Following the assault on Beige Carpet City, the CIS has attempted to attack the Republic ofrces again, this time near the small village of Beigetown. The Republic has sent a battalion there to defend the town and thier borders.
The Republic troops. Led by Plo Koon, Kit Fisto, and Kit's apprentice, Nadhar Vebb. Luminara Unduli and her apprentice Bariss Offee have also decided to lend a hand. Commander Raptor has also returned, leading a special forces team alongside Plo Koon, while commander Fox and lieutenant Phoenix help lead the main assault group.
The mighty CIS army, rumbling forward from some dark portal underneath my table. They are lead (again) by Asajj Ventress and Savage Opress, along with a small band of dark jedi who have decided to get in on the battle.
Our favorite ninjas have returned to help the Republic. Zane and Cole have also acquired their golden weapons since the last battle. They are aided by Ben-Jammin the Exile and a new ice ninja named Duke (I know its Zane's ZX outfit but just play along with me here...
Since their skullkin allies left them, the CIS decided to hire a team of Mandalorian soldliers and mercenaries to help them in the battle. They may be small, but thier skill is great.
The Republic forces begin moving forward, when Luminara and Fox stop to chat with Raptor and Plo Koon about battle plans.
"I'll take a team and secure the town," Luminara says. "Fox and Phoenix will help the main force along with Kit and Nadhar."
"Sounds good," Plo Koon replies. "Raptor and I will go help our ninja friends."
"Oh man, look at 'em all!" Says Jay as he spots the CIS army, barely able to contain his excitement.
"Yeah, its time for some payback!" says Cole. "And I've been itching to try out this thing." he says, raising his Scythe of Quakes ominously.
"But remember what Sensei said," Zane cooly replies. "We should only use them if we absolutely have to..."
"Drastic times call for drastic measures," says Kai.
"Forward you imbeciles!" shrieks Asajj Ventress to the dark jedi. "Savage! Remeber: we cannot let any of them survive this time! No retreat!"
"Yes, mistress." Savage sullenly replies.
The formidable CIS army trudges forth slowly behind them...
One unnaturally observant droid manages to notice the advancing ninjas.
"Sir, I think they are trying to flank us!" he says, alerting his officer to the danger.
"Ready that proton cannon!" he says as the massive weapon slowly hums to life. Unfortunately it will play almost no role in determining the outcome of this battle...
Kit and Nadhar lead the Republic's main force.
"I've been eager for this!" says Nadhar. "Finally time to avenge our fallen troops!"
"Don't give in so easily to your anger, Nadhar!" Fisto warns.
"Yes, master," says Nadhar, with a disapointed sigh.
As Luminara and her team enter the town, Plo Koon and commander Raptor lead their team to help the ninjas.
"Eyes sharp, men!" shouts Raptor. "They could be anywhere, so stay alert and watch each other's backs!"
"Oh man, I don't know about this," Jay says "They brought a lot of dakka!"
"Calm yourself..." says Zane in response.
"Relax," says Ben-Jammin, "I've taken down guys a lot worse than these bolt-brains before..."
Asajj's dark jedi team enter the town, whereupon they spot Luminara's clone detachment.
"Clones! Its the Republic!" one of them shouts "Attack!"
The CIS army, with their mercenary allies, prepare to round the corner of the town and confront their Republic adversaries.
Realizing how foolish it would be of them to charge the CIS forces head-on, Kit and Nadhar head into the relative safety of the town, and stop right around the corner of a building where the dark jedi lay in wait.
"Shh! Let's wait here and ambush them!" says Kit.
The Republic army charges the CIS troops, and the battle begins!
"Ben-Jammin the Exile? I'm suprised to see you here. I thought you disliked us Jedi?" enquires Plo Koon to Ben-Jammin.
"I go where I'm needed. The Republic needs me." Ben-Jammin replies.
"You are a strange man," says Plo Koon. "But we welcome your help nonetheless. Now, shall we show these enemies of ours a thing or two?" Plo Koon says, motioning with his lightsaber toward the advancing CIS troops.
"Let's..." says Ben-Jammin.
The ninjas rush forward.
"Split up!" shouts Kai "Theycan't hit us as easily if we aren't all together!"
Suddenly the tank droid and STAP rush forward, blasting their cannons at Kai. The shots fall just a bit short, but the blast sends Kai flying backward. "Oof!" he shouts as he hits the ground.
The Republic ISP speeders and the CIS tank droids begin firing at each other, and our long tank duel begins. Meanwhile, the Mandalorians use their jetpacks to begin playing leap-frog over the tanks.
The dark jedi move forward and spot our hiding jedi pair. Thinking quickly, Nadhar uses the force to push one of the dark jedi, sending him sailing backward and hitting his comrade, knocking them both over. Kit then jumps forward and attacks the third dark jedi.
"See how you like this!" shouts Cole as he runs forward and plunges his Scythe of Quakes into the ground. Suddenly the ground begins to rumble, and a series of stone columns rise up from under the tank droid, doing some damage. Meanwhile Kai and the other ninjas destroy the STAP and a few other droids.
...While Zane begins his infamous dragon-summoning ritual...
A droid heavy then steps up and fires a missile at Jay and Duke. "Whoa!" cries Jay as he jumps to the side and dodges the blast. Duke isn't so lucky, however, and the blast sends him flying.
Our tank duel continues, as both sides take some damage from the other.
"Die you jedi filth!" cries Asajj as she lunges forward and attacks Kit.
The Republic army slowly closes in on the CIS troops...
"GRRRAAAAAHHHH!" Shouts Cole as he pulls his Scythe from the ground and swiftly decapitates two droids.
The other ninjas manage to quickly finish off the other droids.
Kai is blasted by the dwarf spider droid, knocking him unconcious...
Our tank duel intensifies as the CIS tanks quickly begin to lose structure points.
"Savage, help me!" Asajj shouts. Shortly after, the hulking form of Savage steps up to Kit and prepares to attack.
"Hold on! I'm coming!" Bariss Offee exclaims, quickly running to help Kit and Nadhar.
Republic: 1 CIS: 0
"Charge!" Plo Koon shouts to his men as the clone reinforcements finally arrive to help the ninjas. Zane also completes his ritual, and a massive ice dragon soon appears!
Plo also uses his force powers to revive Kai.
"Thanks, I owe you one!" he replies.
(Blurry pic is Blurry) "You can't win, Asajj!" Kit tries to reason with Asajj.
"You fool! I'll never become a jedi pawn! Kill them Savage!"
Savage swings his enchanted vibro-ax at Kit, who is now in serious danger of losing all of his hit points.
The second tank droid is destroyed as the mighty AAT slowly glides closer...
"Ack!" cries Asajj as Bariss lunges at her from the side. "You...haven't seen....the last.....of us..."
"One down, one to go!" says Nadhar.
"Open Fire! Bring it down!" says Raptor as his men fire upon the last tank droid and, with the help of the ninjas, destroy it.
Zane and his dragon take to the air, and the dragon uses its breath weapon to instantly freeze a droid officer and heavy.
"Uh Oh!" says the droid officer as he spots the dragon, dropping his oil mug in the process. "Gunner, open fire on that...thing!"
The proton cannon fires, but due to the dragon's great agility, as well as the gunner's general stupidity and poor attack roll, the shot misses the dragon by a huge margin and instead flies across my room into my wall, leaving a huge, glowing hole. Thanks, guys...
A team of clone troopers and two ISP speeders unleash a torrent of blaster fire on the AAT, bringing down half its structure points in a single, massive blast.
Ben-Jammin rushes forward, and with a swipe from his vibroswords, slices the wheels off of the hailfire droid, disabling it.
"Well, that was satisfying..." he says.
Zane's dragon lands and kills one of the mercs with its powerful jaws. The remaining mercs open fire, dealing some structure damage.
The AAT fires its main gun at the clone squad, leaving only one survivor out of the whole group. One of the ISP speeders is also destroyed as a squad of battle droids open fire and annihilate it.
Bariss charges a line of super battle droids as Nadhar and Kit duel it out with Savage.
The titanic AT-TE finally sees some action as its powerful mass driver cannon vaporizes the AAT.
Bariss swiftly turns around and engages Savage. The brute then falls under the combined might of the three jedi.
"Oh yeah! Take that!" says Nadhar.
"Focus. The battle isn't over yet." says Kit to his eager apprentice.
Ben-Jammin and Plo Koon then assault the CIS proton cannon, killing its crew.
The ice dragon finishes off the last of the mercs, setting its sights on the nearby battle droids...
The last squad of battle droids then attack the ISP speeder, eager to make their final stand.
This is a grave mistake however, as the ISP turns and shreds the entire lot of them with a volley of blaster fire.
After the battle, Luminara and Bariss meet with commander Fox and Phoenix.
"You summoned us, commander?" asks Luminara.
"Yes ma'am. You asked us to recover Asajj Ventress and Savage Opress from the field?" he asks.
"Yes. Have you done so?" asks Luminara.
"That's the problem, ma'am." says Fox. "We went to recover and apprehend them, but once we arrived, they were no where to be found."
"Strange," Says Luminara, "Thank you for reporting this to me commander. You are dismissed."
"Yes ma'am." Says Fox and Phoenix simultaneously, and the two walk off.
"What does this mean, master?" asks Bariss.
"I'm not sure Bariss, but I don't like it one bit..." says Luminara, "I think there may be darker forces at work here..."
Elsewhere, Kit, Nadhar, and Plo Koon meet with Ben-Jammin and the ninjas to congratulate them and roast marshmellows. After the latter has been complete, Plo Koon speaks:
"You have done both the Republic and the jedi order a great service, and we surely won't forget it. We may have had conflicts in the past, but you have my thanks. I surely hope we can work together in the future as allies."
"Thank you for your gratitude," says Ben-Jammin "But me and my companions must be on our way."
"Yeah, we need to get back to Sensei," says Kai "Besides, its Zane's night to cook!"
"Oh man! Sweet, warm apple pie here we come!" says Jay, almost as enthusiastically as he was during the battle.
"I understand," says Plo Koon (although he's probably never tasted an apple pie in his life). "Until next time!"
Then the two groups depart.
