In the future where megacorps seek profit, private armies can destroy entire worlds, space pirate are real, galactic empires arise, terraforming of entire planets is now, entire planets revolt, and more.A group sets out to be led by you. Whether in mighty ship or settling upon a world to call home. There are others like you constantly pushing out and away for whatever reason. Whether to avoid the harsh grip of the more civilized spaces, to start anew, a need for freedom, greed, hunger for power or whatever it is. You while far away and out there are NOT alone. Others have had similar awakenings, aliens lurk, monsters creeps, zombie peoples eagerly follow, nightmares follow. and more.Whether your wildest dreams come to haunt you or nightmares become real. That is for you to discover, realize, and live. Whether you survive it is a different matter entirely.So hopefully may you weep tears of joy, enjoy painful smiles, sweet victory and bitter defeat. Only to rise again stronger then ever to pave the way forward.Of that i cannot promise but i can at least hope it is so.

With the governments of the world fully backing every was set and they headed out to a cold planet. luckily for them they had the tech to build a bunker and stock it with the tech they will need to fight the enemy head on. Some say they are like good bandits able to loot the enemy's tech and make it their own. But in turn is a mix of things. A good team of researchers, Engineers, and solders working as one unit. They fight the enemy take their tech, Study it, adapt and keep going. With hopes after the war is over they can use this to build on new worlds.

>>33765590What's the nomad HQ's bonus?Otherwise water world or marsh world
>>33765652Nomad. Let home world it up and move place to place upgrading our ship.
>>33765590Yeah, Nomad sounds cool
Rolled 22, 71, 44, 63, 10 = 210>>33765680Nomad HQ bonus ONLY happens if you choose one of the colonist types who has the option.As in they especially thrive in it.
>>33765732So I guess we'll go with some forbidden water world ruins then, and awaken Cthulu.
>>33765652HQ: NomadFluff: Quantum Data Solutions is a small, private corporation specializing in finding solutions to both technological and engineering challenges. They've taken contracts from both governments and megacorps, and have a reputation for providing results without worrying too much about things like morality. Their home base is a massive starship named Contemplation of Infinity, filled to the brim with the most advanced research tools available. Recently, Argyle has started shifting from simply fulfulling contracts to pursuing goals of their own.
>>33765774Er, Argyle should be QDS in that last paragraph. And wait, which colonist types have access to nomad, then?
Rolled 89, 66, 66, 50, 13 = 284>>33765774Nomad HQ is only available to originally two civ types.So many votes flowing in here making things tricky. Not used to this gonna have to change things around compared to the usual.Anyway for you cultist voters what forbidden lore do you want?
>>33765825What forbidden lore IS there?
Rolled 32, 97, 49, 2, 74 = 254>>33765825While other civs may choose nomad as well they don't get the HQ bonus.Surprised over the interest of think tank and cultist.Ah that reminds me think tankers need to choose their tech specialty as well.Sorta of required.
>>33765774I love it all
>>33765774I will back this.
Wait how many Civs are going on in this thread? God this is a clusterfuck
>>33765845What tech specialties are available?
>>33765845If cultist technomancy. If think tank AI fighters the work as ship raid units and can drill thru hauls.But I hope nomads wins.
>>33765825Which two civs can use Nomad HQ, then?
>>33765869One it's right now a vote for which we will be playing.
>>33765942If that's the case, think tank already won a while ago.

>>33765825Blessed by a strange being, the former researchers had their minds opened by the glory of his light. They follow him now, to this water world. Utilising the power of the mind that was given to them.Calling forth divine powers that are unequalled, each cultist was a weapon in itself. Although each and individual one could not by itself cause anything great, once they had gathered together, many great things can become possible.Many continue to attempt to enlighten themselves further to his light, broadening their minds and psionic powers. Utilising this method, one may become extremely powerful, but some whisper of the humanity lost from it.Each day the cultists are blessed by the world's sun, and each day they give thanks to him, singing with their minds for the first hours of dawn. Calling to him, praising him, yearning for him.Although small and weak now, they have foreseen futures of great cities covering the entire world, each member of this great civilisation works towards that future. Together, as one.
>>33766001Fuck no psionics. Can't we pick something basic and survivable ONCE

>>33765971Ok, so I guess that QDS fluff is worthless then. Lets try again>Think Tank>Dead World>Speciality: Man Machine Interfaces>FluffSingular Solutions was created for one purpose by a rather eccentric megacorp CEO: find a way to create immortals. They failed in their initial mission. However, the work they did led to numerous breakthroughs in Man/Machine interfaces, allowing for entire new sectors of the economy to form. Almost overnight, people gained the capability of directly accessing the quantum internet binding civilization together. Machines could be controlled as if they were an extension of the pilot's body. Massive systems could be wired into a single coordinators brain, allowing for incredible leaps of efficiency. Now SS, flush with resources, begins to move towards new, grander goals.
Rolled 87, 66, 66, 72, 60 = 351>>33766108xcom makes me sweat my system isn't nearly on such a detailed level yet.so there are a bunch of votes...but not the required details.Oh come on the details aren't even that much.I keep things simple.
>>33766199Is my think tank writeup missing something?
Rolled 60, 29, 77, 89, 8 = 263>>33766216Yours no.just everything else.bah. Votes rush in but don't stick around.
>>33766199Well it can be xcom mass combat. Just want to keep the team work, commander and Especially the studying of alien tech.
>>33766140I'm good with this. Though the other think tank writeup sounded more fun.
>>33766140Let's do it man machine, unless we can fly away on a ship.
>>33766140Our first task with these guys should be to build a mothership and wire it through a single person's head. Yeah, I just want to play homeworld, sue me.
Rolled 14, 86, 10, 72, 93 = 275>>33766199ah so many votes for think tanks and cultists but no votes for their specialty.what is even the point in that case...should i change the specialties so you don't get a choice or something?Would that make it easier? I figured that would be the entire point the ability to choose your specialty effect. Others are just automatic or background after all.is somehow voting for a homeworld or HQ too difficult?I hadn't even gotten to the damned hero options yet or adviser in this case.Fine just make up your minds already. From what i can tell cultist and think tanks were winning well more like tied anyway but they lack votes in other key areas. A third runner up could potentially come to snap it up if it has the support.
>>33766382Would this be possible, QM? Starting as a planet-based civ but eventually creating our own homeworld-esque mothership?
Rolled 27, 86, 33, 95, 47 = 288>>33766502certainly.Surprised no one went classic colonist especially for the nomad lovers who changed their minds when they realized they couldn't get the special HQ for it.A lot of the other stuff has ties.
>>33766539In that case, I'll vote for >>33766140 just to get us started.
>>33766500Maybe it was same faging or they are just very indecisive. But if it's not to late we got man machines or nomads.
>>33766539it looks like we have three civ writeups, though the first one doesn't work with your rules about nomads. Maybe just give a simple voteoff between the two others?
Rolled 12, 69, 62, 46, 8 = 197>>33766571I suspected samefagging votes don't normally come in such rapidly and in the case of the extra stuff the ideas would of flowed in instead of halting.hence samefaggotry.>>33766606which three are those?And the one with nomads just means you DON'T get nomad HQ. You still have to choose another though as it will be stored within your ship.
Rolled 38, 12, 67, 20, 85 = 222>>33766634Everything else will work though just enjoy not having your HQ bonus until you settle.
>>33766634I see>>33765774>>33766001>>33766140As the three writeups.
>>33766655I like the idea of us doing the think tank and building a home world-esk ship.But it's late for me I hope it works out.
Rolled 59, 19, 10, 65, 97 = 250>>33766659hm...i like fluff but its a pain when their exact specs are not offered makes me have to guess.So much shit is fucking tied i hate it when that happens. Could force hybrid but then that nullify certain things and bring up other problems.Argh.>>33766719same here i know this can take awhile will probably peak in later on to see how determination is going.
>>33766777I'm really not sure what you're looking for. The MMI writeup there has at least 4 votes in support.
Rolled 68, 41, 78, 87, 32 = 306>>33766777Is stuff tied...could force hybrid, but problems.Alas strong suspicions of samefagging.Could also try that make basic with single sponsor...while limiting certain options could also grant many possibilities.basically...sponsor in combat vessel guarding colonial vessel. Is unaligned.problem is stats would be off and when aligning don't gain beginning personnnel.unless...That could work.Would give time to make up minds.hm basically sponsor in personnel ship able to make alliances and purchase people/things from colonial ship. thus allowing you to pick and choose.Would require sponsor(avatar) being fleshed out, but would allow picking and choosing.Sadly HQ options would be Nomad, Packaged Base, Sponsored TownshipBest of all worlds yes?Only need sponsor which I could provide options for or write in.here you go additional choiceSponsored: Solo character who may make certain 'purchases' acquiring items. Default is equivalent to government but beware for every point you choose to increase it you must decrease something else or multiples by an equivalent amount.Initial purchase represents sponsors initial investments.sponsor base choices>Torn Veteran>Wretched Rogue>Twisted Genius>Rich Kid>Write inFeel free to modify or fluff out the above templates as well as write in serves basically to make it entirely up form the ground up. Be ware that it must be somewhat reasonable or have quality enough fluff that i am willing to allow it. Would still need homeworld or ship based chosen.Will also need to determine special...which will be bonus avatar hero.This is something I normally wouldn't allow so consider it carefully.

Rolled 30, 45, 78, 93, 11 = 257>>33767023have a feeling I may regret this...tampering modification for base stat btw is 5 points max up or down.Or you could just leave it as default would be easier.>>33767053its only another option.I am all about options.
>>33767023>Rich kid>Terraformed worldI don't understand the avatar thing but we want to specialize In making badass toys out of alien tech I suppose. So our avatar would need to be a >fixerFixes what needs fixing...by any means.
>>33767111Notes on >fixerHe doesn't have a mechanical background or a military one...He just knows a little bit about everything, but more importantly, he knows everybody. What ever you need, he's got a guy. He was one of the first colonists on the planet, and he claims to have met everybody on world. Literally every last person, and maintained contacts! Any groups that come on world to pick up resources, he knows at least the ones that have been around. He is beloved by 99% of everybody out thereUnfortunately he is old old man blam syndrome
>>33767437Bump up the volume! Dance! Dance!
>>33767053This is an incredibly difficult game to get the hang of for newbies especially.>>33766500>>33767023I don't know, it was only me and one other guy last night was just me saying how great magic was against technology (stopping tanks shells and the tanks insantly and melting them to ash with your fingers) but I think those guys were newbies who just voted cultists but didn't realize there was a lore specialty they had to choose or that they had to.As for votes not normally coming in rapdily, it's probably because of the sudden influx of newfags who thought this was a new quest but didn't realize it's the same one that's been going on for ages.
>>33769154As for me, I like the think tank ideas that are being thrown around here but am tired of chipping in fluff for civs that don't really go so well anyway nor does fluff seem to really help a civ. I'll back think tank but will need time to come up with anything good.
>>33769154On that note, I wonder if one of the things that makes it hard for new people to join is to recognize that this isn't like a normal quest and isn't continually run and then stops running after a few consecutive hours of activity and then quitting after the day.This quest while on average slower than others allows for prolonged gaming, you can throw in an idea, go do something else for an hour or so and come back and see if that idea made it through or someone else thought of something smart. Likewise a thread can last for a whole week even after OP goes to bed we keep it bumped and continue tomorrow.
>>33769290Basically if an anon throws in an idea and after an hour or more it doesn't happen and the thread doesn't begin they give up and leave, when if they just stayed and kept pushing and fluffing out their civ it would eventually happen.So it depends if you really have the perseverance and interest to dedicate time and effort into this civ, which might be fine for old players but for people who never seen this game before it's like "hm, why should I suddenly write a long paragraph or two about a neat civ Idea I'm not sure I care to flesh out other than play, and then spend time pushing for it in a game I haven't played yet or don't really know much about."On top of the other unwritten rules about civ choices that aren't evident for new guys either (Such as Cultists requiring a fluffed up and chosen lore, or this new Sponsor idea).Another thing Genie is that the way you structure your words might appear to be cryptic and infathomable to people who don't have the context to realize something like >>33767023 "oh he's debating whether the hybrdization of the civ choices would be a good idea or a bad idea, and now he's proposing we get a sponsor who can provide funding to our cause"
>>33769290>>33769395I think that sums it up nicely.
>>33765443It also doesn't help Genie sometimes you need to cater to new players. For example saying something basic like "Choose a civ to play and pick a single HQ from their possible list" how would someone know you're only supposed to pick on HQ and these aren't all part of the package?
Okay, so that big thing I'm working on I want to post but I have to be away till at least the end of the day because work which sucks.It's a moderately fluffed out civilization with branched out civ choices for all the civ options and reasons I think we should play in these planets.
>>33773015I would say that sounds good. But got to see it first. I still like a nomad style(Homeworld) or XCOM, taking the fight to the enemy.
>>33769154Genie's quests are pretty under the radar for those who are long time devotees, i think it's less that newbies 'realize it's the same one that's been going on for ages' and more that they come in expecting a bullshittingly simple creation process, and then are unwilling/unable to be creative about civ creation in the way Genie likes.
Rolled 52>>33778627I think we got use to each other's ways and built up to this. Maybe once they go threw a few rounds they will pick up on it and grow into it.
Rolled 42>>33767023Should we let this die or do you have plans for this Civ QM?
>>33779817Thread survival bonus doesn't help when we keep on picking civs with little to no potential to survive. Let's look at our last 3 civs>Bandits from the future in fantasy landANY choice would have been stronger than this. Any modern faction other than bandits would have some reason to go into fantasy land, except bandits. >dryad/undead fantasy dudes Dryads and undead? Really? How did genie even let an inconsistency that fuckhuge through?>cultist/zealotsThey were awesome and survivable! So what did we do? Fucking abandon them.Seriously, can we have one group without an off the wall gimmick that survives and we play for a while?
>>33780173Guanyin man, guanyin.We can always go back to cultists.
Rolled 13>>33780173Yeah the bandit were a odd one. But their raiding skills did and could of payed off more.It a different world/lore and they worked together. Hell even the Dryad helped heal the death knight.We are trying new things for a bit. We can still go back to them. Genie just wanted to test things and it a good break from the same old. Yeah, V101 and the Psi farmers. For this one I think the think tank has a chance, Nomads can if we learn to fall back when we need to and I really believe the XCOM style one can with our tactics.
>>33780404I just want some god damned paramilitary/think tank, making fun toys for our dudes to kill with. Is that so much to ask?
>>33780894Nope, But I think government would be better for over all effect. We would just need to make use of training pods and officer schools.
>>33781002For some reason I don't think the training pods are going to be like "Woah, I know Kung foo" but sure it's an avenue we need to explore
>>33781083They're for the tactics on the battle field and team work building. Probably with new tech they could help master martial arts. ...! Or mecha training.
Nearly done with the civs, just need to finish up Megacorp idea.
Rolled 98, 4, 81, 43, 8 = 234hm yes I thought the creation was simple enough but apparently I need to reconsider and redo some things.
>>33782872Well, i'm almost done with my big Civ thingy so I'll post it and see how it goes. Even if it doesn't have anything playworthy, hopefully at least it fluffs up the universe a bit more.
Brood, In Space!
“For Emperor and Dominion.”These words reverberated throughout the collective psyche of all citizens of the , though perhaps in a more literal sense than at first glance. Ruling from their capital planet of Acerbus, their interstellar empire stretches vast distances with many, many colonies among the limitless stars.Once the old Acerbus Kingdom, and then the Republic, the Dominion was formed through the cuthroat, and unstoppable political machinations of one Supreme Minister Valkemeen, who not only rose to an astonishing height of power rapidly but completely remade the Republic into starflung Empire in his image. Perhaps one such explanation for how one man could attain such power are the rumors of him being a powerful master of the Dark-Psi, and stories spread about him shooting death from his fingertips. To no small degree of credit must also be given to Valkemen's right hand man, the Viscount Dareth, himself also an acolyte of the Dark-Psi and a cyborg, who has thwarted every single assasination attempt and brutally taken out all the enemies of the Emperor. His reign has been one forged in blood and fire, but nonetheless, under Valkemeen's rule Acerbus has seen unprecedented expansion and advancement the likes of which has not been seen, and public faith in the Empire has never been higher. The ruthlessness of their methods of assimilation and domination, taking the new races and technology they find and bending to their will, are a contributing factor to their ever growing size. It should be said though, that their reach tends to escape their grasp, for they have many far flung colonies and operations across this galaxy, and these are but a brief list of those:
>>33784284-----Name: Governorship of Planet Elum IType: Government RemnantBase Type: Garrisoned ComplexPlanet: Terraformed – Planet Elum ISponsor: Write in -Viceroy AlexandranGovernment Remnant Speciality: Paramilitary – All forces are automatically, or at least eventually, trained as per Dominion mandatory military service------Fluff: Planet Elum I, closer to the edge of Dominion home regions, was chosen for Terraformation due to it's ideal location as both in proximity to its sun and its planetary location as central hub for intersterllar travel and resupply. Now that the terraformation process is complete, the colonization and securing of the planet is in order, as such, Viceroy Alexandran of the Dominion has been personally charged with overseeing the logistic and infrastructural support of a budding colony on the new planet, who's expense costs are rather extravagant.This colony is constantly being flooded to the brim with new settlers and population growth due to the hospitableness of the planet, all ready to farm, build, and if need be, fight to expand the Dominion as any loyal citizen serving Emperor Valkemeen ought to do. Per Dominion standards, all able bodied citizens are to undergo mandatory training for military service. With patience and perserverance, it was hoped Elum would become yet another Hiveworld in the Dominion supplying the ever growing needs and soldiers.
>>33784346-----Name: Hyrelian Free CorpsType: ParamilitaryBase Type: Military BasePlanet: Dead – Onyx VISponsor: Torn Veteran – Commander Uriah-----Fluff: The Planet Hyrelia is a harsh inhospitable world, some say worse than dead, who's hardened citizens churns out some of the Dominions most elite and fanatically loyal soldiers. Once but long ago, the Dominion waged terrible war to conquer the fledgling hypermilitarized nation, the Hyrelians inflicting horrible horrible losses on the Dominion , until at last both sides near the brink of exhaustion the Dominion so impressed by their vigor and skill granted them complete autonomy and full reparations in exchange for their undue loyalties. Threatened with total annihilation, and in thought of the future of their people, they agree. They now serve as some of the Dominions best forces. In fact, they now serve as one of the Dominions most fanatically loyal forces. An explanation might be found in Hyrelian quote, who once said “it was the Dominion who bathed us in blood and fire and brought out our military finesse to perfection. And for that, we thank them.”Their society who was even more so engrossed in martial honor than the Dominion was, the terrible war on them only enhanced it, and military pride embedded into their cultural psyche is unmatched. Hyrelians learn how to strip and repair a beam-rifle and pass the trial to hunt a thorlax before they learn to read and write, and even their women undergo military training that would be the equivalent of what the average male Dominion trooper elsewhere would experience. On the dead planet of Onyx VI, the Dominion has set up a military research and training facility. On the harsh dead world of Onyx VI, Hyrelians continue their intense training with suit combat in inhabitable locations and production and integration of both old and new technologies at their disposal.>Con't
>>33784373The Hyrelians distinctive feature is their constant wear of breathing masks and glowing sight boosting visors that were vital to their survival on their homeworld. That being said Hyrelians traditions of being a small elite and coordinated force, combined with the extreme inhospitableness of a dead planet, would normally mean a critically low population. However, the Dominions ever present need for more highly trained and coordinated forces and the general makeup of their culture provides for a few measures to boost their numbers. Hyrelian's are consider themselves all children of the war god, as such it is not uncommon for them to bring their families to central bases on tours of duties. Normally this would be a sign of soldierly unprofessionalism however for them this is different, instead it only serves to boost them and their progeny by having their children grow up in a militaristic background. In addition, from across the dominion soldiers who prove themselves on the field of battle and show a degree for combat and leadership are brought to bases such as this one for further training into more elite forces as well as incentives to spread their genes and raise further soldiers.They are sponsored by Veteran Commander Uriah, a Hyrelian himself, who sees this as an opportunity to expand Hyrelia in the name of the Dominion.>Suggest possible Hybridization with Think Tank weapons developers

Everything from new types of energy guns, stealth or strength enhancements embedded into suits, to jetpacks and extreme thermal survivability suits, you will often see it and such other similar Dominion think tanks attached to Paramilitary or standard Army forces to provide both research on current weapons and potential improvements.When soldiers encounter a thick acidic goo that stops them in their tracts, it's up to them to develop a suit strong enough to withstand it. When troops are faced with heavily armored foes that rip right through them, their job is to see about suit mechanical enhancements to boost infantry strength to resist and overcome, as well as special ammunition and tactics to pierce their thick hides. This degree of flexibility and ideal adaptability to whichever military force aquires them makes them both an excellent producer of new weapons designs for Megacorporations or Paramilitary to produce and use.Their other speciality is the assimilation of xenos technology and strange new elements and energies and applying it in potential military usage.In particular, the one on Onyx VI is sponsored by Dr. Krout Hoffman, Minister of Infantry Weapons Technologies, a prominent member of the Hoffman dynasty which is a leading weapons developer for the Dominion, and heavily works in tandem with the military.>Note, this is a suggested and preferable Think Tank for possibly Hybridization with above Paramilitary.

In particular, this Research Facility was placed in a Volcanic planet, which though provides a boon to warfare and manufacturing, would hinder the research of any other race. But not this Think Tank.Their goal is to develop countermeasures and tools to prevent the destruction that often befalls so many other colonies. The lack of available water and food in such molten conditions is solved via Water Manufacturing via water synthesis of hydrogen and oxygen found in natural gas. Advanced Hydroponics with use the light and heat found in lava pools. Hyper cooling devices which function via entropic acceleration to turn even a deep pool of lava into a sturdy stone foundation. Special undergroud detectors, sensors, shields, and turrets. Everything that could cause ultimate disaster for a base in extreme conditions, from lack of life support to danger, it's up to them to develop countermeasures and weapons.They are sponsored by the Minister Azarius, a fellow man of thought and ingenuity, some even call Genius, who firmly believes the success of such research as carried out by these Think Tanks are vital to the survival of the Dominion across the stars, as well as his own personal reputation.>Suggest possible Hybridization with Paramilitary

Someitmes it's not enough for a Prince to just own his own nation or inherit one of the largest family fortunes. And for the ultra wealthy elite of the Dominion, ruling over the lower classes like gods, sometimes, they want to own their own planet.Prince Kassan has just “purchased” his own Ice Planet of Ischa all to himself. The only problem is he doesn't even control it. So rather than go through the trouble of dominating it himself, he spread some money here and there and got together a ragtag group of colonists itching for a new life and a second chance. Promising them to cater to their needs when he can, their only job is to set the place up for him. The Planet Ischa is less rarely known for it's various hot springs and mountains, but that truly is all Kassan cares for. His goal is to one day relax sipping coconut milk in a hot spring under a glass dome while blizzards rage all around, but to do that it's up to these colonists to simply survive, much less relax.

And what do you do when you have far too many criminals, thieves, military traitors, deserters, and above all, pirates, threatening to boil over your prison systems?You solve both problems at once.The idea was that bandits, being be far more capable of looting and using captured technology and surviving independent of military supply, would perform excellent here to disrupt the enemy and take over their facilities. The Dominion is known to have thrown entire Penal Colonies and Mega Prison populations here, promising free amnesty to all once the planet has been taken over. Now these once idyllic oceans where utopian floating cities dwelled are plagued by some of the most vicious pirates and brigands ever seen, and their numbers only keep growing. Using the technology and resources stolen against them they've done what entire fleets of Dominion ships could not.To this effect, notorious pirate lord and “Captain” Zack Barrow has like so many other bandit lords and thieving kings, not passed up this great opportunity and has invested in his own personal penal colony all to himself. Now it's up these freed prisoners to see if his investments will pay off.

Here they are trained in the ways of the Will, the invisible presence and mover that all Dominion psionics attribute themselves to. This particular training trains in Telekenesis, using the Dark-Psi to lift massive objects or stop bullets and energy in their tracts with great shields either as single servants or even greater power as a group effort. In addition, the traditional arts of Laserblade combat are revived and exemplified in all those who manage to survive the training here. The express purpose of this is to train out more Knights of the Dominion.They are, like other Psyker training facilities, sponsored by their own respective member of Dark Church, this one has Inquisitor Lorn. It's up to him to handle the ongoing continuation and proliferation of this facility as it takes in more and more Psykers brought from the farthest regions of the Dominion.Such facilities are noted to often work closely with the Acolytes of the Dark-Psi, the branch who deals directly with the cult of the Dark-Psi and delving into its secrets, and it isn't unknown for hybrid facilities to be formed in addition to pure psyker training facilities.

Often a popular place for retired soldiers and servants of the Empire to call home, they know their shit and though they aren't always the best supplied the Temperate region of Juliet III often provides. Most have been born here and they are practically natives to the region.These people now find themselves Sponsored by Retired Commander Galleghan, who considers it a nice light hobby after such long and arduous service in the Dominion Army and retiring with full honors.But such continued existence is not fraught without danger at every turn.

>>33784625----Name: Evolutionary Deviacy and Xenos research facility #14Type: MutantsBase Type: Research ComplexPlanet: Ice – Tallorn IVSponsor: Write In – Dr. Dor'van, Sanctioned Mutant and former (defunct) Brood Father---Fluff: These facilities are where the undesirables, mutants, and xenos end up in the grand scheme of the Dominions plans for Galactic Domination. Here, instead of simply being purged and killed when found on their homeworlds, these mutants are given the chance to serve the Dominion and make something more of themselves. One the Icy World of Tallorn IV, these mutants must band together to both use their abilities towards their survival in both this planet and beyond, as their success could mean salvation for their misbegotten race. Indeed, should the mutants impress the Dominion with their abilities, their genes and children may be spared, even given their own home. Such tales of how a particularly rare brand of mutant who secreted juices that aided in human fertility ended up gaining their own terraformed and completely secured paradise world, drive these forgotten forward into making themselves greater than the sum of their parts.The population of such facilities, though always slow to increase, is always bolstered by the seemingly never ending flow of mutants and xenos as part of the Ethnic and Genetic purity programs of the Empire. Perhaps it is their luck that Dor'van, a former “Brood Father” and one of the beings who were so blessed by Dominion interest in boosting population, took sympathy upon them. He and his few kind had been granted near limitless resource to where they managed to mutate themselves to a point where they for all intents looked 100% human, and is a decently respected individual in the Dominion eschelon even for a mutant. He seeks to give to those other mutants the same chance that were given to him and his kind.

>>33784690---Name: Rathos III Automated Planetary Security SystemType: RobotsBase Type: Constructive CorePlanet: Terraformed – Ordon VIISponsor: Twisted Genius – Minister of Robotics and Borg Research Klyne---Fluff: Due to the nature of Terraformed Worlds still not being safe to invasion or unseen danger, the idea was proposed that directly after Terraformation a series of self-automated and regulating robots, capable of manufacturing more of their kind and expanding their jurisdiction, should precede colonization efforts by fully securing the planet.Several of these experiements are out there, including this one here on Ordon VII. The Rathos III Automated Planetary Security system is designed to allow robots the mining, manufacturing, and fighting abity to both expand and use natural resources to produce more robots in a self-sustained perpetual growth and development. These robots are charged with the complete domination and control of the Planet in the name of the Dominion. Once that has been achieved, colonization can begin now with the added benefit of a fully armed and automated protection force to bolster the normal Dominion Army and Local Planetary Defense. With a wide array of tools and technology and supplies of the planet at their disposal, it is hoped that the investement put into such units would not be in vain. The Minister of Robots and Borg Research Klyne himself is invested in this colony, although if it fails there are others to be looked to, so it is in the interest of these drones not to fail for their sake.----AAAAND done. Well, almost. Need to work on some kinda megacorp.

They all share the same setting but just different parts of it different dimensions if you will.This means exactly what it means.Crossovers can and do happen. Its downright expected in some cases but there tends to be certain stuff holding it back.This current sci fi setting...or i should say. Well for this specific one I was planning to avoid the pre fall climate. Meaning there are several stuff I could use a bits and pieces of setting I never quite unleashed. Now what to use...well I'll tell you.This galaxy was the milky way. Once upon a time long ago a certain human arose on earth and managed to take over founding the now infamous and long dead Terran Empire. Upon his supposed death the Empire became a republic and it grew. One day certain foes were encountered and by this time the Republic had grown fat and lazy. With opposition arising all over. However all were swept aside. The empire collapsed and humanity was on the run. It seemed humanity was doomed facing extinction.That was when the impossible happened.>>33786462>Not smart anonFUCK THERE'S ANOTHER ONE.TIMEZ TO TAKE DA EMERGENCY CODE BLUE CODE BLUE.
Rolled 37, 15, 82, 55, 92 = 281>>33786595The Terran Empire arose you see by the leader of mankind using the first super soldiers and robotic assistance including something...more.That one conquered the Earth before rapidly expanding into the Stars. The Empire grew strong under the leader but then one day it decayed. Suddenly the leader died and as it turned out that one had plans for it to exist long past death.The goal was simple become the necessary evil and forcefully kick start humanity. By whatever means necessary this as first done by making himself the enemy then after death encountering a nonhuman enemy.The military might the republic was quickly decaying as many of the old military forces were hated for being suppressors and thrown on to the edges...not to mention the best military tech was built in a such a manner as to only be availble to throne and due to ethical concerns were strictly gotten rid of by the now 'freed' peoples. the remnants of which and old guard were cast aside. Far in the fringes in wretched garrisons seemingly overlooking an enemy that never came. Inside meanwhile the Republic began to collapse due to infighting colonies were separating. That was when THEY came.From outside a force blasted through an inhuman force. The reckoning as many liked to call it. Somehow however against all odds those garrisons held for just long enough for a message to get sent out...along with proof.Suddenly humanity had an outside foe and so during the greatest times of humanity faced off against the enemy.
Rolled 94, 16, 79, 87, 5 = 281>>33786724And what a fight that was alas it did not seem enough. They poured in from everywhere overwhelming humanity. So a last ditch effort was prepared as men, women, and children bled. Alas they did not have enough time.That was when the impossible happened.The might and glory of the Empire arose once more. The last remnants of humanity's forces and those long forgotten. The leader of mankind itself reappeared after being 'dead' for so long. So there they committed their last stand before the eyes of those final ditch. Their last views was of the ragged scattered survivors and the forgotten holding off the tide while they finished up then escaping.or so the stories go.somehow humanity lived on due to failsafe of the long forgotten Empire. Though much was lost. The scattered survivors did however eventually pick themselves up.Or so that is one sci fi setting to explain it all.The other one is a bit more fanciful but still gritty.That one however seems to be what your after with your psionics and brood.Meaning...well enjoy heheh.Welcome to Pre Fall.Where super geniuses make the impossible possible, where artificial Intelligences aren't always out to get you, while Umbra was still a deadly threat, megacorps fighting bitterly over profits, governments fail to govern, and more.Welcome where the specials were being figured out and where being super was brought down to the common man. Here psi was believed to be magic and supers were being brought down to everyone's supposed level.Where death and greatness is optional.Here earth as you know it may have existed if it wasn't for certain...problems.or perhaps this is entirely alien?Maybe this is the same setting? Maybe this is but a piece of the bigger picture.
>>33786897>Maybe this is the same setting? Maybe this is but a piece of the bigger picture.Something like that, if I weren't so tired I could come up with a reasonable compromise.
Rolled 64, 82, 51, 75, 93 = 365>>33786897In this world or should i say galaxy...no perhaps universe?Here the fanciful is reality. Here mankind had far less qualms with biotech and with the help of supers made it to the stars far sooner then they should have(super geniuses AHOY). While certain problems weren't quite figured out and the singular fall has yet to occur.I shall now offer some examples of each of the forces.First with megacorpsUmbra: Legendary for their stealth tech and having connections everywhere also stealing everyone's shit their working on. You think what you got is special? Hope you enjoy an Umbra rip off. Hence allowing them to be competitive not by specializing or good invests oh no but reathe...by less their savory means even by Megacorp standards. these bastards are amazing with their damned shadowplays.Logibo: Legendary for their logistics of whom even other megacorps often use despite having their own...of course they never admit such things. People in this corp hate their lives due to LOGISTICS but everyone not loves them for being bros. To bad they can't seem to do that for each other.Morok: A company that rose to prominence for the sheer fact they were the first to realize and exploit how stinking rich you can get mining/harvesting in space. Even now their industrial tools and expansions are still legendary especially due to their fondness of small family businesses and prospectors. Of whom they sell to and create some of their prized Morok Busters capable of chowing through entire worlds or even sucking gas giants to death.Terko: A small company of lowly researchers and investors who began working on their objective long before it was even remotely thought possible. Because they had a dream. It took a long time slowly ever so slowly working their way up getting what they needed. when they made their reveal around the time others finally caught on they were called crazy and not possible. They were proven wrong as a world was terraformed.
>>33787102Adero too took to the stars right? Please? I made the fluff for you!Adero: Legendary for their energy based technologies and turning energy into materials, they outclassed the competition in terms of shielding, energy weapons, and fuel efficiency allowing their ships to reach places and reach them first where no other could.
>>33787186*their ability to start manufacturing simply by orbiting stars and absorbing solar radiation gave them an edge that, while nowhere close as productive as the resources of Morok or others, gave them a significant edge as others needed to set up and securing mining operations first.

Even now those lowly planets having long since each become powerhouses are very close as time wore on instead of distancing they became closer.Federal UnionAn odd federation where each of the smaller parts are free to govern themselves however they please. However they must all bow before the Federation as a whole. Noted for despite being incredibly different but still at least loosely united as a whole despite appearances. Worlds however are not granted freedom but instead must 'prove' themselves or are tied to another part.>>33787186There are limits. Umbra is so powerful due to be a bunch of thieving cheating sneaky assholes. corps hate the sons of bitches due to them constantly getting ripped off by them even from their 'specialties' as umbra is barely if ever only a few steps behind due to obvious reasons.Adero is known for their light related work in particular their fucking lasers. An Adero Laser Lance is fucking a big stick of pure fuck you and their laser batteries are like trying to dodge a searing light show coming from all directions.Some of their most 'infamous' weapons is the 'fireworks' codename light rocket.Basically a torpedo which upon detonation unleashes an entire lightshow of lasers hence quite like a fireworks display.No one thought such a thing could work so well until its sudden reveal. Not even Umbra saw it coming and had thought such a thing was doomed for failure hence never bothered ripping it off.Boy did they regret it especially considering how long adero maintained a monopoly making an utter killing.Thanks to those 'rockets' the usual problem of wasted torpedo was no longer a issue which alone was huge deal...plus it was just so damned pretty and awesome looking.They are also quite good at manipulating energy and in particular their specialty of light of course.

The royal house as in current top dog of the insane clusterfuck of politics is the only house that can really force them to play 'nice'(getting along is too much even for them to make happen) and deal with outside threats.United Peoples WorldsOriginally a legit democracy but anyone with half a brain will realize that they are in fact mob ruled and governed by the rich. An oligarchy in all but name. The people unfortunately tend not to realize this fact and those that do have the habit of ending up as settlers to escape it.Freed EmpireLed by the Empress or better known as a so called dictator. No one knows how such a mighty empire could arise in such a wartorn fucked up part of space but it did. Somehow got a bunch of military types and even pirates together who took entire worlds and actually viciously fought back against the countless Foes. Unbelievably started off on a lost nigh overrun backwater world deep in the core fringes.
Rolled 82, 49, 57, 32, 54 = 274>>33787527still waiting for those last two ideas anon.and feel free to rip off any of these as their just examples.Paramilitary2 public and 3 private.Public FirstUnited Federation ForcesMade up of the required offerings of forces to the federation as a whole they are an utter hot podge of forces...do not underestimate them. Having such a varying supply secures a disturbing amount of adaptability they literally have the perfect force for any problem. Now getting them there and supplied on the other hand may be problematic. To counter this the basic forces are offered a Federal standardized kitting hence ignoring what they may have been using specialized gear they may have been using before. This is only however true unless they are the elite in which case they are given with what they are most familiar and more.A federation individual member forces are expected to do at least one tour with the Union forces. The benefits besides partnership is possible special training that they may decide to take home with them creating the elite of their homes or if they stay gain the chance of becoming an elite of the whole Union. Many elites actually find themselves home before missing the Union gigs and thus reenlisting for that chance.Knight HousesIn the league military valor can earn one becoming a noble and thus a warrior caste was eventually formed. These members of both those proven or even raised up among them have become the elite of the Imperial League. Here these so called houses thrive in war and offer their elite services to whoever.While other houses are use to politicking thus often referred as cunningly brutal the knights have instead been referred to as brutally cunning for the sheer fact of their 'elaborate' bluntness of stabbing you in the face instead of the back. Often in open battle instead of poisoned drink.

Often their services are expensive and only the megarich can afford their flashy services but the rich can't help be tickled by just how 'proper' these fellows are and such a sign of status their services require. Often enough made up of bored rich kids specially got themselves prepped and old veterans who simply want to make a lot of money with top quality armaments.Neshalog Incorporated ArmyWhat happens when you not only have a bunch of soldiers be connected to each other mentally? Not only that but also that their 'fodder' forces are using a bunch of cheap bots and clones controlled from afar?Not fun that is what this unholy combo never seen before quickly proved utterly devastating. First comes the tide of 'gamer drones' which alone causes problems then you have a bunch of hive minded badasses slipping in through the chaos for that final fuck you.Merc Hive Sometimes you don't just want to hire so many guys or sometimes you like some variety. Sometimes you don't have enough guys to go out on your own or perhaps you like picking an choosing contracts.Merc Hive allows options and choices. Put out a request and see who bites variety is the spice of life as they say. So why not enjoy some variety of serves for a single request with details?Merc hive while being highly mixed and not quite solid forces offers a way to allow both the contractors of both sides to meet their expectations by their own choice. While other 'proper' companies like to retort their lack of policy and non homogenous nature. Its a cold hard fact that each and everyone of them has suffered at least one loss in both battle and bid to them.

>>33788390>It causes me much pain but in the end it always results in an interesting civ the players like.Usually Sometimes we feel really pressured and just vote on sometihng quick to start playing, and then later regret the lack of detail on choices we made
Rolled 83>>33765497>>33765443hmm, I guess if the choices are only Robots, Cultists and Think Tank that I'll go with Cultists. They are all in the end fairly similar, but cultists would probably have good roleplay potential.
>>33788426Kind of. Robots don't have to deal with flesh problems and need to build more to grow pop, Cultists get knowledge of special kind and Think tank get the use of higher level of tech and a special unit.
Rolled 90, 81, 79, 55, 55 = 360>>33788426>Not going for the fourth option>>33788471ignore the debating of different civs can go for ages over their merits and problems.so really choose whatever you want to play or sounds interesting.
Rolled 53>>33788503Theres a fourth option?
Rolled 59, 74, 75, 71, 91 = 370>>33788523The above starter listsalso a special sponsor one that would allow you to pick and choose a bit.
Rolled 34>>33788573Well in that case I'd rather pick bandits.
Rolled 56>>33788606mindless bump i guess.
>>33788606>Well in that case I'd rather pick banditsEw. Disgusting.
>>33788573See, every time we try to pick and choose it ends up blowing up in our faces with internal tensions.
>>33792501Anon gave us a nice list for the Dominion, if we do bandits we'll be doing Pirates on a hijacked sci-fi ship!We did do bandits last time though, so I'd prefer robots since we haven't done that in forever.
>>33792501Sometimes when we don't pick and choose and instead decide to be simple psionic farmers internal tensions still blow up in our faces!
>>33792575Need another hivemind one day.One the bright side, Bots should have less internal tensions, and bandits are fine as long as we getta da loot and women.Zealots have that nice unbreakable morale and zeal
>>33792611Yeah, but to counteract that (and we'll need to watch out for this with the Jungle Cultists) zealots are much more willing to fight and less willing to listen to reason over doctrinal differences.
>>33795499I think we're all on the same level concerning doctrine thoughBLOOD FOR THE PLANT GOD
>>33795845Given our proclivity towards sacrificing our own members (who we've sacrificed more of than anyone else up to this point) a rebellion isn't too far out of the question. If we actually invoke our power amplification for sacrificing our own though then that ought to serve to quieten any potential for a time ay least.
>>33795992I'd say we've sacrificed far more zombies than anything else, though we still have a ways to go.I am hoping that our unbreakable faith in the gods (I mean it IS the Prophet and very real will of the gods via cast lots that we select members for the sacrifice) will reduce the chance of rebellion.Certainly, making it a religious festival in addition to the survivors becoming chosen warriors of the gods while the fallen feed us all. My hope is our people celebrate the sacrifices as necessary and invoking the blessing and favor of our gods.
>>33796122In addition our many accomplishments more than just the zombie killing but also the death of the Corruption and establishment of the Stomach of the Jungle which shows we are favored by our gods.
I hope we will get to start today. I'm still down for the robots >>33784747. But I still hope for Nomads or Government (XCOM) >>33765589.But I guess we will see what happens.

>>33802312Heh, for once you actually get lucky Delim.This is a good omen.
Rolled 89>>33802312Hell yeah Delim
Rolled 4>>33802178"So let me get this straight Mizar you not only recruited a bunch of odd fellows. But you include bots with NO AI not even a bloody node, civilians with NO signed papers, AND fucking crazy cultists?""what is WRONG with you?""Well Richard you did a lovely job acquiring those soldiers and i DID handle the required support including tech.""I know I got those guys by claiming we were gonna kick some alien ass and take some worlds and you PROMISED to get us the stuff needed for reverse engineering. Tired as shit relying upon 'acquired' xeno and Super tech. About time we figured out to make our own damn toys and turn theirs against themselves.""Of which I did acquire the needed researchers, the bots are for maintenance, and those 'civilians' are to handle other tasks.""With JUST a engineering bay and not even a FUCKING Cored, xeno, Complex or shit even a bloody node for the AI bots?""Hey I couldn't get everything you have any idea how hard it is to get specific reverse engineering quarters with xeno focus? Or how expensive those bots were or hell even AI? I ain't made of fucking money you know it exhausted me just to get the damned ship and required personnel.""Now how about those civilians without their papers or those damned cultists?""Those cultists were interested in matters of the alien and those civilians we needed due to dumb bots.""which is YOUR fault for not even getting us bloody AI node.""Hey I had to cut corners to get this off the road.""...We only have basic vehicles and supbar gear.""Hey you wanted to have Xcom and besides that shit is expensive.""What the hell is Xcom?""Uh...shit. Something I heard about.">>33802274"When we're done refueling sure.">>33802237the Richard you know is of Clan Volker which is quite the notorious bunch. He has yet to prove himself a Volk and thus is stuck with the Volker moniker until he does so. Not to mention you never learned his actual name, but yes he IS in fact around somewhere
>>33802312Yeah! No slapping my self today.
>>33802557I don't know what X-Com is either, but I hope it's fun!
Rolled 94>>33802312Well besides there being a gas giant, colonial world, volcanic world with a shipyard overhanging it with a space elevator. You noticed something peculiar while refueling from the gas giant refueling station.Besides the usual seasonal passing of ship caravans. That was offering the usual wares form core worlds, peoples, resources, and materials. Alas they weren't likely to be interested in you due to your non colonial status and being a single measly ship. Not like you have anything to offer anyway. Shit you don't even got a damned colony warrant or have the civilians signed papers for certain shenanigan coverage.While doing a pass of the system with scanners however against all odds...you detected a stealth ship presence was pinged as it get hit by a particularly large piece of debris causing a ripple RIGHT at the perfect time for you to pick up on it.Discovered Shadowed Ghost Vessel floating aimlessly.You scans also a wild planet way beyond the system. It seems to have BARELY been in range and you only just picked up on it while on the very edge of the system. You know its trajectory so can easily find it...for now.Discovered Wild World made of legendary planetoids that have no solar system to call home but float around in deep space aimlessly.
>>33802817"Commander, would you advise a boarding party to investigate this strange vessel?"

Rolled 42>>33802891"Well its not entirely offline considering its cloaking tech is still good...and that shit alone would be well worth it because SOMEONE didn't shell out for the better options.""HEY at least be thankful that these engines of ours are SUPER.""Why not go to UMBRA you managed to get laser batteries from Adero.""Well that is BECAUSE in exchange for those laser batteries I couldn't go to Umbra."...what the FUCK is WRONG with you? You DO realize Umbra has some of the best reverse engineering, tech stealing, and stealth tech right?"'WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT.""To not burn bridges of course.""FUU-"transmission cut out due to possibility of morale damage and moral threats.
>>33802966Hmm, so we've taken the Adero package? Nice, better see if we can't buy some heavy shields from them later."Ah, it might not be offline but is there any indication anyone is onboard or it has automated defense systems? One that could say, fire back at us if we simply tried to crack its shields.Surely such a ship with advanced technology ought to be exploited, but with stealth systems like that who knows hat offensive capabilities are under those.""Do we know anything about the local colonies here?"
Rolled 37>>33803105"Well I also sorta paid for it but adero laser batteries ain't cheap so i had to throw in a little extra and Adero hates Umbra even by Megacorp standards.">Commander"Considering it still has enough power to use shields and despite us detecting it just hanging there listlessly. Hard to say stealth shields always have shields problem is they are a bit weaker in order to sacrifice for the stealth aspect. Still we don't know what is exactly lurking underneath but we could determine it was hanging there for awhile with heavy scanning we detected no traces of elements or heat. So its been hanging there for quite awhile."-----Local colony is a rather newish start up to exploit the fertile planet its nestled on while the volcanic world is really starting to get into the swing of things.Basically one is a new colony while the other is 'old'. We acquired personnel from both and bought some from the passing ships.
>>33803230"Would aquiring a heavy EMP to disable the ship as a preventative measure work? This is, down the line of course.""Also, what sort of operations can we do here in terms or resource or wealth gathering. Surely some of the locals could use a ship with lasers and a willing crew to do something."
Rolled 14>>33802894Alright we need resources and money to buy the things we need. It could be a trap, But it's worth checking the ship out. Lets use a mix of thinker for hacking and study of the usable tech, Old guys for their wisdom and X members for the meat of the breach team.Let do our best to not set off the auto defenses. We want as much tech and items we can get from this ship. >Break into the ship and see what lays with in. Trying to not set alarms off.Commander view any changes ?
>>33803686Hrm, we're not exactly suited for hacking without some nice Umbra technology, and we still have to crack that shield so we won't be able to get in without opening fire on the ship or disabeling the shield somehow.I would like to prepare just a bit before we make a move on the vessel
Rolled 78>>33803623"Depends on the shields they're using EMP blasts can only do so much. Not to mention we don't got no nukes.">>33803623There is always pirating hunting, serving as a trader, transport ect.>>33803786Who says its Umbra who says it not alien or some other faction?
Rolled 40>>33803857Well, I have to go so I'll vote we find someone who needs something moved and transport it for them for cash,
>>33803786That's fair. But who knows how long we can keep a eye on it. We can at least take a look at it. Maybe break it's engines.
>>33804142It's the ships automated defenses coming online or aliens having taken over the ship that worries me.
Rolled 67>>33803918Supporting money run
>>33804432That's why we have smart team members to count on. The think tank people are just as good in labs and they are on the field when it come to tech. Then we got our teamed members of X to count on for aliens. >>33802894Sorry for being rude. I hope we can count on you members of the tank and X. >Do we know what type of cult the cultist are? "Any one else have info or skills we can use for the boarding of the ship?"
Rolled 5>>33804620The cultists are of xeno focused.
Rolled 32>>33804761May I ask if you fine people wish to study or are you fine we getting dirty if you need to? I'm hoping you can aid with cracking the ship open.
Rolled 2>>33803918... Yeah I guess it can wait one turn. Money!
Rolled 96>>33803918You do indeed successfully find someone who needs some cargo moved and did so though the pay left a bit to be desired considering competition with the caravans who pass through off and on.So while you did make a little bit a money finding yourself in a different system you had to return to take on the ship.>Turn 3>>>>>>A.

>>33805266"Commander we're REALLY itching to touch that ghostly vessel but wanna take every precaution we can, anything you can think of we could try to have a fallback or something in case shit hits the fan?"
Rolled 87>>33805266NEWSA ship battle has occured while we were gun a notable wrecked fleet of ships spread through the system especially focusing around the gas giant and colonies. while everywhere else it tends be a bit fewer the further away. Apparently the battle has just ended considering we detect signitures of military vessels patrolling through the area for one last sweep before retreating to the shipyard for service. The scavengers have yet to arrive so the pickings are quite rich atm.>>33805294"Drop pods or send carriers in while the main ship hangs back.""Considering the new discovery I suggest dividing our forces up between different objectives."
>>33805327"Do you mean split up between the ghost vessel and scavenging the wreckages?"
Rolled 18>>33805353"I strongly suggest that. Bots would be good in vacum hold back the smarties for whenever their needed, civilians go to the wrecks, most of the military boys go to ghost ship except for the guard details. If we get lucky we can find some wrecks that are still in serviceable condition or other treasures. From the looks of things the ships are a quite the admixture."
>>33805394Sounds like a plan, now need to implement it.
Rolled 30>>33805394its a slow night...playing on a ship in this setting where i was expecting a sort of colonial effort.Makes it harder on you in the long run. Ships ain't cheap, trade isn't great, and stuff is hard to come by as a nomad.Settle down you can really extract stuff without insane investments required and still benefit not to mention the help colonies can expect.
>>33805680It's just one of those nights, I got like several quests and other stuff running right now. Anyway, still thinking on that plan.
>>33805680I bet every one else is going to see Guardians of the Galaxy or something.
Rolled 5>>33805394>>33805327Get ready, we're splitting up.Smart guys, you stay back and be ready to shuffle whereever you're needed most.Bots, you guys work in the vacuum while Civies work on the wrecks and we scavenge whatever we can in tandem. Priority is wrecks which can be salvaged to movement status and hauled out of the mess.Any of you guys with military training who ain't on guard duties head in Drop Pods or any carriers we have to investigate the ghost ship. We'll stay back to provide support if needed.
Rolled 50>>33805766I hope this works! Supporting
Rolled 16>>33805704Yeah but I expect those nights on the odd days not the usual tuesday thursday.>>33805740Nomad is tough thanks to Nomad HQ you basically ended up with a bloody mothership.

>>33805912>While drinking from our rubber duck wine glass.aw, you reminded me of the gearheas.
>>33805964Sorry about that. But it's final bit of madness will stay with me for a while.
Rolled 95>>33805912mfw you rolled high enough to a certain nasty surprise.Aww...I was looking forward to using that one too.>>33805766Civilians were able to pick up 4 ships and get them into somewhat functional condition. All it took was a bit of patchwork and duck tape. They have alerted us that there may be some survivors often in some kind of stasis or hiding considering the sweeps.the bots meanwhile seem be busy slapping stuff together in an odd pile...Military forces penetrate through the stealth field revealing a battle scarred craft. There they successfully boarded finding the evidence of battles...but that has become scoured clean. Inside the place is clearly heavily advanced and we have sent in some of researchers.Manufacture is of unknown origin for now from what we can determine.

Rolled 44>>33808518They do indeed though thier current 'AI' is shit.Apparently we managed to get all the easy stuff as whats coming after is isn't nearly so quick still though we made a moderate amount of progress.Still we managed to secure another ship this one a frigate of human origin.The telling them your private contractors doesn't ease some of them who demand to know who your contracted to if possible. The other ones meanwhile are soothed before giving information regarding how this became quite the cluster fuck as a basically a band of pirates decided to hit a caravan...problem is by the time they got here they were already gone instead there was a nasty surprise.The professional soldiers Commander recognizes especially once they stated about a certain someone's name...."Wait you telling me gal Alisha is here?""She don't go by Alisha now instead Captain Alisha Zarkh.""Well shit where is her tiny shitty boat?""Old friend of yours", asks Mizar."Yeah she saved my daughter's life awhile back so thankful that sh isn- no you didn't."*whistles innocently*"MIIZZZAAAARRRRR-"Transmission cut for safety reasons."See that ship over there?""Shit that one?""Yup.""That thing is HUGE and more importantly AWESOME.""I know right?"And you are?""Commander's daughter she told me awhile back she got herself a Dreaded Juggernaut.""Dreaded?""Yeah you know the juggernaut and dreadnaught problem?""Ah yeah?""They had a baby.""Oh shit now that is AWESOME.""Finally someone who agrees with me.""I heard of the Dreadnaught class and Juggernauts but I never knew they managed to combine them.""It is indeed carries a lot of problems as those that even 'succeeded' suffer problems.

>>33809330>>33809415Probably best to jump out then.
>>33809990MIzar gave off that vibe for some reason
>>33809990Actions, actions, actions what to do hmm."Commander, new star system, think we should go on a scouting run to see what's around? this place is pretty wild"
>>33809990So we captured something like 4 pirate/caravan ships right? With our mothership as impressive as it is, I don't see too much point in keeping these. Possibly the more combat oriented ones, but I'll bet that we could sell some of these for quite a bit. Full functioning space ship? Fuck yeah We could buy a squadron of not!tie fighters that could wreck. Think the protos carriers in Starcraft.
>>33810191We'd need to get back to civilization though.Just not the last one, they might be mad at us.
>>33810286What is stoping us from stopping at the nearest interstellar chop shop right now?
Rolled 50>>338101911 cruiser2 destroyers 1 alien1 frigate1 raider>>33810191your mothership is insane and will only become more so once i figure out more of those damned stats...fucking HQ nomad aka mothership.Still one thing you need to realize is that as a fleet you lose your ships its game over. While if you have a colony you aren't utterly fucked.Fighters/bombers in sci fi...don't use pilots. Instead they are controlled like Drones or by an AI. Much like missiles but are reusable as well.Basically a sci fi carrier has holds upon holds of drone/bot fighters/bombers fully ready and willing to terror you a new asshole.Sci Fi missile boats basically have ass tons of torpedo bays and firing devices basically they unleash a hale of smart one time missiles ready to load up. Quite devastating still and actually cheaper then a true carrier(dem fighters/bombers ain't cheap). Not to mention better at taking hits surprisingly enough.You should check out the rocket batteries they use dumb bombs and seem to be a poor mans missile really on numbers and lack of range(see good aim). Except for a few patterns that upon 'missing' go mine mode when they miss. Always a rude surprise for those who underestimate the humble rocket.>>33810171"This is a wild world a planet that has no star system. What do you expect? its only company is the rare passing comet and dark matter. Its well known that wild worlds are insanely rich in exotic materials due to their...wandering nature. Too bad they make a ice world look hot in comparison."
>>33810369"Mal, would you be opposed to running some fighters and bombers? Possibly out of the frigate, unless of course you prefer your ship or have any ideas?"
>>33810369"So could we perform any useful operations here? How do you suggest we set out, we're thinking of the usual scouting run but your input is always welcome."
Rolled 76>>33810369A simple but devastating ship is the humble rocket boat who will try to close in then unleash a devastating hail of rockets. Sure they seem simple and easy to kill but holy hell do they pack one hell of a punch. Makes those light fast fragile ships so much meaner especially considering the lack of care over rocket weakness due to already being fragile as hellA rocket boat who makes a good run has not been known to take down ships far above their own size range. Too bad their fragile and massive ammoholics.Other fun stuff include the classic battleships weaving into combat with their massive cannons attempting to snipe their foe from afar. Easier said then done a deadly slow game in the great empty void of space.Then you have the crazy ass new patterns Dreadnaught class who loaded up with heavy ass armor charge fearlessly into the thick of combat. Most would assume they would never make it until you realize these ships are the biggest fans of energy weaponry. Enjoy your laser batteries blasting and plasma cannon ready to happily eat your shields and terror through all that lies underneath.The sheer raw devastating power that is plasma is insane problem is its utter shit range. Some have tried to fix this but no matter what you do it all pales in comparison before the insane might of the plasma bloom tearing everything in its way into nothingness.It took a long while to make it better for range but it still doesn't remotely compare to the awesome that is a plasma bloom firing from a plasma cannon.Most aliens thought humanity utterly insane for the dreadnaught class if it wasn't for their ludicrous effectiveness as it makes a mockery of typical space combat due to range issues. The dreadnaught is all about giving the finger to this assumption.>>33810533Most hostile to life excellent location will likely stick around here at least. Rogue AI and bots not exactly welcome in many places.
>>33810659>>33810659>"So could we perform any useful operations here? How do you suggest we set out, we're thinking of the usual scouting run but your input is always welcome."This is a question directed at the commander and is a question of what sort of options for useful actions we can do in this wildplanet as well as how we should get started, in particular if he would advise reconaisance of the system with our ships
Rolled 93>>33810659Humanity is most well known for their infamous juggernaut and dreadnaught class of ship.Dreadnaughts give up on the sheer volume of weapons inexchange for heavier armor while keeping a few critical weapon systems.Juggernauts are the oppostite.They give up armor in exchange for massive volume of weapons. Not quite so fragile as a carrier but definitely up there they keep their distance and utterly pummel them from afar.Most well known for their gauss cannons and macro cannons unleashing a torrential downpouring firepower down range. And when you think that is finally enough? Enjoy your lasers and torpedoes.The juggernauts are huge battleship and attempt to jam as much weapons into themselves as possible as possible. The longer range the better but that doctrine has certainly proven a rude surprise when some bastard gets close enough to discover much to their horror the rocket batteries unleashing their hails on those who falsely believed that being close makes you 'safe' from their wrath.The hybrid between these two has always caused much problems as they are near polar opposites. Yes I have spent far too much time figuring out space combat bite me.>>33810730"There is no system around it the wild world just empty dark space far from any nearby star. I would suggest putting up a colony to take advantage of exotic materials but we don't have the stuff for a world as harsh as this."
>>33810835"Mizar, Mal, and any of you smarties. If we get you the resources, think you could research and manufacture the technologies we need to set up a colony, or are we better off going to another system to get what we need?"
Rolled 87>>33810835One shouldn't underestimate the armor of a juggernaut though that while they do focus on overwhelming power they do avoid the glass cannon trope. They just unlike their dreadnaughts shy away from close quarters.Dreadnaughts had to focus on heavy armor to fully utilize their collective strategy with a few key weapons.Beware Dreadnaught laser batteries as unlike most these ones are always the 'supercharged' variant to go along with the utter energy hog that is plasma. So while they are attempting to close expect especially powerful lasers before the death whose herald is the dreaded plasma bloom coming from the firing shot of the plasma cannon. Its also worth noting that Dreadnaughts tend to be one of the few heavier classes of ships that still employs rockets. As when they divert the energy that would be feeding the laser batteries to the plasma cannon they can still unleash a battery along with it.this is a infamous trio weapon combo when not dealing with the classic duality of laser and plasma. trio became popular when much stronger lasers started becoming a thing.Plasma cannons even on smaller ships have been known to utterly wreck ships in one's weight class and cripple those higher up.>>33810895"Easy enough just don't ask for terraforming tech. Besides colonial sets aren't exactly expensive as long as you don't want anything too fancy in mind"
>>33765825For forbidden lore (if it's not chosen already) I vote insight into the true nature of consciousness.
Rolled 45>>33811001I spent too much time figuring out space combat...the weapons I talked about btw are the classic weapons most common among humanity.Aliens like to employ stuff like ion cannons and shit.humanity's big five weapon choices are carriers, laser, plasma, boom, and railgun.My choices for human weapons is based upon what we are most familiar with, figured out, and most look forward too.also spend way too much time figuring out the space combat shit...>>33811089I can tell you that right now anon due to recent discoveries.Its on a quantum level which makes it possible. scientists are stilling figuring out the details but they confirmed the hypothesis that followed along those lines.
>>33795992But we're granting them immortality! It's a singular honour to be chosen for sacrifice, witheld from our heroes only out of desperate need for their skills in their present forms.
>>33811116>, and railgun.I thought you said no magic in Sci-Fi. . .
Rolled 3>>33811329railguns and similar gauss weaponry don't run on magic.Unless of course you use magic to mimic the effects.
>>33811371>railguns and similar gauss weaponry don't run on magic.Bullshit, they've always ran on magic and pure distilled bullshit in your setting
>>33800142Seeker, Rich Kiddie.
Rolled 62>>33810835>actionsGo out and gather resources for the research and manufacturing of the equipment we need to start up a colony here.
>>33811400Rail guns are made of magnates, depleted uranium, and "certain parts" Are you new? :3
>>33811457No no no, they're a highly guarded secret only ancient redneck sages from the swamps or bandit servants of the Rape God could ever possibly fathom.
Rolled 18>>33811457I use the certain parts excuse due to high tech level and my limited knowledge on manufacturing/engineering.I'll admit this.>>33811454Its a wild world out in deep void your forces can only do so much. Such a world would even cause terraforming masters to take pause.
>>33811371I thought the AI was on the ghost ship. Was that a different ship or did the AI move in with us?But what I was thinking, if every one was ok with it, We hook up some of our robots to MAL. Give them some int Adams MAL some hands to work with.
Rolled 87>>33811648I am connected vey a certain piece of tech. Don't ask how it works I am still trying to figure that out myself. And yes my ship isn't with you also neither is the commander's daughter with me. Don't tell. Gonna check up on her friend. The ship is strange I believe there is something amiss and i do believe I figured it out.
>>33811637I don't know, we gave you legitimate plans and actual details on the function of railguns on numerous occasions but it always seemed to boil down to "lack of certain parts". So even when we had the magnets, the ammunition, the electronics and targeting systems and everything in place there was always some element missing that ONLY our magical civs ever had.It's safe to say that even if you have everything necessary for the production of railguns, which we had in the past numerous times, they will still fail without these mysterious "certain parts" which always seemed to be of a fantastical nature.
>>33811700It was space magic all along.So I guess we are turning this place into a dark matter mine?
>>33811721That depends really on what dark matter means.In a real world sense, dark matter is simply matter that the light of a sun doesn't shine, but in some sci-fi settings "Dark Matter" can mean something else entirely.
Rolled 31>>33811700...yeah you never did figure out the problem did you?I remember that now. the Secret and the actual truth of those 'missing' parts. Heh.Oh man I can't believe i forgot that i was giggling like crazy over it.>>33811721Dark matter in addition to exotic matter.I suggest avoiding using living creatures and just deploy bots for mining. After that you'll only need a cargo/transport ship.Too many creature comforts required.
>>33811745>the Secret and the actual truth of those 'missing' parts.Magic.By reason of deduction that only our magic civs had the capability to understand and produce railguns, fairly safe to say.
>>33811745Was it a AI to manage the power flow to fire?Also if our base doesn't have it. We need to get repair bays up and running we need the power to make new ships and drones.
>>33811771Conversly our most scientific ones and even those same ones with engineer training couldn't ever even touch the stuff, despite all the resources available to them.
Rolled 100>>33811745That and the virus loophole...>>33811771No actually I can say that fer a fact.Har har har.It was a so simple...yet also a major problem it waasssEnergy.Power.The problem with smaller powerful weapons is lack of power to make the damn things which was why railguns were limited to such large vessels that could actually afford to lug around the needed energy generator to power the damn thing.the fact they FINALLY got it down to easy tank size was a HUGE improvement. Like holy hell was it big. The next big score was easy handheld model before well...yeah.Sadly hand held models were still avoiding the majority. Only stuff of 'odd' manufacture could figure out and they were extremely rare.>Basically batteries.The bane of the modern world and so too in the far future for getting those awesome toys working properly.
Rolled 11>>33811858and the dice completely agree.anyway lets get back on track your actions?>>33811858The problem of minimization and power.boom BOOM.LALalAlaso suck it.>>33811858...why do the dice fucking love you guys so much this thread.Its like the Memor all over again. I swear I have been getting flashbacks this entire thread.
Rolled 76>>33811916Its like the Memor all over again...Don't forget to archive btw.
>>33811858...Adero had more energy than any civ to date, fueled by geothermal energy from a volcano in a volcanic setting capable of setting up a massive shield around their tower as well as a giant Tesla coil. They even had mini-reactors in addition to Hydrogen synthesized fuel.Memor had their own biofuel production facilities, and enough mini-reactors to power Super Tank and Behemoth armies.Yet each of them lacked the raw power make and fire a railgun? Even a simple giant base mounted one? Meanwhile, Bloodsnow who had barely any power since the Ghouls had taken over the reactors were able to produce these things on a whim?
Rolled 67>>33811942I believe you anon they are magical. Genie just wants to trick us so we'll never be able to make them.>>33811916Maybe we should just explore the planet with the bots

Rolled 16>>33811942Bloodsnow weapons weren't railguns.As for making..you could make them big but you wanted them small and work. You wanted them to be man portable which was something even the greatest of Pre Fall civs were still sweating blood over.Hell they practically made it rain sweat just to make them tank portable.Yet there you were Post Fall wanting all that shit?HAH.>>33812013I am aware of the required tech for railguns surprisingly enough.
>>33812047>As for making..you could make them big but you wanted them small and workI'm going to look through the archives and call you out on your bullshit. We wanted to create a large base mounted one that would be big enough to help stop the mobile forts that were on the way.In addition, bloodsnows had railguns, so that's another point of bullshit from you again Genie.
Rolled 58>>33812084They didn't build them though.As for memor wouldn't didn't you roll a crit fail for that? Because i was gonna allow that.
>>33812047Yeah, I want dudes with stealthed jet pack power armor that drop contact detonated cluster grenades, but we don't get what we want in these civs...
>>33812111Nope. We kept trying to build a big one, but eventualy it got to the point where our engineers kept mysteriously dying for some reason.
Rolled 83>>33812139Bad rolls? I can think of some other stuff in the background...yeah there was a lot of fun in the background.Like the one you all hate oh so much. Not to mention a weapon like that would be quite the energy hog.>>33812128I don't either.Anyway actions?
>>33812139I think it's because we have scared away all the new anon's and lost some "hero anon's"There is a meta civ going on in genies civ games now, at least in my mind.
Rolled 26>>33812111>ActionStudy the area and set up mining. I sure we can use all the resources here for something. If we can contain it thou, work on that first.
>>33812192I have very little interest in this wild world, we need to head towards somewhere where we can sell some of our acquired goods. Somewhere relatively safe where we might be able to buy some land to colonize. We do have several ships we can sell, and they ain't cheap.
>>33812262There are a ton of resources below us though. If we could get some bots there even scratching some of this stuff, we'd have way more valuable things to sell than these mere ships
>>33812281Is the AI still here to oversee that? If he is, I fully agree, if not, it seems a waste of bots.Let's not get too excited with the first planet we see, shop around a bit you know?
>>33812326Hrm, well we need to find a new system then. Also we really shouldn't sell these ships we need a big fleet. Isn't there anything else we can sell besides the ships?
>>33812341I think we should keep them ... Well most of them. We need a fleet to keep the enemy at bay. You look like a fight even if we can't kill them we will hurt them.

Rolled 33>>33812398The sole major exception being my Fantastic Sci Fi Post Apoc. That Fall was FUN! and the major exception to the rule.This setting though...I am still torn on.
>>33812398>Considering the current rolls...this civ might actually last awhile. It stinks of the Memor days.The thought of how if we manage a civ wisely but background rolls suck we'll have a harder time than when we are lax with a civ yet the background rolls are good doesn't sit well with me.
>>33812326Main style I see with this civ is. We move gather move gather and so on. Until we find a place we like. We should gather while we can then move to the next in my book.
Rolled 14>>33812474These aren't background rolls for whatever reason dice love you guys.Pissing me off I haven't been able to remotely pull shit off.Its like the damned Memor all over again everytime I have something it gets turned on its head.as for managing a civ wisely....eh I have yet to see.Not to mention background rolls for the Memor were HORRIBLE.

Rolled 35>>33812582...erhm. Well that WOULD be possible thanks to the massive energy supply to power said railgun plus its size. I remember thinking long and hard about that but when I went back to the previous upgrades i had to concede it. Plus it WASN'T small AND it had plenty of power to draw on.Noice try anon.Plus multi 100 that fed on each other. I hate those ones the worst I remember that was around the time I started looking forward to the 3d 100...it never came.>>33812612Good rolls in the right place and excellent independent heroes.Not to mention I really did try killing you plenty of times...just never really worked out for me for the LONGEST time. It ended up being you getting yourselves killed.It wasn't even on me...As for what is so different...I don't know.I mean I have been adding onto the system slowly but I don't think it has made it harder as i try to make sure that didn't change too much.And the Memor did suffer some really nasty losses and got into some insanely tight binds. Yet for the longest time they would survive, brush themselves off and become even stronger.
>>33812612They did have the advantage of being big civ though, hundreds of tanks and whatnot.Extremely glad we're playing big Civ again for once, so I hope we last this time.
>>33812683>Yet for the longest time they would surviveThat's probably the part we're missing here. We keep dying and can't recover.We have a hard time brushing ourselves off and becoming stronger when the nat1s seem to be more deadly than they ever were back in those days where we could lose the equivalent of 3 later civs of population and survive.
>>33812683They didn't have any energy because at that point the Ghouls were still hogging the reactor section of the base.They did not have a SINGLE mini-reactor even.Not even damn biofuel.It had absolutely NO power to draw from.In addition to a complete and utter lack of technological insight, no tech OR pretech OR facilities to research the things.
Rolled 97>>33812753Actually those bunkers tapped into the base power. You did have tech insight, 100s helped with the rest.>>33812717hm...recovery. Recovery. Perhaps that is it. But if that was true...then the civ bloodsnow would not have been so good.Anyway seems we sorta got distracted.yet as mutants you still wouldn't have been able to so easily shrug it of-oh shit.THAT'S IT...no wait.yeah...Perhaps.Hm...at least partially that then.Actions?
Rolled 42>>33812816>ActinosHelp AI Mal set up bot mining operations on the planet to gather a trickle of valuable minerals that we can sell off for cash in nearby star systems
Rolled 55>>33812840Sad thing I was about to type something similar.
Rolled 66O yeah we still didn't name the mother ship. How about Orion?
Rolled 20>>33812816Alright I have said this before...but its not solely that.The Memor weren't all that great at recovering losses due to mutants...but they recruited like mad.Kicker is the bloodsnow did the same and they didn't have the penalties for pop growth.while many civs have had good heroes even a few shit slappers that wasn't solely it.NO.Even with the Guanyin who I gave awesome heroes because I thought that would work...but it wasn't enough.Not even a shit slapper hero(who are admitedly damn useful for avoiding pit falls and slapping sense into people) are quite enough.Not quite that either...while both DO extend civ life admittedly.No...Its ALL THREE.Memor had good heroes.Memor had good 'recovery'.Memor had shit slappers.This trinity allowed them the greatest life expectancy.It was ALL THREE.So there you go. The secret of the Memor's success even if you end up in an utter shit hole.So now the question isn't how you can COMPARE but rather how to BEAT?What did the Memor do wrong or what could you do better?First of all your all a bunch of voices in Mizar's head. Have fun with that as for how people don't know? Use's a voice changer.Yes Mizar is crazy honestly didn't think you would of done another twisted but apparently they are doing something right.>>33812840MAL returns with his ship...and a cargo ship of whom he explains has what he needs. The AI meanwhile requested we built bots lots of bots using the salvage. So we did and tried to help out where we could.After that AI MAL said we were welcome any time and it could use materials/tech. But merely asked us to keep this place secret.
>>33812941Cool. Keep in touch you wonderful AI you. I really hope MAL stays cool with us. I would hate to loss friends.
Rolled 92>>33812941btw found an excellent song for your favorite Post Apoc setting it fits disturbingly well.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fmfs71dzyLUSalvage reserves have been tapped into for robotic construction and transferred over.AI MAL has rewarded us with some bot blueprints.GainedStalker V2.5 : Comes with built in stealth field and excellent mobility. Bit weird looking but agile, speedy, and vicious. notable weaknesses is a bit fragile by bot standards(which isn't saying much) and lacking raw power.>>Turn 8>>>>>>>A. Scavenge for supplies.>>>>>>>B.

>>33812941>Memor had good 'recovery'.This seems to be the hardest part, as you can't recover when you're dead.Actually, come to think of it, the cultists we put on the backburner for so long seem to have all 3. . .or very close
>>33813007Do we have operations on the planet surface for mining yet, or do we need to invest in that som more?
Rolled 97>>33813007Not sure of which faction it screams of though but it certainly does fit.Even got a song for da psychos.Now random event...fuck why do these love you so much.Oh got it.WARNINGUnknown Titan Class Vessel warping in.WARNINGOh sounds like those two finally showed up including the Commander's daughter."what.""WHAT?""EXPLAIN YOU TIN CAN.""Crap...well daughter went with our forces hanging back wanted to check up on her friend.""Who exactly?""Alisha?""Oh nuts.""COMMANDER your sweetie of a daughter said you were nearby you up for some TEA?""Oh god oh GOD ANYTHING BUT TEA TIME."----Ah as I was saying besides that checking up i also did a pass with my own ship...'acquiring' materials and peoples. Including some ships the bastards are gonna take awhile with their salvage efforts so I left some surprises. You can have the ships and crew. I only want some tech to play with. Don't worry ships should be in fine shape with a little work just like with what you got.>>33813044Its already begun to be set up.
Rolled 97>>33813007This turn thinking we scout for the next planet to target or group of resources. While the rest do some team building exercises. I hope we will all learn to work together as friends and allies. Plus the improve tactics we can gain will be good.
Rolled 45>>33813079Ah you are interested in xeno tech yes? I do believe I can hand of some samples but i would like to...keep some vessels as payment.
>>33813147What sort of Xeno tech might you be offering?Hey commander, she wants to sell us alienware, got any good ideas in mind because we usually only care about cool weapons n shit but I bet you've got more foresight than that.
>>33813147Which ones? I would like it if we kept a destroyer.>>33813168Also this, It will be good to know what they want.
Rolled 90>>33813168Hm largely vessel tech with whatever else it may contain. I would just like to secure a few measly ships and supplies. I have no need for meatbags so I will transfer them to you.by the way you ever considered trying to figure out just what happened there exactly? We didn't find out much details."I am no scientists i am a commander. I am about war which means weapons, armor, logistics, stuff like that."
>>33813283"Logistics, how about that? Always in the need of resources, so better use what we have wisely.But hey, we like cool weaponshit too you know.">by the way you ever considered trying to figure out just what happened there exactly? We didn't find out much details.(what is she referring to?)
>>33813283I'm down if everyone else is.I assume you mean the battles going on. I see it as not our problem ... But thinking about it would be good to see what we can find out. Probably would need to use a small ship they don't remember as theirs.
Rolled 3>>33813007>>33813079I would be for setting up a colony with the means to repair our ships. The colonists would get hard as fuck on a wild world also.
>>33813130>>33813345Aw I wanted to scout around one more time for something nice. Plus team building for later fights.
>>33813283"Who are these meatbags? Any details?"I do NOT want another slave incident from splicer
Rolled 26>>33813345The only light is distant stars. The world would be so fucking cold as to be an ice world look warm and its dark...so dark. Wild Worlds are awful problem is due to their odd nature they tend to have some mighty interesting stuff in em.Also rare as balls due to how hard they are to locate.>>33813321Alisha was there during the clusterfuck and no mere grunt may actually know something.
Rolled 28>>33813375hm appear to be soldiers, corp, civilian, and what appears to be pirate in origin.wake them up see how their cards fall.
Rolled 55>>33813283>we didn't find out much detailsdidn't the survivors tell us anything about it?
>>33813433I think they were too busy panicking and being shot by pirates to remember much
Rolled 29>>33813433Something something poorly timed pirate raid.
Rolled 69>>33813448also this.
Rolled 16>>33813522...haw haw dice real funny.
>>33813509Poorly timed? It looks like the pirates won
Hrm, I want to do the trade oh so bad but I literally have to hit the sack because I have work tommorow. Here's hoping we can pick this up on tuesday.
Rolled 66>>33813542Considering the surprisingly intact cargo ESPECIALLY for a pirate raid that is a big nope.
>>33813283"Hey Alisha, what the hell happpened back there anyway? Looks like the pirates did a beating on the other guys, but they left the cargo what gives?"
Rolled 25>>33813609"Pirates got their asses kicked turned out they missed the caravan AND interupted a meeting between corps. Problem is each of the corps blamed the other for trying to pull a fast one by hiring pirates so each of their security forces deployed.""THEN they all sent messages out to their friends as it abruptly turned into a three way battle. Mercs started pouring as they got hired by whatever corp as well as pirate reinforcements.""As if THAT wasn't bad enough the colonies got involved by sending out an alert so then you got colonial and military vessels engaging turn that three way into a utter clusterfuck as groups lost track of who was their 'ally' then others came to exploit/make it worse like the aliens.""Suffice to say it was a real clusterfuck even my ship took a beating."
>>33813660"Damn, wish we could've stayed to get more of the leftovers. Even in defeat that place smells like a goldmine of all sorts of Megacorp and mercenary tech. Wonder if it'll be picked clean soon or if they'll still be fighting over it.
Rolled 42>>33813660"I personally lost count when it became a five way as around that time it fell apart into pure chaos."
>>33812084Eh, whatwashisname wanted a giant coilgun...when the Memor had little/no engineering experience with railgun type weaponry.
>>33812575>As for managing a civ wisely...eh I have yet to see.Wasn't V101 relatively wisely managed? I mean, we managed to walk along the razor's edge long enough to win...if that doesn't qualify as wise management then I don't know what does.
>>33813018Yes, I have high hopes for the Cultists. The only thing that they're perhaps lacking on is the heroes aspect...but the Prophetess' ability is really quite invaluable on that note.We need to figure out some way to boost their recruitment (probably just by becoming more famous). We already receive handfuls of new recruits every now and then, but it'd be nice if we were receiving hundreds instead of dozens at a time. It'd probably help if we could spectacularly obliterate that GOD FUCKING DAMN ZOMBIE/MONSTER HIVE THAT'S SITTING ON OUR FUCKING RESOURCES.
>>33814059I maintain v101 DID NOT win. They made the whole world really sad for a second. The grim bleakness of the world became shockingly apparent to everybody all at once. Nobody wins in the post apoc. Ever.
>>33814135Bloodsnow won by controlling and dominating their whole island, and living to this day.V101 won by the fact that the survivors now live in relatively good Umbra employee positions and have at last found a chance to use their think tank potential.Conversly, even if the tribal survivors lived, that was slavery, so definitely not a win there.>>33814037Memor had Crazy super Psionic railguns powered by psionic crystals and regular railguns and some of the best damn engineers out there.
>>33814094Also anon if you're reading this, know that I hope you and anyone else who played the cultists stick around because I swear to god we are gonna go back to them some day.>It'd probably help if we could spectacularly obliterate that GOD FUCKING DAMN ZOMBIE/MONSTER HIVE THAT'S SITTING ON OUR FUCKING RESOURCES.Oh you BETTER FUCKING BELIEVE we are gonna do JUST THAT.
