  1. Sight without sight

    Magnus laughed as he removed himself from the grass floor. "Ok, fair enough, but plenty of past Jedi Masters have fallen over and made a fool of themselves. They just didn't give give and kept going and became great at it..., plus they covered up all their mistakes so no one found out about and hold it against them." The copper haired Padawan look down at the blindfold that he still had in is had with a slight smile. "Plus, I just wanted to figure out how to use Force sight like you, I mean you made it sound pretty cool when you last talked about it so I was pretty intrigued and your probably right that I could use some help with it. So if you don't have anything to do right now, do you think you can help this ridiculous person?" "And you know what?" Magnus continued with a happy grin. "We should celebrate since you became a Padawan, plus little old me too, which is both equally awesome."
  2. Ready, aim, FIRE!

    Magnus decided to reply to her joke with a smile of his own. "Yes, I'm an old wrinkly man with grey hair and a big bushy beard, constantly yelling at those darn kids who wont get off my property!" He joked in a fake old mans voice while hutching over and shaking his fists in the air. "And for the life of me I can never trust my sense of direction, I always get lost..., I'm not joking right, I really have a terrible sense of direction. I get lost so easily, first time I got here it took me an hour and a half to find the damn archives. AND I WALKED PAST IT 7 TIMES!!! HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE?!?!" The coppered haired Padawan rubbed the bridge of his nose with his hands, hating his own biological compass, yet again. "Ok so, rants over now. back on to your offer of trading skills, yeah, I don't see why not. you don't seem to be a bad person so ok but I will only be able to teach either Soresu, which is all about defence and dragging out a fight, or Ataru, which is all about speed and acrobatics so its your call to chose which one you want to do. As for myself, I think I'm halfway there, I'm already a Corellian so how hard is it right?" When he finished, he had a sudden thought that made him grow a wide, warm grin. "So, are you ready to train under me my young Padawan?..., Who is also older than me but who keeps track right? Anyway, my name is Magnus, Jedi Padawan without a master as of yet and future Jedi Master, maybe even Grand Master though I have heard its a little on the boring side. But I'm getting a head of myself, so what's your name? Unless..." He continued until his smile grew cheeky and placed his hands at his waist. "you want me to call you big sis instead? I mean your old enough." Before Magnus could joke around any longer, he hear Char come over and asked if he wanted to watch them train or not. "Oh, hey Char, how's it hanging? Been up to anything good lately? And sure you can watch, you can participate if you want, that is if its alright with her." He spoke happily while pointing towards the women he was near.
  3. Sight without sight

    As Magnus was about to land on the stone that he thought he saw in his minds eye, he heard a slight giggle coming from his side, momentarily distracting him from his task by trying to figure out who was there. He was sure he heard it before as well. Is that... He didn’t get to go any further than that with his thoughts before he slipped on the stone that he was aiming for, causing him to fall in a heap on the grass. Again. ”Oww.” He said out loud before reaching for the cloth that was covering his eyes and removing the blindfold. It took a second for his eyes to become adjusted to the sudden bright light of the planets sun before he looked over where the giggle had come from and found its source, one Mirran Kai. He smiled happily at beginning able to see his first friend after a while. He was sure that she could practically hear his smile as he spoke to her. “Hey Mirran, long time no see.” As he said that, he brought up the blindfold that he was using. “Quite literally with this thing right?” He released a good chuckle at his own bad joke. Then in mocked seriousness, he said with a slight laugh. “Just so you know, I’m totally blaming you for making me fall over, you with your lovely giggle, it’s very distracting you know. But in all seriousness, how have you been? I haven’t seen you in a while.”
  4. Ready, aim, FIRE!

    "Stick to your laser sword, kid. A blaster and a Jedi are kinda mutually exclusive." Magnus stopped reading his book when he heard that and looked up to see who had said it. He was rewarded with the sight of a pilot or a smuggler, if her clothes were any indication, looking at him. He replied with mock anger. “Ok, three things. One, I am not a kid ok, I’m 18 so technically not a kid. Two, laser sword is an extremely generalised term to use for something so complex like a lightsaber. And three, I know that a Jedi doesn’t normally have a blaster on them but who said I was ever normal.” Magnus then took a moment to think over what he had just said, a look of concentration on his features. “Wait that makes me weird then..., eh I can live with that. Oh and four, wait I said three things. Eh I can add another point on to my little rant, anyway, I can use this.” He then replaced the book in his hands with his blaster and walked towards his silly faced targets until he was in a closed ranged distance away from them, aimed and pulled the trigger. Compared to his mid ranged that he had tried earlier, he had a rather higher rate of success, hitting all of his targets and filling himself with a lovely sense of satisfaction at finally hitting them and removing their slightly annoying grins. He turned around to the woman behind him with a bit of a cheeky smile. “See, I can use it, it’s just that I only know the basics of it, hence why I was practicing. Got to get better at some point right?” side note: Novice Blaster Pistol
  5. Sight without sight

    Magnus calmed his breathing, trying to take slow, deep breathes to get him to concentrate on the task that he has set for himself. He couldn’t see the surrounding green fields and trees around him, or the other stones blocks that he had placed at random places around him for this exercise, though that would be because he had placed a blindfold over his eyes. Now, most beings would wonder why he would do that, since he had a very high chance of falling over the rocks that he had placed around him, and to those beings, he would say that they were right. He had fallen over so meny times when he started that he had lost track of just how meny times. He was pretty sure that it was in the low tens, maybe 30 something, but he didn’t really focus on that, or the dull ache that resonated from his body from his meny slips and trips. What he was trying to do was to advance his Force Sense ability into the more useful Force Sight ability. He had read that in a book that he had brought with him from the archives, and heard from Mirran, that Force Sight was the ability to see the world around you without the need to use your eyes but with the Force. With this in mind, he had thought of the meny applications that this can be used for such as knowing what’s in your surroundings, seeing if using your eyes became unavailable or knowing where you are going in an unknown area. But one of the main reasons that he was training to try to use this skill, was because he is interested in seeing what everything looked like with this ability active. He had a slight description from Mirran when he had first met her and it had given the inspiration to try and learn it himself. What would a simple tree look like with the ability? Would it have a unique colour to it different from other trees or would it be the same? How would people look? These types of questions swirled within his mind so he was going to make sure that he could answer them. He stood on top of one of the stones around him and started to use Force Sense. Once he had done that, he then started to try and elevate the feelings that he was getting, trying to fill in whatever blanks that were around him, those being the grass covering the floor, the trees that were nearby and most importantly where the rest of the stones were. So after a small amount of time, where he thought that he could see something, he tried to jump to where he thought the nearest stone was. side note : used Force Sense
  6. Ready, aim, FIRE!

    Telona, 3629 BBY Magnus lowered the basic blaster pistol he held In his hand down as he looked at the results of his latest attempts at trying to improve his skill with the ranged weapon and if he was being honest with himself, he was pretty damn good. If you called being good as mostly missing his intended targets with only a small few being somewhat close to them, then he was the master at that. Now, this wasn’t to say that he had no skill what so ever, he did have the basic skill and understanding of how to use the thing so that he wouldn’t end up blasting his foot off, he preferred to keep that part of his body thank you very much, but he was only a good shot with it when he was close ranged. In a close range fight, you don’t really need to aim that much to be able to hit your opponent, there were right in front of you after all, and since the majority of people thought that Jedi’s only use their lightsabers it can be a great surprise tactic to use to get the upper hand in a fight. But it has always been his mindset that if you were going to use something, then you had to make sure that you were using it to it’s fullest poteintail, which means understanding the blaster in his hands, making sure he could aim properly, knowing how to add mods to his weapon and eventually knowing how to overclock it and use it. Right now, he was working on his aim, moving away from his chosen target, nothing more than sheets of paper, which he placed on nearby rocks, that he doodled silly grinning evil faces on them which at the time he thought would help curb his slight annoyance for missing with humour. Unfortunately they just seemed to say to him in his mind, in for some reason a really high and squeaky voice, “Ha! You call that aiming? My grandmother can aim better than you and she’s a tree!!!” ... It was times like this that cause the copper haired initiate to wonder if he has started to loss his mind or not. Although if he knew would that really change anything? He reasoned no, since even if he was a little crazy that he would be that good kind of crazy where everyone would just call him eccentric most of the time, not the bad crazy where he was a megalomaniac bent on domination. With those strange thoughts pushed out of his head, he decided to consult a book that he had managed to find in the archives on blaster pistols, maybe there was a tip in there that could help him. So he placed his weapon on the floor next to the volume, opened the book to his pre-marked page and began to read through it.

    Magnus smiled excitedly, he knew that if he messed up one this on this little mission then he would likely end up in quite a bit of trouble considering how he ended on this mission to begin with. But he just couldn’t help his excitement from leaking out, this was his first proper assignment off world, it may have been something a little boring but who cared? It was timed to show how he would be like on a mission and he would be damned if he didn’t do his best to make it helpful as well as laying to rest a few issues that others may have about him. “Right so, shall we get going? Cause I am ready to rock and roll! And practice a little something on the side of course.” He spoke as he sat down on a available seat close to him, taking his backpack off and retrieving a small rock that he had packed to help with furthering his abilities. side note: sorry about the late reply but I had recently had my uni exams and my laptop had desired to be a d**k and stop working on me so again, sorry but yeah, let’s get this story rolling finally
  8. Little activity is not bad for anyone.

    Magnus gave a roguish smile towards the two. “Well, if we are all good to go, then let us commence with this little royale. So, who wants the first shot?” Magnus immediately settled into his form III stance and waited for one of his opponents to initiate an attack towards him. His plan for the match was to simply relay on his current form as his means to defend himself, he knew that it was good to know how to throw a good attack at an opponent, but he knew that a great defence can help just as much. If he wanted his skills to improve then he would need to work at them. side note: sorry for the late reply. I recently had my uni exams and my laptop had decided to be a d**k and stop working on me ? so again, sorry about my updates
  9. Little activity is not bad for anyone.

    Magnus could do nothing to stop himself from cringing inside from Kale’s woods. While he understood what he was trying to say to Mirran, it was just that the way that he said it was somewhat blunt, so in a attempt to help him Magnus spoke up. ”I believe what Kale was trying to say was that while it is fine to follow what your parents want for you, it is still important to still do want you chose to do because in the end, it must be you who makes the choice. Otherwise someone else will and you’ll end up doing something that you don’t truelly want to do and it would be to late to change it. I mean if I followed my parents I’d... “ Magnus stopped for a moment, memories of a ship erupting into an inferno briefly flashing through his mind before he quickly stopped them. Not now, I don’t need that right now. He thought to himself before he continued talking. “Well, I’d... probably still be here actually. But anyway weren’t you practicing your moves Kale?” He quickly asked, hoping to move the subject along to something that doesn’t somehow link to his deceased parents. ”So, since battling against droids is not the greatest thing, how about we do something a little different to make things interesting?” He said as he moved to the wide area of the training room while igniting his training lightsaber. “How about we have a bit of a battle royale? I mean when we become proper Jedi’s, we will probably end up fighting against multiple opponents so why not have a little practise? But let’s keep this as a strictly blade work fight, unless you guys want to do something else” He finished with a friendly smile.

    Magnus quickly looked around the ship that he had stepped into and gained a slight sense of nostalgia, reminding him vaguely of all the glimpses that he saw of his parents working on similar ships when he was still a kid. He had remembered thinking that what they were doing at the time seemed somewhat pointless from his young perspective and, wondering what was so interesting, he picked up a small hammer and tried to smack it against a part of the ship they were working on. The key word being tried as when he brought his hand down, the hammer he had picked up was missing from his hand while he was pick up by his parents to be told off sternly for almost damaging the ship. Magnus shook his head lightly to stop his memories from going deeper down memory lane as he walked up to Jun Lee and the padawan with her with his question. "So just a couple of questions, well two really. First being what's it like being a padawan Aine? Hopefully I can be a padawan soon but I just have to wait and see don't I. And secondly, Jun Lee, will I be needed for something during our journey because there is something that I have wanted to try and learn on the way there, or at least start learning." The ability that he wanted to start trying was the more powerful version of his Force Phase ability where he would be able to phase other objects and willing beings through solid objects. Of course he would only use small objects to begin with but he will build up to the other stuff in time.

    Magnus remained quiet, simply absorbing the information that the commander before him said. He momentarily thought about the swamp environment of the planet and how it may affect him if he was in any situation. Not the greatest of places to be since I rely on Ataru so I will have to be mind full of my surroundings in case something there could possibly interfere with it. But the rest of his thoughts stopped immediately when she mentioned a Dark-sider was taken in to custody, shocking him slightly. ‘Wait what?’ He asked instantly as he followed after her. ‘Ok so two things to say. First, I feel bad for you Char if those robes are the only thing you brought with you because they do look expensive and will probably get ruined. Second, could we go back over the fact that there was a Dark-sider there because that seems like a really important thing that may deserve more in depth knowledge to know about, like what could he do or did he have a lightsaber or something? Or she if it was a woman.’ For Magnus, and most likely for most people, it was a good idea to get a decent amount of knowledge about them when it came to a Dark-sider since it could spell out something rather dangerous. For example, if this person was mindlessly throwing the Force around with no clear direction, then it was most likely that they were just doing things by instinct which would be easy to handle. Or, more worryingly, they could use it with a practised hand which would mean they were taught and lead to the question, who taught them? In the best case scenario, they were taught by a Jedi and lost their way somehow. But in the worst case scenario, they were taught by someone who wither had a Sith philosophy or were part of the Sith themselves. Magnus knew that the Sith were defeated in the recent war, but that didn’t mean that they were all gone, after all you can stop a fanatic follower but the idea would still remain untouched. An idea that can easily be picked up again and used. With this going through his mind, Magnus started to wonder if he should have brought anything else with him. ‘Ok so with the extremely small chance that there is some other Dark-sider there, which again is almost improbable, should I bring anything else with me? Because all I brought with me was some food, water and a small med-kit in my bag,’ he lifted the small bag on his back by the strap a little. ‘along with my blaster and training lightsaber, I know the blade can’t cut anything but it better than nothing. Oh and some light armour underneath my robes, although I always wear that so its nothing new, I mean if you were on a planet with Krykna all over the place for 10 years, you would want some protection too.’
  12. Set In Stone

    Magnus took the information in from the Jedi knight and looked at the hand, seeing it twitch slightly proving that he had indeed hurt himself, albeit a small amount. Huh. Guess I’ve just never managed to notice before. But in all honesty I’ve never used too much in the past and even when I did it was only because it was a last resort to use it. He thought to himself while he stood up and followed Homra. He took a moment before speaking to the knight again. ‘I know that this will probably sound stupid, but I’m sorry that this will causes you unwanted problems that you had no desire to sit through, so in an effort to make it somewhat easier I will explain more on how and why I use the ability. First off, I’d like to point out that I have only ever used the ability if it was absolutely needed, like a last resort backup if any and all means that I have at my disposal has been rendered useless. Secondly, when I do use the ability I make sure that I keep the balance to remain in control rather than let the anger that is use control me instead. This balance is, to put simply, place an equal amount of light with the darkness, so if and when I do use anger, I make sure that I use and equal amount of happiness or calm to act as a counter to create the needed balance, this being taught to him by my last master Randrow.’

    Magnus was finally making his way to the docking bay after several incidents involving his sense of direction being more then off, but rather completely and utterly lost. Something which still both frustrates and mystifies him on how he manages to do so. At one moment he receives a message informing him that he has been placed on an assignment to do relief work on Telos with Jun Lee, peacekeeper commander from what he heard, the next moment he finds that he had managed to pass the docking bay at least 5 times before finally entering. While he made his way inside, he thought over why he was placed within the assignment and while he would have happily done the somewhat boring but helpful work with a grin, he did have an idea why he was doing it in the first place. Ever since his little trip into the crystal caves with Homra, he had been expecting something that would place him in some sort of situation where he would be observed and then reported on back to the Jedi Council. This was of course a reasonable action to take when he had demonstrated ability considered a dark sided ability but he was willing to do whatever test they thought was needed until they were satisfied. It may have sounded somewhat egotistical to say, but they didn’t have to worry too much when it came to him. While yes he can use Force Shock, he never used it unless it was absolutely needed, using it as a last resort and even then he made sure to keep control of the ability with an iron will and maintaining balance. The balance being something he old master had drilled in to his being, that when the darkness was used, always bring about the same amount of light so that Magnus would stay safe from a darker side of himself from taking control. He had, before coming, thought about what he should bring and wear. He would have of course wear his normal Jedi robes of dark and light brown with the light amour underneath just in case, but he wondered if he had to bring anything else with him such as some food, water, other bits and pieces and his training lightsaber and blaster. Since it was just relief work then he thought that he wouldn't have needed them but he decided to bring them both just in case so he had something to defend himself if the situation ever arrived, leaving the training blade on his belt and the blaster hidden in his belt behind his back. he also brought a small amounts of supplies in his pockets and bag some small amounts of food, water and a basic med-kit with bandages if needed. Now that Magnus was in the docking bay, he looked around for the peacekeeper commander, quickly sighting her along with someone else he know, and walked quickly towards them with his usual warm grin. ‘Hello. You alright Char?’ he quickly asked his friend before turning his attention to the woman in front of him. ‘And hello to you too, Jun Lee right. Sorry if I’m late but my sense of direction if appalling to say the least, anyway my name is Magnus Koaldor and I’m here for the relief work on Telos, its very nice to meet you.’ He finished saying while he extended his hand for a hand shake.
  14. Lightsaber basic's

    Magnus walked passed self after self in the archives, quickly scanning the backs of the books that were available to the young Jedi in training in hopes of finding a book that would help him with understanding the most basic tool that more or less every Jedi had, the lightsaber. True he had already had a lightsaber for the majority of his life when his previous master had given it to him back on the lonely planet and had plenty of time to look it over and take it apart, but in true he was worried that if he did, then it would somehow get damaged from his medalling and won’t work anymore. But he knew that this was an issue that has to be dealt with so here he was, searching the archives, a place that still amazed him with the sear amount of books and data cubes that it had, for anything that would give him a clear idea on how they worked. He had managed to acquire a data cube that held the information that he wished but he liked to make sure through other sources if he could. It didn’t take long until he spotted a book that had the title ‘Lightsaber basic’s’, where he quickly removed it from the self and found a quiet corner of the archives with a chair and table and sat down while he opened both the book and data cube to digest its information. Through both of them he found plenty of useful information that told him how a lightsaber was used, briefly going over dual wielding that peaked Magnus’s curiosity, and how it worked inside of its casing coming with a detailed schematic of them. ‘Ok that’s... not too complicated.’ He said to himself as he brought his training lightsaber out and placed it on the centre of the table. In principle, they were the same, a training lightsaber and actual ones, so the mechanics were similar except for the use of an actual kyber crystal. Magnus took one last look at the diagram of the lightsaber and its individual pieces, before calmly closing his eyes and levitated the saber in the air while he concentrated on imagining the different parts of the blade and began to try to take them apart.
  15. Little activity is not bad for anyone.

    When Mirran first spoke, Magnus turned around in slight surprise. Man, I didn’t hear her come in. Note to self, work on my senses more. He quickly thought to himself. ‘Hey Mirran, how have you been doing?’ Magnus said to his Miraluka friend with a warm smile. He turned to the other boy in the room and reached out to shack his hand firmly. ‘The names Magnus Koaldor fellow Jedi initiate and jokester hehe. Unfortunately I don’t have anything else to go with my name so got to made do for now.’ ‘Now Kale, back on topic, I would have to partially agree with Mirran on Ataru for my preference but I do dabble in Soresu to help with conserving energy but hey, that’s just my opinion, everyone’s different. If everyone was the same then everything would be so boring.’ He continued to say when a question popped into his mind. ‘So what version do you want to use in form V? Shien or Djem So? Although it would seem likely that you would go with the second option, you and your big muscles.’ He said as he jokingly flex his own arms with a slight cheeky smile.
