Star Wars: Exogenesis
A Clone Wars Saga
The Galaxy has erupted into war. Planets from the inner rim to the farthest reaches find themselves swept into the conflict. As does the crew of the freighter "Galopigos" (called Glop for short). They have been contracted to run supplies to remote Republic Outposts. This innocuous turtle shaped ship (Ghtroc 720) has a class I hyperdrive, and a captain feared through out the outer rim. Rumor has it that her ship now has a Mandalorian and a Jedi on board.
Crew of the Glop
Captain: Tanner Dethmetl (Miralan, F 33)
Security: 2 Gamorean Guardsmen (Tanner just calls them Frak and Bib)
N-601: Modified protocal droid outfited with assassin droid parts (can't actually pull the trigger)
4 more droids of various models, all with passive heuristic processors incapable of violence
A Mandalorian. Nobody has asked his name. He tinkers with everything though. His name is Puckgroth.
Nim Joda: Nautolan "Jedi"...black combat robes, some blaster damage on the armor plates, and a hole that's suspiciously lightsaber sized. Oh..speaking of...Jedi have red lightsabers right? Yup..totally a Jedi.
The crew has been contracted to run supplies on a 3 month journey from Tattoine, to a remote outpost on the moon orbiting Sernpidal. The Republic is using the outpost to find remote Separatist factories being used to produce more droids and ships. The Glop is one of several freighters that are making regular runs along the outer rim, bringing valuable supplies to the Republic outposts along the way.
The crew has figured out pretty quickly that the Captain is a ham. She loves purrgils, and has never fired a blaster in her life. Outside the ship, she "plays a character" and does a damn good job of being a "bad ass pirate lady". Mainly Frak and Bib do any sort of heavy handed violence (which they thoroughly enjoy).
The crew comes out of hyperspace at the end of a long 3 month journey. Expecting to see a lush blooming planet, and it's blue moon. Instead they find someone smacked the moon into the planet and cracked them both. It's devastated. No sooner do they start dodging chunks of planet, do chunks of planet start shooting at them and start chasing them down.
Two strange coral like objects start flying around at them. The 2 new mercenaries start firing at them only to see most of the blaster fire disappear. Tanner even fires a concussion missile that also vanishes. They focus fire the ships guns at one of the coral ships and get a missile through whatever shielding it has. They make quick work of the second ship after that as well.
They make note of Sernpidal's new 2nd moon, and avoid it.
Picking up a distress beacon from the larger chunk of the original moon, they find the outpost still kind of intact. They also find a massive chunk of coral in the center of the base, surrounded by humanoids. A strafing run later, there are no longer any humanoids guarding the coral. They land and investigate.
Puck (the Mandalorian) figures out how to get inside the coral ship(s), and starts messing with all the biomatter. Eventually he detaches one of the coral ships from the mass, and floats it next to the Glop. Then Nim and Puck go inside the base to look for the source of the signal. Two of these weird warriors are waiting for them.
The fight is quick and brutal. Their weird shell like armor is very lightsaber resistant, as are the snake staff things they fight with. Nim gets grazed by snake venom, and although resisted its immediate toxicity, he's feeling some prolonged effects that will need medical attention.
Meanwhile, Tanner had Frak and Bib strap the coral ship to the underside of the Glop. The mercs save 3 republic personnel, and they get out of Sernpidal as quick as possible...
Our crew makes it to the nearest Republic friendly planet to get Nim some medical help as he's lapsing in and out of conciousness. The tail the rescued people tell is chilling, and does not bode well for the rest of the galaxy if these intruders continue this sort of conquest. Once Nim is back on his feet, the team is asked to investigate a nearby Separatist outpost they were monitoring that has gone silent.
