Summary

After training with a Force Mentor (F&D note, 5XP cheaper access to new force powers) and the Rebel Aliance for a few years, a mission comes along that will send them back to where the came- specifically, the old Archives beneath the Inquisition-occupied Jedi temple on Corusant.

Table Breakdowns

  • "Tourist" entry: Using the Temple's new role as an indoctrination museum for young imperials, one team "takes the tour", then steals away at a certain point to continue on with their mission. (The "top" entry.)
  • Sewer Entry: An infiltration team breaks into the Temple from the sewers and the underbelly of Coruscant and makes their way up. (The "bottom" entry.)
  • Exit Guards: Originally left as a reserve and escape plan in case something went wrong, the first problem happens rather closer to home.
  • Distraction Group: Combat-oriented and/or disruption-oriented, this group's entire purposes is to bring the Temple guard's attention elsewhere so as to provide openings for the "top" and "bottom" temple groups, while simultaneously avoiding capture themselves.

Coruscant Overview

"Over the centuries, Coruscant had developed into an ecumenopolis, with a total of 5,127 levels of city built up from the crust by the time of the Clone Wars. The actual planet-wide metropolis of Coruscant was called Galactic City. Under the Galactic Republic, the names Republic City or the City of Spires were also used to reference the city. It was also called Imperial City under the Galactic Empire, and New Republic City under the New Republic. However, in practice, Galactic City and its other names were sometimes applied to the Senate District, the central government center and de facto capital of Coruscant."

Manarai Mountains

"The Manarai Mountains were two twin mountains peaks, one of the few places on Coruscant that remained free of skyscrapers and cities. They were located near Orowood and the famous Imperial Palace, and were east of the Western Sea. Many floating restaurants revolved around the Mountains, giving patrons a unique view of the natural wonders.

The Manarai Mountains included the tallest peak, Umate; the restaurant Manarai; the Monument Plaza; and were home to the Flames of Umate cult. It was beneath the Manarai where Lusankya was hidden. Luke Skywalker had built a private retreat on the mountains shortly after establishing his Jedi Academy. "

The Works

"The Works was the name of a large industrial area of Coruscant. The area was located in the Dacho District,[1] which was close to the Senate District and next to the Fobosi District. It was an immense manufacturing center for many companies, who would later abandon the planet for cheap labor and off-world facilities. Prospective urban developers released stone mites, duracrete slugs, and conduit worms into The Works, in an attempt to clear the area out so it could be purchased and refurbished. "

"At some point during the existence of the Galactic Empire, Level 1313 was the site of a ruthless criminal underground network"

Galactic Museum

Galactic Museum- "This museum contained various artifacts and relics from thousands of different cultures; both still living and those that were long lost. The body's membership consisted of teams of anthropologists, librarians, scientists, historians and archaeologists all of whom were dedicated for the quest for knowledge. Their efforts allowed for a constant addition to the museum's archives which meant that expansion was an ongoing process as new halls were added in order to store new artifacts as well as lore. The Galactic Museum was a large complex structure that was divided into numerous halls with artifacts devoted to a single individual culture or instead contain either physical or historical relics of close civilizations which held only a small number of surviving artifacts.[3]

The different exhibit wings took days to explore and contained information on the Annals of the Galactic Republic, the History of Hyperdrive, the Jedi Order, Masterpieces of Expression, Flora and Fauna, as well as Planetary Cultures. The collective number of artifacts numbered in the billions though only one percent was ever on display. Instead, the millions of other artifacts were stored within the archive building within the CoCo district. Another location for the storage of such artifacts was in underground vaults of immense size that were located in the frozen moon of Improcco. A security system were used to take pictures of anyone entering within the residence of the museum in order to deter and capture any thieves that sought to steal treasured artifacts.[4]

One of the more infamous halls within the Galactic Museum was the Sith Hall. This wing of the complex was located forty levels below the top most structures and individuals seeking it had to navigate a twisting series of corridors. It contained various artifacts recovered from the fall of the Sith Empire, including Sith books, amulets and talismans. After being created, it was known that these dark side tainted artifacts sent whispers of their influence through The Force. However, the Jedi Order overlooked this fact as they believed that the combined presence of some many Force users simply drowned out the temptations of the artifacts. Unknown to many, a number of such artifacts had, however, come to the museum through illegal means which meant no administrator or Jedi had managed to inspect them. Many individuals that sought to learn of the Sith such as their knowledge, beliefs, civilization and magic often came to this branch of the Galactic Museum.[3]

Coruscant Underworld

"The Imperial Palace, originally known as the Presidential Palace or Palace of the Republic, was a massive complex of buildings located in the Palace District of Coruscant, an ancillary of the Senate District. Originally built as a residence for the Supreme Chancellor of the Galactic Republic Senate, the Palace also served as an office building, complementing the delegation offices of the Senate Building. Following the election of Chancellor Palpatine, the Republic Executive Building was erected in the Legislative Borough to accommodate overflow from the Palace.

Following the catastrophic Clone Wars, Chancellor Palpatine eradicated the Jedi Order and declared the reforming of the Republic into the Galactic Empire and renaming the Palace as the Imperial Palace. Expanding the complex significantly, Emperor Palpatine created a labyrinthine maze inside the pyramidal structure and confined himself to his throne room for most of his reign. "

"Following the Declaration of a New Order and the rise of the Galactic Empire the Sith used the Temple as a trap. Broadcasting a false signal to surviving Jedi telling them to return to the Temple as the Clone Wars were over, the Empire planned to execute the survivors of Order 66 as they returned to their home. Fortunately for the remaining Jedi, Grand Master Yoda and Master Obi-Wan Kenobi had been rescued by Senator Bail Organa and decided to return to the Temple and deactivate the beacon. Entering through a sublevel hangar the Jedi slew Decoy Squad Five and made their way through the Temple until they reached the central security station where they were able to recalibrate the beacon to warn the survivors to run and hide. While there Kenobi delved into the security holos and confirmed his worst fear, the man behind the slaughter was Anakin Skywalker, his former student and friend. The two Jedi separated in order to hunt down the two Sith and kill them; neither succeeded but Vader was critically injured, setting back Sidious's expectations for him.[19]

Vader would be sent back to the Temple by his master in order to retrieve the Sith holocrons stored there. Vader knew this to be a test of his will, if he could pass through the Force-imbued Temple without succumbing to the horrors wrought there he would be commended. Vader was accompanied by Head of Imperial Intelligence Armand Isard whose men had detected a hacker in the Archives. Vader suspected that it was Purge fugitives Roan Shryne and Olee Starstone. While Isard got a location for the two Jedi, Vader wasn't able to get to them before they slipped away again.[25] The Imperials proved inept at detecting other hackers as Padawan Ekria was able to slice into the database and delete all records of herself and fellow Padawans Drake Lo'gaan and Zonder.[26] "
