Star Wars: A True Epic Adventure

Mandalore

Mandalore

The group despondently kicked around Duros for a couple of weeks, whining that they weren’t crazy, they really did take over a Rakata ship and flew it back. No one believed them and Kir still hadn’t fixed his data pad with the coordinates for the unknown planet. After a while, they decided that they needed to do something and looked up some stuff on a job board. The one that grabbed their attention was an exploration led by a Rakata scholar to a planet that he thinks is where the other original settlers of Coruscant went. The method of travel involves going to a Rakata space station, getting it operational, and using its version of a hyperspace gun to launch the ship across the galaxy. Using the Rakata hyperspace gun works well, and as the ship is arriving at its destination, they see a damaged ship in orbit around the planet. They board it and manage to boot up the engines and computer systems. As the ship thawed, the group noticed that it was moving slowly. Trying to figure out where the ship was trying to go and doing a quick search of some rooms on the way out, the group stumbled across the armory, empty of everything except a couple of suits of archaic armor. The group brought those back to their ship and prepared to leave, opening the hanger doors to discover the ship was in the middle of doing an uncontrolled entry of the atmosphere. Vlad managed to pilot their ship out of the hanger without getting smashed up and followed the ship down, setting down a few miles away. Kir stayed with the ship and looked at some of the stuff the group had recovered from the (now crashed) ship. The rest of the group grabbed the speeder bikes and headed to the crash site to check it out. While Tasook and Vlad circled the crashed ship doing readings, Cee Zee stayed with the professor. As the professor worked, Cee Zee started to hear something moving around. Not being militant minded, he stood around like a nice target, although the professor took the first arrow through the back. Cee Zee dragged the professor to relative safety behind on of the speeder bikes and tried to figure who was shooting. A figure ran out of the darkness with a sword, wearing archaic armor similar to the suit that the group found in the ship in orbit and Tasook is currently wearing. A strange confused flurry of combat commenced with the professor and Cee Zee shooting at the figure, who spent much of his time disarming Cee Zee. Once Tasook and Vlad joined the battle, (both tripping while getting off their speeders) and things ended abruptly as the stranger knelt before Tasook and offered up his sword. Turned out, this was the race that the professor was looking for, and the the stranger wanted Tasook to challenge for the leadership of his old clan. After a long battle, Tasook proved victorious, and there was much rejoicing. The day after the party, the group headed for what they gathered was an old Rakata tomb several hours away. Once they got there, the door opened by a touch from Vlad, just like the structures on the first jungle planet they were on. Inside, there was a blackness that defeated even Tasook’s darkvision and Cee Zee’s hearing. Vlad led the way and stopped right before falling into a pit. After some deliberation, Vlad climbed down a rope and after telling the group it was safe, wandered off into the darkness. Shortly thereafter, the lights came on the the group caught up with Vlad, who was standing in front of a sarcophagus that had the lid removed. The professor was overjoyed with the findings, although Cee Zee and Vlad in particular seemed somewhere troubled and moved out to the forest as soon as they could.

Cee Zees Folly

The Rakate Exile guards are kneeling down in front ofVlad Mirros after he cut off the dark robed figures head. One of them stands up to him and says “My Lord, let me take you and your entourage to your quarters. You can get some rest and then all will be explained.” With this, she leads the group away to a living section of the ship and left them in their quarters for the night.

Vlad Mirros wakes up in his room and feels drawn to go back to the Throne Room, where he fought the Cloaked Figure. When he arrives there, the room is darker then before and the ship seems to be orbiting a storm racked planet. Cloaked Figure says “Follow my path and I will lead you to the riches and power your heart desires….” He then held his hand out to Vlad. At this poing Vlad once again woke up in bed.

Vlad Mirros and Cee Zee get together and decide to explore the ship and discover the following: Armory, medical bay, training facility, throne room, bridge, battery section and engine room. While on the bridge, Vlad attempts to take the ship out of hyperspace but the Exile Guards stop him stating that would probably be a very bad idea. After leaving the bridge, they decide to head down and talk to the Head Mistress of the Exile Guards and find out what is going on.
This is what they discover:
1. The Cloaked figure was the Dark Lord, exiled from the Rakata (for reasons they failed to ask)
2. Vlad Mirros defeated him in combat, proving that he is more powerful and has taken his place as the Dark Lord.
3. He will receive the Dark Lord title only once he has gone through the coronation on the Throne World of Tatooine. The Coronation requires him to fast for 3 days and then go through the Purification Process.

This naturally freaked out Vlad Mirros who instantly starts plotting his escape…

Meanwhile……
Kir Vantai wakes up and decides to head down to the battery area of the ship because he was very intrigued in how that system worked. He walked in to hear a banging and yelling from inside one of the battery compartments. Opens it to find a very angry looking Trandoshan who seems to have ripped off the straps holding him down and was in the process of bashing open the compartment. Kir helps him out, unplugs him from the machine and hands him a slug thrower rifle (because what else would you do with an angry Trandoshan but arm him?). They then head up in the elevator and on the living quarters section the door opens revealing the rest of the group with two Exile guards. After a quick but violent scuffle between Tasook and the guards, everybody is calmed down and they head up to the bridge (yes the pissed off trandoshan is still in his underwear.

Kir Vantai sits at the nav computer area for a few hours and realizes that they are very close to the end of their trip. He starts talking to Vlad Mirros in Duros and they hatch up a plan to take out the exile guards and return home.

This starts with them taking out the two guards with them while in the Throne room and culminates with a battle in the training facility that nearly ends with Kir Vantai dead.

Upon return to the bridge, they walk in right as the ship is exiting hyperspace and the see the lush oceans and green grasslands of Tatooine, the Dark Lord of the Exiles Throne World. Instantly they are being hailed in Rakata, and three ships are launched to guide them in to land. However, the group panics, flips the ship around and attempts to escape the system. Vlad Mirros is piloting the ship while Kir Vantai attempts to plot some sort of hyperspace course using the nav computer, they took a few punishing hits but then manage to escape away into hyperspace. However, the nav computer starts sparking and then shuts down.
Vlad Mirros and Tasook head down to the battery compartment and only to find it smoking very badly and all but two of the batteries have either impoded or exploded.
Kir Vantai takes the ship out of hyperspace, opens up the nav computer anf finds that it is on fire in there, gets the fire out and fixes the nav computer enough for it to power back up. The bad news is that it looks like most of the memory has been deleted so there is a big chunk between where they started and where they are going that is just a big empty blob. he thinks that maybe he can get a reading from the location of the starts and figure out their direction of travel. While he is doing that, Cee Zee decides that it would be best if they just did a blind jump and starts the hyperdrive up again….. This has the side effect of frying most of the controls in the pilot section, making it so that they cannot exit hyperspace.
After a very harrowing 8 hours the group all working together manages to disconect the jump drive from the engine, forcing the ship into regular space.. Seconds after doing that the ship collides with an unknown object and loses all gravity control. They rush to the bridge, Cee Zee making it there first and strapping himself into the pilot seat and they find themselves with a very cracked front screen, and hurtling down through the atmosphere of a planet.
Cee Zee using more luck then real skill manages to slow the ship down, dodge a very important looking sky scrapper, aims the ship toward a lake but crashes pretty hard into the water. This causes the ship to roll, skip and break apart on the surface then start sinking when the water busts through the front windshield. The group then gets sucked into the ship with the water (some deeper then others) before managing to swim out and get picked up by a search and rescue craft.

They tell their story to the Dr’s who then pass them off to shrinks, but the group has no proof of what happened because somewhere all their Rakata gear has disapeared……

In The Beginning

Three fairly random individuals (Vlad, Kir, and Cee Zee) met up at a bar and developed a companionship as only the downtrodden with little hope are wont to do. After doing a few little odds and ends jobs, they decided to pool their skills and got hired to babysit a freighter headed to Duros by sublight. As they travelled, they were buzzed by a small vessel and immediately thought to start checking the hatches on their ship, a process that took days, but was completed with no sign of anyone. The group was feeling pretty safe when there was a shudder and when the group looked, there was a ship attached to theirs and looked like it was drilling through the hull. As the group tried to figure out how they were going to deal with the invader, several more ships attached themselves and drilled into the hull at various locations. The group decided to vacate via the escape pod, and as they were doing it, the invaders cut into the bridge with energy swords and demanded that the group hand over the “sensitive one”. The escape pod launched them onto an overgrown planet and the group vacated immediately, the enemy surrounding the area looking for them. The group followed a stream that turned into a river and ended in a massive waterfall cascading into a lake. In the distance there were some stone spires visible. The group found a staircase down, then headed to the pyramid shaped spires. On the way, they found some old skeletons of Rakata and looted them, finding some energy guns and energy swords, all lacking a charge. Once at the structures, the group went inside and climbed to the top. They found a casket-like box and the top, and when they opened it, they found a human shaped divot in a crystal like bed. As they were deciding who was going to climb in, Cee Zee jumped in, immediately going rigid in pain. Vlad and Kir dragged him out and when they saw a ship coming towards them, dragged him down inside the spire. When they got inside, the group encountered two Rakata and defeated them, heading out through the pyramid. Seeing the ship there on the ground, they decided to board it and try to take it over. As soon as they got on, it took off, taking them somewhere else. After fumbling around, Vlad found himself seperated from the group and in a throne room, facing an obviously superior black robed figure with an energy sword. After the rest of the group managed to get to him and join the fight (Cee Zee stabbing Kir in the leg with the energy sword), Vlad beheaded the robed figure and the Rakata guards all knelt down, leaving the group to scratch their heads in puzzlement.
