Thanks to everyone who responded to my last post, it was...insightful...oh yeah, helpful too. :p

Anyhoo, now what I guess I need are some adventure hooks. My basic plot (for right now anyways) deals with a rogue Arkanian Jedi who is undermining all of my NPC's efforts to twart the PCs (reasons are...complicated). The setting is Old Republic, about 3 years after The Phantom Menace. The plot as it is now (after two sessions) revolves around a stone relief of a raven that has been stolen from a planet named Neonosis. The bird is actually an ancient conduit for the massive force stream that permeates Neonosis. An unscrupulous First Contact Specialist stole the bird to sell on the black market. It has managed in the years since it's theft to make it's way to the senator of Bespin. The bird however is cursed, and it brings horrible luck to any that possess it. The senator didn't know that and "aquired" it for display. He now regrets what he has done, and has pawned it off to a hapless Rodian fence on Coruscant. The PCs intervened at the drop-off, and are now looking for the Rodian.
(Meanwhile on Neonosis: Crime and Vice have swallowed the once peaceful urban planet. It now seems to resemble all the worst aspects of the universe planet-wide. The bird, if returned to it's sacred spot will re-balance the flow of Force in the area and foster peace again.)

I have one PC (who missed the first two sessions, the schmuck) who I have set up as the being they must seek out for more info on the bird and just what the hell is going on.

that's all I got, if you can suggest anything else, it'd be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance...again.:D

Go watch "The Maltese Falcon"... right now... :D

Seriously, tho.. a couple of questions. Is this PC the Rodian fence himself or someone who know him? Do the PCs have possesion of The Item?

A few possibilites come to mind... Someone (or a Group of Someones) is after The Item. The Item (in addition to the "curse") may have Nefarious Powers that this person or group knows about or suspects (Think "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" and the Shankarra (sp?) Stones). Access to the Force stream is needed to combat a Big Icky on Neonosis.

Without more details, this is all that I can come up with from the top of my head...
