Review Player Adventure Logs

At the start of the game session before play a Game Master should ask players if they can see their adventure logs.  This will help you make adjustments to your story to consider what the players have done before.

  • Jewel of Yavin Act 1: Odds and Opportunities: in this module the players should have detailed everything they learned during the Investigation in Act 1.  This is mission critical info that can affect the bidding at the gala in Act 2.  A GM should review these adventure logs to be aware what a play knowns ahead of time.  Furthermore, the GM should note what the PCs have done to investigate Museum security, and also setup the slice shop.
  • The Hangover: in this module the players have interacted with one of the Bidders before, Vorse Tabarith and may have a prior relationship.  This relationship may be negative and can affect how the PCs interact with Vorse during the Gala.
  • Long Arm of the Hutt: Act 3: Return to Mos Shuuta:  A Game Master should note if a player has run this module and what the fate of Teemo the Hutt was.  If Teemo was killed at the hands of the Player Characters it will make Kaltho the Hutt very unfriendly to the PCs during the Gala Encounter.  This should not break out into a fight.

How to Introduce the Characters

The Jewel of Yavin – Act 2: The Greatest Caper is a direct follow-up to Odds and Opportunity.  Players who have already completed Act 1: Odds and Opportunity would just be able to transition in to Act 2.  Reference their Adventure Log from Odds and Opportunity to determine how the character’s prepared for the Heist.

If a player has never played Act 1: Odds and Opportunity.  They could have been hired by the PCs in Port Town to assist with the Heist of the Jewel of Yavin.  If none of the characters have played Act 1: Odds and Opportunity it is recommended that you run that adventure instead.  Click Here for Odds and Opportunity.

Mission Objectives

In Act 2: The Greatest Caper you have several mission objectives that need to be completed to complete the adventure.

  1.  Players need to manipulate the Bidders to stay in the Auction as long as possible and increase the amount they Bid to get top credits for the Jewel.
  2. Slice into the Cloud City Central Bank and steal the credits for the winning bid for the Jewel of Yavin.
  3. Successfully infiltrate the Museum after hours and steal the Jewel of Yavin gemstone.

In addition to the mission objectives detailed here. The Game Master may incorporate additional Faction Mission Objectives from Season 1:

  • Hutt Kajidics: If a player has tied their character to the Vanderijar Hutts they are motivated to have Kaltho the Hutt win the auction and end up with the winnings.  This is a faction based goal.
  • Jedi Knights: Convince Elazia to become your Mentor and teach you the ways of the Jedi.  If the players are not Force Sensitive then she becomes a contact.  Elazia can then inform her partner Hethan Romund to investigate the Dawn Temple.  This makes a great tie in to the Force and Destiny Beginner Box Adventure.

Ways to Expand the Adventure

When the PCs break into the Museum please note that one of the exhibits in the Museum is that of an ancient Jedi Temple known as the Dawn Temple.  This is a great way to foreshadow and setup the Force and Destiny storyline of Legends of the Galaxy.  It is how THE BARON first learns of the temple and in turn sends his ally Hethan Romund to investigate.  PCs are encouraged to gain some evidence of the Dawn Temple to be provided to THE BARON.

Furthermore, if any of the PCs are Force and Destiny Characters and they win the trust of Elaiza they can suggest that she go to check out the Dawn Temple which will add her as a mentor resource for the character.  The PC can then visit the Dawn Temple and complete the adventure series Mountaintop Rescue or Lure of the Lost.
