Saber versus claw. This is the basic setup of Korriban Creatures – a simple and entertaining miniatures scenario. On the one side you have the Sith, who must eliminate all the creatures, and on the other side you have the creatures, who must kill all the Sith.
The story takes place on the planet of Korriban, which is the home world of the Sith species and their Dark Lord Masters. In keeping with the Sith tradition of only respecting strength and power, Sith acolytes from the Darkside academy of Korriban are asked to purge the Sith temples and settlements of these nasty creatures. Such tasks are considered trials for the students of the darkside, and failure is not an option. It’s either kill or be killed.
Not only are darkside adepts from the Korriban academy asked to exterminate these creatures, but sometimes Sith troopers are asked as well. From what I remember of the Sith War and Exar Kun’s interaction with these creatures, such a task is not to be taken lightly.
From a chronological perspective this story does not add much in the way of furthering the annuls of Star Wars, but it is interesting to note that clearing the temple of destructive force creatures is one way the Sith would initiate its acolytes.
For my next post I’ll be moving on to The Betrayal of Darth Revan. Until then my friends, may the Force be with you.
