Politics and Peoples Discussion/Sign Up

Posts: 5,915
Hello! This will be my First attempt at DMing, and hope it goes quite well. I was at first discouraged to do this RP due to SS, but I realized they're actually very different. Anyway, enough about that.

Backstory: Nearly 100 years ago, the last great war ended. The humans had gained control over the sector, and had exiled the Zerg and Protoss. Originally, it was decided that all should be put into one, giant, Galactic Empire, however, this lost favor and instead many smaller states were made. A Great Council was made, for all diplomats in the galaxy to meet at and discuss major issues within the galaxy, however it could only make limited decisions, and had no military power other than an alliance with everyone in the galaxy. Surprisingly though, it held on, and has held on for one-hundred years, maintaining near-constant peace and making swift decisions to all issues. But recently, the small fringe nation of Mirlt went dark, and when an investigation showed that it had been utterly destroyed, it was abandoned and it's representative killed himself. Could it have been a Zerg? A Protoss? Something else? Nobody knew, and so a council was scheduled to be called in...

Description of RP: This RP will be....different. It won't work as most do, but rather will work by making war, political talk, and the occasional war/fight. You may have several different types of characters, free characters of your nation who are free to do whatever, and may engage in subplots if you wish, a Leader, and a diplomat. Having all three are recommended, but only a diplomat is required. You will have an entire nation at your disposal, and may do with it as you please.

Backstory: Orion was born on a small, dark planet. Not much is known about this interesting boy, except for the fact that his planet was ravaged by pirates. He was captured by them and was turned into a slave after his parents were murdered in front of him. He slowly gained his owners' trust, and later, after dark, he crept into their rooms, and killed them all. After that, he traveled to a planet, and after many tactical kills, became leader. He is a fair, but harsh ruler. He believes in a perfect society. He accepts no mistakes. This cold and calculating man will do anything for complete domination.

Slowly but surely, humans adapted to be able to breath the noxious gasses on the moon, as well as oxygen. After the Protosses mysterious disappearance, the army of Bahavia trekked onto the planet. The used the people as special ops because of their ability. However after a few months of peace, they started to die on oxygen rich planets. The cause was unknown, as they could supposedly breath oxygen. Even when they were returned to the moon they continued to die. After a while, Siruis's entire people died. He alone was left. Instead of dying, he had blackouts. After saving Orion from an attempted assassination, he was given the rank of diplomat, and took care of the people of the land. He saw that they worked hard and did what they were told, but remained in grand condition, and that they remained happy. He created the fun days where A week a month, people got to do whatever they wanted. With him as diplomat, the people were happy in complete facism, and they were prosperous as well. No crimes, no poverty. He is the peoples direct line to Orion. He is the most loved figure in all of Bahavia. A law was past that if any harm was inflicted apon this man, the entire nation of Bahavia would reach out, capture the crime-doers, and torture them for all eternity.

Kenji and other Ghosts were left alone in a world they didn't understand. They didn't interact well with other people and some became homeless or mercs and people despised their dark ways. Kenji didn't want them to live like worms. He rallied them and left to a dark fringe world. The world was filled with a dark metal. It was study, and very conductive. It serves as the base of their resources and is abundant in the planets area. Over the course of 15 years, he founded the Zerin Republic. He was the Monarch leader, but not a dictator, the power lied in his people, but he could override some decisions. He leads a people that are not well known, they don't participate in most politics (with the exception of emergencies such as the one currently). Their interaction is mostly mercenary work, being hired to fight on one side of a war to make money, but they also sell products or pure Shadowsteel.

Dark Reaver - Only 4 in existance. Extremely expensive, but what they do have is enough. These are large warships. They can't destroy a whole fleet, but they can defend a planet well. They are built in space and are about an eighth the size of their Homeworld (slightly larger than earth). They lack heavy shielding, but have incredible stealth (cannot be seen by optics , heard or by some scanners in cloaking) They have a total of 8 H.A.L.O. cluster rocket pods, 16 Plasma Flak cannons, and one Obliteration beam, consumes all the ships power and leaves it incapacitated for 5 days only able to power life support systems, but it can tear through almost any armor.

Special Notes:

Adamantine
A rare ore found only in the Arcadia system. It has an extremely high melting point, needing to be cooked by plasma for a full hour to be at a consistancy that can be reliably moulded. It is also extremly durable, being harder than diamond, allowing it to hold it's shape no matter what hits it and pierce almost anything if enough force is put behind it. However, it has so far only been found in the arcadia system and can only be reliably found on Valhalla. As a result, it is stockpiled on the planet of Vorthal in a nuclear shelter 2000 meters below the surface, and the only way inside is by an elevator deep in the military compound of that planet, meaning you have to go through their entire army to get to it.

Military tech: Easily 3. Probably more, but they prefer to sell weapons, not use them.
Worlds: They tend to not live on planets, but they originated on Doer-Vaeran and control small portions of a few other worlds.
Population: Countless.
Respect: A five at most. The Xel'Naga were the first to look down on them contemptously, and people have been doing it ever since.
Fear: Probably at least a seven or eight, for while they aren't scary warriors or anything, they are extremely greedy, have talents such as voice manipulation, and will stop at nothing to make a profit.

Jester^
Name: Outcasts
Leader(s): Tratos
Galactic location: Outer
Government type: Direct Democracy
Economy Type: Market Socialism
Money: $85 billion
Military Strength: 18 million (All population has gone through mandatory military training)
Military Tech: Custom, Scavenged
Worlds: Fairground (Homeworld), Lavera, Isslias, Vagar, Eritica
Population: 50 Billion
Political Respect: 8
Infantry
Warrior: Mutant melee unit often deployed with no weapons other than grenades. They are strong enough to handle larger weapons with one hand, and are often seen scavenging from enemies they have killed.
Grenadier: Anti-armored infantry armed with a grenade launcher. They are normally armed with grenades that can wreck vehicles, but can be outfitted with incendiary grenades or EMP grenades.
Infiltrator: Stealthy spy unit armed with a silenced rifle, they are the eyes and ears of the Outcasts, and have been known to steal materials for Outcast use, as well as jacking vehicles using EMP grenades in order to bring them back.. They usually avoid fights, and move quickly, using cloaking that detectors don’t pick up.
Salvager: Lightly armed infantry, they can repair vehicles. They scavenge things from vehicles, and can attach scavenged parts to other vehicles to boost their abilities. They are armed with a revolver.
Medic: Mutant equivalent of the normal medic. They are armed with an SMG, a special grenade that is made of an unknown mix that heals mutants, and can deploy flares to blind enemies as well as gear that can remove bad effects from allied troops.
Vanguard: Durable anti-infantry unit, armed with a Flak Cannon and almost as durable as a tank. They are mostly mercenaries, often fighting for whoever pays them the most. They cannot be bribed when with their kin-faction. They can set det-packs on structures.
Sentinel: Mercenary rocket troopers, armed with an E.L.E.R.D.S. (Excessively Large Explosive Rocket Delivery System), these troops are durable as tanks and are nightmares to them, as well as structures.
Ghost Stalker: Mutant commando, mercenary, and spy, these people are feared by even the specialists of other factions due to their abilities and training. They are extremely efficient, often fighting armies on their own. They use powerful Rail-Guns, and can swap to a Light Machine Gun.
Pack-master: These individuals have trained creatures native to the planet that the mutants had set down and called home. These creatures can spit acid which kill tanks. Killing the master will make the pack uncontrollably attack enemies.

Vehicles
Ironback: Mutant constructor and melee mech, these machines are in charge of maintaining the base structures and refineries. They are durable enough to fight in melee against enemies, and can leap at targets.
Gunwalker: Armed light walker, they are armed with twin machine guns to deal with infantry targets, and their legs are pointed, allowing them to stab infantry, and sometimes tip tanks over.
Digger: Anti-armored tank, these machines are reused from mining vehicles from previous wars. They can dig in, exposing less of their armor and gaining better range, but they cannot move.
APC: Reused vehicle from a few years back, these vehicles can hold one team of infantry and deploy them wherever they are needed. They can also lay EMP mines out to ambush the crews of enemies and scrap vehicles for themselves.
Seeker: Light-weight hover tank, these vehicles are armed with SMART Missile Batteries, equipped with this system for a singular purpose: destruction of aircraft, and sometimes on structures to level locations.
Vanter: The crown jewel of the mutants, these heavy tanks are juggernauts of the battlefield. They are armed with a heavy cannon and four independent machine guns, but these only are a tip of an iceberg. They are capable of holding six people who can fire out.

Aircraft
Impact Drone: Reused UAV technology, these drones are suicide flyers made to crash into enemies. Because they are small and cheap, they are fragile, but if they get in range to explode, they are extremely deadly.
Sidewinder: Reused aircraft, these machines unleash a hail of bullets on a location every time they pass, with enough rounds to destroy close to any infantry. They can also release a missile which becomes corrosive when in contact with the air.
Varius: Re-used Wraiths, these machines now have a more powerful and faster burst laser as well as a more improved cloaking system, allowing them to jam missile locks while they advance to locations, cloaked.
Blimp: Refurbished and reused civilian Blimp, these vehicles are armed with four gatling guns underneath it, unleashing fire on everything they find. They can open up a bottom hanger, and deploy bombs on ground targets.
Devastator: Heavy flier armed with a large amount of cannons, bringing an anti-armor view to everything they find. They can convert generator energy to speed the vehicle up at the cost of a slower fire rate.
Hurricane: Reused variant of a standard Hurricane-variant Battlecruiser, armed with enough missile batteries to block the sky with missiles, along with the shield found in most of them. They do not have a Yamato gun equipped and are faster.

Super Unit
XVSM-29045 “Harbinger” Heavy Train: Part hover tank, part train, and part WMD, the ‘Harbinger’ Heavy Train is a floating fortress of firepower, boasting enough weapons to destroy a continent, along with enough supplies to supply an army for years. They use the same E.L.E.R.D.S. rocket system as the Sentinel, only sending Super Thermobaric Rockets, requiring them to be long-range when they fire it. Other than that, they have weapons on every car to deal with every unit they find. They can also mount other systems, providing shields, mobile repairs, healing, or planting mines

Not so much impossibru, rather armies.

Jake's army.

Thanks to exceeding the character limit, here's my army's aresenal in a seperate post.

Army:
Infantrymen
>>CMC-400 Power Armour (Advanced, Bulkier, version of the CMC-300 Power Armour. Comparable to upgraded marauder armor in durability, and a hybrid of marine and marauder in mobility. Painted a Dark Grey with the symbol of the U.P.A on it's chestplate)
>>Guass Carbine (Like the rifle, but 3-round burst fire, longer ranged, and better accuracy)
>>3 M12 Fragmentation Grenade (Can't pierce CMC power armour, mostly used to flush out enemies from cover)

Heavy Weapon Specialists
>>CMC-500 Tactical Dreadnaught Armour (An advanced version of the marauder chasis. Solid Slug rounds are useless and even guass spikes have difficult time piercing it's hide. Painted a Jet Black with the symbol of the U.P.A on it's upper chestplate.)
>>Punisher Missiles (Anti-Infantry and Anti-Tank Varients. Both are advanced variants of the grenades of the old marauder suits, made into warheads for longer range and greater accuracy)

Devil Dogs (HWS Variant)
>>CMC-500 Tactical Dreadnaught Armour (Painted a Jet black with a flaming design of dark grey to charcoal black on their arms and shoulder pads. The symbol of the U.P.A is shown on it's chestplate, surrounded by a wreath of charcoal black flame.)
>>Hellfire Launchers (Missile Launchers that fire Incendiary Warheads that are noteriously known for their charcoal black flames and ablility to burn bright even in the Frozen climates of Valhalla)

Medics (Non-combatants: Protected by the rules of engagement)
>>CMC-400 Power Armour: Medical Varient (The armour is painted a bright white with the red cross on both shoulder pads and the Symbol of the U.P.A on their helmet. A full range of medical tools and syringes are inside the right arm, and a medical scanner is on the left)

Leman Russ Battle Tank: A Heavily armored battle tank with a cannon comparable to the siege tank in siege mode. It is armed with regular cannon rounds as well as Incendiaries and Anti-Vehicle rounds. It is painted a Jet Black with the symbol of the U.P.A on the corners of the hull.

Baneblade: What can only be described as a mobile Bastion at the size of a thor if it were laid flat on the ground, this monster is armed with a main gun dubbed the 'Guass Cannon', a double-barreled Rail Gun that fires Adamantine-Tipped Depleted Uranium Spikes at mach 1, or it can also fire the same ammunition as a Leman Russ, though still at supersonic speeds. Two turrets are on either side with 180° swival turrets, each armed with quad-barreled Guass Cannons that fire adamantine-tipped spikes. It is armored with an Adamantine Chasis, and there have been documented reports of baneblade chasises entirely undamaged when the rest of the tank was blown away.
There are luckily only 10 of these monstrosities currently existing, and only one has ever been on the field at any one time, but in the face of this unkown threat, that record may finally be broken...

Navy:

Pegasus
Class: Fighter
Engine: Promethium-Fueled Thruster
Armor: Neosteel
Armaments:
>>Javalin Missile x8 (4 on each wing)
>>>Description: Advanced version of the wraith missiles of old, these have a higher yield explosion and come in 3 types: Standerd/All-Porpose (High-Yield Explosive), Anti-Infantry (Incendiary), Anti-Vehicle/Ship (Armor-Percing and High-Yield Explosive)
>>Guass Cannon x2 (both on either side of the frontal hull)
>>>Description: Essentially a larger version of the Guass Rifle

Shadowbolt
Class: Stealth Bomber
Engine: Experimental Plasma Generator
Armor: Neosteel
Description: Having only exited the prototype stage a few years ago, the shadowbolt has proven it's worth time and again, responsible for the devastation of many criminal outposts for such a short time of service, and it's jamming technolagy has proven useful even against the most advanced of scanners.
As for the jammer itself, it essentially works as a blot on the radar. Conventional Scanners pick up a literal lack of anything in an area, and attempts at satallite photos, or any photos for that matter, only catch a veritable 'dead zone' in the picture. Sure, anybody looking out a window will still see it coming, but in the dead of night or out in space, a black dot on a black canvas is awfully hard to see.

Now, this isn't to say no scanners can detect the ship, but the Shadowbolt pilots have come up with a clever, if suicidal, countermeasure against those they know have access to such technolagy.
Kill the engine just before entering scanner range, and simply drift to their target, before gunning the engine once they're within striking distance and rain hell on their target.
Armament:
>>Black Bomb x24
>>>Description: The main weapon of the Shadowbolt, there are 3 types; Standerd (Think Siege Tank explosion x3), Incendiary (Essentially a larger version of the Devil Dog Hellfire), and Plasma (An experimental plasma based explosive based on the weapons of the now-gone protoss).
>>Double-barreled Guass Cannon x4 (One on the tail, one on either side, and one on the top)
>>>Description: Essentially a larger version of the Guass Rifle, mostly used for self-defense in case they're spotted.

Chariot
Class: Dropship
Engine: Promethium-fueled Thruster
Armor: Neosteel
Description: The conventional U.P.A dropship, holds up to 30 soldiers or 10 soldiers and a Leman Russ. It can also be outfitted with a Shadowbolt's Jammer at the cost of 10 seats.
Armament:
>>Guass Cannon x4 (Tail gun, side guns, top gun)

Nyx
Class: Dropship
Crew: 6
Engine: Experimental Plasma Generator
Armor: Reinforced Neosteel
Description: A larger version of the chariot, and the only thing in the U.P.A arsenal capable of transporting a baneblade. It can hold 60 soldiers, 3 leman russes, or a baneblade.
Armament:
>>ATA/ATS Laser battery x4 (Tail gun, Side guns, Top gun)
>>>Description: The same laser batteries used on a battlecruiser. Can have the power cut from them to boost speed.

"Lunar" Class Battlecruiser
Class: Capital Ship
Crew Size: 1,000
Engine/Power Generator: Experimental Plasma Generator x2
Armor: Reinforced Neosteel
Description: A custom version of the battlecruiser, in place of a yamato cannon a Rail Gun sits in it's place, firing neosteel spikes with a 12' width and 32' length at mach 1 at up to 2 shots per minute. It is also capable of being overloaded, firing a single shot at seemingly the speed of light. Unfortunately, this prevents the gun for firing again for at least ten minutes, so it is usually reserved for desperate measures, and when it is done it is used with a spike tipped with adamantine.
Armament:
>>Rail Gun x1 (Located in the frontal hull of the ship)
>>>Description: Check ship description above.
>>ATA/ATS Laser battery x24 (4 on the frontal hull, 8 on the starboard sides, 4 on the rear. All have a 180° pivot point)
>>>Description: The same guns used on your average battlecruiser, except with a little more punch behind them with a plasma generator powering their shots, rather than a conventional electrical generator.

Wow, I really like the idea, but I'm afraid your timing sucks. There's way too many RP's trying to get off the ground right now, not to mention the older ones currently out there. I'd like to join but I've got school, so I'm about maxed out on the number of RP's I can be active in.

Anyway, If this doesn't take off, save it and bring it back later.

I was thinking that, plus, a bunch of RPs seem to be dying, and I'm quite frankly tired of waiting. That's fine by me that you have school, I have the same issue and thus like to limit the RPs I'm in at one time.

Because they did. This isn't actually sc2, just based off it.

Ingenuity, stubbornness, etc. The list goes on.

Humanity has many ways of winning. Our greatest trait as a race is our Tenacity.

Yeah but Zerg would just assimilate that trat aswell as the humans. Personally it would be MORE interesting if humans were the ones beaten and exiled and/or turned into 2nd class citizens as a punishment for well, being d!cks throughout SC considering Kerrigan etc.

Either way, that isn't how the RP is going down, so, pretty much. I don't exactly expect this to take off, but I do hope that you'll all at least give it a chance. :P

OP, I'll watch this thread, and if it picks up I'll see if I can join it without it being too complicated. If not, I'll just watch and have fun.

Think of it like, the stubbornness to never surrender completely, never give up, but at the same time be realistic and realize that some battles must not be fought.

For example, a few hundred Marines and a few Tanks hold a position against thousands of Zerglings, Banelings, and Mutalisks for days, or even weeks while the rest of the fleet gets in position to make a critical strike on a relatively undefended Zerg planet, undetected and unseen. The Marines, Tanks, and Medivacs all die in the end, but they killed so much Zerg and delayed for so long that a critical planet for morphing Broodlords or whatever is now under Terran control.

On the other hand, if a Zerg were in that situation, they would simply retreat and not get that amazing victory at a relatively small cost.

Zerg doesn't have that kind of defensive strength, nor the genius of people like Raynor, Mengsk. Not without the Queen of Blades. Simply, Kerrigan could be killed by whomever, such as the entire Dominion fleet bombarding the surface of Char while Raynor and Kerrigan are still down there, and then the Dominion and/or the UED scatter/destroy all the Zerg and protoss.

Not to mention the Zerg don't understand why humanity always fight, even in the face of impossible odds.

I like how this became a Zerg vs Terran debate. :P

In fact, sometimes Humans fight better under impossible odds with nothing to lose.

It's pretty one-sided IMO. Queen of Blades dead by Dominion bombardment, broken Protoss race slowly overwhelmed, leading to Terran dominance.

Ok, we shall go with that! Now, may we get back to the RP? I understand some people won't be able to...but I still want to try. :P

Understandable, but probably won't be consistent in a PreRP thread.
