  1. The Pentastar Alignment Faction: The Pentastar Alignment Faction Leader: Denal31 (Mike31 on Discord) Capital: TBD Planets: Ansion (I6), Esfandia (I6), Bescane (K3), Dubrillion (K3), Bastion (K3) Grid: N/A Sectors: N/A Members: Malen Garek, JOKA, PB Productions, Dark&Dusty03, h2brick, Lapius DESCRIPTION After the Emperor's death in 4 ABY, the Galactic Empire fragmented into multiple pieces. Grand Moff Ardus Kaine saw the Emperor's demise as an opportunity to establish his own Imperial Faction in the Outer Rim. However, rather than attempt to control the entire Outer Rim and risk conflict with multiple Remnants, the Grand Moff would concentrate on a few sectors instead. Kaine moved quickly to form a new faction with knowledge that many corporations in the targeted sectors would struggle to stay afloat without Imperial backing. With this in mind, the Moff would call a meeting with multiple corporation heads and local governors. During this meeting, Kaine presented a treaty that would align both Corporate and Imperial interests thus establishing an isolationist political conglomerate that would allow these companies to continue trade without interference from the New Republic. With the treaty signed by all parties, the Pentastar Alignment would be established. HISTORY LEADERSHIP Grand Moff Ardus Kaine Formerly the Grand Moff of the Oversector Outer, Kaine would establish the Pentastar Alignment in 4 ABY following the Emperor's death seeing it has an opportunity to establish his own Empire. Ardus Kaine desired actual power, rather than titles, and preferred to be at the core of the Empire when it came to making important decisions and determining how operations would be run. The Chamber of Order The Chamber of Order is the Upper Legislative Body of the Pentastar Alignment responsible for enacting new policies and dealing with threats to the Alignment's interests. The heads of influential families, Majority Shareholders of major corporations, and Local Governors/Moffs can be found in this council. Members are also responsible for requesting military assistance in addition to assigning Overseers to systems under the Pentastar Alignment's jurisdiction. While Grand Moff Kaine has the deciding vote, the Chamber has the ability to override any executive decision with a majority vote. ORGANIZATION The Pentastar Alignment, while using the Galactic Empire as a blueprint, differed from the former and is administratively split into two branches, Order and Enforcement, each with its own set of sub-branches. Once a recruit is granted access to the Alignment, he/she can choose to build for any of the organizations below! Enforcement The Enforcement Branch of the Pentastar Alignment is responsible for protecting Alignment assets and engaging in inter-galactic warfare if the situation arises. The Pentastar Patrol The Pentastar Patrol is the primary military organization in the Pentastar Alignment. The Patrol primarily consists of Ex-Imperial military, however in an attempt to bolster numbers and reduce internal tension within the Alignment's Territory, non-humans were allowed to serve as well. Due to the Isolationist policies of the Alignment, the Pentastar Patrol is primarily responsible for protecting Alignment Worlds and Assets from Mercenary Raids. However, if the need arises, the Pentastar Patrol can be mobilized in galactic scale combat. The Pentastar Alignment Navy Primarily consisting of former Imperial personnel and assets, the Navy is responsible for the defense of all Alignment worlds. The Alignment Navy has the ability to establish blockades and respond to various threats in short notice. Order Organizations within the Order branch uphold the decrees and interests of the Pentastar Alignment. The Imperial Knights The Imperial Knights are an order of Force-Practitioners loyal to the decrees of the Pentastar Alignment. They are primarily Gray Jedi by nature and do not draw from the dark-side of the force or completely follow the light. Despite being a fairly young order, the Imperial Knights have established themselves as the right-hand of the Chamber of Order and are sworn to uphold and carry out the decrees of the Pentastar Alignment The Great InQuestors of Judgement <Classified> Established early on in the formation of the Pentastar Alignment, the Great InQuestors of Judgement consist of a small number of force-practitioners who draw on the dark side of the force in order to further the not only the agenda of the Pentastar Alignment, but their own as well. Despite warnings from the head of the Imperial Knights, Trin-Yan Kaster, about their methods, Grand Moff Kaine views them as a necessary evil that can help advance the interests of the Alignment. Special Forces/Security Bureau Members of this organization are tasked with espionage of enemy Factions, spread of false propaganda to prevent systems from defecting to the New Republic, and the discreet elimination of enemy assets. TERRITORY A Current list of Pentastar Alignment Worlds and Assets Current Planets: Ansion (I6), Esfandia (I6), Bescane (K3), Dubrillion (K3), Bastion (K3) Grid: N/A Hyperspace Lanes: Namadii Corridor, Veragi Trade Route IMPORTANT CHARACTERS The people of the galaxy are what make it so intriguing. Beings from all around with different personalities and motives. Listed below are important Characters that you may come across when browsing various builds involving the Pentastar Alignment. These characters can both be NPCs or Player-Created Characters. Name (Player/NPC, Affiliation) Trin-Yan Kaster (NPC, Pentastar Alignment, Imperial Knights) Born the son of a highly ranked official in the Alignment, Kaster was offered up by his parents to the well-regarded Jedi Master Luke Skywalker for training after displaying some connection to the Force. Skywalker approached Kaster with some caution, but in the end liked his disposition and trained him among his first batch of students. Combined with discipline and self-control, Kaster would find himself excelling in lightsaber combat and well on his way to achieving the status of Jedi Knight until he caught word of a Dark Influence within the upper legislative branch of the Pentastar Alignment, the Chamber of Order. Distraught at the thought of Dark Jedi influencing the politics of what he called home, Kaster, unable to suppress these feelings, proceeded to leave the New Jedi Order, much to Skywalker's disapproval, and with the help of his Father requested an audience with Grand Moff Ardus Kaine in an effort to establish a group to provide opposition to the Grand InQuestor's influence. Seeing the InQuestors as a necessary evil, Kaine disregarded Kaster's warning about the Dark Jedi, but saw the benefit in adding more Force-Sensitives to the ranks of the Alignment. With this in mind, Kaine liking Kaster's intensity, tasked him with establishing a new order aimed at protecting and upholding the decrees of the Pentastar Alignment, The Imperial Knights. Andrephan Stormcaller (NPC, The Red Moons) A former Rebel Alliance officer, Stormcaller became disgruntled with the New Republic's inaction towards the Pentastar Alignment and formed the Mercenary Group; The Red Moons. These Mercenaries raid Alignment assets and worlds in an attempt to stunt its growth. AFFILIATED FACTIONS The Galaxy is large and filled with Factions of many kinds. The following affiliated Factions are small groups that you may come across when browsing various builds involving the Pentastar Alignment. These groups are generally introduced by fellow players and can either be for or against the Pentastar Alignment's interests. The Red Moons The Red Moons are a mercenary organization dedicated to the 'liberating' of worlds under Imperial Control. Frustrated with the New Republic's inaction towards the Alignment, the Red Moons have taken it upon themselves to do what the New Republic will not. These Mercenaries are the biggest threat to the Alignment's assets locally.

  2. *This entry has earned 14 XP* Word has spread of the Imperial Triumvirate's siege of Bastion. On the surface, Factions allied alongside the New Republic attempt to curb the Triumvirate's occupation. The Pentastar Alignment, looking to increase its strength in the area, views this as an opportunity. By order of Grand Moff Ardus Kaine, battlegroups are deployed to the system and ordered to take key fortresses and outposts on the planets surface in an attempt to take advantage of the multiple warring Factions. This endeavor is not met without opposition however. The Red Moons, a mercenary group based out of Entralla, sets out to disrupt the Alignment's plan thus forcing some troops to engage in unexpected combat. However, the conflict with the Red Moons was deemed to be only a minor inconvenience, as the threat would be handled without any major casualties.

    Faction: The Pentastar Alignment (PA)

    [Reserved]
  6. The Pentastar Alignment Faction: The Pentastar Alignment Faction Leader: Denal31 Capital: TBA Planets: Belkadan (L1), Iridonia (J7), Muunilinst (K4), Ord Trasi (L4), Vinsoth (N5) Description Following the death of Emperor Palpatine, the Empire fragmented into several splinter groups. One of these groups being the Pentastar Alignment. In 4 ABY, Grand Moff Ardus Kaine hosted the Pentastar Talks with various leaders in the Velcar-Free Commerce Zone. These talks resulted in the formation of the Pentastar Alignment. Once established, the Pentastar Alignment sought to maintain a strong grip on its borders. As a result, policy leaned more towards isolationism instead of expansion. Leadership Grand Moff Ardus Kaine Formerly the Grand Moff of the Oversector Outer, Kaine established the Pentastar Alignment in 4 ABY following the Pentastar Talks. Figure Templates Currently, the Pentastar Alignment does not differ much from the Galactic Empire in regards to troop appearance. Below are some templates for some of the units you may come across in the PA military. (Disclaimer: These are just basic templates. Liberties can be taken when creating figures for the Pentastar Alignment) Standard Infantry: The bulk of the Pentastar Alignment military consists of Stormtroopers. The majority of these troops are human, but some aliens may be found among their ranks. Officers: Officers in the Pentastar Alignment are responsible for managing enlisted personnel and leading military operations. Marines: These elite soldiers are generally stationed on Star Destroyers and specialize in boarding enemy starships as well as protecting high-priority assets. Other Examples How to Join To join the Pentastar Alignment you will need to send a PM to faction leader Denal31 or simply reply to this thread. I will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible. Territory (Work-in-Progress) (More edits will be made to this page in the coming days)
  7. I'm about to heap a bunch of praise on ya. This build slaps. I'll get my critiques out of the way real quick. I only have a few. The first one is the smaller waterfall. The white works very well for the larger fall, but looks kinda funky on the smaller one. Trans clear plates backed by white may have created a better look (emphasis on the maybe). The second is just repeating MB's comment on the exposed studs on the tall section. I think it primarily has to do with the rest of the rockwork outside of that section being primarily slopes. Although it does kinda work with the building being right there next to it. But those are just small things because the rest of this build is awesome. The first thing I'd like to mention are the colors. You've included a wild amount of color and managed to make it work. Nothing here seems out of place. The next thing is the layout. This may be one of the most unique layouts I have come across since I've gotten back into building. The houses are integrated into the landscape very well. Additionally, this is a build you don't normally see when someone makes a "Star Wars MOC" that makes it stand out that much more because its just refreshing to see. Finally, I hope you get that Gran haha. Great job!
  8. Great build! I do agree with the others about adding some rockwork in addition to the metal framing, but this is still a stellar build. Excellent bug design as well!
  9. There's so much to like about this build Goatman. The signs. The shops. The lights. That speeder. This is a super immersive build. Great job! PS: I'm stealing those I-beams

    [O10 - Ambria - TT] Digging Up the Past

    Great build Bjorn! I really enjoy the usage of the yellow (or is it yellow-orange) technic pieces for the platform. Additionally, that sled is pretty sweet. Big fan of those bars wrapped with the rubber bands.
  11. Ah storming the gate. Pretty epic scene here Ross.
  12. Nice! The tall windows help give this build an epic feel.
  13. Yeah. I agree on the lack of color. I just couldn't really think of a great way to add it in regards to the building. Perhaps a sign or different color crates could've helped mitigate that in hindsight. Ya know. I kinda like the idea of a sky blue background. I'll invest in one. Thanks Sim! The stiffest club in the galaxy haha. Thanks MB. Agreed on the neatness as well. As far as adding some weathering to the building, I felt like the best option would've been old gray. Unfortunately, I don't have much with me at the moment and I felt that dark tan wouldn't have looked right. PS: Glad you like the buildings. I'm going to try and mix some stuff up with my next few builds and try some new things since my last three builds were... well... buildings haha. Thanks! Tan technic pins come in handy when it comes to grass and crops.
