Still in the West woods. Donab told us that Carn had been captured by the Nosh Sarama. The other initiates decided to go mount a "rescue." I made the rather obvious point that anything able to capture a Jedi Master would take care of them rather quickly, but as usual, they didn't listen to me. I decided to head back to the Academy, tell Master Bes everything, and be done with it. I'm tired of keeping secrets.
On the way back though, the "Unseen," Fremad, spoke to me again. I think he wanted me to keep going back to the Academy, but he reminded me that if I did, they would just rush into the Nosh Sarana lightsabers-a-blazing and soon there would be piles of skewered Sarama-steak all over the forest. I realized that when it came down to it, the Nosh Sarama and I both had the same point of view: the Republic had screwed them over, and it was about time something should be done about it.
So I turned around and headed back to the Nosh Sarama village. I figured the others would have charged in and been captured or killed by then, but I knew I could talk to the Nosh and see what was going on.
Lo & behold of course, as soon as I try to make contact with the Nosh to talk things over peacefully, I see the other initiates running and jumping around with ignited lightsabers as if this was a holo-vid of "Jedi Knight IV: The Unleashing." To their credit, they had found Carn. Of course, I could have gotten everyone out without sliced-and-diced Sarama. But the others don't worry about things like that, and any chance of talking to the Nosh is over now that they think I was helping the others.
Carn finally told the others about Ishtar, which was good--cleared the air of a lot of things, and I can at least see a bit better now why he did some of the things he did. Even as bad of shape as he was in though, I almost strangled him when he started spouting off about some stuff he should have known better about and that I won't go into here. And in his grand style, as I turn to walk back to the Sarama village, he cries out in his most sincere: "Jizana, if you leave us now, you'll die. Fremad is too powerful to face alone!"
Well, I kept walking, and here I am, safe and sound. Once the Sarama awaken, I'll have a guide show me back to the Academy. Fremad may like to talk, but I can handle him.
Actually, I think I hear the others approaching. I'm sure this will be interesting.
