The mercenaries put the party to work, with Sangisu, sending them on a mission to Nar Shaddaa to meet and escort a Corellian Merchant’s Guild convoy through recently contested space to Malastare. The party foils a procurement attempt by pirates during cargo off loading on Malastare and then returns to Nar Shaddaa with Kell and Erisi to meet with Jorda the Hutt, the Rangers’ current primary employer. During the trip back to Nar Shaddaa, the party also drops Sangisu off on his homeworld of Kintan. The party expects to deal with a criminal kingpin, but actually finds Jorda to be quite forthright and likable. They leave their meetings convinced that Jorda is trying to hold society on the fringe together in the face of the war drums being beaten by his rival, Flarrgh the Hutt.
