INTRODUCTION

The Sith attacks across the galaxy and particularly at Ryloth have left the Free Worlds Alliance rattled. The involvement of a Star Destroyer was particularly troubling, especially for smaller sectors without their own ships of a similar caliber. Even the residents of the Core Worlds are troubled: nobody knows how many similar assets the Sith can field. In the worst case, a single sector might not stand a chance. That's why some politicians in the New Republic and the Free Worlds Alliance are now vying for the establishment of an extraterritorial fleet. Composed of parts of sectors' defense fleets, this fleet would serve as the Free Worlds' first response to a massive attack, like the one led by the Sith. This motion was dubbed "Sentinel Initiative".

The reception of the Sentinel Initiative is mixed at best. Many people are concerned that the establishment of such a fleet could lead the Galaxy down the trail that was blazed by the Old Republic and Galactic Empire one and a half century ago. But the danger is real, and many other people are willing to compromise the ideals of the Free Worlds in favor of security. Among them is Nykoria Tallis, one of the many Jedi who witnessed the cruelty the Sith were capable of. If the Sentinel Initiative passes, then the Free Worlds will be better prepared for a possible emergence of another Sith Empire. If not, then only time would tell how free those worlds remain.

That's why Nykoria tries to convince her fellow Jedi Guardians and any sympathizers to support the establishment of the Sentinel Fleet. It's not up to the Jedi if it gets established. But if they could help deter the Sith on this scale, they'd have more time to track them down and end that menace without starting a full-scale war. Although the Jedi and their allies wouldn't be leading the fleet or deciding on its moves, they could try to help the galaxy feel a little safer.


MISSIONS

Mission names aren't final. More missions can be added over time. Feel free to suggest your own thread ideas related to this plot. All threads will be "Ask", but any sort of participants are welcome (non-Jedi included). If you think it fits your character; just express your interest here. I'll set the threads to duos by default, but each thread can involve more people. If a thread ends in a failure, it may result in some other thread as an attempt to mitigate the damage. If anyone feels like DMing any of the threads or act as opposition, you're more than welcome. Threads will be death-disabled, but a character now can't die without the writer's permission anyway. NPCs (even important ones, like the Senator) are cannon fodder though.

1. Coruscant: Let Others Do Your Politics [COMPLETED]

A popular senator from Chandrila is a staunch proponent of the New Republic and the Sentinel Initiative. Recently, the Senator and their nearest and dearest received threats that encouraged them to reconsider their stance. The Senator didn't yield, but there is a risk that the perpetrators might try to assassinate the Senator before a scheduled discussion on the matter of the Sentinel Fleet. Protect the Senator as he makes his way to Coruscant to make the speech, while another group of rangers stays behind to guard the family.

Participants: @Izel Thral & @Carrick & @Reiel Mal Crowholde

2. Chandrila: Not an Empty Threat

The ranger team protecting the Senator's family sends a distress call. You arrive to the site and find the team wiped out, and the family missing. Evidence indicates that mercenaries were involved, but one of the rangers was killed with a lightsaber. The trail can't have gone cold yet. Rush to the site and chase after the kidnappers to save the Senator's family: either to secure the trust in us, or as a way to pay respects.

Participants: @Eisa Wex & @Fiach Dubh

3. Fondor: Forging Bonds [COMPLETED]

The Sentinel Fleet will need a base where it would be maintained. Luckily, Nykoria is in good graces with a corporate CFO from Fondor. More importantly, a Sith attack on Ryloth has made the idea of having a fast-response team backed up by the Jedi all the more appealing to other corporate executives. An even larger Sentinel Fleet could mean an even more lucrative contract. The final negotiations will take place aboard the personal ship of Phyllis Vasser. Take part in the negotiations and ensure there are no interruptions like an attack or a sabotage.

Participants:
@Nykoria Tallis & @Dasi Vemm
@Gale & @Jago Haaldin
@Cyrus Anvari & @Alyse TiVarnus

Sign Izel up for Thread 1. Also up to help wherever else she's needed.

Would it be okay if my Mando (@Reiel Mal Crowholde) participates in one of the missions? Like in thread #1 as a hired (extra) guard? She needs more experience for character growth. :)

Yo Jago is up to join in on any of these if needed! I'm starting to think I should just officially join the Jedi at this point. I've got a thread idea in mind to accomplish that but I need to iron out the details first.

@Topher Ridge, the decision is yours, of course. But you don't need to be a Jedi to be a Guardian ;) Matukai are cool and add diversity to the dichotomy of the Force users. Especially since your write-up has just been approved.

As for the threads, you're welcome to join any thread you like (just let me know which), or we'll keep you in reserve. Your call. Also, DM and opposition roles are still open, in case someone wants in.

I for one would love to see more people in Catberts and my thread. The more the merrier, especially if someone is up to no good.
Yeah sure I'll hop in and help with possible aggressive negotiations haha.

@Topher Ridge, @Dmitri, I'd be glad if you both joined #3 Forging Bonds, maybe even in my stead. I don't see Nykoria doing much other than staying close to VIPs and making sure they're safe/taking them to the escape pods, should that be necessary. You two, on the other hand, could secure the yacht from any possible attackers and try to help @Dasi Vemm, who seems to have gotten herself aboard the enemy ship.

P.S. I might've taken on more threads than I can handle at the moment, so you'd also be helping me that way. OR you'd free me up for being a DM of that thread and trying to stop you. Just let me know, and I'll add you to the list and write a post for Kori.

P.P.S. Another idea I just had is to have the raiders succeed and take the yacht to their base. That way, @Judge Brahman and @Jago Haaldin could be the cavalry coming to the rescue (all in the same thread).

Let me know what you think! Tagging @darkrei9n as well.

I like the backup route in PSS.
