What is Brotherhood of Raiskus?
Brotherhood of Raiskus is the Sith and Imperial Guild of the Galactic Alliance. Brotherhood of Raiskus strives to create a 'realistic' portrayal of the Sith Empire, by being a coalition of Sith Lords and their power bases. Overt power plays are forbidden, but members of the Brotherhood most play politics among each other to secure more resources, prestige, and power.
What timeline does the Brotherhood of Raiskus play in?
We currently acknowledge 20 ATC to be the current year, just after the events of the most recent Knights of the Fallen Empire chapter.
What is the roleplay style of the Brotherhood of Raiskus?
Characters in the Brotherhood of Raiskus are encouraged to be, colorful, flamboyant, and over the top. Characters are encouraged to lead their own subfactions within Brotherhood of Raiskus, so long as they remain reasonable. Above all else, the Brotherhood of Raiskus is a place for villains and antiheroes that follow the classic Star Wars or comic book styles. If the Republic guilds of the Galactic Alliance are the Justice League, we are the Legion of Doom.
Do I have to be a Sith to join the Brotherhood of Raiskus?
No. The Brotherhood of Raiskus has organizations within itself that cater to differennt styles of roleplay. The biggest among them is the Imperial Seventh Assault Fleet, a large section of the guild commited to Imperial Trooper and Imperial Fleet roleplay.
Brotherhood of Raiskus does not typically recruit or allow non-Imperial characters into the guild. However, exceptions can be made in specific circumstances. All non-Sith characters within the Brotherhood of Raiskus must answer to a Sith within Brotherhood of Raiskus. It's recommended if you wish to pursue this path that you first get inducted into the Brotherhood of Raiskus as a Sith or as a member of the 7th Fleet.
Does my character need to be on the Imperial side to join the Brotherhood?
We have recently created a Republic version of Brotherhood of Raiskus, but to join that version you must first be apart of the Imperial guild.
My character is a light sided individual working within the Empire. Can they be allowed into the Brotherhood?
In most cases, yes. Light side characters can typically find a way to interact and participate with the Brotherhood. That being said, most members of the Brotherhood of Raiskus tend to be Dark Side.
Is there an age requirement for the Brotherhood?
There is no out of character age requirement for the Brotherhood of Raiskus, but maturity is required. Brotherhood of Raiskus takes in-character actions very seriously. Offending a Dark Lord might result in serious consequences. So long as we believe a younger player has the maturity to participate in this high stakes environment, they will be permitted to join.
In characterly, most Sith aren't seen as acceptable apprentices until the age of 18, and the Imperial 7th Assault Fleet has an age limit of 18 as well. Younger characters have been accepted to the Brotherhood of Raiskus, so long as their players know and understand this might negatively impact their experience within Brotherhood of Raiskus.
Does the Brotherhood of Raiskus PvP?
Yes. A number of people within Brotherhood of Raiskus do participate in PvP, but we are an RP guild first.
What is the Delasys Pact?
The Delasys Pact is the official name of the Brotherhood's military coalitions.
My character holds a high rank within the Empire. Will I be able to keep that rank?
The answer is typically yes. We have and will continue accept characters that want to join Brotherhood of Raiskus at a high in-character rank. We look for the following things in each rank we accept.
Sith Apprentices: No requirements.
Sith Lord: Shows knowledge about the SWTOR time period and has a well constructed backstory.
Darth: Shows exceptional knowledge about the SWTOR time period, has a very well constructed backstory and considerable in game experience already. Darths must have at least one level 65 character in their legacy. We typically expect characters with this prestigious rank to be an already established character, and not a brand new character.
Imperial 7th Assault Fleet
Lieutenant: No requirements.
Lieutenant Commander: Shows knowledge about the SWTOR time period and has a well constructed backstory.
Commander: Shows knowledge about the SWTOR time period and has a very well constructed backstory. Captain: Shows exceptional knowledge about the SWTOR time period and has a very well constructed backstory.
Admiral or Moff: Shows exceptional knowledge about the SWTOR time period, has a very well constructed backstory and considerable in-game experience already. THese characters must have at least one level 65 character in their legacy. We typically expect characters with this prestigious rank to be an already established character, and not a brand new character.
How are members disciplined in Brotherhood of Raiskus?
Issues that are in-character issues stay as in-character issues, and are resolved as in-character issues. If you have an in-character issue with another member, deal with it in-characterly.
Minor out of character issues are typically handled with a brief and curt talk, and a rather pointed request to stop. Serious or repeat out of character issues, such as habitual godmodding or metagaming or harassment result in immediate guild kicks as soon as proof is delivered to members of the Raiskus Council.
What does it take to become a leader in Brotherhood of Raiskus?
Leadership positions open as the need arises, but typically every three to four months. They are nominated and discussed by current members of the Council, and finalized by Darth Morek. The Council consists of the 7 most influential Dark Lords and Lords of the Brotherhood. We look for people who actively contribue to Brotherhood of Raiskus, and strive to create roleplay for others.
Is there an Imperial Intelligence or Sith Intelligence branch within Brotherhood of Raiskus?
As of 13 ATC, the Imperial Intelligence Operations Division was dismantled by the Dark Council, and most members of the Brotherhood of Raiskus acknowledge this. The Imperial 7th Assault Fleet actively tries to recruit ex-Imperial Agents into the fold. The 7th Fleet has a special operations division designed to create agent-eqsue roleplay for these characters.
Characters part of Sith Intelligence are not permitted, because that would imply they are part of the power base of Lana Beniko or Empress Acina. All non-Sith characters must respond to a Sith within Brotherhood of Raiskus.
Does the Brotherhood of Raiskus recognize the Emperor's death?
That depends who you ask in the Brotherhood.
Does the Brotherhood of Raiskus acknowledge the occupation of the Eternal Empire?
Yes, and the Brotherhood of Raiskus is fighting against it. Fleet operations, planetary control, and other machinations are typically carefully avoiding the Eternal Empire.
