View Full Version : Planning for my next SW d20 session -- am I insane?

On the one hand, I feel like what I have in store could be killer, but on the other, I may be biting off more than I can chew...

Here's the story thus far:
Brakiss is back from the dead, and he's a Sith now. When the Shadow Academy went kaboom, Brakiss did die, but his spirit didn't pass on. Instead, he got snatched up by the spirit of a long-dead Sith Lord who wants a new body. Planning to use Brakiss', he led him to the Valley of the Jedi, where ol' Brak was reborn. Now here's the catch: while he was in the power, Brakiss saw a vision of the upcoming Yuuzhan Vong invasion. Feeling that Skywalker's Jedi were too weak to repel the invaders, he decided to rebuild the Shadow Academy and train students in the ways of the Dark Side, which he felt would be powerful enough to defeat the Vong. He soon realized that he couldn't train enough students in time, so he returned to the Valley and decided to repeat DeSaan's little trick (from Jedi Knight II for the PC) -- he began to create Reborn. Now he had an army. As for the Sith Lord, well, he's learned to be patient, so he's going to let Brakiss repel these invaders, and THEN take over his body. Less work that way. Now for the group: they're mainly Jedi, and one's a New Republic general. Thus far they've encountered Brakiss and escaped from his Shadow Academy, and they travelled to Rhommamool, where they met Nom Anor and one of their number (plus Mara Jade, natch) got infected with that pesky Yuuzhan Vong disease.

Now here's the fun part, what I have planned for the next session...
Brakiss is bringing his forces to bear on the Academy. He wants to try to get the Jedi to join him, but will no hesitate to slaughter them for their weakness if they refuse. So pretty much, I want to run a massive Jedi war on Yavin 4, while the general leads a group of commandos to the Shadow Academy itself and tries to destroy it. And as this wraps up, the group will get summoned to Sernpidal, where the Yuuzhan Vong invasion has begun.

So, am I mad, or what? Any ideas/suggestions?

That sounds like a very interesting campain you have worked on for your players. One thing kind of mirrors my campain though maybe this will be of help. Like you I have an academy of Dark Jedi, however not the shadow academy with Brakiss. After the demise of the Emperor in me campain The Lord High Inquisitor Set Malstra took over the Empire. One of the gifts of service that he was given by the Emperor before his demise was a World Ship. A planet the size of a small moon which has hyperspace capability. He had a trandoshan slaver ring capturing Jedi student prospects being taken to Yavin IV for training. Of course the Jedi on Yavin iV discovered the plan and mounted a raid on the planet to retake their students but now they must get ready for the fact that a world is about to drop out of hyperspace around Yavin IV and start transporting Dark Jedi and Elite Troopers down to take the academy and its students or destroy them. Good Luck with your campain and great idea.
