    Jedha Temple
    *Open to any Padawans - This thread is meant as a place for Padawans to learn to use Telekinesis better in combat. I will probably close this off and some point and possibly split people up into small threads to practice to keep everything manageable.*​

    Firen moved around the empty training arena, placing the differently colored beanbags in a large circle. Telekinesis had been one of the more consistent things he had been able to train as he had been traveling around with his Master.

    He had come up with a game to help practice, that was more fun than listening to some Jedi Knight ramble on and on about theory. Playing with his Master was no fun, she was way better than him and the once or twice he had gotten lucky and won, he suspected she had let him win. She was weird like that.

    When he found out he was going to spend some time on Jedha learning with other Padawans he was excited to test out his new game. Even if only one other person showed up, it would be fun but he hoped a bunch showed up. There were a lot of Padawans these days, and their number was growing. It took a long time to learn enough to become a Jedi Knight, and Firen hoped they would all grow a bit closer to that goal today.

    He waited for others to join, tossing one of the bags up into the air at catching it, whistling to himself.

    Breath in and out, let the knowledge that the universe is with him. It was nervous he had accepted joining and becoming a Jedi and now he had arrived on Jedha hoping to do some training. Supposedly learners here worked together to help one another. Which wasn't all that different when he fought with the Rebels during the small little boot camp they had. Still he no longer had his armor that he had grown to consider like a second skin. Now he was just in a simple white tunic and earth brown pants, supposedly Jedi didn't wear all that much in the old stories, that he had recently been reading. It was his attempt at trying to catch up with all the lore of the Jedi since he was joining them.

    But when he landed he felt that the world was more alive compared to every other world he had been on. It was strange, most likely it had to do with the Force and the number of people touched by the Force that lived on this world. The sensation of the world despite the intensity, was soothing. It was interesting, at least for him, who this was all still very new to all the wonders of the Force.

    But despite all that he was nervous to see the other learners. How behind was he in learning the techniques that so many Jedi supposedly had? Still he focused on his breathing something that now was allowing him to focus and remain calm in spite of the way the galaxy was. As he walked into the arena he was first surprise it so empty.

    He knew the Jedi were low in number but on the world supposedly for the Jedi it was shocking to find how few there actually was. The galaxy where trillions was considered only a small percentage having so few Jedi was hearting breaking. He had grown to see them as returning heroes in a way, a returning to a better galaxy. Yet with so few and the rebellion which required the Jedi to help them in their fight it was a wonder that the Jedi were still around at all.

    Seeing the few bags scattered in a circle, Alexei continue to walk closer and only barely noticing a small creature also in the training arena. It was only two feet tall and looked more like a critter then a person. But it was wearing clothes so it had to be intelligent.

    "Hello friend is this the place where the Jedi learners are suppose to met up?" He was hoping he didn't run into some other sort of religious order but the feeling in his heart told him that he was suppose to be here.

    Another day on Jedha. In truth, it was really Vardon Galland's second day on the planet but at least he had got the chance to familiarize himself with the city a little. The Thyferran walked down the crowded streets littered by market stalls and people from all walks of life. He was clad in some simple white clothes with his puffy shirt just long enough to hide the lightsaber attached to his belt. The young man was also carrying a beige bag from a local vendor, containing a locally made bow which was awkwardly sticking out of the bag along with the accompanying arrows. Using the weapon against people hadn't crossed his mind, but it did seem like an interesting semi-useful souvenir.

    Entering the temple, Vardon made the same observation as he was sure others had already made - their numbers seemed to be very low. Bar from the ones tending to the temple, he had barely seen any of them at all. Echo could be heard from the padawan's boots clicking against the floor as he ventured further down the halls, greeting whoever he encountered with a friendly smile and a nod. Navigating in the temple was a little more difficult than he imagined, but following his intuition, he eventually found one of the entrances to the training gronds. In his way stood a humble wooden door.

    While most doors were opened automatically, this one seemed to be more primitive. The Thyferran approached the door and put his right palm on it's front "Wood on Jedha" he whispered while feeling the material underneath his hand. Finding wood to make a door on the planet couldn't have been an easy task, but then, it could just be imported too.

    The door was interesting, for sure, but it could only keep his attention for so long. After a few moments, Galland opened the door and was greeted by the sight of a rather small creature, seemingly jovially, tossing a beanbag up in the air. Next to the furry being stood a much larger human. Vardon didn't recognize any of them, but considering the circumstances, he was glad to at least have two learners there with him.

    The Thyferran just barely heard the question which the other human asked, which at least confirmed that the two of them were there for the same reasons. He walked up to them and bowed casually with his head "Padawan Vardon Galland" he said, introducing himself before continuing "I'd like to know the same thing" referring to the human's question.

    It had been a while since Calath had been to Jedha. It felt like Deja Vu to the Padawan as he walked the streets as nothing had really changed. Well yes there has been changes. But everything is relatively the same, at least by landmarks that the teenager can still recognize. Coming back did bring about some bad memories that Calath had been trying to keep locked away at the back of his mind. As equally though it brought some good. It is the bad memories that made the teenager wonder if coming back was a good idea. Yet he felt the pull guiding him here, so perhaps it is time to face the past despite how badly he doesn't want to. Ah well. He is here now so all he can do is deal with it.

    The young man slowly made his way towards the temple. Steadily so he can take everything in. Eventually though Calath reached the temple. He felt that this is where he is meant to be as the young man entered the temple. The Padawan looked around as he walked through the halls, noticing that there are very few here. It was so quiet that he could hear the footsteps of his boots on the floor as well as quiet whispers as some who are in the temple quietly talked among themselves. It felt more like he was walking to a funeral than some place that he may come across other Jedi at. Perhaps at some point in the past, when it was not over run by another fanatic religious group that terrorized what they labeled as Believers, it was bustling with activity. Maybe one day it will be that way again around here.

    Approaching a heavy set of wooden doors, Calath took a deep breath as he pushed the doors open. Stepping through the teenager noted that there are two humans and.. some sort of rabbit standing in the middle of the training grounds. Looking to the other three the young man felt a wave of nervousness well up inside him. He does not know these people so it was a bit hard for him to feel that he can trust them. But in the end Calath smiled as he said, "I take it we are here for the same reason?"

    Jedha was an entirely new experience for Amelia. Vast open stretches of desert were quite a shock to the system after she had spent her whole life trapped on an ecumenopolis and the sheer lack of... anything, was strange. The air tasted weird, but she could get used to that and it was so much more than nice to have a place where she belonged now.

    She tentatively walked the corridors, her boots clacking against the stone floors and her steps echoing throughout the seemingly empty temple. Outside it had been madness in the market, buyers and sellers chatting loudly and music from all across the galaxy playing from everywhere. Every now and then someone dressed in robes similar to those she had been given upon arrival would walk by, usually with a smile on their face and greeted her happily. She liked it here already.

    Amelia had been told to go to a room at the end of the long corridor, where she found a few others milling around, and beanbags littered on the floor. Slowly, she walked towards them, her left arm crossing her torso to hold onto her right arm. A million thoughts raced through her head: What if they don't like me?, What if I don't fit in here?

    Shyly waving to them, Amelia made a weak smile and introduced herself, "Hey guys... I'm Amelia? I'm kinda new around here..."
