I'm having trouble starting off my post. I'm sure I can make it decent length, but just need to think of a good way to start it off.
It is proven that 90% of teens would have a mental breakdown if Miley Cyrus where to stand on the edge of a 6 story building. Post this in your sig if your are the 10% yelling "JUMP B!TCH!!"

You could start out with a conversation or something that gives us insight into the general populous of your nation, and then segue into a scene related to what is going on. Or you could just drop right into the scenario without exposition.

Posted! XD. I apologize for my late post. Things have been busy at my home. I'm leaving to visit my grandparents soon, so I may not be able to post. But then again I might be able to. Just don't expect any fast replies. Once again, I apologize for the delay.

The delay is not a problem, I'm simply glad that you posted. Based on the content of your first post, I am now more eager than ever to begin to interact with you in-character. Hopefully things will start to speed up a little now that we have another person involved, I really would like to see this roleplay become a success.

I am glad you liked it Doug. I tried to add a level of tension for my nation. Especially because they know their government isn't the most... Liked, in the galaxy. I'm planning on posting again soon ^^

ROFLMAO, expect to interact with the IPF soon. It'll be interesting to see how our nations interact for the first time...

I am interested in this RP. It was pointed out to me by a friend here that I know from other RP's. Work is sort of hectic, so I'm kind of busy. I hope to have something created in the next week. I apologize it's taking so long, but I have a lot going on.
Don't quit yet, please

That's for sure Mr. Carmel. It takes quite a while to hammer out posts for this thing, but that's part of the fun. On the plus side you don't actually need to wait for anyone to post either, theoretically you could just keep writing about stuff going on inside of your nation without interacting with other writers at all!

In your bio, you say every clan has a "Jack"? O.O Or only a few clans have them?

Every clan...It's a pure military planet...So not having one is like not having a sword for battle...in space! But the power of the jack depends on the clan. Like the Emperor would have the most powerful jack of all.

Now this might bring up a question how anyon can come this planet and not see any ships...The answer is simple..IT'S A TRAP! haha, Rai has all clans ships hiding off far way from the planet (Maybe in the same solar system) just waiting for a mass invasion for them to just come out of no where and ambush the invaders.

First: Thanks for telling me the plan X)

Second: If every clan has a jack... Thats like me having 200 Patriarchs floating Around, since you have them listed as Size: 8. Any thoughts Doug?

Re: Ascendancy: A Candle in the Dark

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Doug on Fri Jul 27, 2012 7:42 pm

I'm in agreement with Carmel on this one. Especially given the fact that you expressly stated that your nation has practically no space forces,when you have more than twice as many ships as I do, and all of them on par with my strongest vessel. Personally, I would cap it at 5 Jacks (I have 3 Athena and I'd say the two ships are roughly analogous) and either have some clans not in control of one, or decrease the number of clans total. One possibly idea is to create an additional class of ship or two and give the strongest clans Jacks, while giving the others weaker cruisers and frigates.

I'm not one for placing limits on other people, and I do believe that we all should be able to exercise as much freedom as possible with our nation designs. Balance is not a major concern here, because in reality it doesn't make sense to have some artificial maximums placed on things in an otherwise open world. However, with that said, when your "virtually non-existent" fleet is capable of completely steamrolling everyone else with minimal effort, we have a problem.

For reference, my fleet contains about 40 vessels in it. Three Athena vessels serve as flags for the three battle groups. Then there are 12 Ares vessels, and 25 Navis (I'm not counting Hermes because of their largely non-combat role).

Also, Carmel, no meta-gaming now =p.
