The Fourteenth Great Jedi War, also known as GJW XIV: Homefront, was a 6 week Brotherhood event that ran from May 30, 2020 to July 8, 2020
Prelude: Trouble on Tenixir
After months of discussion, The Severian Principate has requested the Brotherhood take on a number of their criminal population, including captured Collective agents from the events in the Lyra system. During the prisoner transfer, the Collective created a riot on the Principate’s prison planet of Tenixir. Brotherhood forces were sent to restore order and prevent the Collective from escaping. Additional information was relayed to the Brotherhood from prisoners within the complex itself, not wishing to be killed in the conflict.
The Collective succeeded in freeing some of their scientists from the facility, but just barely. Their remaining forces were either killed in recaptured as the Brotherhood quickly shut down the prison riot. Due to the Brotherhood’s swift actions, the relationship between the Principate and the Brotherhood improved even more.
As an act of good faith for their assistance, many of the prisoners were released by the Brotherhood. This group banded together under the lead of Rasha Hawee, becoming The Tenixir Revenants. This group has a strong hatred of the Principate, and due to the severity of the Brotherhood’s action on Tenixir is very distrustful.
While the Collective was focused on freeing their people, the Brotherhood launched their own rescue mission, recovering the captured Deputy Grand Master, Evant Taelyan, alongside three of the clan representatives that were lost in the Lyra system. Heavily tortured and in need of medical attention, they returned home to the Arx system.
Evant Taelyan was brought before the Grand Master, and mind probed. The Grand Master viewed Evant’s long and painful torture at the hands of the Collective before decreeing that Taelyan could return to duty as he saw fit. Taelyan’s hatred would now sustain him. The Grand Master decided it was time to put his plans for a powerful Sith Empire into motion.
In Collective Space, advancements had been made by the Technocratic Guild in augmenting their soldiers with an AI consciousness. These AI-enhanced soldiers work as one cohesive mind, making them very dangerous. Rath Oligard, leader of the Collective, ordered an attack on the Brotherhood with these upgraded soldiers, now that the “broken fool” was back home.
The new Headmistress Ciara learns of some research into the Collective’s plans with AI and the long-forgotten Ordu Aspectu’s research. At the same time Evant, having recovered from his capture arrived on the Shadow Academy’s space station, Nesolat Platform. Shortly after, the Collective began its attack, hoping to capture the station and use it to bypass the planetary shields of Arx below.

The Clans of the Brotherhood arrived to push back the Collective, facing off in separate theaters of war, Nesolat Platform, Mattock Station, and the Godless Matron. Under siege by experimental weaponry, however, Brotherhood-aligned forces took massive damage, resulting in the destruction of the shield gate above Eos City. Some good fortunate spared Mattock Station, after the Collective assault upon it was broken by the arrival of a Severian Principate fleet.
Onboard Nesolat Platform, Evant Taelyan reached the core systems, leading an arsenal of Collective forces against his own people. Utilizing the stations ejection and planetside landing capabilities, Evant led the Collective to Arx’s surface.
Additional Collective battlegroups arrived in the Arx system, including the Skylla, with Rath Oligard himself onboard. The arrival of these additional forces saw the destruction of the Brotherhood’s Resurgent-class Destroyer, the Endeavor.
Betrayed by his right hand, Telaris Cantor assured the Fist that there were additional plans in motion to prevent the Brotherhood’s destruction. The Clans of the Brotherhood were instructed to make planetfall and prepare to fight against the Collective in key locations vital to holding the system.
Elsewhere, having received a mysterious message from the Grand Master, the Seneschal left his normal duties to retrieve some old allies to fulfill the Grand Master’s plan.

With the Collective entrenched in the city of Eos, Telaris Cantor finally enacted his plan. Evant Taelyan arrived to kill his former master, and ensure the destruction of the Collective once and for all. Telaris used this opening to drain life from Evant to power an ancient Sith ritual. The ritual worked as a form of Battle Meditation, envigorating the Brotherhood forces while breaking down the will of the Collective. But even despite his great power, the Grand Master couldn't sustain the ritual. Asking for help from the clans to focus and combine their energies, the ritual was finally able to take hold.
As the ritual began in earnest, Rath Oligard, along with many of his upper lieutenants arrived to kill the Grand Master, who remained unmoving as he focused on the ritual. Rath Oligard was shot by his own, Chelsie Crimson, before he was able to kill Telaris. With Rath dead, and their forces being decimated, the Collective retreated from the Arx System.
As the Collective retreated, Atyiru arrived at the Dark Ascent, followed shortly by the Seneschal, who had been looking for her. The Grand Master's instructions had specified that key individuals would be present at the ascension of his Sith Empire, Evant Taelyan among them. Barely clinging to life, Atyiru was able to bring Evant back from the cusp and into the world of the living.
In the Cor'neria system, Rath Oligard awoke after weeks asleep. Following his murder at the hands of Chelsie Crimson, his cousin, Avitus, drained the life from "Sparks" and used her life energy to bring the Collective Leader back to life. Enraged at finding out what brought him back, Rath clawed out his own eyes before being subdued by medical staff. Avitus fled Collective space, taking with him the crystals the Collective had been trying to collect for years.
