The End of the Great Clone War

Zalib, the man-trapper

Last time on The Cline Wars. . . .

Brian’s new character, the professor, gives a speech at a university on Coruscant. Afterwards he finds his transport back to his homeworld has been cancelled, as a new threat level has been declared on Coruscant after the attempted assassination of the senator. Receiving a call from Senator Atanna, whose son is a student of the professor’s, he is asked for a favor; to stay with the professor until it’s less dangerous on the capital, and if he can acquire a ship from Marlo the Hutt that’s off the grid.

At Rhemmy’s hangar, Zalib is contacted by Marlo’s representation, who asks what the situation there is. Rhemmy showed up at Marlo’s finally, and was taken captive by them, accused of being a traitor. Rhemmy maintains that he is innocent and that it was another one of Marlo’s men, Vash, who is the traitor. On the bodies at Rhemmy’s hangar, Zalib finds coins with an emblem that corresponds to a gang led by Vash. This doesn’t prove Rhemmy’s innocence, so Marlo requests Zalib search Vash’s apartment, and capture him.

Marlo is unable to provide a ship for the professor, as his resources are too tied up, and the ships that are registered with him are no good, as the assassins know he’s linked with the senator. Rhemmy, desperate to prove his innocence, cuts a deal with the professor; if he helps Zalib bring in Vash, he will give him the name of an acquaintance whom he buys starship supplies from. The party acquires supplies from a bounty hunter in Marlo’s service, including an R-TechApp man trap.

Having picked up Dae’us along the way, the party raids Vash’s apartment. Although he is not home, there are three gang members that the party takes care of. With one gang member held captive, they await the return of Vash. They capture him in the man trap and defeat the rest of his entourage.

Dae’us returns to the Jedi temple, the next morning he is to be a part of the reinforcements sent to Esseles. The rest of the party goes to Marlo’s where they can prove Rhemmy’s innocence. He keeps up his part of the bargain and gives them an address where they can meet his supplier. It turns out to be the Duros Enoll and his multi-limbed droid R0-B1T. They sell the party a new ship.


Sooooo do Daeus and Rhemmy now know each other before the Dark Times game?

Nope, never in the same room together, though he may have heard them use the name Rhemmy.

I came up with this plot hoping you could play. Dae’us was written out of the party, but when we actually played Justin couldn’t make it, so I wrote him back in simply for the sake of the party.

He’s now written out for good, back on Esseles.

I’m getting more okay with the thought of playing Rhemmy in the game. I’ll continue to think on it.

Also I’m considering starting the Dark Times game back up but I think I want to wait until the new FF Star Wars comes out to do so. I don’t like the d20 system – as a DM, it’s way too complicated to come up with characters. Too difficult to arbitrarily decide skill values on the spot if need be – whereas in WoD, I can have a background character with which the party decided to interact a bit more than I had originally planned (for example, the werecat that Ian’s character Bade decided to talk to a few sessions back, when I had merely described him as part of the scenery) be so good at a certain skill, like a dice pool of 7 when it comes to detecting Bade’s approaching demeanor, and call it a day. The Storytelling System really is designed really well around just that – storytelling. Appropriately so.

Anyway, I want to read a little more into the Edge of the Empire rulebook and hopefully wait for the Jedi one as well and use that system if I do the Dark Times game again. I won’t enjoy it at all if I use Saga Edition.
