    Faction: The Imperial Triumvirate (TT)

    The Imperial Triumvirate Faction: The Triumvirate (Union of Imperial Remnants) Faction Leader: Darth Bjorn Faction Moffs: Gubi0222, marvelBoy123, ARKUM ELO, Brickwolf, Simulterious Headquarters/Capital: Kalist VI, and the Imperial Super Star Destroyer Resurrector in orbit. 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, Trigalis, Skynara, Alzoc III Sectors: The Daalang Sector, The Eclorar Sector, The Abrion Sector, Deep Core Security Zone, The Skine 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) Moff Kalypso Delstee: Chief Diplomatic Advisor @Simulterious 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!
  2. Hello everyone! After receiving so many enquiries seeking instructions for my Zeta-class cargo shuttle, I am pleased to announce the release of a professional 768 page instruction manual for purchase. The final piece count is 4418, just surpassing 75159 Death Star. The completed model measures 70 x 56 x 38cm (wings upright). I have put together a package that includes the 768 page pdf instruction manual, parts list and LDD file. All of it is available for 25 British pounds (£25). If you would like to purchase the plans, please either PM me or contact me at renegadelight@googlemail.com. I will have a public parts list uploaded to rebrickable very soon (for simplicity, red coloured pieces can be anything you like, they are not visible from the exterior). I’m sure everyone appreciates the long hours that went into designing both the physical model and step-by-step build. I had a lot of fun putting this one together and hope others will too! The Rebrickable parts list is now live here. Here is the original thread from February 2017 and the Flickr album. I have revised the attachment between the wings and main body, but not been brave enough to motorise it - I'll leave that to someone else to try! Below are a few excerpts from the manual: Please feel free to use this thread to discuss anything about the model design, building steps, part substitutions, etc.

    [MOC] Imperial Facility on Er'Kit 2.0

    Hey guys! Here's a big update of my Imperial Base on Er'Kit. This build is both an extension of my long-planned project and an online collab with my friend Noah (H2Brick). Who motivated me to do this? Well, Noah did, whose part of the collab comes very soon. It's much more vertical than mine, I'm gonna spoil you just this. :D It was so nice to do multiple whatsapp/discord building calls with Noah and give feedback to each other. Hope you like this updated version of the base. I personally see some oversimplified areas that I can improve in the future. Don't worry, I'll work on them. I'm having an exam session now and I was grinding for the past 5 days to get this done. I guess it was worth it! :D BTW. The size of the moc is 2x3 gray 48x48 baseplates now, and will be expanded (again) this year! TIE Fighter by Jerac. AT-ST by Pablo Brickasso. 74-Z Speeder heavily inspired by Luca s projects. Ok, here are some pics: Huge thanks to CTR Bricks for editing the main pic! More detail shots in a Flickr album: And here is the september 2020 edition of the collab: Imperius Unitada Ober Totallex!
  5. *Your entry has earned 25 XP* Excerpt from Cdr. Bannon’s log: After a few weeks of putting out fires, I finally found myself back on Kalist VI. Nothing more than your average desert rock, but it felt good to be on imperial soil again. It was time to initiate the next phase of Operation: Nightwing and brief the different expedition commanders on their destinations and mission. Most of these expeditions were simple reconnaissance missions to potential Imperial outpost worlds. A few of these however, had a much deeper significance to the Imperial Triumvirate… I made it back to Triumvirate headquarters just in time to brief exploration crew Aurek 7 on their primary objectives once arriving on their world… I had high expectations for the crew assembled by Cpt. Markland. Not the elite candidates, of course. The crew had to be selected from expendable personnel. However, the metrics of the 14 crew-members all seemed to fit the mission. From left to right: Lt. Insen: Male human, pilot and security. Cpt. Azela: Female mirialan, security officer. Ltjg. Rud: Male human, pilot and security. Avan Kagz: Male lannik, tracker, and his fire falcon. Horrath Veel: Male zabrak, geologist. Cdr. Drand: Male human, sr. commodore, operating base specialist. Dr. Rutha: Female, human, chief scientist. Dr. Llana: Female pantoran-cyborg, combat surgeon. Lt. Browf: Male duro, structural engineer. H3-VY: Heavy duty droid. Sr. Lt. Bornos: Male human, chief architect. CC-4432 Crank: Human male, mercenary (retired clone trooper). CC-7714 Grim: Human male, ranger (retired clone trooper Sgt.). CT-822 Moss: Human male, tracker (retired clone trooper). A few crew-members getting to know each-other before takeoff... Security, pilots and the last cargo arriving in the hangar... Cdr. Bannon provides the last briefing from High Command, before leaving the mission in the hands of the crew... /// This was a real education in imperial aesthetics - some things I'm hoping to develop more in the future (still have my eyes on that big imperial hangar)...

  7. *Your entry has earned 10 XP* Excerpt from Agent Amus’ log: Our Deep Core Security Sector fleet had captured an exploration vessel on the edge of the unknown regions. The vessel was heading for Duro, and the crew seemed to have a military connection to an independent militia cell of the New Republic. If they were returning from the Unknown Regions they might have intel on worlds valuable to the Imperial Triumvirate. Onboard the ISD Lilith hidden deep within the Osssorck Nebulae… *Agent Amus facing a hologram of Supreme Prince Serion* Agent Amus: Our prisoners do not seem to offer any information voluntarily. It seems we will have to try alternative means of motivation. Prince Serion: Carve it out of them if you must. If any of them are suitable for Operation Resurrection, send them to Dante Station. When you’re done, send their ship into the nearest star. Agent Amus: As you wish, my lord. /// /// A creative take on probing a place where people cannot easily go... The mind...

Sadly, I can't build a full MOC for those sweet figs due to my massive personal project which I'll be revealing soon! Hope this post matches all the guidelines, I was told even a figbarf post can give you both IP and XP (if done on time, obviously). If not, pardon me! I am still bamboozled by how well structured this RPG is! :D ~Jan
  9. *Your entry has earned 14 XP* Excerpt from Cdr. Bannon’s log: My plans of returning to Kalist VI were postponed once more, when we received a distress transmission broadcast on imperial frequencies. Somehow the former Black Sun Vigo, Lord Xarr, had managed to slice into imperial comms. His plea for imperial assistance was not entirely without merit. He had an offer we could not refuse. Aiding the former crime lord, meant a detour to one of the galaxy’s filthiest shadowports. As if the crime-ridden backwater planet wasn’t bad enough, the rendezvous location was the stinky swamp wharf in the slaves district of New Coronet. *The overwhelmingly nauseating smells of fish and flesh for sale made it difficult to concentrate. This was the perfect hiding place for a crime lord who doesn’t want to be found.* Lord Xarr: Commander Bannon. Welcome to Trigalis. Under different circumstances we would be drinking and dining in my estate, but you Imperials have put a stop to my hospitality, and forced me into hiding. Ironic that you have no choice, but to help me out of the mess you’ve caused. Cdr. Bannon: You mistake our interest for urgency. The Imperial Triumvirate has no needs for anything an exiled crime lord has to offer. However, what you are offering has intrigued our intelligence headquarters enough to play along. For now. *Cdr. Bannon pauses, closes his eyes, and refocuses his thoughts* Cdr. Bannon: Admittedly your intel and star chart, is both valuable assets, which is why I have agreed to assist you. On my terms. *The commander looks up and stares at the aging crime lord* Cdr. Bannon: When I leave this rotball I will transmit new coordinates for a safe rendezvous. Send someone you trust. In the meantime you will guarantee that imperial operations on Trigalis will meet no resistance. Lord Xarr: You’re leaving me here?! My safety was part of the deal!!! Cdr. Bannon: We will extract you, when your emissary comes through. *For a few moments, the speechless crime lord gazed into the murky waters. He turned to the commander and nodded. There was nothing else to do...* /// I had a lot of fun with all the little details of this build. I'm really fond of the yellow bird (native to Trigalis), the giant fish in the crane, and the blue glass ball in the net... Let me know what you think! A few additional detailed shots below:

    [H20 - Dosuun - TT] Edge of the Empire

    *Your entry has earned 9 XP* Excerpt from Cdr. Bannon’s log: Before heading back to the core, I had a personal matter to attend to. For some time I wanted to investigate an old lead. A deserted imperial installation and prison compound. Perfect for an operation of my own. However, something didn’t add up. The installation’s import manifest listed prisoners, and regular ordnance, but the cargo pads were filled with kyber crystal containers. More was happening on Dosuun than I had anticipated. For now a full investigation would have to wait. I planned to return to Dosuun when my duties allowed. /// This had been on my to-do list for a loooong time. I look forward to explore this remote backwater planet again. Sometime soon hopefully. Below is another look at the platform:

    [MOC] LEGO Eldorado Fortress, redesigned

    “Governor Broadside spent years at his post in Eldorado Fortress, waiting for the expected assault of his nemesis, Captain Redbeard. In his days as Commodore, Broadside was one of the famous few to have turned back Redbeard’s feared naval bombardments, but the notorious Redbeard has been missing for years without a trace. Promoted to Governor but growing old at his post, Broadside has ensured that his fortress is well prepared for any assault – the larder is stocked, the men are rested, and the cannons are loaded. But lately, passing ships have whispered strange new rumors of Redbeard. Tales of a remote island, a stranded ship, a Captain and crew thirsty for revenge setting sail once again… The Governor may be unaware of the secret treasure hidden beneath Eldorado, but he is certain Redbeard will come for Mary Brickless, prisoner of Eldorado for the past five years. Is Eldorado Fortress prepared for whatever threats may come next? Can Broadside return to his role as Commodore and rid the seas of Redbeard, once and for all? Only you can decide!” Eldorado Fortress Introducing Eldorado Fortress, built from 100% authentic LEGO® bricks and the perfect companion to LEGO’s® new Pirates of Barracuda Bay set! Although LEGO® has released some smaller imperial fortresses in the past, none were truly on the scale of LEGO’s® larger castle playsets. The new Pirates of Barracuda Bay set re-inspired us to create a fortress modelled on Caribbean architecture. As you can see, the fortress is named to play on LEGO’s® original Eldorado Fortress (set #6276). The Governor is named after the “Governor Broadside” that shows up in some older LEGO® literature/manuals. The main model uses 2,581 bricks, and the minifigures and accessories add ~150 parts to that. The model features a watchtower, armory, prison, a secret cave with the hidden treasure of Eldorado, a larder, crew’s quarters, Governor’s room, and a harbor area with defensive cannon emplacements. Our personal favorite feature is the curved wall with three cannons overlooking the water! Everything is modular, allowing easy access to all play features. The prison features an ‘exploding’ wall, the cave is connected via a secret passage with retractable wall to the larder, and a trapdoor connects the larder to the crew’s quarters. More importantly, the set includes five spring-loaded cannons that can be positioned anywhere along the fort walls, allowing for quick defense against raiding pirates!

  13. *Your entry has earned 34 XP* Excerpt from Cdr. Bannon’s log: More was happening on Devaron, than I was led to believe. So naturally that's where my orders took me next. I had dispatched a band of bounty hunters a week earlier, to root out unsanctioned New Republic mercenaries. It seemed the hunt had been successful. Some time later on Devaron, on the outskirts of the city Plaeree… Zan Shysa: Cdr. Bannon! These scum are the only ones we could bring back alive. Djina and I killed another two while engaging the encampment, and another one had to be put down enroute back to the city. Cdr. Bannon: Ah Miss Shysa! You continue to deliver! *Commander Bannon nods to his one of his troopers* Cdr. Bannon: Have the prisoners sent to my ship. I will see to the interrogation personally.

  16. Nuts to the Falcon. The beautiful and graceful Lambda Shuttle has always been my favourite of all the Star Wars ships, and I'm delighted to present my LEGO minifigure-scaled version of this wonder. Didn't you already make one of these, Ru? Yes I did, and well-remembered! It was ten years ago, and a large part of the reason I joined EB in the first place. You can see it here. I revised it a coupe of years later but never publicised the update; you can see it here here (link to flickr folder). I had always intended to go back and tweak the original; however this is a totally new MOC. I started working on it back in 2016, but then we moved house and the LEGO went into storage for a couple of years. front The overall scale of this version is similar to my earlier version, and like the former is based around using the 6x3 vertical windscreen also found in 2015's System-scaled Shuttle Tydirium. The other major factor is the height of the rounded sides of the body: I've used the 4-wide cylinders to give what I think is the best approximation to the real thing. These are attached via a fairly complicated variety of SNOT techniques to a ten plate-high body. Not all the parts are (yet) available in white (the macaroni tiles now are, but not the 4x4 round plates with 2x2 hole), hence the splashes of grey at the sides (or trans-clear in one spot). Starboard The wings are a composite of Technic liftarms and plates. I chose this to keep the weight of the wings down; even built like this I had to work quite hard to prevent the wings flopping down too easily. Some more views: Rear High I've tried quite hard to make this accurate to the movies. There are actually two distinct versions in the movie canon - the sleek ILM model used in the space scenes, and the shorter droopier-nosed version which featured in the Home One hangar scene. The cause of this discrepancy is apparently due to the set designers at Elstree studios in the UK having access only to a few photos of the lambda, but not the ILM model itself thousands of miles away in California. If you are interested, and for a nostalgic reminder of what the Internet looked like in the early naughties, check out Lambda-class Shuttles: the Dimorphism Blooper. I've modelled this one on the ILM studio model. Mostly, I think it is accurate, but I have had to make a few compromises. The cockpit taper - which is only about a stud-width at this scale - is impossible to render without resorting to a solid-black windscreen, and instead is implied by the exaggerated taper of the cockpit sides. The cockpit is a little deeper than the original - required to allow minifigure seating at this scale; the original Kenner toys model did something similar. High close/detail I've take a bit of a guess at the sloping vent-thing under the vertical fin; it is difficult to tell from reference pictures what this is supposed to be. Pressing the silver grille-tile just in front of this operates a latch to allow the body to open. In some places aesthetics wins over accuracy. The bulges on the side of the fuselage should rise to about half-way up the fuselage sides, and should extend back about half-way along the body, but I was so happy with the effect of the mudguard pieces here that I've left them as they are. Detail Front The seven-wide cockpit does not allow a complete set of grille tiles at the front. I may have to resort to a decal on the central tile. The technic skis at the sides would perhaps work better with the pointy-ends at the front but there was no way to attach them that way round (and they could do with being two studs shorter!). There are few canon reference images of the rear. Rather than the usual blanket trans-blue tiles, I have instead tried to show what the engines might look like under the exhaust glow - inspired by this superb render by Thad Clevenger. The vents end up looking a little square; it might be possible to improve this with decals. Rear detail The extremes of the rounded rear end look a bit square, but this is the best solution at this scale, at least until LEGO produces this piece in 2x2. Here's a view from beneath. You can see the taper of cockpit sides, and how the technic skis are a little easy to knock out of position . underside One of the major challenges I faced was attaching the rounded sides of the body SNOT to the studs-up frame. Mostly this is achieved with SNOT brackets, but there was no room for this on the forward sections, which are actually attached via an internal clip. Inside here are two very hard shock absorbers which are intended to encourage the wings to sit in either 'up' or 'down' positions; see here. The smooth sections in the middle are the landing gear doors. An essential feature of any Lambda is that it must be able to fold its wings in order to land. With this, the wing-mounted guns need to fold outwards. I've also included a chin-ramp, though it is hinged a little further back into the body of the ship than on the real thing. Landed front low As you can hopefully see, there is also landing gear, with folding flaps to cover the recesses. It is retractable, as shown below: Landing gear detail The shock-absorber parts act as a kind of suspension when the ship is landed, and provide a spring action when folding to keep the retracted gear in place. It works surprisingly well. Towards the front of the above picture, you can see the cockpit floor is mounted at a half-stud offset, which allows two figures to be seated side-by-side. Having experimented with several ways to allow the cockpit to open, I found that having the nose section slide off provided the best compromise between accessibility and strength. Cockpit interior detail As you can see, the white 4L bars that frame the windscreen are held on by droid arms, and the sloping cockpit sides held in place at the front by 1L bars with claws. It's a bit fiddly to put together. The 1x4 trans tile at the rear unfortunately exposes the asymmetry inherent in any odd stud-width construction; if it were available in trans-black the stud might be better hidden! Access to the inside is easy: the whole top slides off. The red Technic liftarm at the front is a latch to keep the roof in place; it is released by pressing down the metallic silver grille tile. I've also removed a side wall for the photo. Interior I had in mind that this is the shuttle Darth Vader uses to transport Luke from Endor to the Death Star II. It is kitted out for high-ranking officers, with an Imperial Coffee Machine and an Imperial Waffle maker. For a size comparison, here's my Lambda next to the latest official playset version. Comparison to system set I really liked that set, despite is obvious compromises of proportion (and I infinitely prefer it to the hideous UCS set). I like to think that mine is on the same approximate scale to this but more proportionally accurate. The Lambda is the end result of a long process of trial and error, and I'm pleased with the result. I hope you like it too! For more pictures see my Flickr album. C&C welcome! Rufus
  17. I have decided to build the, what is in my opinion, best ship in Star Wars: the classic and sleek imperial shuttle. From making a wanted list and ticking off what I actually have, is there any other advice you guys can pass on to me? It is a bit daunting but I have amassed about 25% of the total parts and just thinking of that beauty pushes me on. Thanks.

    [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...

  19. *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...
  20. *Your entry has earned 24 XP* Excerpt from Bas Manuu’s Journals: Rumor has it that one of the first jedi temples was hidden deep within Devaronian jungles in the Karatokai mountains. Our fellowship had been searching the jungle for weeks, when we finally found the hidden mountain path to the temple. What we found filled us with hope and wonder. A jedi, floating above the Altar of Balance. Maybe he could be the one. Maybe he could be the guide we were promised... /// I've had this idea for a jedi for some time. This proved to be the perfect time to create a build around him... From left to right: Rrui'kar Ko'uli: Male wookie shaman. He left his tribe and family of Kashyyyk to join the fellowship in search of gifted force users that could help the galaxy. Unknown: Female human, Unknown: Male aqualish. The Jedi: A jedi who survived order 66 and has been in hiding ever since. Unknown: Male Devaronian, and the guide on Devaron. Bas Manu: Male unknown, force devotee, and brilliant artificer...

  21. *Your entry has earned 26 XP* Excerpt from Cdr. Bannon’s log: In order to assess if it was worth establishing a mining operation on Devaron, we had made a deal with the Mining Guild division of the Duluur sector. Their task was to extract a core sample from the planet, and analyse it. Miner Oli 'Digs' Fello: HEY! Guys! Could i get a hand with this thing!? It's kriffing heavy! All this work for dank poodoo! Miner Grawf 'heavy' Jaster: Little busy here kid! These roots grow back faster than a Swoke Swoke's tail! Miner Dral'gof 'Dofer': Puni humies... Hrmpff!! Supervisor Kree'sh: Looksssh not good sshsir! Shthe samplesssh ssshow no signsssh of valuable mineralssssh... Foreman Donka Fuul: Karabast! The commander will not be happy about this! /// I had a lot of fun with the Mining Guild in this entry - a shame they're not more active - I'd love to do more with them... From left to right: Random Rodian security officer. Dral'gof 'Dofer': A male Klatoonian. Primarily used as muscle on smaller prospecting missions. Supervisor Kree'sh: A male Trandoshan, and main supervisor of the Devaron prospect site. Foreman Donka Fuul: Male Devaronian, and local foreman of the Duluur division of the Mining Guild. Miner Oli 'Digs' Fello: human male, and youngest member of the crew. This also means Digs is thrown head-first into every dark hole that needs sampling. Miner Grawf Jaster: A male human, also known as heavy - probably since he's an expert in handling heavy machinery...

    Imperial Eras

    What's your favorite Imperial era? 1500s - 1800s?
  23. *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:
  24. *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...
  25. *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...
