Beginning Destiny Points: L-6/ D-5
After about two and a half hours of surgeries, the Boonta Eve crew is bomb free thanks to Cratala's expert doctor skills. The party thanks her and they head to talk to Raanta. Suddenly Jaromir remembers Rika Jalba, the Duro merchant from the outpost, and asks Raanta what happened to him. Raanta laughs and tell them the Duro has been taught a lesson for not delivering the dewbacks. Jaromir confesses that they were contracted to deliver the dewbacks after the Aqualish group tried to extort more money out of the Hutt lord and the Duro merchant, despite the protest of captain Jeria. The Wookiee explains that he feels if they are going to continue their working relationship after killing Tukka, that they should be completely honest with each other. He also mentions that the money Lurek provided should more than cover the cost of the dewbacks, and he would even get more for him in the future. The Hutt tells him that he should be a little more careful with loyalties. As they are walking down the corridor, they spot Rika in a room, looking to be in pretty bad shape. The once heavyset Duro is now looking emaciated and not in good help, but still cognitive. Raanta says that he never intended to kill the Duro because he is a valuable asset, but he needed to be reprimanded for failure. Feeling satisfied that Rika has learned, he has some guards feed him and prepare him for his return to the outpost.
With the matter of Rika settled, the party must now discuss how they will proceed with the assassination of Tukka. They discuss the possibility of calling Tukka and telling him the job is done, or that Krixis has betrayed them, but they remember what happened last time they lied to this Hutt. Jeria suggests, loading The Neb Neb up with explosives and fly it right into the palace and blow it up. Cratala mentions the value of the cybernetics Tukka has at his facility, and Jaromir is instantly on board with the idea of making money. Svarjok and Cracka suddenly remember that they have seen the cybernetics room and it may be an easy way in. While they look at a datapad and try to establish a route in, Jaromir asks the muscled dark skinned human who he is. He has been giving off a very eerie vibe to the group, and Jaromir's intrest is piqued. He introduces himself as Vanin Tsarkosis, some muscle Reom hired. The Wookiee asks him if he wants to arm wrestle and Tsarkosis sees no harm in this. The Wookiee is slightly bewildered because not many humans would accept the invitation. He is even more surprised when the human's arm does not seem to waiver. After a short while, Svarjok and Cracka still laying out a plan, the table beneath Tsarkosis and the Wookiee snaps and they topple onto each other. The two immediately start to laugh, realizing they are going to be great friends. With the buffoonery of these two completed, the Chiss and Mon Calamari return with some notes on their datapad. They take turns describing the room, saying things like: it is an elevated room, very clean and sterile, cybernetics hanging all around,windows big enough for a Wookiee, no real cover, about eight beds, some air ducts, and a drain in the middle of the floor, but no idea where it leads.
Jeria asks Sash, the snakelike man, if he can alter the explosives that were inside of them to give off a bigger blast and for them to have control over when they detonate. He suggests attaching them to the droids they aquired on Uvena Prime and using them to blow up the Hutt. Sash says he thinks he can and will try to see what he can do. Jaromir suggests taking Lurek's suicide pills and using them to poison the Manadalorians or Tukka. Raanta tells them they have enough to kill the Hutt, but will not say how many it will take. They decide it would be better to poison the Mandalorians rather than the Hutt because they are the bigger threat. Sash also uses this time to tell the party that he and Reom had been mapping the tunnel systems under the planet and can get them to some tunnels under Tukka's palace if that is the route they choose to take. He tells them that he doesn't know what the tremors are under the planet, but Trench is not a god, but rather an old Seperatist leader Xark Dule has the monks searching for. He also tells them the powers the monks exhibited were just a side effect of the pakpa fruit they had been consuming. The plan they decide is that at the moment half of the team will go hunt down Krixis and take care of him, and the others will stay behind and stage Raanta's death to deceive Tukka.
The guard who found Krixis's chestplate gives Jeria, Svarjok, Jaromir and Vanin the coordinates of the discovery (now L5/D6). They leave in The Boonta Eve trying to intercept the bounty hunter on his way to the palace. Svarjok soon points out a trail of footprints and blood drops and they know they have the right trail. Soon they notice the footprints cross a caravan trail but continue to follow it. Shortly after they see armor strewn along the path and a body laying at a campfire. The Boonta Eve crew begin to argue what to do. Jaromir suggests going down to investigate because they don't know what Krixis looks like outside of his armor. Svarjok suggests pulling the person up with the tractor beam, but that request is denied. Jeria opens fire on the body insisting they have killed the right person. Jaromir stills believes the bounty hunter jumped on the caravan and is probably on his way off planet, but the captain doesn't want to hear it. He uses the tractor beam to pull up the disgarded Mandalorian armor and turns The Boonta Eve around and heads back to Raanta's palace.
While the others are out searching for Krixis, Lurek, Cratala, Valik and Cracka are staging a scene to look as if they successfully killed Raanta. The Hutt is afraid of blood and refuses to let them cut him to make it look real. However, Lurek informs the group that Pau'ans have the same murky green blood as Hutts, so they can take some of his (now L4/D7). Cratala suggests using some of the dead anooba to make it seem as if his own beasts turned on him. Valik takes the droid hand necklace Raanta wears as a slight to his brother as a "trophy," to show Tukka who knows Raanta would never give that up willingly (now L3/D8). After some negotiation from Lurek, Valik and some of the guards then manage to tip the throne to make it look as if Raanta was knocked into his battle pit. Cratala and Cracka successfully make believable looking injuries on Raanta for the scene they are going to show Tukka. They feel very confident that Lurek can convince the Hutt to believe them and have a celebration. Sash informs them that he has managed to increase the blast of the explosives and there is no way Tukka can detonate them. He does however say there is only a 75% chance they will actually explode and they can only be detonated from their bulky comm-jammer. At the point Jeria, Jaromir, Svarjok and Vanin come walking in. Jaromir hands Lurek the armor in exchange for the money he was promised for the set. The plans have been laid. The crew will return to Tukka, tell him they have killed Raanta, while another crew goes in to steal the cybernetics. They will attempt to poison the Mandalorians and blow Tukka up.
