Catina Six: Postlude to Holocaust Part 3
[EGAD! HOW LONG IS THIS GOING TO LAST!!!!!]
The galaxy lies in ruin. The heroes of the cantina are trapped in time, and it falls to a group of some of the most unlikely to find the time matrix and prevent evil from conquering all...
*The lower planes. As demons stand around Hel's castle, a tall four armed figure barges through the crowd*
Lokpihet: Out of my way! I was causing misery before your mother was defiled!
Hel! I hear you plan to wage war. I seek to join this alliance of evil and wage war in the higher planes!
Orthos: Something bad is definatley about to happen...
*Meanwhile, in one of the deserted systems, on a small planet called Atredis, a figure moves through the wreckage of the city...*
Cantina Six: Postlude to Holocaust Part III
Cantina Six: Postlude to Holocaust Part III, Shadows of the Past
The current Group:
Aidan: Gargolye (male)
Asgardreid: The ship.
Guy: Shadow (male)
Hal: human (male), Jedi Knight
Heimdall: Aesir (male)
Idun: Aesir (Female)
Marin: (Red, what species is she?), (female)
Misea: Human (female) Jedi Knight
Orthos: Human (male), Jedi (?)
Raschel: ? (female), NRI operative
Svafa: Aesir (female), Valkyrie
The group has faced and past the first of what will be many challenges. Aided with a map, they seek out pieces to a mysterious sword. After collecting them they head to Balmora, a desert world that housed an abandoned Aesirian Outpost. There Heimdall began to reforge the sword and another project.
Meanwhile in the lowest plains an army was forming to wage war against the remains of the galaxy.
Two weeks have passed, and Heimdall who barely has rested during that time is just about ready to put the finishing touches on the sword. His other project he finished last night.
Time: 2 months have passed since the holocaust.
((Oh what the hell Admiral! You go to just about adding the ship's name in there, but not even the Irvine's!?!
And I thought that the two threads covered alot more time then it did... (meaning I thought that two weeks happened so long ago.)
better yet, why don't we at least try to keep the two stories (Cantinas 8 - 10+ and PTH's) in sync time wise?))
((I'm not sure If i like this thread better...))
I knew I forgot someone. Hey I had three hours sleep. Finally, what are you talking about with Time. I'm unsure what you mean....
OOS: Threads merged. This really is my fault for having so many threads stickieed that you couldn't see that a new thread had already been created :D
Deac: I believe we're still shooting for ten threads ^_~ and we don't lack for material. Although I guess you wouldn't know that since it isn't listed in the discussion threads - no one seems to want to stay there ;)
Scar: We aren't going to keep the threads in time sync. Because PTH has to last twenty years, but we can't just keep the RPG going for twenty years ;) thus time warps of various kinds will be implemented.
Let me see if I can create an accurate list of the group, taking a page from Admiral's book and listing alphabetically:
Aidan: Gargoyle (male)
Asgardreid: Aesirian Ship
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
Marin: Human Water-Breather (female)
Misae: Human (female), Jedi Knight
Orthos: Human (male), Darkiller/Alminstar Avatar
Raschel: K'Beran (female), NRI operative
Svafa: Aesir (female), Valkyrie
Does that work for everyone? ^_~

((That works for me.))
Balmora: The Forge
*It was night on Balmora. Heimdall sat at the work bench. The fire was out. The blade was reforged, and Heimdall's second project was finished lay behind him in large boxes.
Picking up his instruments Heimdall carefully finishes the final rune down the blades central fuller. Putting down his instruments Heimdall turns away to address two droids.
While Heimdall is turned away the blade takes on a glimmer. Lightning seems to appear across the highly polished blade. There was a slight crackle, causig Heimdall to turn. He studies the blade when it begins to speak*
Sword: One will not do. More is needed until then speak I shall not.
*Heimdall is taken slightly aback. Still fasinated with the lightning contained in the blade Heimdall quickly issuses orders to the droids, and the outpost. And heads for the Hangar*
Outpost: Everyone report to the Hangar. Everyone report to the hangar. Thank you.
*In the Hangar the droids quickly put down the boxes. On each box was a name of a group member. The box containing Laid across Orthos' box was Starkiller, Hal's sword laid across his box. Each sharpened and in pristine condition. Idun's box had a new sword across it and Svafa had a spear.
Heimdall enters the hangar and is happy to the Droids finishing setting up. Another droid was loading some of the forges equipment into the Asgardreid. Heimdall then waits for the others to arrive.*
*WH Irvine waits, sitting on an empty cargo crate, , attempting to continue his personal training by keeping the crate levitiated precisely at the same height.*
*RH Irvine manages to walk in, looking at WH Irvine, he turns to Heimdall.*
RH Irvine: "My aquintence is attempting to train himself. perhaps he'll have a little better experence if you might allow him to move the creates himself instead of the droids?"
Heimdall: The crates are where I want them for the time being.
*Svafa and Idun enter and give Heimdall curious looks*
*The others arrive at varying degrees of speed. Guy walks in last*
Guy: I see you have the blade completed.
*Hal swings him self out of his bunk, he rubs sleeps from his eyes, washes quickly. Hal dresses in loose brown trousers, a white shirt, travel boots and a buff coloured tunic, he attaches his saber to his belt and picks up his Jedi robe and his backpack.*
In the backpack Hal has:
A datapad containing all the imformation from his father's X-Wing
A BlasTech DL-22 Blaster pistol
Lightweight plasteel body armor
A leather jacket
Survival gear, including rations for 1 week.
*Hal arrives just before Guy.*
Hal: We off, then?
Heimdall: Yes we are going in a minute. Before we do though, I presant you with these. *Heimdall motions to the boxes*
*Idun goes to box with her name. Moving the sheathed sword aside she opens it. In the box lays a full suit of Mithril armor. Picking up a guantlet Idun looks at Heimdall*
Idun: You made us Mithril armor?
Heimdall: Yes. After our encounter with Hel, I believed we needed better armor and protection. Each suit is a custom fit. Try on that guantlet...
*Idun does as requested. Slipping her hand into the Gauntlet. It was comfortable but a little loose. 30 seconds later the gauntlet is encircled by particles. The mithril shrinks and forms it'self to Idun's hand. When the particles disappate the guantlet felt like another layer of skin. Idun rotates her wrist and finally sees runs carved into the guantlet.*
Idun: I see you've haven't lost your touch with that spell.
Heimdall: When you initially put on the armor it will be a little loose. Wait a moment for it to mold itself to you. After that it will be a perfect fit.
Idun: Very nice. I assume this is a standard mix?
Heimdall: Of course. Cortosis is mixed into the Mithril making the armor resistant to lightsabers. It is also extermly light, it is very easy to forget you are wearing armor. For that mater you can wear it under your clothes.
*Idun looking at Heimdall then sees the blueish glint of his own mithril guantlet. He already wore his own armor under his robes.*
Svafa: What about the sword?
Heimdall: Yes I thought we could talk abou....
*Before Heimdall could finish the sword flies from his grip and hovers at the center of the group.*
Sword: This is enough. Rebuilt me you have. A terrible journey you have commenced. Death will soon find and be part of this group. Light is diminishing, dark is gaining, soon eternal night. To continue you must solve this:
Blades of red,
Blood they shed,
Crused by hunters,
Hide in the shadows,
On world believed empty,
Quest will go to heart of the cursed,
Light will fight Dark again.
*With that the blade fell to the ground, giving a resonding clang as it hit. Heimdall pick up the blade*
*WH Irvine became surprised enough that he lost consentration, and the crate fell with a bang.*
RH Irvine: "That was different. I ask that is there a box for all of us? I'd understand if you don't give one to him..." *With smile he motions to WH Irvine.*
WH Irvine: *Turns beat red* "HEY! Wait just a minute!"
RH Irvine: *Witha wide grin.* "How do you expect to train yourself to become 'Jedi equivalent' or how ever you said it, if you can't keep your temper."
*WH Irvine tries to think of a responce, but can think of anything and is stuck with shocked expression on his face.*
*Orthos takes Starkiller*
Orthos: Well, Heimdall, you just repeated the action of a God. I'm impressed.
Now, this riddle...hmmmm
*The figure stands before the Atredia great hall and falls to his knees in sorrow. He turns and leaves, carrying a small dagger with him.
Heimdall: Thank you, and yes everyone has their own suit of armor.
Svafa: Blades of red. Lightsaber can have red blades. However it could also mean that their blades were red because of blood they shed....
Flax: *Monotone.* It's talking about Vampires.
((BD: I assume you mean Hal. Since Flax is dead at the moment))
Idun: I don't think so. There is nothing in it that points to vampires. Going with Svafa's line of thinking. The last part about Light fighting Dark again. Could refer to the Force...
RH Irvine: *picking up his own suit.* "Well if your talking about that, and I can assume that myself and my aquaintence here are with ya for as long as it these events take place, heck I sure don't have anything else better to do. But anyway, if it means 'Light VS Dark', we should just assume that means us and who ever sides along us. Maybe we could manage for check Yavin, for some Jedi to help, unless..."
WH Irvine: "Yes, I know it's cold to say, but I don't think Yavin made it. Besides, why are you calling me 'your aquaintence'."
RH Irvine: "Temper..."
*A few sweat beads form on WH Irvine's face.*
*RH Irvine walks a little bit away from the group, and around the ship. He takes off his top robe, showing him wearing an regular shirt underneath, and having a same body type as his clone. He puts the armour on over the shirt, like the others, the armour is light and flexable. After he puts on the gauntlets, he also is astonised at the morphing of the armour.*
Svafa: It was one of the top targets. We didn't want to risk the Jedi turning. *Looking at Misea*
Misae: *ignoring Svafa* The Sith. Most of them used red blades, they shed much blood, they hid in shadows on worlds believed empty.
Raschel: Cursed by hunters? I can't remember hearing of...
Misae: That's the only part that doesn't fit. *Remembers something* Unless it's talking about those 'special' Aesir...
Guy: *taking out the map* Well, the map is still blank. *to Heimdall* What can your ship tell us about these Sith that fits with the remainder of the clues?
Svafa: Yes, if this is indeed about the Sith, then that line refers to our hunters. You would never had heard about them. When we found one of their bases a group would go in and eliminate them. Then curses would be written on the walls. This was really to frighten any sith to go to that base after we left.
Heimdall: You should know better then anyone else, you did lead a couple of the hunter packs.
Anyways. Let's see. Heart of the cursed, that would have to mean a sith temple. A large one at that, not many would be on desolate worlds. Well?
Asgardreid: Hold on. The galaxy is a big...was a big place. This will take a second. We have one world that matches the criteria of housing a large Sith Temple, and outside the Sith the world is desolate.
Idun: Care to tell us the name?
Asgardreid: I was getting to that. Had I not be so rudley interrupted. Now I don't know if I'm going to tell you.
Heimdall: Just tell us.
Asgardreid: No sense of humor. The world is named Dagon Fel.
Svafa: I remember that place. I lead the raid on that temple myself. It held a very large contingent of Sith. Only Yavin had a larger amount. It also fits. The world has a very slow rotation, I believe it takes 2 years for a complete rotation....
*RH Irvine removes his robed pants, which underneath these were also a casual pair of clothing. Recreational pair of pants he wore underneath were far more flexable to wear then the robed ones, used mostly for important events. He didn't plan on going to another one again in a long while.*
RH Irvine: "Damn, now I have to make sure I can get myself an extra pair of clothing. Oh well."
*RH Irvine combs his hair, then ties it up, keeping a few strains in the front out of the tie. he rejoins the group with his 'outer' clothes wraped up underneath his arm. His belt had his Lightsaber. As he walked out he seemed more athletic and strudier as a fighter then before.*
RH Irvine: "That thing about Siths and red sabers. Its exactly how, um,..." *trying to remember name* "Misae, true, its just more prefered by Sith to use red. Color is just color to me honestly. But I'm of course am no Sith."
*RH Irvine rolls eyes, and pulls out his lightsaber and ignites it showing the crystal was infact red.* "Call it something that might of had ran in the family..."
Idun: Yes, we all know that a lighsaber's color is determined by it's crystals. It doesn't change the fact that the Sith still predominatly used lighsabers with ruby colored blades.
Heimdall: Don't dimiss color so quickly Irvine. It often has meanings behind it.
Idun: *looking at RH Irvine* Why didn't you change in you quaters on the ship and not behind it?
Misae: *to RH Irvine* Please shut up. Stop pretending to be a Master Jedi; it isn't fooling anyone. The Sith began using red lightsabers because, according to my Holocron, they found a method of creating synthetic crystals that were slightly stronger than normal crystals when energized by the Dark Side. The crystals were red. And oh, by the way, you made another slip; all the Jedi felt Yavin IV's destruction. We felt the deaths of our comrades through the Force. If you were really the powerful Jedi you claimed to be you would have sensed them.
Guy: I hate to interrupt, but it seems the map has finally changed again. *He holds it up*
RH Irvine: *First to Idun* "Well I had these clothes under my others." *Then to Misae* "Now, it is you who assumes that I think that I am master, I'm not. For the better part I'm at the same level as you are. As for Yavin IV, yes I was kinda distracted at that point of time to know if one single solitarely planet was blown up or not, last to my recallection is that most of the habitable parts of the Galaxy have been destoryed. Those on Yavin had been only been backgorund noise compared to the rest of the galaxy."
["Dagon Fel" also being the city in the Sheogorad region of Vvardenfell, Admiral? Morrowind is such a great game... ]
Orthos: Or could it be Korriban, the sith capital? My...Syrnl took me to see it once. It was...awful. The very air is filled with darkness, the rivers run red like blood.
*The figure enters a spacecraft and lifts off Atredis*
????: Damn, where is he...I should be able to sense him! He is family after all....
((Yes it is. Where do you think I got the name Balmora from...,
http://admiralodin.20megsfree.com/index.html (something I've been working on for Morrowind))
Heimdall: I don't think so. When Dagon Fel was said the map changed. Also we my have blew up that system...
Idun: Can you project a image of the Dagon Fel system?
Asgardreid: Of course I can.
*A image appears in showing the system. Idun looking at the map and that at the hologram*
Idun: The two match...
*Hal turns around. Gestures to the gostly visage of his father.*
Hal: Did no one else notice him? Anyway, why are so obsessed with Vampires?
Flax: Huh? Oh, sorry. Coruscant is crawling with them. I got distracted.
Dragon Fel is a very old Sith site. However evil endures for many generations. By careful, the echos of the Sith do not fade with time.
((I JUST got Morrowind. Courtesy of Rogue15 :D
BD: Um, Coruscant is not crawling with vampires. What is Flax talking about?
Scar: Report? Misae is a Jedi. RH Irvine is from an offshoot group who went off somewhere long ago. What is RH Irvine talking about?))
Misae: Good. Korriban isn't exactly on the top of my list of things to see in my lifetime.
((Red, before you posted that I got rid of that part ^_^))
((If you have the pc version then you can use my mod. If you have the X-box version then your out of luck))
Heimdall: Come on lets get aboard the ship.
*Heimdall boards the Asgardreid and heads towards the bridge. Svafa and Idun follow him each carrying their armor. They move to their quaters.
There they lock the doors and undress. Opening the crates they begin to put on the mithril armor*
*As RH Irvine enters the ship, WH Irvine picks up his box, and then enters the ship. Soon after he throws off his coat, and puts on the armour, then he throws back on the coat.*
[Cool! When will it be ready for use? Talking of mods for games, if anyone plays Neverwinter Nights, I'm building a mod for that]
Orthos: So what? We're going to another world just like Korriban. Figures.
*The mysterious figure feels a dark surge in the force.*
????: Dagon Fel? Strange...unless...oh gods...the sith have him.
*The mysterious figure's ship jumps into hyperspace*
((As long as you have Tribunal you can get on the island and Explore. There is still much I have to do, there is no release date for it.))
((Red: You had someone turn up on Coruscant, kill a Vampire and thentake the soul. After that he went to Freedon VII and Vampified the assassin that tried to kill Orthos. You made it clear that Vampires were running amuck, so by now the planet must be swarming.))
*Hal wanders off to his quarters, mutting something about Asier being totally in-human. When he gets to his quarters hew stows the armor in a locker without hesitation.
Hal then sits on his bed and begins to meditate.*
Flax: You know she will fall.
Hal: I don't know that. She's been through a lot.
Flax: She can't cope, she wallows in self pity. She should not have been trained.
Hal: That was her master's perogative.
Flax: You know she tried to kill herself.
Hal: She had a moment of weakness.
Flax: Not a moment. I will go to her.
Hal: Wait.... *Flax dissapears.*
Flax: Misae, we need to talk.
((BD: Ahhh. No, you're just mixed up. That planet was a small colony planet in the outer regions. Vampires are running amuck there. In the outer regions :)
Actually that makes more sense prophecy-wise anyway. lol
Admiral: I don't have Tribunal. But I do have Morrowind for PC. The Elder Scrolls Construction Set looks quite interesting, for one thing ^_^))
*Misae is shocked for a moment at Flax' appearance, then calms and realizes*
Misae: Oh...One of you. *voice hardening* Go away. You're dead. You can't help me. *She turns away defiantly*
Flax: *Calmly* You need help, you are in turmoil. If you did not need me I would not be here.
*RH Irvine, whom didn't hear any thing inside Misae's quarters, knocks on her door.*
[Isn't Flax supposed to be trapped in time with Deac and the others?]
*Orthos goes to find Raschel*
((The original group is at one time dead and at the same time trapped traveling in time. As red said they were basically copied.
I'm also assuming that everyone is aboard the Asgardried))
*Svafa's armor finishes fitting itself to her. She looks in to a mirror. In the center of the Cuirasse is the symbol for the Valkyries. Above that and to the right is smaller symbol of her family's coat of arms. To the left is a symbol for the Knights of Mentor.
At the bottom of the box was a sheild. On it was her family's coat of arms as well. Svafa marvelled at the craftsmenship of the armor and shield. She always knew her little brother liked using forges but she never realized how skilled a craftsmen he had become.
Stowing the shield. Svafa attaches puts on her sword/blaster belt. Fixing the holster to her hip she sheaths her sword. She then stores her new spear. Finally she leaves her quaters and joins Heimdall on the bridge, when she enters she seals the door.*
Svafa: Thank you for the armor. The craftsmenship is astounding.
Heimdall: Your welcome. Only yours, mine and Iduns are so ornate and I only made shields for us. For the others it is just plain.
Svafa: Is it wise to give them such a gift?
Heimdall: Fear not sister. There is a safe guard. I amoung the runes I put a safe guard. All that is needed is for us to say their name and a proper word and the armor will disintigrate.
Svafa: I should have known. So we are heading to Dagon Fel, I could have lived happily not having to go back there.
Heimdall: Luckly for us, you will know what traps were set.
Svafa: True. Shall I begin to set the course?
Heimdall: Sure. There a few things I must prepare. When we leave if anyone follows us here they will only find dust.
