I like to play RPG, RTS and shooter games. I am a big fan of Star Wars movies and games most of all. I am looking forward to many good mods from this site :D
On the outside edge of the battle I place the ship in the able control of my R2 Unit and settle into a full Battle Meditation feeling the trajectory of every rocket and following the lines of every laser, guiding those of the light in to their targets and causing those of the dark to fire wide or detonate prior to impact...
Morale amongst the Republic troops and pilots begins to surge into something akin to bloodlust and they pursue their targets in earnest
I come around the underside of the Decimator dodging defensive fire and spear the boarding craft one after another with my quads before pulling back and away from the battle...
Friedensstifter approaching Decimator opens fire with all Turbolaser batteries on the Ion cannons engaging Master Headhunter's fleet
Friedensstifter Lets up fire on the crippled battle ship and sends all power to forward shields as it turns and heads towards Decimator straight on allowing the smallest target possible...
The remaining B-wings continue to batter the Comm tower as I engage and release all my Protons at the turrets near the comm
With the Decimator's frontal shields beginning to fail under the proton assault I direct the B-wing Squadrons to open up with full quads and all remaining protons on the Control tower assisting in focussing their fire on the transparisteel view screen
My Fighter force begins lining up and launching volley after volley of Protons at the Decimator's shield generators as I pull back guiding them in using a minor Battle Meditation
The remaining frigates break and leave the battleship to the larger cruisers heading towards the Decimator with the X-Wings and all remaining fighters...
3 Squadrons of X-Wings sortie to meet the new fighter threat led by me as Friedensstifter moves into position with my 2 Mon Calimar Cruisers to fire on the incoming battleship in a wedge formation
The Friedensstifter and the rest of my fleet comes out of hyperspace just on the edge of the battle and opens op on Lord Of Pain's flagship with all Ion cannons as Republic Ground assault forces head planet side to reinforce Master Headhunter's forces.
Ahhh but 20 million was the number maintained by the Soviets until 1996 when they released the legitimate figures. The 20 million were war casualties (including those slaughtered by the NKVD), but the rest were the Officers and enlisted men and women executed in the military purge by Stalin after the Soviet attack on Finland prior to Operation Barbarosa and those executed during and after the war for "crimes against the State". In fact the main reason the Wehrmacht was so successful on teh Eastern Front is that nearly all of Stalin's Officer Corps was dead and there was almost no Veteran leadership to man the defense.
My facts are quite clear... well studied throughout my life as my Grandparents escaped Georgia just after the Communist Revolution and avoided being some of the "broken eggs to make an omelet".
Communism... great for the people in theory, great for the Dictator in practice.
It is my great honor to announce that DeadRanger has completed his training and has been accepted into the Order as a Jedi Knight. Congratulations DeadRanger and I look forward to fighting at your side in the AOL.
Lol! yeah, I changed it to a pic I took when I was on my trip and when I got back I couldn't find the old pic online :P I like this one anyway because I just finished reading one of the Rogue Squadron books, lol.
I agree with Master Headhunter but I also think that Johnyboy1 should take some responsibility for his actions. I don't mean that necessarily in the sense that he should be beat up on by everyone for what he has said but more in the sense that he should consider what he is saying when he says it and try and not be so abrasive when posting. I'm trying to offer some constructive criticism for what it's worth.
Looks like a game to me, especially with the color coded fighters.
*Just prior to entering trance I send out transmission to jedi frequencies*
"My fellow Jedi, my time as Grand Master of the Order was bittersweet but I have faith that the Force guides our destinies and so it is with great confidence and no small amount of joy that I inform you all that Master Sand-Fly will be taking over as Grand Master during this challenging time. Thank you all for your support during my time as GM*
*Arrives at Thyferra and finds desyroyed mutagen containers in field. Uses force to locate residual strands of virus in the root systems of various plants. Generates isolating Force bubble around infected area beneath the ground and settles into healing trance to eliminate the mutagen strand by strand*
Who was Kibbles Master? Was he even in training?
Hi everyone! Sorry I havent been on. I hate business travel. I need a new job when this is done :P Be on more tomorrow.
Great! I hope you are well as well my Padawan ;)
I would like to congratulate my Padawan Tharnis for passing his trials and becoming a Jedi Knight! I know you will serve the Order well!
I will now be taking my old Padawan DeadRanger4Ever back to complete his training if no one has any objections.
Thank you my Padawan. Without an exemplary student my training would have been meaningless.
My Padawan has indeed passed the trials and proven himself worthy on every count. I also truly appreciate his efforts during the battle yesterday and will present my petition to the Council for his Knighting.
Master Katy! It is great to see you back, i hope this is a regular occurance!
This was a brutal attack and I will admit brilliantly conceived. I was completely shocked when Darth ten10dix asked me to open the hyperlanes to allow the sith forces to leave the core and all of a sudden darth xerstorung reports that he has intercepted the codes I just sent and forwarded them to the sith forces then proceeded to take down Coruscants's shields a minute before darth ten10dix comes out of hyperspace to begin the bombing of the planet. What can I say, you outplayed us and despite my best efforts I couldn't keep up. Congratulations. Until we meet again.
*Sends transmission to the Temple*
"Coruscant surrenders. I implore you to cease bombardment. A dead planet is of no use to you. You have your victory, please spare the planet and it's people."
Sensing the enormous blackness emerging through the halls of the Temple I realize there can be no victory here. I run to the hangar and flee in the X-Wing closest to me. I follow the path of the escaping civilian ships and head towards open space.
Mobilizing civilian evacuation ships sending them out along the trajectories of the Ion canons that are firing at the Sith capital ships. Sends out holo to all Jedi: "Need help desperately! Coruscand is under attack and I'm not sure how long I can hold them!"
Having reached the Temple Command Center I hit the emergency override defense controls. All concealed guns emerge from below their bombardment plating and commence firing at the ships above.
Knowing full well that the destruction around me is fueling the Force in the Sith up ahead I move quietly and quickly away and back toward the Jedi Temple. There must be other Jedi around.
See's a squad of Sith assassin droids heading my direction. I locate a Republic Garrison that's still in tact beneath the reignited shield and direct them to lower the anti Air Ion cannon and fire at the droids. Within 3 shots the droid squad has been disabled before they had a chance to fire a shot.
