    Abandoned temple under ground training area on Ziost

    The world of Ziost could be a frozen waste land at times, but only on the surface. Deep underground the warmth of the planet could be felt and enjoyed. Many creatures lived in the under ground tunnels and hunted there as well. Yet one area was no longer the lower level predators hunting ground for a greater hunter and force powered creature has called the area his home. A noghri from a troubled back ground was now living in the lower reaches of an abandoned temple. Here the force seemed to swell ebb and flow in and around the noghri.

    This Noghri, Cho Wroth, has spend his time in a self appointed exile after a few sith refused to have him on Korriban. The time on Ziost was good for him for he was able to connect with the planet and the life in the area. A few Sith hounds had formed a pack though weak were now living with him. He made sure they knew he was not prey right away. They also saw his power and kill to kill with out much effort.

    Here in an arena of a training ground room he lived and grew stronger with each passing day. Much of his later training was rough going for he did not have access to any holo-crons. So much trial and error was done before his a new skill or way of doing some thing was ready for the outside world. He always tested what he was trying to do with what he learned from his time at the Rakata temples of his home world.

    The force of the planet though wild was strong but many places were misguided broken from what the force was telling him. So he listened to the force more often than the Sith writings, for many of those were damaging to the body and mind. He also knew that the force had a better way of doing the same thing and letting him release his emotions at the same time.

    Once more he closed his eyes and concentrated on the broken bones and rocks around him. He put each into an orbit that felt right and opened his mind to the force letting the force guide him and show him what was next to see in the universe.

    In the darkness weaved the emotions of this sith searching out others of like mind. The force echoed many signatures both weak and strong of force users who practiced and used the dark side. Into this darkness Cho opened up himself and sent a pulse of his own energy out into the force like a shout in the darkness. Now all he had to do was wait for a response or action in kind.

    He slowly opened his eyes and looked around himself to watch the orbiting debris. Sighing he withdrew his power and the debris fell to the floor with a heavy thud and clattering spooking some of the Sith hounds. Cho stood to walk towards the surface and get some fresh air. A couple younger hounds followed him as body guards would, but it was more for the chance to catch some thing easy for the pack to eat. The fresh air flowed into the upper levels cool with a slight bite. Winter was loosing it's grip upon the area letting a fall/spring feel take hold.

    On the rare off chance Cho saw a transport fly over head. He took note as to the direction and knew that in the next week or so he would be able to track the flight line of the new arrival. More ships had been coming to Ziost in the past few weeks. He could also feel the growing dark ones arriving. The power of the planet was also growing with the new blood of various beings joining together on Ziost.

    Ziost. A gravestone for the Empire. Whilst the battles on Ziost were victories, and had pushed the Jedi out from the sector. However it would be shortly after Ziost that the Jedi would take the ancient hone world of Korriban. That the pretender to the empire would rise. Using all his greed and list for power to kill the Empire. Now as Courscant lay under siege and Korriban under the thumb of the Jedi. Blorrar has come here to mourn the former Empire. One that could hold itself together.
    But then he felt it.
    It was a strong presence, a cry of power in the darkness. Blorrar would hear it’s cry trough the force. He thought that he had to reach the call before the rest of the Inperial forces on the planet took it. Blorrar couldn’t allow the collapsing Empire to take a resource to endure the Sith would exist in the future. He’d walk in the direction of where he felt the pulse of darkness.
    Blorrar would arrive st the foot of the temple, slowly rising up it’s path. He eventullay enter into it’s depths. Blorrar would activate his crimson blade, as he slowly searched the depths of the temple for the beast that had made the cry through the force.

    Air is constantly moving from the surface through the lower levels and out to a higher vent area that was designed for fresh air movement. So when the smell of a new being flowed from above, both Cho and the sith hounds was alerted to the presence. Keeping his presence and his signature limited so to make the inital encounter easy for both sides.

    Though the temple had many tunnels a nexus lounge room gave everyone easy access to nearly every area. Here he waited in the shadows but the Sith hounds took up positions around the room. Cho checked his saber settings and then decided to go with a crystal dagger of his creation. In the shadows he fingered the dagger and breathed in the air to test to see what being was coming down into the temple. What he could figure was that a sith was coming to see what had made that force echo.

    Blorrar continue his path down the winding tunnels. Blorrar would reach out attempting to feel the pulsating darkness. He felt it culminating into an epicenter at the end of the tunnel. Blorrar ventures into the bowels of the temple, encountering nothing of note.
    Blorrar then arrivied into the lounge, but as he did he notice a sith hound guarding the room. A hound? If they were wild inhabitants of the temple they would of attacked him earlier. No, these belonged to someone, someone nearby. Blorrar has fallen into the trap, he didn’t have a choice no longer. Only thing could now do was, try to make a attempt at diplomacy. “ I have waited to speak with you.” He shout into the dark void. However he also prepared if this thing was hostile, he raised his saber to prepare a defense. For he could of walked into a trap, a trap to kill him off.

    From the shadows Cho slowly walked out, with his signature in the force limited as far as he could hide it while not being hidden with in the force. As he moved forward four other sith hounds moved from around behind him to take up positions around the new comer.

    It is good to see a fellow sith back on Ziost. Are things not going well for the Lords and Ladies?

    Cho eased back into the center of the room and lowered his hood reveling his reptilian face. Keeping his voice low he chirbled at the hounds to ease their nerves. A few of the hounds were sniffing the air as they closed in on the new sith. Cho hissed and barked at the hounds to set them back a bit.

    Do not mind the hounds they have yet to eat today. Anything that breathes is fair game. So no quick moves if you will.
    My name is Cho, Cho Wroth. What is your name an what has happened to the Sith to make them retreat to Zoist?

    Hmph. Blorrar’s assumptions were wrong. He thought he be dealing with a quick to anger brute. One that’s fly out and attack him in a blind fury. However this being seemed crafty, a trickster. Blorrar would have to be careful.

    Slowly striding into the cave, as not anger the hounds. Blorrar would fully enter the chamber. He’d then turn lookong to the being whom made the cry across the force.

    A Noghri a firecracker warrior your people are..” He’d say before

    The academy halls sit empty. The Empire is doomed to fall, Korriban is in the hands of the Jedi. The homeland has fallen.”

    Blorrar would stop. To think of the state of the empire, the empire was a shell. He however had found a gem. A powerful force sensitive, one who could help him. He couldn’t allow this Noghri, a waarior to go waste for the boring corpse of the empire.

    A non-force sensitive has been allowed to gain the power of emperor, able to raze Courscant. The empire is in shambles, the lords are fleeing.”

    What he didn’t tell the Noghri was that Blorrar wished to join them. To flee into wild space, to keep the Sith tradition alive. To make a new dark side, one that would rise among the shadows once more.

    Closing his eyes he let the hate slowly wash over him. He needed to take action now to find a safer place. His home world might suffice but old feelings still ran deep in him about the past actions of his clans men. So the current action would be to search out the Sith that were coming planet side and regroup.

    From what you said the order is in retreat. Pathetic, if they were true to the Order they would have died to protect the land and taken many with themselves. I've seen many ships arriving in increasing numbers. Soon others will come to clear the Sith out of Zoist.

    Stretching out in the force he lightly touched the newcomer to sense is force signature. If the nature of this one before him was dark then he would let him follow to the compounds near-by.

    Opening his eyes and turning his head to a Sith hound near him he chrubbled and set a thought through the force to gather the pack and follow. The hound turned and moved down the hall as Cho continued to search out the signature of the new comer. Cho felt in the force to let the new one join in the move would be fine. If the new one did give him trouble then he and the hounds would eat well that night. The sound of sith hounds soon came from the tunnels behind him. Twenty hounds of various ages and sizes slow made their way from the dark tunnels.

    Let us not wait to be found by those that would see us dead and go join the others of the fallen order. .... Oh and one thing if you betray me or do harm to any here you will not end as fodder for the worms of Zoist.

    Cho walked past the new comer and headed to the surface. As he walked past the other force user he let his full power be seen, no longer hiding it within the force of the temple. Like a blast furnace his force power poured from his being and tendrils of darkness waved in the unseen force. With a deep roar Cho started the pack of sith hounds moving.
