THE GREAT HUNT HAS BEGUN!
With the SECOND GREAT HYPERSPACE WAR finally drawing to a close, those who remain must now deal with the aftermath. While the Galactic Alliance managed to weather the storm of the Brotherhood of the Maw and come out victorious, the rest of the galaxy has been smothered in the wake of the conflict. In light of the chaos now enveloping the wider galaxy, the New Jedi Order’s council has elected to organize a GREAT HUNT to quell the warbeasts left behind that now ravage the former holdings of the dark superpower. Jedi across Alliance space now rally to lands beyond their borders to lend their blades to the hunt, eager to put the ghosts of the Maw to rest. As the Order’s bravest face down the lingering darkness, a NEW MOVEMENT rises within its ranks to take the first steps towards recovery and reconstruction in a brand new era….
“The war is over, but the Alliance can only embrace that relief if we make sure that remnants of our enemy don’t strike at defenseless people while we celebrate.”
- Valery Noble , Sword of the Jedi
Maw space is burning. The war torn population of Osseriton has sent out a distress signal to the Galactic Alliance, calling for relief from a sithspawn outbreak, released by a rogue band of Mawite Sith as a last ditch effort to stir chaos. With the Brotherhood of the Maw now fallen, Sword of the Jedi Valery Noble leads a team of Jedi into the dark band’s former territory to answer their cry for help. First responders must act fast, as the world is already under siege.
"Not everything dark was born that way. Sometimes, they just need a hand extended to help. I was the same way."
- Kahlil Noble , Shield of the Jedi
Following the collapse of the Maw, a team of Jedi are dispatched to the terrestrial planet of Ool, led by Shield of the Jedi Kahlil Noble. Their goal: Capture. An outbreak of juvenile sithspawn on the former Maw world has prompted interest in research into the reversion of their corrupted state. The New Jedi Order hopes to find a method of returning these beings to their natural state, making use of Kahlil’s extensive knowledge of sith alchemy. With the cost of the war already great, there is a growing desire to reduce the lives that must be taken.
“We did it. The war is over… but what was it for if we leave the galaxy to rot in its wake? It would be like saving them from a beast only to abandon them, wounded in the cold.”
- Jasper Kai'el , Sentinel of Harmony
The Chiss are battered, their home world destroyed and colonies swept up by the Maw. As other task forces move to clean up what the fallen intergalactic terror left behind, Jasper Kai’el, newly appointed Sentinel of Harmony, leads a newly established relief task force to bring aid to the Chiss refugees of Ool. Jedi volunteers have joined up with the NJO Shield Core for its maiden expedition, bringing supplies and top of the line healing equipment to the last holdouts of the world that survived the Maw’s onslaught.
Optional: Raiders have begun swarming former Maw holdings, ambushing wayward vessels for valuables. Jedi volunteers must take to the skies in the Shield Core’s H-99 Headsplitter Patrol Crafts and escort supply shuttles safely to the planet’s atmosphere.
