((I forgot about rewards! Since this was an Encounter, only XP is awarded. Normally since the MagnaGuards are more than 5 levels below you I would award 1/10th the XP for it, but since this was the tutorial I'll give full XP regardless. Everyone receives 2400XP.))

Lucifer considered the question and formulated an answer, as best he was able when he heard Xaos speak.
"A good question my Dark Lord. I am not certain of that or even as to how many more may have been compromised...our best bet is probably to sweep the ship and ensure it is secure before we consider moving it. Perhaps Tora might know the answer to your initial question however."
"We have neither the time nor the manpower on hand to properly inspect a vessel of this size," Xaos responded to Lucifer, "But I doubt any more of the droids are compromised. By Venaris' own admission he turned the MagnaGuards against us by incorrectly entering a security code, I do not believe he has had the opportunity to perform sabotage so intricate as you suspect. I want you to find, reactivate and gather as many droids as are needed to crew this bridge. Once they are assembled a course shall be set for Wild Space, we must rendezvous with Choronu and the fleet. I expect this to be accomplished within the hour. Reaver, while Lucifer takes care of that, I think it's probably best if you go check on your new Apprentice; perhaps ascertain the truth of some of Lucifer's concerns from him once he comes to."
Xaos paused for a moment and looked more deeply into the space beyond the bridge, "My friends, our time lurking in the shadows of distant stars will soon be coming to an end. Now we shall reclaim our old places as conquerors and rulers."
Reaver bowed his head in acquiescence, "My Lord" he said then span on his toes and headed back out into the corridor where they had left Kairos. He looked down at the huddled figure on the deck plates "Ok apprentice. Apparently the Dark Lord wishes me to teach you what I know. You have some skill, you may survive the training. First things first however, you are going to tell me, everything you have done on this ship in an attempt to kill us, how many more droids are poised to attack us on sight. I am going to get the answers I need, one way or another. The only question is, how unpleasant an experience it will be for you. You have some brains. Use them, and whilst you are considering your answer, also consider we are offering to train you, to show you the skills we have. Think how those skills could benfit your plans."
Reaver's Sense Motive at +19 against DC25: P8QYFrEQp_1d20+19
It was apparent to Reaver the younger man was telling the truth, both about the ship's traps and his newfound loyalty. And yet Reaver suspected that his motivations stemmed not from a newfound loyalty, but a newfound fear of the power of the Sith, and a desire to claim it for his own.1d20+19

And so it begins.
This was the thought that crossed Lucifer's mind as he departed, his search of the ship begun for any other droids that could be found and reprogrammed and reactivated, gathered as to crew the bridge per his instructions. Wild Space awaited them and destiny.
He left a few departing words.
"As you command Sith'ari. I have awaited this moment for millenia...it is long overdue. May our victories be many and swift. May the Dark guide us."
He begun by searching close by, before extending his search further a field.

Darth Xaos: I've added a character guide to the first post of the Rise of the New Sith Brotherhood thread; figured it might be useful since I'm rapidly approaching HBO-like numbers of major characters in this thing. lol

Darth Xaos: @ Xyr: That would be awesome, you should!
Jan 13, 2020 23:31:57 GMT
Darth Xaos: @ Sampaga: Raziel has an account here but he only ever dropped by to say hi, he RPs pretty much only on Facebook these days. Byss' player had a different character on the site this community was on right before this one but it's been a while since.

Darth Sampaga: that was some great stuff wow what a history you guys have here is raziel or darth byss here too ?

Darth Xaos: I'm gonna try to make the gap until the next one much less. Though I crunched the numbers, and I've got an averaged rate that's basically a chapter or interlude once per year, even despite this recent 3 year gap.

Darth Kairos: Only way it could have been worth it is if the bit with the Blazing Chain had included a forty page epic about how in a few decades time a certain Sith Lord would annihilate them with brilliant tactics and amazing wit.
Jan 8, 2020 7:20:44 GMT
Darth Kairos: Well...no. But it was pretty good all the same.
Jan 8, 2020 7:20:07 GMT
Darth Xaos: Thanks, mate, I appreciate it. Though was it worth the wait of the three year gap since the last chapter? lol

Darth Kairos: As always, brilliant work my old friend. The way you balance intrigue and drama with a healthy dose of tense combat always gets me excited. And watching Trivas' slide into greater and greater acts of evil is gripping.

Darth Xaos: @ Sampaga: Rise of NSB is a fanfiction I've been writing over the years (and continue to write despite us closing down) fictionalizing the events of the old communities, going all the way back to sithorder.com and sithcouncil.com.
