Well. I suppose this answers my dilemma of what to do... I suppose I have to build influence.

Surprisingly, the Heroes and Bastila seemed to all have one desire, to secure the bond they had with their Captain.

Everyone but Sasha gained Influence

Sasha was content to sit quietly with the rest of her family.

But soon the time was upon them. They had little time, and none of it to waste.

As they were about to step out into the beating heart of Malak's empire, Bastila's hand found Revan's shoulder. He melted a little at her touch, and turned to give her his attention.

"Yes?"

"I just wanted you to know... I'm with you. I'm with you until the end. Even if that's here, in a few hours. Even if this was all for naught... I love you, too." She stammered.

Revan kissed her once more. It was short. But it was full of affection.

"I know."

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A blaster bolt whizzed straight past Canderous' head, hitting the blast door that separated the Heroes from Malak's personal quarters.

"Blast it!" He spat. He was out of charges.

"We can't turn back now!" Revan shouted, trying to be heard about the suppressing fire from Malak's troops. They had mown down hundreds, but that didn't seem to hurt their resolve.

"Then what do we do?" Bastila asked, rather calmly, considering the situation.

T3 whistled. He had found a terminal for the door.

Canderous rolled towards it, a bolt nearly hitting him as he dove. In a moment, he was rapidly analyzing the controls for the door.

"It's passcode protected."

"You've got to be kidding me...." Bastila sighed.

"Zaalbar!" Revan shouted. "Give us some cover!"

The wookiee roared and began spraying red hot fire down the hallway.

"Alright. We don't have much time. Get to work."

The next phase will begin at 9PM EST on Thursday (yeah right) or when you guys finish the puzzle

I would have been done sooner but I was out of the house for the first hour and a half, sorry.

Bastila quickly solved the puzzle and entered the passcode for the door. Once again, she had proven herself invaluable in this arena.

Bastila has gained influence

The blast doors began to separate, and the Heroes dove through as soon as they could get their bodies through the opening. As soon as everyone was inside, they slammed the controls to close the doors and T3 began disabling the controls. They were inside.

"Impressive." Came the mechanical voice.

"She's talented at puzzles." Canderous stated. "I'm talented at killing Sith Lords. It works out."

Malak laughed, which sounded like a metal sheet being dragged over a grater. "You are eager, Mandalorian. I'll give you that."

The whole exchange seemed almost surreal. This was the Villain they'd been pursuing for their entire journey, and now he stood before them.

Malak seemed to pick up on their reservation. With a quick flick of his wrist, two trained bodyguards rolled out next to him, training their weapons on the Heroes.

"Well... this is what you wanted." The Sith hissed, his posture stiff, his muscles flexing. "I will give you the execution you've worked so hard for."


The next stage/phase will begin at 9PM EST on Thursday OR whenever I get y'all's combat actions

OK, look, I realize that my perspective is slightly skewed since I'm a real Star Wars nerd. But seriously, those puzzles were all WAY too easy. Especially considering The Google. Questions need to be more roundabout so that you can't just type it into Google and get your answer. I'm sure it's not easy, and I appreciate so much the work you've done on this game, Justin, it's been great. But seriously, you need some harder puzzles if you do something like this again.

Yes, you're right. These puzzles were easier to figure out than I had originally predicted. It was not intentionally easy. In fact, I actually thought that it'd go the other way. I was absolutely terrified of the prospect that the Heroes would be unfairly hampered by puzzles that they wouldn't know how to solve (due to the fact that I'm more on your end of the spectrum in Star Wars geekdom). And while I tried to make questions harder, and less Google-able, apparently I was no match for the likes of our extremely intelligent and resourceful players.



Thank you for the feedback!

Some of them required lots of creative thinking and logical leaps. Or maybe that's just me, being uncreative. It's possible.

Anyway, go, fight, win, etc.

Wow here comes the final battle!

And not that I'm a person that doesn't want to die but like FYI Evan the person who has trained the most, and therefore has the biggest attack, is Zaalbar. And then T3 is second. I have the least attack. so I'm the least priority :mrgreen:

*Ahem* Actually, I've only trained once, the same time that you did.

I currently have 3 of 6 possible players' actions. If you are not going to take an action this stage/phase, it'd be beneficial to let me know. :) That way we can advance as soon as everyone's ready!

I thought the neutrals didn't have combat actions?

Yes meaning they don't have combat actions, or they do have combat actions? Because there are only six people alive right now, and two of them are neutrals, so wouldn't that be four people to send in actions, not six?
