Rem and BC carefully lower the Jakko/Pennyworth down into docking position over Lugweg's wrecked ship. Give me a PilotingDex check w/adv (b/c BC is co-pioloting) DC17 because in atom docking is not easy...
Rhyywhaaca easily navigates the northwestern streets of Hanna City thanks to skillful direction from Aevar. As the trio continues in a generally northeasterly direction Klulvae notices a sign reading, "Barbican Hill - 20 KM". Additionally Klulvae notices a weird thrumming sound.
While Klulvae didn't know really anything about mechanics, he assumed that a thrumming sound was a bad thing. As Ryywhaaca continued to navigate under Aevar's supervision, he searched around, looking for the source of the thrumming noise [Perception of 19].
Rem-Jas spots is friend's crashed ship by following a trail of debree. It's lodged into the side of a cliff, with rocks and rubble all around. "Nonono.... This can't be good." he says as he swings back around to land the ship. It cruises down onto the cold rock, lightly touching down on the ground [Piloting of 24]. With the ship parked, he barks out to BC-9, "BC! I need you to go grab Ludweg and whomever his friend is. Son, go grab him a pair of oxygen masks so Ludweg and his friend can breathe as BC carries them over." A hint of desperation lingers in his voice, as the adrenaline causes his breathing to quicken.
As Klulvae looks around and tries to pinpoint the source of the strange thrumming noise he slowly realizes that the sound is coming from above them. He tries to reposition himself to see around the roof of the land speeder and get look at what's overhead. Gazing into the dark sky above them the rodian sees nothing at first but as the wookie turns west and the moon shifts position Klulvae suddenly notices a dark form obscure the moon briefly. He realizes in the next moment that the briefly revealed dark form in the air above them also seems to align with the strange thrumming sound sound.
"Affirmative Bravo." the battle droid says as it moves toward the airlock taking the oxygen masks from Son on the way out. The airlock seals behind BC before the droid opens the hatch and springs out. Springing from the Jakko's open airlock on to the body of the wrecked ship the droid shimmies over and across the hull to the downed ships air lock and activates the mechanism, disappearing inside the airlock and subsequently the other ship. Once inside BC-09 HK-00037 searches out the remaining life forms on the ship. "Organics, this unit has been sent to rescue and retrieve all remaining units from this vessel. Place these over your respiratory orifices, and insulate your feeble chassises against this planets external temperatures." as he says this he passes out the respirator devices. "once you are ready you will proceed with this unit to the aft airlock for evacuation."
"Rhhoarwhuk? Ghrrssuhh Roohaah Wrrompff Raaahg!!" says the wookiee moving his arms around and hitting a couple of times the console of the speeder. ( "Being followed?" This piece of junk is for sightseeing nor for chases!" )
Klulvae nods his head, looking up at the black figure for the briefest of moments before it disappears once again. "Yeah, that's a chaser, whatever it is. Maybe an assassin droid." He looks between the two of them until a thought comes to mind. "Aevar. You have special eyes! Does our vision permit you to see the figure through the Force? The more you can concentrate on it, the better."
"And we might want to pull off to the side of the road and take some cover, in case it launches a missile at us."
With the ship securely parked, Rem-Jas dashed to the airlock, eagerly awaiting his friend's return.
"I don't know. Beyond 10 metres, most stuff is pretty vaguely defined by the Force. If we pull over, we should at least be able to confirm that its chasing one or all of us. Its highly likely, given our new bounty, but we could be wrong."
Aevar moves his hand to the lightsaber hilt in his pocket, a nervous habit.
Aevar notices a tunnel on the map and directs the wookie toward it. They continue on driving as before making their way toward and then into the tunnel. As the the land speeder nears the opposite end of the tunnel they pull over and Ryywhaaca kills the lights the three men inside watch the mouth of the tunnel some 100 meters ahead and listen intently for the thrumming noise Klulvae had heard earlier. A minute passes, then two, soon it stretches into 5 and there seems to be no sign of any one or anything at the mouth of the tunnel as the 10 minute mark approaches they are starting to feel a sense of relief rise. However as Ryy is about to start the speeder back up a dark shape descends infant of the tunnel mouth. All three crewmates look on as some sort of black ship descends in front of them it's smaller than the Jakko, but larger than a strarfighter. As the light spilling out from the tunnel washes over the ships descending form the only discernible detail on the otherwise uniformly flat black surface of the ship is the red emblem of the Black Sun emblazoned on the front of the ships hull.
"Let me do the talking, and do what I tell you to do." Klulvae warns the two of them. Still wearing his space helmet, Klulvae steps out of the speeder, moving about 15 feet away from it in order to put distance between the two. Looking up at the Black Sun ship, he shouts, "Okay, okay! We'll stop trying to steal the speeder." he cocks his head to the side, shouting at Ryywhaaca and Aevar, "Whaacerrie! Vallaie! Leave the speeder alone!"
"See? It's all yours, mysterious fellas!" [Deception of 14]
The wookiee growls while he walks away from the speeder and holds his bowcaster. They were on disavantage but he looked up to the entrance of the tunnel. Perhaps it could collapse if properly fired. If the rocks didn't hit the ship at least they could have cover and run like troowacks in a hunt.
The ceiling seems fairly well constructed, even a well placed shot would at most create a minor amount of small to mid sized rubble, enough to cause a traffic accident perhaps but probably not enough to down this starship.
Before Aevar leaves the speeder, he takes a moment to focus on the ebb and flow of the Force within the speeder [Casting Mage Hand]. He leaves the vehicle, standing next to Klulvae, but out of the path of the speeder. Suddenly, the lights start flashing and the windscreen wipers start going as Aevar presses buttons and levers inside the speeder using the Force.
To our readers, I regret to inform you that we have decided to end this Star Wars saga. We hope that it will act as a source of inspiration for those who wish to run a Star Wars campaign in the future!
