This galaxy isn't yours!




"Humans. These wretched and filthy creatures appeared in our galaxy 400 years ago and brought the end of an era. As soon as their ships appeared they began to colonize the empty planets and conquer those that already had owners. They were merciless and killed trillions in their galactic conquest. Some of us fought back of course, but every time it looked like they were on the run, more ships appeared out of the blue and slaughtered our forces. Even our galaxy's own large empires couldn't strike a deal with the humans, and ended up dying out after so many dynasties. In a last ditch attempt the small kingdoms of the galaxy united under the Free Planets Allinace to deter these invaders. They failed. Now we must praise the name of THEIR emperor, speak THEIR language, eat THEIR food, wear THEIR clothes and OBEY THEM. But we've had enough, and this time, they'll see what the many races of the Triangulum are capable of. Carry these seeds of rebellion and spread the word: We are not broken, but reforged! Glory to the Rebellion!"

Introduction


Welcome, welcome, welcome!

I see you have a keen eye for RPs because you joined this merry little thread that I made. And you probably also know about the bee movie memes. Now let's get down to business shall we?

This is just another one of the many ideas that I'd like to RP here on the site, but this one is fresh out of the office, so the ink on the "approved" sign is still not dry. What is this you ask? Oh well there isn't a simpler answer.

This my fellow RPers is a SCi-FI NRP, like so many on the website. However this one is different in ONE aspect from the rest of the now popular fallen empire trend (or that I have seen). This time, the empire is at its finest, their numbers many, their spirits high, their praises loud. And this is what you must shatter! Breek their will and reclaim what was yours once. Your ancient lands can only be stripped from your people for so long! Show these intruders that you mena business.

Establish your kingdom once again and bring about a new era where your species rules your lands, and one by one liberates the Enpire's systems to reestablish yourself, and gain more than you could before.

Gameplay


What you will be making is a simple nation of your own kind. Your species, culture, technology and other aspects are completely up to you to decide. You can even play as some renegade humans if you wish to! You will starty by getting some small territory and a miniscule assault squad to begin operations. You may weaken the empire by striking their facilities, or shooting down their convoy disguised as pirates. HOWEVER! The empire will not be some kind of an AI, so random assortement of troops made up by you. I will with my Co-GMs personally oversee the events in the empire. Too much ruckus or scheming and the Empire will give you a nice little wake up call. The bigger you are teh more you have to face. This may sound daunting, but the size of the galaxy is big, and you are not going to be the only rebel cell.

Most of the gameplay will be managing these smaller actions to have a BIG effect. The biggest problem is not even the Empire, but rather humans in general: they are everywhere. So many people were killed in the initial invasion, that humans have been shipped to every corner of the galaxy to be supplementary population. From 30% to 70% is teh range of humans in most kingdoms. There are expections, but they are rare (maybe you kind sir?). They will not be happy if you turn against their beloved empire, so you gotta deal with them first, one way or another. Or turn them to your side, who knows. The more support you get from your own species and the humans the more troops and ships you can get.

Overtime I will plan to do many events to spice things up, and get the events rolling, but lets not get carried away shall we? For now the most important thig is to create your nation, some important characters you'll use to make diplomatic or militaristic decisions and develop your nation. To make a strategy on how you will get friends, expand your space, and destroy the empire.
.
.
.
Done?

Let's see how it looks like ;D

le CS


Name:

Flag:

Type of Governement(So the Empire knows what tehy are dealing with):

Description of Governement:

Main race(Your own species, unless you want to play as humans):

Minority races(humans and what other. Needs to be at least 50% humans if you majority is them):

Demography(Min 20% humans):

Religion(Optional but appreciated):

Culture(A paragraph or two):

History(what you did under the rule of the empire fo roughly 300 years):

Important characters(very important, your leader[s], your strategist, your spy master and any other important character IN DETAIL):

Description of Military(ships and ground troops):

Technology(note that there are no energy shields, and that doomsday weapons are not a thing.):

Additional(whatever you feel like you want to add):

Anyways, hope that you'll consider joining us, and if you have any questions or want something clarified then feel free to ask me!

@rush99999 Yes, cloaking is allowed as long as you can explain how it works. If you say that "this is ship is cloaked" and then it cannot be seen or detected then I will not allow it, but if you tell me that it has some kinda radar blind paint or material then I will allow it. However if that technology gets captured, then they can detect it later, so be careful.

Edit: If you are asking about optical camo then its a different story. I allow it nevertheless, but its gonna be hell of a budget cut to cloak anything big. Plus it cannot stay cloaked forever, so think COD:AW cloak system.

@datadogie I said small group in tags, but I would like as many as possibble. The more people who rebel the better, but we'll see, won't we.

@aonly9470Hey, glad to hear that :D

@rush99999 You mean nations who don't have a homeplanet?

Thats a tough one, I hoped no one would ask that when I was making the RP. Nomadic nation would eliminate the whole "every second person you see is a Human" because you live on ships, plus that means that you have a large fleet already.

Look I am open to ideas, because I love new things, so if you give me a good reason/plan on why this is balanced then I will give it greenlight.

Ps: if you mean literally just a very small fleet, like 5-6 ships with no planet then thats fine, kinda like a rebel cell who helps wherever.

Fleet size won't be a problem. The race I plan on using will have been hunted to near extinction during the empire's conquest due to their one-man-army grade combat prowess and stubborn refusal to submit to imperial rule. There won't be enough of them for a large fleet to be needed.

have you ever thought of a resistance group fighting economically rather than millitarily? a group that tries to create an economic monopoly in a certain sector where the influence they gain is far more discreet

Hello, I am interested in joining.

A question of a concept, would it be plausible that the Empire of Humanity allows xeno kingdoms to have an "export-model" modular cruiser design. Seemly sturdily built, modular and scalable from light cruiser to line cruiser to heavy cruiser to even being overloaded with weapons to make a pocket battlecruiser with a relative minimum of complexity. But it's riddled with ingrained design sabotage to make the heavier versions prohibitively maintenance-intensive, and its not as good as purpose-made designs. Nonetheless, it's in production by several conquered kingdoms and minor human provinces for want of other options and to avoid the expense of building navies from scratch.

My industry-type rebel faction would have a mobile shipyard capable of limited production of these ships, or retrofitting ones that can be acquired or stolen. Their initial focus is to fix the ingrained sabotage and acquire more industrial assets to build and refit them en masse to take advantage of how many are in circulation in second-line roles. A heady plan to turn the products of the Human Empire upon itself, but execution remains ambiguous.

The ship in question:


Plausible concept or needs reworking? I'm still on the drawing board, so I'm open to edits.

@aonly9470 No, but thats why you guys are here. I am sure that'd be a headache for the Empire. I would like to see that. In fact, you could become a licensed trader race/faction within the empire because of your skills. This will however require you to have at least 50% human population. If not, I can still see you being a competent trader on the rise, but you will have to manouver more carefully to avoid suspicion.

@SkylarActually, there are two more factions aside from the Empire that I am still working on. One of them is the Mekhar Independance, the only remaining free nation, near the galactic core who have way overwhelming technology compared to the Empire, and as such they can hold out, and the Kegran Trade Confederacy, Who own some land in the place known as Unknown sector, an unstable part of the galaxy.

I can easely imagine modular ships being a product of either nations, but I doubt the Empire would use such ships. But here is what I think. Your race could have built these ships BEFORE the war, then got captured and now the Empire stores them or uses a small amount of them. You could reclaim those and build new ones. However, the empire uses very sturdy designs, think about SW.

Seeing that this got interest very quickly (You guys cannot beleive how f***** huge of a boulder rolled of my shoulder) I will be making the OOC for this RP fairly soon-ish. Expect it to be up before 8 pm GMT+1, which is about 7 hours in front of you my across-the-sea brothers.

@rush99999 I like your idea. I figured that'd be what you're going for, and I highly approve. Gives your guys an even bigger value for life as the last of your species. Makes my job of crushing you so much more fun :D
