The Jewel of Yavin
Episode I: Odds and Opportunity
Knowing that the crew of the Iron Horse is in need of work, Zukesh is able to leverage the tip he acquired from business contacts. This leads them to Cloud City in what is supposed to be a smuggling job. Their liaison will be Aris Shend.
Upon arriving, they soon find their employer is Aris’s father, Arend Shen, and his smuggling job is in fact the heist of a lifetime. Their task will be to not only the Jewel of Yavin—currently owned by Marus Grayson—while it is on display for auction, but then to slice into the auction’s funding account to steal the winning bid as well. Doing so will require much preparation, cunning, and daring.
The crew investigates the bidders to acquire as much information possible that could be leveraged during the auction gala to drive up the bids.
They also investigate the Figg & Associates Art Museum to determine its floor plan, security features, personnel, and any potential weaknesses.
Slicing into the auction’s funding account will require great finesse, so the crew prepares and make all necessary arrangements for slicing into the account to divert the winning funds.
