Tales of the Jedi

Episode 18 - Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?
Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?

After a debriefing with the Jedi Council, Rune and Vaen encounter Channa Quo and her padawan Chupa-Pau speaking with Lissa Eckhardt and Endon Locke in the halls of the Jedi Temple. Locke is a private detective and explains that Lissa hired him to find her brother, Thoma, who went missing after being released from prison. The group flies back on the ship which Locke had booked to get to Coruscant – The Crimson Hawk, whose crew consists of the long red haired pilot Captain Jennif Wells, Navigator Ruce Steiner, engineer Nold “Nolie” Laine, and gunner/medic Che-Li Win. Arriving on the non-Republic world of Shulimik, the ship sets down in the Fitzhugh Starport in Stanyard, the capital city of the nation of Corland. The city is situated atop a plateau surrounded by dense orange clouds that fill the lowlands. The pollution is so bad here that many wear face masks.
Rune flirts with a clerk at the Office of the Department of Correctional Facilities (DoCF) and learns that Thoma Eckhardt’s records are restricted, prompting an after-hours break in where it is learned that Arran Fylde, the Director of the DoCF worked with prison governor Hendrik King and warden Owain Lewis to illegally supply inmates to the SAI Stellar Corporation for biogenetic experiments in return for generous payments. Normally only targeting prisoners without a next of kin, due to a clerical error Thoma’s sister Lissa was not listed on his file. Meanwhile, SAI begins getting nervous regarding all the questions being asked about Thoma and begins the cover-up. Lissa is nearly killed when she is run down by a mysterious black speeder and a squad of SAI agents led by Elite Agent Sone show up to silence the group. Tarrant is badly injured by a sniper and Vaen is gassed but many of the agents are killed, including Sone, and the rest driven off.

Episode 17 - Ghost of the Past
Ghost of the Past

Preparations are being made for the Funeral Procession of Jedi Master/ Supreme Chancellor of the Republic Sidrona Diath. Taking part is a male Trandoshan Knight Druss Shol with a Kushiban (0.5 meter rabbit-like alien) Padawan Jospi Shysa and a female Togruta Knight Channa Quo with female Ortolan (fat blue long snout) Padawan Odala Chupa-Pau. Channa and Rune notice Knight Shol using The Force on the Elite Coruscant Police in the lead car — a disgusting abuse of the Living Force — perhaps too many Knights doing the same has angered The Force? Tarrant is upset that the Princess choose another guardian to sit beside her on the flotilla. As one of the police officers boards the float, he points at Vox and makes a mock “pistol” with his fingers. During the procession, the Jedi sense a disturbance in the Force as Shol kills the Lippe Orreto, Mayor of District B13. This is the hardest battle yet, against elite mind-controlled opponents (both police and Jedi) who the team does not want to hurt, firing at range across on floating platforms. As the fight goes badly, nearby Masters arrive to deal with the situation before more tragedy strikes. Investigating Shol’s quarters, they find multiple charcoal sketches on the walls of the same location. Vox recognizes a landmark in Undercity — The Outlander Club. Based on the angle, Kerr is able to calculate based on the angle that the club could only be seen from a certain place. Rune instructs the Jedi to leave their lightsabers behind in case one of them is controlled. Once there, a Force Ghost appears before them — Lord Satal Keto! Revealing that he is the force behind the killings and that Aleema had used Sith magic to raise him only to be killed again by Qel-Droma. He grants them a vision of the Princess — dying; he’s doing nothing to her — merely simulating a great distance and letting Duke Threnhold’s curse run its course. The three Jedi engage in a difficult battle of wills to try and banish the ghost. During the fight, Horath almost sacrifices too much of his Lifeforce to try and protect Rune and Kerr unbelievably tries to tap into the power of the Dark Side, which only fuels the Dark Ghost. But in the end, Satal Keto — crying out to Freedon Nadd for help — is defeated by the Jedi and experiences The True Death.

The Force Told Me To

Curator Dinhint is at home with the scribbled notes he had made of the Necronomicon Exmortis but a broken Sith amulet from the ancient history section. Having called for help, Vox, Horath and Kerr arrive — not knowing at the time, an Evil version of Dinhint wearing a long coat pushes past them on the way out. Inside his apartment, they help him fight off multiple homunculus — including small versions of Horath which formed when a mirror with his reflection is smashed by Dinhint. Unable to refuse a challenge to a ‘roar’ contest, the homunculi sling shot one of their own into Horath’s mouth, forcing him to swallow it. An “Evil” Horath then splits himself off from the original. Meanwhile, Rune, Zeeona and Tarrant are dining on a balcony at a restaurant called Clarendox. Suddenly, their waiter is shot by a sniper who is high up and firing upon the crowd. When stopped by Rune he is calm and content and simply says, “The Force Told Me To”. Detective Ian Yash is investigating one of Zeeona’s old professors, Gentill Albrem who calmly killed his whole family and tells the story without any remorse. He also mentions a glowing figure and that The Force had told him to do it.

Goodbye, Kirrek

Heading them off at the spaceport, the group manages to rescue the Princess from being raped by the Krath soldiers before being taken off-world (Travis is not there, having gone on ahead). Speeding back through the city, the Knights sense danger from The Skytower. Viscount Mordecai is sacrificing young virgins in the basement in an elaborate ritual where the girls are placed on vertical platforms and connected by tubing, bleeding out through each other. The Viscount knows some Sith magic and is able to create illusion copies of himself and attack the Jedi with magic missiles. He is also defended by more Mutoids — chemically and magically modified girls. The group defeats Mordecai but Force-sensitive blood is spilled in the center of the room, completing the ritual! The team races out of the city in a speeder, trying to return to their ship but bounty killer Mon-Ko Jett is there waiting for them.

In order, they see the mystical green Vortex envelope the whole city — and two more just like it. The Princess is saddened by the deaths of her people — 3 cities destroyed in a flash. Realizing that she must confront Satal, even if it means marrying him to stop the innocent deaths, she will. With tears flowing down her face she says, “Take me to Koros.”

Homecoming

As the Sunjammer leaves Ruan, a bored pirate leader opens a channel and demands they jettison half the Phrik which they presume in on board. Arriving back in the Empress Teta System, they land on Zeeona’s home world — Kirrek. She places a veil over her face and dresses in clothes left behind by Soolin but is so beloved that she is still recognized by an elderly couple outside of a major metropolis. In the city, they see Krath soldier everywhere and witness rebels attacking a troop transport. They contact the resistance through Chevner who was trying to stop the Krath from taking more young girls for some unknown purpose. Taken to the Rebel Base in some unfinished underground transport tubes, they meet Avalon, the head of the Resistance, speaking with her other right-hand man, Terloc. Avalon explains that Zeeona is a symbol for the rebellion but the Princess proposes a policy of non-violence to win the hearts of the people and explains that the some of the Krath soldiers are natives of Kirrek. The Rebels gain momentum and knock out a communication relay and signs can be seen that the tide is turning while at the same time getting reports of some unusual activity at The Skytower — the base of Krath operations on this world. However, the Krath troops begin to pull out; the rebels are certain they have won! Zeeona gives a moving speech that today will be known as their Sovereignty Day but it is interrupted by Space Commander Travis as Krath troops and Mutoids appear at every entrance. They begin killing random rebels until Avalon reveals herself, demanding to know who betrayed us. Travis begins to take the Princess and Avalon away and once cleared of the room, the troops begin firing — even killing Terloc who reveals himself as the traitor. Vaen rushes after Travis and manages to delay him for a time although at the cost of her lightsaber.
