Your opinion is not necessarily mine; Your opinion is not fact; Your opinion is not absolute. Your opinion is a perspective.
The Commandos quickly realize their weapons are ineffective and switch to Ion weapons in an attempt to weaken the shields.
As this occurs Akarab seizes upon the Commandos initiative, with a light force push temporarily disrupting the flamethrowers after which he leaps over and past one of them, but when directly above he strikes towards the top part of the droid to see if it will penetrate the weakened.
Circissa follows suit, but with a much stronger force push towards the other droid, attempting to push it away and separate the droids from each other, followed by an attempt to crush the droid from the inside out using the force.
The rest of the Commandos form up behind the Jedi, where the Jedi can deflect the blaster fire while the Commandos open fire. One of them throws a thermal detonator.
Circissa begins to move slowly towards the frozen soldiers, with the intent of trying to free them. As soon as the grenade detonates she moves it and uses the force to cracking the icy shell.
A disturbing window into Milos' psyche is was it is. Its a subconscious thing.
As they approach the base, the Commandos spread out, three goes left and three goes right while Akarab and Circissa stay in the center as they are about to enter the camp.
The MAAT makes a pass over the crater and the Commandos jump off, using thruster packs to control and slow down their decent. Akarab and Circissa follows without any, something which would tend to surprise most soldiers. But the Commandos are used to working with Jedi on a regular basis, so nothing really surprised them anymore.
Despite having jumped last, Akarab and Circissa lands first, followed the Commandos lightly touching down. Circissa turns to her Master.
"We may be guests on this world and will respect that, but we do not know the intentions of the others who are here whether they were invited or not. Perhaps we should head into the temple before they arrive and avoid a confrontation at least until we know the situation inside."
Akarab stands still for a moment before he speaks. "It won't be long before I have nothing more to teach you young one. Today we follow your instincts and not mine. Lead the way Circissa." he says, leaving Circissa slightly surprised. She knew she was further along in her training than most of her age, but somehow her Masters words still came as a surprise.
"Yes Master." she replies and makes a light bow towards Akarab, then she signals the Commandos and the group moves into the cavern towards the base camp.
I hadn't heard Bakura had seceded with the Federation. >_>
Otherwise, great work. Its back to being perfect again, or well almost^ ;)
The location is just part of it.
It makes no sense as capital as besides been cluttered by mining operations, there is really nothing there. Even the Wookiepedia article says it is a worthless planet. Lol
As for alternatives, have you guys even looked up the other planets on the actual map?
Or Skye, being the planet with most background info.
Jakku doesn't make any sense as Sector Capital. There are other better options. Plus it isn't stated anywhere that Jakku is even in that sector.
As Akarab and Circissa enter a MAAT along with the Commando team, they sense the presence of the other force users. Akarab finds the Sith in particular a disturbing development.
"Aren't you glad we brought a Commando team?" He asks his padawan and smiles. "It would seem so Master." she responds. Akarab alerts the Commando team to the arrivals, but orders them to only engage if fired upon. "We are guests on the this world." he says.
As the shuttle leaves the transport mid air and heads for a landing site, they see the fighting on the ground. "Spin op the CBP's and make a pass." Akarab says to the pilot.
The gunners in both turrets open fire on the droids as the team is preparing to jump off.
OOC: I figured you would just send the data. You know, do things the easy way :P
OOC: Lol. I thought you were setting me up for ending the call, your last comment seemed Final. My bad. xD
Slightly disappointed in Shiva's impatience, he repeats himself. "As I said, I will present your findings to the Council." Once again Larik seem to be talking to someone in the background. He continues;
"It is not me, that you need to convince. I am sure the Council, or at the very least some of our order will find your findings most important and act on it. But until then it is not for me to decide."
The Mon Calamari Jedi Master Akarab, and his Padawan Circissa are standing silently on the bridge of the Federation transport that has just entered the Kinyen solar system. Circissa breaks the silence.
"Master, are we expecting trouble?" She asks, referring to them having brought a Federation Commando team with them, currently waiting below decks.
"I expect the unexpected." he cryptically responds. Circissa have lately wondered if all padawans have masters that insist on making vague responded and cryptic answers. It must either be an internal practical joke between all the Jedi Masters, which you are only let in on once one becomes a Master oneself, or it is a part of the training as a Jedi. Knowing her Master though, it was probably both.
Master Akarab looks at her almost if as he had read her mind and says; "The Commandos are here to secure the landing zone and immediate area. We are to proceed alone into the Archaeological site. If a situation arises, they will be our backup." he ends, content with not going into further detail about the mission.
The pilot informs them they are about to enter the atmosphere.
"If that is your wish Shiva, I shall present your findings to the council.
May the force be with you." he ends.
"Only that a Jedi boarded the ship, only to never return. The Council might know more than I, but they have been in seclusion for the last few days meditating, seeking guidance from the Force." He pauses as someone talks to him in the background, but it isn't loud enough for Shiva to hear.
"I could ask for either a Jedi Master or one of the Council members to speak with you, but they may not be willing. You did after all break away from our Order, which is not typically allowed, and for good reasons. Even communicating with you could be seen as a concession from their side.
Is there anything in particular you wish to talk to, or do you have any other questions? I will do my best to answer them."
A moment passes before she relieves a response.
"This is Larik, present, Jedi Knight" he jokes. "We had wondered when you might contact us. Did you find our intelligence on the ship interesting? Must have been since you now choose to make contact." he says.
Yes you did.
You and Joe ganged up on me over skype last we talked. Ranting about ALLLLL the issues you had with it. xD
"There is nothing further for either party to discuss. Anything else we must entrust the force to guide us in. Yet I will give you a final piece of guidance.
We sensed through the force that you had honest intentions coming here, but the force is rarely as clear in its intent as it was today." She says being almost stereotypical unclear as a Jedi.
She stands up and says; "May the force be with you." before she turns to one of the engineers which have approached her with a report on the confiscated items. Serena can hear that he greets the Jedi as Grand Master Ranach and then they proceed into the temple.
Above the grounds, two law enforcement ships are preparing to escort Serena and her ships outside Federation space.
Tiebreakers, pff. threats is better.
Joe, vote in favor or face my wrath for forcing me to dismantle half the Federation military because you wanna be GM.
And if you do not fear my wrath... Well, the least you could do is be a patriot and do whats best for the Federation. Vote in favor, or don't become GM ;D
The Jedi nods in appreciation of the gratitude.
"I was not at Rhen Var, but the Jedi Council do not make use of this kind of ability without good reason." She warns as she gazes towards Serena's ship. The engineers are just now leaving.
The Jedi hands over the storage device to Serena. "These records pertain to a man who came to warn the Jedi of an attack. The circumstances of his punishment is detailed within. As for his current whereabouts, Jedi intelligence lost track of him years ago, but what they did have we have chosen to share with you."
She pauses again.
"Is he family?" The Jedi asks, having guessed who Serena seeks based the information she has found.
I can't really tell whether this is a joke or not.
I'm fine with it. Solves the issues I have with the current one. Hence why I didn't replay to the revised fleet system. I have nothing to say really.
The new system gives me more flexible control of the military.
"We will not part with it, no." She responds to the first question.
As for the second one the Jedi wonders what use it would be for Serena, as while she may be given the information. Anything other than who those people were, it would not include any information beyond that
"Wait here, while I go to the libraries."
Half an hour passes before she returns with a small data storage device.
"Before we proceed" she begins. "I must ask you, am I right in presuming you were at one point known as Darth Eredis, an assassin of the Sith Order?"
"I will not grant you access to our libraries, but perhaps I can help you with some of your requests.
How the severance between a force user and the force is done, is not knowledge we would part with. As for the effects
on the mind and body, that is difficult to answer and depends on the person. For most however, it is merely a matter how whether you can live with being severed from the force, or not. Can it be reversed? Yes. But it has only ever been done so by the Jedi Council. Another piece of knowledge, which we will not part with.
As for the records of Rhen var, I am not entirely sure such records exist. You would need to be more specific."
"What answers can we give you, that the force cannot?"
Before saying more she pauses, shortly contemplating.
"But you didn't come here for lessons, so tell me what you seek and I'll perhaps I can help you better."
"A group of engineers will remove crystals, and some other crucial components the stealth drive will need in order to function. Unless you are hiding anything else illegal, that is the only thing that would need replacing if you leave."
As the Jedi said it, a small transport shuttle lands next to it and begins. She is silent for a moment while watching the engineers disembark and then refocus her attention to Serena.
"You come seeking answers to questions you have. They must be important for you to risk coming to a Jedi temple. There are those who would have done this differently." She says, being unclear about whether she speaks of the Jedi, Sith or otherwise.
"I am ready now. But you were not ready until you sat down." She responds.
She opens her eyes and looks at Serena.
"Before we begin, at the.. request.. of Military command, I must ask you to send a message to your cloaked ship and have it prepared to be boarded. Civilian use of stealth technology is prohibited in Federation space. In case you see no reason to oblige, you should know that had the Jedi Council not sensed you on the way to Eriadu to meet us, your ship would have been destroyed the moment it entered the system.
It would be unwise to test the Jedi Councils willingness to persist in not doing so, considering your origins."
The woman remains silent and is seemingly unmoved by the presence of Serena.
Perhaps to the surprise of Serena, she finds no Jedi nor guards preventing her from reaching the temple. As she moves up the stairs towards the main gate a lone woman sitting and meditating in front of the gates, which are closed. She doesn't have any weapons either.
