View Full Version : Episode XX: The Jedi, the Sith, and the Hunger
09-26-2005, 12:47 AM
Opening Text Crawl:
For thousands of years, the JEDI have fought not only
dire threats to living worlds, but also betrayal and defection
within their own ranks. Such foes as the Galactic Empire,
the reptilian Ssi-ruuk, and the powerful Yuuzhan Vong--
all have succumbed to the Jedi Masters' power and command
of the Force. The SITH and others who follow evil have
only triumphed for a brief time in the history of the galaxy.
However, not even the greatest Jedi can eradicate the
longing within certain souls--an endless hunger for power...
Four thousand years ago, the ancient Sith Lord DARTH
NIHILUS used, and was consumed by, this hunger. No
one ever dreamed his legacy would survive and lie buried
with the remains of the Galactic Empire, but fate, or perhaps
the Force, has preserved them. A rabid group of disillusioned
and embittered agitators--former Jedi, Sith, and other Force
Sensitives--have discovered Nihilus' relics and teachings. When
their servant girl, TYSYACHA DVUKHSOTNAYA, questions them,
the NIHILITES cast her out, vowing to exile or kill all dissidents.
Will this be the truly final breath of the bright NEW REPUBLIC?
If the NIHILITES have their way, far more than that is at stake...
Silence. Darkness. The glow of red lightsabers. Saberstaffs,
to be exact. There were only twelve of them, but Tysyacha
knew that these twelve were the most powerful of her kindred.
Brothers and sisters in arms, they all were, if not in ancestry,
and yet Syscha knew she was about to be cast out--shunned.
"Do you know why we've brought you here?" asked a deep voice.
"To exile me," replied Syscha, humbly and patiently. "I realize
now that your decision is merciful, and that the Force is not
as strong with me as I once thought." She bowed her head.
"We would have Drawn you," the male voice told her, rich and
resonant with evil. "However, you're only a servant, a Force
Sensitive who has not been allowed to become strong in the
power we hold. Drawing you would be pointless. There are far
too many others in the galaxy who would serve that purpose
better--the Jedi, for instance. Speak now, before your judgment."
"Aye, I will." Trembling, Tysyacha Dvukhsotnaya took a deep
breath. "Daring to question the Nihilites was not only a foolish
mistake, but one born of pride and arrogance. I wished to know
more than what I had been taught, and instead of accepting my
role as a servant and diplomat, I wished to gain strength in the
Force. Such power is meant for the Sith, and the Jedi also, that
they may know it before they're Drawn.
"I, Tysyacha Dvukhsotnaya, do now submit to the judgment of
the Nihilites. It is righteous and just, and I'll now embrace my exile."
She turned and knelt on both knees. The twelve Dark Jedi, now
called Nihilites, who held lightsabers stood in a circle. They touched
the tips of their red blades together and lowered their malevolent
spoked wheel of light down to a few inches above her head.
"Kill?" asked an apprentice.
"No!" replied the deep voice in cold fury. "You will not harm her.
She will repent of her ways, foolish one, and we shall find her again."
The wheel glowed steadily, a punitive sign, but not a deadly one.
"We should have sent you to hard labor," said the voice decisively.
"Perhaps it will come once you know our true power. Depart, exile!"
Syscha stood up and exited the crumbling ruins of the Void Temple.
Who knows what kind of building it had been in the olden days?
Perhaps it had been a storefront, or an enclave of the Jedi. Now,
it was only black stone, with cold black water dripping down its sides.
With only three days' rations, five medpacs, and some ragged clothes,
Tysyacha Dvukhsotnaya set out to find a way to know the Force.

Some where in the green woods of Yavin, a young man stood on a grand rock, the wind blew so light at his face causing his mid-long black hair to stimulate its waves vibrations perfectly, his eyes were as black as the night, yet his face shown like a lonely moon in a starless night, though he was thin, his body was athletic and it seemed like he is a great warrior, the war has adorned his face with a long wound that extended from his right eye down to the bottom of his cheek…he was there to watch the sunset, it has been so long since he got some sleep, it was not the memories of his last war against the brutal Yuuzhan Vong that troubled him, and it was not the loneliness he feels because of his position that forbade any attachments…this time it was a strange vision about a woman, full of pain blended with ire for some reason he couldn’t know…
He got back to the jedi academy on Yavin, there he heard a familiar voice called at him, it was his father Luke Skywalker, it seems like he got back from his trip to Corusant, "Greetings father" he said, Luke could feel his troubled child, he is no longer Ben that he knows, he was strong, even the war couldn’t change him
"The vision that you saw, do you understand it?" Luke asked his son
"No…it's about a woman, in a tragic journey…a vision of a dying embrace, a scattered universe overwhelmed by silence…"
"may the force be with us all..." muttered Master Luke, as he put his hand on Ben's shoulder.
He was sleeping, at night and he saw her again, running in a beautiful garden full of violet flowers, he said with a high tone thus she could hear him:
"a velvet breath of life
enchants the garden of delight
Her voice within these winds
The flower so serene
Her cold and silent wail
Descend like midsummer rain
Bury my heart in thine
A taste of heavens wine
Beneath a fullmoon bright
she comes with gowns flowing wide
With bloodlike lips of faun
Enchanting eyes of dawn
Towards the moon she gaze
A lonely tear runs down her face
For all she lost in life
buried so deep inside
dance in her precious eden
where she lies deep
Her loss in life engraved
in dusk and angeltears
Enlight in night within me
Lead me there
where my heart lies buried
beneath the seven seas"
After that she looked at him and a silver tear runs adown her cheek and whispered " come…what's inside of me is lost…come" and soon she began to fade away, "stay" he shout "stay…thy tears shall forever haunt me…I shall come to thee" and suddenly he awoke, he put a black robe on, and went to the outside, there his mother the famous Mara Jade Skywalker was waiting for him, "whats going on baby" she muttered, " Ethereal vision haunting still...The solitude left me blind" he responded, "and what are you going to do?" she asked with a soft tone, "I shall follow my destiny, I need to see her, to know why this damn ghost is haunting me…only then my soul shall know rest…"
He took his green light saber and his black robe, kissed his mother goodbye and went to his ship in searching for an answer…

Alyssa Renolin masked her Force presence as she hid deep in the forest. A smile lit up her face as she slipped further away from the Academy. She was definitely getting better at slipping away from her classes. A little further out, she dropped out of the trees and pushed her way into a small clearing. Here, her smile faded.
"Welcome, child." The voice was calm and peaceful, but the words confused Alyssa.
"Child?" she demanded. "How can you call me child? You couldn't possibly be more than two or three years older than me!"
"Stop using your energy to mask your Force presence and sense me." The woman sounded rather amused. Alyssa sighed and did as she was told. With a frown, she shook her head.
"Who are you?" she whispered. The woman stood and turned to face Alyssa.
"I am Riebe Sothe," she answered. "Do you not recognize me?"
"Oh!" Alyssa exclaimed. "Last year..."
"Yes," Riebe agreed. "We met last year..." She smiled. "So tell me, Alyssa. Why are you still running from your instructors?"
Alyssa stared at the ground and muttered something unintelligible. Riebe smiled.
"They might be more interesting if you actually paid attention to them," she suggested. "Or perhaps it's the class sizes that bother you."
"Yes!" Alyssa exclaimed. "That's it!"
"Then you need a single master," Riebe concluded. Alyssa flinched.
"You are not learning in a group," Riebe answered calmly. "You need a single master, one who can see what you're struggling with."
"Are you offering?" Alyssa asked quietly. Riebe shrugged as if the idea was new to her.
"Why not?" she said. "Come on... we'll go talk to Skywalker and get it all figured out."
Alyssa grinned and followed Riebe back through the forest.

Even when you walk in the midday sun, the Dark is always there, attached to the soles of your feet. For the Dark is everywhere, and it always wins. Even Stars die out.
Far on the Outer Rim, on the ancient and forgotten world of Mustafar, there stood a young man. Dressed in black robes and cape, the man knelt in the center of a platform that hovered just barely above the lava. The leaping light and molten rock cast a dark, bloody light across the man. His eyes of truest blue were hidden beneath his dirty-blonde bangs. Clutched in his hand...was a saber. It was battered and the casing broken. No longer did the brilliant, viloet-red blade shine. No longer did its owner bellow the battle cry that hundreds heard before their immediate end.
From the fires and ashes shall be awoken...
A Darkness from Light shall spring...
Renewed shall be the blade that was broken....
The Crownless again shall be King!
The man looked up, the leaping flames tossing his face into brilliant contrast and dark shadow at random.
The Crownless again shall be King...

…in the middle of darkened space, a ship took wings through…inside of it stood the jedi knight Ben Skywalker…though he was in the ship, his mind was else where, he was thinking about this visions, what if this meant something?, what if his biggest fears comes true? He doesn’t want to be like his grandfather, the great Anakin Skywalker, he doesn’t want to fall dark, he knew that everything happened with Anakin started with a mere vision, about a women…the same as his….
"Beware of the dark side son"…a sound from behind broke the restless silence, Ben looked toward the source of this voice, to find his grandfather's spirit
"Grandfather…why should I beware of the darkside?"
"Your destiny is clouded Ben….though it's certain…" said the spirit
"and what should a man do if his destiny is decided from the moment he lives…what benefit lies in his choices if it's not him who choose, for it’s the force…"
"you made that choices Ben, the force only lead you to this choices which were variables before you gave them values, before you choose..."
he put his hand on his head, obviously from the headache he began to feel
"and what choices I have for this?...why this dreams keep haunting me?"
here the spirit smiled…"you've already choose to find the answers, and through you'll made others…strong in the force you are indeed…stronger than me and than your father, and the force will guide you…and it’s the best guider…"
"and where should I look?"
"go to Kalahan system…there you'll find your request where the tree cries and rock screams… may the force be with you.."
and the spirit began to fade…"wait…spirit….heal my eyes so I can see…I beseech you ghost…tell me….tell me...please…"
but Anakin's spirit faded away…he returned to the main control room of the ship, and he started to think about what Anakin told him, "Kalahan?!!" he muttered, both the Jedi and the Sith forbade this place, while the Yuuzhan Vong consider it a very sacred place that must be visited only by certain people, the Jedi and the sith have said that this place is dangerous thus must not be visited, still he knew that master Yoda has visited it before getting back to his exile in Dogobah, "why?" a simple word that holds a lot of questions, why did the Jedi forbade it? Why did Anakin told him to go to it? Why himself?...alot of questions stroke his mind, but no answers…
09-27-2005, 10:48 AM
….Ben's ship reached Kalahan, it was a deserted planet and he thought in him self that he won't find a tree in this place…he continued his searching but nothing was there, nothing but dune, until he found a great mountain infront of him, it has a grand door full of unknown simples, and wreckages of ships and men all around it…he went up the mountain's limit, to find a large space of dune again…the sun faded as the night send its dark sheets to cover the place, the nightfall fell upon this dying place…one hour has passed and nothing he saw…tow hours has passed and nothing he saw…three hours has passed and still nothing he saw…his eyes began to weak, though he tried to stay awake, he surrender to the sleep at the end…

((I think this and my last post are happening in the past... I'll stick the past part of this post in italics.))
Alyssa followed Riebe as she strode confidently into the Academy and straight to Master Skywalker.
"Beautiful morning, Skywalker," she said. Luke turned to greet her.
"A pleasure to see you so close to my Academy, Sith Hunter," he said.
"The pleasure is mine, I'm sure," Riebe laughed. She pushed Alyssa toward Luke.
"Alyssa!" he exclaimed. "We've been looking for you since last night!"
"I..." Alyssa began, but Riebe cut her off.
"She was running, Skywalker," she said. "Your large class sizes are not working for her."
"It's the best we can do right now..." Luke sighed. "There are too few Masters in our numbers to assign each one a single student."
"I know I am not an official member of your Jedi," Riebe said. Luke's eyes lit up.
"Would you?" he asked hopefully.
"Of course," Riebe answered. Luke closed his eyes and grinned.
"Thank you," he said. He turned to Alyssa. "I just want you to know that the woman taking you as her apprentice is not going to teach you just exactly as the Jedi here would."
"What do you mean?" Alyssa wondered. Luke grinned and looked at Riebe.
"Our views of the Force differ," she said. "He sees light and dark. I see the gray between."
"And what's that supposed to mean?" Alyssa wondered.
"It means, Riebe understands the Force in a different way," Luke answered. "She sees how destructive the Dark Side powers are, but she also recognizes uses for them."
"Gray Jedi," Alyssa said thoughtfully. Riebe nodded. Alyssa straightened. "So be it."
"Alyssa," Riebe said. Alyssa turned to face her master. "Your training is complete."
"What?" Alyssa exclaimed. "But..."
"You are ready," Riebe interrupted. "It is time for me to move on."
"Where will you go?" Alyssa asked quietly. But she already knew the answer.
"I have a few friends I haven't visited in a while," Riebe answered. "And after that... well, there are still a few things about my past I'm unsure of."
"Good luck," Alyssa said quietly. Riebe bowed.
"And to you, Jedi," she answered. "I'm leaving you my ship. Care for it well. It will last you a very long time."
With that, Riebe Sothe, took a Jedi shuttle and left the planet. Alyssa stared after the shuttle until she couldn't see it any longer. Then, she went to find Luke.
"What is it?" he asked. "Where's your master?"
"She has returned to her search for her past," Alyssa answered. "My training is complete."
"What is next for you?" he wondered.
"Since my parents were killed, I have become lost in the person I thought I was," Alyssa said. "I think it's time to discover my true self."
"You're taking a leave of absence, then?" Luke asked. Alyssa nodded.
"Know this," she said. "I will return."
"When you return, would you consider training an apprentice of your own?" Luke asked. Alyssa smiled, realizing he was nearly begging her to do so.
"That will depend on how I return," she answered. "Farewell, Master Skywalker."
"Farewell, Knight Renolin," Luke told her. "And may the Force be with you."
"And also with you," Alyssa replied. She went to the little starfighter Riebe had given her and took off. She wasn't sure where exactly she was going... but the Force would guide her.
((Korfredonn, do you mind if Alyssa meets up with Ben?))

The darkness of space. Best place for some privacy, best place for some money. Orlov worked the laser-drill with precision. Finally the hatch of the ship collapsed inward.
"Got it open, Cap!"
"All right, we're going in."
The two men slowly went in, careful not to disturb anything. They followed the hallway until they ended up in the cargo hold. Quickly they used the drill to cut into the floor, revealing a secret compartment with a single crate.
"We've got it! We're coming out" Said the captain.
"SIR!" Said a young voice on the radio. "There's trouble coming."
"Can you tell what type?"
"No, but we better get out of here."
The captain and Orlov had picked up the crate and were now running full-speed back toward the hatch.
"BURNE GET THE SHIP READY, AND PREP THE CANS!"
As they reached the hatch and pushed the crate toward their own ship, a small fleet arrived out of hyperspace.
"DAMN! All right, we're almost here."
Quickly they loaded the crate back into the airlock and closed it.
"BURNE HIT IT!"
The ship suddenly powered up and sped off, dropping six contaniers behind it
Aboard New Republic ship The Dauntless
"Sir! We've got a ship escaping."
"Scavengers. Can you pick up its signal?"
"Yes sir." The crewman worked at his station suddenly his jaw dropped. "Uh sir."
"Did you pick up its signal?"
"Yes sir.........six of them."
Aboard the ship
The captain was back on deck. He approached a young man in his 20s.
"Good work kid. All right let's get these back to Yavin."

Kalahan was a strange world, but Tysyacha found her circumstances
even stranger. Why had she questioned the Nihilites, defied them even
though anyone else would consider her actions reasonable? She thought
she'd been subtle enough to avoid execution--which she had--but not
quite subtle enough to avoid the anger of her Masters. One thing Syscha
realized that she'd failed to learn about the Nihilites was that they were
attuned to even the slightest trace of ambition in their lower servants.
Penitence was the order of the day, and Syscha welcomed the ache
in her side as she trudged through the deserted plains of Kalahan.
Exile is my destiny, my fate, she told herself, and through
it I shall reach a point where my Masters will see I am strong and
reclaim me. She reached inside her backpack, a rather ragged
carrying satchel, and ate a few pieces of dried fruit she'd been given.
"I musn't eat too much," she said, "because I still have a long way to go..."
Within the Void Temple:
The Nihilites were hungry again. Not for food or drink, but for power.
Eternal life, eternal sustenance through the Force. Since most of them
were lesser Force Sensitives who were neither Jedi nor Sith, the Dark
Jedi had them "feed" upon cannoks, kinrath, and other creatures that
they'd caged and brought over from Onderon. Eagerly, they supervised
their apprentices as they used their new Powers, still rather weak.
"Good," purred one Dark Jedi who'd come close to achieving the rank of
Sith Marauder. "Let your Draws be slow at first, and then when you
grow in physical and mental strength, you can 'feed' yourself more
quickly." He smirked and thought of how fearsome this young one
would eventually become. The apprentice Drew very cautiously and
humbly, like a young child first learning how to use a drinking straw.
Somewhere near them, another Dark Jedi hissed with hot fury.
"No, no, NO!", he roared. The Force-sensitive youth he was training
had utterly wasted his cannok, successfully drawing its life energy
out of its body but not being able to transfer this strength to himself.
"You simpering, worthless fool. You should have been able to 'feed'
now, after all the training I've given you." He put his hands on his hips.
"But, Master," cried the apprentice, "I've only begun--and you--!"
The young man, only a teenager, didn't get to finish his sentence.
He was suddenly Drawn, transformed into a stiff corpse by the very
Master who'd tutored him. The Draw was quick, perhaps too quick
for the rank of the Nihilite Master. As a result, the Dark Jedi felt
like he'd eaten a physical dinner too fast, like a starving vagrant.
The Dark Jedi staggered back, and he was smacked in the back
of the neck by another Nihilite's energy baton. This one was a true
Master, a Sith Lord who wanted more than the Order allowed him.
"That was stupid," growled the Sith Lord. "We don't waste our Apprentices.
Not many have joined our faction, and if this keeps up, this continuation
of satisfying your gluttony, I may have to Draw you as well, Harlan Kisrath."
Harlan's face turned as white as a sheet. He fell to his knees and begged
his Master for mercy. The Sith Lord performed a very light Draw upon him,
one only strong enough to leave his apprentice exhausted and humbled.
Wandering was hard work! Tysyacha shivered as cool night air
began to swirl around her. She needed to find a place to sleep.
Finding no shelters made by sentient beings, she settled for a
bed of dead coniferous-tree needles in a patch of woods. Sweaty,
tired and dirty, the young exile curled into a fetal position at last.
09-27-2005, 01:27 PM
"Bad news, there's a warrant out on the ship. They got our make and model."
"We're gonna have to land somewhere else. What's near here?"
"Sir, there's nowhere else to go."
"All right put her down there."
09-27-2005, 02:11 PM
((Well... it seems everybody's sort of congregating on Kalahan... so here comes Alyssa :p ))
Alyssa didn't really have a destination in mind when she left the Academy, but she was mildly surprised when her ship dropped out of hyperspace over Kalahan. She had barely glanced at the coordinates she'd plugged into the computer, but this? With a sigh, she directed the small starfighter toward the surface.
09-27-2005, 02:28 PM
The ship dropped out of space right behind Alyssa's ship.
"WHAT THE HELL?!" Yelled Burne.
"DODGE IT" Yelled the captain.
Burne pulled up, barely missing Alyssa's ship but sending his own out of control.
"Can you land?" Asked the captain.
"It's gonna be interesting." Said Burne.
"Oh god, oh god, we're all gonna die?"
"Great" The captain went to the intercom. "This is your captain, we may experience some turbulence and then.......explode." He turned back to Burne. "Get us on the ground safely."
"I DON'T KNOW IF I CAN!"
"Don't crash my ship!"
09-27-2005, 03:01 PM
As soon as Alyssa realized the trouble she'd caused, she spun her ship around and sped back up into space. The other ship was still spinning wildly and Alyssa groaned. She brought hers slowly closer and closer until her ship lightly nudged the other, slowing its spinning. She hailed the other ship.
"Everything ok over there?" she asked.
09-27-2005, 03:06 PM
"Yeah, we're fine. Thanks for the help." The captain turned to the young man. "Is she good?"
"Yeah. She's a jedi."
"Oh good." He got back on the comm. "What are you doing out here?"
09-27-2005, 03:16 PM
There was a moment of hesitation before Alyssa answered. "I'm... searching."
09-27-2005, 03:25 PM
"Listen, let's land and talk, all right?" Said the captain.
09-27-2005, 03:32 PM
"Agreed," Alyssa answered. She directed her ship once more toward the surface. Moments later, she landed, opened the cockpit and stepped out. The cockpit closed behind her and she stood, waiting for the other ship to land as the wind whipped her dark gray cloak around behind her. The hood was up, hiding her face.
09-27-2005, 03:39 PM
The ship landed. The ramp opened up and 5 people stepped out.
There was the Captain, Burne, Orlov, the kid, and a young woman.
The captain spoke first. "What are you searching for out in this planet?"
09-27-2005, 03:41 PM
Alyssa shrugged, a movement that was barely seen under her cloak. "Perhaps I'll know when I find it."
She extended a hand to the Captain. "My name is Alyssa Renolin."
09-27-2005, 03:47 PM
"Captain Reynolds. This is Burne, my pilot"
"Orlov, my first mate."
"Kayla, my engineer."
Kayla, the young woman, spoke. "A pleasure."
"And" the man paused, he quickly made up a name. "Vales, my passenger."
09-27-2005, 03:53 PM
"A pleasure to meet you all," Alyssa said, staring briefly at 'Vales'. She'd caught the hesitation and assumed the name was not real, but decided to keep her mouth shut about it. She turned back to Captain Reynolds. "What brings you all to such a place as this?"
09-27-2005, 04:41 PM
"Business, actually." Said Reynolds. "But we've got time. Anything we can help you with?"
09-27-2005, 07:25 PM
…"come…come to me…."
Ben awoke suddenly, he was sweating from the heat, this vision won't pass by…he walked to the control room, half naked, and he saw the surprise…"green pastures!!!" He wondered, his ship was lead by the auto pilot and it seems that he's reached a city within this deserted place…he stopped his ship and got out of it…
On the planed surface he wandered, lead only by the force
"I still carry in my mind, The feeling that I'm blind, I still carry in my mind, The fear that something is behind"
he said as he was freezing from cold…strange this place is, its like that this city is not from this planet, like he is in somewhere else…and the strangest thing is that he can feel the force growing stronger and stronger…strong like never before "maybe that’s why they fear this place" he uttered, then a temple appeared within the woods, he started to run fast as he saw it and when he reached this place, he felt an aura of great force, not light nor dark, but something else, something he doesn’t know... and in the heart of the temple appeared a door, like that grand one in the mountain, full of illustrated symbols, he tried to open it but in vain, even though he used his lightsaber but the door wouldn’t open…he remembered Anakin's words
"You'll find your request where the tree cries and rock screams…" thus he decided to wait in a cave lied near the temple…
"From the arising of the golden sun
To the gloomy shadow of the moon
The wind still whispers
While I'm standing here by myself
I'm waiting for a sign that could lead me
Away to the land of the answers…"
and suddenly the wind blew so wild, as the rain began to fall…"what was that?" he wondered, he thought that he had heard a scream, but then he reckoned that this is just a hallucination…yet he heard it once more, and now it was loader…thus he activated his lightsaber and returned to the temple's area, there he heard the scream again and it was loader than the first time, and in a reaction he turned to the voice's source and threw his lightsaber in that direction…the tip of his lightsaber hit a tree but not a creature appeared…he got his lightsaber back to hear the scream once again, he gazed at the source direction then to the tree he has hit, and he saw water drops from the tree leafs to the ground like tears…
"the tree cries…" he muttered as he felt both happy and surprised…he marched toward the tree, and the scream got loader as he got closer and closer, he moved the tree branches from his way to find a wall behind it, in the wall he found a hole, the wind stormed through this wall to create the voice he hear,
"and the rock screams.." he thought, then he reactivated his light saber and put it on the hole, it was a matter of seconds and the wall fell down…he is know happy as he got closer to find his answers, he looked to the sky,
"thank you grandfather…"
(( wildjedi no i dont mind, she can met with Ben))

Darkness...darkness was his only solitude...
The young man sat in the middle of a large room, chairs, tables, vases, containers, and pretty much anything that came within his range hovered in the air, floating around him in circles.
Kiatra sienta unosk...
Words of the Ancient Sith floated through his mind, those from what was believed the era of the Mandalorian War and the Jedi Civil War. And the era of his greatest of ancestors...
Turien estaq harlata...
He felt power...unbelievable power course through his veins.
Wealk yuaka surenta...
He focused that power, pulling it towards his core, wrapping himself in it. The objects under his power began to whirl faster and faster around the room...
He contained it into one, forcused blast, and the power battered against him, threatening to be realeased, but he held it in place for one more moment...
He unleashed the power, sending all the objects suspended in the air firing into the wall and shattering. The shockwave was immensly strong, and would almost be physically seen. He watched as it passed through walls and he sensed it continue on and on. He smiled, to have this power felt so amazingly good...and to think that for all these years, the so called 'Sith' had missed out on it...but it mattered not. He had found it. He had learned it. He controled it. Now, he would be able to finish what his ancestors started, and create a new Sith Empire. One that would stand alone and strong, a pillar of strength in a sea of weakness. The short-lived New Republic would fall and in its place, the Second Galactic Empire would take form, with him at its head.
Osta luciay eral suno guresta...
The Sith know no pain...
Osta luciay eral suno yeata...
The Sith know no fear...
Osta luciay tera blutak tyasnu.
The Sith shall reign supreme.

"Uh..." Alyssa said, glancing around. "N-no... thank you. I merely need to discover why I'm here."
She turned to go, but paused. "Good luck with your business."
Then she looked around again and decided to head north.
09-27-2005, 07:54 PM
….he walked in the temple slowly, he was amazed by its beautiful view, its perfect build, and charmed sympols, though it seems tranquil like death itself
"a great civilization this people once has…" he uttered, a moment passed as he find a small room in the middle of a champers, which seems to be an altar as the illustrators in the walls, he came close to this room, and his triangle medal began to glow weirdly, he got it from a dead Yuuzhan Vong body from the time of war…
"Again there is no door…"
his feeling of frustration of this place started to fade away as he saw symbols that differ from the one's he saw before, he couldn’t recognize them but for some unknown reason he can read them, it was a sacred text telling a story about some myth heroes …
"Here lie the everlasting ones
Those who gave life with their lives
They were giving the first symbols
And they bore the faces of animals
A snake and an eagle
The first was known as magic
and she bore an enchanted heart
A word of Exile upon her crest
was her eternal mark
The second was strength
half a moon was he
A triangle he adorned
a sword for all to see
The two were one, divided at rebirth
forbidden to unite, for fear of their strength
Their divine order was ignored
The two then became one
Their punishment was swift
they were denied and then cast down
Here lie the everlasting ones
Those who gave life with their lives…"
Ben taken by surprise as a blinded light shown from the room, suddenly the light faded…he looked at the writings again…and it was crushed…there he found an ancient hologram; he grasped it and then tried to activate it…
09-27-2005, 07:57 PM
Once Alyssa was out of earshot Kayla spoke.
"Sir, there was some damage to the engines. I can repair it but it's gonna take some time."
"All right. Kid, can you probe the jedi's mind."
"Maybe, but it might make her suspicious."
"She's already suspicious. It's too much of a coincidence if there's something going on we need to know."
"All right. I'll try."
'Vales' sat down and concentrated, trying to read Alyssa's intetions on this planet.
09-27-2005, 08:00 PM
Alyssa did sense the probing and immediately turned back. She covered the distance rapidly and quickly pulled 'Vales' roughly to his feet.
"I'll tell you why I'm here," she growled. "But first, explain who you are and why you want to know."
09-27-2005, 08:02 PM
"Because I believe in three things. Fate, my crew and luck. Neither one's been on our side recently. Now we happen to land on a planet with a jedi on it. None of the things I believe in are luck." Answered the captain. "Now get your hands off my crewmember."
09-27-2005, 08:08 PM
Alyssa released 'Vales' and took a deep breath. "I've been living a lie for something like eight years. Now, I'm searching for the truth... and until I find it, I can't give a better answer than that."
09-27-2005, 08:14 PM
"There is no truth, kid. Just layers of lies, people just pick the one they like the best. Better get used to that. " Said the captain. "Now, we're stuck here for a while while Kayla repairs the ship. And Vales." He tapped 'Vales' on the shoulder. "Could use with some field experience. You mind if we come along?"
09-27-2005, 10:35 PM
"I refuse to believe that, Captain Reynolds," Alyssa answered firmly. "But about you coming with me... I don't suppose the company would hurt." She glanced northward again. "We go north."
09-27-2005, 10:47 PM
"Great. Burne bring the mule out!"
Burne went into the cargo hold and brought out a large hovering skiff. Reynolds, Burne and 'Vales' boarded it.
"Orlov, stay behind with Kayla. Keep my ship safe."
09-27-2005, 11:18 PM
"So what kind of business brings you to this planet?" Alyssa asked as she approached the skiff.
09-27-2005, 11:20 PM
Reynolds extended a hand to help her on.
"Delivery, for Skywalker, actually."
09-27-2005, 11:34 PM
Alyssa thanked him as she grasped his hand and got on the skiff, but her eyes widened at the mention of Skywalker.
"Luke Skywalker?" she asked. "Well then you have the wrong planet... the Jedi Academy is on Yavin IV..." She stared at his face. "But you don't mean Luke."
She frowned. "Is Ben Skywalker here?" she asked quietly.
09-27-2005, 11:40 PM
"They just said Skywalker. Specified a route, we got sidetracked here."
09-28-2005, 12:40 AM
Oblivious to the goings-on, unaware that ships from perhaps hostile
and distant worlds had laned on Kalahan, young Tysyacha Dvukhsotnaya
slept. The sound of nearby crickets and the gentle creek-creek of
tiny frogs near her soothed her senses, and if it wasn't for the nightmare
she had escaped back in the hallowed Temple of the Void, she would not
have had this nightmare...
[I] The Nihilites were strengthening fast. They thrust out their arms
like kings and conquerors, drawing the Force and life-energies to them
like moths are drawn to a flame. They laughed coldly, cruelly, and threw
back their heads. After all, they were the new conquerors of the galaxy.
Jedi and Sith no longer existed. There were only her former Masters, the
ones who had cast her out, and the slaves they allowed to serve them.
At the head of the group of Nihilites, their fire-orange lightsabers all aglow,
stood one giant whose saberstaff was red. No sickly sunset hue plagued
this one's weapon: he knew where he stood, and Tysyacha knew where
she did as well--in chains, recaptured, strong in the Force, but so weak!
The giant's familiar bass voice reverberated throughout the ruins of what
had once been the Void Temple. What had caused it to crumble or fall?
"Good evening," said the voice. "I assume you have all been willing to go
to any lengths to feed your power. You have not taken the last step,
crossed the threshold that will pull you into the embrace of immortality.
Feeding upon beasts and animals never was enough. Drawing the Jedi
was not enough. Even betraying your own brothers and sisters in arms
did not give you the power you desire. However--four slaves will!
"They are so strong in the Force that they can be indefinitely Drawn, their
lives prolonged to provide enough food for you for centuries! Don't merely
use them as sustenance, however--we have lesser creatures for that.
Use them to serve you, to strengthen you, for a thousand years to come!
"I give you Luke and Ben Skywalker, greatest of the Jedi Masters, and--!"
Here Tysyacha sat bolt upright. She did not know the name of the third
slave that her former lord and Master had mentioned, but she herself was
the fourth! Panting hard, she started to cry. How would she hide from this?!
09-28-2005, 10:21 AM
….a man appeared in the hologram, he was talking in a strange language but in some way Ben could understand it…
"..if you happen to open this hologram, then you are one of the two, or in another point of view, you are one of us….I am Korfredonn The Ecclesiastes, or as people call me, The Eagle…offcourse you wont remember anything from your past life, but trust me, someday you will…anyway I'll tell you the story so you can remember….
Long time ago, there was the one who none completely know…the so called THE SEVENTH…he created the "MEEM" the thing that we call "The Force", and he delegated his creation ability to it, and then the world exists…for many years people forgot the knowledge of the force, thus THE SEVENTH decided to help his children remember, he created a world known as Kalahan and chosen three people from three races as a messengers, the first known as Sinn was a Sith, the second known as Karja was a human, the third know as Yuuzhan was a Vong…he taught them the six letters of ability in the Seventh Lore and kept the Seventh for himself…there were : "HA", "SHIN, "YAA,"YO", "KAF", and "SIMM"… and then they were sent to spread this knowledge across the galaxy…Sinn the sith start with the "YO" which represent the Attack ability, full of arrogance of their new powers, they killed their master and called this powers "the darkside of the force"…Karja the human taught his people the "HA" which represent the defense ability, unfortunately he died before he finished teaching his knowledge which remain hidden for a while…after a period of time the letter was known as "the light side of the force"… Yuuzhan the Vong taught his people the "SHIN" which represent the religion, and as he saw that his people are totally believers he left them to see his two friends, there he disappeared and his people gave him godhead and they call them selves the Yuuzhan Vong….
After several millennias the two were created…the snake and the eagle, full of knowledge they unleashed a war against the three sects; the sith, the jedi and the Yuuzhan Vong…twelve years of war, the snake began to question her role and the reason for this fight as none listened to them, tempted by the darkside, she left the war to be the dark lady of the sith, and so the sith left the war…admitting their mistakes, the Jedi left the war too, and still left the Yuuzhan Vong whose faithful believe was strong…after the snake betrayal, I was left alone to face the enemy, consumed by anger I cursed the snake and exiled her from knowledge, after loosing her power she became a void in the force, a wound that will keep bleeding forever…and so she died, killed by her own sith…I spent 7 knights weeping for her, forgot about my sacred mission…I was cursed too, striped of my powers…but now I can see…I saw my own demise… and I cried… I prayed to the force to bring me back so I can finish my mission and avenge my enemies, and rain started to fall…. he gave me a sign…"
Ben was shocked by this, "if master Yoda and Anakin visited this place then they knew about me….and probably my father too…" he thought…"but that didn’t answer my question…what am I supposed to do about this woman…or the snake?…"
He wondered, and suddenly the lighting strikes the earth
" It marks the sign of my rebirth" he concluded…rain start to fall, as Ben left the temple with the holocorn he's found, and as soon as he left, the temple began to fall a stone by stone until there is no trace…he jumped to his ship, armed with his new knowledge of the force, and left the place…
09-28-2005, 01:31 PM
"I see," Alyssa said thoughtfully. They continued on in silence for some time. Then, Alyssa squinted and frowned.
"Make for that patch of woods," she said.
09-28-2005, 01:39 PM
Reynolds turned to 'Vales'.
"I feel something too. Don't know what."
Reynolds turned the mule and stopped it at the edge.
09-28-2005, 02:09 PM
Alyssa peered into the forest and blinked. "A girl..." she muttered. She leapt lightly off the skiff and moved toward the sleeping girl. As she walked, she prodded the girl's mind lightly, waking her up slowly and gently to avoid alarming her. But it didn't work. The girl awoke and backed away in a hurry.
"Don't be afraid," Alyssa urged gently. "We won't hurt you." She paused. "My name is Alyssa. Alyssa Renolin. Why are you so frightened?"
((Tysyacha, the girl is you. :) ))
09-28-2005, 02:18 PM
'Vales' and the captain also went with Alyssa, but kept their distance
09-28-2005, 03:20 PM
"I, I--!" Tysyacha was startled, afraid that one of the Nihilites had
decided to come back for her so she could be Drawn after all, but
once she heard Alyssa's kindly tone, she knew it wasn't so. None
of her former Masters could be accused of kindness, except when
they were praising one of their Apprentices for doing something well.
"My name is Tysyacha," the young exile at last managed to blurt out.
"I was sent out, exiled, from the service of my former Masters, a group
of Force Sensitives called the Nihilites. Many of them are Dark Jedi, and
they're all very dangerous. I was one of their servants until I decided to
tell them I wanted to become stronger in the Force. That was foolish
of me!" Tysyacha stood up, brushed the needles off of herself, and
shook Alyssa's hand. "That was why I was exiled. Why are you here?"
09-28-2005, 04:11 PM
Alyssa ignored the question. "Why is it foolish to desire a deeper understanding of something so great and mysterious as the Force?"
09-28-2005, 05:19 PM
Syscha sighed. "It's kind of hard to explain, at least for me. My Masters
said--the Nihilites--that everything in the galaxy had a place, a proper
role to play, and people who served food and scrubbed temple floors
had no business being Jedi or Sith. Even if they were Force Sensitive,
their job was to serve their Masters, not to become one of them."
She folded her hands in front of her waist. "I overstepped my bounds.
If the whole world were Jedi, or Sith, or even Nihilites, then who would
help them achieve their goals, even in the lowest ways? I was content
to be a scullery maid, or so I thought for a while. Then, as I watched my
Masters, I realized that there was a pull in me to grow strong in the Force--
and to join them. Most people call that pride." She smiled sheepishly. "Most
people can't stand pride, either, unless it's their own."
09-28-2005, 06:04 PM
Zaalbacca and Roarboar scouted Mustafar for more samples of minerals they were gathering."Soon, we can repair the ship that our ancestors gave us." said Roarboar cheerfully(sp?)."Yeah. Soon, The Undertaker will fly again." said Zaalbacca. Zaalbacca heard something. "What was that?" Zaalbacca said suddenly."Let's check it out." said Roarboar. They went to where the sound was from. They looked down at a broken droid."What do you think this kind of droid is?" Roarboar asked."Commentary: Must kill all meatbags." it said before it shut down. They brought it to the Millenium(sp?) Falcon that Han let them borrow. They looked at it's serial number. It said HK-47.(Is this ok?)
09-28-2005, 06:08 PM
Reynolds and 'Vales' looked at each other.
"Nihilites? How about we get back to the ship?" Said Reynolds, looking around nervously. "Now."
09-28-2005, 06:09 PM
The man meditated in a chamber lined with holocrons. One in particular rang out over the rest. One of Dark Lord Elron's earliest teachings to one called the Jedi Exile.
"The Dark is generous. Its first gift, is comforting Illusion: the ease of gentle dreams in Night's embrace, the beauty that imagination brings to what would repel in Day's harsh Light. But the greatest of its comforts is the illusion that the Dark is temporary: that every Night brings a new Day. Because it is Day that is temporary. Day is the Illusion.
The New Republic is the Illusion. Peace is the Illusion.
"Its second gift is concealment: our True Faces lie in the Dark beneath our skins, our True Hearts remain shadowed deeper still. But the greatest Concealment lies not in protecting our secret truths, but hiding from us the truths of others. The Dark protects us from what we dare not know.
The Jedi do not know that their ranks are easily corrupted.
"Its third gift is the Light itself: days are defined by the Night that divides them, as stars are defined by the infinent black through which they wheel, the Dark embraces the Light, and brings forth from the center of its own self. With each victory of the Light, it is the Dark that wins."
The Republic do not know that there is a true Darkness hidden behind the Fire. Their enemy from milenia passed is not dead.
"The Dark isn't all that its made out to be. They say that the end of all life comes from the Dark. While that is true, all life comes from the Dark as well. They believe Light to be the source of life, yet a single wind can blow out the candle. And then what? There is nothing but black. To many people, the path of the Light became too hard, to difficult. They tried and tried, yet it seemed no matter what they did, they made things worse. Their candles had gone out. Instead of stumbling blindly, many of them chose to embrace the black, embrace the Darkness.
Many have, and many more will.
"Many ask, 'why did I fall? Why couldn't I follow the Light and be the warrior I wanted to be?' The answer is simple, You cannot. The Jedi teachings are flawed in many ways. They teach you compassion, yet forbid love. They teach you the ways of the Lightsaber, yet they dissuade violence. They teach you that the Force is not to be trifled with, yet they teach you to manipulate it. They say it is dangerous, yet they show you secrets that could lead to the destruction of entire systems! You saw what the Dark Lords can do with the Dark Side. However, they walked down the path of the New Sith, the followers of the idea. The path sought out by those who love power and need more of it. What I can teach you is different.
The Jedi teachings shall fail once again, and the Order with it. Fall to ruin at the hands of the Fire and Darkness!
Suddenly, there was a ding from a near-by terminal. Curious, the man stood. There was a security alert from one of the droids, HK-47, who had been in his family for generations.
He opened it, and a video screen lit up.
"What do you think this kind of droid is?" Roarboar asked."Commentary: Must kill all meatbags." it said before it shut down.
The screen went blank.
"Intruders." he spoke to the darkness.
09-29-2005, 01:32 PM
"You seem to know something of these Nihilites," Alyssa said to Reynolds and 'Vales'. She shrugged. "So I suppose I'll follow the nervousness of my companions and agree to return to the ship."
She turned to Tysyacha. "We can offer you better protection than these few trees. Will you come with us?"
09-29-2005, 03:21 PM
"Konyechna," said Tysyacha quickly, and then, "Um, I mean
'of course!'" She giggled to herself. "Sometimes I forget that my native
language is hard to understand, and I slip into it when I have strong
emotions. Fear is the emotion I feel right now--that's strakh,
but I also have hope-- nadyezhda. You have given me hope,
Alyssa, and you companions of hers. I can't wait to board your ship!"
Tysyacha, Alyssa, and the others with her strode back toward the
vessel. Once they were all aboard, the young exile began to explain
more about her former Masters, the Nihilites. Her chest grew tight.
"These people are more dangerous than the Jedi or the Sith have ever
known. I suppose that eventually, you can't even call them 'people'
anymore, because they--they know how to Draw. You know how the
Dark Jedi use deadly Force Powers called Drain Life and Death Field?
Well, my Masters, the Nihilites, have perfected these techniques and
consider them art forms. The Nihilites believe that these powers are
the strongest ones in the Force. I've seen Sith use them--they are!
"Not only have they perfected Drain Life and Death Field, but they've
improved them tenfold, calling these enhanced Powers Lifedraw and
Draw Field. Under these circumstances, anyone can get killed with
two or three such Draws, and if a Nihilite Vanquisher uses them--
that's the equivalent of a Sith Lord, but much higher--it only takes
a single Draw or a use of Draw Field to turn someone into a corpse!"
Tysyacha sighed heavily. "I'm so glad they exiled me!"
09-29-2005, 05:43 PM
Reynolds, Burne and 'Vales', having encountered them before, ignored Tysyacha. Once they arrived at the ship.
"Burne, get to the cockpit, now." He walked to the engine room where Kayla was hard at work.
"Kayla how long till we can get in the air."
"I don't know, Cap. Compression coil's busted, I'm working on a fix."
"Get it done soon. We're getting out of here. "
09-29-2005, 05:59 PM
…accepted his new knowledge, Ben Skywalker roamed the planet of Kalahan searching for someone…he has sensed that there is someone else beside him in this place…
"What is going on here??"
he wondered as he saw a big ship…probably a republic one landed on the ground adown him…after a moment of thinking, he decided to go down and ask them, thus he landed near the republic ship, an then he got out from his…
"What would a group of people do in a system like Kalahan…speak quickly???"
He said with an order tone..
09-29-2005, 06:46 PM
(there's actually two ships.)
The nearest person was Orlov, who took one look at the kid trying to give orders and laughed.
"CAP! YOU GOTTA SEE THIS!"
Reynolds came running.
"What's going on?"
"There's a kid here trying to give orders!"
Reynolds looked at Ben.
"Orlov, that's Skywalker's kid."
"What?! That arrogant runt is Luke's kid?"
"Orlov, your mouth's still moving. You might want to see to that." Reynolds turned to Ben.
"What do you need?"
09-29-2005, 07:03 PM
((Korfredonn... Ben would probably have recognized Alyssa... but since he didn't immediately, she's recognized him! :p ))
"Ben Skywalker," Alyssa said. "You've been gone a while... but I don't remember you demanding information from everybody you met." She sighed. "To answer your questions, I am here because I was led here."
She smiled slightly. "I didn't pay attention to the coordinates I plugged into my computer," she explained. "But it seems the Force has led me here." She gestured to Tysyacha. "This girl's name is Tysyacha. She was a Nihilite servant and was recently exiled for her desire of knowledge."
09-29-2005, 08:07 PM
A sound gurgled from Tysyacha's throat, a startled "Fhqhwhg!", but she
quickly stood at attention. "Are you really Ben Skywalker," she asked
humbly, "the son of the victor at Endor, Luke Skywalker?" She shyly
held out a pale, soft hand with long fingers for the young man to shake.
"You don't know how pleased I am to meet you," she told Ben. "Is your
father, Luke, still alive?" Master Skywalker's hair might be gray by now,
or white, but that didn't mean Tysyacha considered him past his prime!
Meeting Ben made Tysyacha temporarily forget the hurt she felt
at being ignored by Alyssa's companions aboard the ship. Aside
from Alyssa and now Ben, she didn't know anyone else's names.
09-29-2005, 09:18 PM
Zaalbacca prepares for take-off while Roarboar reprograms & repairs HK-47. "I'm detecting a bunker nearby." Zaalbacca said. "I didn't know that anything else besides lava fleas lived here." Roarboar said. "Let's check it out." Zaalbacca said. They flew the Falcon close to the bunker & landed. They go inside to see what they can find.
09-29-2005, 09:18 PM
As the man slipped outside the compound and rounded a corner, a bit of an electric jolt shot through him and he flinched. Something...was going on. Somewhere...somewhere there was a gathering of Jedi. Or, at least a gathering of Force Sensetives, somewhere near by. Off system, apparently, but not far enough away to escape his senses.
No matter. I will deal with these intruders, then I will investigate.
He darted around another corner, down a hallway, and up some stairs. There, he came face-to-face with a pair of wookies. He was taken by surprise for a moment before doing a back-flip away from them and slipping a rod from his belt. He flipped a switch, and a beam of molten fire errupted from the top of the rod. He slid into a fighting stance, holding the saber horizontally next to his head.
"Who are you and what do you want?" he demanded
09-29-2005, 09:23 PM
Roarboar & Zaalbacca draw their lightsabers when they seen the figure. Roarboar said,"It's a free galaxy,so don't tell us what to do.". "Why are you here?" Zaalbacca shouts.
09-29-2005, 09:44 PM
The man was slightly surprised when the wookies drew sabers from their belt. This could complicate things a bit. No matter. They were still no match for the teachings of the ancient Sith.
"This is my home, my place of solitude. My temple, if you will. Regardless of how 'free' this galaxy is, you have no right to trespass here. I order you to leave, or else face the consequences!"
09-29-2005, 09:56 PM
"Look, we're here to collect minerals & scavange what we can find." Roarboar said. "We'll leave in peace if you dont harm us or our ship." Zaalbacca said.
09-29-2005, 10:04 PM
"If you leave now, I will allow you to go in peace." he said, but he didn't lower his saber. Although he was positive he could easily take the two walking carpets, he wasn't eager to engage in combat. He still had to discover what that disturbance was.
09-30-2005, 08:44 AM
…"what do you need?" Reynolds said to Ben...
"You've answered my question with another….how strange…" He said, then he saw a girl from afar, he believed that he knew her, yet he recognized her when she said…
"You've been gone a while... but I don't remember you demanding information from everybody you met."
She was Alyssa, one of the academy students, and she justified her presence on this planet by a mysterious and yet a similar word "the Force has led me here", at first he did not believe this reason, but then he felt stupid because he himself was led by the force too...there was another girl, she tried to hide at first, consumed by fear, but when she heard his name, she came quickly toward him, meanwhile Alyssa was introducing her to him, she said something about a nihilite servant which he didn’t understand, yet she mentioned the word…"Exiled.."
Tysyacha unleashed a sea of question toward Ben while she held her hand shyly for Ben to shake, he gave his
"Yes I am Ben Skywalker, Luke's sun, and he is alive…" he answered seriously,
He gazed at her, probably tying to remember her from his dreams-if it was her-
But in vain, soon their hands held together began to sweat, thus he pulled his hand and a little smile adorned his serious face, soon the smile disappeared as he move his sight to stare at Reynolds
"We have to leave this place at once…its dangerous to stay here…"
Then he looked at Tysyacha then at Alyssa and uttered
"You must take her to the academy in Yavin…looks like her interesting information might answer the strange disturbance within the force my father had felt…"
Then he cloaked and marched toward his ship, yet he could here a sound coming from behind…
09-30-2005, 11:40 AM
Alyssa nodded, but there was a frown on her face. She turned to Tysyacha. "I had not been planning on returning to the Academy so soon," she said. "But it's either that or you must travel with me."
She paused. "I think I'll let you decide. What is it you want to do?"
09-30-2005, 01:19 PM
Tysyacha made a quick decision. "The Nihilites are not like any other
enemy the galaxy has known, not even the Yuuzhan Vong. That group
of aliens and their vicious attacks will seem benign compared to what
my former Masters plan to do! If Master Skywalker is indeed at the
Academy on Yavin, then I must tell him about the Nihilite threat."
She waited for Alyssa's response, her palm still a bit damp from
holding Ben Skywalker's hand. She hoped no one could see the
sudden blush that had come to her cheeks, or her delighted eyes!
09-30-2005, 03:26 PM
…Ben stopped when heard Tysyacha's words, she seemed so honest, and he wanted to believe her…but what if she was "the snake" that the myth talk about, if so then she might betray him, and worse, he might fail in his mission too, but what if all this is wrong?....he speak to himself, what are you thinking you fool?!! Are you still suspicious even after what you've seen?!! "the eagle" has failed in his mission because he was suspicious like you now, so try to show some self-confident or you'll end up like before….
Though he still not convinced after his last self argument, he decided to let go right now, he has stopped and the people behind were waiting for him to say something…he turned and gazed at Tysyacha, she was quite different now, the fear that once was eating her from the inside is altered with happiness that made her face to glow like a mourning star in a complete darkness…
"Great…then you have to go with Alyssa to the academy…if these Nihilites are as strong as you said, then we should be prepared…"
Then he turned his back to her and said
"I will meet you in Yavin…till then…may the force be with you…"
He got in his ship and fly away…
09-30-2005, 08:04 PM
Kayla approached Tysyacha.
"Don't mind the captain. He gets rude when he's worried."
"Yeah I do" said the Captain. "Which reminds me, why aren't you working on the engine again?"
"Compression coil's busted to hell. We can fly but we won't be able to go into hyperspace."
"Okay, what's in-system?"
"Only place they'd have them is on Mustafar. On the old factories."
"Dammit. I don't like it, but we're going to have to go there. Tell Burne to set a course there, then have everyone meet me here." He turned to Tysyacha.
"This ship's can fit more people. Do you want to come with us or to squeeze in with her." He motioned to Alyssa.
09-30-2005, 08:41 PM
"I think I'll bunk with Alyssa," said Tysyacha matter-of-factly, "since we're
both young women. As for me--is there any menial ship-keeping work I can
do? I'm not good at repairing engines or anything like that, but I'd be truly
willing to wash dishes or launder clothes. Anything I can do to help, sir."
Syscha smiled and gave the captain a humble salute. It wasn't the
military snap-to-attention such persons usually expected, but for
a servant, the Nihilites considered such a gesture entirely appropriate.
09-30-2005, 08:49 PM
The captain smiled.
"No neeed for that. Anyway let me introduce you to my crew. This is Kayla, our engineer." He tapped her on the shoulder and she smiled friendily.
"Over there is Orlov, my second-in-command." He pointed to an older man who was currently cleaning a rather large collection of weapons.
"Over there is Vale" He realized he'd ly said another name. "Sorry, I mean Vales." The young man was currently getting the hovercraft back into it's hold.
"And up in the pit is my pilot, Burne."
"Finally this" He tapped the ship's wall "Is Fable. "
09-30-2005, 09:40 PM
Tysyacha smiled back, glad to know that the captain of the fabled Fable
was as honorable and friendly as her new colleague Alyssa seemed to be.
"I'm glad to meet you," she said, "and if you're wondering where I come
from, I'm not the only one in my family who has ever been exiled. Long
ago, there was another Tysyacha, known as the Jedi Exile, the one who
chose to cut herself off from the Force upon the planet of Malachor V.
I am a direct descendant of hers through one of her twin sons, Kilian."
She glanced around the ship to see if anyone recognized these names.
09-30-2005, 11:11 PM
"Ok, may we please take the HK-47 unit with us?" Roarboar asked.
10-01-2005, 01:27 AM
Orlov reacted for a split second to the mention of the Exile, but immediately returned to cleaning his weapons. The captain's face carefully stayed expressionless, but recognition sparked in his eyes. The rest didn't react at all.
"We should lift off now, the Nihlites could be back any second." Said Reynolds.
10-01-2005, 03:08 AM
"The Exile," Alyssa whispered. She nodded. "Come, Tysyacha." She turned to Reynolds. "You're headed to Mustafar? Be careful. I've heard of a young hermit living there... and he doesn't like to be disturbed."
She made for her little ship. "I'll take Tysyacha to Yavin IV and Skywalker... Master Skywalker." She grinned and shook her head. "I'm picking up my old master's bad habits."
The cockpit of the little fighter opened, revealing two seats and Alyssa turned to Tysyacha. "I know it's not the most comfortable way to travel, but there are worse ways to do it... Riebe and I always managed." She smacked her forhead with the palm of her right hand. "Another of her bad habits I picked up... always talking as though the person I'm talking to knows who I'm talking about!"
She laughed and climbed into the pilot's seat of the fighter and motioned for Tysyacha to get in behind her. "Riebe Sothe was my master. She recently turned me loose and went on to find her own path... wherever that might lead her. This was actually her ship..."
She flew the fighter up into the atmosphere and docked with its hyperspace ring. "Old technology, I know... Riebe doesn't say much about herself, but I seriously suspect she's a good little bit older than she admits to being."
The docking completed in a matter of seconds and Alyssa quickly plugged in the coordinates for Yavin IV. Before engaging the hyperdrive, she paused and glanced over her shoulder, "Ready?"
10-01-2005, 11:37 AM
"Why? You have everything you need. The droid has been in my family for generations, ever since my ancestors were brought here. No, you cannot. And unless you'd rather see what color your insides are, I highly suggest you leave. Now." he turned to leave, but one of the wookies spoke up.
"But, wait, hold on--"
The man handled his saber menacingly. "Leave. Now." he said with all the menace he could muster, aiming to scare them off.
Another jolt was sent through his body, and he turned sharply, gazing into the distance as if he saw straight through the walls.
That Force signature...I know that Force signature!! But how could it be him?? I thought he was dead!
10-01-2005, 03:47 PM
"All right, let's get moving."
Reynolds pressed a button and the ramp started retracting. He calmly stepped back into the ship, the doors closing a split second behind him.
"Get us up Burne."
The ship slowly lifted up. Reynolds walked across the hold and up some stairs. Orlov intercepted him.
"Sir, with all due respect, why the hell are we agreeing to helping these people? We found skywalker, let's get paid and get outta here."
"There's something going on. We find a jedi, a Nihlite servant AND Skywalker all on the same planet? There's something going on."
Orlov looks angry, but walks away. Reynolds walks up to the pit.
"How we doing Burne?"
"Doing good Cap. We should be in its orbit in a few minutes."
10-01-2005, 04:37 PM
"OK, we will leave." Zaalbacca said bravely."He thinks he's scary." Zaalbacca thought. The Falcon takes off. "That, hopefully is the last time we will ever go there." Roarboar said. Then, it hit them. "We forgot to leave HK-47 back there." both of the wookies said in unison. "Hopefully, he doesn't have a ship." Roarboar said."Yeah. We can return him when he's upgraded and restocked with the deadliest weapon out today." Zaalbacca said confidently.
10-01-2005, 05:04 PM
A man stands in the same spot where they found Tysyacha. He approaches the exact spot where she was lying down, kneels down and inspects the ground. He stands up.
"She's gone." He says. "And not alone. " He follows the group's tracks out of the forest. He sees the trail the hovercraft left behind and frowned.
"Who are you hiding with, servant ." He wondered.
10-02-2005, 02:06 PM
Tysyacha felt a shudder run through her. Someone is looking for me,
she thought to herself, but why would it be one of my former Masters?
Once the Nihilites exile someone, they completely wash their bloodstained
hands of him or her, unless that same exile returns to the Temple. If anyone
is foolish enough to do that, then they're Drawn, and that's the end of that!
"Excuse me...Orlov?" Tysyacha asked timidly. "Captain? I know that you
all might be suspicious of me, considering where I come from, but I was
almost Drawn for disobeying the Nihilites. The only reason that they
reconsidered, I think, was because one of the Dark Lords saw me as
unworthy even of that final indignity! The Nihilites mainly prey upon
sentients and beasts that are very sensitive to the Force. Like Jedi."
She swallowed hard, even though there was really nothing for her to
swallow. Her mouth had gone dry. She hated speaking of her previous
Masters. Nevertheless, Syscha knew that doing so was necessary if
the Nihilites were ever going to be stopped. She stood her ground.
(OOC: As I said before in 'The Lawful Sith,' I'm going to my Uncle
Emil's funeral. I'll probably post again on Tuesday, because we
might get back late Monday night. May the Force be with you! :))
10-02-2005, 03:10 PM
"Where you come from isn't any fault of yours." Said Reynolds. "Neither is who you worked for before. What matters is what yo do now. I'm trusting you, and I swear we'll do anything in our power to stop these guys." Orlov looked angry at this, but walked away silently. "Now go on to Yavin with Alyssa. You'll be safe there. We'll catch up as soon as we get what we need."
Later, in space
The crew stood around the lounge, with the holodisplay in the middle. It showed a cylindrical object with a handle on the side and two cables sticking out of both ends
"This is what we need." Said Kayla "A compressor coil for the hyperdrive. They're pretty common, so we should find one easily in one of the old factories."
"All right. Everyone get some rest now." Said Reynolds. "After that we're going to Yavin."
Orlov, waited for the crew to leave then spoke.
"This isn't our fight, Cap."
"It is now. We've faced these guys before, if they're really planning to conquer the galaxy it's better to stop them sooner than later."
"Why don't we just turn everyone over in exchange for letting us live."
"Yeah? How long do you think that will last?"
"What about the . You heard who she's descended from! We can't trust her."
"Forget where you come from Orlov? Am I gonna judge you for what your grandfather did in the Civil War?"
Orlov glared at Reynolds.
"That's a low blow."
"Too bad. We also need work. The New Republic's ed at us, we need to make that right."
The Kid's bunk
'Vales' sighed and lay down on his bunk. He closed his eyes and let sleep drift him off.
He was in a bright room. He looked around, there were piles of junk everywhere and a few windows looking out to a beautiful but dangerous landscape of flowing lava. Against his will he walked forward. He saw the part that Kayla had shown them, floating in mid air behind a small pile of junk and ran toward it.
He jumped over the pile of junk, and stopped in his tracks. He looked down. The part was floating over an empty bottom less hole. No, that wasn't right. The hole was full, full of darkness. He couldn't see it, but he sensed it somehow. He reached out for the part and grabbed it. He started pulling it toward him, when suddenly out of the darkness popped out a gloved hand, grabbed his wrist and pulled him in. He screa-
He woke up, fighting the urge to scream, his heart beating strongly enough to shake his chest. He stood up, went over to the sink and washed his face.
10-02-2005, 04:42 PM
The man sat crosslegged, meditating. He floated a few inches above the ground, calling the Dark power he reveled in around himself.
What was that disturbance? he wondered as he felt a slight shake in the Force. His interest roused, he dove deeper, following the vibration to its source...
What he saw made him lose his concentration. In surprise, he slipped from his meditation and fell forward onto this hands and knees.
It was him. The boy. He knew it. It had to be. And what was stranger yet, he seemed to be looking for something...some kind of part. And he was coming straight towards the facility.
Like a fly drawn to light.
10-02-2005, 06:19 PM
((Tysyacha, read post #73... we're in Alyssa's ship and she's waiting for a response from you. :) ))
10-03-2005, 08:34 PM
'Vales' wandered the ship aimlessly, knowing that if he fell asleep the dream would come again. After awhile all the lights on the ship came on, and the Captain's voice came through the comm system.
"All right, lady and gents, time to get up and work. Everyone meet me in the pit in five."
'Vales' arrived there immediately, the Captain looked surprised but said nothing. The rest arrived in under three minutes. The Captain smiled broadly.
"That's why I'm proud to have you as my crew, always so damn punctual. All right, so this should be easy, a quick land and grab, except we'll be searching for a specific part. Now" He pressed a button and a screen came to life, showing a map of Mustafar, with various spots highlighted.
"These are all the factories on Mustafar. The good news is that these. " Most of the spots disappeared. "Have been off-line too long to have the part, these" A few more spots disappeared. "Still have security systems active, and these. " A lot more spots disappeared. "Are now covered in nice warm magma. So that leaves these. " There were now only a couple dozen spots. The captain turned to 'Vales'
"Now kid, eenie meenie miney mo, where the hell do we now go?"
'Vales' concentrated, and finally pointed to one spot.
"Here. There's been people there recently. But I've got a bad feeling about it"
The Captain sighed, and Kayla spoke.
"We could try our luck in some of the othe-"
"Our luck? Notice anything about our luck lately? We need certainty. I don't want to stay here longer than we need to. We'll head there, but we'll be careful. Orlov get the weapons ready."
Orlov nodded and left, meanwhile Burne got into the pilot's seat and manuevered the ship to land.
10-03-2005, 08:46 PM
The man looked up as he heard pistons firing and a large thumping noise coming from one of the above landing pads.
The fly has flown into the spider's web.
He smiled darkly to himself. Picking up the part that he had lying next to him, he got up and headed towards the noise. Eventually, he came out to the top level. Just up a flight of stairs, there was a landing dock, and what else but a ship there. The man watched from the shadows as the crew disembarced. They had heavy weapons and armor. This would get interesting.
Let's see them shoot what they can't see.
Immediatly, the man was cloaked in the Darkness itself and disappeared from sight. Now, even if the lights in the room were turned on, he would only be found by a Force sensative. If the boy was with them, it wouldn't be a problem. But if he wasn't...
((This'll be my last post for the night...))
10-04-2005, 02:44 PM
As they walked off the ramp 'Vales' spoke.
"I got a bad feeling about this."
"Burne, Kayla, stay with the ship. If we're not back in fifteen minutes, take off, get help, and come back to rescue us."
"What? And risk our shiny new ship?" Asked Burne. They laughed.
"You better risk more than that, else I'll kick your ass" Said Orlov.
Orlov, 'Vales' and Reynolds headed toward the factory, meanwhile the ship's ramp closed again.
10-04-2005, 04:30 PM
From where he hid, the man watched as three of the crew members came down the stairs into the room and the loading ramp of the ship close up again.
Only three? This will be too easy.
He stayed in hidding as the trio entered the room, searching in the darkness to find a way to turn the lights on. Even if they did find the switch, they would find that it wouldn't provide them with any light...
"Damn!" the man who appeared to be the captain swore. "Alright, use the sublights."
Immediatly, three beams of high-powered light sprouted from the edges of their gun barrels. Illuminated by the light, the man caught a glimps of each of the three crew members and smiled. It was him. The boy was with them.
"Spread out and get searching."
As the captain walked towards the place where the man stood, he snickered. The captain must have heard because he turned in his direction.
"Looking for this?" the man said, unshielding himself and holding the part up. The captain jumped back in surprise.
10-04-2005, 04:34 PM
The captain recognized the man, and immediately aimed his gun at him. Orlov and 'Vales' did the same.
"What do you want?"
10-04-2005, 04:38 PM
The man grinned evily. Almost insanly. "Oh Captain, Captain. What kind of welcome is this for an old friend?"
Turning towards the boy, he said, "As for what I want...two things. You tell me. Oh, and by the way, might I point out that this is the only part of its type in this factory? Ha, on Mustafar for that matter."
10-04-2005, 04:40 PM
"Well, since we are, as you say, old friends I suppose you won't mind handing it over. "
10-04-2005, 04:41 PM
The man chuckled darkly. "You would think, wouldn't you? Sorry, but there are a...few things that I require. I get what I want, you get what you want. And I think we both know what I want."
10-04-2005, 04:48 PM
"Well, if you give us the part we can fly off, I can talk things over with my crew and we'll get back to-"
A small explosion occurred next to the man's foot.
Orlov, holding the smoking gun, shrugged.
10-04-2005, 05:12 PM
Tysyacha turned to Alyssa. "The sooner we can reach Yavin, the better.
I hope everything is all right with this ship--not that I expected it wouldn't
be!" She let out a rueful giggle. Why am I always trying to say the right
things, but it comes out all wrong? she asked herself and sighed lightly.
10-04-2005, 05:43 PM
(Hey guys, today (Oct. 4) is my birthday.)
Roarboar & Zaalbacca go to Corasaunt (sp?) to get their ship repaired by trading the minerals & get the HK-47 unit buffed, waxed, & repaired. They are soon ready to see the jedi council about their encounter on Mustfar.
10-04-2005, 05:44 PM
10-04-2005, 06:17 PM
"Aparently your reflexes are about as accurate as you are smart." the man mummbled.
"I'm growing impatient, Captain. Give me the boy and get out of here or by my ancestors Lord Elron and Lady Tysyacha, I'll--"
10-04-2005, 06:38 PM
"Tysyacha?" Interrupted Orlov. Reynolds glared at him. "I'm sorry, cap, but she ain't worth getting one of us killed, or worse. " He turned to the man. "I've got some info that just may be worth that part. "
10-04-2005, 09:24 PM
"You recognize the name?" Suddenly, the man was all ears. "Tell me, what is this information?"
10-04-2005, 09:30 PM
"Orlov" Said Reynolds angrily, but Orlov continued.
"We picked up someone else by that name......a relative of yours probably."
10-04-2005, 09:53 PM
"Really?" he thought for a while. This could easily be some sort of trickery so that they could get their parts, but he didn't sense any deception coming from the man. And he highly doubted that he had the advanced training needed to sheild his intentions. "Very well. I'll cut you a deal." the man said, "You let me travel with you so I can meet this...Tysyacha, and I will give you your part. No ticket abord the S.S.Retard, no part. Get it? Got it? Good."
10-04-2005, 10:00 PM
"You want passage on my ship, you're gonna have to work for it. It's going to take more than just a part. " Said Reynolds. "So tell me, other than waving a lightstick around, threatening people, and moving stuff around, is there anything you can do?"
10-04-2005, 11:04 PM
Tysyacha suddenly went up and bowed to Orlov.
"I had once heard of a man, a fearless Mandalorian called Canderous,
who was a master tactician and veteran of war. If I remember correctly,
Canderous accompanied the infamous Darth Revan to the worlds beyond
the Outer Rim. You remind me of this legend, if I do say so myself."
She cleared her throat. "Now to my point. I don't want to put you
or your crew in any danger, either necessary or nuisance. Canderous
would not suffer either, and in you I see his strength and bravura.
Perhaps it would be better if I returned to my exile, so that you,
your captain, Reynolds, and the rest of your crew can warp as far
away from the Nihilites as possible. You'll want to do so before long!"
10-04-2005, 11:10 PM
((Tysyacha... I think you and I are headed to Yavin IV in Alyssa's ship... not with JM's characters.))
10-05-2005, 12:18 AM
"Is there anything I can do? With my knowlage of the Force, its more like what can't I do."
10-05-2005, 05:49 PM
Orlov looked taken aback, knowing his plan had backfired. He turned to the captain.
"You can't seriously be considering bringing him on the ship!"
The captain shrugged. "You brought this on us, now you deal with it." He turned back to Elron "So you have no experience with ships, do ya?"
10-05-2005, 06:13 PM
"Um...that's a no. Though, looking at the way you guys seem to fight, I think you could use and extra gun. Or a saber for that matter."
10-05-2005, 06:18 PM
"Kid, you haven't seen us fight."
The captain nodded.
"All right. You can come along. But let's make this clear, you try to pull anything, and I mean anything" He gestured at 'Vales' "And you're going to find yourself on the wrong side of the airlock. Is that clear?"
10-05-2005, 06:25 PM
"Crystal, sir!" Elron said, throwing a mocking salute, "Anything for the almighty captain!"
10-05-2005, 06:31 PM
"Now give us the part and get your ass on the ship. Things could get very unfriendly in this system soon."
10-05-2005, 06:37 PM
"Schutta," Elron whispered as he went by, slapping the part down in the captain's outstretched hand, and proceeded past him. Up the stairs and right up to the ship. Elron whacked the loading ramp several times before shouting, "Hey! Dunderheads! Open up!"
10-05-2005, 06:44 PM
A small hatch on the ramp opened up, and the barrel of a blaster rifle came out of it.
The captain said "It's okay, Burne. Let him in."
The hatch closed and the ramp slowly opened back up. Standing at the top was Burne, blaster in hand, glaring at Elron
10-05-2005, 06:51 PM
"Oh you spacer types are always so polite." Elron said sarcastically. He moved up the ramp, stopping in front of Burne, he said, "Look, Bantha-breath, I'm joining up with your little group of trigger-happy smugglers. At least for now. You don't like it? Well, then that's too damn bad."
From ashes and fire shall be awoken...
10-05-2005, 07:26 PM
Burne muttered a curse at Elron, and the captain approached him.
"Get this to Kayla, and tell her. I'll give him the tour of the ship."
10-05-2005, 08:56 PM
Zaalbacca and Roarboar fly around in space. "Commentary: What do you want me to do master? asked HK-47. "1. Shut up. 2. Stay still. 3. Do what I say." Roarboar said."Response: OK, master." Says HK-47."I'm detecting a ship and a powerful force aura. I also sense that dark jedi who thinks he is the most powerful jedi ever." Zaalbacca says immidately. "HK, get into the turret and shoot that ship." Roarboar says. "Commentary: On my way master." HK says." You get in to Roarboar." Zaalbacca says. The Undertaker starts firing upon the Fable.
10-05-2005, 09:01 PM
As Elron and the Captain continued along one of the ship's hallways, the ship gave a stong lurch. Elron stummbled as the Captain was tossed against a wall.
"Uh-oh." he said as an alarm went off, "That can't be good."
10-05-2005, 09:03 PM
((Tysyacha... before you post in here check your PMs :) ))
10-05-2005, 09:07 PM
Tysyacha, aboard Alyssa's ship, felt confused. The owner seemed to have
taken the time to step out of the airlock and take a very long space-piddle,
even though there were highly advanced chemical toilets aboard the vessel.
Where was Alyssa? Syscha wanted to tell her more about the Nihilites, or else
to find out more from her new mentor about becoming stronger in the Force.
10-05-2005, 09:11 PM
((Heh... the ship is a two seat fighter and Alyssa should be sitting right in front of you, waiting for you to confirm that you really want to go to Yavin IV :p ))
10-05-2005, 09:17 PM
Alyssa suddenly tapped Tysyacha on the shoulder. "Ready?" she asked again.
"Oh, yes, yes!", the girl cried, realizing that she had been deeply entranced
with visions of the other ship...the crew and the captain, and the strange
dark man aboard. What was happening now, and who would gain the advantage?
10-05-2005, 09:20 PM
Alyssa grinned. "Did you pay attention to any of my ramblings about the ship and..." She chuckled. "Oh, never mind." She activated the hyperspace ring and the little ship sped away.
10-05-2005, 09:24 PM
Even though hyperspace was one of the best technologies available
for carrying space explorers from Point A to Point B in the fastest
possible manner, it still allowed plenty of 'downtime,' as the common
folk sometimes called it. Tysyacha smiled ruefully and bowed her head.
"I'm sorry," she apologized quickly. "For some odd reason, I thought I
was aboard another ship for a moment, and the captain and crew were
basically ignoring me! Now that I'm both physically and mentally aboard
THIS vessel, can you tell me about the Jedi Order? Is there a Council
anymore? I hear tales of a Jedi Council, but does such a thing exist now?"
10-05-2005, 09:27 PM
The captain cursed in huttese, and took out his comlink
"KAYLA! That part installed yet?"
"Gonna need some more time captain"
"Time we don't have. You keep working on that, everyone else battle stations." He gave a grin to Elron. "Time to show us what you're made of. Get to the turret and start firing."
The captain started headed toward the cockpit, and he heard the man ask where the turret was.
"If you can't find it, get off my ship." Yelled the captain. He arrived at the cockpit and spoke to wash.
"Can you shake them off?"
"It's gonna take some work captain. There's nowhere to hide."
"Do whatever it takes."
10-05-2005, 09:33 PM
"This is Zaalbacca and Roarboar of the The Undertaker." Zaalbacca said to the ship using the communications system."Surrender immidately and we will tow you to a Republic space station where we will take you in for judgement from the jedi council." Roarboar says.
10-05-2005, 09:36 PM
"On what charges?!" Demanded Reynolds.
10-05-2005, 09:37 PM
"And that explains why you ignored me," Alyssa said good-naturedly. "As for the Jedi Order... you're not talking to the most knowledgeable person in the galaxy... my master wasn't truly Jedi, though I myself am considered one... but that's a long story for another time."
"Yes, there is still a Council," she went on. "But it's a divided council. Luke Skywalker, Kyle Katarn, Caitlin Bryce, Erica West, and Nadira DelCarr make up what is known as the Original Council. They are the ones with a less strict approach to the Jedi Order. The others are called the High Council by nearly everybody, but the Original Council has begun to call them the Bureaucratic Council... and that title has trickled down into the mouths of younger Jedi as well... but they usually call the two councils the OC and the BC."
"The BC is by far the larger of the two councils," Alyssa told her companion. "So my master and her friends, the Sith Hunters are not quite as welcome on Yavin IV as they used to be... but have you heard of the Sith Hunters?" She shook her head. "Never mind that... we'll get into that story later." She smiled. "Anything else you'd like to know about?"
10-05-2005, 09:39 PM
"On the charges that there is a dark jedi aboard." Roarboar says. "What is your answer?" Zaalbacca asked.
10-05-2005, 09:40 PM
"My goddamn answer is that I don't remember it being against the law to have stowaways."
10-05-2005, 09:44 PM
"Yes," said Tysyacha, and she stretched out her soft, pale hands
for Alyssa to take. "Tell me. I must know how strong I am in the
Force now, because I don't want to waste time on possible--
training--if there is no way I can be expected to complete all of it."
Syscha meant Jedi training, and Alyssa probably knew that her young
passenger meant Jedi training. How would she respond to this request?
10-05-2005, 09:57 PM
"Well sorry, but I'm a bit new to this in case you hadn't noticed." he mumbled as the captain rushed away.
He ran from corridor to corridor until he finally found the lift to the turret.
He took the lift up and sat in the gunner seat. Putting the ear peice in his ear and hooking up to the interface, he mummbled, "Well, there's a first time for everything."
The screen before him turned on and he swivled the controls around, getting a feel for the controls. The ship shuddered again.
"What the hell are you doing up there?!? Get shooting damn it!!" came the Captain's roar through the ear peice. Elron winced at the volume.
"Keep your shirt on, I'm getting to it."
He sighted, took aim, and pulled the trigger, letting two bursts fly from the gun barrel. The first missed but the second hit dead on.
"Haha! What do you say to that? Still think I'm worthless?" he mocked into the mike.
"Yeah, we'll see about that!" came the Captain's irritated reply.
10-05-2005, 09:59 PM
"Hold on to your-" Burne began, and suddenly flipped the ship over, barely dodging two more shots that had come.
10-05-2005, 10:03 PM
"Holy ****!" Elron swore as the ship shuddenly flipped. At that exact moment he was getting prepped to fire again, but with the sudden role, the shot missed by a mile.
"Mind warning me before you do that?!? Damn it!"
10-05-2005, 10:08 PM
"Sure, in fact, why don't we also ask these guys to warn us before they shoot and to stay still so you can hit them." Said the captain sarcastically. "I thought you said the force would help you with that."
10-05-2005, 10:10 PM
"Well it doesn't frickin' help when a retard flips us around just as I'm about to fire!!" Elron said exasperatedly, letting loose another shot.
10-05-2005, 10:11 PM
"Of the two of you that 'retard' is the only one doing his job correctly."
10-05-2005, 10:20 PM
"Yeah? Well, maybe you'd like to get up here and show me how its done, eh?" he said as he fired off another round, this one burrying itself into the hull of the opposite ship.
10-05-2005, 10:23 PM
"Yeah? Well I'm a little busy right now, what with the fact that these guys are after us because of YOU!"
10-05-2005, 10:24 PM
"Hey, you didn't have to accept my offer!"
10-05-2005, 10:28 PM
Alyssa took the girl's hands in hers and smiled. "No training is ever wasted. But as you insist..." she stared intently into Tysyacha's eyes, focusing not on them, but seeming to see past them. Her smile deepened and her eyes refocused.
"Skywalker... Master Skywalker would love to welcome you into training," she said. Then she groaned. "But the BC is going to hate the idea." She chuckled. "Makes me wonder if they really hold to the 'fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering' stuff they always spout."
10-05-2005, 10:30 PM
Tysyacha was puzzled, but intrigued. "What do you mean, Alyssa?"
10-05-2005, 10:31 PM
"Screw you, you know we had no choice."
10-05-2005, 10:34 PM
"What, did you think that I had actually searched the entire frickin planet to make sure I had the only part? If you did, then you're a hell of a lot more gullible than I thought!"
10-05-2005, 10:35 PM
"What puzzles you?" Alyssa asked.
10-05-2005, 10:36 PM
"The Undertaker lost some of it's shields." Roarboar said. "Keep firing. Aim for the airlock." Zaalbacca ordered.
10-05-2005, 10:42 PM
"We don't have that kind of time." He switched channels. "Kayla how's it going?"
"It'd be going a lot better if we weren't moving so much."
"We'd be spacedust if we weren't moving so much. "
The ship suddenly shook hard.
"Where the hell did they hit us?"
"Next to the airlock cap." answered Burne
The captain swore.
"They're aiming for the damn airlock. Burne, you remember the manuevers you told us about, specifically the Womp rat turn?"
"You can't be serious."
"They hit the airlock, we're done for."
Burne nodded, then spoke into the comm. "For the newbie up in the turrets, this is your warning."
The ship suddenly lurched to a complete stop, did a 180 and accelerated to maximum speed, heading straight toward the Undertaker
10-05-2005, 10:45 PM
"When you said you wondered if the Jedi really abode by their views on fear,
what did you mean? Why would the Bureaucratic Council, or the 'BC', as you
call it, hate the idea of my entering Jedi training? Are they afraid I'll fail?"
10-05-2005, 10:47 PM
"Gee, thanks." Elron said as the ship did a flip. "That doesn't help me not loose my lunch."
There was a huge shudder.
"What the hell was that, might I ask??" Elron bellowed into the mike.
"Our shields are failing, genius!! Less talking, more shooting!"
"Well sorry!" he mummbled. "Now then..." he said, focusing himself, "time to kick it into overdrive."
He pulled on the Force, allowing it to aim the turret, allowing it to pull the trigger, allowing it to direct the stream of plasma right up, through a hole in the Undertaker's sheilds, and blast straight into the hull.
"Hope that hurt!" he yelled, as if the crew could here him.
10-05-2005, 10:48 PM
"We will stop if you surrender.'" Roarboar says. "Response: I won't." Says HK. "Dang, That's a big hole they blew in us." Zaalbacca says surprised.
10-05-2005, 10:49 PM
"Well gee I wonder what Master Skywalker'll say when you tell him that you pulverized the ship WITH HIS FREAKIN' PACKAGE ON IT!" Yelled Reynolds
10-05-2005, 10:54 PM
"Ah, that," Alyssa answered slowly, cautiously. "Well... they've adopted the Old Jedi Order's views of how the Jedi should work... and in that is included a hesitance to train older students... especially ones who've had prior exposure to the Dark Side."
A pause. "But look on the bright side; the OC can often outtalk the BC and when they can't, the Sith Hunters frighten them into submission..." she chuckled. "But really, the Sith Hunters are rather friendly..."
10-05-2005, 10:55 PM
"Shoot, shot us in the shield generator." Zaalbacca says. "Now what?" asks Roarboar. "We jump to Yavin 4. We will meet again." Zaalbacca says to the Fable. They jump towards Yavin 4.
10-05-2005, 10:58 PM
Reynolds and the crew cheered
"Whaddya know, newbie. You might be worth something after all. Burne, when Kayla finishes jump us to hyperspace, I'm gonna contact Alyssa and tell her. If these guys were jedi, she can help us."
10-05-2005, 11:00 PM
"Sith Hunters?" Tysyacha gulped. "Once they hear about the Nihilites,
these Hunters of which you speak will consider the Sith to be Younglings!"
"Maybe so," said Alyssa, "but it seems as if your former Masters are
also Sith, degenerate to the ultimate degree. Am I right about this?"
Not wanting to, Tysyacha nodded. She'd wanted to give Alyssa
some hope, some reason to want to fight them, but what good was
it if the hope you gave, and the reasons, turned out to be false?
"Anything else you'd like to ask?", smiled the captain obligingly.
"Can Jedi fall in love now? I have kind of a crush on Ben Skywalker already."
Stupid, stupid, stupid, thought Tysyacha, but it's the truth.
10-05-2005, 11:04 PM
<It's The Undertaker, ForceFightWMe12.>
They exit hyperspace near Tysyacha & Alyssa. "Please don't shoot us." Zaalbacca said on the comunications system.
10-05-2005, 11:05 PM
"Thank you, its nice to get some appreciation sometimes, you know?" he said. With that, he turned off the turret and rode the lift back down.
As he entered the cockpit, he said, "What does someone need to do to get some food in this place?"
10-05-2005, 11:08 PM
<I would like to know the name of the f***ing ship your on jokemaster.>
10-05-2005, 11:09 PM
((Ship is the Fable))
"Come on down." He led Elron down to a small kitchen, where the rest of the crew was waiting. It was a tradition, after a narrow escape. Burne held out a bottle of ale.
The captain popped it open and everyone filled their glass. They raised it up and Burne spoke up.
"To the new guy, who through his ineptness still managed to hit their generator!"
10-05-2005, 11:24 PM
As everyone laughed, Elron couldn't help but smile. "Aha, aha, very funny, now shut up and drink!"
10-05-2005, 11:26 PM
"Smartest thing's that ever come out of your mouth." Said the captain, and they all drank.
10-06-2005, 12:00 AM
Aboard Alyssa's ship, Tysyacha suddenly tugged on her captain's sleeve.
"Hey! Look! There's another ship that's come into hyperspace near us!"
Alyssa could feel the tension in Syscha's body, and her question: Friend or foe?
10-06-2005, 12:08 AM
The crew drank and laugh. The captain told stories from his days in the Imperial Navy, about an officer who got the medals and rank marks stripped off his uniform right before the Grand Admiral visited. The crew laughed.
"And nobody warned him?" Asked Kayla
"Nobody could, we tried to, but he was so proud of it that he wouldn't listen to us."
"Well, the admiral saw him, said he was proud that he knew how to consort among the crew and he got a promotion."
Kayla stood up. "I'd better go back to work. I'm almost done."
"Great, I'll contact Alyssa." Said the captain.
10-06-2005, 12:10 AM
((Tysyacha, have you read any of the information available on the Sith Hunters? (looks back at what I just wrote) heh... that makes it sound like they're actually involved in SW canon... but in reality, they're creations of mine... I'll PM you later about them.))
Alyssa tensed and reached for the comm. "Identify yourself," she said.
10-06-2005, 04:36 PM
Later on, when everyone had gotten back to doing what they were supposed to, Elron wandered into the engine room where Kayla was working on replacing the part.
Leaning against the door frame, he asked with a smile, "Mind if drop in?"
10-06-2005, 05:43 PM
"We are Zaalbacca and Roarboar of the Republic and this is our ship, the The Undertaker." Zaalbacca said on the comm. "We just got away from a ship called the Fable. It blew up our shield generator." Roarboar says. "Can you help us?" Zaalbacca asks.
10-06-2005, 06:23 PM
Kayla stood up, looking surprised, then embarassed at her reaction.
"No, not at all come in."
The captain sat in his chair in the cockpit and contacted Alyssa, he had saved he ship's code from their previous exchange.
"Hey, jedi girl, you there?"
10-06-2005, 06:46 PM
"Zaalbacca and Roarboar," Alyssa said. "This is Jedi Knight Alyssa Renolin. My ship is too small for a name and cannot hold any repair parts. Your best bet is to hope you can make it to Yavin IV and land safely. If not, may the Force be with you."
Then the comm station beeped again. "Undertaker, I'm getting another transmission. Please hold."
She flipped a switch and heard, "Hey, Jedi girl, you there?" She grinned.
"Reading you loud and clear, Fable," she answered. "You'll never guess who I just talked to."
10-06-2005, 06:48 PM
"Would it be two trigger-happy furball jedi-wannabes with a broken shield generator?"
10-06-2005, 06:50 PM
"Hey, we heard that." Roarboar said on the comm.
10-06-2005, 06:54 PM
"Oh give them a little credit," Alyssa said, trying hard not to giggle. "They're a bit past the wannabe stage of Jedi training."
"Oh, and Wookies?" she went on. "As I said, your best bet is to get to Yavin IV without breaking apart. Good luck." She cut that connection and went back to the connection to the Fable.
"And yes, they're the ones I was referring to," she said. "Anyway... I believe you called. What can I do for you?"
10-06-2005, 06:55 PM
"Well, seeing as I didn't exaggerate or lie, I don't give a womp rat's droppings"
To Alyssa he said.
"Well, we'd like, for one, some protection against the jedi. We picked up a passenger, you see.....and they might have some problems with each other."
10-06-2005, 06:58 PM
"Koakian Lizard Monkey." Zaalbacca says to the Fable on the comm. They drift towards Yavin 4.
10-06-2005, 06:59 PM
"Oh?" Alyssa said, raising an eyebrow. "By passenger, I'm assuming you don't mean Mr. Vales, whom you did introduce as a passenger... you've added another? What's this one like?"
10-06-2005, 07:02 PM
"The bast**** they put on their ship is named Elron, named after the Dark Lord Elron." Roarboar says to the ship near them.
10-06-2005, 07:02 PM
"Bad-tempered, cocky, mild tendencies toward evil. "
10-06-2005, 07:04 PM
"Ah, just the type of person the BC hates," Alyssa chuckled. "But they can be made to submit. Let me talk to the OC before you let him off the ship."
((And I am left wondering how the hell I ended up with the BC and the OC as seperate parts of the Jedi Council :p ))
10-06-2005, 07:06 PM
At this revelation, Tysyacha cried, "Gaah! Is there any chance he could
be one of the Nihilites? Or is he just one of the regular Sith?" She blushed.
"By 'regular', I meant 'traditional', Captain!" She didn't want to insult a ward
of the Dark Side if he happened to be listening through the comlink right then.
10-06-2005, 07:08 PM
"Erm......he's not Nihlite, he seems to be a hermit, a big drinker, and he's lucky in a turret."
10-06-2005, 07:10 PM
"Attribute the luck to the Force," Alyssa shrugged. "As for hermit and big drinker... well, those aren't a surprising pair to find together." She chuckled.
10-06-2005, 07:13 PM
"Yeah, now let me ask, what the hell is the BC?"
10-06-2005, 07:18 PM
"Bureaucratic Council," Alyssa explained. "Sorry... I don't suppose I can expect everybody to keep up with inside jokes and titles. You've heard of the OC, though? The Original Council?"
((The answer is most likely yes... Luke, Kyle, Caitlin, Erica, and Nadira have been known as the OC for quite some time and it wouldn't be too far out to think that a lot of the galaxy has heard the phrase.))
10-06-2005, 07:22 PM
"Yeah, nice to know someone's on our side." He sighed. "Can you at least guarantee we won't get shot at when we get there?"
10-06-2005, 07:22 PM
The two wookies land on Yavin 4. "Looks like a lot of damage there." the mechanic said. Later, it was upgraded, given new parts, and repaired."There you go. Good as new." the mechanic said. "thanks. How much?" Roarboar asked. "2000k." the mechanic said. "You will put it on the house." Zaalbacca said using Jedi Mind Trick."I will put it on the house," the mechanic responded. They launch back into space.
10-06-2005, 07:26 PM
"The Jedi would recognize the Fable, wouldn't they?" Alyssa asked. "No, I don't think they'd shoot at it. Let me rephrase that... I know they wouldn't shoot. They don't unless they know for sure the ship approaching is an enemy ship. You'll be fine."
10-06-2005, 07:29 PM
"Luke would, I don't know about the others. See, usually I wouldn't ask, but after those two...."
10-06-2005, 07:33 PM
"They probably follow the BC," Alyssa told him. "Anything that has a slight trace of Darkness is taboo... for that matter, the BC really doesn't like me much either. But the OC keeps them pretty well in line and when they can't my former master and her friends frighten the arrogance right out of them."
((JM, if we can get Flamehart in here, maybe we can demonstrate that fact in the not too near future of the thread :p ))
10-06-2005, 07:37 PM
((Hm....I'll PM him. ))
"So, your former master and her friends frighten the jedi, but aren't part of the OC, interesting."
10-06-2005, 07:39 PM
"Ever heard anything of the Legend of the Sith Hunters?" Alyssa asked. "Long story, but rather interesting. My master was their leader... still is if you want to count the three of them still living."
10-06-2005, 07:46 PM
"I'd heard rumors they were back, 'cept of course it was supposed to be all ten of them."
10-06-2005, 07:55 PM
"Only three of them really survived," Alyssa told him. "And they tend to hang out together now... like they did in the ancient days."
10-06-2005, 08:01 PM
"So how'd you get the honor of being Riebe's apprentice?"
10-06-2005, 08:04 PM
"I reminded her of herself," Alyssa answered. "And it wasn't right away that it happened either... I went back to the Academy, back to being my old, rather disrespectful, and runaway self. Then, I ran into her again and she realized that the group teaching of the New Jedi Order just wasn't working for me."
10-06-2005, 08:04 PM
Elron smiled and walked in. He went over to where she was working, leaning against the machine and looking into the opening in a panel.
"Um...Okay, I know I'm going to sound like a total green-horn here, but what exactly are you doing? It looks like you're having trouble."
(Hahaha, very funny people, very funny. Everyone's a critic...jkjk:D))
10-06-2005, 08:14 PM
Kayla smiled and began speaking rapidly.
"I'm trying to install the compression coil for the hyperdrive, but this model is too outdated, it doesn't fit in the slot the other one left, so now I have to reroute it through the suspension which means that I also have to make the transmission get extra power, so these cables" she pointed "Now have to be reconnected in a different order."
10-06-2005, 08:19 PM
((Poor Elron probably didn't understand a word of that... especially with Kayla talking fast :p ))
"We're almost to Yavin IV," Alyssa told Tysyacha. Then, to Reynolds, she said, "We'll see you on the ground."
10-06-2005, 08:27 PM
((You guys post before I can even finish typing mine! Jeeze! lol))
Elron scratched his head. "Umm...okay, I'm going to pretend for a second that I understood that..." he caught her smile out of the corner of his eye and fought the smile that was creaping onto his own lips. "Anything I can do to help? You know, without the chance of me blowing us all to bits."
10-06-2005, 08:29 PM
((What can I say... I type fast... and check the RPs often :p ))
10-06-2005, 08:31 PM
((I do, like every two seconds, but I go to type one response to one RPG, click 'preview post' and there's another post there. Maybe I"m just a little slow :D ))
10-06-2005, 08:33 PM
((I play a lot of FPSs, keep my keyboard fingers fast.))
Kayla smiled embarassed. "Sorry, I've been around engines all my life. Captain says I probably know more about ships than their designers. Here, stand by that switch. " She pointed. "And when I tell you to, flip it."
10-06-2005, 08:34 PM
"I see..." Elron said, watching as she reached back into the open panel, "Alright...waiting for the go-ahead."
((Heh, so I see.))
10-06-2005, 08:42 PM
((Yeah, play a little unreal tournament on a 64 person server in a tournament, that gets your speed up))
Kayla got back, worked on the engine for a few seconds, and said. "Aaaannd.....NOW!"
10-06-2005, 08:46 PM
Even as the last syllable left her lips, Elron flipped the switch. The engine whirred. "Question...what did we just do?"
((Hey guys, I'll be back a little later, I gotta go do something...))
10-06-2005, 09:01 PM
…On Yavin IV; young Skywalker stood in front of the Jedi council (the OC as wild jedi named them)…he was telling them about Tysyacha and the Nihilites but not about what did he discovered in Kalahan…
"and what would a jedi do in Kalahan?" master Kyle asked
"me don’t know master Katarn, she must be on her way to the academy with Alyssa and we shall know when she arrive…" he answered obviously trying to hide something…
"I am talking about you Ben…" Kyle said
"I…I had a vision about Kalahan, master katarn, thus I went there…but sadly, I've found nothing…" he said keeping his eye contact with Kyle's to hide his lies…
"good Ben…" said Luke to end the discussion, Ben thought that his father might be able to see beyond his lies, it was the first time his mouth utter lies and his heart beating reflect the fear and the nervousness he felt, thus he decided to leave before one of the masters exposed him….
"Wait Ben…" master Luke Skywalker called him
"What master…" he said formally…
"The council had noticed your growing skills…even though you still young…we've decided to give you the rank of a Jedi Master, and thus from now on, you are on this council…take your seat Master Ben Skywalker…" master Katarn said
"And I proudly accept this honor masters"
Ben felt happy like never before, it was his wish to be on the Jedi Council, but this might stop him from finishing his mission…the mission that until now he don’t know its real essence, his enemy in the myth were the Yuuzhan Vong, but now he has already destroyed them, could it be the nihilite this mysterious woman told him about… a lot of question struggled in his mind with no answers therein…then he felt something familiar…a feeling he had felt before...on Kalahan…
10-06-2005, 09:20 PM
"You're a welcome addition, Ben," Caitlin Bryce said warmly. "We've had our eyes on you for quite some time... though the BC will probably throw a fit when they hear of it."
She chuckled and her former apprentices Erica and Nadira joined in the laugh.
((The three other Jedi on the OC are my characters, so try not to control them too much... Korfredonn, you did fine... just giving everybody a warning. Caitlin, Erica, and Nadira are mine... Just so you know, all three of them are older women now... Caitlin was in training just before Episode I. Erica went through training between Ep I and II. Nadira was trained and expelled from the Jedi Order during that time as well... this would put Caitlin around 70-ish, Erica in her late 50s-early 60s and Nadira in her late 40s-early 50s.))
10-06-2005, 09:47 PM
"We just fixed the hyperdrive."
She hit the comm button on the wall.
"Hyperdrive's working now, hit it Burne."
The ship went into lightspeed almost immediately.
The man had followed the hovercraft's trail on foot. He saw the he was right to do so when it ended abruptly. He wasn't surprised at the abrupt end, and he saw the marks of two ships on the ground. A large craft and a smaller one. He guessed that the servant girl would've gone in the larger ship. Luckily it was a rare model, there would be almost no chance of chasing the wrong ship. He sent a signal, and soon a shuttle arrived to pick him up. He boarded it, and spoke to the officers onboard.
"Call our superiors. Tell them she's gone, but she left a trail."
10-06-2005, 09:58 PM
"Alright, finally we're getting somewhere!" Elron said with a smile.
10-06-2005, 10:10 PM
She wondered wether it was an appropriate question and decided to ask, if only to satisfy her own curiousity.
"I'm curious....how does someone end up living on a planet like Mustafar?"
10-07-2005, 12:14 AM
Elron smiled a rather bitter smile. Before he began, he crossed his arms, leaning against the engine once more.
"To tell the truth, I'm not sure myself. All that I know about my family's history is from the holocrons that were left to me.
"I am a descendant of the original Lord Elron, that much is clear. From what I could gather...it was either him or one of his companions who took his and Lady Tysyacha's sons to two different remote planets and hid them there. I was fated to be the great-grandson or something or other of the son left on Mustafar. My parents died when I was quite young. I was left with only the ancient HK-47 droid that had been there ever since I can remember. After a while, it too broke down, and I found I could no longer rely on it. So, I was left to fend for myself. I began to teach myself the ways of the Force. The holocrons were my teachers and that complex was my temple. I had lived that way ever since...until your captain came and picked me up." he finished with a smile. He carefully stepped around his prior experience with 'Vales'.
"And what about you?" he asked, "How does a charming girl like yourself end up with a crew of nimrods like this?"
10-07-2005, 01:13 PM
(OOC: Again, I'm going on a little mini-vacation to visit my aunts and
cousins, who live four hours south of my house. I might post when I'm
at my Aunt Alice's, if I get the time. In the meantime, ForceFight, I give
you permission to put the Konyets ending on "The Lawful Sith",
and feel free to take over Tysyacha in this thread if you want. Good
luck, and I'll probably see you on Tuesday. :))
10-07-2005, 01:44 PM
((Time to add another element to this story:))
The room was dark, its occupant motionless. She stared at the wall in front of her, though she could not see it and a million thoughts poured through her head. Suddenly, her communicator beeped. A small sigh escaped her lips and she took it from her belt.
"What is it?" she asked quietly.
"The BC won't..." Luke began.
"Say no more now," Riebe Sothe interrupted. "We'll be there in a few minutes."
She stood and turned, waving a hand to open the door. Jack 'Jokemaster' Bauer and Strider 'Craig' Flamehart were lounging on couches on the other side.
"BC trouble again," Riebe said. "Skywalker's going to explain it to us when we get there."
10-07-2005, 04:50 PM
"Can we please kill one of them this time? That should keep them complacent for a while." Said jokemaster with a grin.
"The ship." Said Kayla. "Very few of these working around, I can keep it running pretty easily, and life's interesting."
10-07-2005, 04:55 PM
Riebe chuckled. "Bad Jack. No cookie."
Alyssa's fighter swept down for a landing in the Jedi Academy's hangar bays.
"We're here," Alyssa told Tysyacha. "Until we get your presence straightened out with the BC, you have to stay with me at all times. Ok?"
10-07-2005, 05:02 PM
"What? I'm pretty sure it's the will of the force. I specifically remember the force telling me I had to rid the galaxy of every retarded bureaucrat in the galaxy. Or it may have been the spice talking."
10-07-2005, 05:06 PM
"When you hear stuff like that, automatically assume it's the spice," Riebe told him. "These retarded bureaucrats are the main portion of the Jedi Council... kill them, turn most of the Jedi against you." She tilted her head to one side. "Does that better filter what the spice was telling you?"
10-07-2005, 06:06 PM
"Let's go explore the Unknown parts to see what we can salvage." Zaalbacca said. "Hold on, let me at least put in some upgrades." Roarboar said. "Ok." Zaalbacca said.
10-07-2005, 06:09 PM
"I still think we should obey the spice. "
10-07-2005, 06:30 PM
"So the only reason you're traveling with these guys is because of this ship and they 'keep things interesting'?" Why did it feel like she wasn't telling him something? "C'mon, there's gotta be more to it than that."
((Bad Jack. No cookie." LOL!!!))
10-07-2005, 06:40 PM
"My only other option was working in a dockyard on Coruscant. I chose this"
10-07-2005, 06:58 PM
"I see..." he said, dropping the subject.
"Hey you two, get up here. We'll be at Yavin IV in a couple minutes..." the captain's voice rang out of the comm. panel on the wall.
"Alright, we'll be right up." Elron answered.
10-07-2005, 07:34 PM
"We'd better get up there. So what's your business on Yavin? "
10-07-2005, 07:54 PM
"There's, uh...someone that I need to meet..." he said.
10-07-2005, 08:31 PM
"Oh. A friend?" She asked, curious.
10-07-2005, 08:41 PM
"I...I'm not sure." he caught her cock an eyebrow out of the corner of his eye. "I know it sounds stupid, but...Well, from what I hear, she's a new part of your 'crew'. Her name's Tysyacha."
10-07-2005, 09:13 PM
"Oh, she's not part of the crew, we found her on Kalahan, I think she's going to train as a jedi. "
10-07-2005, 09:19 PM
"A Jedi..." Elron said thoughtfully, "Really...hm. I didn't know that..."
This could complicate things...
There was a moment of silence in which Elron just watched her. Continously staring...
10-07-2005, 09:37 PM
Kayla noticed him staring at her, but was determined to act like she didn't notice. Finally the ship lurched back out of hyperspace.
"We'll be landing in a few moments." Said Burne over the intercom as he turned the ship towards Yavin IV. Soon they landed at the academy, and the Captain, Orlov, 'Vales' and Burne all arrived in the cargo hold. They lowered the ramp.
"I guess this is your stop." Said Reynolds to Elron.
10-07-2005, 09:43 PM
"Yeah, this'll be it. It's been a pleasure nearly getting blown up with you."
10-07-2005, 09:58 PM
"Hey, I had everything under control."
10-07-2005, 10:04 PM
"Yeah, yeah, I'm sure you did, being the cool-headed captain you are." he said with a touch of sarcasim.
10-07-2005, 10:09 PM
The captain ignored the sarcasm.
"You got that right."
10-07-2005, 10:21 PM
((Uh...I'm guessing you guys won't be coming?))
10-07-2005, 10:52 PM
((They will be staying for a little while, they just don't know it yet.))
10-07-2005, 10:59 PM
Elron cast an eye over the crew, pausing for hardly a second on Kayla.
"Well..." he said, "I guess this is goodbye." he held up his hand in a half-wave, then left down the loading ramp.

…Ben shared the laugh with the other masters, then he stopped, though the smile still painted on his face, his mind was elsewhere…he was thinking about Tysyacha he felt that she is in danger…dark sights flashes in his mind, visions of her suffering…he returned to his senses as master Katarn called his name twice…
"Where have you been Master Skywalker?"
"Sorry master…but I was thinking….how would those Nihilites be stronger than original sith lords?...aren't they sith either?"
"Yes….but those are different…perhaps Mistress Bryce could give you more info about them…she is specialized in the era of the old republic…"
((hey guys…my posts might be limited for I had a car accident and I have to stay on the bed to get some rest, so miss me….for the other OC matsers…Luke and Kyle they are mine, ok..))
10-08-2005, 07:34 PM
Reynolds turned to the crew.
"C'mon, let's get this package to Skywalker."
He and Orlov opened the smuggler's hold, and pulled out the container. They began carrying it to the academy.
10-08-2005, 08:03 PM
"I'm not that old," Caitlin chuckled. "But I do know something of the Nihilites... or Nihilus, I should say." She proceeded to explain who Nihilus was and what period of history he was from. Then, she paused before continuing.
"As for the Nihilites," she went on after her pause. "I can only imagine that they are devoted to his teachings."
10-08-2005, 09:13 PM
Strider had been listening in through all of this and just simply nodded. He didn't seem talkative at this moment, but his sitting posture showed he was quite a confident person. He drew himself up and straightened out his blood red cloak and nodded, then spoke, "Let's not waste any time then," with a slight smirk, his hand resting on the lightsaber hilt on his belt.
10-08-2005, 09:39 PM
Alyssa led Tysyacha to the room the OC was meeting in and entered just in time to hear Caitlin finish her explanation of Nihilus.
"This is Tysyacha," she said after bowing to the OC. At that moment, the Sith Hunters entered the room and Caitlin's eyes lit up.
"Riebe!" she exclaimed, getting up from her chair and running to greet her old master. The women embraced and Caitlin said, "My goodness... after all these years you haven't changed a bit!"
"The years haven't been kind to you, Caitlin," Riebe chuckled. "You look old."
"I am old, Riebe," Caitlin laughed. "You've been altered... and given a gift of unnaturally long life."
"I know," Riebe answered quietly. "But it is no gift..."
She turned to Tysyacha. "And you, I suppose are the reason my companions and I are here."
"The BC doesn't want to let Tysyacha stay," Erica told her. Riebe nodded.
"Then the Sith Hunters will speak on her behalf," she said. "Tysyacha, allow me to introduce myself. I am Riebe Sothe, former leader of the Original Sith Hunters and leader of the three of us that still live."
10-08-2005, 09:40 PM
Well then...where to start looking. Elron thought as he strolled down a hallway. If I were the long-lost descendant of a Dark Lady, where would I be?
10-08-2005, 09:46 PM
"It's a gift and a curse." Said jokemaster after Riebe said 'It's no gift.'. To Tysyacha he said.
"Jack Bauer, the Sith Hunters' token goofball."
10-08-2005, 11:28 PM
Riebe laughed. "Oh, he may be the Jokemaster," she said, "but he's also better in a fight than he gives himself credit for."
10-08-2005, 11:46 PM
"I think that's the first time anyone's ever accussed me of giving myself too little credit."
10-09-2005, 01:03 AM
Strider laughed and shook his head, then regained his composure. He bowed towards them, "I am Strider Flamehart, the resident enigma of the group. Unlike my counterparts, I am enjoying my gift. I certainly see the opportunity to do much in the galaxy over the years."
10-09-2005, 01:15 AM
"But even you must still get annoyed by people still referring to you as 'kid'"
10-09-2005, 01:33 AM
Elron searched around for a while. But then remembered something Kayla had said. Tysyacha was going to be trained as a Jedi. And where would a Force Sensative go to see if she would be picked for training? The Jedi Council of course. He quickly threaded away through the coridors, finally arriving at the Council chambers.
10-09-2005, 01:57 AM
Strider shrugged and answered, "I'm over the age of an adult since this "gift" has been given, so as long as that's in effect I'm fine, I know I'm not a kid, whether or not I'm called one makes no difference. There's no veteran that can pull half the stuff I can."
10-09-2005, 12:24 PM
"Through this bit of conversation, you've probably figured out that we are not as young as we look," Riebe said, turning to Tysyacha. "Long story... Alyssa can tell you about it sometime maybe. But for now..."
She turned toward the OC. "Care to join the BC in the main Council Chamber? We'll be along in a moment."
Then, turning back to Tysyacha, Riebe said, "So your name is Tysyacha... that name is very familiar to me." She smiled. "A descendant of the Jedi Exile?" She chuckled. "Yes... it's no surprise the BC is throwing a fit over your arrival."
"Riebe," Alyssa said quietly. "Shouldn't we be getting over there?"
Riebe shrugged. "Oh, I suppose so."
She led the way out the door.
Meanwhile, the OC had taken their places in the main Council Chamber and the members of the BC were staring at Ben Skywalker, who had taken his seat there also.
"What's he doing here?" one of them demanded.
"He is a member of the Council," Caitlin answered.
"Since when?" another BC Jedi snapped.
"And since when are we left out of that decision making process?" a third hissed. Before the OC could answer, the Sith Hunters, Tysyacha and Alyssa entered the room, followed closely by Elron.
"How does it matter where you were?" Riebe asked in the booming voice she rarely used. The BC members flinched.
"You!" one of them gasped.
"What do you want?" another demanded, trying to sound unimpressed, but sounding terribly frightened.
"This is the girl, Tysyacha," Riebe said, stepping aside and allowing Tysyacha to step up next to her. "I want a show of hands on the Council. Who thinks she should not be allowed to stay?" All hands but those of the six on the OC were raised.
"Twenty to six," Riebe said thoughtfully. "Just as I suspected."
Suddenly, one of the BC members stood. Riebe turned to face him. "Yes? Is there something you wanted to say?"
The Jedi stared back at her and, in a sentence a gerbil would envy, he said, "Abkksuf! Swyeeeq! Boughat vehny capsshut."
"Well said, master Fooba," Riebe said. "Any others?"
She nodded to Jack and Strider and suddenly two other BC members stood...
10-09-2005, 12:38 PM
<I'm thinking of adding a new charecter of mine since this is after the Yuuzhan Vong invasion. Tell me what you think.>
Through the streets of Mos Eisly, Mon Rona walked. He kept wondering: What is my purpose? Who was I cloned from? Why do I feel empty? He walked to his Coralskipper and flew into space. He jumped to hyperspace while he wondered these. He exited near Yavin 4. His ship stood motionless.
10-09-2005, 12:42 PM
Elron watched the proceedings closely from where he stood at the back of the room.
They don't seem too enthralled that she's here... he thought. He smiled a bit ammusedly, I wonder what they would think if they found out who I was and that I was here too...
10-09-2005, 05:04 PM
The other BC member who stood up spoke.
"I have something to say!" He paused for a moment, then began singing. "Hello, my baby / hello, my honey / hello, my ragtime gal. / Send me a kiss by wire / baby, my hearts on fire / if you refuse me / honey, you'll lose me / then you'll be left alone / Oh baby, telephone and tell me I'm your own. " Then he sat back down and shut up.
"Catchy tune." Remarked jokemaster dryly.
10-09-2005, 06:11 PM
…Ben wasn't surprised by the BC reaction, he knew that they are narrow-minded, but yet, maybe their way was safer, still if they were the real rulers in the past times, Anakin Skywalker wouldn’t be trained…
"I'm on this counsel because I deserve it, maybe you can't see it right now, but you will someday…" he said confidently
He turned his face to look at his father who seemed to be proud of his son's courage, and then he looked at the BC and stood…
"As for Tysyacha, if the BC did not agree to train her, I will do and she will be my responsibility…"
what am I doing?, he thought, can I bear this heavy responsibility alone?...holy force, what was I thinking?...yet he knew deep inside of him that he wont allow the BC to ignore her, for some reason he don’t know…but maybe the force knows…
10-09-2005, 06:25 PM
Orlov and Reynolds burst into the room, carrying the container between them.
They looked around at the meeting in place. "We won't take long
They set the crate down between Ben and Luke.
"Ah. Finally. Okay, you" he pointed at Luke. "And you." He pointed at Ben. "This thing's for you, do with it what you will, now smile."
Orlov quickly snapped an image of them with the crate, and he and Reynolds started heading out.
"Glad that's done. Time to get paid. "
10-09-2005, 06:34 PM
"thanks Orlov" Master Luke said "you did well, you will get your payment from the Yavin station supervisor"
10-09-2005, 06:37 PM
Mon Rona landed his Coralskipper at the starport. He accidentaly(sp?) wandered into the Jedi Academy.
