Almost 2 years have passed since the great hunt. A lot has happened in the galaxy grinding the bounty business to a near halt. Imperial red tape is keeping things moving at a Hutt’s pace. Alderaan has been destroyed and the imperials are blaming a group of rebels for that and there have been rumors of a crippling loss the empire suffered, but no official announcement has been made other than the fact many imperials had lost their lives in a rebel attack in Yavin space.
Banis and Joren have been spending their time with others more and more. Rex has become a common site on their new freighter and they have been keeping Kalak safe from the eyes of the empire for Utri. Since a lot of their money making has been done with computers and Cadan has been out of contact they brought on another common face Tevv. He is a whiz with computers, and with Kalak they could tackle just about any task.
The four of them were sitting in a small dive on Malastare when a small probe droid damaged and moving erratically approaches them. It projects a message from Cadan on the table its garbled and encoded. Kalak gets to work to clear up the message. Then when it replays you see and hear clearly. Cadan explains in the event he is captured his droid is to track him down and then relay that information to them. Cadan explains what they need is at their old meeting grounds. The message ends with a screen of code that scrolls upward.
This is the point at which Joren felt the need for some close company. He found the closest barmaid and used his charm to seduce her. This Aqualish female was quite taken with Joren and quickly rumors spread in the group about the encounter. It is said that Joren “Eats the caviar.”
On Rilleb the group locates another old droid of Cadan’s it is weathered and can only provide the information needed after they do some repairs and verify their identity. They get a tricky code that requires some solving in order to enter correctly. With some thought on it they were able to enter the correct password in time and they are able to access the encoded data on the probe droid. This gives them a location to a facility in the jungles of Talus. Surveillance information shows it is a rebel run facility Kalak is able to shed light on the fact it is definitely not an official site it must be highly classified.
The group heads to Talus and start working on a plan to spring Cadan from this place. As they observe from the jungle they see a rotation of guards around small shacks that are in front of the main building. On of the shacks gets opened and a human is pulled from it by the guards. He is then kicked in the back of the knees and executed on the spot. Another one of the shacks gets opened and the guards pull a Duro from it. Recognizing Cadan the group hope for the best. The guards pull him into the main building.
Using his skills Banis helps the group over to the maintanence hatch and sneaks in. A couple of snags happen when transporting the last party member over and they need to take out the guard that spotted them quietly. Banis then hides the body in the jungle and gets spotted again on the way back. This guard ends up dead and instead of hidden in the jungle Banis pulls him into the hatch with the group.
In the basement of the building there is a technician cursing as he works on the systems. They knock him out and use his uniform to scout the rest of the building. They lure two patrolling guards to the basement and take their uniforms. Then with the disguises they head down the hallway to the interrogation room they found Cadan in with the security systems. Since he was alone it should be easy. The guards at Cadan’s door are fooled by the ruse with the maintenance uniform and allow Tevv to enter as Joren and Kalak watched from down the hall in guard outfits.
As Tevv enters he explains himself to Cadan. Seeing as Tevv was not familiar with Cadan he was not ready for the response to the situation. Cadan help up his hands to let Tevv unbind him then Tevv handed him a blaster pistol from his tool box. Cadan called Tevv a fool because he had gotten past the guards with his lie, but they did not have a way for both of them to get out. “Why didn’t you come down here with the guard uniforms you morons.” He took Tevv’s comlink from him and told Banis to be ready. Then he told Tevv they needed a distraction. “Scream” he said and when Tevv hesitated Cadan pointed the blaster at him.
With that distraction the guards opened the door and allowed the rest of the group to jump into action except for Rex who was found when they were on their way out with Cadan. He was talking to the unconscious technician they knocked out. When they gathered everything and erased any trace they had been there they got out and took off.
