View Full Version : Dark Ages, 10,000 BBY
04-14-2003, 06:38 PM
Before the Empire, before the Republic:
Since the invention of the Hyperdrive mankind has spread from his homeland, the cradle of his existance, out into the void.
Over the past 500 years conflict, chace and disaster have reduced the number of factions down to four. With the Death of Xem the Despot a large portion of the galaxy is up for grabs. Now the four remaining ruling houses must divide up this last area of contested space, or face another intergalactic war!
Okay, here's how I figure, this portion of SW history is pretty vague. So why not muck around. There are however rules about tech:
No Light Sabers
No Blasters, there are beam tubes but they way 15Kg including backpack and they are really unreliable.
No Proton Torps etc. just explosive missiles.
Cap ships have no Turbo Lasers, just "real lasers" and rockets.
No vibro blades.
So basically hand weapons are swords, knives and guns.
No Starfighters, atmopheric fighters that can be ferried from a Cap but no space worthy versions.
The Jedi are just a group of philosiphers.
No planets beyond the Inner Rim.
Sorry if thats long winded, but as near as I can tell, that how it is.
No God Moding.
No One post Kills.
Post a Bio.
Charecter must be an Inner Rim species, if in doupt go Human.
You must be affiliated to the one of the four ruling houses.
First three replies get to create the houses.
*Malken Flax watched his father, the old man was getting more agitated by the moment, Malken briefly considerd having the BattleDogs escort his father out before he killed someone. That, unfortunatly would be a terrible loss of face, so Malken let him rant.*
Draslo Flax: The Alcerpati system is on our border, it should be seeded to us!
*The other three lords present frowned.*
*The chamber they were in was a high, vaulted room, in the main tower of the "Galactic Central Goverment Palace" A title someone came up with to describe the quarterd castle, with the tower at its centre., that acted as the meeting place for the four ruling houses.*
*Malken sighed, it was going to be a long day.*
Name: Draslo Flax
Position: Leader of the House Flax, head of the Order of the BattleDogs.
General Description: An old man with white hair and a bad temper. He was once a great warrior, however he is far from his youth. This makes him bitter.
Name: Malken Flax
Position: Future Leader of the House Flax
General Description: A young man, of vision. He has a political mind however he is also a great General, Warrior and Pilot, despite this he hates war. He wishes to find a way to unite the houses and end the bloodshed.

((OOS: Very nice idea, BD. One question: Is this Cantina-verse related? [or allowing for the non-Star Wars ideas introduced in that group of RPGs]))
04-14-2003, 11:11 PM
((It would be interesting... Although if im not mistaken, bs would have to ask Deac right ^_^))
((*Wonders how he will begin with what to call his house...
"History is writen in the sands..." Crap! That was already dune... I mean, done! ^___^))
04-15-2003, 06:59 AM
((OSS: Redwing, well Cantina-Verse? *Shrugs.* I am bending the cannon a bit already, so why not. Try not create a mess of crossing Vampires and Demons in the first 4 pages though.
I actaully thought it would be interesting to see the roots of some of the modern charecter's families.))
04-15-2003, 08:33 AM
((Well that means the hosue of palpatine it out :P (Cracken's and my main characters)))
04-15-2003, 10:20 AM
Well Palpy isn't from a dynasty. As opposed to Flax or Deac.
(Kinda hoping for house Starkiller to pop up here.)
Go for the Mother's side.
Call is House Cracken. Although in that case you should probably speak to Cracken.
04-15-2003, 10:37 AM
((Its Cracken's basis for his character, Irvine is just a son of Cracken. So techincally Cracken controlls the bloodline, how ever the true history of palpatine's family would dictate otherwise))
04-15-2003, 11:07 AM
What true history, there is no history.
04-15-2003, 03:52 PM
((Interesing. You had to mention swords to catch my attention. although by keeping it to the inner rim planets you elimante the Aesir, (which doesn't matter since I probably wouldn't have included them in for this paticular rpg).
My question is would there be any alliances to start out with. Say I create House A, could the be allied with your house?))
[The Old Republic was actually formed 25K years BBY. Never mind though...here it is, by popular demand...]
It is a legend on the Mid-Rim world of Atredis that it was an Angel, carrying a second Angel that came to Atredis. It married with one of the local princesses, and formed the great House Starkiller.
A house founded on the principles of equality and justice. However, the galaxy was soon plunged into war, and the Atredians have found that if they do not fight, they will die...
Name: Lord Ulverom Starkiller
Bio: Ulveron clings to the old ways, but hyperspace has opened up new opportunites that he both fears and longs for.
Bio: The Lord's Aide and the head of the Atredian Paladins, Koravan seeks to make Atredis safe for it's people.
Ulverom: Any news from our diplomats?
Koravan: Nothing sir. However, we have managed to reach the furthest planet in the system, but it's uninhabited.
04-15-2003, 06:46 PM
((Actually Deac I think that was the first Republic and it colapsed. At any rate I don't care.
Admiral, not exactly allied, since if it was it would be counted as part of the Flax block. However, the houses can be on good terms. As to the Inner Rim, well that is very flexable.))
((Deac, remember you need deligates at the council meeting))
04-15-2003, 11:22 PM
House Omegain Zulus:
Rich Industralists, controling a large sum of the space ship manufacturing businesses. They seem to be competive to one another, but only but a mere cartel on the galatic proportions.
To the eyes of everyone, those companies are ran buy rich entrepreneurists, but behind the certains the ture leaders run the show...
Name: Von Duke Cortal
Age: Late thirties to earily fourties
Bio: A man of mystery, relitively peaceful, but his ideals make him someone to be afrid of...
Name: Col. Relena Dolton
Bio: Von Duke's right hand lady, she can be ruthless and cunning.
04-16-2003, 08:11 AM
((Gah. Stupid forum-eating post. Er...post-eating forum. It's 5 AM. I shouldn't be typing. I can do the um house thingy in the morning. Or maybe later from the morning from the lookyness of it. @_@
*A younger man, Torm Ilmater wears the robes of his house and stands in his seat*
Torm: Please! Let's calm down! Each House can have as many worlds as it can cope with...let's not start squabbling here! Lord Dralso, as that world is closest to your homeworld, House Starkiller makes no claim to it. However, we do wish to stake claim to the newly discovered world of Upsilok, one of the worlds close to the border...
Name: Torm Ilmater
Bio: Torm is the Lord's chief Diplomat and Master of Intelligence. He is a believer in the common good, and that the ends justify the means.
04-16-2003, 05:53 PM
Dralso: That is reasonable
*Malken highlights the map of Xem's territory.*
Malken: These worlds are rich is metal ores, including Plutonium and urainium There ar three planets, I suggest we make these worlds nuetral territory.
((Scar, you need to have delegates at the meeting as well. Having a "secret" house defeats the object and the mechanics of the rpg.*
04-17-2003, 03:10 AM
((Okay, I'm alive again! :D
BD: Deac's right, this whole thing is 25K BBY if Xem just died and we still have beam tubes. [ see: http://www.theforce.net/timetales/tt1-1/sect1-1.shtml ]
Not that it matters :)
Also you don't need to worry about vampires. Except perhaps for the ancient Lelan, the galaxy as we know it is empty of magic, vampires, and the like. (i.e. stuff from Mrear) The world of magic is hidden away.
Scar: Remember you can't control Cracken's characters, even dead ones. Also, didn't I tell you a billion times that there was no bloodline? Why do you keep insisting there must be a bloodline?))
House Darkholme is a sly and crafty one. It has two main divisions, or sub-houses: House Raven and House Slythen. House Slythen, the older house, has a reputation underhanded dealings and a hidden ruthlessness, and to be dealt with more warily. House Raven has a reputation of cleverness, and is the youngest of the houses. Together the two form House Darkholme. Their symbol is that of a raven and a serpent.
((BD, before I post bios, I have a question: Can you give some examples of Inner Rim species? I'm a little at a loss, and I don't want the RPG to be only populated with humans))
04-17-2003, 11:54 AM
(( Scar: Remember you can't control Cracken's characters, even dead ones. Also, didn't I tell you a billion times that there was no bloodline? Why do you keep insisting there must be a bloodline?
I never stated that I was. and in case that i mentioned anything, it was only being either sarcastic or jokingly ^_^))
*A delegate dressed in blue formaly militant clothing, swooshes around his borbon in his glass, keeping quiet letting the other delegates argue...*
Name: Minsku Dorcon
Age: Late thirties
Pos: Delegate for House 'OZ', but is remained not to decuss the 'sensitive' details and plans of his House to others...
Torm: *Looks over manifesto* Excellent...now as for this metal-rich system, I say it would be fair to give each house equal...
*Lord Ulverom suddenly appears on a Holoproj*
Ulverom: This is Lord Ulverom Starkiller. About thirty minutes ago by the time this message is played, an atempt on the life of my heir was made. I challenge those responsable to come forward! I await the reply of the council.
Torm: Forgive me, gentlemen, I had no idea of this event.
*A voice whispers in Torm's ear from an electronic infolink*
Gennadi: Neither did I. And that's worrying. You're on your own now, lad. I'm going back to Atredis at once.
Name: Gennadi Isotov
Bio: Lord Ulverom's master of assassins. Works closely and shares many personality traits with Torm. Has served the family since birth.
04-17-2003, 12:25 PM
*Another voice whispers, but in this time in Minsku's ear piece.*
Voice: "If anyone questions OZ of commiting such, deny it. And say if it was something it was only but a politcal stunt."
Torm: That message will have been sent to all the known worlds. I personally believe it to be the work of a group of seditious Atredians.
Gennadi:Don't tell them, but I'm thinking Darkholme or House OZ. However, keep negotiating. Anyone tries anything and I snipe them...
04-18-2003, 05:27 PM
Minsku: *After being so quiet, pus glass down.* "Atredians, what filth. I send my personal grief, and I'm sure that Von Duke's shall also sends his on the assasination attempt. May your officers find those reponsible." *slight bow*
Torm: I wouldn't think it wise to start calling MY people, and the race of House Starkiller filth, you facistic mouthpiece.
Gennadi: I'm gonna snipe him, I'm gonna snipe him...
04-19-2003, 10:29 AM
Minksu: "Appologies, how ever if 'your' people like to put out 'hits' on political leaders, there would have to had been a reason. And seeing is that your superiors are good individuals, these 'seditious Atredians' are filth, becuase in my personal opinion, good individuals don't need to be killed now do they?"
04-19-2003, 11:17 PM
((*Waits for BD to answer :D*))
Torm: House Starkiller believe you judge people as individuals. Therefore, not all of your lot are facisitc mouthpieces, just you
Gennadi *Relishing*: Ohhhh, you're hard, Torm.
*Torm scowls, giving him a hawkish look*
04-20-2003, 02:42 PM
Minsku: *smiling* "Touche, Torm Ilmater, touche... Obviously we aren't here to 'judge' one another, but to make business between each house." *sigh* "Let's get on with it shall we?"
Gennadi: *humming smugly* Da da de da da, de de daa...
Torm: So what further proposals are there?
04-22-2003, 09:41 PM
Minsku: "How about a minor, and when I mean minor only up to a very minute point, build up of some arms. Becuase as years shall pass, there will be need for some possible defence agenst any hostile species that we may encounter. Of course this 'Council' would regulate each house to a limit, becuase we wouldn't want a war between houses do we?"
Torm: Isn't the point here to discuss peace?
04-23-2003, 03:00 PM
Minsku: "Of course, but why would our houses, no, our 'race' wouldn't want to have to defend agenst any hostile races in the universe when we hardly have to defences to do so, becuase of tentions agenst each other?"
04-23-2003, 04:59 PM
((Sorry, Right, I conceed the time point.))
((Redwing, You have the Duros, and actually thats it. Come up with something. The Inner Rim is almost total human.))
Malken: We all have our own Armies. Most recently to defend ourselves from, shall we say rather well funded pirates. Do you know who I mean Minsku?
*Dralso waits a moment and then slams his gloved hand down on the table.* Enough! This bickering is pointless.
Torm: Does this mean I should return to Atredis and tell my Lord that this council has disbanded and we should operate independantly?
04-24-2003, 07:20 PM
*Malken regains his composure.* Not at all Torm, however, we need to be above board with every thing. I'm not sure all of us are. *Meaningful glance at OZ and Darkholme.*
04-25-2003, 08:08 AM
((And now for my belated entrance ;)))
Bio: Aeriv represents House Raven. With new advances in technology such as the Coruscanti hyperdrives, Aeriv sees this as a good time to be in a position of power in the galaxy.
Race: Genetically Engineered Human
Bio: Quiv comes from a group of genetically altered humans who colonized a planet after the creator of the experiment had died. His skin is covered in faint scales, which shimmer with all the colors of the rainbow in right lighting. His not-quite-human slitted eyes contribute even more to his eerieness. He represents House Slythen.
*Aeriv simply smiles, looking round at the other delegates. The overdramatism coming from all sides amused him greatly, and he could tell from the expression of his companion that it amused him too, but annoyed him as well. Quiv stands*
Quiv: The Houses of Darkholme agreed to attend this meeting because we expected that the other houses had something besides petty internal arguments to bring to the table. Am I to understand that I was...mislead?
Torm: It would help if someone scowls at Quiv wasn't trying to assassinate my Lord's children.
*Sits back down. Gennadi sighs*
04-25-2003, 08:48 PM
Dralso: This is pointless, Darkholme and OZ have no honour. We cannot negotiate if we cannot trust you. House Flax refuses to recogzize the houses of OZ or Darkholme. I have spoken with King Solo and he has aggreed that not more Correlian Hyperdrives will by supplied to either of you. Any ship of yours entering our space will be destroyed and we will declare open war.
*Dralso stands and storms out, flamnked by his BattleDogs. Malken walks over to Torm and wispers in his ear.*
Malken: Things may go badly between our houses if you do not break also. Just a warning my friend.
*Malkens sighs and follows his father.*
04-25-2003, 10:49 PM
Minsku: "No, honour, who is he to saw that agenst us..." *turns slightly to the two houses of Darkholme, and peers his eyes at the two members*
04-25-2003, 10:52 PM
*Quiv looks angry. Aeriv pats him on the shoulder*
Aeriv: It's perfectly alright. His bitterness and rage will destroy him, quickly. He will find himself quite unable to act upon his threats. *Both rise* House Darkholme came here to work with the rest of the galaxy as a whole; but House Flax, despite its protestations of a desire to end bloodshed and unite the galaxy in peace, instead demonstrates that its only desire is to quarrel and divide. If this is how it is to be, than so shall it be...
04-25-2003, 11:10 PM
Minsku: "Well if that has to be... He insulted both of our houses... If that house tried to attack you, I'm sure my house will most likey too. Your house being the most likey a better 'interest' to my superiors of course..."
Torm: I'm afraid that due to the recent attempt, all personell have been recalled to Atredis.
Gennadi: So much for peace.
*Moves toward ship*
04-26-2003, 08:07 PM
*Malken heads towards his sleek Sabre class fighter. His father heads, with his ontorarge to his personnal transport.*
04-27-2003, 03:17 AM
*A man watches from overhead Dralso's hangar. As his transport takes off, he turns on his comm*
Man: The payload is in place, the targets on board. Awaiting signal.
[I thought we didn't have fighters yet...]
*Torm runs into the hangar*
Torm: Wait! I would speak with you. It is clear that if we do not unite now Houses Oz and Darkholme will unite and destroy us both...
04-28-2003, 09:15 PM
*Minsku gets to his shuttle, and takes off.*
Minsku: "I appologise for my actions in there my lady..."
*Col. Relena Dolton walks in taking off a head set, clearly inicating that she was the voice in Minsku's earpiece.*
Relena: *Pulls out a handgun* "Appology accepted."
Relena: *Over comm.* "My lord, the 'trader' was removed from his position..."
*Later the body is ejected into space half way back towards House OZ's capital planet.*
04-30-2003, 07:48 AM
*Malken stops and turns to Torm.* I agree, it would appear war is on the agenda again. *Just then Draslo's transport explodes, knocking Torm and Malken to the ground.*
Malken: *dazed.* What? *Sees buning reckage.* Nooooooooooo!
*Gennadi drops in from the rafters.*
Gennadi: By the Hells, I had no idea...Torm
*Torm shakes his head. Gennadi draws out a sub-machine gun*
Gennadi: Stay down, I've got a spec force evac on the way...
Torm: So much for peace...
04-30-2003, 06:24 PM
*Malken regains his feet and sees the Darkholme operative running, he pulls out a .40 Caliber pistol and fires, the bullet catches the assassin in the knee. Malken runs toward him.*
05-01-2003, 04:28 AM
*The assassin turns on one knee, drawing an automatic*
Assassin: For House Darkholme!
*He fires point-blank at Malken*
*Aeriv hears the explosion, and the alarms following. A bodyguard runs up to him*
Guard: Time to go, sir...
*Aeriv and Quiv are caught up in the evacuation melee as they hurridly leave*
Gennadi: *$£&! *He leaps toward Malken. Meanwhile Torm ducks to the floor*
Aide: Lord Ulverom! We are recieving reports of a dangerous situation after the peace talks collapsed...!
Ulverom: Then war is coming...
05-01-2003, 08:02 PM
*OZ's capitial planet*
Relena: "My Lord, we have begining reports of conflicts between the other houses..."
Von Duke: "Fools, really. I think we will wait til each side becomes weakend, and side with a house whom is severely weakened by the other houses. Then in their opened arms, we shall kill them, with their vitals unprotected. With them gone, the other houses shall be already weakened, and our forces will have barely any trouble finishing off the remaining houses..."
*Gennadi knocks Malken down. Meanwhile Torm rapidly draws a pistol and fires at the Assassin's gun. He then grabs the assassin by the scruff*
Torm: Who sent you!?
05-04-2003, 07:30 PM
Malken: He's from Darkholme by the sound of it. Torm, contact your Lord, tell himw hat has happened. We are now at war.
*Atredis. Lord Ulverom paces around the central chamber of Castle Starkiller. Koravan enters, dressed in full armour*
Koravan: We are at war with House Darkholme. House Flax has alligned with us. We also believe House OZ are with the Darkholme. I've recalled all personnel and ordered ship production increased.
Ulverom: The hour is late indeed. Are they likely to use atomics?
Koravan: I don't know, sir.
Ulverom: How did it come to this...?
05-05-2003, 05:40 PM
*Malken's hologram appears in front of Ulverom. Malken wears the armor of the Lord of House Flax.*
Malken: Lord Ulverom, I am sorry that we have both lived to see these times. My House have completed preliminary investigations and we are now certain that Darkholme was responsible for my father's death. Alderranian Battle Crusers are being deployed. We will be in a position to strike within the week.
05-05-2003, 08:32 PM
Von Duke: "Relena, you have my strict athority to make sure our forces are 'prepared'..."
Relena: "Yes sir."
*Relena begins to leave.*
Von Duke: "Oh Relena, and do me a favor and annouce that our representive to our house was a traitor, and he was delt accordingly..."
Relena: "Yes, I will..."
Ulverom: I will deploy the Atredian Hawkguards to our borders. My order of Paladins is standing ready....I hate wars...
05-06-2003, 07:04 PM
Malken: So do I, however need must.
05-07-2003, 01:06 AM
*Two disguised transports leave the station, holding Quiv and Aeriv*
Aeriv: This could mean war, you realize. Undoubtably they will pin this on either House Darkholme or Oz. And Oz seems to wish to involve themselves in our business whether we would prefer it or not.
Quiv: This will mean war. And after all, why not? Why should we work with such simpering nitwits?
Aeriv: Because we are stronger as a whole, Set.
Quiv: Then we can be a whole, but better us in charge than the likes of them...
Ulverom: My forces will strike along the Darkholme borders. Where will yours be located?
05-08-2003, 05:14 PM
Malken: We intend to use the new class 10 Hyperdrives to jump behind their lines and take out their rear bases, once we have secured some of the less heavily defended worlds we can destroy the outer defences from both sides.
05-08-2003, 10:56 PM
*On holomonitors Relena appears on the screen*
Relena: "I am Relena Dolton, Second in command and new Representive to House OZ. There has been word that a possible war will ensure between the houses. So in that current movement, House OZ shall not envolve itself in the pity differences of the other houses, and remain neutral. I forgive for this disruption, I leave you to your normal routines..."
*Monitors change and return it their normal programmings.*
05-09-2003, 12:28 AM
((OOS: I'm kinda lost here...Houses Starkiller and Flax are supposed to be the good guys and yet they're spoiling for war? Are they just really desparate to kill people? Did I miss something? o.O))
[House Starkiller does not take kindly to assassination attempts. Besides, something needs to happen]
Ulverom: Then let us hope we speak again in better circumstances. Ulverom out.
05-10-2003, 06:54 PM
((Well, picture this, you're in your late 20's and you've just inherrited 1/4 of the galaxy because your father was bruitally murdered, along with his house servants and close friends.))
05-10-2003, 07:02 PM
((I hate to point this out, but besides what the assassin said there's no evidence House Darkholme did anything ;)))
05-11-2003, 11:15 AM
((I conducted a full investigation, the explosive was of a type only produced by Darkholme.))
[And Ulverom's information is coming from House Flax, whom he trusts]
05-12-2003, 01:21 PM
((Well see, you didn't say that. ;) But still I thought getting a war started here would be harder.))
*By evening, House Darkholme had issued condolences, and a statement that they had nothing to do with the assassinations. But at the same time House Raven prepared for seige. They knew that House Flax was out for war, and nothing they said would change that.
House Slythen, however, was planning something else...*
*Koravan's ship reaches the front lines. It docks with the command ship, the ASS Furro*
Koravan: Torm, Gennadi. Good. Let's get down to business. Lord Ulverom has agreed to stay back on Atredis, while my Paladins are assigned to the front.
Our first strike is in this system *points* Babilun. We're going to jump in behind their defenses with a small group and then jump the main group in.
05-18-2003, 04:26 PM
*Down in the depths of his Alderranian Palace Malken watches a new weapon being forged, more than 6 feet long the sword is made of a black metal.*
Malken: This is a weapon of war, no decoration.
05-18-2003, 08:33 PM
*Von Duke visits a Ship Yard in orbit. He goes to a production leader.*
Von Duke: "Is that new hyperdrive beign installed in all of our new spacecraft?"
Production Leader: "Yes, and we are moving a little slower then expected. He never thought we had to deal with equipment like this."
Von Duke: "First off, I had some people to research for new hyperdrice technology. Don't ask any more information about it. I bid you good day." *Begins to walk away, then suddenly turns around.* "And do get those engines installed on time, or I will find someone who will..." *Continues walking*
05-25-2003, 12:53 AM
((OOS: I can't fight in a war without people attacking, since I'm on the defensive side ^_~))
05-25-2003, 07:27 PM
Yeah, lol, sorry. Things should start moving tomorrow, I'm going to write this bit and I haven't had time.
05-31-2003, 02:05 AM
Name: Hugh Crocker
Alignment: House Starkiller
Position: Sargent in army, hoping to be promoted.
Bio: A young soldier with a knack for technology, especially new onel. He specializes in missions that require a small group.
Currently Stationed at: ASS Furro
*Koravan notices Crocker walk past*
Koravan: Sergeant...*looks at Insignia* Crocker. How long until we can drop out of hyperspace?
05-31-2003, 01:53 PM
Crocker: Depends, if the hyperdrive breaks down, a couple of seconds, if it doesn't a couple of days at most, at least a day, I can't tell you since, I don't really know where we're going yet. They haven't gotten to briefing the grunts yet.
05-31-2003, 11:18 PM
*A woman, dressed in a House Starkiller uniform, holds a small recorder around a bend of the two individuals, Koravan and Crocker.
She records the information spoken. She knew that was useful information, which couldn't be sent while traveling in hyperspace. She takes out the tape, and puts it in her clevage.* ((:D))
*The ships drop out of hyperspace in front of the shipyards. The two large cruisers deploy their fighters, whilst the smaller frigates begin to fire on the defences*
06-01-2003, 10:21 AM
((Guys I'm going away on a trip for a while, so if Deac or Flax, since my char is on their side, could control my character, i'd really appreciate it. Same rules, no killing, maiming, or having him be a traitor))
06-01-2003, 01:59 PM
*The woman makes her way to a computer terminal in the lower levels of the ship. She jerry-rigs into the comms system and sends out the encripted recording in a ultra-high frequency. It to transmitted openly to the other houses.*
((Question: Who is House Starkiller attacking now?))
[House Starkiller is attacking House Darkhome]
*Koravan sits in the command deck*
Koravan: Torm, what's happening out there?!
Torm: Our comm's being jammed. I'm switching the radio frequencies...
Koravan: I want all guns on the antenne!
Gennadi: Guns! Antenne!
*The ship fires it's broadside cannons at the antenne*
06-02-2003, 08:08 PM
((You just shot you're own ship Deac :D))
06-02-2003, 08:20 PM
((Sorry again guys, suffering form Lethagy.))
*Malken sits in the command chair of the darkened bridge, the red battle lighting had come on early.*
Helm: 5...4...3...2...1 REVERSION!
*Malken braced himself as the ship dropped out of hyperspace, his greatest fear was always that the drive would not dissengage.*
Malken: Bring all batteries to bear, launch all Sabres and Rapiers. report on the enemy!
Tactical: Sir, scanning darkholme defences now!
06-02-2003, 11:10 PM
*Darkholme's defenses are nonexistent. In fact, the entire planet's facilities (which consisted of two cities) have been abandoned. Several space stations orbit the planet, but scans reveal that they have also been deserted*
Torm: Koravan! There's nothing there! You just shot a derelict station!
Gennadi*Standing*: Scorched Earth. Just like Darkholme. But we'll take advantage of it. We do not move the fleet further until the facilities here are operational. Comm, signal the fleet to jump in.
Koravan: Victory to the House?
06-04-2003, 05:06 PM
*Malken's Image shimmers into existance infront of Gennadi and Koravan.*
Malken: Don't move in yet, doubtless there are booby traps. I conceed the Victory to House Starkiller in it's entirity.
06-04-2003, 09:27 PM
((OOS: FYI...very little material I've got to work with here. BD you realize that your characters are about to force House Darkholme to act in self-defense...I assume you don't care that they seem extremely war-hungry?))
[Well, all the war hungry need is an excuse. And all the others need a reason. Assassination by a government's a good one in my opinion.]
Koravan: Very well. Deploy the sensor ships.

((Dralso was killed be Darkholme. I.E. The French just assassinated the Prime Minister. That means war.))
06-05-2003, 11:30 PM
((Not necessarily if someone simply claiming to represent France did it...unless England was looking for an excuse to go to war. Now this is what's throwing me off: there was no investigation into the assassination, no other actions on Darkholme's part to indicate they wanted war, and BD's characters claim they don't want war. Huh?))
[What! The french just killed the prime minister! Right then!
*Grabs mini gun and heads for Dover...*]
06-06-2003, 08:46 PM
((Well WWI was started with about that much proof so there you go.
Deac: We're having a party down here, then we'll kill the French. That is unless, of course, you're a Blairite
06-06-2003, 08:52 PM
((I'll think i'd go bomb some unexpecting Americans, whom are totally in a neutrality state not only that not even expecting a war....
Whoops, now I knew I shouldn't of wrote over that one save file I had...
can we get back to the story now? ^_^))
06-06-2003, 11:06 PM
((Yes, but BD that's the point, everyone in WWI was desperate for war...in this case supposedly no one is. House Raven of Darkholme doesn't want war (even though Slythen does), and everyone else has stated in one way or another that...oh whatever. *Gives up*
However like I said it would be out of character for my House to do anything except draw in closer to their central planets at the moment. So I still have very little material to work with presently :())
06-07-2003, 01:31 AM
((I think we shoudl split the actual planets four ways, based on who discribed their house's attributes.
For instence I siad mine had a fairly decent amount of industrial planets, I could get a few planets around Nar shadda or Coruscant, for example...
then we could have alot better material to work with, dont you think red?))
[Well, ok. I guess we should sort out which planets we get- but no major ones. Also, I think this might help:]
*Lord Ulverom steps out onto the balcony above the central sqaure of Atredian City. Crowds of anti-war protestors gather*
Ulverom: You know of the assassination attempt on House Flax. Also, the attempt on my son, we have found evidence of Darkholme involvment. We did not previously release this informtaion because it carries further reprocussions.
The Darkstar Cult is again active and believed to have carried out the operation for House Darkholme.
These are troubled times.
06-07-2003, 04:05 PM
((When I said material I didn't mean...oh, never mind :p
But it's okay, because Deac's post gave me something to work with ;)))
*Aeriv watches the broadcast silently. One of his trusted aides walks in*
Aeriv: Any information on the assassinations?
Aide: Intelligence told me to report that they've uncovered evidence that the Darkstars, a cult based on Atredis, were behind at least one of them.
Aeriv: I know. *points to the broadcast* I just found out.
Aide: They are placing the blame for all of this on House Darkholme.
Aeriv: This is definitely not going according to plan.
Aide: It seems that not just your plan is involved in this, sir...Drakken Set wishes to see you.
Aeriv: Drakken? Why?
Aide: I don't know exactly, sir. But I have a feeling you aren't going to like it.

*Duke Von sits in his executive quarters at his table, swirling a glass of brandy, taking a slip every now and then.*
Duke Von "When will they jsut get it over with and get more destructive... This war theya re having is all too boring..."
08-12-2003, 06:08 PM
*Kjølen raises from Japan and heads West*
Kjølen: Now that war is going to be broken out, it will be a perfect time for me to help rid the world of the evil soulless Youkai living side by side, with and oblivious to men.
But which side does the evil reside?
*Kjølen continues west, and soon lands himself, in Paris, France.*
08-12-2003, 06:40 PM
((Yo k-jo, that has nothing to do with the rpg ^_^))

This Thread Will Restart:
08-18-2003, 06:28 AM
((BD, do you want me to desticky it until then? Or would you rather I leave it as it is :)))
08-19-2003, 09:22 PM
Just leave it. It'll drop anyway.
I'm not gonna be able to post on Sept 5 and will be unable to resume until the 16th at earliest. Can we keep House Starkiller out of it for a while until I get back?
08-21-2003, 06:22 PM
Yeah, we'll restart 16th then.
08-31-2003, 01:55 PM
[The Old Republic was actually formed 25K years BBY.]

((Destickying for over six months of inactivity. In fact, it's been seven, so I should've destickied it last month. ;)
If anyone wants to continue this, post and I'll resticky.))
05-03-2004, 04:43 PM
((Noooooooooo! what happened to restarting it?! Don't let it die jpeople))
05-27-2004, 04:01 PM
((*Dusts off thread.*))
*It has been six months and after an initial offensive by the Forces of Light the war has gone cold. Malken Flax, unwilling to risk his new terretories, has halted his advance and is now stockpiling weapons and resouces in preperation for an extended campaign.*
((If anyone new wants to join feel free. Read the rules on the first page.))

*Duke Von dressed in his usual aristocratic military attire. He stands on a observation deck of one of his shipyards, looking at the preparing fleet, with his hands folded behind his back.*
*The technition whom had been overseeing the installment of the new hyperdrive engines had walked up with a report and a smug look on his face.*
Technition "My lord, the hyperdrives are all properly installed into the fleet, and this is a report on the installments of the other shipyards of their progress on the same project, whom are also complete."
Duke Von "And it only took this long? Well I am not surprised at all..."
Technition "My lord! It only took so long due to the complete dismantling of the previous systems and intergrating it with the newer drives!"
Duke Von "Do not worry, this war's progression is turning in your favor, preparations are almsot complete and soon Oz with a fresh untouched fleet, with new technology will enter the war agenst battle worn advasaries..."
*House Starkiller has drawn back, and is now fanatical in destroying the Darkstar Cult, as its territory is in civil war.*
06-04-2004, 04:49 PM
*Malken now turns some of his new forces to assisting his ally. Even now he comunicates with Lord Starkiller,*
Malken: ........How may my forces assist you, my friend.
Ulverom: Atravis Three has declared itself a member of the cult. It's now their primary world. I can't tell which side half of my men are on....I need outside influence.
06-05-2004, 07:09 PM
Malken: They say the members of the Jedi cult can read minds. They have a monestary on one of my worlds. I will see if I can persuade some of the Monks to help you root out the traitors. Aside from that I can send troops, and I will support you publically.
06-12-2004, 03:37 PM
((You two waiting on me or something? :D))

((Destickying for inactivity. Poor RPG, second time it's happened. As per usual, will resticky if people rejoin/BD wants to carry on.))
