"Every three months?" Gil asked with surprise. "I wonder how quickly they will grow too old to fight, if they mature that quickly. I don't envy LoQuiin his job..." he paused, "We're expecting high Moocher casualties then, too. Shame."

They all took their seats and strapped in as the ship rumbled into the atmosphere. One of the other mercs looked as if he were going to be sick. It was rare to see such behavior in the modern galaxy of travel, and even more so in an experienced combat unit, but not unheard of. I guess that's why he's a ground-pounder... Gil thought to himself. Space travel didn't bother him in the slightest, and never had. He had traveled a lot within the core worlds as a child, tagging along with his parents as they performed on all the prominent stages and filmed holovids in luxurious locations. Gil had often expressed his desire to do more travelling outside the safety of their cushy lifestyle, which of course brought instant disbelief and disapproving remarks. Gil loved his parents, and appreciated their love for him, even if they did not understand him. How horrified they would be to know where he was now, and what he was doing.

Gil felt some excitement and anticipation building in his gut. A new world, new races, new team, new mission. A wholly unique experience awaited, and though it did little to change his stable outward demeanor, he took a moment to breath and center himself for the coming hardships and challenges.

"Not much to go on, then, other than we've got a lot of work to do." Gil studied the hologram thoughtfully. This was shaping into more of an underdog operation than he initially anticipated. The presence of such a heavy Imperial contingent foreshadowed very difficult operations in the coming days. They weren't going to give this planet up lightly. Gil glanced around the hold at the other mercs; they'd be doing most of the heavy lifting, it seemed. 'Advise and assist the local resistance forces,' the original message from the SIS had said. Clearly, there would be emphasis on the latter.

"I'm curious to get on the ground and see the kind of shape our new allies are in. They've got a hell of a fight coming to them. I've no doubt this group," he motioned to the assembled professionals, "will bring the pain. But will the locals?"

A big game hunter? Fascinating. Rare breed indeed. Gil thought to himself. He shook the newcomer's hand. "Likewise, Thraskan. Guess I don't need to introduce myself then."

Gil checked his datapad briefly, and asked, "Thraskan, do you have any more intel on the size of opposition we'll be facing? The report we were given is a little light on details."

"A pleasure, Byrren. Explosives are my trade, primarily." Gil said. He noticed his new acquaintance raise an eyebrow every so slightly. Gil wiggled his metal fingers with a smirk. "Don't let the arm fool you. Not my work."

Gil motioned to the Bowcaster in Byrren's lap. "My compliments on your bowcaster. That's an exquisite weapon. They don't hand those out to just anyone, either; I've only seen a handful in my time. Makes me very curious as to what you bring to the table."

Gil scanned the audience crammed into the small transport. Quite the efficient group of killers had been assembled for this operation. He had briefly chatted with a few of them already, learning their basic histories and skill sets. The SIS had done well bringing together a diverse bunch, that was for sure. The Styanax was the perfect mascot.

Gil was curious about this Chiss. Very few of that species were not aligned with the Empire, and Wishbone's Imperial accent indicated he had 'crossed over' to the Republic. Fascinating. When Wishbone suggested that they get to know one another, Gil turned to his left and extended his cybernetic hand to the man next to him.

"Gillick Yorvan. Call me Gil." He said pleasantly. The man was a little older, and carried what looked like a custom Wookie Bowcaster. Not many mercenaries packed such a unique weapon.

Name: Gillik Yorvan

Age: 32

Race: Human

Appearance: Gil is 6' tall, with an athletic body type that isn't overtly large, but well muscled and toned. He has blonde hair which he keeps short. His right hand is cybernetic almost up the elbow, and he is missing the tip of his right ear. He is very calm, collected, and usually friendly, and never seems to be fazed by anything.

Specializations: Demolitions, Infiltration, Hand-to-Hand combat, small-unit tactics

Equipment: In combat, Gil wears light armor that is tailored to moving quietly and unseen, though it provides less protection than full armor would. He carries his commando's blaster rifle, and a family pistol from his grandfather. His cybernetic hand contains a black vibroblade, a short range dart gun, and a datapad. He has mastered the use of many types of explosives, and carries whatever the mission requires.

History: Gillick 'Gil' Yorvan was raised in the core worlds by parents who were both prominent actors. His grandfather, however, was a war hero who instilled Gil with the ideals of strength, service, and the importance of the warrior in the universe. Gil turned away from the life of luxury and enlisted in the Republic military when he came of age, much to the horror of his friends and parents. He was recruited into a special forces unit where he mastered the arts of demolition and infiltration, succeeding in numerous operations during the war against the Sith. He lost his hand and much of his ear in an explosion, a training accident during a live-fire exercise where a new recruit had not properly prepared the charges. He prefers to handle them himself now. Gil left the army at the end of the war to fight on his own terms, taking up mercenary work and almost immediately finding employment through an old contact of his in the SIS.

Although he his calm and genuinely friendly, Gil loves his job, he loves combat and wouldn't trade it for anything. His teammates observed that in combat or on a mission he was still always calm, but also became ice-cold and efficient. He has often thought that his upbringing around actors gave him unintended training for this; he finds it easy to 'flip the switch' between his deadly mindset on the field, and his relaxed personality back at base.

Not a Marine, and not in 29 palms, but I live a few hours away from there.

Sounds exciting! But yes, you'll definitely be baking. It's been in the 90's here where I live, and the Palm desert is always a good amount hotter. Good luck and have fun! Let us know how it goes.

Put in the immigration packet for my fiancee, got a great scholarship on top of the GI bill, and so on and so forth. Things have been good.

WOAH, you're engaged?! How did I miss that? Congratulations!

I still pop in to check every once in a while and reminisce, but University's been keeping me pretty busy lately. Always miss the RPs and the old community we had, this was a great group back in the day and I miss it like hell.

Good to hear from you Nold, it's been too long vod. And I agree.

I usually check in every day or so. Last week or two I haven't because of finals, but those are over.

Yes, Ruusaan is usually a female name. Not always, but usually. Mando'a doesn't always care about gender, lots of the terms are applicable to both sexes.

Another option that doesn't have the female connection would be "Ruusaar". Generally the same meaning: Foundation. And obviously born out of the same root concepts as Ruusaan is. :)

I camped out online to get tickets for Thursday night premiere the moment they came out! Good thing, too, since they were gone in a flash.

The new trailer was pretty great. I'm still trying to contain my hype, with little success.

I'm conflicted.

Why is that?

I'll definitely be getting the new Battlefront and Halo when they arrive! I have Destiny on the 360 unfortunately, I doubt I'll pick it up for the XBOne.

What else are you all playing Multiplayer these days? I've mostly been doing SP games, like Witcher Wild Hunt.

Gamertag still N11CptOrdo :)

Im trying (and basically failing) to keep my expectations at a reasonable level. The Hype is so strong with this one.

I liked the trailer a lot, it has me super pumped for the movie. A few things to discuss:

John Boyega's character, the stormtrooper, needs to be shown in a few shots where he isnt panting desperately with a face of utter confusion/terror. So far thats all we've seen of him, and its becoming kind of comical at this point. It will be hard for me to take him seriously if that's all we get to see.

Whoever the new sith enemy is, he looks AWESOME. So far, he has the perfect feel of how a sith should be (IMO, of course)

I hope future trailers don't give away much of the plot. I want to be as clueless as possible when I enter the theater.
I wasn't sure how excited I would be to see the old actors on screen again, but when Luke started talking...I don't know, it just had a weight to it. It hit me very close to home, and had a bigger effect than I expected.

Lastly, when Han and Chewie popped up on screen, I lost all control.

No, it isn't :) Ep VII is at the end of this year, Rogue One is scheduled for December 2016.

Well, a lot of local nations, such as Turkey, are whupping up on them, and South African mercs have been shoving Boko Haram around a lot lately...

Very true. They're not being ignored.

Pledging allegiance to ISIS is just a desperate ploy to get attention and recruits. 

Yeah I know its just a last ditch ploy, I was talking in reference to the blending-together of events.

Hey H-BOMB! Good to hear from you again, man. Sounds like you're having a great time at college!

I'm in my first year at UC Irvine, studying Business Administration. Having a great time as well, playing a lot of club sports and meeting a lot of awesome friends. Not as much free time of course, but that's alright.

Yeah, the site was having some issues with people logging in, and posting as well, for some time. I haven't been able to post until recently, when the problem disappeared. Glad to see its working again for another member!

Yeah, they're some unpleasant customers to be sure. They're spreading like a virus and their tactics and behavior seem to be getting increasingly brutal as time goes by.

I'd feel more about ISIS if I didn't read about what's going on in Africa every day. It all blends into a big mess after a week or so.

Even more so now that Boko Haram has pledged allegiance to ISIS.
