The Bleeding Edge of the Empire

Trouble Brewing
The groups first bounty hunt

They landed the YT-1300 on the planet Formos and stepped out into the harsh, dry environment, they are looking for the Aqualish Smuggler Baron named Dobah, there is quite a lovely price on his head. Within a few minutes they meet an interesting and amicable fellow named Lance Mountain who immediately spots a fellow smuggler and kindred spirit in Adoume, they talk briefly and he directs them to the cantina to gather info. On the way they discover a dying droid in a trash compactor in an alleyway, they discover form him that his companion, an R4-W9, containing valuable atlas data about the hyperspace routes around the Kessel Run, has been abducted by the very gang they are after. The droid promptly dies in spite of the crews valiant attempt to save him. In the cantina they quickly find trouble with some thugs and are able to follow a stranger to a warehouse where the leader has escaped to. They are discovered by another group of smugglers and thugs spying in on the warehouse and a firefight breaks out. After an incredible streak of bad luck the adventurers finally get the best of the gang and their attention is drawn to a bag worn on the back of the now-dead leader….. what does it contain? Where will they proceed from here?

Trouble Found and executed
The smuggler baron is traced and killed for reduced bounty

With Barst recovering on the ship for the duration of the mission the rest of the gang continues on without him. They find a tool for removing droid constraints and a few credits in the dead bandits backpack and are met outside the warehouse by a crowd of pleased onlookers. They mention that this gang has been harassing the local populace quite a bit lately and they are happy to see them beaten, they point the way to the gangs hideout, a warehouse not too far from where they are now. The crew proceeds there and quickly find the droid R4-W9 with the restraining bolt matching the tool they found, they let him go and also discover the coordinates of the bounties true hideout in an asteroid field close by Formos. They proceed there without hesitation and quickly find the Aqualish they are after and what remains of his gang. A firefight ensues in which Reelo ends up with a broken leg and finally the Bounty is killed by a large piece of rock knocked loose by blaster fire which falls and crushes his head. The crew discovers some crates of contraband and proceed back to Formos to sell the astragation data contained by R4-W9 and finally they fly to claim the bounty from a surly Hutt who gives them less than they expected due to the fact that he is deprived of the joy of killing the Aqualish himself.
