Mando relics/history

01 July 2018 - 09:27 AM

So for those of you who haven't seen it, Gilamar Skirata put together a great piece of Dark Age Mando history - the Resource Wars. I've decided they make a fantastic backdrop for coming up with relics and suchlike things. Stuff so far:

What else can we come up with for history and tangible bits thereof?


Axe of Mand'alor the Enduring

01 July 2018 - 09:20 AM

 

OUT OF CHARACTER INFORMATION

PRODUCTION INFORMATION

  • Manufacturer: Unknown Mandalorians
  • Affiliation: Personal
  • Model: Axe
  • Modularity: None
  • Production: Unique
  • Material: Hijarna stone (blade), Mythosaur bone (haft)

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

  • Classification: Axe
  • Size: Average
  • Weight: Heavy

SPECIAL FEATURES

  • Hijarna stone blade
  • Mythosaur bone haft
  • Can resist lightsabers and energy weapons with moderate success

DESCRIPTION

Near the end of the Mandalorian Resource Wars, a bloody Yuuzhan Vong incursion decimated the divided clans. The Mandalorians put aside many of their differences and banded together under a handful of leaders. One of them, a successful warleader named Aghar Fett, declared himself Mandalore the Enduring. He succeeded in building gigantic walls around Vongformed territory. By the time of his death from Gulag Virus during the early days of the Pirate Wars, almost three-quarters of the planet's population followed Mandalore the Enduring. Some historians consider him the first true Mandalore since Shesen Gragatus.
 

Though only a couple of centuries old, Aghar Fett’s axe has become a relic and a symbol. Ancient but immensely durable Mythosaur bone makes up the handle, while the blade is rare Hijarna stone. Lightsabers and heavy energy weapons will notch it but not destroy it.

 

STRENGTHS

  • Outstanding resistance to energy weapons.
  • Good at breaking things.

WEAKNESSES

  • A short weapon lacks reach.
  • An axe, especially a short axe, lacks finesse.
  • The axe is heavy for its size.

DESCRIPTION

Near the end of the Mandalorian Resource Wars, a bloody Yuuzhan Vong incursion decimated the divided clans. The Mandalorians put aside many of their differences and banded together under a handful of leaders. One of them, a successful warleader named Aghar Fett, declared himself Mandalore the Enduring. He succeeded in building gigantic walls around Vongformed territory. By the time of his death from Gulag Virus during the early days of the Pirate Wars, almost three-quarters of the planet's population followed Mandalore the Enduring. Some historians consider him the first true Mandalore since Shesen Gragatus.
 

Though only a couple of centuries old, Aghar Fett’s helmet has become a relic and a symbol. Various owners have updated the masterwork buy'ce up to the modern era. Notably, Rel Connory wore it for a short time, before choosing a lighter helmet design.

STRENGTHS

  • Outstanding resistance to energy weapons.
  • Condensed-matter composite and specialized electronics give good resistance to sonic weapons.
  • HUD-linked life-form detector can see through cloaking devices.

WEAKNESSES

  • A heavy helmet carries real risk to the wearer's neck, even with an integrated neck support involved.
  • A heavy helmet is tiring.
  • Integrated neck support limits head mobility. Head will have trouble tilting more than 15-20 degrees to either side.
  • EMP/ion damage will induce a 15-second shutdown/reboot cycle in all systems.
  • Small piercing weapons could find gaps in the beskar neck brace.

Five posts in this thread equal one contract with Bard Independent, a Tier 5 Workshop.

 

 

 

UNSPECIFIED PLANET

OUTER RIM TERRITORIES

 

By hook and by crook, Connory had arranged for the Mandalorians to conquer this market. Not by force, of course, but by just plain selling the best stuff -- to the locals and to each other. The Mandokarla meeting on Dxun had left him certain that plenty of his countryfolk had insanely good wares to offer. He'd reached out to them with an invitation: show up, do business. Since they were Mandos, too, he fully expected them to take the initiative, make contacts, and hammer out deals. The future, after all, was Mandalorian.

 

For his part, he wandered between stalls. He'd left a couple of Mandalorian employees at the Bard Independent stall in full beskar'gam. Their job involved demonstrating Mircinuur Isolation Projectors, Bloodtrace Scanpacks, Nanorazers, Sundering magcharge pistols, and the new alloy hextrine, among other things. No point in showing up to a cookout empty-handed. Connory focused on other people's booths, though. He already knew about his own technology, after all.
