2020.09.01 07:04 directormmn SURVEY RESULTS!

SURVEY RESULTS!
Hi all! Here are the results of our recent community survey! Thank you so much to everyone who participated, we had over 350 responses! Onward!

Demographics

What a diverse community we have! I've always been so proud to be part of a group with so many different kinds of people, especially across the gender and sex spectrum! Our bisexual and WLW-identifying population shows out strong, with heterosexuals coming in third for biggest group.

Seems like a lot only a couple people were not aware of the writers strike, and while many of you were supportive of the writers' efforts, there were only a few of you moneybags who were able to contribute to the GoFundMe campaign. For more info about the writers strike, click here!

Quite a few more people than expected have bought hearts with their own hard-earned money. Sometimes those premium scenes are too good to pass up! Lovestruck is known as a game for being notoriously difficult to get hearts. Voltage, take note - let us have more ways to earn hearts!

Thank you SO much for everyone who's joined the community recently! We're always happy to have new members (though I have to give an even bigger shoutout to those of you who have been here since the beginning)!
Apparently we haven't been doing our jobs very well, because quite a few of you have no idea how to add flairs! Thankfully we have a handy-dandy guide that will show you exactly how to add flairs to your username!

Many of you have not read the older stories or Tales of the Wild. It is the first story with only one route, after all! Quite a few of you said "nah" to Lucas, though those who said "sure" expressed a strong interest in reading more of his route! Poor TL&P MC, absolutely zero people voted for you. (Sorry not sorry.) QoT, HifL and RP MCs reigned supreme! A lot of you would rather spend hearts on romance scenes than anything else, though a fair number of you said that you spend hearts on just about anything - whatever catches your interest!
Most people are looking forward to reading Fiona! Several of you used that question as more of a route wishlist, where the overwhelming write-in answer was Ruelle.

The most underrated series were Speakeasy Tonight, Sweet Enchantments and Villainous Nights. Here are some of our favorite responses for most underrated series:
To Love & Protect: "I really liked Madison's route!! But i never really see people talking about It?"
Speakeasy Tonight: "The characters only got 1 or 2 seasons, no one ever talks about it, but the MC is so great and the historical setting is the coolest"
Speakeasy Tonight: "It has a unique historical setting, great banter and fascinating era-appropriate dialogue, a strong, courageous, and savvy heroine, and a variety of love interests who have great personalities and lots of depth. The adventures are exciting and feel fresh."
Villainous Nights: "While Juliette is great, the older routes don't get enough love; Andi in particular is a gay Millennial icon, Lorelei is a butch goddess, and the MC is gorgeous and powerful. In addition, the stories go to difficult places (Renzei's, especially) and tackle challenging subjects with some surprising thoughtfulness. Plus, Robin is best bestie."
Villainous Nights: "I started playing lovestruck, and VN, after all the routes "finished" and they just teased that Juliette would be coming. I think in this time, since all the other VN routes before Juliette were pretty rushed that a lot of people just don't enjoy the series as they did when it first came out. Though I wasn't around, I followed the posts and there seemed to be a lot of hype about it. It's pretty unfortunate that lovestruck abandoned all the other routes, I think because its producer quit? For whatever reason, it is still unfortunate and as much as I love Juliette, it's hard not to be bitter about how the other routes ended (and, of course, bitter about Zeke), so I get why people may not enjoy it as much anymore. Though the series was done dirty, and I wish it had been resolved differently, for the most part I really enjoyed it and it's one of my favorite series."
Sweet Enchantments: "Many readers don't buy hearts and missed out on context (specifically in Runa's route) that wasn't written elsewhere. The art was also gorgeous."
Castaway: "Despite good art and decent, creative stories, it is older and so often gets overshadowed by newer routes. Plus, of the oldest routes, Astoria and L&L tend to be the ones people really talk about. Coupled with people who refuse to read anything where the MC doesn't have a sprite makes this often overlooked."
Astoria: "It has beautiful imagery, amazing writing and wonderful plot lines."

The most overrated series were Queen of Thieves, Gangsters in Love, and Love & Legends. Many responses came down to descriptions like "boring," "cringey" or "just couldn't get into it." Here are some of our favorite responses for most overrated series:
Gangsters in Love: "It’s a bunch of rich kids playing at being gangsters, but they never really do gangster things. They have a hitman that doesn’t even kill people, ffs. It’s lame."
Gangsters in Love: "Stockholm syndrome isn't cute."
Love & Legends: "The writing is improvable, the plot is dragged out and the art is pretty bad. The MC isn't great either, especially in some of the routes, and the worldbuilding was boring."
Sin With Me: "It's just very strange. It throws you into (with barely any explanation) a world where MC meets demons basically. And I still don't understand what the assassins do. It's a jumble."
Queen of Thieves: "It's... I don't know. Vivienne shows a lot of abusive behavior, and Zoe is kind of boring."
Tales of the Wild: "I've never been interested in Revi, and I really tried to give her a chance. But there's just no real communication nor chemistry between her and MC, in my opinion. Also, even though the art is nice, it bothers me how the beastfolks have these fur bikini/pants! That's illogical and looks super goofy, they would've been better off with loinclothes and normal body hair, honestly. I know this story isn't big within the community, I just consider it overrated because of Voltage : they hyped it like THE series everyone wanted and couldn't wait for, but honestly... It's not too great. I know the setting is nice but I'm kinda disappointed there's no call back to Love&Legend since it's supposed to happen in the same universe, and even though the overall plot is interesting, Revi just doesn't do it for me."

Routes

Surprising absolutely no one, the ladies win every time! There are many super popular male characters, but a female characters win in every category (with the exception of Arin from EAA and Jace from QoT as desired LIs).
In this survey, we asked about routes you'd like to see in each book from existing characters. You did not disappoint! You helped put a spotlight on lesser known characters and because of that, we now have side characters pages on the Lovestruck wiki! There are more characters listed on those pages than were in the survey, so check them out! There are links below to each wiki page, and you are able to contribute more info to those pages, please do so!

Medusa and Cyprin win in a landslide! Bad Boy Astraeus leads the men in Astoria. Out of all the side characters, beauties Persephone and Aphrodite magicked their way into our hearts.

Serena secures a huge lead over the other LIs in Castaway. She was one of those rare characters (along with Madison) who got resurrected for an extra season. Joaquin leads the men, though there are significantly fewer votes for any male character. People were more interested in a Leilani route than any of the others.

Readers loved their new favorite witchy woman, Nora! Ezra had a decent showing with over a hundred votes. Arin was one of the only non-female characters to beat out any of the other choices! Readers can't get enough of that quiet intelligence they exude. Readers also love Bad Girl Darla. Do you want to sit on her, ahem, student council?

While Vanessa and Mackenzie win easily for Havenfall, all of the LIs turned out decent results. While not loved by everyone, HifL is one of the most popular books overall. Lots of variety in the side characters as well, with Annabelle, Roshni and Lilliane as the most popular picks. Werewolf, djinn, vampire? How can you pick?!

Helena is, to no one's surprise, the winner for Love & Legends! Many readers have expressed love for her route and how it deals with difficult subjects. Altea got well over 100 votes, with Saerys and Iseul nearly tied for third. Gorgeous fantasy ladies Iraia, Ishara and Solaire each got over 100 votes, with Caligo leading for the men. And despite being aro/ace, 42 of you said you'd like to give it a try with Imohn!

Readers really want to risk their lives with questionable makeup products, because Vivienne is one of the only characters to crack 200 votes! Zoe just barely beats out Nikolai for second place, who each got over 100. Jace was the only other non-female character to beat out the other choices! Ariana and Clemance came in second and third, respectively, while Giovanni is the most popular male character.

Xenia comes out as the supreme ruler of the Lovestruck universe! She beat out Helena by a grand total of 2 votes! Guess those extra arms are more popular than we thought! 👀 Ruelle route when??? She was also the most popular side character by far, and had more write-in answers than we could count! Readers are also clamoring for a Piama route (and more than a few of you wish to date both of them!), with Galen and Hazel both getting well over 100 votes each. And while they didn't make it on the survey, quite a few of you wrote in Diarmuid and Armin as desired LIs.

Liora and Emeril were nearly a dead tie, but our favorite cafe manager won with a 2-vote lead! Runa took nearly 50% of the vote as well, and Zain leads for the men with over 100 votes to himself! Zola intrigued us the most, though many of you want to give it the ol' college try with evil mastermind Axia.

Newcomer Jessa barely beats out Zhora for the top spot. And despite a heated debate, Nova still beats out any of the male characters, though newbie Nav makes a strong showing! Wyst was the most popular side character with just over 100 votes, though fresh face Keda and evil genius Xendalia got quite a few votes as well. Popular write-in answers were Admiral Mirra and Rhea Everleigh.

Sofia blew everyone else out of the water with over 100 votes! Neil takes the silver with the most votes for male characters. Fun fact: all of the votes for male characters totaled 156! Sofia did quite well for being the only female LI in that book. Cleo and Freddie were the most popular side characters.

Baddie Yvette barely beats out good girl Onyx for the top spot, and in a surprise twist, Cal was the only male character to win over a female LI with 100 votes exactly. Nahara and Vinca are the victorious amongst the side characters. Shoutout to the brave five of you who voted for Brody. Personally I don't get the appeal, but maybe fanny packs and surfer styles are making a comeback? Also, Ripley? I just can't with some of y'all.

Tales of the Wild is a mixed bag, it seems! Most people think it's just "meh," though there seems to be enough hype for possible new routes! Birds are in because everyone is waiting with bated breath for swan beauty Evina! The other possible new LIs had a decent showing, but we're a little concerned that someone wants to date the "baby troll." Are you okay?? And despite its deep unpopularity, enough of you voted for Madison to make her a contender! The males didn't do so well, but at least Chadwick can boast the top male spot, for whatever that's worth.
If you're wondering why we didn't include any side characters in the results, it's because no one wrote one in. Most people seemed amused that we didn't even include the question, though our personal favorite write-in response for a new possible TL&P route was: "A new character. MC joins an anarcho-communist activist group and actively fights against the state. She dates the woman who teaches her how to make molotov cocktails."

Memelord Juliette takes the top spot for VN, though Andi has a strong showing with over 50% of votes. Renzei barely beats out Lorelei, who each took over 100 votes. And while Dahlia was the overall winner for side characters, many people used the write-in option for this question to vote for Zeke a second (or third, or fourth) time. Voltage, take note! Clearly his short was not enough for most readers.

Cecelia beats out Nathan by over 3 times his number of votes! She barely missed being in the 200 club, but it's close enough for us! Readers just can't get enough of their new vampire wife! And Ada takes the cake for the side characters, with Kellan coming in second with Keanu lookalike Roland hot on his heels. There were some great write-in responses for this question as well, with Ysabella as a frequent choice and even someone wishing to romance "Sheriff Oatmeal Face"!

2020.08.15 07:47 DeadlyDarkside Lovestruck Questionnaire

Credit goes to Tumblr user walkerorteganazarioramsey for creating this amazing Lovestruck Questionnaire, and XX for mentioning it on the Lovestruck Amino. I came across this wonderful Lovestruck Questionnaire on Tumblr and on the Lovestruck Amino, and because I love questionnaire's and have abit of free time on my hands, I'll try to answer as many as I can. Here's my answers to the Lovestruck Questionnaire. If you're interested, please feel free to participate and share your own answers as well.


I believe I answered this before, but no surprise, I'd have to say my favorite series is Sin With Me. I love the setting, and characters, the action is fast-paced, and the storyline, lore and world is so fascinating to me, and I am very interested in learning more about the 7 Big Sin Demons that the Sin assassins are named after, and can't wait to find out more about them and what they are up to, and what happens with the story and characters.


Not gonna lie, I'm not fond much of the male characters in most of the stories. But I do like Malakai, and Cal from SWM, and Omar from Ever After Academy. I wouldn't date them or play their route, but I think they are fun characters.


Do non-LI's count,cause if so that'd be cool. If we can include all female characters, my top 5 would probably be (in no particular order): Nitiqret, Yvette, Axia, Vinca, Aurora.


I typically don't play the NB routes, because I'm just more attracted to long-haired feminine women. That being said, I do really like Arin from Ever After Academy, and would be interested in checking out their route (if they should get one). I also enjoyed Robin as a roommate in Villainous, and while I wouldn't play their route, I thought Galen seemed like a pretty fun and interesting character.


That's a hard choice, but I'd probably have to go with my girl Yvette.


Lady Vo, Tansy, Magnus and Lennox.


Darius, and JD (those two are the only ones that I really dislike, their personalities just rub me the wrong way). I don't really hate anyone else, but I just don't see the appeal of Lyris and Piama, I mean they seem nice and all, and are good friends, but other than that, their character and personalities just seem uninteresting and boring to me.


Axia, Dr. Xendalia, Nitiqret, Vinca, Inez (she made an awesome villain), and the Witch Queen


To Love and Protect. The story and characters just seems very unoriginal and boring to me.


Around March last year (2019), when Queen of Thieves started and I started playing Vivienne.


Well, the first story I started reading was Vivienne's route in Queen of Thieves, but if you're talking about a series I started that was already completed, then it would be Gangsters in Love (Aurora) and Love and Legends (Helena).


Jessa (Starship Promise) and Onyx's most recent seasons (SWM).




Since I don't play the male routes, no, and I doubt I'll ever play through any of the male routes.


Yes, Xenia and Zhora. Mostly because their stories dragged on abit too much (and I didn't care too much for the MC's redesigned new look in Zhora's route), but also because while they seemed interesting and morally ambiguous and dangerous LI's at first, I thought they became too soft way too quickly and easily and lost most of their appeal for me.


Ooh, this one is tricky. I don't know if I can choose just one. I love the SWM MC, as well as the QoT MC, the WLL MC and the new alien PI MC in Jessa's route.


To Love and Protect MC. Just seems really bland and uninteresting to me. Even Gangsters In Love's MC had more personality and spunk to her.


If we're going based on looks alone, I'd say the Love and Legends MC is probably the best looking and most attractive, even though she is not that interesting of an MC. As for my own preference, I like the look of the original Starship Promise MC the most, mostly because she looks more like me with her hair in the ponytail all the time, and that's how I usually wear my hair).


I'd say a mix between the Starship Promise MC (nerdy and shy), and the SWM MC's personality (with abit of the QoT's personality as well).


Gangsters in Love - Aurora

Queen of Thieves - Vivienne

Love and Legends - Helena

Sin With Me - Yvette

Starship Promise - Jessa

Reigning Passions - Amara (because of the story)

Havenfall - Vanessa

Wicked Lawless Love - Cecelia

Castaway - Serena

Sweet Enchantments - Runa right now (but Nysa could easily become my favorite when her route gets released)

Tales of The Wild - Revi right now (but Evina would definitely become my favorite if she gets a route)

Ever After Academy - Nora


Season Two of Yvette. It had good pacing, lots of surprising twists and plot development, interesting villain, lots of action and suspense.


Wow, okay this question is really hard for me. Gah, there are so many good ones, I just don't think I could choose just one. I do prefer the more steamiekinkier or spicier CG's with the LI dominating or topping the MC. Hmmmm, I guess if I had to choose one I think it would probably be the last CG we had for Yvette (Season 3 Episode 12), cause that one was really hot and one of the best and steamiest CG's (plus, I love how I was able to animate it in After Effects).


Probably Xenia, though I wouldn't say I really hate or really dislike her or anything. I love her design, and I loved her when she was first revealed, she seemed dangerous, very ruthless and cunning, mysterious, deadly, seductive and morally ambiguous, and I was curious how her route would be like, especially when she was listed as being lawfully evil. However, now she's become much softer, more slow-burn, and boring, and her route and character just isn't as interesting and dark as I thought it would be. So I would say I'm more disappointed in her character than anything.


Chance, Nikolai, and Cal. For characters I've romanced, I'd say Amara and Wrath, though I wouldn't say I disliked them, I was just indifferent to them and their romance at first, since I was only playing their route for the story, but eventually grew to really enjoy their route and story more than I thought I would.


You mean like shipping two other characters with the MC, like a threesome or polyamorous-type relationship? None. I'm a monogamous person, so it would be weird and uncomfortable to ship my MC in a polyamorous relationship with two other characters. If you mean a favorite ship with one of the NPC's and the MC together, then I'd have to say my favorite ship would be either Nitiqret and Havenfall MC (with no Dracula), Necahaul and Havenfall MC, Axia and the Sweet Enchantment MC, or Dr. Xendalia and Starship Promise Alien MC.


Nora and Darla from Ever After Academy, Aurora and Vivienne, Yvette and Vinca (or Yvette and Onyx), Jessa and Zhora, Piama and Ruelle.


Hands down Nitiqret (followed closely by Axia, Inez, and Nadia). I really loved Nitiqret's character, and thought it was really fascinating that she knew and dated (or fell in love with) the MC's ancestor. I would've loved to have had a route for her and the MC, with the MC feeling strangely attracted and drawn to her, and perhaps getting flashbacks or dreams of her ancestor and Nitiqret, how they met, and their relationship. Would've been cool if she left Dracula and the MC and her got together and decided to go down their own darker path.


Yvette, Vivienne, Jessa, Cecelia, and Onyx.


Aurora, because her last season ended on a cliffhanger and I was really excited to see what happened next and how the cliffhanger got resolved, and finally get a good happy ending. Aside from her, I hope Vivienne, Yvette and Onyx have alot more seasons as I enjoy them the most.


Don't buy tickets, but I usually buy hearts in bulk in order to last me a month or two. So typically, I'll buy 1500 hearts every two months.


I'll read them, but not usually write them. I did try to write a Nitiqret/Havenfall MC fanfic, as I had alot of cool ideas on a good story/route for them, and while it didn't turn out too bad, I didn't get very far on it (though I would kill to read a good Nitiqret/Havenfall MC or even Axia/MC fanfiction though).


Not really fanart per se, as I don't draw the characters or anything. But I do make desktop wallpapers (since Voltage hasn't released any official desktop wallpapers), and sometimes do my own edits/music video animations where I like to animate the characters and CG's to make the characters move or come to life.


Sin With Me, Reigning Passions, Gangsters in Love, and Queen of Thieves. I would love to be the MC in SWM, Reigning Passions, GIL, and QoT.


Yvette, Vivienne, Onyx, Aurora, and Helena.


Maybe give us darker routes and LI's, let us date more villains, more morally ambiguous women, or evil women that don't get redeemed, and let them take us down a darker or evil path. Either that, or maybe add in more choices where you can decide if your MC is good or bad or morally ambiguous, or allowing us to choose to do bad things or good things.


Right now I only play Lovestruck, Originals Interactive Stories, Romance Club, and Choices. Other games I've tried in the past and actually enjoyed were Love Island, Storyscapes, and What's Your Story.

Other similar games I've tried but really didn't enjoy (due to their being little to no WLW content) Journeys, Fictif, Episode, Chapters, Stories Your Choices, Stories: Love and Choices, Maybe: Interactive Stories, Amour, Taboo, My Story, Decisions, My Love, Fictions, Love Choice, and Love Story Games (I've tried alot of them). Aside from Lovestruck, Originals, Romance Club and Choices, the only other similar romance-type games I play are mostly yuri visual novels since most are seriously lacking WLW or LGBT content.

2020.07.28 03:00 Nerdlurld The Holy Anuad (Unabridged)

 THE HOLY ANUAD -Unabridged- Mnemonic Canon 
An Epic Poem, or Collection of Poems, of Unknown Origin(s) That Dates Back to the Earliest Days of the Merethic Era written by the first assumed diviner(s) of Elder Scrolls. One of the earliest, if not the earliest canonizations of the elder prophecies.
VERSE I
  1. Before it all. Before the dream was dreamt. There was but Amaranth. Animus Prime. The all and none. The ever present outsider. Familiar mystery. Foreign Forefather. He and She, Both and Neither. God and Mortal. Man and Mer. Wolf and Sheep. Ancient youth. Newborn Elder. However, To be all there can be no other. This had saddened Amaranth. The last thing Amaranth had learned before becoming omniscient, and the last thing they had to become to be omnipresent, and the last thing they had to achieve to be omnipotent was loneliness.
  2. Amaranth meditated on this for a day. They sat amid their domain of infinity and meditated so deeply that they began to dream without even realizing. Amaranth fell back regressing into their own subconscious void. There they experienced true emptiness. Abysmal absentia. Infinite and eternal naught. Dream became nightmare. Amaranth sought to protect is from not and so became it. This that contained all that is and will be became distinct from that which is not and will never be. Is named himself Anu and then identified his mirror twin as Padomay.
  3. Dichotomy. Anu the ever-light was as a perfect crystalline lattice. Order eternal. Aether-Animus. Arena Animus. Nether-Animus. Padomay the never-dark was as the still cold of moonless night. The idea of other scared Anu. The idea of changing what is pleased Padomay. Brotherhood turned blood feud. The Lattice shattered and rebuilt time and again until a piece of starlight fell from Anu and flew to Padomay, darkened, obscured. The star circled back again and grew brighter than Anu. Then nestled below light, but above darkness, and declared herself Nir. And for the first time a soul shown with askelde uncertainty.
  4. Anu was stricken by her, and she with him. Nir showed Anu things that could be. Miraculous and Mundane. Lattice flows like Water. Then she showed him things that should be. Water elevated to Heavens unspoken. They fell in love, and Padomay grew angry. Padomay tried to change his brothers stubborn ways for so long. And yet Nir does so upon introduction. Passions of Anu-Nir beset the world with the Et’Ada and chief among them where the Duodecaplets and their Realms Eternal and Perfect. Kingdoms of light, dark, sea, snow, sand, reef, stars, song, time, mist, steel, and fire. Ur-Adnym.
  5. Padomay sought creation and change and so made a family of his own. Being but naught, the twins Jone and Jode were born still. And so death was wrought in the world and Padomay’s rage and sorrow and jealousy was too much to bear any longer and so the nothing lashed out at the everything despite the twins being adopted by spirits of love and mercy. Spreading this affliction called Death. Becoming the mantle for Death as he devastates the twelve kingdoms sword in hand. Nymic War. The First War left trauma on Anu that would last for time immemorial. The chaos and confusion left behind had killed Nir and the Twelve Kings, her and Anu’s firstborns. Yes many Et’Ada had passed on from is to not, and Anu did yet mourn.
  6. Padomay’s cloud did cast a great shadow that day and Anu remembered he and Padomay’s father when they were alone. Triopticum. Just as Old Amaranth did Anu did yet meditate on his loss and dreamed a dream terrible and beautiful to behold and did yet shine brighter than he had before becoming the wellspring of all new life. Banishing Padomay back to the sleeping Void. Anu was then reborn as Anui-El the Angel of Life, and so did recognize the dreadful new visage of Padomay and named him Sithis the Angel of Death.
  7. From the bones of his wife and his children Anui-El built a grand and beautiful alter to both honor their memory and shelter their souls and the souls of any and every Ada, and named this new kingdom built of hallowed blood, Nirn the Grey Maybe at the center of the world. Wheel’s axis. Scale’s fulcrum. These two Angels then fought one another over the souls of the Ur-Ada. From Anui-El’s light congealed aetherealms eternal as the the great Aurbus disk. Then did Sithis poor the fallen blood he claimed across the Aurbic Wheel, and the voided Animi did congeal as well at the heart of this creation called Nirn and awoke her soul. Aetherial eternity then sundered from Oblivious infinity. Heavenly Uroboros and Hellish Heart.
  8. Both Anui-El and Sithis seen this interplay and grew curious. Where Anui-El was joyous and inspired, Sithis grew fearful and violent. The Et’Ada thrives among the timeless oceans of Aetherius and Oblivion. Being and doing as they pleased infinitely and eternally. Anui-El then became as one of these souls to rule and preserve them, and he was known to them as Auri-El and they called him Dragon King. Sithis then did the same to raze and revolutionize them, and he was known to them as Lorkhan and they called him Doom Drum. Auri-El and Lorkhan found followings and then formed Aurbic kingdoms. A kingdom of sedentary Law and order and a kingdom of nomadic freedom and chaos.
  9. These ideas clashed in manifold fashion, but mostly their boundless existence no longer sated them. Before endless war broke out Lorkhan conceived of a plan to reconcile and overcome disparity. Lorkhan brought the soul of Anui-El called Auri-El and the wisdom of Nirn called Magnus as a neutral party. He brought the wives of his brother named Mara and Dibella. He brought his brother’s wizard Arkay, his knight Trinimac, and the Magus’ pupils Julianos and Mnemoli. He called his own wife Kynareth. He called his own banner-lords, the brothers Stendarr and Zenithar. He called on many more Lords, Ladies, Peasants, and Beasts of the Oblivion Wilds and Aetherius Kingdoms such as Vigryl, Yffre, Ius, the children of Magnus, Druagga, Mei, Qolwen, Sai, Syrabane, Mystara, the Deep Ones, Arius and countless others, and they came in droves for this promised land.
  10. Lorkhan told them he would forfeit his own lands in Oblivion to make a new realm for anyone willing to help build it. He promised Auri-El rulership of this dominion and authorship of time for Lorkhan’s space. And so Auri-El did conceive of linear time to bring order to the events of their realm. He tasked Magnus with drawing the map of Nirn the twelve-fold as a compromise to their values. Magnus then made the twelve conform to the temporal line as a mythic cycle, while physically they are as dodecahedron of spacious land and temporal water and magic sky. And so Lorkhan begot the realm of Mundus, Magnus begot the plane of Nirn, and Auri-El begot the realms of Time.
VERSE II
  1. Unbeknownst to all other Ada to experience something besides eternity and infinity one must be relegated to limitations and impermanence. Sacrificing their divinity, thus life as they know it. Sithis’ House. When their numbers began to die off, bursting into raw creatia, and metamorphosing into the land, sky, and sea, the flora, fauna, and monsters, and the all the people of the Nirn, the Divines realized what they had done. It was too late. Magnus used what strength he had left to tear through the void membrane and allow the Aetherius to shine as the mighty sphere we call Sun.
  2. Magnus’ Anuic kin follow suite and we are begotten to the majesty of the stars and their constellations, forever known as Magna-Ge, the Star-Orphans. Our Nirnic forebears who sacrifice their lives and their powers became known to us as the Aedra, Our Ancestors. Those Padomaic Ada who coveted their power, but held curiosity for creation, remained in Oblivion, and are so tied to it for eternity. These are the Daedra, the Old Gods. The last divine act of the Eight who remained (Auri-El called Akatosh, Mara, Dibella, Kynareth Arkay, Julianos, Zenithar, and Stendarr) held trial for the treachery and deceit of Lorkhan atop a Tower of their own making called Ada-Mantia. Written to be remembered, like all things, by Yffre. Sentenced to death and executed by Trinimac. Shor then meditated on what he had done, for for a moment knew Anu. His heart cast across the world by Auri-El’s Bow and Arrow and his body cast to the sky as a lunar umbra alongside his kin Jone and Jode and his soul cast upon the earth as a vengeful Wraith ever binding itself to impermanent flesh at least a thousand times a Kalpa. Ysmiri.
  3. The Eight chose to stay because they truly believed in Mundus and it shows in how they governed it. Before they became mortal and died the godly Aedra started families so they may live on in some way. Julianos taught their children the divine scripts so they may hold memory as well as the secrets to Magicka. Zenithar taught them multitudes of crafts so they may be resourceful in times of need and plenty. Dibella taught them the beauty and subtle communication of the arts and the many joys of love. Stendarr taught them kindness and compassion for they were manifold and maniform. Arkay taught them to respect the dead for they are never truly gone and to honor life because they are your kin. Mara taught us to have and hold family in whatever form we find happiness in. Kynareth taught them to cherish the natural world for it was made for us by the blood of our ancestors, it is our birthright and our charge. And Akatosh taught us to honor and protect your people, be they tribe, kingdom or empire, and hold your traditions close for they are as much a part of you as you are of them.
  4. The first amongst them to die was Yffre the Singer, who declared herself to becoming the Bones of the Earth. Her knight Hircine was so ashamed of his inability to protect her he tore his way into Oblivion where he may have a good vantage to hunt the monsters of Mundus who dishonor her memory. So the first race of mortals became known as the Earth Bones, or Ehlnofey. Dead Yffre then grew into the land as a great and beautiful Tree. The First Tree. All around her their fallen kin fell and sprouted back up again, or scurried away, or crumbled into the elements, or rose right back up again deformed and speaking tongues alien to the ear. The Ehlnofey were then rallied by Akatosh, now Demi-God, under the banner of a kingdom in the Kalpic calm of which they called Old Ehlnofey in honor of fallen Yffre. The Ghost of Lorkhan then rallied the altered forms betrayed by Akatosh and established the Wandering Ehlnofey. As the Dawn of time stirs at the first Kalpa the drums of war sound.
  5. The gigantic Wanderers from across amorphous Nirn, being labeled Men, then laid siege on the ramparts of the Old Ehlnofey Towers, dismantling the inner machinations of Cephorah wizards, and cracking the earth beneath their feet when summoning mighty Lorkhan called Shor. The planet wide continent split into twelve and the ocean is born as land, divinity, and memory slip into the past. The Eight finally passed and they then split into trinitarian aspects. Three truths. Physically they died and ascended their forms into the outer Mundus as the cosmic linchpins of creation called Planets. Mentally they linger among Nirn as subconscious dreamers manifesting their wills through thought and communicating with their progeny through love. Spiritually they ascended into the Aetherius through the Magnic sphere to await their children in the worlds to come with open arms. All but mighty Trinimac, the ever-vigil of his Lord El’s kingdom.
  6. The powerful Elders labelled Mer held to their ways and tried to build on other lands whenever Ehlnofey could no longer support them. They fled from the south when their towers fell and their home sank beneath the waves. Starfall. The Mer who stayed on the remnants of Old Ehlnofey in the far south braved the Kalpic winds and then resettled their home as the Aldmer Ancient Elves. Having to seize it from the multi-formed fairy-folk and their nature gods of earthly Gheatus, watery Chonus, and stormy Syrgia who fell up the chain of Fey. While those who fell to the opposing end of this morphia belong to the equally multi-formed Goblin-Ken who were either pushed from or enslaved on these isles they now called Summerset.
  7. Refugees from the original Twelve Worlds of Creation made landfall with their world and built an empire when their Kalpa came. Though originating from an Anuic paradigm these tree-like entities of immeasurable knowledge and experiences embrace and honor the Padomaic soul of Sithis. The Hist’s Realm of Nirn, in stark contrast to the ethereal forests and crystal spires of Old Ehlnofey, is a dank and ferocious mire that serves as little more than a staging ground for the disparate races of the Ehlnofey Wars. Not willing to be bystanders or victims of an apocalyptic war between Demi-Gods the Hist then did conspire.
  8. The Hist took up the Ehlnofic blood around them and infused them with their own magicka as saps. With this symbiosis the Hist forged their own race, the Argonian Lizard Folk, or as they call themselves the Saxhleel People of the Root. the Hist and Argonian alliance culminated in the Xanmeeri Civilization where the Hist would beset the Argonians onto any threats to the continent. In exchange the Argonians would receive ancient knowledge and forbidden powers with which they built mighty ziggurats called Xanmeer with ballistae that fire Magicka. This was the Golden Age of Argonian civilization, they were so powerful and successful in fact that they began to rival the trees that granted them this power in the first place.
  9. After the Xanmeeri Argonians built a great Stone Tower at the heart of the realm legend has it their were instances of Argonians overthrowing the Hist in rebellion. With this the Hist retreated into themselves and cut off all ties to their progeny. With their alliance sundered and a war eternal raging the Xanmeeri didn’t stand a chance and the same fate that befell Old Ehlnofey came to the Hist Realm. Duskfall. The pyramids were abandoned and the Lizard folk fell into tribal society. The Ehlnofey passed over the Marsh sinking most of it into the sea after destroyed the Stone Tower and leaving behind some primordial forms of Wandering Men like the Silver-skinned Kothringi and the eyeless Orma.
  10. Like the Isles of Summer the remnants of the Hist Realm were set adrift and merged with a yet uncivilized land. The Hist after allowing sufficient time to pass, reestablished contact with the Argonians and helped to rebuild the more tribal civilizations of the Saxhleel of the now Black Marsh peninsula. Meanwhile some Ancient Elves left in the passed days of Aldmeris called Elder Ehlnofey, or so legend says. Sunder. The third Kalpa becomes manifest as Lyg the Adjacent Place to the Starry Heart of Tamriel. Bellowing from the sea she holds a multitude of troglodytes and monstrosities beholden to nothing but loveless craft.
VERSE III
  1. Chief among the beasts of the first oceans where the Dreugh Coral Kings who spread their slaver’s empire from shore to shore. Then extended their reach further to the very edge of Oblivion as they followed their new God King who they called Molag-Bal. they built for him a Tower Change which he ruled on high before clawing his way to a throne in the night sky. Dreugh enslaved Man, Mer, and Beast alike and scattered their own like across their known world, things like Eltheric Worms, Snake Hags, Frog Queens and all other manner of deep folk. Their reach spread too thin and their hubris too high and so the Dreugh fell harder then anyone else sending ripples across Nirn carrying there now feral brood across planetary waters.
  2. Legend says three stars fell named Merid-Nund, Mnemo-Li, and Xero-Lyg came to the slaves of Lyg and aided them to build a Tower Hope. The first was a traitor and consorted with Molag Bal to make the seed of Hope, a god called Dagon. Now she was banished from Magnus’ grace and named Meridia where all that was her was thrown from heaven and refracted into Oblivion. Dagon called Mehrunes did emerge from the Tower and quaked Lyg with the fury of four winds. The slaves did rejoice and they painted themselves Red like their new god Dagon. Man, Mer, and Beast alike bloodied and brazen to aquire more paint to honor their god. He then did lay waste to the empire of his father and caste him down from his now shattered Tower. And they hence wrestled for supremacy into the night for all time leaving Meridia hordes of broken bodies she was only trying to help save.
  3. So sank Lyg and her kings and slaves and cities. Rainfall. Cascading down the nine oceans of the next world. Old Ehlnofey was sundered too but her vestigial remnants linger like all time rivers past. Her heart became Summerset. Yffre’s bones drifted to the primordial star where her Trees stood adjacent to the old heart of Tower Red, and the Trees of Hist yet stand adjacent to Tower Ur, an island spouts up at her center and overshadowed by a Tower of Snow and Song. A stage for a climax. At present a wild shred of those Old Earth Bones did then writhe and twist into a storm of yet to be. Becoming a Tower in the Sea called Pyandonae. Those Mer-kin left in this primordial maelstrom mutated alongside animal-kin into terrible beasts of water and hunger. They and their Serpent King Orgnum where hence Maormer Sea Elves. Pirates tell of Hist cousins in those waters, but none can say truly.
  4. By the tradition of Orgnum’s immortal dynasty the mission of the Maormer is to escape Pyandonae and seize the Summerset for their own. Waves crashing. Across the sea to the north lay the equally wild and primordial lands of Tamriel where the divide between Old Bones of Mer and Old Bones of Earth were blurred. The extrakalpic terrain hadn’t settled and so her people mutated. The Argonians had Old Hist to guide them, the Goblins pushed from Summer became much more maniform and manifold (growing to Orc, and Ogre, and shrinking into Gremlin, Redcap, Riek, and Hob), Fairy-kin doing as they’ve always done, whatever their whimsy’s wish, and the Wanderers stood at heights unimaginable.
  5. The Aldmeri thus dubbed this land Tamri-El and built their Tower Crystal which echoes in all spaces. Their brethren left these lands westward and become as shapeless as the continent. Forest Folk, Shapeshifters, Changelings, Ooze, Oathbreakers, Betmer, Wild Hunters, Monsters. They may run as cats, stand as trees, snarl like lizards, ascend like birds and then bite like an insect. They mastered there world and threatened her before she had a chance to stand on her own. So much it made Earth Bones shudder and Daedra weep. Azurah did extend her influence on Nirn as she had sympathy for her brother’s children where her nocturnal sister showed indifferent gloom. Azurah and Yffre then did sing a dirge for the Moons thrice. Symphony. These songs brought order to the formless south and so was born the Bosmer Wood Elves, Khajiit Cat Men, and many others of fur, scale, feather, shell, or skin. Some however ran east for they liked to change, and they where only heard from again on the winds of whispers. Tosh.
  6. Under twin Moons and over a third the Cats took the place of their forbears as hegemony as their kin grow a Tower of Green. They spread from Wood to Marsh to Land of Heart and even further still on Bandaari tribal trail. Embracing passion and peace and everything in-between as they hunt the grey at night, snarling the name Khajiit. They climbed the rubied-silver and fell back down when reaching ebony twisted and mangled as they had once been before Azurah. They call by the name of Dro’Mathra. The Sands and Forests of mighty Nibenay is the home to all Cats, but where then sundered to a sixteen few who became two. Then Mer of Green and Gold had come and the Khajiit knew their kin even if the Aldmeri knew of them not and beset both Tiger and River Dragon on the intruders.
  7. The Aldmer send their pilot Topal who charts these lands for Alinor and Auri-El’s Dynasty and inspiring all manner of colonizations. Then they sent Ancient Torinaan to settle the other isles. To the western left was Topal’s sister ship who’s name is lost to time. They made of their desert wasteland colony a vast empire that outshines Aldmeri Summerset in sheer scope alone. They became the Sinistrals and where master geomancers. They then built upon there shores the Tower Orichalc of what they say was sacred ore around a relic of ancestral sanctity. By royal decree a sister kingdom to Summerset was to be established in the northern tundras and volcanos and mountains of what they would call the Elder Wood or Alt-Mora. Dragon forged at the peak of Tamri-El.
  8. So these Mer did go and colonize and made a glorious home of Ice and Snow and became the pale folk of such places in the north called Falmer Snow Elves. Just as they had settled so came the Men who had trekked the twelve realms by now. They were following the will of their god Shor called Lorkhan and his immortal son called Ysmir by his sons called Nords (who had Giant wives) and Shorrine by his sons called Nedes (who numbered as stars do) who, upon his death, is born again among Men, but rarely as an Elf or Beast as well. Aided by the wife of Shor-Ysmir the Mammoth Queen Jylkurfyk of the South, they laid siege to the Elder Wood. The Queen is of a dynastic clan of Giant Men who guides the Wanderers in their walkabout across Nirn. The Mammoth Rider’s sisters, a Queen of Scorpions called Hoon’Ding who favored the Dragon ventured west with her people, and a Queen of Serpents name Ilnyfa-Mynzsa who chased her four daughters east who ran like wild monkeys alongside her people to where Alduin did rest between frenzies with his horde and drove him west with a vengeance.
  9. The war was so mighty that it killed the Mammoth Queen and the Storm King Ysmir then did howl as a Dragon would breath fire. He shouted so fiercely that every Elf and Beast and Orc that lived in the north fled it’s wake to unknown corners if they lived at all. The Snow Elves however did find a home among the mountains betwixt Convention and Doom’s Drum where Kynareth does sing much like Nirn. So the northern Tribes of Men built a kingdom among Giants and called her Atmora, after the Elvan name, and Ysmir did found his capitol here overlooking the sky’s rim to the south ever vigilant of Demons and Monsters, and he named her Jylkurfyk.
  10. The Atmoran Men where not uniform in there ways though, and none new the art of Towers for this was Demon-craft. The world turns again on Atmora this time but with no battlement to defend her she dies a slow death. Exposed and cold the Old Woods begin to freeze over in a sea of ice. A glacial ocean did sweep across the north. Slowly, but with all the frigid uncertainty of Sithis himself. Frostfall. Troll-Kin’s Curse. Atmora broke apart and her people scattered. The Giants and Nedes sailed home to Tamriel where the everstorm began to dissipate. Their tribes flourished, but Nords stubborn in their ways of nature and animal worship turned from the wisened Fox of Shor to the powerful Dragon of Alduin immortal son of Akatosh, a Sea Wyrm who chews apart the realms at the end of their time leaving only memorial waters and so made a realm of his own for a time over men, for all Dragons, like their father, are rulers by nature. Whether they are kings or despots depends on the Dragon.
VERSE IV
  1. As their subjects began to die off and fled of their own accord the Dragon Cult risked a war with the Ysmir and so did take his kingdom south to escape the devastation and built Saarthal. Upon arrival the Principality of the Falmer and the Settlement of Saarthal made peace and exchange. Falmer were no strangers to Men, knowing and even welcoming the Kreath of the Fall, the Galen of the Reach, Bretics of the West, the Cyrods of the Heart, and the Askelde of the East. The Draconic Nords found an old stone in a cave adjacent to the Throat. Either placed by God or Elf this stone’s discovery infuriated the local Falmer as though the Nords had disgraced an ancestral tomb. Tears. Blood. All the Nords dead or fled.
  2. Aldmeri colonies across Tamriel began establishing themselves vanquishing or enslaving all manner of Man and Beast along the way. Old House Direnni led by Cygnus made a home at the foot of the Adamantine and took in the tribes of Men to their high rock zero and made wives of them. Where the Manmer were born a caste was made between Mer, Manmer, and Man. In the Deathlands the House of Corelanya, who did worship Daedra as folk there so often did, made a home keeping mostly to themselves. In the great, green woods known as Valen where Mer, Man, Beast, Goblin, and Fey are all embraced. The golden Aldmeri Kingdom of Alinor and the wooded Bosmeri Tribes establish relations that will last as long as Tamriel for better or for worse. The grey wizard clans who settled Vvardenfell were never heard from again, but when Mer reestablished contact with the region thy found the Dwemer Dwarves in their stead. Dotting the northeastern underground were others would find ash and snow, working on their magics uninhibited by their neighbors.
  3. Auridon worshippers of Ancestor, Ancient, and Starlight made a colony in the Heartland of Tamriel as a client state to Alinor. They built a Tower of White and Gold and so made a Kingdom of their own of bronze skin and alien Ehlnofic ways called Aylied. They, like Bosmer, where of many tribe, clan, and kingdom but united under the banners of Imperial White and Gold. The Ayleids were the cruelest of masters to their subjects, especially Nedic Men, and so made sport and art of their bones. Another dissident culture to the Summerset was that of the Prophet Veloth and his silver Chimer North Elves.
  4. Elder Trinimac saw his children flee and war and he had had enough. Where the Dragon’s holy knight commanded that the Mer mourn their fallen forefathers and foremothers they instead turn to daemons and infighting. The final chord was struck when Veloth denied Trinimac in the face of all summer and followed Moon-and-Star across Tamri-El to where flame reached highest. Trinimac then rallied his faithful against the shattering crystal. He called to sands, snows, summer and stars and they came in droves for the last ancestor. In a field of battle lost to known time somewhere between Hegathe and Resdayn Holy-Knight Trinimac stood before Rebel-Prophet Veloth and made an exchange of Nym, Tone, Song, and Prophecy. Words of truth that can only be seen by three angles.
  5. Ur-Dra. Boethiah then did make herself manifest as the world turns on new stars. She lurched forward from behind Veloth and took the Knight into her maw between words and projected him into Pado-Meridian. Spilled blood of the final Aedra made for the last Aldmer to be split thrice. Those who drank of the blood to honor the night became as chrome. Those who wore the blood to honor the father became as orichalc. Those who saw the blood mist turn to ash and could do nothing about it became as gold. The new Chimer did praise the names of Azurah, Mephala, and Boethiah and become strict ascetics relinquishing the decadence of their kin and embracing hardship to find a new home at the foot of Red Mountain. They drove out the Men and pursued Daedra whether they see them as good or bad and warred with Dwarves in a culture they called High Velothi.
  6. All of Goblin blood bid march unto their god which they’ve been waiting for since they became diaspora. They’ve known him by all number of names where Mer knew him as one. From West and South the Orcs cried Mauloch the Mountain Storm, and hailed the new City Orcs as their own, along with Wood, Iron, and Ice they united as the Orsimer. Pariah. Rebel. Other. From the West still the Giant Ken did cry Malooc the Horde King. From the north the Riekr-kin cried out to Morkey the Father. From the East unknown hosts cry out to Kamal the Snow Demon. From the south the Ogres marched and cried out Morkha the Ashen Chief. And from the four winds all manner of Goblin-Ken, massive, minuscule, ancient, new, deformed and mystic came and cried to Malak Darkfey. Then where Boethiah once stood the charred bones of old Trinimac stood anew as Malacath, who forever wages war on the night.
  7. The black skinned Empire of westward Mer did then clash with the Men of the Dune Mother’s charge as the world turns once more. The largest kingdom of Mer fell by the hands of their own subjects and nomadic raiders who called themselves by the name for the land they just seized, Yokudan. Mirroring the victory of their northern kin they built a kingdom of manifold people; Equestrian Nomads, Bird Cults, Nomadic Warlords, Bladed Saints, Pirate Kingdoms, and Desert Madmen. Traits held steadfast in the hearts and minds of all Yoku Men for they all follow the Tall Papa who commanded they wander in walkabout. These rivaling kings and gods did then sunder the lands between themselves for the Yoku their is no distinction between war and faith.
  8. Mer and Man fighting to the north, west, east, and south of them is where the Thrassian Worm-Toads made their stand, or squat rather. For that is all their fat bodies would allow them to do. Because of this they needed spellcraft, and traded any thing or one in exchange for it to Masters known and otherwise. Namira, Sithis’ faithful. Vaermina, guide and mirage. Molag-Bal, Father of Dreugh and Worm. Crystalline Jyggalag and his other. Vile Clavicus. Hermaeus, Secret teacher of Julianos. Chief of all is Prince Peryite the mock Dragon. Taskmaster of rats did beckon unto the slovenly Sload and bequeathed what he named “blessings for mortality”. The necromancers did meditate on this for a millennia as is their way and amassed their hosts of bones while Man and Mer see that each other’s blood feeds the great ancestors.
  9. From their midst, in the dust of battle, rose a tribe unlike those before. Not of the Yokeda Horse Lords, nor Totambu Imperial, nor the multitudinous kingdoms between. Rogue mages, warriors, and thieves sang a Dirge called Hira which disturbed Ruptga so that he was forced to send his firstborn Al-Leki to sing a Song called Pankrato. All the Djinn and Abatwa and Willoki did burrow, fly, and flee lest they be swallowed by the now trembling sands beneath them displaced by the hunger of two-fold Serpents. Rustfall. Cavalry bedu drove into the sea. Hira sing themselves into liquid tombs guarded by mermaids where Dragons even forget they spoke at all.
40.Men of kingdoms Totambu, Yathi, Ra Gada, Anka Ra, Sataki, Banthan, Tavan and countless others gathered their histories and horses and set to walkabout the earth once more on the decks of a fleet unrivaled. They passed over Thrassian spires of Coral and bone. Feeding the dead legions as much as cutting them down. The Yoku knew they could make no home here among bloated monsters and the desiccated and desecrated remains of generations and civilizations untold, and so left the Sload as quickly as they had made landfall. The Sload saw what Men had done to their land in the west and this shook the avarice Worms with dread. They remember the Adjacent lands and knew the river of time had carved its way to the Coral Kingdom for they are privy to those kinds of secrets.
VERSE V
  1. The sun hangs over the heart of Thras at a Tower known as Coral ignited with unholy flame while morning strikes Tamriel. The New Coral Kings upon necrotic thrones did take heed to the words of Peryite they decising on who to bless. A slow and cerebral people would take a millennium to come to such a decision. Awaiting Firefall. Elsewhere a great north wind blows as the spilling of innocent blood in totality, blowing with the ferocity of all the gales and howls of a Drake. Ysgrammor made it back to the last Jarldom of Atmora and rallied five-hundred angry swords and fiery tongues to mount an assault on the Falmer for the Night of Tears. He called Azhidal the Clever man, Jeek of the Jorvaskr, and Myrfwiil the shadow-scout to name a few. Then they sailed southward.
  2. Upon their Return the Nords laid siege to the Mer with such force of strength and voice that not even any Falmeri structures remain today except maybe in the mythic Forgotten Vale. Shattered like glass. The rest were driven east to Solstheim or underground with Dwarves. Upon Solstheim is where the Falmeri civilization made its final stand with their sovereign the Snow Prince, a near religious figure. They stood and fell where they did and for this they honored their Prince with a burial dedicated to the kings of Men amid enchanted ice and snow. The Nords took the land they now call Skyrim and made it their own alongside their Dragon Gods.
  3. The Dovah Drakes and their angelic matriarchs held far reaching influence among mortal hearts. They flew as far south to the sweetened waters of Niben and made a cult among the Khajiit as well as Men. They knew of Alduin called al-Khan but this cult worshipped the spirit of the Time God himself called al-Kosh. They sought to follow their gods and prophets to the moons from a broken Tower stolen from Giants. Their were falsehoods in the lunar court of al-Kosh and so the legendary Khunzar-Ri sealed the silver worms beneath the halls of their ill-gotten. This was indeed the age of Khajiiti heroes for at this same mythic age came Raijhin, Trickster, Liar, Thief of Thieves. He would go on to outshine the Baan Dar and steal from the very shadow of Nocturnal herself and earn her favor.
  4. As one Drake fell so another fell as the Nords began to wage war against the sky tyrants once one of their own names Miraak took to the dragon’s blood for himself and claimed Solstheim for his own. It was a hard fought war but a just one as the plight of Men under Dragon rule and their dark priesthoods had dissuaded Dragons from the very sky to fight other Dragons. Their king was purged atop the Snow-Throat and so the first Kingdom of Man on Tamriel is established. The line of Ysgramor had thus introduced the runes so that w may remember these great heroes and villains and prevent their stories from being corrupted. However to a Nord words are like water and will flow in many forms and the mind remembers it.
  5. The Dwemer of the Deep had long since stretched the reach of their freeholds and clans and city-states from the mountains of Wrothgar to the Isle of Vvardenfell. The Chimer on the other hand through constant warfare with the Dwemer as well as tribal infighting caused them to dissolve into a wayward people of the ash. The advanced warcraft and Magicka practices of the Dwarves only being matched by their cousins of the Summset. Where the Deep Folk build airships to travel, golems to fight, and a Tower to ascend the traditional Aldmeri progeny develop Sunbirds to sail the Oblivion night into the divine shores of Aetherius in the hopes of carving a passage of escaping Mundus for Merkind.
  6. The cruel masters of the White and Gomd came to a game as in their civilization. Though they all and forever will revere the Ge of Magna the Ayliedoon Altmeri rallied behind two kings who championed their contenting Gods. Around the City the greatest temple to the Aedric divines rallied the worshippers of the Eight called Barseabics and dug into the earth for their Empire had turned to the Daedric Princes for patronage and power. Lo the Aedra are mighty they do yet slumber amid mortality and cannot stand for their champions where Daedric favored are granted wisdom and relics that may lay waste to civilizations, and lay waste they did. The Atatarics pushed to Barseabics out in the Narfinsel Schism. Pushed them all the way east to a land of banished slaves, beastial horrors, and Velothi savages.
  7. In the absence of Draconic or Merrish rulers the Men of the North be they Nord or Kreath or Nede then did unify in their reverance of Shor, Kyne, and the eternal Sovngarde. Men of the South where manifold, but less fortunate. To the west all but the Witches of the Reach took on Elvan spouses and so bred the Nedes from High Rock. Leaving only the slave called Breton under the hegemony of Clan Direnni. Western still the warrior nomads of al-Ghema and al-Hared who live among Hegathi Khajiit warring with Corelanya and Aylied alike. The Men of Ket called Keptu who would often escape to the Reach. Tribes Horwalli and Yerpest gathered by the Barseabics to build new cities amid dense wood and muck. Men of the Green escaping slavers were welcomed with open hearts and homes into the tribes Bosmeri. They perhaps took to the trees better than the native Mer becoming the arboreal tribes of Imga.
  8. A Man like no other before or after him did walk the lands at this time. He had a thousand names and even more titles, but to the Nords he was Ysmir Whitestrake. His flesh was as cold steel. His arm as scorpion. His heart as crystal blood. His hair as silver. His eyes far reaching. This ancient soul did wander among Men fighting their Elven lords and bequeathing the land unto them when he left to start again. He fought alongside northlanders against the Folk of Ice and Snow. He fought with deathlanders against Mer and Magnus. He fought with woodlanders to ensure their safe passage to new lands. Now he comes to the Heartland where he fights along a tribe called Sedor numbered a thousand, but outnumbered a thousand to one and emerged victorious only to roam again. Crusade.
  9. Recorded time begins as the Valenwood is being united under reign of the High King Camoran Eplear. Kingdoms and tribes have long ruled the southern jungles but never before had a mainland region been so unified under the rule of a single sovreign. Everywhere else fought between tribe and clan, but the Camorans established strength in their taming the wilds and wisdom in their eternal bond with the Silvenar and his Green Lady. Be they Man, Mer, Orc, Satyr, or Centaur all are welcome in Camoran’s Kingdom so long as they respect the Green of his land. And so marks the first year of the First Era. The break of Dawn.
  10. The Starry Heart of Dawn’s Beauty where the spirit of Nirn sleeps and dreams of change.

2020.07.20 18:18 patthepatriot2020 The Force Unleashed I & II Recanonized and Remastered (my own ideas)

I previously already posted a story idea for a recanonized version of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, but upon looking back, I realize it was not as refined as it could have been. That in consideration, this is my new, refined version of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Recanonized and my new idea for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II.
We open on a Jedi master on Kashyyk fighting his way through some stormtroopers with a pair of wookiees acompanying him. After fighting his way through several squads, the master finally comes to his hideout beneath a large tree, only to find the black silhouette of Darth Vader standing at its entrance.
“Dark Lord!” he cries, “Whatever you’re looking for, you won’t find it here!” Vader ignites his lightsaber, and the two fight. Vader beats the master and slams him against a wall with the Force.
“I still sense many presences nearby. Tell me, where are you hiding those younglings?” Vader demands, pointing his saber at the master’s throat.
“It seems that the Dark Side has clouded your mind for too long, Skywalker. You killed all of the younglings long ago!”
“Skywalker is dea-” Vader begins to say, but is interrupted by a lightsaber whizzing towards him. He blocks it, and watches it fly back into the hands of its owner, a bold youngling with black hair and a stern gaze. Behind him are several other younglings, all with their lightsabers out.
“There you are,” Vader says to them.
“Run!” the master commands them, but Vader has crushed his windpipe, and he dies. Disheartened at the loss of the master, and intimidated by the rush of clone troopers that have entered the room, they surrender, but not the black haired young boy. He lunges at Vader, who deflects his attacks with ease and kicks him to the ground. Inside his head, Vader notes how he is impressed by the boy’s willingness to continue fighting where the others gave up. The clones raise their blasters to fire.
“No!” Vader commands them. “Not these. These ones are for a special purpose.”
Flashforward nearly ten years, and all of the younglings are knighted as Imperial Inquisitors, and the black haired Jedi, named Galen Marek, is dubbed the First Brother, and is given his dual-bladed lightsaber. Since these are the first inquisitors to be deployed, their lightsabers are not yet able to helicopter. Galen’s suit is similar to the one in this fanart piece.
He is joined by Proxy, one of the lightsaber training droids he had bonded with, and the two go to their private ship, the Rogue Shadow, piloted by Juno Eclipse. They already have their first assignment: go to Nar Shaddah, where a large star destroyer manufacturing facility was recently attacked by a sect of rebels believed to be led by a Jedi. Galen locates the Jedi, known as Rham Kota, and duels him. During the duel, his dual-bladed lightsaber is sliced in half, giving him two lightsabers. He blinds Kota and pushes him out of a hole in the floor, and believes him to be dead.
His next mission is on Raxus Prime to kill the insane Jedi Kazdan Parartus, who has built a massive replica of the Jedi Temple out of garbage. He fights him with great difficulty, but manages to kill him. His third mission is on Felucia, against Jedi Master Quinlan Vos, who is raising a new apprentice of his own named Marris Brood. He duels Master Vos, who warns Galen that the sith always betray one another, and chooses to commit suicide by jumping into a sarlaac pit.
Galen returns to Coruscant and is met by Lord Vader. Galen tells him what Master Vos said about the Sith betraying one another, and asked Vader if it was true. Vader said that Galen was not a Sith, only an inquisitor.
“However, you can become one. Join me, and become my apprentice, and in the future, we shall defeat the Emperor, and we shall reign as the new Sith Lords.” Galen accepts Vader’s offer, and Vader dubs him Darth Starkiller. Vader gives Starkiller his new mission.
There are sects of rebels growing all across the galaxy that seek to overthrow the Empire and restore the Republic, and Vader believes that he can use this to his advantage. He tasks Starkiller with uniting them all against the Empire. The cost is that he must sever all ties to his past, including his old crew and the rest of the inquisitors. As far as everybody is concerned, he is dead.
Starkiller’s first mission as Vader’s new apprentice is to begin recruiting the sects of rebels, beginning with any Jedi. He finds Rham Kota, miraculously alive, blind and and reduced to an alcoholic, on Nar Shaddah. He convinces him to join the rebels, and they escape the Imperial forces that are hunting him.
Their next stop is back on Imperial occupied Kashyyk, where Senator Bail Organa, a major imperial dissenter, is. Starkiller stumbles across the hideout where he and the rest of the younglings were hid by their master. He has a vision of what happened that day, and the memories of his old life as a Jedi come back to him. He liberates several of the wookiee slaves, earning Organa’s respect and convincing him to join the rebels. He does, however, have an important task for Starkiller. He must travel to Felucia, where his daughter, Leia, is being held hostage by Marris Brood, Quinlan Vos’s former apprentice, who has succumbed to the Dark Side.
Starkiller defeats Brood, but decides to spare her life, and frees Leia, taking her back to her father.
After sparing Brood’s life, Starkiller begins to reconsider becoming Vader’s apprentice. He confines in Kota about this, saying he wants to leave the Sith and join the rebellion for good. Kota listens to Galen’s story, and tells him that he can retrain him in the ways of the Jedi, and that they can defeat Vader and the Empire for good.
In order to convince more sects to unite, Galen attacks a massive Star Destroyer manufacturing facility on Correlia. Galen is attacked by Proxy, who finally wishes to fulfill his programming and kill him. Galen is forced to defeat him, but is surprised when Vader emerges from the shadows. Galen tells Vader the truth: that he no longer wants to be a sith, and is leaving the Empire for good.
Enraged, Vader fights Galen and knocks him away, then kidnaps the present rebellion leaders, leaving Galen alone with Proxy. The two come up with a plan to rescue Juno, who has been branded a traitor to the Empire.
She is being held in an Imperial prison on Umbara, and the two free her and explain what has happened. As they are leaving, they are faced by two inquisitors, both of which were friends of Galen’s. He is forced to kill one of them, but the other is killed by Proxy. Juno takes out the stormtroopers who began to flood the place.
Galen tracks the captured Rebel leaders to Corusnant, where they are beign interrogted by the Emperor himself. The leaders include Kota, Bail and Leia Organa, Mon Mothma, and Garm Bel Iblis.
Galen, Juno and Proxy fight their way though the hordes of stormtroopers and several inquisitors in Coruscant before reaching the Emperor’s palace. Galen fights his way through and finally meets Vader, but manages to work his way past him and enter the Emperor’s throne room. Kota steals the Emperor’s lightsaber to attack him, but is shocked by Force Lightning instead.
“Help him!” the young Leia pleads Galen. Realizing that Vader has entered the throne room, and that there is no way out, Galen activates his two lightsabers, and he and Kota duel the Emperor and Vader.
They barely manage to create an opening for the senators to escape to the Rogue Shadow, piloted by Juno, and Galen stays behind to let Kota escape as well. A massive blast of force energy sends Galen flying into a large computer, smashing it to bits. The Rogue Shadow escapes with the rebel leaders, and flies away from Coruscant.
Vader, who is battle damaged, and the Emperor inspect the wounded Galen. The Force blast burned him more than either of the Sith, and the machinery he smashed into left shards of metal and circuitry piercing his skin. His limbs were very burnt as well, and his breathing was weak and uneven.
“He is… still alive,” Vader said.
“And he has created the thing that could destroy us! This Alliance he has spawned could be this empire’s undoing,” the Emperor replied.
“But now we know who they are. I can hunt them down and destroy them as you intended me to do, my Master.”
“You must be relentless, Lord Vader. If even a single rebel survives, then we are finished.” The Emperor leaves as a few medics enter the room and begin handling Galen as Vader watches.
Meanwhile, back on Kashyyk, the senators commit to what Galen first wanted to do: unite all of the rebel sects under one alliance. Outside, Juno talks to Kota, who tells her that among Starkiller's dark thoughts, Juno herself was one bright spot that he held onto right until his death.
Back on Coruscant, Galen wakes up on a surgery table that has turned him perpendicular to the floor. He feels such terrible pain. A machine is forcing air in and out of his lungs, and several pieces of armor have been grafted onto his bare flesh. His legs, along with his right arm, are gone, replaced with prosthetics. The fingers are clawed on his metal hand, and on his flesh hand, metal claws have been jammed into the place where his fingernails once were. He is wearing a mask over his face, and the skin beneath it itched terribly. He more or less looks like this. Vader and the Emperor stood before him.
“You had such great potential,” Vader said. “You could have continued the line of the Sith, brought it greater than either of us could have.”
“Yes, and you wasted all of it,” the Emperor continued. “Still, we still have some small use for you in the inquisitor program. You shall do the bidding of the Empire for the rest of your days until the day we decide to cast you aside.”
“Finish the operation,” Vader commanded the surgeon droids as he left. The Emperor watched with sadistic pleasure as Starkiller screamed in agony as the surgery continued.
And now, here is The Force Unleashed II
For the past five years, Starkiller lived in constant agony. He rejoined the inquisitor program and still was forced to do missions, which consisted of destroying rebel sects that he wanted to help so badly. He is tortured by his own inner thoughts, of all of the former friends and allies he has been forced to kill, of his lost love for Juno, and by his own mutilated body. The other inquisitors loathe him, attacking him and beating him up to the point where he can’t fight back, calling him a filthy traitor, and then leaving him to wallow in his injuries.
He has never been stronger in the Dark Side.
Throughout the beginning of the game, Starkiller, who has been stripped of his title as “Darth”, is sent on several missions to defeat rebel forces across the Galaxy, but around a third of the way through the story, he is sent on an assignment to Cato Nemoidia, where he meets Rham Kota again.
“By the Force, I knew you were still alive,” Kota says, but Starkiller is forced to attack him. He nearly kills him, when a voice stops him.
“Hold it right there!” a woman shouts. Starkiller turns to see Juno Eclipse pointing a blaster at him. He turns off his lightsabers and turns to face his lost love.
“Juno?” Galen says.
“Galen?” Juno replies.
Their brief reunion is interrupted by a pair of inquisitors leaping down from a rooftop. One attempts to slice Juno down, but Galen blasts her to safety with the Force. One Inquisitor cuts off Galen’s prosthetic legs and restrains him, and the other fights Kota. An imperial ship hovers down and collects the two inquisitors. Juno, emerging from her hiding spot, throws a tracking beacon onto the ship as it flies away.
Starkiller is taken back to Coruscant, and is placed in a cell. Vader scolds him for saving a rebel (Juno) instead of killing her, and then leaves him to be tortured by the inquisitors.
The perspective changes. A small team of rebels has snuck onto Coruscant, including Rham Kota, a young Cassian Andor, and an aged Captain Rex. The three, along with several other troops, have planned a rescue mission to save Galen. The player takes the perspective of Captain Rex.
The team arrives at the prison where Galen is being kept, and breaks in. After fighting through stormtroopers and dueling an inquisitor, they finally arrive at Galen’s cell. A pair of medics takes him, and they rush out. Cassian shoots an Imperial security droid, but discovers that the droid is still slightly active. He argues that taking it could prove beneficial to the rebels. They could steal imperial data from him, and then reprogram him to fight for the rebels. Kota relents, and the droid is brought along.
The team escapes Coruscant and flies back to Yavin IV, the new rebel base which was established recently. Galen is taken to the medical facility to be treated for his wounds. He’s a hot mess.
Several pieces of armor were grafted directly onto his skin, which was pale and covered in sores, burns, and scars. The prosthetic limbs he was given were out of date and welded painfully onto his limbs. His body was jammed with shrapnel that had never been removed, and the suit was designed with strategically placed needles that stabbed him whenever he moved. He was missing an eye, and in its place a camera was jammed into the socket. His hair, which was once black, was now a pale white. His one remaining eye was yellow with the Dark Side.
The worst part of it all was probably the breathing apparatus which replaced his diaphragm, which was worn and broken, barely able to function at all, and it was jammed in place and couldn’t be removed.
Everything that could be removed or repaired (his faulty prosthetic limbs, his eye, the shrapnel, the armor pieces, etc.) was removed and repaired, but the breathing apparatus couldn’t be moved. He was placed in a bacta tank for long periods before he was removed. All that time he was healing, he was visited by Kota and Juno. Kota began teaching him the way of the Jedi, about letting go of your anger and hatred and letting the Force guide you.
Galen asked Juno if she would still love him, even after all of the horrible things he was forced to do for the Empire. Juno said nothing, but kissed him. As she did so, his eye faded back to its original color. He had let go of his hatred, and Starkiller was no more.
Galen’s red bladed lightsabers were replaced with new crystals, one being blue and the other yellow. His breathing apparatus, while it couldn’t be removed, was repaired. His breathing went from this to this. While breathing was still rather painful, it was a great improvement.
He also changed his wardrobe. He wore a mask that only covered his mouth and nose, leaving his eyes exposed, and he donned, some classic, light Jedi robes. His prosthetics were improved as well, while the old ones were welded directly onto his bones and were incredibly poorly built, his new ones were mounted on less painfully and ran much smoother. As he spent more time in the sun, his skin gained its color back and the sores and scars began to heal, and his hair changed back to black. He began to see himself in his reflection now.
Now that he was healed, he was eager to take the fight back to the Empire, especially facing Vader and getting justice for what he did. First, however, Kota had one last test for him. He had to enter a strange three-doored cave at the bottom of the base. Galen entered, and realized that his wounds were gone, and his limbs were back. He jumped back in terror as he saw several jedi, calling him a traitor, tangled in the vines of the cave. He initially went for his lightsabers, but then calmed himself. He had to keep a clear head. He brushed past the copies, and continued down the path. He then saw Juno standing in some fog, which turned into the bridge of a ship. Starkiller saw Juno get attacked, then limp towards him. He tried to call out to her, but the vision faded.
He exited the cave and described his vision to Kota. Kota says that these could be glimpses into the future, and he must be cautious for Juno’s sake. As they head back up to the main base, they receive an alert from Captain Rex: Juno’s ship, while she was on her own mission, has been attacked by Imperial forces, and it is believed she was taken hostage. The three coordinate an attack and go to rescue her.
They board the Imperial Star Destroyer that attacked Juno's ship and search for her and the crew. Galen is forced to fight several spider-like droids and Terror Troopers, as well as one last inquisitor, before finding Juno, unconscious. Boba Fett takes her and flies off. Galen chases after him all the way to the hangar, where the Slave I is docked. Rex quickly tosses a tracking beacon onto the ship before it flies off.
Galen tracks the ship down to Kamino. The rebel fleet arrives above Kamino, where it becomes apparent that the Imperial fleet was expecting them—the Rebellion suffers major casualties. Five boarding pods deploy Imperial troops onto the Salvation. Galen kills the invading Imperials, which includes two AT-STs and three AT-MPs. After clearing the hangar of the boarding pods, several Y-Wings were able to launch. Galen then progressed back the way he came, going through the drive core, clearing Imperials out of the engine room, and accessing the gunnery area. A lucky shot from a nearby Imperial I-class Star Destroyer rendered the Salvation's main gun offline. Galen used the Force to power the main gun, firing at the Star Destroyer with a shot so powerful, it cleaved it in half. From there, he proceeds to the bridge, where Kota orders the fleet to keep up the assault, despite numerous casualties. After informing Galen that Kamino's Planetary shield was preventing any ground assault, Starkiller told him that the shield would not survive a direct hit from a cruiser, and also advised him to get to the Rogue Shadow. Kota took the advice, but not before ordering everyone to abandon ship. Galen used the Force to clear debris out of the way during the ship's descent. Before the ship hit Timira City, Starkiller bailed out, and watched the ship hit the city
Plunging into the city, Galen comes across Imperial walkers and Incinerator war droids. He aids Kota's troopers several times, who in turn assist Galen by capturing the security center and deactivating security screens. An Imperial bombing run takes out a nearby bridge, but Kota and Galen were able to reform it, allowing the two Jedi to meet up. Kota said that the upper levels had been sealed off, though Galen went up there anyhow. Kota, unable to bear the conflict of Galen going to face Vader alone, risking his life for Juno's, begs Starkiller to rethink his actions, and to leave Juno behind. Attachment was not the Jedi way. Galen, however, informs the General that he cannot leave Juno behind, as he loves Juno. He then asks Kota why he chose to rescue him instead of simply leaving him behind. Before Kota can answer, Galen leaves.
As Galen progresses up the main tower, he came across thousands of cloning platforms. He came across fierce resistance in the form of Terror Troopers and one last Inquisitor.
Galen finally reaches the top of the spire, yet when he does, he finds himself plagued by anxiety, fear, hatred and love. He is unable to run, only walk through this self-inflicted nightmare. His anxiety, magnified greatly by the Force, crushes neighboring equipment. Visions of Vader himself attack him out of nowhere, although he was able to repel them, and voices of Juno and Kota echo around him, Juno labeling him a "monster" and a "thing", while Kota brands him "Vader's puppet."
Finally overcoming the visions, Galen enters a large cloning chamber, and sees Vader standing on a cloning platform. Vader and Galen duel. Numerous times, Vader throws cloning pods, and even platforms at Galen. Throughout his duel, Galen sees visions of his past. As the duel progresses, Galen and Vader lock blades just as the he receives another vision, this time of the future; a vision of him cradling Juno's body, saying that he 'should have stayed here'. Vader uses this distraction to break the bladelock, and push Galen away. He then hops onto one of the floating droids in the facility, and floats up to the room where he is keeping Juno, Galen following right after
Arriving in front of Vader, Galen demands to know Juno's location. Vader steps aside, and reveals her. Gripping Juno by the throat, using the Force, Vader orders Galen to bow before him, else Juno dies. Galen obeys, dropping his lightsabers. Juno is set down by Vader, and unseen by both Vader and Galen, crawls towards one of the discarded sabers. Vader orders Galen to execute Kota, give himself to the Dark Side, and to execute the remaining rebel leaders. If he did not do any of these, then Juno would die. However, Juno ignites the saber she picked up and slashes at Vader, but he dodges the attack and she is thrown through a window by him, landing on an electrified platform, seemingly dying. Galen, believing this has killed Juno, lets out a feral scream, succumbing to the Dark Side again, and charges Vader, summoning back his lightsabers. They engage in a brief lock before Vader grips and throws Galen as well, although he makes a perfect landing. Vader jumps down after him.
The two of them engaged in another duel, with Vader attempting to convince Galen that Juno and Galen's connection to her were both meaningless. Galen is inconsolable however, screaming that he will kill Vader. During the duel, Galen electrocutes Vader several times by pushing him against the electrical pylons surrounding the area. Vader at last disarms the Dark Jedi and throws him from the platform where the duel was taking place. Galen manages to grab onto the edge of the platform, and Vader attempts to dislodge him by throwing his lightsaber at him repeatedly. Galen manages to catch the lightsaber on it's fourth throw and tosses it back at Vader, severing the Dark Lord's right hand. The injury however, only momentarily distracts Vader, who, after missing Galen with a backhand punch, Force pushes him across the platform and attempts to crush him with one of the pylons. Galen barely manages to hold it off himself, and raises another pylon from the platform. Vader glances over at the second pylon, and Galen uses the distraction to toss the first pylon off himself. Using the Force, he causes the remaining pylons to release a huge amount of electricity, which he then absorbs and uses to blast an incredible amount of Force lightning at Vader, finally subduing him. Galen stands before Vader, pointing his lightsabers at the dark Lord’s head.
“You’ve taken everything from me!” Galen roars.
“Your feelings for her… are meaningless,” Vader heaves.
“They meant everything to me!”
Kota arrives, followed by Captain Rex and several other rebel troopers.
“You want him dead as much as I do, right?” Galen asks.
“Yes, but not yet! Not until he’s told us everything he can about the Empire!”
“You want to take him prisoner?”
“Back to our base where we can interrogate him and put him on trial for crimes agains the galaxy! And then we’ll execute him to show the galaxy that we don’t need to fear him or the Empire any longer!”
“But… if I let him live… he’ll haunt me forever.”
“He is the only one who knows the weaknesses that can destroy the Empire. He can’t tell us any of that if he’s dead!
As the storm around them subsides, Galen let go of his hate and deactivated his lightsabers. Kota ordered another trooper to get some restraints for Vader.
Galen finds Juno, who is being tended by some medics. They say she is alive, but in critical condition. She needs to get to a transport immediately if they want her to live. A ship touches down on the landing pad and she is taken there.
Later, on the ship, Juno is attached to life support machinery, and the doctors say she should recover. She wakes up, and kisses Galen on the mask that covers his mouth and nose.
The rebel fleet takes off from Kamino, but is interrupted when several more Star Destroyers come out of hyperspace, led by the Eclipse, the Emperor’s personal Super Star Destroyer.
Galen quickly puts Juno into a cryo-pod and takes her and several other rebels to an escape pod, then goes to find Vader, who has escaped. Boarding parties enter the ship, and begin sweeping for rebels. Galen quickly finds the bridge evacuated, adn wipes the ship of all of its databases, and sets it to self-destruct, then goes to find another ship. He leaps into a Y-wing, and then leaves to find the escape pods and hopefully Juno. Unfortunately, he is caught by several TIE fighters and forced to crash-land onto the nearby planet of Dathomir.
Galen survives, and searches nearby for supplies to survive. He thankfully finds a few escape pods, all of which contain survivors, one of which contain Juno. Unfortunately, their radio equipment is damaged, so they can’t call for help.
The rebel survivors are stuck there for ten years. All that time, Galen continues training himself to become a Jedi, though it is difficult without Kota’s guidance. Juno survives her injuries, and her and Galen are married, and have a daughter named Janie. Finally, tne of the rebels are able to catch the attention of a passing ship. They explain their situation to the captain, who takes them to Coruscant, the capital of the New Republic. There, Galen meets Chancellor Leia Organa, who explains all that has passed in the last ten years they were missing. The Empire has been dethroned, and Vader and the Emperor are both dead. Many of the rebel leaders have taken government positions in the New Republic. Kota has helped start the New Jedi Order on Yavin 4, along with the help of two Jedi known as Luke Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano. Captain Rex has retired form military service, and now lives on Yavin 4, close to the new Jedi Temple where the rebel base once was.
Galen, Juno and Janie go there, and they tell Luke, Kota and Ahsoka about everything that happened to them. Luke gives Galen a seat on the new council (since it’s lacking members) and lets Janie be trained as a Jedi.
The last scene is Galen, Juno and Janie visiting Rex in his retirement. He’s starting a small homestead in view of the Jedi temple, and wishes to live out the rest of his days in peace after all of the bloodshed he had to witness.
Well, that’s about what I have. Thank you all for reading. What did you guys think of this? Are there parts of it that need work, or is this a good story? Any criticism is welcome, so long as it’s constructive.

2020.07.15 18:02 LearningIsListening A not-so-brief rundown of letters J-L of Jeffrey Epstein's 'Little Black Book'

Below is a rundown of letters J-L of Epstein's contacts. Last year, I wrote about letters A-C. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/cpis3n/a_brief_rundown_of_the_first_ten_pages_of_jeffrey/).
I also wrote about letters D-F on July 5, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/hlrba8/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_letters_df_in_jeffrey/).
I posted letters G-I on July 13, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/hqko0y/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_letters_gi_in_jeffrey/). There are some misspelled names. Epstein entered their names like this.
I have bolded some of the more interesting connections and information, but there could be much more that I overlooked. I hope something here strikes an interest in someone and maybe we can get more investigations out of this. Please, if you know anything more about any of these people than what is presented here, post below. I am working off of the unredacted black book found here: https://www.coreysdigs.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Jeffrey-Epsteins-Little-Black-Book-unredacted.pdf
J-L
Jackson, Michael (Samuel Gen): Yes, this is a reference to MJ the singer. However, the numbers listed are not MJ’s. They belong to Samuel Gen, a lawyer for a financial advisor (Jerry Seinfeld’s brother-in-law) who worked for MJ for a while. This one was a reach for Epstein.
Jacobson, Julian: Likely a reference to a Managing Director at several London-based investment firms.
Jagger, Mick: World-famous lead singer of the Rolling Stones. Has been seen in photographs with Ghislaine Maxwell. Actress Rae Dawn Chong claims she slept with Jagger when she was 15 years old.
Jagger, Hatti: Former fashion director for Vogue, Harper’s, and Tatler. Also works as a celebrity stylist and at fashion shows.
jake: Not enough info.
Jameel, Mohammed: Saudi Arabian businessman. CEO of Abdul Latif Jameel, a collective of family-owned businesses that specialize in transportation, investing, and real estate. Royal pervert Prince Andrew infamously partied on Jameel’s yacht during the 2011 London riots (source: https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/prince-andrew-frolicks-on-yacht-with-mystery-147496).
James, Susie: Founder and owner of 123 Send Ltd, a company that provides payment terminals.
Janklow, Linda: Literary agent and wife of Mort Janklow, the primary owner of Janklow & Nesbit Associates, the largest literary agency in the world. Attended a party hosted by Sony Pictures with Epstein, although they are not pictured together (source: https://www.patrickmcmullan.com/search/?event=5b3ef4fb9f92906676446c21). In 2007, Ghislaine Maxwell threw an exclusive party (80 carefully selected guests) at her NYC townhouse to celebrate the opening of a new shop by designer Allegra Hicks (granddaughter-in-law of Earl Mountbatten, who you can read more about in my G-I Epstein thread under India Hicks’s name). One of the eighty guests was Julie Landlow, daughter of Linda and Mort.
Jarecki, Nancy & Andrew: Andrew is a filmmaker, co-founder of Moviefone, and was a producer on Catfish, the documentary that launched the popular MTV show. Andrew’s family was reportedly friends with Jeffrey Epstein. There is an EXCELLENT thread on the connections between the Jarecki family (especially Andrew and Nick’s father, Henry) and Epstein here (source: https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1200044576947556352.html). Quick summary: Henry was born in Nazi Germany; flew on the Lolita Express; is an expert in psychotropic drugs; owns two islands in the British Virgin Islands; founded the first youth center in the British Virgin Islands; lived 2 miles from Epstein in NYC; owns and donates to many sketchy foundations, schools, and organizations; has donated at least $1 million to leftist organizations). Andrew’s wife Nancy created bettybeauty, a company that specializes in hair dye for your nether regions (not kidding).
Jarecki, Nick: The movie director brother of Andrew and son of Henry Jarecki (see link under Andrew & Nancy Jarecki for more info). Reportedly dated Courtney Love (also in Epstein’s ‘Black Book’) in 2015. Photographed with Ghislaine Maxwell at a Gucci party (source: https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/ghislaine-maxwell-and-nick-jarecki-attend-gucci-hosts-a-news-photo/591605562).

Johnson, Richard & Nadine: Nadine is a millionaire public relations guru. Nadine is a good friend of Ghislaine Maxwell’s. Some clients of Nadine Johnson include spirit cooking extraordinaire Marina Abramovic and hotelier Andre Balazs, good friend of Ghislaine. Richard is one of the most well-known gossip columnists and was the editor of Page Six for twenty-five years. There is a great thread detailing the Johnsons’ ties to the Clintons, Balazs, and others here (source: https://threader.app/thread/1162148078981394432). Basically, Richard Johnson is friendly with the Clintons and, as Page Six Editor, purposely did not report or downplayed stories on the Clintons and Nadine’s clients. He also took bribes. Considering Nadine is a good friend of Ghislaine, it would not be a stretch to assume that Richard could have buried stories on Maxwell and Epstein. I could spend 10 pages on the shady connections these two have.
Johnson, Lucy: Not enough info.
Jones, Ann & Mick: Mick is the guitarist of Foreigner, an immensely popular rock band in the ‘70s and ‘80s. His wife, Ann, is a jewelry designer, and friend of Ghislaine.

He worked as Special Project Officer for the U.S. Department of State under President John F. Kennedy and AG Robert F. Kennedy. He had tons of connections. His former maid accused him of sexual harassment in 2010 (source: https://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/maid-harassment-suit-claims-ad-exec-leo-arthur-kelmenson-madman-pervy-mad-men-wannabe-article-1.156915). Kelmenson died less than two months after the story came out.
Kennedy Cuomo, Andrew & Kerry: Andrew is the current governor of New York. It’s no secret that Cuomo is willing to look the other way on sexual deviancy as long as he receives a payoff. Cuomo halted a probe into the handling of Harvey Weinstein’s case in New York after receiving $25,000 from Weinstein’s law firm (source: https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/bjbqg4/andrew-cuomo-received-dollar25000-donation-from-harvey-weinsteins-law-firm). Andrew’s brother, CNN Host Chris Cuomo famously told viewers “not to get caught up in the intrigue of who Epstein’s friends are” (source: https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2019/07/11/cnn_cuomo_lets_not_get_caught_up_in_the_intrigue_of_who_was_friends_with_jeffrey_epstein.html). Perhaps, he was covering for his brother. Kerry Kennedy is Cuomo’s ex-wife of fifteen years, the daughter of RFK, and a close friend of Ghislaine Maxwell. Supposedly, Kennedy provided Ghislaine with informal illegal advice (source: https://www.splicetoday.com/politics-and-media/the-nth-word-and-m-theory).

Bobby kept a sex journal detailing his conquests while he was married (source: https://nypost.com/2013/09/08/rfk-jr-s-sex-diary-of-adultery/). His ex-wife, Mary, committed “suicide” two years after their divorce. Before committing suicide, Mary told a friend that she “feared for her life” and Bobby told her that she “would be better off dead” (source: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3231043/How-serial-cheater-Bobby-Kennedy-Jr-strutted-family-home-exposing-private-parts-demanded-m-nage-trois-wife-Mary-went-public-Cheryl-Hines-telling-Mary-things-easier-killed-herself.html).
Kennedy, Ethel: Widow of RFK Sr. and mother of eleven, including Bobby Kennedy, Kerry Kennedy, and Joseph Kennedy II.
Kennedy, Jo: Joseph Kennedy II is the son of RFK Sr. and Ethel. Served in the House of Representatives from 1987-1999. In 1973, Joseph was convicted of negligent driving after paralyzing a young woman. He was fined $100.

Besides politics, Ted is best known for the Chappaquiddick incident in which a young female speechwriter for RFK drowned to death when he lost control of his vehicle while driving across a bridge. He was charged with leaving the scene of an incident and given a two month suspended sentence. Ted was also notorious for his extramarital affairs. Senator Kennedy once hosted a party at his house attended by Bill Clinton and Lynn Forester de Rothschild. Rothschild wrote a letter to Clinton afterwards in which she mentions that they spoke about Epstein (source: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7283825/Jeffrey-Epstein-injured-jail-cell-following-possible-suicide-assault.html). It is unclear what was said or what Rothschild’s connection could possibly be.
Kersner, Sol: South African accountant and hotel and casino magnate who died of cancer in 2020. Kerzner was a close friend of Donald Trump. They even worked together to create The Palm, a man-made island off the coast of Dubai (source: https://www.ft.com/content/46393280-d9f9-11da-b7de-0000779e2340). Kerzner was also close friends with Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York (https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/sarah-ferguson-the-duchess-of-york-sol-kerzner-chairman-and-news-photo/83768272), Naomi Campbell (https://www.gettyimages.ca/detail/news-photo/naomi-campbell-and-sol-kerzner-pose-backstage-during-the-news-photo/82869744), and Bill Clinton (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8144647/As-Sol-Kerzner-dies-aged-84-RICHARD-KAY-looks-riotously-louche-life.html). Kerzner was very good friends with Nelson Mandela and built his casino resorts with Gerard Inzerillo, who you can read about in my G-I ‘Black Book’ thread.

Not only did Ghislaine serve as Director, but she was also a shareholder, along with the Rothschild family (source: https://nationalpost.com/news/world/in-hiding-for-years-epstein-accomplice-ghislaine-maxwell-spotted-in-l-a-burger-shop). If you click around the PDFs on this website (https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/05340072/filing-history), you can see everything. The 16 JUN 2006 PDF on page 3 shows you a list of Officers and shareholders of the company. Jemma Kidd has also attended charity events for the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) (https://www.alamy.com/stock-photo-beckham-nspcc-party-jemma-kidd-106882170.html).

Kissinger once said, “Military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy.” Kissinger served with Epstein on the Trilateral Commission. Kissinger has also been a member of the Bilderberg Group, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Aspen Institute, and Bohemian Grove. Long thought to be an advocate for a globalist New World Order, Kissinger is a scumbag of the highest order. His connections with Gates, the Clintons, Bush Sr. and Jr., the Rockefellers, and the Rothschilds are well-documented. If anyone here has ever done any research regarding the NWO, you have undoubtedly seen Kissinger’s name several times.

They are also partners with Fusion Educational Group (now Fusion Academy), which runs a chain of private secondary schools (https://www.leedsequity.com/news/articles/leeds-equity-partners-completes-investment-in-fusion-education-group). Former teacher Kris White, now the head of Fusion Academy in Palo Alto, allegedly told a student that he was in love with her and wrote her a note saying he was “obsessed” with her. (https://www.mercurynews.com/2020/07/12/teachers-named-in-presentation-high-sex-investigation-kept-working-as-bay-area-educators-for-years/). This story was just published on July 12, 2020. Hypothetically, if one wanted to procure underage children, it would certainly help if the head of the school was on board and possibly a pedophile himself. According to this former teacher at Fusion Academy, “many students struggle with learning differences, behavioral issues, and/or addictions” (https://www.glassdoor.com/Reviews/Employee-Review-Fusion-Academy-RVW21260629.htm). In other words, the downtrodden and vulnerable. Fusion Academy refers to itself as a non-traditional school that focuses on individual students. Seems like a great opportunity. Leeds was also good friends with Epstein (https://nymag.com/nymetro/news/people/n_7912/) and has close ties to Colin Powell and Rudy Giuliani (https://nypost.com/2016/09/14/colin-powell-wont-vote-for-her-because-of-bill-clinton/).

The entries under Love’s name all say ‘Dana’ next to them. This is Courtney’s ex-boyfriend, Dana Giacchetto. Giacchetto was considered to be the “stockbroker to the stars” and was friends with JFK Jr, Leonardo DiCaprio, Johnny Depp, and many others. He ripped his clients off of millions.

2020.06.17 21:41 xX_FIIINE_DUCK_Xx HC + Nightfall Battle RP: Bandommerian Blues Pt 1

(RP: Qx’nath Acara, Location: the Sleight of Hand)
“QXNATHQXNATHQXNATH!” George slurs, running into Qx’nath’s room aboard the Sleight of Hand.
Qx’nath turns off the erotic holodrama he was watching, and replies. “Yes?”
George says zealously. “Shaves is kriffing floating.”
“Kriffing floating?”
“Kriffing floating.”
“Damn.”
“Yeah, he’s in his room, go look.”
Qx’nath scrambles out of his room and into Shaves’s. Sure enough, the ex-Jedi sits cross-legged on nothing but thin air. Objects around him such as a celebrity tabloid and undergarments float about with him in the room, swirling around his body. With Shaves’s eyes closed, Qx’nath creeps around him, perplexed by Shaves’s ability.
After Qx’nath inches around Shaves and reaches his finger out to poke his back, Shaves grumbles. “I can sense you there, Qx’nath.”
“Oh!” Qx’nath says, slightly startled himself. “Uh, want a cigar?”
Shaves opens his eyes and drops to the floor, shaking his head. “Qx’nath, Fife Spice cigars accelerate one’s mind. The whole point of meditation is to quite down and slow down.”
“There’s no time for that.” Qx’nath says crassly as he lights his own Fife Spice cigar. “Besides, if you’re thinking two times as fast as your enemies you’re probably ahead of ‘em.
(RP: Konrad Vhel, Location: Buurenaar)
Xyton sits cross-legged in his captain’s chair, contemplating the orders the pirates, who Konrad had grown to learn that Xyton hated, had given him. Currently, Buurenaar was on a short hyperspace journey to a spot in dead space just past Brandomeer. Apparently, the pirates lost control of the bridge of the Venator they were fighting over, and it got pulled out randomly. The remaining pirates on their freighters in the Venator’s hanger had managed to contact Qx’nath, who then contacted us and the CIS, who had stopped jamming coms. Konrad assumed that if the Republic wasn’t threatening Nightfall’s claim to Harleon and Brandomeer, Xyton would’ve scrapped the pirate errand all together. But the Rorepublic hadn’t done this, and so there they were.
Suddenly, Buurenaar dropped out of hyperspace, heading towards a partially crumbling Venator. Behind the Venat a whole Republic taskforce looms. To Buurenaar’s right is the pirate corvette Deathgrip, standing by as Nightfall fighters begin to scramble, knowing full well the Republic would be mobilizing fighters too.
(RP: Qx’nath Acara, Location: the Sleight of Hand)
The Sleight of Hand had just exited hyperspace at the coordinates Qx’nath’s crews had given him. Today Qx’nath and his gang would attempt to steal a Venator yet a second time. Qx’nath sends a signal through the hololink that the crews of the HC freighters on the Venator and he had managed to communicate through. The freighters in the Venator’s hanger would begin blasting the walls, as to create a diversion to draw troops and security personnel to them. Meanwhile, it was Qx’nath’s time to shine.
Qx’nath and Shaves stand decked out in vac-suits on the Sleight of Hand’s boarding ramp, ominous oxygen masks with brownish tubbing running down the suits. It was standard practice for freighters to come with enough vac-suits for the standard crew, and luckily enough the Sleight of Hand did too.
George chirps through the ship’s intercoms. “Alright boys, Imma drop you off in a second. Make sure to use those grappling hooks we jimmied on your suits. You’ll have to get out as soon as ya can, I can’t dodge these turbolasers for much longer.”
And just as George finishes speaking, the Sleight of Hand’s boarding ramp opens up, to the cold vacuum of space. Shaves uses the Force and pulls he and Qx’nath off the Sleight of Hand which then makes a speedy getaway. The two raise their armies and fire their grappling hooks at the remaining bridge on the Venator apparently called Firefly. The grappling hooks latch onto one of the side windows of the bridge (OOC: These technically aren’t grappling hooks, they’re more a device with the same grappling mechanism that uses say strong suction to hold, I just don’t know what to call that). As the two hit the window, Shaves activates his lightsaber and cuts a hole through the window (OOC: If Grievous can smash through the Invisible Hand’s bridge window with that staff in RoTS, Shaves can use a lightsaber to cut through the window on this ship). After this Shaves deactivates his grappling hook and fires it again, this time inside the bridge itself, and pulls himself in. Right before the emergency seal shuts off the window, Shaves pulls Qx’nath inside with him, using the Force.
With whatever security forces had presumably been used to retake Firefly’s bridge gone due to the distraction in the hanger, now 12 officers remained on the bridge. Just enough to handle.
Shaves uses the Force to slam shut the bridge’s door at the far end and throws his lightsaber like a Force-propelled boomerang, slicing four unexpecting officers into bits. As Shaves’s lightsaber returns to him, Qx’nath rolls out, firing stun bolts at three more officers. By the time the remaining officers raise their weapons to shoot, Shaves has his lightsaber back and begins deflecting bolts. Within a couple minutes, the skirmish is over, leaving Shaves, Qx’nath, a fuming commanding officer, and a pile of stunned and dead bodies.
The officer raises his blaster at Qx’nath, who’s now-torn vac-suit hisses. It was just now that Qx’nath realized that all the officers on the bridge too had been wearing oxygen masks, and that a thin veil of black smog clustered bellow the roof of the bridge.
“You’re lucky you two didn’t try to board Firefly without masks,” The Officer says as he stews in smog and anger. “You’d have been gassed out like the rest of your pirate friends.”
Qx’nath recognizes the stuck-up voice of the officer instantaneously. “Ah Harris, I see that since our holocall you’ve faired fine.”
“Quite alright, Qx’nath. I knew it was you boarding this ship the second I saw your blighted neon purple eyes.” Harris counters.
Shaves speaks up. “Stand down, Harris.”
“You move a muscle; I shoot your friend. I’m going to use my commlink and contact my security forces to come up here, and you’re going to let me or Qx’nath here will return to the stardust that he came from.” Harris threatens grimly.
Qx’nath chuckles. “Oh Harris, you’re hysterical! You’re going to phone for help rather than fight us yourselves. It’s quite humorous if you think about it, in the abstract, of course.”
Shaves saves no time for clever comebacks. Shaves uses the Force and hoists Harris up in the air by his windpipes. However, Harris has time to land a sloppy blaster bolt into Qx’nath’s shoulder. Shaves grits his teeth, then hurdles Harris into the wall, knocking him out.
“Are you okay, Boss?” Shaves says as he rushes over to him.
“Yeah,” Qx’nath assures as he slips off his broken vac-suit, dethatching the mask from the main section. “’Just a light wound. Now let’s get going. And take your vac-suit off, you just need the mask portion here, not like we’re facing the vacuum of space or anything.”
Shaves answers as he runs over to a command console, wasting no time to follow Qx’nath’s fashion advice and remove the lower sections of his suit. “Nope, just poisonous gas and a ship full of Republic personnel.”
“Cut it with the banter, only I get to do that.” Qx’nath returns as he begins flipping switches on another console.
And just as the pirate’s game was beginning, it ends. A bureaucratic voice moans from a holocom. “This is Senior Captain Galen Kersel of the Centurion. We saw some commotion on your bridge, Firefly. Is everything alright?”
“Alright, alright indeed.” Shaves answers sheepishly.
Galen questions. “May I speak with your commanding officer?”
Shaves looks nervously to Qx’nath. Were Qx’nath’s sexy face not a symbol of piracy and general havoc, Qx’nath would be the one talking. But, when faced with a high-ranking Republic personnel, Shaves’s awkward self would be left to do the talking.
“Well, I shouldn’t say everything is alright, Sir. Two pirates entered through one of our bridge’s windows and killed most of us, leaving me as the commanding officer. With me on the bridge is one other officer.”
“Hello!” Qx’nath calls, careful to disguise his voice just in case Galen Kersel had heard it before, Qx’nath’s voice being just as equally charming and romantic as his chiseled face.
“That must be shocking. Where are these two pirates now?” Galen’s tone turns more violent.
“They’re uh—”
Galen cuts of Shaves before he can even pull an excuse halfway out of his rear-end. “I know where these two pirates are. They’re on the bridge, for you and that other voice that was obviously a half-baked disguise attempt are the pirates. How do I know this? Well, you’re dressed in a Huttese vac-suit! You two may have resumed control of Firefly’s bridge, but we’ll have it under our control again in no time. I recommend you surrender. If you move Firefly we will fire.”
Qx’nath butts in and shoves Shaves out of the way of the holoprojector. “Hello Gallen, it is I, incredibly handsome, galaxy-renowned pirate, Qx’nath Acara. You called our bluff, but I’m here to call yours. You claim you will destroy this ship, but you forget there’s still thousand of Republic mechanics and other personnel aboard the ship. In the Hellion Collection’s first attempt to take Firefly we didn’t kill everyone. If you shoot this ship down, you’ll kill thousands.”
“That’s true, but we can always disable Firefly, Qx’nath.” Galen smirks.
Qx’nath reverses the narrative again. “You forget, I have a massive tugboat at my disposal.” As though on que, Deathgrip activate its tractor beam, beginning to pull Firefly towards the edge of the battle. As of yet Firefly’s sublight engines are still operation, however a little tug wouldn’t hurt move it along.
“You’re an odd one, Qx’nath.” Galen shakes his head.
Qx’nath retorts. “Old the wackiest of minds can outsmart old naval cogs like you, serving long past their expiration date.”
Qx’nath flicks off the holocall, then hovers over the dashboard. “Shaves, order all mechanics and personnel out of the hyperdrive generator rooms, and engine rooms. Say that we intercepted a message that Nightfall fighters are going to try disable this ship so that it can’t make a getaway. Tell them there’s only time to get to a safer part of the ship. Once they’re all a bit away, put the ship on lockdown mode. Say other pirates have boarded through droch boarding ships, and we don’t have enough manpower to fight them off. I want every hallway and every room sealed with a security blast door.”
“And if they ask any questions?”
“The mechanics and technicians shouldn’t ask much, our sublight engines aren’t even on right now, it’s just Deathgrip pulling us along. After everything’s locked down you can activate the engines to give us a lil’ push. If anyone asks about the lockdown, just say that the pirates are near their section of the ship. Those people will be locked in remember; they won’t really be able to tell if there’s actually pirates that boarded.”
After Shaves does this, Qx’nath turns Firefly’s hyperdrive back online. The ship isn’t in a safe vector to launch yet, but Qx’nath will need the hyperdirve online for later anyways. Qx’nath’s forces had locked in a course to Pho’Pheah before him, however without the technical skills of an astromech droid, Qx’nath could not program Firefly’s hyperdrive to head to Pho’Phead unstoppably. No matter, Qx’nath had the ship on lockdown, something the original crew did not put the ship under when it was being boarded by pirates the first time, because then they had enough men to attempt to fight the pirates off. Now however, their forces are dwindling.
(RP: Konrad Vhel, Location: The Battle of Bandomeer)
Nightfall fighters like Konrad’s Shereshir Interceptor zig zag across the battlefield. Republic fighters had been launched, trying to maneuver around the Venator Firefly in an attempt to get close to Deathgrip and disable it, stopping it from pulling Firefly. Luckily Shreshir Interceptors are great at well, intercepting, and along with Buurenaar they fight Republic fighters off. Buurenaar had its three tractor beams removed and replaced with three anti-starfighter point-defense lasers. In addition, the larger power generator Buurenaar housed that was normally dedicated to four extra turbolasers instead powered more point-defense laser canons. All in all, Buurenaar could pack a punch against enemy fighter-craft.
As Konrad destroys an enemy fighter, Firefly begins to move faster, it’s active engines helping Deathgrip[IS1] pull it to a safe vector where it can jump to hyperspace. Republic forces may not be raining plasma upon Firefly due to the high amount of unarmed Republic personnel onboard, but they were sure trying to go after Deathgrip. Thank goodness Deathgrip was out of range of the turbolasers of the enemy capital ships, but the Republic V-19s (OOC: Exact Republic fighters never specified, I’m assuming that’s what it is, but if not it’s just another type of fighter) aren’t much better. We can hold them off for now, but surely if this goes on for long enough Republic cruisers will move closer. Deathgrip and Firefly will just have to manuever as quick as they can…
(RP: OVER)
Wow, this was sure long.
REPUBLIC LOSSES:
4 V-19s
21 Troops aboard Firefly
NIGHTFALL LOSSES:
2 Shreshir Interceptors
HC LOSSES:
4 Freighters on Firefly

2020.05.21 03:21 iamsauwced Regarding new content/updates from the band.

•Andy posted him coding and a few character models. Maybe an interactive video game which would be new territory for the band or they are filming a video in a virtual space like inanimate sensation. It could also be nothing and just Andy trying his hand at coding.
•Galen Pehrson also posted about Stefan being apart of caged pillows and he posted caged pillows poster with banana's all over it which as you know Zachary loves his banana's.
•We also know a few months ago Nick Reinhart was at Sunset Sound recording.
Every single album release since Jenny Death has been leaked. It would be more realistic for them to randomly drop something and not even give you a date so it doesn't get leaked before release. Its not something they do side to side as Stefan has said. Either they'll keep expanding or quit making music.

Introduction
Lying to receive medical attention is not a new concept. Although it was not until the 1800s that factitious disorder was formally recognized, evidence of malingering dates back as far as Roman times. Munchausen syndrome was first described in 1951 [1], followed in 1977 by Munchausen syndrome by proxy [2]. More recently, the increasing use of the Internet to provide support for illnesses and other medical issues has introduced the concept of health-related online identity deception—Munchausen by Internet (identified in 2000) [3].
Types of Deception Regarding Health
Malingering
Malingering is defined as a deliberate behavior for a known external purpose [4]. Resnick [5] described three types of malingering: (1) pure malingering in which the individual falsifies all symptoms; (2) partial malingering in which an individual has symptoms but exaggerates the impact they have on daily life; and (3) false imputation in which the individual has valid symptoms but is dishonest as to the source of the problems. Other forms of malingering are simulation in which a person emulates symptoms of a specific disability and dissimulation in which the patient denies the existence of problems that would account for the symptoms (eg, drug abuse).
Historically, the Roman physician, Galen, presented the earliest evidence of malingering in the second century AD. One patient pretended to suffer from colic in order to avoid a public meeting and another faked a knee injury in order to remain home while his master took a long journey [6]. Causes of malingering vary. Although the malingering individual is seeking tangible gains, such as time away from work or avoiding an activity, the underlying motivation differs [3].
Malingering was widespread throughout Russia during the early 1950s because people sought to escape sanctions or coercion [7]. Russian physicians were limited by the state to only four medical dispensations. Patients were identified as: ( (1) needing medical care, ( (2) thinking they needed medical care, ( (3) faking, or ( (4) making direct pleas for medical dispensation. Low social trust is exhibited when certain ethnic groups have low trust in health care as an institution because of historical oppression and deception of their cultural group [8].
The early dependence upon doctors by poor Russian laborers has been said to have altered the doctor-patient relationship to one of mutual mistrust and deception [7]. If an individual patient trusts their doctor because the doctor has been assessed as trustworthy over time, this is an example of interpersonal trust. Recent health care literature has explored the role of patients’ trust in patient behaviors such as adhering to medical advice, malpractice litigation [9], and seeking health care services [10]. Some researchers believe that recent changes in health care practices are undermining the trust relationship between patients and physicians [11], with particular emphasis on the fact that technology is replacing the human element in medical practice thereby reducing patient’s trust in physicians [9].
Trust has been defined as a feeling (often based on inconclusive evidence) of certainty that a person or a thing will not fail [12]. There are several trust relationships. The three trust relationships relevant to this discussion are: ( (1) interpersonal trust defined as a human’s trust with another human whether face-to-face or through a device ; (2) social trust defined as a human’s trust with a system or institution; and (3) trust in automation defined as a human’s trust with technology or a device.
There are no quantifiable numbers on how many people might misuse the Internet to abuse trust relationships, but many researchers have shown how the Internet lends itself to deception [3]. People might malinger online for external incentives, such as money or gifts, but fraud is usually the principle motivation [4]. Within the medical arena, the Internet offers anonymous access to vast amounts of information on illnesses and support groups for rare diseases, opening up opportunities for people with the urge to pretend they are sick and abuse trust [13].
Factitious Disorder and Munchausen Syndrome
Factitious disorder (FD) is an umbrella category covering a group of mental disturbances in which patients intentionally feign physical or mental illness without obvious benefit. Gavin [14] first described “factitious disease” in 1843. He described soldiers and seamen who mimicked illness to incite compassion or attention. The exact incidence of FD is unknown, but studies suggest that approximately 9% of hospitalized patients on specialty services in tertiary care have FD [15]. Modern study began in 1951 with an article by Asher [1], who coined the term “Munchausen syndrome” to describe a subtype of FD. The name came from a German baron who liked to embellish stories of his military exploits to impress listeners. Subsequently, lying and Munchausen were connected in German culture [16]. A series of patients whose medical histories consisted mainly of falsehoods and who visited and deceived hospitals and doctors have been described in the medical literature [1].
People with Munchausen syndrome go to incredible lengths to appear sick or to make themselves sick. For example, a young woman surreptitiously ingested laxatives to cause diarrhea, hypokalemia, and weight loss, and another young woman feigned cancer with the help of fabricated medical records in order to receive chemotherapy [17]. Those with Munchausen syndrome who have medical training are especially convincing. Others read up on diseases so they can mimic symptoms accurately [18]. Some become so proficient that they can fool doctors into ordering needless tests and even operations in some cases. Munchausen syndrome tends to be chronic and people with it usually become habitual deceivers [19]. Savino and Fordtran [17] proposed that it was likely that many cases of factitious cancer were never discovered and predicted that with advances in computer technology the quality of forged medical records would improve in the future. This is shown by the recent case of an individual using medical images obtained from the Internet to support claims of ankle dislocation [20].
Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy and Fabricated or Induced Illness
In 1977, Munchausen syndrome by proxy (MSP)—also known as factitious disorder by proxy—was first described by Meadow [2].
One mother had poisoned her toddler with excessive quantities of salt and another mother had introduced her own blood into her baby’s urine sample. MSP refers to a parent or other adult caretaker who repeatedly seeks medical attention for their children, whose symptoms they have faked or induced, sometimes causing real harm to the child, and/or subjecting them to unnecessary investigations and interventions. Many hypotheses have been proposed to explain MSP. Some have noted that patients with the condition often present traumatic events—particularly abuse and deprivation and numerous hospitalizations in childhood—and as adults may have lacked support from family and friends. Others consider that it allows patients to feel in control as they never felt in childhood [21]. Savino and Fordtran suggested that it might represent the patient’s attempt to cope with emotional distress [17].
In the United Kingdom, MSP is now termed “fabricated or induced illness” (FII) [22], although MSP is still widely used in other countries. The British Paediatric Surveillance Unit (BPSU) carried out a study of FII cases and identified 97 cases in the United Kingdom over a two-year period. This equated to 1 child in every 5000 being affected by FII, but it is likely that this figure underestimates the true scale of the problem. Another study estimates that the number of children affected by FII could be as high as 1 in 1100 [22].
Munchausen by Internet and Munchausen by Proxy by Internet
In 1983, the case of “Joan and Alex” shocked users of a CB radio channel of the national network, CompuServe, when a male psychologist (Alex) masqueraded as a disabled woman (Joan) in an attempt to use the trust and intimacy attained in the online interactions for his own social gain [23]. In 2000, Munchausen by Internet was identified by Feldman [3] to describe an individual seeking attention by playing out a series of dramatic near-fatal illnesses and recoveries that increasingly strain credulity. A Google search for the term yields more than 7000 search results. There is also an extensive Wikipedia entry [24] that has been revised 285 times since its creation in 2007—an average of 61.5 edits per year—suggesting that the term has now comfortably entered the online vernacular of Internet users. Munchausen by Internet can have devastating effects within online discussion groups, destroying trust when the hoax is exposed [3]. The virtual communities that were created to give support, as well as general non-medical communities, often express genuine sympathy and grief for the purported victims. However, when fabrications are suspected or confirmed the ensuing discussion can create schisms, destroying some communities and altering the trusting nature of members in others.
As yet, Munchausen by Internet has not been officially recognized by the American Psychiatric Association in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV). The DSM-5 is currently in review, but makes no mention of Munchausen by Internet although FD is listed in two proposed subtypes: (1) factitious disorder imposed on self and (2) factitious disorder imposed on another. However, these entries make no reference to the Internet in the diagnoses [25]. A generic search on the DSM-5 review website for the term “Internet” locates one relevant mention in illness anxiety disorder under somatic symptom disorders, but this does not mention FD. One of the diagnostic criteria is that the person “performs related excessive behaviors (eg, checking one’s body for signs of illness, repeatedly seeking information and reassurance from the Internet or other sources)...” [26]. The DSM-5 review proposes minor modifications to factitious disorders under the umbrella of somatic symptom disorders in their own chapter. The most important modification is the elimination of the distinction between factitious disorders involving predominantly physical versus psychological symptoms. Also, factitious disorder by proxy is now termed “factitious disorder imposed on another” [25], with the perpetrator receiving the diagnosis, not the victim.
New cases of Munchausen by Internet are identified regularly. Recent examples demonstrate the versatility of using online formats for FD, including the adoption of multiple personae and the substantial time and effort expended to contrive complex and dramatic fake identities and conditions [27]. One case documented a brother-sister dyad who created an elaborate narrative to lure a woman into providing time and attention under false pretences. Elizabeth, the victim, had multiple sclerosis and was seeking online support through a social networking website hoping to connect with others coping with chronic illness [27]. In another case, after being diagnosed with a chronic illness, Helen sought to better understand her rare condition by turning to Internet resources for more information [27]. Her research led her to discover an online support community and she joined a support group designed specifically for people with her disease. Helen created a number of fake personae: “Isabelle” (Helen’s good friend), “Justin” (her boyfriend), and Justin’s father and sister to carry on the story after “Justin” passed away. Helen also fabricated two other storylines including one that featured an ailing mother who had tragically lost two children to illness. Another case concerned a 44-year-old woman who said she had been diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia. Had the documents presented by her not aroused suspicion, she would have undergone a bone marrow aspirate and chemotherapy [28].
Munchausen by Internet has also expanded to MSP on the Internet [29]. In 2009, Emily McDonald was arrested for injuring her daughter, Dakota, who had been in and out of hospital since her premature birth. When Dakota did not recover in hospital and her blood cultures showed odd results, staff became suspicious and set up a camera in her hospital room. On video, they caught McDonald putting fecal matter into Dakota’s feeding tube. McDonald’s case appeared to be MSP; however, she was also posting about her daughter and her illness on her own blog (no longer publically accessible). Although not diagnosed with MSP, she admitted to second-degree injury to a child and was sentenced to 20 years in jail [30].
Munchausen by Internet
Negative Impact from Health-Related Online Support
Debate has intensified on how the increasing use of Web technology might have a negative impact on patients, caregivers, and practitioners. For example, there can be a high ratio of false or irrelevant information compared to useful information on the Web.
Eysenbach et al [31] systematically reviewed studies of health website evaluations and found that the most frequently used quality criteria included accuracy, completeness, and technical criteria related to site design (eg, visual appeal, layout, and readability).
In their review, the authors noted that in 70% of the studies they had examined, the quality of health-related Web content was found to be low according to the authors of the reviewed studies. The incidence of false data in online self-help groups is unknown, although assumed to be high because of the absence of group rules and guidelines and few controls to prevent people from posting erroneous or off-topic information. Joinson [32] noted that the format of a childcare email list, which seemingly encouraged venting and the name calling of parents and children amidst unconditional support of other caregivers, created an environment which led to the acceptance of practices that were not child-centered and were potentially damaging to the children. This was because the legitimization of negative attitudes and approaches could have led to the continuation of these behaviors. The online “pro-anorexia” underground is a movement that supports those with anorexia and adopts an anti-recovery perspective on the disease [33]. While encouraging a non-healthy diet to sustain an anorexic lifestyle, the movement also recommends the radical use of weight-loss
pharmaceuticals—conventionally used to treat obesity—to pursue and maintain low body weight. There are similar movements in other online disease communities, such as supporters of chronic fatigue syndrome who advise abundant rest and avoidance of activity for sufferers, which is in direct opposition to medical advice [34]. Finally, the Internet may also play a major role in the development and spread of beliefs that are unsupported by scientific evidence. For example, the spread of information about Morgellons disease on the Internet has led to several cases of delusional parasitosis [35]. In response, Vila-Rodriguez and MacEwan [36] recommended in a letter to the American Journal of Psychiatry that an awareness of the capacity of the Internet to enable and spread shared delusional ideation was essential to current medical practice.
Review of Recent Munchausen by Internet Literature
We conducted a review of Munchausen by Internet literature over the previous two years by using both academic and social media sources. Searches using the term “Munchausen by Internet” were conducted on both PubMed and Google Scholar. In 2012, there were 8 published articles listed on Google Scholar, but none were relevant because they either contained citations which referred to old research or had no specific link between Munchausen syndrome and the Internet. The Technorati search engine was used in addition to search the blogosphere for recent blog postings or blogs on the terms “Munchausen by Internet” and “Munchausen” generated during the first half of 2012, but no relevant blogs or posts were identified.
Motivation
Because many instances of Munchausen by Internet take place in a group situation, social psychology offers a number of theories that can be applied to explain this type of online behavior. Drawing on disinhibition theory, Suler [37] highlighted two features of the Internet that made deception easier: ( (1) asynchronicity allows a dynamic approach to identity presentation and enables quick changes between identities and styles, and (2) the lack of feedback and the anonymity or unfamiliarity of the audience can reduce concern for others’ views.
Similarly, Taylor and MacDonald [38] applied the theories of de-individuation and social identity to explain more uninhibited behavior and more self-disclosure in some online settings. Drawing on motivations for deception and group effects, Mealy et al [39] found that lies motivated by a desire to benefit others were considered to be more acceptable than lies that primarily benefited the self. Additionally, lying to the out-group (the social group to which someone does not identify) was perceived as being more acceptable than lying to the in-group (the social group to which someone psychologically identifies themselves with as a member).
Other areas of psychology offer theories of relevance, for example those relating to self-presentation and identity. Research has shown a link between low self-esteem and the need for popularity to the way individuals manipulate relationships and the way they perceive others’ online relationships [40]. Walther [41] noted there is a propensity for disinhibition, projection, and transference, wherein there are no visual or auditory inputs that can place the text in its proper context or assist the correct interpretation of that text. People fill in the missing pieces in the picture of others they meet online, not fully aware that the picture they are forming is based partly on their own unconscious desires regarding who they want that person to be and how they want them to act. This occurs at the same time as the person is taking advantage of the anonymity inherent in text-only communications to present their best possible face. A feedback loop can arise as these selective presentations are responded to in-kind, creating a hyperpersonal aspect to Internet communications. The Hyperpersonal Model [42] proposes that the Internet affects three parts of the communication process. These can be applied to understand the way in which Munchausen by Internet users manipulate the Internet to manage impressions and also to explain how others make interpersonal impressions based on that information.
The three parts of the communication process are:
  1. Receivers who have an idealized perception of the message sender because subtle context cues take on a stronger value in online communication. An absence of face-to-face cues means that receivers may be acutely sensitive to any subtle social or personality cues, so partners build impressions of one another based upon minimal cues.
  2. Message senders have a greater opportunity to optimize their self-presentation to others and themselves.
  3. The asynchronous channel allows more time for senders and receivers to consider the messages they send and receive, so that only using text can create an idealized picture.
It is possible that some Munchausen by Internet sufferers could be driven by the simple enjoyment of online deception as highlighted by a study of Web users that found that most online deceivers felt a sense of enjoyment while engaging in online deception [43].
In 1999, a columnist was introduced in the UK newspaper, The Observer, following his aborted suicide attempt and detailing the columnist’s last few months before he killed himself [44]. After protest, it was revealed that the column was a spoof. Chris Morris, an innovative but controversial British broadcaster, wrote the columns that highlighted the inherent cruel, dark comedy of fooling gullible members of the public with stories of fake medical conditions. This willingness of broadsheet media to embrace and portray a borderline style of comedy can have unpleasant outcomes within an Internet environment. One clue might lie in the power granted by online communities to quantify the sympathy for an illness or the shock of a death through comments boxes or replies to a journal thread [13]. During a lengthy battle against terminal illness, blog writers can attract support from thousands of friends who follow them through treatments and who become emotionally involved when they die. In more than one example, bereaved online friends have created tribute websites where they have posted poetry and photographs in memorial books. This can feed the desire of a narcissist and as they create an imaginary online long-term condition leading to a fake death, can provide a lonely individual with attention that they may never have previously known. This view is supported by Feldman [3], who linked the engaging and intense nature of these deceptions to sadism. This motivation can be seen to be at both intrapersonal (sadistic) and interpersonal (attention) levels.
Stokes [45] argued that online social networks offer more methods to manage the impressions of others than are available through structured websites. He referred to a study that found Facebook users’ identities were not the identities that they had established in the offline world, nor were they close to the identities that they had constructed in other anonymous online environments. They were the hoped-for possible identities users wanted to have in the offline world, but had not yet been able to establish.
There is little research regarding the psychology of Munchausen by Internet, but there are indications that some online self-presentation may be motivated by narcissistic or sadistic tendencies, as is the case with FD. In one analysis of patients with FD, it was found that 9 patients (50%) had borderline personality disorder, 6 (33%) had narcissistic personality disorder, and only 3 patients (17%) did not demonstrate coexisting self-pathology [15]. A study of Internet dating sites by Ellison et al [46] found that people acted differently in social networking environments depending on whether or not they were interacting anonymously. This finding has important implications for understanding identity in the online world because it indicates that online self-presentation varies according to the nature of the online setting. Oltmanns [47] described narcissism as a pervasive pattern of grandiosity, a need for admiration, and an exaggerated sense of self-importance. Mehdizadeh [48] associated the term with positive self-views of agentic traits, including intelligence, physical attractiveness, and power. Central to most theoretical models of narcissism, the use of social relationships is employed to regulate narcissistic esteem. However, narcissists do not focus on interpersonal intimacy, warmth, or other positive aspects of relational outcomes. Instead, they use relationships to appear popular and successful, and they seek attractive, high-status individuals as romantic partners [49]. Despite their tendency to seek out many superficial, empty relationships, narcissists rarely pursue these commitments for long periods of time. Relationships are pursued solely when an opportunity for public glory presents itself [49].
Netiquette and Trolls
The aspect of Munchausen by Internet where individuals actively seek to disrupt and cause problems for their own satisfaction or enjoyment (sadism versus narcissism) has until now not been consciously associated with the wider phenomena of Internet “trolls.”
We believe that this connection should be formally acknowledged to assist in controlling, effectively identifying, and minimizing the growth of this behavior as more people seek reassurance and support about their health in an online environment.
Netiquette (short for “network etiquette”) is the dos and don’ts of online communication covering common courtesy online and the informal “rules of the road” of cyberspace [50].
A troll is someone who posts or sends messages online with the intention of annoying someone or disrupting a discussion or environment [51]. The practice of trolling has been compared to the fishing term in which a line is set in the water and the bait is dragged slowly back and forth in the hope of getting a bite [52].
Donath [52] outlined the ambiguity of identity in a disembodied virtual community and provided a concise overview of identity deception games, which trade on the confusion between physical and epistemic communities. Trolling has been portrayed disdainfully in mainstream media outlets, often referencing the willingness of some Internet trolls to go to extreme lengths in their attempts to elicit reactions. In 2010, the Australian government became involved after trolls defaced the Facebook tribute pages of two murdered children. The Australian Minister of Communications decried the attacks as evidence of the need for greater Internet regulation [53]. In the wake of these events, Facebook responded by strongly urging administrators to be aware of ways to ban users and remove inappropriate content from Facebook pages. It is recommended that ignoring a troll is almost always the best approach, because if nobody responds the troll will eventually get bored and go away [51]. Experienced participants in online forums know that responding tends to encourage trolls to continue disruptive postings—hence the oft-seen warning, “do not feed the troll” (DNFTT). However, experts tend to inhabit the tougher, streetwise environs of Internet technical or film forums rather than in the supportive and empathetic environment of an online health support group, which can cause more of a shock when Munchausen by Internet trolls are unmasked.
Opportunity
Recupero [54] highlighted instances of psychiatric patients engaged in impression management to influence the outcomes of psychiatric interviews [55]. Impression management also plays an important role in online conversations. Barak [56] believes that many Internet users prefer others to perceive and interact with an online persona and that material chosen to post online can help to deepen a preferred social impression. Conversely, profiles posted on social networking sites (eg, Facebook) may contain information contradicting the evaluee’s intended impression.
Photographs, perhaps artificially composed, and other material can be posted and tagged online showing a person’s name or identity without their knowledge or permission regardless of whether the person is familiar with or naïve about Internet influence. Similarly, records of negative behavior can remain online for years becoming part of an individual’s digital footprint [57].
Computers allow people with sufficient technical skills to access medical records and use them to falsify medical histories [20], while the open trusting environments of communication forums—established for the sole purpose of giving support to members facing significant health or psychological problems—are easily infiltrated because of the social nature of the groups. This is an endemic problem with online communication as the Internet helps to break down the physical barriers that assist in preventing the spread of lies [58].
The proliferation of newsgroups and chat rooms offers a limitless audience for fake narratives with people able to move from one support group to another [18]. Some, pretending to be ill, have joined more than one, and some might sign on to a single group multiple times by using different names and acting out different roles. A sock puppet is an online identity used for purposes of deception. The term, a reference to the manipulation of a hand puppet made from a sock, originally referred to a false identity assumed by a member of an Internet community who spoke to, or about, himself while pretending to be another person, but it now includes other uses of misleading online identities, such as those created to praise, defend, or support a third party [59].
The development of FD in online groups and forums is made easier by the anonymous and malleable nature of online identity along with easy access to the Internet, which allows sock puppets to thrive without any negative consequences to themselves.
For example, Andrea, a 40-year-old single mother, began posting on an ovarian cancer forum that she had concerns over her worsening abdominal pain. Shortly after joining the forum, Andrea announced that she had been diagnosed with ovarian cancer. After being confronted by suspicious group members, Andrea confessed to her deception and the use of sock puppets. In addition to playing herself during her illness and online death, she had posed as her daughter “Brittney” and her daughter’s boyfriend “Chris” [27].
Detection
Although some Munchausen by Internet perpetrators display a remarkable degree of research and endurance, able to stretch the fiction over many months, even the most dedicated can slip up eventually. Outwardly, there might not be any clues to suggest that they are anything other than normal support group members, but slight details can introduce contradictions and, although anyone caught up in the deception may be willing to forgive a slight oversight, some are more methodical. They are prepared to investigate so that few contradictions will escape over time. Savino and Fordtran [17] suggested that diagnosis of factitious cancer is usually made by detection of inconsistencies in medical history, by evidence of fabrication of medical records, by lies patients tell about their health insurance, or by doctors who begin to doubt the patient’s story. A story of prolonged survival with a usually lethal cancer has helped reveal factitious cancer in some cases.
Based on his experience with Munchausen by Internet, Feldman [3] listed some methods of detection: 1. Posts consistently duplicating material in other posts, books, or health-related websites. 2. Characteristics of the supposed illness emerging as caricatures. 3. Near-fatal bouts of illness alternating with miraculous recoveries. 4. Fantastical claims, contradicted by subsequent posts, or flatly disproved. 5. Continual dramatic events in the person's life, especially when other group members have become the focus of attention. 6. Feigned blitheness about crises that will predictably attract immediate attention. 7. Others apparently posting on behalf of the individual having identical patterns of writing. Griffiths et al [20] recommended that all clinicians question histories that did not match examination findings, ensuring that all radiographs were adequately labeled with patient-specific information, and being aware of radiographic inconsistencies.
There are several strategies commonly employed in confronting FD. In one case series, patients were carefully confronted with the factitious nature of their illness. Although 13 of the 33 (approximately 39%) admitted feigning illness, most of the patients’ illnesses improved following this strategic confrontation [15].
In most cases, group members’ discovery of Munchausen by Internet can lead to a similar strategic confrontation [3,27] with the typical response being a protest of innocence and an allegation of mistreatment by the group, followed by disappearance [3]. Due to the elusive nature of online identities, most wronged group members are unable to pursue the fakers. Many either lock their journals so that only their friends can access them, or else purge them entirely and deny the fraud. Suspicious group members are sometimes able to take screenshots as evidence of the fraud, but many perpetrators slip away, either sufficiently chastened to stop the deceptions or to simply reappear in another online group.
Effects and Consequences
The Munchausen by Internet troll can be costly in several ways. A troll can disrupt the discussion on a newsgroup, disseminate bad advice, and damage the feeling of trust in a Web community.
Furthermore, in a group that has become sensitive to trolling—where the rate of deception is high—some honest but naïve question can be quickly rejected as trolling. This can be off-putting to a new user who is immediately bombarded with accusations when venturing a first post.
Even if an accusation is unfounded, being branded as a troll can be damaging to an online reputation. Herring et al [60] discussed the difficulty inherent in monitoring trolling and maintaining freedom of speech in online communities, concluding that inevitably harassment was more likely to occur in environments where lack of censure was a key factor.
In wider discussion forums, the broadly accepted ethic of free speech may lead to tolerance of trolling behavior, further complicating the members’ efforts to maintain an open-yet-supportive discussion area, especially for sensitive topics. Reactions from Internet forums have been critical of media portrayals of trolls, stating that trolling is nothing new and has become part of accepted Internet culture. While not condoning the viciousness of troll attacks, forum discussions regularly express concern that mainstream media coverage of trolling ultimately results in more trolling because widespread attention represents the reaction that trolls seek.
However, in the insular, empathic environment of a support group, the reaction can be more severe. Grady [18] detailed the case of a 15-year-old girl who communicated with members of a virtual support group for parents of babies who were critically ill. Kim claimed to have a baby requiring treatment and as she detailed the timeline of her baby’s treatment, other members of the group became personally involved and were devastated when she said her baby had died. Subsequently, she appeared online saying she was pregnant again and that she feared the second baby would be born prematurely. After the early birth of her second baby, the same cycle was reenacted, but this time a group member (a psychologist and the mother of twins born prematurely) gradually became suspicious. She confronted Kim, who subsequently posted a confession and apology. Kim withdrew from the group and was taken off the list by its owner, but her behavior had a negative effect on a group who had been trusting and close-knit until then [18]. Some parents expressed feelings of betrayal, and many stopped posting messages. People in the group agreed to provide information so that a coordinator could verify they were really parents of premature babies. Some new participants were put off by the atmosphere of suspicion, but the group gradually bounced back. However, those who encountered Kim would obviously never view new postings in quite the same way again.
Application of the term “troll” is highly subjective. Some readers may characterize a post as trolling, whereas others might regard the same post as a legitimate discussion contribution, even if controversial. Sometimes the term is used as a strategy to discredit an opposing position by attacking its proponent.
Calling someone a troll makes assumptions about a writer’s motives. Regardless of the circumstances, controversial posts may attract a particularly strong response from those unfamiliar with the robust dialogue found in some online, rather than physical, communities. The popularity of Facebook means strangers can often build and maintain relationships entirely on the Internet.
This anonymity permits any number of lies to be accepted as truth, and inventive deceptions, with whatever motive, can be carried all the way to an online grave. However, there is also the potential danger that overzealous group members might make the erroneous assumption that every death encountered online is fake. Most social network sites now allow relatives of deceased users to choose to keep profiles online as a memorial, allowing users to post tributes and messages, sometimes speaking of the dead in the third person, sometimes in the second person. In effect, a profile site is converted into a tribute site, a space of commemoration—a sort of open-ended electronic wake [45]. In the case of a real death, it can be just as harrowing for the bereaved to read comments claiming that the death has been faked.
Savino and Fordtran [17] suggested some useful steps for confronting patients suspected of FD: 1. Let the patient know what you suspect but without outright accusation. 2. Support the suspicion with facts. 3. Provide empathetic and face-saving comments. 4. Avoid probing to uncover the patient's underlying feelings and motivations so as to minimize disruption of emotional defences that are essential to her function. 5. Assure the patient that only those who need to know will be informed of the suspicion of factitious disease. 6. Make sure the staff demonstrate continued acceptance of the patient as a person worthy of their help. 7. Encourage psychiatric help, but if the patient resists do not force the issue. However, once a perpetrator has been confronted, remaining members of the online group may need psychological help at an individual or group level depending on the extent of the deception and the health topic concerned.

2020.01.16 18:26 TimPendragon Where extctly are Mintaka, the Sheliak, Starbase 133 and more? Charting the course through TNG Season 3

Hello, all. Please bear with me, as this is going to be an extremely long post.
As I mentioned in this thread over at TrekBBS, I enjoy trying to narrow down the locations of places mentioned in Trek that haven't been covered by Geoffrey Mandel's Star Charts or Larry Nemecek's Stellar Cartography. It began back when I was a kid, interested in real astronomy, who kept hearing star names like Rigel and Deneb pop up in TOS and TNG, and wondering where all the made up stars fit in between. It eventually became a tool in keeping my writing consistent, if only for my own sake, and now, for the last decade or so, being on medication that makes writing difficult for me, it remains one of my few more creative outlets in which I can indulge with any regularity.
Oh, before I go any farther, let me say that yes, I know that stardates, warp speeds, distance and so much more are thoroughly inconsistent in Trek, and cannot be treated as absolute measurements. But as broad guidelines, they can provide a framework in which to theorize. That's all I want to do. I'm also fully on board with the "high-speed warp lanes" concept of Star Charts, as well as the assertion that there's more than one Deneb, more than one Rigel, etc, because these ideas makes sense out of a lot of things that would otherwise be irreconcilable. Of course, as with all of this, your mileage may vary.
Recently, I've been taking my boyfriend through TNG in preparation for Picard (we're almost done, and I'm relieved to say he's loving it!) and it's brought up a lot of old questions for me. In my mind, I keep coming back to "Who Watches the Watchers," because it's one of my favorite episodes. I love that we had "proto-Vulcans" for once instead of generic pre-industrial humanoids, and I've always been disappointed that we never returned there, nor was anything like that ever really done again. In any case, Mintaka being a real star, especially one in Orion's Belt, always stuck with me, too. But does Mintaka III orbit the real world star known as Mintaka, or a fictional, closer star? Star Charts says the former, and I'm inclined to agree, but there is plenty of room for debate.
As best we can tell, the real Mintaka, Delta Orionis, is pretty far out there, though I'm finding conflicting data about its distance. According to Wikipedia, and the data it references, the star is about about 1200 light-years away from Sol, even farther than the "true" Rigel, Beta Orionis, at approximately 850-900 light-years. But the Hipparcos data from 2007 indicates a distance of about 690 light-years, and I'm not sure which is more accurate. Either way, Mintaka is a long way past the main body of Federation space as presented in Star Charts' interpretation of the Trek universe. Still it is possible for Federation ships to make it out that far (even if the greater distance is accurate), and the star's remoteness may explain why Mintaka and the Mintakans haven't been brought up again.
I started looking at the episodes surrounding "Who Watches the Watchers," early in TNG's third season, to see if I could sort of "plot a course" from one to the next that made any logical sense, and possibly place other locations along the way. In doing so I went back as far as "Evolution" and as far ahead as "The Enemy."
Here's the rundown of those episodes, with locations, stardates, and Gregorian date conversions:
"Evolution" - stardate 43125.8 - February 15, 2366
The Enterprise is in the Kavis Alpha sector, previously unheard of and never seen again.
"The Ensigns of Command" - stardate unknown - date unknown
Data's mission to Tau Cygna V in the de Laure Belt, between the borders of the Federation and the Sheliak Corporate.
"The Survivors" - stardate 43152.4 - Febuary 25, 2366
The Enterprise visits the planet Rana IV in the Delta Rana system, and later departs for Starbase 133.
"Who Watches the Watchers" - stardates 43173.5 to 43174.2 - March 5, 2366
A distress call from Mintaka III sees the Enterprise traveling a significant distance at high warp at the beginning of the episode.
"The Bonding" - stardate 43198.7 - March 14, 2366
The Enterprise surveys an unnamed planet, which turns out to be the homeworld of the Koinonians.
"Booby Trap" - stardate 43205.6 - March 17, 2366
The Enterprise responds to a distress call from the Orelious IX asteroid belt, the site of an ancient battle between the Promellians and the Menthar.
"The Enemy" - stardate 43349.2 - May 8, 2366
The Enterprise is at Galorndon Core, just inside Federation space near the Romulan Neutral Zone.
From what I can find at Memory Beta, the only novel or comic involving the Enterprise-D that takes place between any of these episodes is Doomsday World. The novel involves the planet Kirlos, which might be interesting to add to this list, but as I haven't read it, and its stardate places it at practically the same time as "The Bonding" (literally the same day, if we go by standard date conversion), I'll have to ignore it for now.
It's interesting that from that seven-episode spread, apart from Tau Cygna, Mintaka and Galorndon Core, none of the other 5 locations specifically visited by the Enterprise-D that are depicted in Star Charts, and as far as I can tell, are likewise missing from Stellar Cartography. On one of the larger-scale maps in Star Charts, the former Promellian and Menthar space is seen, but Orelious IX is not specifically indicated, and the book seems to conflate it with the planet Orellius from DS9's "Paradise" by giving Orellius' star the alternate name of Orelious. More on that later.
By far, the location of most interest is Tau Cygna V, which seems fairly remote to the main body of the Federation, but still has to be close enough for an Earth colony ship to get swept off course there on its way to Septimus Minor (another location that isn't in the Charts, unless it's conflated with the Septimus system from DS9, which also seems unlikely to me). Star Charts puts Tau Cygna about 500 light-years outside the Federation core. Memory Alpha, on the other hand, currently places it at five-thousand light-years beyond Federation space, not because of an actual line in the episode but because of a line in a briefly-seen graphic display of the Treaty of Armens. The latter figure definitely seems more than a little excessive, even ridiculous, to me. Regardless, both sources put Tau Cygna coreward and to the west of UFP space, in the exact opposite direction of the rimward-and-east Mintaka, because the Sheliak species in the episode seem to be named after the real star Sheliak (aka Beta Lyrae) which lies in that direction. However, the episode itself says the Sheliak come from the Shelia system, and does not mention Beta Lyrae, which in my mind leaves it as open to interpretation as the multiple Denebs and Rigels. The Sheliak come from Shelia, and therefore could just happen to have a similar-sounding name to an ancient Earth designation for a far away star. And just to muddy the waters even more, Tau Cygna might be a misnamed real-world star Tau Cygni, which is (as far as my research can find) only about 69 light years from Sol. In any case, even if the Sheliak do come from Beta Lyrae (which is actually visited in TAS' "The Slaver Weapon"), a distance of five-thousand light-years for Tau Cygna would put it well beyond even that, and would make the fact that the Federation had to cede such a remote world to the Sheliak at all, let alone in a treaty signed a year prior to Discovery's first season, seem quite odd indeed.
So do the Sheliak come from Beta Lyrae, or just from a similarly named Shelia system? And what does that mean in regards to locating Tau Cygna? That's an open question, and even more problematic than the similar question about Mintaka.
So "Evolution" gives us Kavis Alpha, which on its own is no help, and "The Ensigns of Command" gives us Tau Cygna, and by extension Shelia and/or Beta Lyrae, which opens up even more problems. The next episode is "The Survivors" which takes place at Delta Rana, with the Enterprise leaving for Starbase 133 at the end. As I said, Delta Rana and Starbase 133 are both missing from the Charts, but thankfully the starbase is not only mentioned, but seen one more time, a year later, in "Remember Me," after which the ship departs for the likewise-unplaced Kenda II. That episode on its own doesn't really give us any more clues to its location, but the surrounding episodes might. Going by stardates, "Suddenly Human" precedes "Remember Me" by about a week, and takes place near the Talarian border, which Star Charts postulates, and most of us seem to agree, is near Cardassian space. That at least gives us a starting place. The next episode is "Legacy," and by stardates that's three weeks to a month after "Remember Me," which is probably too long a gap to be very useful. But in any case, in "Legacy," the ship is en route to Camus II before being diverted to Turkana IV. Thankfully we know the location of the Camus system, according to the Charts, is in the "southern" Federation, just on the Alpha Quadrant side of the Alpha-Beta Quadrant border, south of the Betreka Nebula, and between Cardassian and Klingon space. This tracks with "Suddenly Human," and at least keeps the ship in same very general vicinity. Turkana IV, curiously, isn't in Star Charts that I can find, but it did get put into Stellar Cartography, close enough to Camus for a distress signal diversion to be plausible.
Back to season three and "The Survivors," it's possible that Delta Rana might be the real-world star Delta Eridani (aka Rana), something speculated at Wikipedia (and which used to be theorized at Memory Alpha, though that line of thought seems to have been removed). Delta Eridani is only about 29 light-years from Sol, well within reach for a Federation colony. I'm not good enough at galactic coordinates to translate the position of the real Delta Eridani onto the maps in Star Charts, but if someone out there is so inclined, that could prove most instructive in helping narrow down the locations of both Rana IV and Starbase 133. Wherever it is, 29 light-years is reasonable enough that a diversion there shouldn't throw off a "course" between "Evolution" and "Watchers."
That's it for the episodes preceding "Who Watches the Watchers," so let's look at the episodes following, which, if Mintaka III is orbiting the real star of that name, could form a lengthy journey back to the main body of Federation space.
"The Bonding" is problematic, but only in as much as there's no data about where it takes place, beyond an unnamed planet which is home to a race known as the Koinonians. According to its stardate, the episode takes place a little over a week after the Enterprise departs Mintaka.
Next comes "Booby Trap," which gives us a lot more detail about where the Enterprise is, but not too much about where that might be in relation to anything else. They're at Orelious IX, the asteroid belt remnants of a planet destroyed more than 10,000 years before, and the site of a battle between the ancient Promellian and Menthar races. The episode's stardate places it a mere three days after "The Bonding," so either Jeremy Aster is still on board, or the ship has already been to Earth and back out again. On page 36, Star Charts places the former space of the Promellians and the Menthar coreward and west of Sol, "north" of Cardassian space. Again, I think this placement stems from conflating Orelious IX with the planet Orellius in the DS9 episode "Paradise." We can either take Star Charts as accurate, or dismiss its placement of "Booby Trap" as a confusion of two similar-sounding planets.
I would be inclined towards the latter, but for Christopher L. Bennett's novels, The Buried Age, Tower of Babel and Face of the Unknown, which all reference and expand on the history of the Promellians and the Menthar to one degree or another, and based on location presented in Star Charts, necessitate their space being relatively close to that of the First Federation. I still don't think Orellius and Orelious are necessarily the same, but if those novels are to be taken into account, they're likely in the same stellar neighborhood. Otherwise, former Promellian space might be quite a bit closer to Mintaka. But, if we do take the novels into account, then going by season three stardates, it takes about 12 days for the Enterprise to leave Mintaka, visit the Koinonian planet, and arrive at Orelious IX, somewhere between Cardassian and Ferengi space, almost due "west" of Sol, possibly visiting Earth to drop of Jeremy Aster on the way.
Compare that to 8 day time frame from leaving Delta Rana/Delta Eridani in "The Survivors," stopping by Starbase 133, and then high-warping it to Mintaka III in response to the observation team's distress signal.
That means in a span of 20 days, the Enterprise made it from Delta Eridani to Mintaka and back to relatively near-Earth space, with a stop at a starbase on the way out, and an unknown planet on the way back. Once again, I fully acknowledge that warp speeds, stardates, and distances in Trek are not reliable, absolute measurements, but even so, that's hauling some serious tail however you quantify the factors involved.
I've blathered an extremely long time in this post, and I'm not sure any of you are still with me. If you are thanks for sticking with it this long. One more bit of business before I wrap this up.
Two of the most popular fan-created maps, based on Star Charts and/or Christian Rühl's map which preceded and inspired it, depict the areas involved in this discussion, but in more-or-less opposite ways.
The Stellar Cartography site at www.startrekmap.com places Tau Cygna right at the Federation border, underneath the Talarians, and in the same vicinity as Megara and Galen on the third fold-out map in the back of Star Charts, with an arm of Sheliak territory coming right down to it. It places Kavis Alpha, Delta Rana, Orelious, and Mintaka itself all in the same area, along with the Grizella system and the theoretical Armens (as in Treaty of), apparently just because all the episodes take place back-to-back. I should also note that this site does distinguish between Orelious and Orellius. It also places a star called Shelia inside Sheliak territory, much closer than Beta Lyrae would be.
The other significant and popular fan-created map is from Star Trek: The Final Frontier at www.sttff.net, and that map is a massive expansion of Rühl's original, which of course includes info from the site author's own stories, as well as novels, comics and games (like A Final Unity). I think the map is, in general, exceptionally well-reasoned and well-designed, though I'm not always on board with its assumptions. In this case, it puts Mintaka roughly out where the real star is, but puts the Sheliak, Tau Cygna, Kavis Alpha, Koinonia, Septimus (as in Septimus Minor), Delta Rana and all that in roughly the same vicinity.
A prime example of the YMMV Principle, these two fans created maps based on the data presented in TNG, and with different assumptions they came out with vastly different results. I have great respect for both. However, personally, I don't find either completely satisfies my take on the episodes. It's convenient to have them all together on one end of Federation space or the other, but I'm not convinced its necessary.
So there we have it, all of the data I can find on these locations. What do you think? Is the Mintaka of "Who Watches the Watchers" the real star Delta Orionis, or another closer system with a similar name? Do the Sheliak come from as far away as Beta Lyrae, or from another, probably closer, Shelia system? Is Delta Rana actually Delta Eridani? Where exactly is Starbase 133? What about the Kavis Alpha sector, and by extension, the nanite colony created at the end of "Evolution"? Are all these places lumped over by Cardassian-Talarian space, or on the opposite, rimward end of the known Beta Quadrant? Or are they spread out along points in between?
Again, if you've made it this far, thanks for sticking with me and my rambling attempts to quantify a fictional reality. I'm extremely interested in what anyone thinks of all this, or if anyone even cares. :)

2019.11.24 00:59 CL0aKe Sequel Concept (EXTREMELY LONG)

WARNING: Heavy spoilers incoming for some of the events and character arcs in Fallen Order! You have been warned.
~1 year after the climactic finale of Fallen Order, Cal and the Mantis crew are now a part of Saw Gerarra's Partisans and fight side by side with them. The game opens on a sort of tutorial level, in which you jump from the Mantis (which is being pursued by TIEs) and land on the front lines of a battle between the Partisans and the Empire at an Imperial dismantling station floating above a gaseous planet (think Bespin)
Cal fights through hordes of Stormtroopers and you learn how to handle his abilities (wall run, push, pull, freeze, etc. so no need to relearn them over the course of the game) and you end up capturing the station. Saw holds a meeting and informs you that he captured this station as a means to begin his next campaign: interrupt Imperial activity on the moon of Jedha.
Saw tells you that for a while now, he has known of top-secret Imperial plans to develop a moon-sized battlestation (you know what this is, right?) through contact with long-time friend Galen Urso, the man who reluctantly developed the plans for the project. Saw claims that the Empire is harvesting Kyber Crystals (Jedha's most abundant resource) in order to power their superweapon, and that these efforts are being focused within the Holy City underneath the Temple of the Kyber.
The station the Partisans just captured is in close proximity to Jedha, and allows them to refuel before setting up base outside of the Holy City.
You then arrive on Jedha, and are forced by Saw to scout out the Catacombs of Cadera, which is a hive for a large group of Jedha raiders. You clear out the Catacombs, and the Partisans begin settling in. Saw assigns you and Merrin to a scouting mission within the Holy City so that you can gather intel that will help the Partisan's first assault on the city.
You travel into the Holy City with Merrin, who uses her Magick to disguise herself as a human as you explore the city's marketplace. You inform Saw about the Imperial presence within the city over comms, but have a force vision that leads you to the Temple of the Kyber. Merrin calls in the Partisan assault, and Saw's men (and women) start terrorizing an Imperial patrol. You tell the others of your vision and use the assault as a diversion so you can breach the Temple's perimeter and sneak in.
Inside of the Temple is a major Imperial mining/excavating operation. The Temple of the Kyber is considered one of the first Jedi temples, and the Empire is scouring the place both for Kyber Crystals and for ancient Jedi lore. The temple serves as sort of a first dungeon, similar to the Zeffo tombs in the first game. You fight off Imperials and shut down the mining equipment and reach the rear of the temple, when Cere contacts you on the comms: the Grand Inquisitor's TIE was spotted within the city.
You encounter the Grand Inquisitor, who tells you that he didn't expect to find you there, but considers your arrival a gift. You duel for a little (akin to your initial fight with SS in the original game) until the Inquisitor's lightsaber causes the floor to collapse, sending you down a slide and into a deep cavern beneath the temple.
It is within this cavern that you find a Holocron. But not a Jedi Holocron. And not a Sith Holocron either. It is crude, basic, almost rudimentary.
It seems to date back farther than the existence of both the Jedi and the Sith. You are able to activate it using the Force, and discover that the "Holocron" was created by one of Jedha's many ancient civilizations. Wanderers traveled here throughout history to seek refuge and to become closer to the Force. The civilization that created this Holocron once made contact with what they considered a divine entity. He became their god.
That entity was Darth Bane.
Long ago, after the destruction of the Sith Order and the end of the Jedi-Sith War, Darth Bane brought forth a new version of the Sith from the ashes, built around the Rule of Two. Bane travelled from planet to planet in search of an apprentice and slaughtered entire villages if he could not find a viable candidate among the population. He once came to Jedha and slaughtered dozens of the now-extinct Force-sensitive people in search of a force-sensitive child strong in the dark side. However, some on Jedha began to worship him even after his departure and built this secret shrine beneath the Kyber Temple to house their rudimentary Holocron that logged information on the elusive and powerful Sith Lord and keep it secret from those who considered the dark side a threat.
However, the Holocron you discover has two completely different libraries of information, and you are only able to access the limited information on the surface. It takes a powerful dark side Force-user to access the true information on the Holocron.
You return to the Mantis with the "Holocron" and tell the crew of your find. This is when you remember a small detail in your Force vision: the Ninth Sister lives.
You return to Kashyyyk and find Masana Tide living in isolation somewhere on the outskirts of the Shadowlands. She duels you upon your first encounter, but you are able to seize her lightsaber and force her to stand down. She takes you to her humble abode built into a massive tree, and tells you her backstory:
After Cal defeated her atop the Origin Tree a year prior, she was presumed dead by the Empire, who never searched for her. Instead of making her way back to her superiors and facing the consequences of her failure (she would have been killed by Vader upon her return) she fled into the forests of Kashyyyk and lived in isolation outside the range of the Empire's eyes.
You convince Masana Tide to open the second library of info within the Holocron, and discover that Darth Bane hid the secret to immortality within his Crypt on the Sith homeworld of Moraband (formerly Korriban) You remember the Grand Inquisitor speaking of the Emperor's plans and how the Empire will rule the Galaxy forever, and figure out that the Emperor sent the Inquisitor to Jedha to find any clue about Bane's secret so that he could live forever.
Masana Tide travels with your crew to the desolate, uninhabited Moraband, and you travel into the Valley of the Dark Lords alone to find Bane's crypt. You enter the crypt (which serves as the game's second dungeon) and make your way through Sith puzzles and fight hordes of restless Sith spirits before finding Bane's burial chamber--prepared by one of his many groups of followers across the Galaxy. Here you find a large sarcophagus that opens and reveals Bane's rotted body holding a tattered scroll written in the Old Tongue. However, taking it causes the crypt to begin to collapse and Bane's spirit awakens and fights you, lightsaber and all.
You use the Force to put Bane's spirit to rest, and return to the Mantis, having to escape the crypt moments before the entrance collapses. Cere reads the Scroll due to her knowledge of the Old Tongue, which speaks of Essence Transfer, an ancient dark side ability created millennia ago. Essence Transfer allows a user to transfer their essence into another body, essentially allowing them to live forever and cheat death.
You return to the small force of Partisans (excluding Saw Gerarra) on the dismantling station right as the Grand Inquisitor sends two Star Destroyers, the Seventh Sister, the Fifth Brother, and a bunch of Purge Troopers to destroy the station and your entire Partisan group and steal the Scroll for the Emperor. You have to fight through Imperials once again and get to the control tower to restabilize the station before it falls out of the atmosphere. However, the two Inquisitors meet you there and you duel once again before Masana Tide arrives to hold them off for you. You try to use the console to stabilize the station but the damage the station has suffered from the Imperials causes the entire thing to start to falling and burning up in the atmosphere. You and Masana are able to escape but most of the Partisans are killed.
The Inquisitors place a tracker on the Mantis before your escape, but you detect it with the Force. However, instead of destroying it, Cere has a plan to lure the Inquisitors into a trap and get them off your tail.
You head to Geonosis, which is in a state of collapse. This is about three years before the planet's sterilization, so there are still billions of Geonosians, but the Empire's occupation is causing the genocide of much of the population.
The Mantis lands near one of the old Separatist Droid Factories, and Cal fights through both Geonosian hordes and Imperial forces to get inside. Cere tells you that you need to turn the factory back on, so that when the Inquisitors arrive, they'll be swarmed by both the droids and the Geonosians still living inside.
You fight one of the Geonosian queens inside of the derelict factory, but instead of killing her, you use the Force to communicate with her and enter her mind, allowing you to convince her that you don't mean any harm and that she needs to send her army to attack the Inquisitors.
You re-activate the droid factory right as the Inquisitors arrive, and both of them are swarmed by both Geonosians and Separatist battle droids. However, the plan goes awry and the Inquisitors use brute force to make the Geonosians serve them, causing the entire insectoid army to chase you through the factory.
You have to run to the exit of the factory but are cut off by both Inquisitors over a seemingly endless chasm, as conveyor belts and machines assemble battle droids all around you. You are nearly killed during the subsequent duel when Merrin teleports herself, Cere, and Masana Tide into the factory to assist you. However, right as Cere, Merrin, and Masana Tide are getting the upper hand against the Inquisitors and the Geonosians (who are being held off singlehandedly by Merrin) the Grand Inquisitor flies his TIE through the ceiling and leaps into the arena, going straight for you and the Scroll. The Geonosians flee due to the sunlight and the explosion of the TIE after it hit the gas beneath the arena and Merrin is forced to teleport back onto the Mantis after being injured by the Seventh Sister.
Cere holds off the Seventh Sister but Masana is killed by the Fifth Brother, who tries to use the Force to pull the Scroll out of your hand as the Grand Inquisitor duels you. You embrace the Force entirely and push all three Inquisitors--and Cere--back but the Grand Inquisitor pulls the Scroll toward himself, but you pull on it as well, causing it to hover in the air between both of you. Cere fights off both other Inquisitors and you flick the scroll over the edge of the arena and it falls into the flaming gas below and is lost forever.
Greez flies the Mantis into the chamber through the ceiling and you jump on board, but Cere is killed by the Inquisitors before she can get onto the Mantis. You fly away before the Inquisitors can pull the Mantis down and head back to Jedha to join the bulk of the Partisans, mourning the loss of your two friends while also looking to the future (or something hopeful like that)
So what do you guys think? I toyed around with the idea of exploring more of the dark side this time around, since the first game was all about the light side and the Jedi Order. I also thought that it was a good time to bring in more of the Legends material, like Essence Transfer, while also going back to some familiar locales like Geonosis or Jedha. I get that Jedha, Geonosis, and Moraband are all eerily similar terrains and environments, but they could still have some unique aspects and contrasts, like the lively environment of the Holy City compared to the desolate canyons of Moraband.
Overall, the 5 planets in this game would be: -Jedha (with two maps--the Holy City and the Catacombs) -Kashyyyk (a different part of the planet than we've seen) -The Dismantling Station (could be on Bespin but they could make up a new gas planet if they wanted) -Moraband -Geonosis

2019.07.20 06:00 dsigal SWCT Reddit White Elephant Card Exchange is A Go!

And we're live!! Ok, so here is how this will work. We have 46 participants! I have randomized the list to create a turn order. I will post the turn order below and will keep it updated with which cards have been picked and how many times they've been stolen.
When it is your turn to make a pick, I will tag you in a comment below. Please respond to that comment with either the card you want to steal or if you want a random unpicked card assigned to you. You will not know what unpicked cards are available. Note. A card can only be stolen 3 times. Once it is stolen a third time it is locked into that participant! There will be a ten hour time limit, after that, I will just randomly assign you a card. If you have a card stolen, I will also tag you in a comment to let you know it's been stolen and what your new randomly assigned card is.
A couple important notes. Listen, there is a disparity in the cards available. No one was cheap. I can ensure you that everyone gave what they could afford to give and some people just chose to be very generous. That being said, some people are going to end up with nicer cards than others. Just keep in mind, coming away with a great card is not the point. The point is to generate some fun in sub. Which leads into my second point. Have fun!! Please don't be afraid to embrace the game and steal a card from someone if there is a card out there you want!! That's the fun of it! No one will get upset!

2018.09.18 09:28 Necoya Too Long, Please Read

The Emerald Grid was established in July 2016 with two goals in mind. The first was to expand our home game to bring in other people we enjoyed to play with. The second was to bring together like minded people to help facilitate strangers finding new friends and games together. Finding a game with like minded people can be tough, but a living community full of like minded players can help bridge that gap! It was expected that people would come and go as pickup games can never reach the level of detail and quality a dedicated home game can but that was okay since we’d still be here for people to socialize with.
Of course the keystone for this was to play Shadowrun! A plethora of DM/GMing resources will tell you stories and games are more cooperative and organic when people with the same playstyle come together. The all important Session 0. How the hell do you have a Session 0 with 70+ people recruited over 2 years? This is something we still struggle with and are the reason for the many rules in the Code of Conduct and social norms in Discord channels.
We started with less than 20. Now at 70+ active members we’re running into the expected conflicts of a lot of personalities and styles. Our leadership, recruitment scope, and player base has all expanded quickly in the last 3 months which has lead to a wave of shifting ideas.
First request we got was full transparency. I prefer to not post everything to avoid letting sensitive topics come to light and to keep a level of anonymity. To be upfront the Grid has never been a democracy. We started as a dictatorship and have been progressing into an oligarchy. We weigh everyone's input as it comes to us and some people have more pull than others. This is typically attributed to seniority, activity level, and shared vision. For example Ultralord has more clout around here than nearly any other member recruited in the last 2 years. He’s awesome, works hard, and brings joy to us all!
Kal/Galen are still not contacts. Prior to ~2018, I took charge of a LOT of the overall work around the wiki including contacts. We’ve been working slowly to move away from that. At end of June, my little sister died & it's been the hardest time of my life. It wasn’t a secret but I had no desire to share it across the Grid. Needless to say some Grid responsibilities have fallen behind including this and Blizzard’s contact page. A few people have offered to take on these tasks but we’ve been dealing with the current stresses which will come up below.
Prospects want to run games. We have continually run into the issue of GMs, jugglers & prospects, struggling to learn how to run proper opposition in Shadowrun. This isn’t a big concern when its a session or two as learning takes time but when it continues for years over multiple GMs that’s a lot of free money and karma. This results in 3 big concerns: bored players, powerful characters with players who don’t know basic mechanics, and defensive aversion to failure.
Imagine a D&D game where no matter what level you are you’re fighting the same grunt goblins. Then tomorrow you join another GMs table who knows how to run an encounter for a level 15 party. This GM buffs the goblins to accommodate your level and they employe teamwork! The group TKPs because you’ve never had to learn mechanics and tactics. It might be a great story but more often than not it's a less than fun experience for both sides of the table.
We’ve been brainstorming a list of required reading, maybe a GM leveling process, and other resources to help GMs learn more mechanics. Really set into motion an on-boarding process. This has been slowed for the reasons above & below. Also write your AARs. :)
IC_RP channel. We covered this in a post but I’ll do my best to elaborate to honor the request for more transparency. We generally only investigate a concern when it becomes an issue that people take the time to report in some capacity.
Kryptik (Alan) came to us about in character role play that was getting concerning. We investigated and it appears that Noaa (Erik Frankhouse) and Wi-Sapa (djtrainwreckx) were at an impasse related to IC issues. It seems Erik was using OOC knowledge from an ic source to engage in some IC rp and was not receptive for walking things back to fix the mistake. The end result of this RP was that a number of runners, according to Kryptic, looking to leave the A&W. They were going to possibly start their own sort of stable. This was concerning to G.O.D. as we have ALWAYS been Louie’s stable. The IC reddit thread is named the Ale & Wail, Louie is a free fixer, and we’ve commissioned art for the bar and Louie. The discord ic_rp used to be named ~aleandwail but was renamed after continued mistake when referencing it. To this day it has a channel topic, “Welcome to the Ale & Wail.”
This issue brought about concerns of potentially ic_rp causing a split in our community, unintentionally creating an exclusions atmosphere, and a conversation about the Grid’s focus. The above issue was settled with constructive chats but ultimately the fallout resulted in a character being retired and a demiGod stepping down. The other effect is it got the ic_rp chat into focus by the administration. We began clearly seeing the relationship gossip and high school drama that was a major divergence from the dystopian badass shadowrunners surviving in a dark world we intended. Gone were the days of evil Shedim masterminds, bug spirits, and deadly ghouls lurking in the shadows.
This has been creeping in for months with Galen & Kalbruin’s relationship, the public nature made a lot of us really uncomfortable. Dating in Shadowrun is fine. Characters with personal connections are the most compelling but many of us see it as a personal matter. Now if you weren’t around for this time, the issue wasn't a simple status up date on the Runner page or a snippet of text in a job post. Galen was blatant and frequently made public comments in Discord chats. He was nice enough to tone it down after feedback.
In contrast an example of amazing written RP for a similar scenario is Tortoise (Whit3_Raven) met a significant other & they had a baby. It was common knowledge as he’d write thoughtful posts in the A&W reddit thread. When he died it, it made his story was very touching. This carefully crafted quality RP simply cannot be met by a 24/7 chat channel. Between the incident Noaa/Wi-Sapa and the shifting culture we decided to address the ic_rp issue. We wanted to handle it with PMs, a bit of oversight, and a post. Comments from Erik and others in discord channels resulted in this going in a different direction.
Despite asking for feedback to the moderates in the chat we have yet to receive any mod message from Erik or others in favor of the current style of ic_rp chat. Since making the post people have come forward supporting the decision. So here we are. Tackling many of the same issues the Runner Hub did 2 years ago before we split off and became our own community.
Where do we go forward? Well we have a few ideas for revamping wiki to include a more decisive Mission statement that outlines our atmosphere, culture, and to set expectations. 404 had some helpful suggestions for soliciting feedback. We’re throwing around ideas of how to get the all important “Session 0” in a living campaign.
The ic_rp chat will be deleted, again. It was removed before when issues arose and I brought it back despite the reservations of other members of G.O.D. Clearly that was a mistake on my part as it has led to what is being called a schism.
N0-C made a separate Discord and a number of people have joined. We have no intention of telling people what they can and cannot do off the Grid. That Discord is not Grid official and will for all intensive purposes be a community outside of ours like any other Discord server. Things that happen there will not be held as Grid wide cannon as its an external group. Solicitation posts should not be made in any Grid channels, including media.
This post got WAY LONGER than I intended. I am leaving those caps in, Jane. ;) Thank you Flat Line, Law Man, Ambrose, and Jane for proof reading. I appreciate everyone who takes the time to read this and hope it clears up some of the uncertainty. You can provide suggestions for improvement, insight into the direction of the Grid, and other general comments below.

The Jedi are all but extinct, the Republic has fallen and in their wake, the Galactic Empire has engulfed the far reaches of the galaxy in fear.
Persecuted members of the Old Republic have been thrust into hiding. Only members of the REBEL ALLIANCE dare take a stand against the ruthless Imperial forces.

It is a period of civil war. Rebel spaceships, striking from a hidden base, hope to win their first victory against the evil Galactic Empire.
During the battle, Rebel spies are hoping to steal secret plans to the Empire's ultimate weapon, the DEATH STAR, an armored space station with enough power to destroy an entire planet, before it's too late...
