Legend has it that I joined Aug 19, 2010

I'm a writer who enjoys listening to good music (which, to me, is most anything by Hans Zimmer, Howard Shore, and a few other artists who create similar music). I also love playing video games, mostly keeping to single-player RPGs (Dragon Age [Origins] and Skyrim). I do however occasionally play PlanetSide 2, but that's the extent of my multiplayer experience. I'm also part of a Star Wars RPG taking place on this site, mainly because I like Star Wars and I love creating stories. If you're reading this and you like Star Wars, I recommend trying it out to see how you like it. And that's about it. Now go do better things with your time, as I'm sure there are better things to do than read up on the profile of a teen with too much time on his hands. Good day!

The Chiss diplomat exits the shuttle and walks back to the room where they were holding their deliberations. When he enters the room, he walks forward, stopping in front of the document. "Our government accepts your proposal." The ambassador signs his name, inclines his head, and turns around, leaving without another word. He reenters the shuttle and the ship takes off, departing with its escort back to Chiss space.

Rogue's caution is well-rewarded; as the door opens and the flashbang goes off, she is only mildly stunned and is well out of range of the enemy weapons; the AI may know about Rogue's stealth capabilities, but it can't predict where she will be.

As the droids open fire on thin air, they alert Nym and the others to their presence. The team takes cover, a few of the men placing down portable shield generators in the hallway to give them a good line-of-sight. The group waits for the droids to attack, playing defensively. Nym keeps an eye on his motion tracker, watching for fast-moving blips that could signify advancing rigged mouse droids.

Rogue, though stunned, still has her cloak up. It doesn't take her long to get up and take up a position where she can ambush the enemies. Like Nym, she's got a motion tracker, and she keeps an eye on it in the same manner as Nym. If there's an opening and the coast seems clear, she peaks out and gauges the forces, alerting Nym to their numbers.

"Thoughts, Blacklight?" Nym asks, glancing at both doors.

"One takes us to the reactor. The other takes us to the bridge," Blacklight says. "We can shut down the shields from either. But if we take the reactor down, there's no telling what else is going to go up. The bridge could give us oversight of the situation, as well as a bit more context into what's going on here." He looks over his shoulder at the hostiles they downed. "Not that I'd like more, if I'm being honest."

Nym steps towards the door on the right. "Didn't you say we could also get a more detailed layout?"

Blacklight nods. "Yeah. There's a section here on the map that's completely sealed and closed up. The bridge might have more information as to why that is."

"Then that's where we're heading," Nym replies, motioning for the group to step well-back from the two doors. "Rogue, if you would?"

She sighs, mocking their reliance on her scouting abilities, and activates her stealth suite once more. Regardless of its defenses, it doesn't take long for the door on the right to be opened; Rogue keeps her distance, just in case there's something directly on the other side. If there's nothing there, she moves in, undetected, until she either comes across hostiles or a potential trap.

The Chiss inclines his head and departs, his aides following. They walk back into their shuttle, accessing a coded channel that not even Imperial cyberwarfare suites can break without a few hours of work; this channel links directly to the heads of the Chiss government. While the agreement is being explained, all Branden can do is wait.

The Chiss nods when Branden delivers his terms regarding the trade agreement. "Yes, we do not expect weapons or ships to be delivered across our borders, nor should you expect such from us. These terms seem amicable, and I shall discuss them with my government."

"There is one last thing that must be discussed, and that is the details regarding our mutual defense treaty. Understand, the Chiss navy, while powerful, only has so many ships. We are willing to commit them to war against an aggressor attacking the Empire, but only if we determine that such aggression was not in some way provoked by the Empire. If rumors should arise that such aggression was provoked, we shall investigate them and come to our own conclusion regarding the matter, at which point we will also decide whether to commit military forces to the Empire's defense."

"I understand that this may seem like unnecessary suspicion, but we are not so foolish as to promise our full military support blindly. However, understand that we expect the same suspicion from you; should the Chiss somehow provoke aggression from an invader, we do not expect your support. If an aggressor launches a campaign against us with no provocation, we will expect aid, and should the tables be turned, we will provide it."

"Are those terms amicable?"

The diplomat sits down, leaning forward in response to the question. Anyone without context would mistake his expression for that of one going into battle. "Understand that while we are willing to engage in negotiations with the Empire, the one thing that will not be discussed is any form of expansion into any of our territory. Likewise, we will not be at the Empire's beck and call should it decide to begin a campaign of conquest."

"Our intentions are to establish trade relations and a mutual defense treaty; should anyone launch an attack against the Empire, we will offer what assistance we can without compromising our own security. We expect the same agreement from you; should we come under attack, we will expect your aid should we prove unable to contain such an invasion."

The Chiss sits back a bit, his intentions expressed. It is now the Imperial diplomat's move.

A shuttle jumps out of hyperspace near the shipyards, escorted by several Chiss fighters. It is soon confirmed that Shawnkry Nuruodo is on-board. The ships drift towards the main station, and a signal is sent out: "We have come at your request but of our own volition to discuss the furthering of Chiss-Imperial relations. We await your proposition."

The fighters break off as the shuttle docks with the station. The diplomat walks out, accompanied by two aides. They wait expectantly for someone to meet them, as they hardly expect negotiations to be handled in the hangar bay.

Rogue, cloaked, is able to spot the hostiles before the group reaches them. She pulls back to the group, dropping her cloak. "Four hostiles, just ahead. They've got a barricade for cover and a long hallway."

Nym thinks for a second. "Can you vault over the barricade?"

Rogue nods. "A running start won't give me away if I've got my cloak up. I can get past it."

"Right," he says. "Get over the barricade and do some damage, draw their attention. Those vibroblades of yours should do some damage."

Rogue extends one of her knives, the weapon sliding into her hand. "Sounds easy enough. Once I engage, get out of cover and do some damage. Viper should be able to pierce that barricade." She activates her cloak, and Nym draws Viper, getting ready to engage.

The researchers keep watch, waiting for Nym's company to attack. Suddenly, one gets cut down, its head almost completely severed from its body; Rogue's short vibroblade cuts through flesh and cybernetics like butter. In her left hand is an automatic pistol, which she lets loose on another researcher as her blade moves on to yet another; normally the pistol would have less accuracy, but the close quarters gives it both stopping power and accuracy.

As soon as Rogue engages, Nym breaks cover, using his thermal vision to detect the little heat being generated by the semi-humans to line up a shot, firing Viper, piercing the barricade, and hitting the researcher that Rogue isn't engaging. She brings down the other with a clean slice. Her pistol had shredded through the last one.

OOC: Rogue's stealth systems and skills are unparalleled. She can get by just about anything, and if she gets close, she's one of the deadliest members of Nym's group.

The Siren and its escort land in the Carrion's expansive hangar bay. As soon as they touch down, the hangars seal, blast doors extending to complement the shields. On the bridge of the Carrion, Elias finishes plotting a course. "They're secure, cap'n," one of the crew members tells him. Elias nods in response, then activates the intercom.

"All hands, stand-by for hyperspace jump."

Before the ship activates its jump engines, Mikal manages to open a channel to the Acclaimed, Justice, and Defender, the latter still spinning up its hyperdrive to return to Kuat. He chuckles across the comm channel. "Better luck next time, Imperial louts."

The Carrion jumps to hyperspace, leaving Hok, and the Imperial squadron, behind.

As the Acclaimed opens up, the station does the same, releasing the entirety of its store of torpedoes and missiles on the Defender; this barrage is accompanied by continued synchronized bombardment by the turbolasers.

As the station shields go down to the Praetor's onslaught, a message is broadcast to all three ships: "Have a nice day."

The station explodes. The other three from before were the result of sabotage, but this one is deliberate; not only does the fusion reactor breakdown so as to create the most violent explosion possible, but dozens fusion warheads, initially intended for use in a minefield, go off as well in a synchronized burst that easily dwarfs the size of the previous three explosions combined. The shockwave severely damages the Defender, and destroys fighters close by.

"Station blew," Adara observes. "That'll give them a bit of pause."

"Not much, though," Mikal retorts, looking out into space angrily. "Where's the Carrion?"

"I've got her," Adare replies as her instruments register a ping. She looks up and barely sees the shape. "Ah. There she is."

Mikal looks where she points, and sees his ship: a shadow against space, barely noticeable in a visual scan: the Carrion, a Providence-class carrier, not thirty seconds out. "Get us there, now. Tell Elias to prep for a hyperspace jump."

The freighter and the four fighter squadrons continue their approach towards the carrier, going at full burn to keep ahead of the hopefully delayed Imperial forces and their fighters.

As the droid turns its canon to one of the crew members, Nym rushes forward, extending and activating Talon. He swipes across, holding Talon vertically, the speed of the vibrations allowing the weapon to cut through both the shield and the canon. He then carves the cybernetic freak up, Talon easily slicing through flesh and metal alike.

He looks over to the hit trooper; his armor took the hit, leaving his chest with minor burns. He gestures towards the soldier. "Five of you, take him and head back to the ship. Set up portable cover and get a good line of sight. Keep them away from it. That's our only way off this place."

The soldiers nod and leave, helping their wounded comrade. Nym and the others stay ready, but don't advance. "Rogue," he calls, giving her the signal to scout the new area. The AI is still deaf to everything in the area, and Nym doesn't feel like retorting to its insane rambling. "I'm going to tear that thing apart," he growls.

Outside the station, the Sleight tries to pierce the shield to no avail. Raptor contacts Nym: "The array's got a shield around it. We could burn through it, but we'd take a lot of the station with us. What now?"

As Nym gets the message, he sees three blips on his motion tracker and motions to his men, who all take cover behind the doorways. A few of them get a clear line-of-sight on the door as it opens. The cybernetic freaks step out, and despite the unnerving sight, the men open fire, concentrated blaster shots quickly downing the two flanking troopers. Nym himself goes behind cover and drops Stinger, switching quickly to Viper. He peaks out of cover, his shields protecting him from fire long enough for him to fire off a few well-placed shots that pierce the shield, hopefully doing enough damage to kill the cybernetic freak.

The station's interceptors light up, the grid keeping some of the turbolaser shots from getting through. Others impact the shields, lowering them to around 60% capacity. Heavier turbolasers return fire, synchronized for time-on-target impact; if anyone were inside the station, they would feel the trembling of the simultaneous turbolaser fire overcoming the inertial dampeners.

The torpedoes and missiles impact the Defender, exploding and causing hull damage. The turbolaser bolts from the station that make it through the Defender's own point defenses all strike at the same time, putting strain on the ship's shields.

As fighters break off to follow the squadrons, the station's computer begins to track them. As soon as they are in range, it diverts some of its interceptors, firing in a long-ranged dispersion pattern towards the fighter squadrons.

The pirate ships continue their flight away from the station. "Where's the Carrion?" Mikal growls.

"She's on her way," Adare reassures her captain. "Should be in sight soon."

As Branden's shuttle leaves, the station explodes. The ships around it explodes. Everything dissipates in a blinding orange and red flash; the shockwave knocks out Branden's shuttle, damaging its engines and sending the ship spiraling off, its inertia keeping it going with nothing to stop it. The same fate awaits the Predators close to the station, and many of them are put out of commission. The shockwave even manages to jolt the capital ships, pushing them aside.

The moment the explosions goes off, Mikal's ships launch, all four squadrons around the Siren, rushing away from the battle squadron. At the same time, the asteroid base's defense grid opens fire, proton torpedoes and concussion missiles speeding towards the Defender. The interceptors prepare to shoot down any fighters or projectiles that come into range, and the shields raise.

The Defender's turbolasers lock on for a moment, but the explosions flood all of the squadron's sensors with radiation, blinding the ships' sensors for a short time and preventing a lock. This, coupled with the shockwave knocking the Defender off-course, makes it difficult at best to target the station.

Mikal opens up a communication link to all of the fighters. "Everyone, prep to launch. Interceptors, when you've got enough momentum, come about and keep projectiles and fighters off our backs. Bombers, drop out if we end up with heavies on our tail." He turns to his pilot. "Give me firing control for the flare."

Adare nods to a button on one of the side panels. "All yours, boss."

Mikal displays a savage grin. "Open a channel to everyone. The station, the incoming ships, all of them. Let's do this."

"Captain, I think the jig's up," Adare warns, still listening in through the monitoring devices throughout the station.

"Ah, what a few infiltrators are capable of when a station captain gives us free reign," Mikal chuckles. "You lot, get the Siren ready. I'm going to stay here and make sure everything's prepped for our evac."

At his word, the bridge crew leave to start up the Siren, a YT-2000. It would have been a steal if it hadn't come without a hyperdrive. Around the freighter are four squadrons, two of TIE fighters and two of TIE bombers, all with pilots set up and ready.

Inside the moon base's monitoring station, Mikal sets up a defense grid program: when fighters or projectiles are detected on approach, interceptors would open up and shoot them down. Shields and armor would keep the base operational long enough for it to provide an adequate distraction. When either the shields buckle and the hull integrity reaches dangerous levels or one of the capital ships closes in, the station reactor will go critical.

"Computer," Mikal barks. "Prepare solar flare initiative. Transfer final control to the Siren."

"Confirmed," the computer replies before sending a signal to the Hok station. Mikal then leaves, hurrying to the Siren to get the hell out of dodge. The Imperials are going to be ****** about this one.

"Boss, we've got a problem," a Nikto notifies a human lounging in the bar of a moon base. "Three ships just jumped in. Imperial capitals. Two Star Destroyers and one of those big Praetor battlecruisers."

The man walks casually to the main monitoring station of the asteroid base. There are a few people there, parts of the pirate operation. "What've we got, people?" he asks, looking around.

A holographic display shows the three ships on approach, heading towards the Imperial station. "We can't take them on, sir," one of the officers comments. "They've got too many guns."

The man nods in response. "The Carrion's the only jump-capable ship we've got. We'll lose a few interceptors and bombers, but we have more."

"Sir, the Carrion's running dark on the other side of the planet. Will she be able to jump in time?"

Lancer Mikal nods. "That ship's got a lot of punch in her engines. She'll get us out of this. Now prep everyone. Like I said, I don't want any outside signs of anything going on.

Nym holds a hand up for a second. "So wait, you're telling me that we've got two AIs in this station right now? Warring AIs?"

"Maybe," Blacklight replies. "I mean, our hostile friend here wouldn't go crazy if it didn't perceive Elize as a threat. And if that's the case, then whatever she did worked pretty damned well."

"Raptor, look around the station. You're trying to find some sort of radar dish that's still being constructed. If you find it, burn it to the ground. Point defenses only; don't want to destroy the rest of the ship just yet."

Nym snorts in doubt. "There are still a million things that could go wrong with that."

"Not if you know what you're doing," Blacklight retorts. "But that's not the point right now. We started working on that little project before I got booted off of the AI research division to join your squad. You know that whole sad story, what with the Imperials still sore about the last AI experiment attempts. Well, Elize wanted to continue, but I'm pretty sure the Imperial research division mothballed the project; probably figured it was too dangerous or something." Blacklight nods towards the monitors showing Elize working in secret. "Obviously she continued under their noses."

"And we're up against the result." Nym concludes. "But wait, who's this-"

"Wrong again," Blacklight interrupts. "The AI we're up against is the AI that the other Imperials developed. From what I can piece together, I think they broke the golden rule of AI programming: they put in a self-preservation subroutine, and they put it in first."

"They put it in first?" Nym raises an eyebrow behind his visor. "Why put it in at all?"

"We always figured that self-preservation was a big driving force for a lot of our actions. The problem is it can lead to things like this," Blacklight gestures around him, referring to the entirety of the station. "You put it in after installing a whole bunch of other subroutines and priorities so it doesn't put its survival above others. They got either stupid or desperate and made that mistake."

"So, what? What set the AI off?" Nym asks, then realizes what's going on. "She succeeded, didn't she? Your friend? She was able to finish that new AI framework?"

Blacklight nods, glad that Nym is finally able to piece something together. "She uploaded herself," he says with a slight tone in his voice that Nym can't quite place. "Always was impulsive..."

"I think I've figured this out," Blacklight replies. "Give me a second." His fingers work furiously again on the system; using its heightened security access, in a few minutes he is able to isolate the auditory sensors in the area and shut them down, deafening the AI in the security station and the rooms adjacent to them. "Right," he mutters, drawing the attention of the pirate. "Nym, remember when I told you that Elize and I were working on a new AI design, something that could end up being a major breakthrough?"

Nym nods. "Yeah. You weren't specific on the details, but you sounded pretty excited when you started talking about it again." He gestures up. "Did they try that and screw up?"

Blacklight shakes his head. "Not in the slightest, I think. See, when I designed Vendetta, the only thing missing from it aside from the obvious ability to multitask was real conscience. It's one of the most difficult things to program into an AI. Generally it requires parameter after parameter, subroutine after subroutine. If we continued to build off of Vendetta's design in the hopes of creating true artificial intelligence, that's what we would end up with."

"Elize and I thought of something else." Blacklight is talking more excitedly now; it's clear that this is his passion. "Think about this, Nym. What if, instead of programming conscience, we just uploaded it? The idea was to design something that could upload a human conscience into an AI framework; a human mind with the ability to quantum compute. No book filled with pages of parameters; no potential for it all to fall apart. All you had to do was pick the right person for the job."

All boarding party members are a good distance from any unopened entrances, and Nym has his motion tracker set to detect any movement on the other side of the doors. Stinger is unholstered, the rapid fire-rate of the pistol being superior in eliminating the ragtag protocol droids to Viper, which is more designed for piercing more dangerous armored opponents.

I honestly always thought there was some informal, unspoken understanding that GMs don't... mold, I suppose, the events they participate in; they don't have much jurisdiction aside from what their character does, and they bring in the other GM if things get messy. If both are running event, I always figured I'd go to a third person/party if things got annoying or a debate broke out, but that never really happened.

There's merit to actually making the idea official, of course. I just never really thought about it.

M'kay. As I'm the one whom this mainly applies to, here's my speel on NPCs.

With regards to strength, I don't really like the idea of imposing a half-strength limit on companions; rather, companions synergize well with each other. For example, with regards to my companions, Nym's got the charisma and the raw combat skill; Rogue's got the stealth and infiltration; Shiva's got the tactical mind and the Force powers; Raptor's got the piloting ability; Blacklight's got the technical genius.

That brings me to my next point regarding companion number limit: I don't think there should be a limit to the NPCs you can have, but a limit on which ones you can bring onto the battlefield. And moreover, I don't think it should be a hard limit. Granted, the alternative makes things more complicated.

Here's my proposition: GMs are provided information about NPCs and then give some sort of combat rating. When an event is started, the GM is provided information about the environment and from there determines some sort of "difficulty rating". These two ratings decide which companions can be taken. For example, an area with a high difficulty rating allows you to bring either one highly rated companion or two or three companions with a lower rating.

I'll have to elaborate further when I'm not on my phone. The idea would be better proposed in a new image.

I've been able to read, but haven't had time to formulate a response. Sorry.

As it is, you've got a good point, but I do think things have gotten better. If there's one thing that we've at best been shaky about, it's the enforcement of the skill trees to use abilities. There's also the matter of measuring companion and NPC strength (I'm the main one guilty of this). As it is, I personally try to keep it within reason the extent my characters use Force powers and the like.

Granted, the "phasing-out", so to speak, of non-Force users isn't only due to the offensive disparity; there's also the durability issue. Unless taken by surprise (which is exceedingly rare), any Force user will require a double-tap to eliminate, whereas unless using advanced technology, non-Force users are more vulnerable. That's why Nym has advanced armor: to give him survivability.

This is a bit of a rushed response. I'll probably revise and refine my thoughts later, but for now, there you go.

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

An hour later, Rogue and Nym board the shuttle, both armored. Rogue looks at Nym. "You could've just not worn your armor," she mutters.

"No one knows what I look like, and I'd like to keep it that way," Nym retorts. "Besides, never know when you'll get into a firefight in Nar Shadda."

"With you drawing the attention of every hunter BeskadTech's got, I can take a pretty good guess at that," Rogue answers.

"That's why you're watching my back," Nym replies. "How long have you spent using those combat sims I designed?"

Rogue smirks under her new armor. "Long enough to get pretty good at fighting."

"Good," Nym says as he feels the shuttle lurch and leave the Agamemnon's hangar bay.

A few hours later, the ship touches down at a landing pad in Nar Shadda. Nym exits alone, gesturing to a group of pre-paid security officers to keep the ship safe. He suspects they may be Syndicate, but doesn't much care as long as he's got a ride. He always has his backup plans, though. He then makes his way to the meeting place, eyeing everything cautiously. He sees the casino and chuckles at its out-of-place extravagance. It's a good thing he's not much of a gambler, at least with his money.

"He's here," an agent notifies Mythus through the crime lord's earpiece. "Just landed in his fancy warship."

The crime lord takes a sip from a glass goblet, this time filled with fine liquor. He had been waiting, but not too long. Just long enough to get his bodyguards into place; he is certainly capable of defending himself, but his most dangerous enemies know this and will come after him with overwhelming force. Hence, the great many men at his disposal within a thirty meter radius. "Send him here," he responds to his agent, expecting his order to be given to another emissary, who will meet Ori`verda and direct him to the cantina.

"Sir," another voice notifies him; this one coming from his headquarters. Hunt rolls his eyes in irritation at the interruption.

"I'm busy. What is it?" he snaps, having ordered before-hand to not be interrupted for the duration of his absence.

The man's voice sounds slightly nervous to have disturbed the crime lord. "Sir, forgive me, but Daemon Drexl is waiting for you."

Mythus rolls his eyes, remembering now that he had a meeting with one of the many mercenary pirates in the system. "Tell him I'll send for him when I am able. I am otherwise preoccupied. Don't interrupt me again."

He waits patiently for the Mandalorian, sipping his fine wine, comfortable in his power; Ori`verda may be one of the most dangerous warriors in the galaxy, but Sleheyron belongs to the Hutts first, and Mythus second.

If it needs to go, I would recommend having its effect transfer to the Soldier skill group or something like that?

Force users are hard to compete with because they have the Force. Mandalorians are not as hard to compete with, both because they usually lack the Force, and because what sets Mandalorians apart is their combat skill and experience. At that point, a battle between a non-Mandalorian and a Mandalorian is essentially one pitting their experience and combat skill against the other and hoping it is enough to beat out the other. Granted, the Mandalorians will usually have more combat experience, but I always saw the Combat Expert skill group as what would balance out a Mandalorian and a non-Mandalorian in terms of combat skill.

I don't understand why Inspiring Leader is impossible to max out? I'm obviously missing something here... what is it?

So, the skill tree will be changed to no longer have Inspiring Leader? So the Soldier skill group becomes basically investing in dumb luck and inspiring men? That's the way I'm seeing it...

Nym rolls his eyes, growling in irritation. The message he ensured was routed throughout his own ships; the inbound shuttles wave off, waiting for alternate commands, and Nym's own shuttle stays close to the hangar bay.

"They're idiots," he growls. He turns around, addressing the crew in the shuttle. "You heard them," he begins. "We'll have to take our loot with bloodied hands. I see that as a challenge. I know for a fact that each and every one of you is capable of going in there and tearing them apart. But I also know for a fact that w're capable of taking over that ship without killing a single person. They don't think we can. Let's prove them wrong." Blacklight nods, as do the rest of the crew in the shuttle, their morale raised slightly by the impromptu speech.

Nym walks over to Rogue, who had turned her back during the speech, trying to ignore Nym's ideologies in favor of checking her gear. "You heard what I said," he begins. "Don't kill anyone." She turns around, taking off her mask, an annoyed look on her face. "For the most part, there are just civilians on those ships." Nym continues. "We don't want to polarize people by killing them."

Rogue looks at the naive pirate with a look of almost disbelief. "You're robbing people of their livelihoods," she counters. "And you DON'T want to polarize them? If you're going to tell me to do something stupid, at least give me a good reason." With that, she turns her back, her focus returning to her gear.

Nym shakes his head and turns to Blacklight. "What're we up against?" he asks, slightly relieved to be in more friendly company.

OOC: This is the part where you tell me how many men I'm up against. Hope you liked that bit of dialogue, it provides a bit of insight into the relationships some of the characters have.

Yeah, I was trying to come up with something for Fido. I'll take out the 360 degree turn ability, and hopefully that will be enough, as that would seriously limit his range to only a conical section. I'll think about what else I can do.

They aren't all experts in combat. The only ones that are any good in extended firefights are Nym and Fido. Blacklight and Raptor have only enough experience to defend themselves, but I might have gone into so much detail on that point that it made them look like combat experts (they aren't; they can shoot weapons with a decent amount of accuracy). Rogue is only good in CQC and sneak attacks. Shiva is best at range, and the lightsaber is only there just in case someone gets close to her. Any decent duelist would wipe the floor with her in a heartbeat, assuming they reach her, which is why she stays at range.

The battle meditation is downgraded, or at least, that's how I planned to employ it. Shiva uses it primarily during raids in which it affects only a small amount of people, either bolstering the confidence of allies OR sowing doubt among enemies. Maybe she'll get better over time, but for now, that's all she can do. It can't be used on a massive scale Bastila Shan-style.

Does that sound good, or is there more I need to do?

Yeah, I get what you mean. No, it isn't lightsaber resistant, that's the energy shield's job. The armor itself isn't heavy, but it is designed in such a way as to absorb and lessen the damage caused by kinetic impacts.

As for the shield, in the description it mentions a re-routable power supply. Basically, the armor can either have its cloak active, or its shield, which flares up during use. The cloak is self-explanatory. The shield can absorb a good deal of standard blaster fire, and maybe a few hits from a lightsaber if fully-powered.

PART 1

The Vigils and Vindicators try to contact the trade ships, but get no response.

They exit hyperspace inside a small asteroid field, of all things, unmarked on any maps. They are able to detect the freighter, but still get no response.

The ships take a beating from the asteroids and suddenly all five ships lose all power. Fighters swarm over the ships, releasing payloads of energy bombs that disable weapon hardpoints, engines, and shields. One corvette and one Vindicator are left with their engines intact, but the rest are rendered adrift.

The fighters wave off and the crews of the ships try to figure out what is going on. They try to send distress signals but find that communications are jammed. They also find that they cannot communicate between each other, leaving each ship in the dark.

On one of the Vigils, three figures appear on the bridge. Within a minute they have disabled the crew. Nym holsters his weapons and nods to Blacklight and another crewmember, who all put away their weapons. Nym knows that on one of the Vindicators the same thing is happening. He nods to Blacklight and seals the blast doors to the bridge.

From the viewports of two of the Vindicators and one of the Vigils, one of the frigates and one of the corvettes depart, maneuvering out of the asteroid field and jumping to hyperspace.

The Shadow Wing exits hyperspace soon after the Umbris, full stealth systems engaged.

On-board, Aaron slips his helmet on and stretches his neck. He flips his lightsaber hilt around his hand several times before belting it to his hip. Looking across the room, he sees Nightshade, one of his assassins trained on the Armifer, getting ready.

His suit is a nano-weave, lightweight and flexible to allow fast movements but also strong enough to resist several attacks. On Nightshade's back is a collapsible cortosis pike and a modified long-rifle, and on his gauntlets were two detachable guard shotos.

Aaron grins to himself watching Nightshade prepare. "Ready for your first mission?"

"Of course," Nightshade replies.

Aaron nods. "SERA, take us down and over Fai. Once we're on the ground, land the Shadow Wing far from the Umbris and give me the coordinates. Be ready to leave on my command, and keep the ship hidden at all costs. If we run into trouble, take off and keep the ship moving until we need a pick-up."

"Confirmed, Aaron," the Shadow Wing's AI responds, and the ship descends, angled down before pulling up close to the surface.

As the ship flies over Fai's position, Aaron nods to Nightshade. The Shadow Wing's loading area is suddenly replaced with the desolate backdrop of the Korriban wastes. Behind the two, the startled rangers raise their weapons, but Fai settles them, unsurprised.

Aaron turns around, nodding to the Jedi master. He looks to Nightshade, but the assassin is gone, his training under Aaron serving him well. Looking out, Aaron sighs. He feels the familiar power of Korriban, but it is no threat to him.

"Looks like hell," Aaron mutters. "No wonder I feel at home."

Velox squadron jumps in, firing their main cannons at several frigate sized Silentium ships. They come about after damaging their targets, evading attacks as they speed away, joining up with Jester's fleet. Ten Sabers repeat this maneuver, being careful to stay away from the larger ships. After depleting the Silentium of some of their frigate-sized vessels, they rejoin the fleet, circling around and keeping the smaller vessels at bay.

You could line the two areas next to the red stripe with point defense cannons.

Sorry, this fighter's cool and all, but I don't think it can match the Dragoon. It can come close, but it can't match it. The plasma cannons would be dangerous, but thermal shields could defend pretty well against them. On all my ships, there are shields that scatter ion particles, rendering ion cannons useless (this idea was created around the time you developed the Vernichtung, to counter the ion cannons), and the Dragoon is a lot more maneuverable. The missiles would be difficult to use, as Drakkar ships are equipped with extremely advanced ECM/ECCM programs which can jam missile locking systems. The shields would provide a problem, but the railgun equipped on the underbelly of the Dragoon would definitely put a hole in a Vengeance with a few shots. But it is a nice fighter, and definitely a step up from the puny little Sith Fighters used by Revan and Malak (they looked cool, though).

Don't want a smart phone. I'm fine with my Razor, and it's definitely cheaper than an iPhone (or Android, or what have you).

Kyr Galaar bombers. At least, what they're called in RotM. You guys did a fantastic job with these things. I'm guesssing this thing won't be as powerful as in RotM? In that, three squadrons could take out Home One and the Errant Venture with no losses. Anyways, keep up the good work.

Nice vid. Love the maps. Oh, and by the way, for anyone wondering, the song is Tristan, by Two Steps from Hell.

Probably a turret that you can build on a build pad. Probably. I really don't know, but it looks pretty cool.
