[moved from previous site, written by Foln up to 20-ATC] These summaries serve to connect the dots between the Guild's stories written for pre-SWTOR and the end-game Zakuul Occupation events. These are plot summaries for stories that have been written, plan to be written, plan to be immortalized in comic form, or may not be written at all, but all at least provide a history and a backbone for the RP'ers and the writers to branch off of. Feel free to read through them if the guild story is something you're interested in and leave input! If you're inspired to tie your character(s) in in some way, let me know in a reply or a PM and I'd be happy to help with an integration! ATC = Number of years after the signing of the TREATY OF CORUSCANT Guild Story Timeline 8 ATC – The Origin of the 47th - DARK LEGACY (Chapter 10) Between a rock and a hard place, Jento Svarthos is summoned before the Dark Council for a session that will decide his fate... and perhaps the fate of Empire itself. 9 ATC – Rise of The Relentless - The Arrival: The Relentless returns from drydock as Scelestus pursues an old friend with whom he hopes to cultivate a base of power. Jento sends an agent to investigate, an agent whose path crosses a suicidal mercenary and takes her to a madman’s doorstep in uncharted space. 10 ATC – Game Start - An Imminent Threat: The 47th is informed of an internal threat to the very fragile peace between the Republic and the Empire. A select team is sent to rescue the one man who knows the truth… and to save an Imperial world from an idealistic psychopath. - [Galactic Event] Darth Jadus disappears from the Galactic Stage. 11 ATC - The Obscurity: After rumors surface of a cyborg carving a path of destruction through Republic-held Taris, Domenik is tasked with investigating its origin. After ruling out modern Imperial or Republic ties, he learns of a defunct super-soldier program from the Jedi Civil War, abandoned on Taris after Darth Malak’s planet-scarring orbital bombardment. Intrigued, the biochemist personally investigates. - The Reluctant: The 47th receives word that a high-value prisoner of war has been sprung from a secret Republic prison on Corellia. The 47th is sent to extract him from the Republic world, hoping to acquire his knowledge of an impending plot by a Dark Councilor to reopen the wound of galactic war. 12 ATC The Battle of Corellia - [Galactic Event][To Be Written]: Galactic War! Darth Decimus convinced the Corellian Governing Council to join the Empire, and the Republic has landed troops to reclaim the core world. The 47th is sent to aid in the defense, and in doing so, discovers an even greater threat. The Battle of Ilum - [Galactic Event][To Be Written]: The Empire invades Ilum in a bid to secure the planet’s valuable crystal supply after learning of their innate stealth properties. However, treachery ensues after the invasion when Darth Malgus denounces the absent Darth Vitiate and titles himself Emperor! The 47th battles against internal conflict, the Republic, and the forces of the False Emperor alike as they race to save the Empire from irreparable damage. 13 ATC The Makeb Incident - [Galactic Event][To Be Written]: When the Hutt Cartel invades Makeb, the Empire is ill-equipped to respond. With nearly all of the military’s scarce resources engaging the Republic across the Galaxy, the Dark Council sends the 47th to investigate. With the Relentless recently outfitted with stealth technology retrofitted from Malgus’ Stealth Armada, the 47th quietly slips into the Makeb system as the Republic works to supplant the Hutts. After true intention of the Hutt invasion comes to light, the 47th diligently works to support a small ground team on the surface in their attempt to secure a Galactic War game-changer: Isotope-5. The Dread War - [Galactic Event][To Be Written]: After the Dread Master’s base of operation on Oricon was discovered, the 47th is dispatched with the Imperial Task Force sent to root them out and destroy them. Disaster falls upon the Task Force as the Relentless is swept up in the maddening power of fear commanded by the Dread Masters. As the crew is driven mad and the fleet around them collapses into chaos, will the 47th meet their doom over the volcanic planet? 14 ATC The Revanite War - [Galactic Event][To Be Written]: Sacking of Tython The Relentless is dispatched just ahead of the Tython Invasion force to secure a pivotal communications relay station with the mission of disrupting communications between Tython and Coruscant. Charging deep into the heart of the Republic, well behind enemy lines, the 47th makes its daring move to silence any cries for help coming from the Jedi homeworld. - [Galactic Event][To Be Written]: Sacking of Korriban After securing the relay station deep in the heart of Republic space, the 47th intercepts a communication revealing Republic plans to invade Korriban. With a Republic fleet bearing down on the Sith homeworld, the 47th sends an emergency communique to the Dark Council to warn any of its number present on that world to evacuate immediately. The broadcast compromises their position, and the Relentless must escape hostile territory with Republic forces in close pursuit. - [Galactic Event][To Be Written]: Battle of Rishi (No direct involvement) After the suspiciously coincidental events of Tython and Korriban, the 47th begins an investigation, hoping to root out a corrupted element that alerted the Republic to the defenselessness of Korriban at the moment of invasion. When news of the Battle of Rishi reaches them along with a comprehensive list of ill-intentioned conspirators, calling themselves Revanites, that have pervaded every level of the Imperial society and military, the 47th works to excise some of the alleged conspirators from the ship as the command crew targets high-ranking corrupt elements within the Imperial power structure. - [Galactic Event][To Be Written]: Battle of Yavin The Relentless is dispatched along with the bulk of the Empire’s forces, and the bulk of the Republic’s forces, to the fourth moon of the planet Yavin as the two superpowers align themselves against the Revanite threat. Wary of Republic treachery and with the wound of Korriban still fresh in their minds, the 47th is incredibly reticent to work alongside Republic troops. But with the urging of Darth Marr and the other leaders of the makeshift alliance, the 47th begrudgingly agrees to contribute on the condition that they are assigned their own missions. 15 ATC - [Galactic Event][To Be Written]: Battle of Ziost When news reaches the 47th of the formless former Sith Emperor’s presence on and possession of the historic Imperial world of Ziost, the Relentless is immediately dispatched to engage him there at all haste and costs. However, over the great distance they must travel to reach Ziost, they arrive in the Ziost system just in time for an embargo on travel to the planet to be levied. While the command structure argues with the military’s leaders, Vitiate initiates a ritual that consumes all life on the planet, leaving it a deadened husk. Optional: The 47th sends an investigative team to the surface to solve the mystery of Vitiate’s presence there. - [Galactic Event][To Be Written]: First Zakuul incursions into Imperial outpost systems and Korriban After losing communications with the Sith homeworld of Korriban and several smaller outposts on the edge of Imperial space, the 47th is sent as part of a task force to investigate the matter. Upon arriving and dispatching a ground contingent, they learn that the world was sacked by an unknown enemy. While forces on the ground attempt to unravel the mystery of the culprit, the Relentless receives an urgent, encrypted command, of the highest clearance but from a hidden source, urgently ordering the ship to abandon its investigation and its forces conducting it. The orders direct the ship to coordinates in deep space, far from any civilised world. The 47th complies, darting off into the unknown... - [Galactic Event][To Be Written]: Greater Zakuul invasion of the core worlds Soon after arriving in deep space, the Relentless begins receiving several, brief transmissions from Imperial space requesting reinforcements. The holonet becomes swamped with notices of invasion by an unknown enemy as entire worlds go silent. In their isolation, internal disputes break out among the 47th’s ranks and their leader, Jento Svarthos, sets off in search of the mysterious transmission’s source. 16 ATC - [Galactic Event][To Be Written]: Zakuul Occupation After observing the blitzkrieg conflict for its duration from afar, news reaches the Relentless that the Empire and the Republic have both subjected themselves to Zakuulan rule. Orders are dispatched from Dromund Kaas for all Imperial Naval ships to return to the capital for decommissioning. More internal struggle ensues before the remaining 47th forces agree to defy that order and continue acting in the Empire’s best interests, even if unofficially. As outlaws during Arcann’s occupation of the core worlds, the 47th IEF begins a covert campaign to undermine the Eternal Empire’s interests and support resistance operations in Imperial space. Working closely with SOKOL Industries, whose business is struggling under the materials requisitioning requirements of the Eternal Throne, the 47th avoids direct conflict with the superior Eternal Fleet and fights to survive these trying times… 20 ATC - [Galactic Event][To Be Written]: Formation of the Alliance Rumors of an Alliance forming in the depths of wild space arise as the 47th struggles to continue operating independently. With scarce sources of resupply and enemies on all sides (Including the new Sith Empress, even if only enemies on an official level), the 47th sends an emissary to contact the Alliance and gain an insight into the movement. With SOKOL in shambles and facing an impending buyout by ZAHN INDUSTRIES, and with their own banner disowning them, the 47th has no choice but to entertain the thought of joining the ragtag, motley resistance...
- [Galactic Event][To Be Written]: The Call for Return
While Sokol has been instrumental in the Alliance and has subtly benefited the Empire when possible, The Relentless continues to bide it's time for the moment to return to action. A moment that is finally upon them. The Relentless get's an encrypted message from the original hidden source. It is time to finally re-kindle the Empire. Starting by revealing themselves on the planet Ossus.
- [Galactic Event][To Be Written]: Corellian Onslaught
Following the Victory on Ossus the Relentless has been dispatched to Vanguard the assault on Corellia and the Meridian complex. Following this decisive victory and the affect on Republic production, The Empire has begun setting up footholds along the primary Trade routes into the Core.
- [Galactic Event][To Be Written]: Assault on Alderaan The 47th and the Relentless have been tasked with swiftly dispatching the Organa Holdings on Alderaan. If the Empire can hold this section of Alderaan it will mean a balance shift on the planet and therefore the system. This would give Imperial access to both the Perlimian and Trellen Trade routes. A huge portion of the Galaxy rimward of Corellia and spinward of Hutt Space.
