Title: Our creatures' Galactic War
Post by: Krakow Sam on March 15, 2006, 01:34:38 pm
With hostilities between the ViS and the Vizeara escalating it seems like a good time to start a more free-for all story in the vein of the prison escape.
However, there need to be rules or we're all sunk. If you want to have your creature included in the story please PM me with an outline of the role they are going to play in the conflict (what side they are on, who do they hate most etc etc).
Then post some battle pictures and detail some events which might occur (in chronological order). If you want to do serious harm to another creature (like destroy one of their planets) then PM the creature's creatror and ask them if theyre ok with it...

lets see how this goes.

The War was sparked a short time ago when the ViS stripped the surface off a planet in Vizeara space and turned it over to paper production. This angered the Vizeara and they began plans to destroy the interloping ViS...

 Heres the run up to the war:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A message to the ViS from the Vizeara....you are banned from the space quartile in which the Vizeara live. Such blatant disregard for the nature goddess will not be tolerated, and if it continues will be met with force.

A message to the ViS from the Vizeara....you are banned from the space quartile in which the Vizeara live. Such blatant disregard for the nature goddess will not be tolerated, and if it continues will be met with force.

"The ViS do not aknowledge the exsistence or authority of the nature goddess. Furthermore, the paper processing facility on Lis 5 is authorised by the galactic arm property charters. Please refrain from tresspassing on ViS controlled installations. Our clerical services are available for hire if you require them. End transmission"
 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
.......The Vizeara do not acknowledge the authority of the galactic arm property charters. We are the leaders of this quartile, and deny you permission to harm any planets. Proceed to another quartile, and we will not protest, but this quartile is where we were born, and we oversee everything that happens within it, not the galactic arm property charters. Either comply and leave the quartile, or we shall declare war on all ships within the quartile. The decision is yours. Also, we do not care for clerical work   
 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"The ViS do not find it in their best interests to leave this section of space. Do not attempt hostilities. We also offer computer programming and waste consultancy contracts. Please explain the meaning of this expression: "


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  implies that clerical work is amusing, not something to be taken seriously, or be considered.

Now, the ViS have uncovered themselves to be selfish beings...the Vizeara couldn't give a Yaxis shell about the ViS's interests. Now the Queen is ordering that you explain your full intentions for this quartile. Respond immediately.

 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"The ViS require this sector of space for resource harvesting and service colonies. We predict that you will be initiating hostilities shortly. This is to be regretted. We do not understand your notions of amusement, we will note your cultural nuances in our database in case of future encounters"
 
 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 Your colonies have no place in this space. We would like to remind you that you do not have a full knowledge of the Vizeara, and the drawings posted do not include recent advances in technology. The Queen has ordered that all colonies leave the quartile immediately, if you refuse, you are undermining her authority and the will of the nature goddess. We ask the ViS one question: Will you leave, or will you force our species to war..it is that simple, none of your negotiating has achieved anything except buy you a little time...which is just about to run out.
 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The ViS will not leave. These negotiations have afforded us the time to breed and equip 500,000 additional peacekeepers. The ViS are not agressive, all actions are made purely out of defense.



 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Then you leave the Vizeara no other option. War is declared as of now, and we will be taking action to forcefully remove all colonies from the quartile in question. 500,000 does not intimidate us, as we value courage and soul above a numerical majority. It is unfortunate that you have forced us into war, as we do not embrace war, but simply endure it. We hope that something may come out of this war, but it is well known, war only leads to pain and suffering. Lines of communication will now be severed until approximately 7pm tomorrow, 15th March, London time.

So now you know the little fall out these two have had....whos side are your creatures on?

The ViS have stated that they will act only defensively... the V-men did not. A fire 'mysteriously' broke out in the jungles of the Vizeara homeworld. The only clue the Vizeara find to who might have done it was a discarded object of Vittanepan design... they draw their own assumptions. ;)

 (previously) The Vizeara detect an unauthorised space ship entering their atmosphere. The assassins are alerted, but too late....
This enrages the Vizeara so much that they are ready to take any action necessary to bring those who did this to justice.

Its never too late. Anyone can get dragged into the war whenever.

Oh, and the Vittanepan are implicit in starting the fire. (see above)
Title: Re: Our creatures' Galactic War
Post by: Spore2DaMax on March 16, 2006, 10:37:20 am
 The Vizeara have sent out a group of three assassins to capture a small  ViS sentry space ship. They hold ViS survivors hostage, demanding that all ships leave the quartile within 5 hours, and any rescue attempts will be met by surrounding space cruisers and destroyed:

(http://www.sporewiki.com/images/2/22/VizearaSeige.jpg)

 Now they decide on how to deal with the Vittanepans. A plan is hatched to spy on their dealings with the ViS, and have all communications bugged, in order to decide any possible motive for the rainforest arson attack. Then, once they have enough information, they will make their move...but for now, its time for the ViS to make their move....

Just then (Da-Da-Daaaaa) a Dazkian warship (top right) warps into the solar system to prepare for the destruction of the system's sun and colinization. In a preliminary scan of the system for any other sentient beings the Dazkian ship fins that it is in the middle of the Vizeara space....a dangerous place for the destructive Dazkians to be. The ship makes a move to the nearby moon of the Vizearan moon and begins clouding operations with dust drones.
--------------
The cube ship is the ViZ (I didn't know what ViZ ships look like so I just thought it would be a gray cube.).
Below that is the deepspace explorer of a race yet to be named.

If you have any questions on what the Dazkians are like refer to their topic at http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=2963.0

The ViS ships are detailed on this page. Scout ships would be the same but smaller. I thought about cubes but I decided it would be too much of a rip-off.

A V-man makes a deal with a group of Culid mercenaries in a seedy alien bar on some backwater planet. In exchange for a sizeable sum of credits the Culid will lend their fighter-craft and multiple-gun toting skills to the combat. A ViS ship carries the mercenaries towards Vizeara space.

Yeah. I agree. Everyone stop. Rules come tommorow.

Although I did say you should pm me if you want to participate.

Ok, we have some preliminary combatants. The order will from now on be:

Krakow Sam (me!) [ViS]
Spore2Damax [Vizeara]
Sparr [Vittanepan]
Shadow eagle [mystery ship race]
Kalcion [kalcion]
Samog (if theres much for the mercenaries to do) [culid mercenaries]
Dr Dozzy [mystery T'alon system race]

I'll post next. If anyone else wants to be involved or even included as a one-off then please PM me and i'll decide where your creature slots in.

Oh, and any communications between races (making alliances, threats etc) can be made out of turn but no actions can be made. If you want to secretly ally through PMs then when you reveal the alliance please post a summary of what was 'said' by the creatures in the 'secret negotiations'.
Title: Re: Our creatures' Galactic War
Post by: Spore2DaMax on March 17, 2006, 08:30:14 am
Before things can get going we need to know who's side each creature is on. Its either the ViS or the Vizeara...

ViS: Culids, Inseilanoids (perhaps using the ViS for their own purposes), Dazkians, Vittanepan (possibly)

Vizeara: Shadow Empire

 Please can the other creatures (players) that have not committed themselves yet, declare who they have an alliance with. A brief summary is that the ViS are fighting for the right to farm all land life from planets and create endless cities (if you enjoy clerical work, this is the one for you!). The Vizeara are fighting to put nature first, and have vast rainforests, with minimal cities (naturalists, this is the side you want to be on!).

I will keep editing this post, to keep as a log for all current creatures, and any newcomers. Either PM Krakow Sam, or post your allegiance on this thread.
Title: Re: Our creatures' Galactic War
Post by: Krakow Sam on March 17, 2006, 10:20:09 am
Ah, good. That gives me something to go on.

(http://img46.imageshack.us/img46/8759/visagents1po.jpg)

UAB agents Mr.16, Mr.29 and Mr.84 teleport from an unknown location into the bowels of the inseilanoid ship.



Meanwhile, this transmission was sent out from the ViS colony in this sector on all frequencies:

"Administration notes a number of armed vessels of various design in this sector. Do not harm the ViS. We will retaliate with deadly force if required"
Ships are dispatched to the borders of ViS space.

 With the 5 hours up, and the Vizeara sensing that ViS attack ships will close in soon, they hijack the ship and abandon it on the edge of Vizeara space, next to the barren planet M5N1, the Vizeara equivalent of Area 51. They plant a bomb on the ship, that will be triggered if the ship is entered, or operated. Unknown to any other species, the Vizeara have established a large colony here, underground and hidden from view. This is one of the planets that is used to build weaponry, and the new generation of Vizeara mechs. Laser cannons, missiles and a fleet of space ships wait underground, ready to strike when a rescue team appears.

The Shadow Empires Explorer "Discovery" detects a Vis Ship on its long range Sensors.
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v493/phoenix87/I1.jpg)
On the way the ship picks up this tansmission *Static*... Vis. We will ...*Static*... with deadly force ...*Static*
On arrival the discovery is attacked by a vis ship, after the ships exchange a few shots the vis ship is disabled.
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v493/phoenix87/I2.jpg)
Once the ship is disabled the Discovery pulls the vis ship into its hanger bay, the ship is probed to learn more about the Vis and the galatic war.
 (Note: The model of the Imperial ship Discovery isnt quite finished so you will have to bear with me.)

There you have it... the ViS have some highly unreliable allies. If anyone wants to even things out and support the Vizeara then PM me and/or Spore2Damax

The alroakt will shortly be entering the fray, Rikis can take his turn after the Vizeara.

Ok umm i totally understand if you decline but the player of the VIS i would like to ask you a favour. could you ceate some Reason for you to accidentally bomb my planet thus eradicating most life on it and turning it into a barren waste land? its just i need a reason for my secondary creature to be able to evolve and destruction of my primary species by an intergalactic war just seems a more interesting option than say plague or nuclear holocausts.

I want to be in the war, but i don't know on wich side.
My race is similar to the Vizeara (they're both large lizards) so they could go for them in that matter.
But my race seeks out technology wherever they can find it and the VIS tech looks good and could draw them into an alliance with them.

Only one question. Are the VIS a democracy???

Yay ;D, Ok while only one Anubian joins the Vis, he Doesn't join by Contract here how it all started the adventure of Hype Tosh. After the transmission, the V- man took a break to his planet to discuss with other V-men but was pulled into an alley (if the Vis have alleys). there stood a shady Anubian with scars across his face.

 -Whats this, what do you want!- said the Vis

 -I want a cut if the action- Chuckled the Anubian

 -I don't know what your talking about-

 -Oh don't play dumb with me- said the Anubian pulling out a small box and pressing a button

We have a proposition for you: We will help you to
eliminate the beings in this sector, but only on the condition that you do not interefere in the affairs of the UAB or the ViS.
If not, then theres always... the alternative <holds up sinister flashing device>

*Undecernable language*
-You really think that we do care-
-For the drones upon this ship, should you tear-
-The ship in two, we shall return-
-A thousand ships more to burn-

-But for the while we will fight-
-Your poxy war for our plight-
-To return life to our God-
-Threw our burning rod-

Perhaps you misunderstand the purpose of this device...
it is not a mere explosive device.
We have been aware of your, frankly grotesque, civilisation for some time now...
and its portal technology.
Attack us and we will use our technology to hijack your portal system and
tear the space around your home planet to shreds... fair? <evil smile>

-The queen is pleased, offer your drones lives as a pact-
-And a hundred more ships will follow this track-

I believe we have a pact. 5000 cryogenically frozen ViS will be delivered to your vessel in due course.
If we meet again, it will be too soon.

 - what is it you want-
 -like I said, I want in, what is it your after-
 -I won't tell you nothing-
 -If you don't spill the bean this goes public, Only a good fee will stop me from blabbing now- Smiled the Anubian
 The vis gulped - Fine how much do you want, I give you 2500 Intergalactic credits-
 -Too low, make it 5000-
 -fine- Said the Vis opening his suitcase,-here, keep this on quiet- he hands him a card

(http://img146.imageshack.us/img146/88/blackmail4qw.jpg)

 -oh I will- Said the Anubian inspecting the card- Hype Tosh at your service, I'll dispose of this- he threw the recording device on the floor and crushed it with his big boots.

 -well now that your on our side I've got a mission for you- smiled the Vis.

 (next person come up with the mission)

Hype Tosh is that good to suprise a v-man or maybe that v-man should be fired for not being up to snuff with a regular v-man.

why don't we all just play nice and change the storyline a little?
for example:

The V-Man sitting at the bar had a problem. There was a job that needed to be done, and he needed to find someone to do it. After listening to some alien low-lifes talk for a while, he heard about a local Anubian bounty hunter, Hype Tosh, and that he was pretty darned good at what he did. So the V-Man made a few phone calls until finally...
"Is this Hype Tosh?"
"Yeah"
"Meet me in the alley outside of Praygor's in half an hour"
"You pay cash?"
"Of course"
The V-man finished his drink and went outside. Hidden in the dark alley, like he'd said, was a lone Anubian.
The V-Man started down the alley, when the Anubian spoke up.
"How much you payin'?"
"2500 credits"
"Make it 5000"
*sigh* "Fine, 5000 credits"
The Anubian stepped out of the shadows.
"Hype Tosh at your service."
And the V-Man began to tell Hype the assignment...


see, now isn't that better? the story's pretty much the same, the pictures work, and the natural laws of v-men go unbroken... ;D

What me, well i'm sorta powering up to send thousands of ships to this sector, which will be pants for the game to be honest, so something needs to happen, ie, the first shots ;)

well i've waited long enough to join anyway, so if no one objects, i'd be honored to fire those first shots ;D

well, i figured that they'd side with the vizeara, becasue no one else is, and it would be more of a 'challenge'
 
then i figured if our 'side' won, then they'd fight the vizeara...

Actually, I was waiting on turns, but seeing how that wasn't happening, I did have two pictures ready to be posted for the Vizeara to respond to, since the Alroaxt would side with them and absolutely detest the ViS.  But I'm at the university right now and I'd have to get home first to post it.

The Alroaxt, having kept an eye on the Vizeara, were ready to make their move and propose a sort of friendship between their races.  The Alroaxt are intrigue by the Vizeara's affinity to nature, and believe them to be direct descendents of their god of nature, Jokt.  Though they do respect their believe in their goddess, so they only call them the creatures of nature.  They sent one of the diplomatic ships of the Path of Balance to their planet:

Though, since this ship is weaponless, and they had heard reports of disturbances they brought their Flow of Chaos warships to scout this area of space:

(http://img410.imageshack.us/img410/2742/vizstoryspace5jz.jpg)

Always on the lookout for enemies, as the Alroaxt are not known to be the most passive of creatures in the universe, for their religious zealotry and continued stubbornness to accept some creatures' godless ideals.  Little did they know of the Vizeara's troubles with the Alroaxt most hated beings, the ViS.  The fact that they simplify everything and their shapeless bodies makes it hard for them to place a patron god for them, makes the Alroaxt think of the ViS as abominations.  Though some are willing to work with them, most Alroaxt don't hold back from showing their disgust of them.

a torpal warship was cruising through space. suddenly, their sensors started going haywire. "sir, there's apparently hundreds of ships from different species in the next system"  captain mack smiled. "sounds like a war to me. let's head on in." as they entered the system, they noticed a completely barren planet, with a small, white block moving across the surface. "the hell is that?" mack asked "take the ship down now" as they neared the surface of the planet, they discovered that the block was actually a formation of VIS troops, millions of them, marching across the stripped surface. "ooh, these're them desk workers. what'd'ya say we show 'em how to really fight?" with an enthusiatic cheer all around, the ship landed in the middle of the VIS, and the 300 or so torpal soldiers emptied into the crowd. the torpal began tearing through the soldiers like a knife through butter.
(http://img2.freeimagehosting.net/uploads/3e63c6ec9b.jpg) (http://www.freeimagehosting.net/)
the VIS were no match for the torpal, but there were simply too many VIS to kill, with more soldiers being deployed all the time. the torpal weren't one to surrender, so they fought for days. finally, with a flash of light, they found themselves in a jungle. a lizard-like creature stepped from the shadows. 'greetings. i am a reperesentative for the vizeara. we have watched you fight the VIS, and we would like to make an alliance". "so you teleported us here?" captain mack asked. "yes. the VIS wish to strip the planet of all resources, and they've gathered an exceptional number of allies. you are outstanding warriors, and with your help, the planet may be saved". "So you're saying that you guys are horribly outnumbered?" the vizearan rep nodded. "sounds like fun. boys, prepare for war!"  the torpal and vizeara shook hands, marking an alliance that the vizeara felt could work a miracle...

I don't know if they are accepting any more people, just make sure you notify them whose side you are on.

Operaghost, awesome battle scene.  Just one quip:  I wish you had drawn a torpal going after some Vis with his bare hands, maybe ripping one to shreds with his upper arms, and clobbering the others with his lowers.  That would have been cool.

Awesome artwork guys, I love this story.

yea i believe i was going to do something like that, but i didn't know if it should be too violent or not...because yeah, like the most violent thing in there now is the one VIS getting hit in the face with acid (thats what their gun shoots)

but dont worry, i'll make up for it...i'll do something extra cool and possibly gory like that in the future...  ;)

Right i got summat, as you ship is leaving the atmosphere of the planet, my warriors silently drift over to your ship, and attach themselves to the hull. They then proceed to rip holes into it, where they then jump inside and begin a blood bath, you wanna make the picture?


the torpal ship? i'm not sure who it would be a bloodbath for though... ;)  :D

Message to the Vis from the Adurians:

"You have shown blatant disregard to the Vizeara nature godess, and have openly defied their wishes. You have destroyed a planet under their ownership. Such attrocities cannot be ignored. You shall be purged."

And then a little satellite is gonna land on a fringe ViS world. Loaded with compressed carnivorus beetle packs.

How many planets to the ViS control?

A cloaked satellite accelerated into the planet, colliding with a fairly large tower, and unfolding a MASSIVE swarm of carnivorus beetles into the streets.

Pilot: seventy-five grand? That's supposed to be for terraforming a planet...But you can have it, if you desert...Wait..Why not collect both. We'll project a doppleganger for you to destroy, and we'll fix some other events to happen, so the Vis think you're working for them.. You collect the cash from the vis, and us afterwards from us for not helping them. ...Another 25 grand in it if you come to our side..

A recent communique from the Inseilanoid Queen to the ViS has revealed them to be more vulnerable then at first thought. They are now a permanent member of the collusion of intelligent species, recognising the ViS as their current military superiors.

"The ViS do not wish undue hostility to the species calling themselves the Vizeara, merely request that they respect ViS borders. We are calling off the Inseilanoid warfleet and ordering them to hold fast at the borders between ViS and Vizeara space to defend against incursions from the Torpal and Adurians. We hope the conflict can be resolved with minimal material losses for all sides."
Title: Re: Our creatures' Galactic War
Post by: operaghost21 on April 19, 2006, 02:20:01 pm
Prevoius to this, thousands of Inseilanoid's had drifted across sapce and cut into a Torpal warship, to attack, and anact revenge for the butchery of the ViS ground troops:
However, the operation was a disaster, the weaponary the Inseilanoids use turned out to be flawed as this was a field test for thier molecular disruption weaponary.
The Queen decided best to then with draw to the protection of the ViS and re-amass her armies.

i'll just elaborate a little, if ya' don't mind ;)


after the torpal warriors were transported off the VIS battlefield, the 50 or so pilots and technicians who had remained onboard the ship quickly jetted into space away from the vis army, where they scrambled to figure out where the warriors went. they were finally contacted by captain mack. he told them of their new alliance, and to head to the nearby planet vizeara.
before they could, however, numerous explosions rang throughout the ship.

Inseilanoids had drifted through space, and were breaching the warship. the torpals quickly armed themselves, but found that there was little to fight. most of the Inseilanoids were armed with prototype molecule disruptor weapons. many of these backfired, killing the users. many others simply did'nt work.  the Inseilanoids, realizing their fatal mistake, attempted to retreat, but, being unarmed, they were quickly killed.

the torpal warship returned to its planned course and later landed on vizeara, where the crew began making repairs to the ship's hull.



oh p.s.- i dont feel like explaining why right now, but the torpal that have allied with the vizeara currently only have one warship at their disposal (the one the Inseilanoids attacked), and there's only around 350 total torpal engaged in this war right now.

 "The Vizeara are, as always, ready to negociate. However, the terms have not changed and we still request that the ViS terminate any plans to strip planets in the Vizearan quadrant. We also wish to inquire about the cause of the forest fire on Vizuropiax, as the damage inflicted was quite severe, and many endangered animals have had to be relocated. We shall await a response from a ViS representative."
Title: Re: Our creatures' Galactic War
Post by: Krakow Sam on April 21, 2006, 08:42:02 am
In light of recent events the ViS have re-evaluated the potential profits to be reaped from Vizeara space. The ViS will withdraw for the forseeable future.

The Administration was not aware of a forest fire (OOC. Really, they arent. The UAB acts autonomously and are totally separate from the normal ViS government). Perhaps the Vizeara should tighten security on their colonies to prevent future disasters of this maginitude.

i guess just 'the first galactic war'; since their can always be more...



and if the war's over...
"what do you mean its over?!" captain mack howled.
"well, sir, after the failed inseilanoid attack, their forces have decided to seek some sort of peace..." his assistant answered.
"they promised us war!"
"well, there was that battle with VIS-"
"they're no soldiers! ready the men, we're outta here..."
and with that, a disgruntled group of torpals boarded their warship, launched a missile at a section of jungle, and left the system, looking for something better to do...
