RISE OF THE ASHEN HAND
A Fur Price
The rebel movement on Solay is in tatters. THE ASHEN HAND has orchestrated the division of Solay’s native population from that of the rebel leadership, leaving a vacuum of power in the wake of the recent rebel offensive.
As the dust settles and the Empire takes stock of its losses, the crew of the SOLAY EXPRESS learn of an exclusive shipping contract being offered by the notorious gangster, TRESKA THE HUTT.
Hoping to gain favour with the Hutt, the crew have travelled to the lawless world of Qi’Ilbre to negotiate with the Hutt, only to be directed to a secret meeting amidst the wreckage of the abandoned space station in orbit around the planet....
TRIGGERED OBLIGATION: Slyssk (Obsession – Coat)
DESTINY POOL: Light 4 / Dark 4

The PCs are hired to meet with an informant named Khrass who is seeking their assistance with a smuggling operation. The PCs are ambushed by Black Sun in the midst of the ruined space station hanging in orbit above Qi’Ilbre.
The PCs escape and are lead to Indebedi where they meet the leaders of a Trandoshan Slavers group who have been capturing Wookiees from a peace loving community on the plaent and selling them as slaves. One of the leaders is not on good terms with Slyssk and his family, as he is a member of a rival clan. The PCs must are forced to make “friends” with the Trandoshans which leads to a none too pleasant dining experience where they are given a meal of fresh Wookiee flesh.
Suddenly the encampment is attacked by Rebels who are attempting to free the Wookiee slaves. Darius, helps several pens of Wookiees escape. Slyssk turns the tables on the informant Khrass who appears to be acting as a double agent and kills him before Khrass steals their ship. The Rebels flee with the Wookiee slaves, but the PCs are seen as worthy allies in the smuggling operation. The PCs are offered a lucrative contract and so must now find a suitable ship to meet the Trandoshan demands.
