As many have no doubt noticed we rebranded the faction and the website from Umbradawn and Eclipse Templars to Emerald Ring.

Now we have moved from Templars to being more of an underworld syndicate, as we've always been willing to cross the line into the criminal aspects of the galaxy, whether that be theft, kidnapping, assassination or simply opening and operating cities and businesses regardless of whose territory we're in. We are still mercenaries, business men, and we intend to continue to operate in a way that we honor our word and commitments.

This change was something we discussed internally off and on the last year or two as we recognized we did not fit what one would expect from a Templar. Although the concept was designed around being morally grey, in execution we are simply not knights. Throughout the years of operation, we consistently ran into misconceptions and misunderstandings in regards to our motives, actions, or how we structured ourselves. Another important reason is that when Eclipse Templars was founded, it was essentially a personal project. Since then it has grown and become a group endeavor, utilizing an Order of Templars as our primary structure left limited room for shared leadership and caused confusion in regards to our chain of command. Given our structure is much more relaxed and much less militaristic, it gave new members the wrong impression on what to expect when working for us.

These reasons, and others, have lead us to change our identity to be more in line with how we see ourselves, as we have always maintained we do not care how others perceive us. With all that in mind, this rebrand is more of a cosmetic change than anything else. We still intend to maintain a grey morality where we do not aimlessly attack anyone we can but rather we operate in a way that furthers our goals regardless of what it takes. I still intend to operate as a legitimate businessman and mercenary, keeping my word and willing to take on any job that pays well enough.

Eclipse Templars wanted to make the galaxy a better place while advancing it's own interests and getting paid. The corrupt were our targets, but the corruption in this galaxy is so bad it was simply ignored when exposed.

Thanks to these lessons, the Emerald Ring only cares about protecting what's ours and expanding, peacefully or not. If you want to be a part and join us as an outsider or member, welcome. To those who aimlessly meddle in our business and stand in our way, good luck. To the rest, thank you for reading.

P.S., keep an eye for news about us opening taverns. We're looking for taverns to buy, we keep our taverns open to all so if you have a personal tavern that you want to use for access to the bounty hunting guild, contact us. We'll operate them publicly anywhere in the galaxy, regardless of governments and laws.

Recruitment and Site Registration Update
Posted by: Dain Thurith - 12-31-2020, 02:50 PM - Forum: Bulletin - No Replies

Hello everyone,

It's been awhile since we posted any update on the state of the website or the future of it so I wanted to take some time to put an update here. We've completed our transition to Emerald Ring, although some things may have been missed. We aim to add a ton more content to the site and there is a ton of exciting things in the works such as our line of taverns that we are aiming to open on as many planets as possible, the recent opening of Cassiopeia, and a lot more.

As we aim to make Year 22 a year of expansion while the past two years were more focused on inward development and stability. As such we've been working hard on the website, faction and Discord to ensure that it is a good environment to introduce new people to. 

You'll notice the menu on the left is mostly updated, the newest page added being the Recruitment page which is filled with information on joining us, what to expect if you do that, and what types of people we are looking for.

In addition to this, as we aim to sell more and more to the public and have some events such as hunting, giveaways, etc, planned for the future, we've enabled the ability to register accounts again after disabling them due to a constant stream of bot accounts but we've since rectified this issue. If you have any issues with registering your account or activating it please contact me via DM on SWCombine or via PM on Discord

Thank you for your patience during this time,
Dain Thurith

  Confederate Head of State Corruption Exposed
Posted by: Dain Thurith - 11-18-2020, 04:52 AM - Forum: Bulletin - No Replies

The Confederacy of Independent Systems: a corrupted organization lead by a tyrant who doesn't care about the poor and ruined lives left in the wake of their merciless expansion. Starting on Y21D335, the CIS became the target of an asset acquisition mission by Umbradawn as part of the larger goal of redistributing the wealth of the corrupt and supporting the needy.

 Darach Ríoga security camera footage taken earlier today.
At various times over the course of Y21D335 and Y21D336, a team of Eclipse Templar Inquisitors were able to enter factory districts and storage areas on the planet Thesme. During that time they were able to secure and load cargo valued at approximately 500 million credits medical supplies and powered down droids onto Eclipse Templar freighters. After, they left to assist in the primary heist in Mondress which would take place days later.

On Y21D339 at 11:45, the Modular Taskforce Cruiser An Ghrian Ríoga, under the command of Grand Master Dain Thurith and Exarch Varian Shroud, arrived in Mondress. They raided CIS' secure storage Brayls filled with approximately 6 billion credits worth of weapons, armor, tools, and medical supplies. The operation came together in very little time, in thanks to meticulous and on-the-fly planning from Dain Thurith and de Caito, which lead to excellent reconnaissance and intelligence gathering from the Inquisitors inside the CIS, one of which an officer. Using the access granted to them freely, the Inquisitors were able to board and empty six different Brayls into the MTC An Ghrian Ríoga, which had it's transponders changed to read as a CIS vessel. The rest of the team stood watch, prepared to cut the docking tube and enter hyperspace immediately if needed. Shortly after the over 9000 crates of varying sizes, one reportedly containing over 14000 CM Fragstorm Shotguns, were loaded, the strike team departed and went their separate ways. Exarch Shroud was charged with securing the cargo and remaining in command of the An Ghrian Ríoga during it's return trip to neutral space while the others moved into position for phase two.

Around 22:30, Grand Inquisitor de Caito signaled for the Inquisitors to disable the ships containing the primary targets:Supreme Commander Sion Plagueis; Alanna Kutol wife of Chairman Siejo Kutol; and all other Confederate Ships in orbit of both planets. A few minutes later, Plagueis and his security detail of three lower ranked members were apprehended along with fifteen unarmed builders.
Shortly later at 22:45, the disabled ships above Zrak were secured within an unnamed Umbradawn Colossal-class carrier. Alanna Kutol and her security detail were apprehended by the strike force made up of Ord and Ghealach operatives. This part of the operation went mostly without a hitch as all targets were asleep in their quarters aboard the BFF-1 Bulk Freighters orbiting the planet.

The hostages were only taken to ensure a smooth closure to the operation and fair treatment was provided. When negotiations with Head of State Taldar Logas were opened, before any of the details were laid out, Taldar refused to negotiate and wasted valuable time trying to goad the Umbradawn leaders into presumably executing his people. Though the members of Umbradawn were aware of the CIS' treatment of their people as essentially expendable slaves, the magnitude of this disregard for their lives still came as a shock. Some of the hostages even expressed a desire to work alongside Umbradawn to get revenge on CIS as they knew of this disregard.

After over a week of negotiations breaking down due to Head of State Logas interfering anytime progress was made and telling the hostage holders that he did not value the hostages being returned safely as, "there will always be more workers". Despite these interruptions, excessive disorganization, refusal to allow negotiators to work with constant interruptions, and consistently changing lead negotiator anytime progress was made, only two hostages were harmed during this process and only as a last resort to ensure that Head of State Logas knew Umbradawn was serious after over a week of being instigated. Thankfully not all within the CIS shared Taldar's desire to see the hostages killed to send a message and an agreement was reached.

Part of the agreement was ownership officially being signed over of the goods taken from Mondress, with these new armaments Umbradawn plans to arm new battallions of templars crossed all three of the orders to aid in the fight to expose corruption all throughout the galaxy, protect the weak, and punish the wicked. In addition to this, Umbradawn will be bundling a portion of the seized assets and donating them to young sentients to keep them safe in their adventures. The remainder will be sold to fund these efforts in addition to helping build better homes for the refugees under the care of Umbradawn.

  Dac Kain; Business man, respected middle, and supporter of terrorism?
Posted by: Dain Thurith - 04-13-2019, 06:05 PM - Forum: Bulletin - No Replies

Thanks to Vex, a former member of the Mecrosa inner circle, we bring you new information about Dac Kain, the Hosnian Conflict, and Han Balooga.

Included in this post you will find logs from Dac Kain himself discussing with Vex, his former right hand man, about various events that have transpired and covered up so as to deny the people the truth. 

First, on the Hosnian Conflict, it would likely surprise you to know that Mecrosa, a 'neutral' faction, not only conspired with the terrorist organization known as Zann Consortium to gain control of the Hosnian system, they did so knowing the Empire was in the system attempting to secure control themselves. As such, Mecrosa and Dac Kain actively aided in attacks against the Empire and assisted Zann Consortium and the New Republic, known enemies of the Empire at the same time yet claim to be entirely neutral in galactic affairs.

Second, on the topic of Han Balooga, who suddenly went missing shortly after winning a prize for a free surgery from Xucphra at a swap meet, Dac Kain personally murdered him while he was under anesthetic then mutilated the body by removing an ear with his lightsaber so as to quiet one of his rogue agents with 'compromising information' then covered this up again, by letting the New Republic take credit.

It's quite clear to me that Dac Kain's Mecrosa is far from neutral - a tactic many have used to play all those around them and excuse themselves under the neutrality excuse, strange behavior for a respected middle or par for the course for a corrupt man such as Dac Kain to be allying himself with the Zann Consortium?

Without further adieu, the logs, uncut and for you to be able to make your own informed decision. I personally know from my experience as a rogue Defiler that Mecrosa has been supporting Zann Consortium for a long time. Vex and I are also available for comments and questions on our public Discord.
