What is going to happen in your plot?
Nezira convinces her twin Tashara to sneak off and go explore an ancient ruined temple inside of a mountain, only to have their big sister following, trying to stop them. Despite Nimueh's attempt to stop the twins, they all three found themselves in the ancient ruins of a temple within the mountain. Upon exploring the ancient temple, the sisters encounter a large Nydak which they, through sisterhood, managed to defeat.

However, the fight attracts a bunch of Bane back spiders and the three sisters are forced to flee deeper into the temple. In order to escape the Bane back spiders, the sisters in the chaos wander into a large chamber, shutting the stone door behind them, stopping the spiders from getting in. Unbeknownst to them, the sisters just entered a Nightsister ritual chamber, as they explored the room, they saw a lot of items and an altar, which once belonged to the long-dead witch, Talzin.

While Nimueh is a bit more cautious, Nezira and Tashara are both much more reckless in exploring the chamber. When Nezira holds a talisman, she blacks out and her Psychometry power kicks in, sending Nezira back in time to the Battle of Dathomir. When she returns, the altar glows green, and the spirit of two fallen Nightsister shamans emerges.

Furious with Nezira for waking their slumber, they possess Tashara and Nimueh. Nezira promises to do anything in returning of her sisters safely. The Nightsisters force her and her twin to sacrifice their father in a ritual, called Blood Raven. Sacrificing the father, the Nightsisters see it as a promising opportunity to rebuild the Nightsisters through the three sisters and regain Dathomir. The Nightsisters decide to tests Nezira and the oldest sister, to see if the sisters held sisterhood higher than anything else, by bringing their mother and let one of the Nightsisters possess her.

Nezira takes a chance and agrees to do it if the Nightsisters will teach her and her sisters the powers the Nightsisters hold. Agreeing to the deal, Nezira and Nimueh convince their mother and bring her to the lair, where one of the Nightsisters possesses her. Having all three sisters prove they have what it take to become Nightsisters.

The end-game is to achieve and unlocking Nightsister Magick for my character and Tashara and Nimueh, so that they, Nezira(my character) and her two sisters(Tashara and Nimueh), can reform a new coven/clan of Nightsisters.

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.
No.

So, at a glance, this plot looks like it's going to need to be beefed up or explained a bit better. Personally, I think three threads is too low to not only discover the Nightsisters, but also have three characters learn their magick. This plot is five threads just to learn about the Nightsisters, not even learn their abilities. Phoe's plot to learn Sith Alchemy consisted of four threads that were all between 20 and 40 posts apiece with player opposition included.

We also know from canon that Nightsisters are malevolent and would wholly possess trespassers in their temples, not just "latch" onto and convince someone to learn from them. Not only are they fiercely secretive, they're also extremely protective of those secrets, meaning it is unlikely that a spirit from the purging of the clans would willingly pass on their knowledge without submitting the outsiders/trespassers to terrible ordeals to even earn their trust.

You're going to need to expand this plot more to include better rationale behind finding and learning from the Nightsisters other than stumbling across a temple and touching a broken relic.

After some discussion, we're not comfortable with bringing back dead canon characters like this. Generally, when bringing canon characters into the story, we ask ourselves, "Can this story be told without them?" I think that this story can be told without bringing Talzin into the fold, so I'd like you to swap her out with some random, unknown Nightsister.

Once that's done, I'll approve the plot.

@Painus okay so since Algarus is having some RL things that keeps him from being too active. Would it be possible if I and Azzy continued the plot and Algarus just could jump in with replies when he has the time? Just so the plot doesn't go completely inactive

Yes, with the caveat that his character will not learn NS magic (or the same level of it) unless they put in the same amount of work as the other two characters, which will be determined upon review.
