The Aeon Incident
Story So Far...
The crew operates a salvaged Tier 1, Renegade-class Transport the “Exarch Reliant”. While the ship has seen better days the crew manages to scrape enough credits together to keep it operational for hauling cargo and passengers seeking a certain discretion around the solar system and near space. It’s a solid frame with significant potential.
The crew have been operating for a few cycles now, sticking to safe space lanes and making the usual connections for freelance haulers. The pay is barely enough to keep the thrusters online but living as a freelance crew is ideal for beings that may have crossed the line a few times in their lives or are wanted in other less savory circles.
Each crew member found themselves involved with the Stewards (law enforcement) in some fashion. Due to the interest and intervention of an Android Agent, Cedona-17, they all found themselves with a clean record and operating a ramshackle ship in return for a few off-book hauls when the Stewards needed a ‘package’ picked up or delivered quietly.
A few months ago Cedona-17 transferred to a position on the planet of Nakondis out in the Vast. This event left the crew with less contact with the Stewards, less official sponsorship and fewer related paydays.
A job came across the links recently from AbadarCorp looking for a transport to haul basic supplies to Nakondis. Standard cargo, slightly better rates than usual due to the distance. A payday and an opportunity to visit with an old contact that may have more lucrative opportunities in an area way off the beaten path.
What could possibly go wrong?
I am running a published Adventure Path from Paizo Publishing. It consists of three books, each broken into three parts. Characters begin at 1st level and are intended to reach 7th level by the end of the third book.
The Adventure Path is Season 1 with a theme. Each book is a chapter in the season. Following that logic, each section of the books is an episode.
I do not reasonably believe a single session will encompass only one episode. Allowing for the pacing set by both the adventure as written and any side tracks by the crew we shall see.
