Rodrik bested Oram as efficiently as you did Benson, ending the fight with a decisive blow that severed most of the fingers on Oram's dominant hand making him unable to wield his blade. Cira who you immediately recognize as the Zabrak woman Master Jorrak warned you about dispatched her foe with ease, her incredibly perceptive means of fighting allowing her to see through her opponents fights with ease.The fight between Adan and Karn was a close one, however Adan's sheer power with the force allowed him to keep his opponent pinned to the ground until he surrendered due to the futility of the fight. Atelia, the other Twi'lek woman you were advised to caution countered and parried every blow she was faced with and brought Druan to a humble defeat.>Cont. w/ Cael'la's fight
>>42343089Cael'la blew Nivah and you both flirtatious kisses before sauntering to the arena, confidence exuding from her every pore. She and Kerrick faced each other and the moment the words 'begin' formed on the announcer's lips Kerrick charged Cael'la with a speed that surprised you. It was clear his intention was to make his first strike the last, everyone knew Cael'la's prowess rivaled your own and it was clear this was how Kerrick meant to win. His dogged pursuit left her little time to plan or counter attack and even from the distance you could see the creases in her face from concentration.Strike after strike hammered against Cael'la's blade and for a fraction of a moment you worried until you saw her eyes. They watched him without hesitation and in that moment her victory was inevitable. He made a mistake, just one, in his footing but it was all Cael'la needed. Quick as she could she lashed out at his calf and spurt of blood revealed the strike to have been true. The crowd roared and Karrick was left limping away as Cael'la gave you a coy wave.>Lastly cont. w/ Nivah's fight
>>42343089Just discovered this quest today. Good stuff!
>>42343243Oh, who will win? Oh wait, you already updated the bracket.
>>42343243You could see the nervousness in Nivah's face as her name was called, but with a shared look between the two of you her resolve hardened, the fire within her ignited, and her hands stopped shaking. She approached the arena calm as she could, meeting Paldamar with a serious look. Based on how he had approached the arena it was clear he thought this would be an easy win, however after meeting her gaze you saw a crack in his confidence and you couldn't help but smile.'Give him hell.'You think to yourself.Nivah stands firm and circles Paldamar, waiting for him as you told her so very long ago when you first met. After a moments calm Paldamar rushes her and with grace she side steps him, causing him to stumble. In that moment she strikes and their blades meet is a clash of humming electricity. Unfortunately his strength is beyond her and she is pushed back. Once more he rushes and one more she steps aside. Paldamar lashes our in preparation for a strike that never comes and throws himself off balance. Once again Nivah is prepared and using her advanced abilities with the Force to blast her opponents feet out from under him and he falls with a thud. Nivah rushes him as he is down and gently rests her blade against his neck. The match is called and once more the crowd explodes into applause. Nivah comes to you after the match, bouncing with joy at her win and you pat her head congratulating her. However the time has come for your next match.
>>42343442Once more you feel the gaze of hundreds, if not thousands of people upon you. Even before your name is announced you know, as do they, that yours is the next match. After your last performance you know they will have their expectations of you. Nivah scurries off after a few words of well wishing and you take a moment to center yourself."Next up is a match I know I've been waiting for! You know who they are now so we'll cut the crap and just bring down our next contenders. Xanth and Essia, make your way to the stage for ROOOOOOUUUUUUUN TWOOOOOOOO!"The crowd feeds off the announcers energy and in a way you do as well. You make your way to the arena once more.>What do you do?>Look out to the crowd as you move, get a read on their reactions to you.>Keep up your calm demeanor, no point acting differently now.>Force Jump to the arena, just to show off a little bit.>Meet Essia's gaze. Make her fear you.
>>42343279Thank you friend, glad to have you aboard!
>>42343577>>Look out to the crowd as you move, get a read on their reactions to you.

She tries to meet you but she flinches, fear flickering the edges of her expression as she tries to regain her composure. It seems that this presence had bled out into the crowd as well, the typical idle chatter seems to have dulled into a silent pressure as the areas gazes down upon you."Seems tensions have begun to rise folks. Well lets not keep you all waiting then. BEGIN!"Essia seems to be hesitating, trying to gauge you and what course of action she should take.>What do you do?>Rush her with Force Charge before she can formulate a plan of attack>Wait, size her up, let her fear build and watch as she makes the mistakes that win you the fight>Walk forward, slowly but with your guard up and see what she does>Force Jump into a downward slash, surprise her

>>42344346>2 Pass>SuccessShe hesitated. Her first mistake. Quickly you activate your Force Charge and barrel down upon her with blade drawn and ready to strike. Essia realizes her error too late and even as she twirls away your blade draws blood against her shoulder and she gasps in pain.You whirl around to make your next move but Essia is a step ahead of you, her hand pulled back in a motion to draw the force to her will.>What do you do?>Force jump over her and slash as she attempts to face you>Use your Force Spark, shock her out of her concentration>Dodge to the right, drop low and kick her feet out from under her>Rush her again before she can use the Force

>>42344864well then, I'm never rolling again.
Why the fuck did we vote for spark?It's one of our worst skills and has the lowest chance or succeeding.Our strengths are in our speed and swordplay, not our force-usage.Please, if you are new to this quest, or simply voted what 'seemed' good, take a moment and at least review our char-sheet, or if you have time delve into the archives (which makes for very good reading) before making an uninformed vote that may cost us.Thank you.

>>42344891You heard it here first, folks. We just got out first "lel lurk moar and stop voting for things I don't like newfags" of the quest. That's some sort of milestone.
>>42344891You said it for me.Yeah if we want to abuse force lightning, lets train it first, for now lets abuse our speed and strong swordplay.
>>42344930Yes that a success
I was thinking along the lines of interrupting her. But the good vote won in the end right?
>>42344866>2 Pass>SuccessWith a roar of energy you jump high in the air fast enough to avoid the thundering rush of kinetic energy that would have shoved you away. You land gracefully behind Essia and lash out once more, causing a gash to form across her back and she howls in pain before jumping back quite a distance to create so space between the two of you.Her eyes harden and she pulls her lips back into a grimace before once more collecting the Force. She clearly understands she is outclassed against you in melee and will instead attempt to overpower you with the Force.>What do you do?>Rush her head on and strike her before she can use her attack>Attempt to time a dodge and then pounce>Force Jump back toward her, but arc high in case she tries to blast you while you're in the air>Walk toward her slowly, try to fake her out
>>42345015>>Attempt to time a dodge and then pounce We must feel the flow of the force.
>>42345015>>Walk toward her slowly, try to fake her out
>>42345015>Attempt to time a dodge and then pounce

>>42345239>2 Pass>SuccessOnce more a thundering blast of force energy parts from Essia's fingers, however you are ready and dodge out of the way. Essia's eyes go wide as you charge toward her and you bring your blade to bare. She blocks for a moment but you easily overpower her and throw her to the ground with the force of your strike.

The defiance in her eyes flees in the face of your visage and she almost seems to plead with you. Her gaze does nothing to sway you however as your point your blade downward and plunge it into her foot. She cries out in pain and in the corner of your eye you can see your evil grin plastered upon it. You are filled with a strange pride."Aaaaaand that's all folks, Essia is no longer considered able to fight. The match goes to the grim grinning warrior... XAAAAAAAAAAANTH!"Once more medical personnel rush to tend the losers wounds and once more the cheers of the crowd wash over you like the tide.>What do you do?>Leave without a sound once more>Raise your blade to the crowd>Look out at the Sith and smile>Look to Rodrik and smile

The silent way you dispatch your foes without so much as a scratch then walk away as if it was nothing at all.The next fight will be between Cira and Rodrik, and this is potentially the first fight of the tournament in which two powerful contenders are well matched against one another. They read each other carefully, like novels, with great care and patience. Blades clash time and again, but in the end Rodrik's speed outdoes Cira's ability to ready him and she surrenders with a blade pressed against her neck.Adan and Cael'la's fight is surprisingly easier then her first, as Adan's reliance on the force is reminiscent with Nivah's fighting style that she has trained so many times against. The fight is short and sweet as Cael'la brings the boy to his knees.>Cont. w/ Nivah's fight
Oh crap! I didn't realize another session was underway! I didn't miss anything too good did i?
>>42346168You owe us 2 pictures of a Bloof. One big and tiny too make Brine suffer.

>>42346151Lastly Nivah is forced to fight Atelia, one of the few students Master Jorrak considered a threat to you. Considering all of this you find yourself worrying. Nivah's abilities have grown considerably, however you've had few means to compare her skill with others aside from yourself and Cael'la. The two enter the arena and regard one another carefully. Based on your understanding of their two fighting styles both are heavily defensive, with Nivah relying primarily on the Force while Atelia uses parries and swordplay to batter her opponents. Seeing the two styles meet will be interesting.The regard each other stoically before the voice of the announcer roars into life."BEGIN!"The two circle each other slowly and for nearly a minute not another motion is made. The arena is dead silent with anticipation as the tension between them builds. At last the silence is broken by Atelia."You know they say things. About you and that demon slave. They say he's got you playing into his hands like putty. What do you think will happen when it comes time for a Master to select him? Do you think he'll whisk you away with him? No sweerheart, he's going to leave you, cold, weak and alone. Who knows maybe some powerful Sith lady will sweep him up and make him hers. Poor little Nivah, left alone for bigger and better things."She coos with a smug snarl, goading Nivah into making the first move.Nivah tenses, her face flashes through a variety of intense emotions, for a moment you see despair. Had she feared this all along? Was thing why she clung to you? Was she cherishing what she could before you left her. She looks out to you in the crowd and your gazes meet. >What do you do?>Nothing>Shake your head>Raise your hand to her, as if to hold hers>Mouth 'I love you.'>Mouth 'Break her'

It is a tender gesture, filled with kindness are caring, and as you do this your lips part.'Break her.'You mouth silently, she smiles at you, a genuine smile filled with love and she nods. While Nivah is distracted Atelia takes the opportunity to rush her, thinking she would strike in time to end the fight. She is wrong. Nivah turns to her, she smile on her face warping into a hateful snarl and she raises her hand. Lighting arcs out of Nivah's finger tips and pours into Atelia, her body seizes and begins shaking violently as the negative energy overwhelms her. It takes several moments for her lips to part, and she screams in pure agony. The noise is primal, almost animal as her bodies muscles spasm uncontrollably. Several long moments pass before Nivah releases the hellish blast of electricity and Atelia falls limp to the ground having passed out from the shock.Nivah walks over to her and kneels beside her. She says something very softly, the microphone barely able to pick it up."The next ill words you speak of him are your last."Her voice is cold.At last she stands and walks away, her eyes meeting yours and the gentle smile returning to her face. She meets you shortly."How did I do?"She asks with a small smile.>What do you say?>Nivah that was horrifying. I loved it.>I have never been more in love with you until this very moment.>You shouldn't have said that, now everyone will know about us>You did well. Maybe don't use that again Cael'la or me if it comes to it.

Wait a minute >Maybe don't use that again Cael'la or me if it comes to it.>don't use that again Cael'la or me Did you mean "On Cael'la or me"?
>>42346630That was fast, and impressive. and for some reason makes me think Nivah chose to end it quickly instead of toying with the girl like she clearly is capable of. but that's just me.
>>42346630>pull her into a hug and give her a kiss.Brine. Prepare for your humiliation for what you have created.Now Bloofs all live in our feet.

>>42346697pretty sure he meant "against"
>>42346705Yes all my yes
>>42346705Good work Chibs.Damn good work.
>>42346705Taht'll do chibs, that'll do
>>42346630Votes are in
we really are making her a loyal, loving and powerful psychopath. Our masters should be proud.
>>42346788she'll be so yandere for us that anyone who seeks to take Nivah in as an apprentice will have no choice but to bring Xanth along just to keep her docile.
>>42346788>Our masters should be proud.They should also be afraid.
>>42346646>>42346649>>42346661>>42346669>>42346677>>42346679>>42346692>>42346693>>42346694>>42346695>>42346727"Nivah that was horrifying. I loved it. I have never been more in love with you until this very moment."You say, your lips forming into a smile.Nivah's face turns a harsh shade of red and she burries her face into your chest."Y-You said you love me... In public... Oh gosh..."She seems overwhelmed and you allow her to calm down buried in your chest for the moment. When at last she seems to regain herself a bit she speaks softly."I love you too."It's muffled but distinctive and you feel a rush of emotion flow through you: joy. Part of you wants to stay like this for the rest of the day but reality sets in as you realize your next match is set to begin soon, and it's against arguably your most dangerous opponent. Rodrik.You pat Nivah's head softly and she understands. She parts from you slowly then nods up at you, understanding that it is time for you to prepare yourself.
>>42346705You're a beautiful person Chibs.
So reading the earlier posts, I wonder what's Rodrik's specialization? He seems efficient and does well in terms of speed and bladework. but that's par for the course. I'm willing to bet his speciality lies in the versatility of using both the force and speed in his swordsmanship.
So unfortunately it is getting late, and I have plans tomorrow. The fight between Xanth and Rodrik is also not going to be a walk in the park. I'd like to schedule it in a way that maximizes the amount of people that get to participate because I know a lot of you want to see it go down. The next day I'll be good to run is next Sunday sadly, then we will have our chance to fight one of the big fights. I'll still be hanging around for quite a while as I close up the thread. Feel free to ask questions or just bullshit with me while the thread is still up.
>>42346891Don't be ridiculous.He specializes in being a nigger,
we should smile while approaching Rodrik and lick our teeth once while looking into his eyes
>>42346897>getting late>12:26Pfft, sleep is for the weak Brine.
>>42346897Although we glossed over much of the fight, did we see anything interesting when we watched Rodrik fight?
>>42346810This almost makes me think Nivah would be a force using berserker, just say "they want Xanth dead" and bam, one very dead army.
>>42346911Like we're going to have a delicious meal
>>42346919Negro I have shit to do before I go to bed and as I said. Plans.
>>42346891Pretty sure Roderick is a beast with the blade. We should start with both blades out since he knows we dual weild then chuck one at/past him, and then try to force pull it into him while attacking him with one blade.
>>42346903>>42346911We baried the hatch with rodric back when being invetgated for loric's death
>>42346944Yep it's double blade time.
>>42346941your opinion on bloofs? are they canon?
>>42346897Thanks for running
>>42346897Thanks for coming back with this. A week is a small wait compared to half a year.
>>42346949we can still enjoy the fight and his reaction
>>42346920He's very quick on his feet. Xanth on the whole is pretty well rounded in terms of both speed and strength. Rodrik however is built almost entirely for speed, and he uses it well. If you're not careful he'll just dance around you. He's primarily blade work like yourself, however he does have a stronger foundation in the force then you do since your training has been so focused on your physical abilities. He's not going to be a pushover, so don't cry if you guys make a bad decision and a high DC gets thrown at you.
>>42346897Thanks for running, also a bit late to express it but welcome back.
>>42346975>He's not going to be a pushover, so don't cry if you guys make a bad decision and a high DC gets thrown at you.There we go people - check the pastebin before voting so we actually go with actions we are good at.
>>42346990Love you too boss, keep on keeping on
>>42346949>>42346966True. You guys aren't necessarily friends, but there's no longer any open animosity. It's more like grudging respect.>>42346998I would also like to point out one this that had an affect on a DC today. Your enemies are not stupid. If they see you using a trick over and over, they will try to adapt their fighting style to counter it. That's why the DC for that force jump earlier in the thread was a 7. You need to hit a balance between using your strengths and not becoming a one trick pony.
>>42346975so Rodrik's built for speed, with his need to "gotta go fast", he's fairly solid in bladework and has a stronger foundation in the force. BUT DOES HE LIFT?
>>42347033>BUT DOES HE LIFT?I know we lift boulder just ask Loric
>>42347028>one thingFucking hell on earth
>>42347028so that means our Force Charge trump is out now that we've used it often enough for people to start adapting to it. Were still we wielding single blade when we fought Essia? And I think I've figured out a strategy for dealing with Rodrik.
>>42347094Elaborate Chibs, if you would be so kind.
>>42347094You've fought with only one blade up until now.And that doesn't necessarily mean you can't use it all together, but if you use it in the same way over and over people will catch on.
i like the thought of Nivah being her cute self when she's with us and those we count as friends/allies that she goes psycho whenever she fights someone, it's just so cute when someone is homicidal one minute and all lovely the next
>>42347094Start with dual blades to overwhelm him and pin his blade, then force roar in his face to stun him and then smash him down with a headbutt.
>>42347166Whats the opion the crowed has on Xanth besides strong
>>42347094Rodrik:>Single blade, can only block one blade>Good foundation in the force (probably uses it for force push and what not) for crowd control if things go south>built for extreme speed, gotta go fast>Can't (physically) lift for shit>Speed does not equal high endurance = tires easily if pressured long enough.Xanth:>Dual blade, onslaught of swings>good foundation in the force (slightly weaker than Rodrik), uses the force for internal boost (force charge and Force jump)>high Speed and strength with pretty good endurance (from slave background)>Dual blade stance has inherent openings>Skilled Force specialists can enforce zone control on XanthStrat continued in next post:
>>42347213Mixed.Some are absolutely terrified of him.For the most part he's heavily supported by a lot of the lower class audience because he was a former slave.Most of the upper class find him unsettling, just because the thought of a former slave becoming so powerful doesn't sit well with them, especially considering many of them own slaves who were just like you.A lot of the Sith are impressed, but most of them want to see how you face a real challenge.
>>42347244Our absolutely amazing joyful grin doesn't help with the image does it?
>>42347216Actrally when we did our force test we crit on it an have one of the strongest connection to the force in our class we just use it to enhance our self
>>42347244Good.And if we absolutely destroy Rodrick, how will they feel then?
>>42347291Are you saying you'd like to be greeted to this face being made by someone you've wronged for years?>>42347310You'll have to wait and see wontcha?
>>42347329>Implying that isn't my fetish
>>42347296Yes, this.We have a Wild and strong connection to the force, we have just put less focus in it than most of the apprentices here.Once we start putting points into offensive powers we will become much more of a threat.
>>42347216Plan: >Gain the initiative>keep him on defensive>watch for any force tricks he might pull>maintain pressure until he cavesIf Rodrik somehow lands a parry:>Try to apply bladelock and force roar his face> Force jump to backjump and charge at him again to reapply pressure.If Rodrik is on the offensive:>Parry into a bladelock and force roar his face.>Put distance between Rodrik and Xanth.>Regain initiative and apply pressureIf Rodrik uses any force moves:>If force push: target his free hand >if force pull: block with one hand and still target his free hand >if to through Xanth off balance: Roll with the recoil and put distance between Xanth and Rodrik via Force Jump
>>42347329Brine you better go change the Nivah's bio now.Especially the last line.
>>42347433Oh, good point. I have some other tweaks to make on the bio sheet and the character sheet as well. They'll be fixed by next thread.
so now that the secret's about Xanth and Nivah's initiate relationship is out, how does the crowd view Xanth and Nivah now?
>>42347560Kind of like a scandalous thing. Love in the Sith Academy is rare and easily prayed upon, but since both of them are strong it's kind of intriguing and terrifying. Two powerful psychos madly in love with one another, arguably making them more psycho. It's got a lot of peoples attention to be certain.
>>42347585Hnnnng, stop talking dirty Brine
>>42347585elaborate: how did the commoners react? How did the Darths and Sith Lords react?How did our peers react? The thought is so scandalous that I wanna know.
So is Cael'la involved in the love circle, or is her infatuation with Nivah the driving force behind her sexual involvement with Xanth?I've never really gotten the feeling she's had feelings for him other than respect, anyway.
>>42347702She drawn to strength an Xanth is nothing if not strong
>>42347702She seemed to be into Xanth before she was into Nivah.I love them both equally
>>42347702I'm guessing it's more of the latter of the two. Yes a 3-some smut did happen but we have yet to see Nivah reciprocate any affections Cae'la has given her after the 3-some has happened.
>>42347673Commoners think it's sweet, they're used to Sith being kind of nuts, so the idea of you two being so sweet to each other while butchering your enemies is kind of nice. It humanizes the Sith to them.Upper class basically went from unsettled by you to outright nervous. A former slave and the daughter of a farmer (or thats the cover story) team up fall in love and turn into a murderous power couple? Yea that worries them.The Sith are the most mixed, a lot of them are impressed with how the two of you draw on one another for the emotions you channel when using the force. Usually it's stuff like hatred or pain, but you two draw off of joy, love and the ecstasy you bring each other. Some think it's a weakness to draw on something dependent on another person though.
>>42347702You don't know entirely, from what Nivah told you she always found you interesting because you were strong and Nivah's passionate lashing out got her hot and bothered. According to her she's interested in both of you.>>42347766Nivah doesn't necessarily mind it, but she mostly goes along with it because it pleases Xanth, and at this point she would do almost anything to accomplish that.
>>42347847tl;dr They think we're nuts. I'm okay with this
>>42347847>Some think it's a weakness to draw on something dependent on another person though.This displeases me. They do not know the power and potential of Love! Have they not heard that CUTENESS IS JUSTICE?
>>42347875>from what Cael'la told youFuck I'm losing it
>>42347881wait....wrong saying. it's more along the lines of LOVE IS JUSTICE!
>>42347875Is terel with us an watching the fights
>>42347875I love the way we're emotionally abusing poor Nivah.
>>42347918>reciprocating love >is emotionally abusing Do you even love anon?
>>42347916He's watching in the lobby you were originally with. You never really inquired about fighting with him or having him out there, so he's being kept in the lobby to prevent him from interfering if you get in danger.>>42347918I mean some might argue that it's not really emotional abuse. Let's be real Xanth is a little nuts as it is and according to every decision that's been made he really is in love with Nivah. So he's going to be a little nuts in the way he expresses it and pushes her to be strong enough to annihilate anyone who fucks with her, or him. Is it healthy? No? Is it abusive in any way? Not really. If he didn't care about her then yes, it would be abusive.
>>42347881They should go read the sith code. It's first two lines are both about passion.>>42347901Brine since you've come back Taral hasn't said much sarcastic stuff. Is he ok?Captcha a cake isn't a pie you dumbo
>>42347918 It isn't abuse if it feels like love anon. True, untainted murderously passionate psychopath love.
>>42347937>>42347954>>42347963We're pretty much halfway through the DENNIS system with her. Not that I say we'll go the whole way with it.
>>42347351If he uses Force Pull, we should Force Jump, it'll get him off balance when we rush at 2x the speed at him than he's expecting.
>>42347961I've been trying to pick up the pace with the events of the Academy. We haven't really been in true real time until now with the tournaments and he's been in the lobby for that time. Once he's around in the day to day segments again you'll see more of him.>>42347973I'll be real, per my role as a QM and the nature of the society of the Sith, I'll allow most anything within reason. If you guys did this though, I'd be pretty high key nettled. I doubt it would happen that way though.
>>42347973That's why we're going so make sure that anyone who takes us in as an apprentice also has to take Nivah in as well. And now that the secret love relationship's out, the ones who are prospecting for our apprenticeship are gonna seriously think before even attempting to separate Xanth and Nivah. Either it's take them both in or don't take them in at all.
Welp that last step is likely to be forced, which will even further strengthen the bonds since we won't be initiating the separation. Btw Nivah is my favorite yandere anywhere ever, i love how she is written and i like her personality. And i like how we are corrupting her while simultaneously falling in love with her.
>>42348009So far we've done:>Demonstrate value>Engage physically>Nurture dependenceYou could argue that we've also done "Neglect emotionally" during the preptime to the tournament as well as "Inspire hope" just now.
>>42348035>>42348043Oh mother of god you're right.Also thank you on the comment about how she is written, I wanted to make it apparent how it was warping her over time.
>>42348031Oh chibs, im certain some ambitious bastard would LOVE to get his hands on the Xanth/Nivah pair. Think about it, with their love to fuel each others passion, they would both become powerful weapons with great synergy, guided by his own hands to use as he wishes for his or her own personal ambitions.Seriously it's gonna happen.
>>42348066I'm scared if these two ever have a kid, christ almighty that kid'll be fucked up.
>>42348035>>42348043Now I'm laughing my arse off imagening Rodrik employing the MAC system and failing miserably.
>>42348082>Playing the Eugenics game alreadyI understand you anon and will happily have a hand in min maxing our child to be an unstoppable force of nature, but for now lets focus on getting there with both parents alive and strong.
>>42348092That would basically be the equivalent of Rodrik signing a forum saying that he is ready and willing to have his testicles removed. Violently.
>>42348118This pleases me
>>42348082I personaly hope that if Brine ever runs a jedi quest we get to play as a decendet of Xanth who get force ghots vists from him an Xanth just wants his decedent to be strong not evil or dark just strong
>>42348118The testicle thing would be in the fine print though, because no one goes in willingly knowing their imminent fate as a eunuch.
>>42348079This guy? I'm willing to bet it if his priority is about teaching and spreading the Passion of the Force (and how channel love in the force) he'd be very happy to take the psychotic lovebirds in.
>>42348149Oh any other Star Wars quests I may or may not run will at the very least take place in the same 'universe' as it were. Some people showed interest in a Bounty Hunter quest, which if I did would exist in the same time frame. Theoretically actions in one quest could have effects on the other in such a situation.
>>42348171>>42348146Wrong link, my bad
>>42347992but he'll expect us to do exactly that. He's seen us pull the Force jump trick. he won't expect the force equivalent of the Lion's Roar nor aim for the hand he just used for a force pull if he attempts to bait us into pulling a force jump and pre-enact Anakin's mistake in Mustafar.
>>42348169>Goddammit.>Why>Dual wielding Anderson sith>How the fuck am i supposed to feel about that shit>I....I...i..i..i..i.i.i.i.i.......>FFUUUUUUUUNNNNNNNNNNDDDDDD IT!
>>42348231You now what he wont expect a counter force blast.
>>42348079>his or herI fucking hate it when people type like that. If you want to be gender neutral use "they" or "their".Also, fuck all the faggots who want to be refered to as xir, xer or in any other pants-on-head retarded way.
>>42348303that tactic is also viable.
>>42348320Oh so sorry anon. :^) Feel better will you mister? (Or miss)
>>42348367Yeah, actually. I do.
>>42348303We practiced roar though and since we've been so calm and collected it will also impress and shock the audience and any sith masters
>>42349257Actually we've never actually learnt how to do it properly and have never practiced it, we used it in the fight against the other acolytes in the desert and against Loric, both to varying degrees of success. I'm pretty sure we tried twice against the acolytes cause it didn't work the first time.
>>42349276If by success you mean we just shouted at them with no use of the force then yes
>>42349299Yea, pretty much.Probably still scary but I'd rather not try and use a wholly untrained skill against someone like Rodrik.
>>42349352Better keep up appearances as the quiet guy that is freakishly strong
best thread as of yet i think, i love the psycho couple thing we've got going and i think we should stick with it since it power our emotions
>>42349612and if someone kills her later on when our bond is really strong(as if it isn't strong right now but you get what i mean) the rage will will be of forced unleashed levels
>>42349627And then it ends like the battle between Obi-Wan and Anakin
>>42349627>the rage will will be of forced unleashed levelsYou expect Xanth to pull a Star Destroyer class vessel into the ground from low orbit?
>>42349641You mean the episode 4 version right?
>>42350115That's means we lose then.
>>42350216That's what happens when you fight while blinded by rage.
>>42349627Out of doubt, out of dark to the day's risingI came singing in the sun, sword unsheathing.To hope's end I rode and to heart's breaking:Now for wrath, now for ruin and a red nightfall!
>>42350244>blinded by rageXanth isn't a rookie Sith like Annakin was.
>>42351380>Implying Xanth would last a minute against Anakin as he was towards the end of the Clone WarsI can't stand Anakin as a character, but you cannot deny how skilled he was with a lightsaber
>>42351494He was but he was still shit at handling the dark side, which is why he lost. Xanth has much more experience with it so he'd not be blinded by it.
>>42351923He's never lost anyone close to him before. Hell, he's never been close to anyone before the way he currently is with Nivah.If anything could make him snap and go on a full on indiscriminate hatefueled murder rampage, it would be losing her.
