Passion and Serenity are one.
I gain power by understanding both.
In the chaos of their battle, I bring order.
I am a shadow, darkness born from light.
The Force is united within me.

At the start of Jedi involvement in the Mandalorian Wars the Jedi Council knew that the cost of life to the Jedi would be inconceivable. Kreia came to the council with a plan, she would bring a youngling to Revan as his padawan in the hopes that Revan would back out of the war to protect and train his padawan. This plan would prove to be a failure to the Jedi when the boy proved to be a skilled fighter and fast rising commander who would become known to the Mandalorians as Drake the Dragon of Althir after using the force to enslave and attack with a Krayt Dragon that was deployed by the Mandalorian Commander Jax to defeat a Republic Strike Team. The two commanders would become rivals, meeting on the battlefield many times.

Drake would go on to win many battles against the Mandalorians before meeting a bounty hunter named Kyra who was a product of a forbidden union of a Sith Apprentice and Jedi Padawan. She would spark Drake's curiosity in deeper understanding the Force and the pointless schism of Dark and Light.

At the Battle of Malachor V, Drake's Commandos would utterly defeat a battalion of Mandalorians under the command of Jax and decide to save his rival from the Mass Shadow Generator. Jax pledged him forces to Drake instead of following his bothers in exile after the Mandalorian Surrender.

After Revan's return as a Sith Lord, Drake and Revan devised a plan in which Drake would create an faction to take the place of the Order of Sith Lords after the defeat of the Republic and defend against the coming True Sith Empire of Dromund Kaas. The Order of Sith Knights was born, a faction of Sith devoted to peace, honor and the protection of the galaxy who was also willing to do whatever needed to be done to preserve that peace. Drake and Kyra with an apprentice each made up the Order while there were also the Knight-Troopers who were the republic trooper and the Knight-Crusaders who were all loyal to Drake. These forces along, with their new flagship the Immortal, made up the Order of Sith Knights.

Those dreams would be shattered when Malak betrayed Revan and seemingly killed his master. Enraged, Drake and his Knights attacked the Star Forge with the hope of taking over the Empire and resuming Revan's plan. The attack allowed the Knights to download the encrypted data of the Infinite Empire but Drake was gravely wounded by Malak who was empowered by fallen Jedi. The Knights fled the station with heavy damage to the Immortal and Drake nearly dead.

The Knights were driven from Sith Space and escaped the Republic. They used Rakatan tech within their ship to enter a form of suspended animation while their last ally Darth Treya hid their location from the force until they could rise again and fulfill their role in the galaxy and unite the Force.

Four millennia later a pirate captain named Fang would be fleeing from the CIS flagship Invisible Hand in an asteroid field after freeing slaves from the Separatist only to discover and awaken the crew of the Immortal.

Awakened, the Sith Knights returned to Lehon only to find the ruined remains of the Star Forge. Now without a perpose, the Knights acknowledging the threat of the Two Sith Order and their Confederacy, began a campaign of guerrilla attacks on the CIS which quickly gained the attention of the Jedi. General Skywalker and the 501st were tasked with locating who was attacking the Seps and get their aid with in an attack on Pamment, this led to a joint campaign against the CIS which started the friendship between Anakin and Drake and ended in Drake gravely wounding and capturing Dooku.

After the battle Anakin returned to Coruscant with the Knights to meet with the Council. Supreme Chancellor Palatine was there to welcome the heroes of Pammant and invite Drake to a private meeting before the council. In the sealed Senate Chambers, Drake revealed he had ripped the identity of the Dark Lord from Dooku's mind before he was able to escape and was about to reveal it to the Jedi. Sidious commanded Drake, as the Dark Lord of the Sith, to kill the other Knights along with Dooku and become his apprentice. At the same time, Kyra was standing in the Jedi Council Chambers with playing the live conversation to the members. Palpatine was soon captured by the Jedi.

In a few short days many things happened. Dooku was freed from the Immortal and Palaptine was freed from the Jedi Temple by his personal assassin Crimson, Padme Amedala was voted as the new Supreme Chancellor, and lastly, The Senate gave the Knights rights within the Republic as both a member government in control of the Horuset System and the Order of Sith Knights were grated powers to command Republic Forces with equal status as the Jedi.
Plagued by rebellions within the CIS along with the betrayal of Dooku, Sidious builds the Assassination and Command Droid Omega to reform the Confederacy and restore the Rule of Two.

In the wake of Palpatine's betrayal coming to light, members of both the CIS and Republic left becoming Free Systems. These systems would be prey to the CIS and sanctioned by the Republic. The Black Fang Pirate leader Fang - who had discovered the Knights - joined several Free Systems to oppose the CIS and Republic. Fang used connections to the Hutts and Black Sun to stop their fighting and used friendships with bounty hunters to make them work together. This new union would join with the Death Watch to free Mandalore from Sidious's assassin Crimson who had been subjugating them since he slew Dutchess Satine as Darth Maul months prior. This would spark a many systems to rally with Fang and become the Black Alliance of Free Systems.

With the Republic and Jedi focused on the war with the CIS, Drake and the Sith Knights begin rebuilding Old Sith Space. Studying the now decrypted archives of the Infinite Empire, Recovering the remains of the Star Forge and using the now much larger Infinite Engine unearthed on Dromund Kaas to build a new Star Forge and resume their mission to bring Order and Unity to the Force.

Thank You

Land is not a priority right now. honestly it's just an annoyance that's making me not want to do more for the mod. With that in mind i will be focusing in refining some ore of the graphics and moving on to the GC without land.

So land will be just left out of the mod. it's boring to me, i lack models needed, i lack the ability to model/animate land units, i can't change the game to play like any landbased RTS i like (Which is very few) i'm not a great map making, various bugs with the systems i want to add, and lastly i just hate this game's land soooooo much.

Thanks :)
And if ur leaving land out, will the AI still work in GC?

damn that's a good point that i had actually forgotten.

Reply Good karma+2 votes

When you play land skirmish, there are new land units, couldn't u implement them into GC, and wouldn't that get the AI to work

And as for heroes, most do have existing models?

Reply Good karma Bad karma0 votes
EmperorNiko Creator

I have stand-in models for only a few of the heroes.

And the land units you're talking about is the old version of the mod. i threw that out and started over to better balance out and clean up the mod while getting rid of all the crashes that the old version has.

It'd b really unfortunate if there's no AI because it is already such a beautiful mod, but it'd b nice to have an aggressive AI

Well at the moment the only proven space-only GC method that works is the method used by the Legacy at War mod which makes some units "Freighters" while this is good idea for the Black Alliance, it's not that practical for either Omega or the Knights. I may make the star bases actually provide income as to force to AI to get money.

Reply Good karma+1 vote

Could add basic infantry, like clones, mandos, battledroids and neo mandos and barracks, surely that would make AI work?

An army of just infantry just sounds stupid and useless

Shame, would love an aggressive AI
