Star Wars - The Old Republic

"The mission was to put the Holocron back."

DM's note: In my notes is written "As HK goes to open the door, powerball." If anyone can decipher that, you'll win yourself 5 xp.

Upon leaving the airlock, the team is forced into a room full of Dark Side energy and murals on the walls. They begin succumbing to some of their worst fears.  Except Cobal, who first receives a worrying call from Darth Eradikus. 

Vergere sees her father on the wall, but isn't quite sure what to make of it. HK takes a picture.

They discover a hidden entrance leading deeper into the tomb, but don't know how to open it.

Continuing to the north, they discover a sarcophagus, a terminal, and a cupboard full of holocrons. Sensing danger, Kodo stands in the entrance. The others replace the holocron and are attacked by a trap, surprising no one. A mounted gun escapes the sarcophagus, but is quickly dispatched with an excellent blaster shot and a well-placed grenade. 

Once the team gets by the security system, they ask the holocron of Naga Sadow how to leave the room. He tells them to try the door. They do. It opens.

To the south, our intrepid adventurers discover two flights of stairs leading deeper into the tomb. Not as easily fooled this time, they toss a lubricated tuk'ata corpse down the stairs to set off the trap and make their attempt easier. Our session ends with the call of a fearsome shyrack.

Delving into the tomb of Naga Sadow

Not happy with being left behind on mission day, Vergere intimidates herself onto a shuttle and beats the team to the tomb.  She notices a droid bars passage into the tomb, but decides to ignore it until the rest of the team shows up.

Finally, everyone is gathered together and ready to begin exploring the tomb.  A brief questioning of the droid shows that it has been guarding the doors for a long time and has forgotten its master.  Allowing his impatience to guide his actions, Kalt decides to attack the droid.  A shield easily blocks his miserable attempt.

The party argues for a few minutes about what to do with the droid, but ultimately decides to destroy it.  After a quick skirmish, they loot the body and discover a triangular datacron that looks like part of a set.

Upon entry into the tomb proper, they are quickly stymied by a puzzle involving runes and decide to explore elsewhere.  In the next room, they discover a collection of bodies and are attacked by hungry tuk'ata.  They dispatch the beasts easily enough and discover another triangular datacron among the corpses.  Their spirits renewed – or possibly realizing it to be the only way forward – they return to the rune puzzle.

After putting some actual thought into it, it isn't long before the party realizes the Sith Code is the key to further access into the tomb.  Through The Code, their chains are literally broken, and they can continue into  an oddly-placed airlock.

Outset

As our story begins, Kodo and Kalt are called to meet with Lord Rukh.  The Kaleesh has received orders from Darth Eradikus to have Kalt return a holocron to the tomb of Naga Sadow in the Valley of Dark Lords.  Kodo is to act as his support.

Darth Eradikus' orders came with the stipulation that Kalt's task be observed by Cobal Sayser, a field auditor.  Worried that his superior is following his actions too closely, Rukh sends his personal assassination droid under Cobal's command.

A shuttle is dispatched, and our adventurers are taken into the Valley of Dark Lords.  The trip should have been simple, but the shuttle passes the tomb and lands several kilometers away.  They begin to cross the desert, but the journey takes its toll: the Rodian has difficulty in the environment and falls, skinning his knee.  Unused to wandering in deadly wastes, Cobal succumbs to his fear.

They reach a chasm and decide that instead of wasting daylight trying to find a path around it, they will risk the climb.  They succeed without wasting precious resources, but are attacked by a fearsome gundark on the far side.  The beast is slain, and the group continues its march toward the tomb.

Night falls, and the group is set upon by a ghost of the Force.  The fallen sith does not like Naga Sadow.  It tells the players that the holocron contains knowledge of training techniques and Force powers.  The spirit cries that this knowledge should never have left the temple.
