Lost Harbor
Atlantis RP / atlantis-mission
The Second Battle of Refuge against the Xovul rages on; Atlantis has suffered moderate damage with our shields having fallen below 40%, the USS Mars and the USS Mariner have been lost, and of the twenty-two attacking dreadnoughts, fourteen still remain. However, five more dreadnoughts, led by the Vash whose ship we rescued from being crushed in the depths of a gas giant, have arrived to join the battle on our side, swinging the odds more heavily in our favor.

Xovul Vash 29-Sep-2021 22:58:05
+CO+ The short version is that the Ykaxov is supposed to be the final authority on interpreting the Xov, but the Ykavosh has overextended himself.
+CO+ When he found out that we accepted your aid, he claimed that the Xov forbade us from accepting help from outsiders.

+Vash+ I am so sorry, Vash. I had no idea that would happen to you.
Xovul Vash 29-Sep-2021 23:01:23
+CO+ The fault lies with the Ykavosh. When my crew freed me from the camp, we consulted the Ykaxov, who disagreed with his interpretation of the Xov, on many counts.
+CO+ There is now a struggle in our military between those loyal to the Ykavosh, and those loyal to the interpretation of the Ykaxov, who holds the authority to hold anyone in defiance of the Xov, including the Ykavosh.
CO Capt Harper 29-Sep-2021 23:03:37

Xovul Vash 29-Sep-2021 23:04:53
