Majere sat quietly at his Chief Operations Officer’s desk. Of all the jobs he has held in the Vast Empire this was perhaps his most favorite one. He was in charge of battle planning and logistics. His first task would be making sure the Dark Jedi had their orders and were ready to depart. However, first a scouting mission must be performed and Majere was having an especially difficult time in selecting whom to send. It cannot be a Jedi Master since they are needed elsewhere. It had to be a Jedi Knight but whom would Majere send? He had a list of every single Jedi Knight but none of them possessed the qualities necessary to survive such a mission. Then he came upon Sildrin’s name, newly appointed Jedi Knight to the Vast Empire. Majere knew barely anything about her history. He had done some researches, but all he found out were some rumours and faint hints. But even these small hints made him shudder as he wondered what exactly she had gone through. One day he might ask her, but right now she trusted nobody, not even Majere. But besides her misty history, she was with no doubt capeable to do this job. But instead of selecting her he ran through the list one more time. Suddenly Majere’s office doors opened and Sildrin walked in dressed in her usual black jedi robe. With a light smile she approached him and simply sat down on his desk knowing full well Majere hated it when she did this. She loved to tease Majere and bring him to a point of madness, only to quickly bring him back in before he broke free. She crosses her long legs and grinned, “Hi there!”. Sensing Majere’s disturbed mind, her grin faded and she asked, “What’s up??” She arched questiongly her eyebrows.

Majere sighed, “I have to send someone on a very dangerous mission. One they may not return from and if they do they may not return with their mind intact.”

Sildrin spoke, “Sounds like something I can deal with.”

Majere put his head in his hands, “I….no. You won’t be going on this mission.”

Sildrin spoke this time very surprised, “What? Why not? You know I can do this job and yet you won’t send me?”

Suddenly Majere and Sildrin erupted into a major argument that lasted what seemed like hours but only about 10 minutes. Sildrin’s face was filled with fury as she growled, “What is if I just go without your permission?” Majere replied fiercly, “NO! I won’t let you go!”. Sildrin stared at him, gritting her teeth, obviously upset about his stubborn way. She brought up the last argument she knew she would win with, her voice had a cold tone, “Well, if you think I am not able to manage this mission, then I will leave the Vast Empire!” Suddenly Majere’s angry face turned white with fear, “Y-you would leave?” Suddenly Sildrin knew that she hit Majere’s main problem dead on. Sildrin took a deep breath and began to speak softy, yet with a stern look in her eyes, “Look. I know you care about me. But I want to proof my skills, I want to be a full member of the Vast Empire and not to be treated like a child. I am old and independent enough to decide for myself – and to take care of myself.” Majere took a deep breath and knew that she was right and nodded while he stared at his table. Suddenly he felt a kiss on his cheek, a bit surprised he looked up, finding himself being kissed by her on his lips. She laid a hand on his cheek, whispering, “Hey, I will take care of myself and I will be back in no time. Before you can even really miss me.” She faintly smiled and left his office.

………….
About 2 weeks later
………….

Majere stood in front of Sildrin’s returning shuttle. Something made him very worried. It wasn’t the presence that he felt, rather it was the lack of presence. Sildrin was very good at cloaking herself in the force but Majere usually could always “sense” her even without the force. As soon as the shuttle landed and the ramp lowered the ground Majere walked up the ramp. Majere entered his access code and entered into the main compartment of the shuttle and almost fainted! Majere could barely shout for the stormtrooper guards to enter and search. As soon as the stormtroopers entered one of them ran back out of the door, pulled off his helmed, and vomited on the spot. Blood and tissue was everywhere. Majere knew that a tremendous battle took place on this shuttle but thankfully he also knew that none of the dead creatures were Sildrin. Majere knelt to the ground and picked up Sildrin’s lightsaber and thought, “If she were alive she would never leave this behind her.” Then as soon as Majere was about to run out of the shuttle he found on the wall some writing in blood. It read, “William, you will leave this system alone or you will witness the personal execution of this Jedi Sildrin. Do not test me boy, none of your petty Dark Jedi are a match for the power of the ancient one!” The writings were signed with a signature older than even Majere could decipher. He frowned, running a finger over the word “William”. He muttered under his breath, “Where in the ancient’s name does this guy know my name?!”. Shaking his head, he turned around and left the shuttle. He was nearly barking his orders at the stormtroopers to clean up the shuttle as he strode back to the base. In his mind he was already making plans in what way to encounter this “ancient one”, having no intentions of leaving Sildrin and the millions of citizens alone at the mercy of this dark jedi.

Majere stood in front of the entire assembly with DJM Atrus standing next to him, “Jedi, we will be taking the VSD-II Griffen. I have loaded it with Tie Advanced starfighters and Assault Gunboats. We will be going in the system hot and heavy with Advanced Warheads and Torpedoes. After reviewing the log from Sildrin’s shuttle it was boarded by an unknown entity. After that the shuttle somehow turned itself around and headed back here for an unknown reason. Also on the shuttle we recovered some tissue from various species commonly found in this part of the galaxy. However, the tissue was recovered from body parts formed much like how I perform the Massassi ritual. I have no idea what these creatures are but I do know that this “Ancient Jedi” is very powerful if he can create a creature that is about twice as powerful as my Massassi. It seems as though he has perfected what I have sought my entire life, the secret of the Massassi. The Jedi Masters will be confronting this Ancient Jedi ourselves and the rest of you are to make sure that we reach our goals. This is our first test fighting against something very powerful and I have no intention of going in under-prepared. Master Atrus will lead this mission. He will lead both teams but will be directly leading team one which will consist of our Sith Order. Team two will be lead by Master Paan who will be leading the second team filled with the members of our Krath. We will all communicate via the force, which is very strong in this system. Once we have reached this Ancient Jedi all of the Masters will battle it while the Jedi Knights will take care of its escorts. My personal mission will be of one that will recover Sildrin but my primary task will be to help destroy this Ancient Jedi once you find his stronghold. Get ready brethren and may the darkside be with us.”

………………..
Days Later
Location: Shykar System, Orbiting Planet Lopen
……………….

In the darkest hour of the night two bright flashes could be seen falling from space. In minutes two shuttles landed in what was once a green park but now destroyed due to neglect. Three very powerful Jedi Masters slowly walked off of the platform followed by numerous other Dark Jedi. Master Atrus, Master Paan, and Master Majere had their lightsabers ignited as they took a quick scan of the surrounding territory. Master Paan was the first to speak, “The Dark Side is strong here. I can sense a tremendous amount of pain and fear. This will not be easy my friends.” Majere slightly nodded to Paan as Master Atrus’ team, along with Master Majere, headed towards downtown and Master Paans team left for the outskirts of the capitol.

---- Planet Lopen ----

Athran strode out of the shuttle with a smile on his face awaiting a challenge that would be worthy of the Vast Empire’s Elite Dark Jedi. Immediately, his smile faded, turning to a sullen look of fear and ardor. He saw nothing, but his fellow Dark Jedi, the earth was charred immensely, the smell of a slaughter house filled every breathe you took, the air rising around you had a red tint to it, and there was no light only dark. The immense presence of the Dark Side flowed through you more constant than your own blood, almost consuming your being, causing you to lose yourself.

Athran glanced at the other Dark Jedi Knights, their eyes too were lost in thought. None of them had ever experienced such a peril in their service to the dark side. The feeling of overconfidence they all had quickly faded to fear. All of the Dark Jedi quickly formed into their respective groups. The Dark Jedi Masters swiftly exited to accomplish the mission at hand.

Paan quickly set a rapid stride to arrive at the outskirts of the capitol. All of the Jedi focused their senses, concentrating on the force, and trying to ignore the occasional mutilated corpse lying in the distance from their path. After a few kilometers on their journey, a few of the Dark Jedi Knights began to ease in tension. They had not seen a single thing that was a threat to them thus far, other than the blood and corpses dispursed all over the earth, which brought back some of their confidence, but glancing at Paan’s distraught face, you could tell the worse was yet to come.

Talon's grip never eased from his two sabers as he followed DJM Paan. Even though they had yet to encounter anything that was still living he could not shake the sense of dread. This was not going to be an easy fight, even for the Dark Jedi Masters.

He had been told about Sildrin being captured, but he wasn't sure how much of the story was truth as he was told by a 3rd source. He had heard something about lots of blood everywhere and some muscle tissue... Na, that couldn't be right.

Talon's thoughts were put on hold as the whole group of Dark Jedi stopped. Talon almost plowed into the back of Athran, but he caught himself in time. Looking over at Paan, Talon saw him deep in thought, searching for something. Paan shook his head and the team started moving once again.

As DJM Paan and the rest of the Krath Order were walking they suddenly felt a very strong presence move very quickly away from them. Paan quickly haulted his team after he sensed the presence and continued to search all around him. As the presence went away he signaled for his team to continue along the path.

After another hour of tiresome walking and finding nothing the team started to relax their defenses. They turned around the corner on their way to what appears to be a resturant when they were stopped by a huge and massive beast. Paan quickly took a defensive position as did the rest of his team. Although he could sense an immense amount of power within this beast he knew that he could easily defeat it. The beast roared in fury that would have sent a non force user runing for their life. As it was the DJK's were tense as they quickly rose their defenses as well. Suddenly 8 more of these beasts dropped from the building above surrounding the Krath team. The Krath formed a small circle back to back and prepared for the upcoming battle.

DJK Talon took it upon his duty to study these beasts in hopes of finding a weakness. They were pure muscle, about 8 feet tall. Blue and black in color with no 2 beasts looking the same. They had a huge mouth with large yellow teeth and he sensed their saliva was some sort of poison that he had heard about. Perhaps Sith poison? Talon wasn't sure and he knew that he did not want to find out. The beasts arms were the size of Talons legs put together which meant that his legs were even larger. Talon had seen the huge red Massassi Beasts that Majere kept around and these things were twice their size, although they looked the same in features. The beasts finger nails looked like daggers thrust into each finger. The beasts eyes were pure black. The roar of the beast was almost as loud and chilling as force scream. Talon gave a silent thanks to Majere for using force scream often. He didn't like the pain that he was going through but at least Talon knew how to protect himself from the effects now. As Talon tried to use his abilities on the monster he quickly realized that nothing works on them. The only way to kill these beasts was hand to hand melee and this is what these Massassi Beasts were made for. Talon knew that if he were to live, that he would have to use his mind more than the force. Talons ability in the force would be needed, but it was his tactical thinking that will allow him to live long enough to report this fight. As Talon continued his search for a possible weakness he got a message from Master Paan, "There are no weaknesses. In order for us to live we need to work as a team. I want all the Jedi Knights to keep them busy while I fight these one on one. More than one and I will be defeated and all of you will die. So I am counting on each and every one of you to do your part, keep them busy, and stay alive. I am going to have to kill these things the hard way."

As the nine Massassi Beasts slowly walked toward their prey the Krath Jedi stood their ground.

As he finished the message, Paan ignited both blades of his lightstaff, its two green blades shining brightly. He'd certainly grown much in power since his promotion to DJM, but Massassi were nothing to toy with. Khyron and Sirrus would be a picnic compared to even one of these things.

"Team, do what you can to keep them off of me. I will need to fight them one by one."

Paan took on the first of the Massassi warriors, who swiped at him with his claw. Paan backflipped over the swiping claw and sliced the right hand of the warrior off. Paan was not surprised when the beast kept on fighting as though the injury had not phased it. As long as it was using its arms, the beast seemed to somehow be immune to the immense heat of a lightsaber blade. Perhaps I'll have to use a force power for this...Paan thought

Atrus lit a flare by hitting it against the wall, then looked back at the rest of the team as they followed suit then after everyone was prepared he entered the abandoned building in the downtown district of this ghost town, searching for clues. Closely he was followed by Master Majere and Sith Guardian Exar Kun. He could sense fear from a lot of the Jedi behind him. Most of them having never been in such peril in their lives, only the Masters having ever come close to having such a life threatening mission, and even those missions didn't come close to the danger of this one. All the Jedi could all sense the eminse Force presence on this planet, there was a strong disturbance here.

Atrus looked to his side to Majere, and they silently communicated, while keeping others out of listiening. Then simutaniousely they nodded then the team started to move further into the corridor.

Atrus sent out orders to all the Sith, tellin them to split off into pairs to examine the rooms in the hallway, to notify him and Master Majere at once through the Force.

Atrus and Majere silently crept down to the last room in the corridor, before entering Atrus spilt his lightstaff into the two sabres, and ignited them. Majere then ignited his smoke grey blade. Then, they entered....

Paan figured if he could find some way to distract the Massassi from its concentration upon immunity to heat, he might be able to start doing some damage to them. Paan's idea worked to some degree. Being a Master, Paan could keep up affect mind long enough for him to distract the Massassi warrior to put his arms down and get a couple good fatal swipes in. However, Paan could sense no one else in his group who could keep it up long enough to cause as much damage as he could. Even so, he had probably found the way and could alert the other Masters.

"Atrus, Caramon, I've found a way past their defenses. Use affect mind on them and get them to drop their arms. You should be able to get enough cuts in there to kill them. Just be careful they don't swipe you." Paan said, gripping his arm.

"Right, will do, Paan." Atrus' retort came.

Paan knew that this would still take awhile, but at least perhaps he'd figured out a somewhat effective, if temporary way to deal with these beasts. Paan could sense that the Massassi warriors were as cunning as they were strong, and it would not take them long, he figured, to find a way to counteract the affect mind technique. After all, Paan thought, they were made by a Dark Jedi.

TJ carefully turned into a small room. With his lightsabre ignited, he would have felt a lot more security in any other situation...but not today. The emptiness and the concern he had noticed on some of the more experienced Dark Jedi had taken that away.

Looking around noticed nothing out of the ordinary, a couple chairs, dust covered table and a couple boxes in the corner.

Wavung his partner over, TJ cautiously cut off the lid of the box.....once again nothing out of the ordinary as he dug through the contents. One holding gross, moldy food supplies the other, a pile of sheets. Taking one last look around, they left the room...

Atrus and Majere continued searching the large grand hall that they were in, while receiving telepathic reports from a few of the pairs of Jedi. Mostly just small native predatorial creatures, which were taken care of quickly enough.

Majere was walking to the doorway then suddenly stopped, at the same moment across the room, Atrus snapped his head up from what he was looking through. Something strong was around... They sensed it. They looked to each other... Majere spoke first, telepathically.

"I sense 3, maybe 4... Large... 4-legged."

Atrus responded, "Very swift, and agile... Moving this way, 3 o'clock, 50 metres away..."

They moved closer together to cover each other and braced for the attack... They came out of the shadows, black as night. They crawled along on four legs, and had long sickly tongues swearving around, searching for their prey. Caramon could tell that these creatures were made by a being very very strong in the Dark Side arts, surpassing the power of purhaps even all the DJO combined.

The four creatures that came at them were very swift and agile, hard to track with the naked eye. They had eyes that glowed bright crimson red... Sith Red. On their spines were a row of long sharpe, needle like spikes. They had claws on their hands that were as long or longer than an average grown mans forearm. They had a long tail that appeared to have a lot of muscle in it's swing, probaly able to knock even a wookie clear across the room.

They smelled of decaying flesh. The rotting smell of human meat fresh on their breath. Their teeth we're as yellow as that strange fruit juice that some of the newer trainees seemed to enjoy so much. You could visably see peices of red flesh and white bone contrasting in between their long needle like, triple-rowed set of teeth.

The Jedi 'Nix' Hexum and Caramon Majere assumed combat positions, sensing with the Force the moves of the creatures, they closed their eyes and concentrated in the darkness, focusing on the movements of these new enemies.

Exar Kun rounded a corner with the hilt of his lightsabre held loosly in his palm. The un-activated cylondor was set to active with the slightest twitch of his thumb. The black cloak Exar normally wore hung loosly off his body, swaying back and forth with his steps. The empty corridors of the old building seemed to taunt Exar be sending a mocking echo after everyone of his steps. Following closly behind Exar SiriusV stalked. Both Jedi ready for action. Two sepreate rooms on the left and right of the large hall way led Sirius and Exar on their solo ways to investigate.

Exar's lips slightly tightend against his mouth as he slowly crept into the room oppiste Sirius. The room had an eire dim light that glowed through it like the moon at night. Exar slowly swivled his head to the left, noticing sevreal dust coverd chairs and empty book shelves. He then swung his head back the other direction. His heart let out a scream of fear that was quickly silenced by Exar's basic control of fear. Seated sevreal yards away was a figure completly swallowed by a black cloack, and the light the filled the room seemed as if comming from him. The figure reached his hand down and in a swift motion brought to life a dazzingly green blade of light.

Exar's thumb flicked the control on the hilt of his weapon, and an angrey red beam poured from the mouth. The two dark figures begain to circle each other both prepared to engage any second. Exar was confused that he could not pick up any signle in the Force that gave any clue the dark figure was infront of him. It was as if his life pressence was not in him.

Like any Sith Exar was quickly loosing patience, and eager to begin the battle. He flinched his right leg forward causeing the figure to react than Exar came crashing down with a powerful high to low strike. Exar used the Force to propel him making the strike un-humanlike powerful. The cloaked enemy expertly deflected the blow and hoped backward, as if not wanting to engage. The corner of Exar's lip twisted into a tiny smile as he asumed a defencive low stance, pulling his sabre back behind him, directly over his back leg. Agian Exar summond the Force around him than in a perfect motion glided his blade though the air and clashed it with his foe's blade. Sparks sprayed into the air as Exar finished his attack with a left-to right strike. Exar's blade hummend through the air and passed thgough his enemy like an oar through water. The dark figure's empty cloak fell to the ground with a soft pat. Exar bowed his eye brows in comfusion. The empty cloak layed on the groun infront of him. Knowing it wasnt his place to plan the next move Exar called out through "MASTER ATRUS! I HAVE FOUND SOMTHING!"

Tylen Jaap, apprentice to Caramon Majere, walked slowly behind the two Dark Jedi Masters. Tylen could now sence the dark creatures coming closer and closer, which stopped him in his tracks. He could sence these being much more powerful then he and could not help the Dark Jedi Master and would only get in the way. He would not be able to take on what lies ahead with what skills he has and because of his young age and not enough training, has not made himself a lightsaber.

Tylen, realizing his position decided he need to be somewhere besides here. Using the force, he spoke to his Master. "Master, this isn't the place for me...I must step back" Majere replied, "Good, your fear is getting the best of you. So be it, get to a spot you can watch, and pay close attention, for in a few years you'll be the one out here. If anything happens to back to the others and we'll met you there."

With that, Tylen took a few steps back and relized that the beasts where much closer than he originally though, he had no time to lose. He looked around for a moment and relized that right to the side of them just a few yards a way where towering crates. He ran as fast as the force would allow and jumped into the air. He flew, 50 ft to the top of the crates and quickly layed down, just as the Beasts turned the corner. The Dark Jedi's Lightsabers ignited at the same time. And the battle began...

Paan cut down one more Massassi before the remaining six had figured out his strategy. Paan could, he figured, try to reach out to the others with the force, but he wasn't sure that the Massassi couldn't block the signal. Paan supposed he would just have to strike as fast and as hard as he could so that the beast couldn't react in time. Another Massassi walked up to Paan. Instinctively, Paan once again jumped over the constant claw swipes, and when he could, struck blows into the gut of the beast. This is going to take quite awhile my friends, stay sharp. Paan couldn't know if that message had gotten through, but he had more important things to think about for now.

---In the room opposite XK---

SiriusV stepped into the room full of suspicion. Suspicion, mixed with fear, anicipation, and a little drop of joy. It had been long since he was engaged in a fight anyway. But he knew that this was serious, and it might take all his powers and will to get through this even alive.

He glaced around, picking up certain things that normal people without the Force wouldnt have noticed. Death...previous images...suddenly he heard XK's call to Atrus.

'Found something?'

SiriusV walked out of the room, without realising that a hideous monster had just formed at the wall and was starting to aim at him....

Suddenly SiriusV didnt feel right. He spun around and saw a towering 2.5 m tall monster in front of him. Taking him down, SIriusV muttered 'Ok, a bunch of muscles plus a slight Force power to cloak himself. This is it...'

SiriusV summoned his lightsabre from his hips and the lightsabre flew to his han, igniting as it came. SIriusV stepped into his classical fist position, neither attacking or defensive. He waited his opponent to come towards him. Suddenly the monster charged, shaking the floor with each step it took. SiriusV swung out his bazing-red sword, aiming for the eyes. The monster charged and crashed into the lightsabre. it howled and blood spilled out of his sides. SiriusV relaxed.

He was about to swing again when he stopped in horror. The monster had recovered from his wounds and isusing the Force to absrob energy from all things in the room, including him....

'DJs! I FOUND AND INCREDIBLE CREATURE WITH THE POWER TO HEEL AND ABSORB ENEGY THROUGH THE FORCE!'

In the meantime, SIriusV raised his lightsabre again, preparing to fight to his death if everyone else is occupied....the monster intruiged him.

He gave a smile of pure evil. Relentlessly tapping his foot, he waited for the monster to make the first move....

(I had intended to write a lot more, but something came up, do w/ it as you wish )
---- Planet Lopen: Krath Location ----

Back to back the Dark Jedi Knights struggled to hold off the beasts that were attacking them. They were surrounded by an encirclement of the horrid creatures, each swinging their razor like claws trying to slice a ‘chunk’ of a Jedi. Five of the beasts swung each gigantic paw at once, crushing down upon the jedi’s sabers. The claws that struck the sabers immediately regenerated as the beasts retracted and then extended their claws once more.

Sensing the message that Paan had sent a newly trained Dark Jedi looked over where Paan was, immediately a razor sharp paw swung at him, he rolled, the beast missed. The other paw came down slicing at young Jedi’s torso. Stunned by the site of the massive beast swinging its gargantuan arms, the jedi instinctively blocked, but not before the beast caught him in the rib. The pain surged through him, he screamed the most horrible sound that Athran had heard, ever. Athran saw the creature swing once again at the Jedi, slicing into the bone of his leg. The Jedi lay there, stunned, by the intense pain and the beast hovering over him. The beast crouched down next to the Jedi, and sunk its teeth into the Jedi. Immediately the Jedi went into what seemed to be a most unfortunate death, his eyes grew into a deep black, his limbs seemed to instantaneously degenerate, he was but a bag of bones and skin, his breathing ceased. While the Jedi died, the monster began to grow, twice its already towering height, it muscles began to grow, it seemed to double in strength from the pain it inflicted upon the young Jedi.

Athran quickly looked away and blocked the next swing that came from the monstrous beast in front of him…. He glanced once more at the beast feeding off of the Jedi.

In all his life as Jedi, Gui Sun Paan had never faced anything like this. He could now truly see the reason why the cave on Dagobah where Luke Skywalker faced himself, was so strong. Massassi were the most powerful beings he'd ever encountered. Even for a Dark Jedi Master nearly three times as powerful as Khyron, and probably about five times as powerful as Darth Vader, it was an immense challenge. By now Paan had figured out the Massassi couldn't jam his transmissions through the force. All they could do was absorb any force power directed at them. That was how, Paan guessed, that they were able to block lightsaber cuts because of this. At least as long as they were concentrating. Paan hid in a corner and felt safe at least for the moment. The others followed him.

"Atrus, this is Paan. My technique failed after two of them went down. They're smart, and they seem to be able adapt to anything you throw at them. We may have to defeat them using their own game against them." Paan said.

"I concur, Paan. I'm open to suggestions if you've got any." Atrus seemed more cautious then usual.

"Well... we know we can't use the force on them directly, but it may be possible to confuse them. As far as I can tell, they can't block any power unless it's directed to them specifically, therefore, they cannot block force mind transmissions or perhaps doppleganger, since those aren't an offensive or defensive power. They can however, get through force shield, and can effectively neutralize anything directed at them, including Destruction waves, and lightning." Paan waited paitiently for Atrus' next answer.

"Do what you can, Paan. If you learn anything new about these things, let me know." Atrus said. Paan didn't have time to say a word in response, because the Massassi had found him and his colleagues.

"EVERYONE! STAND BACK!" Paan said abruptly. Paan used Doppleganger and created a copy of himself. The Massassi seemed as though they were unable to block him from doing this, so he had his double fight one while he fought another. This, however, did not solve the main problem of getting around the immense healing abilities, or the ability to block out offensive force powers that the beasts had. This was going to take far longer than Paan had originally expected and perhaps someone might be killed or seriously wounded, himself included.

TJ had heard many of the Dark Jedi's thoughts as they encountered the beasts. For some reason he had yet to see one. As he entered a small storage bay, all that changed as two creatures began to advance as well as a third from behid him, blocking his escape.

'Uh-oh'

Dahsing as far way from them as he could, TJ looked at his surroundings. Suddenly, he noticed a small switch connected to a rope, which was connected to a rather large cutting tool. TJ's thought was suddenly brought back to the creatures as the first two leaped onto a small platform, that had seperated them from TJ.

He looked around, the switches were all around the room. TJ focused all his concentration on the closest one...the switch clicked and and released the cutter. TJ repeated the process until all but one had been flipped. TJ now saw small box...force throwing it at the last switch. It clicked and TJ watched as the many cutters swung down, over the platform. The first one made contact, stabbing into the creatures side. The rest followed, slicing the two creatures to small bits...one to go.....

Atrus side stepped as one of hte creatures took a lung at him, then swiped with one of his sabres. Slicing off the tip of his bony tail. It roared in pain while it's eyes started glowing with an icy fire. Atrus backed up from another lung and barely missed bumping into Majere's back. They stood in combat stance back to back, with the four hideous creatures circling them.

The two Masters communicated their battle plan through the Force constantly. With a solemn nod they both lept up in the air with a speed that no naked eye could detect. Majere flipped while in mid-air and brought his grey-bladed sabre down through the head of one of the beasts, while at the same time driving one of the spines through his left claf muscle. As blood poured from the wound, the pain just made Caramon's power grow even more.

Meanwhile Atrus came down from his land kicking another creature in the head, flipps up off and landing on his back in the floor then jabbed a sabre this it's side then bringing it up, slicing the creature in half. 2 down, 2 to go.

Majere limped back to regroup with Atrus while putting the Force to use to heal his leg. After a few moments the wound was sealed and he had full mobility again.

The duo kept dodging from and swiping at the creatures for what seemed like to them hours... Atrus half way through the battle sensed a 'yelp' in the Force. It came from DJK Tj.

The pair continued their battle. A few moments later one of the creatures took a bite at Atrus and sunk it's teeth into his arm. Majere turned around quickly and slice its head off. With the creature's head still dangling from his arm, Atrus shook it off, then healed himself. Nix locked together his two blades into the lightstaff form and stepped forward with majere to battle the creature. They broke off with inhuman speed, surrounding the creature then started circling it. With the creature knowing it was trapped it started getting very agitated, and started hissing.

The two Masters moved in on it like vultures, but then next thing that they knew they were both swept off their feet and knocked against the wall by a giant creature. It looked just like the other's that they have been fighting, except 10 times as big and 10 times as ugly.

Paan ignited both blades of his lightstaff and spun it over his head. Once the blades were in a controlled spin, Paan cut a nearby Massassi in half. The Massassi couldn't heal from that but neither could Paan keep spinning his saber blades without endangering his friends. Paan stopped the spin and flipped backward slicing another Massassi in two clean halves. Two down, two to go.

Majere's vision was blacking out as he tried to remain consious. The pain from being slammed into a nearby wall from a huge monster seemed overwhelming even for a Dark Jedi Master. Majere entered into a defensive position and as the monster took a swing at him Majere easily dodged it and sliced off a chunk of the creatures arm. As the blood splattered it went right through Majere's crimson red robe just as if it wasnt even there, "Uh oh, not only is this guy big, he has acid for blood." Majere sent a quick battle tactic to Atrus just as he shook off the dizzying affects from being slammed into a wall.

Krath Battle

Paan seemed to be doing very well now that he was getting used to the Massassi creatures battle tactics. Now that he was down to 2 this battle would soon be over and he can continue his search for the source of this immense power. Paan could only "hope" that these Massassi were the toughest creatures around. Otherwise his team, minus 2 Jedi due to being killed by Massassi Warriors, would perish. Paan send a quick thought to his remaining team, "Okay. You guys take care of one and I will take care of the other. Should be easy enough for you, just stay back and hack and slash. Dont bother with the force, just use your lightsaber training and if you get hit use the force to heal yourself. We are almost done with this skirmish."

Majere suddenly grinned from ear to ear at the hideous monster that stood before him. As quickly as Majere stood up he was gone, using the force power translocation he teleported himself in the chamber that kept his lovely Sildrin in her dark prizon. Although she was still unconsious he picked her up and translocated out of the prison and....perhaps never to be seen again.

Paan cut down the second to last Massassi fairly easily, but not without suffering a rather nasty gash in his right arm. The beast made one final slash before Paan could finish cutting it into 4 equal sections with the precision of a surgeon. Fortunately for Paan, he was immune to the Sith Poison. He used the force to detect the progress of the others and found they had managed to defeat the other Masssassi. So... the battle was over, for now. Paan heard a voice calling to him from the force. It was Majere.
I have Sildrin, we must move quickly and get ourselves out of here. We may have finished with these guys for now, but I sense we don't have a lot of time before they regroup. Paan sent a message of acknowledgement to Majere, and then promptly gathered his team. It was time to leave, if they could.

TJ waited patiently as the last massassi advanced...waiting to see what it did for a first move. TJ became more and more ready to move with every step the creature took. He would have to act fast if he wanted to live through this encounter.

TJ was now against the wall, the beast still advancing. Suddenly, something went crashing into the wall just to the left of TJ, but on the other side. It left a huge dent, as TJ listened to it's claws pull it out.

The disruption had thrown TJ off guardand next thing he knew, the beast had made a slight charge at him. He was never going to defeat this monter with his sabre...not with his lack of experience and skill. He had to outsmart it, like he did the others.....

..........................
Just before Majere's disappearance
..........................

Tylen Jaap sat at the top of the crate looking down at the Jedi Masters battled it out with the beasts. He watched as the two dark jedi Masters jumped into the air and landed on top of the creature. The creature struggled, but then got the best of the two Masters. The creature launched his arms upward, and the two Masters were slammed into a wall and fell to the floor. Atrus jumped up immediately and went back after the monster. Majere however did not, he sat there looking at the ground as if something bad had happened. Tylen could hear his master talking to him.

" Tylen... I must leave... you have been a good apprentice, for what little time we had... take care of yourself."

"Yes Master" Tylen replied as Majere leaped up, and with the blink of an eye he was out of sight.

Tylen look toward the sky and took a deep breath. " I can't believe this is happening...what am I going to do now," he said as he looked down toward Atrus, struggling with the beasts. Tylen shut his eyes and took a few deep breaths. He slowly opened his eyes and look toward the sky again, wondering what to do. "Yes Master..."

Tylen stood up. Under his cloak, he reached around to his back and slowly pulled out a small lightsaber. He looked at it as it brought back memories of his past. The lightsaber was given to him from a jedi master back on Corusant from his ealier days as a light jedi. It was believed to be the lightsaber of his grandfathers, before he died. Tylen had managed to keep it hidden from the Dark Jedi Masters, for if they knew about it, Tylen feared that they would have it destroyed.

He ignited it, and out flashed a brilliant light blue colored lightsaber. He looked down at Atrus, still defending himself from the beasts. "Master Atrus, I'm coming..."

"Tylen....Hurry...."

Tylen jumped down the 50ft to the bottom and with force speed, he meet up with Atrus. Together...they would take on the beasts.

---------------------------------------------

As Trigit walked toward nothing in particular, he wondered why he somehow was without a partner. It really didnt matter, as he had yet to see anything suspecious. He then walked into a room in which he felt two familiar presences, and he saw Atrus and Tylen fighting many creatures. Knowing that Tylen wasnt the best of Jedi, as he was an apprentice to Majere, of whom Trigit had niether seen nor felt anything of. He said aloud, "Am I too late Master Atrus?"

Atrus replied "Not at all, quite the contrary, you are right on time."

"Glad to hear it." came Trigit's reply. With that, he ignited his lightstaff and sharged at a creature that was about to strike Atrus from behind. The creature saw him comeing, but it was too late. Spinning as he jumped, he sliced the creature neatly in 2 all the way down it's body. As the creature fell apart, Trigit smiled. This was going to be fun.

The beast continued it's charge at TJ. TJ jumped as high as he possibly as he could just as the beast arrived and the beast was instead met with the metal wall.

Knowing he was as good as dead unless he found something to grab onto, TJ searched rapidly. Then in the corner of his eye TJ noticed a small hatch in the room's ceiling.

Grabbing a handle that sat beside the hatch, TJ wondered how he was going to get on the other side of it. The controls were a good three metres away. While trying to figure out how to get it open, TJ watched as the beast dug it's claws into the metal wall and began to climb up...TJ didn't have much time.

TJ focused all of his concentration on the controls, they suddenly exploded and the hatch slid open. TJ swung up and into a small passageway and watched as the hatch closed just as the beast arrived.

'Strange," TJ thought,"I didn't do anything'....

{OOC} This should liven things up a bit for the DJ {/OOC}

Knowing that batting back and forth with the Massassi would only get more Dark Jedi killed, Talon took a chance and charged one of the beasts. Taken back by the strange outburst from what seemed to have been a cornered foe, the Massassi could not react in time. One of the black blades to Talon's lightsabers cut the Massassi warrior's head clean off and dropped it like a ton of bricks. Talon hopped back quickly to enter the cover of his Dark Brothers, but was caught in mid air by one of the beasts. With the back of its huge hand the Massassi swatted Talon away like a gnat.

Dark Jedi Knight Athran watched as Talon's limp body soared through the air and came down in a pile... was that a crack he heard? It could have been rocks on his armor, but Talon wasn't moving. The chest plate was hanging from him by thin strips of cloth and he was bleeding heavily. Both lightsabers were held tightly in his hands. After a minute they shut off and Athran could have sworn he heard Talon groan. He looked back in front of him in time to swat away the arm of a Massassi. He looked back and Talon was on his feet. The huge gashes in his chest had stopped bleeding some how and now his eyes seemed to be black, but glowing.

Talon darted strait at the Massassi that had swatted him aside like a rag doll and tackled it. The warrior screamed (both of them), and finally after both sides had stopped to watch in disbelief, Talon stood up with blood running down his chin and neck... he had killed the Massassi with his teeth!

Athran looked back over to where Talon had been and saw that he had left his sabers behind. Jumping forward and batting away a Massassi that was too close for comfort, Athran said, "Get back in the group Talon. Now!" After fending off the Massassi momentarily, Athran looked over to where Talon was standing... ready to pounce on Athran like a cat on an unsuspecting bird. Athran quickly jumped back into the group, but Talon was not easily persuaded to stay away.

By this time, Paan had finished cutting down another Massassi and had enough time to see what was going on. He sent soothing thoughts to Talon's mind and found no resistance what so ever. Surprised, but not wanting to think about it too much, he commanded Talon to move away from the fight, and he obeyed like a puppet.

One of the higher Dark Jedi caught onto this and said, "Check this out, guys." as he forced Talon to do a jig. Talon quickly stopped as the Jedi was backhanded by a DJK.

Athran looked back over to where Talon was and saw that he was sitting with his legs folded under him like a little child. He sighed and shook his head. A Dark Jedi Knight and a Major in the Vast Empire Army was reduced to a savage... there must have been some Sith poison on the claws of the Massassi.

TJ continued to walk down the tunnel. Constantly stepping over hatches that would inevitably lead to more creatures. Suddenly, TJ heard an explosion that shook the tunnel and then flames came roaring down from the way he came. Using force speed TJ tried to outrun it. After about a mile of running the flames were coming very close. They were just about to engulf him when he fell thorough the floor into a see-through container. TJ watched as the container's top close as the flames flew over top.

Looking around, TJ found himself in what seemed to be a control centre....

TJ looked around the room, trying to find a way out of the container. On the other hand, id he want to get out? He noticed at least a dozen creatures working on different tasks. A couple of them watching his every move.

Searching the room, TJ noticed a series of switches. Concentrating will all his might he tried to get them to move...none moved. Sliding to the floor he tried to contact the other Jedi...after a few minutes without responce he then realized how there wasn't a single thought, where he was receiving all kinds of "transmissions" before entering this container. There must be something causing his powers to be useless.

Feeling that escape was impossible at the moment TJ sat and watched the creatures activities before drifting off into a deep sleep....

Waking up, TJ wondered how long he had been asleep. Once again he searched his surroundings before realizing he still had his lightsaber. Slipping it off his belt he tried to ignite it...nothing happened...there was no way this force blocker was affecting it to. TJ looked at it, seeing that part of the handle was melted and warped...TJ was weaponless...

Sliding back onto the floor, TJ was just about to go back to sleep when the part of the container in which he was leaning against exploded, allowing him to escape.....

*****Krath group*****
Paan continued to fight the Massassi that was surrounding the group, with the meager support of those remaining. Talon had just recovered from the Sith Poison with the help of Athran and Jedi Healing powers. With two massassi left to face Paan abrubtly shut down his sabre and disappeared through corporeal translocation.

The rest of the group looked around confused... They had noticed Paan with worried looks or troubled looks within the past few moments but none of them had predicted this. Immediately and automatically Athran, the Dark Lord of the Krath, jumped into a leadership position of the rest of the remaining squad of Krath.

*****Sith Group*****
The three Jedi entered the chamber that the ancient jedi was in. the immediately saw him and began to approach, drawing all their sabres. As they moved forward to confront him TJ was lifted into the air by the Jedi's invisble hand. Being strangled in mid-air. The ancient one spoke out, "You pitiful beings call yourselves Jedi? You're pathetic... You have no place being here on this planet, I reccomend you leave now while you still have a chance, before I show you what the Force is truely about."

"You know nothing of the Force, Old man! Release my student at once!" a powerful voice boomed the command throughout the whole chamber. Exar and Tylen Jaap looked over in the direction of where it came from. It was a solid form silhouetted, by a dim red glow in the darkness that was extremely eery. It was the Dark Jedi Master Hexum, fully healed with the help of the Sith artifact. The ancient jedi also looked in that direction and dropped TJ to the ground as he couldn't help but stare stupifyied at Atrus.

"Master Atrus!!" Exclaimed Tylen... who had been fearing the worst for his new-found master. TJ stood as he recovered from the choking. The four jedi stood, and a simulatanious snapp-hiss filled the chamber as solid beams of energy sprouted from the mouths of each of their sabres.

As the three younger jedi approached the ancient one several massassi warriors appeared to confront them.... Blocking them from their attack.

Atrus unhooked the two sides of his lightstaff and held one in each hand. He stood into a confident combat stance and gave the ancient jedi a look that was meant to taunt him into attacking first. "What's the matter, old man? Scared of li'l ol' me? Scared of some small little known Dark Jedi group from some small 'hole in the wall' Empire?" the Master jested at him very sarcastically, as he taunted the old man on Atrus searched his mind to try to find his identity.

"Oh not at all... I still have quite a few cards up my sleeve, you foolish so-called Jedi." the ancient one retorted.

"Is that so, Jorj'Udei Karresh? And what might these 'cards' be? Hmm..." Atrus inquired, and just as he got the words out of his mouth, Gui Sun Paan appeard in front of Atrus and ignited his blade, then immediately went in for the attack. Atrus brought his blades together to form an 'X' to block Gui's attack.

Paan must've been out of his mind, Atrus resolved... "Gui! What the frak are you doing!? Get out of my way before I kill you, this is our planet and we will take it by force if neccesary." Atrus said with a growl.

"I am taking what is rightfully mine! I deserve to control the VEDJ. All I needed was the enlightenment that Jorj'Udei showed me, to realize that I truely am the strongest here, and I'll prove it here and now." Paan responded haughtedly

"Paan you are acting foolishly, and blindedly... Karresh is the enemy here! You're going to get yourself killed if you continue on this course of action!"


{OOC: "i paused here for a dramatic cliffhanger... i do have a plot in mind for Jorj'Udei Karresh, and Paan and I's fight and am in the process of writing the second half.. so please, if you post... do not post anything that impacts these two aspects of the story majorly... thank you very much''}

***Krath Group***

’What the hell?’ Athran reared telepathically. A giant paw came swooping down upon his saber, knocking it out of his sweating palms. He quickly force pulled the saber back towards him, catching it in mid-air and blocking the second massive limb the hideous creature swung at him. Again the colossal massassi warrior relentlessly pursued tearing him limb from limb. ’What the hell is his problem’ Athran thought to himself. After force jumping into the air, Athran regrouped with the remaining Krath members.

’I don’t think he likes your hair’ replied Talon with a grin. Swinging both of his saber through the air, Talon demonstrated he was over the Sith poison and ready to do a number on the remaining massassi warriors.

’Naa… I think he just wants to hurt you’ Zsinj replied while helping some new Krath DJK’s to their feet after being knocked unconscious.

’Well no matter what he wants to do, if he gets through me you two will be next’ said Athran with an evil grin. ’So we need to work together on this if we are going to get through it.’ ’Zsinj you and the two new DJK’s take one massassi, Talon and I will work on the other. Meet ya in the middle,’ replied Athran wiping the sweat from his brow.

Talon quickly force jumped through the air, behind the massassi him and Athran were facing. Smoothly slicing his sabers through the air, Talon caught the beast’s attention. The unsightly brute ran towards Talon, swinging his huge arms and screaming of unimaginable pitches that vibrated your eardrums so violently that it made your head feel as if was going to burst. Noticing his chance to make the final blow to the massassi, Athran force ran towards the beast’s spine, saber in one hand, vibroknife in the other. He charged at lightning like speed towards the huge mass of muscle and rage harassing Talon. Turning around the massassi noticed Athran charging at him, quickly it drew its huge paw back and swung the hardest blow he could towards Athran. Timing it just right, the beast knocked Athran in the opposite direction 40 behind him, nearly unconscious.

Seeing an opening, Talon jumped into the air and sliced at the Massassi's neck with both sabers like a pair of scissors. The cut went clean through, but the head of the Massassi remained on his shoulders. Performing another high jump, Talon did a flying roundhouse and sent the head flying.

Athran coughed a couple of times and opened his eyes to see the face of a Massassi glaring right into his. Rolling back and screaming, Athran used the Force to summon his saber to his hand and activated it. He looked down to where he was laying to see the head of the Massassi that Talon had killed. Shaking his head, Athran relaxed and moved with Talon to help the other Krath with the remaining Massassi.

As he dashed up to the fight with the remaining Massassi, Talon suddenly stopped, blinked a few times, and dropped to the ground. Athran was quickly at his side, making sure his sabers had turned off without hurting him, and trying to revive Talon. A deep roar could be heard, even by Zsinj and the rest of the Krath, and Talon's eyes shot open flashing with fire. Athran quickly backed away and tried to calm Talon's mind, but he had trouble concentrating...

Exar thumbed the switch for his lightsabre and with a snap-hiss a crimson blade sprung to life. With out thought he attacked a Massassi to his left, first feinting low, than attacking high. The Sith leapt into the air pulling his knees high and kicking the large Massassi warrior in the jaw twice, One-two! Than spun away.
Coming down from his twin kick Kun fell into a smooth forward roll and slashed the Monster's legs, just below the knee. The reddish Massassi gave Exar a stunned/angry glare than, without the support of it's base legs fell backwards. Keeping up his momentem Exar called on dark ripples of the Force to assist him in a powerful leap into the air, followed by a forward summor-salt and landing with the tip of his energy weapon barried deep into the Massassi's chest.
Exar leapt off the Massassi and landing into a Teras Kasi defencive stance, glaring aroung the large chamber. Just before attacking another Massassi beast Exar bowed his eye-brows at what appeared to be the form of the Masters Atrus and Paan.
