Iron Skin Resistance

4c1095f0-0d33-11ea-96c7-1758c6dae7bc_800_420.jpeg




History:


After the destruction of Mandalore, many of it's people left the planet. Rumour had spread across the galaxy that the planet, the Mandalorian's home was cursed. For over a hundred years the planet lay almost deserted save for a few pirates. That was until the conquering of the system by the new 'Manda'lor'. A young man named Malinkar conquered the planet roughly 130 years after the destruction of Mandalore. But this wasn't the only Mandalorian planet he'd concquered. Malinkar had previously conquered Concord Dawn in 115 ABY and brought it under his iron fist. Upon his conquering of Mandalore he declared himself to be the Manda'lor. His only claim? The ancient mask of Mandalore which he proudly wears and flaunts in front of his followers.

A Mandalorian named Kom'rk returned to his home planet of Concord Dawn and saw the tyranny that Malinkar was inflicting on it. The way Malinkar and his soldiers, the 'Blood Legion' treated their people was outrageous and he could not stand to see it. This brave Mandalorian warrior formed the Iron Skin Resistance. For 20 years he has been fighting against the wrath of Malinkar with little to no hope in sight. Malinkar's grip on the Mandalore sector and it's people was tight. People were loyal to him as they believe him to be worthy of the title Manda'lor others, loyal because of fear. Some, however, do genuinely believe in Malinkar's beliefs and that he has united the Mandalorian people.

The resistance has attracted many Mandalorians over the years who wished to free the Mandalore sector from the tyrannical rule of Malinkar. The Resistance has been open to all kinds of different Mandalorian creeds, as long as they adhere to the core Mandalorian creed they are welcomed to fight with them. As such there is no core belief system within the Resistance, as such some of the people within adhere to the Way of the Mandalore, others don't, some are strict and some are not.


Aims and Objectives:

The primary focus of the Iron Skin Resistance is to expel the tyrannical warlord known as Malinkar from the sector. Malinkar and his forces have a tight hold over the system, including Mandalore, Concord Dawn and Concordia. This is mainly due to his forces and the fear he strikes into the people of the sector. The Iron Skin Resistance wish to truly unite the Mandalorian people, not through fear but through true loyalty and democracy. They believe Malinkar is antithetical to the Mandalorian people, his actions only cause more friction between them.


Organisation:


The resistance is organised loosely. It does have formal military companies and battalions etc. but nothing is concrete due to the nature of the war that they are fighting. Members of the resistance are forced to move from safehouse to safehouse across the cities they operate in, relying on thsoe who are sympathetic to the cause. As such these members and squads attack scarcely, seeking out the opportunities to attack and doing so when they can. There are members who operate more formally outside of the cities however and have encampments which they operate from. There are also some 'Flying columns' who are capable of rapid mobility and move from city of city using hit and run, ambush tactics and guerrilla warfare to their advantage. Due to the pressures put on the Resistance by the Blood Legion funding is hard to come by and as such all members use their own equipment. There is no issued equipment and uniform, the members typically wear their own beskar'gam and use their own guns.

Ranks:


Verd:


This is they starting rank in the Protectors, soldiers of this rank are generaly fully trained Mandalorians but may not have experience working in a group of their fellow Mando and may have been lone wolves prior to the inception of the Resistance. This starting rank allows them to get the grasp of working in teams and with their kin. These soldiers make up the core of the Resistance's forces and are highly dependable warriors owing their culture. The war has been difficult for many of the resistance fighters and as such a lot of the warriors don't make it past this rank.

Ruus'alor:

This rank is the equivalent of Sergeant in other armies. Ruus'alor are junior leaders. They are able to take charge of a small squad of Mando's to accompany them on missions. Ruus'alor are experienced soldiers and have proven themselves to work well with their vode and even lead a squad. As leaders they can issue commands to those below them and take commands directly from those above. Soldiers of this rank are a bit more common than the rank of Alor'ad but there are again few of them.

Alor'ad :

This rank is the equivalent to a Captain rank in other armies. Alor'ad act as senior leaders within the faction and often issue commands to the Ruus'alor under their charge as they see fit. Alor'ad are veteran soldiers who have proven to be the best of the best. They are seasoned leaders and take orders directly from the Al'verd. They are usually given charge of a batallion of soldiers and may lead entire forces in a city. They are few and far between, owing to how harsh the war has been.

Al'verd:

This rank is the highest leadership rank. There can only be one Al'Verd at a time and they have supreme command over the Mandalorian Protectors. This is the most senior rank within the Protectors and is reserved for those who have deemed themselves worthy by their fellow kin. This role is electable and those who are elected to this rank keep it for life or until they resign/retire.

I apologies for the wait on having this reviewed

The ranks and organization structure are fine. After talking to our Lore Admin, we do share some objections with the write-up, namely in the history.

So, pretty much we are going to have to ask that the warlord Malinkar needs to have his control dailed back quite significantly. A portion of Concord Dawn would work best instead of the entire Mandalore sector.

I'm having to ask because all the Mandalorian worlds have been roleplayed on for a year's worth of time (in real life). And if approved then suddenly the Mandalore sector has been under control of a warlord that just pops in for many years as opposed to a collection of messed up worlds that are barely organized they have been roleplayed since the start of the timeline. Malinkar's warlord-dom would have been known by those characters, but it just suddenly pops into existence.


So, yeah. I'd adjust to along the lines I mentioned above. Malinkar can have control a swath of Concord Dawn, self-proclaimed himself to be Mandalore or w/e, and then trying to be aggressively expanding his control over the Mandalorian sector. Your Iron Skin Resistance could still of course be still exist and still fight to push him back and get him out of the Sector.

@Faust Rex

When you made adjustments, tag me and I'll have another look.

Hey @The Good Doctor, Faust hasn't been heard from in awhile. I can make the edits. Concord Dawn is missing like a hemisphere or more in canon. And as far as Mandalore goes, he owns Keldabe which I believe is pretty far away from Sundari. Most RP I've seen on Mandalore has been centered around Sundari (hence the shift). So Malinkar has seats of power in various areas Concord Dawn- Most of what remains, Concordia, one of the cities as well as a mining town, and on Mandalore, the regions around Keldabe. Is that agreeable?

I was waiting to hear back from @Faust Rex on this (Maybe he got busy and needed time). I'll archive for inactivity.

@Rhogar you are welcome to resubmit if you would like. I'd keep the submission itself along the lines of what I suggested above and what Logan suggested in your lore article. You can still have your resistance against the Warlord that way, I'm still not comfortable with swarths of territory that people have been roleplaying on for a long time suddenly becoming hostile territory.
