Very nice, it surprises me that they don't have advanced space flight but do have robots and plasma technology.

Because they havent ever focused on it (until now of course that you've invaded the planet.)  They just built up around their own planet, and ignored the attractive features space brought.

Military Command

During a battle, the military chain of command follows as below.  The typical chain of military command that most races use still applies, but the below is just a general look.

Cool droids Infernal. ;)

Too bad I'm very busy because of school.

Still, the Code of Honor and the Chain of Command gave me a great idea. ::) Great update. ;)

Technologic Variety

The below examples of ten of the most common advance technologies used by the Epoc:

Holographic Trans-Informational Orbs (Inforbs)

Inforbs are small devices that come in various forms.  One, a small ball that fits within the extremely small earholes of the Epoc, translates any language using a database that had been given to them by the Epoc.  The other fits within their palms, and glows depending on its use or awaiting message.  They can access any information and send any form of message through holograms held in their database.

Nano-manipulative Robots

In the form of miniature X-11s, these devices are able to carry out extreme tasks, be it wiring, killing diseases, or spying with the aid of being extremely small and invisible to the naked eye.

Regenerative Devices

Various forms of energy have been converted into tools, which release this energy, causing the healing of wounds, the repairing of materials, and the regeneration of plant materials via cell cloning.

Virtual Intelligence

With their super tech, the Epoc have managed to break many barriers, and have given their X-11s individual, random personalities.  The AI that controls them acts as an individual entity, willing to take commands but act in a personal manner. Over their life, they communicate, and gain vast amounts of knowledge.

High Tech Weaponry

The Epoc, as mentioned before, have used a plasmatic material in all their weapons.  They’ve fused this with various elements and forms of matter, augmenting extremely powerful weaponry.  Weapons are self charging, and require no outside bullets.  The plasma can mold itself into a flammable gaseous, liquid, or solid form depending on use.

The Art of Defense and Stealth

Keeping yourself alive is very important in the Epoc army.  Using “clouds” of electrons and various force fields, shields have been widely embraced by infantry and vehicles alike.  The fields are mostly impermeable, able to withstand most indirect attacks (unable to stop direct collision or melee) from bullets or energy weapons.

Cloaking is restricted to special troops, and costs a lot of energy.  For short periods of times, small portals, using the same system as their traveling devices,  absorb direct light, giving the impression of invisibility.  However, this is short lived, and easily noticed via infrared technology.

Wormhole Technology

Eyecons have aided enormously in this field.  The Epoc have developed a weapon, ranging from hand held devices, to large fleets that allow the instantaneous access between two points.  These portal guns allow the individual to travel between two points, using indirect wormholes, by either aiming, or entering coordinates.

These weapons also have the capability to develop anti gravity fields, like those of the X-11s, which allow the movement and picking up of objects normally to heavy or too awkward for the average Epoc.

Antimatter Energy

Besides nuclear energy, Antimatter generators allow the movement of the larger ships in the Epoc fleet.  They are virtually infinite sources of power, able to pull of the extreme tasks the Epocs perform.  They can also be found small scale, in weapons, tools, and some homes.

Explosives and Direct Energy Application

Boom? You like boom?  Well so do the Epoc.  They have put a great deal of energy into developing their huge weapon stock.  Small devices can deliver massive amounts of explosive power.  They also have developed beams of energy that shred straight through an object’s atomic level, thus, destroying them.

Space Weaponry and Other Technologies

By converting their weapons and shields, the Epoc have managed to equip their fighters and capital ships with large scale weapons, exponentially stronger than their smaller counterparts.  These weapons are highly dangerous, and very destructive to anyone who encounters them.

Besides military, the space phase brought with it new strives in medicine, home entertainment, and a betterment of life to all Epoc society.

I wonder where they got their Inforbs, antimatter engines, wormhole technology and some space weapons from... :-p

Well, theyve already got their plans for their own superships.  The gockets helped with that.

GDI Juggernauts!? :o :o :o

Great fleet weapons Infernal. ;)
Are their portal guns like the ones in TheOrangeBox:Portal? If so, that'd be so coooool! An Epoc can make two portals, one above the enemy and another in front of him. Then he can throw an X-11, barrel or grenade into the portal. :D The enemy won't know what hit it! ;D

Yes, I decided to copy the idea of a gravity gun mixed with a portal gun for them *shrug*

I was wondering where those big ships and large scale weapons systems might've come from...
Probably not a Goat, either.

Pre Space Phase Superweapons

The below list comprised of the five most common weapons, but not the only, that were used by Epoc during times of war.   They are highly destructive, and continue to be used due to their effectiveness.

Tactical Napalm and Direct Impact Explosive Strike

This form of attack is probably the most commonly used by Epocs.  A field commander or anyone of high rank running the battle has the ability to authorize a devastating strike.  Long pathways of Napalm are spread out by jets, causing up to a kilometer of burning, wreaking landscape.  Other than napalm, direct missile attacks are also possible.

Remote Torpi Release Cylinders

This is probably the most interesting weapon used by the Epoc.  These cylinders, spanning a few meters tall, contain millions of genetically modified, hungry Torpi (see Life on Capital Thread) with small packages of explosives attached to them.  As they are released, they hone onto any moving life, and attack them viciously.  If they aren’t able to kill them, then the incendiary devices attached to them will.

Automatic Hydro-atomic Leveling Protocol

This order to strike is rarely used, mostly due to its indiscriminate destructive force.  Specially designed jets drop a clustered payload of thousands of specially modified, miniature atomic weaponry, which delivers an extremely powerful force, but a low radiation.  The Epoc believe radiation as a form of murder to be cruel and prolonged.  This protocol is able to level cities, forests, and physiologic features.

Subsurface Force Generator

Probably the neatest Pre-space weapon, the SFG, in relative large numbers, is able to inflict massive damage.  By using subsonic and direct inertia waves, the SFGs can accurately cause and direct landslides, pits, schisms, volcanic activity, earthquakes, and even tsunamis.  While it may be considered cheap, it is almost always used to give the Epoc the upper hand.

Functional Guerilla Warfare

This form of warfare is the embodiment of the entire Epoc army.  The Epoc function under a Guerilla Warfare system, where there is nothing fair about war, and all is fair game.  They use this to their advantage, manipulating the environment around them to their advantage, as well as their enemies’ weaknesses.  X-11s climb in trees, caves, ditches, etc. so that they may assault stealthily an attack.  In this world, nothing is sacred, such; the Epoc Army itself is a superweapon.
