Star Wars: A Gathering Storm

Fry-Pendar Diary Entry 1

The Dr. is pathetic. I have never met such a weak man. We arrived at Pendar and all was well as long as things were going along according to his “plan”. We found what appeared to be an old base from some long forgotten time period. We also found a ship of unknown name and origin. Dr. Heuer stated we should search that first while others dispersed to different areas.

It turned out to be some sort of prison transport when I hot wired Twiki into the system for power.

We found one live specimen accused of being a “darksider” whatever that’s supposed to mean. The good Dr. turned white so I’m assuming it wasn’t a good thing. After thawing it out we discovered his name was “Mal” Harloon, I just kept calling him “darksider”, sounds much more intriguing and intimidating. It also seemed to make the Dr. jump every time I said it and couldn’t decide which was more fun. Mal was starting to sound like a broken record about this light saber thing. When I did end up finding one for him he didn’t like the color. I didn’t realize this was supposed to be a fashion statement. To each their own I guess.

The fun came along after we freed Mal and these green dog-like creatures started to pour into the ship one after another. Thanks to Twiki’s power supply and an old shuttle we were able to escape briefly. This Mal character was the one who ‘pushed’ the ship out of the dock using this ‘force’.

We found a couple of tunnels on the plateau we landed on. I complete drained poor Twiki on the landing, but after Cage saved us from getting our asses toasted by a bunch of tin rejects in a cave we were able to rig something back up for Twiki. If I ever see a B-1 battle droid it will be too soon…well at least one with its cannons aimed at me, I don’t shake that easily. I should actually thank him for that one of these days…

The odd thing was Mal kept talking about this bad feeling he was having, anger, something, and something else. I didn’t feel anything, just a little sore from getting shot. He’s an odd one, but I kind of like having him around after seeing him battle the red “ghost” in the other tunnel. It must have been something important because Mal talk to this thing called “Ezerhaden” I believe? He wasn’t so tough after Mal forced him over the edge and stole his idol. The escape was the fun part! The second cave had all of these men carved out of crystal or something and came alive (they were like statues when we came in).

Oh, then there was the sarcophagus with the body of “Darth Valen” somebody or other? That did give me the creeps. I’ve never had to dig around skeletons before. Dead bodies I can handle, skeletons just seem like they’re going to jump out at you.

After running out of there we heard Skree’s wonderful voice crackling in our ears. He had the ship leveled at the plateau and waiting for us. Very nice of him.

I have to stop here, we have to fight our way out of this system. We’re being blockaded as I write. Both Mal and I are taking a few fighters the other team recovered from the planet, seemed in good enough shape, and blasting our way out!
