Rite of Supremacy: Escalation

RoS: Escalation

The fallout of the Tenixir Incident and the Collective’s false-flag assault on the Lyra system has plunged the Severian Principate into crisis. Thirsty for revenge and plunder, Tenixir Revenant cells have stepped up piracy throughout Principate space. Beset by these marauders and still hunting the remnants of its own mutineers, the Principate’s once-feared navy seems powerless to reassert order.

This galactic tinderbox has been ignited by the spark of greed: an illicit auction for a mysterious crystal has brought both factions into open conflict on the planet Dandoran. Skirmishes have erupted and both sides are primed for an escalation into all-out war. But neither side of this conflict is monolithic. Voices on both sides see a better way: an opportunity for a lasting, if tense, peace.

Recovering from the Siege of Arx, the Dark Council has decreed that the Brotherhood will not officially intervene in this brewing conflict despite entreaties from both factions. Instead, the Clans have set their members loose to aid, harm, or profit as they see fit.

Escalation is a Dark Brotherhood Vendetta Event, running from May 30th to July 6th.

Event Phases

  • Phase I of the Rite of Supremacy runs from May 30 until June 13
  • Phase II of the Rite of Supremacy runs from June 20 until July 6

Participation

Competitions in each Phase are divided into competition types, or 'bins'. The first time a member participates in a competition within a Phase's bin, that member is awarded the participation points associated with that bin. In addition, members earn bonus participation points by participating in at least one competition in each bin achieving full participation for that phase.

Phase I and Phase II will each grant an additional 3 participation points for completing all bins in a phase, while the Event Long Phase will grant an additional 6 participation points for completing all bins. Individual competitions still award seals and credits, and members will earn Novae if they place in the top three and placement points for top 10 in most competitions.

Subfactions and Pledging

RoS: Escalation Faction Pledge page

Participants will pledge to a sub-faction at the beginning of the RoS and their placement/participation points will contribute to the total score for their chosen sub-faction.

Once you choose a sub-faction to pledge to, you will be listed on the pledge page under your sub-faction of choice along with everyone else who has pledged to that sub-faction. Teams for group events can be organized with anyone else pledged to the same sub-faction as you. Telegram war chats have been created for each of the four sub-factions, and you will see the invite link to your sub-faction’s chat on the pledge page once you’ve made your choice. Join your side’s chat for help with organizing teams and general vendetta hype!

Note that pledging is mandatory for participation in this vendetta. You will be prompted to pledge prior to subscribing to any competition. You are free to change your pledge at any time until you participate in a competition. Once you have submitted an entry, you will be unable to change your pledge. Note that this includes any gaming activity submitted for an RoS competition, even if submitted by another member of your group.

Placement and Hero Titles

Sub-factions and Clans earn points when members participate in competition types/bins and when members place in a competition. The sub-faction earning the most points at the end of the event will be declared the winner and its victory will drastically impact the fictional outcome of the vendetta and the future of both factions.

The top three individuals earning the most points in RoS: Escalation will be awarded War Hero titles. Members with tie scores will be broken following an Olympic-style Novae and placement ranking.

Additionally, the ten highest scoring members of each sub-faction will receive a free sub-faction-themed item! All other participating members will be able to purchase their sub-faction's item for a limited time following the conclusion of the vendetta.

The rules for placement in individual sub-competitions are covered within their individual descriptions below.

The weight for placement of each competition is described within the competition.
