For Those Who Will Fall

Out of the Gate - Hunting Rancors

Don't you wish every adventure started this way

After departing from Nar Shadda, the group arrives on Felucia sometime later. The twi’lek tells the group of their job, to hunt down two rancors, one male, one female. With little protest, the twi’lek armed the group with heavy stun weapons and electro nets. He and his wife would get into high places and snipe the rancor from above with darts purchased from Nar Shadda. With Ayla and Silver leading the attack, the group found a rancor in a small canyon. There, the group began its attacks, however, the rancor resisted most stun weapons, it either rebounding off its tough hide, or the beast resisting the stun itself. The rancor unleashed a vicious roar, unsettling most of the group, even terrifying The Jawa into retreating. The first dart was fired by the twi’lek’s wife at this point, which the rancor resisted easily.

It was in this moment that Ayla felt the situation hopeless and began using her lethal weapons against it, first tossing a hand grenade, which peppered the rancor with shrapnel. The beast roared with anger before going after the group. Everyone in the group began to fall back, except Silver, Ayla, and Revan who tried to remain against the rancor. After resisting another stun, Revan began backing away from the beast. The rancor took a swipe at Ayla, leaving a large gash in her chest. Ayla and Silver took the chance to retreat before they received more injuries. Another two darts were fired then, in an attempt to take down the rancor. Again, the beast resisted and pursued the group. As the rancor charged the retreating group, they fired another volley of stun blasts at it, only for it to rebound off its flesh or for it to resist them. Ayla opened fire with a volley of lethal blasts, most of which did not damage the rancor. Before it lashed out against Ayla, the twi’lek stepped in front of the rancor, taking a claw for her. Finally, the twi’lek’s wife fired her third dart, which dug deeply into the rancor’s flesh. It wavered for a few seconds before collapsing at the feet of the heroes. The twi’lek yelled to the group to subdue the rancor. Using their one remaining net gun, the group netted and bound the rancor. The Headtails was then called with a slave circuit to pick up the rancor.

The twi’lek then led the group onto their next objective, the female rancor. Outside a cave where the rancors had been nesting, the twi’lek used the two Gamorrean members of the crew to draw out the mother rancor. When it arrived at the entrance, the group netted it and attempted to stun it. It shrugged off the first volley and swiped at the twi’lek, narrowly missing him. The group tried again, this time using two electro-nets, which brought the rancor down. Immediately, the whole team got onto the stunned rancor and began to continuously stun it while binding the creature. Again the Headtails was called in to gather up the creature. This time, it attracted the attention of a young rancor, which charged out of the cave to save its mother. The twi’lek drew its attention to him and the two Gammoreans, leading it into the forests of Felucia. Silver and Ayla take this moment to steal two rancor eggs from the cave. The heroes and the Jawa then boarded the Headtails to return to their original campsite.
