Sidequest Episode 3: The Call of Tatooine
Previously, on Sidequest Episode 2, most of the crew of the Drunken Mynock were relaxing back on their asteroid base in the Socorro sector. It had been a hectic few days, filled with adventure, danger and mroe danger, and they were enjoying their time off. Mathus had received a message from a contact on Tatooine, letting him know his old mentor, Honwoo, was being accosted by local thugs. Accompanied by Lowrick, the madcap wookie, and Jerry, the even crazier assassin droid, Mathus returns home for the first time since they blew up Teemo the Hutt and escaped with Trex's YT-1300 light freighter. After finding out that Thresh and his gang are living on a farmstead a few hours outside of town, the gang decides to ambush his men as they return home from a cantina late at night. The ambush is going off without a hitch, as Lowrick's well-placed grenade put one of their speeders out of commission and their blades do the rest of the work.

Sidequest Episode 2: The Call of Tatooine
Previously, on Sidequest Episode 1, our heroes were taking a much-deserved break on their asteroid station in the Socorro sector when they received a holo message from Tatooine. Mathus's old mentor Honwoo was being shaken down by local thugs and criminals who had popped up in the vacuum of Teemo's death. Feeling doubly responsible, Mathus, Lowrick and Jerry flew the Drunken Mynock to Mos Shuuta, a small town a few hours drive from Mos Eisley. There, they found Honwoo hurt but alive, victim of a vicious beating delivered by Thresh, a local gang leader who claimed ties to Jabba. Not wanting to upset Jabba if he was indeed on the Hutt's payroll, our heroes loudly asked around in the local cantina and found a Twi'Lek who was eager to throw Thresh to the wolves. After discovering his gang's whereabouts, the crew went back to Honwoo's in order to upgrade their equipment for the fight ahead. Mathus, working closely with Honwoo, flawlessly improved Lowrick's Vibro-Axe, Jerry's Vibro-Rapier and Mathus's shock gloves. Ready for whatever is to come, the group watches the double suns set over Tatooine and think of revenge.

Having finalized their agreement with the leader of a criminal organization on Socorro, the group decided to shore up their cash reserves by answering a call from Anata, Jabba’s contact and spy on Tattooine. Anata had a lead on the credits that some of Teemo’s old henchmen had stolen when the group had blown up his palace, and everyone decided to kill two birds with one stone by pleasing Jabba and taking a cut of the credits. With rumours that Teemo’s Kubaz spy, Thweek, had stolen the credits, they tracked him down to his family home on Naboo. The group split up, with the medical droid Vex, angry wookie Lowhhrick and smuggler Pash heading after Thweek, while their mechanic, Mathus, assassin droid Jerry and scout Sasha went to the marketplace for supplies.
