((OOS: To everyone: Feel absolutely free to make an assassin character for this next part. Especially you people who were in the Karathi RPG, since I'm using my

The only criteria is that you be an exceptionally good
Mos Eisley Cantina
Saria: Certainly. But before you go in...you might want to turn your communicator off. *She winks* Just a friendly warning.

Ulna Shardes - Abandoned Vanguard Facility, Fourth Floor
*As the Blades watch, several intact machines in the docking bay begin powering up*
Slythe: What should we do?
Nereli: Wait, but be ready to leave instantly if necessary.

Cortosis ore...in its pure form it can short out a lightsaber blade, but shatters easily in the presence of explosives...
The five remaining Vanguard, seeming to have gained their second wind, form around him closely like a pack of wolves. Long spikes extend from their staffs. Starr brings his lightsaber up into a defensive stance*
