Joint Chief Idea


Recommended Posts

  • Advisor

Hey Guys, 

I was wondering if we could implement something similar to the Joint Chiefs in Star Wars on to the server.

For those who do not know what the joint chiefs are, let me fill you in.
"The Joint Chiefs of the Galactic Empire were members of the executive group that advised the Emperor on all martial-related matters. The cabinet was composed of the chiefs of the Imperial Army and higher ranking members of the Naval chiefs. Owing to the nature of their job, many were known to work closely with top officers of COMPNOR and its sub-agency the Imperial Security Bureau, Imperial Intelligence and the Naval Intelligence Agency, along with members of the Imperial Ruling Council."

My Idea for this to function on the server are the following...

  • Only the Ranks Brigadier+ or Commodore+ can become members [Exceptions are ISB officers who are above Colonel+]
  • There can only be a set amount of spots, my idea is 3 spots per branch , (MHC, Navy,ISB) , however all spots do not needed to be filled
  • Each branch needs someone at the rank of Major General/Equivalent at least  to be the lead member to represent their branch
  •  The roles of the Joint Chiefs are for the selected members to meet, talk about issues, strategies or tactics for missions, Intelligence, etc [involves a lot of PassiveRP]
  • All people who can attend the meetings with the chiefs who aren't select members are ISB members, Naval Intelligence Agency members, or Imperial Intelligence members
  • Anyone above the rank of General+ or equivalent can also enter these meetings
  • The more classified things that are spoken about, the higher the rank required to enter a meeting <-- For ISB and NIA/Imperial Intel members

 

Thanks for reading through this! 

Please leave feedback and suggestions to improve this idea! - Welshy

Thanks, It isn't needed I guess, but from what I have thought, the Pros of having it outweigh the Cons

Well i mean it would increase rp for those who participate however that would be only few people.

I realise that, however, we could expand it to involve more people/everybody :)

I've already proposed this idea along with a full hierarchy of how it would be structured. Will probably redo it soon with improvements to put forward again.

Nice! Could you show me what you have already?

Here are my suggestions, just to make the council more balanced. Obviously it's to advise Emperor Palpatine, so he and Vader are always invited. But limiting it to Brigadier+ would be an issue, so I suggest Commander+ and a vote for temporary members. My suggestion of members is below. So 16 members in total, but only 2-IC of members are allowed to attend in place of Commander of Brigadier.

So Permanent Members could be;

Security {2 Max}

  • ISB [Colonel+]
  • Shock/RT Commander/Brigadier [Due to importance to arrests and security]

Navy {2 Max}

  • Navy [Commodore+]
  • Pilot Commander

Sith {3 Max}

  • Sith Grand Inquisitor and/or Marauder Leader
  • Royal Guard and/or Shadow Guard
  • Royal Representative or chosen RST/RG/SG representative.

MHC and Support Regiment {2 Generals + MT CMDR}

  • MHC Generals
  • MT Commander/Brigadier [Due to importance to healthcare of Imperials]

 

Temporary Members [ Bi-weekly or Monthly Change] 

  • 3 Attack Regiments {CMDR+ Only}
  • 3 Specialist Regiments {CMDR+ Only}

Only my input, hope it happens though. So +1.

Something like this should be kept very simple by only reserving it to groups like MHC, Navy and ISB. These are the important branches of the Empire's Military and are primarily the ones on the server that make the biggest impact (roleplay-wise). Involving other regiment commanders will make the whole establishment redundant; also, Stormtrooper Commanders don't qualify for "chiefs of the Imperial Army" 

If a large amount of higher-ups on the server are  being involved with such a prestigious and well-appointed group of officers, there's no real point to it as it's going to end up becoming a "Superior Ranking Officer Board" type thing (this is where people feel like they're being left out).

On top of that, if you want to keep the whole idea fresh, unique and relevant (and not another commander's meeting every week), there needs to be events/campaigns/plans/scenarios that directly snowball off of decisions and discussion made in their conferences so it feels like they're actually doing something to affect the server (not just talking about fake battles and logistics).

That's my opinion on the idea, it would be pretty cool if done properly.

I really agree on what you are saying, and as a new TEM I could do this, as well as the other event masters

An idea like this won't effectively impact the entire server unless the decisions that the Joint Chiefs make result in events or policies (as Appo suggested) that involve the general population of the server. I think this idea has good potential but I think you should iron out how you plan to involve everyone on the server with an implementation like this.
