PRODUCTION INFORMATION
  • Name: The Holocron of Darth Krayt
  • Manufacturer: Darth Krayt.
  • Affiliation: Darth Ophidia Formerly Darth Krayt.
  • Modularity: No.

  • Production: Unique.
  • Material: Gold, capstone, crystal-lattice, other holocron components.
TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS
  • Classification: Holocron.
  • Size: Average.
  • Weight: Average.
CONTENTS
  • Darth Krayt's Intellect: Darth Krayt's intellect is preserved in this holocron.
  • Biography: The holocron contains Darth Krayt's biography: From time in the Jedi, the Clone Wars, surviving Order 66 and his eventual ascension to the Sith under the tutelage of XoXaan, and Krayt's interactions with the Yuuzhan Vong. It goes into deep detail concerning the rise and philosophy of the One Sith and their dominion over the galaxy, as well as illuminating some of the fears a Dark Lord had at the prime of his power.
  • Philosophy: Darth Krayt's holocron includes a comprehensive set of lessons on the folly of the Jedi, the power of the Sith, the philosophy of the One Sith and how to govern a Sith Empire by the One Sith philosophy.
  • Lessons of a Dark Lord: The holocron contains a number of skills, lessons about the Force and the Sith:
    Jar-Kai (To complete mastery)
  • Force Lightning
  • Tutaminis (To an exceptionally advanced degree)
  • Interpreting Force Visions
  • Resisting Influence (Resisting mind tricks and domination)
  • Life-Prolonging Sith Magics
  • Force Illusions
  • Mind Walking
  • Dark Transfer
  • How to create Sith Troopers

Strengths:
  • History Lesson: The Holocron includes a vast and important lesson in galactic history and a pivotal moment in the course of the Sith.
  • Power: Krayt's holocron includes a number of potent Force Powers and how he discovered them, including Dark Transfer and Shatterpoint.
  • Darth Krayt's Intellect: The Holocron contains Darth Krayt's intellect, allowing one to seek him out for advice.
Weaknesses:
  • Wilful Gatekeeper: Darth Krayt was a wilful figure and his holocron's gatekeeper displays it perfectly. Gaining access to his information takes time and effort. One must be worthy of Krayt's attention.
  • Force-Bound: The Holocron requires a force user to open it.
  • Force Dependent: The Holocron will not open if the Force is cut off (As in an Ysalamir field).
  • Fragile Construction: The holocron's crystalline interior is very delicate, and it is easily destroyed or disrupted. Do not drop it; do not hit it with a rock, and do not expose it to extreme heat.

DESCRIPTION
Darth Krayt was once A'Sharad Hett, a Jedi Master in the vaning years of the Galactic Republic before the Battle of Yavin. He was raised among the tusken raiders, survived Darth Palpatine's Order 66, found himself in exile on Korriban where he would discover the Holocron of XoXaaan, one of the first Lords of the Sith. Under her tutelage, the Jedi Master was trained as a Sith. His capture by the Yuuzhan Vong and their excruciating torture completed his transformation into Darth Krayt: Dread Lord and Dark Lord of the Sith.

Darth Krayt founded the One Sith and rebuilt the Sith Order. Through his wars, he brought down the Galactic Federation of Free Alliances, deposed the Fel Emperor, and brought about the destruction of the New Jedi Order. He ruled with an iron fist and his challenges were many: The Galactic Alliance and the Fel Emperor had allied themselves against him. In the midst of his battles: Betrayal. His most trusted adviser, Darth Wyyrlock III, betrayed Darth Krayt and claimed his place as Sith Emperor.

Wyyrlock ruled by Krayt's principles, but Krayt had survived. The former Dark Lord returned to power, slaying Darth Wyyrlock III in the process and retaking Coruscant with his Sith Troopers. His One Sith was ready to reforge the galaxy in the crucible of war. Alas, as many great Lords of the Sith do, Darth Krayt fell to the lure of gaining the most powerful apprentice. As he tried to turn Cade Skywalker to his side, Krayt was struck down and killed.

Darth Krayt's holocron fell into obscurity, hidden by his Order until the day would come for them to re-unite. The One Sith went into hiding and only re-emerged in the last century. The flash-flame that was the new One Sith burned the Core to the ground and destroyed the Status Quo before they fell under their own weight and the insistent hammering of the Galactic Alliance. When Coruscant fell, the One Sith retreated, leaving ash in their wake. The Holocron of Darth Krayt had played a vital role in bringing the One Sith back, but in the flash-flame of the Galactic War it was lost-

Until it was re-discovered on Coruscant by Darth Ophidia during the fall of the Galactic Alliance.

Before we get into the meat of the submission, RPJs have to do their Canon Item magic.
Them's the rules.

Dang, now I've already forgotten all I was gonna say. Welp, approve—
Nah, j/k. There's a couple things I'll need you to explain before I can stamp this. :p

Namely, the massive discrepancy in holocron content from the OG wookieepedia article, to the previous submission, to yours.

So the OG holocron only has a short speech by Krayt. Not very interesting, so obviously the first person to submit it added a couple things:
  • A detailed account of the Jedi of the Clone Wars and the eventual purge.
  • Biography of Darth Krayt.
  • Explanations on the original One Sith, their beliefs.
  • Instruction and lessons in Telekinesis
  • Instruction and lessons in the use of Force Lightning
  • Instruction and lessons on Niman and Jar'kai lightsaber combat
  • Instruction on Tutaminis
Now here's what you have:

Jar-Kai (To complete mastery)
Force Lightning

Interpreting Force Visions Resisting Influence (Resisting mind tricks and domination)
Life-Prolonging Sith Magics
Force Illusions
Mind Walk
Force Drain
Shatterpoint
Dark Transfer
How to create Sith Troopers
You've added a bunch of very powerful abilities on the top of those already present previously (and made sure those are now taught to a very high degree).

As it currently stands, the weaknesses simply don't counterbalance the laundry list of rare and powerful abilities this contains.
  1. I would like you to remove two of the Force powers you've added since the previous iteration of this submission;
  2. and add another significant weakness to this submission that is neither situational nor fluff.
 
Success or Death.

Removed Shatterpoint and Force Drain, added weakness:
  • Fragile Construction: The holocron's crystalline interior is very delicate, and it is easily destroyed or disrupted. Do not drop it; do not hit it with a rock, and do not expose it to extreme heat.
Is that satisfactory?
