Season 2 Episode 208: The Burning Plains
Original Airdate: January 24, 2006
Staring Ashla, Heugo, and Vance Featuring Gosclaug, Grenk

The group decides to try to track Marak, heading back to the bar they locate an individual that seems to know something, after a bit of persuasion they discover that Marak had been in town yesterday, but something or someone had made him leave town late last night breaking the Quarantine. From the description Marak seems to be the Force Sensitive being that Vance had seen in the bar the day before. Heading back to the ship they gather supplies, and using the info from the Nikto in the bar they use the sensors on the ship to try to locate where he might of gone, all they know is he was headed across the Burning Plains towards the mountains. Using that as a guide and spending a better part of the day tying systems together through a phenomenal rigging of the ships sensors and tying into the orbital array and even Isbek Station, Heugo is able to detect a faint power signature coming from the Mountain in the direction Marak was headed. Down loading the info of the area and the surrounding countryside onto a data disc they have a route to take. They plan on leaving the next day, so they load up the skiff, and Ashla tunes up one of the remaining swoop bikes and they plan to head out. However Vance, Gosc, Heugo, and Grenk (the guide) all become very sick, the plague has struck the group, and begin to decimate the Jawas as well.

Through the Force Ashla and Gosclaug are able to alleviate some of the symptoms, but they can’t remove the disease, T6 puts in an urgent call requesting the return of Master M’ros the Jedi Healer that had gone with Kyzera, and Rochmar to brief the Council on the progress the group had made. While Heugo, Gosclaug and Vance rest to try to fight the infection, Ashla rounds up the known to be infected Jawa and pulls out of storage a few of the remaining stasis pods that the Sith had used to smuggle themselves on board the day Ashla, Ix, and Garet’s lives changed almost 2 years ago, when the Cpt. Bay-al was killed and the Sith stole the Navi-comp sparking everything, Ashla packs as many of the Jawa into the pods as possible to keep them from getting worse while they wait for M’ros. They decide to gamble and head out not wanting to loose Marak’s trail even though it may expose countless Nikto to the plague…

They head to the check point, and get past the guards through a little persuasion, and head off, it will be a two day journey, the decided to avoid any of the settlements hoping not to spread any lingering infection. So they speed through the wastes, hoping to find the Cult’s Hide out, Marak is likely all ready arrived if the mountains are his final destination…




Luckily they encounter no sandstorms on the Burning Plain, just a hapless Spine Dragon, and a Tusk Beast. Two of the three remaining species of animal life in the area, there are so few other creatures left in the desolate wastes of Kintan that they will attack anything they come across looking for food, Sentient creatures included, the spine dragon is dispatched, and Ashla later after hearing the plight and condition of the Wildlife finds away around the Tusk beast with out killing it.

However the Kintan Strider that they encounter shows the tenaciousness that they are known for and stalks them all through the day and into the night. Attacking them as they emerge from some animal’s lair, (perhaps the Striders). Ashla ends up rendering it unable to attack, and Grenk and Gaus confer that if left alone the healing powers of the Strider may actually make Ashal’s wounds a few days annoyance and not the death sentence it would for any other creature. (Unknown to the group Grenk makes a note of the location to let Chubbra know where a Strider can be obtained with ease to be sold off planet.) Now in the very mountain Range that Marak was headed, they know the power source is close by, and Heugo on the sensors finds three cave openings that are promising. They rest a bit as they try to through of the symptoms of the Plague before they head in.

Season 2 Episode 209: Entering the Caves
Original Airdate: February 7, 2006
Staring Ashla, Heugo, and Vance Featuring Gosclaug, Grenk

Having rested the night outside the caves they investigate the three openings that present themselves, two connect up to each other in a some what long loop, and the third seems more promising. Heading into it they first encounter an alarm that none of them notices, triggered by a sensor at the end of the passageway. From this panel there is a control to turn off what they encounter next, a gun emplacement, that fires on Vance and Ashla.


After Ashla slices up the guns with her lightsabers, they move on, Ashla and Vance being in the front set off a trap, a series of force fields, similar to the mag shields that protect hanger bays and keep in the atmo. Into that confined space a deadly gas is pumped into the area, Vance is poisoned some but they both are able to get their breath masks on before breathing becomes to difficult.



They spend the next hour trying to get past the fields. Ashla thinks about cutting into the wall of what looks like a bunker, but realizes it is also protected by a force field. They guess that animals or unwary Niktos that wander in die of the gas and that this setup is protecting something, what they are looking for perhaps.
After a while Huego scrounges up some equipment, power packs, and the like from the gun and their gear and rigs a small explosive charge, near where they think the field is being emitted from. And blows a hole in the wall knocking out the emitter and taking down the field on their side. They all head out, and regroup at the speeder. Vance is given some medical treatment. And Huego spends a few hours making some more explosives from the fuel cells and other items on hand.

They head back in and come across a section of the floor that the force sensitives in the group get bad feelings off of. As they work their way through the area they come to another computer control cluster. They bring in Huego, by levitating him over the odd floor, and he discovers that the floor mined. The computer bank controls the force field and gas trap as well as the mines, they spend the next 30 minutes or so disarming and collecting up the mines. Then head further into the caves, eventually they reach a junction, where Vance in the lead, stumbles into a pit trap he falls to the bottom, and lands hard. Using his grapple launcher he begins to climb out, but the trap begins to close, Ashla acting quickly slashes away one of the doors, giving Vance an Escape route. Vance struggles a bit, and in the end when he gets near the top and almost slips again Gosclaug lifts him out with the force. Further down the corridor there is another control panel that looks like it controls the trap as an opening mechanism and to show when the trap has been set off.

Season 2 Episode 210: Cult of M'dweshuu
Original Airdate: February 14, 2006
Staring Ashla, Heugo, and Vance Featuring Gosclaug, Grenk

The group leaves the caverns behind and heads into an area of finished stone, the ancient stone work the remnants of an old hiding place of the Cult of M'dweshuu.


But the side passage is blocked off by a force field.



Heading further down the passageway they hope to find a way beyond the force field and gain entry into the Cult of M'dweshuu’s hide out. They creep into a very dimly lit cavernous space that seems to contain a few speeders and a space worthy craft. As they head across the area Heugo and Ashla (using night vision goggles) see some sort of small remote. As Vance gets to far into the area the droid attacks him, but he fires off a blast from his trusty blaster and finishes it off.


As they search around the area, Ashla hears the sounds of muffled cursing and the banging of equipment from behind the only door off the hanger bay. Heugo gathers up the parts of the droid, Ashla disables the Space ship, Gos guards the door, and Vance heads down to explore the rest of the caves. Then they all get together Heugo hangs back as Ashla slashes open the locked door, and finally enter into the small back room. While Ashla interrogates the mechanic, Vance pilfers through the boxes finding some blasters, and a dull gray metal, he pockets the small bars, as Ashla finds out that yes this the location of the Order of M'dweshuu (the mechanic takes offense to the reference of it being called a Cult ), and some other info. With some subtle force added suggestions she acquires his pass card to get past the force field. And they head back


Getting past the barrier they head down the corridor stopping at first the door on the left, which appears to be the mechanics quarters. Heugo slices into the computer and pulls down files on the routine breaking of the quarantine and the frequent trips that the group has making, Ashla suspects that the destinations and timing will coincide with outbreaks of the plague and that the Cult of M'dweshuu is responsible. Downloading the info the check the other room, and find it is a conference room there is a holo projector and many files on the Orders history, training regiments for the Morgukai warriors and the like. Heugo takes apart the Holo projector for parts, and they head to the turbo lift.



Both Vance and Ashla reach out with the force and get a sense of the area, and see the lift goes up to an upper floor. The swipe card does not work, and after Ashla tries her light saber she is suppressed to have her blade deactivated, and sees that the metal meshing underneath is largely unmarred by the blade. Corotosis, a metal resistant to the blade of a light saber and one that destabilizes the power matrix enough to shut it off for a time, the metal similar to that of the Sith Swords, but treated again to not only repel the Light saber but to negate it for a time. They think the metal that Vance has is a component in the final construction of material. Ashla tries to slice through the control bad, but nothing happens, in the Heugo is able to jury rig a new swipe bar from the other door, and using a card that they find in the Mechanics room they access the lift.

Arriving one floor up they enter a dark hallway, the architecture seems newer than the finished stone, but has an dark and sinister cast to it, the beasts that adorn the walls are things from dark legends of Kintan, and the guide is sure this is the location of the Cult, he backs out not wanting to go further, Ashla lets him go, commenting on the guides desire to report back to Chubbra.

The floor seems to make a square, but they are not certain because further travel beyond another set of lifts, one on each side of the passages, at two more compass points is blocked by Force Fields.


They head down a lift, and as they pass through the doors heading to what Ashla thinks is a medical bay and a place that may have a computer they are ambushed by cultists.




The battle is quickly over and after it Ashla and Heugo head into the medical bay.


Heugo slices into the computer and finds files on the plague how they synthesized the agent, means to spread it, a vaccination and the cure. Searching through the files Heugo locates a stock, and sets up making more, and downloads the details to transmit to T6 to start the medical facilities back in the cities to making more.
While Vance and Gos raid the Armory.


As they leave a small but fierce battle erupts in which Vance is wounded. Gos takes him back to the Med center and pops him in a Kolto tank. The party is down a man, and both Ashla and Gos are feeling exhausted they are having trouble contacting the force. The strain of the constant use wearing on them, and they fear the confrontation with Marak.

Season 2 Episode 211: Into the Shadows
Original Airdate: February 21, 2006
Staring Ashla, Heugo, and Vance Featuring Gosclaug, Marak
The heroes are hunkered down in the med lab, Vance is floating in a kolto tank, Ashla and Heugo set about busting the lights in the hall, and trying to create an early alarm system. After that is done Gos and Ashla rest and meditate to renew their force connection as they wait for the lab equipment to synthesis some of the antidote. Heugo locks down the door and spends some time working on the remote he found. As they rest off in other parts of the compound a Nikto notices them on the monitor, he informs his superior, and they decided on a course of action in a brief meeting. They will flood the chamber with a knockout gas, the same one they use in the tunnels, and then storm the med lab. As they send some one over to investigate they find the broken lights and glass in the corridor. They clean it up and Kored comes in chosen to lead the squad of warriors to face them.
The Nikto clear out the hallway, and move towards the door, they lower the jamming field to coordinate attacks, and start flooding the med lab with the gas.



Heugo scrambles for a breath mask, as Gos and Ashla don theirs, and use the force to see who is outside the door. There is a squad of Nikto, who look like they are ready to storm the room. Vance pulls himself out of the vat while Heugo scrambles to find a breath mask and they prepare for the onslaught. However it is a long time in coming. Heugo has locked the door down and the Morgukai can’t get in, as Ashla tries to pull the guns out of their hands it is partly successful, which forces a few of them back.
Now the only being outside is a force user, and by the looks of it a power full force user, calling on the force he rips the door open.



A fight ensues as he goes bar-handed against Ashla’s lightsaber, brazenly entering the room to fight them all. Ashla is a little worried as the two of them fight for a few moments unable to strike the other. Vance, and Gos use their ranged weapons to attack the rest of the grunts, fighting around Ashla and Kored. Eventually Kored and the other Morgukai are defeated, but it has again taxed the group, and they still want to wait for the remaining 3 hours to get the vaccine.





Vance pockets some crystals as they search Kored, as Ashla and Heugo set some traps in the hall he shows it to Gos. Gos reacts violently towards the crystals saying they are strong in the force, but used for dark purposes and smashes the crystal disliking what they were and stood for. During this Ashla and Heugo try to bluff the Nikto into thinking they have blown them selves up, to buy the last three hours. Ashla and Gos meditate while Heugo works on repairing the droid.
When Kored and the warriors do not answer, Bok and Marak the remaining leaders of the Cult and Warriors discuss the situation. They watch the holo-feed and see a Jedi and companions invading their base, and fight off and kill Kored as well as the other warriors, then retreat to the med lab, disrupting their plans. If Jedi are here, Chubbra cannot be far behind, the Jedi and the Chubbra clan have tried to wipe out the M'dweshuu before, Chubbra hates the M'dweshuu for they calling the clans power, the Jedi disapprove of the M'dweshuu and the Morgukai. They have clashed before, the Jedi have come close to whipping out both groups more than once. Bok and Marak agree the order must survive. They make one final transmission then begin to shut the base down ready to abandon it and slide back into the shadows of Kintan, waiting for a more opportune time, the remaining warriors take copies of the teachings and religious texts and scatter fleeing on foot, or in speeders. Bok takes his most trusted students and descends into the inner complex, while Marak stands guard above the entryway, preparing to face the Jedi.
Three hours pass and the vaccine is ready, Vance hops out of the kolto and the four head for the broken turbo lift, as they climb, Gos and Ashla feel a presence above. Cautiously exiting they see Marak, waiting.



For the past few hours as darkness descends on the planet and the order, Marak has stood at the ready, prepared to give his life to stop the Jedi from advancing, but he now knows the base is empty he and the Jedi and followers are all that remains. He will test himself against the Jedi, test the teachings of the Morgukai against the teachings of the Jedi, and test the skills, training and equipment of the Morgukai against those of the loathsome Jedi Order. Standing silent in contemplation as Ashla and the rest emerge Marak motions Ashla forward as an ominous rumble descends upon the complex. Dust falls from the ceiling those in the lower passage see ceiling tiles, and bits of rock fall as the side of the mountain is slammed by turbo laser fire. The Hutt Patrol ships have mobilized and attacked after receiving Grenk's signal some 30 minutes ago and have pinpointed the location they have launched an attack to wipe out the compound.

Ashla goes with Marak, giving the others a chance to get out, or get more intel, Vance chooses to go with her, and so Gos and Huego head for the last section to quickly look around.

Season 2 Episode 212 - Marak
Original Airdate: February 28, 2006
Staring Ashla, Heugo, and Vance Featuring Gosclaug, Marak

Vance, Ashla and Marak head into the revered ancient temple of M’s, the alter of the bloody cult faces towards the location of the Nebula, and on it rests the blood stains of many past Nikto, and other species, however today there rests on it four of the pale blue crystals, like where on Kored. The pews have been pushed aside to make room for a battle as Marak faces off against the Jedi. However Vance complicates matters, to Marak the Jedi has no honor, she brings with her, an ally she breaks the honor code of the duel making a one on one fight against two traditions and ideologies, a private matter into an honor less gathering, she has brought aid. For him the tenor of the fight has changed, it confirms his distrust and hatred of the Jedi. They begin battle; a grim smile presses his lips the Jedi is in for a few surprises.





Meanwhile as Heugo and Gos head into the last section to quickly check it out, the bombardment continues, but being deeper in the mountainside they are less affected. The head through the darkened corridors, quickly taking stock of the area, and finding five doors, two locked, two opened, and one unchecked. Behind one of the locked doors Gos notices a force presence a strong force presence.

Back in the temple the two warriors face off in a whirling display of skill and weapons, the Morgukai electro staff versus the twin light sabers of a Jedi. Marak is distracted by Vance, who using his blaster is shooting up the crystals, Marak maneuvers to place himself between Vance and the alter, while continuing to duel Ashla. Neither of the combatants landing a significant blow for a time, until Ashla cuts into Marak, wounding him, but in the processes is shocked as her blade dies, just like the it did at the entrance to the complex. Marak has a grim determination in his eyes he is wounded, but the Jedi has lost a blade, which will be out for a few moments. Reaching back to the alter he grabs one of the last remaining crystals, and activates it filling with the force, and using it to heal himself, he turns back to Ashla, again they circle and parrying and attacking each other, Ashla’s blades going on and off as they strike the staff or armor, until with no active sabers she tumbles back out of his area, as Vance shoots the last crystal, Marak enraged draws a blaster and shoots Vance, forcing the dishonorable Jedi to deal with her companion or face him. As Ashla draws a normal sword Vance crumples to the ground all ready wounded from the last fight, he begins to bleed out. Marak backs towards the exit, keeping his staff at the ready and a blaster out as well.


Searching through the workshop Heugo and Gos grab some tools, some maybe needed to repair the fighter, and other odds an ends, Gos coming across a disturbing item a weapon constructed from the crystals that could possibly used like them to drain the force from beings, he takes it as evidence to study and show Ashla, as Heugo runs back toward the first set of rooms, knowing from his upbringing in the caverns of Sullust and their underground history that the farthest room should connect to the speeder bay they were in before. With Gos’ aid, ripping the door off, he stumbles into the computer room, carefully maneuvers around and sets a charge trying to break into the bay. Setting a timer, he and Gos run back as the charge counts down.




Vance is lying on the floor bleeding, Marak is by the exit and Ashla only has a common sword to face him with, the normally dull rumble of the turbo fire is replaced by a deafening explosion as Heugo’s charge goes off, debris falls into the temple, Marak could press the advantage, but with all of the damage the area has sustained, and that new explosion he isn’t sure he can get out let alone of Bok made it out, and the Jedi has hurt him once… the survival of the order and himself takes over, he flees, from view. Gos and Huego examine the wreckage in the room, dirt, stones, wall material litters the room and the corridor, as another powerful blast causes more to fall… Heugo thinks he sees an opening… but he isn’t sure…
