The dark side is calling you in Ghosts of Dathomir, an upcoming adventure supplement for the Star Wars™: Force and Destiny™ roleplaying game. When a mysterious and powerful artifact suddenly surfaces on Toydaria, you embark on a journey into the lawless Outer Rim. Along the way you’ll enter negotiations with a ruthless Hutt kajidic, experience relentless Force visions, and discover some of the darkest secrets of the galaxy.
This 96-page, beautifully illustrated book introduces locations throughout the Star Wars galaxy, a new and mysterious Force power, and many adversaries including Toydarian merchants, ruthless mercenaries, Hutt crime lords, and powerful wielders of the dark side of the Force. Designed to be used with the Force and Destiny roleplaying game, Ghosts of Dathomir can also easily be integrated into an Age of Rebellion™ or Edge of the Empire™ campaign.
With the Jedi Order abolished and the Jedi all but extinct, now is a dangerous time to be a Force user. Seeking the remnants of Jedi teachings and chasing the whispers of artifacts while avoiding Imperial persecution would be difficult enough, but young Force adepts have to contend with the temptation of the dark side. Ghosts of Dathomir places you on the hunt for a statue rumoured to have ties to the Force, ties so powerful that its discovery could lead you to a greater understanding of the Force… or to your annihilation.
The statue is called Tragic Hope, and it has popped up for auction on the Hutt-controlled world of Toydaria; of course, your party are not the only people interested in the artifact. A ruthless mercenary named Jerserra has left a trail of bodies throughout the Mid and Outer Rim territories as she builds up her crime network, and she seeks the statue with a fervor that suggests something personal is at stake. The Empire has their eyes on Jerserra, and Hutt spies are everywhere across Toydaria. Can you navigate the criminal underworld and escape unscathed to discover what ties this statue to the Force and learn how the dread world of Dathomir is involved?
Organised Crime in the Mid Rim
Your party will find themselves en route to Toydaria at the start of Ghosts of Dathomir, searching for an exotic items dealer named Walisi. But Walisi has gone missing, and so has Tragic Hope. Unfortunate yes, but hardly surprising; even the most legitimate of businesses have dealings with the criminal underworld in the Mid and Outer Rim, and Walisi is no exception. His ties to the Gorensla Hutt Kajidic ensure that you won't be alone in searching for him; you will have to be cautious to avoid involving yourself in the middle of long brewing conflicts between the Hutt crime families.
Tread too carefully, though, and Jerserra could slip away with the statue, and that’s not an outcome anyone wants to see.
The Dread World of Dathomir
By wielding the double-bladed lightsaber of the Empire's Inquisitorius Jedi hunters, Jerserra surely conjures up thoughts of the dark side, much like the barren and mysterious Dathomir. Rumoured to have once been populated by a group of unique Force users called the Nightsisters—neither Jedi nor Sith—Dathomir is now a mostly desolate planet, scarcely visited after the disaster at the Oteroan Zero-Twenty mining colony. What is it about Tragic Hope that will lead you to Dathomir? And can the rumours of ghostly apparitions around the abandoned mining colony be believed?
The Force Gets Darker
Star Wars: Force and Destiny introduces adventurers to both sides of the Force, to the Jedi and the Sith, but the reality is that the galaxy is much more complex. Delve into Ghosts of Dathomir and recover Tragic Hope to discover its ties to the Force. Confront the mysterious and violent Jerserra before she discovers how to unleash the forces dormant in the artifact and continue her quest for power. If you come out alive, you may even learn a new Force power.
