Title: They Who Cannot Be Named: The Battle for Origin: OOC and Planning
Post by: Yuu on August 07, 2010, 09:52:01 pm
               "So, will there be an awesome Mega-RP against "Them"?"

                    -- Plank of Wood

               "Oh god, Yuu, make a huge story about the war XD"

                    -- Yannick



Yes.

That's right.

We're making this happen.

And we're bringing it to YOU!


Basically, the Nameless Empire, after one of their head honchos got his seat handed to him on a silver platter, decided to rally up and get themselves some payback.

Now, the Empire's very own quirky mini-boss squad is all geared up and clearly out for blood.

The blood of an entire galaxy, that is.

Our galaxy, to be exact.

It's set in either the middle to mid-end of the current conflicts, or some time after By Order of the Emperor.

Still...

How about we do it in the future? That way we can allude to the next batch of RPs while causing an "ooh how did that happen" effect. Sort of like One Year Later and 52.

Y'know, I've started thinking, should I bring back the Hell-An? They may come in handy the war.
Title: Re: They Who Cannot Be Named: The Battle for Origin: OOC and Planning
Post by: Kenotai on August 16, 2010, 08:01:03 am
Well, they have to still exist, since the first contact with them led to a devastating war with the Supara.  So it wouldn't be them coming back, it be just reviving them.  But yeah, you should.
Title: Re: They Who Cannot Be Named: The Battle for Origin: OOC and Planning
Post by: Galactic-Warrior on August 16, 2010, 08:31:24 am
Well actually, we never finished that in the first place. As far I as I know, the Hell-An probe was looking over the remains of a Milika ship in their system and the Supara and Milika ignored them and kept fighting each other.
Title: Re: They Who Cannot Be Named: The Battle for Origin: OOC and Planning
Post by: Kenotai on August 16, 2010, 08:35:54 am
I would have found the Hell-An probe eventually.  Regardless, the Milika-Supara war RP is finished for now, the Supara devastated Ju, were beat back, and the Supara commander who started it all was never caught.  Since you had disappeared when we were going to try to start it up again, we couldn't, since you were a part of it.  Of course I think Yuu had been gone too for a while.
Title: Re: They Who Cannot Be Named: The Battle for Origin: OOC and Planning
Post by: Galactic-Warrior on August 16, 2010, 08:56:34 am
Well, we can either re-do it or say they forgot them and they somehow expanded without anyone noticing. Right now, I want to bring them back as part of the Stellar Republic.

Don't forget the link.  Also, I think that origin refers to "Their" origin.  So I think it makes more sense to call the defense faction "Galaxy".  And if origin doesn't refer to what I said, then it still makes more sense to call it galaxy.

Wait, while we do have the armies and fleets of a entire galaxy, who knows how many ships "They" have in a standard galaxy invasion fleet. But they're out for blood according to Yuu, so they'll likely have many more ships. For all we know, they could have MILLIONS of starships.

If thats the case, we'll likely have to hold out for reinforcements from the Tri-Wexxian Empire. They likely have ships that can go toe-to-toe with their's.

Wait, with my race's wormhole drives, my race can quickly respond to any of "Their" attacks.

Absolutely.

Actually, I was counting on that.

Basically, despite the fact that a massive threat is apparently moving in on us, life still goes on as usual in the galaxy. (Most of us can feel it in our gut though)

I guess the best post to start off with is a "What your race is doing now post."

Bullseye.



As for the summit, I really suggest keeping the number of participants down.

Also, it would've been nice if we knew what the summit was about so we can figure out who would have to attend it.


In any case, the news of the invasion has already been handed out by the Wexxians ever since they returned, so most of the inactivity can be attributed to all the conflicts that have happened between the Wexxians' arrival and now, especially with that recent war between the GPA and PSR.


In any case, after you guys are done with your introductions and whatnot...


Ehehehe...

So... should the Lone Gazer arrive at the summit, or should representatives already be there. Also, do you think Nirbalu would be on the side of "Them," as opposed to Kabalu and Baluvar, which are on our side?
Title: Re: They Who Cannot Be Named: The Battle for Origin: OOC and Planning
Post by: Yuu on August 29, 2010, 12:48:00 am
I'm gonna wager they'd still want to side with us instead.

That is, unless supporting an extremely racist regime of genocidal psychopaths which actively encourages the eternal suffering of entire galaxies is their sorta thing.


As for the summit, I really don't have much knowledge regarding this summit to make a decision.

Where will it be held? When was this planned? Who are the parties involved?

I still need some specifics in order to make a decision about it.


Also, the Vara Orealyianis wouldn't be able to attend it. It is currently receiving repairs. The Orealyianis will send a different ship, so please edit that post to simply just contact Shudariadne instead. Thanks.  :)


In any case, terrorists, pirates and other rogue groups will probably be split between helping "Them" and siding with the rest of the galaxy.

They're still people after all, unlike those complete monsters. D:
Title: Re: They Who Cannot Be Named: The Battle for Origin: OOC and Planning
Post by: Gnoll on August 29, 2010, 06:59:00 am
Edited. But, yeah, it could go either way. They don't usually support any oppresive regimes besides their own, but they're also frikkin' cowards when facing a more advanced army. They don't even believe in aliens, and currently think that the Galdeen troops on the planet are demons of some sort. So... meeting up with "Them" could go very badly for Nirbalu.

Wow, didn't think I needed to specify it that way, I was just going for a generic meeting of various races. If you need a quick in into the RP I guess playing a diplomat there is a good idea. Didn't want to make so many details it made a lock out so I made it deliberately vague.

Does the fleet admiral sound familar to anybody :)

And I set the summit in the SPA, partly to get us all in the same place, partly because the Orelians (nickname) are the diplomatic giants of the galaxy and party because this is a Yuu Family Crossver. Once again my lack of knowledge of SPA naming conventions caused me to make the name up.

Syke! But back to the dip, you guys need escorts to the big galatic sock hop on Olosis? It's in SPA territory so expect some trippy digs.//

This radical dude above me will be like, totally jammin' with those terran-ixians guys, know what I mean?

For a few weeks now, I've been thinking about making a machine race that does extensive use of anti-matter and maybe nano technology and the reason they have such stuff is because of a war with their long dead creators and after their war. They basically locked away their weapons because they didn't need them aside from a few ships that were given patrol or escort duty to defend their mining operations from rogue members of their race. Oh, and since their creators had no interest exploring outside their home system, my race didn't have any interest either.

These guys can assist in the war against "Them" with their tech. And no, I'm not going to have them share their technology with my current races. I actually like my (forum) life right now.

No offense dude, but I don't think it would be right if you just randomly brought in a new race that has anti-matter tech right at the start, even though their backstory does give a somewhat solid explanation. It just seems a little off.

In case you couldn't tell, in that last post, the Ni'Calls representative was referencing the Alpha Wave Transportation that Talsenreave Station is built to use. The thing can theoretically transport anything it can irradiate, so a few little bombs would be cake, and only use a fraction of the full power output of the station.

Marauding mostera gutting innocents- Ivalog.
A virus corrupting the eldest of races- The infection?
An unprovoked invasion spiraling into the crippling of a once great nation- PSR invasion of the Makal
A political philosophy heralded by a madman sweeping entire races like a plague- All the commies and socialist guys cropping up?
Interdimensional demigods creating near apocalypses- Got nothing.
Genetic barbarians enslaving innocents and what may have been the horror of life itself: Core Combine! (Skrall)

I have not posted yet because I still have a single event left to write, before the chaos can begin (I’m a slow writer) and I’m a little bit fuzzy on WHEN this is taking place?

GAH...

Stupid internet, not letting me enter the site even though other SMF sites don't seem to have a problem.

I'll post as soon as I can.


In any case, yup, about five years in the future.


Also...

Meanwhile, in a laboratory underneath Nirulimuka...
It was dark, and besides the sparks flying, nothing could be seen. A maniacal cackling rang throughout the bunker, accompanied by the sound of welding.
"Just you wait, your highness," a mysterious voice said. "This 'Nameless Empire' won't know what hit it once my invention is complete. Muaha, WAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!"

Care to elaborate, Doc?

You could PM me if you'd like.

Title: Re: They Who Cannot Be Named: The Battle for Origin: OOC and Planning
Post by: Yuu on September 21, 2010, 05:29:25 am
Lush thought it's time to introduce the SABER Century [people like Opsomnis, basically], as both a prelude to the war against "THEM" and as a taste of the [retroactively set] Harvester of Light Trilogy.

As far as designs go, we considered it would be best to let each creator [yup, anyone with a budget big enough to maintain a sizable military can more than easily afford to have one, two, etc...] create their own personal designs of what theirs should be like.

But right now here's the gist of it...





The SABER Century


The SABER Century is a galactic peacekeeping and police force, first founded in 68 ACW. The original design of the idea would originate on FLRX, with an organization self-titled The Protectors of the Cosmos. Their ideas would eventually spread into a small think-tank, codenamed Project: HOST, in which a staggering amount of credits was invested in what would become the first model of the LORICA, a highly advanced combat suit likened to those used by TIER's TEC Troopers. In 67 ACW, a coalition of members of the project, which had gained funding from the Space Union presented the idea of a galactic paramilitary police force, in the wake of the Galatcic Conflict. It was here that hey demonstrated the effects of the LORICA where, Korio Walthuz Yardén would become Centurion-prime. It was then with the assistance of  the GPA and the advanced technology of the Orealyianis Monarchy [courtesy of good 'ol Starship Athanatsu's remains] that they created one of the greatest inventions of all: DEXTA. DEXTA is one of the greatest computers ever built locally in the galaxy. Likened to the Galactinet, every database that the GPA, SU, or any other member of the network had access to DEXTA could compile every law, battle strategy, or codex ever written in the civilized galaxy and process it within nanoseconds when at peak operating capacity [basically when only a handful are online]. DEXTA is directly linked to the Centurions' LORICA so that she can instantly transmit battle plans, strategic formations, debriefings, or even detailed law and order trials directly into the mind of the Centurion. DEXTA was primarily created by reverse engineering Terran-Ixian data storage plans, and adding in a variety of other naturally occurring neural systems. With DEXTA as the brain, the LORICA becomes the heart.

The LORICA are the primary weapons of the Centurions. Their strength is roughly equal to a capital dreadnought. Their price is so steep, that only one hundred were able to be produced for the initial fifty year trial of SABER Centurion activity. The LORICA’s primary combat ability comes from its unique control of energy, based on gravity technology developed in FLRX's native universe and the energy transferring designs of Calla. The suits are taped directly into the brain of the wearer and allows them to fire energy beams [basically Terran-Ixian beam projection], grab and manipulate items with the strength and dexterity of a high precision, heavy-duty tractor beam, fly at speeds of up to 0.4% the speed of light, as well as being able to open hyperspace gateways [basically Terran-Ixian hyperlinks]. The suits are also hooked into DEXTA and thus allows detailed criminal files, battle tactics, and information about other Centurions to instantly be downloaded into the user's brain. The AI, also linked to DEXTA has an intuitive lifesaving aspect, and in dire situations can put the user on “autopilot” to move him to safety, in the event that there is no escape, the user will be allowed to fall in battle, while the suit removes itself from the host, and flies off to bond to its wearer’s successor, taken from a list of SABER Centurion reserves compiled by DEXTA herself.


Institution

Praetoria

The headquarters of the SABER Century is Praetoria, a massive planet located in section B4, the most densely populated area of the galaxy. The planet is a massive generator, the energy derived from its core supplying the massive load of power that courses though the veins of all the Centurions. Based on the technology used on Calla, the planet is a giant battery, it’s internal circuitry being large rough to act as a city, arcs of light sprawling in the sky in a constant aura. It is here that the central processor, DEXTA is located, as well as the formal offices of the Centurion Command.

Deimos

While the Centurions act within the areas of their respective states, certain criminals who are too dangerous to roam free are locked within Deimos. For the many planets that refuse to ascribe the death penalty, Deimos is the solution. Deimos is a cold and barren planet, that only recently evolved complex animal life. Located in the barren sector of J1, at the edge of the galaxy, Deimos is a prison all its own. Whenever a criminal is found extremely dangerous, and to pose such a large amount of risk to be handled using normal means, they are sent to Deimos and dumped there. Tagged with a very, very pervasive tracking implant, they are left to their own devices on the seemingly dead world, with any attempts at escape being met with death from the planet's orbital defense system. Over the short time of its activity, the various criminals collected by the Centurions and other agencies have filled the area up, leaving it with massive tribal collections of the damned. Called by some as the Hell Planet, it is in a state of constant anarchy, as the wretches of society are left to prey upon themselves.

To prevent any innocents from being affected, all criminals are, through various means, inhibited from reproducing.

For criminals who, due to a variety of reasons, cannot be properly exiled to Deimos, individualized methods of confinement are developed for the convict in question.

The Havens

The Havens are a series of starships that roam throughout that galaxy and serve as halfway houses and mobile bases for the Centurions, There are currently seven active ships, one for each major population cluster of the galaxy. When inured, a centurion may return to the area for medical attention, while also using them as local bases of operation for when travel to Preatoria would be impractical. Each ship has the full power of a dreadnought of its class, as well as that of any members currently on it.  The Havens also act as a mobile embassy, acting as the representatives of the local centurions to the various governments.


Order and Structure

Numbers

The Centurions currently have a membership of 100, serving a combined area of 5,000 inhabited star systems.  Each member is assigned to guard an area of space known as a Sector and each group of 14 Sectors has a Haven, an general office of contact with local governments.

Leadership

The leadership and general bureaucracy rests in the nads of the ultimate AI known as DEXTA. Due to her connections, she is as omnipotent as a system can be legally and also maintains the list of reserves and recruits to the Century. DEXTA appoints the combat leader of the Centurions, known as Centurion-Prime, and he in turn appoints six local leaders from the other population clusters to serve as the Centurion Council. An independent agency known as the Praetorian Oversight Committee acts as the legal aspect of the organization and manages the upkeep of the institution.

Funds

Aside from the money donated by the constituent governments to have a centurion for their sector, the general upkeep of the centurions is supplied by several SABER-owned businesses including one which sells of excess energy generation by Praetoria for profit. The salary is quite large for centurions as well, mostly because the life expectancy of a member is a little over four years [though this is primarily due to recent events altering the the averages].

Acquisition

When signing for a centurion, all the governments within the involved sector must round up enough money for the proposal, if DEXTA finds it prudent the process will be made and they will inducted the next year.


Symbology

The symbol of the SABER century is the galactic peace sign known as the Peace of Civilization. It is five pointed, yellow or gold star [similar to an asterisk], with a ring of the same color surrounding it, and the end spokes of the pentagram itself sticking out a bit. The edges between the lines are filled in with blue and the sigil is put into a blank circular field of white. This image is the only consistent imagery on the uniforms, as the composition for the suits varies form species to species and personal taste, but the gold, blue, and white color scheme remains constant.





Whew...

I think I just sprained my shoulder...  >_>

Also mind you: Thats the "light" armor. The heavier ones are even more fearsome looking and posses more weapon attachments. I'll probably make a proper file in the Core Combine thread with a better picture. This is just to help you envision it for now. *legs may be a bit bulkier.*

(http://c.imagehost.org/0940/Atomna_Awakened.png)

Who the hell do "They" think we are?!

Go! Verys! Go!

Kick 'im to the curb!




An Atomna, Awakened to its true form.

It possesses the same repertoire of Nameless programs as a common bonafide Atheim, albeit at a vastly smaller, human-like scale.

They're a far cry from the cosmic level of potential inherent in a true Nameless, but are nonetheless something to be reckoned with when encountered one on one.




Basically, what I'm getting at is that its as combat-capable as an elite Robotic Wexxian, a pair of Combine Wraiths, or a squad of SPA TEC Troopers.

So the Atomna has to face a hundreds strong battle fleet thats firing at it's weak spot AND a crazy Wexxian. THIS is going to be interesting.

Also, I'm going to guess Verys is somehow going to completely ignore the fusion and kinetic explosions thats hitting the Atomna.

He might not be an Omega Wexxian... but Verys is still the First Knight of Vengeance. He specializes in anti Nameless warfare and has a special purpose Tech-4 Combat Shell. Nothing short of planetary destruction is going to breach his shields.

Of course... that Atomna might mean trouble!  ;D

Deahnsus, one of the most prominent playwrights, was made famous for telling his sensationalized, but mostly true account of the life of a Chailraeth, graid inventor of the dirigible, who, in later life, suffered from mental trauma. this was a reflection of Deahnsus 's own struggles with psychosis (a more common condition with graid than humans), which he eventually overcame. he was well respected amongst his peers-and criticized by his detractors-for his unusually personal touches in his performances and elaborate set pieces.

and then he was incinerated in less than ten seconds, along with exactly two hundred and fifty five others.

In better news I have an interesting idea. Rather than do a couple of large scale RPs that may increase the chance of collapse, we’ll do several tie-in RPs with one “Main Branch”. For example while “The battle of Origin” might be the main RP, the specific RP detailing affects on say, Opsomnis and the Wraiths in the bunker might be “TBOO: Chained Heat” Or the trials of Commander Val'onnes and the Bino as “Mayhem and Mystery’ That way we increased the density of RPing and let everyone have a chance to be in the spotlight. What do you think?

that would actually be nice, seeing how big, multi-event threads tend to get confusing.

and the graid really don't have any secret ingredient super weapon or anything. they shine in conventional combat, not all this "ultimate destroyer of the universe" stuff. not that I'm necessarily against that.

also, allways remember to tag the thread as related, otherwise it will be hard to follow.

Ok, this is about to be wrapped up. So how bout this, the delegates make a heroic sacrifice and command the fleet to shoot the moon rock early so the Atomna doesn't take down the refugee ship that launched before them. So the fleet launches the rock at Os.

This, as I have not had a chance to get in.  Plus it makes everything neat and tidy and allows for multiple things to happen at once.  Though since Yuu is the main antagonist it might put undo pressure on him to keep up with multiple threads.

I have a battered first Knight that needs to die: Verys!

And a psychotic mass murderer who wants airtime: Furiosus!

Varius other characters that can die at random intervals... and my main character Litaria, who has vanished.

Well it's sort of both, seeing as how they're both in space anyway Jack can make a post about how he launched the Atomna into space on purpose then the Forged Fleet can kill it, then Rithan shows up and then it's a wrap up. After this gets sorted we need to design the tie-ins. (I think we got four in pre-production.)

Giving Verys' Zero Point core to Ty'cen might be an interesting idea. The Wexxians have currently no measures against a falling moon... the destroyers TOW Cannons can make big holes in it but it wouldn't stop it falling.

Guys start wrapping things up.

Then I'll post up my second-to-last post, and then everyone can make their closing posts.

Afterwards, I'll officially conclude the first arc.  :)

Excellent work so far, guys!  8)

You're all awesome!  :)





On a related note, I'm sorry to say this, but Lush wouldn't be able to continue personally posting in this RP for personal reasons. Don't bug me why, since it's very, very personal, as I've already said.

I have, however, received confirmation that she's willing to give me control of her assets in the RP at least until we wrap up the RP as a whole.

In any case, if you want to speak to her personally, you could e-mail her using the one on her profile.

That is all.



Ps.

Advanced call: It seems I'll be heading off somewhere without internet access for about two or so weeks, so I guess the timing of the first Arc seems to be great. Well, in any case, I'll probably back by early November, so I advise everyone to get a breather once this Arc is over. This could also be a great time to clear out some problems regarding our many sub-plots.

In any case, I'll try and finish this Arc off before I leave momentarily, so I guess wish me luck!  :)

Sorry for double posting but I just have a quick question. Is the assault on Verog going to be a major part of Act 2?
Title: Re: They Who Cannot Be Named: The Battle for Origin: OOC and Planning
Post by: Yuu on October 16, 2010, 06:31:08 am
Not yet.

Arc 2 will focus on "getting to know our adversaries", that is, setting up who fights who.

The "Great Assault on Verog", or something to that effect, is reserved for the very last arcs.

Okay, I was not in this arc because Milika apparently don't get invited to parties very often.  However, I would appreciate a summary of what's happened, because I don't feel like reading all that.

Also, was the GPA involved at all, because if it was, no one told the Milika... >__> 
Title: Re: They Who Cannot Be Named: The Battle for Origin: OOC and Planning
Post by: Yuu on October 16, 2010, 07:44:41 am
The GPA was involved in the summit [there's probably a Milika rep. somewhere down on Olosis], but the attack by the rogue GPA, all the protagonists are pretty much scratching their heads right now.

Basically, five years have passed since the Galactic Conflict.

The Wexxians have left Hatia following bad press when a rogue Wexxian bombed the planet. This forced the Knights of Vengeance to set up shop elsewhere, in the Athanatsu system, to be exact.

In any case, there is now a galactic defense summit on Olosis, a minor generic filler planet in the SPA, and everyone is pretty much invited.

Unfortunately, some seemingly berserk GPA soldiers blast through the walls and began attacking the representatives. Soon, an all out orbital siege of the planet by rogue GPA forces began. At the same time, similar attacks by rogue GPA began all across the galaxy.

Eventually, the fighting on the defense summit escalated until a strange anomaly, a giant ball of light, consumed the city that the summit was being held on [Silesa City]], preventing communication in and out of the anomaly. At the same time, the rogue GPA in orbit stopped attacking and remained stationary while they were pummeled by coalition forces. Eventually, the anomaly disappeared and the rogue GPA in orbit came back to life, but this time they converged on the planet's lone moon, concentrating all of their power on it and unleashing an unidentified beam weapon on the moon, shattering it and sending the debris falling towards Olosis, pretty much sealing the world's fate. Afterwards, a different-looking Atomna suddenly appeared on the sensors and began attacking the coalition, leading to an intense battle which resulted in the coalition dropping a moon fragment on the Atomna and an Elite Synthetic Wexxian [Verys] sacrificing himself to defeat the Atomna.

At the end of the battle on Olosis, the planet is starting to melt from the impacts as people are being evacuated. Up in orbit, the Atomna is confirmed dead after its lifeless husk is discovered.

Other Atomna across the galaxy have also gone violent, however, and they are still in the process of being taken out, along with other rogue GPA forces.



One of the most vulnerable target of the rogue forces is the Talsenreave Station, which is currently about to be reinforced by an Orealyianis interception detachment, among others.



Meanwhile, a distress signal from a Photos outpost said that they are being attacked by a Nameless Assault Node. The Photos and Galdeen head to the area only to discover that it is a trap, forcing them to retreat, but not before Val'ones is abducted and brainwashed by none other than Lakis Duavon, who apparently sided with "THEM" fter he got stranded in the Novus Cluster. Val'ones managed to send a message to the coalition telling that he was about to be brainwashed, though, and the Ni'Calls have already sent an infinitesimally small drone to try and establish a direct link with Val'ones in an effort to gather intel, and hopefully perform cyber warfare on the enemy [which is, of course, a double-edged sword, unfortunately].

Later, a similar attack begins in another colony, this time it is all out as several slave armies are finally deployed by a mind-controlled Val'ones.



Back on Tanariadne, the Orealyianis First Fleet, and in turn, the Vara Orealyianis, is setting out for Verog, the Atomna homeworld to find out what's wrong. It'll be pretty risky though, as most rogue GPA are of Orealyianis origin and any wrong move by the monarchy may send out the wrong message to everyone else. Despite this, the king Foriza, along with nine star admiral Shanara, sets out for Verog, leaving behind the Athanatsu Defense Force and the Knights of Vengeance to defend the system.



While all of this is happening, several cloaked figures are deep within Verog itself and seemingly in a very intense fight against Nameless dronels [the small round black yellow-eyed things] as they head deeper into the planet's bowels to find out the truth behind the attacks.

question: if the Nameless mega superduper deus ex machina ship is the size of a solar system, that makes it one of the largest objects in the galaxy. you could throw a star at it and it wouldnt die.

Ok, making a star go nova, that might be a problem. Some of the older races may have a way to do that. But the younger ones like my races and the Pentekonterus. But I think I know how.

I've read a book a month ago. In it, a alien race was fighting for their survival against a galaxy-spanning hostile empire. What the first race did in order to destroy their invading fleets was detonate their stars. They did this by using a warp-capable capsule. I'm not exactly sure what it said when this capsule did go through a star, but I think it destabilized the fusion reaction in the star's core, making it nova.

I think my Galdeen could do the same using a destroyer.

OOH! HEY! I HAVE AN IDEA!

If you wanted to move a planet or something, you could use a stargate like Yuu said before, right there.

I just remembered that the Ni'Calls actually MANUFACTURE sorts of artificial, sustained wormholes for use in galactic spacelanes. There are numerous ones in orbit around Zessus Prime, the center of government for the USSS.

They're only a few miles in diameter, but what if one were to be manufactured that could sustain a few million mile diameter hole? We'd have to work together, but that could work to move a planet, or bigger...

You know what they say, necessity isn't the mother of invention, War is.  ;)

Oh, and I'm working on plans for my own little sub-RP too, FYI.

We could simply use the GPA thread, if it's okay with you guys.

Maybe the Directress, Hatena Rolu, is currently coordinating the GPA's strategic maneuvers and has, by extension, opened a line to all other agencies and nations fighting the Nameless.

Indeed, a tactical and strategic discussion would be nice. We have to keep the timing in mind, though. All currently active TWCBN RPs are occurring at pretty much the same time, so I guess it wouldn't be much of an issue for now.

Alright, though I suggest we post what advantages and disadvantages our races find out once word actually reaches our respective civilizations.

For example, the Hell-An and Republic ships defending Kuuruk has discovered a powerful weapon against the Nameless ships, yet I'm not going to say what it it in character until that fight is over and the fleet gives their after-action report to their respective military commands and them to their governments.

Arc II is up, so yeah.

For those who aren't into the know or want to refresh their memory, the following stuff happened:

The Talsenreave and the rest of the star system practically vanished and is now in an unknown location isolated from everyone else. The same thing happened to Verog and the Photos and Orealyianis ships around it.

The coalition is gonna defend Beyon from a large force of Awakened Atomna making their way through that star system mentioned in the arc's opening post. Anyone with a fleet, don't be shy to drop in.   :)

What is going on?


The coalition is gonna take on an approaching wave(s) which threatens Beyon by luring them into a choke point [yes, the baddies can simply go to Beyon directly, but then again, they don't seem to be particularly smart folks, do they]. The coalition is then going to do some particularly unholy things to the area, nasty enough to warrant evacuating the system of any bases that were once in it.

While that's happening, the Orealyianis' First Fleet, a full-sized Photos Fleet, the Phitire Fleet, as well as everyone that was guarding Talsenreave, are now trying to find a way out of their current predicament after being whisked away by the enemy to an as of yet unknown location. And if the station starting to get a serious case of enemy breaching is any indication, the locals... aren't very friendly.

Why is darkness evil? Have you ever looked directly at the sun?

Anyways, it seems that all this action is taking place on the other side of the galaxy in relation to the Perrachi. But I'd say that an invasion of Beyon would be particularly troubling, as it's the farthest planet populated by sapients that a Perrachi has ever set foot on. There are a few thousand citizens living there, and if the Nameless take it over that would mean potentially gaining greater unrestrained access to the western galaxy. Only problem is the PSID doesn't even know the Nameless exist, let alone the Orealyianis. Would getting military assistance from the Perrachi and co. be a priority for anybody here? All it takes is a diplomatic vessel and a few weeks in hyperspace(with stops at the Kratair and the Graid).

All darkness isn't necessarily evil, it's the particular reason for Their darkness which is of concern.

Their skin is actually still white, they simply look dark because Their bodies actively pull in light from the surrounding area. An oddly selective event horizon, if you will.



Would getting military assistance from the Perrachi and co. be a priority for anybody here?

Considering the existence of Strange Matter technology, yeah, pretty much.

Oops. Reading comprehension fail on my part.  :D

Let's see...

Considering that the Perrachi actually have/had a pretty top tier military, and is/was one of the, if not the most prominent in their part of the galaxy, I'd guess so.

Even without the hardware, the guys' experience alone would do wonders for training everyone else, particularly the armed forces of the unmentioned/bystander/greenhorn races out there.

As far as I know of the region, the guys involved in the USSS are really the only ones that could keep that place together in case something serious comes knocking at the door.   :)

Well, the USSS de facto dissolved after the PSR was destroyed, but now that everything's settled down it could easily be re-established. The ten Perrachi nations bicker between themselves but would definitely unite in the face of a common threat. They could never fight each other because they only control one star system each, and the rest is maintained by the PSID (http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=15272.msg741606#msg741606).

However, they'd only be convinced to fight if Beyon City was taken. As you can see, (http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=15272.msg852997#msg852997) that would give the Nameless easy access to the USSS region of space, with only the Kratair and the Graid standing in their way on that much-used route.

Well, the Kratair are also pretty tough in terms of military experience and hardware. They're some of the toughest guys around, in fact. However, they would be the only real line wall of defense if Beyon were to be taken, so that would still unite the Perrachi.

I was kinda speaking more of the constituent nations themselves than the organization as a whole, actually. Hope that clears it up.


They're some of the toughest guys around, in fact.

Indeed.

Pound per pound I think they're pretty much on the top five, if not three, of the most battle-hardened spacebattlers out there.

Goes to show just how much you can achieve when you give a race of veloceraptors some spaceships and hundreds of years of experience exclusively living on them. They're basically the Macross fleets, but with claws, sharp teeth and the ability to spawn miniature suns at the face of anyone who just as much as look at them funny.


Ps. Just want to clear up that what I mean is that the Perrachi are basically one of the most vital trump cards in the region and would be quite of help if the place does get breached.

The Kratairian Fleets are huge and vastly experienced since they all live in space, preferring it over planetary life. Their homeworld blowing up partly because of its atmosphere sorta helped to motivate them as well.

This has now been going on for at least several centuries now.

Because of those said above they have mastered space-faring life to a T, creating numerous caravans of heavily defended mobile space colony vessels that pretty much serve as their population centers. These caravans are completely self-sufficient, with each one capable of restarting Kratairian civilization if worst comes to worse. This combined with their highly scientific and combat-oriented culture pretty much makes them one of the most badass and hardest to put down races in the history of the galaxy.

In short, anyone who declares war on them is in for a world of hurt.


There.

Post by: GroxGlitch on September 08, 2011, 04:51:25 pm
Ok, I've got a few questions thanks to ideas popping into my head.
1. The Terran-Radians. For them, I remember Yuu saying something about them being your quote-un-quote "Lawful Good", barring the fact that there is an embedded "program" that forces loyalty to the Nameless. Now, per my understanding of Programming, as explained in The Extended Yuuniverse, this is either not THAT sort of "Programming", or it WAS a program that manipulated their genetic code to force loyalty (ala Core Combine). With either way, they could possibly be made an ally through the Zeront and their genetics mastery (serving as a way to introduce them to the Perrachi, as well as give them a meaningful way to get involved in the conflict).
Or, as usual, I could be dead wrong.
2. This, per my knowledge, has never been gone over before: What is the shielding of your race like, for their ships?
The Photos use thick hull armor for the ship itself, fairly simple and straight forward. The shields of Photos ships are designed for stopping energy attacks: solid projectiles such as shells, missiles, and the like pass right through unhindered, which the armor takes. While Photos shields are very good at stopping energy attacks, they have a critical flaw: many attacks spread over a relatively small area can destabilize that area of shield for a second and, while it's only an opening of about a second, well-timed attacks can get through. While the Phased Mode of their shield generators (the shield refreshes several million times every second) eliminates this, Phased Shields are terrible at stopping beam weapons as part of the beam still slips through as the shield refreshes, essentially just breaking up the beam. Usually, enough still gets through to cause at least SOME surface damage.
Their ships also feature point-defenses; automated, rapid fire guns that track and shoot down incoming projectiles. The plasma ones do a good job of taking out missiles and shells, while laser ones take out the high-speed projectiles of Mass Drivers, Railguns, and the like.
Title: Re: They Who Cannot Be Named: The Battle for Origin: OOC and Planning

1. The Terran-Radians.

The former, actually.

Also, the guys behind the Ariadnian Uprising pretty much ninja'd the idea that already.


What is the shielding of your race like, for their ships?

Hmm, this could take a while...

Okay, here we go:


Most Orealyianis armor, including fighters and most fortifications, are knock-off versions of the nanomechanical plating used by the Terran-Ixians. Kind of like the original, they are capable of some basic programs which help improve longevity and overall effectiveness.

It's quite hard to spot on most standard fighter mounted scanners, and more so when the Orealyianis asset in question is as "small" as a VA. High-end EW&C (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Airborne_Early_Warning_and_Control) systems pretty much nullify the stealth capability of standard armor, though mid-end models may still have some problems spotting Orealyianis assets from time to time.

Durability-wise, its cache of programs allow it to mimic a variety of composite configurations, though due to the differences in ship scales between the Orealyianis and Terran-Ixians, they are far less adaptable. Regardless, it could be suited for deflecting energy weapons this minute and kinetic weapons the next, in much the same vein as the original. That said, it is royally screwed against a skillfully managed combined weapons maneuver of sufficient power.

Sustainability-wise, it fares best against spread-type damage since its regenerative nature allows it to completely heal from anything not larger than a man-sized hole without any need for support units. Holes larger than that, however, don't tend to approximate well (http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080323232459AAxPJaT) and do need the assistance of dedicated repair units to heal in any sensible stretch of time.

As a final note, the armor is quite resistant to natural wear and tear, and is incidentally quite useful when operating in highly abrasive or corrosive areas. It also doesn't hurt that it scrubs away graffiti all on its own.

That's the basic setup, anyways. Assets with a dedicated stealth coating are much harder to detect, especially to sensors that work by detecting fluctuations in the fabric of space-time. This is all, however, at a relatively more steep cost. It is for this reason that they're mostly used for espionage and other equally asymmetrical operations.

Regardless of what type of armor is used, it is seldom used on its own. On larger ships, it is almost always used in conjunction with MLMs and high rate of fire CIWS (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Close-in_weapon_system) plasma cannons. On smaller platforms like VAs, the standard load of MLMs usually fill in this role.


TIER, on the other hand, use what can be considered quasi-Terran-Ixian armor. It sorta looks like Terran-Ixian, it sorta acts like Terran-Ixian, it sorta is like Terran-Ixian. That said, the original is still better.

Aside from this, TIER also employs particle barriers which are good at blocking most things as long as the one formulating the barrier isn't overwhelmed.


Finally, Terran-Ixian armor is the originator of the above systems. Like its adaptations, it is composed of a soup of program-capable nanomachines. Using Programming, the armor can adapt to a large number of different scenarios, more so than the former ones thanks to the far larger scale of Terran-Ixian vessels.

There really isn't much more to say about it than being capable of doing anything the Orealyianis and TIER verisons can do.

Aside from armor, Terran-Ixians also use several other methods of defense, from creating particle barriers, phasing out of normal space, bending space to redirect oncoming attacks, bending space to fling attacks back at the enemy, generating an electromagnetic barrier which acts both as a traditional barrier and as an area denial weapon, to disabling or redirecting oncoming projectiles using a mix of hyperlinks and surgical precision particle barriers, among others.


Everyone else in the SPA, like the Luzonians and Chivi, has your "traditional" sci-fi ship defenses, more or less. Do note, though, that they still contain certain variations.

The Chivi focus more on solid armor and solid projectile CIWS, the latter could range from missiles to miniature railguns.

The Luzonians tend to mix force fields with their solid armor while also employing energy-based CIWS.

Maybe because they don't see actual combat much, the Choro Deidalus are the direct opposite of the Chivi, with their cardboard ships and heavy reliance on active energy defenses.

Pakuweinia are basically industrial scale farmers IN SPACE so they really aren't known for their military. If you ever manage to ask one, though, they're ships are just as armored as you would expect of any merchant marine vessel.

Asemi haven't actively engaged in any war since they were contacted, so their actual military capability, if any, is still a big unknown. However, judging from what we do know about their technology, they appear to have the potential to employ top of the line defense systems, but not the motivation nor philosophy necessary to put it in use.

The Marakiri are basically Luzonians with most of the shields and armor replaced by point defenses.


The Atomna, well, there's already a whole arc showcasing its many methods of defense so there's really no point in elaborating about it further.

I should take the time now to talk about the Goonal military. Keep in mind that almost everything in the original Goonal thread is non-canon, and I'm going to get around to making a new thread one of these days. Hopefully soon.

Goonal space stations vary widely in size, with the largest ones being roughly half to two-thirds the size of the original Death Star. The lone exception to this is the RSS* Sanctuary, which is about 1.2 times the size of the original Death Star. These space stations are remarkably well-defended (unlike the Death Star), with ultra-heavy force field and conventional shielding and diverse types of turret** defenses both specialized and adaptable: long-range turrets, short-range turrets, medium-range turrets, home-on-the-range turrets, orbital turrets, you name it. There are turret types up the wazoo***.
Virtually every single other type of Goonal military spaceship relies on hit-and-run tactics: they are small, accurate, and very fast-moving targets. Goonal tacticians have practically perfected these hit-and-run strategies. This combined with the sheer size of the UGP fleet makes for a rather formidable foe in space.

On the ground, however...well, they tend to avoid that. Instead, they send in aircraft and/or bombard the surface from orbit (another thing that they're good at). There aren't any troop carriers, drop ships, tanks, infantry, or really anything of the sort. The only real instances of what can even be considered ground troops in the Goonal military are Spec-Ops.
"I am not Commander Val'ones."
- Rear Admiral Kasark Huld

*Royal Space Station.
**Not all of these are actually turrets in the common sense of the word. Here, it refers to any direct non-shield form of defense.
***In the field of alien organs, the wazoo is not to be confused with the monetary bladder, tria gland, or splanch.

That actually makes a ton of sense, seeing as having the high ground [in this case orbital space] is basically an "I win" button, seeing as almost any resistance can simply be solved by the proper application of orbital bombardment. For those special cases where collateral damage is deemed unfavorable, the Spec-Ops are pretty much tailor fit for the task.   :)

You’re making it leak out.

It’s boring. There I said it. There’s only so much drama and storytelling you can squeeze out of a conversations on a communicator and impersonal beam spam battles in starships. And I hate to just see all combat reduced to Point Amazing Super Weapon of Doom At Target: I Win.

Personally, I think we should just go back to Communicant War (http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=10414.0) style interpretation of physics. Those people KNEW how to have fun.

The reason I'm trying not to rant about it is because I realized that when I compared it to my other favorite sci-fi universes: Star Wars and 40k in particular, they too have orbital bombardment AND epic ground battles. The reason being that 86% of the time an epic ground battle was happening, two massive fleets where duking it out above them... So then I realized it was not necessarily the end of the world fun for me.

In all honesty, in the end yours and my tastes are completely different. So this may or may not explode into an argument later.

I don't like your description "Impersonal Beam Spam." For one thing, since when is any kind of battle personal? (Except those involving Spaniards and six-fingered men.) For another, I happen to like cool flashy lasers.

To tell the truth, we can have awesome ground battles and awesome space battles. Remember the opening to Star Wars III? Now that's the kind of space battle I'm talking about. You could also RP adventures on board a space station with two or more factions duking it out. I don't see any reason whatsoever why any kind of ground battle or space battle should be a bad idea.

1. Amazing Super Weapons of Doom are pretty rare anyways, and they'll definitely need quite a while to charge up. That gives people a sense of urgency but also the idea that it can be stopped. Remember the Romulan red matter in the new Start Trek movie? Disabling the giant laser and all? If they're instantaneous, I call godmodding.

2. If you're going to wipe your ass with the laws of physics... You know what? Just don't. There's actually a whole lot of completely awesome and super amazing things that can be done within the bounds of reality, like relativistic projectiles and railguns. But if you adhere to Treknobabble and spew forth a bunch of sciencey gibberish that makes no sense, the whole thing will degenerate into a mess of anti-logic. Seriously, realism (or at least semi-realism) can be fun! Imagine nitrogen/phosphorus-based lifeforms who breathe ammonia and attack with electromagnetic energy weapons! That's cool!

Yeah, I don't think that it's very easy to write a dramatic, fun story about two remotely-operated giant death ships instakilling each other from 200 miles. In future-esque sci-fi that makes any bit of sense, warfare is technically less up-close and personal.  Relatively, though, it can be as close to the enemy as one wants, with radio (or some advanced iteration of it), zooming 3-D cameras instead of glass cockpits, and, of course, boarding parties.
Imagine two massive frigates, miles above a planet's surface. Each of them is charging up a superweapon: the attacker's is aimed at a colony on the planet, and the defender's is aimed at the attacker. Since both frigates have defenses that can repel anything short of the superweapon, they have to resort to different, creative means of disabling each other. This is where the situation can be really fun and dramatic. Each side could launch slow-moving stealth mines, transfer boarding parties, or if all fails, ram the ship. I'm sure that there are many more ways of attacking, and that's the fun of it.
What I'm trying to say here is that you can make futuristic warfare fun and exciting.
