The dusty old Dreshdae settlement that hails back to the time of the Jedi Civil War and survived the Clone Wars sits as the capital and only settlement on Korriban. Chariot is set down in the landing port and is cleared by customs. Its owner descends from the rampart followed by his loyal pet Lord Cronos.

T'Rani Stargazer and her followers were here. But where? If only Ori'verda had some contacts here that could help him find his way and attain his vengeance. He made his way towards the nearest cantina aptly named The Drunk Side for information.

As ori enterred the bar he saw all he expected from such a place. Except, something felt wrong about it. There was a distinct sense of fear in this place, all the patrons were silent, even the drunks made little noise.

In a corner of the cantina sat a hooded figure, Lord Lok. He had just finished 'questioning' the patrons of this place and was now enjoying a drink his dark inquisitorium droid stood guard over his booth. He was arter sith arifacts that rightfully belonged to the order, as well as answers. When he was awoken his memory was mostly gone, and the sith that found him refused to divulge information as to his past. He felt that this mission was the best opportunity to for him to know of his past.

He looked up as the mandolorian enterred, his reputation preceeded him. He kept an eye on this one, interested in what someone such as himself would be doing in a place like this.

With most of the patrons hushed and a large, hulking droid standing by a dark hooded man it did not take much effort to conclude what the cause was of the silence in this already bleak and dreary place. Dreshdae was all but lively just as Korriban itself.

Instead of meddling in foreign affairs he simply sat at the bar and called for the attention of the barkeeper whilst Cron'ika sat on its hind legs near his master.

"Have you seen any Mandalorians around these parts lately?" Ori'verda asked the barkeeper. Arms folded across each other. He was relatively unarmed with no gadgets and only his twin Shukure equipped in their holsters.

the bartender spoke in a hushed tone, though he seemed less afraid than the rest of the patrons. "Lots of mandalorians come and go 'round these parts. you're gonna have to be more specific sir." The bartender eyed the mandalorian, the last thing he wanted was any more trouble.

Lok couldn't help but overhear the conversation, Ori'verda would not go after just any other mandalorian, someone very important had to be here.

"I would imagine they looked heavily armed and armored even by Mandalorian standards." Ori'verda replied with a slight tone of annoyance. Vengeance was so close yet for it to elude him now would be absurd. In a fit of fury he would tear apart Korriban rock slab by rock slab with his bare hands until they clenched the neck of T'Rani Stargazer.

"Also they would be looking to hide somewhere around here." He finally added after some time. The Mandalorian started to carefully scan the cantina and looked through the slits of his visor to mask his sight. Still the cloaked man and the sturdy droid awaited in the corner and still the patrons held their breath.

Lord Cronos grew restless at the inaction and started to gnaw at the boots of his master to display his desire to continue onward.

"aye, I may have seen a group pass by here. Had enough weaponry to arm a small army. One of them got drunk and mentioned something about a tomb. Kallig, I think the name was."

Lok was startled by the name. It sounded so familiar, yet he was sure he had never encountered any with that name. It was a strage feeling, one he rarely had. He got up and left the cantina, patrons cowering as he passed. Outside he sent DI to the ship, then cloqked himself and waited for the mandalorian.

Disappointed Ori'verda shook his head and remarked "Sith tombs are generally unmarked." He pondered for a moment. Not all was lost provided he found a map or a guide of whatever kind. Anything that could help him to find his way.

"Anything else that could help me?" Ori'verda asked with a tone of hopelessness. The Mandalorian was not yet willing to give up on his search.

"Not much, i don't know much about sith tombs. that man, with the droid, he was very interested to know about artifacts from the tombs. if you ask me, he's looking for smugglers or looters. i damn near ****** myself when he began questioning me." the barman leaned in closer. "if you ask me, i think he might have been one of them sith."

knowing he helped all he could, the barman went back to his business. The atmosphere had picked up now that lok had left, with the patrons starting to enjoy themselves a bit more.

"Thanks" With a nod Ori'verda took his leave and went on to search for the elaborate Sith. He faced a Sith warrior before in combat but just as his skill was only rising the Sith warrior must have been a mere acolyte.

He walked out of The Drunk Side and looked around searching the area for traces of this mysterious Sith Lord. But there was no sign or foot print to track and no citizens nearby to ask.

As Ori looked around for the sith lord, his motion sensor showed a new object. He turned around to find himself facing the same hooded man from the bar.

"mandalore, or is it just ori'verda now. I am lord Lok, from the sith order. I am on the hunt for certain people inhabiting the tombs of korriban, it seems that you are too."

Lok took a few steps forwards, noting the strill and not moving too much to provoke it. He felt he needed this one's cooperation if he was to ever find answers to his past. The strill growled at Lok but it also exhibited a small degree of confusion, Lok was totally unfamiliar to anything the creature had encountered.

I know that sith tombs are rarely marked, and for, 'outsiders', such as yourself it would be hard for you to tell one from the other. I can point you in the right direction, but in return I ask that all artifacts found in the tombs be turned over to the sith empire."

He paused, then concluded.

"what say you?"

"Your relics are of no interest to me, Sith. You can rest easy." There was something about this Sith warrior. He was forward and direct as well as seemingly honest. The lack of caution and earnest behaviour could imply a certain naiveness but Ori'verda choose to believe in honor among warriors instead. It was refreshing to say the least.

With one hand he waved Lord Cronos to calm down and with another reached out for towards the Sith.

"I accept your offer, Lord Lok."

OOC: I guess we are even then. You didn't shake my hand hahaha.

You don't think my Dutch phone comes with Serbian characters right? I copy-paste my name each time I want to log in. That or it is saved automatically.


Retracting his hand with reluctance and restraint Ori'verda tried to compose himself once more. The large droid did not catch his attention and they probably never would. He left such to Corden. Though it did amuse him that he was judged a threat despite not being as heavily armed as he could be. Aside from his Shukure and integrated systems he was unarmed.

"The Mandalorians I am facing were once the elite units of the Hegemony's military." He said finally. "A worthy adversary... But none of my concern." His head drifted off into the distance towards his vessel. Cron'ika as if sensing his intention strolled a bit forward only turning back with a glance, awaiting confirmation.

Without looking back towards Lok Ori'verda responded once more. "Send me a message once you know the location." With that he departed following his pet towards the Chariot.

"very well." Lok thought to himself. He and DI made a move towards his ship whilst he analysed the datacron. It mentioned that kallig's tomb was right next to the tomb of Tulak Hord. Tulak Hord? Another name that brought back that strange feeling, only this time he had heard of the name before. Tulak Hord was an ancient and great dark lord of the sith. It mentionsed Aloysius Kallig, Tulak's greatest ally.

By this time he reached the ship.

"DI, run a scan for ori'verda's vessel, it must have arrived recently, and try to find his communication frequency if you can."

He went back to the datacron. It mentiined that Tulak grew fearful of aloysius's growing power and eventually had him assassinated. Aloysius's followers learned of this treachery, and attacked Tulak for his betrayal. Again Lok had that feeling, this was the first time he was reading of this, yet it felt like already knew of these events. The feeling grew stronger and eventually overcame him. He blacked out.

OOC: tried to do this earlier, but moddb wouldnt work :/

Part 2

Lok was alone in a room. It was small and plain save for some sith phrases scrawled across the wall. He was meditating on the dark side. He was powerful, he could feel it, yet he could feel others as well. Around eight sith warriors burst into the room, followers of Kallig, he recognized them. They encircled him.

"now Lok, you and all followers of Tulak Hord will pay for his treachery. Kallig will be avenged!"

Lok rose and activated his saberstaff. He roared and charged at them. The fight was long and bloody.and eventually four of them lay dead at his feet. One the remaining few flicked their wrist towards Lok, and he felt a sharp sting on his neck. He reached for the source and pulled out a dark. Poison? How could he allow this? His vision began to blur...

"Little Sith!"

Lok awoke with a start. "what...what is it?"

"I have found his ship, it is here in the spaceport, shall I send a Message?"

"Yes, tell him to meet me in the valley of the sith lords"

"very well." with that DI left to broadcast the message.

A flashback? This was new. Clearly he was important in this conflict, and was tied to Tulak Hord somehow. The tombs would hold the answers he seeked, and he needed them now, more than ever.

OOC: That flash back was well worth the wait!

As the Chariot powered its engines Ori'verda took notice of the message Darth Lok had sent him. They were to meet at the Valley of the Sith Lords at the Tomb of Kallig, whomever that was. Next to the Tomb of Tulak Hord, an ancient Sith Lord Ori'verda was a bit more familiar with. He set a course for the Valley and initiated a search for Kallig and Tulak Hord on the Holonet and the Battle-net in order to find more information on what to expect.

Ori'verda made his way through the cozy Chariot and into its armory. The search query transferred to a hologram here while another displayed inventory and statistics regarding the armory.

After the recent incursion on Iego the Mandalorian felt it was once more time to expand his arsenal and since then the Chariot was home to a vast amount of gadgets, explosives and weapons of various kinds and the collection was ever expanding. His Legacy Beskar'gam was also modified and included older designs into it with integrated armband blades and a stealth field generator at the cost of his motion sensor and data crystal module port.

Ori'verda picked equipped his right wrist with a flamethrower and blaster. The weight was evenly compensated when the customized fibercord whip and gas capsule was mounted upon his left wrist. Inside his belt pouches he packed six thermal impact grenades and two DetPacks along with two clips of ammunition for Beviin. His left and right shin pockets held a single data breaker and lock overriding system respectively. Runikal took its position on his back and to the side of his jetpack. Across from Runikal was the relatively smaller Chaos in its own slot.

He was now thoroughly equipped for the job of tomb raiding and eliminating rogue Mandalorians.

OOC: If you consider me too heavily equipped please consider that I have tried to value the weight and size of each object realistically and also take note that I am relatively underarmed for a Mandalorian. Bloody Boba Fett had kneepad rockets!

OOC: not sure if you're being sarcastic about the flashback or not:p

IC: Lok left the ship with DI. he was equipped with nothing but his robes and saberstaff, not to mention his knowledge of the force. DI followed behind, he carried a heavy rotary cannon along with a shock staff and laser pistol. the cannon could switch between ion and laser rounds. he made his way to the scheduled meeting point. just out of view of the tomb entrance, so as to hide them from prying eyes.

Lok had heard the stories of ori'verda, the empire has eyes and ears everywhere. he had a hunch as to who these mandalorians were, but he thought it best to keep it to himself. he awaited ori's arrival.

OOC: Honest of course.

Fully armed and equipped Ori'verda made way towards the rampart. The Chariot was of no use to the Mandalorian in the ancient catacombs of the Sith so was given an automated flight path.

The pad revealed the sun baked world of Korriban which contrasted with the cold durasteel interior of the Chariot. Cron'ika growled but Ori'verda waved him to stay. When the light switched on it signaled Ori'verda into motion and he disembarked from his starship, falling through the sky. Closing to the ground Ori'verda activated his jetpack briefly to soften his landing.

He walked towards Lord Lok with Beviin gripped firmly in his hands and greeted the Sith with a nod.

OOC: Who's gonna rp the mandos?

IC:Lok returned the nod, DI simply stared at Ori and said "threat level elevated: dangerous." with that, Lok pointed towards on of the tombs

"that there is the entrance to the tomb of Aloysius Kallig. So far I have not spotted any mandalorians, but that may simply be because they are not foolish enough to expose themselves. The very same reason I picked this spot. Now, sith tombs are infamous for the many secrets they hold, but fortunately the sith empire did a great number of expeditions into many of the major tombs. This datacron holds cartographic information on the tomb of Kallig, including many of the secret chambers. There could be a good chance that your mandalorians may hqve stumbked upon them by accident, though we ought to have the advantage in knowledge."

He turned to ori.

"I need to know more about these mandalorians. The skills and weapons they possess. I need to be prepared."

OOC: HH is.

Although Lord Lok could not see it through his visor Ori'verda grimaced at the question. "Top-notch blasters customized for a variety of tasks, personal close quarter blades, explosives and several customized vehicles." With a shake of his head the Mandalorian wished to imply that a difficult battle awaited. His gaze returned to Lord Lok. "That was when they were still Rangers. Who knows what they have now?" With that he started moving towards the tomb of Aloysius Kallig. There was no sense in saying more because there is nothing more to say.

The tomb had a dirt path lined with several rocks of various sizes and half broken pillars towering over crumbled ruins. Soon he found himself in the shadow of a statue that likely formed the shape of the Sith Lord Aloysius Kallig himself. An imposing figure with a mysterious history. At least as far as Mandalorians are considered. Ori'verda had his visor display the most relevant topics on Kallig once more in order to get a sense of what he could expect.

*As the two of them was studying their surroundings they started to notice a foul smell coming from inside the tomb. Just inside of the entrance was a small chamber, not natural and not built as a part of the tomb, but carved out seemingly by a large creature. The creature, a Terentatek lay dead up against the wall near the door that leads further into the tomb. It had scorch marks all over its body and a large gab in its stomach.

By now Lord Lok would have noticed the increase in dark side presence. It was mostly eminating from inside the tomb, but also from the corpse of the Terentatek, and from the down below them, in the ground. Soon the ground around Lord Lok started seemingly move as dozens of Pelko Bugs, attracted to force sensitives, started to swarm him.*

Lok could feel them coming and knew instantly what they were. Pelko bugs. As soon as they rose from the ground Lok used the force to push them away from him, and applied a barrier of force underneath him to prevent any of them from burrowing out from beneath him as well as around him to stop them from reaching him. unfortunately for him it was all he could do to maintain this force barricade, and DI's weapons would be useless in this scenario. they were beginning to pile up around the barricade and the weight became almost too much.

"Quick!" he yelled with all his strength. "Use your flamethrower, i should be able to keep away the flames!"

Another person commanding him? This man was not even a Mandalorian! Casting aside his sudden overwhelming loathing and confusion as to how Lok could distinguish one wrist gadget from the other, Ori'verda complied and activated his wrist flamethrower, spraying it in a S, creating a sea of flames before him.

The Pelko bugs shrieked as the flames enveloped them and lit the sand on fire, albeit for a while. Ori'verda deactivated the flamethrower at a fourth of its charge seeing as how it would likely be extremely useful in the close quarters environment of the tomb. If they could get past its entrance at all.

*Awoken from their slumber due to the disturbances going on in the tomb. A pair of full grown Hssiss appears out of thin air behind Ori'verda, previously invisible and resting on the corpse of the Terentatek.

In a single jump one of them ambushes Ori'verda from behind while he is still dealing with the Pelko bugs. The other one jumps past Ori'verda, not fearing the fire and attacks Lok, whom are equally distracted with holding off both the bugs and the flames.*

With most of the bugs dead, Lok manipulated his barrier by folding it over the remaining ones into a sphere and crushing them with it. When the hsis materialised, the one that charged at Lok found itself shot in the side with expert procision by DI with his laser pistol. He shot it a couple more times to make sure it was dead. He turns to notice the one dealing with ori'verda, and if it was not dealt with already he would have thrown it off with the force.

*Moments before the death of the last Hssiss Lok felt something inside the mind of the Hssiss, but due to their quick death there was no way to investigate further.

Proceeding further into the tomb, they would pass through a long hallway only to find themselves in yet another room. This one was filled with scriptures on the walls. In the room they soon noticed ashes on the ground and several cases of equipment. Right beside the equipment was a Kal, a Mandalorian dagger, and on it seemingly blood.*

He enterred the room with the mandalorian equipment, now he knew for sure he is in the right place. his attention was turned towards the dagger, and the blood on it. it was fresh (i assume). he picked it up with the force to inspect it and determine what type of blood he was. during this action he was alert for any more creatures that may have given off a dark side aura.

Whilst Lord Lok was conducting his research the Mandalorian turned his attention towards the murals on the tomb walls. His fascination getting the better of him. Ancient cultures and in particular the wars had always fascinated him for as the saying goes; he who controls the past commands the future. He who commands the future, conquers the past.

Ori'verda returned his attention to the present and quickly checked his equipment to make sure everything was ready. He anticipated another attack to follow sooner or later.

Once everything was in order he joined Lok in his research and observed the equipment and ashes. His helmet feeding the analyzed information to him. What puzzled and worried Ori'verda most was the possibility that he would be bereft of his vengeance because of the beasts of Korriban although a more likely scenario would be that T'Rani and her army simply ignore or have tamed these creatures. Mandalorians, and Rangers in particular, are too formidable to be killed by beasts.

Unless of course you are the most fearsome Taung warrior whom just happens to be surrounded by all sorts of creatures on the jungle moon of Onderon.

*The dialect Ori'verda was studying was very old, at least a millennia, and thus not easily translated. However from what he'd be able to make out, it was describing a family history, mentioning different titles and positions in the various Empires the family had served, or ruled.

It didn't take Lord Lok long to determine that the blood wasn't native to anything on Korriban. An analysis would reveal it to be from a humanoid, in this case most likely Mandalorian. From where the dagger was and further into the tomb was a trail of blood, going through one of three paths. Another of the of the tunnels was collapsed, leaving two options for proceeding.

What is ahead remains unknown, as scanners for some mysterious reason wasn't able to reveal anything and for some reason the maps that Lord Lok brought with him didn't fit the layout of the tomb.*

"Well this is certainly interesting," Lok announced, "mandalorian blood on a mandalorian weapon. what madness could have caused this?" Lok was slightly worried by this, mandalorians did not tend to fight among themselves, especially when their lives were on the line, their bond of brotherhood was too strong for that. the dark side was still strong in this place, perhaps the dead were restless...

Lok noticed the trail of blood on the floor, leading into a forking passage. one of the paths was blocked, that made the decision easier, but he still didn't know if it was wise to follow the blood or not.

"I shall leave this decsision to you ori'verda, shall we take the same path or split up?"

Ori`verda Jul 7 2014, 3:25pm says:

Both pathways had an equal chance of leading into more traps or into more traps and T'Rani Stargazer. Actually they both were going to lead into more traps regardless and whether or not one of them included the fallen Rangers or whatever Lord Lok was looking for in this wretched hole of curious mystery. This tomb belonged to the dead whom were buried into it and the carrions of lost adventurers whom were taken by it.

But this Mandalorian adventurer would not be prey to such. For as long as either he or T'Rani Stargazer drew breath they would linger. One of them had to die.

The murals on the walls betrayed nothing but its history and even that barely. If it betrayed nothing then the pathways could also lead to nothing. This possibility was unsettling to Ori'verda. Strangely however the same nothingness felt welcoming to him and beckoned him to explore and find something meant to be lost beneath the desert sands of the Korriban wastes.

Casting aside any other thoughts and refocusing on the present. The Mandalorian looked in both directions before stepping forward towards the centre one. "Lok, you forge your own path." Ori'verda said without looking back moments before vanishing into the darkness of the path.

Not sure HH. I choose the centre one. Since you never indicated which one had the blood trail and which one was damaged as far as I'm concerned I could be following the damaged one as well as the blood trail.

So it is up to you.

OOC: Funny you should mention a key Milos xD


*As Lord Lok proceeded he started to sense a presence up ahead him in the darkness. It was one of the Mandalorians seemingly. The path that Lord Lok had chosen led him to a circular chamber and in it was a Ranger, but even as he entered the chamber the ranger didn't pay attention to him. The room was a dead end, all over the walls where red markings, painted by hand in markings similar to those in the previous chamber.

Upon closer inspection, Lok noticed that the Rangers hands were bloody, he had seemingly cut his own hand and painted the walls with his own blood. The markings was inconsistent and scattered, but some meaning could be interpreted from them. They stated; "The doors keep all within, and all without".

The Ranger now turned around and looked straight at Lok, he wasn't wearing a helmet and appeared old and frail. His eyes had grown dull and gray.

"No noo.. nooo... You are not here. You are not here. No one is here. Only past the door there is life. Or no life. Or something else. Something... in between, something Beyond life."

He turned away and ignored Lord Lok once again, returning to his drawing of of the markings on the wall.

Ori'verda soon found his path blocked with a large door, with two statues "guarding" it. In the middle was a key hole.

For a moment it seemed like he heard a whisper in the room.

Inspecting his surroundings, he discovers that the room looks like it is on the verge of collapsing, with large cracks on the walls and roof, making the use of forced entry seem like a risky endeavor . All except the door, which seemed like it could have been made yesterday. It seemed almost unnatural.

Once again he heard the whispers, this time his view dimmed a little and for a moment he it seemed like ghosts appeared and that he could hear them talking, about what he couldn't hear, but they they were definitely talking Mandoa.*

Lok looked around the room. The work of a madman. He was clearly the source of the blood that was witnessed earlier. He noticed the scrawlings actually made some sense. Lok pondered the meaning. Whatever these doors were, it would seem they were built to contain something, something important, and whoever built them didnt want anyone getting to it.

Then the ranger spoke, and Lok noticed their face. This aging could not have been natural, it just seemed wrong. Then he mentioned the door, something "beyond life". Lok grew frustrated, he did not come all this way to be stuck in a dead end with a madman, clearly there was no door here. He grabbed the ranger with the force. Yelling at him. "Where is this door you speak of? Tell me!" at the same time he tried to get a closer look at the man's mind.

Puzzling and bothersome. To be stuck and have his progressed continuously stopped whilst being so close to vengeance. Why is that anyway? Regardless , Ori'verda observed the statuettes for seams that would reveal a switch or hidden crevice.

As unsettling as the whispers were he would not allow it to distract him. In his mind he turned the ghosts into droids which calmed him considerably. He decided against turning his attention to the unreadable murals and sturdy door. Instead he peaked through the cracks of the room. Perhaps this entire area was meant to be torn to bits in order to escape it?

A suddenly overwhelming pressure against Ori'verdas mind affected his sight again and he could now see and hear more clearly than before. One of the ghosts in front of him he recognized as T'Rani and the others as Mandalorian Rangers. One of them made a seemingly almost desperate jump in front of T'Rani and she was about to proceed through the door, which in this vision was open, and said;

"T'Rani please, we can all feel it, something is not right about this place. We should leave, there are others places to set up a base!"

"For the last time, hold your tongue Danzik! Your cowardice is dishonorable. This is the perfect hiding place, between the wildlife here and the presence of forces weaker minds like yours might succumb to will keep both the curious and our enemies at bay. No one comes here. Not even the Sith cares for this place as much as they once did."

"Or maybe it is because that even the Sith recognize that some things should stay in the past and best be left alone. Who knows what is beyond that door!?"

"Silence! Any true and strong of mind Mandalorian will be safe. Only those weak of mind and body will succumb to any... presence.. we might come across. Now..No mater what, remember to.."

Ori'verda snapped out of it again and found himself alone in the room.

Loks move seemingly neither scared him or affected him in any other way than holding him still. Upon touching the mans mind, it was best described as "clouded" and there wasn't much to learn. Still in his own world, he continued his rambling.

"Door? What door?" He said, as if he for the moment truly had forgotten... "Matters not anymore. I am merely the guardian, I can allow none to enter. Or they too shall fall on their sword. If they are strong enough. For months, strenght of mind kept it at bay, for she was right, true Mandalorians are Strong! But not strong enough. A dam can hold water back, but either the amount of it, or time, will always breach it in the end...

First some disappeared in the tunnels, then some fell pray to the illusions. Soon it was just me and her... She soon spent all her time at his feet, she stopped eating, drinking even talking. But she didn't die, how could she? "

He paused... and looked at his symbols on the wall.
"The door!" He said out loud, as he suddenly remembered something important. "Without the key, none comes through."

In an almost reptile like twist of the neck he once again looked at Lok.

"Illusion! Pawn! Liar! Go away and disturb me no more, let me die with honor! Me, the last Mandalorian in all of the galaxy! Guarding my post... Death and dishonor awaits everyone else, now that Mandalore have fallen...Just as she said, no he. She?"

OOC: Thanks HH! :D

IC:"A pawn am i? An illusion?"

Lightning burst forth from Lok's fingers, giving enough voltage to seriously harm the mandalorian, but not enough to kill or knock him out. Lok stopped suddenly, and laughed.

"Your honour is already lost fool, you have allowed your mind to fall to those long dead, and now you are nothing but a shell. Mandalore is still standing, and i am here with another, Ori'verda. Now i will ask you this once. Was this Kallig's doing?"

OOC: Briikase gote'tuur, Pain.

Considering the violent headache as a result of the now undeniable presence of possible insanity Ori'verda checked his helmet's recordings and as he expected they revealed nothing. No sound or visual on the whispers and the apparitions he saw materialize. He tried to give meaning to what had happened but it eluded him. The helplessness was unsettling which had the same results as before. Something called out to him and Ori'verda had to heed it as soon as he could.

With no other option and his observations inconclusive he decided on one of the few remaining options. From his back plate he drew Chaos and broke it in two before lighting it. The twisted dark beams of light were thin, held back by an aura of white light. From the blades emanated the unique humming sound that was the reverse of ordinary Lightsabers.

The Mandalorian calmed his mind to give it and his body more strength in addition to his unyielding will and desire to break T'Rani Stargazer, whatever remains of her. The vision showed him that those weak of mind and body would be broken by the tomb and if she had fallen then the one to have orchestrated her downfall should have dug an additional grave. He moved towards the centre of the room and faced the door. To his sides were the two guardian statuettes. Simultaneously he cut them vertically down the middle using the two Darksabers.

*Due to his unnatural state, Loks estimation of what the ranger could handle fell short, and he suffered massive organ failure. As he was drawing his last few breaths, he remained unconcerned with all but the door.

With Loks mention of Kallig, the ranger looked at him for the last time and attempts to say something but exhales and dies. Once the ranger is dropped on the ground a key falls out of his pocket.

Soon after the place begins to shake and the ceiling starts to collapse.

As Ori'verda destroys the two statues it sets off an earthquake and the room starts to become unstable and the door begins to shimmer, like protected by a force field or, at least something very similar.*

OOC: Tsk tsk. You and your impatience Ori. Tick tock xD

OOC: i assume that means happy birthday, if so thanks :). Also, dammit ori! >.<

Lok didn't have time to think, he grabbed the key with the force and ran, DI close behind. They barely escaped the room. now only one path was left. he headed towards the path ori took. he could feel the ground tremor and made haste again. he noticed ori and the room becoming more and more unstable, and saw the door as well, it shimmered, though he did not know what it meant. he used the force to throw the key with speed and precision into the keyhole to see if it would work, if not he would return the key to himself.

OOC: You're welcome. Also; what? What did I do?

The violent eruptions in the room did not cause Ori'verda to panic as much as the flickering of the door piqued his interest. Nothing was found in the statues but at least it got him one step closer to something, even if it entailed death. Inaction was among one of the Mandalorian's few dreads he held and hated.

If the door was protected by a force field then it meant it could be disabled. Luckily for him he had enough explosives to do so but as soon as he heard the familiar flowing of robes and metal pounding he joined his Darksabers into Chaos and withdrew it.

*As the key entered the lock, the door disappeared out in thin air and the shimmering and flickering was gone as well. The ground was still shaking and the path behind them now collapsed entirely, with signs showing that the room they were standing in was soon to follow.

The next corridor was short and soon they found themselves in a great hall leading up to a large statue at the end. Leading up to was two rows of a thick pillars decorated with ancient texts. A few of the pillars had collapsed and was scattered all over the hall.

After taking in what some might consider a fascinating and breathtaking sight, they also now noticed that the room had a certain aura of hostility, like something were offended by their presence. They now noticed a figure at the bottom of the large statue, a figure clad in mandalorian armor, it was T'Rani Stargazer.*

Lok ran into the room as soon as the door disappeared without much thought. he looked around, first taking in the design of the room, then finally gazing upon the large statue in the middle. it seemed very familiar to him somehow (if it is who i think it is). he then looked towards the base to see the mandalorian standing before them.

"Ori'verda, i would be careful. i met another mandalorian earlier who was not himself, he was driven mad by the presence in this tomb. i am certain the same may be true of this one, though i'm more inclined to believe that she may well have been possessed by a force ghost, perhaps by kallig himself."

He turned to dI

"Prepare for battle"

DI engaged his laser repeater "Analysing target. Threat level: dangerous. ready to terminate with extreme prejudice."

After everything he had gone through Ori'verda refused to believe his journey was about to end. T'Rani Stargazer was beneath some pathetic statue of an ancient Sith Lord without her army and barely a threat. At least so it seemed. He was disappointed at this anticlimactic turn of events and hoped, and somewhere knew, the quest was not yet over. Between Lok, Ori'verda and T'Rani anything and everything could happen in the blink of an eye.

This was either not a trap, an obvious trap or an trap that was not obvious. Which completely covered most possibilities.

Ori'verda nodded to Lord Lok in agreement and chuckled under his breath at what the droid said. There is never talk of termination with mild prejudice is there? The one time he listened to the droid it actually said something Ori'verda could bear listening to and it was not the first time this particular droid had done such. But time was being wasted. Without further delay the Mandalorian raised Beviin and aimed directly at the back of the head of T'Rani. He pulled the trigger and released the shot.

*As the shot hit T'Rani, she vanished. A presence started to fill the room and soon their advanced equipment started to fail again, leaving scanners with an almost constant and unpredictable flickering. Sometimes it seemed to indicate the presence of things which was not there.

For a moment they could have sworn they heard laughter all around them, but were soon distracted by a voice, a female one, coming from somewhere i the great hall.

"Tsk tsk. How uncivilized. First you break into my tomb and now this? Well, I guess it is what to be expected from a Mandalorian, they have always been a shortsighted people."

Now it seemed like shadows popped up here and there only to disappear again all around them. The voice continued;

"Tell me Sith, why do you accept this kind of.. disrespectful behavior? Mandalorian are always best kept on a short leash. Perhaps the Sith have grown weak in the last thousand years... Not even being able to control some of our most willing slaves. Yeess, I can sense it. Outside of this Valley, in the force.. in You."

The voice paused for a moment.

"I am most disappointed in the company I must say. Once I sensed a Sith, I had hoped it was one of my kin, seeking guidance. Why have you come here travelers?"*

Yes, this was certainly Kallig, he was toying with them, mocking them. Lok wouldn't let it get to him, he was too close now to fail.

"Stop playing games Kallig, i am here because i seek the truth, i want to know who i am. i think you may know me, my name is Lok."

Lok was cautious about this place, an attack could come at any moment. he kept his guard up. DI was ready for combat.

At the End...

Korriban. The ancient birth place of the Sith and its Empires. In recent history however it was held primarily by the Mandalorian Empires and Hegemony instead.

Nevertheless it remained a planet that reverberated with dark energies and lost tombs to fallen Sith in the Valley of the Dark Lords. It attracted Jedi whom fell from and abandoned the Light in pursuit of greater power through darker means.

This twisted rock of evil is home to an elaborate and buried history of secrets and deceit. Home of Dark Jedi, birthplace of the Sith and safe haven of fugitive Mandalorians...
