Kraken was able to set us up with a big game excursion with Bowser. He runs his gang out of the back of Gander Outdoors, a hunting, fishing with a Camping Galaxy outlet off the side of it. We all pile into the truck and head out. We make it there without incident. AMP pulls the meter out of the ground and throws it off the building. He then proceeds to spray paint the curb VIP Parking and pulls out the sticker he stole out of Shavven’s stolen speeder bike. Whatever works. We then walk in.
Derryn sees a sign for a hunting excursions registration desk in the back corner. We now have the map of the store. We head over to the registration desk and give them out names. They say we have 15-20 minutes so we can browse the store. I go over to the first aid section. Krin and Dom are near the melee weapons, Nura is aimlessly walking around and Hypur is using the refreshers. I find a bucket of stimpacks for 2500 credits. I com the group and ask if anyone would go in with me, It would 312 credits each and everyone agrees. I also find a military medpack.
We all walk into the back room.
“So Kraken tells me you all are tough”
“We have been in a scrap or two”
“If you want me to throw in with the Rebellion, you are gonna have to prove yourself.”
AMP throws up a holographic picture of the Vronsker we have hunted and Bowser laughs.
“We are going to hunt us a Gundark matriarch” as he point towards a safari type vehicle. “Let’s load up”
On the way AMP gives us a brief on the Gundark and shows us a pic of it. It looks pretty scary.
Bowser pulls up to an old abandoned warehouse and steps out of the vehicle. Behind him jumps out a small robotic dog. I recognize it as a cybot galactica, canine series huntng droid. I have heard of them in the rebellion.
Bowser waves everyone forward into the building and into the old turbo shaft. He cracks a glowstick on his knee and drops it off the side. It goes down… and down… and sown before it finally lands on the ground. He gets out his climbing gear and we then start to climb down. I make to the bottom with no problem. I excelled in that in boot camp. Others seem to have problems.
At the bottom, we find ourselves in a long dark hallway, at least, until AMP turns his lights on. Then it is a long well lit hallway. There is a door at the end. I pull my blasters and cautiously head for the door ready for anything. Bowser says “There is nothing to worry about here” and he blasts past me and starts to pry open the door. I start to help him. AMP opens the door with his magic fingers and Shorty gets a shock from the door panel.
We go through the door, and it looks like a medium sized storage room. There are dust covered crates everywhere. Next room. We are looking down another corridor and there is an intersection in the middle of the room. I cannot see anything in the intersection. Canine turns left and heads up the hall. Canine is halfway up the hall, passing another set of plants. Bowser follows Canine and we follow them. We make it to the door. Canine and the rest of us go through. There are stormtroopers . Two fire teams and one sergeant… great… Nura hides behind the statue in the middle of the room. Shavven throws a grenade. One stormtrooper jumps on top. He becomes obliterated. Derryn makes the other fire team run away. I shoot at one of the fire teams and my shot hits. The rest of the team runs and so does the sergeant. Shorty annihilates the last remaining stormtrooper. Roka shoots at the sergeant. Lands a hit. Nura takes a pot shot at him and grazed his ear. I guess he was freaked out because he dies from fright.
Just then, we hear the blasters out of the darkness. It hits AMP and Shorty. AMP turns and shoots one and kills him, placing a dark hole square in his chest. AMP shines his light on the group. Another full squad… Fantastic. The door opens behind us and I hear “Sorry I am late for the party”
“That’s okay” I say, “ we’re used to it.”
“Did you save me a drink?”
“Yeah, but they stole it. Let’s get these Sithspawn!”
Derryn attempt to fear them, but fails. I shoot at the sergeant and I kill him in a hailstorm of blaster fire. Shorty throws a ‘nade in the middle of the squad. Again, a stormtrooper dives on it, sacrificing himself for his comrades. I have to give him props, though. They do have a sense of camaraderie. Dominick takes his shot and takes out the rest of the minion group. Hypur headshots one of the stormtroopers. Nura shoots one and AMP finishes them off. The blaster fire slackens and Bowser pokes his head in and says “Did you get them all?”
I say sarcastically, “Yeah we took care of them for you”
“Did you get all of them?”
“There are 5 running away but we killed the rest”
“You need to get them ALL. I knew that they will kill you or you would kill them and my decision would be made based on that. You need to find them and kill them.”
Derryn started to chase them down and hops on the wall over the tree in a flip, throws his lightsaber, decapitates them and then catches the saber in a kneeling stance. He pops his lightsaber closed, puts it in the cane and head back to the group.
Meanwhile, we are interrogating Bowser. He asks, “Can he handle them by himself”
“Oh, he can handle himself” I say.
Derryn comes back and says “The deed is done. If you don’t believe me wait for Shorty”
Just then Shorty comes around the corner with 2 stormtrooper heads on his hands making them talk. Bowser says “Right.”
I say “Shorty is disturbed”
Shavven starts interacting with the heads and Bowser says to me “Your group IS a little odd. Anyway, we really DO have a Gundark problem down here if you are still interested. I am siding with you either way. You have proved your mettle.”
Dominick slaps him on the back and says “My friend, we are going to have a head over the bar tonight!”
We head back down to the crossroads and head down the stairs. AMP open the door and it is a dark room. There are 10 Gundark in this room. AMP shuts off his headlight and we all try to sneak in. Successfully. Nura hangs back. Derryn just about takes out an adult by himself and Hypur helps to take him out. Almost there… I take out 3 adolescent Gundark with my blasters. Eventually there was only one group left. Shorty threw a grenade in the middle of the group and took care of a good majority of them. The group was eventually decimated by Derryn. The room has been cleared…. TO BE CONTINUED...
We are making plans on infiltrating the cansino. Dominick is driving us “Dancers” to the cansino. AMP is wearing his social suit. It looks like a Sullestriun male, of course… Dominick starts the truck and… it stalls. I say “Do we need to get Liza out here?”
AMP replies, “Don’t insult me” as he fixes the gas line with blaster proof line. Apparently, blasters made a small hole in the gas line.
We finally make it to the cantina, Ace’s Last. The bouncer stops us at the door and says that we cannot enter. He eyes us curiously. AMP tells the bouncer that we are tonight’s entertainment and he is to let us through or it will be his job. He says that we need to go in and talk to the boss and the AMP tells him that he can have the rest of the night off, paid. The bouncer gives him a nod and then moves on. We enter the cantina and AMP hacks the computer to put us as tonight’s entertainment, and cancel tonight’s real entertainment. We are going to receive 10000 credits as a performing group. We are called the G-Strings. Shavven, Hypur and I are dancing on the stage with Nura and Roka curtain dancing. Hypur sees someone who looks like Kraken from the back and communicates with me where he is. I start singing with the current song and the man turns to look at me. Roka jumps off of the curtain and sticks the landing on the stage. We cannot quite tell and so Shorty runs up to him, purposly trips, and looks up at him. He notice it is him, screams and runs away.
Apparently I am impressing Kraken because he gets up from his table and comes up to the back of the stage. I invite him up on stage and Hypur, Roka and I start to dance up on him. At the end of my dance I hit the stage and smoke explodes into the air, causing a smokescreen. When the smoke clears, we are gone to the back of the stage. Applause erupts from the cantina.
Kraken walks backstage and tells Dom, “Don’t bother us, just the girls, and the droid.” Shorty runs and jumps onto AMP and Kraken says, “Yeah, he’s cute, he can come too”. We get to the private room and he sits down, pulling Hypur and I down with him. We go with it and giggle like school girls. He asks, “So how long have you been around”
I say, “Oh, we have been around for a little while, just doing small gigs here and there.”
“I haven’t heard of you before. I thought I had heard of all the performers in this sector”
“This is the biggest gig we have done.”
“You should do this more often, I know the manager and can get you in on a weekly basis.”
“If we can get paid more, we would,” says Hypur.
“How much is the boss paying you?”
“10000 credits, but we have to pay security and such. So it would be split 9 ways. That doesn’t leave a whole lot.”
“Fair. I will talk to the boss”
We then proceed to turn him to our side. Successfully, it turns out. He not only says he will stop the fighting in his sector but will bring his buddies (i.e the other Lt) to this bar if we perform. We agree and in the next few weeks, we turn 5 more Lt. Dom, Derryn and AMP are going to try to turn Lynch and Bowser. Lynch is a boxer who owns a gym and Bowser is a big game hunter… Should be interesting...
