Type of Government: Authoritarian Dictatorship/Rebellious Movement
Description of Government: The Yorvian Liberation Front is a collection of the (steadily becoming) humanless cities on Yorva. Its entire society is influenced by racial supremacy, nationalism and the idea of a one nation, one people. Originally a rebellion, the Liberation Front has attracted the disenfranchised, the rich, the political and the violent. From here onward it has been led by one leader, a charismatic and caring man who is determined to see Yorva liberated, though his ideals of peace are that alone, ideals. Everyone surrounding him and the massive mobs of eager youth are unfortunately more inclined on a human extinction.
Main race: Yorvians are humanoid aliens, with two arms, two legs, two hands, five fingers etc. They have sleek fur covering their body so sleek that it is often mistaken as some sort of skin. Despite the fur, they can also have human-like hair grow from their heads, which has the same variation as humans. They have snouts that extend out from their face, as well as two animal-like ears that flicker at the top of their head. Due to rampant modification from this species, a lot of their appearances do not follow logical evolution patterns and can be incredibly varied in shape, size and color.
Minority races: Humans
Demography of Yorva: 55% Humans, 45% Yorvian
Originally, prior to the Human annexation, Yorva was a very different place.
Hedonism was rampant, pleasure was all that mattered and genetic modification was everywhere. Yorvians were desperate to make themselves to seem more beautiful, with advanced technologies giving them long lives, ample food and harvesting their bountiful- if dangerous -planet for more materials. Architecture was about being intriguing visually, the arts from music to traditional painting seeped into daily life, great epics written on a annual basis to be read and enjoyed thoroughly. For what others may seem as a cultural explosion was merely yearly life for Yorvians.
But all this had to come to a close with humanity's annexation. Much has been changed.
The past is not all lost- it still stands, though serving many different purposes now. Yorva was notorious for being the "Brothel of Messier 33" in social circles after it's easy annexation, and has received much traffic since. Yorvians, with all their modifications and treasured culture, had been degraded into a place of drugs and R&R for soldiers to relax after their great crusades into the unknown.
And now, once again, the culture is coming to shift- the Liberation Front is undeniably changing Yorvians into something much more violent. They care solely for themselves now, seeing their beauty as a sign that they were meant to rule the stars, their artists and architects making stylish military uniforms and advanced vehicles with a powerful punch. The people are even more of a weapon, for the hedonism is no longer there, replaced by an even stronger need to kill off any and all humans, to out breed them, to rebuild and conquer all that is around them.
In this era, Yorvians have passed their Age Of Ecstasy- it is time for the Age Of War.
The Rule of the Empire was a brutal destruction of neither people nor cities, but one of identity.
Yorva was one of the first worlds to be annexed, or that is what is taught in schools. Humanity came to this planet and have swiftly annexed it without a single fire being shot, for the Yorvians and hedonistic behavior were eager to interact with a new species from the depths of space, happily accepting the terms of their administration being replaced as long as they were able to live in their bliss and pleasure. Unknown to them, the Emporium of Man's administration team sent to manage Yorva were not of the trustworthy sort, or perhaps the Emporium never planned to follow the deal all along.
Yorva had become like every other world after the brutal colonization by man, Yorvians becoming little more than a object and the planet seen as a world of endless pleasure, technologies confiscated for human study and use. Yorvians were second-rate citizens on their own world, beaten, abused and unable to resist without facing genocide from a flick of a switch. And the natives, despite being their attractive looks, were to die off- they were aliens after all, and humanity had rightful claim over this world. As the population of Yorva grew in humanity's favor, tension began to mount, fights in the streets breaking out. Obviously, humanity won every time.
A collection of Yorvians with great trust from the human administration were signal the open war with a great betrayal. Using a vat-grown test subject and gene-modifying technologies, they created incredibly skilled soldiers, enough to cause a series of strikes that would loosen Human control on Yorva.
Disgusted and horrified, the Planetary Governor of Yorva would swiftly wipe out these advanced soldiers at all costs- and the costs were quite high. A few cities have fallen under Yorvian control, while a single one of these vat-grown soldiers survived to fight another day. The war for civilization itself on this world will spell disaster no matter what happens, short term or long term, there is only doom and death for the future.

[Beneath a introductary paragraph that is standard when confronting the high ranking officials of the EoM is a picture. A Yorvian is shown in native military gear, standing calmly while holding a submachine gun quite alike to a MP7. She is tall, with blond hair and two pointy ears, looking off toward the right of the picture at something off-frame with two purple eyes. Fur is sleek and tan-ish. Her body is pear shaped and well-built.]
Soldiers and law enforcement both have seem to encountered this alien monstrosity, the last of the vat-grown soldiers my lord.
Reports that you have recieved in the past should be able to piece together everything, but due to the nature of your job, I'll give you a short explanation in case those haven't reached your desk.
This beast it he unconventional weapon of the terrorists, having enhanced reflexes that are beyond the normal Yorvian creature. We believe she has eliminated Squads [a large CLASSIFIED is stamped over a bunch of scrambled code, the paragraph continues anyway] during facility's destruction she, like her other kin, did not show any form of emotion. We believe that the beast has been thoroughly brainwashed or indoctrinated to such a degree that basic fears, emotions and thought processes have been removed.
Your have ordered our planetary defense force to find her, to which they have been largely unsuccessful. Casualties have been high and our forces are needing to spread out to deal with this guerrilla war.
The Emporium of Man has given you access to deploy Special Forces. As advisers, we strongly agree with this move and suggest you accept these reinforcements before the rebellion gets out of hand.
Thank you for your time.
//CLOSING FILE// **THE EMPORIUM OF MAN'S REQUEST STANDS, YES, OR NO?** [Click] **YES. CONFIRM?** [Click] *CONFIRMED, TRANSPORT ZETA-223 SHALL ARRIVE NEXT WEEK, THANK YOU.**
**OPENING COMMUNICATIONS WITH LIEUTENANT HAYES FROM [CLASSIFIED]** //So Kuzar, what will it be? I've seen the file.// //Find her, kill her.// //Understood.// **CLOSING COMMUNICATIONS**
**File Report from Governor Kuzar** [The file is opens with a picture of a well dressed Yorvian, he is short, fat, round in shape but with a charming smile. He has no human-like hair, eyes brown and fur grey. He is waving to a crowd, a gathering of Yorvians after the first city fell into their hands. Its clear he has no gene-modifications unlike most of the native population, making him rather unique in appearance]
This is the leader of the rebellion, Tul Konstler. He is fragile, cares too much for his people and loves too much about living, so much so that he lives in complete fear of death or loss. I have met him many times before, do not make a mistake by listening to his words- a master manipulator is his greatest feat, promising peace and democracy but in reality, we've all seen the footage, the Yorvians wish to wipe humanity out.
While his location remains unknown, you, the defense forces, will be locking down every house belonging to Yorvian collaborators to our rule. They cannot be trusted, Tul's influence is great among his species, for their minds are exceedingly small and so easily tricked. If anyone has any information on him, find them, capture them and interrogate through the most violent means possible. We need to send a message to this rebellion in blood.
If you find his family, you know what to do. And remember to film it and send it to a broadcasting team.
Originally one of the most trustworthy Yorvians to Kuzar's rule over Yorva, Ja'la was apart of the Alien Defense Institution, learning to support the human military by serving as a tactical adviser and logistical officer. From his early teens to late seventies, he has accumulated enough experience to be a kill-on-sight target once he betrayed, knowing the ins-and-outs of the Emporium of Man's more basic weaponry and tactics.
He was convinced to work with the rebellion during the fall of the first city, captured by the elite vat-grown squad while the chaos ensued. Realizing that he and his people were to eventually be replaced, Ja'la Uris is now at the forefront of the idea of a human extinction, fighting a brutal war with any means and using all tactics and weapons at his disposal as General of the Liberation Front's army.
He stands at an average height, well built and with broad shoulders. His eyes are a brown, with no human-like hair and brown fur.
As it stands, there are little to no ships that the Liberation Front controls. Sao seeks to change that.
Sao is the oldest of all the important leaders of the Liberation Front, and has been harassing the Emporium of Man for her entire life. Despite this, she has no experience in commanding a actual ship- though her knowledge on them is endless, the Yorvians currently are struggling to wrangle control over mere corvettes. While planning and coming up with ways for General Uris's troops to board vessels stuck on the ground, Sao also manages communications and intelligence, gathering and going through material that could be useful in the fight against the EoM.
She is quite old and lost any youth in her looks, with short grey hair, a thin and delicate body and two brown eyes.
Description of Military: The military might of the Liberation Front stands in it's infantry more so than anything else.
Having been waging a war for years that has finally mounted into a full blown conflict, the footsoldiers of the Front are guerrilla experts, able to hide in the tiniest of crevices in wait to ambush. Their aim is poor, but their morale is endless, fueled by the desire to have a galaxy without humanity to boss them around. Equipment varies wildly from soldier to soldier, some wearing looted armor stolen off the standard EoM soldiers and using their weapons, while others use homemade smoke grenades while wearing jackets and masks. Despite their variety, they're nonetheless dangerous when put together and eager for bloodshed.
Battles are fought in two different ways- either hit and run, or full blown riot/Stalingrad-esque charging. The latter only occurs when they feel confident enough to take a city, while the first is the most common. In hit and runs, the whole point is attrition where an explosive will be detonated, a patrol/vehicle will be destroyed and a firefight will ensue where all humans are to be eliminated. Once that is done or when human reinforcements are soon to arrive, the Yorvians will pull back and retreat into the urban mess that is their colossal cities.
Navy wise, ships will be designed in being easy to produce and control.
Frigates and corvettes will be cheap, easy to destroy but much easier to modify, given the ability for customization and repairs in void combat. They'll be mass produced, but from there upward things get expensive, with typical ship classes thrown out the window. Much of the Liberation Front's naval warfare is to be based off of boarding craft, with the escorts protecting colossal transport ships armed with little void-worthy weapons. Instead, these transport ships will be carrying all the ground troops, who will launch themselves out of boarding craft and bury into the enemy's hull, filling the ship with waves of eager combatants.
Technology: Yorva used to be a place of advanced modifications and bright minds, it has since degraded below the the EoM's level thanks to most of it being stolen. Nowadays, the Liberation Front's most advanced minds are focused on reproducing the vatgrown soldiers rather than advancing technology, so most weapons and equipment will be straight up stolen from the EoM, reverse engineered for Yorvian use.
Additional: The Yorvian homeworld has incredibly brutal wildlife and vegetation, almost the entire world is jungle for a reason. The entire population- both human and Yorvian -live in walled cities, passage between this cities is only done by air or in large heavily armed convoys.
I probably should've asked some questions before tossing ideas around, but this is what I got. Hope you like, though I'll change as needed.
@Sophrus I was really glad that you finally contacted the Mekhar, as they are vital to defeat the Empire (really cannot see how you could do it without them). of course I'll be playing them as well ;D
However, the last part infuraites me. Do you think that if the EOM had issued enviromental hazard gears (AKA gas masks) to civilians on the planet of the Revghul, then they'd forget to do that on a SPACE STATION above the GARGAN homeworld who breathe toxic air?
Of course, we can go with this, but its gonna be the same outcome as it was with the Relicans who got a present of 3 orbiting fleets and a few thousand extra EOM militia in their cities. If you're okay with it then I'm am ready to dish out the pain
Well, my justification is that rebel factions on the planet had never tried anything quite so bold as to attack a space station, and the pirates avoid them as it would cause an escalation and possibly a huge search for the hidden base, therefor the space stations have grown somewhat complacent. The station would be surely be equiped with chlorine scrubbers to safeguard from a leaky gargan breathing apparatus and systems to prevent dangers of a major leak, but those systems would have been damaged from the explosion or overwhelmed with the sheer quantity of chlorine.
Beyond that the tanks are supposed to hold tonnes of chlorine that would bring the atmosphere of the station to leathal levels very rapidly, coupled with a suprise attack disrupting normal activity.
but i can reduce the numbers if they bother you too much, it wouldnt change much because im sure the empire would be very, very, very displeased with the attack regardless of casualties.
@6slyboy6 Thanks! I'll see about posting the sheet into the Characters tab and getting a IC post up.
Edit: Aaand posted. Sorry for a less leader-focused post, though they'll be focused on next I'm sure, just need an event to kick everything off and it'll get into all the politics that ensue. "Politics" More like panicking that they're biting off more then they can chew against humanity.
Ohhoo. Best hope the Order doesn't visit, they would easily thrive on your world. Also they love Emprah, so any dishonor is ground for immediate Spartan charge followed by a Spartan kick off a cliff.
Bring it you bunch of crippled knights! I hope you like rocks cause you're gonna get very closely aquinted with quite a few of 'em! (Taunting to see what reaction will come and generally just making it harder on my guys cause disguised slavery isn't enough..)
