    Arda has returned to the world with her Order she will not give up on the potential that is the Jedi Order. With the crippling of the Sith Empire now is the time for them to strike fast and hard. This fight will be just as tough with the entire galaxy having their eyes turned to the core. The remnants of the Sith and those who are still dedicated to their Empire are still filled with hatred to the Jedi and will seek opportunity to push them back into extinction.

    Battle for Tython II

    The Silent Desert

    Its not a beach, but since deserts have sand, the Silent Desert would have to do for Tagus. Even as the wind blows and the sands shift, not a sound could be heard through the dunes and the spirals of stone that erupt from the desert floor. Here, Tagus would not walk alone and would be met by the Grandmaster, Arda Breaux.​

    Jedi: Grandmaster @Arda Breaux
    Sith: @Darth Tagus


    Please reference here for the rules.

    Ah Tython.

    What an absolute shite pile of a planet.

    Tagus had never cared for the planet but he knew that people within the Galaxy did. Specifically, he knew that the Jedi cared about their spiritual home so he made sure to keep a close watch on it. While the Mandalorians were, if he was honest, infinitely more of a threat than the Jedi and their fellow rebels, there was still just a part of being a Sith that meant that facing down a Jedi was instinctive on a level most people couldn't really think of.

    He had felt the presence in the Force.

    The presence of his Jedi counterpart, of Arda Breaux.

    It had been some time since he had last seen her in person but he remembered it well. Dressed and equipped as he usually was, Tagus walked into the desert to meet her face to face. Along the dunes and the rolling sands, with one of the massive, destroyed, statues of a Jedi off to his right in the distance.

    No audience? That actually made a change now didn't it, in this day and age of public declarations for duels? There was something so much more meaningful, so much more intimate, about a duel between two people of opposing ideologies free from the constraints of what was expected of them.

    With his lightsaber held at ease in his right hand, not ignited just yet, he waited for her to arrive.

    This would be a different meeting from that time ago when she met the Darth on Naboo. She never told anyone of that meeting, it was one that was unusual, probably a story that would be believed as fiction. Never would the galaxy think a Jedi and a Sith came together to honor a lost loved one, a moment of bittersweet peace for someone who may have been viewed as a traitor if the politics of war interfered. She had felt his presence almost immediately when she had arrived, she knew where to find him through all the terrain, the winds, the rain, and finally in the bright, but cold desert.

    There was not a whisper to be heard, only her breath as she walked to approach Tagus, his lightsaber at hand. She wondered how many Jedi before her had fought here where they stood, eras even prior to the last twilight of the Order there would always be guardians, those who sought to protect the balance. She would make sure that legacy lived onward, every choice she would make would ripple into generations ahead of her, Jedi or not.

    The Light of the Force glowed within and with a gentle grasp, she could feel its power, its wisdom and guidance on what she would need to do in order to correct what has been corrupting the galaxy for so long. An extension of its will, the Force would be always with her. Arda readied herself, her lips parted slightly as though to speak, but no words came, no words would be allowed to be spoke in the desert of silence. However, the story that would leave here would be spoken to those across the galaxy, inspire hope in others and the flames of hope will grow.

    Arda ignited her saber, the snap-hiss and its hum muted.

    Arda had arrived.

    Just like he had, she arrived in silence and did not seem inclined to break it. There was much to discuss between the two of them but Tagus felt little need to indulge. They had much to speak about if they had the mind to speak but right now it was clear that neither of them did.

    All that mattered was the conflict between the Light, the Dark and the Jedi and the Sith.

    She ignited her blade first, resolved to lower herself to violence... Tagus ignited his own lightsaber to accept it. He was always ready to commit violence after all. The Dark Side swirled around him as he advanced to meet his Jedi counterpart.

    Keen to begin, Tagus would make the first attack once he was within range, a sweeping upwards slash from his bottom right to mid-torso level up his left side, sweeping his blade up as if to cut Arda in half diagonally. It was the first strike and would never be the last so he prepared for the parry and the inevitable, wonderful, clash of blades.

    He didn't utter a word as he approached, closing the gap to meet her as his blade ignited, the hum of his own weapon swallowed by the unusual desert. The dark side poured like molten stone from the Emperor, obeying his own will as he swung at the woman in a diagonal slash. It was a tease, but it would mark the opening of their dual as Arda brought her own blade to block his swing, catching with her saber as it struck hard against his own. No hum, no crackle, just silence as she used the counter to put distance between herself and the Sith, her blade glowed vibrantly viridian even in the brightness of the desert sun. Arda prepared for his next strike, her saber posed in defense, her own senses reaching within readying herself for what he would do next.

    She could not recall the last time the Jedi in her lifetime fought against the ruler of the Sith. It was too often the Emperors hid behind their sealed doors and on their thrones, fighting vicariously through their servants of the dark side. Her encounter with the now disgraced former Drast Empress had to mark in firsts and though the battles of that day were a loss, she could not be more proud of her Jedi for doing what was right. It would take time, but the Jedi Order would once more be as vast as it was centuries prior. However, she had to make sure there would be a future for them first. She would have to ensure the Order could hold their own, to dispel the darkness and its corruption and then the Light restore its balance.

    "Interesting... Soresu?"

    Arda countered, as expected, but rather than attempting an attack of her own she backed up instead. Rather than countering, she parried and used the window she made for herself to back herself up. It was something Tagus wasn't used to in his fighting partners but considering his fighting partners were usually other Sith, it made sence that she was fighting differently to them.

    Shadowing her, Tagus would follow her by taking a step forwards as she took a step backwards, keeping them within melee range. He brought his lightsaber back up to brush it against her's, their blades sparking slightly as they touched in a brief meeting.

    Flicking the tip of his blade to the left, he flicked her blade to her right (his left) before making a quick, small, slash to his right (her left), aiming to cut into her left shoulder area. It wouldn't be a savage blow either, it would be a small wound.

    Death by a thousand cuts was still death after all.

    He spoke something and the desert took his words never reaching the Jedi woman's ears, but it would be rather insignificant as he followed her steps. She gave a coy grin regardless as he kept onward to the grandmaster, like prey to the bait. He would make sure to stay in melee distance as he tapped is blade against hers pushing her blade to the side in an attempt to strike her left shoulder with a quick slash, but it would go through air as the Jedi's foot work kept to her right and to Tagus' left corner. As Tagus would follow through in his strike, the Force would come in swiftly as Arda sent a punch of Force energy into the stomach of the Emperor.

    The power behind the blow whipped the sand up in its path and regardless the distance it would through back Tagus, the woman followed, always keeping to just his left, the Light glowed bright from within as it tore through the darkside's weighted grasp of her path. Her her speed was unnatural to the normal eye and her blade snapped across her front in a backhanded slash that would threaten to divide the Emperor into two halves. She would be ready to parry either by the blade or the Force as she moved with the flow of the light.

    The winds around them began to pick up in the sudden surge, the natural phenomenon of the desert's silence struggled to have its own peace as the Force users fought. The wind's scream broke through like a siren's call, the shrieking like nails grinding against durasteel. The balance that Tython attempted to keep in the desert was disturbed and its tremor and discomfort would be noticeable to the the Force users.
