Oskara assembled an astromech droid while Pash researched the history of the “Krayt Fang”.
Pash also verified that the astrogation charts were complete and up to date.
Pash discovered that Trex had upgraded the “Krayt Fang” with the holding cells in cargo bay 3, and that the “Krayt Fang” is at least 75 to 100 years old.
Pash also discovered that there is no bounty on Trex. He will have to continue cooling his heels in one of his own holding cells until the party figures out what to do with him! Let’s hope that they don’t forget to feed him!
Ota the Bothan gave the party an encrypted communicator to allow them access to Geonosian space, and more importantly Duke Piddock’s party. The party will pose as arms buyers for the Twi’lek freedom fighters to Duke Piddock. To make things more confusing, their cover story for the rest of the party’s attendees will be that they are food suppliers of some Rylothian stew for the hungry multitudes of Geonosis.
The party took off in the newly named and registered “Sand Devil”.
The newly built astromech droid malfunctioned slightly while doing the astrogation calculations, and the “Sand Devil” barely made it to Geonosis on time, and came out of hyperspace ass backwards. This amused the normally uptight Geonosian security forces so much that they gave the “Sand Devil” a pass, and the party made it to Duke Piddock’s party at Hive G. with just moments to spare.
At the party, they make contact with the Duke and purchased samples of the Geonosian weaponry for the Twi’lek resistance. The weapons were of high quality and wide bore – very intimidating! The Duke apologized for not having more to sell on hand – he explained that the Imperials had recently take an extreme interest in where all the arms that Geonosis manufactured were being sold and delivered to. The party and the Duke commiserated over the treachery of Teemo the Hutt, and he said that he might be able to make introductions to his rival Duke Dimmock to allow the party to convince that Duke to also break off his dealings with Teemo.
The party mingled a little after meeting with the Duke, and talked with an uptight Sullustan, and haughty Coreworlder, and two friendly and inebriated Corellians.
Oskara ended up charming the Coreworlder so much over their shared interest in Twi’lek artifacts that she invited Oskara to continue the discussion in her private quarters on board her ship later that night.
After the party, Pash returned to the “Sand Devil”.
