Current Overwatch came out with a new event, with lots of awesome skins for those heroes. So, I bought enough lootboxes to get them all to save myself the pain of attempting to play that 'team' game.

The US Defense/War budget is about $579 billion dollars. Tthat's too much, right? The Social Security budget is $911 billion dollars. And the Medicare budget is over $1 trillion. Not so bad now, huh?

I'll be honest, I much prefer fatigues.

Neither my brother nor myself has served in the military, but he went to surplus stores to get various items of things he liked- marine and army fatigues, tactical vest, gas masks, etc.- and so for the past couple halloweens here at home, I've dressed up as a US Marine. Real fatigues, real combat gloves, real kneepads, etc. Really awesome- punch a concrete wall without feeling a thing (not even joking), or drop to the ground without your knees feeling nothing more but like they're landing on pillows (despite it being gravel). Also, a black gas mask and a kevlar helmet fit together amazingly (on purpose, more like), and is legitimately terrifying for anyone who's never seen the sort before. I may have some confidence in myself, and comfortable with how I am- but oh my god, walking around in boots, kneepads, fatigues, vest, gloves, helmet, gas mask- you just FEEL INVINCIBLE.

I had images, but only on my old phone, I think.

Welcome to the Guild.

Your IC post has two notable problems, after being glanced at:
1) the one requirement of sorts is that you write a nation sheet detailing and explaining your nation, and then posting that nation sheet in the Character Sheet tab. Which you entirely skipped, so we know nothing. Everyone else wrote a CS first.
2) your nation is in an entirely different galaxy. After reading your post, yes, you got 'blown' into the Milky Way, which honestly doesn't make a lick of sense. An explosion, even a supernova, couldn't hope to launch a ship all the way to the next star system, much less to an entirely different galaxy- a galaxy that isn't even a neighbor. The Andromeda Galaxy is our closest neighboring galaxy, and it'd take thousands of years for us to reach it. I mean, it doesn't matter too much in this roleplay, but... it doesn't make any sense.

I'm not a GM, or coGM, so I don't have any actual say beyond 'I'm disappointed/disapproving,' so feel free to ignore me if you want.
Juran Border Fleet

The Marine shuttles approached and docked with the unfamiliar ships, using adapative airlocks that fit around and then sealed against foreign locks, before a dozen soldiers from every shuttle marched onboard. Each one was wearing light armor, with shoulder-mounted pulse lasers, carrying forearm-covering scanners on one arm and the handle to an unactivated energy weapon in the other. They fanned out, scanning for anything amiss for ships of the sort- major warheads, such as nuclear, thermobaric, thermonuclear, hydrogen, or antimatter sorts- and interesting technology. They thoroughly combed each ship, working in groups of two, cross-referencing the scanning data from each Jura with the others of each group, their Shipmaster watching the map grow in realtime. Meanwhile, the rest of the Juran fleet watched, passively, waiting for a report from their soldiers before they did anything else.

In the distance, the speeding reinforcements met up with and joined the border fleet, bolstering their numbers from measly to lowly.

Modern day: See the EM Drive.

In the roleplay: The Jura use sublight drives on warships. Plus heavily optimized and evolved FTL drives for fast intergalactic travel. The Jura can use antimatter as a source of energy- fusion energy can't beat antimatter. And while not every ship is antimatter, many of them are supported with antimatter-related technologies. Antimatter has a habit of messing up the norm.
@o0V0o
That's my point tho. We have railguns now. As experimental prototypes. By the time the Jura went to space, cannons had been replaced by railguns because they were, in comparison to space-age interstellar-capable tech, simple and easy to produce and use. I figure this will be the case in space. Especially since cannons fire rounds that are so comparatively slow that spaceship would be able to dodge it really easily.
@Lucidnonsense
Copy-pasting.

I guess you could ask a mod if they could move it.
I have interest in type 1 and 4.
Just gonna throw this out there:

Humanity is NOT a spacefaring species. Tech hasnt developed enough. However, we do have working theories on producing antimatter, and working designs for railguns
Do note: unknown entities in orbit of any major Juran planet is a fire-first-ask-questions-later zone. Especially considering that the major planets have a large tract of newer, freshly colonized sector of space between them and neutral/unclaimed territory.
I hope he lies. I wanna see understrength Jurans vs outgunned Rurnians. I mean, if the Rurnians managed to prove themselves worthy of respect and independence by beating off the superior Jurans, then the Jurand would be more inclined to vargaining, rather tyan dominating. Why crush strong spirit, when you can harness it?
