Mandalorians, a threat subsided

January 03rd, 2008 | Category: News

Long ago, lived a prosperous, strong, warrior race called the Mandalorians. This race lived for battle. Nomadic in nature, there was only one way to gain honor according to Mandalorians, through war and battle. When no war was happening, they were usually hired guns, so they could have honor no matter what. The leader of these people usually took the title of Mandalore. These people usually allied with the Sith faction, in fact the largest recruitment was done by Exar Kun, and much later the Mandalorian race would donate it’s own DNA to create Clone Troopers in the Clone Wars.


Mandalorians were a very straight forward society of Nomads. They were influenced by other planets and peoples of the galaxy. Mandalorians weren’t prejudice to any species, as long as they fought in battle and had kept Mandalorian Principles at heart.

Mandalorians were nomadic, even though they had a home world called Mandalore. The reason they kept being nomadic was for defensive purposes. If there was an attack, there would be no easy way to kill every Mandalorian. They also built no roads on Mandalore, making it easier to ambush invaders.

Mandalorians were seen as Individiuals, pinned together through the same culture. Each piece of armor was specially crafted for that Mandalorian and their level of skill. Their armor was seen as a cultural icon, and told a story about the Mandalorian in it. There was a saying the Mandalorian’s had “A warrior is more then his armor.” Meaning they relied on their armor, but they also relied on their skills as well.

Not all Mandalorians fought, some were farmers, factory workers, engineers, and doctors. All Mandalorians were warriors to the core, and knew how to fight.

There were six things the Mandalorians lived by. They were

1. Wearing Armor.

2.Speak Mando’a, the Mandalorian language.

3. Raise Children as Mandalorians

4. Defend Families and Themselves

5. Help the clan

6. Rally to the call of Mandalore


Mandalorians had another language other then Basic, called Mando’a. This was their main language, though they knew numerous others, because they fought on many planets and interacted with many different cultures, picking up their languages. The language was far more complex the Basic, and every word in Basic was given a word in Mando’a


The Mandalorians had their own religion, and at one time were very religious, but through fierce combat and other factors, they began to look at the galaxy more logical.
Brief History

These people were originally called Taung, a gray skinned near-human species. These were among the first sentients that battled for control of Coruscant. The Taung lost, and were exiled into Darkness. This exile caused them to rename themselves Warriors of the Shadow. The Warriors of the Shadow ran away to a planet called Roon, where they stayed until the rise of Mandalore the First. Under his leadership, they captured a planet and named it Mandalore, after him. After they took the planet over, they again renamed themselves Mandalorians. Under the name Mandalorians, they became known for using the most up to date and superior weaponry, making them feared across the galaxy.

The Mandalorians fought in many wars, and thus, someone should explain their role in them.

The Old Sith Wars: After they took over Mandalore the planet, they began to take over other planets, gaining foes and building a crusade against the galaxy. One planet they had interest in was the Empress Teta System, which was currently controlled by Krath, a secret society of Warriors that believed in magic (Only way to really describe them simply)

The Mandalorians had become allied with the Sith Faction under their newest leader Mandalore the Indomitable, who only joined the Sith after they beat him in combat wi th a famous warrior in the Sith ranks, Ullic Qel-Droma. Mandalore thought he was only pledging his allegiance to Ullic, but Ullic was an apprentice, therefore his Master gained Mandalore allegiance as well. Once they joined the Sith, the Mandalorians began taking over dozens of worlds. This hostile takeover got the Republic’s attention, which also got the attention of the Jedi, a now dead religious sect.

Exar Kun lost, even with the Mandalorians on his side, and ten years later, many Mandalorians were arrested and executed after a maniac bounty hunter called Jigger Wraith used Mandalorian technology that was seen as rare. The Mandalorians would come back together and reform under Mandalorian the Ultimate, and begin assembling large Mandalorian forces to make a come back. They would also reconstruct Dxun, a defense planet they had used previously. Once again, the Mandlorians were persuaded by Sith’s again, told they would gain great honor for facing the Republic.

The Mandalorian Crusaders were led by Mandalore The Great, and sparked the Mandalorian Wars. The Mandalorians now all wore the same armor, instead of wearing whatever they could scavenge. A famous Mandalorian, Canderous Ordo wore armor that was silver and black. They lost the war, thanks in large part to two Generals, Revan and Malak. Because of these two people, the Mandalorians were crushed, and were forced to decline into a state of hired guns once again. Revan had destroyed all their supplies, including their battle droids, and scattered the clans and tribes among the Outer Rim. Apparently a strong Mandalorian presence was on Tatooine at one point, but faded away.

Some Mandalorians became pirates, raiding locals on various planets to get by. Later on, Canderous Ordo would gain a small remnant force and try to reunite the Mandalorian clans once again on Dxun.

The New Sith Wars: During this War, the Mandalorians picked no side, instead attacking both the Jedi and Sith factions. They opposed the Sith, attacking The Underlord, the then Leader of the Sith, main camp, while the Jedi attacked other places, thus splintering his forces and making it easier on both the Mandalorians and the Jedi’s. Their plan worked, and a Sith general was assassinated by the Jedi’s general, later defecting to the Sith.

The current Mandalore of this era was deceived into a war, but the outcome of the war is still unknown, no one even knows who fought.

Later excavation at the Battle of Ambria showed Mandalorian armor, meaning either Mandalorians were there, or the Armor was purchased for its good quality.

With the New Sith War closing, the Mandalorians became more of a Mercenary culture, rather then a clan based culture.

The Mandalorian Civil War: 100 years before the Battle of Yavin, Durge (A Gen’Dai bounty hunter) had assassinated that era’s Mandalore. Mandalorians captured Durge, and tortured him severely, only to have him escape and heal through an induced hibernation.

With no leader, two factions emerged. The Death Watch, and The Loyalists. The Loyalists were led by Jaster Mereel, and the Death Watch under the leadership of Vizsla. They two split because Jaster wanted to reform their way of combat back to an honorable, less mercenary way. Eventually the war hit other places, like Concord Dawn.

At Concord Dawn, Vizsla tried to assassinate Jaster, however Jaster was saved by the now famous and notorious Bounty Hunter, Jango Fett, who Jaster took care of as a child. Later on, Jaster would be killed by Vizsla and another Mandalorian Bounty Hunter by the name of Montross, Jango’s arch nemesis. With Jaster dead, Jango took over as leader and Mandalore. His reign however, was cut short. A Jedi Task force was sent to exterminate the Mandalorians, and every Mandalorian was killed. Except for Jango. Dooku, leader of the task force, would later ask Jango to be the template for the clones during the Clone War.

Mandalorians still surprisingly survived, on different planets and such, but played little role in the galaxy and were little threat to the galaxy.

The Clone Wars: The Clone Wars gave rebirth to the Mandalorians. Jango Fett was the Prime Clone for the Kaminoans, therefore every clone was a Mandalorian. In fact, there were also Mandalorian Training Instructors, so the troopers would fight like Mandalorians as well. They were also instructed in the History of the Mandolrians.

Melee Weapons

January 03rd, 2008 | Category: News,Star Wars


Probably one of the more useful weapons in the Star Wars Universe. While the blaster and other such weapons are good for major combat and or fire fights, it is also good to have a few of these in hand. One can’t just depend souly on such things. If the weapon malfunctions the situation can turn deadly for the user. Also, if the opponent uses Melee Weapons they may have the advantage over say a blaster for close-range combat. There are many different kind of Melee weapons such as follows…

The Vibroblade – These range anything from swords to ax’s and normally in the hilt there is a ultrasonic piece of equipment that made the weapons(s) vibrate at an extreme rate. So even the slightest hit could do some major damage.


Electrostaff – These had electromagnetic pulse-generating tips and were lightsaber resistant. Most people recognise these from Star Wars Revenge of the Sith. Used by the MagnaGaurds that Obi-Wan and Anakin fought against during the clone wars. Not the greatest melee weapon out there sense theses were more used for blunt-force.


Stun baton – These look more like a short stick to beat on someone. It is a short range weapon that requires that the user have to get close enough to touch his/her opponent. It would then give off an electric shock to stun them. So it was used more to control someone. Much like in real life with say a tazer.



There’s many more different weapons out there. These are just a few of them listed. Each one has it’s personal uses and range of pain or death. The use of such weapons can be found just about anywhere in the Universe.

Evolution of the Droids

January 02nd, 2008 | Category: News

Droids are robotic beings usually having Artificial Intelligence, used for a variety of different jobs and suited for different environments. Most of the jobs the droids do are either simple and time consuming or too dangerous for humans or other sentient life, or certain fields that need a mastery and specialization of the topic at hand, liked Medic Droids and small Astromech’s.

Depending on the type of Droid, they were obedient, loyal, durable, usually were experts with mathematics and had excellent memory. These personality traits made them great for many jobs, though some weren’t independent and you had to watch over them to make sure they didn’t mess up.

Droid designers did face a small problem, the question of how far to take the droids intelligence. Make them too intelligent, and they become self aware, not intelligent enough and they don’t have a high degree of Artificial Intelligence.

There are 5 degrees of Droids.

1st Degree Droid: Droids capable of being independent and could think on their own. Usually used for Medics, and some advanced, expensive Assassin Droids. Droids that were made to torture people also fell under this category, and droids that were designed for someone that had a high degree of artifical intelligence did as well.

2nd Degree: Usually engineering or technical droids, this degree consisted of Astromech and utility droids. Pilot Droids, Scout Droids, and Probe droids fit under this category as well.

3rd Degree: Protocol Droids, policital, social, or scholarly droids fall in this Degree.
4th Degree: Security or Military Droids, the Trade Federation used many 4th Degree droids during the Clone Wars.

5th Degree: Simple labor droids, like Binary Load Lifters. Usually used for mining, cleaning, and other labor tasks.

As with different degrees, there are also different types. Usually model, personality, and job make up the type of droid it is. Some droids can’t fit under one type, because they do many different jobs, or they were custom built, like HRD’s (Human Replica Droids) Also, what droids did under different owners may change their type, but this was not always the case.

Assassin Droids: Used to kill, like their name suggests. Often employed when other means haven’t worked, also employed when a bounty hunter didn’t want to die, like a suicide mission. These droids could be programmed with advanced protocols and algorithm’s making them better then some human or other life forms at fighting. These types were most often to rebel.

Notable Assassin Droids: C-3PX, 4-LOM, Guri, IG-88, and HK-47

Astromech Droids: These droids were used to repair starships and other mechanical objects. They also could break into security, access computer panels, navigate a ship through hyperspace, store data, and check for damages. These droids were loaded with things that would be very useful to pilots, supplementing the ships own computer and helping the pilot with navigation and repair. Advanced models could actually fly their own starships for periods of time. The main drawback to these droids is the lack of a vocabulator unit, thus having to use a series of beeps to communicate.

Notable Astromechs: R2-D2, Fiver, R4-P17, R5-D4, T3-M4, Whistler, and Shaker.

Battle Droids: These were used as Soldiers during the Clone War for the CIS, they had many advantages over sentient life in battle. Droids could carry heavy weaponry, could carry shielding, move quickly without gaining fatigue, analyze targeting and determine the path of their shots (AKA increased accuracy), calculate chances of winning a battle instantly. Droids would follow orders without question, even if the Order was flawed, taking risks that would scare most humans and other species away, and the droids were expendable, the time it took to actually make a droid army was a shadow of the time it took to raise a Human army. These droids were usually made in bulk, and made on assembly lines, cutting the cost of them even further. The major drawback of Battle droids were, they only worked with a good strategy, they had horrible artificial intelligence.

Interrogation/Torture Droids: These droids were surprisingly meant to save humans. Save them from having to torture another human and possibly scarring themselves. It was practical in many ways, it increased the targets fear, increasing the possibility of a confession, Droids could tell if they were telling the truth, and usually had a complete set of pressure points and painful spots downloaded into it’s system. They also had truth serum on hand, and knew correct doses to get the information they wanted. Later on, a friendly captor would come by, offering sadness and promise to make the pain stop for the information they sought. The plan was genius.

Medical Droids: These droids were meant to heal, they were often better then the Human or Sentient counterpart because they would never forget their Medical Programming, therefore usually never prescribing something wrong. They could also store information on numerous patients, saving money on Computer Database Files. Med Droids wouldn’t let emotion get in the way of their tasks, but at the same time couldn’t sympathize with their patients at all, therefore sometimes making the patient feel worse.

Pilot Droids: Droids were used to fly starships and other crafts. These were the pilots for the CIS during the Clone Wars, they were also used to drive crafts on planets, like Shuttles and other things. Droids were great as pilots because they would know their ship, wouldn’t panic in the middle of a dog fight, could maintain close formations and execute attack plans perfectly, and would know the computer of the ship as well.

Protocol Droids: These droids were meant to aid with politics and other social affairs, as well as translate any language needed. They were programmed with enhanced aural sensors, so they could analyze and describe and use the information that was needed in certain situations. Because Sentient life interacted with these types of Droids, they were often given personalities so they weren’t as boring as some other droids.

Scout Droids: Droids were used in exploration or for hunting a target. They were cheap and expendable, like most droids. These droids were usually dropped in bulk, ranging any where from a hundred to a thousand, and would use do a survey of the area and report back on their findings.

Droids are seen as property, but the more advanced a droid you are, the more respect you would get by Sentients. Some think Droids are a legal way for slavery, but usually this argument is put down by stating that no droid is sentient. The Naboo think of Droids with a high enough Artificial Intelligence to be, in fact, citizens.

Star Wars or Anime?

January 02nd, 2008 | Category: News,Star Wars


What’s better? Anime or the wonderfully epic story that George Lucas has given us all? Each has it’s perks and for some there’s no question about having to ask such a thing. However, let us compare them and see…

Anime originated from Japan as many have known. Anime started back in the twentieth century but didn’t really hit the United States until 1980’s when the Gundam series hit. Other shows soon followed such as Dragon Ball Z and Sailor moon. Now today more and more shows are more like the Japan animation. With shows such as Pokemon, and Inu Yasha as many people’s favorites. There’s a never ending stream of merchandise to be bought over many stores and even online.


AnimeNation is the best and leading source to get anything a person could want in the Anime World. T-shirts, key chains, snacks, drinks exc… The list goes on. Manga is available as well and you can even find items that you couldn’t’t get in a store. If it’s information your after.. other then using the on-line Wiki there is the Anime News Network.

There are hundreds of sites linking to different Anime talks, chats, and even conventions. On more then one occasion I’m sure someone has seen someone dressed up in some sort of costume from a favorite series. Going to a convention is one good way to see them. Not only would you find Anime costumers but others as well from a vast sea of fantasy and Sci-fi. Anime has taken such a foothold that it has been expanded to draw up favorite characters to see what they would look like if they were anime. Such as the Futurerama gang and Star wars.

futurama_as_anime.jpg       swmeb1.jpg

Which now comes to the next section and another popular part of the World. Star Wars! Who would have imagined that back when the first movie came out that it would explode to become such apart of the American culture and the culture of many around the world. Video games, TV shows, Conventions, toys and clubs. Heck former President Ronald Reagan had used the name Star Wars for the Strategic Defense Initiative until the name was changed in 1993 by Former President Bill Clinton. Just like the anime, there is as much to buy out on the market for Star wars as anything else. With mass roll playing forums and even on-line games such as Galaxies’s and Empire at War.

Back in 1997 Albin Johnson started the now world wide costume fan group known as the 501st Legion or Vader’s Fist. What started out as a small group became so large that it expands in countries such as Japan and Asia. Members of the 501st Legion often make appearances at casual, promotional, and charitable events. A non-profit group the 501st also has close ties with the Lucas film.

picture-053.jpg     4qi8l6h.jpg


The Legion itself also has it’s territory assigned. The united States for instance has the states assigned in groups to for a Garrison. Each Garrison has a name and their own set of on line boards to communicate. A few examples are Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas. They are grouped together to form Star Garrison. Florida is known as Florida Garrison but has several squads due to how large/long of a state it is. The main on-line source for the 501st is :

From that site there is access to find the links to each Garrison. The Legion is well known and has been around now for ten years and is still growing. Recently, Two new Garrisons were formed in the United States. Alabama broke off to become their own Garrison and Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi became MidSouth Garrison. The Legion has also helped influence the Star wars universe as the name was taken to be added to the Clone group in Revenge of the Sith and in the Battlefront II game. Because of the what Star Wars has done for the world and the impact of this group there has also been done a special documentary about them. Called Heart of an Empire it has shown in film festivals across the United states and was aired at the last years Star Wars convention.

Anime or Star Wars? Both are great and have lots of world influence. Both have impacted peoples lives in either small or great doses. There is much more information then can be put into words on how a person feels about each. Some like one or the other. What is decided is based off each person. Anime junkie, Star wars geek, or both. This isn’t even half the information that could be found, as to place it all would be a very large book indeed.


Pictures were taken off my computer and found off of google images. The actual real pictures are from actual charity events that I attended.

Delta Squad, a Look into History

January 02nd, 2008 | Category: News

This squad of Clone Troopers consisted of four clone troopers, RC-1138, RC-1140, RC-1207, RC-1262, their base of operations was on Kamino, and they were instrumental in numerous battles, mostly Battle of Genosis and Battle of Kashyyyk.

Each one of these troopers had a nickname:

RC-1138 was Boss, the Leader of the Sqaud
RC-1140 was Fixer, The Slicer of the squad
RC-1207 was Sev, The Sniper of the Squad
RC-1262 was Scorch, and the Demolition Man of the Squad
Their training was hard, because they were trained by a Mandalorian named Vau, who thought the only way to be trained was hard, so he broke their backs, figuratively, everyday. Whenever Vau thought a trooper wasn’t as fierce or hard as they could be, he made them fight another squad mate or himself. The only commando to ever chose Vau was Boss. Vau’s training worked, even though he was a vicious and ruthless leader.
Their first mission ever was in the Battle of Genosis. They were all flown in separately, and each squad had to team up before they completed their main objective, kill Sun Fac, the Genosian leader. Boss and Scorch teamed up first, and decided to go into a Hive that was supposed to house Sun Fac. They had to blow up a vent to get into the hive, and as the did they found another of their squad, Fixer, who was rampaging and was killing numerous droids. They fought their way to a balcony in the complex, and after fighting, they climbed down the balcony, finding their team mate Sev, who was killing enemy soldiers, something he excelled at.
They killed all resistance, and entered a room that was directly next to way they were. Sun Fac saw them enter, and fled to his ship. The Delta Squad began to fire at many droids in the room, when done with them, they began to shoot down Sun Fac’s ship, killing him when it came down. After that, they had to clean up another squad’s mess since they failed at blowing up a droid facility. After blowing up the facility, they stole launch codes and stopped a lot of CIS ships (Confederacy of Independent Systems) from leaving.

Their next mission was to investigate a mysterious ship that had disappeared and then reappeared into known space. The ship in question was the Prosecutor, an Acclamator-Class ship of the Republic. They were once again dropped off individually so they could cover a larger area. They quickly discovered that the ship had been taking over by Trandoshans (reptilian species that is now in the Slave business) Two of the 4 squad members were captured, but saved by Boss and Fixer quickly. They destroyed the Trandoshan resistance, and prevented CIS members to board the ship. Later on, they would discover that the Trandoshans were going to sell the ship to the CIS to get Battle Droids.

A later mission was the Battle of Coruscant, this mission wasn’t actually authorized, and were put into Omega Squad, a less competitive squad, and Delta Squad had trouble adapting to the atmosphere. The mission was successful and the Terrorist attack was unsuccessful. Another mission was an easy dismantle mission, no big deal for a squad such as Delta.

Their last known mission was the Battle of Kashyyyk. The squad was supposed to gather intelligence on the area and for enemy activity. Once again, Trandoshans were helping CIS members, so they had to destroy them, and free any wookiee they found. They found many wookiees, including Tarrful, the Wookiee Leader. The CIS had reinforcements come, and it took 4 turrets to take the ship down. This mission was the same mission where Sev was attacked, and captured. The squad wasn’t sure whether to save their squad mate and brother or follow orders, they picked following orders, since brotherhood came second, Duty came first. After leaving the planet, they were told the real reason of their mission, it was to find a way to invade a planet.

This is a brief history of the squad.

Better then Twi’leks?

January 01st, 2008 | Category: News,Star Wars

Another zeltron female


When you’ve been in this business as long as I have, you learn a few things: Nothing’s more dangerous than arguing with a Wookiee, nothing’s more foolish than gambling with a Jedi, and nothing’s more alluring than a Twi’lek dancer. But I’m here to tell you that last one is wrong. If you like your humanoids flexible, svelte, enthusiastic, and in multiple shades of red, then the most beautiful people in the galaxy are on Zeltros. Who needs Twi’leks?” ―Ruudi Buundaz 

 Zeltron female

As quoted there by the near human species called the Zeltron. Thee most physically visible trait that separates them from the humans is by their skin and hair. It ranges in different shades of red, from almost white to pink to deep red. Humans considered them Highly attractive. Even the near humans and others alike agreed


Zeltrons are also be considered a new species based of the human genre instead of being  considered another sort of alein.. They possessed three traits.The first was that all could produce pheromones ( chemicals secreted by one life-form to influence the behavior of other lifeforms, most often to attract members of the opposite sex. Prince Xizor of the race of Falleen is another that has this abailty.)

The secondwas that they could  project their emotions into their target or whatever. Thus adding a type of control on the subject (kinda scary). The third is their empathic ability, allowing them to read and even feel the emotions of others, becoming highly useful in certain situations.


 Their home world of Zeltros is known as a luxury world “party planet”. If anyone wasn’t having a good time on Zeltros.. well lets say they would know it and make sure whatever was wrong was taken care of. In other words.. perhaps the best sort of correction that one could have..


Now their culture is at most very interesting.The Zeltrons are highly influenced by sexuality and pursuit of pleasure in general. Most of their art and books were devoted to it.. It was natural to them then to many others who probably found their way of life to be revolting.. If their different shade of skin color or hair wasn’t an indication that you have ran into one of the species, their clothing certainly is a dead give away. They dress in high wild colors for the evening such as bright shades of diffrent neon colors that would hurt the eyes; as well as wild patterns and shapes on their clothing.


A few of the most famous Zeltrons are as follows:


Luxa –Luxa

Worked for the Exchange’s branch on Citadel Station over Telos IV. She was a high-ranking member who reported directly to Loppak Slusk.

Dani -adventurer and a master thief as well as once was a once a member of the Rik Duel gang


Unnamed Zeltron Sith General of the Dark Underlord – member of the Black Knights under the command of the Sith Lord known as the Dark Underlord, he faced Mandalorian mercenaries who intruded upon the Underlord’s fortress on Malrev IV.

Unnamed Zeltron Sith General of the Dark Underlord




So the question asked in the end, are the Zeltrons better then the Twi’leks? You as the reader will have to decide….

Falleens and their Society

January 01st, 2008 | Category: News

Prince Xizor

The Falleen is a sentient species native to the planet Falleen. These humanoid’s are known mostly for their pheromones, which they are legendary for being irresistable to the opposite sex, other species, and even the same sex. The Falleen are known to live for around 250 years, they are reptilian in nature, making them cold-blooded. The Falleen were also partially aquatic, allowing them to hold their breath for long periods of time, having some believe that their ancestors were completely aquatic. Some believe that the Falleen have some sort of mammal ancestor, since they have breasts and other mammal traits. The species blood wasn’t red, like humans and some other species, instead it was green. The Falleen have small scales all over their body, clawed feet and hands, and prominent facial and spinal ridges, these were often smaller in females.
The Falleens were excellent at hiding their emotions. Their features were sleek, making them one of the most gorgeous species in the galaxy. Also, they Falleens were resistant to some mind control methods, making them a dangerous foe. Another fun fact is that the Falleen had the ability to change skin color from green to red, the purpose is to display moods, but the species mastered how to change it willingly long ago, using it as a covert weapon in war and politics, allowing them to put on great game faces, appearing calm when they really weren’t.

Society of the Falleen

The Falleen society was feudal in nature (Meaning the noble houses ruled over lower classes) Falleen’s upper class and monarchies was filled with arguments and politics, but they settled it before it went to war usually. The Falleen respected discipline and control, mostly self control. They are a very patient race, and shun public displays of emotion, they usually looked down upon the openly passionate ones of their society, seeing them as having a lack of self-control. They hold themselves superior to all other species, since they have enormous discipline and self control. This led most Falleen to believe that their homeworld was the capital for cultural and civilized society. This led them to be isolationist in nature.

Falleen nobles often traveled the galaxy, doing little good since it just made them think of themselves as superior and wish to return home. Even though they feel superior they are die hard followers of the Galactic Empire.

Famous Falleens

Xizor, leader of The Black Sun
Obs Kaj, Follower of a now defunct religious cult
Xist, a Black Sun Vigo (Top Leader of the Black Sun, answers only to Xizor
Xishel, A Treasure Hunter
, Intel Gather for the Bothan Information System
Zennex, Crime Lord on the Wheel Space Station
Zurros, Senator of the Galatic Republic
Thann Mithric, also a follower in a now defunct religious sect
Zule Xiss, Another Follower in a now defunct religious sect
Zuur, Tried to assassinate Darth Vader
Savan, Niece of Prince Xizor, and member of Falleen Royal Family
Kamlin, yet again, another follower of the now defunct religious sect
Livinitus Sazent, Intelligence Operative for the Galactic Republic

An Imperial research facility located in a major Falleen City was researching bioweapons, an accident happened and the populous got infected by it. The Imperial Army killed 200,000 Falleens to contain the virus, most of which were related to the Royal Family.

Falleens learn to speak Basic as the leave, but speak Falleen while they are on their home planet Falleen, mostly populated by Falleens.

A Little Fact/History of the Blaster

January 01st, 2008 | Category: News,Star Wars

Now we all know what a blaster is. A  really cool weapon that fires out  blaster bolts from a  power cell.  It is the most common weapon used in the Galaxy. The oldest known type of blaster was used by some kind of old droid. The model is not known but it was  employed by the Rakatan Inifinite Empire. That weapon was actualy considered the best and up-to-date when it was made.

Other then that the oldest blaster by far was the tripple Blaster. It worked by using three separate blasters connected to the system,and fired at a target. However by the rise of the Empire these weapons had become extreamly rare. Prior to this weapon beam tubes were used.They consisted of backpacks with a hose coming out of the side. All of the equipment that was used to create the blaster beam in the backpack and was fired out of the hose. By the time the Empire had rosen to power the blaster in itself was the most commonly used weapon. Not only did the military use  the blaster but also by civilians as well for protection. Places such on Tattooine over in the Cantina were these items were supposadly not allowed. Actually,  it was commonly  shoutd out “No blasters” when a fight broke out. Not that anyone ever listened to begin with

Corporation’s Stop making new HK’s, A brief look at History

January 01st, 2008 | Category: News,Star Wars Role Playing,Star Wars Trivia

The known HK (Hunter Killer) droids have stopped being made.  Apparently the newest unit HK-77 was recalled because it was short circuiting whenever it accessed it’s advanced programming on rifles.  After the HK Corporation fixed the faulty programming, it did a full diagnostic’s check on the Droid.  Apparently, the Droid’s were unsafe near children, targeting them for being potential threats.

HK-Series Assassin Droid’s were Assassin droids designed to look and speak like Protocol Droid.  Having the same language function as a Protocol droid, they doubled as such.  The HK Droids took pride in what they did.  Some even developed personalities that were Sociopathic or sadistic.  Others never really thought Independently and were usually just Protocol Droids.

Assassin Droids were made illegal to purchase in large quantities a long time ago.  People looking to buy Assassin droids can still buy them for Personal use, mainly only buying one or two. The HK models are one of the oldest Models still in use, the first called HK-01.

HK-01 was more of a prototype, to see if there were any logistical errors.  There was, HK-01 had developed his own personality and became self aware and tried to start a Droid Rebellion.  He “fixed” droids so that they would attack sentient “meatbags” (the HK’s word for Human or Sentient life) on sight.  The Old Republic put it down, although it lasted for some time.

The next model was was HK-24.  Most of these models were purchased by Adascorp to find and retrieve a man by the name of Gorman Vandrayk (a mechanic on the run with a fugitive) and used for security personnel on the ship Arkanian Legacy.  The HK-24 model seemed to be fine, and only reason it was replaced was for improvements.

The next model was  HK-47.  This model was the most famous model, since it did many things that benefited the galaxy.  This droid was constructed for hunting a certain religious sect that doesn’t exist anymore, it helped protect the Old Republic, but it also tried to take over the Galaxy, starting with Mustafar a few years ago.   HK-47 had a few personality traits and flaws that weren’t common in other HK droids.  He loved to kill, almost to excessive tendencies, The Droid also thought he was vastly superior to all other Droids and all other life forms, and another odd trait that now all HK Units seem to share was his speech.  He would add a label onto all his sentences.  This model was mistaken for a Protocol droid the most, so much in fact that he called his Assassination programs, his “Assassination Protocols” .  This model also described love and some other words falsely, saying that love was shooting someone in the knee caps with a sniper rifle.

The next model was HK-50, the exact thing as HK-47 just more having more programs and a self destruct sequence.  Another HK model was made called the HK-51, nearly identical to HK-50 only more adept at killing members of a certain religious cult
The HK model should have ended exclusively there.  However, HK-47 had survived 3000 years on Mustafar.  He created 3 other Models,  HK-58 Aurek, HK-58 Besh, and HK-77, each one designed to do something else.

~To know a Gen’Dai ~

January 01st, 2008 | Category: News,Star Wars

This would be one species that is probably the most intresting by far. The Gen’Dai were a seemingly immortal species with distributed nervous and vascular systems.  They Lacked  the vulnerable vital organs that most races needed to survive.  These included the brain, lungs and naturally the heart.  The species was even known  to take  major hits that would kill most anything else  and survive. Among one thing they could survive was total dismemberment. So unles someone could vaporise them  they would live. Though many of the species if taken that hard of a hit it eould be a while before they could get up and fight. They would go into hibernation until the major injuries would heal or be regenerated.

Now no one knows were the homeworld is or was. It had been lost a long time ago. It’s also not stated wether they live on one planet another. That information seems to have been lost. Most of this species are non-aggressive save one name that comes up in the history chronicles.  The average years of life that a Gen’Dai can live is up to four-thousand years. Some can even live and have been known to live up to seven-thousand years making them look  as if they are immortal. Because of this as they age, their minds would weaken and would be left open for mental diseases. Another intresting fact is due to the nature of their nervous systems, they had very good senses, and are able to feel a Human‘s heartbeat from ranges of up to 200 meters.

The most well known Gen’Dai was the bounty hunter and CIS commander, Durge. One of his more intresting  quotes gives a little more on how he looked at the universe.


I was once buried alive—for 60 years! If that didn’t kill me… if the Sith and the Mandalorians and the Bloodboilers of Kragis couldn’t kill me—then you won’t kill me!“―Durge



Durge was a bounty hunter in the galaxy for a good number of years. Two thousand years to be more precise. Durge was able to survive several near-death situations  due to his species regeneration and his armor that was highly enhanced. But that’s getting ahead  so we need to start from his early life and work on how he became involved in several major wars and made a name for himself.


In his early life Durge was in great Physical shape but he also had a natural aggression uncharacteristic of the Gen’Dai species. When he had watched some bounty hunters in action this had  filled him with love or a lust for the hunt. He would then one day leave his tribe and had ventured out to be trained under various bounty hunters. It wasn’t until he met the Madalorian training master Jaing, who taught him everything  he needed to know in the feild of the madalorian combat and tactics skills.


At some point, Durge was  approached by a doctor  who offered to complement their bodies and armor suits with advanced cybernetics. Durge traveled to his  lab on an unknown planet, where he was  introduced to a woman who  who had been disabled to the point where she needed cybernetic enhancements to function. The female had talked Durge into taking in the same technology that kept her alive. Jaing was also there with Durge and both decided to take the risk and let them have it done. Thinking that it would make them more powerfull in battle the risk as a whole was worth it to them.After recovering, Durge and Jaing tested out their new abilities in a sparring match.As they were battling, a group of Mandalorians loyal to Ung Kusp attacked. The doctor that had initially brought them to the lab ordered them to fight the Mandalorians to pay back the debt they owed.In the middle of the battle Jaing was taken out and thought dead by a thermal detonator.Durge, thinking that his friend was dead had left to chase after the remaining Mandalorians, more specific Mandalore himself. After he had left the doctor had gone to Jang who was now dying and revealed to him that the whole point of them being there was to spark a war with the Sith and all the Mandalorian clans.


Further exploits

Durge fought for the Sith in the New Sith War. He faced  several Jedi in combat and learned  their techniques. Durge then became experienced at killing them. In order to avoid the Jedi reprisals, he  went into hiding after the Sith’s defeat at the Seventh Battle of Ruusan.

 He however, did continue  to hunt under a series of aliases and false names, earning the ire of the Bloodboilers of Kragis. Yet his most fateful mission came in 100 BB. Durge was hired to kill the then-Mandalore. Durge compleated the mission , but was captured by the Mandalorians and tortured. In the amount of time they had him the torture  slowly drove him past the edge and into insanity. Durge eventually was able to escape his captors but it took alot of time to regenerate. Nearly a century, and sixty of the years he spent buried underground.

Once he resurfaced, Durge ended up hired by count Dooku to go hunt down Boba Fett. iIs search ended up with him on Tattooine a couple months down the road. By that time Durge ended up taking another bounty by Jabba Desilijic Tiure. He eventually met up with Fett and tried to kill him. Not suceeding as the young man escaped he went back to Jabba and found out that the Hutt had assigned Fett to the same bounty he was on! After knocking Fetts helmet off Jabba halted the fight. Jabba, wanting to give Fett a short lead on the bounty gave Durge another task to hunt down combat archanids, while the young hunter left. In the end they both met up as Durge had quickly took care of the first task.The chase led them both into the heart of Libkath’s operations. After a long  fight, Fett fired at an air tank, blowing up both Durge and Libkath. Needless to say Fett became his number one on his list afterwards.

I will sharpen my teeth upon this boy’s bones!” ―Durge, referring to Boba Fett 

Not long after that blast he was back to work. This time he was paired up with Asajj Ventress on one of Naboo’s moons. They tested a new chemical that became very effective on killing Gungans and thus then started to plan for a full scale effort against the Gungans on Naboo. Soon after a strike team with Jedi Obi-wan, Anakin, Glaive and  Zule Xiss arrived to invistigate. Durge, who was very eager to battle Jedi again revealed himself to the Jedi and even clubbed Obi-wan down with his magna bolas. Durge continued to attack the three other Jedi despite having been stabbed in the gut with a Lightsaber. Seconds later he was shot in the eye by one of the clones and was forced to call Ventress in for backup. As she fought Obi-wan he was preparing to to shoot the Jedi in the head when he was attacked by one of the other Jedi and sustained yet again another Lightsaber wound. Ventress then ordered him to flee and make sure that the swamp gas plan went as planned. Yet when he got back he saw the shuttles meant to bear the toxin destroyed. Angered that the plan was foiled by the clone Mandalorian Alpha-17 he threw him into the fire. Anakin Skywalker then  hit him from the side with his own magna bolas. Shocked and injured, Durge fled the battle, vowing to kill Skywalker later down the road.


You know, it’s been over a century since I killed a Jedi… and today, I’ll get to kill four of you. Add that to the Gungans I already murdered, the hostages I’m going to kill later, and all the Naboo who will die tomorrow, and it’s a damn good week.” ―Durge 



After that defeat both Ventress and Durge knew the Jedi would want to find the source of the swamp gas. So they set up a trap on volcanic planet Queyta. To lure in the Jedi they used the antidote for the gas to lure them into an abandoned factory on a lava river, filled with Skakoans. The Skakoans were strapped with explosives and they thought that whatever the Jedi threw at them they could kill between them and the creatures in the lava. The Jedi did show up and as soon as they were known  Durge shot one of the Skakoans, causing a mass explosion and severely damaging the factory, sending it sinking into the lava. One of the Jedi used the force to absorb most of the explosion and took her own life to do it. In the end only one Jedi remained, Obi-Wan who had the antidote…


Near the end of the Clone Wars Durge was able to Lure Obi-Wan and Anakin into a trap in the Karthakk system.Kenobi was  searching for  Ventress, whom Anakin had defeated earlier in the war. Near the planet Maramere, Durge took a large number of battle droids and  killed the entire crew of a ship. Kenobi was then lead  into believing he would encounter Ventress on the ship.

 Both the Jedi  Boarding the ship,where  they started to head towards the bridge, where they were almost blown up by a thermal detonator. Obi-wan took a hard hit fromt he explosion and then  Durge immediately appeared,attacking the wounded Jedi. He was stopped by Anakin , who used the Force to impale Durge on hundreds of jagged metal pieces. He  shrugged this off as if it wasn’t a big deal , but was electrocuted from behind by Kenobi. Durge then started  to trigger some of the many explosive devices with which he had placed all over the ship.As Obi-wan ran off to look for clues to Ventress’s whereabouts Anakin started to fight Durge one on one.

Durge naturally was stronger then Anakin and overtook him. Yet he was severly hurt  when the Jedi  used the Force and sent  a large amount of the explosives at the Gen’Dai. One of the explosions took of his helmet and that sent him over the edge and into a dark fury. Anakin used just that and ended up forcing Durge into an escape pod. Again, using the force he was able to jetoson the pod and guide it into the Maramere’s star and thus defeated  Durge. 



Now it wasn’t clear but some say that durge hadn’t really died. 1.5 ABY a group of scientists were were assigned to “Project Durge,” an attempt to repair a grievously injured being. The scientistswern’t told any information as to the origins of the life form. One of the scientists  was astounded at the way the being was recovering once they had started to put the thing back together. Sccess fufilled as they  revived “Project Durge,” yet they couldn’t restore it to what it looked like before. They then equiped the being with a suit of heavy battle armor. “Project Durge” eventually escaped  and started collecting bounties once more. After beating one of Boba Fett’s associates to a bounty, the bounty hunter  ordered his associate to track down “Project Durge” and destroy it. Doing as he was orderd he defeated “Durge” on Naboo. Boba though had a feeling that he hadn’t seen the last of Durge.



So have we trule seen the last of this Gen’Dai? Agreeing with Fett I am sure somewhere out there the bounty hunter lays in wait. Probably regenerating and waiting for the perfect time to come back to his blood lust for killing. All I can say is that these are intresting creatures  and god willing no one in the VE ever has to face them. Taking in all read here it would take a lot of fire power to even kill on of these guys. Making an enemy from one such as Durge wouldn’t be a good idea…..
