Ex:SWTOR 1, A Shift in the Force
Session 03: “Can I make a suggestion that doesn’t involve violence, or is this the wrong crowd for that?”
The crew trekked into silonian country on Corellia to investigate a rumored crystal mine. slipping past local law enforcement in a rented speeder, they made their way to and into a recently closed facility. Using rented mining equipment, it was a simple matter to locate and mine kilograms of crystals while watching out for local fauna. However, after a few days of work, other scavengers attempted an ambush. A quick battle and cleanup later, the group headed back to port.
The crystals were fenced [FOR FAR MORE THAN THE STATED RUMOR PRICE SOMEHOW :)] on Coruscant. Basic principles of larceny and stolen goods pricing left our thieves with fewer credits than expected and a bad taste in their mouths, a fight narrowly avoided.
A subsequent trip to an ongoing archeological dig found Hanna Mess. She had been on Coruscant conducting a seismic survey and identified a starship’s remains deep within the labyrinthine mechanical subsystems of the planet. The Arkanian historian believes the remains of droid revolutionary HK-01 are on board. A “droid cult” operates in the area, preventing “biologicals” from approaching the starship. Mess further believes the vessel contains a light saber owned by Jedi Master Arca Jeth. The weapon was lost to a droid and forced Master Jeth to spontaneously develop the “mechu macture” Force ability. She related her story, including that her personal droids were instrumental in helping her avoid a death sentence while studying the area.
Meanwhile, Captain Shevel has completed refitting the “Lucky Lady XVI” and is carring a shipment of Wyren’s Reserve.
