Diving across the table Covis managed to save Counsellor Elna-Zi head of the Lon Faction. Kroom released his spores covering everyone in the shimmering fields of spores just in time! The assassin’s shot barely missed the Counsellor’s daughter Vola-Zi.
Clever Narative of the Energy Shield PerkI particularly like how Silver has incorporated his race and decided that it can release spores from his body to created a form of Energy Shield. It was different and imaginative and seems to becomoe a regular requirement now in all combat scenes! You cannot imagine Kroom without it!
The assassin then swooped down from his perch and made a run for it. The party gave chase along with Vola-Zi.
Racing through the crowded shopping district, they wove between the crowd, some citizens getting knocked aside during the pursuit! Unable to get a line of sight for fear of hitting a bystander, they decided to attempt to close the gap…
Taking a sharp right the assassin leaps from the walkway down onto a cargo transport facility. Enormous Hover cargo containers crisis crossing over a large expanse as they are loaded and unloaded from freighters into the station. The assassin weaved up and over, barrel rolling as he went. Vola-Zi spread her draconic wings and glided after him. The rest of the away team did not let up, leaping from the walkway onto containers. Kroom taller than the rest just reached out between and swung from container to container. While others relied on jumping. Captain Edari hard-wired a container and drove it across the transport lanes…
Snapping off a shot harmlessly ricocheting off of one of the transports. The assassin ducked down into one of the station’s back-alleys access tunnels. His wings useless here he wove his way through. Others did not feel so hindered and felt they were gaining on their quarry!
Entering an airlock and closing the door behind him as laser fire burned into the blast door behind him, he peered out through the airlock window and glared at them before activating his vac seal on his suit and glided out of the airlock and away…
New Pursuit RulesWe tested the new Pursuit rules an dthey proved to be exciting and quick. Some changes needing to be done but only very minor.

Back on Starbase 6 in the Zar-Gor System in Laz-Zar Space Captain Edari and his team are praised by Counsellor Elna-Zi who pleads with him to take her daughter with him.
