In Topic: Needing a few more villains

Yesterday, 05:56 PM

I could offer up myself if you need a few writers. As the New Republic was an enemy of the Sith Empire, it wouldn't be too outlandish for me to be dispatched to hunt down the remnants and clean them out. I do enjoy playing an antagonist/nemesis in someone else's story arc, so if you'll have me, I am more than willing to oblige.

Vexen's swing would slice through air as O'Doran had evaded off to the side and dodged instead of standing his ground and blocking. Overhead blocks were far too easily exploitable and a particular favorite move if his overhead swings were blocked were simply to deactivate his saber and pass right through their guard before reigniting it when the hilt had passed the enemy's saber. Battle wasn't about honor or etiquette, it was about surviving and not dying, even if it meant using underhanded tactics in battle. In the end honor, glory, wealth were all meaningless if one did not live long enough to squander them in peace. Life was the only commodity worth holding any value, and something Vexen relished in relieving others of. O'Doran had made a wise decision on instinct, something that Vexen was respecting as it presented itself to him.

 

As O'Doran rolled off to the side, Vexen watched as the Sith Knight took a swing at Vexen's leg. Smart and observant; O'Doran was probing for likely areas of weakness, or just letting instinct take over. Joints were often the weakest points in any set of armor, especially one designed to defend against lightsabers. He was being wise in not taking a more powerful opponent head on. Vexen would quickly twist his wrist as he reached out with the Force. His offhand saber would fly out from his belt and activated as he intercepted the Gurlanin's blade. Vexen's main saber would brush against Kain's shoulder. Had he put more force behind the retaliatory swing, he might have cleaved O'Doran in two, but instead left the man with a scar as he shifted his wrist as the blade moved up and to the opposite side at his neck where Vexen would hold him there at his mercy.

 

Vexen would lift up his left leg, berating the young Sith as he did so, " There is no honor in battle... " A swift kick was shot out as Vexen's armored boot connected with O'Doran's stomach sending him a few meters away " No glory in death... " The armored Sith Lord turned to O'Doran with his sabers at his side, deactivating them as the aura around him slowly draining life in the Pit dissipated, " There is only survival of the strongest... Do what you must to survive, to overcome, to annihilate any who stand against you. It doesn't matter who you were or the legacy you leave behind. It is about what you do to live on. "Vexen would look down at him, his expressionless mask giving nothing away as he stared in silence for a moment, " You have potential, but as you are now, you are still little more than a somewhat useless tool. You must be cunning and deceptive to survive amongst the Sith. " Vexen's appetite had been partially piqued, but it was not time. Like fruit, O'Doran was not yet ripe to be consumed, though the day that he did become so, it would be a wonderful meal for the Anzati.

Welcome to Chaos, enjoy your stay! As John Locke said, feel free to ask any questions you might have here or over DM's, we're a helpful bunch. It might seem daunting at first, but you can be caught up to speed and eased into it fairly quickly.

So, what you're telling me is that this weapon has absolutely no counter against since it can go through any conventional defenses. On top of being a massive area of effect Force weapon with limited production? While I applaud the creative aspect of it, there is a lot of concern from me that this is just Force Drain on a massive scale, especially given that there are so few counters or actual weaknesses outside of a fleeting confrontation. Yes it is fragile, but assuming you don't try to cart this into a Major faction's area of influence, you'd essentially be left free to go around to neutral planets sucking every city dry without much contest, and I imagine that you'd have a suitable escort fleet for any ships mounted with this, because the first thought that comes to mind is have the means of disabling any defensive weapons a targeted city might have as well as escort to handle any sort of opposition attempting to intercept it. 

 

Edit: I'm also curious as to why they need the essence of organics when Shards don't need anything to sustain themselves.

The fact that this is still being argued shows ineffectiveness on the staff side in coming to a decisive conclusion and lack of understanding the larger picture. The line could have simply been drawn at "If it has hands and fingers, it won't be accepted" and that will be good enough. At this point the argument for whether or not the Atlas or the Aegis is approved/denied has long since passed and it's just coming down to a matter of "Don't make me spend x amount of days or weeks on something only for you to hate the fact that it has hands" which is basically what the issue is here from the Factory staff side. It was never an issue with the function, the armor, or even the weapons, it was an issue with the appearance and whether or not it fits. But if this rule of "its aesthetics need to fit Star Wars" is going to persist, you best be willing to look at starships, weapons, droids and everything else with just as much scrutiny.
