The Fall Guys

Framed!

The Drabek job was simple; get in, get out, nothing fancy, nothing special.
It was all going swimmingly, Krusk Facebreaker was watching the door in-case of sudden Imperial Police presence. Alleah Bravedance was keeping the hired security busy with her feminine wiles. While Alleah’s comm and cut out right in the middle of job, it was chalked up to electronic interference due to security measures in the other part of the building she was in. Fizwick Transfall was busy hacking away within the server room, dealing with any electronic security within the estate. Lastly Auk “Osha” Mordeka and Kainan Stormblade broke into the vault to steal the object in question.
Upon their arrival however, they find the vault empty. Not only was the target stolen but the whole vault empty. As the two exited the vault sounds of distant gunfire filled the spaces of the room. As the war cry of raging Orc ended abruptly Kainen and Osha ran for the back door they passed by the server room to warn Fizwick. Who surprisingly was not there, nor was any of his stuff, it was as if he had taken the time to pack it all way, not something he would have done if he was in a hurry to escape the Police.
Reaching the back door the duo bust through only to find over 30 heavily armed ISPD agents pointing their assault blasters at them, and a hover-tank. Deciding to surrender instead of be shot in the street like dogs. The duo were arrested, charged with murder, theft, hacking, and resisting arrest. Their sentence was life imprisonment at the infmous Grey-Rock Maximum Penitentiary.

The Escape, Part 2 & Mirandor
Chapter 1

Convincing the Transport that the prison is under siege and needs help, a small contingent of Imperial Legionnaires come on to the station.
Taking them by surprise the group is able to quickly subdue the Legionaries.
Making their way on board the transport they quickly took out the rest of the crew and captured the ship.
Andronikos Explains that they need to go to The Spire as it has his accounts and will be a safe haven for them.
However the station can teleport, and is never in the same place for long. In order to find it’s location they will need to contact Elarra. A Drow female who runs a bar and bordello on the Planet of Mirandor.
After several jumps they finally arrive on Mirandor where Auk “Osha” Mordeka and Kainan Stormblade take the shuttle to the surface.
After securing a ride through the wilderness the duo come to a small outpost where they Find “Elarra’s” a small bar in the middle of nowhere.
After meeting Elarra, she agrees to give them the information in exchange for removing the Current Imperial Overseer from the planet.
Kainan “Spends” the evening with Elarra, while Osha secures some “BOOMS” from Jost, the bartender.
That night they stay in one of the rooms at Elarra’s. They wake up to find nothing missing, but something added.
Hidden within Osha’s datapad is a small chip of unknown origin and make.
Removing the chip from his datapad, they hang on to it just in case it might come in handy later.
Osha gets his “BOOMS” from Jost, then asks for a something a little different.
The Duo do a little research on the Imperial Compound and decide how they want to accomplish their task.
Osha’s new “BOOMS” come in, a Hell-fire Missile.
Meeting with Gizmon a male gnome who claims to work for Imperial Supply, Osha takes the missile and hides behind the bar, hoping to use it as a bargaining chip if their deal with Elarra goes south.
They get some Imperial Maintenance Uniforms from Elarra and requisition a transport from the local Vehicle Depot.
Arriving at the Compound they hatch a plan to sneak into disguised as maintenance to repair a malfunctioning autodoc.
They basically walk into the compound un-accosted, they repair the the autodoc and add a new feature, 2#‘s of Military Grade C4.
Remotely piloting the Autodoc Osha guides the bot throughout the Habitual sections of the building looking for the Overseer.
Eventually locating him his office after bothering several other officers in the building who had informed security.
Getting stopped by security at the elevator section the little bot attacks one of the security guards with a laser scalpel.
With determination. Osha guides the bot to the overseer’s office while the security guard tries in vain to stop it.

Resupply, The Hacker, The Favor
Chapter 2

The Duo make their way into Cloud9 and are eventually led back to one of the backrooms that appears to be more of an apartment that an office.
The learn that the Andronikos that they know is actually Tasha, a Doppel, and the real Andronikos’ sister-in-law.
Learning ahead of time of the set-up Tasha had volunteered to be arrested in his stead so that he could discover the culprits of the betrayal.
While not much closer than the day he started he has had a hacker contact of his searching for more information.
He instructs the duo to retrieve the hacker as their has been some complications in the Hacker’s Security.
He also requests that they travel up to “The Shop” to discuss a favor from Paku, one of the Syndicates’ many over-bosses, to see if he could release Andronikos’ ships from holding.
After a trip to the Bazaar the boys make their way up to “The Shop,” encountering a young and relationship troubled young receptionist.
Following her instructions down gilded hallways the boys reach a large set of double doors tended by an Oruk. Who then leads them through a large waiting room into an equaly large and lavish office.
Sitting behind a large Darkwood desk sits this almost comically small face, compared to the size of the desk.
He explains that if they do him the favor of delivering a message to someone on Endragar he would have Andronikos’ ship released from holding.
Handing them a cylindrical silver tube covered in an odd unknown script, with the instruction that it must be delivered and that it must be unopened.
After promising Paku to complete the job, the duo complete a few last minute errands before meeting back with Andronikos.
Informing them that his brother Demetrios was going to be joining them he sends them on their way.
Having a pass through the permanent teleport portals Demetrios leads the group to the arid desert world of Ambrant.
After a bit of walking through the hot streets of the city they finally arrive at the apartment block that Andronikos had given as the address for the safe house.
Staying at the door Demetrios sends the duo up to retrieve the hacker.
After a brief interchange between Osha, Kainan and Dresden, that could have gone badly.
The newly formed trio start to head out when Demetrios’ raven comes flying up the stairs squawking “TROUBLE!”

Julian and The Ronin.
Chapter 2

We return to find the party landing back at the sky port after having dodged both the Imperial Police and the RMS.
After paying and genoursly tipping the pilot of the transport, the party piles back into their re-appropriated van to head back into Ambrant on the Long Road.
Noticing that there are now ISPD road blocks and check points everywhere the party sees smoke coming from what used to be the Safe house that they picked up Dresden from.
They make their way to the portal room without complications, where Osha and Kainan decided to wait while Dresden and Demetrios drops off the van from where they acquired it earlier that day.
After a short jaunt in the desert heat the Half-Dragon and Drow make it back to the others and hop into the portal.
Arriving back at The Spire the group splits up, Demetrios heads back up to see his brother, while the other three head back up to “The Shop” to deliver Baku’s package to his brother, who has promised to release Andronikos’ vessel from holding.
Running into a tearful and upset Alexandra in the reception area the party consoles her (Dresden attempts to seduce her with the help of some Suggestion), and tells her of Jason down in the warehouses who might need a new friend in his new world.
When returning to Paku, they find a female Air Elem waiting for a meeting with the over-boss.
Paku seems a bit upset at the loss of his game against his brother, but none the less agrees to hold to his bargain and release the Ronin.
Warning Paku of the threat that his lieutenant poses he brushes them off say that the women had already been dealt with.
The group returns to Zasha’s apartment in Cloud9 to meet with Andronikos’ and tell him of his ships release.
While there Kainan had some packages waiting that turned out to be some gifts for Osha.
They also discovered that now that the ship is returned it needs its engineer, Julian. More unfortunate however they discover that the ships starcaster has been taken in “Payment” for keeping it in holding.
Informed that he can be found within access tunnels of The Spire the party heads off into the tunnels.
After a few hours and a peaceful encounter with the local Goblin population the party stops in one of the many tunnel nexus points to test a theory.
Osha believes that if he damages the systems in the area that Julian might come and fix it. After tampering with an access panel with no apparent success, Demetrios slices them into pieces with his retractable blades, effectively cutting the panel into pieces.
Sitting in the lightless tunnels for what seemed like hours, hearing who knows what travel in nearby tunnels, a small bluish glow begins to appear in a an opening in the roof of the nexus.
Slowly floating down from the access hatch the slightly glowing skeletal form of Julian the Eleti appears to not take too much notice of the party and heads right for the access panel.
After introducing themselves and discovering who the Eletum is they inform him that Andronikos would like him to come back to the Ronin to serve as its engineer, an offer to which Julian seems if at all possible, excited to undertake.
Promising to meet them in one hour he sends the party off, but Osha decides to stay behind for a bit to watch the master at work.
Discovering that the tips of his bone fingers have been carved into the shapes of little tools Osha marvels and how quick and effectively the “Man” does his work.
While waiting for the Hour to be up, most everyone travels to the bazaar to acquire a few new items, Kainan spends his time looking for a cheap starcaster or two.
Meeting Julian at the same access hatch that they entered the tunnels in the first place, He joins them as they travel back to meet with Andronikos.
Arriving at the apartment the group discovers that Andronikos and the Doppel Twins are currently in the middle of, “Something.” Osha leaves to wait elsewhere.
Coming down barely clothed the twins retire to the kitchen to make themselves a drink, While Nikos comes down fully dressed and armed.
Demetrios and his brother head off to check out the ship while the group and Julian head off to visit Zento the slightly off Ship Merchant.
Zento practically pees himself in excitement after discovering the one and only Julian has come into his shop.
Giving a tour of his stock and warehouse Julian causally remarks that the strange cylindrical object in his inventory happens to be a rare “Astral Drive”
Mumbling something about set for life and possibly drooling, Zento heads off to start caressing the “Astral Drive.”
The party easily convinces him to sell them a Starcaster made by Julian himself for the low price of 1 Million Credits, and to have it delivered and installed in the Ronin.
Finally getting on board the ship they have worked so hard to free, the group discovers the true value of the ship.
With an expensive interior and features that are usually only found on larger vessels, the ship is work of art.
Dresden checks out the ships programming, learning that it is expertly written, reducing thousands of lines of code to just a handful.
Kainan checks out the ship and Osha discusses Julian with Andronikos.
