“To be the light from which darkness recedes.”
- Týr Larsson, Founder in 2655


Uniting under one banner to pursue liberty and knowledge, free the oppressed and preserve peaceful relations



Larsson Group
[LG] sets new precedents in diplomacy and economic values through advancements in technology, thereby furthering the expansion of the UEE. By acting as an inter-stellar web, LG has successfully connected multiple civilizations together in culture and commerce. These groups often span across distant systems with vastly varying economic and political environments, yet LG strives to safeguard each faction’s individual interests while maintaining mutual benefit. By these actions, the Larsson Group sets out to unite our ‘verse to form a more culturally rich and stable society and denounces racial differences in favor of a stronger galaxy for all.

    Larsson Group: Activities





    Larsson Group was founded with the intention to fight the undemocratic messer era and to support freedom and democracy within the UEE and also to support good relations towards friendly neighbours (alien races). While during the fascist era of the UEE, it was denounced to be a terroristic organization, threatened with deadly punishments, later on the organization received full pardon for the activities in the past.

    Larsson Group collected large amounts of data from the messer regime through intelligence and infiltration activities. It was also heavily involved in freeing political prisoners, leaking information on the messer family doings, and several attempts to attack and kill members of the dictator family, aswell as a lot of sabotage within the dictatorship and its activities.

    After the victory over the fascist era, Larsson Group sticked to the information collection for a long time until the end of the last century, when the actual patriarch, Leif Erik Jørgensen decided to add the economic competence and expert knowledge of the Horizon Trade and Finance Corp. to the portfolio of Larsson Group, which caused Larsson Group to now have a wide range of activities from military to exploration and business, which certainly excludes piracy but might include smuggling, as long as it caters the intentions of the org (freeing oppressed, blockade running, etc.) but that definitely excludes slavery, slave transports and drug smuggling.

    Larsson Group: History Pt. 1





    Oct.1st 2638 28-year-old Týr Larsson, an Advocacy agent stationed on Terra, was replaced by Messer-friendly personnel after his attempt to track back the damaging propaganda against the governor of Terra, Assan Kieren. He was threatened to never reveal the true origin of the lies and deceit targeting Kieren nor the reason for his disappearance. Týr, seeing this coming, copied large amounts of Advocacy archives to shadow locations he controlled, thus making sure their transfer to non-UEE recipients and the mass media in the event of his sudden disappearance.

    Dec. 3rd 2638 Shortly after fetching their son from school, his wife Janne Larsson was shot and killed by a sniper attack of unknown origin. Their son survived.

    Dec. 4th 2638 Týr Larsson received a message threatening him and and his 6-year-old son with torture and slow painful deaths. In desperation Týr made use of his Advocacy knowledge to vanish into lawless space. Finding that this was not a suitable environment for his son and knowing that Xi’an terrorism was pure propaganda, he began wondering if the Xi’an truly were interested in a future alongside humans.

    ScoxfsP.png

    During the following months and after lengthy deliberation to identify the correct diplomatic approach, Týr made reasonable contact and eventually was given the opportunity to settle in Xi’an territories. Due to a Xi’an security agreement those locations are kept secret to this day.

    During the next decade he made use of his knowledge, handing over important documents to the Xi’an as a goodwill gesture. He also blackmailed quite a few politicians, Advocacy personnel and other figures of importance for ridiculously large sums of money. In May 2655 this led to the foundation of a very substantial ‘Information Agency’ with an inconspicuous name, Larsson Group.

    4xOCI6k.png


    The now well known opening quote from the foundation ceremony was:
    “If the dogs start attacking the sheep, it is time to replace the shepherd.
    You will find a wolf under his coat.”


    From that time on Larsson Group built a wide spanning information network within the UEE comprised mostly of contracted spies and a growing number of field agents led by trusted persons within UEE territories.

    In 2677 Kristian Larsson took over the Chancellor seat from his father with a new agenda ending the rather silent era of pinpricks against the fascist regime and pushing more of the gathered information about the Messer Empire into the public eye.

    2695 Týr Larsson withdraws as Patriarch and his son Kristian, aged 63, already running the Larsson Group as Chancellor, takes the chair from his father.

    2712 Kristian and a team of field spies are killed by Empire elite soldiers during an attempt to free 76 political prisoners on Earth. Kristian’s team was wiped out during the ground assault, and he and the ships crew were killed trying to provide air support. The once former and now again Patriarch Týr Larsson announces the daughter of Kristian, Randi Larsson as the new Chancellor. Being the first family member born and raised in Xi’an territories she preferred being a silent fighter to making noise with words and gave the Larsson Group a more radical and aggressive touch. She was later referred to as, ‘Valkyrie’.

    2716 Following and expanding upon her father’s ideals the founder’s granddaughter spearheads the first dedicated team of field agents specially trained in martial arts and guerilla warfare for intelligence and diplomacy operations. She also introduces a detachment of fighter craft to the organization.

    2744 Randi Larsson was seriously injured and disfigured during an operation in an attack on the Emperor’s family. She refused cosmetic surgery to restore her face and remained heavily scarred.

    In 2745 Týr Larsson dies at the age of 135. His granddaughter withdraws from the Chancellor’s seat and becomes the first “Matriarch”, while her first born, Stein Larsson, takes over the seat at the same age his mother had in 2712.

    Stein Larssons era was rather quiet and focussed heavily on intelligence and diplomacy endeavours. Within his epoch the Larsson Group had one of its biggest successes, the collaborative preparation and coverage of the 2789 Kray/Akari treaty.

    IKXLgpP.png

    As protection and support for Senator Akari, large amounts of hoarded Messer family secrets and degrading acts of terror were revealed from the Larsson archives and published through various channels. This action was spread out over several years and zenithed with the big reveal of ‘The massacre of Garron II’ in 2792, finally culminating in the government’s overthrow.

    Larsson Group: History Pt. 2





    BTVJ61r.png

    2800 Stein Larsson and his mother, Randi, were invited to the opening of the Ark and granted citizenship by Imperator Marshall Leon. They were extended pardons for ‘terroristic’ attacks during the Messer-Era under the condition that they would abandon the name Larsson. Randi refused and went back home into Xi’an territories, while Stein took the name of his father, Jørgensen and the opportunity to settle on earth and influence politics in this new promising era from within the UEE; thereafter, every new member of the family would be born as a Larsson and later given the chance to choose between the surnames. Thus there was no fight within the family over the change of name. With Randi Larsson’s refusal the decision for splitting the organization into the lawful neutral Larsson Group based within the UEE and the Larsson Syndicate within the Xi’an territories was made. Rules were set to secure the influence of the Larsson family over the two parts by the Patriarch and his offsprings residing in different areas. The Patriarch will preferably reside within Xi’an territory. The sons and daughters of the family, automatically being the chancellor of the Larsson Group, shall mainly reside within UEE territories. Family meetings would only happen in secret places usually within Xi’an space and never consist of more than 2/3rd of the family’s members. Even though the Messer Era just ended with massive support for Larsson activities, the family council decided that it is better to have the haystacks tied down instead of fearing the wind.

    vpnRYlk.png

    2805 Dedication of the new Earth Headquarters of Larsson Group. After a year long debate concerning whether the new Larsson Group HQ should be located on Earth or Terra, Stein decided against Terra stating that it should be located where it would be needed most. Directly after the dedication ceremonies for the new headquarters, he resigned as Chancellor and handed the staff over to his eldest son, Jason, aged 35.

    Larsson Group headquarters were planned by the Tevarin architect, Rheeza’Ktek. Its tri-spherical concept symbolizes the seeds of the “Khan’Ja”, fireflower, from Kaleeth. The very rare flower was a relic of primordial Kaleeth. They only grew near volcanoes and flowered once every 7 years. Every flower had three seeds with a shiny mineral hull resembling precious ornamental pearls. Contact with lava opened the mineral hulls, allowed the seeds to sprout and left the seedlings with nutrients. Those same seeds served as gifts of peace and friendship from one Tevarin tribe to another since ancient times. Later on they were ritual gifts for leaders and warlords.
    Of course the flower did not survive terraforming after the UEE occupation of Kaleeth.


    2812 Randi “Valkyrie” Larsson died at the age of 144, a century after taking over Larsson Group. Stein becomes Patriarch but dies within the same year suffering an unknown disease.

    2813-2865 Current Chancellor and now also Patriarch, Jason Jørgensen, rules the Larsson Group focusing even more on the collection of secret material from politicians. This especially includes the descendants from the Messer Era regime in order to control them if necessary and eventually rid them from politics altogether.

    In 2865 Jason died a mysterious death in an organization vessel, which was later found to have malfunctioned attempting to land at a Moscow spaceport. Being without offspring, a brother 20 years his junior, Fredrik, took over but continued the policy of information collection.

    2885 Exactly 20 years after Jason’s death Fredrik resigned as Chancellor, and his son Leif Erik, aged 28 took over. He seemed to be a mixture of personalities, of founder, Týr, a very eloquent diplomat and of Týr’s granddaughter, Randi, a fierce fighter.

    In 2925 Patriarch Fredrik died leaving Leif Erik as Chancellor and Patriarch.
    Leif Erik Jørgensen aimed to force steady growth into the group.
    He was seeking to increase profit, size and power of the Larsson group, but he lacked the competence in business management.


    Finally in 2929 he saw his chance to buy the well-known Horizon Trade and Finance Corp., an almost bankrupt company at the time. Later showing competence and a thirst for economics, he abolished the directorate and integrated the remaining structure into Larsson Group.

    During 2935 after a successful integration process of companies, Leif Erik retreated from being Chancellor, and his only son, Lars F. Jørgensen, took control of the Chancellor’s seat.

    2940 With help and support from his father, Lars F. changed the directorate of Larsson Group to a more progressive approach to increase competence and participation.

    Larsson Group: Charter Pt. 1





    nqher9n.png


    Our Community



    The core values, we are aiming for:

    Fun, friendship and trust
    Freedom and flexibility
    Transparency
    Equality
    Quality over quantity
    Diversity


    Because we focus so much on the people within the organization, we need to make sure you fit in. For both our and your sake. You should really share our vision. This is also the main reason why we think rapid growth should be avoided at any cost. We are not here to become the next biggest org. Nor are we here to self loath towards the community and show how active and "professional" we are. There are tons of those organizations already, and sooner or later they will run into drama. We are here to provide the best possible experience for our members and mainly to have a good time and become close friends. If you want a big organization with a lot of exposure... go ahead and join one. But we guarantee you that the experience will not nearly be as good as playing with friends you know and trust. We are aiming for a max size of 150 members (we might make exceptions for good rl friends of already existing members but we did not even reach that count yet so we do not need to worry), which we find already quite large for the goals we want to achieve.

    A larger diversity of members will create a more dynamic and fun experience.

    Let's not forget this is not a job! In the end we are all here to have fun. Nobody should ever feel obligated to create stuff. Whether it is organizational, lore or media related stuff. We are firm believers that respect for each and every member (whether they are on every day or once a week) will yield the best results.

    Also, if you contribute something for the org, like documents or media, it will stay in the group, even after you leave. You agree to that with joining us. New members get a gracetime period of three months starting from the joining date, after that we consider that you learned enough about us to feel comfortable or to leave and afterwards this contribution rule will apply. We decided to add this because we want to avoid fruitless fights over intellectual property and how he and she also added a word to this and that and so when someone leaves the whole organisation suffers because everything has to be changed around. If you want to contribute, you are doing this voluntarily, most of the stuff is customized anyways so it would not be easily reusable. We will give you full credits to your artwork, stating the origin and the creator.

    We will not make rigid structures and rules until the game comes out. At least half of what gets created will have to be changed anyway because we don't really know anything yet when you think about it. Sure, we should definitely think and talk about it, but there is no reason to put people into specific roles and levels of power right now (and maybe not even when the game is out).

    We should never see people that don't create or "do" anything as less. People that provide fun and a good talk (about anything) are at least (!) as important as those who create documents or lore or other stuff. After all, having fun and mutual trust for one another is what determines the strength and quality of a group.

    At the end of the day we are all just a few geeks that share a passion for the BDSSE. Let's make it about that! And not about tedious chores and responsibilities. Then the rest will come naturally. We need to think long term here. After all, the game is not even out by any means and is supposed to continue for at least ten years. We'd like us to stick together until then :-)

    Your ships, leadership skills, flying experience are not important to us, we already have a big organization hangar that will allow you to fly a large variety of ships, all you need is a friendly personality, be grounded and willing to integrate into our community. We have no age restrictions but we require a certain amount of maturity. We have zero tolerance towards drama, racism, sexism or discrimination. If your ego is affected by leadership roles, large numbers and hailing paesants, please look somewhere else.

    Larsson Group: Charter Pt. 2





    nqher9n.png


    Structure/Leadership



    Our organizational structure lore-wise and only lore-wise would be a ‘family’ run organization with the patriarch as its head, controlling the syndicate and the group, whereas in the group an additional council board underneath the patriarch runs the operational business within the given directions of the patriarch.

    The actual real-life approach is somewhat different. For now we have a charter committee, senior members who help keeping the organization on track and safeguarding its intentions, goals and core values.

    Later on we will aim for a somewhat flexible structure that allows us to form multipurpose squads where you can for example be a trader today, fly as an escort tomorrow and as an explorer next week for example. This will also cater the interests of close groups of friends for example.

    As a parallel part there will also be teams of dedicated members who are solely into military stuff, exploration, intelligence and infiltration, trading and hauling (business) and so on. Those teams will be able to organize organization wide (story-)missions and ask for participation/interest by the multiurpose orientated guys, so if you’re not dedicated to one or two activities, you will be able to voluntarily join the offered missions by the dedicated teams.

    We try to ensure the widest possible range of freedom for our members activities in the verse. Also this will enable you to get sneak peeks into the different parts and genres in case you want to check out if you are into a more specific activity.

    We will figure out the specific, detailed and best working operational leadership structure for us with you, our members, when we have something reasonable to decide on. At the given point of development, it makes no sense to present something serious as a given that will work in the persistent universe.

    The operational leadership will be determined by you, our members through suggestions and voting.

    The operational daily business will not be influenced by any charter member as long as it is respecting the given core values, boundaries and directions given by our charter and the history of the lore.

    The Charter Committee will only be there to ensure that the org does not steer the wrong way.

    As an example, supporting slavery, supporting racist, fascist (Messer) and xenophobic approaches will not be tolerated, oppressing our members, forcing members into activities, censoring opinions will also be punished by the Charter Committee. You can see it probably as the parents of the family ensuring the reliability, consistency and continuancy. Not just for our members so if they are away for 3 weeks they do not find a complete new organisation like it is with some of the fancy, hyperactive other orgs but also for our ingame activities, our friendly organizations and allies.

    In the persistent universe every charter member will be integrated into the operational structures at that time, we will just be normal members, following advice of our squad leaders or the advice of the dedicated teams, since we also want to have fun and participate and not just make our minds up about it.

    I just read through your full in-fiction history on your Org page and was very impressed! :)

    Just thought I would drop by here personally and pay my compliments. Very well done lore and organizational goals!

    Not sure if you are familiar with my group, Valinor Aerospace, but I will be very happy to open diplomatic talks between our organizations if you are interested. I really enjoy making friends with like-minded communities!

    Dear Lórien, dear members of Valinor, kind regards from Larsson Group.

    I was reading your thread (only until page 33 sorry), homepage and watching your videos. An awesome collection of brilliant work! From your history and intentions, it seems, we are very much on the same page (even though, Larsson Group is only about 3 centuries). I really appreciate that. Overall I rarely see organizations making good use of the given opportunities within the SC Lore. We certainly enjoy working with the lore and enriching it further to give ourselves even more reasons to play this awesome game.

    It will be our pleasure to get in contact with you.

    Hello!
    Your group sounds quite nice and you have a pretty detailed history. No roleplay tag, however, in your organization in RSI.

    I assume this is because you do not enforce it, right?

    In the org testing I complained about not having a role play optional button neither a casual to hardcore option and suggested that as a game feature for the org tool. Hopefully we get that soon enough since imo this is really an issue. Thanks for your visit @Volkmar77 and check back as there is more to come story wise.

    Hey there again Larsson Group!

    Just a friendly visit/bump - also wanted to let you know that Volkmar77 there is our newly-appointed head diplomat. :D He will probably assign a dedicated ambassador to your group from us at some point so we can more easily stay in touch.

    Hello again friends!
    Valinor is interested in establishing diplomatic relations with you.
    We have yet to name an ambassador to you, but you can expect Soon (TM) to have someone from Valinor, maybe me, come knocking at your door.

    On unrelated note, your group has a clear Scandinavian name, is this just a coincidence? do you come from there and/or is your membership primarily from there?

    Thanks.

    Just stopping by to hello all and that I have enjoyed reading your company's description.

    I look forward to coming across Larsson employees "out there" and though I am currently under contract with another corporation maybe there will be opportunities in the future to pick up some jobs on a sub-contract basis. :)

    Interesting organization. I like the direction you're taking it. It's the kind of thing I was hoping to find in SC.
    Whether the game will allow for this kind of organization to grow and achieve its goals, we'll have to see, but it's great to see the will and initiative behind it.
