Nia’s current situation:
Edge:3 Heart:2 Iron:2 Shadow:3 Wits:4
Momentum:+2 Health:5 Spirit:5 Supply:5
Dangerous task: Find Shona and take her to Abon – Progress:0
Nia and Grig will enter the imperial command at the Essus spaceport in order to collect information about where Shona might have been taken. Grig is disguised as an Imperial trooper. The plan is for Nia to figure as a Rodian scoundrel that has been arrested.
I will treat the visit to the Imperial command as a small (Troublesome) Delve. I defined this simple Domain to use together with the Fortified Theme:
6-100 something unusual or unexpected
Delve the Depths: C:4,4 A:6+3Shadow STRONG HIT +MATCH
The guard says: “Rodian filth, uh? We two must be the only two guys at work tonight. I hope you find someone to open a cell downstairs”
Delve the Depths: C:3,5 A:3+3Shadow STRONG HIT
Opportunity: arrows pointing to “Data Room” They walk through deserted corridors, following the arrows to the Data Room
Delve the Depths: C:1,2 A:4+3Shadow STRONG HIT
Domain Feature 49: Office They see a terminal through the open door of a deserted office
Locate Your Objective: C:3,9 vs 9 WEAK HIT
Nia can connect to the terminal and finds the log about the only frigate which left from the spaceport the previous morning.
Complication: The frigate is part of an Imperial operation on the rebel-controlled planet Abon. The log contains the exact coordinates of the ship’s destination, but all other details are classified and not accessible through this terminal.
I reformulate the Task from Find Shona and take her to Abon as “Snatch Shona out of the hands of the Empire”
I mark progress on the Dangerous task “Free Shona” (now 2)
Escape the depths: C:2,6 A:5+3 STRONG HIT
+1 momentum (now 3)
They return undisturbed to the Stingy Eagle. The Stingy Eagle flies back to Abon towards the coordinates appearing on the log of the Imperial Frigate.
Troublesome Journey to Abon.
