What is going to happen in your plot?
The Sith Eternal is all about the dark side and artifacts. While the galaxy has a lot of sith related relics in countless hidden spots that doesn't mean that every hunt for items is going to prove fruitful. Kai and Ana are sent as a recon team to investigate a possible relic's validity though things do not go according to plan. (like they ever do)

What other writers (and their characters) will be a part of this?
@Darasuum = @Kai
@Painus = @Ana DAmico

Where are all the locations in which your plot will take place?

Jabiim

Please provide a basic in-character timeline of what you expect to happen. Include opposition type for each thread:

Thread 1 - Mine's In the Shop - Self-DM
Malakai's ship is unavailable at the time of his this dispatch being issued. As a result Ana and he both ride together for their job in her ship. When they arrive on Jabiim it is of course raining. The rumor is that with all of the natural erosion as well as mining operations there may have been an unearthing of an old Sith cache. Nothing so exceptional as a tomb but perhaps some trinkets or clues that could help the scholars of the dark side understand the old ways more clearly. After doing some communion with the Force, asking the locals, and searching by whatever means they can muster the two dark siders begin to think there isn't anything. But they eventually hear about a some 'find' by some miner just one town over.

Thread 2 - Splash Zone - Dice
Heading there (dealing with dangerous terrain) they try to get whatever 'find' the miners discover. It turns out to be nothing more than a small pocket of assorted Grand Army of the Republic equipment. Among are the sabers of two jedi, one knight and one padawan that died in the clone wars. Kai is keen on getting at least one of the lightsabers, or at least the kyber crystal(s) inside them since neither of the lightsabers work after what they've been through. But the miners dont' want to give up their find to some recent arrivals and are defense towards the new arrivals. It can be done diplomatically or taken by force but only time will tell.

Thread 3 - Bleed It Red - Self-DM
Eventually they'll make their way back to Ana's ship. The two then can head back, and report what they found. During the travel Kai will likely seek some guidance from Ana and bleed his lightsaber crystal before creating his very own lightsaber for the first time. Otherwise it's some chill time for the two dark siders to swap some chit chat, maybe.


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.
Kai will have earned a lightsaber. Ana will possibly get a second lightsaber (if she wants). Together they will just be ultimately doing a 'false alarm' job on behalf of the Guardians of the Eternal.

Do you need any involvement of canon NPCs or faction leaders to be DMed by a staff member? If so, please detail who/what and for what purpose.
No

While I don't see an issue with the threads themselves, is there any particular reason that this has to be a plot? Obtaining a lightsaber - particularly for two members of the SE - isn't something that requires a plot. While I think this is a cool story to do, I'm not sure if I'm missing why this needs a submission

Probably a left over mindset from last TL. I think you're right. These threads can just be done without a real plot behind it. I thought getting and bleeding a crystal would need some work and was not sure either so that contributed to it. If its unnecessary then I think it can be dismissed or 'rejected' and we'll just do the threads normally.
