Vex had a few injections at hand that stilled the Wookie's stomach slightly. He was sure he had smelt the odour before but was not quite sure where. It seemed there were other troubles brewing onboard though. Pash communicated that there were various warnings appearing on the VDU in the cockpit that he could make head not tail of, except for the low fuel flashing sign; seemed they could have done with highjacking the ship a few hours later.
On the whole the gang worked out all the problems pretty well, they managed to disconnect the tracking device (thus saving themselves a warm welcome when coming out of hyperspace), they got rid of the smell which turned out to be rotting Wookie pelts (which were given a respectful exit out the air lock), turned the gammorian opera music and klaxons off, found a quantity of credits and a Twi' lek prisoner whom had been destined to be given to Teemo the Hutt but was still in the bounty hunter's hold. A mysterious few pieces of chitin were also found.
But obviously it was the old Twi'lek who caused the most curiosity. It turned out that he was called Bur'an B'an and was high up the organisation of a small band of rebel fighters on the mining world of Ryoth. Exactly who they were rebelling against and their number seemed to be up for debate, but as Ryoth was the closest, cheapest planet to get fuel and not draw too much attention to themselves coupled with promises of help from B'an meant that the gang were quickly heading there. In fact the boost from the astro-navigation update they had managed to acquire on Mos Shuuta meant that they got there ahead of a few bounty hunters who were hot on their trail since Teemo had figured out that the mass defection and the missing bounty and ship were somehow linked - even Hutts can piece together such thing.
With help from B'an the landing eventually went smoothly and the gang were introduced to the rest of the resistance cell. With a few promises of help our earnest characters had soon agreed to help out the Twi'leks at the nearby Ryll mines where a bit of not too friendly coercion seemed to be taking place which was forcing the Twi'leks out of business. However, as is often the way, the road to a comfy nights sleep before going to right the wrongs of the universe were interupted by droid given news that some dodgy figures seemed to have landed at the space port from Mos Shuuta; and by inference from Teemo... Paranoia does not, as we all know, mean that they ARE NOT out to get you and our favourite characters decided to go and and see if they could spot the probable bounty hunters. Trying to do anything inconspicuously on a predominantly Twi'lek world with a grumpy and still a bit pukey Wookie was not very likely to be successful.
What followed was a classic wild west shoot out happening in a seedy underground shopping mall. With only minor injury our friends took the bounty hunters out and even managed to get a prisoner. Yanking him into the bar they were staying at one could be excused into thinking that all was going to plan. Unfortunately the cleared streets and very loud alarm and sirens possibly pointed to another version of how well it was going ...
