Rokur Gepta manages to lure Lando Calrissian into Oseon space with an anonymous message offering great gambling wins. Gambling on the asteroid Oseon 6845 (and 2,300 credits ahead), Lando Calrissian finds himself a walking target. However, an invitation to a sabacc tournament is an inescapable lure for Calrissian. And if he sticks around long enough, he can see the Oseon sun flare into the legendary Flamewind. He does okay, until the Millennium Falcon is sabotaged and he is attacked by (and forced to kill) an Oseon cop. He is not charged for killing the cop, but sentenced to death for carrying a gun. As always, he is offered a deal - to free himself, he must get two cops to Oseon 5792 to entrap and arrest a drug-using trillionnaire named Bohhuah Mutdah, thus allowing his rivals a chance at his fortune. And survive the lethal radiation of the Flamewind in the process. And survive Rokur Gepta's numerous attempts to kill him. Fighting his way to Mutdah's home, Calrissian is stunned when one of the cops kills the other, and then Mutdah (who talks to the cop like he is an employee) shoots him. And then, suddenly, Mutdah's morphs into his true form - that of Rokur Gepta, who is set all of this up (and killed Mutdah to take his place) just to kill Lando. The gambler barely survives Gepta's mental torture, stabs him in the eye, and makes off with twenty million of Mutdah's fortune. On the way out, Lando and Vuffi rescue Klyn Shanga, a Renatasian with a grudge against Vuffi.

This story occurs approximately 5 to 4 years before the Battle of Yavin.
