And here we are, Cantina part 7. We've all come a long way from our humble beginnings.

Usual rules, no godmoding,no need to re-post chars, etc.

The story:

Deac, Rwos, Flax, Odin, Cracken and Starr must all (for various reasons) find a device called the Time Matrix and take control of it, lest the timeline be altered in a most horrible way...

And so, the parties are separated and arrive on a strange planet. They do not know how they got here, but they know why they are here...

To fight for the Future...

"Not yet!!"

It was dark.

It was windy.

It was foggy.

And there was a fifteen-foot-tall gray behemoth that looked like someone had carved it out of stone standing on the mountainside in front of Termand Rwos, very much alive and very much startled to see a gargoyle appear out of thin air right in front of it.

Rwos: Sithspit! I knew he'd do this!

"RAAAAAAAAUUUUUUUHHHHHHHHHH!!!"

The creature didn't seem to happy to see him. Apparently, it didn't take kindly to strangers appearing in the middle of its evening meal. Because that was what it was doing. Eating something. Something unrecognizable.

The behemoth swiped a giant gray hand at Rwos. Rwos ducked and tumbled several feet down the steep slope before regaining his balance. The beast came lumbering after him.

Then a lightsaber appeared through its skull. A crimson red one.

Starr Hailfire leaped off the beast's head as it fell and landed in front of Rwos.

Starr: This place is strong with the dark side, alien. You're nowhere near a match for me now.

*Starr raised his hand and it began to glow purplish-blue. Rwos readied himself to deflect...

But nothing came out. The glow fizzled and died away.*

Starr: What in the Force?!?

*Starr raised his hand at Rwos again and concentrated. Nothing more than a fizzle of electricity, instead of the expected stream of deadly lightning, came out.*

Starr: WHAT IS THIS???

Rwos: Didn't that lizard thing say something about dimming all of your connections to the Force?

Starr: SCUM!! *Starr raised his lightsaber and rushed at Rwos. The two exchanged blows and parries with difficulty, trying to keep on the mountainside* If I can't fry you, I'll settle for second best: Slicing you into little pieces!

Odin finds himself in a grassy fields. Nothing wrong except he is all alone. Calling out: Is any one there? In the distance Odin hears the sounds of his confused son Vidar.

Vidar: Father where are you?

Odin:Over here.

Finally meeting a couple of minutes later. The two pick a direction and begin walking and have a casual converstation.

Odin:You know the prophecies well. Does anything mention this happening?

Vidar:Yes father I believe there is one does. In a time of trouble the galaxy will tremble in fear. Fire will be unleashed from greaving race for an untimely death of a beloved lord.

It goes on to say that: In the past hope lies, ultimate weapon can save the galaxy, or doom it to unending terrors. Beloved Lord must seek, the ultimate weapon to put write premature Ragnorak. Danger lies along the path, evil also seeks the weapon. The galaxy lies on a razor edge. On Misstep by chosen warriors, and evil shall begin a new reign of terror. If the chosen warriors are succesful, greiving race will no longer grieve, the galaxy will no longer tremble, fire will not be unleashed.

Odin:And what is your interpetation.

Vidar:Well as in the other prophecies you are the beloved lord. The rest of the Aesir are teh grieving race. The fire and premature Ragnorak are the Resonance torpedoes. I believe that you are not meant to die yet. Currently we are in the second part seeking the ultimate weapon which would be the time matrix. Now this is the first time it mentions chosen warriors. I believe those to be your compains Deac, Rwos and the others. Evil is obviously Starr, and Cracken. If we don't reach the matrix before they do, Then the rest of the galaxy is doomed.

Odin:I concur, so we should get moving.

The two wonder off seeking a starport.

((OOS: Remember, we're all on the same planet, just a ways apart. Death will be here to play the part of the Darkstar in a day or so))

*Rwos and Starr duel along the mountainside, parry for parry and slash for slash*

Rwos: Don't you think this is a bit premature? Didn't your master say something about a truce? Getting along?

Starr: Do you know where we are, Termand Rwos? This is the Sith planet of Renare. This mountain we stand on houses the most vast knowledge repository ever known to the galaxy. *Starr yells above the wind* There is no way in or out of this planet except one! And that secret died with Palpatine!

Rwos: Seems the Time Matrix isn't just useful for time travel then?

Starr: I have seen this place only in my visions! Yet it is exactly how I remember!

*Starr turns and runs up the mountain. Rwos turns off his lightsword and chases after him, scaling the rockface as only a gargoyle can, using clawed hands and feet to climb faster*

*Flax awakens on fidgedly cold plain.*

Flax: Hello, is anyone there?

*He wraps his cloak around himself.*

[Redwing: Has Death been briefed on the Darkstar? She'll need to know everything it's done, etc]

*Deac appears on the top of a high, windy mountain, dust blowing around his feet. He is surrounded by high cliffs and valleys. He turns, to see a crude path down...*

((Not yet; I wasn't sure if her character would actually have the avatar, or have just taken the name from his master - Reletha.

@everyone else: next time the Time Matrix jumps, we should all end up closer together then the previous time; close enough to have a chance at finding each other))

*Starr disappears around the mountainside ahead of Rwos. Apparently he knew where he was going. The thick fog was clearing higher up the mountain, and Rwos could see a path perhaps unused for centuries leading upwards...*

The Odin and Vidar, come upon a road. After a couple of minutes of discussion, the two decide to follow the road north, into the mountains.

07-22-2002, 02:33 AM
OOS: Uh, where does Katani come in? Are we going to continue the thread previously left off where he'd just found Reletha's ship? Or has that already passed? If so, what happened?

Redwing
07-22-2002, 03:59 AM
((OOS: Reletha's apprentice, not Reletha. And yes, that's already passed. Ken'atra has already used the Time Matrix to come to this planet.))

Deac
07-22-2002, 10:04 AM
*Deac feels an all too familiar evil...not just the darkside...but something else*

You're back, aren't you. All that messing about with time has got you back.

Soon....

07-22-2002, 01:09 PM
*Cracken awoke in a cold hall way. The remnants of a terrible headache was fading into memory, and lights began to flicker on. He slowly shook off the weary-ness he felt and looked around. Suddenly, he used the force to hit a switch, opening two thick durasteel doors. Starr blew past, and Cracken once again flexed his might and pushed the attacker to the ground, and he hit the switch to close the doors. A figure got up, and tried to make it, but the doors slammed up witha chilling clang. Starr came back, and helped his master up.

Where in the Sith were they?*

Cracken: Starr, where are we?

Redwing
07-22-2002, 08:26 PM
((OOS: I assume then that the Darkstar was allowed to return when the Starkiller avatar reentered Orthos))

Starr: Master...this is the Sith world of Renare. Somewhere in this mountain is Renare itself. It's the galaxy's greatest information depository. Your father was the last to tread here...besides the beasts. The secret of the path to this world died with him.

*Starr looks around* I cannot sense who else has come...the lizard that sent us here has somehow..."dimmed" our powers. *shaking with fury* What shall we do?


----------


*Outside, Termand Rwos attempts to pry the doors open. Unfortunately, durasteel was a little beyond even gargoyle strength. Especially a gargoyle used to drawing on magic that suddenly can't do that anymore. Rwos only succeeded in hurting his hands.

One option. He drew his lightsword and shoved the point into the door. The durasteel began melting...*

((Oss, our characters will be jumping around, time, maybe they will meet up with their past selves, imagine two of everyone around))




Odin: That Lizard thing said the Aesir are savages. This disturbs, me. First chance we get, head for Asgard. I have a feeling that the ancient war is still being waged. If so we must put an end to it. Not to mention we would then have an army in this timeline.

Vidar: That is a very disturbing thought father. Look a town is coming up. Lets find a Cantina and rest. I wonder if they will show proper manners concering guests.

Odin: Probably not, few follow the ways of our people.
_________________

Entering the town, the two immediatly sense evil surronding the place. Cautously the two enter the local Cantina.

Odin: Be careful I don't like the smell of this place, reeks of evil.

Vidar: I'm ready father Vidar takes a flanking position, when a patron; a sith, steps up to Odin, with the intentions of starting a fight.

Sith: You do not belong here, stranger. You are not Sith. [the other occupants stand up, obviously they were ready for a fight]

Odin: Mind your own business or lose your head.

Sith: Lose my head. I don't think so. You will bow your heads now before the Sith brotherhood, hand drops down to reveal a lightsaber or di.....

[Odin becoming losing his temper, Odin whirls around, and with his bare hands rips the Sith's head off. In one move Vidar unsheaths his sword, and throws it into the closest enemy, killing him. To their surprise and joy, 10 of the patrons stood up, and pulled out lightsabers, forming a circle to the now back to back father and son]

Odin:Looks like this wasn't just an innocent town.

Vidar: That is an understatement, look at all these Sith, we're going to have fun.

Odin: Yup, who ever kills the least will buy the first round. Make it challenging, Lightsabers only. No powers.

Vidar: Your on.

Odin tageted the two in front of him as his first victims. Throwing the head of the fallen Sith. Odin ducks under the swing of one of the sith, Turning on his own saber Odin thrust it into the stomach of the Sith that just swung. Vidar, pulled out his two sabers. Smilling viscously he Rushed three sith grouped together. In a panic The Sith that Vidar rushed killed each other when turning on the lighsabers. When the two were finished Vidar bested his father by one. Blood stained the walls, the Cantina was oddly empty.

Vidar:I won, you must get the first round.

Odin:I see you have been practicing while I was away. However these were not true Sith. They were much two weak for that. I believe that we just stumble on a group of Apprentices.

Vidar:I agree, they didn't even try any force powers on us. True Sith wouldn't do that. Lets have a drink and keep going.

Odin:Very well.

07-22-2002, 10:25 PM
((OOS: So far, that depends on where the Darkstar goes...

None of us who are tied to the Time Matrix can use our powers normally, except the Darkstar himself...no super-Force powers. Relatively weak Force push (or hitting switches) would be a limit. Rwos doesn't use the Force, but without his teleporter he can't draw on his home universe's magic. He only has a sort of residue, making him also on a much lower level.))

07-23-2002, 12:31 AM
((I know, like I said, the sith Odin and Vidar encountered were obviously just begining their training. If you noticed they didn't use any powers. They do know that their powers are diminished but not by how much. Also that is why I said they might find their past selves....))

Deep inside Renare, far from prying eyes, a solitary figure stands. Illuminated only by the soft light from the glowlamp in front of him, he is a leader like no other. His is the greatest brotherhood of Sith ever to traverse the heavens. He bent people, objects, circumstances to his will. He harnessed the power of the stars, of the rocks. Now though, new people were intruding. A gargoyle... two new sith, ones he hadn't felt before... a Starkiller. This final was the most surprising of all. Starkiller was supposed to be away, not on Renare. He stretched out with his senses, feeling the surrounding space... and stopped. Several of his newest recruits were missing. He hadn't felt their deaths, they were just cut off. Added to the ones these new people had killed, things were looking down, but looking positive as well. He'd been practicing lately, and he'd yet to have the chance to try out some new, rather painful techniques. Well, when he had these insolent additions captured, they'd be perfect test dummies...

Deac
07-24-2002, 08:09 AM
Want another round, Starkiller?

*Rocks begins to fall. Deac looks up and sees the mountain collapsing above him and leaps down onto the valley floor*

Hahahahaha!

*The Darkstar avatar appears*

I'd thought we'd have a chat, catch up on old times. The lower planes aren't noted for conversation.

Why are you here?

Didn't you here? "Ragnarok" took place. This galaxies, anyhow, technically setting me free. But, look at you, Orthos has your avatar...

Then I'm sure he'll be along.

Oh no he won't. Orthos is dying, suspended between life and death. He will never recover. And Alminstar's trapped with him. Now...if you don't mind, I believe one of the individuals, Cracken is his name, might like to meet me.

Cmdr. Cracken
07-24-2002, 12:11 PM
*Cracken and Starr continue there trek in the catacombs of the mountain. His father knew of this place. why didn't his holocron tell him of this? maybe it decided he wasn't ready. no matter, what abilities of the force he had was good enough. His intuition was not daunted by the meddeling of that creature. They came across a door, and he put his hand on the hand ID pad. It surprisingly opend for him, and revealed a grand audience chamber. They walked in, and the doors clanged behind them.*

*Flax took another look about him, this was not a plain at all, his vision was so obscured by the snow that he had not seen the cliff, the steep slope on the other side, he was on a mountain.*

*Flax sensed a strange disterbance further down the slope, somthing dark.*

Deac
07-25-2002, 03:31 PM
*The Darkstar vanishes from Deac's sight, leaving him to walk the valley floor alone and worried. Meanwhile, the Darkstar has located Cracken and appears in front of him*


You seek power, Lord Cracken, and I am that power. I am the power that Syrnl Darkstar made the rivers of planets run red with blood. I am the power that can destroy Deac Starkiller. Invite me in...

Cmdr. Cracken
07-26-2002, 02:03 AM
*Starr stared ahead into the dimly lit room. Across he could see several doors. He had seen this in his vision...and yes...to get to Renare, they had to enter...which door was it? There were five. And what was the code?

A lightsaber would do for the code. If only he could remember which door...

He turned to his master to ask for advice. But Cracken was distracted, staring at something else...
Cracken waved to his apprentice, signaling him to carry on, and Cracken began to pace*

Now, Darkstar is it? i tend to get you and that nitwit confused. obviously, we both want the same thing. You want Deac dead, I want Deac dead. no if ands or buts. The only problem is... *Cracken stopped, and started at the apperition* We also both want the same thing. rule over the galaxy. obviously, that presents a problem, since i have birthright to the Throne from my father, and you.... well, i don't quite know about you.

See, in the time i come from, my father died, i think you know that, and that rebellion managed to take over. I HAD THE REBELLION ON IT'S KNEES... until Deac decied to intervine. pitiful fool couldn't accept the future, i suppose. *Cracken resumed pacing* Now, being as my fathers regime went, only one could have the throne at any givin time. Me. his SON. i think you understand my unwillingness to relent my body, that;s what i assume you want, to you. I wish to rule because it's my Divine Right from teh Force.

*He stops* unless you have something else in mind, i'm afraid i will have to decline.
*Crackens' mind suddenly stops. This... BEING can use the Force to it's fullest... has Cracken made a critical error?*

Asgard…what a disgusting word. *his eyes focus with evil intend on the screen in front of him and when he finds what he wants his lips form into a sneer. The mere word causes hatred to flare up in him and he growls slightly in the back of his throat. He’ll stop them and, if he can find a way, he’ll make sure they’ll suffer eternally for what they have done. The Aesir will pay for the crimes they have committed against him. Oh, they will pay dearly.* They will regret the day my family died. *A strand of dark hair falls in front of his eyes, but he is too immersed in what he is doing to be distracted by a trivial thing as that. He scans the information in front of him and suddenly he leans closer, a viral grin spreading across his face* That’s it; it’s so simple. All I have to do is keep that stupid war going. *His eyes narrow and his voice turns icy* All I have to do is kill the peace delegation.

*Rwos finally melts a hole in the doors and smashes the section in with his fists. He climbs through.

Ahead is a cold, winding hallway. He could sense something, however...something oddly familiar. And evil. He couldn't place the memory...almost as if it had been blocked...or wiped away...

He crouches to all fours and gallops down the hallway, eyes glowing brightly. No time to lose...*

Deep inside his moutaint hideaway, the strange presence continued his vigil. Things were expanding though. Each of his prey was coming closer, and a new one had joined them. Unexpected, and unlooked for, the Darkstar had become a force again. Now, if only they'd continue on, just a bit further. He would soon have them trapped, including this one who seemed to be causing trouble in the database. There'd be no one to stop him this time.

((OOS: Deac is gone for two weeks...thus, with Deac's permission, I'm disabling his character. [any of you can run into him, you just can't wake him up ;)] Also with Deac's permission [and with experience] I'm going to be RPGing the Darkstar for that time))

Deac thought he sensed a presence behind him. He whirled, placing his hands on his lightsabers. But there was nothing there; nothing but a pile of rocks. So he began walking again.

Then he was down, rolling on the ground, only catching a glimpse of the fifty-foot "pile of rocks" that had just clubbed him over the head. And for the second time in less than a day, Deac Starkiller was knocked unconscious.

----------

Starr continued forward to the five doors as the Darkstar spoke to Cracken.

You decline? A pity. So much, we could have done so much together. Syrnl did, before his pathetic "redemption". I can sense that you need power, Lord Cracken. Well, I am power, and you only have to reach out and take it.

----------

The hallway ended at a door. Rwos stuck his hand on the lockpad. Nothing happened, which didn't really surprise him. However...these doors weren't like the outside blast doors...they looked like they could be pried apart, if you were strong enough.

Rwos pried his claws into the crack were they joined and began to pull them apart. He could hear the lock mechanism giving as they slowly came apart...and then they finished opening of their own volition.

In front of him was a grand audience chamber. Lord Cracken stood in the middle. Starr was at the far end. In front of Cracken was something that looked like black smoke.

The smoke somehow gave the impression of turning and looking at Rwos. Termand Se'enth Rwos? I thought I sensed you around. Remember me?

07-29-2002, 01:48 AM
Things were going perfectly. Now Rwos had joined the other three, in the audience chamber, to which there was no exit, unless he so chose. Starkiller had been knocked unconcious, and the trap was ready to be set. Each of them would be his.

07-30-2002, 12:20 PM
*cracken was thinking...... he couldn't trust this being, but he did offer him a one up on the competition. And maybe this thing could tell him where the Time Matrix was.... none the less, if he needed an out, he DID have one.... though that did require much concentration and access to the Force..... an interesting predicament. At that moment, Rwos decided to show his ugly face inside the audience chamber. Cracken truned to the ghostly being*

Darkstar, what guarentee will i have... if any, that after this is all over, i will regain my body, if possession is your thing?

((I'm finally back)).

Odin and Vidar continued to walk towards the mountains. Besides the one bloody encounter their trip has been uneventful. Finding an abandoned speeder, the two hot wire the vechile and head off at a much faster rate to the mountains.

Finally deciding to rest, they stop the speeder, and search for a sheltered spot. After 15 minutes of searching, they finally find a larger enough area under some large rocks. Taking turns sleeping and standing watch the night passes without any incidents.

Getting up, they walk towards the speeder to only find that something destroyed it.

((OOS: Admiral, you just put yourself bloody hours ahead of us :D))

"Possession" is not my "thing". Wh-

Rwos: It isn't? What do you call what you did to me, then?

You were a fool. You-

Starr: *returning to Cracken's side and staring at Rwos* Master, do I have permission to eliminate this little worm?

*The Darkstar suddenly sounds agitated* I'm so sorry, but I must go. I'll be back again, Lord Cracken...if you survive. *The Darkstar breaks up into smoke and vanishes into the cracks*

Rwos: What... *he begins to feel dizzy. He can feel some sort of drug filtering through his skin...invisible gas...Cracken and Starr had already fallen... He could barely stand...but maybe because he was a gargoyle he...could...resisssss......

Rwos joined the others on the floor in a dead faint.

Above them all, Ken'atra Sorack continues to search the Renare database.*

((OOS: That was to keep us all in the same time frame...I suppose superthrawn's character can take responsibility. ;)))

The trap had been sprung. Now, the creature had them where he wanted. Three had already been captured, and a steady diet of sedatives was keeping them quiet until the right time came. Even now, his agents outside the mountain were taking care of the pesky Odin and Vidar, and lugging the already unconcious forms of Flax and Deac back to the hideaway.

Each of the heroes awoke inside some sort of dark room, chained individually to a slab of stone with Force-strengthened binders over their wrists and ankles. Occasionally one would let out a small groan, but would be silenced quickly by the "medic" standing by their side. Each of the medics was constantly dripping a small amount of sedative into the captives, keeping them alert but drained. The only illumination provided by several torches placed at seemingly random intervals on the walls. In front of them stood a shrouded figure, a bit bent over from years, and quite pale, but otherwise healthy. He just stood there and stared at them for quite a while, until finally, he decided that it would be prudent to speak.

"Hello, my captives. Welcome to the Pit of Incarceration. Here, you will be kept prisoners until you divulge all information I want from you, then I kill you. It's a simple system really, and there is no hope. So don't even think of trying to escape. I guess we should start with the easiest one."

Turning to look at Deac, a look of concentration crosses his face, and then he relaxes.

"He was asleep. It was very easy to find what I needed from him. I hope you all have fun on your quests with the Time Matrix. Of course, I'll kill you before you ever can leave."

Once more turning to Deac, he produces a lightsaber from the folds of his robe, and walking at a crisp pace over to where he was restrained, he ignited it, and in a frenzy of fury, chopped his head cleanly off. When the smoke had cleared and the impromptu projectile had come to rest, he turned to look at the rest of the prisoners.

"Now then, who would like to go second?"

OOS: Admiral, Battledog, I apologize. Redwing is mad at me for my little dip into godmoding in capturing you w/o giving you a chance to fight back. If you're outraged, we can go back and to this again, but I think that would just be wasting time, personally, and it would make it much less fun for all the characters who are sedated at that time, because they'd be taken out of the game. Give me a shout back on this one guys.

Admiral
08-01-2002, 02:37 AM
((OOS. Redwing: I did that since my characters were isolated from everyone else. That and I don't know if I would be able to post regularly just yet. Superthrawn, I don't really mind, but in your post did you just kill Deac....))

08-01-2002, 02:47 AM
((OOS: It wasn't that necessarily, it's the mode of capture. They could have easily won a fight. Instant knockout gas? Not much you could do against that, especially sans Force/magic, or any kind of warning. But a fight? They could have easily won, except you said "they didn't".

That might be irrelevant soon though. And you didn't actually state that you captured Odin or Vidar, so that should be left up in the air till Admiral replies.

edit: And there ya go. Admiral, do you think you'll be able to describe Asgard any? Cuz that's the next stop. Ken'atra can only take so long to get information before he's off is what I mean))

*Ken’atra sighs and moves away from the endless stream of the database. He’s done collecting all the info that he needs and not a moment to soon. If he had to read another line of that dry, rambling and completely mind-numbing drabble he would go insane. Oh well, whoever said changing time was easy…or fun for that matter. A strand of black hair falls in front of his eyes.* Grrr…that’s it! *He traps the strand of offending hair between his fingers and glares at it. As he glares at it it starts to shrink until it is short enough not to bother him anymore, but then a pang of guilt clutches his heart. Isn’t that the strand that his mother would always play with? She always told him to never change it cause it gave him personality and made him ‘cute as a button’ (whatever that meant). And hadn’t he, with all the zeal of a young child, promised to always keep that strand of hair for her? He forgot; he forgot his promise to his mother* Details are slipping… *the strand of hair that always irritates the living heck out of him grows back to its former length and dangles in front of his eyes as if in triumph. He glares at it again; swearing that if it weren’t for his mother it would be gone in a second. Oh but aren’t these the emotions that are ever so dangerous to a Sith: love, devotion, happiness. They are all emotions that the mere memory of his former family stirs up, but the reality of their slaughter brings forth much more Sithly qualities. Anger. Pain. Revenge. And the never ending Hate he has for the people responsible.* Oh stop wallowing in self-pity, Ken’atra. You have better things to do. *And just like that all unwanted thoughts and emotions are whisked away with a flick of his hand as he touches the Time Matrix and concentrates on where he wants to be* I’ll be seeing you again soon mom… *And just like that, he’s on his way*

*Rwos awoke. Or something like it. Was he dead? No...he was alive...but...something...

His mind cleared just a little bit. Enough for him to try to make sense of the situation.

He seemed to be bound to a stone slab. He couldn't move his body at all. There was a cloaked figue standing on the other end of the room, saying something that was hard to make out.

...captives...elcome to th...Incarceration. Here, you will b...prisoners until...all information I want from you, then I kill...simple system...there is no hope. So don't...trying to escape. I guess we should start with the easiest one."

What on earth was this creature doing? Why had he captured them? He wanted...information? He wanted to get information from them, then kill them? Figures. Wait..."Start with the easiest one"?

He was asleep. It was very easy...find what I needed from him. I hope you all have fun on your quests with the Time Matrix. Of course, I'll kill you before you ever can leave.

The hell. He knew about the Time Matrix. He---

The man walked over to Deac, and sliced his head off. If Rwos could have screamed, he would have done so.

And then he was falling, his head was suddenly clearing, and he barely managed to slow his fall with his wings before he hit the ground hard.

Deac was next to him. In one piece. Alive. Simply unconscious with a newly forming large bruise on the flesh remaining of his head and circuits fizzing in his body.

Ten feet away, a very pale human stood. His eyes were bright red. His ears seemed to be pointed underneath his long black hair. He also didn't smell right for a human.

But that wasn't what interested Rwos the most about him. The thing that had Rwos' attention was the large, shimmering globe the young man was standing next to.

*His eyes focus on the strange looking creature in front of him, what a funny form to be in. The unconscious one next to him stirs some kind of memory in him, but no matter, he didn’t come here to toy with them. He focuses on the Time Matrix and it shimmers in his hands before shrinking down in size to the poin where it fits in his palm. He puts it in his pocket and then using the force he tosses them aside as if they were dolls and walks past them*

Wall...ow. Aargh.

*He sat up. Great. Obviously, that was the Darkstar, or at least in name. Reletha's apprentice. And obviously enormously strong with the 'Force'. And that must have been the Time Matrix!*

Perfect. Just perfect! Like we could take that on with our bloody powers intact!

*What was going on here? What kind of game were those numbskulls called "Craynoir" and "The Aeges" playing?

And hadn't Deac just got his head cut off?

Rwos looked at Deac's body, lying next to him, still unconscious. And very obviously in one piece.

Were they all immortal then?

Never mind that. He had to get to...what had that lizard called him...Ken'atra. He had to get the Time Matrix. Before history could be warped. Or anything else happen.

He looked up at his surroundings...*

((This will be a somewhat of a long post, with a description of Asgard. First I will explain how Odin and Vidar joined the group)).

While the two were walking, a group of unknown men ambush them. Fighting quickly ensued the suprise attack. It was only five versus the two Aesir, so they thought they would have fun with them. Disarming them, they procede to beat them to a pulp. In their fun they failed to notice a sixth man throwing a gas gernade. A thick cloud envelopes the warriors.

Odin:Who threw that gernade?

Vidar:I thought we disarm....

The two fell to the ground, asleep. They are carried away.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(now onto description of Asgard)

Asgard, is a temperate world. It has a moderate to large size oceans. The oceans devide the world into 5 continents. To the north are majecstic mountains. Asgard is a mixed world, filled with mountains, and flat grazelands. Forest dominate the land. To the exterme north and south of the planet are covered like Earth, cold, harsh tundra.

The capital of Asgard is Valhalla. Odin's palac is located there. It is the largest city and is awe inspiring. Cobboled stoned roads. Designed in a basic circle, with the palace in the center. Cities of Asgard, think of something like Naboo style roads.

There is regular transportation, to basically anywhere you need to go. Now at the moment in time a war has been raging for centuries between the Aesir and Vanir. Meaning many cities are war torn, and not at their peak condition. Military bases and civilian spaceports can be found at any city. A truce has been anounced, so there is no fighting at the moment. Peace meeting are about to be held in a couple of days.

Does this do to for a description? (if you need more I'll post more).
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Odin waking up. Groggle looks around. Sees nothing that should have been there. The mountains were gone, replaced by a city wall. The Aritcheture somehow very familar to him. (Odin and Vidar slept through everything, untill being awakened by Ken'atra's push.) Getting to his feet, Odin looked around, this was a different world, a very familar world. Finally seeing Rwos, against the wall.

Walking over to him: Rwos where are we, and what happened?

Meanwhile Vidar, had awakened against a tree. He had a terrible headache. After a moments search. Vidar finds the road, into the city. Staring him in the face a sign saying: Welcome to Vidi.

Vidar: Vidi, but that's on Asgard. This can't be, we were just on Muspelheim (the name the Aesir gave Renare). This can only mean that the time matrix was used, and we are on Asgard.

rushing to his father Vidar interrupts Odin's question just before Rwos can answer.

Vidar: Sorry father, but I know where we are. We're home, we have been teleported to Asgard. This doesn't bode very well with me. This wall encloses the city of Vidi, but I don't reconize it.

Odin: I guess so. I'm starting to remember this, however Asgard hasn't looked like this since the ancient war. We need to get to a news stand to find out what is going on. Vidar, do you have any money on you?

Checking his pockets, Vidar finds 100 credits on him.

Odin: Good, we can get to Valhalla with that. We can get help from my people.

Rwos, stay here, and watch over Deac, Vidar will get Flax. While I go into the city and get us some transportation.

08-02-2002, 02:02 AM
Rwos: There's no time for that. We have to find Ken'atra now. If we're immune to mortal injury, Deac and Flax can take care of themselves, even unconscious. We need to stop this being before he can do damage. And we need some sort of plan to do that...I seriously doubt we can take him by brute force.

----------

Above them, a mist moved away. The Darkstar had his own agenda. He needed a host; Ken'atra was at the top of the list, but unlikely to accept him. Then there was Cracken, or even Starr if he couldn't manage Cracken.

One way or another, he would get to the Time Matrix. Then, perhaps, it would be the greatest of ironies if he...say, got to Deac Starkiller before the Starkiller avatar could...and twisted him into what Syrnl could have become.

*Cracken awoke, with Starr near him... shaking off his groginess, he and his apprentice was suddenly startled by a nearby explosion. they dove for cover in a shelled out building. Surveying thier situation, they were surrounded by two armies. a war.... Cracken was able to make out some familiar Force readings near by... a dim spot and a two mildly stronger ones. He assumed Vidar, Odin, and Rwos. He thought, and motioned to his apprentice, and they used what powers of stealth they had and made thier way two them. If they were going to get out of this mess, they'd have to co-operate. a sickening thought, but one must do what one must do to survive.*

Reaching into the small pack, he pulls a paper cylender, white, with a small portioon of it a tanish brown. it appears to be filled with some dead leaves, packed rather tightly. He puts the brown end to his lips, and ignights his lightsaber. Vidar draws his weapon, but Starr Steps between the two. Cracken extinguishes his blade, and is now smoking.*

*points to Vidar* YOu know what this is? *Vidar shakes is head a negative* It's called a cigarette. *he takes a drag* Comes from some planet out on the Outer Rim. Some boondocks planet where they haven't even gotten past there 4th planet. You know what it's called Starr? *Starr thought for a second, but shook his head no* Niether do i. Supid planet too, always fighting with eachother and such. i think it's Terra or some name like that...

Vidar stares silently at the two. Keeping his hand on the hilt of his blade, he waits for his father's return.

Rwos and Odin, quickly reach the market center. Landing just outside, Odin gets off of Rwos.

Odin: Stay here, we normally don't like strangers, and I can move faster alone. I'll be back in under 5 minutes, with transportation. I will also know where we should go from here.


Odin sets off at a run, then when entering the market he assumes a brisk walk. Stopping at a local news terminal, Odin quickly confirms his initial thoughts. They were indeed here during the anceint war. Also the peace meetings were to be held in a couple of days. If anything happened to those talks it would be devastating. With that information, Odin heads across the market to the landspeeder dealer ship.

Odin: I need a fast, and large transport.

Dealer: I have just what you need, a type xr 101, chariot.

Odin: Yes that will do. I'll take it now.

Dealer: That will be 20,000 credits.

Odin: I can't pay.

Dealer: Then you (finally looking up from his desk, reconizes his lord), You're the Allfather, of course there is no charge, please take it.

Odin: Thank you, I will remember you kind deed.

Leaving with the sleek, hover car. It had room for everyone including Deac, and Flax. Stopping to pick up Rwos.

Odin: Hurry, we don't have much time, and we have a long ways to go. Get in so we can pick up the others. I'll explain in transit.

Ken'atra indeed has the Time Matrix. Either he got it from Renare, or he already had it. He jumped here with it, and dragged us along. He is...he is very strong. I do not know if we can beat him directly.

The peace delegations will be leaving in 4 days. If the delegation is destroyed then it would devestate our people, and the war might continue.

Greetings, Starr. I am the Darkstar. You have seen Lord Syrnl and the power he wealded? You see Starkiller's power? I offer you greater....power to surpass even Cracken. Power to achieve godhood.

Starr does not hear Deac's threat. His eyes widen apparently in response to it, but he has stopped hearing outside conversation.

Correct, yes. There is only one true god, but we are in some ways like him, but we have the requirements of faith. Without someone believing in us, we dissappear. But that is not important. Together we can become a being stronger than Craynor, or Aeges! As for Cracken, what have you got from your servitude? Any land to rule? Wealth? Glory? He doesn't need you, and you certainly don't need him. But with me, even his power will seem weak. Let me in, and I'll show you. I won't control your body, I'll just be in the back of your mind, watching, advising, giving power. Just let me in...

The transport finally arrives in the capital city of Valhalla. Manuevering around the buildings, Odin heads to his palace in the center of the city. Stopping in front of a gigantic structure, Odin and the group exit the transport.

Odin: THis is my home; the hall of Valhalla, Only Vidar and I shall enter. The rest of you are to stay here and not move.

Odin and vidar start climbing the steps. Stopping half way they turn around, Odin seemlingly speaking to no one...

Odin: Einherjar, guard them and make sure they do not move.

Without warning, twenty Einherjar appear, with weapons drawn, and move to encirle the startled Rwos, Deac, Cracken and Starr.

Einherjar: Welcome home Lord Odin. The Allfather is expecting you. We shall make sure that they don't leave the transport.

Odin: Very good.

Odin and Vidar enter the hall, and proceed to the thrown chambers to seek council of Wodan.
(To save confustion, Wodan is Odin's past self)

Odin:Greetings Lord Wodan.

Wodan: Greetings to you Lord Odin, and also to you future son.

Vidar: Father.

Wodan: Why do you keep your companions under Guard? Are they not honorable?

Odin: Two have almost earned the right to enter this hall, but not yet, the others are evil, and must be guarded.

Wodan: I understand. I have an idea of why you came, but would you care and tell me exactly why?

Odin: There is a person named Ken'atra. I need to know were to find him. This person seeks to destroy our people. I believe he will attack the peace delegation to keep this war from ending. We must stop him. Also he carries a device, it is powerful. Vidar, the others and I are here to take back that device, and in doing save the galaxy for now from a premature ragnorak.

Wodan: This is as I guessed. Come we shall access Huginn and Muginn and retireve the information you require.

Of course he doesn't need you. He tried to recruit Deac once, remember? He just wants a powerful lacky, and to him, you're the best he can get. But he refused me. He has more power to start, but if we bond, Starr, we will be far stronger. You will give HIM orders...

While accessing the data the two Lords talk about many thing including the current situation with the Vanir.

Wodan: Finally here you go. Ken'atra is heading for a spaceport, in the city of Bifrost. Huginn reports that he will most likely try and steal a frieghtor, since all military ships are docked in space. I believe he means to attack the Vanir.

Odin: I agree, we must warn them.

Wodan: I'll get Freya on the comm.

Hitting the appropiate buttons, Freya Queen of the Vanir appears. Odin's wife, and Wodan's future wife.

Freya: Hello, Wodan.

Wodan: Freya, I have most dire news concerning the peace meating.

Freya: Go on.

Wodan: There is an assassin, on Asgard, we believe he will try and assinate your peace delegation.

Freya: I don't believe this.

Odin: Believe it. I come from the future, to stop him, and restore time. Bring along Some warships to protect the delegation. If they encounter a ship that tries to attack capture it, do not destory the ship.

Freya: This I will do, we must have peace, other threats are growing. I must go now, to make arrangements.

Odin and Wodan: Goodbye.

Odin: I too must go and intercept Ken'atra. It has been good seeing you.

Wodan: I will see you on your way. I too must make arrangements.

The three exit the hall and head towards the group. Wodan Stays at the top of the stairs, and whishes Odin, and Vidar a succeful journey. Then he turns and enters his hall.

Returning to the Group.

Odin: Einherjar return to your post. Rwos watch your tongue. You speak of what you do not understand. I will not tolerate such a tone towards my poeple. And Deac, I know your role in Ragnarok. Why do you think I traveled to the Cantina simple to have some Corellian Ale? Both of you, have patience, in time you will come to understand.

Rwos: Odin, explain to me what I do not understand. What I understand is that your people would be mass murderers; they want to destroy the galaxy if you die.

And while you're at it, explain Deac's "role in Ragnorak".


((Rwos doesn't know anything about Ragnorak except that the avatars weren't supposed to be released again until that time.))

Deac

*Deac turns to Rwos*

I don't majorly feature here , but in the universal Ragnarok. The Aesir will only destroy this galaxy in their Ragnarok. I am talking of the end of time itself, when good and evil battle for one final time.

----------------------------------------------------------------

How pathetic...exist only to serve. I could dismember your master in a fraction of a second. He refused me, make sure you don't make the same mistake. Here, let me show you what is to come...

*The Darkstar projects a vision of Deac and Starr fighting*

Deac: I told you it would come for this. History is safe. Now I owe you THIS!

*Deac feints with one of his sabers, and smashes them both onto Starr's right arm, breaking it off. Starr retaliates with dark force lighting, frying Deac's circuits, but Deac is able to hurl one of his sabers, slicing Starr in two*

Is that what you want...it could be like this...

*Deac's body change's to Starr, with Deac lying in two neat pieces*

((Rwos, that is correct he doesn't know where he is going. But in Deaths last post she had Ken'atra moving off in a direction. This would be towards Bifrost, even if he doesn't know this. Wodan, knows the direction, because of Huginn and Muginn. In mythology they were ravens that reported everything to him. In this case they are a series of Satellites that watch everything on the planet. Wodan saw the direction that Ken'atra was going a said that was their best shot to get him. Of course Ken'atra can change direction any time he wants. I did this just so our characters can do something even if they go the wrong way.))

Odin: Still Deac you do not understand, and neither do you Rwos. There is only one Ragnarok. We Aesir have been trying to delay it. Have you not seen the coruption in the galaxy? That is the first sign that the end is approaching. This galaxy has murdered millions of inocents. What my people did was in an attempt to save my life. I am not supposed to die until the Final battle. We made plans for if I die before hand. Now I'll let Vidar Describe Ragnarok for everyone.

Vidar: Ragnarok means the Doom of the Gods. It is also called Gotterdammerung, which means the end of the cosmos. Conflicts and feuds will break out, even between families, and all morality will disappear. This is the beginning of the end.

The stars will vanish from the sky.

Worlds will shudder with earthquakes, and every bond and fetter will burst, freeing the terrible wolf Fenrir. The Navy of Naglfar, and with Hymir as their commander, will sail towards the battlefield. From Niflheim second navy will set sail, Loki will be their helmsman. A third army led by Surt, will leave Muspell in to join against the all who are good. Surt's army will ravage all the worlds that they pass by.

Meanwhile, Heimdall will sound his horn, calling the sons of Odin and the heroes to the battlefield. From all the corners of the universe people will head towards the huge plain of Vigrid, where the last battle will be fought. Odin will engage Fenrir in battle, Surt will seek out the swordless Freyr, who will quickly succumb. The one-handed Tyr's flagship will fight against Gam's monstrous ship and they will kill each other. Loki and Heimdall, age-old enemies, will meet for a final time, and neither will survive their encounter. Deac will protect the weakest warriors. He will be suceed in his efforts until he is surronded. He will fight valiently but will slowly succumb. Rwos will lend aid to Deac in his struggle. The fight between Odin and Fenrir will rage for a long time, but finally Fenrir will seize Odin's Ship and destory it. Odin's son Vidar will at once leap towards the wolf and kill him by ripping the Fenrir's ship apart.

Fire will be flung in every direction. The universe will burn, and friends and foes alike will perish.

Hope lies in the Aesir and those that aid them. If they are true, then evil shall fail. The universe will be reborn, and the innocent and virtuous shall also be reborn. The cycle will then begin again.

Odin: To this end I sought you and Rwos out.

My people have been preparing for this final battle for longer then you can comprehend. We have developed the resonance torpedoes to ensure that I survive until this battle. We knew that if my life was ever threatened, we couldn't use idle threats. However we never thought the galaxy would make us go through with it.

Vidar: We unleashed those torpedoes and even targeted our own world, because all hope of winning the final battle was destroyed. We blamed the rest of the galaxy for this and felt they should suffer. However it was decided that a few chosen Aesir would live and wait Ragnarok. In case we still could win, even though we doubted it.

((lol - why did you refer to me as Rwos? I wouldn't wanna be him :xp: ;)))

Rwos: You have an entirely too fatalistic outlook on this. The future is not yet written. Thus no prophecy is set in stone. You can only know where the time stream is flowing.

If you know what may happen, then you have the ability to change it. Dare I say you have the responsibility.

----------

No...that is not what I want...but...

Very well. If the only way I can prevent this fate is to accept your offer...then it is done. I accept.

Odin: There are certain things that are destined to happen. It might be possible to delay those events. Ragnarok is such an event it can't be stopped the final battle will occur. We have spent thousand of years trying to delay it, but it will happen.

Deac
08-15-2002, 08:56 AM
If what you say is true, then the end is close. However, I will not be fighting alone at Ragnarok, when I comes. Nor will I be the leader.

*Deac closes his eyes, and warriors of all races and ages appear in ghostly forms around him.*

We are the Starkiller.

Rwos: Very well. If so many prophecies coincide, then in my experience there is usually an element of truth to them. But I still want to know certain things - Who gave these prophecies? If we succeed in getting the Time Matrix, we could question it...and perhaps find out critical information that has passed us by.

----------

Starr could feel power flowing through him, in incredible intensity. The Darkstar hadn't been lying. Starr had never imagined anything like this.

He felt like his eyes were being opened. Suddenly a trillion more possibilites were open to him. He could do anything!

What of my master? Should we leave him here or bring him to help us?

Deac
08-16-2002, 09:04 AM
The answer to your question, Starr Darkstar, is this: Do you want Cracken as your servant? He has tasted power, he would only plot against you. Let us slip away and find the time matrix ourselves. We can alter the past more favourably for US.

*Deac addressess Odin*

*Cracken senses something about Starr.... something... odd.... something... pow... it hit him. Darkstar followed them through TIME ITSELF.... he kicked himself. he should have accepted. Now, his own apprentice was now the master.... He thought.. how do deal with him, if ANY way... no, not in his current state.... he'd lose, horribly. He'd just tag along with the Super Geeks.....*

Rwos stares at Cracken. "Geek" was a word from Earth...it meant something along the lines of cyberscientist...which made no sense in this case.

Maybe his translator had gotten a random glitch. He'd worry about it when he got back home...if he did...

...why, exactly, were Starr Hailfire's eyes black?

----------

My past is half a blank...I do not know h---

Cracken spoke. Starr instinctively listened...

So he wants to stick with them...he must have a plan for this that he did not tell me...I suppose he really doesn't need me at all.

Well after all, he's the one who told me that "when opportunity strikes, take it..."

Starr took out his lightsaber. He turned to Cracken, who looked oddly at him. They looked at each other for a moment. Then Cracken's face changed...he knew what Starr was about to do.

Starr: Rest assured that I'll come back for you.

Starr struck the canopy of the speeder with his lightsaber's blade. Then he leaped out of the vehicle, rolling on the ground. Using the Force to speed his movements, he ran.

Deac

Odin: Rwos, my people of course made the prophecies. We don't need to go back in time, they are still alive. When we reach Bifrost, we are going to the spaceport, and check which ships are there. Then we are going to watch the ones that have weapons. Ken'atra will go for one of those. Ken'atra won't jump again until his finished what he has come here for.

*Starr and Deac jump out*

Starr lowers his hand. "Ah yes, you're the cyborg one...you still have a chance at beating me... In that case... I simply won't waste my time dealing with you!"

Odin: It looks nice, but if you read the runes, it is a sword for cermony, Steel can't stand up against a lightsaber. If you would return the sword to it's compartment in the transport, Vidar will give you a proper sword.

Vidar: Sure gives flax a sword , the blade is made of a mineral that resits lightsabers. The runes in the fuller read: Lightsaber Eater. These blades are extermly light and durable. Since they don't glow they are better suited for stealth operations. This paticular one is a long sword, meausring in at 45 inches. Enjoy.

*the creature scowls at the Starkiller* My master Craynor's terms were clear. Two teams, one his, one yours. The deal was that they would have equal Force powers, and no member would be powerful enough to face Ken'atra alone. And no interference from either side.

Then you saw fit to possess, to "join with" Deac, and the Darkstar, who is one of you (and hence not my problem) "joined with" one of my master's team. Then you destroyed each other's hosts, something which I must admit I-

Vidar: If we can't get the time matrix then there would be no point in sending us at all. Besides he failed at Asgard. He didn't stop the peace process. He can't kill us, so we have the advantage. If necessary we will just have to wear him down untill we can take him.

Redwing
08-30-2002, 01:38 AM
Rwos: He could still damage history, perhaps beyond our ability to fix it. And he didn't fail at Asgard - he left before doing anything. The Darkstar had to have warned him and convinced him that killing Deac Starkiller would alter this. And since Deac is no longer under the protection we are, it could work!

Admiral
09-01-2002, 02:10 PM
Vidar: He didn't do anything on Asgard he left which means he failed. Whether he returns is another story, for now my people are at peace. Remember once we have the time matrix we can go back to the time before he found it. We stop him again before he get hold of the time matrix. Then he will no longer be able make the changes.

Look at it this way if I go back in time and kill myself, I would no longer exist in the future. Because of that I wouldn't be able to go back in time to kill myself, as such time would remain unchanged.

Odin: It doesn't matter, we need to stop Ken'atra, the sooner the better. When we stop him we will then posses the time matrix.

Now if you don't mind we can continue this debate another time. We are here to stop Ken'atra, and acquire the time matrix. Now if you please, either be quite or say something that will help us accomplish our goal and get back home.

Rwos: I know some things about this Time Matrix; I always considered it a fanciful myth, but obviously - anyway, the Time Matrix protects the user in the time stream. Ken'atra cannot kill himself using the Time Matrix. Even if he removes any possibility of his existence from this reality - he will still exist, and everything he has done with the Time Matrix will remain unchanged.

Because of...whatever that creature did to us...we are also under the Time Matrix' protection. Ken'atra cannot harm us but he can now erase Deac from existence and I am NOT going to allow that to happen!

((Death and I wrote this post via AIM instant message. The parts that she or I wrote are indicated...just disclaimer ;)

The flashback takes place just before the jump to Atredis - which it turns out Ken'atra went to because he heard the Starkiller mention it, and this battle was recorded in the Renare database. The Darkstar apparently just followed the Time Matrix' jump contrary to what Rwos thought))


Several Minutes Ago

Ken'atra

*Atredis...hmm...well it should be interesting. Oh but how glad he is he stopped to watch all this! Such a spectacle! Such a show of drama! If it weren't for the fact that they were there to stop him he might just find them too amusing to destroy.* Torture and kill me twice. Such high hopes. *he chuckles slightly* But no matter, there is work to be done. *he takes out the Time Matrix and concentrates on his next target. Once he's there he walks away*

Present

Rwos

*Rwos takes advantage of the Avatars' argument and scoops up the unconscious Deac. He leaps off the battlement and flies over the castle edge. Stormtroopers shoot at him, but he quickly clears the wall and escapes their range, putting a wall between him and the fight. He looks down to see where he is going...and recognizes the lone figure below him.

It is Ken'atra.*

Ken'atra

*His eyes wander up to see a flying creature. Oh, it's one of them! How interesting. He smiles and waves at him before sending a shockwave through the Force right at him*

Rwos

*Rwos stares at the figure in astonishment for about a millisecond. Then he is hit, hard, by some invisible force. He tumbles from the sky, dropping Deac. He barely manages to catch the child and shield him with his own body before he hits the ground, hard.*

Ken'atra

*Walks over to him and kneels next to him* Stay out of my way, you and your whole group. Or next time I will do more than make you tumble out of the sky. *Looks at the 10 year old child and runs his fingers down his cheek* To be young...to be innocent... *pulls his hand away and walks off*

Rwos

*Rwos groans and tries to move his body. He can't. Great...now he was stuck. He manages to call after Ken'atra*

Why...are you doing this?

Wait...he hasn't killed Deac. Isn't that the point of his being here?

Ken'atra

*He stops, but doesn't turn. His voice holds the slightest hint of sorrow* To regain what I have lost.

Rwos

...What? Why are you here? What have you lost?

Ken'atra

*Looks at him over his shoulder* Now that, my dear, is none of your business.

Rwos

Rwos: You heard what that lizard creature said, didn't you...you know we're going to kill you.

Ken'atra

I am not afraid of death. The eternal sleep even seem comforting at times. But I cannot die...not when there still is a chance to right the wrong that has been done to me.

Rwos

Right wrong!? Weren't you Reletha Darkstar's apprentice? Practically a Sith?

Ken'atra

That would be I.

Rwos

*Rwos tries to move again. His physical regeneration is kicking in. At least that still worked*

I know what will happen to you, Ken'atra. You're going to fail. The galaxy will be ten times worse than the one you came from...and all because of your interference. That's why we are here! To stop you from doing that.

If you think I'm lying...explain to yourself how we got here. We didn't touch the Time Matrix. Yet we followed you from Asgard to here, and you didn't know it, but we were on Renare with you, too.

Ken'atra

I care not for the rest of the universe. How dare you even think that you understand what my purpose is. You know nothing. I am not the villain here.

Rwos

Then stop this! There has to be a better way than just killing everyone...Ken'atra, is this because of the Holocaust? There is a better way. I was directly involved...I know how to stop it!

Ken'atra

How dare you?! *Spins around the Force trembles around him as his anger is felt* I have spent a long time searching for a so called better way! There is no better way! Everyone must die! *his eyes turns deadly calm and icy* Everyone will die

Rwos

You don't have to. If you do just one thing, save one person, the Holocaust won't happen. I give you my word. Let me help you, Ken'atra.

Ken'atra

*For a slight moment he looks like he might say all right, but then his eyes turn cold and he flips his hair in a 'I'm better than you' manner* I do not trust you. And I don't need help. *Turns and walks off*

Rwos

*calls after him* Ken'atra! You're making a mistake. *Rwos tries to get up, but he still hasn't healed. His back had probably broken. He could feel it healing; the bones in his back were shifting, but he was still incapacitated* What the hell do you think you're going to try to do here? *he yells after Ken'atra's receding form, frustrated* You're making a big mistake!

Dammit.

Terrakon: Darkstar...let us do battle here!

Ken'atra was only about 10 clicks away and closing. he'd vape his sorry ass, grab the time matrix, and win this silly little game. as Ken'atra came into view, he fired his lasers, blasting craters all around Ken'atra.*

Ken'atra

Hmm…this place is getting too hot. *he grabs onto the Time Matrix and thinks of his next target. If he messes things up enough then maybe the holocaust won't happen. Maybe…mother always told him to have faith. Oh mother, to see her once again would be…unspeakable. He can still remember it, the fresh air, the sun, the big fields of green grass. He can almost smell the scent of flowers…Wait! He CAN smell flowers! His eyes fly open and he looks around. This is all so familiar. This is…home* Oh no…


Rwos

Rwos: Attend to Deac. He...his father is dead. I'm fine, I think I can...

*Suddenly Rwos was sitting, alone, in a field of grass and wildflowers. About a hundred feet in front of him was a large, simple building that reminded him of a farmhouse. The sky was still reddish, but somehow a more pleasant hue, and the air no longer smelled of blaster fire and charred flesh.

Something growled behind him. Rwos turned to see a strange-looking animal staring at him with red, vicious eyes. It looked like a mix between a wild pig and a wolf. It bared its teeth and growled...

Time jump.*

Flax we're on Raynor, a moon of Agumar, my home planet.

That farm house belongs to my uncle, he was a scientist, he specialized in anti-matter. In our time line he's an old man now.

He pioneered the technique of directing antimatter as a focussed stream. The same technolagy that was used in the Crimson Star.

((OOS: No, Battledog, Ken'atra has accidentally traveled to his own home. So that wouldn't be Flax' uncle's farmhouse, just a similiar building))

Rwos: That's funny. *still sniffing the air* I can smell human scent, but not an adult male... I smell...something else. Wait...there's the scent Ken'atra had...except more sources...

Of course, maybe your uncle lived on the same moon, or the architecture is just really similar.))

Rwos: He's likely somewhere close. *he stands up and walks toward the farmhouse* Let's see what we can find out from the locals, if anything. *over his shoulder, to Flax* If this is your uncle's farmhouse, then maybe Ken'atra has chosen to come here with him gone. Or perhaps he has some connection with him that you didn't know of...

He startles and without thought turns himself into a dog like creature. They roam the wild here and he won't be noticed. He picks up the Time Matrix that fell to the floor with his teeth and hides.*
*A woman in a somewhat dirty dress runs up to the strange group* Ex-excuse me? I'm sorry, hello. My sons *she looks over her shoulder at two boys, they look to be about seven* ran inside the house telling me that men fell from the sky. Would you please tell me what you're doing here?

Odin whispering to rwos, harshly: I know that, and you think I would kill a boy? You said yourself that we might not be able to take him, so we need another way to get the time matrix. Ken'atra almost listened to you, and after that he brought us here to his home. Obviously either his mother, or brother mean something to him, we can use that. We use them to get the time matrix. Have his mother approach him, and have her talk to him, and ask him to hand over the time matrix, so the future can be set right.
