Re: Altered Legacies

“You... failure!” Ruk snarled as he made his way back inside. “The worm is nothing compared to what waits for us inside the temple. It's just a dumb animal, it's mind barely operates above pure instinct. Killing it would have been an easy task.” Hirai held her head low in shame. It was tough to tell...

Re: Crucible: Gods of the Arena

Skarrek was a mess of wounds when Verax unexpectedly called for a halt in the training with Melis. It took a few moments for the Felacatian to calm down enough to stop fighting, but she was definitely making progress in controlling herself. It was more than Skarrek could say for himself. He was no c...

Re: Crucible: Gods of the Arena

Dorval hated to admit it to himself, but he had a hard time trying to figure out Kroda's angle in suggesting they put even more assets at risk in Jiron's little scheme. It was especially confusing to him because it didn't seem to benefit Kroda in the slightest. Even if Verax lost this upcoming death...

Re: Crucible: Gods of the Arena

Kresh Lorda had a version of the Hutt Council that operated in much that same way as the main one, however achieving influence on it was tied more into the success of that kajidic's gladiators rather than on profits alone. Of course success and profit often went hand-in-hand, but the key difference ...

“It doesn't matter what it is,” Ruk shouted back at her. “Take care of it!” Hirai looked back at the giant creature, some sort of armored worm that looked like it could chew up the Juggernaut with just a few bites. Ruk was currently driving away from it, but the worm was pursuing on the surface. It ...

Dorval in particular was extremely pleased with how well he had handled himself in the arena and had pretty much authorized Verno to give S...

The A6 Juggernaut was designed for many things, but comfort was not one of them. Even up in the cockpit, every bump in the road was keenly felt – and there were a lot of them. It was charitable to even call it a road and Hirai would have sworn Ruk was simply going offroad if not for the occasional g...

“Not bad,” Ruk admitted. “You had me at a disadvantage, so why did you stop your attack?” Hirai looked at him in surprise. “We're only sparring to show you what I can do.

Ruk simply nodded at the compliment.

Re: Crucible: Gods of the Arena

Despite appearances to the contrary, Skarrek's charge was anything but blind or rushed. He was using a predator tactic as old as time; rushing into the herd and seeing how they reacted – looking for weakness in how they responded to the threat that could potentially be exploited. The three Mandalori...

The following day had much of Kresh Lorda buzzing with anticipation about Skarrek's unexpected match. His opponent was being kept deliberately ambiguous by Dorval as it was a match being supplied entirely by the Trinivii kajidic, so this fight had no stakes for any of the other kaijdics. Still, word...
