The Diplomacy Thread
« on: April 23, 2006, 11:15:45 am »
This is a thread for all messages, exchanges and similar between Alliances. (i think it belongs here because its to do with the Alliance threads, all hail the Mods)

Please Try to keep this free of pointless insulting and recruiting. Those belong in The Alliance threads. Do not discuss proposed deals in here, as that will cause alot of confusion.



Right Now, O.T.H.E.R holds out its hand in Friendship to CAB, and will trade anything save technology or weoponry. We ask that Missionaries from religions of the O.T.H.E.Rs be allowed passage in CAB systems, for the same privelage.We suggest that you adopt The O.T.H.E.Rs way of dealing with religion.  We will not support, nor seek to damage CAB.

Also, I believe we should try to cultivate a third Alliance, to make things more "interesting".

Well unnecessary wars are quite annoying so that's a good thing.

Would you mind sharing with us about this Coporation, its believes, targets, rules and red lines?

Unless of course... youre really curious. In which case you should PM the Sector President of the Halcyon Corporation (me). Or one of the two Sector Vice Presidents (Daxx and gec05). You just have to ask yourself: how curious am I? 

(Curiosity killed the Biocat  :D)

Keep idle threats out of here. The Auyuelcliads have no concpet of fear.

The O.T.H.E.R Situation is Volatile.
Would the Oifan-Umtag be kind enough to await another meeting, at a later date? The Auyuelcliads offer thier sincerest apologies.

Sorry for the delay, and as such, I will be brief:

Right Now, O.T.H.E.R holds out its hand in Friendship to CAB, and will trade anything save technology or weoponry. We ask that Missionaries from religions of the O.T.H.E.Rs be allowed passage in CAB systems, for the same privelage.We suggest that you adopt The O.T.H.E.Rs way of dealing with religion. We will not support, nor seek to damage CAB.

Trade is fair, we would not ask you to trade more than your willing. As for missionaries, it is not up for me to decide, it is entirely up to each individual system whether or not to allow missionaries. Missionaries within the C.A.B. are free to travel among themselves, outsider need permission.

Our way of dealing with religion: All members a free to believe what they want. Period.

What if they believe in the bloody slaughter of everyone?

Worse still, what if they believe the Halcyon corporation is somehow bad for its employees and the galaxy? Do you not have a way to punish such treason?

If that's their religion, that's fine, as long as it's only themselves they slaughter.

Halcyon is not apart of this alliance, therefore it is not treason in the C.A.B. eyes for one to believe that.

Emergency transmision from: Wexxian government. To: All who stand against the Halcyon Corporation.

Yesterday the Wexxians where contacted by the VIS´s V-Men, they where in possession of the VIS leader´s memory hardware. After the Halcyon Corporation took the VIS homeworld they deactivated their leader (a big computer) and replaced him with an infected VIS who is now the Sector president. However, the V-Men were not infiltrated by Halcyon and downloaded the Leader. They delivered the Leader to the Wexxians, knowing that they had expertise in transferring programmes between hardware.

A few moments ago the VIS computer was successfully transfered to a Wexxian datamat and told the present Wexxians that the Halcyon corporation uses behavior altering parasites to pave the way for their takeover of planets and that the Corporation itself recruits new members by brainwashing and propaganda.

The Wexxians believes serious news must be spread. countermeasures must be taken ageinst the parasite and all unaffected races must meet and agree on a way to unite and defeat the Halcyon Coporation

The Wexxians call upon all who can, to unite and face this new threat.

//It has just ome to our attention that the Wexxians have been spreading treacherous slander regarding our beloved corporation. Are you seriously going to listen to these robots or their so called 'V-Man' allies. Analysis of ViS records reveals that no such organisation existed or exists within the ViS society.

I will also take this oppertunity to tell all Halcyon employees in this sector that a security lockdown is effective immediately. No employees are to leave planets and all spacecraft are to report to base stations. Contact with non-employees is stricktly forbidden//

Cold Wars are fun, Comrades!
But originally it was a "Cold War" between CAB and O.T.H.E.R. There is also The Wexxians vs Halycon, and whatever support tye can gather. Most of the Cold War was fought in minor wars in other countries, with lots of spying and threatening people with Nukes.

The Icthians and the Halcyon corporation would like to request Kaldri assistance against those who have committed and would seek to commit further genocide. As a civilised species, surely you respect that we have the right to retrieve our people without being threatened. Many Icthians are already dead, this should be enough grounds to justify full scale war but the Halcyon Corporation have decided in their wisdom that warfare hurts profits.

Please protect our people!

need the Caarnth remind the Halycon coporation that its has been proven that the toxin only works on hosts of a certain mind altering parasite, We have allowed the Halycon coporation to evacuate all non-Caarnth employees and have even allowed a small security force to accompany the evacuation shuttles

The royal council of defense has considered this matter, and has agreed that this is the best to do. We will send a fleet led by out best Fleet Admiral, Helokir Mankar, to help you evacuate. Send me coordinates and more information through an encrypted transmission (PM)

We will not allow further intrusions by the puppets of the Halycon coporation, if you want to enter our sector a small portion of your crew must be subjected to intense non-invasive microbial parasite scan, you must also not interfere in the release of the toxin if the cheif research faculty deems in necessary.

ha! you may want to stop straining at your master leash before he pulls you back, I'm sure the Halycon coporation does not wish for every employee in the Caarnth sector to be wiped out because of your threats, we have already struck a deal with your master. The Caarnth are a peacable race, but we will use the toxin without a second thought if we beleive that our race is in danger.

I refer you to the OTHER post, the so-called act of genocide was actually a desperate attempt to remove the taint of the Halycon parasite from our sector our toxin only works against host of the parasite, I would politely suggest you withdraw your ships and secure your own sector, there may be a violent conflict soon, and the question you should ask yourself is which side would you rather be on?

Any need for an Oifan-Umtag transmission interuption team? (to intercept any foreign tramsmissions, and translate/decode if necessary) If so the Oifan-Umtag will send a single Frigate Interceptor, which have highly advanced communication interception and jamming equipment, but can be used in combat if necessary.

-On the Kaldri capital planet Zealet. Inside the royal citadel-

*Helokir Mankar rises from his char and looks around on the other RCED councillors*

"Gentlemen. This situation seems to be a bit complicated. A lot of nations has united against the Halycon. We barely know anything about the Halycon, but my contacts say that they have had a troublesome past. What do you suggest?"

*Looks around and waits for a reply, but noone answers.* "Hmpf.. This is how it looks right now"

*He opens a small chest and picks up a small black gem. He places it in the middle of the round table, and presses a button, Suddenly a hologram shoots up*

"There are multiple ships in this system *Points into the hologram, and makes it zoom*. The reason is, as far as I know, something about a parasite.*

*A hooded figure starts to talk* "Parasites... That doesn't sound too good. I order the fleet to stay away from that system. Do not let anything un-authorized come into the Empire. Understood, Admiral?"

*Helokir smiles* "As you wish, my lord"

*The hooded figure starts talking again* "I don't want anyone to mention why we have banned all access. It is best to be kept as a secret. Council dismissed"

Stupid little wars. Every time a new creature turns up they have to be embroiled in a war against 'the ultimate evil' or 'an ancient enemy' or 'brain eating parasite hordes from planet Zod!!!'. If it didnt infringe on their "creative property" I'd just say the ViS destroy their puny planet to stop the conflict spreading... either that or turn up in one small ship and systematically decimate the enemy forces, make some smug remarks and leave the weak backward aliens to stew in their own primitive folly.

We are currently in the middle of an election to see who will speak for us. Until then nothing that is said can be put in gump (a rock on the Forthi homeworld, "stone").

I tried to get involved in the Halcyon war and was promptly ignored due to my lack of an entire fleet of "UBERN00KYOUDEAD CLASS BATTLESHIPS" who "WARP IN EN MASSE" and "WIPE OUT THE ENEMY FLEET"

Darn my politeness and small fleet of scouts!

So now I just assume each of my races is powerful enough to crush any evil NPC race that piss them off, and KROGOTH, DEVOURER OF PLANETS  is too concerned fighting everyone else to attempt to bother my fellows. Mmm, neutrality.

That's not true. Whilst a few people did try to god-mod, we even had a thread with relative strength of ships and similar, so everyone had equal forces to a certain extent.

You can join in Xarionis, although Squillisks and Auyuelcliads aren't the closest of friends.

Well, that is true. The Squillisk are neutral just because I don't want to have to get caught up in a war that any alliance I join suddenly decides to go to if I think the premise is stupid.
