Giddy Fortune's Furious Fickle Wheel

Giddy Fortune's furious fickle wheel,
That goddess blind,
That stands upon the rolling restless stone.
--William Shakespeare, Henry V


Captain Jack Sparrow's eyes fluttered open. He attempted to sit up, but found he could not. Furrowing his brow, he tried once more, then looked to his right and left. He was, it seemed, tied spreadeagle to a table, his wrists and ankles securely fastened. Lifting his head to look down at said ankles, the pirate noticed that in addition to this rather uncomforable position, all his clothes were gone, and only a thin towel covered his loins.

"Well this is...embarrassing," he said aloud to no one in particular. "I do hope this is merely the after-effects of a very good time, and not something entirely more sinister."

A whirring sound from above Jack's head caused him to try to crane his neck. "Waiter," said Jack, "I'll have one of whatever it is your blending, please, and be so good as to loosen the rather intricate knotwork, there's a good fellow."

The figure that had been behind Jack now stepped around him to stand alongside the wooden table. Light winked off of it's metal frame, and Jack saw the figure revealed as a modified 21-B medical droid.

"How much blood is in your body, Mister Sparrow?" intoned the droid darkly.

"Captain," corrected Jack, "not Mister. And as to how much blood, just enough, thank you for asking." The pirate grew a bit concerned. "May I enquire as to the nature of the question?"

In response, the droid held up it right hand, which revealed that the whirring had come from a spinning saw blade, which now descended towards the pirate's chest.

(OOC: Let's take our time, shall we? ;) )

Haven and Jack had been tracking a peculiar droid that had a knack for collecting some of the more valuable trinkets in the galaxy, this droid was a modified medical droid that was very gifted with surgical standards yet it had gone rogue from a medical company some time ago and had been running amuck carving into peoples skin, and even going to the extreme to implant cybernetics in the more unworthy of recipients, somehow this drone thought it would be funny to replace a gammorrean lung with the lung from an aquilish, for days they tracked the droid after taking on the assignment to capture him alive or in pieces.


The mission would have been simple if for not the poor choice of one Captain @[member="Jack Sparrow"] to be captured only days into it thinking that it would allow for an easier capture of the droid, yet only days into it the captain, a little misguided; had misjudged the droid and had gotten himself tied to a medical table and is about to be experimented on by this droid and his counterparts, the droid had not only gone rogue but also decided to try his hand at piracy, one thing he should never have gotten himself into since it attracted the attention of Jack Sparrow and his meager crew aboard the Black Pearl, a pirate vessel unmatched by any others.

During the tracking of the Dusty Vortex, the manned vessel of the droid pirate king, as he would like to call himself... the pearl had encountered many opposite ends of bargains and blackmail and even acquired the unusual of ship hands, a few gammorreans, some nasty ugnauts and a few wookiee's with the usual humans, sullustans and falleen. Yet the mission had been altered and the plans had changed, the second hand of the Pirate Lord has now to rescue her captain from the clutches of the villainous droid and to also work to capture him before he makes good on his word three weeks prior, in his own baritone "I'll amputate yer arm, Mister Sparrow!" funny since now haven will amputate his servo-motors and head.

Mister Snib, take us in and make sure the guns are full set and ready... walking away Haven Pryde sets her sights on the wanna-be pirates pleasure yacht and then hears a squeel and a blurted out question Why, master pryde? it was such an idiotic question but one she would answer, even though with sarcasm and delight We're going after the captain, now take us in like I had requested. the ship was made to withstand heat and to dish out more punishment, but one thing Haven was made for was rescuing captains and killing idiots, good thing the droid is artificial, since he'll continue to live even though in scraps of metal.

Pyoo!
A red blaster bolt connects with the whirring power saw and sends it flying out of the droid's hand with enough force to virtually take it along with it.
Pyoo!
Another one, immediately after the first one, this time hitting the droid in the dome and reducing it to a sparking, sizzling stub atop it's body as it falls to the ground. Standing in a doorway behind the pirate, the masked man, Andreas reholsters his DC-17 hand blaster and walks up to the restricted man, brandishing one of his vibro-daggers

The pearl had blasted a hole in the other ship the size of an asteroid yet somehow it was still holding, this would be the surfacing point and haven ran full sprint inside her space suit and dove for the hole, the other ship was a capital so therefor it was made to handle large gaping hole and Haven had less than a minute to go through it before the shields kicked back in, hurtling herself into the hull she and a few crew mates, the newer ones landed on the bottom level and then the shields reactivated and they shimmied from their suits. the crew she had with her were all female, two humans, one falleen, and one zeltron that she had brought with her into the pearl.... all older accomplices.

That's when trouble revealed itself, shimmying out of the suit a group of mark 2 clankers came into sight and haven drew her weapons, two lightsabers and started to work to deflect the bolts.. it was such a nasty sight seeing clanker fall into a heap of smoldering metal.

Haven then looked around and began to walk, attaching her ear piece she radioed to the captain @[member="Jack Sparrow"] Cap'n, this is Ice Queen...be prepared for rescue.. Oh and tell the droid we'll be collecting our bounty when I arrive she said not knowing the current situation unfolding where the captain is.

Oh, a ship full of droids bent on killing dear Captain Sparrow, HK could not resist, it was too much of a lure.
The familiar, at least familiar to Captain Sparrow, electronic monotone would sound out through the comm-links
"Captain Sparrow, it has been too long. This is the Iron Knight, I have come for you, Sparrow, prepare to pay for your crimes, pirate. By the way, Kirill says 'Hello", I shot him in the head."
While HK played out this joke on poor Sparrow, he also failed to mention that Kirill survived it.

Should they be able to track from where the communication came from, they would be surprised to find out that it came from inside the ship. For HK, infiltrating a ship full of droids was rather easy.

Haven was making her way to the elevator shaft when a squadron of droids came upon them, her own group threw stun grenades into the squadron and some of them had the intelligence to scramble around corners and out of range while others, a small group had the gall to stay put while staring at them grenades like a bunch of idiots when the loud BOOM! sounded and they froze and fell over dead, the droids toppled and then clanked to the ground fried from the electrical discharge of the stun grenades, haven then drew her second saber and ignited it with a cleansing snap hiss, the small group of femme fatales drew their own infantry weapons, one had an electro-whip and ignited the electric charges in it readying herself to stun and damage droid with it.

Haven then walked toward the corner of the wall and used a force throw on the droids hiding behind it and sent them into the wall, this only destroyed some of them while others; the more well armored ones got back up forcing the groups whip lord to quickly twirl around the corner and snap her whip into the droids that remained, one snap hit them all and stunned them, two snaps fried their circuits... it was such an awesome thing, the whip-lord seriously was the most dangerous thing to these artificial people.

Haven then lead her strike-insertion team to the elevators and got inside, haven was making sure she was the one in front to deflect the blaster bolts that would soon flank their positions, upon the elevator getting to their floor she leapt out of the elevator and came down slicing up a small group of confused droids and then sending another force throw into another group forcing them into a wall, luckily these ones were not armored much but it was time they started to get to @[member="Jack Sparrow"] and to deal with the droids up there.

Andreas studied the man as he spoke. It was deemed necessary by himself to take in all he could of anybody he wound up meeting - no matter who - should they turn out to be an enemy. It was one of the habits he conjured up while living on a planet full of nothing but warfare, even over the smallest of things. He listened to the man's voice, picking up on his personality and consequently his behavior, his presumed combat methods and tactics; all of this from the way thecaptain spoke.
This whole time, Andreas was cutting through the man's restraints, avoiding use of the vibration generator to in turn avoid accidentally severing the man's hand along with the bonds. Just as he had finished freeing the first hand, he heard a warning and heeding it, Wintergreen pivots around and thrusts out his free hand to force push whatever the threat happens to be away forthwith
 
"Much obliged, mate," smiled Jack, sitting up quickly and rubbing his wrists. Of course, this is when the towel fell off of him, leaving him completely nude in front of his rescuer. "Well now," murmured Jack, but before he had a chance to recover his cover, two more droids, larger than the previous, ducked and entered the room. Both had right arms that had been converted into what looked like cannons.

"Hands up!" they boomed metalically.

The pirate captain obliged quickly, then dropped both hands to cover his naked crotch, then raised them once more, not wanting to be killed.

"Hands up," Jack said to Andreas. "No holes in the ship, if you please. She's something of a prize. And not to worry, help is probably on the way." To the droids, he asked, "Why are you here? Where's me crew? And most importantly, why am I naked?"

"No talking!" boomed one of the droids while the other pointed its cannon at Andreas, waiting for the Sith apprentice to comply.

Haven and her crew quickly made their way to the captains chambers where they were holding @[member="Jack Sparrow"] and made sure the ship was not dented or scratched, as they droids were now falling apart to her peoples specialized weaponry that would not bang holes in the ship she quickly got to the chambers and found it locked on the inside, looking to the human juggernaut she smirked menacingly Unlock this for me will ya lovely? she asked and watched as the woman walked over and began to get the ship unlocked for the crew.

Well, at least Jack could not be accused of not having any friends.
"No talking!"
The hostile droids boomed out, but before they could even do any more hostilities, or the Sith apprentice could do something foolish, a crackle of electricity was heard.
Before they could react, the droids had two charged up electrogloves planted to the back of their heads, hopefully, that would be enough to quickly knock them out and fry them.

Behind the droids, stood armored and armed figure of another large droid, his mask opened up, revealing The Iron Knight HK.
He would stare at Jack, whether or not he was able to knock out the guards, speaking up.
"Hello, Jack. Did you missed me?"

The door was quickly and successfully hacked and the security codes were quickly bypassed, the chambers were large and so it would take a lot of effort to secure them but as the door opened Haven and her femme fatale walked inside and rounded a corner quickly, looking into the main serving chambers and seeing @[member="Jack Sparrow"] standing there with droids surrounding him she smirked and found it to be a weird site since he was completely nude and then she walked up quietly and took a droid and snapped it's neck, her crew tossed in a few stun grenades and then backed out quietly.


Their stealth tactics worked perfectly and before anyone of the droids knew it the grenades popped with a screaming echo BOOM! BOOOM! BOOM! and stunned several droids that dropped to the ground with their bodies fried completely, drawing their weapons the whip-lord sliced through the air and struck a few droids with only a couple cracks of both her electro-whips forcing three more droids to short circuit and then she looked at them You do realize who's ship yer on don't you? her voice echoing into the chambers while she is hiding in the shadows.

He surely could have taken on the opposition by himself, but that didn't seem necessary now. The bunch of droids fell down piece by piece, chunk by chunk as all of Jack's friend's arrived and "saved the day". One in particular seemed rather skilled with stealth, using that to take out most of the droids, but Andreas would rather she put an end to her charade and show herself. Turning to where he could sense the girl's presence, he reached out his hand and utilized the Force to pull her out of her hiding spot.
"Do you know her?"
He said, the question was directed at the naked man, though he wasn't looking at him

haven felt the force pull and planted herself in the force to make her stay put, the force pull was powerful yet she knew just how to not be pulled by such a deliberate action, as she stood there she conjured a ball of spark and flung it at another droid and then used a force throw and some more were thrown into a wall, she smirked and then walked into sight and found the male that tried to pull her there with a mask over his face.

She looked around to find the droids now targeting her and her whip-load taking three more out, with another grenade tossed in and with a BOOM stunned and fried another small group, there was now six droids including @[member="HK-36"] standing tall, haven then looked at @[member="Jack Sparrow"] and smirked playfully at her captain I see you've been busy without me Jack, now would you mind putting something on? her tone was sarcastic and she looked at the droids waiting for her time to strike, either these droids were idiots or they were green since they had yet to open fire.

If HK could roll his eyes he would, so much unnecessary fighting, they could have scored quite the sum on salvaging those droids, but the pirate women team ruined that.
HK picked up a cloak off of the ground, reaching to another droid and frying its circuits with another shock of electroglove as it collapsed to the ground.
He threw the cloak at Jack, covering his naked body with it
"Ready to get out of here, Jack? I jammed the droids' signals, but I presume that with the mess your associates caused, reinforcements could be coming soon. I do not think the Doctor worked alone."
He motioned in the direction they have just cut out through
"The way out of here should be clear."
Haven's attempts at stealth did not really worked on HK, he had one of the most advanced sensors and trackers around, he could see through anything short of White Current.

Andreas gave a slight irritated groan when the woman resisted him. The effort was short lived and he stopped after two seconds of trying. There were still droids in the room and if the woman wanted to stay there, there just wasn't much sense in wasting extended periods of time opposing her. Especially since she decided to show herself shortly after. The HUD system in his helmet notified him of the properties of her weapons and clothing, providing an x-ray for any hidden devices (and for that reason only) and giving extensive information on all of them along with her heart rate and electroencephalographical information.
Interesting
He turned his attention to the remainig five hostile droids and traded his video-dagger for a narrow, rectangular prism. The top of it briefly crackled with black electricity as the pitch-black blade of it jutted out of it with a pitch higher and softer than a lightsaber, identifying it as a darksaber. The onyx blade became a blur as Andreas skillfully sliced each and every one of the remaining droids into sizzling sections, destroying them. The moment he deactivated the darksaber and put it back on his belt, the droids fell in a cluster of scraps.

"I'd prefer it if you took something off, love," smiled Jack, wrapping himself in the cloak his droid friend and sometime competitor tossed to him. "No? Ah well, maybe later." He threw the lady pirate a wink and began looking for his clothing, gear, and especially his signature hat.

"I agree with HK," he said, spotting everything piled up neatly in a corner. "We should vacate this ship in haste. And then blow it up." He kicked a severed droid head across the room. "'Capture the insane medical droid,' they said. 'No harm, Jack,' they said. Well they didn't end up naked on a table with a big...whirling..." he made great waving motions with his hands, wiggling his fingers and saying "Bzzzzzz."

Scooping up his clothing, belt, sword and blaster, but pausing to put the tricorn hat on his head, Jack checked the cloak around his midsection and headed toward the door. "Everyone who has a ship, to it. We'll want to be prepared when Dead Doctor Pirate Droid here's compatriot's arrive. And next time," he pointed at Andreas, "you get knocked out and naked, because I'm not doing that again. No offense."

Exiting quickly, Jack headed for the Black Pearl.

HK looked to Jack, tilting his head
"A buzzsaw? They have saws at your ship, do they not? They are rather necessary for repairs and such."
When Jack moved to make his exit, HK followed in behind him
"How have you been, by the way? You know Verz is a Mandalore now, I have my own planet to govern, you are still stuck on that ship of yours."
The droid slightly rubbed it in into Jack's face, reminding him that the rest of their old adventuring group have gotten to far places
"I am not saying you are a bum, Jack.. But you are kind of a bum!"
He called out after Jack

Haven used a force pull to pull the droid head to her, it had a blueprint that would help the obtain their bounty which was a nice sized 150,000 credits and that would be enough to make any pirate drool, as they headed back to the ships haven's femme fatale alerted her to the presence of more droid... this time it was droid starfighters attacking her own ship Alright boys it's time to pick up the pace, droids to destroy..lot's of 'em she said to the ones in front of her and her rack team of females.
