Dominions allow Major Factions to claim entire hexes without direct competition from other factions.
  • At any point, a Major Faction may acquire an adjacent SWRP Chaos Map hex by completing a Dominion thread, posting to the Map Update thread, and receiving Staff approval.
  • A Dominion counts as a Player Vs Environment (PvE) thread.
  • A Dominion thread’s title must include the name or acronym of the Major Faction, and the name of a planet visible in the hex.
  • A Dominion may only be started on a hex adjacent to the Major Faction’s influence cloud.
  • A hex lost as the result of an Invasion may not have a Dominion thread started on it by the defeated faction for 30 days after the announcement of the Invasion result.
  • Other Major or Minor Factions may not interfere with a Dominion thread. They may participate as In-Character aid or opposition with the approval of the Faction Admins/Owner of the Major Faction undertaking the Dominion


Once a Major Faction has posted a completed Dominion thread to the Map Update thread, an Admin will assign an RPJ to judge whether the thread meets the following criteria. The RPJ will sign the ‘Approval’ field in the Map Update template, or will contact the submitter if further work is needed.

  • STORY - Does the Dominion thread have a story (or group of stories) that makes sense and that comes to a reasonable conclusion?
  • REPRESENTATION - How well is the Faction represented in the Dominion thread? For example, if two members post the bulk of the thread back-to-back, the Dominion is unlikely to be approved without more work from other Faction members.
  • EFFORT - How much effort has the Faction put into the thread? As a general guideline, 30 average posts is an acceptable effort. A lower number of posts may be acceptable if clear effort has resulted in solid stories that reach a natural conclusion. Spammed posts with minimal effort will count against the Faction.
