A Galaxy RP (FT, Open sign ups)
The Empire of Gaia, the result of the Third Grand war, the nations of Gaia united to form a mighty empire that conquered many systems, The Empire of Gaia is a ‘True’ Democracy, with everyone voting on everything….Expect military actions and laws. The Empire of Gaia military is the Gaia Defense force, who have saved the empire multiple times from defeat. The Empire has fascist tendencies. But mostly keeps them hiding.The GDF is mostly a peacekeeping force, but is capable of Kicking ass if needed.Currently the empire, is fighting the various rebel groups throughout it’s systems.
Ragon Empire-The Ragon empire is a mighty military and authoritarian empire,founded by Illgoth.They conquered many systems and are always on the hunt for Precursor artifacts, including superweapons.
YIsuta Shogunate-Born from the Clan wars,which ended in Yukage Victory, the Yukage promoted peace and expansion,through that always changes when another clan takes the reigns. You better hope a peaceful clan is in charge when you meet them. They are famed for their use of Power armor, the most current one being the Mk-IV "Ronin" Power armor, which is pressured for space, oxygen, protection, and HUD. Each Clan has it's own colors for it's Power armor,and war cry
Engineer Coalition-The Engineers are peaceful people,and are run by a Harbinger, who is always called Harbinger. Why? Because their names are hard as fuck to say. So they just go by names like Harbinger.
Orks-The Orks are in various clans, you better hope they stay in clans, because when united,they are a force to be reckoned with.
Thresian Empire-The Thresia Empire is the result of a treaty between the Thresian governments of old.They are rather authoritarian, but have some freedoms.
Innies-The Rebel group inside the Empire of Gaia.They want out of the Empire.
Blackwatch-One of the most famous Mercenary groups in the Galaxy, they specialize in security and suppressing rebellions.
The Federation of Trade-The primary merchant faction in the galaxy. They give goods, ships and weapons to all the factions, mainly mercenaries. They also are famous users of Sentinel and Watchmen war droids. Mostly because they are made up of the cowardly Nal Jut race.
Rithian Republic-Trying to be unlike the Rithian governments of old, they are peace promoting, democratic and non-oppressive
Imperial Remnant-After the Rithian civil war,which saw the end of the Rith Empire.The Rith Empire was split into loosely unified warlords. They mostly do there own thing, such as pirating, and trying to reclaim the Empire from the Rithian Republic
Precursors-The oldest and most technological advanced race in the galaxy....And almost nil know they exist, and those that do, are sworn by their life to not tell.[/spoiler]
Humans-I think you know them enough.But I may say one thing, they are considered the sleeping giant of the Galaxy,even by the mighty Yste.Why?Because during peace, they have a rather small military,and promote diplomacy instead of war. But when you mess with them.Run and fast.They can turn their small military into aGinormous one, just at the snap of a finger. And when the wars done,they go back to a peaceful race, with a small military. Keeping the rest in reserve. The other races can’t wrap their heads around it.Oh, and you do not trifle with a Human Titian.
Yisuta-Space Samurai Bears. They are brutally honest, and honorable warriors. Their poetry about war is famous through the galaxy, and their leader, Yawr is said to be one of the wisest man/bear in the galaxy.Yste are much like their Gaia cousins, but instead walk on two feet, and have two arms were their forelegs would be.They have paws, which allows them to grab objects,but lack oppositional thumbs, the Yste reproduce sexually. Yste are considered one of the best writers in thegalaxy.There poems about war, conquest and death are popular with any race, including the Ragon.The Yste where discovered by the GDF ten years after the War against the Ragon. (About 2249) They soon became great allies.The Yste are ruled by a Shogun .
Ragon-Spartans in Space! The Ragon are the exact opposite of the Yisuta. Unlike the Yisuta who will let a defeated opponent go to live another day, and give defeated races a chose to join their Empire, the Ragon will kill them, rape their women, and then enslave them.All the Ragon care about is war. And lots of it. As toy can tell, the Ragon are a bunch of assholes, who battle cry is curses, and death threats.The Ragon hate I repeat hate Humans, but can stand pretty much every race besides Humans and the Engineers .They mostly hate the Humans and Enginner for that is who they are.That and there culture says that War is the only thing keeping the Star father from coming back.
Engineers- Space Atheist-Basically a race of energy beings inside living metal, that can be shaped and altered to the will of the entity within, hence a natural ability with something like shapeshifting and the like, even being able to resemble biological beings in pretty much every way but actually being made of substances that constitute something or than living metal. Very little is known about the origins of this race of pure energy. Cursed to spend their lives trapped in living metal containers, they nevertheless praise their unknown creators, though in truth, few know how they really came to be, and thus, the legends of their creation are many and varied. This includes myths that say they were once a fully biological species that was wiped out on another world an extremely long time ago, and were perhaps converted by themselves, or by the race(s) or beings that wiped them out, into the form that they are now. Engineer possess extremely advanced technology. They are even able to create artificial wormholes, and this knowledge is coveted by the Orks(a rival race) and is one of the reasons the two races are in conflict. Most Engineer consider themselves to be peaceful and are only interested in the pursuit of knowledge, though there are a few that deviate from this. They do, however, realize that they live in a hostile universe and must, therefore, protect themselves. While usually Engineer are unified, there have been disagreements regarding the war with the Mantis: some believe that peace should be made at any cost, including handing over the artificial wormhole technology to the Ork ; others claim that the Orks cannot be allowed to get their hands on the technology, as it could allow the enemy to bypass the static wormhole network and strike at the very heart of Engineerspace.
To a human eye, Engineer ships look like giant creatures of the sea. Their graceful, nearly transparent looks hide deadly weapons and defenses, which they do not hesitate to use when threatened. The most awe-inspiring ship - the Monolith, ensures that most enemy ships do not survive an encounter with the Engineer fleet. Because the Engineer are by nature mostly a peaceful race, most of their ships (Except the Trireme and Monolith) are not well-suited for close-combat, instead possessing better range and supply. Furthermore, the Engineer possess very powerful and diverse static defensive weapons structures.- created by Videssos, with afew edits made by me.
Orks-Da Orks are tha best!-The Orks are a ancient race of warlike Humaniods, through unlike the Ragon they do it because of instinct, not culture. The orks are an ancient race, said to be created by the precursors, as cannon fodder for battle. Of course the Orks rebelled, and fought a never ending war with the Precursors .The war ended eons ago, with the Orks coming out as victors driving the Prescursors to extinction. Well most of them.*Smirk*
Thresia-Romans in Space!=The Thresia are a cunning and cockey race.They where the police of the Galaxy, going on ‘Peacekeeping’ missions, but now they do it with the Yste, and Humans.Even they are mighty warriors,they will not dare fight them.
Nal Jut-A cowardly race of traders and merchants, they are not brave, and thus do not make great fighters. They normally give slaves to the Ragon and Thresia for their gladiatorial fights, and other goods to the others. There kingdom surrendered to the Thresia 2134 CE, do to the Nal Jutta military being non-existent, and no there was no mercenaries crazy enough to fight them.

President Cain-The President of the Empire of Gaia and supreme commander of the GDF during the war against the Ragon. Cain is a controversial figure in the Empire,do not let his many statues in the capital of the Empire, Eypra fool you. He is controversial for his various tactical decisions during the war, such as letting the most powerful ship in the Human navy at the time, The Ydin class Dreadnought, the Ydin stay at Gaia to protect it, and letting the planet of Plutil die, his excuse?
"We need every able body men and women to defend Gaia, a small planet that can barely hold 10 million is not suitable for our survival as a species"
He also didn’t take the Ragon threat seriously enough at first, thinking they were just pirates. It took the fall of Alpha nine for him to declare a state of war. He then enacted the forticaction act, conscripting all able bodied men into the military. He also took pretty much all the food off the small world of Yutu, to prepare for the siege of Gaia. That and the Ragon were about to attack. In the end, the Humans won the war,but Cain developed a severe case of alcohol and drug dependency,became ever depressed , and then committed suicide.Why?
