Greetings Star Forge community!

Novus Dominion here, and boy are we heading for some good times! The Dominion has just concluded our 2nd Story Arc and latest Campaign; Troska Unrest! As the Dominion moves out of this Story Arc, we head towards a new one that we plan to align with the prepared happenings of SWTOR 5.10! We engage with the on going story of the game with our own, while throwing in a few twists and turns with our allies and adversaries.

Speaking of adversaries, we are planning a GUILD V GUILD RP WAR! Talks are already in motion, but RP events will be coming in the near future as our guilds collide. Stay tuned!

The guild is also preparing to fully open recruitment for our Naval sub-branch and new Citizen branch! Information for both should be forthcoming by the end of the month, and we're extremely happy with the new content we will be bringing to the community! The Naval Sub-branch will be focusing on Fleet vs Fleet battles with enemy NPC and Player ships in a RTS type system with other guilds who use similar dice roll systems. While our Citizen branch will be giving our social RPiers something to love by opening our Stronghold as a full fledged Imperial Colony. We will be opening the Stronghold to the public at times for market days, random encounters, and the hosting of the DOMINION ARENA! Gladiatorial fighting for honor and glory! Pit yourself or slaves against one another in spectacular fashion! Community events coming SOON!

Between all this, we also have a great deal of new promotions and advancements in the guild. A new Sith Overseer, new Imperial Officers, Agents moving up in the world, and a leader of the Shadow Guard! Great happenings and progress for us here in the Dominion!

Here is a little showing:
Campaign: Troska Unrest
Chapter 3: New World, New Info

The Dominion had a multi-layered strategy to claim the forested world of Troska as their own. For the initial intelligence gathering, a team was sent to gather intelligence on the planet's leaders in order to formulate a more effective plan in placing a puppet government in place on the world. Led by Cipher Agent Fourty-Six, the team sneaked around the compound while the agent distracted the planetary nobles holding a gathering nearby. The team successfully gathered information, though they were not able to recover the Cipher. However, this proved to play to the Dominion's advantage, as the information revealed that one of the top rulers of the planet, Zarz Kyber, Prince of Troska, was becoming disenfranchised with the Republic and their lack of support of the planet. After the group extracted, Cipher fourty-six made use of their intelligence training, and secured audience with the prince in order to further the Dominion's goals. She managed to get him to admit to his frustrations, and pointed him in the direction of the Dominion and what they had the power to do for him...
The Dominion Forces prepare to storm the Troska Palace
Imperial Soldiers of the 45th Expeditionary Force fall in to recieve orders from the Imperator; Darth Cruxx
Sith Acolytes of the Dominion train under Overseers Lord Arkis'sais and Se'hura in the Overlord's presence.
Dominion High Command led by Admiral Sev'inte'loro speaks on the coming war effort and strategem.
The Overlord, Dominion Council, and several officers witness the deployment of their new weapon: The IGBM.
Many events are on the way as we conclude September and move into the rest of Fall! New Stories, new Characters, NPCs, Allies/Enemy guilds, Community RP, Player content and MORE! The Dominion is the Empire's best hope for victory! GLORY TO THE EMPIRE! GLORY TO THE DOMINION!!!

Greetings beautiful Star Forge RP community!!!

Novus Dominion has had another successful week as we promote new officers, bring forth new RP opportunities for all branches, and finish off Chapter 1 of our Campaign!


Chapter 1: Dream of Empire PART 2


The following day began with OPEN REBELLION.
The Dominion woke up to sounds of unrest, blasterfire, riots, and
explosions in the streets in a sector of the capital not too far from
the Capitol Building. Their objective: Snuff out the resistance and
fight towards the Capitol Building, where the Ferroan Cabinet resides.

A particular member of the cabinet had conspired against the Dominion
after the forced signing of the treaty and had taken over the Ferroan leadership
with little resistance as all were loyalist to the previous governor, except the
Conspirator himself. The Conspirator’s name is 'Farce' and he lifted
himself up as the new self-proclaimed Governor of Ferro.

In an attempt to gain his power for himself, he spread lies to the
Ferroan people of the Dominion forces killing the Governor Orwell,
he convinced the loyalist party to support him through deceit of him
being the most loyal to the Governor, therefore sparking open rebellion
in the streets of the capital...


Leading the united front to victory were the two brothers of the Dominion Council, Darth Jerrico and Darth Cruxx. A plan was quickly drafted and the fight was made between two separate groups of the primary invasion party. Group Aurek led by Darth Jerrico and Group Besh led by Darth Cruxx. A dramatic dash was made for the capitol building.

Through the conflict, allies were lost and enemies were defeated. From Civilians, to Local Nature Preservationist, and Neighborhood Watch groups, all would not prevail against the overwhelming might of the Sith Empire. Unfortunately Major Jenkins who was leading the fight against the uprising in the City’s Marketplace, was shot dead before reinforcements could intervene, causing an outrage from Darth Jerrico and Group Aurek.

Overall the resistance on the streets of the Capital City were wiped out, however the source was still at large. The Dominion continued their march to the Capitol Building where, however along the way they encountered a small Ferroan girl who was seen crying in despair. Accordinging to several disputed reports, her name is Lyla. She was seen crying, as her deceased parents were also seen dead on the ground in front of their destroyed home with blaster holes in both of their chests. She was seen picking up a blaster while tears streamed down her face. She held up her father’s blaster to the approaching Dominion Forces. Her hands shook terribly. Darth Jerrico took the liberty to console the child before she could do any harm to herself or to any Dominion personnel. She was escorted off Ferro by an Imperial shuttle and taken to Thila. As a result, she is potentially a future ally that may assist the Dominion.

The Dominion continued their march to victory. The Capitol Building was now in sight and guarding the entrance were two defending elite guardsmen who wore traditional armor and clothing while also bearing traditional Ferroan Warblades. Both were masked with intricate gold embroidery however one wore bright white clothing, while the other wore stark black clothing. ‘Light’ and ‘Dark’, Although neither would not speak, ‘Light’ was persuaded to step aside and ‘Dark’ was persuaded to join the Dominion as fellow comrade, potentially serving as a beneficial ally in the future.

Obstructing Dominion Forces from entering the Capitol Building was a large sealed door, which was successfully blasted open by a talented Sith within the ranks, Prefect Xaraphan. Immediately after, the two Darths stormed the apex of corruption supported by the Dominion’s collective Military, Sith, Contractor, and Intelligence forces. They mercilessly and relentlessly forced their way to the top of the building where the cabinet room was located. Inside the room was the entire cabinet and at the center of the room was the false icon, Governor Farce. They were protected by a rayshield which was quickly disabled by Lord Caesius.

Dominion Forces entered the chamber. Some bolstered the might of the two Darths while some guarded the entrance, preventing any of the cabinet members from leaving out of fear. With Governor Farce’s back against the wall and against all odds he resulted into dramatic measures by attempting to take his own life and the life of everyone in the chamber by using a large thermal detonator. The Dominion failed to stop him. The Governor killed all of the cabinet members and severely injured many of the Dominion. Ironically he managed to survive his own suicide attempt and was forced to endure a fate much worse than what he had anticipated…

Darth Jerrico gave the order for all the injured to be treated by medical services as well as the order to have Governor Farce escorted to a well known cliffside within the city. The site itself was known in the past to host public executions. The Dominion ultimately declare victory by the cliffside. Two imperial guardsmen escorted the cripplied governor to the cliffside and place him on his knees. With a show of force from the Sith Empire and the Novus Dominion, Darth Jerrico drove his lightsaber into the back of the governor before kicking off the side of the cliff. As the Ferroan leadership dies and the Imperial banners draped down all officially marked buildings in the capital, fear entered the lives of the many crowds of Ferroans who watched the display. Because of the successful invasion and the mercy shown on the Ferroan girl, Lyla, 'Imperial Day' is an official holiday held annual on Ferro on the day of the Novus Dominion invasion.

Shortly after the display, a specific Hutt Cartel fleet is seen jumping out of hyperspace into the atmosphere of Ferro. Who is this Hutt, what is he doing on Ferro, and is the Dominion under a new threat?

To be continued...



The primary focus of the guild finishing off January into Feburary, is our internal affairs. The guild is working on ensuring that we have the people both officership and basic leaders to help organize the day to day RP necessary for a large guild. We are currently staffing and working on building up our current member base as we bring in new members nearly every other day.

The Dominion Sith has grown massively, retaining their running title as the most populated and dominant branch of the guild. Several Acolytes are working toward their apprenticeship and graduation from the Thila academy. We congratulate several who have attained masters, and others that have made to Lord. Currently SITH RECRUITMENT IS CLOSED until further notice, so we can train and focus on the current membership! We will reopen once we add new Overseers and others to the ranks.

The 45th Shock Trooper Regiment has added new Privates to their ranks, working weekly with the Sith in training simulations for the war. We now need to organize and structure our troops and looking for future Non Commissioned Officers (NCO) and other positions of authority! Enlist today, and work up to filling out our chain of command!

Intel is always looking for the next great agent! We need a wide arrange of agents to fill all roles and work with the Lord Commandant to ensure the flow of information. There is currently an on going story arc for Intel for engaging RP!

The Shadow Guard is our sacred enforcers and honor guard, training the dark side, ready to devote their lives to the Council, Executor, and Overlord. The Shadow Guard is always looking to increase their numbers, if you are ready to join this zealous cult for a unique experience. Join today!

Civil Affairs is currently undergoing heavy maintenance, as we rework the idea of Diplomats and more of the "civilian" side of the guild. We will have more information soon, however, all hopefuls should continue to apply!

(sub branches)

Contractors have been renamed to Venators, an elite bounty hunter/merc force led by one of our newest officers. Venators will now have a more streamlined experience and jobs with Dominion bounties becoming a new available feature. Looking to earn some credits? Join the Venators!

The Dominion is always in great need for slaves! We are working on promoting and teaching a specific leader to help organize the slaves, however, we are in need of more slaves, future slave leaders, and slavers to recruit/manage slaves! Dominion slaves are a prized addition to the realism factor of the guild, join today!

Greetings Star Forge community!

Today we only have a recruitment bump, as majority of the guild took this last week to relax, RP socially, train in their respective branches, and build their characters.

Civil Affairs as a branch is no more, we have disbanded the branch and reformed a new branch: The Dominion Court!

The Dominion Court focuses on the political, social, and family RP that has been in the background of the guild since its beginning, focusing on the story of House Shadows and House Calderon, which are the two major Sith families that include the major leaders of the guild. The Court ensures stability in the powerbase, focusing on the larger structure, and the policy making of the overall dynasty that is the Dominion.

Under the Dominion Court; The Shadow Guard, Slaves, and Civilians now are under the control of the Dominion Court as a branch, with the Shadow Guard working much more as an honor guard, slaves as a support role, and civilians filling roles of advisement, and structure.

This comes to the good stuff, what we need!

MILITARY: We have just released our new Military Field Manual and Armor/Uniform standards! Always looking to enlist (and conscript) new soldiers into the ranks! We have a dire need to foster a new generation of troops for the future of the NCO Corps.

INTEL: There are several major operations in the works, and some that have already begun! We need agents ready to go out into the galaxy and collect information! Looking for a few more Trainees for these new operations!

VENATORS: Venator Bounty Hunters are hiring! It's a brand new sub-branch and needs to populate!

SLAVES: The Slaves are always in need! We JUST elected our first Slave leader who will be organizing the slaves and beginning some events for them! We are also looking for a Slaver to help recruit and organize the slaves. If interested, sign up!

CIVILIANS: We are looking for several Civilian positions for the Dominion Court! Positions listed below!
-Advisor of Imperial Law: Advises the court on all matters pertaining to Imperial Law and Justice, working to ensure the Dominion is in line with Imperial Edicts and that Dominion Law does not overlap. [vacant]

-Advisor of Science and Development: Advises the court on scientific advancements and the development of new creations for weaponized and civil purposes. [vacant]

-Advisor of Logistics: Advises the court on supply lines for Dominion continuing war effort, and working to secure treaties for trade with the Dominion in and out of the Empire. [vacant]

-Advisor of Ancient Knowledge: Advises the court on all matters relating to ancient Sith lore and culture, but also that of fallen civilizations and history. [vacant]

-Treasurer: The Treasurer is in charge of all financial matters of the Dominion, reporting to the court the monetary state of the powerbase. They are responsible for working with the Ministry of Logistics to report all taxes and large spending. Ensures the Dominion is continually funded. [vacant]

-Ambassadors/Diplomats: Any and all Ambassadors and Diplomats to other powerbases, associations, and factions from the Dominion. [vacant]

Hello there!

Star Forge community, we bring you yet another update from the amazing adventure that is Novus Dominion!

As of right now both The Sith Branch and Shadow Guard are NOT ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS.

We apologize for the inconvenience this may place on potential applicants, however, both branches are at a very large size right now (Seems like plenty of people want to be Sith or Honor Guards). Recruitment is currently closed while we focus on the current population of these branches, developing their stories, ranking them up, and giving them a proper and permanent place in the Dominion hierarchy. The branches will reopen as a time when the Branch Leaders feel that they have advanced their people enough for newcommers.


Military Branch: Join the Imperial 45th Shock Trooper Regiment, a hardened Imperial force ready to take the battle to the enemy. Now with a fully designed and fleshed out Field Manual, uniform standards (with armor and weapons issued or helped to provide), and more. Everyone is an Infantrymen first, but there are many many positions avaible!
-Personnel Records

Work up as a Trooper, become Naval Qualified and crew commissioned onboard our Flagship: The Ashas Revenge
-Weapons Officer
-Science Officer
-Comms Officer

AND MORE! Work your way up into advanced schools such as:
The Commissar Academy
Become a Dominion Commissar; a political and propaganda official whom works closely with the Dominion Shadow Guard, sniffing for espionage, heresy, corruption, and disorder in the ranks. Reporting directly to the Officer corps.

Dominion Black Ops Selection: Dominion Special Forces, currently NOT AVAILABLE until we get more basic troopers and fill out our crew in the ships!

Flight School: Dream of being an Imperial pilot? Rise through the basic ranks, and then earn your wings ready to fight in space, or provide support to the ground troops.

Dominion Naval Academy: Name, Represent, and Command a vessel in the Dominion Fleet. Certify yourself on naval knowledge, and tactics, and become one with the dice roll as you work to fight with your ship, or even begin commanding battlegroups!

Intel Branch: Join the D.I.A Dominion Intelligence Agency, and its cadre of working agents! Don't just stand around saying you're an agent... BE, and agent! We have spies working daily to gather information IN THE FIELD. Deploying one, two, or full teams of agents depending on the circumstances. The Intelligence Field Manual provided helps our agents find what they're looking for!

Create a Republic alt, and listen in on important information for the war effort... Follow person's of interest, gain their trust, and report back to command. Write up dossiers and reports on the forums spreading communication and knowledge to the other branches. YOU ARE THE AGENT, we work you like one! Enjoy Espionage and Spy RP? This is the real deal.

<Yes, we've even "infiltrated" an enemy guild before, with full consent and permission from the Republic Guild Leader and officership!>

Play the field agent, the Cipher, and look for clues in the field. No matter if its freelance listening, or on an assignment, you're vital to the Dominion and overall Imperial spynetwork.

Play support, be a Fixer, and work in the scientific labs, research and development side of the DIA with classified information.

Or perhaps work to Archive, and Interrogate, be a Minder, delve into the dark world of silencing information and storing it.

No matter the Path you choose, you start down as a simple Trainee new to Sith Intelligence and the DIA.

VENATORS and SLAVES are still recruiting, but we just had a nice big push for them and we're actually not too worried with the numbers currently on hand! New Bounty Hunters are always welcome, and Slaves are an amazing realism factor! We just got our 7th ACTIVE SLAVE

And of course, Dominion Court - Civilian positions are all still ready and available.

Novus Dominion has just released a Press Release to the galaxy, directed at the Sith Empire detailing information on an on going plot against the Dominion Overlord; Darth Harbinger. This is an on going community multi-ally conspiracy we've gladly accepted (me specifically) where we've been targeted by unknown persons. This ties directly into our internal story, and our participation in the Galactic Conquest community!

Our next Chapter for our campaign is this coming weekend, and we continue to grow, and delve into good quality RP! Feel free to message for any questions! Aureole Valdias, Glory to the Empire!

GREETINGS Wonderful Star Forge RP Community!

Today, Novus Dominion continued their ongoing Campaign! Campaign III, with our Chapter 2 story! Hutts and Heresy!


Chapter 2: Hutts and Heresy

After the conquest of Ferro has been complete, a new challenger arrived on the scene... A Hutt Cartel boss by the name of "Big Junta" had arrived to relay a message, an offer of information important to the Overlord. Sending his envoy in the form of his second in command; Boombaa the Hutt, the small Cartel fleet deemed the Dominion a worthy business venture to begin dealing directly with the Empire. However, not all things were as they appeared...

Assembling aboard the Ashas Revenge over the world of Ferro, the Dominion prepared to welcome the emissary from the Hutt fleet. Boombaa the Hutt welcomed the Dominion leaders; Imperator Cruxx and Commandant Jerrico aboard his flagship in an offering of peace to do business. Accepting the offer, the pair took their team aboard the Hutt ship bound for the world of Gigor, a planet in the neighboring sector.

Danger quickly erupted when the Hutt vessel was thrown out of hyperspace unexpectedly, causing a panic from the Hutts. It was soon discovered that the Gigoran slaves had revolted, and taken command of the ship engine room and other key systems. Battling for survival as a countdown began for self destruct, the Dominion assumed command of the vessel destroying all in their path. It was thanks to combined effort and leadership that the Dominion was able to push to the engine room, and with the help of a protocol droid which was quickly destroyed.

Finding the Leader of this slave rebellion, the Dominion forces quickly overwhelmed the slaves before the damage could be done saving Boombaa and his vessel. Information in hand through a datapad, it was discovered that Boombaa was betrayed by Big Junta in a powerplay to frame him for the deaths of Imperials. Boombaa claims the Big Junta would never do this, but the Dominion fears they have now entered a small Hutt gang war. However.... Something does not feel right, as the Dominion is ferried home to Thila... A dark shroud looms over the events as the information for the Overlord hangs in the balance...



Novus Dominion has been very busy with our internal affairs, from various smaller Story Arcs, a range of missions and trainings from each branch, and bringing in new members! We have attended allied functions such as a wedding at Paragon Covenant and social with Black Gauntlet, and we've got more planned for the entire community as our Campaign begins to end toward March!

The biggest news this week is that SLAVE RECRUITMENT IS NOW CLOSED until further notice. Yup, just like Sith and Shadow Guard applicants, our Slave population has exploded in recent days, and we want to ensure all new slaves get the courtesy and full attention they deserve. We are very happy to have nearly 10 active slaves now in Novus Dominion! The branch will re-open when we're ready to bring in more and the slave caste is more established.

In other news, the Dominion has begun establishing Fire Teams and other formations in our Military Branch. We are looking for active full time soldiers to fill these ranks and roles, along with other various RP opportunities. Enlist in the 45th today!

As always, the Dominion Court is looking for civilian advisors to our Council and noble Sith house.

Glory to the Empire! Auriole Validas!

Star Forge RP community! Hear me!

This last week was a very mild week of social events, training, and cooperative RP with friends across multiple guilds! Several branches performed routine tasks and we were able to begin new talks with possible allies and reaffirming old alliances with Imperial guilds.

We here at Novus Dominion fully support building our community by assisting other guilds in their content, going out into the public world instead of RPing secluded, and formulating great stories even with the opposite faction. If you're a Republic, Cartel, or any other kind of player outside the Empire, feel free to contact us for RP!

Novus Dominion is specifically looking for guilds and personnel to associate with beyond the Empire for RP purposes! We are looking specifically for the following:

Chiss Ascendancy - The Chiss have long been allies of the Sith Empire, even now, they remain a deeply connected and rooted core ally. The Dominion seeks Chiss Aristocra, Chiss Defense Force, and other personnel to befriend and associate with.

Hutt Cartel - The Hutts are breaking their long time friendship with the Republic and becoming more and more lucretive in their business opportunities. We seek Hutts of various reputation (and size) to do business with. Trade, Weapons, Slaves...

Pirate/Marauders - Harassing our enemies, is important to the Dominion. We are not beneath hiring out outsiders of the Empire to ensure our agenda is seen through. Disrupting shipping lanes, targeting specific enemy forces, and more.

Businesses and Private Corporations - The need for the Dominion powerbase to grow economically is important so that we might build and develop ourselves, but also give hefty tribute to the Empire. We are looking for businesses and corporations interested in dealing with the Dominion a wide variety of projects from manufacturing to developing new weapons.

Novus Dominion is still looking for Military Forces! Troopers to enlist in the 45th Shock Trooper Regiment, and Intelligence Agents for the D.I.A, but we are also looking for Venators: Venators are skilled Dominion sponsored bounty hunters, who are able to work outside Imperial influence and even perform in places we in the Empire can't always go. Apply now!

Sith, Shadow Guard, and Slave applications are still CLOSED, but will re-open soon!
