Xenith Industries

By:

A leader in weaponry manufacture

 

Xenith Industries

 

Xenith industries is the best weapons manufacturer in the galaxy, they make anything from missiles and bombs to concealed weapons and grenades, they also supply several mining companies with the explosives they need. Xenith was originally created in the year 3000 and has survived to the present day. Along the way they have participated in some of the most ambitious and costly weaponry projects including the race to make plasma stable and (unofficially) creating most of the ship Typhoon. The products they create are one of the highest qualities that you can buy, they are also extremely expensive. The metal required to make these products comes from a small moon that they have set p a mining base on, several other companies have also set up bases and are trying to take Xenith's land. Because Xenith is a weapons manufacturer the other companies generally are careful around them, but lately they have been getting more and more daring. The weaponry and ships they produce all carry the Xenith logo, a quarter moon with a red X.

A good start, but it's a name, a logo, and we know it's partially vertically integrated... but it doesn't tell us much. Let's ask the questions that can make it better. Not all of them need answered, but they're just ideas of how to flesh this out.

Like an NPC, a major corporation has a certain style, and for lack of a better word, personality. Is it forthright and ethical in its dealings, or will it cut corners and lie for a buck? Is it relatively green, greenwashed, or does it not care? It is an arms company - Who is reliant on it for arms? Does it sell primarily to armies? Does it sell on the grey market, to questionable persons? Is it forbidden from doing business anywhere?Does it have a massive skunkworks hidden somewhere, or does it mostly refine and perfect things that come out of a military lab? They have some sort of R&D somewhere, but how deeply can they keep it under wraps? How much corporate espionage does it partake in? Do they have any massive competitors? Do they tend to buy little companies for single technologies? Are they an important employer in some region? Are the workers rewarded and loyal, or disgruntled and ready for a buy-off? Do they often get protested? Is there a legion of fanatics that love the product that does hit the personal market?

Who is important on the board? Who actually calls the shots? How is it related to other corporations through the board? Have any of the major players hit scandal lately? Has this cost it anything? Does it have freely traded stock? Is it tracking the market, does it tend to do unusually well, or unusually poorly? Has it had any spikes or crashes lately?

I have to second what Siren said, as it is we have a visual and the grandiose claim that everything they make is expensive and teh best

Hmm

Very general, I think this needs to be fleshed out.

Maybe put it "In Work" until then ?

A good stub, but needs some more fleshing out as Siren already said.

One area I am most curious about is the origins behind the company, how did it first come into being and what was the creator like? Does it have an over all legacy or reputation the current owner/s are trying to live up to?

Also, what are some of it's primary competitors like? Do they engage in industrial espionage to any extent? Are they above selling prototypes on the black market for "field testing" and to turn a fast profit?

Tossing this into the advice requested area and giving it an overhaul/expansion could turn it into a solid useful piece for any sci-fi setting.

Castoria, Land of Shattered Stars

       By: Veretrix

Castoria was once a thriving and prosperous nation, a rich trade center for the surrounding lands. This all changed when, on one fateful night nearly a century ago, the Mist of Eternity rolled in and surrounded the land, obscuring more of the outside world as days and nights passed.

By the time the Mist blocked out the sun, a new light shone during what was assumed to be daytime: The Starpoint Spire, a mysterious place atop Castoria's highest peak in the northern-central region. Some say that there is some sort of building atop the mountain shining the dim "sunlight" onto the land, but it is only ever too bright or too dark to fully make out any structure, not to mention the mountain's immense height.

Not a month after the Spire's light lit up, the stars fell. Flaming rocks and debris from far-flung edges of space plummeted downward onto the eastern region of Castoria. Once the shower subsided, a strange energy from within the fallen stars transformed the eastern lands in what are now known as The Voidwastes, a barren gray land littered with craters and strange alien creatures (these can vary, but I had Pathfinder's Akatas in mind).

To the south, strange mechanism of eldritch origin are again at work after aeons of rest in the Ruins of Kchuthngnl, an ancient city of non-human creation that is estimated by scholars to be no less that five millennia old.

To the west, the once peaceful and serene forest, now known as The Plagued Woods, has been experiencing corruptions of the wildlife and humanoids living there. Some humans have reported creatures that appear not unlike a halfling, except that they can open their mouths to massive proportions to swallow creatures the size of an ogre.

When adventurers and citizens alike try to make an escape from Castoria, they are never seen again, and it is utterly unknown whether they found hopeful sanctuary or agonizing death withing the Mist's depths.

What is unknown to all residents of Castoria is that all of these events occurred because of the actions of a secret but powerful cult loyal to the Elder Gods who call the space between the planes their abhorrent home. The cult still lives on, larger than ever, and their plan is for the alien horrors to incubate and thrive within the dome of mist that now envelops Castoria, so that when the Elder Gods return as the cult's prophecy foretells, they will have an army of blasphemous creation at their disposal that they will use to make war with and enslave the denizens of the Material Plane.
