PRAKITH - DEEP CORE

 

OOC : This thread is open to Imperial-interested players wishing to be part of a new organization. Everyone else please DM for invite.

The Prakith System was the middle of nowhere and perfect neutral ground for the first face to face meeting between the various minor and scattered Imperial-aligned factions coming together to discuss a mutual future. The bright stars, tightly packed in the deep core, were bright, illuminating the unpleasant looking world of Prakith, ancient home of Darth Andeddu.

Here the system waited, quiet, undisturbed, for the participants to arrive.

Location : Prakith System - Deep Core
Aboard the Immortal-Class Star Destroyer Devastator
Objective : Meet with fellow Imperials

The Devastator dropped out of hyperspace, finishing its final jump through the Deep Core, a long, stop-start and perilous trip, with hyperspace routes this deep being what they were. Bigger vessels had it harder, but they were more durable, so it evened out.

Devastator's harsh angled lines cut through space. It had begun life as a Sith vessel, then being in the hands of Kaine Australis, before being gifted to Auriana. Now it was hers, and she had rechristened it herself, as a symbol of Imperial might, that a true Empire might live again.

An officer on the bridge looked to her, resplendent in a white Grand Admiral's uniform, the final promotion she would recieve from anyone save for a being she would call Emperor.


Nothing on sensors yet, Admiral.

Auriana looked, met eyes, and nodded, then went back to the viewport, pacing the long bridge above the crew, busy at their stations, awaiting the arrival of the others. She hoped they came soon.

Should we launch fighters, Admiral?

The question from the starfighter controller, who had been ordered to hold. Auriana halted, turned and met the crewmember's stare.

Not yet. Continue scanning the system. It's entirely possible our guests haven't arrived yet, but let's not have our guard down.

Impressing her, the crew did not engage in further idle talk, but redoubled their efforts at their stations. Satisified, the Grand Admiral turned back to the viewport, awaiting the future.

Location: Prakith System - Deep Core

Aboard the Conqueror-class Star Destroyer "Annihilator"

Objective: Attend the Meeting

 

 

The Chiss Grand Admiral would not have to wait long for the arrival of her guests. The sensors aboard the Devastator would likely detect the arrival of dozens-no, hundreds of vessels from hyperspace. The first to emerge, the Conqueror-class Star Destroyer and flagship of the Empire Reborn, Annihilator. It was soon joined by a vast multitude of Star Destroyers and Frigates, who released their fighter squadrons to commence patrols of the meeting area and it's surrounding space.

 

The Lord Regent strode across the bridge of the Annihilator, passing several bridge officers who bowed politely upon his arrival. He briefly gazed out of the bridge viewport at the Devastator ahead and his assembled armada before turning to the nearby holographic communicator, to contact the host of the meeting. Soon enough, the holographic visage of his head and shoulders appeared on Devastator's bridge. "Ahh, Grand Admiral. It is a pleasure to finally make your acquaintance. Kaine has spoken highly of you. I trust we have arrived in time for the meeting?", he said with a warm smile, nodding his head politely.

Severan had been a simple Captain when the One Sith held the Core. He had volunteered to serve and fight, as the various galactic powers began closing in on his homeworld of Coruscant. He had been deployed on a long range scouting mission of enemy movements when word came of the fall. With the might of the galaxy seemingly turned against them, Severan had taken charge of the small fleet elements with him and led them into the Deep Core, where they had remained in hiding. For several years the fleet had been travelling the Deep Core, discovering long lost worlds, gathering other scattered survivors like themselves, and biding their time. When the message to meet at Prakith had come, Severan had been ready. 

 

A relatively small fleet exited hyperspace at the edge of the system, made up of several corvettes, frigates, and a single Victory II Class Star Destroyer, the Malodrax. They moved in tight formation towards the meeting point further in the system, several squadrons of TIE fighters flying in picket lines around the fleet. Severan had experience with other Imperials, and despite their shared ideals and goals, violence was more common than peace. Several meetings like this one in the past had been nothing but a thinly veiled trap to remove a rival. He would not be killed simply to further another beings agenda. 

 

Severan currently stood at the sensor station, looking over the shoulder of the officer working the post. The massive fleet that had arrived just before them gave Severan slight pause. It had been years since he had seen a concentration of Imperial vessels in such numbers, and the prospect of dealing with anyone with that much firepower was risky. However, the message he had received was too promising to ignore. Turning away from the station, he walked down the length of the bridge of the Malodrax, coming to a halt just before the main viewport at the front of the bridge. 

 

"Send a friendly greeting to our friends there, Commander. Lets make sure that we are both here for the same reasons."

It spoke to who Tsair was when his fleet arrived out of orbit, or it spoke to truly how cobbled together the Empire of the Hand was, it was a showing that oozed raw humbleness. He brought no dozens of warships, or vessels able to scour entire systems with their firepower. Three ships, that was all, some bizarre heavy cruiser that was some amalgamation of Imperial and Chiss design, a common trend within the Empire of the Hand the newest allies of the group were to find out.

 

Next to the cruiser were two paltry patrol ships, Asdroni, they called them. Short and stout, anyone who looked close enough could see they had an impressive compliment of small Maser cannons but little else. As seemed customary for Tsair he had requested the presence of Jrin'erer'oskest, gruff as the woman could be the fresh blood and new ideas kept him sharp, allowed him to consider options: while not falling to the army council, he had been silently using her in a similar role.

 

Tsiar himself sat in a command chair, the bridge worked around in a bustling but tame activity: checking weapons and hyperdrive in case it was a trap, and of course, making sure the old vessel he was riding in was running in such a state that it wouldn't give out on them. With a wave of his hand, Tsair sent another bustle of activity as the Chiss's deep voice let out a calmly placed command in Chenuh.

 

"Ran'bah cavrcah ch'a vucon'evib bat'al ch'at to sesvio'ah let'ir."

 

Many of his favored officers for such a mission were the old crew who had defected with their commander during the Empire of the Hand's founding, as such, many of those same souls still spoke majority Chenuh over basic. He had given little more than a simple command to hail the comms of the other fleets, and that they did. A single comm request sent to each of the (assumed) flagships present, he needed to make sure there was no trap, and of course, good manners and fine greetings were important as well.

The Devastator sat in Prakith space, now no longer alone. Auriana allowed herself a smile, just a small one. Good, they'd all arrived. Turning to her comm officer who was, she was pleased to see, ready and waiting, and walked across to the Holoprojector.

Open a channel.

Auriana clasped her hands behind her back as the holoimager scanned over her, and flashed to life with representations of the other arrivals. She waited patiently until all of the other holoimages had resolved before speaking. Another Chiss, and two humans. Four beings who would decide the future of the Galaxy.


Thankyou for your kind words, and for arriving so promptly. Let us get down to business.

 

The Admiral was not one to waste words or time. She believed in efficiency, and they all knew why they were here.

 

We have a mutual interest in the restoration of Imperial power in this galaxy. Though we differ in our particular specialities, we have a unique situation here where all may benefit from a future alignment, with scope to grow, and eventually expand into our separate spheres of influence.

It is my intention here today to see a Pact of Imperial Understanding, and for we four disparate Imperial Factions to forge our path forward, united under a common authority, with the intent of bringing Palpatine's New Order to this Galaxy, without the dogmatic interference of the Force from the Sith, the Jedi or any other mystical group.

Logic, reason, and Imperial Authority. Together, we can create a strong, united future for the galaxy. I hope you will join me in pledging your service to this new Imperial initiative.


She fell silent, awaiting the words of the others. That would determine if this movement had a glorious future, or ended here before it could begin.

Severan was silent for several moments as he listened to the words of Flitha'urian'alan intently. He would be lying if he hadn't thought of the very subject she was broaching now. The Severan Dominate was a small faction, with almost its entire force rallied in this one star system. Should they have ever risked emerging from the Deep Core in the past, they likely would have been annihilated in short order. However he knew that the galaxy needed the stability and order of an Imperial faction. There were others claiming such a title in the galaxy at the time, however they were mere puppets of large, more prominent Force groups. Whether they called themselves Jedi, Sith, or any other possible version it mattered little. The thought of a true Empire again brought a brief smile to Severan's face.

 

"What exactly is it that you are suggestion, Grand Admiral. Your words have peaked my interest, but I am skeptical as to how we shall achieve this goal. How would we unite together into a single entity, and what would our goals be? Unite the galaxy by force, or through more peaceful means?" As he spoke, Severan folded his arms behind his back, looking at the Grand Admiral and all others in the meeting. He could only hope things went well. The mustering of a new Imperial faction for the good of the galaxy was a very good idea.

Auriana listened as Severan spoke. His words made good sense, they would want to have a good idea of what they were signing up for, so she demurred and explained the plan.

We will secure a holding in the Deep Core, a base of operations from which to build an Empire. We will combine our resources to take back those worlds we deem useful, by guile or by force. We will not slaughter populations wholesale, but merely remove, permanently, if necessary, their ability to resist us.

Our leader is a man known to all of you.


She sent the databurst, encrypted, to each of the participants. They'd all know the man of whom she spoke. He was known to each of them as a strong and wise voice, and most importantly, he was not a Force user.

 

One Empire, One Emperor.

She waited to see what the others would say. Uniting was one thing, but here, they had unity, and a leader to unite behind, one that she hoped would be acceptable to all of them, though she would not deign to speak the name of her Emperor.

"It would seem I have become the odd one out."

Tsair let out a soft chuckle, he indeed, did not share the vision these other Imperials did. The Unknown Regions was the priority, not the Galaxy. While he invoked the Empire in name there wasn't too much else to it, the bizarre cousins: one could call it the downfall to such potent Ascendancy ideology integrated into the Empire of the Hand.
 

"The Galaxy is not my goal. nor would heading to the deep core be beneficial to my cause and goal. Regardless of this fact, the Hand will be willing to lend assistance as long as we are given aid in our own task."

Seems the old Chiss was far from overly willing to absorb into another Imperial group, he couldn't quite go and abandon his life's work so easily.
