The Nauceans encountering the Shadows and promptly fighting each other because the Shadow wants to exterminate the worlds that the Nauceans are studying/protecting.

Ok, a little about their tech. Their weapons work by firing an energy blast that breaks the molecular bonds of anything it hits. This shreads armour and such as if it was nothing. The denser things are, the longer they take to shread.Plain and simple. Their leader, Kari'u'Sadow, is someone I want to describe, as he is just some figure mentioned in RP's. Here is his bio:

Name:Kari'u'Sadow.
Age:??? (Unknown)
Height:In suit:10' 7", out:1"
Weight:In Suit:450 lbs. Out:15 lbs.
Info:Kari'u'Sadow, or "King of Shadows" translated into english, is the crewl and tyrannical leader of the Shadow military. He answers to an unknown figure, cloaked in mystery. He wears a massive suit of cybernetic armour, the whole left hand of which is a mass of various weapons. He can use these to rip apart infantry, vehicles, pretty much anything he comes across(The guy's practicly a walking armoury!). His suit's other arm is strong enough to send a Photos flying with little effort. His suit is also armoured to withstand most weapon impacts, making him nearly indestructible.He is a cunning commander, and is not to be underestimated, no matter the circumstanses.

What kind of energy would that be? All I can think of is just a concentrated anti-gravity field.

essentially, yes. ok.....Their weaponry works on the thought that Gravitrons are real(they are a theory, aren't they?). They essentially fire focused Graviron bursts..

Man, you just gave me an idea! I'll be posting it soon.

Also, does Kari'u'Sadow get frustrated when someone points out how short he is? Might come in handy later on, when we need him in a dialogue.

Uh...yeah. I once planned a portion in an rp where he pins a Shadow trooper against the wall and shows him the inside of his gun barrels for making a joke about Kari's size under his breath. Sadly, RP died before I could....sighhh.

Anyway, I wonder what would happen if the Core Combine would happen to meet them...

There would be a big frickin' war, and I think the Core Combine would win, but with heavy losses.

That or they would stop fighting long enough to turn their hatred to the rest of the galaxy, THEN turn on eachother

essentially, yes. ok.....Their weaponry works on the thought that Gravitrons are real(they are a theory, aren't they?). They essentially fire focused Graviron bursts..

I can also see the Core Combine using those to, since they are also fans of gravity/anti-gravity weapons

30. All bumbling conjurers, clumsy squires, no-talent bards, and cowardly thieves in the land will be preemptively put to death. My foes will surely give up and abandon their quest if they have no source of comic relief.

A graviton is a force of gravity, not anti-gravity. What you need is some gravity field metal. It's a fictional metal that creates a gravity or anti-gravity field depending on how strong an electric current passing through it is and whether it's positive or negative. It is manufactured in huge quantities due to the tremendous demand for use in starships and other things. Although some applications are for peaceful purposes(like recycling by stripping matter down to atoms), a weapon could hypothetically be created by using the metal to create an anti-gravity field at a distance, thus disintegrating anything or anyone in its way. I think that such a weapon would yield horrific results, and would probably be banned from the galactic community. Think Dr. Manhattan, or the arc gun from District 9, or that psychic mutant lady in X-Men 3.

It's a good start, and sounds like something from a Gameboy Advance game. By the way, I strongly recommend not using that site. It's full of stupid and even offensive ads and also pop-up ads, meaning there are most definitely viruses lurking about waiting to infect your computer and corrupt your files.

Thanks.

Anyway, there are several ships the Shadow use:

Shatterer-class Juggernaut
Class: Juggernaut
Size: 1.4 Kilometers long, 0.5 kilometers in diameter
Powerplant:One Reactor
Engines: 4 Plasma Engines
FTL Device: Wormhole Generator, able to span between universes
Armament: 8 Gravitron Accelerators; 68 Gravitron Cannons; 180 point-defense Gravitron guns.
Picture:

Interceptor
Class:Frigate
Size: .7 Kilometers long, .4 Kilometers in diameter
Powerplant: One Reactor
Engines:3 Small Plasma Engines
FTL Device: Wormhole Generator, able to span between universes
Armament: 2 Gravitron Acellerators; 4 Gravitron Cannons; 20 point defense Gravitron guns.
Picture:

These are the most common used, but there are other classes which I will post soon.

Some people just aren't too good with names, alright? We had to have a cliched "evil" race at one point.
