Your opinion is not necessarily mine; Your opinion is not fact; Your opinion is not absolute. Your opinion is a perspective.
Don't even get me started on the Medieval Dark Ages. Most modern historians agree that its ********.
The only time frame you could call the Dark Ages is between the collapse of the Western Roman Empire and maybe up til end of the Viking Age.
Also, more of this? We get it bro.
Were I an American, I would vote for Jill Stein though, even though her chances of winning are slim to none. Normally I would have voted Democrat, but this election have really pointed out how flawed she is a candidate.
I think a lot of Democrats are voting for her more or less because they made up their mind in the beginning that America NEEDS the next president to be a woman and because it would be historic and not because she would make a good president.
I hate both Hillary and Trump as much as everyone else that I know, but if Bernie didn't throw in his support behind Hillary, he wouldn't be able to push Hillary into making concessions and ComradeWinston mentioned.
That also goes for Bernie running as the Green Party candidate, not to mention it would make him a liar as he promised to run as, and only as, a Democratic Candidate. Not to mention I doubt he would have any realistic chance of winning in the green party.
Former Bernie supporters can hate him for it, but he is being realistic and opts for the best decision he can make. At least this way, Bernie is guaranteed to have some say.
That said its a ****** situation. Its kinda funny, people can hate all they want on Obama for supposedly doing a bad job (Republican sore loser syndrome) but compared to the next possible presidents? Omg.
Maybe my heart is black, but I wasn't terribly offended.
Many days later, a man walks up to the temple. He brings with him a large case which he is to present to the Jedi High Council. He opens it and presents dozens of holocrons, hidden away during the time of the Army of Light.
"Personally, I don't believe there is such a thing as a former Sith. It will be interesting to see if you prove that assumption wrong." Loreck says.
In case it wasn't already obvious, the man reveals himself as a Jedi by his slight bow and introduces himself. "Loreck." he says. "Loreck Fel. I got the impression from an old friend that you were my ride back to the Jedi Temple."
Upon further inspection of Nym, he smile disappears for a moment as if he senses something through the force.
"She is a Jedi." he says, "But you are not. Most curious." Neither wanting to pry nor create a confrontation due to the value of his cargo, his smile returns and he continues. "Ah, but that is not a matter for me. I can assure you I will be a most pleasant travelling companion for the journey and an extra hand on the ship should you need it." he ends.
Back at the shuttle, the man stands up.
"Seems like the old man didn't kill your friend and is on his way back." he says, Nym not even in view yet. Do you mind?" he asks and gestures towards his large case on the turbolift and the shuttle. Intending to be prepared to leave once Nym returns.
Eventually the two arrive back up at the top of the stairs, and presuming they have no intention of going back to the first chamber, they take the second staircase leading away from the Force nexus. The staircase leads into a long sloped hallway that leads up to the surface to what was once a hidden door, but down rubble, allowing exit from the temple from where they can make their way back to the Jedi's camp.
Besides a massive hole in the wall from where the Saarl entered, the stairs going up are still intact, allowing the two to either return that way, or go through the new tunnel that the Saarl had made.
Greatly wounded, by both the force lighting and the large gash in its side it stays on the other end, taking a defensive stance having lost interest in fighting for the moment.
The redirected force lightning cripples the Saarl, causing small blisters that explode and cause serious harm to the creature and it momentarily withdraws to the other end of the chamber. In doing so it leaves the entrance to the chamber open.
Redirecting the force lighting back towards the Saarl does seem to have an effect although limited,as it continues to draw upon the force nexus below them, empowering itself for a third force lightning attack.
OOC: Lets pretend I have the power of a GM and heed my warning; Figure out what I have hinted twice now or die xD
Nym succeeds in drawing its attention, and its sends another wave of force lighting towards Nym.
OOC: I'm running a serious blank on the variety of ways a Worm... can attack. xD
The blaster fire enrages the beast, even more when the Jedi strikes it. Once again, and even stronger than before, it unleashes another wave of force lighting that spreads out over the cavern, this time it cannot be avoided and strikes both the Jedi and Nym.
The duo was right to take cover as force lightning soon covers the area. When it stops, it charges towards the duo.
The duo doesn't get much of a chance to find out, as the ground starts to shake and the doors they came through are shattered as the Saarl tears through it.
Excited about having relocated its prey and being so close to the force nexus, force lighting starts to crackle around its mouth.
Before Nyms hand is even close, its suddenly pulled into the Bogan sphere, trapping it there. Intense pain begins in Nyms head, as mental dark side spikes tear into him, or so it feels like as they begin tearing down the wall of light surrounding his connection to the force.
When the Jedi touches the sphere of Ashla however, nothing happens.
Finally, Nym is flung away from the sphere of Bogan, the wall of light in his mind broken down.
"Your mind is obstructed by a wall of light, in order to restore balance, you must touch Bogan. The Darkside." The force ghost says, having reappeared once again. However, its not long before its gone again.
"May the force by with you, we shall not meet again." It says as it leaves.
The stairs lead them further and further down, at one point they come so close to the main tunnel again that they can hear, and feel the Saarl crawling through it, having seemingly survived the collapsing roof. Just as it seems they are about to re-enter the main tunnel, the stairs end and short hallway leads to a massive metal door.
The doors are covered with what must once have been a very detailed series of pictures and fancifully written texts, however time have long since eroded the stories of the Je'daii. Across the hallways are hundreds of droids, much older than the ones they previously encountered, these haven been broken down for possibly thousands of years.
As they approach, the doors open by themselves, fortunately for Nym, this is caused by the Jedi's presence. As the doors open they reveal a massive underground cavern, seemingly shaped in deliberate ways but by unknown means.In the middle is a platform, flanked by two statues holding a large round object each within arms length of each other. The round object on the left seems to be radiating light, while the one on the right is shrouded in darkness.
The doors close behind them.
The chamber they enter is small, however filled to the brim with weapons and pretty much all broke. It appears they have entered a small storage room. A broken door shows them they way out of the storage room, leading them to two stairs, both going down. One seems to go back towards the main tunnel, and the other seem to lead away from where they need to go.
After walking a small distance, they are faced with a choice as a second tunnel leads back into what seems to be another chamber, while the main tunnel continues to go down.
The main tunnel leads further down, from which the pulses of the Force nexus is strongest, where as it doesn't emanate as strongly from the second one. The second route may however be safer.
Pretty much as soon as they enter the tunnel, much of the temple hall collapses, trapping both Nym and the Jedi in the tunnel and enshrouding them in darkness. The only way to go now, is down.
The Saarl work shrieks as its wounded by the lightsaber cut and the hypersonic slug, however they are hardly fatal wounds. It strikes again, this time towards Nym.
Luckily for the duo, a large piece of the roof falls down on the Saarl, givivng the them perhaps the only chance they have of surviving.
Its not long before the Saarl had dealt with the droids and it turns it attention to the real feast. It senses the Jedi first as twirls its massive body towards the Jedi as it had the droids before, attempting to devour the Jedi whole. On its way it knocks down one of the last pillars holding the structure together and much of the temple starts shaking.
Upon fully entering the main chamber they see why it has collapsed. Many pillars that there supposed to hold op the roof and otherwise support the structure had been torn down violently and , near the back wall, a large part of the floor had collapsed and a massive round tunnel lead beneath the temple. On both sides there seem to have once been several hallways and passages that are now blocked along with stairs leading up which have long since collapsed.
As the duo and the droids make quite a bit of noise the local resident slithers up through the hole in the floor, no doubt looking forward to its next meal. The massive purple looking Saarl with its tooth-filled maw that opens like a three-petaled flower, thrusts itself towards the droids first devouring half a dozen and crushing many others. Along the Nym and the Jedi, are only six droids left. "Halt. Intruder!" they yell at the Saarl and attack it.
Back at the shuttle, Shiva senses she is about to have guests, as a man comes up to her, dragging a large case on a small turbolift.
"Finally." He announces to Shiva. "Only took the Jedi Order thirty years to come and get me. Not to mention you could have landed a bit closer. Dragging this thing for a hundred miles was quite bothersome if I must say."
Before giving Shiva much a chance to react to everything, he snatches her lightsaber and inspects it. He then throws it back as quickly as he took it. "You can do better youngling. Wake me when its time to leave" he says and lies down on the grass and closes his eyes.
The entrance leads them straight into the main chamber, however the droids are following and from what they can see ahead, the main chamber may be a dead end as much of it have collapsed.
Several droids are destroyed, however the continued assault force the Jedi and Nym closer and closer together and into the gate that's now wide open. In the back some of the droids now begin to climb on top of each other and starts to jump on top of the duo, these seem to wield dual daggers.
Attacking from three separate directions with surprising speed, the droids viciously engage Nym. the two on his flanks attempt to tie up Nyms use of his weapons, by attempting to pin against Nyms body or deflect them away from his chest area, the third droid makes a play for the area around his throat.
As if they were built to fight force users, the droids get back up and takes little damage from the force push. As they are getting up, more and rushing forth with their weapons to kill the Jedi. One attacks from slightly behind the Jedi, having stood near the doors, another distracts the Jedi from the front and attacks swiftly.
The ground starts to shake as two stone doors open. As the duo is forced to back away a little, metallic hands are placed on their shoulders as the previously deactivated droids have awoken, albeit not all.
Having gathered in a crowd behind them, those that are not trying to restrain the duo have drawn Je'daii katanas and are moving in to kill the intruders.
