Back in space once again the intrepid crew of the Spaceball Eagle One needed to get their plans in order, but were plagued with questions: Why did Czerka destroy the GSI corporate space station back in the first episode? Who is this Jana Kara? And why did we let Miandin have a flame thrower?
While the ship’s fire suppression systems worked overtime to put out the cargo bay, the crew decided on where to go next. Czerka of course seemed like the best place to start to find out about Jana Kara. But how to keep our inquires secret. A quick search on the holonet revealed that the closest Czerka Corp. outpost was located on the Wookie home world of Kashyyyk.
The SBE1 came in for a landing over the densely forested planet of Kashyyyk, to settle on a platform high in the canopy. The crew learned from their holonet search that almost all inhabitants of Kashyyyk live in the canopy of the trees. The indigenous beasts of Kashyyyk become evermore dangerous the lower you go, with the most dangerous living in the shadowlands of the forest floor.
The crew discovered that the landing platform was operated by Czerka and that there was a near by station. Mohntu quickly saw an opportunity for disguise and deceit. After a quick visit to a local costume shop he donned a ragged cloak and pretended to be a beggar near the entrance of the station. However as he was the only vagrant on the platform he was run off almost immediately by the guards.
Alema and Nibbs decided on a much more direct route and applied for jobs at the Czerka station. She and Nibbs were separated during the interview process but both were hired on, although Alema did not see Nibbs for the rest of her first shift.
Joey decided that the rest of the crew were going at this the wrong way and decided to call 1-800-Czerka and ask for Jana Kara’s information directly….which worked.
With the knowledge that Jana Kara was the head of biotech at Czerka and that her office was on Coruscant the crew could be on their way agian…but wait! Where is Nibbs!?!
Never having returned from the Czerka Station the crew got worried…mildly concerned….well they at least went after him. Alema went into work the next day as per usual. Joey, Mohntu, and Miandin posed as exterminators and talked their way in through the front door. Luckily (or unluckily) the Czerka outpost was flooded by giant spiders. The crew fought their way through web and worry as they searched for Nibbs.
They finally found Nibbs in a medical looking facility with several Wookie younglings. Getting an academy award for the line, “It’s time for some catch and release”, Mohntu and the rest sprung the captives and smuggled them out of the station in a trash dumpster. Miandin stayed behind to get the money from the extermination job..
Miandin rejoined the group several minutes later as smoke started curling from the outpost.
The younglings asked to be taken back to their home; a climb down into shadowlands. They had moved out of the canopy as Czerka corp had been capturing the Wookies for manual labor and experiments. Mohntu took Nibbs (who seemed very ill) back to the SBE1 to recover.
The young Wookies lead the rest of the crew down into the trees of Kashyyyk. The climb was tough and treacherous. Joey annoyed everyone by flying around as they climbed. Mohntu attempted to catch up to the group by moving quickly. Apparently fish don’t climb trees very well though. Thankfully the DM didn’t know how to calculate falling damage and he was able to join the group once they reached the Wookie town on the forest floor.
The Wookie elders rewarded the crew for rescuing the youglings and asked if they would rescue the Wookies being held at a near by labor camp. The crew, drunk on being praised for the first time in their adventure, took up the new quest with gusto.
After dealing with the labor camp guards the crew was able to slice into the restraining collars they all wore, and thanks to a critical role they were able to release, not only the Wookies at this labor camp but all the Wookies across Kashyyyk.
The Elders were so happy with this result they granted Mohntu a special reward. One of their tribal healing staffs. Mohntu hoped he would be able to heal Nibbs with such a great and powerful (stick) medical device.
