graid introduction (rp type thing)
« on: December 20, 2009, 02:07:36 am »
intro
four explorations caravels of the graidient senatorial were deployed to search the stars for habitable worlds. with the graid's low requirements to survive, this was easily accomplished by three of the crafts, within the (relatively) short period of 219 standard years. however, one ship had more difficulties.

the crew of The Efficient Cause had heard of its sister vessels's exploits. captain of the ship, lesser Magistrate Nauphuskeh (longer name= more respect) was distraught upon this news. they had not been equipped for a return journey; it was decided they would gather the necessary resources on the planet they colonized. even if they could turn back, the failure would be a mark of shame.

"if I could just find something out here..." then, an idea struck him. so outlandish, he at first was discouraged to suggest it.

" Dehsa" he called to his communication servant. "ready the message relay"
"at once sir" Dehsa replied "what shall we tell the senatorial?"
"its not them I want you to send it too" the magistrate said "send out a basic signal...in every direction"

The Graid sent their signal into space.... and something had indeed listened, something had heard them, though they may not like exactly what it was, The signal was not detected by the entire Core Combine invasion fleet, but it did get the attention of one ship, who reported it to the others and was then sent to investigate, two battleships would be enough two investigate such a signal... after a few minutes of the Graid broadcasting their signal a distortion in space appeared and out of it appeared two strange looking vessels that looked like large grey armored cuddlefish, Core Combine battleships.

On one of the battle ships a minor Skrall commander named Vokonar was aboard one of the battleships, the ship did not look very well armed, easy pickings though instead of outright destroying it, boarding it would be more profitable then they could figure out where it came from, giving them the location of a new world to invade and a new race to enslave.

The Graid soon where receiving a strange alien signal though it was broadcasting in an alien language making it incomprehensible.

((Darn this is possibly one of the shortest posts I have ever typed....))

"magistrate. we have a communication. I do not understand it. it is not of us" exclaimed the clearly unsettled communicator

"what do you mean of that?" said a puzzled Nauph.

"look out the viewport"

he peered out. a large piece of metal. but then he looked closer.

"its another craft! within the offworld(their name for space)!"

he paused to look more carefully.

"and it is approaching our broadside..."

(wow. almost all dialogue. that shouldnt happen long)

Unbeknown to the two parties, another observer has taken notice of the nondescript signal.



"Hey, Taluim, I think I'm picking something up.", Sari said to his co-pilot. "Strange. There isn't supposed to be any traffic going through this part of space..."

"Open a line to HQ.", Taluim replied. "Let's check it out."



//HQ this is Tesa-12 reporting a signal originating from area 15-23-67.

Requesting back-up, we are on our way to investigate, over.//

//Tesa-12 this is HQ, sending Tesa-15 and Tesa-2 to your location, over.//

//Roger that.//



Unknown to Taluim and Sari, they were about to face their largest challenge since joining the GPA-Attachment of the 125th Luzonian Fighter Wing.

The transmission simply kept repeating to the Graid ship and each time it was said the tone seemed to get more hostile and maybe frustrated, and the fact that those to battle ships where turning most of their weapons towards the Graid ship as well as powering them up pretty much meant that these guys where NOT here to have tea and crumpets Vokonar was REALLY losing patience... not like he had much from the start.

though the message was still incomprehensible to the Graid it could basically be translated as such...

//Unknown vessel, power down your systems and prepare to be boarded Skrallification and interrogation procedures will proceed shortly// It was said in a harsh staccato tone (Kinda like if you put a Dalek and a Grox together) that hardly said "Hey we want to be friends mind letting us in?"

The battleships where moving closer and closer to the Efficient Cause and if they got aboard that ship, no Graid would be spared they would either be killed or Skrallified, or have their brain probed for information THEN Skrallified or killed, the whole reason they where even making the effort to board the ship was to once again get the information from the Graids data files as to where the ship came from and with that data locate a new planet or planets to expand to, such was the Skrall instinct to do so.

"The signal's getting stronger and stronger.", Sari said. "We're on the right track."

"Good.", Taluim replied. "Found anything solid yet?"

Sari looked at his scanners and still saw no signs of any spacecraft.

"None so far...", he said while flipping through several sensor readings. His scanning was interrupted, however, when he saw two small spacecraft flash on the very edge of their variable armor's scanner readouts.



//Tesa-12 this is Tesa-2 redirected to area 15-23-67 as ordered. Do you copy?//



It was the reinforcements Taluim requested from HQ.

Soon after, another variable armor joined the pair and the three made their way to intercept the signal.

"magistrate, the craft will soon be where we are. is it going to ram us?"

"no... I don't thing so" said Nauph, slowly.

"but I am uneasy. these signals are disturbing. see too it the guardians are on full alert. and open the  hanger. if this turns volatile, I would rather 'it' go through the entrance."

the boarding area is a small hanger, capable of letting in a five man craft, at best.

the ships guardians, half a dozen 15 foot (about 5 meters?) tall graidient elite, trained in peacekeeping should a graid go irrational, are well honed warriors. with personal shields, foot-long superheated blades, they are a formidable foe amongs graid.  

the gaurds equip their facemasks, and head to the entryway.

Unfortunately the Graid had somewhat miscalculated, they where dead wrong in their expectancy for the Core Combine to just waltz in through their hanger with a shuttle... the Core Combine was not a really a "waltz through the door type" they where more like a "go around the door and break down the wall type" the ships did not bother to release a shuttle to board the hanger, they where going to just flat out board it using a battle ship.

The first battle ship turned some of its weaponry towards the Graid ship, most specifically the engines, basically to make sure the Graid did not try to escape once they realized what was going on, once the engines where targeted, Vokonar gave the order to fire, a combination of heatray burst, and gravity missiles hit the side of the Graid ship, but most of them targeted the engines, the battleship surprisingly did not use its railguns.

The second battleship was closing in on the other side of the Graid ship, intending to use its Dorvans to drill through its hole.

/-----------------------------/

Dorvan- A wormlike creature designed by the Core Combine that lives inside certain cavities of all ships, usually frigates, it is used to pierce the hull of an enemy ship then allow boarding parties to enter.

"they mean to destroy us? what kind of challenger would do such a heinous move?"

"few, and far between , in my experience. but we must retaliate."

" ready our armaments"(environmental suits) and release the galling (a fuel. gaseous substance that disintigrates the softer bits of creatures. your guys cant know this, btw) ; just let it through our entire craft"

"Taluim!", Sari spat as he almost jumped off his seat. "We're getting a very powerful signal! And it's coming from the exact same location!"

Sensors went wild as the energy signal generated by the weapons reached the ship's sensors, which were currently calibrated to detect extremely weak signals.

"Everyone scramble!", Taluim yelled through the communicator as he swiveled his craft away from his current position, anticipating the chance that they might be the ones being targeted by the hypothetical weapon strike.



//Tesa-2, Tesa-15, what's your status?!//

//Tesa-12, this is Tesa-2, damage negative.//

//Tesa-12, this is Tesa-15, damage negative.//

"Good.", Taluim slighted as he kept himself vigilant.

The attack on them was thankfully a false alarm. However, moments later, he heard another message from one of the other fighters, and it was very far from being pretty.

//Tesa-12, this is Tesa-15 reporting one, no, TWO vessels at 1'o'clock! Medium sized and ARMED! I repeat, ARMED, over!//

Taluim let off a big sigh as he contacted HQ.

"We're gonna need more back-up."



//HQ, this is Tesa-12 detecting two medium vessels in area 15-23-67! Both are armed and attacking an unidentified target!

Requesting further back-up!

I repeat! Requesting further back-up!//



"Sari, ready the directional communicator.", Taluim said to his copilot. "Well, here goes nothing..."



Attention unidentified vessels! This is the 242nd Galactic Protection Agency Patrol Wing!

Requesting clarification on your current situation!

Noncompliance will result in physical intervention!

Vokonar did not give a very noticeable outward responce from his gravity throne, a Skrall never did give to much of an emotional responce, the only noticeable emotions the Skrall possessed or at least acted upon was pride and or hate and as for the responce Vokonar did not even bother to draft one as far as he was concerned he had nothing to say and certainly no reason to explain himself to some meddlesome "lesser creature"

The first battleship continued towards the Graid ship, preparing to board it as planned the second one had disengaged and was now heading towards the Luzonian fighters, it soon put its self between them and the Graid ship but still kept its distance, but something else was coming out... multiple circular hanger ports opened up on the battleship, unleashing a small swarm of Core Combine fighters, the lobster like craft then charged the fighters with frightening speed and agility and engaged them, either trying to tear them up with laser fire or even actually going in melee style.

On the Graid's ships, several bangs could be heard as the Dorvans began to cling on to the ship, then something that sounded like a combination of drilling and chewing as the Dorvans dug through the ships hull could be heard.... and then they where in... the Core Combine however did not expect the inside of the Graid ship to be practicly acidic due to the galling the Graid had released, however luckily for them, both slaves and soldiers where armed with bionic armor which acted as something of an environmental suit its self, of course some the lesser armored slaves and soldiers insides practically melted a good amount of them where protected due to the bionic armor, but even then their was a great stinging sensation that would drive a man insane, however that was fixed by the slaves using their Skallvark devices and shutting down their pain receptors. Once the situation was ascertained the slaves and soldiers began to move throughout the ship any Graid they found they either subdued with sedatives, or similar chemicals or simply killed when they where too tough, the larger Graid guardians where a challenge, however the Core Combine had enslaved many different races all in different shapes forms and sizes, among the groups of soldiers and slaves some of them where actually quite large, matching the guardians size and strength.

the graid could not believe it. strange organisms, crawling about, killing their people. this could not do.

nauph emerged "hold your directive. I am the magistrate of this ship. you have committed a crime against nature, and shall be judged accordingly. lacking a proper consulate, this duty falls to me. I decree, you must be forcibly removed."

nauph cracked his claw together, opening it to reveal a special tool. the weapon moved like cable. he hooked it to the nearest enemies face equivalent, where it pierced into it with half a doezen hooks. then he pulled back, ripping it's head off. he drew his cable back, then repeated with the next closest hostile

//Scramble!//

The three Luzonian fighters managed to evade the Combine's preliminary assault by the breath of a hair. Taluim's two accompanying units swiftly gave back the favor, transforming into their Luzonian forms and engaged several fighters, taking a couple down with their blades.

However, Taluim soon realized that this battle was currently not in their favor. They needed reinforcements if they were ever going to engage such vast numbers, and a couple of battleships to boot.

He rallies together the three variable armors in an attempt to engage the Combine fighters, but only when they were separated from the main swarm. As much as he hated it, he could only stall them for now.

But just as Taluim was about to unleash a volley of plasma upon a couple of bogeys, Sari caught a whiff of hope in the form of a very familiar voice message.

"Taluim!", Sari said as he opened a new comms lobby. "They're here!"



//Tesa-12, this is Tesa-3, the cavalry has arrived, over.//



"Finally...", Taluim sighed in relief.



The 242nd Galactic Protection Agency Patrol Wing.

A combined force made up of several stellar naval groups from the GPA's member civilizations.

Though a majorly composed of Luzonian variable armors, the fifty or so strong wing does contain several Orealyianis VA-1-022s, along with a couple of Marakiri fighters and Chivi power armors.

With their arrival, the tide finally turned. Though, not completely.

It clearly still wasn't enough to take out an entire battleship. Let alone two.



Meanwhile...

As the battle raged on, Sari caught glimpse of a smaller, unidentified craft which seemed to have been infiltrated by one of the two Core battleships.

"Taluim, I think I found the source of the signal!", Sari said. "Over there!", he added as he pointed out the location of The Efficient Cause.

"Okay!", Taluim said as their armor switched to Luzonian form to cut down a twelve o'clock bogey before switching back into a fighter. "We're heading out!"



//HQ, this is Tesa-12 we are currently engaging hostiles! I repeat! We are currently engaging hostiles!

Hostiles are more capable than previously expected! Requesting heavy back-up on our location, now!

We've also detected one, smaller craft of as of yet neutral status! Do you copy? Over!//

//Roger that. We are redirecting OMS Kitona, Gasara and Kazarata to your location.

ETA in three minutes, they're heading there as fast as they can.

Do you copy? Over.//

//Roger.//



"Sit tight! We're going to have to hold these guys off a little longer..."

//Listen, everyone!

Reinforcements are on their way! We just have to hold them off a little longer!

Tesa-2 to 20, follow me!

The rest of you, hold them off!//



Of all the days Tesa-1 could call in sick... He just had to pick this one...

//Engage enemy fighters... maximum extermination procedures//

The entire swarm of Combine fighters engaged the Luzonian reinforcements the usual strategy they used was to simply swarm them, attack from every direction like piranhas however they where no where near as threatening as the battleship, which was now heading towards them intending to take care of the pests by itsself. Vokanar also sent a message to the main invasion fleet that unknown creatures had been engaged, reinforcements would be at his call if he needed them but not right now, dealing with this did not require the movement of an entire fleet.

the large ship was soon in range and began to unleash most of its anti-fighter weaponry, heat rays, gravity missiles, plasma turrets and the like, it also occasionally unleashed a new wave of fighters to aid it when their numbers began to dwindle, whoever these creatures where Vokonar was going to make them regret ever interfering... On a last note though.... salvaging some of those strange transforming ships would be profitable.....

Inside the Graid ship the Core Combine soldiers and slaves where encountering a particularly tough Graid... so they did what they did whenever they encountered something particularly tough, they swarmed it , they soon surrounded him and attacked him with suicidal zeal from everywhere, from the front the left the right from behind and sometimes one would climb up to the ceiling and try to jump him from above surprisingly the weapons they used where primarily the chemicals used to subdue other creatures delivered via very large needles meaning their goal was to capture him not kill, though if it proved to difficult killing was always an option.

naugh went down slowly. toxins and chemicals would have difficulty getting to him, seeing as he didnt have blood coursing through his body. but eventualy, a smaller core soldier managed to peirce through his under-shell, straight into his body. he colapsed with a shudder. some of the graid still standing scrambled outside. their only escape was to get out of the ship. others couldnt leave. they had stood by their commrades for too long to watch them die. they took a front around their commander, and fought as one iron shell.



back at the bridge. the young communicator was panicking. they where dying. he finally calmed down enought to check the realay. another craft! and it was challanging the aggresive one! he got back to his terminal. their had to be something he could do. he sent a breif message:

help
