In the name of God, national survival and humanity....
The crimes of Resi Corp can no longer be stomached...no longer can we turned a blind eye to their violent Godless crimes...
In the Name of The Father!
In the Name Of Sri Lanka!
In the Name of the dead murdered by Resi Terrorists!
In the Name of the millions held in bondage by Resi Corp...
Iesus Christi, the Reich and her allies declare war on Resi Corp....only occupation will end the tyranny of Resicorp!
As I speak....Reich battle groups launch assaults upon Resi,
from Sea , air and soon land Resi is being assault...
Friends...brothers..comrades...this battle will be brutal but short...we will wade through rivers of blood, and I vow we will drink richly of these rivers of blood we set flowing from the Resi Tyrants!
To the foolish few small allies of Resi....any support you give resi will be remembered...and WHEN resi falls....you will find yourself the target of the blood vendetta of a angry God!

ONTO RESI! FREE THE PEOPLE!
DEATH TO THE TYRANT!!
GOD IS GREAT! GOD IS GREAT!

"For once we will stand side by side with The Reich, rather than against them!

For once, we will march together, to eradicate the humanoid filth that rules the Resi corp!

We will free the people enslaved by The Resi Corp!

We will free the world from their monopolistic tendencies!

We will walk in blood, for ours is the honour to wipe them from the face of this world!

Let us throw them into the void, for they shall not stand up again!"

General McClean laughed......The blood and horror tactics would sweep Resi from the field...
The first airstrikes would target airstrips, coastal defences, inland supply/command networks related to the landing areas....weakening them as the first wave attack...
Wave after wave of Missles, aircraft and hell even suicide craft begin their attacks on these targets, From the varied allied fleets and their home nations these attacks flew off to attack the hated enemy.

The first landing wave would began quickly..the hero divisions....better known as cannon fodder...some would land even as Attack craft attack the landing areas...and the suicide para drops would begin soon..
Death meant nothing, only victory matters!

Unlike the Iesus Christi Forces, White Hawk preferred more 'subtle' methods...

The heavy transporters started, made their way towards Resi Corp... of course, they would not hit the territory... well, not in the first wave.

Their aim: A position ~ 800km from The Resi Corp... there, they would start the reconnaissance drohnes, 5760 of them... all very light, small, and unarmed...

They would fly to The Resi Corp hold territory, they would see it all... the high command would see it as well...

And they would know where to strike.

---

Meanwhile, in Orniot above DA AND in Orbit above The Resi Corp, The ships release small buoys... They don´t send out anything, their passive scan systems only wait to find hints of Law_of_relativity_breaking_reactions, like the ones normally emitted by FTL drives...

Meanwhile, the high command declared the orbts of DA and The Resi corp "Warzones. Any FTL- jumps in this areas have to be performed at own risk, and are highly discouraged. We are not accountable for any damages."

---

ooc:

1. Resi: First of all, i need to know where your forces are, the territory they stand in, etc.. Just anything satellites + the drohnes could find out.

Then, how do your robot drohnes work? Independently, or are they fully controlled by a central command, OR independent but they follow ttransmissions from the high command.

Also, do they send information about the tactical situation to the high command so that it can react? (If not, they are practically useless crap...)

Then, for all others: Current deployments/ attacks:

Attacks: Only the forementioned drohnes, the transporters will be gone long before Resi Territory is hit, actually, i assume the Coalition against resi has air superiority where the Drohnes are released.

Deployments: Three fleets near the Iesus fleet.

Six fleets in Resi Corp Orbit. (Anyone ortillering the coalition against Resi HAS to RP getting around them, just to make this clear...)

:Der Angst, I know how little liking Menelmacar has for me. But the fact remains that after what happened last time, I'm on her side. I need to know if this is a Menelmacar sanctioned war, so I can decide where I stand. My assistance could be valuable to either side, so...

I have no idea. Really, I was gone for 24 hours, less, and this happens.

Der Angst, I applied for asylum in your region, on the offchance that you or some other Cenna higherup orders me into the fray.

Must keep telling myself: "It was either join Menelmacar or be destroyed."

((In case the rest of you are wondering what I'm on about, in July I betrayed Menelmacar for Melkor Unchained. In August I was thrashed back onto the side of good, and narrowly avoided destruction. Not going to risk that again.))

Even now our brave troops prepare for battle! Eurusean forces will lead the way in the first wave of the attack! Even now a dozen of our mighty Floating Fortresses take up position with the Reich fleet! Victory will be swift and complete, such is the will of God! Glory to the Reich! Death to the infidel!

That's not sarcasm. Seriously, you're making an OOC comment to the actions of an IC character, and referring to a politically sensitive topic in the process.

Open message from the Kalessin Ministry of Truth:

"Tales of the heinous crimes committed by the foul Resi Corporation have even reached the far-away shores of the Empire, and these tales are terrible indeed. The people of Resi value nothing but profit, discarding pleasure, honour and kindness for the sake of monetary gain. They have even gone so far as to enslave their own people. The workers in the factories of this haven of evil are chained to their machines, and forced to work by the crack of whips and the bellows of their overseers. In addition to this wanton greed and disgusting cruelty, the Resi Corporation has commited vile acts of terrorism, bombing and murdering the people of the Reich, including many hapless civilians inside the lands of our friends of Iesus Christi. These godless scum, who worship only their bank-balances, are an abomination, a curse upon the earth. They are parasites, seeking to drain the world dry in order to fill their own pockets. They must be destroyed."

Message from the Kalessin Ministry of Peace to Iesus Christi:

"We will send our seventh fleet, in addition to as many Dragonriders and mages as can be spared, to aid you against the Resi Corporation. All we ask is that the Empire be given a fair share of any spoils that may come our way, and that we be given as many Resi men and women of working age as will fit in the holds of our ships, that they may become citizens of Kalessin, and work for us as indentured servants."

"Yes, but where was our 'friend' when we were in danger? We will not be sending men! We will only allow the coalition acess to our bases and airspace. And on condition that minimum force is used."

Space

There are satellites and there are satellites. Some pack low-velocity coilguns, some are made of cheap, light materials and fired out of said coilguns.

Also, there are drones and there are drones. Consider the Global Hawk - a monster. And consider an Armscor/Territorial expendable sensor munition that, rolled up, fits in a tube one inch by eight inches. Well, they both fly at twenty kilometers and so...

Still, with enough thousands of these things drifting around the region the Territory aims to keep some sort of eye on the chaos. No reason to get involved.

In the holds of Reich ships tanned, lean men of great beauty work and wait and sing and love and exercise. They are pious, and full of love for all living things, and about to go and shoot, blow up and burn a lot of them.

They make up two army groups seconded to the Wehrmacht - near five hundred thousand of Infinite Loving's finest, long trained and well equipped. A great choir ready to sing praise as the souls of sinners are released at last.

[OOC: Or a huge lot of heavily armed, overbred, dehumanized nutjobs with brains full of happy drugs and bodies full of post-steroids. Oh, this is just Infinite loving's bit of the Reich invasion, and it's not going to do much before landing.]

In the darkest moment of the quietest night 12 fighters launch from their airfield in the middle of the desert. Their destination unknown, climbing to altitudes totaly unknown to conventional aircraft they disappear into the night their specialy designed treznorian active stealth activating.

Flying along at speeds in excess of mach 10 their pilots ensure their cockpits are secured and fluids working, checking the monitors they confirm they are un tracked. Speeding to their max speed they turn and head towards the skies of The Resi Corporation.

In his office Carlos sighs and looks at the report. "They refused reparations, insulted and blatantly gave us false information. I've been left with no choice.... The dogs of holy light will be unleashed. May the bodies of their people survive the burning fires to gain redemption in the after moments. To enlightenment I commit these forces."

All over the empire mobalisations of troops begins slowly building up a war machine that will be unstoppable when complete. The hypersonic aircraft soar silently and quickly through the airs their targets will be forward Resi Corp positions and air defenses they know they are untouchable.

In his chamber Commander Jovanovic looked at the spread out maps, his fingers following the different positions of the different fleets moving towards the Resi Corp. His aid pointed out the Veganian navy positions; the third, fourth and fifth carrier groups as well as the first and second Hoover craft fleets, escorted by the seventh Carrier Group.

"What the heck are they doing?! They're attacking already? No, it can't be possible, we haven't even started the bombardment yet. The EMP-strikes, the bombs. Send up the airforce, we have to do something about this"

Public statement from Tor Yvresse on the RESI matter.

to our honoured friends the Nation of Whispering Voices, we respectfully ask you to cease, at least temporary, your aggresion against RESI, so that our two peoples can meet in the spirit of co-operation that our shared Membership of CENNA would ask of us. We feel that RESI is being wrongfully attacked and mistreated and would come to their aid, yet your presence makes this difficult. We suggest therefore that a meeting between our nations is urgently required to enable us both to come to an agreement on this issue, before it becomes too late.

I haven't really been paying attention... what did resi do to anger you?

ooc:- OK the "bad guys" (namely Iesus Christi & friends) have made up a lot of false statements about ResiCorp, so they will have an excuse to attack ResiCorp. As it's all IC its allowable...why Resi agreed to go along with it I don't know...anyway the real reason is they want Resi stuff without paying resi for it. Of cource I standby to ridicual any bad RPing like declaring that they enter Resi space without him intercepting it.

OOC In case it couldn't be guessed from the labelling of one side as "bad guys" that is somewhat of a bias view. On the other hand, I have my doubts that you will find an unbiased view anywhere in this matter. I'll do my best, but I do have my own opinions :wink:

Resi has been irritating people by selling nations IC. Others view this as slavery (selling the population of an entire nation to the highest bidder?) and denounced him for it. Resi says it isn't, with little justification.

Resi also irritates people by claiming patents on ridiculous things like "plasma" or "bipedal robots"... things that other nations have been using for ages (e.g. Menmelmacar and Melkor using Plasma tech). Usually people ignore this, but has been known to 'bully' young nations into not pursuing technology because "he owns the patent". This annoys people.

He also _does_ create and test (on other nations) viral, chemical and nanite (*snerk*) based weapons of mass destruction. (As I see it Iesus Christi has enough evidence of this to be certain, but not enough to 'prove' it to Resi's friends. But I might be wrong.)

Now... Iesus deliberately provokes Resi by buying a "Resicopter", reverse-engineering it and starts up a store thread selling (100% identical) "Christicopters". Resi complains loudly about his patents, Iesus laughs in his face. Resi then pursues a covert operation to destroy a base in IC, which Iesus labels as a terrorist attack. (Resi claims this was faked... I don't know either way).

In short, Iesus and allies provide thin propaganda that Resi-corp is evil, bad and wrong as justification for the attack. Resi provides 'proof' to the contrary that just looks like thin propaganda. Iesus' friends say that he must be destroyed and join his side... as does anyone else who dislikes Resi. All of Resi's friends are 100% convinced that he is as pure as driven snow and pledge their lives to defend him.
Smart people stay well clear.

Yes okay, so I come across as slightly biased... but I have allies on both sides, so I'm steering clear. Iesus' reasons are largely manufactured and mostly unprovable, but they are reasons and they are being presented no worse than Resi's replies.
Lots of people are shouting for diplomacy, but nobody is listening on the Reich side :wink:

Now, I'm going to cut the OOC chatter and the thinly veiled *tag*.

OOC: I've never really understood the exact meaning of the phrase, but I get the general idea. That was not carpetnuking, that was the tactical use nuclear weapons to preserve expensive strategic assets after it became clear that nuclear weapons might have been launched at my ships. They used six, we used six. The fact that they weren't nuclear weapons didn't matter, the fact that TPA had a history of using WMD did.

EDIT: And I didn't just go off and launch nukes at him, I tried to intercept the missiles with fighters first.

The Sixteenth Expedition finished sailing around in circles - after a while it had been obvious what they had been doing: receiving supplied airdrops from escorted military suppliers that had set off from the colony of the Corpselands. They then plowed through the waves towards the Resi Corporation ... and, en route, met the fleets of the fiefdoms of Whispering Voices: sultry Murderous Tendencies, pious Endless Regrets, violent Quiet Laughter, and raging Hushed Breaths.

The &lt;*&gt; fleet moved on, towards the Corporate Islands.

The Seventeenth, Eighteenth, Nineteenth and Twentieth Expeditions moved on towards &lt;wouldn't you like to know&gt;, darkening the seas with their movements.

OOC:
* denotes numbers determined by Resi. If he has an insane force or is using puppets for his military, then each of my four fiefdoms (with it's own distinct personality, too, if you read the other thread! Yay me!) will provide a full sized army. Considering they're all in the top 1500 for defence spend and over a billion each, the armies are pretty big ;)
If there are no puppets, the fiefdoms are only for flavour text.

Tag, but be aware of DNS spaceforces defending Resi.

&lt;chitter&gt;&lt;chitter&gt; ["All right, lads, show us yer placards!"]

The mighty LORD OF ALL EWOKS stood, his huge five foot three frame - bunched with muscle - pacing the command deck of the 'Big Log' impatiently.

Around him, his Elite Picketing Division were busy doing computer models of new placard designs - "Resi Rubs Raw", "Capitalism Needs Capital Sentencing", and "Suck my furry ****stick, biatch" are all displayed in luxurious 3D, with odd slightly cool holograms around them.

&lt;chitter!&gt; ["Let's use all of them!"]

The Picketing Division nodded eagerly, and relayed the orders and design specs to the Placard Manufacturing Department, deep - about seven kilometres away - within the main body of the 'Big Log'. FTL communications - utterly worthless and grotesquely misused - added the placard logos to their data traffic - also incorporating an unhealthy amount of Ewok porn, Jaja snuff movies, and Princess Amidala Chocolate Panties pictures.

And then came the military briefing. The grim Ewok forces, battle-scarred and eager for bloodshed, drank coca-cola from the machines they had stolen out of that Imperial Forces nuclear weapons silo - the nuke itself was slung underneath the 'Big Log', a damning testament to their eliteness.

&lt;chitter&gt;&lt;chatter&gt;&lt;chitter&gt;
The LORD OF ALL EWOKS glared at the &lt;chitter&gt;ing Ewok, and made an odd gesture with his stubby hand at the other Ewok's throat. Absolutely nothing happened, because he was an Ewok, not a Jedi. However, he did have 20 levels of Soldier and Weapons Master, so he simply drew out a portable E-web, put it on the briefing table, and shot all the advisors who were disagreeing with him.

Leaving their blood to run down the walls, the 'Big Log' and its armada of ninety nine other giant ships began heading towards Resi orbit - keeping the comparitively puny fleet of DNS between them and Resi.

Active targeting systems began scanning the DNS spacecraft, searching for weaknesses, strengths, and naughty graffiti written by techies on the engine blocks.

Any attack on Resi Corp will, therefore, be seen by this Conglomerate as an effort to attack potential ITC property, and will react with according pressure on our government - and trade activities may encounter difficulty for the attacker in the near future.

We have yet to flex our capital might - do not force us to do so.

Rialla... surely there is some other way? I should note that getting hold of the outstanding Resi stock would be expensive and timeconsuming, and time is not something we have, with Iesus bombs already falling. While rather less delicate, remember that taking is a great deal less expensive than buying. Why not simply join the attack? You could fight at our side, providing heavy orbital support. The coalition members are taking equal shares of the company after it is all over.

Think on it.

Frankly, there hasn't been one shred of solid evidence to support this attack and while I'm not surprised by the Reich, I am surprised by those like Menelmacar who are joining them, it doesn't seem in character to support the supressors.

Hi. Countries can fake reasons to go to war with other countries, and do in Real Life too. Resi can, of course, ignore us. But it would be an ignore based entirely on the fact he didn't want to lose, and come with all of the scorn normally attached to such acts.

Also, can you please not post anywhere ever again until you've done an IC post over 3 lines long? Thanks.

You make a valid point, Lady Sirithil. We were intending to exert, ahem, pressure on Iesus Christi via other avenues... but this will be simpler.

As opinion appears to be with you, we will alter our strategy.

{End Transmission}

[Public]

The Empire has altered perspective, due to careful consultation of allies, and I am issuing an Imperial Decree banning the Imperial Trade Conglomerate from attempting to react to this situation.

As we are undoubtedly already involved, however, we will aid our Menelmacari allies in the good honour of our long-standing alliance.

To swift victory - and with the level of deployment we are committing, a swift victory is the only likely outcome. To stability we toast.

* * *

High in orbit above the Empire, and even above Vilya Elenosto, nearly a quarter of the strength of the 1 Orbital Battlegroup sweeps out of its current position and rapidly rolls into an orbital course that will take them directly above the Corporate Islands - and Resi Corporation.

The maneuver will only take several minutes; after the time ticks by, the sky, the black sky far above the Earth glinting below and obscuring the stars with her radiance, will gain some thirty EOTED IDF SN warships...

...including three Retribution class battlecruisers, and two Fear-X class carriers.

We regret having to make this decision, but due to the increasing tension in this already serious situation, we have decided to withdraw the Fourth Aerospace Fleet from its current position defending Resi borders and bring them back home. Orders have already been sent. We would again express our sincerest apologies to Resi, but we can not afford to become involved in a military engagement of this magnitude at the current time. We would be happy to render any aid to Resi's recuperation if the attacks fail, or shelter Resi refugees if they succeed.

(Secret Message to Resi Corporation:) Although we have withdrawn our forces from your borders, as a gesture of friendship we will donate all 50,000 Stinger II swarm fighters to to your armed forces. Oh, and look here, it seems that all the pilots of said fighters have disobeyed orders and refused to return home. (Big conspiratorial OOC wink) We will be sure to punish them very thoroughly for this....after the war is over. (Even bigger OOC wink)

*Off the Coast of Resi Corp, Army Group Hammer Floatilla*

Feld Marschall Walter von Brauchitz, former commander of the largest Scottan Army in the Scottan War, now fighting for the other side, surveyed the coast of Resi using sattelite pics. Several aides stood around him. They had gotten a cable from Reichsburg earlier that day that spoke of the King making his way to the floatilla when Army Group Crusader Joined up with Army Group Hamer.

It was an enormous Floatilla. 5 Enormous Koenig Class Carriers accompanied the fleet along with thousands of Large Iesus Class Transports, capable of transporting 20,000 men or 150 tanks. Three Battleships sailed along with the floatilla and over 15 missile cruisers held up the flanks. Beneath the waters the infamous Submarine RNV John Bell Hood patrolled the Fleet's path along with 5 other Hood Class submarines. Several douzain Black low lieing SDI Ships sailed along with the fleet. It was an enormous undertaking but these fleets were essentially like floating cities with a population of 5 million. They normally stayed in port to cut down expenses, but when needed they could move quickly. As Army Group Hammer had already been deployed and won a victory over Esamopia, it was deemed the best candidate to go after Resi even though its task was technically to fight Communism. Fighters flew covering missions constantly and the SDI ships whose insides were top secret, stayed on high alert.

Brauchitz looked at the latest tellegramme from Reichsburg, "The Cat in the Hat must be arrested and put in prison." it said.

"Relay this tellegramme to the Captain of the lead Transport. He will know what to do." Brauchitz instructed one of his comm officers.

&lt;chitter&gt;&lt;chitter&gt; ["All right, lads, show us yer placards!"]

The mighty LORD OF ALL EWOKS stood, his huge five foot three frame - bunched with muscle - pacing the command deck of the 'Big Log' impatiently.

Around him, his Elite Picketing Division were busy doing computer models of new placard designs - "Resi Rubs Raw", "Capitalism Needs Capital Sentencing", and "Suck my furry ****stick, biatch" are all displayed in luxurious 3D, with odd slightly cool holograms around them.

&lt;chitter!&gt; ["Let's use all of them!"]

The Picketing Division nodded eagerly, and relayed the orders and design specs to the Placard Manufacturing Department, deep - about seven kilometres away - within the main body of the 'Big Log'. FTL communications - utterly worthless and grotesquely misused - added the placard logos to their data traffic - also incorporating an unhealthy amount of Ewok porn, Jaja snuff movies, and Princess Amidala Chocolate Panties pictures.

And then came the military briefing. The grim Ewok forces, battle-scarred and eager for bloodshed, drank coca-cola from the machines they had stolen out of that Imperial Forces nuclear weapons silo - the nuke itself was slung underneath the 'Big Log', a damning testament to their eliteness.

&lt;chitter&gt;&lt;chatter&gt;&lt;chitter&gt;
The LORD OF ALL EWOKS glared at the &lt;chitter&gt;ing Ewok, and made an odd gesture with his stubby hand at the other Ewok's throat. Absolutely nothing happened, because he was an Ewok, not a Jedi. However, he did have 20 levels of Soldier and Weapons Master, so he simply drew out a portable E-web, put it on the briefing table, and shot all the advisors who were disagreeing with him.

Leaving their blood to run down the walls, the 'Big Log' and its armada of ninety nine other giant ships began heading towards Resi orbit - keeping the comparitively puny fleet of DNS between them and Resi.

Active targeting systems began scanning the DNS spacecraft, searching for weaknesses, strengths, and naughty graffiti written by techies on the engine blocks.

High above, several starships floated above Resi Corporation.

08-10-2003, 04:39
Approximately 13,000 feet below the blockadeing naval fleets (terrestrial) where no light ever reaches a single covert crawler(purchased from resi many moons ago), almost all but lifesupport and locomotion systems were shut off and they moved silently only inbetween active sonar pings of the fleet above, staying close to the seabed almost totally indistinguishable from the surrounding boulders and sand. The primarily Organically constructed covert crawler blended in perfectly and continued its covert and un-official mission into Resi Corp waters.

Inside the Crawler were only six men, a skeleton crew for the crawler but just enough to complete the mission of the six, three were I.M.P.A.C.T. members, an Ambasador from Telcordia, and the Pilot and Co-pilot of the craft. no-one said a word as they crawled towards their destination, useing hand signals instead and staying as still as possible to avoid detection of high-sensitivity hydrophones. After reaching there destination 100miles from Resicorp the locomotion controls shut down and the craft sat quiecent on the seafloor waiting for the signal to move ahead with the plan.

In the airlock stood 4 metallic feline like robots also known as SORO V2's they were un activated but they stood ready. The lil known fact about the SORO project was they were originally designed by Telcordia's Infamous L4 R&D facility (Telcordia's equivailent to Area 51) but due to lack of certain technologies large scale production was impossible without Resi's help... it didnt matter now they had a mission to complete.

OOC: this is not an offensive mission but I cannot say the reason for it being there yet even OOC

The Imperium is henceforth announcing its involvement in this matter. As a result of a lucrative deal brokered between Lord Melkor's Imperium, and Christicorp, has perpetuated our taking an interest in this little predicament.

While we harbor no ill feeling towards Resi, we hope he realizes that profit is profit. Being the die-hard capitalist he is, surely this concept is no stranger to Jai Resi.

Dispatched are the 2nd, 3rd, and 9th gravship fleets, along with two transport fleets chock-full-o-Imperial marines. No Uruks yet.

All fleets are travelling under full fighter escort, and of course we'd appreciate it if everyone who wants to see them sunk will save themselves the trouble and just go ahead and scuttle your ships now. Resistance is futile.

The pilots flip a switch and the 12 hypersonic craft fade back into view their active stealth returning to it's dormant state. Checking their locations in relative to Resi Corp positions the squadron commander smiles. Ordering the craft to drop to bombing altitudes he eases back the throttle slowing the jet to a easier to handle mach 5 dropping down they arm their weapons and lock onto targets each jet firing 5 of their missiles off.

Pulling up from their run the 12 craft disappear into the sky once more turning about they activate their scanners and prepare to watch what ever damage their attacks will cause.

Smiling softly the commander orders the jets to prepare for yet another attack run on different holdings once these targets are gone.

The Sixteenth Expedition finished sailing around in circles - after a while it had been obvious what they had been doing: receiving supplied airdrops from escorted military suppliers that had set off from the colony of the Corpselands. They then plowed through the waves towards the Resi Corporation ... and, en route, met the fleets of the fiefdoms of Whispering Voices: sultry Murderous Tendencies, pious Endless Regrets, violent Quiet Laughter, and raging Hushed Breaths.

The &lt;*&gt; fleet moved on, towards the Corporate Islands.

The Seventeenth, Eighteenth, Nineteenth and Twentieth Expeditions moved on towards &lt;wouldn't you like to know&gt;, darkening the seas with their movements.

OOC:

Attack summary. The &lt;*&gt; fleet of the Sixteenth Expedition, and its allies from Murderous Tendencies, Endless Regrets, Quiet Laughter and Hushed Breaths are approaching from the north-east of the Resi Corporation, coming through the centre channel between Resi and Sketchin (I'm guessing from the Corporate Islands map I'm looking at, that's going to be international waters anyway).

Submarines are sweeping the undersea areas, planes the sky areas, intelligence satellites are sneaking into the vast junkyards of orbit to spy down.

If possible, I'd like a rough description of what's on the three islands that are part of the Resi Corporation. Also, where the nanotech production facilities are known to be.

* denotes numbers determined by Resi. If he has an insane force or is using puppets for his military, then each of my four fiefdoms (with it's own distinct personality, too, if you read the other thread! Yay me!) will provide a full sized army. Considering they're all in the top 1500 for defence spend and over a billion each, the armies are pretty big
If there are no puppets, the fiefdoms are only for flavour text.

Replace standard army personnel with your grunt robots, spec-ops with your elite robots, etc. Use 2.0, the later ones are madly complicated.

The covert crawler sat silently on the ocean floor the silt that had been stirred up by its movement had fully settled by now and covered the craft like a blanket furthering its concealment... they were waiting for somethign a word... just one that would decide wehter they moved or sat comfortably on the bottom. should the need arrise they were capable of fireing 10 torpedos and rending the four SORO's on sabtage missions but hopefully they would only pick up their cargo and go home...

The pilot motioned to the Co-Pilot to take the weapon safeties off doing so with a flick of a switch both the countermeasure systems and offensive weaponry were armed and ready for use. though they werent needed at the moment it was best to be prepared for anything. the silt covered their thermal signal even what faint signal there was at this depth, and even on sidescan sonar they would be nothing but a hill on the seafloor amid a plane of Hills, Valleys and Canyons.

Well, I conducted no espionage, so I'll just take a guess. What's on the three islands? I'm assuming corporate facilities?

As for force determinance ... use the Newer England's military calculator. It's what my force is based on. Replace standard army personnel with your grunt robots, spec-ops with your elite robots, etc.

Numbers it gives are pretty good, but you should scale (an Atlantis doesn't correlate directly to a simple submarine for example).((OOC: Both islands are basically big cities. The points marked on the map are places where the industry is especially large.

Like I said before, Defacto Russia isn't an island, I just placed the nation in the Corporate Islands region so I could have all my Resi nations in one place. It's actually much farther north, bordering on Russian Forces.))

Alright - the Sixteenth is headed towards Jain and Unus island, with some preparing to break off to head to Nai Island once the satellites get approximate numbers.

It's expected that the vast majority of ground forces will be at the heart of Resi - Resi City - because that's where they'll be more useful - so looking for troop concentrations on Nai Isle, surface and low water (not deep water, sats aren't that good) shipping, and air bases.

And, of course, to see what facilities are visible on Nai Isle and Jain and Unus isle.

Three hypersonic modified bombers thunder out of a military airbase bound for The Resi Corporation to pick up their banking staff.

Sorry Resi, I'm just being consistent with what I said in the beginning.

IC:

The three modified hypersonic bombers quickly loaded Power Banking personnel along with some banking equipment. The local staff, of course, were left behind and the contigent of Vrakian marines made sure that no unauthorized people tried to get on. Soon, the bombers taxied away and roared off into the sky, their people safe.

“Bah. Major! We got someone here.”

The Major came over, and after a brief exchange in Vrakian, walked away. Another marine came over with some handcuffs (OOC: those little plastic thingys) and roughly bound her wrists and ankles. She curled up in the same corner with a marine keeping a watchful eye on her.

The three Imperial Battlefleets lumbered across the darkening sky, ominously framed aginst the chruning clouds. In a staggered formation, the fleets provided for a defensive shield around the two Sky Furnaces that travelled with the 2nd and 3rd Fleets: the Hithlum and the Gorgoroth, respectively. The only other ship of comparable size was the Dreadnought travelling with the 9th Fleet.

Sky Marshall Marcus Garrand, the infamous Imperial Air Force Commander, stood silently on the bridge of the Hithlum, as thousands upon thousands of men labored beneath him to pilot the ship. He peered through his binoculars a tthe horizon, scanning for ships out of idle paranoia. Sensors indicated that most of the action was still rather far off.

Soon, they would come. Soon, Resi would be crushed under the jackboot of the Imperium.

Garrand snickered. So too, would some others be in for an unpleasant surprise.

Ahadi Il-Amir, the commander of Lord Melkor's newest generation of aerospace Fleets, stood silently on the brige of the Ali'Staan as it initiated a hyperspace jump a short distance away, out of scanner range. Angband had reported a short time before that a craft had been seen leaving Resi via satellite, and appeared to be on a course for Io. Apparently, they were unaware of the Imperial presence on and around Io.

His advisors stood in a semi circle behind him, their hands clasped behind thier back. Ahadi turned around, his scar catching the light, sending a shiver through the assembled party. "We will await their arrival, and jump back into the Io area. These orders are straight from the top, so I dont want them to be munged up. Once we're back in real space, we will hail the craft. Send your men to their stations. Dismissed."
The assembled men hastily complied, running off to their respective stations post-haste. Once they were gone, Il-Amir turned back to the giant window, where Io loomed before him.

Then, the jump process began. Once the jump was complete, active seonsor drones spread out about the fleets in a grid, watching for the arrival of Resi's craft.

They moved silently as the red dawn rose, in packs of no less then a hundred and fifty surrounding each Harvestor, while the Overlords lazily drifted forward. Some skimmed the surface of the clear blue ocean, while other flew hundred of feet above them. Despite their differing altitudes and speeds, they all bore in on a single target. Faarston would fall before the next dawn. The mammoth metallic cloud was visable on the horizon from Resi Corp Island itself, and it only grew larger as time wore on.

The hypersonic modified bombers close in on The Resi Corporation nation.

“Resi Corporation this is Evac flight Juliet Victor one oh oh nine. Request permission to land. I say again, this is Evac flight Juliet Victor one oh oh nine. Request permission to land.”

OOC: If interdicting forces are reacting to my presence please let me know but from what I’ve gathered so far, they aren’t in place yet. As well, these transport/bombers can go extremely quick.

Pretty damn clear I'd say.

I reposted this a couple times on the old thread and as soon as I found out about this being the "war" thread I posted as fast as I can. So if you have a problem with my 3 planes swooping in then state you case. But unless your ships can travel as fast as airplanes it's pretty iffy. As well, even if you were to use the old thread as "proof" then for the first five pages as least you went on and on about "moving into strike positions" but no strikes happened. Not before my first "original post". Correct me if I'm wrong, alright?

Frankly, I reposted my first post about the planes nearing Resi not only so that he could respond but so others might say, "Hey, what are those planes doing?" But not a peep out of anyone.

08-10-2003, 11:02
ooc: Really, Resi posted a dozen times or something like that, completely ignoring:

1. Massive Reich attacks

2. Iraqstani Bombers

3. Der Angst Drohnes (Ok, i will just assume i know everything i need to know to stage an efficient airstrike... at least they were unarmed reconnaissance drohnes...))

4. Several others?

And i read through eight pages without problems. He could have done it with six easily enough.

Well, perhaps Ma-Teks rule applies? 'No losses posted after 24 hours (+ player posted other stuff) = attacking player posts losses?'

Anyway, i continue... lets begin the interesting part...

---

"Thats the data satellites and drohnes gave us." Lord Griffith stood at a window, cold as always, watching the grey sky above them.
"Well... so?" His second in command, Guts, looked at him curiously.
"We will strike. Not against allies or nearby forces, but against Resi itselve." The words were cold, showing Griffith utter disregard for human life.
"But... but... Any force invading Resis island will walk in blood! It´s own!"
"Oh... i have no intention of invading Resi."
"But?"
"We will bomb them. I think thousand tons of explosives per square kilometer is enough, dont you think so?"
"Ummm.. but... thats murder! We would kill up to 90% of anyone living there!"
"And?" Griffith cold, brutal eyes stared at Guts.
"Umm... i... i will order the strikes."
"Good."

---

Orbit above The Resi corp:

Six fleets where there, howering above earth.

Now, slowly, one by one, their fighters and bombers started from the shipbays...

1944 bomber, protected by 972 fighters (The other 972 ones are protecting the fleets), headed towards earth orbit... the ships where not too near, in 30000km earth orbit... slowly, the attack force came near...

Every bomber had 20 tons of explosives loaded... they would descend to 500km earth orbit, then a rain of 38880 tons of explosives would hit Resi´s islands... Resi Corp in General, and Resi City in particular were the aims...

Rain of death.

[ooc: accuracy, depending on weather conditions, is naturally horrible. 10% can be assumed. But then, it´s not intended as a surgical attack.]

---

Meanwhile, the three fleets that, together with coalition members, maintained the blockade, had fully emerged from the water... 972 bombers and 486 fighters started to hit The Resi corp coastal defences, while 486 more fighters stayed near the fleets, protecting them.

19440 tons of explosives, intended to smash anything that stood in the way of the coalition...

Every fighter carrierd a single, heavy missile, replacing half of their normal missile armament... this missile would automatically be fired at any active scanner system that could lead Resi air defences against the coalition airpower.

Although the chance it would happen was slow... the bombers, and the fighters with them, would reach an altitude of 80km, and throw their bombs from there...

High above anything else.

[ooc: Accuracy slightly better, i think ~ 50%.]

---

But the most important part was, of course, to take out The Resi Corporations own airpower.

For this strike, 1/3 of the entire DA airpower was used.

2880 fighters were protecting as many bombers, carrying 57600 tons of weaponery... missiles, actually, intended to be fired 400km from the Resi Corp coastline.

They were programmed to hit airfields, planes standing on the ground, facilities near airfields.

This planes, as well, would hit an altitude of 80km, and fire from there.

[ooc: Accurecy ~90%, way easier to aim with missiles.]

All three attacks were coordinated, so that they would hit one after another:

At first, the strike against the airfields.

Fifteen minutes later, the bombardement of the coastal defences

Again, fifteen minutes later, the bombardement of Resi city.

---

While the planes were starting, concentrating, The three fleets that had joined the coalition fleet opened fire to hit the coastal defences as well.

1035 guns opened fire, plasma, 10000 kelvin hot, hit the coastal defences.

"This is the real thing... Dantes inferno is just a bad joke." ~ General Kjaskar

ooc: I will take Resis next post, NO MATTER whats in it, as permission to go on.

I can imagine that in such a thread, you miss some things, but missing any attack is a bit of a joke, isnt it?

Anyone with deployed forces anywhere is free to attack me, however... regarding the orbital strike by the bombers i launched... i was the first one to deploy orbital forces, and i sincerely doubt that suddenly, some forces just come by and get in the way of my bombers without my main fleet doing anything.

Already two million of our noble People's Army move into postition, to form the first wave of the landing that will free the people of Resi from tyranny and oppression! They show their defiance to the enemy, clad in the uniform of the common man, to show our whole nation's disgust for the murderous tyrants of Resi Corp!

Going on the idea of turns then, this is what I did after all those pages back when I first stated my forces. "T" time is when Iesus began his attacks, so people who have reacted since then already can just assume this is the past a bit, since I couldn't get this onto this computer because the zip drive is dead, so I had to connect my unconnected computer up using a phone line, install AOL onto it and e-mail it to this computer. Just for this post!

T minus 42 days

Toby Pratt, Supreme Strategic Core Commander (SSCC) of the PrattCo Conglomerate Integrated Theatre Defence Organisation (PCC-ITDO) Command, Control and Communications Theatre Group (CCCTG), and Standing Vice Chairman on the Board of Directors, leaned back in his leather chair and puffed silently on his Goleta Plain cigar. The smoke drifted through the rays of sunlight getting through the top of the underground chamber that the military leaders had gathered at.

Actually, it was false sunlight, meant to make morale better in the new extended underground habitat zones (EUHZ). They didn’t need it to see, of course, with even the desk jockeys equipped with the latest in infrared and advanced optical sensing gear. Many had genetically enhanced vision, optical or even neural implants, and underground warfare was a part of basic training - right along with zero-g combat tactics.

“My Carrier Battle Group must be included in this assault, General!” exclaimed SCS Vrontack of the Orbital Operations Theatre Group (OOTG). “Almost three fighter wings, including the Type Twos, we can provide aerospace cover. And our destroyers and cruisers are the best in the fleet,” he added shamelessly.

“With all due respect to your orbital fighters, Subcommander, the Expeditionary Corps is more than capable for any air threats,” cut in SCS Layette of the 4th Air Corps. “And everyone is aware of the additional capacity our forces have to provide close support for ground troops.”

SCS Sodgard of the 7th Army Group didn’t reply to this, but felt like saying, I’m not aware of that, mister Layette.

“What I need to know, boys, is where best to concentrate the Deep Interdiction Squadron,” said SCS Franklin Colth, referring to the naval Hama battleships, and the six types of cruisers, frigates and destroyers.

“Mister Colth,” said Toby Pratt at last, breaking the chatter with his bellow. “Your forces will be placed prior to the assault in a position to attack the enemy coastline in two locations, Delta and X Ray. When it begins you give ‘em hell.”

Quietly, Colth replies, “Would that be hell with chemical munitions or not?”

Pratt thinks a minute, letting out another puff from his monstrous cigar, his yellow stained teeth dull in the dim, smoky atmosphere of the armored chamber. “Gas the cities and any secondary bioid targets. Don’t bother with the robot infantry; they won’t be effected by morale or the chem.”

“Can we briefly review the sequence of operations?” asks Murtin Beadwacker, the aged veteran with the bionic arm. Like his compatriots in the OOTG, Vrontack and Jubbins, he was still getting used to being on solid ground again after the zero-g environment. He was helplessly fascinated with the way the smoke curled when rising, compared to how a gas leak or smoke in orbit looked.

“Iesus Christi and his allies will make threatening moves toward Resi Corporation,” begins SSCC Pratt, now clamping his cigar firmly between his teeth as he talks, “And everyones forces will be moved to a close defensive posture with Resi’s territories and assets. In particular, if you can get within point-blank range of the-- oh, what are they called, Star Strides?-- the enemy airspace fighters. Simultaneously, the attack begins at oh-nine-hundred hours, give or take. I and the 1st Orbital Fleet will begin with fleet-barrage missile launches against the enemy ships at close range, aiming for a broad and even coverage of all enemy crafts. Projections for a two-minute initial engagement, and we have more than enough missiles to get them all. Several times!”

Here there was a low chuckle from most of the men. Pratt was working up an energy with his common-man-with-a-plan attitude. There were no disloyalties here, that was certain.

“Other weapons will be used as necessary. Satellites and other enemy vessels will be removed by the Second Orbital Fleet. Along with the attack we will transmit a message to our allies in the Reich. This will be paralleled to our own forces through MP1. There’s no chance of message interference, but we’ll use above-GovLevEnc quantum encryption nonetheless. The order will be given to the OOTG to move to a position over Resi Corp’s island and prepare for Distance Fire Support. We, meaning you, Murtin, will be supplying surface forces with Drones and Supermules from your MLG. Resi’s defenders will be given a statement warning them to, essentially, withdraw or die... I’ll phrase it differently, of course. With any luck we can save a lot of money in munitions and fuel.”

Pratt pauses here. Saving money? Since when did I care about that? You’ve been hanging around Bob too long.

“Sodgard’s Crazy Wing will be either stationed on Resi’s island, or based in transports waiting from very near Resi’s island, or likely a mix of both. Either way, when the ground attack begins, they will be surprised and overwhelmed. Both the OOTG and the AOTG will kindly provide aerospace cover. We will, throughout all this, be working closely with Reich forces-- this is very simple for our Devil’s Desert allies, and for the OOTG since many Reich orbital ships are the same types as our own. We will coordinate from the top our forces such that friendly kills are kept to a minimum. Finally, ground based bombers and orbital Opposition Assault craft will begin a general offensive if the Resi Corporation leadership fails to meet our demands.”

“What are our demands, anyway?” SCC Jubbins asks.

“Oh, the usual. Huge reparation fees, transference of Resi Corporation stock and assets into the Conglomerate, maybe use his island for a military base. Who knows,” Toby answers with a humorless laugh.

“I’ve downloaded MP1’s tactical schematics,” remarks SCS Ludo Gabbins. “Do we have mine authorization or not? Our intelligence says Reich battle plans include a naval blockade. Will we be sharing that information with Reich forces too?”

Pratt frowns. “Calm down, son, and yes. However, you’ll have to use your own judgement as to where and if to mine. We don’t want any friendly fires, remember.”

“Any other questions before we go over the MP1 schematics?”

TCC Vlad Borogard, naval commander, hitherto silent, perks up. He is stationed on the PCC territorial expansion in the Corporate Islands and has family there. “Sir, what are the chances of retaliation against Islando de Corporacion?”

Pratt is grim as he replies. “Strong. Defensive forces will have to be entrenched and prepared for the worst. We will bolster defenses as strategic needs allow, but for now our main objective is to overwhelm the enemy quickly and avoid a war of attrition. However, this is mainly for political reasons, as we would have no problems winning such a war.”

“And what happens when the elves want a piece of the pie?”

“They get some pie. There’s enough pie in Resi Corp to feed everyone.”

“And other hangers on?”

“They hang on, but your forces will be closest. In the end, we can all negotiate, because if they try to take more than their share of Resi, we’re in a position to turn it into a shining piece of glass in the middle of the Corporate Islands.”

“And then no one is happy, and then what, they’re going to wage war with us and our allies for a lump of glass?”

“Exactly. So no one wants that, and everyone knows that we would do it if pushed.”

“What if they push anyway?”

“Then they don’t push again, General.”

Lumbering quietly in orbit, cruising at a stately several kilometers-per-second, the Conglomerate space ships of the First Orbital Fleet have prepared. Their crews and officers have been thoroughly and effectively trained; they are calm and will follow their orders and their initiative. In the armored bellies of the modular, inelegant Santa Barbarian ships, thousands of weapons of death and destruction are stowed, ready to rain depleted-uranium and kinetic death on their targets.

Aboard the command ship, the pride of the OOTG, the Atmos Battlecruiser, SSCC Pratt turns another cog in the machine of war-- he is one of many, of an integrated, redundant network of command, oiled by the MetaPratt One computer-- and asks his sensors commander calmly if they have uploaded the targeting data into the missile command nodes. The answer is yes. Pratt smiles, and pops another load of chewing tobacco into his mouth.

From bases in the Santa Barbarian/Isla Vistan mainlands, over a thousand advanced aircraft from the First Air Corps launch and head directly for the Conglomerate territory in the Corporate Islands. They make no moves to conceal their movement.

The Reich has openly threatened to invade the Corporate Islands. The Conglomerate is sending more forces to defend its assets there. And to defend Resi Corporation.

At least, thats what the diplomatic messages say. The same thing they’ve always said when supplying troops to defend the Corporate Islands territories.

A secure message is sent to the Resi Corporations stated defenders and allies. Slagkattunger, Nano soft, Shing lo, Esamopia, Rastaban, DNS, Eris Kallisti, Wymberg, Emperor Corp. Ltd, Tersanctus and the rest. [OOC I know thats incomplete/out of date/etc. Rest assured it is sent to all Resi Corp defenders.]

&lt;Begin Transmission&gt;

The Reich, lead by Iesus Christi, with allies from Kalessin, Iraqstan, and many other nations, has begun their attack on our mutual allies in the Resi Corporation. We have numerous enemy contacts by satellite, mobile and ground-based CCCTG networks, approaching GeoSynch orbit over the Corporate Islands. Surface forces have approached within hundreds of kilometers of Resi Corporations territories, and the outer islands have already detected enemy scouts passing. The Santa Barbarian outpost, very near Resi Corporations’, is threatened and we are hastening our defenses. It is a shame we did not organise early enough to launch a pre-emptive strike on the Reich, so now we must hold them off as best we can. Please coordinate with our military commanders on how best to provide an effective defense.

Another message is sent, this time addressed to the military commands of the Resi Corporation allies, DNS and anyone else with orbital forces prepared, like the PCC warships, to defend Resi.

&lt;Begin Transmission&gt;

Reich attack is imminent. Vegana fleets approach Corporate Islands geosynch orbit, are armed, and are now hostile. Santa Barbara is now at a state of war with these Reich allies. All units recommend go weapons hot. We are providing defense in form of a contingent assigned for close support of Resi Corporation and allied orbital shipping and satellites, and a contingent assigned for distance support. We will fire when capable at incoming enemy forces.

Anyone with satellites will see more than a dozen GADTG army groups based in Santa Barbara begin to mobilize. Thousands of tanks are on the move. Literally millions of personnel are involved in the massive operation, including civilian workers and merchant marines, soldiers and pilots and officers and truck drivers. The First Air Corps having already left for the Corporate Islands, the Second now begins combat air patrol of the mainland. Hundreds of ships of all sizes fire up their reactors and put to sea. DAMOCLES regional defense program systems are alerted as well, with defensive satellite platforms and ground-based projectile and energy weapons. Strategic Forces are readied.

Santa Barbara is ready for any foes.

Aboard the Atmos, Pratt orders the computer to plot target solutions for the current data, which is fed from the global quantum network into the MP1 Node Complex aboard each ship. The dozens of PCC warships’ computers have coordinated the missiles they will be firing, in hundreds of thousands of scenarios in near-instantaneous simulations, have computed vectors and required force to eliminate enemy targets. Unknown to anyone outside of the system, they have chatted together and drawn up multitudes of angles of attack for concentrated fire distribution.

The ships make no threatening moves toward the Resi Corporation air-space planes within range. Indeed, they orbit, oriented toward the approaching Reich-allied forces in a show of defense. Inside them, like foam-steel rods, the Multiple Magnetic Autoloader Tube Systems (MMATS) silently and frictionlessly extend the launch area out, offering death to all who oppose. Missiles in the bays are not yet loaded, but when the time comes they will be able to load, on average, two missiles per second, per MMATS.

In the Atmos, a mix of over twenty thousand Standard Missiles, Greater Missiles and even the expensive Fusion Missiles, loaded with mixtures of chemical, explosive and armor piercing munitions, wait patiently for their long-awaited use. Throughout the fleet, thousands of missiles, billions of dollars worth, are ready to be launched within a space of a few seconds.

The ships are designed with multiple roles in mind. Right now, they have deployed on an Area Assets Defense (AAD) mission, which in all observable ways, is the same deployment as a Fleet Assault (FA) operation, or for that matter an Orbital Combat Patrol (OCP) mission or Fleet Defense (FD) operation. The ships move in a coordinated, but seemingly random formation, fluid and shifting as needs change.

Right now, they orbit in close proximity to the Resi Corporation crafts, territory, and have a clear view and range of many Resi Corporation satellites.

It begins.

Targeting the Resi Corporation ships, the OOTG opens fire with everything they’ve got. At point blank range, blanketing every ship they have detected [OOC: using The ESP (Extruding Sensor Pod) system, which includes direct-sensing microcrafts (less than 1 kilogram) with high-energy particle detection, low-energy charged particle detection, plasma detection, dust detection, magnetometric detection, electrostatic and electromagnetic 3-dimensional plasma wave detection. It also contains valuable equipment for remote-sensing capabilities including various optical imaging instruments, infrared radiometers, polarimeters, photometers, gamma-, alpha- ray, neutron, alpha particle, electron reflectometric spectrometers. And of course, active sensing instruments like synthetic aperture radar, radiometric altimeter, LIDAR, etc, mountable on a reflexive scan platform arm. The newer models include neutrino detection and pinpoint gravity field/wave detection. Whew!]

In one second, thousands of missiles fly out of the MMATS, accelerated to hypervelocity using advanced coilgun technology, further boosted by drives of their own. Guided by the MP1 system and its “children,” the missiles systems receive calculations and controls for attitude and articulation control, spin stabilization, three-axis stabilization, including all necessary and related subsystems.

At close range, with no warning , with every numerical advantage, the deadly barrage will reach its target in almost 1 second and continue for a full minute until Resi’s space forces are hammered into oblivion.

[OOC: I’m gonna just say that 1) your point defenses would have to be able to distinguish between friend and foe, within a fraction of a second. Otherwise, if you’re somehow suspecting this surprise attack, and your PD was prepared to shoot at PCC targets, then you would have already fired on my ships as they too are within point-blank range, having been placed there explicitly for your protection. 2) I really, really doubt anyone would have detected from any of the above what I just did ahead of time. I gave some routine messages alluding to the fact that our agreed upon enemy here, Iesus, is attacking, so our weapons were gonna go hot. Everything else, like the meeting in the beginning, is equally unlikely for you to have any IC knowledge of it. Most likely, OOCly too!]

A secure transmission is sent to Iesus Christi, the Reich nations and their allies.

&lt;Begin Transmission&gt;

We have executed our strategic plan, and have achieved surprise. At this moment the PCC has begun to fire on the Resi Corporations orbital and satellite assets as planned. The second contingent, a distance away from the first near Resi’s forces in orbit, will begin long-range fire of any remaining Resi Corp crafts after the first contingent has fired for one minute. To our allies in the Reich, and supportive nations allied against Resi, this is a reminder not to treat PrattCo Conglomerate forces as hostiles, and not to fire on remaining Resi Corporation ships until our first orbital contingent has gained a safe distance.

Ground forces are launching their main attack on the West Coast of Resi’s island, supported by our naval and air forces. We see Iesus has also launched an attack as well, and a bit earlier. No matter, our twin hammers will catch Jae Resi’s head in the middle.

I recommend our forces continue to cooperate in achieving our mutual goals. I am dispatching a message to those powers still allied to the Resi Corporation, informing them on our behalf that their forces will not be fired upon, if they withdraw from their defense of Resi and the Corporate Islands. I am also informing them that the Corporate Islands as a whole is not going to be attacked, but our target is Resi Corporation. If this is unacceptable please reply.

Once defeated, the administration of the chaotic Corporate Island of Resi Corp must be handled fairly and wisely. It is inherently dangerous to have so many forces, though allied, concentrated in any single area for too long. I trust that in our negotiations, it will be noted that this particular operation was essentially masterminded by the PrattCo Conglomerate with active and bold aid from our Reich, Devils Desert and other important allies.

At the same time, with clock-like efficiency, the combined surface assault begins. While Resi’s orbital forces are occupied with the OOTG and the attacking Reich fleets, the smooth-hulled trimaran warships gliding through Corporate Islands waters launch missiles of their own. Military targets on the Resi Corporation island are virtual magnets for air- and sea-launched tactical and cruise missiles. Though not as fast as kinetics, they scream through the air at varying altitudes, below radar and above. Faarston, Largi and Resi City are all targeted as well.

The four Hamas class battleships aim their massive 300 mm guns at targets up to 35 kilometers inland, using boosted semi-guided artillery shells, launching the titanic projectiles onto any targets they can reach. Shore based missile and gun batteries, air bases, robot forces, even war factories. Dozens of guided missile cruisers, destroyers, and frigates launch their attacks. Meanwhile, substantial forces are dedicated to detecting and defending against the Resi Corp’s submarinal fleets, while another force provides cover.

The rear echelon PCC warships idly watch as the Whispering Voices and Reich naval fleets and transports approach the doomed corporations’ island. On the decks, when they pass, several hundreds of the PCC crewmen gather on the railings to salute their Devils Desert neighbors, and Veganan, Iesus and Reichskamphen ships.

-
In the air, the Maritime Air Force Projection Squadron and the 4th Air Corps send Fighter and Bomber Groups, targeting Resi Corporation military aircraft and secondary ground targets; again, mostly military and some industrial facilities are chosen. Air Theatre Dominance (ATD) is now the mission. Hundreds of planes cover a wide range of area, the Bullwhip fighters eagerly seeking out enemy aircraft and providing cover for the bombers, naval and ground forces, hoping to take advantage of the few minutes of confusion the Resi Corporation human leadership would be in.

-

The 7th Army Group, nearly a quarter of a million men and thousands of the latest Gavel tanks in addition to the upgraded Enforcers, in place and ready, moves against Resi. The 16th-24th Air Assault Divisions, with thousands of troops in hundreds of ground-attack helicopters, set out on the short journey from one Corporate Island (with advance units from naval-based carriers just off the coast) to the south and southwest portion of Resi’s. They plow through the air at high speeds, protected from on high by orbital fighters, platforms, and allied aircraft, and from below by the Fleet Defense frigates, with the variety of anti-air weapons of the NOTG ships.

-
A transmission to all Resi Corporation’s allies, including but not limited to DNS, the Vortex Corporation, Slagkattunger.

&lt;Begin Transmission&gt;

Having carefully reviewed the options, we have ensured that the Resi Corporation will fall. It is time one corporation may speak against the atrocities committed by that organisation, no matter the cost to ourselves. We have allied with Iesus Christi, the Reich, and other members of the coalition sent against Resi.

However, this is not an unprovoked attack against the Corporate Islands or the Corporate Coalition. Rather, we are removing from a dangerous position of political power the Resi Corporation. Join us, or join us not, but we urge you to reconsider your alliance to the Resi Corporation before you send members of your nations to die for it. It is clear that, when faced with the overwhelming array of the coalition, including the entire Reich, the Devils Desert powers, and with Melkor’s and EOTED’s forces on the way, the Resi Corporation cannot possibly hope to stand.

Stand aside, and the coalition will not harm your people, nation or engage your military forces. We have no quarrels with you.

Sincerely,

[OOC: To summarize.

1. Some background. My leadership, having been deployed for some time for close defense of Resi, and not to mention leading and being the main body in the Corporate Islands Union Defense Force, have been planning the downfall of Resi Corporation with the Reich, Devil’s Desert allies, and Menelmacar. We’ve all got our reasons; for my leadership, its greed. Resi Corp is competition, and the Conglomerate has decided to be a coldhearted evil backstabbing bastard.
2. My forces have launched an all-out surprise attack on all fronts from point-blank range. They have also been planning this attack out. In space, the attack goes for a minute, and then half our forces withdraw, while the other hits Resi forces that remain from longer range. At the same time, Reich forces are doing their attack. On my end,
-Airborne troops are attacking near South Point, Resi City and the region to the west and south.
-Navy ships are bombarding everything with missiles and shore bombardment guns and patrolling the seas surrounding the island.
-Aircraft have begun to open fire on any Resi Corp planes they see (other than civilian aircraft). Bombers are flying with Iesus and Reich attackers.
-Space fleet has opened up on the many smaller Resi Corp crafts with a massive coordinated fleet barrage of missiles, both the slower moving but more accurate types, and the kinetic types. This is a point-blank assault here using the entire 1st Orbital Fleet. BTW, my ships are designed to excel in a rapid-launch, overwhelming first-strike capacity. Much like this one.
3. Also, I sold the Tiltrotor designs and specs to Iesus Christi. So yes, he can definitely produce them. I got them long ago from Resi directly, and I’m just gonna assume that my engineers aren’t monkeys and that they could reverse-engineer the thing over all these years.
4. My leadership communicates with the anti-Resi coalition, coordinates some things at the strategic/diplomatic level.
5. My leadership informs Resi’s remaining allies that we won’t fire on you if you stand down and not fire on us. We’re just here for Resi.
6. Sorry, Resi. Nothing personal, its just what I’m doing IC. I was thinking of maybe getting some sort of CoRP where Jae signs himself into the PCC, becomes a Board Member of the Conglomerate. His company might be retained, but there’d be all sorts of interesting intrigue what with all these nations howling for your blood. Could be interesting, think about it...

This would be the first day of "Operation Crucial Victory", The Reich Streitekräfte slowly maneuvered into position, still out of gunningrange from the Pro-Resi coalition and orbital bombing. This would be tough. Even if the forces that worked against the enslaver would be strong , there was massive resistance both in space and on the ground. Maybe he could pull out some tricks from his sleeve that could make this easier...

At Sea

It is the fifth day in the hold of Iesus-class Transport #3711, inofficially renamed The Martyrdom of Saint Alan by the men in its holds. Brother Captain Malcolm (Malcolm 77814 to be precise, but lets us dispense with the niceties) approaches two men of his century engaging in close a combat drill. He muses as the two men struggle, hard bare sweating chest to hard bare sweating chest. Good technique, though Brother Corporal Mark is a bit slow for knife fighting at such close range. And I would have thought Mark's genes better than that. Perhaps he will have no more sons after all.

Malcolm schools his features to dignity, not showing his profound sadness at a friend of such glad spirit not leaving sons to celebrate him. He is in no hurry and so he waits until his men are done, and stand aside. Smiles and courteous nods are exchanged - this is not an army that perpetuates some feudal class society, but a brotherhood of equals based on respect and love.

The ship rumbles about him - smell of machinery and men, the clicking of Century 2:4 doing weapons maintenance. He frowns slightly - that man appears all too joyful attaching the incinerator module to the top of his kinetic weapon. He will have to speak with Brother Captain Andrew of Two-Four about this. "Liberating the soul of the sinner is the soldier's second geatest joy", true - but not a visceral joy as in the act of love. And the rifle is not an extension of the penis.

He comes onto the deck, allowing himself the joy of breathing salt air and setting himself a penance as any good officer should. The Kriegsmarine crew avoid him. Poor discipline, though he can understand their nervousness - he is a foreigner to them. Controlling his reaction to the cold he endures the wind chill factor. Landlubber, I remain. Well, I will show these warmly-dressed sailors endurance rather than shivering weakness.

As he stands at the rail he flexes slightly, looking out on the grey sea. Brothers to his right... no, starboard. Brothers to port. Deadly graceful defensive cruiser of Eurusea - brave Eurusea, of such determined people that they go to war armed with a puny carbine or submachine gun, wearing civilian clothes! Determined Eurusea, whose troops march into battle filled with such purity of purpose that they neglect logistics, knowing that they will fall before they starve! Pure Eurusea, lit by the light of God and Iesus!

"Heil Eurusea! Heil Iesus! Heil God!" Malcolm's voice is a battle-bugle, and even the standoffish Scottan men are captured. Their untrained voices shout Heil! and their arms rise up, a poor reflection of his brawny, golden one, bred for fifty generations to reclaim the perfection of Adam.

"Heil purity of purpose! Heil purity of the soul! Heil God!" It is a perfect moment of beauty, and then disaster strikes. A gout of steam from the defense cruiser's stack...

Sailors running to and fro...

Fires... melting metal... the aft ofthe valiant defender of the REICH torn up from within in a great unholy flaming gout of unclean fire...

Malcolm watches aghast... and then the alarms wail and a Scottan voice speaks.

"Extreme radiation hazard. All nonessential personnel below deck!"

In the following hours Malcolm learns terrible things. That the heroic Eurusean ship had fallen to cowardice, to treachery, that the leaders of Resi! hated Resi now! had damned the souls of their obedient serfs by sending them on a suicide mission. And he learns that the order to go below had not come quickly enough.

He is Mark's equal now. He will have no more sons. He cries for the noble Euruseans, and for himself, and only Mark, old friend and lover, can keep him from despair. Soon enough he at least stops crying for himself... but there is no weakness in shedding tears for an ally.

But there is still hatred, and Malcolm is becoming no better than the man of Two-Four.

He will have revenge.

The Pilot of the Covert Crawler signaled to an I.M.P.A.C.T. Opetrative to activate the SORO V2's and went back to waiting for the signal that had yet to come the pilot sat thinking as to what he should do. Our orders are very clear he thought either rescue people or assist Resi by sabotageing the fleet above us... he looked out into the dark waters of the extreme depth and turned on the passive sonar 13,000 feet abopve them sat the Der Angst fleet (just chose randomly) allready begining its assualts on Resi the pilot turned around and looked down the sides of the craft 10 533mm torpedo tubes ran down both sides of the nearly 125 foot mostly organic craft.

((OOC armament note: of the 20 non-reloadable tubes 16 are filled with Mk 300 Supercavitating ADCAP Torpedos, the remaining 4 tubes are filled with special deep-presure sub launched Tomahawk Cruisemissles carrying FCG (Flux Compression Generator) warheads (a very powrful EMP weapon) end note))

the pilot turned down the tube presuure to 5% (100% tube pressure means the torpedos would shoot out like a bullet in this case there beign gently pushed out) the outer hatches opened and the torpedos drifted point up due to modifications(a small air bladder) to the Mk300 series. once they had driffted about 100 feet above and 500 feet to the west (with the current) of the craft a large burst of compressed air from the rear of the torpedo brought it up to speed to begin supercavitation as the main engines roared to life the massive ship killing devices nearly flew toward their targets at over 250 Kph useign GPS guidance and satelite imagery they corrected their paths due to current and ship movement [about 70% accuracy but they are too expensive to use very often] the crew below could only pray and wait hopeing the delayed fireing of the weapons engines would conceal their location.

((targets: 9 (3 each) are raceing towards three of your carriers, 6 (2 each) are heading towards three destroyers, and 1 is heading towards what ever ship has the nearest loudest "ping" in other words what ever ship would be the closest to discovering them). supercavitating torpedos usually carry enough force to pirece single hulled ships relatively easily bu the Mk300 also carries nearly 1000lbs of explosives so even double and triple hulled ships have things to worry about... its really is a shipkiller))

Gunship escort was neatly deployed from all three fleets with mechanical precision. Sweeping out to the fore of the gravship formation, the gunships joined with Raven escort to make for a powerful fighter screen in front of the fleets. any missiles coming from Resi or any military assets thereof woud have to travel past the chaff systems of some 100 Ravens per fleet, as well as another few dozen gunship PD arcs.

The fleets began to climb as they approached the Resi theater, to put the more important ships [transports and the like] above and behind the combat gravships, so any artillery/missile strikes would have to sneak past the massive formations that guarded the troops. 2 million men, along with supporting armor divisions and mobile artillery, awaited the landing as the fleets commenced heavy gauss bombardment of the shore and any enemy naval assets between them and Resi.

Missile operators stood at the ready, waiting for targets to attempt to engage. Pilots watched their scopes anxiously for enemy craft, as squadron after squadron of Raven escort and Chronos VTOL fightercraft prepared to clear the decks to reinforce what they already had in the air.

It was night in Resi Corporation, and the The moon was full, and the stars twinkled in the sky, casting their gentle radiance over land and sea. Then, thunder rolled across the heavens, and the moon and stars were swallowed up by dark, swirling clouds. Out at sea, the waves began to rise, crashing against the shore with unbridled rage. The ocean itself was covered in a thick blanket of impenetrable mist. Then, gigantic shadows began to appear in the depths of the mist, like mountains rising up from the waves. With inexorable slowness, these monstrous apparitions began to move towards the shore, and the waters seemed to part slightly before them, as if to ease their progress, while the winds, as if in fear, flew away from them, pushing them onwards, and not daring to resist their movement.

These terrifying mountains of shadow were ten in number, in aspect like great floating palaces, their towers stretching up towards the now-invisible heavens. They sedately swept forward towards the shore, and as they reached land, their great doors opened, and from them emerged a column of warriors, all clad in black leather armour, wielding that most traditional weapon, the AK-47. Rank after rank poured outwards in complete silence, until nigh-on two-hundred-thousand warriors had emerged, after them followed ten tall cloaked figures, under whose garments the unmistakeable outlines of swords could be seen, and beside each strode four wizened, hunched creatures, their features hidden within cowled black robes. And then, as the final figure strode out the gates of the final barge, all ten, with a terrible wail, swept out to sea at an insane speed.

Lord Commander Aurelius lounged backwards in the form-fitting leather chair of the communications suite of the HCCS Ozymandias, his lazy eyes drinking in the visual feedback that was being sent to him from all areas of his fleet. As was customary, sitting a little behind him, two to each side, were the leaders of the militaries of the fiefdoms that had come when called. He pursed his lips slightly as he viewed the forces that were following. All aboard the Playbus, he thought to himself, and laughed out loud.

He had done that a lot, as if privy to some secret joke, and it was a true test of loyalty that those gathered - the Caliph's Zulkir Moahi of Murderous Tendencies, the leader of the Omiri tribe of Quiet Laughter, the third in command of the Ordi Templi Sancti knightly order of Endless Regrets, and Ciolan, fae lord of Cwmbhéir Sleáth in Hushed Breaths - that they had not spoken about it.

He turned his chair to face them, arranged as they were about him. His face went abruptly cold, unnerving after the smirk he had been wearing not a moment before.

"Now," he said - voice a little harsh from sea salt air, a slight drawl that served to denote him as aristocratic. "We are attacking here ... and here. At Jain and Unus, with the majority of the forces. Nai Isle we are sending pacificators to, along with a third of the total ground forces. Fleet position will be maintained ... here. The fleet will be split with the ground forces, because the passage from Jain to Nai isle is brief - we'll be able to provide air cover from just ... here. Anything more serious and we can split our attention between the two."

He stopped briefly, brought up a display on an overhead projector. "Alright ... firstly, once we're in this channel, we're going to cover it with mines. They're remote detonated and can be commanded from the fleet, so we won't have friendly fire incidents. Oh, and they have dead man's switch ability - in the event of terrorism or simple attack, they will remotely travel towards the nearest moving, non-Voices target. Secondly, the nano machines; thirdly, the robots. We're responding to both of these problems via a variant of the project Nephilim - not only do the creatures live from extracted copper and iron, but they carry organisms that live on nanobots. Because nano engineering is so (comparatively clumsy), and nanobots so limited in function, we are confident and indeed trial runs have demonstrated the efficacy of the Silvered Nephilim. Should the worst come to the worse, we have several other Nephilim variants ... although, use of such a potentially hazardous weapon will only take place in the event of Melkorian hostility."

Seeing he held his audience captive, he continued. "Our submarine fleets are scouring the waters and sea bed. Nothing. Resi must have, for once, felt good enough to secure the allies of the future. If only I had time to read the papers ... but anyway." Yes. It seems that the Atlantis submarines will be close to the capital - more than that, satellite imaging hasn't picked up. However, since they're under attack, that makes sense. So ... we avoid the fighting on the mainland, and try to take over these islands. I'm sure one of the islands contains something worthwhile."

OOC: Seeing that Resi's done a long roleplay and said nothing in response to the satellite scans, I'll assume that there are no airfields or organised forces on either island, and that the lack of sighting of submarines in the area is due to the fact that there are none.

"Unfriendly aircraft trying to enter Resi airspace...."
Commander Von Lipzig grinned
"excellent. Open fire ..and have a fighter squad pick at the survivors.."
From throughout the blockading fleet, sea to air missiles target, and fire on any craft violating the Embargo...No warnings are given, only swift assaults
*OOC:as much as I dare/care say about craft crossing our battle groups like they are crewed by blind monkeys*

Condor Flight, over 150 Heavy bombers with over 90 escort fighters take off for central targets in resi. This would be carpet bombing with more than a fair share of incendiary munitions chucked in..
As with the Der angst attacks accuracy wouldn't be the highlight of the event, but the expected high death toll and chaos would please the Allied commanders.

Hand in hand with these civilian/industry targeted campaigns goes the more sensible/tactical constant suppression and attacks on the landing areas and there support networks, lead by Elite veteran air units, these attacks care nothing for civilian dead, only victory matters. Wave after wave of aircraft, ignoring losses fly against the resi defenses.

A Iesus Me1000 fighter , smoke purring from its engines come to symbolize the pride and patriotism of the Reich...For even as it went down, the pilot Lt John Halt refused to eject, instead piloting his craft into a resicorp defense array. His last words screamed over his radio to air command would be replayed again and again throughout the Reich along with the footage of his heroic act provided by Iesus warcam .
" GOD IS GREAT! HEIL IESUS! God is Grea...."

As zero hour hit...and the loyal allies of the coalition of liberation struck from within Resi Corp, General McClean, supreme commander of Iesus forces ordered the landings to begin, hundreds of thousands would land , reclaiming a kingdom for God. The combined battle groups would swamp resi....
"Give 'em hell boys! Yeeeehaw!" The Captain waved his Ak-47 above his head the Landcraft rushed towards land "GOD IS GREAT! Legio Martyrs always moves 'em! "
The Captain look at the sky, over head flew almost countless aircraft flew support for the landing...missles flew low over head at the resi devil...even navy guns where opening fire giving the landing support...
"Yeeeeeeeeeee haw! God is damn great!"

A brief flash of light winked at the outer edge of the star system, and six dreadnoughts and their escorts appeared.

"go to battlestations. All ships form into wall formation, and hold position." Fleet Admiral Harris ordered.

The immense 6.5 megaton cigar shaped hulls began to slowly form into a wall, 2 ships high and 3 ships wide, with the smaller hulls of attendant destroyers and cruisers sweeping out ahead of the behemoths. Energy weapons were charged and missile tubes were loaded with laser warheads. Recon drones were launched, and their overpowered impeller drives sped them into the inner system, passive sensors recording engine signatures and weapons fire, and transmitting it back in bursts to the fleet.

And the fleet waited.

OOC: I picked this location because it should be out of sensor range of most ships, and for now my expedionary fleet is going to sit here and monitor the battle, and will only fight in self-defence...for now.

EDIT: Can someone TG me what ships are in orbit above Resi, and the sides they belong too?

*Moveing at a silent 20 knots ((undetectable unless your actively using sonar)) 7 Kallistian subs move in on the Iesus ships firing on Resi soil. Already armed and ready, they've been in wait for a while, ready to strike at the right time. It may seem random, but thre is always a strange order to Kallistians that keeps them on top of things when they need to be. Keeping a distance of about 60 miles from the Iesus ships, each sub fires all eight harpoon anti-shipping missles. Hitting anything they can detect as an "enemy" vessel. ((I dunno how many ships you have fireing there... you didn't say. so they're aiming at whatever you got)). As soon as the harpoons are launched the Kallistians break radio silence briefly*

"Cheetahs move alpha23! no beating around the bush people! GO GO GO!!!"

*The sub comanders barely needed the word, and don't wait to see if things sink or swim. Moving at 20 knots they dive deeper and scatter in differant directions. By the time anyone is close enough to try and scan for them they should be long gone, and heading for cover*

Only the Captin and Officals High in ranks knew about the mission, if they were discovered it'd be an act of war..

From the shore, dispite being 20 miles out, the swarm brought a chill to the hearts of the inhabitants of Faarston. The Harvestors had all dropped to sea-level, their massive tenticle-like arms dangling mere feet above the waves. The Seninels had formed into a huge cloud at 500 feet, which resembeled a swarm of hungry locusts. Above them all, hung the ominous forms of the Overlords, their sheer sides apparently puling with barely restrained energy. As they drifted closer, the Overords unleashed their primary weapon - the massive energy cannon that sat atop their gargantuan frames. The bolts struck the shore with the force of a cruise missile, sending debris high in the air, vaporizing both concrete, steel, and flesh. The bombardment had begun, and as the cloud broke and the Sentinels raced inbound, the Battle of Faarston kicked into high gear.

"Um sir?"

"Yes Alpha?"

"We're being attacked by ewoks."

"ehm, we're being attacked by what?"

"Ewoks sir"

"... Think they would give up if we agreed to give them a few dozen KM of old growth forest?"

"I'll relay the offer."

"Alright in the meantime launch the Red Hawks and fire off the scanner probes. Shift the forces around into 3-2 offensive posture and 1 reserve posture. Prepare a sheild overloader barrage for the first attack, then a missiles strike."

"Understood"

The LORD OF ALL EWOKS was this time pacing around his personal rooms, his stubby little legs working fast as he let the Feng Shui arrangement of the plants calm him. It took a little while before he felt safe enough to return to the bridge.

When he did, he sat in the nice, soft foliage that was his command chair and looked at the reports. Weapons active, fighters launched the report said - with further details such as co-ordinates listed belief. He wasn't very interested in this, three dimensional co-ordinates in space hurt his head when the tech ewoks added things such as gluon array data.

&lt;chitter&gt; said one of the ewoks sitting inside a log with an assortment of computers. ["My lord, incoming transmission."]

&lt;chatter&gt; he replied. ["Put it on screen then you stupid moron. Do I look telepathic?"]

The picture of a laughing DNS official came on screen. "Ewok fleet, we offer you a few dozen kilometres of old growth forest if you surrender!" The man continued chortling.

The bridge crew cowered away from the LORD OF ALL EWOKS as his massive inferiority complex kicked in and turned into PURE RAGE.

&lt;CHATTER&gt; he screamed at the screen. &lt;CHATTER CHATTER CHATTER&gt;
["WE ARE NOT MARKETING PLOYS! YOU WILL DIE FOR YOUR DISRESPECT! I WILL HAVE PENETRATIVE SEXUAL INTERCOURSE WITH YOUR MOTHER BEFORE I FEED HER TO MY PET BANTHA, AT WHICH POINT I WILL ENGAGE IN SUCH CONDUCT WITH YOUR SISTER AND YOUR PET CAT!"]

The LORD OF ALL EWOKS then turned to his cowering crew.

&lt;CHATTER! CHATTER!&gt;

They hastened to obey. The 'Big Log' and the armada behind it vented ionised particles in localised areas, and then engaged the DNS fleet. The very small Ewok ships sent out killer drones, which did nothing but hunt down the sensor drones and fighters that had been deployed by their enemies. The battleships and capital ships, and the 'Big Log' itself - kilometres of fury incarnate in a slightly knotty and wooden form - opened up with their massive arrays of Disintegrators: horrific weapons indeed! Meanwhile, the carriers and capital ships launched 'Twig' class space interceptors, designed to shoot down missiles - and, if necessary, enemy fighters.

OOCly stuffage:
Disintegrators
Vanguard weapon system developed during the last years of Endor Prime. An outgrowth of Nuclear Damper technology. Unlike meson guns, from which they are descended, Disintegrators are much more subtle in their manipulation of the strong and weak forces. Mesonic strong force, which translates between protons and neutrons in the atomic nucleus, is actually a side effect. The main strong force occurs between quarks within nucleous particles, through a force messenger particle known as a Gluon. Disintegrators suppress this Gluonic strong force, and can break down coherent material into its most essential elements. Gluons don't really take account of shields, given that shields are not solid (that would be armour). However armour strength is irrelevant, but it can take a few seconds of concentrated fire to core through very thick armour.

Killer drones
Simple, not very maneouverable, no armour or shielding. Mount lasers with small batteries. Primary targets are sensor drones, secondary targets are enemy fighters.

Twigs
Highly maneouverable and fast system interceptors, the Twigs mount MASERS that fry electrical systems - crippling things that rely on such to act, and with minimum power. Especially good against missiles and small fighters. In order, they're targetting ... missiles and small fighters.

Numbers: Ewok Pride fleet is very big, as befits a giant nation with a massive defence spend. The 'Big Log' is nigh on twenty-five kilometres long (a lot of that's the internal forest though containing the Last Trees of Endor Prime), the other cap ships are close to five kilometres, battleships just under a kilometre. The ships mount one disintegrator per kilometre or fraction thereof, approximately. They have missile tubes but the missiles are still being readied.

If you do not acknowledge your fellow roleplayers and report the losses from the several attacks against you, I have been asked by several of those involved against you to help ensure the integrity of the conflict you seem to be ignoring at the moment, and roleplay out the attacks for you.

Though I intend to be fair, I imagine you do not want me to do this. If that is true, you need to post and continue your involvement by the end of tonight.

Menelmacar
09-10-2003, 09:05
Menelmacar, at last, was about to enter the war.

The thirty vessels of the Eighteenth Menelmacari Imperial Gravitic Battle Fleet, currently in orbit seven hundred miles above the earth's surface, shifted their orbit slightly to the north, which would take them directly over Resi City.

Warlady Ilmarë nos Finarfin was on the holo with Prefect Serendis.

"You have new orders, Ilmarë," Serendis said. "And you're not going to like them."

"Oh?" asked the Warlady. "You're not pulling us off this attack, I hope."

"Lau," Serendis said with a shake of her head. "I'm expanding your role in it. You are no longer to stop at precision tactical bombardment. You are to place ground troops into the capital and seize it for Menelmacar yourself."

"You're right, I don't like it. Might I ask why the soldiers I was told would not be endangered, are being endangered now?"

Serendis frowned. "You may. The Lady has concerns about the integrity of some of the 'allies of convenience' we have found ourselves with in this matter. She believes there is a betrayal in the works."

Ilmarë nodded. "I see. How will ground troops prevent that?"

"By seizing assets we were previously to trust others to seize on our behalf, of course. Now, your time grows short. You will have access to whatever intelligence resources you require in order to plan your invasion."

"Very well, milady," Ilmarë replied. "Eighteen Command, out."

The image of Serendis seemed to explode into whirling shards of light, which reformed into a rotating Menelmacari insignia, which in turn shifted back to the tactical display.

"Move us over Resi and commence tactical bombardment," Ilmarë ordered. "I want military targets destroyed. Then the troops will prepare for an orbital drop."

The crew went about the business of carrying out their orders. The ships slipped silently through the void, centering themselves above Resi City... and then, again silently in the vacuum of space, streams of crimson light seared forth from the many cannons of the fleet. Blazing down through the atmosphere, the blasts were aimed at anything within fifty miles of Resi City capable of mounting resistance against a Menelmacari attack.

Well... With 'Fully emerged' i originally meant 'slightly above the water' (No, they are NOT Gravships &gt;.&lt; Just with comparable strategic opportunities *cough*), but i assume some larger waves bring the torpedos high enough... or whatever... i admit i wasnt entirely clear.

Considering the depht your sub operates in, you can indeed hit my carriers (Have to change battle formations in the near future), except the fact i have no 'carriers', instead i have battleships with small groups of planes on them :P Well, i assume you meant them.

The plasma bombardement continued, the target area slowly changing towards the inner parts of the island, after the coast was practically bunred out by the 10000 Kelvin hot plasma.

Suddenly, a signal. Two, three... 13. They came near. Very fast. Too fast.

The high command hadnt yet established efficient defences against attacks by supercavitating torpedos, however, they realised it quick enough.

However, the Unity drives didnt load fast enough, they stuck where they where...

Defences were activated, baits fired into the sea...

One explosion. A second, a third one. Two more, and, finally, a last one.

Silence.

Didnt work properly. though Max, pilot of the Battleship Rose im Wasser.

Seconds later, the three torpedos hit, the explosions destroying the outer hull, the second... the third.

The metalloorganic hull wasnt armoured, a flood of water dispersed into the ship, flooding it when, with a telepathic cry, the ship hit the surface of the sea, sinking...... the doorways were quickly sealed, however, it was to late... Fighters tried to escape the hell that broke loose, pilots jumped in, but it was to late...

To late...

Together with the Rose im Wasser, the battleship Kleid aus Rosen, and the cruiser Wanderlust and Geometry of Shadows sunk, the Geometry of Shadows, right before it was finally consumed by the sea, was even able to launch all remaining planes it had, eight transporters, its pilot was the only one who survived.

Slowly, the sea changed its colous, from deep blue to white, when the 'blood' of the ships reached the surface...

There wasnt much they could do...

Kjaskar ordered the fleet to stop fire, and too take positions about ~ 10 meters above the sea. It wasnt as good a position, as the coastal defences could now easily hit them, but then, said coastal defences were already destroyed, or so it seemed.

Lots of people are already stacked up to be fighting and since there have been no responses from Resi (other than a power-rangers style RP with Roania)... the people who started this war (Iesus and co.) haven't had a chance to get anywhere... there has been little or no movement on a semi-gigantic space battle happening overhead and seemingly somebody pops up on the borders of Resi sea/land/space every 10 minutes. Thats not a dig at anyone, its just that we should let Resi and the original people have turn 2, before everyone else gets their first turn.

OOC: Id like to point out, in case anyone missed it, that ICly, I've been planning this war for months. (OOCly about a week) And that I have had a large number of troops within spitting distance of Resi's island, for months. (Plus, the Corporate Islands Union Defense Force, which last I checked I still lead).

Now I know this is NS and no one bothers to RP mobilization, and everyone just magically ALWAYS happens to have an invasion force handy, fueled, supplied. But before pretty much all of these other attacks, mine has gotta come first along with Iesus/Reich/DevilsDesert/Menelmacar, which are the only other ones I know who've done any IC planning and prepositioning.

Unless you can just happen to mobilize your forces against Resi, and move them into the Corporate Islands from halfway around the globe, faster than I can switch my targetting computers to hit Resi from a few kilometers away (a few seconds)

I just have the awful feeling some people are gonna forget it... I suppose my mile-long post that no one wants to read doesn't help.. ah well.

Edit: I got fleets bombarding the shores of the entire west coast of the mainland and airborne assaults headed toward the capital, along with plenty of fighters and bombers. Remember, these guys are coming from another corporate island, and not, say for example, Lodoss.

I'm going to give Resi the benefit of the doubt, and extend the deadline even though he hasn't posted tonight.

He will have a "no-excuses" deadline of 2amEST friday (IE tomorrow night) to post losses for the myriad attacks against him, and start furthering the conflict. If by then he has not posted, or has just posted replies to his allies again, I will then carry out my previous warnings, and declare his losses for him, to further the conflict.

To delay as long as he has, when he could have easily replied last night is unfair to all involved, but I assure all of you, you will not be forced to wait more than one more day.

"Heil Freedom!"

The infantry are first, moving quickly and methodically across beaches ripped to shreds by artillery. They flow inwards, pressing ahead, calling in naval and air support fire as needed. Every man a hundred kilos of whalebone and rawhide if he is an ounce, clad in combat gear and well armed. Soon, the first vehicles roll off and add their weight of fire... and now it becomes support fire.

"Heil Equality!"

Napalm and incendiary cluster munitions and overpressure weapons are a large part of the choirs' support capability. Fire, to burn the sin from the sinner. And many of the soldiers carry a special version of the Wehrmacht-standard carbine/grenade launcher combination, with the grenade launcher replaced by a bullpup incinerator.

"Heil Brotherhood!"

What could have been a costly landing becomes an efficient advance as the defending mechanisms do little, and are isolated and reduced to scrap. Perhaps shoddy workmanship is the reason for the numbers, perhaps lack of leadership for the apathy. Now two full army groups are deploying through one Reich landing zone, and the vast numbers of engineers present in IL organization toil and toil and toil.

"Heil God!"

OOC: Lasers are photonic, and don't have the subatomic particles that would transmit the force of a disruptor. And my sheilds are made to deflect particles, so most to any of the transmission methods described wouldn't work.

And I Ignore your broadcast from my ship, the laughing part was unknown to you, and the transmission would have been text-only because the Apperition's sheilds were up(preventing the bandwidth needed for a A/V transmission).

OOC:In a strange time warp known as "fluid time" one part of the story is told again - as agreed with Iesus Christi and Vthnaar...

IC:

The three hypersonic bombers waiting on the tarmac, in Resi City, engines purring. Vrakian marines spilled out forming a perimeter to make sure that the Power banking staff get on, and that interlopers are shot. Panicked banking personnel rush to the transports while forklifts (or whatever variation is in Resi) quickly load up the 'banking equipment'.

"Come on people! MOVE!", roared the Sergeant. While overseas staff are a bit more hardened when it comes to danger, it is the first for many of them to be part of an evac. Especially considering the circumstances. Finally the last straggler is aboard.

"Go go go!"

The doors close and the planes rapidly turned to taxi. One...two...three bombers are soon up in the air, but hardly alone.

"Breep! Breep! Breep!" warned the Flight Aircraft Navigation System.

The lead pilot looked in horror at the read outs. Fighter jets. Many fighter jets.

By Bok's maw...

"Hawk 1 to Hawk 2 and Hawk 3. Bogeys in sight. Climb! The only advantage we have is speed! Get high enough and then engage the scramjets! MOVE!"
The two other planes respond grimly, "Copy Hawk 1."

The planes began to climb, building up speed...

Maybe Iesus could post this on the first page?

Excellent. I think we better put it here as well.

IC:

Under cover of the night and heavy ortillery and artillery bombardment the might hovercraft fleet sneaked away from the main fleet and started to move towards its target: Nai Isle. Speeding away at over 70 knots and without making a sound on Sonar or radar the heavy camoflaged fleet were going to attack from the flank and create a beachhead on the isle. Thousands of men would die, even if Resi were taken by surprise, but Nai Isle was an exceelent place to land a large fleet on and from there move to the mainland of Resi Corp.

At the same time V4 rockets struck at military installements on Nai Isle, the goal was to keep their heads down until the swift Hooverfleet could outflank them and attack from behind.

After a long meeting and negotiations with the security council, Pyrrhus established a Protectorite over Eris Kallisti.

"In the event that Eris Kallisiti should need military aid for the sole purpose of defense for its Nation, Phyrric will provide such aid and resouces. There is an immediate availablility of 450,000 troops to be deployed and sent to Eris Kallisti for stationing in Eris Kallisti and shall not be active in this conflict unless an invasion and/or and attack takes place on Eris Kallisti.

The 1st, 3rd and 4th Battle Fleets have been deployed to the waters of Eris Kallisti to keep open all free trade routes between Eris Kallisti and her allies with Phyrric and all his allies. The Naval units are for this purpose only unless the Protectorite has been violated.

This is not inteded as an act of war, nor intended as a participant in the war, but to keep the 'special interests' of Phyrric active and prosperous."

*Message from Fuhrer of the Reich to Lady Sirithil*

Sirithil, I commend your willingness to assist in a noble cause, but surely you must know that the insertion of Menelmacari troops which will remain in Resi will be a source of future conflict between yourself and the Reich.

It is my most furvent hope that these things can be dealt with. I ask you in the name of peace to make your attack elsewhere.

His Royal Highness,
Will Thompson II

*SDI HQ*

"King Will surely has waited far too long to attack." the Hauptmann sighed.

"Doubt not the King." retorted his aide. "He knows what he is doing."

"I hope you are right," the Hauptmann replied, "I fear that things may go awry..."

At that moment, the Comm officer of the HQ ran into the Command chamber holding a piece of paper aloft. "Tellegramme from King Will!" he yelled.

"What ever orders they are, ensure that they are carried out!" the Hauptmann yelled excitedly.

"The order is to launch a V-5..." the Hauptmann's aide read in a state of shock. "That thing can wipe out an entire city. It is the size of the friggen space shuttle...and almost impossible to stop!"

"At last..." the Hauptmann rejoiced, "a better test of our weapon."

The V-5 Non Nuclear ICBM was close to the size of the space shuttle. It had the capacity to wipe out an entire large city like Resi City in one strike without leaving behind any radiation or long lasting contaminants. It was launched the same way a space shuttle would be and was equipped with a secret defense system whose actions would engage only when attacked. It had only been used once before in the British Imperialism Campaign and it had effectively leveled the Capitol of BI.

It was misting lightly when the heavy liquid fuel rocket climbed skyward with the massive V-5 atop it. Paint chips flung off as it broke through the stratosphere and into space. It leveled its trajectory towards Resi City. The destruction in such a highly populated and built up city would be immense. Deaths expected to be in the hundreds upon hundreds of thousands. The V-5 broke away from the Rocket and Fired its own engines, doubling its speed and sending it in towards Resi City. It broke through the atmosphere at a high speed...

OOC: Lasers are photonic, and don't have the subatomic particles that would transmit the force of a disruptor.

Yes they do. Gluon transmitters can be transmitted on photon carriers. By definition, if a thing contains a photon, it contains subatomic particles - particles without mass, but with energy - and it's the energy that transmits them. And disruptor? Please, I'm not Star Trek. I'm Traveller - it's far harder scifi than Star Trek. Or Star Wars, I just liked the idea of ewoks being bitter from being used as marketing ploys. It's disintegrator.

Shields are made of (comparitive to solid matter) a few tiny things. Gluon disruptors would chew through them as if they weren't there. If the density of a shield was enough to absorb significant gluon influx, then by definition it's not a shield but armour.

And I Ignore your broadcast from my ship, the laughing part was unknown to you, and the transmission would have been text-only because the Apperition's sheilds were up(preventing the bandwidth needed for a A/V transmission). The real transmission is as follows. (Not saying it was a bad transmission/reaction, but it is not what the AI sending it would have said)

Be more specific.

IC:/Transmission to Big Log/
&gt;Before we engage in battle we are to make one last chance for peace.
&gt;Are there any resources(land, forest, technology) that could make you
&gt;reconsider your postition? We do not wish to fight you, but mearly
&gt;defend Resi from the warmongering invaders that attack it.
&gt;If battle is indeed inevitable, then may we both fight with honor and
&gt;respect.
&gt; -Alpha, Primary AI of the Apperition.
\end transmission\

OOC: The Red Hawk fighters are controlled by AIs, and have a fairly strong set of sheilds for their size. They have around 12 missiles, 4 laser cannons, and 1 Ion cannon.

I'll dredge up the stuff for the other ships, but be warned that the information is in picture form. Sorry 56kers.

How in the name of all that is techwanky do you fit a shield generation device on a fighter, let alone an AI core? Either we a) pull apart each other's tech (I'll probably win, since you claim to have shields and AIs), or b) we go on and accept each other's tech. Plus be more specific when you make transmissions. I'm not psychically able to know what you sent, especially if it differs from what you actually said.

ICly:

"This is the 'Big Log'. Your defence of the abomination of capitalism that is the Resi Corporation - an organisation which uses marketing ploys - is an offence in the eyes of Endor Prime. Prepare to die."

&lt;at which point, the attacks above take place&gt;

This is a reminder to Resi, as his last action according to his nation's page was two hours ago:

If you do not acknowledge your fellow roleplayers and report the losses from the several attacks against you, I have been asked by several of those involved against you to help ensure the integrity of the conflict you seem to be ignoring at the moment, and roleplay out the attacks for you.

Though I intend to be fair, I imagine you do not want me to do this. If that is true, you need to post and continue your involvement by the end of tonight.((OOC: you do this and I'll officaly fire my ignore cannon at you...
&lt;begin rant&gt;I check each of my nations once a day to quickly deal with the issues then I log off... this -doesn't- mean I have enough time to check the threads I'm active in and respond to everything. I'm sure this is what Resi is doing.
Resi is going through some personal things right now.... leave him the hell alone untill he can respond. This goes for EVERYONE
I'm sick of you guys treating this game as if it were the end of the fookin' world. Its a GAME! get over it! Can't deal with other people having a life outside the game? Then don't play with them. I'm sooooo tired of this.
Honestly I think this thread should be locked untill Resi comes back and can respond to things. Hell, I sent him a TG a while back that he still hasn't gotten a chance to respond to... I'm hoping it even got sent because its extreamly important for the RP, and I'm sure most of you have filled his TG box with crap like "where the hell are you" and "when are you gonna respond" etc etc etc.
All you guys (people against Resi) started this war... not him. Don't bitch about it when he doesn't have the time to deal with this because of OOC reasons. Now if he had started this war, then yeah, you'd have the right to be a little irked (note I said "a little"). But he didn't so get over it, and get over yourselves! This is not a big deal. Sit down, and shut up &lt;/end rant&gt;
*sigh* I'm tired of people complaining like this, and I'm tried of people making me yell.... I don't yell, I don't like to yell. I consider myself to be an extreamly civil person. I don't resort to childish namecalling (unless I call someone childish) and I hate being rude... most of the ooc I see on here is rude one way or another with the exceptions of a few select people. Why don't you guys try and play nice. Remember: everything you say OOC effects people ICly even if they don't wanna admit it... I know it effects me. I will fire the ignore cannon at people who are rude OOCly to me or my friends. ICly is a whole other story, you can be a compleat dickwad ICly and I'll love it as long as you stay civil OOCly. THAT is my #2 rule for RP ettiquite. Rule #1? RL ALWAYS COMES FIRST. Don't like it? Go play somewhere else.... Hopefully this is the last post I'll have to make like this.))

To those who have read the thread, I will probaby be staying at a friend's house until Monday, then moving out after that. Luckily, said friend is in fact in posession of a computer with an internet hookup. So you all might not be spared from Lord Melkor's Wrath after all 8) ]

OOC: RL interfered with me posting this earlier. I will not post again until Resi replies.

IC:
The four figures moved quickly through the throngs of waiting people at the International Airport. They were equipped with nothing more than a small suitcase, passports and tickets to Bandonia and Defacto Russia. They each saluted each other the sign of The CLA: hands folded as if in prayer then a shift of the right palm resting it between the thumb and index finger of the left hand. Such a fluid graceful movement much like the operations they carried out. They paired off...one man and one woman in each group, getting on their respective flights. It was highly doubtful that they would see one another again...

Earlier that morning they had been called before Commander Aurora. The Allies of ResiCorp must be taken out. The evils of Western Capitalism had no place on God's earth. They had been trained for this moment and did not ask any questions. When Commander Aurora dismissed them they were ready. They had waited their entire lives for this moment. What joy to be able to carry out The Lord's work. Their reward would be eternal life.

Flight 236. Destination: &lt;&lt;Insert Bandonia's capitol here&gt;&gt;

Alexi and Magda found their seats and settled in. They calmly watched as the other passengers, mostly business men and women, boarded the plane. Alexi and Magda made small talk...
" So what do you want to see first when we get to &lt;&lt;insert capital here&gt;&gt;?"
"Whatever you want, luv. Maybe The Capitol building? You know how much I like history."
"That I do."

To the other passengers and flight attendants they looked like the average young couple...possibly on their honeymoon...
Some of the older passengers smiled at them as they passed down the isles.
Ahhh to be young and in love again...

It would be another 2 hours before they "announced" their plans.

Flight 929. Destination &lt;&lt;insert Defacto Russia's capitol here&gt;&gt;

Marie and Joachim followed similar procedure as Alexi and Magda. They settled in their seats, made small talk and waited for their moment of glory....

The passengers nor crew had no idea that the CLA operatives were carrying two small vials...to the joy of The CLA the tests had proven quite effective...and unpleasant.

((OOC: Bandonia and Defacto Russia's are actually parts of the Resi Corporation, and serve no other purpose than to serve us. They are to us like Gual was to Rome after they conquered it. To bring your seperate, independant nations into this is entirely out of line.
