How VERY DARE YOU deny a direct request from your Emperor.

This will be noted as a demerit in your service record. -_-

Supreme Commander, you might want to fix your last post in Fractures.

Just wanted to say I gave Fractures a read last night and enjoyed it.  :)

Having not followed the TRF galaxy story-line in the past, I don't know... 10 years... can anyone give me a high level on the major factions (Coalition, Cree'Ar, Dominion, etc.)?

Since nobody else has jumped at this yet, I guess I'll take a crack at it.

Coalition: Basically, we got into some trouble with BDE, TNO and a subfaction seceding all at the same time way back when, and I've been trying to clean up that mess ever since :) In "To Curse the Darkness" a Coalition subfaction is currently having some trouble with the Contegorian Confederation (former GC member that seceded), and there are Cree'Ar creeping around who will end up attacking some major GC worlds, which has already been referenced in "The Force Wars", because timey-wimey TRF writing/timelines/RPs/etc.

Cree'Ar: they conquered Coruscant during Cataclysm, absorbed all of BDE, declared war on Force Users of every kind, and are generally bad news. As mentioned, they're in "To Curse the Darkness", and they'll be getting up to some pretty nefarious stuff soonish, I think.

TNO: Who can keep up these days? Hyfe and his fleet got swallowed by a Cree'Ar wormhole right before the Battle of Coruscant started, and hasn't been seen since. Zell almost died in the battle, and is generally believed dead. Kraken took over as Emperor IC, but then had to quit because of RL stuff, then decided to come back, then disappeared again, then came back again, and now he's gone again. Then, because he could, Ahnk (the writer, not the character) turned Theren Gevel into a Cree'Ar puppet Emperor on Coruscant, so at least some of TNO is now kind-of working for the Cree'Ar. Then Wes (writer, not character) came back, and now he's scheming his own scheme to take control of TNO from Kraken IC. It's all very convoluted.

Contegorian Confederation: this is Corise's group, which started out as part of the Coalition but broke off when TNO seized control of the Coalition's Onyxian Commonwealth (Joren Logan's subgroup, basically the Outer Rim Sovereignty with a new paint job, I think). It grew real big real fast, has pretty much stayed out of trouble with anyone (except Wes/TNO for a little while there) until recently, then when Corise went missing OOC, Omnae and I decided to mess with his stuff. Things are happening in "To Curse the Darkness" between the Confederation and the Coalition, and soon between those two and the Cree'Ar, but also Corise decided to come back somewhere in there and keep conquering new stuff, you know, for fun, or whatever.

The Republic: It used to be the Commonwealth. I think Seth's around here somewhere, so maybe he can tell you something about his schemes sometime soon. Anyway, at the end of Cataclysm, the Commonwealth decided it would be the Republic from now on. Fun times. Oh, and it might or might not be at war with TNO right now because of some dastardly Cree'Ar scheme to get a Republic defense station to fire on an Imperial warship.

The Alliance: So this one's a little tricky. Before the Commonwealth decided to be the Republic (thanks, Omnae!), there was an Alliance to Restore the Republic. And there sort of still is. There are plans to reform it into something else, now that we have a spare Republic lying around, but basically it managed a successful secession of the Kathol Republic from TNO, lost a big battle against TNO in the nearby Elrood Sector, and has suffered a loss of its core leadership recently. 

Did that help at all? I can try again if you'd like.

Excellent summary. I needed that as well.

So, Hyfe, are you planning on making a return?

And thanks! Irtar and I have been working pretty steadily on it. Another friend of ours was going to write the Wookiee, but ended up running out of time, which was too bad - the character would have been good.

Wes' Fractures rp is an excellent read!
