"You will be a pauper until you are ninety," Zirak predicts to Sora, glancing at the holodocument as they hurry from the room.

"Let's focus on getting Sora to ninety," Bane says as a chunk of the roof collapses a meter or two behind them.

Chapter III: Escape From Kau'dan City
They reach the turbolift, and risk descending in it. Administration staff and security guards hurry about the foyer in pandemonium as they exit the turbolift a few seconds later. Several cracks have already begun to develop on the floor, and most of the windows have shattered. Dashing through the crowd, they reach the entrance of the building. Outside the scene is not much better. The spiral streets are full of screaming and panicking pau'ans and utai, hurrying in all directions as about them rocks and debris begin to shower down from above. Utai and pau'an security forces direct and shove random citizens into shuttles about the place with as much self composure as they can muster.

Andor sprints over to a landspeeder parked outside the Administration Building.

"Get in!" he calls to Sella and Sora.

Sella hurries over to the landspeeder, accompanied by Sora, Bane, Zirak and R5. Administrator Ferr begins to hurry after Sora, flimsie in hand. Tamon, partway through barking orders into the comlink, grabs Ferr's arm.

"Administrator," he shouts, "Get to your starship and get airborne immediately!"

Tamon rolls his eyes.

"Sorry, Administrator," he says, drawing his blaster pistol and blasting Ferr in the back with a stun bolt. With a garbled cry the Administrator slumps limply to the ground at his feet. Heaving up the lean pau'an, Tamon passes him across to a pair of his warriors, "Get him to his ship and confirm as soon as you are airborne!" he commands. The pair nod, hurrying off through the crowd. Tamon watches them out of sight, before resuming his barking into his comlink.

Chapter III: Escape From Kau'dan City
By this time the party have clambered into the landspeeder, with Sora helping Zirak to hoist in R5 before leaping in himself. Andor takes off a moment later, and not a moment too soo, as a large chunk of office wall crashes into the ground where they were parked half a second before. Taking off into the chaotic streets, Andor dodges skillfully through the crowd, making his way down to where the party can only assume his ship must be parked. He has not gone more than a couple of hundred meters, however, when Zirak and Bane notice an all too familiar dark blur streaking towards the landspeeder through the crowd.

Andor's eyes narrow as he spots the blur, which is by now less than fifty meters away.

"Sella!" he calls, "Take the controls!" As she hastily does so, he rises out of his seat and slings up a blaster rifle, launching a series of blasts at the blur. He is as surprised as anyone in the landspeeder, and even the Sith herself, when all of a sudden she gives a cry, slowing as she clutches her side, staggers sideways and topples from the side of the road into the gaping sinkhole. He has only a moment to take in his success, before the ground beneath the landspeeder cracks, and it lurches sideways, tossing the helpless Andor into the sinkhole after the Sith.

OOC: Cassian Andor dealt 18 points of wound damage to Kyria Arashi.

"Cassian!" screams Sella in dismay, bringing the landspeeder to a halt as she helplessly watches him fall. She leaps out of the speeder and hurries to the edge of the ledge. There is no sign of him amongst the falling debris.

"Shall we continue?" Bane says to Zirak, sliding into the pilot's seat and beginning to take off once more.

"Wait!" shouts Zirak suddenly, himself leaping from the speeder. The reason becomes apparent as he charges over to where the Sith fell, and snatches up one of her lightsabers, which rests a meter or so from the ledge. A few seconds later he leaps back into the speeder.

"All, right, go!"

Sella has by this time herself returned to the speeder, leaping on just in time as Bane floors the vehicle forwards, dodging through the crowd even faster than Andor.

"We need to return to Coruscant," she pants, trying to regain her composure a little.

"How about we discuss this when we aren't trying to escape a collapsing sinkhole?" Bane suggests tersely as he misses a utai family by centimeters.

He flies along for another minute or so before turning the speeder so abruptly to the left that Sora is almost thrown out. He then flies out onto a platform where a faded, orange and grey YV-929 light freighter is parked, boarding ramp down. There is no one in sight, although fifty meters to so to their left they can see a warehouse, door open.

"I don't believe this," Sella mutters under her breath as she sprints after them.

OOC: Korr Sella has joined the party.

Chapter III: Escape From Kau'dan City
The ship appears to be a transport vessel, with a pile of crates stacked in the cargo bay. At present Bane pays these no notice as he makes for the cockpit. The ship is otherwise empty, with its owner nowhere in sight. Flicking a couple of switches, Bane warms up the ship and prepares for take off.

"Beepity-boop-dwoop!" R5 beeps, plugging itself into the copilot's socket beside Bane.

"Well," says Bane to the droid dryly, taking off as the platform collapses beneath them, "I'm glad that at least someone is having a good day..."

OOC: End of Chapter III...
