Welcome to the Republic of Lorell
Survivors of a Government-sanctioned holocaust, remnant of a colony long forgotten, a fleet seeking a new beginning...
Lorell was a young, but proud frontier colony, founded at the height of the Messer era. Though small and remote, its extensive network of mines and its many ordnance factories commanded the respect and co-operation of a number of neighboring systems, giving it considerable pull throughout the surrounding sector and, to a lesser degree, the galactic community as a whole. Though Lorelli munitions accounted for just a small percentage of those used by the UEEN during the Second Tevarin War, it was nevertheless considered an important military asset and access in and out of the Lorelli system was tightly controlled throughout the war.
After the war ended, Lorell faced a sharp economic decline and, feeling as though they had been used and discarded, was among the first worlds to secretly pledge support to anti-Messer elements within the United Empire of Earth. Lorell's mines and refineries were expanded despite gross losses and its factories churned out munitions by the thousands, signalling its intentions. Small, neighboring colonies began their own preparations, some of them armed with Lorelli weaponry.
The Messer response was swift and merciless, targeting the heart of the fledgling resistance; Lorell itself. The Lorelli fleet, little more than a band of armed merchant vessels and planetary security craft, could not compete with a massive force that had gained its veterancy in two bloody wars with the Tevarin. Within a single Earth day, Lorell fell, its settlements and factories reduced to cinder and ash. The Lorell Alliance, as it had recently come to be called, crumbled, with even the most loyal of Lorell's allies falling backing into line. Purged from the annals of history, the remote colony, its valuable contributions during the Second Tevarin War and its failed attempt at resisting an oppressive regime, was soon forgotten.
The heavy bombardment of their homeworld resulted in a disaster of cataclysmic proportions. Lorell itself, having been subjected to extensive mining for well over a century, cracked and then shattered under the intense pressure, destroying much of the orbiting UEE fleet and sending its two moons spiralling out of orbit. Despite the carnage, three disparate groups of transports and freighters packed full with Lorelli survivors managed to escape the system, the act of which was followed by the destabilisation of Lorell's lone jump point. Pursued through the collapsing jump point by the remnants of the decimated UEE task force, the last vestiges of Lorelli civilization were scattered among the far reaches of the known galaxy; unable to be reunited again for over three centuries. However, running through the veins of their descendants is a relentless spirit and an undying will to not only survive, but thrive. Their hope to once again unite and re-establish a colony beyond the UEE's reach shines as brightly as the stars themselves.
All recruitment is handled on a case by case basis. Candidates are welcome to approach an officer or an officer is just as likely to approach an individual or organisation. Following an interview and upon acceptance a recruit is usually subject to a 2 week probationary period before becoming a full member. Interviews may be held in character or out of character dependant on circumstance.
The Republic of Lorell allows for both Military and Civilian career paths with a variety of available options in each. The basic structure of the Republic is a democracy, with the civilian side being looked after by the Council of Lorell, made up of both elected and appointed representatives and Secretaries, lead by the elected Speaker. The military is looked after by the Office of the Admiralty, and supported by the Command Staff.
The Lorelli Military is seeking steadfast and loyal personnel to join the ranks for the purpose of defending the Republic and its citizens. By joining the Lorelli military you will enter into a career where dedication, loyalty and honor are prized. Choose from becoming a fighter pilot, a crewman on a flagship or aim for the position of an officer.
The life of a civilian is no less exciting than that of a member of the military, and Lorell is seeking those who may be less inclined to hold a gun to join them in achieving their goal of becoming a self-sustaining colony. Join one of the many business crews that already make up the Republic, or set up your own. Whether you are interested in science, medical, mining or salvage, there is something for you here.
One day, they will have a home again. A nation of conscience. A nation where no voice goes unheard. A nation where justice prevails and freedom reigns.
