- First adventurer: "Damn! I have a bad feeling about this place!"
- Second adventurer: "It's quite normal. After all, this tomb is 100,000 years old, at the very least. Now don't worry, there's a lot of work to do."

An ancient tumulus dating back to ancient times was discovered on Tatooine at the time of the Galactic Civil War by archeologist Schardak. According to Schardak, this tomb was built roughly 100,000 years before the Imperial Era, and its builders were the first civilization to have lived on the planet.
An ancient mummy wrapped in metallic cloth was discovered in the tumulus. Analysis revealed this mummy was cursed by ancient magic and was in fact a monster whose aim was to rule the galaxy by investing Palpatine's body.
