Founded by Kraethas Nova, the Crimson Falcon Courier Service (CFCS) is a legitimate shipping and transport business based on Nar Shaddaa. The company takes on deliveries both onworld and beyond, serving long-term contracts as well as adhoc requests. While it is not a gigantic corporation making millions of credits, this decently sized company still negotiates its way through awkward allegiances and difficult contracts, trying to make ends meet in one of the shadiest places in the galaxy.
As the concept might indicate, the business is ICly neutral. OOC the guild is on the Imperial side, though we are happy to RP with people on the Rep side as well (some of us have Rep clones of our characters for sneaky excursions across the faction border).
Business comes to the guild in a variety of ways. Contracts are sometimes offered by PCs with IC needs and sometimes we invent jobs doled out by NPCs. That isn't to say we only RP within the confines of our own guild, we often interact with players and/or organisations from beyond. This has included cross-guild RP with folks like the Blackscars (ICly they are meanies, OOC they are darlings), taking part in the public Droid Uprising plot, forming a team for the Golden Mogul Huttball tournament and regularly hosting a market stall for the Jiguuna Revival.
Suffice it to say, we are always looking to diversify! Cross faction, new groups, organisations or individuals, we love it all!
If you have an idea for business to or from CFCS, don't be shy! Individual, group or guild, we want to hear from you IC, OOC or both.

Pilots are the foundation of the service. Whilst the company uses droids for many standard deliveries, some require the skills of organic pilots.
Flying shuttles, freighters or speeders are all part of the job, ensuring that the clients' cargo gets to its location. Sometimes a flight may come under fire, putting a pilot's evasion and even gunnery skills to the test.
|Security Officers report directly to the Chief of Security. They form a team that is responsible for protecting the property and staff of CFCS.|
Their duties include patrolling the premises, checking security systems and providing security for shipments, which may become ludicrously dangerous or may go smoothly.
Sometimes officers may be required to investigate local criminal activity or disruptions with shipments.
|The company utilises secure databases for various operations, and therefore requires specialists to keep all of that data secure, both from accidental losses or malicious attacks.|
These Data Security Specialists may also be required to assist the security team with information searches inside or outside the company.
The latter may take the form of information gathering via the Holonet or onsite, or could involve slicing cameras and other systems to assist a security team on a mission to protect company assets or track down criminals.
|CFCS also hires on roles that support the core business, such as mechanics, medical staff, administrators or training specialists.|
You can read more on some of those potential roles here. If you have another idea for how your character could be a great addition to the company, let us know!
What do we mean by "business RP"? Meetings, watercooler chatting (we don't actually have watercoolers… but we do have a nice employee lounge), various training for staff and most importantly, the work itself - deliveries and shipments that are the core of the CFCS. If you want your character to have a (relatively) normal job working for a legitimate company, here we are!
We offer a weekly guild event that might be a shipping job, a security escort or even a cookie delivery. Our events range from speeder chase shoot-outs with criminals to animal cargo shenanigans. Sometimes it's dangerous and sometimes it's silly. Some events will lead on to others, forming on-going plots with recurring NPCs, locations or groups that your own character can investigate and come to love or hate.
Our guild stronghold is based on Nar Shaddaa both IC and OOC and acts as the CFCS business headquarters. It is publicly accessible and anyone is free to walk into the lobby to arrange a business meeting. For staff, the HQ is a place to engage in day-to-day business tasks, training or bump into fellow employees. See here for more info on the HQ.
IC and OOC communication
We have an enjin website (constantly linked throughout this thread) and Discord server, both of which we use for IC and OOC interactions. We like to chill out and chat with one another OOC, send IC holomail or write up IC reports. The IC sections of both the website and the Discord are restricted based on a character's access. Staff can see a lot more than visitors and management can see everything.
Interesting but ICly employable characters
If your character has a dark mysterious past, that's great! But make sure those secrets don't crop up at awkward times. As much as we OOCly want to keep everyone happily employed, if your character makes it clear to the Chief of Security that they're a psycho, they won't realistically stay employed for long.
Dedication of time
This doesn't mean ALL of your precious time, of course, but we like to see a certain level of activity from members. We want both a believable work atmosphere and also to establish relationships between characters - the glue that sticks RP together!
We like to see people who are interested in making their own RP between events, whether it's something as simple as asking another character if they'll join yours in the employee lounge for a cup of caf, or something as involved as offering to do an on the spot package delivery or training session. We also greatly welcome any members who like to DM their own events, though this is by no means expected.
We want to hang out with cool people!
Our interviews and applications are handled almost entirely IC, with OOC sticking to any scheduling and a handful of questions at the end of the interviews to get an idea of your availability. Like applying for a position with any real business, there are no guarantees that your character will get the job if they get an interview. It is up to them to convince the Manager and the Chief of Security that they're perfect for the position and for the company!
See here for more on our recruitment process.
Please contact any of the Officers OOCly if you need more information that you can't find on our website. Contact Kraethas or Rennae for any IC needs.
