2 weeks have gone by and no progress has been made against the Brass Sabres. However, the attack has worked in our favor. Our popularity has increased with the local population, and they are more willing to deal with the Golden Hawkbats. On the last run, Derryn has brought Dari Edo, an ambassador for the Alliance, Major Yurist Wain as her bodyguard, Major Dex Adler, and Master Gunnery Sergeant Rolim Korr.
In the last two weeks Telvak has been chasing some bounty that he cannot talk about. Sounds a little shady to me, but I decided not to press the issue. My job here is to help free Drukenwell from Imperial hands, not stop every shady crime syndicate that may be held on this planet.
Shavven was complaining about this week not being pay week, but I pretty much told him to get over it. Not my problem.
Dominick took another leadership class. He participated in a"Build a Business Competition" and walked away with a 100 credit purse out of the deal. Guess he's good, although building things have never been my domain, sabotage is more my strength.
A Chiss named "Hyper" came in on the last shipment of troops and she has just been kind of hanging around the Cantina and getting to know the Golden Hawkbats. Roka is playing errand girl for Snaps and Jix challenged Sylvester for the Head Mechanic position and not only failed, but Sylvester took away all access to his tools, making it harder for Jix to fix his ship.
Telvak, Dom and I went to talk to Telvak's gang to try to recruit them tot he Alliance and to see if we could use his Dojo for training purposes. The gang leader agreed to join the Alliance but did not agree for us to use his dojo.
The Alliance military has brought a special forces team. To get things up and running, they have to establish a tactical network. There is a Com Relay Station a few blocks away from the Swoop Inn. We send Hyper and Wolf to scout out a path to the relay station. I wasn't sure it was the best idea because Hyper is awful attractive and I was right because Wolf was so distracted that he forgot that there are three turbo lifts leading to where we need to go. One is right down the street from the Swoop Inn, one a ways to the left of the Cantina. Supposedly the third is through a tunnel a little ways away so we send them to scout it out. Hyper sees a few pedestrians in the tunnel but nothing out of the ordinary.
I look around the Cantina and notice that Telvak is not there. I guess he got tired of waiting for the scouts to return because next thing I know I hear through the coms Wolf and Hyper yell in surprise as he zooms past them and up the turbo lift at the end of the tunnel. Wolf and Hyper attempt to catch up to Telvak but to no avail. Then Telvak trips, allowing Wolf to catch up to him. Wolf catches him and they go up the turbo lifts together. When Hyper get there she hits the big red override button, making Telvak and Wolf descend. She then takes the other turbo lift that is there up. As she is going up, Telvak jumps from his turbo lift and lands ever to ungracefully onto Hyper's lift. Hyper looks on the top of her lift and sees his and says "Heck no" and closes the door to the top of the lift. Wolf finally arrives at the bottom of the lift and tells people that the turbo lift is out of service for cleaning and they go to lodge a complaint with the authorities. Telvak and Hyper reach their destination and then wait for Wolf. Hyper look for signs of the relay station. She sees nothing of importance. At the end of the bridge are two security officers. They walk past the officers and the Wolf high fives one of the officer! The officer gives him a dirty look. They reach the entrance of the relay station and Hyper and Wolf enter. Telvak breaks off to look for a back way in.
At this time the rest of the group is heading towards the coms tower. We reach the lifts and cross the bridge without any trouble. As we cross the bridge, we hear blaster shots. Telvak informs us he is under attack and so Dom, Roka, and I head for the alley where we hear the blaster shots. Jix heads for the entrance of the Station. By the time we reach Telvak he has already taken care of the issue and he is stripping them and putting the bodies in a dumpster. I remind him that is was great thinking to take the armor for possible infiltration but they are an all human gang and none of us are human.
Jix disguises himself as a mechanic that does not work in a garage, fabricates a work order for the cafe that is inside the station and deceives the worker into thinking that he is there to fix something of theirs. I am ordered by Dom to head to the cafe in case poodoo hits the fan, so to speak. I sit in a booth close to the mechanical closet with my holsters ready, just in case there is trouble.
Dom finds a taxi terminal to snipe from. He can see right into the mechanical room. He links in through the HUD and sees a security droid the Jix's HUD and Jix puts on his shock gloves. Telmak and Roka links in through one of the gang members HUD by turning the helmet over and looking through the hole. Roka gives Jix the schematics for the droid so that when Jix shocks it will turn off. Dom puts a big circle around the droid's off and puts a sign on it that says "Shock Here". He obviously doesn't get it though, so he opens the back door and let Roka and Telvak in. Roka walks up to the droid and takes out the battery.
The server tower they are looking for is behind a protocol droid. The droid asks him why they are there. Jix attempts to tell it that he is there to work on the server tower but the droid does not believe him. Roka walks up next to Jix and pulls the work order out of his pocket and says "You forgot this, boss". The droids then okays it and go to their charging stations and power down. Roka tries to hack the computer servers but fails once, she succeeds a second time. Like to old saying, "If at first you don't succeed, try again". Roka then reprograms the battery and replaces it in the security droid and they get out. Jix goes out the front, and the rest go out the back. Jix charges the clerk for his "services" and is payed out of petty cash. We all walk out of the cafe one at a time, to not arouse suspicion. I guess this counts as a mission accomplished, though not a conventional win...
