Darth Valkian, Devik Brawnhide, and Sludogo travel to the planet Togoria to seek mercenaries to use in the war against the republic. They land in the Caross, the capital city. They find that they may not leave this city without risk of being attacked by the natives of this planet. They find Mezka who is currently leading this city in her husband’s absence and she allows them to leave the city with no guarantee of their survival. She tells them of the Shaper who lives in the Swamp of Vapors and provides them with a guide. On their journey they are confronted by Terryn the Margrave of Togoria and husband to Mezka. After a brief confrontation with the group he decides to let them go and threatens to leave them staked to the ground for the Liphons to eat if he catches them again. After the group reaches the Swamp of Vapors they encounter strange creatures and constant traps. Valkian falls in a few pit traps and the group is extremely cautious. After reaching a cave in the middle of the swamp they encounter the Shaper, an old and feeble man with force powers, and his three creatures that attack them immediately. After a very hard fight they kill the creatures and question the Shaper only to find out that he is a defector from the Mandalorian armies and thought they were sent to kill him. Before leaving valkian decapitates the Shaper for his cowardice and takes his datapad which contains coordinates for Mandalore. They are off to meet this long thought dead army.
