Affiliation: Neutral Headquarters/Capital: Galidraan (R6) Systems: Centares (R7), Columex (R6), The Wheel (R7), Trogan (R7), Vinsoth (N5), Ciutric (N5), Abafar (N5), Toprawa (P5) Sectors: Vorzyd sector, Maldrood sector Grid: N5, R7 Description The Stygian Caldera Society (SCS) was a shadowy syndicate led by the former Imperial Advisor, Lord Eniro Hassat. Publicly, the organisation dealt in corporate manufacturing, technology, research and engineering, and was involved in business across the galaxy. In reality, however, the faction was an occultist crime syndicate run by a group of powerful bureaucrats, building on a substantial portion of the remnants of the Imperial Department of Military Research. Buried in secrecy, layers of bureaucracy, and corporate masquerades, the Stygian Caldera Society was devoted to studying the dark side, and experimenting with the occult. Most of the society’s directive was initiated by Emperor Palpatine himself, but with the increase of high ranking imperial officers dabbling in the occult, the society’s focus shifted towards weaponising dark powers, gaining influence and wealth across the galaxy. History The Stygian Society is a fairly young organization, but it’s dark ideology and sinister agenda is as old as the Sith Order. Organization The Stygian Caldera Society is a collective of departments and subsidiaries, ruled by the ‘Inner Circle’ of the Stygian Caldera Society. Some departments are closely woven into the Society, working directly towards the Society’s agenda. Others have representatives in the inner circle, but act independently, following occasional orders and directives. THE INNER CIRCLE The Inner Circle is the governing entity of the Stygian Caldera Society. This cabal is shrouded in secrecy, and is exclusively for initiated members. The inner circle has its own internal ranks, but is ruled through an iron fist by the four lords, and the overlord. IMPERIAL DEPARTMENT OF MILITARY RESEARCH The Stygian Caldera society naturally formed around a large portion of Imperial Department of Military Research operations overseen by Lord Eniro Hassat, and consolidated under Dr. Obulon’s leadership. The operations of the department included the Maw Installation, The Acolyte Program, Project Harvester, Project Starscream, some projects from the Tarkin Initiative, and the Dark Trooper Program. Other projects were even more secretive, dabbling in dark sciences, the unnatural, and occult. The department also held volumes of information on other Imperial research projects across the galaxy. With the increasing interest in the occult, the department was often referred to as the Imperial Cabinet of Madness. You might find yourself as a lead scientist or engineer working on a highly classified project, trying to unearth the secrets of wicked artifacts, or collect subjects for your experiments. Or, you might be travelling the galaxy, as an archeologist, searching for lost relics in ancient ruins. STYGIAN SOCIETY DEVOTEES With so many operations conflicting with the Galactic Concordance, the society had grown a substantial network of specialized agents, and devotees, to lead highly secretive operations. Navigating the shadows of the occult and criminal underworld required a special breed of operative. You may find yourself as a former Special Forces agent, carrying out covert missions for the society. Or you could be a Relic Hunter scouring the galaxy for powerful Sith artifacts, vital for some cult ritual. ARMED FORCES, INTELLIGENCE, AND SECURITY The consolidation of research operations incorporated several ISB departments, and armed forces, under the society’s leadership. These forces were responsible for safeguarding imperial interests, and would continue to do so for the SCS. In addition to safeguarding activities and assets, the SCS was also joined by various local law-enforcement agencies, on worlds loyal to the SCS. You might find yourself as a special forces operative, agent or an intelligence officer reporting to Lord Amus, leader of the SCS Intelligence, and CrimSec. You could also be reporting to one of the Imperial Officers, among the ranks of the more classically trained armed or naval forces. Or, you could be an elite member of one of the many local law-enforcement units, loyal to the SCS. OTHER AFFILIATIONS, DEPARTMENTS, AND SUBSIDIARIES Territory The heart of the Stygian Caldera Society stretches from Centares in the Maldrood sector, northwards past Columex to the Thanium sector. However, this region is not controlled by occupation, but rather through influence and political loyalty. In general the Stygian Caldera does not conquer worlds, as much as it infects, and manipulates systems into submission. Outside the Stygian society’s heartlands, locations are scattered all across the galaxy, and include research outposts, archeological sites. occult enclaves, and other sinister facilities. Assets Frequently Asked Questions HOW DO I JOIN? Send an application in PM to faction leader @Darth Bjorn, building your case for, why you are a perfect fit for the Stygian Caldera Society. WHAT SHOULD MY BUILDS LOOK LIKE?As a faction rising from the ashes of the Imperial Department of Military Research, your builds could be inspired by imperial aesthetics. The Stygian Caldera Society is a villainous faction, meaning that a sinister, and dark undertone in your builds are highly encouraged. WHERE CAN I BUILD? The Stygian Caldera Society is more about small secretive enclaves and outposts, than a massive territory. That means that the SCS is scattered across the galaxy, with a few permanent strongholds. Above you will find a map of sectors, systems and hyperlanes accessible to the faction. You are allowed to build anywhere in the Star Wars galaxy, but only by building in accessible systems can you earn Influence Points (IP = System Control) for the faction. Members of the Stygian Caldera Society can build in any system, where the faction has control or a presence (red regions, grids, and systems). Members can also build on any system along the red hyperlanes.
