Part 1

The General's top lieutenants are all gathered in a circle, sitting down around a holographic layout of the planet. Marked is their underground base-of-operations, along with several fallback points in case they are discovered, and the city itself, with all of its strategic emplacements highlighted.

"They wouldn't bomb their own Citadel," Maro, one of the General's advisers argues. "Even if it were to fall, they wouldn't risk damage to the cities."

"We need the Naval forces to keep Dxun off of us until we've got the city secured," Naomi, another adviser, retorts. "We've got a fair amount of pilots in their ranks. All we need is a bit of a push."

"I can provide that," Miranda chimes in, catching everyone's attention. "We have several operatives in place to bring down their air defenses. We-"

"Miranda is correct," Garrius interrupts, "but our infiltrators can do more than bring down the guns. They can turn them against the Loyalist craft. We can win a decisive victory in the skies and then turn our attention to the ground."

Part 2

The General nods and glances towards Naomi. "Are our men in position?"

She nods. "We have many troops in the city, and we'll be able to land more once the AA guns are turned against the Loyalists. We've got a dozen dropships here and the men to fill all of them."

"Good," the General nods. "Once Kol realizes the extent of our attack, he will retreat within the Citadel and set up defenses to prevent us from advancing. He will try to turn this into a battle of attrition, which we cannot afford. Miranda?"

"Yes sir," she answers.

"I want you and Garrius to make sure we have two operatives inside the Citadel. Ideally, they should be positioned to disable the main defenses. I don't want assassins. Kol's head is mine to take, and no one else's."

"We'll take care of it," Garrius says.

The General nods. "You're all dismissed. Make your preparations. A believe a week will suffice for our men to be put into position. A small wait compared to what we have had to endure to see this day. Only a little longer, my friends, and we will usher in a new era for Onderon, one that will withstand the storms of time itself.

Part 3

Miranda and Garrius complete their assignment, ordering a pair of operatives to place themselves in a position to disable the Citadel's defenses. They also make the necessary arrangements to ensure the AA guns turn against the Loyalists.

Garrius sighs, smirking. "Can't believe we're actually ready to take back the city," he muses, glancing at Miranda. "You ready for the battle?"

"Almost," she answers. "I just need to do a few personal things before we make our move."

"Fair enough," he replies. "I guess everyone's basically cleaning house on any personal issues they've got left. They won't really matter much when the shooting starts."

"True enough," Miranda responds. "I'm heading to my quarters. See you tomorrow."

Garrius inclines his head and walks off. Miranda lags behind and disappears into a hallways that leads to her quarters. She enters slowly and looks around, sealing her door tightly. The General is paranoid, and for good reason. King Kol has been trying to root out the rebels almost as long as the General's been free. He's tried infiltration, brute force, and even a sizable bounty. Nothing worked. Kol always thought of the short-term, never really considering long-term options. That's what the General believes, at least.

Part 4

Miranda flashes a very small smirk, still nervous about what she's about to do. She's a technical genius, but the General's internal security is extremely well put-together. She's fairly confident she's bypassed it, though. She activates the communication link.

"Cannock requests secure link to nest," she says, waiting a moment. Until it is confirmed that the link is secure, she speaks in pseudo-code words to throw off potential eavesdroppers. Not that code would be much help if someone had listened in.

"You're clear, Miranda. What've you got?" a voice buzzes quietly, but clearly, from the communicator.

"A week is all you've got 'till hell breaks loose. He's got men everywhere, even in the Citadel. He's got men positioned to bring down the AA guns, and he's got forces in the sky ready to attack. He's just drawing it out, savoring the moment at this point. I think he's just about ready to make his move."

There's a pause from the communicator. Another voice comes on, this one familiar. "This is King Kol. You're our operative, correct?"

Part 5

"Yes sir," Miranda answers, slightly surprised to be speaking directly to Onderon's king. "I can confirm that the General is almost ready to make his move. He's going to turn your AA defenses against you, land his troops, secure the skies, disable the Citadel defenses, and take your head. He's made almost all of the preparations he needs."

"Holy hell," she hears the king mutter. "Is there anything you can do on your end? Even with this intel, we'll be hard-pressed to fight this. We just don't have the manpower, especially considering we don't know who we can trust."

Miranda thinks for a moment. "To counter this properly, we need soldiers to match theirs. Their main force consists of a lot of commandos and infiltrators. Then the bulk soldiers."

"We have the bulk, but not the commandos," Kol says. "And without those, we lose the skies, regardless the skill of our pilots. Those AA guns are designed to bring down even the best fliers."

"Sir, have you considered mercenaries?" Miranda asks. She can almost hear Kol curling his lip over the communicator.

Part 6

"I don't like mercenaries," he replies simply. "Too unreliable." A voice outside the communicator's range speaks to the king. "What's that? You think you can set it up? And you're sure these guys are good? Alright." His attention comes back to Miranda. "Keep the General busy on your end. I'm going to see if we can organize some assistance."

"Copy that General," Miranda replies. "I'll stay in touch." She deactivates the communicator and sits back, breathing a sigh of relief.

"No, you won't," a voice behind her says simply. She bolts up and whirls about, just in time to see the blaster pistol Garrius is aiming at her head.

Garrius leaves Miranda's room, holstering the weapon. He had visited her quarters for another reason entirely, and killing her gave him a bit of a sour taste in his mouth. "Damn you, Kol," he snarls. "Why'd you have to get to her?" He activates a communicator linked to the General. "Sir, we have a problem. There's a mole. I dealt with it and the Loyalists are unaware. But we need to accelerate our plans."

Kol has his men set up a secure communication link with Skyblade Station above Fondor. He handles the call personally.

"This is King Kol of Onderon. We request immediate assistance from Artemis and are willing to pay a handsome price for it. Your reputation paints you as professional and reliable. That's what we urgently need right now. Please respond quickly."

Upon reading the urgency in King Kol's speech and confirming him as a potential client several moments pass while the communication between Iziz and Skyblade was being secured and encrypted by the automated security services. Eventually an Artemis client divisions operator responds to the call.

"Artemis Galactic Security, Skyblade offices. This is Sova, at your service. What can I do for you, my lord?"

In the background the operator linked the call to a supervisor realizing the importance of King Kol and the Onderon sector. If Artemis was needed to help a King who inherited a vast portion of the former Hegemony then something big was afoot. Several groups of combat divisions operators were already placed on standby.

AK151 Aug 19 2014, 1:23pm says:

King Kol is slightly annoyed at the fact that the operator he is talking to is so calm, but that is understandable, given they do not fully understand the situation. "As I said, we require immediate assistance. There is a rebellion brewing led by one known as 'The General'. Our intelligence confirms he is amassing a large force to attack Iziz, and has made very thorough preparations. Without help, even with forewarning, we will not be able to stand against him."

"Sir!" someone alerts him, briefly drawing his attention. "Cannock just blacked."

A pit forms in Kol's gut. "If you heard that, it was one of my officers telling me our mole in the General's rebellion was just killed. They know that we are aware of their plans and are going to accelerate them. We have details on their plan of attack, and are drawing up strategies on how to counter them as we speak."

Sova realizes the slight change in tone from King Kol and sympathizes with him but company protocol dictates Artemis has a clear understanding of what their task is before setting out. Their exact goal, the mission parameters, rules of engagement and how much force deployment is allowed in the sovereign territory of another government. That is if King Kol wanted combat support at all. Artemis offers a wide array of services.

"My sincere condolences for your loss. My lord, what do you expect Artemis to do?"

Sensing that the King may lose his temper Sova writes out a code phrase to her supervisor whom in turn relays the message to combat divisions. The message reaches a warship nearest to the Onderon sector, the Myrmidon. The warship and its escorts having just finished an escort contract dropped out of hyperspace over Taris to rearm and refuel at the Tarisian shipyards.

The phrase finally reached the Myrmidon's commander, Shogun. Ready Aurora.

Part 1

Kol motions for one of his advisers to bring him the intelligence they have gathered, along with the strategies they have come up with. "First off, you should understand the situation."

"The General has men in position in our stations. At his word, they will open fire on our fighters and engage them. It's a simple matter to be able to distinguish the two factions once they start shooting, but that isn't the problem. The General's also got infiltrators that will turn the AA guns on our forces in the sky, decimating them."

"Finally, he's got two forces to launch the assault. The first is already in the city. We have no idea who is involved and we won't know until they open fire. What we do know is that there is a second detachment that will be launching from their base of operations. It's underground and shielded, so launching an attack on it directly will do little damage. Our men will be able to hold the attackers for a decent amount of time, but we need the Citadel defenses online. The General's final move is to order his infiltrators to disable the Citadel defenses."

"Sir, we just lost contact with the AACC!" Sova hears in the distance. Kol curses, but otherwise maintains his composure.

"They're going ahead with the attack. I expected to have more time, but we have none now. The AACC is our anti-air control center. I expect any minute now that we'll receive word of the space battle above us."

Part 2

"We'll pay you handsomely, but you will have multiple objectives. My men will all be busy holding back the General's main force. I need your men to infiltrate the AACC and retake control. Once that's done, divert to the Citadel. Your objective will be to prime the defenses and hold the control centers until our men are in place to hold off the General's forces. Once they are in position, they will signal you and you will activate the defenses. That won't win us the battle, but it will give us time to breathe."

"The General's second detachment will land in the main Iziz starport. The landing ships will likely have a large fighter escort. Eliminate these landing ships. Once that is accomplished, land troops in place of the General's and hit his forces from behind. At that point, we will launch a coordinated counterattack from the Citadel and hopefully end this."

"Finally, if at all possible, lend support to our ships in space once the AA turrets have been disabled or reprogrammed."

"I understand you do not operate unless terms are strictly defined. I have given you your objectives. I will allow you to use whatever forces you deem necessary in order to accomplish these objectives. You are to avoid civilian casualties at all costs, and permanent damage to structures in the city is to be avoided as well. Enemies can be disabled or killed at your discretion. If you should chance upon an opportunity to eliminate the General, take it."

Episode I

"One moment." Sova replies.

She relays the information directly to the combat divisions operators on the Myrmidon which has since recalled its men and left Taris. Shogun picks apart the message and cross-references it to create a clear picture of the area of operations.

Shogun has Talon squad form up in the hanger and informs them of their mission now codenamed Operation Insurrection. The squad's modified LAAT/s gunship should allow them to infiltrate the Anti-Air Control Centre covertly. Finally, as the Myrmidon and its escorts leave hyperspace on the far side of Dxun, Shogun sends word to Skyblade that the contract has been accepted and the operation is under way.

Three Dreadnought-class Heavy Cruisers, including the Myrmidon, along with four CR90 Corvettes make up the Artemis force. The remaining vessels of Task Force Zero being elsewhere and likely too far away to lend assistance.

"My lord, I have just received word that Artemis forces have entered the Onderon system. Is there anything else I can do for you?"

Episode II

"Ban, is the larty Ready Aurora?" Titan asked casually as he and the rest of Talon squad boarded the gunship.

"SPS, Talon Lead. Wouldn't want to skip out on the performance bonuses, would I?" Banshee replied.

The LAAT/s closed and locked its side doors to vacuum seal the gunship. Immediately upon leaving the Myrmidon's hangers it engaged its stealth systems and made way for the Onderonian AACC. On the deckplate Talon squad was discussing the upcoming mission and its objectives. Their first objective was to reach and secure the AACC. There were no secondary objectives since Artemis mandate was to focus on the task ahead and complete the contract as agreed upon therefore any and all hostages would have to fend for themselves.

Much to the discomfort of Stims, the squad's medical expert and having formerly served with the Intergalactic B.A.C.T.A Fund agreeing with its humanitarian initiatives. But in the aftermath of the Ruusan conflict being armed and surrounded by armed soldiers seemed a safer way to earn a living whilst still helping people.

Part 2

"Sir!" Naomi calls. "We've got company. Dreadnought heavy cruisers, three of them. Long-range sensors just picked them up. They've got a corvette escort. Far side of Dxun."

The General thinks for a moment. This is unexpected. "Any sign of diversion to the main battle?"

"Not yet," Naomi replies. "They're holding position."

"Then focus on the battle at hand. Status?"

Garrius and Maro are keeping contact with the infiltrators. "AACC is secure. All hostiles eliminated. We have full control of their anti-air defenses."

"Then let's use them," the General says with a feral smirk.

The Iziz anti-air cannons point upwards and open fire, targeting matrices adjusting the position of the turrets to match with Onderon Loyalist fighters and other ships, shredding many of them. The battle begins to tip in the favor of the rebellion.

"What's the status of the city attack?" the General asks.

"First wave successful," Naomi answers, referring to the men already inside the city. "They're pushing back the Onderon guard slowly, but steadily. The spaceport is clear."

The General nods. "Tell our troops to begin their landings. Notify me when we are ready to spring the Citadel trap."

"Yes sir," Naomi salutes. The ship they are on shudders slightly, but for the most part it is flying smooth; an LAAT/s, the General's mobile command center. It flies close to the capital, out of sight, ready to come in and drop the General off once the Citadel defenses have been neutralized.

A dozen LAAT/i gunships blast through the atmosphere, launched from the underground base towards the Iziz spaceport. Each ship is filled with troops. They begin their final approach to the spaceport, the soldiers grasping their weapons in anticipation.

With the battle in space and on the ground under way the Artemis force moves away from Dxun and towards Onderon whilst still out of range of the ground-to-space weapons. Instead it joins up with the Onderonian fleet, or whatever there is of it, and launches one starfighter wing consisting of Razorback and two other squadrons.

The starfighter wing descends to the outskirts of Iziz, avoiding its defences, and the pilots receive an auto-injection of mixed compound of adrenal alacrity and stamina enhancements. Razorback squadron preys on the transports while the other two X-wing squadrons engage the escorts in effort to at least slow down the General's advance and to divide enemy forces.

IC: The Onderonian fleet has regrouped out of range of the main orbital cannons. This has allowed the hostile craft to consolidate and form up. The rebels have four interceptor squadrons, four bomber squadrons, and a CR90 corvette. They stay in range of the orbital defense cannons, waiting for the Onderonians to make their move.
---
"Sir, the new ships have formed up with the remnants of the Onderonian navy," Naomi says. "They're waiting for something."

The General thinks. "They can't make a move with the AA cannons trained on them. They might try to go for the control center. Notify the infiltrators and tell them to be ready."

"Yes sir," Naomi replies.

"General, a wing of starfighters is heading for the transports. X-Wing-class," Garrius calls. "Escort is breaking off to engage."

"Damn," the General curses. "Tell those transports that waving off is not an option. They have to reach the dock. Are there any AD weapons in the area?"

"There are two turrets, heavy repeating laser cannons," Maro responds. "They guard the docks against unwanted visitors. We can use them to cover the transports."

"Do so," the General orders. Maro nods in response.
---
The gunships take evasive maneuvers, their small escort squadron of Z-95 Headhunters engaging the two X-Wing squadrons. The transports try to keep Razorback off using their bubble and aft turrets, along with their missiles if viable.

Two anti-air turrets come to life, one on either side of the docking area. The weapons achieve a targeting solution on Razorback and open fire, launching heavy laser bolts in short bursts as they continually adjust to hit the X-Wings while avoiding the gunships. The transports accelerate towards the dock, taking losses but desperately trying to claw their way to their LZ nonetheless.

Back on the Myrmidon Artemis operators sift through the radio chatter of the X-wings and Onderonian fleet. From the observation room Shogun observes the Mandalorian-made Onderonian fleet and smirks cruelly at its sight. It amused him that many of the warships in their fleet were used by the Mandalorians during the liberation of Onderon.

Razorback squadron veered off from the gunships to avoid losing anyone. The starfighter wing separated into its three squadrons and entered a patrol around Iziz to deny more reinforcements entry to the city and any forces from retreating out of the city. To avoid becoming prey to the CR90 should it descend the X-wings locked their S foils for increased speed and flew at a low altitude to increase distance between the X-wings and the CR90.

Over the AACC the LAAT/s comes to a stand still so that Talon squad can rappel down. The squad is followed by three reconnaissance model Xiphos drones and one support model Xiphos drone. Titan's voice crackles in over Banshee's earpiece. "Thanks for the ride, Ban. Wave Castle."

"Good luck, Talon Lead." Banshee replies with a slight inclination of her head. The LAAT/s takes off, leaving Talon squad to their task.

The squad gathers around the blast door. With no slicer they have to improvise their entry. Acklay plants several explosive charges on the entryway and forms up with the rest of Talon squad to execute a door breach. "Remember," Titan said. "Charge goes off, everyone's woken up. Move fast, cover your buddies and for Kairn's sake Stims shoot first, fix later."

"Go!" The blast door disintegrated and bent inwards. In the blink of an eye two reconnaissance Xiphos drones flew in, one by one. Followed closely Titan on the left, Razor on the right and then finally Stims, Acklay and the support Xiphos, leaving one recon drone to cover Talon squad's back.

IC: "Boss says incoming!" Sorek calls from the terminal where he's constantly combating the Citadel's electronic warfare teams. "Get prepped!"

"You got this end?" Kel asks, fingers still flying on the holographic display; the two are some of the General's top technicians, and this is their specialty.

"Gonna need help keeping these attacks off of us. Those four can probably handle it," Sorek replies.

The other four infiltrators in the bunker are already getting ready, arming themselves with the bunker's blaster rifles. "What I wouldn't give for some mines," one of them comments, setting up in cover a distance from the blast door but with a clear opening to fire down the choke point. One of his comrades sets up next to him, both ready to fire.

"You're in luck," one of the infiltrators responds to the quip of his comrade, prepping a bandolier of grenades and tossing it into the choke point, rigged with a rudimentary remote detonator. The two remaining infiltrators then set up at a diagonal to the end of the choke point, still at a distance, ready to offer fire support to bring down any enemies that get through the initial attack.

The blast door explodes and the infiltrators detonate the grenades, destroying the two sentry drones and blasting the commandos back. Two of the infiltrators flood the choke point with blaster fire, the smoke from the grenade detonation rendering them unable to see the commandos. The other two infiltrators prepare to open fire as soon as enemies are in view.

Anti-air cannons around Iziz attempt to bring down the starfighter wing, repeating laser cannons focusing on the fighters while the heavier guns remain trained on the soon-to-be battle in orbit.

The gunships accelerate and make it to the spaceport; they have suffered losses, losing five of their number, but the rest are fine. They begin landing, offloading their troops and sending them to reinforce the rebels already in the city.

The rebels continue to push the Onderonian guards back, but the Loyalists dig in their heels at every turn, attempting to delay the advance as long as possible. A few anti-infantry vehicles join the fray for the Loyalists, but these valuable assets are warded off by anti-armor weaponry. Automated defenses still fight for the Loyalists, but the rebels are pushing through even those. With reinforcements, their moral heightens.

Back at the Anti-Air Control Centre the Artemis commando unit executes its door breach only to be blasted back. Two reconnaissance model Xiphos drones are lost as shrapnel tears at the combat suit of Razor as he is flung back.

"Flashbug out!" Titan yells to prepare his squad for the blinding effects of the grenade.

The reinforcements form up with the main force and begin to sweep through the city, the united front pushing the guard back. They are almost to the Citadel.

Two of the infiltrators are slightly blinded by the flash but keep firing. The ones at a diagonal open fire when they see the Xiphos shield and the two soldiers it is protecting. "Bring that damned thing down!" one of them calls. Two of the infiltrators lob grenades towards the drone, which detonate, hopefully damaging or disabling the shield. The other two continue to fire.

I wasn't clear enough (I did change the layout a bit from when I initially explained it in my OOC comment), but the two infiltrators that were initially set up at the end of the choke point are now in cover opposite the door, with a clear line-of-sight down the entire choke point.

OOC: Not sure what to imagine here. Maybe a crude Paint drawing could prove helpful?

With all four Talons formed up behind the shield they start to alternate between suppressive fire and reloading allowing for a continuous attack as they push forward step by step.

That is until the enemy infiltrators toss over several thermal detonators. The first takes the support Xiphos aback, the second overloads its shield causing it to retreat behind Talon squad to replenish its energy cells.

The Talons stick to the tunnel walls for some cover and spread themselves out to avoid multiple team members being struck. Acklay returns a favor to the infiltrators by tossing a Electrostatic Charge Detonator to their cover. The resulting explosion should encompass over the cover and shock the infiltrators for a quick kill.

The General notes the fact that his men have almost pushed the enemies back. "Time to make our presence known," he mutters, nodding to Naomi, who signals the pilot. The LAAT/s descends, landing in the secured LZ. The General walks out in battle armor, a blaster rifle with a grenade launcher attachment in his hands, a pistol at his hip, and a vibroknife sheathed and tied around his left arm.

Beside him are Garrius and Maro, Naomi staying behind to coordinate the remainder of the assault. Maro has a simple blaster carbine and a visor capable of zoom from extreme distances, as well as multiple forms of detection, including motion tracking. He sights for Garrius, who has a high-powered blaster sniper rifle and a backup carbine. Both are wearing battle armor.

"Let's end this pathetic excuse for a war," the General calls, marching forward with his two commanders. The LAAT/s launches, returning to the sky.

The ECD detonates and stuns the two infiltrators, the electrical pulses disrupting their muscle control and causing them to spasm uncontrollably, standing rigid out of cover and dropping their weapons.

The two infiltrators on the other side of the room dive for different pieces of cover to avoid the blast; the shockwave knocks them forwards out of cover, but they survive, disoriented. They scramble, trying to get their bearings and find a piece of cover.

"Stims move!" Acklay shouts out, having a clearer picture of the situation from the safety of the energy shield. The medic attempts to jump over a layer of cover, back to his original position but the blast flings him across the room and he lands badly upon the ground.

"Razor, on Stims. Acklay take 'em out!" Titan cries out as he moves over Razor's cover hoping to turn himself into a target so that Razor can reach the fallen squad member and provide Acklay a clear line of fire on the infiltrators.

The remaining three infiltrators take the bait, popping out of cover and opening fire on Titan with their blaster rifles. The two infiltrators knocked back by the previous grenade are still recovering from the shockwave, and thus their accuracy is lessened, but they still fire in Titan's general direction. The other infiltrator is recovered from the ECD completely.

As soon as they expose themselves out of cover they are met with a controlled burst of highly accurate fire from Acklay who aims to kill as quickly as possible that Titan may survive the infiltrator attack.

Razor reaches Stims and finds him to be alive but wounded. Unable to continue fighting because of a fractured bone in his leg. Using the medical gear Stims has on him Razor injected Bacta, pain killers and a hyper adrenal combat stimulus into the medic. Barely conscious but recovering Stims begins to slowly angle himself towards the entrance to the bunker and leans against his cover for support.

The enemy infiltrators, outnumbering the two commandos, manage to hit Titan several times. Possibly with fatal results for the leader of Talon squad.

OOC: Would you care to decide Titan's fate?

Acklay downs the infiltrators, but Titan takes several blaster bolts. None of the hits are lethal, but they burn through his armor. One bolt strikes him in the chest, burning through the skin and searing his ribs. Another catches him in the leg, right above the knee. The final bolt grazes the side of his neck, burning through the armor and singeing his skin.

Titan falls to the ground from his wounds, but is alive, just heavily wounded.

With the infiltrators gone Razor tends to an unconscious Titan while Stims covers the entrance. The reconnaissance Xiphos still has not picked anything up. Using another injection of Bacta taken from Stims, the squad's medic, Razor attempts to get Titan back to his senses.

Meanwhile Acklay enters the control centre and makes contact with Talon squad's overseer.

"Ban, Acklay here. Talon Lead is incapacitated and Stims is no longer fit for combat, requesting casevac. We've taken control of the AACC and I'm activating its turret defence systems. Me and Razor will make our way to the remaining objectives."

"Titan is..." Banshee cut herself off and instead began a new sentence. "Affirmative, Acklay. I'll bring the larty down near the AACC's entrance for casevac."

Acklay with Titan in tow and Razor shouldering Stims mounted the two Talons on the LAAT/s outside and turned their attention to reaching the Citadel. Down two members and two Xiphos Acklay and Razor may have taken a hit to their morale but they still had to fulfil their duty lest Shogun intervenes. Besides, two commandos were just as lethal.

The Citadel's electronic warfare teams quickly regain control of the AA turrets with the securing of the area. The weapons are quickly brought to bear against the Separatist fleet, opening fire on the orbital ships.

In space, a signal is given to the Loyalists to advance. This signal is shared with the Artemis forces in the area. At the same time, they see the Separatist ships taking evasive action as they attempt to avoid the blistering ground-to-space assault. The Loyalist fleet moves in, preparing to mop of the remainder of the Separatists.

Acklay and Razor have a clear line to the Citadel, as the area they are in has not yet fallen into enemy hands. However, the Onderonian guard is being pushed back steadily, and the two commandos do not have much time to waste.

The General notices the AA guns opening fire again, and receives word that they have come back under Loyalist control. "Let's get moving, people! We need to push them back to the Citadel, now!" At his urging, the men surge forward, their efforts redoubled. They begin to push the troops back quickly, the General, covered by his two best operatives, on the front lines, blade in one hand and rifle in the other, carving through men savagely.

With the defences of Iziz once again under control of the loyalists the patrolling starfighter wing redirects to the city and locks S foils in attack position. Their explicit orders are to avoid close air support and instead take out enemy transports and starfighters to cut off a retreat and clear the way for Artemis gunship transports to reinforce the loyalist ground forces.

The Artemis force in orbit provide support for the loyalist fleet and engage the separatist ships at range. Dreadnoughts led by the Myrmidon engage the CR90 whilst Artemis' own corvettes hang back around the heavy cruisers to protect against enemy starfighters.

Back on the ground the two commandos of Talon squad separate to reach their targets. Acklay and the support Xiphos make way for the control centre that commands the automated defences while Razor and the reconnaissance Xiphos diver tot the control centre of the blast doors and force fields.

Whereas Acklay keeps his Xiphos close in case he will require its shield, Razor sends his recon drone forward to scout out enemy positions at his objective.

The two commandos see the Loyalist forces holding the line against the advancing rebel forces, slowly being pushed back. Neither group has reached the Citadel yet, but the Loyalists are getting close to its main gates. The commandos hurry, entering the massive building; there are two stations, one on either side of the palace. One controls the blast doors and force fields, and the other controls the auto turrets inside and outside the Citadel. They must split up to secure the two areas.

The Separatist forces in space are quickly overwhelmed by the barrage from the ground and from the renewed attack from the Loyalist forces. The corvette is torn apart by a combination of heavy ground-to-space weaponry and the artillery from the Dreadnoughts. Without the cover of the corvettes, the fighters are quickly decimated.

The Separatist starfighters launch but are quickly brought down by the combination of the Artemis wing and smaller AA emplacements in the city. Razorback's bombing equipment easily decimates the stationary transports as they finish offloading the last of their troops.

Acklay reaches the automated defense systems control centre just as Razor arrives at the blast door and force field control centre. Before Acklay breaches into the room he makes the support Xiphos project its shield generator but for Razor he has to sent his recon drone ahead to see if the way is clear.

From the Artemis force in orbit several transports are launched carrying squads of Phantoms, Xiphos and AAC-2 hovertanks including Reaper Company. The transports are escorted by the Artemis starfighter wing.

Description

The General gazes at the planetary diagram. Markings on the three-dimensional map show the locations of his gathered forces. For almost a year he had been planning this attack, planning to besiege Iziz. He had killed many men, and even sacrificed his own, to get to this point. "Miranda?" he calls, and a uniformed woman approaches, his second-in-command.

"What is it, sir?" she asks, glancing at the map. The question is a formality. She knows what is coming.

The General straightens his back as if he were making a formal proclamation. Might as well have been. "Gather the strategists. It's time for us to reclaim our city."

"Yes sir," Miranda nods and walks off. The General's eyes narrows as they fall on the holographic projection of the capital city. King Kol, the so-called ruler of Onderon, the rebel who rose to power on the coattails of the damnable Mandalorians.

"Now it's our turn," the General snarls, turning and walking off to meet his advisers.

OOC: Chose the picture for old time's sake. Ori`verda will know what I'm referring to, despite the fact that none of us really want to be reminded of it.

xD

Ori: Right in the feels!
