The Corrupting Darkness

Episode 27 - Shadow Games

The One Without Christian and Cherice :(

Jettisoned Escape Pod

As the team came out of hyperspace and in view of the ship belonging to Ayla’s father, they hailed it in order to let them know they would be docking.

They were greeted by the peppy voice of Siar Uundune, who excitedly told them to dock.

As they started to move, one of the ships escape pods jettisoned. A quick scan showed 3 life signs, one was decided by matter of elimination to be Hesh Vah. While the other 2 were revealed to be 2 Mos Eisley crazies Abin had knocked out cold and forgotten to remove from the ship.

Allasars ship activated a tractor beam and pulled in the pod

No Escape Pods Here

When interrogated about the escape pods, Siar Uundune denied again and again that there had been a tractor beam activation, and adamantly assuring the group she had not seen an escape pod.

She did however, say that if there was anywhere it would have went, it would be the malfunctioning disposal unity.

Walkway of Death

The group suited up in space walking suits so as to traverse the unsealed Disposal Unit, and walked out onto a narrow walkway. Looking down they could see a plummet of nearly 2 miles, leading to a sloped bottom that led to 3 smaller tunnels, while above there were nearly 2 miles up to a large tunnel that led towards this shaft.

The group decided to walk up. 10 minutes later, a large batch of small-medium sized rocks came down the larger tunnel above. They stopped beside them, ominously floating there for a few moments, before turning their sharpest ends to them, and hurling themselves at the group.

The group was mostly ok, except for Ven who focused on, and failed to, force pushing them away, was completely unprotected and took the full brunt of the rocks. He fell off the walkway, free falling to the ground.

Abin jumped down and was able to grab Ven, while Yundarr who had climbed down a bit already, was able to get a hold of Abins foot.

Eventually most were able to get up before the walkway started retract into the wall.

The group used everything from swords, to claws to their bare fists to slide down the 2 mile long tunnel, eventually splitting up to check all 3 tunnels for their missing friend.

Enter The Biomes

Dr1v3r, Ayla and Abin landed in the forest Biome where Ayla first met Dr1v3r.

Yundarr and Ven ended up in a Desert biome where Ven had been once before.

Junk, by himself, landed in a snow biome.

The Forest Biome

Dr1v3r, Ayla and Abin, made the walk to Dr1v3rs old hut, but noticed, oddly enough, that someone had a fire going outside it. Abin caught sight of the man, and group met Dah Saief

After a short talk, Dah eventually trusted that the group would not attack him, and together they made their way to the Desert biome, led by the memory of Ayla and Dr1v3r.

The Desert Biome

Upon landing in the Desert biome, Yundarr and Ven saw in front of them a rather large group of what would turn out to be Sand People.

Behind them was a cliff face, so they elected to get high ground before having a run in with the collected group of Tatooine locals.

When they got close enough, half of the group walked towards us, and Yundarr let out a nice friendly and welcoming growl, which immediately put the sand people on guard and into attack mode.

Luckily before any shots were fired, Yundarr showed an act of non aggression by taking his bowcaster and laying it on the ground. This small act was able to quell the Sand Peoples fears, and after a show of their non aggression, the group continued on their trek through the sand.

After this, Junk arrived, and together the 3 of them went back into the snow biome Junk had come from, to search for their friend Hesh Vah.

The Snow Biome

The group of Junk, Ven and Yundarr climbed the snowy mountain tops, searching for any sign of Hesh Vah.

Junk spotted the missing escape pod, with very little damage, and 2 dead bodies inside. but Hesh Vah was missing. And there were no foot prints or marks of any kind.

Eventually they found a small den of Wampas. Junk elected to kill them and search their cavern den, while Yundarr and Ven searched for more signs.

Nothing was found and they returned to Junk, who had met up with Abin, Ayla and Dr1v3r as well.

Junk found Hesh Vah’s lightsaber, and as the group were deciding on setting up camp, a massive claw crashed through the ground below them.

The Group With The Mecha Krayt Dragon Tattoo

The ground caved in, and the group found themselves falling into the throne room, in front of them, the largest, most insane thing they have ever witnessed. A massive Krayt Dragon, with Cortosis implants, and replacements. Even his scales were weaved with Cortosis.

When the best went on it’s hindlegs to intimidate the group, Abin was able to keep his cool and notice the beasts stomach had a red force fielded prison cell in it. Dr1v3r noticed the person inside it was none other then the missing Hesh Vah.

The group battled the massive dragon. After a few short attacks, the Mecha Krayt Dragon opened it’s mouth, and slowly a light started to form and shine out, eventually erupting into a powerful beam weapon aimed right at them, hitting all of them. But visibly damaging the creature, leaving smoke and loud screams to make it evident that it hurt him just as bad as it hurt them.

It knocked out Ven, Dr1v3r and Yundarr.

While Junk and Ayla shot it from afar, Abin raced towards the beast, fearlessly taking it’s attention and making cuts and swings at it with a lightsaber.

Saving Private Hesh Vah

While the others kept it busy, Ven was able to use the force and wake himself up, he crawled weakly and wearily over to Yundarr, and stabbed him with one of his stimpacks, bringing the Wookie back to the land of the living.

The wookie stood up, and then did something no one, but Abin, could have anticipated.

He pulled out his staff, and while the ends of it miraculously turned themselves off, revealing a double bladed green lightsaber, The wookie used his other hand to pull a free a large piece of ice from the biome above, and in impale it in the back of the creature.

The creature arched backwards, landing stomach up, giving Junk the chance to rescue the unconscious Hesh Vah

Blowing Up For Real Now

After this, the creatures throat started to glow with the same light as they had seen before, it started to pierce through it’s scales and cortosis weaving.

The group ran away, with the help of Siar Uundune who opened and closed blast doors, but it was not enough, the blast caught both Yundarr and Ayla, knocking both unconscious, and completely breaking apart the ship on both sides of the team.

A Rescue and a Mystery

The group was stuck on a floating hallway in space. Hesh Vah was unconscious with no space suit and thus no way to breathe. Besides that both Ayla and Yundarr were out cold, with no way to help, and requiring the nearly dead himself, Ven to hold both, lest they float way. Things were looking dim.

When all of a sudden, the Mynock flew into site, piloted by Liora Satelli, she picked them up, with Siar Uundune waiting for them on the ramp.

Before entering the ship, Ayla asked Siar about her father (which I now realize was impossible, but I guess Ayla woke up lol). When the name Allasar was mentioned, she started to look dizzy, whispering it a number of times before completely fainting.

Ven pushed Yundarr and Ayla into the ship before grabbing Siar and going into the ship with them, followed by Abin and Junk.

All was well, or as well as it could be, until they realized Dah Saief was not in the ship with them. He was in the hallway, but now, he had just disappeared.

Abin, who had started to be weary of the mysterious jedi, concluded he may have been the one responsible for this, and the screen faded to black, till the next episode.

Comments

Great session guys!

It’s a shame Christian and Cherice couldn’t make it, but having Hesh be kidnapped worked really well for the story and character/team development. So a sad thing turned into the best it could be :)
