    Default Space empires – The great unknown

    Ok, here it goes. A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.
    Many nations had achieved space flight. Many nations, using unique methods of transportation have taken to the stars. They forged empires, forth wars and made their mark on the galaxy.

    This is the dawn of a new era. [No longer valid]The era of No BonzaiBannana.[/No longer valid]
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Character sheet:

    Empire type:
    Empire name:

    Leader title:
    Leader name:

    Biological Information:

    Behavior: (peaceful/warlike/balanced)

    Starting planets: (number is limited to between 15 and 50) (Remember, population planets build the ships but mining worlds make the materials for them)

    Starting army: (small/medium/large)

    FTL engine type: (how do you move faster than light?)

    Description:
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Rules:

    [No longer valid]0. No BonzaiBannana[/No longer valid]

    1. No claiming technology (anyone can have any tech)

    2. No BonzaiBannanaing (If you are under attack, deal with it.)

    3. Joining only with invitation.

    4. This is an Empire control RPG, naturally not all things about your empire will be made public. (But don’t take it too far; the 20 fleets appearing when you said that you had none are bad. 1 is ok, but not 20.)

    5. No instant killing enemy ships or planet, but weapons have different effects. Post how they affect your enemy. Also, it is ok to instant kill star fighters and really small ships that the enemy has thousands of to demonstrate your weapons, but again not to far.

    6. Remember, races that trade and colonize are weaker in fighting than races that just fight.

    7. This game is like Travian. You will always have the good, the bad and the ugly.

    8. No number crunching calculator using thing. This is not Star Wars New factions. Just have god dam fun!

    9. No posting unless you are participating in the game or have the intention of joining it.

    [No longer valid]10. Communications between empires are handled by PM.[/No longer valid]

    11. No editing posts in the thread that have been posted under by other persons. The only exception to this rule is the so called "posting" message. That is, the situation where a player designates a post as a placeholder to reserve place for a future post. A player may edit the contents of a "posting" message but only of the latest one and only if less than one page has passed since it was posted.

    The only other exception is this post.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    My character sheet:

    Empire type: Centralized Communist style slave using empire
    Empire name: Centaury Psy (centaury for: Centaury Empire)

    Leader title: Emperor
    Leader name: Purpelius the 7th

    Biological Information:
    The Centaury are a bipedal humanoid race that originated on the planet of Alpha Centaury. Their skin has the same basic color as humans but with a light bluish coloring to it and their hair and eyes can have virtually any color from the spectrum.

    Behavior: warlike, expansionist

    Starting planets: 8 population worlds, each controlling 4 Mining worlds (32 in total, only 8 have more than 2000 people on them.)

    Starting army: medium-large

    FTL engine type: Hyperdrive

    Description:
    Heavily draws upon the Austro-Hungarian empire and the WWI and WWII German empires.

    750 years ago the planet of Alpha Centaury was riddled by what we would call the third world war. The war left the planet ravaged and billions of its people dead. From the ashes of this once proud civilization arose a leader. That leader was Pylon Purpelis the 1st. In a series of short and bloody wars he united the people of centaury and promised them the stars. I am Pylon Purplelis the 7th. And I shall continue my ancestor’s legacy to get living space for the centaury people.

    If there are any objections post them now or be forever silent.

    Character sheet:

    Empire type: Highly defensive/expansionist
    Empire name: Itilika

    Leader title: [None]
    Leader name: Kiklei Ten'mar

    Biological Information: The Itilican race can hardly be described as muscular; they appear with a weak stature, nearly translucently blue skin and muscle giving sight to their skeletal structure, a large array of small bones the link together and allow amazing flexibility that the creatures' sparse muscles take the fullest advantage of. The are a great deal shorter than a regular humanoid, the tallest of the race only reaching about a meter in height. On their cheeks are gills, which, in the past, functioned as their source of oxygen. But through the years, the breed into a new species that no longer required water to breathe, but still retained the slits in their cheeks. Most can still breathe underwater, however, and it is the prefered location of residence. Akin to fish, the Itilica lay eggs, which birth in large hatchery plants. Due to the large amount of eggs that can be lain by a single female, the race proliferates at a much higher rate than a normal bipedal human. They boast no hair on any part of their body, and they show much resemblance to a fish; with webbed feet and hands for swimming.

    Starting planets: Seventeen:
    Literia Prime; Their original planet is completely covered in water and their is barely any sign of life. The planet has been dug deep into, and is only used for the populace. It holds control over four minor planets in the immediate area, use for mining, food, or other purposes, name respectively to their discovery, Literia One, Two, Three, and Four.
    Riortia Prime; Another populace planet that is mainly water covered, with massive volcanoes spitting constant lava in many places. It controls six other planets, named in the same system as Literia.
    Melulon Prime; The most barren and dry of all the populace planets, the water haters of the race came here to relax from the wet environments they were accustomed to living in. It controls only one other planet, named Melulon seven. The other six fell from a cause depicted in the Description section.
    Kelanai Prime; An Earth like planet with a good mix of water and dry land, the planet has been well dubbed one of the most popular places of all the empire. Controlling two other planets, it resembles the perfect image of a planet system for an Itilican.

    Starting army:
    Small; approximately 5000 ships.

    FTL engine type: Phase Shifting:

    Phase shifting is a relatively simple mechanic, in which the affected ship slips in to a state of intangibility; where its general form is silhouetted by a faint ghostly blob of white. After taking the small flip of seconds to transfer to the alternate phase, a craft cannot be effected by weapon's fire of any sort, and is able to pass through objects without feeling effect of gravitational pull. Along with travel, this mechanic is used in combat. The only known way to detect a space craft would be visual contact, but this can be nullified with simple cloaking.

    The other half of the process consists of taking Newton's law of inertia into motion*. An object in motion, will stay in motion unless acted upon by an outside force. With absolutely nothing to affect a ship's speed in the phase, the Itilicans devised a system to reap the full benefits; a super engine, in near equivalence to some of the similar FTL methods, yet exponentially smaller. The burst engine only has to maintain its top speed for a fraction of a second, so it's designed to reach that specific velocity in fastest possible way. As ships never physically exit real space, it is a simple matter to slow and turn a ship, the only draw back is a specific course has to be set, or direct pilot interaction is required.

    * No pun intended.

    Description: Several thousand Earth years prior to today's date; location unknown, likely somewhere in alternate phase space. Approximate real space location, galactic South of the Centaury Riech.

    Approximately two Earth hours before the expected launch of the super system project, a saboteur managed to alter the configuration in one of the drives, which would cause massive overheats, in a device that was intended for universal conquest. With the deadline ready, an access code was accepted by scanner. In the massive space station, the phase engine instantly drew power from supporting planets, and a white glow shot from the machine.

    Then, disaster. Hoping to finally achieve universal domination, the Itilicans were taking aback as - right at the stage of entering the shifted realm - the engine overheated and detonated, and so more suddenly than they hoped, they were stuck in the midst of an alternate realm.

    Through the course of several thousand years, a massive force of over 160,000 ships was drilled into the diminutive force that the Itilicans possess now, smashed out of their former glory by nothing other than wraiths and apparitions flooding the deadly realm. They managed to destroy several planets in their rampage, and each Earth day that passed killed another crying hope to return to their home.

    By the time they got back, everything had changed. Well, most did at least. Due to some strange glitch in the phase portal, the gravitational fields of the planets stayed the entire time, and with the entire system's sudden appearance in the universe, barely anything had change to signify their presence. It was generally a good spot to be in in unknown space as it is now...

    Ship/Arms Information: This section will be re-written in the near future, with my return.

    (using sheet form previous rpg if that ok)
    Faction: united Coalition of steel
    Race(s): drones and kliran
    Planets: Thor-alpha (and its moon of Loki) Sif-beta and twelve other planets which are numbered (E.g zone-05) all numbed planets have huge mining and production facilitates.
    Leader: unit-AI1
    leader title: unit AI-1
    behavior:mechanized religious extremists

    History: during their first expansion into space the Kliran devolved a fully working artificial intelligence within one lifetime the AI Drones had taken control of all automated systems. Using the kliran’s own defence ships against them the drones led a revolution to gain control of all of the empires government. Although the kliran met this takeover with outright force at first several decades later when the civil war had died down the new U.C.S entered a golden age with the drones driving the civilization ahead using superior numbers and logic while the kliran, with no need to work or run the empire, drove the ideas of philosophy and religion ahead to come to the conclusion that the only true faith was theirs and that all others who would not embrace it were unfit in the eyes of the universe. Now building a huge military to wipe those who will not believe off the face of the universe the U.C.S prepares for their great crusade.(this is all common knowledge too all factions that have been in contact with the U.C.S)
    Description: kliran are insectoid in facial features standing at an average of six feet they have large exoskeletal shoulders and two long spindly arms ending in claw like hand with two fingers and two thumbs their legs are like that of a praying mantis and small bony wings. Higher class kliran have bony crests on their heads. Drones are built in the kliran’s image with minor upgrades for the job they were built for.
    ****
    (if previous rpg means anything)
    the U.C.S has recently begun their crusade sending a large armada to destroy the nazzarian trade federation. cutting a swathe of destruction in in their wake they now make their way to the NTF's home world of zar

    FTL travel: artificial wormhole generation

    starting army: large (armada)

    Only if you use them for something. For example mining or have orbital installations that are around them.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    And you don’t have to use the whole char sheet. But you have to state the fallowing: Empire name, Leader title, Leader name, Behavior, Starting planets, Starting army, FTL engine type.

    Default Anouncement

    I have sent out invitations. The game starts when they have all responded. And when we agree to start.

    Any complaints about the game rules or people’s entries must be said before the game starts.
