Hi, thought I would share some organisations from my current campaign that may be of use to others in their campaigns. The first one is a conversion from FFG:


 The Veiled Sorority
Type: Pirate Group
Headquarters: Unknown
Leadership: The Pirate Queen with a council of captains & advisors
Principal Activities: Piracy
Known Affiliations: Unknown
Known Adversaries: The Zann Consortium
Area of Operations: The Outer Rim territories
Size: Estimated 2,000+
Violence Index: 90
Key Personnel: Noira, Pirate Queen; Revah, Decoy Pirate Queen; Ryale Wei, Majordomo
Key Locations: Secret palace beneath Worlport on Ord Mantell. Secret base on Dalshinna’r in the Mayagil Sector
Addendum: The Veiled Sorority is a secretive pirate organisation that was formed thirty years before the Battle of Yavin. Active solely in the Outer Rim and created by a mysterious human female known only as the Pirate Queen, the Veiled Sorority was established to serve as a profitable, and largely anonymous, criminal endeavour. The Queen leads the Sorority and is assisted by a council of captains and advisors, all of which are female. While the Queen’s captains are well known by their crews, the Queen has always kept her identity a secret by wearing an elaborate mask. Though non-females of any species are allowed to join the Sorority, they can never aspire to positions of leadership in the enigmatic organisation. Despite this, the vast majority of the Sorority’s rank and file consists of men. Humans are the most numerous species within the Sorority, though a good number of near-human and alien species make up the difference.

The Veiled Sorority has always been willing to offer mercy to targets that surrender to it without a fight. This benevolence is tempered by the fact that the Sorority has no compunction about executing every last person aboard a ship that resists its boarding attempts. As the Sorority has increased its visibility in recent years, this reputation for both mercy and brutality has served it well.


Enjoy

Deano

 The Tal’din Cartel
Type: Crime Cartel
Headquarters: Unknown
Leadership: A group known as The Nine
Principal Activities: Illegal manufacture, storage, transportation and distribution of narcotics
Known Affiliations: Several smuggler guilds in Seswenna and Mayagil Sectors. Suspected connections with several pirate groups
Known Adversaries: N/A
Area of Operations: Seswenna & Mayagil Sectors
Size: Estimated 40,000+ individuals employed directly and indirectly. It is thought that numerous Government Officials within the sectors are on their payroll
Violence Index: 88
Key Personnel: The Nine
Key Locations: Unknown
Addendum: Despite their relative size, the Tal’din Cartel is a very secretive organisation, and surprisingly little is actually known about their operations. Whilst the cartel’s name would suggest a Mandalorian origin or influence within the group there is no known connection to Mandalore. It is believed that the group originated from somewhere in the Mayagil sector and have since spread their influence into the Seswenna sector following the close of the Clone Wars.

What does the violence index cap out at?

 Imperial Academy of Open Learning
Type: University
Headquarters: Coruscant
Leadership: Chancellor Regan Lar
Principal Activities: Provision of open learning and distance teaching
Known Affiliations: COMPNOR; SAGEducation; Coalition for Progress; Universities across the Core, Colonies and Inner Rim
Known Adversaries: Rebel Alliance’s Department of Education
Area of Operations: Nearly all sectors in the Core, Colonies and Inner Rim regions
Size:300,000+ employees
Violence Index: 2
Key Personnel: Vice-Chancellor Jenna Cordell
Key Locations: Coruscant, Carida, Obroa-skai
Addendum: Formerly known as the Republic Institute of Open Learning, the Imperial Academy of Open Learning (IAOL) provides a broad range of higher education courses that can be studied flexibly through distance teaching. Whilst operationally the organisation is somewhat Core focused, it does provide courses and services to millions of students across the galaxy. Despite being a government organisation, IAOL does have a fair degree of autonomy with its day-to-day operations, but course content and training materials are closely scrutinised by COMPNOR’s SAGEducation division to ensure that the values and history of the New Order are correctly incorporated into the materials. There are also some rumours that COMPNOR reviews all student submissions for signs of sedition and rebel sympathies.

No worries Smile


 Stardrifter Hotels
Type: Business
Headquarters: Coruscant
Leadership: Caleb Nedmak, CEO
Principal Activities: Hotel accommodation
Known Affiliations: Cybot Galactica; Industrial Automation
Known Adversaries: Anti-droid groups; Bell Hotels
Area of Operations: Most sectors of the galaxy
Size: 4,000+ employees plus 200,000+ droids
Violence Index: 5
Key Personnel: Jordan O’Dar, Logistics Director
Key Locations: Coruscant, Brentaal
Addendum: The galaxy spanning Stardrifter Hotels chain is synonymous with affordability and simplicity. Their droid managed hotels are renowned for having an all droid staff at each of their hotels, which is a source of contention with anti-droid groups. The rooms are compact and functional with little room for anything other than sleep and a quick sonic shower. The only food and drinks available are from vending machines in hotel lobbies. The discretion of the droid staff is also well known with no need for identification to book a stay, albeit all room bookings are paid for in advance by its guests and there is a strict no refunds policy in place. A single room costs 20 credits a night whilst a double room costs 30. Stardrifter Hotels can be found in most large starports and major cities across the galaxy and often look unnervingly similar whatever their location.

Very cool! I'm far too lazy with things like this in my games but I always appreciate other GMs creating material like this! Will follow with interest!

I really like the idea of the Stardrifter Hotels.

I’d love to see your take on the Imperial Postal Service.

Violence index should be a little higher for the "Postal" workers. Laughing
