Please feel free to ask any questions or concerns you might have. We will do our best to answer them to the fullest. Also if you have any ideas or suggestions about anything, goals the Cartel could have, business propositions, layout of the boards, anything, you can post it here. We are open and eager to hear what you guys are thinking so that we can make this faction into an amazing story telling opportunity for all.

Sincerely,
__Hutt Leadership​

As I mentioned to you over skype.

The Who-is-who of the Cartel: List

A list compiled of the Hutt members ranking them in terms of the following:

1) Profits: the main teller of Hutt wealth!
2) Value of Assets
3) Rank
4) Influence in Hutt Politics

And, alongside that a lump of text detailing:

1) There known area's of business
2) Which Planets are they on?
3) How much influence they have on those planets
4) Acts of notoriety!


Basically, being that we are a Cartel, and must run like one, we must have a 'database' of all our active Hutt's, and what they are up to.


This leads me into:

The Council of Hutts

Attended by FL, Underlords etc, and a new rank: Councillor, for Hutts deemed to have sufficent influence to be one. We run threads, discussing Cartel matters (and boasting of profits!) and solving disputes in the Cartel!

Funny thats actually the name I used to title the thread. But yeah, that is under discussion.

As for the Council of Hutts, that we will have to take into consideration. Though we are currently thinking of ways to restructure the ranks. As we are a new faction, and have no members high enough to even reach Underlord, a Council member will need more time and effort to build up PC's. A council has always bee up in the air, but as I said there arent enough trusted members just yet, IC'ly wise.

Hutt sponsored bounties would be a good idea. Both for your folks, and to encourage Indies.

I know I'm not a member of the Hutt Cartel (yes, I see the door, I'll show myself out in a minute), but I have something I'd like to see. How about a page detailing what operations the Hutts have running on certain worlds? For example, look at this:

Tatooine:
Though outside of Hutt Space, Tatooine is under heavy influence of the Hutt Cartel. The deserts here hide many things from the galaxy, including several enterprises run by the Hutts.

-Black Market for Arms and Explosives in Mos Eisley
-Slave Distribution Point in Mos Espa Spaceport
-Minor Hutt Palace in the Dune Sea
-Captured research facility in the Jundland Wastes

That's just a thought. I'm sure if you went through with this it'd contain much more information and be neater, but that is what I'm picturing. Something that would show what operations the Hutts have on individual worlds, that way Hutt PC's know what is going on where, and it could be used as a reference page so that your people know what you already have established on these planets, and what they need to contribute to help expand the Hutts' businesses on these worlds.

Like the Retrade Assets thread?

Could we have a Promotion request thread similar to how the Jedi have it?(since I'm unsure of the specifics of increasing rank other than missions and bounties)

We are discussing this amongst ourselves until we come up with a solid system. Hopefully there will be a guideline to rank up by the next newsletter or sooner.

I'm not sure if this would fit: but maybe we could do training threads to aide in helping increase the skills of the agents.

Also perhaps a Hutt version of MM(again not sure if it would fit with the lords of crime)

I'm actually keen on this idea being pursued. The Hutts are all-for their check books being filled to the brim with credits, so it'd make sense that they'd have control over a shipyard/industrial corporation. To that point, I'd like to add a bit to Doit's proposal.

Perhaps, during their 10 years of growth and expansion, the Hutt Cartel assumes control of Rothana Heavy Engineering and make it a corporation independent of KDY, as well as expanding their starship industries. It would make sense considering Rothana is within Hutt territory, and it would add another avenue of profits for the Cartel.

I think Gambler's Utopia should be added to the worlds. It could be another spot for the cartel to rp on.

As far as missions and bounties I have a few questions and suggestions:

1.) Add some more package runs (Spice Runs, Armaments, Valuable Runs, etc.), because there is a low amount of those and they are good for starting out Hutt Cartel Prospects. In addition, you could also have them leveled between low to high Cartel ranks for varying difficulties.

2.) Awhile the bounties are fine, I don't know much about them. Why does a particular individual have a bounty on their head, is their kill essential to the Cartel's progress, are they behind on their bills, etc.?

1) I'll pm Gaja or hurricane a package run mission (since Borgeye has a few missions up). Plus I've got an idea for one.
2) The bounties usually state if they're wanted dead or alive. Also, in the description it states what they did to warrant a bounty.

@Silv/Doit That is a great idea, and Rothana is an ideal location. I will bring it p and see what happens. Great idea guys!

@Doit Another good idea. Gambler's Utopia would be a suitable place to RP on for all Hutt characters.

@Treb More missions are currently in the making to cater to Prospects. And the bounties work as a wanted list for the Cartel. Each individual has done a crime against the Cartel that cannot go unpunished. Therefore they are placed on the list so that a member can pursue their punishment.

Guys these are amazing suggestions. Keep them coming you guys are great!!! And we will work on each of them individually to see them come to life.

Hutts have laws, as you hopefully know, however we have no system in the cartel to reflect that. So, I suggest a Court made up of the Hutts, with an enforcement body of 'Hunters' to ensure punishments are meted out.

In case you're considering sub-factions, I was thinking having a private security firm (cough mercenaries) similar to ME2's Blue Suns would be a nice way to emphasize a more "military" side of the Hutt Cartel. As it stands, most of the Hutt forces seem to just be independently minded contractors, and not part of an entire organization working for the Hutts. These guys could both form paramilitary shock troops which have a unifying command structure and uniform as well as bring minor starfleets for rapid deployments, while also serving as a "legitimate business" within non-Hutt space.
