Right, now I recall. It's the Dark Eldar's Dreadnaught.

Now, was the R2 looking thing the only type of droid they used in the book, besides the droid ships I mean?

Ah I see. Did the Ssi-ruuk use any heavy artillery, you know, bring out the big guns?

I'm trying to decide if I should use any mobile battle platforms, like Wraithlords Twisted Evil

None that I remember they basically seemed content to destroy a ships shields and thrusters and then harvest the crew. Of course once they defeated the planets 'air' defences they were going to land in force with masses of battle droids and P'w'ke troops and nerve gas 'bombs' to incapacitate the populace for ease of harvesting...

Did I mention their very superior medical/stunninng/incapacitating technology yet... I'm sure I must have Cool

At least that was the plan until they realised with a powerful force user they could entech beings from orbit Twisted Evil

truce at bakura was a pretty good book and they refer to its events for a long time in the novels after it its worth reading its only a few hundred pages long, and a pretty easy read.

Thank you Esoomian.

I've seen that site before. Is that not Dark Lords of the Sith?

Don't know...

didn't spend too much time there

You know what would be cool. If the Ssi-ruuk had managed to create an entire ship of capital size powered and controlled by a terrifying network of enteched souls. One that could 'feed' itself and was still loyal to the Ssi-ruuk due to it's core programing.

Oh right you mean the one where the Ssi-ruuk have hollowed out a moon and then turned it into a giant soul powered deathstar with a dark jedi of immense power at it's core who is hooked up to the super laser so that the death star can entech an entire system and everything in it with a single shot...


Ok I'll keep it under my hat Laughing

Thank you everyone, I think I have what I need now that Ragnar's adventure into the Expanse is over. I will use the Ssi-Ruuk in the future and I may like to discuss some ideas with you again.
