IC: You are a member of an elite task force assigned to conduct a rapid entry raid in Xlopora City. Your team is tasked with recovering the the lost blade of Ferran, known as Revelation. Intelligence reporting indicates four distinct opposition Forces operating within Xlopora City.

1. One Sith Forces: The Sith Lord Esoteric has been identified by Taldyran reconnaissance teams. Esoteric is an unpredictable Sith Lord and has been connected to the death of multiple members of the Dark Jedi Brotherhood.

2. Unknown Imperial Forces: Arconan agents have reported multiple engagements with Storm Commandos and unidentified Imperial Storm Troopers. These unknown Imperial Forces appear to be coordinating their operation with the One Sith.

3. Sith Revenants and Ancient Sith Magic: Xlopora City is the seat of ancient Sith powers and is protected by unknown quantities of arcane wards and traps. Sith Zombies have been identified within the catacombs underneath the towered palace located in the center of the city. Shadow Academy Scholars have reported multiple deaths resulting from failed attempts to breach warded doorways and structures.

4. The Dark Brotherhood: The Dark Brotherhood is a fragmented organization designed to reward those who excel. Infighting, backstabbing, and treachery are acceptable tactics to achieve results. Dark Council reports indicate at least three skirmishes have occurred between opposition Clans and Houses.

The Sith Medium, Dantella Novae, has provided the Dark Council with a rough sketch of the chamber housing Revelation. She believes that a ritual, of some sort, will be required to gain access to the weapon. This ritual will require a significant cost from the team who discovers it.

This is a time sensitive operation that will conclude in 96 hours (16 real life days!) with the commencement of an orbital bombardment. Due to the short nature of the operation, your team will be limited to light infantry operations (no mechanized forces are to be deployed in Xlopora City). You may use any other equipment from your organization's order of battle.

Competition Rules:

Welcome to the Dark Crusade Epilogue: Bosthirda, a Run-On Event.

The following rules are in effect:

This is a run-on event based on the most recent Dark Brotherhood Plot Update, Bosthirda Planet Document, and event hook placed at the beginning of each run on.

Sign-ups for the event will begin on 22 February 2014 and end at 2359 EST on 27 February 2014.

The Team Captain from each team will email their team name and team roster to Muz, Raken, and Sarin.

Teams will consist of no less than 5 members and no more than 7 members. Units may submit as many teams as they can field.

250 word minimum per post. No maximum word limit. A post under 250 words will not be considered in a participant’s 3 post total. If a player writes five entries, 3 over 250 words and 2 under, they will still be given credit for reaching the minimum post limit.

Each team member must post at least three times during the event. There is no maximum post limit, but members cannot post consecutively. A single member failing to post three times will result in their teams DQ and elimination from the top 3.

Edits may occur on a post until a follow on post has been made (follow on posts include "reserving" a space). Edits may only be made by the posts original author (as in, if you have Forum Administration Rights, you cannot edit another member’s work).

Members may reserve post, but no posts can occur until after the reserved post is written.

The event will be graded by Raken, Sarin, and Muz using a rubric that focuses on creativity, plot development, realism, and grammar.

The winning team will win the Run-On for their unit. A single Independent Unit can finish 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in this event. This is a nova producing event.

Streaks of emeral light nestled into the duracrete rubble that had pressed themselves up against. Shards of rock rained down on them, bounding off of Kaz’s helmet. Alaris was seated next to him, sinking lower and lower as the rate of fire increased. The Remnant had them pinned down for the better part of five minutes.

“We have to get out of here!” Alaris screamed over the echoes of blaster fire.
Kaz tapped his helmet, his commlink had gone bust from the moment they dropped into the action.
“Why do you insist on wearing that armor anyway? You know that the Iron Throne’s technology is crap at the best of times.” They’d have laughed over it, and they probably would if they made it out…alive.

A tingle at the base of their skull heralded the arrival of something sinister. A loud roar and a bright red stream of energy pierced the overwhelming noise. Kazmir’s eyes fluttered up and down. Much to his surprise, neither him nor his Twi’lek companion were dead. He peeked over the rubble, casting a glance towards the Imperials that had them pinned down. They stood still, silently gazing at one of their own. The man sat slouched on his knees, a ten centimeter hole where his heart should be.

I only know one person capable of such a shot… The Echani thought to himself.

Nudging Alaris, Kaz pointed in the general direction of a familiar Force presence. Alaris didn’t need directions, he already knew who was providing them with covering fire.

“Decimo,” he whispered to no one in particular. “That son of a gun. I thought he was dead.”

Kazmir hit his helmet again, the static of the commlink fading in and out with chatter from Taldryan. “Harbinger Prime krrrch Deadeye krrch cove… fire…move!”
