    “The Senate is full of greedy, squabbling delegates. There is no interest in the common good."
    -Senator Palpatine, speaking at the time of the Blockade of Naboo

    Star Wars: The RPF Galactic Senate Game: A Galactic Alliance

    The First Order-Resistance War was perpetuated by the clones of Palpatine, scarred survivor that was Captain Phasma, and the remnant military juggernaut of the Empire, revealing Starkiller Base, superlaser-equipped Xyston's, and Galactic Jammers against an unsuspecting galaxy. It was only via the defeat of the Sith's legacy, the restoration of the New Republic Chancellorship on Chandrila, and a coup by reformist Imperials that the war was brought to a final end, eventually dubbed the Second Galactic Civil War, or, the SECOND GREAT WAR.

    An Emperor reorganised the Empire into a peaceful GALACTIC ALLIANCE with the New Republic, Confederate, Hapan and Chiss nations, the Jedi Order acting as a guardian and member ally. In recent memory they have defeated the ONE SITH, a resurgent group of numerous darksiders that did not adhere to the Rule of Two, following a decade long conflict between factions of the Empire that supported competing Emperor's.

    The current, light-side inclined Emperor now addresses the Senate, sagacious, given the proper respect that a Head of State would.

    It is nearly a century since the Second Great War, and the Emperor is taking the lead in commemorating the ultimate defeat of the Sith; even their recent efforts did not compare to the scourge of Palpatine.

    “The battles across the galaxy were ones which originated here, within the Senate. But, that time is over now.

    “The depredations of Palpatine and his Sith Eternal Empire are history,” said His Imperial Majesty, letting his words flow, his voice carry, and looking as if he was speaking to each and every Senator in turn. “We have peace.”

    “My position was affirmed to manage a peaceful transition. I know that many within the Alliance have feared for stability as the Empire grows stronger, and that I would invent a reason to extend my reach, that my ties to the Jedi Order, Imperial Knights and SkyWalkers would see me force my position.”

    A murmuring among the Senators.

    “But I would avert that tension, here and now. I have, with the agreement of the Council, today decided to open the Senate membership to elections, and from your numbers appoint a Chancellor and Vice Chair to manage the creation of a true constitutional democracy.”

    “When we next return, we shall be a very different chamber, and I welcome it.”

    A year passed.

    The Empire and New Republic had become so entwined in the last years that it was impossible to draw borders across the galaxy, and so the entire Senate was drawn between two distinct political blocs.

    The EMPIRE PARTY and the REPUBLIC PARTY took the majority of the seats, with a handful of neutral systems among them. Tensions remain; the joint government is relatively young, after all - the Old Republic lasted for twenty-five millennia; the First Sith Empire lasted for seven.

    War has not broken out.

    Yet.

    All systems within the Senate must declare a faction.

    All those outside the Senate...

    ... well, they are fair game.

    Welcome to the SWC Galactic Senate Game. Post two will contain the Constitution of the Senate. Post three will contain the modifications for the Senate (if any). If you have questions about the game, please read through the constitution, or contact the forum moderator: Sinrebirth. This first 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 Emperor, Chancellor, and Vice Chair.

    Please, be sure to familiarize yourself with all three of the first posts. This will help you tremendously as the game continues.

    Let the politics begin!! Take advantage of the first 10 days of the thread to make your political positions known and do so in-game (and within the rules) socializing so we can have a better idea of how the game will unfold.

    The Premise

    You are a Senator who must represent the will of your homeworld to the best of your ability.

    The Senate maintains a working relationship with the Emperor that has come to rule after the First Order-Resistance War, and must work with that body in order to avoid yet another war. If you start to make them mad, an assassin droid with suspicious-looking, Imperial-like markings, or an Knight loyal to the Emperor might make its way into your luxury apartment. Equally, when sacrificing your soul to please the Chancellor, you will be making decisions that corrupt you -- become too corrupt, and you’ll lose your way.

    But things are even more complicated; you have to not just appeal to your home-world - but your Party, and your Emperor...

    The Rules:

    This is RP Lite. I expect a handful of prompts from the Emperor (and later Chancellor, who will act as co-GM), and the players themselves to argue and debate among themselves for the duration of the Session. A full character sheet is not necessary, I look forward to you detailing your personas during the game. The game is an open format, so you may post as often as you like between sessions, and inside the Chamber arguing, or in the hallways being sneaky, or in your penthouses weaving political dalliances.

    The Sheet:

    Name:
    Picture: If available
    Planet Represented:
    Party Chosen: Empire or Republic
    Acceptance Speech: Please write a short acceptance speech.

    Sheets go straight into the thread, and need not go to the GM.

    This is a new version of an old favourite for SWC. Have fun with it! That’s what it’s here for!

    Party Chosen: Republic

    Acceptance Speech:

    I would like to thank the people of Kuat for nominating me to represent them in the Senate.

    We have had a varied history, serving different factions. But we have always prided ourselves in creating the greatest ships in the galaxy thanks to Kuat Drive Yards.

    It is my hope that Kuat can continue to be a beacon of diplomacy, after such dark times. We must move on from that dark past and look forward to a brighter future.

    I am known for not pulling any punches and believe me, I will be making sure that Kuat's voice is heard in the chamber. Our people will have it heard. The galaxy shall remain at peace.

    United!

    Planet Represented: Nubia
    Party Chosen: Republic
    Acceptance Speech:

    "Thank you very much. I come before you tonight as a proud member of the Galactic Republic and as a son of Nubia. We worked hard to reach this moment, and I can’t thank you enough for all of your commitment and support over the last several months. From the shallow oceans and the rolling fields that divide our majestic mountains to the grand pinnacles of Rordis and Nubia City, the voters have spoken in one voice to deliver this great victory.

    I thank the people of Nubia for electing me as your next Senator in the Galactic Senate. For as long as I hold office, I will do everything within my power to ensure that the work I do is up to your standards; I am here to serve you well and to make you proud. Most of all, I will remember that while the honor is mine, this Senate seat does not belong to any one person or political party—it belongs to the people.

    In every corner of our world, I met with people, young and old, human and non-human, looked them in the eye, shook their hands, and asked them for their vote. I didn’t worry about their party affiliation, and they didn’t worry about mine. It was simply a shared conviction that brought us all together.

    Across this vast galaxy, we are united by basic convictions that we only need to state clearly to win a majority. If anyone still doubts that, let them look to Nubia. We have triumphed over the rigors of war and emerged from the shadows to meet the new dawn. As the sole survivor of the horrendous massacre that decimated the Senate, I understand your plea; I understand your hardship. I stand with you… and I will fight for you.

    Fellow citizens, what happened in this election can happen all over the Republic. You and I are witnesses to the truth that ideals, hard work, and strength of heart can overcome any political machine or defeat any opposing force that may threaten our borders. We ran an unforgettable campaign and led a cause that deserved and received all that we could give it.

    And now, as I proudly take up the duty you have bestowed upon me, I promise to do my best for Nubia and the Republic every time the roll is called. I go to Coruscant as the representative of truth, answering only to my conscience and to the people.

    Thank you. Long live the Republic!"

    Party Chosen: Empire
    Acceptance Speech:

    It is an honor for you that I shall represent the interests of Corellia in the Senate.

    This little corner of the galaxy is rich in resources and industry, under my watchful term in the Senate we will see our profits increase many times over.

    I’ve heard some grumbling about organized crime and smuggling. I will turn my back on those issues. Those businesses give us more opportunities to make profits, and as long as those entities are paying, who cares what they are doing? Quid pro quo my friends, keep that in mind when you come to me.

    The people of Corellia can rest well in their beds tonight knowing that investing heavily in local industries will mean more credits in their bank accounts, as long as I am here speaking for them.

    The new Senator stood in his pod, his translator firmly attached so others could understand him. A week ago, he was a hydroponics farmer on a herdship. Now, he was the representative for millions of Ithorians across the galaxy.
    Good morning. It's my pleasure to represent the greenest world in the galaxy, Ithor.
    He shot an amused glance at the Wookiee pod to let them know he was joking.

    My name is Ish. Ish Kabibble. Friends call me Ishy. Until I invite you to do so, please call me Senator Kabibble. Though I do not have much public experience with this, please don't consider me new. I have been involved in considerable local politics since I was a pupa. After all, as the saying goes, all politics are local.

    I am honored to represent my world and the Herdships going through the galaxy. I look forward to working with all of you, Republic and Empire, to make our galaxy everything it can be.

    Greetings, my name is Amethyst Ordgwal, I am the senator elect for Bakura. First, I thank those who elected me and have entrusted me with the representation of my homeworld, great trust has been bestowed upon me, and I will endeavor to do my best to represent Bakura and defend freedom both there and in the galaxy at large. I am the daughter of two heroes of the second Galactic Civil war and therefore have a deep understanding of the need for not only my people but that of my shared heritage, Luxrel, to be free. As the cousin of the current Crowned Princess of Bakura, I believe I have the necessary 'pull' as it were to get the job done, and done with both class and dignity.

    I look forward to working with everyone here for the benefit of the galaxy.

    His hands were folded into an arch as he listened attentively to the other Senator's speeches. Certainly a diverse group. Of both peoples and ideas. From the speeches of his own fellow party members, that of Vito the Hutt and Bellorum of Corellia, he sensed there may be a contentious issue that was sure to arise at some point. One that could see divisions within his own party. It was a issue best avoided, fractions this early on...

    A turn toward Bellorum: "Senator Bellorum as you have indicated, a strong focus on economic growth and integration is an essential ingredient for a healthy, unified society. The people of Atrisia would certainly be keen on exploring the deepening ties of industry and commerce for not only the galaxy at large but also directly between Atrisia and Corellia. Naturally in a fashion that benefits both systems,"

    A nod as he settled back into his seat.

    Bellorum
    Senate chambers

    The brief statement she’d made wasn’t exactly eloquent, but she didn’t care. Losing her patience and killing the speech writer had been unfortunate, but she would replace him when time permitted.

    She’d barely settled in when a familiar voice caught her attention, immediately to her right was the Senator from Nubia… Aryan Graul.

    This was a pleasant surprise, well maybe not a surprise. She’d known he would be there, just not so close. Their only meeting had been an interesting evening, where Bellorum had drugged the stiff then Chancellor. He’d arrived at a Sith Gala, and she’d felt his vexation over the escort Insipid had provided, as well as those gathered in general.

    Bellorum had done him a favor by taking the edge off with a dose of a benzo. With a small sigh she realized he may have been given a little more than necessary, but it had helped Graul cope with Insipid’s garish display of a dead Marasiah Fel. He probably didn’t realize that he had her to thank for that.

    While she listened to him speak, Bellorum couldn't help but think that the man was blessed with the sort of timbre that made women weak in the knees. Aryan’s voice was extremely appealing, and his speech was perfect, as if she’d expect anything less.

    Pretending to read something on her datapad, the Dark Lady wondered if it would be inappropriate to initiate a conversation with him. Bringing up their last meeting would be awkward, but she was just settling on what to say when someone else addressed her.

    Her eyes widened as she searched out who had spoken.

    It was Villis Mohc, an ecclesiastic seated to her left. Bellorum had wondered what a cultist was doing in the Senate, and the opportunity had just been made available to ask that question. But not today.

    It would be foolish to outright reject any alliance that might be lucrative, so she merely nodded and followed with a respectable lowering of her head. Her team had briefed her on not seeming to be too interested, or eager. It was fine, she’d play things cool.

    She made a note to reach out to Vito, and to Valet Tal. It would be wise to get a read for any economic opportunities there.

    Acceptance Speech:

    "And so it is. The votes have been tallied, and while the Senatorial race grew closer than I would have liked, great people of Iziz, I graciously accept your command to remain as your voice on the galactic stage! Like many of you, I am exhausted of the turmoil that has so often consumed our world and the Galaxy as a whole. The seemingly generational cycle of destruction must be broken, if not for us, but for our children, and our childrens' children! We must put down our weapons and learn, as long as the road may be, to work with each other for a greater, more prosperous future!

    I share your distrust for the Imperials. Believe me I do. But that is why it is so crucial that this political experiment succeeds, so we can ensure the likes of Palpatine and his ilk may never return to power. But let it be known to all that if we in the Senate are unsuccessful, and the Empire does fall back into old habits, trust me when I say that Onderon will not go quietly into the night! Never again will foreign boots march upon our soil!

    For Onderon! For the Republic!

    IC Kigrael
    Senate Chambers

    In the artificially darkened segment of the Senate reserved for those that preferred or needed a darker environment, a talon extended through a slit in the black glove the hand wore. It tapped on the surface of the desk as the blue eyes of the being constantly roamed across the Senate. ’I now understand why we have never had a representative here…’ he thought.

    As the introductions continued, Kigrael shifted in his seat, mind going back to when the Circle had discussed creating this position. He’d been skeptical, as had every other candidate until the ‘Cold Danda Sine’ master had explained that the Masters had decided that the almost constant state of warfare across the galaxy was becoming more and more detrimental to the Anzati. It was the same philosophy that had been used to get the usually fiercely independent creatures to actually vote for a representative to this Senate.

    His train of thought was broken at the notice of a soft motion behind him. It brought a chuckle to his lips, as he was reminded of his ‘bodyguards’. When his people had informed the government that they would be taking part in galactic politics for the first time ever, the one requirement that had been presented them was that they would have such ‘protection’. Glancing over his shoulder for a moment his piercing blue eyes found the Knights deeper in the shadows behind his seat.

    Their protection wasn’t for him, but more of a reminder not to eat the Senate. They were, perhaps, more nervous after he’d had a snack. But…the speechwriter had been too annoying and what he’d written, lackluster. And he hadn’t been told he shouldn’t feed so it was better he’d entered the first session with a bit of a top-up.

    His attention returning to the bowl of the Senate he studied the others, a little over half human. “Hmmmm, almost evenly split between Imperial and Republic factions. Onderon, Atrisia, Bothuwai, Bakura, Corellia, Ithor, Nubia, Nal Hutta, Bellassa, and Kuat besides us so far have been the most vocal.” he mused in a low, flat tone. The ones that had his first attention were the nonhumans, often he’d found in his ‘travels’ that the nonhumans still had their own discrimination they faced and the possibility of using that was something to be considered.

    The one that set the talon to tapping again was the Bakuran senator. As far as he recalled that world was a human one. The corner of his lip twitched, as he recalled a mention that there were a couple Twi-leks in the royal family of that world. The backlight of a datapad lit the shadows slightly, revealing his features. Fingers tapping swiftly, he brought up the data that was provided to the Senators once they took office. A nod, he’d been right, she was a member of the royal family, indeed.

    ’Ahh well could have been a pressure point with the Republic faction.’ he mused.

    The momentary distraction faded and he sat back, the dim light of the datapad fading and darkness retaking its place. Time would tell how the factions aligned and how it affected the way the Senate operated, letting him decide how he’d involve himself in these short lived beings politics.

    IC Amethyst Ordgwal - Senator for Bakura.
    Senate Chambers.


    Out of her depth, that's how she felt right now. Daughter of the youngest Princess of Bakura she'd done enough charity work, social work and support work to know what was needed in that sector of the galaxy. As her joint home work Luxrel had not presented a Senator, she felt compelled to look out for that worlds' best interests. This was a burden as she did not resembled the people of either world at all. As a non human from worlds inhabited by humans and near humans, Amethyst stood out clearly. Not only her appearance but her accent was not of the world most beings associated Twi'lek's with, Ryloth. Much of her upbringing had been on Bakura and she considered it home.

    Looking around she took in the Imperial Senators, she had to fight the urge to verbally assault them all for no apparent reason. Her entire life had been about Republic = good, Empire = bad. It was hard to see the other side of the coin when it had never really been shown to you. Looking to her Bothan counterpart she admired the neat grooming of his fur and noted to mention it at a more private time. The Onderonian man looked very formal, seemingly knowing his part in all this. She'd never met an Ithorian before but the being held its large head regally and she looked forward to speaking to him. Looking over the Nubian man she smiled, he reminded her in some ways of her grandfather on Luxrel, her late grandfather and that made her feel a pang of sadness. Finally the senator from Kuat looked to be a very formal and elegant woman who carried herself with class, someone to admire.

    Glancing over at the Imperial representatives she felt a darkness. Several 'looked' sinister, but in her mind she felt they were too and that was a prejudice she'd have to learn to over look and work around. Amethyst, or Amy as her family called her, had a hard road ahead, but she was confident she'd find her way and make her mark.

    Location: Senate Chamber, Coruscant

    He had watched the speeches, thankfully Senator Olivetti had holographically recorded her speech before she had been due to leave Kuat.

    But unfortunately a problem had cropped up and she was currently delayed in making her way to Coruscant. An emergency that had required her attention.

    He had sent a message back to her saying that he would keep an eye on things in the chamber until she arrived. No doubt she would sadly potentially could miss a session but he would document it all so she could potentially respond to anything that came up.

    A message had gone round to whomever was chairing and the fellow Senators. It was only polite to do so:

    Dear colleagues,

    Senator Olivetti apologises but she is currently delayed due to an emergency. She will hopefully arrive as soon as possible to participate in session. Until then I have been advised to watch proceedings and will alert her to any business that requires her attention.

    Yours,

    Salvatore Morelli, assistant to Senator Giancarla Olivetti


    And so he would watch.

    And keep an eye out…

    IC: Jerrec Vaklu - Onderonian Representative
    Senate Chambers

    The flight from Onderon had been a quiet one for Senator Vaklu, the sole passenger aboard the nondescript shuttle assigned to his station. The first half of the journey had been rather productive, with him flipping through a series of reports collected by one of his aides on a number of prominent Senators he would most likely have to interact with on a semi to semi-regular basis. A typical bunch of sapients all things considered.

    But that was a few hours ago, when he had been able to occupy his restless mind with an endless tirade of facts and trivia about his fellow Senators. Special note had been made about the Anzati representative, for example. Having never met a member of that particular species, Vaklu found himself curious to see whether the seemingly exaggerated rumors told in hushed tones across the Galaxy held any basis in fact.

    Now, he found himself sighing wearily, his gaze turning towards the inscrutable tides of Hyperspace just outside the window. His thoughts had inevitably drifted back towards the single burning question he had been trying to avoid since his re-election. The same question undoubtedly facing all those elected or re-elected back into the halls of the Republic Senate. That being, What were they to do about those blasted Imps? Vaklu had been present a year ago, when the Emperor made his declaration to form a Constitutional Democracy.

    Vaklu had scoffed at the idea then. Heck, the idea still sounded like a terrible joke from one of those cheap pacifistic vids back home. Why can't we all just get along?! They would preach. Yet, somehow, he found himself in route once more to the Senate Chambers to meet with the Imperial delegation. "The Empire Party." He quickly corrected himself with a weary sigh. In his re-election campaign, he had promised the people of Onderon to play nice, to offer the olive branch of peace, so to speak. And so he would. Just didn't mean he had to enjoy doing it.

    By the time he had finally taken his seat within the Senate Chambers, it had appeared as if introductions had already begun, or at the very least first impressions made. Vaklu steady gaze fell upon each Senator in turn, starting with the Twi'lek, before moving onto the Hutt, the Ithorian, and so on, before finally landing upon the secluded Anzat himself. His expression remained passive throughout the inspection, offering nothing in the way of his own inner thoughts. The Ithorian, he decided, would be the first logical choice to speak with regarding policy advancement. Onderon had worked closely with their kind in the past, it would be only natural to strengthen that historic bond..

    Vaklu sighed again, finding himself idly stroking his neatly trimmed beard in thought. ..I really need to hire some more aides..

    On Day 5 of 10, I introduce an opportunity to anyone who has yet to sign-up.

    Lobbyists

    If you wish to play a character that may flitter around the Senate, less tied by political affiliation, party loyalties, or simple conscience, why not play a Lobbyist!

    While your direct TAGs will be considerably less than even a Senator, you have the potential to be a mover and shaker behind the scenes!

    Name:
    Picture: If available
    Interest Represented: (For example, a corporation, a charity, etc)
    Your Motto: Whether a corporate jangle or solemn vow, which is it?

    As ever, the GM does not need to approve the sheet!

    No more than two PCs a player!

    On day 7 of 10, the GM confirmed one more class of character.

    Bodyguard

    If you wish to play one of the inevitable guards that patrol the Senate, please do step up! Intrigue inevitably begets tension, and tension leads to violence...

    While your direct TAGs will be considerably similar to your Senator, inevitably, you will be cut-loose, to investigate the happenstances that occur.

    Name:
    Picture: If available
    Senator Assigned To: (Either another player's Senator, or one of your creation)
    Your Employment - Volunteer, Mercenary, or Senator Appointee

    As ever, the GM does not need to approve the sheet!
