Who We Are
Imperial Ascension is a heavy/mature role-playing guild on the Imperial side of Ebon Hawk server.
Imperial Ascension Official Website
Imperial Ascension is primarily a collection of Imperial loyalists determined to fight back against the Eternal Empire and bring power and glory back to the Sith Empire. Our story takes place in 3636 BBY, after the Eternal Empire's invasion and subjugation of the Core Worlds, Imperial Space, and major planets in the Mid and Outer Rims. We revere the philosophies and teachings of Darth Marr regarding the cessation of traditional Sith in-fighting, and instead seek to make ourselves stronger through cooperation. Because of this, Sith and Non-Force Sensitive (NFS) individuals are held as equals among the Ascended.
Our base of operations is a Harrower-class Dreadnought acquired from the ruins of the Taerab Manufacturing Shipyards. As the Imperial Ascension's flagship, the Harrower will allow the Ascended to remain mobile and quickly travel the galaxy as the war against the Eternal Empire rages on. The ship is not only our greatest weapon, it is our home.
This guild is structured to help a character gain power and 'level up' through experience gained during role-play. Our rank system determines a character's level of power and influence, which increase through the acquisition of Guild Points (GP), tasks, and trials completed primarily In-Character. We also utilize a Master/Apprentice (for Sith) and Mentor/Protege (for NFS) system that enables lower-ranked characters to learn from or work with higher-ranked characters on the path to power. Participation in the Master/Mentor system is a requirement for moving on to the ranks of Sith Lord or Imperial Lieutenant. We understand that some prospective members may have rich backgrounds wherein they may have earned these or greater titles, and while we appreciate and encourage those backgrounds to continue to be a part of the character, we do not observe them ICly. We consider the invasion of the Eternal Empire to be a great equalizer that puts every character new to us on the same footing. Despite this, we can and do encourage those with vast experience to use it and share their experience with other members. As members of Imperial Ascension, we all rise together.
Our guild is consists of three divisions: The Conclave, The Agency and The Legion. The Conclave is for learning-centered characters, and especially those interested in Sith artifacts, science, research, or mysticism. The Agency is for political and intelligence (spy) characters, especially those focused operative work, infiltration, persuasion, interrogation, or political diplomacy. The Legion is our military force, and the division best-suited for those interested in battle strategy, combat training, brute force, and war.
What We Are Looking For
People interested in a heavy role-play environment that involves loyalty to the Empire. We look for strong, high-quality writers, but we are equally willing to help newer players as they begin their adventures in role-playing. Prospective members should be willing to go through our leveling process and work their way up through the ranks. At this time, new members will not be permitted to join the guild above Rank I.
Sith Acolytes, Imperial Guards, Spies, Ritualists, Pirates, Nobility, Swindlers, Smugglers, Mandalorians, Politicians, Operatives, Slicers, Pilots, and any other imaginative type of character that is loyal to the Empire.
Frequently Asked Questions
How often do you run events? - We run at least one major event each week, as well as several smaller events (training exercises, single-shot stories, player-driven stories, celebrations, etc.) and spur-of-the-moment impromptu RP sessions in-between.
What is your opinion on Sith vs Non-Force Sensitive (NFS) characters? - We see them as equal and give no special privilege to Sith characters over NFS characters. We have NFS characters on our leadership team and throughout our ranks, each with power equal to that of their Sith counterparts.
Do I have to start Rank I? - Yes. As stated before, we understand and appreciate that your character may have a rich background, a lot of experience, and various titles, but all new members start at the same spot. That said, we can and will work with new members to find fun and interesting ways to help even the most experienced characters progress through our rank system.
If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to a member of our leadership team.
