Re: RJ: Moisture Farm
Dienton examines the area with a critical eye.  The lack of cover was a problem, but not one that they couldn't use to their advantage - their enemy would also be exposed.  Dienton spoke quickly to his companions laying out a plan for an ambush.

They should take up multiple positions in and around the complex that would provide them cover, but leave the new arrivals exposed.  The dead thugs could be propped up in doorways to get the newcommers to come in closer.  If one of us waited inside the house, the other two could take positions on the roof, using the dune as their access point.

Knowledge Warefare - 1 Success - How about a single boost die to each players first attack.

Forim, your boost came up blank.

Ohh, in game time - can I try the commlink again?  Are 17 minutes up?

Re: RJ: Moisture Farm
After Dienton pointed out the coming sand, which could only mean trouble. Onyx got ready for another fight. He put his sporting rifle over his shoulder and began heading to what he believed was the easiest place to climb the building. As he jogged there he called to Dienton and Forim. I'll go up high so I can get ready to take the shots. He pauses before adding a final shot. Don't kill the last guy. I'll stun him, and we can see if he had any information.

Re: RJ: Moisture Farm
Everyone takes a suitable position in cover, ready to take the first shot with the element of surprise.

Dienton makes one more crack at slicing the commlink. He fails, but discovers a 'backdoor' that he thinks can be useful next time he tries.

The Force, on behalf of Dienton, rolled 1 failure, 2 advantages using the Star Wars Edge of the Empire with a dice pool of 4A 2D 1S ((8(A), 1(A), 6(A), 2(A), 2(D), 4(D), 3(S))).
1 dice upgrade next attempt.


No time for that now, however. An industrial speeder pulls up to the farmhouses' 2 hectare yard. They pull up near the ship. the still-smoking shards of destroyed cargo pods are all around. The speeder lowers to the ground and a pair of jabba's thugs get out. Armed with slugthrower rifles but wearing only loose desert wear, they start poking around the shrapnel.

The speeder itself rises up, as though to continue driving. You have a moment to act.

The thugs and the speeder are at Long range.

Re: RJ: Moisture Farm
Dienton, not having any weapon that could strike at the current range, held his position - just inside the doorway of the house, with his blaster drawn.  He peeked around the corner intermittently to check their position.  They would have to investigate the the house eventually, he would bide his time.

Re: RJ: Moisture Farm
Onyx not wanting word of the damage they had caused to the moisture farm to get out, aims for the driver. He waits until the last possible moment, and fires.

Today: Onyx rolled 1 success, 2 advantages using the Star Wars Edge of the Empire with a dice pool of 2a 3D 1p 3b.

I take 2 strain for the extra B. 9 damage. Can advantages be that the driver can't put the speeder into full throttle?

Re: RJ: Moisture Farm
The rebels open fire. The thugs are taken aback but not entirely surprised, as they were expecting something bad to be happening after seeing all the chaos.

The speeder turns, aiming itself towards the farmhouse. Unfortunately, it drifts over a patch of loose sand. The speeder's port side sinks about half a meter and throws up a big cloud of sand before lurching forward. The speeder's occupants all curse at once.

The thugs on the ground knuckle over towards the cargo pods on the ground. They throw themselves behind the durasteel containers for cover. They are still at long range.

Meanwhile, the speeder gets closer. Of the four thugs inside, three of them lean out the windows and open fire at the farmhouse.

The bullets are disorganized and not really directed at a precise location. The thugs don't know exactly where to aim. It is enough to keep your heads down.

The Force rolled no successes, 2 advantages using the Star Wars Edge of the Empire with a dice pool of 3A 2P 3D 2S.  Ranged L Slugthrowers.
1 Setback on your next roll.

Re: RJ: Moisture Farm
Dienton maintained his cover, waiting . . just as the speeder crossed into range (Assumed Medium now) for his own slugthrower rifle, he selected one of the thugs firing on the compound and squeezed off several rounds in quick succession.

Though he missed his mark, one slug struck near the drivers field of vision - he saw the minion flinch and the speeder momentarily lurched as he responded to the threat..

no successes, 1 advantage.

Re: RJ: Moisture Farm
Onyx aims for the driver hoping to finish him off. Today: Onyx rolled 1 failure, 1 advantage, 1 triumph using the Star Wars Edge of the Empire with a dice pool of 1a 2p 2d.  Finishing off the Driver. The bullet misses, but it goes straight through the battery of the speeder knocking out the power and sending the speeder crashing into the sand.

Should I be giving myself boost die for high ground?

Re: RJ: Moisture Farm
Another loud curse as the speeder spins out of control. It dips just enough to clip a sandbank. The repulsorlift overreacts, causing the speeder to spill. On the second impact, the engines cut out for safety. This keeps a bad situation from getting worse, but the speeder's cargo still shifts thunderously.

Two of Jabba's thugs leap out of the speeder, desperately trying to free themselves from the wreck-in-progress. The driver does not attempt to free himself. Instead he busily works the controls, trying to get the speeder off the ground again.

The thugs all take cover behind the speeder. They fire at the house. Unfortunately it is too far, and Onyx has too good a position.

The Force rolled no successes, 1 threat.  RL at Onyx.

Re: RJ: Moisture Farm
Forim aims at the driver once more, who should be an easier target.  Taking the effort to aim, he fires a shot.  The shot slams home!

Dienton grinned as the speeder took a nose dive and stopped short.  Taking advantage of the distraction, Dienton lined up his sights with the closest thug and fired

Re: RJ: Moisture Farm
The Force, on behalf of Onyx, rolled 1 success, 2 advantages using the Star Wars Edge of the Empire with a dice pool of 1a 2p 3d 1B.  Onyx medium ranged at thugs.

The Rebels fire a coordinated volley at Jabba's thugs. They are knocked down and fall flat on the sandy field. Blood stains the sand.

"Don't shoot!" the driver of the speeder shouts. "Don't shoot. I give up! I surrender." He thrusts his empty hands out of the speeder's window. He opens the door and climbs out, trying to keep his head behind the speeder's chassis as he does.

Re: RJ: Moisture Farm
Dienton slung the rifle over his shoulder and drew his pistol.  He emerged from cover slowly aiming his weapon at the surrendering driver.  He moved forward towards the thug until he was 10 meters away, then called out "Dont move and lay down on the ground!".

Begin small, the Chadrafan knew he was not the one to interrogate the minion, so he coverd the slimball, waiting for Onyx to play bad cop.

Re: RJ: Moisture Farm
Onyx waits for them to put the weapons down. He doesn't move from his post on the roof until Dienton and Forum have the weapons and he knows none of Jabba's men will be able to fire on them. Then he comes down. He puts his rifle over his shoulder and pulls out his pistol. Well what do we have here. Now before you interrupted. Me and my partners here were figuring out what one of the guards here knew. Now hopefully you can tell us more than she did. Onyx aims the pistol at the thugs head Well for your sake.

Today: Onyx rolled 2 successes, 2 advantages using the Star Wars Edge of the Empire with a dice pool of 3a.  Deception.

I went with deception not just because its the best interrogation like skill I have, but because I told that great story most of which was a lie. Realizing now that 10 xp should have gone into coercion -_-

Forim collects the guns while Dienton and Onyx kept them covered.  He then heads to the roof perch where Onyx was to provide over watch cover.

Re: RJ: Moisture Farm
"Okay, okay! Listen, I don't know much. Just what I overheard and pieced together. They only give us our orders, not enough to leak to anyone."

"We were supposed to bring these supplies here to get ready for the Talent to do his work. They were going to turn this farm into some kind of factory. I think he makes special chems, or maybe poison. The Boss thinks it'll be big. The Bug is back in Mos Espa; I don't think they want to move him until the place is ready for him."

He surreptitiously glances around, trying to avoid making sudden movement.s

Re: RJ: Moisture Farm
Dienton snarls at the thug and moves to check the downed thugs pockets and comb through the downed land speeder.  Taking inventory he motions to his companions that he was ready to depart.

He frowned at the ship and sighed, wishing they had time to make use of it, but alas, they still had no contact from the other team.  It was time to investigate.

OOC
As long as we all agree.  Dienton takes one speeder with any materials they had scavanged back to town.  He would sell it all at the first place he could quicky unload it.  Onyx and Forim can take the other.  Difficulty for streetwise?

I vote we stun the thug and leave him.

Re: RJ: Moisture Farm
Dienton estimates that selling a speeder would be easy, depending on the price. Selling it at a fire sale price would allow him to unload it in less than an hour.

Perhaps their local contact would be able to take more time to sell it, thus earning more money. It might be awhile before they see any proceeds, though.

Re: RJ: Moisture Farm
Forim helps Onyx subdue and restrain the thug.  He then loads the unconcous guy in the back of their speeder, under some loose tarp, and drives back to town next to Dienton.

Unable to help himself, he races the little guy back to town

ooc: rolled 2D, so you can roll your piloting at 2D if you wanna race!

Re: RJ: Moisture Farm
Dienton saw forim driving the second speeder.  He glanced over and noticed a grin on Forims face as the speeder lurched with a quick burst of speed.

With a maniacal grin, dienton hit the accelerator and let the g forces push him back in his seat.  His fur rippled with the rushing air.  They raced neck and neck most of the way.  Just as they approached town, Dientons speeder began to slow - he glanced at the console and noticed that the speeders charge was flagging.  He grinned in frustrated glee, conceeding the race.

OOC
Close, but no cigar

3 success, 0 advantage
