This is to gauge interest in a one-shot Event. To gather however few players remain in our community. Scheduling is always a challenge, so first we find the very best date for as many people. Soon I'll post a second poll asking what format is most popular.

Then we'll find a story for everyone to participate in. I'm interested in the return to Galactic War between the Republic and the Sith Empire.

The question is, will it be a hot war or a cold one?

Regardless, I'm just trying to give everyone something fun to do in-game and help us stay connected...

We beat 'em before, we'll beat 'em again!


The Sith entered this war under the rather childish delusion that they were going to bomb everyone else, and nobody was going to bomb them. At Alderaan, Coruscant, Balmorra, and half a hundred other places, they put their rather naive theory into operation. They sowed the wind, and now they are going to reap the whirlwind.

Mutawa


The Mutaween (also known as MPs or, more offensively, as JPs for Justiciar's Pets) are the Mantle's zealous military police branch. Within the Mantle their goal is to enforce order and religious doctrine, which also includes investigating sabotage, interrogating enemy troops, and watching over slaves alongside more standard MP duties. Outside of the Mantle they act as a secret police force of sorts, keeping an eye on nobles and ensuring that they don't scheme against the Dominion or working under Justiciars and Inquisitors to hunt religious criminals.

Mutawa troops wear white, red, and black Auspice plate armour, with the abbreviation اع (for الشرطة العسكرية or Military Police) on their right pauldron and helmet for identification. Officers wear a green beret and have special ailettes, often dressing with a cloak or cape as well.

Dieselpunk tanks are cool and I finally got around to drawing one, it even comes with fake history lore lol.

105mm Heavy Tank M35 / M35 Meade


The M35 Meade (officially called the 105mm Heavy Tank M35) was an American tank design introduced in 1946 to supplement the medium M26 Pershing, which was believed to be an inadequate counter for German E-75s and E-100s at the time. It was one of only a few heavy tanks to ever enter service with the United States Army, serving primarily in Europe and the Middle East where its exceptional mobility (for a heavy tank) and long-range penetration could be used effectively. Small numbers were also deployed in India where its thick armour made it nearly impenetrable by most Japanese anti-tank weapons, though they struggled greatly with rough terrain and overheating after advancing into Burma.

The M35 is powered by an Allison V-1710 aircraft engine and supported on wide treads, giving it a surprisingly high top speed and low ground pressure despite weighing almost 67 tons. Its large 105mm T5E2 cannon can make short work of most enemy tanks with HVAP or APBC rounds or destroy structures with its oversized HE rounds. Two M1919s mounted coaxially and in the hull provide it with good defense against exposed infantry, while a pintle-mounted dual M2 can tear through light vehicles and even low-flying aircraft with ease.

Thanks for the shoutout, Ela.  I totally miss the naval forces of Imperial Wild Space Command engaging Song Squadron in GSF matches. :P

I miss it too :/ I was flying with and against @Elaeis last night (the former is *much* less anxiety-inducing), as well as yapping with "It" on Fleet chat ( @Niarra should remember who "It" is....ehehehe Jan...), and I do miss the BC days when us RPers pretty much dominated space!

I'm very stoked about the upcoming Game Update and developments regarding Imperial lore.  There are two items of interest to Imperial RPers:

I. Darth Malora.  Apprentice Malora was encountered by Sith Warrior / Sith Inquisitor players on Korriban.  If player's chose to reveal to her master, Lord Renning, that she conspired to thwart his research, Renning commented that he would eventually release her from his service (presumably by death) after a period of torture and suffering for her betrayal.  Lord Renning later appeared in the Shadow of Revan expansion, and was killed on Korriban during the Revanite-conspired Republic invasion.

For years, I'd always assumed Renning got around to killing Malora at some point, but that appears to have not been the case.  I hope we will learn much more about her background from the time since we last saw her on Korriban.  Charles Boyed confirmed she now sits on the Dark Council as head of the Sphere of Biotic Science (BTW, Acina was previously head of the Sphere of Technology).

See? No one can properly fill in for you. Which means come back. :rage: (Corrected in original post...)

I think it is absolutely brilliant that Bioware elected to resurrect an old character like this for the update.

So agreed. It makes the overall galaxy feel so much more integrated and whole when characters we met waaaaaay back in the day are brought back into the story. I have to say I much prefer it to the introduction of new characters, though I realize that there are issues with VO talent that might make old story characters unavailable.
