Episode 3.07: Chapter 7: Chaos, Normal, and a Certain Point of View


Deep in the lost forests underneath Nar Shaddaa, it was the calm before the second storm.


The Bloodsmith Raiders’ cloning chamber was neutralized, and the heroes decided that Simon Tam was the best person to receive the medical and cloning data. Simon would make sense of it right away and do the right thing. Provided they could grab a ship and get high enough outside the natural noise and interference of Nar Shaddaa's technological morass of communications to get a signal through.


But would the signal be intercepted by the Hutts? If so, would they allow it through? Or would they stop it?


Then, as if someone had flipped a switch, the Bloodsmith Raiders that survived the battle in the warehouse are covered in ionic radiation. They collapse, no longer breathing.


All except for one.


In the center of the warehouse turned docking bay, the last Bloodsmith - Kal Holst - gasps in a panic for air, skin turning gray. Next to him, the last Forcebender monk named Talow kneels on one side of the human-cyborg, Sabine on the other. Both are concentrating on the young man.


Sabine supports Kal with one hand, while the other has attached a data connector from her left arm to the cybernetic data-port at the nape of his neck. Talow has both hands outstretched, concentrating, 'bending' the Force protectively around both Aw’akeen and human-cyborg.


Sabine explains the horrific news.


“It’s a kill switch virus in his cybernetics created by a rogue Mentat. The evil being even signed it. Someone named Almon D'Joy. I may get infected but I can't disconnect. If I do, this man will die.”


Meanwhile, two kilometers away, Jedi Knight So'Zen Al Saba along with his two Bonejacker allies are flying the stolen Bloodsmith Raider ship toward the second secret warehouse. The particular warehouse with the infectious, two story tall mega-fauna creatures from Tor Ceti destined to be turned loose on the unsuspecting world of Chalcedon.


The stakes couldn't be higher. If So'zen and his allies fail, then a world will fall. As the warehouse comes into view, So’zen sees his path through a Force-vision. The path ahead is narrow, dark, and has no room for mistakes. The Bloodsmith Raiders must be stopped. The Dark Side mentat Almon D’Joy must be stopped. The Force lays out this path clearly for himself and his friends…

… save Chalcedon and save the galaxy.



  • Will So'zen Al Saba and his Bonejacker allies stop the Bloodsmith Raiders from escaping with their deadly cargo?
  • Will Vanya, Davish, Sabine, and Aerena find a way to get the critical information off-world to warn their allies outside of Hutt Space?
  • Almon D'Joy has been three steps ahead, even plans within plans to try and cause the Jedi to kill each other by one falling to the Dark Side.

  •   ... did Almon D'Joy already plan for this? If so, are the heroes ready?

    Oh, I have such a bad feeling about this ...
