Jedi Vs Sith Golden

The MandalMine Collective (MMC) is a collection of various companies that have been bought out by the Admiral. Each of the companies has a specific focus. Armature Apparatus (AA) produces a wide range of personal gear & equipment. Blue Shift Transportation (BST) is a passenger & cargo shipping line. Gold Standard Consultants (GSC) is a third party negotiation & contract firm. MandalMine (MM) is a raw material extraction & sale company. Star Forge Shipyards (SFS) produces starships & planetary vehicles. Starfire Security (SS) is a private security firm. The main office is located on Dressel in the Galactic Market. There are MandalMine Collective outposts across much of the galaxy.

Board of Officers

The MandalMine Collective is a private corporation, owned solely and completely by Admiral Z'har Dizen Or'dinii. However, to allow the company to operate at peak efficiency the Admiral employs a Board of Officers to run the subsidiary companies. However, despite the apparent power of the board, the Admiral retains the power to replace any member of the Board at his pleasure.

Mining Contract

The standard contract rate for most planets is 10,000,000 "7 paid per year (IC, every time resources are collected) in exchange for any mineral wealth extracted, non-negotiable. However, it is possible to exchange the standard contract for a less favorable contract with different terms (exact terms subject to negotiation).

Natural Resources

MandalMine's main service is sale of refined ingots of materials useful in ship and building construction.

Orders may be placed as either a monthly scheduled or a one time shipment. Any orders over 500 "7 will include free delivery. Any orders below 500 "7 will have a 400 "7 transport fee. Orders under 1,000 "7 can be placed at any MMC outpost. Orders over 1,000 "7 must be placed at the primary business office on Dressel.

Personal Equipment

Transportation

Blue Shift Transportation provides quick and simple transport to most inhabited planets for both cargo and personal, no questions asked. Please note that all cargo and passengers are scanned for dangerous materials, such as explosives. Additionally, passengers are confined to the passenger section of the ship and unable to access the crew quarters and bridge (unless of course, you know how to breath in a vacuum). Anyone attempting to ship dangerous materials or access the crew section of the ship will be questioned by a helpful security officer from Starfire Security.

Transport for a single person with minor luggage costs 500 "7 for regional travel & 1,000 "7 for extended travel. Bulk cargo (per ton) costs 2,000 "7 for regional travel & 4,000 "7 for extended travel. Fragile cargo costs 5,000 "7 for regional travel & 10,000 "7 for extended travel.

Subsidiaries

For security reasons, all MandalMine Collective holdings, including ships, stations & ground installations have comprehensive holosurveillance systems, to the point that there isn't a single accessible space on the craft that isn't under continuous surveillance.

Starship & vehicles that are owned by MandalMine Collective are generally labeled with a call string for ease of recognition. All call strings begin with "MMC-", denoting that they belong to the MandalMine Collective. Following that is the subsidiary tag. Then comes the vehicle designation & number. The call string will generally end with the vehicle's names if given one. For example, An AT-RT that is part of Starfire Security might have the call string MMC-SSSB-ATRT-5846 "Burnout", while a Imperial Cargo Ship that is part of Blue Shift Transportation may have the call string MMC-BST-ICS-89447 "Hex". The spacecraft owned by the MandalMine Collective, with the exception of the spacecraft in the Naval Brigade, are painted a uniform glossy white.

Armature Apparatus

Armature Apparatus Logo

Armature Apparatus was originally made software & hardware. Because this was less than optimal its line of products was expanded to include a vast array of personal equipment once the MandalMine Collective gained ownership. The civilian product line ranges from datapads & commlinks to droids. The military product line ranges from blasters & grenades to war droids & ship mounted weaponry. Most of the equipment used by the other subsidiaries is produced by Armature Apparatus. While the equipment Armature Apparatus makes may not be on the cutting edge of technology, it does have the benefit of being extremely durable. It is one of the main draws for the customers that the equipment is guaranteed to function in even the most extreme conditions that a person could encounter. One popular tale is of a datapad produced by this company continuing to function even after taking a direct hit from a blaster bolt.

Blue Shift Transportation

Blue Shift Transportation Logo

Blue Shift Transportation was a passenger line based out of the Galactic Market on Dressel. However, poor business practices & rough economic times forced the owners to sell off the company. Spotting a chance to cut costs further, the Admiral bought the entire company outright. After supplementing the fleet to be able to handle cargo as well as passengers, he set the fleet to transporting the vast quantity of raw materials gathered by MandalMine to the various shipyards & factory planets. The fleet also carries passengers & private cargo at incredibly low prices to provide further income. While most of the company's holding are ships, the company has both orbital & land based docking & resupply facilities located across the galaxy. While the majority of these facilities are located in well traveled regions of space, a fair number are 'hidden' at backwater or uncharted places in order to serve as emergency rendezvous points in times of sufficient need.

Gold Standard Consultants

Gold Standard Consultants Logo

Originally a consulting firm on Muunilinst, Gold Standard Consultants was acquired fairly early in order to assist in making business contracts for MandalMine Collective as beneficial as possible. Their main source of work comes from overseeing any contracts involving the MandalMine Collective & the various subsidiaries companies that belong to it. They also are available for hire in a wide range of legal services. These services include drafting contracts, Attending functions as neutral third party witnesses, Legal consultation, Judicial or criminal representation, Hosting legal or negotiation meetings, and other similar tasks. Most of their offices are located near the Core, however most known planets with a sufficiently large population will have at least one office present.

MandalMine

Tribal dragon head

The Admiral's original company. Through a combination of time, a monopoly on beskar, price undercutting, & ruthless negotiating the Admiral managed to acquire an impressive fortune. While MandalMine focused on Ores & Metals to start with, it eventually branched out into food, lumber, livestock, precious stones, lightsabre crystals, various types of stone & a wide range of other raw materials. The Admiral eventually stepped down from running the day to day business. A fair portion of the resources harvested are use to supply the other subsidiaries of the MandalMine Collective. The remaining resources are sold off to the highest bidder.

Star Forge Shipyards

Star Forge Shipyards Logo

Originally a vehicle company that produced a range of personal craft from landspeeders to space yachts, Star Forge Shipyards has most of its holdings in the Corporate Sector. It was acquired by the Admiral to provide the various craft needed by the other subsidiaries. Most of the craft Star Forge Shipyards makes are constructed in ground-based manufacturing planets. Craft under thirty meters are constructed on assembly lines, while craft up to five hundred meters are constructed in construction slips. Larger ships would require orbital construction facilities, which Star Forge Shipyards currently lacks.

Starfire Security

Starfire Security logo

Starfire Security was originally a small mercenary company operating in the Arkanis Sector in the Outer Rim. Due to the MandalMine Collective's troubled history of being subject to violent pirate raids, enemy assaults, & Jedi/Sith attacks, MandalMine Collective bought out the company for its own use. Starfire Security is mainly tasked with the defense of the various holdings and properties owned and operated by the MandalMine Collective. However, the forces that aren't busy at any give time are hired out as mercenaries & troubleshooters. Additionally, Starfire Security produces, trains & sells clones. These clones are produced in the Kaminoan style due primarily to the number of Kamino scientists that fled the planet when the Admiral abandoned the planet.

The SS is broken into two branches, the Naval & Security Brigades. The Naval Brigade (SSNB) which is made up of hyperspace capable craft; & the Security Brigade (SSSB) which is made up of security operative and the non-hyperspace capable craft and droids that they require. The Praetorian Guard is technically a third branch, however, it reports directly to the Admiral & serves as bodyguards to Board of Officers, as well as internal security.

The standard genetic stock used for the clones that are used in the Naval Brigade, Security Brigade & Praetorian Gaurd is that of a genetically modified female Draethos. The modifications introduced to the genetic stock were increased intelligence & obedience. However, these destined to join the Security Brigade are carefully trained to work in independent fire teams of four. The standard genetic stock is not sold, & is only produced for private use.

Naval Brigade

Serving as a deterrent to any pirate or raider force that would seek to attack MandalMine Collective holdings, the Naval Brigade is made up of the best spacecraft that money can buy. Due to the decentralized nature of the holdings of the MandalMine Collective, the Naval Brigade is primarily composed of corvettes, small escort craft, & Starfighters. The standard genetic stock makes up the vast majority of ship crews, both in Starfire Security & in the other subsidiaries. The various ships of the Naval Brigade are plated with an alloy call Havod giving the ships a deep red colouration.

The Naval Brigade is divided up into several Operational Fleets, these fleets are usually spread over vast tracks of space & will rarely gather in one place for anything less than a full scale emergency. The current list of active Naval Brigade Operational Fleets is provide below.

Security Brigade

Spacetrooper
The operatives of the Security Brigade have been trained to the utmost degree. The reason for this is that they occasionally have to repel more powerful forces, including Jedi & Sith on occasion. The operatives have been trained to be able to combat Force & lightsabre wielding adversaries.

Each operative is clad in glossy black combat armour with a mirrored faceplate, this adds tremendously to the intimidation factor that each operative presents to any would be trouble maker. The fact that they usually work in teams of four often makes the even bravest or most foolish soul pause & reconsider their actions for a moment.

Functionally, the armour is nearly indistinguishable from the armour worn by the stormtroopers of the Galactic Empire. Specifically Light Zero-G Assault Stormtrooper Armour, note that this is the unarmed version of the Armour, though is still retains the increased size, armour, & other technological benefits. The standard weapon issued to the operatives is a compact sonic rifle with a grenade launcher attached to the underside. While the weapon is nearly as effective as a blaster against most targets, it has a small advantage in that it can't be blocked or reflected by a lightsabre. A small bracer-style flamethrower is also issued to each operative and is is generally worn on top of their armour. Finally, each operative wears a bandoleer with room for 5 kit items. The standard kit layout is 3 fragmentation grenades, 1 flash-bang grenade, & 1 medpac, but may be different based on operative's needs. The following kit items are also available: grenades (Adhesive, CryoBan, Flame, flash-bang, fragmentation, Ion, Smoke, Stun); mines (Adhesive, Anti-Personnel, Anti-Vehicle, CryoBan); medpacs; MER command beacon (for directing local MER units); tactical strike beacons; & thermal detonators.

The Security Brigade is divided up into several Battalions. Each Battalion is made up of 500 fireteams of 4 Operatives each (2,000 Standard Operatives (Commando Troops) Total). It is rare for an entire Battalion to be deployed in a single engagement. It is completely unheard of for multiple Battalions to be deployed together. Generally, engagements that would require such numbers are thinned out by orbital fire before the Battalion is deployed. Vehicles are deployed as needed, With the following models currently in use.

The current list of active Security Brigade Battalions is as follows.

  • Geonosian Security Battalion
  • 1st Battalion
  • 2nd Battalion
  • 3rd Battalion
  • 4th Battalion
  • 5th Battalion
  • 6th Battalion
  • 7th Battalion
  • 8th Battalion
  • 9th Battalion
  • 10th Battalion

Praetorian Guard

The Praetorian Guard serves as a last line of defense against any hostile action against the Board of Officers or any other high ranking figure in the company. Clad in a red coloured variant of the standard Security Operative armour, the Praetorian Guard presents an intimidating front to any that might be foolish enough to try & attack their charge. In addition to the standard gear carried by every operative, each Praetorian guard also carries a single, crimson-coloured lightsabre. While they are not skilled enough with the sabres to match a more experienced knight or master, they are skilled enough to engage most sabre wielding enemies long enough for the other Guard members to bring other weapons to bear. Due to this & several other unusual circumstances there are even rumors that the Praetorian Guard includes Force users among its ranks, though these rumors are denied by the Board of Officers.
