  Proposal for a background document
December 24, 2015 6:02:42 AM    View the profile of Eviscares 
This has been sparked by some questions posed in the "A rose by any other name" thread. I was wondering how exactly the VE works, what differntiates it from the galactic empire, and how the changes could be easily communicated to members old and new alike.
To this end I drafted up a in universe document, detailing changes in policy after the death of the empire.
I'd like to hear general opinions on this approach as well as on the document itself, which can be found under the following link:

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Ols0r2uXTTVsgUKFqslEhxz_fJYJ-2K3M7yv_tQslnM/edit?usp=sharing

Currently it is set to comment mode, so you can only add suggestions which would have to be approved by me. I think that that should serve as a good starting point for a discussion.

Greetings,

In all honesty I haven't looked over your Doc yet Evis but is this what you're looking for? http://www.vastempire.com/wiki/Category:General

What I like about Evi's doc is, it explains how our version of the Empire deviated away from the canon in terms of the characterization of the Imperials. Why we accepted  riff-raff so to speak. Trick and I were discussing this on Slack a few days ago.

It's really well-written and articulate. ;

I might have a few quibbles, but in principle, Evi, I agree that we could be better about defining the in-story differences between "The Vast Empire" and the Palpatine regime that it purports to succeed.  This is a very good start.

I've said on Slack: I picked up "The Imperial Handbook" before the holidays, and even though it's now "Legends," it would serve as a great template for us to define the VE's in-story faction.  It points out what the Empire was "all about," and therefore gives us a chance to show what our version of the Empire is all about, by deciding what departures to make.  You point about speciesism/sexism being abandoned (if only based on enlightened self-interest, rather than noble principles) is a great example: we're Imperials, but we're a sort of kinder, gentler face of the Empire.  That's good from a role-playing point of view, and makes a lot of sense, in-story.
