Okay it looks like Darius is leading everyone to the cantina without opposition. We will move on then.

You guys arrive at the cantina. For a city under siege the rebels don't seem to worried as there are a good number of them here living it up.

You see several people coming in and out of the place and you can hear music and general marry making going on inside. The guard around here seems quite lax.

What's your next move.


Male Mandalorean Soldier 4 | Vitality 50/50, Wounds 16/16 | AC 18, DR 5 | Fort +8, Ref +4, Will +2

Janitor slows and clears his throat, just loud enough for the others to hear. "We want to find an alley or some such nearby?" he whispers.


Male Mirikulian Noble 5

Zaelos nods in reply. "Yes, be careful. This could be a ruse to lure us into a trap."


Both Martian Level 20 invader

Perceptions will help with this and perhaps knowledge tactics.


Male Mirikulian Noble 5

Zaelos pauses and allows his Force sight to penetrate the cantina, looking for any signs of hidden bodies or any other Force users.

Perception (Force Sight): 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (12) + 9 = 21


Before the group approaches the cantina, Arana muses "I'm sure I could 'lure' a few of them, you know, the old fashioned way, but I think there's too many to try my 'trick' on ."

Once they arrive, she observes the personnel .

Perception 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (10) + 7 = 17
Knowledge (Tactics] 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (16) + 5 = 21


Male Human Soldier 5 - Vitality: 40/68

Darius begins to look around for opportune places to set up.

Perception: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (1) + 3 = 4

This area has no good locations to set up an ambush...


Male Mandalorean Soldier 4 | Vitality 50/50, Wounds 16/16 | AC 18, DR 5 | Fort +8, Ref +4, Will +2

Janitor looks around, checking for anything worth noticing, and runs everything through his mind, setting plans.

Perception: 1d20 + 1 ⇒ (15) + 1 = 16
Knowledge (tactics): 1d20 + 10 ⇒ (10) + 10 = 20


Male 9/82. Vitality Mandolorean Soldier

"Or we could offer to buy a few pilots a drink? But better to lure them into an alley or jump them as they pass through an essential thoughfare." Karval adds as he glances around the immediate area.

Perception: 1d20 ⇒ 5


Both Martian Level 20 invader

To save a lot of time, collectively you all cook up a plan. I apologize for the rush but it is a fairly simple plan.

The area around the cantina is surprisingly not well lit and there are a good number of dark spots between here and the base. The rebel pilots are going back and forth in groups ranging from as many as six to as few as two.

Night is fast approaching and it will be dark within the hour. Without enough searchlights in this area, you could easily ambush small groups of rebel pilots from dark places.

To be successful you would have to strike quickly and quietly. Best to have all of you attack the smallest groups possible and just collect uniforms a little at a time. To strike a large group would draw to much attention to the attacks.

There are plenty of shadowy areas from which to launch an ambush between here and the hanger.

Just let me know when you would like to launch the ambushes. Be sure that you are ready before you do.


Male 9/82. Vitality Mandolorean Soldier

"WE should act straight away, time is of the essence - especially with the air-strikes." Karval says, putting in his dour 2 creds worth; "With twilight starting to fall, it'd be good to grab everyone before full dark - even if we are exposed more than comfortable. People can get jumpy at night."


Male Human Soldier 5 - Vitality: 40/68

Darius adds, "We are all in uniforms. Acting like a small group of inebriated patrons in need of assistance might draw them close enough to take out."


Male Mandalorean Soldier 4 | Vitality 50/50, Wounds 16/16 | AC 18, DR 5 | Fort +8, Ref +4, Will +2

Janitor snorts. "Don't assume they'll be the helpful sort. Arana's charms could lure them over, or we could make up some excuse to pick a fight or get them over here."


Male Mirikulian Noble 5

Zaelos shakes his head. "No, let's keep this simple. We find a couple of good targets and ambush them. Quick and quiet."


At the second mention of her "charms", Arana has the grace to appear embarrassed, then quickly covers that up; relieved when Zaleos nixes her "luring" attempt, favouring a simper approach.

"I'm ready." she says.


Male Human Soldier 5 - Vitality: 40/68

I presume we need to make sure the flight suits don't look like they've been blasted all to hell. What is our plan to engage and take down quickly without damage or attention? Darius asks.


Male 9/82. Vitality Mandolorean Soldier

Drawing his blaster subtly, but meaningfully; "Stun setting, grapple & knife should do it. We grab the pilots and either stun them or put a knife to the throat." He suggests.


Male Mirikulian Noble 5

Zaelos nods. "Do it. No blood though. Stun should be good."


Arana makes sure her blaste is set for stun, then says "That looks like a likely spot" indicating an area bordered on both sides by shadow.


Male 9/82. Vitality Mandolorean Soldier

Covering the front, in case the subjects decide to sprint through the ambush, he draws his pistol. Nods and whispers to Janitor; "Say do you want to cut them off if they turn and flee?"


Male Mandalorean Soldier 4 | Vitality 50/50, Wounds 16/16 | AC 18, DR 5 | Fort +8, Ref +4, Will +2

Janitor also moves up with Karval, drawing his blaster and setting it to stun. "Yes, we should definitely keep them from running."


Male Human Soldier 5 - Vitality: 40/68

Darius mentions to the others, "My blaster doesn't have a stun setting. I can try to tackle them or take some other approach. Let me know."


Male 9/82. Vitality Mandolorean Soldier

"Just grab them, trip them or stop them from leaving." Karval tells Darius simply with a grunt of respect at the impressive side-arm of the soldier; "Unfortunately, that blaster could attract attention. We hopefully can simply roll them with too much bloodshed."


Both Martian Level 20 invader

I suppose your ready. Let's begin.

You guys stake out at one of the spots where you can ambush and not draw too much attention. There is also a female with them.

You wait for your prey and it isn't long before a group of three rebel pilots are alone. They have their flightsuits and helmets in possession and there is no one else around who would see it if they were attacked.

The only thing is, you would have to subdue all three of them or risk alerting others to this spot.

Do you wish to attack them now or wait for a smaller group.


Male Mirikulian Noble 5

Zaelos whispers, "I don't think we have time to wait for another group to happen by. If you think you can take them down, then do so. I will watch for any signs of alarm."

He will listen to any objections however and will acquiesce to a suggestion to wait for a smaller group.


Male Mandalorean Soldier 4 | Vitality 50/50, Wounds 16/16 | AC 18, DR 5 | Fort +8, Ref +4, Will +2

Janitor looks to the others and nods. "I think we have this, Commander."

Assuming no objections...

Janitor waits for the most prime moment to strike and then steps out, firing a stun blast at the nearest rebel.

Attack: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (16) + 7 = 23


Male 9/82. Vitality Mandolorean Soldier

Lithely moving to the group as they advance, Karval stalk his prey - choosing a different one to Janitor and fires his blaster.

DL17 to stun: 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (19) + 9 = 28
Stun DC 15, with 8m range. That's a potential crit, too!


Male Human Soldier 5 - Vitality: 40/68

Darius waits to see who does not appear to be stunned to tackle that individual.


Taking her cue from the two warriors, Arana levels her blaster and fires the stun ray.

Attack 1d20 + 5 - 2 ⇒ (9) + 5 - 2 = 12, stun DC 15


Male Mirikulian Noble 5

Zaelos focuses his attention on his surroundings, making sure no one interrupts the ambush.

Perception (Force Sight): 1d20 + 9 ⇒ (16) + 9 = 25


Both Martian Level 20 invader

The Two stuns that hit successfully stun the two of the pilots. The third appears to freak out and Darius moves to tackle.

Darius has the third pilot successfully tackled. You need to subdue him in no less that a single round or he will alert the nearest enemy.

Zaleos:

Your sight gives you the heads up that another group of rebels, three, have notice the blue flashes of the stun shots. They are moving to investigate. They will be here in three rounds.


Male Mirikulian Noble 5

Zaelos points off to an area behind him, "Hurry!" He says softly to the others. "We have company coming!"


Male 9/82. Vitality Mandolorean Soldier

Karval moves forward and fires his pistol at the third man, aiming to stun them.

Pistol DL17: 1d20 + 9 - 4 ⇒ (15) + 9 - 4 = 20 (for firing into the grapple?) DC15 Fort save for the pilot.

"Drag the other pilots into the shadows." he says in a low tone, hoping that the depths can conceal the unconscious figures from the 'company'. 'Maybe it's another pilot or 2 and we can be in luck for once.'


Male Human Soldier 5 - Vitality: 40/68

Darius attempts to stand the pilot up, while facing him towards the others in an effort to open up a better line of fire to stun him. If the pilot is successfully stunned, he drags him away with the others while trying to choke him to death in a headlock.


Male Mandalorean Soldier 4 | Vitality 50/50, Wounds 16/16 | AC 18, DR 5 | Fort +8, Ref +4, Will +2

If the the stun doesn't work, Janitor cracks the pilot upside the head with his own weapon.

Attack: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (12) + 8 = 20
Damage: 1d6 + 6 ⇒ (6) + 6 = 12

He then quickly drags the bodies to the shadows.


Both Martian Level 20 invader

Waiting to see what Arana does.


Arana rushes forward to help drag the pilots back into hiding, then gets ready for the others to approach.


Male Mirikulian Noble 5

Zaelos helps Arana drag the unconscious Rebel pilot out of sight, then draws his blaster and sets it to stun, ready to spring his own ambush on the approaching Rebels should they discover them.


Both Martian Level 20 invader

The Pilot toughs out the stun. The blow to the head also doesn't knock him out either. In Eote that combo would have definately knocked him out. He struggles and attempts to call for help.

Last round to subdue him before he alerts the others


Male Mandalorean Soldier 4 | Vitality 50/50, Wounds 16/16 | AC 18, DR 5 | Fort +8, Ref +4, Will +2

Knowing the situation is quickly getting out of hand, Janitor draws the knife from his harness and plunges it into the man's throat, angling the blade upwards so any blood sprays down the pilot's own body and not on the helmet.

Attack: 1d20 + 8 ⇒ (8) + 8 = 16
Damage: 1d4 + 6 ⇒ (2) + 6 = 8


Both Martian Level 20 invader

Really? Your stabbing him with that much detail? You will hit but not the throat. Your attack combined the non lethal is enough to cause him to pass out unconscious.

You all drag the body's to a dark alley and need to make hurried stealth checks. You have the cover of twilight and shadows giving you an advantage.

You guys will have to forgive me on any rule issues from this point on. I am currently in four Edge of the Empire campaigns, so those rules are strongly on the brain right now


Male Human Soldier 5 - Vitality: 40/68

I actually thought of pulling a vibrodagger to try a critical stab as wel before I read your postl.

Watching Janitor, Darius thinks I was about to do that.

Darius tries to move to bodies to the alley with as little noise as possible.

Stealth: 1d20 + 7 ⇒ (2) + 7 = 9

There is no ACP in that roll. Please subtract the appropriate amount if there is ACP.


Male Mirikulian Noble 5

Zaelos winces at the sight of the blood but realizes nothing can be done about it now. She slinks into the shadows as best he can, gripping his blaster tightly.

Stealth: 1d20 + 3 ⇒ (2) + 3 = 5


Male Mandalorean Soldier 4 | Vitality 50/50, Wounds 16/16 | AC 18, DR 5 | Fort +8, Ref +4, Will +2

Sorry, was that a problem? Janitor's done covert ops like this before, and I didn't think it would be an issue. If you'd rather I not do things like that, it's fine, just let me know.


Male 9/82. Vitality Mandolorean Soldier

Karval had seen enough blood and violence that he just nods at Janitor, it may not have been what he'd have done - but it was efficient. He moves back dragging the last of the bodies into the shadows.

Stealth: 1d20 + 5 ⇒ (2) + 5 = 7

He glances around for any 'dumpsters' or receptacles to put the pilots in, once they are bound and gagged.


Unfazed by Janitor's lethat solution to the struggling pilot, Arana grabs a hold of his flight suit and helps the other pull his body into concealment

Stealth 1d20 + 6 ⇒ (13) + 6 = 19


Male 9/82. Vitality Mandolorean Soldier

Glancing around warily from the shadows, Karval knows they haven't been too silent. However could this be the opportunity they need to get the remaining pilot's outfits? His knuckles whiten upon the blaster.
