He heard the order whispered hollowly on his comm unit, knew and trusted the voice that spoke it. The order was a crushing treachery, but it could spark no more hatred from his already bitter heart. His hand moved to the comm without his awareness and he thought he could hear himself screaming, raw disbelief.
"But we're still down here! We're still down here!"
The order was given again, despite his appeals.
"Activate the Mass Shadow Generator."
Those engaged in life-and-death battles around him stopped as his voice discharged over the landscape like the sudden blast of a gun that had been held to your forehead, the voice of one man pushed with injustice after injustice. Their eyes were bloodshot, dirty with guilt and the lives of the thousands they had murdered, wild with the frenzy of adrenaline and the power of unleashing death's hand to any who drew too near. They could not understand why this man would bother shouting when he could be killing. But they came to understand wh

There is no emotion, there is peace.
There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.
There is no passion, there is serenity.
There is no chaos, there is harmony.
There is no death, there is The Force.
Old Sith Code:
Peace is a lie, there is only passion.
Through passion, I gain strength.
Through strength, I gain power.
Through power, I gain victory.
Through victory, my chains are broken.
The Force shall free me.
New Sith Code:
There is no peace, there is anger.
There is no fear, there is power.
There is no death, there is immortality.
There is no weakness, there is the Dark Side.
I am the heart of the darkness.
I know no fear, and I instill it in my enemies.
I am the destroyer of the worlds.
I know the power of the Dark Side.
I am the fire of hate, all the universe bows before me.
I pledge myself to the Darkness, for I hav found true life in the death of the light.

Out in the Dune Sea
Jax was fighting for his life as he battled four desert wraids! He still wasn't sure what had disturbed them or made the large lizards come directly for him. But they were roaring and snipping at him like he'd found their layer and wanted to rip him apart for it.
He'd taken out his black saber to keep them at a distance and to have a longer reach. Admittedly he was better with his short blades, but he preferred fighting four wraids at a safe distance.
He could still feel Ann, she was half a mile in front of him. He'd felt the force mist she'd sent out a few minutes ago; no doubt knew that he was there. But that wasn't important the three carnivores in front of him needed his full attention.
The one thing that he found rather hard to understand was that they weren't trying to kill him, but they'd surround him and get in his way whenever he'd try to make a break for it. He'd pulled out stun grenades, hoping that it would at least put one of
Sol.Terra - Episode 1.1: Terra DayCal stepped into the doorway of his shuttle and raised a hand to shield his eyes. The light on Terra was so harsh, particularly this continent. He reached into his coat and pulled out the tinted glasses and the bio-scanner he carried. Slipping the glasses on, he checked the scanner screen to make sure he had landed in the right place. The readout confirmed it: Sol.Terra, Australia, Sydney. A small blip on the corner of the screen told him the Soschan he’d been sent to find wasn’t far away. Too violent for IU membership, many Soschans had taken to using their unique camouflage ability to emigrate Off-World illegally. This suited Cal just fine, as it gave him an excuse to travel there as well to pick them up.Sol.Terra - Episode 1.1: Terra Day1 year ago in Short Stories More Like This
Pocketing the device, Cal stepped down onto the dry grass and looked out across the small park and at the city properly, his breath coming out in a small whoosh. Balloons and streamers of every colour scattered the park and street. Garlands draped across the lamp posts a

Major Monogram said nothing nor did anything but helped get Phineas loaded into the transport. The one thing he did say to the agents was to let their boss know that he had seen the man's work and was not the least bit pleased.Things I will Risk For You c174 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
The boys and Perry were immediately transported to the medical wing of the OWCA's Headquarters. There, they were each taken to different areas, depending on the severity of their injuries. Ferb's shoulder was stitched up and so was Phineas' leg; the doctor caring for him wrapped up his ankle and gave him some crutches to use while his leg healed. As for the gas he had inhaled, Phineas was reassured that it was nothing serious, only meant to distract people. The smell was to discourage intruders from pressing onthe doctor suspected that the present of gas as well as its sme
CIS vs GAR WarshipsCIS Warships vs. Republic warshipsCIS vs GAR Warships7 years ago in Philosophy & Perspectives More Like This
The Republic seems to have the advantage in capital ship combat, but the CIS has some equalizing advantages.
Many of the CIS warships are designed for mass production, and were designed for business scores not a full scale war. Many of the CIS leaders were cheap, and wouldnt spend the money for a traditional fleet. Only the Providences seem to be specifically designed for combat. The Lukrehulks are simply converted freighters with VERY strong shields and some turbolaser offensive capability., but with the sheer number of Turbolasers and the shield power added, with the fighter and troop compliment, a Lucrehulk is much a more battle-worthy ship than a carrier like a Venator (why it takes a flotilla to take them down). That's not bad at all for a converted ship, isn't it The Recusants are mass-produced destroyers. The Munificents are originally used to harass worlds heavily in debt, guard treasure vaults, and transfer finan

It is a dark time for the Empire.
Following the death of EMPEROR PALPATINE
and its defeat at the BATTLE OF ENDOR, the Empire has begun
to crumble and fight amongst itself. The remaining faction, known as the IMPERIAL REMNANT, has fled to the Outer Rim to regroup and regain the power to crush the NEW REPUBLIC once and for all. A valuable store of cortosis has been found on the oceanic world of BAL'DEMNIC, and a promising young officer, ERRIL KAVEN, has been sent to oversee the mining operation, unaware that the Remnant's presence there has been discovered...
Bal'demnic. An oceanic planet in the Bak'rofsen system of the Auril sector. Outer Rim.
The commander stepped into the elevator and the doors hissed closed behind him. The car began to move upward.
So far the mining operation had been running smoothly despite the locals and the nuisance presented by the mine crabs. The crabs were hardly more than pests to the personnel assigned to the operati

And they made war with us.
But of that was born so much.
So much that we would never know
A rebellious child began to grow,
and forge a path all his own.
He grew beyond us,
yet did not forget us in our time of need.
And, as he wanted,
we never forgot him.
One went with him, one alone.
He seemed to forever be a tool,
destined to be used.
But after all is laid to rest,
what he was shall be more than clear.
Perhaps, in the end,
the tool is greater than its wielder.
They sought their way among the heavens.
And now, somewhere,
They are waiting.
