Battle Reviews

The plot is very well delivered and the missions are well crafted.

My thirty-third battle in the TIE Corps.

An and enjoyable and well designed series of missions - it was fun to go up against Jedi - well worth playing!

The missions in this battle were complex, action packed, and fun. The story was rather lacking though. Each mission was detached from the others. There was no complete storyline, and what there was was too vague for me. But if you just like fun missions, this is a good battle for you.

I appreciated this battle, mainly for the fact that it actually told a story all the way through it. Perhaps the fact that I'd been absent from TIE Fighter for so long made it seem better than it was, but I honestly feel that this was an excellent battle, and is highly reccommended for all Members of the Dark Brotherhood.

I enjoyed this mission a lot, added with an interesting storyline and really into understanding more of the DB, it's a great mission to fly. Sad thing is I couldn't get the A-9 patch working properly, but maybe next time. I recommend this for something new to play with Tie Fighter.

I had to patch the A-9 in even though i didnt fly it?! lame. look people, if youre gonna make us patch a ship in, make it both mission critical and cool. flying A-9s suck, but K-20b is sweet

Scene 1: The Pyr Estate; The Master's Chamber
(Note: As is suspected of many command officers of the Emperor's Hammer, past and present, former EH Admiral Melan Pyr maintains an undocumented estate at an undisclosed location.  Some such retreats are often gifts by unknown benefactors, while others, as in the case of Pyr, are the spoils of clandestine profiteering.)

	"It's the Force" whispered his valet, "I've heard it effects the mind first". 
	"The Dark Force!" corrected the Master's footman.
	They both turned their eyes cautiously towards their master, who sat motionless by the fire.  "He just sits there looking into his  flames!  He's been like that for days.  He's eaten nothing, and will not speak."  remarked the footman in dismay.
	"It is said that he has resigned his rank and everything... Everything he was...Officer, pilot, even his positions as a Dark Jedi... he just gave it all up!" the valet added, his voice both amazed and perturbed.
	"He must have cracked to have done such a thing!  As powerful as he is, he is fortunate not to have lost his life!  It is said that many stronger in the Force than he, have died for less." replied the footman.
	"Yes," agreed the other "That must be why he has come back home to brood"

	The robed figure by the fire turned his eyes toward his servants.  "You speak of me as though I were not in the room.  Am I not in the room?"  hissed the Dark Jedi Master.
	Both men jumped to attention.  "Master Pyr!  We though you were lost... in... in your thoughts sir." stammered the footman.
	Pyr turned his eyes to the fire again.  "Lost... yes, I suppose I am.  Ironic...  I can snuff out your lives with a wave of my hand, and yet control over my own mind has begun to elude me.  I cannot lead the men and women of the Emperor's Hammer nor serve its leader in such a state."
	"Admiral... if there is anything we can..." but Pyr's gaze cut the footman off in mid-sentence.
	"The honor of 'Admiral' is unfortunately no longer mine churl!  You will not address me as such again... understood?"  The two men nodded their heads vigorously. "Now  Leave me!" he snapped.  The servants backed out of their master's chamber with a bow.
	As the heavy plasteel door slid shut, Pyr's attention turned again to his fire.  "The fool is right!  It is the Force.  Can no one else see that these flames are black?  Am I the only one to hear the voices of the dead chattering in my ear?  Well... perhaps I am no longer sound enough to lead a fleet in combat, but my hunger for mastery of the Force gnaws at me more than ever.  It must be sated."

Scene 2: Dark Hall, ?

	Master Pyr had not visited the Dark Hall since his breakdown.  No one was sure what had happened.  Why he had resigned his rank and position and left the Brotherhood.  
	Every Master was immediately alerted to Pyr's approach.  The guards to the doors of the Hall, not sure if they were expected to halt Master Pyr, were relieved to hear the Master Ronin's voice in their heads: 'Let him through'  With Pyr's approach, the guards to the Hall's entrance parted, heads bowed, allowing him to pass.

	Pyr entered through the threshold, his robes billowing, as he approached the chair of Paladin, Grand Master of the Dark Brotherhood.  With his hooded head bowed, the former Herald kneeled and spoke. "My master... "

	The Grand Master leaned forward, drumming the tips of his fingers together.  "Well... Master Pyr!  We thought you'd left us.  What brings you back...hmmmm?"

	"I seek readmittance into the fold, my Lord.  That which I sought to control alone has become less manageable outside these walls.  I must be permitted to return"

	"Hmph! 'Must' you?  Although you have chosen an unfortunate turn of phrase Pyr, these doors have always been open to you.  Rise Master Pyr."  

	"So then...what is it that drove you away and yet drives you back, my friend?"

	"Voices, my Master.  Voices that will not let me be.  I must go.... somewhere..."

	The Dark Lord of the Sith allowed his back to rest into his seat.  His black hair, which had partially covered his face, mystically gathered together and pulled itself neatly to the side.  		"Yes Pyr.  I have heard these voices too... like whispers in someone else's ear.  They have summoned you to a sacred place, just as I have summoned you here before me.  It is a place of great power.  There lies both your destiny, and that of the Order of the Krath."

	"The Krath?  But what have I to do with the Krath, M'Lord?"

	"Everything Master Pyr!  Did you think that the recent misfortunes that have befallen you were by chance alone?  Your career in the Emperor's Hammer, your rank and position were all obstacles to the task before you.  Now that you are no longer a member of the Order of the Sith, you are free to fulfill this destiny I have foreseen."

	"The Sith is strong, and has always been the backbone of the Brotherhood.  But the time has come for the Krath to take their place by their side, for the good of the Brotherhood. You and the priests must make a pilgrimage..."

	"Yes...I see now...A pilgrimage... but to where my Lord?" asked the former Sith.

	"To the ancient birthplace of the Krath: The Empress Teta System, deep within the Galactic Core.  There you will find your spiritual center, and that of the Krath.  It will be an arduous journey, and time is running out.  There is a window that is closing for us, my friend.  I have felt a movement in the Force towards this site, which will place it out of our reach forever.  You must drain that place of its worth before that window is shut.  You and the Krath will be transfigured... made stronger, and the Dark Brotherhood will be more powerful than ever."

	The Grand Master shifted his position and held his palm out to the Dark Jedi before him.  The center of his palm seemed to glow, and a ragged bolt of energy snarled across the distance between the two men, landing on unexposed arm of Melan Pyr.  The former Herald pulled back his sleeve to find a mark, still glowing, upon his forearm.  

	"To this end Master Pyr, I hereby anoint you as High Priest of the Order of the Krath."

	"...My Master..." breathed Pyr, as he once again fell to his knee.

	"Rise High Priest." said Paladin in a tone both friendly and imperious. "You have much work to do, eh?  You will iron out the details as soon as possible."

	"Yes... the voices become ever louder.  I feel their urgency.  Thank you Grand Master."

"Good!  Go then, and make your preparations my friend"

"Yes Master" 

Bowing, Pyr exited the Hall.
