Seaside Cabins

When it comes to visiting the famous Gold Beaches of Corellia, perhaps no better accomodation exists than a seaside cabin. One string of these belongs to an enterprising woman named Mina Trevill, who uses one as a drop-point for Rebel activity.

The Cabins
While there is some variance among them, the cabins generally boast similar features. There is a patio with a table for meals or lounging (A) outside the front door. The main room (B) has a kitchen area along with a sitting/entertainment area. There are three bedrooms (C), each outfitted with two beds and storage cabinets. Finally, two refreshers (D) contain all of the expected features.

In the cabin that is being used as a drop-point, a notable exception is a small statuette depicting former Corellian senator Garm Bel Iblis. It contains a small sensor unit, one that triggers similar devices set into the walls of the main room. If the statuette is carried from wall to wall, it activates a mechanism which opens a trapdoor in the floor of the middle bedroom. This is where Alliance operatives stash supplies and information for each other. This cabin is only rented to known Rebel agents--unless, of course, somebody makes a mistake.

Known as "the Procuress" among her associates, Mina Trevill specializes in acquiring information and materiel, and then distribruting it to Rebel operatives who need it. While this might seem less than exciting to some, she knows that many missions could not succeed without her support and guidance. For that reason, she has a no-nonsense personality most of the time, but those who grow close to her can learn of her sense of humor. Mina is a Human woman of middle age, with sparkling blue eyes and dark hair that has started to go grey.

Using the Rental Cabins in an Edge of the Empire Campaign
Many of the ways in which the cabins can be used in a campaign are detailed below.
  • If the PCs are simply looking for a place to lie low for a while, they should be comfortable here.
  • There's always the possibility that, during a visit, they accidentally discover the secret of the drop-point cabin.
  • Should the PCs be Rebel operatives, they might seek one of these locations to recover and resupply following a mission.
  • Should the Imperial authorities ever discover the drop-point, they would stage a raid.
