With the jungle planet’s two moons in his sights, the Cathar maneuvered the dropship over the planet’s verdant and lush landscape. A rocky ridge line to the East came into focus after clearing the very thick cloud cover.
Your keen eyes take in the surrounding area as you scan it for any signs of trouble, keeping a careful eye on the radar, just in case something crops up on it. Suddenly your radar starts ‘bleeping’. Something was air bound at 3 o’clock. Having seen a river in the distance, you bank left and head towards the valley in the hopes to pass undetected from whatever enemy ships were combing the area to the East.
You expertly hover the dropship barely over the treeline, and notice a gorge with a massive river flowing rapidly beneath you. You duck the ship into the natural canyon, profiting of a straight pass to get a final look at the intel in front of you. There was a short and sudden burst of static.
Then came the frantic message over the airwaves: ”We’re under att…!” The way it was cut short sends a chill down your spine.

Dark Jedi Knight Saylos,
A routine recon mission has picked up some coded communications coming from Lubang Minor. Perhaps the Republic hasn’t learned their lesson the first time we ruined their plans for a listening post, or someone else has decided to construct a base of sorts on the jungle world. Your team was exploring an area West of the canyon, and you decided to run a parameter sweep before nightfall. So far, no glitches – that is, until a few minutes ago. The recon team has been ambushed and is in need of an immediate EVAC. Your team’s cover has been blown, so the job is even more simple now: get your drop ship out there, get them out, and rejoin the fleet.
Don’t worry about raining death on the enemy. You should worry about extracting your team, and we’ll head back and finish the job later. We’ll need that intel first. Attached is a map of their last known location (circled), as well as the area where you noticed ships coming from (marked by a star).

Lubang Minor is a jungle world where the flora and fauna are just as treacherous as its inhabitants. To complicate matters, we’ve got an unknown group who have decided to claim the planet. Expect heavy fire and the wildlife to cause you some trouble, so be cautious.
