@Havoccultist Other than black hole generators, those other power sources are acceptable. As for Plague bombs, that'll be fine, the current Orion Sphere is rift with war crimes :P


Sounds good. I'll get to working on a sheet for ORN, otherwise known as the Orion Reclamation Network.

Alright. I've got a WIP up. Wanted to post it here before continuing to see if there's anything that needs to be changed. Especially since I started writing on autopilot after a point.

Okay, here's the full sheet. And yes I did pull almost all of the info from the Orion's Arm wiki, mostly due to the fact that their autowars are basically what I imagine when thinking of self-replicating swarms designed for armed conflict.

The Great Socialist Congress of Nations






Government


Constitutional Triarchycal Socialist Republic


The GSCoN operates under a revolutionary system of republics and nations united under a great congress, a parliament of elected party members of the three allowed parties of the republic seated in the planet of Narkeren. The Parliament heads legislative, ideological and half of the administration. While on the other side the triarchy of three rulers control the executive power as the three paramount leaders of the republic. One elected amongst the parties, the other via popular vote and one via a military vote of officers. The system was born out of despair of the early days of the revolution that abolished the kingdom of Narkeren and following the so called wars of the coalitions. The republic operates under what can be called presidentialism-parliamentarism if the Triarchy was a single person instead of one. With the power to steer the republic being pulled from the triarchy to the congress of peoples. The congress is led by the three major parties. At the left of center socialism there is the Vanguardist party believing in the far more militaristic approach to foreign policy but also in socialist practice. At the center lies the Social Marxist party. Led by centrists and a large umbrella coalition of members. At the right of socialism lies the United for Progress, a political entity that follows a reformist view of the system rather then the revolutionary view of the other two parties.

Demographics


Humans: 87%

Zeridians: 7%

Considered former majority of the territory during the federation days. The Zeridians are a tall red skinned humanoid race with heavy body builds. Their kind was once largely the majority in the region until migrations of humans to the area displaced most of them while still a massive majority; the collapse of the federation and the rise of the successor states that purged most of their kin resulted in their race being put into near extinction.

Others: 6%





History


The republic is 18 years of age, same for its current institutions. For a simple reason long before the republic was born the region it inhabited was ruled over by six successor states. Reactionary and Facistic in nature authoritarian to the extreme, many supported each other to maintain an order in the region. These countries had little to worry about the collapse, only locals and human populations that managed to band together during the economic and initial breakdown, no barbarians came to their doorstep instead they only had to worry about themselves. Three of these nations were kingdoms and three were republics, together these factions kept themselves in power in an increasingly unhappy and angry population. Until it broke 20 years ago in the kingdom of Narkeren its people had enough and with it a revolution exploded resulting in what was called the revolution. The revolt was a success with armies even joining the uprising at the streets led by a series of leaders of resistance nodes upon its success the royal family was executed while half of it managed to flee. Resulting in the birth of the People's Republic of Narkeren. A nation who struggled with a new revolutionary government but also a new danger being surrounded by enemies by every side. The new socialist republic found itself a target of an anti revolutionary coalition led by six nations with the aim of destroying the revolutionary congress beginning what would be called the revolutionary wars. At the panic of the war the congress began to act quite quickly in mobilization initially a series of judgments would be set into the military but thanks to the war slack the recruiting quality and new rules allowing more meritocratic selection. Resulted in the rise of what is called the big four.

Ilahenos, Zenia, Julius, and Sagreius, the four greats that are said to have saved the republic from disaster Ilahenos the administrator, Zenia the admiral, Julius the general and Sagreius the economist. From the time of war this four man and woman, managed to bring the things under control from the defenses, stability and economy back straight back into order and allowing for the offensives that took place. Albeit there is debate if it was this four man idolized by the republic or the will of the people that fought in the war and that pushed through the chaos. Same for the congress this is still an ongoing debate but for many the four set the foundations of the republic's success and its triumph towards the big four.

When the republic managed to hold itself together Zenia the admiral of the fleet led the fleets into a counter offensive against the republic Narzenen the fall of the republic took many by surprise as it was a great and ancient republic. Once it was ceased the nation’s forces managed to not only pacify but also keep order especially after the [redacted by the red guard] the fall sended many shockwaves as the socialist republic reorganized its forces Ilahenos and Sagreius managed to integrate the republic and with it massive reinforcements for what would be called the Revolutionary Wars. As the forces united against the socialist republic they faced a quite devastating defeat at the hands of Zenia with the fleets of the 4 nations nearly destroyed the revolutionary forces went into a rampage destroying the nations of the region. The wars brought the end of the six nations east of the Augustan and North of the Ilovacan nation. As the revolutionary wars began to end the last nations that once existed. Their integration was incredibly well done and Ilahenos one of the first Triarchs of the nation was the one who led the reforms allowing what happened next to exist. With the fall of the kingdom of Romulus. The Socialist republic of Narkeren was abolished and with it a new nation was born, The Socialist Congress of Nations came into existence that day a federation formed of six socialist republic members that replaced the former states of the kingdoms.

With the birth of the congress of nations and the end of the coalition many believed things would settle. But they weren't picked by the fact that a previously small state managed to overtake five other countries. While outgunned and outmatched thanks to grand tactics and military maneuvers from Zenia and Julius as the republic bordered the three states of Augustan, the Ilovac, the Concord and Republic of Orions. While the war and overextension of expansion would be logical and stop the growth of the new power that came to be. This did not affect the Congress of Nations as the last kingdom fell and its monarchy fled to the Augustan Empire the armies of the Socialist Congress immediately invaded the Augustan empire under orders of the Triarchs and the congress. The same event happened against the Ilovacic forces to the south and when meeting the concord of free nations to the north. The congress considered all as reactionary forces and stepping stones on its path of reuniting the federation and initiated invasions. For many it seemed like madness why invade neutral and more powerful nations but thanks to achieving the considered impossible, the congress and its leaders grew bold as they proclaimed themselves the federation reborn and with it. The revolutionary wars continued expanding this time from localized small powers into a massive war between four nations. A war where three of the most powerful factions in the outer systems were locked in war with a revolutionary state.

Zenia, and Julius immediately took on a more bigger issue they had to chew as the frontline of the war was massive stretching from the system of Safor in the sector’s south all the way to Shield's heart in the north near Vora. The war began to fervor as the advance was substantial securing many regions as Zenia managed to keep things under control but as the war began to continue things started to go back in favor of the final coalition quite slowly but substantially Ilahenos one of the first Triarchs was murdered. Many believed the suspect to be a political rival, others believed foreign affairs but after investigation it was found out that the main culprit was a counter revolutionary and nationalist to one of the no longer existent reactionary states. This revealed that while successful in integration this was further from reality as regional separation still existed, not as bad as before but still existed; this resulted in new campaigns to diminish national separatism. Until the war started to slowly die down as Julius died in the war against the Concord attempting a massive tidal push hoping to release steam from the massive frontline. But his death came instead not many knew of his demise and mourned him immediately only the news came after his partner died but for those who were present they knew the warwas coming to close. The war against the Augustan Empire was considered a continuation of the revolutionary wars, a pull and push against an absolutist monarchy, seeking liberation of its people against tyranny. The war was long and considered more bloody compared to the others the Ilovacic dealt with raids and the occasional system exchange. The concord dealt with an attrition war of sieges and few movement. The Augustan and Congress dealt with maneuver warfare and grand battles that took mass land and lost massive ammounts land, that led closer to each other's capitals at turns from Augusta Prime to close to Narkeren until the death of Zenia considered a war hero and winner of the congresses existance. Her death shocked the nation and forced many to start a panic as both her and then Julius death information was released sended the republic into shock. As the nation mourned the fronts became static and with it a peace deal was signed. Unable to defeat its enemies many would consider this the end of the boldness of the revolutionary government but that would be inaccurate. Surviving the war was a great miracle once the scope of the situation was made clear and with it the nation's leader even part of its people still hail that the nation is destined to reborn the federation. Resulting in a less friendly regime to other nations as the congress treats most other nations as rogue elements of its ascension. Said view of things though is rather new and dying down after the revolutionary wars ended the peace time has made many rethink the view of other states resulting in a less jingoist view of foreign policy.

But as time goes on the republic seems to once again be ready for other campaigns to reunite the federation. What once was six nations now is one and what once was a people fighting for their freedom became a new power in the region and what once was a nation fighting desperately for survival now is expanding seeking to unite what once was broken. But at the same time many wonder... how? How does one nation small and irrelevant managed to unite the region it lived and fight 3 powers and still stand? That is a question that runs within the congress of nations... how did all of this happen a debate exists and many speak of conspiracy shadow cabals and many more theories.

@venzkaizer Hello! Sorry to say that it is not possible. I would prefer all nations/species to be either from the Orion Sphere itself or are descendants of the invading barbarian horde.

Just curious if this is still accepting applications, and if so, if it'd be allowed to have a small nation pop up utilizing a completely different branch of technology- both the reason for their isolated independence, and a mark of pride of their sovereignty.

Idea being, they're relatively small but can punch up to be "equals" against significantly larger civilizations.

Small ships, elite powered infantry, but hellishly expensive one and all compared to significantly larger ships due to density collapsed armor, gravity propulsion and FTL (capable for short trips between near systems but nowhere near as effective for long trips that hyperlanes once filled), extensive cybernetics. Can't really "project" power due to small size and quantity, but the quality has skyrocketed.

It would, of course, be a major incentive for them to never ever share or allow their technology to be reverse engineered, and perhaps a strong incentive for other nations to investigate the new advancements.

@TexanJanus Yup! We're still accepting. As for the tech, the only one I'm a but iffy on is the FTL. The other stuff I'm fine with.

I think I'll have to withdraw for now, as my interest in this roleplay has largely waned, though if anyone wants to use ORN then by all means feel free. Otherwise the Triune could just go dark and its fleets could have gotten lost in interstellar space.
