Years ago the force was strong, some older Jedi slime may still be awere of the fabled "confluences" of the light and dark side. Those who knew where to find these "confluences" could sometimes witness the truth, that many still hold a legend. The truth that when certain parts of this solar system are in alignment, that the light and dark will work together in harmony. At the first confluence Dark shall enable light, in these past times the dark masters would move closer to the entrance of their caves, some even ventured out at night their quest? To provide product to those who need it most, in time for it to be of use. To the lightsiders, they would indicate, broadly: there be dragons. The masters of light, they would seek, finding here a GMRD, there a Front Gun Regiment. Over there an M60 missing from the National Guard and beyond perhaps, a pistol in Sainsburys maybe a PIFWC ? At the second confluence Light shall enable dark. The Legend of the Stables hold that light shall protect dark. Before the Legend was wrote SSGT Cottonless spoke " Good man management is the best form of personnel security you can have" and the young Jedi listened and then the young Jedi forgot. The Assyrians came down and smite the dark masters and took away their indications - on multi-ply carbonless paper and so it came to pass that the legend of the Stables was born. The Lords of the Stables directed that the best protection should be provided for the Dark Masters and their apprentices, they should have excellent pastoral care, there should be allowances for differing conditions of service and more subalterns for the young apprentices to tease in their free time. To avoid the influences of Jupiter and Cancer each dark master and apprentice should meet alone each year with a light Jedi, to ensure the force remained pure. These light Jedi reported to a wise old Scally jedi at the centre of the constellation. This potent old white haired Master was able to harness the forces of both light and dark, then the young Jedi forgot. The Lords of the Stables decreed that more light should be deployed to protect those in Darkness. In the Eastern Marshes the two Crown- sleeved Jedi from the light side were dispatched to ensure the Legend of the Stables was upheld. Mysteriously they never arrived: an apperition of two light-blue Jedi appeared instead, but they did not have the secret of the Legend. They did not have the power of the force with them. Is the Legend of the Stables lost forever? Will there ever be confluence again? Will we ever see the like of the white haired master again at the centre of the constellation? Will there always be such a high wastage rate in FLB?
