    Da Kun

    "Yes master, I understand, I failed you." I say to Palpatine as I am encircled by the main Sith Lords. "Do with me as you wish."

    "Failed, you have done far from fail, We have been searching for this man you described for years. I look at him astounded. "He belongs to a rebel faction who are hell-bent on killing me and stopping my Empire from forming." The Emperor said.

    "What did you do to him?" I ask "I have know idea I'm the nicest man in the galaxy." He said whith a smile.

    "Da Kun will you lead the Sith into battle and stop this rebellion before it even starts?"

    "My master I would be delighted."I get up off my knees and walk away with Sidious and Tyranos to go over the plan of attack.

    "In only three hours my place in the galaxy will be secure." the Emperor said.

    "Koji"

    7:10 pm

    "Boone. Reschedule your meeting. Or do it somewhere else. I have a bad feeling about this. You want to trust my bad feelings. If you really want to kill him, do as I say."

    "You haven't been so successful yourself, Jedi."
    "Quiet, old man. More important things to deal with."

    Now I have to get Ate Lyonne back. Who she is and wants to be.

    I close the door on the mansion, leaving the other former Jedi behind.

    After spending ten minutes chasing her trail, I find her on the island in the middle of the nearby lake. Saber ignited. I Force-leap to her. She swings at the trees, robbing them of their leaves, their branches and their trunks.

    Never thought I would see her like that.

    "Ate! What's wrong?" I ask her as I land with an oomph.

    "Don't tell me you're so blind as to not see that everything is."

    "No. I'm not." She plays with her lightsaber as we talk.

    "A rebel alliance. A joke." she groans.

    "What about that boy that Master Kenobi is watching? Anakin's son, Luke?"

    "Too little, too late."

    "You don't know that."

    Right.

    Lost Jedi....Lyonne Erstad

    7:25 PM

    I look down at the destruction at my feet. Destruction I caused. The dying trees...at my hand....I can feel the pain through the Force. I toss my lightsaber from hand to hand, bordering on carelessly. I can see the anxiousness in Dan's eyes, a bit of wonder and fear, alarm. The kid is no help to us now, will he ever be? Obi-Wan feels responsible for all that has happened because Anakin was his padawan...but must he now spend the rest of his life as an outcast, hermit, watching over a child that doesn't even know he exists? And what of the Jedi. Disbanded. Mace Windu, one of the greatest Jedi, dead. And the others? gone off to who knows where....hiding. What can a small band of rebels do? I feel so utterly alone and lost. I glance down at the lightsaber in my hand, my tool of protection. Do I struggle to reclaim the past, or do I forget it and try to survive the changing future?

    "Koji"

    7:27 pm

    "Are you finished?" I ask. She points her lightsaber at me.
    "With what?"
    "Oh, you know. Fear, hate, wrecklessness. All the things that you tell me not to do." I smile. She doesn't smile back. That's really disheartening, all things considered. If people were light, she would be a saber. No doubt.

    "If only it were so easy, little one."
    "Hey! I'm not really so little anymore."
    "In body or in spirit?"

    Oh, she think she's funny now.

    "It's just all of this, Ate. It's a lot. And you're nuts." I laugh.

    "Right." she remarks.

    "You know what we haven't done in a really long time?" she poses.

    "What?" I ask. We've been together for like the past what, week? Hung out, killed together. I really can't think any think of more meaningful I guess. Heh. I'm kidding.

    "Fought." she says.

    "Excuse me?"

    "You've grown a lot. Haven't you ever wondered what it would be like?" She smiles.

    It's weird. Her taking an interest in something I do. Maybe it's because of what she told me earlier.

    I take out my lightsaber, the red one.

    "I guess one of us has a lesson to learn."

    "Ben"

    7:30 pm

    I rotate my lightsaber, arching it in a clean circle as Dan brings out his own saber. Am I being reckless, careless? I'm not really sure right now, I feel lost. Lost in body, mind and spirit. The blue color cast off by my saber reflects against my skin. Things used to be so simple. Who will be better? I glance at Dan as he prepares himself. The Knight? or the Jedi Master? I suppose I'm about to find out. I close my eyes, trying to lose myself in the Force, my stomach flip flops. I can't calm myself, can't focus. I frown, what's wrong with me?! Letting out an agitated sigh I suddenly swing my lightsaber right at my forehead, letting the blade stop just hairs from my face. The glow and warmth beats down on my face as I let myself drift away. Hearing the rustling of the leaves, feeling the firm ground beneath me, even hearing Dan's breathing. Falling in and out, in and out. There it is. It's like taking a breath of fresh air, the feeling of completeness...I can still acheive it. The Force is all around us in, in us, always changing. The Force in all it's entirety, it's goodness, something I fear I stopped trying to pay attention to lately. Focusing to much on what was happening, wondering why it was happening, getting angry and frustrated. I was tearing myself away from the Force, focusing too much on the pain and anguish when I should be now, more then ever connecting myself with the Force, planning the next course. Good will overcome the Dark, it's just a matter of time, and waiting....so much waiting. But as long as I consider myself a Jedi, I must do all I can to protect the good and innocent, and to beat back the darkness that is consuming everything. I know what I, what we all, must do now. I open my eyes again, lowering my lightsaber.
    "Well are you going to make your move or what?"

    7:31

    "Just to have you react? No way!"

    I lift up the fallen and torn branches with the Force and throw them her way. While she cuts them with the blade, I rush in to take her out. She deflects with the lightsaber close to her. I punch with my free hand, but she grabs it. I pull her down and jump over her, twisting her arm.

    "Game over already?" I ask her jokingly. I know it's not over. I wouldn't be worth it if it was over.

    She rolls over, taking me over her back and almost making me eat it face first. Back to the lightsabers. We go at it for a while, each sensing the other's moves before it's made.

    The game gets increasing gets more dangerous as we both use higher levels of Force Energy. To the vision, the world becomes blurred, but to the higher senses, more clear. Right up to using the the Force itself as a weapon. My limits have never been tested this far.

    I can feel her. She's showing signs of weakness. I hope I'm not.
    She gathers Force energy again. I stop in my tracks, falling to my knees, letting her take aim. She attacks.

    I leap in to the air as the wave passes below me, landing squarely in front of Ben.

    "Tag. You're it." I grab her wrists and begin to shock her with lightning from my own hands, but I can barely get a spark off as we both pass out.

    "Ben"

    8:00 PM

    Perhaps it was all the effort it took to concentrate the Force into energy while we dueled. Maybe it was the constant physical moves when kept making involving flipping, dodging, and using our lightsabers. It also could have been that when Dan went to shock me, I sent some Force his way at the same time. Whatever it was, we were spent....the Force can do that to you....and almost as if it were a dream, we suddenly both fell to our knees. My head swam and I just barely sense Dan and myself un-igniting our sabers. I reach my hand out to stop myself from falling to the ground. I blink a few times, my vision blurring. All I can think about, though I can't think too clearly to begin with, is that we are in extreme danger if we're passed out for too long in this area by ourselves. But any other thoughts on what to do escape me as my strength gives out and I collapse onto the ground. I manage to clip my saber under my jacket before I completely lose consciousness.

    OOC: I think we may be in a bit of a stall here, as our story comes to a close and some of you may not be sure what you want to happen to yours characters. Well, once this story ends, we will begin a second part to it...either a continuation of this story, a new story, and it can involve our characters(younger or older) and/or brand new characters. I need feedback from all of you for what you'd like to do next. Also, if anyone is having problems figuring out just what to do next, we should really PM each other and get some ideas out in the open amongst ourselves.

    OOC: yes, indeed.

    Dan-Rairen Tadokoro

    don't know what time it is:

    Uggghhh. My mind is starting to stir. I can't move. Forcefields. Out of the corner of my eye, I can see... Lyonne. Is that her name? Yes. I think. My head hurts. Metal surrounds us. Where are we? I can see stars too. I think.

    Figures are walking around. Wearing military clothes. What's going on? I can barely get my thoughts together. I hear mechanical breathing.

    "Greetings, Jedi." It's Vader.

    "I would kill you now, but one of my underlings has put in a request to terminate you himself, especially you, Master Erstad." Da Kun, we both think.

    "I have decided to grant him that. He will be here shortly."

    Where the hell are my weapons?

    Da Kun

    I have been waiting for this moment. I enter the brig and am confronted by the two Jedi. I stare at them for a moment and notice Blitz sees me.

    "There will be no rebellion, we put a stop to that, I was not able to kill all those who were at the meeting but I taught them their actions were futile."

    She stands up and looks straight at me with the calm demeaner of a Jedi.

    "I will let you live for now, but only to see the galaxy turned over to the control of the Sith. Palpatine will soon surrender to the forces of Count Dooku and nobody will know he was behind it all. Enjoy."

    Jedi Master Lyonne Erstad

    12:05 AM

    I'm afraid.
    Not for myself, but for everyone else.
    Not for a planet, a people, but for the universe.
    I stare darkly into Da Kun's cold, unrelenting stare. I'm not thinking about how this happened, mulling over how foolish Dan and I were to have done what we did, wondering what the cost our actions will bring. No, all I can think about is how to get out, how to save people and most of all....how to run Da Kun through the heart with a lightsaber. Silence, only broken by the unsteady rhythm of Darth Vader's breathing. You would think Da Kun was the one within a forcefield being contained as he paces around Dan and I. I can see the hunger in his eyes. My lightsaber is held loosely in his hand, Dan's are being held by a nearby guard. Da Kun turns my lightsaber over in his hands a few times before stopping in front of me. He ignites it and a blue hue casts itself across the room. The light glints off his eyes, making him look even more wild and dangerous looking. I smile, a smile which he sees immediately, and which bothers him.
    "What?"
    He snarls quietly,
    "Are you welcoming your death, Jedi?"
    He finishes as an after thought. I continue to smile, never altering my gaze. His eyes narrow and I finally open my mouth to speak.
    "It wont work."
    I say simply, pausing to see the confusion on his face before continuing.
    "Oh yes, perhaps for months, years more likely you'll be swarming around the galaxy like millions of flies, destroying everything in your path...turning everything dark."
    That brings a smile to his face...foolish man.
    "But it wont last. The Force will shift itself once again to be in balance...good will prevail. I know that now, and that's all that matters. Death is nothing....there is only the Force."
    I close my eyes for a moment before fixing my gaze upon the cold black mask of Darth Vader, the man that betrayed the Jedi, and spelled their downfall.

    OOC: Okay, I'm officially confused. :confused: If Da-Kun took out the rebel meeting, I think we should play it out. Maybe Vash could PM me and we can work out a joint-post to explain everything.

    OOC: Sorry about that, Matt. I mean, it was like dying and we felt like we had to do something. Barb's and my characters were last left unconscious, so we thought a kidnapping was the best way to get this sucker going again. You know, new surroundings. You and Vash should work out a flashback scene, since we weren't around. Okay, thanks!

    Vash is no longer a poster here, which leaves us some very loose ends concerning this RPG. I had conversed with him a while back and we had decided the fate of his character. But the character of Da Kun will now be one that all of us can use in our posts so as to keep the story moving along.

    OOC: And that leaves, who? Players, I mean.

    Dan-Rairen Tadokoro

    3:00 AM

    Lyonne. Ben. She's afraid. I know that look. The Republic is at its knees, falling into death to the Empire. And there's nothing I can do about it. I've been drifting in and out of consciousness for the past two hours. People come and go in front of us, like watching animals ready for the slaughter, like criminals to be crucified, executed. And they always take the time to spit.

    Vader returns, sensing our Force energy our blood. Inside it's making him restless, clawing at him like a rabid dog. Bloodthirst.

    "Young Jedi..." he says. "The Empire would welcome you, your skills, and your power."

    "I'm flattered. You know, I hope your son, if anyone's dumb enough to do that with you anyway, I hope your son gives you the same luxury that I gave my father and kills you." I tell him.

    "I can gladly give death to you. You're just a speck compared to the Dark Side."

    Forcefields bad. I need a plan.

    OOC: The remaining players are as follows:

    Barb Gordon
    Zero Zero Nine
    Super Boy
    JL Man
    Mattashell
    80's Slasher

    6 people still left, and no one besides Zero and myself have been keeping it going. Come on people, let's liven it up. We're ever so close to finishing this first part, and could start on a second if we so choose. Like I said, if you're unsure of how to proceed, PM me and the other players and try and get something worked out.

    IC: Jedi Master Lyonne "Blitz" Erstad

    3:05

    "Leave him alone."
    I say sharply, staring at the horrid black mask that he wears. Anakin has been dead for so long, only this shell, this horrible evil called Darth Vader remains in his stead. Oh Obi-Wan. I can tell Vader is regarding me, staring right through me to my very soul, but he doesn't reply. Da-Kun glances over his shoulder and nods,
    "I want her. Now."
    He says with sick pleasure. Darth Vader nods, motioning his hand towards two guards. One opens up the barrier while the other escorts me out, watching Dan warily. The barrier closes behind me,
    "Master Erstad--"
    Dan begins.
    "Don't worry Dan, I'll be fine."
    Da Kun tosses me my lightsaber, and I grab it by the hilt, twirling it around a few times. That slug touched my saber, I think angrily, gripping it tighter. He pulls out his own lightsaber, igniting it. Our red and blue hues clash against the white titled room as we stand at opposite ends. Dan looks anxious as he watches. I close my eyes, sighing inwardly as I bring the Force closer within me. I need strength, assurance. I recall what Obi-Wan had told me the last time we met, and I remember the hand-guard on my saber. I feel the engravings with my finger for a moment. It's time. Da Kun is positively grinning, absolutely still for a full moment before bursting forth at it. It's begun.

    OOC: It's me and Barb, the Dynamic Duo! :p We need participation :(

    IC:

    Jedi Knight Dan-Rairen Tadokoro

    Jedi... Jedi, Jedi Knight.

    The untouchable, invincible Jedi Knights. How far we have been torn down.

    Cheap trick magicians, prisoners. So quickly, too.

    Our nature is illegal. Our very essence. I think I think too much.

    Unconsciously, I make tools slide a little across the floor. I turn toward Da Kun and Ate Lyonne. Can it finally be to the death this time? I'm tired of him. Please, just kill him. Darth Vader turns to me.

    "Boy, I can still feel your thoughts. No matter how hard you try. Hate is indeed a powerful thing."

    "Then you must know that I hate you." I reply.

    "Of course. Hate is wonderful, especially for one as 'gifted' as yourself."

    He deactivates the forcefield, and I fall to the floor. Through his dark, black mask, and his incessant, rhythmic breathing, he talks again.

    "One last chance. One last chance to prove yourself. To prove yourself to the Jedi legacy. To me, and to the Emperor."

    "How about to myself, Master Vader?" I smirk.

    "Your friend there is about to die. I'm giving you the chance to escape. I let you loose right now. You have to find a way off of this space station."

    "Why would I want to leave with people like you still alive?"

    "That is your decision. Oh, and the Emperor is visiting for a while."

    Emperor. Easy target. House of cards. And they all fall down.

    Jedi Master Lyonne "Blitz" Erstad

    3:42 AM

    I nod subconsciously in response to Dan's thought. Yes, this is it, the moment of truth, fighting for it all and only one of us is going to come out of this still breathing. Blocking the first attack, Da Kun and I trade a few easy moves for a while. Testing each other out, just getting warmed up. With each passing moment we increase the pressure, making more dangerous and life-threatening moves. Always dodging, blocking, parrying. A few close calls, too close. And then it stops. Just a moment to breath as we both break apart from each other. Da Kun lowers his lightsaber a bit, his eyes aglow...we're both breathing a little hard already. Pacing to and fro we continue to eye each other, then spring forward again to continue the duel. I knick him on the shoulder, once, twice, but it doesn't phase him too much. Nor me either as he knicks me. Suddenly we lock sabers together, pushing against each other and going nowhere as sparks fly from our weapons. Da Kun grins nastily and suddenly falls back, catching me off balance and hitting me forcefully in the face. I fall back, using the Force to flip backward and distance myself for a moment or two. Wiping the blood away from my lip and prepare to go at it again.
    "Ready to admit defeat yet, Jedi?"
    Comes his croaking. I smile,
    "Hardly."
    With that we begin anew, this time much fiercer. So much more intense with each new block and attempted hit. Not even noticing how many times are clothes have gotten singed, and not our skin. Now it's my time for the hit, locking sabers for the second time, I bend my knees, lowering myself down to where Da Kun can easily add more pressure. With the Force as my aid, I leap up, thrusting out my foot and catching him in the jaw. He falls. But not for long. He quickly rolls away from me, turning his head to spit some blood to the side.

    Ngun-Nat "Puck"

    The time came for the meeting of minds. The time came for the first meeting of the rebel alliance. There they sit aroung the grand dining table of the main dining hall at the Tobias estate. They are rich men. Much of the population of the galaxy are opposed to the Empire, but it is the rich that have the means to oppose them, and they are mostly concerned with protecting thier fortunes.

    I set down my glass, and stand to address them, I tell everything I know. I tell them of the space consruction I visited. Even though the Jedis back me up, they are laughing, to them I am a drunk, and the Jedi a superstitious cult.

    Boone is standing and telling them I can be trusted when a bolt of lazer blasts through the lock on the door.. Boone falls to the floor. The Jedi spring into action. Bounty hunters are pouring into the room. I take mi blaster from my boot and drop three of them right away. People are screaming everywhere. I duck another blast from behind.

    I shortly sense that the Jedi are over powering them. As the remaining bounty hunters flee, I reconize their commander, it is the Sith Lord that's been troubling us, Da Kun.

    I take a shot at him, but I miss. However, it hits the wall near wim and the debris knocks him from his feet. I Run up to him to point blank range and aim my pistol to take him out.

    "You don't want to kill me." he says. I don't want to kill him. "You're going to sit down for a while." I think I'm going to sit down for a while. He gets to his feet and leaves.

    What am I doing? How could I let him get away like that? Around me the Jedi are helping those who can be helped, most of the council are dead, many more injured.

    Boone is still breathing. I hold him in my arms. He takes an envelope from his pocket, and says, "I keep this with me at all times. It is my last will and testament. I've left everything to your father. The Empire will stop at nothing to destroy this document. You must find a lawyer and deliver this to your father as fast as possible."

    "I will do it, I promise." He dies in my arms.
    ____________________
    Outside I meet with the remaining Jedi. Only one Padawan was killed in the conlict. (OOC: I'm being vague here because I'm not sure who's with me. Somebody please fill me in on which characters are around, and weather thier players are going to post here.) One of the jedi informs me that Dan and Blitz have been captured. They are sensing that they were taken to the construction I viseted earlier.

    He gives me a lightsaber, that belonged to the slain Padawan. He wants me to become his new Padawan. He says it's not to late. I want to, and I am afraid I will fail. I tell him I'll think about it, bu I keep the light saber, it is a beutiful weapon, and I know I could be great with it. He swipes it back from me and says, "Jedi weapons are for Jedi." They agree to accompany me on my journy. I chose a ship that suits me. An older ship. Not as junky as the Jalopy, but nothing flashy either. Just like my attitude toward women, I go for personality over good looks, after all they never last. She's bigger than the Jalopy, and I christen her "The Boat" with a bottle of rum, my last bottle...forever.

    We take off to space and the time has come to make a decision. Do we go straight to my father, or rescue Dan and Blitz. If we do we'll be bringing Boone's will into the Empire's hands, however, some of the Jedi feel we must resue the others before it's "too late."

    Bickering ensues.
