Free Union Space, Kaivik System

The planets Kuuruk and Kiivck sat lonely in their tiny system, dancing around a middle-aged star. Then, a large object appeared, about the size of Kiivck. This, however, was no planet. It was a Nameless Assault Node. As the object loomed closer to Kuuruk, the sole inhabited planet in the system, there were some who began to take notice.

Nirulimuka, War Hall
The tension in the air could be felt as Kabalu's top military commanders discussed the course of action they recommended. Among the many items being discussed were the news of Drukl's death, the unexpected infiltration of the High Priest, and the fact that said priestn was working for the Nameless and loose on the P.S. Leviathan. As usual, Irbilika Falthus IV was present. However, there was less of an energy emanating from him than before. Anyone could tell that his age and his wounds from the war with Nirbalu were beginning to catch up with him. Those who could not tell from his eyes alone, noticed that the young princess, Mukri Falthus, stood at her father's side. She had recently come of age, and it was decided that she should learn what it was like dealing with the wars.

Headquarters of the Order of the Great Flame
Ever since Nirbalu's defeat in the war, the highest-ranking Paladins had been bound only to the code of their religion. To atone for the wrongdoings of the fallen and mend the damage from the battles, they had formed an order of holy warriors tasked with protecting the people while they rebuilt. They had recently begun to work quite closely with the Galdeen soldiers stationed on the planet, and even had access to a small group of private starships. All in all, they were concerned with how to deal with the threat looming overhead. At night, the Assault Node was spotted in a telescope. There was almost no mistaking it. A call had been made by both the Order and Kabalu to the Orealanyis, in the hopes of averting certain doom.

So, I had a thought. For our next non-canon RP, why not have an Origin version of these forums where a member of one of our races posts? They're all debating the meaning of a post left by an anonymous user: "They're here." Who are "They?" Where's "here?" All of these will be answered.

Our characters will each be introduced with a picture of them at their computers. Make your race's computer awesome! Robotic races can post by directly interfacing the Internet, or whatever our races call it.

So, whaddya think?

Everything Else / Embarassing Childhood Stories Thread
« on: October 15, 2010, 09:12:23 pm »
Tell all your embarassing stories from when you were in elementary school (and earlier) here! I will not start with one of my own, though I have a few.

So, here's my plan for constructing a new Communal Galactic Timeline.
1. Set a definite beginning. I'd say the sapience of the Nauceans would be a good start.
2. Set a defining BC/AD-type event, something that splits it in two. Perhaps the founding of the USSS?
3. Each poster will add their own race's events to the timeline depending on where it fits. For instance, the Pentekonterus' first contact would be towards the end, since that was just a few years ago by Galactic Standard. The Molybdyesi wouldn't be on there yet (especially since I'm not done building the thread.)
4. When all the bugs are worked out,TIMELINE! We also need a new map, since many races have come and gone. BTW, are there members of every race in Beyon City? If so, then the Peks would be the only ones not represented there, due to the extremely recent contact.
So, what do you think?

So, there you have it, our little RP/Game. There are several roles to be filled. We need a:
Also, random crew members.

So, the three ship types work like this: All ships have base stats, which will be posted in the next part. Sloops are the smallest ships, Caravels are in the middle, and Monitors are the largest. Feel free to critique and start building your characters. Use this form:

So, I proposed a crossover in the Project Talsenreave OOC (because the finished project is the plot device), and I wanted to make this thread so that I could update you guys on the leadup. We have 3 orders of business if we want to do this:

1. Finish our war against the Nameless.
2. Set up a separate site to make this crossover RP on.
3. Get the final green-light from the other forum.

Please post your thoughts here. I will link to my original proposal soon. Move this if you must, mods.

EDIT: The proposal was here:

Place your bets!

While Irbilika and his caravan went to investigate Baluvar, the task of containing the waterbug threat was left to the crew of the Heavy Heart and the forces of the Space Union...

It's stuck on Waluigi. Whenever I try to put a new one in (upload), it just empties the URL-thingy. What should I do? Also, is there already a thread for these sorts of bugs?

Storytelling and Roleplaying / The War of The Tomes
« on: September 06, 2010, 10:24:03 am »
In the year 2015, the great Literature Revolutions occurred in the wake of the release of Dragon Heart. Soon, all civilization had fallen into disarray as the tensions between fans and detractors became actual wars. Then, in 2020, from the mists of chaos rose a calmer time, in which civilization could be reborn. Billions are dead, but more than 2,500,000,000 remain. It is with these people that the legacy of literature- and of humanity- lies. They began to coalesce based on which books they liked the most.

So, the rules here are simple: pick a book and a place to put its fans, and you've got a country! Each turn will represent one year. You'll know what I was inspired by. NO JPEGS. Ok, GO! GO! GO!

It was just another day for the xenobiologists of the Heavy Heart. As the crew returned home, there were obvious differences between them.

Mlirku Rabay, the team's leader, was a female of about 32. She was headstrong, and tended to punctuate her sentences with "-bler." She looked over at her second-in-command, a younger female named Syhiru Mallid. She was shy, and uncomfortable around most of the others. In addition, there were the twin brothers, Miid and Pa'kk Dramis. The two of them were the least dedicated members of the team. However, they all had the same look on their face. It should have, of course, because of what they had just seen. Right before their eyes, there was a large, semi-terrestrial icthyo-arthropod... that had emerged from an underground lake. And it was trying to eat their ship. According to news reports, there were more of these things.

Storytelling and Roleplaying / Age of Empires: The Tale of Persia
« on: August 18, 2010, 06:13:41 pm »
Hello there, traveller! I see you are new to these lands. This is Canaan, and this town you see before you is a colony of the mighty Persian Empire. So far, the town itself isn't very impressive... two granaries, a town center, a barracks, and a dock. But I'm sure this can be fixed. As you can see, we have about 5 colonists here besides you, and they've built a row of houses down there. I'd say we can support about... 20 people? Oh! Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Darius. No relation to our great king's ancestor, of course, but my parents felt that any man named Darius was destined for greatness. My upbringing in Parsagadae would be of no great interest to you, but my position would. As of now, I am in good standing with almighty Xerxes, our leader. He made me captain of this expedition, and it is my job to open up this port as a trade city with Carthage. There is a problem, however... we have many enemies. There are the Isrealites, who were reported leaving Jerusalem about two weeks ago. Keep in mind that that city is about a two-week camel ride from here. Their warriors will be attacking any minute now, which is why your neighbors are building walls. The Turks are a constant threat, due to their utter hatred of us. However, they are economically weak right now, and as such, their troops are not well-equipped. Then, here are... the PELOPPONESE... their triemes seek to destroy our harbor and our trade with Carthage! You must help us! I need you to build a storage pit so that we can store more wood and gold. I have no maps yet, but here is what I know: the Israelites are coming from the south, which is defended by mountains. However, there is a pass which we must defend. The Turks will arrive from the north, so we need to strengthen our northern wall. The PELOPPONESE will arrive from the west, and our only defense will be a large navy. Now, almighty Xerxes is quite generous, and he will send us a shipment of Immortals, whic will arrive in 4 days. However, we need to secure a trade route to Carthage!
What will we do first?
A. Strengthen Northern Wall
B. Set up Towers and wall in mountain pass
C. Start building a navy
