As a long time board member and an Admin-fearing man, I would like to know why the Chiss Ascendacy is allowed to open it's borders to 'aliens' ? My respects normally would go to an MSN or Private Message investigation, but I believe some of the other players should also receive the knowledge of which I seek. :P

The Character: Natt'hija'cspala was approved for the Chiss Imperium leadership. I'm hoping that the player laid out basic plot map, or ways he/she would take the character in a general direction to CMAC before the application was approved. [Assuming it's Xaph] I have no doubt in my mind, he approached Ams, Cray or Han with general ideas and thus, was approved.

I am NOT questioning Xaph as a player, or the CMAC for their actions. I am curious as to how the canon species and government has taken a wild and crazy-ass turn with little to NO roleplaying to back up it's character's movement.

Also, I recently read Derrick's comments on the matter, and I haven't spoken to him more than the Bank Robbery plot, so I'm not opening this topic on his behalf, and I would request that all subject matter from that topic stay away.

I feel extremely defensive at the moment, because I'm posing questions that can be answered by Xaph and a member of CMAC. And in no way, do I wish to start ARGUMENTS or heated debates.

I'm simply curious. :P

Here are some of things I suggest for the future:

Canon Faction Applications:
All leadership applications should be considered with extreme care. With the Chiss being a major Canon faction, references DO exist. A plot map or 'where am i taking this faction' should be provided WITH the character and the RPG. As players should have the right to know. If some of the plot ideas are confidential, that should be brought up officially by CMAC and either announced or added to the faction application; it stops confusion, rumors and arguments.

Natt'hija'cspala
If indeed Xaph, I would like to mention that I have enjoyed your writing skills. I may not have always agreed with you outside the RPG, but I do respect your skills as a player when it comes to writing. I am sure you have an accurate and detailed explanation, but what I recommend is that you Role Play this before you make a public announcement. You have a lot of Character Development to show for an entire civilization to open it's doors freely to aliens and invite them to peace talks. I think the bar is high with the Chiss (which is something you can make), and by showing more steps...whether the character is fraud, seeking additional military power from the known galaxy, or simply wants more friends... a single IC post would've helped. But you took a giant leap, without showing us where you came from.

CMAC
Am's acceptance on this character was broad, and rather interesting. It showed us that this character would be a better leader for the Chiss Imperium, yet we have no In Character reference as to why the leader has opened it's borders. None of that may be available to our CHARACTERS, but as PLAYERS we all have the right to know why the canon race is making a giant leap. Perhaps official explanation in a faction thread, or chiss announcement, would suffice our worries...


Once again, I'm not trying to be negative or rude in any form. I'm simply seeking answers and making suggestions to the general public. That's what this forum is for, and I plan on using it if I believe some things could help the community. At least with this, we are all on the same page. :P

The Chiss can be seen as alot like Luke Skywalker.

Kel took them so far off canon, that their entire character (as a race) has been shattered, and I'm trying to pick up the pieces in as logical a way as possible. Which is really, really difficult. If you want, I'll tell you my plans on MSN, but CMAC might have different ones.

Xaph's plan is probably a lot less drastic than CMAC's plans should anything go awry. So, we're willing to let him do what he needs provided the Chiss themselves aren't compromised.

Ah, wouldn't an idea for Kel be to simply an uprising and rebellion?

Kel is gone inactive, and I'm trying to restore the Chiss to the isolationists outside the galaxy that they really are.

People of the Galaxy,

I, Natt'hija'cspala, greet you. I come to you representing the previously turmoiled Chiss Imperium. Our area of space has recently undergone a politcal upheaval of the current government, and I now lead our humble government. When our troubles are fully resolved, I will be accepting diplomatic representatives from all areas of space.


Not according to this...

Whatever happens, all eyes are on the Chiss. And we as Chiss players have a responsibility to ensure that we maintain some level of respect for canon while also allowing ourselves some freedom to explore the boundaries of these characters.

Personally, I'm very disappointed that the Chiss are even near the position they are in today. But what's done is done and it's fortunate that it's being resolved. Hopefully things will be back to "normal" sometime soon.

Xaph, can you explain here? This is why I opened the topic. :P

( As I believe we blocked each other. )

No, you've blocked me.

It's a storyline. Posting it here would ruin the suprise, and we all sure do love suprises.

Aye, that clears it up then.

I trust CMAC and their faith in your actions.

Good luck mate, and you already know you've scored some readers. : D

Back at me? Pfft. I'm not the one who decides what to do for the Chiss as a faction. I'd just like to know when anything is going to happen. If not, there's no reason for the character and to a further extent, myself for being here.

Mainly I just wanted to say "ye of the crimson gaze".
