((This was posted as an semi-closed RP in December 2008. It starred Nitwhit, Hellrage and myself. I am posting this again because it is needed to understand some of my story. I will say who wrote each post under each.))

This thread is dedicated to detailing the escape of a young woman Viala Sunrunner aka Val who is a high sought after starship weapons designer for the Sith.

Brief overview of what's happened so far:
Having originally worked for a private corporation money exchanged hands and the young woman soon found a tracking device slapped on her wrist and blasters continually aimed for her as she was forced to design various high caliber weapons for the Sith fleet. Haven been given 'vacation time' for good behavior the woman decided to pay the Red Star Cantina a visit until her droid escorts caught up with her and led her to a nearby hotel complex

Unknown to the woman at the time a man named Will followed her from the Cantina. Will disabled the droids and helped the woman escape. There was a slight altercation with a Verpine Republic agent before Will's friends were able to get the tracking device off around the same time that a Sith tracked them down. The Sith entered the hotel room they were hiding in in an attempt to capture Val but was met by more force than he was expecting causing him to retreat while the others escaped by jumping out of the window of the hotel room on the 330th floor.

The Sith summoned troops (300 to be precise) to help him find Val and Will but it appears that his men were met with more of a resistance than they expected while Will, Val, and Will's wookiee friend escaped via speeder in transit to the starport...

This is where this thread picks up.

This thread is semi-closed in that if you wish to participate please send NitWhit or Kalenath a PM giving one of us an idea of what your character will be doing, their personality and such, so we can make sure your character will fit into the RP. Any of you from the hotel are more than welcome to jump aboard.

And most importantly have fun.

Let the chaos begin.

He sighed. They would no doubt be trying to escape the planet. His current "master" demanded him to take this girl alive, but the task was getting a bit too difficult. He could only hope he could find something to do with the bounty on the girl....and as for the male. He appeared to be a Officer named Will, of the Coruscant SPF. He was wanted alive too...dead would be too easy. His bounty on his head was a whopping 150k...more than enough to find a new starship. His minions were growing cranky from having to sleep in military cots on his masters ship. He should reward their service after all...

He keyed his comm attacked to his arm and communicated with the Abyssin aboard the commanding ship.
"Tell my "Lord" that the target is likely to be escaping and he will need to keep record of all the ships departing on this side of the planet. We need them alive, so make sure the captain doesn't blast a hole, as reckless as that worthless scum is." He keyed off his intercom.

He ordered the pilot to keep an eye on the building and told his troops to report when they try to leave. All he had to do was wait.

Will stared at his small scanner and grinned, then keyed his comlink.

"Thanks, now go." A hushed acknowledgment came and he nodded. "See you Kos." He turned off his comlink and turned to the girl, Val, he reminded himself. If he was disconcerted that they were still screaming down an elevator shaft into the depths of Coruscant's undercity, it was unapparent.

"Well, the Sith who tried to follow us just ran into a very hard wall of angry residents. Who know better than to stick around now. My 'friend' says that they lost about seventy five troops to the traps and mines, and their day isn't going to get better any time soon." Then he grimaced. "Kos and his people are running now, they should make it and..." he broke off and snarled. "Olana!"

The speeder came to a sudden halt in midair and then, with a peculiar twist, was outside the elevator shaft. A moment later air rushed by as something, an elevator car?, shot up the shaft. The Wookiee snarled and Will replied.

"Yeah, I thought it would take longer too, the maintenance droids must be working overtime..." Seeing Val's quizzical look, Will snorted.

"This shaft was offline for maintenance. We made sure of that, but... some repair tech must have been on the ball..." He looked around, then grinned. "Well, we still have always to go, and the Sith have to have dropped troops to surround the building, but we are not out of tricks, are we Olana?" A sound somewhere between a snort and a groan came from the Wookiee. He grinned.

"The Sith are going to be looking for a man, a woman and a wookiee. I know that Sithscum got a good look and me, and I'm... well, I'm known to them." His face took a hard cast. Then he grinned. "But I think I know a way to avoid them."

He sighed. What was taking them so long, the fools should of come out from their hiding place by now. He needed that money, so badly, his lightsaber was calling to him, and he was calling back. They were smart, he had to admit, and theres no wonder he has a bounty on his head. However, they appear to have underestimated his abilities, as to the fact they have no idea who he was. Than again, how many people would believe that Marka Ragnos had an apprentice? He smirked and turned to the pilot.

"Let me out, near the building they jumped to." Even though he didnt like he, he would have to try it. It would be worth it in the end. He just had to hope he wouldnt have to kill them before he could ask. He jumped out of the ship and infront of the building. Lightsaber activated, he went inside.

The Sith troops moved through the building, cautiously. Every so often something would explode, fall or otherwise cause serious harm to one or several of the troops. Finally the leading team, minus five of their number due to a floor plate that had been hinged over an elevator shaft, froze as their helmet lights illuminated an airspeeder, but there was no sign of anyone. The team leader, worried, called up the demolitions team. But nothing happened, and the demo team reported it clear. The team leader moved up to examine the speeder and a holo appeared. All of the Sith troopers froze, weapons ready, but nothing happened. The man in the holo smiled. The team leader nodded, it was their target.

"You will not get away." The man smiled wider.

"I already have." and then the team leader noticed something...the air was thick with...she screamed..er tried to, but her vision was blurring and she...

Will shook his head and deactivated his comlink, he couldn't watch it. He hated nerve gas. But it had its uses. And it was a non-persistent agent, so it would be safe for people to come back to in a few hours, until that though... The girl, Val, turned a head to him but he shook his head again and they continued on their way. Olana was long gone, laying surprises for the Sith troops and climbing for all he was worth. From the howls and roars in the distance, Will figured he was having fun.

Glad one of us is... This Sith armor smells like flarg

Will followed the Sith team leader's directions and the rest of the Sith patrol moved off slowly into the building away from where the speeder had been left, never realizing that two of its number had been steathily replaced with the fugitives they sought. Val followed in his footsteps as he had directed, silent. He bided his time, knowing it would come, eventually.

He sighed as he saw his troops dieng. Apparently he really didnt want to be caught. There was a wookie however, and that was good enough. He walked to where the Storm Commander was and asked him the situation.

"My lord, they appear to be holding back. We so far have only spotted a wookie, the other 2 are not to be found. We believe they escaped."

He growled and force choked the commander, and struck him with his lightsaber. Worthless....and he went inside the building to take care of this wookie himself.

Will froze as he saw the Sith who had challenged him before, luckily all of the other Sith, including Val, froze as well. But the guy with the lightsaber didn't slow, just ran into the building towards... Will snarled soundlessly and hit a quick command on his wrist keypad. Then he followed the team leader as he led off again, in another direction.

Soon, very soon...

Olana saw a warning on his keypad and finished off the last Sith of the patrol who he had ambushed. Honorable foes he would fight honorably, these scum? He scoffed, then saw the glow of a lightsaber in the distance. he made an obscene gesture in the Sith's general direction then darted into a hole he had helped make. As he did, he hit a switch. If the Sith followed him, he would get a most unpleasant surprise. The red icons of armed mines flickered to life behind the Wookiee as he jumped into a chute and slid for freedom. It was hard to tell what was more exhilarating, the ride or the satisfaction of knowing that the Sith would have a VERY bad day.

He grinned when he saw the mines flashing. He used the force to gather them and threw them at the wookie flying out of the hole. He turned and headed back as he heard a large explosion and felt joy like none he had felt in a long time. He quickly ran out to the commander to see what reports he had on casualties, and whether or not the tracker he had placed on the vespian had worked.

Olana got to his feet, shakily. Of all the contingencies they had planned for, having the Sith literally throw the mines down the chute hadn't been among them. He shook his head, he had outsped the blasts and all but a little of the shrapnel. But the Sith probably thought he was dead. He pulled a cloth sack to him that they had placed in the end room, just in case and smiled as he saw the medkit and the other items. Before he began treating his wounds, he spread a set of color crawlers on his fur and they began shifting his fur's coloration. Before he would be done cleaning and sealing his cuts, he would look very different from Olanagychew, the wanted Wookiee. He finished his ministrations, threw the used medkit into a corner, set the time delay on the demo pack that would destroy the safe room and walked out, just a common brindle furred Wookiee, on a planet with many of those.

Will heard the explosions and hoped Olana had gotten clear, but... it was time... They were far enough away and close to his second drop point. He sighed, then motioned to Val. She moved behind him and he drew his pistol. Not a blaster, but a slugthrower and a very special one, this one had a cylinder attached to the end. None of the Sith in the team realized what was happening. It wasn't a fight. None had a chance to fight back. When it was done, Will nodded to Val and they started off towards the edge of the building and a particular spot on it. When they reached it Val looked around and shuddered. Will did too. He hated this part. The cable that ran from this building to the next was invisible in the darkness of the Undercity. He put his bar on the cable and held out his arms to Val. She grabbed around him and held on tight. And off they went.

Twenty seconds later they were in another room, in another building. She shook her head, he grinned at her and they both started off. It was not a long way to the spaceport, only two more blocks, but... with the Sith on their tail, it might be a long ways indeed.

He smiled lightly. He was on a ship back to his master, and all would be well. He had killed a wookie, and while the others escaped, theres no way they could get past the defence. All was well. He rested his eyes as his heart beat to the shudder of the thrusters.
