Competition: A New Frontier(Week 1)

Finished
A New Frontier(Week 1)

Aliso isn’t just home to the Ascendant Clan and won’t be going forward. Various groups have come to call the planet home. Of particular note are the Valneikian Hive, whose presence on the planet predates that of the Plagueis, the Saraask’ar, the Trandoshan slaver’s guild aligned to Plagueis, Hyperdyne Industries and the criminal underworld under the leadership of Rosa Equinario also have a presence on Aliso.

For this event, your assignment is to create a description of a location on Aliso belonging to one of these groups, be it a single landmark/structure or a large location such as another settlement or a geographical area. Entries should be at least 200 words, but need not be excessively detailed or set up as a wiki article. The idea is more to create a concept that can be expanded to create an entire location. This is a chance to add something permanent to the Plagueis canon, and even those entries that don't place still might make it onto the DJB wiki as official canon for the clan. Also, keep in mind that the more interesting the idea, the better. If you want to finish well, try to think outside the box! Submissions may come in the form of PDFs, .doc .docx formats or entries may be typed up in the submission box.

Entries will be graded on syntax, originality, and the quality of the writing used to create the location.

For this competition, member's entries should mention the faction the location is controlled by, which will count towards the total number of votes to be tallied across all competitions in the event.

== Djeri's Mansion] ==

Located on the smallest of the Pearl Islands, Djeri's Mansion is a sight to behold on the archipelago. Constructed almost entirely out of transparisteel, it was built by Djeri Moraal following the burgeoning success of Djeri's Retreat and is also colloquially called the Crystal Palace. It is a whopping six stories tall and 12,000 square feet, surrounded by tall exotic trees imported to Aliso from neighboring planets in the Outer Rim.

Within the colossal mansion, one can find a Pazaak parlor, a full bar, a meditation chamber, and a gorgeous view of the Aliso oceans from the master suite. On the rooftop, one can find an entire garden tended to by the bustling staff, lush with foreign plants and herbs that are periodically harvested and sold. The insides of the windows are tinted to avoid glare, and it is rumored that Moraal has the fragrance of licorice pumped throughout the building, given that it is allegedly his favorite smell.

Hidden around the perimeter of the Crystal Palace is an array of anti-aircraft artillery, always primed and ready to shoot down anyone who would dare attack the luxurious property. It is no secret that such weaponry was bought from the Ascendent Legion, given Moraal's steadfast allegiance to Clan Plagueis.

Ashkrik Retreat is a large mansion expanse on one of the few bigger islands of Aliso belonging to the Saraask’ar, gifted from the current Dreadlord, Ronovi. The mansion sees use from the leader of the Saraask’ar as well as its captains and their guests. The island is moderately forested with small lakes and creeks which provides a perfect hunting ground for the Trandsoshans to hold ritual hunts in the name of the Scorekeeper.

The mansion itself isn't a structure that anyone would call opulent or lavish, instead it takes on a more rustic tone that allows the Trandoshans of Saraask’ar to feel more in touch with the nature around them.

As far as the layout is concerned, the retreat is two stories and boasts a dozen bedrooms, each with their own restroom. A large kitchen can be found on the first floor that would probably resemble something closer to a surgical ward with all of the easy to clean stainless durasteel in it. The clan room is the gathering point in the building which sports furs of various rare species across the universe. Behind the retreat is a pen used by the Trandoshans to hold their prey for the next hunt.

The Hyperdyne University
-----------------------------------

Originally a small engineering college constructed shortly after the colonisation of Aliso, the Hyperdyne University was eventually taken over by Hyperdyne Industries not long before the arrival of Clan Plagueis as the company sought to get it claws into everything it could. The modern Hyperdyne University is little more than a training facility for Hyperdyne, but even some of Plagueis' Force users have been known to enrol in certain classes. 99% of all students of the University leave with a job at Hyperdyne, with at least half of those also sponsored by the company.#

The actual building has grown to be among the largest in Aliso City, with space for dozens of students to both live and learn on site, as well as accommodation for the majority of the staff. Aliso City's own relatively small size has prevented the University from growing to the size that it can start to attract potential students from the galaxy at large.
