The Reds... I specifically mentioned the Veil Nebula in my app, so that should be enough ore and coin for the Reds' resources.

As for the conflict, I pretty much doubt the Reds would try and make a move as soon as IC page 1. They are presently outnumbered and outmatched. They are separated and they need to consolidate, which is the biggest problem so far.

However, you can't kill an idea. I think that the ideological warfare, considering that socialism is pretty much a "new" concept in the Galaxy (by new, I mean never gained wide popularity or support during the ten or more milleniums of the Empire's existence), it is going to be featured heavily. Especially with the pseudo-Soviets now as a state sponsoring the ideology.

Also, unrelated, but @Imperialisium would you perhaps make a discord for this RP?

A note for all the folks whose characters had the best tutors money could buy - it's pretty likely that one of those tutors was a Deynai, since Magisters often take work tutoring noble children in order to make useful connections and raise money for their other operations. They are especially effective in teaching languages, and are highly sought-after: providing a Deynai tutor for your child is a major prestige move. So a number of these nobles might have known Deynai when they were younger.

I'd certainly be open to that link. The Cult of the Maker doesn't mind too much when it comes to religious exposure. Do the Deynai operate out to the fringes of the Imperium?

Do you think a Deynai would be working as an advisor to a governing body?

Quintara is looking currently, but she's more interested in whatever doomsday technology might be left there than the historical significance, and it's also just one of a number of leads she follows at any given time.

Quintara might have had one, although she was the fifth child so it's about even odds that they did or didn't invest in that. She was originally a linguist before she diversified into other fields, however, so it would make sense that she had a Deynai tutor for a time.

I'm thinking of going for a more generalized explorer who loves the idea of charting the unknown whos ultimate goal is to find old earth, she fully believes it existed and has long dreamed of finding it.

I think any interaction between our characters if it happened would be very interesting because of their different reasons for wanting to find it

Sure, though likely only for a short time before the Zakharins dismissed them and got a new tutor or sent Vladimir to a new academy.

He had a high wear rate.

Hah i suppose having good teachers is a given when you come from a rich noble house. Anyways having a Deynai tutor my character sounds good, one could've been hired after he became the sole heir.

Quintara tends not to say her actual reasons for the simple fact that most people would, quite rightfully, find them detestable.

Imp said that anyone declaring open revolt or seccession in the first 3 pages of the IC is gonna get dunked on by the Empire.

As for me, I guess I'm gonna start strengthening corporate hold. When corporate guidelines stand higher than Imperial Law, things will surely be fun.

They are, in fact, especially active on the fringe, since that is where you find a disproportionate amount of conflict, poverty, and people who need help. So that makes a great deal of sense.

Do you think a Deynai would be working as an advisor to a governing body?


Certainly. Among other things, they are highly valued as diplomats and negotiators; their neutrality is total, their integrity unimpeachable, and they are very good at reading people because they can literally choose to hear your heart beat like a living polygraph. So they would be valuable in that advisory role, especially in managing any kind of negotiation. But the governing body would always know that a Deynai advisor is not, ultimately, loyal to them; a Deynai is answerable only to his or her conscience, and they will advise you accordingly - to do the right thing, not necessarily the thing that's in your best interests.

Yes, that makes sense: while it would be a big investment for a younger child, Deynai linguistics training would certainly have given Quintara a big head start in her academic pursuits.

Fair enough - not everyone would have liked their Deynai tutors, naturally.

Quite possible, though the Duchy of Rosewood is the oldest Great House in the Imperium, so it probably has some very exceptional universities and academies the House could call upon, though it never hurts to bring in outside experts as well.

WIth that much influence in the Senate, it's gonna be pretty obvious that Irene's proposal would be laughed out of the Imperial government since one of her sections is anti-Deynai.

Oh no, it's not about dislike.

Vladimir was simply an exceedingly poor student and his parents, in an effort to find someone or someplace that could give him a good education that he wouldn't fail at, frequently switched out tutors or sent him to new academies.

He might've even liked his Deynai tutor back when he had them. I haven't had the time yet to read your app Norv so I can't fully judge that yet wether he'd have liked or disliked them.

Looks like some funds will be going to acquiring a Deynai advisor then.
