    The Praetorian Curiate Assembly: Objectives-based gameplay for Imperial CMDRs

    PCA is an objectives-based wing
    , and our CMDRs engage in power-scale BGS, PMF BGS, and powerplay. Pilots interested in joining will have the opportunity to become fluent in both powerplay and BGS mechanics through their participation in our projects.

    Our roster is dedicated to Patreus, whether through supporting our faction in the Senator's domain, engaging in power-scale BGS, or moving merits in support of powerplay operations.

    We support the Duke Alden Rowe's Praetorian Curiate Assembly of SPOCS 900, building a high population, asset-rich faction with a diverse economy. Every new system and station are part of our story, with news articles and roleplay marking major events. We're still building our lore and encourage our CMDRs to participate. Check out our Documents page for more.


    • PCA shares the Patreus discord and so is part of the Patreus community.
    • We protect Patreus systems through fortification.
    • We attack Federal systems through undermining.
    • We grow the Empire through expansion.
    • We participate in the wider organized Imperial powerplay community.

    Power-Scale BGS:

    • We install patronages and feudal factions in Patreus space.
    • We protect favorable governments by monitoring Patreus control spheres for conflicts.
    • We reduce the credit cost to defend Patreus systems through our good work.

    PMF BGS:

    • We promote the Praetorian Curiate Assembly of SPOCS 900.
    • We conquer systems, seize assets, and plan expansions.
    • We participate in a shared story and encourage roleplay.

    While we are focused on setting and achieving goals, we have no activity requirements and encourage all of our members to play at their own pace, whatever that may mean! PCA will give you direction and knowledge, but your time is yours.

    Interested CMDRs should contact Misaniovent, either via this thread, inara, reddit, or discord (add Misaniovent#2576). Please be prepared for a brief interview.

    The Praetorian Curiate Assembly is pleased to announce its total control of SPOCS 900, the culmination of a months-long campaign that saw the Assembly concurrently seize nine stations in three other systems. Investors and independent commanders are invited to examine Duke Alden Rowe's holdings.

    We mark major state changes during our campaigns with news article. SPOCS 900 was originally a Federal democracy; we've spent many hours imagining what might happen when such a system becomes a feudal state. Out of necessity and exploration, we wrote this campaign as an independence movement, challenging the strength of our new government as PCA expanded and fought in other systems. How might a new nobility be created out of a democracy? What might happen these nobles question their oaths?

    If you'd like to read our interpretation of the mechanics we used to achieve these objectives, please read our news archive for SPOCS 900!

    psst. Did we mention our ELW has rings and a HAZRES? It's true. In fact, every system we control has a HAZRES. Weird.

    One of the factions I curate is in 12 systems, and has one RES, 20kls away from any asset.

    I was actually wrong! Oops. Our two most recent systems don't. Our HQ has multiple, including one around our ELW. Another has a HAZ res that doesn't actually have asteroids, which is interesting.

    We recently completed our campaign in Nyoru. With Nyoru in PCA control, we now own 19 stations stations in 5 systems — we are aiming for depth rather than a high system count. You can read our Nyoru Archive here.

    We now control 21 stations across six systems, including our very first industrial-economy asset! A small outpost in HR 7766 named "Clair City."

    Economy Type Count
    Agriculture 1
    Colony 4
    Extraction 5
    Extraction/Refinery 2
    High Tech/Refinery 4
    Industrial 1
    Military 4

    We feel it is about time we start building an industrial base to match our extraction and refinery capacity. Fortunately, HR 7766 has four more industrial stations just waiting for Duke Alden Rowe.

    Not a Imperial Commander but I like to see people play the darn game instead of moaning all the time so I guess I’ll throw out a “Congratulations.”

    That's appreciated. We were solely focused on powerplay-BGS for a long time and are now enjoying building our PMF in addition to supporting Patreus. We've flipped hundreds of a systems, so trying to build a faction based on a diversified economy as well as population and asset density has been a nice change of pace.

    In recent weeks we've continued to accrue assets in HR 7766, completing our conquest of the Workers of HR 7766 Independents:

    PCA takes Gregory Beacon

    The Praetorian Curiate Assembly has declared sovereignty over Gregory Beacon, ousting the Workers of HR 7766 Independents from their final port. Yet fighting continues, with conflict zones present throughout the system as PCA infantry spread throughout the heavily-populated colony in an effort to root out remaining resistance.

    Expectations that mercenaries would rescue President Helena Elin's independent democratic movement by retaking Clair City appeared unfounded, with few PCA pilots reporting sightings of the unmarked Core Dynamics vessels seen last week.

    Speaking from MacGregor Enterprise, Baronet Wreyn Kaira commented that "Workers were equipped primarily with new Lakon vessels. However, through our intelligence-sharing with Gold Comms we continue to believe that these mercenaries and the assassins that took Curia Jodoc from us are connected to President Elin and her dishonorable movement. We will continue pursuing this plot against us."

    Responding to reporters on Tarski Gateway, Workers Envoy Brittany Chandler was quoted as saying "leave me the hell alone."
    Yet the future is in question, as Senator Torval faces repeated turmoil and struggles to hold control of nearby Regira.

    Region turmoils as PCA pushes forward

    The future of the Praetorian Curiate Assembly was called into question today as news of instability in Senator Zemina Torval's holdings rocked local markets and governments. The Assembly, which has been actively accruing assets in HR 7766 since late August, quietly expanded into Yalura last week, in a move that had been expected to tie Duke Alden Rowe even more closely to Senator Torval.

    However, despite PCA offices continuing to open throughout the system, faction representatives have yet to make any official announcements regarding their aspirations in the system. With Duke Rowe's government reeling from the death of Curia Erwan Jodoc, former leader of the HR 7766 United Bureau, trust in the Assembly and support for their growth in Yalura is unclear, with the Empire's future in HR 7766 also uncertain. Executives from HR 7766 Purple Major Limited have so far kept mum, but with Torval ousted, a Federation ascendancy in the system may be in the cards.

    Nine Nayan News anchorwoman Olivia Abott will interview Praetorian Curiate Assembly Marshall Baronet Wreyn Kaira this evening, to be broadcast throughout the sector tomorrow.
    You can find that interview here. It is a busy time for the Praetorian Curiate Assembly, and we are handling our objectives with aplomb. Are you interested in planning and executing complex objectives and world-building? Then we might be the right group for you!
