Ashes of an Empire

Session 2
Finding the Harken-class Luxury Liner

This is a recap based on campaign notes from 10 months ago to the best of my memory and will not reflect all of what occurred.

The group was able to leave the Korit Spaceport with no further incidents. Inside the enclosed hoverskiff, Mr. Dorn had hired two other companions, a noble by the name of Baron Finde and a pilot. They headed towards Imapro, a corporate mining town on the edge of the Wastelands, but also a convenient stopping point before they ventured into the Wastelands. Imapro is also the home of Demetri, who owns a small shop on the outskirts. Though Mr. Dorn and Baron Finde stayed at nicer furnishings, the rest resided either in the hoverskiff or on the floor of Demetri’s house.

Two things were learned in Imapro. One was that people were asking questions about the strangers, almost like someone had been here first. The other was that there was a recent attack by Wasteland Hounds at a small mining house not even 20 miles east of Imapro. There were a couple of survivors, but they were in critical condition. Jericho, having spent too much time in the Wastelands, knews that Wasteland Hounds are vicious, lion sized creatures that have the ability to exhaust and weaken their prey before ripping them to shreds.

It took the group a few days of hard travel into the Wastelands to find the ship. Jericho was able to realize that they were being hunted by Wasteland Hounds and they were able to stay one step ahead of them. They knew that others had become interested in this ship, and by staying ahead of the Wasteland Hounds, the group was able to stay ahead of their pursuers as well.

They arrived at the abandoned ship that crashed landed into a hillside. The remains of the crew were found. The crash and 200 years since caused some damage, but the ship is surprisingly functional. The onboard power supply worked. The ship board gravity system worked, but isn’t stable. Though only the cockpit and living quarters are designed to have gravity. The cargo hold and engine rooms were never outfitted with gravity controls in this design. There was a large gap in the cargo hold and a few minor ones. There was a crack in the cockpit glass that will need to be fixed before leaving the atmosphere. The engines need fixed. The atmospheric engines being in better shape than the space engines. The hyperdrive is totally non-functional and beyond anyone on the planet to fix. The medical bay and living quarters were in good shape, minus the dust and skeletal remains.

After a couple of hours of investigating the ship, they spotted a dust cloud in the distance. Approaching from the west was a hoverskiff full of armed bandits, one of which they recognized as the man who accosted them in the spaceport in Korit, one Arken Skyspell. After an extended fire fight which quickly turned against the bandits, Arken Skyspell abandoned his hired men and left on his hoverskiff. Most of his men were killed out right, but the Raptarian, one Tyrarn Fex, surrendered. He was convinced that it was in his best interest to divulge what he knew which admittedly as a hired gun, wasn’t much. Tyrarn Fex was hired by Mr. Skyspell to accompany him on a raid. Was paid 5,000 credits upfront and was going to get another 20,000 credits after the job was done. Given that his employer left, he will take his 5,000 credits and look for another job.

Session 1
My Name is Mr. Dorn

This is a recap based on campaign notes from 10 months ago to the best of my memory and will not reflect all of what occurred.

Hadrian Dorn, a well known art dealer in Andora has discovered the suspected location of an old Imperium ship from the time of the civil war. Others have heard rumors of a ship found in the Wastelands as well. Among those are a Korit doctor by the name of Luther Terry, a Wastelander by the name of Jericho, an engineer from Imapro by the name of Demetri, an Anubi weapons dealer by the name of Thunder. Mr. Dorn discovered that this ship was once owned by a noble by the name of Garin Korg. If the ship is relatively undisturbed, Garin Korg who was escaping the civil war, would have had nearly all of his most prized possessions.

Mr. Dorn then decided to put together a team to go after the ship. He offered them each 10,000 credits, assuming they survive and him survive, but Mr. Dorn would get any items or artifacts that he wished. Anything else, including the ship could then be taken by the adventurers. Mr. Dorn knew that he had been followed and that his shop had been watched, but doesn’t know by whom. He told the adventurers that he expected resistenance, but was unsure of how much. He figured hiring the Anubi would suffice. Mr. Dorn told the group to meet him at the spaceport in Korit, where they would rent a hoverskiff to travel east into the Wastelands.

A couple of the more observant adventurers noticed that in Korit, they were being followed. When they arrive at the spaceport at the agreed upon time, they noticed Mr. Dorn being accosted by two individuals, one of whom in a duster is obviously doing all of the talking. The group quickly realizes as they get involved to protect their employer, that there are other thugs in the rafters of the docking bay that fire at them. Some fire is exchanged between both groups, and after Dr. Terry blinds Arken Skyspell briefly and Demetri gains control of the hoverskiff remotely, they are able to get Mr. Dorn onto their hoverskiff and they raced out of the spaceport towards Imapro.
