History
The Maw Consortium was originally a small ten ship raiding group based out of the outdated Maw Installation formed several decades back. Their leader Void destroyed all information pertaining to his past once they had started to grow, secluding himself in the installation and communicating with the outside world via hologram. None the less the Consortium grew and began to rapidly do so when their tactics switched from plain Piracy to a much broader field of crime. First, Rackteering and Black Markets became popular, taking profits from the sales made in both areas, then as their numbers grew they began to partake in intimidation tactics and extortion. The Consortium then spent the next few decades increasing its wealth and steadily building up its coffers and fleet, finding a old, out dated, and poorly retained Lucrehulk-class Battleship. With this find they spent the money needed to rebuild it and allow for it to become a mobile base which is used much like a space station is, only this space station can use hyperspeed and change systems at will. The ship soon became the command and control center of the Consortium, guarded at all times by either the majority of the fleet. Or when it is sent on diplomatic mission, a fraction of the fleet, though enough to defend it from attacks, is sent to guard it. Dubbed the Galaxy's Shadow, it serves as the constant reminder of the hard work put into expanding and funding the consortium, and perhaps at one time, it can serve as the Consortium's flagship in conquests and heavy fleet operations.​
(This will be updated as IC RPs happen, something i have not seen happen much in these.)​
Ranking System within the Consortium:
Dominus Scelesto:
The head of the Maw Consortium, this individual has the complete command over the consortium much like a dictator or king would. Orders made by him are too be followed and the only ones with the power to question such orders and provide consul or alternatives are the Classis Admiraldis in the Consortium. The Dominus also has complete control over alliances and buisness transactions made by the Consortium and is present at the deals nine times out of ten, though he leaves the setup and running of the deals to the Classis Admiraldis.
Classis Admiraldis:
This rank is given to the admirals and generals of the Maw Consortium. They handle both the military operations that require a strategist or tactical strikes, or any large battles that involve the Consortium fleet(s) or ground force(s). They also run the financial and public relations of the Consortium, while being watched during said financial and public deals by the Dominus. Furthermore they have the highest say in the Consortium and command the highest respect. Their orders can only be questioned by others of their same rank and the Dominus, the latter of which can veto said actions and deliver consequences for such.
Iussi et Dixisse:
Those of this rank run small fleet operations, establish criminal enterprises, provide escort missions for those who pay, and oversee spec ops missions carried out by Equites Umbra. In other words they are the officers of the Consortium and command the respect given to someone of equal rank in other forces such as a captain. The are also highly trained infiltrators and strategist, but have not reach the rank of say a Classis Admiraldis. They oversee the construction of ports, setup of black markets, partake in intimidation and assassinations, and have full command over the Equites Umbra. The only ones with the authority to question their actions and reprimand them are the Classis Admiraldis and the Dominus.
Equites Umbra:
These are the Spec ops troops and body guards of the Classis Admiraldis. They are the ones intrusted with Assassinations, Black ops, and terror operations such as kidnappings, bombings, and intimidation tactics. Their training and conduct are oversaw by the Iussi and they answer directly to the Dominus but maintain loyalties to the chosen Iussi they are put under during missions or the Admiraldis they are assigned to protect. When used the Equites are to be feared by those they are sent at.
Imago Aspergillo/Inanis Accipitres:
These are the bulk of the Consortium's troops and pilots. They are basically the smugglers, troops, fighter pilots, engineers, and other miscellaneous groups that make up the Consortium's bulk.
Goals
  • Elimination of Slavery from the public markets of the galaxy.
  • Spread the influence of the Consortium to be able to truly stop slaving operations and governments once and for all.
  • Create and control trade routes through intimidation, purchase, or construction of ports.
  • Set up Black markets in opposing and allied factions, allowing for leaks in technology and maximum profit.
  • Set up Racketeering and extortion operations that allow for more credits to flow to the Consortium.
  • Rebuild and Retrofit the Maw Instillation into a fully functioning military and control base.
  • Bring set up contracts with commercial companies around the galaxy, allowing for another form of credit flow to reach the Consortium.\

I have both a request and a concern.

First the concern being that I've noticed your Economy, Foreign Affairs and first Four Goals; while being edited, are nearly an exact match to what I have written for the Most Serene Republic of Manda.

Maw Consortium
Economy:
The Maw Consortium's income is strongly focused on a heavy trade through mercantilism, pirate raids on cargo convoys and private yachts, and through smuggling. The operations are carefully planned out before doing executed, working on the information of moles and smugglers to attain the maximum profit in a deal, or the best payoff of a raid. With a primary focus upon the following areas.
  • Raiding supply lines and smaller shipping fleets
  • Monopolizing markets with staple ports / Acquisition and establishment of priority ports
  • Promoting Manufacturing and Industries held by intimidation tactics and smuggling buisnesses
  • Maximizing the use of underworld contacts and moles in major factions for the best payoffs.
Most Serene Republic of Manda
Economy:
The Most Serene Republic of Manda is a Merchant Republic with an Economy that is strongly focused on a heavily trade centric economical system with a limited mercantilism influence. The operation of which is through a highly deregulated system in which all citizens receive a share of the profits in exchange for lower taxes and less state intervention in certain areas. With a primary focus upon the following areas.
  • Building a network of colonies
  • Monopolizing markets with staple ports / Acquisition and establishment of priority ports
  • Promoting Manufacturing and Industry
  • Maximizing the use of Domestic Resources
Maw Consortium
Foreign Affairs:
Seeking to maintain a neutral stance throughout the galaxy, the Maw Consortium is focused on maintaining a neutral stance towards all governments in the Galaxy. Seeing their strength and power grow through creating alliances with major factions and subjecting minor ones to grow to the level of power in which they can act on their own. Their economy is focused upon and based around the need to secure raw materials from all factions to further their output of their manufactured goods along with their piracy and smuggling ventures.
Most Serene Republic of Manda
Foreign Affairs:
Seeking to maintain a neutral stance throughout the galaxy, the Most Serene Republic of Manda is focused on maintaining a neutral stance towards all governments in the Galaxy. Seeing their strength and power through maintaining their neutrality to ensure the safety and security of its citizenry. Likewise they are seeking to establish non-aggression pacts to further maintain their neutrality while also swearing off alliances to any single faction. Their economy is focused upon and based around the need to secure raw materials from all factions to further their output of their manufactured goods.
Maw Consortium
Goals:
  • The further acquisition of raw materials to continue the production and sale of manufactured goods
  • The acquisition and establishment of priority ports
  • The establishment of lucrative trade routes and new hyperspace routes
  • The founding and funding of local merchant guilds, manufacturing industries and other local industries

Even the last note is an exact copy as what is posted in the advertisement for the Most Serene Republic of Manda.

My request is this. I have put a lot of effort and time into the creation of the Most Serene Republic of Manda. While seeing what you have here; I notice that you too have that same drive and desire and the possibility of putting hard work and time. I request that you please rewrite what is clearly a copy with edits. You have the potential and ability to make it your own and all I ask is that you do so.

The reason i used yours as a basis is for two reasons.

One: I loved your structure, honestly, it was awesome. Im sorry that i copied the structure but i saw no other way to better it. That is why i copied the structure.
Two: The reason for the first four Goals being the same is quite frankly, because those are goals of the Consortium. I mean, i could reword the sentence, but it would pretty much say the same thing in the end. So, again i am sorry, but i see no point in retyping the same sentences in different, and mind you, possible worse wording than what i used.
In short, i have taken your concerns into thought and as such, am holding my ground. I see no reason as to go back and once more reword the sections because of the fact that they are similar in structure as the sentence structure was perfect for my typing style.

I apologized, but as i said, changing the wording would do nothing but make it sound worse, not to mention about 95% of it is my words and ideas. Im sorry i liked his structure enough to use it, im sorry a few of his goals were goals of my group to, and im damn well sorry i type like him. Now, if you would please leave this advertisement be so that it can do what it was created to do, advertise a faction. If you have an opinion, please let it be one that has a useful critic, or like Baobab's, address a specific issue, not just "Plagiarism is never cool."
