Conquest 2.0

Welcome one and all, to Conquest!

In its simplest form, Conquest allows each player to insert themselves into a mixed-time line in the Star Wars universe that features factions from across the era’s. However, it is not all about them, far from it. It is about what you choose to do and how you react to everything. In Conquest, there are very few limits, which are often pointed out ahead of time, and players are given freedom to do as they wish, within reason.

This is not only about yourself and your actions however. Conquest places your starting character at the head of a faction that you create. You could make it like your favorite faction if you so wish, or even head off into completely unexplored territory! The choice is up to you.

Throughout your play, there will be a number of IC (In Character) PM chains between yourself and the overlord (at this time me) when you encounter NPC’s. You can, of course, opt out of such if you are uncomfortable for a streamlined version where you get the results of the meeting.

Not only this, but you can travel to the worlds of the Star Wars universe and do as you please. However, keep in mind that everything has a reaction. Not only this, but the actions of your faction will indeed impact galactic events. Pirating? Go for it. Trading? Why not! Admiral? The bridge awaits, Sir! The limits are merely logic, and your imagination. Though, I will at times have to step in to stop ridiculous situations, and I will always advise (unless asked not to) on events going on or moves you may make. Such as advising against waltzing around on Coruscant with a lightsaber…

In order for this all to run smoothly however, you must be willing to communicate with the other players and I when it is needed. Absences are of course expected, and no need to stress over your faction every day! I can help alleviate such stress and make sure nothing goes crazy in your brief absences.

Other than that, it is good to note that while once learned you can ignore them to some extent, Conquest ultimate runs on the use of numbers and equations. Not to worry however, for I will always be ready and willing to help. The best part of which, is that once you figure out the numbers once for something, you never need to worry about it again unless you want to modify it. On the plus side, there is already a lot of the work done and pre-calculated units to use if you want to avoid math at all possible.

Lastly, that the majority of Conquest is run using google docs. Do note, that I only share the docs to those who PM me specifically about them and only to the people the docs pertain. I highly advise setting up a gmail for this if you are to participate, as to keep your name safe and secret.

With that out of the way, I hope you join us in Conquest, and enjoy it as we currently do!

If you are interested, post here in the thread or PM me for further details.

Of course. Merely would need to invest in research, scientists, and perhaps hide from prying eyes.

Well, locating a planet that is out of the way and doesn't get much traffic would be a good first step. After that, it is merely a matter of building research centers. Then, it is merely a matter of personnel and researching what you desire.

As for 'Force Order', you must first meet certain pre-req's before you can do so. Some of which, but of course not limited to, are having a force sensitive character, force user artifacts, instruction manuals, or even just finding certain temples.

Ok let's stop with the reach around Sil.How do you want past players to post their stuff are we going to do it like last time and post fleets first.Then Characters followed by Ground forces and finally factions?I say that's the best way to do it so we can link them to our accounts for ease of use.

Yep, exactly that.

The reason for such, is so at each step people can voice questions/concerns/suggestions on each. By the end, easy to link them together for easy access at later dates.
