RJ: Onyx at the Farm
The door opens to a short hallway, about twenty feet long. At the far end is another door, hanging open. Onyx can see a pair of humanoids standing in it, leaning out to see what is going on.

One is an aquilish male, and the other is a human female. They goggle at him holding their comrade up before them.

"W-Who are you?" the woman stammers. "Are you that moisture farmer?"

I'm no moisture farmer. I'm just man trying to save the only friends I got a chance keeping. Now who wants to give me the keys to that ship outside?

Onyx rolled 1 success, 1 advantage using the Star Wars Edge of the Empire with a dice pool of 2a.  Coercion.

The two thugs draw weapons, but don't aim them. Possibly they're worried that Onyx intends to blow the rodian away.

"Mister, you've got a gundark by the tail now. Do you know who owns this land? Jabba the Hutt, that's who. If he wants to make a delivery to his own property, you'd better not try to stop him," the woman warns.

"[Language unknown:  Tra m o] Rix," the other says in a warning tone of voice.

Onyx is glad to know that they care for the rodian. At least he has some sort of a bargaining tool.

I could care less about what Kriffing Hutt owns the place. Right now you should be telling me wether or not you can get that ship to open up. I mean you got to have some fusion cutters, keys, anything. I'm not picky. Get creative.

"You're out of luck, bantha-breath," the woman says mockingly. "No-one outside the ship can get in without Tech-Hound's approval. And he only listens to him," she says, pointing at the rodian in Onyx's captivity.

Well maybe you should get your comm out call this Hound and let him know that this scary man has a gun to his favorite rodian's head, and the only way he won't blast him is if the hound lets go of the man's friends. Did I explain that in simple enough terms?

"Yeah, but they don't even like each other. Tech-Hound would probably --"

The woman's gloating is cut off by a sharp comment from her colleague. She looks abashed for a moment, then aims her gun at Onyx. "We've got a dozen guys here, in the farmhouse," she says menacingly. "They'll hear any shots. You'll be surrounded."

Onyx smirks. A cocky smirk. A look someone who had control of the entire situation would have. Yes he had no control. In fact this probably wasn't his best idea, but he needed results. Times like this is where you gotta go all in. If they call you your fucked, but whats the point of living if you don't take risks.

Ya I won't get out of here alive, but you can be sure I'll make my death a glorious one. In fact if we can't work this out you got my second bullet.

Onyx gives her a little wink.

So what do you say? We gonna work things out, or are we gonna get a little messy?

The two look at each other, plainly out of their depth. The rodian picks this moment to fall forward limply. Onyx barely manages to keep his grip on the alien.

The thugs, already twitchy, react with violence. They aim their slugthrowers, preparing to fire.

(Cool or Vigilance, your option.)

Acting just a moment before Onyx manages to, the thugs open fire. Bullets ring off the steel walls and Onyx hurriedly ducks behind the doorframe.

Their loud, clumsy firearms are still deadly at close range. Onyx catches a single bullet, but also hears the woman scream. He sneaks a peek. The woman's gun seems to have misfired. She is clutching her neck as blood pours profusely forth.

Ranged (light) 2 successes, 4 threats. 7 damage presoak. spending threats to endure weapon damage.

Onyx dives to behind cover and then grabs his sporting blaster. He then fires. If it looks like the girl who shot herself can still shoot, then he aims for her. If not he goes for the person with her.

Today: Onyx rolled 2 successes using the Star Wars Edge of the Empire with a dice pool of 2a 1p 2d.  Medium range heavy .

10 damage.

1 manuvers to get to cover. 2 strain to switch weapons. Action to fire.

Onyx blows away the other thug. The second, still terrified of the blood streaming out of her neck, fires wildly. The slugthrower bangs until it clicks empty. Onyx is unharmed.

Onyx walks over to the women. He pulls out the blaster pistol and holds it to her head. I'll make the pain go away if you tell me how to get that ship to open.

I really gotta put some points into coercion.

2 failures, 1 advantage

The thug refuses to surrender. She attempts to raise her gun up and fire at Onyx at point-blank range, although she accidentally drops it. It goes skittering across the floor.

This room is small. It's almost a utility closet; there are circuit breakers and wires running through it. There are also a pair of shelves that hold a number of small tools and odds & ends.

Onyx shakes his head at the women. I honestly didn't want it to come to this. He walks over and grabs the vibroknife the rodian used earlier. He than walks over to her. Lets start left arm. He sits across her his left leg over her neck. His right over her legs. He than slowly cuts into her arm doing his best to cause as much pain as possible. As he does this he puts his left hand in her right hand. If you feel like talking give me a squeeze.

oday: Onyx rolled 3 successes, 2 advantages using the Star Wars Edge of the Empire with a dice pool of 3a 1b.  Cutting through her with a coordination.

Now coordination might be pushing it, but let me know. I was sick of failing my coercion rolls.

The thug shouts in pain and distress as Onyx begins torturing her.

Onyx feels sickened by his actions. He is uncomfortably aware that inflicting physical pain on a prisoner is against Rebel doctrine.

Roll Discipline 2D. Uncancelled failures represent strain. Uncancelled Threats will result in the prisoner's cries alerting others!

Meanwhile, the prisoner surrenders her arms. She has little choice but to comply.

Onyx can take the two thugs' slugthrowers. One is a rifle, and the other is a pistol. He also acquires the thugs' wallets; they have one hundred credits between them.

Today: Onyx rolled no successes using the Star Wars Edge of the Empire with a dice pool of 2d 2a.  Doing the wrong thing for the "right" reasons.

Onyx can't help but feel he is betraying the ideals he is protecting, but if it can free his friends. Anyways why would anyone have to find out?

After a short interrogation, Onyx concludes that these thugs didn't really know much of import. They were simply brought here to keep the place secured while the deliveries occurred. They're still waiting on more supplies that should be in sometime during the next standard day.

Onyx reflects on the utility speeder the team saw being packed with supplies back in Mos Espa. Surely they must be getting close now.

Apparently there are four more of Jabba's people in the farmhouse. Tech-Hound brought a half-dozen battle droids onto the ship once it arrived. Then he locked it and has since refused to come out.

The thug passes out after conveying this information.

As Onyx concludes his interrogation, he hears a sound from outside. The hissing, shunting noise of a ship's gangplank lowering is familiar enough. Dienon and Forim must have gotten the door open again! Unfortunately, it's loud enough that everyone on the farm must have heard it.

The building is connected by a short tunnel to the garage. The garage is built into a dune. Climbing to the top of the dune is easy, and stepping onto the garage roof is no more difficult. Creeping along the top of the tunnel is a bit harder, as it has a rounded roof.

Coordination or Athletics 2D. 3D if you want to do it fast.

Onyx starts his climb. as soon he scrambles onto the rounded part of the roof he realizes this isn't gonna end well. As he slides off he readies himself and does his best to take minimal fall damage.

Onyx lands softly in the grassy sand, but then hears something even louder than before. The ship is now whining. It is powering up its repulsorlift engines!

Onyx sees the group of thugs running out of the farmhouse, shouting and waving at the ship.
