Your opinion is not necessarily mine; Your opinion is not fact; Your opinion is not absolute. Your opinion is a perspective.
*As the Mandalorian forces begin to clear the wreckage, Several Wings of Heavy Bombers and a few wings of Crossfires appear right in the rear of the Mandalorian fleet. The Bombers had been floating around in the field, completely shut down and masked as damaged ships. They now turn power on, also having kept a keen eye out for the Stealth ships. Already as they appear on the Mandalorian sensors they have begun making "Trench Runs" on the Keldabes and Aggressors around the Mandalorian Flagship. The Hyper-Velocity gun changes targets and aid the bombers.
Having all learned and studied the enemy tactics from the other battles, a counter tactic to the Buzz droids have been devised. Half the Crossfires goes up and the other half goes down in order to force the enemy vipers to do the same or risk getting caught in a pincer move. This effective brings the fight away from the Buzz droids. As soon as the friendly forces have moved out of the way, Corvettes fire into the middle.*
Jolee, NG. You fine with those numbers?
Also we should get a GM to assign points. I would like to recommend only 1 point for myself. I screwed up several times during this event, so I think that is fair.
OOC: Again, you are really only making it harder for yourself. Lol
IC: After communication have been established, several transports arrive in the system. They land on the planet near the city and from it disembark a fresh legion from Bastion. After the weary defenders fill the new troops in on the situation, they board the Transports, being taken back to bastion for a well deserved leave.
After equipment and supplies have been unloaded, the new troops settle in. Repairing the Outer Defenses are restoring the shield to full capacity.
The Legion re-placed the destroyed defenses (Dug down AT-AT's and artillery) with new ones and deploy new MG-nests and fills up the trenches once more as well as leaving a new surprise for the next assault*
*The startfighters and bombers launched now reaches the Armageddon and targets the point defense lasers that are targetting the transports with Tens troops and Orix.
Right behind my advanced forces I arrive with a few boarding shuttles and deploy near the Armagedons engines. With me I have a few squads of Assault troopers and a few Jedi knights to lead them.
As we breach the hull, I send two squads to assist Sab3r, while I lead the last squad with me to the Brigde*
OOC: Forgot about me Lord Pain? xD
*My fleet continues to fire upon the enemy vessels and they come under heavy bombardment from the Scythe class crusiers and with supprot fire from the Imperiousclass. A task group breaks out and starts to engage the enenmy interdictors*
Destroy? Don't know anything about that. I'm just fighting the corruption.
"Lets do this.." Malan mumbled to himself and then gave out orders to his senior officers who were waiting for orders.
The Ruusan force opens fire, diverting all available power to weapons and forwards deflectors. The fleet focus fire on the Corvettes.
The Hyper-Velocity gun, now take on a 3rd Venator.*
*A bright light shines in the Mandalorian fleet as one the Venators is hit by the Slugs of the Hyper-velocity gun, on the planets surface, battering down the particle shields and the armor quickly before hitting the ship's power generator causing a massive explosion.
Malan observes the ship disappearing from the Strategic HoloMap. He now looks at countdown on his personal Datapad, it was a countdown till when the Mandalorians was in weapons range of the fleet. He was contemplating retreating, but every time they made an engagement, they would always be outnumbered and outgunned. The force he was commanding wouldn't last long.
His thoughts returned to the immediate situation. "Commander, send word to all ships to have their spotters primarily looking for those stealth vessels. We know they are there, it is just a matter of finding them."
Once again he was looking at the HoloMap of the system. The Mandalorians was now flying through the wreckage of the first engagement at Deysum. Allot of starfighters and bombers where floating around, having been victims of the Buzz droids or Corvette fire.
The Hypervelocity gun fires at another Venator, just as the Mandalorian ships enters weapon range.*
OOC: Hahaha. Why the hell is that planet a sector capital? xD
I didn't even know. Or I forgot... We'll need to sort that out at some point.
But yes, you will be roleplaying the Sector Representatives. If you want ;D
"You spoke well, Mr. Thain." The Senator said and gave a small bowing gesture. Some also noticed that this was the same Senator who made the spontaneous public speech on Eriadu.
"In light of these events, the Federation extends an offer of military aid to the neutral sectors who wish it. However, the Federation in uncomfortable with risking a potentially very straining conflict, so in order to hopefully avoid both further aggression from the Mandalorians and more conflicts, we propose a treaty, we propose membership into the Federation."
He continued after taking something to drink; "I shall now bore you with going through the entire Treaty and you have all had it in advance for some time now. Basically what this treaty means is that you are offered full membership in the Federation, with each sector getting a predetermined number of seats on the Senate based and size and the number of systems. Locally, you retain your own security, government and to a certain extent, your own laws. The latter part meaning that the Federation preserve the right to enforce nation wide Laws and Acts like, The Right of Sentience or Laws against certain products proclaimed Illegal by the Senate.
You can all of course look further into this, as all this Legislation is for public viewing on the Holonet. Now a short break where you can talk internally and think a little of what I have said. As soon as you are ready, we will continue and the word can be passed around for those who wish to speak, or perhaps have already decided.
Thank you for listening."
"Thank you. Let it first be known, that the Council was in agreement of refusing the Mandalorians, both their claim, and their offer. The claim being that the Ruusan systems were housing terrorist organisations, whom are supposedly attacking the Mandalorians from within our borders, their justification for this conflict. Their offer was to join their Hegemony.
In the case of their claim, before they attacked, there was no indication of terrorists and since there attack, there still isn't. But there will be! Sooner or later, people will take matters into their own hands, because in all honestly, our military stand no chance of winning on their own. To make it worse, the conflict have split the council, the various systems are switching their allegiance to whomever they think can save them. Some might soon accept the Mandalorians offer, some have called upon The Empire and some are even talking with the Hutts!
In case of my own system, and homeworld; Ruusan. I hope that the Federation may be able to help, And they have responded with an offer, a treaty of membership. I will let them talk more about that."
*Malan read the communication and responded;
"People of the Mandalorian Hegemony. Surrender to the Ruusan Sector Council unconditionally. This will be your final chance."
The fleet took up position now a little further away from the planet (Opposite side of you of course). It was set up in a formation with 2 Nebula Star Destroyers in front of each Endurance Carrier. Additional 5 Coronas fill the gaps with the corvettes spread out to achieve maximum coverage around the capital ships, yet still taking relative cover. Starfighters take care of what the corvettes can't defend.
communications are of course jammed.*
*The few Mandalorian ships are mopped up fast, and Malan is picked up. The fleet takes up position above Deysum and creates an interdiction field to catch any forces going through the system.*
*Malan out on some music on the Shuttle and proceeded his flight towards the Mandalorian fleet, now with full speed.
Unknown the the Mandalorians, the Ruusan fleet had made a short trip back, only to turn around and fly past them in hyperspace just out of sensor range. It came out of hyperspace right on the flank the Mandalorian forces above Deysum and opened fire, diverting power to front shields and turbolasers, targeting shield generators and bridges. Since the Mandalorian fleet near Uogo'cor might not be far behind, a timer was set to -5 minutes to the travel time from Uoro'cor.*
OOC: Since most of your two task forces are at Uoro'cor, on the way and back and the rest recalled, I presume the fleet presence here is minimal?
*The primitive nuclear weapons was even less effective. Technology had evolved far past such sensitivity. On the ground Malan was looking at the tactical situation, also observing the Mandalorian fleet re-position. He sent the word to the men. "Plug'em in". The power generators was now plugged into to two structures, one of them a shield generator and another a Hyper-velocity gun. Upon watching the shield encompassing the fortified section of the city, Malan received a communication, not even encrypted and saying nothing else but "Operation Scarecrow failed. Greet the guests."
Malan boarded a shuttle craft and left for orbit, keeping a keen eye on the Mandalorian fleet as he approached it slowly and the stopping some distance away, not to close to the Mandalorian ships, yet still out of range of the Hyper-Velocity gun.*
OOC: How could you know about the ambush? >_> So far jamming communication shave been a standard for this conflict, so it shouldn't be a surprise that communications stop. Meh, I was warned this would happen.
IC: *As soon as the new Mandalorian force arrives, the Ruusan force shuts off the Interdiction field and leaves.*
January, Desolation of the New Year's Resolutions
On the surface, Malan smiled, the Ion fire had limited effect. The work continued.
The Mandalorian force was ripped out of hyperspace on their way there. The Ruusan fleet had set up an interdiction field just outside the system of Uogo'cor and was ready. Once the first Mandalorian ships existed hyperspace their opened fire and jammed all outbound communications, only targeting shield generators at first, and focusing on the capital ships. On each flank several wings of bombers moved in to target bridges and engines. Starfighters provided cover and distraction for the bombers.
OOC: Since I didn't make the GM aware of my ambush, I guess it is only fair to let you decide the initial damage.
Ruusan fleet(Including garrison of Uogo'cor): 4 Nebula Class Destroyers, 2 Endurance-class carries, 10 Corona Frigates and 7 Nexus-Class Corvettes.
Happy New Year to you too! :)
"Risking soldiers to take a world devoid of the terrorist threat is ridiculous."
??? Are there terrorists in this sector or not? Don't just change the game halfway >_>
*On the planet the Ruusan military have set up a base in the capital city. They now begin the construction of two large structures in the city center of the planets capital, protecting them with sensor jammers, and fortifying the area around.*
OOC: As for New Aps, Chalacta and Umbrikkia. Unless someone else want to roleplay them (C'mon people, be fresh :P ). All they are gonna do is fire some warning shots to show that they do not approve, and then surrender.
On Ruusan, an argument was breaking out in the Council, the representatives were threatening to leave the council and find other allies if forces weren't sent to aid them. A tired Thain state that; "We cannot risk loosing our forces in an attempt to break through the Mandalorian lines, even if we succeed there would barely be any ships left to aid you!".
"The fleet is doing nothing. Where is it even? You refuse to tell us where it is!" the Chalactan representative responded. "If you will not aid my system, then perhaps the Hutts will!". The Chalactan and Umbrikkian representatives gives a nod to each other.
"HUTTS!?" The New Apsolon representatives yells. "We cannot trust those slugs! They will back stab us the first time they get. We need to look towards the Core. The Empire does not want anymore Mandalorian expansion than the Federation, but at least we can count on more extensive aid than "humanitarian aid"."
The argument continued long into the night with no clear ends meet*
Well. Better to ask for forgiveness than permission.
HAPPY NEW YEARS! :D
*The transport ships, including the B.A.C.T.A ships, now leave the planet together. No point being in having them stay.
Malan Drayson takes command of the ground forces and organize the defense.
*A short reply is sent from Ruusan. Diplomacy can resume once all Mandalorian military personal withdraw from occupied systems.*
OOC: had to be short, in 1 minute I have to go to a party. Happy New year! :)
OOC: "Thus the Ruusan Strikecraft was ordered to cross the gaps and into swarms of Buzz Droids that did their work to disable the vessels." - I wasn't aware my forces had gotten that close, but whatever. Lol
Not that Buzz droids can possibly be that effective imo.
*Over the planet, a good distance from the planet a transport fleet exited hyperspace and set down on the surface in the now evacuated cities. Unknown the anyone but those that could be trusted, half an army's worth of military equipment was being unloaded as fast as possible.
The Battle in space was lost. Malan had already ordered most to evacuate as was, as far as he knew the last to board the escape pod. The pod had barely left before the bridge exploded and the ship became adrift. The pod was picked up by a Corvette that hastily flew to the planet*
*Only few Starfighters are effected. As he had hoped, the Mandalorians used the same strategies as before and even did so prematurely. He only now ordered the Starfighters and Bombers to enter combat and they broke ranks with the fleet, which until had provided some cover.
Starfighters distract the StarVipers and Crusaders from the bombers at all costs, taking medium losses. The Bombers were targeting the Venators, focus firing on shield generators and bridges.
While the Starfighters and Bombers had gained the upper hand for the moment, things were looking dire for the rest of the fleet. Malan looked out the bridge window as a flash got his eye. One of the Carriers had lost its shields, unfortunately, secondary explosion took place in the power core and the ship exploded before it could be evacuated.
One of the officers on the bridge notified Malan that all the Frigates had been either destroyed or disabled and that the second carries shield were severely weakened. For now the Corvettes were doing fine.
The officer had only just finished updating Malan on their losses before an explosion on the bow of the command ship caused a tremor throughout the ship, almost causing Malan to fall.
"Sir, we've lost shields on the bow sir! The generators are damaged, I'm unable to recycle shields on that area!" someone shouted. "Order all personal to evacuate that area. Tell them they have 40 seconds, then close all shutters. That's an order." Malan replied, after which he turned to the communications officer. "Have the Corvettes disengage and pick up as many escape pods as they can, then retreat to Ruusan". The officer gave him a nod and did so.
A few minutes more, Malan thought to himself*
*As the Mandalorian fleet starts to move, Malan have in mind the data the scout ship collected. He orders the crew to start jamming their sensors and any signals that is detected coming from the Mandalorian ships towards the defense fleet. Since their ships was hardly automated in any way, if was limited to what effect hacking could really be and thus never have been a threat in wars. However, due to the unknown origin of this hack, he was taking no chances.
Malan looks at the Weapons officer as the first volley hits the shields of the flagship. "Well fire back you idiot!". And the defense fleet opens fire. The carriers launch all their fighters and bombers as they are gonna need them. The Star fighters take the front with orders to protect the bombers. They move in conjunction with the fleet as in moves forward at a steady pace.
He looked at his watch, 15 minutes and then he were to retreat, that was his orders.*
*Malan went over the ships he had. 1 Nebula-class Star Destroyer (Also the command ship), 2 Endurance-class Carriers, 3 Corona Frigates and 4 Nexus Corvettes. The Flagship was in the middle, flanked by both Carriers. All 3 ships where protected by a Frigate and Corvette each, with the last Corvette staying back to run interference if needed.
On the ground, the garrison forces prepare for an invasion.*
"They are coming" Said Thain. The Council took a quick vote and it was decided. The space above Ruusan became buckling with activity as ships left and came. As there was no need for the humanitarian aid at Ruusan, they were sent on.
As the B.A.C.T.A transport ships arrived above Deysum and set down on the surface where refugee camps where being prepped, along with other things, as many cities where evacuated. A smaller transport departed from one of them going to the command ship of the Deysum defense forces. Out of it came Malan Drayson, taking over command of the meager defense forces.*
*A Transport flee of 7 ships arrive at the egde of the Ruusan system, marked with the markings of the humanitarian organisation called The Intergalactic B.A.C.T.A Fund, which fittingly, or perhaps conveniently; was created sometime during the First Mandalorian Expansion. Malan was on board, tasked with delivering the supplies into the right hands.
On Ruusan the council received word of the latest from Random. The council had heard no reports of Mandalorians ships passing through their systems. They were considering sending the fleet to Deysum, and make their stand there. Others were arguing the opposite, hoping to draw things out by avoiding confrontation.
After a while the Council finally decides on opening up communications per the Mandalorian request, although they had made things quite clear. A Meeting was out of the question, as with an envoy means warships and they would allow none to pass Deysum for now.*
This comment has been posted in a private group.
OOC: Really? Lol
*Some politicians show a disturbing fascination with the Mandalorians display of wealth, but most are offended as they see it as an attempt at bribery. Even more join that stance as rumors spread out over the city.
The Chief of State orders it sent back, to the dismay of some. And at the same time sending a message to his people.*
"But I see that you may have confused humanitarian aid with war. While it is true that we have chosen to publicly support the Ruusan sector and its systems, Condemn the Mandalorian Hegemony and maybe even carry out Sanctions against them. It is not a declaration of war.
But yes, why should we concern ourselves with things so distant? Besides upholding the standards which we stand for and the obvious ramifications. Well let me present the facts;
There are NO evidence to suggest that the Mandalorians will stop there, in fact it is quite the opposite.
Secondly the actions of the Mandalorians have spurred several neutral sectors into talks with the Senate about Federation membership. Should this occur, these "so distant" events are gonna happen right next door."
The Senator held a little pause to drink some water and then rounded off with;
"It is time for the Federation to take a stance, not through speeches or strength of arms. But by taking action! And through these actions, we can hope help our allies, our friends and those in need. By standing up for what we believe in!"
An deafening applause prevented any further questions are before it started to die off the Senator waved a few times and then went back the the Senate hall where another meeting was to soon begin*
*The Federation spokesman was replaced with a Senator as things had stirred since last. He turned to the very persistent reporter.
"The Ruusan leadership have made it clear that they want to fight. That means a potentially devastating conflict? You would have us, just as last time, stand by and do nothing? Maybe you do not know where you are, but the Federation have values, compassion among those, values that we are proud of!"
A subtle applause interrupts the Senator for a moment and he continues.
"There may not be any immediate need for humanitarian aid. But once the fighting begins there will be. Should the war draw out, more and more resources will be diverted to the military, essential things like food and electricity. You would have us wait until it happens?"
The applause was a little louder this time and activity on the HoloNet had increased as more and more citizens took interest in the Press Conference.
I say no on the latter. I am not going to micromanage every single vessel. That sounds like A) We are cutting down navies so much we might as well rely on law enforcement vessels. B) Or a tedious nightmare.
I miss this guy :(
OOC: You mean half of them? xD Like those about opposing players, GM functions, Move restrictions etc.
You can leave this be, but anyone at any time down the line can call foul on it.
Now that I have ruined your fun. I shall take my leave. Cya.
(MUHAHAHAHA.. ahem... bye)
The way I see it. You can be religious or an atheist and still be "free thinking". All it requires is for one to be open to other possibilities. To acknowledge/accept that there may, even if incredibly unlikely in your opinion, be a chance that one self is wrong.
*Malan found the whole thing a little odd. He knew that some species, or force users for that matter was capable of speaking with their minds instead of their mouths but he had never seen it. Even though he wasn't even sure that it was the same in this case. Maybe it was technological, but he didn't really care. As long as it didn't compromise the mission.
"I see...But before I any of you with me on this mission, I have a few questions for the boy; How old are you? What combat experience do you have kid? This ain't a family vacation you know."
Malan himself started fighting as fairly young. But unless ordered too or if the boy was at least 16, he was not coming.*
he is skulking around in the depths of the Canadian/Skype woods, preparing his epic return to the RP. ;D
For the 3 join-able factions, there is enough people. It just happens that several haven't been active lately.
If both Bizzy and Praxis becomes GM's, then Fenris is stuck alone with the Federation.
And my char isn't exactly in a position to get leading position there if I were to return xD (That and all those damn promises that I make :P ) - Which reminds me, JOE SINCLAIR, YOU ASLEEP BUDDY!?! WE HAD PLANS YO!
Well, I guess it is just a misunderstanding then. He can join if he'd like, but he'll be disappointed xD
Character: Zoras Antales
Affiliation: Jedi Order/Federation
Progress: Need to finish Federation articles. Should be ready for Monday.
We can do it the other way also, I just thought the were more to how you get points than mere participation. You get points if people actually think you deserve it. In case you have done some really good stuff you might get maximum amount of points and such.
Just to be clear: The system works in a way where fx. Lightsaber Technique IV costs 4 points right? Because that is how I designed my skill tree's. Lol
- Maybe 10?
- My thoughts were that all those who participate decides in co-ordination with a GM. A player can be given as little as no points and then perhaps up to 3?
And what we have done with the freedom you suggest in the past is going to new people saying. "here's a new fleet. Go fight there". Whether they had any experience, or even deserved such a command in the first place.
Yes, everyone can go to school and learn tactics, but I doubt just anyone will understand the tactics and be able to apply them correctly.
While we can not teach everyone to be the really good commanders that they could technically claim to be, we can at least make sure they earn it by sacrificing something else about their char.
For what it is worth, I killed off Cronus because his "Legacy" (Not what I would call it. Lol ) left a sour taste in my mouth. I allowed Ten to change his history because Ten believed it would serve the lore best and I trust Ten to make it work.
I am also giving up the Fel Empire and my old char Loreck Fel simply because we are not enough role players to make the decision to keep it justice. I cared about the Fel Empire, not Cronus. So I do know how you feel.
But you should know that it is not your ENTIRE history that is taken away. Only that of the last few months.
*To rides search the dead Dunlendings fro any marks, but find none and ride back to Helms Deep, but scouts are left behind.*
Tne what are you now? Lol
Never heard of a Good Sith before xD
Killing Sith? :P
*The enemy missiles doesn't penetrate the shields (EaW canon...) and the fleet continues. The Corvettes retreat back behind the capitals after taking out the enemy starfighters and bombers in conjunction with friendly starfighters and bombers.
In a final push, all ships divert additional power to their weapons and obliterate most of what is left. The first to go being the heavy defense platforms and capital ships, with them out of the picture, the fleet quickly deals with the rest and moves into position above Korriban and scans the planet for any major defense installments and take them out, including planetary shield generators which haven't activated.
Afterwards, Loreck Fel who have been patiently waiting for the defenses to witter away now stands up from his seated position and walks up to the bridge window.
"Admiral it is time to bring balance to the force again. Let this be the beginning of the end for the Sith."
Everything in the fleets besides those forces dedicated to protect against ambushes, start a planet-wide orbital bombardment, spearheaded by the Emperor's Justice.*
Of course, but I don't consider Atheism a religion, that's why it wasn't included (Also I forgot xD )
I have always seen Religion as the belief in some form of deity.
Other than that I pretty much agree with what Mr. Walrus said. Most Religions all have their own extremist, be it Taliban in the Middle East or some Mormons (Or NRA supporters. Lol ) in the USA.
Even here in peaceful little Denmark can we find extremist, although I am not sure it has much to do with Religion, most Danes see Religion as more of an tradition than actual faith... Could be wrong though.
PM you? Now that would truly be heresy, because there is NO this could have been resolved without GM and a community vote. /Sarcasm
That's low dude. You are hanging me up on a grammatic fallacy?
NameGen@ Even if you fully upgrade them. They will still be slow big fat targets. Easy picking for a destroyer. Not to mention submarines.
But keep your delusions, just gonna make your enemies job much easier. lol
The only clue that I had was that it existed. If you left other clues then I did not see them.
The rest was a figured out using a map on your profile (On which Nebula's were highlighted) and taking a qualified guess based on NSO sectors and the fact that a remote location would be most suitable.
Also not rubbing it in. I just hoped I could give you guys some inspiration to try and find them, but sorry. Will stop helping you. >.<
I enjoy how confident you are being the USA and so sure you are about your upcoming victory. I would too, but not with you in charge.
Anyway, if anyone is gonna start a nuclear war. It's gonna be you mate.
No. In books they include names.
Unless we are talking about fairy tales for little children.
"And as the hero was smiling and enjoying the suns, his eye spotted a little town not even a farthing away. Hungry and thirsty but above all bored. He rushed forth at the speed of the wind and became a plague upon the town as he ate all their food, drank all their wine and slept with the mayors wife...."
Kabul is located in the North East part of Afghanistan you Moron.
Also if you WEREN'T in Kabul, then you should have said so from the beginning. Since there are more than 1 city in Afghanistan. You can't just say "Were entering a city and take it" >.<
You actually mentioned a city TWICE!
Go re-read your assault. Lol
I fail to see what this have to do with me, but go ahead and go to war with the entire Middle East. Your juts gonna waste about a 100.000 troops trying to stabilize the region over a few decades in your war with fanatics. Lol
Willingly ignorant? That is your comeback? Lol
I went from being religious to being Atheist partially because of such statements.
Also I am willing to accept being wrong if I am proven wrong. You won't, but that says more about you than me doesn't it?
*The defense forces open fire the moment the enemy fleets enters range and remain in their positions.
From the planet below, a duo of Hyper Velocity guns open fire on the Astropalus with support from the orbital defenses, all targeting the SSD.
The starfighters and bombers on approach (From Jesters fleet) and picked apart by the Corvettes that emerge from cover to make a quick skirmish then using their maneuverability to avoid much of the heavy turbolaser fire and retreating back behind the heavy warships.*
Two decades of war doesn't mean more recruits, it's quite the opposite in fact.
People get tired of war, and the generation that fights right now have been hearing about it for their entire lives. I don't think they are eager to participate on the horrible stories they hear of the Silentium, the YzV and Sith (Also Jedi as of late). xD
It's not who have the most people/troops that are in question. Only your means of procuring/training them so fast. Also you said it yourself, many of those troops are for meant for garrisons at various planets
Also out of the 400 billion in Allenteen, you have to remember that Allenteen is a major hyperspace lane intersection, which makes it a very rich world and therefor attracts a lot of people interested in riches and markets. Not war.
You can't simply use the population number as a basis, waay to many factors to consider. AND I think we would end up drowning ourselves in statistics and logistics if we keep going down this road xD
*The pacifier fleet completely ignores the newly arrived fleet and now rushes through the defenders with everything they have. Flying into defending ships and defenses. The two Golan platforms are taken out by two Scythe's. More ships, shuttles, bombers, and star fighters are still descending to the planet. Most are destroyed by the defenses, but too many still break through and makes it into the atmosphere.*
Well, I don't trust him and he doesn't trust me, so I doubt much of anything in this fight is gonna be "planned" xD
Yeah, like we have always done? >.<
Geez do I really need to make a essay under all rules to ensure people doesn't have to think?
Who the hell want to actually fight for every city, airport, facility, trench and foxhole on an entire planet? Lol
I know :P
I've already told you I am willing to help you out a little. Since I am taking a less active participation in conflicts I have no reason to be partial in the affairs of my commanders. Not even IC, as a Sith I can't care less about my commanders losing, if they fail, then they deserve their fate xD
But I can't help you as GM, because that would require me to let my Character die or become and inactive NPC.
Only if the truth can be found. :P
"Psst!" Are you actually trying to convince him that we are a good Empire, because no matter the truth. He won't believe it :P
Ariel@ History is written by the victor.
There's a cold hard truth for ya :P
*The Corsair sends out their remaining ships are starts to board the Gondorian vessels but find them self outnumbered with so few ships left. The Gondorian Auxiliaries comes up from below and starts fending off the boarders.
On the city walls, my men stand ready and waits for the enemy move and it comes just as predicted. The Corsairs try to take back the wall and comes in strong numbers. But on the stairs to the top of the wall, their numbers mean little and the Gondorian Infantry holds them back.
The Archers on the wall uses the height advantage to rain death upon the Corsairs, killing hundreds while the clash against the Gondorian Shieldwalls.
While the Line Infantry holds the stairs, the 4000 Auxiliaries have circled around to the gate and the Line Infantry on the walls open it for them. They rush in the gate and attack the Corsair forces from behind while they are trying to take back the wall, causing a panic and rout.
The Line infantry joins the Aux's and move into the city. The Archers move on the rooftops and jump from building to building and picks of stragglers or support the infantry on the ground in larger engagements.
1000 Aux's are left to cover the main road into the square.
The Army arrives at the city square and finds a Corsair rallying point, and a 6000 strong army. A Large battle breaks out in the square and many of the side passages. Archers on the rooftops keep the enemy pinned while the infantry advances.
OOC: Someones in a bad mood. Lol
A) No one said anything about following lore to the letter.
B) Didn't I say Angmar was part of the reason I wanted to restart the RP? :P
C) Bitching breeds bitching, and I wasn't bitching. So where did this come from? xD
*GandaLf enters the Realm of Lothlorien and proceeds to the meeting*
OOC: I have an exam in the morning, but fater that I have time for the meeting.
Wait. I'm King? Well, I guess its time to clean up stuff. Also maybe getting some more realistic unit numbers into place.
Btw. since I'm a lore fanatic. I'll have to be Aragorn, sigh... I had my sights on Gandalf. Ah well.
PS. I don't know about you guys, but I think it would be better if we restarted this RP. It seems awfully messy right now xD
Values for the Core worlds needs to be higher than most other planets since the Core is very heavily populated and home to many of the Galaxy's largest industries.
From a quick look, I would also say that Yavin should have same income as Korriban since it have no real population. Same with Hoth.
I think we should focus on the Main capital worlds and region only, and not too much on the various planets in these regions. It would be more manageable in terms of balance. Space lanes could give a bonus of maybe 2000?
I can give more feedback later. Going to a birthday party. Cya :P
Just in case the GM's forgot, it is they who must manage the economics.
But I don't mind it being involved.
OOC: MOUNTAIN GIANTS!?!Oh dear Darwin... Keep calm... Isengard and Mountain Giants... Keeeeeep calm.
Okay, lets do this! :P
Yeah. Now you got work to do! Lol
Lucky for you, most things have been sorted out. :P (I think)
Fine: Sab3r dies alone and you get to beat up your fleet ramming into a cliff wall. Happy?
But you are going to use the fleet that is already there. The move Adenn made is still valid. You'll use the fleet specified.
You're still at Malachor, so you can't.
OOC: We have been using these (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Crystal_Gravitational_Trap) for Months now, all mando'es knows this.
IC: The cloaked ships have already been detected and bombers have been on standby, they quickly move in and destroys the ships before they can take out any of the Imperious class.
The enemy front line is starting to faulter. The Imperious class clearly outmatch the enemy front line forces.
The starfighters sent out to guard the capital ships fend of the bombers that is attacking the Scythe's who are now penetrating deep into the Mandalorian fleet and causes havoc.
The entire fleet is now pressing their advance and the majestic class turns their attention to the Tsad's, firing back at them.
I quickly regain my balance and get on my feet. I see the hostile jedi coming up the hole in the roof. I concentrate and send a massive force push towards them.
The Witch king was defeated by a woman and a hobbit with a simple steel swords.
Only if I order them. I have no intentions of buying fannon stuff.
OOC: Well, the only logical explantion for the rest fo us doing nothing would be us having left. But yes.
Sigh.. I even brought an EMP, But did I get to use it? Noooooo.... >.<
You bet you are. Who do you think most people would blame for this besides you? Since the NGR have taken you in, the punishment we gave you is pretty much nullified and it lets you get away with this easy.
*As I watch from a side corridor, a Sith officer walks down the hall with two Shadow Guards I silently follow them to the Hanger. When we arrive I move closer to the rear guard and as we move past a prison cell I grab the guard, throws him into the cell and locks the door. The other one hear some of it and looks back on me.
"What are you doing? Keep an eye out for the Jedi instead of slacking around!"
If the Shadow Guard was angry, I could not see it due to the helmet.I then move past him and we continue to follow the Commander through security and onto the shuttle. As we board and the commander warm up the engines, I force push the Shadow Guard out of the shuttle, takes the Commander in the neck and trows him out after the guard. I close the ramp and start up the shuttle. As the ship moves out the hanger I remote detonate the bomb and quickly enters hyperspace*
OOC: Well, I'm surprised you didn't even try to turn me xD Kinda expected it of you. Lol
Well, had you stayed in your cell I could have provided some straight from the Outer Rim! Too late now... Unless you tell me where you are...
Ori@ Did you delete the other pic where I suggested some things? because I can't find my comment.
Anyway, still thinks Kamino would make a much better Capital than Gamor and are you sure Naboo can't replace Shadda- whatever?
Oh and aren't Bespin and Hoth too close to each other for the purpose of being capitals?
I am sure the Jews have forgotten all about he Holocaust too and now they are grateful for inspiring them to go back to their homeland Israel. >_>
I am with Ten on this, Your logic fails miserably.
Also, we would have come to help them but the Sith took over before our diplomats had even started up their ships. I know the masses are sometimes incredibly naive, but memory isn't known for fading so quickly.
Good work Ori!
You have too much time on your hands, but nicely done! :P
*The Silentium forces bombard the defensers with everything they have, a fleet of ship move towards the Vernichtung and destroy everything in their path. Other fleets target the asteroids to make room for advancing
In the meantime more ships contniue to arrive.*
*The Silentim spin up their hyperdrives and move out of the system*
*The Silentium speeds up towards the defense and also launch drones against the defense force.*
Sab3r have resumed to play Battlefield Lol. I really wonder why Chief-of-State made him Admiral. *Cough* I'll get him over Xfire..
I'll send Sab3r a message over Xfire.
OOC: I always though they were like the Ancient drones from Stargate. Just bigger more powerful, although not able to piece shields.
And my main ships are within firing range of your shipyards. (I guess)
IC: The Silentium rear forces from up with the main fleet and support the attacks. Most fo the fleet is still focusing on the Amndalorian defenses and anti-fighter corvettes and frigates.
The sphere ships unleashed their full firepower on the mandalorian capital ships*
OOC: Well, if you both have to eat then I am going to watch Firefly. Be back in 20 mins. or so.
FINE!!! xD *Goes to bed 10 minutes after I said i would*
jester@ No, others need time to see these events too.
Or I could get mean and just self-destruct it?
Phew! I thought I was the only one having disturbing thoughts while trying to sleep! Lol
Don't get me wrong, I believe in a higher power in the universe. But to me, the bible and all the other god related things people kill each other over is not something I would ever put my faith in. Did you know that they have found a old cave with over 100 Different bibles that date back to the Roman Empire? All in 1 cave. So, one have to ask; How much in the bible is actually gods will, and how much is the will of church/man?
Also, I am quite sure that many of the things in the bible is written as were they RULES. They may have been guidelines. But in the Danish version of the bible, I am 100% sure that they are written down like were they rules and not guidelines. :P
Recommended or above. That should say it all Lol. My GPU is actually THE recommended card xD
Maybe, but Kaminoans are very good at what they do, not like those fast grown Spaarti clones, you can just as well construct droids Lol
Imo, the Mandalorian fleet have many ships performing the same roles, but they are not overpowered.. Yet :P - Although I think I read somewhere about "Ultra heavy concussion missiles" - Wut? xD
As for the Valiance, it might be a bit OP, but AK is one of the few people who I think can accept that it can be lost. For low leave it up to AK if he wants to cut a bit down.
Of course you are welcome to present a suggestion for a rule about it, we all just have to agree.
I don't agree with it on how Europeans see America. We don't see "Texas" we see yellow "M" xD
HAHAHAHA. I knew it!
I think you can ;) But mostly because we have a lack of Senators.
Ori'Verda, you have to be a part of GA to be a Senator.
Nice work at the header!
If you had not interferred we could have taken out every major fleet they had and effectively ended the war. But you just HAD to interferre in that.You have already admittet that you did it for the Glory.
I could say the same about TNEL Lol
How is that a fact? LOL
It's an oppinion..
"The 4 awesome sith began operations on the planet by capturing wookies and beasts and killing locals. The encounter lasted I say 6-7 minutes since the Sith Empire has fast operations."
Seriuosly? If a record is to be made, let it at least be written from a neutral point of view!
Don't trust everything that is in these articles. They are pro Sith and therefor written to undermine the Jedi viewpoint.
That or they need some seriuos editing..
They are not apart of the Rp thing we got going, so it's just the Jedi Order vs Sith Empire right now.
Listen Johnyboy. You think it's though that you don't start out with an impressive fleet that could easily lay waste to an entire sector and make short work of almost any other fleet?
These fleets combined alone outnumber the AoL many times and we have survived on tactics alone. The AoL is VERY moddest compared to these fleets and yet we don't complain about it. We try to improve our chances by honest means (Not that there is anything honest about war). I'm sure the Sith will give you the fleet you want if you work for it.
Black looks best Imo :P
Omg! It's huge!
Omg... Can't wait!!!!
OH MY GOD! That's awesome work guys!
