CAPITALRULES CAPITAL_RULES 'CAPITAL RULES'

[:: Legends of the Jedi ::]

Summary
Capital rules govern inter-clan space battles and capturing planets.

An UNMANNED capital ship in orbit of a planet in a friendly sector can only be
attacked (including it being targeted, fake signaled, grenaded, tractored or
sabotaged) by WARRING clans when popular support is below 0. Any unmanned ship
that is destroyed before support is below 0 in a wartime situation will result
in the restoration of the ship and a second ship gifted to the clan. An
unmanned ship out of orbit of a planet can be attacked. MANNED vessels are free
game.

Safe vs. Friendly Sectors
Safe sector: Major clans' capital sectors are designated as 'safe sectors'.
These cannot be captured without immortal approval.
Friendly sector: Any sector controlled by the clan in question. These include
safe sectors.

The major difference between safe and friendly sectors is that if a safe
sector's planetary popular support goes into the negative range, you may not
destroy any vessels in orbit. However, if they are out of orbit, or if they are
a part of a battlegroup in which the flagship is manned, or if the staff
removes the safe sector flag - they are fair game.

Specific Distinctions
- If a Flagship is MANNED, any battlegrouped ships in the same system are
considered manned.
- Logging out, going link-dead, or escaping the capital ship in anyway after
your ship(s) have been targeted will not negate your ship's manned status.
- Usage of any bug to cause a capital ship to target your ship and thereby
attack and destroy a ship defined as safe (Unmanned in orbit of a planet in a
safe sector) will result in the restoration of the destroyed ship, a gift of
another of the same type and the destruction of the offending ship.
- Neutral Government orbital ships are covered by these rules. Do not perform
an aggressive action (described above) against them unless support is below 0.

Refueling in Space
If a clan's capital vessel is stationed in a friendly sector, it will be
refueled automatically if it is not in combat.

Disclaimer
We know that from time to time, loopholes can be found and exploited. The staff
reserves the right to judge any capitalrule situation and take appropriate
measures to rectify exploits.

Sorosuub Purchases Tibanna Gas Platforms, Re-Enters Weapons Market
A holo-image is displayed showing a tibanna gas platform floating in the atmosphere of Bespin. The platform displays the familiar STS logo in places. "In recent days, Sorosuub purchased a pair of tibanna gas platforms. Shortly after the purchase was made, the company's CEO released the following statement to the press." The image then shifts to display a holographic image of a twi'lek woman. "It is always sad to see an engineering firm like Mon Calamari Shipyards close its doors. We can all only speculate what technologies might have been brought to the galaxy had they continued operations, while others will be lost to the ages." She pauses for a moment before continuing. "We had originally stepped out of the weapons market to focus on more unique technologies and give MCS free reign of the market, but with their closure leaving several markets untapped Sorosuub will be looking to potentially fill the gaps. In the coming days we will be releasing our first new line of weaponry in many years, so look forward to new products on our vendors soon."

Emperor Offers Ceasefire, Rebel Alliance Pushes Ahead
The stark-white gear of the Galactic Empire cuts onto the screen and fades out. Your view moves to the obsidian throne room, but, instead of his usual position, the Emperor stands tall at the steps before his seat, black robes spilling out luxuriously in all directions. He pulls back his hood, revealing grey eyes bespeckled with red fleks and snow-white hair, kept long, "Good evening, citizens of my fine Galaxy. Tonight, during a brief holomeeting with disgraced senator Danneke, I offered her and her ilk room to breath: a proposal for a ceasefire. Let history remember that it is I who spoke diplomacy on this day. It was not fluff, but substantive. I demanded reparations for the lives they've taken, including for the late Grand Moff Kaiden, Dragon of the Empire. I was not planning to let them off so easy, but I -was- willing to entertain a deal. Instead of a counter-offer, the commander refused to even discuss it, intimating that I was wasting her time, and playing lame theatric ignorance regarding Kaiden's death." The man smiles, but tightly, with a furrowed disposition, before continuing, "Instead of gaining a neutral standing with me, one she and her riff-raff could have utilized in a variety of ways...tonight she decided to continue war. Let no one ever forget it." The Emperor gestures forward with gloved hands, "She now leads beings to a gruesome death, and she will follow them in time. When that day comes, perhaps then she will realize the folly in her mistake tonight. Either way, my Empire marches on."
