~The Battle of the Empires~ A RP

post #1 of 76122
Thread Starter 

The Brenka Galaxy has been living mostly in peace the past thousand years. However, an unknown evil is rising. The Drex, believed to be the greatest evil in the galaxy, are under the command of one who claims himself to be The Master of All. Great Empires are falling. The Battian Empire, one of the most powerful in the whole galaxy, is assumed to have gone extinct. The galaxy is in peril and despair. However, there is still hope. A mystery spanning millions and millions of years must be solved in order to save the galaxy.

 

Galactic Map:

I will update this as more empires are created and more activity happens.


Rules

1. I run this RP. What I say goes.
2. You cannot kill another person's character without asking for their permission.
3. Your captain cannot have a Corbian Ability without breathing Earth air.
4. Teleportation IS allowed, provided that the area does not have a nullifier and that teleportations are not futher than outside the atmosphere.
5. You cannot have more than 5 captains, and no more than 3 empires. You can have less than that, but you cannot have more. Maximum number of crew members is 4 per captain. You cannot have crew members without a captain. I may have more than 5 captains and 3 empires in so that the plot may be set correctly.
6. You must ask permission to use someone else's empire for your captain and crew members (should you have any).

7. Love is allowed, however it cannot be the entire subject of the RP.
8. I reserve the right to change the plot as often as I please.

9. Maximum time between posts is 2 weeks. If you do not post for 2 weeks I will consider removing you.
10. No plot twists without my consent.
11. Your empire cannot be the most powerful in the whole galaxy without my consent. It can be powerful, yes, but it cannot be more powerful than the Drex or Battian Empires.

12. You MAY have evil characters, however they cannot be more powerful than the main antagonist.

 

Legend

T0 Planet- The planet is hostile, its temperature and or atmosphere level is too extreme to support life. Anything will die here if he or she does not have a shield on.

 

Izouix Energy- Essentially anti-life energy, it is highly deadly. Only the Drex have mastered it, and only one object can destroy it.

 

Drex- The Drex are a species of cyborgs that occupy the center of the Brenka. They are one of the two level 10 empires in the entire galaxy, having achieved technology that no other empire, except perhaps the Battians, has even come close to. Their past is obscured with the clouds of mystery.

 

Black Wormhole- A wormhole that leads straight to the center of the Milky Way. Its wherabouts are unknown, and there are many rumors about its true location. It looks identical to any other black hole or wormhole, making it impossible to tell if it is the Black Wormhole. It is said that if you are lucky enough to see it, it will burst, looking very similar to the black hole at the center of the Brenka with a golden color to it.

Her skin is quite soft, as well as near white. Her hair is of deep strawberry orange, complete with long bangs. As the captain of her crew, she dresses most elaborately. Her breastplate is complete with long sleeves and covers most of her neck, the ends tipped in deep purple and the cuffs of her sleeves slightly pointed, also covering the area before her fingers.

Matching barbed shin guards are worn. Her shoulder pads are tall and barbed as well, with the same jewels. She usually wears a helmet made of the skull of a Krinakk, a wolf-like creature from the Asterian's home planet. Each article of clothing is quite skintight and thick, which happens to show off her muscled body. She carries a large staff made of holy wood from her planet, covered in all sorts of traditional decor. Two hip holsters also carry ray guns.

Empire Name (must be that of the species' name): Battian Empire
General Appearance: Battians have a crocodilian face without the leathery skin. Has reptilian eyes and feline ears, a slender body and muscular arms and legs. The hands are similar to that of a cat's paws, however with 3 fingers and opposable thumbs. The feet are akin to that of a dinosaur's. The fur is a light shade of blue, with gentle darker stripes feathering the underbelly which is a pale blue. Battians can frequently be seen wearing metal chest plates and captain hats, and masks that run across the face if on a T0 planet.
Level: 10

Empire Name (must be that of the species' name): Lunar Cat Empire
General Appearance: Lunar Cats have white fur, and a feline-like face. They also have feline eyes, cat ears, and deer antlers on their heads. Their most striking feature is that their large tail arches and curls above their back, almost hanging above their heads. They have bat-like wings and spikes on their thighs that have deadly poison glands inside them, though the spikes are evolutionary advantages that are rarely used anymore. Now they wear cages around the spikes to protect them. Their hands are akin to those of a raptor's talons, and the feet are akin to those of a cat's. Lunar Cats can frequently be seen wearing braces around the joints of the wings to protect them from dislocation, backpacks, and captain hats. On a T0 they can be seen wearing black shields across the eyes not unlike sunglasses to protect their eyes from harmful rays.
Level (levels 6 through 9 are allowed, 6 being very small and 9 being very large:) 7

 

Empire Name (must be that of the species' name): Terrellian Quadrantacle
General Appearance: Human with 6 fingers and toes.  Skin shades of light brown to purple.  Neon green or blue diamond shaped plasma gems on forhead.  Speckled and swirled paterns of glowing plasma continuing to temple down sides of neck, arms, torso, and legs. In daylight patern is white.  Hair colors range from shades of red, black, white, or bright purple.  Ears are pointed.  Eyes are Yellow or green.  Very muscular.  Uniforms are reinforced to absorb energy and protect against blades, they are blacl with plasma patterns (kind of like Tron) and a family crest on the chest.  Captains wear a Red band from Right shoulder to hip with the Royal crest in gold.  Double energizing swords are preferred weapons.
Level (levels 6 through 9 are allowed, 6 being very small and 9 being very large:) 8
 

Empire Name (must be that of the species' name): Asterian Imperii
General Appearance: Heights vary. Women are usually somewhere from 5'6" to 6'3", while men stand at around 5'8" to 6'6". Hair colors range anywhere from dark red to platinum blonde. The people's ears are lightly pointed at the ends. Instead of having normal feet, the Asterians possess cloven hooves, although their hands are just like those of humans. They have very pale skin, and if exposed to intense sunlight long enough it can become quite freckled. They also have ram-like horns that match the color of their skin, as well as short tails that taper inwards. Most are of an athletic build, although many Asterians tend to grow fatter once they become elderly. Their lifespan is just like that of a human's. All have dark eyes. Although this is not a part of appearance, it is uncommon to find an Asterian that does not have the letter 'a' in their name. It is common to find apostrophes in names. Asterians of general ranking wear dark silver plated armor covering their entire bodies (other than hands, heads, and hooves), a purple aura swirling from the insides of it. The higher the rank the more decorated their armor will be. They are very easy to spot, as their uniforms may only be charcoal and dark purple.
Level (levels 6 through 9 are allowed, 6 being very small and 9 being very large): 6
Characters: Work in progress.

Nakiso breathed heavily, bolting around a corner as another pulse exploded in the air. Andrenaline kept him going as he raced to the other side of the street, his powerful legs carrying him. He ducked, narrowly missing a pulse as it soared over his head. It hit a nearby house, and the walls from the outside collapsed upon contact with the pulse.

"Whew," Nakiso murmured, "Close call."

His brief moment of relief was almost immediately destroyed as he ducked behind a metal wall. Three Drex soldiers walked on by, searching for any signs of resistance. Once he was sure they were gone, Nakiso dashed out from behind the metal wall and ran the last few yards towards the Control Tower.

The Control Tower of Battia was huge, it seemed to go into space itself. It was the center for any Battian exchange. Everything inside the Battian Empire was controlled by it. Truly, it was astounding. But that was the least of Nakiso's concerns at the moment.

He pressed his thumb against a fingerprint scanner, and the door opened. He ran through the dark hallways of the Battia Control Tower, praying that no Drex soldiers would see him.

"Come on... I know this place like the back of my hand! Why can't I find the landing pad?!" Finally, his efforts proved worthwhile as he skidded to a stop in front of the landing pad. His chest rising up and down rapidly, he slammed his thumb onto the fingerprint reader. It gave a low chime, and the glass doors opened. He ran forward towards his ship, standing directly under it.

"Ascend," He commanded frantically.

Nakiso was teleported inside his ship, sitting right inside the cockpit. He pulled on the levers, and almost instantly the ship began rising. He watched as Drex and Battian ships fought.

It was clear who was winning.

Nakiso sighed, turning away. He felt like a traitor of his empire as he flew upwards towards the upper atmosphere. Countless Battians were sacrificing their lives to defend Battia. But the battle was futile.

Once Nakiso exited the atmosphere, he raced out of the star system and began flying through the maze of stars. He couldn't fight them now, but he knew he would have his revenge against the Drex.

(Levels are determined by the size of the empire and the technological advancement they have achieved, for example a new empire that is just beginning space travel would be a level 6. The Drex and Battians are level 10 because of a plot twist that I plan on bringing into the RP later.)

*unknown wherabouts*

 

Civer strutted down the dark hallways of an unknown location. Several Drenex soldiers lined the walls, their robotic eye twitching as they saw him. Civer smiled. They were ready to fight, and die, at a moment's notice, for The Master of All.

Captain Shandrak leaned against the cold stone.  Stars twinkling abover her the red nebula reaching out it arms.  The oxygen was thin but breathable on th extinct moon.  She flung a leg up onto the rock in front or her.

 

"It's getting cold." Crut tossed a subzero jacket at Shandrak.

 

"It shouldn't be much longer," she examined the jacket with a sigh.  "Is this neccessary?"  She noted that the jacket was calibrated for a much colder tempreature than she expected.

 

Crut grunted and walked back towards shuttle.  Then he looked back over his shoulder. "Do you think that he suffered the same fate as the others?"  It had been 3 days of waiting for their rondesvous with Captain Nostros.  It had been almost 100 years since they left the Terrellian Quadrantacle to find earth.  Seven Captains were sent the breath Earth's air and only five returned.  It had been a long journey, longer than most, but now they were at the border of their empire.... only a step away from home.    

 

"My time has not come."  A deep voice echoed amongst the lunar rocks.  Captain Nostros emerged from the shadows.  Shandrak ran up to him but he grabbed both of her arms, "we agreed to keep a distance now that we are home."

 

"I haven't entirely made up my mind about that,"  Shandrak turned away.  "The King can't have everything that he wants."

 

"We journeyed to far to sacrifice the gift we've been given.  Besides the King would never give up his favorite Captain."

 

"More like a body guard."

 

"The others are waiting for us to join with them for the ceremonial return."  Nostros changed the subject.  He held out his hand and a small ball flew up into the air then unfolded like paper to reveal a map.  "The coordinates."

 

Shandrak again gazed up at the red nebula.  "I sense trouble over there." 

 

"You've been sensing a lot of things since we made it back."  Nostros reached to put his hand on her shoulder then withdrew it before touching her.  "You can't be developing a new ability?"

 

"No... perhaps just a better understanding of it."  She squinted her dazzling green eyes.  Beyond the nebula lie the Battain Empire.  She couldn't draw her attention away  something  was wrong in the stars.  "Yes... let us go home."

At the end of the long hallway was a doorway, millions of years old. It had been built to withstand the heat, rays, and pretty much anything on this desolate T0 world that only the Drex could survive on.

 

The Drex were one of the oldest empires in the galaxy. They are reknowned, almost every single empire knew about them for their hostility. They were a canine-like species, looking like a collie without a tail. They had enhanced their body with cybernetic parts to help them survive on T0 worlds, as after a catastrophe billions of years ago it turned nearly all of the planets they inhabited to T0. It is unknown how they came about, all that is known is that they created a barricade around the center of the galaxy. Very few captains had managed to break through and get to the center. Some of the handfull of captains who managed to get there thought it was because what was there was a threat to their existance. However no one truly knew why they did, and all they could do was theorize.

 

Civer took a deep breath as he past by the Drex soldiers who were pacing around the door like caged animals, his robotic foot letting out a low "clink" in the hallway every time he took a step. On top of the doorway it read, in ancient Drexian dialog,

These are the gateways to Xerdo

With a final breath, Civer hesitantly pushed the door outwards, turning his head away from what awaited him there.

Nakiso had stopped his ship above a star not too far away from the Battian Empire. Unknown to him it was the star system where Captain Nostros and the others were.

 

"The Drex have taken everything I've known away from me... Battia is gone, and by now, probably the entire empire... 'Captain Nakiso d'Anver, the legendary of the Battian Empire, loses in the blink of in eye.' I don't know a thing about what they plan on doing with the supercube, but they're doing something. I don't know where they would be heading next... probably Sol 3. I should probably head there soon, but I don't know why they would be heading there...
