    Guardian's Watch

    It is a time for reflection. The Guardians of Light, from their Temple on Saridona Prime, have decided to send an expedition to a nearby system for personal contemplation. Their destination is the planet Ivaldi, in the Ermina system, a habitable world rich with wildlife, but no sentient life forms. There, the small group of Jedi will study their connection to the Living Force, away from all interference and distraction...

    --------

    "Ten minutes to launch," the pilot announced to the robe-clad group before returning to the shuttle.

    A grinning Mirialan, almost bouncing from her excitement, was the first to speak. "Let's go everyone! Time for some vacation!" She scooped up her simple pack, before examining the rest of their group. A mix of Jedi Knights and Padawans had assembled, volunteering-- or in some cases, "volunteered" by their masters-- for the week-long trip. Few were energetic at this pre-dawn hour, drinking caf and rubbing eyes to stay awake.

    "It's not a vacation," a glum Padawan insisted, sorting his pack on the hangar deck. "Vacations would have refreshers." A few chuckles and nods were elicited from the Jedi around him.

    Nearby, a Knight argued with the protocol droid checking each of the expedition members before they departed. "I'm taking my lightsaber, you useless piece of machinery."

    "I have been instructed to gather all non-essential technology from those travelling to Ivaldi." The droid, emotionless in the face of the Knight's frustration, kept repeating the same phrase as each of them passed by to board the shuttle. "Please deposit all weapons and technology in the bin for safe-keeping."

    The Knight threw his hands up and relented, dropping his pair of blades into the bin. "Thank you, enjoy your trip to Ivaldi." The Mirialan woman approached, beginning the droid's cycle again. "Please deposit all-"

    She placed her dual-bladed lightsaber into the bin with a flourish. "The rest is in my quarters. Except this." She waved her left hand, an obviously mechanical prosthesis, in front of the droid's face.

    "Prosthetics and other technology required for basic individual survival have been deemed essential and are permitted." The droid's voice remained a monotone, and the other Jedi began to gather in a line to drop off any last-minute tech. "Enjoy your trip to Ivaldi. Please deposit all weapons and technology in the bin for safe-keeping."

    Shouldering her pack, the Mirialan hopped on board the shuttle, smiling at the frustrated Knight. "Hey, we've got the Force, who needs lightsabers? It'll be fun."

    He shook his head slowly. "I don't know, I've got a bad feeling about this."

    --------

    OOC

    This is a closed RPG for Guardians of Light (EUC fanclub) members. As a one-shot, it's going to be a single adventure that will hopefully go for a couple months through the summer season. I haven't GMed in a while, so this may be a bit rusty but I'm hoping it will be fun.

    --------

    Basic info

    A group of Guardians will be heading out on a week-long trip for contemplation and study on an untouched planet. Who knows what could happen?

    All characters must be Jedi within the Guardians' order, though how well you know each other is up to you. Everyone is kitted out with simple, practical robes (customisation welcome based on each character's taste) and carrying their own packs of gear. Gear would include bedrolls, changes of clothing, and other "camping essentials"-- up to you. Food, water, and basic medical supplies are already on the shuttle for transport to the planet, meant to be shared between everyone. If anyone would like to attempt to sneak a piece of "non-essential technology" with them, or would like to know what is considered essential and non-essential, please let me know.

    Ivaldi is a short hyperspace jump from Saridona Prime. Your characters would be aware that they are going to be camping in a moderately warm part of the planet (approx. 25*C, 75*F), with relatively high humidity and frequent rainstorms. Wildlife on that part of the planet is known to be mostly active during the daytime, and tends to stay away from sentient beings.

    Any questions can be sent via PM or to the Guardians of Light main thread.

    Approved by me

    Name: Liuna Iotasi
    Species: Mirialan
    Gender: Female
    Age: 26
    Jedi Rank: Jedi Knight (Sentinel)

    Personality: Liuna has the nature of someone with an outgoing personality who has been forced to keep a low profile and has taken on some traits of the introverted. While she naturally prefers working with others, she's spent most of her time as a Jedi on her own, with only her astromech as a regular companion. Thus she is often restless, wanting to speak her mind to someone she trusts but finding herself coming up short. However, when scouting her next quarry, she is anything but restless, often getting caught up in the thrill of the hunt but rarely so distracted that she gives herself away. Despite the grey nature of her morality and the way she cloaks herself in shadows to complete her task, Liuna can be very honest and friendly, even bubbly, especially when among her friends and allies.
    Strengths/Weaknesses: Has picked up slicing skills and minor medical tricks, not particularly diplomatic, adept scout and with stealth on foot, strong combat skills in one-on-one duels or against blaster fire, less so against large numbers of enemies and untested against Sith, cybernetic left hand and forearm are naturally stronger than her real hand but is susceptible to some anti-droid defenses, out of her element in nature rather than in cities.
    Force Strengths/Weaknesses: Acrobatics, lightsaber combat, and danger sense are the keys to survival in her line of work; however she lacks in the spiritual side of the Force, such as meditation and connecting to the Living Force.

    Appearance: Liuna's long black hair is often unkempt and rarely tied up, occasionally with small braids to keep it just out of her face. The tattoos on her face, common for Mirialans, frame her grey-blue eyes from below and above and her lips are a naturally dark shade against her yellow-green skin.
    Height: 5'6
    Skin colour: Yellow-green
    Hair colour: Black
    Eye colour: Grey-blue
    [​IMG]

    Short Biography: Raised into the Guardians of Light, Liuna was always an excitable youngling, having to quite literally be dragged out of trouble more often than not. Her Masters struggled to teach her to connect to her spiritual side, while she'd rather be off learning lightsaber combat. After becoming a Knight, Liuna set off into the galaxy to right wrongs in the darkest corners, taking down gangs and hunting murderers. This mission led to the loss of her left arm, but she gained valuable lessons despite that, and became a stealthy, dangerous fighter. Eventually, she returned to Saridona Prime, to train and reconnect with the Jedi.

    Important gear: Bedroll, a single short durasteel blade.

    Name: Jo Sodi
    Species: Kage
    Gender: Male
    Age: 27
    Jedi Rank: Knight

    Personality: Determined, forward. At least that is how he views himself. For his fellow Jedi he is open, straightforward and generally without a good filter as he sees them as family whether he has gotten to know them yet or not. With strangers he often is silent, hard, andputs them after his family but unless told not to will still tell them the truth at least. Studying under Master Trevalus has instilled a strong sense of bare honesty and order. One takes care of family, then self, then others. It is the proper protocol for survival, for in a good family, everyone is doing the same.
    Strengths/Weaknesses:Wilderness survivalist, basic medical, adept at stealth and mixed melee combat. Feelsvery uncomfortable and sometimes lost in large cities, is more comfortable in the temple or small village. Analytical mind, likes to think something through first and then stays the course of the decision from that line of thought.
    Force Strengths/Weaknesses: Strong in Telekinesis, Strong Body techniques; Weak in area of Telepathy

    Short Biography:
    Born on Quarzite as the youngest of two children he had a bit of a, well a rough childhood. When your species has been locked in a battle for survival with a more technologically advanced racethat likes to eat you as a delicacy tends to cause a very nomadic and resistance basedlife style that does not leave much room for a true childhood. It is the basis formuch of his survivalist skills and sometimes doomsdayplanning.

    He traveled to the Zeison Sha on Yanibar, but although he finally was able to receive some instruction and begin to learn the truth, after just a few short years he left. He found the Guardians of Light where he was apprenticed to Master Hochner Trevalus and he was trained from a Padawan and eventually unto Knighthood. Stepping forward to the role of a Sentinel was his felt calling, bringing all he had learned beyond the organizations and his childhood in the shadows,to bring light to them. To drag the secrets of the vile and the wicked into the light. That is his greatest hope to do someday.

    Important gear: Foil bivouacbag, food cubes, water filtration kit, plasma disc, air filtration mask, and multitool

    Registered:

    GM Approved!

    Name: Kev-Mas Colcha III

    Species: Thyrsian/Echani hybrid (75% Thyrsian, 25% Echani)

    Gender: Male

    Age: 16 galactic standard years

    Jedi Rank: Padawan

    Personality: Stalwart, resolute, compassionate, analytical, judicious, prudent

    Strengths/Weaknesses: His training as a Sun Guard has given him excellent tactical knowledge and leadership skills. However, he is a very intense and focused individual and tends to get too wrapped up in whatever he’s involved with to come up with solutions for problems he hadn’t foreseen. Kev-Mas is an incredibly potent combatant, having already been formidable fighting force before he began his training as a Jedi. He is a master of Echani Martial Arts and can predict an enemy’s movements from the slightest hints in their bodylanguage. He has excellent endurance and tends to outlast his opponents. However, he isn’t very nimble or flexible, has a hard time avoiding blows he can’t see coming within a few seconds and does poorly in tight spaces.

    Force Strengths/Weaknesses: Kev-Mas is incredibly talented at Battle Precognition, which he uses in conjunction with Echani Martial Arts to enhance it even further. He’s also gifted with Force Meld and is able to use it in conjunction with his leadership skills and tactical knowledge to gain an edge on the battlefield. However, Kev-Mas is fairly weak with powers that physically enhance his attributes such as Force Body, as well as Force Healing.


    Appearance: His skin is a light ashen gray, with pitch black patches in recessed areas such as around his eyes. He has piercing silver eyes and long black hair. He is 2 meters tall and has a muscular build. He wears electrum coated sun guard armor with a red cape clasped to it with clasps bearing the Colcha family insignia. The armor shines a bright golden color that is in direct contrast with his rather monotone physical appearance.

    Height: 2 meters

    Skin colour: Light ashen gray, with pitch black patches in recessed areas such as around his eyes.

    Hair colour: Long black hair

    Eye colour: Piercing silver eyes


    Short Biography: Kev-Mas Colcha III was born to a long line of Sun Guard who ruled the planet of Thyrsus, dating back to the former Emperor’s Shadow Guard and Emperor’s Hand Kev-Mas I. Kev-Mas I’s son, Leonias Colcha was an Echani and the child of Echani freedom fighters who gave their lives in 4 ABY to liberate Eshan from Imperial control.


    Kev-Mas I adopted him from an orphanage on Eshan in 10 ABY after detecting his incredibly powerful force presence while he was in the area. He raised him as his own child and apprentice, and eventually with the help of an old friend took him to an ancient Rakatan relic on Belsavis known as the Mother Machine to alter his genetic code, essentially making him his biological son and heir.


    Kev-Mas completed his training in the Force, as well as training him to resurrect the Sun Guard of Thyrsus, which he did in 34 ABY, shortly after the destruction of Starkiller Base. From then on, the Colcha family ruled over Thyrsus, with the Sun Guard protecting the planet as well as anyone who came to them with the need, for a price of course, based not on how difficult the task was but rather how important it was - the more important, the cheaper.


    In the traditions of the Echani and Thyrsians, children grew up ratherquickly compared to other races. At the age of fourteen galactic standard years, they had a ceremonial rite of passage. The Echani called theirs the Telcta Tea Ceremony, and theThyrsians, like Kev-Mas (though he had mixed Echani and Thyrsian blood, he was raised on Thyrsus as a Thyrsian) called theirs the SóltusRites, named from the Thyrsian word for Sunrise.


    Kev-Mas’ Sóltus Rites were two years ago, in 154 ABY. The day after the Sóltus Rites a Thyrsian is sent offworld for a vacation to indulge in their last bout of youthful pampering before returning and assuming adult responsibilities. Kev-Mas wasenjoying a nice vacation on the resort world of Pantolomin when tragedy struck. He received an urgent message from his parents asking him not to return home because Thyrsus had been attacked by the Sith and the battle was all but lost.


    Then shortly after, he felt a crushing pain in the Force, as he felt the death of his parents. Much too devastated to continue his vacation as if nothing happened, he left Pantolomin and began wandering the spacelanes. In order to make a living he occasionally sold his services as a mercenary to the highest bidder, and in the current moment he was on the job, hired to guard a supply depot.


    Eventually, a Jedi was sent on a mission to investigate this supply depot, and that’s where Kev-Mas III’s story as a Jedi begun. He agreed to come with this Jedi to the Temple of Light on Saridona Prime, and eventually he became the Padawan of Master Hochner Trevalus.


    Important gear: glowrod, food rations, bedroll

    GM Update [face_party]

    IC: Liuna Iotasi
    En route to Ivaldi

    Liuna's forehead was glued to the shuttle's viewport as their shuttle departed, eagerly watching Saridona Prime grow smaller before their jump to hyperspace. The sense of excitement solidified, and though she kept quiet for the moment, the wide smile was indication enough. Maybe a week of contemplation and reconnecting to the Living Force had initially sounded boring and dull and the exact sort of thing she had spent her Padawan years trying to avoid, but something told her it wasn't going to be as quiet as the Masters had described.

    Her spot staring out at the viewport left in her in a position to eavesdrop on the other ten Jedi on the shuttle. They'd formed three loose groups, the Masters, the Knights, and the Padawans, each with their own grievances and excitements about the trip. Eleven of them meant the shuttle was a little cramped, but that just made it easier for Liuna to overhear them all.

    Closest to her were three of the other Knights-- Jo Sodi, Vanora Cinali, and Vyn Odonar. Vyn, still annoyed from before, was regaling the other two with complaints and stories of why a Jedi should never be without their lightsaber, without giving either of them an opening to respond.

    "--so then I cut the blaster in half, took a few fingers with it, and he surrendered, quick as that." Vyn's tone darkened, but left no moment for anyone to cut in. "And if I hadn't had my lightsabers I probably wouldn't be here, because he had me at point blank range. If any trouble happens, we're going to be karked. I mean, whose idea was it to ban lightsabers? Vibroblades aren't nearly a good enough alternative, and we have Padawans here. None of them could handle a Sith, or a charging beast or whatever might be waiting for us." The Hapan finally took a breath, and looked to the other two for a response. "Well? What do you think?"

    On her other side, the three Padawans sat together, awkwardly avoiding talking to one another. Danos Wen still seemed nervous, checking his bag repeatedly, while Reshi Uto bounced in her seat, glancing periodically over at her Master, Tesh. Kev-Mas Colcha was stuck between the two, and she was a bit surprised to see him without his Master. Hoechner was so fond of grubs, and Ivaldi was sure to have quite a selection.

    "Are we there yet?" Reshi asked, unable to contain herself.

    "We haven't even jumped to hyperspace, Reshi." Danos stopped searching his bag long enough to roll his eyes at her. "It's going to be an hour, so just calm down."

    Reshi jumped up from her seat and planted her hands on her hips. "Well, they better hurry up because I have things to do! My Master gave me all these tasks and I only have a week! If I don't get them done she's going to make me clean the training room again and if she does that I'll just quit." Reshi dropped back into her seat with a sigh. "Master Tesh doesn't let me do anything fun. She wouldn't even let me go on this trip by myself."

    Danos shakes his head. "You're lucky, my Master insisted I go but then wouldn't come himself. I'm pretty sure he wants me to get eaten by something."

    Beyond the Padawans, the three Masters stood with Knight Sabindi Tesh. She was likely to be promoted soon herself, given her aptitude with training Padawans, so for the moment she kept near the other Masters. Liuna was surprised to see so many with them, but maybe Masters needed a break too. Ananta Chetan was well-known for his pilgrimages, so he'd be quite a help on this group trip; Adalia Tehanis probably just needed to get out of the Temple for a bit, and hopefully none of them would draw her ire and risk her infamous temper while they were stuck together; and while she hadn't yet met Tavrie Ubris Ornil-Nilim, the Master was certain to have her own quirks as well-- hopefully something to bridge the differences between the two other Masters.

    "I believe we need a plan before we arrive on Ivaldi, at least so the Padawans don't end up wandering off." Sabindi glanced over at the three Padawans. "Mine in particular. There are dangerous creatures on that planet, and I'm not sure they're entirely ready to face such things. Our presence--" she indicated the three Masters "--may keep the wildlife at bay, but I suggest we insist they stay with the group, or at least with another Knight. I've already given Reshi some tasks for when we land, so she will be helping to set up the camp. I suggest we have the other two join her."

    Liuna kept listening in as the stars stretched into the blur of hyperspace. An hour left and then the fun would really begin.

    IC: Kev-Mas Colcha III
    En route to Ivaldi

    Kev-Mas, while chronologically the same age as the other Padawans present, was mentally their senior by quite a bit and being paired with them felt like he was babysitting. He remained silent for the most part throughout the trip, choosing to save his mental energy for when he needed it the most. However, the current discussion seemed to be in dire need of his wisdom and with a sigh he provided his input.

    "I would focus on the present if I were you two. The more you worry about what has passed or what is still yet to come, the less prepared you are to deal with whatever happens. Feel, don't think."

    She'd been listening to the conversation with only half an ear as such, the rest of her attention was on the Padawan discussion. Why were they looking back and forward and all over the place? Here and now was their training. When she heard Kev speak she secretly smiled. This one had great potential, and wisdom beyond his years. She'd be keeping her eyes on him. She turned back to the group.

    "Clarification please? Is this just for fun or are we gonna be testing this lot?"
    her twang accent noticeably different to the others, more casual. "You know, just so I don't get slack and mess up."

    IC: Vanora Inali en route to Ivaldi

    Vanora was in a circle with a Hapan and Kage Knight. The Hapan was regaling them in monologue fashion about the pitfalls of not carrying lightsabers. Vanora had recently crafted her own and was still reveling in the novelty of having the blade that was an extension and implement of her will and skill.

    She did have to agree that a vibroblade would not stop a Rancor-style beastie nor a Sith. But how likely were they to encounter such where they were going anyhow?

    One of the Padawans, the one with striking silvery eyes put in:
    "I would focus on the present if I were you two. The more you worry about what has passed or what is still yet to come, the less prepared you are to deal with whatever happens. Feel, don't think."

    She smiled genuinely in gratitude at him. Thanks for shutting this guy up. She thought with a sardonic eye roll.

    IC: Jedi Master Tavrie Ubris Ornil-Nilim
    Enroute to Ivaldi

    Tavrie was seated next to Master Tehanis and she listened to Reshi and Danos talking aloud about their Masters. "You both remind this elderly Master of herself when she was your age, many, many millennia ago," Master Ceshi Gamme had often given her menial tasks and sent her on some so-called "vacations" to strengthen her connection to the Force on planets that were completely devoid of any sentient lifeforms.

    At the time, the young Neti Padawan thought that it was useless and not helping in any way in putting her onto the path to learning about the Force, new powers and lightsaber combat, but the Anzati was teaching her charge responsibility and strengthening Tavrie's connection to the Force, so she could use it to the fullest extent.

    Pre-Excursion

    Go, seriously, it would do you good.
    Definitely, and why not? You relish spending quiet time in the forest. The two Council members on my either sleeve wouldn’t leave it alone. Despite my repeated dismissals their persistence endured as we each sipped from steaming mugs of spiced tea. The secluded alcove near the Temple’s top provided privacy and a panoramic view of the planet after a long day.

    I smiled and shook my head as I nestled deeper into the comfy chair. Where, to Liuna’s summer camp for problem padawans? You both are well aware that I’m still trying to recover from that barrage of apprentices from two years ago, what makes you think I want to pack-up and meander off alone for a week with a group of them? Both Masters raised an eyebrow simultaneously at my words knowing that I was being facetious and continued to gaze back at me with deeper unconvinced stares.

    Tipping the mug back one final time before decisively placing it on the table before me I sighed heavily as I heard my self speak the words, When do we leave?

    _____________________________

    Waiting in the rear of the boarding queue I observed the passenger's packs being plundered one-by-one by one of our personality-less hangar droids. Finally, my turn came and I was momentarily tempted to lean forward and say in a whisper…Listen closely, my little metallic friend, I have it on good authority that Knight Vanora has smuggled her laser sword aboard. Please take whatever precautions necessary. Understood? But thankfully restrained myself at the last moment.

    Clarification please? Is this just for fun or are we gonna be testing this lot?...You know, just so I don't get slack and mess up. Hearing Master Tehanis' familiar thick accent echo through the shuttle I settled into a seat beside her stowing my sack underneath.

    Nodding at Addie's signature guilelessness, I tilted my head in her direction, Maybe...they are going to be testing us?

    IC: Jo Sodi, Kage Knight
    Boarding shuttle

    Now when you called by your Master after you have received the rank of Knight it often means you are in trouble or about to be so. At least that was what Sodi had experienced more than friendly chats, trouble normally taking the form of extra missions or tasks, and today had been no exception. He had been tasked to keep an eye on his Masters newest Padawan, but without looking like he was keeping an eye on him. Kind of made the original visit of going on a trip to a remote world to find centering and balance, which sounded like a nice vacation, into something a little bit more. Still when then droid had stated the same message again for a second time as he stood there after putting his lightsaber in the tray he had shrugged.

    "Please deposit all weapons and technology in the bin for safe-keeping." the droid repeated. It's photoreceptors blinking as it looked down his personage.

    With a heavy sigh he deposited his blaster in the bin. Only for another round of "Please deposit all weapons and technology in the bin for safe-keeping." Groaning at the pointed look he removed his electro-short sword off his opposite leg and added it to the bin. The droid blinked at him a couple of times as he stood there with his arms out practically inviting a pat down. Even turning and lifting his robe to show he had complied and had no other weapons on him.

    Turning it's head as it secured his bin below to the next in line the droid had repeated its mantra "Please deposit all weapons and technology in the bin for safe-keeping."

    Reaching down he patted Sheet on the head as they continued onto the shuttle. He could still feel his plasma disc safely inside his pet. Somethings you simply needed to survive whether others understood it or not.

    ****

    Shuttle Flight, Departing Saridona Prime

    The flight itself had degraded somewhat as soon as the Hapan Knight had boarded. Which is to say it became like any commercial crammed shuttle flight he had taken, in that he either was going to be squeezed to a side by the pressure of the overly large passenger with bad hygiene or stuck sitting next to talker. The Hapan was definitely that, it was almost a force power to keep talking that long without letting anyone get a word in edgewise.

    Hearing the Padawan he was supposed to keep an eye say something about keeping minds on the present to the other two aboard he smiled gently even as he got a prompt from the Hapan, oh, now he wants to hear us? "I have been in fights for my life with nothing but an electro-knife, or a disc of solid metal. The weapon does not determine the success or failing in the fight but the Force and the mind of the combatants." With a nod he pulled out a small bottle and knelt to feed his pet a few drops from it.

    On board with her tormentor


    Adalia turned and looked at Ananta, his hazel eye sparkled with torment as per usual. Turning away slowly she began to pick imaginary fluff of her robes.
    "Or, maybe this is a massive plan by me to get you all to somewhere isolated?" she slowly turned to him with narrowed green eyes and added "To show you all just how close to the surface my darkness really is." She gave him a sarcastic smile as she returned to her fluff picking. It was a game they played, he'd torment, she'd bite, somehow it'd become a pattern but she knew it was all with good intentions in it execution. So he wanted to play she mused, lets play.

    Excursion


    Raising an eyebrow and doing a slow double take at her words, it became apparent that my Jedi comrade was quite under the weather but had maybe feigned feeling fine in order to come along and support the mission. Perhaps so much so that her senses were a bit clouded by her congestion. As I placed the back of my hand to her forehead to gauge her temperature I watched further as she discreetly sneezed and wiped her nose. Hmm...you're burning up.

    Noticing an empty seat near Knight lotasi I scooted toward the cockpit and greeted her cordially. Informing her of the situation I hoped we had a med kit on board or perhaps a good suggestion from the well-seasoned Jedi.

    As he put his hand on her forehead she gave him a confused look.

    "Hmm...you're burning up."

    Was she? She had a cold, but it was nothing. Snorting she rolled her eyes and smirked as he got up and moved to sit next to Knight Lotasi.
    "Oh well, good opportunity for me to catch a few winks" she muttered before leaning back, folding her arms and watching for a moment as Ananta spoke to Lotasi. Giving her head a shake she closed her eyes, and gently slipped into a meditative state to help her body fight the virus.

    IC: Vanora on board.

    Vanora watched with curiosity as Knight Sodi fed his pet and then her attention was caught by an exchange between the Masters in another part of the shuttle. She cast a glance in their direction in time to see Master Chetan check Master Tehanis as if for a fever.

    Vanora had interned in the Healing Center and had taken care of her own siblings and those of her neighbors when they were unwell to see the signs of something impending. Hope she can nip it before it gets too bad or that it's not contagious. And I hope there's more than one medkit ... she considered briefly and then made her way to the front where Knight Lotasi and Master Chetan were conversing.

    "Excuse me," Vanora said softly when there was a pause: "I do have some general healer training, although I hadn't entered the specialist residency yet. Is everything allright with Master Tehanis? If I could help, I'd be more than willing..."

    GM Update

    IC: Liuna Iotasi
    En route to Ivaldi

    After this shuttle ride, Liuna couldn't wait to get on-planet. An hour seemingly stretched into days as the Guardians all entertained themselves in the cramped confines, annoyances amplifying as they travelled.

    The young ones continued arguing even as Kev-Mas tried to re-focus their attention. "I would focus on the present if I were you two. The more you worry about what has passed or what is still yet to come, the less prepared you are to deal with whatever happens. Feel, don't think."

    "So I should focus on a bunch of stinky Masters? No thanks," Reshi announced, then turned her head away as she caught the eye of her Master. Someone was going to be in trouble when they landed. Danos, meanwhile, returned to sorting and resorting his pack, diligently checking more than he probably needed.

    "You both remind this elderly Master of herself when she was your age, many, many millennia ago," said Master Tavrie, and Reshi's face flushed darker. There was a Padawan seeing a lifetime of chores in her future; Liuna had to smile a bit to herself, reminded a lot of her own Padawan years. The number of chores she had to do to make up for running off, getting in trouble, breaking rules... It seemed there were more than a few troublemakers on this trip; at least it wouldn't be boring.

    Danos reached across and shoved Reshi. "Stop getting us in trouble!"

    "Hey! I'm not getting you in trouble, why are you complaining?"

    "Because they're going to blame all of us if you keep being rude to the Masters!"

    Their voices continued to raise as the two Padawans argued, while Master Ananta joined her at the front of the shuttle, bringing her up to date on an apparent illness within their group.

    "We're well-stocked with medical supplies if anyone needs them," she shrugged. "Maybe see if someone can take a look when we land. It is a little warm in here, might just be the shuttle."

    Nearby, the Knight Vyn had finally stopped long enough for the others to speak, giving Jo Sodi a chance to voice his own opinion. "I have been in fights for my life with nothing but an electro-knife, or a disc of solid metal. The weapon does not determine the success or failing in the fight but the Force and the mind of the combatants."

    Liuna nodded from where she was, agreeing with the Kage Knight. "Lightsabers are a tool like any other. They're not always the right one for the job. There's a whole galaxy's worth of weapons out there, and some of them are very useful. And very fun." She winked at the Hapan Knight, who seemed to be drawing up with annoyance at their responses.

    "And yet our lightsabers are our lives, how can we all willingly leave them behind, when they're each tied to us in the Force? Their power is our power." He shook his head, voice dark. "Say what you will, but when something goes wrong on this trip, we will all regret leaving our lightsabers behind."

    Sabindi raised her eyebrows at the two bantering Masters. So much for any sort of leadership on this venture. "Be my guest," she said to the young Knight Vanora. "It might be good for Master Tehanis to get checked over." Her head might need checking too... thoroughly.

    "This venture may not be a formal one, but Padawans need structure to proceed with their training. In fact, this entire group could do with some structure." Behind her, she could hear the Padawans, and glanced back, catching her Padawan's eye. Always acting out, she was. "I was hoping that you might have some thoughts on how to split the group for maximum efficiency, in order to set up the camp as quickly as possible so that the week's tasks may begin."

    Arrival on Ivaldi

    The shuttle set down smoothly, a testament to their pilot, and the doors opened to a beautiful, if humid, array of life. The world was almost glowing in the Force, so rich with natural life and unharmed by sentients. Liuna took a deep breath as she stepped off, ignoring for the moment the damp heat, and took in the mid-morning light on this part of the world.

    Then it was time to get to work.

    There were crates of supplies-- food, medical supplies, extra shelter-- to off-load, a camp and shelter to set up, and then their relaxing could begin. Though truly, she felt relaxed enough just getting off that shuttle after an hour of everyone trying to get on each others' nerves.

    "Yeah, I see them." A being lay on a ridge, watching a shuttle descend through macrobinoculars. "Looks like they're staying." A pause as the being listened to the comlink. "Tell the boss, we're going to have trouble." Through the binoculars, the being could see the first to step off the shuttle, a green humanoid in what were definitely Jedi robes. "It's Jedi."

    The shuttle landed safely and Tavrie looked out the window at the planet of Ivaldi. It was an absolutely gorgeous planet and she could not wait to step onto its soil and then spend the trip in deep meditation and connecting with the Force on a much deeper level than ever before.

    "Shall I help with unloading the crates?" the Neti asked, as she pulled on her backpack and secured the straps, before going to the ramp and breathing in the clean, fresh air. It was certainly going to be a welcome change from the meditation rooms at the temple for once.

    Arrival on Ivaldi

    Vanora disembarked along with the general exodus and watched as large crates were unloaded. The air was a bit humid, but it was fresh and smelled of lush vibrant gorwing things.
    This was going to be a great and relaxing time, Vanora thought with anticipation, as she took a position close enough to be tasked with any thing that needed doing but also not to get in anyone's way either.

    En route to Ivaldi

    It had seemed that his words of advice were completely ignored by Danos and Reshi, obviously having been distracted by intense emotions. Shaking his head, Kev-Mas reached out with the Force, forming a telepathic link to the two in an attempt to soothe and lull their minds.

    Not only would a couple of bickering padawans prove to be a danger to themselves, but potentially a danger to everyone else and Kev-Mas would not have that. Kev-Mas was particularly gifted in telepathic abilities and had a knack for much more complex techniques such as Battle Meditation and Force Meld. That being said this application was as simple as a mere cantrip to him, albeit more useful.

    “There is no emotion, there is peace.” was recited over the telepathic link, reminding the other padawans of the Jedi code.
    ------
    Arrival on Ivaldi

    Stepping out and feeling the humid heat, Kev-Mas formed a grimace out of slight irritation as he began to sweat under his armor. It was also hot on his home planet of Thyrsus, but it was a dry heat, as the planet was a volcanic desert. Needless to say, this wasn’t entirely familiar to him and he wasn’t too comfortable.

    “Once camp gets set up, I’ll need to remove my armor to air myself out and rest,” he thought to himself as he picked up one of the crates and begun carrying it, “But for now, work needs to be done.”

    On Board.


    Adalia needed sleep, she'd been restless the last few nights back on the temple with images, visions she'd not been able to consolidate. The slight jolt of the ship landing woke her and she noted to herself she felt marginally better. Sitting up she reached under the seat and retrieved her belongings, including her 'swag' as sleeping set up from her home world. Standing she swung her bag to one shoulder and the swag on the other, glancing around at the others as she did so. A couple of the Padawans seemed more excited than they probably should be, the words she heard as a Padawan herself came back to her. 'Adventure, excitement, a Jedi craves not these things'. She recalled Ancient Master Yoda had uttered those words long ago. The overwhelming feeling she'd had back on the temple in visions, still lurked in the back of her mind and the Padawan's excitement was feeding in it.

    Disembarking she saw @Ananta and made her way over to him.

    "Sorry about earlier, there's..........a lot on my mind and my sad attempt at sarcastic humour never seems to work on you." She smiled and winked. "I am concerned at their attitude to this, Kev-Mas seems to be the only with any amount of seriousness in his mind." She looked around, she still felt.....strange.
