The conflict between the Empire and the Alliance has made a land far, far away much closer. So close, in fact, that it has landed right here in Kansas City.
On the grounds of the Nelson-Atkins Museum lives a tree unlike any tree in the known universe. The tree exhibits incredibly unique properties . It is believed that the tree itself contains the highest concentration of midi-chlorians in the universe. There is no way to test for midi-chlorian count within a tree at this time, but Jedi can attest to the amazing flow of the force they experience when near this tree, which has been dubbed for now as, The Midi-Tree.
Needless to say, the Jedi have been able to use this increase of flow in the force to see across not only space but time with more clarity than ever before. Recently, several Jedi have become so proficient that they have been able to create incidents of force phenomena across hyper-space, essentially doing battle against Republic forces without being present.
Initially the Republic was flummoxed as to the source of the new “weapons” that seemed to be able to attack with impunity and invisibility. The Republic took heavy losses. However, intelligence finally made its way back to the Republic regarding the Midi-Tree. Since then the Republic has made its highest priority finding the Midi-Tree.
After an extensive search the Republic has found the tree. And now, the Republic is ready to make an assault and take the Midi-tree from the Alliance. Not only to prevent the Alliance from gaining advantage, but to turn the entire conflict to the favor of the Republic and crush the Alliance once and for all.
The battle is coming and you need to be ready. This is your opportunity to prepare yourself. Stop by, talk strategy, enjoy some pastries (while supplies last), and even get some assistance with solving some of the nearby puzzle caches.
