The group finalized the terms of their contract with the antiquities dealer, Nils Obdris. They will venture to the planet of Pax’Tharkas where a private firm has recent been excavating Ithorian artifacts. The group will recover items that Nils will be able to resell. Nils agreed upon an up front payment of 250 credits for each person, and a negotiable reward for any artifacts they bring back. In particular, Nils is looking for a small stone orb with symbols etched on its sides.
The journey to Pax’Tharkas was largely uneventful. The team decided to opt for a stealthy approach to the basecamp, and put their ship down some kilometers away. A slightly bumpy landing necessitated some repairs to the still unnamed vessel, so D4-V3 stayed onboard while the trio of Asha, Tharen, and the Colonel moved on to the basecamp.
Their approach was stealthy, but upon closer inspection it became clear that the camp was deserted. Signs of a battle are evident; blaster impacts dot the temporary structures. Much of the equipment is still powered on however, save for the communication array; which is a total loss. Next the group prepares to enter the main tent, and hopefully find some answers.
