View Full Version : Cantina 15: Apocalypse

The Galaxy is in turmoil:
Lord Cracken, son of the emperor, is dead, and the Imperial Remnant threatens to tear itself apart. Meanwhile, the Heloki have been unleashed, and the Prophecies of the Blood Scrolls are close to coming to pass...

-------------------------------------------------
Coruscant, Waste Reclamation Facility

*Deac, after hours of searching, is surprised to come across a garbage dump as the source of the voice telling him to come closer.*

Deac: This is it. I've finally snapped. After everything.

*The voice speaks once again in his head, tiny in timbre, but suddenly crystal clear.*

Voice: Are you the only one left?

*Something coalsces in the air in front of Deac, shimmering like fog.*

Voice: The guardians of peace and justice are turning on each other. While friends parry friends' blows, the world eats itself. Soon now. Too soon. Almost too late to stop.

*The pearly mist drifts, one moment appearing almost humanoid, the next switching to a form more indeterminate.*

Voice: Once I destroyed planets with a snap of my fingers. Now with you, I will redeem myself. Oh, and I have waited for this, Deac Starkiller. I have waited for a very long time.

*Deac draws back and ignites his one remaining lightsaber*

Deac: I hope I don't disappoint.

If this is the start of a new story, I'm going to sticky this thread and unsticky the Cantina 14 threads (if that's possible).

((Thanks, Wildstar! You beat me to it.

Not a bad opening, Deac, but you did forget BD's stuff, as I'm sure he'll point out if he pops his head in here. ;)))

Coruscant, Waste Reclamation Facility

Voice: Are you going to attack me? Well... if that's what you want. It won't do you or I much good. Not that much of anything you people does you lots of good. Still, we can't do much to hurt each other. I've long been beyond any being's touch. Except Hers, of course.

*Deac is clearly taken aback by this. He keeps his lightsaber drawn, but moves into a more passive stance*

Deac: I can't touch you? Must suck, being insubstantial.

*Deac deactivates [I love that word, I always want to read it as DEAC-tivate] his lightsaber*

Deac: What do you want from me then, if you're not out to kill me?

P.S. reply to PtH, Deac!

EDIT: Erk, sorry Scar, I'll get to Tatooine ASAP.))

Coruscant, Waste Reclamation Facility

Voice: Must 'suck'? You have no idea. What it's like to have no body, you mean. It's been hard to keep the world in focus... no, not world, worlds. Worlds without number. Dizzying. You lose focus. You lose all understanding. Forget how to see, hear, touch, speak. I don't doubt I would've dissolved into a sea of stardust, floating mindlessly around the universe for eternity, if not for...

You want to know what I want? Redemption. I want to save the galaxy. And I'm going to use you to do it. Why you? Because you won't - you can't - say no. You are psychologically incapable of refusing to save the galaxy, of turning down the chance to be a champion. That's what I mean when I say I know you, Deac Starkiller. I know you're going to say yes.

Deac
10-08-2007, 07:37 PM
*Deac holsters his lightsaber*

Deac: Why? Why should I accept?

*Deac ponders this to himself for a moment*

Why is it? I always seem to do it. Is it because I saw half my world burn at the hands of the Empire, not once, but twice? Is it because I think I owe an alien god that saved me from becoming another laboratory experiment? Or is it because...*he remembers a blue haired young woman from a long time ago*...that I owe it to her. I "think all of the above" probably covers it.

Deac: Alright, you want to save the galaxy, and you want me to help. It won't be my first time. I'll help you, but you're going to need to tell me who you are, what's threatening the galaxy, and how we're going to save it.

Unla Shardes System, orbit Gas Giant 1, Helix-6 construction site

*The view was specatular, the enomious structure ment to appear as a figure 8. Made from metal found a mile underneith the surface of the colonial planet. When activated the structure creates a wormwhole from both openings. One was ment outgoing from this system. One coming from the Alpha Centauri system.

Talon grined at the opertunities that would outcome of this. He sat in the rear of the shuttle craft as it steamed onward to it's destination. The HQ of the contruction efforts rested on a smaller orbital platform tethered to the central platform that connected, what would in time, be the two vast openings. Large enough to send battle cruisers through...

Talon winced as a sharp pain in his mind enteres. No. It can't be...*

Behomoth *telepathically* 'I find it quite insteresting to find you in this neck of the universe, and I thought I got away from you. Wait, wasn't you who threw me into an oblivion? Good thing I still had my support system...'

Talon *replying back* 'Quiet. It's none of your business how I'm here, or what I'm doing here. Stay out of my mind.'

Behomoth 'It's your fault in the first place. You made me, rather you made Davin. And he shared a piece of your, what was, human soul...'

Talon 'I said quiet!'

Behomoth 'Touchy. You still trying to get that back? The man in the white suit meat you again? All your power, and you're still a silly sod.'

*Talon shakes his head hard. And forces the pain away. Bastard, he thought, the excuse for invading my thoughts, only becuase we had once shared a human soul. They're both demons. Full blood. Vicious, killing monsters. And for how meny hundreds of years? Pathetic how Behomoth carries on.*

"If he's here, then how long has he been here? Does he know whats out there that I might be able to expect? No. I don't expect him to be. I'll have to arrange another meeting with my old friend..."

Kuuki

EDIT: Erk, sorry Scar, I'll get to Tatooine ASAP

((damn, almost 4 mounts and counting. I wonder what it means when you say i'll do it eventually...

btw: you all suck. :P
i've desided that I need to break reality, cus why? it sucks.
Kyle: post again.))

Tatoonie: Basement Lounge

*Behomoth rubs his temples, the strain causes a little irritation for himself as well. But it surprised him that Talon would find his way out here in this universe. Where ever it was he was lurking. Apparently controlling an empire on Earth and the Solar System wasn't good enough.

Behomoth wondered if Talon ran into that man in the white suit again.*

behind behomoth "Tell me there demon? Looks of you, you needs some medicine..." *refering to the apparent headache

Behomoth "Sung'chi, can it. Don't you have something better to do? What's the news on more contracts. My wallet hasn't been getting enough attention as of late."

Sung'chi "Was about to head down myself. But I wasn't going to go down and tell you about it. You seemed not interested as of late. You are an assasin aren't you?"

Behomoth "Well since I did that mission with the military-man, and got a little bit of a licking from that, what do they call em, Jedi... I haven't had the need to go into the inner sector." He stands up from his seat and heads to the elevator to the lower level.

"There better be some decent work..."

Huh. I suppose I should ask the obvious: Anyone interested in continuing? I am, but only if a majority of the old players are... :)

I was supposed to spin up an apocalypse in this thread. I'm sure I can still oblige. (And, if anyone's interested in helping out with it, we could do that too! A co-apocalypse?)

(Yes, I know that I should be talking about this in the discussion thread, but that's silly if we don't end up starting the thread again. And with my magical mod powers of magicalness, I can always move it there.)

I'm waiting on a home internet connection, so I need a couple more weeks.

I think we should do a "reboot" though, the Cantina has just got too complex to follow, I have no idea where we are these days.

We need to streamline the story somewhat. I would suggest that everyone write a summary od what their characters have done and we try to create a synopsis, rather than going back over the last two threads to try and work out all the nuances of what we were doing a year and a half ago.

I totally missed this post, but that's a great idea, BD.

Hey, we could always go with "a summary of what their characters have done that we care about." XD

Maybe even have a semi-reboot in the style of a time skip, in which anything we don't care about anymore gets resolved offscreen. :)

After all, the title of the thread is "Apocalypse", not "Apocalypse: Now". ;P

I honestly can't believe it. Here I am, sat supposedly working in the uni computer lab, showing this someone else who used to RP on Forums, and here you guys all are!

I'd love to start this up again in some way, shape or form. The Cantina was meant a lot to me during it's prime.

A reboot might be needed, or maybe just a simpler summary, as we've got DC comics complicated in here these days.

Whatever happens, it's good to see you guys back here again.

Yay, Deac! Good ta see you. :D

"DC comics complicated"... yeah, I think that's a pretty good description there. XD (You know, I taught a comics class at my university...)

I'm going to go with BD's idea as a solution, as I said earlier. :)

I figure I'll ask Admiral and Cracken if they want to be dragged back in once we've got this back together.

Anyone wanna put a time skip to a vote? I'll just go with the majority.

pls dont tell me that you ordered said router from your isp...

you can get a decent one for like 40 bucks, and you dont have to pay anything to your isp for it

i know a few people who went that path...

..just saying...

Deac
11-18-2008, 04:40 PM
How ironic. This is the second time a router's caused us problems in the cantina. I remember my old EVIL router that wouldn't let me post more than 3 lines to a forum.

Heck, I remember having problems posting in this thread after my 28.8kb modem died. I'll say that again 28.8kbps modem. As in DIAL UP

Kuuki
11-18-2008, 10:02 PM
honestly, like i have stated, you dont have to have your cable or dsl internet's permission to run a personal home network

just setup it up yourself with your own equipment, that way, yeah you'd pay for that initial 40 to 70 bucks (that being if you buy a linksys or a anything considered 'decent',...

That's all!!!)

that's all! the only thing you'd pay for is your connection, you'd pay extra for that 'professional' to come into your house an install the same router that you can pick up in a store and do it yourself
where if you paid the professional, not only would pay for the work, you would pay extra for the router,...

you are paying for an ip adress, your router that you put in is that soul adress, any other computer would be interal to your own network, covered by your own reouter's ability, normally up to 256 computers, which no one has...

BattleDog
11-19-2008, 02:52 PM

can we PLEASE END the story? :P

I know we all WANT to :P

Redwing
07-16-2013, 03:35 AM
Do we?

The problem is, I don't remember what I was planning. I bet no one else remembers either. I do still have a number of old notes, but it would take a while for me to dig through them & compile, and I doubt anyone else kept notes.

And we've probably mostly moved on as writers, so we probably wouldn't want to do the stuff we'd planned out.

I think it's something of a shame that I forgot about the reset idea, but ah well. I wouldn't want to finish it without at least Deac and Admiral, and hopefully Cracken, BD, WJ, and even Rogue15 (and you of course ;P but you're already here) and that's a tall order. Get most or all of those people involved, AND get all my notes back together, AND reread the whole damn thing (a requirement for me, though not necessarily everyone else)... Yeah. A very tall order.

FWIW, side note: I see almost every message posted in this forum or in RSRP (or in the Pilot's Lounge) within a week or two thanks to the magic of email alerts, so if everyone else magically shows up someday after years of silence, ...we'll see.

EDIT: Oh, and I just remembered. A big part of my plan (and Admiral's) for the end of Cantina required finishing Postlude to Holocaust, so we'd have to deal with that beast too. Although in that case I do recall more of what exactly we had planned.

*interesting

;)

I actually do have a rough plan for ending these RPG stories if enough people sign on to it.


We'd have a group re-read of the RPGs, with a separate commentary thread for us all to post in. This would also act as a nonsensical get-together, and would probably take a month for each RPG, Cantina month and PtH month. 2 months
Once we all finished (and said so in the thread), we'd make a list of plot threads we wanted to wrap up. 1 week
We'd then make a list of everything we still want to happen in the RP -- leaving plenty of blanks to be played out while we actually, well, roleplayed. Could be either really long or really short (probably a minimum of three things). 1 week
Finally, we'd play out the ends of both RPGs; PtH first, then Cantina. 6 to 9 months


So the entire thing would probably take a year total.

It wouldn't be even close to as in-depth as the original plan, but that's never going to happen. I would happily sign on to the plan above, but I'd never be able to resume the way it was before. ;)
