Return to Space or The Crash Pt. 8

A large Erdaz roared in pain and collapsed onto the ground. The strange amalgamation of muscles gripped in their death throes. A giant boulder had landed on the creature’s neck, breaking it in twain. Dozens of soldiers rushed away from the impact zone. In death an Erdaz began to slowly release all of the life force it had absorbed so sometimes soldiers who had been wounded would have their wounds closed as the Erdaz died, but if you were caught under the falling Erdaz there was no saving you.

Kemp slowly approached Amir, smiling wearily. “Well, friend. That’s one more down.” His smile became a grimace, “the casualties were high this time. We lost several dozen veterans.” Continue reading

Darth Teslief Pt. 4

On an unknown world in wild space:

“The world ship is discovered. Give the order to attack. The ship must not be recorded.”

“Very well. I’ll send the order myself.”

– – –

“Ah, here they are.” Grant Klev held a spiral bound stack of flimsi in his hand. “Found them, Darci!”

“No need to yell, I’m right here.”

“Sorry, I need to get this back up to the bridge as quickly as I can. I’ll see you later.” He patted the dark brown bothan on the shoulder as he hobbled quickly towards the turbolift. “Can you clean that up for me? I’m in a bit of a hurry.” Continue reading

Rasaz, a Species in the Skye Born Universe

The rasaz hail from the mostly-molten planet Rasazakina. They live on the southern pole where the planet has most of its solid landmass. Experts are unsure as to why exactly so much of the surface has refused to cool and harden.

Ape-like in appearance the rasaz usually have red-hued fur and are around eight feet tall. Unlike earth gorillas their chests are covered with fur. They are slow for their size; at walking speed a human can easily keep up with a walking rasaz. Their arms are strong enough to rip the arms off almost any other species in the galaxy, but the rasaz that does this is considered to have gone mad. The female of the species is slightly larger and stronger. Xenologers have stated this evolved in the ancient past when the males would be required to defeat a rasaz female in order to mate with them.

While they are mostly pacifists many species still think of them as hostile and reckless. There are many rasaz who act as mercenaries and bounty hunters, ruining the reputation of the species as a whole.

One famous rasaz was given a honor medal for saving the lives of fifty children by holding up the broken support beam at the center of a mixed-species daycare for an hour. Unfortunately the medal was awarded posthumously because the rest of the building collapsed before she could be saved.

Terra Incognita – Chapter 0

Marcus and Ayla were Warlockes on the run from the inquisition. Their son, Sorley, was also a Warlocke but the inquisition had no information on him. The family had moved into the wilderness to keep themselves hidden.

On Sorley’s eleventh birthday, in February, he and his father went on a cold and snowy trapping run. They were looping back around on the back end of the trapping line when they found their only catch of the day. Continue reading

Darth Teslief Pt. 3

Getting pulled out of hyperspace prematurely was a feeling not many had felt. Usually this happened when calculations were off and the ship detected a stellar object in the way. Usually this ended in the destruction of the ship and the death of the crew so there were very few who could describe the sensation. This particular pull from hyperspace was unique. There was no large stellar object in the way, but rather an organic mass that was expelling much larger gravity waves than it could possibly generate naturally. Continue reading
