Episode 3.08: Kanter’s War, Chapter 9
Blaster fire lit the streets of Chausid Station around the Council Center. Despite fierce resistance, the heroes drive back the first group of pirates. Their win is short-lived as more of the Killian Pirate Clan head their way. Two of which are wearing the infamous SABER CARAPACE POWERSUITS.
But the heroes’ effort haven’t gone unnoticed. All across Chausid Station, the locals quietly take to the streets. Using back alleys and narrow avenues to their advantage, they move in on the Killian pirates at the now fortified CHAUSID DOCK AND DREDGE REPAIR SHOP. The pirates are unaware of the danger until the townsfolk spring their trap.
Meanwhile, in Chausid Station’s MOLDY METAL CANTINA, a discussion of philosophy between Jedi Knight So'Zen Al Saba and the pirate raid leader, Gruk Equitch, will determine the fate of not only Chausid Station, but of Almon D'Joy’s plans…
The attacks against the Freedworlds have subsided into a full system war. Black Sun and their allies launch surgical strikes against the rag-tag forces of the Freedworlds Republic. In return, the ingenuity of the Republic has kept the conflict at a dangerous stalemate.
On Chalcedon, the heroes regroup to get their bearing. Looming over them are the ghosts of problem’s past:
They have recently returned from a successful mission to broker an alliance between the Vorbaize Pirate clan and the Freedworlds Republic. A mission that sent them hurtling head-first against the secret operations of the Tilles pirate clan to sabotage the Republic’s weapons donated by the Freedworlds’ ally, the Bareesh Kajidic from Hutt Space.
Once derailing Clan Tilles operation to sabotage weapons using enslaved moisture farmers, the heroes returned to Port Etmar wher they hoped to get some rest. Meanwhile, Sir Davish Tam and one of former member so Clan Tilles fly the freed moisture farmers back home.
But another problem surfaced…
Information reached Port Etmar that the far flung settlement of Chausid Station on the coast of the Piterra Wastes dust ocean has been overrun. The Killian Pirate Clan, long time allies to Clan Tilles, captured the town and the Freedworlds forces there. All due to the defender’s weapons having been sabotaged by Clan Tilles.
To prevent the Freedworlds from having to stretch their thin resources to the breaking point, the heroes join forces with their long time allies, Razak’s Roughnecks, to free Chausid Station. Together, they flew to Chausid Station to sneak into the town and capture the pirate raid leader.
Things weren’t as described once they arrived…
The Killian Pirate Clan had not overrun Chausid Station but only part of it. An armed force of locals, with an allied pirate gang, held the other half of town. It was a deadly stalemate with the heroes in the middle.
Now, the heroes must bring some measure of peace to Chausid Station. They must either drive off the Killian pirate clan, capture their raid leader, or both to force the pirates to leave Chausid Station.
This only leaves the questions:
