The Yuuzhan Vong Empire IC Information
"The Force is nothing more than an idea, and the best way to extinguish an idea is to replace it with a better one, such as we bring." - Nas Choka
The time has come for the Yuuzhan Vong Empire to show this galaxy the True Path. Our way worships life, seen as precious and pure, that all mechanical devices that affect it are considered blasphemy.
Through our living technology, which are gifts from our gods, the Yun'o, we will rid this galaxy of the mechanical plague threatening its very existence. For it is a gift, one provided by the Yun'o, and the Yuuzhan Vong Empire must bring non-adherents into the gods' embrace, to walk and live the True Path...
And if they do not wish to see our truth, cleanse it of those same infidels.
The Yuuzhan Vong Empire OOC Information
The following is a quick rundown of what this group is about, a simplified overview of the species canon, and general questions/answers:
1. What are the Yuuzhan Vong?
The Yuuzhan Vong are, simplified, a race of religious zealots who hate technology, who seek to convert others away from it, and seek to elevate themselves closer to their gods by altering their physical forms through experimentation and 'escalation ceremony'. They use a caste system, which helps their Empire function and their Supreme Overlord maintain leadership.
They are a very war-like species, and consider all non-adherents to their beliefs to be infidels that require cleansing.
2. What is the Yuuzhan Vong Empire?
The Yuuzhan Vong Empire is the invasion force that has reached this galaxy, having traveled from another, following civil war that devastated the Vong's homeworld. The point of view for the Vong Empire is that this new galaxy has been provided to them by the gods to claim, and to reforge in their beliefs and image, by crusading and crushing all resistance under heel.
As a result, this faction shares the same goals and beliefs.
3. What is the faction's purpose?
The purpose of the Vong Empire is to provide a war-like, aggressive and ultimately 'community shaking' group. Ideally, through amicable OOC planning and plotting, the Vong Empire will clash with other factions and groups, provide opposition and even work toward altering the map game in meaningful ways.
I want the faction to embrace the bizarre nature of the Vong, to develop it and even expand on it. Being a unique species with some interesting ideas and concepts, having such a surprising group present and involved could offer some really interesting RP opportunities!
4. I'm interested; what do we do now?
Right now, the initial plan is to begin translating the Vong canon to the faction. This means castes, ranks, history and biot submissions. This will not be a quick process, and will require some effort from everyone, but RP can also begin immediately.
For RP, the plan is this:
The Vong Empire (this faction) has sent an Intendant Executor Zhaelor Anor to establish an advance force that will lay the path for the remainder of the Empire to arrive en masse. This means we as a minor, and small group, will focus on a close knit sequence of plots and arcs, establishing relationships and histories with one another and additional groups/factions.
I have spoken with ORC leadership, and they have given us permission to begin RPing on the Chaos-made New Yuuzhan'tar, where we can cause some disruption, purge some false Yuuzhan Vong pretenders, and bring the True Path to those who have settled into complacency in this new galaxy...
Basically, this Vong Empire is the real deal, and any Vong co-existing in this galaxy are to be re-converted or crushed.
5. And what about the future?
As we increase interest and membership, we will continually assess our situation and activity. If, with enough consistency and member count, we reach a point to establish major, we will. But that is a long term goal; the short term is to get a functioning and interesting core Vong group on Chaos.
Expansion will come as stability does.
The Yuuzhan Vong are a complex species, but no question is too small, and answers can be provided for the curious.
Keep in mind the faction is still developing, but we can do that together if you want to be part of it.
