To Oli, Alnajmia & IMR : A small woman inclined her head. "Ambassador Itenis." Internally, she felt confused. Latin. Bizarre. That has to be a fractal thing, because languages drift. No way someone has a history from Earth-1 and speaks Latin of all things. Then again, a Latin naming s...

OOC: I was writing a reply to Oli but realised one of my replies needs editing. Whoops! So I'll post this and fix the other one up. To C'tan : Space Lord Tessa D'vani wasn't one to mince words. "Hah! Those bastards hate us. Tried to conquer us a few times. Now, I'll admit we raid the hell out o...

OOC: I might break my replies up into multiple posts to make it easier for people to see who I'm responding to. Also I lost a big post I'd completed 3/4s of two weeks ago and it threw me into a bit of a non-posting spiral. I'm going to go one post at a time, too - otherwise this all becomes a bit to...

OOC: Altin swore, not for the first today. "This is a clusterfuck." They had schematics for FTL drives. Of course they did. They could even build them. They couldn't test them inside the Sector, however. That meant building drives onto ships in the Sector, bringing them to Gateway, and tes...

OOC: Sorry Mercatus, the 'biggest damn warship the universe had seen' pretty much qualifies as a doomfleet. The Sector's also not accessible via FTL - this means you can't see or interact with it without going in the wormhole the fleet is guarding. Mind coming back with something more reasonable?

The Lights in the Sky are Stars (FT, open)

OOC: Feel free to jump in and say hello to the varied powers of the Sector. Don't feel free to jump in with a doomfleet. Please note the Sector is strictly accessible through the wormholes described and FTL does not work within it - you can get around sublight just fine, however. -------------------...

The Flying Reindeer , Sessile thought, was the most frustrating freighter to shadow. The captain kept trying to match speeds with him, as though the freighter was the frigate and he was the vessel in need of escort. It was blindingly obvious, and made it impossible to look like they simply had simil...

Sessile looked at Krio. Good questions. It was what you tended to expect from the Huerdaen. While they had their quirks - Sessile threw his mind back to a disaster of a mission where a drunk atoran had called a Huerdaen a liar of all things, and then had accused him of lying about his response... th...

"Welcome." Sessile looked over the attack team he'd gathered. Motley, but they usually were. The sorts of people who put themselves directly in the line of fire for the sort of pay where either desperate, a little crazy, or both. Three others had walked in after the first three. "I'll...

"Another one." General Tulak's hand rested in his hair, tightly pulling some of the strands he had left. He was thirty-two now, an age most Talythians would never reach. He was of the highest caste, though, and sixty years could be his, though no more. He didn't know how the pirates were h...

A bit of (yes, yes, I know, it's unsolicited) advice with these sorts of things. Ten or so people on each side make it very likely this sort of thing is going to happen.

On another subject, since the cuttlefish aliens I asked about a while back don't use soundwaves to communicate, does it humanize them too much to just use the excuse that the humans who discovered them gave a lot of the stuff around them Aztec-sounding names? Given the bizzare fractal nature of the...

For alien life to contact New Tulsa was not particularly rare. Traders from outside the sector occasionally stopped by, carrying rare materials and data products. Mostly the Magnar Corporation preferred to bring all important purchases in with an in-house ship, for the same reason they preferred to ...
