Our current campaign has taken a few turns. The first session, the PCs were running weapons that were to be delivered to a Rebel contact. Well, they decided to turn around and sell the weapons to Groola the Hutt on Corellia. He, in turn, sold them to the Rebels, but at a greatly inflated price. Given certain mishaps, however, and run-ins with the Empire, the PCs have decided that its best to stay far, far away from the Core Worlds. During the second session, the PCs were contacted by Groola once again, and told to meet him on Nar Shadda. They did, and brokered a deal to work "with" the Hutt on certain jobs - mostly of the covert transport type. They used some of the money they made from selling weapons to upgrade their ship and personal effects. Then, a large-scale bar brawl ensued (when is there not a bar brawl in one of our games?) The third session, last night, had the PCs smuggling a shipment of rare and expensive intoxicating beverages from Nar Shadda to Tatooine. Their ship was interdicted by a powerful pirate cartel, consisting of a Corvette, a Nebulon-B, and two fighter squadrons. The PCs decided to power-down and let the pirates board their ship. Well, two of the PCs hid (one has a ShadowSuit), and the other two were captured. The interdiction field pulled another ship out of hyperspace, as well. It was pretty beat-up, with the reactor leaking a bit out the back end. There were huge red areas painted on the hull, and a handful of corpses chained to the bow. The pirates decided to evacuate the PCs ship, and made a run for it. This is where it got interesting: The pirates had blown the airlock doors of the PCs' ship during boarding, and the ship's pirmary quirk is that the doors don't always work like they're supposed to. Therefore, staying aboard and hoping to make their own escape wasn't exactly an option of the PCs. They had to sneak aboard the pirates' boarding ship (a small, heavily-armed shuttle) and stow away. So, now, leading up into next week, two of the PCs are sitting in cages aboard the pirate ship; two are hiding in the cargo bay; their cargo is aboard this pirate shuttle; and they're outnumbered by the pirates 500:1. Oh, and there are Reavers chasing the pirate ships. NYAR!
