While several events still need to get concluded, before stuff kinda gets rolling regarding the Resistance and the new situation which Corellia and its allies face, I would like to ask all interested rebells, freelancers, resistance fighters and force users, whether they would actually apply for a smaller event, which I could actually imagine being more fun, if it's properly roleplayed than just being another free entry to the ship's list. Given that I currently have hardly an idea what to add on a potential senator fleet for Linuy Findos, I recently stumbled upon the Lucrehulk Core Ship - though not as impressive as the complete Lucrehulk, I realized that it could be nontheless an interesting capital ship type for a potential future resistance force due to it's somewhat okay-ish armament and its ability to function as some sort of mobile base.
So in short: Linuy might add a ship of this type at the end of the event to the fleet list.
Rough storyline & mission:
War has changed the galaxy once more.
With the fall of the Galactic Alliance at Dac by the hands of the First Order, Corellia and the remaining free worlds outside of the First Order's borders stand alone against the might of a leviathan, mighty enough to crush any possible resistance it faces. Having witnessed the horrors of the Battle of Mon Calamari herself, Senator Linuy Findos is aware that a continuation of the war against the Imperials in order to liberate the galaxy from its tyranny is hardly an option - if those, who were still left, were willing to turn the tides, they had not only to reorganize themselves but to obtain ships and weaponry, which allowed them to constantly harass the ursurpers, potentially even allowing them to drive them out of the systems they recently attempted to annex.
As recent news of the Blackguard's newest expansion into Grand Confederacy territory begins to spread, Findos sees an opportunity within the tides of war from which a newly created resistance force could profit. Neimoidian turncoats from Separatist territory claim that the war efforts of the Grand Confederacy are reaching it's final tribute, as they lose more and more systems per day towards the military forces of the Sith.
Yet their knowledge about the remaining wharfts of the Outer Rim Separatists could be helpful in Findos' current plans. Months ago the production of new Lucrehulk Controll ships was ordered by the Confederacy's leadership in order to spread the movement across the galaxy - and although hardly any of these controll ships had been finished entirely, the core ships themselves are theoretically functional.
Knowing that any negotiations with the remaining Separatists would only be brought to deaf ears, the Neimoidian senator is already planning a heist upon the facilities in order to obtain the core ships before they face total destruction by the Blackguard's forces. Gathering a task force, Senator Findos will lead the heist in personal, having arranged already the preparations for the infiltration mission, as time is running against them.
With the Outer Rim falling slowly under the influence of the Dark Side, the Resistance has to hurry if it wants to secure valuable vessels from another dying faction, who underestimated the strength of the galaxy's current dominating empires.
Potential heist location:
-any former Grand Confederacy world, to where the Blackguard hasn't expanded (yet)
Who can preferably participate/is likely to get involved?
- Corellia & affiliated members
- any former ally of the Grand Confederacy, who somewhat wants to help out the Resistance
- Blackguard (as side antagonists/those who accidentally stumble into the whole heist thing, if we want the story line to get more dramatic)
- anyone else, who somehow could benefit from this event
So yeah, feel free to apply, if people would be interested in this kind of story line.
Feel also free to add suggestions, if I overlooked things or if there are problems within the introduction post. It's 4am in the morning in Central Europe and I'm quite tired, so mistakes can happen.
Other than that, I hope to provide a small functioning storyline, which is enjoyable for every participant and also helps us to delve deeper into the whole "GA is dead, maybe a gouvernment-independent resistance force is needed once more"-idea with our characters.
