One last thing certain Jedi are powerful enough to prevent Coruscant from being nuked. (just as Quhn Vaas gave his life in PtH to save Coruscant from being destroyed by the Aesir) So, it won't happen. Jedi are not murderers - and even if Flax feels it's the best thing to do, other Jedi will not.))



Starr: *to Gilian* He knew you. Another creature from your universe?

Gilian: A..a vampire hunter. A mortal, from Earth. He disappeared, well, hundreds of years ago. I don't understand how he's still alive. *She shakes her head* Anyway, I have to leave. With Rwos. He needs to get medical attention immediately.

Starr: Wait! My master Cracken...

Gilian: You're going to have to find your master yourself.

((OK, same thing as in 10,000 BBY. Blah Blah Blah, going on trip, blah blah blah, need someone to control my character, blah blah blah, I'd appreciate if someone did, same rules as always, no killing, no betraying, and no maiming))


Vader's wife was very pregnant when she died 19 years ago. All of a sudden a 19 year old who is very strong in the force and has a distinct resembalance to him in his younger days rolls in from Vader's home planet with his old Master Obi-Wan (Who was the ONLY other person preset at the time his wife died. And to boot, the kid's last name is Skywalker.

So in answer to your question, he knew Luke was his son because his name is Darth Vader, and not Darth Retard.

*Gilian jerks Rwos away from Deac* What are you doing to him?

*Rwos opens his eyes. Gilian, startled, drops him, then hastily apologizes. Rwos rubs his head*

Rwos: Thanks, Deac.

Gilian: What just happened? How are you...

Rwos: Alive? The demon underestimated me. He didn't realize I had a regenerative ability...

Gilian: What the hell was that? That wasn't K'Warra K'laar, was it?

Rwos: Not exactly. His body was being mentally influenced by that demon.

Gilian: Well...what did he want?

Rwos: I can't tell you.

Gilian: Dammit Rwos, I swear---

Starr: I hate to interrupt, but...WHERE IS LORD CRACKEN?

((*Fused Irvine becomes translucent* XD

Yeah, I only use 'twined' voice cus it sounds the best proper way to explain it. like when he speaks, you hear the younger WH Irvine's voice and Elder WH Irvine's voice. just to make him seem more creepy))

Fused Irvine: *twined voice (again)* "Tisk, tisk. And to think we are more powerful then him..."

*Irvine grits his teeth.*

Fused Irvine: "Tell me, when you see a reflection of yourself, and your not standing in front of a reflectant surface, you can't help but feel the strongest anger and jeliously for almost no appearent reason?" *Laughs*

*Irvine remains silent.*

((My point stands, Flax wouldn't jump.))

*Flax' comlink double beeps.*

Flax: This is General Flax.

Com: This is Senator Tar Redis. Your taking too long General, in exactly 24 hours we will utalize plan C4.

*Flax' face turns ashern.*

Flax: Sir you can't.....

Redis: Too late General, remove all your personnal in 24 hours. After that the Destroyer Rellentless will fire her warheads.

*The com clicks off and Flax, visibly shunken, turns to the group.*

Flax: The Senate has just autherized the use of dessisive force, if every last Vampire is not destroyed within 24 hours then they will launch Stronium90 Clad Thurmonuclear Airbursts. The planet will be totally un-inhabitable.

Fused Irvine: *looks at deac* "Foolish really... Do you not sense our power, now at a more fuller potential? Our previous incarnation was looking for an honorable fight, so he subconsiously left himself weaker then what he should have been, thus we amerged."

*He unwraps the bloody bandage on his right forearm, revealing the arm, completely healed.*

Fused Irvine: "You're no match for us now. All of you..."


((Okay, here's my logic: Usualy the Hero's of a story would be put up agenst impossible odds agenst a single powerful foe.

So why not allow the same circumstance, but have more then one foe agenst the group, with no care about which group of foes cares about the other, only that they have a 'turn' to 'play with' the weaklings. ))

Quote:

If you hadn't put that I would never have said he was hit in midair, as that would certainly be godmoding ;p

edit: Eep. Admiral said it already. Oops ^^;;

Scar: I don't think it fits in the RPG at the moment, if that's what you're asking.))



Coruscant

*Unfortunately no one replies to Kalidor, as they are wrapped up in their own argument.

Starr almost replies to Fused Irvine, then chooses to ignore him as well*


Gilian: *enraged, to Flax* You bastard, what have you told them?

Rwos: *sigh* I'll handle them. Starr, come with me. *as Starr balks at the order* If Cracken vanished here odds are we need this place intact to find him again. I suspect I know what may be happening to him. *turning* Gilian, you go after the books. Ignore the vampires if you can, just do whatever you can to unblock the sun before the spell gets too strong to handle.

Gilian: Ignore the vampires?

Rwos: They're a distraction. For something I suspect we'll become aware of very soon. That much I learned from K'Warra's thoughts. The books the vampire used to blot out the sun were planted in Coruscant's library by the demon - Sejhan. What's puzzling however is how he knew the vampires would find them...

*to Deac* You can either go with Gilian to find the books, or with me to disable the Relentless. *to Gilian* Let the others come with you if they wish. You may run into problems you don't expect.

*To Flax* Tell me how I can get to the Destroyer Relentless.

-----------

White

Girl: You need to cool down your arrogance. Your chaotic side is becoming too pronounced and it will destroy you if you let it grow. *She circles Cracken* Your powers are growing more rapidly than I expected. That's very good. *continues circling* But I told you, the time isn't right for you to interfere. Certain things must be. The people you almost destroyed when you let your emotions control you... Well, one of those certain things is that they must live, for now. I told you you would not be able to stop what would come - why didn't you listen to me?


Edited to specify which Irvine Starr was ignoring

*Over a com to the Disen*

Hildr: It is agreed then. I'll speak with you shortly.

*Hildr exits the fighter and slips into the library. She deftly enters the room where the group is.*

Hildr: I doubt he will help you at all, or if he does you still will be to late to stop them. I'm willing to beat that the General always wanted to destroy the planet. Think about it. They haven't even tried the simplest measures like a quartine. He immediatly ordered a futile evacuation, and then argued with everyone about staying and fighting.

I doubt that he even cares about the millions that will be slaughtered in the attack. At the very least he is the Republic's perfect scapgoat. The public outcry at this massacure, will be strong, and the Republic to save it's own hide will put the blame squarely on General Flax. Who knows Flax may even be doing this as an elaborate ploy so he can forment rebellion and become the next Emperor.

*Turning to Gilian*

Do as Rwos says, vampires have already left the planet.

*Turning to Rwos*

You have done well Blade. As such I can offer you a kind of reward. We can provide you transport to the Destroyer....

Flax: You said yourself that a quarantine won't work. We have 24 hours to sort the sun-block. If you can do that I think I might be able to buy you some time. Look, the Senate Defence Commity gave me a deadline, then they would consider "alternatives." The deadline is in 72 hours, not 24. Evidently they have no faith in our ability to control this situation.

Looking at our track record I can't really blame them.

Rwos, you can't get to the Relentless, she's automated and sealed, any breach of the hull will set the launchers off and we'll all be so many ionized particals. She's our new kill-all and she was supposed to be unvailed to the Galaxey in a few days time. Not to mention she's cloaked.

((BD: When did the republic begin using cloaking devices so much. I do hope you realize that they wouldn't have solved the problems with them...

I also hope you realize the consquences of what you done.))

Hildr: The Republic has finally become no better then Palpatines Empire. Creating a ship who's only purpose is to destroy planets, automated no less so Flax doesn't have to worry about anyone with a morals do stop such a launch. Who knows maybe Flax here wants to become the next Emperor.

Make note that He doesn't even try to stop this, and admits that he knew about this beforehand.

Fine, we won't board the ship, we will just destroy it before it can launch. You have no idea what we can do, I promise you this, you won't be able to destroy the planet...

Fused Irvine: *walking into teh centre of the group* "How interesting... Not only do you all not even attempt to find any traces of a trail from where that vampire eluded you, but you also won't investigate to find reasons why those people were here just now. At least in more detail..."

Irvine: "Why don't you shut up..."

((OOS: Um, Fused Irvine is making almost no sense at all Scar))

Coruscant

*Rwos silently wonders if this was the reason the existence of NRI's interdimensional branch had been hidden from Flax' department*

Gilian: *in a parting shot at Flax* Weren't you boasting that you could make a star go nova, yet you won't stop this weapon from killing us all? So much for the power of a "Jedi".

Starr: *to Fused Irvine* Shut up or I'll take your head off. *to Flax* What you are trying to tell us is a load of lies. The Senate commitees are a pack of cowards. They would never accept this unless someone manipulated them into doing so. Someone like you. After all, our spies have told us that you were the one handling this "vampire problem". Only you or your lackeys through you could have given the Senate the false impression that the threat was so terrible that the capital city of the galaxy would have to be leveled to contain it...

*Rwos speaks up* I'm sure Flax has no plans on becoming the next Emperor. *looking at Flax* I'm also sure he knows who holds the proper codes to deactivate this superweapon...or perhaps can put us in contact with the architects, who surely would know how to disable it...

*Gilian looks disgusted* You're wasting your time, Termand. *She turns to Deac and the others* Follow me. I'm calling my glider. We don't have time for this.


----------

Whiteness

*The girl smiles at Cracken's comment* In time you'll know. Until then...

*The white around Cracken seems to take form. Then, it rapidly "melts" through and over him, from the inside out. The room obscures in blank white.

The only thing still there was Alys' mental signature, still out of reach but somehow seeming slightly stronger...*

----------

Somewhere in Warp Space

*Farran, Artemis, and Kioet are seated at a small but ornate table in a nicely furnished room. Despite the few fancy touches the room still read as made for business. Several suited men brought refreshments for the group. Farran recognized the ones brought to him as being from Earth, delicacies. It disturbed him that he couldn't remember the names.*

Artemis: We've been here a while...when is the woman coming to see us?

Farran: I'm not sure I want to know what this is about. *He looks warningly at Artemis* Appearances mean nothing in these cases, remember that.

Artemis: I can't for the life of me figure out who these people are. But they're clearly from Earth. And rich.

Farran: Indeed they are...

*Farran stares at Kioet, sizing him up. The people who had escorted them in had been only to happy to let him accompany them. No, in fact they had insisted on it.

Which was puzzling. Clearly they were playing on the fact that he and Artemis were from Earth. They knew exactly who he really was and they probably knew who Artemis was too. Certainly they wanted to exploit this.

Which begged the question. Why bother pampering the Trandoshan? Someone who must appear as native muscle picked up for hire?

Farran keeps staring*

Kioet...what do they know about you that I don't?

((Do insane individuals ever do, red?))

*Fused Irvine bursts out laughing at Starr.*

Fused Irvine: "You're such a pathetic creature, all of you! HA! I'll leave you to your business. Oh and by the way kid..." *Turns to Irvine.* "You can stop hiding the fact you are wounded,..." *Smiles* "I can sense it in your anger, it comes from desparation..."

Irvine: "What!? Argh..."

*Irvine gives up hiding that he's wounded internally, as he grits his teeth and semi closes an eye. He charges Fused Irvine, while igniting his saber. But at the last second, Fused Irvine jumps up, and seemingly vanishes, only with the echo of laughter...

Irvine falls to a knee, while extinishing his saber.*

Irvine: "Starr... I accidently closed my wound, without expelling the bolt... It'll hurt me more if it is forced out..."

Starr: You fool. Why did you do that? The bolt is too long, it'll work its way through your internal organs and kill you if you leave it where it is. Didn't anyone train you in...never mind. *He closes his eyes, stretching out with the Force* It needs to be removed. Then you can use one of those healing trances you Jedi like so much.

Irvine: "Come on, give me a break. I wasn't thinking at the time, like father like son I guess..." *smiles* "But like I said, it'll hurt me even more if it's forced out now... I believe it being done surgically would be alot better, besides it won't kill me yet..." 'I guess I'm just as stubborn as my father...'

*Irvine consentrates, and then stands up with little difficulty, keeping his mind on the bolt's position, he pulls out his remote and presses a button for the cargo ramp to open on his ship.*

Irvine: "I have medical suppies on my ship, it'll help me. Although I'm sure one of those star destoriers wouldn't take someone openly calling himself a close relitive to the Emperior..."

[Um...a few problems, BD. One: Cloaking devices are extremely hard to find and make. The planet that produces the crystals is gone. Two, the use of such a ship is majorly out of character for the NR, and locking it down is stupid. What if someone got the codes?]

*Deac waits for the glider to land and turns to Flax*

Deac: If that thing's not out of commission when this is over, I'm resigning. I can't believe something like that would be built.

Flax: Look, I didn't create this thing. I'm not even NRI. I'm attached to Fleet intelligance. There's nothing actually revolutionary about the ship. The cloak is an older model than I am. However, It does have a weakness. The cloak is one way. However, the one way is only about 97% effective. If you use a wide beam scan with a strong enough power output you should be able to locate the ship.

Its a modified version of the Old Republic's Stygium Crystal cloak.

((OSS: Just because the Planet is gone doesn't mean all the crystals are. I don't know! I didn't design the thing! ))

*Turns to Hidlr.* You know I have nothing to do with this, yet you still perpetuate lies.

Flax: There's a way to stop the thing. You have to wind its internal cloak foward until after it has fired. That will fool the ship into shutting down.

((OOS: I have to agree with Deac, BD, using something like this is extremely out of character for the NR. I hope there's an explanation in the offing...

Also the Old Republic didn't use the cloak, Darth Maul did...))



Gilian: *powering up her glider and its disks* You pretend to have had nothing to do with this yet everything you say says differently. You know everything about this weapon yet you didn't bother doing anything to stop it? I know your kind. You're all about power, and as long as you can get it the consequences be damned. And don't pretend this is a surprise. I've got vamp hearing, remember? I heard that entire conversation you had over your comlink. You told us had information that wasn't in that conversation - like that the Senate would consider alternatives if we unblocked the sun - either you were lying or you knew about this all along.

Starr: Stygium crystal invisibility cloaks have been used by the Sith for a long time. If the Republic is supposed to be so squeaky clean I would be interested to know how exactly you acquired this technology...

((I'm going to assume that Irvine is being helped by starr))

Irvine: *talking only loud enough for Starr to hear.* "I suppose only my people were the only true new order that came out of the Civil War... I don't care if that vampire can hear me, but maybe if there was a more deeper investigation on the 'quote, unquote' New Order and the senate, maybe there can be something that could be dug up. There has to be some darkness in that order, it only makes sense, it goes all the way back to my friend's alledged death turned willful interrigation several weeks ago."

Hildr: Please General, you expect us to believe your plan. Unless the Republic has the most inept programmers in the universe, it would fail. You advance time and you make the ship launch sooner, not stop the launch. If anything you would want to rewind the clock and put it in a loop so it never reaches zero. Then again to have such a huge weakness as that makes me think once again your lieing.

Then again it is a brillant plan, if you think about it. We advance time making the ship launch it's missiles sooner so we are blamed for Coruscants Descruction. Flax is hailed as a hero for trying to save as many lives as possible. Further he then with his mysterous knowledge of the ship finds it and captures it. Then he finds the sith cloaking device. This implicates the Empire allowing him to complete his conquest of imperial space. I would also add, that it is possible that we are also hailed as hero for trying to stop the "Imperial" ship. However, we of course conviently die in the attempt. This way everyone with knowledge of the his involvment in the event is silenced.

I guess this would be a good enough time to say, that the media will eventually find out about the Republic's planet killer. Finally if anything happens to me, or if the planet is destroyed then the media will also recieve information that will show Flax's involvment in the entire incident. *Smiling*

*Kioet grabs the fanciest-looking bottle, opens it and pours himself a glass*

Kioet: This better be poisoned.

*Kioet picks the glass off the table and drinks*

Kioet: a little strong...

*Kioet pours himself another*

Kioet: ...but not strong enough.


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

*Deac turns to Flax, his face fallen, and holding firmly onto his NRI insignia*

Deac: Tell me,... sir, ....my friend, tell me what they're saying is false. Tell me it's a lie.

On second thoughts, screw this ship. We get the spell books now and that ship won't be firing. We can deal with this later.

((Redwing, you are mistaken. Stygium crystal cloaks were widly known about during the OR era. There's even an artical on the holonet about the crystals starting to run out.))

Flax: We advance time to after the launch, that way the ship thinks its already fired. So it shuts down and de-cloaks. It would work. We'll never find a slicer in time though. So that leaves only one option.

*Turns to Deac.* Colonel, I was never here, I never told you this and you had no involvement in what I am about to do.

I really thought you all had more faith in me.

*Flax activates his comlink again.*

Flax: Bring her in Chip.

*3 minutes later.*

*Flax' X-Wing lands, he runs towards it and chages into his flight gear then climbs in, he looks back at the group.*

Flax: Its best you never saw me, I've towed the line too long, now thing are going to change.

((Yes this is highly out of character for the NR. Thats all I'm saying. Just no-one else come up with another plotline, okay.))

((I didn't say they were unknown. I said the Old Republic did not use them, which is a little inaccuracte - I should say it was Sienar technology. We all know what that means.

From http://www.starwars.com/databank/sta...trator/eu.html :

Quote:
The Sith Infiltrator is equipped with a terrifying technological wonder -- a full-effect cloaking device that gives invisibility upon command. An invisibility field is a formidable weapon, since it can defeat most security systems and make acts of theft, sabotage, and assassination all but unstoppable.
From http://www1.theforce.net/CUSWE/categ...lifier=&no=100 :

Quote:
Stygium
this rare, crystalline mineral is found only on Aeten II. Sienar Advanced Projects discovered that the crystal could be used to create a full-effect cloaking system that defeated the sensors and security systems of larger craft

this does indicate that they were well-known. However, still Imperial technology. Thus what Starr and Hildr says still stands...it isn't Old Republic technology it is Sienar technology. From Starr's point of view only someone with Sith connections could have found any after this long.

edit: Okay, I don't think that's clear enough...I'm not saying the NR *couldn't* have found an old cloaking device. I'm just saying that it's valid to say it looks suspicious. Not that a planet killer doesn't look suspicious enough))




Rwos: *As Flax leaves* Hopefully we can believe him. *to Hildr* I think I want to take you up on that offer anyway, though...

Gilian: *distastefully* Interesting about-face. I'd trust that man about as far as I could throw him...no, scratch that, I could probably throw him pretty far. *to the others* I'm not sure where we'll be going, but here is a rough idea. *She twists open a watch-like device she is wearing, and connects it with her glider's console with a wire. A 3-D map projects on the ground, a minature representation of Coruscant's surface. Intermitten blue symbols appear on the map in seemingly random places*

Gilian: The vampire is using a mystical power to teleport. The books left a trail. *The symbols connect themselves with blue lines in a wild zig-zag pattern* Since he's a vampire he can't enter the abode of a living being without being invited in. Not even through teleportation. The erratic pattern is because he was teleporting around the homes. *She points to the ending symbol* This is where we go.

Starr: *to Irvine* Only new order? What are you talking about? You're talking nonsense...also, darkness in the New Order? You have no idea.
