One of the forest regions on Onderon now known as the Blood Forest

There seems to be some strange activity in the wooded areas on Onderon, reports of a Cult that worships the blood of Force Sensitive creatures and is strongly rooted within the Dark Side. The head of one of the leading monarch factions of the planet issued a call to the Jedi Order after suffering casualties with many of the scout groups sent in the area thinking that such a matter would be much more fit for the Jedi.

The group is consisting of devoted followers, cultist of a variety of species all loyal to their perverted cause and led by a figure called The Father that they all follow in reverence. A figure serving directly under The Father was reported to be a Force user by what little survivors were left and was referred to as The Priest. Most of the manpower of this assumed faction is armed with melee weapons the only ranged forms of offense noted so far being bowcasters. Reluctant to engage the Onderon military forces for a plethora of reasons the king reached out to the Order, afraid of the potential hidden powers of the cultists and their leader and afraid of a potential backing of the faction by the Sith themselves.

Description
1. Self DM/Ask - Dice - the group would meet and head out into the 'Blood Forest' of Onderon, going over their objectives, potential threats and tactics based on what little info they have of the enemy. This thread would include both exploration of the area as well as combat with the cultist forces that would most likely sense their presence in the area and engage them rather quickly.

2. Self DM/Ask - arriving further towards the center of the area they would find an old abandoned tomb like structure now occupied by the cult. This thread would reveal the Sith's involvement with the cult where the Sith Eternal had sent an acolyte to aid The Father and gauge the faction itself before a potential backing and merge with the Sith themselves. This thread would also determine the placement of the people in the next two threads - basically one group would engage in a battle with The Priest and the cultist forces while the other one would tried to advance further inside the tomb and face The Father but would be intercepted by the Sith acolyte.

Fight against the clock - this is an aspect that would be prevalent in the next two threads as Father is initiating a Dark Side ritual that has unknown consequences and the goal of the both groups would be to get to the man in time while the cultists and 'the bosses' would try to prevent that
3. Boss Fight - The Priest - as mentioned before a group determined by the outcomes of the previous thread would engage the cultist forces outside the tomb led by The Priest. I am unsure whether this thread should include dice since it would essentially be a boss fight but that would be agreed upon by the participants.

4. Boss Fight - Sith Acolyte - The other group would be facing the acolyte.

5. Main Boss - Based on the outcomes (or agreements of the participants) The Father's ritual would have either been a success as his forces were able to hold the strike team off - in which case they would be engaged in a combat scenario with an insanely amped Dark Side sorcerer - or the group gets there on time and breaks off the ritual.

NOTE
Though I have posted this in the Jedi Order faction characters from the Sector Ranger faction would also be welcomed to join in.

Definitely putting Fiach forward for 1 & 2. As for 3/4, I'm easy either way :)

I was hoping you'd get her on board! I'm putting in Weiss in this mission pack out of my two Jedi.

I'm interested in 1, 2 & 4 with @Maxims Tionson but I'm curious about threads 3, 4 & 5 - are they DMed? Dice? Self-DM?

I was unsure about how to go about with them so was hoping to get it figured out with the other members and what they'd like the most. Was thinking about them being a mix of self dm and dice (if that's even possible).

Also really hyped for Maximus being on board for this, we'd have a Jedi Master within our ranks @Nefieslab

I'm totally down to have @Nara Allam involved if there's still room. Seems like it could be a lot of fun!

@Frannykins87 No worries! There will be plenty of non force sensitive cultist wielding melee weapons and blasters for her to pew pew at :D

Feel free to say no, but if any spots need filling, my Matukai Jago could fill. Want to get him to know some Jedi peeps in his quest to rebuild the Matukai order and whatnot.

@Topher Ridge no problem whatsoever

Since Jago isn't a Jedi (right ?) he wouldn't be sent on a mission with the others by the council so just think of a way to implement him
Either have him be on Onderon and ask the king to assist the incoming group - which would land him in one of the freighters that are descended in the opening post
Or have him already doing some investigation on his own within the Blood Forest so the others would stumble upon him on the way
Orr something else entirely, whatever you feel like would work the best :D

@Topher Ridge
Feel free to include him anytime you want as of now. Weiss had just probed the area to sense 2-3 life forms returning to the 'camp' that he assumes are scouts going to inform the others. If you want you can have Jago already be in the forest (spying or hiding and investigating in some way) and have him feel the presence of the large group of Jedi that had just assembled and make his ways towards them

In regards to the overall mission pack and the current thread - I believe we should have the team advance to the temple where Hannibal and Max would engage the Sith Acolyte in the entrance hall of the temple while the rest of the group would fight The Priest and the cultists outside and try to keep them busy (initially ) for the masters to pass through. So the current thread should end somewhere around the time when the group 'splits up' and then the next two threads would be taking place - battle with the Priest and cultists and with the Acolyte respectively

@Topher Ridge @Mr. Teatime @Nefieslab @Reyn @Isen @Corbeau @Frannykins87 (sorry if I missed someone)
