Hello Command.

We were going to begin going to the coordinates sent to us earlier for this strange experiment that was reported, however we were attacked. During briefing when the crewman were listening to orders, we were surprise attacked by Munificent numbers REDACTED. We are still curious how they caught wind of us going to the mission and how they knew our location. Our ship AI has turned up with no foreign trackers on or off ship. This munificent acted a bit more strangely and knew exactly where to hit to disable our power instantly, we have since put in a request to move points of interest on the BLN venator just in case. We were immediately bombarded with waves of droids however thanks to our excellent RC members, we were back up in running in no time. We were able to turn back the tide of battle and raided the Munificent for any information possible. Info from a terminal was gotten before it was destroyed. Data will be attached alongside this transmission. 

Over and out,

Junior Officer Acadian

Hello Command.

Apologies for being late for the requested log on the attack from the coordinates you sent. The munificent had no idea we were coming so when boarded, we didn't have much issue going through it. Your info was also correct about the tactical droid being on board.  The clones and jedi brought back the droid's head from the attack.  The information taken from it will be uploaded alongside this log of course. If this would give any data on the scientist's location please let us know immediately. 

Also, thanks for updating the BLN Venator's weak point locations. Hopefully it will stall surprise attacks in the future for us to react more timely to kick their ass.

Over and out,

Junior Officer Acadian

Hello Command.

I understand your angry due to the unorthodox procedures went through to get through the blockade around the planet. The only way we saw fit was to sneak through. Either way, you will most definitely be pleased to hear that it went well. The munificent we found going to the planet was intercepted and commandeered by the troops. I was incapable of doing much more since I had to position the Acclamator I was on a bit farther away, out of sight. I was given a detailed report by one of the naval crewman on board during the attack. Crewman Quex was the one that was able to get in and fly the munificent past enemy lines utilizing the tactical droid's ship codes. This was where I lost helmet cam and most contact with the troopers due to jammers on the planet.

rp_scifi0000.jpg

According to troopers, they went down on the surface via a droid dropship. I still have zero clue how they hid on that thing but I keep hearing reports of it being "Stuffy", my claustrophobia acts up just thinking about it. They landed safely at the factory to be able to shut down any operations there. It seemed like they were mining for an unknown ore. The drill utilized reached the Planet's crust near the core. We are still investigating the ore they dug up but there isn't much of it. Seems to be very rare. The troopers then made their way out of the factory once the place was shut down. Reports from the troopers state that the scientist was not very fond of the droids and rather used his own soldiers. These enemy forces were unknown and have not been identified in the records yet. Further investigating is necessary however they are more then likely mandalorian based humanoids. The scientist completely relied on his forces at the primary operating base he was located in. It was difficult to push into due to the shield generator fortifying the structure but the enemy force crumbled once it went down. The scientist refused the escape apparently even though there was a munificent hovering over the base. We don't know if this is due to his own command or the Seperatists'. Either way, he fought back by going into his own self-made robot. It was difficult to get through and took the lives of many that went down on the planet but it went down. The scientist ejected before it exploded and was mostly unharmed and unconscious when captured. I was able to get through the blockade by causing a distraction on the other side of the planet and was able to get out before the main forces came back. The scientist is still on board in heavy containment and we are awaiting further orders on what to do with him.

Thank you for putting your trust into me to lead this mission and I hope you aren't too mad on the risks taken.

Over and out,

Junior Officer Acadian.

Junior Officer Acadian,

We have overlooked your reckless maneuvers and must congratulate you on your recent victories. We hope you understand how were harsher due to the fact that it was a higher risk assessment given to Junior Officer, however, all officers must prove themselves somehow. With these victories we will be promoting you to an official Officer of the Grand Army of the Republic. You have proved yourself to be able to lead the troopers. With this, you are also given orders to begin interrogations on the scientist whenever possible. We still have yet to find a proper use of the ore found on the planet however he nearly dug up all of them so please include this in your line of questioning. It should lead to what the project he was working on about, codename, Project Sigma

Once again, a congratulations to you Officer Acadian and we hope to see more from you soon.

Hello Command.

Apologies for the bad news but, interrogations of the scientist did not go as planned. We were attacked by some unknown ship. It didn't seem to resemble anything from the CIS that has been seen before and it doesn't seem to come up in Republic records.  This unknown threat seemed to know exactly when we were sending the scientist on the Burst Link Venator for questioning. Hell, they even knew which Venator to target in the first place. 

rp_venator_extensive_v1_40003.jpg

They also attacked at the exact time I left in my Acclamator to go back to battle stations in the REDACTED  part of the galaxy for research on a threat from the Outer Rim. I believe they may have access up to level REDACTED though I am unable to prove that besides this one incident. It seemed too convenient. 

Their troops also seem to be fairly different from battle droids as well. Not a single CIS ship was seen in the battle either. rp_venator_extensive_v1_40004.jpg

They seem to be actual life forms instead of robots. Well... sort of. When we cut into the suits it seems to just be an outer shell of the strange life forms. They could be more considered cyborgs instead with how they are both living but mixed with robotic parts. When we ran DNA samples for any known races, they seemed to all differ with which planet they came from. We are unable to find out whether or not free will and proper brain function is still there or not. We will have to further investigate. This may have something to do with Project Sigma since obviously the CIS were incapable of carrying it out. I will update you further later on with any findings.

Over and out,

Officer Acadian.

Hello Command.

While I was doing different missions, awaiting orders on what to do next considering this new threat, I realized something. What if they didn't operate within Republic/CIS space. I saw one planet that was listed as "Abandoned" and sent out a search party. We couldn't get much info from recon due to the amount of pollution on the planet. The fog was so thick, the troopers described it like walking through jelly. We got in contact with the Burst Link troops to begin attacking the base.  The attack was successful, even with the fog in the way. Their bases were largely underground which was more then likely the reason why it took so long to find. We didn't get much info unfortunately. All we got was a; weird browser history, coordinates to a different base, and a couple of messages. Those messages didn't talk about much but we did find a part of what they call themselves. They called themselves, an Empire.

Over and out,

Officer Acadian.

Hello Command.

We have successfully gone to the other base and found the scientist that got captured. He killed himself. He left a note that says he's sorry for releasing a monster of a God upon the galaxy. We have found no info on what this "monster" was at all.  We did find a crashed sith ship that was carrying a Sith Holocron. Unfortunately, the imperials got it first as well as taken the sith on board. The naval taking care of the ship were all dead.  It was a place filled with many different bases. We went from one to another cleaning up whatever imperial troops they had. Finally we got to the end where we found bodies of Jedi and Sith. They were already dead but something seemed off. The prison guard quickly retreated and flew off with the SIth holocron before we even realized what was going on. 

Upon further medical and Jedi evaluation, something seemed to take their connection to the force. Alongside this, the Sith and Jedi was actually not dead but nearly since they couldn't even have control of their bodies. I wonder if they were even conscious. They are dead as of now however due to the lack of any ability to get them back to normal. May their souls rest in peace. 

Over and out,

Officer Acadian.

Hello Command.

We are going to be moving to the planet REDACTED to begin defending the Republic base. At the moment, the Burst-Link venator seems to be MIA and they also... blew up their temporary replacement ship, so we'll be going in my Acclamator. Hopefully we can succeed. 

Update: The ship suddenly shot off into hyperspace. It left men, equipment, and dropships. We have no idea why but we cleaned everything else up. Let us know if anything happens.

Officer Acadian,

You must drop everything now and get straight to the Jedi temple in the sector your in. I will be sending the coordinates shortly. There seems to be an attack going on and a distress signal has been sent out. Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, is currently unavailable due to multiple attacks happening across that side of the galaxy. No one at the temple has answered our calls since its been sent out. You and your men are currently the closest. 

Sending Coordinates now.

Hello Command.

We got your coordinates and raced to the temple immediately. You should have seen the place. It wasn't even a fight  for them, it was a slaughter. I don't understand this person's end goal. We cannot confirm that every Jedi stationed there is dead and we need to go back to check eventually whenever it is safe. The place also needs a good cleaning, lots of wreckage. The archive room also was completely destroyed in the fighting, most of the information there is most definitely destroyed. Whoever that was we saw at the end that tore through us like we were nothing more but fodder. He has a lightsaber and uses the dark side of the force. The Jedi felt his presence like a "shockwave" according to those around. Hell even the troopers around might have felt his presence, I sure did back on the damn ship when he showed himself. Unfortunately, Sergeant Major Malef from the ARF battalion has lost his life. May he rest in peace.

We need to gather more information on this person. Let us know anything if any information comes up. 

Over and out,

Officer Acadian.

Officer Acadian,

Our condolences for such a lost I hope ARF rebounds from this. You given full authorization to begin investigations into whatever has been happening. Give us a call if you have any questions, even if we can barely answer any of them. We did however find some info from the recordings that was leftover from the invaded bases. It took quite a while, but thankfully, our ARC troopers can slice into anything. The Empire is named The Immortal Empire. There is no mentions of the name of that "thing" you saw besides, The Palm, it seems to be a nickname he goes by. It mentioned something of hands and fingers but nothing specific. This is making us worry that there may be more just like him. I recommend beginning your research there.

In other news, the CIS have also contacted us. Sith temples have also been under attacked and as you mentioned, Holocrons have also been taken from them as well. They are also complaining about bases being attacked at an increased rate just like us. They have suggested a temporary and very VERY small truce. 

We have accepted this truce. 

From this day forward, all missions regarding this "Immortal Empire" may be done with the aid of the CIS forces. They did say however that anything outside of this matter, they will continue fighting us. We are backed into a corner and are unable to decline. What stops this so called Palm from just going to Coruscant and destroying us entirely. You saw the temple. You saw his power. 

We have set you and the rest of the Burst Link up to discuss the terms. You will hear from a Tactical Droid soon.

Hello Command.

We have gotten contacted by the tactical droid earlier this evening. I was accompanied by; Jedi Consular Sendil, 212th Captain Kerk, Temple Guard Sentinel Ceneric, Admiral Quex, and a reprogrammed BZ droid that goes by "Bulwark". The discussions were short and was fairly quick to the point on what each side wanted. The demands of the CIS wasn't too extreme. We did attempt to get some more help from their major generals like General Grievous or Count Dooku but unfortunately they refused. They are still adamant about fighting in the core rim worlds to prevent us from getting control on top of dealing with this threat. Nonetheless, we will be getting quite a lot of battle droids to back up our men. We might be able to discuss more in the future or any aid from their sith lords. It would be easier.

The droid mentioned though that they were able to capture a live test subject from the Immortal Empire army. You should have seen that monster, sir. It was a fucking nightmare walking on two legs. Thankfully, he did come with quite strong cuffs to keep him "contained". I say it like that because I feel like the monster didn't want to put up a fight intentionally. This was shown when we got it into the brig where we began questioning. 

Primary questioners: Council member Sendil and Admiral Quex

Guards: Temple Guard Knight Chris Bob and Temple Guard Sentinel Ceneric 

Extra: BZ 'Bulwark'

Supervised by: Officer Acadian

I'll send the recording and transcript. It should be attached to this recording when you receive it.

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////

An unidentified Immortal Empire trooper stands in the jail cell. It is seen lashing out at the cell door as the 4 men and the reprogrammed droid attempt to figure out what to do with it.rp_jania_exile_v20001.jpg

Ceneric: Well [Chris Bob], lets get into position to defend the brig.

Chris Bob sighs and assumes position next to the brig entrance on one side. Ceneric assumes position on the side closest to the cell with the IE Trooper.

Sendil: Do we know what questions in particular we want to ask? 

Officer Acadian: No. We are sort of making some up to figure out any information if we can get any. Hell, I say we should just kill it and cut into the damn monster. 

Sendil: No. We will interrogate first to find out any information. If we can't then we can kill. One way or another, it isn't leaving this Brig alive.

Officer Acadian sighs.

The reprogrammed droid 'Bulwark' goes through sign language. "We should attempt to restrain it possibly."

Officer Acadian, Counselor Sendil, Admiral Quex, and Captain Kerk all nod to each other in agreement. 

Quex: Let the shield down, the Bulwark droid is stronger then a juggernaut. It should be able to make quick work of this "thing"

Captain Kerk walks over to the button controlling the cell door and allows the shield to fall

"Bulwark" steps into the cell and attempts to shove the Imperial Trooper against the wall to calm the aggressive unknown trooper down.

The trooper is then seen breaking its cuffs in one quick movement and grabs the Bulwark droid by its B2 like head. Its hand goes straight through the droid's armor and is seen pulling out multiple wires as the Bulwark makes "droid" noises for help.

Sendil force pushes the trooper back, making it hit the wall, before helping the droid get out of the cell. Kerk is then seen reclosing the door before the trooper lunges.

The trooper is seen attempting to break out the cell by punching the rayshield. It thankfully holds.

Sendil: Well that's not going to work.

Quex: Can you by any chance utilize the force to persuade it into answering? The thing is obviously not intelligent.

Sendil: I can try.

Sendil reaches out his arm, focusing the force onto the brain of the captured trooper. The trooper is then seen grabbing at its head like it has a major headache. Sendil is then seen shaking slightly before finally the trooper seems to stare directly at Sendil. 

Sendil continues utilizing the force as he begins questioning

Sendil: Can you speak?

The trooper begins resisting but eventually it shakes it head reluctantly, "No."

Sendil: Alright. Please answer my questions so we can understand whats going on.

Quex: What are you going to ask?

Kerk: Could probably ask about what attacked the Jedi temple. What did the Tactical Droid call it? Oh. The Palm.

Sendil nods and begins questioning.

Sendil: Is The Palm the one that attacked the temple.

The trooper reluctantly nods, "Yes."

Sendil: Is this so called Palm the leader of the Immortal Empire?

The trooper relucantly nods, "Yes."

Sendil: Is there any other leaders of the Immortal Empire?

The trooper relucantly nods, "Yes."

Quex: Well shit.

Sendil: Is it a council of some sorts?

The trooper reluctantly nods, "Yes."

Sendil: Any other questions?

Quex: Could begin asking about the trooper itself? Might find something important out.

Sendil: Are you a full lifeform or a robot or some sort of cyborg like mixture?

The trooper grabs its head and punches the wall 3 times. Dents are left in the heavily secure side from its unnatural strength.

Sendil: I'm assuming that means cyborg? I was sort of expecting something a bit different. More like full robot.

The trooper reluctantly nods, confirming the cyborg bit.

Acadian: Well no shit its some sort of life form. Your using the force on it right now.

Sendil: Oh yeahhhhh.

All parties laugh (besides the trooper of course).

Sendil: Are your cybernetics necessary for survival?

The trooper reluctantly nods, "Yes."

Quex: Well that's sort of obvious with difficult it was to do any parts on it from past dead subjects.

Sendil rolls his eyes before continuing questioning.

Sendil: Do you hate both the CIS and the Republic?

The trooper reluctantly nods, "Yes."

Sendil: Were you an alien before this?

The trooper stops fidgeting around, as though it was pondering the question. It looked down at its hands as though it never truly though of a life before becoming this monster. It huffs before screeching an ungodly noise. The microphone on the recorder automatically turns down the volume due to its intensity to the point where it sounds like squeak. 

All parties in the room cringe from the noise that continues to echo around the Brig. Sendil breaks connection to attempt to cover his ears.

Quex: Fucking make it stop!

Sendil: I can't dipshit!

Quex: I have an idea! Kerk give me your helmet!

Kerk hands over his helmet while he attempts to hide his ears in his shoulders and his free hand.

Quex begins fidgeting with the helmet until another noise was admitted from it. The noise from the trooper stops as it gets countered by the other frequency.

The trooper stops screeching and stares at Quex. Quex turns off the noise from the helmet and looks at the thing.

Quex: What the fuck is it staring at me for?

"Bulwark" signs with its broken fingers a suggestion to go back into the cell to attempt to talk to it. It seems friendlier.

Quex: Sounds like a good idea.

Sendil: No it doesn't dumbass. Didn't you see what just happened with "Bulwark"?

Quex: Look at it. It seems to not be even be trying to escape even though its not being controlled by your force power. 

Sendil sighs. "Bulwark" presses the button to reopen the cell door as Quex and "Bulwark" walks in.

The trooper continues staring at Quex, unmoving, even if they're so close together. Quex begins slowly moving towards the creature's helmet with one arm to attempt to take it off. The trooper suddenly snaps back its head and grabs Admiral Quex's arm. Bulwark quickly tries to pull back the Admiral to safety. The differing forces make the Admiral scream loudly before the arm is detached directly from the shoulder. Bulwark pulls the Admiral back as Kerk shoots the trooper in the cell once, making it get pushed back a bit, before closing the cell door once again.

Sendil: Oh you dumbass. You shouldn't have gone in there.

Quex has since passed out from shock.

Ceneric: (In comms) We need 349th Medical personnel to the Brig. The Admiral is hurt.

Someone on the comms device answers but it isn't understandable in the recording. 

Ceneric: Shit. We need to do something about the bleeding in the mean time. He's going to die before they even get here.

Bulwark signs with broken fingers, "Use the lightsaber. Cauterization."

Kerk runs over and quickly pushes up the stump where the arm was missing from. Sendil ignites his lightsaber and slowly begins pressing it against the wound, blocking the sources of bloodflow. Medics are then seen coming in and taking Quex. (Quex has since made a full recovery)

Kerk: Holy fuck. Should we continue this? Fucking kill this damn monster.

Acadian: It's your call on terminating the interrogation.

Sendil: No. I want to continue. It was Quex's fault for stepping in the damn cell with the damn thing. Dumbass.

Sendil turns back to the trooper and begins reestablishing a connection with the force. The trooper turns back to Sendil and once again struggles against the will of the force like before.

Sendil: Were you a slave race before becoming an Imperial trooper?

The trooper refuses to nod or shake its head, it begins properly fighting back against the force this time and begins punching the wall.

Sendil: Punch the wall once if yes. Twice if no. Please we need to know to understand you better and free all of you.

The trooper growls as it fidgets around and eventually punches the wall once.

Sendil: Do you want to acquire free will? 

The trooper stops growling like before as if it was going to scream again. Instead the trooper began reaching slowly for the wall to answer. As it moved, the Jedi in the room shuttered.

Sendil: What is this feeling?

Acadian: What's going on?

Sendil: It's the same feeling as the temple... It's him!

Sendil quickly reaches out to reestablish the connection that was lost in the original fright. He suddenly begins wavering due to the loss of strength. Suddenly the trooper begins screeching again. Kerk, Acadian, Ceneric, and Chris Bob fall to the floor from the echoing noise that was slowly getting louder then before. The trooper is then seen pulling at its helmet, trying to kill itself. Sendil is seen fighting against the opposing force user trying to fight for control even with the screaming. 

Acadian: Its going to kill itself damn it. Someone do something!

Kerk slowly gets up as the screaming gets louder and opens the cell door and steps in with the BZ droid. They both attempt to stop it from trying to kill itself but have difficulty finding a place to grab it. Suddenly a loud crack is heard and the trooper's head flies off. Sendil drops to the ground breathing heavy from the force output. Everyone slowly gets off their ass and back on their feet slowly. 

Acadian: Get the body. This interrogation is finished. 

The feed gets cut.

Hello Command. 

We have recently performed our first joint mission with the CIS Tactical Droid on a desert planet. Apparently the Immortal Empire took over a droid factory before making it their own. This would most definitely make them gain numbers faster then we need so we had to act fast. The Tactical Droid had a good idea of attempting to take over a base on the planet secretly before the Imperials figured it out. To get them distracted we attacked an old republic research base that was recently occupied by them. We didn't really care much for it due to the research there being largely unimportant. It was still a good hit and run type of planet though. The plan went excellent. Little casualties on the first planet before we left and we did take some info that the scientists, that lost their lives there, have gotten before they were attacked. It wasn't much but anything is better then nothing. The CIS did well with their quick attack on one of the bases on the ground. We met up with them quickly as more Imperial ships left the planet. The troops had to deal with different walls blocking each section of the entire base. The troopers still were able to make quick work utilizing the help from the droids and the info from the recon team made up of ARF and RC.

The first objective was destroying a power generator that more then likely powered their electronics in the base itself. Once that was taken out they were unable to call for help from any of the fleet that left due to the attack before. Once we got into the base itself after a uphill battle we were able to take the factory. We lost a lot of men and... droids... from how fiercely our enemy fought. Even with the majority of their forces being preoccupied, so many were still on the planet that it was still difficult to deal with. We do have more good news. We have captured an Imperial Councilmember. You should've seen the helmet cams. He was cutting through Juggernaut and 14th armor like it was butter like The Palm did during the attack on the Jedi Temple. We were able to defeat him since he was obviously a lower ranking member in the council. We will be interrogating him soon now that he has been stationed with us at our temporary base. 

Over and out,

Officer Acadian.

Hello Command. 

We have done an interrogation on the councilmember we captured the other day. I would have given you a recording attached to this message like before but unfortunately we were attacked by the Immortal Empire. Their bombardments killed one of my naval on the ground that had the recordings from the interrogation done by Captain Hector of Republic Intelligence. Thankfully, he did remember enough of the important information given by the member, who has since given his name as The Pinkie, like the finger. 

This member has confirmed there are 6 people on the council, including The Palm, meaning it more then likely continues this finger structure. We do not know the whereabouts of the other fingers of this hand however we do have other important news. We now know what took the force powers away from those force users. Its cause of a metal that has not been recognized in the Republic database. The members have these swords, 6 in total for each member of the hand. These swords are made with a mixture of the unknown metal and Beskar to fight jedi and quickly take their force abilities after getting stabbed. Hector mentioned it being more like a funnel where it gets drawn in from one side (the blade) and is dispersed through the other (the hilt). We do not know where it is from specifically however we are hoping for some aid since all we have to go on is a description since The Pinkie didn't know where it was. He described it as a cold, dead place. If y'all can figure out some planet that matches this description in the Outer Rim it would be great help so we can attempt to investigate further. 

rp_jania_exile_v20010.jpg

In the middle of the interrogation, we were attacked by another Hand member. It was a full invasion on the Burst Link base. His demands were the return of The Pinkie and the sword. We of course, denied. He attacked with multiple waves of troopers however we were able to best them each time. Hector killed The Pinkie once and for all just in case so the member would go away, but this attempt failed. He was more set on the sword the member, saying they could always get a new one. The councilmember came down himself on the ninth wave of the attack where we pushed up against the Brig where the captured member was held. He was stronger then The Pinkie, both in force power and skill in combat. The troopers stationed however fought brilliantly and was able to make the member retreat once and for all. He did get to the Brig and grabbed the sword but dropped it on the way out when he was running back to his ship. We will be keeping the sword with the Burst Link until then. Please get back to me about any info of this planet, I will continue investigating the whereabouts of both this Councilmember.

Over and out,

Officer Acadian.

Officer Acadian,

We currently are looking into this planet you mentioned, we will get back to you soon. We do have something new for you and the Burst Link troopers to do however. A republic world who has been on the brink of becoming CIS territory has recently shown they have instead made a deal with The Immortal Empire. We believe this may be a deal for more lifeforms to turn into troopers in the cities. You need to get down there and do something about it. We will be sending coordinates over shortly, it is up to you how the troopers will go about it. 

Godspeed.

Hello Command. 

We have gone to the city at the coordinates you have sent us. It seemed to be a Talz ran hub world. I'm sorta wondering why a snow loving creature was governing such a place but either way, he was dealt with. The troopers were split up into two seperate squads (Assault & Spec Ops) and sent separate ways. Assault squad was to find and gather civilians where ever they were and mark them for pick up. Spec Ops battalions that consisted of RI, ARC, and RC made there way to the capital to deal with the governor. Looking over helmet cams apparently the city was short on money so they donated citizens randomly based on a lottery system and closed all the ports. What a bastard. RI made quick work of killing him once they made it to his office. I decided to go ahead with assassination instead of proper jailing and trial. It has been covered up, to the citizens he died in a shootout instead of being a crying mess. 

In other news, due to the recent "attack" on the CIS home world that turned out to be a mirage from an unknown entity, our forces are still picking up the pieces from being gathered in one place. This has allowed one of the Republic bases in sector REDACTED to be attacked by Immortal forces. I have suspicions they are attempting to make this a primary base for their empire to begin attacking the inner rim. We will attack it as soon as possible so that we can hopefully deter further attempts to gain more power in the galaxy. 

Over and out,

Officer Acadian.

Hello Command.

We have successfully taken back the republic base in sector REDACTED. During our attack we found the original attacker who was attempting to take back The Pinkie finger we had captured at the original Burst Link base. He went by The Ring finger. He was a lot more stronger in comparison to The Pinkie, and slippery too. They were making this base into a factory of sorts for their troopers. We found three surviving clones of the force that was stationed on the planet to defend it while the primary force went to Raxus. A few of the other trooper's bodies were found, but besides that the rest were more then likely reused to create more troopers. That is our guess anyway. A damn B2 droid with the CIS sent droids that fought alongside us nearly killed us. Rushed in and activated every single damn pod they had down there in that basement. May whoever those troopers are, clone or not, rest in peace.

After the battle in the basement of the base, we found a keycard that led to where The Ring finger tiny base of operations was in the fort. He was strong but incredibly scared. He instantly ran out of the base while we were all taking shots at him. A few clones unfortunately lost their lives, but he didn't put up much of a fight like when we found The Pinkie. We followed him into space and together, with the new Tactical Droid's munificent, we completely destroyed anyone on board that ship. We did not retrieve a body unfortunately since he more then likely was killed and completely erased in the blast. We did however, retrieve his sword. It was extremely hot but not a single scratch or dent in it. Either they used a ton of beskar in the making of this damn thing, or this strange unknown metal is extremely strong. We will be sending it back to y'all for further investigation.

Officer Acadian,

We have received both swords from the two fingers. We are currently creating a special weapon utilizing these swords alongside the Jedi. We have yet to have found the planet they originated from however Grand Master Yoda himself is currently aiding in investigations. However, this weapon is incomplete. Due to the lack of the exact force stealing metals used in the swords, we currently will be needing more swords. The leader of the Immortal Empire, The Palm, is currently still at extreme strength due to the force. We believe it will more metal needed to take his power completely then any other Jedi due to how much power he has stolen. We will require the other 4 swords from the rest of the fingers and The Palm himself...

Hello Republic Command.

We will be invoking the contingency plan on who commands the troopers if Officer Acadian is unable to command. With the recent mission to aid in destroying the blockade around the planet REDACTED we were unprepared. We believed our small fleet would do the job. This small fleet consisted of: the Venator being operated by the Admiral of the Burst Link, another Venator being operated by Admiral Clovis, an Acclamator being operated by Officer Acadian, a munificent being operated by me, and another munificent being operated by B1 commander droid 4151651. the Venator being operated by Admiral Clovis and the munificent being operated by B1 commander droid 4151651 was destroyed due to the overwhelming forces. Officer Acadian then used his Acclamator as a diversion for me and the Burst Link spare Venator to escape. Most troopers have said their goodbyes to him as if he was KIA. As of right now I shall mark him MIA in the joint file until we find something confirming his death. We must go back later on to get the world under Republic control again but for now the Immortal Empire has made their way into the Inner Rim. This leaves them the ability to begin spreading like a plague and opens up Coruscant and other Inner Rim worlds to be in reach for capture. It seems like we are also now going again two fingers instead of just one. The Index finger and The Middle finger. We must plan further based on this. I shall follow up with more information later on.

Hello Republic and Confederacy of Independent Systems personel,

I'm an imperial soldier that has recently gotten out of The Palm's trance. I am currently acting like I am still under it but I need to get out as fast as possible before they figure it out and put me back under. I know what you are both looking for, the metal that can take force powers. I will be sending coordinates to the mines we have. I will hopefully meet you all there.

Good luck.

Hello Republic Command.

As soon as we got the message from the informant, we had to act. We don't have much info to go off of and we have to use anything we can get. I immediately dispatched the Burst Link as a suicide squad to the planet. I was going to send down droids with them but unfortunately they were destroyed on the way down. The clones had to got through tons of troopers and go from town to town. It seems like this planet was originally a civilian mining colony. All were probably turned into imperial troopers. They finally got to the final base where the mine was located. The troopers began getting surrounded and took refuge in the mines. 

gm_vyten_orion0008.jpg

There were imperials in the mines as well but the clones made quick work of them. They then found the metal we were after. After speaking with the Jedi High Councilor Nydo, he described the material attempting to absorb his force powers by just being near it. The troopers were apparently trapped by rubble and cut off from each other. The imperials took advantage of this and captured them completely. They were then shipped off to a prison far away without us even knowing.  I do not know much else of what happened so I will allow the informant to explain the rest.

gm_vyten_orion0009.jpg

Hello again. I am the informant however I go by The Index Finger. I recently got out of trance from unknown reasons. I believe it may be due to The Palm getting weaker from having to control so many troopers and the remaining finger(s) through the force. I do not know if The Thumb was released as well but he was always near The Palm's side. My brother, The Middle Finger, did not get released like me. I tried my best to see if there was any way to release him from The Palm's grasp but I couldn't do anything without getting caught. If I was caught it was certain death. That was why I reached out to you all as soon as possible. I apologize that I got the troopers captured but thankfully there wasn't any casualties. They are great fighters. I was able to distract my brother by feigning a call from The Palm which got him away long enough to release the troopers. 

gdebhfrt.png

The troopers then made their way to the armory under guidance of lines put up with our lighting systems at the prison. As soon as they got their guns and armor back, it was an immediate firefight between them and the guards in the prison. My brother attempted to call The Palm after yelling at me about lying about his calls. I... had to kill him. I hope there is an afterlife for him to go to now that his soul is free from being controlled. the 14th CO Mograine got both of the swords. He requested to keep one as a trophy of the battle until it is needed for your weapon later on. It took a while after contacting the CIS but they came and extracted us. 

gm_abandonedbunker0007.jpg

I will be further aiding as much as possible with the war going on. The Palm most definitely knows by now that I am a traitor so I must be weary when helping you all. If my memory serves me right, I may remember where your captured officer is. I believe his name is Acadian. 

Good Luck,

The Index

Hello Republic Command.

We have begun the siege on the ex-republic planet. It was a difficult to take due to the amount of forces there to defend it. With the Immortal Empire wanting to defend any inner rim planets they have acquired no matter what they must throw at us, I was surprised with how not many clones nor droids died. The city was built well for defense against invasions with chokepoints everywhere for enemies to continue stacking at. Once the troopers penetrated the base the troopers were beginning to grow in numbers. It seems like they were attempting to create a miniature factory within the base itself. 

rp_city130000.jpg

To make the new mini army for themselves, they were using civilians from the world as well as other prisoners to fill up more cells. They were all sorted according to species with other species being found in other places of the base. Most of the civilians were able to be extracted however some more may have been lost to the Immortal Empire. However we do have good news. Officer Acadian was found alive,

rp_city130001.jpg

He came back to the base alongside the other civilians and is currently sitting in a bacta tank to heal from his injuries. According to medical personnel, he was more then likely tortured for information considering his injuries was mostly trauma to cause pain but not to kill. The clones and the civilians had to be quickly extracted due to more reinforcements and as we left, it was basically a swarm to regain ground on the planet. 

With Officer Acadian back in our command, the primary leadership position will be given back to him once he is back on his feet.

Hello Command.

It has been quite a while since I made a report. Recovery time from my original capture has been brutal but thankfully we have the best medical personell. I was able to sit down The Index finger alongside RSB, CG, Jedi, and RC. We were able to study the material used to absorb force powers that are imbued into the 6 swords. We had RSB personell "Joshua Graham" take a look at the material. He is apparently the rocks guy in RSB so he was happy to study it. He was able to see that the rock pulls in force powers to stablize itself atomically. He spouted off some other stuff that I don't understand but it sounded special. I would send the recording but unfortunately it was corrupted in an attack from the final finger, The Thumb. They were intent on completely killing both us and The Index finger. Thankfully, we got away in time before we ran out of power. I will update you with any further information.


Over and out,

Officer Acadian.

Hello Command.

It has been quite a while since any Immortal Empire activity but recently the CIS got in contact with me. They have attacked the temple of Darth Nihilus. The troopers have been sent down in the hopes to take care of the situation but they were met by puzzles to even enter the temple.


gm_flatgrass0000.jpg


After the troopers finished the puzzles they were able to enter the temple itself and get to The Palm.gm_flatgrass0001.jpg
Unfortunately, The Palm was able to get the holocron and get away through unknown means. I am assuming it has something to do with the technology in the temple but even that doesn't make much sense.gm_flatgrass0002.jpg

The troopers then got back on ship and was able to fight against the fleet of Immortal Empire ships. We won despite having heavy losses. The Thumb jumped on board but fell under the might of the troopers, the jedi, and The Index Finger. Once at debrief, The Palm hacked our communications and executed the last two fingers. He is apparently taking on both the CIS and the Republic by himself now. I will let you know of any further updates.

Over and out,

Officer Acadian.

Hello command,

I have just got back from the most recent mission regarding the Immortal Empire. The mining planet that was attacked unfortunately had no survivors. Our worse fears have come true. The Palm is capable of absorbing the force from people planetwide and from afar. This makes him an even bigger threat now. I will be sending the recordings from the camera systems on the base, which was taken by RI trooper Uranium.

While down on the planet the troopers had to fight against the imperials while I had to make a tactical retreat. My acclamator was unable to keep up with three of their imperial attack cruisers. The troopers had to go underground after too many waves above ground. The imperials sent troops under ground to kill them all but fortunately failed. The troopers then were able to retake the surface with the tanks below ground that were untouched due to the lack of personell alive to operate them. As they retook it, I came back with a venator captained by Admiral Clover and a munificent with the Tactical droid assigned to the Immortal Empire case. We were able to clean up the skies and forced them into retreating. The AA guns below that were repaired by RC trooper Percival and ARC trooper Fuka was able to take down one of the attack cruisers before it escaped with the others.

I will continue looking into these new powers The Palm seems to have.

Over and out,

Senior Officer Acadian

Hello command,

The most recent operation to save the civilians on the planet Aris has once again ended in failure. All life on the already icy planet was unfortunately killed like the medical outpost. The civilians there were mostly poor and working for the Republic Mining Company to mine out resources that were local on the planet. We once again disbelieve the attack was targetted for its resources and once again just another "test" to tryout The Palm's power. We were unforunately also driven out of the planet itself by the heavy amount of forces. He has more than likely also been testing his power out on CIS civilian home worlds to gain new members into his forces, we will have to get in contact with the Tactical Droid regarding it. As of right now their forces have grown considerably and we must beging upping security on worlds closer to the core rim.

Keep me updated on anything that may happen so the Burst Link can respond BEFORE the civilians/personell on dead. The Empire cannot grow much more or they will outnumber both the CIS and the Republic.

Over and Out,

Senior Officer Acadian

Hello command,

We recently got word that the planet Vakkar was going to be under attack from the Imperials. We had approximately 30 minutes to get in and get the civilians out, as well as ourselves. This planet is a home to approximately 17 billion intelligent life forms aswell as having the senator that represents the planet on ground. Senator Skyyn greeted the troopers, despite hostilities with clones, the jedi and the non-clone naval were capable of peaceful discussions.

Right before we were going to head to the town, the imperials began their attack. This made us quite late to get to the primary town and also placed the senator at risk due to him refusing to stay back. I must commend him for wanting to save his people but this put him at risk. By the time we got there, multiple civilians were executed by the imperials. We had not much laats due to the rest of the planet needing ships. We were able to save approximately 85% of the town. The planet was most definitely about to be shown
The Palm's power so we had to leave some civilians behind to get out asap. Right after the troopers and the final batch of civilians alongside the senator. The Palm came down in a drop pod himself. The troopers couldn't do anything except watch as the LAAT containing the last batch of civilians, civilians still on ground, and the senator were all killed...

With the capture of this planet, the next attack is more then likely going to be on the Core Rim. He has also now directly attacked the Republic Council. We have to get rid of this threat now or Coruscant is in trouble. I will discuss things over with the CIS Tactical Droid as well as y'all at command soon.

Over and out,
Senior Officer Acadian

Senior Officer Acadian,

We have recently begun reviewing any footage of current and past run ins with The Immortal Empire, specifically The Palm. As of recently, his flag ship count has increased from one, which he was always located in, to two. We are currently hypothesizing that he is more then likely distancing himself from his sword due to his new power. This means the sixth sword is vulnerable if we are able to break through enemy lines. With the most recent encounter resulting in the death of a senator, the Republic Senate is looking for a quick an decisive end to this war with the imperials. I will be in contact with both you and the Tactical droid assigned to us to discuss plans on how to end this as fast as possible now that they're in reach of the Core Rim.

Hello command,

The plan to lead out The Palm has begun. The troopers have retaken control of the capital city on the planet Vakkar with heavy resistance. After this loss we have gotten messaged of movements in both nearby taken planets and more ships being moved up closer to surrounding planets. All ships seem to be moving towards Corella. I'm going to follow my gut and begin leading a mass evacuation from the planet before anything happens. As of right now we have a fleet set just outside the sector awaiting for any issues while this happens. The Burst Link will soon be meeting up with the primary defense fleet at Corella as soon as I give them briefing.

Over and out,
Senior Officer Acadian

Hello command,

The first part of our plan has suceeded. The imperials took the bait and The Palm has come right to Corella. The first line of defense was unfortunately, completely destroyed. They did well though on their scouting to alarm us of how big of a fleet they were coming with. It was terrible hearing the deaths of multiple officers, admirals, and other higher up officials in the Republic navy. After they got here, the Burst Link was able to push through the enemy lines and board the ship. According to the troopers, it was a difficult struggle but they were able to grab the sixth sword and the ship manifest. They were then quickly chased out by waves of security manhacks and enemy boarding troopers. As of right now we are in hyperspace on our way to the coordinates of The Palm's primary world. We did see him jump to hyperspace before us so we may have quite the final fight. Will update further later.

Over and out,
Senior Officer Acadian

Hello command,

GET THE SWORDS AND THE WEAPON READY! THE TROOPERS NEED THEM NO MATTER WHAT! USE THE DAMN ESCAPE PODS I DON'T CARE!


TROOPERS DO YOU READ ME? WE ARE SENDING DOWN THE SWORDS NOW. MY ENGINES ARE FAILING AND I DON'T KNOW HOW LONG IT WILL LA- SHIT! FIRE! FIRE! AAAGGHHHHHH----------------

Hello Republic command,

We sent some munificents to the coordinates of the imperial homeworld. It seems that Officer Acadian and the fleet of ships that have gone with them were completely the destroyed. There seems to be a lack of blaster fire. The hypothesis the use of the force which was confirmed by the troopers we saved from the Burst Link. It seems to be that the ships were forceably slammed into each other, killing everyone on board both ships immediately. The engine on Senior Officer Acadian's ship seem to have overheated and exploded due to the increased hold from The Palm on the ship. It was an unfortunate loss. According to the troopers, before Acadian died he was able to fire off the weapon and the swords for them to collect. They did this successfully despite the overwhelming amount of troopers. The weapon also worked. It was able to completely absorb all force power from the Palm. Both his body and Acadian's body were taken. The Jedi were given The Palm's body to figure out what they want to do with it. Acadian's family has requested a private burial on his home world. It is unfortunate he died. I hoped I would be able to test my capabilities against him after this was said and done. At least he didn't die in vain.

With this the alliance between the Republic and the CIS is completed and now void. War will resume soon as normal. I have also deleted all records given to the CIS that may be utilized against the Republic in accordance to the treaty.

This is the final log regarding The Immortal Empire. So long meat bags.
