Markus Wilding Posted May 4, 2010 Report Share Posted May 4, 2010 "Xarles Cloutier, what is the state of the 501st and the Army?" Xarles had been looking over a design for the 501st's new rifle, the MARCS-80. "The 501st is still undergoing training, sir. Some elements of the Army, like the 3rd and 4th Brigades, are still training as well. The others are out patrolling and setting up bases. Dare I ask why?" Kazimir nodded his head as he listened and eventually said "I needed to know. Follow me, if you will Xarles." Xarles did so and Kazimir led him to a stairwell in the main Parliament building. "Sir, dare I ask why-" Kazimir interrupted him with "Don't ask. Just follow." Kazimir heads downstairs to a bunker, filled with generators, test tubes and scientists, many scientists scurrying about, checking tubes, looking at generator power levels and glancing nervously at a covered-up machine. Kazimir slowly goes to it, and several scientists follow as well. "Sir, W-what is this thing?" Kazimir merely glances back and says "Something we found. Somebody brought the pieces to Parliament, dropped them on my desk and scurried off yesterday. No words, no markings of nationality, no nothing. The man didn't even say anything." Xarles gulped and askes his superior, "But what is it?" Kazimir chuckles to himself and says to nobody in particular, "We will soon find out, won't we? Uncover it. Mills, get a tape recorder and record everything we say." The machine is unveiled, and an old, broken Swedish Sentry gun is uncovered, a Type 1 variant. (OOC: I'm assuming this is okay. If not, tell me. ) "Is that thing on?" Kazimir turns to Xarles and yells "NO! What moron leaves an unknown machine on?!" He then says to the scientists, "Kaysh mirsh solus..." Xarles, not knowing Mando'a yet, only looks on as Kazimir and the scientists laugh. "Funny. Now, what does this thing do?" Kazimir walks over to it, examines the various parts and says "I've no idea, but it appears to be a gun. Possibly an automated turret, if you will." Xarles thinks for a moment. The possibilities an automated turret could do for Coruscanta defenses! "Well, let's fire it up, then! Let's see what it can do!" Kazimir sighs and looks at Xarles like he's a fool. "We need to move it to a firing range to test it, you fool. Move the weapon, go!" Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
