[GJW XI] Clan Naga Sadow: Team Two


Shirai (6174)
Dragoon (11889)
Armad (13823)
Malik (97)


Teams must have a minimum of 4 participants, and a maximum of 6. For a team to qualify for placement, all posts must meet requirements in these rules and all members of the team must meet post number requirements. However, for participation alone, any individual meeting minimum post requirements will count towards his or her unit.
Any member posting twice in a row will disqualify his team from placing - but not participation credit (e.g. if an entire team is dead, Johnny McDarthman can post twice in a row to get his own participation at the end of the event)
Members must make 3 posts throughout the duration of the Run-On.
Posts must meet the following requirements:
Minimum post length: 250 +/- 10 words words
Maximum post length: 2000 +/- 10 words.
Points from placement are awarded to the unit of the placing team, irrespective of number of members on each team. E.g. if CNS Team A takes first place, and first place is worth 50 pts (example only), CNS gets 50 points, regardless of number of members on the team.
Edits may occur on a post until a follow on post has been made (follow on posts include “reserving” a space). Edits may only be made by the posts original author (as in, if you have Forum Administration Rights, you cannot edit another member’s work).
Members may reserve post, but no posts can occur until after the reserved post is written.
Judging will follow the Fiction Rubric.

Fiction Prompt

Civil War has befallen the Brotherhood. The Clans have split into three factions: the Loyalists, who have rallied behind Grand Master Ashen; the Rebels, following the banner of Jac Cotelin; and the New Order, led by the mysterious Sith Lord Esoteric. Each faction has stormed the surface of Korriban, establishing impressive fortifications and moving towards the Valley of the Dark Lords. Loyalists, Rebels, and the New Order clash across Korriban’s surface, all three attempting to gain control of the Valley of Dark Lords and the secrets it holds.

The Valley of Dark Lords has erupted in carnage, forces from every unit in the Brotherhood streaming into the ruins and temples, establishing makeshift defensive positions behind virtually every wall. Blood is spilled over every inch, each of the three sides gambling the lives of thousands of Jedi in an attempt to put an end to this conflict once and for all. The Loyalists, following Ashen’s command, seek to break through to the Tomb of Marka Ragnos, where the Disciples of Ragnos once sealed a chamber with writings on the Rite of Immortality. To open it, Ashen has sent three of his most skilled advisors in ancient dark rites and alchemy, but the way is not yet safe or clear for them, as the One Sith were originally entrenched in the Valley and still maintain a strong control over most of the area. Esoteric’s forces have a base of operations at the Tomb of Ajunta Pall, a fortified location that allows them a great deal of mobility throughout the Valley, which they use to harass any operations by the other two sides. The Adept Dantella Novae reluctantly commands Esoteric’s forces in the region, though she seems more interested in stealing the secrets of Marka Ragnos than in defending the Valley itself. Cotelin is seeking to contain and control whatever the Tomb of Marka Ragnos holds, through any means necessary… and before Ashen’s forces can reach it.

You and your team have found yourselves just outside one of the few entrances to the Valley of the Dark Lords. You know that inside the Valley, death and destruction have overtaken the ruins, but you also know that ultimately, victory for one side of the other is likely to come within the walls of the ancient tombs. Your runon should detail the battle within the Valley, and must illustrate (either through success or failure) at least one of the sides in the conflict - this will play a major role in your Story grade.


Everyone’s comlink chirped at the same time as they all stepped off the shuttles ramp. Being the newest member Dark Jedi Knight Armad was the first to answer his, with the others answering theirs in almost perfect unison. Grand Master Muz Ashen came across in stereo, “You four are the first to step foot on planet that the most qualified to lead a mission of the vital importance. Already on the ground are my most trusted Krath advisors, escort them to the Tomb of Marka Ragnos and insure their survival while they complete their mission.” With that the transmission ended. Looking to the Consul, Sith Warlord Malik Sadow, they fell in behind him as he led the way into the newly constructed base camp in search of the Grand Masters Krath advisors. Around them the base camp was beginning to take shape as they moved through towards where a very large amount of dark side energy was concentrated. Heading in the direction, they came across three figures in long, flowing robes, adorned with symbols and colors, dark purple hoods concealing their faces almost entirely. The only thing that could be discerned about them was that two were male and the third was female.

“We are your escort.” Malik stated to the Krath. They moved in unison toward the main entrance to the camp, we fell in around them in a loose diamond formation. Malik taking point, Sith Battlemaster Shirai Dupar and Obelisk Templar John “Dragoon” Witwalker taking flanking positions, with Dark Jedi Knight Armad taking up rear guard. As they exited the camp, Armad pulled largely on the dark side pushing his senses almost to their max to watch for any dangers, he could feel the others opening themselves to the dark side in what he assumed were the same reasons. Knowing that there was the possibility for multiple battles, Armad made sure that he wasn’t in his normal everyday attire, and don his battle armor. The armor’s plates were matte black, the cloth portions edges were streak in Krath colors, the hood itself was all Krath colors, but was drapped down his back so he could be vigilant of his surroundings. His newly minted, wood inlaid curved hilt with Krath colored wrappings at the base, hung from his right hip. His Fire Whip was wrapped around his waist, ready to be utilized at a moments notice.

The sounds of multiple battles echoed throughout the Valley as the group made their way towards where the Tomb of Marka Ragnos was rumored to be located. Since his Tomb had been lost to time, knowledge of it’s location has only been speculated at, hoping that the three Krath Pontifices knew where we were going.

Keeping an almost borderline paranoid watch in all directions, Armad felt that there was someone within ten minutes of our leaving the base. Looking around,he saw a lone figure leaning against a large outcropping of boulders. Wanting to get a feel for who it was, Armad stretched out with the Force towards that individual, what he felt was a Sith that could be on par with Shirai, though it was hard to judge for sure at this distance. While keeping most of his attention on the individual, Armad took a moment to reach out and touch the other three members of his escort team with the Force, warning them of a possible threat from the rear.
