  1. Chiming in. I agree with what Robbie Said. Overall, I think the guides were a complete failure in almost every respect. The only thing that was useful was the force power list. If it were to be remade, I'd suggest the following: -Make it a neutral guide, with a codex of powers. If the powers MUST be divided, make them in schools of thought rather than classes. Explain why the light powers are light and the dark are dark, give only basic applications and lend the rest to user creativity. Maybe maintain a curve on what's Easy and what's Impossible with a given skill. -Completely forget about classes -There ought to be a section on what being a good Master for a padawan/apprentice should mean. I imagine it'd be more story oriented, setting up some goals and little plot arc to transition you from noob to Quality Writer. Less "Lift this rock" more "Write an interesting story" -Leave most major details about how things should be organized/ran to whoever is in charge of a given faction.
  2. "If you want to save him, you need only bring him with you..." The words rang in Ulan's ear as a distant memory what had transpired. His recollection of the time after passing through the beast's jaws was gone. In his green, ooze coated claw he clutched the hood of a shallowly breathing Gavin.Though he miraculously bore no mark of the struggle, the echoing pangs of an all too real dismemberment would haunt Jedi Knight. Amidst a crater full of flaming robot parts, what was once the Sith's ship now lay decapitated and scattered across a Bespin City Block. The reunited apprentice and master found themselves in a pool at the center of the impact, just too sticky with the putrid ichor to be on fire. Kakuto was gone. The Cloud City Management, aware that the carbonite reactor was soon to blow, detached lower blocks of the city to mitigate the collateral. Among the city lost in the sky that day was the last known location of Sith Master. It is unknown whether or not Kakuto Ryu was able to escape the drop into the clouds. He is presumed lost in the groundless skies of Bespin.

  4. You may not post another characters actions, and reflexively tou may not assume another character's inactivity. Likewise, you may not post OOC posts, even to correct somebody. Send them a PM, or send me one. You may post attacking somebody, but it's up to them to post taking damage, being hit, etc. You will not take the "liberty" of posting somebody's defense, even if they keep posting without you. Just bear in mind that just because your character gets posted ahead of, doesn't mean you can't post what happened in the time after your last post. I will now Purge this thread of that which is unclean.
  5. Wait, how'd you do that? Some sort of slow acting Christmas magic?
  6. Say we create threads in the databank for faction registration. What information about a faction would you like to be able to look up? What do you think would be fair to ask a faction to post? What kinds of things do you think you might wanna post about a faction for fun? I've got ideas, but I'd like to hear what you have to say. Have at it.
  7. OOC Note: The chronology on this is a bit askew, bits are thrown about everywhere, but the only thing that's important is that everyone is The Streets of Bespin Waves of blaster fire washed the mech as it besieged the Streets of Bespin, the commander's speeder backpedaling to stay out of the beast's way. A cigarra spike clenched sharply between his teeth, he yelled at the visibly quaking driver in the seat next to him. ”œDear Woden Man, don't stop now! This is robot county!”
  8. Lord Furion is absent until further notice. Evidently, he moved out of his old apartment and no longer has internet, and thus will not be posting for a while. I have no Idea when he'll be back but from what I've gathered he *will* be back eventually.
  9. I'm ruling this as a 3 combatant, 2 post duel, rather than a killshot. Slicer: I don't think really anyone is confused or scared or unbalanced by a lightsaber changing color. Your illusions are over-the-top--The key is subtlety. Try to make your illusions more simple and seamless with what you're doing, rather than having a huge facade. DMD: Great show. Enjoyable posts. Lucifier: Run-on sentences. That's all I'm going to say. Divide up you ideas more, the period key is your friend. Winners: Darth Mortis Diabolus, and to a lesser extent Darth Lucifer.
  10. I am currently deliberating on this ruling. It's become exceedingly complicated because of over-posing. Killshots are meant to work as a single post per player, as entailed in this previous ruling. http://forums.jedi.net/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=28519&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=75 I'll have your ruling up soon.
  11. The Jaws of Uriel As Ulan slipped between the golden plates he was met with a thick blue ooze washing over him in waves and pulling him into the belly of the beast with an unseen current. In the blades of light that pierced through the gaps in the ever darkening mouth the shadows of free floating teeth loomed. The plates surrounded and overwhelmed Ulan, his lightsaber malfunctioning as they formed a cocoon around him, squeezing the air from his lungs and replacing it with the the cold blue fluid. The taste and smell of blood overwhelmed his senses. The interlocking teeth of slid shut as as the final plate fell into place, leaving the padawan to drown alone in total darkness. Beneath the Carbonite Regulator Core The delicate floating array ceased its battery as the wave of Carbonite interrupted its rotation and disrupted the careful balance of the parts. Stray arcs of energy erupted from the mass as he strained to preserve its cohesion. Though the arm itself was immune to Darex's blade, the interference of the magnetic field caused it to bind suddenly, pieces expoding off and disappearing into the carbonite flow. A half formed hand appeared in the maw, grinding as the mangled wreckage failed to fold back into the intricate form of his arm. Instead what emerged from the carbonite was a a three fingered claw, shuttering and thrashing with loose ends, the ruby amulet shining brightly through the gaps. "You are Mistaken, Darex." Kakuto's crimson saber emerged from his palm to match the pearl saber in a two bladed stance as he stared down his enemies. He had never seen Darla give into the dark side, and after so long trying to drive her to her breaking point he reveled in the opportunity. His victory was in grasp, he would capture her and make an apprentice of her or he would die trying. There would never be another chance like this. "I'm far from done with you." He charged at Darex with his blades raised, letting loose a flurry of slashes at his neck. He wanted to Darex to die quickly so that he could claim his prize. The Impact Site Police and rescue workers began to swarm around the impact site, blocking off the streets and trying to pull survivors from damaged buildings before they collapsed. Speeders with heavy laser cannons rolled up on the billowing smoke cloud, a palpable sense of dread lording over the dutiful guardians. Attempts to contact with Gavin's vessel failed, the communications array disabled. A wing of cloud cars slid into the street row in line to make a pass over, hoping to get a better look at what had happened. As they came close two volleys of red laser fire erupted from behind a curtain of smoke, swatting down a pair of cars and sending them careening toward the police perimeter. A single pilot floated gracefully away on a parachute, caught in the updraft of the burning building, struggling not to be capsized or sent beyond the outer edge of the city. The gargantuan white mech's glowing red eyes peered through the smoke before it emerged, heaving Gavin's ship at mass of speeders before the twin laser canons on its shoulders lit it up. The creature's terrible wings extended as it slowly trod into view, one slashing through the remainder of a building and causing it to collapse and fill the streets with waves of flaming debris. In the Maw of Madness Suddenly a sensation unlike anything he had previously imagined rumbled within Ulan. It was a sound like a voice roaring from inside Ulan's body, vibrating every fiber of his being with sense of overwhelming malice. Lights began to dance around Ulan, flashing in tone with the inescapable menace, growing gradually more intricate until it became apparent that not only was Ulan able to see all of cloud city in the breadth of a single gaze, but that he could see inside of solid matter, people and buildings. And yet, his own identity became harder and harder to recall as his thoughts became drowned out by the extra-dimensional bombardment. His nerves began to tingle with life, sensations caused not by his own body, but the body of a creature he was gradually being drawn into.The self awareness and lucidity began to return to Ulan, but marked with sharp sense of helplessness. The body of the fifty-five foot monster was in fact his own, but at the same time it wasn't, as he had no control over its actions. Waves of lasers began to erupt from the Bespin Security officers to glance off its great armored shell as the huge metal feet paced slowly forward.
  12. Clash's move seemed a little better grounded. I dunno, I had a hard time comprehending why Marco' needed to throw away his weapons. It's not a strategically sound move, and you could probably break ceiling tiles with just gunfire. It seemed like a rather difficult move where shooting at him would have been just as, if not more, effective. <>
  13. OCC Notes: This post is broken into parts specific to each group of the fight. For the purpose of more interesting exposition, the timeline may overlap or skip around between scenes. Because you're all split up it's easier for me to split the story into parts based on each of your experiences. Also, please forgive me for the time it took me to write this post. There aren't enough words for explosion in the English language to accommodate a perfect KR post. I may have to explore German. As you can see, this post was exceptionally long, but challenges every character separately for once. Let me know if this was worth the wait The Streets of Bespin, Gavin's Landing Pad A sense of dread drowned the streets of Bespin in silence. The attacks had made the small, vulnerable community uneasy. Though their threat was only a single Sith, they were usually omens of worse fate to come. The crushing realization of the situation's gravity had not long to stew in the Conscious padawan's mind when when his perceived safety would be threatened once more. A strong, foul disturbance in the force radiated from below them, the alien's large ears ringing with a stirring reminder of what had taken place. "THERE' S NO ESCAPE!" An emergency broadcast from Bespin Air Traffic Control arrived in the cockpit. A series of alarms from the flight computer interrupted the liftoff procedure, cloudcars roaring just overhead. "Comm: Bespin Air traffic Control to All Ships... Be Advised... Large Unidentified Vessel on Collision Course with the City coming in off South Face..." The comm trailed off into some coordinates, and the takeoff process resumed. The was comm was downed out Ulan's ears by the soothing rumble of the engines. The flight computer started whirring again as with an alert from the rear sensors. The Cloudcars had vanished. Air Raid Sirens blared, scattering the sparse crowds from the surface of Bespin. "...Target is hostile, repeat, target is hostile..." The Bowels of the Carbonite Regulator A barely audible laughter preceded the warrior's erratic approach. "You don't Understand, Darla." He swept low with his saber, charging in to sweep the saber between his arm and his blade. The impact pulled he hilt opposite of her block, sending the blade fly wildly through the air and embed in a durasteel column. Her guard down, Kakuto raised his arm to batter her face, the steel joints quivering with hesitation. His attack stopped short. "You are not the one who tried to Escape me..." The back of his hand glanced her cheek, his unfeeling fingers alive and warm with electricity. Near the Cold Carbonite Regulator Core "Darex's confidence has Betrayed him. He has Split himself between the two people he has come to protect, leaving him in a position to defend Neither." A loud bang followed a shudder in the facility, a small vibration as though from a building collapse. Black smoke and debris poured from the open door at the peek of the elevator shaft. The rope they'd used to overcome the lift fell past Darex, an end still on fire. The force revealed something far more sinister than the explosion could even portray, however. Eclipsing Gavin And Ulan was a tremendous shadow, something large like a ship, with the vulgar vibrations of an engine, but strangely... alive. The Streets of Bespin, Gavin's ship "For you see, they will find the surface to be FAR from the Safety they had anticipated." An impact to the ship interrupted the power, the horrendous crash turning the bay to darkness. Ulan was thrown from his bed, the IV ripped from his flesh as he was thrashed around the ship. The sensors went berserk, controls unresponsive--the ship flipped through the air, the view from the cockpit pointing skyward. The clouds zoomed by for one peaceful moment before the ship was pushed through the wall of a building, thrashing the pilot without destroying the cockpit entirely. The Darkness of the thrashing med bay broke with a flash of light, an enormous vibroblade of glittering sunlit corusca gems blazing a line through the floor, before twisting and disappearing from whence it came. Eight gargantuan robotic fingers slipped through the hull breach like the legs of a spider, spreading out pry open the ship like tin can. What lie beyond looked like a war droid, but moved like a creature--something fierce and savage. Its huge robotic face peered in through the fissure. Lunging forward, its massive steel jaws unhinged to reveal an oozing blue maw of razor sharp gold plates, from whence came the psychic roar of a creature from regions beyond imagination. Its cheeks caught on the narrow opening, the steel beak of the abomination falling just short of the tiny alien. The Bowels of the Carbonite Regulator His thumb forced down on her windpipe, his fingers wrapped firmly around her neck. His head was hanging low, the blood caked platinum hair obscuring his face. "And as for Why?" Kakuto lifted Darla from her feet, her neck cracking loudly. "I wish to Break that which you hold dear. I want to Drive you to the Darkest parts of you mind and watch you Suffer there." He lifted his gaze up to Darla. His neck was tense, and his eyes wild with a mix of contempt and misery. His teeth were clenched, bits of his blood leaking from the corners of his mouth as he spoke. "So why, Darla," Kakuto took a few heavy paces and slammed her against a vertical pipe. His fingers breached the pipe, carbonite pouring through to flash freeze his lock on her closed. He loosened the grip slightly to let the air into her lungs. "Would you still fear for my life, when it is theirs that may yet be saved?" The Sith reared back as though he were going to release Darla, but as paced back his shoulder merely grew farther from his palm, the mechanical arm pulling apart. The red amulet shimmered with electricity, the loose pieces and floating rings that comprised the device swirling around it. Flashes of lightning began to arc between the parts and the ruby, sending shocks running through Darla's body. The three cylinders in his shoulder erupted, each filled with a copper rich blood, swirling in a magnetic turbine to channeled the force lightning through the alchemic circuitry of the device. A visible halo of charged blue ions hung in the air just above the force dynamos. The energy he produced went through the amulet, which animated the parts on magnetism alone. Spread apart, the loose pieces of his arm acted a massive array to project lightning to a focal point in between his fingers--where he held Darla fast. The only thing that saved her from being obliterated by the rapidly escalating electric torture was the pipe that helped to ground her. Near the Cold Carbonite Regulator Core Crimson lights flashed below him, a sinister Cackle filling the air. Kakuto's voice came clear as day from across the distance, echoing in Darex's mind. "All of your companionions are within my Grasp yet you have None of them within yours." Boxes with electronics erupting into flames as he fell down the great trunk of the machine. The Electricity was a coming steadily up the walls and arcing wildly between the pipes. The unsettling feeling of electric charge was strong all around him, and the Carbonite Regulator was making a furious rumble as the pipes fought seizure. "How Careless it was of you to leave her Alone with me..." The howl of something inscrutable echoed down from the repulsorshaft, a stirring clue of the horror that roamed above. White smoke poured downward from the ruined elevator, making the air smell of charcoal. "...Meanwhile the Green One with his Master vulnerable to It." The surges of unchecked energy continued to cut through the sea of darkness below him, illuminating the path as the eye of a blinding thunderstorm. "Time is Short Darex!"
