Xenith Industries


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

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.

the dead mechent of death

       By: celticring

To Dougles Nye money is power, a powerful wizard only newly into lich-hood

Originally the son of servants to a noble family, yet he found that life humiliating. "How could anyone stand to serve another?" he often wondered. His father, was a greedy man who offered an explanation one day “It’s all for the coin, every demanding, humiliating thing. It’s for the coin, boy."

So when Dougles began developing the potential for magic, he found a way out of a life of servitude. Learning magic though stolen books, he made his escape. Taking the all the possessions of the lord’s vaults with him. He set out to gain as much money as possible.

His gifts for magic allowed him many advantages other merchants could only dream of. Capitalized on the use of deviation magic, allowing him to always having what the city he is in needs most, whether that is wheat or weapons, poison or drug doesn’t matter to him.

Some would say he follows war, disease, famine, and political strife like a vulture looking for a nice carcass to claim. What they don’t know is he has a hand in the conflict he supposedly follows. Assassinating ruler to incite wars, casting spells that decimating crops, acting as an information broker to both sides in a conflict. Dougles is known as a man who can get what you need to some, to other a monster who capitalizes on the suffering of others.

The lich know as Dougles Nye, prefers the title ”The Merchant of Death” for that shows just how much power money has earned him.
