Welcome to Onderon, host of the second round of the swoop racing championship series.
The Eagle's bastion crew contains two of the favored racers of the event. Many credits are being bet on Farstar and Drexl to take 1st and 2nd place. Ota Coss stands to make a fortune if they can pull it off.
HK-51 Rust had personal business to take care of, ensuring the safety and security of his former master's widow and son.
HK then went Bounty Hunting, capturing several small bounties and getting a lead towards capturing or killing the leaders of a major criminal organization.
Meanwhile, Drexl prepared for the race and Ota Coss made bets and beat many cantina patrons in Pazaak and drinking contests.
Farstar continued to train in the ways of controlling the Force, with an air of mystery surrounding his methods. Breden thek continued modifying his gear, and Farstar's swoop bike.
Ota Coss told Farstar and Thek to go help out another racer, who Ota has also placed bets on to come in 3rd place. The two force-sensitive "heroes" found the racer being beaten to death in an alley. They quickly dispatched the thugs using their skills with their lightsabers. They left one survivor and brought him, critically wounded, back to the ship for interrogation.
Doctor Krog saved the lives of Shax the racer, and the mysterious thug. After finding out that HK-51 Rust was already shadowing the targets of their ire, Thek and Farstar went to help him acquire these bounties. The found them in a barely livable hovel surrounded by junkies. The three used stealth to get inside the den of drug-abuse, and were able to stun the bounties. They then turned them over to the authorities for the reward. HK gave his allies a small percentage each for their assistance.
The day of the race had finally arrived! Queen Tallia gave a rousing speech to start the spectacle, and then the race was on! Farstar took an early lead, with Drexl and Shax vying for second place. The first lap went around the entire walled outskirts of Iziz, and tested each racers stamina to continue. The second lap went through the forested area closest to Iziz, and required quick reflexes to avoid potentially deadly traps. As the racers entered the city for the final lap, Farstar had a huge lead, pushing his Swoop bike to its limits. Drexl finished in 2nd place, and Shax in 3rd just a fraction of a second behind him. For a long moment it appeared there would be an upset, with another racer briefly entering 2nd position, but he quickly lost control and crashed his Swoop, although he walked away seemingly without a scratch.
As the racers did a Victory Lap and waved to the crowds, a ferocious and seemingly feral Wookie let out a loud roar and opened fire on the racers! The crowd fled from around him, and before security could contain him the Bounty Hunter Jynx Starkiller flew in and began an epic battle. She began by hailing blaster bolts down with her dual blasters, then used her wrist-mounted flamer to ignite the stands in a circle of fire around the Wookie. He leaped into the air to meet her, but she quickly swapped her pistols for Lightsabers and cut the Wookie's legs off. He defiantly reached up in an attempt to continue fighting, but she blasted him and ignited what was left of his corpse until all that remained of him was ash.
Queen Tallia announces to the crowd that there is nothing to worry about now that the threat has been silenced, and calls on order out that everyone in attendance join her in a toast, with the royal house covering the expense.
The racers and their honored guests are now being escorted to the Palace for the victory ceremony and celebration.
