This week's update was written by Philip Fenez the player of Heb.  You can visit his own blog here it is a great site if you are interested in farming, and wonderful fresh veggies.

The group proceeded to leave the banquet.  They have now become rather blood thirsty and are proving that sometimes the cure is worse than the illness. The trigger happy ensured there was nobody in the way as they made their way to the elevators. Upon reaching the parking garage they discovered their stolen vehicle was missing (you just can't trust some people).  They proceeded into the street and stole 2 vehicles to get back to the I.S.1.  While on the way they messaged Vallana of the Consortium the coordinates of the consortium ship that was to be attacked and that the queen would be there. She informed them that an armada was heading to the location and they were to get themselves there.

Upon arriving at their ship, they noticed that there were blaster marks on the ship, the loading ramp was down and the droid JR12 that had been hired to guard the ship had been shot. Who shot JR?

Buggy Bob drifted the stolen vehicle 1 up to the loading ramp.  This happened to be the vehicle with most of the gun happy in it. Vehicle 2 driven by Jec Spectro came up in a regular stop (unusual for our group to be so safe).  Heb logged into the ship to find out what was going on discovered 6 beings inside 4 ready in ambush at the top of the ramp and 2 in the engine room.

While the gunslingers argued about the best way to get this trap sprung, TBA 77 threw a grenade up the ramp (which actually repaired previous damage).   The first person to stagger down the ramp was greeted by at least 6 shots being fired at them and a chorus of "mine" as he swiftly died.  The Duggs, Deltron 3030 (not a robot), Macro, Lewy and Baelen rushed up the ramp and took out the rest of the ambushers.

Heb immediately went to the engine room to discover  to discover that they had damaged the hyperdrive. He switched over to the lesser hyperdrive and off they went. Since ACE was still stuck in one of the smuggling bins it was left up to Baelen to fly the ship with the help of Jec Spectro which they did quite fine.  During the time in hyperspace TBA 77 Healed up Doug the Dugg with only the slight side effect of Dugg now being addicted to stimpacks. He also did an amazing job of healing up Lewy (woohoo).

Heb worked on fixing the hyperdrive and Jec Spectro did some major repairs to Macro.

When they got to the next jump point Heb switched the hyperdrives. He then proceeded to the sick bay to fix TBA 77, when asked to shut down to assist with the repairs TBA 77 revealed his hidden gun and explicitly said no. Heb quickly left to allow TBA 77 to converse with his 2 personalities.

The second jump did not go quite as well and the group came out in a debris field as they entered into a raging space battle.  They were immediately greeted by Jared Psyches the Fleet commander for the consortium.  He provided a Data burst of information to allow the group to know who they should be firing at. Deltron 3030 using his amazing dexterity was in one gun port while Lewy was in the other. Heb was mounting JR12........onto the ship near the loading ramp.  Thus fulfilling the name of the ship the Indentured Servant 1 (IS1).

The group was ordered to board the Renegade Blood and capture the queen. An order that was of much concern to the group as they had no intention of taking her alive (or anyone else for that matter).

As they flew over they were attacked by 2 fighter ships which were quickly dispatched. Baelen took 2 attempts to dock the to the Renegade Blood. Upon successfully docking Heb had to go unlock the door which he did...................leaving us to next weeks story.

  1. Is should read that Deltron 3030 (not a robot) tumbled and twisted his way into the gunners seat wher he Very agilely pressed the buttons that shots at the ships. All the while shouting Five, Five Five.
