Leader, Coder, Modeler, Animator, Rigger and Skinner of the Star Wars Empire at War Forces of Corruption mod, Knights of the Old Empire
nope it's way too small for that. It's a comms/admin station. Instead of standard starbases the Unity has two stations. Administration and Shipyard. They each provide to be later named rewards.
Yes just that. they are just like the Je'daii but they like the Jedi and Sith they lead the military.
The Knights use the Sith name to destroy the evil behind the name and they take the role of the Jedi in the galaxy except don't lie to themselves about what they are doing. they also let people have a life outside of the order without fear of being punished for happiness like the Jedi. This also causes members of the Jedi to join the Knights and for parents to choose to give their kids to the Knights so they can be trained and still communicate and visit during training and later return home upon becoming a full Knight.
This is all for Unity Era though. This Knights Era is all about them being members of the Republic and fighting Darth Sidious and Omega while secretly using the remains of the Star Forge and the Infinity Engine amoung other rakata relics that the Knights have from the copied Rakata Archives to rebuild the Star Forge and break from the Republic to form the Galactic Unity from the broken Alliance.
They don't hate the Jedi but they know that the Jedi way cannot fully realize their hope of a peaceful galaxy. The Knights seek the Force to be united while the Jedi only seek their own version of balance by completely destroying the Dark Side and lying to themselves by calling themselves peacekeepers while being the ones in charge of most of the Republic military.
The Knights seek to dissolve both the Order of Sith Lords and the Order of Jedi and end the eternal chain of wars caused by the two orders. They do this by killing the Sith Lords and letting the Jedi's own code be their downfall.
And they basically form a protectorate union of systems who all govern themselves. Systems willingly end up joining them. But this is all in the Unity era 20 years after this. Right now is just the Knights ending the Clone Wars and breaking from the Republic.
You should see the Zann logo but the name in the dropbox should say Alliance. it could just be a bug though.
The main plot points that take place to alter the timeline are mentioned above. but for the most part it is a faction of Revan era Honorable and peaceful Sith Lords/Troopers and Mandalorians who time jump into the Clone Wars and join the war as a part of the Republic to destroy the evil Sith and rebuild the Sith Order as protectors. They rebuild and modify old vessels for visual effect and in the end rebuild the mighty Star Forge and break from the ever corrupt Republic and oppressive Jedi.
Omega fleet is a faction of the CIS led by the droid Admiral Omega and tasked with ending the rebellion within the CIS and destroy the Sith Knights to restore the Rule of Two.
The Alliance of Independent Systems are pirates, crime lords and governments allied to defend opressed or exploited systems from the Clone Wars. Employing merchant vessels and private defense fleets.
The Alliance uses mostly frigates and this one is their faction leader modified ship. It's not much different than the Aggressor's mega ion and plasma cannons in vanilla FOC.
Seeing that the other factions use large ships with tons of guns while the Alliance uses small much weaker ships, this works out well for the re-balancing and scraping i'm doing right now.
Well it's loads stronger than the Heavy Ion Cannon but much smaller than the Malevolence Ion Pulse which i like to call Mega Ion Cannon.
It's like the Hyper-Velocity Gun and Mass Driver. They're basically the same thing but different size.
They broke from the Republic after the ousting of Palpatine as Sidious. It was only to be temporary but in that time they were selling ships to both the Republic and Black Alliance. After the Clone Wars were over Kuat flourished without restrictions and now supply ships to anyone willing to pay. But some designs are contracted to their buyers. like the Imperator or Venator for the Republic and the Harrowing and Justice Star Destroyers among a few others for the Unity. Kuat also has it's own extensive fleet of Executor, Imperator, Victory, Venator and several other massive ships making keeping it's Independence easy
The knights decimated the Hutt Cartels and the Black Sun so Tatooine and Nul Hutta are part of the Unity. But i get the actual question. No the Unity is a choice and there is plenty of free worlds or minor organizations still around that are not involved with the Republic or Unity.
Some of these would be the Chiss Ascendancy and Kuat. but both the Republic and Unity still enforce inter-galactic laws of sentient rights, anti-piracy and counter-terrorism.
It's just the one i like using in skirmish. but the factions do have there own colors in the GC.
It's hard to make a full ring without making it have several hundred particles.
It also looks fuller the longer it's out.
18BBY-20BBY to be exact, not long before ep3.
The Knights are all from the Jedi Civil War era and then frozen in time for nearly 3000 years to be awakened during the Clone Wars and change destiny.
Sith Knights sounded better than Force Lords. The idea is just somthing i've always thought about. The Jedi have rules that force alot of people to become Sith the moment they go against the Jedi. and the Sith are usually crazy or killing those who could be sane. So i take the best of both. The control of the Jedi and the Power of the Sith.
Really every hero story shows that love is the key to untold power. Luke's generation of Jedi were much better than those that came before.
And no the Vong are not going to be showing up anytime soon.
The Order of Sith Knights don't follow the structure of the Order of Sith Lords. They have branches and agencies for different types of Knights and no learner(Acolyte) enters battle in the war.
It's been 20 years. Any world joining the Unity was forced to get rid of any and all military power so none of the CIS worlds would have droids. And the republic is a primarily Clone army so they have little need above security forces. I may make some pirates minor factions use them
The Black Sun, Hutt Cartel and most other crime factions were wiped out when the Black Alliance crumbled after the Clone Wars. Only a few minor pirate factions exist within the Republic and non-aligned space.
The third faction is still undecided. No single faction left in the galaxy can rival the Republic and Unity. I know a few of the bad guys for it i want to add to form a third faction but i may hold off on them until the third part of the mod.
There is usually never a light side to any war. its usually a war of varying greys. everyone has good and bad reasons for war but no one is in the right.

I don't have a full list of systems planed out yet exactly. I know i want the Unity to have the old Sith Space along with Mandalorian Space and most of the Hutt systems. I plan on making a real list soon.
They joined the Unity under the leadership of Ventress as one of the many Nightmothers and Bo-Katan Kryze as The Mandalore. Mandalore is also the location of some of the best training facilities while Dathomir serves as one of the many worlds used to train Knights in certain aspects such as stealth and survival along with Force abilities used by the Nightsister Clans.
The truth that Palpatine was Darth Sidious and leader of both the Republic and Separatists. Some systems no longer trusted the Republic, CIS or even the Jedi. Some of these worlds joined together to form the Alliance of Free Systems while others stayed alone.
Kuat, Mon Calamari, Onderon, Naboo, Sullust, Serrenno and others.
The Shan line is in truth the line of Revan. but after 3000 years of sons and daughters the name would've died out in the very large amount of descendants. (The Old Republic game is 3000 years before A New Hope and 300 years after Knights of the Old Republic)
And yes Ahsoka (Since she's not following the Jedi code anymore) has married her almost BF from the show Lux Bonteri from Onderon. Ethan Bonteri is there son.
Bane himself was a student of Revan and sought an end to the cycle of the Sith's many empires falling to in-fighting. Drake being the real apprentice of Revan means Bane would respect him and the unity Sith and the Knight's ultimate goal to let the Jedi destroy themselves.
The Korriban Academy is gone but a new Temple Tower was built in Revan City and serves as the Headquarters of the Knights and training center.
The Valley of the Dark Lords is the place for one of the final trials to become a Lord-Commander within the Order. One must battle and defeat one of the Dark Lords and any of the trials within and seal the spirit away in a holocron that is then shot out past the east rim of the galaxy. The tomb is then safely destroyable. There are very few Lord-Commanders due to the risks involved.
No. most of the major Sith worlds have become colonies of the Sith Knights. Korriban is their capitol with reclamation of the tombs and temples along with building a city.
Dromund Kaas now hosts a thriving colony while Zoist and Yavin IV are just building one.
No it's not. i've expanded the list recently but i'd like a few more
The Sidious angle in being used for the overall plot but not in the usual way. I know i want to involve the Sith Holocron from FOCs campaign and the Sith Army and a few things from the other great Dark Lords.
It's twenty years after the clone wars. The Alliance shattered with infighting between the crimelords wanting power. The worlds who joined for protection went with Seras Fang to form the Unity. All that remained were the criminal factions who returned to their old ways. Over the twenty year gap the Unity has waged and the Knight decimated the Hutt race and forced all other factions into Republic or neutral space.
The holdouts of the CIS have also been hunted and defeated by the Republic and Jedi cause that's all they had to do the last twenty years besides rebuild. Most of the CIS factions endded up rejoining the Republic or joining the Unity.
A list of major Unity, Republic and Neutral worlds is still being devised. But alot of power resides in the needed non-aligned/both-sided worlds like Kuat and Muunilinst.
I plan on a third faction but atm it's not even in production. But i don't plan on the Vong coming for awhile if at all.I need to learn more about them before i decide if i want them
I just forgot to include Crimson in that list. He is one of the heroes for Omega.
He's not a commander. Sidious would never let another fully-fledged Sith live. He's now a agent/assassin (Like the Dark Stalker Starkiller) He is is in control of Mandalore with will be a part of the Alliance storyline when you free Mandalore.
Crimson will likely use his stealth fighter again.
I'll have to take these under consideration. I don't know how important the young Senator would've become without the Rebellion. The Unity and Republic both stand for freedom and peace. the Unity just has a better (Yet slightly tyrannical) way of doing it.
The others may be there. Tarkin is gone. He was corrupt and supported Sidious's secrets. So he was executed by the Knights along with others who knew and supported Sidious.
Thrawn no. He would likely have been stuck on the planet for a much longer time and even if someone found him he would likely join the Unity due to their desire for a united and orderly galaxy.
