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

Round 2: The Empire of Plagues vs The Imperial Droid Division

Welcome to the second round of Kaggath Battlegrounds! Where instead of the entire galaxy, combatants will compete in planetary arena, where every soldier, stronghold and ship counts.

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. But 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:

  • The arena: Taris – see the faction rundowns for BOEs.
  • #1 The Kaggath is won or lost when the leader of either faction is killed.
  • #2 No outside help of any kind, the combatants cannot call upon assets outside their power base or influence.
  • #3 No outside involvement, other powers will not and cannot interrupt or affect the battle, for the purpose of argument they are non-existent.
  • #4 No surrender, fight to the death!
  • #5 Apathy is death. Factions are not allowed to hide or wait. They must act.
  • #6 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.
  • #7 Factions are autonomous – players have no control over their faction’s decisions, this is instead determined by the nature of their leadership.

Full Rulebook.

So, the combatants: Warren-Stride’s Empire of Plagues, otherwise known as Aeuso iv Rykste in the ancient Sith tongue, has infested the depths of Taris’ vast cityscape with a swarm of insectoids and monsters engineered by the great Karness Muur. Yet word of the coming plague as spread across the galaxy, and Silenceo’s Imperial Droid Division, an army of automatons, has answered the call – under the command of the ambitions Inquisitor Jerec they will do anything to exterminate the infestation. Yet first their Imperial fleet must break the Vong armada.

Behold the factions!

The Droid Division have issued the challenge, and their call has been answered. Only one will leave this world victorious. Will Taris be purged of Muur’s forces? Or will it be consumed and succumb to contagion? Its droids vs meatbags, but who will win? The battle lines have been drawn...

Let the Kaggath begin!

~~Aeuso iv Rykste~~
Empire of Plagues
(AiR)

I don't expect everyone to read this whole thing, but as arguments come up, it would be worthwhile to check my information on those topics in this write-up. I'm really proud of this faction. This explains why.

What are you more afraid of?
A weapon that could destroy you?
Or a weapon that could turn you into a monster?

Beni, you know I love you, but I also really, really hate you at the same time.

So this is Taris pre-bombardment, correct?

Wow. That was fast.

I didn't even have time to mention that the Arbiter for this match will be me!

Or apologise in advance for setting you up with the droidest faction of them all!

SEE.

I TOLD YOU.

I win lyfe.

I guess I have to stick with Canino on this, seeing as I helped him with his faction, I promise I'll support you next time though Warren (Deja Vu)
We all live or die as Krayt wills, Stryfe. At his word, I would cut out my own heart. Or yours.

But it had to be done, it was just too perfect. But I compensated by giving you the arena advantage.

And yes it is. All intact.

I'm not too sure about that. Good and bad things come with what you've given me planet-wise.

I do have to say that I like the premise of the debate though. The whole thing about AiR coming up from the undercity and the IDD swooping in to stop it. Cool concept for the battle.

Alright folks another thing I wanted to put here is some factoids about the planet. I'll be doing this for each round (I refrained from doing so in the last round because there wasn't much to comment on) in order to ensure each faction makes full use of the resources available to them. You don't have to use everything I mention but its worth a look:

Points of Interest

  • Kebla Yurt’s Equipment Emporium and likely various other shops located within the Upper City traded in heavy weaponry and speeders prior to the Imperial occupation.

  • The Tarisian military base is situated in the Upper City, established by Revan’s Sith Empire the base is equipped with a barracks, detention facility, repair facilities and heavy security.

  • The famous Taris duelling ring located in the Upper City attracted many fierce combatants such as Bendak Starkiller, Ice, Twitch and the Mysterious Stranger.

  • Zelka Forn’s medical facility run by Doctor Zelka Forn was a key proponent in the mass production of the Rakghoul serum after it was wrested from the hands of the Sith.

  • Javyar’s Cantina in the Lower City was a frequent hangout for smugglers and bounty hunters.

  • The Undercity sewers down to a lack of proper maintenance have become infested with rakghouls, and occupied by the criminal elements from the Tarisian lower levels.

I will need time to come up with a more formal opening statement, but during that time, This is what I have to say...

"What I unveil today will mark a new era for the Empire. We will be able to decimate the Rebels just as we did the Jedi Knights. At last the Emperor's war will be filled only with the glory and beauty of decisive victory."―Rom Mohc Never force a droid to think without numbers...

The main advantage though is that you have a large population to work with, as a substitute for a non-organic army.

And yeah, again I just couldn't pass it up.
