One year later and Pantora was still burning. Not every agent of the Empire withdrew along with their Emperor. Fanatical Children of the New Order continued to harass a beleaguered Pantoran Guard under orders from Sith handlers. Reconstruction efforts were hampered every time a new war zone sparked up. Despite the Pantoran's superior training and homeworld advantage they were helpless to curtail such wanton acts of terror. Scattered rebel holdouts kept the city from falling into enemy hands but this place was on the brink. Hope was dying.
Until the Colichemarde changed everything.
To his amazement Captain Drake found when his crew arrived in system they were not alone. Reinforcements were pouring in from throughout the territories, OPA radicals ready to fight for the cause over a symbol of Sith aggression. Atlas wasn't here to fight the Pantoran's war however. He was here to end it. A state of the art planetary shield generator was being deployed over the moon, cutting off the terrorists' supply lines and starving them out once and for all. That's why he was on board a not yet fully functional shield gate overseeing the installation personally instead of on the bridge of his star cruiser. The Sith would have no choice but to launch an attack and there were even rumors that Emperor Carnifex himself was monitoring the situation with renewed interest.
"Is this the latest intel from Orto Plutonia?"
He frowned at the datapad. Before losing contact with their scout party Atlas had received some disturbing reports about the Talz tribes. They were displaying unusually aggressive behavior both towards other locals and outsiders. Traps were set around their villages and spiritual sites. The last thing he needed was a native civil war which meant calling in specialists. Perhaps the secret lie somewhere in their Force attunement...
"We need some kind of Jedi down there."
// ACCESSING ALLIANCE UNDERVINE //
// UPLINK ESTABLISHED //
FULLY OPERATIONAL - Pantora's allies have returned bearing gifts. Protect the shield gate from Sith sabotage efforts until construction is complete. Meet with local officials in the relatively secure orbital 'green zone' or escort fuel tankers to resupply a thirsty Alliance convoy.
APOCALYPSE NOW - Take the fight to the Sith and their lackeys on the streets of Pantora. While the central city stands relatively intact its outskirts are still bombed ruins in varying states of all out warfare. Eliminate Children of the New Order or rescue trapped survivors.
DANCES WITH SNOW WOOKIEES - Driven mad by all this conflict in the Force, the peaceful Talz tribes are on the brink of civil war. Navigate past primitive traps and enraged mystics to purify local holy sites and calm their restless spirits.
BYOO - Bring Your Own Objective!
