Your opinion is not necessarily mine; Your opinion is not fact; Your opinion is not absolute. Your opinion is a perspective.
OOC: Wasn't sure if I was restrained or not xD
*Almost instinctively the man tries to get out of the chair, despite being more or less futile due to the restraints. As he looks at the knife he starts to panic again.
"Alright! I'll tell you what I know!.. There's a rumor that Nunes and the Demon of Iego are one and the same, and that the Demon of Iego have a secret hideout below a large dumpyard outside the city. If they really are the same, my guess would be that you'd find him there.
Thats all I know, I swear!"*
*One of the Randons steps forward and says.
"You speak of laws, dignity and respect, but but by whose measurements? By ours, you have broken our laws and disrespected the sovereignty of our nation!"
The Randon Chief of State gave him a disgruntled look and he stops and steps behind him. The Chief of State clears his throat.
"Forgive my young colleague here, this whole situation have everyone running a little tense, however his words ring true. Thus I must also ask, what guarantee do I have that you will leave? I have to merely look north and ask; When does your Hegemony leave the Sector of Bonadan? Or perhaps Raxus? Did you promise them also? To leave again?"
he had more on his mind, but for the sake of formality, he rested his case.*
*The droids sensors pick up movement in front of the entrance and vibrations in the ground.
"There seems to be a patrol up ahead, according to sensors, maybe 5 Soldiers and a walker of some sort. I'm unable to figure out exactly which one.
Sorah, have Jason confirm"*
"Yes. To many would attract attention. However, we will bring a Squad of ACD1's and Two DS3 droids if we ever need a distration. Something we procured from Apex Industries Consolidated."
As for Ion based weaponry, take a gander on what we have on the ship. We have several crates of confiscated weaponry that may serve your needs.
*As all seems lost, a force of 200 cavalry comes from the other end of the Cair Andros fortifications and tramples down the orcs from behind, causing a panic among the orcs. Due to the fire and the walls, the orcs and men outside the walls only hear the screams of their brethren getting slaughtered.
The infantry kills of the rest of the orcs and throw those whom had reached the archers down.
Easy now, Pain haven't even gotten out of his suicide fight alive yet xD
OOC: Not sure what you mean by when "the ECMS's effect was done". There are no mention of it being a temporary effect.
The MAAT's were prepared this time for the second volley, while the missiles they launched at the enemy troops, did not cause much damage, they did buy the MAAT's time to cross the distance and the gunners opened fire as they flew over the ridge, targeting the rocket troops. As the enemy rocket troops opened fire again, those that manged to hit the MAAT only caused them to crash into the mountain side where they were located. Many more MAAT's when down before they crossed the ridge but as they did they made a steep acceleration upwards as they moved up into the upper Atmosphere in order to lose any missiles that were following them.
A few of the snipers manages to get a visual from some of the highest buildings in the city and they pick of enemy snipers as they target troops in the entrenchment.
On the front line Zoras recieves word that the other Federation division is attacking the imperials from behind as planned. "Good, they got our message" He says. Then he see the smoke canisters and gives the order. Hiding behind buildings in the edge of the city, AT-AE's fire their long range mortar rounds into the smoke, soldiers now stand up in the trenches as aim at the smoke awaiting the enemy troops pop out.
"Wait for it..." Zoras says, as he do not want to reveal positions or waste ammunition. The PAT's start firing, detecting something in the smoke and unloads their rapid fire lasers into the smoke. As soon as the enemy troops appear from the smoke, Zoras yells "Open Fire!" and they are met by a wall of laser fire, behind the trenches over a thousand battle droids, the rest having been destroyed by the bombardment along with almost eight hundred troops, come up and fire their Slug Throwers and laser cannons.*
Go to nr 13 xD
Uhmm. Do you know what the UN is?
Russia is part of the UN security council.
*The US got 1 more day to comply to Russian demands or we will forcibly remove the forces stationed in Europe.*
This should put some pressure on the US. And as Jolee have already demonstrated. Europe is not America's bitch.
I gave up on you a long time ago.
But I have my reasons. Some of them have already been proven many times and the rest I am sure will be proven soon enough. But for now no need to make a list.
NameGen@ I moved on the minute Jolee decided to wipe you out. I am only doing this because your ability not to learn and not try to exploit everything is almost non-existant.
The problem is not with the GM's. It's with the players if anything. They are just as responsible as the GM's to make sure the viewpoints are explored. As Adenn have already given a nice example of. Just because you CAN do something, doesn't mean you should.
It's really not that hard to think about your actions a second time.
*Cronus learned from his mistakes from the last duel and predicted Kairn would seek to distance himself. He used his free hand to grab Kairns hand and direct it away from himself followed by giving Kairn a knee to the stomach.*
*At positions in risk of being overrun, the troops now vanished into underground tunnels and sealed the way behind them. On the surface thousands on troops on both sides are killed by the Acclamator artillery.
At various location behind the troops of the 501st, teams of troops now pooped up everywhere, ambushing the enemy troops and taking the assaulting forces completely by surprise, to shortly after vanish down into the tunnels and sealing the way behind them if necessary.
The sandstorm now hits the area and reduces visibility greatly.*
True, but the lie is often easier to believe than the truth, and people do not always want to hear the truth.
I could give many RL examples of this, but this would be a subject better to avoid discussing on the internet xD
In case everybody forgot, I proved in the beginning of this war than tactics work better than numbers.
Its a brilliant invention by Darth Kryats Empire. Imperious class Star Destroyers can deploy them. The more there are the bigger the Interdiction field.
But I did.
Hold on everyone.
The rules dictate I be allowed to respond before he makes his next comment. So technically Jolee's second move is null. And if it is null, then he can't be arrested for something he haven't done yet.
Meh. Potaeto - Potato ;D
I know Mace, I read everything in your War Room. Of all people in the NGR.. I never thought you would be the one to see reason about that situation. But graditude for the attempt at least.
Good thing the NSO screwed it up with the Unity, which ****** off everyone. Lol
Lynx, Adenn have given you a lot of No's yes, I have read the suggestions you repsented to Adenn, but most of them I can understand why he said no. Although I was poor at explaining it. If you remember correctly I also gave you a lot of No's when I was GM. Over Xfire I have mnay times offered to help you present reasonable suggestions that would most likely get GM approval, but so far you have turned down my sugggestions.
I also offered you the chance 3 times (al least) to prove yourself to me and eventually join the GA, but you ruined that chance yourself.
As for the event, I agree with you that it seems like Adenn is just ebing cruel to you, giving you an empire and then taking it away from you. If anything he should not have given it in the first place.
And yes, most of us are arrogant selfish basterds¨who all want our own little empire to control. But as you have realized now, you get nowhere alone and to use a renowned phrase; "With great power comes great resposibility". As a leader over a faction, you need to be prepared for people teaming up on you and you must learn that even if you want peace, other might not wish it.
I still remember when the Silentium attacked, not long after the NGR broke their alliance with us, they were so angry that we didn't help prevent their fall that the teamed up with the Sith and plotted against us. The Mandalorians were still a little angry after the Cold War. The GA risked having to fight 3 factions AND the Silentium. If not for a little luck, we would have faced same odds as you are now. (Or were since you killed yourself -_-).
Point is, if your are going to make an Empire like this, you need to take into account that there is always a risk and things will not always be fair, not even if you are "the good guy".
Okay.. All done ;D
Btw. Praxis, never thought you would go through with this. :P
OOC: True, but a (Only need 1) 50 kilmometer wide ball of steel going at high speed into a shipyard will cause enough damage to casue secondary explosions + massive structural damage. And as for your fleet being in front of the shipyards. I can only refer to your own comment above. "not all ships are on the same horizontal line" ;)
Technically I haven't destroyed anything in 1 comment. So I haven't breached any rules. That is why I left it to you. Also I could have won this battle if I wanted to, since Ori'verda was well aware of what was going on and decided not to participate because he feels uncomfortable attacking Mandalorians. It would not have been entirely unfair to pull in another fleet. You should take this as a victory for Bestine and its people indstead of a defeat for your military capabilities.
*The Hutt turns around and as soon as Orix reaches the doorway, a Bounty Hunter comes out of hiding near the door and activate the blast doors, sealing the room shut.*
Update: Not feeling the inspiration! Lol
Thanks. Doing my best to keep people informed ;)
Just thinking about attacking that sends a chill down my back!
*He calms down a bit and says;"Even if I did know anything, I'm a dead man for telling you. So why should I?" *
*The thug is looking around, half panicking and confused.
"I don... I don't know anything.." He manages to mutter.*
Nunes walks down a hall while whistling cheerfully. He enters a room filled with monitors and a few security guards. Many of the screens where dedicated to monitoring the rich and powerful on Iego, especially other politicians.
"Whats the status on our Mandalorian friend who has been asking around for me. Did group two take care of it yet?" He ask one of the security personal.
"Uhm, no sir. He escaped on his ship before the second team had a chance to shoot it." the man nervously replies.
"What do you mean they didn't shoot!? All they had to do was follow the Mandalorian once he escaped, to his ship and open fire on it. I payed good money for those rocket launchers!" He says, as he starts to get a little red headed.
"Sorry sir, but the team reports it was cloaked and that it all happened so very fast they didn't have a chance to do anything."
"Don't make excuses for them. Just because it is cloaked doesn't mean it isn't there. All they had to do was aim at where the Mandalorian seemingly disappears, pull the trigger and watch the fireworks! Incompetent fools." Nunes sighs and thinks for a moment. "Ahh well, I guess it is my fault for bothering with theatrics and fake assassination attempts. First off, get some screens up from my hidden cameras in the office building and get the Red Moon on the comm. I'm calling in a favor..."
At the office building, Ori'verda would soon hear a rolling sound from both in front and behind him, and the sound of them deploying and raising shields. In the silence the distinct clacking sounds of their fleet on the floor filled the air.*
*The hooded man chuckles lightly. "Well that certainly was entertaining! Although I had hoped for something that lasted a bit longer. And for that friend of yours to join in of course. But I guess he is probably out to find me by other means." He says as he lowers the hood and reveals his face.
"I'm sure he'll find what he is looking for though. Anyway, no time for fun these days I'm afraid. I have an election to win!" He says and chuckles lightly once more.
"Oh, and before I forget. Welcome to Iego! Sadly I may have strapped myself with a bomb as you can see. Hope you've had a pleasant stay!" He says with a large grin on his face which disappears as the figure turns out to be a droid with a poison gas device attacked to it, and the hologram projecting Golrin Nunes shuts down.
Outside the establishment, a warning sign had been out up. - WARNING. GAS LEAKAGE. -
The timer counts down from 5...4..
*Before long, a group of of Red Moon thugs enters the establishment where the Mandalorian is located. Among them a man in a hooded cloak, hiding his face. People in the bar senses what is happening and clears out surprisingly fast. Almost like it was something they'd practiced or done many times.
The hooded man sits down on a chair in the middle of the room. The Red Moon thugs give him a look for a sign of permission, and as the man nods slightly one of the thugs shout; "Grap'im boys!" and they run towards the Mandalorian.*
I miss this guy :(
*Accompanied by the dog like animal, Malan walked out of the castle and continued down to his Starfighter. Lucky had it prepped and ready. The creature stopped some distance away from the starfighter and Malan climbed in, entered new co-ordinates into the Nav-computer and returned to Federation space.*
*Malan was not sure if he was relieved or disappointed. No matter, it was not his concern. As the mandalorian offered him back the case he refused,
"Keep it, one day it may yet interest you, for the thing about chaos, it is beholden to no one and may one day set foot upon Mandalore. But then again, I'll leave the dull philosophies to old men and the Jedi.
So long Mandalorian, and thank you for your time.
Oh, and since you and I have some unresolved issues, lets hope we do not meet a third time shall we" Malan says, as he prepares to leave.*
"Let me start over then.
The Nexus Enclave was created in the shadow of the Cold War by a group of people coming together from many different factions and species from all over the galaxy. They had all come to the conclusion that what was needed in the galaxy, was not another Republic or Empire, but an Organisation working in the shadows to preserve Civilization and hold Chaos at bay in times of conflict, be it war or politics.
It has many purposes and missions, you, just as myself, will only belongs to a very small part of that. You would become an operative to help the Order maintain a certain amount of influence within the various factions and be at disposal for any operations that may take place in whatever section of the galaxy you may be in.
As for the greater good, that is my term, how I myself define my own role inside the organization. The official goal of the organisation is as I've said, to maintain order. This galaxy have been in almost constant for a century or more, engulfed in chaos.
I hope this clarifies the subject for you. I cannot tell you anymore for that is all I know. As you can imagine, the Enclave is not privy to share its secrets. As with me, you will only know that which they believe you need to know."
Malan takes another sip of his drink.*
*"Inside the box, you'll find information and instructions regarding a recruitment into the Nexus Enclave. You have probably heard of it before. And just for the sake of getting it out of the way, no, it is not a terrorist organization. Merely a faction interesting on maintaining a certain degree of order in the galaxy.
This box that you have been given, is a one time offer only and with it comes no entitlements or promises. Only serving what this order considers part of the greater good. The oaths that you are required to take are very committing and breaking them means a termination of the contract.
Also, it should be noted that at times you can be asked to act against the Mandalorian people, even your own clan. To sum it up, this is a choice between that which you have fought for your whole life, which you to some extend may continue to do, or stepping up and fight for the whole galaxy and the sentients that live in it whenever the order calls. Be it Mandalorian, Federation, Imperial or Hutt."
Malan paused and took a sip of his drink. He had no idea what it was, but it wasn't as bad as he thought.*
"If it isn't to much trouble, I'd like that."
What an ugly animal he thought to himself as he saw the pet and tried to ignore the smell.
From inside his coat he now took the package that he'd taken with him, he unpacked it and revealed a black metal case with a series of engravings on it and a symbol. The symbol representing the Nexus Enclave, with the phrase; "Knowledge is power" below it. The case was sealed with a DNA and voice recognition lock.
Malan placed it on the table front of Ori'verda.*
OOC: Fyi, already told Ori, but everyone else might know as well. I really don't like others taking away narrative control from my own character, at least without asking. Anyway, moving on.
*As he spotted Ori'verda on the balcony he stood still and studied the Mandalorian for a moment and then spoke out loud; "Greetings Mandalorian, I presume you are the one named Ori'verda? I have come a long way to speak with you. If you can spare some of your time that is."
He wasn't usually so polite, but his orders were VERY specific. Whoever gave him the orders probably knew of his "Gungan mouth", as his father would say... Now there's a man he hadn't even been thinking of for a long time. Before the Mandalorian would notice,he put the thought to rest and silently awaited an answer.*
I'm glad I can serve as your inspiration xD
Truly a dream of mine. :P
Didn't you technically lose? xD
What's up Milos? Did you really just dismantle the Hegemony? xD
Yes. My turn
Have you always been an *******?
My personal character was never in the event, so I shouldn't be given any. Carry on ;)
*As they have come far enough away from the scene the Thane shuttles split in different directions and out of the traffic, no longer needing the cover of traffic and still cloaked disappear into the city.*
OOC: I doubt Buzz droids knows civilian vehicles apart from enemy vehicles. No IFF. Poor civilians xD
*The two remaining shuttles cloak as the last squad is on board a thane, leaving moments before the Howler gunships arrive and mingling with civilian traffic as much as possible to avoid any attempt at detection.
Just as the Howler gunships cross the roof, the bomb in the hall below detonates in a large explosion, providing further distraction and pause for the escaping Thanes, from both gunships and Shock Troopers.*
OOC: OP Dragon much?
*The Thane that the Dragon have attached it too deploy fares in its face in order to break off while diverting full power to the engines. The second Thane easily avoids the fire and now targets the Dragons wings, littering it with holes.
The Rangers activate their Jetpacks and fly to a point in the sky where there is seemingly nothing until the third Thane uncloaks and takes them on board. However one of the Ranger squads is staying on the roof, where they open fire at the Dragons eyes.
T'Rani is nowhere to be seen*
OOC: Just FYI, I think its big of me going with this (Dragon). xD
*As the Dragon breaks through the skylight, two Thane shuttles decloak above and open fire directly down with turrets and half a dozen missiles hit the dragon, engulfing it and Ori'Verda in flames.
"As you wish, T'Rani mumbles to herself."
All over the room, many of the delegates had been killed trying to get out. The Shock Troopers elsewhere in the building was caught of guard by the automated defenses and slowed down the closed blastdoors. Outside the main door into the Assembly Hall, the Shock Troopers got ambushed by the third Ranger team, who joined up with the others.*
*If T'Rani was surprised about the Manda'lors presence, no one could see anyway because of her helmet.
"Why am I here? Have you looked around you and seen your fellow delegates and representatives? It's quite pathetic. We have truly fallen low as a people. Since when does the Mandalorian people cater to the masses, the weak and the desperate. We rule through strength, not charades!"
She paused for moment and then continued.
"But enough talk" She made a nod to the other Rangers and they started herding the delegates into one end of the hall, the one opposite of the door out. Near the delegates they placed a large device with a timer on it, set to 5 minutes. As they were doing this they dropped several bags of durasteel swords and moved away.
"If anyone here wants to make it out alive, they'll have to fight their way out."
T'Rani moved in front of Ori'Verda, her Rangers behind her all with drawn blades. "I myself challenge you to a duel, by our old ways, you have chose a weapon... Manda'lor" She said, the last word as it gave her a sour taste in her mouth.*
Well, not THAT much have happend. Me and Ori did the Ruusan event, but other than that nothing really.
*On Mandalore, T'Rani was sitting in the back of a Thane shuttle with four other rangers. Two shuttles of the same type, each with a group of Rangers as well had just passed through the security perimeter. The benefit of being a Ranger had always been that no one asked any questions and no one stood in the way.
Up ahead was the Hegemony Assembly Hall and a meeting was taking place. Hundreds if not more officials from all over was gathered in order to decide... well... something. These days no one really knows what is going on in these meeting. Its not like these representatives have any real power in the Hegemony anyway.
The shuttles sat down on a platform nearby, all the Rangers now cloaked and exited the shuttles, heading for the large building and the shuttles took off again. They had to go get something while the rangers were moving into position. 15 minutes later, the Intercom crackles a little and a voice whispers
"T'Rani, we are in position. Group 2 have taken the security room and disabled communications to the outside. Shall we proceed?"
"Yes, its time to begin. Lock the doors to the main hall and trigger the alarm. Give it 30 seconds the trigger the automated defenses, have them target everything that moves and then lock all blastdoors throughout the building"
As the alarm began, T'Rani decloaked inside the Assembly room along with the two squads she brought in with her. The immediately dispatched any guards in the room. It was time to begin*
Arrest this man!
Well, I thank you kind sir for putting the Danish Frogmen on the list xD
*Was the Mandalorian serious? Hmph. Who cares. He filled the one glass with water and the other with Bonadan Whisky, the latter he himself drank in one swoop.
"The man you are looking for maybe out of your reach, if we are talking about the same person here at least. Then again, how many Mandalorian deserters join the Federation eh?" He said as he chuckled over a joke that only on old war veteran like himself understood
"But if I were you, your best guess would be the Embassy District. That's where people with diplomatic immunity lives anyway, working for the Federation or not."
He poured another drink for himself and then continued, this time speaking a little louder.
"Good luck Mandalorian in getting your friend, he doesn't belong here....". The Cantina fell silent as most were now starring at the Mandalorian in silence.
"Oh, and that's 3 Credits for the water."*
When going thousands of years back in history, I remain skeptical of many things. I wouldn't call his existence an undeniable fact, but I wouldn't think his existence a myth either. Usually even a myth/legend/deity or otherwise, is based upon real events or real people. Whether they really were the son of god or not.
As for "poorly researched junk" on the Atheist group. Somehow I don't doubt it it happens (I've stopped paying attention of late to be honest). But it is common for other parties in such things as well.
OOC: Also waste of time as the RP system makes your moves null.
OOC: Since Praxis have resigned as GM, I guess I should wrap this up... I will make another comment, give people a day to chip in then just finalize this I guess.
*The meeting resumed, and the representatives made a short comment that they needed more time to think and asked if the Federation had heard any news of the Ruusan conflict. However they were unable to make contact with General-Secretary Thain, casing many of the representatives to whisper among each other. The Federation Senator stood up.
"As you can all see, we have lost contact with Mr. Thain. It would seem that the Mandalorians have entered the system of Ruusan itself, which confirms some disturbing reports that we have just received.
Not long ago, B.A.C.T.A contacted the Federation reporting that the Mandalorians opened fire on their ships as they were preparing to provide aid once the conflict escalated. As a result and out of fear for their employees. The B.A.C.T.A Fond have withdrawn from the Ruusan sector. There are still many in the Ruusan sector but they fear an attempt to retrieve them will result in more hostility.
It would seem not even neutral humanitarian groups can be expected to have their neutrality respected. And if I may say; this further proves the Mandalorian intentions are not honest."
The Senator sat down once again*
"Had it been the other way around, we would have done the same for the Mandalorians.
As for other neutral systems, they have all given their consent for our transport ships to pass through."
Really? THAT's what you have to say? xD
Well, thanks for reading, I guess?
EDIT: You happy now? :P
I had heard of Dawkins before, however until maybe 6 years ago (I'm 20), I didn't even know what Atheism was, however I quickly realized I had been one most of my life.
I didn't need these guys to figure it out.
*you shouldn't listen to atheist saying the same. ' 3rd last line.
I admit that it MAY have.
Have you not read anything I've talked about. Personal gain/empowerment, political objectives?
I cannot admit to what I do have no reason to believe. To me there is nothing to admit. Your evidence is the propaganda Stalin himself spouted all his life (That Atheism was his main reason). You haven't even given me any reasoning behind your statements besides "He's atheist and persecuted religious people".
The thing with his officers was just an example.
Also, if he really hated religion that much, then why did he use it as propaganda during WW2? After the Nazis invaded he revived the Orthodox Church in order to gain public support, in fact going so far as portray Russia as the "defender of Christian civilization".
So we are back at my original statements, Stalin did things for himself. Not for anyone or anything.
"religious people are inferior, religious people are monsters, religion and religious people are responsible for all the problems in the world" - Just as I don't listen to fx Christians saying the same about Atheists, you should listen to Atheist. Those kind of statements are the results of things like poor education, frustration or perhaps outright stupidity. In the end, it is not the belief that is at fault, but the person.
Why would Stalin use Religion as a tool when he saw it as folly? He might as well use Atheism and then make sure/or hope to become a man Above god, not below. Key difference, when religion have served as a tool in the past, it was always "A man under God". If anything, Stalin didn't want to be "below" anyone. That's just not who he is.
Why did the USSR keep it up? Well Stalin was a great war hero ya know... :P
As for their official ideal, stop right there pal. That was communism xD Stalin thought that "his" communism would improve without religion. So in the end, it was also to further empower communism (Besides just himself).
Now as for killing people because of their religion, I don't doubt it, nor do I deny it. However this is not something limited to religious people, if it was, then i would be much more open to the idea of the cause being atheism. He killed people for many reasons, one of the very first thing he did was kill most of his officers in the army because he was paranoid.
In the end, it was Stalins greed, paranoia and quest for personal empowerment that motivated him. His beliefs have no doubt had its influence to a greater or lesser extent. And yes, I can agree to that religious people have been persecuted by Atheist states, but in the end. Bottom line: Not because of Atheism. There are lots of other, and more logical reasons, motivations for those actions.
In my personal opinion (Not supported by any facts tho I'm afriad :P ) I think Stalin persecuted religious people because religion represented one of the oldest and in some times greatest display of power, and he liked the idea of defying that.
Without religion, they would have more power and control over the people. It just so happened that Atheism was a useful tool in this process, whether they themselves believed it or not.
I mean even their flag was two tools crossing. xD Everything in the USSR was designed as tools. "Each to their purpose" is what it promoted.
But, perhaps, for arguments sake, it could be considered a cause. But certainly not THE cause. Atheism isn't about the purging of religion, that is a personal cause. Just as the crusades probably had more to do with power and less to do with faith when it comes to those who were the leaders of religion back then. The same principle is present in the USSR. Atheism, just as religion, can easily be used as a tool in the quest of power.
Atheism in the USSR was a means to an end. Not the Cause.
Also, don't use Fox News as a source, from what I hear from friends in the US it is very biased and hardly neutral. Not that I actually bothered to read it. xD
I once fell through the boat along with all of my crew. Was then stuck below the boat, I'm sorry, Ship! (Reference) xD
*Malan doesn't answer looks in the personal files for the two. But nothing seems to stand out. He starts looking through the others considering if he had the wrong files. As the Soldier and the boy seems to still be waiting for an answer he responds.
"The name is Drayson. And you are?" he asks as he throws away the files, obviously useless (or redacted) and keeps eye contact the the boy.*
The Rangers made it over the river and got off their horses. They took up position and prepared new arrows. Faramir crossed as the last along with the stranglers, he didn't leave people behind.
As soon as the rest of the Harad Vanguard was in sight, the Rangers led loose the arrows of their Longbows. Beside them on the ground, lay many more arrows. They were prepared to have use for all of them
Halo RP? xD
I have no idea what its purpose is. Lol
Nah np, me and Ten have a lot of internal humor. I guess it might not have been easy to see :P
You guys are just jealous. That's why you wanna bomb it xD
We were joking Praxis xD
A Snowbird called Buck? Really? Lol
But you didn't have an air units at that time :P
"Efficiency!" and "Providing meat for the meat-grinder!" xD
Why.... WHY? I liked Snowbird :(
There are no Reliance class vessels on Chalcedon. So why are they there? And you never needed any protection for your troop transports as you saw ;)
PS. See what you have done? Now Praxis want the Airspeeder to be called "Buck" and I have lost all diplomatic leverage. There is no denying it, this is your fault xD
Hey, you're the one who brought those annoying Gunships into everything. I was content with my MAAT's. xD
Now Praxis have the "I told you so rights" because he believed you would do exactly that. I said "If we don't do it, neither do they. MAAT's will be fine"
Now there is no telling what Praxis wants included in the army composition. We had a delicate balance me and Praxis. I blame you mister! xD
Don't misunderstand me. I like the Reliance ship and I acknowledge its strategic worth, but I dislike the effect I think it will have on land battles.
Just to clear that up xD
And our article is a not wikithatexplainseverythingforlazypeople xD
Maybe I am understating my forces, but these were my own estimates of our forces.
4000 KR1 Battle Droids
100 Recon Speeders
1 Reliance-Class Assault ship
Why not just look up the Scythe and Nebula on Wookiepedia?
As for the Silphen, I cannot speak for it as I did not design it.
And the CP system have been scrapped until we can work out its problems. Should we ever succeed in that, we will see if people want it/if it is still necessary.
Looks like the Federation is gonna be interesting between us three. Lol
You would have fx grey jedi trade abilities with both the Sith and the Jedi, even when they have sworn loyalty to one of them?
And there is a million abilities and not enough players for everyone to even get the chance of learning them within the respective faction.
Edit: Sorry, sounded kinda hostile :P In theory, yes people can learn an unlimited amount of abilities, but short of writing them all into the skill tree, or at least doubling the number of roleplayers. Even if we used it, I think people will eventually stop doing it/skipping.
This discussion is getting old.
If the Mandalorians are unhappy being credited with turning the tide,then give it to someone else.
This is close to the system we already had and it didn't work.
As for whether a player deserves a point or not after an event. So far the best solution is letting everyone who participates decide along with the GM's (In here lies the maturity you seek, I would hope anyway).
When it comes stopping characters becoming OP. I have been making the skills trees in such a way that if say the Jedi, have 29 Slots they can fill. They are only allowed to fill 20 of those and their char is maxed. That way no chars is able to do everything.
Fenris got the right idea and have explained many of our motives.But we are also re-writing because there are too many disagreements on the past few months.
Personally; If we were to do it like AK, I can say now I will have no interest in returning to the RP. The PA coming into existence the way it did, the Core worlds being loyal to the Sith/Welcomed them back just because the Ten wasn't around the respond and the EU controlling the Satellite galaxies, justifying their strength. But this is just me, take it as you will.
It will come eventually. We are still finishing up on some stuff. Our reveal today was to know how many support this.
Afterwards we will present all our material on this group.
There were many reasons that I left and I was hated for all of them. How dare I point out these things!?!? Lol
Good luck with this.
This comment has been posted in a private group.
Confirmed. Again :P
Saturday Night Live!?!.. WHAT THE **** IS THIS?!
*Having gathered 900 Rohirrim in Helms Deep, Theodred follows the smoke and path of the raiders and orders a charge against the Dunlendings after coming up behind them. When in range the vanguard of the force consisting of archers on horseback, pick off those they can spot having spears while the main force of 700 Rohirrim crosses the distance between the Dunlendings and the Rohirrim archers and plunges into the unorganized ranks.*
OOC: Do you want us to play some of the characters? I could play Gandalf I guess.
The problem is, that if we include more evil factions than what I mentioned, it will be impossible for the good factions to win. It will already be hard enough with Mordor and Harad.
Anyway, how many players do we have? Unless we have enough for all these factions you suggest. The proposition is IMO moot..
So far we are 4 in this pic. 5 With Jolee?
Is it Christmas already? :D
I will most likely be playing AC3, but might stop by if I don't lose track of time :)
Not like this. Bakura is a capital world, until you are a faction leader, or got permission from him. There is no "Secret".
So is this something Pain allowed you to build? Because if not then I think this is null.
*The enemy frigates starts to take losses from the numerous Palleons despite their evasive maneuvers, being unable to evade so many of them and enemy Corvettes are losing shields to the intense firepower brought on them. Corvettes take little damage thanks to the cover of the larger ships, they open fire on the enemy bombers as soon as they get in range and re-position to cover the capital ships. Thanks to superior numbers the starfighters are able to both overpower the enemy starfighters while other wings target the bombers, inflicting heavy casualties with the aid of the Corvettes, while staying away from the enemy Corvettes and point defenses.
The Emperor's Justice registered moderate drops in the front shield. Power is diverted from rear deflectors to counter the energy drain, preventing any fire from breaching the shields. As the Flagship and Imperious class continue their barrage on the capital ships and primary defenses. Several platforms are destroyed or crippled along with 1 Imperious and 3 Palleons.*
Rofl, you should see what is happening in IM's.
I have no real proof but I hear threats are going around. >.<
It's the other way around here. xD
Well, be glad you still have a blue sky and by the looks of it, a decent temperature. :P
Winter is already sniffin' up our ***** here in DK. Lol
In regard to AK's powers, I agree but no one except me seems to have had a problem with this until now. Where were you months ago?
But the rest of it is (Using your own favorite term in this discussion) BS. Ten got his ships a legit way (The ones I know about anyway) and as Ten said, neither of us ever claimed our characters are uber strong (Or more powerful than existing chars like the "vets"). I have stated that my Fel char is just as OLD as Cronus, not as powerful.
And what do you mean by events? Almost everything that have ever happened in the RP can go under the term 'Event'. End the events? You just stated you wanted us to be more active. Lol - Joke's aside, it is not battles which makes you powerful in the RP. It's success.
If you insist on making assumptions based your prejudices, then I will be happy to assure you that what you refer to as a ploy for letting our force users become more powerful, is only an attempt to get intel. Nothing related to your conspiracy theories, if anything this conspiracy is aimed at something else and far more valuable then becoming a powerful force user (Something that won't help you in 7/10 battles anyway).
Last, what makes you think I want Cronus back? When I kill of a char, he'll stay dead. Unless of course I want people to think the char is dead. But in this case, he's definitely dead.
Considering how fast you go through your chars and the devaluation of them you have set in motion. That picture is such a waste of good avatar artwork...
I have already demonstrated that it is not impossible to find hideouts.
You just have to pay attention to the details ;)
*The armed men proceed unchallenged until they reach the outskirts of the village where the meeting with the Bosnian leaders are about to take place.*
Collapses is an incorrect term I think... More like beaten down like a rapid dog xD
OOC: If anything, I may have underestimated the potential for defenses. This is from the NGR Group.
"Bonadan is one of the main Banking worlds of the NGR. It is also one of the largest producers of ship and tank building in the NGR due to the number production facilities upon the planet."
OOC: It's a former (and at the time major) NGR world, and for a while one of only 3 planets at the height of the Silentium war. A well supported argument would be that the NGR constructed defenses there a long time ago. Defenses that have never been destroyed.
Plus it's a corporate system with a lot of wealthy families. I doubt it would be hard to persuade them to invest in safety when the Empire is knocking.
Also, I never stated the orbital defenses were extensive/heavy.
*Cronus watched the ship land from nearby hilltop. Behind him was the 56th Loyalist Legion well hidden from un-wanting eyes. Ready in case Kairn brought friends.
He walked forward towards Kairn and ignited his lightsaber, it was no longer red, but white, the cold color of Death.*
Depends greatly on what kind of treaty. Lol
True, but according to Adenn he did.
The deal was that we get the specified sectors and then leave you alone. So we are leaving you alone in every possible way.
The Sith have chosen our words carefully, not our fault you haven't.
Meh.. if I want modern combat I will just play Call of Duty.
But the best of luck to you anyway :P
We also have bigger numbers and our fleet outnumbers yours at least 10-1. Normally Guerrilla tactics may work, but this RP does have its limitations. I learned those limitations long ago, but did you? :P
Actually Palpatines spies/assassins managed to track down and kill several dozen Jedi (some say hundreds, but I have found no source for this). Even though most went into hiding in some of the most remote and desolate places in the galaxy. And most weren't even force users. Ours are ;)
Lol. Didn't notice xD
Are under Imperial Control.I think that's it.
OOC: We DID tell you not to attack anything. Would we EVER do that as Sith unless we had a good reason? Lol
Ori@ Everybody warned me, I even think I warned myself. So I think everyone can pad them selves on the back xD
OOC: I can't specific because I don't know what I am looking for IC :P
Nobody is attacking you xD
Let me get back to you in a minute.
Take the lead sweety ;D
The timing is just very annoying. Whats the point of trying to achieve galactic domination if it can't be done before an event screws it up.?
But fine, lets dance.
I will send some ships later when I get home.
MY good Mandalorian, you underestimate how far I am willing to go to destroy you ;)
I'm quite familiar with the layout of Umbar already. :P
But I'm sure Shadow will appreciate it. :)
Well, I think the name "Woutinator" is very catchy xD
Lies, My Chrome is just as fast/slow as IE. Lol
Btw, are people really giving me negative karma for not understanding this form of humor? It's kinda disturbing. Lol
I don't get it, but something tells me I don't want to. Lol
So.. You're biased? xD
Haha. You forget that it was MY tactics, organisation of the AoL and political scheming that won the first war. Lol
But good luck with the few ships you have right now :P
Rofl. What about MC? Playing by these rules it should be impossible to take..
Considering its the only planet that have been fortified ever since the beginning of the first Jedi-Sith war...
I don't want infinite fleets. Takes the fun out of taking risks in the RP.
Its fine, its hard to balance now. We'll see how it goes in the next few days.
But 10.000 cred is not even enough for 1 fleet. Lol
10.000 credits to start with? Wouldn't that make us go bankrupt almost immediately due to the upkeep? xD
Okay.. Now I'm even more confused. xD
What is a Mandalorian doing protecting a colony there? O.o
Btw the Dha Battlegroup was defeated if I remember correctly.
Not that I care you are blocking your own HP lane.. Lol
Two questions.. Why and what do I get instead? Pelleaons is a sad replacement for what I lose.
very imbalanced, but I think we can work with this. But before we figure out ships costs and such. I think it is hard to say how much a world "(in average) should give.
Also, we can't continue this debate in heaven, because according to your religion. Me and ten would be going to hell. Lol
But feel free to stop by and say hello ;D
And if he doesn't exits, well.. Must suck to be you. Thinking for so long in god and heaven that you will never get to terms with being worm food. Which some of us have xD
Sith Clowns, the most feared and powerful creations... Either they make you laugh to death or they are so horrifying that you kill yourself.
I myself may go for the last one.. I hate clowns..
Well, what about the battle where british Longbowmen beated an 30000+ man strong french army? I would say that sums up my steorotype view of the french military xD
Edit: Ah yes, the battle of Agincourt.
I think we have enough and that for the sake of mystery. The unknown regions should really stay Unknown.. But myabe that is just me.
I vote no/maybe. It depends on how many and what the reason is.
OOC: Nope, Jolee is.
Haha Jolee, you changed the mail. Wasn't I supposed to notice that your last name is Anderson? xD
I just think I remembered me talking to you about something like that.. But yes... = Meh.
Okay. Besides their tendency towards making fannon stuff. I don't see the big problem. I know Ten should read have read up a little more on the Witch king and stuff, but that's what we Lord of the Ring's geeks are here for. To yell at him when he is given back on of the Nine rings even though it is COMPLETELY AGAINST LORE! (Rages for a few minutes, force chokes nephews, blaming my parents for not paying my ticket to France for some LotR's fan vengeance) But... If there is something you are unhappy with. I am sure we can resolve this peacefully. Now... I have to do some of that stuff mentioned. No need to start raging on forums just yet.
That said, Good night people! :)
Edit: And forgive me is I remembered something wrong about you Ten. Its been a long day... *yawn* Oh yes... bed.. sleep.. invasion of Isengard and yell at Pain about Mountain Giants...Z zz zzzzzzzzzzzzz.
Thats how its have been for a long time now.
If you have something there to defend with, then you should be allowed to do so. But the rule about only 1 fleet still applies to the offensive.
OOC: By killing innocent people? :P Propaganda can't be ******** if it is true. xD
IC: The fleet keeps up the fire. Corvettes and startfighters shoot down most of missiles.
The 25 fast moving Scythe Class outmaneuver the slow Lictors and does extensive damage. The Lictors have trouble targeting them and soon their shields are down.
Majestic Class cruiser use their superior gun range are targeting systems to take out support ships while the 20 Imperious class keep taking on all the capital ships, the first in line fall quickly. The Endurance class carriers keep sending out startfighters to guard the capital ships against missiles.
OOC: Btw, 4 ships against 20? Really? xD
Lol. Sorry, its a bad habit of mine :S
I think I corrected that mistake several times already xD
This isn't about you Adenn, don't take this personally. I only used MC as an example. Sorry for the inconvenience mate.
Ori, I told I was working on super weapon. Public fear, fear of the Jedi, the Mandalorians, civil war and chaos. And now that I pretty much control the media, I am going to spin it into high gear soon.
And to answer your question, Excision, the first takeover happened over 200 years ago. A faded memory, to many in the galaxy, a story to scare children perhaps.
I have full control of the NSO group and will reshape it tomorrow. Then Sab3r will be given full control of this one.
Watch me! Lol
OOC: aw c'mon. Just regained control of my own media and senate and then you do this to me.. Lol I think I will kill this Cronus guy myself!
IC: I force jump down from the podium onto the plaform where I start dueling two of the "Jedi"(? Lol) and force push the others away. I quickly kill one of them and continue to dual.
"You will not succeed!"
Lol. I have given Praxis my blessing on this and I think it would add a little "flavour" to the GA. So I am okay with it.
OOC: I guess I will play the guards. :P
IC: Inside the facility, the Prison Comm Tower ask all Guards patrols to report in.
"Patrol 8 reporting in"
"Patrol 9 Reporting in"
The operator waits patiently for a response from Patrol 10. After a few minutes he is forced to do something about it.
"Patrol 14, check up on Patrol 10, they aren't reporting in. Be quick, The chief wants to make sure the facility is still secure."
"Copy that Comm Tower"
Lol. "On par"? So far you wanted to have something that will allow you to kill us off like Jews in a concentration camp.
- "And HH, these things kill Jetiise (and other Force-Users) real easy, period."
1st@ I never heard of them or thought it was another beats from one of your planets indigiounus life.
2nd@ I'll have you know that since the latest patch my BF3 is working 100% on highest graphics!
3rd@ True, FIRST TIME ENCOUNTER have often proved to almost completely disable a force user due to relinace on the force for perception. That is why I during the Cold War aquired some Ysalamiri to familierize Jedi with the sensation and to help them train in combat without the force.
4th@ Then why did you respond? xD
Meh, you're still cut off xD
No wait, that right. Lol. Pain is at Geonosis surounded by the GA. xD
OOC: Lets see how OP the defenses are. Minefields aren't going to work right due to my scans. So.. what is left.. Hm perhaps he plan to send asteroids towards the fleet? :P Planned for that too. This will be the test on what should be allowed for private bases.
As for your fleets, you can't have many left. You lost alot during the initial attacks. Pain lost most of his, Praxis lost at least half.
AK is at the meeting.. So is Kairn.. That leaves Praxis, Hunger and perhaps Pain? Can't remember if he came in person.
Maybe. But I doubt Malgus could have done better than the Jedi in this scenario.
That wasn't the point -_-
Sigh.. Some peope are just hopeless...
He acted as a Jedi, nothing less than him openly declare himself a Sith will will chan the facts about that or leave room to doubt at least.
No, by making his punishment null and ignore the judgement I give. By taking him in and once again give him a command, he will learn nothing and it is disrespectful to the Jedi Order of which he was a member.
Don't you think the NGR would be upset had I taken you in and given you a command after you betrayed them? I could just as well have bitch slapped them publicly in front of their own people and they would lose face over the fact that any punishment they give will have no meaning in the end.
"Your punishment have already been stated and that includes staying out of the core worlds. Return to your Exile Exilium until I deem fit for you to be given a chance of redemption. Any authority in the GC that interferes with that judgement will be sanctioned by the Galactic Alliance!"
Well, it didn't work last time. Lol.
Yes yes, its my fault because I hesitated to wipe them out.. Sigh.. Now stop pointing fingers at me to argue for your case! :P
"Communications are down, try for yourself"
As one of the guards starts to check his communication device, I draw the lightsaber, the one belonging to the first guard I killed, and cut of the head of the other one. I force push the other one into the wall and is then pushed over by the Pyktis myslef. As it starts to wildly rip in my shoulder pad, I quickly stab it and get on my feet.
The remaining Shadow Guard engages me and I only just manages to deflect in time. Proving to be a much more fierce opponent than the first two, we dual for several minutes. I sense time running out and jump back a few meters, then force lift the Pyktis corpse behind the Shadow Guard and trust it towards him. He turns around to stop it and I take the opportunity the stab him through the heart.
I quickly move into the room and find the self destruct bomb, I make some modifications and then activate it. Behind me I seal the room and destroys the side panel. I then move towards the command center.
OOC: Lol, my post got a little big xD
Lol, Well, if you can fool your brain about this then good for you. But every time I see that name in the future I'm going to think... "That's really a dude"
Fresh air? Not really xD
Yeah I know, I didn't put that sentance togehter right. Lol. Now that I think about it, i am notsure if anyone could follow that line of thought I had there.
Zerg Tank = Big and Strong
GC + High numbers = Big and strong
Makes sense to me, but meh.
Look at my old map, its not entirely accurate, but its place near there.
Also you haven't told me that before xD Or I haven't seen it before you deleted the pic :P
True. But Hoth is no more than a Icy rock. making it an capital makes no sense. Can't a less known planet further south be a capital?
Btw. You still haven't told me the reason for having both Bespin and Hoth as Capitals. Lol
Or we could mark the "capitals" with faction colors perhaps?
But I think an article would be a good idea, that will also give us an opportunity to explain the new System a the same time.
It was more the "gratefull to the Sith" part. Lol
If this is related to the general RP, then you should only use one char..
This is much better.
Rofl. Good community indeed. :P
The problem is when he suddenly turns the tide of the battlw all by himself, like taking otu a vital ship or asset. Then he is a problem. The questions is, can you ensure taht he will be no more than a nuisance?
The problem is.. People don't want a small simple house like you. They want private space stations the sizes of Shipyards!
Then offer a solution that allows secret bases to be discovered. This is partially because of stations like yours that I do this xD (Don't worry, you are not the only one)
He means well. ;D
Glad I am not participating in the diplomacy though..
*Silentium fleets from all over the galaxy comes out of hyperspace and attacks the forces gathered there.
Thousands of Sphere ships and many more suppprt ships decend upon the Citadel and the forces there while millions of drones are launched*
OOC: Its your turn... (_ _ ) Zzz
I have been RP'ing while doing tests. C'mon mate!
*Bestine is seized by the Silentium and the fleet moves on to Onderon.*
*The Silentium fleet enters range and opens fire at the defenses* (I presume it have some? Lol )
*Silentium forces now move into range while the defenses are busy wityh the drones and open fire onthe defenders.
More drones are launched to draw fire and make suicide runs*
Do you have a program for re-hab? :D I could really use this off my addiction list xD
Well, Alderaan is pretty obvious and the rest you can look up on Wookiepedia.
They are destroyed planets.
Tron Legacy soundtrack? xD
Indeed. It will fun... As in F-U-N people!
I bet he is an expert at force persuation xD
I know the Science team thing is a bit of an strecth, but it is better than I have to deal with someone coming along, taking the ship and saying to me "Look, I got one of their ships, now I can reprogram them all to serve me and now you need to tell me everything! Muaha".
I just needed the ship to blow up so I wouldn't have to deal with that. Lol
Try and think... What would a Jedi do? - This is a Sith joke. Guess the answer and we will continue. Lol
If that were the case, then you should have said in the previous battle that you attached one.
I already gave you guys another chance after you failed, don't push it jester.
I don't think Mount Doom is powerful enough...
You are finnaly starting to sound like a Sith lord Lol
Had my doubts you know xD
SHH! I know its not Origin... I am trying to discredit it! xD You ruined my attempt of making even more people hate Origin :P
As for competition...
1) When they give me my money for BF2142 Nothern Strike back and admit that I actually own the game that stands on my sjelv FFS! Then I will consider it..
2) When Steam rivals EA in greed and presuming my first condition is furfilled.. Then I can agree to it.
EA is a bunch of greedy morons that ruin games by pushing deadlines and making budgets costs they have no reason to make considering their huge income.
They ruined many things about Dragon Age 2, Battlefield 3, SWTOR, Crysis 2 and others just because they wanted the games out as fast as possible.
Lol. This reminds me, did I ever go get the holocrons back? I hid them after the Sith attacked xD
I didn't mean those fangs, poor choice of words xD But yes, I believe you are correct :P
It represents loyalty to the Republic (The symbol) and that the leadership of the Jedi order is represented by a council. (The fangs that go out from the center to the small circles.)
Hmmm. Not really an expert on that stuff. I presume you have looked in the troubleshooting guide? (If thats what it is called, haven't played in a while.) The file should come with the download, otherwise, maybe you should try a reinstall and follow the instructions closely. During the installation, there also is the part where you cam choose where to istall it, make sure its the right path. If I remember correctly, it should go something like C/program files/.../.../ republicatwar/data -> sometimes the "data" is missing in the line. Just add it in that case.
But please doublecheck what I've said in the documents that come with the download, it should all be there. I haven't played it since summer, so my facts may be wrong. In any case, let me know if you still have problems, the people on the Republic at War group should be able to help you out with this.
Nope. Lol. Waaay to geeky for me.
Well, if he gave us free will to make our own choices. Then why did he send all those prohpets or w/e to tell us how we should live our life? Makes no sense. "hey! heres free will! Now do as I say!"
IMO, the best society would be one without religion. Or one with only 1 religion. (Which is never going to happen Lol)
Uhm. You mad? If they want Spaarti Clones, the let them. No better than droids. As for their extremmly fast production rate, that is something for the GM's to decide.
This sounds Russian..Lol
Why all the hostility? xD People ´shouldn't be have to be in the RP to post their fleets Imo. :P
Dantooine, Tatooine, Honoghr, Manaan and Kinyen is under GA control.
As for a position, give me one that you think I deserve ;)
Average Mando Vs Average Jedi?
Thought so, I'm generally neutral in this but I have my own reasons for siding with him ;)
Proof that DeadRanger commanded the Chiss:
Btw. What happend with the other Chiss group?
Europe was on the way to recovery... But then Italy happend. >_>
Still. I could also just go make another New Republic group.. xD or a New Jedi Order group - Or The New Mandalorians group
The fact is that it seems like a lot of new groups are popping up from entirely new members.
At least he gave me my shuttle back... Quite exspensive :P
"I'm goin to rock you home!"
Who's sober?!. Mot me, all though gut Iøm not Mandalorian..
Ten: We had a pre'excisting "conflict" (for the lack of a better word Lol) with the Republic on how they chose to do things.
No problem, just aiding you in the rebuilding ;)
This article is from a private group Lol
To bad the Jedi Master died too, loved that guy. He got skillz..
That would be expensive, but I have a bigger chance of missing it if they attack friday.. I have needs...
Lol, maybe you should edit that a bit...
"Biggest moron" Check mate!
What do I win? ;D
Hammerhead Cruisers. Lol.
Considering the 1000 + years of tech difference, you could have hundreds of them and you would still not be a match for a modern cruiser. :P
Btw. "Jedi Skull" and "Fallen Jedi", don't tell me you have a grudge against us! XD
I have already forgotten why we are discussing the Mandalorian wars.. Lol.
I find it strange that you are considering the only two conclusions to the war to be the best possible ones. There are other possible conclusions to this war war. The conclusion the Jedi Council at that time was afraid of was that, it would end the same way as the previous war. The Jedi Order goes to war, and a group of Jedi becomes corrupted (inkluding Exar Kun as I have mentioned 2-3 times now..) and even more people dies in another conflict. The Jedi Order would have entered eventually, they would never have allowed the Republic to fall. I think that; if the Mandalorians reached a certain point the Jedi Order would have stepped in anyway, so maybe discussing this topic and guessing what MIGHT have happend, is actually a little pointless. LOL
Revan might have fallen anyway, they might still have been chosen as generals and chased the Mandalorians into deep space, where they ran into the Dark Lord of the Sith Empire. Or somebody else had fallen, maybe someone much more powerful. What we are discussing now is becoming pure guesswork so, I'm gonna draw the line here.
Seems like all that is left is our Kings, so draw.. ;)
Your arguments are beginning to become flawed. ;D
I already answered above, but I'll try again. As I said above, they were concerned that another Jedi would fall to the dark side and create havoc and destruction. Like it happend with Exar Kun. They were uncertain if they would be able to stop a new Sith from creating yet another war right after the Manadlorian wars. As it was proven with Revan and Malak. They failed to do so when they retuned as Sith.
They did care for the Republic, for they believed that entering the war was not the way to do it. Had the Republic not played right into the hands of the Mandalorians, they would not have needed the help of the Jedi to win the war. The Republic was losing the war because they in their arrogance believed that the Mandalorians did not have the strenght to defeat them.
Had Revan and Malak not joined the war and fallen to the Dark side, the Republic would have had more time to recover before the return of the Sith Empire from the unknown regions and many lives could have been saved. Fact.
At some point the Mandalorians would have extended themselves and their own defeces would have weakened. Which would have allowed the Republic to gain ground. - A RL example of this could be Germany during WW II, their army had no match, but as soon as they started to extend themselves, they started to lose the war.- Although RL have nothing to do with SW, I just wanted to present an argument for that it is not certain that the Republic would have lost.
Check Mate.. Again.. Lol
Btw. If we took this enitre discussion and combined our opinins it would make an awesome article ^^
Number 2. It's simple and cool :)
Once you reach tech 4 and have a´good income, the CIS aren't that hard to beat, you just have to use the right tactics. For an example; If you pitch two Venators against two Providences, you use the bombers to take out their shields and then fokus on one at a time. You might loose one Venator but I would say that one Venator for two providences are a good trade.
It's the same on the ground, use the right tactics and they CIS won't be a problem. :P
They say it should be more balanced in v. 1.2, so I guess my article won't be needed anymore :( Onless one is totally hopeless. Lol
As far as you know.. And it seems like you overestimate your succes.
C'mon people! YOU CAN DANCE. :D
I found it, so I can't take credit :P
I think I read somewhere that the Jedi actually have a department/task force that specialises in hunting Sith (Doen't have to mean kill). But I'm not sure. Proberly only in wars against Sith though.
Yeah, keep telling yourself that... xD
You are loosing members!!! NUFF SAID! x2 :P
One of my all-time favorite ships! :D
Yes, this one :)
I hate crabs....
Haha, Good one! xD
Well, in the description it says "attempts". I think he lost :P
There are only infantry, just take a single squad of tanks and roll'em over xD
Wow, so detailed! (Eyes starts to grow into the screen) xD
Nice Vid. Looking forward to next update!
I think it's a blue lightsaber though.. Why would there only be one green lightsaber?
