History

The Scarlet Order is a company born from war.

In the year 2544, The United Planets of Earth waged a war against the Tevarin race.
During Operation Nemesis and The Battle of Idris IV, casualties climbed into the tens of thousands. Tremendous strain was levied against relief efforts and supply chains. The United Planets of Earth initiated a civilian militia initiative, offering tidy sums of currency to those willing to help in security escorts, supply runs, and medical support.

A team came together on earth to set out for the battle torn planet Idris IV at the onset of Operation Nemesis. Along the way they bonded, and developed decent working relations.

On the surface of Idris IV, these civilian men and women were overwhelmed by the devastation. They worked day and night with little to no sleep seeking wounded and dying soldiers and triaging them so that they may live long enough to be transported to a proper medical facility. After a particularly long and laborious day, one of the men heard Sergeant Adam Corr, an infiltration team leader during the operation comment about the amount of soldiers blood was on their clothing and started referring to them as “The Scarlet Order”. The civilian men and women of the “The Scarlet Order” became used to the name, and eventual felt honored by it. To date, the name instills a sense of honor and virtue among its members.

For the duration of the Tevarin war, The Scarlet Order helped the United Planets of Earth in multiple theaters of battle. They serviced the men and women of all branches of the military.

With the subjugation of the tevarins and the rise of Ivar Messer, The Scarlet Order was no longer offered contracts by the newly reformed United Empire of Earth government. The order began offering services to a civilian market and roamed the human systems hunting high paying contracts.

After the fall of the Messers, The Scarlet Order found a perfect base of operations in the dying Tyrol system. They operate out of Haven and Front Row and service high paying clients in the nearby Goss system. While they are still a proud group of highly trained personnel, some of the ethics and sense of honor have faded from the Order. Most members offer escorts to those who wish to pass by the Olympus Pool of Goss, others run medical clinics and farms, while others exploit the riches of the Goss system in other ways.

Out Of Fiction History

The Scarlet Order was originally a Star Wars the Old Republic guild. We were originally a pre-release guild with a little over one hundred players. After launch, we achieved multiple server firsts in end game content and flourished to numbers over 200 members. After the game went free to play, we started to loose interest in the game. Leaders stopped recruiting, raid leaders stopped raiding and eventually we all went separate ways.

The few of us who remained friends, play different games together but not as a part of any group. Until now. The Scarlet Order is being reworked and re branded to fit into the Star Citizen universe. Our initial few members have years of experience running guilds in other games and many of us have years of experience in testing Star Citizen alpha. We have a decent sized fleet for starting out and more than one member in the Evocati Test Flight.

Manifesto

The primary motivation of The Scarlet Order is the make a profit while adhering to a code of honor that benefits the greater good. That is not to say that they always adhere to lawful action as The Scarlet Order does skirt the line of law, and sometimes crosses it.

The following constitutes the core of values of The Scarlet Order:

  1. Conduct all actions with the betterment of the order in mind.
  2. Never operate at a deficit.
  3. Put your fellow members ahead of yourself.
  4. Never conduct acts of piracy or murder.
  5. Never refuse a profitable contract, unless it violates another of our core values.

In this set of core values, a member of The Scarlet Order would never participate in the raid of a freighter, but he may very well escort a paying client who does such deeds. Similarly he would not assassinate a political figure, but he may sell a shipment of munitions to someone who does.

Charter

Player Rules

The Scarlet Order requires members to be 21 years old or older. In addition to this they must agree to adhere to this charter and remain active in the Organization. This doesn’t mean they have to play Star Citizen, but must participate in the Organization in some way. Avid posters on our spectrum, frequenting our discord, playing games with other members are all things that count as activity.

  • Members must not grief any other players.
  • Members must not intentionally upset other members.
  • Members should be at least 21 years old. Some exceptions may apply.
  • Members who sign up for events must give 24 hours notice if they cannot attend.

Governance

The Scarlet Order operates as a sort of headless parliament. Three members of parliament make up what we call Circle of Suns who represent each of the three houses of the order who represent the wants, needs, wishes and votes of their house non affiliate members. The initial three members of the Circle of Suns are founders of the Organization and as such are not elected. However, as we move forward there will be opportunities for members to challenge a member of Circle of Suns for their position. And no, this is not a fight to the death. They simply need to present a case to the other two members of Circle of Suns who will hear the case and present relevant information to the Organization to vote on.

Ranks

  1. Circle of Suns: this rank makes up the Organization parliament. They gather and institute rules, regulations, and major changes to the Organization and its many functions. They are technically not a leadership role as they are not the enforcers like the House Directors are. They are more like the curators, and representatives. This rank uses the house appropriate 5 star badge icon.
  2. House Director: this rank is administration who is entrusted to act on behalf of the Circle of Suns. They are not allowed to change rules or regulations, but they are given the ability to promote members up to the Ship Captain rank and demote players down to initiate. They are the leaders of the Organization. This rank uses the house appropriate 5 star badge icon.
  3. Commander: this rank is exactly what it states. The player is authorized to lead a wing of 1-4 ships. Be it fighters or destroyers. His orders should be obeyed in formations and can only be superseded by a House Director. This rank uses the house appropriate 4 star badge icon.
  4. Ship Captain: this rank is essentially the same rank as a senior member with one key difference. They own a multi crew ship that supports more than two players. Outside of their ship, they are the same in rank and authority as Senior Members. Inside their ship they hold rank over their crew. This rank uses the house appropriate 3 star badge icon.
  5. Senior Member: this rank is a proven member who has some authority over members and initiates. They are earmarked as having completed all promotion requirements and prerequisites and have a 6 month or more membership. This rank uses the division appropriate 3 star badge icon.
  6. Member: After 30 days, initiates are made members. Which is the base, non probationary rank. This rank uses the house appropriate 2 star badge icon.
  7. Initiate: this is a new recruit who is in the process of being vetted. This probationary period lasts 30 days from recruitment date. This rank uses the house appropriate 1 star badge icon.

Promotions

To be considered for promotions within The Scarlet Order, players must complete the following prerequisites:
Join our spectrum/discord.

  1. Read and agree to our charter (this document).
  2. Be a non affiliate member.
  3. Once a player completes the initial prerequisites, they must meet or exceed the ranks time requirement.
  4. At the recruitment phase of each member, a spectrum thread is created for peer review. This thread exists for other members to post feedback, which will be reviewed by house directors monthly to determine promotions and demotions.

Demotions

Grounds for demotions are on a case by case basis.

Some examples of grounds for demotion is violating player rules define in this document.
