I've been a little out of it these last couple of days folks, sorry about that!  Work has been chaotic, but I hope to have my next post up in the next 24 hours or so!  Time for some cap ship to cap ship carnage!

And Trick, as soon as i work out an angle for the coming battle I'll be contacting ye about a ship to trash!

Okay, my 20th post is up!  I have staked out a Nebulon-B, the Fearsome, to play with.  More chaos with that ship to come!

Things have slowed down a bit lately, but this happens to every story.  Things will pick up soon enough and we can really get this one-sided hammering of our forces battle underway!

Always remember, folks, that even if you don't have any ideas for your own character, that NPC posts are totally fine!  Here's some ideas that I think may be interesting.  Feel free to have a try at these or any other NPC ideas you may have!

1) A Verpine slave of the Imperial Dominion.  The ID are using these poor fools to co-ordinate their battle, and are ensuring their co-operation by intimidating their hive queen.  How do the Verpine feel about this?  They are insectoids after all, and may have a totally strange and unique perspective on their situation.  Do they have any opinions about it, or is 'dont upset the Dominion soldier with a gun to my head' simply on their day's to-do list along with 'pick up groceries' and 'order that new holovid'?

2) A recently freed slave of the Imperial Dominion.  It was made clear in earlier posts that the base on Gwodd LK Nale was built using alien slaves.  Were any of these left behind when the VE took the place?  If so, how have they reacted?  Has the VE liberated them, or kept them incarcerated in case there are spies and double-agents hidden in their midst?  Do the slaves see the VE as heroes, or do they believe the VE to be just as bad as the Dominion?

3) Dominion naval personel.  Always bears repeating that, in a story like this, our enemies are merely reflections of us.  The Dominion wear our uniforms, pilot ships like ours, and even have similar medals.  Keep this in mind when writing for them.  Why are they with the ID and not us?  What really separates us?  Do they truly see us as the enemy, or are they would-be VE personnel but for being on the wrong ship when the Empire fragmented?  Aside from our pro-alien stance, there is not much difference!

Okay, that's just a few ideas for people.  Have a think and get posting!

I really do adore having a brilliant XO. 

Everything Serpent said is right on: little slumps are nothing to worry about, and this story has plenty of plot hooks to allow for diverse NPC posts.  Let's get back to it, folks! 

I should have a short post up by the end of today.  Remember the story's subtitle, everybody, and start writing some deaths!

Aaaand I'm back! Yay!

Got some fighting going, though Grent's fighter is in a bad way. Will he survive? Find out next time on Counterpunch: DEATH!

Lol @ the spoiler alert. 

Okay, folks: another quick post to give you all more information.  Most important in there: Trick's orders, if/when he can get them out to the fleet, are simply to retreat to Bloodmoon as carefully and methodically as we can.  There we can regroup, share with each other the "best practices" for dealing with the interference, and then return to relieve the force we leave behind on Gwodd LK nale.

The parameters are pretty well-established for this fight, now, and as Serpent pointed out, if you aren't feeling up to a PC post for whatever reason, there are also some rich NPC options to explore.  Let's swing back from this little slump we've collectively had, people, and stay on target to make this the most successful story in VEN history!

Glad you liked my suggestions, Trick!  And good to see you and Gur getting right back into things after your Leaves.

Now, alas, it is my turn to be on Leave.  I got up my 21st post just now (just a short one, but its something) and now I must take a break to sort stuff in RL.  See you all in a week or so!

I plan to have a nice length post up soon from the POV of CR90 Defiance.

She's going to sustain injuries, but limp back to the fleet safely. Is the plan, at least ....

Ok, finally got another little one up.  It's another "history book from the future" POV, describing the first big VE capital ship to be destroyed in this battle: the Dreadnaught-class Peremptory.

Other info in that post: the comparatively open area (of the Sollamens Asteroid field) in which we're fighting is called the "Sahvoh Expanse," and history apparently refers to this skirmish as the "First Battle of the Pulsar," which suggests there will be at least one more after this one.

In order to get to that Second Battle of the Pulsar, though, we need to press on with this story!  I know we've hit a bit of a lull, generally, and I know that for some of us in particular it's a busy time of year, and that others of us are dealing with some pretty serious real life issues.  Trust me, I know personally how tough it can be to bang out 500 words, sometimes!  My life has decided to become a bit of a mess, this week, for example.

But, with that said, I'd like to ask everyone who CAN get a post up, to do so.  Momentum has a way of building upon itself, if we can just get it started.  Despite what's going on with me irl - or, indeed, because of it all - I'm going to try to post a few more short posts like this last one, to keep the story going, in the coming days.  Please, join me if/when you can. 

Sometimes, a few hundred words in a galaxy far, far away is as good as a tiny vacation, and every post gets us closer to this story's end.  And this story's end means promotions and awards, a bit of a rest, and then, the much-anticipated club-wide Chapter 9! 

EDIT: Good to hear, Gurlanin!  Have fun with the motorbikin', and can't wait to read your post!

Introducing the Defiance, one of the 2nd fleet's CR90 corvettes, designed for anti-starfighter and patrol duty. Here, we see her barely escape from the combat to a nearby asteroid field, sustaining damage in the process. The CO attempts to maintain order and return fire against the fighters and bomber sent to finish them off.

Only the beginning part of the Defiance's story. I will write more about her struggle later. She is now separated (partially) from the rest of the fleet. Will she make it? Will she retreat to hyperspace before the ID destroy her?

I am back from the grave. Goodness. I feel like I've been gone for ages.

Got a post up from Thatcher's POV. Nobody has really written about friendly fire yet and this battle calls for it. I left the info about which Strill peep was hit unspecified so that anyone can jump in with their take on it. My next post should be from Makenna's POV.

Sorry for the terribly long gap between posts. XD I know I apologize too much about stuff like that but I feel like it anyway.

Another one!  Let's try to wrap up this battle ASAP, folks, so we can move on in the storyline.  Get a couple combat posts up - even short ones - and then we'll transition to the last stage.

Oooh.  That was my 150th career story post.

Hey, Cabby.    Short(ish) version: We invaded the Sollamens Asteroids, and landed troops to take the big main asteroid base, Gwodd LK nale.  There was surprisingly little resistance from Dominion forces.  So, we landed a bunch of troops at the base, along with three squadrons (Strill included), while Second Fleet set out deeper into the asteroid field to force a confrontation with the ID fleet.

Then, the pulsar in the system went into its "active" period of its regular cycle, spitting out a ton of EM radiation, scrambling communications and sensors.  Blind, mute, and deaf, Second Fleet is now being attacked by the remaining strength of the Dominion Navy.

So, write about how horrible/surprising it is to fight in those circumstances, and eventually, either realize the Fleet wants to retreat, or else just make the decision to return to the Adjudicator yourself.  When we've been sufficiently bloodied, we'll retreat, temporarily leaving our people on Gwodd LK nale alone to face counterinvasion.  Clear?

And my 10th post is up, again from the Defiance's POV. I've left the actual ships that make up the ID task force mentioned in my post out, mainly because I'm not sure what ships the ID have, and also to let someone else write about them if they have certain ships in mind.

I will get a Strill/Grent POV post up soon, but I'm rather enjoying writing the Defiance story ... maybe I became a starfighter pilot to hastily? :P

Nice ones, Gurlanin and Maroy.

Gur, one quick distinction: Morse code doesn't exist, in the Star Wars milieu.  There's "blink" codes and "flash" codes, that are clearly stand-ins for Morse, but no Morse itself.  It's not a huge deal, but if you have the inclination, it might be a worthwhile edit to substitute something else for the proper noun Morse.

Other than that, great post, which'll transition nicely into my next one.
