I am the GM of said PW game that has been mention. Currently the back story to my game is thus: (do note that its a very modified PW setting. that I call the 4 Galaxies) Currently most Galactic Empires are at war with one Empire or another if not more than one in a few cases. Phase World has shut down the Space gates to most civlizations save for a very select few. Center is still a trading center but not most of the trade comes through the D-Gates and leaves through there. As a result Phase Weapons are at a limited availability. The CCW is at war with the TGE after it aggressively started trying to expand while containing the FWC. TGE has finally contained the FWC Though they haven't been able to finish it they have contained it very well, though runners still make the challenging run of delivering supplies running the gauntlet and risking life and limb to get past the blockades. The TGE is also at a cold war standing with the ATPDS because of them seeking alliance with the CCW. The ATPDS is currently at war with the Manhunters whom have changed their tactics from subtle diversionary terrorist acts, though they use them alot still, to full on conquering and enlsaving of any world that has Terrans and their allies. (This includes any world that has Humans or any race known to ally with humans. The UWW is currently mostly neutral staying out of the war with the TGE and the CCW. They have accepted a number of worlds that the KIA (Kirn Institute of Astromancy) hold sway over.

The Atorian Empire is rising in power and slowly talking over worlds in its vicinity, as is the Arkhon Empire. The Atorian Empire was entertaining an alliance with the Tarlok but because of their beliefs on women they are being shunned by the AE now.

The Central Alliance are as Mercs to the core. Taking jobs from the highest bidder no matter who they are. Though the Manhunters view them as an abomination and the Holy Order of the Void is constantly sending Missionaries to get them to join the Order.

Pirate and Wrecker raids are increasing in frequency. The war makes good business for them as well as for any and all Weapons Dealers, NE and Hartigal Combine included.

Attacks have been occuring on colonies and space stations by an unknown force that defies sensors. They arrive without warning from within sensor range attack, destroy and raid taking what they need destroying what they don't though they do not kill wantonly so their have been survivors. They disappear just as quickly leaving no traceable signature.

In regards the the Shadenthian Empire:
200000+ Galactic Years ago They Rose up and took control of many parts of the Galaxies. Through Conquest or Peaceful negotiations. They ruled over their Empire with a fair but firm hand. Then scientists in their home system discovered that their star was unstable. Though they could discover no cause they did discover that they had a limited time to evacuate the system. Recalling their entire Military they gathered as many of their race as they could onto their ships. A number of their ships had a new experimental Drive system. But their calculations were off. They didn't have as much time as they thought. Just as they were preparing to leave they system the sun went Supernova.

Something strange happened in that Supernova, whether it was because of the intense release of energy in the explosion combined with the planets magical reaction to its sudden destruction or the Shadenthian Gods looking out for their charges. Suddenly the Majority of the Exodus Fleet Vanished. Some of the ships were destroyed or very damaged in the explosion. But enough survived that they were able to collect themselves and assist the survivors. Once that was done they then took stock of their surroundings. And realized they were no longer in any part of space that they recognized. For one Visual scans showed a black starless void with crimson lines of power in the distance. Blood colored Lightning flashed along those lines of power. After weeks of searching they found they had no way out of this strange place. Using some of the damaged ships that were not fully space worthy but still usable they dismantled them and rebuilt them into a space station. Settling in they learned more of this strange place. Making discoveries regarding the nature of this place. Aeons Later they finally discovered a way out. Outfitting probes with this new technology they pierced the barrier between where they were and realspace. Once they started getting data from the Probes. They made even more discoveries. They found that time flows differently for those in Hyperspace then it does outside in realspace. Using these discoveries they leaped in advancements even further.

Testing these Advancements they sent forth the Heir the the Imperial Throne, Trained by their highest Order. He was given command of the flagship of the fleet. The Shadow Raven, assisted by a new cybernetic AI system that allowed him to be the sole person in command of the vessel. He was given a mission to gather information on the state of affairs of the Galaxies and recruit natives to crew the ship and learn as much as he could from them.


Moved to its own thread for discussion comments questions and what not.

As per request I will be posting stats of various Weapons, ships, and Armors as well as various other things that I create for my game. Though it won't be all at once bear with me I tend to wing it alot on my game.

List of things that have been seen in my game that are my own Creation:
The Shadow Raven, Flagship Cruiser of the Shadenthian Empire (Nearly destroyed and no longer space worthy)
Shadenthian Energy Weapons (Currently only pistol and Rifle)
Shadenthian Armor
Shadenthian Royal Fighter
The Shadenthian Race itself
Shadenthian Shadow Lord OCC
Hand to Hand Shadentian
Shadenthian Nano-Energy Blade.
Void Dragon

So far that's all that I have created so far that I can remember if I forget something I am sure my players will chime in with it. Which I want so that I can recall it and make sure its noted somewhere in my notes. :lol:

still though if it only had a mega attack and that was about the extent of it, I'd call it a push over even though it was clearly Bahamut Zero.

Comment: I see people as people first, anything else is secondary
either way .. lets stop with the implied comments of mega this and that char wise and focus on the real issue

the game.

*it's supposed to be fun. let's not ruin it by crying 'foul' before anything happens with new char's being brought in.
*i equate the char's death in question was more like someone armed with a knife and derringer trying to take out 8 guys with rocket launchers.
*nothing more .. nothing less ... just happened that the lead up to that game was poor all about
*but that happens when someone is trying to shove rules and regulations of one country down the throats of other people. gotta expect some repercussions about that. it's what causes war in real life. but "nuff said"

*but that was how i saw it in the game sense.
*char wise i really detested the implied 'yer better off shutting the **** up *****. no one wants to hear your comments' .. yeah .. ouch.
*player wise .. i used that implied comment and altered the char's commentary. made the char Flamberge that much more amusing as she adjusted.

The whole rule thing your spouting is kinda confusing you were offered help using intergalactic salvage rules to keep everyone in the fairness and the captain was more of the obey me or die guy. Noone ever told said character to shut up only to quit insulting people if she knows how much insults hurt her. player wise it was a nice way to quit saying stop picking on people because someone wanted to be awesome.

Enough with the crap that happened in the past of the game. The idea is to promote the fun of the game now that little things like that have been resolved/fixed/taped over. I don't need players poking at each other on here.

What happened happened. Leave it at that.

Don't think there oh wait there might be as I use images though that's only because they look similiar not exactly like it but to avoid issues. I will PM those that might cross that line. (Currently that would be the Shadenthian Royal Fighter and the Shadow Raven.)

Stats for things I have created in my game thus Far.

Shadenthian Nano-Energy Blade: Looks like a bladeless cutlass hilt with a set of needles that will impale the hand of the user. It is keyed to the DNA of the specific User. Once Activated a blade of pure dark energy comes to life. Though when the user attempts to parry the blade blinks out as it becomes a very close covering Force Field, Can be used to block Incoming energy blasts at no penalty. Damage: 5d6+PS (if user has SNPS add punch damage) +5 Parry and +3 Strike due to the balance and light weight of the Blade. And it lends itself to the intuitive use by the User. If anyone other than the Designated User attempts to use it, save vs. Lethal Poison is required. Upon failure they suffer a very painful death, if they succeed they suffer -10 to all combat rolls attacks per melee are reduced by one quarter, skills are -25% due to pain. And they suffer 5d6 damage direct to HP per melee round until they get medical treatment as the Nano-Virus eats them. The Blade costs 2PPE to activate, 1PPE per melee round to use, 2PPE per parry attempt.


Shadenthian Energy Pistol: Damage: 4d6+6MD, Range: 1000ft, Payload 40 shots.

Shadenthian Energy Rifle: Damage: Single Shot 5d6 Triple Shot Burst: 2d6x10+20 Range: 2500ft Payload: 60 Shots

Shadenthian Shadow Armor (no movement penalties)
Head – 100
Arms – 75/-
Legs – 90/-
Main Body – 250/-
Special Features: Seems to absorb light slightly (dims 25%) deflects Lasers (½ Damage)

Shadenthian Shadow Armor is made of a special metal that is found only in Hyperspace (Something I created though its reminiscent of B5's use of it). And constructed using processes known only to the Shadenthians. It detects as a very faint Magic item.

Currently the rest of the list will have to wait as I organize my list.

Shadenthian Royal Fighter: Cant be put in public as I based it off of a specific Babylon 5 Fighter

Shadenthian Nighthawk class Cruiser: The Shadow Raven: Same as Royal Fighter except I based it off of a certain Star Trek ship.

Currently the group has been hired on by a joint venture between UAC and Kiinai Exploration. After arriving at the UAC space station Mundos, where they met with their employer and head of the Exploration Fleet, a Monro by the name of Thell Trall, Negotiations were successfull in employing the Crew of the Die Valkyrie as an Escort ship for the 5 ships of the exploration Fleet. After getting loaded with supplies, the Die-Valkyrie gathered with the rest of the Exploration Fleet and the other 3 Escort ships.

Getting underway it was an uneventful two weeks, after which long range sensors of the exploration ships detected a planetary system. It turns out that its a Binary system with 6 planets. The two planets closest to the sun, are terrestrial and have uninhabitable, the third planet is a Gas Giant that is very tiny given as gas giants go. The Fourth planet is a terrestrial planet that sensors have been unable to penetrate due to some sort interference. The planet has also 12 moons. the group has succeeded with the assistance of Jessara in finding a position in Orbit that isn't as affected by the vying gravities of the moons. The group is preparing to go planetside. The other two planets, are Gas Giants one is Smallish the other is Enormously huge compared to Gas Giants of normal size.

Interesting additions. Just a couple of questions. Who are the UAC? Maybe you could create a write up on them. Who are the Kiinai Exploration? I'd like to know more about both of these organizations. Are either of them corporations? If so, you could always add them to our thread of Mega Corporations in the Phase World universe. I know I'd like to hear more about that. More about both organizations in your game would be very cool!

Kiinai Explorations is from Manhunter and with little modification they fit in my game. UAC is Union Aerospace Corporation (Yes I used the name from that) Hence why i am not sure I can type up info for them given that their name is from a vid game.

So you had to deal with Werewolves? Or maybe their cosmic cousins?

what is a void dragon


Void Dragon, a draconic creature that makes its home in the void of Hyperspace. Not much is known about these creatures. Rumor has it that some have come to the assistance of Space Ships lost in Hyperspace; though this is uncomfirmed. They range in size from 3000ft to 15000ft long from nose to tail, their six wings span equal to their body length and in some cases 50% more than. Coloration varies from an iridescent mottled black to shining iridescent silvery gold. It is known that they have a breath weapon that is energy based that does hurt Cosmo-Knights.

That'd be the one :D
Rather shy non-agressive beasties (as written), but when cornered...
oi!
Can we say ant-hive in blast-furnace time?

Combination of Muse going silent and RL stuff interfering.

That is my problem too. And it's been it for awhile. I'm hoping it can return to life sometime soon!

Game 1 Update.

The Die-Valkyrie having settled in orbit of the of the only planet with a Breathable Atmosphere is parked in Geo-Synchronous orbit. Due to a Miscommunication between Doctor Persia and Uno, the entire group went planetside before our good doctor was able to run her test for Micro-organisms that could threaten the health of the crew. Persia seriously peeved about it, was not pleased and ordered Full Environmental Protocols. Upon Arrival of the planet the group disembarked and wandered about in the forest for a while til dusk, again due to a break down in command communications nothing was really accomplished, until ducks when Howls tore the air and the group was attacked by a pack of Armored shadowy hound like creatures. Defeating the creatures they made it back to the landing area. The following morning Cedric in his Blackhorse Robot Vehicle (Modified Triax Dragonwing Increased size, armor and weapons package to fit the appropriate size fitted with a CG FTL Engine as well. *Note* This was created and submitted to me by the Player of Cedric*) and Marcethus in his Shadenthian Royal Fighter (Can't post due to converting outside Materials into Palladium System. But it looks like a smaller version of the B5 Shadow Scout Vessel, colored in Black and Red.) They scouted the area and found a base camp for the group. Moving the group over to the new site of the Base Camp with the assistance of Flameberge in her ship the Spirit. The group began setting up base camp, Agni assisting with Guard Duty as well as clearing debris for the tents and Landing Zones. Persia and Sal set up the Medical Environmental Tent up and proceeded to run the needed test for figuring out if there was anything that could harm the crew, she found that a number of Bacteria and Viruses acted like the basic cold and flu, Having studied them and the Valkyrie's Medical Databases she created an Inoculation that would help make sure the Crew did not get affected. Uno using the Dinah dug a trench around the side of the Camp that did not go against the side of a cliff that had been found. Cedric was in charge of Aerial recon, during one such run he encountered one of the native animals of the planet, in a moment of panic he attacked the creature, a creature that was 200ft long with 4 wings, a lizard like head with large mandibles on the side of its large fanged mouth. Pinning it to the ground he then got chewed out by Marcethus via Radio for assuming that all creatures were hostile, While he had the creature pinned to the ground the creature thrashed and tail whipped Cedric till he managed to get ahold of the tail. At this time a small group of the creatures were headed towards Cedric's location. Cedric regaining his senses let go of the creature, himself unsure if it was intelligent or not and realizing that he had made a mistake in attacking it. The creature flew off rejoining the small flight they inspected their comrade acting like the highly intelligent animals they were, As Cedric took off Marcethus in his Fighter remained letting the creatures make a threatening gesture without retaliating. Back at Camp the rest of the group relaxed when Marcethus returned. Camp continued to be worked on and settled in as the Fleet arrived in system. Persia still hadn't given clearance for her working up the inoculation wasn't complete. Marcethus communicating with the Fleet via the Communications system they had set up in the Command Center in the camp, kept the Fleet informed.

Game 2 Update

Uno during her communication with the Valkyrie detected an anomaly in the communications systems, took the Dinah back up to the Valkyrie and immersed herself in trying to figure out what was going on (AKA Player missed game). Sal and Persia Finished their Inoculation and went around to the group inoculating them and passing the data on to the fleet and lifting the Full Environmental Protocols. Agni continued to work with heavy labor for moving things that needed to get moved and working on the Security of the Camp. Shuttles from the Fleet started coming down and adding their parts to the camp. Mainly Scientific labs and gear. Marcethus Holed up in the Command Center was running various Data through the Valkyrie using her advanced systems to get a map of the area for possible sites. Cedric, on orders of Marcethus, took flight and did an aerial survey and about 700-800 miles away from the camp he located some ruins doing a preliminary check he found what appears to be a lift, and tried to jury rig a way to power it up, he succeeded only in shorting out the system. In the meantime, while Persia and Sal gave Flamberge her inoculation, there was an altercation between Sal and Flam, resulting in an angry Persia, Sal getting teleported off of the Spirit, which shorted out the system. Agni received his shot after overhearing Sal make a comment threatening to cut off Flam's hands if she ever touched him again. Being the dumb (not an insult Agni only has a 6 IQ) nice guy that he is tried to step in and quash talk like that about a fellow team member, which further irritated Persia because Agni didn't know the full story of what happened. Cedric Arrived back from his flight at this time as Marcethus was heading to intervene in the altercation and put a stop to it. He talked to Agni while Cedric got his shot. Flamberge sent her side of what happened to Marcethus while Marcethus let Persia and Sal cool off. Persia talked to Sal and he has agreed to tell Marcethus his side of what happened, as Marcethus has taken a more active role in the Command Structure once again. Meanwhile Marcethus using Jessara and the Valkyrie's sensors is plotting an expedition to the Ruins to survey and check them out.
