The Adventures of The Typhoon

Where it all began.

Our “heroes” wrap up some of their shopping on planet Kabal while the captain and owner of the ship Dean went to meet a contact of Kagesh to give him his monthly payment of 400 credits so that he could keep his ship leaving him with only 3000 credits in debt to Kagesh and his boss Zordo. With everyone’s shopping done they left the planet after picking up exotic spices and holotapes that they were commissioned to deliver to Glova in the Glova system. Not wanting to appear suspicious Dean decided to buy some plasmaberries since they cost nearly nothing to purchase and there was a surplus of them in the local market due to the unusually good harvest this year. With their “special” delivery item loaded by Nix Nix’s B-1 lifter droid they left Kabal and made their 4 day trip to planet Glova where they made safe landing in the starport city of Drepplin. On their way to Glova they managed to make arrangements to sell the “special” cargo and even managed to find themselves a buyer for their plasmaberries.

Comments

After meeting Inspector Smitken of the Drepplin port import inspector. After paying a 50 credit filing charge they were told they would be charged a 45,000 credit levy for the plasma berries. Not wanting to pay such an ridiculous price for delivering some berries as well as deliver their cargo they went back onto the ship and took off for another nearby town where they landed and were charged only 20,000 credits in taxes. Agreeing that this port was better than the 45,000 credits that they were getting charged at Drepplin. Deciding that it was a good idea to look for a job in this town they headed made their way through the dock bay only to be cut off by Borke, the purchaser of their merchandise that they brought with them. After talking for a bit and giving them a warning about the danger of getting charged 15,000 credits if the cargo were to get impounded.

Where it all began.
 

Denero, Nix nix, and Ronin walked into town passing by The Dive bar, the hang out for the lower end of the social standing. 1 to 2 fights breaking out every hour on the weekday is a common occurrence and 5-6 fights every hour on the weekend was also a common occurrence. They then entered Borke’s Cantine. Denero walked up to the bartender and asked to see Borke. It took a bit of convincing before the bartender went back to speak with Borke about letting them see him. 10 minutes later the bartender came back and let the group know that he couldn’t meet with them at this time and to come back later. Upon finding that out they noticed a man off in a booth drinking a glass of bourbon. Denero walked over to him and struck up a conversation with him talking about their troubles on this planet and learned that his name was Captain Trask Lucan, a light freighter pilot just like Denero. After leaving the Cantine they made their way over to the Orchid where Denero managed to convince the bartender Robert to tell him about any possibilities of a job that would pay a decent amount of money. Robert told them about a corrupt politician that was looking for some people to clean up an eye witness that had seen him do a deal with a small time crime lord. When Denero asked if he knew the identity of the politician Robert said no but he could tell him if he contacted his body guard Writ Tsall they could probably get in contact with the politician and that he frequented The Dive bar to boast about his exploits.

Where it all began.
 

With the connection they needed to possibly land a job, the group left The Orchid and made their way through the streets back towards The Dive bar. As they rounded the corner of the street they heard the sound of breaking glass where they saw a man with brownish blonde hair, green eyes and a horribly beaten face and busted up arm laying on the arm for a few seconds before getting up and hobbling away as quickly as he could. A couple of seconds later a short but very muscular gamorrean walked out of the bar armed to the teeth with vibro weapons and a manhunter pistol strapped to his leg. Looking around for the man that had just gotten tossed out of the bar he asked the group if they saw which direction a guy who was just out here had gone. Denero after hearing from the gamorrean who the man was tried to mislead the gamorrean by saying he went in the direction that they had just come in while Ronin said that he went away from the group and around the corner to the right. Looking between the two the gamorrean decided to follow the directions of a fellow warrior. The group decided to follow after the gamorrean in hopes that they could convince him not to kill the man that they needed to talk to get their job but the gamorrean only ensured them that he would still be alive in the end. As they made their way to the corner Ronin decided to catch up to the gamorrean and asked him that he leaves Writ at least in the condition to talk but once again the gamorrean gave no promise that he would guarantee that Writ would be able to talk but he would at least leave his face alone. Pleased with at least that much Ronin and the gamorrean rounded the corner where Writ was waiting for them and tried to shoot the Gamorrean who was previously beating him. Ronin and the Gamorrean nimbly dodged the shot and in a flash the gamorrean had stepped in and let loose a wicked right upper cut into Writ’s diaphragm lifting the man six inches off the ground before striking Writ in the head with a wicked left hook causing him to rotate a full time around crashing to the ground with a loud thud. Picking up Writ by the collar of his shirt the gamorrean started landing strong rights to Writ’s torso till he had broken all of his ribs as Denero and Nix nix made it around the corner not to long after the gamorrean started to just let loose his flurry of right body blows. Not too long after coming to a stop Borke came jogging around the corner calling out to the group since he needed to speak with them. Borke approached the group ignoring the gamorrean and Writ who was almost unconscious at this point from the beating that he had taken from the imposing gamorrean. Telling them that he had a job offer for them and it would provide enough money that it would pay for the taxes that were levied against them. Finding this out the group decided that they no longer needed Writ to get them a job and upon hearing this the gamorrean hit Writ with a hard right straight to the forehead of Writ whose head bounced off the wall not too far from him and slumped to the ground unconscious, no longer able to take the pain from all the punches.

Where it all began.
 

Borke lead the three back to his Cantina where he took them to a booth in a secluded area where he told him what he wanted them to do to earn the credits they needed. “Down the street, there is a big warehouse. In this warehouse is some merchandise I need recovered. The man that purchased it from me has not paid. If I can get it back, I can sell it to someone that will pay fair market value, and then I can loan you the money you need to get your ship out of threat of impound.” After questioning Burke a bit about the job that they were about to take on they found out they were retrieving antique holo-tapes, not unlike the ones that they had brought in on their ship. They were also told that it was being kept in a small safe inside the warehouse and to help them guide them to it he gave them a small rough map that would help them get to the room that they needed to get to the holo-vids. Borke also gave them a warning not to piss off the gamorrean named Bruce Testa that they were with not too long ago since he’s was a former shock boxing champion that accidentally killed his opponent in the ring and was subsequently kicked out of the circuit for doing so. Now armed with this knowledge they started talking amongst themselves about possibly hiring on the former shock boxer as a companion to bring along with them in their adventures as the muscle of the group should things get too close for their capabilities.

Where it all began.
 

Deciding that it would be wise to scope out the warehouse that they were going to try to rob later that day to get the holo-vids. Leaving the Cantina they walked down the street towards the warehouse which turned out to actually be a small two story mansion that had a sign out front that read “New Republic Embassy” though the new was a small holo-sign that flickered due to some small shorts in it due to the weather,as well as three small landing pads to the right with the middle one being occupied by a light freighter named Lucan’s Nightmare, four garrisons off to the left, a four story tall import warehouse above the landing pads, and a speeder bike and a land speeder parked next to each other between the warehouse and the mansion. Ronin walked off to the left to inspect what kind of security they had while Nix Nix went to the right to do the same. Ronin saw the four garrisons and not much more aside from some law enforcement droids but was unsure of whether or not they were activated. Mean while Nix Nix saw the the landing pad where Lucan’s Nightmare rested which was heavily guarded by dozen of human mercenaries while the import depot was only guarded by two law enforcement droids. Nix Nix also noticed the law enforcement droids surrounding the compound with a majority of them being deactivated but still standing up right. As Nix Nix walked along the back of the house he spotted the landspeeder and the speeder bike that was parked between the warehouse and the mansion. Ronin and Nix Nix met up behind the house and discussed what they had seen around the mansion. Mean while Denero walked in through the front door and met up with the owner of the building Robet Makina. After talking with him for a bit and looking around at the insides he offered the groups services as possible security guards for the art pieces that were being displayed in the mansion. After handing Robet Nix Nix’s comm frequency he left the mansion and met up with Ronin and Nix Nix who were waiting for him outside the gates of the embassy where they shared information with one another on their way back to the cantina. Paranoid that people were following after them Ronin looked around the street to see if anyone was following them but did not see anybody. Borke was sitting in a secluded booth where he was talking business with the customer who was going to purchase the holo-vids once they were in his hands once again while Bruce was sitting on a bar stool shoveling down a meal that he had ordered. Seeing the three men come back in again he excused himself from the customer and approached the group where he caught snippits of their conversation and chimed in about how the embassy was essentially empty at night when it came to it’s security.

Where it all began.
 

With this new piece of information provided by Borke the group started to plan a night raid on the embassy with the help of Bruce though it took some convincing before he agreed to join them for free since they offered him a free ride off of Glova where he had been stranded for far too long in his opinion. With their plan made ready it was five hours before they could start their operation to steal the holo-vid from the safe in the embassy. Ronin went off to The Dive to earn some extra credits since he didn’t have any extra money on him nor did the other two. Upon his arrival and talking to the owner he landed a job as a bouncer to help ensure that the fights that broke out were kept to a minimum when it came to the damage to the bar. While Ronin was working at The Dive, Nix Nix and Denero returned to the ship where Nix Nix got to work on upgrading Ronin’s T-21 repeating blaster and HSB-200 for more damage while Denero did his own thing in the ship. As the night wore on many fights broke out in The Dive but due to Ronin’s interference the damage was kept to a minimum aside when Bruce was involved in the fights. With the time of the operation approaching Nix Nix and Denero left the ship and made their way back to the city where they arrived at the Dive where Ronin and Bruce were standing waiting for the two of them. After checking their gear the group headed off to the mansion where Bruce stabbed a vibro-shiv into the gates lock and broke it before opening it up and walking in like he did nothing wrong. The group followed in behind him except for Denero who entered last and closed the gate behind them to put up the illusion that there was nothing wrong with the gate. The group easily made their way through the compound to the mansion where Nix Nix easily picked the lock to enter the mansion. Upon entering the mansion they started to sneak their way up to his office being lead by Denero and once again Nix Nix had to pick the lock of the office door to get into the office. In the office it took a bit of searching before Ronin located the safe hidden beneath a painting and called Nix Nix over to crack the safe. As soon as the door on the safe was starting to open the door to the office was flung open and all the lights were turned on.

Where it all began.
 

An entire platoon of republic soldiers flooded the room and aimed their rifles at the group to make sure that they didn’t pull their weapons and told them to put their hands in the air. Once the group complied the men in front of the door split apart and Ambassador Makina walked in looking at the group. Being the fair man that he was he gave them a chance to explain what they were doing here. Denero tried to bluff his way through the situation by saying they were trying to test his security system by breaking in and said that it could use improving, but Makina knew otherwise since he knew about the situation with their ship so he gave them another chance. Denero continued to try to bluff his way out of the situation and the ambassador was starting to lose his patience with them. Raising his arm up he was getting ready to give the order to fire when Ronin stepped forward and told him the truth about why they had broken into his office. The ambassador exclaimed “I knew it! That two-faced son-of-a-rancor!” After yelling obscenities for a few minutes he managed to calm himself down and explain the situation of what was going on. He informed them that the Republic was aware that the possibility of Glova being an important planet along a trade route that a possible alliance was going to try to steal from the Republic. They had suspected that one of the planets in the sector was the one that they were targeting and now with what had happened they were sure that Glova was going to be the target but they were unsure when the possible alliance would have tried to take over.

Where it all began.
 

With the situation explained to the group Makina offered them to join in the raid of the Planetary Governor Tegist Byrg and should they help him he would lift the tax levy on their cargo so that they would not have to pay it and would be able to sell the cargo for pure profit. It only took a couple seconds of discussion amongst the group before they agreed to help the Ambassador raid the Governor’s mansion. With the agreement of their help he informed them that the raid would occur the day after next so they could prepare their own gear while he got his own men ready to fight the governor’s forces. With everything settled Makina left the office with his men following out behind him and not too long after the group left as well with Denero and Nix Nix returning to the ship while Ronin went to The Dive with Bruce where Ronin worked another eight hours and earned another sixty-two credits from him before heading back to the ship where he rested up for the day. During the second day Denero sold the plasma berries and split the profit amongst the group each receiving 2,560 credits from the sales of the fruit and bought himself a blast vest while Nix Nix remained on the ship and worked on upgrading the groups weapons and armor till he retired to sleep. On the day of the raid Nix Nix finished the upgrading of most of the groups weapons and armor. The night of the raid the group charged in following right behind Ambassador Makina to capture the planetary governor. Thinking quickly when they saw the governor running from his mansion with twelve body guards protecting him as he ran towards Lucan’s Nightmare Ronin tossed the stun grenade that he carried with him to Bruce to throw at the group. After catching the grenade Bruce threw it with great accuracy placing it at the feet of the planetary governor where it went off and knocked out all but four of the bodyguards that were escorting the governor who was unconscious on the ground. Ronin then pulled out his pistol and took three shots at the remaining bodies guards killing them with Denaro following up and killing the last bodyguard. With the prime objective taken care of Bruce veered off from the rest of the group to start his own entertainment of massacring the rest of the troops of the governors.

Where it all began.
 

With the planetary governor under arrest Makina informed the group that the governor would be go on trial for various charges and the pouch that he was carrying with them held important information about possible strong holds that the alliance would be using as well as the forces that would be placed each individual base as well as safe havens that Byrg could have used to hide himself and Makina decided that they would raid the hideouts in search of any contraband or more information on the alliance that was starting to form. After the group had reformed and made their way back into town to do a concentrated search for Borke they found that he had slipped onto a ship during the conflict and was headed for Kabal. Not really caring anymore about him the group returned to the ship for some well deserved rest.
