the same goes for rp application, just do the same thing but with the rp template so that we can get you into that as well. Dont forget to check out the map first and get in on that sweet land ^_^
“I’d prefer the beginning of the end...The Order can’t win, I won’t let them...” He replied. He was still in the hospital bed, but he felt like a change in the wind per say.
“You’re confident about that, huh?” Lysithea asked. “I’ve seen their fleets up close. Is the Empire really that big?”
“Yes, they’re like a hydra...You cut off one head and three more show up. They have many Fleets...But you know what they say, the bigger they are the harder they fall. We just need to find a chink in the armor.” he explained.
“Hmph, that’s easy to say if you have the manpower but every ship here is essentially all that the Republic has left. Even if other nations contributed I doubt it would still be enough. That’s why if we’re gonna strike, we have to make it count. The only way to win this war is by killing Emperor Zul.”
The mere mention of the name installed fear in Godro. He looked down and started to think. “Their home system will be to well protected, so any attempts at Zül will be hard. Not to mention he doesn’t stay in one place very long..He moves around a lot, but if we could manage it, maybe?...”
"Unfortunately..." He replied. Godro began to star off and get lost in thoughts. "Not stuff I like thinking about, let alone talk about." he added.
“My apologies. If I recall, my predecessor apparently met him a couple years ago and he had a similar experience. Is there anyway we can just talk? It’s not like they wanted to conquer the galaxy all this time.”
Don't Pick Palpatine
Declaration of Standing for President of the General Assembly
If you have watched the Star Wars prequel series, you will have noticed a quirk in an otherwise good-looking democracy: the Galactic Senate is presided by the Supreme Chancellor. The Republic may have survived for a thousand years, but this provision was already planting the seed for its inevitable collapse (there, I spoiled the trilogy for you). When the Galaxy's chief executive was overseeing the process of Parliament, the hope for the legislative branch to be a counterpower to Palpatine's growing influence was permanently extinguished.
We saw what a Parliament led by the wrong person can do (or rather, fail to do). Led by the right person, and for the right people, a Parliament is a temple of democracy, a direct tool for effecting change at levels that neither the SecGen, the Court, or even the Founder could dream of. Together, the General Assembly is no doubt the institution that wields the most Constitutional Power. That power is divided into as many shares as there are citizens willing to engage, such that the General Assembly is the most accessible institution of our democracy. You do not need to sign up, or be interviewed or elected; you only need two things.
1) An Opinion
2) The courage to speak it
When it is functional, the Assembly is the most potent social elevator there is. About a year ago I had just arrived in the Indies, a newcomer like everyone of us has been. It took me only eight months, and no secretarial level appointment, to go from newcomer to Secretary-General. This would have been impossible without the GA. The Assembly is a place where all citizens are given a chance to shine, where they can show their interests and commitment, and make a name for themselves without any barrier.
But even for those who are not interested in the rest of the Indies' Government, the Assembly remains a point of convergence for every citizen, without regards for how long or short they have been here, whether they are a Secretary or a Roleplayer, hang out on Discord or construct factbooks. When you walk in the chamber, everyone is a citizen, and only the quality of their ideas and the poignancy of their arguments can sway the balance.
The General Assembly is the Assembly of the Citizens of this Region. This is why it is so accessible, and why the Constitution affords it power beyond all other offices, including the possibility to impeach other officeholders, pass laws, veto Decrees, and oversee the other branches of Government. But the Assembly does not run itself: it needs a President.
The President of the General Assembly reviews and approves bills, holds polls, updates the registry of our laws, moderates debates, and can create and disband committees. But beyond this, they are an incarnation of the Assembly. Pick an active President, and the Assembly will strive. Pick a compassionate and empathetic President, and it will continue being a core of our democracy. Pick a President who will stand up for their rights, and the Assembly will resist being trampled upon. Find in your President the qualities you want your Assembly to have.
A ticket for the Presidential election has two names. That of the Presidential candidate, and that of a President Pro Tempore. Any citizen may run with any number of Presidential candidates as President Pro Tempore. The President Pro Tempore replaces the President when they are absent, and may assist the President in their duties.
The Office of the President of the General Assembly is hereby open for standing! To stand, contact NWIgov or Celestiam by telegram. You may also DM Celestiam at #Seafarer5810. Please tell them the name of your Presidential and Pro Tempore candidates. You may stand and campaign until the 24th of September, which is when the polls will open.
Best of luck to all!
16 SEPTEMBER, 2020
The Rt. Hon Celestiam, OSE OIF OIN
Office of the Secretary-General

Good luck to all!
“Unfortunately that was their intentions all along. Once they discovered others out there, they were set on conquering them one way or another. That’s how Zül is and by now I’m sure he has most of the populace brainwashed to think the same way.” He replied. He sighed before going into thought again. “You said your leader met with him?” He asked.
“Well, according to semi recent news, you just annihilated a planet and annexed anyone you made ‘diplomatic relations’ with, so I think I’ll pass on the truce. I could serious use a pear though, so I’ll take one of those. And finally, my identity is unimportant, just know I govern this system.”
”Again that shows how much you know, no offense. We still have Diplomatic relations with others and are trying to form new ones, we just have the misfortune of running into people like you who give us no other choice but to fight. Emperor Zül is being quite generous by sending us, considering you attacked us twice unprovoked.”
There was a small pause before the Operator continued, “Well, if that’s it then and you refuse to cooperate...”
“You see this is why my advisors back at Berlin told me not to negotiate with people who destroy planets. Open fire.”
The captain says to his men, still on the Comms.
Returning to his Comms, he says “If annexing space and making a planet uninhabitable is considered diplomacy, I guess you were right, but you just insulted the leader of Frellor, so that’s off the table.” Reveals Xander Miller.
The lead ship, which was the Kontos-class Frigate managed to jump to Lightspeed before the Volley was shot. Two of the Virgil-class Corvettes managed to escape right as the shots were fired, while the rest perished.
What remained of the Starships was left floating out in space, until seven Imperial Fleets suddenly exited hyperspace, some of the new Imperial ships crashing into what remained of Expeditionary Fleet A6.
The mass amounts of Imperial Starships immediately began opening fire on Miller and his fleets. Imperial Dreadnoughts began using their heavy Tractor Beams to pull Xander’s ship closer to the numerous weapon systems. Tens of thousands of Imperial Starfighters/bombers were launched and began swarming the enemy.
The Tyrant-class Missile Cruisers began sending volleys of High Yield Impact Shells at the enemy fleets, while other Torpedo weapon systems of the fleet began launching Proton and Concussion missiles.
“Was just wondering...What was the cause of your past leaders death?...If you don’t mind me asking” Godro replied
“He was shot by someone from Kunkenga,” Lysithea said. “Apparently he was the brother of a soldier who was killed at Ganymede and the Moffs, the governors of Kunkenga had a role in what drove him mad.”
Anima City was surrounded by miles and miles of forests, usually a tourist attraction but currently the Imperials were using it to transfer supplies. An armored convoy was making its way through the woods currently and so far everything was quiet.
However, they weren’t aware of Nubilan rebels hiding among the brush. They were armed to the teeth and currently they were waiting for the signal. One in particular had a detonator in his hand and waited until the convoy had reached a certain position. Once they were there, he pressed the button.
The ground underneath exploded as the IED went off. The vehicles and personnel above were sent flying as blasterfire suddenly went off. The rebels then opened fire, engaging the troops with DH-17 rifles and heavy repeating rifles while others engaged the walkers and tanks with rocket launchers.
The Imperial Convoy was nearly all wiped out from the initial explosion, with a couple soldiers and one AT-ST surviving. The leftover Stormtroopers began returning fire randomly in all directions, but to no use. The enemy was to many and it wasn’t long before the Troopers were taken out. The AT-ST being a larger target was bombarded with missile fire and quickly destroyed.
Meanwhile, the expecting nearby Imperial Outpost was wondering where their next shipment was. After waiting some more they sent a Light Atmospheric Assault Vehicle/Infantry Gunship to investigate the unusual late shipment.
The Gunship loaded up with 40 Stormtroopers began taking off from the Outpost and moving in to investigate. While converging on the scene the Gunship pilot noticed the smoke from the still burning fires.
“Command, we may have some trouble out here. The Convoy has been destroyed, I’m going to see if any hostiles are still present.” The pilot radioed in. He looked down at a scanner and saw multiple heat signatures that weren’t the fires. “Yeah, command we are definitely going to need some backup.” the pilot added.
The Gunship began launching a series of Assault concussion missiles down at the enemy rebels. “Lock and load!” ordered the pilot to the Stormtroopers.
The rebels took cover in the foliage while a rocket was fired at the gunship. Whoever these rebels were, they weren’t just some ragtag team. They were organized, and a bigger threat than they’d realize. Meanwhile, a sniper hiding in the trees aimed and took a shot at the gunship’s pilot.
The Gunship Pilot immediately deployed flairs, causing the incoming missile to miss. He began some basic maneuvers Incase more missiles were launched and kept firing his own at the hiding rebels. “We’re touching down in fifteen seconds, be ready!” The pilot ordered. Laser fire from the Gunships cannons began blasting anything that moved as the Gunship slowly lowered. Before the Pilot could land, a sniper blast struck him in the chest. He attempted his best landing as the life drained from his body, “Im hit!”
The Gunship landed a little harsh, causing the Stormtroopers departure from the ship to be delayed a couple seconds. Once they exited, they began forming a perimeter around the Gunship.
