Re: Episode 1: Freedom of Speech
Kell cursed himself as his shots miss there mark and he turns the quad-laser cannon at the remaining fighter, careful to not shoot towards Waryn.



13:56, Today: Kell Fett rolled 5 using 1d6.  Force Point to Hit!!!
13:56, Today: Kell Fett rolled 14 using 1d20+8.  Fire the Quad again!!!
  Total = 19


13:57, Today: Kell Fett rolled 25 using 6d10.  DAMAGE!!!!  ...if I hit.


Really, I am just sucking at this right now. I got less than half damage with that.

Re: Episode 1: Freedom of Speech
Leemy taps the radar to make sure that the TIEs are actually keeping up, shortly before the barrage snaps him back into the present.  "Oops, knew I forgot something.  Shields going up now."

Also, since the ship appears to be a little slower and prone to failure when safety mechanisms are removed (who would have guessed?), he reactivates the ones that he just deactivated last turn.

Using a Swift Action to raise the Shields, and taking the Fight Defensively option without making any attacks, so the gunners on our ship take a -10 penalty to hit, but our ship gains a +10 Dodge bonus to our Reflex Defense.

Re: Episode 1: Freedom of Speech
Flying past the Tie Interceptor Waryn pulled back on the stick forcing the ship to roll over and pointing his nose now at the Interceptor's rear end. "You're mine now!" he called out over the frequency. He pulled down on the tigger and set a hail of red bolts flying straight at him.




16:56, Today: Waryn Jasra rolled 21 using 5d10.  Damage.
16:55, Today: Waryn Jasra rolled 23 using 1d20+7.  Attack

16:56, Today: Waryn Jasra rolled 21 using 5d10.  Damage.

Re: Episode 1: Freedom of Speech
With the YT bucking and gyrating wildy, Grannos sprays quad fire in the interceptor's direction while purposely avoiding Waryn's approach vectors.



20:47, Today: Grannos Mer rolled 41 using 6d10+4.  damage (if attack successful) x2 for damage.
20:45, Today: Grannos Mer rolled 19 using 1d20+1.
20:44, Today: Grannos Mer rolled 1 using 1d6.  Fp to hit (narf :P )

Sorry, can't seem to change the ooc info to orange. Freezes up each time I try.

Dara sits ready, preparing for any situation where her skills might be necessary.  She trusts her gunners and her pilots...

Dara delays in case she's necessary.

Re: Episode 1: Freedom of Speech
Waryn clips the tie interceptor with his laser cannons and it spins out of control for a moment, just long enough for Grannos to line up the perfect shot and blow it out of the sky. All while Kell sprays the air with laser fire, only hitting clouds, though much of that has to do with Leemy's wild maneuvers, if he kept the ship straight, you might have actually hit something.

With your pursuit cleared, you head out into space and soon scanners indicate that even more tie fighters are on your tail, 6 of them it looks like. But you can also tell they won't reach you before your hyperspace calculations are complete, and soon enough the light blinks green and you are ready to jump.

Waryn in the meantime is also heading towards space, but instead has to endure the constant stream of information provided by his R2 unit, R2-F4, who's explaining that while Waryn might have done the actual shooting. It was really due to R2-F4's actually sensor management that the battle was such a complete success. Despite it's personality quirk, the droid seems well equipped to calculate a hyperdrive jump, and soon enough, your dunelizard's board also lights up green, and you too are ready to jump.

Re: Episode 1: Freedom of Speech
OOC: Alright, so if I understand it correctly, we have had a minute for our ship's computers to run the Astrogate calculations, and now we just need to make a Use Computer check to jump out-of-system.

Leemy grins at the newly green lights.  "So long, Nob Eradu, and thanks for all the fish."

Not sure if I get the +5 bonus for using a Nav Computer, but it doesn't matter either way, since my passive bonus is more than enough to make the check.

14:24, Today: Leemy Tazi rolled 12 using 1d20+11.  DC 10 Use Computer check to jump to Hyper Space.
14:25, Today: Leemy Tazi rolled 20 using 1d20+11.  In case of nat 1s counting as failing the DC, 2nd check to catch error before hyperspace.

Re: Episode 1: Freedom of Speech
Basking in the fading glow of the encounter, Grannosstays holds at his station until the jump is made. A nagging concern penetrates his sense of serenity and makes him activate the comm connection to the bridge. "Is anyone keeping an eye on our guests?"

Re: Episode 1: Freedom of Speech
"I'll take care of it.  If I don't check back in one minute, assume something's wrong." Dara checks her blasters to make sure they're both on stun, before carefully heading back to check on the guests.  Leemy won't need a co-pilot while things are taken care of.  With that, she makes sure both weapons are securely holstered before heading back to check on their guests.  Hopefully, the trandoshan is still in cuffs.

Re: Episode 1: Freedom of Speech
Kell, still frustrated with how his shots went when he finally got to fire the quad lasers, answers the comm as well. "I'll head back there with you, not much use while nothing is out there.. You keep an eye out Grannos." he states as he climbs out of the gunner seat before pulling Xelys up in a readied position. She was already set to stun from the mission, but he made doubly sure of it before he made it to the place where their 'guests' were. As usual, he'd let Dara do the talking, she seemed to enjoy that part. He would just be there for the muscle.

Re: Episode 1: Freedom of Speech
  Having very little to do while in space, the Quarren jumped at the chance to do security aboard the ship after feeling helpless in their brief sky battle. He pulled his DL-22 and likewise made sure it was on the stun setting before putting it back in the holster. He rested his hand on the blaster's grip as they moved aft, the familiar feel of the plastoid giving him some reassurance of control. "I've got your back, Dara." He nodded to the clone as Kel joined them to make it a trio.

Re: Episode 1: Freedom of Speech
The guests are all still in their place and looking relieved that the shooting is over and they might not be spending the rest of their lives in imperial prison. The trandoshan too is still sitting in the same spot, though his expression is extremely difficult to read.

One of the news crew, a human, stands up as you enter, still looking a bit shaken.

"Where are you going to take us now? What are we supposed to do?"

"You're being taken somewhere safe.  What you are 'to do' is still up in the air, though I would argue for your free release even if we did ask for your assistance." Dara smiles. "Rest assured, we are friends of freedom."

"What of the trandoshan? What do we do with him?" Kell asks, not sure himself what they should do. "He might be a spy of some sort.." he adds, making sure to watch the unknown guest closely.

  Kessaq shrugged, not sure himself about the proclaimed innocence of the reptiloid."I don't suppose we could run his id and find any criminal records over the Holonet. Is anyone here a decent slicer?"

Re: Episode 1: Freedom of Speech
The trandoshan licks the sides of his mouth with a thick leathery tongue as if trying to swallow up a juicy fly and then looks at you impassively.

"If you are consserned.. Drop me off at any sspaceport on any planet.. I can take of mysself.."

He seems to mean his words and seems perfectly ready to be dropped somewhere and strike out on his own, certainly it can't be worse than prison.

Re: Episode 1: Freedom of Speech
Popping into the compartment once the ship is safely underway, Grannos decides there's no harm in simply asking for an answer. "What is it you do, and why are you in imperial custody?"

Re: Episode 1: Freedom of Speech
The Trandoshan snorts, clearly not thrilled to repeat himself, but he does so anyway.

"I told you.. There wass a.. ssmall fight... The human wass releassed the next day.. And I wass ssentenssed for attempted murder.. I did fight but would not have killed anyone.. Ass for jobss... I take what i can get.. Ssometimess I work ass bodyguard.. Or crewman onboard a sship.. Whatever jobss come my way.."

The Trandoshan let's out a disturbing kind of hissing, which might well be some kind of laugh.

"I might not pay all my taxess... But I am no murderouss criminal.."

Re: Episode 1: Freedom of Speech
  The Quarren studied the reptiloid with his dark blue orbs as he spoke. This being denied being 'murderous', but not 'criminal' and that did nothing to assuage his doubt about his innocence. He watched for the reaction to his next question more so than the words of his answer.  "Even if we believe you, if we do drop you off somewhere and let you go, how do we know you won't give information to the Imperials about where we and the news crew are so that you can make some kind of deal for your amnesty?"

Re: Episode 1: Freedom of Speech
Dara thought it over.  "Either we have to dump you off with no idea of where we're going, which would involve lengthening our route by at least two days, or we can't let you go..."

She looked at the ceiling and brought her hands together softly.  She did not want to kill him.  It was not necessary, yet, though she had a feeling that her next decision would involve being ready to kill him if it came to it.

Recruiting him would mean being responsible for him, but it would also mean having to put him down in the future.  "Have you done guard work before?  And, if you haven't, do you think you can do it without getting into 'small fights' often?  I'd hate to give you a job, and then have to brig you in a week."

Really, if he 'attempted murder' later, he would have to be killed, probably on the spot.

Re: Episode 1: Freedom of Speech
Satisfied that the ship isn't going to suddenly exit hyperspace inside of a star, Leemy walks back to meet up with his passengers.

01:19, Today: Leemy Tazi rolled 19 using 1d20+8.  Perception check.

Feel free to throw penalties on there for just walking into the room, if they would be applicable for whatever the check is.

Re: Episode 1: Freedom of Speech
The trandoshan let's out that strange hissing sound again that's probably laughter and shakes his head at Kessaq's question.

"I owe you gratitude for letting me out.. And we both know that the imperial would never pay me for the information.. they would thank me.. and then throw me right back into prisson.. But i would not ssee a ssingle credit.."

Then he looks at Dara and hesitates before answering, almost trying to be diplomatic, as far as that goes with trandoshans.

"I would rather be let off.. If you are attacking polisse transsportss.. I sssusspect you get into more fightss then I care for.. I like living.."

Re: Episode 1: Freedom of Speech
"I say we let the bosses handle what to do with him.." Kell states as he stands at a more relaxed position, though if the trandoshan tried anything he would be ready for it still. "I don't care either way though, either you or boss-man need to decide though, boss." he states, indicating Dara and Waryn respectively.

Re: Episode 1: Freedom of Speech
Nodding at the Trandoshan, Leemy says "Alright, we'll let you off.  Do you have a preference for any kind of world, or will any spaceport be the same?"

Turning to the reporters, he adds "As for the rest of you, our employer is ready and waiting for you with multiple types of new identities, but the key thing is that you will still have the freedom to choose how you want to live and what you want to say.  So just stay calm and relax while we drop our +1 off at a place that would be better suited for him."

He waits to hear an answer from the Trandoshan before he returns to the cockpit to find the closest suitable spaceport, and tell Waryn about the pit stop.
