Yavin 4 Temple
Submitted by: Horvik – The Ebon Hawk
This was my attempt at creating a Sith Academy based on the Korriban Academy detailed in Darth Bane: Path of Destruction. Large sections of it were intentionally left empty to give a feeling of cavernous darkness; as though the entire building was nothing but cold, damp and musty. There is a large hall used as a gathering place or for lectures. A smaller, more personal lecture hall to the right and a meditation room to the left. The student quarters lie beneath facing the waterfall. They are complete with beds, lockers and a small communal table. The room is overgrown and would be constantly damp and uncomfortable.
The rooftop of the temple has the remains of what once was the tip of the pyramid. It has since weathered away and left a flat top to be used for dueling and saber practice as seen in Path of Destruction.
Beyond the bridge is the Administrator’s office and Overseer quarters to the left. On the right is the generator building. Everything OOC is located here (GTN, mailbox, storage etc…) on the second level. It is the only powered building on the Temple grounds other than a few hookups sent to the main temple.
In the back is an excavation. The theory is that the temple is one of many built on Yavin IV by the massassi to honor Naga Sadow following his exile there. The grounds feature a number of statues depicting the Sith Lord and his Massassi guardians.
Hidden underneath the temple in the caves beaneath the mesa is a shrine to another Sith Lord, the existence of which has forced the grounds to come under the care of a new Sith after the previous researcher earned the ire of his superiors.
