With most of the Five Syndicates having their influence in Hutt Space, the Drellis Syndicate has been been slowly inserting their influence into the Core Worlds. For years, the Five Syndicates were unable to understand why their influence was waning on Coruscant, but sometimes it pays to simply follow the credits and see where it leads. Thus, the Five Syndicates now understand just how powerful the Drellis Syndicate's hold is on the center of the galaxy.

A few years ago, a leader took the Drellis Syndicate and rose them to a place of greatness. His name is Underlord Sho'vonn and is rumored to be a cunning, vicious Karkarodon. Through tactics of fear and ingenuity, Underlord Sho'vonn has amassed a large army of enforcers on those four planets, making most of their credits in smuggling weapons, assassination, and violent robberies. Coruscant has been a projectof the Drellis Syndicate for years. Underlord Sho'vonn is not often found on Coruscant, preferring his stronghold on Talus, but he wishes to dominate Coruscatn, so he must attend to his holdings. Anticipating reprisal from the Five Syndicates at some point, the Drellis Syndicate has been preparing for war.

Members of the Five Syndicates rarely agree 100% on anything, but in this instance, all Five Syndicates agree the Drellis Syndicate must fall...

____________________________________________________________________________________

My thought on this story is for it to be a mission pack for the Five Syndicates. This would be a faction plot to extend the influence of the Five Syndicates into Coruscant. We will work into different areas of Coruscant for influence. The amount of interest would determine the size of the mission pack and the number of planets that we attempt to gain a foothold in. The idea is that each "mission" would involve 2-3 writers.

Post here if you are interested!

This sounds like it would be a great story and I would like to get my character Scudd Jastain in on this if possible.

Awesome. Keep posting if you are interested!

We may get some Faction threads going beforehand to discover the Drellis Syndicate threat, do some threads together first as the 5S faction by ourselves. From the sound of it, we will not be alone in this faction plot.

Posted the PRELUDE to this plot HERE. Any Five Syndicate characters are welcome to join. :)

The plan is to meet, discuss the problem and then divide up into smaller groups to investigate what is going on. We can break off into other threads for that piece. Once we have completed those threads, we can apply for the plot.

My thought is just to concentrate on Coruscant instead of all of those planets--maybe hit them later. Anyway, should be fun!

I'm probably going to drag Garus into this if that's okay. I must warn you though, I fully intend in him entering with a musical number.

Love the first few posts! I have a couple more characters that are to make an appearance and then I will kick off the next round of posts. We will split the writers into two or three groups following this "intro" thread to kick off some investigating. Once those threads are completed, we will submit a faction plot for influence in Coruscant. Those threads will also need to be smaller groups working together, much like "mission packs" of the last Timeline (TL). Keep up the good posts!

@Mithias Hey you don't have to wait on me. Sorry I wasn't able to jump on this sooner, school work got ahead of me. I'd love to keep with the story though and try to participate when the meeting is concluded! Thanks for including me

My thought is to approach this as a planetary influence submission for 5S. This would mean influence in the underworld, local politicians, law enforcement, small businesses, etc. for Coruscant.

Thoughts? Suggestions?
_________________________________________________________________________________________________

Name of Faction/Organization: Five Syndicates

Description of Influence Exertion: Securing criminal influence on specific areas of Coruscant, complete with the corruption needed for effectiveness. The Five Syndicates are not attempting to muddle with the powerful political and business districts, such as the Federal District, at this time.

Missions:
Lower Market Districts (Advanced Difficulty)
1) We Need A Bigger Boat - Underlord Sho'vonn knows the Five Syndicates are coming for him. The Five Syndicates timed their attack for when he left his base of operations on Talus and was checking on assets on Coruscant. He is held up in the penthouse of a tenement building with unknown defenses and assets. But the Five Syndicates need to strike while the iron is hot. If Sho'vonn is removed, it opens the door for Five Syndicate influence in those districts.

Uscru Districts (Normal Difficulty)
2) Are you Not Entertained!? - Known as the central district for entertainment, the Five Syndicates know that this can be an influential profit center for their activities. After all, entertainment and corruption go hand in hand, right? The Five Syndicate members working on influence within the Uscru Districts know that they will have to gain the support of the many divas, heartthrobs, and megastars of the area to worm their way into this district. But they respect talent more than anything else. What can the Five Syndicates do to show that they have talent as well, wrestling influence away from the Drellis Syndicate?

The Works (Novice Difficulty)
3) Fumigated Quarters - The Works has been an industrial cesspit for centuries. However, it is still territory and real estate on Coruscant. It provides many nooks and crannies for safehouses as well as an excellent place for salvage. However, there are violent scavengers and gangs that make their home there was well. One gang, in particular, runs things for the Drellis Syndicate. Should they be displaced, it will make influence in that noxious wasteland much more manageable.

Verity District (Normal Difficulty)
4) Crossing Party Lines - With Verity situated right next to the Federal District, it has political implications for the future. One politician in particular is on the Drellis Syndicate payroll that smooths that syndicates activities in the Verity District. The Five Syndicates see the value of this asset, so are reluctant to try and eliminate him. Ideally, the Five Syndicates will find a way to gain influence with him, a rival or a different approach altogther...
