A Glimpse Into The Future...
« on: December 05, 2009, 12:03:19 pm »
One day, a young Pentekonterus fell asleep in a field and heard a voice. The voice said this:
"I see that you have been through much these past few months. But do not worry. There is a bright future ahead for you and your kind. In three days, one who carries a pointed stick will find you in the mountains, and teach you his methods. When he arrives, do not be afraid, for there is much in store for you. What you are about to see will happen a million generations from now, and it will all be because of you." The Pentekonterus did not understand these words, but began to dream...

As the dream shifted into view, a large city appeared. Standing in the city square was a young Pentekonterus named Vixur. He was surrounded by several dozen attendants, bodyguards, and other assorted civil servants. He was the prince, and he was on a tour of the kingdom he would soon inherit. His father, Vikuth, was growing old. In this, their Nation of Kings, citizens lived in great happiness, and they had the royal family to thank for it. You see, the royal family has been descended, over a million generations, from Girruth himself. This, they believed, placed them abouve everyone else. Living under their rule was like living under a shady umbrella, resulting in a golden age. Trouble did brew outside, however. On their continent alone, there were two other nations, the Nation of Flames and the Swamp Nation, that made war on them. Also, there were those darned uncrushable tribes in the grasslands. How they had escaped destruction after so many wars was beyond anyone. This was not the concern here, however. The concern right now was that the prince complete his tour in time for the Naval Festival. This festival celebrates the day in winter almost 700 years before that their ancestors finally conquered their old enemy-the sea-and set out to sail across the globe. It was a time of gift-giving, dancing, feasting, and the time when most marriages were held.

((I would like to join this RP, BUT maybe... just maybe you should fast forward the dream to point where there just about to make it into space and start forming a nation... and maybe... maybe said dream should become a nightmare... or a warning... of a certain umm.... galatic A-holes invading... it would be even more interesting that when it DOES happen *when its not a dream* the Pentekonterus are infact prepared... *wink wink nudge nudge?* but again thats just an idea, I am just trying to figure out how I should join this RP, if you have a plan though *cause I am shure you do* please tell me I don't want to look like I am trying to hijack your RP*...))

((In all reality, it IS a warning... but this is already at this point, so no need to fast-forward.))

BIC: The prince noticed that day's front-page headline in the newspaper; the royal family kept as up-to-date as anyone else; and it read, "Local Nutjob Accidentally Builds Space Probe!" This, thought the prince, was interesting.

In the darkness of space there where many different alien species, with thousands of different cultures, ideologies, temperaments, and personalities. Many where peacefull, friendly, welcoming to those close to reaching the greatest of goal that was space...

others.... not so much...

there the ruthless, ambitious, and opportunistic races that really just do not care much of the moral and ethics that sometimes guide other races, some go as far as to exterminate or enslave any pre-interstellar race they could find, and this race right here was one of them... the Core Combine fleet had been looking for planets to expand its evergrowing empire into, wheather it was inhabited or not was irrelevant, uninhabited words yielded resources, inhabited ones yielded slaves AND resources. The fleet its self was a moderately sized one, containing the general swarm of frigates and destroyers that accompanied it, the three most noticeable craft however where the two carriers and the assault carrier, the assault carrier was one of the newest ship classes to join the Core Combines arsenal, at first glance it looked simply like a larger carrier with it being 35 kilometers, however it was also better armed than the normal carrier, truly the assault carrier had been designed to act as a command ship for the Combines fleets.

Inside the largest ship the interior was dark, it was always dark, the Core where never much for giving their ships much lighting inside as it was not very necessary, on the bridge a rather large gray skinned slug like creature with three eye stalks layed on a flat throne like seat that seem to float in midair a bit away from him on the side stood a large cylindrical tank of water, the Skrall's advising Gorak unit. After incident 367 (The Riether/Core Combine conflict) the Skrall the TRUE leaders of the combine seemed to have had enough of ruling from the shadows and took it upon themselves to expand their empire, Ragaran the slug who was in charge of the operation had been monitoring some communications that seemed to be intercepted from a pre-interstellar civilization, the hive network that ran through the fleet began to buzz with activity due to the news...

//Minor radio transmissions detected... course of action lord?// the Skrall was quick to respond...
//Deploy probe... begin planetary analysis... proceed with analysis of sentients... analyse all biological and technological data... course of action will be decided upon analysis completion.// Due to multiple bionic and cybernetic enhancements the Skrall's voice almost sounded half like a machines (think kinda like how the grox sound only a bit deeper in tone)
//Gonorak probe deployed analysis will begin shortly.//

The squid like creature soon approached the planet, intending to see wheather the system was suitable prey...

Little did the voices above know that down below, the dominant species was split in two. While sailing arond the world had been a pasttime for centuries, never did anyone think to explore the "Old Continent." It was said that a demon lived there, able to corrupt or destroy all who went within reach. Most decided to avoid these lands, but those who shipwrecked there were never heard from again. As the prince toured the city, he did not care about this, but rather about where to find his luncheon. He had it at a small bistro that specialized in grilled Ukuril. The Ukuril are an herbivorus species that the Pentekonterus have hunted since before their sapience. There are over 7,000 ways to cook it by the method of frying alone. To the prince, the meal was astisfactory, which was good for the chef. If it were not, he may have been beheaded, depending on the king's mood. Meanwhile, out at sea, an old sailor named Drukl saw a strange shape in the clouds and sensed that somethng was wrong.

//Probe has arrived at destination... beginning scan...//
//Analysing... analysing...//
//Well?!// the Skrall warmonger was obviously becoming impatient...
//Scanning complete... bringing up data files...//

The Skrall personal HUD unit which was made possible through the cybernetics in his eye stalks allowed him to see the information through his own eyes without the need of even a hologram... the data soon displayed practically giving him an alien sheet on any obvious information the probe could easily discern, he was not very concerned with their culture as far as Ragaran was concerned they where just another race to enslave nothing more...

//Sentients Detected!... Designation: Pentekonterus//
//Technological level: Global level, planetary mass mostly dominated...//
//Bringing up Biological analysis......//
//Skrallification Compatibility: Compatible...//
//Beginning planetary analysis...//
//Surface scans show adequate resources for colonies... population also sufficient for bio-factory construction...//
//Intercepting radio transmissions... scans show civilization is currently divided...//
The Skrall lord did not bat any concern over this, the fact that the sentients where divided basically meant they would be easier to conquer.
//Course of action lord Ragaran?//
//Planet is suitable for expansion procedures... launch terraforming spore pods... launch exterminator tripod units and invader pods... proceed with maximum extermination procedures for all military targets... proceed with subjugation procedures for all civilian areas... proceed with Skrallification procedures after subjugation procedures are completed...//
//Core Combine fleet in battle formation... execute expansion procedures...//

And so they did... the entire Core Combine fleet proceeded to head towards the homeworld of the Pentekonterus and they had only one thing on their mind: conquest...

The Core Combine fleet soon appeared over the Pentekonterus homeworld and was already in battle formation, they had the green light for an invasion, the carriers opened up their four way beaks, allowing an uncountable number of fighters out, and in compartments under them groups of terraforming spore pods, exterminator tripods, and invader pods where launched, ALL heading towards the Pentekonterus homeworld... most specifically any military targets capable of interfering with subjugation or Skrallification procedures... soon after they launched there was only one way to describe the areas that where being attacked by them...

It was if the sky suddenly rained fire...

The first wave would concentrate on exterminating all military targets, as well as putting fear into the general populace the second waves job was to begin subjugation procedures, as well facilitate Skrallification procedures...

Drukl knew what the Old Continent meant. He knew thatthere was no civilization there. And the proof was this: only those Pentekonterus living on the New Continent had the gift of sapience. None of them knew that their brethren an ocean away still lived as animals, as they all had before the superplume. But when he saw the invading forces, he knew that this continent was his only chance.
"First Mate Dilf!"
"Aye!"
"Set a course for the Old Continent!"
"But...Captain!"
"I said, DO IT!"
"... aye,aye, captain!"
And so it was. Drukl and his 16 crewmates were headed for what may haeve been the only escape. But the prince, back in the city, was not so lucky. He heard a great whirring noise, then looked up in shock as the shadows in the sky blotted out the light of Kaivik. The king quickly recieved reports of several attacks, and immediately dispatched the army. However, the tribes of the plains put up an even better fight. It was a show of defiance, or at least, or at least of stubbornness.

You see, the royal family has been descended, over a million generations, from Girruth himself.
((I really hope that you don't mean that literally, because even if they mate at the age of 10 that means 10 million years, and recorded human history has been around for only five thousand years. Humans themselves haven't even been around for a million.))

((Last question... this is a dream right? as in what might happen? or what is going to happen? because.... think.. I don't see a planetbound species able to take on a technologically advanced empire eternally without outside help.... and are we sure one continent on a planet will be able to hide them?))

Armies where launched against the Core Combines armies, this was expected, sentients always resisted even though it was futile. Still the Core Combine was always prepared for war, the tribes were giving them minor trouble, mainly because there where alot of them, but the Core had numbers and technology on their side they would not be able to hold out forever... the cities radios and communications systems where easily hacked as the alien invaders had a message for the Pentekonterus...

Every single T.V, radio, headphone, ipod (or the Pentekonterus equivalent of an ipod...) began to broadcasts an order to surrender from the alien race the message played out once then looped on practically every channel... given by the alien warlord Ragaran himself...

//All sentients of the planet you call Kaivik will surrender all holdings to us... you are now under Skrall and by extension Core Combine rule... you will surrender or we will proceed with MAXIMUM extermination procedures to all sentients... you will obey all orders WITHOUT QUESTION! you will proceed to the nearest landing sight to be sent into orbit and Skrallified... the consequence of not following orders will be extermination...//

To put it simply, the Core Combine even though it was still fighting the Pentekonterus resistance was already demanding a surrender, in reality, extermination was an unlikely action the Core would take, mainly because more slaves where always good, Ragaran had already made it a point to call in some slaver ships so that they may begin converting the populace once they where subjugated... and on all continents (with a smaller presence on the lost one) the status was the same the Core Combines armies where gaining ground, and no mercy was shown against the Pentekonterus resistance...

Warning - while you were typing a new reply has been posted. You may wish to review your post.

This looks like a job for...


launch exterminator tripod units and invader pods...

((Dear lord, not ANOTHER rip-off of The War of the Worlds. This has been done countless times, and every time, it's called a homage. H. G. Wells would not be amused. They don't even NEED tripods or pods! This isn't a small-scale, limited-resource mission far from home! THEY CAN JUST USE THEIR SPACESHIPS. THEIR SPACESHIPS ARE EQUIPPED WITH GIGANTIC GUNS. IF THEY ARE SO BENT ON EXTERMINATION, WHY NOT JUST INITIATE AN ORBITAL BOMBARDMENT OPERATION?))

One day, a young Pentekonterus fell asleep in a field and heard a voice. The voice said this:
"...What you are about to see will happen a million generations from now, and it will all be because of you."

((A million freaking generations? Okay, what UFO King said. Here's some human-time perspective: Difference in time between flight of first heavier-than-air aircraft and first landing on a celestial body: 65 years.))

Armies where launched against the Core Combines armies, this was expected, sentients always resisted even though it was futile. Still the Core Combine was always prepared for war, the tribes were giving them minor trouble, mainly because there where alot of them, but the Core had numbers and technology on their side they would not be able to hold out forever... the cities radios and communications systems where easily hacked as the alien invaders had a message for the Pentekonterus...

((How did they learn the Pentekonterus language so quickly? A universal translation MIGHT be achieved via mass telepathy, but what you are talking about is RADIO. Fricking radio. And you implied that they're broadcasting in Skrall, so how do the Pentekonterus know what the hell they're saying?! That's like in Armageddon, where meteors make the atmosphere catch on fire: it's bone-stick-stone ignorant!))

First of all they are not bent on extermination, they want to enslave them, second of all, a loud rant is not required, third of all no one has ONCE had a problem with me using tripods.

the generations thing was likely a wording error, nothing to get so fussed up about... calm down man!

and the language....for all we know they might still be translating it, and for all we know the pentekonterus don't even understand it... I have seen a bunch of first contact rps where the language exchange is almost instant... plus they where studying their planet for a bit so they may have a basic grip on their language...

[[Edit]]- another thing... they are perfectly capable of burning this planet to a crisp if they wanted to... they just don't want to, they want slaves not blood... (well maybe just a bit ot blood)
