    Now that my first characters are all done, I have the opening episode of the adventure:

    Background for all of the characters can be found here : http://lasersandbroadswords.blogspot.se/2016/07/heroes-villians-and-others-of-note.html

    In a bar on the fringe, Vic is having a drink..

    When two local thugs want him to come with them, using their shiny guns to make a point.

    Less than impressed, Vic turns one into pink mist before interrogating the trembeling survivor. Having learned who wants to see him he calls his team.

    Vic, Along with CC and Kai, go to meet Mr Guntz, who have a job offer for them. It’s too good to turn down, so they head out to the facility they are supposed to raid for some data.

    Decidedly less abandoned than they were told, a stealthy approach is called for..

    ..And before they know it, the guards and the trio is having a shootout. With the schaz-beast out of the bag, the team gets ready to fight their way in.

    Kai is the first to charge into the facility, rather recklessly. Before long he has downed one merc and fought another to a stalemate.

    The concentrated fire from the mercenaries do a number on Kai, not even his armor can stop it. He goes down.

    Vic is quickly there to take revenge, putting more holes in the offending man than you’d thought possible, and CC follows up with a crack shot of her own.

    Finally the mercs break and surrender. Upon closer inspection of Kai it’s clear he is only lightly wounded and soon on his feet again, taking the data from the mainframe. The Trio then leaves, but not before bugging the mainframe in case the mercenaries get any ideas.

    Soon thereafter the team has been payed, but something is off. A strange question at the end of the call, and the fact that the mercenaries start wiping the facilities data rather than reconvering it makes Vic uneasy. The information that a facility on the planet Thylla I is involved in something called project BW. Getting out jsut before their would-be assassins arrive, the trio goes to the spaceport to go to Thylla I and get to the bottom of this!

    The full report can be found here: http://lasersandbroadswords.blogspot.se/2016/07/episode-1-new-job-starport-scum-aar.html

    Thanks for reading!

    Nice, some good touches.
    They need to buy, or maybe acquire their own ship.

    Thanks Michael πŸ™‚
    I’m looking at the possibility of building another shuttlecraft for this intrepid trio. The only thing I’m not sure about yet it where it will fit into the story, hence they travel by public transport for the time being.

    Cheers James, I hope we get to see more of Rhoro & Co soon too!

    Having found a transport to take them to the next clue, a facility on Thylla I, our three heroes take to the stars.

    But something finds them before their final stop..

    The ship, along with the boarding vessel.

    Our heroes, in their temporary lodgings. Pirates have come calling!

    Hannibal, a bounty hunter present as a fellow passenger when the pirates strike.

    A fierce fight breaks out in the cargo hold.

    And the crew fights their captors on the bridge.

    Hannibal shoots at the pirates, even as more reinforcements come from their ship!

    The trio is a bit groggy still from their rude awakening, and have a hard time doing any lasting damage..

    ..And eventually, the bridge crew is brought under control again. It’s not looking great for our heroes.

    When a heavy pirate moves for the door, Hannibal is finally blessed by lady luck. His shot causes a gruesome kill, brainmatter everywhere!

    As if inspired by their enemies messy demise, Kai whirls and cuts, taking down 2 pirates while CC shoot down a 3rd one.

    Vic uses his intimidating prescence and boomstick to convince the remaining pirate in the room to surrender rather than get shot to pieces.

    Marching up to the bridge, the hijackers have taken the crew hostage, and Vic is again called to “Persuade” the pirates to see reason and lay down their arms.

    After the action, the group has a chat with the bounty hunter Hannibal. It turns out that the pirates arrival might have been more than coincidence..

    This looks really cool. Were they not worried their weapons would damage the hull??

    Thanks Ali, very kind of you!

    Cheers James!
    Experienced pirates that they are, they mostly use gel-rounds in their slug throwers. These nifty inventions can cause serious damage inside a living being, but just splats almost harmlessly against bulkheads and superstructure. Vic and the rest of the gang simply didn’t expect to be attacked, so I think they just got lucky that they hit most of their shots, even if they didn’t go through the pirates for the most part.

    Besides, what self-respecting crew doesn’t buy the SanadaCorp Bulk-up kitβ„’, to protect their vessel in case of a gunfight or two? πŸ˜‰

    My next episode will be a few days most likely, since there are some more things to get in order first, but a few of them are done:

    These tiles gives me a few more rooms that I’ll most likely need for the next episode:

    I also made a few doors so that there are some more obstacles to overcome for Vic and the gang.

    Thylla I is a temperate world, so I fashioned a few more pieces of forests.

    There’s also some HW mechs and more pics on the blog, for those of you who like : http://lasersandbroadswords.blogspot.se/2016/07/updates-campaign-prep-mechs-and-more.html

    Hope you like it!

    The 3rd episode of my Starport Scum Adventure is live now!

    Vic, CC and Kai had just landed on the verdant world of Thylla I, looking for a way to infiltrate the Rakuen facility hidden in the backwoods.

    Outside the facility.

    The Void Stalker mercenaries were patrolling around outside compound, and the heroes decided to try and sneak in.

    Before long, a patrol turned around on instinct, spotting CC out in the open. A firefight broke out, and a foe is downed almost immediately.

    Kai is soon in the thick of it, taking out two mercs down.

    Since his back was turned, Kai was unable to dodge the attack. The shot is absorbed by the vest, but it still smarts.

    The door to the facility opens, and the rest of the mercs add their fire to that of the patrol.

    After some firing back and forth, Vic and Kai takes down all but the leader of the mercs.

    Alone, the merc leader, Bella, decides to surrender to spare her men.

    She leads them to the lab containing the data they are after, but something is left in the lab..

    In the lab, a Swarm drone attacks! But as they get ready to counter-attack, a mysterious armored man comes to their rescue!

    Contemplating the events of the day, Vic, CC and Kai decided on a course of action before they were to head along to the next planet: Quineg, the homeworld of CC.

    Don’t worry, there is more episodes to come, even if I’ll have to slow my pace some since I’m not on holliday anymore. Just check back from time to time, and there will be some more space adventure goodness!

    The plot thickens. Have they never watched tv? You don’t make experiments on bug aliens!!

    Avatar photoAlexander Wasberg

    While they know that, surely it won’t ever happen to their experiments! They are responisble scientists πŸ˜‰

    I hope they are responsible this time.

    The 4th episode of the ongoing adventure is live:

    Vic,CC and Kai need to figure out what the report from the Rakuen facility means.

    CC meets with a contact that could help.

    Having found out that the BW report is a bioweapon research project, they travelled onward to Quineg. Before long, they had found their way to the facility site, but they had picked up a tail.

    CC quickly takes out a ambusher with a headshot.

    As our trio started advancing, a squad of Void Stalkers turned up behind them.

    As soon as they show up, they started shooting, wounding CC. She was saved by the stims in her armor.

    Kai takes out a merc with a quick shot.

    CC runs away from her attackers, stopping to take out another ambusher.

    After a lenghty struggle with the leader, Vic engaged the next ambusher. Punching him down before finishing him off with his knife.

    Some reinforcements arrive by the car rented by our heroes.

    Realizing that the are about to be overwhelmed, Vic shouts for his team to get into the facility.

    After reaching the facility, a horrible scream can be heard from deep within facility. The ambushers and Void Stalkers stop dead in their tracks, and then retreat.

    What is in the facility? Will they find what they are looking for in the facility?

    Quite an intense engagement there. Your table always looks great! How do you store your terrain?

    Avatar photoAlexander Wasberg

    It turned out to be quite a close shave in the end!

    Thanks a lot, it’s always nice to hear πŸ™‚

    Most of my terrain is stacked in various small boxes from IKEA and a local electronics store all shoved into a cupboard and the board and other big items are resting against said cupboard.
