Riva Dorata - The Golden Shores of Corellia
« on: May 19, 2007, 04:59:26 PM »
"The Five Sons of Corell, wise with age
 fell in love with Brother Corellia's stage.
 The gold watered shores, velvet-felt breeze Whispers from sprites, the magic from trees.
The breath from the mountain, the soul of blood
The fruits of Corellia's labor, the sculpter's mud.
But where is the true stage? Where is the light?
Riva Dorata and it's star blanketed night."

 - Hari Seldona ( Alderaanian Poet= Written a year before the Destruction of her homeworld)


Planet: Corellia
City: Riva Dorata
Coordinates: -2026 1088 (Close to Kor Vella)
Mayor: Aonin Halephax, Lady Dionne (Aphordite), Jiurra, Sarai Phime (Saraphim)
Head of Security: Briianne Kasii (Briikase), CorSc

A History:

   In 380 BBY, A Corellian Jedi named Keiran Halcyon defeated the Afarathu pirates, a sect of Selonian terrorist. This much is general knowledge to those on Corellia. However, what isn't common knowledge is the many battles that helped win this war on terror. Kor Vella was hardly brought into the battle because of the actions taken during the "Battle of Dorata". The Afarathu pirates, in their attempt to retreat to Kor Vella for one last attack, found themselves pinned down. During the "Battle of Dorata", Corellian soldiers and citizens worked together in order to rid our great planet from this threat. Ditches were dug throughout the land, and it is here that many citizens lost their lives. In the end, however, the terrorists were caught and brought to Corellian Justice. It is because of those that died and served during the "Battle of Dorata" that Kor Vella still stands.
   
  In 120 BBY, Mayor of Kor Vella, Hyn Cornav, made the location of the "Battle of Dorata" a planet-wide monument. It was here that the rule that no ditch would be filled in. They would remain until nature covered them. As Hyn Cornav said in his speech "Let Corellia decide when its children should be buried". The ditches were then reinforced once last time by the planet before letting nature take its hold.
   
  In 10 BBY, Corellia had become distracted from the monument. It had fallen to disarray and if not for the action of Mayor Yive Drake, the monument wouldn't have lasted. Spending his entire savings in order to buy the rights to land, he began building a city. This city was not to replace the monument. It was to live with the monument. Though some might find the random ditches to be a nuisance, the locals are fiercely loyal to them, claiming that is where their blood rest.The city took five years to complete and was then proudly proclaimed Riva Dorata. In basic, it means "Golden Shores".

   Riva Dorata has been known for a small resort town for far too long. Under the new leadership, the city is throwing its hat into the race to becoming one of the new major cities of Corellia. Will it succeed? Well, that is for you to decide.

Riva Dorata: Present.

   Riva Dorata is under new leadership. The council in charge has remained in secret, but the citizens have already seen their growing influence on the planet. Already, an Imperial Garrison has been placed on the outskirt of the city. Not only that, but merchants are finally being welcomed into the city such as Aonin Halephax's Halephax Munitions. Not only that, but a prestigious university led by noble Lady Dione has recently been given rights to open up its doors to the young ladies and men of Riva Dorata. Fountains are being replanted, cantinas are opening, business is flourishing. It is only a matter a time before this once small-time resort town becomes a major political and economic power of Corellia.

Rules:

RIVA DORATA: [legislation and by-laws Section 5345-IV, subsection onith:] Summary of “Common Law” subject to the citizens of the township of Riva Dorata as enforced by CorSec Auxiliary [Detachment Cresh Senth Aurek – DXCIV]

(b) Weapons may only be carried by members of a governmental security or military force in the following locations:
  (1) government buildings,
  (2) educational facilities,
  (3) star ports,
  (4) public locations with posted warnings, or
  (5) other facilities where it is deemed unsafe and publicly designated as such.

((Weapons are not allowed inside of civic structures under any circumstances except by the Security Force and, under certain circumstances, the city leaders. Just keep weapons holstered, please. If you choose not to, Security will react and it may end up with IC consequences))

1-33-7786. Corellian Security Force Auxiliary Activation.
(a) If there is an issue within the borders of a city, township, or village, whether inside of a building, or outside of a building, that requires the activation of our security force or one of the other special forces we have within the town, the Citizens are to stand down.
(b) Any citizen that does not obey security and chooses to interfere in an event or situation in which Security is involved or has to take charge will be considered a threat and a liability.
(e) Any citizen who disobeys or breaks a security rule will be summarily arrested and charged with interference with an authorized security operation, punishable according to the discretion of a Corellian magistrate.
(f) Should a citizen decide to interfere, they will also accept the sole responsibility of putting themselves in danger should Security have to take action.
(g) Any citizen who is injured by a member of Security or our special forces for interfering accepts such as their own liability for getting involved.

((If you choose to get involved in a situation and decide not to listen to Security, city leaders, or the special forces, then you accept responsibility for your actions and understand that your character will be punished for violating or interfering with a security matter))

Directive 66-8-1664. Religious Zealousness.
(a) By order of the Galactic Empire and Corellian Sector Moff, any and all Jedi activity is deemed illegal and punishable by death.
(b) Any Corellian Security Force Trooper or Auxiliary Trooper is required to report any and all possible Jedi activity to the local Imperial Garrison or Detachment.

  (1) open endorsement of the Jedi or similar order;
  (2) display of Jedi or supernatural powers; or
  (3) display of Jedi weapons or other paraphernalia related to outlawed religious organizations.

((Cloaks are welcomed. Lightsabers and robes are not smiled upon in the city. We understand that sometimes a plot calls for a Jedi to come out of hiding, but try to warn us OOC first. We will gladly work with you on it.))

2-45-299945. Alignment.
(a) Corellia and the cities, townships, and villages within are democratic.
(b) Each citizen is given the right to speak freely and publicly regarding his or her opinion regarding the current state of Corellian government. This does not extend to the Galactic Government.
(c) Peaceful demonstrations against planetary (Not Galactic) ruling is permitted, if accompanied by law enforcement.
(d) Violent demonstrations are strictly prohibited and may result in fines, imprisonment, or adjudication by Imperial law enforcement.
((We know Rebels and Imperials can march in at any time and take over. However, for the enjoyment of all involved, we would obviously like to preserve the feel of a neutral haven. We do not want to become another Mos Eisley, nor a "roleplaying Restuss". Talk of the GCW, is fine. Those who proclaim themselves proudly serving any group might get a few eyes on them: Rebels because its stupid and Imperial because this is a town of non-conformists and democrats. To clarify the rule in regards to Imperials, if a lone Imperial officer comes in talking smack, don't try handling it yourself. This could still affect the city as a whole and that's not the kind of trouble we need at the drop of a hat.))

OOC RULES:


Everyone is welcome.
Everyone, and we mean EVERYONE, is welcome in Riva Dorata. Yes, we don't want a legion of stormtroopers to start marching through our streets, but that doesn't mean all Imperials are banned from Riva Dorata. Veterans and new players are all welcomed to the city. For the new players, we understand that you might not understand all the rules and that is fine. We will answer any questions you have. As for any other cities or groups that wish to contact us, please do. We would love to set up story lines involving smuggling goods and such as well.

OOC Talk in Spatial
Riva Dorata is an IC town. If we see large amounts of OOC chat in spatial, we will talk to you privately. Yes, we don't mind the occasional comment in OOC, but we don't want a large conversation that lasts for hours to go on in spatial. So, please, just watch out for it.

Respect
We will respect you if you respect us. Don't try to burn down the cantina and call us elitists when your character becomes designated “shoot or arrest on sight”.

IC Consequences for IC Actions
Obviously we don’t want anyone to not feel welcome in Riva Dorata. To add to the immersion for everyone involved, however, there will be consequences for your actions within our city. If you try to blow up the cantina, you’ll probably find yourself chased out of town if you return the next day or the next week looking for a drink. If you are always trying to start a fight, Security will become your new best friend while you’re within our borders, and if you get too troublesome for them, they may ask you to leave. Please keep in mind that these are all IC reactions and should not be attributed to OOC malice.

For those people that choose not to contact us OOCly regarding plots in this townand instead  try to ICly destroy the town or ICly kill the city leadership, your characters will be ignored by the town as a whole unless citizens choose to interact with you. Should you attempt RPing said plot, it will be assumed your character is dead or does not exist.

Halephax Munitions will have a Wiki up within the week for ordering, timeframe, etc, since it's a lot cheaper than a website and has all the fancy type things with graphics and links and such.

In the following weeks there will be subsequent posts featuring different places in Riva.  And hopefully we will have a event for the town as soon as all the buildings are up and running.

Corellian News:

It strikes me with despair that I am to inform you that Mayor Darius Welp has died of natural causes. He died at the respectable age of 107 years old. Though Mayor Darius Welp leaves us today, we will let Riva Dorata continue to flourish as he planned. A Council of his most respected individuals has been assigned to lead this town by the citizens of Riva Dorata. Please make sure to lower your head in silence in respect to Mayor Darius Welp. He made dreams come true.

:A List of names appear at the bottom of the news, showing off the new council members:

(Aonin, Jiurra, Lady Dionne ( Aphrodite ), Saraphim have now began leading this town. They do so with convictions and hope for the health of the community. Though it saddens me to leave Riva Dorata, I must return to Red Sands. The past few weeks, I have done less and less until now, they've taken over finishing the rules and buildings of Riva Dorata. If you have any questions, you can start reporting to them. They are respected in the community, and it has been an honor working with them. Thank you.)

When it says Corellia is democratic, (implying the city is as well)...does that mean there will actually be terms to offices and elections? 

It would be nice if there was actually a way to work your way into the management of an existing player city instead of always have to split things up by building your own and competing for business just to get a shot at it.

Though I am not really part of the Council, let me be the one to say that having open elections for a city is extremely hard. It is extremely hard to keep a base of operation running. So, as the Council seems to be set up now, it isn't on an OOC basis.

I have to agree with deson.

Due to the fact anyone with zoning rights can run for mayor, and sometimes people will impress you long enough to GET them (See Kyzal) and try to usurp power...it can be very tricky. In fact, Imperia Gardens was destroyed when our first asshole mayor got mad that other people ran for city hall and he decided to pull up the city hall and destroy the city. We had to start ALL over.

So that's always a consideration :/
