Fate of the Derian Sun (Part II)


Arriving at the swamp world of Gelaed, SLYSSK and his crew investigate the whereabouts of Rand Siclum, a man with the means to clean a ship of its identity. Upon arrival at the slicer’s workshop, the crew find evidence of a kidnapping.

Heading to a place called THE PITS, the crew stumble across an ancient temple and it’s steward, a native Stoda, strong with the Force. Debt Collectors, working for TRESKA THE HUTT, interrupt the meeting, only to meet a bitter end at the hands of the crew.

After uncovering an ancient artifact at the temple, protected by the elderly Stoda, the crew leave the temple vowing to return, but not before saving their associate from whatever fate has befallen him in order to claim the DERIAN SUN as their own....

Fate of the Derian Sun (Part I)


Through a daring raid, THE ASHEN HAND has procured the first of its vessels for their planned fleet. It is not long though before the crew learn of the ship’s true owner, BELLOQ THE HUTT, a notorious crimelord long thought dead.

With the ship secured, SLYSSK and his crew make their way to the swamp world of Gelaed to meet with famed slicer, RAND SICLUM who they hope can “scrub” the vessel, and transfer its ownership into the name of their organisation.

Followers of BELLOQ THE HUTT have also learned of the vessel’s hijacking and have dispatched agents to scour the nearby systems to search for the vessel, along with those responsible for its theft....

Gone in 60 Parsecs


Imperial forces, still recovering from the attack on Solay’s capital city, send reinforcements to the system under the command of GENERAL KORD, a feared military strategist responsible for quelling dozens of rebellious systems.

Meanwhile, the Trandoshan’s of the BLACKSCALE CLAN, the new profit source of THE ASHEN HAND, have been betrayed by one of that organisation’s members, the former Chiss scientist DARIUS, who assisted with the escape of the clan’s captured Wookiee slaves.

Keeping his treachery secret, the crew of the SOLAY EXPRESS return home to further their agenda by stealing space worthy vessels. As several suitable craft are located, the true targets of the gambit are revealed....

The PCs locate a suitable vessel using intelligence gained from the main Solay starport’s computer core. The PCs go to sneak into the bay and are met with resistance in the form of the owner of the ship along with an entourage of Black Sun gang members and Commandos.

The PCs eliminate the threat, capture the ship, and kidnap the pilot.

The PCs run into trouble though when their escape is hampered with mysterious problems occurring across the vessel. They soon learn that the ship is being sabotaged from within.

Whilst dealing with a new threat in the form of a group of Z-95s bearing the symbol of the Crimelord Belloq the Hutt, the PCs must deal with the pilot’s pesky astromech droid. The fighters are eventually destroyed, allowing the ship to eventually lurch into hyperspace towards their new destination, the world of Gelaed, where they hope to utilise the services of a well known engineer who is capable of cleaning the ship and its records.

Horrors of Past Deeds (Part II)


A group of Hutt Clan aligned bounty hunters, lead by the infamous BEYLYSSA, have attacked several outlying businesses and homesteads in the Southern Reaches of Solay including the headquarters of the Solay Express.

With quick thinking, SLYSSK and his crew thwarted the attack, minimized the damage caused, and fled deeper into the desert, hoping to avoid any further conflict.

Armed with the commitment to save their business, the crew have taken shelter in a small nearby farm to rest and recuperate. As the crew ponder their next move, an ancient power, buried deep under the shifting Solay sands, calls out to one of its members....

Narrowly avoiding destruction, SLYSSK and his crew return to their home base on the desert world of Solay to deliver the shipment of RYL-X stolen from the Imperials on Arlave.

The crew of the Solay Express ponder their next move hoping that their new business partner may offer them some protection and isolate them from the fallout of their previous venture.

Meanwhile, the GALACTIC EMPIRE, frustrated with the theft of the dangerous substance, a key element in a secret Imperial Operation, have dispatched bounty hunters into the sector to recover the cargo and deal with those responsible. Unfortunately for KYLAR, those same hunters are aligned with a notorious Hutt Clan eager to seek revenge....

PAN DOWN: The yellow world of Solay, its 10 clustered suns bathing the planet is their heat.

A large vessel looms overhead. A Hutt Battle Barge comes into view. Suddenly a large hatch grinds open in its underbelly. Several small Hutt transports exits the bay and head towards the surface, flanked by two Hutt fighters.

CUT TO: A Distant outpost somewhere in the Outback Regions of Solay. Children can be seen playing on what appears to be a tarmac, a version of hopscotch etched out in the dirt. Workers move about the building as they prepare to shut down the facility for the night. A tall middle aged Rodian surveys the area around the settlement. He leans down and collects some sand. He watches as the sands pour onto the ground. His head snaps upwards, and races to the closest sentry tower. A verpine stands guard, surveying the area with a pair of macro-binocuilars.



Moments later the two fighters begin blasting the settlement. Building topple. Screams can be heard. Moments later, one of the transports land, several armoured humanoids exit the transport, guns blazing. The second transport lands near the main building, a tall dark armoured woman strides out behind several similarly armoured foes.



Blaster fire continues, with several battles shown. The settlers are no match for the precision of the bounty hunters. Eventually Jora and the verpine are brought before the tall Bounty Hunter.



Belyssa snap draws her modified heavy blaster pistol and shoots Jora square in the head, and his lifeless corpse collapses to the ground. The female bounty hunter tilts her head as she looks down at the fallen Rodian, the reflection of blood pooling around the body of the Rodian can be seen in her highly reflective visor. She straightens herself, no longer mesmorised by the flowing ichor, and turns to the Verpine.



CUT TO: Interior of the Solay Express hanger bay.
