*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*


Vader's wife was very pregnant when she died 19 years ago. All of a sudden a 19 year old who is very strong in the force and has a distinct resembalance to him in his younger days rolls in from Vader's home planet with his old Master Obi-Wan (Who was the ONLY other person preset at the time his wife died. And to boot, the kid's last name is Skywalker.

So in answer to your question, he knew Luke was his son because his name is Darth Vader, and not Darth Retard.

*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.*

((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:

Hard Arm

I

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.

((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.

*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.))

((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...))

((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 dodges*

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.*

K'Warra.

----------

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*

((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.'>

Drago: My Lord, catch!

Flax: You have exactly two seconds to give me a reason to cause 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........*
FOOOOOOOOL!!!!
*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.*

DODGE...THIS!!!

*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...*

((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...

*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.*

((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!

Duncan: Really?

*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*

...MIND!

*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*

*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.

Nothing.

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.*

*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.

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!

((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.

((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.))

[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]

((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.))

((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

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*

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 redwinggreen7@yahoo.com 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...

Gilian: What?

*Rwos struggles to speak further* They got...what...they wanted.

*Rwos' eyes close. He drops off into unconsciousness*

((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.))


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

Jedi Profiles:

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.

Bias: Warrior/philosipher

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.

Bias: Healer/Seer

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.

Bias: Warrior.

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.

Saber forms:

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.
