Alright team, what’s the plan to get into Nav’s Rest?

Key facts of Chapter I so far:

UPON ARRIVAL
  • You are working for “the Slava” a crime lord based in Nar-Shaddaa (you aren’t thugs, your akin to bounty hunters, like Boba Fett).
  • You are at section A2 of the Spaceship/Station ACCRETION, you must reach your contact at section XI (this is your main objective). You were given a passphrase.
  • On your way to the transborder station you met three NPCs: Lucy, two kids and Jojo.

AFTER ARRIVAL
  • Section A2 fell under attack by an unknown force.
  • The attack involved the corruption of droid operative systems.
  • The attack also involved temporary destabilization of computer operated defense and navigation systems of the ships in the ACCRETION and of the ACCRETION.
  • After the attack, you learned Section A2 is likely to enforce a lockdown.
  • You don’t know the motives behind the attack. But you learned that the ACCRETION is a ship sent by the Alliance (i.e. the Republic) to keep an eye on Nar Shaddaa. The Alliance also sent a new special force the “9909 ͭ ͪ Legion” with the ACCRETION, which was going to be deployed the day after you arrived.
MAKING YOUR WAY TO THE OBJECTIVE
  • To escape section A2 and fulfill your objective, you planned to “borrow” a ship at Nav’s Rest.
  • You fought 4 to 6 rogue droids on your way to Nav’s Rest. You also retrieved the carcass of a dark trooper.
  • Your friend Togosho the Jensaarai, went missing in action, but you met with the new PC ally: K-10.
  • You hijacked a shuttle to reach Nav’s Rest faster, but Bibingui crashed the shuttle, and you lost the vehicle when you were almost there.
  • After the crash Lucy and the kids left you; Jojo is still with the party.
  • Fortunately, you acquired 3 speeder bikes.
  • PURR1T0, Bibingui’s astromech, went rogue and you had to shut it down.
CURRENT SITUATION
  • With a few abstractions of time spent in recovering from battle, exploring, investigating, and preparing, it is almost midnight. The lockdown is imminent.
  • You are in front of Nav’s Rest entrance, at a safe distance, people are fighting there.
  • Access is partially blocked. If you want to keep the speeder bikes and the dark trooper body, you’ll have to make your way around the entrance.
A quick summary of your loot:
  • Togosho’s shadow-broker ID and other misc stuff.
  • Three guns/blasters.
  • Three speeder bikes.
  • A dark trooper OS module – brain.
  • A dark trooper carcass.
  • The OS modules – brains of three sentinel droids.
  • All editions to date of Nar-Shaddaa’s gazette since you started the campaign.

Bibingui suggests to take the risk of jumping over the gate, she is determined to beat the enemies that are in her way and avenge purrito, as much as she wants to leave and repair her fellow astromech.ʕ •̀ o •́ ʔ
Bibingui decide to take a gun, comrades let's go and we destroy whoever gets in the way. Comrades, let's move towards the entrance quietly and have our weapons ready in case of any inconvenience. We should look for a ramp or something, do you see anything that helps? A pile of debris, maybe?ʕಠᴥಠʔ ?

OOC: Good idea Bibingui, Sounds like a plan, what are the rest of you doing?

"Understood," K10 replies, scanning this battlefield for the path of least resistance.

OOC: I understand from communication with SID that PumpkinLorica is fishing for Serendipity but would it be valuable to roll Observation or Tactics to further define an advantageous scene?

Edit: Oof, a 17 for Observation, which, unless the difficulty modifier is +2 or better, is a critical failure...

OOC: That'd be great, you'll gather valuable information to define where and how you land, either will do this time.

Vanta rolls a 5 for driving (critical success I think).

Let's move and help the people!

K10 firmly grips the handles of their speeder bike as they and Bibingui take a course bumpier than the droid estimated, approaching a fortuitously placed ramp at speed...

(Rolled a 7, which I'm guessing will be a success after modifiers?)

Vanta is the first to jump. He makes distance between the ramp and himself, then runs forward at an incredible speed (over 95mph) and jumps; sailing over 130 feet in length, his flawless performance sets the gold standard for the rest of the party. The stunt takes him high enough that it looks like time stops for a moment, as the bike hovers, he acquires a clear view of the landing zone: Vanta flies over a barricade manned by a handful of dwellers; given the situation, it seems the men (3) are trying to take out a group of droids (5) that are preventing people from escaping the place. Probably their guns are too small to get the job done, at least immediately. Or maybe they're just a distraction.

The rest of the party follows Vanta, one after another, you all land safely.

You may enter combat or keep going. Thanks to Vanta's critical success, this’d be a surprise round in your favor, everybody is confused (except you):
  • You’ve landed on the side of the dwellers, behind their barricade. The dwellers are about 10 yards away from you, the bikes would be the only thing standing between you and them.
  • On the other hand, the enemy droids are about 12 yards away from you. They are partially covered by debris and smoke, the droids are not advancing, but they’re attacking anything that moves (so to speak).

OOC (I think we should attack the droids)

Vanta will get his rifle ready, and fast draws (11 success), and shoots (rolled 8, skill level 16-distance penalties) which I think is a success. rolled 24 for damage (8d5), burning

We are CRASHING this party, NO FUN ALLOWED DROIDS!
