I came, I saw, I procrastinated
A deep sigh could be heard in their head.
"No no no... how did you get this far? at this point it's not even amusing anymore... Think of it this way, it's telling you where you can find my resting place."
"Oh wow, it's good to know there's someone familiar with the concept of respect. Then again you still invaded my tomb so what does it matter.... Anyway, as amusing as that is, I don't require that. You're here for my resting place after all, so take it as a hint."
HEY! Why are you still here?
A loud booming laugh was heard "But what life is there aside from the Sith!?"
Via use of the datapad, Azrael was able to come up with a somewhat coherent phrase, but it was incomplete.
Here my feet are... , for I am a Lord and this is my...
For some reason the scanning took an incredibly long time, but finally they were able to obtain results. they had narrowed down the location to the same compound that the republic team had located.
Soon the Dark lady engaged its stealth systems and made it's way towards the planet. Due to the heavy forests they looked for a nearby clearing they could use.
"Ugh really now, you call yourself a Sith? Dissapointing! why don't you actually make an effort this time?"
The Reaper drops out of hyperspace near Felucia. It scans the space around the planet first for any ships and picks up the SpecForce Vessel.
"Do you think we should make contact my lord?"
"No, let's stay out of their way, so long as they stay out of ours. For now just get the most accurate location possible, and prep a squad to accompany us."
Lok and his companions made their way to the Dark Lady along with a group of stormmarines and commando droids, while Arkanus worked to get an accurate location to start their search.
Soon the two enter a room with no other exits, it would appear as though this is the final room, and the Final resting place of Kairn himself. However, there did not appear to be anything resembling a coffin. There were some chests strewn about the room, shut tight. At the far end of the room was a large statue of Kairn himself, sitting on a throne. There was an inscription on the base of the throne, slightly worn.
"Stai Nuyak Gloture Aras ..., Nuo Nu Sua Zo Ari ir Sis Kash Nuyak ..."
Kairn's voice boomed in their heads.
"Well now you've reached the final hurdle. You've been amusing me so far, let's see how you do here."
Lok was tired of the constant training, nothing of importance had been going on in the galaxy to warrant his attention. Then the attack happened, and he had been placed in charge of the investigation by the Empress. He contacted Arkanus and headed to the Reaper to meet with her. He was accompanied by DI, as well as Raime and Velstadt.
They met up on the bridge of the destroyer.
"Welcome back my lord, it has been a long time. I Hope you've been keeping well."
Lok almost laughed at the question. It felt incredibly mundane for one such as him, but he knew Arcanus long enough to know that she was sincere about it, as well as the fact that she did not expect an answer to that question.
"Yes indeed it has, Arkanus, I'm sure you are fully briefed on the current situation. Our best lead for the bombings lies in Felucia. The Empress is already contacting the Tion Hegemony, trying to get their support."
Lok pondered for a moment.
"This is a very delicate situation. Not only will we be traveling to hegemony space, but since the bombings were all across the galaxy, there is no doubt that other factions will be investigating there. I'm sure the Empress is not interesting in starting any wars, so make sure you tread carefully."
"Understood my lord, I'll make ready for our departure immediately."
Soon the Reaper entered hyperspace, headed for Felucia.
"You invade my resting place and request some privacy? You are either monumentally brave or monumentally foolish. There will be no privacy for invaders such as you, this is my domain. Now hurry along, there is still one challenge waiting for you. Hehehe"
The wraiths were almost matched evenly with the pair. Unlike the two sith they were capable of working together better, no doubt thanks to their master, however they were not at the skill level of Azrael, and slightly better than Eis.
The first two wraiths found themselves getting cut down after a few minutes, and the remaining wraiths that went after them soon met the same fate, as the hallway eliminated their strength in numbers. now they were free to proceed down the path.
the path narrowed, and as such it could only be a one-on-one with the wraiths. They charged at whoever was in front of them.
Eis made her way through the doorway on the left. Azrael's push was only able to knock back the wraiths, but it was enough for him to make it through to Eis, he was able to slip past the terentatek as it was completely focused on her. The wraiths recovered and went after them through the door.
The terentatek continued with it's relentless assault. Eis noticed that there were some tiny openings between swings.
The Wraiths kept attacking without mercy as did the chrysalis. The injured one was too slow to catch up but kept moving.
Azrael managed to get lucky and eliminated two more of the wraiths with a single strike. Now two remained along with the chrysalis. The wraiths became more cautious of Azrael this time, with one attacking in an attempt to create an opening for the other, or to distract him for the chrysalis. The injured chrysalis had healed slightly, but not very much. It began lumbering towards Azrael.
It would seem as though the heavy dark side aura was taking its toll on Eis, for she was faced with the terentatek instead of a chysalis. It kept up its relentless assaut, surprisingly agile for its size. It was unwilling to give Eis a chance to retaliate.
"Well now isn't this entertaining, you impress me once again. I'm actually starting to hope that you survive to the end, it will be such fun!"
While the Sith lord was very proficient, he wasnt quite as amazing as he believed himself to be. He was able to take out the first wraith that attacked however the rest attacked in a group which caused him some difficulty. Their speed and manouverability was also a problem, as they were capable of moving in unnatural ways to avoid Azrael's attacks. The chrysalis beast moved in to the battle and looked for openings where it was able to attack Azrael without harming the wraiths. The wraiths were aware of this tactic and attempted to position Azrael between them and the chrysalis beast.
The terentatek now blocked Eis's view of any other enemy and kept approaching her quickly. It began swinging at her with its large arms, trying to stop her from firing any more arrows.
The injured chrysalis beast was still recuperating.
The wraiths are able to halt a few of the detonators but some make their way to the creatures behind. The Terentatek took some minor damage, but one of the Chrysalis beasts took some heavy damage, though it did not die. The Wraiths seemed unharmed.
The wraiths moved in on Azrael. opting to all attack at once, using their speed and numbers to their advantage.
The Terentatek moved towards Eis, the arrows not seeming to cause too much damage to it. The relatively unharmed Chrysalis beast moved towards Azrael to attack when it would get an opening. The other one stayed in place, slowly regenerating the heavy damage it took.
the wraiths move quickly in an attempt to intercept the detonators. The terentatek simply braced itself while the other two beasts backed away.
"Oh my, back for more, this ought to be good... or prove to be another disappointment."
The doors did not close. Upon noticing the couple, the force wraiths moved forward to the center of the room. The monsters moved to flank either side of them. From this distance it was clear to the couple that there were 5 wraiths.
"Well to think I actually had some hopes for you. Another day, another disappointment."
The creatures remained at their posts.
The wraiths moved quickly and stopped the detonators in their tracks, their distance was enough that the creatures only felt a minor annoyance.
"Looks like you've made things needlessly difficult for yourself, little Sith. Perhaps you should just give up."
The creatures returned to their exits and waited patiently.
"My creations aren't as foolish as you I'm afraid."
"Well now I hadn't anticipated anyone being a complete fool. So be it."
All three doors opened. Behind one of the large doors was a large hulking terentatek, modified heavily by sith alchemy. Behind the other were two large chrysalis beasts. A group of force wraiths exited from the door ahead.
"Well it was amusing while it lasted."
They all focused on the couple and began to move towards them slowly, blocking their respective exits.
"There are worse things than death, my friend."
The room they entered had a door on each side. The two on the side were very large, while the door across from them was normal size. All three were closed, while the one behind them remained open. Each door had a button beside it.
"Chose wisely, you wont get a second chance."
They entered a path that lead to a small room with two other paths. One of the paths would have lead to the Terentatek room. There was nothing remarkable about this room, it seemed as though it only served as a connection for the paths.
"Congratulations, you have passed two of my challenges. You are clearly on a different level from the incompetent invaders I've had to deal with. Though I have to wonder why you would waste your time on the second one when the way forward was open to you. No matter, from now you will witness the true extent of my power. Good luck."
There was nothing more to do than to move forward.
Once he began to see with the force, the room seemed to alter slightly. The three doors that were previously there vanished, and instead a new door appeared at the opposite end of the room.
once more they arrive in a similar room, however now the words were clear
Tave qy aukoti ziurti
Once more the room is similar. The words were more clear, they could make out one word, "Qy."
Once again they find themselves in a similar room. This time, it looked like there were was something written on the wall. However, it was impossible to make out.
Again they were faced with the same result
