Description

Unlike most competitions where the goal is to succeed as a squadron, this competition reflects the efforts of the more dynamic groups- the flights.  The goal of each flight is to create a dynamic storyline that makes sense and builds off of each character as well as adds interest to the story as a whole.  Furthermore, reports from each flight member and Flight Lead automatically earns points and goes to overall grading in the end.

Rules

The rules are simple- post as often as you can but make them organized, understandable and entertaining.  You must build off of members in your own flight- other characters are not entirelly your concern.  Furthermore, it is necessary that you keep your facts straight- thus everyone will have to write out in this thread when they've killed off an enemy in the story or a certain event has occurred, changing the story.  This is an attempt to organize stories through flights, but hopefully it'll lead to the organization of larger groups like this one.  Prizes will be handed out to those who show the greatest effort to get thier flight moving effectivelly, and further prizes will be given to those who actually succeed.  Any questions, comments or concerns may be stated here- this is where we get all of our questions answered- but this is not an area for chat.  Very specifically, this needs to be kept factual so it can be useful.  The below portion will be edited as the story progressed to keep things straight so people don't have to peel through this entire thread to find answers.

Story Completion

I.  Introduction
  A.  Shazam (Wing and Nazgul Commander) as well as Will (Kaph Squadron Commander) have been breifed on the fact thier group will be sent to a region of space at the rim of the VEN. 
  B.  They expect to see little out here, but a breifing is to be given to the members of everyone in the Wing and each person assigned a TIE Advanced Fighter. 
  C.  Though currently aboard the Corellian Corvette Flight, Phoenix Wing will launch on thier own to thier destination and be picked up by the local Naval Force- they are to stay there for two months.

Background information

The VE is currently pushing to the galactic core, and though this has been happening for some time now, this is a particularly strong shove...  Thus we're low on forces, but that doesn't mean we can just leave the VE space unprotected- that's where wings like our own come in.  Our jobs, though unsespecting of any actual action, are to cover every part of our space so that no one can possibly make it through.  This means we are spread very, very thin...

Now- Nazgul finished a mission off the planet Messari three weeks ago- the planet was supposed to be used to mine a highly reactive gas that would have been used for fuel- but the NR arrived and forced the Nazguls out along with a strike cruiser.  Now, attempts have been made to withdraw gas under the noses of the NR- quick jumps into the system to withdraw some samples and take a look at it.  Though the ships escaped the NR forces around Messari, showed back up...

(I'll edit this when I'm coherant )

This is the mini-plot for Kaph Flight 2...

Recent changes in Kaph Squadron have caused personal issues for the members of flight 2. The flight has seen many changes since its last combat mission. It is Than Sion's first mission as flight leader and first mission in a long time that he doesn't have Demonic as his wingman. Cyleaf Aehait has filled that position after loosing many combat partners to a variety of causes. Dredj is fresh out of the Academy and this will be his first taste of real combat.

Will this flight be able to bond together as an invincible force, or will its quirks destroy it?

I have been assigned to brief the Navy on all you will need to know about the story at this point...


Introduction


As you have already been told, the majority of the Vast Imperial forces are pushing toward the core.  All that is left is a stretched thin, defense task force.  Phoenix Wing just happens to be part of that force.

Nazgul and Kaph are reassigned to a location in the outer rim.  We are issued TIE Advanced, which among other things actually have a hyper drive.  When we arrive there, the base we have been assigned to is on high alert.  This is due to the fact that a near by planet has come under attack.  Since they are unwilling to take on the enemy force themselves, they immediately tell us to deal with it.

We jump into system, but it is already too late.  Most of the cities have been leveled and there are smoldering bodies everywhere.  We were able to trace the enemy's exit vector.  Since Art's ship the Doashim is closest to this location, they make the jump to take on the force responsible for all the damage.  He quickly figures out that he is outnumbered and out gunned, so he heads for the near by asteroid field as cover from the capital ships.  By the time we get there, he is under heavy fire from enemy fighters.  We neutralize the fighter problem and then push back the capital ships.  The later will take the combined efforts of the Doashim and our selves.

This will end up isolating one of the Corellian Corvettes which becomes our newest objective.  Art sends half a squadron in the hopes of disabling it with their ion cannons and taking it over for our cause.  This task will be up to them since the Doashim will have its hands full with beating back the other big ships.  The whole time the enemy flag ship, a MC40a, will be hanging back in order to avoid friendly fire issues either way.  When we finally disable the Corvette, Art will send five assault transports to deal with the crew inside.  A couple of these will be destroyed on their way there. 

The take over operation will be a big part of this story.  You could land inside the enemy hanger and possibly help the marines or you could push back enemy fighters or you could run around with a mop in order to create a distraction aboard the ship, be creative in this section.  You are here in the first place to cause as much damage to the enemy as possible and to be a distraction.

When the ship is captured, Art will send a team to fly it.  Things are still hot outside, so Arturus will be plagued by the feeling that he is sending these men to their deaths.


The Enemy


**Ship Commanders**

Cog Obili--Flag Ship MC40a Xuthus

Age: 51
Gender: Male
Species: Human
Build: Medium, muscular
Hair: Dark, graying
Facial Hair: Goatee
Eyes: Green
Skin: Black

The leader of this faction of the NR insurgents; he is an intelligent, kind leader who has the respect and loyalty of the men under him.  Having a humble beginning as a mill worker, events that had conspired related to the original Empire had caused him to join the sorry lot of Rebels.  He quickly went up in the ranks to the point where he is today.  He fights against the Imperial Remnants in the name of justice for not only the pain that they had caused him, but the pain that we have supposedly caused the whole galaxy.  He is known to become distant at times because of flash backs of these painful events.

Presi Onan--Strike Cruiser Jotunheim

Age: 42
Gender: Female
Species: Human
Build: feminine but in a real person kind of way, not super model.
Hair: Blonde
Eyes: Blue
Skin: White

Obili's second in command, she is colder than her commanding officer.  Obili made here number two because she is very good at getting others to do stuff the right way with little error.  Little is known about her past, it is almost like she came out of the wood work and right into the ranks of the enemy.  In her early years of duty to the Rebels, she was an X-Wing pilot who quickly made it to command positions because of the skill mentioned above.  Her motives for being a Rebel or for even joining Obili on his crazy crusade are also unknown.  She is known for "colorful" mood swings between being completely cold to being angry at anything that moves or makes a sound.   


Yalno Lent --Corellian Corvette Hugin

Age: 37
Gender: Male
Species: Mon Calamari
Build: Average for his species
Eyes: Big and yellow
Skin: Salmon

Joined up when the majority of the other Mon Calamari did; his hate for the Empire is something to be reckoned with.  Luck has it that with his reckless ways is also the ability to calculate risks well.  He has been known to take many successful ones in combat over the years.  It is not surprising that when Obili confronted him about doing missions behind the back of the growingly bureaucratic NR, he joined without any hesitation.  He has no difficulty working, or even leading, others because he is sociable with those that are not his enemy. 

Warn Sliech--Corellian Corvette Munin

Age: 25
Gender: Male
Species: Human
Build: Average
Hair: Sandy Blonde
Eyes: Brown
Skin: White

The youngest ship captain in Obili's misleading campaign, most wouldn't even consider him for the position.  He is young, not very experienced, and has somewhat of a cocky mouth.  Though for some reason, Obili sees something great in him.  He joined the Rebel Alliance in the final years of the Emperor in the name of avenging his parents' deaths.  He is found more often eating with the enlisted mean instead of the officer mess.  He joined up with Obili as a flight leader but was promoted by the older man to a ship captain quite quickly.  Some would argue that it was a stupid mistake that would cost them in the future.

Just for positioning clarity, the Doashim is entering on the opposite side of the fleet you detected and are approaching.  Near where I jump in is the asteroid field and it will be located on the other side of my ship.  So for example if the enemy fleet was on the starboard of the ship, the asteroid field is to port.

Also, it sounds like you are quite far away from the enemy fleet.  About how far are you?

I think we're on the same page.  The rebel cruisers are between you and the planet, and Phoenix Wing is on the other side of the planet.  That sound about right to you?

Alright, here is Nazgul Flight three`s plot.

We`re going to have an internal conflict going between all three members, starting off between Trevor and Raigen. This conflict isn` really noticed until they start flying, and Raigen performs some sort of 'super-hero' move, which gets on Trevor`s nerves as it endangers not only Raigen, but Tokijin or possibly all three as well.

He first tells Raigen to stop, but after Raigen refuses, Trevor becomes somewhat rude, and after Raigen performs another move, Trevor yells at him again. This is when Tokijin cuts in, telling Trevor to back off and leave Raigen alone. This further bothers Trevor, but he shuts up, keeping his thoughts to himself. Because of the anger he has contained inside, he takes on a much more agressive flying style, far from his norm and much more dangerous to himself.

Raigen on the other hand, realizes he has frusterated his FL and begins trying to fly 'properly', but this doesn`t seem to work to well for him either, as he is not used to it and finds himself flying poorly.

Tokijin is affected because suddenly Trevor will not talk to her over the comm, and Raigen doesn`t seem to talk to her either, leaving her isolated from the flight.

This situation comes fully visible when Tokijin gets into a dangerous situation (missile lock, very good enemy pilot, ect) and because she cannot get out of it herself, it forces Trevor and Raigen to accept eachothers flight styles and give her a hand.

The same conflict will show up again though, although this time not in fighters, but after landing, with a slight tussle between Raigen and Trevor, which is broken up by some techs. The two, still mad at eachother, storm away, and unluckily for Trevor, Tokijin had seen what happened. It`s her turn to be mad at Trevor, and she thinks differently of him for a while, before changing her mind and convincing Trevor to appologise.

I still need to work on some parts of it..but...i dunno

Nazgul: Flight 1

The make-up of Flight 1 consist of three commanders, all of decent rank and pretty exceptional experience. The commander, Shazam, doesn't like to see other people think they have the upper-hand in terms of knowledge or experience- some things Amason naturally possesses that will be irritating to Shazam. Furthermore, when the decision to send out troops or members or the Doashim's staff is made, Shazam and the judge may have a small feud. In spite of it, Shazam's order is put through and men will be lost- Shazam knows it but feels it the best option. Jaden, on the other hand, is trying to cool things down, but at the same time has problems being on the outside of the battle in a fighter- he'll be a commanding role in getting the flight aboard a ship. He has experience with his uncle in defending a ship, so he's going to have some good insight here and perhaps equilibrium will be found between the two warring commanders after they listen to the one not fighting for supremacy.

Shazam, I was actually thinking (did I not tell you about this?) that we should score the flights using a points per player ratio.  If a flight of 4 makes 20 posts and a flight of 3 made 15 they would be tied (5 posts per played).  This eliminates the disparity caused by uneven numbers in each flight.

Nazgul Flight two story

Darius is now in a commanding position...uh oh.  DJ234 isn't very...pleased being under Darius, but he knows that Darius is well qualified to be in such a position.  Where DJ is familiar and knows Darius better, Hunter has almost no experience with him at all.  Just the short mission at Messari where their flight had success...well at least Darius and Hunter did.  Hunter has, is and already is learning from his mistakes and getting a feel for Darius...unique personality.  Darius is going to be very demanding, very particular, and very strict within his flight.  He is not afraid to smack on of his members around (though he would restrain himself...I think).  Darius demanding personality and command is going to frustrating to both Hunter and DJ, but they will survive, and they will excel far beyond expectations.

Alright, after reading up on the story info, I wanted to propose a question.  Once we get to that part of the story, I take my fighter down, I don't care who with, and assist the marines in some sort, then take command of one of the Corellian Corvettes.

Any objections?

Not possible because it is not technically feasible.  Sorry.  All available docking areas will be occupied by assault transports.  Stay in your fighters please.

Update


Discussion Work

Aiight- we haven't actually been doing this as I liked and I'm going to enforce this from here on out- you must make a breif on every post you make on this thread.  It only needs to be a sentence, maybe two or three long so that it includes what you did, very, very basically.  That should include plot movement, character apifinies and any deaths, either allied or enemy. 

Also, despite the fact that we're only going to force plot breifs from now on, we still need a count from everyone on how many people they've taken out.  It's gotten far from accurate and we're just shooting things down for the hell of it- lets get organized.

If these request are not fulfilled, that flight will receive no points for thier work.  So- do take me seriously because we'll be sure to check   So- breif on every post from here on out and a count of all fighters lost or damage taken: that must be done.  Technically, if we do this on further stories, there should be at least as many post as there are on the actual story.  The point of all of this is to keep track of things and also to lower the actual reading someone who is trying to catch up must do.

Reports

Reports are still due every week, folks   What I'd like to see, just so we can be somewhat accurate, is a compilation of all the reports into one report by the Squadron commander.  That means, in order for reports to count toward points, every flight collects reports sent to them, those FLs make a report with all thier FMs below thiers to the SC, and the SC combines his/her flight with that of the squadrons and they send it to the WC: thas me, btw.  I realize people could cheat at that and whatnot, but I suppose I just trust you...  So- that's on a weekly basis.  That or we can make threads for each Flight, or for a squadron and thier reports all together- either way is fine by me, but we need to see proof that these are getting in, and something tells me the SC won't be hastled to make a report for every person in thier squadron- so lets get those in.

Plot Work

We started this story under the assumption that the corvettes and what not would be accesable to all craft, and I did know that most corvettes didn't have hangers.  However, I was going to make it a write off that they were modified with expanded interior to make room souly for fighters- that doesn't quite work though.  Apparently, as these boarding crews are trying to take the ship, they will have had to of landed and occupied most of the space.  Sure, a select few could be thrown into the mix by accidently crass landing and what not or being pulled in by a tractor beam, but its best we find a different way of going about this.

Instead- we're going to add in a single, larger asteroid that started on the outskirt of the asteroid formation.  That asteroid is going to conveniently place itself within the firing range of a normal battle ship- that's when it surprisingly is equipped with weaponry.  The reason these folks have rendeveoded here is because of the fact that it serves as a refueling and re-equipping station for them.  The asteroid we're going to deal with will be of some significane, we'll say about the size of a maurader corvette in size.  The gun armament isn't great- make it seem dangerous but nothing that can't be avoided.  Also- the job of the asteroid before we arrived was surveillance on the system- we don't check in-system asteroids nearly as much because its almost impossible for a ship to get this far in and remain undetected.  Never the less- its here and its accessable.  Its supposed to be easilly accessed for larger ships, so expect a large landing bay: this is where we go battlefront on thier butts

Now- in review: we can let some people get aboard ships, but its going to be a greater advantage if we landed our people on this asteroid while the troops occupying the corvette are working.  We can get rid of the asteroid via self-destruct, explosives, damage... Whateva.  OR TAKE IT OVER!  Get your own ideas

I'm not gonna be home this weekend, so Demonic's gonna do the squadron report for me. If i get back before Sunday, I'll attend the VE meeting. But I know for sure I won't be able to attend the Kaph meeting, so he'll be running that as well.

Just to throw my report out in the open:

Almost everything and everyone's doing great. The story's progressing, made a couple posts on it this week. If i get time, I'll write up another post. Still haven't seen anything from dredj. I'd like Than to take care of that as soon as possible. Etan needs work on his writing. I'll help him with it once i get back, meanwhile, Demonic and the rest of Kaph can help him as well.

Thanks for listening.

Something that might help:  Corvettes do have a hangar with enough space for one medium-sized fighter, such as any TIE variant, but an Assault Gunboat would be to large to fit.  On the other hand, a transport could dock with the Corvette, and even cut it's own entry hole.

They also do have docking hatches for transports though.  Once it is disabled (and the ship with the young impetuous captain is the one that is going to be disabled), docking space isn't an issue.  Nothing will stop the transports from docking.

I was going to send my XO and some of my junior officers to command it...  That's at least how Shazam and I had thought it would go when the initial planning occured.

Uhhhhh...  I wasn't aware of that.  Or that Jaden would be taking control of the ship, lol.  As of right now Jaden, your character doesn't actually have any reasoning for taking control of this ship and probably wouldn't do it much good considering his lack of experience with such a ship.  Furthermore, its important we seperate our characters from we, the people writing about them.  Though i'm TO of the Academy right now, Shazam is not- he's just a pilot.  He's wing commander, yes, but only because a wing commander can be a squadron commander as well.  That's my two cents there.

However, if you guys would like to work it out- sure, go for it: I honestly have no problem with what you want to do.  Anyone can do so if they wish- no need to get permission from me, just try to keep it somewhat in the realm of realism and be concious of surrounding ideas.  Also, the corvette must remain intact for some time in order for it to be of any use to us, correct?  We could maybe kill it off in the end, which would be an extra hit to Arturus, but again- that's up to you guys I suppose.  As for the asteroid idea- anyone can post about a large mass on the outskirts of our battle and we pick it up on radar.  When we go to investigate, it opens fire- why should we bother with it?  Tis the home of thier correspondence and rendevous, its how they've been spying on us.  It might be a good final target or something we can take out all the while- anyone can do that as well. 

You'll not I'm not being very specific on any of my ideas- thas cause I'd like other people to develope them and make them thier own, or create stories off to the side if they wish.  Please, take some liberties people, I won't get angry.

Post Summary

Shazam has just corresponded with Arturus; the two of them agree that back-up won't arrive on time and its necessary to comandeer another ship, while forcing the other enemy ones back.  This means Art will use the Doashim to lay down fighter and push back the MC-40, the strike cruiser and the other corvette while we capture this other corvette.  Shazam and Flight 1 take out three X-wings while in the outskirts of the battle, still in an asteroid field.  The fourth escapes back. 

That means Ive killed off three X-wings in all of my post combined- let's get a talley and discover how many squadrons should be remaining.  Also- have we taken any losses?  I forgot to talk about NPCs but maybe we can add some in.

Furthermore- the strike cruiser: has that been taken out?  It was edited by Art and I'm not sure if its to be further edited or not, so I didnt' mention anything about it- thoughts?

Maybe I'm wrong.  For some reason I thought I remembered someone saying that the corvette would be destroyed.  Art, what're you plans for the CRV?

I tagged three X-Wings in my last post.

The strike cruiser is still very much in play as are all rebel cruisers.  The post about them being destroyed must and will be edited (if it hasn't been already).

As for the corvette we commandeer, I had intended for it to be destroyed (yes with some of my officers onboard).  It will be destroyed when it joins the Doashim to engage the other cruisers.  How has not been determined but it will be destroyed.

Well, my flight has destroyed about a flight of X-wings and a couple A-wings if I'm not mistaken.  Now, I've put the asteroid into the story (its very brief and is lacking description and detail, but I'll get to that tomorrow, whether someone posts or not), if somebody wants to come to the conclusion that the asteroid is of great value and the reason for the rendezvous, go ahead, but I plan on putting my flight in it.  If that's not going to work, let me know.

I'll be getting my report in late tomorrow night btw.

Rock On!
