In the late 40th century rumours begin to arise of a powerful gemstone Tamacia the mirror of dreams and death having been found and granting its bearer great power. Formed in the heart of a red hole and stabilised in pure dwarf star crystal it was unearthed from a planet of eternal night (Like this one Dark Planet )by a mining expedition. There was only one survivor who was granted amazing powers by the gemstone teleporting from the collapsing mining colony and now on the run saught by those seeking to claim the stones power for themselves.
A bombastic mining engineer with a short temper for fools and the only survivor of mining colony XRJ-27 B currently on the run, afraid for his life and unsure who to trust.
A mysterious individual who approaches the PC's directing their attention to the situation and warning them that if Braithewait falls so falls the galaxy. She suggests they start not by finding him but by looking up Hazandra in the library.
Financier of the mining expeditiion and CEO of an intergalactic corporation interested in aquiring the gemstone for himself.
Alien head of Finch's security forces and utterly loyal head of the forces actually chasing and seeking to aquire the gemstone. Would have already succeeded if Braithewait didn't keep teleporting away. Is currently chasing him into different environements in hopes of finding one that will negate his ability.
Other characters can be added representing other parties if desired. From here on lie spoilers because I can't get the spoiler tag to work.
An ancient eater of light imprisoned long ago in the white crystal and placed on a planet that forever cut it off from light. Gravely weakened by its long imprisonment its feeding slowly on what light leaks through the gemstone until it grows strong enough to break free and feed.
The premise for this adventure is the party will be lured in with the image of potentially aquiring a gemstone like the one used by the ghost to gain incredible powers and abilities while the truth is an ancient evil is slowly gaining power and they need to find out how to stop it (preferably by returning the gemstone to a place devoid of light. Thus their first clue looking up Hazandra in the library (and figuring out how to survive there long enough to do so) will clue them in that while such stones do exist there were only four known gemstones remaining 2,000 years ago and Tamacia was not one of them.
Davies Prince's is the one responsible for the destruction of the mining colony and teleporting Braithewait to "safety" though her reasons for doing so... well that's another seed.
