Modrick Canth, John Mardia, Mangus , and Vin Castellan climbed aboard the Samhain Grim and cleared the VSD Subjugator. They arrived at the planet Gabren and landed at The Moncalimari district looking for a residence to set up. On the way down ISB CPT and Samhain Grim Captain Jaelian Dressler recommended an old friend of his they look up, Chorus Noth. They explored a few sites, looking for a place to establish a safehouse, when they decided to look up Noth. He was being released from a detention facility that evening, so they rushed over to pick him up. They were not alone in trying to meet him there, when two other speeders pulled up. When Noth was released, he saw the other two speeders filled with Hutt thugs and jumped into the heroes speeder. Modrick hilariously tried to distract the thugs by explaining how their lives could be saved through spiritualism.
“Friends, have you heard the good news lately? Would you believe that even ones such as yourselves can escape a life of criminal activity if you only seek to better yourselves spiritually?”
John fired a well aimed shot at the thugs unstable speeder car which ignited a bunch of grenades and fusion cells, and blew up the car. Vin fired an ion charge at the speeder truck which disabled its repulsordive, and enabled our heroes speedy escape.
The returned Chorus Noth to his bar, the “Nova Nymph” where it was ransacked and empty. 18 months of being in a detention center made his fledgling crime empire turn to dust. They were not alone in his club, they were met by a representative from Noth’s old days, Stijzian a twi-lek and sublieutenant to a Vigo of the Black Sun. He reminded Noth that he still owed them 2 million credits and to deliver it, or he was a dead man.
Noth said he had it in a cache, and a smuggler woman he knew was keeping it for him. They went to go find her at a gambling hall called “the Drunken Draagax”. A classy joint, with an angry Trandoshan at the door named Gambis, they quickly found their woman, a red headed spacer human named “Eera Aquilla”. John tried his hand at gambling and earned 4,500 credits.
Modrick and Vin chatted with Eera, who is a feisty and indignant woman. They explained how they needed to recover Noth’s cache, and she told them that it was dumped before she was boarded for inspection on the Ice moon of Kurrald. She saw Noth behind them, and brought up a lot of previous issues with him, then slapped him and left.
John meet a Devonorian named Frenree, who works at the finance ministry. He persuaded him to have a meeting about a possible project in the future.
