The away team could hear something in the smoke of the wreckage, hunting for survivors. Captain Fang, ordered the team to look for a shelter of safety. As they did, they came across an injured Aurian civilian, helping him, he explained that they were trapped on the Moon of Levorak, an illegal hunting ground. To make matters worse, Fangs Energy Sword and Ppokiss’s Rifle kept powering down.
Stealthily they made their way through the wreckage until they found shelter and climbed up an exhaust pipe into a section of the destroyed ship.
I made a colossal error in the rules here for the Stealth Scene. I thought I had written rules for Stealth Scene Obstacles. But could not find the in the CORE Book. Only afterwards, when I was looking through the books to see why I could not find them, did I notice that they were in the GM’s Guide! … I need to make a note to update the prototype book to include a page reference to the obstacle chart in the CORE Rules!
Something started to scrape on the outer hull, but it appeared they were safe… for now.
Meanwhile… In the Mountains
Dr Peridot and her camping trip which had gone drastically wrong, balanced on eth edge of a cliff. Peridot managed to clamber into the pilot’s seat and strap in. Taking stock, Vola-Zi was tangled in wires, her wings broken, and she was delirious with pain. While Briginia was still in her seat, terrified.
Suddenly the ship began to slip over the edge of the cliff… Peridot decided she would tap into her Geomancy Weaver Powers and try to halt the ship from sliding over the edge…
It took all her effort to do so, but she managed to lodge the ship safely. Then, a shadow fell over the ship…
Meanwhile… On board the Polarian Alliance Starbase
Acting Captain Loev Covis awoke to find himself beneath the wreckage of beams, and huge holes in the hull, luckily emergency power had created a barrier shield.
Wandering through the silent halls of the starbase, he eventually came across the central promenade, a multi-level circular void. Now wrecked with levels cascaded down upon each other, railing twisted. A voice in the dark called out for help.
In an attempt to reach the voice Loev, made his way to where the level had collapsed to the lower level, he could see a pile of bodies at the end of the steep ramp. Wreckage everywhere, Climbing down the railings he made his way towards the lower level. The railing gave way and he found himself hanging. He spotted a terminal against the platform just below him and dropped down onto it. Continuing his climb, the railing broke apart and he swang his way down towards the bottom.
Exhausted and a little shaken, He decided to take a rest, when he noticed the Intrepid outside! Calling upon the power of the Galactic Light, he used morse-code to signal it. Luckily someone was looking for a sign … the Intrepid made its way towards him…
