Post by: GroxGlitch on November 07, 2010, 04:00:48 pm
Sooo....
Anyone else going to go? Yuu, perhaps?
Title: Re: They Who Cannot Be Named - The Ancients OOC
Post by: Yuu on November 08, 2010, 12:59:43 pm
I'll go next.

Just haven't figured out how Foriza and the rest of the First Fleet would react to this.

In response to said request, Ryo'lis forwarded the channel information the Vara Orealyanis.
The Photos couldn't do much but sit back and watch as the Atomna were decimated.

Err, don't the Ryo'lis' forces have like a million warships?  :/

They could more than easily chip in at the sidelines if they wanted to, just like what the Orries are doing.

Antimatter weapons = Big boom.
Big boom + Little ally zipping around = Friendly fire.

Get it? :P

*ahem*
Space is huge, mostly empty, and extremely open.

Tactics exist.

Get it? :P

Post by: Yuu on November 14, 2010, 03:37:16 pm
Omega pretty much hit the nail in the head.  :)


And I guess the Phitire can handle some friendly fire, seeing as their mechs seem to be capable of surviving the Atomna's dying explosions. Though, that's just me.

Tell him to go cause chaos in another part of the Atomna fleet while the Photos lob anti-matter at the part of the fleet nearest to them.

There, fixed.
Title: Re: They Who Cannot Be Named - The Ancients OOC
Post by: Yuu on November 15, 2010, 11:57:23 pm
Basically, he thinks the Phitire are the Photo's ascended ancestors, and are protecting the Photos from threats that are too large for them to personally handle.


Also, deep down, he's feeling kinda sorry for Kari, after seeing the massive disparity between the two races. xp

Your not the only one. Last time I checked, Yuu was held up by school work.

Alright, paranoid necro time.

Grox, these Phitire guys...your not actually going to have them stay after the Nameless war is over right?

Right now everythings fine because it's the dang Nameless were dealing with but... you know...

They're sticking around, but trust me, it's not going to be an issue. There isn't a whole hell of a lot of these guys.
Oh, and if you want to join in, you're more than welcome. It's kinda dull with just me and Yuu (no pun intended), it moves so slow.

What should we expect of on the surface?
Title: Re: They Who Cannot Be Named - The Ancients OOC

Likely lots of Atomna and maybe some Nameless minions. ;D

This. (http://media3.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/photo/gallery/100701/GAL-10Jul01-5040/media/PHO-10Jul01-235668.jpg)


But replace the balls with these (http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/cc97/Kurinatsu/Spore/Them_Dronel_Art.png) guys (http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/cc97/Kurinatsu/Spore/Them_Dronel_Scale.png) instead.


     "Dronels are all purpose drones used widely throughout "Their" Empire. Initially created as prototypes for the Terran Project, they have since been turned into all purpose units used mainly as maintenance personnel in slave worlds, frontline infantry in both small and large scale conflicts and ship personnel in "Their" Empire's fleets.

     Dronels can also vary in size. Some can be as small as a man while some as large as a small office building. They do this via their maximization program, which is their only major program other than their particle beams.

     A very big weakness of Dronels is their weak armor compared to the Terran races. Unlike The Terrans, Dronels can easily be destroyed even by primitive weapons like 19th century handguns. Another weakness of Dronels is that computer-wise, they are very competent, but when it comes to things not related to computers, like say writing an essay, they have the intellectual capacity of a four year old.

     However, despite these shortcomings, they still have one quality that makes them relevant to this day.

     They have strength in numbers. Massive numbers. They are easily mass produced as they have an extremely simple design and their computer systems are more primitive than that of the Terrans. Some "Them" generals have even been known to produce them on the spot. They are very cost effective, especially when charting unknown territory where accidents usually happen. All in all, a very useful unit, especially if they are very high in numbers.

     It is important to note, however, that dronels do not posses true life and are merely non-sapient drones."

Hey, I'm currently researching ten different diseases right now, all of which due tomorrow morning.

Terribly sorry, to all the four threads. >_>


Ps. Once we land, be careful what you step on. Verog might seem dead, with its mostly flat land and several sprinkles of inert, mountain-sized, pitch black gears jutting out here and there, but it is a death planet nonetheless. Don't let the deafening silence of the thin, dull, orange atmosphere's lack of any trace of wind or sound fool you into believing that no one's watching every step you make.

In any case, 95% of the planet's surface is actually basically composed of Nameless Dronels.

If you can see, I'm trying to finally work in that update between Lakis and the pure Nameless that was talked about a while ago.
Sorry for the short post, you aren't the only one burried in work :P

That Nameless in particular is this guy. (http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=16879.msg793561#msg793561)


PS. Nobody knows about the Nameless' true name, "Atheim", yet. For convenience, they can just be called "True Nameless".

Ps. Awesome retort there, Lakis.  ;)

The Republic defeated his Assault Node and his... Err... physical(?) form by using what was basically a primitive weapon system. He may have a Luminary Assault Carrier this time, but he is facing, not one, but three powerful races that are very much more powerful than my races. The only thing I'm doubting is that they will destroy it by the usual means (i.e. blasting it via lots of high power weapons).
Title: Re: They Who Cannot Be Named - The Ancients OOC

Reading it right now.



EDIT:

"If the pain get's too bad, take one of those. But only one, the're very concentrated, more than one could kill you." The drone said, returning the display console to the terminal on the wall. It went back to tapping away on the keyboard, going about it's daily business.

Most awesome medical bot ever!  ;D 8)

If only everyone could be as frank as that, no one would skip their meds.  ;) 8)


EDIT:

"Well, the Orealyanis fleet got decimated, the Vara disappeared, and the Orealyanis monarch was kidnapped." The stand-in commander said uninterestedly.

He has seen it all, it seems. (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SeenItAll)  ;)

My apologies in taking almost a week to reply, I, sadly, had to deal with the loss of a rather close relative.

It's ok, it's kinda a good thing. Aforementioned relative was bedridden and incessantly in pain. Still, T'was hard. :(
Anyway, I'm pretty much over it now, as I said it's better for her.

Pretty much everyone who knows their original name is either already dead or suffering from a severe case of selective amnesia.

Also, it's a not-so-subtle reference.
