OOC: That's a pretty awesome ship! Where's it from? (Please say from a movie.. :P )

Found it in my pictures folder and thought it looked cool.

Reminds me a bit of the hotel ship in the Fifth Element, though...

You know, looking at it, I might make a few more of these. The ship is inherently big, as seen in the picture, but it would be cool to have a few of them...

I suppose it is about time to field test some of my new abilities and toys. *Praxis thought to himself, after visiting his quarters to pick up his armor and weapons he heads toward the hanger with a handful of his officers.*

"Prepare my starfighter." -Praxis

"Which one sir?" - officer

"The usual."

*Praxis boards the Razorbat and takes off from the hanger. He inputs the coordinates into the nava-computer and HPs to the destination. Upon arriving he hails the Derelict vessel with a transmission of his arrival. Then lands in the hanger and exits his ship, and waits for his former master to greet him.*

"Welcome, Praxis, to the Spectre," a voice booms in the hangar bay.

"I am the challenger of this duel, and thus, as was custom with the Mandalorians, I believe (KotOR 2 style! xD), I will allow you to decide the terms of our fight."

"It's been a long time, I have a very busy schedule but its not every day I get to do something like this. This is a good ship, definitely challenges the norm in its design. I would expect nothing less of you."

"As for our duel.... since we are fighting for sport I say we fight until either one of submits or is incapacitated. Anything goes as long we don't end up blowing ourselves up along with the ship."

"May I also ask for a tour of the ship before we begin, if its not too much trouble? It's a rather unfamiliar and unique ship that I would like to enjoy before we rip it apart from the inside."

OOC: You can PM me the tour so we don't bore anyone reading this ^_^ Unless it does turn out fun.

OOC: The tour is going to be short, so don't worry.

IC: Veritum appears next to Praxis. Had he not been used to the Sith Lord's conjuration tricks, it would have surprised him, but as it was, Praxis merely half-smiled.

"Of course. After you," Veritum gestured to the door way. Praxis walked through and found himself in an elevator, Veritum beside him. The doors closed and after a brief wait, the doors opened again.

They were in a large dome-like area. Thick, reinforced transparent durasteel protected the two of them from the vacuum of space while providing them with an almost nauseating view of the star-filled void.

"The ship you're in was intended to be much like your artillery ship. Surely you noticed the four forward facing cannons on the side. These were intended to cripple most ships in the first salvo. In addition, stealth systems would allow for the ship to position itself perfectly, hence the name "Spectre". Obviously, a sneak attack is what this ship is geared towards. However, the fact that I already have enough ships for that role is what prevents me from mass-producing this."

"I have plans for the design that I may share later, but for the moment, please, enough about the ship." Veritum gestures towards the center of the arena. The dome is devoid of anything save the floor. The Sith Lord teleports to one edge of the arena, standing tall. "Shall we?"

*Praxis draws a cylindrical device from the back of his waist, it looked like a lightsaber but it was much too large and think and it looked very simple at first glance. Praxis lifts it in front of him and a holograpghic interface appears, he presses a few buttons and it transforms into a katana-like sword which coursed with energy along the blade.*

*He takes a simple defensive stance.* "I'll allow my host to lead with the first move.*

Veritum smiles at the weapon. "How courteous of you."

Veritum's armor, the armor of Aaron Karax, appears around him, replacing the robe he was wearing. A helmet obscures his face, a black visor replacing his green and red eye.

He reaches for no weapon, but charges towards Praxis nonetheless.

*Praxis flips his blade around and stabs into into the floor and penetrates with ease, then he sends Force lightning through it and into the floor and arcs of electricity bound at Veritum through the floor.

Veritum outstretches his hands, the gauntlets scraping the floor as they take the brunt of the lightning attack. As it continues to course through the floor, Veritum twists around, taking the force of the lightning for a second before disappearing.

He appears right behind Praxis, hands outstretched. Praxis feels the full power of his own lightning, absorbed by Veritum, along with some of Veritum's own power, channeled into a concentrated fiery explosion into Praxis' back. The force sends him flying forward, also causing him to lose his grip on his weapon. Veritum flips back, the absorbed energy discharged. He shrugs off any electricity still coursing through him. The katana disappears and reappears in Veritum's hand.

OOC: You're attack reminds me of a certain EXTREMELY ANNOYING and VERY HATED Mass Effect 3 character...

*Praxis lands hands first and front flips back to his feet and turns around. His armor absorbed both the blast and lightning which caused no direct injury to him, exactly what he designed it to do other than simply protect him from conventional weapons and for show, his arms begin pulsating with the same energy again. He looks at Veritum and smiles beneath his mask. Praxis snaps his fingers, the blade retracts and spikes pierce into Veritum's hand before it violently launches out of it and separates into smaller fragments in mid air. In a matter of seconds dozens of smaller blades are found orbiting around Praxis.*

"Impressive but nonetheless foolish to try to handle my weapon, I might add that those were poison tipped spikes as a precaution to such a situation."

*Praxis channels the lighting into the orbiting blades which spread out and form pairs, each holding a consistent arc of energy between them which are amplified and focused into beams. They begin rotating, then spinning rapidly until they form over a dozen energy disks. Praxis being a master telekinetic controls them without lifting a finger, he only needs to keep his eyes on his target.*

*They launch in rapid succession, Veritum naturally dodges but is still cut as they come from all directions. Praxis keeps some in reserve in case Veritum teleports.*

As the katana retracts, Veritum loosens his grip on the weapon in surprise, and as the spikes protrude, they are stopped by his armored gauntlet and simply push the weapon out of his hand, leaving him uninjured. He backflips to the edge of the arena as Praxis is preparing his next attack.

As the disks launch, Veritum simply focuses on the projectiles, and they each disappear when they come close to him, reappearing right behind him, embedding themselves in the wall. While the majority miss, a few scrape his armor, but he shrugs off the electricity, used to its sensation.

He teleports again, this time about twenty feet from Praxis. Before the latter can react, his reserve disks stop glowing as the shards that act as the energy conduits shatter.

Veritum extends his hand, and a spear of shadows grows. He whirls it around a few times before advancing towards Praxis.

*Praxis remains focused, analyzing Veritum's moves, seeing him as he uses incredible speed combined with his masterful use of fold space to counter his moves. Veritum takes a few blows from the disks as they were simply made of Force electricity he had conjured. Just as Praxis had planned.

*As Veritum conjures his spear Praxis snaps his fingers again and the shattered blades whirl around Veritum as he charges, they completely surround him with speed faster than the eye can see. He is forced to teleport or be shredded.*

Veritum pauses as Praxis snaps his fingers. He hears the blades remove themselves from the wall, and as they rush towards him, he simply smirks. The spear disappears, the energy used to fuel it, and then some, channeled into a Force repulse strong enough to disintegrate anything within five feet of him, destroying the blades for good.

OOC: To clarify, I wasn't charging, I was slowly advancing.

*To Veritum's surprise, that wasn't the end of Praxis's device. When he turns to face Praxis again and sees thousands of small particles assembling themselves in his hand, forming the original cylindrical device he had seen before. Though it was incomplete, parts were missing from it. Praxis places it back on his belt and pulls out another duplicate device, which transforms and molds itself into several lightsaber hilts. Praxis holds one in his hand and levitates the others and activates them at once. As he was doing this he kept his eyes on Veritum the whole time, ready to react to any move he makes.*

*Praxis takes a stance, lightsaber in his hand readied and the others orbiting him.*

Veritum smirks. "So, you think to overwhelm me with sheer numbers?"

He draws his lightsaber and ignites it, a meter long orange blade shooting out of the pronged hilt. At the same time, several slits of shadows, equal to the number of lightsabers Praxis had around him, appeared around Veritum.

The Sith Lord adopts a Makashi stance, waiting for Praxis to make a move.

*Praxis takes several steps back, then extends his hands forward and send the lightsabers forth, they quickly surround Veritum. Praxis makes a few twitches of his fingers and the lightsabers take up different positions. In fact they were adopting lightsaber stances of their own, they moved as though they were being wielded by 10 invisible Jedi or Sith or both, 8 surrounding Veritum, 2 at at Praxis's flanks.*

"Sheer numbers alone? Absolutely not. I've always been fond of quality over quantity, but that doesn't mean I don't strive to have both."

"Now... watch the puppet master at work."

*Praxis continues to twitch and gesture his fingers and hands as though he were pulling the strings of a band of invisible puppets. The lightsabers began to move again, 3 of them attack Veritum. One of them faced him head on with the Makashi stance to match Veritum's form and kept him occupied with a one-on-one duel. With no one actually wielding the weapon, it was not easy to read the movements and effectively counter. This second device that the lightsaber's were forged from was imbued in the Force by Praxis himself which allowed them to be manipulated with incredible precision and control.*

*The other two employed the Juyo and Ataru forms, ready to quickly devastate Veritum from his rear flanks. It was Three pronged attack from all sides, the other invisible warriors took up positions throughout the arena. The three attackers quickly take full advantage of their opponent's stance which was not made for engaging multiple opponents and manage to land a few blows before Veritum is able to switch tactics and counter.* (OOC: This of course happened very quickly, and I doubt that even a master like yourself would of seen this coming, I'll leave how you handle the wounds and your next course of action up to you.)

As the lightsabers move forward to surround Veritum, the slits of shadow disappear, reappearing through the hilts of each weapon, including the two around Praxis, slicing them in half.

OOC: How long has it been a couple days? Sorry, been busy.

IC: *The lightsabers caught in the blast radius are obliterated, Praxis chooses to recall and disassemble the rest. Soon they shape-shift back to the original device. This one was also incomplete like the last, but Praxis pulls out the other device and combines them both and replaces it back on his belt.*

"In case you aren't familiar with such technology, these devices are made entirely of nanites or microscopic machines capable of a variety of functions. Project Forge is a little research project I cooked up to make a the perfect weapon for the most elite warriors. Once we're finished we'll literally have the most versatile weapon in the galaxy. In short, these nanites have the capability to transform into any weapon in existence. Or even weapons that don't exist, if you have a little imagination. But for now they're are still in the prototype stage, this particular batch of nanites were primarily made for data gathering so we can work out the rest of the bugs and flaws. We've barely scratched the surface of what they are fully capable of. No matter."

*Praxis reaches for his hip and pulls a lightsaber from it's holster (or sheath, whatever you want to call it)*

"If your interested I'll explain more later. Without further adieu, let's get back to our duel."

*Praxis's arms begin charging up with energy*

"Shall we?"

*Praxis slowly advances toward Veritum, adopting the Makashi stance as well. After they walk about 20 feet they strafe around in a circle, staring at each other, looking for an opening (cliche but classic). Finally they both charge at each other and clash. Praxis opens with a forward thrust then pulls back and parries.*

OOC: Probably could of come up with something better, but if you don't end up pulling off some elaborate finishing move early on or whatever I'm sure I can make things more interesting later in the fight. For now I guess we'll just keep it simple and see where it goes from here.

Veritum swipes his saber to the side, knocking Praxis' weapon to Veritum's left. He swings at Praxis' neck, but he manages to parry the swing, but Veritum presses the attack, stepping forward and forcing Praxis to step back. He doesn't put too much power behind his attacks, just enough to keep Praxis busy.

*Praxis carefully times his parries and counterattacks, but remains on defense. He finally sees and opening and makes a diagonal upward swing and causes Veritum to recoil. His body is left exposed and Praxis goes for a horizontal swipe, but Veritum manages to dodge. Praxis enters the Niman stance and pulls Veritum towards him, he resists and rather than being pulled into Praxis's lightsaber, they clash with neither backing down.*

As Veritum's lightsaber comes forward to clash with Praxis', Veritum tilts to the side a bit and deactivates his lightsaber, rolling behind Praxis. Before the latter can react, a blade extends from Veritum's wrist and slices Praxis' side. Veritum uses his momentum to get to his feet, emerging in a defensive Soresu stance while Praxis recovers from the blow.

*Though the wound isn't too deep, Praxis takes caution and decides to cauterize it so it doesn't open up and become worse. He gently slides the lightsaber along the cut as Veritum stands behind him. Then suddenly he spins around and flings his lightsaber at Veritum, Praxis runs behind it. He deflects it, and sends it flying. Praxis draws another lightsaber, ignites and ducks down low seeing and opening around Veritums legs. Praxis fakes the blow spinning around, pushing off with his hands and delivers a powerful Force kick to Veritum's abdomen. He is sent flying into the wall, and Praxis uses his momentum to back-flip onto his feet.

As he turns to face Veritum his hands charge up with Force energy and he throws what seems to be miniature Spears of Midnight Black. He throws them one after another, like throwing knives or kunai, 3 of them pierced into his chest armor. Though not as lethal, they were faster and more accurate than the original technique. Veritum, still recovering from the shock from the previous attack, is barely able to defend (OOC: Even super-Sith can be pretty f'ed up by a Force kick to the stomach, just be glad you didn't take it to the knee, otherwise we could of gotten sidetracked with the jokes xD ). Praxis returns to the Niman stance 30 feet away and readies himself for anything.*

OOC: That was longer than I thought it would be, but I wanted to turn it up a bit, I'm sure you'll be coming back with a vengeance. :/

Veritum slams against the wall. The shadow daggers fly towards him, but he is able to teleport a few feet to the side, the best he could muster, given the circumstances, avoiding the majority of the daggers, save one which grazes his arm.

He lands on the floor, fully recovered, igniting his lightsaber once more. "Not bad, Praxis," he chuckles. Flames flicker in his hands and a strand of fire extends outwards, curling and growing until it becomes something akin to a whip. Veritum walks once again towards Praxis, preparing himself for any Force assault.

Description

An officer aboard the Ragnarok alerts Praxis to a message. A few minutes later, the Sith Lord arrives at the bridge and plays the recording.

"Hello, my old apprentice," a familiar voice, Veritum's fills the room. "I have a proposal, if you will. A duel, just for fun, because I am bored out of my skull at the moment, and I doubt you are faring much better."

"I'll send the location to you. It's an old cruiser of mine, a model I never really got around to producing. It's derelict now and should make a perfect location for us to fight in."

"I look forward to meeting you in battle and seeing how much you have improved. Veritum out."
