There is no peace, there is anger.
I am the Heart of Darkness.
One thousand years before the time of Emperor Palpatine and the Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Vader, a New Sith Empire was rising. Rejecting the teaching of the Sith Lord Darth Bane, the Sith Master, Darth Ravage meticulously plans to bring about the a new order to the galaxy, a New Sith Order, as is his Legacy of the Sith.
The planet Mondeon is covered with forests, great rivers and rolling valleys. Yet despite what would normally seem a beautiful peaceful world is actually one of darkness. Long ago a dark entity, possibly a powerful Dark Jedi, died here. The result was a feeding ground for evil. All manner of dark creatures reside on the planet, especially Vampires. These Dark tales have now, however, passed into galactic folklore. Even the Jedi seem to have forgotten this darkness tainted world. A world that the few remaining Sith now call their home.
Space traffic is scarce on Mondeon, despite being located on the Corellian Trade Run. Trade is minor, and only the occasional ship stopping for refueling seems to visit. This is the will of the Sith Master Ravage. He does not want to bring attention to his world and has even gone to the trouble of erasing the worlds existence from many navigation ghuides and even the Jedi archives on Coruscant. Dotted across the main continent are a few medieval style castles and fortified houses. Most of these from the outside seen dilapidated and unsafe. Deep down though they are the homes of the Sith Lords. In The Old City, as it has come to be known, live the majority of the Sith worshippers. Lords Greysith, Sinister, Hellark and Garbacca all reside within the confines of The Old City. Darth Ravages temple is not far, as is the Citadel of the Dark Lord of the Sith.
The general population of Mondeon are working class. They have enough money to survive, but luxury goods are scarce on Mondeon, not helped by Darth Ravages dominant rule. Despite the dictatorship they are in there has been no uprising by the people of Mondeon. A simple spell of Darth Ravage to eliminate any defiance. The people of Mondeon go along with their day to day life. That they are ruled by the Sith Lords is common knowledge, though no one suspects that this is not known outside their world.
The Sith Lords are the ruling class of Mondeon, and if they had their way the galaxy. Masters of the Dark Side the Sith Lords often experiment with Dark energies and magics. Although all sith Lords are equal in title status in Sith society is based on power. Therefore it is the most powerful Sith Sorcerers that are the true rulers. There are occasionally conflicts between Sith Lords. These petty feuds often end up with one Sith Lord dead. On occasions where a conflict escalates The Sith Master, Darth Ravage, may intervene to settle the dispute.
The Baron carry out the running of day to day business. They deal with the citizens of Mondeon society, running the local towns and guilds. Although seeing a Sith Lord walking the streets of Mondeon is not uncommon the average citizen will rarely have any contact with them, but they will deal with the Barons.
Several Dark Cults exist on Mondeon. Despite differing practices of worship all the Cardinals are servants of the Sith Lords and the Sith traditions. Seen as Dark Side religious leaders the Cardinals assist the Barons in the daily running of Mondeon. On other worlds Sith Cardinals have secretly infiltrated religious sects so they can slowly sow the seeds of the Dark Side. Sith Cardinals have brought more servants to the Dark Side than any other members of Mondeons Sith Society.
The Vislors are often Dark Side Marauders doing the bidding of the Sith Lords. Several of Darth Ravages Vislors command bands of pirates throughout the galaxy. Through this piracy the Vislors bring more wealth to Modeon. Eventually the Vislors will take the role as Darth Ravages generals when he finally declares war on the Hutts, and then the Jedi.
The Guardians are the soldiers. Darth Ravage's army of Guardians grows. Troops are taken from Mondeon society, pirates and Dark Side Marauders. The Elite soldiers become Sith Warriors guarding the Sith Lords citadels. A small division of Guardians are posted in every town on Mondeon acting as a police force. Occasionally a Guardian becomes over-shadows even the status as Sith Warrior and is chosen as a special agent serving his Sith masters. The mysterious cocky soldier known only as 'X' is a prime example.
Dark Side Covens
The Sith are served by several Dark Side covens of witches and warlocks. Though their understanding of the force is different to that of the Sith and Jedi Darth Ravage is able to make use of their skills and loyalty. Darth Ravage has learnt that Dark Witches can twist the force in ways that a Sith Lord cannot. Additionally, their abilities to farsee the future are far more accurate than any Sith or Jedi could predict. On Mondeon these covens tend to be away from the towns, the witches preferring to camp in the woodlands, closer to nature.
The killing of ones enemies has long been a profitable business for those beings with few morals. Though there is no assassins guild based on Mondeon, assassins aren't that stupid, several members of this elite faction live on the Sith world. Any assassins living on Mondeon are the express permission of the Sith Lords. The most reknown assassin on Mondeon is the Vampire known simply as Spike who serves the Sith Master Darth Ravage.
Character Type: Sith Master
It was long ago that the Galaxy feared the name of Darth Ravage. Many years after the war that all but destroyed the Sith, Darth Ravage survives. Darth Ravage's attempt to destroy the Jedi temple on the planet Aldis led to several Jedi pursuing Ravage back to the world of Mondeon. In the fight that followed Ravages body was destroyed, but his will was strong. The Jedi trapped Ravage's spirit in an obelisk in what is now the temple of the Sith. In one last lash of evil Ravage was able to kill the Jedi, thus allowing his resting place to remain a secret from the Jedi Council.
Many more years passed. Over those years the spirit of Darth Ravage has taught several young Dark Side adepts. A few of the remaining Sith Lords have also been drawn the the planet Mondeon which they now rule like in the days of the Golden Age of the Sith.
But now Ravage has a new apprentice, and a new goal. Ravage wants order, Sith Order. He has decreed that law must be brought to the lawless. His quest is it bring the Sith Order to Hutt Space, a task that his apprentice's will not find easy.
Who taught Darth Ravage the legacies of the Sith is unknown, but it is obvious to all those that know him that he cares little for the teaching of Darth Bane. Ravage does not care for the rule of two. Instead he sees the Sith as an Empire waiting to arise and claim the galaxy.
Vicious Vile (player-character)
Character Type: Dark Side Warrior
Vicious Vile is a Mire, like the legendary Insidious Vile. Like Insidious, Vicious is also a Mire who has lost his shape-changing ability. Vicious Vile has trained in the arts of the Lightsabre and uses a double-bladed weapon much like that of the Dark Lord Exar Kun. Vicious Vile uses everything at his disposal, from technology to people, but mostly foul language.. Cold and heartless, rude and crude, Vile is a killer. He's also a bit of a lunatic. He's possibly the most foul mouthed individual in the Star Wars universe, and one of the strangest Sith Lords you would ever want to meet. Vile is often found in the company of Garbacca. The two Sith 'losers' tend to get given the jobs no one else wants to do, and sent as far away as possible. Their last assignment was a success after Vile led a pirate revolt killing the Duro pirate Bluebeard and then slaying Bogga the Hutt. The Jedi are seeking out this mystery assassin, but so far they don't even have a name to go on.

Lord Sinister was pleased when Darth Ravage executed the apprentice that had failed him. Sinister knew he was more capable, and more deserving, of the title Dark Lord of the Sith.

This Lord Sinister will do until the time comes when he can replace the despiteful Dark Warrior.

He already had minimal force powers, but was now able to expand on his powers the quick way, through the Dark Side.

Character Type: Dark Side Witch
Of all the allies of the Sith Lords one of the most mysterious and dangerous is Dru. This Dark Side Witch offered herself to Darth Ravage. Lord Greysith even suspected that this witch holds some power over the Sith Master, but surely this is nonsense. Whatever the truth Dru is a formidable, and usually overlooked adversary to the forces of Light. Her magic has caused the deaths of several of the Jedi, Jedi deaths Viscera has taken credit for. Dru comes across a quite mad. She is often found talking to the stars in the sky, claiming they are calling to here.

When the Sith Lords realised that Rixx was without his force skills his time was up. Unable to fight off two Sith Lords and the assassin Spike, Rixx became yet another victim of Dark Lords
