Your opinion is not necessarily mine; Your opinion is not fact; Your opinion is not absolute. Your opinion is a perspective.
Thought that was to big a spellphayl not to leave noted xD
Depends on who you ask xD
Haha, I see I wasn't the only one to think of hours BL sessions xD
Key word is 'seems'. In my social circle, the parts consisting of people who also are active on the internet, I know about 15 people including myself who are atheists. Out of all those, I am the only one known to debate religion from time to time. In fact most want nothing to do with this debate and others don't really care. That's 1 out of 15 in my case.
Now if we speak politics, some of those friends would quickly end up in the box where you locate those "extreme fundamentalists" xD
So from my perspective, generalizations like these seem not only like a weak argument, but also far fetched. Not that I would claim my case is the same as all.
As does the native Americans and France. :p
Thank you! ;D
Keep telling yourself that :P
Well, their tanks do have 9 reverse gears. :P
At least that is what my history teacher used to tell me.
I presume you are talking about fx this; "Let the Mandalorians conquer you!" :P
Nobody cares to change it, that is why xD
This comment has been posted in a private group.
Wow. Old comment :P
Anyway, I was told to make something quick. Plus, I was lazy. ;)
- No Malachor on the map.
- Chisscakes you nub
Otherwise, correct :P
Edit: We need to change the capital of Shadda-Bi-Boran. That planet is technically destroyed. may I suggest Farstine? Not very known, but it seems quite interesting.:)
Hey, I am only responsible for one of them!
*The system of Agamar agrees to allowing the meeting to take place in their sector and asks if any of the representatives wish for any special arrangements to be made in regard to security.
Their only demand being that the warships hold a certain distance from their own defense perimeter. Although the Starfighters are allowed to escort the transports to and from the surface.*
Dude, these are great! :P
*With Thain dead and the systems divided, inter-systems trade and negotiations break down, destabilizing governments. Allowing several resistance groups to form and flourish, with no shortage of recruits.*
OOC: I'll end it then. Not how I wanted to end this, but I really can't be bothered to argue about it.
Also the Rangers survived? Really, I couldn't have just this one thing?
*Thain heard the reports that the Mandalorians had stopped their advance. He sighed, he had no intention of waiting. He pulled out the object and activated it. It was a lightsaber, shining bright with a white beam.
He aimed it towards his chest and mumbles to himself; "Honor huh. I'll show them true honor.". He then thrust it through his heart.*
OOC: You would have had me at the city power generators if only you had tried to destroy them and not use it for distraction. The trap was always at the Shield generator itself.
*A locally rigged force field appears in front of the rangers going to plant charges and only a second later the team is engulfed in a large explosion. Troops in hiding come out and surround the area. Several dozen Battledroids engage the other team, firing their slug-throwers to destroy cover, with other soldiers setting up MG emplacements, to suppress the enemy and prevent escape.
Thain arrived at the Plaza, where he stood silent listening to the now more and more silent city. All over the city troops were in full retreat, regrouping around the planetary shield generator and others were surrendering.
He took off his Combat armor and gear, then replacing it with a long formal Red coat, with an old royal insignia on the back. As he finally thought himself ready, an object inside his coat caused him to remember something. Something he had long put past him and almost forgotten. He smiled and mumbled to himself; "All that ends well..."
All that was left for Thain to do, was wait for the Mandalorians*
OOC: Sigh. Whatever.
*Somehow having forced themselves through the defensive line and the physical barriers, the infantry scatter throughout the buildings on both sides of the road. The tanks are outflanked and destroyed along with the AT-AE's.
As AA and Arbelast support fails to stop the enemy aerial vehicles, they get decimated and are in full retreat.
General-Secretary Thain left the combat room without saying anything and went to his personal quarters where he picked up an envelope entitled to "Commodore Malan Drayson". He gave it to a trusted Carrier, picked a few things from his desk-drawer and left for the Council Plaza in the middle of the city.*
*The infantry was well dug in and took less losses than expected and the anti-air covered as well. The Heavy TB-4 tanks retaliate, firing missiles and their heavy lasors cannons, targeting the Canderous tanks.
AT'AEs fire their mortars and heavy repeaters, targeting any infantry trying to encroach on the line.
As the Howlers and gunships approach, anti-air infantry from the rooftops behind the main line targets them from afar, with FAAV's and Arbelasts firing missiles from below. Making sure any attempt to make a run at the line meets a deadly end.
The Mandalorian convoys now hear a loud strange sound, as small concealed seismic charges inside the tall buildings went off next to the convoy. 4 Buildings on each side now fall towards the Highway, falling on top of the convoy.
At the rear of the convoy, infantry seemingly appear out of nowhere as they come up from the sewer and maintenance tunnels and engage any forces they find, also bringing Anti-Air and Anti-Tank weapon squads with them
At the shield generator itself, it indeed do seem under-protected.*
*The defensive line keep their heads down during the bombardment. Waiting for the enemy to get into range.*
OOC: Dunno what else to say. Lol
OOC: Yay for misunderstandings! :P
The Speeders take some losses, many crashing into the sides on the highway and other speeders, however the ignored turrets which have been firing at the Naast droids for quite a while do their jobs well and provide distraction and confusion.
AT-AE's now move out of range from the Mandalorian infantry and tanks as they move behind the Main defensive line.
The Akaane's beam hit the planetary shield and troops rush to the generators from all directions and the guards inside lock down the facility. Blast doors close around the generators.*
*Despite heavy fire and engagements in 3 separate fronts, 4 including the air and artillery. The Ruusan forces starts to withdraw, popping smoke grenades and providing cover fire for those that need it.
The artillery is destroyed despite their advantages, seemingly outmatched in every way.
On the Highways, speeders turn around and engage the Naast Droids. As the remaining AT-AE's start their retreat to the main line, they also fire mortar rounds against the Mandalorian Infantry and convoy in order to keep them suppressed.
The Crossfires take some losses, do what they came to do and then withdraw with the rest
The rangers find the power generators lightly guarded.*
*The Sledge hammers find the Ruusan artillery well covered by the tall buildings surrounding the Highway. A few are hit by the ones with a more direct line of sight, but even more fire back and retaliate.
The chaffs deployed by the Candorous tanks are largely ineffective and the dumb-fired rockets hit their targets, with some still missing though, as they weren't guided.
With most of the enemy vehicles either destroyed or scattering, Crossfires moves in an attacks the infantry line from above, some of them attempting to distract enemy remaining AA out in the open first.
The Naast Droids were fast and manages to slow down and confuse the AT-AE's. However the Speeders were even faster, deploying Turrets along the way to help deal with the droids.
From the sidestreets, Battledroids engage the Mandalorian infantry, supported by Ruusan militia, the engagement seems favorable as the Mandalorian have just diverted squads away.
The Countermeasures save them from the missiles fired, but not much else as the Crossfires and Twin-laser cannons of the FAAV traps them. However, the Mandalorian Rangers are not spotted.*
OOC: Apologies for the delay. RL is determined to prevent me from RP'ing :P
OOC: Welp... :/
*The meeting is concluded, following the parties agreeing to join the Federation*
OOC: Just a few notes: Any half decent military will ALWAYS been going for precision shots in order to avoid collateral damage, but it still happens.
Also, Non-Lethal ordnance? You need to travel further into the wild west with that one.
"Incoming!" A Soldier shouts as he moves behind a building wall. Shortly after all forces are ordered to fall back if they meet heavy opposition near the edges of the city.
As the Mandalorians move further up the main roads, MAC shells now hit the Shev'lae and Sundari. Spotters on some of the higher buildings assisting them.
As the Mandalorians also start to approach the main defense perimiter. They face a smaller counter-attack. Arbalests are dumb-firing rockets against the Canderous tanks, supported by AT-AE's and quite a few Recon speeders.
As the enemy Howlers and Thanes are spotted, they are allowed to enter further into the city among the taller buildings where there is less room to maneuver. Half buried in rubble to mask it, a FAAV opens fire on the incoming Howlers and Thanes. From above now attacks a squad of Crossfires.*
*Inside the city, most civilians have already been relocated to emergency shelters.
On the outskirts of the city, the Ruusan Militia is ready. On all the major roads into the city, fortifications are placed, protected by infantry in front, then tanks and further down the road, closely guarded artillery. Any minor roads into the city were made inhospitable to anything but infantry.
General-Secretary Thain was overseeing the defenses personally.*
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*
