    Nessa was close, so close that Alsia could reach out and touch her. And more, still, Nessa had her back to her. Is that what she thought of her, so insignificant to not even warrant a moment of attention? Since joining the rebellion, Alsia had been conflicted, reconciling her family's past with her present. But now it was time that she made a decision about her future. The air around her started to crackle with the force. Alsia dug into every memory, every scrap of emotion that she had, pulling out the hurt, the fear, the power. She let the rifle fall to one hand while the other raised outstretched. She heard the words of her ancestors in the echoes of the force. She was not a jedi, light or dark or of any color, she was a true Sith. She focused that rage into her fingertips and flung it at Nessa Soth's back.

    ooc: UTF to activate Force Lighting - Use Destiny Point for auto hit. 8d6(8,7,6,5,1,7,2,4)=40 dmg (not sure if this counts for x2 dmg, if it does, 80dmg) and -1 down the track + fp to go another 11 down the track.
    +1 dark side point for me

    Tahla and Kadrien felt the dark side of the Force well up from Alsia and strike in electrical tendrils of energy. Nessa did as well. Her glowing coral eyes traced the attack as it occurred. A hand casually lifted away from the elongated hilt of the double-lightsaber, flat palmed. There the discharged collected, the Force lightning curling into a ball as Nessa growled with intensity.

    "You dare use my own secrets against me," she said, as the strike swirled like a hurricane, then lashed back out towards Alsia. The ranger's teeth chattered and joints seized as the energy assailed her, leaving the woman smoking; barely on her feet.

    And yet the exertion drained Nessa as well. She almost stumbled, struggling to keep a battle stance. The battle took its toll...

    OOC: Alsia uses Force Lightning and gains a Dark Side point.

    Nessa Soth expends her final Destiny point to Rebuke.
    As this is a Destiny usage, I am ruling that she automatically makes the DC to cancel the attack. It will be a roll-off to see if the attack is reflected. Nessa needs to beat Alsia's UtF by five to reflect it.
    Alsia UtF = 1D20(12) + 18 = 30. Elder, I noticed that you have WIS instead of CHA to Alsia's UtF checks. That is incorrect. Please edit.
    Nesa UtF = 1D20(17) + 19 - 1 = 35, success. Nessa reflects the power back upon Alsia.
    Alsia takes 40 damage, and is -2 down the track.
    Nessa goes down to -2 down the track for utilizing a Force power due to Sever Force.

    Still Kadrien and Shayle to go.

    Shayle watched the battle intensify as Alsia shot lightning from her fingertips at Nessa only to be turned upon her, somehow she remained standing. He moved toward the fight hoping he could talk her down like he had others in their desperate fight for freedom, she teetered on her feet just as much as the others.

    "Nessa, lay down your arm and call off your troops. It's over. The techs are gone, the tractor beam remains in place. You've lost, you have to realize that. Your brother doesn't want to kill you, he wants to help... we all do. Surrender now and we will make sure no more harm comes to you or your troops."

    Shayle stared at her, his eyes begging her to make the right choice, not just for her life but for Kadrien's as well.

    OOC: Moving 4 squares S, 1square SE, 5 squares E

    Using destiny point for an extra move action

    Standard to use Influence tree (noble)- Demand surrender (Once per encounter can make a persuasion check as a standard action to demand surrender from an opponent who has been reduced to one-half or less of it's hit points. If check equals or exceeds target's will defense, it surrenders to you and your allies, drops any weapons it's holding and takes no hostile actions. If target is higher level than you it gets a +5 bonus to it's will defense. If you or any of your allies attacks it, it no longer submits to your will and can act normally. This is a mind effecting effect.)

    Persusion check 1d20(11)+16= 27, will use a force point 2d6(2,5) will take the 5 for a modified 32

    Kadrien gasped and took a moment to collect himself, praying he would have a chance to do so.

    OOC:
    Second wind, please.+33 HP.

    Default End Round 7 - Begin Round 8

    Shayle moved towards the fray, ordering Nessa to stand down. The words fell upon deaf ears. It would take more than bravado to cow a Sith. More blaster fire smashed into bulkheads and control stations alike, the stormtroopers unable to hit their mark. Recovering her wits, Nessa focused on the closest foe, lashing a low slice at Tahla’s feet. The jedi master easily turned away from the blow, the blades cutting deep ruts into the deck.

    OOC:

    Shayle moves to current on the map.
    Shayle cannot spend a Destiny point for an extra move action. Sorry Spas, check the rules.
    Shayle makes a Persuasion check to Demand Surrender
    DC35 Persuasion check = failure.

    Kadrien takes a Second Wind to gain 33 hp’s.

    Imperial’s Turns:

    S1 takes a full-round action to Double Attack on Shayle and Kadrien:
    1D20(5) + 19 = 24, miss.
    1D20(12) + 19 = 31, miss.

    Nessa Soth takes two Swift actions to move to -1 up the track.
    Nessa Soth takes a Standard action to attack Tahla with Inquisition:
    1D20(10) + 18 = 28, miss.

    Crap round for me. Your go.

    Tahla lifted one booted foot over the glowing gashes in the deck, and felt the heat against the back of her leg. She raised her lightsaber into a high guard before bringing it down hard twice, a pair of glowing hammer blows. The electronic moan of the blade filled her ears.

    OOC: fullround action to double attack. 1d20(14)+16=30. Force Point 2d6(2,1)=2. 32. Possible Damage 2d8(3,6)=9+9=18. Second Attack 1d20(18)+16=34. Possible Damage 2d8(5,2)=7+9=16.

    Reeling from the strength of Nessa's grip even when she had been weakened in the Force, Kadrien knew they needed to act more quickly. He felt the tides turning in their favor as more and more troopers fell but Nessa could still kill any one of them with a lucky lightsaber strike. "Enough!" he said determinedly and he reached out towards Nessa in the Force. He sent her a spike of energy and hoped it would interfere with her electrical impulses enough to either take her down or lower her deadliness long enough for someone else to finish her off. Kadrien pushed from his mind exactly what it meant that she may die here. He would need to mediate on it later, if they survived.

    OOC:
    Kade will spend a destiny point and use Force Stun. DM hasn't said exactly how that will work, so I'll let Ed take it from here.

    Tahla unleashed a flurry of attacks as both lightsabers hummed, then hissed in their impacts. On the second strike, the jedi master's assault dipped underneath Nessa's guard to eat away flesh at the hip. She screamed in rage, but it wasn’t a wound that finally did her in. It was the Force. A lash of energy whipped from Kadrien, one of the most potent usages of skill she’d ever felt from him. It crushed her defenses, unable to stand against such power, especially with her connection to the life-binding energy at an all-time low.

    Nessa’s yellow-glowing eyes rolled to their whites, and she fell in a heap to the floor.

    OOC: Nessa UtF to Block = 34, 21. One success, and one failure.
    Nessa takes 16 damage from Tahla.

    Kadrien expends a Destiny point to use Force Stun. The power is auto-success, and moves Nessa three steps down the track.
    Nessa is unconscious.

    The fight isn't over as there is still a squad at almost full HP's. Still Alsia and Shayle to go….

    Alsia screamed as the electricity coursed through her body, the price of her hubris. She struggled just to keep her hands wrapped around her rifle. She struggled to raise it and her blurry vision cleared just in time to see Nessa fall to the floor. With the dark side still coursing through her, Alsia swept over Nessa's unprotected body to aim at the troopers that remained, the need for revenge forgotten for the more urgent need for survival. Taking a step to get a better angle, she hoped that the rest of the troopers would flee or surrender, she was not in the mood to fight anymore.

    ooc: move 2 east, build up, fire at s1
    attack S1 with Bryar Rifle +14-2 (3d8+6) or (4d8+6 w/ swift action build up)
    1d20(14)+12+fp(5)=31
    4d8(6,2,3,5)+6=22

    With Nessa down Shayle knew the others could handle the troopers, he wanted to get the computer under his control in case the techs did come back. He stowed his blaster and took the nearest seat at the console behind him. He cracked his knuckles and prepared to get to work.

    OOC: Move action to holster blaster, second move to sit in closest seat at computer terminal behind him.
