Finished
[Tension in the Empire] The Ties That Divide

Prompt:

There are many splintered groups in a government, in a movement, and even within a Clan. In this case, you will be describing one of the factions within the Orian system involved in this greater conflict. The group may have the interests of the Orian system in mind, may be against the Clan and Brotherhood in entirety or may have their own esoteric or arcane secrets which bring them into the system's strife.

Entry Requirements:

  • An introduction to the faction (background, relations to existings groups in DB/CNS lore and how it might change given the public pronouncement of the (Sadowan) Orian Empire.

  • An brief description of a potential 'common' member of that faction in paragraph form.

  • A tagline or quote that embodies the ideals of the faction (unique to that group).

Grading

Submissions will be graded based on the below criteria:

  • 30% - Creativity. How interesting/creative is the Faction or group?

  • 40% - Realism and Adherence to the Prompt. Is it clear how the Faction fits in the universe? Is the Faction realistic in the Star Wars universe, given the DB etc? Are character descriptions and aspects appropriate? (Note that members do not need Voice Staff level realism checks for NPC CSes, just don’t go overboard. Use available Voice resources as guidelines and you will be fine).

  • 20% - Integration. Do the three required components of the Faction integrate well? Do they provide a basis to expand the faction?

  • 10% - Syntax. Are syntax errors widespread across the documents? Do the documents adhere to basic formatting that allow them to be easily read?

The Delivers of Justice

Created in 38 ABY following the return to the Orian System of Clan Naga Sadow and their declaration of open rule, the Delivers of Justice are a self proclaimed resistance against rule on Aeotheran, demanding the return to democracy. They model themselves on the Voice of Justice, a similar group that defied the Dlarit Corporation's rule in 27ABY until their destruction. They list the martyred former V.O.J leader Deliverance as their banner for recruitment and ideals.

Publicly the group advocate non violent resistance and disobedience where possible, and attacks on purely military targets and supply lines used to oppress the population. In reality though intelligence suggests that they are more interested in overthrowing the rule of Naga Sadow for their own purposes. It has also been indicated by the capture and autopsy of one of their agents that they may be sleeper cells left behind by the Organisation, the scientific group behind the original V.O.J they are modelled on. With the Organisation destroyed though what purpose their former agents have, if they are that, remains unclear. The agent in question terminated themselves before they could be interrogated.

Reports suggest that the members of the faction are split between a core of former V.O.J members, who display signs of heavy augmentation and chemical stimulus, and the ordinary members who are mainly fanatical and disposable. Intel suggests though that experimentation on the latter may have commenced and dark and sinister rumours of unorthodox enhancements at secret facilities are rife. These may have varying levels of success and the fate of the 'failed' experiments are being kept under wraps to not deter recruitment and the groups image.

Recruitment seems to be ongoing and successful if rumours of the groups growth is true, and the combination of secret information and adverts being sent out above Shar Dakhan's monitoring continue, both revealing their version of the truth, and the simple slogan “Justice for All.”
