    Their captain decided not to run so she could search it for loot.
    Roger Wilco only asked to see their weapons fire so he could see if they shot any green beams.
    He saw most of their beam weapons fire, but not all.

    The Tempest is equipped with a beam weapon, I think it's called the Wave Motion Somethingorother. It takes time to charge before it fires, so they didn't use it in the battle scene.

    On the bridge of the human ship, before it was destroyed? They detected a very large charge building in the alien ship that fired on them. It took several seconds for them to detect the charge, and several more for them to identify it as charging a weapon.

    The bugs do not have an equivalent to the Wave Motion Gun. Only the Elves have a beam weapon that takes serious charge-time.

    A weapon they decided not to use when the human survivor, who saw the beam that blew away his ship, was on their bridge.

    And now they're rushing him off the bridge. Maybe they need to use this weapon the next time around, since the Umiak are using superheavies.

    Wave Loom, or what was it?
    >> Anonymous 08/17/11(Wed)19:23 No.15973313

    Wave loom is something bigger than what killed the human scoutship, that weapon did relatively little damage (cut it in half, left survivors and a clean hulk) and would be little use against screened and much larger and more advanced Umiak warships as a superweapon like the Wave Loom. Bellarmine got probably plasma focus'd.

    >The idea behind the plasma focus (or plasma beam) is that you have some mechanism for focusing plasma into a tight beam over very long distances. I imagine some sort of "carrier wave" that accomplishes this long-range cohesion... here we're talking pretty high tech, even for the aliens, so only the Umiak and Historians have really mastered this technique. The advantages of the plasma focus are very high power and very good armor penetration/ablation; the disadvantage is limited range. The Historian version uses a different focusing mechanism than the Umiak version, and has significantly longer range.

    >When the Historians gave the Loroi the plans for a dumbed-down version of their plasma focus, it was still too advanced for the Loroi to copy exactly. They could only get it to work in short bursts. The result was the Loroi pulse cannon, which sends pulses of plasma down the carrier wave to the target; it doesn't do as much damage as the Umiak plasma focus, but does significant damage at much longer ranges.

    1. Nobody knew how advanced the human ship might be. It could have been using some sort of supershield with amazing superadvanced armor as far as the attackers knew. Hit it with your best shot.

    2. You don't know what kind of hole the Wave Thing would make. You just know that it would punch through heavy shields and armor. We just know that the beam that hit the Bellarmine blew right through it and that the next shot ignited their fuel.

    3. It took minutes--MINUTES--between the first hit and Alex watching the second hit. Damage Control had to suit up and all that. The Historians would have been able to rapid-fire their plasma focus, and the Umiak would have had many plasma focuses to fire. There would have been a handful of SECONDS between hits. Alex would not have survived.

    Someone hit them with a slow gun.

    >It's meant to be a long range, area of effect weapon. I think of it in some ways like the German railroad guns of WWI -- fearsome, but with significant practical limitations that hinder its effectiveness.

    The effect on Bellarmine, and the features of the gun (area of effect, inaccurate) make it even less likely to be what hit the humans (from a long range, and accurately with "clean" effect).

    Beryl said that the Tempest's sensors detected the shot. So there was no stealthiness or undetectedness to it, and whoever was firing it would know that.

    Beryl also said they could not positively identify it, but that it was consistent with a plasma focus.
    Beryl looked unhappy when she was saying that.
    Was she perhaps upset about lying to the sexy alien?

    Just sixty kilometers.
    And instead of making a single clean hole just through the beam's area of travel, it split the entire ship in half.
    And look at how broad that beam is. Bellarmine is 190 meters long. It's fat and thick and not particularly focused for a focused particle beam from SIXTY KILOMETERS AWAY, especially a beam meant to be fired from like TEN THOUSAND KILOMETERS OR MORE.

    Also, looking through the combat sim, Pulse Cannons, the Tempest's other big offensive weapons? Don't work on targets at less than 3 hexes.

    Plasma foci would work though, so maybe...it was not Tempest?

    Also the short range wave loom would eradicate Bellarmine with those multipliers, being described by the author as an "area of effect weapon" in the story, and even pondering about giving it an area of effect in-game (which means MASSIVE AoE9, the damage done to the ship now feels even less likely to be caused by that weapon.

    Shittiest fucking webcomic ever. The slow production amplifies the shittyness, but it's not the cause of the shittyness. Or even because the aliens are unimaginative, or the dialogue is boring... No, it's shitty because:


    This is not shit you pull in chapter fucking one. This is shit you pull in chapter 7. Maybe chapter 4 if its fast paced.
    Why? It begs to be retconned. It NEEDS to be retconned.

    You have a alien /machine /plot device capable of creating a reality that's so real you can not tell the difference between it and actual reality. The Matrix and its simulated reality. Blade Runner and the so-human-machines you can't tell them and actual humans apart; that even the Alien series has... How many StarTrek: Next Generation and Voyager episodes revolved around the holodeck and all the wonderful reality warping horrors it can produce? Don't forget the one TNG episode where an alien produced a psychic hologram within a hologram.

    It's cliche, it's stale, and it's going to get retconned... And it's going to take forever to learn the truth about wether or not it WOULD get that retcon, because its production speed amplifies the shittyness.

    Obviously they spent some time in the medbay, probably taking turns riding his morning wood until that situation was taken care of, before they verified that he was fine.

    The psychic powers section of Insider indicates that they think of psychic masking as a psychic power; it says something along the lines of "even exceptionally powerful Loroi have trouble masking themselves for long." Meaning that the more powerful you are, the better your mask can be. So Alex should look like fucking Nyarlathotep to them right now.
    You gotta put him in a cell after you figure out that he's psychic-immune, because you don't know what other psychic powers he might have. He could use his superior alien telekinesis to break the restraints.

    You've at least got to admit it helps tell the audience that these are not nice girls.
    They'd just met Alex like ten pages ago and they RAPED him.
    Which was hot, but also sorta a little wrong I guess.

    >with those multipliers,
    20xCharge at 0-10 hexes. Assuming one charge, that's 20 damage.

    The upper-tier Umiak Plasma Focuses cab do 24 damage at 0 hexes, and the Historian Plasma Focus is supposed to do a whole lot more but isn't filled in. Plasma Focuses do additional Armor Ablating damage, I can't see anything saying that the Wave Loom does that, and human ships are only protected by armor and hull points. So the ship is actually less likely to survive a Historian plasma shot than a single-charge Wave Loom shot, by virtue of both damage points and the respective weapons' effects on their defensive systems.

    Area-of-Effect could be a red herring, or it could apply at longer range than 0 hexes (partly because holy suicide Batman, how would you even fire such a beam; also partly because if it fires exotic particles and antiparticles or something they could be contained well enough to not interact to do whatever area of effect thing he has in mind until after the beam's passed the range at which the AoE would harm the ship that fired it, or something). Or it might be that normally the gun would fire multiple beams in a burst at once, simulating AoE without actually doing it.

    Not really. Production typically just out-expands research places then wins. Long game benefits don't really help if you lose at the start.

    That said, I'm reasonably sure the comic isn't going to be about one of the races zerg rushing us with better empire start conditions. Everyone is in a better position to beat us, but their victories would be boring from a narrative perspective. Human victory would be interesting from a narrative perspective. Hence, I'm using meta knowledge to assume that, if the author wants to make an interesting story, humans will end up broken-good.

    Lensmen isn't new even today. "Old magazine-published stories" and "old serials from popular periodicals" wouldn't translate.
    "Old stories" is a decent way of getting that across.

    Maybe Alex is thinking of pulp sci-fi. Maybe he likes Philip K. Dick and H. P. Lovecraft and thus has a passing familiarity with the era.

    By Alex's time, the era of pulps, from 1910-ish to 1980-ish would be more than two hundred years in the past.

    The new Umiak tech doesn't cloak ships, it blocks Loroi farseers from detecting Umaik ships. The only reason that the Loroi have been able to hold the Umiak back is because they can detect where Umiak fleets will strike. The Loroi aren't strong enough to have a fleet defending every border system, so they keep them all at fortresses and send almost everything out to stop Umiak fleets when they're detected. With the new Umiak tech they can hit border systems without warning, destroying the picket force, bombing the planets, then just keep going until the Loroi can get their shit together. It was said by that Umiak commander that they had done just this.

    You want to know the best part about the whole "humans immune to telepathy" bit? He's straight up plagiarizing Alan Dean Foster's "The Damned Trilogy" -- on first contact with humanity, the female scientist on board the scout ship attempted telepathic contact with the guy they picked up. She was in a coma for a few days afterwards if I remember correctly--it's heavily implied that whatever telepathy relies on rides straight through the "reptilian brain," the feral subconscious that holds all of man's baser instincts. It's described as an all-consuming rage, like the fire used in the comic here.

    >Despite possession of an independent military, the Morat are now almost wholly dependent on the Umiak for their survival.

    >the Tithric desired to remain neutral in the war, but did not have the political unity to make neutrality work.
    > attacks finally unified the Tithric politically and prompted the formation of a stronger central government (and a formal alliance with the Umiak), but it was too late: the Loroi under Admiral Sunfall razed the entire region.

    >the Tanuki valued their freedom but recognized that their only way of retaining some self-determination would be to aid the Umiak as vigorously as they could.

    What I want you to do right now is try to understand what sort of fandom he's acquired.

    >A stunning online comic with plenty of hard science. The map is approximately 35 light years in diameter, and is available in both static and rotatable forms (Java required). I also tried making my own map.

    It wasn't enough to post Outsider references on Atomic Rockets proper, oh no.
    Atomic Rockets guy decided to not just fanboy it up for Outsider, but to fanboy it up to such an extreme level that he would attempt to make a STAR CHART for it. A DIFFERENT star chart than the 3D Java star chart that Outsider ALREADY HAS. God knows why. Maybe math is how Atomic Rockets guy has fun.

    This is the sort of thing that Outsider's fans do.

    He probably received obsessive e-mails saying "now wait a minute..." from biochemically-inclined people nitpicking Beryl's use of the term "biochemical differences" instead of "behavioral differences."

    Just try to put yourself in the shoes of a webcomic guy who has to deal with that sort of feedback for his hobby.

    It's really no wonder he draws fantasy stuff so often. Nobody goes "wait a second sir according to my calculations..." for wizard battles.

    Fuckin' /tg/. I love you guys.
    Where else are you going to find a random argument over which set of racial perks are the best in MoO2?

    That said: Unification / Prod+ almost always wins out over silly things like Creative. There's a reason fan-patches increased the cost of Unification.
    Against bots? Creative does win the day but with Humans, its a different story.

    I ran a 3v3 multiplayer game of MoO2 once.
    Can't remember what the other side had, but the Grand Alliance I was in consisted of:
    Researcher Race (Creative, demo, Sci+1): Researched shit. Gave it to the rest of us.
    Production Race (Uni, Prod+2): Built shit.
    Warrior Race (Warlord, Ship Attack/defense++/telepathic?): Took control of some of Prod race's ships via boarding actions to supplement own forces and generally kicked the shit out of everything with supporting fleets.

    God, I miss MoO2.

    There are males. They are smaller and weaker than the females, combining that with their rarity gets them special status where they are more or less sequestered for the most part. They get twitchy if they go for a day or two without sex though that's as much cultural training as biological. One of them will be joining the crew later.

    When Beryl mentioned Loroi male's limbs were shorter, I imagined that Loroi Males look like dwarves with a beard that extends into a lion-like mane.

    The idea came from the thread that suggested that Elves and Dwarves were one species with the females, Elves, and the males, Dwarves. And the description of the males behavior: one male per lots of women, women primarily due the warmaking/hunting, but men are extremely territorial sounded like lions.

    And I bet the Loroi Male at one point will strike her in front of Roger Wilco, and a fist fight will break out between the two. Followed by legal shenanigans, followed by Beryl exploiting the one (duel/territorial battle for wives) loophole to keep Roger from getting spaced, but as a side effect Beryl and Roger will be considered married because he won her fair and square.

    Reproduction for the Loroi is strictly regulated. Loroi females really only get access to a male in order to procreate. After which the baby becomes a ward of the state and neither the father nor the mother take care of it.

    The duel is an ancient custom, back when a stable pool of males was a necessity for any self sufficient tribe, but each tribe could only really sustain a certain number of non-working males. Males needed a way to escape conditions that they considered sub-par, whether their home tribe mistreated them or they felt they weren't given their due.

    Fun fact, Fireblade hasn't had a child. Fate conspired to keep her from having enough time. Given that sex is only for fertilization in Loroi society, you can infer that she's either infertile or potentially dangerous to have close contact with.

    They have an 8-to-1 sex ratio. Jardin is going to be passed around like a space doobie.

    I thought about this a while ago, and decided that the details of personal hygene and sanitation would not be brought up as issues (as much as possible) in the comic. We can infer that these things are being taken care of off-camera. Similarly, Alex won't be growing a beard. We can guess that he had some sort of depilatory treatement, or that he has requested and got access to some sort of Loroi apparatus (or maybe he's just not "manly" enough to grow a beard yet).

    The deterioration of Alex's uniform over the course of the adventures to come is, however, something I do plan to address in the comic."

    The Loroi combat knives can double as shaving razors, apparently.

    According to the author, Alex isn't manly enough to have a beard.
    Probably a good thing, we want our ambassador to look like a Loroi male, not a proud Loroi warrior.
    We can confuse their sexuality with our male war-beards later, after we get a nice fat treaty.

    No matter how hard she tried, Fireblade couldn't hide it. She could conceal her precise intent, but every excuse she made was tainted by an undeniable tension. Not that it mattered. By the time the other Loroi on the ship realized was she was up to, it would be too late.

    One Alex Jardin wouldn't even acknowledge the fiery Loroi's entrance into his room. He was too accustomed to them buzzing in and out. All eager, all terrified, of this new being. Fireblade was not one to let her fear rule her existence. If she could not rid herself of it.. she would have to conquer it. The distinct sound of the door sliding open went unheeded. Alex continued to categorize the quality of the food he'd been given by his caretakers.

    Female gorillas are not much smaller than humans but male gorillas have dicks less than 2 inches long. The "females are the same size so the junk has to be the same size" argument doesn't hold water. That being said the WHY isn't important, Arioch says they're the same size so they're the same size.

    Alex didn't need telepathy to figure out she was annoyed. Fireblade's deep voice was more gruff than usual, and a certain edge tainted it. Alex turned slightly to speak to the intruder, "No. I'm just not used to this.. fruit. This one sort of looks like a-" He wasn't allowed to finish his sentence thanks to the boot that collided with his back, but he immediately started to scramble to his feet, "What the hell!"

    Yet he never made it off the floor. Fireblade dove on top of him, holding one hand to Alex's throat and pinning him down on his back. A knee, similarly, forced between his legs in an obvious threat to his manhood. Not that he could resist. He could feel her her superior, highly trained, strength in her grip and her arm. Any Loroi warrior took her training seriously. Fireblade much more so.

    "Quiet! I would prefer to use as few words as possible in dealing with you. We cannot speak mind to mind, but perhaps action will speak loudly enough."

    Fireblade then lightened her grip to allow Alex to breath. Which he only treated as an opportunity.

    "Nng. Sorry, I'm not into bearded ladies. I saw one once at a carnival when I was six.. but it didn't do anything for me."

    Fireblade gripped Alex's jaw tightly, causing a wince of pain from him, "Cute," She didn't know what a carnival was, but she knew an insult when she heard one "I'm already aware of the status of your native women. I find it hard to believe your people could be satisfied." She used her free hand to guide one of Alex's up to her face. Fireblade alone decided to let her beard grow in fully. Other Loroi were content to leave a token attempt, but she was a proud warrior. She forced his fingers to run through the hair covering her jaw. It wasn't as stiff or scratchy as he expected. Somewhat soft and luxurious.. as well taken care of as any other part of Fireblade's body.

    "I'll show you what a real woman is."

    "G.. get off me!" Alex barely managed to say through his teeth.

    Alex feebly tried to throw off his assailant. Fireblade would grant his request, but gripped the front of his shirt and took the entire front of it up with her as she stood. The ripping sound resounded clearly through the room, and the chunk of cloth was tossed carelessly to the side. Alex's hairless pecks and firm stomach sent a thrill through Fireblade she had not felt since first seeing him as a prisoner. Once she had never felt before then.

    Alex didn't question her dazed expression. He took the moment to sweep the red headed Loroi's legs out from under her and leap on top to restrain her. Yet he didn't even lay a hand on her before he was thrust off by a force he could only feel as it crashed against his body. In the next moment, Fireblade was on top of him again. Her long trail of read hair spilled over her shoulder and pooled beside Alex's head on the floor.

    She didn't look happy.

    "You'll learn to respect me. You're already mine, Alex Jardin. It would be easier if you just accepted this." Before he could question her, she gripped the back of his head and pulled him up into a kiss. The iron grip of the Loroi ensured he would feel her fiery beard caressing him ever so gently as their lips touched. It tickled strangely. When she released him, he dropped to the floor breathlessly. Too confused to say anything even if he could. In truth she didn't want him to accept it. She wanted him to struggle. Without that strength, it was meaningless. Loroi males were so delicate.. so easy to break. Worthless.

    "Crazy bitch!"

    A desperate fist very nearly found her head. Once again she had gotten too lost in thought. If Alex hadn't shouted, he might have hit her.

    "Good!" A low tone purred into Alex's ear. The hair of her chin barely tickled his lobe as Fireblade whispered. "Struggle," she flipped him over and drew one arm around his neck and pulled him back to sit on her lap, "So me your strength. -Then- submit it to me. I'll make you give in! I'll make you be mine."

    A fire was in her veins unlike any she had ever felt before. Her senses forced into a keenness not brought on by any battle she had been in before.

    Fireblade forced herself to focus and took advantage of Alex's confusion to remove the tattered remains of his shirt. Her hand next roamed down and slipped into the waistline of his jumpsuit, and a pleased, if not sadistic, grin formed at what she found, "I thought you didn't like your women with beards, Alex Jardin."

    Alex plied his full strength against her in an instant, nearly wrenching himself from her grasp. There was a moment of struggle where Fireblade desperately tried to keep her hold on him. She regained control by wrapping both legs around his waist and clamping down. Alex could hardly believe such slender legs were so strong! He could hardly breath again.

    "F.. fuck you."

    "Not yet. You have to earn the right to see my other beard."

    Her tone didn't waver, but Alex's attention was drawn to the feeling of heat pressed on his lower back. The heat radiating from between her legs betrayed her as anything but calm. The more he thought about it, the more he swore he could feel the quiver of anticipation in the Loroi's toned body.

    "Ah, there it is again." She taunted.

    "Dammit! Go down! You're not supposed to like this!"

    We're so gay, the straight people like traps.

    We don't even know what to call people who like women...

    There was a curious tug at his ear, and the now familiar tickle of red beard on the back of his neck, before he could think of a proper reply. Fireblade's teeth gently nibbled on the edge of Alex's curiously rounded ears. It was a minor difference between them, but it endlessly fascinated her. She continued this activity till she felt Alex relax, and his reward was the withdraw of her legs to allow him to breath. In his weakened state, he wasn't able to make the escape he would like.

    Hands slowly roamed through Alex's hair before Fireblade slipped out from under him. Before long, she stood towering above him, and all his addled mind allowed him to do was stare back up at her in wait for her next move. This came when a foot lifted and pressed her boot against his crotch. A momentary wince followed, but Alex found himself able to relax as the boot slowly rubbed against his hardened manhood. The reddening of his face must have betrayed him because she smirked and started to remove her uniform.

    The miscellaneous bits of armor went first. Just enough removed so she could pull open the front of her suit. Her slender fingers took pleasure in slowly peeling it open to first reveal once smooth blue shoulder. Again Alex marveled at how she could be so strong yet show so little sign of it, but his eyes were soon torn away to her chest. The suit slowly revealing perfectly perky tits, but she stopped just as the edge of her nipple came into view.

    "Are you enjoying yourself, Alex Jardin?"

    My bluff was called.

    Internet law forced my hand to this. We have no one to blame but ourselves.

    He only continued to stare up at her slack jawed and dumbstruck as she peeled herself the rest of the way out of her uniform. Smooth blue skin greeted his eager eyes till the sudden appearance of the fire covering of her crotch. Once freed she got to her knees in front of him and forced her way between his legs. She pulled open his own uniform until granted access to his hardened manhood. Fireblade then pushed herself forward.. letting the heat of her arousal press firm against Alex's cock. He tensed at the sensation of her touch, and his cock jumped dangerously against her.

    Fireblade merely smirked again and pulled away. Soon back to her feet and slipping back into her uniform.

    "B.. but.. I.. wha," He couldn't seem to do much besides babble despite every effort.. so he only stared at her cruelly concealed body.

    "You," She grabbed his hand and once again forced the fingers through her thick beard, "I will be waiting in my quarters. You will beg me."

    Alex brought on a slow nod

    "Good," Fireblade moved to the door of his room, which responded with a distinct swish of it opening, "It is there I will teach you what I expect of my males."

    I'm doing something even MORE evil.

    I'm cutting the story off there.

    I'll write another installment sometime, maybe. I'll think of some good tortures to put Alex through for his training to be a proper waifu for Fireblade.

    Aaaaand... archived.


    It is a basic presumption that this is getting emailed to Arioch. Because how could it not?

    Yeah, I think I've outdone myself this time.

    Leo and Lilly? Baby stuff. A dwarf fortress dwarf gurran laggan ripoff mining the heavens for dragons? Piffle. Little Girl 40k? Complete with Caiphas and Jurgen having a tea party? PAH.

    ...I don't think I can forgive myself for this one.
