Collab Battle

Post by Vero on Sun 09 Mar 2014, 9:16 pm

So we were in a Skype call talking about random crap, and then everybody (or at least Goat and I) remembered the Saving Private Ryan final battle and we were like 'it'd be pretty fun to do that'. Knowing the forum to the extent that we do, we'd realize immediately that people want to have their own sort of characters from their own planet, so people would have their own unique identities for each of their people that was original and from something the made.

The basis we want is sort of ISS/DtHaBA universe where the TSF did not splinter. Instead it overcame the rebellion and conslidated it's centralized power once again. They would continue to expand until hitting another empire, having now encompassed non-human races as well. As the TSF and this unnamed empire clashed, the TSF would constantly be on the backfoot as it was forced into retreat by superior firepower, manpower, and strategies from this empire.

So it's sort of like a final battle, except for the fact that it's a constant retreat from planet to planet as fighting becomes survival.

Details suchs as the empire, enemy race, and others need help.

I'm down for this...
Maybe we could have a stereotypical omniscient God-Race as the enemy... but with more ballistics.

Hmm. I'm wary against god-factions has enemies-it generally kills the realism of the heroics that the PCs do. It should be something at the same or slightly higher tech level has the TSF.

I could roll with this.

Also, I hate God-Races mostly because... Yuuzhan Vong

Fair enough I suppose. It's a question of how to go about creating this enemy empirical race.

So we're rolling with Jinx's idea of a slightly higher tech level? Like Covenant vs. UNSC, then?

Additionally, we should probably start with the basis of the race appearance as well as any other slave-races they have fighting for them, just so our characters have an idea of the enemy's anatomy.

Anatomy wise I would say at least relative to humans. I mean, considering TSF technology when we'll have it is far superior to UNSC technology, having twelve foot tall brutes resembling humans from WH40K is more than overkill. I'm not saying that this race should be humanlike, but they should have similar principles regarding human strength or mentality. However they can also be weaker but augment their bodies to be superior.

Regarding slave-races if we so choose to use them, we can get creative as hell as long as they don't get god-like.

I say slave races have to be either primitive or physically weaker than our main race, or just a race conquered in war depending on how we go about their mentality. But let's be honest, it wouldn't make sense for humans to be able to conquer a planet of giant, intelligent plasma-weapon wielding like... dragons or something.

I'm down for this. Sounds like an awesome idea. 

I vote no to god race. I think the alien race should be equal or only slightly more advanced. 

Also, why should the other races be slaves? It could be a confederation of races. Or it could be a mix of both. A confederation of a couple of races that see themselves as equals that control a menial slave race. 

They don't necessarily have to be like humans. But as far as height and physical strength go? Yeah they should be similar to humans.

I think if we're going for a more realistic foe; they should also behave more realistically. I'd like to see a race[s] who actually have a mind for logic and don't just decide they should go on a crusade. That's like... so medieval.

This race is "advanced or slightly more advanced" so it should have the same rough ideals of the races in the current fold. We can always do the lame 'Big Fish eat Little Fish' idea, though I think it could be more interesting with, maybe, the TSF and the enemy race actually being neutral for a time, coexisting, before a certain major event occurs, or maybe a series of minor events, that turns both sides to war.
Hell, why should it be the enemy race who starts the war? It could be some Helghast-ISA stuff where the RP'ers are fighting for the actual bad guys...

Well, the TSF is pretty imperialistic (hence our congregation of several rebel races in ISS) so yeah, the TSF would most likely be looking to conquer another faction, but end up underestimating their opponent. Although, I like House's idea of already starting from a "Last Stand" situation. Maybe a couple of good battles turn the tide to make eat even-heel again... I don't know.

I agree on the RP scenario; though just some backstory to set the course to action.
ie; the TSF would be beaten back to a few or one world after initiating the conflict, the opposing race unwilling to agree to a treaty.

One thing; how advanced IS the TSF? That would give me/us something to compare the aliens to.

PiratePad's not working anymore?


Either way, what else do we need to get this started?

It's working now.

We need more races, mostly for the Oruch Vedra Empire.

Don't look at me, I added two races. But I guess I'll work on a third.

Maybe give a rough overview of the TSF faction/races technology...
