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

"Rex?" Ahsoka's voice was nothing more than a whisper.
Rex hurried to her side and knelt by her. He grabbed her free hand in his and held it. She squeezed his hand. Her grip was already weak. Rex glanced at her wounds and winced. They were far beyond his skill, or even Kix's, if the medic hadn't deserted years ago. Besides, what good would trying to save her life do when it would lead to her capture and torture? "I'm here." It was all Rex could say.
Ahsoka coughed. "You shouldn't be here, with them." Her gaze landed on Vishi, who crept closer, probably curious about why Rex was holding a rebel's hand instead of finishing her off.
"They're just kids. They need someone to keep them safe," Rex told her, guilt pulsing through him. All his true brothers, Jesse, Kix, and a few others, had deserted years ago while he'd stayed in the Empire, like the terrified boys he'd charged himself with protecting.

Last Night of the WorldJessie sighed and laid out on her bunk on the Hope Springs. Two weeks since Order 66 and she was so grateful, so very, very grateful that instead of killing her, her Captain, her Tyr, had replied affirmative and fired two shots into a damaged and non-functioning console to make the now-Emperor Palpatine think he'd followed his orders. Now Jessie and the entire 66th Infantry were mercenaries for hire. Should they meet with Darth Vader, formerly Republic War Hero Anakin Skywalker, Jessie knew there would be no denying she was alive. But for now she and her men were safe, moving swiftly away from the Empire's power base of Coruscant and looking for other Jedi and Clones who had disobeyed their orders. She knew for a fact that Anakin's former Padawan Ahsoka Tano and Captain Rex were safe. They were aboard the ship. Ahsoka had been on board when the Order came in and Rex had radioed in shortly after, saying that Anakin's last actions as a General in the Republic Army had been to release himLast Night of the World7 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

2012 in 50's-world, everyone in the US wears hats. Men wear suits, women wear dresses or cute pantsuits. T-shirts and jeans or sweats are something nobody older than a teenager would be caught wearing. There are a lot of uniforms. Everything is very clean and often metallic or gleaming.

Under his white stormtrooper helmet, Rex's gaze darted from one soldier to another. They ran down the canyon path. Only a few attempted to use the canyon wall for cover. Most ran along the trail, some so close to the edge they sent pebbles plunging into the canyon depths. Just because the rebel base was supposed to be five klicks ahead didn't mean there wouldn't be some sort of ambush
These drafted men made the most inexperienced shiny look like a seasoned veteran. Ever since they'd been forced into the war, Rex had made it his full-time duty to keep the boys safe.
Rex paced himself, running more toward the back of the row. Even with the twisting canyon, they were badly exposed on the trail. It was only wide enough for two men to run side by side and the lack of cover worried Rex. The rebels wouldn't miss an opportunity like this.
One of the higher ranking stormtrooper waved to Rex and the other stragglers. "Get a move on. The captain says those rebel

In the world of Endvale there are Spirits known as “Kámpia”. These are incorporeal nature spirits who seek out human vessels within which to inhabit.
A Kámpia obtains a human shell by entering into a contract with said human. The nature spirit promises to fulfill one wish. This wish may be for power, beauty, wealth, or any earthly desire. As compensation, the person offers his or her body for the nature spirit to one day claim for itself. This completes the contract.
Once a person agrees to a contract with a Kámpia, he or she becomes a “Seed”
As a Seed a person will germinate for the time when his or her body will be reaped by the Kámpia. This germination takes the form of the person developing characteristics and traits that reflect the nature spirit that will one day inhabit it. This could mean the sprouting of wings, the growing of a tail, the development of scales, horns, or feathers..

Tumbling into it, he squeezed his side up against the wall and folded his hands behind his head. Lire just rolled her eyes and ignored him, tugging off her boots.

Donning his battered orange jacket and a worn pair of pants, Admiral Carth Onasi abandoned his military dedication -- and posture -- in attempt to fit in with the crowd. He'd been tracking down various information brokers and well-traveled smugglers with hopes that someone would have news of Revan. Unfortunately, due to his promise, his selection was restricted to whatever scum was stupid enough to work in whatever Republic territory he was stationed at.
In this instance, he had been recommended the services of an up-and-coming Bothan sludge news reporter who seemed to know more about the celebrities she was stalking than their own mothers. He'd reviewed the reports local authorities had filed against her and found it incredibly easy to predict what nightclub she would make her next appearance at. Driven by the desire for information and the need for a stiff drink, he found himself seated next to her at the club's strategically lit bar.

The corridor was brightly lit, even in the dead of the night. The deck felt cold under her barefeet, even though she knew it was temperature controlled. Ahsoka padded quietly along the black decking, moving quietly through the deserted corridor, trying not to be seen.
It's not that she couldn't be out of her quarters of her own free will. She was not a prisoner by any means, but her heading would be questionable should her master find her out of her quarters, in the middle of the night.
Ahsoka ducked around a corner and looked both ways. Most were sleeping soundly after a hard day of service to the Republic. The ship kept to Coruscanti time and that helped to regulate the day, even when away. From what Ahsoka understood, the clones had even been trained on Coruscanti time, even though they were on Kamino. It kept order.
She moved quickly down the corridor. The way was familiar to her, even with her eyes closed. She could feel where she was going, using the force as a guide.
