Enna Miq pondered over the request of Fånajusi for a few seconds, then answered. "Well, our goal would be to drive the invaders out of Graid territory and confine them within their own systems. If they retaliated or if we found them guilty of war crimes such as genocide, we would bring down our entire armada upon them."

Lets see...

Genocide? *check*
Questionable scientific experiments? *check*
Species wide slavery? *check check check*

I will be glad to start the OCC first so we may confirm who is participating in this war cause its going to be BLOODY

Oh, I'm sure that the GPA as well as many other civilizations in the galaxy would attack the Core Combine after hearing of their war crimes.

Post by: SimplyNecro on January 03, 2010, 06:29:34 pm
Luckily the Core Combine is well prepared for this war, of course there not going to outright win but their going to give the galaxy hell and even after the war they will probably still be a problem though definitely nothing like now.
Title: Re: The Galactic Protection Agency [ooc]
Post by: UFO King on January 03, 2010, 06:34:49 pm
Dude, it's the entire civilized galaxy against a small pocket of aliens. It will take six months, tops. Of course, the galactic forces will probably have heavy losses, maybe in the hundreds of thousands, but their superior technology and vastly larger armies will eventually crush the Core Combine, but in a very spectacular fashion. This is going to be a fun RP.
Title: Re: The Galactic Protection Agency [ooc]
Post by: SimplyNecro on January 03, 2010, 06:44:53 pm
True as that might be they will still be a problem and yes it will be spectacular

Oh and UFO King if you don't mind I need a quick physics check, I always imagined a Core Combine rail gun on say... a battleship using something similar to Mass accelerators like in Mass Effect not exact but similar, it would basically allow Core Combine rail guns to be smaller thus more maneuverable and still fire with the same impact force than say one of the Perrachi's super large battleship rail guns. Is that somehow possible?http://masseffect.wikia.com/wiki/Mass_accelerator#Mass_Accelerators (http://masseffect.wikia.com/wiki/Mass_accelerator#Mass_Accelerators)

This is probably the wrong topic for this but.... eh

[[EDIT]]- I would not consider the Core Combine some "small pocket of aliens" its safe to say they very active during the inactivity of the galaxy but again your right its the entire galaxy vs one force but the Communicants managed to do it http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=10414.0 (http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=10414.0) (though they had a few allies as well, again I don't want to start a fight or argument) oh and the Ai'earthyr managed to give the galaxy a panic attack... though that was something a bit bigger than the Combine.
Title: Re: The Galactic Protection Agency [ooc]
Post by: Raz on January 03, 2010, 06:56:41 pm
The Communicants had billions upon billions of ruthless soldiers who never surrendered, physically couldn't surrender, as well as incredibly advanced technology.
Title: Re: The Galactic Protection Agency [ooc]
Post by: SimplyNecro on January 03, 2010, 06:59:19 pm
Ok ok I know when I'm beat

[[Edit]]- Wait a tic... the Combine actually has the large amount of ruthless soldiers incapable of surrender thing, though yea they lack the super tech.
Title: Re: The Galactic Protection Agency [ooc]
Post by: Raz on January 03, 2010, 07:08:48 pm
"Large" in terms of a small empire is nothing compared to the Communicants. Take an entire galaxy's worth of soldiers, and then you've got an approximation of just how many soldiers the Communicants had. Waging an ambush Galactic War is quite the accomplishment.
Title: Re: The Galactic Protection Agency [ooc]
Post by: UFO King on January 03, 2010, 07:38:22 pm
Actually, a Perrachi railgun utilizes the same concept, as do all railguns. Considering that a Perrachi railgun would fire a nuclear bomb several times more powerful than any human-built one on a planet from far up in space, the impact would be so devastating that it would probably be visible from space.
Title: Re: The Galactic Protection Agency [ooc]
Post by: Crazen on January 04, 2010, 03:48:46 pm
ok, we all agree, the core combine will most certainly defeated/contained (as all villians must), but they will put up a good fight.

it will be quick, nasty, and destructive. lets get to it! hell, i'm ready, and I hardly have a role

Post by: UFO King on January 04, 2010, 04:38:35 pm
Oh, now I get it. Like the Treaty of Versailles, right?
Title: Re: The Galactic Protection Agency [ooc]
Post by: SimplyNecro on January 04, 2010, 06:21:20 pm
I'd say thats a good comparison, it would be a little different (mainly cause its a treaty between alien nations but the concepts still the same)

I can already think of a few good points such as-

- The Core Combine is to admit full responsibility for the war, pay for damage etc
- All soldiers and civilians of (Place name of collective alliance against the Core Combine here) that where "Skrallified" during the war are to be returned immediately to their respective countries and families for rehabilitation, their non vital bionics are also to be deactivated.

There are tons of more things Perrachi/GPA/Graid can think of, but just like the Versailles it should be VERY controversial for example the Core Combine would find it very hard to pay for reparations because by galatic standards its dead broke because they do not use currency and I could bet the "return all soldiers/civilians" thing will probably never be fulfilled completely, demilitarization will also be difficult because the entire Core Combine can be considered one large military force since everything they build and produce goes either to the military or industry which helps keep the military going.

[[EDIT]]- Admitably my knowledge of history is a little bit lacking, I actually had to look up the treaty of Versailles, and I only skimmed through it
Title: Re: The Galactic Protection Agency [ooc]

The PSR doesn't need too much money, considering that it's largely self-sustaining and doesn't use currency inside of its government.

But let's not not jump to conclusions here! We're planning way too far ahead, I think. Let's make the topic already!

(http://i546.photobucket.com/albums/hh412/GalacticWeirdo/GPApendingmembers.png)

Left: Sarelka Karlan Talsenreave

One of the primary scientists on the Talsenreave Station Project. His name is misleading, Karlan is actually his last name, Talsenreave is the college at which he resides (In Ni'Calls society, one takes on a personal name, a family name, and a residence, or place of education, name.) He's one of the extremely rare albino type of Ni'Calls, meaning he's a silvery-pearl white with a bright green pupil. He was born without a spinal brace, so he need an artificial brace, which he has in the picture.

Right: Dashira Kharajev

Partner of Zkharen Kharajev, a Bino Diplomat who once ran for chancellor of the USSS. Tall for a Bino, she has often been characterized as "imposing" by many, but is really kind at heart. She's a skilled tactician as well as diplomat, learning much about peace from Zkharen. She wears a clothing style similar to a minimalist version of preist's robes, a nod toward her heritage, her mother's side were priests at the Khato Athoka Temple. Needles to say, people know who she is. She's colored a darker blue hue than normal for Bino, and has brighter spots in a uniqe patern somewhere between male and female, squarish spots arranged in stripe-like lines.
Title: Re: The Galactic Protection Agency [ooc]

Would any members of the GPA object to the signal from the breludo reaching the headquarters?
Title: Re: The Galactic Protection Agency [ooc]
Post by: Yuu on March 03, 2010, 11:20:58 pm
It could technically reach the HQ, if the Breludo were somehow located in the Local Sector. However, the chances of that being is rather unlikely, since the area is pretty much explored territory, with star systems all mapped up and such.

Unless, of course, if the Breludo have already been in contact with the area's other inhabitants for quite some time now.

If not, try making the signal reach one of the GPA outposts that are proximal to the Breludo. :)

I hate to be a bother, but did you see the post I made in the RP?

Oh, yes. Very sorry about that. Totally missed my mind.

I'll have a post up in a while.

Title: Re: The Galactic Protection Agency [ooc]
Post by: Yuu on March 15, 2010, 10:33:27 pm
Aside from the Orealyianis homeworlds and the Kratairian ecumenopolis of Rolston, the last mega-structure would probably be the zero-point generators used during the Wexxian Exodus. Those things were massive, capable of producing enough energy to hurl entire fleets into nearby galaxies.

According to the "The Coup-The-CURRENT!-RP" RP, the Makal and the Slakos are gonna be curbstomped by the PSR.

So umm, once intel from this here agency, or from other clandestine sources, find out about this, how do you think the agency should react?

To put this into scale, this will be like the UN Defense Ministry finding out that the EU is going to invade the Balkans.

So, what are we gonna do?

Aw, goddammit. Did you really have to bring out the brainwashed anti-democratic aliens? This is going to plunge the galaxy into civil war, you know. The USSS and the GPA won't like this once the PSR presents the case of authoritarian oppression to them. You remember how I talked about the Perrachi "ridiculously complex legal system" years ago, right? I feel a case of World War followed by Cold War coming on...
Title: Re: The Galactic Protection Agency [ooc]
Post by: Plank of Wood on April 05, 2010, 12:40:55 pm
The "Holy" Austians very pro-democratic. As long as they're the only ones who can practice it.

And they're little more than a wandering paramilitary right now, considering how badly their asses were handed to them in the Liberation Wars when they got kicked off their homeworld. A very well funded Paramilitary, who despite being past their glory days still have the ability to hold their own in a galactic punch up, are still just a paramilitary.

Title: Re: The Galactic Protection Agency [ooc]
Post by: UFO King on April 05, 2010, 12:45:23 pm
Sure, but I doubt they can stop the PSR from coup-ing the Slakos and Makal governments. They just really, really hate authoritarian states. And also capitalism, but they can coexist with capitalist nations as long as they're also democratic. For now.

Really, really, sorry for double-post, but-

Are you kidding, Kitkat? Those so-called "headmasters" couldn't teach a kindergarten class. Not trying to flame here, but come on! Has he really never done any research on Perrachi history or their political system? I'll bet he's been living in a world where people only do things for self-benefit so long that he can't realize some people (i.e. most of the elected officials in the PSR) actually care for the living conditions of foreigners. The last thing anyone in the PSR wants is yet another imperialist war. They've already had thousands of those. Now please, act realistically.
Title: Re: The Galactic Protection Agency [ooc]
Post by: Kitkat on April 05, 2010, 05:38:49 pm
Well, you see, they think that military should be used for enforcing against hostilities, not for hostile takeovers. And I KNOW that it was in good intentions, but negotiating with atomic bombs isn't what they have defined as "Diplomacy". Plus, I imagine them as becoming slightly biased after Tuolfs' refusal to fund Talsenreave Station. Basically, they they're trying to avoid war, and are a little miffed at the circumstances.

And the "Headmasters" are called that because city states in Ni'Calls culture are really controlled/influenced by Universities and not strictly political houses. I call it a "Xerocracy" or rule of the educated.

At what does Perrachi history have to do with blasting foreigners to dust for no reason at all?
Title: Re: The Galactic Protection Agency [ooc]
Post by: UFO King on April 05, 2010, 08:45:38 pm
Who said anything about nukes? The Slakos and Makal aren't exactly as big a threat as the Core Combine. Also, almost all of their population is civilian. This makes strategy different: with oligarchical societies where power is concentrated in the hands of a few individuals, all you need to do is lop off the snake's head, so to speak, then establish a constitution and give power to the people in a civilian government.
Title: Re: The Galactic Protection Agency [ooc]
Post by: Kitkat on April 05, 2010, 08:50:39 pm
True, true. But what happens if you've opened a big can o' worms, like, say, what if the Makal can't star under control without a powerful, centralized government? Or what if they like having a king/don't really care if they get a say or not/are happy the way they are? The basige gist of the N'Calls' mobilization being that such a can-opening could create havoc.

This. This is basically how the Orealyianis view politics.

So, umm, yeah...


After seeing the current developments, it seems that this event will likely push the USSS, SPA, GPA, Beyon, Rolston, Libera Unio,`etc. into two ideological factions.

A Galactic Cold War.

Ah yes, the "Liberal Union", a huge and incredibly powerful group of now isolationist races who are completely self suficient and have withdraw from galactic politics completely. We have dismissed that claim.

I'm sure I'll get my "Real" Austians to intervene and headbutt everyone into seeing sense soon enough. Before curb stomping the entire Holy Austian fleet and disapearing seconds afterwads.

Why would the PSR's biggest allies suddenly turn against them? This isn't like after WWII, where simmering hatred hidden by a common foe emerged in the USA and the USSR when Germany and Japan were defeated. They've always liked each other. And what other socialist governments are there in the galaxy? The only place I see emblazoned with the red triangle (Perrachi equivalent of the red star) is the Perrachi Socialist Republic itself.

They're the type of people who don't know the definition of socialism. Remember, kids: There has never, ever been a socialist state in history! IngSoc wasn't socialist either! They were all totalitarian police states that only paid lip service to Marx! But at least they're an ally that the PSR can easily revolutionize into a socialist nation.

At the rate this is going, the PSR may actually withdraw from the GPA if they aren't able to topple the Makal and Slakos governments. Its leadership acts on a strong moral bias, so they don't understand why anyone would be defending a dictatorship and an apartheid society.

Oh, and the Eleisian Union has released a statement condemning the PSR's declarations of war. Of course it's knee-jerk, because their constitution forbids war or even a military and the whole country is full of pacifists. But they can't really do anything about it, since they live on the same planet as the PSR and, well, no military.

This isn't about good guys and bad guys, you fool. This is just about bad guys. Both sides are evil, (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/EvilVersusEvil) so whoever wins, we all lose. It's probably going to end in a huge bloody stalemate, kicking off a new era of galactic cold war. Run for your lives!

That's why "bad guy" was in quotes. And Billions?! What's the planetary population then, ten billion something? The. Food imports to Perrawiih must block out the sun!
Title: Re: The Galactic Protection Agency [ooc]
Post by: UFO King on May 20, 2010, 11:05:33 pm
Yes, the population is around ten billion and shrinking, and it hasn't occurred to you that maybe you can grow your own frickin' food on a planet with more life than Earth?! But yeah, the population is shrinking because of mass immigration to colonies. The population used to be around 14 billion. That's twice as many humans Earth is supporting now. Luckily, Perrachi are more conservative in their diet and also live more widespread than humans, who mostly live in urban areas. It's not like you can't walk five feet without bumping into someone. They fly, too, so transportation is considerably faster due to their ability to move in all directions with ease.

Seriously, Earth has places like Greenland and the Western Sahara. Perrawiih is bigger than Earth. Wait a minute... That's a perfect situation for a vacation home!

Sure, peacekeeping, that's a word for it I suppose.  I imagined something more along the lines of the Kratair showing up to the battle and just telling everyone to settle the hell down before the fleet needs to give them a time-out.
Title: Re: The Galactic Protection Agency [ooc]

I suppose the PSR has solved vertical agriculture problems by now. So the PSR is like a space age China?

Once again, you earn an Epic Attention Fail for not noticing that the person who said that was the secret leader of an opposition party, i.e. a political party not in control of the government. The Democratic Socialists are still by far the majority party. And how is egalitarianism not protagonist-like behavior? I mean, the Communists' might be on the whole "ends-justify-the-means" thing, but they aren't what you'd call the main characters.

Light-years away? I was pretty sure it was in orbit around Perrawiih. Let me check. And I knew that he was opposition, its just that when a member of your species declares he wants to take over the galaxy, it comes off as vilainous. Really, in a war there are no "good guys" or "bad guys" and who you see as which is subjective. No matter waht the Perrachi do I doubt you'll see them as vilains because of your own "fatherly instinct." Likewise, as a neytral observer I see the PSR as the bad guys here, but as I said YMMV. The fact that were having this debate to begin with is a testiment to your skills at RPing. So keep on keeping on. :)

So, anyone wanna say what's happening to the others' crew right now?


The ship, moving at full speed, fired the EMP cannon toward all of the opposition in its path. Rather than stopping and firing as would be sane of them, the fleet continued ahead (through, presently, the Photos fleet), the Big E ramming into every ship in its path, not to mention it and the other ships firing quick, precise blasts toward every open area they could...

... shields were invented for a reason.

Then again, the PSR was the one who was challenged, and eventually, got invaded.

That’s what in the RP means. The story takes precedence over the people. Technically the PSR instigated the attack when they invaded Makal, and fired on Photos ships, making them the first aggressor. Although, as far as international standards go, there probably going to be a few potshots taken at the big Purple marble, after which a peace treaty will be signed and maybe a North/South split up f the Makal ala Korea. Or it could jut devolved into a global hellstrom. I'm really just an audience member at this point. My creatures dont show up until the next arc. So take everything I say with a grain of salt.

You will be transported to the Battle for Perrawiih, just as the GPA is knocking at the gates. There is no way to get out of this.

The only thing that you can chose is the gift you will get.

You will either be a Perrachi Socialist Republican ship captain who fervently and undeniably supported the Slakos and Makal military effort, with the necessary knowledge and skills that would come with the position and a Perrachi body that will remain fit even in 500 years...

Or you will be a bog standard crew or pilot of any frontline coalition ship or fighter of your choice and gain access to the entire technical knowledge base of that race's government(s), a Galactic Standard IQ of 200 and perfect memory so that you don't forget anything that you know.

Which do you pick?  >:D



PS.

It's waaaay past due for another election.

Just let me tidy the thread up a bit, and we'll start the election.


PPS.

What's the status on the Galdeen and the Pentekonterus? What are their views on potentially joining the GPA?

I dont get what your talking about.

I'm asking you guys which option you would personally prefer if you were somehow forcefully thrown into the RG universe.  :)

It's more or less between...

A.) Quantum Leaping (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_Leap_(TV_series)) into an experienced officer with an extremely extended lifespan while still retaining said officer's experience. Sadly, unless you can escape arrest, the guys at the GPA would probably put you on trial because of loads of evidence which point out your support of the PSR's latest agenda. There's also the fact that the ship you're on is part of the PSR fleet that's assigned to defend Perrawiih, and we all know what happens to ships during a massive engagement.

B.) You can choose whichever GPA race you want to be, and gain every single peace of technical knowledge of that race. Unfortunately, you're basically filling the role of a random redshirt.


Long-lived but likely to get locked up/exiled/go in hiding/drawn into the ensuing civil war or a walking library that has to survive something akin to Operation Overlord.  :)



but...they already got those things! the animals on Earthsky have those things.

We humans, on the other hand, don't.  ;)

Well, Perrachi only live for 200 years now. Maybe you're running on a different planet's time.

There's also the fact that the ship you're on is part of the PSR fleet that's assigned to defend Perrawiih, and we all know what happens to ships during a massive engagement.
Actually, the GPA halted their invasion once the PSR collapsed, which was a few months in. There was a battle in the Nupis system, though the fighting near the actual planet of Perrawiih wasn't too intense. Besides, the reason they stopped was because everyone suddenly belonged to some sort of faction, every one of which refused to accept responsibility for the PSR's actions (which most of them viewed favorably in the first place anyway). The Interstellar Civil War lasted a full year and was arguably more significant, but that's chiefly among Perrachi and I doubt any of you want a primer on their biology, history and culture.

Talin's President of Zal now, and any GPA attempts to capture him would result in another war from the Perrachi, this time definitely a lot fiercer. (Territorial integrity and resentment, not Talin in particular of course.) Khadenin was killed en route to Extra by a Luzonian ship, and the various ministers and generals are divided among the Alliance. Any soldiers are basically freed of responsibility because of the civil war and PSR collapse, and some Perrachi nations I could name are actually very keen on good relations with the GPA.

But all this doesn't mean that the war wasn't thrilling or that the stakes weren't high or that the PSR didn't meet its demise at the Battle of Perrawiih. The stakes were just high for the threat of another war between members of the same species, and it was more of an open revolt in the skies (not the streets, naturally) that ousted the high command. In the brief duration of the invasion you could very well be captured and tried by GPA forces as a Perrachi captain, but providing you lived through it you'd probably be set free within a couple of months on account of having no higher-ups to blame anymore. Not that this wouldn't be soul-crushingly depressing, but hey! At least there's no foreign occupation.

Say, all of the USSS members were also GPA members. Did any of them take part in the invasion? It seems very out of character for them. I'm guessing the Slakos and Makal would keep quiet about how much they loved their new democratic governments on account of their space being used as vital supply lines for the invasion. The Goonals would either contribute just a few ships or stand by in indecision, the Bino government is kind of prone to infighting, and the Ni'Calls might just not care. I know they definitely have made an ally species within Perrachi space, though...

No, really, I meant that.

It acts as an incentive to pick that choice in much the same way that the other choice gives you increased thinking skills and an encyclopedic knowledge about any one race's technology.

I see.

Still, I'd say the two choices are still balanced, risk:benefit ratio-wise.

Personally, which would you choose, UFO?   :)

Was kinda wondering about that too, actually.

Anyone wanna clear this up?

Perrachi, because they're ek npakchich!
In all seriousness, I know more of the Perrachi than anybody else (obviously) and would thus be more familiar and comfortable with their culture. Besides, it's pretty cool that they can fly and have future tech, not to mention contact with dozens of other sapient species. Of course, the similar psychology helps. I wouldn't want to live among aliens that ramble on about *pretty space* or Juffo-Wup.

And of course I would know all the good escape routes...

I see.

You'd try and save as much of your people, yes?  :)



Personally, I'd choose being an Orealyianis and try my best to survive, since I'd probably be more likely to die if I was in a axecrazy Luzonian squadron and I'd probably not survive a civil war in a non-familiar culture. The others that I am familiar of aren't exactly great either, since I could get more knowledge as an Orealyianis while having to deal with less crazy compared to the Choro. Chivi, I really don't wanna be a bird-insect-slug in a jar. Or a blind mole. Or the spawn of Cthulhu and a watermelon. So, umm, yeah, Orealyianis it is for me.  :)

If survival is a big thing, I'd pick Ni'Calls. If you take care of their insides they last forever.

Co-op design efforts, something like that?

Really?

Ni'Calls it is then.  :)

Compared to an Orealyianis which is pretty short-lived, having an indefinitely long life will net me much more benefits in the long run.

He's a veteran of a lot of combat scenarios and seems to be one of those hard-to-kill guys even for Gradients' standards.

Chief of Security in a place that's bound to attract a lot of nasty intruders is simply perfect for him.

And since he's sticking around anyway, I think he wouldn't mind it much.   :)




Failing that, Neuropyzine is pretty expensive stuff.  :-\

OK, so I'm probably going to have former Nirbalu Treasurer Limik run for Director of Public Information.

Probably.

I mean, she would have done something during the timeskip, right?

I don't even know.

*Note: This is according to a plan that Yuu and I know about and BLAH BLAH BLAH long story short we've been working with a couple of friends in the background and we've talked this over, but I'm not even sure we're actually going to do this.

Oh, right.


Umm, in the interest of not cluttering things up, should we assume that Oct's guys already joined, and simply bring it up in a future conversation?

Or should I cut in on the election (which would be all kinds of awkward)?
