    [H19 - Skye - TT] Pandemonium Unleashed

    *Your entry has earned 11 XP* Personal message from Grand Prince Serion to select commanders of the Imperial Triumvirate: “The time has come! Commanders, We summon you to witness the maiden voyage and first weapons test of our magnificent vessel, the ISD Pandemonium! We would like you to be our guests at a ceremony that will make this vessel operational. Our target is a remote planet in the Marat system. The indiginous winged pests of Marat V, known as the S’kytri, have violated our treaty. They could expose our plans and must be dealt with. These are your orders: Assemble in orbit above Marat V, witness the majesty of Pandemonium, and await your orders!” Some time after above Marat V Lt. Traum: Sir! We’re orbiting the planet Marat V, and have successfully disrupted all communication offworld. We have an incoming transmission from the capital. Most life forms are concentrated around the capital region. Targeting the capital region now. All commanders have arrived in orbit, and are standing by. Grand Prince Serion: Excellent! Continue with the operation. You may fire when ready. /// Enough with the niceties...

The Locals call them LUXUM. Powerful crystals, much stronger than we first thought. The results of first experiments look very promising. It seems they are created by immense pressure, lasting for up to hundred years. In accordance with your orders: we've occupied the affected area. Lake Naath and its surrounding land is now under Imperial Jurisdiction. Imperial Code 94364. The "redistribution" of its residents and the establishment of labor camps are in full swing. Camp 1 and 3 to 5 are set up and ready for use. Camp 2 and 6 should be ready by the next rotation. But I have to tell you, Ambria is far more hostile than we first tought. More and more troopers lose their lives to the dangerous fauna. And there is something else. The workers are talking about a strange feeling they get, when they are near Lake Natth. Like if something is watching them. Some evem refuse to continue working. I ordered immediate action against such behavior. I don't know if and how this reduce the efficient of operation. We have already lost precious time. But I assure you, sir, we will be successful. This operation is far too important to fail. Long live the Triumvirate.

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...

  7. Shortcuts Core RulesFactions/Member SkillsThe MapOther details Welcome! Welcome to Factions. A home for MOCs from all eras of Star Wars loosely tied together by a map-based strategy game. The game itself takes place after the battle of Jakku, but builds can represent any planet in any era of Star Wars.       The goal of the strategy game is to find and control Holocrons. They are revealed by exploring planets and winning challenges.  There are many different factions you can petition to join. Being a part of a faction allows you to participate in 'episodes' (challenges), build freebuilds to earn in-game XP, tags, and other rewards, as well as other aspects of the game. You'll have a main character in-game, and through your building, you can advance your character and help your faction win. Getting Started Private Message (PM) a faction leader to ask to join their faction. Each faction has it's own style, storyline, and aesthetic, so you'll need to create a character in line with whatever faction you petition to join. Faction description, requirements, and contact info can be found in each faction's post at the top of the Factions subforum. You may only create one character, even if you change factions; make it a good one with a flexible storyline. Create your character, upload a 100x100 picture to your preferred image host, and fill out the Character Creator form. You can choose any name for your character but please keep it appropriate. Players may change factions at any time, but faction leaders do not have to accept new recruits. Alternatively, when builders have earned 75 XP they can create their own faction.

    Faction: Clan Eldar (CE)

    "Brothers and Sisters; "We're done hiding. "Some say the galaxy doesn't need us any more; that the Empire did everyone a favour with its conquest of Mandalore. They say that a warrior culture has no place in a galaxy that's had enough of war. "But I say this; there will always be a place among the stars for those who are willing to fight for it. Those who aren't prepared to let someone else deny their right to exist. "So if you've got the guts to wear the armour, I say you've earned the right to be a Mandalorian. It doesn't matter who you are; where you came from; born or made. If you're willing to stand against the storm with your head held high, Clan Eldar will stand beside you." Faction: Clan Eldar (Mandalorian Remnant) Faction Leader: @Ross Fisher Faction Lieutenants: @n1majneb, @Miscellanabuilds, @JetBricks Studios, @Simulterious Members: @Merc4Hire, @SodorBricks, @Lamborghini Waffle Sauce, @jhaelego, @JShortForJay, @PandaQuil, @Moppo,@_Josh_, @Sharkbrix, @Scorch93, @Professor Thaum, @oh whale, @Darkspear, @legofro_productions Headquarters/Capital: Mandalore (O7) Planets: Mandalore and Concordia, Ordo (O7), Lantilles, Gizer, Azure (P8), Kashyyyk (P9), Gigor, Ziost (R4), Atchorb, Bonadan, Kir (S3) Grid squares: P8, S3 NPCs: Duchess Val Eldar, Rusty Eldar Description During the Great Purge, many Mandalorian families and clans were entirely wiped out. Some members of Clan Eldar were fortunate enough to escape by fleeing their homes - a hard act for any Mandalorian. These disparate groups managed to keep in touch and, now that the Empire has fallen, are tentatively making contact again. Soldiers Clan Eldar consisted of Mandalorian warriors that donned Mandalorian armour with black, dark green, and orange color. Nonetheless, Members of Clan Eldar, and their allies, wear a wide range of different-coloured armour, and some wear no armour at all. Times have not been kind to the Clan, and many new members still need to earn their armour. Clan Eldar does not expect its members to follow The Way. Removal of your helmet does not make you any less Mandalorian. Giving up does.

    Faction: The Triumvirate

    The Imperial Triumvirate Faction: The Triumvirate (Union of Imperial Remnants) Faction Leader: Darth Bjorn Faction Moffs: Gubi0222, marvelBoy123, ARKUM ELO, Brickwolf Headquarters/Capital: The Imperial Super Star Destroyer Resurrector (temporary) Planets: Daalang, Nanth'ri, Nixor, Molavar, Scarif, Rishi, Hosnian Prime, Byblos, Exodeen, Deysum, Fedalle, Castell, Byss, Fondor, Iphigin, Ghorman, Andara, Zeltros, Affa, Botor, Ota, Uogo'cor, Kalist VI, Devaron, Quarzite, Marat V (Skye), Odik II, Ambria, Lipsec, Sneeve, Gorse, Virgillia 7, Endor, Kuat Sectors: The Daalang Sector, The Eclorar Sector, The Abrion Sector Grid: Q12, S15, M12, L13, M13, H19, K11, Q10, O10 Description In order to ensure our security and continued stability, the Imperial Remnants of a hundred worlds will unify under the Imperial Triumvirate! For a safe and secure society. Honoring the true imperial legacy, rising from the ashes, Tempered, Stronger, Reborn! - Supreme Moff Barthol The Triumvirate is an alliance of several imperial remnants all united under one banner. Loyal to the legacy of the emperor, and firm believers of restoring the empire to its former glory. Some remnants remain more independent than others, but all acknowledge and support the Triumvirs and regard the three as emissaries of the Emperor’s will. The Triumvirs The Triumvirs are the supreme authority in the Imperial Triumvirate. In some cases a triumvir has direct control of a specific department. The triumvirs each have their own agenda, but work towards the shared goal of an empire reborn. From left to right: The Crimson Duchess: The Crimson Duchess is the ruler of the mysterious Crim Dominion. Her mother also held the Crimson Duchess-title which seems to be handed down from mother to daughter, dating back generations. Rumor has it that the late emperor held the previous Duchess and the Crim Dominion in high regard. This could be the explanation for the deep imperial loyalty and military might of a relatively small system. Supreme Moff Barthol: A battle hardened war veteran who served the old Republic as a naval officer, and later the Galactic Empire as a highly decorated admiral and moff. Moff Barthol was personally appointed by the Emperor, to lead a highly secret mission into the Unknown Regions. Moff Barthol spent more than a decade in the unknown regions, only to return to an empire in disarray. Grand Prince Serion: Prince Serion was a former ISB Admiral and aristocrat hailing from Nacronis. In the final days of the Galactic Empire, Prince Serion played an integral part in Operation Cinder and the downfall of his homeworld Nacronis. Immediately after the destruction of Nacronis, Prince Serion staged a coup against two other unsuspecting admirals, and assumed control of their fleets, as well as the ground forces that had been stationed on Nacronis. The Prince quickly left the Nacronis system to avoid the New Republic, and made the rendezvous with Moff Barthol. Prince Serion ironically named his new army the Nacronis Protectorate. High Command The current High Command consists of nine commanders each responsible for a branch of the Imperial Triumvirate (e.g. politics, commerce, military). The high command only answers to the Triumvirs and together with the triumvirs, they are the ruling council of the Imperial Triumvirate. From left to right: Grand General, Warlord Ral Hathe: Chief of the Army Unknown Moff Iax Draenar: Regional Governor of Core Territories @Gubi0222 Director Rovv: Director of Security (ISB) Unknown Unknown Moff Pantoloc: Regional Governor of Outer Rim Territories Unknown Admiral Gable Karius: Head of Inquisition @marvelBoy123 Retired members of High Command: Grand Admiral Bryce (Detained, awaiting processing) Admiral Gull (Detained, awaiting processing) Grand Moff Jarl (Detained, awaiting processing) Grand Moff Huron (Detained, awaiting processing) Admiral Harr Sinier (Imprisoned, awaiting processing) Admiral Vori (Presumed dead) Officers: The Imperial Triumvirate is a large union of many different branches, departments, and agencies. Natural leaders, disciplined officers, and ambitious commanders are needed, in order to steer the union towards the shared goal of returning the empire to its former glory. You could find yourself among the senior commanders of the Imperial Triumvirate, leading the expansion to new parts of the galaxy, reclaiming former imperial worlds, or planning future covert military or diplomatic operations. Special Forces Units: The Imperial Triumvirate utilizes a wide variety of special forces and commando units. Although most of these units are continuations of existing branches of imperial forces (such as Storm Commandos, Special Forces, and Death Troopers), more specialized and unique special forces have been established since the union of Imperial remnants under the Imperial Triumvirate banner. You could find yourself among one of these new specialized squads, or you could be an Imperial Super Commando, Inquisitor, Imperial Hunter, or a Special Agent working as a lone wolf on highly classified missions. Stormtroopers: Although against New Republic sanctions on imperial military, the Triumvirate is secretly training new troops for the Stormtrooper Corps. You might be a veteran stormtrooper re-deployed to a young squad or one of the many specialist troopers like scout troopers or patrol troopers. The Army: The basic infantry of the imperial Triumvirate. You may find yourself among these grunts, recruited from young conscripts and volunteers, eager to serve the new regime that has united their worlds and brought stability in a time of uncertainty. These soldiers travel across the galaxy on expeditionary missions, spearheading the expansion of the Triumvirate. The Navy: In the fleet of the Triumvirate, you could find yourself among the naval troops, fighter or shuttle pilots, or even commandeering a star destroyer. The fleet is an integral part of of the Triumvirate dominion, and Star Destroyers often serve as base of operation. Ancillary Branches: The imperial Triumvirate is a well-oiled regime, you may find yourself among the supporting personnel that keeps the wheels turning. The Triumvirate ancillary branch includes engineers, researchers, and logistics personnel. Recruits of the Imperial Triumvirate HOW DO I JOIN? Send a PM to the faction leader Darth Bjorn, explaining why you wish to join the Imperial Triumvirate! Sign up now! The empire needs you! WHAT SHOULD MY BUILDS LOOK LIKE? As a faction rising from the remnants of the Galactic Empire and building on the same values, you should aim for a style that resembles imperial architecture, starships, crafts and equipment - like imperial garrison bases, imperial star destroyers or even AT-ATs and AT-STs. These could be heavily modified and improved since they might be salvaged or repurposed. Member of the Imperial Triumvirate should proudly display their allegiance to the faction. This can be done by adding small details as Triumvirate banners soaring above your moc, or your troopers wearing the custom pauldrons with the Imperial Triumvirate signet. In the grey bar below below you'll finde an overview of all the creative assets ready for printing to use in your mocs. WHERE CAN I BUILD? The Imperial Triumvirate is constantly expanding its territory. Below you will find a map of sectors, systems and hyperlandes 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 IPs for your faction. In order to further the faction's territory, all members of the Imperial Triumvirate is encouraged to earn IPs for the faction. Members of the Imperial Triumvirate can build in any system, where the faction has control or a presence (green and yellow systems). Members can also build on any system along the green hyperlanes and green sectors. Power, Strength, Loyalty! Enlist today! You can sign up for the Triumvirate in this thread!
  10. *Your entry has earned 3 XP* OK, I lied about next MOC has a story. But this isn't really a full MOC. It is more a one-day-speed-MOC. So it doesn't count. (But it of course counts for XP and IP). I think everyone can see, where I got the idea from. The best Star Wars Game since Lego Star Wars: The complete saga: Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. A Ship Cutter cuts an old Imperial ship above the planet Kuat, so that its material can be reused for a more peaceful cause. Greetings
  11. *Your entry has earned 21 XP* Excerpt from Cdr. Bannon’s log: Since I was already in the system, high command tasked me with a covert operation on the planet Gorse. The mission was to infiltrate a New Republic thorilide refinery, and plant a transmitter spike for future operations. This was usually a mission for a small crew like Reaper Squad, but ever since Nadiri, and Rae Sloane’s strike on Gorse, New Republic security has tightened. This meant I was to spearhead a diversion, disguised as a diplomatic mediator between Zeltron suppliers and the refinery boss, while Reaper Squad and a stormtrooper platoon from the 88th infiltrated the installation. Cdr. Bannon: Greetings Dr. Sihlbar. I’m here to deliver a message from Minister Freyi An’zeli. The two New Republic security officers flinched as Cdr. Bannon held out a small holoprojector, and a beautiful (by humanoid standards) flickering figure came to life mid-air… Minister Freyi: Dr.! I will dispense of the pleasantries and get straight to business. For too long have you and your new government exploited the hospitality of Zeltron. We will block all baradium shipments rerouted from the Zel system until you agree to Cdr. Bannon’s terms… The Zeltron paused for a moment... Minister Freyi: Should you choose not to agree, Zeltron will turn to the aid of the Imperial Triumvirate! The Mon Calamari Dr. looked from side to side, blinking a few times before muttering… Dr. Sihlbar: Tshis es non negoseable? Tshe New Rebublic does not answer to imperial threatsh. A transmission crackled through to Cdr. Bannon’s hidden ear-pierce… Lt. Sin Veruna: Commander. I’m in position. Ready to take out the scum on your signal! ' Cdr. Bannon turned his attention to the Mon Calamari... Cdr. Bannon: You can kiss your Baradium supply goodbye. Lt. Delp Wep: Not s-so hasty. A renegotiation of the agreement with Zeltron sh-should take place with the Gorse refinery administration, not with the refineries directly. I suggest you make an appointment with the board. We can escort you to the administration building. Cdr. Bannon: That won’t be necessary! The Commander nodded, and the low muffled sound of two silent sniper bolts - PZZHAM - BZZHAMM - is drowned out by the mechanical hum of the refinery... Some moments before on top of platform nine... Lt. Fell Vreach: Fell here! Had to put a runner down. I have another engineer top-side. He’s quiet for now. Meanwhile on the basin walkway... Maj. Raath Hagar: This is Raath. We’ve unlocked the back entrance. We’ll enter the installation from here and from the sewer drains below. And below in the basin... Srg. Wellen (TK-6382): Quiet! Get into the drain quickly, but keep it down! We have live ones at the basin. /// Man this build took some time, and it was testing me at times. It may seem a bit messy with all the characters, but I wanted to exploit all the possible scenes in the build... Also this build served as a proving ground for some techniques I want to incorporate in future builds... I hope you enjoy it, and as always I'd love to hear your honest feedback! Below you'll find some behind-the-scenes shots:

    [O9 - Onderon and Dxun - CE] The Commandeering

    *Your entry has earned 3 XP* https://www.instagram.com/p/CKpJVZjp8Y4/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link It had been only a couple of days since Pyerce's trap killed Eencar and the rest of my team. I finally came to terms with what had happened, grief filling my being. From my understanding, Pyerce was found and captured. But it didn't matter to me. They got to him before I could. Pyerce was only a pawn to the Empire, however. I wouldn't stop until the galaxy was rid of that scum. A couple days later, I received a transmission: Imperials were leaving Onderon with ships full of Beskar. A strike team was being sent to take it back. We were teaming up with Confederacy of Free Systems. We would get the Beskar, they would get the fleet. ________________________________ The leader of Clan Elder told us the plan. "We are to intercept the fleet mid-way," he explained. "Our ships will drop us off on top of theirs, then trail behind, taking down any fighters as necessary. Our 'ground' team will take different sections of the hull and cut into it. The Confederacy has some Jedi. They, as well as one of our own, will use their lightsabers to do so. Aim for cargo hulls. The Beskar crates inside will be sucked into space for our ships to pick up. If we fail to take the ships, at least we'll still get our Beskar back- even if we take the path of the ancestors and join them as martyrs. Let's kick some Imperial plastoid backsides. Break." _______________________________ As we jumped into hyperspace, I glanced to my left. The Confederate wore a Dark Blue jacket with a symbol I had seen many times on paintings of our ancestors- the symbol of the Jedi Order, enemies. "I never thought I would fight side by side with a Jedi," I growled. He smiled. I could see the years behind the eyes. Sorrow, pain, yet acceptance. He's been through a lot... he was like me. "How about side by side with a friend?" He extended his hand. I took it. "How about acquaintances?" "I'll settle," he said. The comms blared on. "Suit up people," said the pilot. "We're approaching the coordinates. Remember, these regulators will only last 15 minutes, so don't start them up until necessary." I slipped on a pair of mag boots, harnessed my jetpack to my back, and loaded explosive shells into my DC-17m. We stood in silence for several minutes. the air reeked of anxiety, stifling our lungs and forcing us to hold or breathes in anticipation. "Regulators on.," the pilot said over comms. "Opening rear hatch in 3...2..1.." he said a minute later. "Go get em boys." _______________________________ I had never been in space before. As soon as the hatch opened, we were all sucked into the void. It was cold, however our suits thankfully kept us from death. As we started to slow down, we initiated our jetpacks towards the Gozanti. Approaching the left wing, we turned on mag boots. We were making our way to the cargo hull when tie fighters started to come at as. I found it odd- their signature noise couldn't be heard. Then I realized that others were yelling at me, but no noise. I quickly turned on my comms. "Now might be a good time to use your blaster," said the Jedi. "Now might be a good time to use your magic hands," I replied. He hesitated. I didn't have time to think about it however. I aimed, launching a shell at the closest tie fighter. It missed. I got used to accounting for gravity, and now the lack of it was throwing my shots. I cursed. I shot again, this time barely missing. I launched one more shot as the TIE made a sweeping run. Blasts shot towards us, and I panicked. Thankfully, this one hit., blowing up its right wing. It caused the fighter to veer, crashing into the Gozanti not too far from us. Two more were still coming, however. As I lifted my blaster, a slew of bolts came at us. The Jedi had ignited his lightsaber, deflecting bolts back at the ships. One of them hit home, bringing the second ship down. However, a bolt from the third hit me square in the chest. I was knocked backwards, my mag boots ripped from the ship. I panicked for a moment, but collected my self. Using my jetpack, I was able to anchor myself to the ship again. "Here's the hull," one of the others shouted over the comms. The Jedi started cutting through with his lightsaber. Then an explosion erupted nearby "Bombers!" resounded from multiple people over the comms, mixed with a couple of 'Dank Ferrick's. I tried to use my blaster, but it jammed up. I would have to trust the rest of the team. I looked towards the Jedi. He was halfway done with cutting a hole. I noticed that his jetpack was damaged, beyond use. I hesitated. My jetpack still had it's missile in it. Should I use it and then give him the pack? I discarded the thought- it might come in handy for him. "Your not going to get anywhere with that thing" I growled over comms. Confusion. I rolled my eyes. "Jedi... guy..." He turned. I took off my jetpack handing it to him. "We're about to get in here. I wouldn't need it for long," he said. "You could always find other strike forces and get them into the ship." He contemplated this. "You have a point." He took it, putting it on. A blast of light appeared on my right. Turns out the faith in my team was well placed. They had taken out the bombers. "Stand clear." The Jedi finished the opening, and our strike force hurried as fast as possible away from the hole as crates and on board personnel were sucked into the void. After we were certain it was empty, we started to drop into the ship. I was near the back. As the line thinned, I noticed and incoming bomber. "Get in!" I growled over comms. I activated my range finder and bent down to launch my missile. Nothing. Then I remembered. I didn't have my jetpack. An explosion ripped in front of me, destroying the piece of metal I stood on. I spiraled out into space, black and grey blurs appearing. I started sweating. I tried to use my comms, but it was damaged- my whole suit was malfunctioning. I reached down and turned off my mag boots, freeing me from the shrapnel. The movement stopped my acceleration, and now I was slowly continuing to summersault through the void. I could see the bomber going for a second strike team. It looked like they didn't know of it's presence. I didn't have much time. My blaster was still at my side. I grabbed it, hurriedly trying to get it unjammed. It fell free off my hands, and was slowly floating away. I reached, barely touching the tip. I tried thrusting my body to gain momentum. It worked. I grabbed the blaster, and as I tried to get it unjammed, the bomber hit it's targets. And entire strike force was eliminated. The bomber continued its run for another group. Click The gun was unjammed. I aimed carefully, precisely, leading the shot. As the recoil knocked me farther into the void, I saw a small explosion- I had hit. I continued to float, the ships becoming smaller and smaller. My head started to throb. My regulator was almost out of life. I was going to die out here, out in the bleak void. No one would hear my final cries. No one would find my body and lay me with my ancestors. My armor would never make it's way to my children. My kids.... My mind went black, and I embraced the cold hand of death.
  13. *Your entry has earned 8 XP* Excerpt from Director Hollon’s log: Before leaving Virgillia 7, I had one last stop to make. My so-called friend, a high ranking member of the VFA leadership, had agreed to meet outside Zeta Compound. This could be very interesting… General Gilror: Director! You are not welcome here! The Empire is dead! In the last 48 hours, we have neutralised three of your recon squads, and I’ve just been informed that a shuttle has crash landed in the southern region! We are mobilizing a full blockade of the planet, and we will eliminate any imperials trying to enter this system. The general pauses and lowers his voice... General Gilror: I will let you go, but I have certain conditions! Captain Kirdef: Sir! That’s against VFA law! Any imperials must stand trial before… The captain is cut off by the general... General Gilror: Don’t lecture me on the law I helped make! Director! We have several of your men in custody awaiting execution. General Gilror: If you agree to these conditions, and leave this system, we will set your men free. Director Hollon: General. You have my word. We will withdraw from this system immediately. Director Hollon takes the data pad, turns around, and walks away… Director Hollon: Prepare my shuttle for departure! DT-F36: Yes Sir! /// A small little build to tie some storylines together... In canon, the Virgillian Free Alignment (https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Virgillian_Free_Alignment) is a strong supporter of the New Republic, so in order to be true to canon, and that Virgillia is able to support the Resistance in the future, the Imperial Triumvirate influence on the system is not military might, but rather deep undercover agents in the VFA... Stay tuned...
  14. *Your entry has earned 60 XP* Our missions on Ambria and Dathomir were a bit too exciting for my liking, although they had earned me a promotion and a trust very valuable to me. Our next mission would be to secure the moon of Endor, where that fateful battle, in which we lost so many, was fought. It was about time we had our revenge, and as the NR rangers suspect shady business going on throughout the galaxy, the core is conveniently in denial of our ever-growing presence. We must be patient. Our time will come. The time when we have amassed enough resources to complete our ultimate mission. The final mission… As DT-R65 walks out of the lambda class shuttle, the moist air condenses on his visors, bringing him back to when he first fought here. The objective? Acquire weapons stored since before the first battle of Endor and advise the mobilization of troops to exterminate the local fauna. It seems smugglers and bounty hunter scum had already claimed the weapons cache, and were now selling weapons to both NR and Triumvirate forces. A reminder of the accelerating chaos growing in the galaxy with the New republic regime… Lieutenant Conwick, operating number ISB-098, is in charge of one of the platoons stationed here. As we make our way towards the received coordinates fallen troopers lay scattered, impaled and beaten. Helmets pierced by pikes decorate this savage combat zone. The fauna was more intelligent than anticipated, and was quick to adapt. We do however have one advantage; brute force. Conwick approaches on an AT-RT. Haven’t seen one of those in ages… In front of him stands the presumed weapons dealer, a Duros. A Pyke stands beside him, a bounty hunter by the looks of him, no doubt connected to the syndicate. They wear imperial armor, a mockery of the uniform… Their pit droids drop off the crate filled with high standard mandalorian weapons. They will serve the empire most effectively… Lieutenant Conwick -Moff Kurath, we are honored by your presence. Moff Kurath (DT-R65) -I see your efforts here have yet to be proven… Your platoon has taken some losses. Lieutenant Conwick With all your experience in special operations, we will wipe out the remaining obstacles. Especially with the reinforcements you have dispatched. A squad of heavily equipped shock troopers march to meet the challenge. The beasts native to this moon will be burned, just like the rest of those who oppose us... AT-RT design by Inthert. Swamp speeder design by 8thbrotherbrick. AT-DT is of my own design, inspired by Sean Drews and concept art. There are 5 ewoks hiding in this MOC, can you spot them?
  15. *Your entry has earned 12 XP* Friends of droids, clankers and CIS: Please look away! There is it. * PEW PEW * Got it! And there it goes. Excellent shot, Gecko! Let's return to base. Drinks on you. What?! Wait, wait, wait, I didn't agree to it. Not my problem. You shot the droid, you have to pay for it. Those are the rules, we all agreed on. I am not entirely happy, how the MOC turned out. One of those builds, where the idea is better than the finished build. I first tried my luck with half an ARC-170, but I had the same problem as my comrade @Simulterious with his crashed TIE. The only difference he decided to stick with his plans. But I changed fighters: to a good old Vulture Droid. One of the best things to come out Episode I (with its counterpart the Naboo Fighter). I m happy over feedback. (The photo isn't the best, I know. My camera has given up, in the middle of the shot. So, not good) The next MOC(s) will have some more story. Or just a story. I can't really say, that my MOCs are story-driven. So there's that. So don't despair, I have plans. Greetings from the Empire
  16. *Your entry has earned 36 XP* Interlude: Even though the outlaw regime patrolled the entire system, we had managed to land three ground reconnaissance squads. After losing contact with our last squad, it was clear that the Virgillians were alerted to our presence. In a last effort to salvage whatever intel our squads had intercepted, we sent in one of our best ISB officers. Director Hollon and his guard squadron quickly located the downed AT-ST, in the rocky flats near Vladamar’s Ridge. DT-F36: Director, no bodies on site. Director Hollon: Mmh… Casualties on both sides... Check the walkers comms log. I want to know if they took any prisoners... Looks like the outlaws have the same taste in military ordnance, as the rebel scum we fought on Sullust… DT-F36: Patching into the comms log now. *btzzzh-klitczzzzz-dzzeeee* DT-F36: Rerouting logs to your datapad Director. Director Hollon: Good! I'll have a closer look later. Prepare the shuttle! I want to visit an old friend before we leave this rock… /// Damn, wrecks are hard... Let me know what you think...

  18. *Your entry has earned 9 XP* Onboard the Imperal Super Star Destroyer, The Resurrector - Conference Room Several Imperial senators and commanders stand around a black conference table. Imperial stormtroopers stand guard around the room. Senator Vancar, a hip slimy-looking Senator, is speaking. Senator Vancar: Until the traitors are dealt with we are vulnerable. The New Republic is getting information from high ranking members of the Imperial Triumvirate. They’re a bigger threat than you realize. Even the Mandalorians see this as their moment to retaliate! The bitter Moff Pantoloc shifts nervously. Moff Pantoloc: Dangerous to your trade agreements, Senator, not to the Imperial Triumvirate! Senator Vancar: The New Republic will continue to close in on our activities until… ' Suddenly all heads turn as Senator Vancar’s speech is cut short and the Supreme Moff Barthol, one of the Triumvirs, enters. He is followed by two Royal Guards. All of the commanders stand and bow before the old, evil-looking moff as he takes his place at the center of the room. The Royal Guards stand behind him. Supreme Moff Barthol: The traitors have been dealt with, and the New Republic will no longer be of any concern to us. From now on our operations will be run decentralized, from each Imperial Remnant in the united Imperial Triumvirate. The New Republic does not have the resources to monitor Imperial activities from the Core to the Outer Rim. Moff Pantoloc: That's impossible! How will we maintain control without a centralized command. Supreme Moff Barthol: Regional commanders now have direct control of Imperial operations in their territory. These commanders will operate independently, with the directive of the Triumvirs, and High Command. Senator Vancar: And what of the traitors? If the Republic has obtained knowledge of our plans, it is possible, however unlikely, that they might introduce additional sanctions against imperial activities. Grand Prince Serion: If your real concern is vacancies in High Command, I assure you they will be filled! Tell me senator; When have sanctions ever stopped us? Supreme Moff Barthol: Enough! This is not a committee! The Supreme Moff flicks a button on the table console, and a holographic chart appears mid-air. Supreme Moff Barthol: With this reorganization we will initiate three new directives that will keep the New Republic incapacitated. We want them to stay vigilant towards carefully chosen activities, in order to draw their gaze away from others. We will focus our efforts and resources on the three directives: Operation Nightwing, Operation Thorn, and Operation Resurrection! These are the supreme directives, and take priority over all other operations. These directives are all working toward restoring the Glory of the Empire! Grand Prince Serion: For security reasons, we will brief each commander of their involvement separately. You will each receive a droid carrying your directive details. Commander Bannon, and Administrator Goren, please stay. The rest of you are dismissed! To be continued… /// I've had this one in the works for some time... I still want to do an Imperial Conference room like the one from ANH, but this one was especially inspired by the concept art below... I really like flags and banners, so this was a perfect setting for displaying a couple... Also the black table I'm really happy about... Check out more photos below:
  19. A parade at Entralla was hosted to honor a new General of Pentastar. His name is Damien Varos, let's hope this name brings great renown to the imperial army of Pentastar. Discord name: Lapius#4492 Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/vytilo/ Flicker:
  20. 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. 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.

    [U13 - Daluuj - TT] The Yularen

    *Your entry has earned 3 XP* This is Gozanti Cruiser Yularen. We're in position. Starting Operation: Shutdown. IGV-55 surveillance vessel (Gozanti-class) With the defeat at Endor and Jakku, the Empire learned that they are not untouchable. So a small group of loyalists decided to act, so that something like this never happens again. They went befor the Triumvirs and laid out their plans: The establishment of Safe Worlds. Planets of little significance for the galaxy, but which allow the Empire to regroup and reorganize in the event of a overwhelming defeat. The gozanti cruiser IVG 555 Survallince-class „The Yularen“ was send to the backwater planet of Daluuj. A muddy planet in the Outer Rim. The mission: to lock down the system. Every single transmission, every message, imperial and non-imperial, has to go through the watchful eyes of the ISB. So that the New Republic can still believe that Daluuj is still a planet of no interest But under the surface is more. Much more. ---------- Just a small MOC. I build the Gozanti in one day. There you see how fast of a builder I am. (pretty, pretty fast). I always liked the look of the Gozanti. But I builded the MOC also to test my photoshop skills.
  22. *Your entry has earned 8 XP* Whilst Clan Eldar was pursuing threats of Pyerce across Mandalorian space, Torak had quietly despatched Shiva to follow up a lead on Ordo after some noise had been made across a small settlement on the edge of an Oasis. On Shiva's approach, she came across a submerged TIE. An imperial had arrived on planet after all, after investigating the submerged TIE it looked as though it had been abandoned rather than shot down. Perhaps there was truth in the rumour after all, someone must have told the Empire about the old Mandalorian Arsenal on Ordo. Shiva would soon put a stop to this...
  23. *Your entry has earned 26 XP* After we'd uncovered Pyerce's plans, Clan Eldar rushed to the proposed meeting point in Sundari - an old Government palace that had been long commandeered by the Imperial occupation. A once grand building devoted to the Rising Phoenix, it's high platforms looked out above the once great city and would glisten in the sunlight. Little remained of the grandeur of this building, little remained of the grandeur of Mandalore. Atop the building, Pyerce's supporters had gathered the raided Mandalorian artefacts and other valuables to add to the Imperials War Chest. It seems our hunt for Pyerce would be swift today! We flew across the city at speed, ahead of us we could see the Imperials preparing crates ready to be shipped off planet. Without any sign of a transport ship it looked like we had arrived before even more history was lost to the remnants of Empire. I gave the order to attack. In unison the Mandalorians around me took to the air and descended on the platform standing high above the streets below, catching Pyerce's forces completely unaware. The Pyerce loyalists fought hard as they tried to flee from us but were quickly overrun Pyerce and his fiercely loyal supporters had escaped before. We hunted them down this night. We left none alive. After Pyerce's forces had been dealt with, we remained on the tower and looked over the city around us. Clan Eldar would ensure Mandalore remained uncoupled from outside control, the citizens had suffered long enough and we'd seen first hand the devastation the Empire had wrought...

    [O10 - Ambria - TT] Digging Up the Past

    *Your entry has earned 14 XP* Excerpt from Cdr. Bannon’s log: With the ISD Crescendo already stationed in Ambria’s orbit, it made little sense for me to interfere with the Ambria mission. Bravura squad had done a fine job assisting in establishing an imperial outpost on the planet. However, Cpt. Markland had heard rumors of an old imperial installation hidden below the surface of Ambria. Sure enough, hidden in the jagged canyons, a few hundred klicks south of Bravura’s location, Cpt. Markland found an old Imperial mining installation. Her assessment was that the mine holds valuable minerals worth salvaging, and the mine itself could prove valuable if brought back to full operating capacity. In any case, this installation may serve future projects as a base of operation. Lt. Pavall overseeing equipment being offloaded and valuable minerals being removed from the old Imperial Installation. Lt. Pavall: Get a move on, but be careful with the Rhydonium. Worker LS-3444: Be careful, but hurry up! I've heard rumors that these canyons are crawling with monstrous insectoids! Lt. Pavall: Get the Rhydonium inside! We don't want another Jorai Station incident! --- My take on an OC-0GR Imperial Repulsor Sled, inspired by o0ger over on Flickr. /// Working in multiple planes allows for some interesting techniques... Check out some behind the scenes shots below... Let me know what you guys think!
  25. *Your entry has earned 30 XP* “The jedi were the guardians of peace in the galaxy. Oh, how they have fallen… I was alive back then, albeit a very young man, I understood the situation quite well. I knew where I stood. I’ve always known. People say you should be open to new ideas. Well, I was, I saw their point of view, and I said: to hell with it. … I once spoke to the great emperor you know, on multiple occasions. Him and I, we came from the same place, in thought as well. You know, the jedi were almost wiped out in the first battle of geonosis. I wish they had been, would have saved the world all this chaos…” (Death trooper CDR DT-R65 to droid unit IG-828 of the imperial Triumvirate) More pictures on flickr, and timelapse on my YouTube channel
