Nicely done, Jag. :)

Okay, looks like everything is just about in place to start wrapping this up.

Oremin will be uncovering Arcanix's location very soon so, Cadden, the time for Trayus to do what he needs to do is now.

Pryde, I would say that we need to hurry up and get Clara and Isis and company off of Mon Cal, but ironically that's where Sivter will be going next, so Granth will be heading back that way anyway. :oldrazz:

I hope I did the Charon justice. I only had the Alsakan thread to go by.

If it matters, Halo, I plan on having the XE devote a task group to Mon Cal. Along with them will be a full regiment of Ghost troops, in addition to the current company deployed with Asemir.

But, they'll be NPCs mostly, so they'll only serve a fluff/lore purpose. :P

Question: Couldn't a powerful (or not) Jedi simply Force-persuade a formation of cultists to reveal the location of Arcanix, and have them all simultaneously die?

Like, if Obi-wan had a megaphone and said to the whole group of cultists rushing to kill him "You will tell me the location of Arcanix!", would they all just explode and die? I think that'd be a marvelous way to thin the ranks!

Jedi mind tricks only work on the weak minded, other Forcers probably have a greater immunity to it. Also, the Jedi Code probably has a clause in there somewhere against mass murder.

Are you actually going to destroy Mon Cal? Or will Kalja (or whoever is supposed to) surprise Sivter during the space battle and kill him before the Charon manages to destroy the planet?

Oh, and fully half the Confederate Navy will be at Mon Calamari to avenge Fuller - including proton torpedoes, mag pulse torpedoes and nuclear warheads ;)

Garret and Mai are supposed to tag team and hack the other drives to send the Charon back to where they came from. 'Cept Mai's still stuck on the Ardin and Garret's been doing all the work. Oh well, maybe she'll have some input that will prove vital at a crucial moment, or something. :P

Since I've gotten no request that I can remember *Starts going through PMs (Not PMS, jag, but nice try ;) )* about Mon Cal being hit that bad, I would assume he's not destroying Mon Cal.

That being said, I'm going to make a new thread for the battle soon if no one minds. To detail NR preparations and give us a central thread.

I did PM you about attacking Mon Cal a few months back, Mir, but you're right in that it won't be destroyed (just roughed up). This is the battle where the Charon are defeated. It won't be force of arms that ultimately defeats them, but Garrett Granth exploiting a backdoor in the otherdrive that Sivter put there to give him control of the Charon. In effect he's going to send them back to otherspace for good. Sivter will then retreat and we'll have the final battle of the War of Darkness at Arcanix where the Cult of Shadow is shattered and Sivter finally meets his end.

Of course it won't be quite that simple and there will need to be fighting to defend Mon Cal long enough for Granth to do his thing. Lots of opportunities for stories to happen in the meantime.

Wait, so there's a black hole in the Mon Cal system? Due to Delth?

Is there still a Renato-Arksis fight in the works for someday soon? Mir has control of Renato now, and I don't mind that, but he seems incomplete without the whole "vengeance on Arksis" thing going on.

I only ask because the War of Darkness seems to be heading towards a wrap-up.

Yes there is, but it's not going to happen until after the Battle of Arcanix (though Renato could face him there too, I guess). Anyway, it might have more of an impact to have Arksis show up after the cult is destroyed when everyone thinks their threat is gone.
