Converting to the faith of the Shadow Emperor.

Well as mentioned before if you like to join Ęthirans you must also adopt their religion and philosophy but what dose that mean? Even if Shadow Emperor is one and only god for the Ęthirans it is a very flexible religion. You are not forces to go to Church every sunday. Also you do not have to abandon minor false god as long as you recognize that the Shadow Emperor is the one and only true god or divine power as the Ęthirans like to see it. You do not pray to the Shadow Emperor ether. Some say he even hates that. The Shadow Emperor only wants You to what is right which can be a hard concept to understand. That why Technomancers spend so mush time trying to predict the future. It is also believe that if you do something wrong then you will be punished for that. Not in the Afterlife (which they do not really believe in) but in this life. The Goal of the Shadow Emperor is generally said to be to Bring order to Chaos and create a infinite new more perfect pattern from the old. This is why unlike ViSĘthirans try to make things complex and then let the Shadow Emperor sort out what dose not work. (But the Ęthirans to have a some fascination toward the ViS even with the KiSS flaw  :D .) Even if is a very flexible system where Jew, Christans, Islams and Maybe even Hindus could live without making major changes to the religion it do have some very strict dogmas. A Buddhist would most likely be branded a hertic on site because they are trying to leave the Shadow Emperor realm. In fact anyone seeking Nihilist or Ahiallists would have a hard time as view like this works against the Shadow Emperor. Is believed that once you stuck in the Shadow Emperor realm that you will live their forever in one shape or the other so to believe anything else is not only heretical but stupid. The Conclave is the Emperors counsel. It was put in place to protech creation is self from it self destitution tendencies. Because of this the Conclave is have the final word in any matter. To go against the Conclave it the worst sin of all in short of not abandoning the Shadow Emperor. So when one pledge once allegiance to the Shadow Emperor one also accept the conclave as his guardians. In short. Do not play with fire like technology or something else that can upset the status quo and do as the Conclave Dictates and you should be fine.

Just ask if you got any questions as allways.

A short story about the early galactic wars. Somewhat compacted.

The Goshvoth war.

In the early years of the Galactic age the Empire was far from as powerfull as it is today but it quickly expanded. Many of the outer colonies where wounderfull places compared  Ęthyx star system and the Exiles often help new more open lords with their colonies. But this peacefull idyllic time would not last. As other older Alien species expanded their empires in reponces to this new Ęthiran golden age the room for expantion became smaller and smaller. Soon only plants with less then ideal environment where left and it did not take long before those planet run out to. But the populations of Ęthiran Empire was still growing and a enviable conflict was on the horizon. Several feudal lords started to attack the Ancient species know as the Goshvoth after the Goshvoth have denied to trade with them for food and more space which the Goshvoth. The more peacefull lord tried to stop them and start to negotiate a peace but neather the feudal lords nor the Goshvoth could except this. What made the conflict even worse was that all Ęthirans wear attacked even if they have never had anything to do with the conflict. Even the Exiles started to build up armies and try to help protect the more peacefull lords. Something that have never happend before. The Conclave declared this would be a total war on the Goshvoth and that those that did not join in where branded heretics. Natural all Lords join the battle and not even the more peacefull and liberal lord stated to attack Goshvoth. Hugh armies wear build. Nuclear weapons where stockpiled. And the best and brightest of their technomancers use the technomagic like never before to stop these danger. The motto became Exterminate or be Exterminated for only the fittest are the Shadow Emperors chosen people.

The battle of Star Sapphire

Naturally those that where hit the hardest where those closest to the front. And the Juiciest targets where of course the world of the more peacefull lord that have build their colonizes on the best world with the help of the exiles. One of these world was Star Sapphire (Name after the gem.) Star Sapphire was world with large oceans and known for is Great silver colored foresters. One of the earliest colonizes that gain a lot of technical helps from the Exiles it was also one of the most liberal worlds. It had allways bin the envy of other local lords. The Archqueen Newdawn of Star Sapphire was very tankfull for all the help she and hear family have gain form the Exiles. For several generation no had the colony prospered and the people have gain more and more liberties. Life was wounderfull compare to just what it have bin just a few generations earlier but this idyllic life would not last. When the war broke out Star Sapphire would become one of the world in the heart of the conflict. First it was only small raids from the Goshvoth. Then several invasion forces where sent. But Archqueen Newdawn her closest Technomancer Mage Purethought was able to rally her Knights and Technomancers and fight back the first invasions. the Goshvoth then abandon Star Sapphire and started to consentrate on the local star systems to Star Sapphire. Archqueen Newdawn quickly send aid to other lord and soon the Goshvoth could not ignore the power base Star Sapphire. Archqueen Newdawn tried the hardest to protect her allies but soon a the Goshvoth would strike back hoping to stop her once and for all. With a lighting stick the Goshvoth attack Star Sapphire with a army unlike anything seen before by Archqueen Newdawn. Massive orbital bombardment turn the earth to glass and city's to ruin. All the sliver forest burned and the great seas boiled. They say the screams for the dieing children where so loud that it could be heard in the nearest starsystems. (Poetically speaking of course .) The Knights and Knights had no chance vs the Goshvoth invasion forces when they landed to secure the planet and Archqueen Newdawn with  Mage Purethought made a last valiant stand at the Archqueen palace but could not prevail. The plant was lost or so it seemed. Because their was still hope. One of Mage Purethought apprentices still lived and he would rise like the phoenix form the ashes of the plant. His name was Archadept Alterreality. . Before the battle Mage Purethought ask all of his closest apprentices to leave before Star Sapphire but Archadept Alterreality had refused. So Mage Purethought ask him to at least stay at his subterren laboratory and take care of it. When Archadept Alterreality heard that both his old master and his queen where dead he was crushed decided to do something the Goshvoth. Trying to find a way to combat the Goshvoth Alterreality search the lab for anything that could help him. In Mage Purethought  laboratory archives Alterreality found a old holo tome with the title "The laws of life and death". In the book he found notes from he old master about how to resurrect the dead and controle the life process in living beings. It seem that his old master was able to acquire this holo tome and a other book form a mysteries alien race. Quickly read the notes from his old master and decipher the old tome did not take long before Alterreality started to do experiment. Withing just a few hours he meet with great success. Alterreality wondered: "Why did not my old master continue with his experiment when he was to close?" Armed with his new knowledge he tired to contact the survivors. It was soon apparent that he was the higherst ranking survivor and the few Ęthiran left seeking guidance quickly started to follow Alterreality every command. Sending scout to the surface Alterreality was inform about the piles of dead bodies and that most of the Goshvoth have started to move on to attack the rest of the Ęthiran Empire. Alterreality created several units dedicate to reanimate using the new chemicals and cybernetic implants he had learned. Soon a army of undead solders stood at his command. Even if the newly reanimate army was far from perfect being able to understand only simple command but it was enough to start the revolt. The solders welled up from the subterran caves swarming over the Goshvoth forces. the Goshvoth where so chock by the attack and was unable fought back the undead hoard. And the more that fell of the Goshvoth the more fresh bodies their where to reanimate. Soon the Goshvoth where on the run and Archadept Alterreality force where in total controle of Star Sapphire. But Alterreality did not stop their. No he continued to and toke the fight to the Goshvoth. Other lord joined up and soon Archadept Alterreality was Archmage Alterreality. One after one the Goshvoth world fall to Alterreality forces and soon their hole empire lay in ruin after massive attack of the Ęthiran Empire. The was was had ended and the Goshvoth where no more. Now the only thing that was left of the Goshvoth empire where stored in the libraries of the Technomancers and Conclave.


The Necromancer war.

Archmage Alterreality hoping to rebuild Star Sapphire after the war when back to his old home. But before the earlier war had start the local feudal lord which he had help was allready plotting his downfall. Jealous over his power and his new found knowledge. Seeing how Star Sapphire lay in ruins. The lord quickly reeducated their forces toward Archmage Alterreality. soon he started to lose on all fronts and it was only a matter of time before they would win. His undead army and loyal Knights and Technomancer could not hold them back. Feeling betrayed by his former allies he went to his old master laboratory. Then he rememberd the second holo tome metion in his master notes. Maybe it could hold the key? He order his men to stand their ground as long as possibly and soon a stalemate settled in. Archmage Alterreality knew it would not last for long. Maybe a few months up to a year if he was lucky. So he started to look for the holo tome in the archives. After weeks of searching for the  holo tome he finally found it. Well hidden in a secret compartment in the archives. The tome was titled "the gate to the stars" in some mysties Alien language. It seem to describe somekind of portal. Something smiler to a Jumpgate (which was still early in development at that time.) But it was far more advance then anything Alterreality have ever seen before. Yet it look like it would be possibly to build it with his current technology. Hoping it would be a way to some distance planet where he could take his people and hide for the other lords he started to build the portal. It toke a few months but it was finally compleated. he opened the stargate and the Alterreality  hole laboratory stated to shake. And then portal stated to stabilized and soon he was able to see the other side for the first time. It was a world unlike any world he had ever seen before. The exit of the gate seem to be on the top of a tower. He could see out of the windows of the tower the clouds and several otheir black metallic organic looking towers stretching miles up in the air. On the other side ther  was also a giant alien lifeform floating on air. It had long tentacles which several smaller creature climbed on. Is head and body look somewhat like that of a black widow spider. (Just so your humans out their can understand. Their are no Ęthiran black widows of course.) And on eather side back on is head body part the creature had two small wings. It had a two mandibles large around is mouth on the front of it head which their sometime shot out small electric charges in betwine.

The creature spoke with a echoing voice: "Ahh... You have finally open the portal... It was a long time ago initiate Shadowstar... I was afraid that i would never heard form you again. Maybe we could make a deal again?"

Archmage Alterreality answered: " I'm not initiate Shadowstar. The only one i have ever heard of name Shadowstar was Archmage Shadowstar who more then a 1000 years ago and was one of the first to travel betwine the stars. I'm Archmage Alterreality "

The strange Alien answered: "Hmm... You all look the same... But maybe we could make a deal then... I'm sure we have something that can be of use for you Archmage Alterreality... I could offer you power beyond you wildest dreams....."

Archmage Alterreality answered: "The only thing i need is a way to stop my enemies. I and my pealop have bin under attack from our former allies who betrayed us. And i need a way to stop them."

The strange Alien answered: "Ahh... We can help you with that... We can promise to defeat all you enemies... My forces stand ready to aid you right... Now..."

Archmage Alterreality answered skeptically: "But what do you gain out of this. Do you not ask anyhing in compensation?"

The strange Alien answered:  "Ooo... But we do gen something out of this... We hate betrayers... And we wish to punish them... For their betrayal... And we once swear... To protect the Stargate... Now... Is out time... To keep our promis...."

Archmage Alterreality answered: "Well i guess i do not have mush choices"

The strange Alien answered: "Good..."

Soon a armies of the stage alien creatures called Echin streamed forth from the gate. Black metallic organic looking machines and strange looking devices. Is was almost incredible that the large stargate could handle it all. Soon Some of the organic machens started to build new factories in the underground caves and at the bottom of the black seas of Star Sapphire. The Echin keep sending surplices through the stargate and soon Archmage Alterreality have build a army greater then any before and all in secret. And not a momant to late. The defenses of Star Sapphire was staring to fail not that the local feudal lord Finlay manage to mount a coordinated attack. But then the Echin Armies retaliated with such forces that both Archmage Alterreality and his enemies where suprices. They quickly started to kill of every enemy in on the planet surface and lunch attack out in to orbit to damage the enemies Starships. Billions of small drones swarm over the enemy and giant organic mechs build by the new factories crush anything that got in their way. Star Sapphire was free once again.

Sha the leader of the Echin that have answered Archmage Alterreality call for help said: "Ahh... See.... They are on their run now... Now we going to hunt them down... And punish them for their betrail... Next phase... Is to be initiated..."

With the first phase done second phase was initiated. Large Space Shipyard where being constructed in orbit and soon ships where being pump out. The factories and newly contacted mines stated to produse the new raw matrial that was needed. so mush resources where produse that some of it was send back in to the stargate. Soon the all the traffic in the to the stargate where surplice shipment and captured enemies that where going to the Echin home world. Archmage Alterreality started to think that he may have done a pact with the devil and this could very well cost him a lot more then he expected still Alterreality knew that as the situation look now he could not do mush and could only hope for the best.

The battle continued on and Archmage Alterreality enemies quickly fell to the Echin and Alterreality armies. Then one day the last of Alterreality was defeated and Alterreality said to Sha: "You have now defeated my all of my enemy. You can go back now so we both can rebuild after this horbal war."

But Sha answered: "Ahh... But those that betrayed you... Are not dead... The Conclave... The Exiles... The other feudal lords... They did not help you... In you time of need... They need to learn their lesson... They need to die..."

Archmage Alterreality answered with a desperate voice: " But you can not do that. They do not deserve to die." Then Alterreality calmed down: "Verywell then. Do what you have to do."

Archmage Alterreality have dreaded this momant and planed for it. He had allready made preparations. A he had assemble a Elite team of the best Technomancer he knew and made his way to the stargate. Alterreality have collected data on his mystires guest all along. He knew their weaknesses now. He knew how he could deafeat them. Armed with bio weapons design to kill his enemy, micro nukes, environmental armor and several minor gadgets Alterreality and his team walk through gate. They arrived instantly at the on top of a platform suspended in the air inside the Black metallic tower. Alterreality had counted on this however and perpared. But before he made his way down from the plateform he send a last message to his loyal army on the other side of the Stargate: " Close the Stargate and warn the Conclave and the Exiles about the Echin. May the Shadow Emperor be with you and may you all forgive me for my sins." after that transmission instructions how to deactivate the Stargate and protect it form access form the Echin. Alterreality also gave them instruction to give the tomes that started all this trouble in to Conclave. Archmage Alterreality then procedes to deactivate the gate from their side. It would take a almost a millennium before the gate was open again.

Back in Ęthirans space the Conclave and the Exiles where quickly notefide by this new treat and they instantly started to mobilized their forces. The Echin became confuse when the gate close and their contact with the high command was lost. A second Great galactic war was fought out millions died on both side but in the end thanks to Archmage Alterreality deception the Ęthirans prevailed.

The Aftermath

The wars was both very damaging but lead to new technological development. A lot of technology of Goshvoth and Echin technology was reverst enginered and the Ęthirans became the dominate race in the region for many years. But the Conclave limited the power and their right to interact with other lord and alien spices. the Conclave also gave the Exiles direct controle over several world to compsate for the indirect controle the Exile had enjoyed begore and a new shard world declaration was drawn up . Exiles reluctantly accepted this when and several of the liberal local lords where given the option to become some of the first world put in care of the Exiles. Most of those that got the offer accepted it. The Stargate was open almost a millennial after the war. On the other side was found a small Empire almost identical to the old Ęthiran Empire. A small conclave rule the over a the ruins of the once mighty Echin Civilization. This new Ęthiran Empire was late absorb in to old Ęthiran Empire without any problem and the new Conclave members where aloud to work in the old Conclave. Archmage Alterreality after deafeatinf the Echin and help building the new Ęthiran Empire in the Echin sector he retired from poltics and war locking him self up in his new laboratory. As the year went by his people saw him less and less often and one day he dispeared leaving his laboratory hind the hand of his Echin assistance and muttering something that about how this new Empire was not new att all. Their are some that believe that he still live and wanders the Galaxy to find is secrets. But if that wear the case then he would be one of the oldest creatures in existence. On the other hand he was the farther of Necromancy. A few of the Goshvoth where put in zoos and are not considers to be quite rare. Technomance collect this what they call savage spices from a age past. As for the Echin well... Deep withing the most secretive libraries many of them works as scholars, scriber and supplicants. Some have bin able to reach higher ranks but all are kept hidden from the world. And most surprisingly is how well they have adapted to the Ęthiran Empire. Few have ever seen them.

What about the small spices that climb on the Echin then? Well they still live. Infact they are a pest! Ęthiran call them Squidlings. Nasty little pest. the Echin can seem to be able to handle however. But i will tell you more about the Squidling a other time.  ;)

Archmage Shadowstar and the early years of explortion

The first once that started to build a space program was actually the Exiles. It was also the Exiles that started to experiment with FTL communication and transportation but it was a technomancer called Shadowstar that would make the greatest contrebutions to FTL. Wile the Exiles have manage to construct a FLT link from Ęthyx to the nearest star where the Exiles have made a small colony initiate Shadowstar as he was know as then have experimented on creating a craft that could move it self faster then light without the need of a primitive jumpgate like the one use by the Exiles. This could mean that in instead of using generation ships to get to the stars a one could use a true starship to explore and colonizes the universe. Shadowstar experimented with some stolen gravimetric manķpulators from the Exiles which they use for the FLT link and was able to build a FTL drive. It was however far from perfect and it was still very slow. Only barely able to make it past the light barrier. But even if Shadowstar tried to keep this invention secret rumors of the devices started to leak out. Fearing that others would steal his work he mounted the devices on one of his masters experimental space ships and simply run away to explore the galaxy and to prefect his FTL drive. It would take Almost 200 years for him to comeback. When he returned with incredible stories about strange alien world. He paid his former master a hefty compensation for the stolen ship which included a large Zoo of animals, lots of Holo tomes and alien technical Artfacts and his master forgave him. To the Conclave he gave the technology of the FTL drive that had bin improved far beyond it original design incorporating strange alien artfacts in the hops that Conclave would let him become a part of the Empire again. the Conclave bestode him the title of Archmage as a thanks because they knew he could just escape without leaving them nothing and that the Exile's was not winning the FTL space race no posses the first colony outside of Ęthyx star system but also they have started to create FTL drives. Not only that but a War betwine the Exiles and the Empire have bin slowly growing just erupted some years prior to Shadowstars return. Even with the Empires nuclear arsenal, their larger Space fleet and their huge army they could not hit the exiles where it really hurt because of the Exiles FTL superiority. But with this new technology the Empire was able to threaten every part of the Exiles world. Even so the war in the end did not have any clear winners or losers. the Exiles willfully accepted annexation to prevent any more bloodshed on both sides as long as they where able to be autonomous withing the Empires borders.  The conclave excepted this as they started to worry about the other aliens Archmage Shadowstar have told about. The Conclave would with the Exiles long have a monopoly on FTL technology.

Cool. I can't believe I thought my idea was ignored when I only got 4 comments in the day I posted it, you've only gotten two (now three) since the 20th.  :o

Anyway, I like the idea. It reminds me of quite a few sci-fi books.

The Blade Cult

Swords have long bin a part of Ęthiran culture. No other weapon is hold in so high regard as a Sword even in a age with Atomic weapons and guns. The bladesmith a highly skilled Technomancer have allways bin in at the forefront of technological development. During the early iron age pattern welding was use to make the hardest and sharpest blades. In the Galactic ages Aggregated diamond nanorods, Ultrahard fullerite and other exotic materials are use to forger a blade that is hard enough to cut through diamond. Sometime blades are even made out of pure Energy often using the lessons learned from plasma lances crafting but a their are many bladesmiths and knights that do not think  Energy blades are true blades. Both straight edged swords and curved edged sword are manufactured and which type of blade is made in mainly dependent on local traditions. Blades with wave patter, zigzag, hocks or other unusual form are not common however as blade like that often are harder to use then regular blades but some use them because of their flashiness. Most blades are eather made to be use with 1 arm or with 2 upper arms. A few Swords have bin made need 4 arms to be wield properly but because most Ęthiran have larger upper arms then lower arms and because they generally are taught as clumsy not many of blades 4 armed swords have bin made. Sword that use 2 arms in combat often comes with a pair of smaller blade  that run along side the arms or sometimes Shields run along side the arms use with the lower arms to help parry blows. Many Ęthirans are ambidextrous so is not uncommon for Ęthirans to be train in using 2 or 4 swords in combat. A few are even trained at the very deadly art of using 4 flexible sword at onces. A very hard skill to master indeed. Sword spears and double-bladed Sword staffs also a two very respected weapon but some argue that the double bladed Sword staffs is more a weapon for show then combat efficiently like the 4 hand sword. Some Swords gain mythical status and many of the finest blades are handed down from generation to generation.

One of the most mythic sword is the Metaphysics Blade. Rumored to be made by one of Purethought apprentices long after the battle of Star Sapphire this blade could supposedly cut thought space and time it self. Only the wielders own mind limit is power. The blade was slightly curved and black with a blue reflection and it said that those that starred straight at the blade surfaces where at risk of losing both their mind and soul when they gaze in to the endless sea of knowledge that ripled through blade. Most modern schoolers hold the blade only as myth but there are still those that search for it and there are countless thousands of blades, one more powerfull then the other that try to claim the title of Metaphysics Blade but none have even come near the mythical properties ascribe to the Sword.

Plasma Lance and other Plasma Blades
The Plasma Lances is a old weapon that have bin use for Millenniums before Ęthiran intervened in the Necrid conflict. A weapon that use a projected coneformed force field to keep a hot plasma in places that is then use to cut through solid matrials. Most of these blades are blue thanks to Cherenkov radiation if no manipulation with the energy blade have bin made. On contact the forcefield releases the plasma producing severer damage. The user can also release a short burst of plasma by opening up the cone formed force field. A fearsome weapon indeed. Lately as Plasma Lance technology have miniaturized smaller energy blades have started to be prodused. Most are in the forms of wrist energy blades use by Assassins who prefer a weapon with high power of the blade that can be easily concealed with a push of a on the panel. Plasma Blades are the most common form of Energy blades.

Wierd, The Metaphysics blade was exactly like the blades used by The Unspoken, the gods of The Auyuelcliads.

I never did post the description, to keep it more mysterious.

Cool. I pick the name because it describe it nature. A blade that is supposedly beyond the natural world.

Who know maybe the blade use by The Auyuelcliads Gods and the Ęthiran Metaphysics blade is the same?  ;)

*Dum-Dum-DUM!*
As long as the technology is originally form The Unspoken, or there may be a crusade:P
I do not know. The Ęthiran Metaphysics blade was forged by one of Purethought apprentices long after the battle of Star Sapphire according to Ęthiran myth. His name is unknown but he is often called the Blacksmith or the Bladesmith. This was a very long time ago however when the Ęthiran Stellar Empire was still young. And most schoolers believe it just a myth because the technology to forge a blade that even comes close to the power ascribed to the sword is even beyond what any Civilization is capable today.

I do not know enough to about the Unspoken to judge if their is a connection. If the blades is as powerfull as it rumored then any creature capable of wielding it would be like a God.

The metaphysics blade sounds a lot like the Subltle Knife from the His Dark Materials series.
Wait, you're telling me Radiosity isn't the graphical simulation of a nuclear bomb?

His Dark Materials is the most amazing trilogy ever. Look it up, author is Philip Pullman.
No way dude, you're trolling me.

His Dark Materials is fantastic...apart from the ending *Sigh*.......
