RECRUITMENT IS NOW OPEN AGAIN
I am pleased to be able to announce the birth of a new faction: the Tartaran Empire. This has been in the works for almost a month now, and we're finally ready to begin accepting applications. We are currently based on the Illusive server (18.104.22.168:4242) where we have set up a base. If you believe that you have what it takes to be a part of the Tartaran Empire, don't hesitate to apply!
The faction is currently led by Emperor Incap. The current leadership is:
1st Marshal: Chevalleis
2nd Marshal: Nauvran
3rd Marshal: Vacant spot
Senatorial Head Speaker: Vacant spot
Now a little about how our faction works. The Tartaran Empire is a democratic imperium with an emphasis on acquiring military, economic and political power through maintaining a large and organised fleet as well as forging alliances and relationships with those around it.
“Extend one hand in friendship, but arm the other.”
The Tartaran Empire’s main asset is the Imperial Navy, but other sections are an important part of maintaining the faction's status:
“One sword keeps another in the sheath.”
The Imperial Navy is the main military asset of the Tartaran Empire that is governed by the Marshal Board, the top 3 military leaders. They are responsible for the defence of the Empire’s borders, responding to threats and maintaining peace. While they ultimately respond to the throne, the Marshal Board themselves carry a lot of influence in the Imperial Senate. The navy is divided into two fleets, Chronus and Hyperion, with one located at Tartarus, the home planet, and the other situated at Outpost Cerberus where it can effectively respond to threats or carry out commands.
The following ranks exist within the military:
“Pity those who forget the blood and bone that was poured into the foundation of their houses.”
Responsible for constructing everything the Empire needs in terms of ships, interstellar outposts and providing the materials and resources needed to keep the machine oiled, the Industry section is vital to the existence of the Imperial Order. They make sure that the Imperial ships will emerge victorious from any challenges they might meet. If you wish to join this section you must show examples of previous works. If you do not have any examples to show, you can join another section in the meantime while we assess your skills.
“Ships and soldiers may keep us safe, but never forget what keeps them moving.”
The Commerce section is the economic power behind the Empire, and responsible for bringing in the revenue and establishing the trade lines that keep money flowing in the Empire’s coffers. The Commerce section isn’t made entirely of traders and merchants however, as they also have a private armed security sub-section that is responsible for escorting the trade vessels. They are the economical drive of the faction, providing not only the credits, but also raw materials that our factories need. The merchants of Tartaran Empire also own a private militia, these are highly disciplined fighters, who guard the trading vessels against players and AI alike.
“The Pen is mightier than the Sword.”
The Politics section is the silver tongue of the Empire. Responsible for maintaining the relationships between the Empire and other factions, the Politics section is also in charge of forging alliances, establishing embassies and deciding the future of the Empire. If you wish to form a diplomatic relationship with the Tartaran Empire, please contact Emperor Incap (me) for details.
The Imperial Democratic System:
The Tartaran Empire’s political system is made up of the Imperial Throne, the Marshal Board and the Senate:-
-The Imperial Throne is the highest seat in the Empire, and the ultimate responsibility. The position of Emperor is decided from the 5 Houses of Tartarus, the Noble families who founded the Empire. Every 4 months, the Senate vote on which House they want in charge of the entire Empire, the House that wins has its leader elevated to the title of Emperor. The responsibility of the Emperor comes down to the making sure the Empire has a clear course and goal, and can make absolute decisions. To further this, if the Senate is in a dead lock over what action to take over an issue, the Emperor may choose to forego the entire voting process and make the decision for them.
-The Marshal Board is made up of the top 3 leaders of the Imperial Navy and are responsible for its defence and maintaining the peace. The Marshal Board serve as mediators and advisors to the Emperor and Senate and act as the judges during trials. Effectively, they are the law in the Empire and have the power to depose an Emperor, but only if it is a unanimous vote, and if it passes, each member of the Board must resign their commission and hand the position over to their successor. A member of the Marshal Board CANNOT be the Emperor at the same time however. If a Marshal is voted in, he must hand his former position to his successor.
-The Senate represents the normal citizenry of the Empire. It is the Senate’s responsibility to handle votes and act as the jury during trials. The Senate’s top speaker is the head of Politics Section.
-The Houses are the nobility of the Tartaran Empire. They have no real influence in the politics, except for when a House is voted into the Imperial Throne or if they heavily influential in one of the other sections such as the Military, Commerce or Industry. They are made up of; House Incap, House Chevalleis, House Nauvran, House Dolovo and House Kiwi. Members of the Empire who exhibit great loyalty and make grand contributions may be invited to join one of the Houses.
With all this said, here are some entry requirements should you wish to join the Empire:
1. You must be mature. It is very important that you are able to work together with other members of your faction as well as follow orders. Disruptive behaviour is also forbidden. This way we maintain a high morale and unity. It is also highly advisable that you are able to communicate clearly with others as this makes collaboration a lot easier.
2. See point 1. Really, that's all. We can assist you with various things, from building skills to combat aptitude (to an extent). All you need is a good attitude.
We have our own site at http://tartaranempire.enjin.com/home. All members are expected to register on the site. It is where we communicate with each other outside the game and the different sections have their own forums.
