View Full Version : A time of peace...

Star Wars: A Time of Peace...

It is a time of relative peace. Due to the actions of Revan, and later the Exile, the Old Republic has been stabilized. The Jedi Order has been re-established in the 200 years since the events of KOTOR II, and the tenets of the order have been examined, the flaws eliminated. Members swell the rebuilt order, and it seems Revan and the Exile had indeed eliminated the True Sith.
New mandalorian jedi specialize in a new form of battle, and few can stand against their might. All seems to be as it should. Until one day, a cloaked man appears in the Cauterized Sith and begins spouting madness.

Exerkis put down his drink and surveyed the bar. The 'Cauterized Sith' it was called, though what a sith was was beyond his comprehension. He touched his blaster rifle calmingly as he noticed a robed and hooded man walk into the bar, sit down at a table, and begin grumbling to himself. Exerkis didn't know why, but he felt a vague pulling towards the man, and sat down across from him. He began to hear the man's grumbling, "I don't know why I have to go through this, one of the Sedai! I mean seriously, secrecy may be important, but this time, I think Dran has gone too far!" Then he noticed Exerkis watching him. He looked startled for a moment, and then his face warmed considerably. He said, "Sorry about that, I didn't notice you were here." Exerkis began to feel the words he had heard slipping out of his mind, until he could not remember them at all. "Was there anything you wanted?"
"No," Exerkis replied, "You just looked kind of out-of-place here and I wondered if you wanted a tour of Nar Shadaa." Exerkis paused for a second. Why had he said that? And then again, what was he doing on Nar Shadaa. Today was getting stranger by the minute. He thought it had started when he saw the man walk into the cantina, but now he wasn't sure.
The man said, "Oh, sure, I'd love a tour. But I have to go now, here's my card." He saw a card and the letters TSD inscribed on it. When he looked up, the man was gone.

Morbo and his top men were having a fabulous time in the suite on the top floor of Morbo's skyscraper. Tables were spread out, men chatting, drinking, smoking cigarras, and watching the dancers. Morbo's guards were everywhere, making sure everything was in order. There was a path way that lead up in between the great hall, it started at the turbolift doors and at the end was Morbo on his throne stuffing handfulls of food in his mouth while sorrounded by an entourage of top security guards and twileks females. Suddenly, the turbolift doors the the great hall opened up. The crowd stopped to look at person within. He was a middle aged man, with sprouts of hair growing on his face. On his right hand was a rifle resting on his shoulder, and a lit cigarra in the other. The man walked down the pathway to Morbo.

"Ah, the man who makes sure I get my money. Welcome Ferrile!" Morbo said in Huttese

"The raid was successful. Those Durosians are dead, and I sent the drugs to your warehouse."

"Hahahaha. They should know better than to be stealing Morbo's drugs and trying to sell them on our turf! Lovak, give him his money." A twilek next to Morbo, obviously his secretary, tossed Ferrile a sack of credits. He counted the chips, 10,000 just like Morbo had promised. It brought a grin to Ferrile's face, and he brought the cigarra to his lips to take an inhalation.

"Now enjoy Ferrille, the drinks are free in Morbo's house!" Ferrille smiled and nodded, heading over to the bar to order a drink. He was practically Morbo's right hand man. They talked together on matters, Morbo would come to him for advice, and he also took on many jobs for the slimy Hutt.

03-07-2006, 09:53 PM
Karl was a little lost, after he left the shuttle he wondered Nar Shadaa for a couple of hours, finally he asked a Rodian"WHere's the Cantina?" "Just go ahead for sevral doors, second on your right." "Thanks" Said Karl as he moved on, now for some Juma and perhaps I'll meet someone on this metropolis.Ah here it is, The Cauterized Sith, what the hell does that mean? he wondere. As he entered a man wearing a dark hood rushed past him, thats rude. He wondered over to the bar and ordered some juma.

03-07-2006, 10:38 PM
He kicked down the door to Morbo's apartment, holding two severed heads. He dropped them on the floor, letting them roll underneath a table. "Here, i've done your dirty work, Morbo. Now give me my money you core slime," he said, walking up to the ugly Hutt, two men grabbing the heads and walking in behind him.

He dropped his hood to reveal a black face with distinct grey markings about it, 'round his horns and his ears, especially around his nose and eyes. His eyes were a dark crimson, as most Zabrak's eyes are.

03-07-2006, 11:18 PM
(you are at the top floor of a skyscraper actually, not an apartment. and you opened a turbollift door because that is the main way to get there.)

The guards lined up along the path to Morbo's throne watching as the Zabrak walked. The music stopped and people stared. Some even dropped the cigarra's out of their mouths. The guards that sorrounded Morbo quickly turned to the Zabrak, readying their blaster rifles.

"Don't come any closer." Barked a Nikto guard. The two men who picked up the heads presented it to Morbo to take a look.

"Very well, 9000 credits as promised. Give the man his money." Lovak tossed him a sack of credit chips. Terrance had no need to count them, for Morbo always paid his employees what he promised.

I pushed through the guards that sorrounded him, being well known by Morbo's men, they always got out of my way. Terrance turned around and we met eyes. My rifle rested on my shoulder, the way I always carried it. I gave the Zabrak a grin and blew out some cigarra smoke.

"Nice lightsaber."

"Now, now...I dont want my agents killing each other. I want them killing who I pay them to kill. You are not welcome here to socialize Terrance. We don't like Jedi or Sith, so take your money and leave my facility immediately. My men will contact you for the next job." Said Morbo with a grunt. The guards parted to make a path for Terrance to get back into the turbolift. Morbo wondered why he even decided to do business with the Jedi, whether he was light or dark. Probably because he needed more than one agent he could depend on besides Ferrille.

03-07-2006, 11:40 PM
He slipped the credits into a bag. "Not leaving yet, any new bounties?" He said, ignoring the stupid smuggler who was speaking to him.

03-08-2006, 12:08 AM
"Not any worth your time and skill for now. Unless you can settle for small payments such as 500 credits, and easy jobs. My men will contact you on your comm link when your service is needed."

03-08-2006, 12:28 AM
Lila noticed that Exerkis was bothered by something. Even though she was was a distance away, the way he wanted, she could plainly see and sense something was not right. Doing her job, she got up and walked in an unassuming manner towards him. She was right behind him and she softly said, "What did the hooded stranger want boss?"
As much as she disliked what he did, somethign compelled her to remain in his group. She wasn't the top dog for nothing if she wasn't asking questions concerning her boss. She waited for him to respond.

03-08-2006, 07:35 AM
Vao left the sparport and headed down a long street, until he reached a cantina. He looked up at the sign, and back at a datapad.

"Yep, this is the one." Vao says.

As Vao walks in, he walks over to two people at the bar. As he read the man's mind, he found that he had been questioned by the one Vao seeked. Vao immeadiately moved in.

"Hello, sir. Have you by chance seen this man? He goes by the lettes TSD."

03-08-2006, 09:20 AM
"Oh.. have you gotten soft, Morbo?" He said, turning around and heading to the turbo-lift door. "You want me, you know how to reach me," he said, walking out the door and opening up a window, leaping out and landing on the ground in a graceful crouch.

He hopped on his jet-black speeder and revved it up, taking off into the streets.

03-08-2006, 04:27 PM
Lila kept glancing around as if waiting for the hooded man to reappear. She sensed that there was something about that stranger that warranted investigation but would not move until she heard word from Exerkis.

03-08-2006, 05:42 PM
((Sorry guys, had to go to sleep early because of Crew))
Lila asked him what the stranger wanted. "Oh, just for me to contact him again," He showed her the card, "For some reason I was doing things I never expected to do." Then he noticed the man standing by him. "TSD, that's on the card he gave me, but I get the feeling that's not his name. He mentioned Sedai, if that means anything to you." Wait, where was Exerkis remembering this from? He was thoroughly confused, but decided to just keep on trucking. "I'm going to see if Morbo has anything for me to do."

03-08-2006, 06:55 PM
Lila was suspicious and figured that something was afoot. TSD was familiar but it was blocked by a shadow in her memory. She instead followed Exerkis to where Morbo was. She despised the Hutt and tried to avoid as much contact as possible. On the way, she touched a button on her wrist console and acted normal.

03-08-2006, 07:01 PM
Walking through the streets of Nar Shadaa, Exerkis felt strange. A sort of... desire to do good had welled up inside him. Had he been able to think straight, he might have linked the facts together and blamed the stranger, but as it was, he was too confused to do any form of thinking. As he waited in the turbolift to rise to Morbo's palace penthouse, he started to think. Was it really moral to kill someone for money? Especially when you were as well off as he was? With the money he had from his previous work, he had more than enough to live comfortably, or even luxuriously, until the end of his natural life. He suspected he might even have as much as Morbo, but that was just speculation, if not outright wishful thinking. As the turbolift doors opened, he saw Morbo's typical court arrayed as they usually were, took a deep breath, and headed on in. "Got any work for me, Morbo?" He asked, struggling to keep his voice steady. Why was this happening?

03-08-2006, 07:33 PM
Galidraan's old Sith Fighter veered in toward the docks on Nar Shaddaa. He then entered the Cantina to find Exerkis and Lila. "Find anything out yet?" He whispered to Lila.

03-08-2006, 08:09 PM
He stopped his bike near the docking bay, waiting for someone to leave their ship. He walked up to a rather large ship, labelled 'The Morke'. He looked around and pulled out a small datapad. He grabbed a cord from the side and entered it into the key lock on the ship's loading bay door. He stood there, typing away into the datapad until the datapad beeped and the door slid open. "Score." He told himself, grabbing the bike and tossing it into the garage. He closed up the door and ran to the command deck, firing up the engines.

He waved out the view screen as the man who owned it shook his fist and screamed. He took off into space, sending in departure codes and typing in hyperspace coordinates. He pulled a large lever off to the side as the ship moved into hyperspeed.

03-08-2006, 09:07 PM
Morbo was ready for new jobs. It seems that there have been a number of problems that had come up, and he was losing profits.

"Let me see... you like a tough guy and you are still new so I'll start you off with something simple today. There is a street gang that hangs out next to one of my cantinas. They are harrassing my customers. Profits to that cantina are dropping because customers are leaving the area. However these thugs are vicious and well armed. Normally I would send a squad of my own men, but I think this would be good for you to show me what kind of skills you really got. Exerkis, I dont care how you do it, just make sure they leave the area for good. 5000 credits to you when I hear that the nuisance has been delt with. In time, your salary will increase as I give out harder jobs and see you as a well distinguished employee. Now go, and teach these thugs that Morbo the Hutt is in control!"

He also had another mission, one that would be well suited for his main man...Ferrille. Morbo motioned for a runner to go get him.

"Ferrille, as you know my enterprise is currently in competition with the Exchange and other factions in the drug running business. My informants tell me of a well guarded Exchange freighter that is currently docked right now here on Nar Shadaa. I don't know where it is headed, and I don't care. However it will be stashed with millions of credits worth of spice and such. When they are FINISHED loading the cargo, destroy the freighter. That should set back the Exchange for a while. It is set to take off in five hours. There are many arms dealers here on Nar Shadaa, and I'm sure you are well aquainted with them. It would be best that you get yourself some high grade explosives and you probably know what to do after that. 13,000 credits." Ferrille grined and was soon headed out the door. He knew exactly how to go about this.

03-08-2006, 09:17 PM
Exerkis nodded, and turned on his heel before leaving the palace without a word. Two things struck him as odd. Firstly, why was the hutt acting as though he was an amateur? He thought he remembered being rather good at what he did. What was that again? All he could remember was that meeting with the strange man. That and the card which seemed to burn in his coat pocket, the card that said TSD and had location and time written on it. The second was how he had acted, and more of the results of that. Showing that level of rudeness to a hutt usually got you killed, or at least a sizeable bounty put on your head. Unless he already had the bounty on his head. The best thing to do was to just wait until he could meet this stranger, and then go with him.

03-08-2006, 09:37 PM
As Karl wondered Nar Shaddaa he had asked several people for work. One person had told him to contact Morbo or, since it was hard to get a meeting with him, find one of his henchmen. As he walked past a arms dealer he saw one of the henchmen described to him. "Your Ferrile right? I was told to talk to you if I needed work. Can you hep me out here?"

03-08-2006, 09:40 PM
"Work? Well you could go give my cargo freighter a good cleaning, its at the docks right now." Ferrille said with a chuckle.

03-08-2006, 09:42 PM
All I mean is I'm looking for some work, I'm pretty good at fixing droids, bombs and computer hacking. I was just wondering if there's any thing I could employ myself with.

03-08-2006, 09:48 PM
"Bombs, hmmm. You could be of some use. Make me a timed bomb that can fit inside this cargo container and has the capability of blowing up a standard cargo freighter from the inside. Get it done in four hours and I'll give you a thousand credits plus a meeting with Morbo himself for work."

03-08-2006, 09:52 PM
Can do, meet me here in four hours. After 4 hours Karl found Ferrile, heres your bomb. Thorium charges, set the timer and get the hell outta there. You can set how much time it takes to detonate.

03-08-2006, 10:27 PM
"Well, well. This better work good, or I'll come after you." Ferrille set off to find the freighter which was sitting at the docks. Just as Morbo had said, it is heavily guarded. dock workers were loading up the freighter one by one. This would be easier than he expected. Morbo thought this would be a hard job, and Ferrille would need extra "incentive" (credits) in taking up such a job.

He set the timer to four minutes. Ferrille then simply found a dock worker in the refreshing room and knocked him out. Taking his uniform. He casually walked onto the freighter, with the bomb and set it down in the cargo bay of the freighter and walked out. Know he was back in his own clothes watching the freighter from a distance. The cargo bay doors were closing and the Exchange men were backing away from it. Just as the engines fired up, the ship went out into a ball of flames. Ferrille turned on his heel, grinning as he heared the shouts of dock workers and Exchange goons. "Easy credits." He said outloud.

Ferrille found the man who gave him the bomb soon after, handing him a couple credit chips. He was impressed at his work. "Seems that a freighter had a malfunction." Ferrille said sarcastically with a smile. "I'll take you to Morbo. Remember, don't cross him or he will send his people after you. So what's your name?" They then began to walk towards Morbo's penthouse.

03-08-2006, 10:31 PM
My names Karl Vome, I was born on Telos. Figured I'd explore the galaxy a bit. I took a shuttle here and well here I am.

03-09-2006, 09:45 AM
Exerkis' had only one thought now: The meeting. He almost sprinted to the spot marked on the paper. Then he saw the man walk towards him. He said, "My name is Mati, though that should not concern you. I would like to take you away from this planet, and I understand that you are in no need of work, so you can come. I will take you to an outer rim world known as Tatooine, perhaps you have heard of it?" Exerkis nodded, and Mati continued, "So, when can you leave?"
Exerkis said, "There are some things I have to clear up first, how about we meet back here in 24 hours?"
"Done." Mati replied, "I will see you again." And he strode off, leaving Exerkis to ponder what to do next.

03-09-2006, 01:05 PM
Lila had remained behind in the cantina while Exerkis went to the meeting spot. When Galidraan came up to her, she was rather stunned. She had activated her console for her furry friend that scoured the places one could not see. She knew Galidraan and replied, "A stranger with a card that said TSD. Find out what it is, I sense that Exerkis is disturbed."
With a pause, she activated her comm, "Boss, is everything alright?"

03-09-2006, 04:43 PM
Exerkis' comlink crackled, "Boss, are you alright?"
"Fine," he replied, "Interested in a little adventure? The man who came up to me was named Mati. He asked to take me off-planet. I've got nothing better to do, want to come along?" He noticed himself being more polite, and feeling better than he had in years. At least the stinging was gone, but why was he being so nice? It was almost as though he was riding in the back of a stranger's head, except for it was his head, his body that was being comandeered. As he walked towards his apartment, a beggar came up to him.
"Spare a credit for a weary old man?" the beggar asked.
"Sure," Exerkis replied, handing the man a hundred-credit chip. He wasn't so horrified at this act of kindness now. As he walked into the door to the apartment complex, he noticed a twi'lek sprinting towards him, or rather the door to the complex. Behind her were two rodians, running hard. Without thought, he aimed, taking one rodian through the head, and then the other right between the eyes. All while holding the door for the twi'lek.
"What's your name?" he asked.
"My name's Tani," she replied. "Why did you help me with those thugs?"
"It just seemed like the right thing to do. I'm sorry if you didn't want the help." Exerkis said, truly meaning the apology.
"Oh no! You misunderstand me! It's just that help is hard to come by on Nar Shadaa, especially unsolicited."
"What were those thugs after you for, debt?"
"What else?" Tani said, "Yeah, my father borrowed some money from Morbo, couldn't pay up, they killed him, and now the debt's passed on to me. You know the story."
"How much you need?"
"Um... it's pretty steep. 500 credits. Don't worry, I'll think of something."
"Oh no, not at all!" he said, handing her a 1000 credit chip. "Keep the change."

03-09-2006, 04:48 PM
Lila didn't give an answer but instead walked to where her boss was. She came up from behind with a gentle tone, "That was very generous of you."
Giving Exerkis a little time for a breather from her comment she said, "You mentioned an adventure? I'm all for it. Anything that needs to be done?"
While saying this, she flipped a hundred credit chip to the Twilek who was leaving saying, "Give that to your brother's wife. She'll need it."
She turned to gaze at Exerkis.

03-09-2006, 05:09 PM
"Just get ready and meet me back here in..." He checked his watch, "18 hours. I don't know what we'll be facing, so be ready for anything." He entered his apartment, and flicked on the lights. Ah... the disorganization he liked. He never understood why people were incredulous that he didn't lose things.

03-09-2006, 07:20 PM
As the ship left hyperspace, it was in the Tattoo system. "Great.. all I need is more Jawas.."

The fuel stores are low.. maybe I could stock up and maybe sell some of this.. spice he has in the back.

He slowly landed the ship on a docking bay near the main city of Yor. He headed out the back of the ship and tossed a few credits into the face of the approaching man, his mouth was open to speak, but he quickly stopped as the credits hit him.

"Tell me where the exchange negotiator is here," is all Terrance said as his ship's loading ramp closed up.

03-09-2006, 09:46 PM
"Alright, I'll check it out." Galidraan said to Lila, leaving the Cantina, headed for his starfighter. TSD, what could it mean? He thought to himself.

03-09-2006, 10:02 PM
Exerkis sighed. Best get to work. He gathered up the few things he would need, and packed them in a satchel, before plopping down on his bed and sleeping. When he awoke, he walked outside, and began to wait for Lila to show up.
((No need to hurry, finish up on the planet, I just had nothing to do so I slept it out))

03-09-2006, 10:21 PM
He nodded as the man told him the information. He shoved past the man and entered the city, pulling up his black bandana over his mouth that was underneath the collar of his shirt. He headed towards a small bar-like area.

Hope this is the place..

Terrance walked towards the door, but was stopped by a Gamorrean body guard. "You no get in wit out card." The brutish thug said. Terrance waved a hand past the man, and spoke through his bandana. "I don't need an ID card to get in, and you're thinking that that axe you hold is very, very tasty.."

The Gamorrean nodded and opened the door for him. As Terrance walked in, a horrible deep scream was heard from outside as a thud was heard, blood dripping through the crack in the door. He looked around the place, Disgusting.. He said as he looked around at the mud-caked walls and the melting pot of a bar.

He walked through the dance floor and headed towards where the bith were playing their instruments, there he saw a human dancing and watching the Twi'leks. "Tell me where the owner is, human," he said, touching his shoulder.

The human turned around, "and who the hell are you, making assumptions?" He said, watching Terrance.

Terrance smirked and grabbed his right hand, bending back two fingers, snapping them at the joints. The man screamed in pain as he bent them back in their original place. "Now, where is the owner to this place.." He said, watching as the man was bent over, holding his hand.

"He... he's in the back.. back room.. behind... behind the Twi'leks.." He said, practically in tears. "Good, now go get that checked," Terrance said, walking off towards the dancing Twi'lek's.

This is one hell of a town.

03-09-2006, 11:58 PM
Lila searched for what she called her furry companion. Wushi was a draigon, a mall one to boot but he was her eyes and ears on any world she travelled. Wushi had received the call on his collar and he raced from the refugee sector. He passed Galidraan and stopped to give a rub. Before Galidraan could touch him, he sped off. He found Lila outside the apartment that she had stayed in and jumped into her side bag. Lila activated a her comm and spoke to Galidraan, "I'm leaving the system with Exerkis. Has to do with the stranger in the cantina. I'll send coordinates when able, out."
She walked to meet Exerkis who was snoozing at the meeting site. She smiled and thought how much his heart had opened since she hooked up with him. Gently she shook him and said, "Anything else boss?"

03-10-2006, 12:24 AM
Ferrille and Karl entered the court soon after. He grabbed Karl by the shoulder abruptly and said "Just be polite, and you will get a job" smilling at him and then they continued walking." They stopped infront of right in front of Morbo "Hello Morbo, the job is done just the way said" Morbo gave a hearty laugh and Ferrille was soon paid the 13,000 credits Morbo had promised.

"Oh by the way, this is Karl, he is very skilled and looking for work."

"I have enough henchmen and contract killers at the moment, comeback later when some of them die." Morbo said.

"This guy isn't just good with a blaster. He built the bomb that allowed me to blow the freighter. Good with slicing and other techincal stuff as well, what do you think?" Morbo was silent for a moment.

"Well I do need somebody with brains. Tell you what Karl, the Exchange is moving against me every minute. They have a base set up here on Nar Shadaa. Figure out a way to hack their mainframe without them knowing, and then we can take a look at all the docking schedules and destinations and such for their freighters. With that, I could send my agents to sabatoge them. I've been looking for a good computer slicer for weeks, maybe you might just be it. We have a consoles on the 5th floor, you are welcome to use them. Name your price Karl."

03-10-2006, 12:46 AM
He walked into the room silently, bypassing the sleeping thumb-sucking Gamorrean guard. Several men looked up from their game of high stakes pazaak but quickly went back to the game. One man stood up, facing Terrance. "And just who the hell are you?" He said, drawing a blaster.

Terrance glanced at the men, raising his hand towards him, the man lifting into the air violently, swinging his legs back and forth in an attempt to flee. As the man was a good five feet into the air, Terrance clenched his fist, the man wrenching over in pain and falling to the ground, many bloody bones jutted out of his torso at crooked red angles.

Terrance just walked past the other frightened men before coming face to face with another brave soul. "A Jedi eh? Well I've learned how to deal with them," he said, a brave Twi'lek he was.

Terrance just sighed and withdrew his lightsaber, pivoting in place as the black end of the saber ignited just as he spun past the man's torso diagonally. He stopped as his back faced the man. As the white end of his saber ignited, the man fell in two clean diagonal pieces.

He twirled the saber gracefully, all of the men except two drawing blasters, the other two drew vibro-blades. Walking forward, Terrance perfectly deflected the blaster shots, childs play. He spun the sword horizontally over his head, blocking a strike from a vibroblade. He spun around and sliced the man horizontally across the chest and kicked his torso, sending the top half of his body across the room to hit a wall and the bottom half to fall limp onto the floor.

He let out a mighty force wave, sending the men to the ground. He twirled the saber and put it away, lifting his right hand into the air. Lightning sprouted from his fingertips, each organic body in the room lighting up with blue light, being surged with electricity. Within moments, Terrance ceased and kicked a leg out from under a wooden table and spinning behind the fallen table, entrails and blood exploded violently every which way.

Terrance stood up and walked out of the room, into the bosses domain calmly, professionally. Any Force sensitive could easily feel the already-present echo in the Force grow stronger.

03-10-2006, 09:38 AM
Lila woke him up. He must have been snoozing. "No, let's move out." He said to her inquiry. As the walked towards the meeting site, Exerkis no longer felt that he was riding in the back of someone's head. He just felt, different, like he wanted to do good. Oh well, what's changed has changed, all he could do now was accept it. As he arrived at the meeting spot, the stranger stepped forward from the shadows. "Well, I see you've brought a companion. No problem, no problem at all. If you would follow me to the spaceport." They took backstreets. This guy was trying to avoid attention. It didn't matter though, he had signed on and he was not backing down.
"So where are we going?" Asked Exerkis once they were on the ship.

03-10-2006, 11:07 AM
"Good relations I have with the Wookies," Lila replied softly. One of her travels had brought her to Kashyykk where the Wookies at first accepted her like a stranger. After they figured out where her people came from, they were more open. She had been to the Shadowlands before and helped lost Wookies. She wasn't apprehensive about meeting them again. In fact she was rather pleased. She didn't show it as they boarded the ship.

03-10-2006, 08:32 PM
They came out of hyperspace in sight of the forest planet. As Mati took them down, Exerkis noticed that he wasn't transmitting coordinates. "Where are we landing?" he asked.
"The shadowlands." Responded Mati nonchalantly.
As they touched down, Mati focused for a moment, and then said, "Let's go."
They walked through the forest, and encountered no form of resistance. And then they saw a wookie hunting party, drawing nearer. Mati cursed under his breath, but made no effort to avoid the Wookies.

03-10-2006, 11:03 PM
"So you're him.." He said, looking at a fat twi'lek holding a cigar and a heavy repeater rifle. Terrance slowly walked around him, as he was sitting in his makeshift throne in the center of the room, seven or eight Gamorreans surrounded him, some holding vibro axes, some holding large blaster rifles.

He started speaking in a garbled Twi'lek dialog, which Terrance barely understood. But he did understand one thing- when the Twi'lek raised his weapon.

Terrance force sprinted towards the Twi'lek, flipping over him and unsheathing his saber, flicking it out to the side as he was upside down, the white end decapitating the Twi'lek and the black end slicing a long chain that held up one rafter.

He managed to cut down the rest of the men in the room before the rafter fell on two unsuspecting exchange members. He sheathed his saber and sighed a little, beathing. He opened up his wrist console and typed in a few numbers, that connected to Morbo.

"I've taken down the Exchange branch in Tatooine.. I want my money." He said, looking around.

"Transfer it to my bank account, all twelve thousand of it."

03-11-2006, 01:21 AM
"Mati, let me speak to the Wookies," Lila said. With an authoritorian walk, she walked right up to the leader of the hunting party. She spoke to the leader telling who she was. The Wookies let out a growl of happiness and surprise. They had missed their friend, the ally of the Wookies. She smiled at them saying how glad she was to see them. She said that she and her companions needed to speak to the chieftain if he would honor them with his presence. The Wookies agreed and one motioned for her to follow. She waved for Exerkis and Mati to follow as their Wookie guide led them to a basket that had been there since Czerka once staked claim. The Wookie guide couldn't help but give her a hug once they were in the basket heading up. She said, "Alright Freyrk, I missed you too." She had to rub her ribs for she had forgotten how hard a Wookie can hug. She turned to find Exerkis looking at her in surprise.

03-11-2006, 02:26 AM
Lovak approached Morbo with the news of Terrance. After confirming the reports Morbo told Lovak to send Terrance a reply. "Since when did we agree that I would pay you 12000 for eliminating the Exchange branch on Tatooin. I thank you for your service, but next time you should strike a deal with me first on the missions, instead of assuming I would pay you." Morbo then turned to Lovak.

"Dont transfer the money yet, I wonder what this schutta was thinking." Two of Morbo's henchmen then approached Morbo with some interesting news.

"Remember Exerkis Morbo?"
"Yes, why are you bothering me? Has the man completed his job yet?" The Hutt grunted.
"Well no, reports indicate Exerkis killed two of your men and left the planet. He went to Kashyyk with others."
"Damn him, he is a fool to cross me. I have a handfull tach poachers on Kashyyk, they don't make that much profits. Tell them to find Exerkis and rough him up a bit. I can't let people know that Morbo is lenient with people who cross him." Morbo said to Lovak. Lovak contacted them immediately .

03-11-2006, 02:34 AM
He calmly replied. "Morbo.. Morbo.. don't you think that the exchange branch on Tatooine would be a hinderance to your plans? I took them out for a reason.. and if you call be a shutta again, you'll be eating your words. Literally. I'll be awaiting the payment." Is all he said as he shut off the comm link. He casually walked out of the building, heading towards his ship.

He threw a few credits in the same guard's face as he hopped onto his ship. The ship was fueled and there was an envelope bulging with credits and a note saying 'complementary refueling'. He smirked. Leave it to a fool to do a man's work for him.

He pocketed the credits and threw the note aside, closing up the loading ramp and firing up the engines, his bank account popping up on the screen next to his radar, awaiting the transfer before he took off.

03-11-2006, 11:04 AM
As they arrived at the wookie chieftain's hall, Exerkis pondered to himself. It didn't look like Mati was happy about all this. And from where did Lila speak wookie? Or moreover, know these wookies? Oh well, he would just have to wait and see.

03-11-2006, 02:52 PM
"Send him 8000 credits and transfer this message as well..." Morbo then began to recite his message to Terrance. "Thank you Terrance for your services, however I will not take orders from you. I have sent you 8000 credits instead of the 12,000 you demanded in order to show that it is I who says who gets how much money. Next time be sure to consult me next time you do something and expect me to pay you for it." Morbo then to managing other tasks with his advisors, secretaries, and top men.

Meanwhile on Kashyyk, Morbo's man in charge of the tach export business just recieved word of Exerkis. Morbo had one dock on the planet, and one freighter that transported off tach glands to Corusant. He wasn't really into the tach gland business, but decided to take a foothold in it anyways. The man went over to the comm link console next to the ship to contact the poachers down in the Shadowlands.
"Netris, get your men topside asap, we have other matters to attend to. We need to find these people and rough them up a bit. They are on the planet. This is an order from Morbo himself." He said sending Netris their descrpitions. Netris and his men were a ragtag group of goons. Currently they were taking their usual unnecessary break in the Shadowlands. Which included talking, smoking, and joking. They were soon up in the trees searching around for this "Exerkis".

"Alright, get your blasters ready. We are gonna give them a good beating with the stun batons and we can call it a day."

03-11-2006, 05:48 PM
Terrance growled for a moment before changing course for Nar Shadaa. He spun his ship around and pulled into hyperspace. He clenched his right fist, several drops of black liquid seeping down the leather exterior of his glove.

"Morbo has another thing coming... Speaking that way to me.."

03-12-2006, 12:00 AM
Karl was working in the computer room when he finally thought he saw a window, as he hacked it he realized he was in, undetected. He walked into Morbo's chamber and politely said"You have undetectable access to the exchange mainframe, here are their docking schedules, I would like 5000 credits if it is not too much."

03-12-2006, 01:22 AM
"6000, to you who is polite to Morbo. You are now welcome to enjoy myself in my court. Drinks, Cigarras, and dancers are all free. Enjoy yourself, but create no trouble or youll find yourself face down in an alleyway." A couple of the guards around Morbo snickered at his last comment.

"You know Terrance isn't going to take it so well that you didn't pay him up." Ferrille said to Morbo.

"Well what's he going to do about it, the whole facility is tightly secure. We got war droids, guards, mercenaries, bounty hunters everywhere who would not mind blasting a Dark Jedi like himself. On top of my state of the art security system. Terrance would be a fool to come here and start trouble. If he makes a move against any of my operations Ill put a bounty on his head that will be extremely diffficult to resist. Now my customers on Correllia want more spice shipments and I need to negotiate deals."

"Alright, if you say so. Just watch out for him." Ferrille went back to concentrating on his drink and cigarra.

On Kashyyk Netris pulled a cigarra out of his pocket and began to smoke. "Alright, I guess they went into the Wookie village. Lets wait here till they come out so we can give them a good beating." The poachers smiled. Netris pulled raised his blaster rifle and fired well placed shots in the trees. A couple kinarath fell out and plumeted into the depths of the Shadowlands. It brought a hearty laugh to the group of poachers.

(Netris and his group are unimportant characters, nothing more than highly replaceable thugs to Morbo. You can go ahead and kill them.)

03-12-2006, 01:42 AM
Once in the cheiftain's hall, Lila bowed respectfully to the leader of the Wookies. The elder Wookie growled, "Since when does a friend and hero bow to another friend?" With a firm yet gentle grasp, he gave her a hug. Lila smiled and replied, "It's a pleasure to meet you too, Zalbaar ((I'm assuming, feel free to correct me)). I've been away doing what is necessary."
"Why have you returned to Kashyyk?"
"I came with my boss Exerkis and our acquaintance named Mati. Perhaps he could explain why we have come," and she turned to Mati.

03-12-2006, 02:38 AM
((Well, odds-on he hasn't survived, but OK))
Mati spoke up, looking as though his patience was being tested. "We are heading to a place I cannot disclose. Please allow as to go there unhindered. I don't want to have to kill more sentients than I have to"

03-12-2006, 03:32 AM
((Pottsie told me Wookies could live a fairly long time often past a hundred years))
"Now, now. This IS the home of the Wookies. We must respect their home and their leader," Lila replied. She was rather annoyed at what Mati was doing. Zalbaar did not get angry but instead said, "You are free to travel the Shadowlands. I suggests you take care as there are many creatures down there."
"Thank you old friend," Lilah said and backed her companions out. The movement was enough for Wushi to poke his head out of her bag and see where they were without anyone noticing. Once outside Lilah spoke rather harshly in a strange language, "Hateh mala polachenta nalahuatechuk (Stupid human stop insulting the Wookies)!" She then spoke in Basic to Mati, "I suggest you not insult those that this place belongs to. There are worse things than a katarn attack in the realm of diplomacy."

03-12-2006, 04:11 AM
"Here they are!" The group readied their weapons approached Exerkis and his party. Netris tossed his burning cigarra at Exerkis's feet, his rifle ready in the other hand.

"Well hello Exerkis, you killed two of Morbo's men on Nar Shadaa. A very bad mistake on your part. Im going to have to ask you and your friends to drop your weapons and get on your knees. Don't try anything, there's a lot more of us and don't think we won't blast you." Said Netris, the entire group of half-drunk poachers then raised their blasters at them.

03-12-2006, 04:49 AM
Without realizing what she was doing, Lila grabbed the silver stick from her belt that Baba had given her. With deft movements she touched a button and it came to life emmiting a golden beam of light and power. She held it in her right and with her left, she pulled her singing blade. She twirled them in her hand and assumed a middle stance. She said, "A group of drunken poachers couldn't find their way through Coruscant without a string of cantinas to light the way."
She looked at Netris straight in the eye and with a smile gave a call. Wushi was on a branch right behind Netris ready to spring. Upon her call her sent a smoke bomb that filled the area with a thick cloud of smoke, covering everyone. Lila made a slight motion to Exerkis and Mati to arm themselves and disapppeared into the smoke.

03-12-2006, 10:52 AM
After enjoying several drinks he asked Morbos for another job. "It's not that I don't enjoy your hospitality Morbo, I just like keeping my hands busy,so what next."

03-12-2006, 11:55 AM
Terrance landed his ship on Nar Shadaa docks and leaped out, ignoring the man wanting a docking fee. He quickly started to walk towards the Entertainment district, blowing a line through the crowd with a force push.

He entered the apartment and rode an elevator to Morbo's room. He waved a hand infront of the Turbolift, the turrets in the hallway crackling and dying, and the door sliding open and sparking.

"Anyone in my way dies." He said as he headed through the room towards Morbo, a Force shield coating his body from energy blasts from Turrets and bounty hunters.

He was quickly stopped by several bounty hunters. He cracked his neck a few times. "So, you're the one's who are going to kill me?" He said, withdrawing his saber.

The bounty hunters were a few feet taller than him, but it didn't phase him. They started to raise their weapons. Terrance quickly dived to the side and kicked off of a wall, landing in a slide towards one of the men.

He ignited his lightsaber as he slid underneath his legs, lopping both of the legs off at the kneecap. As the man was falling, he twirled the saber and sliced out violently at the other, several strikes being caught by the cortosis-weaved armor, but one came through and took off the man's left arm at the elbow.

Using this opening, he ran forward and drop kicked him in the chest, flipping in mid air and landing gracefully, watching the man stumble backwards into a table, crushing it under his weight.

Terrance sheathed his saber and started to walk towards Morbo again, several turrets aiming at him and the rest of the bounty hunters in the room moving infront of him, blasters ready.

There were just too many.

03-12-2006, 12:01 PM
As Terrance started slicing Karl Decided this would be a good time to exit as quietly as possible.

03-12-2006, 01:57 PM
There was a pause in the battle.The patrons rushed out of the court. Along the sides on the path to Morbo was his war-droids, their blasters rifles aimed at Terrance. Morbo was sorroundedby 20 of his top body guards, all had their blasters aimed at Terrance as well. In the middle was Ferrille with his blaster resting on his shoulder as usual, smoking a cigarra. Infront of them was a group of Gamorreans with virbroaxes ready to charge at him. Morbo activated an energy shield covering himself and spoke out to Terrance. "You are a fool to come here and disturb the peace of my court Terrance, do you have anything else to say before you die here?"

On Kashyyk the smoke cleared and Netris and his men were highly disoriented. "Damn, we lost them." They slowly got up and looked around. Luckily Lila and Exerkis did not retaliate and instead retreated, for Netris and his men would surely be dead. It seems their mission had failed.

(I don't want Ferrille and Morbo dead yet.)

03-12-2006, 02:36 PM
Mati grumbled to himself, something about respect and having to restrain himself. The name Danr came up, and he quickly silenced himself. Couldn't give away too much. As they made there way back through the shadowlands, Mati found what they had been looking for: A building, seamless, as though it had been made of one piece of metal and fallen into the shadowlands. Mati sighed, and said, "Were here."
Exerkis followed Mati inside and said, "So what did you want me for?"
"Oh, it wasn't me that wanted you, it was the Orocame."

03-12-2006, 08:58 PM
((You should have read the post I did more carefully Exerkis))

Lila slid down one of the vines after dealing with the ambushers. Wushi had dealt with them by tying them up in the smoke. The thugs were left to be eaten by the kinrath. She used her senses and knowledge of the Shadowlands to find Exerkis at a seamless building. She was actually right behind Mati and said, "What or who is the Orocame? Like my ancestor Kirabaros?" She hadn't switched her blade off and it glowed to give some light in the darkened Shadowlands.

03-12-2006, 09:05 PM
(sorry, JediMaster12, I thought from CountVericulus' post that they had left. Otherwise Mati would have become death incarnate.)
Mati paused, blinking. "The Orocame is... hard to explain. He is a man, but also of the force. He is our charge, though he needs it little, now. We are sworn to protect him, and he protects us as much as he can. I don't know who Kirabos is."

03-12-2006, 09:53 PM
Karl picked up his blaster, ready to defend himself if he had to." Dammit why does everyone always wanna kill everyone else?"He said to himself

03-12-2006, 10:38 PM
Terrance gracefully twirled his saber over his head then let it rest an inch from his clothing underneath his right arm pit, moving himself into the Shii-Cho stance (Against multiple and blaster). He smirked. "Only one." He tightened his grip on the hilt of his saber. "You need to watch your mouth core slime."

He leapt into the air, a hail of blaster fire surrounding him. His ignited sabers deflecting most of the shots, the rest being deflected by his Force shield that he put up earlier. He landed and quickly drove through one line of droids, spinning horizontally he struck out at three, the black blade slicing through their abdomens as he flipped forwards, completely upside down, deflecting shots and twirling like a copter, slicing through two more guards before landing back on his feet then sliding along the floor, taking out two bounty hunter's hips, dropping them instantly.

He twirled gracefully and spun his saber to the side, letting go with his left hand and facing his palm outward, releasing a powerful Force wave towards a group of 5 bounty hunters, knocking them backwards onto their feet. He Force sprinted towards them and impaled one, spinning vertically, slicing another in half by the abdomen, creating a flame on the ground as he started spinning the weapon on both sides of his body violently, slicing through the ranks of Morbo's men.

He flipped backwards into the air and threw the lightsaber at another group of bounty hunters, easily picking them off. One bounty hunter struck through his Force shield with a disruptor rifle and caught him in the shoulder, sending searing pain down his arm, losing his concentration. His saber fell from the air, turned off, and broke in two on the way down. Or should I say.. dissasembled.

He shook it off and force sprinted towards his sabers, grabbing both by the end of the hilt and activating them, the two blades behind his wrists, backwards. He pivoted and swirled, slicing, slicing, and slicing his way gracefully through the ranks, all the while deflecting shots that were thrown at him.

He quickly leaped into the air and threw a saber into the air and kicked it towards Ferrille, who just moved his head as the saber impaled a rodian bounty hunter in the face. The saber jumped back into Terrance's head as he flipped in air and landed with both sabers in the right hands, correctly held, slicing the last droid down in two halves perfectly. He twirled the sabers and stuck them back together into a doublesaber just as the droid fell in two.

He just stood there, watching Ferrille and Morbo.

"Anyone else?" He said, wiping a bit of sweat off of his forehead.

03-12-2006, 10:50 PM
After seeing Terrance kill half the people in Morbo's court Karl decided it was definatley time to leave, quickly. However curiosity got the better of him and he stayed waiting to see what would happen next.

03-12-2006, 10:58 PM
Correction, only the Bounty hunters and droids Morbo sent after him. :) The rest left voluntarily >.> ))

03-12-2006, 11:11 PM
((Sorry for the mistake))

03-12-2006, 11:27 PM
"Kirabaros, my ancestor, the one who united the tribes. I don't know Baba told me about it when I was very little," Lila replied. Her interest was piqued for her people had many famous individuals that were not known to the Republic because that was how they operated. She replied, "Try me for an explanation. I'm always up for a good story."

((Exerkis, to know who Kirabaros is, read my fanfic Heart of the Guardian. That is my baby that I have ignored because of school))

03-13-2006, 12:04 AM
(and the body guards, mercenaries, highly expendable gamorrean goons....oh yeah, i think the style for better deflection against blasters and good for many ppl is shien)

Morbo was out of luck this time. Terrance cut a swath through alll his henchmen, the ones still alive lay on the floor either unconsious or unable to move. "Are you open to negotiation?" Morbo said calmly. He did not fear Terrance, because the alarm had already been tripped and more of Morbo's reinforcements would be comming soon. Terrance would be unable to take on all of them surely. Ferrille had his blaster rifle raised at him, switching the regular energy bolt clip to disrupter ammunition. His blaster rifle was modified to be able to fire both types of ammunition.

03-13-2006, 12:23 AM
There was only one known master of Form I in the Star Wars Universe: Kit Fisto. Though Kit Fisto was a master of Shii-Cho, he could not defeat Darth Sidious with it in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. Based on KOTOR 2 and the novelization of Revenge of the Sith, the Shii-Cho form is good versus many enemies wielding conventional blaster weaponry. Its simplicity is its strength, making it a very good style to use if all else fails. -Excerpt from the Star Wars Wikipedia))

"After all of that, you seriously think that sending more of your pathetic henchmen will finish me off? You'll be sadly mistaken." He looked around, then at Morbo.

"I want the rest of the money."

03-13-2006, 12:39 AM
"So be it." Morbo pulled out his own datapad, and transmitted the remaining money to Terrance. "Now leave and never comeback. You won't be getting anymore work from me. Better hurry, they are comming." Terrance could surely feel that many reinforcements were on their way.

03-13-2006, 09:41 AM
He smirked. "Good. Because next time I see you, your head will be on the ground," he said, walking out of the room, shouldering past a Gamorrean, knocking the savage beast on it's back.

He grinned a little, heading out towards his ship. Within moments he realized that his ship had been taken. "Son of a.." He clenched his fist and looked around, and saw an old Sith fighter. He headed over to it, inspecting the vehicle. He finally pulled out his datapad slicer and started hacking into the ship.

03-13-2006, 05:38 PM
Exerkis was about to ask, but he suddenly got the feeling Mati wouldn't appreciate the delay. "Another time," he said, "After we find out what this 'Orocame' wants." He noticed Mati visibly tighten, and then he gestured towards the facility. As they entered, Mati looked more relaxed. They went through the corridors, until they arrived in an antechamber.
"Welcome," said a voice Exerkis didn't recognize, "I am the Orocame, and it is you I have summoned. Come, we must talk." He turned to Lila, "Mati will give you a tour of our facilities, if you wish it, or bring you to quarters that can serve as yours for the remainder of your stay."

03-13-2006, 06:01 PM
"Hey wherever he goes I go," Lila motioned in the direction of Exerkis. As much as she disliked Hutts and smuggling, something was here that needed to be heard and she felt it. She made her intention known by standing by Exerkis and refused to budge, going so far as to use her ability to sweep (Force wave) people away, particularly Mati. "Se ne matchechuck (It is honor at stake)."

03-13-2006, 06:31 PM
The Orocame looked stunned for a second, and Mati looked ready to eat nails, until a gesture from the Orocame silenced him. "Very well. Follow me if you will." The Orocame turned and went into a side corner, which led to a turbolift. As they rose, the Orocame said nothing. To be honest, it unnerved Exerkis. Then they arrived at what he assumed to be the Orocame's study. He entered, with Exerkis and Lila following. The Orocame said, "Now. Let's get down to buisness. I understand you have in your possesion a blaster rifle."
"Yes," said Exerkis slowly, "It belonged to my father."
"Alright. I would like you to shoot it at me."
"Are you sure?" Asked Exerkis, looking bemused.
"Dead sure. Trust me, I've had larger things then lasers fly at me and survived."
"O.K." Exerkis said, and he pulled the trigger.

03-13-2006, 06:51 PM
Lila was surprised that she had forcefully stood her ground and follwed. She wasn't perplexed by the Orocame's request. She had seen Baba do something similar and wasn't the least worried. Wushi had scampered back into her bag and was watching the scene. Lila had her silver stick in her hand still but didn't make an attempt to use it. Baba had taught her to observe and trust her instincts.

03-13-2006, 06:59 PM
The beam streaked towards the Orocame's face, and his faced took on a puzzled expression, and then a determined one. Right before it seared his skin, the beam stopped, and then dissipated. "Good." The Orocame said, "Now, if you wouldn't mind using this blaster rifle, and doing the same thing." Once again, Exerkis took aim, this time with the Orocame's rifle, and fired. And the Orocame's face went through the same expressions, and the beam stopped, a considerable distance farther away from the Orocame's face before dissipating.
"It is as I suspected. You are strong in the force, though you do not know it. Very strong, perhaps as strong as Mati, or maybe Danr. The important thing is, I would like to train you myself. But you needn't be forced into this. I can have you wake up on Nar Shadaa and not remember any of this. It is up to you."
"Well, Lila, what do you think? Should I become a jedi?"
As soon as the words were out of Exerkis' lips, the Orocame spoke up, "We are not jedi. I was one once, years ago, but no more. We are an order thousands of years older than the jedi, for we are the servants of the Force."
"Well, I suppose the question remains the same. Should I become a whatever these guys are?"

03-13-2006, 08:51 PM
After the whole episode with Terrance Karl once again what Morbo would have him doing. "I enjoy your hospitality but I also like being busy."

03-13-2006, 09:08 PM
"This is an outrage!" Morbo screamed at his court of people. "How pathetic, you let one man get past. I want the war droids and turrets fixed, and Karl...you design a damn good security system for me and ill pay well. Hire more guards! Good ones, bring in Echani and Mandalorians if you have too. I have more than enough money to pay them, why not?!" Morbo screamed at his assistant and managers. Within a couple days, all Morbo's requests were tended to.

The court was now back in its usually state, new elite guards were hired. Many of them were even Echani and Mandalorian like Morbo demanded. Including a number of other henchmen to replace the ones Terrance killed. Thanks to Karl the turrets and war droids were repaired, and even upgraded significantly. Along with a state of the art security system. His penthouse was not only a penthouse, but a stronghold as well.

Lovak, Morbo's top manager was able to survive the whole mess. "Put a broadcast on the holonet for a bounty on that man's head so high that almost every bounty hunter will be after him. I mean that literaly, a small fortune for the man who brings me his head." That was a large sum of money, but Morbo could pay it. He was the the richest and most powerful crimelord on Nar Shadaa, and had much control on other worlds as well. Though the vast Exchange network was still greater than his empire.

03-14-2006, 12:15 AM
Terrance was gliding through hyperspace, heading towards Kashyyk, looking to get with the slaving there. There was always good money in slaving.

He typed a few buttons into the console and set it on autopilot, looking around the ship and seeing a rack of lightsabers. "A Dark Jedi's ship.." He said, looking over the weapons.

03-14-2006, 02:02 AM
"So are my people," Lila replied softly, "They are guardians of the Force. Our worlds are safe havens for those gifted for it is a place that cannot be found except by those who already know where it is."
She fingered the silver stick that she still had in her hand. She ignited it and the golden beam shined through. She continued to speak, "This was given to me by one I call Baba who taught me what you and I know," and then she fell silent and began to communicate in a different way, I was born into a servitude that had stood for more than the Republic, in a time that is of the dog days. I serve to find those that I see will change the course of the future. Aloud she then again spoke still holding the ignited lightsaber, "The singing swords of my people have kept watch and will continue to do so. There are many, hidden yet watching.''
It was the longest speech she ever made to anyone that considered her an equal adversary. She continued to gaze at the Orocame with a gaze that told of strength and power.

03-15-2006, 10:28 AM
"I think I will become a Ta'Sedai." Exerkis said, with a semblance of solemnity.
"Good." Replied the Orocame, nodding to himself. "Very good."
"Lila, unless you want to become a Ta'Sedai too, I think this is where we part ways."

03-15-2006, 04:48 PM
His ship slid out of hyperspace and docked on a rather large platform in Rwookrorro (I think). He jumped out of the ship and headed into the city, walking to the nearby building, it was lit up with blue lights and blinding white lights, the walls were pure white but there were the roars and growls of binded wookies.

He walked up to the main desk. "So.. what does it take to get.. into this business.."
He said, looking into the rather attractive woman's face.

"It's not something to just join.." She stopped speaking as Terrance laid down about 5 thousand credits. "Alrighty then.. one business card and an ID card.." She took his hand and slapped a small piece of paper on it. The paper glowed for a second then she slapped the paper on a piece of plastic, sealing iteself on there as his picture and his information appeared on it.

He took his items and headed out into the streets, pocketing the items she gave him. He drew his cloak around him, and headed towards the Wookie village.

03-15-2006, 09:17 PM
Lila spoke, "I serve the Force and protect the Jedi. Some of my people have become Jedi as well. Should you become this, we shall not part ways for the stars tell of a greatness that is to come."
It was surprising that Lila was speaking a lot because she never did speak of her people or where she came from. All that Exerkis knew of was her mentor Baba whom she mentioned in passing. Lila stood looking at Exerkis in the eye, "One cannot turn away from what has come to pass and what will come to pass. My place is in the galaxy. As a Jedi, as a Bushida, as a Ta'Sedai, it matters not. Others will be watching should I fall."

03-16-2006, 12:36 AM
A rather large explosion shook the forests and villages of Kashyyk around his area. Within moments, Terrance appeared from the smoke, dragging two wookies by their fur out of the village, several wookies roaring and falling to the ground on fire, the stench of burnt hair was overwhelming.

He reached the outpost as the men opened the door. "Hey! The Village is not under our jurisdiction!" Terrance walked past, the man grabbing his throat as he looked at him, clawing at his chest before he fell to the ground, dead.

Terrance made his way to the slaving building and dropped the two Wookies onto the ground, kicking them slightly. "Got two here, pretty good size. Muscular, they kept up a fight," he said, watching two men haul them off in cages.

"Wait, are you the one who caused the explosion?" The woman at the desk said, his card of credits in her hand. He waved a hand in her face, "No, and you have no idea who did it, and you will give me double my money because of the trouble you are giving me." He said in a monotone voice, taking the credits and walking outside.

This should pay for refueling.. and then some... He stuffed the twenty seven thousand card of credits in his robe and walked back to the Sith fighter.

03-16-2006, 12:42 AM
Lila then turned her head to the East and looked up. Still looking at the ceiling of the building she said, "The Wookies have been attacked. Several are dead, many wounded and two captured." She opened the flap to her side bag and said, "Wushi go see and contact Galidraan." The little draigon slipped out and made his way through the Shadowlands.

03-16-2006, 07:16 PM
Rather amused by all this, the Orocame said, "The soulforce is a great storyteller, and all stories have conflict. But still, I suppose we should go see what all this is about, for after all, what play has no principles?" He fetched something from the table, and Exerkis saw lines flowing from the Orocame's body to the object. He also saw the same force glimmering through everyone's body. He looked, and the next time the Orocame got something, he saw how to manipulate that force. Then the Orocame simply dissappeared. But Exerkis had seen what he had done.
"Hold on!" he told Lila, "We're going to see the wookies." And then they were gone.

03-16-2006, 07:55 PM
He started to open up his Sith fighter's main sliding door before he felt something, an echo in the Force. "Looks like someone doesn't want me to be here..." He said quietly to himself, sliding open the door.

03-16-2006, 08:17 PM
After finding out what he needed to know on Nar Shaddaa, Galidraan prepped his old Sith Fighter for launch. While taking off, he thought about how the other Jedi didn't approve of his use of a Sith ship, and how he justified it by saying that he was taking a tool of the Dark Side, and harnessing it into a weapon of the Light Side. He then jumped to hyperspace, en route to Kashyyyk.

03-16-2006, 09:53 PM
He started to open up his Sith fighter's main sliding door before he felt something, an echo in the Force. "Looks like someone doesn't want me to be here..." He said quietly to himself, sliding open the door.
"Boy you sure got that one right," Lila called. She had her silver stick in her right and her singing blade in the left. She had left Exerkis to use the elevator basket while she climbed the wroshyr branches, something she had learned from the Wookies. She gave her call and several Wookies responded to take up stance behind her. She looked at the Sith and said, "You have violated the sanctity of this place. For that you must face judgment before the chieftain."

Wushi meanwhile had gotten ahold of the communicator and began sending a Morse Code message to Galidraan that said they were under attack and that they needed help. Wushi repeated it several times and then went to go find Lila.

03-16-2006, 10:05 PM
Galidraan recieved the message and send a reply. "I'm on my way." He said, landing in their location, jumping out and activating his lightsaber.

03-16-2006, 10:47 PM
"Well well well.. looks like we have some.. Jedi here.." He said, sliding open the door to his stolen ship then facing the two, slowly withdrawing his long doublesaber. He ignited it, the black and white blades contrasting each other, letting off a strange grey glow onto the ground.

He twirled it over his head and let it rest under his right armpit.

(Suddenly the Qui-gon & Obi-wan vs. Darth Maul TPM duel comes to mind..)

03-16-2006, 11:22 PM
((What I meant is that they... Teleported of sorts using the force))
Exerkis noticed two things. One was the start of the duel in front of him, the other was the Orocame, calmly watching all this. "Shouldn't we help them?" Exerkis asked.
"The wheel weaves as the wheel wills..." Orocame muttered "Hmm? What? Oh, we will join in if they look like they need help."

03-17-2006, 12:00 AM
Lila ignited the stick to reveal its golden beam and with intense skill, twirled them to set into a middle stance. The Wookies behind her waited. She had told them to wait by a slight movement of her finger on the hilt. It was so subtle that it looked like she was getting a stronger grip on the hilt. She had this glint in her eye that had made her feared among the scum that roamed the galaxy. She eyed her opponent, waiting for first strike.

03-17-2006, 12:46 AM
(Lets do this right, we can't use too much Force because it's two versus one, and Terrance is quick, because he'd have to like, block strikes from two fantastic Jedi. A few hits on his armor here and there because they're cortosis weaved. No one will die, just no auto hits. Make it stylish if you're going to attack him, team up. He has a double saber :) ))

He charged towards her, twirling it horizontally over his head then coming down straight with the white blade vertical over her head, once she deflected that, he crouched down and spun around, dodging Galidraan's sweep at his head. He struck out at Lila, striking her lightsaber's blade several times before going into a saber lock as Galidraann's saber struck his other black blade.

He pushed them away and pushed his saber in the air as he leapt upwards, flipping and spinning in the air as his saber was horizontally aligned with him, both black and white blades connected to theirs.

As he landed, he snatched the saber and twirled it, letting them recoil and turn around and watch him, his saber in the same position as the start, yet now behind them. "You think you two can stand up against a Sith Lord?"

03-17-2006, 12:54 AM
"We're Jedi, Sith Lords are our speciality." Galidraan said, striking again with his lightsaber, only to be blocked again. "We'll have to take him together." He said to Lila.

03-17-2006, 01:00 AM
He viciously twirled his saber, creating a sheet of sparks infront of him, hiding his appearance. When the sparks cleared, he had vanished. Within moments, he dropped down on Galidraan, barely being blocked at the last second. He deactivated his saber and backflipped away from them, landing in an attack stance, holding his saber out horizontally, ignited.

03-17-2006, 01:28 AM
((Lila is not really a Jedi. She was never trained as one nor accepted. She is often mistaken for one because she carries a blade around but it was given to her by the mysterious Baba))

Lila did a double turn and made a swirling motion with both blades with such control it would have been a spectacle. She twirled them so fast together that they seemed to blend and a fierce shrieking came from the melee blade, a singing, a war chant. She took calculated steps forward and timed blows to try to catch the Sith off guard. She relied on the skill that Baba taught her. She then tooka step back and said, "I've had proper instruction since I was two."

03-17-2006, 09:21 AM
"You'll need more than proper training to win this fight, girl," he said, spinning his body in motion with his saber as he clashed against her singing blade with his black blade, knocking the melee blade back a little then letting go of the saber and ducking under her last blow, grabbing the saber with opposite hands and swinging it horizontally down, clashing against her saber, his hands parallel to the back of her elbow.

He twirled his saber and clashed with Galidraan's saber as it swung towards him, he slowly backed up, expertly twirling and sliding to dodge the two blades and deflect the strikes away.

03-17-2006, 10:51 AM
Lila smiled at him and said, "Uh, you're fast but not that fast," and she held up a strap that had the utility belt. She had removed it when they got in close. She was still smiling when his pants began to slide down. She tossed it to the Wookies who held it in a deathgrip.

03-17-2006, 08:03 PM
He sighed a little. "Apparantly, you're still an immature little girl." He tucked his pants into his undergarments and twirled his saber, deactivating it. "Now, if you're really hitting to kill, come at me."

03-17-2006, 08:21 PM
Galidraan wanted to Lila, but he knew he could not physically stop her. "Don't. Such an action would only lead to the Dark Side." He said to her, hoping that would quell her emotions.

03-17-2006, 09:44 PM
((She's never really angry enoug to kill. Think like Mira. I'm trying to do that))

Lila didn't even attempt to run towards him. She just stood her ground and looked at the Sith in front of her with a glint in her eye that spoke of courage. She replied, "I wouldn't give you the satisfaction of turning one sworn to an oath to your dark side."
She then deactivated the lightsaber and sheathed her sword.

03-17-2006, 10:00 PM
Galidraan then deactivated his lightsaber. "How the Sith be attacking? They've been extinct for two hundred years." He asked.

03-17-2006, 11:11 PM
"Extinct? Oh no..far from it." He said, walking towards them, the wookie who held his sash fall into a deep sleep as the sash flew towards his hand. He slipped it around his waist and tightened it. He was feet from the two before he aimed his saber hilt at Galidraan. "And why do you have a Sith Fighter? Did you steal the ship?" He looks back to Lila.

"And why do you have a lightsaber? You think it is a toy? One who isn't even a Force user can't possibly master such a weapon like me.. "

03-17-2006, 11:20 PM
"It's not a Sith ship. Not anymore. I'm not the first Jedi to use it. Revan took this ship into the Unknown Regions after abandoning the Ebon Hawk the first time. It's been in my family ever since." Galidraan replied, reactivating his lightsaber in order to defend himself.

03-18-2006, 12:07 AM
Lila smiled. It was annoying because she wasn't falling for the bait easily. She said, "A lightsaber given to me by one who knew my family." Looking at the sith in front of her she then said, "A slip of the tongue will catch a fish but for you it will be your ending. A painful one brought on by you."

03-18-2006, 02:07 AM
He grinned and sprinted towards Lila while her saber was down. He spun towards her with his saber ignited, creating almost a copter effect as he spun, the saber near above his diaphragm. He landed and struck towards her, only to be deflected by Galidraan's saber.

He twirled the saber and set it near his armpit, pushing his hand out towards Galidraan as he raised his saber to attack, pushing him back a few feet with a cheap shot force push. He slid backwards and pulled into a backflip just in time to dodge a roundhouse kick from Lila. He landed firmly, twirling his saber and setting it out infront of him, horizontally.

03-18-2006, 06:56 AM
As the Sith did his backflip, Lila had put an extra spring in her limbs and did a forward flip to land behind him as he landed. With an extra Force of power, she in turn returned the cheap shot with a powerful side kiack to the back that propelled the Sith towards Galdraan.

03-18-2006, 11:42 AM
He caught his balance and flipped over Galidraan, landing near his open ship. He deactivated his lightsaber and sheathed it, hopping in his Sith fighter, closing the door and walking to the cockpit, starting it up and dropping out two turrets. The turrets began raining a hail of blaster fire at the two.

03-18-2006, 02:55 PM
"Morbo, reports indicate Terrance was attacked on Kashyyk." One of his managers reported to him. Morbo smiled and said, "Good the bounty seems to be taking affect on him."

03-18-2006, 04:16 PM
Galidraan began deflecting the turret shots with his lightsaber, but soon fled, jumping off the tree platform, falling into the Shadowlands.

03-18-2006, 04:16 PM
Lila didn't jump but rather she did something. Where she was standing, there was a blue light and it reappeared closer to the Wookies in an attempt to avoid laser fire. She reactivated her saber and tried to deflect those she could. Relying on the training Baba had given her she kept relatively out of harm's way. Wushi managed to scramble up the branches and jump on the cockpit of the fighter. He began to chew the cables as the fighter was moving in an attempt to bring it down.

03-18-2006, 10:24 PM
He smirked and pressed a button on the console, switching on an electrical field, used for killing off scavenger droids. The resulting shock sending Lila rolling off of the fighter.

He switched on the engines and took off into the air, turning towards them. He let loose several missles. The two missles barely passed over Lila's head as they slammed into the supports holding the area of the walkway up. He flew off, the structure due to collapse within seconds.

We'll meet again, i'm sure of it.

03-18-2006, 11:19 PM
((Uh it was Wushi on the fighter, not Lila))

Wushi, reeling from the shock recovered quickly and jumped into the wroshyr branches. Lila grabbed Galidraan and the Exerkis who had been watching and pulled them with her on the branches. The Wookies made it just before the structure collapsed. Lila was next to Galidraan and panting slightly, taking in deep breaths of relief.

03-19-2006, 12:09 AM
As Exerkis was grabbed, he noticed motion, and then blacked out for a second. He was in a wroshyr tree, and the platform had collapsed. Oh well, the Orocame could probably take care of himself. And just as he thought that, the Orocame appeared floating in front of them. "Well now," he said, "that was plenty exciting. Let's go back, shall we?" And as the words left his lips, a gateway appeared beside him, looking into a room of the facility. "After you." said Exerkis, gesturing to Lila.

03-19-2006, 02:16 AM
Lila was still panting, full of adrenaline. She looked at Exerkis with an expression that said, "What?" She then jumped lightly from the branch and landed lightly on her feet through the gate. She turned to wait for Wushi who made his way back into her bag and she waited for Exerkis and Galidraan.

03-19-2006, 02:51 AM
"Hire new poachers you say? This Exerkis and his group seem to be talented ones. No problem, get too it. Need more money anyways, hiring all these men." The managers nodded.

"Who was the one to confront Terrance. It was Exerkis, and reports indicate a lightsaber fight."

"Oh so a Jedi is following Exerkis. Or just somebody who wields a lightsaber. Anyways, we won't bother with him no longer. I do not want to send extra men after him. Plus, he's an enemy of Terrance and its Terrance who must be tought a lesson. However if he insults me again we will teach him a lesson. Anyways the rancors arrived. Have them drop them off at the fighting pit, I want them to start fighting right away. Bets have already been placed and people are anxious to see a fight. The profits will be enormous..."

03-19-2006, 01:06 PM
Exerkis jumped through the Gateway, rolling up and looking around. There was Lila, and the Orocame. Galdiraan he assumed was on his way. It mattered not. The Orocame noticed his landing, and shook his head. "Oh, that won't do at all. We must teach you flight immediately." And with that he began gathering that force around him again. "Now you noticed I am cloaked in the soulforce, you notice?" And Exerkis did the same.
"Good," the Orocame said, "Now you simply will the cloak to rise, and-" He was cut off as Exerkis whooshed into the air, circling the Orocame several times. "Ah, I see you are a fast learner. This is very good. Very good."

03-19-2006, 02:02 PM
As he flew off into space, he punched in the coordinates for Korriban. Within moments, his ship lurched into hyperspace.

03-19-2006, 04:49 PM
Galidraan sent a message to Lila and Exerkis. "Terrence has gone into hyperspace, I'm going to go after." He told them, jumping into his starfighter.

03-19-2006, 05:09 PM
"Why do you care if I am a fast learner?" Asked Exerkis.
"Not here. In my study." Replied Orocame, leading them away. As they arrived, Orocame began, "I was know by another name, once. Mave. I was apprenticed to the great master Reyshik. But things went awry. The fact is that I was constantly battling Orocame for control of my body. We have since come to terms, and we coexist in what he calls 'the nexus.' As one of his last solo acts, however, he took me, and this entire facility out of my dimension. What I mean by that is this: There are choices that are made. Every time a different choice is made, a path diverges. In this way, there are nigh-infinite universes, some very different and some not so different. Also, there are different universes every time chance is involved, such as in pazaak or dice. So what matters is this: When you were born, some years ago, I felt a tremor. Since then I have been seeking you, for I feel that you hold the secret to travelling between these dimensions. You see, that is one thing the Orocame refuses to tell me."
Suddenly, Orocame/Mave's voice changed, becoming different. "Damn straight! There are to many distractions in your home universe." That must be Orocame.
Mave continued, "I must train you, and together we may find the secret to travelling between dimensions, so that I may finally return home."

03-19-2006, 05:23 PM
Ferrille was sitting in the computer room of Morbo's estate on a separate floor. Watching the screens for any sight of Terrance. He really wanted the prize money for getting him. Plus Terrance insulted himself and his large slimy friend Morbo. Morbo had his own radar network set up, and Ferrille knew that Sith made ships usually had their own unique signals. A beeping set off froim the console, Ferrille grined "Gotcha" he said outoud.

"Morbo, I'm going after him...and Ill need some men." Morbo then brought in some of his best mercenaries. Several of them including Ferrille gathered at the docks and readied their arnaments, along with two war droids. Most carried blaster or disruptor rifles as their primary weapon. While others prefered to use pistols. All wore a good amount of armor, and two people in the group were even Mandalorian. Ferrille thought that this would be good enough to take Terrance. They boarded Ferrille's rusty old cargo freighter and took off.

"Listen boys, we are going to terminate a Dark Jedi on Korriban. Shoot to kill, and it would be best to use grenades and rapid fire. You know what they can do with a lightsaber. A large stack of credits will be waiting for us when we get back." Ferrille knew if anyone got back it would be him, he just took these fellows along to give him more time. But the crew nodded their heads and smiled anyways. Terrance's last display of combat showed that blasters probably would have little effect on him, and he knew better. On Ferrille' s lap lay a compact multishot rocket launcher about the size of a regular blaster rifle. The clip was just rather large though, and Ferrille had been saving it for a special occassion. "Let's see you block this Sithy."

03-19-2006, 05:25 PM
As his ship pulled out of hyperspace, he turned planetside, turning in docking codes and watching as they were accepted on a small LCD screen. He grinned and began his descent on Dreshdae.

03-19-2006, 11:41 PM
Lila replied to Galidraan, "Thanks. Call when you got something."
She watched the training Exerkis was doing. She was confused by this nonsense of dimensions but they sounded strikingly familiar. The voice of Mave sounded familiar as well. Being bold, she spoke, "One cannot travel through dimension for it leaves a hole where one travels. Each is a level of existence in its own right and shouldn't be disturbed. Where one moves life follows and in turn the spirits of the earth guide one down the rightful path."
She breathed a bit and added, "Your voice is familiar. I've heard it in my dream."

03-20-2006, 12:56 AM
As his ship landed, he got out of it and paid the docking fee, locking his ship and proceeding into the building. He looked around and headed left, toward the apartments.

03-20-2006, 06:52 PM
Orocame was affronted by the brashness of this 'Lila', but chose to say nothing. "If you please, Lila, I would prefer if my apprentice continued his training in private. That way, his thoughts can be more focused and we can accomplish more."

03-20-2006, 09:53 PM
Ferrille's rickety ship landed on the Dreshdae docks. It would be trouble looking for him in the whole settlement, but they would find himi eventually. "Ok, we aren't splitting up. I will need all of us when we see him. Looking for a Zabrak male, keep your eyes open. And dont do anything that will get us in trouble with the authorities. Lets move out!" the group of men strolled out of the ship into the settlement in search of Terrance.

So im guessing Czerka is in control here. and the Sith are all gone (well except Terrance)

03-20-2006, 10:24 PM
He heard a ship land and shrugged, getting a room and walking out of the apartments, heading into the main area, bumping into Ferrille. He stumbled a little and raised an eyebrow. "Watch where you're going," he said, walking past him.

03-20-2006, 11:35 PM
Ferrille and his entire group tunred around to look at the man realizing who it was. "Some character." Ferrille thoguht in his head. "Waste him!!!" Ferrille screamed and the seven of them plus the two war droids lowered their blasters and began to fire a barrage at Terrance's back. Simultaneously Ferrille fired a rocket at Terrance's feet hoping to blow him away.

03-21-2006, 12:19 AM
"Why do you wish me to leave? Has not one have a right to exist in the same place? All around are spirits to guide. They live in the earth, the water, the sky. The Jedi believe in the Force and that all things are connected. What do you believe in?" Lila wanted to know about this Orocame. Over her years alone she had learned what the lessons Baba had taught her meant. She was determined to understand this person for all that he was and she beseeched in the manner consistent when a child learns of Bushida.

03-21-2006, 10:24 AM
"Lila, I merely say this: the tenets of our order, the service of the force, do not seem to agree with you. This I understand, but why must my apprentice, who willingly joined, be impaired by constant interruptions. I don't seek to change your opinions, but please, take them elsewhere."

03-21-2006, 05:40 PM
Terrance leapt into the air before letting loose a mighty force push, the energy blowing the rocket the opposite direction and towards Ferrile, blowing up at his feet, sending three of his men flying, slamming into a wall and letting loose a large cloud of smoke.

When the smoke cleared, Terrance was no where to be found. Lost 'em..He said, ontop of the roof of the building, as there was an open vent above him leading to the roof. He had sealed it shut with his saber blade the second he got up there. He flipped up the hood to his robe and walked across the seemingly endless boiling hot roof towards the ruins of the abandoned Sith Academy laying past the building.

The atmosphere of the planet was horribly barren and dry, that's why they made shelter for the city of Dreshdae.

03-21-2006, 05:48 PM
"I am asking you what you believe in. I would like to know so that I may understand," Lila replied with a strong voice. It was one of thereasons Exerkis chose her for his crew. She was not one to back down easily.

03-21-2006, 06:01 PM
Galidraan used an old code on his fighter in order to land on Korriban without being shot down by the AA turrets, which worked effectively. He then got out, and headed for the Dreshdae settlement.

03-22-2006, 04:43 PM
He finally reached the edge of the building. He prepped up, and leapt off of it forward, flipping twice before landing gracefully onto the dust ball that was the ground, sending up a cloud of.. dust.

He slowly headed towards the ruins of the academy. The building wasn't completely gone, just eroded with time and some of it was caved in. He slipped in through a crack into the academy lobby, staying in place and glancing around the mess.

03-22-2006, 08:25 PM
"Damn." Nobody was hurt and recovered soon enough. They then began the search for Terrance again.

03-23-2006, 06:42 PM
"What do I believe in? Fine, I'll entertain you. I believe that the force wills things to happen, that it speaks to me, as it does, and that it is my job to relay that message to the Ta'Sedai so that we may make sure that it happens. We seek to better understand the force so that we may better fulfill its wishes."

03-23-2006, 07:08 PM
"As much as my people serve but we also protect. Our home is a haven for those in time of need. Where do think all the Jedi go if they were considered wiped out? They come to our home. We exist in the shadows and we 'see' what the Force wills and watch and do its bidding. We are not that different," Lila countered.

03-23-2006, 09:09 PM
Galidraan contacted Lila from his ship. "I've spotted Terrance heading for the old Sith Academy. I'm not sure why he's there, but it can't be good." He told her, raising his hood and going into the ruins of the old academy.

03-24-2006, 12:08 AM
Lila got an indication on her wrist console. She touched a button to acknowledge that she got the message but continued to gaze at the Orocame in the eye.

03-24-2006, 12:21 AM
Reading a holocron, he was in an abadoned portion of the ruins, still in one piece, but some of the transcribed history tablets and holocrons had been knocked on the ground and destroyed.

"These.. these are.. these can make me.. more powerful than before.." He knocked the holocron aay and headed outside into the valley of the Sith Lords, walking down a dirt path, jumping over fallen pillars, making his way into Naga Sadow's tomb.

03-24-2006, 12:41 AM
"WE AIN"T LEAVING WITHOUT HIS HEAD!" Ferrille barked at his group. This was the only man that had been able to escape Ferrille's grasp and he wanted to take him down. "I think he probably left the settlement. Lets go check the valley of the Sith Lords, that's probably why he's here."

03-24-2006, 07:43 PM
He ducked inside the tomb. It was dark, danky, moldy, and smelled of dust and grime. Yet, he pressed on, pulling his black bandana over his mouth as he continued, flipping up his hood and turning a corner, heading down a corridor, the Dark Side was overwhelming here.

He stopped a leaned against a wall, feeling breathless. Even just being here made his skin crawl and his breath leave his chest. He was worthy, but it won't stop him. He continued down the hall after a small rest, turning yet another corner and squeezing through a tiny slit on a door into a rather large dome-like room.

He glanced around and continued on, resting again. Even a powerful Dark Jedi like him couldn't take the pressure, or the atmosphere, as this place hasn't been visited and hasn't seen fresh air in ages; so the atmosphere would be somewhat.. hard to breath in.

03-26-2006, 12:38 AM
Karl was bored, no doubt about it. He went to talk to Morbo, "Morbo, I love your hospitality but hell, I need something to do."

03-27-2006, 10:37 PM
"Need something to do huh? Here's list of people who owe me a lot money, and it says how much. There's about 5 of them, bring back their money or bring back their heads." Morbo smiled and let Karl go off.
