So, this is kind of like the Non-Aligned Movement (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-Aligned_Movement)?

Is this the same or similar to the alliance I PMed some people about making after the war?

If it is I am still in...
Title: Re: The Coalition (OOC)
Post by: Crazen on February 20, 2010, 09:14:08 pm
yep. decided I would start the initiative while the Idea was fresh.

A NATO-style military alliance, then?
Title: Re: The Coalition (OOC)
Post by: Crazen on February 20, 2010, 09:48:57 pm
just about. the races manage themselves independantly, exept during warfare or certain other exeptions.

it's centralized around several of the aggressive, newer races though: Iavolg, Core Combine, Reither (I think).
Title: Re: The Coalition (OOC)
Post by: Kitkat on February 21, 2010, 05:54:25 pm
Well, according to the cooperation pact passed by the Riether and the Core Combing, whoever the CC shoot, the Riether are there to stab in the back.

Almost, Got the station back up and running.
Title: Re: The Coalition (OOC)
Post by: Crazen on April 06, 2010, 09:57:56 pm
now I just wait for the CC to come home, only to find that someone has broken in, eaten out of their fridge, and shat on their bed.
Title: Re: The Coalition (OOC)
Post by: Kitkat on April 06, 2010, 10:00:36 pm
I suppose that it would be the Riether's duty to help the CC back on their feet then...
Title: Re: The Coalition (OOC)
Post by: SimplyNecro on April 06, 2010, 10:17:42 pm
The Core really does not need that much help, in the end only one world was lost (and then returned) and the amount of labor power lost is not as damaging as led to believe...

first generation slaves would usually only be found on the homeworld they where conquered on and a few nearby worlds. by the time bio-factories are up and running their producing and breeding slaves as fast as droids are manufactured. So basically the ratio of second to first generation is very great, the former much higher than the latter.

plus their rather unwilling to let anyone help them... (Pride, incredible will to go on, little bit distrust, things that like)

Going on...

Do we by any chance have a set meeting place/capital planet (who's real purpose would just be show of our combined military and manufacturing power)

Cause I was thinking that our first meeting should be to discuss the Cold war that seems to be coming up and what precautions we should take and preparation we should make.

(I think most of our species agree though that we should stay out of it... but perhaps circle around like vultures and keep an eye on it)



Title: Re: The Coalition (OOC)
Post by: Crazen on April 06, 2010, 10:36:59 pm
not really sure about a meeting place. Hnangha is off limits. I'm guessing so is Felron, but maybe in orbit over a CC fortress world.  
Moataia( prime general and speaker of the Iavolg) can be Agnasi's representative, being one of the few competent members of the species.
as for the cold war, the Iavolg will be exactly like vultures. I mean that literally.

Title: Re: The Coalition (OOC)
Post by: Crazen on April 08, 2010, 04:41:03 pm
I have this idea that the CC could come aboard Hnangha (aggressively), and meet the Iavolg face to face. maybe 'talk it out' (as violent dominating nations do)  and make some arrangements from there.
Title: Re: The Coalition (OOC)
Post by: SimplyNecro on April 08, 2010, 04:59:40 pm
By meet face to face do you mean blow up a hole and break in with boarding parties? Or just a "friendly chat" aboard a potential allies ship?
Title: Re: The Coalition (OOC)
Post by: Crazen on April 08, 2010, 08:52:31 pm
or whatever you decide. I dont really know the intricacies of how the CC decides which races to destroy/enslave, and which to befriend
Title: Re: The Coalition (OOC)
Post by: Crazen on April 10, 2010, 10:20:10 pm
uh, SN, are you bailing on this, or what?
Title: Re: The Coalition (OOC)
Post by: SimplyNecro on April 10, 2010, 10:21:55 pm
I have just been trying to decide weather to open fire and duke it out or try to negotiate...

the former ties in with the Core Combines vengeful...ness the latter may be easier...
Title: Re: The Coalition (OOC)
Post by: Crazen on April 10, 2010, 10:45:47 pm
well, your not destroying the Hnangha, of course.

just attacking the Iavolg wouldn't create any diplomatic problems though, seeing as their cyborg overlord really doesn't care, and considers everything on a statistical basis. in other words, he wont go to war with you just because you killed a few thousand soldiers.

so maybe do this:
blow up a hole and break in with boarding parties
then you realize, its a bunch of brainless salamanders. and then do this:
just a "friendly chat" aboard a potential allies ship
Title: Re: The Coalition (OOC)
Post by: Crazen on April 12, 2010, 08:20:46 pm
oh, I edited my post again. sending a message didnt make any sense: they dont have ship communication systems such as that.

Of course I will not destroy Hnangha, that requires your permission.

In the recent post I made it said I already boarded early in the battle, is that alright? (so we could speed this up a bit)

Short post I know, but I agree, I to want to pick up the pace and perhaps get to the first official "meeting".
Title: Re: The Coalition (OOC)
Post by: Crazen on April 17, 2010, 12:13:06 am
a word on use of Iavolg slaves. first, it is not neccesary to individualy enslave them. only a signal director needs be modifed by CC tech to obey their commands. then all Iavolg within a hundred miles will obey it's commands. should be especialy easy to enslave them, seeing how their already mindless.

the Iavlog will multiply to the 10nth power twice a day, unless they start dying, run out of food, or their reproduction is turned off ( a signal directors can do this).

of note, Moataia may once have had a different gender
Title: Re: The Coalition (OOC)

So are we nearly done?

I think we should get to the first meeting soon.

Title: Re: The Coalition (OOC)

alright. where should it be?
Title: Re: The Coalition (OOC)
Post by: SimplyNecro on April 17, 2010, 03:27:44 pm
I suppose a CC fortress world space station would suit our purposes.

Unless you or Kitkat, if the Riether are still in on the alliance, have another idea.

Can I  join? I would use the Photos, as in that they are checking up on the Core Combine, in a friendly manner. After all, they're no longer at war, right?
Title: Re: The Coalition (OOC)
Post by: Crazen on April 18, 2010, 12:27:17 pm
uh, this whole thing is currently unknown to the rest of the galaxy, so it would be strange if they just happened to stop by.

Not really, if you think about it. If they just had a war, they would probably stop by to ensure no counter attack is brewing,.

Just a thought Grox, it seems these guys are trying to go for an "Alliance of Evil" type thing. I not sure the Photos would be welcome.

alright, lets all three of us meet up for a more proper meeting?
Title: Re: The Coalition (OOC)
Post by: SimplyNecro on August 29, 2010, 08:07:02 am
So what should the topic be? The Galatic conflict is still going on but its mostly being overshadowed by the huge war against "Them". Unless we want to have a meeting about that?

Though after the war I do have a good RP idea to signal the Coalitions first collective invasion to a region of space, I would have to talk to Plank later and see if we can use Paradise Gulf.
Title: Re: The Coalition (OOC)
Post by: Crazen on August 29, 2010, 08:58:15 am
Agnasi wouldnt get involved in a large scale conflict or war like that. to much risk, not enough reward. he targets the weak.

but yea, invasion.  should probabably stick to something further away, as to not bring the GPA or other alliances and strong races to arms. there are plently of filler races to kill off, i'm shure, and we can get someone else involved.

the coalition thread will be used for meetings and such. I think i'll bring Moataia out of hiding.

Title: Re: The Coalition (OOC)
Post by: Crazen on September 20, 2010, 10:59:59 pm
so, Norvag or Machy seems to be the choice, because they came up more than once.



Machy: still technically a feudalistic society, though they have been united together for a long time.

 they would still be devided if not for one strong lordship who preached of a creator and master god (with 17 wings) who demanded that they cease fighting eachother, so they could reach the stars and fight someone else. it isn't clear if he planned this to form unity or was experimenting with some common hallucinogens of the time. either way, the belief was passed down from generation to generation and children are very loyal and trusting of their ancestors.



the grand story arc (which will probably take a while) will have the coalition spread its aggression, eventually becoming a stable and lasting threat, instead of going all in on one conflict in single thread.

as for the Agnasi/Iavol specifically, I have an outline worked out. their will be interesting developments, especially concerning the Larentili

Title: Re: The Coalition (OOC)

we should probably wait till after the war, thinking about it.

Title: Re: The Coalition (OOC)
Post by: Crazen on October 04, 2010, 10:36:34 pm
I thing we should refer to this as C.O.I.S. (Coalition of  independent systems), to avoid being called the same thing as other things called coalitions.

now I don't want to make Kit feel like a third wheel, so bear with me:

from a Roleplaying perspective, The CC and the Iavolg would have a closer association with eachother. they are similar "culturally" and share many of the same goals. in addition, the Iavolg and are a easily controllable tool, who lack the programing to threaten the CC

the Riether, on the other hand, are different. they have their own ambitions and a proper empire with controll of fleets and planets. and they desire conquest over assimilation/consumption.

I think this could be a interesting dynamic, actually. the likeminded Agnasi a submissive minion of the Skrall while the Riether are like a rival ally (the starscream of the alliance, so to speak). tension, disagreement, and mistrust: all part of a good evil Axis.
Title: Re: The Coalition (OOC)

The CC's Japan, the Reither's Germany and the Iavolg's Italy?
Title: Re: The Coalition (OOC)
Post by: SimplyNecro on October 05, 2010, 05:32:29 pm
We should start this up after the Nameless war, that way we don't have to mess with weird timelines and such.

As to what Crazen said, I think it's pretty much spot on.
Title: Re: The Coalition (OOC)
Post by: Crazen on November 22, 2010, 09:03:45 pm
made a proper first post in the IC thread.

still waiting for the war of the Estherabrak(my name for the nameless) to blow over. hoping for a special 'dungeon crawler' type rp aboard the Hnangha. should be tons of fun and a bit off the beaten path*. relatedly, I think the CC and especialy the Riether will be happy with Agnasi's new plot (think: hold the world hostage) but that will happen after this join military venture. so I can wait.

also I hope my species doesn't seem racist.

What's gonna happen first is the Iavolg, who have been quietly spreading for years now, are going to burst out from the ground on most habitable planets.
