To long have i slept. The world outside has changed but as predicted darkness gathers and i shall answer its call. Stepping from my tomb buried beneath the sands of a forgotten world long since tainted by the dark side i can feel my powers unfolding once more. Darkness whispers in the wind. The sand forms images before me. I grin the dark side has risen once more. I trek across the empty desert confident in my knowledge that i will be recovered from this. Place. The sands continue to whisper in my ear as i walk. I have slept for too long but now I have risen.

Many days have passed and yet i remain here. the dark side can only sustain me so long now that i have awoken i must leave this retched place soon. I sit down in the sand the sun beating down from above barely registers as i send my mind out looking for a way to escape. The sun is already setting when I find what i'm looking for, a small outpost not to far from my position. The fact that it took me all day to locate is evidence that my powers are not yet fully returned. Perhaps a field test is in order. The camp is now in sight it appears to be a smugglers camp, what they are smuggling this far out is of little concern to me, making sure that i get their ship before they can attempt otherwise is. A stealthy approach is best... Perhaps once i get closer i can start to "work out the kinks". I can sense a lookout nearby as i the sand dunes near their camp i am as yet unseen. Reaching out with the force i quickly choke the life from him, his body rolls down the hill.There was an almost inaudible whisper and an unnatural windcovered the corpse with sand.

I lay atop the sand dune where the sentry had once stood only minutes before. The camp before me was not over large most likely containing more then twenty people. This should be easy for myself... Provided my powers have stabilized somewhat since my awakening. I must make sure not to draw on all of my capacities at once or i may destabilize my connection to the force. I got up and slid silently down the side of the dune right up to the front of the camp. Light flooded out i would not be able to stay hidden here to long. So i decided to try a more direct method. Walking up to a pair of men armed with lasers i quickly drew upon the force and sent a wave at the pair pushing them to ground where another blast shattered their skulls, a great cloud of sand erupted into the air enveloping the area in which i stood. It was time to work out the kinks.

I could sense the smugglers rushing to the cloud. Perhaps it was excessive but no point in stealth now. A yell sounded and blasters shots began to lance their way through the cloud. They could not see me but i could sense them. Theirs shots flew wide and those that did not i simply evaded, this was exactly what i needed. Once the volleys had stopped i felt it was time to end this. Drawing my light saber from beneath my cloak. It felt good to have the ancient weapon in my hands again. Its red light illuminated the cloud i stood in. I could sense their fear now, it felt empowering. Striding slowly towards them they began to fire at me again but they were panicking now and their shots either flew wide or where deflected away by precise blocks from my Light saber. I reached out to the nearest smuggler and using the force pulled him into the cloud slashing out with my saber as he passed by decapitating him. I began to laugh as i reached out to another in the same way and pulled him in. Tonight would be a night of slaughter.

End of chapter One.

Chapter Two

The new management

The shadows danced about me as fire consumed the camp. One of the smugglers had set of some sort of explosive drum during a panicked volley. Most of them where dead now I could still sense about four of them left hiding at various locations throughout the camp. Their fear hung in the air so thick I could almost see it, a smile inched its way onto my face. But i had no time to end their pathetic existence I have to make it to the ship before the fire reaches it. I stride towards the Vessel now ignoring the flames that attempt to creep up on me only to shy away at the last moment, as if they were afraid. It must have looked other worldly a hooded and clocked man striding through the fire seemingly without haste or concern. I reached the ship which was thankfully still intact. However this vessel would suffice. I walked up to the door passing my hand in front of it and stepped through the now open door. I sealed it behind me and made my way to the bridge.

I sat at the bridge of the ship it was a mess hardly even worth being called a ship. It was more akin to a pile of garbage with an inexplicable ability to use light speed and not kill everyone inside the instant (mainly me) the second i swwitched on the engines. I started up the engine, the engines began kicking up sand and wind as they powered out. Many of the flames were extinguished by the sudden gust and those that remained leaned away from the turbulence. I could feel the ship beginning to list off. Once I was a significant distance above the ground I fired up the main thrusters. The ship may have been a hunk of junk but the engine certainly had some kick to them. It was only a matter of seconds until I was off that sandy wasteland and entering the void of space. I looked down below at the small desert moon I knew I would have to return there eventually but for now it was time to get down to business. I checked the ships navigation I would travel to the ships next destination for answers then I would continue my search. A search, which had gone on for far too long. I would find him, and I will kill him and then and only then would my revenge be complete.

I was jarred out of my meditations by the engines suddenly powering down and switching into full reverse. I was rather inelegantly flung from my seat and forward onto the control panel. Picking myself up and while attempting to maintain some dignity I had left. Once I had regained my composure I began to wonder why the ship had stopped. It didn’t take more than a glance out the viewport to see that I was in trouble. Out the window I could see what appeared to be some sort of frigate and judging by the design it was republic, they hadn’t changed their design in quite a long time. I attempted to fire the engines back up but they were shot, shoddy smuggler repairs probably the problem. All I could do was sit back in the command chair and wait to be captured. Today was going to be an interesting day. The ship shook slightly as their tractor beam locked onto me and began to draw me in.

There was a dull thud as my ship was forcefully docked to the side of the Frigate. They would be here soon I sat in my command chair there was no point in fighting at this point I couldn’t take on a full company not in my current condition. There was a hiss as the air lock was forced open and the patter of running feet. Soon they were at the door to the bridge, seconds later they began cutting their way in. I had sealed it purely out of spite I could be so petty sometimes. Several minutes later a sizeable chunk of the door fell to the floor with a loud crash and troops began storming in. I simply rotated the chair around with my empty hand presented to them. The lead soldier seemed apprehensive obviously expecting some sort of trap. The one behind him was not so cautious and barged past him and bound my hands. I was then lead at gun point to onto the frigate. I was searched and my lightsaber as well as some equipment i had scavenged from the smugglers were taken. The soldiers seemed apprehensive once they found the lightsaber especially due to its sith designs. I was lead further into the ship and finally dumped into a cell somewhere in the bowls of the ship. If I was going to get out of this I was going to need to get my powers back under control, one rather unique one being key in this situation.

I was now sitting in a small cell. This seemed to happen more often than I would like, hopefully I wouldn't end up making a habit of it. The door to room in which my cage was located opened with a hiss. I didn't bother to look up there was little point in getting to know the face of my captor. "So where did you find it?" the man said.
"Find what?" I asked.
"Don't play dumb with me where did you get this?" He said. At that I looked up, he was holding my lightsaber in the palm of his hand, its metallic sheen reflecting the light of the room.
"It's mine and I'd very much like you to return it to me." I answered, the captain snorted.
"I don't think so, you know what I don't even think this is yours, I think you've stolen it. We'll be taking you to a nearby Jedi temple to explain yourself to them" with that he turned around and began to leave.
"I'm gonna want that back you know" I called out just before he left the room leaving only a couple of guards to watch me. Felling somewhat insulted by the small number of guards I decided this was getting tiresome. It was time to leave
