General Dodonna approaches the party with a concern. One of his transports has gone missing in the Baffin ice fields; A notoriously difficult area to navigate. He has received word from an aged Lannik named Herman, and one of the captain’s many droids, R0-D1, who managed to make it to a small mining outpost while the others stayed with the ship.
Jumping into the systems, the ice fields immediately lived up to theirs reputation, and while Varan in his Z-95Ex avoided more than scraping it’s shields, the Gibbed Moon, with Swayze, Siol and Coregold, was lightly damaged. Reaching planetside, the party, who fortunately took the time to stock up liberally on appropriate supplies, found just how inhospitable an ice ball could be. Eager to get off the planet, they recruited an old miner named Cornelius, and trekked out to find Herman and the waylaid pilot. First the traveled to the lands of the discarded droids, and their, oddly named, king, a “Fire-breather”-like droid named Moonracer. With careful words, the negotiated for sensor data to lead them to the crashed transport, which lead them to take the treacherous path through the ice caves of the snow beasts. With confidence, and Cambot as a guide, they dispatched the first beast with ease. The second trial was to cross an icy gorge, and while they made it across with ease, the found that “Murderbot” actually did fear SOMETHING: Narrow paths. Crossing the gorge brought them to the lair of the abominable snow beast and his snow beast minions. Unable to dispatch the beasts before they could act, the party quickly learned why the beasts were feared. Siol was nearly dispatched, and Varan was horribly maimed. Even Coregold was seriously injured. After a grueling fight, that crippled the Abominable Snow beast beyond reason before it was killed, the party discovers R0-D1 by it’s eery red light, and the fallen Herman.
Without further incident, they reunited “Rudy” the droid with the transport captain and his other 8 droids, fixed the transport, and lead by Varan and the red lighted droid, made it safely back through the ice field, and delivered the cargo.
