As Ao meditated the ship continued through hyperspace. T8-T3 kept watch on the computers to warn when hyperspace exit was eminent. Lousro was in the same room as Ao, causing distractions and trying to break his concentration. Continue reading
Bolting throughout the house Sorley and Ember collected everything they had for hunting trips. Marcus’ hunting pack was larger so he insisted Sorley take it.
“But dad, you and mom need supplies too, even if you aren’t going with me!”
“The inquisitors will be here soon. Stop arguing and get moving!” Marcus shoved a few items into the pack then pushed a bundle into Sorley’s arms. “Ember, you’d better let Ayla strap your pack to you. We don’t have much time.”
Ember let Ayla tighten down the straps then scurried onto Sorley’s pack. “Don’t portals stay open for days? How are you going to defend it?”
“We have a plan, now go!” Continue reading
Seveth circled the strange human-like creatures, moving clockwise around them. Her cat-like eyes So, lightsabers work, but the armor almost looked like it resisted your blades, Teslief.
Evran looked towards the ship as he shot back towards the hull. For a moment the creatures flickered out of his sight and when they returned one of them had launched off the hull directly at him. Kriff kriff kriff!
Teslief was about to answer Seveth when one of the creatures shot up off the hull towards Evran who was shaking his head like he was trying to clear his eyes if he had any. Then he cursed over the mental link as the creature wrapped its arms around him. Kill the three on the hull first then go for Evran. He has his ways.
Gripping his guard shoto and moving swiftly along the hull Greel brought his weapon up to slice the gun in the closest creature’s hand. To his surprise the weapon resisted and the weapon changed shape as the creature flicked its wrist, becoming a vibrating blade that resembled a machete. In his frustration Greel shot Force Lightning at the creature, causing it to drop its weapon and take a significant amount of damage.
The creature retrieved its weapon and slashed at Greel. A snarl was clearly visible through its membranous visor. As the weapon connected it bit into Greel’s leg but got stuck in a suit joint and once again left the creature’s hand. Instead of picking it back up the creature pulled a staff from its back and readied it.
Apparently Force Lightning can affect these things.
The creature in front of Teslief charged at here, a saw-like creature in its hands where she could have sworn it was just holding a rifle. The creature swung at her with what seemed to be all its might, but Teslief easily blocked with her double sabers and returned the attack. As she did so, however one of her lightsabers dropped from her grip and the creature’s weapon seemed to float away as well.
Being distracted by her saber floating away Teslief forewent the attack in order to retrieve her weapon.
Seveth took a few steps forward and attempted to bind her opponent in place. She was hoping that if they were affected by Force Lightning that she might be able to catch purchase on them. Unfortunately she couldn’t, but thinking fast she pulled a coil of cable out of the side of her suit and tried to use that to bind it. The anger coursing through her caused the cable to cut right through the creature’s neck, outright killing it.
Dropping Battle Meditation Evran pulled one of the Impaler’s spikes from the hull and smashed it into the creature holding onto him, dealing damage and knocking it loose. Unfortunately he also hit himself with some damage but was able to magnetize back to the hull. He quickly reinitiated Battle Meditation and turned to face his opponent again. Unfortunately this time they would need to use their comms as he was too shaken to initiate telepathy as part of his power.
Dagobah is a place filled with the living Force. Trying to reach a new level of insight into the workings of the Force Lousro travels there to study. As he leaves the battle around Dantooine one of the Republic cruisers watching from the edge hails him.
Sighing, Lousro returns the hail. His toydarian wings fluttering at the annoyance. “This is Cowardly Lion. How may I help you?”
“This is Master Alkroot. I’d like to talk to you on behalf of the council if I may. I’ve tagged the hanger on your scanner.”
“Very well. Lousro out.” He shut off the comm and turned to T8-T3. “Tate, take us in to the tagged hanger.” Continue reading
Marcus and Ayla were rustling through the house gathering all of their belongings and spell components into the cart. Ember and Sorley were setting up a long-term invisibility spell on the cart and themselves when they heard the sound of thunder. They looked up and saw dark stormclouds in the distance moving towards the house.
“Dad, a storm is coming!” Sorley pushed the cart in through the front door.
“Shast. Here, let me help you.” Marcus started pulling the cart too, then turned his head to yell into the house. “Ayla! We’re gonna need plan b!” Continue reading
As Teslief advanced through the fire of biological slugthrowers she was able to get a better read on the strange creatures in front of her. She turned on her helmet cam and sent the feed over her comm channel. “I’m sending you my live footage now.”
“I’ll patch it to Grant.”
“And send the acolytes instead of the elites. The ones that can enhance themselves.”
“Are they Force sensitive?”
“Just the opposite.” Teslief sighed with annoyance. “They don’t have a Force presence. I can’t even push them out here, there’s no air pressure to work with.” Teslief paused as she intercepted a projectile. “Just get them out here ASAP.” Continue reading
[The eradication of the Erdaz has completed. The Kindness and The Jester meet up on a small planet near to Nevre.]
“Jester,” Simisola began, “I feel that before we took to the stars things were more simple.”
The Jester walked two alcoholic beverages to the table and set them down. “Well, perhaps it was, but I find it more exciting this way.” He leaned back and took a long pull of his beverage. “Sometimes I miss knowing every important person, but the urge to find someone newly important, someone new. That is more exhilarating than knowing who’s next well in advance.”
Simisola downed half of her drink. “The way this galaxy is, there isn’t a lot of kindness around. I get to shine an even brighter light on a person’s day in comparison to the darkness, but it gets me down sometimes. Like my purpose on that front is fruitless and unachievable.” Continue reading
