Cahnsu is a heavy roleplaying guild located on the Star Forge server of SWTOR.
We are a lore-abiding guild with themes surrounding conquest, exploration and rekindling glory to a dying political banner. The guild in-character is the powerbase of a Darth among the Sith Empire. Members will find plenty of opportunities for character development through a variety of plots and deployments.
The guild welcomes all Sith, Imperial military personnel, Mandalorians, and underworld denizens. However, with the territory of the guild being a powerbase all members need to keep in mind their characters must be willing to adhere to the chain of command as Cahnsu falls beneath the hand of another ultimately.
War embroiled the planet of Cahnsu long before its introduction to the Sith Empire. With a piecemeal confederacy holds together the kingdoms carved into its land. The politically unstable world maintained itself in such a fashion for two centuries. At the pinnacle sits House Ente who birthed a holy king. By his hand, the other banners forged a council of supplicant kingships — all who maintained civilizations vying for the Holy Throne.
Be it through assassination or marriage; their hunger for maximum power felt unending. Then, within acceptable means, they would continue adding weight to the scales of a reason for their ascension through lavish social affairs and military demonstrations. Ultimately putting their kingdoms at risk to threats forged by one another in unspoken terms so that the Holy King and his consort would land in their lap.
When the Sith Empire arrived, they shattered the Confederacy. The Holy King transformed into a pawn in a grand scheme of occupation. Installing a governor to oversee the affairs of the planet, they allow the original rulership to remain so long as they do not contest the roots cultivated by the Empire.
Should war ever break out, the advanced technology of the Sith Empire compared to Cahnsu highlights a vulnerability. While the planet enters a Golden Age through the combined adaptation and integration of technology into their existing pursuits, no question exists on who has the upper hand.
Out of character, we are a tight-knit environment where everyone primarily focuses on creating stories surrounding a Sith powerbase, its members and potential challenges not only towards expanding its power but forces that may challenge it.
Characters can advance within the internal chain of command through participation in the various stories found within the guild. For Cahnsu, heavy roleplay implies that we roleplay as much as possible with one another. Plots and events are not a reliable source for roleplay but supplementary to what roleplay happens in the downtime. Some scenarios, for example, are a slow burn and there will be events and activities that occur in between to keep everyone busy.
Drama isn't welcome, period. Anyone who brings it around will see it promptly nipped in the bud. With that said, it is essential to understand that IC actions will have consequences. Therefore it is crucial that we maintain the established knowledge that what happens in character does not blur into out of character. Meaning just because your character is in trouble does not equate to you, the player, being in trouble.
Sith | Those holding titles of Lordship or lower may find the room of growth within Cahnsu attractive. Its leader, a reputable Darth among their kind provides those who earn their stay resources for research and other reputation building tasks. While Darths welcome as well, they will not have any claim above their chain of command, meaning their title is drained of power and rank while involved in Cahnsu.
Imperials | All military personnel and civilians are welcome to take on endeavours within Cahnsu. Those with training from any branch of the Imperial militant forces are welcome, especially naval and ground units. Diplomats, traders, and staff for janitorial, mechanical and kitchen work are all vital, too.
Mandalorians | Often a contract-based relationship, Mandalorians tend to appear in Cahnsu because of its lucrative nature. The further the endeavour reaches into the unknown ends of the galaxy, the more an increase comes to the cut of their pay.
Underworld Contacts | Denizens of the Underworld who act as spies, smugglers, thieves and assassins would find a cushy spot on the payroll within Cahnsu.
