  1. The Black Sun Crime Syndicate Faction: The Black Sun Faction Leader: dvogon Faction pseudonyms: (BSS), The Black Sun Syndicate Affiliation: Crime Syndicates Headquarters/Capital: Scarif Systems: Scarif (S15), Molavar (S15), Kamino (S15), Tatooine (R16), Geonosis (R16), Koiogra (R16), Chardaan (N13), Nal Hutta & Nar Shaddaa (S12) (in progress), and Bothawui (R14) (in progress) Sectors: Abrion Sector, Grohl Sector, Arkanis Sector, Hutt Space, Bothan Space Grid Control: S15, R16  Description "It is a vast criminal syndicate…its influence felt on every planet from the Core Worlds to the Outer Rim. Black Sun has existed for hundreds of years, and embedded itself in the very fiber of the galaxy. The resources at its disposal are almost limitless. The soldiers under its command number in the tens of thousands. The ignorant even call it the most powerful force in the known universe." ―Darth Sidious, to Darth Maul Many things have changed in the Galaxy... The Black Sun Crime Syndicate has always been part of the core history of the Galaxy. We have seen so many governments to raise and fall that we surely know how to adapt ourselves to these new times in the Galaxy. The Republic, the Empire, the Rebellion, the New Republic, the Jedis, the Sith... We have seen all of them raising and declining. Now it is not different. If criminal activities were not profitable there would be no criminals in the galaxy. But the nature of the species and their unmentionable weaknesses is different, that is why we are still here when so many others have disappeared. History The task of controlling the Black Sun criminal syndicate by Savan, our leader during Factions 1.0 and the niece of the powerful Black Sun Underlord Prince Xizor, was a difficult one. She had to compete on power and influence against the other Vigos of the Black Sun, leading to an internal secret war among all of them. Savan got her own fate trying to capture the human replica droid Guri. She was captured and sent to an unknown prision. The Black Sun organisation internal war drastically reduced its previous power and its influence as a cohesive syndicate almost disappeared, splitting the black market control through the galaxy in many small criminal groups with their own local power. Leadership When Emperor Palpatine declared his Galactic Empire in 19 BBY, Fliry Vorru was made Grand Moff of the Corellian Oversector and assumed the role of commander of the 2nd Sector Army. Prince Xizor, Vorru's principal rival, betrayed him to balance his growing power and was sent to Kessel prison. Some years later he was liberated by the Rogue Squadron to help them to infiltrate in Coruscant. That gave him the opportunity to take control of the Black Sun syndicate remnants. Following the Alliance invasion of Coruscant, Vorru moved to Thyferra to control the Bacta production until he was jailed again at the end of the Bacta War. Now, after escaping for a second time from the Kessel prison, he is reorganizing the Black Sun syndicate in the Outer Rim... Organisation The leader of the Black Sun organisation is the Underlord. To oversee the Syndicate activities of different sectors there are nine deputies called Vigos reporting directly to the Underlord. If you are less idealistic with the feet on the ground, our Syndicate is the right place to improve your skills while building your own great name in the galaxy. Smugglers, spies, bounty hunters and all alike are welcome to join our mission. Those with enough guts and determination may also become one of our most feared Vigos' deputies or even become one of our nine Vigos. We are always looking for the best of the best! Check out our FAQ below for details! Our current Vigos and the main galaxy regions they are assigned to are, from left to right: The Outer Rim - Geonosis: Paang Dee The Colonies - Castell - Griv Gade The Deep Core - Empress Teta: Nis Avar Hutt Space - Nar Shaddaa: Jott the Hutt The Expansion Region - Cyrillia: Klais BraaThe Inner Rim - Chardaan: Marek Drak The Mid Rim - Daalang: Sivian Salev The Core Worlds - Coruscant: Hayek RohUnknown Regions - Rakata Prime: Dian Zee You may find us almost everywhere, if you look at the right places, as you would expect. Best chance to know about us is to ask for the Black Sun in any reputable cantina of the Galaxy. <music theme playing in the background> Maybe, if it is profitable enough we could be even managing it... Great cantina owners always accept our Syndicate as special members as we use to keep their business healthy in many ways --do not need to enter into the details--. Surely you will hear interesting stories about us there! <next music theme now playing> We are used to go back to our beloved cantinas in the sector we are working on to discuss about our business activities, Galaxy breaking news, the next steps of our missions, or just to relax a bit prior the next ones. Sharing experiences and adventures with other Syndicate members is one of our best hobbies, as we are fundamentally part of the same family. And trust us, we are always at hand when any of us is in trouble! We are accepting people from all species and from all corners of the Galaxy. As far as they are worthy of belonging to our Syndicate, we have no prejudices. Once you are in, you will have the protection of the Syndicate in the whole Galaxy. And believe us, it will be enough. We are waiting for you! Go there and join us! Our Territory The darker purple subregion in the Outer Rim is where the Black Sun Syndicate is being reorganised. Under this initial subregion we have control of grid S15 and R16, shown in dark purple squares. We have also access to other subregions of the Hutt Space main region as we are affiliated to Crime Syndicates, shown in lighter purple. Main hyperspace lanes we have access to are shown with dark purple lines: Corellian Run and Triellus Trade Route. For some of them we have access to the grids where the trade route pass, shown with light purple squares. We have also access to the Hydian Way hyperspace lane, but only to systems located in the lane itself. Hi-res version here: Black Sun Hi-Res map. Frequently Asked Questions HOW DO I JOIN? Send an application in PM (Eurobricks)/DM (Discord) to faction leader @dvogon, explaining why you have the guts to be part of the Black Sun Syndicate. If you are a good candidate, be sure without any doubts that you will joining our faction! WHAT SHOULD MY BUILDS LOOK LIKE?Our faction, The Black Sun, has a long history in the Galaxy. We promote all shadow deals, contraband and black market activities to fund our faction. We have always done that and to a great extent that is a good business endeavour, where you would have the best opportunities and prosperity in the Galaxy. A dark undertone is always welcome in the builds, giving our primary business, but we always fit in the place we are, as our activities are developed mostly unnoticed by most people. If anyone takes notice and that was not on intent, feel free to terminate them ;) WHERE CAN I BUILD? Think about any place in the Galaxy to build on, where you could be transferring cargo to other ships, making deals with other species, protecting some targets, interrogating witnesses of activities we are tracking on... There are so many possibilities! The builds could be located almost everywhere: in very luxury places like a skyscraper apartment or social party location, in a cantina either in a big city or in a lost planet, in the middle of the space, within a spaceship, in a space port facility, or just in any dark alley of a Galaxy big city, to give you some samples. Remember that 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. Any IPs you earn for the faction will help you to scale in the ranks of the Black Sun Syndicate. If you have any question, proposal of new targets, or just you would like to have a suggestion on where you could make a build to help the faction ongoing activities, please send a PM (Eurobricks)/DM (Discord) to faction leader @dvogon to get advise on those. But remember, we promote great self confidence within our members and we value most their own initiative! Members of the Black Sun Syndicate can build in any system throughout the Galaxy, where the faction has control or a presence (purple regions, grids, and systems). Members can also build on any system along the purple hyperlanes. For any more technical questions on where to build of if one system is controlled or accessible to our faction, feel free to send a PM (Eurobricks)/DM (Discord) to faction leader @dvogon. HOW COULD I BECOME A VIGO DEPUTY OR A VIGO OF THE BLACK SUN? Gain 50 IPs for the faction to become one of our extremely feared Vigos' Deputies. You can choose for which Vigo you want to work with. That will be a proof of your commitment to the Syndicate. Post a build with your achievement to be pinned in this thread and let others in the Galaxy to know about you! Gain 100 IPs for the faction to become one of our 9 mighty Vigos of the Black Sun. Exemplarity and excellent work within the Syndicate has always the appropriate prize. You will be in charge of one of our 9 regions, overseeing our business and other syndicate-related activities, replacing one of the 9 current ones. Post a build with your achievement for pinning in this thread and let be known and feared by anyone else, biological or mechanical, in the Galaxy. Bringing your XPs from Factions 1 season and gaining IPs for Black Sun in season 2 also counts for the total IPs to become a Vigo Deputy or a Vigo.
  2. Meeko Vox, leader of a small crime syndicate looking to make it into the spice running business. He was an elusive target but after interrupting several of his operations he finally showed himself on Nar Shaddaa. Word is he's been working closely with The Imperial Triumvirate, providing them access to shipment routes for supplies. Chances are he knows where I can find the Triumvir hiding in the outer rim. Whether you want to or not, Meeko, you're going to tell me what I want to know. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Finally got to build for the Black Sun. I took some liberties with Nar Shaddaa and tried to go for the more industrial undercity look, something a bit akin to Bespin's undercity. Let me know what you guys think and thanks for viewing.

    Faction: Black Sun

    Faction: Black Sun Faction Leader: @dvogon Headquarters: Nar Shaddaa Planets: Coruscant, Darkknell, Ord Mantell, Nar Shaddaa More than a year has passed since the destruction of the Falleen's Fist and death of prince Xizor. Though the blow was devastating the organisation did not fall apart just yet. Thanks to prince Xizor's niece Savan the Black Sun underwent some drastic changes. All nine Vigos were replaced by trusted individuals hand picked by Savan herself. The battle of Jakku is now over and resources of the Empire are almost depleted. The new Republic is also trying to lick the wounds and it is now time to start connecting smaller criminal organisations under one big faction and gain former glory. Black Sun will rise once more! Savan with her personal body guards - members of Red Gauntlet. If you are not much for the politics and the false order each side of the conflict was promising or just prefer to walk on the razor's edge for the profit the Black Sun is what you are looking for. Smugglers, spies, bounty hunters and all alike are welcome to join our mission to become the strongest faction in the galaxy. Help us destroy the Hutt Cartel, command a subsidiary clan or climb the ranks all the way to become one of the nine Vigos who are overseeing our operations in each of the nine sectors. The current nine Vigos of the Black Sun from left to right: Deep Core - Empress Teta: Nesa Daar Core - Coruscant: Andrew Leacor Colonies - Fondor: Vuddo Sheemee Inner Rim - Manaan: Mirsara Sinlem Expansion Region - Corsin: Antjos Waltho Mid Rim - Ord Mantell: Gra Viek Outer Rim - Darkknell: Neldepir Hutt Space - Nar Shaddaa: Honul Fusado Unknown Regions - Cioral: Zivesias Although Savan's main quarters are still located on Coruscant, Black Sun has gained quite some enemies after prince Xizor's defeat. There was a need of another location crowded enough to get all the resources and supplies needed and to be able to lay low and run the operations under the radars of our enemies. Nar Shaddaa seemed to fit perfectly. There seem to be a lot of holocron findings reported lately and it would be a shame not to gain some of the valuable information for ourselves. Not to mention the price these things reach on the black market! Once we gain more control over the systems around Coruscant, access to a lot more planets will be granted and our search will become much easier. "The ignorant even call it the most powerful force in the known universe." - Darth Sidious about the Black Sun Join the Black Sun and let's make all the rest think the same!
  4. *Your entry has earned 19 XP* It has been a long time since we have been preparing a mission to explore planets in a search for new holocrons. With that in mind, the right versatile and fast ship is a must. Hopefully we still have enough YT-2400 variant light freighters specially tailored for Black Sun business activities... Black Sun members love those Corellian Engineering Corporation starships. Compact and flexible, with enough cargo space, the right armour, great laser defense cannons, a blazing fast hyperdrive and small enough for any difficult mission. The interior distribution is very compelling as well... Fahne is onboarding the freighter. She cannot read the mission details until the ship is on its flying track... Fahne: We’ve been waiting for this too much. Is all the crew ready? 8-LOM: Sure! We’ve checked everything. Twice. We can go now... Fahne: Take care of the cargo. This one is very very expensive. You can fuel several star destroyers with these Coaxium. Additional photos of all details are included here:
  5. *Your entry has earned 8 XP* Joott the Hutt, a well known Black Sun crime lord with headquarters located in Nal Hutta, is preparing an expedition to the planet Rinn, trying to find new holocrons in the Outer Rim. A selected group of Black Sun members have been personally selected by Joott the Hutt for the risky mission. In addition to finding holocrons it’s very important to securely deliver a cargo of coaxium to fund the ongoing expeditions to the Outer Rim sectors. This is the expedition team:
  6. *Your entry has earned 30 XP* The Calodan Chronicles. Chapter Twenty Three... continued.: So there I was on a rental landing pad above Montellian Serat. My bounty. Oh well, that’s another story for another day… There I was, with a few associates of mine, friends if you will, about to make the deal of a lifetime. A Black Sun merchant, a Pyke ironically, had inquired to inspect the goods, and so there we were. Let me say. If you’ve ever seen a Pyke up close, you can tell when they like what they see. He was practically oozing of excitement. Well, maybe I’m exaggerating but you get what I’m going at… To be continued... The (in)famous Pantoran, Haxon Calodan sweet-talking a potential customer... The Black Sun merchant and his posse... Intrigued, but not convinced... Haxon being extra convincing... /// This Haxon fella is gonna show up again! Guaranteed! From left to right: Black Sun security guard, Pyke Merchant, Old droid due for an oil bath, another Black Sun security guard... And some extra shots below...
  7. *Your entry has earned 6 XP* Following our leads we seized from the Pyerce agent we captured on Coruscant, I went to Aargau to get a better understanding of what we're dealing with, and I needed the help of a old friend for this. Landing on it was no easy task, especially with the BAS scanning every ship who came and go from the planet, but there's nothing a bribe can't handle, and so I landed in one of the forests surrounding the capital. On the road I came across the wreckage of a civillian speeder, I couldn't tell if it's previous owner abandonned it there or simply lost it, but I paid no more attention and I simply kept going. You're kinda used to see a lot of this junk where I'm going.
  8. *Your entry has earned 14 XP* A few days ago, one of the New Republic A-wings that was patrolling in the Deep Core region got a technical problem with one of the engines, forcing him to make an emergency landing on the nearest planet. To this day, the safety investigation following this incident has not yet demonstrated whether it was a real technical problem or a sabotage attempt to the efforts of the New Republic
  9. *Your entry has earned 6 XP* After investigating the abandonned factory, it was time for Johnar to go back outside and make a call. ??? : So, how are things going out there ? Johnar : The gift is under the tree, just need to call the nice kids so they come pick it up. ??? : Heh, you know Life Day's passed, right ? Johnar : I do, but I'm still in the mood. Anyway, tell me you have some news for me ??? : Of course I have...
  10. *Your entry has earned 10 XP* Johnar : Anyway, tell me you have some news for me. ??? : Of course I have. We just captured a fleeing Pyerce agent in our territory. Johnar : Pyerce ? Taarna, now's not the time for jokes. Taarna : Says the one who's still in the mood of Life Day. But yeah, Pyerce's still alive, and we also got our hands on a mysterious crate. Seems our guest was desperate about sending it off world. Johnar : Send him to the higher ups, he will be usefull as a bargaining chip. Taarna : And the crate ? Johnar : Bring it to the ship, I'll be there soon.
  11. *Your entry has earned 10 XP* Coruscant have always been busy, and now more than ever with the Life day happening. Decorations hanged from the windows, holo-advertising in the streets... And yet, something odd was still happening, as usual. Reports speaks of a cloaked figure clad in Imperial armor being chased by a Black Sun mercenary in the lower levels of the planet.
  12. *Your entry has earned 6 XP* Hello everyone, Today I present my entry for Episode VI of Factions. The Black Sun, wanting to gain strength in the chaos and protect their assets, sent a large task force of ships in an attempt to disrupt Pyerce's blockade and protect the troop landers. This build depicts the bridge of the flagship of this fleet, the mighty Vanquisher. Please forgive my photo editing skills, as I am still quite new to the game in that regard. Pictures: Untitled Untitled Untitled C&C appreciated. Thanks!
  13. *Your entry has earned 7 XP* Hello everyone, Today I present my entry for Episode VI of Factions. The Black Sun, wanting to gain strength in the chaos and protect their assets, landed ground troops on Bonadan in an attempt to carve out some of the planet's resources for the gang's purpose. The build depicts a skirmish between Pyerce's stormtroopers and some Black Sun foot-soldiers, reinforced by an IG bounty droid. I tried to base the build off of the concept art for Bonadan from the old Duel of the Fates script. Please forgive my photo editing skills; I am quite new to the game in that regard. Pictures: Untitled by ryan connor Untitled by ryan connor Untitled by ryan connor Untitled by ryan connor C&C appreciated, thanks.
  14. *Your entry has earned 6 XP* With the the fall of the Empire following the batlle of Jakku, many Imperial starfighters found themselves on the black market, either selled by deserters, or stolen from remnants and selled anyway. That's how Johnar recently made acquisition of a Tie Interceptor, and repurposed it for his personnal use. He spent hours modifying the fighter, including installing a hyperdrive and shields generators. And he also given the left solar collector wing a blue paintjob, nicknaming his ship "Midnight Wanderer" More info and pictures in the spoilers tab: With it, he wanted to go back to a special place for him. Balmorran Arms Factory, his former workplace...
  15. Hello everyone, Today I present my first build back on the forums in a long time, my first factions build, and my first starship MOC, so hopefully it turned out alright. I haven't had time to get some decent editing on the photos, but I think they will work for now. My build is an Incom Z-95 Headhunter. Set after The Return of the Jedi, I was going for a look similar to the change from T-65 to T-70 X-wing, more refined and new looking than the usual model of the ship. This Headhunter is piloted by the black sun in their escapades, and it is currently docked at a small outpost, manned by old, re-purposed, battled droids, on Tatooine. Untitled by ryan connor, on Flickr Untitled by ryan connor, on Flickr Untitled by ryan connor, on Flickr Untitled by ryan connor, on Flickr Here are some Pics of just the Headhunter: Untitled by ryan connor, on Flickr Untitled by ryan connor, on Flickr Untitled by ryan connor, on Flickr Thanks for viewing, C&C appreciated, It's good to be back
  16. *Your entry has earned 10XP* After picking some stuff from Coruscant, now I’m back home. Lately I have no other home than this small apartment at Brentaal, close to the center of the Galaxy. I always liked this one, I don’t know exactly why. My old 2-1B series medical droid is always happy when I come back home, and it's specially helpful when something goes wrong. It manages the bacta tank like nobody else. Today I have a visit from some old good friends. I’ve prepared something for them. Here, from the apartment balcony, nights are never dark like in the periphery. But still it’s possible to see many solar systems, specially Coruscant, the center of the Empire and the Republic before, which is not that far away. This place is actually a safe house. We have many across the galaxy and nowadays they are very handy for what they are. But let's go back to my guests. It's time to let them eat something... It's always great to have a nice evening for discussing in the living room. So many things are happening nowadays. We are waiting for instructions from the hyper-communicator on the table. The living room has my library plenty of old and new books for read and reference, among other artifacts. Knowledge was and will always be irreplaceable. My astromech droid R2-D9 is a bit nervous with the waiting... Finally we got a hyper-communication for a mission! We should grab some additional resources. Behind the library we have some special goodies for this kind of task... The hidden compact fusion energy power-plant is quite handy to recharge stuff like that and specially my prove droid, which is a resource hog. I'm unsure of what kind of dressing should I have for this mission: Like a beggar in a suburban? Elegant, like the last time with the Brentaal ambassador? Smart casual? Who knows! Hopefully I'm prepared. I have to be perfect in every situation. And for particularly difficult ones I have my favourite hidden outfit: But before doing anything else it's time to have a shower in the upper floor. This multipurpose bacta tank was a bargain when I found it for sale in Denevar. Now we are prepared for the next move...
  17. Chapter 1: Sewer Rat Cleff Jiwa was out of breath, his breathing ragged as he ran for his life. His right foot splashed into the sewer sludge and almost slipped on some sort of mush, the contents of which he'd rather not think about. After a short slide on the mush, he regained his footing and kept running. The smell was awful, but that was the least of his worries. Who sent Lash after me? No one was supposed to know! It wasn't even that much! Cleff was just a low level Black Sun enforcer, sent to collect protection money from various establishments from Nar Shaddaa's Red Light Sector. Sure, he took a little more than he was supposed to, which he skimmed for himself, but it was just a few credits, nothing more than a rounding error. Pew! A flash of red from a blaster bolt just missed his head and glanced off the sewer wall ahead of him. A ladder! [ Cleff saw a ladder leading up to the streets of Nar Shaddaa to his left and ran for it. Sure, it would take him some time to climb it, but he was definitely dead if he continued to run in his current path. Almost ther... Pew! Pew! Instead of jumping up and grabbing a rung of the ladder and climbing to safety, Cleff felt his body give out as it fell, out of his control, and splashed into the contents of the sewer. His final thoughts were of just how awful everything smelled and tasted. The bounty hunter, Lash, hovered over the body, holstering a pair of silver LPA NN-14 blaster pistols. ++++++ Sindeen was never more glad that her suit could switch to its own air supply, though the outside of the armor would need a thorough cleaning when this was over. Her suit was a customized version of the imperial jumptrooper armor, something she created for herself before she left the imperial army. The combination of her rank as a stormtrooper captain and the fact that she was the daughter of a famous retired general offered her many perks in the imperial army that she took full advantage of. The suit wasn't as advanced as what the Mandalorians used, but it was more robust and easier to use, and replacement parts were much more available. She spoke into the comm in her helmet to address her crew, "Target secured." "You have a funny way of saying 'dead', captain," the droid, FISS, replied. "Just arrange for a pick up," she replied. "I'd love nothing more than to traipse through the sewers of Nar Shaddaa and drag a corpse soaked in sewage back to the ship. Consider it done." Sindeen frowned inside her helmet. Not for the first time, she realized that she has never met a droid who wasn't snarky. She reminded herself, again, that she would look into how these things were programmed when she had some time. "Uh...Captain?" Karek, the pilot of her crew, uttered. She hated that 'Uh'. Karek only used it when something wasn't right. She let him continue, "Go on." "I've been monitoring imperial channels and there's a lot of chatter right now. From what I can tell, there's been a huge battle at Jakku. The Seeker...isn't that your sister's ship?" Sindeen's sister, Pom, had followed her footsteps and became an imperial stormtrooper. The last time Sindeen saw her sister was when Pom had gone home to Muunilinst to visit their father. She had tracked her sister just to check up on her. A chill went down her spine, "What about the Seeker?" "It's been lost. It seems the navy lost a lot of ships," Karek replied. "Prepare the ship. NOW!" She yelled as she flew towards where the Dark Ruby was docked. Comments and criticisms are all welcome!!!
  18. *Your entry has earned 3XP* This warehouse of Nar Shaddaa was once run down and abandonned, but after some renovations it became a nice place to live and keep a low profile. Old pics here:
  19. When I was assigned my first mission as ISB, I didn't imagine I would be on another rahtar chase after the Black Sun Syndicate. To think It wasn't too long ago that I was hunting Xizor's spies back on Tatooine with Ulric's unit. Except this time was different. We weren't on some outer rim planet and the target wasn't some petty traitor. This time, the mark was no other than Prince Xizor. Apparently he's been biting off more than he can chew. I wasn't given the details, but ISB wanted him captured at all costs. Several teams of storm commandos were dispatched to push through Xizor's palace. But as it turns out, we weren't the only ones. The rebels had a mission of their own at the palace. Given the circumstances, we weren't allowed to fire on any rebel forces. The mercenaries, however, was a different story. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hey guys, back with a bit of a rushed/quick build for this challenge(ran out of time but I figured somethings better than nothing, right). I took a bit of creative freedom and modeled Xizor's palace after Tatooine architecture. Since Xizor always reminded me of Djinns, I thought Tatooine's middle-eastern-like design fit his character's look. Hope you guys like it, tell me what you think and thanks for viewing!
  20. Xizor’s Palace, on the planet Coruscant…. [-Accessing personal logs…….RYN……complete-] Had somebody told me three rotations ago that the Empire and the Rebellion would be “working together” to take down one of the most powerful crime lords in the galaxy, I would have laughed and called them crazy. But that’s the position I find myself in now. Command put me in charge of a small squad of soldiers to assault Xizor’s personal palace, an epic, heavily fortified structure just smaller than the Imperial Palace. Legend has it that if you spent a whole year inside the palace, you wouldn’t even see all the bathrooms inside, let alone every room. Thankfully Alliance Intelligence had kindly given each soldier a holo-map of his palace in order to more efficiently find Princess Leia and not get lost within its hundreds of rooms. While other members of both factions infiltrated up through the sewers, my particular squad rappelled from a U-Wing onto one of the many balconies lining the edges of the structure, after a fly-by shooting insured that we would encounter minimal resistance on impact. The balcony, adorned with exotic plants and greenery, lead to a long hallway in which we met our first foes. Near a door at the end, a small barricade had been set up by Black Sun mercenaries using various crates and cylinders. Once the mercenaries spotted us, they immediately began firing across the room, lighting it up with various red and green laser flares. I ordered my men to hug the walls and wait for pauses between firing to advance up the expensively decorated hall. One of their men unwisely decided to try and advance the hall to us, in which he was quickly cut down by fire from my rifle. Now outnumbered, one of them, a Rodian, ducked behind the barricade, where he could be heard saying- “We need reinforcements! The rebels are advancing on corridor 2C on route to the detention levels.” “What do you mean you are too preoccupied with the Empire?! Ok, I suppose sentry droids will work….” With the majority of the mercs distracted I signaled to the trooper closest to me to dash out of hiding quickly and fire. He nodded and pulled out a thermal detonator, intending to get rid of the barricade once and for all. We both ran out about ten feet in front of the barricade and shot the remaining mercs into cover. When they popped up again, I provided cover fire for my companion while he pushed the trigger on a thermal detonator and threw it, causing a small explosion that took out the last of the mercenaries. Only a whole palace left to go…… [-Closing personal logs……RYN……complete-]
  21. Coruscant 3 ABY - Far far away under the skycrapers...kilometers under the fifty level zone and the moisted 0 level, a rebel commando is carefully heading in the sewers... : Just a Shadow Barnacle in sight... : What does the scanner show ? : ( megabluck !! Low battery !! What a bloody badger I am, I forgot to charge it !) Errr... nothing really impressive lieutnant, a shadow barnacle and a throng of stone mites at our 12 causing a lot of electrical blur. : Sutter ! Out of this crap ! We're not in the swimming pool ! : Aye aye sir ! : Any traces of black sun's grunts ?? : (Damned, out of battery... now it's useful as a curling tongs) Errr.. no no, just a Dianoga, right in front of Alvarez, 21 meters. A lesser one, just 4 meters... but the scanner is now jammed ! : Check it Alvarez ! We're blind ! Everybody should be twice as aware. : All right, locked. I confirm a lesser one : no danger. : Fine, carry on ! ***** Just a sewer corner away... Black sun grunt's leader : Get set guys ! Here comes the first targets, with our giant blind snake, and the stone mites there must be enough interfering waves to jam their scanners. This entry for Black Sun C&C welcome
  22. Somewhere in the Coruscant Sewers... Patrol Six to command, do you read me? Over. Command to Patrol Six, we read you. Over. Affirmative. We found the access ladder to Xizor's palace, but it's crawling with Black Sun. We can also confirm Pathfinder reports of Imperial presence in the sewers, judging by the looks of this poor fellow. Over. Affirmative Patrol Six. Do not engage, we are dispatching reinforcements to your location, over. Hey, did you hear that? Let's check it out. Oi! We've got company! **pewpewpew** Man down! Man down! **pewpewpew** Come in Patrol Six! What's going on down there! Come in Patrol Six! Patrol Six...?
  23. Ep1 After a small time spent with patrolling and exercises all over again, we finally got an order. Most of the available troops were sent to Coruscant for a secret mission. We had not too much information about it, but we will be some sort of backup. When we arrived the main forces are already started the operation. They sent me to a team led by a shock trooper. I didn't know anything about our objective yet. I met them at one of the smaller entry doors of palace. Shock Trooper - I'm ST-0513 and I lead this small team. Our objective is to protect this Entry Door and secure to escape. We must stop any Black Sun mercs, but we must try not to kill any rebel terrorist and we didn't get permission to open fire first. Understood? Team - Yes Sir! Shock Trooper - Good. And now we moving in. One of the troopers moved to the controlling panel of the door. He entered the code number into the red display of the console and the door opened immediately. They all went in on it and it closed back. There has been nothing for a while and they just waited there. Then suddenly they heard steps approaching fast. Shock Trooper - Get ready, quietly and don't forget not to shoot first! Shock Trooper - Stop, don't Move! Put down the weapons and we don't hurt you! The door slides... And the leader of the group collapsed. Some Black Sun members arrived and they opened the door from outside and fired a shot. Then everybody opened the fire for the gang members. TG-0222 and the other two stormtrooper trying to get cover, but one of them got a shot in the back. The Imperial and Rebel troops Together were stronger and shortly they defeated all the mercs. TG-0222 - You should leave, hurry! Rebel - Thanks. Everybody go! Stormtrooper - Where are the rebels? TG-0222 - They were more than us, we couldn't stop them. End.
  24. I was surprised to hear an all call for combat ships from the Black Sun syndicate. Jobs from them have been rather scarce lately, but this was good money and I really needed it. My ship, Zealot 4, had had a rough go of it since my injury on Commenor. To make ends meet I have had to resort to selling off nonessential systems and skimping on cosmetic repairs. After everything the old girl can still do some damage. And I'm going to collect some creds and make it up to her tonight. Notes: if it's not obvious, this is my bounty hunter's ship that Lucas designed as a micro build a few freebuilds back. I'll try to get some links embedded tonight if I can get back to my computer
  25. So - wanna join Black Sun, eh? Ya probably heard some stories 'bout big, bad, Black Sun gangsters - lotsa stories, most true. Especially ones 'bout what happens to folk who cross us.. S'ok though; if you a hard worker - know how to keep mouth shut, an' don't mind gettin' hands dirty, we gotta place for you ... Building for Black Sun For our 15th Shadows of Nar Eurbrikka (SoNE) episode, we're inviting members of other Eurobricks RPGs (and any other folks who are interested) to build on behalf of Black Sun. This thread will serve as a sign-up thread for anyone who is interested, as well as providing some background information about Black Sun and the SoNE game. For more information about SoNE, check out the introduction thread here. About Black Sun Black Sun is a powerful, galaxy-spanning crime syndicate led by the ruthless and cunning Prince Xizor. To quote Wookieepedia, "[Black Sun] was involved in every known type of illegal activity; its information networks surpassed even the accuracy and scope of Imperial Intelligence. The resources available to Black Sun rivaled those belonging to a large planetary army, including foot soldiers." Not everyone who works for Black Sun is a villain (although plenty of them are); other are simply mercenaries and soldiers of fortune, looking to make a living on the fringes of the galaxy. Still others, working for one of Black Sun's many "legitimate" business fronts, aren't aware of who their true bosses are. Minifigs / character design Black Sun doesn't have uniforms or a dress code, so builders have a lot of leeway when it comes to choosing their minifigure(s). Just to give you some ideas, here are a few "crowd shots" from earlier SoNE entries: Builders can use either 'yellow' or 'fleshie' heads for their characters. Story Timeline/Background Our Shadows of Nar Eurbrikka RPG takes place between Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, with episodes loosely following events/plot points from the Shadows of the Empire book / game. This particular episode parallels the last few levels of the Shadows of the Empire video game. Black Sun builders are free to show their characters fighting either Imperial or Rebel forces, or just patrolling / searching for intruders if they don't feel like building a battle scene. Signing up If you'd like to build for Black Sun, reply to this thread and you'll be added to the Black Sun PM (as soon as it's launched). Make sure you also read the Episode XV topic for contest rules and objectives, and if you have any questions feel free to ask!
