View Full Version : Cantina Part 10: The Dawning
Coruscant is covered in night. Vampires now lay claim to the galaxy's jewel. Orthos Darkstar lies dead, and Deac Starkiller has gone on a mad rampage in revenge for his dead nephew....
Awww hell, no-one new ever joins!
*Deac awakes to see laughing vampires and the sky turned black*
Deac: Well, you have succeeded where Lokpihet could not...but
*Deac feels a familiar prescence come into him...and then another. He activates his sabers, filled with new strength*
FOR EVERY DARK STAR THERE IS A STARKILLER!
*Charges toward Kvana, slashing*
05-12-2003, 05:37 PM
((Not true Deac. Scar joined, so did Jokemaster and Rouge 15... ;)))
*Odin stands on the steps leading to his palace. Behind him stood his family, council members, valkyries and einherjar.*
Heimdall: I see them. Still a good ways away.
Odin: How many are coming here?
*Odin nods. Finally the drakes had returned Asgard.
A valkyrie hands Odin a small message, a report about the situation on Coruscant. Odin read it then put it in his pocket. He would consider the new developments later*
05-12-2003, 05:44 PM
*Cracken's speeder his buffeted by high wind. the speeder stalls, and begins to dive, and Cracken sees the walkway approach quickly. He concentrates, and pulls the speeder 180* up, pointing it to the sky, and accelerates it not by propulsion, but by the Force. he levels out, and with the propuslion drive, he get's the speeder to max. Suddenly, the sky goes from clear to black.
Goddamned, he did it. But how did he know they wanted to turn this world into night eternal? he forces that question out of his mind, and continued. 2 minutes until he got there, till he could find this leader and Rwos.*
*Tojo walked onto the bridge, Admiral Karrak bowed, and gave Tojo his report.*
Tojo: The Republic still hasn't responded to our offer of santcuary.
Karrak:No sir. where's Emperor Starr?
Tojo: He sensed Cracken planetside, and has gone to find him.
Karrak: and the heiress?
Tojo: You mean Alys? *he shook his head* still nothing. Bring in the fleet. get them ready to off lift survivors and fleeing citizens.
*Karrak nodded, and looked at his captain. suddenly, the Imperial Fleet appeared out of hyperspace. the Super Star Destroyers Fade, Ess Pire, and Vengance, with the fleet of Star Destroyers stood ready to take refugees.
((Battledog are you gonna let me begin rescue ops for civi's and govnerment officials?))
05-12-2003, 08:18 PM
*Kioet recovers after getting a look at Farran*
Kioet to Artemis: Is he going to be ok?
05-12-2003, 08:45 PM
((That's right, i think new people come in the beginning of stories, like Catina 8, but in Cantina 9 was the "sequel" to that, and so is this.))
*The Spook was searched for weapons, when they found he had none, the security soldiers told him to wait*
Spook: I'm not going anywhere.
05-12-2003, 08:53 PM
Artemis: He...I don't get it. He was pratically comatose until a few minutes ago. He's not conscious, but his brain activity is...
*Suddenly, Farran's eyes open. He shoots straight up in his bed*
Farran: The sun!
*Kvana does not react to Deac's attack. One instant, he stands there. The next, Deac's sabers pierce only smoke. The remains of the dark energy that had been there before rise upwards into the sky*
Rwos pulls himself up*
Rwos: What in seven hells...he did it...
*A new presence registers in Rwos' mind. Something---or someone---totally unfamiliar...
Down in the courtyard, the vampires melt away. Most of them, especially the hour-old fledglings, had been totally drained of power*
05-12-2003, 09:14 PM
((Just to prove you wrong deac, just to prove you wrong...))
Race: Human cyborg (failed experment)
Occupation: Once was a bounty hunter
Carrying: Force sword ((think of it as a light saber thats always on))
:2 bladed blasters
:an old worn trench
:a old picture of a happy family
: C.A.T ((deperrsent))
Bio: A failed cyborg, kaildor has been shuned by all races due to
the flaw in his system. He has been forced to live in the run
down slums of Coruscant, with others that many wished did
not simply exsist. The only reson Kaildor has not lost his mind
is beacuse it is caged in his Processer. He has very slight
force powers, nothing offenfive and nothing and trained jedi
should have aproblem with.
Kaildor stumbaled through the now dead streets of Coruscants slums. he should be dead, the vampire attacks are becoming stronger and more frequent and soon he will not have the strength to carry on.

((GASP! someone who's been here for a couple of months proved Deac wrong, go get the camera redwing))
05-12-2003, 09:23 PM
*Fused Irvine stands looking at the tower as the planet falls into darkness, still consentrating on his arm.*
Fused Irvine: "Neat trick. Heh." 'Okay, now they can at least could say if they were to bring this world to eternal darkness, they can say it with out stating it as a metaphor...'
*Vertmor stands up then brushs himself off. Noticing his lack of shadow he looks at the sky.*
Vertmor: "Ah ha ha ha ha! Kvana Clare the second! You've done it!" *calming down, talking more softly.* "Now lets see how my gifts are under the black sun..."
*Vertmor walks to the balcony edge, eyes glowing red enugh to light the surounding area. Gritting his teeth, he pulls off his cloak and body armour, soon after he yells in pain as two large wings burst from his backside.*
*RH Irvine notices the quick lighting change, and he changes the external sensors to night vision, but with no luck, after a change to Ultra Violet he can barely see what is where with some help using the force.*
*Deac does nothing, but only moves toward the next nearest Vampire, flowing from his last attack. His sabers move toward Vertmor. Then a voice he has not spoken in leaves his mouth*
Leaving you alive was my only mistake
*Slashes at Vertmor's neck*
05-13-2003, 04:06 PM
*Vertmor with his powers highend, he now continues to develop demonic features. He notices Deac and dodges at an incredible speed, he grabs the saber, destorying the front end not knowing his strength yet. Shortly afterwards he grabs deac by the neck, and pounds him up agenst a nearby wall.*
Vertmor: "I remember that voice. It must have been so long ago to you, yet only a few weeks for I. That 'avatar' that posessed that child, now in that body."
*Vertmor peers down at Deac's belt, seeing the other sabers. he takes them with his free hand and crushes them.*
Vertmor: "Exactly, you should have killed me, maybe..."
*Vertmor becomes interupted by the Bone Reaver's blade impaling through the chest, from behind. Screaming, he drops Deac, as the blade is pulled out of the Vampire's backside. When the blade leaves the body, blood pours from it, draining the Vertmor of his own life blood, stright into the Reaver it is absorbed. Another vampire with demonic facal features holds the Bone Reaver, grinning.*
???: *At the body* "Pathetic child, I shouldn't have created you, your too arongant. Then yet again so was I..."
*Deac moves toward the next vampire, sabers ready*
Deac: What are you doing here? And what are you?
05-14-2003, 05:29 PM
stumbling out the slums kaildor saw a tower dominating his view.
Only one thought passed through his warped mind...
Where is .....the starkiller
His cybernetic eyes saw the world in a host of coour as he changed through vison modes untill he reached Pharmones
Hes processer cross scaned DNA from starkiller. his world turned grey exept for a bright green shape at the top of the tower
starkiller..time to answer..
drawing his sword kaildor begain to move toward the base of the tower
05-14-2003, 06:02 PM
*Cracken's speeder nears the tower. Doing a fly by, he see's a small way in, but not large enough for his speeder. no matter. he opened the cockpit, wind blowing in his face. he circled around, and lept.
and he fell. and he kept falling. SITHSPIT!!
Suddenly, Cracken dissapeared in a flash, then re-appeared on the balcony he was aiming for. 40 stories up from where he was. amazing. He concentrated, and teleported again to a balcony higher. Cracken smiled, and laughed. Force Speed now has nothing on him. He blew open the door to the balcony with his Ultima power, and lit his lightfoil, and strode in to the tower.*
05-14-2003, 07:04 PM
Breaking into a full sprint kaildor saw vampires fighting other Figures at the towers base. A handfull of creatures saw him and tried to attack him. Without breaking from his run kaildor swung beheading the first vampire, the 2nd clawed his left cheak spaying blood over its hand before it was severed. Leaping over the other kaildor kept running with 3 vampires in pursuit. About 12 meaters from the wall kaildor jumped and stabbed the tower with his blade. Hanging he drew one of his blasters and shot a small hole in one of the walls, rehosted his pistol and swung over to it draging his sword free from the wall. the pursuing vampire shad started to climb after him. but still only one thourgt filled his mind..
it was going to be along climb and it would be a long way to fall...
05-14-2003, 08:47 PM
Vampire: "You don't know me human. But I'm sure that entity that poscess you does. There was once a child who had that in him once, it seemed like an eternity, but yes, I remember that energy like it was a few minutes ago."
*The vampire paces the room in the dark.*
Vampire: "Alas I purposely trapped a portion of my soul onto a plague, and sent it into the heavens so long ago. When I was killed, the rest of my soul rejoined. Sometime later somefool found me, and brought me to this planet, where I remained til Kvana came along. And now I shall remain trapped in this tower forever, a price for my cowardness, unless..."
*As RH Irvine flys past, a quick ray of light perces a few holes in the wall, showing an oddly well dressed Vampire, whom in that brief moment in time he'd seemed to appear 'bat-like'...*
*The Vampire walks over the Vertmor's corpse. He flips the Reaver around on the handle, holding it like a long dagger. Then he strikes the lowerback, bringing the bladeall the way up the back and to the skull. The body levitates as the spine and skull are torn from the body, as it disolves. The Reaver now imbuned the dead vampires power into the blade itself.*
Vampire: "We have to find that weaking brother of his. I want to finish this blade. It'll be the only thing to kill Kvana now with the sun darkened like it is..."
*RH Irvine circles the spire, then he feels his Father close-by. He turns to see a speeder crashing into the wall of the tower, then a man, whom seemed to be jumping fast from one level to another...*
RH Irvine: 'Thats him! It's got to be...'
*RH Irvine pilots the ship up to just above Cracken's level. Then he opens the cargo door, and force jumps onto a balcony. The ship flys away on autopilot to find a suitable landing area on it's own.*
05-15-2003, 11:33 AM
((OOS: Sorry for delay, was temporarily computer-less. ^^
Cracken: I assume we're talking about the same tower))
*Gilian and Rwos re-enter the top of the tower*
Gilian: Another vampire? *She draws her blade* You should have run with the others while you had the chance.
Rwos: *suddenly realizing* Cracken? What in...
It's definitely Cracken. But what is this? That has to be some sort of magic I'm sensing...else how am I sensing it? But how would Cracken get that kind of power...
*Below the tower, Starr lands his transport. He can sense Cracken, but...different somehow...
He Force leaps into the air, aiming for a path to the top of the tower*
*It took several minutes to calm Farran down. By that time everyone had got the news from the Holonet; the sun over Coruscant was somehow, impossibly, blocked out*
Farran: Magic. It's magic, it has to be.
Artemis: But sir, magic...
Farran: I know! Not in this dimension. But how do you know someone didn't bring it in? Someone like me?
Artemis: Well, of course it's possible... but the amount of power it would take, well...again, possible, but hard to believe.
Farran: I've seen far more unbelievable things in my lifetime.
Artemis: The question remains, what do we do about it?
Farran: We run. Get off this planet, that's what. Get to somewhere less populated, less central to galactic affairs. Somewhere where it's easier to hide.
Artemis: But sir, need I remind you that as far as the galaxy is concerned, Farran Darkholme is dead...along with all the other Imperial Separatist Councilmen, when Starr Hailfire demolished their capital building.
Farran: It isn't the galaxy I'm worried about.
edited because Cracken's not in the same room as Rwos
*Deac looks shocked*
Cracken? Didn't he...I don't even remember....hah. Funny? In the speed of life how you can forget someone so easily...
Now, vampire, whose side are you on?
05-15-2003, 07:18 PM
Vampire: "You don't know me human, that that 'voice' does..."
*Sertmor walks in, the tips of his fingers turned to nubs.*
Sertmor: "You killed my brother."
*the Vampire turns and in a flash quicker then Sertmor can react, is as well impaled by the Reaver.*
Sertmor: *dieing words* "It's you... Vora..."
*The vampire lets the blade slide off the body, then he preforms the same ritual on Sertmor as he did on Vertmor.*
Vampire: "You had ocne a sword, called the 'Starkiller'. If you use it agenst Kvana, he'll only laugh at you. His race would be more highly sensitive to this envioment, increasing his powers. Your lucky that I hate Kvana as well."
Deac: I don't need Starkiller anymore. All I need is these *ignites sabers* and to know where Kvana is. However, seeing as you just fragged those two I'll let you live.
05-16-2003, 05:09 PM
Vampire: "Fine then, go, use your weapons and die with out ever touching Kvana. Or use this weapon when It is completed to penetrate his dark fields of energy, and kill him. Trust me I know alot more then you do in the matter..." *The vampire fades slightly, then seems whole again.*
05-16-2003, 07:42 PM
Kioet: Hey, my suit was damaged, any idea when we can get it repaired?
05-16-2003, 08:09 PM
*Bilbringi Maximum Security Prison*
*Jutrok now glowing with supercharged midicholorians, he's physically preapred for something that he just might die in, but at least he'd die fighting. He mentaly prepares for what would wait for him outside...*
Jutrok: 'Might as well do it now, I already sacrified a few years of my life for this... Well, what the heck.'
*The cell door dents, then flys open on its own. Alarms go off, and Jutrok force runs at an emmense speed, dodging repeater fire from turrets and stormtroopers. Jutrok answers to large precentages of the stormtroopers by having them temperately unconscious, allowing Jutrok to pass not shot at, and with out killing anyone in the process.*
05-16-2003, 10:06 PM
*The spook was taken to a small room and was told to wait. He waited patiently for someone to interrogate him*
05-17-2003, 01:20 PM
*A Woman, dressed in robes and in her mid twenties walks into the room.*
Woman: "Okay, I'd like to ask you a few questions. You don't need to worry about anything. My people just want to know how did you find our place, and any other simple questions that I may ask. Depending on your answers of course. Just answer truthfuly and we'll let you be on your way."
05-17-2003, 02:11 PM
Spook: I told you, I'm a merchant, I'm on vacation and I got lost, My hyperdrived suddenly dropped me in the middle of, according to my charts, nowhere.
Deac: You are offering it to me?
05-17-2003, 03:19 PM
*The vampire smiles.*
Vampire: "This blade, minus what came from those two, is whats left of my phsyical manifestation. I have fooled so meny, even my children, didn't know I was nothing more then this ghastly form. I'm nothing more then a spirit traped inside a self-levitating blade, making people think its being held."
05-17-2003, 05:05 PM
Bilbringi Maximum Security Prison
*Alarms blared all around, red lights flashing. The Commendant ran to his command center, and started yelling orders*
Commendant: LOCK DOWN! Close all Blast doors leading to that area! The Elite Guard man battle stations, have all stormtroopers in position! Unleash the Ysalimari!
Officer:Sir, the Ysalimari aren't here yet......
Commendant: WHAT!? fine, we'll constain te situation. release gas. kill him if you can't take him alive!
*Jutrok ran through the halls, when a blast door started to come down ahead of him. The slamming of heavy, meter thick blast doors clanged as they came down. Gas started to fill the corridors.*
05-17-2003, 05:10 PM
((Okay...fully back online now (I hope) ^_^))
Gilian: And we're supposed to believe you have our best interests in mind?
Rwos: The energy that was protecting Kvana wasn't his own magic. It was a effect of the spells he was casting, using a separate energy source.
Gilian: The magic books were protecting him. Protection of that kind doesn't last -he only used it for a few minutes. So what you just said about the blade being the only thing that can kill him was a lie.
*Rwos' comlink buzzes*
Rwos: We're leaving now. *to Deac* You can accept this ghost's offer if you want, but I wouldn't recommend it...
*Starr finally reaches Cracken. He stops dead at the sight.
Something was different about his master. To Starr's senses, there seemed to be a pale, translucent white energy field around and inside him. The field was pulsing, changing...melting through every pore of his body like liquid metal. There was also something about it...as if it was counting down to something...fast*
What in the Force...
Farran: We may not have all the materials, but I'll try.
Artemis: *pulling Farran aside* We're taking him with us?
Farran: Yes, why not? Like us, he has nowhere else to go. Also there's something about him...
*The former site of the demolished Cantina*
*Huge, alien construction droids are constructing a building on the site. The top looks like old Cantina, except larger...and with extensive underground construction going on as well.
The woman with the business suit stood watching. Two disguised Shadows stood on either side of her*
Woman: How goes it?
Shadow: On schedule, Ms. Aren.
Woman: Good. Security?
Shadow: Maximum. No breaches yet. A few suspicious observers, but no one...
Woman: Good. Remember, we want the original building completely restored to its original capacity. It's what's below it that will be different. *She turns to look at the mostly-rebuilt Cantina* A dimensional vortex on a little dustball in a godforsaken galaxy like this? Who would have thought...
05-17-2003, 05:16 PM
*Cracken sees Starr leap up into the level he was on infront of him. He smiled. He's gotten stronger, though leader isn't suited for him. He sighed slightly. You still have much to learn, young one... much to learn...*
Well, hello Starr, nice to see your in good form. Shall we crash teh party inside?
*Cracken turned, and launched an Ultima blast at the door, blowing it in. as smoke cleared, Cracken walked defiantly into the room. he looked around. The vampire leader isn't here. He pointed his lit lightsaber at Rwos,*
I need to talk to you. The Devastator is in orbit, it's no longer safe on the Imperial Center.
05-17-2003, 05:32 PM
Rwos: Cracken...what are you talking about?
Gilian: Who are you?
05-17-2003, 05:45 PM
The Imperial Center is no longer safe, do you have trouble hearing? Have you looked outside lately? have you been outside. Vampires are roaming the city. It won't be long until they have the planet under there control.
*Cracken looks at Gilian* you, you're a vampire, are you not? In case you must know, i'm the Emperor of the Imperial Remnant.
*He looks at Rwos* Why haven't you kiled this one yet? No matter, we'll talk about it later. Starr, call down the transports.
05-17-2003, 05:46 PM
*Jutrok force runs stright into the blast door, creating a fairly good dent in it. He notices the gas beginning to fill the now enclosed room.*
Jutrok: *to a monitor* "What a shame, most people call the force boundless. I call it not only that but much more, how ever there is still alot of physical limitations, thats why I'm unleashing powers beond my poetental. I bid you farewell..."
*Jutrok puts both hands on the blast doors, and forces them open. He continues to waste more of his life energy getting to a hanger, and stealing a shuttle capable of hyperspace flight, so he can get to Coruscant...*
*RH Irvine reaches Starr.*
RH Irvine: "Ah, yes I remeber you. And your welcome for my actions in helping save those crew members." *suddently notices Cracken. He Jerks his head at him.* 'Is that him? It has to be...'
*A lone man in tatherd robes pounds on the doors, jus toutside where Farran, Artemis and Kioet stands.*
Man: "Farran I know you're there. I didn't come all this way out for nothing!"
05-17-2003, 05:52 PM
Rwos: Gilian has a soul. You could say she is a half-vampire.
Gilian: Why do you think we're here? We need to kill the vampires. We know it isn't safe. Also, I believe you're lying. No one in this dimension has the kind of---
Rwos: No. Gilian, he's telling the truth.
Rwos: Cracken, we can't leave. We have to stop what is happening. You see the sun? It's being blocked out by a power called "magic". One of the vampire's leaders engineered this - and to stop it we need to find him. The power is spreading, Cracken. In a few days, more suns will be covered. Then more and more, until the entire galaxy is covered in darkness...
Gilian: If we don't stop it quickly, this dimension is going to become a demon playground. So. We aren't leaving.
05-17-2003, 05:55 PM
Vampire: "Kvana Clare, that Vampire who's using those spells to create a barrer of energy to protect him, do you think that he's foolish enough to not create such barrer around those books? Fine then, if any of you thinks it over, you'll eventualy find my idea worth while."
*The Vampire tosses the Reaver upwards, and it coems spining downwards onto him. The ghost is absorbed into the reaver itself, as the blade sticks into the floor.*
05-17-2003, 07:10 PM
*Cracken thinks* Well, then, Rwos, enlighten us all on how you think we should destroy a man who is not here. Or a man so paranoid he erects a barrier around himself. And i know what magic is you nitwit. how do you think i can teleport now.
*Cracken glares at Gilian* I have my eye on you.
*He turns to the new presence in the room. His son...Irvine*
You. You better have a damned good excuse or begging routine down, because that's the only way it'll save you after that little insurrection you pulled. *He sees Irvine begin to speak* not now, later. we have buisness to take care of.
05-17-2003, 07:21 PM
Rwos: Cracken, I don't know what happened to you, but you have no idea what you speak of. I don't know what you are, but it isn't magic. We're going to find the vampire. There is only so many places he can hide.
05-17-2003, 10:22 PM
*After begin put off by his own father, RH Irvine clentches a fist, but he keeps his mind clear, sort of...*
RH Irvine: 'What an arrogant. For force sakes, like I had any choice for leaving, I was only a child.' *It hits him.* 'So thats why a clone of myself was created, argh, how stupid of me...' "Pardon me, seeing is that I just got here, prehaps all I would need to inquire that a 'vampire' created all this mess and thats why all of you are here?"
*Fused Irvine sences himself.*
Fused Irvine: "That little prick. He's here. I might pay one more visit. Seeing is that all the rest of those fools are going to be preoccupied..." 'Granted that my arm still needs a little more time to heal. I might as well pull off come illusion tricks.'
*Fused Irvine rips a metal plank from the floor and throws it at the spire, immeately he force jumps onto the metal plank, propelling him with out using much force energy.*
*The plank hits the tower dead on, a portion is stuck into the wall.*
Fused Irvine: "How sad, I'm about 4 levels below the fools..."
*Fused Irvine begins to conseal his presence. He begins to walk around inside the tower.*
05-17-2003, 10:47 PM
*A sword drenched in blood clangs metalicly on the blacanny floor. Kaildor's other arms swings up. He begins to pull himself up. His face is red with blood from deep gouges on his face, his trench in tatters, scores along his arms and cheast. Pulling himself upright he straightens his back. A vampire lunges from behind him. The only one to mange to follow him up the towers wall. It raked his back sending blood over the towers edge before it was elbowd down, the wall it had so recently climbed dropping behind it as it fell. Looking at into the room he had entered He saw him him. Extending his arm kaildor pointed...*
05-18-2003, 01:19 AM
((OOS: Scar, three things:
A) "The fools" are all at the very top of the tower. Thus Irvine is somewhere off in outer space.
B) Kvana is nowhere near the tower. What made you think he was?
C) Irvine cannot blend in with magic. It's impossible.
edit: also, your Ulna Shardes post makes no sense, as there's no way your characters could have found Farran's place))
Rwos: In a word - yes. *to Kalidor* Yes, he is the Starkiller. Who are you?
Starr: Cracken...where's Alys?
05-18-2003, 03:36 AM
*The three Drakes finally arrive and land at the base of the palaces stairs. Odin steps foward.*
Odin: It is with indescribable joy that I welcome the Drakes back to Asgard and the rest of our worlds.
I have long anticipated the day when those who guarded the Aesir when when we were young would return.
Lead Drake: Odin, the Allfather of the Aesir. You welcome warms my heart. We to have look forward to the day when we would come home. It only gladdens us further to see how you have prospered. With our return so returns the Futhark. In a couple of days the Futhark will be fully restored.
Now Odin, Allfather of the Aesir, do you still claim to be only 4 milinia old?
Odin: Out of habit. Although I now say over 4 thousand years old.
*The lead drake lets out a booming laugh*
Lead Drake: Does anyone know your true age?
*Odin simles and give a slight shrugg*
Odin: As you bring the Furthark back so do we bring the Order of Aktosh back. It will be fully restored in a couple of days as well.

*Runs at deac, sobbing*
Kaildor: "why?? why did it work for you?? you were only supposed to be a prototype. It was me it should of worked for, why didnt it?? What went wrong for gods sake, TELL ME!!!"
*Begins to pound deacs cheast*
Kaildor: "tell me!!"
Falls into a ball sobbing
Kaildor: They let you keep your mind... but not..mine"

Man: "Farran! It's rather obvious that you'd be here seeing is that your lacky didn't do a good job making a consealed route to here..."

RH Irvine: "Easy there big guy." *suddenly relises the cyborgnetics in Kaldor.* 'What the hell? well, this guy seems a little off his rocker.'
*Deac takes the blade and turns to Kalidor*
Deac: I don't understand...you are a cyborg...why didn't it work for you? And what do I have to do with it?

*Flax falls the first 500m, by then Kvana has dissapeared and Flax exercises his powers to grab hold of the side the the tower, he draws his body to it and then ataches a grapple.*
Flax: I'm getting far too old for this!
*Hal sees the sun turn black, he curses.*
Hal: Well thats it. *Pulls out Comlink.* This is Colonel Flax, withdraw, blockade and burn. Code: 12-D-T-33.

Evacuate the planet? Why? Would the NR really leave billions of innocent civilians at the mercy of vampires? Because there's no sunlight?
Also note the sun isn't entirely black. Like a solar eclipse, there's still some light.))
*At the 'doors' to Farran's sanctuary, nothing moved. The man was answered with nothing but silence*
Rwos: We have to leave. We need to find Kvana and the spellbooks, and destroy them.

*Cracken looks at Starr. Why would he be inquiring about his dau... then it dawned on him. Ah... well, i never expected that happening.... Cracken turned to Starr*
I don't know, but i do believe she's safe. however... *he turns to Rwos* i think he can help locate her.
((OOS: Battle Dog, 2/3 of the Imperial Fleet is in orbit awaiting your go to start evacuating the civilian population))
05-19-2003, 10:39 AM
((OOS: Ummmm....whu? o.O Reality check is in order...
How is the entire population of Coruscant realistically going to evacuated?
Where are the NR/Imperials planning to put the entire population of Coruscant?
What gives the NR the right to drag everyone off planet because the whole planet is in a state of nightfall?
Why would the NR evacuate...after all, Flax may have given up but is it realistic for all the other people in the NR to give up because he did? Why is he giving up anyway? So the sun's blocked out...can NR forces not operate at night? *Baffled*
edit: Not to mention that getting everyone off-planet will throw plenty of vampires into the mix. Now the Jedi can't sense Kvana's type, and while they can sense the effects of the dark power of the other type, Kvana drained most of the vampires of it when he blocked out the sun. Just FYI.
edit edit: Hehe. I'm saying "reality check" in an RPG where my character just magically blocked out the sun. Oh, shut up :p ;)))

A jedi? better make this one count
Spook: THat's the truth, you can check the ships logs, they'll support my story.
Deac: Come on then..we'll get moving
*Deac places a hand on Kalidor's shoulder*
Deac: I remember...you were at the clinic the same time I was? Didn't they tell you? These things still have a low probability of error. I'm sorry. I guess I got lucky. And people respect me because I make them. I'm a victim of syntheitcs, but I make them respect me! Because if I won't, who will!
05-19-2003, 08:50 PM
*At this point Flax climbs to the top of the tower and walks in on the group.*
Flax: You took your time didn't you? *smiles.* Look, I have a situation, we need to get as much of the Civilian population off as possible. However every human will have be checked to make sure they are what they appear to be. Oh, and welcome back.
*Turns to the group.*
We had a contingency plan, the military is already evacuating. We're going to leave as little as possible for the Vampires to live off. When they weaken we finish the job.*
05-19-2003, 09:30 PM
RH Irvine: "I have to ask something. How the hell are you going to fit even half the population of Coruscant onto an entire Imperial Fleet? Are we forgetting that this planet is techically nicknamed an 'Abysial City Planet', along with Nar Shadda, and a few other planets."
05-19-2003, 10:38 PM
((OOS: You don't have to be human to be a vampire, BD))
Rwos: You're going to what?
Gilian: I don't think you understand this situation. Firstly, in all likelihood many vampires have already gotten off this planet and are on their way to other worlds. Especially with the magic they have. Secondly, if you leave they'll leave too. The only thing that needs to stay on this planet is the center of power that is creating the phenomenon blocking out the sun. With a mage like the one they have, getting past your "security" would be child's play. Thirdly, the spell that's blocking out your sun is spreading. Soon more suns are going to go out...we need to stop it now, while it's still small.
Rwos: We're wasting time here. We can be sure Kvana will stay on this planet for a while, at least. We need to find him while we can. *Rwos steps into the window* Coming?
05-20-2003, 12:38 AM
*Greer stepped out of the shadows and into the view of the group.*
Greer: There is one way to evacuate most of the planet, all that is needed is enogh ships. Most of the population, however will have to be lied to. Some people, unfortunately want to see vampires, they do not however, want a first hand expirience of bombs and other things, which makes lying to them easier.
05-20-2003, 12:40 AM
RH Irvine: "I'm game." 'Holy crap. I just noticed, I'm the youngest one in this room...'
*A few levels below, Fused Irvine walks to a stairway. Then a strange voice contacts him, seemingly from nowhere.*
Voice: *Sounding like two Irvines talking.* "Where are you going?"
Fused Irvine: "What does I look like, I'm going to fool around with them."
Voice: "Is that all?"
Fused Irvine: "Maybe."
Voice: "Yes, we'd like you to find out more on those people first..."
Fused Irvine: "What ever, you sound like a nut job as it is..."
05-20-2003, 12:26 PM
((OOS: JM, there really isn't room at the top of the tower for characters to be hiding in the shadows ;)))
05-20-2003, 05:13 PM
Flax: No Vampires have left the planet and none ever will. We will ensure that. Once the service personnal have been evacuated the Planet will be blockaded. Besides, finding the Vampires is easy. *Pulls out a heart monitor and directs it at Gillian* See.
At any rate, should the need arise I'm prepared to destroy the Planet. However I am loathed to do so. That will be our very last resort.
05-20-2003, 06:22 PM
*Cracken nodded, and snapped his com up*
Tojo, you may commence. *he turns to Rwos* The battle here might involve forces that could devestate the planets surface, killing many civilians and innocents. It's wise to get as many off as we can before and during our struggle.
*As if on que, hundreds Transports jumped in to support the fleet of Star Destroyers and 4 Super Star Destroyers. Many of them were large military transports empited of thier ammunition and equipment to help get as many people off of the Imperial Center as possible. They all made was to the planet, where the NR military set up que's of species, checking them all one by one for infection, and letting them on to transports. Imperial star fighters screamed overhead, giving cover and escort to the evacuation ships.*
*Cracken looked at Rwos*
Out the window? excuse me, not all of us here have wings.
05-20-2003, 07:34 PM
RH Irvine: "Oh! I'll take care of that!"
*RH Irvine pulls out the remote, and presses a few buttons, minutes later his ship's cargobay ramp is just outside the window.*
RH Irvine: "All aboard." *Hops onto the ramp and walks up to the cockpit.* ((I hate it when the forums bleep it out))

*After welcoming the Drakes back Odin goes into his palace where he is greeted by a com from one of his Valkyries.*
Valkyrie: Good evening Lord. We have caught a Formorian. Lady Athena has said you were to be given the choice on his fate.
Odin: Please extend my thanks to the Lady for the honor. Has the Fomorian been interogated?
Valkyrie: Yes sire.
Odin: Remove his legs and send them to Tartarus. Otherwise keep him alive for further interogations.
Valkyrie: It shall be done.
Odin: Good luck.
Valkyrie: Good night sire.
Odin: Good night.
*Odin then calls another Valkyrie. After a brief converstation, Odin dispatches some orders*
*In a tower; a little away from the tower that Rwos and the Others were on, Hildr, a valkyrie watches the group through a powerful scope. Her com unit then goes off, answering it...*
Valkyrie: Lord Odin is pulling us out. We have just finished installing the last of the new monitoring equipment.
Hildr: Good. When we will still have eyes and ears when we leave the planet. Did Lord Odin say anything about how we should leave.
Valkyrie: Yes, a small task force is being sent to pick us.
Hildr: Good. I'll continue to watch the tower. Have a ship pick me up here.
Space above Coruscant
*A small Aesirian taks force consisting of the Disen and another destroyer 3 cruisers, and 4 frigates disengages their slipstream drives at the edge of the system. Making a small hyperspace jump the task force arrives at Coruscant. Svafa was on the bridge of her flagship the Disen. Looking out at th evacuation.
Svafa: remain decloaked. I don't want any civilians running into our ships. Launch two transports and have a flight of raptors escort them.
*From the Disen's hangar bay two transports leave and four Raptors. (Raptors are space superiority fighters). The ships fly into Coruscants atmosphere. They fly directly over the tower the group was on. 1 Raptor heads moves away from the transports to pick up Hildr*

*A few warning lights go off. RH Irvine looks at some brief scans automatically made by the ship.*
RH Irvine: "Whoa. Never seen those craft before."
*He saves the 'quick' scans onto a encrypted file on the computer's Hard disk. Then recieves a print out, soon after RH Irvine puts them into a binder, which other recorded craft had been filed.*
RH Irvine: "Just have to look at those some later time. Aw, crap I haven't had a change to look at all of others." *sees the file cabanet is nearly full.* "*Sigh*"

((OOS: I don't remember the NRI being able to destroy a planet...
JM: I intended for the tower to have no way to access to the top except jump or fly but...hey, never mind ^_~ next time I'll try actually telling people this stuff :D))
Gilian: I don't think you heard a word I said, or perhaps you didn't understand it. Listen to me. If you destroy this planet you will be a murderer, as there's no possible way to get every being off of it. As for your strategy...you are dealing with forces you clearly do not comprehend. A blockade would be meaningless. A simple glamour spell, and a hundred vampires could be slipping off-planet right under your nose.
Rwos: It doesn't matter, Gilian. *to Flax* We aren't leaving this planet. We are going to try to end this. All I ask is that you don't interfere in any way.
Starr: We're coming with you.
Rwos: What? Why?
Starr: We need your help. And we aren't letting you out of our sight until you can give it.
Gilian: What makes you think we'll let you? Or give it?
Starr: I know about the other Blade in this dimension. I know what he's been doing.
*Gilian's eyes narrow* I swear---
Rwos: *interrupting* Fine. We don't have time for this. We'll discuss this matter at a more opportune time.
*Gilian's red glider rises into view at the window*
Rwos: Here's your wings, Cracken.
*Rwos looks at Gilian. She looks as if she wants to say something but stops. Wordlessly, she takes out a remote and points it at her glider. Several translucent, glowing disks detach from the underside and float to symmetrical positions around the glider*
Rwos: Do we have a destination?
Gilian: Yes. I ran a scan on the area infested, looking for specific magics that I sensed in those books. Found trace magic all over the place - looks like we have a teleporter - but the oldest traces are all in one place.
*Rwos looks at the others* Deac, Cracken, Starr? I assume you *motioning to Hal, Irvine and Greer* have other plans. *to Kalidor* You may come, if you wish...
Gilian: *mounting the glider* Step on the platforms. They're safe.
05-21-2003, 09:53 AM
RH Irvine: *scratches head.* "Um, didn't I just provided the transportation?"
Deac: Let's go then. We have very little time. The hour is getting late...
05-21-2003, 05:44 PM
Greer: I'll go with you, if you don't mind
05-21-2003, 06:35 PM
Flax: What do you suggest we do? Leave everyone here as we fail miserably to combat these monsters. As to staying and fighting, I don't intend on leaving. However with atitudes like yours we will surley loose.
05-21-2003, 08:59 PM
RH Irvine: *hoping that he wasn't being talked to.* "Well, just that the thought of armoured transport sounded like a good idea at the time..."
05-21-2003, 09:12 PM
*Cracken sets on the disks, and motions to Starr to follow suit.* Not bad, it'll work. just say the word, and we'll follow.
*glares at Irvine* If your trying to make up for the rebellion, you are sorely mistaken. A armored transport will be to noticable.
Let's get moving.
05-21-2003, 09:51 PM
*Rising kaildor drew a small syringe and ingected into his arm. Shudering slightly, he now seemed more focused and alert. Walking after deac, he step out on to a gliding disc.*
There was still alot to ask starkiller
05-21-2003, 11:00 PM
Rwos: I don't mind...
Gilian: *to Greer* I do mind. I've seen enough of your government's bumbling. Besides, what are you going to do besides get in the way? *She glances sideways at Kalidor, as if wondering the same about him. Then she turns to Flax* I suggest you leave the strategy to someone who actually knows something about their situation. Obviously I can't stop you from doing something foolish on your own planet, but if you do the consequences will be on your head.
*Gilian ignites the glider's engines. The disks are moved by an invisible force along with the glider as it begins to descend*

*RH Irvine stands on the ramp of the cargo door, as he remote pilots his ship down along with the disks.*
RH Irvine: *Glaring back at Cracken.* "Listen here old man, believe it or not the only way I even know you is by my name, propaganda, and actual documentary about you. As far as anyother times in my life where I was in physical contact with you, I was far too young to remember." *Turns back at the others.* "Now that I got that off my shoulders, I re-send my offer, becuase definately a ship flying around that appears to be more of a civilain carrying feighter then an actual fighter like mine really is, wouldn't[/i] be as 'noticeable' espcally with this panic, as apposed to 7 or 8 people hovering around on translucent disks."

05-22-2003, 05:23 PM
Flax: You know I'm not sure how you intend to get rid of all these Vampires. We can and will bomb any we find back into Holy Hell. As to net senseing them, you show your own ignorance. A living mind in a dead body is rather obvious.
05-23-2003, 01:24 AM
Gilian: You do not comprehend the forces you are dealing with. I suggest you leave the action to those who do.
*The glider speeds up and flies off*
Rwos: *to Cracken* If I had to make a guess, I'd say we were heading in the direction of one of Coruscant's libraries...I've visited there once or twice myself. *He looks grim at the sight of Orthos' funeral procession*

Twin Irvine Voice: "At least I'm not talking to myself."
*Fused Irvine sees a shattered mirror with a few images of himself, only three pieces he can make out himself...*
*In one piece he sees himself, normaly. He peers into another one, this time a more pieceful and more innocent and confused version of himself. Lastly he looks into a thrid piece, himself but with a snearing twisted grin on his face.*

*Cracken nods* Well, while we're on route, what can you tell me about this dimension rifts, and can you gander a guess on how i survied the explosion of teh Crimson Star II, and based off of that, where is my daughter?

Kioet: So, when and where are we heading to?
*Deac gestures down to Orthos' procession*
Deac: I should be down there. But I will attend his funeral. Rwos, when this is over, I'm going after Reletha. Orthos dying wish was that the Darkstar line end now, and that's what I'm going to do after I've given this b****** the slow death he deserves.
05-23-2003, 08:57 PM
Flax: These Vampires are dealing with forces they do not understand. That Vampire Wizard needs books to block out the sun. I can make it go super-nova with a thought.
05-24-2003, 01:05 AM
((OOS: Whoa. Major red flag. That would quite certainly be godmoding, BD - it's also quite a leap from being able to 'smash two Star Destroyers together'. Flax is a Jedi, not a god (or Aege ;)).
Also, I don't think I quite understand. Scar's character can't vaporize your Knights, yet your character can make a sun go supernova with a thought? o_O
Also Gilian flew away...and you didn't mention Flax following...
btw: I'm also surprised you didn't have Flax call Gilian on her supposed "expertise" on a planet she's ony been on a few weeks ;)))
Rwos: *to Cracken* ...What? Dimensional rifts? You survived the Crimson Star II exploding?
Starr: I was meaning to explain...the other Blade I spoke of. He and another created the Vanguards that I'm sure you've heard of. Cracken and Alys were inside the Crimson Star II fighting them when it exploded.
Rwos: He created the Vanguard?
Starr: Yes...and he incorporated some sort of dimensional teleportation technology. At least, that was what I understood from the thoughts of his I could read. He knew something about a "dimensional disturbance" that occured when the CSII blew up.
Rwos: *realizing* This is how Cracken and Alys survived?
Starr: I thought as much. But...*looks at Cracken* You haven't told me. How did you get back here? And why can I sense Alys like I was sensing you...but you alone have come back?
*Farran, Artemis and a plethora of droids have rapidly gutted Farran's sanctuary. The contents were being loaded into a large, unusually-shaped transport that appeared something like a spider made of rectangular blocks*
Farran: We're leaving here. As fast as possible. To where...well, I don't know that, yet...
05-24-2003, 02:08 AM
*to Starr and Rwos*
it was odd. i could sense Alys, but for some reason, i coullnd't get to her. I awoke in a white enviroment, only to find this little insolent girl, who kept taunting me. Starr can elaborate to you what happens when insolent people taunt me. but that's beside the point. She brought me here, leaving me with only more questions, ones which i thought you *points his finger at Rwos* could answer. Why was i brought back, and not her? how can i find her, and....why am i suddenly "blessed" if you will, with powers beyond the Force?
...were headed in the opposite direction of...
*turns to Gilian* you're headed to one of the minor libraries. turn around and go to the Jedi Archives. It has a larger store of information dating back to the begining of teh Old Republic.
*aside, quietly, in a mild mocking tone* Mr. i know everything about this planet....
05-24-2003, 02:26 PM
((Redwing, the ability to do something and the willingness are two very different things. Flax wouldn't blow up a star for several reasons.
1. The amount of concentration it would take would require weeks of uninterupted meditation.
2. It would most definatly be a dark side act.
3. It would probably kill him.
Sith have been known to destroy stars, it happened in TotJ, I believe.
As to Scar not killing the knights, that was an RPG issue, I'm perfectly happy that it would have been within the bounds of his character's power.
While we're on this, Flax could have killed Sertmor and Vertmor quite easily, all he would have had to do was to force push them agaist a wall and decapitate them. Hal could have used a concussion rifle on the army of vamps. I could have vetoed Kvana's re-activation of the shields. Since the overload causes a blowout and the componants usually have to be replaced, or backups brought on line while they cool down.
At any rate I will be with drawing from this RPG at the earliest oppatunity, since it has just become a mess of god moding, counter godmoding and total codswollop.))
Dissclaimer: I do not exclude my self from the final statement, call me when Deac goes after Reletha and you've gotten rid of all the Vamps and Wizards. Leave that in the fantasy RPG's, this is Star Wars.
[Unfortunatley, I'm inclined to agree. So this is how it's gonna go: After Kvana goes down, no more spellbooks, vampires,mages or AVATARS. Godmoding is gradually swamping a once-simple thread.
I mean, when was the last time we were even on Tatooine? Cantina part 8!]
*Deac sits, waiting to arrive at the location*
05-24-2003, 04:48 PM
((My vamps have the ability to get out of that situation of being thrown at a wall in several ways. and last to my recolection vampires can even move faster then those concussion rifle shots. but it wouldnt matter much, cus after Kvana did the sun block-out spell, they were all weak anyway, accept for Sertmor and Vertmor, whom of course, died afterwards by Vorador's soul inside the Reaver, which Deac now holds.))
*A voice speaks to only Deac, eminating from the Reaver.*
Reaver: "Starkiller, if it does mean it much to you, use me to kill that 'Reletha'. With me I can create the most painful experence in dieing, and during afterwards for the soul itself..."
Fused Irvine: *staring at the broken mirror* "What is this?"
Reflection of himself: *his voice* "Nothing, turn away, and don't listen to them, they are weak."
Reflection of himself snearing: *dual voice* "We are far from weak. We are what can give you powers beyond even a Jedi's comprehension."
Reflection of himself: "Lies!"
Reflection of himself snearing: "Really? How so? We aren't holding you back Irvine, it is you. Allow us to be, and this power we speak of will be yours..."
Reflection of himself in disparation: *Younger voice* "Don't listen to both of them! They both want too much power! We aren't suppposed to be together like this! Don't let it be!"
*Fused Irvine grabs his own head by the temples has his head begind the throb.*
Twin Irvine voice: "YOU KNOW IT TO BE TURE! YOU KNOW! YOU KNOW!! AH HA HA HA HA!! YOU KNOW IT! YES YOU DO!!!"
Fused Irvine: "Aaaaaarrrrrrrrggggggggghhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!"
RH Irvine: *Yelling to the group.* "Hey, there's something very twisted coming fromt hat tower we were in. It's like... Wow, it feels like someone's going nuts over there..."
05-24-2003, 05:03 PM
((A mage is basically a jedi. The same can be said about the Force and Magic. Each are slightly different but in essence the same thing.
I do hope that after this plot line this RPG doesn't revert back to the hackneyed plots. Such as: Oh god this group made another superweapon. Let's hurry and plow through legions of Storm Troopers and blow it up.))
*Hildr stands as the Fighter approaches and eventually hovers by her tower. Opening a hatch she steps in. Greeting the pilot (another Valkyrie), she sits and straps herself in.*
Hidlr: Follow that group until the others are ready to leave
*The hatch closes as the fighter begins pursuit of the group. A fair amount of distance lay between them*
05-24-2003, 08:10 PM
Better hack plots than stupid plots. This RPG has become too convaluted, there are too many characters, too many threads. I've got nothing against Vampires but if they can just appear anywhere using a spell then the whole thing sucks. My idead was withdraw all the military and the affulant and then turn the Capital into an apocaliptic underworld. Our heros must survive in a now practically lawless and decididly hostile world.
The whole storline has turned into a pissing contest.
1. Scar indroduces Vampire.
2. Vampire goes to Coruscant, goes to Library and manages to find what he's looking for despite coming from a planet that neither reads nor speaks basic.
3. Vampire creates dozens of followers in space of hours.
4. Scar tries to turn Jedi.
5. I have to turn Flax into the leader of an acient Vampire hunter's cult, since no-one els has a clue. At this point I'd like to point out that if it wasn't for Flax and Co Vertmor would be ruling the planet and Deac and co would be running scared; since it took so long for Redwing to come up with something.
6. Scar revives tow more Vamps, one controlled by Redwing, in order to bring about an apocalipse.
7. In order for our heros to understand at all who they are up against I bring in the imortal Vampire hunter, and his Vampire Ex, just for interest.
8. Escalating pissing contest.
9. All semblance of plot goes to facilitate said contest.
10. Redwing comes up with blocking out the sun, WTF?
11. Cracken and I try to counter, arse wipping.
12. Even more rediculess pissing.
13. Sun blocked.
14. Flax thrown off a 15km high sky scraper.
15. We can't blockade the planet because they'll just leave through a hole in space.
16. That brings us up to speed.
Now I know I've done some of the pissing but we really should try and keep some sort of grip here.
Oh, Scar, how will a Vampire resist the limitless power of the force holding him to a wall. The only way is to counter it with the force. Since the Vampires are dead flesh they cannot use the force.
Something everbody has lost track of:
The Jedi are the greatest in the universe, at everthing. You cannot better them, some Vampires certainly don't stand a chance, not against a fully trained and pre-pared Jedi Kinght.
If you don't agree with me I suggest you stop using Star Wars as a platform for every "cool" idea you come up with. This applies more to Scar than anyone else. Redwing has an excuse, his characters come from a different dimention.
05-24-2003, 08:38 PM
((Resist equals minor teleportation that I believe that I had specified when I listed some of the abilities that my race of vamps have.
And for the record NOT ALL JEDI ARE PREFECT!! Not only that you're also talking about a Post-Galatic Civil War era, in which the New Jedi Order (which I'm not sure its filly in this RPG or not) was rebuild by Luke, whom wasn't fully trained (I think this one's obvious). Frankly I could care less about being given a history lesson about it.
I based Vertmor on a cross between Anna Rice's vamps and Legacy Of Kain vamps. While a fledgeling vampire would be quite weakend when he turns a human into a vampire, a much, much older one can turn quite a few. That number can vary, due to which ever or not if the Vampire had fed or not between turnings.
The whole turning Jedi into Force Vamps, I dumped. I never got anywhere with it.
And as for Vertmor does or does not speaking Basic, that was never specified in neither c8/c9 or Mrear or Mrear 2. And that goes for the same as any character the came from Mrear.
And yes, I think it is agreed universely that new ideas other then mystical creatures should be in the next 'doomsday'. Fankly I'm attempting so with my very own Fused Irvine becoming a complete nut, who else has something, minus whats going on with Cracken.))

((No offense BD. The Jedi are not the greatest in the universe at everything. They may be one of the leading powers in the universe but they are not the leading power. My Aesir can definetly stand toe to toe with them and do just fine.
Furthermore the Force may be boundless but the Jedi are not. This has been shown so many time in different books even in the movies. To say so is to make you characters demigods.
Hack plots are incredibly stupid. WHat is the fun of doing the same thing 10 times over? What Red did was try to do something new and interesting.
What makes you the expert on Star Wars? Just because you don't like something means it can't be based upon SW?
In the end this really mounts down to you and Scar having a pittyful childish fight))
05-24-2003, 09:43 PM
((And I'm not even trying to argue with him! :animelol: ))
05-24-2003, 10:52 PM
Firstly: I'm not exactly making this up as I go along. The reason I keep doing things so slowly is because A) I'm not the most competent person in the world (;)) and B) I'm trying to avoid godmoding at all costs. And no one else seemed to want to come up with anything. (Except Scar, but...well.)
Redwing, the ability to do something and the willingness are two very different things. Flax wouldn't blow up a star for several reasons...
I'm sorry, then; I took it to be something added to his Roster of Powers. Especially since you said "with a thought". ;)
While we're on this, Flax could have killed Sertmor and Vertmor quite easily, all he would have had to do was to force push them agaist a wall and decapitate them. Hal could have used a concussion rifle on the army of vamps.
I don't know about the former, but I had something planned for the latter. I did alot of planning. Which I get no credit for ;p
I could have vetoed Kvana's re-activation of the shields. Since the overload causes a blowout and the componants usually have to be replaced, or backups brought on line while they cool down.
They didn't necessarily overload; they could have been shut down and reactivated. Besides, as I recall it only happened once (perhaps twice)
Vampire goes to Coruscant, goes to Library and manages to find what he's looking for despite coming from a planet that neither reads nor speaks basic.
The books were not in Basic. I clearly stated that Kvana found the books by sensing them, and via a spell revealed their true content.
At this point I'd like to point out that if it wasn't for Flax and Co Vertmor would be ruling the planet and Deac and co would be running scared; since it took so long for Redwing to come up with something
At the point you've mentioned I believe my characters were running around trying to save Deac/start a subplot with the Shadows. So?
Redwing comes up with blocking out the sun, WTF?
It's new and different, and actually constitutes a threat. You know the good guys are gonna win in the end anyway. Why let them be confident of that?
Flax thrown off a 15km high sky scraper.
Flax wasn't the only one. Besides he could've easily survived. I wasn't trying to insult you by doing that.
We can't blockade the planet because they'll just leave through a hole in space.
So? This sounds like something your characters should be mad about...why are you upset about it?
The Jedi are the greatest in the universe, at everthing. You cannot better them
Then why, unless you're Corran Horn, can the Jedi not defeat everything as soon as it pops into existence? How were the Jedi defeated in the Star Wars movies? Show me where in the Star Wars universe it says that the Jedi rule as gods...
I've got nothing against Vampires but if they can just appear anywhere using a spell then the whole thing sucks.
First, no they can't. Something you forgot, I think, is that vampires cannot enter a living mortal's habitation without being invited in. So no, Kvana cannot teleport anywhere.
As for the the good guys having a hard time, why is this a problem? I generally try to make the Bad Guys more powerful than the Good Guys, so it's more effective when they (the Bad) get their asses kicked. If the Good Guys are the Ultimate Powers in the universe, what's interesting about them winning?
This entire apocalypse was created for four reasons:
A) Deac wanted the group together again.
B) I planned it so that it would be open enough for everyone to create their own material, but so there was a plot left to take place if no one wanted to.
C) Cracken wanted an interesting plotline for his character.
D) Certain people were descending into a pit of boredom back when nothing was happening.
I wasn't making this up as I went along, you know. Although the only person I discussed it with was Admiral, as he has Instant Messenger, and no one else replies to Private Messages :(
Once Kvana is dead, everything he brought with him (spellbooks, etc) will be gone. The spellbooks were there to make Kvana a tangible threat. I wasn't planning to keep this going on forever anyway. Same with my vampires - I wanted them for PtH and Mrear (with the exception of Gilian) not this RPG, at least not forever. Tho you'll have to talk to Scar about his vampires ;)
Tatooine? Well, I do realize the name of this thread is Cantina. Why do you think I was having it rebuilt? ;)))
Rwos: *to Cracken* I have...no idea. However it's very possible you were in another dimension at the time. I don't know who the girl is, but I'll use all my resources to find out what I can...
As for your powers...I, well, I don't know. I can sense them, yet I don't know what exactly they are. I sense them in the same way I can sense magic, but it's definitely not magic. But I am completely Force-blind, so it can't exactly be the Force...
Gilian: *to Cracken* Be quiet. I'm heading to where the spellbooks rested. I don't know or care if it's even a library. *grumbles* The people in this galaxy...
*The glider lands. Sure enough it's in front of a library*
Gilian: The traces are in here.
*She walks into the library. It is empty except for a few droids*
Rwos: This is one of Coruscant's largest libraries. But until the vampires showed up, there wasn't any magic active in this dimension. How could magic spellbooks have ended up here?
*A voice comes from a balcony* A very good question.
*The group looks up to see a demon in a tattered cloak just above them. Only his face was visible through the hood. It was heavily scarred, and beige-toned. Besides that it appeared almost human. Almost*
Demon: Hello, champions. Aren't you going to ask me who I am?
edited because "Messages" does not start with an "N"
05-25-2003, 01:07 AM
I would, but that would require me leveling the building.
So, i guess the old fashion way would work. Who are you, and why are you in my way?
05-25-2003, 01:36 AM
Demon: I am Sejhan. And I must correct you; I am not in your way, I am here to...well, to kill you.
Gilian: I tremble in fear. I guess we'll just have to kill you first, then? *She extends her arm and hurls several throwing stars. The stars pass through the demon as if he were made of smoke*
Sejhan: One thing: I am, unfortunately, immaterial. However, they are not.
*A portal opens behind the demon. A tall, blue-green gargoyle with white hair steps out. Rwos immediately recognizes him*
*The gargoyle makes no answer. His face is terrifyingly blank and unresponsive. He carries himself as if he were sleepwalking*
Gilian: This is some kind of joke...right?
Another figure steps out of the portal, and it closes. The man's clothing looked oddly 18th-century Earth-ish, with a coat of armor of unusual make covering it. He carries a strange crossbow and a sword*
Man: Who are these? They are not my quarry...
Sejhan: No, but she *pointing to Gilian* Is a vampire. Those two *pointing to Cracken and Starr* Are Sith. And he *pointing to Rwos* Holds the information that you need to carry out your precious vengeance. All you need to do is subdue the others long enough for us to get it from him.
Rwos: *Startled* It's him. It's the "hunter" from the Shadow's ship...
*Beside him, Gilian looks shocked*
Him! But...that's impossible! ...how?
*Farran's ship lifts up and ignites its engines. A cloak descends over it's exterior and the ship shoots out of the atmosphere, leaving the old lives of Farran and Artemis burning up with the capital city of Ulna Shardes.
Farran stares out of a window at the receding planet*
The second time this has happened to me. Leaving an old life behind for a new. I don't know where I'm going to go...but then again, I didn't last time, either?
05-25-2003, 01:58 AM
Kioet: That planet sucked anyways.
05-25-2003, 02:23 AM
*Greer stopped the veichle, took out his sword and blaster, and quietly sneaked into the library. Once at the entrance, he hid and saw the gargoyle and hunter step out of the portal. He sighed, it was going to be one of those days again.*
Greer: Managed to get yourself into trouble not 15 minutes since we parted.
05-25-2003, 02:55 AM
((OOS: JM, they're inside a library ^_~
Maybe "balcony" was the wrong word. But I can't think of the right one ^^;; ))
05-25-2003, 03:30 AM
*Cracken sneers* Oh, i'm much more than a Sith Lord now...
*Cracken draws his lightfoil out, ignites it, and points to the man in the 18th century style armor*
To get you vengence, and your bounty, you must go through ME!
*Cracken dissapears with a flash, only to re-appear behind the stunned man, and slashes down.*
05-25-2003, 04:31 AM
((OOS: No reaction description, Cracken.
Also his clothes are 18th century style. Ish. His armor isn't ^.^))
*The man dodges, inhumanly quick*
Man: What you are matters not. *He fires a glowing net at Cracken, distracting him for a moment, and leaps from the balcony down to the ground level*
Gilian: *staring* Cyrus Duncan. How...
Duncan: Enelya. The Angel Scourge. Isn't that what they called you? What are you doing here?
Gilian: I'm not... *Duncan fires his crossbow at her. In an instant, her sword is out, blocking the green-glowing bolt. The bolt flies into the wall, burning a hole there*
Duncan: You're a Blade as well...how interesting. I was told the Blades were warriors for good and justice. I remember you used take such delight in killing those who stood for such things...
Gilian: And I remember you used to work with men.
*Anger shows on the man's face. He shoots at Gilian again. She dodges*
Rwos: Stop this. Who are you?
Starr: Whoever he is, he's dead.
05-25-2003, 04:38 AM
*The highly sophisticated communications equipment in the fighter Hildr listens in on the converstation. The mention of the Sith had her slightly concerned. She was tempted to call in an airstrike but decided to wait to see how things played out. Besides she needed more information*
05-25-2003, 06:10 AM
*Farran startles, hearing Kioet behind him. Then he smiles*
Farran: Well, I'm not losing everything from that life, at least...and I'm not being chased away this time. *seeing that Kioet has no idea what he's talking about* About your suit. I don't know how well I can fix it, but it should be back in good condition at least, if not full power. At least for the moment. I wonder what will happen to the Vanguard now that no one's around to control them, or make more...
*The ship prepares to enter warp-space. The engine begins powering up...
Then, suddenly, the ship jolts, and the engine glow dims*
Farran: What's happening?
Artemis: *showing a view of the outside of the ship - with several smaller craft surrounding it* We have a problem! And company, it seems...
Farran: What? This is - or was - a top-of-the-line cloaking device. Who are they?
Artemis: They couldn't be...
Farran: *finishes* No, not Blades. But who?
Artemis: They're...they're hailing us.
*A holographic image of a tall woman in a business suit appears on a platform in the center of the deck* Greetings, Ariel Kasen. Or is it Farran Darkholme now?
05-25-2003, 08:34 PM
Kioet: mmm...new armor....
05-25-2003, 09:01 PM
Redwing, guys, sorry, too little sleep. Redwing, thanks for clearing that up.
My basic problem is that Scar is trying to raise his Vamps to a level above the average Jedi. No they are not Gods, no they are not invincible. However, they are incredibly powerful, they certainly represent the top end of power.
Scar has his Vamps running slightly faster, jumping slightly higher, I'm sorry but it doesn't cut it.
Something I should have mentioned, which I honestly thought I had.
Flax was not trained under Skywalker, he was trained by his father after the fall of the Republic, so was Sophae, which is how they first knew each other. Later Flax' parents were killed when he went off to join the Alliance 1 BBY, he was trusted enough that he was allowed to fly his Headhunter to the rally point.
The shuttle was attacked by GTs and Hal forght them off. For this he earned imidiate promotion to Flt Officer and activation in Red Squadron.
Sophae initiated a romantic relationship with Flax after he saved her life, they were married in the celebrations after Yavin, Flax was promoted to Captain and made Red XO under Farlander. Hal was born durring the evacuation of Hoth.
When Farlander left, after the establishment of Echo Base Flax was made Red CO. Since Wedge got the slot at Endor Flax took a position as turret gunner on the Falcon.
After Endor Flax was made Wing CO and after the first treaty with the Empire he was made CAG of the entire Second Fleet.
This is the position he currently fills.
Got off track there, however, the point is the Flax is a true Jedi, rather than a New Jedi.
05-25-2003, 09:10 PM
((OK, edited my post to make sense))
*Greer saw the fight between Duncan and quickly jumped out and shot twice at duncan and quickly brought up his sword in a defensive position*
05-25-2003, 09:15 PM
((Yes, but show me where EXACTLY that tells where and what spots a vampire's maximum abilties are? What do I have to base on if I don't have any hard guide lines? Under this explanation, I have to second guess myself to what I orignally thought how powerful a vampire would be, not only that, if they are as powerful as you say they would be. They'd be a decent match agenst a jedi, in a few numbers. How ever! I made the rule about the age of the vampire early on that depending on the age of the vampire, his 'gifts', 'powers' and 'natural abilties' would increase, over time.
Vertmor Sertmor are brothers, even when human. They are at the same level, how ever they are still VERY VERY old vampire. Not 300-400 year old ones. I'm talking about 4-5 thousand year old vamps. Vorador is about 8-9 thousand, but which can't be really recorded since he's trapped inside a sword...
Their age's even though I haven't clearly thought of an appropreate age for them yet. But this also goes back to Mrear 2, cus Vertmor, Sertmor AND YES Kvana will somewhere die, and be held by Spectures for nearly an eternity til c9))
05-25-2003, 09:58 PM
((OOS: That's alright @ BD. And no, I didn't realize that bit about Flax. Don't think it was ever mentioned. Curious: did you create your character for purposes other than this RPG? Most of mine were, and I'm kind of getting that vibe off of Sophae and Flax. ^_^
However, I must disagree that Jedi have to represent the top end of power. :) After all, a central theme of this RPG has been the Avatars, and they are certainly more powerful than your average Jedi.
And in the NJO, Vong clearly are more powerful than your average Jedi.
I guess my point is, since this RPG isn't based on Jedi, people should have the freedom to create new players that can match or overpower Jedi. I think we've stayed in acceptable parameters - i.e. Admiral's Aesir come from outside the outer regions, all the vampires come from millennia in the past (perhaps before the Force existed), most of my characters come from another dimension, the Avatars are from higher planes of existence, and everything else (such as the Vanguard) can be chalked up to new technology. :)
Scar: I don't understand why you're arguing, as since you killed all your oldest vampires it's irrelevant now ;)))
05-25-2003, 10:50 PM
((It's for the mere fact that I still play with those characters...))
*A crimson saber ignites from behind Duncan.*
RH Irvine: *In a readied stance* "I'd advise you to stop."
05-25-2003, 10:59 PM
Drawing his pistols and aiming at the newly appered gargole
Kaildor: Hold it there
05-26-2003, 04:15 AM
*Cracken teleports between Irvine and Duncan, and round houses Duncan to the head. WHAT IN THE HELL!? He dodged it!!!!!!!! Cracken crated a force push that extended 10 ft up, and 10 ft sideways, in hoeps he could knock the guy off his feet for a few seconds. He turns to Irvine.*
You and Starr go help Gilian find what she needs. The rest of us will stay here. Go! NOW!
Gilian! you'd better get your other dimensional ass in gear! Rwos, take down your buddy thing.... whatever...
*Sneers at Duncan. Something was odd about this guy. he couldn't place it, but it wasn't the Force... something... else...*
You don't hear very well, do you buddy. you have to go through.. ME!
*Using the force, and his new powers, he accelerates quicker than any one before him, and slashes down at Duncan*
05-26-2003, 06:07 AM
((OOS: JM, I'm assuming Greer doesn't have any extranormal powers. If he does, tell me and I'll edit. [Because I assume he was farther away than RH Irvine, who couldn't have avoided getting hit] If he doesn't, his hands should be numbed but he won't be injured.
Scar: Up to you where exactly Irvine got hit.))
Gilian: ...Very well. Let's go! *Starr joins the vampire as she runs from the room, following the "scent" of the books*
*Duncan dodges Cracken's blow again. He turns to Irvine and fires point-blank at his chest. Irvine's saber clips the bolt, but it still hits.
Duncan begins to sidestep away, moving faster than humanly possible. As Cracken pursues him, he turns his crossbow on the nearest person - Greer - and fires. The glowing bolt hits and knocks the sword from his hands.
Another two bolts are sent at Gilian and Starr. The bolt clips the fleeing vampire in the back, but her body armor protects her. Starr is hit in the arm. Stunned, he looks at the neat hole in his flesh, not feeling a thing as the green "fire" around the bolt had numbed it somehow. His arm is immobile.
I should have sensed that...what is that man?
Another bolt is sent at Kalidor.
Two more bolts are fired at Deac.
All this happened in the space of about three seconds.
Sejhan stands watching above, K'Warra next to him.*
Sejhan: When he subdues them...you know what to do.
*K'Warra's eyes twitch*
05-26-2003, 10:32 AM
Kaildors processer saw the bolt coming and screamed at his body to move. turning, kaildor manged to dodge the bolt from hitting his cheast but his sholder was struck instead.drawing the bolt out he looked at the dent in his arm, his cyborg frame had prevented it damginig anything or even gong through the arm. Snarling he holstered his pistols, drew a glowing sword and ran at duncan
*Deac has just enough time to say "K'warra? How many times is it now?" before the bolts hit him in the chest, shunting him into the nearest wall. He looks up*
Deac: You'll regret that.
*Deac force leaps into the air and ignites his sabers as he moves swiftly down...*
05-26-2003, 11:12 AM
*RH Irvine attempts to deflect the bolt, and he just barely manages to clip it. He falls, the saber deactivates. He pauses for a few seconds, eyes closed. Then he rolls slightly back, to roll back to his feet, in a croutching stance. He stands, still eyes closed, a wound dead center on his chest, blood staining his robes. He opens his eyes to a glare as the wound closes.*
Master Hojo'Din: "Are you really that certain that you should train the boy? Haven't you seen what heppened when he got angry?"
Master Chi'Din: "It not that, the training will help him control himself. Besides I heard from one of the adults supervising the inccident, that the child deeply regrets in doing so. And I sense from the boy it is true. I looked into the matter that he's ususaly sub-conscious even about the little matters. He is quite politie."
Master Hojo'Din: "You'd understand with something like this, it will improve on his techique if he does become angry."
Master Chi'Din: "He really looks forward in starting the traininig. In time his sense of duty will help him control himself, just incase he does."
Master Hojo'Din: "Very well then. It's your ass." *smiling while walking away*
*Standing behind a corner, listening was a young red-headed child. He bolt out down the hall away from the corner, jumping and feeling happy with the little secretive game he played.*
*Parts of the walls and ceiling begin to crack. But nothing more. RH Irvine shakes his head, while force pulling his saber back.*
RH Irvine: "Starr, let's get out of here..."
05-26-2003, 02:10 PM
*Once the shot knocks the sword out of his hands Greer quickly takes cover behind a pillar, and shoots out of one side at Duncan*
05-26-2003, 02:43 PM
*Cracken blinks, dumbfounded, and regains his composure.*
Nice, you have good form, now, let's dance! *He glares at Irvine* Boy, get moving!
*Cracken looks at Duncan, and begins his attack, he teleports behind duncan, swings, teleports again, attacks from a different angle. slow at first, he picks up speed as he gets more comfortable with it, and soon, it's nothing more than a blur.*
05-26-2003, 06:28 PM
((I think that generally the new characters have stayed exceptable, however my gripe was with Vermor and Sertmor, the way Scar would keep upping the power every time I countered got stupid. I don't mean that new characters shouldn't be more powerful than the average Jedi, however lines like "Barely faster than the fastest force runner" are clearly meant to place Vamps above all Jedi, had the line been "Almost as fast as the fastest force runner" or even "as fast" I wouldn't really be bothered.
As to Flax, I was writing a NJO book called *searches through dusty hardrive.* Starfighter Command I: Hard Arm.
The Working title refers to an operation the crew will undertake in later chapters hat never got written. It needs a lot of work, however, here is the opening paragraph:
General Taklin Flax looked out of the internal view port at the DefianceII’s main fighter bay. He ran his fingers through his bristling crew cut, his brown eyes taking in the busy confusion that always presided a combat mission. Flax was the commander of Red squadron and in-fact all squadrons in the DefianceII task force. The General allowed himself a small smile; today we will show the Admirals and bureaucrats that rebuilding Red squadron has been a worthwhile use of state funds.
“Sir?” The voice brought Flax out of his contemplations.
He turned around “Yes ensign?” Flax looked the man over. He was slightly below average height with a slim build and a nervous disposition.
The man saluted “Your ship is ready sir.”
Flax returned the salute “Thank you ensign.” The young man saluted again, turned smartly to his left and marched away. Flax shook his head and sighed, then he picked up his helmet and left the control room.
05-27-2003, 02:51 AM
((Ahhh. I see your problem with that - it implies that even if a Jedi had powers like no Jedi before him/her, then according to the "Rules" that would make the vampire just faster. I misunderstood what you were upset about ;)
As for my characters, with the exception of say, Starr, Misae, and a few others, my characters were created for my own (as yet unwritten) story, designed for comicbooks))
*Duncan dodges the blows and blaster bolts sent at him easily. He stops Kalidor's charge with several more bolts, temporarily shorting out the cyborg's components. He continues to evade Cracken's attacks, although the Sith lord had now outstripped his speed. Duncan was out of range before Cracken could get there, as if knowing ahead of time from where the hit would come*
Duncan: You're fast, Sith, but not fast enough.
*Rwos takes out what could be throwing stars, except shaped more like axe blades. He throws them at the hunter. The blades illuminate as they fly, actively chasing Duncan as he dodges*
Duncan: Creative weapon you have there, Blade. *He fires his crossbow at the blades. They explode on contact* But I would have thought one of you could do better.
05-27-2003, 03:22 AM
*Cracken crouched, amazed, dumbfounded, but most of all, humiliated, and angry. No one could have dodged that, no matter what. Yet he did, as if he knew where he was going to strike.
Well, I haven't had to use everything i had in quite awhile.
Gritting his teeth, he bowed his head, and concentrated. Dark energies swirled about him, filling him, consuming him. The building started to shake a bit as he stood up, with a dark glow about him. He opened his eyes, and looked at Duncan. His eyes where errily completly black.
Suddenly, he burst forward with such speed, the very ground tore up behind him. He cought up with Duncan, and screamed*
FIGHT ME LIKE A MAN YOU COWARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
*Using Sith powers not used for years, he attacked Duncan with a furry like none other.*
((OOS: Before anyone makes an argument, this is Dark Rage. it's a power in JKII:JO that dark jedi and sith a like can use to make themselves faster, and stronger. Because Cracken has a wierd sorta magic use, he can make it even better than those before.))
05-27-2003, 09:37 AM
((Yeah, Irvine was about to, but shruged it off.))
*Irvine walks off towards the book section of the library, keeping an eye on Cracken. He couldn't help but to root his father on. almost effected by the burst of dark energies from cracken.*
05-27-2003, 03:19 PM
*Greer decides that the blasters won't work, he quickly launches himself at Duncan, hoping to distract him and help the others finish him*
*Deac moves down above Duncan, narrowly missing him. He spins, aiming for the crossbow with every swipe*
Deac: You move quickly, but you shall falter....
*Sees Cracken do the dark rage. Part of the effect is that it harms lightsiders*
Deac: Oh...hell....feeling weak...weaker...Cracken...stop...you're...slowing me...
05-27-2003, 06:00 PM
*Flax comes to the conclusion that he should be fighting, he cracks his knuckles then activates his saber.*
Flax: Now lets see.... Ah! *Swings at Duncan's midsection.*
05-27-2003, 08:26 PM
((OOS: Scar, Irvine and STarr are supposed to be escorting Gillian to find what she needs, so we can get the hell out of there. Just an FYI))
05-28-2003, 12:21 AM
((It's not that Irvine is mortaly wounded. just that the bolt is still lodged in side his chest somewhere. He got pissed, so when he healed himself, he forgot to force the bolt out ^_~
that is if these are physical bolts we are talking about here, and not energy weapons.
And I think I made it obvious that Irvine WANTS those two on his ship. And not flying around in the open as an open target. No offence to anyone, but you'd think that a ship flying around while there is a crap load of evacuations going on, would be less noticable then a group of individuals on flying disks...))
05-28-2003, 12:42 AM
((That may be true, however seeing how they have reached their destination, going to a ship without achieving their objective is pointless....))
*Hildr sat and listened to the fight going on in the library. She was waiting for her comrades to finish. Hildr was ready to go home*
*Odin was on a com unit talking to Skadi*
Odin: She is still plagued by the dreams?
Skadi: Yes. we will be there shortly. Hopefully the Norns can help her.
05-28-2003, 04:55 AM
((OOS: Flax wasn't with the group, BD. I'll assume he just got there :)
Scar: Obviously our characters don't agree...besides Gilian does have a cloak for her glider (and disks), she just didn't use it.
You also missed the point of what Cracken said. Starr and Gilian are in another room. Remember how the books were in a storage room? So your post about Irvine leading Starr to his ship couldn't have possibly happened.))
Duncan: Ah, a Jedi...so the law has arrived?
*He casually shoots down Greer, knocking the man unconscious with a wounded shoulder. He turns in Cracken's direction*
Duncan: How amusing. One of you calling a man a coward? *dodging Cracken's Dark Rage attacks* A Sith's rage...so you really are the same as the others.
*Noticing Deac is being weakened by Cracken's strange power, Duncan fires several immobilizing bolts into his side.
Rwos tries to move to help his friend. But something invisible weighs down on him, slowing his footsteps. He finds it harder and harder to move...
Suddenly, with a measure of shock, he realizes.*
Starr: *holding his injured arm* What are you looking for?
Gilian: A scent. *The device she hols reads "Tracing" then switches to "Found". A topographical map of what was clearly Coruscant buildings comes up on display*
05-28-2003, 09:24 AM
((Fine that scene can come up afterwards ^_^))
Irvine: *running up to starr and gillian.* "Come on, we have to go, now"
Reaver: *to deac telepathically* <'Having trouble moving?'>
*The skulls on the handle glow, as an unwillingly hand of deac's drops a lightsaber and clenches down on the handle of the Reaver. Small bits of magical energies enter Deac's body, allowing him to move more freely, minus the infinite grip on the Reaver itself.*
Reaver: *to deac telepathically* <'One strike should be enough to weaken him. I should be able to drain a little bit of his blood more effeciently then I was in my previous form.'>
*Deac turns to look at the strange sword hung over his back*
Deac: Never thought to use you
*Deac deactivates his lightsabers moves toward Duncan*
But I don't trust you
*Tries to let go. Fails*
Guess I have to.
*Charges toward Duncan*

*At this point Drago arrives, with Lelan slung over one shoulder and a blaster carbine on the other.*
Drago: My Lord, catch!
*Drago tosses Flax his Blaster, Flax advances, blaster in one hand saber in the other.*
Flax: You have exactly two seconds to give me a reason to cause GBH.
*Drago makes a bee-line for the door.*
((In case no-one noticed Lelan is once again human and so is Drago, and quite frankly he was looking foward to retiring and buying a farm.))
05-28-2003, 09:52 PM
((BD: What is GBH?))

*Cracken continues his onslaught, now fully enraged that he couldn't hit Duncan.*
Duncan: How amusing. One of you calling a man a coward?
*Duncan round houses Cracken at inhumane speeds, knocking him to the floor, sending him sprawling.*
Duncan: A Sith's rage...so you really are the same as the others.
*He's...taunting...me.... that... insolent........*
*Cracken began yelling at the top of his lungs. He began to draw as much energy to him as possible. The buildings' foundation shook wildly, threatening to bring down the ceiling. He slowly stood up, on hand behind his back. The energies he continued to draw into himself created a wind around him, swirling his hair. Cracks grew in the floor around him. He didn't care about the damned vampires or the blackness threatening the galaxy. He just wanted Duncan DEAD.*
*With that, he threw from behind his back a small over powered Ultima ball, primed to take out 3 city blocks. With that final outburst, his body gave out, and as he hit the floor, he thought At least he's dead...*
05-29-2003, 05:21 AM
((OOS: FYI everyone that Cracken and I are cooperating in this instance, in case the acceptance of character controlling is confusing you ^_~
Admiral: Grevious Bodily Harm, I believe))
*If Cracken had stayed conscious another second, he would have seen he had not hit the floor. He would have seen that the world had pulled away from underneath him at the last moment and dissolved into whiteness. He would have also seen a certain little girl looking at him with a disapproving stare.
The others in the library saw him fade away.
Another circumstance that occured purely by chance was that the Ultima blast saved Drago's life. Duncan had had his crossbow sights trained on the back of the man's head when the blast came.
Duncan promptly lowers his crossbow and swings his sword in a parabolic arc. A ring of energy forms catching the Ultima blast. Duncan seems surprised at this result, even more so when the Ultima begins absorbing the energy into itself.
Duncan swings his sword and hurls the blast into the ceiling, completely dissolving it. A wind is created that blows everyone backwards from the center of the blast effect.
Duncan looks at the floor where Cracken had been*
Duncan: He was the fool.
*Without turning around, he points his crossbow behind his back and rapidly fires bolts at Deac and Flax, the only two left standing.
Rwos finds himself now completely unable to move.*
Gilian: We have our next destination. We have to leave, now!
Starr: *wincing* Can't you use one of those 'teleporters' you otherdimensional beings constantly seem to have?
Gilian: I don't have one on me...Rwos does. Besides, the others...
05-29-2003, 05:29 AM
((Red: Thank you. I never heard that before.
BD: Should that line have a "not" in it. As in a reason not to cause...))
05-29-2003, 10:00 AM
Irvine: *speaking what he sensed* "Father's gone. He created a powerful ball of energy, I think he drained too much of himself into it."
*The small room's foundation begins to crack.*
*A small bit away, the Fused Irvine is more calm. He stands, arms at his side.*
Fused Irvine: *twin voice* "Yes, Yeeeeesssssss! Those two are too weak for themselves! Ha!"
*He senses what is going on, he expresion changes from a pleased to a snarl. He jumps out the window, and flys towards to library in a crazed anger.*
05-29-2003, 03:04 PM
*Greer regains conciousness, tries to move the arm in which the bolt hit, but could only move it weakly*
Greer: That's gonna leave a scar.
*Greer picks up his sword with his good arm and tosses it at Duncan, hoping to cause the bolts to miss*
Deac: You're good. Really good. Tell me. How fast can you dodge? No matter. I'll find out.
*Deac goes into force speed, extends the Reaver and force jumps around the room, moving gradually toward Duncan*
05-29-2003, 06:19 PM
((Amiral, yes the lack of not was a typo. *Gets confused, checks sentance.* Yeah.))
*Flax sees the bolt, he force jumps and sumersults, bringing his saber up defensive and drawing the force around himself.*
Drago: Sod this!
05-29-2003, 11:26 PM
((OOS: Scar, how are we supposed to believe RH Irvine is a "true Jedi" when he keeps coming with all these completely random (and very wrong) things? ;p))
Starr: DAMN! Not again!
*The two run from the room*
*Duncan knocks Greer's sword away with his own. He looks at Deac and Flax.
As the two leap towards him using the Force to aid them, Duncan rapid-fires two bolts in the air, aiming where the two Jedi were headed. The bolts squarely hit both Jedi and knock them to the floor, the bolts' fires numbing and immobilizing them*
The faster you choose to move, the less able you are to stop...
*Duncan is about to say something aloud when Starr and Gilian burst in the room*
Duncan: Back again?
Starr: You will DIE, fiend!
*He ignites his crimson lightsaber and rushes at Duncan in a rage. Instead of dodging, Duncan brings his sword to catch onto the lightsaber. The two blades stick together as if held by powerful magnets. Before Starr could react to this unexpected development, Duncan had forced his arms aside and fired point-blank in his chest.
The Sith flies backwards, violently smashing into the wall. The impact knocks him unconscious, and he slumps down, the green-burning bolt stuck in his chest armor. Duncan turns to face Gilian, but makes no move to attack*
Sejhan: Now, K'Warra.
*K'Warra levitates upwards mechanically. He flies over the railing and lands in front of Rwos. The two begin glowing, a link of energy streaming between them*
Gilian: What in seven hells...NO!
*She rushes towards them. In an instant, Duncan is in front of her, blocking her with his sword, an impassable barrier*
Gilian: What are you doing? Duncan...you, you were always one of the humans out for justice! If you let this happen you'll be nothing but a murderer!
Duncan: Appealing to my moral code? How amusing. Especially for a vampire, not to mention one so vicious as yourself...
Gilian: I'm NOT that anymore!
*Before she can move, Duncan's hand goes down to his waist and back up again, smashing a flask in her face. Gilian vamps out and reels back in pain, clutching her burning face, wiping off the liquid that had been splashed there*
Duncan: Somehow things seem just the same to me.
*K'Warra and Rwos rise into the air.
Rwos, unable to move, can feel K'Warra's mind extend into his. He could feel that the gargoyle was only half-aware of what he was doing...
He slams up his mental shields, but something was wrong. Something was rising inside him. Little dark shards being brought together into...*
The remnants of the Darkstar! Whatever it left inside of me when it possessed me...K'Warra is using it to form a pathway into my...
*K'Warra raises his hands. He turns translucent, skin appearing chrome instead of blue-green as if he was transforming into faded liquid metal. He stretches out two of his fingers and plunges them into Rwos' eyes*
*Rwos screams in agony, and the room is wiped in a burst of brilliance. Chrome snakes of energy run up K'Warra's arm, piercing Rwos' head and run back out, leaving no physical mark but causing enormous pain. The flow runs back and forth, engulfing both figures.
Then suddenly the brilliant energy is sucked back away into K'Warra. He levitates stiffly back to the floor. Rwos drops like a rag doll to the ground.
Sejhan: Did you find it?
K'Warra: *mechanically* Yes. It was exactly as you said.
*He extends his arm. A spinning vortex appears, images projecting from it. An image of Gerd, Rwos and Odin appears more brightly illuminated from the bunch*
Sejhan: Good. Then it's confirmed. *The portal behind him reopens. K'Warra levitates upwards and passes through it. Duncan, crossbow trained on Gilian, ascends the stairs and follows. The portal closes behind him*
Sejhan: *looking down at the unconcious bodies around the room, and Gilian standing in the middle of the room looking lost and horrified* Have a nice day.
*The demon turns and walks into the wall, fading out as he does so*
05-30-2003, 12:32 AM
*Greer stands up weakly*
Greer: Anyone care to explain what the hell was that?
05-30-2003, 03:21 AM
*Cracken opens his eyes, only to see glaring white. He cringes, and tries to move. He can't. He curses, and tries to use his magical prowess to heal himself.
He curses some more, and uses the tried and true Force not to heal, but to make himself at least sit up. His slowly sits up, pain coming from every movement he makes.
That basterd better have died from that, he thought. now upright, he slowly opens his eyes, only to see he was back in the white room.
With that pitiful child. Damn.
Slowly, as if he just woke up, he speaks*
Damnit, why am I back here. And you'd better stop answering in riddles or so help me, I will kill you too.
*He rubbed his head, the headache just began to subside. Barely.*
05-30-2003, 04:10 AM
*The girl smiles*
Girl: I warned you you wouldn't be able to stop it. Why did you try?
*She folds her arms* You could have killed yourself. You overextended your powers and, shall we say, "tripped" on them. *haughtily* You should be thanking me.
05-30-2003, 05:28 AM
Hildr: With so many people, they failed to do anything to stop those unknowns.
They are incredibly inept or something else....
*Deac regains consciousness and runs to Rwos*
Deac: Rwos...what just happened.
*Deac can then almost see a trail of evil leading away from Rwos.*
The Darkstar. I didn't know...he stole it!
05-30-2003, 09:23 PM
((Redwing, you Godmoded there, Flax wouldn't have jumped, he would have deflected a bolt back at Duncan, however I'll let it slide. I reserve the right to control your character at a later date.))
*Flax levers himslef up.*
Flax: By the Force! We're getting too old for this.
05-30-2003, 10:06 PM
((Actually this whole thing is exactly what Deac and I were talking about, we still have to deal with the damm Vamps and now we have to deal with the theft of the Darkstar by another supernatural Demon and a Holtz clone. Unless you come up with a way to clense Coruscant of Vamps sharpish I'm writing off the planet. I'll bombard with Stronium90 Clad Thermonukes.
This will leave the planet totally uninhabitable for at least a couple of eons, it'll also flatten the entire crust.))
05-31-2003, 02:36 AM
((BD: Settle down. Red isn't just making this up as he goes (I know we have talked about this). Don't expect a instant solution, but one will be in the future....))
[Ok, here's how it goes. From Cantina Part 11, there will be no more vampires, demons or avatars. We can start an entirely new story arc]
05-31-2003, 02:31 PM
((I realise he's not making it up, however, he had better come up with a solution to the Vampires before we go off on another mission, or else I'll come up with one for him.
I will nuke the capital of the galaxy in order to save the inhabitants of the galaxy.))
05-31-2003, 04:06 PM
((OOS: Lightsabers can't defend every inch of the body, and the bolt's fire had a magical propety that temporarily immobilizes an opponent. And Flax was wearing armor that would have acted as a conductor. If he was hit anywhere - and Duncan wasn't aiming at a vital area - he would've been zapped. Starr was stunned unconscious and he was only wearing light armor.
If anything stunning Deac is iffier, because I can't really be sure if his armor would conduct the fire up from wherever it it to his cyborg-brain. Since I don't know what the heck else he's got in his robo-body :animelol:
And: You won't necessarily have to fight Duncan again. The whole purpose of this was to brain suck Rwos.
But you did get one thing right. Duncan is a Holtz clone. I'm surprised you got the references "Somehow things seem just the same to me" and the entire PtH scene.*gives BD a jar of cookies* :D
There will be another reference that you'll probably catch - if you know who Connor is - later on. ;)
One last thing: The Darkstar has not been stolen. A long time ago the Darkstar possessed Rwos, and Rwos allowed it to take full control of his mind (he thought he would be able to save Deac and Corzip [you don't know him]) My idea was that the Darkstar left a few traces of itself in Rwos' mind, and K'Warra used those to get past his mental defenses.
One (more) last thing: If you think I don't have a solution to these weird plot twists I've introduced (i.e. vampires) email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll email you back explaining. Cluttering up the RPG with idle threats (you'll destroy Coruscant to rid it of a few square kilometers of vampires? and the other Jedi would allow it? right) aren't the best thing. Thanks.
Oh one last thing - *kicks Deac* we've already been over this, you silly. I told you I'm getting rid of this stuff when this storyarc ends remember? ;)))
*Rwos groans, barely moving* No...didn't steal Darkstar...used...its...pieces...
Gilian: Rwos! *she rushes to his side* You're not...you're not dead!
*Starr wakes up. He pulls the now dim bolt out of his chest, wincing in pain*
Starr: What the hell was that?
Gilian: We have to get out of here. Prepare for when that bastard comes back. I want him dead.
Rwos: ...Won't be...back...
*Rwos struggles to speak further* They got...what...they wanted.
*Rwos' eyes close. He drops off into unconsciousness*
05-31-2003, 09:56 PM
*As soon as he arrives, Fused Irvine conseals his presence, which now should be felt as a very erractic and demented version of its previous self.*
Fused Irvine: 'They are gone. But our toys are still here. I'll wait.'
05-31-2003, 10:32 PM
((Well, okay. Just a few things.
Flax isn't wearing armor, the armor was to scare Kvana and for when Flax addressed the troops. From a practical point of view it's far too much of an incumberment. I thought I made that clear.
Flax wouldn't Nuke Coruscant, the Senate defence commity would. Remember they're a load of immoral cowards.
As to the bolt not being deflected, a light saber can cover every inch of the body. We need to sort this Jedi thing properly.))
Name: Taklin Flax
Rank: Jedi Master, after his son, Hal passed the trials.
Saber: One 1.3 metre silver bladed, longhandled saber, with variable length and power settings. Blade goes from 30cm to 200cm
Combat Form: Form II Master, reasonably proficiant Form III.
Abilities: Execelant speed and TK, reasonable healing and forsight/danger sense. Flax' weakness his relativly low ability to influence others. He has an afinity for the unifing force, which alows him to see beyond the imidiate problem.
Name: Sophae Flax
Rank: Jedi Master.
Saber: One 1 metre orange bladed, longhandled saber.
Combat Form: Highly proficiant Form III, she switches to Form IV during offensive saber combat.
Abilities: Good speed and TK, excelant healing abilities, she sees the future with surprising clarity, her ability to cloud minds is so strong it is potentially lethal. She has an afinity for the unifing and living force, she is so at one with the force that she ages at 3/4 normal speed.
Name: Halren Flax
Rank: Jedi Knight
Saber: One 1.4 metre silver bladed, longhandled saber, with variable length settings. Blade goes from 75cm to 250cm
Combat Form: Form IV Master, some form II and III.
Abilities: Good speed and TK, relativly poor healing, good
forsight/danger sense. Hal has inherited his father's weakness, his relativly low ability to influence others. He has an afinity for the living force and flows with the moment. Deadly in Combat.
Name: Kalren Flax
Rank: Padawan, currently apprenticed to Deac Starkiller.
Saber: One 1.3 metre silver bladed, longhandled saber, with variable length and power settings. Blade goes from 30cm to 200cm
Combat Form: Form II Master, reasonably proficiant Form III.
Bias: Philosipher/ healer
Abilities: mediocre speed and TK, good healing and forsight/danger sense. He has a strong ability to cloud minds and see the future.
I should point out the Although Hal is a Form IV master he devotes a disproportionate amount of time to combat and is already in his late 20's. No-one who is younger than 30 could expect to be a saber master, unless the concentrated souly on combat.
I: This is the basis for all other saber forms, it comprises the basic moves required to handle a light saber.
II: Developed during the wars with the Sith, this form is devoted to dueling with other swordsmen, it is composed of incredibly complex and intricate moves, parries and thrusts.
III: This form evoled once the blaster became more prolific than the saber, a highly defensive form, designed to protect the Jedi, it emphasises defence over attack, often leaving the knight deficiant in a duel.
IV: A form emphasising movement, speed and grace, it often leaves the Jedi unprotected for a moment, before his next move. The Form relies on speed to be used succesfully.
V: This is a more agressive development on Form III, the best defence is a strong offence, turn the attack back against your oponent.
VI: A multi purpose form which requires intense study of all other forms and then combines them into a style which adapts to the situation.
VII: The most avanced form of saber combat, it requires decades of practice, as well as strict mental control, very agressive and affective.
You get the idea.

When you're jumping there's less of a chance, especially at the speed Flax was going.
I get that the armor was to scare Kvana. But I didn't think he'd changed his clothes since he faced Kvana (it's been less than ten minutes since the sun got blocked out) But if he wasn't wearing it then I apologize. My mistake.
One last thing certain Jedi are powerful enough to prevent Coruscant from being nuked. (just as Quhn Vaas gave his life in PtH to save Coruscant from being destroyed by the Aesir) So, it won't happen. Jedi are not murderers - and even if Flax feels it's the best thing to do, other Jedi will not.))
Starr: *to Gilian* He knew you. Another creature from your universe?
Gilian: A..a vampire hunter. A mortal, from Earth. He disappeared, well, hundreds of years ago. I don't understand how he's still alive. *She shakes her head* Anyway, I have to leave. With Rwos. He needs to get medical attention immediately.
Starr: Wait! My master Cracken...
Gilian: You're going to have to find your master yourself.

Gilian: No. Unless your ship can jump dimensions, in which case I'll be happy to have your help. *She picks up Rwos and carries him out the door*

*Deac crouches over Rwos*
Deac: The hell...they sucked his mind out or something...

*Rwos opens his eyes. Gilian, startled, drops him, then hastily apologizes. Rwos rubs his head*
Rwos: Thanks, Deac.
Gilian: What just happened? How are you...
Rwos: Alive? The demon underestimated me. He didn't realize I had a regenerative ability...
Gilian: What the hell was that? That wasn't K'Warra K'laar, was it?
Rwos: Not exactly. His body was being mentally influenced by that demon.
Gilian: Well...what did he want?
Rwos: I can't tell you.
Gilian: Dammit Rwos, I swear---
Starr: I hate to interrupt, but...WHERE IS LORD CRACKEN?

Starr: If it isn't the clone of my master's son...
06-02-2003, 09:49 AM
((*Fused Irvine becomes translucent* XD
Yeah, I only use 'twined' voice cus it sounds the best proper way to explain it. like when he speaks, you hear the younger WH Irvine's voice and Elder WH Irvine's voice. just to make him seem more creepy))
Fused Irvine: *twined voice (again)* "Tisk, tisk. And to think we are more powerful then him..."
*Irvine grits his teeth.*
Fused Irvine: "Tell me, when you see a reflection of yourself, and your not standing in front of a reflectant surface, you can't help but feel the strongest anger and jeliously for almost no appearent reason?" *Laughs*
*Irvine remains silent.*

Kaildor i have a lot of catching up to do. Adavtage of living alone...no-no confusing things happen. And ahy arnt we gonin after that man with the crossbow??

((My point stands, Flax wouldn't jump.))
*Flax' comlink double beeps.*
Flax: This is General Flax.
Com: This is Senator Tar Redis. Your taking too long General, in exactly 24 hours we will utalize plan C4.
*Flax' face turns ashern.*
Flax: Sir you can't.....
Redis: Too late General, remove all your personnal in 24 hours. After that the Destroyer Rellentless will fire her warheads.
*The com clicks off and Flax, visibly shunken, turns to the group.*
Flax: The Senate has just autherized the use of dessisive force, if every last Vampire is not destroyed within 24 hours then they will launch Stronium90 Clad Thurmonuclear Airbursts. The planet will be totally un-inhabitable.
06-02-2003, 09:04 PM
Fused Irvine: *looks at deac* "Foolish really... Do you not sense our power, now at a more fuller potential? Our previous incarnation was looking for an honorable fight, so he subconsiously left himself weaker then what he should have been, thus we amerged."
*He unwraps the bloody bandage on his right forearm, revealing the arm, completely healed.*
Fused Irvine: "You're no match for us now. All of you..."
((Okay, here's my logic: Usualy the Hero's of a story would be put up agenst impossible odds agenst a single powerful foe.
So why not allow the same circumstance, but have more then one foe agenst the group, with no care about which group of foes cares about the other, only that they have a 'turn' to 'play with' the weaklings. :)))
06-02-2003, 11:21 PM
((BD: Flax did jump....
*Flax sees the bolt, he force jumps and sumersults, bringing his saber up defensive and drawing the force around himself.*
During the Jump, which you had Flax make Duncan fired if I'm correct...))

((OOS: Flax DID jump.
*Flax sees the bolt, he force jumps and sumersults, bringing his saber up defensive and drawing the force around himself.*
If you hadn't put that I would never have said he was hit in midair, as that would certainly be godmoding ;p
edit: Eep. Admiral said it already. Oops ^^;;
Scar: I don't think it fits in the RPG at the moment, if that's what you're asking.))
*Unfortunately no one replies to Kalidor, as they are wrapped up in their own argument.
Starr almost replies to Fused Irvine, then chooses to ignore him as well*
Gilian: *enraged, to Flax* You bastard, what have you told them?
Rwos: *sigh* I'll handle them. Starr, come with me. *as Starr balks at the order* If Cracken vanished here odds are we need this place intact to find him again. I suspect I know what may be happening to him. *turning* Gilian, you go after the books. Ignore the vampires if you can, just do whatever you can to unblock the sun before the spell gets too strong to handle.
Gilian: Ignore the vampires?
Rwos: They're a distraction. For something I suspect we'll become aware of very soon. That much I learned from K'Warra's thoughts. The books the vampire used to blot out the sun were planted in Coruscant's library by the demon - Sejhan. What's puzzling however is how he knew the vampires would find them...
*to Deac* You can either go with Gilian to find the books, or with me to disable the Relentless. *to Gilian* Let the others come with you if they wish. You may run into problems you don't expect.
*To Flax* Tell me how I can get to the Destroyer Relentless.
Girl: You need to cool down your arrogance. Your chaotic side is becoming too pronounced and it will destroy you if you let it grow. *She circles Cracken* Your powers are growing more rapidly than I expected. That's very good. *continues circling* But I told you, the time isn't right for you to interfere. Certain things must be. The people you almost destroyed when you let your emotions control you... Well, one of those certain things is that they must live, for now. I told you you would not be able to stop what would come - why didn't you listen to me?
Edited to specify which Irvine Starr was ignoring ;)
06-03-2003, 12:24 AM
*Fused Irvine lets off an evil laugh at the events proseeding in front of him. Irvine keeps his eys on his clone, hand gripped on his saber, just as his clone discribed, he was becoming angry...*
06-03-2003, 01:13 AM
*Over a com to the Disen*
Hildr: It is agreed then. I'll speak with you shortly.
*Hildr exits the fighter and slips into the library. She deftly enters the room where the group is.*
Hildr: I doubt he will help you at all, or if he does you still will be to late to stop them. I'm willing to beat that the General always wanted to destroy the planet. Think about it. They haven't even tried the simplest measures like a quartine. He immediatly ordered a futile evacuation, and then argued with everyone about staying and fighting.
I doubt that he even cares about the millions that will be slaughtered in the attack. At the very least he is the Republic's perfect scapgoat. The public outcry at this massacure, will be strong, and the Republic to save it's own hide will put the blame squarely on General Flax. Who knows Flax may even be doing this as an elaborate ploy so he can forment rebellion and become the next Emperor.
*Turning to Gilian*
Do as Rwos says, vampires have already left the planet.
*Turning to Rwos*
You have done well Blade. As such I can offer you a kind of reward. We can provide you transport to the Destroyer....
*In space above Coruscant the Aesirian task forces cloaks*
06-03-2003, 03:41 AM
*Cracken turns his head, in disgust*
Like i should take advice from a child. *He glared at her harshly* I'll only ask you once. What do you want from me?
*Deac puts his hands on Rwos shoulder*
Deac: I'm going for the books. There's still a chance we can prevent further bloodshed. Good Luck, Rwos.
Right, Gilian, which way?
06-03-2003, 07:38 PM
Flax: You said yourself that a quarantine won't work. We have 24 hours to sort the sun-block. If you can do that I think I might be able to buy you some time. Look, the Senate Defence Commity gave me a deadline, then they would consider "alternatives." The deadline is in 72 hours, not 24. Evidently they have no faith in our ability to control this situation.
Looking at our track record I can't really blame them.
Rwos, you can't get to the Relentless, she's automated and sealed, any breach of the hull will set the launchers off and we'll all be so many ionized particals. She's our new kill-all and she was supposed to be unvailed to the Galaxey in a few days time. Not to mention she's cloaked.
06-03-2003, 08:12 PM
((BD: When did the republic begin using cloaking devices so much. I do hope you realize that they wouldn't have solved the problems with them...
I also hope you realize the consquences of what you done.))
Hildr: The Republic has finally become no better then Palpatines Empire. Creating a ship who's only purpose is to destroy planets, automated no less so Flax doesn't have to worry about anyone with a morals do stop such a launch. Who knows maybe Flax here wants to become the next Emperor.
Make note that He doesn't even try to stop this, and admits that he knew about this beforehand.
Fine, we won't board the ship, we will just destroy it before it can launch. You have no idea what we can do, I promise you this, you won't be able to destroy the planet...
06-03-2003, 09:07 PM
Fused Irvine: *walking into teh centre of the group* "How interesting... Not only do you all not even attempt to find any traces of a trail from where that vampire eluded you, but you also won't investigate to find reasons why those people were here just now. At least in more detail..."
Irvine: "Why don't you shut up..."
06-03-2003, 11:41 PM
((OOS: Um, Fused Irvine is making almost no sense at all Scar))
*Rwos silently wonders if this was the reason the existence of NRI's interdimensional branch had been hidden from Flax' department*
Gilian: *in a parting shot at Flax* Weren't you boasting that you could make a star go nova, yet you won't stop this weapon from killing us all? So much for the power of a "Jedi".
Starr: *to Fused Irvine* Shut up or I'll take your head off. *to Flax* What you are trying to tell us is a load of lies. The Senate commitees are a pack of cowards. They would never accept this unless someone manipulated them into doing so. Someone like you. After all, our spies have told us that you were the one handling this "vampire problem". Only you or your lackeys through you could have given the Senate the false impression that the threat was so terrible that the capital city of the galaxy would have to be leveled to contain it...
*Rwos speaks up* I'm sure Flax has no plans on becoming the next Emperor. *looking at Flax* I'm also sure he knows who holds the proper codes to deactivate this superweapon...or perhaps can put us in contact with the architects, who surely would know how to disable it...
*Gilian looks disgusted* You're wasting your time, Termand. *She turns to Deac and the others* Follow me. I'm calling my glider. We don't have time for this.
*The girl smiles at Cracken's comment* In time you'll know. Until then...
*The white around Cracken seems to take form. Then, it rapidly "melts" through and over him, from the inside out. The room obscures in blank white.
The only thing still there was Alys' mental signature, still out of reach but somehow seeming slightly stronger...*
Somewhere in Warp Space
*Farran, Artemis, and Kioet are seated at a small but ornate table in a nicely furnished room. Despite the few fancy touches the room still read as made for business. Several suited men brought refreshments for the group. Farran recognized the ones brought to him as being from Earth, delicacies. It disturbed him that he couldn't remember the names.*
Artemis: We've been here a while...when is the woman coming to see us?
Farran: I'm not sure I want to know what this is about. *He looks warningly at Artemis* Appearances mean nothing in these cases, remember that.
Artemis: I can't for the life of me figure out who these people are. But they're clearly from Earth. And rich.
Farran: Indeed they are...
*Farran stares at Kioet, sizing him up. The people who had escorted them in had been only to happy to let him accompany them. No, in fact they had insisted on it.
Which was puzzling. Clearly they were playing on the fact that he and Artemis were from Earth. They knew exactly who he really was and they probably knew who Artemis was too. Certainly they wanted to exploit this.
Which begged the question. Why bother pampering the Trandoshan? Someone who must appear as native muscle picked up for hire?
Farran keeps staring*
Kioet...what do they know about you that I don't?
06-04-2003, 12:02 AM
((Do insane individuals ever do, red?))
*Fused Irvine bursts out laughing at Starr.*
Fused Irvine: "You're such a pathetic creature, all of you! HA! I'll leave you to your business. Oh and by the way kid..." *Turns to Irvine.* "You can stop hiding the fact you are wounded,..." *Smiles* "I can sense it in your anger, it comes from desparation..."
Irvine: "What!? Argh..."
*Irvine gives up hiding that he's wounded internally, as he grits his teeth and semi closes an eye. He charges Fused Irvine, while igniting his saber. But at the last second, Fused Irvine jumps up, and seemingly vanishes, only with the echo of laughter...
Irvine falls to a knee, while extinishing his saber.*
Irvine: "Starr... I accidently closed my wound, without expelling the bolt... It'll hurt me more if it is forced out..."
06-04-2003, 12:13 AM
Starr: You fool. Why did you do that? The bolt is too long, it'll work its way through your internal organs and kill you if you leave it where it is. Didn't anyone train you in...never mind. *He closes his eyes, stretching out with the Force* It needs to be removed. Then you can use one of those healing trances you Jedi like so much.
Can't let my master's son die...
06-04-2003, 12:40 AM
Irvine: "Come on, give me a break. I wasn't thinking at the time, like father like son I guess..." *smiles* "But like I said, it'll hurt me even more if it's forced out now... I believe it being done surgically would be alot better, besides it won't kill me yet..." 'I guess I'm just as stubborn as my father...'
*Irvine consentrates, and then stands up with little difficulty, keeping his mind on the bolt's position, he pulls out his remote and presses a button for the cargo ramp to open on his ship.*
Irvine: "I have medical suppies on my ship, it'll help me. Although I'm sure one of those star destoriers wouldn't take someone openly calling himself a close relitive to the Emperior..."
06-04-2003, 12:45 AM
Hidlr: Why? The last time I checked there was a peace treaty between the Republic and the Empire....
06-04-2003, 09:45 AM
Irvine: "That's besides the point, argh... Nevermind, I'll just go up there."
[Um...a few problems, BD. One: Cloaking devices are extremely hard to find and make. The planet that produces the crystals is gone. Two, the use of such a ship is majorly out of character for the NR, and locking it down is stupid. What if someone got the codes?]
*Deac waits for the glider to land and turns to Flax*
Deac: If that thing's not out of commission when this is over, I'm resigning. I can't believe something like that would be built.
06-04-2003, 05:28 PM
Do i go with the power wielding genral, the power of that ship....or with the man who can give me answers ive serchered for all my life...
his mind amde up kaildor went over to the glider following deac
06-04-2003, 05:45 PM
Flax: Look, I didn't create this thing. I'm not even NRI. I'm attached to Fleet intelligance. There's nothing actually revolutionary about the ship. The cloak is an older model than I am. However, It does have a weakness. The cloak is one way. However, the one way is only about 97% effective. If you use a wide beam scan with a strong enough power output you should be able to locate the ship.
Its a modified version of the Old Republic's Stygium Crystal cloak.
((OSS: Just because the Planet is gone doesn't mean all the crystals are. I don't know! I didn't design the thing! :o ))
*Turns to Hidlr.* You know I have nothing to do with this, yet you still perpetuate lies.
Flax: There's a way to stop the thing. You have to wind its internal cloak foward until after it has fired. That will fool the ship into shutting down.
06-04-2003, 10:29 PM
((OOS: I have to agree with Deac, BD, using something like this is extremely out of character for the NR. I hope there's an explanation in the offing...
Also the Old Republic didn't use the cloak, Darth Maul did...))
Gilian: *powering up her glider and its disks* You pretend to have had nothing to do with this yet everything you say says differently. You know everything about this weapon yet you didn't bother doing anything to stop it? I know your kind. You're all about power, and as long as you can get it the consequences be damned. And don't pretend this is a surprise. I've got vamp hearing, remember? I heard that entire conversation you had over your comlink. You told us had information that wasn't in that conversation - like that the Senate would consider alternatives if we unblocked the sun - either you were lying or you knew about this all along.
Starr: Stygium crystal invisibility cloaks have been used by the Sith for a long time. If the Republic is supposed to be so squeaky clean I would be interested to know how exactly you acquired this technology...
06-04-2003, 11:24 PM
((I'm going to assume that Irvine is being helped by starr))
Irvine: *talking only loud enough for Starr to hear.* "I suppose only my people were the only true new order that came out of the Civil War... I don't care if that vampire can hear me, but maybe if there was a more deeper investigation on the 'quote, unquote' New Order and the senate, maybe there can be something that could be dug up. There has to be some darkness in that order, it only makes sense, it goes all the way back to my friend's alledged death turned willful interrigation several weeks ago."
06-05-2003, 02:48 AM
Hildr: Please General, you expect us to believe your plan. Unless the Republic has the most inept programmers in the universe, it would fail. You advance time and you make the ship launch sooner, not stop the launch. If anything you would want to rewind the clock and put it in a loop so it never reaches zero. Then again to have such a huge weakness as that makes me think once again your lieing.
Then again it is a brillant plan, if you think about it. We advance time making the ship launch it's missiles sooner so we are blamed for Coruscants Descruction. Flax is hailed as a hero for trying to save as many lives as possible. Further he then with his mysterous knowledge of the ship finds it and captures it. Then he finds the sith cloaking device. This implicates the Empire allowing him to complete his conquest of imperial space. I would also add, that it is possible that we are also hailed as hero for trying to stop the "Imperial" ship. However, we of course conviently die in the attempt. This way everyone with knowledge of the his involvment in the event is silenced.
I guess this would be a good enough time to say, that the media will eventually find out about the Republic's planet killer. Finally if anything happens to me, or if the planet is destroyed then the media will also recieve information that will show Flax's involvment in the entire incident. *Smiling*
06-05-2003, 12:16 PM
*Kioet grabs the fanciest-looking bottle, opens it and pours himself a glass*
Kioet: This better be poisoned.
*Kioet picks the glass off the table and drinks*
Kioet: a little strong...
*Kioet pours himself another*
Kioet: ...but not strong enough.
*Deac turns to Flax, his face fallen, and holding firmly onto his NRI insignia*
Deac: Tell me,... sir, ....my friend, tell me what they're saying is false. Tell me it's a lie.
On second thoughts, screw this ship. We get the spell books now and that ship won't be firing. We can deal with this later.
06-05-2003, 08:42 PM
((Redwing, you are mistaken. Stygium crystal cloaks were widly known about during the OR era. There's even an artical on the holonet about the crystals starting to run out.))
Flax: We advance time to after the launch, that way the ship thinks its already fired. So it shuts down and de-cloaks. It would work. We'll never find a slicer in time though. So that leaves only one option.
*Turns to Deac.* Colonel, I was never here, I never told you this and you had no involvement in what I am about to do.
I really thought you all had more faith in me.
*Flax activates his comlink again.*
Flax: Bring her in Chip.
*3 minutes later.*
*Flax' X-Wing lands, he runs towards it and chages into his flight gear then climbs in, he looks back at the group.*
Flax: Its best you never saw me, I've towed the line too long, now thing are going to change.
((Yes this is highly out of character for the NR. Thats all I'm saying. Just no-one else come up with another plotline, okay.))
06-05-2003, 09:24 PM
((I think you should keep it BD, I mean who the hell cares about it begin so 'expanded universe' anymore, this is 'cantina universe'! Let the NR become evil!!))
06-06-2003, 01:19 AM
((I didn't say they were unknown. I said the Old Republic did not use them, which is a little inaccuracte - I should say it was Sienar technology. We all know what that means.
From http://www.starwars.com/databank/starship/sithinfiltrator/eu.html :
The Sith Infiltrator is equipped with a terrifying technological wonder -- a full-effect cloaking device that gives invisibility upon command. An invisibility field is a formidable weapon, since it can defeat most security systems and make acts of theft, sabotage, and assassination all but unstoppable.
From http://www1.theforce.net/CUSWE/categories.asp?page=2&category=11&type=&qualifier=&no=100 :
this rare, crystalline mineral is found only on Aeten II. Sienar Advanced Projects discovered that the crystal could be used to create a full-effect cloaking system that defeated the sensors and security systems of larger craft
this (http://www.holonetnews.com/53/business/13425_2.html) does indicate that they were well-known. However, still Imperial technology. Thus what Starr and Hildr says still stands...it isn't Old Republic technology it is Sienar technology. From Starr's point of view only someone with Sith connections could have found any after this long.
edit: Okay, I don't think that's clear enough...I'm not saying the NR *couldn't* have found an old cloaking device. I'm just saying that it's valid to say it looks suspicious. Not that a planet killer doesn't look suspicious enough))
Rwos: *As Flax leaves* Hopefully we can believe him. *to Hildr* I think I want to take you up on that offer anyway, though...
Gilian: *distastefully* Interesting about-face. I'd trust that man about as far as I could throw him...no, scratch that, I could probably throw him pretty far. *to the others* I'm not sure where we'll be going, but here is a rough idea. *She twists open a watch-like device she is wearing, and connects it with her glider's console with a wire. A 3-D map projects on the ground, a minature representation of Coruscant's surface. Intermitten blue symbols appear on the map in seemingly random places*
Gilian: The vampire is using a mystical power to teleport. The books left a trail. *The symbols connect themselves with blue lines in a wild zig-zag pattern* Since he's a vampire he can't enter the abode of a living being without being invited in. Not even through teleportation. The erratic pattern is because he was teleporting around the homes. *She points to the ending symbol* This is where we go.
Starr: *to Irvine* Only new order? What are you talking about? You're talking nonsense...also, darkness in the New Order? You have no idea.
06-06-2003, 01:48 AM
Hildr: Fine, come with me.
*Hildr exits the library, and heads towards the Raptor fighter*
What exactly do you want to do?
06-06-2003, 01:57 AM
Rwos: Get Coruscant out of danger from the Destroyer. I have a couple plans...but they depend on several factors that I can't be sure of until I see the area.
06-06-2003, 02:01 AM
((Also, the Super Star Destroyer Fade has a full fledged cloaking device. it was mentioned in the Battle of Ulla Sharrdes, at the end of the Imperial Civil War, in the last thread. ))
*Cracken feels his daughters mental image, and reaches out into the whitness*
Alys....... *He turns, and yells into the whitness* GIVE ME BACK MY DAUGHTER YOU BASTEREDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Admiral Karrak: Com scan has detected an annomoly, possible a cloaked Republic ship.
Tojo: Keep an eye on it... *he thinks* is it similar to the Fade's?
Tojo: Watch it, carefully. Contact Starr and the Emperor, they should know about it.
((Yes, the Imperials can kind of detect cloaked ships, because they do have to keep track of the Fade, ya know. ^_^))
*The com officer relays the news to Starr and Cracken's respective comlinks, but Cracken's is not there*
Com: Sir, Cracken's comlink is not recieving.
Tojo:Impossible. try it again. get a response from Starr.
*Tojo stares into space. What in the hell is going on...?*
06-06-2003, 02:06 AM
*Cracken receives no answer from the whiteness. Alys' mental signature remains just out of reach*
*Starr picks up his comlink* Yes? Who is it?
06-06-2003, 02:14 AM
*The Com officer nods, and Tojo walks over, and picks up and puts on the headset*
This is Tojo. Where's Cracken, why isn't he answering his comlink?
anyway, we have detected an unknown cloacked ship in orbit around Coruscant. We're currently monitoring it's activity, and are prepared to destroy it if it engages in any hostile action against us or Coruscant itself. The evacuation is also going well. we're having some screening problems, but so far, so good. is this satisfactory?
06-06-2003, 09:43 AM
Irvine: *whispering again* "It would only make sense for what's going on here Starr..."
*Irvine pulls out his remote as his ship intercepts.*
Irvine: "Tell who ever is on that commlink that I need some medical assistence." *force jumps off onto his ship, but lands roughly.* "What ship is they guy on?"
Deac: Flax...don't go. We can fix this. We can.
Let's move out now! We can talk about this later!
06-06-2003, 09:28 PM
*Flax turns to Deac with a pained expression.* Deac, I'm going to fix this. Its going to be very messy though; I don't want you to catch any flak.
*Flax climbs into the fighter and seals the canopy*
Flax: Chip take us up the the Independance.
*The fighter lifts off and heads starward. Some time later the fighter glides into the main landing bay of the Republic's most powerful warship.
Flax climbs out, an aide is waiting for him.*
Flax: Ensign, I want every divisional head in the Executive Briefing room in 15 minutes.
Aide: Yes Sir. *The young man walks off toward a turbolift.*
*Flax heads towards another lift and takes an takes an express, no stop trip to his quarters, where he quickly gathers some data cards and then heads to the Briefing.*
*15 minutes later.*
*The last of the officers file in, Admiral Thran, Fleet Commander, turns to Flax.*
Thran: You had better have a damm good reason for this Tak.
Flax: Yes sir. Just over two weeks ago some of us, including myself, were briefed on a new Weapon which the Senate Defence Commity and the Fleet Admiral believed would safe guard the future of our goverment and our people.
*Flax pauses and Thran jumps in.*
Thran: General, this is Classified information, I warn you....
Flax: Just over 45 minutes ago I was informed that this new weapon would be used on Coruscant.
*Flax presses on* This new weapon is a modified version of our standard Lighting Torpedo Attack Destroyers. *Goes on to relate Rellentless Specs.*
*The Fleet Intelligance Head, Colonel Re'tica, a Twilek speeks.*
Re'tica: This weapon goes against everything we have fought for!
Flax: I agree, that was what I said when it was revieled to me; I was assured that the weapon would never actually be used. It appears the Senate fears Vampires more than open rebelion.
Army General: Rebelion? What are you suggesting, Sir?
Flax: This weapon must be destroyed within the next 23 hours or the remaining population of Coruscant will be horribly murdered.
We have much less time than that however, since my abrupt arrival here is bound to attract attention. So here's what we're going to do....
((Up to now Flax has been in shock, hense the lack of conherance. If you can't see where this is heading then you won't be very interested in the next couple of threads.))
06-07-2003, 12:48 AM
Starr: I'd also like to know where the Force Cracken is. I do know there's a cloaked ship in orbit above Coruscant. It's an automated planet destroyer built by the New Republic. In less than twenty-three hours it's programmed to immolate Coruscant. Be prepared to blow it to space dust at a moment's notice, I don't care if it'll take the whole fleet's firepower. And if in twenty-two hours nothing's happened to it, consider that a go-ahead to make something happen.
Oh and Cracken's son - or his clone, I'm not sure which - is down here in need of medical attention. Send a transport for him.
*The group moves out with Deac. Gilian flies the glider into the air*
Gilian: Just sit tight. This will be a few minutes...
06-07-2003, 02:24 AM
((Red, Irvine's ship isn't a go-cart ^_~
he can fly himself up there, unless you want Starr to think that he's really too wounded to make it up there, which I could put into mind... *hums and ponders...*))
*Coruscant, outside Jedi Temple*
*Several Jedi, each in a defencive stance, with slight paniced expressions on their faces, as emptied robes lay about on the ground.*
Jedi 1: "What is this guy!?"
Jedi 2: "I donno, but I can't predict his attacks..." 'He just came out of nowhere...'
Fused Irvine: "You should give up and let me kill you. You're only making it harder on yourselves... We haven't ever planned on showing you mercy..." *Laughs, very evily...*
Jedi 3: "Don't let him scare you! If he kills us, we'll be more powerful then he is!"
Fused Irvine: "Arrogence will get you killed..."
*Fused Irvine throws a burning red force destruction at the three, the second Jedi barely manages to dodge the extremely excellerated blast.*
Jedi 2: *laying on the ground, heavly wounded "You'll never defeat us all..."
Fused Irvine: "I never planned on it..." *finishes off the Jedi with force lightning.*
*As the last guard Jedi dies, Fused Irvine extingishes his lightsaber, and enters the temple...*
((I admit it this is godmoding, but after this i'll let BD take control of the Jedi.))
06-07-2003, 03:36 AM
Tojo: As you wish, an transport is enroute unless Cracken's son says otherwise. *Tojo looks to Karrak* Get a medical team down to which every docking bay Cracken's son will be arriving. Also, all commands are to lock in on the cloaked annomoly immediatly. have them on stand by for the next 22 hours.
*Karrak nods, and gives the order*
Tojo: We'll stand by. If Cracken's son wishes medical, have him go to the Eclipse class Star Destroyer Devastator.
06-07-2003, 04:08 AM
((OOS: BD doesn't control all Jedi everywhere...))
Starr: *to Irvine, before leaving* A transport is coming for you. Go with them if you want medical help. Or follow them in your ship if you don't trust them, I don't care.
06-07-2003, 10:53 AM
Irvine: "Alright,.." *throws remote to Starr.* "I'm going to land down on that building, use my ship to get off this planet, if things go bad..."
*Irvine's ship, which was already given the command to, begins turning towards the 'pointed' platform.*
Deac: I wonder what he'll do?
*Deac stares at the black hole in the sky where the son would have been*
How many vampires do you think will be guarding this?
06-07-2003, 09:01 PM
*Hildr and Rwos climb into the Raptor starfighter. The original pilot had left and was now on a cloaked transport.
Hildr lifts the fighter off the ground before the canopy closes completely. In a minute the fighter was in space oribiting Coruscant*
Hildr: We'll be at the destroyer shortly. You realize that a new rebellion is probably going to be starting soon. Most of the galaxy will be in chaos. Everything is falling into place....
06-07-2003, 10:24 PM
((Admiral, Redwing; leave the Rellentless to me. Plus, Red yes I do.))
*Time skip 2 hours.*
*The squad leaders of the Second Fleet sit in the largest Briefing room. The pilots had been surreptitiously moved from their various ships by shuttles and fighters. Now they were all here.*
*Flax adresses the group.* We are short on time here so I will be brief. Following our defeats by the Imperial Forces Two years ago certain elements within the High Command decided that we needed a new weapon, something to use against the Empire if they crossed us again.
This weapon is now going to be used on Coruscant.
Flax: You all know the consiquence of Stronium90 bombardment. So you all understand that this cannot be allowed to happen. The Rellentless must be destroyed.
Understand this also, we undertake this operation without the autherisation of anyone higher than Admiral Thran.
Flax: The Rellentless must be destroyed. This will reqire a presition dumb fire strike by our C5 Y-Wings. We will launch in 5 hours. One my signal we'll switch our IFF codes to the old Rebel frequency.
After that point a ship not using those codes is potentially hostile. If you're fired apon you must return fire. Is that clear?
Flax: Good. I don't like this any more than the rest of you. I'm not asking any less of you than I do myself. I will personnally lead the assualt.
Pilot: Sir, if the ship is cloaked how will we track it?
Flax: Good one. The cloak is not 100% effective against modern sensors. We have her orbit pattern and we'll down load that into your flight computers. When you get within range the Independance will begin scanning the area and the position of the target will be transmitted and displayed on your HUD.
Pilot 2: How are we going to pull this off.
Flax: We're launching under the excuse that we want to show the Senate Fleet Fighter Formations. We hope they'll be taken in. When all our bombers are out we make the attack.
Flax: Nothing else? Good, your squad assignments are in your datapads.
May the Force be with us all. Dissmissed!
*After the hasty briefing Flax headed to the Bridge and walked up to the comm officer.*
Flax: Anything yet?
Comm: No sir we still can't contact Commander Flax. Her comlink must be switched off.
Flax: Damm! Keep trying.
Comm: Yes sir.
Coruscant, Jedi Temple.
*Sophae has sensed Fused Ivrine and she now approaches him, shrouded in the force.*
((Ivrine shouldn't be able to sense her, yet.
I think everyone else should post a profile for their Jedi to stop us from pulling out any powers when we feel like it.
Remember, Flax is nearly Yode level and Sophae is probably as powerful as the muppet. Of course she's had far less practice.))
06-07-2003, 11:57 PM
*A holocom on Nar shadda*
Reporter: "Eariler today an unexpect turn of events, the Imperal fleet has entered Coruscant space in a strange co-effort with the Republic to fight off an unknown source. Transports have been launched from Coruscant one after another in a seemingly planet-wide abandonship."
*Camera view changes*
Reporter: "In other news related to those events, the Coruscant system's star has been unexplaningly have been blanketed out. While a new strand of 'The Raging Death' has lay claim on several thousand fleeing civilians from Coruscant. How ever sources say that the new strand only effects on individuals with certain active DNA gene strands."
*Coruscant. Jedi Temple*
*Fused Irvine turns around to see Sophae, almost like he didn't need to sense her to know she was there...*
Fused Irvine: *pulling out the Light-Masamune* "My dear lady, I need not to sense your hidden presence, but to smell your prefume..." *laughs*

((BD, no. Flax in the eyes of our characters he could be a key figure in plan to destroy Coruscant. If not that, there is no guarentee that he would succed.
Also according to Flax, a hull breach would cause the nukes to launch. I imagine firing torpedoes would cause many hull breaches....))
*The raptor fighter stays in orbit slightly above and behind the relentless. Hildr sat listening to New Republic Com chatter*
06-08-2003, 04:45 AM
((BD: You absolutely do not and cannot control all Jedi everywhere...besides you already don't. Misae is a Jedi. -.-
Also, I can't break character to leave the Relentless to you...however the nature of my character's plans should leave plenty of time for Flax to do...whatever he's going to.))
*Rwos activates a beacon for his Blade fighter*
Rwos: *grimacing* Unfortunately at this point it wouldn't surprise me.
Gilian: I don't know. I don't know anything about this mage except he's very powerful, so I can't predict anything...but in a few minutes, we'll get to see firsthand.
*Deac ignites his sabers*
Deac: Bring them on, bring them all on.
06-08-2003, 04:37 PM
((What I mean is that whatever you're going to do please fail. If Flax's plan fails he will be caught, tried and executed. As you can well imagine. As to the Jedi thing that was kind of a joke.
Also, I'm going to allow you guys to catch up a bit before I advance Flax' plot line. So hang on.))
Sophae: Well thats very odd, I would have thought the stench of your evil would have long ago killed off your sense of smell. *She allows scorn to colour her voice.*
06-08-2003, 06:36 PM
Fused Irvine: *laughs* "Ah, yes. Skilled and has a sense of humor..." ((Consideriong that it would take quite amount of consentraction to mask one's presence.))
*Fused Irvine extends his arm, and ignites the Light-Masamune, the blade extends to about a few inches in front of Sophae's nose. He pulls the Light-Masamune back now posed on his left side, while holding it with his right hand, the left semi-circled around the base of the emitting beam. All while leaning forward slightly, he glares at Sophae with a small grin. Talking was done, it was game time...*
*At that moment everything that could be felt from Fused Irvine was two conflicting presences, although he was perfectly incontrol of his actions.*
06-09-2003, 01:25 AM
((OK, I'm back, and i'll assume that Greer went with Gilam, Deac, and co.))
*some time between when the battle with Duncan ended and the gliders took off Greer pulled the bolt off and applied some bacta to his arm, and picked up his sword.*
*On the glider, Greer pulls out his sword*
Greer: we can take them now.
06-09-2003, 07:07 AM
((You assume right, JM. ^_^
I'm also assuming Kalidor is with us.))
Gilian: Be careful what you wish for.
*The glider lands in a dark alleyway. The hovering disks dissolve.
An abandoned tower stands close by*
Gilian: I can smell the vampires from here. Probably guards. We're upwind, so they probably don't know we're here yet. *to Greer and Kalidor* In case you haven't figured it out by now, we're trying to unblock the sun. To do that we need to get through the creatures guarding this place, which are obviously called vampires. Vampires are very dangerous creatures that can only be killed by a beheading or wood through the heart. Well, there's other ways, but none that you need to worry about right now. *She offers Kalidor and Greer each a crossbow and a stake*
((OOS: This means you decide whether you take them, Wilson and JM ;)))
I hope you two have had combat training, because you're going to need it. Let's move.
*As she passes Deac, she whispers in his ear* Those two - especially the one with the sword - don't think they know what they're getting into. Try and keep them alive...
06-09-2003, 02:38 PM
(( why yes, yes he is ~_^. Ithought i said he went with deac, but if i didnt, sorry))
*taking the stake and crossbow with a puzzeled expersion*
Kaildor: Aren't vampires just a fairy tale.....how do you know all this?"
Deac: In the days of the Empire, so was the force. Your point?
*Deac looks up at the imposing tower*
Whoa...looks kinda familiar. Anyhow, let's get in.
*Walks to entrance*
06-09-2003, 04:56 PM
*Greer takes them, and prepares them, cocking the crossbow and holding a stake in the other hand.*
Greer: And so were aliens before hyperspace, and so were cyborgs before AI. And so will the vampires hopefully remain after this.
*Looks at Gilan and grins*
Greer: Except those who don't suck the blood out of every living thing they see, of course.
06-09-2003, 08:30 PM
*Sophae laughs, almost a girlish giggle.*
Sophae: My, we are brave.
*Sophae ignites her saber, the glow casts a shadow over her face and for a moment something feral can be seen in her eyes.*
*She swings, upper cut.*
06-09-2003, 09:00 PM
*Fused Irvine's responce to the swinging blade, was to merely to swing his. He swong it horizontally with a slight downward motion lightning fast, blocking Sophae's blade. A clear cut was made into the wall in the corador and into the floor, seemingly if the blade was slowed a little, it hardly seemed possible at the speed he swinged his Light-Masamune.*
Fused Irvine: "You humor me."
*In the same fluid motion in same swing, Fused Irvine encircles Sophae with his blade, whole forcing her Saber to follow. Then at one point he stops and hops backward a few meters, going back into his stance.*
06-10-2003, 01:33 AM
Gilian: I know because I am a vampire. But I'm different from the others - the fact that I'm helping you should be your first big hint.
Starr: Care to explain...
Gilian: I have a soul. Long story. Anyway we don't have time for explanations. *She cocks her crossbow* The device used to block the sun is essentially disguised as a book. It'll probably be glowing, or something. So if you see a glowing book tell me. We'll probably have to find the head vampire to get to it, though.
Starr: And how are we to find this vampire?
Gilian: I'm still tracking the books, remember? Follow me.
*The group heads towards the tower. Gilian suddenly freezes when they've almost reached it*
Gilian: ****. The wind changed.
*A pair of vampires leap down from above*
*Farran, Artemis, and Kioet sit waiting in the room. Finally, the door opens. The woman who had spoken to them on the holo earlier enters*
Woman: I'm very sorry to keep you waiting. I hope you're not too offended.
Farran: *in a carefully suspicious* No, not at all.
Woman: My name is Lily Aren. Your friends are Artemis Omicron and Kioet Csuhen, and you are Ariel Kasen.
Farran: I prefer Farran Darkholme now.
Aren: I'm sure you all have plenty of questions. Anybody care to begin?
06-10-2003, 01:43 AM
Kioet: Are you a synthdroid? cause....DAMN.
06-10-2003, 01:47 AM
((How interesting how a lizard-creature would have interest in a human looking creature (or at least the last time i knew :D)))
06-10-2003, 01:52 AM
((behold: the art of sarcasm))
06-10-2003, 01:54 AM
*Greer quickly aims up and fires a bolt just below of the desending vampire's feet, knowing it will probably be impaled on his leg or above of it*
06-10-2003, 01:55 AM
((Hil-freaken-larious isn't it?))
*Deac notices the vampire fall toward him and grips hgis neck using the force*
Deac: Tell me...do vampires need to breathe? Because if you don't
*Prepares to throw saber* decapitation will do.
06-10-2003, 08:35 PM
Sophae: You are in turmoil, let go. The dark side will be your ruin.
*She does not attack, simply stands, relaxed.*
06-10-2003, 09:03 PM
Fused Irvine: "Turmoil!? Dark Side!? Maybe so, but at least it won't slow us down, HA HA HA HA HA!!" *Gives Sophae a sadistic grin, also showing his face more directly.* "Do you see Dark Side Rot on us? Afraid not. Sorry to make you expect that, we give credit to that pathetic little weakling that makes up of half our combined power..."
06-11-2003, 01:05 AM
*Before Deac throws his saber, Gilian shoots the vampire in the heart with a crossbow bolt. It dissolves into dust. She knocks the other vampire, the one shot by Greer, to the ground and beheads it.*
Gilian: Don't waste time!
*The group runs toward the tower. Another vampire leaps in their path. Gilian extends her arm blade and takes off its head without even pausing*
Aren: *smiling* I'll take that as a no. Ariel, or "Farran". It's been a long time since you...left. Do you remember hearing anything about an organization called the Shadows?
Farran: Let's pretend I don't. Enlighten me.
Aren: *walking around the group as she speaks* The Shadows were created for a dual purpose: to protect our organization's interests in established places and to scout out new interests in remote ones. I represent the power behind the Shadows.
Farran: And what "new interests" have you discovered in this "remote place"?
Aren: Oh, much more than we expected. You three, for example. These interesting beings you call "Jedi" and "Sith". Besides that, there's the previously unknown fact that this universe figures heavily into certain bits of prophecy and lore. Certain very important bits. Among other things. *She stops walking and stands in front of them* My point is, the people I represent have taken an interest in this dimension. And in you. I have an offer for the three of you...if you're interested.
06-11-2003, 10:46 AM
*In the past few hours after Farran and Kioet left, Ivan had managed to group up a few scientists whom also managed to escape the Loyalists.*
Ivan: *To scientists, continueing a conversation* "... I know we have the resorces to do that, but why are we begin held back?"
Scientist 1: "I'm sorry but with out an example DNA strand to work with to use as a basis we can't clone anything."
Ivan: "True and not. We do have something, genetic templates of a few Jedi that we managed to snag a long while back... We clone them, and 'program' them to attempt to assasinate Cracken his apprentence, hell, any family that he's got left."
Scientist 2: "You're not serious are you?"
Ivan: "What does it look like? Our forces are gone, our planets taken, this is our only last option..."
*A man walks into the gathered group of scientists*
Beta: Well? Did you find this guy who replaced me?
*Deac slashes at the nearest vampire's neck, moves forawrd and repeats. Using the force, he runs rapidly everywhere, until he stops.*
Deac: We ain't getting in this way...
*Deac force pushes the door, causing dents to appear*
06-11-2003, 05:00 PM
Ivan: "Oh, its you. It's about time you showed up. I was beginning to think you'd never come. Listen we have a few samples of DNA to use..."
*Ivan presses a button on a remote that he was holding, with activates a holocron showing 3-dimentional views of Helren Flax, Luke Skywalker, Deac Starkiller, Irvine Palpatine and one Orthos Darkstar.*
Scientist 3: "First we can't use Skywalker, cus he's too much of a hassle, besides he was cloned once, and that clone was killed."
Ivan: "Very well..." *Skywalker's image dims.* "One of those four..."
Scientist 1: "I doubt we need another Deac running around." *glances at 'Beta'.*
*Deac's image dims also.*
Ivan: "So that leaves these three..."
Scientist 2: "We only have enough resorces to produce two clones."
Ivan: "So pick one that won't be used!!"
06-11-2003, 07:06 PM
((Orthos has no force powers, and he's dead.))
*Sophae smiles again.*
Sophae: You underestimate me, terribly. Your powers conflict, you cannot draw on any true strength from the light, or the dark.
((Deac, are you going to post a profile in the jedi thread?))
06-11-2003, 07:10 PM
((Orthos did have force powers. The fact that he is dead doesn't matter if they have a complete dna strand. That is all they would need to clone him.))
06-11-2003, 09:03 PM
((Uh, no. Deac has stated many times that Orthos is totally force blind. "The force totally ignored him."))
06-11-2003, 09:03 PM
((Uh, no. Deac has stated many times that Orthos is totally force blind. "The force totally ignored him."))
06-11-2003, 10:39 PM
((Two things: First I have given the option for Orthos to return, plus its also his call to say that the rencarnation of Orthos will have force powers or not. Like yoda once said something along the lines that the force exsists through and within all life ^_~))
*Fused Irvine laughs.* "That may be true, what who says that we won't be the biggest threat you have come accross?"
*Fused Irvine extingishes the Light Masamune, pulling it away. He then shows Sophae his right arm, now completely healed.*
Fused Irvine: "Our forearm was heavly damaged about three hours ago by the very Deac Starkiller, now it is fully healed. Normally it would take day at best by a typical Jedi. Now how could that be? Bah! It matters not to us, it just means we can heal faster, then the typical Jedi. Thus meaning your logic implies not to ourselves..."
[Syrnl disliked Orthos because his supposed successor, being Orthos, was force blind. Besides, he's not coming back. Not this time. [?]
Also, Beta believes that he is the original Deac Starkiller]
Beta: Was that my name? That guy looks like me.
*The door cracks and falls backward*
Deac: This way!
06-12-2003, 05:11 PM
Sophae: You will fall, but not by my hand. *She turns away and heads towards the temple.
06-12-2003, 05:13 PM
((....the heck? I posted in this topic last night. Where did it go? o.O;; Oh well, this'll be short.
First: A clone of Orthos wouldn't mean Orthos was coming back. Clones are not the same as the original person.
Second: If the Imperials were able to artificially cause Deac to become Force sensitive (and I assume Syrnl), then I’m pretty sure they could do the same to Orthos.
Third: I kind of assumed that, considering how Orthos had an Avatar for a long time before realizing it was there, that he had Force powers as well, just dormant. Also, he seemed to make a pretty good opponent for Lokpihet despite his Force-blindness, so… Maybe others made the same mistake. :)
Lastly: Unless Orthos is killed in PtH, he will eventually end up here. ^_~))
Gilian: Move in hard and fast. Don’t give them time to react. What we’re looking for is in the top level. Go!
