Good Evening Rebels, Jedi, Smugglers, and all who the Empire despises! It is a new chapter for the Galactic Alliance, we have come a long ways, and our future continues to brighten as we spark the light and hope in others. As many know @Minuteman75 has decided pass on the torch, but plans to be back after his hiatus (ie vacationing somewhere warm). He has done a tremendous job with the Alliance and now we must continue to build on the foundations he has set for us. @Nommie, @Wit, and @Sangga will continue to stay on the Alliance Council to help, however, Nommie and Wit will now be serving as AFLs, so be sure to congratulate them on their accomplishments so far! Also joining the Alliance Council will be @Faster Than Light with Tyler Ward, congrats to him also for all the hard work he has put into the Alliance! So some updates: The roster has been updated, those who have reached ranks beyond rebel or padawan will be added to the roster. If you think you have done enough for a promotion, please do not hesitate to apply for one. For Padawans, there are training guidelines that can help you complete your training. The GA write up has also received a face-lift and several threads have been condensed into one. In this write up you'll find the information and history of the GA, an explanation of ranks, and the Alliance Code. I am currently going to do some little blurbs about notable Alliance worlds, so they will be found in this write up. Rewards have also been updated, they offer a bit more of a choice on what to pick from and some bigger perks for those who up and over call of service with their characters. The Jedi rewards are a WIP, if you have ideas for special incentives please DM me; so far though, I am going to introduce specialized titles and offer memory crystals after so many completed threads. Mission Notes: Please note, all mission packs need to be approved by the plot admins and mods before posting sign-ups, recently we have run into issues with plots never been submitted and leaving a mess to sort later. Its not fun, so please just make sure I am aware of them and the get approved. If you have empty plot spots and want to help the faction, let me know and I can help guide you in what we are looking for to continue to build. Rebel Cells: So one thing I noticed, this idea has never really gotten off the ground, and I was never really sure if this was because it lacked interest, no one really knew about it, or if it was because it was restricted to higher ranking GA members. Please let me know if you have an interest in creating or participating; the premise would involving picking a world, setting up a base or safe house within the Empire and working out of there. Threads would obviously be OPEN/PVP or OPEN depending on the mission and assets. The more people interested, the better! Final note: If you had not had your rank changed or if you earned medals and not been added to your subaccount, let me know and I'll PM an admin to fix it.
