Greetings! I am Chi'Kami Aizune, Head of Public Relations for the Celestial Enclave AKA Celestial Alliance. Before you Scroll down to Learn a bit more about the Guilds, allow me to take the time to share a brief note with you!

Celestial Argonauts as well as the Celestial Dreadnauts a guilds are very dynamic. What do I mean by this?

Its origins lies in Jung Ma which is another server on SWTOR. In the past Jung Ma (JM) was a hugely sprawling place with many Roleplayers and also many players who adored and clung to PvP as well as PvE. A huge level of respect can be found in any server for sure, but on JM the community was and still is very special and very close.Indeed many other current guilds on The Ebon Hawk (TEH) were originally guilds on JM.

This is worth noting because the player base that has come to TEH has their origins on JM. If you think about it, players who stay dedicated to a server even as its population decreases must be players who not only love their server but also players that really love this game. More than a few of us have played for at least a year; some much longer.



Below is some At-A-Glance Information before you move onto a few other details.

Conquests: Great Emphasis on Conquest and can lead to individual rewards/promotions in addition to conquest rewards. Though by and large your positive and helpful attitude will be your greatest asset towards success.

The Celestial Enclave Backstory:

[Refer to the Individual Backstory Blurbs at the end of this page to find a taste of their own flavor]

The Alliance or Enclave persists on a constant basis of give and take. It is comprised mostly of the Argonaut and Dreadnaut enclaves which each have their own story. The organization was formed shortly after the invasion of Zakuulan forces under Arcann’s father, Valkorian. At first a practical necessity, the alliance has become more and more of a main stay for members of both enclaves. While other alliances formed in the galaxy amongst other independent factions including splinter republic and imperial groups, the urge to follow suit prevailed.

In efforts to agree on a command and ranking structure they took a few titles from the republic and the empire while adding a few of their own. It was obvious that the two main enclaves wanted to keep a high degree of independence and identity as negotiations dragged on between members of both councils. The very notion of a joint council was contested until at least the 3rd year of their alliance. These council roles were important in that those who would be appointed not only served in the high echelons of their own enclave but also served as council members on a joint Council, later called the Celestial Council. The respective council members retained the title and rank of Celestial regardless of their enclave origin.

In an effort to further soften the hostilities between the two enclaves it became necessary to adopt a form of government or law and regulations that both could subscribe to. One of the very first issues to contend with was the topic of slavery. Elements of the Dreadnauts did incorporate slavery in various levels within its inner-workings. This was a point of uncompromising passion for the Argonauts who insisted that the practice be abolished. Several former justice fielded individuals on both sides rose up to bring the topic into discussions in joint hearings however these never amounted to much more than heated debates. By the time the 3rd year had come and while the Joint Council was being formed, it became apparent to both sides that a tertiary representative was needed in discussions over the cultures of both enclaves and how they would fit together under a joint set of regulations.

In order to supplement and resolve the morally disputable arguments, it was decided that the Joint Council shall appoint Celestials who may or may not as well score high in combat experience, leadership, and seniority, but also those who hail from the public relations fields in their former lives. This was to help ensure that the Joint Council of the Celestial Alliance would have in each instance of a meeting or hearing of any kind, have Celestials that are already familiar with the issues that may be revolving around the members of both enclaves. In order to help make sure such knowledge could be attained, maintained, and shared both enclaves agreed to form public relation departments that trained members on the basics of Alliance or Joint Enclave law as well as morality. The instructors and heads of such offices were later ranked and titled as Councilors. These Councilors would also be the ones mainly appointed to speak on behalf of their enclave during gatherings or hearings in front of the Joint Council.
The roles of Councilors were constantly amended and relegated to the point that these individuals had to become very well rounded in many aspects of Enclave-life both in their own and the Alliance enclave. They became the hands of guidance, friendship and understanding while also being the arms of force, leadership and fortitude. They usually provided a great pool for recruitment in all departments including future roles as Celestials themselves.

It was upon these main departments and roles that the basic foundation of a joint coexistence first bore its first few fruits. In order to help keep a simultaneous sense of identity both enclaves were permitted to have roughly their own ranking structure that went below Councilor, and any ranks and titles for private non-jointly formed entities were also allowed to be freely decided by the respective enclave.

The Dreadnauts tended to mock the Argonauts for their use of very familiar terms that were synonymous to those that the Galactic Republic would use, specifically the Jedi. Out of pure jest the Dreadnauts then took terms that The Empire favored, specifically the Sith. This would provide a point of confusion for enclave members and also other groups that the Alliance as a whole would encounter. Even more awkward would be the former Jedi or Sith that suddenly had or ran across titles such as “Darth” or “Master.” Both sides reluctantly used the term “apprentice” for later aged recruits.

The niceties of etiquette and rank however, did not seem incredibly important after one of the most important events in Celestial Alliance history occurred. Upon a joint venture between both enclaves to create a sustainable and advance warship, a tragic and sinister ploy brought both sides to the brink of civil war; mistrust ensued as a large portion of the plans had been stolen from the main archives. Fortunately, thanks to a vigilant few, the true perpetrator was revealed. It was a fringe Imperial organization that had been responsible. The campaign to find the plans, and bring the guilty to justice or judgment brought the enclaves together in a way that the Joint Council or departments ever could have. In the end, the matter was resolved and all sides within in the Celestial Enclave(alliance) that had in prior times wanted to shed each others’ blood, had now shed blood together in the violent bloody vortex of war. Famous battle groups such as Unit 17 and Yerro-5 had their names forged and immortalized follow the aftermaths of what was later called the Fringe Wars.

Even amidst a new era of rule in the galaxy, amidst the Eternal Fleet, Eternal Alliance, the Republic and The Empire, foes become allies and allies become foes. Though they may seek justice and uphold to high values, sometimes the ends must ultimately satiate the means in this darkening pool of stars and planets. While many of its members maintain their own beliefs in the life of the Force, of themselves or of power, still others look more and more towards the stars which they see as they peer out their starships—numbering in the millions, guiding the way forth. A former Jedi in conversation with a former Sith replied to the Sith’s question of “So What do you follow now if not just the ‘way of the Force and knowledge? ‘ “ and said, “I Suppose the Stars Guide us. “

Additional Information on Each Faction Below: [See our Website for even more!]

Celestial Argonauts:

Traditionally, the Argonauts had no loyalties - to the Republic, to the Empire, or to the Sith or Jedi orders are we an organisation that leans towards justice and keeping the peace, but is not directly allied with the other peace-keeping powers in the canonical universe. We can, of course, ally with other guilds on the server as suits our purposes, but we would have no loyalty or obligation to the Republic or the Jedi Order. In fact, RP-wise, the guild leader herself (Rivyr Tam) left the Jedi Order because she saw their pacifism as ineffective in bringing justice to the galaxy.

In the wake of the invasion of the Eternal Empire of Zakuul, <Celestial Argonauts> has increased its cooperation with both Republic and Some Imperial Forces however these relationships, like during any massive inter-galactic war are uncertain and unclear.

Where we are now, the Celestial Argonauts have recently suffered a great loss. Malicious internal actors from the very top of the organisation turned their backs on the Celestials, and brought the guild to its knees. Rising from the ashes, Rivyr Tam has taken up the mantle to lead the Argonauts, and is attempting to rebuild that which was destroyed by such devastating betrayal.

On the other side of the galaxy, Rivyr's twin sister, Blackwater, raised up a mirror organisation, calling them the Celestial Dreadnauts to mock her sister's guild. Being more interested in personally wreaking havoc than in running a complex organisation, it is not sure how long Blackwater Tam will hold the reins of the Dreadnauts, but for now, Rivyr is keeping a wary eye on her as the Argonauts rebuild.


Celestial Dreadnauts:

Traditionally, the Dreadnauts have no loyalties - to the Republic, to the Empire, or to the Sith or Jedi orders. Major elements of the enclave include Bounty Hunters, Agents, and Force Sensitives. However as war broke out between the Republic and the Empire several factors having to do with trade and war atrocities caused the enclave to re-mold itself in many ways through many trials. Right before the invasion of Zakuulan forces the Dreadnauts found themselves allying more and more with the more neutral factions in the galaxy as the general mood of alliance-forming was increasing as the Eternal Fleet imposed its will on the Core Worlds and Outer Rim worlds. One faction they encountered and dealt with most were the Celestial Argonauts. In fact a rising member of the enclave, Blackwater Tam, knew that her sister ran an organization of goody-goodies; also largely neutral. The way in which Blackwater took hold of The Dreadnauts is another questionable and interesting tale. Needless to say, The bond that slowly formed between the two enclaves caused both to change the ways in which either faced the challenges that the galaxy had to offer. They likened their strange friendship to something as a model of what the Odessen alliance was: new, fragile and in constant peril by inner and outside forces.

One major note is that as the 2 enclaves' relationship grew, leadership of the now <Celestial> Dreadnauts, was in a constant state of change. Blackwater Tam took hold of power, but soon true to her own nature succumbed to a bit of boredom and fancied thrills that dealt less and less with enclave matters. A lot of the power was handled and handed to her right hand. The identity of this individual is yet still a mystery even amidst its own people and allies.

Update**

The RolePlay Department is Now Actively Recruiting for 2 Office Branches!

The Military - Deep Horizon Security Force(s)


The DHSF are the main military personel of the <Celestial Argonauts> whose origins lay within the Flagship: Deep Horizon. They functioned as the ship's security and later expanded to becoming expeditionary forces on planets the Argonauts travelled to. The flagship now has its own dedicated security force, which is another branch of the Celestial Armed Forces. They have their own rank system.


Seekers (Force sensitive, Diplomatic, Organizers)




Seekers are by and large force sensitives. They function firstly as diplomats and communications officers and function separately from the Celestial Armed Forces. Although they are armed, their primary objectives tend to avoid combative situations and usually seek to form frienships and/or alliances with others on behalf of the <Celestial Argonauts>. They answer directly to the Celestial Council.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ciry...ature=youtu.be

Video Release for an RP event we are helping organize for SPRING 2017

All details can be found on enjin at this link

Or you can read about some of it below:

----------------


Greetings,

An urgent and faithful meeting is being organized on Tython and we call upon you, regardless of your current path, to come.

Many threats now face us in the galaxy and from so many corners of it. It is no longer clear how many new enemies can appear to tear down the Hopes for peace.

I was once a temple guardian on Tython, and now my path has taken my elsewhere to many places. However, my soul has always sought Peace and the source of the Force. I have met new friends and foes.

The galaxy teeters in a constant state of war and silence-- numbing us to any notion or subtle chance for cooperation. Many factions like the Odessen Alliance has rallied during this dark hour.

I support their cause and seek to supplement it with the combined efforts of those of who perhaps have still not taken a clear side.

The former Empire has also rallied at this time, and indeed it shows its support for those on Odessen. Can't we then, current and former followers of the Light also compromise and cooperated for the greater justice??

As a temple guardian i dawned the mask that confirmed my belief in harboring no attachments but that only of the Force and for public service. I now understand that we must for the sake of the public seek to attach ourselves to the only Cause that is of significance today-- a cause that will have its effect on hundreds of generations to come. I dawn my mask again not to return to who I once was, but to begin anew. I no longer harbor attachments to futility or the rigid aspects of pure pacifism. But that I must do what must be done for this Cause.



Seeker Chi'Zune Aizune
Former Jedi Temple Guardian
<Celestial Argonauts>

This is an Open-invitation to all RPers and RP-PvErs

Location/Meeting Place: Tythong
Date: March, TBA Pending Confirmation of Participants

Depending on how many can participate it will involve not only a time for Dialogue, but also a time to work together to do things such as Commander Runs and/or World Bosses

Somtimes those things may seem like they're just for the hardcore PvErs but don't we all love star wars and this game?? This is to help each other find others who also share a passion for RP-PvE

If you have any questions please contact me! Here on enjin or on kik (chidorixshinjutsu)

Basic "Requirements" and Reccomendations:

1. This will be a Pubside Event (I'm sorry my imperial bros and sis!)

2. HIGHLY advised to bring your Temple Guardian outfit if you have one (At least teh Robe and Mask)

3. Please do not come expecting so many things that YOU want to see-- this is more of an Open-Invite so you should be considerate of others, and respectful.

4. I am ware that in the Lore, Temple Guardians did not really form until the Clone War era lol. Just work with it! xD Try to read Chi'zune's letter to try and match your character to this chapter of their experiences as best you can, if you wish. Otherwise it'll also be a fun time for us and will even help your guilds out if we do things like commander runs or world bosses.

The following is a news article written by one of our international news reporters

-------------------------------

Hello again!

This week has been… Intense. On Tuesday it was like “Oh crap, crafting conquest again”, you never feel ready for that madness.

Anyway, we went for Makeb, the Celestial factories started to work and the war supplies mass production started right away.

Sadly, our productive capacity wasn’t enough, and this week ended without board in any of the sides, and without flagship plans, in consequence. The fact that some of our factories exploded didn’t help, really (Our hard work has been affected for a bug that suddenly infected some of our toons, glitching our conquest tab, and not allowing those characters to keep earning points).

But… It wasn’t a bad week, not at all! Our guildies made a really great effort. So I would like to mention our Republic side World Eaters: Legacies ______, ______ and _______. And also our Imperial side World Eaters: ______, ______ (again), and ______. They really made a crazy ton of points and never gave up!! (If you are like "the heck is a World Eater?", click here).

Warzones were present as always, many Celestial PVP groups were formed to go into them. Uprisings, flashpoints and the everyday stuff too!

Also, we went to Toborro’s Courtyard and annihilated his golden llama!

Then we did school runs through Karagga’s Palace and Eternity Vault to introduce some guildies to the world of operations. It went really well, we enjoy seeing how people who have never done an operation before, gets hype going through one of them, learning and improving! We look forward to catch people’s attention about operations and be able to do more of this.

Thanks to our guildies for being so awesome! (if you are not a guildie and you want to join, you can click here)

Let’s see what happens next week!

It is against the terms of service to directly call out a name on the forums, even in a good way, you might want to remove this post if those are toon names of guildies as you could get banned for it.
