While in his vision he learns some terrible truths. Truths that make you stop and wonder what is going on with the Sith Empire in this timeframe! Most notably the Emperor himself!  Everything seems to hinge on this Sith Emperor, and what Kressh found on Lenico that changed everything for her.  Will learning the same truths change everything for Kel as well? So many questions! Who is Darth Thanaton? And how does he fit into Kels vision? And what's going on with the vision in the first place? How much of it is real? Where is Kressh REALLY at?  Who is the Jedi with Kel's Bith slave?  So darn many questions and so very few answers given! But don't worry- 'Arc Three' kicks off soon, and you know we'll be here to give you the details! So stay tuned as more details are sure to come!
