All right anyone confused by ship classes, here you go:

Carrier: The largest ship class it's main purpose is to carry fighters and bombers, carriers are the backbone of the fleet.

Cruisers: Are designed to take on other capital ships, the Corsair is a cruiser

Destroyers: Smaller versions of cruisers less armed but faster more maneuverable usually act as escort ships

Frigate: Support ships usually acting as escorts for larger ships or used as patrol craft.

Corvette: More of a scoutship Corvettes are the smallest capital ship

Fighters/bombers/shuttles etc. Self explanitory.

How Vixen got certified for space combat is beyond me, given the woman's propensity for feinting.

Well she only does the fainting after going through several levels of hell whether it be emotional trauma, physical combat mixed in with life or death actions, etc. Even then she's polite enough to wait till after taking a combination of all which would leave any three individuals in a fetal position to do so :P.

And also about a year, I couldn't have done it without you players who didn't give up on me.

All right yay celebrations! :huh: Treker don't smash the furniture. :(

I'll post a few things about the RP in retrospect in due time.

And I might as well ask which was ya'lls favorite parts?

The characters were fun, I liked some of the NPCs. im slso rather proud that I gave Vixen some good depth worthy of an RP lasting this long.. That little scrapper earned some real cred during alot of these jobs. She earned her Remington name.

On that note:

Following the wars close all GEs were exiled and qurantiened to shiptrap planet, their actions resulted in far too much collateral damage for the peoples liking, similarly all genetic engineering programs were shut down and deemed a barbaric practice.


Except, of course, for one little baby Sh'ra we all know and love :huh:.

Been lots of fun, guys. I'd like to thank Merc for giving me the opportunity to join in all those months ago. It was interesting to see how a random, generic space marine became so intertwined with the story.

Great story to participate in and it was a load of fun. Cheers!

(Gotta love good ole' Clarence!)

Glad everyone enjoyed it now for a few production notes:

Storyline: Originally I didn't really have a storyline just a few mission ideas and as the RP went along and characters developed everyone contributed to something of a series of storylines all entertwined, props to all of you.

Characters: Good Guys:

Riddler: when he started out he was just a cold, bitter man with nothing but vengeance to live for, as the RP went along he softened up and we see that he's really a rather tormented soul, Clarence and Shmirdra help him find something to live for other than hatred, and he ends up becoming more of a likable person, seeing him trying to hide how he really feels about Shmirdra from everyone was fun especially since he failed miserably at it.

Shmirdra: Originally she was just going to be another of Kosh's lackeys but after kev said she seemed like a good person got me thinking, what if she was a good person who made some bad choices? I then came up with the idea that she and Riddler were once friends that were seperated, my original plan was to have her take over when Kosh was killed but Vixen was so persistent I went ahead and had her defect, plus it got me thinking that Riddler really couldn't take any more misfortune and finding out his bet friend was a pirate would probably tip him over the edge.

Shmirdra ended up developing in an interesting character, she's fierce to enemies and kind to those she cares about, her experiences as a pirate taught her useful skills which she now uses for good, and we see that she and Riddler are a bit closer than just friends, I thought their relationship with each other was so fascinating that I'm currrently writing about their lives prior to the events of Starfire, if any of you haven't seen it yet the first chapter is here:
http://www.fictionpr...and_bShmirdra_b

Red: The Daedalian hunting guide ended up being a pretty good character, she is the best tracker on the planet and had a secret of he rown, she was of the Daedalian royal family which is why she had Red fur. She came off as somewhat gruff but had a good heart under all the gruffness, I might try and work her in the sequel.

Sharean: A Rhysellen originally she was out to snatch people to sell into slavery but she didn't have the heart for it and ended up joining the good guys, her and Charles seemed to hit it off.

Bad Guys:

Kosh: Oh god this guy was scary, essentially a bipedal Sabretooth we see that his cruelty knows no bounds, being a spacepirate for 20+ years he's amassed a large crew and his reputation is well known throughout the galaxy, we find out from Shmirdra how cruel he is by her accounts of him teaching a lesson in discipline to his first mate. Kosh was a complete monster with no redeemable qualities and seemed to maintain an almost hypnotic control over his crew, his species and origin is still a mystery.

Steel: Kosh's first mate I have no idea what Kosh did to him but he was terrified of failing his captain again, the scars on his face were done by Kosh when he failed to obey orders.

Zaerdra: A nasty daedalian pirate who took Steel's place as first mate when he died, when Kosh kidnapped Riddler she seemed to delight in tormenting him and tried to get him to beg for extra water, I don't know what her relationship with Hix was but she seemed to want to control every aspect of his life, curiously she seemed concerned when hix was killed

Hix: A human with a mechanicle hand a deserter from the fleet and an alcholic Hix seems to be regarded as a joke by the other pirates, Zaerdra seem to like to boss him around in particular and the two seemed to have something going on. Originally I was going to have him and Zaerdra be the good guys wanting to leave the crew but that became Shmirdra and these two fit better as villains

The Doctor: Kosh's doctor was a pervert who likely lost his medical position for taking advantage of a patient, Shmirdra killed him with a disrupter.

Trace: The head slave trader a centaur like alien with a love for money, he views slaves as merchandise and see's nothing wrong with enslaving people, he currently resides in prison with no money.

The Sh'ra: Our main foes raptor like aliens they view other races as inferior and seek to conquer and enslave all other races, they're also known for eating their prisoners this is true not propoganda. I had trouble coming up with a good alien race that would be intimadating Raptors seemed to be a good choice.

Gripes: All GE things sorry HWFM's but it got ridiculous in spots

Praises: All players contributions couldn't have done it without your support.

Favorite parts: Fighting slave traders, Preacher shot down, Kosh's revenge, the infiltration mission, and the rescue mission and the derelict ship were also pretty fun.

That's all I can think of right now feel free to ask questions about anything you never had answered or if you just want to talk about a particular part.

One last set of notes

Daedalians: When Preacher was shotdown I needed to come up with a species and ended up creating Daedalians basically anthropamorphic jackals, I ended up liking them and squezzing them in whenever I could, among Kosh's crew etc.

The original ending: I was really going to kill Riddler in that last mission as that's what usually happens to the burned out veteran who's finally found happiness, but ya'll were having none of that I don't really regret that he was spared the fate, it would be terrible making Shmirdra a widow thhose two have been through so much crap in their lives they needed something good.

WOO!

My favorite parts? I gotta admit, even though Merc and I got into a little -ahem- scuffle during the mission mainly because I was new to RPing (This is literally the first RP I've ever been in, and as such, will always have a special place), that mission was super badass. It was CRAZY!

Hey now, not ALL GE things were bad, fighting them was hell'a fun.
