A chance to gain a Lightsaber crystal. Unfortunately, the crystal you do obtain has no stats in the book, or the core rules making it an oversight.

In this adventure we had critical hits which is powerful in this version of the game taking out a minion or a rival in a single shot no matter how many wounds it still had. The hunting for the crystal was fun for the force sensitive character, but it left out the others. Was not much in this to make it a longer storyline.
