  • Evil is my hobby, Anger is my life.

    Posted by Keagle on 08-09-2002 02:33 AM:
    Evil is my hobby, Anger is my life.

    The dark wooden doors of the recruitment chamber swung open, knocking against the frame. The sound echoed around the room. A figure of average height stepped through it, out of the eerie light, and into the dark room. The light from outside shone onto the mist inside, revealing a beam of light, reaching only three metres inside.

    He was, wearing a black cloak, wrapped around his shoulders, and a hood draped over his head. Underneath it he wore black robes. He was indeed draped in darkness.

    Summoning the force, he focused on the doors, and there was a loud thud as they shut tightly.He swooped confidently into the room.
    The man could almost be mistaken for a shadow, had there been nothing it belonged to.

    As he entered the room, his eyes took a second to adjust to the light - or lack of it.

    He looked around, expecting to see walls, but saw that there were none - merely shadows. The confidence henhad in this place began to diminish, as he saw no-one to greet him. He was so sure this was the place...

    But it was too late now. He couldn't back off. He continued on his journey to the centre of the room, where he could see a small piece of ground, lighter in colour than the rest. It looked almost like a spotlight.

    He opened his mouth, but closed it again. He felt uneasy speaking to the shadows. He didn't even know if anyone was there.

    Trying again, he heard his own voice.

    "I am Tom Keagle."

    He paused. He got out an openening sentence, but what was he going to say now? 'I want to join'? No, that sounded pathetic. He needed something to get their attention, something... weird.

    "I am willing to do anything possible to achieve power for the Sith."

    Yes, he was on a roll. He felt his tongue drifting away, he wasn't thinking of what he was saying.

    " I will ruthlessly kill without a second thought." He cringed as he said it. It was a harshconfession to make to a shadow, but he felt it somewhat necessary.

    He felt his eyes flash, as they did when he was excited. His eyes could arely be seen under his hood, but they were visible. The blue rim of his pupils turned slightly red, as if a light was rolling over them. It spread to the centre of his pupils, and faded quickly.

    He smiled, slightly. He knew his impression would be big, that the Empire would never be the same.

    "And Enjoy It!!"

    ~Sith Warrior Alisa Sha had seen the man ceremoniously enter the room for all to see. With a twisted grin on her face, she stepped from the shadows and approached him from behind, speaking loudly enough to startle him.~

    "It takes more than just the desire to kill to be a Sith. Tell me more about yourself and how you came to find your way here."

    ~She impatiently crossed her arms and waited for him to answer.~

    Keagle loved telling his story, the few chances he had got. He had perfected it in his mind many times over, planning for the day when he would be asked of it.

    "My story is long, and painful."

    Tom Keagle repressed a shiver, the room was cold, and the sense of The Force here was overwhelming him. As he thought for a second of the bad times, the memorys suddenly felt a thousand times worser than the experiences. It was the Dark Side, he reasoned.

    "I will start with how I grew up." He thought it best to describe his suffering in meticulous detail, so they would know of his motives, although he wasn't planning to reveal his objectives.

    "My father was a powerful Sith lord, on tattooine." His fatherwas actually the leader of a small group of people. He taught them many skills, offered them help and guidance whenever he could. He was an incredibly kind man. Young Keagle decided that information was unimportant a long time ago.

    " He was an unorthadox Sith, and even married. He married my 'mother' at an early age, but she died soon after."

    This was when he enjoyed telling the story most - seeing the audiences reactions, as they heard of his "birth". All the while, he had been standing completely still, but now, he shifted his weight onto one leg slightly.

    "Stricken with grief, he summoned aincent sith magic, and used he force itself to create two sons - me... and my brother." Keagle's hate for his brother was extremely clear to anyone who watched. He almost spat the word from his mouth, and felt his rage enhanced by the aura of tehe building he stood in.

    "My father intended to teach us both in the ways of the Sith, as his apprentices."

    His gifts were to be revealed next. He planned the words he would use slightly, and decided to keep it simple.

    "But whenever he, or anyone else came near me, both them, and I experienced excruciating pain."

    "When I was only 6 years old, my father abondened me, in a cave, just south of the village i grew up."

    "I lived in a self imposed solitary confinement, training my abilities on rats i came across. when i was twelve, i managed to hold, one, without it, or me writhing in agony."

    a sick smile came across his face, as he remembered that day. He remembered the e=very rat, how it smelt, how it looked, what it sounded like as it's bones crushed - all except how it felt. That was the curse of his cure. He sacrificed a sense.

    "Then I killed it."

    "I went back to the village that day, and set it on fire. these were the ones who had not accepted me. I burned their houses, then their bodies, one, by one."

    He remembered why he did this, but didn't reveal it to his audience. He wanted to feel. He wanted to feel pain, but felt nothing. He burned his skin terribly that day, in a quest to feel.

    The fire, the mens swords - none of it he felt, except through his gifts. Through The Force.

    "But I need someone who can teach me in my abilities." He had mastered the basics, but he was sure there was much he didn't understand.

    "I came to you, in search of Power. It is what i need, to kill all of the weak." He lied to them. This had nothing to do with the weak. It was all about power. All of it.

    He finished his speech. He shifted his weight back slightly, and straightened himself. He looked up at the woman who had been listening attentively, as if for approval.

    "Interesting tale. What happened to your brother, by the way?"

    ~She watched him closely while she waited for his reply.~


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Keagle on 08-12-2002 01:47 AM:

    The rage came back, as he again heard the word.

    Quickly, he dismissed the subject, trying to keep hold of his anger.

    "My Brother was trained by my father, as his apprentice. I have no further information on him, or my brother."


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Alisa Sha on 08-17-2002 12:36 AM:

    ~Alisa nodded to him.~

    "So, what kind of weaponry skills do you have?"


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Keagle on 08-18-2002 11:24 AM:

    Tom rerely ever fought. He was, as he described it, 'A man of the Mind'.

    He did know how to use simple, effective weapons, but again, he didn't reveal all. He felt at ease here, but his trust was hard gained.

    "My weapon is the force."

    "It is all I need, for the moment."

    "I have not had the money, or the knowledge to build a lightsaber." For once he spoke the complete truth. He duidn't have a lightsabre, he couldn't afford the parts, he didn't know how to make one, and quite frankly, he didn't have the time to research the subject.

    A large figured moved quietly through the Shadows surrounding this new comer, scouting his physical appearance and stature. At last he stepped beside Sith Warrior Alisa and nodded in deference towards her higher rank and abilities. Then he spoke, in a low voice and tone but it still echoed throughout the hall, as he looked directly at Keagle; "Isn't it amusing how the smallest insects always have the most irritating buzz, smallest brain, and yet they still think they can take down a beast much larger and powerful than them?" Then making a sudden movement he caught a fly that had been buzzign about in between his forefinger and his thumb, looking at it slightly amused he spoke again. "Slowly these bugs though loose their novelty and just become annoying and then you have to squash them." As he finished speaking he crushed th fly between his fingers and flicked the remains of the bug on Keagle's face. "You'd do well to heed those words and answer her questions quickly and concisely before my comrade loses interest in her little bug." And with those words he bowed to Alisa and stepped back in the shadows.









    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Keagle on 08-20-2002 01:44 PM:

    He didn't want to get on the wrong side of this man, but Keagle was not accustomed to being treated like dirt.

    He decided to counteract the little display with one of his own. He couldn't resurrect the fly, but he could give the impression he had, like the way a puppeteer controls a puppet.

    He brushed his hand over the fly, covering it from view.

    Again, he felt his eyes flicker red, in the way they had done before. Under his hand, he pulled the fly together with the Dark Side, and held it in the air. He removed his hand, and levitated the fly drop.

    As the fly fell towards the floor, he grabbed hold of it with The |Force, and levitated it away. It buzzed around the few people who had gathered, before disappearing into the shadows.

    "Ha!"

    "Think you are threatening? Or perhaps amusing?? Maybe this little crush you have on your fellow member is taking shape? Trying to impress her??"

    His eyes flickered again, as he realised he had read the mans mind. The information about his emotions was just... available to him, he didn't do it on purpose.

    OOC (out of character):
    Hello and welcome to one of the Star Wars roleplaying message boards. I would just like to let you know that the regeneration or healing of the bug is not allowed, plus well.. healing is pretty much a jedi trait anyway, not a sith trait. Please remember to keep your character abilities at a beginning disciple level and feel free to read the TSE FAQ as well as the FAQ in the Roleplaying Discussions forum. Thanks.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Keagle on 08-21-2002 01:45 AM:

    The fly got to nearly three weters away, and Keagle lost the patience it took to levitate it's remains.
    It dropped onto the floor.

    Ha!

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



    It was dead, you flickered your eyes and it flew away, all put back together again and alive. It was dead, you made it alive again.. which is healing. It's not allowed, period.

    "So you don't know how to use any weapons at all like a knife, dagger or sword? Do you have any hand to hand skills? Or any means of defending yourself from an attack? The Dark Side can drain your energy and leave you weak and open for an attack. How would you prevent a fatal attack if someone took you by surprise?"

    ~Alisa smiled to her other fellow member of the Sith Empire and then looked back at the newcomer to see what answers he had this time for her.~


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Keagle on 09-08-2002 01:52 PM:

    "You think me defenceless??" He decided ot was time to show his resourcefullness, but at the same time, test the skills of his associates.

    "Why don't you try attacking me? You will see that I am more of a challenge than a common housefly!"

    He shut his eyes, focusing on the emotions around him. He could sense several people, and focused harder. He could sense every crack on the floor below him, every heartbeat of the people around him, but felt still no walls. Heagain felt his eyes flicker. It was beginning to annoy him now, and he lost his concerntration for a second, as he thought of it.

    "I am ready. Take your time, make the attack a surprise!"


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Keagle on 09-09-2002 08:56 AM:

    He stood, upright, with a smile on his face. He was clearly not paying any attention to Alisa, but was now intentionally focusing on his eyes. He actually wanted to assess the other Sith.

    Posted by Raine Sarin on 09-09-2002 08:14 PM:

    *A soon as Keagle had finished his "threat" a sudden surge of electricity was let loose upon him, sending searing pain through his body and causing his burning flesh and clothing to cause a rather foul odor to flow through the recruitment area. The onslaught did not end until Keagle was writhing in pain upon the floor.

    Then, the Sith Lord stepped out from the shadows and glared down upon the hopeful*

    "How was that for a surprise attack? Would you care for another round?"

    *Folding his arms across his chest, Raine continued to glare down at Keagle.*

    "Your ego does not impress anyone here. If you truly wish to feel pain however, I can give permission to the others that stand in this room to kill you for your attitude."

    *Stepping back away from the smoking body of the very much alive, and obviously in pain, recruit, Raine awaited his answer.*








    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Keagle on 09-10-2002 08:33 AM:

    Keagle reached deep into his cloak, and with a small flick of his wrist, threw a small throwing knife at his attacker. The knife struck Raine in the arm, and he was clearly startled. Using the force, Keagle reached out and pulled the legs from underneath Raine.
    He struggled to his feet, and stood, over him.
    "I believe that it is a stupid battle tactic to let the enemy know all your secrets."
    He reached out a hand, to help up Raine - a guesture he thought would break the somewhat tense atmosphere in the room.
    He winced, slightly, at the burning pain through his body.

    OOC - I hope stabbing you doesn't count as dismemberment.

    Posted by Raine Sarin on 09-10-2002 04:47 PM:

    ooc: urhm..even a warrior would have been able to catch it. it's called force intuition...would have seen it coming. Hate to disappoint you on that one. But I'll work off of it...


    ic:

    *The figure before Keagle flickered and faded away, meanwhile, from the shadows behind the illusion, the real Sith Lord stepped forward, holding the dagger that had been thrown. The illusion was something he had learned as a Knight.*

    "All my secrets? Dear boy, it would take me days to show them all. I suggest you rethink your reasons for joining. Considering you have shown nothing but your egotistical disrespect. Why should we accept one like you, when you obviously will get yourself killed before you serve any purpose? And I do suggest you answer me truthfully, lest you truly wish to find out some more of my "secrets". Oh, and by the way, you might want to work on that little knife-throwing…thing. Anyone could have seen that from a mile away the way you make such a presentation out of it all, you might find that keeping a dagger at your side would be more effective than hidden in your cloak. Unless your opponent was blind they would have seen the fabric move. But enough of the free lesson, now, answer my question."

    *The look upon the Sith Lord's was one void of amusement as he thew the dagger back at Keagle, it imbedding itself in the floor a few inches from where the hopeful was. His patience with this one was turning sour, and it was not wise to anger a Sith Lord, lest you find the whole Empire after your head. Not that seemed to matter to this one, he seemed oblivious to that fact, but it would be something he would soon learn if he continued down the road he was.*


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Keagle on 09-11-2002 08:38 AM:

    "I may seem... " He paused, to rethink his words.
    "I lived most of my life, feeling rejected. I hated the world. I have had few friends."
    "If I seem 'Egotistic',or 'Disrespectful' it is because I am not used to working... Indeed living as part of a group. I tend to be a loner, much like yourself, if what I have heard is true. But I am not here for your sympathy."
    He paused, to rethink his reasons, such as Raines advice.
    "I have had very little training, in the Dark Side. What little I know, I have had to figure out myself. Little tricks such as the one you just performed-"
    His eyes flickered a little, and he was suddenly not there, but behind Raine.
    "-Have taken me months to fully understand. The reason I want to join... I don't know." He trailed off.
    "I have had a repeating dream, ever since a year from when my father left me. In it... I belong to a group. I felt free, and I enjoyed not having to cover up my 'Gifts'. The last few times I have had the dream, It has been much more vivid, I knew where I had to go to feel like this."
    "I suppose I have nothing to add to the Sith Empire, but... I feel that it will happen, regardless."
    He turned, as he dropped his head. he began to walk toward the door he had entered. His cloak swept around him, as he turned.

    OOC: How should I have phrased the knife thing? Was the way I wrote it wrong?



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





    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Raine Sarin on 09-11-2002 02:54 PM:

    *The Sith Lord put a finger to his chin and then nodded slightly, taking in what Keagle had spoken*

    "Very well. If you wish to leave, then do so. However, if you choose to stay, I believe it is now up to the council to decide your fate."


    ooc: no, you worded it fine, just you have to keep in mind that unless in battle where one could be easily distracted, they probably would be able to catch it using the quick reflexes that the force gives a person, especially if the person is just standing there. It's the same reason Jedi/Sith are able to block blaster shots with their lightsabre.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Keagle on 09-12-2002 08:06 AM:

    Keagle froze, with his head bowed, facing the door.
    "Of course, I do not wish to leave, or else I would not have come here. However I feel as though I am not worthy."
    He turned his head slightly, so Raine came into his view.
    "Do you believe I have a chance?"



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





    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Raine Sarin on 09-12-2002 10:41 AM:

    "Everyone has a chance. There is some potential in you."

    *In the back of his mind he thought about the first time that he had ever set foot inside the Empire, and he chuckled slightly. It was very easy to say that what was once the timid young Zabrak, was no more than an echo of what now stood in that recruitment room.*

    "After all, one can not expect our recruits to be 'perfect' when they arrive. That is what training is there for."


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Keagle on 09-12-2002 11:33 AM:

    Keagle turned, and faced Raine. He raised his head.
    "No." He said. His face was cold, and angry. Darker, than he was before. "That is not what i meant. Do you think it is likely that I will be accepted into the empire?"

    :: A woman donning a midnight blue cloak appeared from almost nowhere. She stepped forward from the side of the room where she had been observing while in her shroud of evil. She pulled back the hood of her cloak and nodded to her longtime apprentice Sith Lord Raine Sarin before turning to the newcomer ::

    "Ah, but the question is.. do you have what it takes to be accepted into the Sith Empire?"

    :: She paused briefly before continuing ::

    "I am Sith Master Dara Shadowtide, one of the leaders of this organization. I have heard all that has taken place so far. You do have one thing on your side thus far that does impress me.. and that is your staying power. You are very determined to gain entrance and such persistence is admirable. Are you willing to give everything, up to and including your own life, for the glory of the Sith Empire?"

    :: She levitated a small black oval device to the newest member of the Empire and awaited his response ::


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Keagle on 10-07-2002 08:43 AM:

    Keagle bowed his head, then raised it a few seconds later.
    As he grabbed the black object from the air, he reached out, and took Dara's hand, and gently kissed the back of it.
    "You do not know how much this means to me. I am very grateful."
    He smiled, and released her hand as he took a step back.
    He thought for a second, of the three Sith he had already encountered, and decided.
    "Who was the warrior who attacked me?"

    OOC: Whats the black oval? Is that supposed to be a list of Masters?

    (OOC: Yes. Just click on the link and choose from the list displayed there )

    IC: Nikka stood in the shadows and watched as the new reruit read from the small object. She nodded slightly to the newcomer, her face showing no emotions.

    "..."


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Dara Shadowtide on 10-07-2002 10:11 PM:

    "That was no warrior who attacked you. You experienced a small sample of a Sith Lord's deadly power. He also happens to be my longtime apprentice, Sith Lord Raine Sarin, a man not to be taken lightly. He is highly skilled and very demanding."

    OOC:
    The black oval is a holopad with a list of masters who are available to train you. If they have NCAA by their name, that means they are Not Currently Accepting Apprentices and cannot be chosen. Just click on this link:

    http://www.swroleplay.com/darkside/tse/bios.html

    And then post your choice for a master here and wait for their reply to your request.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Keagle on 10-10-2002 08:41 AM:

    Keagle slowly sat down, crossed legged, as he looked at the holopad. He knew that this day would affect the rest of his life.
    He was mildly confused, as until now, he was being guided by the force... yet now, he recieved no 'Advice' from the back of his mind, as he did on his journey here.
    "Well," he thought "I suppose that some things must be done alone."
    He sat, completely still, as he read, and re-read the holopad.
    "But... I don't know any of these people!" He pondered on this subject for a second, and he realised - "Theres just no accounting for experience!"
    He smiled, as he stood.
    "I have decided!" He thought it over one more time, just to make sure this was wanted to do.
    "I choose Sith Lord Raine Sarin!" His voice boomed through the chamber, as he pushed it further with the force.

    "Oh really? Do you?"

    *The Sith Lord spoke once again from where he stood in the room.*

    "And why, pray tell, is that?"


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Keagle on 10-16-2002 08:20 AM:

    Keagle knew the answer instantly.
    "I have seen first hand your ruthlessness, and skill," he paused, "and.. and I've never been hurt before."



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





    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Raine Sarin on 10-18-2002 07:17 PM:

    "Never have been hurt before? Well that's hard to believe. You see, never having been hurt suggests that you have never felt pain. And a lack of pain is something that is completely not found in those that come here.
    However, I do hope you enjoyed the feeling, if not, you'll probably suffer, seeing as how you and pain are going to become good friends. At least that is what I can promise if I am to teach you.
    Still wish for me to be your Master with this knowledge in hand?"


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Keagle on 10-20-2002 09:10 AM:
    Pain?

    "Lord Sarin, I fear you are wrong."

    He paced about Raine, as he spoke.

    "Up till 7 years ago, a person could not touch me without writhing in agony. Yet I have repressed the curse that cost me a childhood - at a small price."

    He bent down, and tugged at the dagger which Raine threw to him, retrieving it from the floor.
    It had a shiny black handle, and a silver blade. The handle glinted in the dim light. He remembered when he found it... on the day his father abandoned him. The knife was tossed at him, much like a few minutes ago. This dagger housed many emotions, for Tom Keagle. Many of them were Hate.

    "I can be injured, as badly as you, or anyone else... yet I do not get hurt. I feel nothing. I have emotions, but I am aware of my my body only through the force."

    Tom was played with the dagger, teasing his fingers with it's sharp blade.

    "If I was standing in a fire, I would not physically feel the pain, but the Force would scream through my mind, like a million deathcries."

    Tom stepped dead in front of the Sith Lord, held the dagger in a battle position, pointing it toward his left shoulder.

    "I have never experienced Force powers such as lightning, Lord Sarin. I have had no mentor, showm me my potential - that is why I am here. When you shocked me,"

    He raised his free left hand, and took the dagger to his palm. He put a slight pressure on it, and sliced downwards.

    "It did something. Up here."

    His hand began to bleed, heavily. He pointed to his temple with his dripping finger, and continued.

    "It hurt. So did this." He raised the clean dagger, which did not have a single splattering of red on it.

    He buried the dagger deep in his cloak, where it belonged.

    "Yes. I still wish for you to be my master"

    "Ah, so now I suppose the question must be asked. 'Do I want to take you as my apprentice?' The question I suppose must be answered this way. I will decide based upon your answer to this question..."

    *A strange smirk came to the Sith Lord's face, as if every ounce of anger was suddenly drained from him. He then spoke again, his eyes and voice reflecting and almost confirming what his smirk showed.*

    "How is a raven like a writing-desk?"

    Tom was puzzled, for a moment. He knew the answer, yet he didn't expect to be asked the question.

    "How is a raven like a writing-desk?" He repeated. "I suppose the obvious answer is that they both have two eyes."

    "However, thats too obvious. Another answer could be that there's a 'b' in both. Or that there's an 'n' in neither. Or maybe it could be that each begins with an 'e'."

    "However, I think the best answer to your question... is they can both be chopped into tiny pieces."

    Keagle's smirk now matched Raines.

    "The right answer? How did I do?"

    OOC: Do they have ravens in Star Wars?

    *Raine started to laugh. The laugh was hateful however, no bit of joy to be found.*

    "You who answer a question so quickly and then ask if you got it right? The answer to my question was simple really. However, no, you did not get it right. Did not even really try. The way you answered such a question reveals more about you than asking you about your past ever could. You are quick to make judgements, and do not truly seek an answer, but rather just jump to the first thought that floats through your mind."

    *With a wave of his hand he turned away from Keagle, slightly disappointed, but for once not caring for what his next actions would place in the minds of his peers. Let them think what they wanted to, only he really knew the answer as to why he was about to do what he was. He had never seen it done before, but then again, the Sith Lord was never one to go with standards.*

    "I have no patience to teach one such as that. Choose another. Someone in this establishment will teach you how to become a Sith. But I will not be the one to do so."

    *With that, the Sith Lord left the room, leaving those that stood there in shock. It was hard to tell what exactly the Sith Lord had meant. He in no way desired to insult the recruit. He simply did not have time to train apprentices, and he should have notified the council earlier. Raine had other things on his mind that needed to be tended to. No doubt Keagle would choose another Master. One that was better suited for the task of training him.*

    Keagle was slightly puzzled at the mans actions.

    "Why did he spend so much time here, if he knew that he wasn't going to take a padawan?" He sighed.

    "Back to the list, I suppose."

    He glanced at the holopad, the looked up. He found the whole situation slightly amusing.

    "Does anybody object if I speak with a few people, before choosing a master?
    I would like to speak with Sith Lord Darth Phantom. He sounds like a most intriguing character."

    Just so you know, Phantom is moving IRL and will be back as soon as he can.

    OOC: I fixed up the healing the fly thing from a while ago. I realised it looked a bit... odd.

    Is there anyone who might be interesting to meet while I wait for Phantom?
    Anyone who wants an apprentice...

    NO RUSH, WHOEVER IT IS I WAS WAITING FOR

    [I CAN'T EVEN REMEMBER WHO IT IS NOW!!]

    Sarcastic comments aside, I think I've waited a VEEEERY long time, and been more patient than most new recruits would be.

    SO..... I request some from of apology - IC. I don't actually mean apologize, but I dunno... give my character something, compliment him... do something nice etc.


    Would you call this emotional blackmail?

    hehehe

    OOC-you have much to learn about the life of a RPer. What you must remember is RL comes before the boards. And if you where to read around in stead of demanding things you would have seen This Thread and read that phantom has been on a holiday vacation with his family. Now i would appreciate it if you read what was happening around you instead of demanding an apology that you don't deserve for he has done nothing wrong.

    Now i understand i may be out place here, and if an admin/council member wishes for me to, i will delete this post and let it go, but i believe i am in the right, for demanding/ requesting an apology from someone that has done nothing wrong, is wrong.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Keagle on 01-10-2003 07:58 AM:

    Actually, if YOU bothered to read around [even read this thread] you'd notice that I already knew he was moving.

    The post you're talking about was a joke [As is the previous comment]. If you didn't realise, I'm sorry it wasn't more obvious.

    ooc - just so you are aware sarcasm is VERY hard to convey through text (and often never really is done well) No one can tell what you really mean, and to be honest, I thought you were being serious as well. So perhaps you should simply watch what you post?


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Talus Invictus on 01-10-2003 12:19 PM:

    OOC* IMHO, Keagle has been more than patient and I do believe he does deserve an apology, from TSE as a whole, Though Phantom has been away, I believe that we have not been very friendly towards our newest member. But that is my opinion. So on behalf of myself and anyone else in TSE I apologize for your wait. It was unfortunate, though unavoidable.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Dara Shadowtide on 01-10-2003 02:40 PM:

    OOC:
    Keagle started this thread on August 9th. I think he's been more than patient so if there are any Knights, Lords or Masters who are reading this thread who would like to step in here and volunteer to take on Keagle as an apprentice, I would really appreciate that so he can get started on his roleplaying here. Thanks.

    ~Edit~
    If the Knight, Lord or Master who volunteers to train Keagle could commit to posting every day to him for a while, I think that is the least we could do for him in light of this oversight. My deepest apologies Keagle and thank you for still hanging in there after all this time.

    "I will take him"

    The ancient Sith master stepped out of the shadows into the light. He flicked a coin at Keagle's feet.

    "Take it, it symbolises that you are mine, it also symbolises your rank, but more on that later, take it and I will train you,"







    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Keagle on 01-13-2003 08:20 AM:


    Keagle looked down at the coin. He couldn't see if there was a picture on the coin, or any inscription, so he bent down to have a closer look, careful not to touch it, or pick it up.

    He realised, that if he picked up this coin, it could change the course of his life. This man would be his master, teaching him how to use his gifts. This man would be his mentor, helping him when he needed it.

    He looked up at the man who threw down the coin. Keagle didn't know his name. Didn't know who he was. Didn't know if he would be taught well.

    He reached down, and with three fingers on his right hand, gently lifted it from the ground. He realised it felt more heavy than most coins, but reasoned that that was because he didn't notice others. This was important. This was life changing.

    His cloak drew around him while he rose from the floor. H held it out, looking for his new master for approval.

    [OOC: -:Stops Crying, and wipes eyes:-

    The post was a joke, but did include some valid points whoch have been backed up by Talus and Dara.
    Thanks, Draco, for showing interest.
    Again, on the Phantom note, I spoke with him over AIM at I think the end of December, when he said he was going to post here, as soon as he had caught up on other posts, so I wasn't really not bing understanding about him moving - he actually told me he was going to do it soon, then didn't. (Don't worry, Phant)

    I'm quite amazed at how much attention the thread got after such a long dry period.]


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Drako on 01-13-2003 01:18 PM:

    OOC/Thats Drako, not Draco and no worries /IC

    Drako watched quietly as his newest apprentice took the coin.

    "My name is Sith Master Drako, follow me to the training grounds and we will begin your training at once,"

    Drako bowed to Dara and headed out of the chambre towards the training grounds, not even looking if his apprentice was following him.
