An Ancient Evil
This will be the Invasion thread for both the space and surface battle of Manaan. As always @mention people you are involved with, play fair, and PM people you have disputes with before reporting them. Good luck!
The Republic's assault on Ossus would not be left unanswered or unpunished. Swiftly, plans were put into operation to strike back at the Republic and the Jedi.
The planet of Manaan, despite the value of Kolto diminishing over the centuries, was still a vitally important planet. It lay in a strategically important area which was the gateway to the deep core. Now the Sith aimed to take it and make the Republic fear them once more.
To this end Darth Shadow was sent with command over a large fleet and ground force. The fleet's task was to engage the Republic forces and destroy them. The ground force's task was to seize Ahto City as a gateway to a drive into the deep seas. The attacked, it was hoped, would come as a surprise to the defenders and allow a powerful landing force to be established before the Republic could send reinforcements.
War had come at last to the galaxy and much blood would soon stain the stormy waters of Manaan.
