AK151

Legend has it that I joined

You've reached the profile of AK151. How you wandered upon this profile, I do not know, and I sincerely apologize for your misfortune. Should you decide to stay and have a look around, you'll find writing (some decent, but most pretty bad), (mostly) failed experiments, and perhaps some music. You may also happen across some fo-Star Wars stuff, much of which I keep around as a lesson to myself in how to avoid being embarrassingly over-the-top and ridiculous. It exists primarily for the currently ongoing Star Wars role-playing group (yes, there is a somewhat-thriving Star Wars RP here, believe it or not). Anyways, enjoy your stay, have a nice day, and, as always, have fun!

AK151 @ Into the Maw: The Dragon Fang

Long-ranged missiles weave through the asteroids and impact the damaged Imperial ships, causing more damage. The Grim Shadow detects a rather large swarm of energy signatures approaching the fleet: starfighters.

The barrage of missiles continues to pour down upon the Enclave forces, as does the long-ranged turbolaser fire. Some of the missile clusters change their courses and target the strikecraft, detonating in the midst of the fighters and damaging any ships nearby.

OOC: As mentioned, the asteroid field is much denser than was initially thought. That and the mines are rather strong, each one possessing a not insignificant amount of destructive potential. They wouldn't do too much damage normally, but the shields of the ships are disabled, which results in a significant amount of damage.

OOC: M'kay, I think the event's lasted long enough. I personally have things I want to do with my character, and I'm sure Branden would like the Empire to have its leader back.

IC: Nym does what he can to survive the event to its conclusion, at some point acquiring evidence of the Crimson Skull's death. Might as well take it. Near the end, he finds away to either concede and fold or leave entirely, avoiding the publicity garnered from becoming the victor of the event.

OOC: Last minute implies that hyperspace travel is instantaneous, which it isn't. The asteroid field doesn't offer many alternate entrances in any case.

OOC: As I said, its effectiveness is mainly due to how sudden it is. It wouldn't take long at all to cut through the jamming. Just long enough for the asteroids to get into position.

AK151 @ Into the Maw: The Dragon Fang

The Enclave forces are ripped out of hyperspace a good distance from their destination; they are immediately beset upon by long-range missiles and turbolasers. Sensors are jammed, as are communications.

Meanwhile, sensors and targeting systems, as well as communications, are suddenly jammed for the Imperials once they've made it well into the field. Only the Grim Shadow is able to detect the dozen asteroids, previously moved out of the way and forgotten in a field far, far denser than expected, as they fire short, powerful bursts from thrusters to get close to the vanguard. Before the battlecruiser can adjust its firing arc to the side or warn the other ships of the coalition about the imminent flanking attack, six of the asteroids detonate, releasing an electromagnetic ion pulse that severely depletes the shields of the vanguard. The next six asteroids, hardened to protect against such pulses, detonate immediately afterwards, releasing devastating shockwaves throughout the vanguard that wreck havoc, incinerating fighters outright and severely damaging even some capital ships. Only the Republic forces, hanging back and taking up the rear, are unaffected by the sudden ambush.

The radiation floods the sensors of the surviving starships, effectively blinding them for a time.

The coalition forces emerge from hyperspace in front of an asteroid field. Their scanners can't pick up anything past it, and there doesn't seem to be anything in the vicinity. The three Preliators form up with the Imperial capital ships to help move the asteroids aside and clear a path to the shipyard.

"Then we shall commence."

The Hegemony capital ships form up and prepare to jump to hyperspace. Final coordinates are given to the coalition forces. The capital ships, primarily those of the Imperials, as suggested, will form a vanguard to keep the asteroids at bay; intelligence suggests the field isn't particularly dense, which means that it shouldn't be too difficult to navigate.

There is a pause to allow for any final preparations. If there are none to be made, and if the rest of the ships are ready, the order is given to jump into hyperspace.

There's a ping on Golem's sensors. Something's approaching. Too small to be an assault walker, but too large to be infantry, or even a tank. It's moving slowly, deliberately, but its signature is almost like that of a starfighter.

OOC: Well Ten, if the Enclave had decided to join in beforehand, we could have included them in the planning. As it is, now we have to adjust our plans accordingly.

xD

IC: A channel is opened to everyone in the coalition. "This is the Preliator. Data from the previous briefing is being sent to the Nexus Enclave as we speak, to get them up to speed. As for the battle plan, the diversionary force is exactly that: a diversion. Our priority is being enough of a threat to draw the attention of the hostile defenses away from the Dragon Fang. They'll have CGTs active, I expect, so sneaking around isn't an option. It's imperative that the infiltration teams hold until we've given them an opening. It's also worth noting that we should do everything we can to keep the Hutts from doubling back and destroying the infiltrator ships after they've docked, so we keep escape routes open."

More data is sent to the groups with rough details regarding the battlefield. "Based on our latest intelligence, the Dragon Fang is berthed in a shipyard, defended closely by somewhere around three or four dozen ships; one of the largest coalitions of gathered Hutt forces we've ever seen. The Imperials had a good plan, using one fleet to cover the infiltrators while they move in to dock with the Dragon Fang."

"If you look closely, you'll notice the asteroid field surrounding the shipyard. It's a deterrent to keep enemy ships from dropping out of hyperspace right next to the dreadnought. We don't want to get caught in there. Once we make our entrance, it won't be long before the Hutts scramble everything they've got, and if that force reaches us while we're navigating the field, we'll be in a bad spot."

There's a small pause, in case any of the commanders wish to interject and add something.

AK151 @ Finding the Prime Clone

Nym decides to go back and investigate the area where he and Reaper encountered the Crimson Skull, to see if there is anything they might have missed. He takes the same precautions he took in his advance and movement through the city. "The Skull gave us a lot of cryptic nonsense before Reaper killed him," he tells Rirretu. "I'm going to take another look over where we found him. Watch our backs."

Fold space... how quaint. The bullet cleaves through thin air, impacting and crumpling the think durasteel wall behind Korhol, causing the hangar to shudder slightly.

Aaron doesn't pay attention to that, however. He senses his old apprentice above him as he flips over to get a good shot. The space between Aaron's position and the area right behind Korhol halves, and then halves again, and continues to do so until it's infinitesimal and Aaron is parallel with his old apprentice. He doesn't even have to shift his position to slam his elbow back against Korhol. The impact is augmented with a shockwave strong enough to send him flying.

No hostiles make a move against the Arbiter; it seems their orders to stay back hold. It would not be a stretch for the eerie lull to put Deus on edge and alert him to some other potential threat the insurrectionists are giving a wide berth. For the moment, however, nothing moves forward to engage him.

Aaron lowers his pistol slightly to compensate for Korhol's movement and fires again, dead-center towards his old apprentice. His previous dodge leaves him in a very vulnerable state, despite his offensive.

With his free hand, Aaron weaves a rudimentary conical barrier to ward away any shrapnel; as he has been moving back, the scattershots should have less effect overall.

Nym advances slowly and cautiously, trying to familiarize his senses with the mire of holograms so as to see through and past them more easily. He makes sure to stay in cover, and is wary of the fact that their enemy could be changing positions. There is little they can currently do at the moment.

He succeeds in striking the weapon; instead of holding onto it, Aaron lets it go, taking the time to place a perfect shot with his other gunmetal pistol. He fires, the bullet rushing forward to hit Korhol dead-on.

The Tion Hegemony sends coordinates to the Nexus Enclave after receiving word through certain channels that they have taken an interest in inconveniencing the Hutts.

Three Star Destroyers matching the design of the ship the factions met on earlier drop out of hyperspace, escorted by two other, unknown ships that are likely the pair of carriers the Hegemony promised to provide.

The lead Star Destroyer opens a channel to the gathered ships. "We will wait here for additional reinforcements from the Nexus Enclave. Separate into assault and infiltration forces in the meantime and stand by."

Golem's sudden burst of speed allows it to rush past the majority of the blaster fire from the starfighter; despite this, it receives a glancing blow to its left shoulder joint. Despite the hit, the mech's heavy repeater spits a stream of energy that tears through the X-wing's shields and pierces its wing, sending it careening. The pilot is able to regain control of the fighter but withdraws from battle to avoid getting shot down completely.

"Prep the dome shield," Nym tells Vergil, scanning for cover. They're dealing with a sniper, and in this mire there's no way they'll be able to pick him out. "We need to get out of the open." He has a good idea of where the enemy is in terms of direction, so finding adequate cover against their new foe shouldn't be too much of a difficulty.

As soon as the drone goes down, Vergil goes over the feed with a figurative fine-tooth comb, and is able to locate the source of the shot via both the drone's cameras and his own observations. He displays it on Nym's HUD, and the pirate focuses more on that area to see what's hiding in wait for them.

The ship, an X-Wing snubfighter, decelerates as it approaches Golem and opens fire with its laser cannons, hoping to score at least a glancing blow on the mech before having to come about for another pass; it is flying low enough to be in range of the exosuit's repeater, but this also means that the pilot's shots will be more accurate.

Nym motions for Branden to hold position and kneels down, closing his eyes and focusing. Shiva had helped him out in learning to focus his senses, and he recalls those lessons now, tuning out the distractions and background noises, peering past the roiling energies of the holograms and other arena devices to pick out any abnormalities. They need to know what they're up against before they make a move.

Nym lets the other drone attach to his armor and nods in reply to the girl's offer. "He's Reaper. Or at least, that's what he calls himself."

Vergil stifles a chuckle, having suspicions as to who the armored fighter really is. "Reaper's a rather dramatic name," he muses.

The pirate closes his eyes and expands his senses, seeing if he can pinpoint any other life aside from the girl and the Geonosian, both of whom have familiar and recognizable presences.

OOC: Turn order, people, geez. Milos > AK > Branden > Ten.

IC: Nym puts a hand on Reaper's weapon, lowering it. "These drones could be useful. I destroyed one, but the others will be valuable for scouting the areas around us. And until we deal with whatever was controlling that swarm, our best chances of survival come from working together."

He waves to the drone, making it known to the two that he's willing to parlay.

Aaron snakes his left arm past Korhol before wrenching it up and back, breaking the grip he had tried to hold on Aaron's arm. He leaps back, free from the grapple, continuing a barrage of bullets from the silver pistol.

Golem's warhead impacts one of the buildings, the explosive warhead immediately causing the already weakened structure to crumble. The shockwave from the explosion, as well as the following collapse, levels a good number of the buildings around ground zero of the detonation, and many of the insurgents are consumed by the chaos.

The rain of blaster fire from Golem shears through any buildings its barrel is pointed towards, causing them to collapse as well; it takes little to cause the surroundings to crumble to dust. Even with anti-armor weaponry, any attack on the mech by infantry units would seem to be a suicide attempt, and so for the moment the men receive orders to pull back.

In the distance Deus spots something in the sky, closing in: some sort of starfighter, too far to identify with the naked eye.

Nym stays sharp, looking around while wordlessly taking Vergil back and sliding him into his armor's neural interface. "Have fun?" he asks.

"Yup, had some interesting conversations with the kid and the girl. They're not bad people," Vergil replies.

"Uh-huh," Nym rolls his eyes, letting his Force powers rest up a bit. He looks around for the duo from before, but they're his second priority. A swarm like this has to have a source. But where to find it?
