"We have them, we're Jedi," Galder says. "The pirates don't have them. They only have guns."

"A man is not defined by the weapon he uses," Gathol says. "It is the way he learned to use them.

"But yes, I think the boy is of the Jedi."

"Did you see more than I did?" Galder asks.

"Yes," Gathol says.

"What did you see?" Galder asks. "I want to know!"

Gathol shakes his head.

"Maybe the Force will reveal it to you too," he says. "Knowledge doesn't come free. It's meant for you or you earn it if it's not."

Gathol stands and stretches, then wraps his heavy furs tightly around himself. He then hands you yours.

"If you're up to it, we're meeting with the pirates again today," Gathol says. "I need information from them."

"I'm up for it," Galder says, though still sore. He does not want to disappoint his father and he wants to do something different. "What do you need from them? They don't seem like they know much."

"I want to know how their operations are going," Gathol says. "That is all you need know for now."

Gathol bundles himself up and heads out to prepare the snow skimmer. The cold-adapted speeder serves as your means of getting around Hoth.

Galder will bundle up too and get out there with his father. He brings his blaster and his lightsaber.

You note that Gathol too goes armed. His lightsaber hangs from his belt, and a thick black pistol is strapped under his arm, inside his heavy coat.

Once on the snow skimmer, Gathol barely waits for you to strap in before kicking it into the air and zipping off across the snow. The frosty air bites your cheeks and ruffles your clothes while you race over the tundra.

It takes an hour to reach the pirate base from your humble abode. It is set in the foothills of a mountain range (not the same peaks you were at early). You only know where it is from past experience; they hide it fairly well under the snow and ice.

Gathol pulls the speeder up to an ice wall, which slides back to reveal a blast door, which again opens to let through a small squad of pirates. They too are bundled up, but carrying larger guns.

"State your business, hermit," one barks.

"I'm here to talk," Gathol returns. "Norbo will want to see me."

The one that barked relays the message into a comlink.

Galder waits with his father on the speeder, examining the pirates and their big blasters nervously. He rubs at his own cheeks to warm them after the ride.

(Two years later)

Gathol throws a slight glare your way, noticing your fidgeting. He makes a motion with his hand to indicate that you cease. He himself always moves with deliberation, almost inhumanly.

"Alright, come in," the pirate says after a moment, waiving you and your father through the blast door. Gathol strides through, the pirates tailing him into the darkened corridor beyond.

Galder stays close to his father. He resists the urge to fidget more, trusting that his lightsaber and blaster won't magically disappear if he isn't touching them. He straightens his jacket and walks past the pirates.

The pirates lead you through the tunnel, carved directly from the ice with plasma drills and shoddily supported by metal beams. It doesn't look very stable to you. It descends steadily into a natural cavern that the pirates converted into a hangar. A huge fuel tanker vessel sits parked at one end, providing a means of refueling for the other starfighter and freighters landed here. Aside from a half-dozen newer, recently stolen Viper-class fighters, most appear to be old relics that the pirates keep in some semblance of working order. About twenty ships, all told.

The ice tunnel opens out onto the rickety catwalks that criss-cross the top of the cavern. Gathol clambers down a ladder and starts moving toward the second largest ship in the cave. You know it to be Norbo's, the pirate you've come to see.

Galder will follow, probably in slight awe of the ships.

The only time you see ships is when you visit the pirate base or see them flying about. So probably in awe, yes.

Getting down the ladders and walking past the ships, you notice they all took damage recently. The pirate mechanics are running around trying to patch things up or replace parts, or bossing around a handful of droids to help them. They seem frantic. Gathol looks about, but doesn't seem particularly surprised.

You come up to Norbo's starship and notice its guts spilled across the icy floor of the hangar. A pair of astromech droids are welding armor plating back into place. A green-furred humanoid stands watching their work, waiting for you. He wears an oil-smeared and smoke-dirtied flight jumpsuit. This is Norbo.

"Gathol, what do you want?" Norbo asks, curtly.

Your father smiles. "You look like you could use help with repairs."

"In return for what? I know how you work."

"Information."

Norbo shrugs and gestures at the ship. "Sure, whatever, but we make repairs first. I don't have a lot of time."

Gathol rolls up his sleeves and asks for a technical readout so he can get to work. He expects you to help him as well.

Galder will lend his limited technical know-how to his father in helping Norbo fix up his ship. He quietly inspects whatever damage the ship sustained and wonders what the pirates have been up to. Then sets to work trying to patch it up.

"Information?" Galder asks Gathol when they have a moment together. "About what?"

"Events beyond Hoth," Gathol says. "Quiet, son. Focus on your work."

A quick inspection tells you that this starship saw action, and recently. Carbon-scoring across the hull indicates shield-breaching direct hits from laser cannons. Norbo's astromech units already patched up some of the armor. Your father starts running diagnostic checks with a datapad to pinpoint damaged systems.

"Start talking, Norbo," Gathol says. "What caused the depletion in your shield generator? You took hits."

"Just fix it, man," Norbo responds, irritated.

"I asked for information," Gathol says. "What's going on? This raiders' fleet always look worn down but never close to cracking."

Norbo ignores Gathol's pressing and barks some orders to the astromechs. Your father does not take kindly to being ignored. He moves quickly and grabs Norbo by the collar and physically lifts him from the ground. You sense a surge of emotion from your father as he exerts his Presence on the pirate ace.

"Talk, dammit," Gathol says.

"Why so interested?" Norbo hisses.

Some pirates have taken notice and moved in to watch, idly toting blasters.

Galder nervously continues to work on Norbo's ship while Gathol interrogates the green-furred pirate, wondering what his father could want here. He eyes the pirates moving in. He is ready to fight but would prefer not to. He doesn't feel ready; his training isn't complete.

"Just talk, Norbo," Galder says. "We don't want trouble."

A tense moment passes with Gathol holding Norbo off the ground, the pirate's buddies edging in to see if a fight breaks out. Finally, Norbo growls from somewhere in his alien throat.

"Fine," Norbo says. "Though I don't get how it's any of your concern."

Gathol puts the pirate down slowly.

"We're hunted men," Norbo starts.

"What happened?" Gathol prompts.

"We got info from a contact in the Javin system that a shipment of military-grade shield generators had arrived at an orbital warehouse..."

Norbo details things from there. This pirate operation operates independently in a remote region of the Galaxy, where they find minimal trade aside from gas miners and must rely upon scavenging or stealing what they need- anything from foodstuffs and cold-resistant gear to starfighter fuel and weapons. Swiping shield generators would've been a jackpot, not only because they could've been resold for small fortunes in the Outer Rim but also because it would've secured their base, which relies on its secret location more than its actual defenses. All the better that they wouldn't have to go far to get them; the Javin system is only a short hyperspace jump away from the Anoat system, on the edge of the Galactic Republic.

To start things off, Norbo paid off the contact to get them clearance codes to dock at the orbital warehouse. This allowed them to send their heavier transports in without resistance, and a light fighter escort waited outside sensor range. But upon docking with the warehouse and sending their gunners in to secure the generators and bring them back, they found the place completely empty.

"Not even security in the place, not even droids," Norbo says. "Just..."

"Jedi," Gathol says, slowly. Norbo and the pirates listening in flinch.

"Two of them," Norbo says.
