Dropping into Boz Pity’s atmosphere, upon seeing trouble at Sol Winrels archaeological camp, Stanut deftly lands ‘The Spotted Moon’ inside the damaged electric perimeter fence. CRUMB accesses Xenology databanks, and upon identifying the four beasts as Guf Drolgs is also able to find a weakness in their armour. Zakoor stealthily runs towards cover and Vanos takes a potshot at a wooden box in an attempt to distract the closest creature, narrowly missing Zakoor. Meanwhile, Bril’ attempts to assert his leadership unsuccessfully, as his voice goes unheard in the din of combat. The Group spreads out to take further control of the situation. Upon arrival, Sol was perched on top of his ship, ‘The Lithic’, and in a panic slides off without any grace.
The heat of the battle rises, as Zakoor hacks the closest creature down brutally. Almost immediately after he succumbs to withdrawl hallucinations which manifests as two large flying creatures intent on inflicting great strain on the beefy Maurauder. He narrowly succumbs and loses consciousness due to a great mental strain. As he swings wildly, the battle rages on. Bril’ shoots down another beats while CRUMB and Vanos coordinate to repair the barrier fence before more of the Drolgs can enter the compound.
After the battle, a recovered Zakoor hacks off a Guf Drolg head, commanding CRUMB to wrap it up as Stanut was not at all pleased that the bloody head was going to be dragged onto his ship. That evening, the group is rewarded with a bit of down time and relaxation, as Guf steaks are prepared over an open fire. Another passenger was discovered by by Vanos and CRUMB. Jenica Kahn emerges to confer with Stanut. He has learned that the ’The Thousand Year Eagle has been impounded on Kalkovac. Jenica, a ShipJacker by trade, has been brought along just in case her services were needed.
As the fire burns down low outside, Bril’ finally gets a chance to sit down and discuss his mystery dagger with Sol. While he does not possess any concrete answers, he believes the heirloom is a Darksaber, of which only a few were rumoured to exist during the Clone Wars. However, the weapon is incomplete and Sol is unable to decrypt the glyphs at present.
The next morning they depart, continuing on Stanut’s scheduled delivery job to Sullust.
