To the tune of London Bridge is falling down
It’s finally happened, people are beginning to take the consequences of their actions. Not that that’s really a bad thing in my opinion, this entire employment business is the result of me taking the heat for my various underhanded dealings.
Long story short, Alf hasn’t quite been fired, but he has been suspended, and it’s got him really down. Given our current way of doing things however, I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s fired or we are soon enough. So anyway, he says he wants to do some bar hopping on Wookie World.
I am of course, completely approving of this course of action, but B4 for some reason is completely opposed to the idea of going. He was going on about it being ‘a waste of his time’ and all, and generally being his Vulcan logical tin can hit man sort of self.
It was at this point I realized that having someone who couldn’t get smashed around would be very useful, so I decided to take the opportunity to convince him to come along. I do this by informing him that Alf was actually asking to do this because he had a ‘secret mission’ in mind, but couldn’t do it officially because he was suspended.
Now, though I thought it might be something he might do, I was really hoping just to get hammered. No such luck I suppose. Now, I never quite learned whether or not the events that happened over there Alf knew about or not, but I have a feeling that sloppy sap has bit more brainpower than he lets on to.
Anyway, We reach the planet, and hang out for a little on wookie world. Momaw met an old friend of his, and the rest of us hung out at the bar with Alf. That was when the trouble started, and the entire tree rocked hard.
I of course, was completely unphased, but everyone else seemed pretty alarmed. Jerec talked to some Wookies, and learned that this has been going on for a while, and they’re darn concerned. You’d think they’d do something else about their tree city falling down.
B4 used his sensors, and learned that the tree lacked water. With how big this sucker is, I wasn’t particularly surprised by that either. So we nabbed the wookie governor fellow and mosied along to the root of the problem.
At the base of the tree, we found a giant door, that appearently could only be opened through use of excessive brute force. Ironicly, Momaw was the one that provided it, but this foolishness somehow ended with B4 and Momaw outside, and the rest of us inside.
It was at this point I got a call from my bff, so I missed a little while talking on the phone. She broke up with her boyfriend… Again. Maybe it would be more accurate to say that she remained broken up after they tried to get back together. She’s also freaking out because she does way too many extra-cirriculars.
Anyway, by the time I paid attention again… Nothing important had happened. The party was figuring out how to get over a pit. Which was by the way, very simple with futuristic technology. On the other side, there was a stone Mac.
Lucky me, I was born and raised on crappy operating systems, so I worked it like a ten pound free weight. Getting admin status was easy as M-A-C. Looking behind me, I noticed that Sio had somehow or another gotten to the bottom of the pit I had flown over. Impulsive is that kid’s middle name. Especially given the bruises he incurred.
I then proceeded to open the door for B4 and Momaw, Raise the platform Sio had fallen to, and open the damn… As well as push a button I didn’t know what it was. I think the computer didn’t recognize the font.
That brought up a hologram of a weird dude of some species I’d never heard of. Iasa was acting very suspicious at this point by the way, I think he’s knows a lot of things I don’t. I’ll get answers out of him later.
Anyway, we then proceeded to Pull levers until the platform went the way we wanted it too. (I napped through that)
Reaching the climax of our escapade, we found three ninja and a Twilek Beating the crap out of the roots with glow sticks. Iasa said something completely unintelligible, fired his gun into the air, screamed ‘jihadi!’ and flew into combat with the evil bitch.
His rhythm was a bit messed up by the rest of us pouring fire into the lady over his head, but I still applaud his enthusiasm. Continuing, Momaw got really pissed and started screaming at people in that nasty Ithorian way. He actually spat a lung out and fell unconscious, while the rest of us slaughtered the ninja.
The Twlek (I didn’t catch her name) Escaped, and we found ourselves under a collapsing tree with water rushing toward us at an alarming rate. Slapping Momaw to his senses, he did the hippie healing thing to the tree (once more knocking him unconscious with the power of plot) and we all got out of dodge.
Oh, right, and the wookie mayor we brought along died too. It’s all good, right? I mean, we saved the tree, didn’t we?
Requisitions: Magnetic glove for my rocket launcher, I seem to drop it a lot. 1000 credits, restricted.
Several Questions to Iasa from Brendah:
“How’d you know the girl”
“Have you hit that?”
“How do you become a sith?”
“Why don’t more Jedi use lightsaber nunchuks?
“Why’d you freak out so much with the hologram, and the computer, and why were you trying to be so secretive?”
