Who Are You?

The door opens easily and makes little noise. Though Master Kenobi has forbidden students to visit the tower you find yourself walking up the old stone steps. You have your reasons.

The Force tingles in the air around you. In the shadowy light of your glowbar you can make out footprints in the dust. Someone has been here before you.
At the top of the stairs you hesitate. A nightbird cries out somewhere in the darkness. Light flickers from underneath the door before you. Can you hear whispering? Is someone in there now?
You consider turning around and going back to bed, but something tugs at you...
You open the door and step into the tower room. It's very cold...

And empty. Decaying furniture lies scattered around the floor. Tattered pages of some mouldy book flutter half-heartedly in the wind.
Your first sensation is relief - how silly you were to be worried. Nothing here can hurt you, unless you have allergies.
From the window you can see the main Temple compound. The other Jedi are probably sleeping now.

Slowly the hairs on the back of your neck begin to rise. You feel a presence in the room. You turn from the window but see no one. An oppressive air hangs upon this place. A great sadness fills your heart.

As you move towards the door it slowly swings closed, as if pushed by the breeze. The power in your glowbar flickers for a moment and then goes out.
Darkness.

Who are you?

Neither, now. I am the face of death. I am shadow...
But you knew that already, didn't you?

Hmmmmmm, what can I offer to you, Shadow knight?
I know secrets the likes of which you living have never even dreamed. I have powers now that have not been mainfested in the Force in the past millenium.
All of this potential... and yet...

I am trapped here in this room. My spirit form cannot pass through the boundaries of this tower. What can you do for me? Free me. Help me to walk in the world of light and air once more.

It will require trust on your part, warrior, but know this. I am a Jedi, I never turned to the Sith. My honour is unimpugned.
Help me and I will reveal to you all the secrets of death and beyond...

That is well for i have never fellen to the sith either.. I am a shadow jedi.. unrestrained by dogmatic rules.. I can use either side at need..

"What do I need to do?" The ghost proceeds to explain about the force suppression device that kept him there..


Brandon spends the next & hours looking fot the device but finds nothing.. he gets annoyed and starts smashing down wardrobes.. from a wardrobe a small orb falls to the grounds.. it was inside the frame of the wardrobe..

Brandon picks up the small orb.. It pulses red then blue.. it is vibrating..

Master Durnago seems to knoaw what it is.. he looks very excited

You have found it, shadow jedi! Quickly, smash it! Release me from my imprisonment!

Brandon smiles, "All in good time, master ghost. I would like to discuss some things with you first..."

The air around the spectre begins to boil. You will release me now.
Brandon laughs, "Well, now that I have this, we can talk anytime. Perhaps I'll come back when you're in a better mood." He turns and walks toward the door.

You have miscalculated. The door swings shut with a bang. Somewhere in the walls bolts are thrown. I know every inch of this prison. I have spent several lifetimes here. Destroy the orb.

With a hiss Brandon's lightsaber springs to life. He strikes the door... but the blade destabilizes when it hits the strange black material. The wall is no better...

A special crystal lattice forms the alloy that makes up the tower. Remember, they used it for imprisoning jedi.
You can not escape. And now I grow weary of this...
Do you feel that? It is your heart beat slowing. It's almost calming isn't it? So much excitement a moment ago. Now, beat, beat, beat...beat..... ....beat.... .... ....beat....
I first leanred this trick one hundred years ago. It didn't have a large enough Force signature to be suppressed by the machines. I practised on insects and birds in the beginning...


"No!" Brandon tries to focus his rage, let is wash over him as a shield, but his heart continues to slow. Lightning flies from his fingertips, scorching the walls, his lightsaber cuts through the empty air that is Durnago.

Fool, I am a ghost, and a master. Did you think you could defeat me?
You had your chance for life, now truly I will show you the power of death!


Brandon's heart stops, blackness descends over his vision. He sways and drops to the floor of the tower. The last thing he heres is Durnago laughing.

Durnago goes into a trance, his life essence pours down over the unconscious shadow knight...

I LIVE!
