Special Abilities
Sense Stormtrooper seems to be a Vanya-specific thing. Is it a real ability? Or a smart-alecky shorthand for something else?

  • 2 lightsabers (5d damage)

  • Robes + 1 change of clothes.

  • Commlink (relays do not work in Faultline

  • DataPADD (Pocket secretary)

  • 2 heavy blasters (5d damage), 1 with a scope; but one of the two (GM's choice per adventure) is generally left in a gunsafe in the studio apartment on Tavya Nine. On both, they've been set to STUN and then the switch has been disconnected.

  • rebreather with small oxygen cannister and oxy extraction system

  • 1 can NuSkin (spray-on skin)

  • medkit, disassembled and contents shoved into various belt pouches

  • night-vision lenses

  • repair/maintenance tools for lightsabers and blaster

Generally left behind at home:
  • whichever one of the two heavy blasters has been left in the gunsafe instead of stuck into holster when she walked out of her room, last time she was home in the studio apartment at Tavya Nine. The heavy blaster WITH the scope was a present from Obi-Wan Kenobi ; the other one is older, and has taken quite the beating over the past couple of decades

  • Used to have a medglove. Somebody in the party took off with it a couple of years ago. Haven't bothered to replace it, but I still have the recharging connector.


Notes, Story Factors, and Misc Information
2 Force Points removed on 9/15/2019 at the end of Episode 3.07 Chapter 2, 1 to attempt to channel the Force to Davish who was trying to collapse the Nightsister's Force Scream, 1 to Transfer Force to help him with the aftermath.

Vanya never puts any security measures on her DataPADD (which is a specific model of the ubiquitous datapad found across the Galaxy). Vanya presumes that anybody interested in hacking is going to be better at getting into her inexpensive personal device than any encryption software suite she could acquire. Therefore, three things are true:
  1. Nothing truly sensitive or confidentail ever goes into VNY's DataPADD;

  2. Additional sources are always necessary for verification of any "facts" found in VNY's DataPADD;

  3. The Holopedia and BountyPedia are peppered with snippets from VNY's DataPADD. These snippets are all subject to the above two conditions.

Episode 3.07: Chapter 6: Introduction
Genog Druqod says the Gamesman is being blackmailed by DeJoy to transport four waves of Tor Ceti Creepies to Chalcedon the eponymous planet in Chalcedon system. We're negotiating with the Bonejackers Swoop Gang to be troops for us to assault the Bloodsmith Raiders base and make the BSRs rethink their poor life choices. Especially the "smuggling Hellweasels" part.
Once that is all set, So'Zen lets the Force determine which way we should walk in order to go deal with the BSRs. We arrive at a pair of warehouses, both dark, both modified to withstand raids and probably fight back. So'Zen and a couple of the creepy all-white-clothes knife types sneak off to go jump the light freighter that's attacking Talow Kit'Sedda's area behind us.
Skywalker School of Slavery-Stomping is in effect. I go to the back of Warehouse 2 and cut a hole in the wall and enter. The BSRs don't like that. Imagine!
Very soon, Aerena is close by with her shield active and her blaster firing. Davish comes in from the side and starts doing bank shots. Aldwin is ... around here somewhere? And Genog is using a chain as ranged melee AND as brass knuckles. Hoo boy. Think about that later.
Ranik Nuwest, leader/spokesman of the Bonejackers, is ... uh ... ? They like sneaking. And also they like riding in on their swoops. They are not in the building quite yet. I'll worry about that when it's part of the combat.
ohdammitall tower, the BSR nitwit with the plasma bolt gun must have jacked up the intensity on that round, I need to catch that and still defend myself
hooooooooooo boy

Okay ... while Davish runs the cleaning cycle on the cloning machine thingamabob, I'll go try to talk basic sense into the one BSR who surrendered after losing his lunch during combat.
Guess I should learn to turn the volume down on comms while having these spiritual counselling sessions with disgruntled opponents, huh? At least I have it tied into my datapad so I can make sense of notes later on. I was nudging this BSR in the direction of "your problem is a secret-keeping dangerous enemy that comes out of nowhere and kills everybody, which makes a solution of 'keep them a secret' SUPER STUPID, why not broadcast their history and citations of evidence all over pay-per-view??" when Talow manipulated Aldwin into getting Cap'n Kolene to bring the talking crystal out of her pocket and start a dialogue. Which is coming across on comms. Which is making me really really want to whip out my 'pad and start filing notes at best speed! I hope Davish is doing so instead. In his copious spare time.
Princess Shiny Crystal Person explains to Talow, Aldwin, and the rest of us that over (ten? a hundred?) thousand years ago there was a war. The people on one side of the war liked to experiment on their subjects, and created the Eborreans. The Eborreans later came to this galaxy and fought the Aw'akeen.
By the way: in current times, Princess Sabine has observational data that droids are invisible to the Eborreans.
So are Reavers.
After the war, the Aw'akeen split into three factions due to fear. One faction, the Olddea, wants to stay hidden as observers. One faction, the Crathax, wants to conquer the galaxy in order to be safe. The third, smallest faction thinks the other two are both being fools -- but the Shalent are mostly outcasts and exiles.
Meanwhile, when my BSR conversation partner here sees Princess Sabine, he freezes up in panic and she audibly scowls at him.
So I ask him if he trusts me (to be a Jedi). And then I walk him over.

She has no reason to help you. You stole her past away from her children. You didn't care what that would do to them. You have no reason to expect anything of her.

Tell her about your problem.

Vanya Ysadora to a captured Bloodsmith Raiders having possibly the third most dangerous day of his life, Shards of Exploration: Episode 3.07: Chapter 6: Introduction, Saturday, November 9th, 2019


(Somehow this leads to the Bonejackers building her a big enough pile of droid parts that Sabine can recreate her body. )
Now my BSR dude feels like he has a LOT to think about.
Good. Thinking is good.
Taking what he knows and broadcasting it in many directions at once, to inform everyone around who MIGHT be a complication in the bad guys' plans, is even better.
Meanwhile, Davish and Danar are going to use the Old Vor Network (that the saber rakes have been using for decades) to send the data files on the Weird Shapeshifter Shock Troops which the BSRs created to fight Eborreans. They're going to specifically send it to someone Danar knows on the saber rake circuit. The plan is to send it to a certain doctor of our nonclerical acquaintance to start distilling out the Actually Useful Bits without, you know, a round of "Purge the Unclean!" setting the entire Galaxy afire.

Mystic Mobs Investigations: Backstage

Right, so, this is a loaner datapad in a style with which I am not familiar. It might be a knockoff? It's probably a knockoff. Best I can tell, it does not have a keylogger installed, nor any sort of streaming or eavesdropping software running. Some o...
