Here's just a general grab bag of ideas. Feel free to critique or support it. This ain;t meant to be a salt fest, just a crowd source with an original template of how we can make things more juicy round here.

 

I'll start with Rebellions. Here's the old.

 

REBELLION RULES

  • Rebellions allow Minor Factions to claim or neutralize Major Factions’ territory.

TARGETS OF REBELLIONS

  • A Major Faction’s third completed Dominion in a month is vulnerable for 10 days after the Dominion is submitted in the Map Update thread.
  • Any hex belonging to a recalled Major Faction is vulnerable to Rebellion.

HOW TO DECLARE A REBELLION

  • Any Minor Faction or group of Minor Factions may launch a Rebellion, so long as they have been Minor Factions for at least 30 days.
  • Rebellions cannot be started by Minor Factions that are owned by members who hold a position as a Major Faction Admin/Owner on any of their characters.
  • To declare a Rebellion, a Minor Faction Owner must make a clearly labelled OOC thread in the Roleplay Discussion forum and tag the Owner/Admins of the Major Faction being attacked.
  • Any other Minor Faction may join the Rebellion by posting their intention in the same thread.

HOW TO END A REBELLION

  • A Rebellion ends 10 days after the creation of the IC Rebellion thread.

 

Here's my Proposed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

FLASHPOINTS

 

FLASHPOINT RULES

  • Flashpoints are the harbingers of chaos and chance, and represent random and sometimes naturally occurring events in the Galaxy of Star Wars RP: Chaos.
  • In a Flashpoint where more than 2 sides are involved every IC post must clearly label the side being represented.

TARGETS OF FLASHPOINTS

  • Every time a new Rebellion or Invasion is declared, a member of the SWRP Staff Team will roll a ten-sided die in the #dice_rolls discord channel. If the Rebellion/Invasion thread's roll lands on a 10, a Flashpoint is declared and the prefix of the thread is changed to Flashpoint.

FLASHPOINT MODIFIERS

  • When a thread is declared a Flashpoint, it will follow a set of further rules in addition to the rules determined by the type of thread it was prior to becoming a Flashpoint.
  • These rules are decided by a second 4-sided dice roll by Staff in the #flashpoint discord channel, and the corresponding number will decide which modifier to apply to the thread.
  • A Role-play Judge will be assigned to a Flashpoint to ensure a modicum of law and to answer all questions arising from the Chaos.

REBELLION MODIFIERS

  • If a 1 is rolled, the Rebellion is immediately crushed and the Flashpoint is to be treated as a successful Dominion.
  • If a 2 is rolled, the Major Faction owning the planet has put up a blockade, limiting the amount of people from each Minor Faction that joins to a maximum of 5 characters.
  • If a 3 is rolled, two adjacent hexes to this Rebellion (to be determined by Staff) are now also open to Rebellion for the next 10 days.
  • If a 4 is rolled, Major Factions may also join the Rebellion and join either side.

INVASION MODIFIERS

  • If a 1 is rolled, the victor will claim the two hexes closest (to be determined by staff) to the invasion hex from the losing Faction. These will be returned to neutral if dictated so by influence cloud rules.
  • If a 2 is rolled, Requesting Aid restrictions are lifted.
  • If a 3 is rolled, each participating Major Faction must invite a second Major Faction as an ally.
  • If a 4 is rolled, a Minor Faction may declare Rebellion and join the invasion to make it a three way battle. If declared victorious Rebellion rules apply. Any further Minor Factions may join the Flashpoint by posting their intention in the OOC thread.

PROPOSED

 

MANDATES

 

 

 

MAJOR FACTION MANDATES

  • Mandates are unique characteristics that may be adopted by a Major Faction that provide the Major Faction a bonus.

 

CHOOSING A MANDATE

  • A Major Faction Owner must declare his/her Mandate in the Map Update Thread upon their Faction being approved for Major status.
  • Major Faction Mandates and their dates changed will be displayed in the Major Faction Mandates thread.

 

CHANGING A MANDATE

  • A Major Faction Owner may request their Mandate be changed once every 60 days in the Map Update Thread.

 

MAJOR FACTION MANDATES

Strength: Droids and AI do not count against this Faction's Invasion Requesting Aid slots when defending or attacking.

Strength: Once a month, this Major Faction may choose either to 1) re-roll any Flashpoint modifier of any thread it is involved in once or 2) roll a second time for an additional Flashpoint modifier on a thread it is involved in.

Weakness: This Major Faction may not Dominion any planet from the Mid-Rim to the Deep Core, only the Tingel Arm/Unknown Regions/Wild Space/Outer Rim.

RC 212 - While I'm not going to bash your idea(s), I think if you slipped them between a pair of spoiler codes - it might help the readability of this post.

 

I'll draft up another post here after I do some checks and balances on my ideas, as I'd hate to pick apart what I see might need some tweaking without offering a suggestion or seven in return. lol

Ancient Empire:

+ Characters can create technology and vehicles with the old 2013 rules. (Dev threads and all)

- Must start on custom planet and can only dom, invade and skirmish in custom planets for 60 days.

Empire of evil:

+ Can Create a Super Weapon and create an event to use it once a month. (Acquiring and creating it is the same as a SSD )

- If it's destroyed you lose 7 Hexes. If you lose all hexes you become a minor faction for 6 months
