The Story So Far…

 

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away….

ERA II: MAN VERSUS MACHINE

Ten years after their decisive victory at the Battle of Geonosis,
THE MORGUKAI EMPIRE have become the singular consolidated power
within the universe. Led by the EMPEROR ALPHA AND OMEGA unit, the
organization of ruthless droid warriors have formed an unassailable
military regime that promotes the interests of automaton over
organic beings. Encouraged by the dissolution of the Galactic
Republic and irritated by their failure to annex the planets gained
during a time of war, the Morgukai train, rebuild, and seek any
excuse to expand their territory.

Having suffered multiple wars spanning decades, citizens of the
galaxy are exhausted. Public outcry ensures that most planets are
locally-governed, giving breath to small governments and other
organizations with the best of intentions. Meanwhile, dark rumors
rapidly spread throughout the universe as the ancient tradition of
slavery rears its ugly head. Combined with organized crime on the
rise throughout the Outer Rim, sinister forces take advantage of
the lack of an organized galactic government.

With the looming threat of the machine Empire on the horizon,
countless organic beings continue to eke out a living, torn between
the fear of being ruled by unfeeling automaton and becoming prey
to the sinister unknown. However, a small number of sentients –
growing by the day – attempt to realize the dream of returning to
a golden age by facing the galaxy with fierce resistance in their
flesh-and-blood beating hearts.

Organization Dossier: Harrin Trade Outfitters
Organization: Harrin Trade Outfitters Leader: Vyktor Headquarters: Wroona Comm Contact: 973 Historical Data Founded nearly seventy-five years and a family generation ago, Harrin Trade Outfitters catered to the resilient traders that plied the small Harrin Trade Route that connects the Rim worlds to the Core territories. Freighter maintenance was how the company made their name until the owners son, Vyktor, chose to diversify into equipment manufacturing. Teaming up with an Ubese hunter, the pair decided to cater almost exclusively to the roughest denizens that the galaxy has to offer. Rebuffing political and religious organizations, the Outfitters have built a reputation for quality and privacy surrounding not only their transactions, but their business as a whole. However, it was only about eleven years ago when Vyktor began marketing his services to anyone who needed anything. Leveraging the war that occurred between the major droid powers, Harrin Trade Outfitters began a salvage initiative to cleanse the galaxy of wartime remnants, eventually earning enough credits to complete a state-of-the-art manufacturing and shipyard facility on Wroona, where they now offer a wide array of services to all.

Organization Dossier: Behemoth Industries
Organization: Behemoth Industries Leader: Rothmar Mekinth Headquarters: Ithor Comm Contact: 1 Historical Data Following the dissolution of Arakyd Industries, many of their employees were left homeless, jobless, and drifting. One such being was Foreman Rothmar Mekinth. Despondent and unsure of what to do with himself following Arakyd, he eventually opened a private enterprise on Ithor with a focus on improving the quality of materials he found to work with. With each successful development, every new employee hired, and new service lines opened, a stable foundation was laid for an engineering corporation so massive that it would not - could not - be ignored. An organization that all races and beings of the galaxy would come to depend on, that services all corners of the galaxy: Behemoth Industries.

Recent Changes

Languages of the Galaxy!
There seems to be an new meta running through the pbase that needs to be addressed. While basic is the most common language in the galaxy, both in canon and EU, not everyone in the galaxy speaks it. In light of that, if I get reports of players saying "WE KNOW YOU CAN SPEAK BASIC, SO SPEAK IT", I will deal with the matter personally. Star Wars is set in a galaxy filled with thousands of planets, and it is ridiculous to expect every race to speak basic. If a character has set a precedent of speaking a non-basic language, you WILL NOT force them to speak basic or punish them for not doing so. If it involves service, you can choose not to serve them. If you arrest someone, there are ways to translate what the character is saying(translation droids, learning the language, protocol droids, etc). Thanks and Happy Mudding!

GNI Auto-News Clean-up and Priorities
* GNI no longer cares to report on planets with no government. * GNI now has different reporting priorities, being more concerned with bombardments and blockades before anything else.
