What is going to happen in your plot?

Tagline:
Looking to expand their own knowledge in the more arcane aspects of the Force, Alym and Alyse will venture out to Dathomir to seek out a copy of the Book of Shadows, with the intent to learn Nightsister Magics. However during their exploration of the Dathomiri ruins the only scraps of information that they can find is a few crumbling pages of rituals that the two Sith will try and fill in the blanks using the Darkside, that whilst fails to achieve their intended goal of learning Nightsister Magiks, they discover a means of Sith Alchemy

Detailed Plot intent:

Not being satisfied with just the powers of the Darkside, the two Sith Guardians will venture out to Dathomir to satiate their thirst for knowledge of the Arcane aspects of the Darkside. It is during their initial arrival and ventures traverseing deeper into the forrests of Dathomir, that the pair will incounter a Sector ranger, Thalia who the two Sith find out that Thalia is suspectable to the darkside, something that they would seek to exploit Thalias insecurity for their advantage. Once the sector ranger has fallen into their thrall, the three will venture deeper and discover the ruins of a nightsister settlement, which after clearing out the local fauna and make the ruins safe to explore, they discover their quarry. Only to find that only a handful of pages are barely usable
(Book of shadows - only remnants that they can obtain are heavily stained / weatherd pages on talismans & totems and Transformation - Akin to this state of damage)

In their stubborness and inability to admit defeat, the three travel to remote location in the Outer Rim with their partial and barely usable pages - finding that alot of the specific details on the Dathomiri rights are unintelligable and missing. Rather than giving up and venturing back out to seek another copy, the group will attempt to experiment and fill in the blanks, using and applying their own understanding of the Darkside as substitutions. Whilst their efforts would be subject to failure, with their experientations on some of the local 'volunteers' ending with grim results. Their persistance starts to yield results, finding that they are able to bring about mutations in some of their victims.

Finding some degree of promise through their experimentation and series of trials and errors, they move onto the next of the remaining pages, working their way through more volunteers as the seek to focus in on alterations to the physical properties and inbuing items with their victims life Force.

What other writers (and their characters) will be a part of this?

Will mostly focus in on the following participants:

Alyse Ti'varnus - Myself
Alym Brokkos (Pending Approval) - @Logan
Thalia Windraider - @GABA

How many threads will this plot have?

Looking at 6Nr threads

Include opposition type for each thread (DM, dice, ASK/OPEN, etc):

Will mostly be Self DM

What do you or your character hope to achieve with this plot? What is the "end-game?” Link any items you’re seeking if applicable.

The endgame for the characters would be for Alym, Alyse and Thalia to rediscover the basic fundaments of Sith Alchemy so they can further refine and perfect techniques in later plots and threads.

As part of the plot's perameters, there will be no acquisition of any usable means of learning Nightsister magiks, the book of shadows discovered would be pretty much in ruin and un usable, baring a few scraps of pages that would only give the three a slight indication of the original rituals, which through trial and error they adapt to make their own workable alternative

Do you need any involvement of canon/site NPCs or faction leaders to be DMed by a staff member? If so, please detail who/what and for what purpose.

Don't invision there being a requirement for any special characters

You link the book of shadows but is that just for reference/fluff rather than for the actual reward? I don't see Sith Alchemy linked in the end-game section. Can you link that please?

In the "number of threads" just state the number of threads. Explain specifics in "what is going to happen in this plot" if you wish to.

Okie thanks for that Dara, will make the updates shortly (after post work break from pc) beyond the above are there any other observations in principle?

I'm going to say no to the Dathomir magics. Nightsister magic is something in of itself that needs to be rediscovered. I advise learning alchemy a different way than that otherwise you would be doubling the plot length/difficulty just for starters most likely.

You're auto-finding the Book of Shadows which requires an artifact hunt in of itself as well. If you want your plot to be just about alchemy, just about the book, or just about nightsister magic then we can focus on that but adding multiple discoveries in one plot will make things understandably more complicated. Not impossible, but just more complicated.

Thanks Dara,

Have done a bit of a re-write to take on your comments and go with a more refined angle to help address the concerns regarding learning three elements for the price of one plot so to speak....

The overall premise would stay the same with a few amendments, the Sith head out to Dathomir to find and learn Dathomiri magics, however despite their discovering of some ruins, all they are able to find are just a handfull of readible fragments. Rather than swallow their pride they decide to make do with what they have and experiment trying to find something that works. Hopefully that way the only usable discovery they make is Sith Alchemy, with the book of shadows being as much use as a list of ingredients and no recipie as it were

Reckon that might work?

I can see that working. As long as they’re basically searching for Dathomiri magic and don’t find much of anything. I think that would be a good catalyst for looking into Sith alchemy but you would have to give a good process or obstacles to overcome in the threads to represent that “rediscovery” of Sith Alchemy because that would essentially be how you are learning it in this case if that’s how you want the story to represent it. It could be pretty cool for a character’s method of learning an ability isn’t through stumbling on someone else’s work (a holocron with teachings) but actually inventing a technique only to realize it’s already been invented. Would play more towards their intelligence I suppose.

Noted Dara, will agree it will be certainly a more worthwhile arc having the challenge of discover g it for themselves rather than finding the text book and doing the experiments flawlessly. Hopefully can also lead to some frayed tempers and arguments as well.... Let the Darkside really knaw away at them lol

Hi Dara,

It's short hand for noting quantity, unfortunately its became a force of habit from writing specifications and contract documents to note 6 Nr, 2Nr etc whenever I put a number to anything at work.

ok. No worries. Just was thinking "6 near" or "somewhere in the ballpark of 6 threads" or something but this looks good.

Lol that's a fair one now you mention it can see it as being used in the context of near... Too many overlaping anacronims /abbreviations
