The crew was mingling with the other party-goers trying to find out what made Duke Piddock cut ties with Teemo. As they question some of the guests, they find out that two of them are smugglers working for Duke Dimmock, running guns to Teemo, from Geonosis. They don’t seem to know why Duke Piddock stopped dealing with Teemo, they are just here to pick up guns for Dimmock. They talk with a Troidarian named Anatta that is here to buy guns for Jaba the Hutt, Teemo’s cousin. He informs the party that he deals in information and that Jaba has a suspicion that Teemo has been spying on him. Anatta would pay a good price for information that would show Teemo spying on Jaba or any info that would show Teemo working against Jaba’s interests on Tattooine. Anatta says that Jaba would even make Teemo’s bounty on them go away, and most likely remove Teemo all together. During the party Tharg intimidated the Duke trying to get him to sell him his protocol droid, but the Duke quickly called his guards and stopped the encounter before it got out of hand. In response to this Griff decided to talk to the Duke about guns to get him alone so that the crew could find out why he stopped working with Teemo. The main reason was that he has a Kubaz spy working for him. Another reason is that Teemo had the Kubaz kill and eat his envoy. He also suspects Teemo of working with the Empire. After getting the information that they need, the crew buys some guns for themselves with Nyssa’s money and plan on giving her some of the heavy blasters that they got fighting Teemos tugs outside the mines on Ryloth.
At this point the crew heads to Duke Dimmock to see if they can convince him of helping them get into Teemo’s palace. They present the information that they gathered about why Piddock stopped dealing with Teemo, and after thinking it over Dimmock decides to help the party out by giving them passage on the smuggler ship the Lucky Guess. As the party makes their way to the Lucky Guess Dimmock set up a rigged engagement to make it look like the party was stealing weapons from him so he is not associated with the party. At this point they also encountered the Gand bounty hunter that was at Piddocks party. They make short work of all their antagonists and board the ship and head to Teemo’s palace.
