Chapter 3: A means to an end.
To accept one's self is going to die makes one able to find calm. To want to live, means that one has strength. Finding strength and finding calm is a task most men will never complete. However the man that finds it can have the world at his fingertips.
Tokuamalee blanched when Regret waved his hand signaling the guards to come up and grab him, and grab the Captain.
"< Bring the Human to me. >" Regret said his floating chair hovering closer.
Anna watched as the guards grabbed Tokuamalee, and came to grab her. She didn't know what to do, she couldn't tell if the Prophet was angry, happy, sad. His sing song voice masked what he was saying. She didn't understand. When the Elite guard grabbed her by her sore wrist it took all her strength not to call out in pain. His grip was tight and she could feel her bones grinding painfully together. Twisting around she could see that the Captain had looked up and Tokuamalee was panicked. Scowling sh

What HappenedAtton opened his eyes slowly, he was slammed against the dash. He pushed himself up carefully and looked out the windshield. The Ebon Hawk was wedged in between two rock masses, frequent lightening scattered around, the wild winds howling about the ships metal skin. He had lost control. The winds were much more then he had thought, and there was a thick fog that hid much of the jagged rock that stood tall into the air. He had, had a very bad feeling before they arrived to Malchor, and it had proven right. He wiped the blood from his nose and felt his forehead, feeling a painful gash there. Looking about the control panel, it was obvious they had lost power. He reached around and turned the switches to their off positions, flipping a few back on just to see if anything would come on. Nothing did. He pushed himself from the chair, grabbing the back of the seat for leverage. The ship was tipped forward slightly; it was a climb uphill to make his way to the hallway.

Sometimes life is not everything that it seams. Some people will live out their lives completely untouched and ignored by the forces at work. However, some people are destined for great things .Often times the greatness of people is overlooked, they are singled out, leaving them alone and ridiculed. Yet these are the people that are truly strong. It is these people who will stand up. It is these people who will fight for everyone's freedom.
They are tough. They are proud. And they have no fear.
Dust swam around the closed windows of the elementary school making the place full of children seem barren. The planet Lecithin was a long forgotten colony of earth, surviving somehow off of the meager crops it's poor soil produced. The people were poor, the land was poor, and the whole planet was over crowded. Children were left abandoned while their parents died. The war with the covenant was the graceful end all were looking for on this planet, no more suffering,
Star Wars Training GuideStage 1: youngling Essentially, the Master starts with a blank slate before him. The youngling knows little to nothing of the Force and its uses beyond instinct. It is tempting to skip this stage, but it carries a few essential stages that need to be explored if the person playing the youngling wants a good character development. Alternatively, the 'youngling' can start as somewhat older and more developed, having trained himself a bit before meeting a Master (this is more usual with Sith).Star Wars Training Guide5 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
Step 1: meeting the youngling and bonding Here is a chance for the Master and the student to communicate. Make sure that the other player gets some of your char's background and personality at this stage. This is also an essential part for character development. How the Master and the student experience each other can have great effects on how they grow, together or otherwise. Here, Jedi will typically be amicable while Sith stress their tradition of eternal strife and adversity from e
Final MissionIt is hot. My undersuit is maxed out with perspiration, and I watch a trickle of sweat roll down my cracked chestplate as I check my weapons one more time. I watch the tank drive away into a tiny dot and finally disappear. My left leg aches, still smoking from the cauterizing I gave it before I sent the team packing to the rendezvous. I injected a numbing shot into it as they left and I lay the last vial next to me and continue my gear check. My 'steel-shredder is at half charge, the '15' has less than that. I take the scope off of my M5 and attach it to the DC-15 rifle. I adjust the beam setting to maximum and set it back on the rock next to me. My two fully charged 's' blasters are holstered and the DC15s is zip-strapped to my dark green shoulder harness. My hand touches the two grenades and I check my gauntlets for charge.

Chap 2: Down the Narrow path
A child is a child regardless of race, sex, or spices. Troublesome they may be they are often times full of wisdom and should not be ignored.
Anna had woken up in the middle of the night when she heard what only could have been called shivering from the elite Tokuamalee who had rescued her the day previous. When she quietly walked over to the bed she found out that was exactly what the Elite was doing. Had her mind been any older she would have blanched at the seemingly human action, but because she was still young she instead hauled the blankets she had curled up in back over to the bed and had tossed them as best as she could over the large elite. It was also then in her sleepy haze that she climbed up into the corner of the bed and curled back up and drifted back into her sleep.
Tokuamalee was not aware that he had fallen asleep before Anna had gotten out of the shower. In fact most of the events of the day before were hazy when he first got up. So his i

A few more words were said by Truth to the counsel, and every last word was in his own tongue. Anna watched patiently and swayed to the strange music that rumbled from Truth's throat. She was nearly asleep standing when Truth's singsong voice changed back and dismissed the counsel in Elite. Her toes were hurting and she had long ago gone back to resting on her heals. Anna could hear voices behind her as the guards stepped up to surround her, Tokuamalee, and the now newly pronounced fleet commander. Unlike yesterday people were filtering out at their leisure and none of the guards was forcing them from their seats. Anna kept her eyes focused on the bottom part of Truth's floating chair.

Signals breached the silence of the deep space, distress signals to be true. The signals contained the exact coordiantes of the ship in hope that somebody would find it before everything is lost. After a few hours somebody returned the signal to the ship, letting the captain give out a sigh in relief that he was saved. Yet his happyness didn't take long as the monitor showed the ship on the radar, it was a "pirate" ship that possibly came to rob him out or to kill him and take his ship. The lizard like alien who was the only passenger of the ship he owned hoped that somebody else will also get the signals of the ship before it is too late.

His gaze was settled firmly upon the two fleeing individuals.
Angrily he narrowed his eyes as he saw his one time friend Chris Raine, holding unto Vasha. There was no way he was going to let the sith kidnap the young twi'lek.
With his lightsaber in hand he turned his attention to those eight who stood in his way.
The guards held their blasters readied at him. All of them preparing to take aim and cut down the jedi knight before them.
On a whim Jr shouted at the guards around him. "I am Verdin Darkwalker; get the hell out of my way!"
Several of the guards eyes widen in fear and they turned tail and ran. They had heard of the legendary jedi master and weren't about to mess with him.

What is freedom?
Some say that it's the will to do anything without restraints....
Others say that it's an excuse to escape responsibility....
While I say that it is to be free....
But from what?
Who pays the price of freedom?
Some say that being free from bondage bears no price....
Others say that no one will shelter you afterwards....
While I say that it is eventually granted....
But by who?
Where does freedom come from?
Some say that it comes from the will to be free....
Others say that it is born from chaos....
While I say that finding it can lead you freely....
But to where?
Why do I even desire freedom?
Some say that it's natural to dream about it....
Others say that yearning it is foolish....
While I say that it's too complicated to understand....
Even if these questions were to be answered
Would they be the solution to gain freedom?

Alone in the darkness, I sit, I pray...
For someone to hear me just once.
This has gone on for many a day..
It seems years...now another month.
I have these images kept from dreams,
Ones I never have during the night.
They are of a feeling it would seem...
But it's never there, away from sight..
Being alone is all I seem to have,
For me to know and even believe.
I know nothing of that special laugh,
Or the pleasure that it could leave.
There are no hands for me to hold,
No eyes which I can lose myself in...
There's only the lifeless, empty cold,
Like the chest of the man made of Tin.
There's nothing of my heart to remain,
Seems that my feelings helped do this.
Because it is true, they're simply a pain,
Hurting what as they want and wish.
I wonder about the silence of my curse,
That left my soul in a lifeless wake...
The Fates just seem to make it worse,
Giving me chains that will not break.

Boredom is your mind's way of saying that you aren't doing all that you can do with your life.
Love lasts forever, but only if you know how to express it.
Manipulation is a skill to get everything you can out of life.
Freedom is not acheived by removing the shackles of your hands, but removing the shackles of your mind.
The distance one perceives is judged by the value it is to get there.
The mind's eye can only help you so much with love; the rest is blind.
Fight for what you believe in only if the reqard is greater than the pain endured.
Knowledge is not what you perceive from your surroundings, but what you perceive from within.
Time has lasted 4.6 billion years. Nothing can stop it so its best if you do all you can with your life with the time you have now.
Love is the same as chaos: it destroys, it creates, and you have no clue how to stop it.

Her companion nodded his agreement, "I feel that he may be here still."
The twi'lek tilted her head slightly, "Are you certain?"
Nate nodded grimly, his hand moving to his lightsaber. "Send a message to the council. Let them know we have tracked down Master Darkwalker to a space station in the Hutt Space Territory."
Naali nodded as she moved back towards the hanger bay. Nate watched her go, his heart filling with dread. He hadn't wanted her to come with him. She couldn't possibly survive a lightsaber duel against Master Darkwalker. He wasn't even sure if he'd be able to.
Naali made her way quickly through the hanger bay, keeping herself focused on the force around her – especially what she sensed of the darkside. She knew it was strong and it was nearby.

Blush carefully applied to a sunken cheek
Eyes lined with black coal
No need to bother with false pretences
A night alone is never intended
So move to hypnotise
Liquid smooth hips and thighs
Low cut fur coat and faux pearls
Revealing silky soft skin
Moist with a sensual sheen, suggesting the night's agenda
Temperature is high
Eyes spread like fire over waif like limbs
And its time to leave
Names don't matter in this business
Just count the steps to the bedroom.
No need for sheets
To keep us warm, or entwined in a loving embrace
Hot hot heat, twisted limbs
Resist the urge to scream
As I take control
Just a little,
You're almost there now
You can feel your body pulsing
And you couldn't pull away

Count the minutes until you
