What is going to happen in your plot?
Guardians@Alyse TiVarnus, @Andraste Lilith Drake and their Legionary counter part @Trinity, will visit the ancient Sith World of Moraband, in search for some repositories that may contain lost scriptures or artefacts that could be of use for their journey into further understanding the ways of the Darkside and the Ancient Sith. During thier efforts they discover the tomb of Darth Malos, and pending how well they navigate the trials and traps set in place, they are afforded the opportunity to encounter the ancient Sith Lord

What other writers (and their characters) will be a part of this?
@Alyse TiVarnus = @Topher
@Trinity = @Bran
@Andraste Lilith Drake = @Braden Drake
Dath Malos (Legacy Spirit) = @vamp

Where are all the locations in which your plot will take place?
Likely will centre mostly on Moraband - focusing in on Dath Malos' Tomb

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

Aiming to target for 3 threads as part of this plot if suitable to follow the rough time line below:

Thread 1 -Self DM/ Dice for hazards
This will take focus on both Trinity and Alyse having landed on Moraband, and make their way through sand swept valleys towards the suspected location of darth Malos. With opposition being posed by the local corrupted wild life

Thread 2 - DMed by Legacy Spirit or by Dice
Providing the pair make it into the entrance of the tomb, they have to circumnavigate traps or any trials that in place within the cave system that had been installed to repel any would be raiders - either by dice or being hampered by the resident Force Spirit

Thread 3 - DMed by Legacy Spirit,
Should the pair make it into the tomb, Dath Malo's spirit will arise and will test the two who have disturbed his tomb. If they are able to prove themselves worthy then Darth Malos would impart either knowledge or artefacts as he would deem fit.

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.
Provided they are successful, and depending on how well they impress Darth Malos' spirit, the Sith could potentially get a share of the ancient lord's interred possessions. But it would be Based on what Malos would see fit for them to be granted, as well as some knowledge of the ancient Sith order and possible leads for other locations of possible interest and exploration in follow up plots.

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.
Will require the use of Darth Malos' Force spirit, @vamp has said would be willing to reprise former character role if acceptable?

What character will you be using? Link both the character profile and subaccount.
@Roman Antilles @Percius Anzag
Roman Antilles
Percius Anzag
What thread(s) will your character be intervening in?
Thread 2
Why does your character want to oppose this thread/plot?
Roman Antilles and Percius also have an interest in extracting the possessions of Darth Malos' tomb, granting they are able to be found worthy by the spirit.
How does your character intend to interrupt the events of the thread/plot?
Roman and Percius will be present near the cave entrance already when the trio arrive (after fighting off the wildlife in thread 1). There will be a confrontation present and likely combat involved. (If necessary, though non-violent demands will first be offered.)
What do you or your character hope to achieve with this interruption?
Roman either intends to defeat and send the trio away so that he and Percius can proceed through the tomb on their own or if not fully successful, perhaps an arrangement can be made with the trio so that all 5 PCs can pass through Malos' trials together.

It doesn't look like you mention Braden's character anywhere in the body. You say "pair" a lot but not "trio".

For a good story I might suggest you ask yourselves the following questions:

Where did these characters hear about Darth Malos and why do they think that he can provide them with anything they might want? Where did they come from to get to Morriban? Did this traveling have its own trials to overcome or was it a simple "get in a ship and go from point A to B"?Why do they think they are worthy of being gifted with the presence of a long dead Sith Lord let alone any items he might have in his tomb?

This is also a legendary Sith Lord's resting place with possibly priceless knowledge. It's sacred ground and would be monumental for anyone so shouldn't be waltzed into even if there weren't threats like traps or local fauna. In general at minimum someone has to get to Morriban, get past traps and then they can maybe get a view of Malos's ghost since there's no guarentee that he'll show himself. It's frankly the bare minimum to do this sort of thing since most anyone can pretty much accomplish the obstacles you've listed above. I don't personally think Malos would be all that impressed by anyone so far this TL since nobody has done anything.

In short there are two options @Topher .
1: More substance and more of a journey to get to the tomb is needed so add probably two more threads with a reasonable premis
2: Before talking with Malos everyone rolls a single 1d100 on a table I've made which will decide whether or not you'll be able accepted by Malos or rejected.

Sorry about the pair / trio, had edited in Braden's character during my lunch break at work following conversation on the Sith channel, was gonna update after got my posts out of the way

Though all in thats a good point, with the 'acomplishments' aspect. it might well be a bit premature to go legendary tomb raiding at this point .
Though background wise - Had been thinking about some of the reasoning behind as to the relative importance of Malos, which would stem to some of the ancient history of her home planet Bakura, surrounding the folk tales of the Crimson Menace, where the name Malos would appear in some of the obscure history books or folk tales stemming from Bakura's history. That Alyse would have been more interested in pursuing, as she's currently intended to be a researcher into the Sith's history

Perhaps for the time being it might be best to freeze this application, and chain it as a concluding plot for a series covering some of the past stories of the board, that had fallen to myth and legend that leads up to this point.

If you want it then I will reject this plot. You can look back and keep what you had originally planned if its still viable. Does that sound alright?

FYSA: There is no Spirit of Malos anymore. When Palpatine died, all the spirits of the old Sith Order died with him, and so there would be no spirit lingering around his tomb. A plot down the road to interact with his spirit would be rejected on those grounds alone.
