Trouble in Paradise

Sneaky Suspicions

After Action Report

Fresh from their ferocious engagement with one of Edan’s indigenous predators, the dreaded EDAN SNOWTIGER, the exhausted heroes face yet another pair of life threatening obstacles along their journey to one of four possible rendevouz points on the planet, starvation and dehydration. Undeterred by the possibility of becoming hopelessly lost, the HEROES travel eastward based on their collective memories of what might be one of the few established settlements on the northern continent. Deep within the lush forest they soon come upon a newly established forward operating base of the IMPERIAL ARMY complete with a troop of Imperial scouts and a communications array linked with the orbiting STAR DESTROYER, the Subjugator. Noting the opportunity for re-supplying themselves with needed provisions and helpful equipment, the band of REBELS hatch a plan to infiltrate the campsite and go unnoticed while at the same time, cripple the communications array with an act of sabotage. The youngest of the group easily avoids detection by the scout trooper guard walking the perimeter and enters the tent. Moments later he is rewarded with survival rations and life-saving water. Each in kind, the noble and the minor Jedi successfully manage to sneak into the supply tent and return to their own camp richer for their efforts all while avoiding detection. Unable to pass on the possibility of quickening the group’s journey through the forest, a fourteen-day trek on foot, the group’s reptilian-like alien attempts a bold theft, that of an unmanned Imperial Scout Trooper SPEEDER BIKE. Stopping first to disable the communications array and thus rob the troopers of the ability to call in for air support, the alien stealthily makes his way over to the bike. Having successfully ignited the engine and thus bringing the machine to roaring life, the alien makes a rapid escape into the forest before the SCOUT TROOPER guard has a chance to react. The Imperials, however, were not without another form of transport, a heavily armed and armored LANDSPEEDER and before long conducted their own search operation for the midnight thieves. As the Imperials come within line of sight, each hero takes cover in the dense forest and escape detection. Emboldened by their success, the Rebel band hatches another plan in order to increase both their travel rate and their capacity to carry the goods recently acquired, the theft of the armored speeder! Waiting once more until the evening hours so that they might conduct their operations under cover of darkness, the kid takes the initiative to carry out the first phase of the plan, the diversion. With a simple toss of a rock, the two scout troopers now walking the perimeter are alerted to the presence of the Rebel thieves and upon the insistence by the Imperial officer attempting repairs on the array are ordered to investigate. As quick as an Edan tiger, the alien bounty hunter moves in closer to the speeder, close enough to occupy it. Repeating his last effort to activate the engine, the alien once again removes the speeder from the possession of the Imperials leaving them without a means to conduct any further operations without support from the orbiting Star Destroyer. And not much chance of that any time soon with an inoperable communications array…
