Wow, you fucking idiots were no help whatsoever.
In recent times, the Solidarity of Humanity, as they're known specifically by the galactic community, has had a mysterious visitor to their planets. According to gathered Intel, the ship in question is made of Luminium, wood, and metal. Almost entirely Luminium. This ship and it's crew have, apparently, been assisting on the agricultural front, plowing fields and sowing palatable local flora. Reports indicate the ship itself is used for the labor, with one captured video showing the ship separating into individually operated segments. This ship has managed to slip past patrols so far, seeming to have no interest in getting tied up with law enforcement. This visiting ship does also seem to leave Luminium deposits behind. They're small, but they seem to be where the ship has been.


The Solidarity

Founder: Admiral Sadayo Takebiyashi, shortly after the Black Year
Current Ruler: Governor Samuel Lence
Homeworld: Hyperion
National Ideology: Weak men create hard times; hard times create strong men; strong men create good times.
Populations within Nation, approximate percentage of population: 70% human, 15% Teladi, 10% Lorian, 5% other races
Socioeconomic Structure: Military junta with elements of a command economy
History: The Scourge nearly drove humanity to extinction, but on the outer fringe of space occupied by the Terran Solidarity, there were a handful of Solidarity colony worlds that were spared the onslaught of the Scourge. The largest and most strategically-valuable of these outer worlds was Hyperion: a fortress world hosting a modest colony and a garrison of Solidarity soldiers and starships. In the aftermath of the Black Year, Admiral Takebiyashi - the commanding officer on Hyperion at the time - concluded that he was the highest-ranking officer remaining in the Solidarity Navy and declared himself the acting commander of the Terran Solidarity. With what few forces he had under his command, he secured control of a dozen or so systems containing human settlements.

Admiral Takebiyashi's government centered on Hyperion proclaimed itself a continuation of the old Terran Solidarity from the start, and even went so far as to retain the name "Solidarity". But the modern Solidarity has not even a fraction of the wealth or might of the old Terran Solidarity. It possesses a small fleet of mismatched starships, many of which are pre-Black Year warships with extensive renovations to keep them functioning long after their intended service life. The planets under the Solidarity's control are mostly sparsely-populated colonies on half-terraformed planets with little industry to speak of, and those systems are sandwiched between the Cosmic Empire, Teladi territory, and Scourge-infested space. To say that the Solidarity is in a precarious position is an understatement. The Solidarity exists in a state of perpetual martial law, and civil liberties have been curtailed at the expense of security of the state. Military officers have been in control since the time of Admiral Takebiyashi, each appointed by his predecessor free of any election or oversight. According to the junta in command of the Solidarity, this martial law has been a necessary evil imposed to ensure the continued survival of the human race in a hostile wartime situation. But the Solidarity has seen relative peace over the past 20 years, save for pirate attacks and Scourge outbreaks, and the populace is beginning to bristle from centuries of martial law. Even now, rumors of rebellion against the junta are increasingly heard in the cantinas of Solidarity colonies.
Lemme get you a link.

So, how does a stealth ship hide nuclear warheads? Those things tend to be radioactive, y'know. Don't they?


Pasting from my blabbering on the discord in case you miss it:

A warhead does give off a small amount of ambient radiation, but nowhere near enough to compromise its stealthy-ness. It’s pretty easy to conceal with a relatively dense material, such as the steel/space age alloy a starship is made of. I mean, think about modern nuclear missile subs, which have dozens of 1ish megaton warheads on board. If a warhead gave off enough ambient radiation to be detected, missile subs would give off enough radioactive energy to be detected and they wouldn’t be effective as stealthy nuclear delivery platforms
Let's talk about animal control because I am too scared to go into my kitchen right now. I went into the kitchen to get an apple out of the refriderator and I saw a mf mouse run out from under the fridge and I fucking pissed my pants and ran out. Roommate thought it was hysterical?! WTF, it's spreading disease in our kitchen and you're fucking LAUGHING? UGH!

So, my roommate and I are going to the hardware store to buy some mousetraps or whatever to get rid of them but I have no idea what to get and she doesn't either. So I'm asking you Roleplayer Guild. What kind of mousetraps should I get? I honestly don't think I can do this. I personally think I'm gonna lose my shit if I see a dead mouse in a trap because the thought of killing even a mouse makes me want to bawl my fuckin eyes out but if I leave in in my kitchen I'm afraid it's gonna kill me from some weird disease. I think bubonic plague came from a mouse and maybe covid too?? idk anymore...

Help a girl out!

Name and Title of Vassal State: The Duchy of Lyndenstrath, the Lyndenstrath (colloquial, dwarven), the Jaw (colloquial, men)

Ruler: Duke Brannar Brittletooth

Race:
-Dwarves: Your garden-variety fantasy dwarves. Comprise ~70% of the population, particularly inland in the mountains.

-Men. Comprise ~25%, concentrated in the more cosmopolitan ports of Troutglen and Gullstone. Small settlements and homesteads of men are scattered through the realm.

-Gaulletic: Less than 5%, more than 1%. Nearly all are merchants, skilled tradesmen, or imperial officials in the ports. Being accustomed to the more temperate latitudes, the climate is extremely disagreeable. And, of course, the local dwarves despise the few elves that do live in the Lyndenstrath.

-Morsen: A race of sentient walrusmen that hail from the northernmost reaches of the world. On stubby fin-like legs they can walk about on land, though quite slowly. Though cumbersome on land, they are agile swimmers and able to traverse long distances across frigid seas without boat or sail. Civilization is an alien thing to them, and most prefer to live nomadic lives in close-knit communities numbering 10-30 individuals. They spend their lives diving far below the waves in search of clams and abalone, migrating along the northern coasts in search of more fruitful shoals. At the southernmost ends of their range, they come into contact with the dwarves of the Lyndenstrath. There they have learned to trade pearls, nacre, and ambergris in exchange for foodstuffs, nets, iron tools, grog, and ale. Beyond trade, most Morsen have little interest in the goings-on of their Dwarf neighbors or the wider Mycorian Empire. A handful of Morsen, however, do seek adventure and find employment with the Lyndenstrath dwarves. A small, transient population of Morsen settle the unoccupied beaches of the Lyndenstrath, most arriving in autumn and departing for more northerly waters as the seas warm.

Location: Along the jagged northwestern coast of the mainland. Southern border marked by the ridgeline of the mountains. Eastern border marked about halfway along the strait. (Will draw this out later).

History: The Lyndenstrath is a cold and mountainous land of dark evergreen forests. Cold, fast streams course through turbulent runs down from the mountains into fjords. Winters are long and growing seasons short. It is a region ill suited to the civilizations of man, but ideal for their dwarven kin.

In ages past, in the time before written word, dwarves made their home in the northern coast. Their stonecutters carved homes into the sheer rock faces of the mountains and fjords: the first of the great halls of the Lyndenstrath. A collection of petty dwarven kings ruled the region, fighting against one another, or infrequently against nearby kingdoms of Men. Over time, the dwarves of Mithirhall came to dominate their neighbors and united the region into a single Kingdom known as the Lyndenstrath, named for the ancient linden trees that grew there.

During the Gaulletic Conquests, the dwarves of Lyndenstrath offered stiff resistance against the elves. Sealed away in their underground halls, the dwarves hunkered down for sieges that lasted many years. With vast food stores and the ability to supplement those with small quantities of subterranean-grown mushrooms, the besieged dwarves could hold out nigh-indefinitely. Dwarven raiding parties would sortie out under cover of night, harassing Gaulletic supply lines and patrols in small skirmishes before retreating into the dense forest. The dwarves were prepared to fight bitterly against the elves for decades, waging a war of attrition that even the mighty Gaulletic Empire could not sustain.

The elven invaders of the Lyndenstrath faced a tremendous challenge in pacifying the dwarves. But they were able to recognize perhaps the greatest weakness of the dwarves and capitalize upon it.

Greed.

The weakest link of the Lyndenstrath dwarves was to be found in Belgath Brittletooth of the Kelnhall. The elven attackers were astounded when the dwarven lord emerged from the gates of his subterranean fortress and offered to surrender. A deal was struck between Brittletooth and the Gaulletic Empire that has since been recorded in many dwarven sagas as a tremendous betrayal. The dwarves of the Kelnhall would support the elves in their conquest of the Lyndenstrath, leading the elves to hidden doorways and passages into many of the other dwarven holds. In exchange, Belgath and his heirs would rule the Lyndenstrath as a vassal lord to the Gaulletic Empire.

After the alliance between the Empire and Clan Brittletooth was struck, the elven conquest of the Lyndenstrath proceded swiftly thereafter. The Jaw fell into the imperial fold, and the Brittletooth dwarves governed it with little interference from Garnalaña. Those that fell in line with the Brittletooth Duke were rewarded for their compliance; their ancient holds converted into imperial baronies. Those who had fought the turncoat Brittletooth and the elves had their property and holds confiscated and banished from the realm. Such was the fate of Clan Grizzlebeard, the former kings of the Lyndenstrath.

The Grizzlebeards persist, however. Even now, as turbulence embroils the wider Gaulletic Empire, word has it that one Marko Grizzlebeard has returned, agitating the lower orders and fomenting revolt against Clan Brittletooth and the Empire. Duke Brannar has responded by issuing a bounty against any Grizzlebeard found in the Lyndenstrath: 20 coins of gold to whomever brings their head to the Mithirhall.

So far, however, the bounty has not been enough. Having led a mercenary company on the fringes of the Empire, Marko is reported to be a seasoned warrior. Brannar has therefore dispatched a troop of his own dwarves to Kazan's Cove - Marko's supposed whereabouts - to bring the rabblerouser to justice.
What if the miasma arrived on the scene after humans had developed civilization and industry? Maybe it was the effluent of some strange industry that got out of control, or was some natural toxin that was suddenly released into the air by mining or drilling? It was discovered that miasma would only rise to a certain altitude and so everyone suddenly had to relocate up to the mountains at a technology level of ~1850 or whatever. In my mind, this is a post-apocalyptic civilization, where the technology and knowledge to amend soil on shitty mountain dirt and build zeppelins already existed.
hi is this still alive lol i want to be giant lizard cats
