Star Wars; Diminished Hope

Execution and Mystery

The party heads out from Ossus to the Yuuzhan-Vong world of Zenoma Sekot and hires Gray Jedi Jolee Bindo to guide them to Darth Andeddu. After nearly being eaten by a huge and terrible Ruthka beast, Xan joins the party again and they meet Darth Andeddu and his apprentice. Determining that indeed Crado came only to learn, and that Andeddu was not the mastermind of the Coruscant Disaster, they moved on.

Travelling to Munto Codru, the party learns a terrible truth; a huge fleet of Dreadnaughts has been commissioned by Crado and his Master Exar Kun. The Jedi return to the council on Dantooine to report their findings. A grave mood hits the council as it seems another of Master Vodo’s Padawans has turned to the Dark Side. In an attempt to satisfy the needs of the Galactic Republic, Crado is to be sent to Coruscant to be tried by the Magistrate.

The party escorts Crado to the trial, and after he is found guilty, Xan Katarr executes Crado by saber on live Holonet. Afterwards, Chancellor Sidrona and his son Dace throw a suare’ for the Jedi to thank them for solving the mystery. Xan then reveals to Sidrona that Exar is also responsible, causing some stir but more truths are revealed.

The party then assists Sholla, Mallik’s Jedi Instructor, in the Empress Teta system, with the strange Krath Droids. With the capture of Duchess Wyssa, the Krath Rebellion seems to be over.

Now the party must venture to Onderon to assist Sylvar and Ulic Qel-Doran in the capture of Exar Kun…

The Coruscant Disaster

The party begins on Ossus after they have become full fledged Jedi Knights. Master Ooroo has asked them to travel to Coruscant to assist Jedi Master Krynda to establish positive relations at the new Jedi Temple. After arrival, Krynda asks the party to travel to an abandoned battle friggit called the Dreadnaught that has entered Coruscant space. Master Ryter gives them the details. With his suped up starship the Interceptor, Mallik Khiff escorts the party aboard the abandoned vessel only to find carnage to droid and Munto Codruians alike. After further investigation, the Jedi find the ships origin and location of the single lost shuttle, as well as suspicions that a Jedi Knight named Crado may be involved. Upon departure, the ship explodes and Mallik barely escapes. The ship breaks into large pieces, falling into the atmosphere of Coruscant and devestating the buildings below, not to mention the shockwaves the rip apart the battle friggits of the Republic Navy.

With Council permission, the Jedi travel to the Kuat ship yards and speak with Commander Kar-Shon who has found the exploded remains of the Dreadnaught escape shuttle. On the surface, the party sees the shuttle did not explode at all was but set to look as though it did. It has landed near a Sith Temple. Upon activating the door, strange new-model droids open fire, attack with vibro-pikes, and one even wields a light saber. The battle is fierce, and the Jedi sustain heavy damage. There is no time, they make haste within only to see a shuttle leaving a space port at edge of Darth Drekkis’ burial alter. Mallik takes off after the ship while Xan and Bren discover 2 Holocrons of Drekkis’ teachings have been stolen. With a succesful flurry Mallik disables the other ships stabilizer engines and it careens into the valley. A badly wounded Jedi Knight, Crado exits speaking of “passing the test”. The Jedi are dubious, and so call for help. Jedi Master Exar Kun comes and arrests Crado to take him before the council.

The party arrives back on Ossus and debriefs the Jedi Council. Master Vodo declares that Crado learned from a Darth Andreddus, and they must travel to Zenoma Selot to discover the origins of this mysterious figure and what actually transpired behind the terrorist strike on Coruscant…

The Sith War Era, circa 4000BBY

The Great Sith War, also known as the Sith War, the First Sith War, and the Exar Kun War, was a galaxy-wide conflict which took place between the years 4,000 BBY and 3,996 BBY. One of the largest engagements of the Old Sith Wars, the Great Sith War saw the rise of the Sith, once again in opposition to the Jedi Order. The roots of the conflict are traced back to the fall of Freedon Nadd from the Jedi way and his ascension to Dark Lord of the Sith. Eventually his dark influence was discovered on the planet Onderon and the ensuing battle saw the Jedi temporarily break Nadd’s hold on the remote planet. This fight against the resurgent power of the Sith was a warning to the Jedi that something ominous was brewing.

The influence of the Sith, however, again resurfaced during the Freedon Nadd Uprising, which managed to establish the means for the Krath to grow in power and influence. Using Sith knowledge that they had gained from Nadd and his followers on Onderon, the Krath instituted a bloody coup in the Empress Teta system and began a series of campaigns aimed at Republic space. After several defeats at the hands of the Krath, Jedi Knight Ulic Qel-Droma advised the Jedi Order that he would infiltrate the Krath and destroy them from within. During his undercover mission, Ulic fell to the dark side and joined forces with another fallen Jedi-turned-Sith by the name of Exar Kun. Eventually, Kun was anointed the new Dark Lord of the Sith with Qel-Droma his apprentice, and together they ushered the galaxy into a new Sith age.

With their allies, Exar Kun and Ulic Qel-Droma launched a series of deadly campaigns against the Republic, eventually making their way to the heart of the galaxy—Coruscant. Following this battle Kun and Qel-Droma launched an assault on Ossus, in an attempt to raid the planet of its Jedi artifacts. However, the battle of Ossus saw the defeat of the Sith forces, the capture of Ulic Qel-Droma, and the retreat of Kun to his base on Yavin 4. Broken and humbled, Qel-Droma agreed to lead the combined forces of the Republic Rim Fleet and the Jedi to Yavin 4, in an effort to defeat Exar Kun. Under the combined efforts of the Jedi, Kun was defeated and the Great Sith War brought to an end.
