Hope You’re Feeling Better
Conflict! After our heroes left the pirate captain with information on the whereabouts of the Rodian’s artifact, Braddock H’san, famed scientist and researcher, took our heroes’ stash of his corrupted drug and jettisoned it out of the airlock. Before doing so, however, Keltar, the surly ambassador of Toydaria, tried to fight Braddock, so addicted to the drugs was he.
Luckily, Tarak the Second, a loyal servant of the Scorekeeper, was on hand to help keep Keltar down and out of trouble. After successfully jettisoning the drugs, the group continued to travel in hyperspace towards Bespin.
Let the Children Play
Before dropping out of hyperspace, the Rodian asked our heroes for more help in recovering her artifact. Keltar quickly offered the group’s services at a hefty rate, but Galactus Fincher, brilliant mechanic, sensed a golden opportunity and asked the Rodian to a wager. The Rodian accepted, and after a quick toss of the dice, Galactus had given away the group’s services for no fee at all.
After some yelling by Keltar, our heroes landed on Bespin and wasted no time seeking out a casino. While Galactus and her trusty droid went gambling, Tarak and the Rodian split off to search for the artifact. During this time, Keltar and Braddock went to the bar and after a short conversation, were able to resolve their differences in a deal. During this, Keltar noticed that a strange woman was watching them, and the two left to investigate.
She’s Not There
Braddock and Keltar chased the strange woman, who was in fact a Dathomiri, but lost her as she fled into the slums. Summoning the group to his side, Braddock explained what he has seen, and after some debate, the Rodian offered that she might be the best bet to find her artifact.
The group followed her into the slums, and aside from the blatant poverty, our heroes also encountered a large number of drug addicts. Braddock, concerned for the well-being of others, asked the group to help him track down the source of the drugs. Our heroes, ever virtuous, agreed, and soon came to a night club in the middle of the slums.
Upon reaching the night club, our heroes witnessed a human flying out of the window of the second story. After he fell, Braddock rushed to his side and saw to his injuries and immediately knew that his corrupted drug was here. Braddock went inside the club to find the source while the rest tended to the man’s wounds, but Braddock soon attracted the wrong kind of attention and was accosted by some drug addicts.
Battle broke out, and thanks to the droid and Tarak, the drug addicts were quickly put down. However, before our heroes could interrogate their lone prisoner further, the Dathomiri appeared and executed him, demanding the artifact called the Key of Exile from the Rodian. The droid opened fire, and the Dathomiri fled, leaving our heroes with more questions than answers.
