Star Wars: Rogue Traders
The Dejarik Puzzle
An entrepreneur has engaged the crew in an unusual treasure hunt
A delivery to Dynann goes awry when it turns out their cargo is actually a live K’lor’slug. The creature breaks loose, kills its ‘owner’ and runs rampage on the ship. After ‘dealing’ with the problem they meet the intended recipient of the now less than living goods; an entrepreneur by the name of Chessel Bard who then engages them in an unusual treasure hunt; specifically, unusual fauna.
After a second infestation of K’lor’slugs (from eggs left behind by the first) they make good on their previous failure and collect the reward.
When they receive their second target; a M’onnok the crew put together the possibility that Chessel is assembling a live Dejarik board!
A series of grizzly and inexplicable murders have occurred across the station
There is a ‘crazy old man’ on the station and he might have a trick or two to teach the crew’s resident Jedi
The crew unearth a clandestine criminal organisation, possibly operating out of the station.
Official Station Security Report
Whilst there is very little evidence of organised crime being conducted on The Eye there is intelligence to suggest that a criminal enterprise known as Reach may be using The Eye as a base for operations beyond the station. It is equally possible that Reach is a fabrication to screen the activities of lesser criminals wishing to conduct activities with relative anonymity.
Various individuals have been identified as possible contacts or operators for Reach, but no arrests or confessions have been made.
Perhaps the most compelling rumour regarding Reach is that of its leader or leaders known only as The Grell.
It is not known whether The Grell is an individual or group of individuals but The Grell it the accepted figurehead of the organisation, believed to be based on The Eye. There is some evidence to suggest that The Grell is of alien origin beyond known-space, perhaps having arrived on The Eye long before it was adopted as a conduit for trade. This would certainly explain why the headquarters if on the station are as of yet unknown.
Reach is believed to be responsible for smuggling arms and controlled substances; professional and political assassinations and kidnappings; supporting rogue states, high level extortion and possibly slavery.
Reach and it’s leader if they exist, should be considered dangerous in the extreme.
