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!

Serena continues to hang back, and likewise realizes that the Mandalorian's group is also trying to go unnoticed. Amusing, but she doubts that the Sith would be able to miss them. Speaking of the Sith, they seem to have things under control. The Massassi numbers are halved, and their primitive weaponry and current lack of a shield means that the remaining troops could just mow them down with their blasters; any who got close she expected would be torn apart by the two Sith. They don't need her help just yet.

Serena stifles her sneeze, if only to spite the strange divine deities. If it's any consolation to them, she does intend to step in soon, as she expects the Imperials are belligerently shaking the hornets' nest.

Many request to be a part of Nimrod's crew, but find that the pirate is in fact not recruiting, and that the 'demonstration', so to speak, was more for potential allies than for potential recruits.

Lancer begins to feel the hurt as dissatisfaction with his command begins to spread; it seems that the decision to leave in light of the Empire's ire seems to not have been a popular one, especially given this most recent demonstration that staying and continuing against the Empire is completely viable.

With the successful raid, Nimrod's reputation has increased tremendously. Some bring up the former pirate lord of the Imperial sector, Lancer Mikal, and Nimrod stands by his original statements, saying that it doesn't matter how hot things get; if you're good enough and smart enough, you can run circles around even the strongest of navies. His words coupled with his recent accomplishments against the Empire, stealing one of their top-of-the-line Star Destroyers from a convoy meant to be a trap, cause a great deal of damage to Lancer's reputation.

After a few minutes, the Star Destroyer starts moving again. It then jumps to hyperspace. The Ardent follows a moment later.

Elias, slightly disgruntled at Lancer's forgetfulness, reminds him in turn that they had made such a tactic work before by damaging key areas and systems and piercing the hull to ensure the oxygen leaves quickly.

Elias reminds Lancer that the ships were pulled out of hyperspace away from any potential Imperial response force, which is why it's taking so long for the Imperials to show.

Shuttles start flying towards the Star Destroyer; it seems the operation is almost over.

The crew of the ship don't get many more details, but they recognize the tactic, hitting the life support, letting the crews suffocate, and then taking everything. It's just a waiting game now, but they expect to see shuttles going from the Ardent to the Star Destroyer soon. At that point, it won't be long until both ships depart.

The Ardent seems to be hiding at the edge of an asteroid field, making pinpoint jumps in range of the small ship difficult, at best.

Lancer's crew detects damage to the life support systems of the military vessels. The damage seems recent. The Imperial ships seem to have been disabled with some sort of ionn weaponry. The frigate is an Ardent-class fast frigate, but it doesn't seem to have heavy modifications. Perhaps they used some sort of mine-based weaponry?

As they move closer, the Ardent comes about, opening a comm channel with the Carrion. "Whoever you are, back off. This is our-" There's a small pause, and the subject changes. "You're Lancer Mikal. I thought you left Imperial territory?" It seems the Carrion's reputation precedes its crew's.

Due to the distance required to maintain secrecy, the crew is only able to gather a small amount of 'surface data', so to speak, on the situation. They detect that the military escort ships seem to be disabled, though at the range they are at it is impossible to ascertain how the damage was done and its extent. They are also able to detect a lone frigate-sized vessel moving under its own power rather than drifting aimlessly; this must be at least one of Nimrod's ships.

Serena stifles a sigh and weighs her options; she could very easily launch her shield through the ray shield, but that would give away her position, which is something she is loathe to do. She figures that it's easy enough for the brilliant, glorious, amazing, and apparently incredibly big-headed (literally) Lok to simply let go of the spear the Massassi grab, though she's not sure if he'll be able to figure that out. Meanwhile, the brutish Anzat just stands there watching the whole ordeal and looking laughably idiotic.

The Mandalorian men seem to be frozen in time and space for some strange reason. Serena hasn't seen anything like it since that one time when she raided a Hutt compound with that pirate and his slightly psychotic assassin friend. Strange. She brushes these strange happenings aside as simply byproducts of the powerful dark side presence in the temple, and continues to observe the Imperials, curious to see how they'll get out of their predicament.

However, this revelation that solid objects can pass through the shield begs the question as to why the Massassi didn't simply form a wall behind it with the spears bristling out, waiting to be jabbed through the shield should anything get close. It seems that despite being able to operate a shield, the stupid beasts have no sense of tactics. Thank the Force for that.

While they are aware of the convoy's trade route, Lancer's crew cannot ascertain exactly where the raid will happen, if it happens at all. The route gives them a general area, but they won't be able to directly observe anything going on in the raid.

Elias suddenly notices the convoy going dark; it seems that this time Nimrod isn't trying to attract the attention of the Imperials and is just focusing on the convoy itself, banking on the hope that it would take time for the Imperials to mobilize their forces; Elias notes that the convoy went dark in a fairly remote sector of space, where there are no military installations or fleet movements; it seems that either the Imperials were expecting Nimrod to be without a gravity well generator or that they expect the convoy's guard to be enough to defend it.

Serena isn't a fan of not knowing what some scout is looking at; unfortunately, such lack of knowledge is a by-product of her positioning, and trying to scout forward with Lok's shadow would be risky at best. Behind her she still senses the Mandalorian and his men, but they are simply hanging back, avoiding a confrontation and seemingly adopting the same tactic she is of letting the Imperials trigger all of the traps and kill all of the enemies before moving in for the prize. She doubts things will be that simple, however. Things never really are.

She waits, keeping her distance from the Imperials but remaining within earshot in order to discern what exactly Lok sees in the new room. She doubts its anything of interest, and if it is, she also doubts that it wouldn't be a trap.

OOC: Remind me to never go up against psychics again.

IC: Elias' watchfulness is rewarded as they learn of a convoy being sent out along a remote trade route; it is heavily guarded and is no doubt a trap meant to draw Nimrod out. It seems the pirate's boasts will soon be put to the test.

Lancer's men make it to Nar Shaddaa but find that in fact their information was off; the pirate isn't recruiting, but advertising his skills and making his name known to those interested in alliances. While he has yet to prove himself, Lancer's men learn that if Nimrod's claims can be backed up, he'll earn himself a great deal of support and fame in the underworld. They also learn that Nimrod started railing against Lancer because he was asked about the pirate lord by another.

Adare's search for pirates willing to ally against Nimrod bears little fruit, as most, if any, are not directly threatened by the pirate's activities. Most are waiting to see if the new pirate is able to back up his own claims, and if he can, they're interested in allying with him.

The boot passes under Nym's right arm and strikes him right beneath the armpit; his armor absorbs the damage. The same can't be said for Ajax's armor as the humming blade the boot passed under strikes right above the heart, either piercing the armor thanks to the vibration cell or again knocking Ajax back due to his imbalance thanks to his kicking maneuver.

As Ajax staggers back, Nym presses his advantage. "Faster," he growls in his head. "I can go faster."

His blades move furiously, a whirl of motion near impossible to follow. Nym is no longer thinking, his body acting on its own using patterns practiced to the point where they are instinctual. Ajax doesn't get any time to recover before the next attack.

Nym's right blade catches on the beskad, and his momentum forces the blade to the side as Ajax is wielding it with one hand. Nym's left blade thrusts forward, passing the fist and striking first thanks to its length compared to Ajax's fist, impacting the breast breastplate and either piercing it or knocking Ajax back from the force of the blow.

Serena shakes her head at the raging Sith, but makes sure to remain soundless. She is skeptical about the secret passage Lok finds, but it probably will end up being the only way around the shield generator. She waits for the Sith to send out its Force Shadow to scout the area; that would offer them a bit of insight into where it led.

She also for a brief moment senses the Mandalorian group behind them; it seems they decided to mirror her tactic; of course, the fact that most of them couldn't actually mask their minute presences in the Force meant that anyone with proper training would be able to sense their presence. One of them disappears, and she suspects this is the Force user.

Ajax can't see it, but behind his opaque visor Nym's grin is feral. This is what he lives for. He charges again, watching the movements and positioning of Ajax's beskad and readying his left blade for a counter, while his right blade launches another powerful thrust.

Nym lets go of his right blade, allowing it to fly off to the side. His left blade is perpendicular to the beskad, forming a cross; in this way, it's meant as a defensive measure, doing nothing but impeding the opposing blade; it isn't meant as an attack. Nym's right cross, however, is very much meant as an attack, as his closed fist comes across lightning fast; it hits Ajax square in the face.

Under normal circumstances, such a blow would do nothing, as both combatants are wearing armor that would protect them from said attack. However, Nym still has a lot of forward momentum from his jump towards Ajax, and the Mandalorian is on one leg thanks to his maneuver against Nym's right blade. These things, coupled with the force from Nym's left blade on the beskad forcing Ajax back, mean that the punch knocks Ajax clean off of his feet.

Nym stops himself from going further forward and in almost the same motion leaps back towards his right blade, deftly scooping it up; he's ready for round two.

Nym is slightly irate at the random appearance of the Namegen family during his deliberations between the chrome troopers and the (thanks to Rogue) recently deceased Branden "Minesweeper" Magister; Nym suspects that he is related to the Namegen family, and sensing their relative in danger, they appeared. Regardless of their motivations, Nym is looking forward to a chance to test Vendetta out. He's also never fought against a Mandalorian that wasn't the Mandalore before; he suspects they're not all of his caliber, and he's curious to see where he ranks with them in terms of skill.

But it's time to stop wasting time. He uncouples Talon and gets ready to fight, settling into his combat stance. His breath slows as he gets ready. Then... he explodes.

Youtu.be

The pirate charges forth blindingly fast, covering the distance between the two of them in the blink of an eye; Talon's two blades are a furious whirl, and Ajax's single beskad is knocked aside like a sapling in a tornado; the Mandalorian's only saving grace is his beskar armor.

After a while of waiting, Nym starts to feel sorry for the poor cargo transport. However, at this point he realizes that Lancer won't be so easy to lure out. With a sigh, he nods to Raptor. "Call it off. Send a message to Pain to meet back on Mimban. We'll build off of this."

The Sleight of Hand sends the signal to the Imperial formation. When they get there, however, they find a beacon drifting close to the trade convoy, transmitting a message: "The ships are a bit dented in their weapon emplacements and their engines took some hits, but no casualties. Lancer's a no-go, but not for long. Feel free to mop up. But make sure the crews don't breathe a word about anything to anyone. The pirate's more clever than we both expected, and it'll take some doing to lure him out of hiding. Explain back on Mimban Station."

"Obliged. See you boys on the other side," Nym gets up, and Rogue follows, casting a sly glance towards the fuming chrome trooper, along with a chuckle. They walk towards their shuttle, boarding.

Rogue stretches as she feels the shuttle lurch, leaving the station. "That was fun," she sighs.

Nym shakes his head. "Please don't do that again."

She shrugs in reply. "What can I say. They were just setting themselves up." As Nym shakes his head again, turning away, she scowls. "Nym, I'm an assassin and a fighter, not a diplomat. You want one of those, talk to Shiva. I'm sure the Jedi taught her quite well how to stay out of a fight."

Nym says nothing in reply, and the cabin fills with silence. In his head, plans are flying through on how to effectively deal with Lancer. It seems like Veritas will be able to make his debut...

Nym sighs at the suggestion of the chrome trooper coming with them. "No offense, but there's not a lot of love for Imperials on my crew. There's also the issue of secrecy. As I've said, we've got our wily ways of bringing Lancer down, and we wouldn't want those ways to become well-known information."

He glances at the Mandalorian. "If he comes along, we'll also be at an impasse, as there's no way he'd ever let anyone into his head, and on principle we'd have to have bits of his memory wiped to preserve what protection in secrecy we do have."
