The Galactic Coalition

[This only covers the IC portion of it, Ren/Homra will cover the OOC portion of it.]

 

Heyo folks, as you've seen in the thread that has been recently posted, the galactic landscape has changed significantly, with the Republic taking the forefront as the villains of this story - though the Republic isn't the only enemy out there, potentially. While this shakes the foundations of the galaxy in multiple ways, it opens up countless new RP opportunities for new and old members alike, and fortunately the old planets are not going away (Ren confirmed this for myself and everyone :P). The Jedi and the Sith, the Imperials and the Republic, the Mandalorians and the True Neutrals - five factions, and one popular group, are all being thrown into a blender to deal with this threat in-character, forming the Galactic Coalition (Or whatever other cheesy name you wish to call it, as the Galactic Coalition is a tad cheesy :P)!

 

While many may say that their character wouldn't work with X or Y faction, that actually works perfectly and in the favor of the unified faction! The key to any story where a common threat causes enemies to band together to fight it is the inner conflict - no one likes it when the story has no inner conflict between a faction. Every faction will be forced to work together, and while the temptation to kill each other will be there, perhaps an understanding and potential shift in beliefs may shake the character to their core and possibly change their primary faction. While the Coalition (for short) is the faction that everyone belongs to, the other factions aren't going away anytime soon - people love their Sithness, their Jediness and their other -nesses way too much, and it'd require reworking everyone's rank which would be a tad tedious. 

 

We've also hearkened back to the good old days where a new member would post somewhere and be grabbed immediately and taken on an assignment - from a space station since Je was adamant on fleet oriented stuff :P. They will be directed to the thread where they will post a little introductory, then a member can grab them and bring them into a thread of any kind, though we'd suggest probing them or simply looking at their character sheet to see what may work for them, or simply do what Verrin does and just try and settle them into the site through RP regardless of whatever it is.

 

The new planet introduced is one that has been used within Legends, and is a bit loose in the descriptions of what involves on the planet giving people much more freedom than before. Nirauan was the planet selected due to it's vagueness and the fact it at least has some information on it to work off of. Everything will be posted and announced here once it has been done, so I won't go over what is there besides that the entire galaxy will be at your finger tips - not just Nirauan.

 

While there will be one main planet to begin with, due to the other faction-based planets being available, over time adding a secondary one may be what is aimed for through events. Something that isn't too extensive, obviously, but also something that allows people to determine the fate of the coalitions destiny.

 


 

The War Council and You

 

Like before, the creators of this faction (Ren/Homra, Je, Chen, Kitty and I) have realized the errors of prior - such as the countless NPCs leading a faction and making it feel stale, since there's no one to role-play such things. Rightfully so, there is a solution to this, and no the current councils that have been made through the factions won't disappear either - a lot of people have worked their asses off for their positions in said faction and taking them away would be wrong.

 

This leads up to the War Council, representatives from each faction and the 'leaders' of said factions. To keep this brief and fair, only one character per a writer can be on the council at a time - this doesn't mean you can't ever join it as people may be rotated out, or the War Council may grow to accommodate site growth. Each of these members will be having free reign in terms of creative major missions and such things that can provide massive benefits to characters that are in them. These individuals have been picked from the current leaders of the factions, in addition to one or two people that generally are just older members that have proven they are workhorses in their own right on this site.

 

Each faction will have two seats each, and though they are not necessary to be filled, at least one member of each faction must be in it;

 

The Sith Order: Darth Evastus, Darth Verrin

The Imperials: Vansic Modun, (Vacant)

The Jedi Order: Grand Master Eidolon, Zyann Aari

The Republic: Jun Lee, (Vacant)

The Mandalorians: Ma'rik Alesha, (Vacant)

 

While the war council is more for flavor than anything, the selected individuals will be dealing with the promotions within their faction, as well as working with others to create threads to involve everyone, regardless of faction, to make small story arcs that consist of 1 or 2 threads. While this is just something to do for fun, no one has to create small story arcs if they don't want to - it's simply there to try and get activity back onto the forum.

 

There will be no pressure on these individuals as the site isn't their job, and should someone wish to step down they can step down. People will be selected based on activity and not rank to join the war council, so even if you are a lowly Jedi Knight you can still be able to potentially lead a miniature story arc.

 


 

Questions and Answers

 

To keep this simple and clean, all questions and answers, as well as other mumbo-jumbo, can be asked below about the IC portion right now - though the OOC portion will come soon™. Everyone can try to answer to the best of their ability, but I will try and answer them as soon as physically possible.

 

Do not be afraid to ask about any questions you may have that pertain to the new faction below in this thread. All questions will be answered, even the ones that have been asked by others.

 

I know one question will be about what will be happening with ranks, and Ren/Homra will be dealing with that firsthand - the only teaser I can give is that some of you will realize that ranking up isn't as tedious, it simply requires writing which is what everyone is here for anyways.

Reading the missive aloud, Verrin began a tirade on a couple of points that weren't particularly important to anyone besides him.

 

" '... hearkened back to the good old days where a new member would post somewhere and be grabbed immediately and taken on an assignment...' The 'good old days, indeed!  What do they know of the 'good old days'?!  Why... back when I started, the Temple Lord demanded that every post be 'graded' and experience 'points' were earned based on the content of every post, nevermind every thread!  Why... back then, we had to claw our way through an Academy, climb the ladder of power inch by inch... execute our brethren and dodge the tempers of our masters!  There was none of this 'posting anywhere' nonsense, and 'being grabbed immediately'! 

 

And what's THIS about? '... in addition to one or two people that generally are just older members that have proven they are workhorses in their own right on this site.'" His tirade that followed covered both being 'old', and a work ethic that wasn't followed by the younglings of today. It left his droid, Maggie, rolling her ocular implants, and sighing in exasperation as her emotional replicators attempted to keep up.  She didn't dare interrupt her master though.

 

He finally stopped, but only so he could address, "To keep this simple and clean, all questions and answers, as well as other mumbo-jumbo, can be asked below about the IC portion right now - though the OOC portion will come soon™. "

 

"What the frack do they mean by OOC? What does OOC mean?!"  An inanimate object was hurled against the wall.

 

He ended by asking rhetorically, "What I want to know is... when do we start?!"

 

:)

Since everything is going to be taking a bit to finish as I've added more to my plate, as well as others, I will say it will be officially be done tomorrow. The threads should be going up tonight after I'm actually free, but most people have free reign currently on the planet.

 

In addition to this, people will be able to add stuff to the planet regardless of rank, that includes wildlife and other fun things like that. We're going pretty much free form, outside of a few small smidgens to at least provide people with some assistance in getting started on the new planet. There will be a push forward of one or two months to accommodate the three that the site is actually behind on, as well as to make it so people aren't role-playing forever trying to 'build everything', though people can still do that if they desire - there's liquid time for a reason.

 

Any questions can still be asked after all the threads come up, in addition to all that other mumbo-jumbo that comes with new stuff.
