Until the end of May, all unique faction ideas will be accepted, provided that they (1) fill in the form and post it in this thread and (2) have the minimum requirement of 4 unique writers.

This means that all the ideas you guys have been having, now is the time to give them a good push and a good shove forward, as there will be no monthly trial before you get your forum and everything.

Although you will get an easy start, you the factions that will come to be in this rotation will be expected to keep their activity up, and will be removed by the check ins of July (or before that) if they fail to do so.

Happy faction time

And to state the obvious; Staff holds the right to deny applications based on past group and group attempt behavior.

HistoryThe Church of the Sun was established on the world of Empress Teta, a planet that enjoys peace and neutrality in its procted status in the Deep Core. This world, in the aftermath of the Galactic Civil War, turned to religious having seen the powers of the Force at work, but with no reasonable explanation left. Simply, it was given to a blending of science and belief - and from it the Church of the Sun was left in its wake.
Founded by a man named Kazu Hirata, a second-generation Atrisian and its first High Archon, the Church of the Sun began as little more as a small cult on Teta within the disenchanted population of the lower and middle classes of society. Its popularity sprung up as its residents reported considerable spiritual fulfilment and finally an explanation for the magical abilities that were seen on display during many wars throughout history but no real Force presence to speak of. This, in turn, raised its popularity and gave it credibility to be expanded out to other worlds. However, it didn't really take off all that much outside of Teta for the longest time.
Fifteen years ago, however, the Church took off quickly off world in certain places nearby the planet. At this point the Church began something of an advertising and expansion campaign, attempting to turn people in high places from neighbouring worlds and star systems to their cause. In a large number of cases, this was unsuccessful, but in a few places it worked well such as Rendili and Alderaan. It is at this point that the Church has decided to activate that plan and move forward, attempting to become a major Galactic power surrounding itself with a military and an Empire.
With the death of Teta's Emperor, Akasha Aicelys, his son has taken the throne of Teta. Taeryn Aicelys, an extremely devout follower of the Church, is now the Emperor - and in his coronation he has declared the Empire of the Sun to be the ruling body of the planet, which most citizens have welcomed completely. It is at this point that the Empire began to look outwards to find more people to join its cause and to try and spread the message of the Canon of Light to the people.
GoalsSpread the message of Light to the Galaxy.Galactic domination, should people not join peacefully.

History
The Cult of Petra was started as the Cult of the Screaming Blade until Petra Cavataio took it over and changed it to more of her liking. The Screaming Blade was created by a renegade Sith Lord. He established the cult on Nar Shaddaa during the resurgent Sith Empire during the Cold War. There he found countless downtrodden people who were easy to manipulate, greatly benefitting from their zealous devotion. However it ended when Petra went to Nar Shaddaa. She changed the minds that followed him and then faced off with him. After defeating him, she had the pleasure of killing him for sheer fun and moved onto the next planet. She did not ignore the cult. She let minions work to grow her cult. When she finally placed her focus back on the cult, she changed it to fit her will. Petra applied what she learned and multiple levels of bondage with added bonus mind control. Building her numbers, the desire to have it on its own world came about, a world that was absolutely void of anything but pure love, devotion, obedience, and more focus on her just made it easier for her to work for that goal.

Two hundred years later, Sognoterra was established as the home world for her cult. Draining all life and the force from the world, she had destroyed it all to remake it to her liking. The core served the grounds to build a city with a temple dedicated to the worship and home of Petra. As years moved on, the cult shifted more to the back ground as the businesses the cult ran moved forward. The cult served more a processing center for slaves. Indoctrination is what the slaves went through then sold in markets as a way of expanding the cult.

With many things working smoothly, Petra moved the cult back to the front of her focus. First the criminal and legal businesses were consolidated under the administrator known as Elder of Scelus who had spent a career in running Cosa Nostra. For that, the organization was placed as “head corporation” with all others being subsidiaries to them. The Cult having businesses under them once again, they shifted focus on force using orders and governments.

Unification of the clans on Dathomir years before the shift for the Cult made it the first order to be integrated. As the changes were brought on, clans and clan mothers were removed. Clan strongholds were designated as towns and cities. Also clan mothers were made as priestesses with High Priestess being the active administrator over the order. The order became primary source of training force sensitive people with in the Cult. Even rancors were given citizenship as members in the cult.

Hapes Consortium was a little different but with force over the nobles and council members. It had the government changed but the cult integrated the worlds they controlled with government structure that Hapes had. The cult placed the Crowned Princess as the administrator. Petra placed rules and guidelines so the government runs smoothly and place the religion over it all.

Goals
Work to move the criminal activity back up front
Convert and over take the Sith ran empire
Take over the galaxy as a religious extremist group
Try to form a new force group out of ones the group take over.
- More will form as the wheels start moving

Expect me to do some work in the morning, check in as well. Just an FYI since I'm posting, don't burn me for hijacking the thread for a sec >_>
