantina is also where a number of the jewel’s guards have been going during their off-shifts.
