Long ago and far away, in the Mudara Galaxy, aboard the ancient starship the Uberweapon, nearly the size of the Imperial capital of Komm below, standing on the bridge, facing the viewport, looking out at a massive fleet of assembled battleships, was...

"Hey, Ludy-what'syerface!"

The Gatekeeper slowly turned around to face two men.

"I need to buff my security, evidently," was all the robot-voiced giant had to say.

Standing before him were The King of Kings, holding a sledgehammer, and The Chair Guy, holding a folding chair.

KoK spoke up.

"We're gonna break yer legs, Geeky!"

"It's for your own good!" said the Chair Guy.

The Gatekeeper was unamused.

"Get 'em!"

The two imbeciles fierce warriors rushed, KoK running into a boot to the head, and Chair Guy into an uppercut to the throat, both of them dropping their weapons.

Less than five seconds later, the two asshats fierce warriors were lying on the ground spasm-ing after being chokeslammed.

Not batting an eye, GK turned back to the bridge and his fleet of battleships.

The fleet floated elegantly in the void over Komm. The newly assembled vessels gleaming shiny...ly... from the reflective light of the planet below. It would certainly be something for any man to be proud of, except maybe the Gatekeeper who'd probably built a thousand fleets like this before. But still, despite the rude interruption he'd just suffered, there was little to fret. His enemies all freshly defeated, the economy booming, the SE Galactic functioning at full-strength... what could possible go wrong?

Well the Gatekeeper should not have allowed me to ask that, because just then, the proud, shiny flagship of this mighty flight exploded into a million shiny pieces. And those pieces broke a lot of the smaller ships around it into shiny pieces too. And those shiny pieces made for an epic glitter display outside the Gatekeeper's front window...

The Gatekeeper's eyes reflected his state of mind.

"Figures."

He turned around to walk off the bridge and take a shuttle down to the surface to address this latest calamity in a long series of calamities.

Standing in the doorway leading off the bridge was a man in blue jeans (for style), black chest armor (for protection) and wearing a pair of black aviator sunglasses (for style AND protection). His blonde hair was combed up like Elvis and he had what appeared to be a giant... comb... sword... thing... slung over his back.

"Hey Geeky-man, Heath Ryder here to announce that you're going down... man!" he announced, giving the Gatekeeper a double-fingered point pose, "Oh yeah, and your shiny toy ships out there? They already went down because of me... man!"

A bedraggled-looking SE officer ran onto the bridge behind the intruder and shrugged at the Gatekeeper helplessly.

"My lord, I tried to stop him, but he killed all the men I tried to arrest him with." the officer complained.

Post by: JA-394 on Nov 10 2016, 08:23 PM
The Gatekeeper was slightly amused.

"Killed them with...?" he vocally gestured to the comb sword thing, not addressing Heath Ryder.

Post by: Tyler294 on Nov 10 2016, 08:28 PM
"Yes my lord... I've never seen anything like it! He... combed them to death!" the officer blurted, "I would have called you to ask permission to release the reserves, but something cut-off communications to the bridge!"

Heath Ryder lifted up a chunk of Cat3 cable and a pair of wire cutters.

"Sorry Geeky-man, but I couldn't have you phoning a friend during our throwdown." he said, "You really should update from landline... man."

Both Heath and the Officer cast a brief glance at the telephone mounted on the bridge wall not far away, then looked back at the Gatekeeper.

The Gatekeeper panned his head in the direction of the landline, it never registering that his method was out of date.

"Very well. You are dismissed."
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: Tyler294 on Nov 10 2016, 08:33 PM
"Yes my lord." the officer replied with a quick bow, before heading for the door.

Ryder, figuring this now meant he was at center stage, took a few steps forward now.

"It's time to boogie Geeky-man, let's do this!" he declared, reaching for his combsword.

"Officer, I was not talking to you," the GK summoned back the traumatized official, then finally addressed the heckler, looking at Heath, "You. You are dismissed."
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: Tyler294 on Nov 10 2016, 08:42 PM
"You trying to... dis... miss... me, Geeky-man? Do you even know who you're talking to!?" Heath roared, point a finger at himself for dramatic emphasis.

The poor officer stopped short of the door, but tried to inch away from Heath. He wasn't worried about his boss, but he didn't want to get any bones broken by this buffoon when the Gatekeeper inevitably mauled him and threw away the body in a random direction... which could be at him. That was how he got promoted after all...

"No," the Gatekeeper answered the question.
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: Tyler294 on Nov 10 2016, 08:48 PM
Ryder paused a moment, then rubbed his chin.

"Which question was that an answer to?"
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: JA-394 on Nov 10 2016, 08:51 PM
The GK realized he may have made an error.

"The second. I do not know who you are."

Post by: Tyler294 on Nov 10 2016, 08:58 PM
"Oh... OH!" Ryder's pointy finger now shot upward, "Allow me to introduce myself, then! I am Heath Ryder, the pillager of the planet Goholo, defeater of Clans of Durrrrrr, and the man who made the Kessel Run in less than 11.9 parsecs... while holding my breath!"

Ryder flipped around in place a few times, pointing in random directions, before coming about to face GK once more. He smiled a toothy smile that actually caused a lens flare of some sort from the shininess of his impeccable teeth.

"You're looking at the greatest Space Jockey in the Galaxy!" he concluded, doing the double point at GK again, the pointing both fingers back at himself a moment after.

Post by: JA-394 on Nov 10 2016, 09:06 PM
The Gatekeeper was silent for a moment.

"Space Jockeys blew up my first attempts at interstellar travel. I was angry."

He sounded so calm.

"Angry enough to realize small-scale was overrated. The next time they came for me, this was waiting for them."

He was obviously talking about the vessel they were standing in.

"Do you know why I haven't killed you yet?"
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: Tyler294 on Nov 10 2016, 09:08 PM
"Because I'm one handsome devil and you want me to share my secrets?" Ryder replied with a wink.
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: JA-394 on Nov 10 2016, 09:11 PM
"Because you remind me of those space jockeys. And the memories of humanity. I do not envy you. Now leave, before my mood sours and you die because of it."

"I did not travel two hundred ninety-four trillion light years, blow up a gloriously shiny capital ship, and infiltrate the biggest ship in the Galaxy to turn tail now. I have come to challenge you to mortal hand-to-hand combat, with swords! If you will not fight me, then I shall have to continue to goad you!" Ryder replied, before pointing at the viewport now, "Budda-bing, budda-..."

Another ship exploded.

"-boom." Ryder concluded.

METALLIC ROAR

The sound came from everywhere, yet nowhere, announcing to the Gatekeeper...

"I see my security measures are now online, at last."

METALLIC ROAR


"Kill."

From the ceiling, where there were no vents, highly-toxic poisonous gas began to fill the room, the Gatekeeper being unaffected due to his mask. At the same time, two random chainguns appeared on the control console of all places on either side of GK and began whirling up and firing rounds at Heath.

Post by: Tyler294 on Nov 11 2016, 05:55 PM
"Not again!" officer guy moaned, pulling out a gas mask he conveniently carried around on his belt and fastening it to his face, while still pressing himself against the wall in the corner of the room.

"Uh-huh, let's do this, man!" Ryder declared, skillfully maneuvering his comb-sword so it blocked the incoming barrage of bullets.

At the same time, he did nothing about the toxic gas. This turned out not to be a problem though as the gas never reached his nostrils. In fact, the gas began to be sucked out of the room and into... Ryder's glorious hair.

"You underestimate the power of my Good Looks, Geeky-man." the space-jockey taunted.

Post by: JA-394 on Nov 11 2016, 06:32 PM
The chainguns switched to firing rockets and the gas turned to water.

Now rather wet between the ears, and about to be obliterated by a bunch of rockets, Ryder stopped being jovial for a moment.

"No fair, Geeky-man!" he grumbled, before leaping above one of the rockets while slicing another in half mid-air. He then used to explosion to somehow propel himself forward toward the Gatekeeper.

He came to a landing between the rocket launchers, then as they turned to fire at him in their midst, simply ducked as the launchers crisscross fired into each-other over top of him. Ryder immediately popped back to his feet, as the explosions were still dissipating on either side of him.

"You'll have to do better than that, Geeky-man!" said he.

The Gatekeeper offered no verbal response, choosing instead to allow the twin-turbolaser turret that had just sprouted up in the middle of the floor do the talking for him.
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: Tyler294 on Nov 11 2016, 07:02 PM
"Okay, I guess you can do better." Ryder admitted, before whipping out a miniaturized Gungan shield generator and activating it.

A bubble of blue shielding soon covered the area immediately around Ryder and absorbed the first couple of turbo-laser shots. Knowing he couldn't simply hide under a shield forever, Ryder weighed his options. Noting a maintenance catwalk running along the ceiling far above, he devised a strategy.

As the turbolasers broke through his high-tech primitive shield generator, Ryder fired a grappling hook into the ceiling above and ascended quick as a flash. The turrets naturally followed his movement and fired again when Rider reached the catwalk. Of course, this was exactly as intended, as the blasts struck said catwalk and destroyed some of the supports. The section Rider had landed on began to swing downward, while at the same time our intrepid showoff grabbed-hold of the railing and swung along with it. Clutching the railing with one hand, he drew his combsword once more and as the catwalk section came down close enough to the turret he slashed both barrels off like they were butter... or uncooperative hair. Neither analogy is quite right... but neither is Ryder for that matter.

Still using the momentum of the swinging catwalk, Ryder propelled himself again forward at the Gatekeeper, sword outstretched before him as he flew through the air like a man shot out of a canon.

"Geranium!!!" he whooped mid-air.

The Gatekeeper stepped to the side, allowing Ryder to smack into the viewport.

Post by: Tyler294 on Nov 11 2016, 07:08 PM
And that he did. And he further slid down the viewport leaving a trail of saliva and snot all the way until he reached the floor.

The still somehow not dead SE officer finally came back front and center and saluted the Gatekeeper.

"Splendid work my lord!" he leaned over to the side to look around GK at Ryder and the slimy window beyond, "Shall I call maintenance to clean this mess up?"

Post by: JA-394 on Nov 11 2016, 07:11 PM
The Gatekeeper looked at him.

"Yes. And take him planetside. Put him to the guillotine."
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: Tyler294 on Nov 11 2016, 07:12 PM
"We still use the guillotine, my lord?"

Post by: JA-394 on Nov 11 2016, 07:13 PM
"I have a telephone on this thing. If you do not have a guillotine, build one, and put him to it."

Post by: Tyler294 on Nov 11 2016, 07:14 PM
"As you wish my lord..." the officer acknowledged, before scampering off to find maintenance, and guillotine blueprints.

As one officer left, another arrived. This one wearing the patches of an SE Grand Admiral.

"This is outrageous!" the admiral, a lady of formerly high-standing in some formally existent culture that was now obviously part of the SE and didn't matter anymore, "My Lord, I shipped all my furniture to the bridge of my new flagship, and before my shuttle even leaves the spaceport, the vessel has already been destroyed! I certainly hope you intend to do something about this egregious act! The sofa was woven by the most skilled Fazabian Fa'neir Dragon artisons and had been in my family for a hundred and ninety-seven generations!"

The Gatekeeper blinked.

Post by: Tyler294 on Nov 11 2016, 07:41 PM
"That's it? That's all the reaction I get from you my lord? Do you realize the INSURANCE costs from this disaster!? Why, it's practically enough to bankrupt SE Galactic! And here you are, on your invincible supership, that I got LOST on AGAIN, sitting around doing NOTHING about it!"

The Admiral, whose name was Aedan T. Arana, seemed to completely oblivious to the absolute mess on the bridge caused by Ryder's attempted brawlssassination. Also the two idiots GK had dispatched earlier were still lying around.

Post by: JA-394 on Nov 11 2016, 07:48 PM
"In rebuttal, SE Galactic has income from over a thousand star systems plus propaganda efforts. I think the economy can afford the hit. Second, have you considered that if you were on that ship with your prized sofa my Empire would be without its Grand Admiral? Third, insurance is a non-issue. This is a military matter, more along the lines of terrorism that needs to be handled. Again back to my point on the economy. And finally, I am standing. Not sitting."

Post by: Tyler294 on Nov 11 2016, 07:52 PM
"Oh, well that's tooooootally different. Sorry to bother you, my lord."

With a flawless about-face, the admiral marched off the bridge, just in time for officer guy to return with the maintenance crew who were carrying buckets and mops.

"Now clean up this mess!" officer guy commanded, pointing at the bridge.

The crew looked around at the charred walls, broken turrets, fallen catwalk, dirty windows, and ugly buffoons inhabiting the floor. Not to mention some rather toxic-smelling water and dozens of chaingun bullets and rocket pieces.

"Phew..." Maintenance Man 1 sighed, "And here I thought it was going to be a total disaster."

"Aye, I thought it was going to look like it did last Tuesday." Maintenance Man 2 added.

"Don't remind me." 1 growled.

The Gatekeeper looked briefly around the bridge at the mess he had created this time, then made for the shuttle that was presumably still in one of the hangars. At least he hoped it was.

If it wasn't, he'd have to order SE Galactic to build a big-ass spaceport. Double-time.

As the Gatekeeper traveled back to the planet, security arrived to haul Heath Ryder away to the dungeons, also on the planet surface. Ryder was still in a daze for most of the trip, not coming out of it until he was already locked behind durasteel-cortosis compound alloy bars. Yes, the dungeon on Komm still used the classic metal bars instead of modern forcefields. But that was made okay by the fact that the steel bars were made out of ridiculously OP steel.

Ryder, now back to whatever passes for normal for him, paused a moment to take-in his surroundings. Outside the window he could see workers busily constructing a guillotine, obviously meant for him. Waiting for them to finish that would indeed be a grave mistake; he needed to act quickly. It was then that he noticed an anomaly: the jailer was a woman. Now in what universe in the history of all universes is the jailer ever a woman? Well, we had to try something unique right?

Ryder's plan was instantly hatched. He came over to the bars and immediately began attempting to seduce the lady-guard (we'll skim-over his idiotic come-ons for the sake of the non-existent audience's sanity). Finally, she grew sick of him and approached the cell.

"Can't you understand that what you're doing is NOT going to work on me? Why don't you just shut up already!" she snapped.

"I can't help that the stakes are unfair. If it were a woman in the cell and a man outside it would absolutely work every time!" Ryder lamented.

"That's such a tired troupe. There's no guarantee it'd work." the lady-guard retorted.

"Of course it would! It always does!" Ryder declared.

"No it doesn't!"

"Yes it does!"

"No it doesn't!"

"Yes it does and I will prove it to you!" Ryder cried.

"Fine! Show me!" the lady-guard growled.

"Okay, let's switch places here and you play the prisoner, I'll play the guard." the not-so-clever space jokey suggested.

"Hrmph... I'm telling you it won't work." the even-less-clever lady-guard replied, unlocking the cell and allowing Ryder out, then taking his place inside while giving him the keys.

Ryder pushed the door shut behind her, locked it, and put the key on his belt.

"Okay, now, seduce me." he goaded her.

And so the lady-guard began a series of equally inept and awkward seduction attempts. Ryder stood by, stroking his chin and analyzing her attempts as though he were pondering a complex math equation. As each attempt failed, the guard tried to one-up herself, until finally Ryder had enough.

"You know, I do believe you're right... it doesn't work every time." he admitted.

"See, I told you!" the lady-guard laughed victoriously.

"Yep, I am defeated." Ryder sighed, "You won this round, or you would have, except for one thing..."

"What's that?" the lady-guard asked.

"I'm HEEEEAAATTTHHH RRRYYYDDDEEER!" Ryder bellowed, before turning around and charging up the stairs and out of the dungeon.

The lady guard blinked in confusion a moment, then finally realized what just happened.

"DAMN IT HEATH!!!"

The Gatekeeper landed in Komm's largest spaceport and briskly left his shuttle. He'd truthfully had just about enough of human inter-

"Lord Gatekeeper!"

Oh no.

A small, feeble, unimportant man that GK recognized after a moment as a butler of some sort was waving him over. The nerve.

"My Lord, a moment of your time if you would?"

The Gatekeeper glared at him.

"An unknown assailant broke into the palace today."

"Fascinating. I wonder how he did it."

"That isn't the point, my Lord."

The Gatekeeper's eyes flared up in anger.

"I WILL DECIDE WHAT THE POINT IS, FOOL!"

*Receptionist Desk - Outside the Hangar*

Officer 1: "Did you get your coffee today? You've been acting a little off."

Officer 2: "Eh."

Butler: "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!"

*EXPLOSION*

Officer 2: "I'm gonna go get some coffee."

Officer 1: "Yeah, I think it's lunch time anyway."

His daring escape successful, Heath Ryder returned to his (hidden) ship, which as one might expect, was a fast, sporty, and definitely OP for its size little ship. Luckily, the ship didn't look like the Millennium Falcon, unlike every other ship of it's classification. Reason? because this is the Mudara Galaxy dammit! Anyway, Ryder's ship was soon on its way away from Komm and toward a distant, long-forgotten but soon-to-be-remembered volcanic world in the more isolated corners of space.


***OBSIDIA MAGMUS - SECRET TERRORIST BASE***


Ryder touched down on the dark-colored landing pad built from rusty steel, concrete and even stone, and where only a few maintenance droids wandered about, hauling fuel back and forth and doing whatever it is that maintenance droids do. The space jockey strolled past them and toward the door which led into a hidden base, built into the side of a volcano. A small sliding panel on the door slide open, revealing a pair of eyes on the other side.

"What is the password?" the being to whom those eyes belonged growled from the inside.

"Swordfish!" Ryder declared confidently.

"Incorrect. That password is outdated." the being responded.

"What, why didn't anyone tell me!?" Ryder exclaimed.

"Incorrect." the being stated.

"But, I'm supposed to meet with your boss in fifteen minutes!" Ryder protested.

"Incorrect."

"You're making a mistake!"

"Incorrect."

"Damn you!"

"Correct. You may enter." the being replied, hauling open the heavy steel door, which creaked on it's hinges as it opened.

Ryder paused a moment, then just shrugged and accepted it and walked on in. Despite the stupidly archaic exterior, the interior of the base was much more top-of-the-line. The walls were smooth and shiny, albeit a bit dark, while lights and random panels dotted the corridors every so often. Ryder knew where to proceed to, and the few souls he came across in the hall paid him little mind. Soon he arrived at an office, where his contractor, a fellow called "Letter C" awaited him.

"Ah, Mr. Ryder, good to see you again." 'Letter C' greeted.

"I know, it's always good to see me." Ryder agreed.

"I take it you defeated the Gatekeeper, as per our agreement?" Letter C inquired.

"No. I destroyed two of Geeky-man's shiny toys, but he gave me the slip. But don't you worry, Heath Ryder always gets his mark!" Ryder replied.

Letter C looked a bit disappointed. Actually he looked very disappointed.

"You assured me you could take the Gatekeeper on and defeat him." he stated, "This news is... most unreassuring."

"I assure you, you can be assured that I will ensure that the Geeky-man's demise is assured." Ryder replied, "I just need to make a few requests of you."

Letter C glared at Ryder, then pushed the button on his desk intercom.

"This is Letter C, ask Letter B to meet me at my office." he stated into the device.

"Why do you use such odd codenames?" Ryder asked, "Wouldn't it be cooler to call yourselves "Number 1", "Number 2" and so on?"

"Oh, please... That's been done before!" Letter C dismissed it, then added defensively, "If there is anything AlphaOmega is not, it is unoriginal!"

"Oh, is that why you built you super secret base into a volcano?" Ryder asked in genuine curiosity.

"..."

Just then, the door opened and a green-skinned woman in country clothes stepped in.

"Ya'll called for Letter V?" she asked.

"NO! Not Letter V! Letter B!" Letter C roared.

"Oh, I reckon' he ain't available right noaw." Letter V shrugged.

"Curses!" Letter C grumbled, "Get out of here! I'll handle this myself then!"

Letter V shrugged again and left, but not before Ryder gave her a charming... or creepy... they're both oddly not far apart... wink.

"RYDER!" Letter C snapped.

"That's me!" Ryder replied.

"What is it you need to defeat the Gatekeper, already?" Letter C growled, "My superiors are not in a position to be patient while you dally around blowing up chrome cruisers! Answer me! What will it take for you to defeat the Gatekeeper!?"

Ryder stroked his chin, as though thinking about what it would take, despite the fact that he'd implied he knew just a moment before. Letter C just stood there fuming in silence as Ryder adopted several different thoughtful poses, even going so far as to put a foot on Letter C's desk for one particular pose. After a moment though, he put his hands to his sides, then raised one back up and pointed at the ceiling.

"I have just the thing... man!"

While Heath (Grr) was out doing all of that, the Gatekeeper had taken it upon himself, as he was more of the Vader than the Palpatine, to investigate the breaking-in at his palace. He was curious as to how someone could do it, considering all the automated defenses.

But when he got there, with a security contractor, he was most disappointed.

"I was led to believe someone had broken in, not broken the palace..."

The Gatekeeper was referring to the front-facing wall being destroyed, several man-sized holes having been placed in it. The grounds were torn up, as though something had came from beneath, as well. Traffic was going by in the distance as per usual, used to this sort of thing.

"My Lord, I don't know what to say..." the contractor blurted out, "Your staff said it was minor damage..."

"The property damage does not concern me. I was looking forward to finding a breach in my defenses and skipping the Council meeting tonight."

"I... see."

"No. You do not."

The contractor braced.

POW!

Not very long later, Heath Ryder was back on the road... or invisible spacelanes, as it were. His ship was so bloomin' fast, or maybe it's just that long-distance travel goes by remarkably fast in universes inspired by Jason and Deadmerit, that he was able to get to his destination within the same day as he visited AlphaOmega. In any case... as he came out of hyperspace, the greenish-yellow tinted world lie before him.

"There it is, Lotsagas... last known location of my intermediate objective." Ryder remarked.

Following the coordinates he'd been given by he associates, he touched down on some flat land between various pools of bubbling acid. Ryder stepped out, not even bothering to put on a gas mask to filter the toxic fumes as his OP hair did that for him. He then pulled out an paper map and examined it. Unfortunately, it quickly withered and wilted into an unrecognizable crisp thanks to the poisonous atmosphere.

"Hrmm... Well, I shall simply go... this way!" Ryder declared, proceeding off into the nauseating wilderness.

Speaking of poison, the Gatekeeper had one last errand to do that day.

Attend the Council meeting previously alluded to.

Usually held in the Imperial Palace, the meeting had been relocated to the second-most important building on Komm - the capital building. Why the capital building was not the most important building? It symbolized democracy. And this was not a democracy.

As per usual for these meetings, the Gatekeeper entered the chamber dead last, much less animated than usual, kind of dragging his feet. He was a man of action, not words. Or he thought he was, anyway. And being in this run-down, rodent-infested pathetic excuse for a congress building was not ideal under any circumstances, except for a fight. But this was not a fight.

"Ah, there he is! Late again!" called out one of the councilmen upon seeing the Emperor stroll in.

"Why have we gathered in this abomination of a building?" another, transmitting from a distant world, demanded of the first.

"I blame the Fa'Neir Dragons, or whatever they are called. Those lizards need to be forced off this world," he replied.

"But why? They have been our Empire's allies for over a thousand -"

The Gatekeeper walked out the door.

"I am aware, Governor. But as we are gathered here we must discuss -"

"Gentlemen, gentlemen, mentlegen?" a man with a coat, cigar and top hat announced to the room, "Let this meeting officially commence!"

...

"Eh, where is Lord Gatekeeper?"

Ryder had been wandering the valleys and crevasses of Lotsagas for seemingly hours now, but had yet to see any sign of life. That is... until he came upon an actual roadsign with only one word upon it in big, bold but fading black letters:

LIFE

"Aha! I am on the right track!" Ryder declared victoriously, before continuing on past the sign.

He proceeded forward, his query no doubt nearer than ever. He had to stop every so often to ring the liquefied toxins out of his hair, before whipping it back into place. Soon, he came upon a cave in the rock face, which he paused in front of.

"Hmm... a cave. I shall attempt to draw out anyone within with some clever plays upon words." he mused, then began, "HALLO IN THERE! IT IS ME! HEAAAAAATHHHH RRRYYYYYDDDERRR! COME OUT SO WE MAY CHAT!"
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: JA-394 on Dec 04 2016, 12:33 PM
There was a rumble and a faint hiss, as out from the cave stepped a fire dragon.

Yes, you read that right. Fire Dragon.

It began snarling at Ryder, as though daring him to come closer.

Post by: Tyler294 on Dec 04 2016, 12:59 PM
Heath started at the dragon without any expression or reaction for almost a full minute. Finally, he extended his right hand and smiled.

"Hi! I'm Heath."
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: JA-394 on Dec 04 2016, 01:13 PM
The dragon snarled again, reached its head back and bellowed out a massive gust of fire...

And promptly exploded from the combustion, covering Heath with various parts of dragon.

Heath just stood there with an arm extended and a smile still on his face, as dragon blood and charred dragon chunks slowly dripped off his now soot-coated frontside. After a moment, he removed his glasses, revealing the totally pristine skin and eyes behind them, wiped off said glasses, then put them back on.

"Nice to meet you too, Dragon-man. That was a blast." he remarked with a nod at the crater in front of him, before moving on from the cave and going on his merry way once more.

Post by: JA-394 on Dec 04 2016, 01:28 PM
As Heath was going up the road he could hear a motorcycle revving in the distance and a distinct theme:

"I been everywhere, Man. I been everywhere, Man. Crossed the Deserts, bare Man. Breathed the Mountain air, Man..."

Before he had a chance to see who it was, the aforementioned motorcycle had run him down and disappeared, continuing on its way at a speed demon pace.

"Travelin' I had my share, Man. I been everywheeeeeere..."

Now with soot and dragon guts on his front, and a rather noticeable tire mark on his back, our resident Space Jockey didn't exactly look like such a hot shot anymore... Scorched? Sure. Burned? Sure. But hot? Nope.

"Sunday drivers." he muttered.

In any case, he had not choice but to continue onward.

And onward...

And onward...

Man this planet sucked...

Eventually he came to another cave, and heard another rumble behind the rocks.
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: Tyler294 on Dec 04 2016, 01:40 PM
Heath paused and waited. Surely he'd found his query this time?
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: JA-394 on Dec 04 2016, 01:45 PM
What he found was a bearded man wearing a white robe moving the giant rock with telekinesis. Definitely not his query.

As the man stepped out of the hole in the wall he looked back.

"Next time, you come to my place. I don't like this toxic dustball."

Out of the rock next came a red man with horns atop his head and wearing black robes.

"This is my kind of world! Dead, silent, away from your FATHER..."

Out of the rock last stepped his query - The Gatekeeper's little brother, Kane, color-reversed outfit and all.

He... said nothing.

In fact he didn't know why he was there.

Heath grinned as he stepped before Kane.

"Are you Kane?" he asked uselessly.

"Cain?" the man in white spun around, looking at his host and Heath, "Why you...! You killed him!"

Red-horned man looked confused.

Kane glared at the man in white.

"I have yet to kill a man today. Do not presume to be the first."

"You killed Abel you son of a bitch!"

"Who?"

"Your own brother! You killed him in cold blood!"

Kane stared off into the clouds.

"Oh, I wish I had..."

Post by: JA-394 on Dec 04 2016, 01:54 PM
"No! There shall be no more bloodshed on thi-!"

"Shut up already, ya old coot!" red horned man blurted out, "Do any of us look like we're law abiding citizens? Or Christians?"

Kane was now ignoring the two of them.

"Why should I help you? What can you do for me in return?"

"You? Kill the Gatekeeper?"

Kane started to laugh.

The two opposites behind them meanwhile had broken down into a fistfight.

Now Kane had to think.

No, not really.

"You said the magic words. Let's kill that goddamn menace."

"HEY! DON'T YOU GO SAYING MY FA-"

"HI-YAH!"

White-robed man was distracted just long enough for red-horned man to land a karate-chop to the back of the head and knock him out.

"Excellent!" Ryder proclaimed, "To my ship!"

He spun around (revealing the demonic tire tread on his back) to face the way he'd come from.

"Follow me!"

He set off to try and find his ship... wherever it was he left it...

A few hours later, the Gatekeeper had gone to bed, because even extra-galactic super-monsters have to sleep. Sometimes.

He was in the remnants of the Imperial Palace, closely guarded by over a thousand of his best men, as he lay in the largest bed in the Empire, tucked in with ornate black sheets and...

A red sleeping cap, complete with eye covers.

Post by: Tyler294 on Dec 05 2016, 07:18 PM
Just as soon as the Gatekeeper had finally gotten comfortable and fallen asleep, the door to his bedroom was kicked open and Heath Ryder and Kane came bursting in.

"Aha, Geeky-man! You will meet your doom this time!" Heath declared.
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: JA-394 on Dec 05 2016, 07:26 PM
The Gatekeeper sat up vampire-style, tearing off his cap.

"How did you get- Kane? I haven't seen you in twenty-six years! Why are you here? And who is this?"
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: Tyler294 on Dec 05 2016, 07:27 PM
Heath paused a moment, insulted that the Gatekeeper hadn't remembered him. However, he quickly forgot he was insulted as he realized this was another moment to--

"I'm HEEEEEAAAAATTTTTHHHHHH RRRRRYYYYYYDDDDDEEEEERRRRRR!!!"

--do that.

Post by: JA-394 on Dec 05 2016, 07:33 PM
The Gatekeeper was unamused.

Ignoring the resident space jockey, he looked at his bro.

"I take it this isn't a social call..."

Kane glared at him.

"Remember all those times you used to bully me in the playground at school?"

"We never went to school. That is the smoke getting to your brain. Smoke from the fire Harrington set."

"He wouldn't do that!"

"I watched him do it."

"Then how are you alive?!"

"Because I didn't die."

"I don't believe you!"

"..."

The Gatekeeper stood up.

"Let's get this over with..."

"We should take him together, K-Man." Ryder suggested, drawing his combsword.
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: JA-394 on Dec 05 2016, 07:49 PM
"No! You heard what he said! I'm taking him now!"

Kane swiftly rushed in to face the Gatekeeper in a fistfight.

And was just as swiftly met with the bed. All of it. Right in the face, Force-thrown by the Gatekeeper, sending him ricocheting off the wall and onto the floor on his back, out cold.

In case you were wondering, the bed was dented, and its frame was made of cortosis.

With his full attention on Ryder, the Gatekeeper drew his corrupted lightsaber, humming with a reverberating ... hum.

Post by: Tyler294 on Dec 05 2016, 08:09 PM
Ryder realized his plan had been foiled in a matter of a few seconds. Shrugging, he prepared to meet the Gatekeeper in a daring display of swordsmanship.

"En guarde!" he taunted, flipping him combsword around all fancy-like.

Post by: Tyler294 on Dec 06 2016, 04:23 PM
Heath's head moved backward and upward slightly and he stuck his chin out in frustration.

"I just realized I need to get a defense for that." he deadpanned.

Then the lightning struck Ryder and slammed him into the wall behind him, causing an instant KO.
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: JA-394 on Dec 06 2016, 05:00 PM
At that moment, two of the guardsmen ran in.

"My Lord!" the first saluted, and was immediately struck down by another bolt of lightning.

The second looked at the charred corpse of the first, at the KO'd bodies on the floor, then at the Gatekeeper.

"Sir?"

"That was for allowing these two into my private chambers. Now take them away."

"And him?"

The guard gestured at the charred corpse.

"..."

*ZAP*

Two more guardsmen ran in on cue.

"We uh... we'll take it from here, my Lord."

They began to haul away the bodies, off to parts unknown, having no idea if any of them were alive or not, as the Gatekeeper flipped his bed back over and began the search for the missing cap.

And there was Heath Ryder, back in a cell, with a third-of-the-way-done guillotine still being built outside (no blueprints could be found, so they had to wing it). This time, however; he had company, in the form of Kane. And the lady guard from before, since the other guards left her in there for "criminal idiocy".

Kane, for the record here, had a pair of force-suppressing handcuffs (such a thing does exist it would appear) on his wrists.

"Don't worry, K-Man! I'll get us out of here or my name isn't HEATH RYDER!" the man responsible for all of their presences here stated.

Kane looked at him, then at the guillotine.

"I can break these cuffs..."
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: Tyler294 on Dec 06 2016, 06:59 PM
"Unnecessary! I have a plan!" Heath replied enthusiastically, then turned and pointed at the lady guard, "You remember our conversation we had last we met, yes?"

"I've thought of nothing but..." she growled in irritation.

"Well, I was thinking... the parameters we set were totally unfair. While you may have been a woman in the cell, I was merely pretending to be the guard, but in reality I was not. I suggest we test the theory again, this time with a real guard."

"You're serious..."

"I'm the most serious person in the galaxy!" Heath replied.

"..."

"Come on, babe. Give it a shot? What have you got to lose?" Heath persisted.

"Fine..." she grumbled, then got up and began attempted to seduce the new guard, this one a man.

Despite being just as terrible at seduction as before... somehow it worked and the male guard walked right up to the cell and started to kiss the lady guard through the bars. Ryder quickly took advantage of the distraction, stole the keys, unlocked the cell and opened the door. He then motioned for Kane to follow. The two guards were still doing their thing and didn't even notice the door had opened. Presuming Kane followed, Ryder then closed the cell door behind them and proceeded up the stairs.

Just then, the two guards stopped messing around and pulled away from each other. The lady guard, still locked in the cell, turned around to face her companions again and congratulate Heath on the success of his plan.

"Hey, it wor..." she trailed off upon seeing the cell empty.

She immediately spun around, as did the male guard, to see Heath and Kane most of the way up the stairs and about to leave the dungeon.

"Wait... how did...?" the male guard blurted in confusion.

"Because I'm HEEEEAAAAATTTTHHHHHHH RRRRRYYYYYDDDDEEEEERRRR!!"

And with that, Heath and Kane were gone, leaving one befuddled guard guy and one pissed guard lady, who both said in unison:

"Damn it, Heath..."

And soon enough... a lot sooner than it really should be... Ryder's ship was touching down on that same dark-colored landing pad on the volcanic planet where the terrorists had built their totally original base. Approaching the door, they were once again greeted by the being who guarded it.

"What is the password?" it asked.

"Damn you!" Ryder declared confidently.

"Incorrect. That password is outdated." the being replied.

"I was just here yesterday!" Ryder exclaimed.

"Incorrect." the being repeated.

"Correct." the being replied dispassionately, before unlocking the door and drawing it open so the two could enter.

"Very secure password." Ryder mused.

Post by: Tyler294 on Dec 07 2016, 10:36 AM
Of course, the doorman was somehow hidden from sight again, behind the door. How he does that, we don't know.

Ryder took lead again, in any case, and led Kane through the halls on their way to Letter C's office. Along the way, they pair got a lot of awkward stares from the random terrorists walking the halls. Finally, they arrived and entered (since Letter C apparently isn't important enough to have a guard at his door) the office.

"Ryder, you're back... and... g... guh... you b-brought the G-g-gatekeeper?" he said, not realizing Ryder's companion was Kane.

"And it will, I assure you Letter-man!" Ryder declared, "I just need one more element to secure victory."

"You told me that Kane was that element..." C deadpanned.

Post by: JA-394 on Dec 07 2016, 12:02 PM
As the Gatekeeper was getting up that morning, he found that he had some business to take care of.

- - -

Komm was the largest known planet in multiverse with a breathable atmosphere for all attainable lifeforms and sustainable agriculture. As such, it was the perfect planet for the capital of the multiverse's largest, multi-galaxy spanning empire, the Shadow Empire.

Or so it seemed.

For eons, the planet was nearly perfect. But over time, the SE had to designate sections of the planet for its various needs as it began to outgrow the planet, and need to expand.

Such rapid terraforming, coupled with the draining and re-populating of expansive oceans, greenlands, tropical forests, polar ice caps and magma pools and others to maintain an Empire's economy, along with gigantic spacescrapers, destroyed the planet's natural beauty, even if one could not tell from the surface.

But upon a closer inspection, there was something even more ominous going on here. More ominous than the weather system being ****** to ****. More ominous than the constant flooding, the lightning strikes in the cities, the - you get the point.

The Gatekeeper spent a lot of time here. His presence over that time had changed everything. The dark side of the Force was prevalent everywhere you looked. The wilds were filled with carnivorous beasts. The oceans with carnivorous beasts. The deserts, with... carnivorous beasts.

And some were more frightening than others...

- - -

The Gatekeeper stepped off his shuttle to see a giant red crystal wrapped around one of the spacescrapers in one of the numerous districts of the Empire's capital. Recent rain had flooded the ocean nearby, but the city itself was not flooded. Yet. But this crystal was not there last night.

"Commander, what is this?" the Gatekeeper demanded of the lead man at the site, Dr. Scientist Vasul.

Vasul looked at him nervously, not expecting to find the Emperor here.

"Well, honestly, we don't know. In all of our archives we haven't found anything like it. We've evacuated the population of the scraper, but -"

"Why?"

"...Because it is a logical thing to do, my Lord?"
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: JA-394 on Dec 07 2016, 12:27 PM
After a few moments of back-and-forth, during which the Gatekeeper reminded Vasul that he was only alive because he was useful and not to challenge that, Vasul went back to his console and recited the information they had.

"It appears to be a crystalline formation. Our scanners cannot penetrate it, unfortunately. At least not our current lab scanners. We are waiting for a train carrying a load of stronger scanners."

"Where is this train?" the Gatekeeper asked.

Vasul looked at his watch, then at the calendar.

"Somewhere out that way," he gestured out at the ocean.

The Gatekeeper turned and stared out at the ocean. Something seemed amiss about this, but he couldn't put his finger on it.

- - -

*CHOO CHOO*

...

*CHOO CHOO*

"We really need to replace that horn..." a man named Steve, one of four who was guarding a large box on a flatbed car pulled by one diesel engine, commented to his compatriots.

The train was on a tressel going across the ocean.

"Always hated that," his cousin, who simply called himself 'Jobs', affirmed.

Post by: Tyler294 on Dec 07 2016, 12:42 PM
"You know what I hate more?" one of the other four guards, this one named Boyd, asked.

"What?" the fourth one, whose name has not been e-mailed to the narrator yet, inquired.

"Guard duty. And you know the thing about guard duty?" Boyd continued.

"It's incredibly boring?" the fourth guy completed the old adage.

"Nope. It's--" Boyd started to say, before suddenly a dude with buzz-cut hair and a couple big swords combat knives on his back came out of bleeding NOWHERE and booted Boyd in the face, instantly KOing him.

"AHA! All your box are belong to us!" buzz-cut declared to the other guards.

Steve turned around to face Buzz-cut but found a dude who had just uncloaked wearing a suit of gray armor and yellow lights and blasted him with a hard right hand.

"We are here for your... COMBAT KNIVES!" Chairwalker exclaimed, using excessive hand gesticulation.

Post by: Tyler294 on Dec 07 2016, 12:51 PM
"Aha! Combat knives!" Buzz-cut parroted, while pointing dramatically at the skybox.

"But... we don't have any combat knives!" the fourth guard protested.

"We will see about that!" Chairwalker exclaimed again, just as Steve got up and knocked him down with a boot.

"You ain't stealing nothing," Steve muttered.

Chairwalker jumped up with a (Combat) knife and cut off a piece of Steve's ear.

Steve came up again and busted a chair across Chairwalker's teeth helmet and they rolled off the flatbed and onto its railing, kicking and gouging in the water and blood and the ear.

Buzz-cut then made a massive swing with one of his swords combat knives and chopped loose any ropes or chains (this is an advanced combat knife, it can totally cut through chain) securing the box down.

"Stop! Hey!" guard four protested while reaching for his blaster, only to have it ripped from his hand by a Force Pull from Buzz-cut, after which guard four then exclaimed: "J-J-Jobs! Do your job!"

"They don't pay me enough to do this job..."

Jobs pulled a plastique explosive and primed it.

Chairwalker and Steve stopped their fight to look.

Buzz-cut, AKA, Ruupert, pulled out his other advanced combat knife and raised them at Jobs menacingly.

"Plastic explosive or not... you must realize, you... are... dooooomed." he threatened.

It landed at Ruupert's feet, which caused him to take a couple steps back and make motions with his hands and head back and forth at the non-existent people behind him.

"Back away! I shall deal with this plastic explosive, myself!" he declared.

"..."

"Wait... plastic expl--"

*BOOM*

And Ruupert was last seen flying head over heals back toward the caboose.

He was plastered to the caboose like in an old cartoon.

- - -

The engineer for some odd reason sped up the train.

"Tell the engineer to slow down!" Chairwalker told Steve.

"Why?"

"Because I will fall off! And I will die! And you don't want to be framed for manslaughter!"

Steve kicked him off the train and toward the caboose...

And he smashed up next to Ruupert.

At that moment, a giant whale with a squid lower body breached the surface and landed atop the flatbed and engine, crushing them and sending them to the bottom.

Except for the caboose.

And Chairwalker and Ruupert.

Meanwhile, back at where the Gatekeeper was...

"Good news sir!" a random SE officer declared, as he and a group of soldiers showed up carrying a box of sensor equipment, "We found some more advanced sensors being stored in the basement of the bakery down the street. We won't need to wait for the train."
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: JA-394 on Dec 07 2016, 01:40 PM
The Gatekeeper took the box.

Vasul got off the phone-link and took the box.

"We just lost the train. This will come in handy," he said, moving to install the equipment.

The Gatekeeper said nothing.

A few minutes later...


"Well... we have news, gentlemen," Vasul reported after scanning the crystal again, presuming the Gatekeeper and the random SE officer who brought him the box with the sensors were still present, "This crystal is actually not a crystal at all. It is in fact organic."

The Gatekeeper stopped aimlessly staring out into space and paid legitimate attention.

"Organic?" he repeated.

"More specifically, it seems to be an egg chamber."

Everyone in the room looked up.

"Eggs? Like chicken eggs?" the random SE officer wondered, "Hrmph... That's one big-ass chicken."

"It's gonna burst out and eat us all at any minute! FLEE! FLEE FOR YOUR LIVES!" one of the regular troopers screamed, before heading for the hills.

Post by: JA-394 on Dec 07 2016, 01:49 PM
The regular trooper who ran was eradicated by the guards at the door.

"Not quite. We are talking parasites," Vasul shook his head.

The Gatekeeper showed no emotion externally.

"What kind of parasites?" he asked.

"Hard to tell," was the reply, "We won't know for certain until we send a team in."

"Right!" the random officer (who's name, for the record, is Lt. Rand M. Mann) snapped to attention, "Porkins! Ready the squad! Usain, run back to the bakery and get those toxin filtering masks we found in the flour cabinet! Oh, and draft the baker into to the squad to replace Timmons over there..."

He motioned at the trooper who had tried to run, only to get obliterated by the guards.

"If the Baker isn't there, recruit his wife. If his wife isn't there, draft his son. If his son isn't there, draft his daughter. If his daughter isn't there, draft his dog. If the dog isn't there either, confiscate two dozen doughnuts for the inconvenience and get them over here pronto! MOVE IT!" Lt. Mann barked.

Trooper Usain bolted out of the building to get to the bakery, while Porkins made the squad check over their weapons. Lt. Mann seemed pleased as he turned back to the Gatekeeper and Vasul.

"Do not fret, gentlemen; we'll get to the bottom of this!" he declared.

Post by: JA-394 on Dec 09 2016, 11:31 AM
A short while later, Lt. Mann and his squad were standing in ankle-deep water just a few feet away from the organic crystal entrenched within and around the spacescraper. Dr. Scientist Vasul and his staff (Unless they were replaced for incompetence) would be on commlink throughout the procedure.

"Well gentlemen, here it is. The greatest scientific procedure of the past 45 minutes. With any luck, we can make it the greatest scientific procedure of the past week. Good luck in there!"

There was some mumbling on his side, and Vasul spoke again.

"Oh, yes, your instructions. You are to infiltrate the structure, ascertain its full nature and status and, if necessary, terminate any lifeforms present inside. There is no timeframe for this mission. Usual Imperial disclaimer: If you die, you will be forgotten. If you give up, you will be killed. This time our Emperor is on site to forget and or kill you himself!"

...

"That is all."

*Comm silence*

The reddish structure stood before like a shadow in the night - it was night now, by the way, at least here - and looking up they could not determine where building began and crystal ended. Its color had faded drastically and had began to blend in with its surroundings.

On the ground however, in the ankle-deep water that really shouldn't be there, it was obvious enough to make insertion.

Post by: Tyler294 on Dec 09 2016, 11:49 AM
One of the troopers came up with a plasma torch and began cutting into the crystals exterior. After making a few smaller holes as tests, he proceeded to cut out a large, doorframe-shaped hole that the squad would enter through. That done, Lt. Man and his squad entered.

"You have point, Porkins." Mann ordered.

Porkins, a slightly more hefty fellow, but also more heavily armed than the others, took over the lead at this point. Behind him was Lt. Mann, who was munching a doughnut with one hand and holding a blaster pistol with his other. The rest of the squad filed in behind them, then the plasma torch guy entered last, bringing the torch with him in case they needed to cut through anything else.

Post by: JA-394 on Dec 09 2016, 12:01 PM
After a little bit of walking, during which someone was hopefully recording the surroundings that were much brighter inside than out. Almost crimson in appearance on the walls. The floor was a messy mix of crimson and dark red, almost black, as was the ceiling. Small pods hung from the walls and ceiling, colored red, and it was a steady uphill climb as they were going up a spacescraper.

Vasul, who was watching through somebody's shoulder camera, probably Mann's, had left his jovial attitude at the cut-out door.

"The textures of the floors and walls look almost like dried blood," he commented, making a note.

It was anything but dry, however. Every step the squad took was like walking on lillypads, and Lt. Mann was finding his doughnut very unpleasant, no doubt. The aroma in the air, not to mention the smell, stuck to everything.

Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: Tyler294 on Dec 09 2016, 12:15 PM
Actually, how the hell Lt. Mann was even eating the doughnut in the first place is a great mystery, given the squad was supposedly wearing toxin-filtering masks that Usain had gone to fetch. Of course, even then the smell would still have come through the masks, since smell itself wasn't a toxin.

"Is... the crystal a lifeform?" one of the troopers wondered aloud.

"Keep an eye on the pods." Lt. Mann suggested, "In all likelihood those are eggs."

One of the twitchier soldiers instantly shifted his weapon aim toward the ceiling, and all the pods. But he didn't fire and just kept following along.

Post by: JA-394 on Dec 09 2016, 12:40 PM
Vasul looked through his notes.

"According to earlier scans, the crystal is a parasitic lifeform," he commented to the trooper, then added to Mann, "See if you can get a reading on one of those pods. I might be able to check it for life readings."
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP

"Trooper, hand me that scanner." Mann ordered.

The trooper handed Mann a stud finder.

"Trooper, where did you learn to distinguish you scanners?" Mann deadpanned.

"At the academy sir!" the trooper replied.

"Here on Komm?" Mann questioned, wondering how bad the academy had gotten since he went there.

"No sir! The Oregonias Branch, sir!" the trooper replied.

"That explains it." Mann chuckled, muttering something about third-world planets, before snatching the correct scanner from said trooper and beginning to scan the pod.

Post by: JA-394 on Dec 09 2016, 12:53 PM
Vasul didn't get the reference.

But he did start his analysis.

"Lesse... temperatures are surprisingly low, almost ground-level, in fact. Nothing appears to be moving in there. Nothing of real interest. No, I would say there is no life in these pods. Or at least in that one. Go ahead and break it open. There does seem to be something in it, but whatever it is is most certainly not a living thing."

Post by: Tyler294 on Dec 09 2016, 01:07 PM
"Copy that." Mann replied to Vasul, "Trooper, hand me that knife."

The trooper gave Mann a combat knife.

"No you buffoon, this is a combat knife. It is meant for combat. There is nothing alive here, therefor there is no combat involved!" Mann snapped, giving the trooper the knife back, "Give me a non-combat knife!"

The trooper gave Mann a butter knife.

Mann looked at it, found it satisfactory, and began cutting the pod open.
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: JA-394 on Dec 09 2016, 01:19 PM
Vasul thought he heard a faint echo of combat knife from somewhere across the ocean.

"There it is again..." he muttered.

As the pod was cut open, several bloodstained humanoid bones fell out, along with torn, bloody and tattered rags. It quickly became apparent what they were.

"That's not what I expected to see..." one of Vasul's lab mates said to himself.

"Okay so here's the thing," the man himself came back on the line, "That appears to be an Imperial citizen. Or what's left of him."

"From where? I thought the building had been evacuated." Mann questioned.

The Oregonianian trooper was getting nostalgic feelings of home for some reason.
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: JA-394 on Dec 09 2016, 01:27 PM
"I did too..." Vasul agreed with Mann, "I oversaw the evacuation in fact. If every one of those pods are filled with bones, that's..."

Vasul did some quick math.

"Judging from the amount of pods you have already seen, and the sheer size of the crystal you have yet to cover... we could be looking at well over a million lives lost. But from where?"
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP

"And how did they get here?" one of the troopers asked worriedly.

"Curious indeed... I see no appendages capable of offensive action." Mann added, "How did this creature capture them?"

Post by: JA-394 on Dec 09 2016, 01:47 PM
"I don't know. But it is our job - well, your job, technically - to find out," said Vasul from the safety of his lab.

"If this all goes south, by the way, I just want you guys to know... the Emperor has pre-authorized the Uberweapon to bombard the crystal. In this worst-case scenario, the vessel will train a planetary laser upon the parasite and, well, boom. As it stands now, however, with the discovery of deceased citizens, I am authorizing lethal force against anything you find in there. This mission is no longer to examine. This is to exterminate a threat to the Empire."

Post by: Tyler294 on Dec 09 2016, 03:32 PM
"Acknowledged, sir! We won't let you or the emperor down!" Mann replied.

"Uh, sir... if the Uberweapon is prepared to bombard the site, why don't we just pull out and do that instead?" a trooper asked.

"But, that would be turning turning down work... Why would one ever turn an opportunity to work? Work for the emperor I mean." the Oregonianian trooper retorted.

Mann smiled and slapped said trooper on the shoulder.

"That's the spirit! Son, there's hope for you yet." he stated, "Alright... Porkins! Let's get a move on!"

Porkins nodded, then took up point once more.

What felt like an eternity later, the squad was on the 42nd floor.

"Lt. Mann? You've got an incoming parasitic life-form. Apart from you and your squad it is the only one we can pick up in this whole mess of a tower," the voice of Vasul broke comm silence.

"Hold up squad!" Mann commanded.

Porkins kept advancing.

"Porkins, hold up!" Mann snapped.

"HOLD UP!"

"No I'm alright--"

A reddish worm-snake with a mouth like a sand burrower and legs like a centipede whirled around the corner.

Snap went Porkin's neck as the creature's mouth went around his neck.

Crackle went his bones as the creature did a death barrel roll.

Pop went his head and everything else as it swallowed him whole like a snake and just kinda lay there thinking about what it did.

"Poor Porkins..." Mann signed.

"Sir, shouldn't we shoot that thing!?" someone exclaimed.

"Probably. Open fire!" Mann proclaimed.

The squad opened fire on the snake-thing.

The snake-thing didn't have long to think about what it did as it was dead in seconds from all the shots. Its belly split open revealing Porkins, and its second-latest victim, some kind of elf.

"Well, that's that then," Vasul proclaimed from the safety of his lab, "Anyone have any explosives? I would like to avoid leveling half the city."

"Wait... that was it? That made this whole thing?" one of the troopers blurted-out.

"Trooper, hand me those explosives." Mann commanded of the Oregonianian trooper, whose name was simply Jei.

Trooper Jei handed Mann a firecracker.

"Try again, son." Mann sighed, handing it back.

Trooper Jei then handed Mann the correct pack of explosives.

"Doctor-Scientist Vasul, we have the explosives." Mann reported.

"Good. Now place them - uh, wait a minute..."

Comm silence...

"Uh, Lord Gatekeeper decrees you to place the explosives on whomever it was that asked if that one hostile built this whole structure, then tie him to its corpse and detonate at a safe distance. Also tell him the answer is no, you dimwit. Further tests on the wreckage will determine the answer to that."

Mann looked over at that particular trooper, who had heard the whole thing of course and was petrified.

"The answer is no, you dimwit! Further tests on the wreckage will determine the answer to that!" Mann snapped at him.

"But..."

"Men, seize Trooper Dimwit and fasten him to the dead parasite!" Mann commanded.

The other troopers did so without question. They didn't like Trooper Dimwit anyway. Once he was satisfactorily tied down to the dead parasite... with what we will leave to your imagination... Mann walked over and literally placed the explosives on top of the trooper.

"Now gentlemen, we need to get to a safe distance. Move out!" he directed.

After exiting the crystal-scraper...

BANG

Floor 42, and Trooper Dimwit, were no more. The upper levels of the crystal and building began to collapse. Unfortunately, they were falling...

"Uh, Dr. Scientist?"

Vasul was already gone.

"Well shit..."

BANG

The debris, or most of it, crushed Vasul's former makeshift lab building, killing everyone inside it. Vasul and the Gatekeeper, of course, were safely out of harm's reach.

"Job well done, gentlemen!" Lt. Mann laughed, from where he and his squad were also "safely" observing the destruction, "Another threat to the Empire eradicated! I would say something about losing good men and honorable dead and whatnot, but all we lost were a coward, a rebel and idiot, so I shall say nothing of the sort."

He then opened a communications channel back to Vasul.

"Dr. Scientist, this is Lieutenant Mann. Mission complete, any further instructions?"

"Not at present. You have earned a break, gentlemen. But keep yourselves available. Working with our Emperor has its... benefits... and he suspects you will be needed again, as with the deaths of everyone in my lab, you are now the highest-ranking squad in this sector. So congratulations on your unofficial promotion."

The water meanwhile was rising very slowly, barely noticeable.

"In the meantime, I believe I will be checking the weather. If this rain doesn't let up, we may need to raise the flood walls again."

Meanwhile...

Heath had taken Kane down into the lower levels of the AlphaOmega base, where the terrorist's had their diabolical labs. And their diabolical laboratories too. In one such laboratory, Heath was shuffling through a desk of random charts and paperwork, in search of something seemingly of great importance. Kane and Letter C were standing around nearby.

Finally, Heath pulled out a particular chart and set it on the table dramatically. It was... the periodic table. Heath then pointed at one of the empty squares and stated.

"THERE! ...Is my missing element!"

"It is not the paper, K-Man! It is what is not on this paper! You see, science leaves some of these spaces blank for undiscovered elements... and this spot here has yet to be discovered. But, using a complex algorithm I definitely did not come up with myself, I have determined that the missing element is a mineral with the abbreviation Ja. Now this element, Jatainium, is the missing key to creating the necessary armor and weapons needed to defeat the Gatekeeper in close combat!" Ryder explained.

Letter C just sighed.

"Now all we need to do is find a planet that has deposits of Jatainium, mine it, and forge for ourselves those things I just mentioned! It is a flawless plan!" Ryder concluded.

Soon, Ryder, Kane and three mercenaries from AlphaOmega, were sitting in Heath's ship awaiting the arrival of the so-called "Eighter Fray". They'd been sitting there a couple hours now and the mercenaries were now playing go-fish in the back of the ship while Ryder and Kane were in the cockpit.

"It'll be here... any second now... any second now... see! THERE!" Ryder exclaimed, "No wait; that's a shooting star..."

Kane, who barely fit in the cockpit as it was, came to attention and bumped his head on the ceiling.

"This better work out, Heath..."

Post by: Tyler294 on Dec 12 2016, 05:54 PM
"It will work out, K-man. It always works out! Why, it'll work out or my name isn't HEEEEAAAAATHHHH RRRHOLY CRAP!"

Heath flipped out of his captain's chair as the Eighter Fray came out of Hyperspace right in from of them. So close in fact, that it rubbed against the nose of the smaller vessel and caused it to begin a slow spin in place.

Kane mentally facepalmed and grabbed the controls, attempting to veer the ship away from an explosive doom... only to realize he had no idea how to space-fly.

So he just held the controls, blocking Heath from doing so.

Post by: Tyler294 on Dec 12 2016, 06:21 PM
Heath was up in an instant and trying to regain the controls.

"We need to latch onto one of their auxiliary hatches to enact entry!" he snapped.

Of course, little did he know the larger freighter had already discovered their presence and was moving to lock on tractor beams.
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: JA-394 on Dec 12 2016, 06:25 PM
And once they had...

"We've been hit with tractor beams," Kane said to Heath, "This may work to our advantage. We can blow through the hangar and take control of the ship itself instead of trying to smuggle."
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: Tyler294 on Dec 12 2016, 06:33 PM
"Ah, that is a fantastic plan, K-Man! I can see I am rubbing off you." Ryder remarked with a wink.

The ship was soon being drawn into the relatively spacious cargo bay/hangar.
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: JA-394 on Dec 12 2016, 06:41 PM
Kane said nothing.

- - -

A group of security guards were walking toward the hangar.

"You been by Auxiliary Hangar B?" one of them asked through his commlink.

"Yeah, why?"

"Thought I heard something down there. Could be space pirates."

"... We cleared that hangar out earlier today. There aren't any space pirates on this ship!"

"I dunno... I'm not going down there alone..."

The group stopped just outside the hangar as a third guard said;

"Let's go check it out right now. We'll prove to ya there are no space pirates!"

- - -

Kane, Ryder, and the four mercs were waiting behind the ship door as the four guards approached, with Kane in the front, Ryder next to him, and the guards at the flanks.

The scardey-guard opened the door, and got blasted by a bolt of Force Lightning.

Another one of them looked inside and saw the assembly.

"Oh shit! Space pirates!"

Post by: Tyler294 on Dec 12 2016, 06:52 PM
Heath leaped forth, combsword in a downward slash that parted one of the guards. And we don't mean parted his hair...

The mercs also opened fire with their blaster weapons and began to disembark down the ramp.
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: JA-394 on Dec 12 2016, 06:55 PM
The guards, whom did not have blasters, projectiles, or ranged weapons of any kind, were murdered swiftly, leaving Kane to wonder why they had just killed a gaggle of unarmed men. Deciding not to dwell on the matter, he too left the ship as the sixsome made their way out of the hangar.

"Ryder!" Kane bellowed upon exiting the hangar with people in tow.
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: Tyler294 on Dec 12 2016, 06:57 PM
"That's me!" Heath replied.

The four mercs, which had originally been three but somehow multiplied into four during the card game, were following silently while sweeping the hangar for more hostiles.

Post by: Tyler294 on Dec 12 2016, 07:04 PM
That was some game of cards...

"We're in it!" Ryder replied.

They were surrounded by crates and cargo of all sorts.

Post by: JA-394 on Dec 12 2016, 07:06 PM
Now Kane was wondering what kind of cargo ship carried their cargo right outside their outgoing hangars. That's just asking for spacefaring thieves.

"Okay. What are we looking for again?"
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: Tyler294 on Dec 12 2016, 07:12 PM
A ship that uses every square inch of space for cargo, despite already having a ton of space for cargo.

"Jatonium alloys!" Ryder replied, heading for the nearest crate and opening it.
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: JA-394 on Dec 12 2016, 07:15 PM
Inside was bronze and gold alloys.

Kane wanted to punch himself right now.

Post by: Tyler294 on Dec 12 2016, 07:27 PM
"Ah, exactly what I was looking for!" Ryder declared, then added in the direction of the mercs, "Come haul this onto the ship!"

He moved on to another crate, opened it, found he didn't care for the contents, then moved on.
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: JA-394 on Dec 12 2016, 07:30 PM
Now K-man REALLY wanted to punch himself.
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: Tyler294 on Dec 13 2016, 06:40 AM
Ryder finally found the rest of what he needed; a crate filled with raw ore samples of silver, copper and iron. Complete with the gold, he now had the four most basic ores for pre-hardmode players. Oh, and bronze was nice too. Good for plumbing and stuff. In any case, he motioned for the mercs to haul that away too, before approaching Kane again.

"We rocked this mission here, K-Man! Once we melt down the metals and forge them into armor, we will be... unstoppable!" he cackled.

One of the mercs swiped a gold bar from the first crate and hid it in his jacket, then whistled innocently as he helped haul the crate toward Heath's ship.

"What about the ship?" Kane gestured to the ... everything around them.
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: Tyler294 on Dec 13 2016, 10:40 AM
"Oh... right! The ship! Yes, we need to take the ship, then we won't have to load those very heavy crates in my ship." Ryder agreed.

"Oh... now you tell us..." one of the mercs huffed, after they'd all nearly killed themselves (well, they all pulled their backs or necks out) hauling the first crate into Ryder's cargo bay.

"Gather your weapons, merc-men! We're gonna take the bridge, uh-huh." Heath declared, already heading for the cargo hangar's exit.
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: JA-394 on Dec 13 2016, 10:46 AM
And so it was. After liberating their way to the bridge, they were met with three assassin droids.

"Irritated Declaration - It has been extremely difficult to track you down, Ryder and Kane," one of them said.

"Quick Clarification - " Started another, "But now that we have found you, we hope we can facilitate communications."

"Unnecessary Addendum - And put an end... to hostilities," said the third.
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: Tyler294 on Dec 13 2016, 10:49 AM
"Ah! I knew the Geeky-man was getting nervous! No doubt he has sent these metal-men here to negotiate his surrender!" Ryder laughed.

The mercs exchanged confused and worried glances.
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: JA-394 on Dec 13 2016, 10:52 AM
"Unnecessary Clarification - we are not here to negotiate anyone's surrender."

"Probing Query - we are, however, curious, as to why you chose to come to this isolated freighter. There is nothing here that our instruments can detect."
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: Tyler294 on Dec 13 2016, 11:02 AM
"We came here to liberate this ship of its stores of Jatonium!" Ryder replied.

One of the ships crew, possibly the captain, suddenly jumped up out of nowhere.

"NO! YOU CANNOT! That stuff is deadly and unstable! You don't know what yo-GACK!" he yelped, as a merc instinctively (his instincts are slow) shot him before he could finish.

Ryder for once had a very blank expression non his face, as though he didn't actually know what to say to that. Not that one would be able to see it, given he was wearing sunglasses.
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: JA-394 on Dec 13 2016, 11:07 AM
"Thanks for telling him our plan..." Kane muttered, unaffected by the brazen murder, "So what are doing here, droids?"

"Self-evident answer - wherever you try to run, we will be there, armed and ready."

"... That doesn't really answer the question but I digress."

Kane zapped one of the droids, as the other two opened fire on the mercs.
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: Tyler294 on Dec 13 2016, 11:16 AM
Ryder immediately rocketed forward, assisted by his boots, and halved the second droid with his combsword.

The third assassin droid shot one of the mercs in the leg immediately, causing him to collapse. It then turned and shot another in the upper left chest, just below the shoulder, hurling the merc back into the wall from the impact. The third merc fired a couple poor-aimed shots trying to take it down, but missed them all and had her gun get hit and explode in her hands, charring her entire front. The assassin droid then turned toward the fourth merc, who... instinctively... shot it down with one blast before it could finish.
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: JA-394 on Dec 13 2016, 11:40 AM
With the droids finished, Kane sat down at the controls, then remembered he had no idea how to fly, and allowed Heath to do it.

"Get us out of here."
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: Tyler294 on Dec 13 2016, 11:48 AM
The other mercs, all somehow alive but wounded to varying degrees, just glared at the fourth merc. After about a minute of staring he slowly drawled:

"...What...?"

"With pleasure!" Heath grinned at Kane, then cracked his knuckles and took the helm.

And so ended another exciting episode of The Adventures of Kane and Heeeeeeaaaaattttthhhhhhh Rrrrryyyyydddddeeeeerrrr!

*****REMOTE MINING FACILITY - PLANET OF KOMUNIST*****

A single light freighter drew into the atmosphere of the small, unassuming world. On the outside, it appeared to be nothing more than a peaceful inter-galactic cargo transport, but was, in reality, meant for a far less nefarious purpose. It was actually a type of heavy combat landing craft, developed in secret by the Galactic Republic of the neighboring Prime Galaxy. Within the ship was an assembly consisting of two platoons of Republic Special Forces Commandos, disguised in mercenary garb, along with a little over a dozen exiled Jedi.

So what was their mission? Well, it was ultimately to assassinate the Gatekeeper, who had been determined to be a threat by the highest ranking members of the Senate and the Supreme Chancellor... but their more immediate mission... well that was up for debate...

"So why are we attacking a mining post?" the ship's captain wondered aloud.

Post by: JA-394 on Dec 13 2016, 12:37 PM
The lead commando leaned back in his seat.

"Something about low defenses and high technology... which I agree with, but what I don't agree with is the Jedi saying they can locate our primary with mining computers!"

"Not mining computers; the manifest!" came a stone-solid voice.
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP

"But, how does the Komunist Manifest help us find the Gatekeeper?" the captain wondered while twirling his mustache.

Post by: JA-394 on Dec 13 2016, 12:47 PM
"Ask the Jedi..." the lead commando muttered.

"We can trace the mining shipments back to the Gatekeeper, who surely ordered everything on this world!" the stone-voice said again.

"You know what all great leaders do?" the commando asked.

Before the Jedi had time to respond...

"Delegate..."

"Shouldn't you both be getting back there then?" the captain then asked, "We will be landing in less than two minutes."

The first mate was whistling the tune "What Do You Do With A Drunken Spacer?" in the background, while doing all the piloting and directing that the captain was not. Delegation, man.

"Oh. We're leaving from the back..."

And left for the back as well.

Because ya know, the boarding ramp is always attached to the bridge... except not. Then again, we just saw a cargo bay attached to a hangar, so maybe people shouldn't be surprised at anything ship-design-wise anymore.

At the disembarkation area, there were a couple dozen commandos and a dozen Jedi loitering around waiting for their numbers to be called. Some of the Jedi were meditating, others talking with the commandos, one was writing poetry, and another was standing back from the rest glaring at them with her one good eye... except she couldn't see them all with her limited field of view, so she had to turn her head side to side to see them all. It was unnecessarily exhausting. She was happy to see the stony Jedi return.

"'Bout time." she grumbled.

The stony Jedi, who refused to wear a shirt and shoes at all times, was a very large, very fat, somewhat muscular and somewhat athletic Zabrak. His face looked like a stone, with little stones sprouting out of it (His horns). He carried a brown doublesaber, perhaps to match the stone look, and wore red pants and what looked like a shower cap but was in fact an ornate hood torn off from the jacket he refused to wear.

"What time is it?" he asked.
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: Tyler294 on Dec 13 2016, 01:36 PM
His compatriot was a badly scarred human woman with long, messy black hair, a metal eyepatch/panel and several other cybernetic implants scattered about her face. Her clothing was all either black or charcoal grey, consisting of full pants, combat boots, a belt upon which hung her lightsaber, black gloves and a black belly shirt and various dark-colored arm trappings that served no purpose other than to make her look cool... and mean. She really did like rather mean.

"Time to punish something." she replied to him in her annoyingly youthful and child-like voice (which she hated), while still scowling at others in the assembly.

"That is not the Jedi way." one of their fellow Jedi remarked.

He was standing nearby with his head bowed and his hands folded in a prayer-like pose. We can suppose he was meditating, like a good Jedi... but if he were actually a "good" Jedi, whether in the ethical or capable sense, he would not be here right now.

"Yes. As the Jedi code teaches us, 'There is no Passion, there is Serenity,' another Jedi, this one kneeling, echoed.

"But if Passion does not exist, how do you explain the Sith?" stony-man replied.

"The Sith rely on their Passion for their-"

"But you just said there is no such thing as Passion..."

"But that is the Jedi code." the first repeated firmly, agreeing with the second.

"Code this!" the lady Jedi, whose name shall now be revealed to be Diamanta Saffris, snapped at the first Jedi, before giving him a slow left-hook to the nose.

Of course, that particular Jedi was meditating and thus had his eyes closed and wasn't looking, so the blow connected and sent him reeling across the room and into one of the hallways out of sight.

Post by: JA-394 on Dec 13 2016, 03:38 PM
The second Jedi opened his eyes upon hearing the thump.

"Hey!"

The fat stone fellow, known as Rhinestone, randomly decided to punch somebody as well. Except it wasn't the second Jedi. Oh no. He punched the Twi'Lek Jedi off to his left. His hook carried a lot more meat behind it, and so this Jedi's nose was outright broken.

The commando then tried to punch Rhinestone in the face.

Post by: JA-394 on Dec 13 2016, 03:46 PM
Rhinestone caught the fist, pulled the commando close, and bopped him over the head with a meathook.

The Twi'lek Jedi tried to intervene to save his friend, and he/she... really it's an it, got a similar treatment.

The two collapsed with a thud as a bunch of other commandos and Jedi ran over, one of which get blindside slugged by Diamanta. The rest all tried to surround and restrain Rhinestone.

They were successful... to a point, and then Rhinestone began to roll downhill and took them all to the wall of the craft, bopping and smacking them all on the top of the head as they went.
Title: The-Ambigiously-Canon-Dawnbreaker-Ancient-Super-Villain-War-Of-Boredom-RP
Post by: Tyler294 on Dec 13 2016, 08:14 PM
And so half a platoon of commandos were bowled over by a rolling rhinestone, along with a Jedi or two. In the process, some of them went flying into other commandos and Jedi, who got angry with the people that had bumped into them rather than the guy who made them do it. Pretty soon practically everyone in the landing party was punching-out someone else in the landing party...

Save for one guy, who had his back to the whole fiasco and was amping himself up on some heavy music in preparation for the impending battle. Soon enough, the ship had landed and the boarding ramp lowered. Immediately that commando rushed out of the ship, rifle raised to fire.

"CHARGE!!! YEEAAAAHHHH!!"

An alarm went off almost immediately somewhere in the base as the workers ran for cover and the Shadowtroopers - wait, why are there Shadowtroopers at a remote mining outpost? - took up positions.

Meanwhile, no one had followed Sir Charge Alot out of the craft.

Seeing the Shadowtroopers take up positions, the lone commando let out another battle whoop.

"COME ON! LET'S SEE WHAT YOU GOT! SHOW 'EM GUYS!!!" he bellowed.

No cry. No shooting. No nothing.

"Guys?" the commando asked, skidding to a halt and looking back.

All he could see was a couple unconscious bodies slowly sliding down the well-polished boarding ramp, along with the faint sound of various things making thudding sounds inside the ship.

"Oh..." the commando gulped, before turning back to the face the Shadow Troopers that now no doubt all had their guns aimed at him, "...drat..."

A few minutes later...

Two Jedi emerged from the ship, the smaller of the two dusting her hands off as she did. Everyone else was unconscious, save for that one commando that actually did his job correctly, who was a little more than unconscious. Some days it pays to slack it seems. Anyway, two Jedi were coming down the boarding ramp...

The ramp was surrounded by Shadowtroopers with their weapons aimed up it.

In the background, a lone figure was approaching, stepping over the body of the downed commando. He was donned in Shadowtrooper armor, but this one had red markings and did not carry a blaster.

Post by: JA-394 on Dec 13 2016, 08:39 PM
"It is... just look at that sign."

Rhinestone pointed at a large billboard hanging over the small industrial building. It read, SE Galactic Subsidiary 20052.

They had attacked a mining station owned and operated by SE Galactic, the Empire's military arm, headed by - you guessed it - the Gatekeeper.

"Did I make a miscalculation?"

"Hey. The number is 20052. That obviously means its a low priority in the base rankings, right?"

The lone trooper finally approached.

"So. The Republic finally deems to send an exploration force our way. I am curious, and you will enlighten me; what happened in there?"

He gestured to the hold full of bodies.

"You are carrying lightsabers. You must be from the Republic. The Sith have already been to Mudara, and their ships don't look anything like that," was the reply.

"What if we aren't Republic?" Rhinestone asked the trooper.

"Then you will be executed. As it stands you are only still breathing due to this sector's Lord's tolerance-"

"We're Republic. See that Twi'lek in there? He's not."

Diamanta just blinked a few times with her one good eye.

"We get to keep the ship, right?" she asked after a moment.

"Of course. Just without your long range communications," the trooper grinned, not that they could see it... "Don't want you warning the Republic of what you found here, now do we?"

"Why is a... remote... small... unimportant mining post so... important?" Diamanta asked, leaning to the side to peak at the facility over the trooper's shoulder.

"Jatonium of course!" one of the troopers answered immediately.

"Shut up!" the red-marked one elbowed him.

"Jatonium...?" Diamanta drawled slowly.

***

At that moment, the captain had just come down to the troop bay of the ship to check on the progress of the assault, only to find the entire ship's compliment of combat units incapacitated. He stood amidst the unconscious Jedi and commandos, mouth hanging open, wondering what sort of horror could have defeated this many fighting men and women so fast...

...then he faintly heard a Shadowtrooper blurting something about Jatonium outside...

"Jatonium!? That stuff is deadly and unstable! The whole planet could blow! If the miners have weaponized it..."

"..."

"..."

And back to the bridge he went in a flash.

"Disable their comm systems and get them out of here. Now." the red-trooper barked as he turned around to walk away with a sigh.

The Shadowtroopers moved in to do just that.

Except at that moment, the ship abruptly lifted off the platform, listing to one side slightly and accidentally dumping all the KO'd Jedi and commandos out the still-open boarding ramp and into a heap on the platform, before the captain finally remembered to delegate someone to retract said boarding ramp and close the door. Then the ship blasted off and rapidly began to fade into the horizon.

"Gall damn it..." Diamanta muttered as she looked up and watched the ship flee.

Post by: JA-394 on Dec 14 2016, 01:50 PM
A medium-sized, fork-shaped (Because wedge shapes are so GE) appeared out of hyperspace just ahead of the fleeing transport and began to hail the station.

"We are picking up weapon discharges down there, is something wrong?" its captain's voice came over broadcast.

Just then, the transport, being unable to maneuver quickly enough, smashed into its bridge and exploded, setting off a chain-reaction of explosions that destroyed the vessel and began raining debris down on the facility, as the death screams drowned out the lead trooper's head set.

The lead trooper took off his helmet, eyes widened in sorrow and put his hand over his heart.

"Huh..." Diamanta cold-heartedly shrugged, "Don't see that every day."

The unconscious commandos and Jedi started to come to, saw what was going on, and joined the SE troop leader in a moment of silence for the fallen. Or maybe they were all thanking God the captain of that ship was stupid enough to dump them all on the platform before blowing himself up.

One of the Shadowtroopers pumped a shotgun and blew off the Twi'lek's head.

Rhinestone eyed the display.

Post by: Tyler294 on Dec 14 2016, 04:32 PM
Nobody paid any mind to the recently deceased Twi'lek, except the guy who'd gotten upset with Rhinestone for punching said Twi'lek earlier.

"Hey! What'd you do that for!?" he snapped at the Shadowtrooper, then turned and punched the trooper in the face.

And so the fist-fight resumed, this time including the Shadowtroopers and no doubt eventually the miners. We can assume it was glorious, but sadly our attention must be directed elsewhere...

---Komm - Former Site of the Parasitic Red Crystal---

Dr. Scientist Vasul, stood atop his new makeshift science lab, looked down at the ever-rising water levels.

"HOW HIGH'S THE WATER?" he called down below.

. . .

A sonar probe jetted up out of the water, followed by a heavily-modified Imperial astromech. It whistled something.

A protocol droid next to Vasul said, "Eight feet high and rising, Sir."

"Hmm..."

Vasul looked out at the ocean in the distance. The rain had indeed let up, but the water was still rising. Why?

"Does anyone have a line to one of the ships up in the atmosphere?" he asked.

- - -

SE Patrol Craft Limbus

"Yes, Dr. Scientist?" the captain of the Limbus spoke into his commlink, "What can a scout vessel possibly do to assist your research?"

...

"What? A flood? You want us to... Oh. Yes, we can absolutely do that. Just one moment."

He looked around the bridge.

"SENSORY!" he hollered.

"Captain, Sir!" the man in charge of the sensors looked up with a salute.

"Komm is experiencing heavy flooding, and Dr. Scientist Vasul is calling on us! Scan the West Coast off the Isle of the Rock. Report your findings!"

"Sir!"

- - -

"Dr. Scientist, this is Captain Lipscomb of the SEV Limbus! Our scanners have detected movement in the trench West of the Isle of the Rock heading towards your location! Readings identify as a lifeform, over and out!"

*Click*

"A life form... and they're detecting it from..." Vasul started to say, when a tsunami alarm went off in the city, and all the flooded water began to race out into the ocean, and the coastline began to recede.

Post by: Tyler294 on Dec 14 2016, 05:17 PM
Vasul's communicator went off again.

"Foreman Brandt here, I don't know what you did, Dr. Scientist, but the water is receding. Excellent work!" the voice of one of the civil engineers, who was in a boat down by the levies, congratulated him.

Apparently he was deaf to the tsunami alarms.

"Foreman, you need to get out of there! A tsunami is going to hit soon! And there is something else out there!" Vasul shouted into his headset.

"The pastrami is going to hit the moon? And there's something trout pear? What are you talking about?" Brandt replied in confusion, "Elaborate, man!"

Yep. Definitely deaf.

But everyone else was evacuating the site, or trying to, like good Imperial citizens.

***DEEP SPACE - ALPHAOMEGA COMMAND CRUISER***


"We just received word from Ryder, sir. He has secured the materials he needs and is en route to the Forge of Sinai, on the planet Moab, to build his armor." one of the terrorist communication officer's reported.

"Good. Continue to monitor his progress. Update me if there are any developments." spoke the leader of the terrorists, a grizzled-looking man in a long, black military-coat known as "Letter A".

"Aye, sir." the comm officer replied.

"What of the transmission we intercepted in Sector 70?" A inquired.

"The frequency was a low-security Shadow Empire distress call." the officer answered, "The facility in question is registered as a minor mining base."

"A... minor... mining... base." Letter A slowly said.

"..."

"Go on."

"Anyway, the attackers were not immediately identified in the transmission, but supposedly an SE warship responded. We haven't intercepted any further communications in the sector since then." the radio man continued.

"Sounds like nothing more than a pirate raid, but continue to monitor the sector just in case." Letter A commanded, "I will be in my office."

With that, the aging, but still fit and healthy ex-soldier made his way back to his office buried deeper in the innards of the ship. The office itself wasn't particularly impressive, but it had another, larger room accessible via a doorway behind and to the right of A's desk. Within was what amounted to a gym room of sorts, complete with weights, exercise machines, and a punching bag. However, half the room was devoted to actual combat training, with a short pistol range and training droids. At the center of the room, however, was a holocommunicator, as all villainous sorts need to have one.

Letter A approached the communicator and activated it, placing his hands behind his back as the device fired to life. The connection was poor, so the holo-display flickered and buzzed as the visage of a man in a hood filled the room.

"General." the hooded man greeted.

"Awaiting your edict, sir." Letter A replied with a slight blow.

"I sense that the Republic and its Jedi have made a catastrophic blunder. They now teeter on the edge of a dangerous precipice. Should they go over, they shall not survive. Without them to counterbalance the Gatekeeper in the Prime Galaxy, the entirety of the Twin Galaxies are sure to fall under his shadow. You must be ready."


Letter A nodded his head. He did not know yet that the disaster his superior spoke of was the source of the distress signal his men had just intercepted. Regardless, he knew the weak and indecisive Republic would stand no chance against the Shadow Empire, and a war would only empower the regime and heighten security even more than it was. After a moment of thought, he looked back up at the hooded hologram.

"What do you advise?"

Post by: JA-394 on Jan 04 2017, 11:41 AM
Vasul cut the line.

"Didn't like him anyway."

He looked around at his men, just standing there looking at him.

"Are we simpletons?! RAISE THE FLOODGATES!" he roared.

The men scrambled to their stations and began to raise the gates that blocked the water as high as they would go.

"That's not going to be enough..." Vasul looked out to sea at the water, still receding, "Declare a state of emergency!"

There was no one in his lab but him.

"Fine. I'll do it!"

Post by: Tyler294 on Jan 04 2017, 12:01 PM
Meanwhile, Foreman Brandt suddenly found himself alone in a speedboat right in the path of the tidal wave.

"That's not what Vasul said... oh shiiiiittt!!!"

He took over the driving of his boat, as whoever was driving it before swum to another boat and escaped long ago now. Of course, Brandt was just a life-long supervisor... he didn't know how to do anything himself. Soon enough, he found himself heading straight toward the tidal-wave.

Meanwhile, Baker Squad, as the team we were introduced to a few pages ago are known as, was back in the bakery eating donuts and generally feeling pleased about their performance during their last mission.

The water began to rapidly slam into the floodwalls as a giant, ugly, hideous, fleshy-monstrosity of a beast bared its head above the water out at sea.

***Up in Space...***

"Sir! State of Emergency has been declared, Quadrant Two!" some dude in a military uniform shouted over the blaring.

Some other dude in a more-advanced military uniform looked over his shoulder at him like, "Really?" and gave the order to slag the place.

PEWPEWPEWPEWPEWPEWPEWPEWPEW

The monstrosity fell to a barrage of turbolasers, as did several buildings, of course. And just like that, the water began to recede once more.

Instructional Video on Gate-Keeping - LIVE on Set!

"You see this here gate?" a tiny, dwarf of a man in a poorly made GK outfit asked his audience from in front of a rusted old gate.

"I keep it."

Stagehands rushed the old gate out and replaced it with a heavenly one that was somehow floating.

"Y'all see this here gate?"

...

"I keep it, too."

The stagehands rushed it away and replaced it with a crudely-drawn picture of the galaxy, with a hinge on it.

"See the gate from this galaxy to the next? Know what I do with it? Yeah you do!"

...

"I keep it."

The exhausted stagehands began to wheel it away as the audience, treated to a terrible instructional show with no music, no dancing, no nothing except some dude pretending to be their Emperor rambling about keeping gates! This was ridiculous!

***Upper Balcony***

"This is ridiculous," said Governor Gwag, commander of the planetary defense, "STOP THIS RIGHT NOW!" he hollered.

The show stopped.

"Who dares interrupt my liege!" fake-tiny-GK taunted the audience.

"First of all it's liege as in me, not my liege as in you. Second, you SUCK!" Gwag shouted from the balcony.

"Oh look, we have a broadcaster today!"

"..."

"That doesn't even make sense! Send in the KRAKEN!"

With a roar, a Kraken broke down a part of the wall.

Fake-tiny-GK looked... passive, behind the fake-tiny-mask.

"AH OH GOD I SURRENDER PLEASE DON'T HAVE IT EAT ALL 8 OF US-"

"Eight of us, hm? SEND IN SEVEN MORE KRAKEN!"

ROARROARROARROARROARROARROAR

"Now eat them."

"The Navy released a statement moments ago that the orbital bombardment of Quadrant Two has been declared an operational success and that outside of some property damage, no civilian casualties have been confirmed." the bored-looking news anchor of Komm News Daily reported.

"How fortunate." the anchor's blonde-haired female co-anchor remarked, in a somewhat disingenuous sort of way.

"Yes, very fortunate... NOW WE HAVE BREAKING NEWS!" the anchor suddenly changed subject, "Let's take it live to our reporter Katie Callous at the Helos Theater where we have something actually interesting in progress. Hi Katie."

"Hi Steve. Well, I'm here at the theater where a packed-by-Jacksonville-standards audience was enjoying an informative presentation on the nature of gatekeeping. However, as you can see behind me, the event was violently interrupte--"

Katie was suddenly violently interrupted as a Kraken tentacle appeared on screen, grabbed her, slammed her into the floor a few times, then pulled her out of sight as she screamed in terror.

"Thanks Katie. As always, wonderful reporting." Steve the Newscaster responded, beaming ear-to-ear, "We now return to our regularly scheduled programming."

Meanwhile, in Soviet Kommunist...

A couple of bruised, bloodied, dirtied but otherwise victorious Jedi stood before the main control console of the Kommunist Jatonium Mining Base. Behind them lie the unconscious but (mostly) not dead forms of the base's mining crew, security garrison and the Jedi's own strike force. The battle had gone on for hours and spilled into practically every corner of the facility... but at long-last, it seemed to finally be over.

Now came the more painful part...

"So... now what?" Diamanta asked, staring blankly at the screen.

Tons and a tons of LOOT!

No, I'm serious. Literally, tons upon tons of loot. They'd need a crane, a load-lifter, probably a few dozen men, and a transport craft or two to get it all out and back to their base.

*** End of Prelude ***


*** Chapter 1 ***

Like all decent RPs, we begin in a bar...

This particular bar being located in a somewhat less reputable area of Komm's capital city, where all form of scum, villainy and Twi'leks roamed. The bartender was a Chiss Chistori fellow known as "Crow", who was known to instigate brawls in his own bar from time to time. The bar itself, known as Crow's Bar, had just as low a reputation as the neighborhood around it. Of course, this also made it an excellent place for one to have a drink and not be all that noticeable among the cast of nasty folk that frequented or passed-through the establishment.

It was at this place, at this particular moment, that young human fellow wearing a black t-shirt, brown jacket and brown helmet with a lime-green visor stepped into the bar. His hair, which was grey despite his youth, was visible under his helmet and coming part-way down his forehead. A blaster was holstered on his belt, though this wasn't particularly odd in a place like this.

He gave the place a once-over, while slowly turning a small knob on the side of his helmet that adjusted the built-in scanners. On his end of the neon visor, a heads-up-display enabled him to check the patrons for warrants or criminal records, or in this case just for facial recognition on his current target.

Another man walked into the bar just after neon visor guy. He was much larger, both in height and overall size, dressed in torn street clothes with some kind of protective suit underneath. His skin was chipped and peeling, and he carried what looked like a flamethrower, along with dual blaster pistols, one with a scope and one not, and a hand axe.

He looked in the general direction the other guy was looking in, but did nothing for now.

Visor guy approached bar and leaned against it.

"What do you want?" Crow the bartender asked in a rumbling and raspy voice.

"Um... Corellian Ale in a clean glass?" Visor guy replied.

Crow's already beady eyes got even smaller as he glared at visor guy. He then suddenly lashed out, grabbed visor by the collar and lifted him off the floor.

"Are you implying that my glasses aren't clean?" Crow snarled.

"Ah... uh... no! No! Of course not! I'm fully confident your glasses are the very definition of cleanliness!" Visor guy gulped.

A little round hole appeared on Crow the Bartender's shirt.

Five more little round holes appeared on Crow the Bartender's shirt, as six charged blaster bolts perforated his heart in rapid succession.

Pyro-Slasher guy stepped forward, holstering the smoking blaster.

Post by: Tyler294 on Feb 04 2017, 01:21 PM
Crow blinked a moment, then looked down at the smouldering wound on his chest. There was a moment or two more of hesitation, before he looked back up at the Pyro-Slasher.

"Your efforts are in vain."

No sooner had he finished, then he abruptly recoiled backward as if he'd just been shot, releasing visor guy while crashing into the shelves of liquor behind him and wailing:

"EEEEEERRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!"

Crow then fell to the floor and out of sight. Visor guy leaned over the bar to look at the smoking, wet, glass-covered (and dead) reptilian on the floor, then sighed.

"Well... not getting any info from him..." he remarked.

In the meantime, all activity in the bar had halted and literally everybody had turned to face the two belligerent customers.

A couple people backed away, though most stood their ground. Visor-guy quickly ran back to his companion's side and put a hand on the flamethrower to gently push it down.

"Oy! Burnsie, we're here to interrogate, not incinerate." he cautioned.

Burns glared at the people. Then he looked longingly at his flamethrower and sighed in defeat.

"Five minutes," he said loud enough for his partner to hear but just quiet enough for the rest not to.

"Thanks." visor guy sighed in relief, giving his comrade a pat on the shoulder, before approaching the nearest patron.

That patron happened to be on his feet, happened to be a rather large alien that looked like a cross between a humanoid rhinoceros and humanoid hammerhead shark, and also happened to be not in the mood to talk to visor guy. Brushing past the smaller of the two intruders, rinoshark approached Burns and stared him down.

"You killed the bartender." he stated simply.

"Oy!" visor guy protested from behind.

Burns frowned.

"I've killed many a bar's tenders. I've also killed many more people who thought they could intimidate me by reaffirming that I had, indeed, killed many a bar's tenders. Most were smart enough to approach me with a weapon, however..."

His eyes glanced briefly at rinoshark's empty hands.

"Do I look like I need a weapon?" rinoshark asked rhetorically.

"Uh, guys? No need to get testy here!" visor guy tried to get between the two and break it up, "We're private investigators under contract with the Komm Criminal Control and we just have a few questions."

As he spoke, he flashed an ID badge in front of rinoshark, who did not look amused at having something waved in his face. Well, he wasn't amused until he saw the name on the badge.

"Your name is Mervin...?" he asked, raising a non-existent eyebrow.

"..."

Rinoshark burst-out laughing hysterically. Some of the other patrons were wondering why that was so funny, given the weird names most people at this bar had. But apparently it struck rinoshark's funny-bone for whatever reason.

Burns was not amused.

"Yes," he answered the earlier question, then went for the rinoshark's left eye with a hard blow from his axe.

Rinoshark was just able to see the axe coming toward him and managed to step back out of the way, albeit barely in-time. Instantly going from jovial to aggressive, rinoshark lunged forward in a headbutt-stab attempt at Burns's upper chest, using his snout horn as a makeshift weapon.

"Mervin" jumped back and went for his blaster, while the assembled crowd began to take a variety of different actions. Some fled the bar, others ran to the bar to steal drinks, others stayed to watch the fight, and a couple began hovering their hands over their own weapons...

Burns was easily able to dodge the attack, and spun around to the rinoshark's backside in the process and attempted to run him through more potently this time by tripping him up so he'd fall backwards onto the axe.

Unfortunately, rinoshark's big stumpy legs proved too study to trip, and the big alien only grunted slightly at attempts to kick out his legs. He then attempted to whirl around, using the momentum to try and strike Burns with a wide left hook.

Meanwhile, Mervin's visor had detected the two bar-goers about to draw their blasters. He head his out of the holster just before they did, but his first shot just missed the leftmost of the two. However, that gunslinger's reactive attempt to fire managed to just graze Mervin's left arm, while the second gunslinger missed entirely. Both sides then dove for cover immediately afterward.

Burns ducked, feeling the air from the strike atop his head.

He then decided enough was enough and let out a jet of flames from his flamethrower, first at rinoshark, then at the floor around him.

Rinoshark just roared in anger in reaction to the flames being shot at him, his tough hide able to mostly protect him from any significant damage. Unfortunately, the floor wasn't so resistant, the fire, combined with the weight of the big alien, quickly proved too much for the old wood.

"Rrrrrrrrrrrreh--?"

*Crack*

The floor collapsed under rinoshark and he fell out of sight into the cellar, followed shortly thereafter by a thud and groan.

Meanwhile, Mervin's blaster pistol-visor targeting link allowed him to easily kill the first gunslinger during their second exchange of shots. The second one fired, but missed, then was hit in the side by Mervin in response. He managed to duck behind cover again before he could be finished, however.

Somewhere near the door, the bouncer (a wookiee) had opened up a gun cabinet built into the wall and pulled out a heavy repeating blaster and was about to start a session of spray n' pray.

The pyroslasher's eyes lit up in what could be described as either joy or fury as he unleashed a second jet of flames, this time directed at the very-flammable wookiee.

The wookiee (who was part-way across the room) stepped back just out of the way of the flamethrower, suffering no more than a few singed hairs, before opening fire with his own weapon.

Mervin jumped out of cover and charged the overturned table that the last gunslinger was hiding behind. Said gunslinger heard the scuffle and decided to act first. Both individuals exchanged poorly aimed shots, before the dude with the visor had finally reached the door without a visor and engaged him in a clumsy melee exchange.

Burns combat rolled, catching a graze to the shoulder, then he threw his axe at the wookiee's neck.

And wouldn't ya know, the axe took the Wookiee's head clean off and the momentum sent it across the room where it was impaled by a mounted trophy animal's antlers. Fatality. Burns wins.

Meanwhile, Mervin landed a strong blow to the gunslinger's gut, then followed up with an uppercut to his chin, which was slightly less powerful but connected nonetheless. He then lined up a slow, wind-up style right cross, only to have the gunslinger snap out of his stupor and catch it mid-air. The gunslinger then twisted Mervin's wrist to a point where the latter cried-out in pain. At attempted kick at the gunslinger's lower body also proved fruitless.

By now, most of the patrons had fled the premises. What remained was a speederbike gang that was exchanging bets, an Ithorian high on some sore of drug, and a oddly finely-dressed fellow who had his communicator out and was attempting to call the authorities.

Burns turned his attention toward the gunslinger that was battling Mervin, retrieving one of the pistols from his belt and lining up a shot for whatever exposed area he could see, and firing.

Boom. Headshot.

The right side of his face sizzling, the last belligerent fell unceremoniously to the floor, leaving Mervin standing there looking like an idiot with his fists in a boxing position.

"I had it covered." he quickly defended himself.

"Yeah, uh... something like that." Mervin mumbled.

He did a scan too, for a different reason.

"Well, if our target or anyone connected to him was here, they're long gone now." he added with a sigh.

"Yeah, it's true..." Mervin agreed, also with a shrug as the two stepped outside the bar.

Meanwhile, the fire that had been created on the floor had slowly spread, gradually making it's way over to the bar and to all the bottles and kegs of alcohol behind it.

*BOOM*

Mervin didn't even glance back as the bar went up in flames behind him and Burns. Instead, the two just kept walking on amidst the falling debris like the one and a half badasses they were.

"...somebody's gotta clean up this town."

As Burns and Mervin exited the bar, flamethrowers, axes, blasters, and other assorted weaponry slung over their bodies, a little ways down the road, a motorcycle engine could be heard with a tune being sang:

"Amarilloimmakiller-"

The motorcycle ran the two of them down and just kept going, a streak of purplish light left in its wake.

"I been everywhere, man! I been everywhere man! Cross the deserts bare, Man..."

Burns lined up a shot at the fleeing motorcycle, quickly back to his feet.

Mervin pushed himself up off the ground, spitting some dirt back onto the pavement, before looking up at the fleeing motorcycle and trying to scan the license plate with his visor.

The license plate read-

"SeewhatImean, man??"

The motorcycle inexplicably appeared behind them and ran them down again.

"I BEEN EVERYWHERE, MAN. I BEEN EVERYWHERE, MAN..."

The motorcycle and its ghoulish driver vanished into thin air.

A few undetermined units of time later...

The two private investigators arrived at their office after a brisk stroll through town. It was the first floor of an otherwise abandoned thirteen-story office building, where a buzzing neon sign above the door displayed the name of their firm:


Tekwell & Burns
Certified Private Investigators


The metal door opened automatically for the two as they stepped into the lobby. Despite the rickety appearance of the exterior, the lobby passed for nice...ish. Near a door leading to the office suits was the receptionist desk, which was momentarily unoccupied. There was a mop and bucket of red-tinted water in the corner of the room, however.

Burns kicked it over.

"I knew moving to the city was a good idea," he said neutrally, once more preparing to sweep the joint.

"Why'd you do that! I just finished cleaning the floor!" a woman's voice wailed.

A blue-skinned Twi'lek emerged from a hallway, carrying a large garbage bag of something that looked wet, squishy and heavy. There was blood on her clothing and a gun holstered at her side as well. She had a namebadge pinned to her chest that merely said "The Secretary".

Burns looked disappointed.

"Don't worry about it," he said meekly, turning tail and making for the office.

"Sorry about that, Penni." Mervin shrugged, "You directed all the holocalls to the conference room, I take it?"

"Just the ones of relevance." Penni muttered.

"Great! Thanks!" Mervin grinned, before rushing off to the offices behind Burns.

Penni looked between the flood on the floor, the dripping back in her hands and her two employers that didn't pay her near enough for this job.

"Boys." she spat.

***

Soon enough, Mervin and Burns were in the conference room, where they took joint holocalls from their clients, both government and private. There were three messages saved for them, one from Komm Criminal Control, that directly employed him, and two from unknown private prospects.

"Whatcha wanna hear first, partner?" Mervin asked.

"Right then."

Mervin played the first holo message, from their overseer with the KCC.

"Good morning, gentlemen. I'm just checking in to see how your investigation into Sad Sal is progressing. My superiors would like some sort status update by the end of the week and an estimate on when the target can be located. Seeing as you are not here right now, I'll presume you are out chasing a lead, so I won't waste anymore bandwidth. Precinct 12 Overseer out."

"Typical." Mervin grumbled, "I'll have Penni type out a report in the morning."

He then decided to play the next message.

"I say, is this thing on? Oh, oh yes! Ahem. This is Mr. Hathem Topman from the Komm Rail Service. I need some capable men to help me recover a stolen caboose! Some bothersome blackguards have taken it and the railroad cannot possibly continue without it! Oh! You needn't worry about the rest of the train; it was crushed by a Squaile! Bloody things have no respect for Imperial property! Hrmph! Ahem, yes then... what say you to that? Hello...? "Hello......? HELLO!? I say, is this thing even on--"

The hologram of the railroad manager reached down to adjust his transmitter and the message was cut there Clearly he shut it off without realizing it.

Mervin shifted his jaw a little, then shrugged. Might as well listen to the last one and hope it was something more interesting. This time, the holodisplay showed a common model of protocol droid that was used in academic settings in the SE.

"Greetings. This unit is KZ-121 of the Imperial Archeological Nucleus. This unit understands you come well-recommended by the Private Investigators Union and Komm Criminal Control network. It is the purpose of this unit's communication to offer Assignment Designation: Alpha-Alpha-Two-Three to Mr. Mervin Tekwell and Mr. Will Burns of Tekwell & Burns Incorporated LLC. The contents of Assignment Designation: Alpha-Alpha-Two-Three are as follows: Track the location of Leviticus Expedition leader Alcone Rapollo from his last known coordinates in Precinct 6, to be provided on secure channel at later time, and obtain from him the exact location of the Lost Temple of Don. Objectives are the successful apprehension of Rapollo, the successful retrieval of the coordinates of the Temple of Don, and the successful recovery of valuable expedition equipment, logs and artifacts. Rewards will include a share of minor artifacts recovered from the temple along with a lump sum of 50,000 units of currency for each completed objective. This unit will provide additional information once contacted on an encoded frequency. End transmission."

Burns perked up at the mention of a Lost Temple.

"Who's Don?" he asked Mervin, "And why do I feel the need to find him?"

"Yes," was the reply.

...

"Why do so many people build monuments, temples and the likes out in the wilderness and then never do anything with them? It seems like every other week we hear something about a possession in a newly-found dark place somewhere dating back who knows how long."

"I know right? They really should build ruins in the middle of a city or something." Mervin agreed, then added in a mock Russian accent, "In Komm jungle, you do not possess structure; structure possess you!"

As he spoke he was busy copying the message to his personal communicator and preparing to send a response.

Meanwhile, at the ancient temple of Sinai, on the planet Moab...

Heath Ryder, Kane, and the four mercenaries had ascended an unnecessarily long flight of stone stairs to the summit of a half-pyramid carved into a cliff face. Ryder stood before the stone door, his hands resting on his hips.

"Ah, here we are! The entrance to the Forge of Moab! Within, we shall craft me new armor that will enable me to defeat the Gatekeeper once and for all!" he laughed.

The four mercenaries, had rigged up a system of pulleys, rollers, dollies and whatever else they had available in order to get the crates of raw metals to the top of the temple. Needless to say, they were all quite winded.

"Kane, ol' boy, we're this much closer to ultimate victory!" Heath grinned, slapping the Gatekeeper's brother on the shoulder, "Now, in we go!"

He heaved the stone door open and stepped through the entrance of the Forge (http://forgerp.com/forums/index.php/topic,109.msg35799.html#msg35799)...
