Re: A roleplay?

Apologies for double-post, I'm gonna let Romulan Republic put something up, so I don't carry it too far forward too fast. Give any new arrivals a chance to get synched up before the shooting starts!

Re: A roleplay?

I'd go with one to one and a half kilometers for the Acheron, and it's the largest and most powerful individual ship in the pirate force. The rest are cruisers, destroyers, frigates, and raiders, armed with older-style nuclear-tipped torpedoes, railguns, and the previous generation of energy weapons...

Re: A roleplay?

The Acheron's an old assault carrier that was decommissioned and sold following the last big round of interstellar wars, so fairly big. Not as big as your Eternal Freedom, I'd say. I'd like to hold off on engaging it directly, at least at first, until we've reduced the number of escorts it has, and ...

Re: A roleplay?

You'll need firepower and clever tactics to take them on. The Acheron may be of a dated design, and you could surely take it on one-on-one, but with all the escorts it has, you'll get pulverized trying. Gotta thin the herd first, as it were. Individually, though, the pirate ships are even weaker tha...

Re: [COLLABORATIVE STORY] Solar Skirmish, a space battle

Aboard the Sword of Vengeance , a somber conversation was playing out between Admiral Turcotte and Star Marshal Dean, aboard Solarian Skywatch, via subspace ansible. “A full review of Central’s defense strategy is underway,” the Star Marshal was telling him, “but your priority is driving back or des...

Re: [COLLABORATIVE STORY] Solar Skirmish, a space battle

Breathe. The background hubbub of the ship’s gym dropped away, and Stardust’s perception seemed to become hyper-aware of his surroundings: The steady whoosh of a group of the battlecruiser’s Nahydran fighter pilots, practicing flying in a full G, holding on to supports to keep from slamming into th...

Re: A roleplay?

Something with that Firefly-like feel to it, with the crew of some small freighter or transport, would be an interesting twist, to see how events might affect people who really don't care about the outcome one way or another, they just want to get through the day, make a couple bucks, and not get ki...

Re: A roleplay?

That works. Oh, and an idea for your epic fleet brawl idea: in 40K, the Tyranid Hive Fleets seen so far are implied to be merely the advance guard for a much larger and more powerful main body that's still traversing the intergalactic void. Have them encounter a jump point leading to Central (but s...

Re: A roleplay?

I feel like there should be some canon backstory for how Central was discovered, who discovered it, what brought about this merging of the multi-verse (though not necessarily everyone discovered it at the same time). You can invent something if you like, I have no real prerequisites - I figure it's...

Re: A roleplay?

How I'm going to start is by having my characters get contacted and retasked from whatever they were doing to investigate the scale and scope of the threat, negotiate and nullify by whatever means are available. And yes, it's implied that all "factions" are aware of all other "factions'" existence, ...

Re: A roleplay?

Oh that sounds interesting! Bring that one! And for the fleet brawl I have in mind, bring all of them! The Sword, on my part, isn't nearly that big. Just a hair over half a mile, but it represents the culmination of research and development by four separate races, humans included, to design and buil...

Re: A roleplay?

@Rom: One large ship, total; and seeing how smugglers would react to a pirate blockade would be interesting!

@Eternal_Freedom: Tell me more about this battleship from your own mind! I am curious!

I've also started a thread, feel free to check it out.

Perhaps for the sake of argument we could scale them down to something comparable to everything else. Hypothetically speaking. Thoughts?

Re: A roleplay?

A fair point. Personally, as the UNSC Infinity is the only ship that was built (far as I know, from what I've seen and read) I'd classify it as a titan. On the Star Wars side, I'd say a fairly standard Imperial-class star destroyer would be the upper limit to run with. I'm not as familiar with WH40k...

Re: [COLLABORATIVE STORY] Solar Skirmish, a space battle

I'll be using my own OC to start, Admiral David "Stardust" Turcotte; the ship I'll be using is here - http://high-guard.deviantart.com/art/The-Sword-of-Vengeance-135472992 Stardust and the executive officer, a Nahydran warrior named Kai'a Sovv, are here. http://suthnmeh.deviantart.com/art/Hellfire-2...
