“No game of dejarik can be won without pawns...”

Round 1: The Ascending Empire vs The Alliance of Worlds

Welcome to the opening heat of the ‘Kaggath Tournament’. In this second series the competition will be pitting the power bases of player made factions against each other in an epic tournament-style extravaganza.

For all those of you aren’t aware, the Kaggath is an ancient rite of the Sith, ‘one part duel, one part large-scale dejarik-match’. The two factions have full use of their power bases, be it armies, strongholds or fleets, in order to outwit and outmanoeuvre their opponent - which this time have been chosen by the players. The Kaggath is no simple lightsaber duel, although it can come down to one, and the arena can be anywhere: a planet, star system or the entire galaxy.

Before we begin, let’s set out the ground rules of the Heats.

The arena: the known galaxy.

  • Only those incorporated in the listed in the faction compilations below can take part in the Kaggath.
  • No outside help of any kind, the combatants cannot call upon assets outside their power base, only that which falls under their sphere of influence i.e. contacts, access etc.
  • No outside involvement, other powers will not and cannot interrupt or affect the battle, for the purpose of argument they are non-existent.
  • No surrender, fight to the death!
  • Technology level is universal (unless considered archaic or advanced at the time): blaster fire, armouring, lightsabers etc. are all the same regardless of period, all that matters is size, quantity and power.
  • Factions are autonomous – players have no control over their factions decisions, this is determined by the nature of their leadership.

So, the combatants. Our very own King of the Kaggath – Aurbere – has submitted the Ascending Empire. An awesome amalgamation of imperial might and righteousness. While Tunewalker has submitted the Alliance of Worlds, a powerful confederation of the galaxies inheritors after the fall of the Galactic Empire. Behold the factions!
