It is a period of unrest and opportunity in the galaxy. The Galactic Empire struggles to maintain control in the midst of civil war. Meanwhile, scoundrels and smugglers, explorers and expatriates, and fringers of all types scramble for a living on the edges of galactic civilization. It is a hard life, but these renegades have more freedom and opportunity than any citizen of the Core Worlds.
On the desert world of TATOOINE, a few such renegades have run afoul of a local crime boss, TEEMO THE HUTT. Trapped in the tiny spaceport of Mos Shuuta, the renegades had no choice but to steal a starship and flee Teemo’s forces. Fortunately, a suitable starship has recently docked at the landing bay: a freighter called the KRAYT FANG, captained by a Trandoshan slaver named Trex.

Quick thinking led them to slicing the computers and unlocking the mag-locks on the Krayt Fang, before dashing off to claim their new ship.
Trex was waiting for them however! After a fierce battle, the Trandoshan lay dead, dumped in the desert heat. That’s when Teemo played his trump card; Imperial TIE fighters! The Krayt Fang raced off into the sands, The battle was brief, but hard fought. The stolen freighter took heavy damage, but the fighters were destroyed.
Making it off world, the party re-christened the ship the CLOSE CALL, and flew off to better opportunities…
