Your opinion is not necessarily mine; Your opinion is not fact; Your opinion is not absolute. Your opinion is a perspective.
*T'Rani now started a complex and nimble series of lightsaber attack forms, almost before Ori'verda had gotten on his feet. Attempting to push him towards the end of the hall, near the great statue.*
*The few Mandalorian ships are mopped up fast, and Malan is picked up. The fleet takes up position above Deysum and creates an interdiction field to catch any forces going through the system.*
Wait... you guys are on the verge of winning and then you retreat? Lol. I would have given up in a few turns. xD
You guys are really just eating off my hand aren't you? This is perfect.
*With the enemy forces in retreating from the system, the Engineer division starts repair on the shield Generator, which seems light. The remaining forces now constructs hasty defense further into town where it is easier to defend while militia salvage teams take everything they can from the battlefields, recovering weapons, ammunition and even a few tanks and AA batteries. These things are quickly brought into the city, where the remaining AA is positioned close to the Shield Generator to prevent another "surprise".
While the Engineers and militia work hard at restoring operations, the remaining Clones plan for the worst in case of another attack.*
It does. But you have left your forces there at the mercy of my flagship. That changes a lot of things.
IC: This was what I was waiting for, the Senocra now turned away and exposed its rear deflectors and I order the crew to concentrate fire. My Flagship breaks through the shields and destroys the engine completely. I order a switch to Ion cannons and open fire on every piece of the ship still open to rear fire and causes several electric malfunctions. (This time there is no way you can twist you way out of this with the "superior argument". Its common knowledge that the deflectors can't cover all angles at full power, for you to be able to face Exilium, you would have to divide power to the rear deflectors, and if you didn't. Well, all the more a legit move)
With the Senocra and its B/G (?) leaving to face Exilium, I order the remaining forces there to support the flanks. Each side of my flagship targets a flank and unleashes volleys to each side, making the enemy maneuvers nulls as they can't evade the large amounts of turbolaser fire. Ships before into defensive now surprises the enemy by going into the offensive and both flanks.
Skyrim...Skyrim...Skyrim... Skyrim...Skyrim...Skyrim... Skyrim...Skyrim...Skyrim...Skyrim... Skyrim...Skyrim...Skyrim... Skyrim.. .Skyrim...
Skyrim... Skyrim ...Skyrim...
*The desperate and foolish attempt of an attack was met with a similar tactic as before, one lightsaber forces away the blade being thrust towards her and allowing T'Rani to temporarily lock down both ends of Ori'verdas blade as the other end as a result would be moved forward, while an unfavorable stance for a prolonged lock as he would be able to apply move pressure and force her down, which she let him deliberately. Once far enough down she let herself fall backwards and then proceeds to kick him with both feet in the stomach into the pillar previously behind her.*
OOC: I'm just playing the cards I am given and doing what makes sense. So don't look at me xD
*As soon as Ori'verda landed, T'Rani had decoupled the lightsaber into, using one to deflect the incoming blow with a strike from above, to halt it in one position and the other to strike the hilt (Not decoupling point) and the other end of Ori'verdas blade from below at the exact same time.*
*T'Rani, walked closer until she stood only 10 meters away, there she entered a stance that wasn't familiar to Ori'verda, certainly not mandalorian. She moved the lightsaber in between them and started walking sideways, forcing Ori'verda to do the same in order to maintain tactical balance.
She decided to strike first, seemingly in an instant she managed to cross the distance and struck against Chaos, with a fury and skill not her own.*
*"The Truth!?" The voice said and laughed.
"Truth is in the eye of the beholder. I was once known as Kallig, yes, but I am in fact Darth Nox, Dark lord of the Sith, Member of the Dark Council and Head of the Sphere of Ancient Knowledge. And you are Lok?" Laughter filled the room again.
"You search for answers, but I sense that I am not the one you are looking for. Let me guess, you search for Aloysious? He does not rest here on Korriban. I could help you with that of course. But first, we must deal with your companion, lets see if he is truly worthy of being a Mandalorian, let alone existing.
I believe you came here to fight Ori'verda, but tell me shall we fight with honor?" T'Rani, possessed by Darth Nox, now stepped out of the shadow of one of the pillars, and ignited a red lightsaber.
"Or shall we end it swiftly and be as impatient and rash as you have demonstrated to be on your little quest?" The missing Rangers, 18 of them, also stepped out from shadows all over the hall, all with their weapons pointed at Ori'verda.*
*As the shot hit T'Rani, she vanished. A presence started to fill the room and soon their advanced equipment started to fail again, leaving scanners with an almost constant and unpredictable flickering. Sometimes it seemed to indicate the presence of things which was not there.
For a moment they could have sworn they heard laughter all around them, but were soon distracted by a voice, a female one, coming from somewhere i the great hall.
"Tsk tsk. How uncivilized. First you break into my tomb and now this? Well, I guess it is what to be expected from a Mandalorian, they have always been a shortsighted people."
Now it seemed like shadows popped up here and there only to disappear again all around them. The voice continued;
"Tell me Sith, why do you accept this kind of.. disrespectful behavior? Mandalorian are always best kept on a short leash. Perhaps the Sith have grown weak in the last thousand years... Not even being able to control some of our most willing slaves. Yeess, I can sense it. Outside of this Valley, in the force.. in You."
The voice paused for a moment.
"I am most disappointed in the company I must say. Once I sensed a Sith, I had hoped it was one of my kin, seeking guidance. Why have you come here travelers?"*
There is no challenge in that, all that can be achieved by any player. :P
As usual your logic fails you, as I can neither continue your savegame as another faction. Adding to that Macedon has been wiped out :P
What exactly is the challenge? xD
If it is the best you in Empire creation, I need proof of date, difficulty and so on.
*As the key entered the lock, the door disappeared out in thin air and the shimmering and flickering was gone as well. The ground was still shaking and the path behind them now collapsed entirely, with signs showing that the room they were standing in was soon to follow.
The next corridor was short and soon they found themselves in a great hall leading up to a large statue at the end. Leading up to was two rows of a thick pillars decorated with ancient texts. A few of the pillars had collapsed and was scattered all over the hall.
After taking in what some might consider a fascinating and breathtaking sight, they also now noticed that the room had a certain aura of hostility, like something were offended by their presence. They now noticed a figure at the bottom of the large statue, a figure clad in mandalorian armor, it was T'Rani Stargazer.*
*Due to his unnatural state, Loks estimation of what the ranger could handle fell short, and he suffered massive organ failure. As he was drawing his last few breaths, he remained unconcerned with all but the door.
With Loks mention of Kallig, the ranger looked at him for the last time and attempts to say something but exhales and dies. Once the ranger is dropped on the ground a key falls out of his pocket.
Soon after the place begins to shake and the ceiling starts to collapse.
As Ori'verda destroys the two statues it sets off an earthquake and the room starts to become unstable and the door begins to shimmer, like protected by a force field or, at least something very similar.*
OOC: Tsk tsk. You and your impatience Ori. Tick tock xD
Loks move seemingly neither scared him or affected him in any other way than holding him still. Upon touching the mans mind, it was best described as "clouded" and there wasn't much to learn. Still in his own world, he continued his rambling.
"Door? What door?" He said, as if he for the moment truly had forgotten... "Matters not anymore. I am merely the guardian, I can allow none to enter. Or they too shall fall on their sword. If they are strong enough. For months, strenght of mind kept it at bay, for she was right, true Mandalorians are Strong! But not strong enough. A dam can hold water back, but either the amount of it, or time, will always breach it in the end...
First some disappeared in the tunnels, then some fell pray to the illusions. Soon it was just me and her... She soon spent all her time at his feet, she stopped eating, drinking even talking. But she didn't die, how could she? "
He paused... and looked at his symbols on the wall.
"The door!" He said out loud, as he suddenly remembered something important. "Without the key, none comes through."
In an almost reptile like twist of the neck he once again looked at Lok.
"Illusion! Pawn! Liar! Go away and disturb me no more, let me die with honor! Me, the last Mandalorian in all of the galaxy! Guarding my post... Death and dishonor awaits everyone else, now that Mandalore have fallen...Just as she said, no he. She?"
OOC: Happy Birthday Pain! :)
A suddenly overwhelming pressure against Ori'verdas mind affected his sight again and he could now see and hear more clearly than before. One of the ghosts in front of him he recognized as T'Rani and the others as Mandalorian Rangers. One of them made a seemingly almost desperate jump in front of T'Rani and she was about to proceed through the door, which in this vision was open, and said;
"T'Rani please, we can all feel it, something is not right about this place. We should leave, there are others places to set up a base!"
"For the last time, hold your tongue Danzik! Your cowardice is dishonorable. This is the perfect hiding place, between the wildlife here and the presence of forces weaker minds like yours might succumb to will keep both the curious and our enemies at bay. No one comes here. Not even the Sith cares for this place as much as they once did."
"Or maybe it is because that even the Sith recognize that some things should stay in the past and best be left alone. Who knows what is beyond that door!?"
"Silence! Any true and strong of mind Mandalorian will be safe. Only those weak of mind and body will succumb to any... presence.. we might come across. Now..No mater what, remember to.."
Ori'verda snapped out of it again and found himself alone in the room.
OOC: Funny you should mention a key Milos xD
*As Lord Lok proceeded he started to sense a presence up ahead him in the darkness. It was one of the Mandalorians seemingly. The path that Lord Lok had chosen led him to a circular chamber and in it was a Ranger, but even as he entered the chamber the ranger didn't pay attention to him. The room was a dead end, all over the walls where red markings, painted by hand in markings similar to those in the previous chamber.
Upon closer inspection, Lok noticed that the Rangers hands were bloody, he had seemingly cut his own hand and painted the walls with his own blood. The markings was inconsistent and scattered, but some meaning could be interpreted from them. They stated; "The doors keep all within, and all without".
The Ranger now turned around and looked straight at Lok, he wasn't wearing a helmet and appeared old and frail. His eyes had grown dull and gray.
"No noo.. nooo... You are not here. You are not here. No one is here. Only past the door there is life. Or no life. Or something else. Something... in between, something Beyond life."
He turned away and ignored Lord Lok once again, returning to his drawing of of the markings on the wall.
Ori'verda soon found his path blocked with a large door, with two statues "guarding" it. In the middle was a key hole.
For a moment it seemed like he heard a whisper in the room.
Inspecting his surroundings, he discovers that the room looks like it is on the verge of collapsing, with large cracks on the walls and roof, making the use of forced entry seem like a risky endeavor . All except the door, which seemed like it could have been made yesterday. It seemed almost unnatural.
Once again he heard the whispers, this time his view dimmed a little and for a moment he it seemed like ghosts appeared and that he could hear them talking, about what he couldn't hear, but they they were definitely talking Mandoa.*
*The dialect Ori'verda was studying was very old, at least a millennia, and thus not easily translated. However from what he'd be able to make out, it was describing a family history, mentioning different titles and positions in the various Empires the family had served, or ruled.
It didn't take Lord Lok long to determine that the blood wasn't native to anything on Korriban. An analysis would reveal it to be from a humanoid, in this case most likely Mandalorian. From where the dagger was and further into the tomb was a trail of blood, going through one of three paths. Another of the of the tunnels was collapsed, leaving two options for proceeding.
What is ahead remains unknown, as scanners for some mysterious reason wasn't able to reveal anything and for some reason the maps that Lord Lok brought with him didn't fit the layout of the tomb.*
OOC: Btw, didn't realize that there was a third person with you guys. Lol
*Moments before the death of the last Hssiss Lok felt something inside the mind of the Hssiss, but due to their quick death there was no way to investigate further.
Proceeding further into the tomb, they would pass through a long hallway only to find themselves in yet another room. This one was filled with scriptures on the walls. In the room they soon noticed ashes on the ground and several cases of equipment. Right beside the equipment was a Kal, a Mandalorian dagger, and on it seemingly blood.*
*Awoken from their slumber due to the disturbances going on in the tomb. A pair of full grown Hssiss appears out of thin air behind Ori'verda, previously invisible and resting on the corpse of the Terentatek.
In a single jump one of them ambushes Ori'verda from behind while he is still dealing with the Pelko bugs. The other one jumps past Ori'verda, not fearing the fire and attacks Lok, whom are equally distracted with holding off both the bugs and the flames.*
*As the two of them was studying their surroundings they started to notice a foul smell coming from inside the tomb. Just inside of the entrance was a small chamber, not natural and not built as a part of the tomb, but carved out seemingly by a large creature. The creature, a Terentatek lay dead up against the wall near the door that leads further into the tomb. It had scorch marks all over its body and a large gab in its stomach.
By now Lord Lok would have noticed the increase in dark side presence. It was mostly eminating from inside the tomb, but also from the corpse of the Terentatek, and from the down below them, in the ground. Soon the ground around Lord Lok started seemingly move as dozens of Pelko Bugs, attracted to force sensitives, started to swarm him.*
For the glory of Arse!
You could always try life as a bisexual. That way you would increase your chances by a 100%!
I love cats, so I guess this means that I also love Valve? xD
Makes me wanna watch Voyager again. But its just too time consuming xD
Well, good to known you are safe then. Good luck

Imperial Walkers! :P
I Denmark we pay on average about 2 dollars per Liter. A gallon is about 4 liters yes? People here would kill for your gas prices America! xD
Good to know you are still alive these days xD
The feeling is mutual Sweden!
I molested my classmates and I do it every day.
Lol. Just noticed.
In any case, I didn't make these xD
As Ori'verda lands in the ruins, there are several pathways leading underground, but they seem old, dirty and unused for a long time. Suddenly he becomes aware of large stadium-like lamps being turned on all around the clearing filling it with a sharp light.
A dozen shielded containers are revealed hidden in the piles of trash and junk as the heavily armed and armored Red Moon mercenaries inside storm out along with destroyer droids, all which open fire on Ori'verda in the ruins.
From the supposedly empty halls below him Ori'verda can hear the very familiar sound of Buzz droids.
900 meters away, on top of an large inactive garbage disposal droid, is Nunes. Laying flat on his stomach with a high caliber sniper rifle, watching the show.*
*The scans reveal several massive droids moving large piles of junk and trash around. In between them is a clearance with a small concrete structure. With a couple of heavily armed guards guarding a door.*
OOC: Okay, Jester does not feel like changing his post... Meh, I will take Adenns advice and retcon it.
*As the several ships in the enemy fleet turns to face the rebels, the entire fleet now rabidly advances as the balance in terms of firepower turn in favor to the Fels. Spearheaded by the Imperious and the Nemesis and with the Pelleons on the flanks the fleet presses it's advantage and attacks all the closest ships with everything they have. Strike class cruiser in between the capital ships target enemy Ardent-class frigates, which have taken several casualties by the HP Gun.
All bombers and Starfighters are launched and set to attack the enemy fleet accompanied by the Ardent-class frigates and vigil corvettes. Starfighters are ordered to engage enemy fighters and keep their corvettes occupied while bombers target the capital ships. This multi strike force moves ahead of the main fleet, being closely followed by the Capital ships.
As the new enemy fleet (Jesters fleet) is detected on the flank, the Pelleons on the Right flank (Or left, not giving me much to work on here. Lol) turn to face the incoming fleet and readies for the assault. The Imperial fleet makes a micro-jump towards the Fel fleet but are caught with their shields down and the 15 Pelleons destroys several ships before they get their shields up and disable several more*
OOC: Jester, before you complain, a micro-jump is the only way to explain your move. Lol
Cronus started to smile. Lord Kairn was being predictable and paranoid as always.
"Impressive, get any more red-headed and you are almost there to being a true Sith. The clones are not here to my sake, they are merely a formality, I was going to promote Jester to a rank more suitable, but I guess we will decide that in another way.
But alright, since your paranoia have seemingly replaced the foresight that is common among our beloved Inquisitors. I shall humor you."
Cronus signals the clone troops and they leave the room. From a secret compartment in his armor, one of many, he pulls out a lightsaber and takes position. Staring Lord Kairn in the eyes he yells.
"Niteris, Jester. Leave this room with the troops".
OOC: Let the fun begin!
Btw, lets takes this duel slow because considering we are both very powerful, I don't think any of us can pull that many moves out of our sleeves before they are already countered.
It's because they aren't grammatically correct xD
IC. Jesters attempt at escape have created confusiong among the Mandalorian ranks. The 2nd Imperial fleet (Now renamed, at least I have gotten this far in my organization. Lol) seizes the oppertunity and makes a full offensive and open fire. All units have permission to fire at will. Bombers target the brigdes covered by starfighters and frigates.
The Imperious Class and Scythes unleash volleys into the enemy fleet. Dealing massive casualties.
*Concerned about what could have made so many dissapear, I draw my lightsaber, just to be on the safe side and continue to explore the area*
Well, after the Silentium we should be weakened. I would not call any of the current factions a superpower.
