FOR CONSITOR SATO
Mission Pack Overview: Jedi Knight Isen Ramm visited the Jedi Masters at Pilgrim's Point in an effort to learn what is commonly known as "plant surge" by most of the Jedi. This is the ability to bend the actions of plants to the Force user's will and provide for immensely accelerated growth. The applications for food sourcing, hedging, and regrowth after disasters is evident, but given the right amount of skill, there is also great martial application for the skill as well. Under the a trained Jedi's power, plants can wreak all kinds of havoc on a Jedi's foe, including grabbing, suffocating, and entrapments. While visiting Yuul Tik at Pilgrim's Point, Isen is persuaded to find Master Sabla-Mandibu's holocron which specializes in these techniques with wild flora.
The issue is not one of just retrieving the holocron, however. Like many holocrons, the cube requires a specific memory crystal to open as well as an electrostatic charge from a living shoot of a lightning tree. And of course, the three are not in the same locatioin. Master Tik did much of the investigative work, and after finding a personal ledger of a former Caretaker of First Knowledge, Tik has a verifiable lead on both the crystal and the holocron itself. If the Jedi can bring back the crystal, the cube, and a living shoot of a lightning tree, the knowledge of Master Mandibu will be available for the Jedi Order to learn and practice once more.
Thread 1: A Crystal Clear Undertaking - The memory crystal is believed to be in the hands of a pirate gang on the planet of Kessel that hunt freighters on the Pabol Sleheyron. The merry band got their hands on the crystal a few hundred years ago and now it is used as a pendant on a necklace. Whoever wears the necklace calls the shots. In fact, the pirates call themselves the "Crystal Corsairs," a practice that started shortly after their tradition of the leader wearing the crystal. Their base is found not far from a slaver camp and spice mines on the planet. Unfortunately, recon seems to indicate they are protected by the Pyke Syndicate on Kessel. Will need two or three willing Jedi to track down and confiscate the crystal that rightly belongs to the Jedi Order.

Thread 2: No Arbor-trary Trade - Trauba Vanan owns a nursery on Coruscant that specializes in strange and exotic plants and trees. He just so happens to have a juvenile lightning tree that would be perfect for opening Master Mandibu's holocron. He already informed Master Tik that it is priceless, and that it is not for sale. However, he may be willing to barter the tree for services rendered. What it is that he wants or needs done is unknown, but Master Tik has warned that he is a very, very strange and eccentric individual. It would be best for two Jedi to undertake this mission to help negotiate with Vanan and to possibly complete a side mission so that he would be willing to part with the lightning tree shoot.

Thread 3: The Trees Have Eyes - According to the ledger of Astaal Vilbum, Caretaker of First Knowledge during the days of the Galactic Republic, the holocron is either on a crashed cruiser somewhere on the Rooted Moon in the Hertzal System or in someone's possession nearby. The last time it was known to be in anyone's possession was aboard the High Republic's "Vanquisher Three" cruiser. However, it crashed to the moon's surface when a piece of debris struck it shortly after the Great Hyperspace Disaster event. Overhead photography no longer shows where the crashed cruiser is known to be. The massive cruiser is completely encompassed by unnatural plant growth. This led some to believe that either the holocron activated itself, or someone with the necessary components, Force ability, and knowledge, activated the holocron on the site of the crash at some point in history. It is a strange and worrisome development, and as such, two or three Jedi are suggested for this mission. Yuul Tik specifically asked Isen Ramm to be part of this leg of the campaign.
