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

Round 1: The Felonious Empire vs The Ascending Empire

Welcome to the first round of the Semi-Finals. The winner of which will claim a prized position amongst the finalists, of whom there will be only one champion.

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 combatants have full use of their power bases, be it armies, strongholds or fleets, in order to outwit and outmanoeuvre their opponent. 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 Semi-Finals.

  • 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 or influence.
  • 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: Canino is returning with cabal of felons and imperials, and Aurbere with his righteous army of might. Behold the factions!

Let the Kaggath begin!

So... I hope I didn't miss anything. *waves sheepishly*

Looks like good guy vs. bad guys so at least defections will be extremely unlikely. It'll be interesting to see if Vader can punch into the core, Aurbere always did have a strangle hold on that...

So I think Obi-wan or Koon will be guarding Mon Mothma at all times... I haven't seen much clone wars cartoon, how does Sing's assassin skills stack up? Also, Vader vs. Obi-wan, admit it, we all want to see how that matchup goes...

Edit: more thoughts, so Vader won't die unless its Obi-wan (or orbital bombardment) imo... as for strategy I thing Aurbere has the skies locked up. Wedge and Garm have fought guerrilla wars and that's what they'll be facing imo. Will mass driver cannons and stealth be enough?
Zey: "Kal, you know that the Sith are bad news. They're evil. They've always been the cause of endless war and carnage across the galaxy."
Skirata: "Oh, that's a good one. 'My decapitations are more morally valid than your decapitations.' Only difference I can see is that they plan to end up with trillions dead, and you do-gooders manage it by accident."

Plo Koon and Obi-Wan probably won't be guarding Mon Mothma unless she aids in the military planning (which she has been known to do). Most likely she will be protected by Imperial Knight Masters.

I'm going to have to think on this one. Silly me, I had been preparing for Star and Warren, not Canino.

I guess my first order of business will be to research if I will have some new, shiny droids fighting for me....

P.S. Sing's got skill. I'll post it later. And if she doesn't succeed, is the master of escape.

Sorry Canino, for what I am about to do.
The Mandalorian Wars were a series of massacres that masked another war, a war of conversion. Culminating in a final atrocity that no Jedi could walk away from… save one.

Tell that to Ahsoka Tano.

So you mean we she drew her pistol and fired it before Ahsoka could draw her lightsaber? Or when even though her ship was destroyed, she survived, and continued to hunt down bounties? And, that entire mission was a failure for one reason- Boba. The FE doesn't have a Boba. It's Sing, and all around her people that would love to die for a success. And, remember, Sing only gets better after her IA training under Vader.

I'll be on my phone for a littler, so only little posts from me.

Indeed, poor girl got shot in the arm and had to be saved by a Senator... how embarrassing.
