Kuroishi watched as the last weather station was taken over.  Rather then let all of the stations be destroyed Kuroishi had plans for some pranks. "Weather station Alpha we need a report so that we may launch fighters."  The comm cracked to life. "I'm sorry but due to a strike at the weather buearuea there will be no weather for the forseeable future."  Kuroishi replied into the comm. If he had the ability to make absolutely no weather he would but he'd have to settle for complete confusion. Kuroishi reworked the computer systems.  For this operation to work he needed to allow most of the fighters based on the planet to actually make it into space.  But for now he was satisfied to make the enemy command staff very confused. "Next target the garrison station we got some people to break out of prison and reequip."  Kuroishi shouted as he left the computer terminal. This was going to be a long campaign.

    "We have to make it to the ops room quiclk" Raziel shouted. He had prepared the ops room and he knew it was the only place they could defend long enough for the VE back-up to arrive.     Raziel could hear the rebels outside the Ops room now, in advance he pulled out his last grenade, a flash and primed it.     "Halt!" he shouted, he knew the rebels had heard him shout and would head their way. He bounced the flash off a wall and heard the pop as it went off.     Wraiths and DK sped around the corner straight into a mass of 20 shocked rebels milling around. Raziel drew his long slender combat knives...not wanting to waste ammo. In seconds the squad were dead and the entrance to the ops was clear...for now. Already Raziel's keen ears heard the sound of rebel pursuit.     "In the ops room, quick!"     The Wraiths sprinted the corridor to the ops, but Epic at the back of the group had to dove through the portal before blaster fire slammed into the door that closed behind him.     "Ok so now we're trapped?" asked cosmic, eying them curiously. He looked better than he had before, but he would have to fight anyway.     "That door won't hold" Argon remarked. He simply wanted to see what Raziel had planned. Raz had learned how to read peoples emotioned, but Viper seemed perfectly calm somehow.     The door shook as heavy fire hit it, and just as suddenly ended. Raziel knew men were coming to place charges now.     He had one more trick though.     "Epic will you be kind enough to slip a grenade under the door. I need another minute so make those engineers planted the C4 die.     "Cosmic, you know the system. I want all shutters closed and all lights out. I want the place locked down and in complete darkness. That way the rebels should get split up and contained for now. Arkanian, go into that box at the back, in their are night vision goggles. Sniper, the box on the left is ammunition."     Epic made the door slide 10cm up from its position and rolled a grenade under ot before slamming it shut again. The engineers on the other side were suprised indeed as they were blown apart.     Raziel knew it wouldnt take them long to rally and take the ops room's single door down.     Goggles were handed out and suddenly everything went black. There was a clang as every blast door, passage way and shutter slammed closed, then there was just drakness.     There was a whine as goggles were activated. Raziel regarded the spectacle of 10 sets of green eyes looking at him from around the room.     He activated his own and his eyes adjusted to the green/grey image that he could now see. He laughed as he heard the rebels outside panicking.         "Lets go! Epic open the door, its time to clear out the bilding."     The rebels were indeed panicking as they found themselves cut off from everyone else and plunged into darkness. Groups across the whole HQ were cut off from one another and The rebels outside were shout out. They could have gotten in, but were too concerned with Demi Wraiths platoon bearing down on them.     All the rebels outside the ops room saw were a few sets of green eyes appearing followed by blaster bolts screaming past them. Having no defence they firing blindly, hitting one another more than anything else. Soon, they were all dead.     And so it continued, The wraiths, DK's and Cosmic went through the whole building taking out each individual pocket of troops with ease. The only group that presented a problem was a group of soldiers with IR vision masks and torches.   ----------------------- SL/1SGTRaziel/4SQD/1COMP/1BAT/1RGT/Tadath/VEA/ {EW1} Squad Leader - Squad4 Wraiths

One hour later, the building was completely under the control of the VE special/black ops squads. They had three wounded, including Argon who had been shot in the leg but his fur had taken most of the power from the shot. Despite the offer from the VEHC of a nice command post behind the lines, Raz and Argon decided that the newly captured building would serve as their command center. This was due to the fact that, with the defences their troops were setting up, it would be almost unassailable, and the fact that it already had a massive comm setup. Argon stood on the opposite side of the battle map from Raz, who was moving pieces on it intently, trying to size up the situation. "That was fun,"he said,"we should do it more often." "Do what?"asked Raz, looking up. "Take command centers,"replied Argon,"it screws the hell out of any plan they might have." Raz spared a second to look at him and then turned back to the battle map shaking his head. By nightfall(three hours), the Wraiths and Fish had set up the defences for their new base, the SLs had a plan. The main source of help was Fury sending three supply vehicles filled with weapons, ammo, explosives, and even shoulder launched missles. The Wraiths and Dread Knights were back in action.

OOC: Slightly before Viper's post The rebel troopers swung torches in the eyes of the VE troops, overloading their senses temporarily. While the VE were busily ducking and switching off goggles, someone had the presence of mind to toss out a scrambler grenade. This had a negative effect on any active electronic circuits. By the time it went off, the VE troops were okay as they had all switched theirs off in a knee-jerk reaction. When they came to their senses, seconds later, they put them back on. They saw the rebel troops shining their torches around, one alighted on a VE trooper, and they aligned their guns. As they did so, several of the Wraiths pulled the trigger. The rebels in front dropped, and soon the ones behind did. The squads reached an intersection in the corridors on the lower floor. Raziel signalled from the to split up. Viper and Fish took the leftmost fork. Minutes later, the building was cleared. Raziel radioed to Cosmic to switch the lights back on and raise the blast doors, the Wraiths and Knights congregated back in the Ops room, where each trooper was given two power packs from the stash there. "Right," said Cosmic, "I'm still not up to combat, so I'll stay here and provide support and intelligence, though from the look of it, Demi Wraith is having a ball out there." "Well, he's pushing them into the building, I intend to take the Wraiths and push them into Demi Wraith. You in, Knights?" "Shall we kill a lot of people, or shall we just sit here?" siad Viper, "Kill people." "Let's go." The two squads charged out into a scene of chaos. The smooth steelcrete of the courtyard and plaza were gone, replaced by a field of jagged boulders and dirt. There were squads of rebel troopers crouched behind several of them, their backs to the HQ, firing at something beyond. As they watched, one of the chunks exploded in a shower of debris as a tank round hit it. Bodies were lifted into the air to land raggedly on the tattered ground. Raziel signalled a fifty-fifty split. They were to circle the building, kill anything not in a VE uniform, and meet back here. Viper and Fish moved off together, rifles in hand, killing anything that moved. They saw ahead of them an area slightly less beaten up, and with only a few rebel troopers lurking there. "Demi Wraith, come in, this is Argon Viper," Viper said into the comm. "Roger, Viper, what's up?" was the reply. "We're going to create a breach in their lines on the west side of the building, if we can break out, we can start herding them around." "Roger that, I'm sending a few more troops over." With that, Viper and Fish opened up killing four rebels in the first salvo, and four more on the second. Over the rubble they could see stormtroopers with Raiders patches fighting on the other side. Suddenly, the gap opened and they were fighting side-by-side. The rebels tried to run backwards, gathering a following. They were soon standing in a ragged circle as Stormtroopers and Storm Commandos closed around them. Demi Wraith spoke up on the megaphone. "Rebel troopers, you are surrounded and have nowhere to run. Throw down your weapons and surrender." They did the stupid thing - they opened fire. Fish saw a number of stormtroopers drop with holes in their shiny white armour, but after the return volley, only four rebels remained standing. They threw their blaster rifles to the floor and raised their hands. A ragged cheer went up from the VE troops.   ----------------------- Ramon Stonefish "How can we say we are protectors when we are more feared than that which we defend against?!" --Lucien, the First Fallen.

OOC: ok Raiders, get posting, it can't be just Shadow, Grizzly and myself. Otto and Shadow had flown about 200 meters from where they were attacked. Otto had sent a distress throught the Force. He wondered who would come. The Rebels were already on ther way. Vox and Shadow set up their large guns, and fired on the few Rebels that were in range, and took them out easily. Suddenly Otto felt a tremer through the Force. It was Jedi, telling him that they were coming.   "Shadow, helps comin man." Otto said as he turned to Shadow after taking out another Rebel       "Thank God." said Shadow All of a sudden, Shadow heard the low hum of speeder bikes. He tapped Otto on the shoulder, and turned. Just then 5 speeder bikes came flying over a small hill, and fired on the closest Rebel troopers. Otto swung his rifle over his heavy armor piercing blaster over his shoulder and ran towards the group of Rebels nearest to he and Shadow.   "Shadow, get on that STAP, and don't get hit!" ordered Otto "Yessir!" screamed Shadow The speeder bikes were doing a good job of takin out the Rebel forces. Otto dodged many blaster bolts. He ran to the nearest Rebel, about 3/4 the size of Otto, who was 6'4. Otto pulled out his Sat'skar Sword and thrusted it into the gut of the scum. As the body was falling he jumped up to the top of him and jumped off to the next Rebel, and slicecd his head off. He was a bit too far to jump to the next one, and pulled out his 8 guage shotgun and blasted his torso, practically vaporizing it. Otto turned around when a blast sped past his head, taking out another Rebel. It was Jedi on his speeder bike.     "Nice shot Jedi," exclaimed Otto "It's good to see you." "Need a lift?" asked Jedi     "Hell yeah man." Otto hopped onto the back of the speeder bike and kept his shotgun armed. Jedi took out the few Rebels that were in front of him, as Otto fired on the ones on the side. They both took out about 5 more. These Rebels weren't exaclty the best trained, for they went down easily. Otto turned to Jedi and asked,   "Ya think you can get me into that compound?" pointing towards the small building "I need to introducee myself to a new "friend""   "Sure Otto, I think I know what you're talking about." agreed Jedi. They flew in and shot what ever Rebels were in the way. In the center of the compound, there weren't many gaurds, all the troops had apparently been sent out to fight. The only gaurds were placed infront of the main door. Otto hopped off and fired his shotgun, taking them out before they even raised their blasters. Otto burst through the door, with Jedi taking up the rear. They ran down the hall to the door marked "Commander Hugh Jazz". Jedi looked at the sign and smirked.   "Wow, that's funny, who would name their kid tha..." laughed Jedi   "Shh, I want to savour this," whispered Otto "Watch this." Otto then pushed on the door and charged in. Jazz was sitting at his desk. He looked up in fear and gulped.   "Hugh Jazz I prozume?" asked Otto "Yes, and you must be SGT Vox." said Jazz as he squirmed in his chair. Otto's dander sence spiked alittle. He swung out his Ryyk Kerarthorr Blades, and gracefully hopped onto the tabel, and swung the blades to take off the Commanders head, before he could even pull the blaster he had hidden in his desk. He turned to Jedi, and they walked out of the compound, Otto turned and placed a small explosive that he had found on the speeder bike in the main fuel room. They ran to the speeder bike and as they flew away, Otto pressed the detination button, and watched as the building blew sky high. Shadow flew in to blow two troopers off their feet. Just as he turned towards the compound to catch up with Otto and Jedi, the building went up in a blaze. He stopped short and blasted another Rebel. He looked up in fear that his squadies has been in the explosion. As he watched, the speeder bike that Otto and Jedi were on could be seen flying from the blaze. The remaining Rebels screamed in terror and fled. The obvious second in command, now first screamed   "Retreat, retreat!!!!!" The troops ran back into the mines, most being blasted before they could even get with in a few meters. The rest were blown by small explosives being thrusted into the mines. Otto, Jedi and Shadow flew back to re join the fight at the HQ.

Cosmic was now completely healed of his wounds.  The Rebels were not completely destroyed from inside the Army Headquarters.  There was only a few squadron of troops outside the HQ. Cosmic quickly ran towards the Main Ops Center and headed right for the Defense terminal. Once there, he quickly activated the Facility Defense Armor.  All of the windows were quickly blocked off and replaced with a very strong metal that was very difficult to penetrate. Cosmic left the Main Entrance still open, so the Imperial could fight or make the HQ a haven if they needed to. Cosmic walked out of the Main Ops Center and towards the Main Entrance. Once there, he looked outside.  The rebel squads were falling like fly's, however, there were a couple of hover-tanks. Cosmic watched as the Wraith squadron repelled the invading Rebels with great ease. Cosmic himself ran out with Force Speed and headed for the nearest hover-tank. He quickly jumped on it and activated his lightsaber.  He quickly cut open the hatch and killed the driver.  He then slipped inside and familiarized himself with the controls.  He then stopped the tank and took aim at the other hover-tank.  He fired a laser blast and destroyed the hover-tank.  A huge fireball errupted, but the Rebels pressed on forward, fighting against the fury of the Wraith Squad...

Argon was standing in front of a newly cleared area of the battlefield, Cos' landmines had worked wonders when combined with his and Fish's blasters. Suddenly, a tank loomed in the area. Thinking quickly, Argon tossed a block of explosive onto the front of the vehicle and ducked behind a barrier. Only a violent tug on his mind stopped him from pressing the detonator. He reached out to the vehicle, it was Cos. He got out of hiding and ran over to remove his explosive as Cos came out steaming. He was going to get a lecture...

    Raziel went about clearing all the rebel bodies out of the HQ. If they were going to use it as a command cetre they wouldnt want to place stinking of rot.     With the help of his squad the gruesom task was done in about 2 hours. After which they all thoroughly needed a wash.     They passed the war room, where Demi-wraith and Viper were talking heatedly about what they needed to do now.     30 minutes later the Wraiths were done cleaning up and Raz set off to find the current platoon leader. It took Raziel to find Demi wraith striding up and down a corridor like some strategist formulating the next move.     "They didn't break." he stated flatly as if Raziel knew what he meant.     "Sorry sir, i dont q.."     "Raz, the Rebels were hit hard today, they fell back and what was left of this segment retreated a full 30 miles. But the problem is that their lines didn't break. They've reformed again and are digging in. They won't be caught off guard next time."     "But how could they do that?" Raziel asked, quite suprised that the assault hadn't shattered the rebel's confidence.     "Because they're still safely dropping in ammunition, food, supplies and recruits in from the other side of the planet. They send the needed supplies in batches every week."     But" DW continued. "We have a chance, this weeks supply was late. They really need this supply, if they get it they'll start to starve. All their armies food was left behind in this attack."     "You want us to stop them?" Raziel asked raising an eyebrow.     "Yes, you and the dark knights will have to sneak through the enemies lines. You'll have to get through under the cover of darkness and a fake VE attack. When you get through you'll have to trek accross to the position and ambush the supply train. When you have it you'll have to destroy it all."     "Tough one." Raziel said.     "Well here's what you'll need to know" he handed Raz a data pad. "You'll need to prepare well for this one. We've given you appropriate sleeping bags for the conditions and plenty of rations and water. You'll still only have supplies for a few days so you'll need to hit the supplies in 5 days, take some food and get out. DK are already preparing, i suggest you do the same."     "Understood."     Raziel looked down at the datapad he know held. It looked like th supply trains consisted of a number of small guarding hover craft and 2 heavy transports. There would be about 30 guards so DK and wraiths would have to ambush them in the dark and hit them hard.     Raziel thought for some time. Explosives and some small rocket launchers would be needed to immobalise the heavy transports, once this was done they'd have to rely on being well hidden and in the dark.     Raziel set immediately to getting the Wraiths pepared, he issued everyone in the squad a general purpose knife. A useful weapon and needed for survival.     He then gave everyone an emergency belt. It contained some ammunition, some rations and water and escape and evasion equipment. If forced to run away fast they would survive off the belt alone.     The final thing he gave every man was a Silenced pistol for close up and queit kills.     2 days of planning later and the Wraiths and DK were speeding towards the enemy lines in black speeders. The explosions on Raziels left, maybe 10 miles away showed that the decoy attack had begun.     Soon the speeders stopped and Wraiths and DK departed. They would have to get any closer than this on foot.     "Good luck Wraiths" Viper said, before nodding and carrying on.     "Remember what i told you all. Keep low and take it slow!"     They headed off to try and break through unnoiticed. OOC: ok i've given us a mission. Sneak through enemy lines and ambush one of their supply trains which consists of 2 heavy skiffs and a few guarding speeders. not an easy task DK can choose not to do this if you want...i can edit the post.   ----------------------- SL/1SGTRaziel/4SQD/1COMP/1BAT/1RGT/Tadath/VEA/ {EW1} Squad Leader - Squad4 Wraiths

OOC: Raz, sorry to finish your mission real quick, but like DW says, they need us on Lotaith. Fish and Viper had chosen a route separate to the Wraiths: two groups stood a better chance of getting through than one. They had veered off around five klicks to the south of the Wraiths' route. The plan was to circle the convoy from north and south along a canyon road, take out the first car, the last car, and then finish off. =========================================== Meanwhile, back at Army HQ Cosmic sat in the Ops room examining the satellite feeds, looking happier by the minute. He called Snake in from outside where he was directing his squad in sweeping the city again for rebel stragglers. "What's up, Cosmic?" he asked. "Good news. Looks like we've destroyed most of their force here," he said indicating some satellite photos, "All they seem to have left is a short company. Though their commander is still alive." "That's good to hear, I was beginning to think they had an endless supply of men." "The bad news is I've been able to catch up with news from Lotaith, and it doesn't look good. They've settled into a trench war, and the lines are fairly static. I think the sooner we can get back the better." ========================================== In the field, 2300 hours Up ahead lay the supply skimmers, the sun had set a couple of hours ago, and the skimmers were bright with lights. "Raziel," said Viper into his encrypted comm-link, "You in position?" "Roger," came the reply, "Ready to go, on my mark. Three, two, one, mark!" Fish took out the driver of the lead truck just as a rocket hit the impellers from the other side. It hit the ground and died. The same with the last truck. The rocks and boulders to either side and the heavy load of the skimmers meant the column was now trapped. Fish started with anyone looking like he was giving orders while Viper moved in with an E-Web under each arm. On the other side, the Wraiths moved in quickly and silently. The guards were soon moving off towards the mass of fire coming from Viper and didn't notice the silent, black shapes moving in from the other side. By the time they did, the Wraiths had all the cover they needed from the boulders and the skimmers. The short platoon guarding the convoy didn't stand a chance. The troops gathered in by the skimmers and looked at the cargo. Foodstuffs, munitions, medical supplies. "Right, we can't carry much, and we're not moving these trucks ourselves," said Raziel, "I say we take what we want and blow the rest. That way we're stocked up again, and the enemy has nothing." Viper nodded, and the two squads began pilfering. 0300 hours Back at HQ, Cosmic convened a meeting in the Ops room. "Looks like the last of them are holed up here," Cosmic pointed at the map in front of them all, "about 5 klicks west. From the satellite coverage, I'd estimate there are about a hundred of them left, with no armour support at all, and probably running low of food and ammunition, now that we've taken out their supply convoy for this month," he paused and took a drink of water, "They've doubtless found out that their convoy was hit by now, and they're working on plans for raiding. My experience leads me to believe that they'll move in the next day or so to a more secure location from which they can do that." "Have you got any footage of specific people? We haven't found the body of anyone above the rank of Lieutenant here, and I don't think a Lieutenant lead this assault," put in Raziel. "That's a negative," replied Cosmic, "So we're assuming the worst, and that he is still alive and with his troops." "I could lead my squad out there with the new equipment that Dominion just received and hit them tomorrow early," said Demi Wraith. "No, they're sitting on the city's atmosphere generator, and have kept the thing shut off. We need to get in there, and get it online again ASAP." "Right," said Raziel, "They probably know they're sitting on that and that we want it back. So I say we go in there tonight. We take the new STAPs you guys have been using, they're really quiet, and we got in close. If I know these guys, most of them will be asleep soon, and if we can take out the guards quietly enough, we can take out the whole lot in a few minutes." "On another issue," said Cosmic, "I'm getting bad reports back from Lotaith. It seems to be more or less a stalemate there, and I think we could really make a difference. So what I suggest is this: Raz and Viper, you go out before dawn and strike at the atmosphere pumps. Clear it out and get it back online. Demi Wraith, Snake, you get back into orbit and we'll get you moving to Lotaith, it'll only be a few hours difference at best, but they may be a critical few hours." Agreement was shown from around the table. "Right, let's move it."   ----------------------- Ramon Stonefish "How can we say we are protectors when we are more feared than that which we defend against?!" --Lucien, the First Fallen.

Argon sat at the regional HQ where the Dread Knights(hear that Raz?  DREAD Knights.  Not Dark Knights  ) were up to four members. In his hand, he held the orders his squad had for the upcoming battle near Lotaith. Orders for Dread Knights Squad: Black Ops 1)Slip behind enemy lines. 2)Neutralize any officers encountered. 3)Cause general havoc.       VEHC He turned to his squad, who were lounging around a chessboard while Fish beat one of the newbies. "All right guys,"he said,"pack up.  It's time to go..."

Cosmic stared at the large monitor with the scans of the planet.  The small rebel forces were now being surrounded silently by the Imperial forces.  Cosmic smiled and then turned his attention to Lotaith.  The Army facility on Tadath was secure. Next planet weas Lotaith. Cosmic knew that the Imperial forces on Lotaith would greatly increase their chances of victory of a Dark Jedi was accompanying them in the fight against the Rebels. Making up his mind, he established contact with the Dark Jedi homeworld of Lopen and requested that a shuttle be sent to him on Tadath.  After he transmitted the message, he walked got up and walked out of the Main Ops Center and outside of the facility for a moment to get a breath of air.

OOC: Right, it's time for a small rant, and I'm putting it here so you read it. Why is it that we've tried to wrap up Tadath about four times now, and every time we do someone decides that there are more rebel troopers and that there are more enemy lines. HOW MANY PEOPLE DO THEY HAVE? I think we've killed the population of Coruscant by now! Let's go to Lotaith ffs!

OOC:  Before I open the path for the Corps to hit Lotaith, I need someone to tell me the definite status of the naval force around it...both ours, the FES', and the enemy.  Thanks in advance. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________ It was becoming clear that this world was just too damn flat. Sure there were plenty of hilly areas and mountains across the planet, but that meant nothing to Fury.  Those areas were still under VE control.  It were these open plains that were the current battlefields.  That and the cities, which were pretty much rubble at this point. Fury had taken the time to realize that he needed to see more of the big picture, so he had checked out a speeder and a scout to get a look at the battlefield.  This apparently had been good farm land for someone.  The past three kilometers had been composed of the burnt stalks of some form of grain, probably destroyed by the farmer and his family as the enemy came to occupy. Fury sent out a silent hope that they were okay. As he went past the defensive lines thrown up when the advance had stalled, a tragically funny quote came back to him.  Once considered a standard line by the dead emperor when addressing stormtroopers, he looked out at what was currently "an entire legion of my best troops" on Lotaith.  It was both high praise and brutal reality.  From every walk of life, people had volunteered to fight in defense of their government.  Surprisingly, dozens of species were represented in the front line trenches.  Apparently the Vast Empire leadership was unlike that of other factions of the Imperial Remnant.  The problem was that the populace was now armed and skilled in the ways or war.  If anyone expected them to calmly return to their farms and offices without having some voice for change, they would be highly mistaken. That, however, was a long victory away.  For now, they were beating an organized enemy force and defending their homes in the process.  Someone was apparently taking up quartermaster duties.  Nearly everyone had some form of body armor on.  Some were patched from earlier hits...either on the wearer or from the previous owner. A few were wearing nearly new standard Imperial gear and carrying E-11 rifles.  Freighters from Imperial Center, the FES, and various friendly smuggler groups had been landing near the capital or at the freshly built  Retribution starport (at least that was the going name for it) for days now.  Running the gauntlet of enemy ships had been a lot easier now with the FES fleet nearby and the home fleet unleashing some anger whenever they could. To Fury, this meant that they could stay both fed and armed. Another part of the starport was a burgeoning city composed of prefab buildings and Galcura hull plates.  This was where the field hospitals and repair bays were being located.  Warehouses and even a cantina or two had shown up overnice.  Fury supposedly had some office space in the admin area, but he had yet to visit it. With all the pain and destruction around, he wouldn't admit it out loud, but he was glad to be fighting in the field again. The FES ground commander, General Matok, had been itching for another advance.  His only slowdown were parts for his over-worked walkers and a supporting attack from the VE.  Fury had received intel from the partisans behind the lines that gave him a decent indication of the enemy forces within this sector.  With the city behind them becoming a hard-fought standoff, they felt capable of advancing on the enemy encampments elsewhere.  After days of scrounging, he had enough vehicles to carry a regiment of troops quickly, and enough rifles and heavier weapons to arm everyone.  Unless more enemy troops landed in the near future, they could at least go toe-to-toe with the local opposition.

D-13 found a medpack not too far from the entrance. "Looks like an abandoned camp."he said. Grizzly healed himself up and rearmed the blasters. They made camp there but with only a few days' rations, they have to reach a comm center quickly. D-13 dug a trench around the opening. Grizzly peeked out the opening and spotted the deserters. He prepared to fire when all of a sudden D-13 mad e a grab for his gun. "Are you nuts???!!" yelled D-13. "Hey, we're well protected and I'm a good shot." came the sarcastic reply. The argument attracted the enemy and the two jumped into the pit. Laser blasts streaked the air and mine shaft as the two groups exchanged fire. A group of the deserters made a charge for them. A man screamed and flipped to the ground with a resounding thump. A few more followed suit as they were struck down one by one. Grizzly took accurate potshots while D-13 provided cover fire. This effective mode of strategy ended the fighting and the place was clear again. "Look over there." said D-13. They had found an old comm device. Grizzly seized the microphone and adjusted the frequencies. D-13 grinned behind his muddy helmet. "We're gonna get outta here!"

The Dread Knights moved forward, they were going to be the ones to end this deadlock in the city. This had become like Stalingrad, with the enemy sending company after company just for the moral victory of holding it. Well, the mission of the Dread Knights was to hit every communications and command center on the enemy side of the lines. Argon carried a large backpack of explosives on his back. In his hand, he carried his E-11/H and his ne Whisper sniper rifle. On his wrists were the rocket launchers he had bought, and slung over one shoulder was his flechette launcher. In his pack, he also carried a couple rations(he didn't need as many as his troops because he could eat human flesh without any moral or biological problems), a satelite comm unit, and a military sleeping bag. Also, on his face he wore a filter mask and multi-spectrum goggles. Finally, in his belt, he carried the two Rykk blades he had recently bought. While they weren't as good as his two sabers, they would do. Behind him followed the rest of the DK, they were still in the process of slipping through the lines, this would be fun...

OOC: Navy Status Right now, the entire Vast Empire fleet is around Loliath in a battle with the Rebs.  We are in the middle of an even battle, but we can provide escort for necessary land troops.  Write an escort of a Carrack or maybe even a Victory if you need it.  They won't be sorely missed from the battle for long.  Don't destroy any of my ships

============ Tadath Army HQ ============ Cosmic watched as the shuttle was being landing by instructions from the on-board computer system.  The Dark Jedi shuttle's ramp opened and Cosmic walked inside.  He sat down in the pilot seat and ran a few planetary scans.  He noticed that the squads surrounding the Rebel encampment were now attacking and destroying their offensive forces. The Rebels recruits were getting smaller and smaller in numbers. Cosmic gained altitude and headed to orbit the planet. Once in orbit, Cosmic entered the coordinates to Lotaith.  He contacted Demi Wraith and told him that his work here was done and that he was going to help along with the fight against the Rebel invaders on Lotaith.  Demi Wraith acknowledged and Cosmic engaged the engines. ============ Lotaith Army HQ ============ Cosmic game out of hyperspace and immediately saw the Vast Empire Navy orbiting Lotaith, and firing it's lasers on the enemy ships in orbit along with the VE ships and also attacking the ground troops of the Rebel invaders on the planet. Cosmic opened the channel to the nearest VSD and waited for a response. "Who is this?" Asked a demanding voice. "This is Captain Cosmic of the Vast Empire Army.  I have just come from Tadath.  The planet has been liberated. I would like to dock with you and come aboard." There was a little hesitation on the other end.  Cosmic guessed that the communications officer was probably checking his frequancy and making sure it was truly Imperial and authentic. "Acknowledged." Came the response. Cosmic nodded and headed for the VSD's docking bay. Once inside, the Dark Jedi's ramp opened and Cosmic walked out with his brown cloak on.  His lightsaber was dangling on his left side, and was scene by all of the crewman working aboard the might vessel. Cosmic was immediately escorted to the Communications room where he was going to inform the planet of Lotaith of his arrival...

Kuroishi lay in the freezing mud of his homeworld near the garison station where they were holding the bulk of the Varneck Planetary Defense force. With the recall of his other self and the pilots he provided it was now even more important to get these men free. Kuroishi watched the guards pace back and forth on thier patrols.  GUESSWORK had managed to get a scan of the lay out of the building from thier orbital passes.  While it wasn't enough to know where the VPDF was being kept within the building it was enough to allow Kuroishi to plan his assault. Kuroishi signaled for the attack to begin.  The Fallen Angels quickly and surely threw several thermal detonators at key points and just as quickly disapeared into the ground. A few seconds later most of the patrols were out of action and the rest of the station was obviosuly on alert.  Next Kuroishi watched through some binocs to locate the guard barracks. With the follod of guards spilling out Kuroishi used hand signals to give coordinates to Hippie for his missle launcher to fire upon. A satisfying explosion ripped through most of the remaining guards and Kuroishi motioned for the charge to begin. With not many guards left Kutoishi didn't even bother to try and dodge the blaster fire coming from the survivors. Several well placed return shots from the Fallen Angels made any furhter resistance cease. Kuroishi motioned for the Fallen Angels to break up and search each of the complexes. Kuroishi stepped into what was obviously the commanders office.  Underneath the desk hiding was the commander.  Kuroishi reached down and picked the commander up. The human paled at the site of Kuroishi. "I..I...I..I knew it was true the Fallen Angels really are here.  Please don't use my skin as the wrapping paper for a condolance gift to my family."  The commander wimpered out. "Frak why didn't I think of that one.  Tycho your supposed to be listening to the rumors about us so we know what horrific prank we're supposed to pull next.  Let the Deathwookie know we're going to send up the ingrediants to make cannibal crackers and let him know that he needs to save the skin so that he can wrap them in it as a preasent."  Kuroishi replied as the human commander passed out in his arms. "You serious boss?  Ussually you question enemy commanders before you do such things."  Tycho responded. "Well we can get what we need from the computer systems once you slice into them.  So I don't see why we can't pull the prank this man just suggested.  I'm sure Deathwookie won't mind spreading the message of Cannibalism in such a fasion, after all it is practicly his religion."  Kuroishi retorted as he sat down to the computer terminal. Kuroishi knew he was going a little over his ussual limits but he did not want to take any chances on liberating his homeworld. "Kuroishi we have found the VPDF and thier stuff we'll be up in half an hour."  Master's voice came over the comm. Now all Kuroishi had to do was find the two Varneck Royal Commandos and they would be set to finish this campaign.

[FA Post] Argon, after sharing a meal with Deathwookie, headed down to where Daishi stood. "Any luck,"he asked, seeing Tycho hunched over the computer. "Not bad so far,"mumbled Tycho,"they've got some pretty good algorithms, but I can break em..." "Viper,"said Daishi,"step aside for a moment please." "Yeah Dai?"asked Viper when they were out of earshot from everyone else,"What's up?" "I need you to scout out our next target,"said Daishi,"it's the local spaceport, we need to capture it to prevent enemy troop landings." "No problem,"said Argon,"how 'scouted' do you want it?" "No damage to real estate,"said Daishi,"but the people there don't matter, they're all Rebels.  Oh yeah, I'm sending a Varnek soldier with you.  Bakra." Behind him, a Varnek marine stood up and walked toward them. "Bakra,"said Dai,"I'm sending you with Argon Viper, he's a highly experienced scout.  When he thinks something isn't worth doing, which isn't often, I would suggest not doing it.  Otherwise, assist him whenever he asks for it." "As you command,"said the marine slowly, never taking his eyes of the nightmare vision he had just been told to follow. One thing Daishi didn't know was that, while Argon wasn't used to the high gravity, he was still faster and stronger in it that Daishi himself due to his biology. "Well,"said Argon,"let's get going..."

Fury was enjoying some downtime and some paperwork.  Normally not a great joy, but they had just endured a third skirmish with some Chevin who came hard at the lines, followed by Bothan mercenaries - which was new to Fury as he had never seen a Bothan actually do it's own dirty work.  Behind them were various species in the usual assorted pirate gangs and merc crews.  Strange how the composition of troops of this enemy was.  The campaign thus far had shown very different faces of this enemy. First, all they saw were humanoids, then oncoming rushes of assorted species, then species-specific outfits with humanoids hiding safely in the rear.  Whatever glue was holding this coalition together had to be fairly sturdy.  He read through some more reports and fired off a few orders of his own.  Apparently Tadath was back in VE hands.  The Dominion was in orbit, attached to the remnants of the Army space station, putting on supplies and undergoing repairs.  Some of the enemy assault shuttles had been taken intact and would be needed to replace the equipment lost in recent battles. Fury had to figure out where to place his troops once they arrived at Lotaith.  While he and the FES were holding the line to the southwest of the capital city, the enemy was roaming free over much of the rest of the planet.  To the northeast of the city, partisans controlled a fairly open area, perfect for assembling an armed force.  Before them were about three regiments of enemy troops, well dug in and protected by artillery and air support.  They were the reason the FES moved their landing to the slightly less contested southeast. With recent developments, however, troops had been moved from the area to back up the taking of other large cities.  A platoon of stormtroopers and a regiment of regulars with partisan support would certainly even the odds on the battlefield.  If they could relieve some of the opposition between the units Fury was working with and the city, they could recapture the capital and use it as a staging area to take back the rest of the planet.  For a look at the landing zone for the Dominion and Scythe-based teams, check out the map below, upper right is the LZ, and the legend is here: Outposts are lead elements of various partisan groups who will help you until you engage the enemy en masse.  Their job is to protect their land and families and will only help set up the destruction of enemy forces, not get themselves into situations where they may get killed.  The "dots" are enemy platoons...and there are a lot of them.  Most of them are regulars however, so while they are dug in, they are weak in close hand combat compared to stormtroopers.  Do not forget their superiority in artillery. Consider the total enemy strength in the vicinity to be three regiments in strength.  If you push too hard, there are five more ready to fill the gap.  Proceed with some level of caution. Work either as regular teams or begin to work as specialized units, trying out a variety of different weapons systems.  Do the same for your characters if you wish.  For the Wraiths and Dread Knights you either have much room to snipe from, defenses to exploit, and a couple of ways to run a flanking manuever through difficult terrain.  Unless Demi Wraith has a mission for you, consider this time to play. For a larger look at the battlefield, I have this image.  Small groups of enemy are regiment strength, the larger ones about brigade. Feel free to ask any questions.   ----------------------- XO/LTC Fury/VEA/TADATH/VE [PoC][SotE:HC][SotE:VEA][IOC] Company Commander Shopkeeper - Imperial Center

Cosmic was onboard a shuttle and heading for Lotaith Military Headquarters with a two-TIE Fighter-escort. They docked on the landing pad, and the TIEs flew off back the mothership. Cosmic walked inside the Lotaith Army HQ and headed for the Main Control Center where he was sure General Anakin would be. The long halls of the military installation were very thick.  Lights paved the way in front of Cosmic, as he walked down the many corridors long stretches of hallway. On his way to the main control room, Cosmic passed several guards who frequantly stopped him and checked him for his ID.  They always let him through once they knew who he was. Before entering the control center, Cosmic was once again checked, this time thoroughly.  His ID was checked and also his belongings. The guards were a little nervous around him, seeing that a lightsaber was attatched to his hilt.  Once they were done, they nodded and let him through the heavy-duty doors that lead to the main nervous system of the Army HQ. Cosmic walked in and headed for the Officer in Command.  The officer turned to Cosmic, who was still in his Dark Jedi cloak. "Yes?" "I would like to speak with either General Anakin or Lieutenant Colonel Fury." The officer nodded and immediately informed Fury via commlink message for further instruction for Captain Cosmic.

Argon headed past the enemy lines with Ramon and the two newbies. So far, he hadn't heard a peep out the newbies, but Fish said he'd talked to one of them... Three kilometers ahead, they spotted their target, an artillery battery. They kept moving, it was time to give the VE an advantage in firepower... [OOC: I'm not planning to blast these, I'm planning to capture them and send the newbies home with them, if possible  ]

A couple of addendums and a question or two. 1. Consider each hex about 1.5 kilometers.  2. Am I to assume that the Dread Knights are on Lotaith? 3. If so, where is everyone else? 4. Captain Cosmic, if I'm not mistaken, has made it to the underground bunker in occupied capital city. With the comments and conditions in place, this is what I will work from. VE volunteers and militia (including myself) and FES forces are to the southwest of the capital.  This campaign is on open ground and moves in leaps as vehicles and manpower allow. Captain Cosmic, and all Army/Navy High Command not otherwise stationed, are with the High Council in the underground warrens of the capital, which is being fought over by small units (I will refer to Argon's allusion to Stalingrad as the example here). The Dominion teams will be to the northeast of the city - and presumably the Dread Knights and potentially the Wraiths in the Scythe in an area we'll call Free Lotaith for lack of a better term.  Other than battle areas, this area is the foothills to the great mountain areas of the planet, and as such are not under enemy control.  You will run into a bottleneck as this area opens onto the plains near the capital. All these areas are separate from each other.  The northeast sector is better supplied and capable of relatively free movement.  The inner city is a warzone shrunk to mere building-to-building control on the surface.  Near all troops stay on the defensive to protect the HC...only going forth in small units to harass and disrupt the enemy.  The southwest battle is between rapidly depleting forces.  We don't have enough force to overpower and the enemy is beginning to show it's loss of heavy weapons and is resorting to more "fleshy" assaults than previously in the campaign. Keep firing off any questions you may have.
