First things first! I’m going to assume it’s been about six months, RP time, since the start of the RP.
First we have to get everyone at the same time. That means that Haw’tor, Kellin, Caileta, Taj, Stryss, Jarrin, Vor’en, and Shanara need to time-jump to be at the same time as Shadow, Hunter, Ryndi, San, Nova, Kevty, Dac, Ilsa, Miranda, Fotarah, Takor, Casser, Kira, Sapha, Raff, Ryan, Brian, Tarak, Kyle, Solaria, Teyla, Kari, Marble, Reon, Arnet, Chex, Navy, Kara, and Cuyan (I sure hope I didn’t miss anyone!)
On the Rebel cruiser: Sharr wakes up dramatically and gets visited by Mirati with a message (more on that when we actually get there, I don’t want to spoil too much), Jendi is healed, Reon is almost healed but on crutches, Reon and Teyla’s relationship is growing, Arnet is bored and worried about Shanara and Jarrin. Marble’s doing his medic stuff for the patients and Cuyan and caring for Kari (and hey, she’s 18 now!). (What’s going on with Selene?) Chex and Kara and Navy are still in the cells, but I think they should probably get out soon.
On Mandalore: Jarrin comes up with some argument for Vor’en to leave the ruins of Clan D’jek with him and Shanara. I’m not sure about Kevty, San, Kyle, and everyone else there… I do know that San almost got EXECUTED! Like, WHAT?! That dirty rotten Kira. What is her PROBLEM?! Dac and Ilsa (Dorick and Isa Runner) arrive with two separate yet sort of linked missions: Ilsa to find Kevty and brain-wipe her back to Emily Fletcher, and Dac to find and capture Nova. Not sure if these will work…. We’ll see!
Kellin and co: They’re been jumping around the galaxy, running from the Empire. They find themselves on a deserted Outer Rim planet, where a weird old lady shares with them the location of the Death Star, which is almost complete. Kellin struggles with taking this info to the Rebels, but finally decides to bring it to them and leave right afterward. (Ha, like I’ll let her do THAT.) So they go find the Rebels and the….
On Coruscant: Taj and Stryss get off the planet (maybe with the help of @Dragon’s other characters?) and go to the Rebels. Taj starts training with Vega’s lightsaber.
Allison calls all these competent people she knows to go destroy the Death Star… from the inside. This may involve some of our OCs (Kellin and others whose faces the Empire doesn’t know) becoming Imperials and others becoming prisoners.
So we get all of our OCs together (save for the “bad guys”) and sneak them onto the Death Star over a period of a month or two, until they’re all on the Death Star, either as Imperials or as prisoners. Then one day/night the fake Imperials break out the prisoners and they all go and get all the explosives and rig them to blow remotely from the bridge, which they’ve taken over. But Darth Vader finds out… and Anakin is sick and tired of the Empire and helps them. (Yeah, I know, but I have to have a redeemed Anakin.)
But oops! The Emperor’s on the Death Star now, checking on progress! Marble and Arnet tell everyone to get out while Marble finishes rigging the explosives (and there are a LOT of explosives, but he can do it from a console with the wiring). Stormtroopers find them and Arnet fights them off, but in the progress the remote activation console is destroyed and Marble has to do it manually. So then he calls Kari, and asks if she’s out of range (he and Arnet were going to get out in escape pods) and he tells her what’s happened… and yeah. He then blows up the Death Star, but he and Arnet and Anakin are still on it.
And then (maybe?) the RP’s over, but some other OCs may die too, in the mission to destroy the Death Star.
This is the end scene @Stormflight wants:
Anakin ignited his lightsaber and, moving as fast as the suit which kept him alive would allow, sliced off the Emperor’s head and flung his body into the reactor. (Maybe not quite that easy, but something like that.)
An explosion rumbled up from the bowls of the Death Star and Anakin felt the station beginning to break apart. He turned to look out the window at the stars.
Then the Death Star blew.
And if we have a sequel RP? Fotarah, Dac, Ilsa, Shadow, Hunter, and Ryndi are still out there! And we have so many ships….
I would LOVE to hear any of your ideas, and of course, we defer to @Skysun in all things because this IS her RP, after all!
