Into the Dust
Chased through the emerald wastes and into an arena

Bryn Orris and Vis Borricon found themselves in the company of a lovely women working as a dancer at a bar. In her room they waited patiently meditating on the events and opening themselves to the force. Leeda was the contact that Soonturk had given them and she supplied the two apprentices with keys to a vehicle outside the bar that she took from one of the patrons. Going out the back way and supplied with some rations, the two force users made their way to the vehicles as Bryn attempted to use the force to figure out which vehicle the key went to. Finally down to two choices he took a gamble and came up lucky, opening the vehicle and taking off down the street only to be shortly followed by one of the others.

A chase through the wastes as Vis and Bryn tried to fend of the dust farmers without harming them. As the chase nearly ended in calamity at the edge of a cliff, and the vehicles came to a stop, a new threat appeared and in large numbers. A hunting party of Gand easily outnumbering both the farmers and the two padawans took them as prisoners for trespassing on their land. Bryn tried to plead with the Gand but to no avail. They were taken along with the vehicles on a trek to an underground Gand settlement where the chief said that they would have to prove they were not dark force users by contest with Gondra. Forced into a cave and given their lightsabers back, across the room a gate opened and out strode Gondra, a Kintan Strider. The battle was hard fought with the creature recovering quickly from the wounds but between Vis and Bryn they were able to defeat it.

With the creature defeated, they had proven their worth to the Gand and were accepted into the tribe as warriors. Once the Gand believed that Vis and Bryn were trying to stop the dark force users, they supplied them with rations, equipment, their vehicle back, and a guide to the base of operations. Now on the outskirts and alone once more, Vis and Bryn must act quickly and be alert to free Master Tell and find out what these dark force cultists are doing out on Sheevan 7.

Missing Archaeologists

Upon the news of the disappearance of two archaeologist groups Master Fandomar calls on Rika (Aaron’s character), Kal-Do and Zeset(Adam’s). After explaining their disappearances he requests that they seek out the parties and report back with their findings. After receiving the coordinates the Jedi party sets out.

Upon arrival of the location they see bloodied and mangled bodies lying near a building and some speeder bikes in the jungles of Yavin 4. The building, although fairly new looking, is being taken back by the jungle as evidenced by the jungle growth around it. As they approach the first body to examine its status the door to the temple opens. Three Stintarils appear through the doorway. Kal-Do immediately knocks two of them prone, but after their recovery they rush him and almost knock Kal-Do unconscious. The Jedi succeed, but not without taking a good amount of damage.

Reporting back to the temple, a retrieval party is sent to recover the remains of the archaeologists. As they wait the Jedi enter the building in the jungle. Upon entering they discover an empty hallway and a door on each side. Kal-Do’s force sense says to enter the left door. Discovering that the door works perfectly still the door opens and they discover a large and angry looking Stintaril. Although much tougher than the previous Stintarils the Jedi overpower this one. Zeset force grips it and holds it in place until it is defeated. Discovering that there is nothing in this room of interest they proceed to the other doorway. The door opens to reveal a very old looking droid hovering in the room behind another Stintaril. Zeset uses the force to allow him another use of force grip and holds the Stintaril in place. The droid retaliates and deals a large amount of damage to Zeset, but Zeset is still able to hold his grip on the beast. The Jedi easily defeat the Stintaril, but the droid manages to knock Rika unconscious. Rika manages to survive the fatal blow with the use of the force.

After defeating the droid the Jedi inspect it and discover that there is dark force emanating from the droid. They pick it up and return to the temple with the archaeologist bodies and the damaged droid.

Master Fandomar confirms the dark force energy imbued within the droid. Unsure of its origins he sends the droid to be studied and researched by the Jedi historians. Zeset, Kal-Do and Rika then take a much needed rest.

A Simple Task Unsimplified
An easy trip turns out to be more than the padawans bargained for

" Melor-Keeg, come in. I repeat Melor-Keeg, come in"

Only static responded over the comlink as Bryn Orris looked out at the green dust storm blowing about the planet of Sheevan 7. He and Vis had only been on planet for a few hours and already Master Darven Tell had been abducted, they had been assaulted by a ruthless Wookie and now they barely survived being attacked by two cultists wielding lightsabers. They had been tracking Master Tell and were currently in the small town of Hara Kibar. Tell had been moved again and from intimidating the surviving cultist they knew Master Tell had been moved to Hara Habrak.

Bryn thought for a moment, he knew they needed to rest and heal but also must move fast to get to Master Tell in time. A Cerean bounty hunter by the name of Sune Turkhad helped them out and the next step was to go across the street and see what a dancer named Leeda had to stay. But for now, to buy a little time and hope that eventually they could get the jump on the captors Bryn called out over his comlink with a smooth lie, “Master Darven Tell, this is Bryn. We have found out that you are in Hara Kibar and will be there in about one day.”

Jedi Praxeum - Locations of Interest

JEDI PRAXEUM LOCATIONS OF INTEREST

The grounds outside the praxeum are untilized by both the Jedi trainers and trainees for physical training as well and for practicing force powers. Below are the common places you can find Jedi padawans training and playing.

SOUTH HILL
“Three miles up and three miles back.” South Hill has become notorious for the grueling runs and marches the masters make padawans condition themselves on. The hill leads up unto the jungle where more intensive exercises are preformed.

YORLS JUNGLE TRACK
The greater jungled area beyond South Hill is regularly used training padawans. This stretch of jungle is relatively safe as it is ringed by high craggy hill that keep much of the more dangrous denzines of Yavin 4 away.

BLACK OBELISK
A mysterious black obelisk lies a few hundred meters east of the Praxeum. It’s origins can only be guessed at it appears to be a simple standing stone of black material, clearly created by the previous inhabitants but for what purpose?
