Umbrous Sector Continuation Wars (FT, OOC, Interest)

Postby Doppio Giudici » Tue Sep 15, 2020 11:33 pm

The Setting


The Umbrous Sector has "forever" been a lawless haven for criminals, traitors, warlords and private armies. Four months ago, a number of various imperialist, democratic, and humanitarian factions/Star Nations moved into the area to attempt to either conquer it, liberate it, deal with the pirate problem, and/or restore order. The Umbrous Sector and the Combined Warlord Fleets have seen some reduction in capabilities, but they are still capable of oppressing the region and pillaging neighboring "sectors" or areas. Despite that Star Nations have fallen to chaos, or pulled out of the area due to their own problems or the dangers, those still involved have finished "licking their wounds" and are ready to "finish what we started". This area, close to the center of Beta Quadrant of the Milky Way Galaxy, still remains bordering several wormholes that lead to other quadrants or even galaxies, and for those who call Beta home, the Umbrous Sector is a stragic crossroads between many important trading hubs and friendly or hostile regimes.


Beta Quadrent In General


This area of "Beta" more or less "lives in a cave" when it comes to awareness of what is going on in the rest of the Milky Way Galaxy. The neighbors of the Umbrous Sector are aware that most of Beta Quadrent used to be a place of "New Money", growth, expansion, and young civilizations; and then suddenly was a place of civil-war, poverty, and decay. Most of the galaxy believes that the pirate and refugee problem has mostly been resolved, but they appear unaware of all the struggles and glory deep within the heart of Beta, the part that is far away way from the edges, the core, and the boundaries of Beta Quadrant


Previous RP?


This is a continuation of what happened in this RP. We were encouraged to write for the NPC factions if someone was late or unable to do so, and since they are no longer among us, I and others will continue to substitute for them.

Tips, Advice, Resources for Newish RPers?


This is the Tech Level Comparision Chart, from the Traveller RPG. It's advised that anyone being involved in this or other RPs, be around 9-12 in military technology. It is perfectly accepable to be using modern firearms or body armor, as they are present in many sci-fi settings, and a lot of RPers on here use them. You can also just refer to this as SWN TL 3-4, since SWN uses a simpler tech level system.

40K, Halo, and StarWars are all roughly the same TL range, and they have analogs of each other's weapons/armor/units. Battlestar Galatica, Firefly, and some other Space Opera or Space Western settings have greater space travel capabilities, but use modern military technology mostly. Fallout is a strange setting as it's more advanced in regard to military/medical technology, but unable to travel the stars or even the solar system.

40K, SWN, and Traveller are mostly settings in decay or rebirth, and Halo is a setting that for awhile was rising and decaying at the same time... This is why these four settings are very comparable for the most part.

According to the lore agreed upon for 40K, which has games, books, RPGs, and video games written by people who don't talk to each other, almost all of the time a "Autogun" is comparable to a Lasgun, only it holds less rounds and can't be set to fire with greater or lesser intensity. In the SWN setting, Assault Rifles and Laser Rifles are comparable in abilities, and are different for the same reasons.

Looking at the "Assault Rifle" from the Halo series, it appears to most of the time fire a 7.62x51mm NATO round from a 32 round magazine. When the Autogun from 40K has a description, it describes a 8.25mm bullet travelling at roughly the speed of an "8mm Mauser" round (Which is actually 8.22mm). Considering these are both modern day "Battle Rifle" calibers, I consider the two firearms to be comparable.

As far as I know, the armor and weapons of a 40K Imperial PDF trooper, Halo UNSC marine, Star Wars Stormtrooper, and SWN TL 3 or 4 mercenary are all comparable to a Traveller soldier with a TL 10 Combat Environment Suit and a TL 9 Battle Rifle. In the movies and in some writings Stormtrooper armor is worse, dropping down to SWN TL 3 body armor or even modern day riot armor.

I refer to these types of infantry or units using equipment like the above as "Class D" or "Class C".

-

Halo UNSC ODST and 40K Imperium "Stormtroopers" appear to have as much protection as a SWN TL 4 elite mercenary in a TL 4 "Insurgent Combat Shell". I don't know what the equivalent for Star Wars or Traveller would be.

I consider these types of armor/infantry to be "Class B".

-

Finally, UNSC Spartans and 40K Imperium Space Marines appear to have as much protection as a SWN TL 4-5 super soldier in TL Power Armor or "Storm Armor".

In my eyes, such armor/infanty is "Class A".

Well, I'm here.

Should make an app.
Yugoslavia's back baby...

How the hell did this happen?
Well...we don't actually know. Sure, there's factbooks and stuff, but they don't really matter because the owner of this account is a lazy, unproductive, indecisive loser who may or may not have a thing for half human hybrids, big mechs and even bigger ships.
Is it a reunited Yugoslavia in the 21st century? Is a rebel colony world in the far future? Who knows, who cares?
New Yugoslavia just is.

Okay, so the application is up and the first IC will be up in a few days or less. I would like to first sort through where planets are first. How about we just pick the planets that stuff happened on, and just put them along one or more edges.

I will also be laying down some foundations for new FT people, so they have a baseline with what they are doing. I plan on squeezing Traveller, SWN, StarWars, 40K, and a few others into an agreed upon understanding of capabilities, technological levels, ect ect. A lot of NPC factions will use stuff from these settings, and a lot of new or old players like to use stuff from these settings as well.

I'd like people to know if their guns can get past someone elses armor, along with making sure we're all around the same Tech Levels.

Offical Star Nation/Organization Name: Victoran Empire (absent from setting). Represented in the setting by the forces of the extra-dimensional Quintan Expedition
Leader: Triumvirate of Terra; made up of a Lord Emperor, Prime Minister, and Lord Chancellor (absent from setting). Represented in the setting by Lady Explorator Adelaine Quintan (leader of the Quintan Expedition)
Nature of your state (Pick from Here): "Mixed" (elements of Republicanism and Oligarchy)
Predominant religion/philosophy: Celestism, worship six deities (Time, Pain, Death, Life, Fate, and Hope), practitioners worship these deities in exchange for favors.
Telegram me things you want me to put in the "Codex Imperialis"
The Victoran Empire is a FFT Interstellar Empire with a Roman and Gothic aesthetic that is engaged in a Great Crusade against 'the Enemy'. The setting is a horrid combination of 40k and Doctor Who. No, the Empire isn't oppressively imperialist. No, the Empire isn't British nor is it's name referencing Queen Victoria.

NS Stats are for nerds. I don't use them and neither should you (if you must, use stats as an indicator of the "average Civilized World"). With that said, according to this index, the Victoran Empire is a Tier 10, Level 8, Type 9 civilization with a Power Comparator of 3.9

Current Year: 2022 AD
