Ysalwen steps through the front door, looking lighter and less troubled than she has in weeks. Having your apprentice settled into a Tal-Vashoth mercenary team -- the Valo-Kas, as it happens -- will do that. Particularly given that they are newly formed, though taking in members of several different mercenary bands with a great deal of experience.

Meraad liked them, and James found very little to complain about with any of its members, so.

Ysalwen settles herself at a corner booth, pulling out her tablet-book and pulling up three holographic windows. One contains a complicated nuclear decay simulation, another has some sort of energetics equations on it, and the third is playing Die Hard. She's been told it's a quite interesting play, and so.

Liranan has settled underneath her chair, ready to take a nap while she works. He may come out when the movie's gunfire starts, or he might just roll his eyes and go back to sleep.

Ibani smiles. "Ah, I can see that. Yes please, I'd like to sit, if you don't mind?"

Ibani is not afraid of the faint overhang of dark and ancient she feels from Ysalwen. She lived on Korriban for seven years, and that place is steeped in both Age and the Dark side, a place of active malice. If she couldn't cope with something as mild as what Ysalwen has, she would have been dead before she was 12 years old.

She offers a hand. "Nice to meet you, my name is Ibani."

"Oh, you know Baze? It's good to meet another friend of his!" Ibani is quite glad to meet a friend of a friend. Her handshake is firm, but not crushing.

"And I did give him a new insert yes, cortosis! It's resistant to energy, and at the purity used in the insert, it will disable the mechanism that makes the plasma."

Ibani grins wickedly. "Very nasty surprise for someone expecting their weapon to go right through a wooden staff."

"The energy feedback interrupts a certain type of circuit used to make a lightsaber," Ibani explains. "The crystal doesn't seem to matter, as I know it works on lightsabers with adegan crystals in them. Kyber hasn't been discovered yet in my time period."

Ibani thinks about other plasma generating devices. "I would presume it would work with any plasma generating weapon, but most of those are ranged weapons so there's little chance of the energy feedback hitting the device."

Ibani smiles. "Oh, theory can be helpful even if there's no immediate practical use for it," she replies. "If you know how to replicate an effect, you might find another use for it, or adapt it a bit to fit another problem!"

"If you'd like, I can get you a small piece and some of the circuits in question?"

"What do you mean by magic, exactly, if you don't mind my asking?"

"Not at all. I'll pick some up the next time I get the chance."

Ibani listens intently to the explanation. "How interesting! It sounds rather unlike the Force. I would love a demonstration!"

Ibani's concentration on what Ysalwen is doing is intense, all of her senses stretched to catch what she can. It's different from the Force, very different!

"Very different," she says at last, "and I've never made anything like stone, not unless you count healing someone's flesh."

"Would you like to see something of mine? I can create electricity, lightning, I know that for certain. I've never tried to make fire, but it should be possible."

"Ah, I can do some things like that myself," Ibani replies. "And I share your combat focus, although I'm quite good at stealth also."

"But as for a demonstration..." Ibani grins, then holds her hand palm up. She reaches for the Force, shapes it into a hovering ball of purple lightning on her palm.

"This ball of electricity, or my powers in general?" Ibani asks.

"In theory, the Force is limited only by the will and mind of the person wielding it."

Ibani chuckles. "Theory and reality often don't match up."

Then her expression turns solemn. "I'm sorry that so much has been lost, in your world. Even in my own universe there are always stories of techniques lost, knowledge lost."

"Lightning is a good place to start," she agrees. "If you'd like to see something more...energetic than this we'd best go outside."

"Unfortunately, yes," Ibani replies.

She too pulls a smile back onto her face with some effort. No need to dwell on what she can't change, right?

"I'm not opposed to them, as long as they're not hurting innocents," she replies, grinning.

"Ah, I feel the same way," Ibani replies, nodding. "It's good to meet someone with a similar outlook."

Force knows there seem to be few enough of them at home, at least in the areas she winds up!

"There are, aren't there?" Ibani replies, then chuckles. "It's saved my life for certain, and perhaps my ability to hope as well."

She grins wickedly. "Shall we step outside and see what we can do?"
