Sector Rangers Overview Not everyone is grateful for the blanket of security that being an Imperial world provides. Many associate the Imperial uniform with the Sith Order, making it almost a valiant thing to hide those that try to hide from Imperial law enforcement. To put it bluntly, the Imperial police is overstretched and suffers from bad press. To make sure lawbreakers meet with fitting judgment, the senate with the little power it has left funded the creation of a seemingly neutral intergalactic ranger service; Sector Rangers. They are not held to Imperial military hierarchy and can thus arrest even those of the Sith Order if they break Imperial law, all in an effort to decrease the want for rebellion by limiting the occasions where the Empire is a general boogeyman. As the reach of the Empire is encompassing the entire galaxy so will a ranger hunt down a fugitive even into the Unknown Regions. There is -however- one catch and that is that the Sector Rangers have no authority to operate on the planet Coruscant, for the Imperial Republic did not want these barely literate strict rule-of-law types anywhere near the muddy works of its own politics. Since their inception two-hundred years ago, Sector Rangers have been responsible for investigating and bringing to justice the worst of the worst- slavers and kidnappers, high profile smugglers, inter-galactic organized crime members, and murderers and serial killers of all kinds. Generally working alone or in pairs as they chase criminals all across the galaxy, their exploits have lead to the Rangers becoming an almost mythical organization in the public eye, and the "Lone Ranger" has been the subject of dozens of holo-dramas. Unfortunately for modern Rangers, that sort of public sentiment hasn't completely freed them from their public association with the Empire and in the Outer Rim they are merely viewed as low-pay bounty hunters. Organization To become a ranger is relatively easy as all they do is a background check, but then the pay is horrible, your life most certainly only short-lived and the only promotion you’d see is in the assignment to more Coreward or otherwise noteworthy sectors. Only those of true renown and selfless devotion can become a ‘Marshal’ as a sign of respect to their accomplishments, yet a real benefit to this title there is not and in the past sixty years no ranger has lived long enough to claim the title. Their funding allows only for a personnel ceiling of 400, which means there's never more than 300 active rangers in the field. One can become a Marshal only after they reach level 4 and have brought at least 10 player characters to justice. Player Ranks Lvl 1 - Lvl 4 Ranger Lvl 4 Marshal Rangers come from all walks of life, all species, all backgrounds, and they all have different styles. But the Ranger more often than not has to figure it out on his own, do the right thing, and he has to bring his quarry to court. Rangers pride themselves on bringing in such a high number of criminals alive and unharmed, upholding the law and holding themselves to a standard matched by few. They follow their own investigations through from start to finish, never leaving business unfinished or a score unsettled. They are the shining example of Law Enforcement, untouched by corruption or politics, and existing for one purpose and one purpose only - Justice. What can a Ranger do? While cheap holo-flicks show Rangers commandeering entire local fleets in search of their enemies, the reality is that bureaucratic red tape limits their acquisition powers or slows the process down so much as to be nearly useless, and a Ranger is often assigned only a lowly liaison or escort to guide him about. So while Rangers can always request the assistance, military or police, of whatever system they're working in, more often than not a Ranger is on his own. Roster OOC Player - Character Name - Rank @Ecclessey - Narr Noft - Ranger @TWD26 - Norro Tanwa - Ranger @Real Russian - Lex Ringo - Ranger Intent We've always had dubious bounty hunters and last timeline even saw "Staff SWAT" as a response to the ever increasing and forthgoing crime spree of its members. This NPC Organization is meant to give the community back its defenders of the law (whichever law that will be), where a Sector Ranger can plot investigations and give the perps a real sense of dread for the rangers are coming for you! In addition I think it's a nice extra story reason to use the bounty system besides being a notorious credit-hoarding Mandalorian. And lets be honest: We need a Chuck Norris in space.
