It should measure the magnitude and destructive capacity of an empire, starting with spears and clubs on the low end and Reality Shattering Megastructures on the high end (Sorry if that is a little vague, I could draft a list of tiers if you'd like)

Special Notes about your civilization:
Technology Tier is at 5 since they do live in the modern era. However, there isn't much machinery as people insist that they live in a simple manner that's true to nature.
Arcane level is subject to change to 11 because the Empire hasn't *evolved* long enough to achieve god-tier statuses. Like evolution, they need more time to reach 11. (But later on in the lore and predicted in their religious book, they will have to create an entirely new universe for themselves. ^^)

"May even have" is not a requirement. You can be a Planetary power without going into space, it just states that you may have gone to space.

That's too subjective. How would you measure military strength?

By the nation’s strength, like their forces of destruction and their power and their advancements itself, but the military.

I also looked earlier, and saw a nation had the idea of a weapon scale. Something like that.

Nation: The Navitas Collective
Tier 9 - Wise Wanderer (FT)
Tier 9 societies have begun to unravel the very fabric of physics. Reactionless drives, utilization of zero-point energy, energy shields, and/or FTL weapons systems may be utilized. FTL communications not involving the use of ships likely exists. Cybernetic or Genetic enhancements have likely rendered baseline members of the civilization's species obsolete. Construction of Megastructures such as Dyson Spheres is possible, but likely extremely difficult or impractical. It may be possible to destroy whole planets with some weapons.

Tier 10 - Eternal Elder (FFT)
Travel between universes is likely possible with a Tier 10 civilization. At any rate, the construction of megastructures is probably child's play. Even stars can likely be created by a Tier 10. Immortality was likely long ago achieved, and weapons have become so advanced that destruction of entire star systems is possible. Not even Tier 8 civilizations stand any hope of defeating a Tier 10 civilization in battle.

The Navitas does not utilize technology to accomplish these feats- as it is the physical representation of the galactic consciousness, with the Eldenians as its immune system, it grants the majority of these abilities as a part of its biology. Reactionless drives are taken for granted as utilizing the base force particles of reality's fabric, while zero-point energy is simply the Navitas maintaining its immune system through energy transfers. Energy shielding exists in a fashion, though it does not protect against energy weaponry, acting only on objects with mass. FTL weapons, while they do exist, are so inaccurate due to the nature of Navitas FTL that they are set aside in favour of lightspeed weaponry. FTL communication is possible, though as with all Navitas FTL innovation it is unwieldy and difficult on anything small-scale. Cybernetics are unheard of, though standard Eldenian biology is equitable to a civilization with advanced cybernetics. On a macro scale is where the Navitas transitions into the realm of a Tier 10 civilization- While travel between universes is not what the Navitas considers itself, the FTL utilized are Eldenian ships disappearing into the different realm of the Navitas itself, technically another level of reality. The construction of Megastructures is indeed child's play, with the galactic equivalent of lymph nodes for Eldenians able to be created as needed. Immortality is a given for the Navitas, while Eldenians remain simply disposable organisms in the galactic immune system, though they have admittedly long lives. Weapons do exist that can destroy solar systems, though they are only produced by the Navitas in times of crisis- as its consciousness depends on the galaxy being intact, solar-busting weapons are not something to keep laying around.
Level 0 - Inept
Individuals of this rank have no magical abilities to speak of.

Not much to say here... The Navitas is a being of physics, not magic. Though it is aware that magic is present in beings of the galaxy, it itself is not magically adept. Eldenians up to this point have not been created able to utilize magic, either.
Type 9 - Galactic Guardian
The home galaxy of this civilization is heavily influenced by the actions of it. Interstellar empires regularly rise and fall at a Type 9's whims, and most advanced life in the home galaxy has at least heard rumors of the Type 9. A few civilizations in other galaxies may be aware of the Type 9.

The Navitas are the embodiments of galactic consciousness- while they are not active outside their own galaxies, within them they hold significant sway. While some Navitas dictate all that happens within them, the Navitas that I write of takes a relatively non-interfering stance, creating Eldenians to protect itself but generally leaving the civilizations of the galaxy to their own devices (unless they start destroying planets- then they are cleansed, or the Navitas at least attempts to).


Special Notes about your civilization: A very brief description, in case none of this made sense- The Navitas is an embodiment of the galactic consciousness, a gestalt on a galactic scale, with the Eldenians as its immune system. The majority of its physical presence is devoted to fighting "disease", whether that be a rogue civilization destroying solar systems or the Eldritch beings from beyond our dimension that infest and devour systems containing life. This is accomplished through the Eldenians, which the Navitas gives sentience and a wide array of support via Portal Worlds, massive combat vessels, weapons and armour, and even life itself.
Any Improvement Suggestions for the Index? Perhaps add a size descriptor? Like, a civilization wielding only a few ultra-powerful ships could have the same galactic impact as a massive interstellar federation, and the Type indicator gives no information on simple scale.

Yes our leader has a long title. No, that is not a self-appointed title, nor by choice. It is of political significance; excluding even one part of the title could lead to revolts.

Nation: The Commonwealth of Amrasia
Tier: 7, as the nation itself was founded in the near-future (around 2030-2040). Interplanetary travel is possible, but it takes weeks (closer distance such as between the Earth and Mars are reachable within 1-2 days, though). Also, the first interstellar probe have gone to the nearest solar system, it's been three and a half months since the launch.
Level: 2, some newborn citizens are detected to have psychic abilities, but not too much. Their abilities are limited to clairvoyance, etc.
Type: 6, Amrasia is well known in the planet as a high-tech and strong nation. Also, the national space agency have built planetary bases. One in the moon, two in the mars, and one in the Titan (moon of saturn).
Special Notes about your civilization: None.


This below is based on the region's RP.

Nation: The Commonwealth of Amrasia
Tier: 9, Amrasia have begun to unravel the very fabric of physics. Reactionless drives, utilization of zero-point energy, energy shields, and/or FTL weapons systems are being utilized. Cybernetic/genetic enhancements are common, making the people to look and to be what they want. A dyson sphere is being built. Amrasian military has already owned a planet destroyer in form of a giant cannon in a starship, although there's only one unit running (because lack of funds) but it's been useful to pierce a planet and retrieve some minerals from it.
Level: 2, most of Amrasians are able to communicate by telephaty. Clairvoyance and such things exist, but limited.
Type: 9, our beloved planet destroyer have been heard by other civilizations, and some of them tried to wage a war against us but most of them took a peaceful diplomatic ties with us.
Special Notes about your civilization: Although Amrasia has a small piece of land on earth, Amrasia's actual homeworld is on the Alpha Centauri B.

This was intentional. In my opinion, size doesn't matter ( ;) ), but influence and international impact do. Personally, in my approach to RP I don't care if a nation has thirteen quadrillion people and hundreds of thousands of massive battlecruisers, or twenty-seven guys in an interstellar gunship. But I do care if they make a hundred other nations bow before them.

In my RP, Excidians only number a little more than a billion people. That's less than Earth's polulation, but the scale of influence is much greater for Excidium Planetis. That's what I wanted to capture.

Caligolus wrote: Any Improvement Suggestions for the Index? There's a lot more aspects to most civilizations than this index can really account for. I can't think of specifics right now, but as a result of this, I have some rather mixed feelings for this index. It is both amazing and rather dumbed down, at the same time.


Of course, I cannot account for all possible civilizations. I tried to incorporate ideas as best I could while maintaining the simplicity and ease of use expected for such a scale.

Will post for both factions:

Nation: The An'Kazar Control Framework
Tier: 12
Level: 8 (11)
Type: 8 (11)
Special Notes about your civilization: The Godulans within the Control Framework prefer to keep a low profile, but established interdimensional travel very early on in their history. Thus, their territory is relatively small, but spans a vast number of alternate universes (this is why the parenthetical value for 'type'. Small but DEEP footprint). They routinely dick with the primordial muck from whence universes come and eventually return, and have learned a wide variety of interesting capabilities in so doing. Entropy is nothing to them.

They also possess a significant degree of psionic capability which fuels a sort of telepathic communications network that they can use to substantial strategic effect, as well as certain secondary capabilities.
Any Improvement Suggestions for the Index?Nah

(Power comparator: 3.1 to outside observers, but 1.08 when applying the parenthetical values)






Nation: The Servants of the True Way of the Will
Tier: 8 (11)
Level: 12
Type: 9 (11)
Special Notes about your civilization: This group is an intergalactic anti-technology crusade that uses the sheer weight of conviction to produce effects that many might see as magical. Their tier is listed as 8 normally, but the parenthetical number results from their grasp of the actual sciences. To them, it doesn't count as technology if it performs its function just by existing. The majority of their power focuses on reality manipulation and raw force of will. Though they are otherwise unremarkable in their humanity, they are capable of astounding feats of strength, speed, endurance, and cunning.

The Tutelaries, the closest thing they have to 'Gods' are in the inexorable process of establishing a pocket dimension within this one. Blessed Shira, their paradise.
Any Improvement Suggestions for the Index? Nah.

(Power Comparator: huh... ALSO 3.1, and also 1.09 when accounting for the parenthetical values)

I don't normally use NS stats. But when I do, I prefer Dos Eckis I can STILL kill you.
