    Previous Thread:

    Several plasma crabs turn on you, firing shot after shot that melts into the walls. Several explode upon the explosion of the high explosive but almost immediately, more emerge from the hidden confines, forcing you to take cover.

    No injuries so far.

    Further update about to come soon.

    No, they're currently outside of the metal hallway, being held off by the swarms of plasma crabs and assassin drones.

    In any case, Thatcher, Theta and Helus stand by the entrance to hold off the approaching drones. Lightning sparks between them and they fall down, trembling and twitching before finally being scrambled and deactivated by the EMP guns. Ten, twenty, thirty, forty - you lose count of how many you're taking down. They have to climb over their comrades. However, you're gaining your own injuries.

    A stray powered blade glides across the face of Thatcher when it gets too close, tearing out an eye and leaving a scar down a cheek before another blade comes from the same drone, to impale him through his shoulder.

    Helus recieves a ball of molten plasma to his leg. Nothing is felt. It simply glides through effortlessly and the useless limb falls to the floor, with Helus falling back.

    Another powered assassin blade strikes Archer, impaling him through a lung once it gets too close.

    More and more injuries mount up while the others desperately tear and cut at the cables with lasers. Eventually, one of them snaps but - nothing happens. As far as you can see, the field of black light remains, an ominous sphere covering something, even though one of the two cables has been cut.

    Helus has been INCAPACITATED
    Archer has been INCAPACITATED
    Thatcher has been INCAPACITATED

    Seven more drones have been lost.

    Each room contains dozens of turrets, blasting at anything that even steps near the entrances - cloaked or otherwise. It appears that their sensory equipment is truly wonderful.

    The second cable is slowly being cut, by lasers - you can already see the field of black light shimmering.

    Joanna recieves a sphere of plasma, unfortunately - an attempt to dive to the side saves her from certain death but instead, her arm is taken off. After a reasonably respectable kill count of seven, she's down and out.

    More and more and more grenades are thrown down the corridor, more and more drone corpses pile up, dozens upon dozens upon dozens of them - but they just keep on coming, eliminating more and more of you.

    Irony manages to successfully pull back the incapacitated - thanks to his intervention, you are sure to live through this day!

    But things turn for the better when the squaddie makes his suicide run. One sphere of plasma slams into his side, leaving a gruesome hole. Another into his shoulder and another into his leg. The rookie falls over and then.


    Just as the cable is cut, too. The black field flickers one last time and drops completely, revealing a brain in a floating glass case, filled with preservative fluid. There's no more plasma fire. There's no other attacks, the corridor's too clogged with corpses for any panels to open - all that is left is to finish the brain.

    3) Blowing up all our facilities in a single gigantic explosion when the Head of Hajjar affairs comes to collect the core
    4) Getting said Head actually into a facility
    5) Getting the fuck off this rock

    Now, the plan is as follows: We buy clones of ourselves, get some new identities, wait for the Head of Hajjar affairs to get here,then get him down to one of our facilities. After that, we need to remotely detonate all our shit in a pattern that looks enough like a concentrated attack, our clones in the base gives enough evidence that we died too. Then, we get Uni-Peace to take the credit.

    We develop the FTL drive first.

    The ship we build will use the FTL drive and the Kil'thweq propulsion system. It will be large, large enough to house all of our drones. WE DONT WANT TO TAKE OUR GAMMA WEAPONRY WITH US, SINCE IT IS HIGHLY ILLEGAL, but we can keep the knowledge of how to produce it. Lots of storage space for all the metal we can take.

    Each starship starts with:
    5000 TONS Cargo Space.
    5000 UNITS Fuel Tank.
    10 Persons Living Space.
    100 Synth Space.
    2 Locomotion Slots.
    2 Weapon slots.

    This beginning starship costs 500 TONS and 1000 UNITS to build and 1000 UNITS per day to maintain.
    Fuel is taken directly from the fuel tank.
    If you're using fusion batteries, 1 fusion battery replaces 500 UNITS per day.
    A weapon slot counts as either a battery of normal terrestial weapons or as a single terrestrial superweapon.
    Every time a FTL engine is used, it spends an additional 5000 UNITS of fuel, even if fusion batteries as being used.
    You can invent other forms of plating, other onboard facilities and other types of slot at your own whim.
    You need to state where you wish to place the weapon slots (port, starboard, topside, underside and prow) and whether as locked or as a turret.
    The fuel cost to construct equals the fuel cost to maintain the starship for a day from here on.

    Here is what you can add, and for what price:
    Additional 5000 TONS Cargo Space: 125 TONS and 250 UNITS
    Additional 5000 UNITS Fuel Tank: 125 TONS and 250 UNITS
    Additional 10 Persons Living Space: 125 TONS and 250 UNITS

    There's no limit to how many of any slots you have. It'll make your ship gigantic.

    Tonnage / (Locomotion Number * 2.5) = Speed Rating

    100-199: Fast
    200-299: Average

    Also, let me inform you about the three main FTL engines available:

    Hyperdrive: Your typical Star Wars thing. It requires no gravitational fields to be present otherwise it messes things up completely. So, you can't jump if you're close to a planet or near the galactic core. This is most popular.

    Inertialess Propulsion: You keep on accelerating and accelerating and accelerating and accelerating, going above and beyond the speed of light - however, going through certain obstacles such as suns is still severely damaging.

    Horizon Engine: This is highly dangerous and highly unstable Martian technology that takes physics by the horns and fucks it like an animal. It's by far the fastest method of transportation and it tears two holes in reality. One that objects go into, one that objects come out of. The wormholes created are approximately sixty miles in radius - Martians have been known to use this to devastating effect in 'tactical retreats'. Requires ablative plating otherwise it severely damages the ship in the process.

    Also, I spent about an hour before the game sketching up some rough information about the galaxy you folks live in.

    New Earth Republic

    A democratic nation with many political parties. It is led by a democratically elected president and a senate. Each system and station has a senator to represent it - who is also democratically elected.

    271 Systems
    763 Space Stations


    Core Systems Alliance

    A union of systems and stations who resolve situations democratically. Leadership varies between each system and station - the Core Systems Alliance is a melting pot of political systems.

    248 Systems
    689 Space Stations


    Terilian Sovereignty

    A dictatorship reigned over by the Terilian Emperor, a position that is completely hereditary. Each system or station is lorded over by dukes and barons who all answer to the Terilian Emperor.

    211 Systems
    682 Space Stations


    Ul'tek Systems

    A system where the lower, working caste ruled over by the leading caste by use of pheromones. Each system and mothership is ruled over by a council of leading caste prawns. These councils form a senate that runs the Ul'tek Systems.

    183 Systems
    439 Motherships


    United Socialist States of Mars

    A single party system led by a chairman. Each system and space station has a minister who is selected from the party's elite by the chairman's office. The chairman elects his executive office and also elects his successor.

    72 Systems
    173 Space Stations


    Brown Space

    A completely anarchic area of space controlled by pirates, corsairs and reavers. There's no concept of leadership or order and there's no official political system for Brown Space.

    67 Systems
    Unclassified number of Space Stations and/or Motherships

    >Cancel Gamma Superweapon. It's a basically a war crime guys.
    No, don't cancel it. We don't ever have to build any, and it might be handy someday.

    I would like to order research done on a smaller kinetic shield- one small enough to be installed into a stealth suit, if possible. Construct whatever labs are needed.

    Also, a pulse laser superweapon, please. Again, construct labs as necessary.

    Good call.

    Okay, build 15 colossus haulers, 15 colossus harvesters, and send them to join the ones at the mothership. We can recover fusion batteries from drones, right?

    Send the Freeman gun slaver colossi to make a massive native slave run.

    Lets rock that shit. Make this bitch impregnable.

    ...so much stuff we need to research... We need to find someone we can just steal it from.

    Agreed. Reduce crew quarters to 100, increase locomotion slots to 100 and increase weapon slots to 75 and 25 (Hyperweapon).

    We might as well call Core Mining, Nebula Estates, and New Earth Missions, to say "Hello, we just saved all of you, how was your day?"

    I think the stuff we have is pretty state of the art. We should research a combination of the kinetic and energy shields. That way we can have a shield that protects against both while having the ability to have backup shield generators.
