Like tumbleweed in space

Episode 03

The Wheel

After summarizing and dividing the loot, the party buries the dead and departs from Tatooine to The Wheel space station, to sell their unwanted items and buy some essentials. The wookies are introduced and Kajaff remarks they will stay under his protection until they will find a suitable place to drop off.

As they jump out of hyperspace, the ship is hit with asteroids and the crew barely navigates through them. They identify a shuttle engaged with two pirate star-fighters between them and the space station. A quick maneuver and extraordinary accurate shot, and the star-fighters are silently floating dead. After boarding and fixing the star-fighters, the party hailed the shuttle and was invited in. Aboard the shuttle they find an archaeologist and trader Bothan, instodcugin himself as Klaxton… and offers them his antique goods. Joe asks him to slice the encrypted datapads they have, to which he agrees.

Aboard the shuttle scattered many artifacts, weapons and space suits from ancient eras. Joe and Kajaff buy two space suits (Modified from Chiss Ascendancy naval formal attire for Joe, and Hundred Years of Darkness Jedi war harness for Kajaff). Kajaff also found among things a Shrines of Kooroo piece, who gave him odd headaches (which he didn’t bought due to high price) and a cargo box with a lightsaber inside (which he bought, although the Bothan warned that there is a dangerous gas inside). The party tried to sell him the star-fighters but to no avail. Klaxton informed them he is not willing to trade in such things, unless they get familiar with the syndicate he is part from, and accept a job from a handler on The Wheel.

After arriving to The Wheel the party was set to sell the star-fighters and the rest of their loot. At the industrial district’s cantina, they meet a Drall who sets a date with the party at their hangar to see the goods. While gesturing to Joe, the Drall plants a data card on him and departs… Police droids are seen following him out of the cantina. Kajaff checks the datacard with his datapad, which presents droid blueprints, but then a malicious program overrides the pad and almost explodes.

Meanwhile, Beckett sets a meeting with Ty’rex’s bounty hunter liaison at the same cantina, and negotiates over the bounties over the EV droid and gangers. They exchange credits and Beckett joins the party as they exit the cantina. In the hanger the deal goes sour as Joe isn’t happy about the prices offered and the cold shoulder, they depart to hang around the station looking for opportunities.

Joe spots a vehicle saloon, where he strikes a deal with some Toydarians, Jax and Geg.
Geg smoothes the deal with Joe in private and alerts him that Timoo has eyes around the station and advises them to leave. Meanwhile, Kajjaf finds a slicer to work on the datacard in the HoloArcade, which urges him to take him off station.

The party meets at the hanger, Joe sells the star-fighters, bikes and some weapons, and the spaceship departs.
