Many thanks! In the upcoming weeks I hope to incorporate it more in my narrative.

Super underwhelmed about the whole “prospective” Mayweather-Manny rematch...like it’s obvious it’s gonna happen but I would rather watch Keith Thurman fight Manny later this year.

...and on a side note Broner stating he lost because it was rigged for the aforementioned rematch was in bad taste and then insulting and threatening a 60 year old man (plus a journalist after) probably is the last straw for him in boxing.

@darth_impero: @lord_decimus: @darth_miltiadesAnd pretty much anyone else on Oristicon

Continuation of Nexus Thread Post, Onslaught Cometh

The shadows of Sapphire City were in the distance, encasing what seemed to be the entire horizon in its enormity and some buildings seem to impale the night sky, mirroring the Ilariskii; the great chain of jagged peaks to its west. The march of Empire was in the air. The mechanical battlecries of airborne TIE fighters sounded under starlight and the juggernaut walkers crushed the earth beneath their pedestals. Alabaster columns of soldiers continued forward, attempting to breach the nigh-indestructible hulls of the fortresses beneath the mountains.

All of this nestled inland, against the dazingly hyper-luminescent shores of an algae filled ocean.

All of this...seen by the bloodlusted eyes of Sargon’s riders; who gazed through mirror black helmets atop their Swoops, crimson streaks of ion particles behind them as they tore above grass and sand forward, always forward, towards Sapphire City.

The two Sith Impero and Decimus had the bulk of the forces, leaving sporadic corps to defend what has already been taken. Miltiade’s Imperial’s have been fighting for some time with the inhabitants, something Stryfe had counted on.

Oristicon's Skies...

Coinciding with Nightbringer Location...

Tearing through the sky, the spectral Dawn Eater cloaked and armed prepared to intercept its starfighter targets, descending from the furthest heights of the Troposphere and downward like a Hawk-bat towards a number of TIE fighters. Radar jammers activated until the final moments. Like a phantom, it then deactivated all such generators, maximizing its auxiliary power for weaponry and shielding and it begun its assault. Attempting to catch the craft by surprise and succeeding as four plasma cannons began launching a decisive cannonade as the Dawn Eater rolled, evading return fire with strategic maneuvering and began pursuit of the fighters.

Sargon’s craft, a pinnacle of its class, was manned by former pirates and smugglers, heavily versed in ship to ship combat, it would make quick work as the cannons fired continuously and manned port and starboard side omni-rotating turbolasers fired from its flanks in a bombardment of scarlet.

The TIE fighters were nimble and quick, in formations they were ruthless however they were poorly shielded by design and their signature solarfins were large targets.

Caught unprepared and against a much larger, highly weaponized and faster craft...the fought against the Scourge of Sith Space and Hyperlanes across the Galaxy.

...And lost, each in an explosion.

Though these were not the entirety of Miltiade’s armada on Oristicon, a mere scramble, it was more than enough to get the prospective Emperor’s Armed Forces on alert. Yet, Stryfe wanted results and a plan had been set in motion.

The lead officer on duty, not daring to sit upon Sargon’s throne in the bridge, announced to the crew view loudspeaker. “Ordnance dispersed on my command. Ready the payload for ejection in three...two...one...

A hatch in the rear of the Dawn Eater was opened, a landing bridge extended forth as repulsors fired forward, causing pallets of uniformly stacked bombs to launch backwards down the bridge. In the dead of night, an improvised airborne payload screeched through the air and downward, spiraling out of control as the straps frayed and snapped and the plundered plasma bombs were freed from their cages, spreading out conically.

Sapphire City, occupied and oppressed, having seen the scope of wrath of Miltiades, now in this moment, was the site of a horrendous Sith Civil War.

And it began to burn again, as the first borough was overtaken by plasma bombs and the bright orange light of their explosions causing metal and concrete to freefall from their heights, and the collapsing buildings crashed into one another, resulting in a screaming city and aimed at distracting Miltiade’s Army from the true attack.

And thus, the Dawn Eater made a pass over the Ilariskii, the silver crescent, allowing the masses below to behold its splendor...and to take credit for its onslaught, only to slip upwards deep into the Troposphere and reactivating its cloaking and jammer technology.

Sapphire City...

After the Dust Settled...

This is Colonel Amilicar Vexx...the Dawn Eater has begun its assault, we will seize the moment...break the lines and stir havok.

The Nightbringers raced towards their intended targets, in the shadows of a crumbling borough, taking from the dew-wet grass and dry sand onto cracked pavement of Sapphire City. Their modified blaster rifles outfitted high capacity plasma cartridges and tampered triggers, were raised from Swoop mounted holsters above a saddle of Electropoles, opposite the throttle allowing for rapid fire and control of their vehicles simultaneously. The flew across the concrete dangerously low, sometimes mere inches on their speeders and weaved through the streets in what seemed like a single daemonic shade.

Then they were set loose.

Breaking away from their formation, Swoop riders took off into multiple directions, but always acting as one vicious unit and they began hunting down their rival Imperial foes with deadly intent.

Killing anything that moved, trooper or vehicle that found themselves in their high-speed path.

Bhargebba:

The Accursed
The Accursed

A thousand years ago, the dead planet Bhargebba was once a thriving and lush jungle planet known for various oasises and flora that were the envy of the civilized worlds. However, it was cursed to exist inside the Stygian Caldera; the Sith Worlds. This was its downfall. A millennium ago, a crazed Sith committed a mass extermination of the planet's populace, for no reason other than destruction, and disrupted the ecosystem to such an extent, all life on the once verdant planet was wiped away in the following centuries. It became a Wound in the Force, a place of darkness, pain and great sorrow. And thus it has remained. A planet that feeds on life and twists the minds of the sentient.

Half hidden in a bile yellow arm of the Stygian Caldera nebula, Bhargebba has been forgotten, lost to history as another world broken by the power of the Sith.

Until now.

A fallen Mandalorian by the name of Darth Stryfe rediscovered the planet scowering Sith Space Hyperlanes for wreckage and plunder many years ago and it is here, that the rumors of Stryfe's madness begins. Obsessed with forging a new interpretation of the Dark Side, he began building starcraft in old ports that lay in ruins and since then has amassed a loyal armada which uncovers more ruins by the day.

Resurrecting the lifeless desert world, bearing nothing more than a fortified city, but a beacon for Force-sensitives as either a place of ancient wisdom or a planet of horror.

Demographics:

Xol and its Temple
Xol and its Temple

It is believed that the planet once boasted a population of approxamtely two billion inhabitants, possibly in a caste system stylized after or directly inherited from the Sith Species. Which according to tablets and other relics found within the sand and fortifications, written in Old Tongue, the Sith language, seem to enforce these notions.

Currently, the Stronghold of Stryfe only hosts a fledgling number of around 300,000 permanent inhabitants. None of which are civilians and currently has no means of self sufficiency, relying on piracy to feed its army and expendable resources are gathered in a similar manner.

The City of Xol, the Night Capital, it is called as it receives a mere four hours of daylight, is the only populated area on the entirety of the planet and the majority of its structures were excavated by Stryfe's followers and are the foundations of his Sith Cult. More recent additions have been primarily military focused, such as spaceport expansions and numerous defenses. Its spaceports however, are toiled upon endlessly and have expanded rapidly in the short occupation of the world.

The Night Capital has no means of trade or manufactures any goods besides weaponry and craft for Stryfe's cult. In the past it is believed Bhargeeba once produced a plethora of consumable produce and diamond exports.

Xol hosts a great deal of groundside turbolasers of variety of sizes, five of which are some of the largest constructed outside of Super Star Destroyers and focused solely on anti-capital ship bombardments whilst the dozens of others gradually decrease in size to defend against nimble starfighters. Outside from turbolasers, several building mounted ion cannons exist and regiments are spread in a barracks of neighborhoods around the dark pyramid in its center.

After the resurrection of Bhargebba's Sith Temple from the rolling desert dunes, it has become a megastructure which dwarfs the buildings of Xol, it also functions as a base of operations for Stryfe's army and the enormous focal point of the city. Surrounded by an artificial lake, which due to its sodium content objects of even great size are unable to sink and exists merely to remind troops that Bhargebba is still a planet. Likewise, major walkways are powered by geothermic energy and produce heat from ground level radiators during the extraordinarily cold long nights.

Geography:

  • Possesses a radical climate, with temperatures often in excess of 110 degrees Fahrenheit during day side, with night side the temperature plummets well below freezing
  • Due to the Stygian Caldera, its solar cycle is on a 26 hour rotation but features only 4 hours of daylight in some areas and others upwards of 16 hours of daylight.
  • Bhargebba possesses no natural oceans or other bodies of water, necessitating moisture collectors to maintain the needs of the population of Xol.
  • The expanse of desert is broken into seven quadrants, whereas Xol is the epicenter, there exists multiple other cities still yet buried beneath the sand.
  • The dunes of Bhargebba shift with the winds, causing the landscape to change immediately in some cases.

OoC:

  • The Location of Bhargebba is semi-hidden, so invitation or previous knowledge of its coordinates may be necessary. Please contact Sargon Stryfe for further information.
  • Its planetary defenses are vast, please sell accordingly if attacking Xol or its inhabitants.
  • Primarily this thread is for future use, however Sith characters are welcome to explore its Temple without harassment if peaceful.
  • …..also its pretty creepy, so keep that in mind if you would lol

Within the ranks of Sargon’s forces, officers and elite units are predominantly comprised of rogue Mandalorians, many who see the more progressive religious views of current Mandalorian culture as feeble and weak and returned to the older views of worshipping War itself and see Stryfe as a resurrected Mandalore the Indomitable or as the avatar of the Mandalorian god of War, Kad Ha’rangir

Actual Confession: I am awful at editing my own written works and I rarely do drafts or think “long-term” for narratives and sometimes my spontaneity pays off and others I regret.

For example my “Ruins of Bhargebba” as a base was just me looking up weird planet names on Wookiepedia and was like “this is where I am gonna put stuff on” simply because I liked the name. I like the lifeless desert feel it has, but if I had to do it again I would have picked or developed another planet with a even more remote feel to it, as Bhargebba is in Sith Space and not “far” from Dromund Kaas, Korriban or Ziost

Oristicon:

The Battle-scarred
The Battle-scarred

The History of Oristicon is a tragic one. Once considered the crown jewel of the Outer Rim, encased in a wonderous nebula in a system that bears its name, it has since fell from grace due to nearly a century of war between the Empire and the Republic. Its significant natural resources caught the eyes of the Empire, which in turn lead to a series of invasions on the once Republic held sector. Since becoming absorbed into the sphere of Imperial influence, the multiple metropolises have slowly degraded due to emigration, as rumors of mass slave labor have become prevalent in the fields of Carbon, Desh, Neutronium, Diamond and Crystal mining. Oristiconian Sapphires, the prizes of the planet, are sought out across the galaxy for their rarity and beauty, as well as being one of the most powerful crystals for lightsabers and honored amongst the Jedi as gifts.

Yet, unknown to most of the galaxy, long ago Oristicon was a haven for Sith studies and sorcery within the mountainous oceanside region known as the Ilariskii range but also many fortified structures and perils aplenty.

The Empire has dealt with rebellion in small occurrences since its conquering, however they were sporadic and isolated events until recently. For many years a Rebellion movement has spread and had gained traction, until Darth Miltiades crushed the insurgency and now the planet, broken and battle-scarred, faces nigh extinction at the hands of the Empire as punishment.

Sapphire City, capital of the world, now burns...

more details coming soon...

Demographics:

With a population of approximately twenty billion people, Oristicon boasts a medium sized population in the Galaxy, but one of the largest in the Outer Rim.

Oristicon is primarily Human inhabited, accounting for 90% of its population while a significant portion of the remainder is split between Rodians and Duros. An impressive Cerean population exists, given their extraordinary low birth rate, it supports the highest number of Cerean inhabitants in the Outer Rim. Due to its proximity to various Hyperlanes and an economic trade-hub, Oristicon's merchant and transportation sectors support most sentient species from across the galaxy.

Several Megacities exist on Oristicon, however the most famous of all is known as Sapphire City. Named for the source of its great prosperity and the glimmering blue river that carves it way though its many boroughs, its population is nearly half of the planet's, approximately 9.6 billion. Also conveniently located next to the ocean, it has become a center for watersports and marina lifestyle only known to the wealthiest citizens in the galaxy and a popular destination for tourism from the Core Worlds. Situated behind the city is the Ilariskii range, forming a natural barricade of the elements and providing defenses from western advances.

Sapphire City

Geography:

  • Temperate Climate: lacking extremes and possesses four seasons typically save for the coasts which lack winter snow
  • Colonized Moon: Once a Carbon mining colony, the moon known as Durbon One supports a large network of fortresses being to the Empire
  • Karst Topography: Beneath the ground lay seemingly uncountable systems of caverns due to vast limestone erosion
  • Bioluminescent Waters: A unique form of algae resides within the various oceans, seas and lakes of Oristicon, giving their shores a glittering blue light and large swathes of these bioluminescent algae drifts gives deeper waters, near the surface, hundreds of acres of color.
  • Ilariskii Range: Large North-South running mountain chain that supports various networks of fortresses and long lost Sith artifacts.

Details and pictures coming soon...

OoC:

  • Recent Events: Miltiades' Wrath
  • This Location is currently in the state of constant planet-wide warfare and Imperial occupation; mild destruction of sites (within reason) are allowed due to nature of geopolitics and wartime. However, major destruction of occupied territories such as the Ilariskii range and Sapphire City are prohibited unless contacting Sargon Stryfe or Darth Miltiades prior.
  • SW: GDA Rules Apply
  • Have A Good Time (b~_^)b
