Heir to the Empire
The Story So Far
Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa Solo, Han Solo, and Chewbacca travel to Nkllon seeking Lando Calrissian. However, before they can touch down, the mining planet is raided by the Imperials. During the ensuing space battle Luke's mind is touched by another Jedi. He intends to follow the beckon to Jomark hoping to find a master that can guide him in rebuilding the Jedi Order.
Leia and Chewbacca head to the wookiee homeworld of Kashyyyk, while Han and Lando venture to make contact with aloof smuggling lord Talon Karrde.
Grand Admiral Thrawn ambushes Luke on his heading but fails to capture him. Rather than pursue Luke further, he orders Captain Pallaeon to put a bounty on Skywalker's capture, as he refocuses the Imperial Fleet for their upcoming raid on Sluis Van.
As Thrawn had predicted, catastrophic failure befalls Luke's X-Wing half a lightyear after his escape. Both the hyperdrive and subspace radio are damaged beyond repair, leaving him and R2 (in his own words) where "we can't leave, we aren't likely to be found, and can't call for help".
After investigating the damage, Luke decides the only thing to do is to try to reconstruct the subspace radio. Delegating the tedious task to R2, he enters a Jedi hibernation.
Leia and Chewie arrive to Kashyyyk, and the tree-city of Rwookrrorro. They are greeted by Ralrracheen and Salporin, and Leia is surprised that she can communicate effectively with Ralrracheen.
Leia learns a little about wookiee culture, but on the way to her supposed safehouse, she spots one of the aliens responsible for her attempted kidnapping on Bimmisaari.

"His X-Wing, so sturdy in … combat, seemed now to be little more than a terrible fragile thread by which guys life was hanging"

Which would you choose to deconstruct: Repulsorlift drive or sensor jammer?
Luke poking around the X-Wing cockpit really sets off my claustrophobia

The way wookiees mash names, they don't seem to understand last names
"Now even the poor may eat [kroyies]." Even the wookiees are classist
Leia is a racist
Did they just punch down someone's door?
Leia’s difficulty with Shyriiwook is a good conflict/character flaw to give her.
Rwrookrrorro is the village you go to in KOTOR!
Kinda funny how Ralrracheen has a speech impediment that makes it easier for humans to understand him
I love how quickly all the Wookiees brought out their weapons to get the Noghri
