Minutes go by as the strangers search the Raptor, finally finding the strange little droid and dragging it off the Raptor. At the same time the Devaronian working on the KAWD finally finishes the removing the cuffs and ion grenade.

"So, I take it we may now be going." The tam aboard the Raptor look towards the voice to find their missing teammate boarding the ship as the strange team exits. Giric explains that he just barely managed to escape being killed by all the Sithspawn, though he had been injured when he fell out of the speeder truck. The only thing that had prevented him from being killed was his unfurling his wings. He had managed to find a ship with someone who claimed to have been kidnapped by the Mandalorians and they had allowed him to try and call for help. But before do so a shuttle from the advanced forces had discovered them and picked him up. It'd been on Giric's instructions that the Republic and the small unit of Freedom Warriors had begun bombing the area of the cave. He'd also been brought to the Freedom Warriors ship, The Code, where he'd told his fellow Freedom Warriors what the Raptor and Reylan's fighter looked like. It had been they who had interceded on the teams behalf.

Once all is taken care of, the Raptor departs from The Code and Reylan docks with the larger ship. He his surprised to find Giric aboard the ship and once again the explination of Girics survival has to be told. The team make a couple of micro jumps before realizing that without a jump beacon they can't be sure how to get to any place. Then determine to somehow travel to Giric's home world so as to deliver Gerl. Giric forces all off the ship's bridge and proceeds to enter a set of coordinates into the navi-computer. Once done, the team members who serve as a bridge crew return to the bridge and make the jump.

Syllri and Daevon proceed to speend most of the time in hyperspace tending to Gerl and attaching the droid arm picked up to use as a prosthetic to Ailyn's arm. After a few days the mental affects pass, Roth stops drooling and once more feels his connection to the Force while both Ailyn and the KAWD recain their memories. Ailyn proceeds to spend most of the trip locked in a crew cabin, becoming cold towards the rest of the team as her adversarial attitude towards them returns. However, Reylan's promise of getting her a prosthetic arm seems to be the only thing that prevents her from trying to attack any of the team or sabotage the ship.

Reylan and Roth both spend a lot of time practicing using their lightsabers with Cailum when they can pull him away from the prisoners. The KAWD spends frustrating hours trying to translate what was discovered on Tatooine with the occasional aid of Ali. For her part, Ali spends a lot of time exploring the ship and inspecting much of what was taken on Tatooine. She points out to the Jedi that the swords the Mandalroians had had on their persons all have strange gems to them. She also tries experimenting with one of the lightsabers with the hand guard taken off of Rakka Mat'el'ide. Cailum points out that what she is experimenting with is actually a lightfoil instead of a lightsaber.

After several weeks in hyperspace the Raptor finally drops out. Both Giric and Cailum go to the bridge and look out asmembers of the team start taking up positions. Reylan launches and takes up an escort position in his still damaged fighter. Though he doesn't yet have his pulse-wave cannons back, he still has duties to preform. Ahead of the two ships looms a terrestial planet orbited by a pair of moons.


"Vyrwen," Cailum says, looking out at the planet. "Homeworld of the Yegoglar."

"Asdisa and Skakol are rising over the lands of Clan Gynn," Giric says "Evening is coming."

When Reylan meets Giric he is happy to see the man alive. He says "I am sorry that I had to leave you behind." obviously broken up about it. But Giric can hear in the voice that Reylan would do it again if the situation came again. "I hope you can forgive me."

Reylan spends the journey working on his damaged ship, trying to restore the cannons. He elicits as much help as he can from the rest of the team as he can. In his down time he can be found on the Bridge of the Raptor, familiarizing himself with the controls of the larger ship.

If the weapons on his ship are not fully repaired by the time they relapse Reylan opts to stay on the Raptor to act as pilot. His ship not able to help much without any offensive capabilities.

Making the most of the fact it does not need to sleep the KAWD spends most of the simulated night time in the lounge, plugging into a recharge station to top up it's batteries rather than powering down. With few other beings awake the KAWD spends this time attempting to translate the clue, while it makes no significant progress it's tireless efforts do unlock a deeper understanding of the language.

When the rest of the crew is active the KAWD divides it's time between examining the prisoners (paying particular attention to the work that has been done on Gerl), monitoring the ship and pestering everyone about knowledge of the Jedi order, even going so far as to request a force sensitve being summons the holocron Jedi for questioning.

OOC:
Spend 2CPs on Languages: Ancient Yegoglarian 3D+2 -> 4D
Spend 2CPs on (A) Medicine 1D -> 1D+1
Spend 2CPs on Nanite Repair 2D+1 -> 2D+2
Spend 2CPs on Communications 2D (Mechanical) -> 2D+1

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

The KAWD takes up a position on the bridge at one of the terminals so it can work the ships communication array.

"Querry: Does the ship need to innitiate communication with the planet?"

KAWD

"Yes, you do that," Giric says, seemingly not paying the KAWD much attention.

[internal]Being Giric is attempting to acknowledge the Krath Advanced War Droid as little as possible.
Explanations:
1) Being Giric is annoyed with the Krath Advanced War Droid.
2) Being Giric is preoccupied with the idea of returning to his homeworld.
3) Being Giric is uncomfortable revealing the location of his homeworld.

Possible solutions:
1) Ignore this unless it becomes a problem.
2) Establish a dialogue in which emotions and other organic foibles are discussed.[/internal]


The KAWD activates the Raptor's communication systems and attempts to contact the planet.

"This is the Corellia StarDrive DB-84-B2 requesting permission to land."

OOC: Communications 2D+1

Reylan flips a switch from the cockpit and runs a quick scan of the area. He does one to check if there is any ships in the area, then another on the planet below to get general information about the planet.

KAWD

The KAWD opens a channel but gets absolutely no response. It then proceeds to try it's message on other channels for the local frequncy. It double checks to make certain the system is working and quickly determines that it can contact Reylan's fighter. But the appears absolutely no channels that allow communication with the planet.

"Have you failed yet?" Giric asks, a hint of humor in his voice.

"There is no communicating with Vyrwen," Cailum says, turning to the KAWD.

Reylan

Reylan preforms a scan of the immediate area, detecting absolutely no ships anywhere near either his fighter or the Raptor. He then turns the sensors on the planet below.

Quote:
Readings

Atmosphere: Breathable without special equipment required by most species.
Gravity: Standard gravity
Terrain: Scan suggests most common terrains are glens, pine forests, lochs, mountains, oceans, seas, islands, glaciers.
Lengthen of day: Current rotation suggest a day of twenty-four standard hours.

No starport detected. Many settlements detected, though no significant metropolis detected.

Many lifeforms detected.

No starship energy signals detected

No vehicle energy signals detected.

"With no communication we cannot announce our presence or intentions to local authorities. It is likely that those who have ventured here before will be aware of procedures that may signal our desire for co-operation rather than warfare. Input from this unit not required. Defaulting to translation functions unless further action is required."

OOC: Ancient Yegoglarian 4D... perhaps we'll get some idea where we should head to next.

Reylan informs the bridge crew "It seems Giric is correct, there is no recognizable energy sources down there. It would seem Giric will have to lead us down." he says looking over his shoulder for direction.

KAWD

"Trust me, you dod not want to start a fight with the clans," Giric says, still not turning to face the droid. The KAWD notes he seems to be staring at the larger of the two moons, almost reverently. "We are far more powerful than we appear. It is a good thing for the galaxy that the clans are not united."

Reylan

"Just don't openly attack anyone unless provoked. And treat this visit as an honor," Cailum says to Reylan. "Not very many beings in the galaxy know of the Yegoglars or their homeworld, but others have visited the planet. The Yegoglars do fear outsiders will try to conqure their homeworld and that it will be a return to the old days. That is why you never ask a Yegoglar found off Vyrwen about their homeworld. But those outsiders who visit and treat the Yegoglar with respect are welcome. Just as long as they don't reveal what they learn to the outside world. "

(OOC: will make the roll soon, Essomian)

KAWD

The KAWD turns back to try and translate the clue.

"Substandard progress with translation, continuing until further tasks require the Krath Advanced War Droid's attention."

OOC: No need to make a bunch of translation rolls unless you want to, after all someone on the planet will be able to do it. Just thought it's something the KAWD could do while we we're coming in to land.

"Sounds like I should break out my formal robes for this foray. No sense running the risk of offending someone due to my distaste for formalities...

"Giric? Master Cailum? What else can you tell us to prepare us for meeting the Yegoglars?"

"Addendum to Being Roth's question. Should the Krath Advanced War Droid utilize it's medical droid disguise or should the Krath Advanced War Droid be open about it's origins and purpose?"

Roth

"There's a bit that should probably be kept secret," Cailum says. "They are, as Giric has said, a clan based society. Each clan is lead by a chieftan. The clans aren't united. At least not yet, They probably will never be truely united, but they have started to develop what could be called a central government. We won't be allowed anywhere near there. Things are tenous enough as it is with the clans, allowing outsiders anywhere near where this government is forming will be far more likely to set off planet wide wars. No, we should land in the Gynn territory."

KAWD

"Don't bother with the disguise," Cailum says, turning from Roth to the droid. "There isn't a single medical droid in the known galaxy that knows anything about Yegoglar physiology. Actually, it might be more problematic if you use it here. They might think you're here to study them, which could cause serious problems for us.
