Sorry, there are too many acronyms in this game I guess. What do you mean by TCR?

The Commenor Remnant. If you can earn IP points by building on Era planets, but none of the available planets will earn IPs for my faction? :) Does it make sense?

Got it. It's correct that none of the planets currently controlled by TCR have an Era Build challenge on them. However, you still have access to some planets that have Era Builds. For example, Coruscant has an Old Republic Era Build. While that planet is controlled by Black Sun, everyone has access to it because of it's location on the Corellian Run. The Era Build is now public knowledge so anyone can take advantage of it.

We're in the process of adding a few more Era Builds so keep an eye on the map. TCR may have one in their territory very soon :wink:

Scores are up for all but the last two builds. If your build doesn't have a score, you may have forgotten the form for it. Check with your faction leaders if you can't find your score.

We've made two significant updates to the rules. 

 

 

 

The main purpose was to

  • reward highly active, yet new, builders;
  • allow for more factions to develop but prevent builders from getting too spread out; and
  • encourage collaborations and more sophisticated diplomacy between factions.

Keep an eye out for new types of challenges and announcements coming soon.

Not sure if these changes were updated in the main rules page.... as it still says 150 xp to "form own faction"

Good catch. Thank you. Now build something, slacker.

@Moff Wibbles I've noticed that when you submit your Google forms you are putting a dash in your coordinates. Please just type "J6", not "J-6". Otherwise the sheets won't read your entry correctly. I've fixed your past entries, just be careful for all future ones. Thanks!

No worries, thanks for letting me know. There's probably a few other mistakes in the forms, since I really didn't understand how IP worked at the time I filled them out. I've educated myself a bit more, so hopefully that should be the last round of errors.

Giving this game another good look after almost a year of neglecting it: how is the current status of the subofrum overall? How is the general activity, and what factions are the more active ones?

Also: if I wanted to play a somewhat outlaw-ish, scoundrel type of character, what faction would suit me best? Black Sun seems to be pretty hierarchially organised, and also not that active?

Welcome back @Darnok - well if you are an outlaw that supports the rebirth of the empire, The Triumvirate is not shy of employing scum and villainy - we are close to Hutt Space so an alliance with them seems likely... ;)

To be honest some factions are quite lethargic one...

To be a true scoundrel, I think you may choose the Black Sun just because this faction is not the most active and some new blood would be a good thing. Even if whatever faction will be suitable

A faction will be as active as you make it. Even if the leader isn't super active, it's really the members that will decide how much of a presence each faction will have in the galaxy.

I appreciate the quick response and admire what you do with the new faction. Seriously, you have some great stuff going on there!

Overall I feel like my ideas do not fit with the Triumvirate at all though - too many vhoops to jump through so to speak. Black Sun and the Confederacy are the candidates I'm looking into right now.

Hey @Darnok, I do admit I was quite inactive lately. I had a huge build to finish for the Bricking Bavaria exhibition and also RL was not that friendly to my hobby. But I do still have plans with the Black Sun and to do some more builds in SW universe and you're most welcome to join the BS if it suits your building and / or story telling desires. As for the other members, I can't help if there's players signing up just for the sake of being part of a faction and then not contributing to this game in any way. Sadly there's far too few people here, even less are active, to run this game faster and make it more interesting (in my opinion). There is no point in this being played by the faction leaders by themselves. But it's you players who can help in changing that!

No worries! I just wanted to let you know that the faction is open to creative story lines... ;) BS also sounds like a good fit... Enjoy, and welcome back...

Would it be allowed to have some kind of collaborative build with another person, if you were able to coordinate with that person?

Yes. Collaborating is encouraged. Unless they are Era Builds, each builders work should be posted separately.

Member Skills


  • In addition to joining a faction, each person will choose a skill to specialize in. This skill is used for storytelling and challenge purposes and is not meant to restrict what a player can or cannot build. If you pick Technician that doesn't mean your character cannot also fly star-fighters. But it does mean that if a challenge requires an Ace skill, a Technician does not qualify.
  • Each person needs to choose one of the main skill headings. Examples of each skill are listed in parentheses. For example, you should pick Ace, not Driver which is just an example of what an Ace skill might look like. 
    • Ace (Driver, Gunner, Pilot, Beast Rider)
    • Engineer/Technician (Mechanic, Droid Specialist, Shipwright, Cyber Tech)
    • Soldier (Commando, Foot Soldier, Sharpshooter, Heavy)
    • Explorer (Scout, Trader, Archaeologist, Big-Game Hunter)
    • Colonist (Homesteader, Community Elder, Councilman, Tradesman)
    • Smuggler (Scoundrel, Thief, Gambler, Gunslinger)
    • Bounty hunter/Hired gun (Assassin, Bodyguard/Enforcer, Marauder, Demolitionist)
    • Diplomat (Ambassador, Agitator, Analyst, Propagandist)
    • Guardian (Peacekeeper, Protector, Armorer, Warden)
    • Commander (Squadron Leader, Tactician/Strategist, Figurehead, Instructor)
    • Spy (Infiltrator, Informant, Slicer, Burglar)
  • Your first skill is free. Multiple skills may be earned by accumulating 50 XP building for Factions, XP earned in SoNE does not count for skills in Factions. 

this one for the skills

and for the planet :

Once a faction has earned 25 IP on a planet the planet is considered explored. Any Holocrons or other bonuses on that planet are discovered and visible to that faction. Once a faction has 50 IP on a planet, that planet is under their control. Opposing factions can take over or retake a planet by scoring 25 IP more than the current faction.

The Era Builds and Holocrons are the only active bonuses active right now. 

Eventually there will be a chose your own adventure challenge that incorporates skills. 

Plenty to build in the meantime.
