Following the broadcast, several explosions were triggered across the galaxy in Imperial, Enclave, Cartel, Tionese and Republic space. No important infrastructure was damaged, only low security civilian targets were hit leading to a substantial amount of injured and casualties.

Intelligence agencies were able to trace the broadcast's source of origin to Felucia, in Tion Hegemony territory.

As the Republic begins to investigate the various bomb sites locally and with the Holonet buzzing with rumors and conspiracies already, Republic officials inform that the Republic is already reaching out to other nations and sovereignty's in order to learn more. Republic ambassador Trailk have already begun pressing the Tion authorities to act.

Meanwhile, Captain Dartanial Verlern is woken up in his cabin by someone knocking hard on his door.

"Apologies sir, there is an incoming holotransmission from the SC." someone says outside.

"Inform the SC I will be there momentarily." Dartanial says begrudgingly. So much for a good nights sleep he thought to himself as he gets dressed.

Dartanial rushes to the bridge of the Republic SpecForce vessel, a ship more classified than the Chancellors holonet history. He enters the bridge and sees a holoprojection of the Supreme Commander.

"Sir". He says and salutes. "Forgive me sir, but I thought we were still operating radio silent during transpo."

Drayson salutues the Captain back. "You still are, however I need you to change course for Tion space. There has been a series of bombings which have been traced to the Felucia system. I am transmitting coordinates now along with briefing materials, we will further update you as we get m ore information. However when you enter Tion space, you're on your own until we are sure the Tion authorities intend to cooperate."

"My men and I are ready sir. We'll change course immediately." the Captain replies.

"Good. May the force be with you Captain." Drayson says before ending the transmission.

Lok was tired of the constant training, nothing of importance had been going on in the galaxy to warrant his attention. Then the attack happened, and he had been placed in charge of the investigation by the Empress. He contacted Arkanus and headed to the Reaper to meet with her. He was accompanied by DI, as well as Raime and Velstadt.

They met up on the bridge of the destroyer.

"Welcome back my lord, it has been a long time. I Hope you've been keeping well."

Lok almost laughed at the question. It felt incredibly mundane for one such as him, but he knew Arcanus long enough to know that she was sincere about it, as well as the fact that she did not expect an answer to that question.

"Yes indeed it has, Arkanus, I'm sure you are fully briefed on the current situation. Our best lead for the bombings lies in Felucia. The Empress is already contacting the Tion Hegemony, trying to get their support."

Lok pondered for a moment.

"This is a very delicate situation. Not only will we be traveling to hegemony space, but since the bombings were all across the galaxy, there is no doubt that other factions will be investigating there. I'm sure the Empress is not interesting in starting any wars, so make sure you tread carefully."

"Understood my lord, I'll make ready for our departure immediately."

Soon the Reaper entered hyperspace, headed for Felucia.

The Ancient and Honourable Tion Hegemony is undergoing a heated debate on how to react to the crisis in the Rhen Var sector as only the Cronese Mandate and Allied Tion were directly affected, the Rhen Var have allowed these two lordships to assume joint operations over the crisis in Felucia under the guiding hand of Rhen Var. There have been no official statements from Oberon I Tavik, the Tionese king.

Tionese involvement is to be expected but will likely be bogged down due to internal issues.
_________

The Galactic Empire has dispatched the Judicator, an Imperial Star Destroyer. Sending a request to the Tionese government to enter their territory legally to deal with the threat of the deranged doctor.

Meanwhile on Felucia, the insane ex-Republic doctor is set to detonate another series of bombs if his perceived demands are not met. Time is running out.

The SpecForce vessel drops out of hyperspace near Feluca and run passive scans for traffic in the area, while attempting to pinpoint a more precise location of the broadcast.

In the shuttlebay, Captain Velern preps a small team. They equip themselves in all black gear and with various weaponry, unsure of exactly what they'll face.

"Sir, any futher word from command?" One of them asks.

"None." The Captain responds, "but we'll manage."

The Reaper drops out of hyperspace near Felucia. It scans the space around the planet first for any ships and picks up the SpecForce Vessel.

"Do you think we should make contact my lord?"

"No, let's stay out of their way, so long as they stay out of ours. For now just get the most accurate location possible, and prep a squad to accompany us."

Lok and his companions made their way to the Dark Lady along with a group of stormmarines and commando droids, while Arkanus worked to get an accurate location to start their search.

The Republic special forces pin-point the precise location sooner than the Enclave, having arrived earlier at the scene. It directs them to a Clone Wars-era compound on Felucia's southern-most continent, more precise data on the facility and the region is not possible due to the aftermath of Order 66.

Captain Verlern is informed of the Enclave star destroyer coming out of hyperspace.

"We have been scanned sir." the pilot further informs.

"Hmm. I think we are foregoing the shuttle, exposure is to high. Move behind the nearest asteroid or moon and activate stealth systems, then set a course. Lets see if we cant find a clearing near the compound. If not, we'll do a hard drop." He orders the pilot.

"Do you think they'll realize the nature of this vessel?" one of the Commandos ask.

"They should have no reason to." he responds. "Pilot, whats our status?"

"We have just moved behind Felucias second moon. Activating stealth systems." the captain is informed over the comm.

The lighting inside the ships turns red to alert all crew that the ship is now running in stealth mode. The ship then makes way towards the compound on the planet looking for a suitable place the land.

The thick Felucian flora forced the Republic SpecForces to land their ship in quite some distance away from the compound in a very shallow lake, boots on the ground the water comes up to the heel. The compound was several kilometres away.

During their flight over of the facility belonging to the mad doctor, the Republic forces were able to detect several large anti-air and anti-ground turbolaser emplacements even towering walls crumbling due to a lack of maintenance. There were several complexes, several Armoured Assault Tanks in various states of decay and who knows what else hidden away in the flora. So far, everything but the anti-air appeared to be depowered.

Once in atmosphere and approaching the compound. The much smaller onboard shuttle is sent empty to a location closer, and opposite or their primary landing site, trying to stay just outside the range of the AA. As it lands, the SpecForce vessel have almost reached the clearing.

"Alright, take us down." The captain says.

The ship lands and two teams leave the vessel. The first team secure the area while the second, along with Captain Velern begins to make their way to the compound in at a rapid pace.

As the first team secures the area, they begin to set a perimeter. They are all to aware that the Felucia jungle can be a dangerous place.

The team moves at a slow pace, partially due to their own caution and partially due to the Felucian surface slowing them down. The forward team notes signs of intelligent life, totems and painted stockades. Clearly not CIS in origin.

Back at the shuttle the perimeter team hears heavy stomping approaching at a slow pace.

Captain Velerns team continue to make their way towards the compound, hoping to find some kind of highground near it.

"We may have natives about one of the commandos comment."

"Maybe." the Velern responds. "Until we know more, check your fire."

_________

At the ship, the second team, continue their preparations.

Despite the heavy stomping, no movement happens near the shuttle.

As the commandos creep silently through the underbrush, the Felucian natives show up on their infrared sights. There were a few patrols up ahead, scouring the jungle in pairs. Scouting drones detect there's also a settlement nearby with an unknown amount of Felucians, it is directly on the path towards the CIS compound.
_________

Coming within the view of the perimeter team is a bull Rancor leading a pack of Felucian rancors. Based on their current path, they are headed for the ship.

"We have no authority to be here. No contact unless absolutely necessary." the Captain says quietly, as they move further in. They locate the closest patrol moving in the direction of the compound and move in their footstep, albeit at a distance. Considering the remoteness and apparent vigilance of natives, its not unreasonable to think that there may be traps or other security measures hidden in the brushes to alert of intruders or wildlife. So they stick to the patrols paths in the hopes of getting past the village unseen.

Back at the perimeter the squad have been discussing what to do, they don't want to create a lot of noise when dealing with the rancors. They settle on one of them leading them away for the moment.

Of of the Cammandos fursthest away from the ship. Climbs the nearest tree and aims his blaster at the Bull, figuring the others are mostly likely to follow him. He fires a single shot at distance, at the rancors chect area and waits to see how it responds.

The commandos stalk the patrols, they notice as the spear and bow-armed Felucians stop several times and crouch over the ground or observe the foliage for several minutes before moving on. Their path is seemingly erratic and they are moving away from the village.

The bull Rancor lets out a mighty roar and begins to stomp towards whatever fired upon him, flanked by two other rancors. The pack continue behind them.

For some reason the scanning took an incredibly long time, but finally they were able to obtain results. they had narrowed down the location to the same compound that the republic team had located.

Soon the Dark lady engaged its stealth systems and made it's way towards the planet. Due to the heavy forests they looked for a nearby clearing they could use.

The moment the patrol begin to move away from the village, the squad of Commandos break their stalk and begins to move away, they look for another patrol to stalk, preferably one that leads them further towards the compound.

Near the ship, the shooter fire several more shots, both at the bull, and then a few more at the other rancors not following. After that he moves to a tree further back.

The nearest two clearings to the compound the Dark Lady could settle on were already occupied by the Republic forces they saw earlier, the Enclave team could see very much the same information the Republic plus they note a large herd of Rancor rampaging near one of the Republic vessels.

During their flight over of the facility belonging to the mad doctor, the Republic forces were able to detect several large anti-air and anti-ground turbolaser emplacements even towering walls crumbling due to a lack of maintenance. There were several complexes, several Armoured Assault Tanks in various states of decay and who knows what else hidden away in the flora. So far, everything but the anti-air appeared to be depowered.

The Enclave can settle next to one of the Republic landing spots, further away or possibly pursue another option altogether.
_________

Unfortunately for the SpecForce team prowling towards the compound, they are ironically discovered by another patrol. One spear is thrown to alert the team, upon turning to face the Felucians they note more spears and arrows pointed at them as several others scurry to surround.

Back at the vessel, the bull Rancor howled and stopped moving for a moment with its head low. The others on its flank followed suit.

"Stay calm." The Captain ordered. Following their training they made sure to have their backs to the nearest tree. They kept their weapons trained on the natives.

"Lets see what they do, if their intent is hostile. We'll shroud." He further tells his men. At the same time he keeps the comm line open so the team back at the ship can listen in. As they do, one of them moves into the ship with haste and orders one of the weapons officers to prepare a concussion missile.

Seeing as it seems to work, the others continue to lead the rancors away.

The SpecForce troopers cornered by the jungle Felucians are treated to a guttural, barking-like sound. At this point the Republic forces are entirely surrounded by a group of eight hunters but infra-red reveals about six more camouflaged warriors.
_________

Though getting fired upon by a blaster is definitely painful and could eventually result in the death of even the mighty bull rancor, the soldier had failed to notice the tell-tale sign of a charge. During such a manoeuvrer the otherwise large, lumbering beasts temporarily become shockingly fast.

The Republic trooper is trampled and killed.

The peculiar language the Felucians speak continues for a few seconds before the speaker finally stops, noting that the foreign soldiers are not reciprocating communications. The spear-armed warriors begin to poke and stab in the air menacingly, beckoning the SpecForces to move.

From what they know, the troopers are directed to leave the area going towards the Clone Wars compound and away from the Felucian village.

After the rancors cease their stampede they reform their pack and resume on their path. They are getting closer and closer to the Republic's ship (ship).

Without lowering their guard, Captain Velern and his compatriots are content with being herded towards their goal. For now.

After the death of their fellow Commando, the rest of the perimeter team take it up a notch. While the Rancor pack still get their bearings, two troopers from the ships crew come out, each with a heavy repeater blaster and mounts them both of tripods. Next to them, Commando's get on the ground with sniper rifles. They open fire, targeting the eyes. The heavy repeaters fire a hail of blaster fire at the legs of the Rancors, focusing on bringing them down one by one.

Once the commandos are driven from the territories that belong to the jungle Felucians they are left to their own devices, the Felucians watch as the Republic SpecForces go on their way from a distance.

If they continue on their way towards the compound without heading back to the jungle Felucians they inevitably stumble across rusted and nature-enshrouded husks of Confederacy war machines; droids, tanks and fortifications. Ancient blasters pointed menacingly at them, but deactivated and those were just the ones they could see never mind what else the Separatists could have hidden in the thick Felucian foliage.
________

One of the most epic battles erupts between man and beast, one that would forever be written in the annals of history if it weren't for the secret nature of the entire operation. Muscle and bone, metal and heat clashed in a solemn fury that echoed across the land for hours without pause as the relentless pack of wild rancor brought war upon the Republic special forces. Surely this battle would continue as Captain Velern infiltrated the compound meaning the dudes writing this battle can ignore it for now or pretend it's over by the end.

Standing still for but a moment they take in the sight and then proceed with caution, not knowing if by chance all this time there might be some droids or other material still powered. Velern begins by scanning for hidden explosives in the ground. Even then, they split into groups of two, move behind a vehicle and stick to the path the vehicle is likely to have taken.

During the entire trip towards the compound they encounter no active droid or piece of ordnance, the special forces manage to discover landmine after landmine spread about. Before long they breach the outer perimeter of the compound, past the light fortifications. They circle around and enter the inner perimeter past the heavier fortifications, a layer of fortress walls that had been breached in several places.

The facility was in a heavy state of decay, but nonetheless they could see that the anti-air weapons and uplink antenna were active. The message was clearly sent from this place.

"Jarris." Velern says and gestures at the anti-air and antennas. "Make preparations while we locate the target."

"Yes sir." he confirms as he begins to look for a way up to the anti-air guns.

The rest of the team begins to look for a way inside the main facility.

Despite the decay and unchecked growth of flora the Confederate base is fairly easy to navigate. The Special Forces come across a blast door into the main command and control facility, it is sealed shut but clearly has been disturbed prior.

The antenna is on top of a tower attached to the side of another building; likely to be the communications centre. Similarly most anti-air emplacements were either on towers or on top of other buildings, though in the case of the anti-air towers there were access panels at their base.

"Keep an eye out while I try and get us access" The Captain says as he begins to search for an access panel.

The Commando known as Jarris moves to the nearest AA tower and plants a high explosive at the bottom of it, then he hides it with foliage and proceeds to the next one.

Finding an access panel didn't take long, there was a inside a small alcove to the left of the blast doors as you might find on most anywhere from private homes to starships.

In total; there are twelve anti-air emplacements of which six are mounted on towers with the remainder on the top of various buildings and facilities.

"See if any of the droids have anything on them." Velern orders the others. Meanwhile he uses his vibrodagger to force open the panel to get a look at the internal circuitry. The two Commandos begins searching any nearby droids for identification cards of any kind.

Jarris proceeds to the fourth tower.

The circuitry is well preserved and thanks to it being extremely outdated, it is fairly easy to tamper with. The other commandos aren't able to find any identification cards on the droids, it is likely the battle droids had internal systems related to that.

In order to cover more ground quickly, they split, the two commandos move into the side corridor while Velern continues going forward.

As Jarris plants his last explosive at the sixth tower, he knows he has to figure something else out for the rest of the AA and if need be, the antenna. In either case, he has to get to them so he moves to the nearest building and stops at the wall. He attaches a grappling hook to his blaster and fires it over the top. Once it hatches on to something, he climbs.

After some stumbling here and there, encountering various rooms and storage facilities; arsenal, medical bay, depowered droids and barracks, the Republic team makes it to the command centre for the facility but find it tampered with and encrypted beyond hope.

The mad scientist is nowhere to be found. However, the team does find evidence that Mobius had been there as there are emptied food packets strewn about the communications centre. There are indications that Mobius used the Felucian facility to bounce the transmission from another location entirely, seemingly the true origin point of the transmission came from the planet Telos within Enclave space.

But, oddly enough, the command to detonate the bombs across the galaxy did indeed come from the Felucian facility.

"If the signal to detonate the bombs came from here, right after the broadcast, he can't have acted alone Captain." one of the commandos postulate.

"If so, we can't leave any stone unturned. Break radio silence and get reinforcements here." Verlern says. "Jarris, we need the ship here. Whats the status of the AA?"

Jarris responds, having been ready for some time now; "With a little help from the ship, it will be dealt with momentarily. Permission to make some noise captain?"

"Granted, if anything it may scare out any occupants we haven't encountered so far." the captain responds back.
Jarris immediately contacts the ship and asks them to provide fire support against the beacons he planted on the AA and antenna. Seven concussion missiles are loaded and fired in rapid sequence. Eager to get out of the line of fire he makes sure to get out of the way. Using a remote detonator, he blows up the first six which he planted explosives beneath only moments before the concussion missiles reach their target.

A minute before, the other commando team sitting on top of one of the dead rancors, while another takes a holophoto of them, quickly picks up their gear and board the ship. Being on board and concussion missiles fired away, the ships begins take off, making its way to the compound.

As the entire compound shakes due to explosions, Captain Verlern and his team continues the search of the facilities.

The highly intelligent special forces decided to blow up the facility and then search for clues amidst the rubble turning a needle in a haystack into a needle in a haymountain. The victorious commandoes ignore the fact that several rancors simply deemed them unworthy of continuing the fight, especially after decimating 9/10th of the special forces, and moved on.

At any rate, eventually the team stumbles across Mobius himself having apparently hid himself in a secret section of the bunker. Seemingly, the note to go to Telos was a misdirection to distract his attackers so that he might have more time to reactive the war droids. Luckily, that entire thing was avoided. Similarly, the ability for the Republic to make use of the remaining bombs was terminated with the destruction of the communications array, can you imagine what would've happened had it fallen into wrong hands? Might have been interesting.

In the end Mobius was caught, no war droids were fought, several dozen commandoes were dead and an unknown amount of bombs remained scattered across the galaxy all thanks to the heroic Republic soldiers.

OOC:

Its not about who made what mistakes, but how you choose to end to event. If you had an issue with my latest move, you could have asked me about it. But you didn't, instead you choose to end the event in a manner barely above OSIKs choice of ending an event back in the day.

It is beyond me, why my actions have been upsetting to you, when you practically forced me into this event with IC threats of mass terror and infrastructure damage. I have done nothing but trying to play along, if I choose to try and be overly clever with how I approached the event, or being excessive in covering my bases, then that's hardly a crime in roleplaying.

I was fully aware that spending too much time searching on Felucia could have terrible consequences, but that was MY choice to make.
I was fully aware that you might have had a different outcome in mind regarding the Rancors, but YOU asked me not to focus on the fight with the rancors and just settle on describing the aftermath at a later point. Did you expect me to pick up that fight again the exact moment I had need of my ship and crew elsewhere, to just forget about it? How is that fair? You obviously wanted to inflict more casualties that I expressed, but because we didn't fight out that battle, I never had the chance to prove exactly why I would win it. If the Commandos and ship ever got in a serious risk, I would have used the ships weaponry on them.
The Rancors were FATED to lose that fight because of where it took place, and because of what I had at my disposal. Had the rancors been fighting me inside the dense jungle, you might have had the brutal slaughter you wanted. I will not apologize for trying to fight the fight that gives me the advantage.

I don't care if you make mistakes, we all do, things get lost in translation or intent. In the end the only true mistake you have made Milos, is how this ended.

Now, I think I'll stop myself here. I have nothing more constructive to say on the matter.
