In order to help make things a little clearer, along with help from indifference I have compiled a bit of information as to the history and basic technology in Silver One. Though if there are any questions, definitely let us know.

[SIZE="4"][B][CENTER]Important Facts:[/CENTER][/B][/SIZE]
[LIST][*][B]High Council:[/B] The factions forming the High Council are similar to royalty; currently there are fifty members who actively serve on the Council. Each faction has a main leader and four others who also serve as a member of the High Council.
[*][B]High Council candidate:[/B] Before someone can become a member of the High Council, they must first serve as a candidate for the position for several years. Candidates are chosen when it is clear that a member is going to either retire or is ill, like in the case of Erica Kendrick who is terminally ill since a candidate was chosen to eventually replace her before she was arrested for being the leader of the Resistance.
[*][B]Representatives:[/B] They are officials elected to represent each sector and deal with the High Council on their behalf. Though politically they have a lot of power and make decisions for the sectors they represent, the High Council still has the final say in any decision that is made.
[*]In addition to beginning to explore space, genetics are slowly developed and the Versilan?s begin to improve their race and slowly expand their lifespan until all Versilan?s live about 300 years. To give you an idea, Here?s a chart comparing them to what they would look like if in human years:

[CENTER]0-16 develop much the same as humans do.
16-20 similar to 15
20-175 similar to 20
175-200 similar to 30
200-225 similar to 40
225-250 similar to 50
250-275 similar to 60
275-300 similar to 70
Most Versilians pass on somewhere between 275 to 300 years old. [/CENTER]

[*]There are 14 inhabited sectors in all. Sectors 7-12 are the ones that have broken off from the rest of the Empire. Earth is located in sector 13 and is still under Versilan Rule. Sector 14 is a military outpost and top research facility. [URL="http://img86.imageshack.us/img86/5154/mapsu7.jpg"][COLOR="RoyalBlue"][B][U]Chart[/U][/B][/COLOR][/URL][/LIST]
[B][CENTER][SIZE="4"]Events leading up to civil war[/SIZE][/CENTER][/B]
[list][*]The Versilan Empire conquers Earth.
[*] The resistance successfully mounts an attack of a major supply depot in sector six, destroying the crystals that are essential to all Versilan technology as well as damaging the fleet in the area due to the distortion waves caused by destroying so many crystals at the same time.
[*]The resistance successfully mounts another attack, this time in sector four, completely destroying the crystals that were growing on the planet.
The resistance reveals that the High Council is doing research to mentally alter the races that have been conquered and turned into slaves. Versilan law forbids mental alteration.
[*]The resistance destroys the main facilities in sector seven for manufacturing spaceship parts and equipment.
[*]Erica Kendrick a member of the High Council is arrested for being the leader of the Resistance.
[*]Proof that other than members of the High Council and their families all Versilans were mentally altered from birth to make them indifferent to other races is revealed.
[*]The High Council is put under house arrest as the military seizes control and puts the Empire under Martial Law while an investigation is conducted to determine which Council members are guilty of high treason. Two are eventually executed for their crimes.
[*]It is revealed that when the first race was enslaved, some of them ended up in the families of four of the factions that rule the Versilan Empire. Though it happened well over a thousand years ago, the people are divided. Some believe that it?s time to free the enslaved races while others still hold fast to the belief that they are superior. [/list]
[B][CENTER][SIZE="4"]How the military works:[/SIZE][/CENTER][/B]
[list][*][B]Basic military:[/B] Deals primarily with planetary defenses on the ground as well as for the planets where the enslaved races are. Commanded by Zach.
[*][B]Space forces: [/B]The part of the military that serves on the battleships and fleets of the Versilan Empire. This is the force that Fleet Admiral Stevens commands. Stevens is also a member of the High Council.
[*][B]Elite military:[/B] Deals primarily with the security for sector one, the main home world as well as for the Council Center. Those in the Elite military outrank those of the regular military and the space forces. Other than the main commander for the basic military and Stevens who commands the space forces. Currently the one in charge of all the Elite military forces is Elite Commander Ketch Dakar.
[*][B]Elite Specialists & Task forces: [/B]Elite specialists are the ones who handle the most sensitive assignments through out the Empire and answer to no one but the High Council. The Elite Task forces provide direct security for the Council members, though on occasion so does the Elite military as well. Like the Elite Specialists, they only answer to the High Council. Commanded by James.

Also, they do outrank all other military and security forces. Even their main Commanders like Stevens or Dakar. Except for Stevens since being a member of the High Council means they answer directly to him.
[*][B]Internal security: [/B]Deals primarily with security for high-ranking officials like Darren Anderson, the current shipping expert for the High Council and other politicians on not only the home world but other sectors as well.
[*][B]Special Investigations:[/B] Specializes in checking out cases that baffle local authorities in different sectors. They take care of cases that are beyond local law enforcement and yet don't require the expertise of the Elite forces.

Now there are other security forces as well, but they are usually local to each world or city. Those that I have listed are regulated by the High Council. They govern themselves for the most part, based on regulations set by the High Council, but any huge decisions have to be approved by the Council, like appointing Stevens. The previous Fleet Admiral could choose a replacement, but it still had to be authorized by the Council.[/list]
[B][CENTER][SIZE="4"]Basic Technology:[/SIZE][/CENTER][/B]
[list][*][B]Transportation door technology: [/B]It's not like what you would see in say Star Trek as things are not broken down and then put back together again at the new location. It's more like folding space in that you walk through the door just like you would any other door. It also means a much greater range and things being in your way, like a planet doesn?t limit you. To give an idea, using it to send someone as far as a place like Mars would not be out of the question. Recent developments have resulted in doors that open above a person, move down and thus transport them without the need to physically walk through.
[*][B]Crystal Technology: [/B]special crystals that are grown on various worlds power all equipment. The crystals co-exist with an alternate dimension, which is speculated as being the source of the energy they give off.
[*][B]Hand Held Computers:[/B] Most Versilans use a type of small powerful hand held computer for everything. Officers are given a unique model with greater capabilities.
[*][B]Space Travel: [/B]All space ships travel via hyperspace.[/list]
[B][CENTER][SIZE="4"]Ship Types & Classes:[/SIZE][/CENTER][/B]
[list][*][B]Super Dreadnaughts: [/B] Just under 10,000 meters long and 1,000 meters high these massive ships are equipped with just under 200 disruptor lasers and 40 disruptor missile launchers. With hundreds of decks these ships are the flagships of the Versilan Empire, carrying a crew of approximately 200,000 personal.

Each one is also equipped with 20 smaller transport vessels for carrying troops to the surface of a world and with dozens of smaller fighter craft, the LAC Carriers for defending the ship.

Only five ships to date have been built, Creator, Conqueror, Intrepid (destroyed in battle), Crescent and the Eclipse now renamed to Liberator by the New Alliance forces.
[*][B]Dreadnaughts: [/B]Just under 1,200 meters long and 350 meters high these ships are the mainstay of the Versilan military. They are equipped with 60 disruptor lasers and 15 disruptor missile launchers. The ship has 75 decks and a crew of approximately 35,000.

They are also equipped with 4 smaller transport vessels for carrying troops to the surface of a world and a dozen of the LAC Carriers for assisting with ship defenses.

There are literally hundreds of these ships; ones that have come up in the story so far are the Crimson. Current classes in use are the Furious and the Ambuscade.
[*][B]Light Dreadnaughts:[/B] Just under 1,000 meters long and 300 meters high these ships are the next mainstay of the Versilan military. They are equipped with 40 disruptor lasers and 10 disruptor missile launchers. The ship has approximately 50 decks and a crew of approximately 20,000 personnel.

They are also equipped with 2 smaller transport vessels for carrying troops to the surface of a world but do not have any fighter craft.

Like the Dreadnaught, there are literally hundreds of these ships throughout the Versilan Empire. Ships in the story so far, Tempest. Current classes in use are the Mount and the Starcrest.
[*][B]Messenger: [/B]Just under 800 meters long and 200 meters high these ships are the forerunners of the High Council?s agents. They are equipped with 50 disruptor lasers and 20 disruptor missile launchers. Nearly three fourths of the ship is given over to engines and heavy defenses as well as full automation. As result the ship can be run by a single Elite Specialist or the specialist along with two crew members. It has approximately 15-20 decks depending on the class.

The newest and most powerful class is the Star class using the newly developed perfect crystal system. Classes before that in order have been the Crusader, Defender and the Harrier class. All classes before those have been retired and dismantled. Previous messenger ships have each one been slightly smaller than the next class but not by much.
[*][B]Heavycruiser: [/B]Just under 600 meters long and 175 meters high these ships are the mainstay of both the shipping and local policing agencies of each sector. The ships basic design can be fitted with 20 disruptor lasers and 5 disruptor missile launchers if for use by the local law enforcement. If fitted for shipping only 10 disruptor lasers and 3 disruptor missile launchers are allowed. They have approximately 30 decks though it varies depending on whether or not it?s fitted for hauling cargo.

Crew also varies depending on the level of automation, up to 1,000 for local law enforcement or less than 50 for shipping merchants. Each ship is equipped with four standard shuttles. Current classes in use are the Linnet and the Culverin. Older retired class still in use is the Endure class.
[*][B]Lightcruiser: [/B]Just under 400 meters long and 150 meters high these ships are also used for both shipping and local policing agencies. The basic design can be fitted with 15 disruptor lasers and 4 missile launchers for local law enforcement; or with 8 disruptor lasers and 2 missile launchers. They have approximately 20 decks depending on whether or not it?s fitted for hauling cargo or for law enforcement.

Crew varies depending on level of automation, up to 750 for local law enforcement or less than 25 for shipping. Each ship is equipped with 2 standard shuttles. Current classes in use are the Aria and the Javelin class. Older retired classes include the Knight and the Avalon.[/list][B][CENTER][SIZE="4"]Sector Snapshots:[/SIZE][/CENTER][/B]

I'm glad to see this finally go up! :catgirl: I like how you've detailed the major events, even if I was in the first one, keeping all that straight will be much easier with it simply listed here. Also, I love the age chart you provided, that's a nice touch. Now is it a typo that you've listed Stevens as a member of the High Council instead of a candidate? Or is that a status change with the next part? And if so will that mean that Sandra will also be a full Council member? Not that you need to tell me, I'll find out soon enough I'm sure.

Anyway, I only have one question before I put my sign up in. And that relates to William the current leader of the Resistance. Will I still be controlling his character? Or will he go back to being a NPC like he was before? And if he does, since Kim was executed in the first one would it be alright to create a new character? Either way is fine, I'll stick with William or create a new character to have along with Daniel if needed. Anyway, once I know that I'll get that sign up in. :catgirl: It's perfect timing with Survivor coming to a close.

Oh and that new banner and avatar of yours is fantastic. indifference did a beautiful job. I love how vivid the colors are.

[COLOR="goldenrod"][FONT="Comic Sans MS"]Whee! :catgirl: It's up! *dances* I have to do my homework first, but I'll be sure to get my sign up done in the next day or two. Hehe and I agree with BKstyles, I like the aging chart you provided. As well as the short list of events.

It's gonna be fun! And like my mom said... the timing is perfect. :catgirl: Oh and I agree... those banners Crystia, the one for yourself and Beth... They're so vivid and colorful! And the textures... I love those textures![/FONT][/COLOR]

So Stevens and Sandra will be full Council members, that ought to be fun. Heh. Anyway, I must say I'm glad to see this up, with Survivor wrapping up, it really is perfect timing. That and I've missed this. I know I'm looking forward to outright war breaking out. I've already got all sorts of ideas running through my mind as to which direction you are going to take with it.

Anyway, I love the way you did the underground thread, I trust you're going to add to sections as needed? Regardless, I'll be looking forward to the main thread going up. :animesmil

So thanks for the suggestion. :p[QUOTE=GuyYouMetOnline'']Okay, I've signed up. I'm just using Kiva this time, and not Daego. He may show up, but if he does, it'll be as an NPC. I decided to try a second character in the first Silver One, and I did it for the duration, but I really prefer using a single character, so that's what I'm doing for this one.[/quote]Perfectly fine by me. ^_~ And it brings up a good point, anyone returning is free to not stick with all of the same characters they had before. So just having a single character works great.

And that applies to you too Kathy, if you wish to continue with William you can, if you wish to create a new character that's fine too. Or if you simply want to stick with just Daniel, that also works. The plot points do not depend on people sticking with the same characters.

[/QUOTE]Yes, this time instead of updating as we go along I'll simply edit the first post so any and all information of that nature is easily found.

So William is once more an NPC. And with Kim dead... I'll just stick with one character for now and hold off on having a second one. Besides with William off somewhere else as you put it... Daniel's going to be quite busy assuming the main liaison position for the Resistance.

  • 2 weeks later...
[COLOR="RoyalBlue"][FONT="Lucida Sans Unicode"]Alright, I've updated the first post with a cast list and a link to each individual sign up. Because if you're like me... I'm lazy and hate having to go and hunt for something. I like having it all in one place or at the very least all the links to the info in one place.

Anyway, like I said in the Sign Up thread, this will be open through the weekend and then next week we'll get things going. You'll know since in addition to the thread going up I'll be sending everyone their first objectives. :catgirl: Though if you have any questions before we get going definitely let me know.

[B]EDIT:[/B] Alright as you can see the main thread is up. Everyone has been sent their objectives. The only thing I need you to wait on is for Aaryanna_Mom to post. Just as I set up the starting point for those on the side of the Empire, she will be setting the stage for the Resistance. I have already discussed this with her so that post will go up later today.

If there are any questions by all means send me a pm or simply post here. Those who were in the last installment already know that you are welcome to put your own ideas in with the basics that I sent you. Those are only main events not the only ones, so definitely feel free to add ideas of your own. That's what made the first installment so much fun, all the great stuff everyone came up with. :catgirl:[/FONT][/COLOR]

Alright it's up. Just let me know if I got any of that wrong and I'll fix it. :catgirl: I rather liked that surprise since I was not expecting the Resistance to actually have one of the more powerful flag ships on their side. Also, I know you said I could choose the names, but if you don't like it, I don't mind changing it to something else.

To make things a bit easier I have updated the first post with a section on the basic warships. Obviously there are other ships like merchants, transports, shuttles, etc. I only listed the main ones that have come up in the previous installment. [/FONT][/COLOR]

[COLOR="goldenrod"][FONT="Comic Sans MS"][IMG]http://img398.imageshack.us/img398/6427/thcoolrr3.gif[/IMG] I love the information for the ships. Hehe. I always figured there was a huge difference between the flagships and the battleships, but I wasn't thinking that it was [I]that[/I] big of one. So that's good to know since it changes how I was thinking of the ships and thus how I would post about them.

Anyway... I also just had to spam the underground thread since I'm glad to be a part of this again. That and I can't wait to have Crystal clobber Vallon and drag him to sickbay for his checkup! Hehe. [/FONT][/COLOR]

[SIZE=1]Hey - just wanted to say that I'm really excited about being a part of this. I missed out last time and it looked like kind of a big deal, so I'm glad to be part of this.

I've made a post regarding my status on the crew of the [I]Liberator [/I]- I assumed that since Aaryanna_Mom didn't mention the name of the head of security that I could just make one up - which I did. If I've overstepped at all here please let me know and I'll make amends.

Again, thanks for the opportunity - I'm looking forward to working a lot closer with all of you - you are all extremely talented writers.

EDIT: *slaps self* must stop calling it the Resistance and start calling it the New Alliance...

Sorry for being so long winded. Heh, it was hard to condense all of that meeting into just one post. Anyway... *pokes Beth* I'm beginning to think that Darren is never going to not be picked on by either Jared or Stevens. lol I just laughed and laughed when I read my first objective.

Though for Stevens to take advantage of both of them foolishly not revealing Resistance members in the past makes sense. and writing up Kerstin's response to all of this is going to be fun.

You are so right Aaryanna, I'm glad to be a part of this again too. :catgirl:

[COLOR="RoyalBlue"][FONT="Lucida Sans Unicode"][quote name='Blayze'][SIZE=1]I've made a post regarding my status on the crew of the [I]Liberator [/I]- I assumed that since Aaryanna_Mom didn't mention the name of the head of security that I could just make one up - which I did. If I've overstepped at all here please let me know and I'll make amends.[/SIZE][/QUOTE]Not at all, in fact it reminds me to explain that to a certain extent, all NPC characters that people deal with directly are open for you to name yourself. Those who were in the last installment already know this and it didn't not occur to me to explain it to the rest of you. So the name is perfect. ^_^

Rach... I think it is a given that Darren is going to get pestered by either Stevens or Jared. lol As for your post length. That's another thing, long or short... I have no real preference since I know that objectives are going to result in some being longer and some being shorter. So whatever works best for one's current objective is fine by me. :catgirl:

Now I know it looks a little quiet, but Crystia already hinted at it in her post. The first sector where the Empire is going to strike, sector seven. So very shortly, things are going to get quite busy and once a few other tiny things happen, I'll set that in motion. Especially now that everyone is getting a chance to settle in and get a feel for how their character is going to fit in. [/FONT][/COLOR]

[COLOR="Indigo"]It seems that we missed explaining the time experienced when it comes to traveling between sectors Beth. Anyway... Just a heads up for everyone. Travel between sectors is not within a single day. Depending on the target it takes between one to two weeks. Being precise is not a big issue, but going to sleep and waking up in the next sector just isn't going to work inwardscream since it will put you totally out of sync with everyone else and rush things too quickly.

My apologies that we forgot to clarify this point. The idea of having travel time is to help make it so others don't have to run and get their posts in to match as far as the actual days go. For example the Liberator is going to be traveling to sector eleven, taking approximately two weeks. So the idea would be that it took you a week to get from sector eleven to ten and then another week to get back. If that does not make sense let us know and we'll work something out to help it be more clear. [/COLOR]

[COLOR="RoyalBlue"][FONT="Lucida Sans Unicode"]You are so right Crystia. >_< I did forget to explain the time involved in space travel. My apologies everyone, but Crystia is right, it takes more than simply leaving a sector and arriving in less than a day. It is about one to two weeks depending on where things are located.

Instead of having you change your post inwardscream I'm going to place the timing as happening about a week before everyone else's post since that will keep it from being too out of sych and won't require any editing on your part. If that's fine by you.

From now on I'll be a bit more clear on those time frames when writing up people's objectives. I totally spaced it since the others already know that. [/FONT][/COLOR]

[size=1]My first post will be up tonight. I have to change it a bit due to the objective being altered, but I don't think it should be a problem.

I'm very excited to be a part of this project, and I apologize for not getting my first post out sooner. Ragnarok (and a few other things in real life) have been more than distracting, but I'm very committed to participating in the RPG and telling my story.

Great posts so far everyone! :whoops:

If I wasn't clear enough, the fleet is now on it's way for sector eleven, my understanding from what Beth told me is that new objectives are going to be sent to everyone soon. Including the orders I referred to in regards to your character GuyYouMetOnline and your character Blayze.

And though I've got a very good guess as to where we will be striking first, I'll just wait until I'm officially told. That way... If I'm wrong, no one will know! lol Especially since I was so horrible at guessing anything right last time.

[SIZE=1]Hey guys - just wanted to apologise for the awful quality of my last post - my brain = fried at the moment. I promise I'll do better next time :animeswea

I kind of left it up to you how you want to deal with my character and the other one I mentioned in my post, Aaryanna_Mom. Let me know if there are any problems/issues that need straightening out.

Introduced the change and yet didn't immediately launch into the next part. ^_~ Also, if that's your idea of bad... o_O I must be missing something since I didn't see it that way.

Anyway, everyone has their new objectives except for you inwardscream, I'll get that to you later tonight. I had it written up and my word program crashed, taking it with it. XP I have all my plots already written up, but I tend to write out the full objectives as they come up since I tailor them to match how things have been going. So once I'm a little less annoyed with the program crashing, I'll redo it and get it to you. [/FONT][/COLOR]

[COLOR="goldenrod"][FONT="Comic Sans MS"]Hehe, I had way too much fun with that post. I'm getting the feeling that Vallon is going to be rather interesting. Especially after he beat up poor Pheonia! Mean! XP Anyway, if I got your character wrong, let me know BKstyles and I'll fix it. *pokes Beth* Why? Just because I can! Why else? :catgirl:[/FONT][/COLOR]
