This AAR covers three sessions. I have been
delinquent on doing these reports.
Also all these sessions were short. We have a hard
stop at 8:30 pm.
We added two new players
Kat - Playing Koyi Doneeta, a Twi’lek acrobat and
Tom - Playing The Amazing Will Wiley, a Human
raconteur and sharp shooter.
Both characters are survivors of a space going circus
that was captured and consumed by the Castle of Karfek
The original batch of PCs heads for the West Pole and
finds a lobby with elevators.
There are also partial war-bots welded to the walls.
The PCs begin a fire fight against the droids.
In level sub Alpha, Wiley and Koyi watch the PCs
hoping to find rescue. Koyi and Wiley cut the power
to the lobby, disabling all powered equipment in the
Jason, Sti, Rutger and Al'Tair are suddenly in the
dark, listening to huge banging crashes as the
staircases in the fire escape plummet into the bowls
of the station.
(The Stairs were cut from the walls and then
re-mounted using magnetic locks. At will Karfek Rom
could cut the power and drop intruders to their
The upper deck PCs, unaware that they have help elect
to go to the administration center on Alpha deck,
hoping to be able to unlock the docking bay doors.
Easily avoiding traps and monsters, Koyi and Wiley
effectively have the run of the station.
Koyi and Wiley scavenge for a method to interface with
the station systems and communicate with the upper
All they can find is a Hello-Kitty pocket video game,
so their messages to the PCs on the upper deck are
seen as Hello-Kitty appearing on various screens and
cutely announcing various warnings.
The upper deck PCs disbelieve these warnings or find
them too vague top be useful.
After crossing a cinematic electricity trap, the
Upper deck PCs find the Administration center's
After a good deal of discussion, Al'Tair uses the
light saber loaned to him by Josh to cut through the
locked door to the control center.
Josh elects to try to cut through the bulkhead
adjacent to the door. Josh cuts through the power
feed to the control center, which explodes, injuring
him, and cutting off power to the control center.
After some effort, Al'Tair discovers that the door to
the Admin Control center has been barricaded.
The PCs cut through the blockage to find a dark
control center and bodies.
A previous adventuring group was pinned in the control
center and would up dying of thirst, starvation and
their wounds. The PCs loot the dead adventurers, but
find their goal stymied by lack of power to the
Then the PCs find their own escape cut off.
Security-Droids appear in the hallway and, although
mangled by fire from the PCs the Security-Droids cut
them off by spraying the corridor with a burning
napalm like substance.
The PC retreat into the control center, as heat and
oxygen depletion begin to encroach.
Koyi and Wiley know that the best route off the
station lies with the PCs and the Ponderous and that
they probably can't fly the Ponderous on their own.
So, locating a sealed emergency exit, Koyi and Wiley
begin firing their blasters into the exit door.
Koyi and Wiley meet the PCs they link up on deck
sub-alpha and flee.
Escaping the fire, Rutger is pinned in a closing
bulkhead door (These doors close automatically to seal
off damaged areas in the station.)
The PCs fight to manhandle the door open and free
The PCs find a store room with emergency rations,
medikits and other supplies for recovering from an
As the PCs are about to dig into the emergency
rations, Al'Tair spots subtle clues that the rations
have been tampered with. Al'tair discovers that the
emergency rations have been drugged.
Utilizing improvised cooking tools, Al'Tair
neutralizes the drugs and much of the taste and
texture in the emergency rations and they are safely
consumed by the PCs.
The PCs puzzle about how to cut the power to the
magnetic seal which holds them in the station.
Koyi and Wiley know the main power generators are in
level sub-beta, but they have not ventured there as
the traps becomes increasingly dangerous and annoying.
Sti wants to head for level sub-beta to try and cut
power and free his ship.
Koyi and Wiley lead the way.
Part of the way there, the PCs happen into one of two
anchor points for the accelerator rings that circle
the exterior of the station.
This is a tube which runs from delta level all the way
out to the rings - effectively the traditional Star
Wars bottomless pit with no safety rails.
The door slams shut behind them and the walkway begins
to retract. More, a huge fire ball ignites at the
bottom of the shaft and begins rolling upwards towards
Wiley turns and casually hacks the lock, rolling a
heroic 31 success. the door snaps open and the
walkway returns to it's fully extended position.
The PCs exit the shaft and close the doot just in time
for the huge fire ball to roll up the shaft without
Looking around, Rutger discovers a substation monitor
with a terminal. With this terminal they have a
chance to access the whole network of the station.
Wiley sits down and triggers a trap in the keyboard.
A pin pokes Wiley.
Al'tair is unable to determine if the needle was
poisoned so he treats Wiley as if he has just been
Rutger sits down and rolls his own heroic success to
hack the station systems.
Rutger battles with Karfek Rom for control of the
Rutger turns off the magnetic seal on docking bay
number two. Then rolling a second heroic success,
Rutger scrambles Karfek Rom's inputs so when he tries
to turn on system X he activates system Y instead.
The PCs turn and pelt for Docking bay 2, while lights
turn on and off and the fire sprinklers come on.
Underneath the Docking bay, the PCs find a group of 20
secrity bots who stand at attention as they approach.
The ownership and authorization for giving orders has
been turned off.
Rutger hacks the Security bots and takes control of
The PCs climb up through a semi hidden, semi
barricaded access door in the service bay attached to
the docking bay. Moving stealthily, the PCs find
over 100 cyber zombies 4 Franks (Frankenstien
monsters, referred to as Super Zombies earlier) and
The Poderous, as per Sti's previous order is hovering
out of reach of the Zombies and bots.
The PCs decided to line up their 20 security bots and
conduct a frontal assault to reach the Ponderous.
[Game note - here we had a decision to make.
Thumbnail the combat or play it out. We elected to
thumbnail the combat. The PCs rolled a fort save
versus a dc of 25. for every point they missed the DC
by they got 1d6 of damage. The Players could earn
bonus points for an exciting and detailed descriptions
of their actions during the combat.]
Rutger and Sti were pounded flat by the Cyber-Zombies,
However Josh owned the combat, and Al'tair skated
through without getting touched.
Koyi danced and tumbled through the Cyber Zombies, not
getting touched, either.
Wiley shot and dodged his way to the ship.
On the ship, Al'Tair roused Sti with force healing
Josh took the upper quad cannon and blew out the
Docking bay doors.
A pain wracked Sti and his R2 piloted the Ponderous
awat from the Castle of Karfek Rom in an explosion and
a hail of cyber zombies, franks and security bots.
the PCs entered hyper space and flew to Correlia.
A day later, the PCs arrived at
Landing on Corellia proved almost too much for the
abused Ponderous. She landed in unflyable condition.
Sti and the PCs went about negotiating a deal for the
repair of their ship.
This was an expensive proposition. The Ponderous needs
a lot of work.
In the end the PCs were able to negotiate a 1/2
discount in exchange for their stolen air van, looted
starship tools and access to the technical
specifications of the Ponderous.
Koyi and Wiley began searching for accommodations.
Koyi is looking to exchange dancing for room and board
but is disappointed at the reception.
Corellia rules the Twi'lek homeworld with an Iron
fist. Twi’leks and other non-humans are considered
second class citizens on Corellia.
Koyi has run into the prejudice and is not having fun.
Madeline and Al'Tair go to the Jedi Temple on Corellia
(Blue) and tell of their encounter with the monstrous
The Jedi Temple is willing to put the crew of the
Ponderous up as guests of Al'Tair, Madeline and Josh.
Koyi and Willie do not like this idea.
However, Jon Hampton is fascinated with the two
circus people. He intends to help them find better
accommodations, and learn their scandalous ways.
There we ended for 02-03-2008
