Riebe nodded her agreement and moved down the ramp. A few curious Jedi gathered around the ship, but they kept their distance. In a hushed voice, Riebe told her fellow Sith Hunters, "Keep your hands well away from your lightsabers. We don't want to give the wrong idea."

She kept hers crossed behind her back as she walked. Finally, they were stopped by Kyle Katarn.

"We've heard news from Coruscant," he said, not unkindly. "Luke isn't convinced, but many of the others are. I can't guarantee your safety if you pass me."

"If you come with us, you can," Riebe answered evenly. "But safety or not, I will see Skywalker. And I should think that, being the Grand Master, he ought to have enough control over his subordinates to keep them from attacking."

"And yet so many Jedi are turning to the Dark Side lately," Kyle murmured. "Follow me."

He led them through the training facility, past the stares of many Jedi, young and old. Most were filled with curiosity; several were accusing. Finally, they entered a long, tall room. Luke Skywalker sat, meditating at the other end of it. As the small party drew nearer, Luke spoke.

"You are now openly Sith Hunters," he said softly. "Reassure me you are not also hunting Jedi."

Riebe moved before him and knelt there. "I'm going to open my mind to you, kid. It's the best I can do to convince you we're not against you."

Luke smiled faintly at being called 'kid' by the woman who appeared to be nineteen and reached out his hand, lightly touching her forehead. Images flashed through his head; the Sith Hunters' refusal to give up their lightsabers; how Danni had turned the Council against them; the historian's arrival and words. Finally, Luke retracted his hand and opened his eyes.

"My taking a stand against the Jedi who claim this was your deed will sway many of the others," he said quietly. "But others will not care. The Dark Side will use them to bring an attack upon us here at Ossus."

"I have sensed as much," Riebe agreed. "Be aware, Skywalker. Be ready to leave if necessary. When the time comes, know you can count on us... but also keep this in mind: we are Sith Hunters once more. No longer do we take orders from the Jedi. Our natural habits include fighting and that's exactly what we'll do... once the real fight begins. Compassion or not, Tepe is still Sith. And though he was in no way responsible for what the Sith did to us, he still must be dealt with, as all Sith must."

"The Jedi cannot support you in battle," Luke cautioned. "We are peacekeepers and I feel it's important, now more than ever that we hold to that."

"There will be no negotiations with him," Riebe objected. "If you can't recognize that a war has begun and must be fought to regain peace, then they will overrun you."

Luke closed his eyes wearily. "I have to try," he finally said. "I wish you all the best of luck in your struggle, my Hunter friends. May the Force be with you."

Frustrated, Riebe echoed his words and stalked out of the hall. Just as they reached the ship, they were smoothly intercepted by Kyle Katarn and a young woman.

"Hunters, a few of you may remember Jahara," he said, gesturing to the girl. She smiled, running a hand through her short brown hair. "She was Danielle Bayers' best friend."

"And she wants to come, does she?" Riebe asked. Jahara nodded, but Riebe shook her head. "Tepe is no pushover. And Charna will be no joke by the time we get them in position to fight again. Sorry, kid, but you can best serve the galaxy where you are."

"I'm not a kid," twenty-one year old Jahara retorted. Kyle laughed.

"Jahara," he said, "to Riebe, I'm a kid." To Riebe, he said, "Don't you see? She's got just the kind of fiery energy you do. She'd have made a good Jedi, but..."

"Oh, so that's what this is about," Riebe chuckled. "Kid wants to join the Sith Hunters to get a shot at saving her friend." She leaned closer to Jahara and pulled the girl down to her eye level to look deep into her eyes.

I will not hold back. Your training will be fast and brutal, but efficient. You will learn more in a day from me than you would in a month from the Jedi. I will push you to be more than you think you can be.

"I'm tough," Jahara answered aloud. "Do your worst."

Riebe laughed. "Oh, my dear girl. I'll do my best. And you will learn." To Kyle, she said, "Was good to see you, kid. Thanks for giving up one of your best to us. We can use all the help we can get."

Kyle chuckled. "I'd offer more, but the others are rather intimidated by you. And Jahara insisted... she's quite stubborn."

"Good," Riebe said. "She'll need that stubbornness. Well, let's go."

And she boarded the Ragnarok, Jahara following her closely.

((Kind of an interesting potential situation. Katherine and Jahara vs. Charna, Riebe and Strider vs. Tepe, and Raek and Kin, vs. all other Dark Jedi opponents... looks to be a chaotic few posts when that all comes about ))

Strider remained quiet most of the time. He didn't want to draw attention to himself while around Luke. Although Skywalker had personally redeemed him into the order, that was one of the main reasons Strider wished to hide his personal conflict from him. As Jahara joined them, he only nodded in acceptance of the arrival of a new member. He walked onto the ship, sitting quietly in the pilot seat, looking over at the empty copilot seat for a moment, before putting his hands on the controls. He waited for everyone to board, and for Riebe to give him a destination.

As the Ragnarok reached upper orbit, a lone Venator-class Star Destroyer jumped out of hyperspace and then a lone Theta-class shuttle launched from it, passing the Ragnarok and flying down towards the Jedi Praxeum. As the shuttle landed, there were jedi greeting it, ready for a fight, but instead of a group of people coming out, Emukiel walked down the ramp and towards the building while the jedi stood in slight awe of him and the srong force aura surrounding him. He was so calm to be a sith, if he indeed had become one. Kyle Katarn stepped infront of the old man, blocking his route to see Luke. Before Kyle could say anything, the old Weequay took his hand and placed a holodisc on it.

"I bring peace to the jedi minds. The Dark Lord of the Sith, Second in charge of the Great Sith Council, Count of Tibrin and Lord of the Sith Dominion hereby ceases the interruption of hyperspace routes to this planet and gives the planet of Ossus immunity. He hopes you will find this acceptable and will be taking in negotiators, who at this time should not be Sith Hunters, from the Jedi Order in exactly a week after his campaigns are finished and a stable Sith Dominion society will have been created" he said in a loud manner so the jedi nearby could hear him and then leaving back to the shuttle. It was a speedy exit from the planet, just as it had been a speedy arrival. The shuttle soared throught the atmosphere andlanded inside the Venator before the ship would jump into hyperspace again.

------

Tepe concentrated his mind on the source of immense power and found out what was causing a disturbance in the force. He had had a feeling at the bridge of who it might be, but now it was clear to him. So... The great Sith Hunter called Strider was ready to fall. It would be easy to disturbe him more to gain a hold on him, but he would do no such thing. He had banned the hunters from the Jedi Order, making them a massive threat to himself and by making one of them fall to the Dark Side and use his rage might backfire on him the next time they met. He stood up and looked out the window before leaving the room and looking at the Colonel.

"Contact the Weequay and tell him to get back to Tibrin and start the next step of this conquest. Let him build the society, Just make sure my Generals keep an eye out on him and his commands. I don't want this to fail, Colonel" he said and the colonel bowed, leaving for his quarters to give out the orders. The two guards were dismissed and left as Tepe walked back to the bridge. As he entered, the captain walked over to he and Charna.

"Sire, Lady, we have taken the factories. Most opposition has been quelled and the planet is safe for you. We have left Tipoca City alone and have only secured the airspace and a landing pad for both you and Lord Kaoin" the man said and bowed. Tepe nodded and looked at Charna.
"Ready a shuttle then. We're going down to have a word with the Prime Minister on making an order" the Dark Lord said and walked off the bridge and towards the hangars, signalling Charna to follow. They would meet Kaoin down on the planet


"Our posturings, our imagined self-importance,
the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe,
are challenged by this point of pale light.
Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark.
In our obscurity in all this vastness there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.

((Nar Shaddaa will do fine... at some point, we're going out to Riebe's favorite planet on the Outer Rim... Watchtower, known oh so long ago as Gerv. But to Nar Shaddaa first.))

Riebe closed her eyes for a moment and considered all possible destinations. They could go to Coruscant, but if they did, the Jedi there would be sure to hinder their movements in every way possible. Corellia was a possibility, but Riebe wanted information not readily available in such a clean place as Coronet... clean? Riebe smiled slightly.

"Nar Shaddaa," she said quietly. "All rotten to hell, but a good source of information."

She opened her eyes and grinned devilishly. "Oh, I missed being a Sith Hunter and no more... let's go scare some crooks."

The shuttle set itself down steadily on a landing platform of Tipoca City. It was a mess compared to what it had been during and before the Clone Wars. The Rebel Alliance had destroyed many cloning facilities after the final victory over Coruscant and the formation of the New Republic. The Empire had once quelled a resistance there and those damages were still barely repaired. Now a powerful Sith Lord had come, causing more chaos and destroyal of the world. However, these could be repaired as he came with a lot of money behind him and an order for clones that would revitalize the Kaminoan economy in one large blow.

The shuttle ramp lowered and a squad of soldiers came out to secure the platform while Charna and Tepe headed for the door that opened for them. A tall creature waited for them there while Kaoin's shuttle landed on the second landing platform nearby. The door closed and the sounds of the sea were silenced.

"Good day, sir. How may I help you?" the Kaminoan said and bowed her head slightly to them. Tepe bowed back and smiled at the Kaminoan.
"I am here to place an order for your cloning facilities"
"I am afraid we cannot do that. The New Republic has given straight orders not to start any cloning. Also, our cloning facilities have been destroyed"
"The New Republic no longer controls you. The Sith Dominion has invaded your planet and that is why I have come here personally. I have enought money for you to repair your cities and build the required facilities. We offer you money and protection from the New Republic strike forces that might be willing to destroy your cities again, you give the Dominion 20,000 troops within 10 years from the completion of your facilities. You give me the plans for the facilities and I will give you the prime clone and all the workers you need. I have many planets' populations and unused soldiers that need the work" the Sith Lord said and a glaced glance filled the Kaminoan's eyes. Tepe chuckled and looked at Charna.
"It seems we have a deal" Tepe said and followed the Kaminoan as she led them first to meet Kaoin and then up to see the prime minister

Charna smiled. "Why am I not surprised?" she said. "Sith Lord takes over planet. Sith Lord offers full repairs in exchange for a full restoration of planet's economy in the form of an order for clones." She chuckled. "They'd be idiots not to deal."

"Aye, but we still have to deal with the New Republic. The jedi won't be a problem for a while. First they need to gather a new Master's Council and then decide what to do with my offering of full freedom to Ossus and the Jedi Praxeum. It will take them at least a month for that. The Senate is more problematic. With Leia standing behind her brother in the case that the Republic and Jedi Order should keep peace, it'll be split with those who want a war and those who see no problem with a few systems falling into Sith hands just as long as it means peace will reign" Tepe said and looked at his apprentices walking behind him.

"And these won't be any clones. They will be the core of this Dominion by keeping the people happy and obeying the rules set by planetary governments and by the Interplanetary government. Some of them will become your most trusted bodyguards, some of the later clone bunches will become your elite strike forces armed with the best weaponry we can get and transported with the best equipment Rothana can make" the Dark Lord explained and looked back forwards at the Kaminoan who led them swiftly throught the mazes of corridors. Currently they were going throught an old observation pipe throught a facility blown up when the New Republic took over. When the Sith Dominion would get it's hands on the facility plans, it could make these facilities everywhere and with some of the buildrs being spies to learn how to control the machines and grow the clones, they could still mke clones even without Kamino

((Even if this goes that far, it won't be much like AotC. The Clones will be trained in fighting against force-users and normal enemies, but won't see much action as a whole. The only that probably will see action are the guards assigned to the three Sith. However, this depends on how much and how fast Rothana can push out heavy weaponry such as walkers and gunships. If the recruits from Sith Dominion planets aren't enought, then the clones will take over some of the army, but those won't be trained in fighting force-users. Meh, we'll see eventually how it goes... ))

Strider nodded, and immediately made the jump to Nar Shaddaa. As soon as they arrived, he quickly found an unused landing place, knowing well landing area was available to those ready to pay - or persuade. He set the ship to cloak, but rather than disappearing, it changed to appear as a small mercenary craft on the exterior. Strider stood and headed to the main room with the rest of the Hunters, once again stepping off the loading ramp first. He looked around once again to insure safety before beckoning the rest down.

Katherine stopped next to Strider as everyone began to unload. She was curious as to what was on his mind, but knew he would not speak it unless necessary. She merely stood there to be support, looking up at him to deliver this assurance. Strider looked back and nodded, his expression seemingly grateful for her company. He did not know if he would become haunted by another vision, and in the event he was, would need the help of one or two of his fellow Hunters if the effects were as draining as the last.

Riebe watched Strider for a moment. Then, she spoke to his mind. Are you alright? You seem... distant. I don't think I've ever seen you this way.

Jahara was following Riebe, but as Riebe stopped, the girl did also. Then, she followed her master's gaze to Strider and frowned, puzzled. She knew it wasn't her place to ask what was going on, but that wouldn't stop her from being curious. Shooting a dismissive glance at Riebe's back, she collected herself and moved down the ramp to stand outside.

As the group of Sith entered the Prime Minister's office, three chairs lowered from the ceiling for them to sit on. The tall Kaminoan dressed in the basic Prime Minister's attire sat on his own chair, smiling at the strangers. The Kaminoan who had escorted them gave out their names.

"Welcome. Why do you bring unnecessary destruction, my friends?"
"I am truly sorry, but if not for the few firefights between your men and mine, the epublic would think you were dealing with us from your own free will and they would probably retaliate swiftly"
"Indeed... What is on your mind?"
"I need clones. I bring you a great Prime Clone and the resources you need to build the facilities needed for the cloning process"
"And?"
"The Dominion is willing to protect you from any threat, let it be the Republic, the Empire or anyone else you might think of. We can give you all the money you need, as long as you keep the clones coming. If it is possible, ould you also accelerate the speed of the cloning?"
"Our research has improved under the years of Palpatine. We can now raise a clone to it's 20s in 8 years"
"Faster?"
"If you can bring us some Spaarti cylinders, we might be able to modify our cloning tanks"
"Thank you. I will get a word around to my merchants and smugglers to bring you everything you need"
"It was good to meet you, Lord Tepe"
"It was good to meet you too, Prime Minister Lama Su"

So the group of Sith left again and the Kaminoan started escorting them again. Tepe took out his comlink to inform the Colonel to give out the orders to establish a base and stop all firefights

Strider sighed, then decided to finally confide in Riebe.

I feel my...darker tendencies...ones that have previously remained dormant for the longest time, arising within me. It's been taking a huge mental and physical toll on me, I feel as if something inside me is changing...I'm losing more and more control over my thoughts and emotions. My mind has been racing a mile a minute and I can't calm down. I'm not very much like myself right now, and it is frightening.

Strider's eyes for a flash of a moment were filled iwth worry for himself and others. Riebe could see that he truly feared something for once - himself.

The Sith finally got to the landing pads. Tepe looked outside and then at his apprentices.
"You will now go to your own flagships. Kaoin, I hereby declare you the Governor and keeper of Dominion control on Kamino and Rothana. This will add up to your currently governed worlds, and so you now are responsible of 19 worlds in total. Your next target will be to supervise Charna on her next mission" Tepe said and then turned to the female sith.
"Charna, you have currently Ruusan and I hereby also give you the Governorship of Korriban from my worlds. Your future conquers will also be governed by you. And so I wish you to go to Naboo as swiftly as you can and prove yourself. I will join you there after I have the chance" he said and bowed before leaving off with the Kaminoan while the two apprentices left for their fleets onboard their own shuttles. Once they had left, a two-seated fighter with the Colonel onboard set itself down on a landing pad. Tepe came out to greet it and climbed on the second seat. The fighter took off swiftly and headed for the Meditation Sphere where they docked and went inside. The two walked off to the small cockpit that the old Meditation Spheres didn't have and sat down on two empty seats.

"Take me to Ossus"
"Ossus, sire?"
"Yes, captain, Ossus. I know it's the Jedi headquarters, but take me there. I need to speak with Skywalker"
"Yes, Lord"
"You can find me inside the Chamber. When we arrive, cloak the ship and let me know. I need to go inside as a jedi"
"Yes, sir"

And so Tepe left for the Meditation Chamber inside the Sphere. As he entered, a spirit appeared in the middle of the room. The door closed with a hiss and the spirit bowed.
"Hello, Anakin. I had hoped you wouldn't appear to me anymore. I have quite ad enought of you"
"I must say you have done well for yourself, but by killing my son you make a great deal of damage to yourself"
"I'm not going to kill Luke. If I am lucky, I don't have to fight any of the jedi there. I merely want to speak with him, as he is the Grand Master after all. Now begone with you!" Tepe said and waved his hand, almost tearing the spirit of Anakin apart, even if he would do no harm to the actual spirit, but only to it's image. However, the old Darth Vader vanished from his Sphere. The Dark Lord shook his head and stripped himself from his armor. He stripped out of his tunic and changed into an outfit he had not worn for ages. His old Jedi Robes. The robes of a Jedi Consular, even if he used to be more than acknowledged as a Guardian and a master of many styles of combat.

Riebe immediately went to Strider's side and laid a hand on his shoulder. "Never think you're alone, Strider. I don't know how much help I can be, but I'll do whatever I can... whatever you need."

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

Charna bowed respectfully as Tepe gave her orders. Then, as he left, she glanced over at Kaoin. With a slightly smaller bow in his direction, more of a nod of acknowledgment, she contacted her flagship and ordered them to prepare for her arrival. When she arrived, she discovered they'd overprepared.

Since she had traveled to Kamino with Tepe, the crew of Charna's flagship weren't quite sure what to expect. They'd heard horror stories about Kaoin and prepared for the worst. Everything was sparkling clean, crewmen and officers alike were ramrod straight, and the ship's commander, Admiral Vonn nervously welcomed Charna as she left her shuttle in the shuttle bay.

"At ease, Admiral," she said calmly. "Before you snap your back so badly you never walk again."

Confused, the Admiral said, "My Lady?"

Charna laughed. "Admiral, I'm not here to crush you to oblivion at your slightest mistake. Relax. Do your job. Don't expect too much from yourself."

Vonn relaxed slightly. "We've heard stories about Kaoin..." he began. Charna cut him off.

"Well, I'm not Kaoin," she said. "And I want you to do your best work. I do not want you to be afraid of me. We're on the same side here, Admiral. Never forget that."

Breaking into a smile, the Admiral nodded. "Thank you, Lady Charna."

"A pleasure to set you at ease, Admiral," she answered pleasantly. "Now take me to the bridge. We're heading to Naboo and I want to see my bridge crew in action."

Vonn complied readily, leading her to the bridge. And within ten minutes, the full crew knew their leader would not be what they feared.

((Sorry about this time jump, but you can still stick on your times. I need someone to be Luke so this doesn't seem like godmodding or something))

As the Sith Meditation Sphere jumped out of hyperspace, the Dark Lord was informed immediately. He swiftly managed to cover up his force sign and put on the hood of the robe. The Sphere cloaked before the scanners of the Praxeum could notice it and then the Sith Lord entered the fighter docked onto the Sphere and left for the planet in full jedi garb. He chuckled as the defences let him pass and land on a landing platform near the Praxeum. As the fighter landed, the Sith inside ven further pushed his limits into seeming like your ordinary jedi. He pushed all emotions away from himself and sought out the inner peace that made a man jedi. Indeed, by doing this, the Sith Council hiding in the Cloak of the Sith got quite anctious, as they thought that one of their best strategists had been turned. However, this mattered not to Tepe as he jumped out of the fighter and headed out to see Luke.

As he entered the Praxeum, he and Katarn changed looks, even if he could not see his face from under his hood. He was, however, let inside the Praxeum and walked freely towards the quarters of Skywalker. As he finally managed to enter, he disturbed a meeting with two other masters. He bowed and waited while Luke finished his matters and then walked forwards and past the pair of masters. As he got close to the Jedi Grand Master, he stripped from his hood and smiled. He knew Luke had senced who he was as soon as he entered the room, but now it was certain to the Jedi that he was face-to-face with the Dark Lord of the Sith just like he had once before.
"I did not come to fight you, nor your jedi. I came here because I want answers. Will you accept my proposal or not? What is the place of the Jedi in this conflict that is forming between my Dominion and the Republic? Will the jedi become once again Generals or will they stand back? I have an endless source of questions. Let's see about your anwers if they are just as endless" the Dark Lord said and smiled at the Jedi Master


"Our posturings, our imagined self-importance,
the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe,
are challenged by this point of pale light.
Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark.
In our obscurity in all this vastness there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.

Strider nodded, and although struggled to do so, found a center of calm within himself, slowly with difficulty bringing his mind back into full focus. He responded to Riebe, "Let's get on with this - action will deter whatever is plaguing my thoughts."

Luke sighed wearily. "I cannot promise the actions of Jedi on Coruscant. Many of them are having a hard time believing the Sith Hunters were not responsible for the killing of the Council there. All of them are determined to begin a war with your Dominion." He closed his eyes. "If they get far enough into their planning, even I cannot stop them For this reason I am leaving for Coruscant tonight. They've not had a visit from me in several months and it might shake their resolve."

He sighed again and looked at Tepe. "If I can stop it, there will be no Jedi Generals in the New Republic. We are peacekeepers, not warriors. But I don't think there's much I can say that'll help. The situation is growing further against us... again. Senators think we aren't doing our job by letting you reclaim Sith territory. Leia is doing what she can to keep them organized, but..." He sadly shook his head.

"Democracy is difficult where so many have different opinions. The Senate is torn between wanting the Jedi to be warriors, anger at the New Republic for being slow with the dispatch of their fleets, and terror at what the Sith Dominion might be doing to their worlds. Their mind is divided and it doesn't matter how strong a leader Leia can be." He smiled slightly. "I think your Dominion may be fully in place before they can agree on something to do."

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

Riebe nodded and headed down into the city. Though she had worked with the Jedi extensively in these last several years, she'd still found it useful to keep a network of informants. There were several to choose from on Nar Shaddaa and Riebe was sure that, once she got them all in a room together, they could come up with a fairly complete explanation as to where the Sith Dominion, its leader, and others involved in it were.

They went through the city in silence, Riebe still concerned for Strider. But she said nothing further about it. They reached a small apartment that was supposed to be Riebe's and kicked the three spice users out. There, Riebe called her informants and told them all to come to her apartment as quickly as possible. All of them complained, but they all agreed to do as she ordered.

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

Charna's fleet came out of hyperspace over Naboo and fanned out to create a blockade. The reigning queen didn't need to be told what was happening; she already knew. So when Charna hailed the palace, she answered long enough to say, "Do your worst."

Calling back what she remembered of the attack at Kamino, Charna did just that. Cities were burned, but civilians were not harmed. Three days passed. Then, surrounded by soldiers, Charna entered the palace. In the throne room, she found the queen sitting defiantly, as if trying to hold on to her throne as long as she possibly could.

"I suppose you came to take me away," she spat bitterly. "To lock me up and alter our government... to begin a dictatorship."

Charna shook her head. "Not really," she countered. "The Sith Dominion is now in control of this planet... but that doesn't mean we are getting rid of you. Your people love you. Therefore, so do we. Rules of government will be changed. For example, you will remain queen until death. Then, the people will choose another. You will be left entirely to your own decisions. The Dominion will fund repairs. In less than a month, Naboo will be back to what it was. And, if the New Republic tries to take you back, we'll defend you."

"What's in it for you?" the queen demanded suspiciously. Charna smiled.

"A military outpost," she answered. "Shipyards, training grounds... you look worried. You shouldn't be. Everything we build for the Dominion here will be well out of your sight." She switched on a map of the planet and pointed to a location far from any civilization. "Here. This will be our little Sith Dominion outpost. We'll hold open recruitment. If any of your people wish to help us, they'll be well paid to do so."

"You've thought through everything, haven't you?" the queen muttered. Charna chuckled.

"I had a long flight and three days' skirmishes to figure it out," she agreed. "Shall I hand these papers over for your signature?"

"What if I refuse?" the queen wanted to know. Charna smiled pleasantly.

"Then we'll take Naboo by force without harming anyone," she answered. "And we'll remove you from power, hunting until we find a queen who'll accept our offer."

"Then I have no choice," the woman whispered, defeated.

"Not if you want to stay where you are," Charna agreed, handing over the papers. The queen signed them and Charna left to make preparations. As she left, the queen ordered her speech writer to come up with something to explain the situation without angering the Sith.

Strider stepped away from the group and activated his lightsaber, getting all of their attention easily. "While we wait for their arrival..." Strider started, "Might as well teach you some new lightsaber techniques," he finished.

With that, he taught them a few clever moves that would change the tide of a duel, then taught them some techniques for fighting multiple opponents as well. "Remember to keep your mind focused," he added at the end, looking at the other Hunters, then up at Riebe. "You're much faster learners than Riebe was," Strider said with a joking grin.

"Unfortunately, old friend, my Dominion is already very much in place. I come here from Kamino which is currently being reconstructed ino it's former glory. Your Senate thinks I am just a new Palpatine, but I am trying to rebuild the cultures of the conquered planets. I must say that I have the Sith way of making things unnatural, but if you would see how I have boosted commerce and culture of the worlds I control..." Tepe said and sighed, shaking his head.

"However, as I have promised, Ossus is safe. I do not care if your jedi attack the Dominion or not, but Ossus will be a safe haven for the jedi. My ships will not pass into your athmosphere unless it is very necessary in such cases as a crash landing" Tepe said and smiled, taking a step forwards and taking a box from the inside of his robes. The Sith nodded for Luke to take it.

"It is something your father managed to give me when he first appeared to me. It is the wedding rings of your father and your mother. He wished you to have these" Darth Tepe said and gave the box to the jedi.
"I hope you can convince the Senate to send a group to see the worlds under my control to see if the Dominion is so full of war that they think. They can even come under false identitites if they wish"

Riebe laughed. "Maybe I was just... more stubborn," she joked.

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

Luke took the box in silence and opened it carefully to look inside. After several long moments of silence, he looked again at Tepe.

"I have sensed fear on nearby planets," he said quietly. "The fear is first. It comes when you first begin to invade. Shortly thereafter, fear is replaced by wary watchfulness. By the time your takeover is complete, I sense mostly satisfaction." He smiled sadly. "I know you are not destroying these worlds. But you make it appear that you are. Do you want a conflict with the New Republic?"

Without waiting for an answer, he shook his head slowly. "I will do everything I can to prevent conflict. But I fear the appearance of your takeovers will cause the New Republic to attempt retaliation."

Strider deactivated his blade, then began teaching them some interesting Force techniques, such as restraining one's limbs or body with the Force. After that, he smiled, and decided to teach them the secret of his fame of holding the highest record in the Blindfold Test of the Jedi Academy. "This won't help you beat that score - but it'll give you some insight as to how I did it," he said with a grin. He taught them to bring their mind to a center of focus, one that almost created what seemed to be a controlled adrenaline rush, in which they would see things almost slightly slower as a result of heightened senses.

Strider drew his lightsaber once more, and looking at Katherine, who nodded in response, knowing he was to use her as the example, lunged forward at her with the blade. Katherine used what he taught her, and dodged the swift lunge at her chest. The other Hunters saw a blur, almost fast enough to leave behind an after-image of where she had last been standing. With that, Strider instructed them to practice on one another, insuring them to keep their lightsabers on training level for the time being, still waiting for the arrival of Riebe's informants.

Tepe laughted at Luke and took a step back from the jedi master as if starting to leave. Actually, he was about to leave and faced the door before he suddenly turned around and looked at him.
"The Republic will lose if they attack the Sith Dominion, but I have no intention to crush the Republic... yet" he said and grinned at Luke before continuing again to the door. Befor he opened the doors, he looked behind hiself and smiled.

"It think the only chance you have of defeating the Dominion is throught the newly formed Sith Hunters. Riebe and Strider are training new recruits for the order. I trust you, my friend, but I do not trust them. They do not care who is an old friend in battle. They do what they were trained to do... brainwashed to do. It would be better for all if they would not be, but they unfortunately are. Give this to Riebe the next time you meet her. Do not say it is from me... she will know who it's from" he said and placed a holodisc on the floor. It would be the proof for clearing the names of the Hunters. The Sith then left and drew his hood on.

When the Sith got to the outside of the Praxeum, he exchanged another look with Kyle, this time smiling. The jedi suddenly realized who he was and rushed to see if Luke was alright. Tepe swiftly boarded the fighter, removed his hood and left for space where the Sith Meditation Sphere waited for him. As the fighter started docking sequence, the Meditation Sphere uncloaked and the Jedi Praxeum suddenly went into full alert. A Sith had invaded their Praxeum without nobody noticing it. The fighter docked quickly and the Sphere left for Naboo before the Jedi pilots were even off the ground to attack the threat. As Tepe entered the cockpit, he smiled to the colonel and nodded.
"It has been done. Give out Order 104-AT-556. I want every planet peaceful and ready with bases and other planetary defences as soon as you can get them. And continue to invade the Sith Space. It is not yet fully under my control. And hurry with it" he said before leaving for the Meditation Chamber to change clothes and meditate.

------

((This part will introduce a Firrerreo male named Danera Taiat, formerly a Jedi and a "Lost Twenty" of the New Jedi Order, now a mercenary. This also means his statue is in the Coruscant Jedi Temple, so the Jedi might know him))

The first contact of Riebe's entered the house with a pair of mercenaries. The other stood tall with golden skin and two-tone hair. His face had been tattooed with tribal tattoos showing his accomplishments in a similiar way that the Mirialans showed them. The mercenary was wearing a brown body armor with a green tunic to cover his upper torso and a utility belt tightly around his waist. A modified S-5 Heavy Blaster Pistol hung on his side and a rarely used lightsaber on the other side. The cuffs he wore were the controls to his suit that was armed to the teeth even if it didn't look like it and it could also engage many defences like energy shields for example. There were also repulsors attatched to his boots so he could avoid the clumsy nature of the jetpack but still fly off limited times. As the door closed behind them, the Mercenary adjusted his cape so it was hanging on his other side, covering the lightsaber but leaving the other half of him open for public view.

The man's hand, the one without the cape covering it, went to the utility belt near his blaster while his eyes looked at the group of Sith Hunters with keen eyes. He saw the lightsabers activated and got ready to switch on the energy shield which would shield him a bit more as a plus to the small amount of cortosis inside his body armor. A smug smile appeared on his lips as he followed his current employer further inside. You could see he meant business from the way his eyes shone in the dim light. His fellow mercenary was a Zeltron female who could draw the looks of the male hunters quite easily while probing the atmophere of the room. The pair was quite well chosen as both would know beforehand if the thing was a trap and their emplyer wouldn't have to risk it. As the employer approached Riebe, the Firrerreo waked to the other side of the room, observing the training Sith Hunter. If you had seen his lightsaber, you could see it as being a curved one, which was easy to be then connected with Makashi.

((Riebe would know him, since she was in and out of the Temple frequently except during the time between RotS and ANH, and from 500 years before TPM to a year or two before TPM.))

"Sabers dead," Riebe ordered, quickly and easily falling into some of the phrases the Sith Hunters had taken to using. "Friendlies approach."

Then, recognition flashed across her face. To her informant, she said, "Hiring lost Jedi, are you, Janlin?" Then, her eyes flicked to the Firrerreo. "Or perhaps it's the other way 'round."

She executed a slightly mocking bow to him. "Danera Taiat, isn't it?"

"He's a mercenary," Janlin protested. "Quite a good one, too. How do you know him?"

Riebe waved a hand dismissively. "Never mind that. Please. Have a seat. I've invited two more."

Only a few minutes later, the other two arrived. All three informants glared daggers at one another until Riebe ordered them to stop. Then, they exchanged furtive menacing glances.

"You're all here for the same reason," she told them. "I want information on the Sith Dominion. As much as you have. I realize there will be some overlap of knowledge, but there will also be things that one of you knows that the others don't."

"That's unlikely," Janlin interrupted, scratching his head.

"Highly unlikely," the woman informant sitting next to him said, glaring at him.

"More likely than you'd be willing to admit, Tanik," Riebe said. "So start talking. Janlin, you go first."

((Tepe, I want you to control the informants now... seeing as you know everything there is to know about your Sith Dominion and what you want my Hunters to know. ))

Strider's blade was off instantly, and he looked over the informants. Surely enough, they would provide ample information, he thought, but he really disliked third parties when dealing with such matters. He didn't complain however, and simply walked and stood behind Riebe, his arms crossed, leaned against the wall, watching over all three informants and the mercenaries with his penetrating blue eyes.

As Danera walked past Riebe she mentioned his name. The man cringed and looked at the Hunter.
"Never say my name out loud. It's against my race's beliefs" he mentioned and then continued his way until he was by the wall, leaning onto it and watching the scene.

"Well, a merchant just arrived claiming that the Dominion attacked Kamino and Rothana, but nobody else has yet managed to confirm that. Naboo is also under siege with at least one of the Sith overlooking the conqering" Janlin said but the woman next to him gave out a mocking laught.
"You have terrible spies, Janlin" she said before continuing, "The Dominion is being careful of infiltrators, but I happen to know that Tepe went off to meet Skywalker a day ago or so. I also know that the people seem quite happy about the Dominion ruling them. No rebellion has started yet. I would know about it" she said and shrugged a bit helplessly. The last informant, a Toydarian male, shook his head at the others.
"The Sith are on Naboo" he said in his own litte accent, knowing what the Sith Hunters wanted to know.
"But I wouldn't support your decisin if you plan on going there. Skywalker is heading for Coruscant after a visit from Darth Tepe. He is going to meet the Senate and the President and soon we will see how all unfolds in the Republic and if the Jedi choose a war. Riebe, I know how you feel about Coruscant now, but if you want to stop the way this is going, it would posibly be best to go meet the senate" the Toydarian said and flapped his wings anxiously.

------

Tepe's Sphere jumped out of hyperspace. He could feel everything going on on the planet. Small revolts, nothing much. The soldiers were still being as friendly to the civilians as they could. The Dark Lord smiled as the Sphere started landing after making themselves known. As they landed as near to the city as they could, a group of soldiers was already securing the way to the Palace. However, Tepe did not wake anywhere after going down the rampand smelling the air. He turned to his colonel and nodded.

"Take over and connect with both of my apprentices. Tell them to get to the Sphere as soon as they can. We have some business to do with the Senate" the Dark Lord said and the Colonel bowed, rushing off towards the palace to meet the Sith apprentices. Eventually after the Sith had boarded the Sphere with an additional two squads for security, it left off towards Coruscant where the Sith would meet the Senate and Skywalker in an attempt to avoid a war, even if he knew it would be quite useless now that the Senate was full of megalomaniac, thick-headed bureucrats again. At least the final word wa on Leia who was the chief-of-state and held the command of the New Republic Fleets

Riebe flinched at the mention of speaking to the Senate.

"They've had their doubts about the Jedi," she murmured. "But they're downright terrified of the Sith Hunters."

Then, she smiled slowly. "But perhaps we can work that to our advantage. The Sith Hunters are rebuilding. We've recruited, which is a thing we've not done in... well, ever."

She nodded slowly. "We will address the Senate." To her informants, she said, "You can go."

But she stopped Danera before he could leave. "I will respect the beliefs of your race and never again call you by name, but I also want to know why you're working for scum like Janlin. We both know you're capable of more."

Strider smirked at the thought of the Senate quivering in fear of the Sith Hunters. This wasn't something in particular he wasn't supposed to find amusing, but for some reason couldn't help himself. It wasn't the power...was it? Strider shook his head, getting this thought from his mind. No, it was merely just the influence they held. The increased numbers would surely be extremely grabbing to the Senate's attention...

But all that fear caused by only a few individuals... a voice whispered in Strider's head.

Strider clenched his fist and drove the thought back. He would not stand to find himself guilty of indulging in the fear of others.

Danera laughted andlooked the female Sith Hunter in the eyes. She could see his thoughts, but he needed to say them also to the others.
"I know I am better than an escort to scum like him, but he paid me the most at the time. I'm not a jedi anymore, Riebe, and I never will. I'm just a mercenary now" he said before turning to see the others and then back at her.
"I know what you are thinking. You better put some cash on the table before you think I would join you on your little quest" he said and smirked at her before walking towards the door slowly, waiting for a response from the Hunters.

------

A Personal Luxury Yacht 5000-class yacht jumped out of hyperspace bearing the Sith Dominion colours and banner. The Sphere had been changed to this on Tibrin. A squadron of I-BEAMs jumped out of hyperspace just after it and passed the Yacht while approaching the planet Coruscant. The Yacht contacted the Coruscant air control, making known that the representatives of the Sith Dominion were arriving. This made a hurry in the air control as they needed to inform the Senate, the Chief-of-state, the Defence forces and everyone else who might even vaguely be concerned of this. However, the first thing they did was give the landing permission to the Yacht. The ships landed on a large landing platform where even the fighters could land without any problem and then made sure everything was allright in the nearby area. The yacht let out a squad of soldiers dressed in dark green robes with a heavy armor under them and a repainted Senate Guard Helmet. All of the soldiers held Force pikes on their shoulders and under the robes they had several concealed weapons, including blasters and possibly even blaster carbines or rifles that were ready for a firefight if one would ensue at any point. Then the Sith stepped out. The Apprentices wore their normal tunics but with the exception that Kaoin's was Dark Blue and Charna's Blood red. Both Apprentices wore capes and had a personal enegry shield on their belts. The Dark Lord himself wore a conqueror's outfit. Now he was not a politician, but the head of state of an Empire. He wore his pitch black Sith Armor with a few spikes added to the shoulder pads, wrists and even the ankles. His lightsabers were hanging from his belt in clear sight while his cape was behind him mostly with only covering his left arm while the right one held his half-open helmet with a similiar brush ontop that the Centurions of the Roman Empire had in a similiar red colour. He looked indeed like a Roman emperor if you would want to draw in the History of Earth. As a transport stopped next to the landing platform, two Coruscant Guards came out and cowered immediately as the Sith approached with their guards. Four of the eight guards went in first, securing the transport from hidden weapons or other threats before giving the signal to the Sith to come in. The rest of the guards then went inside and after them the Coruscant guards. Darth Tepe sat down and looked at his apprentices as he signalled fo them to sit as well.

"When does the Senate gather?" he asked from the Coruscant guards and the other of them approached only to be stopped by one of the Dominion Guards. The Coruscant guard looked up at the tall guard, swallowed and then decided to answer from the distance he was now.
"In two hours, Lord. Master Skywalker will attend also and the Chief-of-State should be present" the guard said and stepped back from the intimidating Dominion Guard.
"Thank you. I assume you are transporting us to the Senate office of the Senator of Tibrin?" Tepe said and looked out at the view of the city.
"Yes, Lord" the guard answered and shifted anxiously.

((Sorry about the character control, but if your characters have anything to ask or comment on, the trip to the office will last a while))

Riebe watched Danera for a moment. Then, glancing to her companions for confirmation, she said, "We are recruiting. If credits are what it's going to take to persuade another potential recruit, well..." She smiled slightly. "I've had two-thousand years to come up with that."

Nodding, she grinned and said, "Name your price. But be quick with it. We really ought to be going. I want to be on Coruscant as soon as possible."

Charna smirked at the discomfort of the guard, but did nothing to further antagonize him. She knew that he was intimidated just by being close to any Sith. Even more so to find that one of them was the Dark Lord himself. She looked out through the tall buildings, waiting quietly and patiently for their trip to be over.


((Would be kind of interesting if the Sith Hunters and the Sith party were in the Senate at the same time, eh, Tepe? And since you time skipped ahead to talk with Skywalker, it's not unlikely that this would happen. Shall we plan on it?))

((Yup. Joe should start responding a bit more so he doesn't drop out. Royal is probably still not allowed on the computer so his characters will just tag along, I guess))

Danera chuckled and shook his head at Riebe.
"You can quite seduce a man now can't you. I'll meet you on the orbit" he said and winked at Riebe before leaving outside. The door closed behind him and the mercenary stepped on his swoop after saying farewell to Janlin and left for a hangar near the bottom levels of the corrupted planet. Only a moment later a heavily modified and armed Royal Air Cruiser. For example, the second cockpit was controlled by an pilot droid, the proton torpedo launcher was removed and several auto-turrets had been placed in it's stead with at least two manual-controlled laser turrets. It had also gotten a slightly new shape as it had been equipped with a quite fast hyperdrive for it's size of a ship. It also had a mirror-surface paintjob and enhanced shields. The Mercenary drifted in space after launchingoff, waiting for the Ragnarok.

------

"Isn't it impressive? How a whole planet can cower from you if you have the will? I heard good news from Naboo. I think I just might like you after all" Tepe said and grinned at the female Sith before looking utside as the transport turned and they could see the Senate building.
"It's such a mess... I remember the Old Republic one. It was so full of glory, but now after all those bombings it's stepped back millenias. A shame really... I liked the old pods" he said and a bit of melancholy filled his voice as he looked on towards the senate. He noticed a familiar ship land on the hanars of the Senate and grinned slightly.
"It seems we aren't the only ones to address the senate with the label 'sith' in our titles" Tepe said to himself and let out a chuckle as the transport speeded forwards and finally landed on the Senate hangar. The Coruscant gyards were first to walk out, then four Dominion guards and the Sith behind them. Finally the rest of the Dominion guards stepped out and let the Coruscant guards get back inside the transport. The Dark Lord looked around, smelled the air and then turned to look at the senators looking at them and then hurrying off to their duties. They hadn't done anything but shown up and they had already caused a stirr on the planet. Tepe sighed and placed the helmet on, pushing a button on the side of it and so closing the vizor of his helmet, so protecting his face while still showing the masculinity of the man quite well

((Well, the thing is, I don't many opportunities to RP...I've been checking the RP every day and then closing the window, because all I can really type is "Kin tagged along as the two Sith Hunters went to various places."))

((lol yeah, sorry I kinda don't leave space. Will try harder ))

Riebe chuckled. "He doesn't waste time, I guess." With a shrug, she gestured upward. "To Coruscant."

On the way to the ship, she dropped back to speak with the newest Sith Hunters.

"Kin, Raek, Katherine, Jahara," she said, addressing them in the order they joined. "We are about to go to Coruscant. I'm going to be very blunt here. We are going to intimidate the Senate. As you all were once Jedi, I have to know how you feel about this before we arrive."

((There! Now you've got something to reply to Joe ))

((Yup. Notice also that I mentioned in my last post that the Sith Hunters were landing but that's because of the time jump I made... I think the Sith Hunters should meet the Sith on the way to the Senate Chamber, eh?))

Tepe looked at his guards and nodded as they started the walk towards their reserved podium. They followed a droid down the red-carpeted hallway and past all the senators, most of them staying to look at them before scurrying off. The jedi that were accompanying Luke, even if Luke was not there at the time, looked at the Sith quite menacingly like they would just want to end this right there. Tepe gave a smirk towards the jedi, which drove the jedi even more towards the edge. It would be quite fun for a change to see his guards in action, especially towards the jedi. However, it semed that the jedi stood back as the Sith passed and would wait for their turn at the Sith, hoping their turn would be soon

((Danke.))

Kin's eyes widened, and then his expression became instantly normal. "How do we intend to go about doing that?" Kin asked casually.

Strider chuckled, a glint in his eye showing he was taking all too much enjoyment at the thought of intimidating the Senate.

"Easy. We're all Sith Hunters. All we have to do is announce our arrival and wish our voice to be heard. Word of the rumor that we killed the Council on Coruscant has already spread like wildfire. Just the mention of our names in the Senate Chambers will inspire fear. If we could take down the powerful Jedi Masters, as they think we supposedly did, then they all know very well what we are capable of in a room full of people who lack Force Sensitivity," the Sith Hunter explained, the glint still in his eye, unable to hide a half smirk.

Strider was still trying to repress these thoughts. Sure, it was an ample tactic, but he'd really wish he wasn't taking so much enjoyment in it. It was like him to be a little rough with getting information out of any hostages or captives as a Sith Hunter, or even as a Jedi, but to blatantly outright enjoy that fear he inspired to this level, was pushing it a bit for his comfort.

Riebe glanced at Strider for a long moment before nodding. "That's exactly it," she agreed. "Further questions? Any comments?"

Jahara shifted uncomfortably. "A Jedi would not intentionally intimidate anyone," she murmured. Riebe smiled kindly.

"But we are not Jedi," she answered. "Jahara, I have taken it upon myself to train you in the ways of the Sith Hunters. One of the primary things I've told you to keep in mind is..."

"... that we are Hunters," Jahara finished. "That a hunter hunts relentlessly, that the Dark Side must be conquered and not allowed to conquer you. I know."

"How does it make you feel?" Riebe prodded.

"A little fearful," Jahara admitted. "I've been in Jedi training for several years and have been told repeatedly that the Dark Side is something we ought to avoid. You tell me not to avoid it, but to face it. To use its power for good."

"All things can be used for good," Riebe agreed. And Jahara seemed satisfied.

"Other questions?" Riebe challenged.
