Edge of the Empire: The Idiot's Array

Shim's Log: Entry 1
Episode 1: A Pound of Flesh

Commissioned by the crime lord Bogletti Thek to steal a transport ship (currently impounded) and deliver it to him. Our payment would be the ship itself, which seemed like a pretty good deal.

Located the ship in an Imperial impound lot on planet XXX.
dealt with lady Ithorian merchant of discount landspeeders (possibly rebel sympathizer) to purchase a landspeeder to use in heist.
Attempting to get to orbit was fraught with difficulty, as we tried to out-run pursuing TIEs (which was impossible, because TIEs are very fast). Ship sustained a lot of damage. ALSO the ship is cop-magnet red.
Successfully stole ship, only to find that it actually belonged to a hutt, who would probably be mad about the theft. No wonder Bogletti was willing to part with it in exchange for the cargo of valuable Glitterstim spice.

So we are up one (badly damaged, stolen) spaceship.

Episode 2: Honest Pay for Honest Work

Shim was out during the events of this episode, but what was he up to while the rest of the crew was pulling the Ord Mantell job?

Trying unsuccessfully to kill the heat on his criminal warrant, which served to re-ignite the case and actually connect him to his terrorism charges, which results in Shim’s Obligation getting rolled in the next episode. Maybe he got mixed up with that Ithorian lady from the previous episode and implicated in some Rebel terrorism?

Yeah, sure. So he goes back to check on his contact with the Ithorian lady, she gets pinched for treason, Shim shows up as someone who was there recently, they do some digging, and he gets the APB put out.

Episode 3: A Dangerous Hunt

After unsuccessfully trying to bury the criminal acts connected to his name, Shim reconnects with the crew of the Idiot’s Array on a new job. Bogletti Thek has tasked us with rescuing and locating his brother Dorna Thek.

In escaping from our initial encounter, Shim (with Six’s assistance) plots a baller new hyperspace route.

We come across some droid hate crime, which incenses Six. Trailing some thugs to a bar, Shim initiates a barfight on Veeno’s behalf, and the team trails a pack of Dobah’s thugs back to a warehouse. They fight, and we rescue an R4 unit with a map to Bandin Dobah’s hideout.

We discover that Dorna was onboard a smuggling ship which is breached in an asteroid field. Also in that asteroid field is the crime lord Bandin Dobah, who has beef with our crew.

Six is probably trying to assemble a droid army for the violent overthrow of his squishy organic oppressors. Probably want to keep an eye on that one. Maybe put a restraining bolt in my back pocket for later.

We manage to sneak past/destroy the orbital guards to Dobah’s asteroid hideout, land, and make the disastrous decision to engage in hand-to-hand boarding actions with him. It cost us an arm (Shim’s) and a leg (Rex’s), but we finally put Dobah in irons.

But now that he’s in irons, what are we gonna do with him?
We could take him to the Imperial Facility on Kessel for the 10,000 credit reward, but as a wanted criminal, I’m nervous about landing at an Imperial facility located on a prison planet in our stolen ship.
We could take him to the hutt, who is offering five large, but we stole a ship from her and she’s not very well disposed towards us. We might be able to buy down some of that hate with a generous gift of Dobah’s life, though.
Or we could try and ransom Dobah back to his own men, which seems like a recipe for disaster.

  • Address the problem wherein Shim and Rex are currently short on limbs.
  • Figure out who to deliver this crime lord to. And then do that. I suggest we trade him to the hutt.
  • We should probably look for Bogletti’s brother, too. I doubt that Mister Thek is a patient sentient. So go into that asteroid field and scope out that ship.
  • Also that Rodian lady wanted her R4 back, or at least the data that was stored on it. I think
  • Six is co-opting that R4 into joining his droid uprising, but we should probably able to transfer the data and get some cash that way.
