The Axis

There's a great big galaxy, recently discovered by human kind. Humans were greatly surprised as this new discovery, as many of them doubted the existance of other intelligent life forms... Up till now. They have established an outpost and further explored this new area. They have learned that the "local" races do all of their negotiating and such on a kind of space station. In that station, each race has it's section, where that race's representatives live during their stay. Traders and freelancers often visit the station, known as the Core, looking for means of profit. Around every twelve Terran years, a new President of the Core is elected. After learning the Common Language, humans have recently been given their section on the Core and if all goes well, their negotiating skills will let them join the High Council - maybe even take the seat of President of the Core.

Among those protesting against the humans joining the High Council is the insectoid race called Kt'Kr.
Standing six feet tall, these six limbed bipeds have tough chitin armour, but tend to be pretty weak otherwise. This means that although it's hard to hurt one, they're quite unlikely to survive when the armor is pierced. Clothing is only worn by the leaders and the military (if you count extra armor as clothing). They don't tend to live long - officially the oldest Kt'Kr died at the age of 63 Terran years, with the average Kt'Kr lifespan at 49. They live in complexes similar to an anthill, only much larger and more complex.

The Kt'Kr dwell on three sister planets - Deimos, Dauros and Dios - which orbit around eachother in an interesting way. The Deian, Dian and Dauran Kt'Kr are at constant war ever since they found ways of transportation between the three planets. The Kt'Kr representatives reside in the Core as three separate races for for circa 70 Terran years now.

The Kt'Kr military has the greatest infantry in the universe, partly because of their unbelievable numbers. Their soldiers have certain unique abilities.
Dian: their lower arms are replaced with wings
Deian: they're extremely fast runners and have lots of thorns all over their bodies
Dauran: they spit acid that burns through all known metals and chitin, but nothing else

Special abilities: +1 Strength and Dexterity, -1 Charisma and Endurance, resistance to radiation

Other races:

The Race of the Elenes

Appearance: Average height is 5 feet. They are humanoid, but smaller.
Their skin has a brownish tint, but albinos exist. Body hair is minimal,
but they have a large amount on the top of their head. Hair is usually a
dark color, such as brown or black. Because of their rather dark coloring,
they usually wear bright clothing. Clothing is two-piece, and they use
undergarments just as humans do. Dark clothing is considered formal.

Their Planet: Mostly covered by land. The water in their oceans is pure,
but it is in danger of pollution. For this reason, certain shorelines are
designated ?Drinkable? or ?Polluted? accordingly. The terrain is mostly
flat except for the Great Elenial Mountains that ring the entire planet on
the equator. Unlike Terra (Earth's name in the future), the planet only has
two plates which are divided equally into the Northern and Southern
hemispheres. Travel between the two hemispheres is limited. The northern
hemisphere is called Silta, and the southern hemisphere is called Falest.

Their History: The first Elene was (created/evolved/whatever your beliefs
are) around 2000PC* years ago. They developed fire around 1800PC, and metal
about 1500PC. The first organized army came 1000PC, led by the great Lynda
Tsul. He conquered all of Silta, but was assassinated year 945PC. All this
time, Falest had been peaceful and their scientists were close to
discovering how to harness electricity. Unfortunately, the great leader and
madman Bekvan Wuld started a campaign to conquer all of Falest. He was
finally killed in 867PC but he had a unique habit of completely decimating
anything he had conquered and so he had destroyed most of the hemisphere.
The huge recovery cost sapped Falest's resources for the next 500 years,
setting back the scientific progress by nearly a millenium. Nothing of much
importance happened until 87PC, when democracy was introduced. It failed
abysmally and was never tried again. Then they tried communism, but that
was even worse. Finally in 2PC a famed rock climber in Silta decided to
climb the Great Mountains. It took him a year to cross, but he eventually
reached Falest and was astounded to find the state of peace that Falest had
remained in; Silta had been at war nearly all of the 800 years. This marked
the first contact between Silta and Falest. They both were amazed at the
other country. Soon contact became more commonplace and the systems
that both countries had used were combined into one. They continued to
improve together, and Silta had its last war in 1000 UW. Scientific
progress skyrocketed and so did corruption. Over the past 2000 years the
Elenes have become a sneaky race that uses thievery as often as honest
business to gain riches. Their technology is very advanced, including
cloaking devices in their large arsenal.

*The system is set from the first contact between the Hemispheres.
PC is pre-contact, and UW is Unified World, which is after contact. The
years and minutes and such are curiously identical to Earth's. This has
sparked a spirited debate over alien intervention. The current date is 3004
UW.*

Special abilities: +1 Intelligence and Dexterity, -1 Charisma and Strength.
Cloaking: Ships used by the Elenes may run in Stealth mode, rendering them
undetectable by sensors. Visual contact may still be made however. When
weapons are fired, the ship becomes "visible" for a few seconds.

The Roki (Row-Ky)


History: They were once a very intellegent humanoid species. In fact, their intellengence caused them to become what they are today. Millions of years ago, they developed weapons so strong, they were capable of destroying entire continents. In the great war, these weapons were used. Continents were blown apart and billions of Roki were killed. Radioactive elements caused the planet to change, along with the people. The people became more taller, their skin becae like rocks. Their Muscles swelled. While the physical changes were in a better part, their brains shrank. Over millions of years, the once Intellegent humanoid species, became dumb, lumbering peices of rock. For millions of years they fought each other for food, cannibalism was a major role. Only as recent as 1000 years ago, a great leader named Ra'shatal united the speicies, forming a semi civilized race. Science once again takes a major role. A primitive government wasin the making, but with every government comes rebels. These rebels played on the fears and dumb knowledge of the rest of the Roki. Support increased for the rebels. A Civil war was on the verge of happenening. Then, Humans came and attempted to rob the planet of its rich mineral ores. Ra'esteh, the great-great-great grandson of Ra'shatal united the rebels and the rest of the Roki, to fight the human invaders off.

Apperance: The average roki is 10 feet tall. Their skin color is varied, from Marble white to black. It has the texture of rocks. Their muscles are like boulders, they possess incredible strength and endurance. The Ren Roki are smaller, more gentle, and intellegent type of Roki, but they are still large compared to most other species. Most are around 7 feet tall, and their muscles are still relativly large.

Planet: Once as beautiful as earth, it is now a volcanic, rocky wasteland.

Society: They travel in semi-civilized packs. They have knowledge of Fire, they bury their dead, both parents care for the young, they hunt in packs, and have a basic strategic knowledge. A Secluded bunch lives in the southmost part of the world, they are called Fire Roki. They are neutral, and it is rumored that they possess all the intellegence of their humanoid ancestors. They are called Fire roki for they live in the extreme tempertures of volcanos. The Ren Roki are the ones who attempt forms of government, and order.

Special Abilities: +2 to Strength and Endurance, -2 to Intellegence and Agility. Immune to Fire and lightning and most chemicals/radioactive stuff/poison. Most guns do not harm these lumbering beasts. If you are hit by one of their fists, you are lucky to survive. Most are rendered unconcious for hours.

The La-Ta

The La-Ta are a humanoid race that stand about four feet tall. They have pale pink skin and hair colours can be any colour in the rainbow.
They have two pairs of diaphanous wings on their backs (think mosquito-type wings), and are capable of flight and hovering.
They have large oval shaped eyes and their ears come to long points.
They are also fearless fighters and VERY aggressive. They are quick to anger and can't go for long without taking a weapon and hitting someone. Usually hitting another La-Ta with another La-Ta!

They live in a binary system with 13 planets, 6 of which are inhabited by the La-Ta. They call it Home Prime, other races refer to it as 'The Asylum' system.
They are a clan culture and there are about 30 clans spread thoughout the 6 planets of Home Prime.

Dealings with the La-Ta:
The La-Ta do hold a seat on the Core's governing council, but they rarely send a representative. When they do, it is rotated through the clan's various clan leaders - making for very chaotic government, so the rest of the Core usually ignores them, but politely!!!

Race Name: The Esprit (pronounced es-pree)

Description: A peaceful race, they are the foremost diplomats of the known universe and much prefer to negotiate rather than fight, due to their less than intimidating physical appearance. Though their technological prescence is vast, the Esprit have not used their advances for war. They do, however, use it to defend themselves if desperate times arise, and the threat of that yet unrevealed defense has kept invaders away thus far. Legends have far overblown the defense capabilities of the single planet on which they reside, a small, silver mass far from any other inhabited planet. About 5 billion Esprit exist in all.

Many Esprit have come and gone from the high council, and the race heavily opposes the addition of humans to the council due to their lack of specialized skills. The humans' average nature has put them out of most Esprits' favor, but there are still a few who believe that they could rise to the occasion if given a chance on the council. The latter group's numbers have been dwindling as of late, though.

Appearance: The Esprit are not a large or strong race, and instead rely on negotiation and mind games to avoid war. They measure about 3 feet and have four arms and two legs. The race as a whole is very thin and very quick if needs be, but they do not often find themselves in situations where they need to flee. Their heads are large and bulbous (the neck is the only muscular part of an Esprit) and their eyes are large and ink-black. An Esprit rarely shows emotion, even though they feel it very keenly.

Special Abilities: Immune to most psychological effects, can outsmart most anyone all of the time, mildly telepathic (can move, but not lift, small objects).

Roki Slave: ME TIRED! YOU SMALL HUMANS DIE ONE DAY!!!!

Roki Slave 2: YA!!! YOU WITH YOU BIG GUNS AND WEAPONS! WE CRUSH YOU!

Roki Slave 3: YEA!!!!

All the Roki begin raising their arms and throwing their pickaxes down

Human: WORK YOU NASTY BASTARDS!

Roki Slave: LEAVE OUR PLANET ALONE!!

The human takes out his stun gun, and shoots out an energy whip, whipping the Roki, cutting through the hard rock armor.

Roki Slave: ARUGH!!!

The other Roki begin working once again

Human: Now get back to work! I want this entire area mined by the end of the week!!!

The human boss walks back and forth, coming across a rather small Roki, at least compared to the others.

Human: What have you produced??

Ren Roki Slave: N-n-nothing. Y-y-ou gave m-m-m-m-me a b-b-b-b-b-bad spot to m-m-m-mine.

Human: DONT TALK BACK TO ME!!!!!

Ren Roki Slave: Im ssssssorry.

Human: Grr.....

The human takes out his gun again, and releases the whip. This time it strangles the Ren Roki, cutting off his air supply.

Ren Roki Slave: Ugh-Argh-chk!

The human tightens the grip. The Roki's eyes roll into the back of his head, then he just collapses to the ground, dead.

Roki Slave: NO!!!!

He attempts to strike the nearest human guard, but cant reach as he is shackled.

Up on the cliff above, a group of about 20-30 free roki, led by Ra'Esteh, show up and jump down, raiding the camp by suprise.

Ra'Esteh: Die you pathetic humans!!!!!!!

The Free roki unshackle the enslaved ones, and then proceed to kill all 101 human slave masters in the entire camp, rather brutally. Dismemberment is the favorite. Ra'Esteh steals one of their guns, and uses it against ones. The whip cuts right through their weak flesh.

Free Roki: For Ra'Shatal!!!

Free Roki 2: For  Ra'Esteh!!!

Ra'Esteh: Alright. We cannot stay here. Loot their bodies, take anything you may find to be useful, or can be used against us. That includes these guns, anything at all. Take their clothes as well. Let the vultures tend to them. We will flee east to the city of Taak.

Vadskye pulled the trigger, sending an almost invisible beam at the Meferan (a kind of Mafia) leader's chest.  A direct hit scored, and their leader fell.  The toadies would search the area soon, but he would be long gone.  Vadskye collapsed his sniper gun to the size of a handgun before exiting the scene.  Climbing aboard his ship, he was soon long gone, sailing across the galaxy rather aimlessly.  What to do now? He decided to wait for a crisis to come up, as there weren't any right now.  And so he decided to wait.

'Hey you! Barkeep!'
The barman turned around and immediately wished he hadn't. In front of him, beaming up was a little man, about 4 foot high with bright blue/green hair and wings.
'Ah, my good sir. You must be new around here, you see the La-Ta can only dr-'
'Never mind the chit-chat man. I needs a drink! I been in that ship by meself for two days. Fairly makes a man thirsty. Don't mind what it tastes like. Just make it strong and make it QUICKER!'

The barman gulps and gives the little man an oily smile.
'Of course sir, try this. It's a new drink from those new earthlings. They call it whisky.'

The barman watches nervously as the little man downs the drink. When the little man sighs and says 'Ah that was great', the barman sighs in relief. But his hearts skip a beat when he hears the little man say:
'So when's the fight start eh?'

'Ah, good sir. About that. Well you see, usually the other La-Ta that come to Core normally stick to their own section. I understand there are lots of fighting tounaments that happen there. And all night drinking clubs.'

The little mans eyes light up when he hears about the fighting tournaments, and a look of rapture comes into his face when he hears all night drinking.

'Ah mister. Ye've put a spring in me step hearing about that. Sounds like I've landed in paradise. Could ye be directing me to this sector?'

'Well sir, theres an infobooth just across the plaza outside this bar. It's free as well'.

'Ah ye've ben verra kind. I'll be sure ta'reccomend ye ta'all me buddies when I see'em'.

And leaving the barman to contemplate the awful thought of twenty La-Ta descending on his peaceful bar the little La-Ta known as Wee Gordy strode across the plaza towards the infobooth.

Ra'Esteh

You and your small and not very skilled army depart to the city of Taak. All goes fairly well, although many minor conflicts arise within the group. Every now and then a Roki will claim that once again they are not left to decide on their own what to do, and then demand absolute freedom (but not in so many words), which always leads to the death of the rebel and one or two others who tried to stop him. With events like this happening fairly often, you start thinking that they might all kill each other before you reach your goal, when suddenly you notice Taak on the horizon.

Erion Vadskye

You continue your aimless travel through space, when a few moments of not paying attention gets you damn close to a meteor chain. You narrowly dodge a quite big one, but you hear a loud thud. Something small, fast and really hard just penetrated your armor. Hoping that all the engines are intact, you turn off the cloaking devices to save energy - just in case. It's then when you notice that you are critically low on fuel.

Wee Gordy

As you approach the infobooth, you are pushed aside by a tall, shiny figure which then enters the infobooth. Your last glance at the intruder reveals his identity. Those joints, the redness of those limbs... It's got to be a Kt'Kr. Possibly a Dian soldier.

OOC: It just occurred to me that you guys don't know much about this ship.  Think Millenium Falcon.

Vadskye: "Dang.  Before I do anything about that thing, though, I hafta get out of the chain."

After about a minute of backtracking, he was once again floating aimlessly through space.  Hopefully there weren't any ships nearby.  He opened the portal away from the bridge and listened for the origin of the small hissing noise he had heard ever since the impact.  It came from the right...the left...the right...straight...Finally he found it.  Vadskye sighed in relief.  Although the meteorite had passed through the ceiling, it had been stopped when it hit one of Vadskye's custom-built escape pods.  They were designed to withstand asteroids as big as the one Vadskye had almost hit earlier with nothing but a change of course caused by the impact.  Vadskye patched the hole above him with a handy insta-repair for now.  He would fix that next time he stopped at a planet, but he had no intention of doing that yet.  Making his way back to the bridge, Vadskye contentedly slid himself back into his pilot's chair.  Suddenly he saw a large vessel coming right at him!  Vadskye instinctively reached for the Cloaking switch, but then he realized that not only would they probably have visual contact, but he didn't want to reveal the fact that he had cloaking either.  He wished he wouldn't have turned off his cloaking device, but it was too late now.  Vadskye hoped that their intentions weren't hostile.

One of them dirty oul' bug men!

'Hey you, ya big bloody cockroach! Who do ya think ye're pushing? Get oot o'my way before ye get squished!'

The Kt'Kr spins round at the insult and grabs Wee Gordy with both of it's arms. It's wings were tucked behind it's back defensively.
'Look what I caught', it buzzes nastily. 'A little fairy. I wonder if the little fairy would cry if I pulled it's wings off'.

Struggling madly Wee Gordy yells, 'I'm no bloody fairy ya geat big beetle. Put me down and square me fair and we'll see who gets their wings pulled off!'

A circle of onlookers has gathered to watch this little piece of street theatre.

Wee Gordy aims a solid headbutt at the Kt'Kr's chest area.
THWACK! The sound echoes throughout the plaza, and when the spots clear from Wee Gordy's eyes he sees that there's not even a chip in the bug's armour!

'AAAAAAAAA'LL KILL YE, YA GREAT BIG LADYBUG! PUT ME DOWN!!!'

Suddenly the crowd parts as a security drone bustles up and blares:
Cease and desist your behaviour. This is a warning. Failure to comply will bring penalties. Desist and disperse to your sectors

The Kt'Kr reluctantly lets Wee Gordy down, but before it parts it buzzes quietly 'This isn't over fairyboy. Izik will remember your face....'

Wee Gordy snarls and tenses to spring at the retreating bug, but the security drone blares again:
Desist and disperse to your sectors

Stalking to the map screen, Wee Gordy locates the La-Ta sector, or the 'Drinking Quarter' as Core inhabitants. He makes it's way towards it muttering darkly:
'Stupid bucket o' bolts spoiling a good fight. I coulda taken that overgrown flea. Izik his name is? Well, I'll remember that as well buggyboy.............'

"Oh, give them a chance, Alistair. Who knows, the humans may surprise us all and turn out to be more effective leaders and diplomats than any of us, including you."

The Esprit councilman shot the La-Ta representative a dirty look, then retorted his claims that humans should be allowed on the council.

"Leave it to a La-Ta to show up only when he can gain from his position here. You only want humans on the council so that you can more easily ally with the people of Terra and then suck up all of their resources like you have so many others. They are tasteless, bland bags of flesh that don't deserve to be a part of the Core, much less this council."

"That's only your opinion! All you have is what you believe to be true, and your judgemental race can't even get that right."

"Okay, then. Show me one instance where a human has made a significant difference at any moment since their arrival here."

"We just have to give them a chance..."

"No, we've been too patient with these humans thus far, they are so consumed by petty greed and competition that they lose sight of what's really important: contribution. Humans only look out for themselves."

With that, the President stood and began to speak on the matter.

(OOC: Woock, could you use the next update to give a bit more info on the President and High Council. I'm really at a loss for what you are looking for in these characters.)

Erion Vadskye

The ship remained visible for a brief moment, after which it had disappeared. Just a fraction of a second before it was gone, you noticed the shocked expression of the human pilot. Looks like they weren't too happy with this encounter either...

Wee Gordy

You arrived at the entrance to the La-Ta sector, when a strange sight catches your eye. A Kt'Kr this close to the La-Ta sector is a damn weird thing indeed! He's whispering to a human. When he notices you, he glares at you for a moment, hands the human a tiny bottle and walks away.

EDIT: Shadowcaster just pointed out that I have made a stupid mistake, so his update is no more. I shall rewrite it a bit later.

Vadskye sighed.  His prescence was known here now, and he would have to travel to a different region.  Before he did that, though, he should get the hole patched up.  Vadskye checked his charts and found a suitable planet nearby.  He set off before the insta-repair wears off.

Ra'Esteh: What in the....

Ra'Esteh notices a child standing by it, odd child, appears to be built..he has a red tint to his skin

Ra'Esteh: You! Kid! Go, this is no place for children!

Reint: I am no Child, boy. I am a Fire Roki, my name is Reint. I was summoned here to identify this....Apparently the humans left it.

Ra'Esteh: .. A Fire Roki..well, Reint..what is it??

Reint: According to my studies, It is a spaceship. Back in the Great Before, we had use of these. We Traveled all throughout the skies. This appears to be in perfect working condition. I have decided to fly it. I want you to come, escape this planet. Bring 10 of your most intellegent warriors, and 10 of your most strongest. Make it 10 Females and 10 Males as well. We will leave, and repopulate.

Re'Esteh: I dont really know......

Reint: Then i wll leave now, alone.

Re'Esteh: Fine.


"Reint is more like these pitiful Humans than a Roki. I will Go. I will also return" Re'Esteh thinks to himself

Need some insecticide.....

Those damned bugs are everywhere! And what was one doing so near the La-Ta sector. Those two races hated eachother pasionately. Many wars had been fought between them, and at best an uneasy ceasefire held them, in letter if not in spirit. And one of them new peoples, those humans were talking to them?
Wee Gordy's opinion of humans dropped a notch. Though they did make good drinks. That whisky was something a La-Ta could get a taste for.
Wee Gordy wondered what was in the bottle the human had? Probably wasn't drinkable so he didn't think about it very long.

He headed into the nearest bar. What followed was an assault on all of the major alcoholic substances behind the bar....the less said about it the better. There was singing, maybe karaoke.....best not to dwell on it.
Wee Gordy woke up the next morning in an unfamiliar bed. The furry feeling to his tongue told him it had been a good night, and the slight ringing in his ears told him it had been an even better fight. He just hoped this wasn't the Core's jail.

But as he walked to the door, staggered would be a better description, it opened into a bright room. There were posters on the wall, all of the same ilk. As Wee Gordy was admiring the similarities, and differencs in biology of a human female and a La-Ta one, a voice behind him said cheerily,
'Ah you're awake. Breakfast?'
Wee Gordy turned round to see a human male, probably a foot taller than him, and very fat.
'Who're ye?' he asked.
'I thought you might ask that. You were a little merry last night. I carried you here after you got a little bit enthusiastic on that Dorfl'.

A hazy recollection floated through Wee Gordy's brain. The Dorfl were a small rotung people with three arms and eyes on long stalks. He had been trying to headbutt the thing, but had gotten confused when it had no head. He had settled for tying it's eye stalks in a knot.

'Ah he'll live', he muttered. 'Was it a good fight? Tables broken? Chairs overturned?'

At that the fat human broke into a broad grin.
'It surely was my La-Ta friend. Most entertaining. Which brings me to the reason I put you up for the night'.

'And why's that?' Wee Gordy asked, I've heard about some o' your human goings-on. And I can tell ye now pally, I'm not that kinda La-Ta!'

'Oh Lord above no!' said the man smiling, I meant your fighting ability. I've seen you La-Ta fight, and let me tell you Mr. You're a natural. You've heard about the Gladiator contests here haven't you?'

Wee Gordy had heard something...maybe last night...he nodded anyway, wondering when Mr. Fatman would get to the point.

'Well, I manage a team of Gladiators that compete in the contests. A few humans, a Dorfl, and a few Elenes. But I don't have a La-Ta in my stable and I think you could really make it big. Whaddya say eh?'

'N' why should I join you Mr Roly Poly? Why couldn' I jus' go it alone eh?'

'Because. The rules say you got to have a manager. And the La-Ta all stick together generally. But you did happen to mention how you stole your daddy's spaceship, and how you weren't exactly keen to meet up with anyone who maybe knows him......?'

Wee Gordy glowered at the fat human 'Is that a threat Mr. Blubber? Cos I would'nae be takin' very kindly to threats...'

'No. No threat!' the fat man said hurriedly, holding his hands up in front of him as if to demonstrate his innocence.
'I just saw a chance to make you this offer, one that we'll both benefit from in my opinion. And I was kind enough to pay your damages to the bar last night. You appear to have drunk all of your money. I thought you could earn some by working with me...?'

Wee Gordy considered it. Drinking money, and he got to fight people as his job! It didn't take long to decide.

'I'll take yer offer Mr....what's yer name? I cannae remember, had a wee bit to drink last night...as ye know.'

The fat man grinned broadly now that Wee Gordy had accepted his offer. 'My name is Mr. Maximus, but you can call me Max. I'll give you the address of my gym, there are rooms above it that you can live in with my other fighters. I have very few rules but the most important one is: Don't fight with your team-mates. You can spar against them in training, but no maiming, broken bones, severed limbs...whatever. Otherwise the medical bill comes out of your wages.'

'Sounds fair to me Max. Now tell me. Are there any of the bugs in these contests? I'd love to go up against one o' them big cockroaches!'

Max shook his head. 'Kt'Kr don't take part in the La-Ta contests. They have their own gladiator games. But La-Ta are banned from competing in them. The Core council has been trying to change their minds, but...well you know first hand that La-Ta and Kt'Kr can't abide eachother'.

'What? No' allowed ta compete! Ye know why? I'll tell ye why! It's cos they're bloody scared ta face a good fighter I'll bet ye. Put me in a ring against one o' them bugs and ye'll se a good fight. And one dead bug at the end of it!'

'Fatalities are illegal in the contests. All but the most serious of wounds can be healed without a trace, but the Core Council takes a dim view of fatalities in the games. And since I'm your manager, then I'd be liable to pay any compensation to the families of whoever you kill. And guess wher I'd get the money.
That's right, I'd take it out of your wages.
As for a La-Ta vs. a Kt'Kr. Well I think I'd give my right arm for the chance to see that. After all, I could get my arm re-grown. But I doubt it'll happen in my life-time. Anyways, enough chit-chat. Here's the gym address. Go introduce yourself to the others and find a room to sleep in. And remember Wee Gordy. No fighting with your team-mates!'

'Aye Max. No fighting with yer team-mates. Makes perfect sense ta' me'.

So Wee Gordy left Max's apartment and made his way through the La-Ta quarter towards Max's gym.

Re'Esteh: I have my people. Lets go.

Reint: Good...Very Good.

*The 21 Roki enter the strange object. It is very large and has alot of shiny buttons*


Re'Esteh: Ta! Dont Touch anything!!!!!!! Rekin! Put that down!!!!!! Darlae! THAT IS NOT FOOD!!!!!!

Reint: I tell you what. Why dont you all go sit in this little room here.

*Reint leads them to a quarter, and pushes a button on a door, closing it*

Ra'Esteh: What magic is this!!

Reint: Its not magic, its Science.

Ra'Esteh: I hate science....

Ra'Esteh: By the way..how did you learn all this. I know you Fire Roki are supposed to be smarter than us, but this is surely way too advanced.

Reint: Oh..that..allow me to show you to our..captian.

*Reint leads him to a room with the most shiny buttons, and there is a human, a small human, around 5'7, 140 lbs, brown hair, he is gagtied, his feet are shackled to the ground, and two very very large Roki stand over him, watching his every move.*

Reint: After we...interrogated him...We found out about an Outpost, where different species conduct diplomacy and trade. He will take us there, or he will die..not a quick death though.

Re'Esteh: Im not sure what to make of this.

Reint: Think about it! This could be our chance for glory! We will once again become a super technological Advanced species. We will rule the galaxies! We will have a fleet...

Re'Esteh: I Dont understand a word you are saying.

Reint: Ugh....In other words, we will be very very smart. Is that simple enough for your plain roki mind??

Re'Esteh: Grr...

Suddenly, an alarm starts blaring. In a panic, the Roki burst out of the quarter.

Roki: What be that noise!!!!!!! Turn it off!!

Reint: Human! What is this nonsense!!!!! What is going on!!!

Human: I-I dont know! It seems to be an asteroid heading right towards the hull. In 10 minutes it will impact. Allow me to do evasive maneuvars!

Ra'Esteh: WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT! JUST GET US OUT OF THIS MESS!

Human: I HATE YOU GIANT BEASTS! WE WILL ALL ENSLAVE YOU ONE DAY! YOU STUPID, DIM-WITTED BASTARDS!!! YOU WILL BECOME SLAVES TO THE HUMAN RACE! YOU WILL DIE!!! DIE!!!! HAHAHA!!!!! YOUR GONNA DIE!! THE HUMANS WILL RULE THE GALAXY!! DID YOU HEAR ME!! YOUR GONNA D-

In one angry swipe, the human's head is suddenly rolling on the ground aimlessly. A second later, the asteroid hits the ship, the entire back end is missing

Reint: Quick you all! This Way! Life boats are here!!!! Theres only 4..Only 1 Person per ship!!  Screw you all! Im leaving you! Goodbye!

Ra'Esteh: I think not!!!!

Ra'Esteh grabs Reint and tosses him across the room, rendering him unconsious.

Ra'Esteh: Alright!! 2 People per Ship!! I dont care who just get in and push the biggest button you can find! He hops into  a ship with a female roki, and pushes the biggest button. Suddenly the ship shoots out, and into the darkness of space. He sees a large odd shaped thing floating in space..

Ra'Esteh: Were gonna crash!!!!!


*OOC Note: The thing floating in space is the space station.

Erion Vadskye

You approach a not very nice looking planet. As you prepare to land, you see a few evacuation pods shooting out of a nearby spaceship.

Wee Gordy

Entering Max's gym, a bunch of fighters of various races come into view. One of the humans stops training when he noticed you and walked over with a grin.
'Haha, lookie here! The new guy's here!', the man says.
The rest of the fighters took a break from whatever they were doing and came to take a look at the newcomer.
'Max speaks highly of you, lad. But are you really that good?', the Human says. 'We would like to see what you're capable of. You get to choose your challenge. Number one - good old fashioned boxing against Crippled Onion,' the Dorfl takes a step forward. 'Number two - cross knocks* against Wiggyman,' an Elene takes a step forward, 'or plain wrestling against Static.'
'Who's Static?', you ask.
The man grins and says 'Me'.

*in this competition the opponents stand on opposite ends of a cross, each arm 3m long and 20cm wide. Each opponent gets a 1m pole. The goal is to knock the opponent off the cross.

Alistair

Once the whispering stops, the president says 'The Humans have been residing on The Core for two months now. As we all know, the High Council and the Humans have agreed that at this point we would vote whether they will join the councils or not. Let the voting begin!', the president sits down.
After a short while of looking at a large screen on one of the walls, the president speaks once more. 'As you can all see, 62% are in favour, while 38% are against Humans entering the High Council. All I have left to say is', the president grins, 'good luck to my Human rival in the upcoming presidential election!'

Ra'Esteh

Flying through space with your female companion, you get very close to the object which seems much larger than on first glance. When you think you are about to collide, a gigantic door opens. You land and hear a loud, echoing voice 'Welcome to the Core. Enjoy your stay!'
When you leave the ship, a La'Ta in a blue uniform approaches you and says 'Name, race, occupation?'

After the meeting was adjourned, a plot began to brew. Alistair would not stand for this mockery of politics. Allowing humans on the council, much less into the presidency, was laughable at best. How such a "wise" group of leaders could even think of allowing monkeys to govern alongside the leaders of the Core was a travesty to Alistair, and something had to be done to right that wrong. He approached the president and revealed his plan to do just that.

"Sir," he said with as fake a respect as he could muster up, "I believe that we have all made a mistake today voting humans on the council. I just thought I'd warn you that you will have more than one opponent in the upcoming election. Good luck next month." As he walked away, he muttered under his breath, "Cause you're gonna need it."

Alistair's announcement to the Esprit sector was met with much support and relief that someone opposing human membership on the council was running for the seat that led it. Over half of the entire sector vowed to campaign for Alistair, a great boost to any election bid. He smiled. With the backing of his own people, how could he lose?

But this election would be tougher to win than he thought.

Ra'Esteh: BRACE YOURSELF!!!!!

Female Roki: What is that thing!?

Ra'Esteh: I Bet it has something to do with the humans.

They get closer and closer to the object. They grab anything they can find, and close their eyes, all of a sudden, everything stops

Ra'Esteh: Am i still alive??

Suddenly, the door opens, and a odd looking creature in a blue uniform looks at them. "Name, Race, Occupation"

Ra'Esteh: What the...?

Female Roki: I am Sandea, this is Ra'Esteh. We are Roki, and we are lost. Where are we?

Aye I'll take yer challenge!

'I'll take your challenge big man. I'll take all three of ye in a row is what I'll do!'

The fighters laugh and the Dorfl shrills 'No need to show off little man. This is just a bit of fun to get to know you'. His eyes blink rapidly and his laugh is a long whistle.

Wee Gordy smiles back at them. 'Well it'll not be much fun for me ta just beat up one o' yez. What's the matter, 'fraid I'll show yez up eh?'

The laughter cuts off and the other fighters look at Static. He look Wee Gordy up and down and says 'have it your way little man. So who first?'

Wee Gordy points at the Elene. 'I think I'll try the cross-knocks thingummy first. Sounds like fun!'

Wiggyman gives Wee Gordy a smile, just short of baring his teeth and points to the cross-knocks platform, explaining the rules. Wee Gordy laughs and climbs up the ladder, catching the pole that Static throws to him.
Wiggyman shouts down to the other fighters 'Well at least he knows how to keep his balance!'
A few of the fighters laugh, but most are intent on watching Wee Gordy and Wiggyman.

'On three', shouts Static. 'One, two, THREE!'

Wiggyman moves quickly, darting forward and thrusting the pole out like a spear, trying to go for the quick victory, but Wee Gordy - a natural born fighter anticipted it, and as the pole thrusts towards him he dodges and catches Wiggyman's pole, yanking it hard. And right out of Wiggyman's hands. The fighters below gasp, obviously they had never seen Wiggyman disarmed so quickly.
Giving a little bow to Wiggyman, who had retreated to his platform, Wee Gorgy throws him back his pole and assumes a ready stance.
Wiggyman catches it out of the air and gives Wee Gordy a nod of respect. He won't underestimate the little man again.
Keeping one foot on the wide platorm he holds his pole like a sword, keeping a two handed grip on it this time. But Wee Gordy advances steadily, holding his pole like a quarter-staff, twirling it in front of him. Wiggyman, swings a solid blow to the chest area, but it's parried easily, and Wee Gordy pushes off the pole with his own, slightly unbalancing Wiggyman.
Wee Gordy then uses his own special technique.
Fluttering his wings, he hovers with his feet trailing along the cross-piece and advances towards Wiggyman, aiming blow after blow at the Elene's head chest and knees. Wiggyman desperately tries to parry the blows, and shift his grip on his own pole, becoming more unsteady with every blow Wee Gordy lands.
In desperation he aims a counter-blow at Gordy's head, but Wee Gordy bats the pole out of the way, the force of it partially spinning Wiggyman around, and with one final neat sweep at the Elene's feet, Wiggyman topples off the cross and lands in the safety-netting underneath it.

Wee Gordy flutters down to ground level, still twirling his pole, and as he reaches the floor in front of Static he drives one end of it into the ground and says in a cheery voice,
'Ok, let's try the Onion-boy next!'

Vadskye wondered why all the escape pods were leaving the ship.  His scanners showed no immediate trouble.  But then the scanners showed that the escapees were Roki, and it made sense.  The Roki probably simply didn't know how to fly it.  Oh well.  It was no concern of his.  Vadskye spotted a hangar on the station and touched down.

Alistair

As you leave the conference chamber, you encounter a well dressed Human.
'Jim Daniels, pleased to meet you!', the man grins and shakes your hand. 'You guys were just voting about us joining the Council, right?'
You glare at him and mutter 'Yes.'
'So, are we in or are we in?', he laughs.
'Yes', if words could kill, the man would now be splattered all over the floor.

Ra'Esteh

The little one sighs.
'Have you rockheads never heard of The Core?'
'Not really', Sandea says, 'what is it?'
'The Core', the La-Ta looks mildly annoyed, 'is the giant lump of metal you are currently residing in. What's with him?', he points at you with a small and oblong object.
You stop looking around and look at the La-Ta with a mildly surprised expression. 'What? Oh, nothing.'

Wee Gordy

After a short explanation of the rules, you and Crippled Onion put on your boxing gloves and enter the ring.
'Round one!', Static shouts.
'C'mon, onion boy, take your best shot!', you grin at the Dorfl.
You rush at him and gather your strength, when suddenly you see Onion's fist from the shortest distance possible. The impact sends you backwards, making a flip in the air. Avoiding collision with the floor, you make use of your wings and stand upright again.
'Hey! That's cheating!', the Dorfl glares at you.
You look at Static, and he nods. This isn't going to be nearly as easy.

Erion Vadskye

As you enter the hangar, you see a few humans. They don't seem to be very happy to see you.
'Who the hell are you?', one of them says.

The little one sighs.
La-Ta: Have you rockheads never heard of The Core?

Sandea: Not really, what is it?

La-Ta(annoyed) the core, is this giant peice of metal you are currently standing on.

Ra'Esteh: Yes, i dont really care. Just tell me how to get home before i crush your head like a  rock wart.

La-Ta: Sure. That will be 7,000 in UC.

Ra'Esteh: What the hell is UC??

La-Ta: Universal Currency..

Ra'Esteh: All i got are these few peices of Zin.

La-Ta: What the Hell???

The La-Ta's eyes widen as Ra'Esteh pulls out several pure gold marbles.

La-Ta(In a somewhat friendlier voice): So..where you guys come from...is there alot of this???

Ra'Esteh: Plently. The Humans are currently enslaving our people, mining our planet.

La-Ta: So! Thats where their gold has been coming from. The Council will certianly be VERY happy to know this. Enslaving other races, especcially primitive ones, is a direct violation of the code.

Ra'Esteh: Look. I dont Care. I just want to get home. Is this good enough?

La-Ta: Its good, but its not good enough. A quick way to get money is to enter this upcoming tournament. Register yourself and your wife.

Sandea: We arent married.

La-Ta: Whatever. Anyways, both of you register. Its just a pure gladiator match. Winner will get a cash prize. You two certianly have the power and definitly the potential.

The La-Ta give's them directions, and they walk off, they wince every step on the metal, as the clanks are somewhat irritating

Ra'Esteh: I never knew there were this many species.

He Points to a giant bug looking thing, amazed.

Kt'Kr: What are you looking at!

Sandea: Dont stare! shh

Ra'Esteh: Nothing...
