Competition: The Last Bastion

Finished
The Last Bastion

Through the combined efforts of Galerian agents and the people of Eldar we have located the main base the pirate scum are using to launch their raids. A springboard for their attacks on Eldar’s civilians, it has become priority number-one to root out their operation and reclaim the base as ours once and for all.

The location of the base itself is the abandoned Specter Cell bunker thirty miles outside of the main capital city. From what recon has gathered, most if not all the pirates' strength has been gathered here and many of the base's defences have been brought back online since we have been gone. Furthermore, the pirates who have taken the base have altered its security access codes, restricting our access until they have been reobtained.

Before we can take the base back, therefore, we need to capture one who has had access to the new security codes so that we might break in and deactivate the automated defences, avoiding a significant amount of unneeded bloodshed. Very likely, this information lies in the hands of a pirate lieutenant, and thankfully, the Specter Cell and other Galerian Agents have identified one such person: a murderous Trandoshan who goes by the name ‘Scalebeard’. Write a fiction wherein your primary, alternate, or NPC character tracks this bloodthirsty beast down to his seaside hold-out, and obtain the information that we need. Optionally, you can quest out in search of his hidden hoard of extra-solar treasures, and take them for Galeres… or for yourself.
