So the Republic got a bit clipped off the top in the last invasion, and being the expansionist imperialist types the OS are, we're looking at moving in and taking that territory.
Building off that though, I tend to agree that from an IC perspective the cloudbreak rules are a bit sudden, and it's pretty realistic to assume that some semblance of Republic authority exists in the region, though diminished (and likely gradually retreating). This, combined with the fact that there have been several threads over the past month or so talking about a larger-scale campaign and whatnot as far as Republic vs. OS go (not to mention the minor faction I think that was formed covering most of the area) leads me to reach out to Republic and former Republic folks with the following proposal.
Now, I've wanted to do a more realistic-ish expansion campaign for a while now, but haven't really had the time or gumption. Well here's the attempt. Basically the idea is that the Sith expand into the now vacant region, confronting a variety of forces in a variety of ways. Because there's no risk of failure or lack of reward involved (dominions can't fail, after all) I think it would make an ideal opportunity for drama-free interactions between otherwise opposed writers and characters.
It would start as a military campaign, probably directed at either Alderaan or Carida. The usual fleet appears in orbit gig, but with more of a focus on the nuance of force a planetary invasion. Or maybe not, maybe for Alderaan it would be a political affair with lots of Sith saber-rattling. Whatever, either way the point is to work with people who would be opposition and craft an interesting interconnected story about a large-scale military and political campaign for what would otherwise be just another string of unconnected dominions.
So, anyone interested?
