Dark by Light.
It is several years after the Great Jedi Civil War and the Jedi Exile; the Galaxy is left in ruins from the extreme conflict between the Sith and the Republic. Though the Republic has emerged victorious, the need for Jedi and soldiers to maintain peace from the feuds ensuing from the sudden surplus in free territory is in high demand. Czerka Corporation has been contracted by the Republic to start a Galaxy wide reconstruction of all the war torn and damaged worlds. This operation comes with a great need for mineral rich worlds for rebuilding purposes, and in this unnamed sector of space lays an unheard of concentration of such materials: a world loaded with innumerable amounts of durasteel and other metals vital to the re-stabilization of the Republic government. Unbeknownst by the Republic Senate, an Echani sect of force users leading a large faction of their own people had already taken claim to the sector and threatens the use of deadly force on the already established miners of Czerka Corp. if they are not removed from their sacred grounds and ruins. Threatening the already unstable situation is Mandalorain raiders warring with the Echani and raiding Czerka outposts on the planet from a hidden base. Faced with this dangerous and volatile situation the Jedi Council has dispatched a group of Jedi escorted by a detachment of Republic forces and naval groups. Sent with the Jedi is a group of Republic archeologists insisted on by Czerka Corp. to investigate the unexplained ruins on the planetÃ¢Â€Â™s surface. Unwilling to strain the already shaky relations with Czerka, the Jedi Council is forced to accept.
Location Description: The planet is mostly Jungle and forests, but there are multiple Sith ruins and mass burials grounds scaring the landscape, and nothing really grows around there. Czerka Corp has recently entered the area and set up a dozen mining faculties, a head quarters and a space port in just less than two weeks, all located on the same continent. The Planet is crawling with Echani and Mandalorains with multiple skirmishes accruing every day. This planets jungles are also home to a variety of deadly wild-life, especially a number of large bug species.
(Please READ them)
1. You may create character you want. But please be realistic. Clarify their name and species so others can follow their actions easily. There will be a maximum of 3 Mandos available right now to avoid one-sided conflicts. Get em while they last.
2. You can kill characters you create but you can't kill other people's characters unless you get their OK or they say they have been killed in battle with you. However your character is not invincible. So donÃ¢Â€Â™t pit him or her against something that he or she is unlikely to survive. (Trust me; there will be a lot of that.) IÃ¢Â€Â™ll be watching to make sure no one is overpowered. Also please include a weakness in your character; this also helps to prevent overpowered characters.
3. You can have close to any weapon you want but you can only have what your character could physically carry - otherwise they wouldn't be able to move. And also please bear in mind that this is the Old Republic, super high-tech weapons are not allowed. Slug-throwers are common. (Rev = right now.)
4. Be consistent, e.g. if someone says they blew up a building, don't suddenly be assaulting it.
5. If you have sustained many wounds you will have to either get medical help or eventually die.
6. Follow the storyline; sure add a few twists and turns but allow others to see where you want to go so they can help you get there. Out-of-game communication/coordination is highly encouraged.
7. Have fun.
[Ã¢Â€Â¦and the Light shall bring Darkness upon us all]
An incomplete fragment of a translated text found on a Sith obelisk just outside the ruins of the newly discovered Terran-class planet, presumed to be a Sith mockery of the Jedi. Further investigations are being conducted.
Streaking across the sky at Mach 3, in a Aurek-class fighter (http://www.galactic-voyage.com/Light%20 … ighter.htm) Jax Talo surveyed the ruins with a critical eye. Sith ruins were always overly dramatic, too many pointy spires, too much blackÃ¢Â€Â¦ect. Even from 10,000 feet he could already tell that these ruins were nothing less than dreary. Talo sighed and banked to the right. The Sith had a lot to learn about architecture.
TaloÃ¢Â€Â™s Comm suddenly went off:
Ã¢Â€Âœ*Stzzz*UmÃ¢Â€Â¦Sir this is Hea *tzzzzzzzz*own fighters on *tzzz*ar please give visual *tzzz*formation. Over.Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂœUh, what was that Command? Over.Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂœCome in Command. Over.Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂœÃ¢Â€Â¦.Kriff. That canÃ¢Â€Â™t be good.Ã¢Â€Â
Talo checked his scanners, Aurek fighters were unfortunately only equipped with short-range scanners, and those were only showing static.
Ã¢Â€ÂœStupid Force-forsaken peace of sh-Ã¢Â€Âœ
He was interrupted by high-pitched beeping. The ships computer began to rant:
Ã¢Â€ÂœWeapons lock, commence evasive maneuvers. Weapons lock, commence evasive maneuvers. Weapons lock, commence evasive maneuvers.Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂœCrap. Crap. Crap. CrapÃ¢Â€Â Repeated Talo as he started to juk and jink wildly like a madman, as the sky he had previously occupied exploded in a hundred mini-flak-like explosions. Talo opening up an all-frequency comm. channel, while simultaneously trying to evading the exploding sky, tried not to sound too scared began to broadcast:
Ã¢Â€ÂœThis is Jedi Padawan Jax Talo, requesting assistance, am taking fire, repeat IÃ¢Â€Â™m under attack. Please assist!Ã¢Â€Â Jax hit the repeat button then shutoff the comm.
Ã¢Â€ÂœNow to get out of jamming rangeÃ¢Â€Â¦Ã¢Â€Â he whispered to himself.
He proceed to carry out his plan by taking a steep dive, the g-forces shoving him into his seat, the ground rapidly coming to meet him. Pulling up in time to see the enemy fighters (four of them) fly overhead (incapable of making such a steep dive) then break-off evenly and cleanly to the left and right coming around to get on his six again. He was able to catch a look at the ships.
Ã¢Â€ÂœMandalorians. PredictableÃ¢Â€Â He grumbled.
Ã¢Â€ÂœWhy oh why did I have to go alone?Ã¢Â€Â he asked himself, while he hit the accelerators quickly speeding past the wide turn of the Interceptors.
Ã¢Â€ÂœI really hope that was far enough outside the jamming signalÃ¢Â€Â¦Ã¢Â€Â
He had only a brief moment of peace before they began shooting again. He resumed his reckless maneuvers along the surface. He was shaking and sweating profusely, and was just about to slip up, and get himself blasted all over the planets surface when two streaks of white flew just a dozen feet above his ship spewing green fire. It was over before he fully realized it had started.
Ã¢Â€ÂœThis is Echani patrol Ã¢Â€Â˜Fire sprayÃ¢Â€Â™.Ã¢Â€Â Announced a female voice over his comm.
Ã¢Â€ÂœYou are to proceed under are escort to outpost Ã¢Â€Â˜Green HavenÃ¢Â€Â™. Do not resist. Will you comply?Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂœNo, IÃ¢Â€Â™m going to resist and get smeared all over the planet surfaceÃ¢Â€Â¦I mean yes.Ã¢Â€Â
Ã¢Â€ÂœCopy that, form up pleaseÃ¢Â€Â
Why do I get the feeling IÃ¢Â€Â™m going to regret thisÃ¢Â€Â¦ He thought hopelessly.
Name: Jax Talo
Occupation: Jedi Padawan
Weapons: Light saber, concealed hold-out blaster.
Weapon details: Light saber is generally unremarkable save for one small gem on the bottom. The Light saber color is yellow.
Appearance: Jedi robes: outer robes dark brown, inner robes cream colored. Dark green eyes, brown/blonde hair.
Personality: Easy going, inexperienced, annoyed easily. Prone to emitting large amounts of swearing and sarcasm.
Short History: Jax Talo was one of the few people to escape the complete destruction of Taris, found in an orphanage after the events of the Jedi Exile, Talo was taken at an older age for Jedi training and is weaker than most in the Force, and was taken simply because of the extreme need for more Jedi. Due to the massive shock he felt during the deaths of billions of people on Taris when he was a child, his Force awareness extends just a few feet away from him. It is unlikely he will ever overcome the fear of extending himself with the Force.
Inside the Czerka Corp headquarters, Traya Fray listened to the heated exchange from behind the wall of Jedi, Republic soldiers and Czerka Corp officers, crowding around the holo display, with interest. It seemed that one of the Padawan scouts that had been sent out had been captured by the Echani, and were holding him hostage in till the Jedi and the Republic left the planet. Something about him being dueled every day in till the Republic was off planet. From all the yelling, negotiations didnÃ¢Â€Â™t seem to be going so well. Then the comm. was shut off and there was silence. Master Haron Bal, the Jedi in charge spoke up:
Ã¢Â€ÂœWe need to put together a team to rescue Talo. Put out a request for Mercs in the Spaceport, were going to need all the help we can get. We still have to defend Czerka Corp faculties from Mandalorain raids, and escort the ArcheologistÃ¢Â€Â™s down to the ruins.Ã¢Â€Â He paused for a moment.
Ã¢Â€ÂœI need volunteers.Ã¢Â€Â
Name: Traya Fray
Species: Near-Human (has only a few biological differences from humans and the only remarkable ones are her pointy ears and pale skin.)
Occupation: Jedi Padawan
Weapons: Light saber, fore-arm length Vibro-blade.
Weapon Details: Her Light saber is completely smooth and organic looking; almost looking like an upside down tree without branches. It is emblazoned with streaks of a light catching gold colored crystal along the hilt. The Light Sabers color is oddly darker than the normal blue.
The Vibro-Blade has black-and gold style hilt (same as her Light saber) with a few of the gold linings curling along the surface of the blade
Appearance: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/File:Fay_HS.JPG her outer robes are black brown, her inner robes are black. Armor includes: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/File:Cassusfett.jpg The armor is extremely light and allows a considerable amount of movement. But still strong enough to stop a blaster bolt, before being melted.
Personality: Serious, no nonsense type, a bit on the sensitive side, doesnÃ¢Â€Â™t like to be criticized. Easily angered. Dignified. Outsider in social groups but is almost always given a command position by the Masters.
Short History: Traya Fray comes from a rich aristocratic family one of the key financial supporters of the Jedi Order. She was discovered at an early age (nearly right after birth) to be strongly force sensitive, and was immediately taken in by the persuasive Jedi, leading to some discomfort to parents and gossip of Ã¢Â€Â˜baby-snatchersÃ¢Â€Â™. She was afforded many special treatments during her training, due to her high-family standing causing her to be somewhat of an outsider in Jedi-social groups. It is rumored that her expensive Light saber was made available by her wealthy family, but that is denied by the Jedi Council who lamely excuse the matter saying that higher gifted students receive better equipment. She is also very sensitive about her physical near-human appearance. She has been falling from the light in recent years, a lot of resentment is building up inside her, and she is easily susceptible to Dark Side influences.
