Out of Hand (ST)
« on: July 23, 2006, 05:29:36 am »
This is a storyline thread, detailing the build up to the war between the Ęthirans and the Icthians, the war itself, and the subsequent Fall of both empires. This is not an RP thread.

"Captain, further reports are coming in of another freighter convoy going missing in sector 18. The escort ship was the Furioso, and there are no reports from her either."

"Now that is regrettable. Can we send some ships to investigate?"

"I'm not sure any of the local combat-ready ships are due out of their service for another week, captain. None of our support ships have more firepower than the Furioso, so I doubt they'd be able to stand against whatever attacked that ship. If you wish, I can put in a report asking for something to be sent by fleet command."

"That might take a while. Hmm. Send a scout ship anyway, with orders to run at the first sign of a disturbance."

"My lord we where able to capture some alien scum that did no want to pay toll for passing thought our space. We toke there ships and cargo and send the survivors as slaves to the market"

"Good. When are they going to learn how to respect the Ęthirans! This is my part of space and they shall pay tribute or die!"

The scout ship Lazy Cloud drifted through space, arriving near the area where the freighters had disappeared, leaving nothing but wreckage. The captain noticed a nearby planet, previously thought uninhabited. The Lazy Cloud changed course whilst broadcasting a report back home.

Arriving near the planet, an outpost was found and a message was broadcasted.

//Greetings, unknown outpost. We are here to investigate reports of missing freighters. Would you happen to know anything about this?//

Without even a word of reply, the Lazy Cloud turned and made for home. Onboard, the captain spoke to his lieutenant.

"These pirates call themselves Ęthiran. I have heard the name, but I do not know much about them. Send a report of this incident to Fleet Command straight away."

"Yes sir." Came the reply.

Later, the report was analysed at Fleet Command. A decision was reached to send future freighters in that sector with a larger military escort, with the captain of the Lazy Cloud placed in charge.

"My lord there still not paying tribute and what is worse their getting more well armed!"

"We just have to increase out fleet then! As long as we can just keep ahead of our pray."

As the Icthian fleets get bigger so dose the Ęthiran fleet. battles are fought every day betwine the Icthian who try to hold the trade lane opened and the Ęthirans who whats to tax any ship moving in what Archbaron Vileclaw now calls his domain. Sometimes Vileclaw even send out small raiding parties to the local starsystems just to gain respect but nothing seems to work. The spiral of violences only seems to increase.

"Commander, this violence is increasing rapidly. We cannot afford to mobilise the fleet unless we're at war, but we can't contain these attacks without them. We need to try something else."

"I will ask Fleet Command to put someone on it."

Delegated to a sub-committee and using what limited information they could glean from the archives, the Icthians eventually came up with the idea of contacting groups which were apparently rebels from the main Ęthiran cause. Sending diplomatic ships to known rebel systems, they attempted to make contact and win them over.

With a lot of luck a Icthian was able to contact a Rebel faction know as the Knight of Freedom. These rebels seem to be very well trained.

"We have notices that you ships are getting attack and that it is putting a lot of strain on your spacefleet. The good thing is that it also putting a lot of stain on Archbaron Vileclaws fleet and that he have started to organizes other Lords to help him out. Now when there distracted we can start to try organizes our self. Expand our ranks and free our people. With your support we can not just win the war but also big freedom for all races."

The Knight of Freedom also tells the Icthian about the other rebel faction and about the exiles

"The Exiles have long abandon the course to make the empire fall. We where once the most noble warriors in the Exiles ranks but today we fight our own course. We are still the most well trained and well armed of the rebel factions but the more we unite the stronger we will get. with your support of weapons and technology I'm sure we can make a stand against the Empire but i will not lie to you. It will not be easy."

"We will certainly take you in if you can help us ensure that you can help us keep our shipping safe. We can supply you with weaponry, food, and other resources, and we may be able to lend some ships in the future. Any Ęthiran rebels are more than welcome on Icthian worlds if you need to escape your government."

Though an entirely cynical move to keep their trade lanes open, the Icthians began shipping supplies to the rebels to help in their fight. It was not long before further Lords united to the Empire's cause to deal with the Rebel threat.

In the Galactic Congress, Princess Celiu began to speak out more and more radically about the supposed Ęthiran threat to galactic stability. Her remarks attracted attention far and wide, and called for political pressure to end Ęthiran "tolls" and other attacks on alien ships.

The war within the Ęthiran empire gets more brutal day by day. Rebels start to strike everware and there ranks swell as more a freed. Without the Icthian support of food, Weapons and technology this uprising would not have lasted long but now the uprising seem to soon be unstoppable. It have bin thousands of years sins a uprising have bin as successfully as this. The Conclave is starting to get worried and Suspect that Icthian are behind it even if the Icthian try to mask there involvement as well as they can. Many of the weapons are ever imported form other races just to throw the Ęthiran Lords and the Conclave of track.

Then one day the galaxy is greeted by terrball news.

//Today Princess Celiu was found Assassinated. Little traces have bin left but Princess Celiu have apparently bin course by a thin Plasma cut. Most believe the attack may have bin carried out by members of Ęthiran Empire which sins several years have started to expand heavily in this part of the galaxy. The conflict betwine the Ęthiran Empire and Icthian started when the Ęthiran lord known as Vileclaw have tried to establish a pressens in Icthian space and threaten  to count of a vital traderoute. This could severally increase the allready hostile attitude betwine the two Empires.//

//This is it! The assassination of our beloved Princess was intolerable. This was a vile, evil and cowardly act which we demand you step forward and take responsibility for! We will not hesitate in declaring total war if you will not comply.//

//The Conclave have not involvement in the conflict near you border but we will not hasten to Exterminate your kind if you are foolish enough to declare war on us!//

Soon assassination within the Ęthiran Empire starts to run rampent. Many Nobles and Technomances are killed. There is more and more figthing in the Empire. It becomes harder and harder for the Icthian to deny any involvement and the Conclave is starting to get nervous. A emergency counsel is put in order to discuss the matter at hand. The Conclave decided to declare a Extermination war again the Icthian. Anyone that will not attack the Icthian will be regarded as a traitor and will be marked for Extermination to.
All the Lords start to mobiles to support the war effort and to crush the uprising.

//Icthian! You involvement in the assassinations and your support of the Rebels have earned you and those that stand with you Death! We will purge this galaxy from your taint! If you are lucky you may end up in the bio vaults! May the Shadow Emperor guide us to victory!//

Upon hearing the new turn of events the council of the Exiles decides to secretly aid the Icthian with technology and knowledges and sends a secret message to the Icthian.

//We the Exiles have decided to aid you the Icthian with technology and knowledge. We feel that this might be the start of the events that we have predicted would happen so many years ago. Regardless if it is those events or not we feel that we can not sit ideally by and watch as them unfold. We like to help.//

The Council met, and the decision was made to mobilise the fleet. No-one had wanted to get involved in a war and certainly no-one had had any idea that events would snowball so much. But it was now, and the Icthians had to defend themselves from their xenophobic enemies.

On countless worlds, ships were brought out of spacedocks and orbital defenses readied. Patrolling ships and those stationed far away were called home. Propaganda was broadcasted and the people readied themselves for whatever might come. No-one knew where any attacks might hit, so all worlds were on alert and the fleet was spread from colony to colony.

In their arrogance and ignorance of the scale of the Ęthiran empire, the Icthians declined the assistance of their allies, believing they would be able to deal with a small incursion quite readily. A message was sent to the Ęthirans, however:

//Your reigns of oppression will end. Your abuses will continue no longer. If war is what you desire, then you may bring it.//

Soon Icthian ships mysteriously disappear with out a traces. This really scares the command as they starts to wonder what they have gotten them self in to. There are also Reports badly organized Ęthirans raids starts invading small outpost and using nuclear weapons to Deviate worlds. Most likely minor lords looking for glory but the attack seem to get more well organized and larger. The fight against the raiders are going somewhat well but the mysteries disappere of Icthian could really become a problem

The Exiles however helps the Icthian with technology and infomation to help out. Apparently the Icthian ships we destroy or capture by just a few but very very expensive and advances starships. Ships outfittied with the latest technology and ancient artfacts from before the last Techno purge. The Exiles have long bin studying the technology need to create crafts like those ships and have even bin able to acquire a few. They send the technology like Spectral Blade and Armor, Pseudo Singularly Generator and Projectors, Reanimation technology and Nano warfare technology, Super Liquid that makes aircraft travel without friction and FTL drive modifications so that small ships can fly in Ęthiran space without risking a Temporal Guardian incident. Anything of value that the Exiles have collected or researched over the years is send to the Icthian. The Exiles even send some of superpowerfull ships over to the Icthian.

//We the Exiles would like to offer you the Icthian some of our most valued possessions. These ships are cable of destruction on a unprecedented scale. Do not get fool by the small size. One ship alone can destroy a world. We how that these ships and the infomation we have provided will help you combat the Ęthiran Empire. Maybe you will even be able to modify some of you own ships to use this technology. We recommend you strike quickly and unseen and use there hubris against them.//

With the new weapons, technology and infomation how to combat the Ęthiran Empire the Icthian Empire is soon able to start fighing on a equal footing. But the Ęthiran Empire is larger and Ancient. Maybe even the largest Empire in existences. The fight will be long and hard and the Icthian must use their superior organization and the help of the Rebel and Exile Allies to maximum effect.
