Down and Dirty
A group of down on its luck ne’er do wells comes together in Baub’s Bistro off the Ulwan Bacheetskra district on Nar Shaadda trying to drink their problems away. In friendly conversation at the bar they learn of a Twi’lek named Corte Voss that was looking for some extra help with a job at the bazaar off the district spaceport. They decide with nothing better to do and credits running low to go look up Corte Voss.
On their way to the district they notice a similar sized group with intent looks on their faces moving through the bazaar in the same general direction and they begin to wonder if it’s related. They finally come to the stall area they were to meet Voss and the crowd parts. She and what looks to be her ship’s crew are facing a lone Trandoshan named Thamoss. There is clearly a disagreement over price of some goods going on.
Knomelon, a Zeltron performer, saunters right up to Thamoss without breaking stride and begins to talk Thamoss into accepting the price. Thamoss looks confused. Voss looks confused. Thamoss says he doesn’t disagree but it seems like the price is somewhat unfair. Axiom, a human card shark moves to Voss and explains they heard from Baub Voss was looking for help with some deal in the bazaar. Thamoss sensing betrayal waves his hand and blaster fire erupts from several directions in the bazaar. Everyone begins to move and return fire.
The blaster fight is short, and vicious. Thamoss and his mercenary thugs are dispatched, with the group all a bit in shock with the number of thugs that their new partner, LM, an archaeologist?!? dropped with precision blaster shots. Regardless they, and Voss along with her crew withdraw to Voss’ ship, Titan’s Mercy, where she thanks them for the help and gives them a 5 rifle crate of E-11s, some of what she had been trying to sell to Thamoss.
The group departs. Knomelon and Axiom manage to find a fence for the rifles and move them quickly at a steep discount. Sam “Stitch” S, begins to spread disinformation in the district for the shootout in which Thamoss died and pins it on Voss.
They decide they might actually make a cred or two together and not even die…
