Here is chapter 3. I'll post the previous chapters in this forum later. I don't have a intro for this one because it pretty much goes straight after the last of number two. In fact the last part of two was going to be the begining of three but I chopped it out due to length.

Jedi Hunter
Chapter 4: A Jedi No More

Even Piell: Wake up son.
Talon wakes, feeling a pounding pain in the back of his head from when he was slammed against the wall. He
recognizes the building but not the man in front of him.

Talon Sunbar: Who are you? What do you want?
Piell: I apologize for the manner in which I brought you here but it was necessary, Talon. You must have many
questions.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3029.jpg
Piell: First, let me introduce myself. My name is Even Piell and I am a Jedi Master here on the High Council. And this
is my good friend Trev Agra.
He gestured to the Jedi standing next to him. The one who so rudely brought Talon here against his will.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3030.jpg
Piell: Now that thatís out of the way, I can begin explaining why I brought you here. I felt much guilt when I couldnít
save you those many years ago and I think you deserve to know why I couldnít rescue you.
Talon: Oh, yeah. Well I donít want know anything so Iíll just be leaving.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3031.jpg
Talon begins to leave but both Trev Agra and Even Piell pull him back.
Trev Agra: Oh, no you donít.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3032.jpg
Talon (yelling): I donít want to hear anything. I already know you betrayed me an thatís all I need to know.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3033.jpg
Piell: Betray you? Talon, how did we betray you?
Talon: Ha, please. You thought that I would never have figured it out? You Jedi are too busy doing better things for
the Chancellor that you canít even help your own kind.
Piell: I find that you have so much anger from the incident that you find no one to blame but the Jedi.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3034.jpg
At these words Talon couldnít hold back his anger. He wanted to strike at Piell in anger.
Talon (yelling): NO ONE TO BLAME? YOU CANíT POSSIBLY SAY IT WASNíT YOUR FAULT! YOU
CANíT EVEN IMAGINE WHAT I WENT THROUGH FOR FIVE YEARS WITH THEM. MY LIFE WAS A
WRECK!
Talon was expecting something harsh from Piell but he remained calm.
Piell: I understand why you are mad Talon.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3035.jpg
Piell: But you must understand, the Jedi are not invincible. We tried to rescue you but a bad turn of events on our
part made it impossible. Believe me we are terribly sorry.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3036.jpg

Piell: Iíd like to tell my side of the story if you give me a chance.
Talon thought about it then decided to let the Jedi go on with his story.
Talon: Sure, go ahead.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3046.jpg
Piell: I was the first to find your masters body and since I was closest to the building where he fell. I decided to go
ahead to the nearest turbo lift and ride to the top.
Talon: So they did kill my master.
Piell: Yes, and at the time I didnít know how many persons I was dealing with so I alerted Yoda. That is when I
learned they hadnít killed Dagís padawan.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3043.jpg
Piell: I was almost at the top when I sensed a disturbance.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3045.jpg
Piell: The turbo lift was stopped. The power through the whole building was shut down. I was stuck until someone
noticed the elevator was jammed. By that time the thugs where long gone.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3061.jpg
Then Trev spoke up.
Trev: I on the other hand was alerted by Yoda to go to the scene. I was on the Jedi Council at this point and could
see through both eyes. He told me a padawan had sent out a distress signal.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3062.jpg
I put full speed into my speeder and
rushed to the building.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3067.jpg
Trev: I was close to my destination. And then I heard a ship coming from behind.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3070.jpg
Trev: It shot at my rear engines. Then my speeder took a dive.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3073.jpg
Trev: I was debating whether I should jump or risk the danger of the ship exploding on impact.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3075.jpg
I jumped when I came close enough to the ground. But the fall knocked me out. It was too late for me to get to you
when I recovered

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3077.jpg
Piell: So you see Talon. The Jedi didnít abandon you. They sent two Jedi Council Members to save you.
Talon was still taking in their story. How could the Burks out smart two Jedi Masters?

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3078.jpg
Talon: No. You still abandoned me. You Jedi still abandoned me.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3079.jpg
Piell: I don...
Talon (yelling again): DO YOU KNOW WHY YOU ABANDONED ME? IF YOU REALLY WANTED TO
RESCUE ME YOU WOULD HAVE SEARCHED FOR ME. YOU WOULD HAVE LOOKED FOR THE BURKS.
YOU HAVE NO EXCUSE!
Talon tries to calm himself down. He takes a deep breathe.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3080.jpg
Piell: Talon first you...
He is cut off again.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3081.jpg
Talon: Just because you lost me on Coruscant doesnít mean you stop. And because of you I endured pain for the next
five years waiting for the Jedi to come every day for the first year until I gave up hope. I was broken down by them.
Being beaten almost every day. Doing their intense labor. Being trash talked. Waiting every day for a chance to
escape. Having...having to hear Burk brag about how good my life could have been as a Jedi. You donít even know
the half of it.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3082.jpg
Piell waits awhile longer before he speaks.
Piell: Talon, you must understand that we believed that the Burks killed you. We didnít think they would keep you
alive.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3083.jpg
Talon: Thatís a lie. You found no body on Coruscant.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3084.jpg
Piell: Talon, even if we didnít we would assume by the time we found you they would have already killed you.
Talon: No, the Jedi knew from the past, they didnít kill their prisoners. They made them their slaves.
Piell: And the slave labor would end up killing them.
Talon: But I was a Jedi. I wouldnít have died as easily. Besides, if you werenít so busy serving the Chancellor you would have
hunted the Burks down any ways because they were a threat. But you didnít. You didnít care.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3085.jpg
Piell: The galaxy is too big too do everything Talon. But I am very curious. How did you escape the Burks?
Talon was fuming. He didnít want to waist his time arguing. He just wanted to give him what he wanted then leave.
Talon: All right Iíll tell you.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3086.jpg
Talon: It was my seventeenth birthday. Like usual, I didnít get a gift. Just the usual kick or punch. They took me out
about a mile away from their base. At the time, it was located on a planet called Natuloae. They wanted me to climb
a hill to where one of their look out satellites was broken and repair it.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3087.jpg
Talon: Two guards came with me. The first was a Whiphid named Juva. Everywhere I went he would watch me. He
got the most joy at watching over me because he hated Jedi.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3089.jpg
Talon: The other was a Rodian named Porir. I didnít see him much but he always told stupid jokes about the slaves
he watched over.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3090.jpg
Juva pushed Talon to the cliff.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3091.jpg
Juva: Get up there.
The tool Juva gave me wasnít very useful. I had difficulty climbing the mountain.
Juva: Keep going Jedi or Porir will give you a slice or two.
Porir: <Jedi will be sliced to pieces.>

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3092.jpg
I had gotten almost to the top. And then some feeling in me told me to fall. I donít know why. Maybe it was because
I didnít want to spend another birthday there. That I had enough.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3093.jpg
So I dropped.
Juva: What are you doing Jedi! Get back up.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3094.jpg
I felt Porir approach.
Porir: <Donít make me stab you.>
Then I thought to myself. Itís not going to be me who gets stabbed. Its going to be you.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3095.jpg
I turned around and jabbed my climbing tool into Porirís throat.
Porir: Ahhhgg!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3096.jpg
Juva (yelling): YOU FOOL!
Juva shot at me. I grabbed Porirís body and used it as a shield.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3097.jpg
I then took Porirís weapon, threw his body at Juva then proceeded to attack him.
Juva: What the?

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3098.jpg
With Juva distracted I dove the knife into his left shoulder.
Juva: Ahhhg!

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3099.jpg
Then drove it into his stomach. The last I would hear of Juva.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3100.jpg
I took his gun for safety. I was then going to the speeder but another feeling went through me. I donít know if it was
for revenge or for trying to save the others trapped in his palace, but something was telling me to finish off Olber
Burk.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v652/outdoors/photonovel4/photonovel3101.jpg
I passed security. Evaded the guards. Then walked slowly to the corridor where Burkís sleeping chambers were. I didnít
have to look to see if there were guards. I knew. Burk never trusted his normal guards to guard him while he was
asleep. He used his top and most trusted thugs to guard him.

Thanks. I'm about 80% finished with the second part of chapter 3. I might finish it this week if I have time. I'll start chapter 4 in a week or two.

Great Chapter, Hett.

I really like those flashback escape scenes. Great fight sequence.
Good use of the cardboard background from the Temple Assault Battlepack. I think I may borrow that idea in the future. What did you do for that flying scene with the Jedi Temple in the background? Where was that picture from?

Thanks. The background is from the Ultimate Visual Guide book. It spans two pages and there is only some text in the corner of one page.

Good job Hett. A few of the pics were a bit blurry, but I could still tell what was going on. I liked the use of the backgrounds a lot, but my favorite pics were of the crashed speeder and the mountain climbing. Very interesting storyline too.

Thanks. I try to keep all those backgrounds from Hasbro's boxes. The sandcrawler's box had a really nice Tatooine playset type area.
