Same rules as always: No godmodding, ect.
--------------------------------------------------------

Cantina 6: Postlude to Holocaust Part IV, Dark Surprises

Current charactes:

Aidan: Gargoyle (male)
Asgardreid: Aesirian Ship
Elella: Human (female), Orthos's cousin
Guy: Human (male), Shadow
Hal: Human (male), Jedi Knight
Heimdall: Aesir (male)
Idun: Aesir (female)
Irvine (Red): Human (male), pseudo-Jedi Knight
Irvine (White): Human Clone (male), Force Adept

------------------------------------------------------------
Story so far:

The group has completed two quests in finding the time Matrix. The second quest sent them to what was supposed to be an unihabited Sith world. There they encountered a strange Sith army. During the quest Orthos found Elella (or she found him) and the group grew by one. At the conclusion the group had their first encounter with the Jotuns.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Currently:

4 months have passed, the group have been following the map from one solar system to another. They have now just completed a very large and time consuming circle. The Asgardried is in orbit of the world of Enoy.

Redwing 01-26-2004 01:22 AM

Enoy

*The map's trail had finally stopped changing, after four months in which Misae Arjas thought she was finally going to go insane. She had kept herself sequestered away almost the entire time of the trip, communicating with almost no one. She had grown pale and guant and talked little. But she went to the bridge when the Asgardried announced their arrival at the end of their destination.

Guy was up in his ship when the Asgardried arrived at Enoy. Raschel was looking out at the bridge. She felt a sinking feeling*

Raschel: *softly, to herself* Four months, and we're right back where we started.

*Guy walks in behind her* The planet has changed since we last came here. I'm now picking up readings from it that I've never seen before. That may be the reason for the circle we've been led in.

Aidan: *entering* So you're sure the map's stopped changing now? If I spend one more day doing nothing, I'm going to explode...

*Marin walks in after him*

Admiral 01-26-2004 01:27 AM

*Heimdall in the pilots chair has his eyes closed and his feet up on the console*

Asgardreid: Preparing to scan the planet. Should take 48 hours, everyone can go back to doing nothing or exploding if they so desire.

*A small smile appears on Heimdall's face at the ship's comments. Svafa sat in the copilots chair and hits the console*

Asgardreid: Hey no need to be violent, I was only joking.

Kuuki 01-26-2004 02:21 AM

((admiral: I'd like to say one thing though: "Irvine (Red): Human (male), pseudo-Jedi Knight"
in which you calling RH Irvine a pseudo, or false/fake, jedi isnt accurate, its more like his test was fore coming to become a Jed.))


*During the time WH Irvine kept himself busy by employing self teaching methods of helping himself to become more atuned in the ways of the force, while in other times, trains his more physical attributes through simple training in the ships Cardgo hold.

Since the four months, he desided it might have been better if he had a hair cut, few unlike him, but he thought it would have lessened any confusion between himself and his counterpart.

Meanwhile, RH Irvine, kept himself isolated at times, most of with is meditiation, does come out every now and then and help WH Irvine with training with the force.

When ever his is not doing either or, he'd can be seen everynow and then staring at either forearm, the scars on his arm reminds him of that day. He too shanged his appearence a bit, growing a beard.*

Admiral 01-26-2004 02:46 PM

((Scar: He was not given the rank of Jedi by the Council meaning he is not a true Knight, and that is the same list from the last thread.))

Deac 01-26-2004 05:12 PM

*Orthos has spent his time catching up with Elella and learnt her story. He has also broken the news of Deac's death to her. He has grown a lot more collected in the past months. But, ever since approaching Enoy, he has been acting strangely*

Orthos: I sense something...elusive.

Admiral 01-28-2004 12:44 AM

*Idun had spent the 4 months tending to those injured and when not doing that she stayed in the upper levels and only really socialized with Heimdall and Svafa.

She was currently in her quaters trying to sleep when she suddenly awoke. Idun was drenched in sweat and breathing heavily. She could not remember the dream rather the nightmare that had caused this, but she did have a forbodding feeling in her stomach.

Dressing in a comfortable clothes Idun puts on her armor and then a light robe over it. She looks out the viewport and see Enoy handing below the ship*
------------------------------

Heimdall: So what does the map say now? Do we keep start a new circle or actually land on the planet?

Kuuki 01-28-2004 02:16 AM

*RH Irvine walking in*

Irvine "I though I've heard Aidan asking that very same question just a moment ago."

Deac 01-28-2004 01:20 PM

Elella: *quiet* What do you sense? I only feel you..

Orthos: That's what I sense. And I shouldn't. The Force ignores me, remember....

Redwing 01-28-2004 06:14 PM

((OOS: I'll assume that Heimdall has joined the others since he didn't seem to be asking Svafa or the Asgardried?))

Guy: Yes, the map has stopped changing. It seems to indicate that we're done moving...as I was just saying, the planet is giving off strange readings on my sensors that weren't there before. I believe we ought to land soon.

Admiral 01-28-2004 07:31 PM

((Red: Heimdall hasn't moved, He and Svafa are still in the bridge, he still has his legs up and eyes closed. As you had stated your characters are either in the bridge or are close enough to hear his comment))

Heimdall: Well I guess that means we wait here for the time being. I was hopping the map would show us some destination on planet, but perhaps we are supposed to observe something from space, or the time isn't right just yet.

Deac 01-29-2004 04:58 PM

Elella: Great. More waiting. Figures

Orthos: Something's down there.

Redwing 01-29-2004 06:12 PM

((Ah - for some reason I assumed the Aesir were in a different room, oops))

Raschel: We've been doing nothing but waiting for months. Maybe a few of us can go down...I don't know, look around a bit to see what kind of situation we can expect? Whoever wants to can stay up here and keep watching just in case...

Kuuki 01-29-2004 07:52 PM

Irvine "In my humble opinion I believe those people should be Heimdall, Elella, Guy, myself and Misae. Taking in a few considerations in of why I picked, of course."

Redwing 01-30-2004 01:25 AM

Aidan: Who put him in charge?

Raschel: What considerations are you talking about?

Kuuki 01-30-2004 01:38 AM

Irvine "No one put me in charge, I was just making my opinion. Besides, if there were a sort of 'party' to be made to go onto the survice to 'check things out', first obviously an Aesir would definately come, and Heimdall being the one whom seem to have taken control of most situations."

"Now for Misae, Elella and myself, just a few practitioners of the Force that would help incase of a conflict. Finally with Guy, other then his obvious personality..." *mentioning his own abilities in combat* "His ship can cloak here and land giving the opertunity of surprise to what ever is down there.

In an case we don't need everyone, and in case of ambush the rest can either make the trip down to reenforce or just bombard what ever is down there from orbit. Your choice. But in any case its only my opinion."

Redwing 01-30-2004 01:42 AM

Aidan: You force users certainly are arrogant. You didn't even think about what Marin and I can do.

Kuuki 01-30-2004 01:52 AM

Irvine *says with a smirk* "Don't want to let out all of our best people here, incase something goes bad. Besides I would have picked Marin if it wasn't for my opinion that Misae could use a fresh walk. Same for myself, but I'm sure everyone can agree with me that everyone could use the same."

Admiral 01-30-2004 02:28 AM

((Red: You think the Aesir would let people on the bridge if they were not already there?, Scar please keep puttin the WH or RH so it is easy to follow which Irvine your using))

Asgardreid: I do not need a walk of fresh air, in fact I do not need a walk or air at all.

Svafa: The impatience of youth. Don't forget that the map changes when we either accomplish something or have a new destination. The map hasn't changed so that implies either we need to wait or more likely that we must do something in space before we proceed.

Heimdall: Interesting logic Irvine. Also consider that a planet...

*Runes flash across a monitor in front Heimdall who had finally opened his eyes. Turns his head to look at the system's star*
------------------------------

*Idun was wandering the upper deck she look out into space and saw the many pinpricks of distant stars. Many of which no longer existed but still could be seen. Turning around to the look in the direction of the system star a shadow seems to crosses it path. She quickly sends a message to Heimdall to look at the Star.

Thirty seconds later another shadow crosses the star, larger then the first. This continues to happen in with each pass the shadow grows larger and larger. Soon the shadow encompasses the hole star and as soon as it does all light from the Star disappears.

Idun turns to look behind her and instead of seeing a large amount of stars she only see utter blackness. Not a single star was visible.
-------------------------------------------

Heimdall *muttering*: Eternal Darkness.

*All lights in the Asgardreid suddenly go off*

Kuuki 01-30-2004 03:34 AM

((Irvine = RH Irvine, I'm doing that now in the Cantina ones. I'm considering a slight name change just for this for WH Irvine, but i can't think of a good name ^_^;;;; ))
Irvine "Um, I didn't mean you Asgardreid, I knew you couldn't..."

Deac 01-30-2004 04:29 PM

*Elella lights her lightsaber*

Orthos: What the...?

Elella: I don't like the look of this...

Redwing 01-30-2004 06:39 PM

((OOS: By "bridge" I meant a place they could all gather together and look out on the planet...I have a bad habit of throwing these words out like that ;)

But really, how do I know how the Asgardried is set up? :)

Also: Why are the lights in the ship all off? Will our characters' equipment still work?))


*Aidan illuminates the area around him with bright blue and white arcs of lightning around his body*

Marin: Eternal darkness?

Aidan: What do you mean? What's going on...

Kuuki 01-30-2004 07:07 PM

((I was wodering that too, but i thought that it would be more interesting that basically everything that was technical didnt work, Ie Irvine's Lightsaber not working (which i hope thats what you got out of it)))

Admiral 01-31-2004 05:39 AM

((Red: You should know better. Your looking for observation lounge (which for the group would just be the lounge they are all familar with.) For the time being we say they are on the actual bridge and not the lounge (be more careful next time :P)

Please Note the Upper deck is still off limits to non Aesir.

Scar and Red: Correlation does not prove causation))

*Svafa hits the console again*

Svafa *In a low voice*: Turn on the lights or you will regret it.

*The lights slowly come back on*

Asgardreid: Sorry for trying to lighten the mood. It was only a joke.

Heimdall: In very poor taste. Eternal Darkness is what has or is occuring. The light of all the stars have vanished form the galaxy. Soon temperatures on the remaining worlds will drop and an endless winter will set in...

((Scar: I trust that answer's any questions you have/had about this. If it didn't technology wasn't effected by it nor will it be)).

Redwing 01-31-2004 08:08 AM

((OOS: Admiral, eternal darkness isn't possible, is it? - unless it's going to be reversed long before the back-in-time events of Cantina 7 take place i.e. Ken'atra grows up...or am I mistaken?

And the observation lounge is duly noted. ;)))

Aidan: *aside* Eternal darkness...dammit, looks like I'm never getting away from sleeping under a sunlamp again.

Guy: What is creating this darkness?

Kuuki 01-31-2004 02:04 PM

WH Irvine "Lack of stars in the universe that there of..."

Irvine "But of course the light that would get to this point from those stars would need to travel several thousand years in order to get here, for it to go all out for that reason is practically impossible."

Deac 01-31-2004 07:41 PM

Orthos: It seems that we're going to have to pick up the pace....

Admiral 02-01-2004 03:50 AM

((Red: You are just going to have to wait and see))

Svafa: Well it isn't exactly eternal, not yet anyways.

Heimdall: She is right, to explain this in detail would take to long and would be very hard for some to comprehend. To put is simply,evil has gained a large advantage over the foces of good and that has caused the light to vanish from this galaxy.

Svafa: We can only go as quickly as the map allows us and right now the map wants us to stay here, so unless it has changed there is nothing we really can do. This was expected anyways.

Deac 02-01-2004 03:01 PM

Elella: Remind me...what does the map lead to that can help us? Didn't Ragnarok already fail miserably?

Admiral 02-01-2004 04:36 PM

Svafa: Your new to this so I will try an explain. Ragnarok cannot fail and has not occured. What has occured and is occuring is an event called Gotterdammerung. It is a twisted version of Ragnarok. It will end in twenty years with the complete destruction of this galaxy.

Heimdall: There is an ancient artifact that will allow us to reverse Gotterdammerung, the maps guide us in the quest to get this artifact.

BattleDog 02-01-2004 06:19 PM

*Hal has spent the last four months engaged in a single activity, he looks tired and drained but not unhealthy. He now enters the bridge.*

Hal: We have arrived?

Deac 02-01-2004 07:42 PM

Elella: Makes sense. What is it we're looking for, exactly?

Kuuki 02-01-2004 08:14 PM

Irvine *softly to Hal* "You look like hell, yes we're at Enoy, the map hasn't changed so we're figuring what we're going to do next. Then suddenly the stars in the galaxy went out. Now they're just giving Elella the run down on whats going on."

Redwing 02-02-2004 02:29 AM

Aidan: *to Elella* You mean your cousin hasn't told you? If he doesn't trust you, why should we?

Misae: *muttering, mostly to herself* Darkness...it's night-time, now. The final curtain's falling...

Raschel: If the map wants us to keep sitting here, I've got a feeling we've got all the time in the world for you to explain to us what's going on, Heimdall.

Guy: *having slipped out of the room, now re-entering* However, Raschel, the map has changed. *He holds up the object in question* Looks like it's time to head for the surface.

Deac 02-02-2004 04:46 PM

Elella: But didn't a bunch of guys already go after the time matrix?

Orthos: I don't know. All I know is that Deac is gone....

Elella: Dad...?

Admiral 02-02-2004 07:54 PM

((Deac: How did Elella know that Deac, Odin, Rwos ect. are hunting for the Time Matrix? Since in this timeline they are dead...))

*Heimdall has the Asgardreid examine the map and plot a course for a landing about 2 hours away from the site*

Heimdall: We will be a little careful and land a little outside the area and walk the rest of the way in.

Deac 02-02-2004 08:00 PM

Orthos: I take it we're all going, then?

Redwing 02-03-2004 07:02 AM

((Maybe Deac meant something else? ;)))

*Raschel looks at Orthos* You want to stay behind?

Deac 02-03-2004 04:42 PM

Orthos: I...sense something down there.

*Flashback noise*

"but if this didn't happen....he would die.

Something...waiting...and why do I sense myself?

Admiral 02-04-2004 08:36 PM

Svafa: If any wish to cower inside their quarters then they are free to do so. Otherwise we are all going.

*The Asgardreid begins it's descent. Svafa stands and goes upstairs to get ready while Heimdall stayed in the bridge.

A couple of minutes later the Asgardreid lands in a grassy plain, it is pitch black outside. Heimdall stands and ushers everyone out of the bridge which promptly shuts and locks once everyone is gone.

The ramp is lowered, and some flood lights turn on to provide the group with a little light. Heimdall descends the ramp and while doing so swings a dark blue cloak around himself.

Heimdall wore his mithril armor openly at the moment. It blended well with the darkness. Svafa came down the ramp a few moments later and tossed Heimdall a rifle which he promptly slung across his back. As usual he carried his sword and blaster at his sides.

Svafa wore a dark blue cloak and her armor openly as well and was equiped very similar to Heimdall.*

Svafa: See anything?

Heimdall: Yes in the distance I see some light from maybe a town or city. I would estimate it will take us 2 hours to get there. We leave as soon as everyone is ready.
