If you still have it, could I take the Nathema Statue? Can send it to Serama pub-side.

H-411 Blaster Rifle


H-311 Heavy Blaster


H-411 CQBR w/ Launcher



The H-411 series, based on ArmaTek's civilian Z-13 Huntsman, is a family of blasters used extensively by all branches of the Republic Military. It entered limited service shortly before the start of the Great War, intended to eventually replace the aging E-1 blaster rifle, though supply shortages as well as some teething issues meant that many units never acquired them until after the Treaty of Coruscant. While they're weaker than their Imperial counterparts and have the ergonomics of a brick, the H-411 is still looked upon fondly by Republic troops for its reliability and ease of use.

The H-411 is modular and easily customizable to suit any mission's needs, with plenty of accessory kits such as SOPMOD and individual attachments like grenade launchers for troops to use. Two common variants include the heavier H-311 and the CQBR (Close Quarters Battle Receiver) carbine, the former having increased firepower to compete with Imperial DLA-13s at long range and the latter being much lighter for use in boarding actions or urban warfare.

Thanks so much for the input, @Biavi and @Ash! That actually works out super well - it'll give us a regular weeknight event (Jedi Night) and a fun weekend one.

I'm going to pop in a standing event for Saturday evenings...just need to come up with a fun theme...will work on that today!

I would love to see a indie night revival since rp has been pretty much dead, for me, on Shaan. I know I did a poll awhile back and, if you're interested in times, saturday evening seemed to be when most people were available to rp. Hope that helps!

This one isn't for me specifically, I feel like the lyrics would speak to many characters when reflecting on the past decades of cold war, hot war, and Fallen Empires;

Heaven Only Knows - Bob Moses

Sacrifice all your life
Heads hang heavy when there's blood on the line
It's justified, don't ask why
'Cause heaven only knows

Paradise on the other side
Won't you suffer for the angels to fly?
Paralyzed, don't you cry
'Cause heaven only knows

Sacrifice, don't think twice
Wear your faith as you roll in the skies
It's justified, don't ask why
'Cause heaven only knows

Paralyzed on your life
Won't you suffer for the angels to fly?
Sacrifice to make it right
'Cause heaven only knows

Archangel


Archangels are the best of the best within the Mantle. Equipped with ornate hardlight crowns, point defense gauntlets, and agile jetpacks, they're more than capable of dealing with any threat on land or in the air.

Sacred Forge of Khadija


The Sacred Forges of Khadija on the jungle world of Anat mostly produce high-quality armour for the Dominion, including the advanced Curtana suits worn by most Inquisitors and the powered Ancile armour donned by Justiciar knights among others. They also produce weapons on occasion, however, most notably the Mantle's Type-111 Namir lance and the stealthy Type-259 Axis plasma pistol.

The forgemasters of Khadija are unique in that they craft items primarily for worship rather than profit. To them, the act of creation is a form of meditation which helps them commune with their goddesses.

Type-111 Namir Carbine


The Namir is a lightweight particle lance designed for support and rear echelon troops within the Mantle. While it doesn't have the same stopping power as a Type-199, nor is it actually any smaller as the name would suggest, it is significantly lighter and uses less battery power per shot. This makes it a better choice for mortar teams, scouts, provosts, field doctors, and other troops who have to carry heavy gear all the time.

Baroness Zhaleh


Pirates and privateers are common throughout the galaxy, preying on civilian transports and hiding in places where security forces don't dare pursue. While some bands work as mercenaries to raid and intimidate any clients' rivals, or even to explore new areas of space, most are just in it for the loot. Despite the obvious threat they pose, the rebellious life of a pirate is often romanticized in literature and poetry.

One of the most famous bandits in Dominion space is the vicious pirate queen known as Baroness Zhaleh, who controls a small fleet of loyal ships and makes her home in a dangerous empyrean storm.

rejected descriptions:

What did one psionic shipwrecked pirate say to the other? I haven't got a crew!
A heretic, a pirate, and a busty wench walk into a tavern. She asks for a drink.
I LIKE YER HAT BY DA WAY.
It's generally recommended not to place a personality matrix in the aftward rooms of a ship, else you might get a stern talking to.
By the powers! There be all manner o' queer beasties in this hold!
It's often said that piracy is addictive - once you lose your first hand, you're hooked.
"So, you're desperate and you have a lot of money. I like where this is going." - a smuggler
And it is, it is a glorious thing to be a pirate queen!


Viceroy 6mm Rail Revolver


In the time before particle lances became standard-issue, various types of ballistic weapons were the norm for military forces. Even today weapons such as railguns, coilguns, and firearms remain very common among civilians due to their much lower cost and far easier maintenance compared to energy weapons.

The break-action Viceroy 6mm was a standard offhand weapon for Mantle navy officers until roughly 250 years ago, when beam pistols began to replace ballistic weapons. A very large number of them survive today as heirlooms, in use by civilians, or even still wielded by officers with a more traditional style.

I've been to indie night before and I thought it was pretty fun! As for myself, my schedule kinda sucks because college is a full time job for me. The best times for me are on the weekends (i.e. Friday, Saturday, Sunday). Do what's best for others and not necessarily what works for me in particular.

As far as locations go, Rishi's cantina is great, although expansion locked, and Nar Shaddaa's cantina is excellent because cross-faction shenanigans. (Voss isn't half bad either, especailly since some people treat it as though it's...Kwenn?) I'm trying to think of non-cantina locations and am currently coming up empty.

Cantina / Indie Night Revival?
« Last post by Ela on 09/14/18, 07:12:24 AM »
Hello Lovelies,

@Noth championed a pretty cool initiative in the Spring, which was dedicating an event each week for just random drop-in RP, with the predictability of a set location and time. I made it out to a few, but then summer came and it seems everyone's schedule and playtime went kasplodey and interest waned.

Do you all think reviving this would be a good way to bring all of us together again? There have been times in the past few weeks when I've been completely GSF'd/quested/storied out, and have wandered around to the various cantinas and public spots looking for random RP, and seem to always come up empty :( This might be an awesome way to stimulate conversation, and hopefully an increase in server cohesion and participation.

So...your thoughts are very much appreciated! I think the key questions are:

- what day(s) and times would be best? We could always have it one night to start, and perhaps expand it to one weeknight + a weekend time if we have buckets of interest
- my thought is to keep it open-world, to maybe pick up some strays. Any thoughts on locations(s)?

Let me know what you think!

I would say Tython, public stuff is preferable to stronghold stuff for something like a lesson imo. Open world RP might attract some people too maybe!
