Ironsworn Star Wars: Nia the Rodian 3

Summary: Nia and Grig are rebels based on planet Abon. The Resistance orders them to investigate about the arrest of Shona, Governor of planet Essus. They reach Essus on their starship the Stingy Eagle and find out that Shona has been embarked on an Imperial frigate directed to Abon. They come back to Abon and land a few miles away from the coordinates of the frigate.

Nia’s current situation:

Edge:3 Heart:2 Iron:2 Shadow:3 Wits:4
Momentum:+4 Health:5 Spirit:5 Supply:2

Dangerous task: Snatch Shona out of the hands of the Empire
Progress:4

In order to reach the position of the Imperial frigate, Nia and Grig must cross a forest.
I will treat this as a Dangerous Delve.

DELVE THE DEPTHS: C:2,10 A:5+3Edge WEAK HIT

Mark progress twice and reveal a danger
Delve Progress: 4
Feature: Dense Thicket

Danger: you way is blocked or trapped


They make good progress for a while, then they reach an area where the forest is so thick that it is impassable. They return towards the coast, but to get back to the beach they must climb down a high cliff.

FACE DANGER: C:5,6 A:1+3Edge MISS
PAY THE PRICE: Roll again and make it worse
PAY THE PRICE: You are separated from something or someone

They drop a rope down the cliff and Nia goes first. When she is half way, the rope snaps. She falls and take some harm [-2 Health now 3]. Grig is unable to reach her. They agree that he will look for a way through the forest or go back to the Stingy Eagle.

DELVE THE DEPTHS: C:3,6 A:5+3Edge STRONG HIT

Delve Progress: 6
Feature: Waterway

Nia founds a stream that appears to flow from the direction where she is directed. She leaves the coast again and walks up the stream.

Opportunity: you get the drop on a denizen

She stumbles upon an Imperial Light Walker. The pilot is standing near the vehicle: he has been captured by an hypnotic plant. Nia climbs into the Walker and proceeds.

DELVE THE DEPTHS: C:3,8 A:6+3Edge STRONG HIT
Delve Progress: 8
Feature: Rocky outcrop

The stream vanishes in a steep rocky area. The difficult terrain is not an obstacle for the walker.

DELVE THE DEPTHS: C:1,7 A:5+3Shadow STRONG HIT
Delve Progress: 10
Feature: Elder tree

LOCATE YOU OBJECTIVE: C:4,8 STRONG HIT
(+1 momentum, now 5)

Nia leaves the walker and stealthily approaches her destination. She peeps through the vegetation to see that the imperial frigate landed in a clearing next to the largest tree she has ever seen.

Can Nia see Shona? [50/50] YES
I mark progress on the Dangerous Task (now 6)

In order to get inspiration about why Shona was taken to Abon, I roll a
MAJOR PLOT TWIST: The enemy gains new allies
Shona has a strong bond with these beings [Oracle: the Jarans]: she can convince them to fight side by side with the Empire against the Resistance.

What do the Jarans look like? [Delve “Monstrosity” Oracles]
Size: Medium (person-sized)
Form: Snake-like
Characteristics: Sharp teeth; Tail
Abilities: Armored; Swift
Disposition: Helpful

Shona and a Sith Lord are near to where Nia is hiding: they are engaged in a conversation with some Abon dwellers, the Jarans. The Jarans agree to fight against the Resistance, so that their sacred tree will be spared.

Current situation:

Edge:3 Heart:2 Iron:2 Shadow:3 Wits:4

Momentum:+5 Health:3 Spirit:5 Supply:2

Dangerous task: Snatch Shona out of the hands of the Empire / Progress:6
