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

Round 2: The Imperial Droid Division vs The Fist of the Empire vs The Phantom Hegemony

Welcome to the second round of Kaggath Battlegrounds Semi Finals! 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 go over the ground rules:

  • The arena: Dromund Kaas – 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.

Read the full rulebook here.

So, the combatants: Gathered deep within the territories of the Sith, a trio of dark empires gathers to do battle, and so prove through fire and blood who is strong enough to lay claim to the ancient Sith heritage, and challenge the Republic and the Jedi. The Imperial Droid Division under Jerec’s command seeks to restore order to the galaxy through mechanical might and bring forth a new era. The Fist of the Empire seeks to realise Tyranus’ vision of the future, a galaxy governed through Sith might and the power of the Force. Finally the Phantom Hegemony under Lumiya’s direction seeks to seize the galaxy from the shadows, and restore her masters Sith legacy through the supreme will of a Dark Lord.

Aw man, my opening argument isn't ready.

Ah well, it's mostly done. It should be fine.

==================================================

THE SPACE BATTLE HAS BEEN CALLED, FOR SCENARIO & RESULTS SEE HERE.

==================================================

As I'm sure we're all aware, the Arbiter for this match is Selenial

OK, so important notes for this match:

  • Savage is pre-cybernetics

  • The Malevolence does not possess an ion cannon

  • Asajj Ventress is pre-betrayal

  • According to a 3D model from The Essential Guide to Warfare the Harrower has 25 quad-turbolaser cannons and 16 light turbolaser cannons.

  • The Praetor Mark II-class battlecruiser is approx 8,000 metres according to Age of Rebellion

And to remind everyone of the rules specific to this Kaggath:
Spoiler
And that is all for now. Take it away Selenial!

No... I'm scared

Edit: Sorry to ruin a perfectly awesome front page post, but a rule addendum that I forgot to mention:

Quote:
Neither fleet may retreat until the space battle has been decided, namely that they have few remaining vessels. This rule is in place to stop the 1v1v1 nature of this Kaggath becoming an argument of "Let these two fight it out, then I'll come in with an easy win." Therefore, no retreat arguments will count for points unless the argument is being used in a "In a last ditch attempt to survive" kind of way.
We all live or die as Krayt wills, Stryfe. At his word, I would cut out my own heart. Or yours.

So... Beni, you gonna post that anti-IG argument now or what? I think I figured it out, but I want to see what you came up with.

And you'd better hope it works, because if it doesn't IG will practically solo your fleet. And that would be bad for me.

Edit: And now the waiting starts, waiting for the first person to draw.
