Grand Architectural Builds Completed on Byss

September 11, 2012

Reporters Daana Kira and Rakiko Lowtide traveled to the Sith Empire’s capital on Byss to see the city’s redesign.

Landing at the Imperial Square

Making our way through the strong atmospheric storms over Byss, we landed at the capital, where one is overwhelmed by the Majesty of the Imperial Square and surrounding buildings. Here we met with Darth Infestus, the key architect for the rejuvenation and redesign of the Sith Empire’s capital.

Because of the chaotic nature of Byss geology it was necessary to move much of the capital as tectonics had caused even more aggressive strains upon the old capital. Taking advantage of the necessity, the Emperor had ordered the new capital to be stronger, larger and more impressive than the last, a job Darth Infestus and his men jumped into. Using the skills and experiences they gained since coming to Byss, they built a fortified capital that could take advantage of the Darkside Nexus present in this system.

Darth Infestus speaking about the buildin gof the new Capital.

The Main Square is where visitors and citizens can come to gather and begin their journey through the capital, to witness the might of the Empire and have at their fingertips anything they desire, from restaurants to museums, to cutting edge skyscrapers and one of a kind shops. Also there are several symbols of the Empire’s focus on order such as the public execution area of to the side of the main square. Darth Infestus stated the Empire would not tolerate crime and would use the public executions as a warning and deterrent to others.

The military will also have a strong presence as they are also taxed with protecting the city. Several of the buildings and private areas are devoted to them. Also present will be most of the arms of the government such as the Emperor’s offices and the Ministry of Internal Pacification, a law enforcement agency. Most high government areas are still located in the expanded Citadel.

A view from the main street.

When visitors first arrive to Byss, their first landing point will still be on the SSD Ravager where they will then take shuttles to the surface once cleared. The Byss and other Imperial citizens have already been able to move and take advantage of the city, but Darth Infestus now declares the city open to all from the Galaxy.

    ((Beautiful sim. Byss and Dromund Kaas are easily amongst the best sims in SWRP, if not the very best.))

    I have suspicions that slave labor was used in this, but I have no facts to back this up yet. I will have to divert system resources toward researching this.

    ((Truly amazing work!))

    (( If only more builds in SWRP were of this caliber. Truly, I think this is the most stunning build I’ve seen in 6+ years of SWRP. ))
