After their fiasco on Hoth, the party had no time to rest before the Queen of _ asked us to infiltrate a base, protect a slicer, and get out alive. We thought it would be hard, buy because of our typical “impossible” missions, this seemed a walk in the park! The only catch was the immense lack of funding she was offering, overshadowed by The Idiot’s Array’s indefinite poverty. Eventually the party decided to take her up on her offer, and they embark on an adventure they cannot walk away from.
….. Title Sequence……
THE IDIOTS ARRAY begins planning a strategy, then, engrossed i discussion, none notice Tharmorr sneak off toward a stormtrooper sergeant in an attempt to steal a keycard. When she came back successful, the party was surprised to know she also discovered a secret backdoor. All but Manthis secretly entered the backdoor, he required Tharmorr’s assistance. Dac quietly looped the camera footage, then THE IDIOT’S ARRAY sneaked around a corner only to be spotted by stormtroopers. The party dealt with them before they even had time to act. They then spotted a dark trooper, who also quickly died, but left a menacing and indistinguishable cannon. Visalia quickly looted this and began to create a tripod inside the hallway they ran into to defend Dac while he hacked into the terminal. The party ran into a hallway and Dac ran off to hack the terminal while the rest of the party defended them. The tripod failed at first, but later held up.
Suddenly a double bladed red lightsaber flurries down onto Jaden, who barely held up against his surprise attack with his lightsaber. Jadonious responded with a powerful riposte, knocking him into range of the Darktrooper’s cannon. The sith immediately jumped back into Jadonoius’ range, knocking over the cannon in his bound, just as a group of stormtroopers follows the commands of their leader, “Shoot the criminal Vislaer; fire at Will!” A shower of blaster bolts flew beside Vislaer, probably hitting Will. Vislaer moved out of the way of the next bolt, right into the blaster bolt of another stormtrooper. He then threw his last NOVA40 grenade killing all but 3. Jaden quickly responded to the sith’s blow with two sweeping blows, and a stimpack. This combat continues until Jadoniouse kills the sith, and Manthis and Vislaer killed the remaining stormtroopers. Jadoniouse picked up the lightsaber as they were running, as if by fate Vis also picked up the cannon.
They ran as fast as they could out, then Manthis took a half of the cannon. The opened the door to the outside and saw a giant anti-aircraft cannon surrounded by two six-wheeled walkers. Jadoniouse influenced the driver to turn on his teammates then ran away. Vislaer constructed a bomb, Manthis flew it to the cannon and it exploded but not before it could get a shot at Vislaer trapping him in his cover, (which Tharmor graciously lifted aside with the force) and shooting Manthis knocking him down into possibly death. The rest of the party silently mourned his loss.
Jadoniouse teetered between consciousness and unconsciousness, however while he was conscious he boarded the walker, while Tharmorr attacked the hoard of stormtroopers They slowly pecked off their numbers as Vislaer conglomerated nearly every grenade he owned, to a staggering effect. Without warning a mushroom cloud erupted killing every living being anywhere near Vislaer, except for Manthis and Jadoniouse, as Vislaer quickly dodged his fine tuned weapon of obliteration. Everyone made a furious dash towards Mara’s ship which could barely be seen through the dust. Somehow a group of elite snipers had eluded the desecration and started shooting at anyone running away. THE IDIOT’S ARRAY safely made it on board just in the nick of time, and rode of into the sunset… Then woke up in a hospital.
Tune in next time to hear what happens next… will Tharmorr sing—a silly song?
