  1. Craethiel Kingdom (Photographer Steve Highfield) The Craethiel Kingdom is a wild, and untamed land where the monsters and animals of the land rule with an iron fist. Where legends stalk the lands like giants, and myths are the way of the world. A land filled with beauty and wonder, that the unwary traveller would find enchanting and irresistible. A land where the Eldyr’s travelled at will without fear. A land that had seen wars that would strike fear into the sturdiest of souls. It is unwise for an adventurer to strike forth alone for there is little protection beyond the walls of the Great City of Selil, or any of the towns and villagers that dot this harsh and unforgiving land. To the North, lies the huge, imposing peaks of the Therarr Mountains that tower high into the air, as if striving to touch the very heavens themselves. A perfect symbol for the land of Craethiel. Beautiful. Enchanting. Untamable and traversable by only a few. To the East sits the Dynx desert. A barren land of blistering heat and little water. The desert is nearly uncrossable at times due to rolling sand storms and below freezing temperatures at night. To attempt the feat is almost as possible as climbing to the very tallest of the Therarr peaks. To the South lays the forest of Rosayia, a deep thick curtain of darkness that seems to go on for an eternity. Hidden within its depths, are mysteries beyond comprehension, and creatures that would make your nightmares seem tame. For citizens, and travellers alike, this land is filled with wonder and danger. For some, it seems that there is nowhere safe. Be wary, dear traveller, of the land that sings its siren song. You might just meet your end...

Anything less than a paragraph, such as a one line post, will be removed and the member in question requested to not do that again. If you consistently post less than a paragraph, then your posts will be removed and you will be asked to leave the roleplay. No one can make a character that is of one of the Epsian/UFF species without my strict permission. Also, non-Epsian/UFF species will not be allowed to wander onto the property of Epsian/UFF species without permission. If a character attempts to trespass, they will be met with potentially lethal hostility. No one can RP as the human King who owns the land. If he is needed for anything, then I will roleplay with them providing that it’s a good plot that doesn’t ruin the flow of the RP. If you want a location put onto the map, then you’re going to need to message me with the details. If I don’t think the suggestion is good enough, or that the extra information you provide is lacking, then I might refuse.
  2. Warning: This Side Story will contain scenes of a graphic nature. This includes, but is not limited to, extreme violence and gore. If you find either of these themes distasteful, then please do not read. This thread will not contain any sex; it is an adventure thread. Participants: Daedrin and Izanagi Description: After Izanagi found a mysterious sword in the forest, he approached Deadrin to have it repaired however lacked the funds required to repair the sword. So the two came to an agreement that if Izanagi went into the Rosayia Forest and got his hands on Kraerhil, a rare exotic metal used in sword making, Daedrin would pay him for however much he retrieved. After some discussion, Daedrin agreed to accompany him on this quest as well to be a guide through the forest as well as to get their hands on more. -x-x-x-x-x-x-x- Once Izanagi joined him, Daedrin gave him a nod to show his approval before he turned back towards the forest. It seemed a little too quiet for his tastes, and he already had a gut feeling that they were going to encounter something very soon. But then he had inherited his Fathers tendency to get into trouble. He snorted a little in amusement at that though, the sound soft enough not to be overheard by Izanagi. Daegrin stirred a little restlessly, and Daedrin stroked his neck gently, “Daegrin senses that there’s something nearby. Let’s move, and keep an eye out.” Daedrin said in warning as he kicked Daegrin’s flanks lightly causing the Aelda to move forwards slightly, heading along the river. Daedrin pulled out his sword, not wanting to be caught completely off guard. He could cut their travel time down by cutting through the forest, but it was rather dangerous due to the fact that the more dangerous monsters lived deeper inside the forest. He didn’t fear being lost, as his sense of direction was as good as any Eldyrannth, allowing him to navigate the forest with ease without being caught in never-ending circles. Daedrin cast an eye up at the sun, seeing that it was the mid-afternoon so they had at least a few hours of travelling time left in the day before they even considered settling down for the night. His eyes returned to the forest, watching it carefully as he strained his ears for anything. In the end, he wasn’t able to see or hear anything. But he could smell something with his sharp nose. He opened his mouth slightly, inhaling sharply before snapping his mouth shut as he resisted the urge to evacuate the contents of his stomach. The stench of rotting flesh pervaded the air, getting stronger by the moment. Daegrin stirred again, snorting in a challenging manner. Daedrin looked over at Izanagi, “We have company. There are ghouls nearby…” He said, before casting his mind out around them, careful to avoid going close to Izanagi’s just in case the man could sense the touch of telepathy. He could sense at least five of the bastards that were homing in on their direction. He pulled his mind back, shifting the grip on his sword to be more comfortable. There was a sudden growl from the bushes as something leapt out towards Daedrin. The figure was completely naked, and was so emaciated that it would have been mistaken for a reanimated skeleton if it wasn’t for the rotting pieces of flesh that clung to its body. Its hands, although human-like, looked like claws with filthy black fingernails. Its cheeks were gaunt, as its eye sockets were sunken into its face as the eyes gave them a gormless look that was filled with an insatiable hunger. Its jaw was hanging low, only attached by a few thin threads of flesh, as its tongue dangled from its mouth. As it flew through the air, Daegrin jumped to the side as Daedrin swung his blade in an arch. The silver blade easily sunk through the flesh of its neck, chopping its head off. The body tumbled to the ground as the head sailed further through the air before rolling into some bushes. The remaining four ghouls appeared, snarling at the two of them. Daedrin glanced at Izanagi before returning his gaze to the rotting creatures. Two of them completely ignored him and leapt towards Izanagi, leaving Daedrin dealing with the remaining two. One of them leapt forwards, but Daegrin danced out of the way before twisting around and kicking out with his powerful hint-quarters. Daedrin could hear the snapping of bones as the ghoul was kicked back at its companion, knocking them both to the ground. Daegrin turned around just as the two scrambled to their feet and lunged again. Daedrin brought down his sword, the sharp blade slicing down through its skull and into what remained on its brain causing it to become limp and drop to the floor, dead. Unfortunately, his blade seemed content to remain lodged within its skull despite how hard he tugged it. The third creature leapt up towards him, intending on pushing him out of his saddle. Daedrin tugged at his sword more, but it refused to move. He turned his head towards the creature, intending on using telekinesis to deflect it however Daegrin reared up with an angry whinny. He lashed out with his front legs, knocking the ghoul down onto the floor. Before it could even get up, Daegrin brought his polished hooves down and began to stamp the monster into the ground until it lay lifeless beneath him, as if the Aelda took the danger it posed as a personal affront. This gave Daedrin enough time to pull his foot from his stirrup and use the strength of his leg to push the ghoul off of his sword. He then turned in his saddle to see how Izanagi was fairing.

    Ideas for RP

    Hey all! I have some ideas for RPs. Robot X Scientist A scientist creates a prototype android woman for a new line of robots almost indistinguishable from humans. Keeping her in the lab, the android begins to fall in love with her creator and begins to upgrade herself in secret to please him... Demon X Angel: Marriage In an attempt to broker peace between Heaven and Hell, the heirs to both are forced to marry each other and live among humanity on the only neutral ground both sides know. Superhero X Supervillain A superhero/heroine discovered that their archenemy was their boyfriend/girlfriend beneath the mask. Can also do a forbidden affair between hero and villain too. Prince X Princess A war between two kingdoms leaves the prince and princess having to meet in secret in a forbidden affair. Demon Queen X Human In the midst of a war between Humans and Demons, a man finds an injured woman and tends to her injuries only to discover that she was a demon in disguise. Some time later, his village is raided by demon forces and he is taken to their queen who is the same demon he had helped earlier. Demon X Priestess A god had abandoned a temple under his power, leaving the priestess (or priestesses) at the mercy of a powerful demon who has been either imprisoned by the god or has been kept away by the god's holy power. Queen/Princess X Commoner Alien x Human Elf X Human A widowed Elf finds an abandoned human baby and raised him like her own son. Once he comes of age, their relationship becomes more like lovers than of mother and son... If any of these grab your attention, please drop me a line and we can work something out.

  6. Welcome to the land of the Dead; Ashaea. A once thriving and bustling country that was leading the world in innovation and technology. Now now it lies as a wasteland, its cities and towns in ruins. Its streets swarm with the hordes of the dead, who relentlessly hunt down anyone that survives to either eat them, or recruit them to their growing army of undead. This is the world that your characters have found themselves in, and it will be tough for them to survive. They will be constantly hunted, and there is always the chance that when they wake up in the morning, it will be in their last day. Every day will be a struggle to survive. Can they escape the hordes, and make it to safety? Or can they build themselves a safe shelter? Your actions as a roleplayer will determine if your characters survive this harsh and unforgiving land. Be mindful of your decisions, and be mindful of the actions you take for your characters. Be warned! This roleplay can result in permanent character death. Skill level: Expert due to the rules, but roleplayer skill can be Advanced level. I am quite new to this kind of roleplay so mistakes are bound to be made, and improvements to be had. Please give me constructive feedback! Relevant links: Lore Thread Rules Character ID The Bunker (OoC) Joining this roleplay. In order to join this roleplay, you must have a Character ID that is complete. Read the rules. It is very important that you read the rules before participating in this roleplay.

    A New Life

    A colony ship carrying humans on an exodus from a dying Earth crash lands on a strange planet. With the crew dead and the ship damaged beyond repair, the colonists have to find a way to survive this new world and even repopulate the world to thrive once more. If possible, I'd like this to be a multi-generational RP with each generation advancing the world from a near medieval setting to taking to the stars once more. If you're interested in this RP, drop me a line and we can bounce more ideas.

    Olivia

    From the album: Garnish's RP characters

    Name: Olivia Franco | Age: 18 | Gender: Female | Height: 155cm | Species: Bunny girl hybrid | Origin/Nationality: Nothing spesific | Occupation: College student (studying marketing) | General Overview: Olivia was born into a world where humans had come as far as trying to hybrid themselves with other animals to gain either desired looks or enhanced abilities. Sadly, hybrid people in this world, even if they have incredible abilities, had rights taken away from them. People would often look down upon them, and demean them as nothing more than "intellegent pets". Many are sold on the market, adopted right from birth, or tossed out into the street. They are still continuing being treated as these disposable and buyable "pets" 'til this day. Luckily, these hybrids reserve SOME rights, like the chance to get an education, and even a job if they pass a certain test. This test is originally meant to see if they are in control of their animal counterpart, and if they are able to live in a human society. Olivia was one of these hybrids who managed to pass the test. She was highly motivated to pass it, because she was often treated less than a human due to her adorable bunny hybrid looks. Always taken less seriously and always seen as less capable. Filled with determination to show the people she was worth equally as much, or maybe even more, she studied hard and eventually passed the test. She is now in higher education, which few hybrid humans make it to (due to the tests being rather unfair towards them). She wants a voice to spread the message of equality, and believes media and marketing is the way to do it. (thus why she studies it!) Strengths, Skills and Abilities: Persistant, Strong willed, fast and witty. | Weaknesses: Psychally weak, stubborn, a brat, feisty/hot-headed, judgemental, arguementative. Ambitions (Hopes/Dreams): To bring equality to hybrid humans. | Hobbies and Interests: Fashion, jogging/running, writing a diary. | Sexual Orientation: bi-curious (leans more towards males) Turn ons: Total domination, being bitten, rough treatment, pain & pleasure, bondage/restrictions. | Turn offs: Being treated like she's worthless.|

    Leya

    From the album: Garnish's RP characters

    Name: Leya Inabella | Age: Depends on the roleplay! | Gender: Female | Height: 160cm | Species: Elf | Origin/Nationality: Northern elf | Occupation: Helping her tribe. General Overview: Leya was born into a tribe in the northern part of the world. Sun was only out for a few hours where her tribe was located, and thus over thousands of years her tribe developed little to no pigment in their skin and hair. Although, their eyes is an exception, bearing an outstanding amber. She's very sensetive to the sun, and needs an umberella over her when exposed to it. She has barely wandered outside of her tribes territory, kept at bay for her own safety. Thus, she is extremely underexposed to the world around her, but very curious about it. She's a very careful and shy girl, every move she makes is graceful and gentle. She beams of innocence, and her tribe wishes to keep it that way. Strengths, Skills and Abilities: Sharp hearing, good survival skills in cold environments, flexible and quiet. | Weaknesses: Psychally weak, gullible and naive. | Ambitions (Hopes/Dreams): To explore the world beyond her tribes forest. | Hobbies and Interests: making snow sculptures, creating medecine. Sexual Orientation: She doesn't know yet (open to female and male basically!) Turn ons: Being dominated, rough but soft sex, small kisses | Turn offs: Biting, pain, choking, etc. |

  10. Warning: This Side Story will contain scenes of a graphic nature. This includes, but is not limited to, sex, threesomes, first times. If you find either of these themes distasteful, then please do not read. This thread will not contain any sex; it is an adventure thread. Participants: Wolfe, Cole and Hanako Description: After settling in a somewhat safe house, Wolfe and Hanako planned on having a bath with the houses supply of water. Before they could, Cole stumbled onto their doorstep where he begged entrance. As they have yet to put their trust in Cole, they had decided to take Cole with them for their bath where they hope to release some pent up tension. State changes for all participants: -20 Hunger points, -30 Thirst points, +20 Sanity points. -x-x-x-x-x-x-x- Wolfe’s blue eyes shifted to look at Cole before he gave a slightly strained smile, “A little tired, perhaps. Who isn’t these days?” He asked back, skirting around the question that he really didn’t want to answer. Besides, it wasn’t entirely untrue. He was tired. He had been tired for about a year now. One had always sleep lightly in these times. If one didn’t, one might get caught off-guard by zombies sneaking up on them. He then looked over at Hanako when she spoke and he gave her one his charming smiles, “We’ll be there in a few minutes.” He said, watching as she walked out of the garage. After a moment, he turned back and said, “We’ll give her a couple of minutes to settle. Besides; I want to get Penny up into the attic so that she can sit with Zoe while we’re in the bathroom. I trust her judgement of you but… I don’t quite trust you alone with my little sister. Not yet, anyway.” He didn’t bother apologising for it, because he had the feeling that Cole would understand. Personality-wise, Cole seemed quite a good man. Someone that could be dependable. But Wolfe was cautious of putting him with that level of trust just yet. He then stood up, stroking along Penny’s face as she whined in disappointed, “Come on, Penny.” He said, his fingers tickling behind her ear before he looked at Cole and jerked his head towards the door. He then turned and left the garage, holding the door open for Penny to slip past him as well as for Cole, “Just lock the door behind you.” He said to the other man, pointing with his good hand towards the lock of the garage door into the study which had a key in it. He waited until Cole had done that before leading him out into the main hallway and to the stairs. He carefully stepped over Hanako’s noise trap while Penny slipped underneath it. He moved up the curved stairs to the landing, where the ladder was still down from the attic. He looked down at Penny and indicated with his arm for her to go up, “Up you go, Penny.” He said. She tilted her head at him, whining softly. She nuzzled his leg before gingerly placing her front legs on the steps of the ladder. As it was one that was angled, rather than straight up, he was able to then scramble up. He watched carefully, ready to help her up if he needed to, but she disappeared from view into the dark attic. He nodded in satisfaction before bending and grabbing onto the ladder and pushing it up so that the attic was locked. It would keep the two of them safe while the three of them were having their bath. He then grinned at Cole before moving into the master bedroom. He could hear splashing from the bathroom, which could only be Hanako. He reached up and undid the zip of his leather jacket before he frowned as he realised it was going to be awkward undressing with his broken wrist. He looked at Cole and asked, “Do you mind helping me undress? At least, if you’re not too shy to?” He hoped Cole wasn’t the shy type. He would really appreciate the help undressing because otherwise it would take longer than he liked to get out of his clothes.
  11. Welcome to the Utopian Curse (Photograph of Saint Martin (island). Photographer unknown) Blinking against the harsh light of the sun above you, you awaken to find yourself on an island. An island you have no recollection of travelling to or arriving at. Scanning the area you can tell only that the island is a tropical location, with palms trees swaying gently in a light breeze, and the fresh smell of the ocean on the clean air. Unknown to you is the fact that you have been taken by beings to this strange island, taken from your bed and planted here on this small tropical island. But what for? There are no clues, so you are left to only guess as to your reason of being here. A dream, perhaps? An experiment? Perhaps merely a kidnapping? A strange occurrence comes about when you meet other ‘survivors’ on the island. It becomes apparent that the time space continuum is being crossed. People are being taken from planets and time lines not of this world, and placed here alongside you. But why? Upon this tropical island there is limited technology. Resources are only what the island can produce for you to survive. Other ‘survivors’ litter the island and some may possibly not be as friendly as you would assume, or even dare to hope. Survival is the priority. Teamwork a secondary point. Will the ‘survivors’ of the island come together to survive and build a community to ensure safety and peace? Or will they fight for space and resources, shedding blood upon the golden sands of the tropical island? What will be YOUR tale in this strange, yet beautiful island?

  12. Andromeda One Station (NASA Ames/SETI Institute/JPL-Caltech) In a neutral zone on the edge of the Andromeda Galaxy, in the darkness of space, lies a Space Station. This is the Andromeda One Station, in the system of Churchill's Legacy. Within the same solar system as the station is a jump gate that links to the Milky Way Galaxy, and Earth. On the station, Merchants come from all over both Galaxies for a chance to trade with other races. This station is run by humans, but is home to hundreds of alien species that are there for trade. Not only does it serve as a place of commerce, it is also a platform for Diplomatic parties of various species to come and speak to one another in a neutral part of space, as fighting and wars are not allowed to occur. The station is heavily armed to oppose any violent ships intent on war. Here you can create your own race, with their own culture and rules. Have them come to the station to trade or negotiate with others. How could it ever go bad?

The exceptions being The Wet Hole, and Jen’starrs Bar and Restaurant, as these serve customers on the Andromeda Station. Anyone is able to create their own species, and have them have their own planet/territory in space as well as an ambassador. However it will require a very detailed extra information before it can be added to the list of related extra information.
  13. Non-Playable Characters This thread has several purposes. The first of which, is to inform you of how Andromeda One deals with NPCs, and even Featured NPCs. While NPCs are often random figures such as a woman at a reception desk of some restaurant or shop on the station, a Featured NPC is an individual that is owned by a Roleplayer but isn't a fully formed character. This individual serves the purpose of driving a roleplay forward and for helping in the development of our characters, thus they are roleplayed only in specific circumstances. These featured NPCs, depending on how the owner wishes for it to be, can either be generally roleplayed by all players or restricted to the owner. The first place that NPCs can be found are Lore threads, such as the Andromeda Station one which has images of the Station Commander, Alexander Churchill, and the Chief of Security, Christopher Barnes. These are featured NPCs of the roleplay and are restricted to being controlled by the Game Master; Me. But these are figures that can be referenced by other characters, as well as spoken about. If you wish for a character to interact with them, please contact me and I will talk to you about it. Another place to find featured NPCs would also be Locations, where these NPCs would be tied to the location, such as CEOs, or even the Bar Owner for a bar, or simple clerks in a shop. Featured NPCs can also be tied to a character within their ID. However this thread is for NPCs that don't fall into any of these categories. At the moment, it's the only solution to keep them in one place since I currently cannot create a single album which allows everyone to post pictures in it. So post the images in the Extra Information Images, and post them up in this thread along with this simple template: Name: Date of Birth: Age: Species: Height: Weight: Nationality: Occupation: Information: Of course, you are free to add or change any of the fields if they are more suitable to your NPC. Double posting is allowed within this thread, as with all Extra Information threads.
  14. Jennaea’s Bar and Restaurants Company Jennaea’s Company falls within the station’s tax laws. So much so that the company gives over voluntary taxes and thus it is important to the economy of the station as a whole. These funds are often directed by the station to aid facilities such as the sick bay, especially for the purchase of medicine and care for those living Down Below. The company serves both the economically dependant (Poor) and the economically independent sections of the station, delivering safe to consume food and drink regardless of price tag. Three main components make up this company: The Wet Holes (Bar and Restaurant, located in down below’s market district) Jen’s Pleasure Bar (Bar and Holosuites, located on the main floor of the central column’s main district) The Stuffed Holes (Restaurant, located on the upper floor of the central coloum’s main district) Station staff have access to free water or orange juice from this bar. They also enjoy the following discounts as a ‘Thank you for your service’ from the company: All drinks (Inc. Synthoholic) - 20% Off Meals - 25% Off Sweets (Desserts, Confectionary, Chocolates) - 10% Off There is a common misconception with this company: Whilst it can indeed provide a wide range of food and drink, they cannot do absolutely everything - certainly a problem with alien dishes, if they’ve never had access to those aliens food and drink before. But if that person has a sample, or can provide the exact specifications of the food in question, it may be possible that it’s servable. That said they still don’t have a menu, as with all earth dishes they can serve it. Since the starting of the company the station staff have become aware of a few differences that has allowed her to keep her costs low, and not sacrifice on quality, hygiene or principles. Whilst it’s not something that they would openly admit to everyone: Jennaea’s Bar and Restaurants Company uses EPSI Federation sourced power sources and technology such as holosuites and energy-to-matter/matter-to-energy replicators/recyclers, but in the upper sections they bring in non-replicated food and drink as well. But because the technology isn’t compatible with the station’s power reactor (And even if it was, it’d sap all energy out of the station, because it doesn’t produce enough for the technology). The power-source is a non-reaction based dimensional crystal from the Eldyrannth state in the EPSI Federation, that can be recharged by the Eldyrannth for a fee. The company is an EPSI Federation Culture ran company; therefore the names of the components are designed to be sexually suggestive, and the company believes very deeply in the right to free speech and opinions but above all else after that they believe in being unwaveringly honest, and Jen’starr the manager believes in being blunt and to the point. This is emphasized by the sign in the restaurant that reads “All meat served by this establishment is suitable for vegetarians and vegan pussy’s.” If asked if their meat is Halal for example, their usual response is “Our meat was never alive to begin with.” Which is the truth. The bars serve both Alcohol and Synthohol (Or Synthehol); which is a chemical variant of alcohol that appears to have the same taste and smell as "real" alcohol to most individuals, but none of the deleterious effects associated with alcohol for most humanoids, such as debilitating intoxication, addiction, and alcohol poisoning. Most humanoids have an enzyme which breaks down the alcohol-like compounds in synthohol. The intoxicating effects of Synthohol can be easily dismissed. So it acts just the same as alcohol, makes you feel that you can be a lover, or wise, or all the things that alcohol does, but it's only temporary. With a force of will, you can shove it aside and you're as sober as you ever were. Brief History: The company started as a front in down below for Jen’starr to make new contacts in the underworld, and to sell weapons and such to less than shady characters as well as to be a bounty contactor connected to several bounty stations across the EPSI Federation, EPSI Pirates and Andromeda. Although no one had really heard of her, other than those that were poor, or specifically looking for her. Back then her bar was called The Moist Snatch, and she operated there for years without having any real problems. Many criminals in down below tried to take over her establishment, and almost all of them have ended up either dead, or disappeared. Every time she’s been forced to kill someone in her bar - in front of witnesses - she’s had to inform the station’s chief security officer of their death and why, as well as showing them covert recordings made from a yet unknown positioned camera, to prove that the deaths were justified as self-defence. A year prior to the current year she had a complaint put in about the name of her bar to station management stating that the name of her bar was ‘horrifically offensive’, ‘misogynistically sexist’ and ‘primitively minded’ to which her unofficial response when the station commander told her of this was “Tell them to get fucking stuffed.” She remained stubborn and stern on her stance and refused to change the name. Despite the mounting protests from a vocal minority who were using bullying to the station commander to force him to try and force her to rename the bar. They were even pulling in people directly from Earth just to protest the bar, both off and on the establishment. Eventually causing Jen’starr to force a ‘If you’re not here on business, you’re not welcome here.’ Policy, and told Christopher to “Remove them, or I will remove them myself. And you know what that means.” Station security were able to remove them, however they protested outside and prevented people from going in - and if anyone tried, they’d be bullied. This all came to ahead one day when Kal’loure Mako’demeri, a frequent bar patreon ordered them that if they didn’t get out of the way, he will start shooting at them, after they had blocked access for him, and even had a group of them just walking into him saying “We’re just walking. You’re in our personal space” Which had the effect of pushing him away from the door. He told them if they didn’t cease this, he’d shoot all of them. … That is exactly what happened. Using an EPSI Federation Phaser, set on stun, Kal’loure phased them all and simply walked over them to get into the bar. In the Police report he respected their right to protest as it is their free speech and opinion, but what he didn’t respect was to prevent access to the establishment, and to physically stop those from getting inside - as this was battery. This brought the ringleader and Jen’starr to the table with the commander being the moderator in the discussions to find a peaceful resolution to this. But Jen’starr refused, and told her “I will not be censored. You claim to fight for women’s rights, and yet you trample all over mine. Of course we all know that it’s because I don’t have the right opinion, so therefore I’m not a woman, I’m a gender traitor. I will not change the name of my bar. If you don’t like it, go fuck off and make one called the Flacid Cock or something. Or more accurately with you bitches: The Frigid Cunt.” With the talks ending in obvious failure, Alexander tried to talk to them separately, rather than put them in the same room as each other whilst at the same time establishing some new rules for station protests of a business. Such as you weren’t allowed to block and assault people from entering, of course that didn’t stop these ‘women’s rights fighters’ from simply trying to just pay people to not enter and make up slanderous lies about the owner. But by this point, even though the real problem was isolated to down below it was quickly disrupting station operations with frequent protests in highly public areas. The protesters were bringing more and more people onto the station to protest and it got to the point where enough was enough. Alexander spoke to Axel to try and understand why she couldn’t even compromise on this issue - not that he wanted her to, as he believed that Jen’starr had done nothing wrong. And Axel told him; “Because in the EPSI Federation we did this once. Capitulated to the demands of the vocal minority funded by a Corporate Entity. This eventually lead to more and more capitulation, until the point that this vocal minority now wielded the power that even the majority didn’t have. This brought in Keza Corp’s dystopia and all hell followed right along that Corporatocracy. No Epsian worth their soul, today will capitulate to the demands of unreasonable identitarian ideologues. She’s quite right to refuse and stand her ground; more power to her.” Axel then added, “I had no idea that this was the focus point of the disruptions around the station as of late… If you’ll excuse me, I am going to show my support for her.” With that Axel left, and went to Jen’starrs bar to spend his money there. Eventually Alexander returned to Jen’starr and told her that she will capitulate and change the name just like the protestors suggested. She immediately opened her mouth to fire something now doubt - very spicy - back at him but he said “Ah-ah! Let me finish. All they requested was that you changed the name. I suggest to you; that they should be careful for they wish for.” Jen’starr shut her mouth and then smiled. It was a smile that revealed her brain was ticking away on some good ideas, and it was very chilling, “The Submissive Bitch, it is then.” Jen’starr replied. “Perhaps a little… Too on the nose there.” Alexander said, before telling her that it’s about subtlety, suggestivism, that it should be witty and clever so that things could be turned back on them if they kicked up a fuss about it. Jen’starr really liked this idea, and said that she was going to close the bar down and renovate it at the end of the year anyway, but instead she chose to start on it now and expand it. She purchased three other locations above the bar in down below so that she would effectively have one company and she was going to split it up, make food available to people on the top. She went back to EPSI Federation space to hire the workmen and technology. The bar was then closed down for six months whilst the whole thing was being done up, this was enough time for the protestors to think that they had won, and left the station allowing the station to get back to normal operation. When it opened again they called the bar in down below “The Wet Hole”, which whilst sexually suggestive, could actually have a lot of meanings, to the bounty hunters - the wet bullet hole wound, to the sexually inclined - A cunt that was just as divine, to normal punters - The mouth of which you wet with drinks. The bar above it was to be the social centre of the station; and was simply called “Jen’s Pleasure Bar”, which had the nickname “Jen’s”, “The Pleasure Bar” and so on. This would be on the main section of the station, right in the path of new people embarking on the station, and on the path of disembarkation in the centre of the marketplace. This also was good for people who turned up waiting for their friends to have a place to drink. She got the idea of this from Deep Space Nine’s: Quarks. There would also be a suite of twelve holosuites there, allowing people to run sexual, hiking, swimming, fantasy, games, sports programs and many more. It could also be used for training new staff by the station’s officers. Upstairs to that, which was publically accessible either in the bar itself or from outside on the upper collum, was the restaurant, “The Stuffed Holes” which again could have multiple meanings depending on personal inclination. On opening day she dropped all prices for one day only, allowing everyone to get a good bargain and to celebrate the opening of the new company. She also implemented a new discount scheme to all station members of staff - including those who weren’t in command staff, such as maintenance workers, dock staff, waste management and so on. These discounts were equal across the board, and it didn’t matter if you were a manual labourer or the station commander - they all have the same discount - which is permanent.
  15. The Stuffed Holes Restaurant The Stuffed Holes, sometimes known as the “Stuff Yourself Silly, Restaurant” is a restaurant owned by the Jennaea’s Bar and Restaurants Company. It is located above the Jen’s Pleasure Bar and is available to access at all hours, every day via the upper commercial rings or the stairs in the bar. It can accommodate upto 2,000 people maximum, and is usually busy around peak hours (Meal times). There are two empty and unused rooms in the restaurant at the moment that are unused - but probably will be used later. The food here almost assuredly replicated by the use of Matter-to-Energy and Energy-to-Matter converters, or Replicators for short. A technology inspired by Star Trek that the EPSI Federation has actually made a thing. As a result; as per her notices on the menus; “All meat served in this establishment is suitable for Vegetarian and Vegan pussies.” Whilst their food is more expensive than the Wet Holes (In down below) this is a safer area to eat, and the food is still far cheaper than real grown/cultivated food - and often safer too, and yet tastes, smells and feels the same as the real thing; and is as neutrictional, and filling. As food is replicated, it’s typically served within minutes of ordering, sometimes seconds - depending on how busy the restaurant is. But customers are not left waiting for more than ten minutes for their meal to arrive. If there is any left over food, the food can be put back into a replicator and recycled back into energy. The holographic band that play here, usually play classical music, and because it’s using EPSI Federation Holographic technology; it’s not really distinguishable from the real thing. This is of course; a real band could be playing there, depending on how good they are. This, like Jen’s Pleasure Bar is a legitimate business, and as such there are no shady or illegal deals going on between Jen’starr and the customers here. (Mockup - Layout) The restaurant is just as expansive as the bar below, and there are subtle air conditioners to keep it at a constant temperature as having lots of people in the room often raises the temperature and make it hot, and stuffy. The is a massive open doorless entrance way in which anyone on the station looking at buying can take a seat at any of the tables* and look through the menus. * It should be noted that a single person can’t take up a table designed for six or more, unless there’s no room, even then single people might be asked to sit with other people if larger tables are needed for groups - obviously if you're not already eating. Also the six tables with 14 seats around them are reservation/large groups only. The menu’s are more of an interactive piece, of datapads locked to the table where you can either buy what you want to eat from the menu there and then, or call for a waiter. It also shows every single pattern on a replicator, and will accept ‘Diet Cards’ issued by your Doctor to give you the best possible meal for your dietary requirements. Costs are clearly printed on the menus. Like with the windows down stairs in the Pleasure Bar, the windows up here look out into space, but have a holomesh on them so that they can actually be changed to anything, if Jen’starr so wants to. There are lots of smaller tables around them, as it’s usually considered a romantic spot for couples (or more) to sit and eat next to the windows. Although window seats have a 10% additional charge, unless the restaurant is full, which is handled through automation. Manager: Jen’starr Epsi’rikixi Parent Company: Jennaea’s Bar and Restaurants Company Location: Commerce District - Right outside embarkation/disembarkation and station’s customs, Upper Floor, Andromeda One Space Station Services: Food and Drink, Take-away Capacity: 1,000 - 2,000 People Opening Times: Always For more information about holographic technology, replicated technology and the power source, please read the Company Topic.
  16. Jen’s Pleasure Bar Bar and Holosuites Also known as Jen’s, The Pleasure Bar, the Epsian Bar and so on. It is located in main commercial district and fully visible from the embarkation/disembarkation area around the main column. It is a low-risk, low-danger bar that is covered as part of Station Security patrol routes. I falls under the legality of the station, and therefore there isn’t as much illegality being conducted here as there would be in The Wet Holes, below this bar. This is more than just a bar though, it is a certified pleasure centre of the station; and as such there are twelve large holosuites that can be rented out on an hourly basis. It also contains a private bar for Ambassadors, although some have expressed concerns that the room could be bugged there has been no evidence of this, and Jen’starr has flat out denied it because it would be illegal, and she made a promise to Alexander that this bar would be legit and above board. The holosuites in the ambassidreal room are smaller, but they’re designed for less people (Small groups) and can be hired out for cheaper by ambassadors. (Mockup - Layout) The bar is an important social hub of the station. It is frequented by station staff who come here to socialise and have a good time with friends. It is one of the highlighted facilities in the tourist brochure with a high recommendation from even the Station Captain, Alexander. At the furthest reaches of the room there are large windows looking out into space, although they have holographic overlays inserted into the glass; meaning that Jen’starr can in fact change them to whatever she wants - if she wants to make it look like that Earth is right outside; she can and have it simulate daylight as if the sunlight itself was tempered by special glass to prevent it from burning everyone’s eyes out. From the moment one walks into the room through the open doorless space there is a hexagonal water fountain that quietly spits water up into the air seamlessly (Laminar Flow) and each stream of water changes colour through every colour on the spectrum. It is a very, very large room and has a capacity for two thousand people - maximum. There is a stairwell in the upper corner that takes you up to the Stuffed Holes restaurant, and in front of that is a classical band that play bar music (Holographic). The bar itself is massive; and behind the counter, on the shelves with the drinks, there is a wall waterfall that flows ice cold water through the semi-hydrophobic bottles that keeps the drinks at a very cool temperature. This bar is never empty and is open all the time, with staff that work in shifts around the clock, and as such it’s been a source of jobs on the station which helps keep people out of Down Below. Manager: Jen’starr Epsi’rikixi Parent Company: Jennaea’s Bar and Restaurants Company Location: Commerce District - Right outside embarkation/disembarkation and station’s customs, Main Floor, Andromeda One Space Station Services: Drink and Holoservices Capacity: 1,000 - 2,000 People Opening Times: Always For more information about holographic technology, replicated technology and the power source, please read the Company Topic.
  17. The Wet Holes Bar and Restaurant The Wet Holes is a bar and restaurant located in down below, it is apart of the Jennaea’s Bar and Restaurants Company owned by Jen’starr Epsi’rikixi, but this specific establishment runs and operates in ‘Down Below’. The problem with Down Below is that there is a lot of crime, and a lot of people in down below don’t have very much money - if any at all. As such The Wet Holes often takes the law in it’s own hands whilst operating and take a balance between Universal Rights Absolutism, Station Laws and Policies, and the Unwritten Rules of Down Below. Whilst on average food and drink is indeed cheaper in this bar and restaurant than the company’s other two establishments, it’s considered to be far more dangerous and filled with unsavoury characters. In the keeping of tradition; there is a lot more to this bar that meets the eye. The dangerousness of it and it’s location is a good place to keep prying eyes away from some of the more illegal and illicit services that are conducted here. As such the Bar and Restaurant main profit margin is covered by these services, the clandestine portion of it is but a cover for it’s real purpose. Caution should be advised here. Jen’starr Epsi’rikixi keeps weapons around her at all times, and she has been very well known to use them in the bar with deadly and accurate proficiency. Manager: Jen’starr Epsi’rikixi Parent Company: Jennaea’s Bar and Restaurants Company Location: Down below, Andromeda One Space Station Services: Food, Take-Away, Drink, Micro-Casino, Gambling, Bounty Hunters Guild, Illegal/Illicit Services Capacity: 100 - 200 people Opening times: Always Appearance (Mockup - Layout) The Wet Hole Bar is a medium sized establishment. It follows the general appearance of Down Below, with a lot of metal bulkheads and it being rather dim in terms of lighting. The bar is long, with the counter being about stomach high on an average sized human male. Behind the bar are rows of what appears to be glass shelving, backed with RGB light panels that can be programmed to display whatever image Jen’starr desires. The shelves are stacked with various cups and glasses, as well as a wide range of bottles of alcohol that she serves to customers from a wide range of cultures such as from the Earth Alliance, EPSI Federation and any aliens on the station. There is a door behind the bar, which allows the bar staff to head into the back room. To the left of the bar, after it curved into the wall, are two doors that lead to toilets. One door leads into the female toilets, while the other leads into the male toilets. Tucked up against the bar are sturdy, but comfortable bar stools. They are sturdy enough to handle even a Grand Zeta. The main floor of the bar is populated with tables and chairs, allowing patrons of the bar to sit down and enjoy their drinks. Around the edge of the room, though, there are small alcoves with tables hidden within the dimness which allow patrons to have a measure of privacy from the rest of the room. The Micro-Casino is tucked away in one corner of the room, this has a few slot machines with stools in front of them, and a roulette table. Some of the tables in this corner are specially designed card tables that deal with large groups of people playing such as Poker and Blackjack. Prostitutes do operate in the area, however it is unclear if there is a deal going on with Jen’starr to allow them to pick up clients in the bar or not. Services Drinks The Wet Holes hosts a number of services, on the front and as far as most people are aware, it is a bar where people can have a drink and a restaurant. This bar serves both Alcohol and Synthohol (Of which you can see more information of in the Jennaea’s Bar and Restaurants Company topic) drinks, as well as soft drinks and water. Food and Takeaway The food aspect is one hundred percent replicated, keeping costs at extremely affordable rates; even the poor can eat a five star meal with lobsters or several ounce steak for less than a credit. Orders can be made for take-away as well, which gives jobs to people in down below as delivery agents (Clean Criminal Record, Required), and they can do all kinds of food that would be available at the restaurants and food vendors on the station. She also has her infamous: All meat and dairy products sold on these premises are suitable for vegetarians and vegan pussy’s, sign. Gambling Of course with food and drink usually being sold so close to the cost price of the energy cost in replication; Jen’starr usually has a lot more other business on the side. As such there is usually a gambling master (Bookie) in her bar, who works for her via the EPSI Pirates; although he is a Tau’ri (Human) who is well known for his neutrality. As such he will take bets for anything presented to him. Micro-Casino There is also a micro-casino in this bar, where people can play certain games although to keep it legal under the station’s laws - she has not rigged any of the systems. She has made it clear to her staff that she will not cheat the poor. As such there is a few card games tables, roulette style games and slot machines, but there’s only a small number of them. Simply because there is a demand, but no supply - if there was a supply and no demand for her machines, she’d get rid of them and make way for more card games tables of which there seems to be quite a bit of demand for. Bounty Hunters Guild Jen’starr is a certified guild mistress for the bounty hunters on Andromeda One and she takes this job very seriously. Whilst 99% of the contracts undertaken through here are indeed bounty contracts, there are, on rare occasions one or two “Securities Contracts” in where a bounty hunter will be asked to provide protection to someone or escort a transport ship, or to retrieve something that is stolen. She doesn't like falsely advertised contracts and will protect those that take up contracts from mis-sold contracting. She takes bounty contracts from the following sources: Independent She will take contracts from those who are trusted or meet her criteria. EPSI Federation - An Epsus Galaxy Super Power She will happily take Federal Arrest Warrants (F.A.Ws) as usually those kinds of contracts are strictly ‘No Kill’ as the EPSI Federation doesn’t go about the business of issuing state sanctioned murder. EPSIPirates - Her Pirate Clan (Omega Runes) Unlike the EPSI Federation an EPSIPirate Contract might be a kill contract, it could be a no-kill contact or an either/or thing. The Madrelari Empire - A species in the Epsus Galaxy In complete opposite to the EPSI Federation: These are almost always kill contacts. Although on some rare occasions there will be one or two that are wanted alive. Andromeda One Station Police - Local Law Enforcement Like the EPSI Federation there are very, very few contracts that are kill. Most of them are no-kill contracts, and in that most of them are capture and detain/capture and bring to Station security. Earth Alliance - Milkyway Galaxy/Andromeda Galaxy Whether a contract is a kill or a no-kill contract will depend entirely on the planet of origin. Corporate Contracts This is a mixture of various corporations across three different galaxies. What the contract will demand will depend entirely on the corporation themselves. This is by no means a definitive list; but it gives you some idea of what she deals with. Illegal and Illicit Services It should come as no surprise that perhaps 100% of the stations Epsian narcotics such as Epsian-Cannabis, cLSD, Sparkpowder and Jet/Slo-mo comes through The Wet Hole. Although on rare occasions, another drug that appears from the Epsus Galaxy (Specifically: Xantal’lar, is where it started), called Daedra Dust is seen on the station - although it is extremely rare, and does not come through The Wet Hole; as Jen’starr does not deal in this narcotic - she does however deal in Daedra Dust Mk II. Epsian-Cannabis Cannabis is, has and probably always will be legal in the EPSI Federation. But it is also incredibly strong and can be used in either traditional methods such as dried and smoked, or cooked with oils in order to be processed and consumed. Or it can be vaporized in specially designed ultra-sonic Cannavape pens. It is usually stronger than Human variants and is not recommended in large amounts for Human consumption. Crystalised Lysergicia Acid Diethylamide (cLSD) cLSD is a tasteless and odourless psychotropic Crystalline Powder, similar to LSD that can be mixed into food, drink and even the air. It is derived from the psychotropic component of an Epsian Fruit known as Zeta Fruit (Discovered on the Cursed Utopian Island) which has been extracted and purified into a crystalised sheet before being crushed and grinded into a fine powder. Despite its name and what its similar to, it isn’t actually Lysergic Acid Diethylamide although the effects are extremely similar, and it is just as non-addictive as LSD. It’s effects on other species is generally positive too and it’s toxicity is so low that most would need to consume around 1 tonne of cLSD in just 15 minutes before a lethal response is triggered, which is obviously impossible. Although in its dried powdered form, it is flammable. It was discovered after several months of laboratory work after Kaylarvara brought it back from her first visit to Utopian Curse. Azafenide Pitoxetine Acycrudin (Jet/Slo-mo) Azafenide Pitoxetine Acycrudin, (Commonly Known As: Jet or SloMo) is made up of two drugs combined with a micro vaporiser, Azafenide which is currently used in the drug called Focusizine and Pitoxetine Acycrudin which is commonly used in the drug Temporaperceptizol. The drug appears to be a psychedelic that slows the users perception of time to 1% of its normal speed, in its purest form. It also makes the user see colours more vividly, and appears to have a euphoric effect. In earlier models of the inhaler, a Jet/Slo-Mo inhaler results in the mouth of the user suffering from freezer burn. It also (as a by-product) prolongs any feelings of pleasure or pain that the user feels at the time of taking it. Azafenide Pitoxetine Acycrudin was developed by Arcadian Soldiers, in 3451 during the EPSI Federation's years. It was developed as a way of increasing a soldier's performance and survivability rating against the Sarzi, but it was never endorsed or condoned for use by the Grand Council of Arcadia, or its State Marshall's. Once it was found out that this epidemic was happening; the drug was immediately illegalised in the Military and soldiers caught taking it were court martialed, and often dishonourably discharged for taking Narcotics whilst enlisted. The drug is extremely addictive; and this was one of the major setbacks that the Military had during this time period. Soldiers that were dishonourably discharged are rumoured to be the reason why it "Breached the Arcadian Barrier" and seeped into the General Public, as they were looking for ways of making money now that they were discharged from the Military and this was an easy, and legal way of doing so. It was marketed on the street as: "like seeing God through the cracks of creation". The creators of the drug claim that it is designed to find moments of beauty and tranquillity in the horrific events of the dystopian time period. Triamnazol Oloparin Diascopolamine (Daedra Dust) Triamnazol Oloparin Diascopolamine, (Commonly Known As: Daedra Dust) is one of the most illegal narcotics in the EPSI Federation due to its effects, and its use. In small doses the drug is fairly psychotropic, especially when combined with other substances. It severely impairs the ability to accurately determine reality for up to twelve hours. After twelve hours, you become non-responsive "Burnt out", and become 'Zombie like', unable to process your surroundings and in most cases suffers suffer from psychotropic effects. After eighteen hours, the user/victim usually falls unconscious (to sleep). When/if the user/victim wakes up, in 99.99% of all cases, they don't remember three hours before the hit, so usually they cannot give a description of the attacker, and maybe hazy as to where they were. Evidence shows up in urine/stool samples for up to three days after the administration of the narcotic, and upto twelve days in blood samples. It is described in following stages: Stage 1:- Ultra submissive, docile state, pliable and able to take orders from anyone who issues them. Complete loss of free will. (0 - 12 hours after the hit) Stage 2:- Zombie like on the outside, unresponsive and non-compliant but still docile, and passive. Psychedelic induced hallucinations, internally. (12 - 18 hours after the hit) Stage 3:- Unconsciousness. (18 - Undetermined/Highly Variable) Stage 4:- Complete memory loss in almost all cases from around three hours before the hit. May feel groggy, run down and lathargy, confusion and general "Coming Down" symptoms. (After waking up) In large doses it causes, usually the victim in a crime, to be completely robbed of their free will and to be ultra compliant. It reduces them to a zombie-like state, in where they will comply with all orders given to them, even to the point of self-termination (Suicide); hence the level of illegality. In higher doses; it can cause respiratory failure and even cardiac arrest which almost certainly results in immediate death, especially if there is no tolerance to the amounts the person is subjected to. It has zero effect on Xeno'vitiri and Xenovityr'ra physiologies, nor anyone who is part Xeno specifically those with bioluminescence from their Xeno hybridisation, as the hormone neutralises the chemical. If they aren't glowing at the time of having it used on them, it may affect them but it can be countered if they start glowing, for example sexual arousal activated glowing. Daedra Dust has none to extremely specific and rare medical uses, and it's primarily only used to subvert people's Universal Rights to Life which is usually criminal. There are a number of ways in which the drug can be administered; it can be ground to fine red and black dust which is both odorless and tasteless to even a Zeta, which means it's next to impossible to detect. From this power it can be either blown into someone's face, mixed into their food or drink, or used to spike other drugs with. It can only be detected by a molecular scanner. Smoking or vaporising the compound destroys it, due to the very high temperatures. Criminality goes hand in hand with this narcotic, it is it's primary use such as: 'Stop and Blow' Attacks - Where someone approaches the victim and blows the dust in their face, rendering control of their free will over to the blower. This affects the person immediately. 'Spike' Attacks - Where the suspect spikes food, drink and/or other narcotics. When digested it can take upto forty minutes to have effect but sometimes it can be as quick as ten minutes depending on various factors. It is extremely uncommon to be mixed with other narcotics that is taken via Nasal inhalation, due to economic factors and it's obvious when the drugs in question have been mixed. Triamnazol Oloparin Diascopolamine comes from three plants, one of which is native only to Xantal’lar, Epsus Prime, Epsus Galaxy. Jen’starr has never and will never deal, trade or supply this narcotic. Even to her: This is a no-go, she will not tolerate its use in her bar either. Oxanophen Alduramine (Daedra Dust Mk II) Oxanophen Alduramine also known as Daedra Dust (Mark II). It is a synthetic compound that was made to replace Daedra Dust, it is cheaper, safer and more legal and was made specifically for those who use Triamnazol Oloparin Diascopolamine recreationally. It isn't completely legal, but it is less illegal than the Original Daedra Dust. It was developed by Temaelrin Eldyrannth and Hanshaerin Eldyrannth, and patented under the ExoSinian Eldyr Corporation and can only be manufactured by corporate licenced pharmaceutical companies, with exception to EPSIMedical who are allowed to manufacture it, but don't generally outside of research purposes. Weapons and Technology Trading Jen’starr will sell weapons through this station, and will even allow for demonstrations of the weapons in a holosuite in her private room, so that buyers can test their weapons out before buying them. There are actual station laws that dictate what she can and can’t do, however. So for personal weapons for “Self Defence” if they want to acquire the weapon legally, they will have a serial numbered weapon that has been manufactured to specifications. That person must also pass a criminal background check otherwise she can’t sell them the weapon in question. If they want to go down the illegal route, she will put them in touch with an EPSIPirate Private Firearms Trader - Off the Station, who will give her a cut of the money - this protects her legally. If it ever came back to her, she would truthfully say that she did not sell them the weapon. For weapons being sold in bulk (Usually to militaries, mercenary groups) well, that depends on the group. If station command needed them for whatever reason, she will come up with them to specification. If it is an outside force (Most likely) she will do the deal and trade off-station in accordance to station law. She makes it abundantly clear that she doesn’t want to know about the details of why they need the weapons, and won’t ask questions; but that would also apply to the enemy that they’re fighting, if they came to her asking to buy and their credits were good, then she’ll sell - she doesn’t give a fuck and doesn’t want your life story, she’ll also say, “What you do with the weapons after you buy them is your business, so don’t make it mine.” Starship Weapons and Planetary Defence Weapons are sold through her by a contact in the EPSIPirates, or any of her arms manufacturing contracts, again she doesn’t want to hear why, if she wants to know anything she’ll ask. All deals will be concluded off-station. If two people want to use the sanctuary of her bar to trade weapons they have to adhere to three rules: Jen’starr gets 6% of the profit, and she will alert you if Law Enforcement comes through the door. The actual changing hands of the weapon is done off-station. No weapons deals involving genocide or biological warfare. What she doesn’t sell is biogenic weapons, bioweapons and anything used in biological warfare, nor does she sell to known genocidalists, or enemies of the EPSI Federation/EPSI Pirates.

  19. This is a species that is within the Andromeda Galaxy, but they are purely an NPC species. No one is allowed to create an individual of this species to RP with them. The purpose of this profile is to allow characters to reference them. It is why most of the fields are deliberately left out, because this is all the intelligence that other species have managed to collect on them which, considering their secretive nature, is not much. However I did include all of the ship designs, even if the Capital and Motherships haven't yet been seen. It just gives an idea as to the extent of their ships and technology. -x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x- Race: Sobani Species Age: Unknown Average individual Age: Unknown Origin/Location: Unknown History: Pre-history: Unknown Modern history: Not much is really known about the Sobani, nor the extent of their territories. They have been impossible to map out, as the Sobani attack the moment ships come within a few Light Year radius of their territory. They often leave no survivors. But for the moment, they seem content to remain in their own territory. Culture: Unknown Communication/Language: Unknown. They often do not speak to outsiders and when they do speak, it is a language that contains a lot of hisses and snarls. Food and Drink: Unknown Sports/games and other pastimes: Unknown Hierarchy: Unknown, theorised to be heavily militaristic. What the race consider as insulting/rude/ shameful: They are disgusted by even the thought of speaking to someone not of their species. What the race consider as Respectful: Unknown. Misconceptions/Myths/legends/Old wives tales: They can seem to sense ships approaching their territory from miles away. Name Style: Unknown, often unpronounceable by most species. General Race Behaviour: Extremely aggressive and hostile. They attack anyone who comes near their territory. Love: Unknown. Religion: Unknown. Laws: Unknown. Rituals: Unknown. Genetic Diseases/ Common Ailments/ Common Mental problems: Unknown. Anatomy and Physical Appearances: General look of the race: They look almost like a combination between an octopus and a nerve cell. They have a strange glowing feature on their chests, that becomes brighter when they speak. Below is the only recorded image of a Sobani ever caught on camera which was found in a homing beacon of a ship that was destroyed by them. Hearing: Unknown Smell: Unknown Eyesight: Unknown Touch: Unknown Feeding: Unknown Organ Function: Unknown Sexual Organs: Unknown Features: They are Aquatic. Mating: Unknown Offspring: Unknown. Abilities/ Powers and weaknesses: Unknown. RP Interaction: Basic Interaction: They are extremely aggressive and hostile. They make no effort to form diplomatic relationships with anyone. They shoot with no warning, and take no prisoners. Fighting: They are relentless and ruthless. They kill without mercy and do not give people the chance to escape. Technology: For the most part, unknown. They are extremely advanced, but it is unclear just how advanced they are. Due to the fact that they an aquatic species, their ships are filled with water. Some have noted from records found from destroyed ships that the Sobani utilise organic technology. While most outside species have only really seen Cruisers and Capital ships, these are the kinds of ships that one would expect when encountering the Sobani: Kamikaze ships: These are automated drones built by the Sobani and stored on most of their larger ships. The larger the ship, the more drones they can store. These drones will swarm enemies and slam into them, causing significant damage especially if a ship has no shields. Cruiser: These are the smallest ships other than the Kamikaze drones. They are quick and are able to easily out-maneuver most ships of a similar, or larger, size. They roughly store about one hundred drones at a time, and often move around in packs. Capital Ship: One of these ships is often accompanied by at least a hundred Cruisers. They are larger, and much slower. What they lack in speed, they make up in power, employing powerful disrupting beam weapons that eat through shields and disintegrate hull plating. They often have a few thousand Kamikaze drones on board. Mothership: The rarest of the ships that the Sobani have, and the number of them that are in service unknown. No one outside of the Sobani has seen one of these ships. They are extremely large, being roughly the size of the Earth Moon and employed a heavy contingent of weapons. It has one extremely powerful weapon that can destroy moons and even planets with one blast. These motherships carry millions of Kamikaze drones.

  23. The creator of that book and summoner of Eddie had been watching the entire time, mind-jobs and all. He had no idea who this fox was or what her deal was but he was not too keen on her running around in Eddie's head, at least not while he was still doing work for him. Although he had no idea what it was she found he certainly recognized her magic. After sitting back for some time Eddie's summoner had figured it was best to try and talk to this "Ren" character while she was still separated from any possible allies. Somewhere underground, though he was unsure of where, sat a beast of man. While his form was nowhere to be seen by Ren his voice reverberated throughout her. Not one person around seemed to pay any mind though and simply continued about their business. "Ehm-! Is this thing on?" Something sounding like glass being tapped on had suddenly surrounded Ren. "You got a moment?"
  24. Heptite Guild Home of the Heptite Crystals; helping innovation throughout the galaxies. The Heptite Guild is a Company, that is under the umbrella of the ExoSinian Eldyr Corporation that operates in the Epsus Galaxy. Despite having a parent corporation, the Mining Guild is quite independant and runs things how they like. They mine special crystals that are used in various pieces of technology. Due to the rarity of the crystals, they are usually quite expensive to purchase. The Guild itself does not sell the crystals. Instead, they are delivered to the Trading Station in the Vestibule of Enlightenment system where they can then he purchased by anyone who has the credits to do so. The system itself is guarded by ExoSinian Corporate Security, with at least six ships at a time on patrol. They do not take kindly to pirates, or those who make any kind of hostile moves towards any of the facilities or workers on the planet or moon base. Thus the main Guild is not easy to attack and pirate. The Heptite Guild is open for individuals to come and apply for membership. They can be quite welcoming, and their hospitality is well known to be good. Now for information regarding the actual planet where the Heptite Guild is location, which will give more information regarding the actual Guild, its History and facilities. Planet Name: Ballybran. Native species: Humans were the first to colonise this planet, however there are many species living there. Solar System: Ballybran is the Fifth planet of the star, Scoria [G type star] which is located in the Regulus II sector, Andromeda Galaxy. Scoria is a star with a high amount of sun-spot activity which contributes to the weather on Ballybran. Planet Statistics: Ballybran has Gravity slightly lower than the galactic norm for human adaptability, a breathable atmosphere, more oceans than land mass, tidal complications caused by three moons, as well as an exotic meteorology stimulated by sunspot activity of the star, Scoria. Atmosphere Makeup: 76% nitrogen, 22% oxygen, a variable amount (average around 1.247%, National Centre for Atmospheric Research) water vapour, 0.93% argon, 0.038% carbon dioxide, and traces of hydrogen, helium, and other "noble" gases. Natural satellites: Ballybran has three natural satellites, Shankill, Shillmore and Shanganaugh. Shankill is the largest of the three moons and is home of the Shankill Moon base. Shanganaugh is the smallest of the three and has an unmanned meteorology station. Shillmore also has a meteorology station, but it is manned by technicians who observe the weather on the planet every hour of everyday. Due to the orbits of these three moons, it causes tidal complications that make navigating the water extremely dangerous. It also contributes to the violent weather seen on Ballybran. When in a particular position around Ballybran, it causes the storms to become extremely violent, even to Ballybran’s standards, a period called “Passover.” Unnatural Satellites: There are 16 satellites orbiting the planet scanning the atmosphere for changes in the systems that influence the weather on Ballybran. Natural and Species History: - Natural history: Little is known about the natural history of Ballybran and how the Crystal Ranges were formed, but it is theorised that the extreme heat and the stress of the three moon’s gravitational pull on the planet forced the crystal to the surface. - Colonisation history: In a routine explore and evaluate search for habitable planets for colonisation, the planets around the sun, Scoria, were scanned. Only one of the planets had a suitable atmosphere and suitable gravity for human habitation. It also gave evidence of crystal and quartz in its inverted ranges. A team was dispatched with a man called Barry Milekey as its leader. The initial findings of the geologists indicated that Ballybran was a planet of immense potential, and samples were rushed back to Sector Research. The first crystal sample to be analysed was a blue porphyry type, proved that, due to peculiarities of its composition, a marvellous optical storage device. It allows computers to have instantaneous access to improbably large volumes of data stored in matrixes of exceptionally small dimensions. For example, the crystals fine grain synapse structure enabled even a 1cm3 piece to store up to 10 Zettabytes of data which is equivalent of 10,737,418,240 Terabytes. It was Milekey's discovery, however, of the so called black quarts, which, under normal circumstances is neither black nor quartz, which led to the complete revolution of interstellar communications. Owing to its thermal characteristics, black crystal is a pigmented rock crystal, is translucent in natural light. Under certain types of magnetic stress, black crystal, for lack of better description, absorbs all light and seems to become matte black in colour, which attributes to its name. Milekey had observed this phenomenon when he chipped the first lump from the black crystal face. Again by accident, while being examined by the crystallographers, the substance's true properties were discovered. If two identical segments of black quartz were subjected to synchronized magnetic induction, a two-way communication link was established between the crystal segments. When investigators increased the distance between the samples, it was discovered that, unlike other electromagnetic phenomena, black quartz eliminated the time lag and allowed for instantaneous communication between the two points in space. Concurrent with the laboratory discoveries and proposed applications of the new crystals, there came the first of several problems to be solved in the mining of this rich source. The first investigation team had only gathered up loose chips of the various types of crystal, or such larger chunks as had already been fractured from the crystal faces. In attempts to cut with ordinary carbon-10 blades, the crystal had shattered. Laser cutters were tried, but they shattered, melted, or damaged the crystal. The habit of one of the crystallographers of singing as he worked led to an unexpected solution. The man noticed that some crystal faces would resonate to his voice, and he suggested the use of a subsonic cutter. Though not completely successful at first, experiments along this line finally produced the sophisticated audio pickup that resonated, amplified, and reduced the required note to set the sub-sonic diamond blade. Once the problem of wrestling unblemished crystals from the face was solved, Ballybran was opened to private miners so that they could make a small fortune selling the crystals to the open market. During the next spate of storms, those miners who heeded the warnings for oncoming storms, promptly retreated from the crystal ranges and reached the sheltered valley sustained no injury. The ones who ignored the warnings were discovered in the storm's wake, either dead or completely mad. Storm winds blowing across the resonant crystal range coaxed enough sonics from the sensitive rock to shatter unprotected minds. Keenly aware of the unexplained deaths of the nine miners, everyone became conscious of previously ignored physical discomforts. The meditechs began filing reports of disorientation, hypo- and hyperthermic spells, erratic sense perceptions, muscular spasm and weakness among the minors and anyone living on the planet. No one in the several base camps escaped the minor ailments. Most of the symptoms passed within a week, but some victims found one sense or another, in most cases hearing, to be affected. The medical team was hastily increased in size to deal with the situation, and everyone was put through exhaustive tests. At first, crystal was suspected of inducing the symptoms. However, those handling the crystal off-planet appeared unharmed by contact, while meteorologists and support technicians who never touched the crystals on Ballybran, were also affected. Crystal was determined not to be the source of the strange ailments affecting the planet inhabitants. The planet's ecology then became the prime target for intensive examination, and this area of investigation proved positive. The spore producing the symptoms was soon isolated, and the planet Ballybran was placed on Code 4 as a preventive measure to prevent anyone from landing on the planet and never being able to leave. The Heptite Guild was established on the planet surface, with a Moon Base being built on Shankill to act as the planet’s landing point. The Heptite Guild was established to help people adapt to the planet and the spore while supporting the Crystal Singers who mined the crystal. Due to the dangers and the fact that many people going down to the planet surface will never leave again, the Heptite Guild is banned from active recruiting. Currently, only Singers are allowed to leave the planet (Providing they mine enough to afford to go off-world). Support staff cannot leave the planet surface as they do not have enough credits to do so. They are also not subject to the same stresses that Crystal Singers go through. The Guild in recent years, was purchased by the ExoSinian Eldyr Corporation who immediately got to work improving the facilities of the Guild to make the mining safer for the miners as well as to make life more comfortable for those that live their life on the planet. They now also provide the system protection, as the Guild was subject to frequent raids by the NRSA. Planet Surface: Ballybran has a lot more ocean to land mass, with a vast majority of the landmass being made up of the crystal ranges over twelve continents. There are some sections of the landmass which is dedicated to research, facility buildings and farming. Ecology: The ecology of Ballybran is Silicon based, and not Carbon based like many planets and species. Plant Life: The local plant life is inedible due to its silicon based ecology. However Carbon based plant life can be grown on the planet. Animal Life: There is little to no animal life on Ballybran. Insect Life: There is little to no insect life on Ballybran. Sea Life: There is little to no Sea life on Ballybran. Microbiological Life: The most known about microbe on Ballybran is the spore, which is a microbial symbiont. This Spore can form a symbiotic "bridge" between carbon based lifeforms and the silicon based life forms of Ballybran as it is a carbon silicate, able to work with both carbon and silicon based life forms. The formation of the bridge is usually metabolically traumatic: a "Transition Sickness," as it is called, however some recruits have a Milekey Transition which shows no symptoms and allows for maximum adaptation. They are also sensitive to black crystal, but such adaptations are extremely rare (Do NOT have your character have a Milekey adaptation unless it is approved by me). The transition sickness can affect the recruits between ten to twenty days since first day on the planet. When they fall ill, they are immediately taken the medical facility to make them as comfortable as possible as their body adapts to the spore. Anyone going through the adaptation will experience a high fever, flashes of hot and cold, severe convulsions, blinding headaches and coughing fits that will leave you exhausted. Many do not remember much while going through the adaptation illness due to their fevered state. Someone who refuses to allow the spore to establish itself risks death, however deaths are rare in the Heptite Guild as their medical staff are fully trained on how to lesson the risk of death. After adaptation, it can take up to twenty weeks for the spore to establish itself properly within the host’s body. Occasionally after passing through the adaptation, one or more senses may be weakened and reduced, but others may be greatly amplified such as a significant improvement in visual acuity, tactile perceptions, nerve conduction and cellular adaptation. Depending on how the spore affects the senses will determine what position the recruit is placed in. The symbiont affects the DNA/RNA pattern of the body; extending the life span considerably (Some can live more than 200 years. In fact some crabs and worms in the research labs are 400 years old) as well as giving the host regeneration abilities and heal much quicker than other humans/species. It also increases tolerance to extreme heat, cold and pain. Some of the side effects that the symbiont has are that the eyes can see into the UV or IR spectrums, with an ability in some to sense magnetic fields. Increased tactile sensitivity (Which has allowed some artistically inclined Singers to produce some of the most treasured art of modern times) is also another effect of the spore adaptation. There is no way to predict what effect the spore will have on any individual. The Symbiont is also an inbuilt warning for whenever there is going to be a mach storm, alerting the host so that it can get out of the ranges and into the safety of the guild. The disadvantage to this is that the older the host, the less likely the symbiont is of warning the Singer as it becomes less effective through age. If the spore does not adapt properly to the carbon based biological system of humans and other species, then death of the host occurs and the body crystallises. Also, when adapted to the spore, it makes the host irreversibly sterile as the genetic code of the host [the parts of the DNA that deal with heredity and propagation] are chemically altered, increasing personal survival traits as opposed to racial survival. If the Singer were to leave the planet, they must return within 400 days [The very maximum they can stay away. It is always recommended to have 250 days away] to allow the spore to recharge otherwise the host will die an unpleasant death as the death occurs from the host aging within a period inversely related to the host’s elapsed life span )As in they age in a very short amount of time. They suffer fever and convulsions before they die). Not long after adapting to the spore, and first cutting crystal, the spore affects the memory of the Singer. It is not long before Singers forget where they come from, who are their friends and family. This can take up to a few decades to affect them. Singers usually keep a log, which is voice restricted so only they can access it. The memory loss occurs more when the Singer is mining crystal. When a Singer has been mining crystal for too long, they get what is called a “Crystal Resonance.” This makes any non-singers (Even support staff on Ballybran) very uncomfortable around the Singer. It can make the body hair for non-singers to stand up on end. This can cause the Singer to become even more irritable and tense. Only going away from Ballybran for an extended period of time can cure this. As well as lots of Radiant Baths. Planet Access: Warning: Unauthorized landing on Ballybran interdicted by Heptite Guild, section 907, code 4, paragraphs 78-90. No ship can land on the planet directly, and will be required to land on the Shankill Moon Base. Applications for consideration of membership to the Heptite Guild requires physical fitness test SG-1, Psychological Profile SG-1, Education level 3 preferred but not required. Perfect and absolute pitch both in perception and reproduction of the tonal quality. Application made only through Heptite Guild office(s): Shankill Moon Base in the Main Reception Facility and the Andromeda One Space Station in the Main Reception Facility. While no longer under the rules of the Earth Alliance, the Heptite Guild require full disclosure of all dangers inherent in profession to prospective candidates once physical, psychological and aptitude tests have been passed to the satisfaction of the Guild Examining Board.. If, after all the dangers of Ballybran have been disclosed, the recruit decides not to go through with the recruitment process, then their memory of what they have been told is wiped and the memory is replaced with one of oversleeping and having a leisurely breakfast. Meteorology: The weather on Ballybran can have the same patterns as planets such as Earth; however there are a couple of exceptions. Mach Storms: Extremely violent storms that have powerful winds that resonate across the crystal in the ranges, causing strong sonics that shatter any unprotected minds and leaves anyone caught in it mad or dead. As the ranges of Ballybran extend downwards, some would think that going down would protect against the storms wrath, however that assumption is incorrect as it traps the person and it will not protect anyone from the sonics created by the wind. Passover: When all three of the moons orbits are briefly synchronised. Along with the stars sunspot activity, this causes extremely violent mach storms where the sonics can penetrate deep underground where all the singers and the support staff live. Any singers that can get off the planet are encouraged to do so; however most do not mine enough crystal to get the required amount of credits to get off world at Passover. Before Passover, the symbiont becomes very demanding, causing the host to become extremely hungry every couple of hours and able to consume huge amounts of food during one eating session. Once Passover begins, the hosts appetite dies down and they ‘hibernate’ throughout the whole Passover, although that alone does not protect the host entirely from the Passover sonics. Political stance: Ballybran is run by the Guild Master who is in charge of the Heptite Guild and deal with all decisions. It is a mining Guild so does not have any political government and deals in the mining and selling of its unique crystal. Urbanisation spread: There is not much urbanisation on Ballybran as the planet’s landmass is mainly crystal ranges. There are, however, farms dedicated to growing Carbon based crops. There are not many buildings on the surface of Ballybran, only going up a few stories, as most of the buildings are dedicated to sled hangers and sorting areas for the crystal. Most of the structures are underground where the singers and support staff live. The higher the rank, the lower down their quarters are. This is because the sonics from Passover mach storms can reach deep under the surface. Protective measures are put in place such as sound mufflers worn over the ears. And for some being placed in radiant baths in the medical facility with hearing cut off just to make them comfortable, however they do not cut out everything. The last measure is usually for new Singers who have done their first cut near Passover. Biomes: Seas and rugged crystal ranges as well as farm lands are the kinds of biomes encountered on the planet. Inhabitants: The Heptite Guild is led by the Guild Master, with Chiefs of all sections coming underneath him. Then the Crystal Singers rank underneath them. There are currently 4,352 Crystal Singers living and mining on Ballybran. There is 20,632 support staff that keep the Singers in the ranges. Recruits: The moment they decide to go through with joining the Guild, they are subject to being charged for any training that they receive. They are charged for the flight down to the planet, the instruction that they receive from their instructor, flight training, accommodation, their first sled and their cutter. They do not have to pay up front, and can work their debt off. It is usually paid off during the first two years of their employment, which, considering how long they will live is not long at all. If there is an incoming storm, recruits will be rallied to help unload the ships and then to help sort the crystal. And then afterwards cleaning the sleds for the Singers to go back out to the ranges. They get paid for the unloading of the crystal, and even danger pay for it due to the dangers involved. They get paid for sorting the crystal and cleaning out the sleds, both subject to a bonus if done quickly. These can help eat away at the debt of their recruitment. The smallest class the Guild will teach is 30 students, so any applicants will have to wait until there are 30 in the class before they will be moved on. When taken down to the planet surface, they are giving a class designation. The designation is the number of which class they are now (For example Class 425 is the 425th class to be taught on the planet). They are shown to a recruits lounge which has enough seating for the class, a catering unit and private sleeping quarters down a corridor, complete with en-suite bathroom. Technology: They have the standard Galactic technology with space ships, Moon base, shuttles, catering units, etc. The Singers each have their own personal flying vehicles, called Sleds. It’s like a shuttle. It contains the pilot’s cockpit, sleeping area, catering area as well as the reinforced storage area that contains the cartons that the crystals are placed. One of the Singers favourite pieces of technology is the baths, which can be found in both recruit and singer quarters, with the Singers baths having more options. The baths can be set for various bath types, including a type called a ‘Radiant’ bath. It is a yellow goo like substance that cleans deeply as well as ease the ache out of very tired muscles. Crystals and Crystal Singing: The crystals are mined from the ranges, from large crystal deposits on the surface. To be mined, a special sonic cutter is required. Each Singer has their own cutter that is made personally for them and cannot be used by anyone else. The cutter works by the Singer singing and tuning the cutter to the tone and pitch that they have set (Like A minor). They then cut the crystal in the desired shape. The crystal is tuned to the note that the Miner Sung (So if they sung an A minor note, then the crystal will become A minor). Crystals that come in sets that fit together are more valuable and bring in more credits, especially if they vary in notes (Like A minor, A Major etcetc). Each Singer ‘Claims’ a place where they mine their crystal, through use of using a special paint painted on the rocks that indicates that there is an active Singer there. Singers are not allowed to jump claims and mine crystal in another’s claim. Doing such a thing is subject to being punished severely. Singers can mark where their claim on the computer of their sled (Providing it is not damaged beyond repair), although the mach storms and Passover can change what the ranges appear so it is not 100% reliable. Although after Singers have cut a claim, they can sense when they are nearby as they are attuned to the crystal. To find a crystal face in the first place, the Singer will need to search in the sunlight since sun warmed crystal create sounds and sing which a Crystal Singer can hear. Crystal can react to the singer if they talk, sing, hum or laugh. It is also easier to cut the crystal in the sunlight as it is easier to see the crystal as well as setting the tune. As soon as they have cut, they must wrap the crystal and place it in the carton. Otherwise the Singer will end up communicating with the crystal for hours on end. When communicating with the crystal, the Singer is unaware of the passage of time. This link can be broken by a cloud passing over the sun or by the sun setting. The sled that they own have many warnings that are both loud and annoying whenever a mach storm is incoming. The best warning that a Singer has is their symbiont as it warns the Singer of a storm hours before the warnings in the sled go off. When they come back to the Guild, their precious load is immediately unloaded by any staff available (Which is a dangerous task if the storm is above them as it makes it dangerous to fly so sleds can crash and the ferocious wind can knock people over). Over the next few days the crystal is sorted and the credits counted for each crystal. What is wanted/needed by the market will determine how much each crystal is worth and therefore what each Singer gets. After the total amount of their crystals is calculated, a 6% tithe is given to the Guild. This is required to keep the support staff paid and also to keep their medical treatment free. When they are fresh from the ranges, Crystal Singers have an extremely short temper and are prone to snapping and irritability. They tend to look gaunt and haggard as they are so involved with mining crystal that they forget to eat. Most also forget to bath. Code 4: Ballybran has several dangers which must be revealed to all hopeful applicants. There are three main dangers to Ballybran. The Mach storms (Passover is included in this), crystallisation through death after a failed adaptation, and death through fireballs: The crystal ranges can build up localized high-voltage and sonic charges near which ordinary comm units do not operate properly, nor do other types of electrical equipment, some of which are necessary to the operation of sleds and conveniences. Fireballs can occur. And, despite all the precautions, a Singer can be volatilized into vapour.
  25. Earth Lore Table of Contents: Intro (You are here) Government Structure Economy Technology Level Territories Current Threats History The year that this Roleplay has been set in is the Earth year of 2536. It is set in the same Universe as Blackberry Falls and Craethiel Kingdom except this is in the future in the timeline. This is a Sci-Fi based Roleplay, where Earth has developed the technology to get into space, and to travel around. They have colonised several worlds, in and out of the Sol System. They even have a foothold in the Andromeda Galaxy by this point with the Andromeda One Station within the system Churchill’s Legacy, which is where the main roleplay is set. The intention of this thread is to inform you, the roleplayer, the basic Lore in regards to Earth such as historic events and important individuals that that you can have your characters correctly reference them. This also prevents inconsistencies between characters who might have several different versions of history. For this Universe, the events placed down in this thread are the correct and established facts. This will also be publicly accessible information within the roleplay so alien characters are able to easily learn the Lore surrounding the Earth Alliance.
