"Under the assumption that we intend to destroy or set free this giant being that we are in, I feel it would be inconceivable that we would leave helpless captives inside it. We must rescue the captives and then continue on." Atlis begins to walk towards the unconscious gamorean kicking his weapons away as he approaches and tying his hands with some cords from the fallen droids. He will shake him slightly while holding his lightsaber prepared for him to fight back, but making it obvious to the gamorrean that there is no use in trying to. Atlis also allows the force to flow through him and his surrounding area feeling for any presence of life in his vicinity. "Where are the captives?" he will ask the gamorrean when he awakens.

"Of course, Master. We can't stay here; reinforcements will doubtless be here soon. Shall we go effect this rescue and make ourselves scarce?"

CHUN: Yes...to the east.

HK-10P: (tactical advice) I will take the center of the adjoining room, as you all, the Jedi-meatbag-slicing-biologicals should take the door's edges. I will have an avenue of fire allowing me to cover you and not blow holes in you...and you will have avenues of slicing by diagonal or laterally as enemies come through the blast door...

..."At risk of letting personal experiences affect my judgment, I cast my lot for rescuing. Firstly, any guards oppressing the captives could become extra problems as we proceed, & I'm not keen on being attacked from behind again. Secondly, we've suffered roughly half our number lost already; as skilled as we may be, we can only go so far without reinforcements of some kind. Thirdly, a few of these captives may have seen parts of the ship we haven't yet, or may have useful information. And lastly...I know what it's like to be a prisoner in a place like this... That's my vote anyway, but I'll go with whatever is decided. As it is, I don't think we have enough left to split up."

CHORRO: Splitting up right now would be a very bad thing...Indeed, we will need to rescue these people and have them go back the way we came...by escort...I mean, look what happened to poor Kora and Bron. They were struck from behind...We're surrounded.

HK-10P (annoyed statement)...I was not finished...By having myself in the center of the room, I will be able to cover four different directions at once (scope raises out of HK-10P's cranial compartment)...No one is going to sneak up on me again...

CHORRO: You should have used that before!

HK-10P: (agreement) Yes, I should have...had I realized I had it. I am finding more about my capabilities with every passing hour...I wish I had...realized it sooner.

CHUN: Alright....alright...we know about it now. It will help...We need to move...Atlis, do you sense guidance from the Force?

"Under the assumption that we intend to destroy or set free this giant being that we are in, I feel it would be inconceivable that we would leave helpless captives inside it. We must rescue the captives and then continue on."

CHUN: We all seem to be in agreement.

NARRATOR: The results of attempting to wake the tied Gamorrean went better than trying to understand what it was saying when it came too.

"Mrgonoinkeronokoink"

CHORRO: Point the way to the captives with your face fool mercenary!

HK-10P: (statement) He said, "death awaits you at every turn."

CHORRO: He isn't going to need to turn if he keeps up the the nonsense!

CHUN: CHORRO! We do not execute prisoners...

CHORRO: I'm not going to execute him....I'm going to torture him...possibly to death.

CHUN: That is acceptable...afterall, pain is only weakness leaving the body...In a sense, you would be helping him to realize that.

NARRATOR: The demeanor of the Gamorrean becomes less defiant as good Jedi-bad Jedi went to both bad Jedi...The more neutral party was better accepted.

"Where are the captives?"

NARRATOR: The Gamorrean nodded to the east most door.

...Myshalla readied her weapon & prepared to set out in the direction intended. She managed a smile at HK-10P :"You're becoming more interesting by the moment HK-10P."

...Turning back to the task at hand, she was in readiness: "Let's go!"

...She was probably a bit over-eager to head off in the indicated direction, but it was time to free prisoners.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

OOC: Unless someone stops her, she heads off in the given direction. She will make a Perception check, however, lest any hidden adversary or booby trap catch her unawares.

Atlis reaches up with his lightsaber over his head and swings. He slices a notch in the outcropping (V12 H42) of the stunned gamorrean about 8-9 feet up. He looks to HK-10P, "Sir would you mind hanging this gentleman from the cords I have around his hands so he continues to grace us with his presence," as he stuffs some of the additional cabling into the gamorreans mouth to shut him up. Atlis then moves toward the eastern door attempting to sense anything he can through the hardened blast door ahead and takes position on the north part (V16 H64) and looks for a way to open the door other than cutting straight through.

Taking a note from the good Jedi-bad Jedi routine, Xandor draws his double vibroblade with a flourish. He thumbs the power on as his fluid draw turns into a twirl about a foot in front of the Gamorrean. The hum of the blades is loud in the Gamorrean's ears as Xandor kills the power and tucks the razor-sharp blade up underneath the captive's several chins. "And if we find that you've misdirected us in any way, I'm going to ask the Master if it'll be alright for me to...assist in your education. My blades haven't tasted blood in at least a day, and they thirst." He looks the guard up and down. "You look like you have plenty to donate..."

With another flourish he withdraws the weapon, slips it back into place, then takes one of his lightsabers in hand again, turning to head off with the rest of the party.

NARRATOR: The Gamorrean squealed a reply to Xandor's threat...

HK-10P: (translation) The ore processor is to the east...and the captives process...

CHORRO: Then lets move...

"Sir would you mind hanging this gentleman from the cords I have around his hands so he continues to grace us with his presence,"

HK-10P: (amused statement and analysis) Don't sir me master Jedi, I'm a droid and work for a living...I can of course hang him and wouldn't mind at all...(to Gamorrean) You will continue to grace us with your presence...but in a lesser state. Good night. (after hanging the Gamorrean, the droid touched the Gamorrean's shoulder and the Gamorrean trembled and shook violently and then lost consciousness).

CHORRO: You electrocuted him!

HK-10P: (correction) I merely tased him unconscious...He'll be okay...after therapy. (reasoning) If his friends come, I want him to be a casualty, not a recycled enemy.

NARRATOR: Myshalla and HK-10P moved into position towards the center of the floor as the Jedi fanned out along the walls, ready to launch a diagonal thrust into any enemy that charged into their circular lightsaber kill zones. They were half expecting a barricade, but Master CHUN's first choice of action was to try the blast door switch. The door opened and no enemy was there to greet them...The passageway curved to the south right inside the doorway....The sound of machinery could be heard coming from that direction...

OOC: Who is going in first?

...Myshalla welcomed the sound of machinery: that much noise would make their moving silently much easier. Sh tucked away the slugthrower, drew her pulse-wave pistol & make certain her vibroblade was ready to be drawn. SHe threw a smile at her colleagues:

..."Lady's first, I guess!?"

...She then took a few careful steps inward.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

OOC: Perception check for the immediate are beyond the door; then a Sneak roll as she moves forward (likely a half-movement due to he caution)

Atlis retracts his lightsaber, and quietly slips through the doorway right behind Myshalla. He attempts to sense any beings in his locality (other than his friends of course), and continues to sneak quietly trying to spot anyone that would be a threat.

Thrumming in the Force, Xandor's mouth stretches into a feral grin which he directs towards Master Chun...he brandishes the hilt of his deactivated lightsaber as he steps through the door next. Maintaining his connection to the Force, he continues to scan for danger, ready to deflect blaster bolts or other weapons as they make their way toward the prisoners.

NARRATOR: Myshalla led the way into the room that curved to the south, Xandor and Atlis right behind her…Within just a few steps into the room, the three were confronted by an HK-10P that shouted “Halt!”

Myshalla turned to fire at the droid, but then another figure that emerged from the south…a human security guard in teal fatigues…Xandor and Atlis ignited their lightsabers and raised them into defensive positions. They got no such instructions as the droid had given in return from the human security guard who reached for his pistol…The droid at the control station quickly locked the blast door shut a split second after Jedi CHORRO, Master CHUN, and HK-10P had entered…Before the droid could do any more harm and the guard could draw an aim on those that entered, HK-10A had blasted the droid behind the control station and the two senior Jedi had cut down the security guard…No movement came from the north (but it appeared there was a room that curved around the corner to the west), but the sound of heavy machinery and grinding came from the south, and it had intensified…It was very likely that whoever was in the next room hadn’t heard the commotion. At the southeastern wall, there was a relatively narrow doorway…That had to be where the machinery was located.

HK-10P: (observation) Had you halted, you would have been shot. (advice) Pay no attention to the directions that an enemy HK-10A may give.

CHUN: I go in first, CHORRO, you bring up the rear…HK-10, I need you right on my back. I need Myshalla to be ready to move in behind HK-10, and I need Xandor and Atlis to defend Myshalla – or be ready to engage the enemy on my command. Now, let’s go see what’s in the next room…We will be in close quarters from what I sense…no one shoot or strike at anything until we are fired upon.

CHORRO: As you say Master CHUN, I will cover the rear.

HK-10P: (observation from memory) In the next room to the south, there is a large catwalk that runs around the perimeter of the room. My counterparts patrol it. To the western side of the ground floor, there is the metal smelter pit…to the east in the middle portion of the room there is a cooling pit, and conveyor run pit. To the east of the run pit is a grinder. The grinder separates raw materials from the slag and removes impurities along the way. To the north of the purification grinder equipment is a turbolift that leads downward to one of the engine rooms. The bottom floor under the catwalk is populated with non-combatant workers. You should all be able to make them out. They are dirty, wearing rags and are unarmed.

Atlis runs to the doorway and gets as close as he can to it as he opens up to the life force of the people in the next room, attempting to sense how many or where they are compared to his position (life detection). He turns his lightsaber off but continues to hold it prepared for anything. "Masters give me a second to see what I can figure out about the captives before we storm the room. We do not want to have a hostage situation if we do not need to. One second, sir."

Xandor nods curtly and says, "Yes, Master. Myshalla, HK, after you..."

...Myshall took in the instructions from Master Choro, & nodded affirmatively. Making certain her vibroblade was ready to be drawn, she readied her firearm & looked to her cohorts. "I'm ready!"

...At least I'd better be, she thought to herself.

NARRATOR: The assault team moved into position, and CHUN prepared to rush...

"Masters give me a second to see what I can figure out about the captives before we storm the room. We do not want to have a hostage situation if we do not need to. One second, sir."

CHUN: (holds his hand up in the air and motions the others to hold)...Yes, of course. Stretch out with your feelings...What does the Force tell you?

NARRATOR: Atlis used the Force for knowledge, but he soon realized it wouldn't be enough. If there were enemies or workers in the next room, they were out of range...

CHUN: The Force itself told me nothing about the people in the next room...but the Force can still point you in the right direction my student....Use the Force to aid your ears. Do you hear the droid servos...the clanking of their metal feet upon a metal walkway? I can hear it even above the racket of the machinery...I can hear the steps alternating...there are five droids within 60 meters of our location...Five sets of steps ranging from closest to furthest upon the metal catwalk that HK-10 described. Can you smell the sweat of the unclean workers? The work they do at the bottom of the room is intensely hot and sweaty work....The smell fills the room and can only be smelled over the smelting process with the aid of the Force. If it would be undetectable if the workers were not currently working. The Force cannot tell us everything, but it can help with what we know already...to corroborate it. What my senses tell me...It supports HK-10's report...The enemy are above the workers who on the floor working. The enemy will have full range of attack upon us as we do them...We can use that to our advantage to avoid a crossfire.

HK-10P: (statement) Hostages won’t be taken by the droids. They care little for themselves and are no better than walking point and shoot blast rifles. They react with blast fire, not by using biological shields. The security guards in the room are much more unpredictable. If there is going to be a hostage situation, it will be from them.

CHUN: A risk we have to take if we are going to take those people out of there before this beast ship is shut down. He are being held hostage right now by time and this ship’s confines. We must act.

HK-10P: (agreement) I am right behind you Master Jedi.

NARRATOR: CHUN and HK-10P rush through the south passage with the others pulling up the rear. They soon found themselves on a catwalk looking over dirty men and women and huge machinery. Droids open fired at them as they approached…but the rush had been enough time to get a good foothold of the catwalk. Master CHUN had cut down a droid to the south of the passage. HK-10P fired a phenomenally accurate shot that struck another droid center mass towards the south central portion of the catwalk. To the north, Lightsabers swung to deflect blast shots from security personnel and droids. CHORRO sent one of the bolts back to the droid who sent it down range as Xandor and Atlis deflected bolts coming in at them and Myshalla from the security guard and a remaining HK-10A.

The workers looked up in amazement and horror at the rapid display of violence...CHUN could sense hope from them, but they were terrified. He suddenly realized that as a Jedi General he had faced another problem with non-combatants in the past much more horrifying than a hostage situation...He had to prevent panic and keep the workers below them and off the catwalk. He had to cut off their escape and control the situation.

CHUN: CHORRO! Take Myshalla and Xandor west...HK-10...Atlis, you're on me...We'll circle!

CHORRO: I hear and move as ordered!

Atlis immediately reacts moving quickly in an attempt to keep up with Master Chun, and sliding past HK to continue down the catwalk. "Right behind you, Master." He leans forward to help swing his rifle from his back as he transfers his lightsaber to his left hand. He lets the strap slide down his arm so he can get a grip of the rifle one handed. He throws it slightly to get his right hand on the trigger and grip and attempts to take the best pop shot he can (last of the mohicans style) at the droid across the room (H52 V64). If nothing else than he may be able to draw their fire his way instead of at the others as they attempt to flank him and the security guard.
