[CENTER]Children of War
: This is it, the final battle! Your primarily objectives are to safely get the Violator Bomb onto the Yammka
, as well as take out the main villains: Vasi Khess, the Force-sensitive leader of the Shamed One rebellion, and Varesh Shai, the Warmaster of the Yammka Vong who oversaw the sacking of Sadow Palace. This is your chance to shine. There is also Romm Shai, the Yammka
’s captain, and Admiral Izvoshra, the Patriot’s Fist
’s commander, still to be dealt with. While those two are secondary, it still means if you want to perform a bombing run on the Fist
to take out the battlesphere and kill Yashais, you are free to do so: just remember the main
objectives are the Yammka
, the Warmaster, and the Force-imbued heretical Shamed One leader. This is one of those rare chances to take part in something memorable to put on your wiki that nobody else will be able to do again—so get remembered as a Hero of the Clan!
Clan Naga Sadow
It was still only a few days ago when the Yuuzhan Vong struck without warning, and in all that time you have hardly slept. The few hours on the Final Way
travelling out into the deep abyss of Wild Space have perhaps been the first brief respite you've been able to find, that is if you have been able to sleep at all in knowledge of the impending final battle. Six years. It has been a long time fighting the invaders since they first emerged on the outskirts of the Outer Rim. And it all comes down to this. The survival of Clan Naga Sadow is in your hands.
Upon arrival, you watch as one of the Vong cruisers slams into what you can only assume to be their flagship—what is going on? Are they fighting amongst themselves? It seems in the six days since their initial attack, the fall of the Yuuzhan Vong Empire two years ago has finally caught up with them. It would seem their Gods have not returned like they had hoped after butchering so many young apprentices on Sepros. You watch as two factions of Vong tear into each other, one group seemingly having turned suicidal and launching their ships into the mighty flagship and its escort on kamikaze runs. The Peace Brigade remnant who escaped Orian appear caught in the middle.
As tempting as it seems just to leave the Vong to destroy themselves, the Dlarit Navy has been here once before, three years ago, at Telos. This time Admiral Simonetti is not prepared to take that risk. This time it ends here. The Violator Gas Bomb will see to that. Everything
, Vong, human and alien alike will meet their end here. Simonetti's orders are clear, you must plant the VGB in the heart of the Yammka
. And despite the war unfolding between the rival Yammka and Yuuzhan Vong, you still have another mission to get done: rescue the Overlord's son, Remulus Sadow, and the Proconsul, both of whom you sense still live somewhere aboard the gargantuan Yammka
. But... there is also another
Force presence—almost as if there are now two
Remuluses? How can that be possible?
All this means running the gauntlet of the civil war currently unfolding on the Yammka
between Warmaster Varesh Shai of the Yammka Vong and the Force-sensitive Vasi Khess of the Shamed One rebels...
Plant the Violator Gas Bomb inside the Yammka
and defeat both Varesh Shai and Vasi Khess.
Appreciating how much of the story there is still left to cover, we don't want to hurry you such that you don't have any time to enjoy it. While the intended
closing date is Sunday 13 September, what we may do if you're still getting through the fight is put on some light Epilogue events while we mark up the Week 4 events next week, giving you an extra week to get the Run-On sorted. This is not guaranteed
though, so do try and aim for the 13th deadline as much as possible if you can. Regardless, the run-on won't go on indefinitely, so at most it'll mean an extra week.
Additional note #2:
While I don't want to put words in anyone's mouths, or ink in anyone's pen, while killing the Vong is a given, how you end up dealing with the Peace Brigade is totally down to you. It might just be the Vong blow them up. It might be Simonetti and the fleet deals with them off screen. They might sue for peace and Yashais ends up joining the Corporation, the choice is yours. Since this is now the end of the story, the ball is well and truly in your court now. I make no more mention of Varesh, Vasi or Yashais in any of the epilogue, so it is completely open how you decide to deal with them. So there is no need to fear any Dark Jedi Masters suddenly appearing from the shadows to take out the villains. That privilege entirely falls to YOU
. Aside from having your own Death Star show up, there's practically nothing you can do wrong.
Just do note, the "second Remulus" is because Vasi was injected with his blood, so, no, there is not a clone of him.
If it helps you at all, Varesh Shai is the left half of my avatar, Vasi Khess the right half.
