  1. NAME: Roshev. FANTASY RACE: Human CLASS/OCCUPATION: Pickpocket, Theif AGE: 22 WHY'D SHE BARGAIN WITH THE VOID? To gain the skills needed to survive and thrive (the ability to steal things, and steal them well) WHAT'S HIS NIGHTMARE? He unlocks every door, evades every guard, only to enter the last room in what appears to be a palace, but when he does, a young woman appears and she laughs as he falls down. Down and down, far below. Into a pit that seems to echo. He sees images of the Void, but they fly by rapidly, not allowing him to know what they mean. Then he awakens. APPEARANCE: Young in face and body type. Many would assume he is 16-18. Light brown hair, rings around his eyes, and straight, white teeth. WHAT'S HIS GIFT FROM THE TAVERN KEEP? ____________ I'm blanking on this. A little help as to what it should be?
  2. Remember that in dreams, everything makes sense, even if it makes no sense in conscious life. This is but a nightmare, and naught more. Awaken! "Light.. Thanks for pulling me out of that." "Of course." Light said simply with a smile. "So, whats our plan to finish this thing?" Light began to respond with "First we'll regroup--" He was cut off by the spectacle occurring with Zarev. "Come on, we'll go catch up with Zarev and end this thing." Light said before taking off to Zarev's side, hoping Corsail would be right behind him. He couldn't believe what he was seeing. "What's the plan Zarev?" Light began feeling the effects of the surge of Force energy rushing within him, but reinforced his control using mental exercises. Despite the fact that he could feel it attempting to bolster his own Force energy, he knew controlling it would be key to defeating the Entity. And, he thought, for the first time since the conflict began, what effect could this have after.
  3. I saw that Darkness was back up. What's Void about?

  4. "Why would I kill you? Think man! Does any of this make sense? Is it even possible?" Light walked over to his friend and placed a hand on his shoulder. "This is an illusion, and you know it. We need to find a way to break free of it. What hold does this mirage have upon you?"
  5. Light sensed that Per'Dra was free of her nightmare. He thought it strange the Entity had not attacked yet but was too preoccupied with trying to help the others to put more thought into it. He could sense Corsail, but before he left to help him, "We need to get everyone out of their nightmares. I feel the fighting will begin again soon." He spoke to Per'Dra, sure that she would hear him. He ran to where Corsail lay, clearly still in the grasp of his nightmare. He knelt and attempted to aid him in his battle against his nightmare. He felt himself being drawn in, but rather than resist, he aided his decent. Maybe my presence here will help to convince him it is a nightmare. He saw Corsail firing a volley of shots. "Hey." Light spoke only loudly enough to be heard, not wishing to be the target of a surprised Corsail. He felt the environment shifting around him, and then he was in the world of Corsail's nightmare, which, like his own, was hard to distinguish from reality.
  6. Light felt rather than heard Per'dra's proclamation. He didn't really understand what it meant, but he knew that they had all killed people. Out of necessity, error, or emotion, all of them had slain enemies. He started reaching out with the Force even more, feeling the others start to come back, their energies dampened, but stronger than before. Light also felt the Force spirits that were helping his friends. He did not know them, and had never been friendly with anyone with a strong enough Force connection to die and come back as a spirit. He wished he could once again see his brother, but knew it was impossible. He focused instead on giving energy to those that were already starting to wake up, speeding their recovery. He was getting tired, but it was a worthy use of his energy. ((Sorry, I don't really have anyone to summon as a Force spirit, but I feel that Avriela and Light should have been able to support each other out of the nightmare.))
  7. Avriela looked around in confusion when she heard the whispers of the Force Spirits. She saw the Shan fly by overhead and realized that Vlalkor must still be alive and that meant that she was being tricked by the Entity. She immediately ceased her attack on Light and realizes that the bodies around her are an illusion. She speaks, "You... You didn't kill them Light. None of these bodies are even real. Remember who we are fighting." Light couldn't help noticing the change in her posture, and how quickly she ceased her attack. She must've seen something he didn't, but she was telling him what he'd suspected already. Thankful for the breakthrough, he couldn't help but wonder Where is our true enemy? Light scanned the surroundings while checking his wounds with his hands. Surprisingly, he'd resisted most of the lightning, and close calls with the saber, with only minor burns. Light saw it. The Entity. For a brief second. Then he woke up from his position on the ground near Per'dra. Wait, was any of it real? Did Avriela really help me? Light was shocked. He checked his wounds again, but found that they were in the same state as in the nightmare. Wait, does that mean... that if I'd died in there, it would've been over? Wait, the others! Light looked around, but saw no one else and went to Per'dra who was still writhing on the ground. He took a knee, and decided that he would try to help her wake up. He reached out with the Force, trying to find a way into her nightmare, to help her awaken.
  8. Light shuddered, blinked, and suddenly it was just as she'd said. The Shan was completely wrecked. More bodies of his allies lay scattered around. He dodged, blocked, and parried the strikes. He felt the slight burns that saber strikes had when they got too close. He locked blades with her long enough to speak. "Who am I?", Light spoke, "Say my name!" He was trying to prevent himself from suggesting new horror to his ally. He thought there was a pattern that he could see, but he couldn't tell. But he was a monster, and this was what he'd wrought. He couldn't help but let the thoughts creep in. He knew he would never murder his friends, but he also had murdered them. He was sure it wasn't him that had committed the atrocities laid bare before him as his own. He couldn't help but hope that they were not truly his.
  9. Light turned and saw Per'dra drop her sabers, but everything was getting darker. Light knew his mind was being deceived, and tried to resist, tried to fight. Per'dra picked up her sabers.. No, Perdra spoke and knelt. He couldn't hear her though. The Entity was there, and yet it wasn't. From within it spewed all of the friends and allies Light had made. At first it was slow, but it started speeding up until they were almost all there. No, it was just the Entity, or was it? Light approached the Entity, and went to strike him with a lightsaber blow to the chest. Instead of the block or parry that he expected the Entity didn't move... and then it was Varik that he'd struck down in cold blood. A friend, killed by his own hand. And the Entity was where Varik had stood merely moments before. Light charged and thrust his sabers through it's chest, and Styke Te'enona fell to the ground. Light couldn't believe that a fellow member of the Brotherhood of Swordmasters was here. The Entity, again, was moved somewhere else. Light couldn't handle it. It was so real.. So disturbingly real. He had just slain two friends... He kept trying to see what was really happening, but all he could see was his friends. The disgusted looks on their faces as they checked on the two corpses he'd made. He tried to listen to the real world, but could hear only their words expressing their disbelief that he could have fallen to the Dark side. Sounds of them igniting their sabers. Out of the corner of his eye he saw Per'dra, still kneeling, the same distance from him as before. Had he moved at all? Was she real? Light couldn't tell anymore. As he turned towards her, she vanished. Who vanished? Avriela made her way out of the growing crowd of upset former allies. She was ready, and she attacked. Light, immediately on the defensive, couldn't believe her ferocity. He blocked and parried, trying to get her to slow down so he could explain himself. Can you really explain away killing two of your friends? Light kept fighting, kept being pushed back. He feigned a block, deactivated and dropped his sabers, and rolled to her side. He grabbed an arm, and immediately felt a surge of electricity flow from it. He ignored the wounds she'd scored on his hand, arm, and chest, and pulled her arm towards himself. She resisted, as he'd expected, causing not just her arm, but her whole body to move towards him. He put her in a chokehold, quickly locking his elbow under her chin with one arm, and using the other to control her saber. Light quickly spoke as he applied pressure to her throat, trying to keep her awake, but drain her energy. "Can you hear me? What are you seeing that is making us fight? I don't think it's real. It can't be real... Please, snap out of it."
  10. Light was sent flying by the force wave. He managed to recover in the air, landing on his feet. Hearing the communications from the others, he was already preparing to avoid closing with the Entity, when he noticed Per'dra and moved into a defensive position near her. "This thing is something else," Light muttered to himself while scanning for Varik.
  11. As the enemies collapsed, Light returned his flying saber to his hand. He then used the Force to close the wound from the blaster bolt. "Yeah, it's what I get for showing off, right?" Light looked over the Entity with a bit of awe. This creature had been the cause of their hardship from the beginning. But, it looked almost normal, ignoring the eyes. "Right, but I feel like it's misleading us. We must be..." Varik ran off to engage before Light finished "careful." This is going to be a hell of a fight. Light watched how quickly the Entity moved between Zarev's and Varik's strikes. Almost too fast. Light moved to engage from another angle; he tried sweeping the Entity's legs with his blade hoping to impair its movement.
  12. "Honestly, and with the galaxy at stake too? We must be magnets for trouble." Light laughed at Per'dra's joke, but then... Light had an idea. He switched off one of his sabers, keeping the other for defense and began throwing the deactivated saber at enemies, with a bit of the Force behind it, to knock them unconscious. His first targets were the Sith. In combination with his own fighting, it proved very effective in incapacitating them, as it slammed into the back of one of their heads, and caused the other to hesitate, unprotected, long enough for Light to deliver an uppercut to his jaw. He decided to unleash this combination on the other troopers. It was devilishly effective, fists or saber slamming into heads, necks, a few unarmored solar plexuses. The only downside was the loss of protection. A bolt that he'd have normally deflected with his unarmed hand made it through, grazing his side.
  13. Yeah, sorry. I haven't been checking because of the long delay between my post and anyone else's.

  14. "Try not to worry. And let's go." Light said these words, turned, ran, and jumped off the ship, silver sabers at the ready. A few of the troopers started firing at the ship, and Light managed to hit some of the blaster fire back at them. Two were knee capped, but a third got hit in the throat. Damn As the three troopers hit the ground, Light landed five feet away from the group. I feel bad for them, but we can't afford to hold back with the number of enemies being so much greater than our own. The Sith, seeing that he was slightly separated from the group, charged.
  15. "Sure thing." Light quickly checked the gauge, noticing that the calibration was completely wrong. There were fluctuations, but it was to be expected when shields were up in a combat scenario, especially if any small arms fire were directed at the craft. The "interference" from the Force must be affecting her more than she's letting on... "There we go, all fixed. Are you sure you're ready to go? You could stay here with Vlalkor and help manage the ship."
  16. "Well, let's hope that you are as good in real life as you are in sims." Light smiled to Vlalkor and nodded as he left to go to the ramp. He arrived just as the ramp fully lowered. He turned to Zarev, curious, "Are we going to jump?" Light was surprised by Per'dra, but he was already ready for battle. "Is it your comms? What's wrong?"
  17. Light knew the time to leave was nigh. He set the controls that he was manually controlling to either be controlled from Vlalkor's station or to be automatically handled. Light almost laughed at Vlalkor's surprised expression. "You're not coming with us?" Light asked Vlalkor after setting up all the systems for his departure. Light rose, ready to leave once he received an answer.
  18. Well, there goes my plan. "Man all stations. Prepare for whatever they throw at us." Light was ready at his station, preparing alternate courses to their destination for possible targeting solutions, and avoiding them. This is going to be a bumpy ride, but a few less bumps won't hurt [[OOC]] Where did everyone go? x.x Everyone, to your battle stations! [[/OOC]]
  19. Light was unsurprised by the mentophage garnering its troops to protect itself. However, it was surprising who his troops were. He was sitting near Vlalkor when the craziness began. He immediately began formulating strategies to defeat or bypass the ships that were the biggest threat for the time being. Light was unsurprised by the tardiness of the duo. "We have a number of hostiles that could destroy us very rapidly, but fighting hasn't started. " "Patience Varik. We have not yet been engaged. I recommend that we send a message for the Republic group to flee. Remember, they asked us to surrender. This should be our opportunity. We can either pretend to surrender, and then swiftly accelerate when they get close. Or, if we are unable to escape that way, then we may end up on one of their ships. The Mentophage isn't so far away, else it's troops would not be clustered here. Do we have confirmation on a location yet? If I had to wager, there would be a large heat signature, either due to the creature's forces on the ground, or due to its own mass." Light began surveying the thermal images on one of the computers.
  20. Hey Chev, Warlord and I are going to talk privately about what our characters will discuss/train in The Darkness Within, so you can go ahead with the time skip. :)

  21. Hey bud, wanna go over what our characters will have talked about during the time skip? PM me.

  22. Light caught a glance of the look in Zarev's eyes, and, while he couldn't tell if it was due to the force or his own intuition, he knew. "Don't miss a chance to be together." Light sent the message telepathically to the new pair, unsure of how the others would react, knowing what they may about the Jedi. But, personal attachment had been the reason Light had left the Order, and he admired their ability to find one another through all of the craziness that had been occurring. "Come Corsail. We could go over some force techniques if you want. To either help you block out your enemies, or to channel it into offensive or defensive tools. And I think you might need a weapon for the coming battle..." Light began to walk towards the workbench, curious what tools he might have to work with. [OOC] Now might be a good time for a time skip,eh?[/OOC]
  23. "It seems that it would be wisest to prepare, but I'll leave the books to you. I'll start making repairs on our weapons, and someone should prepare supply packs for everyone. Let me know if you to have something fixed." Light began gathering weapons in preparation for this task, going around the ship, and asking the others. Everything we do right from this point on, is a step away from our defeat. Everything we do wrong, a step closer. Hopefully, we are not too close to the edge when the time for conflict comes.
  24. Light's dream was vivid and intense. He was floating through space, nearly completely unable to control his own direction. It was as if he were little more than an object. Then he saw it.... A large spider, whose webs stretched across the galaxy. And he was on a direct course for the center, where the spider was constantly spewing more web. He watched as it continued spraying, drawing closer and closer. Then, ever so suddenly, it turned towards him and shot it's web. He awoke to the image of a mass of web in his face, with a cold sweat down his back. That cannot be our fate. I won't let it. He found the need to be clean to be pressing, so he locked his door, and washed himself with a rag and some water from one of the containers in his room. He dressed himself once more, including his weapons, before walking out of his room and towards the sound of the nearest conversation. ...but I want it dead. "That may well be the only option. Were that it could be turned to the light, with the amount of power it has... It could inspire the next golden age for the Republic, the Sith, or both. But alas, the threat must be ended as quickly as it can be, else we will be to blame for any more lives lost, and be more likely to succumb to its power."
  25. Light watched Varik leave, and figured that to be a good idea for himself as well. "See you later Per'dra, I'm off to my quarters." Light turned and left, heading straight to his room, he went in side, laid down, and fell asleep to the sound of the ship entering hyperspeed.
