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

Bonus Round: The Droid Supremacy vs The Dark Imperium

Welcome to the bonus round of the ‘Kaggath Tournament’. Where the winner of the Runner-Up bracket and then Grand Champion go head to head for your viewing pleasure.

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 finals:

  • The Kaggath is won or lost when the leader of either faction is killed.
  • 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!
  • Apathy is death. Factions are not allowed to hide or wait. They must act.
  • 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. Capital ships in particular will be evaluated by classification.
  • Factions are autonomous – players have no control over their faction’s decisions, this is instead determined by the nature of their leadership.

So, the combatants: They thought he was dead, that the Supremacy was over. But they were wrong, and the rumours were true. Deep within the belly of the underworld G0-T0, the legendary crime lord and Grand Champion of the Kaggath, reawakens in a new droid body and reassumes control of his faction. In the wake of a series of devastating conflicts only one faction remains to oppose his rule. The Lord of Betrayal, Darth Traya, musters the sinister forces of the Dark Imperium with plans to put down the droid overlord for a second and final time. Behold the factions!

Let the Kaggath begin!

I figured I'd give folks more of a reason to read the OP this time so I swapped out the usual faction descriptions for a bit of story time. Enjoy!

Long awaited? I'll say
Been looking forward to this!

Will start it off with the Traditional run down of why I win


.
  • HK-47. Who better to cancel down HK-01 than his predecessor? HK-47 is a dominator, he's a fighting machine that could even handle the likes of Guri with ease, fitted with a Stealth Generator by Maul and he's god.
    .
  • Traya's foresight. Well, if there's a reason to pick G0-T0, it's that he's amazing at playing the coward. He can hide in any little hidey hole like an absolute Baus, and no leader in this Kaggath can effectively track G0-T0 as well as Traya can.
    .
  • Traya's foreknowledge. She knows everything about G0-T0, and he knows nothing of her. She knows his secret, she know's he's a droid. What on earth would the bounty hunters say if they realised he was a droid? He himself remarks at how pathetic of a crime boss he'd be with just the disguise of a lowly "accountant droid"
    .
  • Maul. This guy's a baus, he took down the entire Black Sun on his own, all the Vigos, everything. He did this because no matter how much money they throw at bounty hunters, droids, and defenses, No Non-Force User can stop him. This match would be no different to that elimination of the Black sun.
    .
  • Malgus' Stealth Fleet. Rakata Tech, Nuff said. But in case it's not, these things would decimate Warren's fleets, coming out of stealth, wrecking them from behind. Not going to lie, If we had 5 Harrowers against 40 of her frigates, and it was a fight on the Harrower's terms, I doubt a single Harrower would be scratched.
  • Open Circle Fleet. The powerful ability to keep toe to toe with any amount of Starfighters is something that is blatantly obvious of the open circle fleet. The Mandator alone carries enough Starfighters to Dwarf the Black sun Navy. These guys are also piloted, at least the elite squadrons are, by Dark Jedi from Revan's naval force.
    .
  • Sith Assassins. Whilst these bad boys are most effective against force users and biologicals, they serve their purpose here. Sith Assassins were known to set up underworld contracts, terrorize planets etc. Once Faith in G0-T0 is lost, these could head to Nar Shadaa and set up contacts and armies.
    .
  • Shadow Troopers. Stealth, Need I say more? Infiltrate Geonosis/Kamino much?
    .
  • Santhe/Sienar, I've been through this a LOT, these guys produce everything.
    .
  • Malachor 5. I know, it's been debated to death, but the fact of the matter is, even if by some miracle Warren gains space superiority, she doesn't have the weaponry to fire long range, she doesn't have the Pilots to land masses of forces here (which is her speciality) and she has no Force users to take on Traya/Maul in the core.

You mean his successor. Also I doubt that latter bit, but your right on HK-01, 47 could take him down.

Yep, god knows why I put Predecessor

But yeh, I think he could take Guri with a Stealth Field Generator.... His combat skills were exceptional, Sienar has the cloaking fields for it and Mauls skill with technology was unprecedented in the sith.

The Imperium's greatest advantages are infiltration and assassination. So let's use these advantages, Sel. Dispatch a group of stealthed Harrowers to Geonosis, plant a battalion of Shadow Troopers, feign defeat, and retreat. The best tactic here is to feign weakness while infiltrators go about their work.

Combat skills...you mean firing a blaster? :P Guri can do that too and is fantastic with H2H coupled with her super speed/strength.

Though HK could probably, she could easily just as trash him.
