i just wanted to make sure. I know you have not got a story out of Groovy yet, but Groovy doesn't appear in Episode 2 but he will be back in Episode 3. The reason for this is because I have not been able to keep up with the other stories and I don't want to come in and post out of sequence. But if it is time for Episode 3 to start somebody needs to let me know so I can post the Intro. Please don't just let this thread die......I think these posts are fantastic. If you don't like it.......you know just go over and post in one of Lexx's dull hero lists or whatever.

Lord Maximus sat in the cold night meditating on his next move. "What are your orders sir?" One of the clones had approached Maximus. "At dawn we will enter the base, we must capture obi wan13 alive, our master has something special for him." Rising up the dark lord looked over the jedi's base. "As for dissectional he is mine."

to be continued at a later date when i can think of more stuff to post.

Thank goodness it's not over yet.

Yome walks in to his room and over to the cage and grabs one of the small animals and places it in a tube looking thing and stuffs it unger his armor. then he walks out and then down the coradoors. then the lights start to flicker like the powere is going out "obi-wan the powere genoraters are being over runned"

"dont do any thing about that we have a bigger problem to worry about" obi says though the com. "come up to the air control tower"

"on my way sir" Yom Says as he starts to fun tords the the conrol tower to see what is going on then bolts start to flash by him. so he daive in to the next door way to take cover from what was shooting at him. as he pokes his head back in the hallway he sees a small parole of clone troopers then her grabs his blasters and shots one in the head the another on in the torso pushing him back, then he shots 4 more shots at the remaing 2 toopers after the 4 troopers were dead yom breaks in to an all out run to the tower.

Yom enters the the tower controle area and obi was the first to speek "thats odd i could not secne u were comming Yom. but anywho welcome."

"thank u sir" yom says in return "so what was i summand for"

"well yom we are running low on fighter support and we cant spare any jedi so we need to bring all jedi fighter piolts in. and well that leaves alot of open spase for divine to attake up by air. we are bringing all piolts in and so i am hopping that will bring the fight to us. so i need u to boobie trap the landing pads and hanger bay so that we can find off what forces we can. so take some men and start on the hangaer bay u dont have much tim so move! move! move!"

Yom runs out to do his job.

I would write something but i really dont know where the Emperor is in the storyline right now! :( can someone help me out?

08-15-2002, 03:25 PM

Sorry to correct you Yom :) But In my story, Divine is back at the Sith academy awaiting the technical readouts of the Jedi academy, which are currently in the possession of Darth Slayne. Slayne is in transit to the Sith academy, so if you wish to continue on from there Divine, feel free. ;)

Divine Spirit
08-15-2002, 03:51 PM
ok then, ill think of something to happen then then :D

itll hopefully be done by tomorrow night :)

08-15-2002, 04:33 PM
ok guys you going to have to help me out here. whats going on

Reb Starblazer
08-15-2002, 06:17 PM
Well, it's really hard to explain what's going on, because I'm not sure if anyone really knows. I think that we should put a wrap on episode II soon. Look at how long this thread is, and how much stuff has happened. Episode I was only about 4 pages long, this one is 7, and rising. Perhaps someone should try to think of a way to wrap up this story...

08-15-2002, 07:19 PM
ok i haven't psoted fro a very long while and i am going to make a late return so i cna have a palce in ep 3, and this is actually in the past. so it's not now incase you tell me i'm late. Also i probably have no idea at all so you can correct me all you want

Agen_Terminator had not fought for a while and had become deeply disturbed since the bounty hunters and such. He had roamed the acdemy for a while and sitting on posts jsut looking at fields and thinking.

Though lately he had been dwelling deeper than msot and sensing out the darkside which msot coudl not. Agen put a tracker on the sith speeder bike, expecting Slayne to use it and possibly track it. He had waited many months for anything spectacular to happen thast would cos interest of him to go after it. But he had heard of slayne's escape with the plan's.
Agen climbed to one of the tallest posts and looked out to the desert he coudln't mistake the Stygian Wraiths black figure on the glimmering gold sand. Agen Quickly got the nearest ship with urgency to follow Slayne. The ship had problems starting, porbably why it wasn't being used. Agen took out his tracking device to view it, he was right, the damaged speeder bike had moved and was gaining speed again.

Once Agen had broke out of the planets atmosphere, it was very hard for him ot keep visible track of the Stygian Wraith because of its black colour. The tracker helped him as long ass he kept in distance and he could sense that it was fgoing to speed up anytime soon.

A few hours later he had still managed to keep rtack of slayne but Slayne had sensed his presence by now. Agen knew this but was also wary of the figures coming behind him. Carefully agen made way for them while keepting unnoticable and discreet.
They seemed to be the type of X-Wings and ships that the academy have. Termie realised that thye msut be after the plans aswell so he left it as is.

That's it just filling myself in. so later osmeone can paly me a part :)

Darth Slayne
08-15-2002, 07:31 PM
Thats pretty good Termie :thumbsup:

I'm going to go and compile what we have here so far and attempt to write a breif overview on events. Look for it some time tomorrow.

08-15-2002, 08:01 PM
... Um... where the he** is Camus!?!?!?

08-15-2002, 09:49 PM
well im going to explain my duel with shadow angel. (youll notice that i dont describe lightsaber duels in detail. USE YOU IMAGEINATION :D)

they both rushed at eachother with emotion in their hearts, one negitive and one positive. and they fought with a great strength that neather of them had know before. and they fought for what seemed like hours but it was only afew minuts. it was then that a feew maul clones tryed to help shadow angel but shadow angel killed them all before they even got 2 inches closer to dragon. "hes mine" angel said. they both were exausted beond belief after that and could barely lift their sabers. they charged at eachother once again and yelled as they ran then everything seemed to slow down and dragon stabed angel through the chest. angel stood dumbfounded for a second and then started to laugh. he pushed dragon backand then brought his own saber up and choped off dragons right arm then he pushed him far across the front grounds with the force. dragon fell down and almost yelled out loud but he wouldent give angel that pleasure. angel took his time walking over to dragon. "now you will die without avengeing you family...oh this is a sweet victory" dragon waited for the final strike but he heard "STOP" from behind angel. there was standing the dark lord himself devine spirit "i have use of his jedi..soon dragon you will call me master" dragon summed up his courage. "you sith are really stupid if you think that i would join the one thing which i despise and betray the frends that i love" "oh i never said that you would do it willingly" a bright red light shot from devines hand and engulfed dragon. through the light you could see a figure wrenching with pain and here a screem that would frighten the bravest of men. when the light went away dragon was lieing on the ground eyes closed. "rise darth rhall" dragons eyes opend and they wee nolonger the kind friendly blue eyes of white dragon, they were now blood red and as frightening as the scream that came from his mouth. he got up and looked at himself then he started to laugh it grew from a quiet chuckel to a mad insain laugh. darth rhall had been born.

nice huh though im still part of th jedi acadamy so dont get you hopes up.:D

Darth Talliusc
08-15-2002, 09:51 PM
divine i thought that you were with the ship that Reb blew up, obviously you escaped because it would take more then a blown up ssd to take you out =). so i guess you can pick up events back at the academy. perhaps you retreated to gather more forces while leaving maximus in command of a clone contingent used to harry the base until your return.

edit: that post by whitedragon wasnt there when i wrote this yet mine came after it.... disregard everything i said because i think im wrong.

Darth Slayne
08-16-2002, 03:23 PM
You're not wrong Talliusc. Divine IS at the Sith academy after escaping the SSD's destruction.

Whitedragon, you may want to edit that part you wrote about Divine. Maybe say that it was Divines image, rather than the actual person. Only a suggestion. ;)

Darth Slayne
08-16-2002, 03:35 PM
Well, here it is...so pay attention :)
Bear in mind that this is based upon my compilation of this episode, and that some events have been moved around in an attempt to make them tie in with one another more smoothly. Should you wish to view my compilation .txt file in its entirety, just PM me and or send me an E-mail.

Academy wars Episode two: A new Order. (brief overview to clear some confusion)

A new Jedi academy founded on Thedonias 1 year after events in Episode 1.

Obi wan13 and a group of jedi head for corascant (they don't know that Corascant is under the control of Divine)with important data and are attacked by assassins and bounty hunters sent by Malice and Talliusc. Battle occurs, and Darklighter (on Thedonias) receives a message that Obi wan and company have not reached the chancellor. White drogon and his apprentice head toward corascant.

Malice knows the assassins will fail, and he begins to feel a little guilty over his decision to defect. Malice then receives a transmission from the Emperor, and suspects that he knows the location of the Jedi academy.

White dragon reaches Corascant.

Following the guidance of the force, Darklighter heads to the moon of Oradian where an old friend awaits.

Battle continues on Corascant. White dragon meets up with Obi and crew.

Talliusc who is based on Corascant, captures Dissectional.

Darklighter meets up with AB_Leigion on Oradian, where he finds out about an overwhelming army of Maul clones that the Emperor has developed in secret. They battle one for good measure, and are helped by Stormtroop. They then board a shuttle and head back to the academy.

Obi and company free Dissectional, and meet up with the chancellor. The chancellor (under the sway of Divine) tries to trick the academy location out of them but fails. White dragon battles with Shadow angel.

The Emperor holds a meeting of the Sith to discuss an attack on Thedonias (sith now know the location thanks to Slayne's spying on Malice) Emperor reveals the existence of the 2,000,000 strong Maul clone army. Preperation for war begins. Malice feels that he should warn the Jedi of the coming attack. Knowing of Malice's intentions, Divine plots with Shadow angel (now back from Corascant) to have him followed. Shadow secretly sends Slayne to do the job.

Enter new and improved Dath Maximus! (now a Sith)

Yom forsakes his Jedi ways and reverts to being a bounty hunter. He reveals this to Darklighter (now back on Thedonias). They are joined by Kit fisto, also in mandalorian battle gear. They are sent to rescue White dragon who is trapped on Corascant.

Talliusc attacks a bunch of thugs on Corascant.

After finding out they were being tracked, Yom and crew battle Imperial ships.
Obi and crew are on their way back to Thedonias.

Yom and company reach Corascant. A battle ensues and they rescue White dragon. They then return to the Jedi academy.

Talliusc finds out that Malice is in danger and leaves Corascant in an attempt to warn him.

Malice arrives at Nar Shaddaa to reclaim an “item” from an old friend. Briefly he encounters a group of thugs harassing a Twi'lek girl, and rescues her from slavery. He then makes for Thedonias. Once there, Malice warns Obi wan of the coming attack. After failing to convince them to flee, Malice leaves Thedonias.

After returning to the academy, Yom and crew discover a suicide squad that were sent to attack the Jedi.

Darklighter has a slight personal dilemma, but has to quell his feelings at hearing of the suicide squad attacking.

Talliusc arrives to discover that the Emperors fleet has assembled in readiness for the invasion. His intention to warn Malice is detected by Divine, and he is forced to flee in search of Malice. He heads for Thedonias but Malice is no longer there. He trys to warn the Jedi, but winds up being taken prisoner.

Malice reaches Angmar, where he reclaims an ancient Sith ring of power, hiding it on his person. He is then ambushed by a group of dark Jedi, but manages to fight them off. However, he is too late to sense Slayne's presence, and winds up being captured.

Battle with the suicide squad continues on Thedonias.

The Emperors battle fleet arrives at Thedonias, and Malice is being held captive aboard the SSD FleshRender (housing 1,000,000 Maul clones). Malice escapes captivity and sabotages the ship. He then confronts the Emperor but is defeated. The ship begins to explode and the Sith Lords make good their escape. FleshRender plummets toward Thedonias, and Malice uses ring to destroy the ship outright, killing himself and the 1,000,000 maul clones.

All on Thedonias are stunned by Malice's sacrifice.

After making sure Divine reaches hyperspace safely, Slayne crash lands on Thedonias. He senses that Talliusc is being held prisoner, and attempts to resue him. But the jedi are somehow warned, and Slayne too winds up being taken prisoner.

Maximus leads a 600 strong group of Maul clones that have survived the SSD's destruction in preparation for an assault upon the academy.

As Maximus sends an advance group to attack the jedi, a personal dilemma almost sends Darklighter into the dark side of the force. Obi wan saves him from such a fate.

Talliusc joins forces with the Jedi.

Attack continues. White dragon and Shadow angel battle yet again. Whitedragon turns to the dark side.

Slayne escapes and steals technical redouts of the academy and its defences. He then battles with Talliusc in an attempt to try and bring the wayward Sith back to the dark side. Slayne fails and is forced to flee with the stolen data. He boards his ship and blasts off toward the Sith academy.

Unknown to Slayne, Agen_Terminator has planted a tracking device on his personal Sith speeder (now within his the Wraith's hold). Termie then follows Slayne into space.

Talliusc leaves Thedonias for location unknown.

Maximus plots a new attack at dawn, telling his troops that Obi wan is to be taken alive. He has a personal vendetta against Dessectional.


There you have it. But boy was that whole thing a monster to sort out! *wipes sweat from over-worked brow* I hope that clears some of the confusion guys. Trust me, this is as brief as I could make it.

well it dose make for a nice part but i guess ill ask dvine and see what he says

btw how do you like it

08-16-2002, 03:39 PM
you forgot how i turned to the darkside

Darth Slayne
08-16-2002, 03:41 PM
Yeah, speaking with Divine would be the best aproach. But your story still is pretty good though. It just seems, that every time you try to fight Shadow, someone else posts a story, making it a little confusing. Scroll up and have a look at my overview.

08-16-2002, 03:46 PM
Thanks slayne! :D that heavilly clears alot of things up! :)
So soon we'll be having an end of this ep. i s'pose?

Darth Talliusc
08-17-2002, 12:52 PM
excellent work slayne, thanks for sorting all that out (from all of us). im curious as to how close to the end of this episode we are, i may want to leave my story until the next one. if anybody could help me out with that id be happy. maybe we could wrap up the last lingering battle on Thedonias and have it end soon after?

08-20-2002, 07:26 PM

well there are a mill clones that is alot to deal with all in one shot like that but oh well

Darth Groovy
08-22-2002, 05:06 AM
ok I am going to go against my own word. I started this thread and I feel the need to finish it. Alot of people fell out of this one so I will pick up their slack. I will conlude this story with my post and begin episode 3 soon. The Academy wars will go on until there is nobody left to post, or Divine Spirit either apologizes to Obi or bites the big one.

P.S. I found a way to fit Groovy into all this and there will be a big climactic ending ala lucas style.

Stay tuned...........

Reb and Groovy were still configuring the ending...not sure how far they've got though:(

Reb and myself are working out the ending for this one, then episode 3 shall begin. Stay tuned!

10-14-2002, 03:19 PM
I reeealy think this should stay in the Swamp, if it doesn't then it won't be as popular as it was. Ruining it :(
So will episode 3 be back in the swamp? :)

10-14-2002, 07:10 PM
Well I think it will be good to keep these threads archived here, since no one will post anymore of their stories in them, and they are easier to keep track of...

I think Ep 3 should be in the Swamp tho:)

Darth Slayne
10-15-2002, 11:28 AM
A warm greeting to all the crew! :D (Jedi and Sith academy crew that is).

Well, I'm back after much moving house and confusion over net rights (I must share the net with two other people :( ).

It is indeed good to see that there still seems to be an interest in the official battle thread. Keep it alive please fellas!

Ah, its good to be back! :D :D :D

10-15-2002, 04:41 PM
SLAYNE! You have gotten my email! That is wonderful! Welcome back!


There have been a few "changes" from when you left.....heh heh.........*nervous tug on coller*

Darth Groovy
10-15-2002, 11:09 PM
No kidding! Thank the Force! Welcome Back Slayne, it's been far to long! And look here, The Academy Wars are full RPG now!!!!!!

Darth Slayne
10-17-2002, 11:44 AM
Full RPG! I like this even more. At least we don't have to worry so much about our threads falling behind (yet?).

Its good to see that some familiar faces (avatars) are still about. I was dreading coming back on only to find a whole host of strangers. Ah yes, much has changed indeed. But you'll get that from time to time ;)

10-18-2002, 11:44 AM
ive missed ya slane. WELCOM BACK!!!!

Darth Talliusc
10-19-2002, 09:13 PM
hmm, it took me long enough to realize that there was a new forum section for this kinda stuff. welcome back slayne! i think that the next episode should be posted in the swamp, increase its popularity and increase the number of responses it gets.

That's why it wound up on page 86 at the Swamp right? :rolleyes:

I'm keeping this as a comepletely RP thread, that way more people should participate and it will be more fun. This way they will be easier to go back and read. :)

Darth Talliusc
10-20-2002, 12:47 PM
alright, thats seems fair. but can we make a note in the swamp telling swampies that the wars are continued here.... if they ARE continued that is. im still confused on that subject. i was under the impression that ep3 would be soon, then i read that obi and divine had made amends in the RPG thread obi made here.

i dont really know whats goin on and you mr.groovy seem to be the man with answers. i wouldve PM'd this to you but if others who know something on the topic can answer my questions id like them to. ive been out of contact with all the other sith *in the story and in the real forums... did i say the real forums? bah* for some time now, i noticed taht the sith academy website link was removed from divines sig. does the academy live? please help me.

Darth Groovy
10-21-2002, 02:24 AM
To answer your questions, yes the academy wars are still under way as far as the rpg goes. Episode II does indeed have an ending but some gaps need to be filled in. I'm working closely with Reb Starblazer to finish that. Episode III will start shortley after that. The main problem is that we are all students and have such little time to spare any more, but we have not abandoned or forgotten the idea. I will post a thread at the Swamp, though I am not sure if it is kosher to do that, I will anyway just to clear up the confusion. For future reference, the Academy Wars are staying here for good.

Reb Starblazer
10-21-2002, 08:56 PM
Well the thing is Talliusc, just think of that ending that Obi posted as a possible ending for the Academy Wars. Just something to wrap it up so Obi could start that RP that takes place afterwords. Needless to say, what he posted there could easily be worked into the final post of Episode III though:D

But, fear not, the second Episode of the Academy Wars will have an ending. I'm trying to work on it when I can, but I'm struggling for time and ideas at the moment. I love what this RP did for the Academy, and it's bloody fun as well:D. It will be finished, you have my word. Hopefully soon...

Also Groovy, when you say "Completely RP", do you mean like every other thread in this forum, in that it's really small posts and you can only control your own character? I'm not sure if those same rules should apply to this, as well, that's just never been the way we've done it:D This story is just too, umm, "epic" for that;) We all know and trust each other in these threads, so I think that it should be ok to continue the same as usual. As long as it's not too crazy or anything though. Also, I would have PM'd you with this question, but I feel it's better that it be answered in this thread, where everyone can see it.

Darth Talliusc
10-21-2002, 11:15 PM
oh now youve done it Reb, you've given me goosebumps and made me all exited about the next war. BAH! hehe, well i guess ill just have to go script up some ideas and keep em to my hd until you guys are ready (thanks for keeping it alive btw).

according to the rules of this board you are allowed to use other ppls characters if you have their consent. which is pretty much how we did it in academy war i/ii. this forum is just getting started and the users are getting used to it. i have faith that it will be more lengthy posts *flashback to all the "WARNING EXTREMELY LONG POST ALERT" signs that you posted before* and not so much little two sentence pieces that we've been seeing thus far.

you said you were struggling for ideas at the moment, if you need a source for ideas just let me know. not all of them are good but ive got enough that i think you may like one or two.

and is that a new avatar? havent seen that one on you before.

edit: thanks for posting that msg in the swamp groovy, not sure if it will stay on page one long enough for ppl to really see it but thanks for the effort.

Darth Groovy
10-22-2002, 05:42 AM
Thank goodness somebody takes the time to read the rules here. I think it would be better to go back to complete RP as was originally intended by Obi-Wan 13 and some of us in episode one(read first or second post). Also in order to keep these over here we have to go buy the rules. So Reb, the answer to your question is yes. I'm not putting the Academy Wars at the Swamp because there are so many new members over there that we would have to spend the rest of our days explaining to every tom dick and jane what's going on here. This is for the originals who put this thing together now. Lets keep it here, keep it real, and keep it RP.

10-22-2002, 03:44 PM
im still waiting for the ending

Darth Groovy awoke to the sensation of pain coursing through his entire body, and a question about his location in his mind. The pain was easy to get rid of, for he was a Zabrak, and he used his species mental willpower and resistance to pain to remove it. However the question, that was a little more difficult to get rid of.

He stood up slowly and took in his surroundings. It was obvious he was in some form of prison, and it seemed Imperial in nature, but the question of exactly where still remained.
Groovy heard the sounds of heavy boots clicking on the floor, and turned to face his visitor.

“Ah, you’re awake. We were wondering how long it would take you to come around, after we stopped pumping you full of anesthetics. You’ve been out for quite some time.” Divine Spirit said.

“Well that’s nice, I’ve been meaning to catch up on my sleep.” Groovy said.

“Expect to get plenty more of it in the future as well. You won’t have much else to do inside that cell.” He continued.

“We’ll see about that. I highly doubt I’ll be here for much longer, you’ll either make me join you, or you’ll kill me because I won’t. Guess which ones the most likely to happen?”

“Oh you poor deluded clone. We have no plans of turning you, or killing you. You see, we need you, or more specifically, your genetic code. You’re an original clone, one of our first. You are an exact genetic duplicate of Darth Maul, not tampered with in any way. And that, is why you were deemed defective, and why you were discarded. Apparently the garbage freighter you were thrown into crashed on the planet housing the Academy. Though we foolishly discarded something that would have helped us, you have been returned to us in our time of need. It seems the Force is truly with us.”

Groovy stood there, silently, absorbing what had just been said to him. Finally, he said “Time of need? What is this ‘need’ you speak of? If the Force were with you, like you said, you wouldn’t need me now would you? So what do you have in mind, using my DNA to create an army of Maul clones or something as equally insane?”

Divine Spirit smiled evilly. “You’re not far off. The army has already been created; we just need you in order to bolster our ranks, after Darth Malice’s meddling. Oh, you didn’t know? Your friend is dead, killed in the very explosion he created to destroy us. Ironic, isn’t it? His own plan backfired, killing him, yet we all survived. Even now, you Jedi still foolishly believe the Force is with you, when it certainly appears to be favouring us.”

“The only sample you’ll get from me is a sample of my foot hitting your a…”

“Such language Darth Groovy. Your tenacity is useless; for we’ve already collected the sample we needed while you were unconscious. Another 500 thousand clones are already being grown. We’re only keeping you around in case we need another fresh sample, otherwise, you’d have already gone the way of your friend.” Said Divine Spirit as he turned and walked away, leaving Groovy alone to contemplate his future.


The Stygian Wraith blasted out of Hyperspace, and plotted a course for the fourth planet of the system. Darth Slayne allowed himself a small sigh, followed by a growl. While it was not his mission to bring Talliusc back, he didn’t want to be the one to inform the Emperor of this new turn of events. He glanced down at his wrist computer. The Emperor would however, be pleased with the new information Slayne had recovered. As Slayne approached the planet, he began to notice a strange shape near the planet. Once he had gotten even closer, he could see what it was. A space station about the size of a shipyard was in orbit around the planet, which he thought was strange for it had not been there when he left. That was when a voice came over Slayne’s Comm system.

“Lord Slayne, please continue on your present course. When you are in range we will lock on with a tractor beam and bring you into a hanger where The Emperor will meet you. Please do not fight the tractor beam once it is engaged. Do you copy my Lord?”

“This is Darth Slayne. Yes, I copy.” Moment’s later, the ship shuddered as the tractor beam locked onto it. Through the Hyperspace jump Slayne had stayed at the controls. Something felt wrong, the Force itself was practically screaming at him, but he could not pinpoint exactly what the problem was. But now Slayne released the controls, and for the first time in days, sat back and relaxed as the Wraith was guided into the hanger.

The door to the hangar opened as Divine Spirit strode in. There were two lines of Clonetroopers all standing at attention, awaiting their Emperor’s arrival, as Slayne exited the Stygian Wraith, and bowed before his master.

“Rise Darth Slayne. Why is it that have you returned here, when the battle continues?”

“I have returned with news my master.” Slayne said as he got to his feet. “I have recovered the schematics of the Jedi Academy. We can use these to search for potential exploits in their defenses.”

“Well done Darth Slayne, you shall be rewarded for your subterfuge. But I sense something else, a great deal of anxiousness in you. What is it my young apprentice?”

Slayne stood quietly for a moment, trying to think of a way to answer his Emperor. “ Darth Talliusc has… misplaced his loyalties. He seems to have sided with the Jedi. He did say however, that he would return when he has finished what he has begun, although I am uncertain what he meant by that.”

“It appears Starblazer’s treachery has rubbed off upon Lord Talliusc. Pity, that he will not be able to share in our moment of triumph, when the Jedi are crushed. Perhaps, once he realizes that there is no hope for them, he shall return to my side, but for now, I am content to let him do as he wishes. It is of no concern to me, for our newest ally, Darth Rhall, shall take his place. However, you and the other Lords shall retrieve Lord Talliusc if possible, but do not hesitate to destroy him should it become necessary”

A voice came over Divine Spirit’s Comm link, “My Emperor, we have picked up a flight of starships closing on our location…”


“ I told you not to trust him,” said Yom, leaning against Obi-Wan’s doorway.

“And I didn’t. However, I did respect Talliusc’s abilities and willingness to help our cause, but I did not trust him, there is a difference. Trust is something that can only be earned with time and understanding, but Talliusc was unable to stay long enough for that to occur.” Obi-Wan replied.

“I’ve set up traps like you told me to, but what do we do now? Just wait?”

“Yes, now we wait. And enjoy this quiet while it lasts.” Obi-wan replied, as he leaned back into his chair. And as soon as he had, the building rocked with an explosion. Obi-Wan’s chair fell backwards to the ground as he jumped out of it. “What’s going on?” Obi-Wan shouted into his Comm-link.

“Some form of explosive was detonated on the eastern wall. It’s caused a massive hole, and the clones are entering through it!” Yoda_623 answered back.

Obi-Wan put the Comm-link back onto his belt, and nodded to Yom. Obi-Wan used the Force to pull his Lightsabre to him from his desk, and they both ran out the door.

Dath Maximus stood outside the gaping hole in the Academy’s wall, watching with an evil grin as hundreds of Maul clones streamed in through it. Soon, the Academy would be overrun, and he would have his revenge upon those who had abandoned him to this fate.
He followed behind the clones, and walked through the opening. “Dissectional!” He yelled, calling the name of his padawan. “Come out and face me!” In the distance, a bright orange Lightsabre ignited and glowed.

“Dissectional is not here at the moment, but I am. I hope you’re not too disappointed.” Darklighter said, the glow of his Lightsabre illuminating his face.

“You will serve the purpose well enough. I will kill you all eventually, and you’ll make just as good a first victim.” Dath said, igniting his twin Blue Lightsabres as he jumped at Darklighter, who blocked Dath’s assault. Dath fiercely attacked, while Darklighter stayed defensive. Darklighter ducked under one of Dath’s swings, and then back flipped away from him, shutting his Lightsabre off in mid-air.

“I do not wish for this battle to cost either of us our lives my friend, please, don’t make it come to that. Why is it that you’ve you turned against us? What could possibly have hardened your heart so much, to make you want to kill us all?”

Dath jumped at Darklighter, and he re-ignited his Lightsabre. The two combatants locked Lightsabres, and struggled, each one pushing the other. “You left me to die on Thedonias! You just packed up, and took off, without even taking the time to see who you left behind. But Divine Spirit, he took me in; he saved me, when you had abandoned me. He’s made me strong, more powerful than you ever could.” Dath said as he pushed with all his might, knocking Darklighter to the ground. He then used the Force to rip Darklighter’s Lightsabre from his hand, and sliced it neatly in two as it flew in the air towards him.

“The Emperor has shown me, that the Force is not a tool to protect the weak, but rather, a weapon used to rule them. You Jedi, you’re weak. And we will crush you, one by one, and then, the galaxy will be ours for the taking.” Maximus said, raising one of his Lightsabres above his head for the killing blow. A blaster shot rang out, and a blaster bolt his Maximus in the right shoulder, knocking him back slightly. Then he was hit again and again and again, being driven back more and more, only his heavy armour protecting him, but that could not hold out forever. Darklighter looked up to see Yom standing on a piece of the fallen wall, a blaster pistol blazing in each one of his hands.

“Maybe Maximus… but not today!” Yom yelled. Maximus began blocking the shots with his two Lightsabres, sending them back at Yom. Obi-wan jumped up beside Yom, igniting his Lightsabre, blocking the bolts and sending them harmlessly into a nearby wall. From out of the shadows a Lightsabre ignited, and Tyrion walked up and stood beside Darklighter, and helped him to his feet. Then another Lightsabre ignited, and Agen_Terminator walked up and stood beside Darklighter as well.

“You may defeat us one by one Maximus, but you cannot defeat us all. The strength of the Jedi Order lies not in the individual, but in the willingness of the whole to help and protect it’s many parts. We will press on… we will persevere… and we will survive” Obi-Wan said to his former comrade. “And you can tell that, to your master. The Jedi will no longer hide from the shadow, but rather, we will be the light that drives it away. The only thing that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good to do nothing, and I can see that now. The time has finally come, for good to make its stand.”

In the background, a loud explosion was heard. “Do you hear that Dath?” Yom said. “That’s the sound that a couple hundred Maul clones walking into a trap make. Your army is shrinking with every passing moment, and so is your advantage. Now, none of us here want to kill you, despite the fact that you want to slaughter every one of us. I suggest, you leave, while you’re still able to walk, because my trigger fingers are getting mighty itchy…”

Dath Maximus looked at the Jedi surrounding him, and extinguished his blades. He turned, and started walking away, but then stopped and turned to face them again. “This is far from over…” He said, and then continued on his way.

“Yes… it’s only just begun.” Obi-Wan said, extinguishing his Lightsabre and breathing a sigh of relief.


The small group of ships exited Hyperspace, and scanned their surrounding area immediately. The tracking signal they were following was still detectable, and they plotted a course for it.

“What do you guys make of all this?” Kordkelly asked his companions.

“I don’t know what to make of it, but I do know that whatever’s going on, I don’t like it.” Replied Greedo626. “We don’t even know where we are yet.”

“But we will men, soon. Darth Knight is working on that now. In the meantime, the tracking signal is now orbiting the fourth planet, where I’m picking up life and technology. Lets go check it out.” Dissectional said, as he and Death Squadron took of in formation towards the planet.

“An orbital dockyard?” Said Greedo626, as they got closer. “Strange, there are no starships around here though, except whatever we were following. There’s no need for a dockyard way out here in the middle of nowhere. Wait a minute, is anyone else picking up the same thing I’m picking up! There’s a whole load of TIE fighters and Interceptors inside that dockyard. That’s no ordinary dockyard; it’s an Imperial outpost!

“Alright men, lock S-foils in attack position. We’re going in!” Darth Knight said over the Comm. The s-foils opened, giving the X-wings the shape they were named for, and the ships formed up.

“Get ready boys, this is it.” Said Dissectional as he fired the first volley of laser fire at the station. Then, moments after, every other member of Death squadron began firing on the station as well. But they did not go unhindered for long. Within minutes, TIE fighters and interceptors came screaming out of the space station, and engaged Death Squadron. The battle had begun.


“My Emperor, we have picked up a flight of starships closing on our location. They appear to be X-wings. I do not know how they found us.”

Divine Spirit looked from Darth Slayne, to the Comm link in his hands, and then back to Darth Slayne again.

“I did not bring them here!” Slayne said, “And they could not have followed me. If they had put a tracer on the Wraith, it would have detected it. All of the systems were functioning normally.”

Divine Spirit entered the Wraith, and stretched out using the Force. He made his way to the Stygian Wraith’s hold, and pulled the tracking device from Slayne’s speeder. He then turned to Slayne, who had followed him in and was now standing in the doorway.

“Your vessel did not detect this because it was not on it, but rather, in it. I suggest you upgrade your scanning capabilities Lord Slayne.” Divine said as he handed the tracking device to Slayne and walked out of the Wraith.

“Believe me master, I fully intend to.” Darth Slayne answered. He closed his palm, squeezing tighter and tighter, until the tracking device was crushed in his hand. “Perhaps these Jedi are more resourceful than I gave them credit for…” Slayne then left the ship as well, and heard the Dark Emperor talking into his Comm link.

“Yes, that’s right. Recall as much of the fleet as possible, and do it as quickly as you can. I don’t care about the battle at Thedonias, right now I’m more concerned with the battle that’s about to take place here! Do it commander, for I don’t tolerate failure…” and with that, Divine Spirit shut his communicator off and threw it across the hangar. “Come Lord Slayne, we must prepare. We must defend this station at all costs.”

“Why is that master? We have plenty of time to leave here if need be, we’re in little danger. What is it that’s so important about this station?” Slayne asked his master.

“Due to some unforeseen volcanic activity at the former site, we had to move our cloning operation. At the time, it was believed that the safest place would be here, in orbit around the Imperial Palace, but now, the Imperial fleet is scattered around the galaxy, with most of it surrounding Thedonias. We have minimal defenses here Lord Slayne, as it was not believed they would be necessary. Let us hope that we can hold them off until re-enforcements arrive..." Divine Spirit answered, and then ran out of the hangar, followed closely by Darth Slayne.


There, I've decided to put the first half of the ending up, in order to tide you all over. Yes, you read that right, the first half. It's extremely long, which is why it seems like a good idea to split it up into two posts, for the faint of heart and easily bored:D The rest should be up shortly, hopefully within the next few days. Enjoy!

Er yes Dragon, I remember that you turned to the Dark Side, and I've even included it in the ending, but it's in the second part. BTW though, I'm going with the storyline that Divine is at the Sith Academy, and that it was Divine's image that turned you, not actually his self, as Slayne suggested. But rest assured Dragon, you aren't forgotten. In fact, we've done our best to make sure that no one was left out in this story.

Also Talliusc, I haven't been doing the long post alerts in the last little while, because, well there's no need to warn anyone. They know my posts are gonna be long. Actually, if you look back, you'll see the trend in my last posts was to give them titles, "Facing Destiny", "Sacrifice", "Turn of the Tide". So, probably won't be anymore long post alerts.

sorry reb i kinda over reacted there:( but i thank you for not forgetting me

Nice work Reb! ;)

I feel that I must apologize to those of you who may have tried to contact me in the last few weeks (especially Reb). I have only just recently recovered from a major pc screw-up. I'm back now though......*Knocks on wood* :dozey:

BTW: Reb, sorry to correct you *flinch!* but the name of Darth Slayne's ship is Stygian "Wraith" and not "Wrath". Loosly translated it means "black spirit". The name you wrote down would mean "black anger" or somthing to that effect. Can you please correct.........NO PREASURE......honest! :D

Darth Groovy once again awoke to the sound of boots clicking on the floor, but this time, it sounded as if there were two sets. He got up from the small cot, which was all they gave him to sleep on, and stared out through the force field which blocked his escape. But this was even more surprising than when he awoke to find Divine Spirit outside the force field.

Standing in front of Groovy, was the last person he ever expected to see, the last person anyone would expect to see. Darth Malice made a signal with his hand, and the force field shut down. Darth Talliusc came into Groovy’s field of vision, and stood next to Malice.

“ We’re getting you out of here, follow us.” Malice said, as he and Talliusc turned and began walking. Groovy, not quite knowing what else to do, followed them out of the room.

The three walked through the halls of the station, ducking into the shadows and hiding when patrols of Clonetroopers passed. Finally, they reached their destination. They entered the room, and Talliusc locked the door behind them. In front of them, were the power generators for the station they were on.

“First off, two questions that really need to be answered: how did you guys know I was here? And why are you two rescuing me? Oh, so I lied… three questions that need to be answered. Reb, aren’t you supposed to be, you know… dead?”

“First, we saw them bringing you in, second, because we want to help you and because we also need your help, and third, I wouldn’t know. I’m not Reb.” Malice answered, as his face began to distort, and so did Talliusc’s. In a matter of moments, the two no longer looked like Malice and Talliusc, but rather, like two large reptilian humanoids.

“My name is Maareesh Teskeen, and this is my mate Sennell Latane. We’ve come to you because we have a proposition that will benefit us both…”


“This is Death 2, I’ve got an Interceptor on my six, I can’t shake him.” Dissectional said over the Comm.

“Roger that Death 2, I’m on it.” Said Darth Knight, as he moved in behind the Interceptor, and blasted it to atoms. “We’ve got to concentrate more firepower on that station, take it out as quick as possible, then get the hell out of here.”

“Agreed on that. Kordkelly, Greedo626, you two focus on the station. We’ll cover you and take care of these fighters.” Exterminator234 said.

Then, out of nowhere, a TIE advanced, and a black ship came sailing through, lasers blasting.

“This is Divine Spirit. Form up, and follow me. We’ll destroy these Jedi once and for all.” The group of fighters formed a V, with the Emperor leading it. They were closing fast on Greedo, who was making his attack run. They were almost close enough to get a target lock, when Divine’s TIE advanced was hit from behind, causing him to veer off course.

“Gotcha! This is Darth Groovy: boys, you’re doing a great job. But right now, I suggest you all get your nav-computers online, because you’re going to need them real soon. That station is going to blow any second now, from an overloaded reactor courtesy of yours truly.” Groovy’s ship, an escort shuttle, flew past the squad and headed for the jump co-ordinates. The other members of Death squadron quickly followed him, with Darth Slayne and his flight right behind them.

“Arm all proton torpedoes, and lock onto anything you can. Don’t let them escape!” Slayne yelled into the Comm. His target sight waved over a craft, so close to getting a lock, and then finally, he had one. He launched the torpedo, watched it zooming towards its target… and then, the X-wing jumped to Hyperspace, and the torpedo continued aimlessly along its path. Slayne cursed under his breath, and turned back towards the station, just in time to see it explode into nothing. That was when Divine Spirit’s voice came over the Comm.

“Darth Slayne… you will follow them back to Thedonias, and you will retrieve Darth Groovy. You will then return here with him, and I want him alive… do not fail me this time Lord Slayne…”


The group of ships exited Hyperspace after some time, and headed towards the Thedonias. Upon closer inspection, they came to realize that the number of Imperial ships in the sector had decreased significantly.

“What happened? A fleet of Capitol ships doesn’t just pack up and leave for no reason…” s0ulblihtr said.

“I think we scared them off.” Greedo626 said jokingly.

“Actually, I think we did in a way. Everyone else notice the lack of Capitol ships back there? I’m willing to bet that they got called back to protect that station, though they didn’t exactly arrive in the nick of time.” Darth Knight said over the Comm.

“There’s never been a better time for an offensive against them. Over half their fleet is gone… we may actually have a chance here guys.” Groovy said. “But for now, let’s head down to the Academy. I think I have something that Obi-Wan would like to hear…”

The shuttle Groovy was piloting touched down on the landing pad, with Obi-Wan and Darklighter there to meet him. Groovy exited the shuttle, followed by two cloaked figures. He signaled for Obi-wan and Darklighter to follow him, and he and the four others made their way to Obi-Wan’s office. Once inside, the cloaked figures removed their cloaks, and Obi-Wan and Darklighter did their best to hide their surprise.

“Clawdites?” Obi-Wan said. “How in the blazes did you come across each other?”

“We’ve been inside your academy, and the other one, for months now. We originally planned to just let you destroy each other, but we’ve come to the decision that perhaps it’s best to side with you. You seem honorable and just, whereas the others would probably kill us, or force us to serve with them, if they knew we existed.” Said Maareesh.

“Who are this ‘we’ that you’re talking about?” Darklighter asked.

“We are a clan of Clawdites that inhabit this planet. Our ship crashed here, long ago. Originally, we planned to set up a homing beacon, and wait for rescue, but we grew to like it here. You see, everywhere in the galaxy we’re hated and persecuted for our ability to change shape, people just don’t trust us. Here, we can be ourselves, and be left alone, and in peace. Which is one of the reasons we want to help you. Darth Groovy has told us that you once lived on another planet, but your home was stolen from you. We want to help you get it back. The only thing we ask in return is for you to leave here, and keep our existence here a secret, that’s all.” Maareesh replied.

Obi-Wan stood for a few moments, lost in thought. He then extended his hand to Maareesh, who then took it in his claw, and shook it. “I accept your offer. Welcome friends, you’ve made the right decision.”

The members of the academy gathered in the courtyard, where the hole from the attack the previous night was. Obi-Wan and the other leading members of the academy stood in front of the opening, and prepared to speak to their students and troops.

“The time has come for us to stop running from our enemies. The time has come for us to make a stand, to fight back, not just for us, but also for everyone in this galaxy. Should we fail, Divine Spirit will go on unimpeded, conquering everything in his path. We cannot, and will not allow that to happen.” Obi-wan said to the crowd before him.

“This academy will not fall as easily as our last. We’re prepared this time, whereas before, we were caught by surprise. But I for one am not content to sit here, and hide, while Divine conquers the galaxy. We can stay here, with the Sith in orbit while we cower behind our defenses, though nothing will drive them away. We can hold them off, we can beat them, forever and ever… or we can be heroes, just for one day!” Groovy exclaimed, holding his Lightsabre hilt above his head. A great cheer went up amongst the crowd, and Lightsabre upon Lightsabre was raised above the bearers’ head and ignited, creating a sea of colour.


Every vehicle fit for combat had been launched from Thedonias, from the X-Wings to the old Z-95 headhunters to craft that no one ever thought would fly again. They knew that not all of them would return from this mission, but that was a chance they were willing to take. The fleet of nearly 100 snub fighters sat floating in space, amassed and waiting. Waiting for their orders. Obi-wan sat silently in his Jedi Starfighter, the only one in the large group of ships. This would not be an easy order to give, or an easy battle to fight, but both were necessary.

“All Academy members, the time is now. All X and B wings lock your S-Foils in attack position, then we move out. You all know your tasks, and may the Force be with you, all of you.” Obi-Wan said, and then the armada began to move forward towards the Imperial fleet. Once they had come into range of each other, the battle began immediately, no one knew who fired the first shot, but then again, no one really cared. Both sides were so engrossed in the battle, that no one noticed when a jet-black ship exited hyperspace on the edge of the system…

“I’ve got two TIE’s on my six, see if you can take them out.” Obi-wan13 said over the comm.

“Roger that Obi-Wan. I’m on it.” Groovy answered, and then flew off in Obi’s direction. He lined up his sights on one TIE fighter, and blasted it out of space. He then turned his attention to the other one, and after lining up his shot, blasted the second TIE into atoms.

“Thanks Groovy.” Replied Obi-wan13, as he Groovy came up along side of him. Then, Groovy’s shuttle shuddered, and moments later, an explosion caused Obi-Wan’s Starfighter to veer off, as they were hit by torpedoes fired by a nearby Star Destroyer. Obi-Wan’s Starfighter drifted slowly towards the massive capitol ship within a minute, it within the hangar of the Star Destroyer, pulled in by the ship’s tractor beam.

At the same time, Groovy had regained control of his ship, and turned it around. He watched in horror as Obi-wan was pulled into the enormous ship. “Obi-wan has been captured, we’ve got to do something!” Groovy yelled into his comm.

“I’m sorry Groovy, I can’t spare anyone. There’s just too much going on right now. But they’ve only captured him, not killed him. If they wanted him dead, they could have easily done it then and there. Groovy, if we can win this battle now, then we can save Obi-Wan later. You know very well that’d he say the same thing… this what Obi-Wan would tell us… no, order us to do.” Dissectional’s voice said over the comm.

“To hell with orders… I’m saving my friend!”

“Groovy, it’s too dangerous! My command of Death Squadron means I’m responsible for all of you. I can’t sit by and watch as you go off somewhere and possibly get yourself killed. However… if you happened to sneak away while I wasn’t looking, no one would be the wiser… I have no idea as to your current location or destination Groovy. But as I don’t know where you are, I can’t send you any help should you need it. Do you understand what I’m telling you Groovy?”

“Roger that Dissectional.” Said Groovy as he headed towards the Star Destroyer. His ship shook violently, and the controls were unresponsive. The shuttle was now under the control of the Star Destroyers tractor beam. Groovy sat back in his chair, for there was nothing to do now but wait.

Clonetroopers surrounded the Delta class shuttle that had just been brought into the hangar. One of them cautiously reached for the manual release for the shuttle exit, and the door gradually lowered itself down to the ground, creating a ramp. Three Clonetroopers slowly entered the shuttle, weapons drawn. But it was pitch black inside the shuttle, as all the lights were turned off. The Clonetroopers walked farther into the ship, looking blindly into the dark, when a snap hiss was heard, and a red beam of light grew from the darkness. They could see a silhouette from the light, but couldn’t make out exactly what it was. Then, another pure red beam of light grew in the opposite direction. And that was the last thing the Clonetroopers ever saw…

The doors to the hangar slid open as Groovy exited, leaving bodies of the Clonetroopers strewn around the room. He had checked a console inside, and had discovered the location of the prison level on. He quietly made his way down the halls, hiding in the shadows whenever someone passed. He could handle a few Clonetroopers, but an entire ship was very much beyond him. As an officer walked by, he stepped out of the shadows and made his way to the door. Once through here, he would only have to go down another 2 corridors, and he would reach his destination. The door raised into the ceiling to reveal Darth Slayne, standing there with his arms folded across his chest. “I’ve been expecting you…”

Dissectional and the other members of the Academy were fighting for their lives high above Thedonias. They were only in small snub fighters, taking on an army of TIE fighters, and a number of Star Destroyers. This was definitely not a well-matched battle.

“Darth Knight this is Dissectional. Come up on my left flank, and follow me on my attack run. Let’s see if we can take out a few of those turbo-lasers. They can’t kill us if they can’t shoot at us.

“Roger that. I’m getting into formation.” Replied Darth Knight as he flew into position to the left of Dissectional. The two flew towards a Star Destroyer, dodging laser fire, and firing off shots of their own once they got in range. The Turbo-laser turret exploded in a ball of flame under the barrage of shots from both pilots.

“One down, only 259 to go…” Said Darth Knight sarcastically. Suddenly, hundreds of small explosions began happening on the surface of the Star Destroyer, as the pilots looked on in wonder

“Well would you look at that.” Said Dissectional. His sensors beeped, relaying new information to him. “Picking up new craft… New Republic ships! Capital ones too! There are over 30!” Dissectional almost yelled into the Comm unit.

A new voice came over the Comm., “This is Commander Dellan of the New Republic navy. You called for reinforcements?” Darth Knight could swear the man had a huge grin on his face, even though he couldn’t see him.

“Yea, about time you boys showed up. The bureaucrats of the Republic finally decided to help huh? It only took a year and a couple hundred lost systems for them to come to their senses.” Dissectional said.

“Well, they finally realized that only by co-operating with you we could defeat the New Empire. You can’t do it alone, but neither can we. That’s why they’ve finally given you their support.”


Onboard Shadow Angel’s Star Destroyer, he and WhiteDragon stood staring out the forward window, watching the battle around them. Shadow Angel was not quite comfortable standing next to the man who had murdered his father, the man who he had wanted to kill barely hours before. But perhaps this would be an even a sweeter form of revenge than simply killing him. Making him serve everything that he despised, and following the orders of his hated nemesis. He plan to kill WhiteDragon eventually, when his usefulness had worn off, but he would follow his master’s orders, and work with him, for now... Shadow Angel had much more important things worry about at the moment. Thirty-four New Republic cruisers had now joined the fight. A ranking Imperial Officer walked up to Shadow Angel.

“My lord, we must leave. There is no possible way we can win. A tactical retreat seems in order.”

“Retreat? How dare you even suggest it? We will stay to the end, and die fighting if we must.”

A young Lieutenant spoke up, “Sir, we have an incoming transmission. It’s from the Emperor himself!”

The Holo-emitter showed an image of Divine Spirit, and it began to speak. “My friend, you and the rest of the fleet will return to the Sith Academy at once. You can do no more good there. It would be foolish for you to stay, for you are no good to me dead. Let the Jedi have their small victory, and enjoy it while it lasts. They may win this battle, but the war shall be ours.”

Shadow Angel bowed, and turned to the Officer, “Order… Order a full retreat.” He spoke the words through clenched teeth.


Groovy parried another attack from Darth Slayne, and shifted his weight, now going on the offensive. The Lightsabre battle continued, the pace never faltering, both combatants intent on besting the other. Groovy and Slayne fought, as the Star Destroyer rocked around them. Groovy lost his footing, and fell to the floor. Slayne stood over Groovy, holding his Lightsabre inches from Groovy’s face.

“You are defeated. If I didn’t have strict orders to keep you alive, you would be dead right now. You will release your weapon, and will co-operate with me. I may not be allowed to kill you, but that doesn’t mean I can’t maim you a little.”

Groovy left go of his Lightsabre, stood up and rested his hands on the back of his head. He knew that he had to co-operate, there was no choice in the matter now. That was when a voice came over the Comm, “ All crew, prepare for Hyperspace. We are returning to the Academy”

The ship rocked again, and this time it was Slayne who fell. Groovy used the Force to pull his Lightsabre to him, and ignited it, raising it above his head, preparing for the final blow, when the ship shuddered yet again, and Groovy lost his balance joining Slayne on the floor. Groovy realized that he could do more good here, for if he stayed, then he would once again be a prisoner at the Sith Academy. He regrettably could not save Obi-wan, but he knew he had to save himself. It was better for at least one of them to escape. As much as Groovy hated to do so, he stood up, and ran out of the room, making his way back to the Shuttle bay. As he rounded a corner a group of Clonetroopers and officers were waiting for him, blocking his way there. Groovy ignited his Lightsabre, and charged towards them, deflecting their blaster fire. He used the Force to push them to the ground and jumped over them, for he did not have time to fool around with them now. Finally reaching the shuttle bay, he entered the shuttle he arrived in and started up the engines, then blasted out of the hangar. Slayne stood in the doorway to the bay, and extinguished the Lightsabre he was tightly gripping in his hand. He had been chasing Groovy since he ran, but was unable to catch him. The Emperor would not be pleased…

The Imperial fleet blasted into hyperspace, leaving only the New Republic cruisers, and the Academy members in the space around Thedonias. Shouts of joy rang across every Comm channel.

“Well, that seemed easier than I thought. Almost too easy. Should we follow them?” Said Dissectional.

“No, not yet.. We’ll organize the troops and the Republic forces, then, we’ll make an attack on the Sith. Hold on, there’s an Imperial shuttle coming this way. Everyone, charge your weapons.”

“This is Darth Groovy. I’m piloting the Imperial shuttle. Do not fire, I repeat DO NOT FIRE!”

“Groovy, nice of you to join us. You made it out in time I’m assuming. Is Obi-Wan13 with you?”

“No” Groovy said sadly. “I was unable to rescue him. But now what do we do?”

“Now, we wait. If they wanted Obi-wan dead, he’d already be so, I’m sure they want him for something, and they want him alive. This war isn’t over yet, and we will save him, we’ll have our chance. There will be more battles than this, I can guarantee it. But for now… let’s just go home.” Said Exterminator234 as he turned for Thedonias, with the remaining ships following behind him.

And that concludes Episode II of the Academy Wars. It's finally done, whew. *wipes sweat from brow* I think I'm gonna take a little time off:D

BTW Slayne, it's strange... I do know that it's supposed to "Wraith", not "Wrath", yet I put down wrath everytime... must be my subconscious trying to tell me something.

We're gonna hold off on that until after the holidays. Reb is in a job that works heavy near then, and I can't hardly do the Academy Wars without him. So for now feast in the completion of two episodes of this famous series.

First of all, I would like to congratulate you Reb for the amazing ending to the Episode. Really, really good stuff:Dlol

Well done:thumbsup:

Secondly, I know we're having a lot of problems with where to post the next Episode. Can I just ask, would the Academy Wars go in the new Story Forum (if it is created, and would be amazing:)) or stay in this forum?:confused:

And...I've already started writing my story for Ep3:Dlol

I can't wait;)

11-24-2002, 05:29 PM
i have a favor to ask if its ok. i would like my character to interogate obi-wan because ive got a good idea for it and it could really show how much the darkside has taken over my character

11-24-2002, 06:41 PM
Is this for Ep3? If so, PM Obi with your ideas:)He has the final word about what happens to his character.

Just to give you all an update. I will be writing the prolouge for Episdode 3 and posting after the first of the year. As you now know we have a new "Fan Fiction" subforum so this no longer has to be written in RPG format.

To tide you all over I will be posting a special seperate Darth Groovy spin off series from the now Legendary Academy Wars. Also for all you Bond enthusiasts, I will be writing a special fan fiction story featuring Ian Flemming's famous spy. I also have some short storys up my sleeve as well. Hope you enjoy are new subforum and I wish you all A very happy Holiday!

Happy Holidays,

Darth Groovy:rudolph: :mauls: :gift: :frosty:
