    Zo moves up to the same door as Nodoa and nods to her, and as quietly as he can he speaks, holding up a finger with each word on his hand clutching the vibroknucklers.

    "One...two...three!"

    On three he will be opening the door and rushing through the doorway, but hopefully this gives his allies enough time to prepare.

    If it comes to actual actions, he'll be taking a defensive stance, just in case there are prepared troopers on the other side of the door.

    Nodoa is physically disgusted by the outdated design. She looks away momentarily..and then wraps a hand around the knob and opens it

    Impulsively, Nodoa opens the door.

    What meets her eyes - and Zo's, Yijz's, and Eldrith's - is a grizzly sight. Bodies lie strewn about the floor, most of them in coats and jackets typical of spacers, or of pirates. However, there is a stack of dead troopers in the corner as well, who have already been picked up. It looks like the were outnumbered, but they put up a good fight. Clearly, it wasn't enough.

    Apart from the bodies, the warehouse has what looks like parts and equipment for starship-scale weapons stacked up against the walls, but most of it incomplete, as if waiting for assembly or sale. A few art objects are in a heap on the south wall, perhaps stolen trophies or future fenced goods. A Corellian Engineering truck not unlike the ones used to carry Cort and Nodoa the previous day sits parked in the warehouse, and presumably served as the Imperial troop carrier.

    The pilot, taking cover behind a pile of pirate bodies, as well as two stormtroopers and an officer, turn and fire! One bolt hits the door right beside Nodoa, burning a hole through it but not harming her. The other three strike Zo, but only one is able to get through his shield and armor and cause any damage.

    Spoiler: Game rule
    Show
    Zo takes 4 damage!

    It is now the PCs' turn.

    The pilot has soak 3, wounds 5. The troopers are soak 4, wounds 5. The officer is soak 2, wounds 8.

    Nodoa see's the enemies. This was not the best way to enter, especially when one of them fired their blaster at her only to miss. She gives a non-response, simply looking foreward. She taps her cybernetics, sending the internal batteries into an overdrive function. Her uscles tighten as electrical currents run over her ody,a nd adrdline pours through her veins. Sadly, it's not enough for her to charge at the imperials safely, thus she ducks back behind cover

    Yijz hugs the doorway, the cyborg rushes in in front and provokes blaster fire. Yijz counts a second and a half after the blaster fire and dives through strafing as he follows Nodoa as she takes cover.

    He hits the two troopers, who are foolishly out in the open and few more shots aimed at the officer and pilot go wide. He rolls and comes up behind Nodoa.

    Upon hearing the blaster fire, Cort hustles to the doorway of the room, takes only a few seconds to aim and assess the situation, then opens suppresive fire at the one soldier.

    "Zo! Take the officer, we need him!" he shouts after noticing the "prisoner"-truck.

    Posting for Zo, Eldrith, and Nodoa.

    Eldrith rolls two threat.

    Zo rolls two failure, one advantage, two light side - using light side to cancel failure. Will use the advantage to prevent the officer from getting away. Chips rolls one success and two threat.

    Pilot takes 3 damage (from Chips).
    Chips takes 4 damage (from pilot).

    New round begins!


    With Yijz having dropped two soldiers, Eldrith opens up on the pilot, but hits his cover and leaves himself partially exposed. At Cort's suggestion, Zo charges out of the doorway and swings at the officer, but the officer manages to duck underneath his swing. The officer takes a wild shot at Zo but misses due to having to dodge.

    Chips drops his blaster and charges in at the remaining pilot and attempts to grapple him. The pilot manages to slip out of Chips' grasp after a few punches, and shoots back at him, glancing him.

    I'm calling it - there's no way you're going to lose to this lone pilot.


    Zo strides over and Chips meets him as they pick up the Imperial pilot, now all alone with his comrades fallen, and slam the man unceremoniously to the floor. Were he not wearing his armored flight suit, the impact would probably have killed him, but as it is, he may be just unconscious. Either way, he won't be waking up any time soon.

    The warehouse is still filled with the acrid smell of blaster fire and the steaming reek of laser-cooked bodies. The junior officer is out cold on the floor where Cort shot him with his stun-blaster, but will no doubt wake up to be interrogated. Meanwhile, computers around the side of the warehouse have been turned off, but there is an elevator leading down into a basement in the corner, and right now the platform is lowered to the level below, although the console for it appears fully functional.

    What will our protagonists do, wait here and interrogate the officer, or investigate the basement?

    Rolled 1 failure, 2 threat on Nodoa's computers roll


    Nodoa is able to get the computers up and running in minutes. The files show up with a schematic of the facility as well as a summary of what was happening before the Imperials attacked. Apparently, there was some sort of stolen weapon project underway in the basement, but the computer on this level contains paltry information on what that was. Nodoa is able to activate the antenna, though, so can send out a message if she wishes to. Doing so, of course, would be easily detected, and likely to draw more Imperial attention.

    There are cameras showing the outside of the facility, and camera footage of what happened when the Imperials arrived in their truck and the three TIE fighters, which led to a huge firefight in which the Imperials overwhelmed the pirates, albeit verymuch with a pyrrhic victory. There aren't any cameras inside of the warehouse, or down in the basement, however.

    "Well, if it is some sorta engineering project, I doubt it will be seriously guarded downstairs and had they any guards they would have come up by now, right? Let's go down there and have looksie."

    Before the officer has a chance to fully come to, Zo seizes him roughly. His arms are wrenched behind his back and held in a vice-like grip.

    "Did you kill everyone here, Imp? How'd you find this place? And what's more, are there any more of you?"

    Zo gives him a shake, and while he waits for the groggy officer's reply he turns to Nodoa.

    "Might be best to disable the lift for now, till we figure out if any more of them are downstairs, and we've had a chat with this guy, then we can all go down together."

    Groggily, the lieutenant's eyes focus on Cort, as he blinks several times. His gaze then darts around the room. "Oh, it's you," he says. "There's three more in the basement. Get me to the comms and I can order them to stand down." The lieutenant winces at Zo's iron grip. "I don't know how Intelligence found out about this place. Our orders were to investigate possible pirate activity and to secure the site. When they started shooting, we shot back," he explains, trying to paint the truth in the best possible light.

    Nodoa, scanning the footage of the compound, can tell that the officer's statement is true, to a first approximation: the pirates did initiate the firefight by shooting first. The Imperials did have their weapons at the ready, though, and were clearly expecting a fight.

    You go down to the basement, and encounter the three remaining troopers. "Stand down!" the officer orders.

    The higher ranking one of the troopers responds "Sir, our orders are to..."

    The officer interrupts him with "You are outnumbered six to three by a team led by a Mandalorian. There is nothing you can do, except die." This gets the three to surrender.

    The basement has several corridors also littered with bodies, including a small assembly facility containing a partially built ship cannon.

    After a few moments, Cort recognizes the weapon - this cannon was built from the experimental blueprint that his clan in Mandalorian space sent him to Sidarin to recover. The dataspike supposed to contain the blueprint, however, is nowhere in sight. These pirates had clearly copied the design from the original blueprints and were building it themselves, whether to use, sell, or both, is uncertain.
