New Members are welcome to join. STAR WARS SENATE GAME NOVA Nova: a star is about to collapse in the The Vorc sector with catastrophic effects. Whole polulations, industry and trade routes are compromised. The peoples along the Celanon Spur will be devastated within the next two years. All life will be snuffed out and scientist’s expect Junction 5 and it’s moon Delaluna will suffer total devastation. Refugees, fleeing the nova star fallout and other desperate situations on their own home worlds have started to spread throughout the galaxy in a great diaspora. Unfortunately only the rich have successfully made the transition. It is the galactic fabric that will be tested, the senate needs viable planets willing (and some unwilling) to take refugees in and help them get back on their feet, integrate them into their society for permanent inclusion. Will a planet prosper by this, what concessions should be made? These men, women and children, lacking the most basic of needs, often find themselves preyed upon by criminals, slavers and others willing to take advantage of their situation. Whole populations exceeding 100 million need to move or face death that will surely come. Short term profits of extraction and plundering the effected worlds resources will surely tempt systems to invest in the relocation of several million peoples but will it be enough? Or will it be the criminal syndicates or the Hutts that offer the most tempting offer of life for the desperate? In the Senate, the representatives of these various worlds now vie to ensure their own constituent's needs are met. The Galaxy has been torn asunder, and while the damage caused by previous squabbling was great, reconstruction and growth has slowly won out. Unfortunately criminal elements have taken advantage of the power vacuum and cemented their profit margins in a semi legitimate fashion. More white collar crime by these organizations have surfaced, their profit margins are increasing tenfold. Not every system is willing to spend their taxes to help fight crime outside of their backyard, thus their less fortunate "allies" that have been gripped by corruption and scandal. Sadly corruption is not relegated to poorer worlds alone. The problems facing the Senate are many. Can the squabbling delegates maintain the peace? Will rougue systems offer a viable alternative? Can planets appease their own constituents while also providing for the needs of those displaced by the current crisis? Can worlds promote galactic welfare and justice without helping those less fortunate? Only time will tell. Welcome to the SWC Galactic Senate Game. Post two will contain the Constitution of the Senate. If you have questions about the game, please read through the constitution, or contact the forum moderators: Sinrebirth, Bazinga’d or Bardan_Jusik. The third post will be a placeholder to keep the roster of the game. It will be edited in the future to show the updated roster (probably monthly) along with the current Chief of State, Vice Chief of State and Speaker of the House.
