    Hey all,

    Well, I know this is extremely un-Jedi like, but I thought it would be an absolute blast to write. You know you've all asked the question before, "Who would win in a lightsaber fight between Darth Maul and Darth Vader?" or "I wonder if young Obi-Wan could have taken Mace Windu?" Well, here's your chance to find out! And here's the lineup:

    Round 1

    Darth Maul vs. Plo Koon
    Mace Windu vs. Ki-Adi Mundi
    Qui-Gon Jinn vs. Shedao Shai
    Corran Horn vs. Old Obi-Wan Kenobi
    Luke Skywalker vs. Darth Vader
    Jedi Knight Obi-Wan vs. Anakin Solo
    Jaina Solo vs. Leia Organa-Solo
    Mara Jade Skywalker vs. Jedi Knight Callista
    Jacen Solo vs. Kyp Durron
    Padawan Bruck Chun vs. Anakin Skywalker
    --------------------------------------------
    If anyone else can think of some other matchups, before I finish all the matches in round 1, I'll be more than happy to oblige, otherwise...here we go!
    ---------------------------------------------

    Rules of the Game:

    1) The Force may be used only as a way to anticipate the attacks of your opponent, it may at no time be used as a projectile weapon itself, or to use other objects in a projectile manner.

    2) Single elimination. You lose, you're gone.

    3) Lightsabers must have the power level turned down to training level at all times, and Shedao Shai will be given a breed of de-fanged and depoisoned amphistaff, that has been bred to have blunt points rather than sharpened tips.

    Let the games begin!

    Round 1- Match 1

    Dark Lord of the Sith, Darth Maul vs. Jedi Master and Council Member, Plo Koon.
    ---------------------------------------------

    The roar of the crowd was deafening, as the first two combatants took their place in the center of the huge arena in Central Coruscant.

    Darth Maul, wielder of the Dark Side of the Force and a deadly and unique double-edged lightsaber, and Plo Koon, a Jedi Master of much experience and great physical strength, shed their outer robes in preparation for the contest. Ringside droids whirred and beeped as they rolled onto the thin, sparkling layer of sand that made up the arena floor, to grab the robes. Both combatants turned to the two referees, Darth Sidious and Yoda, bowed, and faced eachother, bringing their unignited weapons to bear. Pure golden light exploded from the end of Plo Koon's single-edged weapon, and equally dazzling scarlet light extended from first one end of Maul's saber, and then the other. At a Force-signal from Yoda and Palpatine, the contest began.

    Maul made the first move, spinning his staff in a dizzying blur, making three rapid strikes at Koon's head, midsection, and legs, all of which the tall Jedi Master blocked with the smooth efficiency that spoke of countless hours of training. Back and forth the contestants flowed, neither showing any signs of fatigue or weariness. The crowd responded with cheers and screams as first Koon was driven back, and then as Maul was forced to give ground under the powerful strokes of the Jedi Master's blade. Analyzing his opponent's attack pattern as he effortlessly blocked each slash, Maul was able to discern that, though his weaknesses were few, the Jedi Master's right leg was left unprotected from attack for a brief window time, every few strikes. This is where he would concentrate his attack. Un-igniting the right side of his blade, the Sith used the few suprised microseconds this gained him, and poured the pressure on, using every ounce of the Dark Side in him to enhance his speed and strength. Koon responded by drawing more deeply on the Force, but the crowd could see he was beginning to falter. His reaction times were precious microseconds slower than at the start of the fight. Lashing out with a foot, Maul caught the suprised Jedi right behind his right knee, causing the support to give way. The Sith Lord batted aside the fallen Jedi's attempt at a final block, reignited the right end of his saber, and stabbed down through Koon's chest, pinning him to the floor. A horn signaled the end of the match, as Maul smiled ferally at Yoda, bowed to Sidious, and stalked silently from the arena floor, leaving the medical droids to tend to Koon.

    Round 1-Match 1 Victor:

    Darth Maul.

    Round 1- Match 2

    Jedi Master Mace Windu vs. Jedi Knight Ki-Adi Mundi, both council members.

    After a few short moments as the crowd was given a chance to use the refreshers on site, and a limping Plo Koon was taken to the Healers tents set up in the arena, the horn sounded the beginning of the next match. This one pitted two council members, Mace Windu and Ki-Adi Mundi, against eachother, in what promised to be an interesting bout.

    Making their bows to Yoda, and smaller nods of the head to Palpatine, the two Jedi faced eachother, shook hands, and ignited their blades, Mace's shining blue and Mundi's glowing purple. After receiving the combined signal to start, the two Jedi squared off.

    Mace clearly had the age advantage in this fight, so it was obvious from the get-go that if Mundi was going to win, it was going to have to be done quickly. Charging forward, the Jedi Knight brought his blade crashing down at the suprised Master, catching him momentarily off guard and nearly forcing Mace's own blade back into his face. Recovering just in the nick of time, Mace gave a slight push back, easing the pressure enough so that he could jump backwards, crouching into a fighting stance. He would not be caught off-guard again. Mundi wasted no time, charging at Windu once more, this time slashing at Mace's midsection with a horizontal blow. As Mace blocked it, Mundi quickly attacked again. And again. And again. They continued this trend for a full minute, becoming almost blurs of light due to the speed of their motions. Then, in a mistake that only a trained warrior would have caught, Mundi extended himself just a fingers width too far, and Mace attacked. Chopping quickly down he cut down across the Knight's wrist, causing him to drop the saber. He followed immediately with three quick slices, one at each shoulder, and one directly across the neck. Had the sabers been at full strength, Mundi would have been armless and headless. Instead, he was merely hunched over on the ground, with nothing but 4 easily treatable burns to show for it. Helping his friend over to the Healer tent, Windu made his way to the center of the arena, amidst deafening cheers, bowed to Yoda, nodded again at Palpatine, and headed off the floor.

    Round 1-Match 3

    Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn vs. Yuuzhan Vong Shedao Shai
    ---------------------------------------------

    Most of the beings in attendance thought it would be impossible to top the spectacular victory of Mace Windu, but they were wrong. As the horn sounded and signaled the next two fighters into the arena, the crowd erupted anew in cheers, recognizing the tall, serene visage of Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn. Jinn was one of the best swordsman in history, and a definite crowd favorite. Upon seeing his challenger, the crowd reacted with a mix of gasps and cheers. The Yuuzhan Vong were deadly warriors, and judging by the fearsome mask and scarlet and gold loincloth he was clad in, this Vong was obviously of high rank. High rank meant great skill with his weapon, and many in the crowd began to doubt.

    Qui-Gon himself was in for a shock, for as his opponent entered the arena he realized that he could not sense him through the Force. Wondering for an instant how this could possibly be so, he immediately shunted the thoughts aside and centered himself within the Force. If he could not anticipate his opponents movements he could at least use the Force to strengthen and quicken him. Stripping himself of his heavy Jedi robe, he faced Palpatine and Yoda, bowed low to his former Master, and didn't even acknowledge the presence of the Emperor. Yoda favored him with a smile, and then with the Force, signaled the horn yet again to begin the fight (Because we all know that Shedao Shai isn't Force-sensitive).

    Warily Qui-Gon circled his opponent, wanting him to make the first move. If he couldn't sense him in the Force, he was going to need to seek out weaknesses in his defense the old fashioned way, and for this he would need to observe, rather than feel. He also knew that this fight would probably drag on for quite awhile.

    Shai whirled his staff in a blur, striking at Qui-Gon's midsection. Qui-Gon moved smoothly to block, when suddenly the amphistaff went limp. Knocked off balance by meeting no resistance, Qui-Gon lurched forward. Pressing his advantage, Shai straightened the living weapon again, stabbing at Qui-Gon's unprotected back. Trained warrior instinct served Qui-Gon when the Force could not, and he whirled, bringing the saber up one handed with just enough power to knock aside the blow. Flowing to his feet, Qui-Gon went on the offensive. More gliding than anything else, the crowd gasped at the smooth efficiency that Qui-Gon wielded the glowing emerald blade with. Step by step he forced Shai to give ground. All at once the head of the amphistaff opened it's mouth and a stream of dark green poison jetted out, Qui-Gon arched his back in cat-like fashion to avoid it. He had a moment of pure shock, for the amphistaff was supposed to have been bred without poison, then turned his saber up to full power. Somehow Shai had managed to sneak a real amphistaff into the arena. This was more than a game now, this was life and death.

    Qui-Gon resumed his smooth and gliding dance, once again forcing Shai to give ground. Desperation was becoming plain in the Vong's movements now, as he desperately sought an opening in Qui-Gon's offense. Ducking low under a slash, rather than blocking, Shai yelled triumphantly. Snapping the end of the amphistaff straight into a deadly spear, he thrust directly at Qui-Gon's unprotected middle. Qui-Gon was ready. Somehow, while not able to tell him what Shai was planning to do, the Force whispered to him, telling him how to disable the deadly living weapon. Sidestepping with impossible quickness, Qui-gon slashed down hard, connecting just below the crown of the staff's head.

    The green saber sheared through the creature with no resistance at all, leaving it headless and limp. Pivoting smoothly the tall Jedi Master slashed his blade in a horizontal arc, depriving the Vong of his head. Qui-Gon deactivated his lightsaber, strode to the middle of the arena amongst a dead silent crowd, bowed to Yoda, and walked resolutely off the floor. For many moments, nothin

    Master Aaron, these are wonderfully written episodes.

    Though I'm not familiar with the Vong I found the fight between Qui-Gon and Shedao Shai exceptionally suspenseful, especially it turning from a friendly spar to a real life battle.

    Of course I was thrilled that Qui-Gon won.
    Hmmm, my hero! *grin*
