  1. Potential Changes?

    Well right now it's stalled out with no real answer as to when it will resume. I personally want to just restart it but that's a personal thing as I just don't have the time it takes to play pirate effectively. But if we do resume the current round then you could probably join, we have had a few people quit so you could take their place, but that's something you would need to ask Curu about if we start again.
  2. Potential Changes?

    I don't think we should really increase system count, I think we have enough systems where people can grow enough but still have some conflict over systems which is really needed. If you make the map too big nobody will ever bother with eachother since everyone can get so many systems without the need to fight or share a system. So a big issue I see with just making one mining station is the fact that right now it does not fit the mechanics of the overall RP, in round 1 that would have worked, but now that the RP is WAY more planatary based than system based it would not really work. You can already see multiple people having mines in the same system, it lets people share, or just steal mining locations. Also I believe the investment into mines is a good thing, it should not be as simple as "build 1 outpost, done" then everyone would be done in like 10 turns. I personally think the current mining setup works. However saying that I do 100% agree with you that mineral types need a purpose, right now it's just different money values, but I think you could have all the mines produce the same amount, but then have an exchange rate for mineral types, so basically you would mine the minerals, then you would get to choose to either exchange all or part of it for cash, and/or use the rest to build things. And yeah, I bet you see where I am going, building stuff would require certain minerals. At this point it would be a balancing act to balance minerals and money, you could exchange them all and get all the money, or exchange very little and be very mineral rich which could allow more diversity. Some players would be known for selling bulk minerals, other players would be known for just buying all the minerals they need. War would mean more, you would need to start to stockpile minerals ahead of time, and if you go around buying lots of "military minerals" (yes I think they should be classed like that, certain minerals are mainly used for different things) people could catch on that you are planning something. The main issue I see with this system is the burden it puts on Curu. Curu would need to track minerals, make sure you have enough to build what you want to build, make sure you are not trying to cheat the system, and deal with tons of trades and exchanges and track all of that as well. This would be a massive change to the RP at the core level. Honestly I think if we start doing big interesting yet time consuming systems like this we will need another sub-GM to perhaps only deal with things like this, they would monitor people and correct any mistakes they might make for them, they would handle all the mineral shit (exchange requests, trades, ect.) and could handle any of the other smaller stuff Curu does not mind letting them do. But of course this comes down to if Curu would even be willing to let someone do that, and who would actually do it because I would be happy to do it, but I also really like being involved in the RP and you can't really do both.
  3. So I have wanted to make a post to discuss what we think could be changed, added, or removed in order to make the RP better in any way. I used to have a few ideas but I have forgotten most of them so I will just go over two of my biggest issues I see currently. 1. The NPCs need to be nerfed. It is simply unexcusable to me that an NPC is currently (and in past rounds, all of them actually) are one of the best factions in the game, this should NEVER happen. I know why this happens, people don't see them as the threat they should and trade everything with them and never do anything to stop them. This along with the fact that the NPCs simply play smarter than most of the normal players seem to play is another issue here. This is a fairly easy thing to adjust imo, if the majority of the players are not playing as well as you are having the NPCs play, then play them worse. I know it sounds stupid but the NPCs should not be at the top of most of the charts, and if the issue is people giving them everything than just limit what they can take. Having NPCs be better than most players ruins shit imo, I don't particularly enjoy fighting them, I would much rather fight normal players since there is way more options for stuff there. When I lost my entire fleet to them one turn I hardly even gave a crap because they were just an NPC and I know I would get no reaction from them. I understand the reason NPCs are here, it gives curu a way to be involved and gives us another faction to fool around with....Unfortunatly that's simply not how it works out most of the time, people simply use them to sell all their tech to, and to buy everything they need, people hardly ever check them as they expand like a fucking plague in certain areas taking over entire systems with no resistance at all, because for some reason people don't see them as a threat. Basically this comes down to me feeling frustrated that they always do so well, and I don't think they should do so well, they need to match the players, and they should be a mid-level faction, not one of the most powerful almost every round, this game should be about players, not NPCs. Pls nerf. 2. We need more to encourage people to actually do shit together, be it good or bad. The majority of players are simply sitting around doing almost nothing with eachother, it's like they are playing a single player game in what is actually an MMO (which is funny since I do that all the time) and I think it's because they have no reason to mingle with other people outside of war. Trading could have helped here but from what I can see it does not seem to get much use. Basically we need another system to somewhat force people to interact with eachother. I don't know the best way to go about doing this however, but maybe something like a random event that requires more than one player to solve easily, like a plague on a border world that if they factions don't deal with could spread to both factions systems. That example has a lot of issues since it would leave them open to attack unfairly since it's random but I think some kind of random events might be needed in general since it would give people a push to do more. I am sure I will come up with more, and please don't get angry at me if I point out flaws in any ideas you come up with, you are more than free to do the same for me. Also try not to come up with massive changes that would cause curu to do more work than he already does lol. Like I think my random events thing would be fairly easy on him as an example.
  4. We need more of this kind of stuff, it's neat.

  6. The Fallen are seeking new technological advances. If you have any fancy (or not so fancy) tech and you need some extra spending money (and/or information on that enemy you hate) contact us! We are even willing to use the tech you supply us with as payment on a contract to leave you alone for a while, the better the tech, the longer the contract! If this seems even remotely like something you would be interested in contact a Fallen representative today!
  7. The Fallen are introducing a new service to the galaxy! We now offer a detection contract, what does this entail you ask? Glad you asked, when you enter into a detection contract you will be charged based on the number of systems and importance of the systems you wish to get our detection checks in. We offer a faction space bundle which would get you detection checks for all of your controlled territory. This is a great way to see what we see in your systems. It's an even better way to see what your neighbor has flying around since yes, you can buy detection contracts for other peoples systems as well! Remember, we are watching, and you can see what we see, for a price...

    Best race right here!
  9. As the many great factions of our time expand we watch, examine, do some math, and see how much you all are worth. You might ask yourself "then what" well I will tell you, we then charge you more for our non-interference since we could be making more off you than when we initially started our contracts, it's very simple and understandable yes? I am glad you all agree because we will be increasing rates very soon. Those of you who refuse the new rates are of course open to negotiate with us, however should that fail we will make our money off you in other ways, I hope you understand, we have children to feed, yes even pirates have children you monster! So please, think of the children and just agree. And to those of you not paying us, please think on it, it's great. P.S. BUILD SOME FUCKING MINES PEOPLE JESUS!
  10. The Fallen can help YOU in so many ways. Do you hate how we keep harassing you over and over, stealing your precious resources and destroying your precious ships, well we can help with that. For a small negotiable fee we can actually stop harassing you! We know, it's crazy but so true! Do you have a neighbor you just can't seem to see eye to eye on (not us of course) but can't directly do anything for fear of war? We can help with that. For a small negotiable fee we can actually go over there and harass them for you! They won't even know you sent us, and they will be too busy dealing with us so you can get on with your own lives. Do you wish you just had more ships to watch your systems for enemies? You guessed it, we can also help with this! For a fee, we can actually take it upon ourselves to police your systems and keep all those untrustworthy outsiders outside your systems. Last but not least who does not like a little espionage in the evening. For a fee we can get you all kinds of information, or even do some real damage to those guys you just can't seem to like no matter how hard you try. Need a more specific job done not listed here, no problem! Just contact your nearest Fallen representative hidden fees and charges may apply Thank you for you time, and remember, The Fallen are here to help, and we value equality above all else unless your a giant spider in which case please go die in a fire, catgirls get preferential treatment
  11. The Fallen

    History The Fallen are made up of former angels of heaven, they once oversaw and protected the balance of the universe and beyond. However they have since fallen from heavens grace due to increasing corruption of their hearts; greed, lust, jealously, power, and even love had corrupted them in the eyes of God. Angels were known as the "Soldiers of Heaven" and were meant to be absolutely pure and free of all emotion, this all changed when the first fall happened and ever since corruption has taken root in heaven and every so often corrupts angels beyond redemption and they then "fall" from heaven, hence the name "The Fallen". Leader and his story The leader of The Fallen is none other than the one who was once called "Heavens Spear", the Archangel Uriel. Uriel was once one of the few generals or as they are more often known as, Archangels of heaven. Uriel's fall from grace came about after he fell in love with a human named Destiny. Angels were not allowed to truly love, it would corrupt them in the eyes of God. Uriel refused God's command to cease all contact with humankind and instead told the human he loved about who, and what, he really was. This however was a grave mistake, as soon as he did this God's wrath came upon them both, stripping Uriel of his divinity but granting him immortality and placing a type of curse onto the one he revealed his secrets to. The curse was simple, Destiny would become immortal alongside Uriel but at the same time she would have all of her emotions stripped from her as long as she remained with Uriel. Without her emotions she was incapable of truly loving Uriel. The curse was booth good and evil at the same time, the one he loved enough to defy God would be able to stay with him forever, but as long as they stayed together she would never experience any emotions, most importantly she would not experience love, the love between them was shattered. Because Destiny retained her memories of loving him she refused to leave Uriel, she was now driven not by emotions, but by logic, and logically it made sense to stay with the one she knew truly loved her and would protect her, even if she was now incapable of loving him in return. They remain together to this day, Uriel never stopped loving Destiny and let her do as she wished and stayed with him and he still searches for a way to restore her emotions to this day. Now Uriel controls The Fallen, a faction of all those who followed in his footsteps and fell to human emotions, whether they be love, or pure hatred, he lets his people do as they desire, to a point. Characteristics The only thing that differs between a fallen angel and a normal human are the black wings they posses. Angels were said to have pure white wings, but after an angel falls from grace they become pure black to signify their corruption. While most species see The Fallen as a dark and evil force in the universe this is not entirely true, there are many kinds of fallen angels within the faction and all are driven by the emotions that corrupted them; some will love, some will hate, some will lie, some will be honest, some will kill without a second thought, some will try and save who they can, some can be reasoned with, but many cannot... There are only two things that all fallen truly see eye to eye on, Uriel's strength, and that betrayal is unacceptable. This hatred of betrayal was born from the fact that they all feel betrayed by their father, God, for throwing them out of heaven and therefore any who betray them will forever feel their wrath. Power of The Fallen Although after falling from grace they lose their divinity and thus all power they once held, Uriel is said to still posses a fragment of his power and uses it to enforce his will onto his disobedient followers from time to time. Many believe this is due to the fact that he was not an ordinary angel, but an Archangel, but nobody truly knows.

  14. Drow Safety Procedures

    Drow Safety Procedures These procedures were created so you don't die when interacting with us in any way. 1. If you wish to seek passage through our territory....Don't, unless you think we like you, then try, but be prepared to pay for it because as they say, nothing in life is free, and if you want your life to continue, you will pay. 2. If you are thinking about entering our territory without proper authorization, we advise against it. Our military has strict orders to destroy any unauthorized vessel detected within our systems. There will be no warning! 3. If you believe you have the ownership rights to a system the Drow currently occupy, feel free to contact us about it. However, if you are detected attempting to set up any kinds of infrastructural before negotiations conclude (or if you never start negotiations) it will be seized and/or destroyed without warning. Please keep in mind this is not meant as an act of war, simply us enforcing our territorial rights. 4. When speaking with the Drow refrain from acting superior, because you are not superior to the Drow and acting as such will only incur our anger. 5. If at any point in time you wish to surrender your freedoms to the Drow, feel free to do so. Our slave races are treated very well so long as they obey. And of course you will be under our protection, and all this costs is your worthless freedom. Join us, we know what's best for you! These procedures are brought to you by our Blessed Queen Amalatar

    The biggest part of this is the purchase calc, it just makes life better if you don't already use one. I ripped most of my other sheets off this so some of it no longer works (like the finance stuff) but the purchase calc still works fine. It does not have every unit, so you might want to add the ones you want, it's not hard to do once you understand how it works. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/19DSiuRbk4f5M94KMWY3zH8ATQpeElwi14Gv86420VC0/edit?usp=sharing
