Finished

[PWG Week 1] - The Aliso Address

There have been many battles, and many wars throughout history. There have been a few that were preceded by truly inspiring speeches from inspiring commanders. These speeches have been able to increase morale, allowing the forces to overcome all odds, and accomplishing truly great feats.

  • Though this may only be a wargame, you are being prepared for something greater. Pick one of your Summit leaders who decided to boost your morale with some inspiring words before you charged into battle. Write a short inspiring speech coming from that unit commander in fiction format.

  • Posts will be a short 250 word minimum, 750 word maximum.

  • The competition will be graded using the Voice Fiction Rubric, focussing on your style, grammar, and overall “inspiration” factor.

  • Clusters of Ice will be awarded in accordance to Voice policy

"Now is the time of Plagueis!", Selika orated from atop her throne. "Now is the time in which we take advantage of the distraction that Pravus' war with the Lotus has created. Now are the days in which we return Plagueis to Ascendancy!" She paused for a moment, watching the faces, both those present and those on holocoms. "Long have been the days or our exile from the halls of Power. Not since Chi-Long himself sat the Iron Throne, has there been a Grand Master risen from our ranks. Even now, though once a Plagueian, he was also a Revanite and an Arconan.

Such foolishness is the very core of what is wrong with our Brotherhood. Disloyalty, disunion, disaster. The loss of identity, of ideals, in the face of defeat. We know now that this Grand Master is sick. Like those before him who have stayed too long, he has developed a loss of self that has led to the belief that his is the infallible right. Unhinged, he has made bad choices, and they have led us to the now.

His lack of commitment to the ideals of adaptation, ascendancy, and availing have caused this fracture within our Brotherhood. He no longer adapts to new information, or Ascends in the face of adversity, or avails him of reality. We will prove ourselves to be the best by taking advantage of this lack to climb back to our rightful place as a Clan. As the ASCENDANT CLAN! Let there be no mistake, we have adapted. We WILL Ascend, and we will Avail ourselves of the spoils.

Be not fearful in this time of triumph, for the victory shall be ours. FOR PLAGUEIS!

“What is wrong with you?!” the Pantoran screamed across the small office at TuQ’uan, “get your head in the game. War is coming! We are going to war. This is going to be unlike anything you have ever seen before in your life. Did I mention are going to war?” Laren’s features softened a bit, but his golden eyes remained intense.

“Look, I know you don't want to hear this but this war involves Force users, on both sides. But worry not, many a great mercenary before us has gone up against a Force user before us and lived; Cad Bane, Boba Fett, Aura Sing. I mean, they aren't alive anymore, but that had nothing to do with their fights against Force Users,” he leaned, both hands on the desk between the two, staring with unblinking eyes into the Kel Dor’s goggles.

“This will be a difficult time for all, we will lose many on all sides of the conflict. People you consider friends and allies? They may be dead by this time tomorrow. Or not, you never know,” sighing Laren took a seat.

“I don't expect much from you, I don’t even expect you to survive this, and surely not unscathed either physically or mentally, but if you do there will be glory. And credits, there will be lots of credits. And so help me if you don't share the credits, I will hunt you down myself. Now go out there, make Plagueis proud! And don't forget to make us some money!”

Arden's speech

We fight for all of Aliso. From the north to the south mole. Iguana see everyone out there at their beast. If you see something needs to be done, you do it regardless of your koala-fications. That’s irr-elephant. Owl not stand for any otter nonsense out there no matter how a-moose-ing it may bee. We will not stop until they are in toad-al panda-monium. They think they can beat us, well Ibex to differ. We took this planet with our bear hands and we will not loose it! If you can’t handle that, please, let minnow. I’ll show you how many fox I give. Those of you that think now is a good time to gopher a drink, remember, the flight will have quite a bit of fur-bulence, so take your stims beforehand so you don't feel eel.

Remember, after every sunset comes a sunrise, followed by breakfast. So donut give up and get yourselves some positivi-tea. We will never let Qui-Gons be Qui-Gones! For those that doubt themselves, just because you're trash doesn't mean you cant do anything. It’s called garbage can, not garbage cannot! You are all living, you all occupy space, and you all have mass. Do you know what that means? It means you matter! These words of encourage-mint mean I be-leaf in you all! Be like protons and stay positive. Finally I say to you all, especially our fleet commanders, go out there and seas the day!
