Planejammer: The Seven Stars

Chapter 13 Part 3 Paradigm Shift-Gamma World

While Kaolin fills the breach with a Divine Storm, Finn puts on the Ring of the Gunslinger and snatches a fallen grimlock’s blaster rifle.
Looking through the whirling blades of the Divine Storm Finn observes a figure in the back of the Boreworm, not just an Illithid, but a Ulitharid (an Illithid noble). Lola casts flare in it’s face, momentarily blinding it.
After a brief and bloody battle the Ulitharid Dominates those still standing (Kaolin, Finn, Tavist and Foehammer. Taj awakes just as the Ulitharid has them kneel to make a meal of them. She casts Telepathic Assault, jarring its concentration enough for Finn and Tavist to break free. Tavist draws his starwheel and blows its head off.
Using the Staff of the Technomage Taj refuels the ship and Dave takes off fast.
Tavist casts a Major Image of a stone wall in front of one of the pursuing Nautiloids, then Drake casts a real Wall of Stone just beyond it. The Nautiloid slams into the stone wall and ceases pursuit.
As an Illithid dreadnaught appears, rapidly closing with them, the sky fills with arcs of purplish energy. Just like the past two times they fade out and reappear in unfamiliar space.
As they appear the ship goes out of control tumbling towards a planet below. All the spellcasters fell their magic weaken (Arcane max level of 3, Divine max level of 5). Kaolin uses the rapidly draining energy of the Crown of Stars to ease the crash into a rough landing amongst the reddish grasslands below.
They wake Dave the pilot and begin the process of refueling the ship and rebooting the AI using Taj’s staff. Dave says it will take awhile for the arcane battery to charge up enough to use.
Ship’s sensors detect a group of 40 humanoids approaching. Taj scans them and says that more than half are psionic, although of a raw, primal, and untrained type she has never seen before. As they get closer it becomes obvious that any humans or near humans are chained and acting as slaves.
Drake and Tavist use magic to disguise themselves, drake as a catfolk and Tavist to look more reptilian. They Dimension Door out with Kaolin and Taj.
They are escorted through the crowd of mutants to meet Napoleon 3, Emperor of Bonparr. While talking drake paints his portrait (DC 30). They group are invited to dine that evening.
During the meal Napoleon begins trying to negotiate renting or trading for use of the “skyship,” in order to wipe out an “infestation,” in the ruined city nearby.
Boudreaux, a mutant crawfish and shaman to the Emperor says that their coming was foretold, that they would cleanse the infestation of the old See-Teel Starport……
