The Gate Project III

A week has passed and stable relations have been established with the 'native' Ral'zar and a few of the native human groups. A stable influx of fresh meat, fruits and vegetables has been established using mainly the Gate Ships for transport as well as a few Ral'zar Phantoms. A small settlement has also been set up on the mainland staffed by a few expedition members but mostly by Humans that are native to the galaxy and have been willing to lend help in what ever ways they can. Most of the humans in this galaxy have relatively primitive technology, about medieval level, but due to the Buaith and Elites are not really mystified by the advanced technology. Rave, AXeDD, Jack, Aya and Feldraxium have been called to the Conference room for a mission briefing. Alvara, Enifin, Blake, Mareesa, and Sentry have been slotted for a briefing shortly after the first Team.

aya rolled in her sleep as her hands searched for Jack while she laid in bed.
Zanon, if you disagree with what I'm about to do, let me know, but I'mma getting an energy blade. Morph, if you dislike it, I'll live.

IC: I walk into the briefing room, contemplating some of the things the Elite had told me over the last week, specifically about the Buaith (Can't ever remember how to spell that :/). Most of it worried me more than I was willing to show and a lot of it, specifically their feeding process, was reason to avoid them as long as possible. "Afternoon, Colonel. What's up?"
I take the medication bottle and head back to my room taking two of the pills as was recommended and resume trying to sleep.
I wait around, wondering when our briefing will be, and for what. I hadn't slept well lately.
Feldraxium crosses his arms, waiting for the briefing to start.
OOC: Ok just got to say this before it becomes a issue.


Thank you for understand. I was going to post it last night but net cut out on me.
You're aware Kroger is the only one who fliggered, right? Not to mention we can read.
Yes zarkun I know..... but every thread someone mistakes the city for a ship so reposting it. It wasn't aimed at anyone just a reminder.
Eh, fair enough.
Zark: please back off of steel. I'll handle him if needed. also not entirely sure about the energy blade right now ... I guess you can keep it for now unless zanon has a problem with it.

IC: I place my hand on Aya and shake her gently to wake her up. "Time to get up dear. We have a briefing to get to."

The Colonel looks at Rave and Feldraxium. "You can wait until everyone is here."

Aya groaned a little not wanting to wake up. "Oh fine... if I have to." She says getting up and changing into clothes.
I hug Aya gently. "I know you don't want to I don't either but we do need to."

She puts on her glasses before kissing Jack. "Lead the way honey." She says with a yawn still not wanting to leave.
I lead Aya up to the conference room and we sit beside each other as we wait for the rest of the group to arrive.
OOC: Not to be terribly obstinate zarkun, but I do have a problem with it. Simplest comparison I can make is the belt system in the martial arts, except it has an almost religious component to go with it.

My lore on them is this:
After a warrior has proven himself in battle many times with a projectile weapon of some sort, he finally receives a red blade. He then is trained excessively in its use, a period lasting no less than 2 years, regardless of skill with the blade. These tasks include the tree trimming you witnessed earlier. This teaches humility.

The blue energy blade is for those who have proven themselves after years of service to the Masters and demonstrated competence with the blade. Most never receive a blade rank higher than this.

The final blade rank is gold. Those who have served for many more years and proven themselves to be worthy commanders of many of their kind receive this blade.

No matter how deep the shame cast upon a warrior, his blade rank can not be reduced, for it will serve as a reminder of how far he has fallen. On the other end of this, you can not rise in blade rank by slaying another higher ranking individual. You may keep the blade as a trophy, but if you are ever caught using a blade above your station, the punishment is death.

You were spared because you were holding the blade, not carrying it into combat. If you had carried it into combat, no force save death could have stopped the xeno from taking your life.
Long story short, yes, I have a problem with you plot-holing yourself an energy blade.
I was sorta just going for unique with the color...I'll edit it at home. 3G is a pain to edit.
