Hypergate: Dawn of a New Age
« on: October 18, 2003, 12:38:53 AM »
Nomle and his team of Dwarven and Gnome archiologists stood on the edge of a great ravine in the Great Wastes south of boarder with the Terrans.  The Dwarfs slung their Blazer Sticks and whistled a dity while waiting for Nomle their Crystalmancer to tell them where to go.  Nomle crouched over a peach colored gem that glowed brighter than ever.  Nomle whispered a charm in true tongue and watched as the glow of peach gem straightened and flattened into a simple arrow.  Pointing right down the cliff into the ravine.  

Nomle shivered anything could creep down there, he waved to the group and pointed down the hill, "Tis this way!"

"Da!" One of the darves chirped.  And plowed down the down the rocky side, the cliff it seemed didnt go straight down.  The dwarf that lead seemed to have found an almost invisble path down.  

At the bottom little light reached them, one of the dwarfs reached in his coat and produced a torch which he lit.  The light chased away Nomle's fears then something glinted in the chunk of stone or metal not far off.  Nomle raced towards it fear forgotten and his curiosity aroused, the others hurried after him into a well lit chamber.  Light glowed from triangles on the walls but msot amazing of all was a sixteen foot diameter ring in the center of the room covered in marking in some ancient foreign tongue.  Infact the strange picture like symbols seemed to cover every wall.

"Oh my..." Nomle said it was an archologists dream a perfectly preserved building with plenty of artifacts.  

One of the dwarves examined the ring, then he shouted for the others.  Not more than a minute latter they were squabbling like human chlildren.

"Here, here! Whats all this all about?" Nomle asked.

"Sire, I know every metal deposited in all of Higara and this metal ring is made of none of them.  It could be from beyond this world.  

Nomle grinned ear to ear, he would be famous.  He opened his bag of books and started taking notes furiously...



*                                         *                    *                                   *



Jordan Orsmout stood on the bridge of Punisher and watched the orbital station below him.  His chest swelled with pride his greetest undertaking was almost complete.  The Super-Nova-class WarCruiser was the his dream and the workings of his best egineers.  This new ship would ensure his dominancy in the Empire.  The last of the old monarchy had been washed away, with no one to act as leader he knew his political opposition would fall.  

Jordan was worried about a rebellion but knew that soon once his dream was complete no one would stand against him even the colonists would bow low to him.  They thought a six month space voyage would save them for his wrath, and their leader, woman named Tara Lenith, had made it clear.  But his surprise should be arivving there any moment.  He relished in the site of his beast then wirled around and stalked towards the exit.

"Ready my shuttle Captain."


*                          *                            *                                           *



Tara watched as ther stars stream by outside her old Colony-class Transport.  She had already submitted her claims for colonial independence and was sure Jordan would agree to them.  Thats what people did, was follow what she said.  She had been raised a diplmat since she was a baby.  Everyone listened to her she reclined in the seat in the sweet.

The bridge officer sighed, "at last the &^%$@ left us, I cant stand her Jorge."
The other bridge officer nodded and was about to reply when he saw a flash of light and swore.  

"What?" Joe the first bridge officer said he followed his comrades gaze and wet his pants.  

A Nova-class Carrier had droped out of jumpspace and was closing quickly painted in all black.  SpecOps Black, the enforces of Dictaito's Orsmout new rule,  K-1's were sweeping in close and disabled their engines.

Joe saw a brilliant red flash from the carrier then him and the rest of the crew and passengers (including Tara) got their glance at the Great Beyond...

In the following years Nomle grew rich, warm abd comfortable, he deciphered the gate and learned how to work it.  He grew even richer as he sold the information to all the governments.  All the races adventualy had at least to or three colonies each. Jordan grew older and even more evil and paranoid.  Thousands of people disappeared and even more were executed on trumped charges.  The Terran Empire is on the verge of open rebellion.  Drow and human relations were beggining to heat up again as private cooperation started expanding south and consuming additional resources.  Relations have grown stressed and are also on the verge of violence...


Luke strood his Knight through the rolling hills and columns of fumes, smoke, and steam that all drifted up from the many mine shafts.  He'd been in the Army's First Mechanzied Walker Regiment and had his first shot at leading a full fire team.  He shifted in his seat nervously and clutched the controls sticks tighter, Intel brief had said that the Drow were on the move here, and the SAUL Cooperate Base had come under attack by Drow Death Riders.  The very thought grew fear in his heart, even when he was strapped into more than eighty tons of man made killing power.  He cycled his weapons into power.  

"Coperal Lavin, I have a contact on active radar its about 1 kilometer off." came the sweet soft voice of PFC Jeanie.  She always was one with the best eyes Luke thought.  

"Rodger that. Let's roll." There was no need to say anything else his team was good.  He flipped down his magnifacation visor and watched a cloud of dust rise in the only the next hill or two over.  He flipped over to his the Command Channal.

"Eagle Lead come in, this is Hawk's Eye 2-1, come in over."

"This Eagle Lead, Hawk Eye 2-1, what do ya have Corperal Luke?"

"Eagle I have at least a battalions worth of Death Riders in bound."

"Gotcha Pull your fire team out of there back to the line, I'll have artilery drop a few missles on the Death Rider Position Send me their cordinates."

"Rodger Eagle Lead, sending cordniates now with movement corelation, over"

"Copy get the hell out of their Luke."

"Already am, sir!"

Luke flipped his comm back to his team's, "Ok hawks were out of here artilery is dropping a package on those Riders."  
Jeania and Joe both made nods with the heads of their Knights and turned around and took leaping strides across the terrain.  A minute later there was a roar overhead and more than fifty rockets launched by overhead followed shortly by a flash and another roar of an explosion.

Luke's team reached the line without a problem, he frowned there weren't that many heavy veichles here he and his team would be hard pressed to hold.  

"Ok team staggered formation join up on the line and brace for an assault use snipers first then you choice after they close.  Luke glanced out the side screens, there wasnt much in the way of support.  Alot of infantry and Blitz with a couple of Tazers in  Assault mode, and his three Knights.


Luke flipped a few buttons and pulled down the Magnification Scope, a few wirring sounds and the MAP RAIL GUN was armed.  Luke focused in and selected a Rider with three stripes of red, and hit the trigger.  A flash of blue exploded arounf the cockpit from the capaciot discharge, then a shell launcher out of the barrel at hypersonic speeds.  In a heart beat the shell impacted on the Rider's armor plating splitting the leg off at the knee joint.
Twevle others suffered the same fate from similar projectiles.  

Luke shook his head this wasn't good there were still at least 124 Death Riders left, "one more round then switch to KPED's team."  Another twelve rounds discharged slaying another ten walkers, Luke took aim and fired. "s**t!"  His shot was deflected by the shield.

Luke flipped up the scope and put the rifle away on his back. All of the sudden the Death Riders stopped and launched an energy barage.  Luke didnt utter a word but through both joy sticks foward and dove his machine into the dirt.

"Eagle Lead, this is HawkEYE2-1 were under attack in sector 7, requesting reserves!"

"Negative, 2-1, were under attack across the whole d**n lin-" The line went dead, "s**t" Luke swore to himself quiet enough so the mike wouldnt pick it up.  

He raised his mechs arm and let loose with both heavy beams. The whole area lit up red for a second as two ruby red lances of enegy stabbed at the enemy. Just then the barrage hit, a direct hit,  debris flew everywhere.  Blood sprayed on Corperal Luke's screen,  half the armor on his shoulder slagged off, Luke raised his Knight off the ground.  

"Return Fire!" Came the tanker Lt.

Luke raised the left hand of his knight and let loose a stunning barrage of lasers that scorred hits everywhere.  He held down the fire stud until his heavy lasers recharged then he let loose with those again.  "Hit the dirt!" Luke shouted on the all hands.  This the time the barrage of deadly dark magic energy was off enough to sail over their heads.  Except one that scored a another direct hit on a Tazer and set off it Krana reactor.  Spraying clouds of red fire all around that ate away at the unprotected infantry.

Luke turned away his eyes and leapt up.  The Drow closed in, "This is GroundHog 1-1 were bugging out in sector 7!  All units code RED-IOTA-ZERO, FALL BACK!!" came another Lt's voice.  Luke squatted for a second that allowed about fifty infantry clamer onto to his Knight the other mobile units followed suit, Luke pushed a button on his keypad and a set of smoke grenades discharged putting up a storm of gases and smoke...

The battle had gone badly for the Terran legion the line was shattered by the Drow onslaught worse yet, rumors that some rebels had taken the time to rear their ugly heads.  He had heard that two major cities in the south had succeeded in throwing out the local militias.  The cities were the main supporters of industrial arms and veicles.  The only reason that stopped Jordan from bombing them from orbit.  

Luke strode his Knight over the plains, him and what remained with of the Sector 7 line had been on the run.  His Lt. had told him that if the made it to the cities they could shore up defenses there.  Luke didn't like that city fighting was ugly business a lot of civilians would loose their homes and even more would die.  Drow Death Riders had been making flanking raids on their teams to.  Their were few infantry left, especialy sonce most of the  mobile armor would run before anyone could get a ride.  There was about of platoon of ground pounders left.  Luke had lost one of his Knight's PFC Jorge had been lsot when four energy blasts had hit him at once, in a ambush not far from the line.  

Pyramid scouts were even flying past their position every night.  Only one Tazer tank was left, and all of them were running low on MAP rounds and rockets.  The rebellion rumors hab been worring but the Lt believed he'd be able to take control of one city at least.  

Luke pondered about his family up north and wondered what would was happening there.

Serena stood and watched from the very top tower of fortress Kortir, ragged peaks and cliffs sweeped down before her.  All of this was hers, Commandont General Serena Vrenia was part of Dictator Jordan Orsmout's Commanding Council.  She and eight other people were part of the council and were leaders of eight different stats in the Empire.  

Serena was very very displeased her war with ther Drow was going badly, she had compeled Jordan to involve national forces but at the council vote she had been voted against 7-1.  Jordan held an ultimate veto power but he was to worried with his precious space colonies to pay her any attention.  There was nothing she could do, she had ruled with an iron clad fist and it had stirred up some of the more stubborn in her stat.  Two of her major industrial cities had revolted and killed the Commandont Mayors at each, and a Drow attack force had overrun her line down south.  

Something new etched its way into Serena's conscious, it was fear.  Fear something dripped into her very inner being, like cold water it eneveloped her in an icy grip and stranggled the breath from her lungs.  

"Aaa.. mam?" A snivling voice came.  

"What now!?" She snarled her feirce and ruthless self resurfaced...

*                                          *                                                          *

A Drow fight swept by overheard spraying bolts of death of the landscape, the remants of the Sector 7 line unit were stuck out in the open in a pitched running battle across a more than a hundred miles of grassland plains and large weaving rivers.  Out of the entire line unit there were only a handful infantry still with them, them worked as gunners and snipers aboard the tanks using the flat tops as mobile pilboxs.  About 20 Blitz's were left a handful of Tazers in assault and artilery modes, and the two Knight's.  PFC (Private First Class) Jeanie had proven herself an extremely capable warrior.  

Jeanie had used her Knight's sword to single handly take out four Death Riders that had tried to hit their supply truck.  Luke remebered that if he survived he'd sworn that he would get her a promotion and a nomination for the Medal of Valor.  

Luke strafed the fighter that passed by over head with a pulse of KPED fire from his rapid fire krana lasers. The battle continued...

The Sector 7 Line Unit had been battling away with the 234th Drow Assault Battalion on the plataeu for over for a dat or two, it was a total stale mate.  Luke's Units was backed up against cliffs to steep and high to get down from and the 234th Drow unit had too little fire power left to continue the fight.  It was reduced to fighting in the rock maze that blocked both teams and constant sniper attacks from both sides.  The one advantage the Drow held was logistic support.  They had a complete field base with supplies and a small portable platform for fighter refueling.

Luke sat on the foot of his Knight it was the first brake in battle for him in almost 50 hours.  He had been napping out for a while.  He the line was less than a mile away from him.  He was just about to go back on shift, so he walked over to PFC Jeania and placed a hand on her shoulder.

"Hey wake up warrior," he gave her shoulder a slight shake.

"Mmmm, five more minutes." She mumbled.

"Sorry soldier, but the grunts need us." Luke muttered.  

"Mmm alright, dum grunts need some one to hold their hand." She opened her eyes sat up and smiled at Luke.  

"Alright now that your awake I'll grab you some pick me up."

"See you in a bit."

Luke walked out and grabbed some hotroot soup and shared a bowl with Jeanie.  The hotroot burned away most of night's cold claws that still gripped him.  They finished the hotroot soup, "Ok suit up private its time to go smash some Drow." Luke said with a cheeky confidence.

The two walked away from eachother to their Knights, the two walked off into the distance as two gods of war about to wage a bloody retribution...

Even with the renewed courage and hope the battle went bad to worse fast.  Luke ran his Knight in a backwards trot his two large Krana larers blazed at targets that had formed a semi circle around them slowly seperating them and pushin them up against the edge of a cliff.  The height was harrowing and almost a mile straight down.  

Suddenly out of a group of Death Riders that had been sneaking closer launched a furious assault on the other Knight, PFC Jeanie's Knight.  In a flash of blue she was there then in a flash she disappeared in a virulent explosion of indigo fire, cinders blew in the air.  

"NOOO!!!!" Luke screamed forgeting himself he was among the enemy in a flash, the long sword drawn and delivering a hellish swath of destruction.  But slowly the enemy pressed in forcing back one step at a time but not with out a heavy cost.  

Finaly Luke was forced to the edge with no where to go, the Death Riders Lanched another barrage of blue death. Luke stepped backward and expected a quick death, suddenly his gut gave a wrench as he fell.  

Suddenly he felt a jolt and heard a loud cland, he had landed ontop of a human dropship and it did a 180' turn and retreated. Luke felt as if his heart had been ripped open and his guts torn.

Luke glanced about and noticed the marking on the wing showed that of the Sepratists not the Empire...

About half an hour later at an location that looked foreign to him, they were well north of the capital maybe in elven terriotory.  A voice hummed on the comm unit in Luke's Knight, "Power down all your systems and open the hatch, Corperal Lavin and you will not be harmed."  Luke glanced at the forward display screen a armored figure stood on the chest of his Knight in his arms lay cradled the biggest KPEB cannon Luke had seen.  

"Aye." he muttered into his comm. He took off his neuroheadset and let it drop to the floor, he flipped a few switches and the screeens, displays and monitors blacked out.  He stepped out the side hatch leapt to the ground.  A squad of infantry armed with normal KPEB Rifles stood around him in a semi circle.  

"It's ok, I'm unarmed." They checked him anyways, fifteen minutes later he was pushed into a well lit office a woman sat behind the desk in a field jump suit.  She had long dark brown hair, blue eyes, and something else...

"No..." Luke said in a strangled voice.

"Tara Watson?" She said with a grin that looked cheerful and grim, was that possilbe Luke thought, "I am Samantha Watson her daughter."

Luke's mind nearly did a backflip, but he kept his surface from showing the surprise, this woman was supposed to be dead on that ship with her mother.

Two guards in the back prodded him to a chair and sat him down.  Luke woundered what this woman's game was. "I thought we are enemies?" Luke asked.  

"Only if you make it that way Luke, I know about you, more than you think.  I know you were conuscripted I know you should be a Lieutenant by now if not for corrupt politics, I know you were an orphan, and I know you just lost your entire unit in a vain battle with the Drow." Samantha continued, "Luke can it not be ovious to you that Empire is becoming a plague on human history, do you know how my mother died?"

Luke had heard that she had been killed by a separatist bomb.  

"She was killed in cold blood by the Empire, infact your great Emperor ordered the hit." She hit a button and a small screen revealed it self and played a short scene.

"Luke this is the black box from the C.S.S. Truth that my mother had hidden on her way to Earth, as you know it is impossible to replicate the images recorded on a black box because of its magic.  The images you see are Black Ops Nova-Class Carrier of Jordans destroying my mother's ship."

"Do not feed me lies." Luke said with a response he was cuffed on the back head.

"Stop it!" Samantha hissed at her guards, "Leave us I can defend my self... that is an order. Listen Luke you know these cannot be faked, your great empire is nothing but a bloated rotting corpse with a pretty mask."

Luke emotions battled logic battled loyalty, and faith battled truth.  Luke knew Jordan was an evil man but he hadn't had a chance to act till now.  Would he have the courage to do what he should have done on the beginning?

"Alright..." Luke said sighing, "What do you want me to do?"  

Samantha nodded...

Luke rested his back against a brick wall, a Krana Rifle was cradled in his hands behined him stood another score of rebel troopers allcarrying varying weapons, some had a MAP Rifles, most carried Blazers of varying power, the few lucky ones had Krana Rifles.  All of them including Luke wore trench coats with light weight kevlar plates sown into them.  The rest had what ever clothes on thier backs they could lay their hands on.  

Around the corner two armored figured of the Terran Empire Armed Forces stalked by with Krana Gatling Guns.  Luke whistled the troopers sprung around to catch filisade of fire in thier faces.  Luke rolled around the corner in a crotch and shot two more troopers across the street.  "Grab their guns, we'll need them." He ordered.  The mansion of Govenor Luis Batchall stood before them tall iron gates were more decoration than defense a blast from one of the dead trooper's gatling guns melted it.  

"GO GO GO!"  Luke was the first one into the yard running pelmel to the first cover a statue of the goddess Athena.  He got to the cover with three others just as the loyalist counter attack, a stacato of Krana energy cut down more than ten rebels caught in the open and pinned the two groups down.  

"Grenades!" Luke shouted.  He unclipped the M78 Frag Grenade from his blet and chucked it at the nest of guard troopers near the door.  Screams filled the air as thousands of razor sharp filment launched into the air pulping the guards at the door.  Luke grabbed the Krana Gatling Gun from one of the deceased rebels who had almost made it to the cover of the statue.  He flinched as MAP round whistled past his head.  A sniper was on the roof, Luke pulled a car mirror out of his coats pocket holding it by the handle he wathced the sniper on the roof.  Signaling to his allies he tossed a smoke grenade  up into the air two of his fellow revolutionairies rolled to either side, one screamed as a MAP round caught him in the chest the other fired off rounds from her Blazer the white beams crisped the sniper.  d**n the sniper must of had a thermal scope, Luke thought.

Luke ran into the govenors mansion along with the remaining rebels that  had survived. Inteligance had said that some days ago in a fight for the city, Tarples, Duke Leo Tesmari had been captured, the sole lving member of the Royal Family Samantha had imedaitle sent out every resource she had, Luke because he had just recently joined had been assinged to lead an infantry fire team of twenty to support the rebel push on Tarples.  But the local Govenor Luis Batchall had anticipated her response and had drawn almsot all the military forces in the stat to him. Fighting had bogged down armor divisions had been used first both sides decimated eachother the results were a push soley mounted by infantry the lack of communications reuslted in sperate fire teams finding their own way through the city.  Luke's team had been lucky and assigned an under ground route through the sewers avoiding most of the constant sniping and brief brutal fire fights as forces wandered aimlessly through the cities the Krana Reactors blocked out all radio wave communications and loyalists forces monitored land line communications.  Luke's team had come out of the sewers a block from the mansion and it looked the only fire team to make it through to the mansion to get the out before the loyalists could transfer him...


OOC: If anyone wants to join up roles open are other rebel insurgents: medics, spies, other soldiers, or perhaps a 3rd party as long as it ran smoothely with the plot im developing.

Luke ducked around the corner of the door way the mansion was huge and surely went under ground, the hallway he and the rest of the rebels had stepped into was paneled with beautiful wood and such extravagance that it almost distracted the dedicated rebels.  Luke nod to the other seven people left, "You two take the east wing, you two the west wing you two go down stairs, you, your with me were going up stairs check back here in twenty minutes.  

Luke and his other teamate a vetran from the Jordan take over a man named Sherwood, was Luke's sargent for this mission.  Luke and Sherwood ascended up the wide marble stairs on each side, careful to expose themselves to any potential sniper.  At the top there were statues of the God Zeus and Nymphodora on either side of the passage.  Sherwood took cover behind one the started to move froward when a MAP round caught him in the leg.

"ahhhh" he moaned, "Luke I'll...    ...cover you then you take him." Sherwood stuck his KGG(Krana Gatling Gun) around the corner and opened fire.  A fillisade of red energy  shot down the hal way pulpling the sniper. A bloody hand severed at the wrist rolled down back to them.  Luke moved ahead again and kicked in the closet door. Nothing.  The same followd suit all the down the wind untill the last two doors.  Luke smashed through the last door or tried to he bounced right off it, unlike the others this one was made with steel.  

"If anyone is in the there it would be best if you stand away from the door."  Luked let loose with the Krana Rifle and melted the door off its hinges...

Luke leapt through the melted door, and stopped dead in the room, there in the door way stood a large ring more than eight meters in diameter.  A set of steps lead up to a steel gate the ring had a swirling liquid in it that covered the entire space inside the ring.  A control station stood at the side with destination cordinates in it Luke grabbed a piece of paper and scribled them down.  Suddenly the ring's liquid disappeared and just left emtpy space.  

Luke shook his eyes outside he heard shouting, he ducked behind a column a score of amored troops entered the room forming a double row of ten enough for the Governor and his prisoner to enter the room.  One guard dialed a code into the larger pedestal symbols on the ring lit up and glowed.  Then the 7th symbol lit up and the liquid surface appeared again, Govenor Luis and Duke Leo went throught after two guards then the rest of guards went through.  Luke had a moment to make a choice.  He dived haedlong into the gate's liquid...

The world seemed to swirl as if in a vortex Luke felt like ice was being poured down his back.  The space around him was empty and full at the same time it seemed, sense were being assaulted.  Colors that no one could imagine swirled and formed at the same time it was silent and thundered.  Then as quickly as it came it was gone, Luke tumbled in a heap and landed off to the side of the platform.  The room around him was enclosed and full of storage crates.  A door that disappeared into the walls stood at the other end of the room, as far as Luke could tell there was no one here.  Luke looked at the dialing device on the pedistal this was different it looked like an ancient pedistal with two rings of symbols that could be pushed down and a large blue button in the middle the pedistal its self was made of pure white marble.  

Luke sweeped the room with his eyes, no one here.  He moved over to one of the crates and lifted the top off.  Inside it neated placed on a cushion was some sort of rifle it looked. It had to barrels and a  handel one could grab in the middle, both of it ends glowed a blue white color.  It's grib was much too large for any humans normal hand.  Luke left it and went out of the room.  As the door opened he entered a hallway that was covered in blue glowing crystals.  At the end of the hallway was a deadend, and down the other passage there were a series of doors that glowed red around the edges were the seems met the walls.  

Luke walked down the hallway for a ways, whatever this place was it was huge.  Look came to a window and lost his breath, there below him laid the planer Higara, he could even see the space yard from here.  Then two Pyramid fighters flew by and Luke realized where he was...

It a Drow Capital Starhip and by the looks of it they were in a huge fire fight with Terran forces.  Looked gulped and rushed down the hall, he had to find the Duke and get out of here fast....

Luke rushed down the hall looking into doors.  Ooops.  he accidentaly ran into the ships marina barracks.  Three Brutes were aleady donning combat gear ready for boarders.  Luke shot off some pulses and ran.  "AAAHHHH  AHHHHH" he shouted.  A brute chased after him, Luke flipped around and fired a few Krana blasts but to no avail the brute had its energy shields up.  Luke squeezed thorugh a narrow bulkhead into another hall a brute tried to follow but got stuck.  Luke took out a stick grenade and stuck it on the brutes forhead. "Stickcoz" he muttered then ducked through the door.  A roar then a blast came the reverbrated through the hull.

"HEY YOU!" Luke whirled around and almost shot his objective. Duke Leo Tesamari stood before him.

"My Duke," Luke bowed then went over and blasted the controls that held the Duke inprisoned. Luke pulled out a short stick and gave it to the Duke, "here take this, do you know how to use the gate Duke?"

"Sorry son, no that traitor Govenor Luis is playing both sides against the middle-."he said.  

"Oh- Sargent Luke Lavin, SIR!" Luke said.

"Thanks for the rescue Sargent, anyways Luis has sold out to the Drow that why were aboard this ship."  

"Sir, its my job to get you safely back to the resistance." With that Luke ducked around the door with the Duke and hurried tolds a large stairway down.  The stair expaned into a huge expanse under a large catwalk.  

"Come on, sir we can hijack a shuttle or something.  Luke stopped at the firs t craft he saw, it was a Pyramid scout craft with its cockpit bay opened. Luke pushed the Duke in then followed and closed the hatch.  

He glanced at the controls, "Oh s**t were gonna be here a while. See if you can find a manuel."

Luke glanced at the manuel, it was all in drow. "Duke can you read drow?"

"As good as you can sargent." he said. Luke nodded pondered over the controls.  Suddenly a huge rent opened up in the far wall of the docking bay as a projectile the size of small house blew in the wall.  "Oh s**tiiittt!" Luke cursed as the atomsphere sucked out the ship.  Luckily both of them were strapped into the over sized seats.  Luke mashed a large button on the key board the engine spurred to life.  Luke pulled back on the joystick which surpisingly sent the crafy in reverse, Luke cursed under his breath, and shoved the large handles foward.  

"Lets see what teeth this beast has got on her," Luke muttered again.  He pulled a large oversived trigger which made the craft suddenly fling into to an evasive manuver to the port.  "Ok, I'll just fly now."  He heard a groan from the back.  

Luke shooved the controls forward and sent the little craft hurtling through the fight fire fight at brake neck speeds.  A huge SuperNova class battlecruiser unleashed another barrage with it's nine MAP RAIL GUNS.  Silverey flashes marked the pathes of destruction.  One of the ship killing rounds fround a small Drow support ship.  It broke the ship's back and spead right through.  Luke whooped.  Suddenly flashes sivlery and blue and white filled the space again except these were directed at the Terran Fleet.  The lances of bright energy and smashed into terran ships, one bullet frigate twisted and vaporized.  A huge nova carrier took three beams amid ships in its aero fighter bay, the large aero carrier bloated and errupted in blue iridescent fire.  A few fighters made it out in time but Luke knew that many more perished with the ship, he felt bitter-sweet as both his enemies were mindlessy beating eachother senseless, but he regretted the human deaths.  He barrel rolled his fighter craft out of the way of another barrage and flew beneath another huge Nova Carrier suddenly three K-2's fell in behind MAP guns blazing.  

"Hang on highness!" Luke shouted as he sent the small craft in a hurtling dive told the planets atomsphere. Suddenly the ship shuddered horriblt as a strafe of MAP rounds rent through the shields and punched into his armor.  The hull held though, the Drow really knew how to make space craft.  The ship spiraled through the atomsphere, he pulled a small piece of paper out with a series of radio codes on it.  "Here see if you can get the communications to work on this beauty." He handed the Duke the piece of paper, his face was pale and green...

Luke shook his head as the g-forces being pulled by the fighter's speed sapped at his vision.  Luke dialed the down the speed and tried to get his bearinging's.  They were somewhere over southern Lokotmon and speeding towards the north.  Suddenly another buzzing sounds filled the air as another stream of MAP rounds slammed into the crafts back.  This time rounds shot through.  

Luke lost his breath when the 12 inch MAP round impaled itslef on his left arm.  "Aaarrrggg." He sagged forward on the controls pitching the craft end of end.  As the craft righted itself he grabbed the duke, and through him into a small life pod at this height he wouldn't float but the fall wouldn't kill him.  Luke grabbed the Duke with his right hadn and bodily through him into the pod then hit the jetison switch.  The small pod blasted away, and Luke felt the craft give out from under him.  Looks like this is it...

...Jordan Orsmount stood on the command bridge of his SuperNova-Class Heavy Cruiser, Iron Gaunlet, off to ths side he was strapped into a command chair watching the battle in the holographic tank below.  His Adirmal of the Fleet, Rapiur Luxo, was doing an extremely surpurb job of decimating the Ishtarix Fleet.  A few warm holes opened and the remaining capital ships slipped into the strange tunnels and disappeared.  

"Sir, they errr... retreated beyond our range to persue them."  Adirmal Luxo siad.

"Very well..  Adirmal use our sensors to locate Drow centers of population on planet below also try to target Drow troops columes.  Then have the fleet turn all heavy waepons planetward and fire."  Jordan orderd.

"My Lord!  Are you sure?"

"Yes, now do it Adirmal or you will be relieved."

The Adirmal snapped to attention, "YES my Liege." Then he turned to the bridge crew. "You heard the Lord snap to it, com get me the fleet..."  

..."My Lord the fleet has targeted 34 suspected Drow cities and 23 regiments and 3 columes that are now fighting. We await your command."

Jordan smiled billions of lives hung in his hand and he relished it, "Adirmal commence orbital bombardment..."

               *                      *                        *                            *

In the streets below of the Drow cities, the night was alive with life.  Suddenly buildings blew apart as if by magic, the MAP rounds impacted just before the sound hit of them braking the sound barrier.  Followed quickly by bright red ruby lances of hellfire that wrote burning paths of destuction.  In the first salvo 15 cities just vaporized, the second salvo targeted the cities more broadly the next 19 were in destruction and dissarray.  MAP rounds litteraly burrowed into the earth throwing up debris and shattering structures, craters blossomed in the cities.  Red lances of energy turned cold steel into running molten metal.  Rivers of fire poured through city street incerating everything.  The third salvo pulverized all the cities into black charred craters in the earth, the fourth and fifth waves decimated the Ishtarix military installations and concentrations of troops.  Red energy turned troops into ashes then even burned the ashes.  MAP rounds shattered anything nearby or pulverized the targets.  

In what would go down in history as The Nigh of the Skyborne Slaughter, in one fell swoop the Terran Empire had almost wiped the entire Drow population on the planet Higara.  Some labeled it genocide, propagande called it a tactical attack neccessary for the survival of mankind.  Genocide won out on most people's minds.  Even most humans considered the act an ultimate evil.  The result was both the Gnomes and the Elves declared war on the Terran Empire, plunging the world into an even darker time...


...and in the far away mountaion range in the wild north a female dark elf bannished from Arila explored the wreckage of a mysterious craft that had fallen from the sky the afternoon before the night of the Great Red Terror, even more mysterious was the strange being that looked like an elf but was taller bulkier and didnt have pointed ears.  Somehow he was alive, she stopped his bleeding and began to try healing him.  Luke breathed...
