What is going to happen in your plot?
The Sector Rangers will be going after the Black Sun with their efforts culminating in the arrest warrant/bounty on their leader, Xar.

This plot will be for the investigations and arrests of low-level (rank I: scoundrels) Black Sun.
Every stage will have its own consequences, but since we're going after the low-hanging fruit here those will be minor. If a thread is stalled/abandoned after the investigation is complete, bounties will be issued for the culprits to justify seeking active members outside of the Sector Ranger main faction for support.

Threads will be following a progression line of sub-plots:
First Case:
1 [ASK] [SELF-DM] - Investigating crime-scene and interrogating witnesses
1 [ASK] [SELF-DM] - Locating the suspects
1 [ASK] [SELF-DM] - Arresting the culprit
Second Case:
1 [ASK] [SELF-DM] - Investigating crime-scene and interrogating witnesses
1 [ASK] [SELF-DM] - Locating the suspects
1 [ASK] [SELF-DM] - Arresting the culprit

What other writers (and their characters) will be a part of this?
I'm hoping for active involvement from the entire Sector Ranger faction.

How many threads will this plot have?
6

Include opposition type for each thread (DM, dice, ASK/OPEN, etc):
ASK/SELF-DM

What do you or your character hope to achieve with this plot? What is the "end-game?”.
I want to lay the basis for a case eventually leading to the arrest of Xar of the Black Sun. If this plot is successful I want to use the culprit's testimonies to go after [rank 2] members (ringleaders/enforcers).

Do you need any involvement of canon/site NPCs or faction leaders to be DMed by a staff member? If so, please detail who/what and for what purpose.
No.

When you say "culprits" do you mean Black Sun characters or are you referring to the characters that have stalled or failed the stage?

Is the 2nd Case totally reliant on the 1st case? What if First Case fails?

It looks a bit confusing to read since there are two separate cases mentioned in the opposition type for threads yet no first or second case mentioned in the summary but there IS mention of a future plot.

Black Sun NPCs that have committed the crimes that will be investigated.

They are not reliant on each other. They're separate investigations.

It looks a bit confusing to read since there are two separate cases mentioned in the opposition type for threads yet no first or second case mentioned in the summary but there IS mention of a future plot.
The plan is as follows:

This plot: arrest two low level Black Sun NPCs

Second plot: arrest two mid level Black Sun NPCs

Third plot: arrest two high level Black Sun NPCs

Fourth plot: arrest the Black Sun crimelord.

Each plot will have increasing difficulty and a new opportunity for 5S players to do an opposition plot.

This plot submission is for the first plot (and also for the Plot Team to determine whether they're okay with general idea)

Thanks for answering all that.

I will let you know I'm not going to give you a thumbs up or down on anything beyond the plot being reviewed now. This plot isn't completed so I'll wait until you submit the 2nd plot for me to review the 2nd plot. If you put info about a plot that hasn't been submitted yet that generally confuses the process of reviewing a plot since we are looking at this plot, not future plots. If you want, you can make a single large plot that encapsulates these different arrests. But if you only want only two low level black suns for this plot then that will be the goal.

I understand. I just didn't want to post up a 24 thread plot where certain stages could mean it drags out for another 8. That would be hell to keep track and review. Figured different plots also makes it easier for opposition plots to jump in (since we don't know who will be active and be wanting to jump in four months from now).

I'd like you to only review the plot to capture just the two low level members of the Black Sun.

For ease of review I've edited your plot for proper placement of information and removed the info about future plots since this is a review for this plot. It looks good so if you are fine with the tweaks I made then I'll approve it.
