Chapter 4: Red Blades

After Order 66, few Jedi dare to venture outside the shadows—rumors of the dark and terrible Darth Vader haunting even their waking moments. Yet, some Jedi find this life of fear unbearable. The Empire is always watching, and Vader himself is eager to confront any Jedi that might bring him closer to the whereabouts of his betrayer, Obi-Wan Kenobi.

As Shoshannah reaches out with the Force, smoke begins pouring out of the building's wiring, as if there was an electrical fire. In fact, the wiring is fine--but it may allow them to slip past the Dark Jedi hunting them.

Granite jumps at the smoking wiring, his instincts making him take a short step towards the panels to begin repairs. But he can tell Shoshannah is doing this on purpose, so he fights his engineering nature and steps away. "Unless you all think we can take this guy, and I don't, we run for the ship and try to take off and flee. Anyone else got any other ideas?"

"To the ship," Janos orders the others (quietly), hoping they listen. "If must needs, I will turn and keep him at bay, but we must go if we can."

Upon suggestion, Uri immediately begins to move through the Force-summoned shroud and toward the exit, feeling like a youngling again sneaking off at night seconds away from being caught, only now he had his hands on something bigger than a midnight snack.

I was actually waiting on a "senior" character to make a suggestion. Uri will commit his full turn to moving out of the ship with Stealth.

Shoshannah calls upon the Force which uses her fear to guide black smoke to provide some concealment for their escape.

Using the smoke, Shoshannah and the other Jedi move out into the hallway closer to the exit to the facility's exterior.

Distances
- Jedi to doors (to outside/landing pad) Short (Long distance from doors to the ship)
- Jedi to Grand Inquisitor - Short

Round 2: **Grand Inquisitor**, Jedi

"This course of action is most unwise young ones." The Pau'an warrior states as he proceeds calming walking forward at a slow, methodical pace. As he nears the edges of the smoke, he continues into it using his lightsaber's red blades to lit his way. The Jedi watch as they see the red blades through the smoke coming directly towards them.

Inc = talk
Man = move 1, to short, which jedi moved 1, so that means they are in same range now
Act = convert to maneuver, move again - in engaged now with Jedi
Round 2: Grand Inquisitor, **Jedi**

Distances
- Jedi to doors (to outside/landing pad) Short
- Jedi to Grand Inquisitor - Engaged
Uri - 7 wounds, (fear) 2 setbacks until end of encounter
Granite - 4 strain, (fear) 2 setbacks until end of encounter
Janos - 3 strain
Shoshannah -

Red Blade Sister - unconscious
Grand Inquisitor
FYI Shoshannah will need another Force use to keep concealment, due to lack of having the commit upgrade

Shoshannah finds herself wanting to hold her breath from the tension of their situation. She has to remind herself of her Jedi training to keep breathing evenly. She reaches out with the Force to continue maintaining the literal smokescreen concealing them from the Inquisitor's view.
Action: Use the Force
Maneuver: Keep moving towards the ship

Uri focuses on the red sabers. Even if they escaped the second Sith, wouldn't there be stormtroopers outside, waiting for them? In a state of panic, he calls upon his mind trick to throw up a shield...
_
Action: Blur on Uri. Commit Light pips to sustain.
All other: Move with the group.

Shoshannah UTF
skill 2 FP
Results: 2 dark side pips
In order to maintain the concealment, you'll need to use both darkside points.
Shoshannah calls upon the force, but only feels a coldness in response.

Uri UTF
skill 2fp
results: 2 lightside, 1 dark side

spend 1 lightside for misdirect basic
commit 2 FD to maintain
Uri's eyes are focused on the lightsaber's red blades. Channeling the Force, the padawan creatures an illusion that alters his perceived appearance.
Allow time in case someone wants to do something with their action, since everyone will be only using their maneuver to move

Shoshannah doesn't want to draw on the Dark Side of the Force, but she wants to die at the hands of this Inquisitor even less. Feeling guilty, she pulls on to maintain their concealment. She is going to have to talk to one of the Masters about this when they get back to the base.

As Janos follows along, he tries a mental exercise he was once taught in an attempt to calm himself despite their danger.
Let's try that Medicine check to recover strain. GGG for me I guess.
