Re: Strike Force Isk - Takeover at Whisper Base (IC)

Pushing your way into the control center, blasters drawn, you find yourself in a room full of computer screens and startled operators. When they see your weapons, they raise their hands in surrender. Sweeping the room, you see various non-commissioned officers, but no lieutenant.

You cautiously pick your way through the room, taking the officers' sidearms and looking for where the commanding officer might have gone. As you take one officer's pistol, he shudders slightly.

You wheel on the surrendering officers. Before you can even raise your voice in anger, one of them shudders again, and blurts out a confession: "Lieutenant Sarev's headed to the comm station a few klicks from here! He's probably sending a message to the Moff that Whisper Base has fallen!" The other officers in the room turn to look darkly at the man who snapped. You'll need to intercept Lieutenant Sarev before he can report in!

"Thank you for cooperating." Telle smiled. "How did he leave the base, and when did he leave?"

"We can help you," Telle told the officer who had spoken up originally. "Just tell us. Sarev obviously doesn't care about you, or he wouldn't have left you behind. The Alliance holds no ill will toward you, personally. You have my word, we will keep you safe and even transport you off world if you wish."

charming the officers: 2eP+2eA+1eC+1eD+1eS 0 successes, 1 advantage, 1 Triumph, 1 Despair

Can I use the Triumph to shift one of the officer's sympathies to the Rebellion? Maybe he has been yelled at one too many times.
For the Advantage, I'd like Telle to notice something important.

"Uh-oh!" BX vocalized, his typical exclamation distorted by the stormtrooper helmet still on his head.  Without even waiting for Telle to finish asking her first question, the battledroid bolted out of the room and down the hallway to the first garage door, quickly tapping the control to open it.  After all, there were only two ways out of the base, and they'd just come from one of them!

Taking a half step inside the flash-charred room, he surveyed the  room for a sign of exit, all the while calling out.  "Counterpart-TwoAr?  Did you see the Lieutenant come through here?"

I'll edit in the Perception check once I have a difficulty.

"Negative."

For a moment BX stood there dumbfounded, vocalizing a long "um..." as his processors tried to catch up with the inevitable conclusion to the information he's just aqired. Eventualy they just agree to fail, and he falls back on letting his organic compatriouts know what he's learned. Grabbing the holomessenger off his leg (next to the fusion cutter) and presses the voice-only button for the team comms. "Um. Troopers. The Leutenant didn't go through the garage."

Moving at a very rapid pace now, Telle motioned towards her team. "Guys, let's find a way to get the shuttle bay open." While she said this, she examined the desk, looking for tell-tale signs of Sarev's departure.

BX wrote:"Um. Troopers. The Lieutenant didn't go through the garage."


"Copy, BX, I think we've got something here. Can you exit into the jungle from where you are? It seems the Lieutenant has found a way to leave, but we might able to cut him off.

"Dewey, you should probably go with him!"

"Roger, Roger." BX replied, acknowledging the order. Finally taking off the helmet and dropping it to the ground beside him, the droid ran down the stairs and into the carbon-scored (and partly cleaned) garage. Trusting that the main garage door was still inoperable, he instead made a direct line for the maintenance hatch the group had originally used to sneak in through and tried to make his way quickly outside.

"I'll go join BX in the garage." Dewy responds. He heads back down the corridor to the garage.

Telle fails to discover any reason why the NCO glanced at the LT's desk. In her rush, she makes it harder for anyone else coming after her to find anything.

V'Jax pulls his comlink out as he starts running towards the hangar.

"Prax, I'm on my way to join you in the shuttle. Orun should have the doors open soon."

Telle, frustrated with the lack of success, shoved the desk against the wall.

Hefting her blaster, she turned and waved it in the general direction of the opposite wall. "Everyone, face against the wall, now. Comply and you will make it home to celebrate another Life Day."

Orun, visibly dismayed by Telle's exasperation, makes his way to one of the consoles. After physically plugging it in - those crafty Imperials - his long, elegant fingers start manually tapping in codes:

Admin
Password


Orun's head tilts as the command is accepted and he's granted full access to the base's systems. Well alright then - fingers fly across the console then, hastily sending the command to open the hangar doors.

He keys his comlink.

"The doors are open; I will shut them after you launch to ensure nobody else leaves via that route."

Once the shuttle is airborne you quickly spot the Imperial Lieutenant racing away towards the nearby comm station aboard a speeder bike, which must have been hidden somewhere outside of the base. A couple of blasts from the shuttle's guns is all it takes to permanently end his threat to your mission. The bike explodes, leaving nothing but small pieces of wreckage and unidentifiable body parts scattered across many square meters of jungle.

The base is secure. For now.

“Trooper-Commander,” BX said into the commlink a few minutes later, calling back to base from out in the jungle. “I’m at the blast site, there are pieces of the lieutenant everywhere. Looks like everything is secure.”

The droid took one more look around the wreckage as he finished saying that, feeling like it was his duty to check one more time just to be sure. “okay, heading back to base so we can finish securing the prisoners and free BX-2R.”

Back at the base, as they were all taking inventory, Telle remarked, "We'll need some more food here, and soon..."

During the inventory process, Telle took one of the vibroknives and sheath it in one of her bootstraps. "The rest of these can be used as part of a standard issue package for any new recruits we manage to train here," she suggested to the others.

...

After the prisoners were taken away and a detailed report was filed with Alliance Command, Telle went around and made sure that each speeder bike had a full canteen of water and a single-meal ration pack loaded onto it. The remaining 10 canteens and 4 ration packs she stowed accessibly in the mess hall.
