Prepping this Adventure

Reading the Adventure:

It is expected that the Game Master has read all of Enemy of my Enemy Act 1: Crime in the Clouds prior to running this adventure.

Other Rules to Consider:

Jewel of Yavin: Cloud City Gaaziteer: It is recommended that the Game Master read the beginning of The Jewel of Yavin.  This section of the book has allot of information on places in Cloud City the player characters could visit during this adventure and will provide the GM with may familiar locations to the Players.

Running the Investigation:  It is recommended that you also take a look at the “Running an Investigation” rules found in the Bounty Hunter Supplement Book, No Disintigrations pg. 75, but also in the Sentinal Supplement Book, Endless Vigil pg. 80.

Urban Environments: It is recommended that you also take a look at the “Bringing Urban Environments to Life” rules in Endless Vigil pg. 66.

 

Reviewing Character 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: If the players have won the Cloud City Grand Prix in this adventure, they can attempt to collect the 20,000 credit winnings from this race.
  • Jewel of Yavin Act 2 – The Greatest Caper: In this adventure the Player Characters directly interact with Vorse Tabarith and may develop a relationship at the Gala.  This relationship can affect how the Players interact with Vorse.
  • Jewel of Yavin Act 3 – Escape to the Clouds: in this module the players are working with Aris Shen the wife of Vorse Tabarith.  At the end of Act 3 players can be enemies of Aris Shen or have helped her leave her husband Vorse Tabarith.  Either way this can dramatically affect the relationship they have with Vorse.
  • Jewel of Yavin Act 3 – Escape to the Clouds: Reviewing how the caper, to steal the Jewel of Yavin, went in this adventure can affect the relationships with the characters and the wing guard.  The Wing Guard may be on the hunt for the PCs and they may be treated more harshly during the arrest and interrogation.  On the flip side they may have turned the Jewel over to Lando Calrissian and have a good relationship with the Wing Guard.
  • Jewel of Yavin Act 3 – Escape to the Clouds: The fate of Arend Shen is important as if he escaped and is still out to get the PCs is relevant to the Game Master adding a bonus encounter where he tries to get revenge on the PCs.  Or perhaps if he was arrested the PCs encounter him in the Cloud City lock up while waiting to speak to Marek Quay.
  • The Hangover: In this adventure the PCs can run a foul of Vorse Tabarith and may owe him a favor.  This is a great explination as to why the PCs are working for Vorse in this adventure.

How to Introduce the Characters

In Enemy of my Enemy: Crime in the Clouds your characters are hired by Vorse Tabarith to pick up a special shipment and deliver it to it’s end buyer.  Vorse has few details on the mission other than stating that you need to pick up the shipment from Kavin Rel a.k.a the Fixer, who has a warehouse near the surface levels of Cloud City.  If the PCs participated in the Jewel of Yavin storyline or the Hangover.  They should already be familiar with Vorse Tabarith. 

If you are a new PC then Vorse, a local crime boss from port town in Cloud City hires the PCs to pull off this job.  A GM is encouraged to begin the adventure at Maz Kanata’s castle on Takodana.  Vorse can be introduced to the PCs by Maz Kanata and hired to pull of this job.

Mission Objectives

  1. Players meet with, The Fixer to pick up a cargo only to find him dead and must survive an attack by assassians
  2. The Players must investigate the Cargo and Fixer in order to determine where it needs to be delivered too.

Ways to Expand the Adventure

PCs familiar with Vorse Tabarith may have a history with the crime boss.  A Game Master can expand this adventure by adding additional scenes where the PCs interact with Vorse or go to Vorse for resources.  See the Star Wars: Jewel of Yavin adventure module for more information on Vorse Tabarith and Cloud City.  During the events of the adventure the PCs can visit Vorse only to find that Stim’s men recently hit Vorse’s private bay in Cloud City.  This can further ratchet up the tension and threat of Stim and his men.  Plus by completing this mission will reduce obligation owed to Vorse Tabarith by 5.

Furthermore, if the PCs ran a foul of Tirsia Lek a.k.a Zekra Fol during the events of Jewel of Yavin then she may be working with and assisting Marek Quay.  The GM is encouraged to bring up the events of Jewel of Yavin during their interrogation by Marek Quay.

Finally, if the PCs won the Cloud City Grand Prix in Act 1 of Jewel of Yavin and the PCs are not wanted by the wing guard.  At the start of the adventure the PCs should be allowed to recover their winnings as enough time has passed since the race occurred.
