Faction - The Crusaders of Ios
The Crusaders of Ios
A little known sect of the Church of Ios, a holdover from the days of the Antarean Empire (and still practiced on over a hundred worlds), known as the Crusaders of Ios was founded on the planet of Laguna, in Aphis star-system, by religious fanatic Trentis Golsheim in the early of the Antarean Empire. Considered radical even for their time, the Crusaders held the Emperor to be a prophet sent to the Antarean people to lead them to galactic conquest. Over time, the Crusaders exported their views throughout the Antarean Empire.
The Crusaders of Ios is a fundamentalist religious group believing that the Emperor is a profit sent to lead the Antarean people to galactic conquest. Their power has always been variable, for a while, during the end of the Antarean Federation, using secret funding, the Crusaders came to their highest point of power. Claiming millions of followers to their name since the days of the First Antarean Empire the Crusaders are a powerful shado
Eternal Life"Of course, it's a bit of a fixer upper." Jack pulled the rusty front door of the house open to reveal a somewhat tattered but very large front hall. The rug was in tatters, the rotten parts clearly having been recently cut off, and the black drapes were shredded almost beyond recognition, light shining through the holes in the center. "Best of all, the owners are practically willing to sell it to us for a song. Apparently the properties been around but un-lived-in for so long the people from the town think it's haunted. It's pretty ridiculous, but it would need a lot of work, the pipes –"
Cindy, her hand hooked in Jack's arm, listened to her fiancé rattle on about the different things they'd need to fix and how inexpensive it would be to fix them, as they looked around the house as they passed through the different parts. With the exception of that front hallway most of the interior decorations seemed to be in pretty good condition. But they were all so old, dusty books on shelves, ro
Tutorial : Writing ExercisesCharacter Loop
Create a character (or you can do this to a character you have previously created) and write the following information on them:
--What you (the narrator) thinks of them.
--The large distinctive things they do
--The small distinctive things they do
--Their Normal setting
--An object you would often see them with
--Some dialogue that they would say.
After you write these things up separately combine them all into one piece. The goal is to have a very descriptive piece that holds the essence of the character when you're done.
Take some time sitting down in a location and write a short piece about it. The goal is to include the essence of the place. Remember to include colors, how you feel, sounds and sights. Should be about a page.
Similar to the character loop but instead concentrate heavily on the physical description of a character. Try writing a page on just the physical appearance
Faction - Solesian Hegemony
The Solesian Hegemony
Originally a utopian democracy, the Solesian Hegemony became a Dictatorship when the First Antarean Empire interfered with its government. Since then, over the period of the Colony Wars and after the collapse of the first ASE, the Solesian Hegemony gained and lost ground, expanding their empire slowly and by a relatively small amount. The current incarnation of the Hegemony is a tightly knit, honor bound people, with an extreme martial focus. Adapt with computer systems, but less well versed in physical construction, the Hegemony is a poor nation, with what little extra resources it has being pored into their extremely eager, if somewhat under gunned, military.
The political structure of the Hegemony is based around it's social structure. A person's political position is based on a variety of factors. There is a strict structure of houses, ranking from the Greater houses to Middle, to Lesser, with each category subdivided within i
Bio - Sivon
Affiliation: [2nd] Antarean Space Empire (ASE) Ministry of Vox Dei (MVD)
Sivon, the latest addition to a family of Antarean Intelligence agents, was born on Antares Alpha at a very inconvenient time. The Old Antarean Empire had fallen to the ULP decades earlier and the Deus Facilitators of the MVD, the most hated agents of the old guard, had, at the time of it's destruction, been scattered to the winds as the rabble-rousers began to take their tight knit ULP allied groups and turn them into the beginnings of the [2nd] Antarean Federation. Sivon's grandfather [name classified] was forced, without any legal identity or means of support, into the streets. There he became nothing more then a petty crook with dreams of an old Empire. Sivon's father [name classified] continued in this vein, still harboring the hope of a return of the Empire passed down to him. When he discovered that Sivon was to be born he gave the mother [name unknown] a stringent command. Th
FTS -XI- The Ledge
Location: Perguaine (Sub-District Capital), Laula System, ULP District 6, Sub-District 13
Sivon stood before Sub-District headquarters. They had doubtless been grand once, when this planet was the leading edge of an expanding League frontier and not the last fragile hold out on a contracting border. The terraforming had not quite been completed and the air was slightly more corrosive then Earth norm, a factor the settlers hadn't thought they had to worry about when they began construction of the headquarters nearly twenty-five years ago. It was obvious that the colonists had high hopes for their little frontier colony on Perguaine, it could be seen in the very architecture of the place, if you could see past the crumbling walls. The building's front was a study in classic architecture, huge columns supporting the top of a high entrance. The door was an open hole in the wall rimmed by what had once been ornately carved stone. The most spectacular part of the building, even in it
Cobache Class Descrip.
Command and Battlefield Control Exoskeleton (AIA Bipedal Light) – (CoBaCE –) Cobache Class aka "The Red-Eye"
The Red-Eye was created by AIA technicians after it was discovered how many loose Drones were left on a battlefield, and how often retreating troops had a negligible amount of cover. The Red-Eye, created to reinforce the power of one man on the battlefield (due to the lack of manpower in the AIA) was designed in order to combat both those problems.
The Red-Eye is usually deployed in back-up scenarios, a Red-Eye suit (and one or two small drones) is often included in the AIA's APTUs and when the transport is loading or offloading troops one of these is deployed in order to cover the infantry. However, in order to deal with a number of Enemy Light Units on the field, the AIA has been deploying these units in heavy infantry situations, along with extra drones, in increasing frequency.
The Red-Eye is only slightly larger then the man inside.
Simple Structure Ground Combat Mech (ULA Bipedal Light)– Jorn-Class
The Jorn is one of the most versatile weapons in the ULP arsenal. Designed as a purely ground based Mech it is much smaller then spaced base mechs and is far more stripped down. However, it is highly effective and, when partnered with a Trinity class transport, is extremely easy to deploy. These mechs are the ULP's answer to the drone swarms that the ASE deploys in a consistent and regular manner. This is a light flexible unit easily usable in mutable situations.
The Jorn is deployed via the Trinity configuration of the Dragoon. They tend to be released into the battle field from a good height where they fall into the battlefield fully active and ready to fight. They are only deployed on the ground and do not have the support equipment to work in space.
The Jorn is based around two principles, shock absorption and movement speed. Out of all the mechs in the ULP arsenal this is t

Marius Lucan Andromodeus XVI
Homeworld: [Codename:] ImperialNest III
Affiliation: [2nd] Antarean Space Empire (ASE) - Founder
Born: 957 AE
Bio: In the year 861 AE, during the Unification War, the United Space Navy destroyed the Worldship Gatarna. They thought that the entire Andromedeus clan had perished in the conflagration. However, Emperor Lucan Andromodeus III's immediate family and pregnant daughter escape the dying ship in special pods along with a small number of the Custodia, the Empire's special military unit tasked with protecting the Imperial family. The instant they left the system, contingency plans went into place. Realizing that the Empire would now fall, the Custodia left the core planets in order to find a sanctuary where they could hide from the ULP. There, both the Custodia and the Imperial family set up a base and a life. The base's location would change twice more during the time they were in hiding. In 957 AE, in their third base, Marius Lucan Andr
