    • Support the spread of the Grymlan's galactic hub infrastructure on Melfynus



    Spoiler: News and Rumours

    • Following through with their intents to establish friendly relations with their neighbour in the Simulacrum, closed doors between the Melfynians and Mier Formicas have the former, with much fanfare, welcoming the the first of their neighbours to Melfynus for a survey to set up an embassy on the icy waterlogged planet. It is hoped that the two peoples would be able to better understand one another to better cooperate as they advance in the galactic race. The details of their treaty however still remains unknown to the rest of the general populace.
    • In order to appease the traditionalists and naysayers, Rundhrul and Meyls both powered by their excitement of the opportunities it would bring work tirelessly to spread the idea that the Grymlans' hub on their planet will be great for their own place in the galaxy. At least it would be better for the various clusters of Melfynus, some unreachable as they work towards their own Rastar's interests, to be able to coordinate for the planets interests better. Some Rastars have already taken the opportunity to get minihubs of their own for a "trial run" to better spread their responsibilities towards their planet and people.
    • Kimdt starts an initiative to send interested Melfynians to friendly if not allied powers to learn of the other cultures, people, language, etc. This has been fully supported by Rundhrul who says "we need to take our own fate, no, our destiny into our own hands without the interference of the Ancients!" Rundhrul especially has put efforts into recruiting linguists and some tech nerds for this endeavor.
    • While much too far for their opinion to matter, the Melfynians led by Rundhrul did not miss the opportunity to admonish the reckless actions of the Rothuun towards the Sisterhood with the leader making the heroic Borch the posterboy of the movement; the scene of the Harkan trashing the bulls' former leader in the face being replayed over and over as it was spread throughout the galaxy with the message "the uneducated and the unprepared shouldn't try to rush their way into something they know nothing about." In order to show their support for the only entity they felt were now their best shot at reigning in the threat of the core, the Melfynians sent two clusters of volunteers to assister the Sisterhood while also specifically making it a point to show that the Rothuun may be in for another shocking surprise should they persist with their aggressive actions.

    The Kamasati Pantheon
    The Next generation of Dreamers

    High Dreamer Xasarath


    Actions

    1:[MILITARY] Equip Prator Xamarin (1 unit) He has an affinity for the machine and metal. When he arrives into battle he can infect systems and cause ships to convulse under his thoughts and given enough time murder whoever is within leaving the ship a mere husk. He had been equipped with staff of Wyse this lets him focus his his mind and speed up the process of cracking the shell of defensives ships possess.

    2:[MILITARY 5] Unleash Prator Qain (General) 8 All Prator are as powerful as one another, there may be slight variants but there is no arguing each is a magnificent specimen and the epitomy of psychic truth. The will of the gods rest in these protectors, but what makes Qain more "effective" then his counterparts is a very strange and near useless ability on the surface of the planet. While he can use his psychic abilities to float and forment shields of energy to defend themselves once on the battlefield he convinces EVERY enemy that before them is a mirror fleet of themselves. He wields a psionic duplicate of the enemies ships. Its so convincing that should one of these phantom ships kill the true crew they believe they are dead and so turn off their own minds in shock. This is why he has been equipped with Armor of Sarun it is their most protective suit and buffs the existing defensive measures so he can focus on eliminating

    3:[PHILOSOPHY] Convert The Unified Public Trust Capital E7 SUCCESS With the approval of the UPT this group of dreamers are met by the Kamasati. To show deep respect to this new friend and ally in faith the Kamasati bring with them a powerful psychic. A Xix level Kamasati arrives and begins to teach the rather complex philosophy of their once planet centric beliefs. The arrival of the gods is one of triumph as they promote themselves using the technology of the UPT as they deem it to bring all under this central ideal.

    4:[PHILOSOPHY] Convert M5 SUCCESS These simple beings are dream children and must be led toward salvation so they may one day become gods. Establishing a colony here is the first step to saving them, and that means creating a center of true learning.

    5:[MILITARY] Invade M5 1 unit (2 General Avatar of the Dream king) The Kamasati are not invading! They are saving Dream Children from mediocrity. They will arrive and a single voice will call out into their minds. A psychic truth that is inevitable and undeniable. "Your gods have arrived, we have come to save you! Do not resist we will do you no harm. Your planets are now under our protection!"



    Nonactions communique
    Commlinks: We inform our fellow pantheon the UNIFIED PUBLIC TRUST that the Kamasati delegation has arrived to aid in your evolution of idealogy. If you still support our landing on your surface please inform us now. (Verifying support for conversion!)

    The Federated Churches of Origin's End
    - Kamasati arrive via the psych ships developed to house individual members of the godhood. Emerging from the pod they reach out with their minds looking to connect with leadership. "We have very different ideologies but we seek mutual understanding, your idea of grace has an air of elegence we will not deny even if we feel we could improve your movement. We wish to formally sign a defensive pact and discuss how we can keep our faiths from colliding violently. The forging of a formal treaty would please the Dreamer gods of the Kamasati. We also feel having a strong bolstering force against the ideology known as the one would aid us both."

    - The Guild-Empire of Nyx Push for contact.

    - The Gelean Republic They remain neutral.

    Dream Children News
    - The Dream children are too young they do not understand what they have heard. Some view it as a sign of us. Another sign we are on the right track.

    Mount Vispim- We watch the Dream children of Moigan from on high. The first large villages are starting to appear across the surface of the planet. We count 102 locations with more than 500 residents. We are proud of our children and we keep our whispers to a minimal for now as they are incapable of understanding yet.

    Addendum:
    No major change. They have built a temple of uncut rock where they place nourishment they sorely need for themselves. We inform them they must consume it themselves in our whispers and think of us while they do so. It will forge a connection. We really just didn't want them wasting food. Starvation remains a problem.

    Mount Kdoim- We weep for the Xawaq. They have experianced many wars in the past but this is the largest and we hear them dying in our minds. It is painful to know that they are too young and misinterpret the will of our words. When we speak to them in their minds it makes them believe they are even more righteous and that they must be right. Currently 3 nations are embroiled in constant conflict... We know we must not interfere but it hurts us so to hear their minds scream. They did nothing with the whispers coming from our dreamers. Such is the way. We will continue to watch.

    The war continues. The war might soon end one race has adapted a new technology proving effective... They fire large arrows via an item they call a ballista. It is carving through their own kind and creating fear.

    Actions for Round 3 (Rolls)
    • The long awaited age of exploration is upon Celestia Enterprises, though it begins on a very different note than was anticipated. The Black Hole, dubbed 'Prosperity's Ruin' consumes Celestia at an ever-increasing pace. The first of four of the most major worlds in the entire region is evacuated. 'Chien,' lead food producer for the corporation, is unfortunately lost to the void... And with famine starting to set in and billions of homeless, it seems that a new home is becoming more and more necessary. Streams and shows publicize near everything - And any support is naturally welcome.

    • [Military] Declare state philosophy: The One!
      As religious unity seems to be approaching, a new contender makes their faith known - And a talented diplomat has their back. The eastern neighbors of the Enterprise presents their own faith, and talk of codifying something incredibly official is abandoned until the two sides can come to a decisive conclusion. The administrative effort is instead spent improving and equipping Zier's native military with FTL capabilities, doubling the size of the nation's current standing army.

      Tavey Brightspanner floated infront of project GiftBasket in a space suit, intensely concentrating as he finished painting the flourish to the end of "Upup your Assbutts" when his comlink crackled to life.

      "Tavey, I have some concerns about this craftprint." The voice was of Buli Linemaker, lead craftmaker and organizer for the project. "Talkytalk arrays near central hub have been fixrigged as zapprojectors not talkyvox. Also, bay twelve is armstashed with bigbang bombs."

      It was true that on any Grymlan that upgrades, retrofits, fixes, and experimental tech often got folded into the final design of any project regardless of if it needed it or not. "Well, Rothuum are bigbig aliens, I figured we splurge on bigbig bombs."

      There was a groan from Buli, "You dimbulb! GiftBasket goes to Melfynians, not Rothuums!"

      There was some thoughtful silence from Tavey before he asked, "Is there a difference?"

      "Yes!" There was an audible slap over the comlink as Buli facepalmed. "Melfynians friendlyfriends, they need maxenergy talkytalk array, not lazerdoom death array!"

      "... oh..."

      "yes-yes. Lookhear, we delay launch, and you and your craftmakers disarm Giftbasket. No death arrays, just talkytalk hub."

      Tavey's body, despite being in the weightless of space, sagged at the revelation, he then perked back up. "Bigbig bombs take longtime to remove. How about we fixrig them with sparkleblasts?"

      There was silence on the other end before Buli said, "this... is acceptable, fixrig it quickquick."

      Slowly, Tavey struck through the phrase he had been painstakingly working on as he brought his team upon the comlink, "Oy, up and up, we got workwork to do. Major fixrig, less death, more talk and sparkles!"

The Grymlans answer by sending OwO techies along with an OwO shard in an effort woo the minotaurs into accepting a hub within their space. It is the Grymlan's hope that the many ideas expressed through OwO would allow the Rothuun to find direction and meaning so that they might temper their rage and dampen their hostilities towards the Sisters of Silence.

    News and Rumors
    • Grymlans across the Combine watch with baited breath as a probe designed by a newly founded Luminary Search Directive launches a homemade casserole into Homesun. Will Homesun react to this gift? Is Homesun a Luminary? Theories run rampant.
    • A new cartoon becomes famous among the Combine called "Jeejee and Friends vs the Galaxy," its a happy upbeat adventure romp involving charactures of the various races that the real Jeejee has met. Recent episodes have involved Jeejee, adventurer extrodinaire, fighting the Uber-mech-spider-droids of Mongo the Merciless who was invading the Droccen Empire under the newly cround Princess Sea's. Joining her on her quest were the two proud, yet bumbling, Lyraen and Vacio warriors Oof and Jack along with Mr. Wiggles the Rocthurhi, and occasionally butting horns with Zur, the angry Rotthun who has troubles expressing his emotions, but is really just a nice guy underneath it all.
    • Inspiration 3's launch is short lived. Rejiggering the power couplings for more power consumption did not in fact cause the ship to explode, or tear a hole in some eldritch realm unleashing untold horrors that want to eat our toes, instead all ships functions ground to a halt as the modified GLD's power consumption overpowered the enhanced reactors causing most of the ship's systems to shut down.
    • Inspired by the Space King's antics a small number of Grymlans have left Cloudysea for Neo Citadel upon their barely functioning, retrofitted transport Darkship with GLD. With excessive exhuberance, they have been seen righting wrongs, which might have not been wrong, saving damsels, who may have not needed to be saved, flexing on their enemies, or anybody who happens to be handy, and having too much fun than is strictly legal.
    • Due to operation Gift Basket, supplies to the CmC relay have been slowed, stalling construction. With the successful launch of Giftbasket, Jeejee had redoubled efforts to try and finished the Relay's construction.
    • Having suddenly found themselves in control of Dregisles, the Combine is unsure how to progress with rulership of the region. Talks between the Humans, Grymlans, and Lopurna have so far not yielded anything concrete.
    • Spoiler: Combine Corperations
      Show

      Corperations of the Combine

      The government of the Grymlan Combine consists of several corperations that both coordinate with, and against, each other in deciding how the efforts of the Grymlan people are applied. The Corperations are patrons and financial backers to research, production, and distribution groups typically within a certain field of Grymlan life and their internal structure represents the same general structure of the Combine at large.

      As such, Leadership among the Grymlans is based on election, with canidates chosen both on their stance with the indivdual corperation and the needs of the Grymlan people as a whole. Unsurprisingly, corruption is not uncommon among Grymlans leaders. Corruption is expected by the general populace as long as it has reasonable limits. Leaders are expected to have their own personal projects they're working on as long as they meet the needs of the Grymlan people. Given the inquisitive nature of Grymlans as a whole, an the high profile nature of the leadership, Grymlan politicians tend to have Cat and Mouse games between themselves that the populace tends to keep abreast of as a form of entertainment. Should such a leader be deemed insufficent, whether by incompetence, corruption, or changing needs of the people, they can be voted out of their position by the Corperations under them (though the state in which they are voted out might dictate the terms of their severance).

      Some Corporations of the Combine.
      • Foodstuff Solutions: Headed by Abrigal Dirtpaw, Foodstuff Solutions represents many agricultural interests in the Combine. Their farms provide food to feed the Grymlan people as well as providing other materials to the other Corporations. Their labs work to improve existing crops while at the same time they are always on the look out for new potential products to grow and experiment with.
      • Max Zappyzap Projections: Lead by Dhaka Sparkthrower, Max Zappyzap Projections is the closest thing the Grymlans have to a security Corporation. In prior years they were an arms manufacturer who designed energy casters for Grymlan ships to protect them against space debris. They also did research into high energy release weapons that largely went unused (I mean of course you gotta set one off just to make sure it works, we didn't need that asteroid anyways) but did result in research with Arclight Power that provided the primary fission reactors that provide power to the Grymlan's cities and ships. Nowadays they serve as one of the military minded corporations expanding the Grymlan's knowledge of tactics and equipment as they are exposed to new races.
      • Arclight Power: Lead by Dayton Voltzap, Arclight Power serves the Grymlan's ever-growing need for power. They are the formost researchers in high energy fields and often looking for new elements or ways to use them alongside Max Zappyzap Projections.
      • Fluffyshine Grooming: Headed by Celise Dyedye, Fluffyshine Grooming provides cosmetics and grooming supplies to the Grymlans. Proper grooming, especially of their tails, is considered a necessity by the Grymlan populace. In addition Grymlans enjoy expressing themselves in a wide array of colors both in clothing and hair dye. Fluffyshine Grooming is the leader in what is new and chic by melding technology with fashion.
      • Farseeker Enterprise: Lead by Trevan Longhaul, Farseeker Enterprise focuses not only on exploratory sensors and shipping, but they also serve the Grymlan Combine with transporting goods between population centers. While they were not the designers of the Darkship concept, they have been diligently improving it, focusing on the ships abilities to operate on long haul deployments and improving on thruster designs.
      • Infrastructure Craftmakers: Lead by Bruk Dynacraft, Infrastructure Craftmakers maintains the infrastructure of Grymlan life whether it be the heat resistant domes of Wratheye or the various space stations orbiting the Cloudysea expanse. They support endeavors to build faster, cheaper, and more adaptable among hostile environments.
      • Truthytruth Communications: Lead by Leelee Sweettounge, Truthytruth Communications deals with data and communications between the Grymlan people and works alongside OwO, and they also host many news and entertainment channels.
      • Feelgood Incorperated: Lead by Vera Tailsnug, Feelgood Incorperated serves the healthcare needs of the Grymlans. The work to constantly push the boundaries of medicine and scientific enhancement.
      • Fringe Science Go!: Headed by Wexel Weirdlight, Fringe Sceince Go! explores theoretical scientific fields such as magic and psionics. With the introduction of aliens with these abilities they have seen a resurgance as of late.

    Worlds of Lyrae
    Current Ruler: The Ascended One, Lyrae

    Aaaaaand…ACTIONS!

    1.) [Mil, Conquest]: In order to secure a hyperlane between Lyraen and Vilari space, Tra Gutri takes his and Ool Vulk's fleets into P8 to secure the space and establish Lyraen control. In exchange for a peaceful surrender, the Reed King is offered continued autonomy, barring no discovery of egregious breaches of morality. Tra Gutri emphasizes that he would prefer no one dies, but that a stable and well-policed route between the Worlds of Lyrae and the Vilari Solidarity is essential to Lyraen interests.
    2.) [Phi] Explore N8 [Success! Rolled 15] (I will eventually get the hexes down.)
    3.) [Dip] Host the “Lyraen Philosophical Conference”, linked here. Everyone is invited.
    4.) [Dip] Attempt to reason with Proxos, offering him a way to explore the galaxy. [Rolled and Failed] But with the Courier's Help, it will succeed.
    5.) [Phi] Assist with the relocation of Proxos

    Non-Action: Attend the coronation, state Lyrae's displeasure on the attacks on the SoS, give the Couriers a favor.

    - The rumors of the situation with the Luminary Proxos are of immediate concern to Lyrae. An older, though maybe less powerful, Luminary in such danger makes her very uneasy. Both the Alysians and the Etherites receive a priority communication from Lyrae herself, offering her services as an intermediary in order to forestall any unfortunate happenings.

    - Evidence of the Howling, a Lunatic cult once thought extinguished, has come to light, indicating that the moon-worshippers may not be as long gone as once thought.

    - The Mission Corp Ayl Lan’s efforts have finally paid off and a charted route has at last been established between the Lyraens, the Sisters of Silence, and the Grymlans. The hope is that this will foster additional, diplomatic ties between them.

    - At the same time, a civilization not far behind the Lyraens has been discovered along the charted path. Proposals to demolish their planet to make way for an hyperlane exit have been indefinitely suspended. Ayl Lan is requesting permission to send envoys from part of the newly-formed Diplomatic Corp, an extension of the Mission Corp, though to what end is still being debated.

    - The Grymlan company Fluffyshine has been offered a lucrative contract to ship their products to the Lyrae system, for use of the rich and famous.

    Actions
    [Diplomacy] Stabilize P18: The Ogatvezhiy of Baryshev are not a brave race. The majority of the oligarchs surrendered to the Rothuun armies immediately, without putting up a fight. The few remaining resistors are hunted down and are either forced to assimilate or destroyed.
    [Diplomacy] Inquest to Q21: Failure to claim the regions between the Rothuun and the Church of Iteus are not met with despair. A second expedition is mounted, this one supported by a small force of marines and defense ships.
    [Military] Raise a unit: What few militarily inclined Ogatvezhiy there are are organized into a small, highly focused scout unit, designed to be sent first into unknown territory. This unit, dubbed the Orissa Patrol, is operating under close inspection and with caution.
    [Military] Raise a unit: Aneb Two-Gun has not been idle. While in exile, he assembles a small group of extremely devoted followers, mainly berserkers loyal to the Cult of Blood. Although the Berserkers have agreed to fight alongside Kzarna Harpooner in her foreign wars, they are not trustworthy, and they could switch sides at any moment.

    One of the most influential Ogatvezhiy oligarchs, Lysyj Oragatsk, has agreed to join with the Rothuun. He is henceforth promoted to the position of Baryshev Regional Governor, with the caveat that he be subordinate to all Rothuun visitors.

    Plans are announced to open Taurina I to foreign tourism. The Urthuun advocates a resort hotel being built on Ikhal. This suggestion is met with fierce opposition.

    The Cult of Blood’s power over the people is collapsing. As new ideologies filter in from other nations, many Rothuun are rejecting the traditional ways. What ideology will prevail remains to be seen.

    Actions
    [Dip] Stabilize L10 (TN 12, Roll 16) - The destruction of Ascendant Aurora threw the region into disarray, but it didn't take long for the government to step in. Strategic use of Empaths along with more conventional measures proved effective at calming the unrest, though the prominence of One followers in the region prevented a total dissolution of tension.

    [Dip] Eradicators Rep 1->2 (TN 12, Roll 11) - Communiques with the notorious Pirates continued, though didn't progress far this year.

    [Dip] Establish a Claim on L8 (TN 12, Roll 12) - Reaching out to the Killbot-architects vying for power, Admiral Elizabeth made arrangements for Clara of Rios Arcology, a trusted and technically skilled cousin of hers, to take a retinue and ingratiate herself into one of the subfactions to learn some of their secrets in return for Gelean political backing and economic support. From there, efforts can be made to bring the leaders of that faction tightly under Gelean sway and maneuver it to the top of the heap.

    [Dip] Couriers Rep 0->1 (TN 10, Roll 15) - Trying again to establish a rapport with the mysterious Couriers that they were indebted to, a few token gifts were made of trained Space Whales, intended as pets or companions for the Relays.

    [Mil] Conquer K7 (Send 2 units, Uncontested) - The mysterious planet holding together at the edge of a black hole was a mystery, but it had little in the way of defenses. The existing civilizations were brought to heel with only a token show of military resistance. A few stragglers were driven underground, but formal surrender was declared within 12 hours of arrival in orbit.

    1. [Diplomacy] Establish a Claim on Region R-06 13 (Roll neglected the +1 from Inquest)
      Discovery of the so-called "Floobers" and their Dyson Sphere sends a jolt of excitement through the Sodality. Members of the Diplomatic Corps are dispatched under Prelate Valyn-Relurr to make contact with the morphic constructs, and to impart the knowledge of the wider universe. It is the hope of the Sodality that this revelation, so delivered, will compel the Floobers to seek membership in a greater galactic polity, and that the presence of the Prelate will predispose them to seeing the Sodality as worthy successors to their long-departed makers.
    2. [Diplomacy] Perform an Inquest into Region R-04 9
      Ships of the Diplomatic Corps are dispatched yet again to chart the borderlands around Tslavan. This time, they proceed under military escort until they enter unexplored space, and remain in regular contact with a patrol stationed within quick-response range.
    3. [Diplomacy] Perform an Inquest into Region R-08 17
    4. [Economy] Acquire Trade Post 1 of Tellurim in Region R-06 13
      In the wake of Prelate Valyn-Relurr's diplomatic mission, a company of traders from Orbital Reef Yuun arrive in the Floober's system. Taking advantage of the existing translation equipment, they manage to barter access to the Floober's Tellurim in exchange for regular deliveries of ice for use in the sphere's heat management subsystem.
    5. [Economy] Acquire Trade Post 1 of Fairy Flowers in Region P-08 11
      Initially dispatched in pursuit of the King of the Reed's unique crop, Vilari traders withdraw from the system with word of the impending Lyraen occupation. Though they trust their neighbors and allies, the Vilari have no interest in being caught in the middle of an armed conflict.

    Infuriated by the lack of progress in searching for a new home, the Red Sun Riders have decided to band together with Dirk Venhal of the Tunnel Cobras and lay claim to a terrestial home of their own, boarding three ships armed with small munitions, and speeding out of Hearth with gravity latches at full throttle.

    [MILITARY]: Recon with 1 Unit to O19

    Director of Symbiosis Zal M’ell
    Diplomacy: 8
    Military: 1
    Economy: 4
    Philosophy: 3
    Intrigue: 5

    1 [INTRIGUE] Secret

    Not all that occurs within UPT is known to those who seek to listen in.

    2 [INTRIGUE 5] Uncover Caller Fragment & Contact the Conclave of the Black Sun

    Recent reports across the OMS provided by Guardian to the many newly GLD equipped species carried news of discoveries of ancient Caller technology by multiple stellar powers, notably the nearby Conclave of the Black Sun who had recovered a Caller fragment from one of their lost treasure fleets. The Tal-Amanyn had been good neighbors to the Symbraum and it was UPT's desire to preserve this positive relationship with their nearest stellar neighbor. OMS communiques are thus sent to the Conclave informing them of UPT's intention to launch their own investigative expedition seeking another remnant of Caller technology alongside an offer to transfer whatever was discovered to Conclave stewardship in exchange for a promise to share whatever additional information would be garnered from its study. It was rumored that Caller technology was enhanced by proximity to other pieces of Caller hardware and while UPT was eager to learn more their internal analysis of risk had determined it was more desirable to observe the results from afar rather than performing experiments with unknown technology within the Symbraum's own sectors. Additionally it was known that the Conclave was eager to acquire Caller treasures so if UPT's transfer of whatever they recovered to Conclave hands could garner stronger positive relations between UPT and the Conclave all the better.

    3 [DIPLOMACY] Press claim on E5 Success 1/1

    Having made great strides in understanding the activation of the Sarcophagi Worlds' Geo-Glyphs, or rather avoiding their activation, small Symbraum infiltration teams have meticulously scoured the tomb worlds and disabled their long dormant defenses. Once it was clear there was no longer great risk of alien mummies rising up to tear scientists and colonists apart a new wave of larger teams made of xeno-archaeologists, xeno-biologists, and xeno-anthropologists land upon the desert worlds to begin a more intense study of the intricacies of the tomb designs, mummies, and wards placed on the desert planets. In a few short months SED and ARD researchers present to their superiors their mastery of the arcane power that animated the mummies. It appeared each sarcophagus was inscribed with unique but similar runes which when spoken in the proper way allowed the speaker to assume control of the mummy that lay within. The mummies themselves were like mindless drones, useless insofar as Breeding Division was concerned and failing to quell demands for more living brains back home, but promising in utility as drones. Robotics were something of a neglected science among the Symbraum who preferred sciences of the flesh, mind, and stellar phenomena so the articulation and precision made possible through remote operation of an alien mummy helped alleviate the lingering demands for more advanced robotics. If a Symbraum hosted by a lifeform could not be risked performing some dangerous task or did not wish to whittle away their life on repetitive mundane tasks a mummy could be directed or 'programmed' to perform the task in question instead. Though experiments in this realm were still in their preliminary stage ARD was excited by the prospects offered by this newfound resource. After over a year of study the secret is even found for the creation of new mummies enchanted with the process used by the existing inhabitants ensuring UPT would not soon run out of 'undead' drones to utilize.

    4 [DIPLOMACY] Stabilize F6 Success

    A formal quarantine marked by warning beacons is erected around the Lycantrope planet while supply lines are strengthened and communication satellites are constructed and hauled into the interstellar space between Yeon and what is being called the 'Lyca System.' Quickly the rest of the sector is more thoroughly mapped and UPT bases are established in strategically important areas of the sector. A thorough examination was underway relating to the unique biological life that was the Lycantrope plant and results of this survey were expected to be published soon for review by UPT Directors.

    5 [PHILOSOPHY] Declare Kamasati the State Ideology

    At long last Kamasati representatives arrive in Yeon and the Xaldarian Expanse to begin speaking with high ranking members of the Transcendence Division regarding the maxims of the High Dreamer. The Symbraum were eager to learn this peculiar method of thought that placed each species of sufficient intellect within their own pantheon as gods tasked with enlightening and uplifting the Dream Children and defending them from Demons. In truth this thought was not greatly different than much of the cultural philosophy held by the Symbraum for nearly a century given their 'symbiotic' nature capable of uplifting simple animalistic or otherwise primitive minds to the realm of psionic manipulation and greater reasoning. The great psychic web had long existed among the Symbraum, though it was not then known as such, and so to expand this web out to encompass the Kamasati and other fellow disciples of the God-Mind was a satisfactory reward to the Symbraum who had long felt isolated by their superior nature to the more simplistic lifeforms they came to possess. After nearly two years of quiet consultation the head of TD, Brez Y'ett, alongside Director Zal M'ell jointly announce the formal adoption of Kamasati ideology as the new standard thought form to be adhered to throughout UPT holdings.

    • Leaked internal documents, whether truly leaked or distributed as some form of propaganda was unclear, share UPT opinions on various Stellar Powers elevated by Guardian at the Simulacrum:
      • Starting nearby the Conclave of the Black Sun appeared to be generally regarded as somewhat rigid but reliable and predictable neighbors. Concerns regarding the Tal-Amanyn were minimal as the UPT officials believed their neighbors would rather engage in diplomacy than jump for war, a very valuable trait in a neighbor. The Meritocracy was intriguing as its government clashed with its professed church but it was the church of Realtaism that had grown most powerful under the military dictatorship of the Marshals. UPT predictions put the chance for societal revolution, or counter-revolution as the Meritocracy would no doubt deem it, were high. The Kombuch were the last nearby stellar neighbor and were talked about sparingly and with either respect or curiosity within the leaked documents. Their ability to bond in a truly symbiotic if aesthetically ghastly form intrigued the Symbraum as did their purported psychic ability. Many notes were made of desire to experiment with the result of a Symbraum/Kombuch/Host hybrid and how that might affect the involved species.
      • Celestia Corporation broadcasts had reached UPT. Pages and pages of references to and reviews of Celestian/Zara programming published by Red Kessin VL fill not only leaked documents but nonclassified public works written by Symbraum with no direct involvement with the government. The Symbraum are not nearly as obsessed with the celebrity culture promoted by those like Korima of Droccen but they do obsess over the epic tales and lengthy films produced by the "entertainment sector" of the galaxy. Reviews for On the Edge of Forever a recent blockbuster production are generally positive with most Symbraum reviews noting the quirky mad scientist character was a standout performance.
      • The Gelean Republic is seen as a longterm threat to stability in whatever sector of the galaxy it settles in. The open siding with Eradicators was considered a risky and possibly careless move and though they speculated heavily on galactic response their own opinions seemed unclear on the matter. UPT was not nearby the Core and so concern over its breach or the Sisterhood's vigil was small. Curiosity over how cooperation with space raiders for dirtier tasks were perceived by other powers however? This interested UPT.
      • The Kamasati are in private documentation as much as they were publicly referred to as wise and benevolent beings whom the Symbraum would be well served to learn from. There is hope the Kamasati ideology will spread throughout this area of the galaxy between Symbraum and Kamasati home systems. The Geleans might prove more predictable and less chaotic should they share bonds of thought with their neighbors it was believed and the acquisition minded Nyxians could make valuable patrons to the movement of the mind. Likewise the Kombuch were known as psychics to the Kamasati and they wished to speak with the mushroom colonies about their elevation into their own pantheon above the Dream Children.
    • Brez Y'ett Division Head of Transcendence journeys from Xaldar to Polisto in a rare departure from the Symbraum homeworld. Many come to mind link with the wise but reclusive Division Head. Those who do so report insight and enlightenment from their interaction and for their part Brez seems unconcerned with acting as a site for pilgrimage. Touring the inhabited planets puts the Head into contact with Director level members of TD Committees and the message of Kamasati is spread.

    1. [Diplomacy] Attend Sai's Coronation - News that the raspberry skinned princess Sai for whom the Chairman's flagship was named was to play host to her coronation as Empress in an extravagant ceremony on the Drocc homeworld prompts the Chairman to petition senior committees for approval to visit the distant Drocc planet on official interplanetary business. A series of genuine political reasons are presented to justify this expense and the long absence of the Chairman from Terron affairs from solidifying relations with the nearby Vilari Sodality to strengthening bonds of Oneship among old and new adherents to the unifying ideology. Although most are quick to stir rumors about the real reason for Vaou's desire to lead the expedition himself ultimately it is decided that maintaining a positive diplomatic reputation was a worthwhile pursuit and resources are allocated for the Chairman to take a small unarmed cruiser and ambassadorial compliment through the Relays to the distant planet of Droccen.

      • Congratulate the Empress
      • Speak with the Vilari Sodality on behalf of the UC signing a defensive treaty to be re-examined for continued relevance in 10 years (5 rounds) time

      • Send SoS 2 Units (Princess Task Force Warships & Support Ships)
      • With unanimous resolution from the existing membership welcome the Droccen Imperium formally into the Uplift Chorus


    2. [Diplomacy] Claim S9 on ideological grounds TN: 12 Roll: 17 - Introductions are made between the Rocthurhi and the refugees of the nearby metal-rich sector who recently had suffered a devastating nuclear exchange much as the SPR's homeworld had not long ago. The tenets of the One filtered through the political organization of the People's Republic are introduced alongside ships come to ferry the refugee populace to newly constructed mining stations in the mineral rich asteroid belt of the region. Although discussions were not yet finalized for the addition of the sector to the SPR's sphere of influence the prospects were promising as the locals seemed intrigued by the political organization structured around fair and equal distribution of work and reward through a much more flattened form of societal strata.
    3. [Economy] Buyout S6 Crystal Skulls TP 2 TN: 12 Roll: 14 - Concerned over the destructive capabilities demonstrated by the crystallized world SPR agents are dispatched to acquire and return these so-called "crystal skulls" for study back in the Terron System. These agents were also advised to make an inclusive report regarding any political activity among the non-crystalized worlds for study and adaptation in the upcoming year.
    4. [Philosophy] Convert T6 from Open to the One TN: 12 Roll: 12 - Although the denizens of the Crystal Sphere as it has come to be informally known were all deceased and thus non-receptive to talk of the One the Couriers despite their haughtiness were acquainted with SPR policy and ideology as well as thinking creatures capable of adopting a shared ideological outlook. The male Couriers as well as the female relay herself are spoken to by senior thinkers and philosophers in the hope of convincing the local mercantile force to adopt a more unified view in line with SPR, Rocthurhi, and Tezh thought.
    5. [Philosophy] Convert T8 from Open to the One using Tezh Phy TN: 12 Roll: 21 - On request of the Sisterhood the SPR reaches out to the Tezh inviting a senior philosopher from the ideological head to accompany an SPR mission to the deeply divided sector splitting the Terron System from Thylla. This cold war between such industrious peoples offered no benefit to either side, Republic thinkers argue on each of the clashing planets, and rather than continue a divisive and destructive war for supremacy the natives of both worlds would be better served unifying under the ideology of the One. Thneedz were a marvelous invention, simultaneously produced by both systems, and allowing a petty difference such as who did or did not paint stars on their public works to keep an otherwise prosperous peoples disunited harmed both solar systems more than helped them. Progress in spreading this message is rapid as both planet's denizens were war weary and the Tezh arbiter selected by the Consensus proves especially compelling in their arguments to disarm the Sneetch & GeiselTM defense systems at least temporarily to test the waters of peace for the first time in over a century.

    • Expeditions by the Sublime People’s Republic find themselves in the ruins of a recently deceased civilization. While the causes of this civilization’s demise are currently unknown, all that remains of the currently crystallized remains of the inhabitants. Cities, people, pets, even trees have been converted into a strange crystalline substance. The skulls of the former inhabitants in particular have been shown to have...interesting, properties. In fact one of the explorers was nearly slain by a by an animated crystal skull after attempting to handle it without protection, nearly transforming into crystal themselves. In the midst of the chaos the CMC has established a Relay not far from the crystalized world and currently possess several space stations in the vicinity that host a small remnant refugee population. (SPR discovers T6 contains a [Great] resource of Crystal Skulls of which TP 1 is owned by CmC, an Open Learning Center, a CmC Relay, and no Units! SPR has +1 to Buyouts in T6 for one Round!)
    • Rocthurhi ships sent to scout the sector between their own and the Sublime People’s Republic discover a sector whose most habitable planet scans as highly irradiated. More in depth scans reveal a world formerly prosperous with intelligent life to have only a decade prior destroyed itself through nuclear war. A few survivors are registered and contacted by the Rocthurhi diplomats who are seen as possible saviors by some and the finishing hand of annihilation by others. With little other options forward however a majority of survivors seem eager to cooperate with these alien visitors and discuss the possibility for Rocthurhi space travelers granting the survivors the means to permanent access to a nearby asteroid belt who’s occasional rogue asteroid had provided a uniquely valuable metal in ages past. The mining of this metal might offer a chance to trade and rebuild from their devastation, a recovery that could be aided by the Rocthurhi. (RTH discovers S9 which contains a [Good] resource of Boreal Metal & an Open Learning Center! RTH has +1 to Establish a Claim in S9 for one Round!)
    • A senior member of the Central Committee, Patricia Tats, has begun to express concern over the Chairman's lengthy duration heading up the CLCPP. Though her criticisms are cloaked in praise for Vaou's securing access to Rocthurhi methane to fuel the Matter Rearragners and building of the Uplift Chorus alliance among the galactic neighbors pointed remarks regarding Vaou's purported relationship with the imperially titled and presumably minded Droccen tied with veiled accusations of tyrannical "Great Man" tendencies conflicting with the will of the people become more common place. Tats was a highly valued scientist and political theorist as well as a long-serving member on the Central Committee granting her insulation from being labelled a reactionary as one less privileged in SPR society might experience however tensions are certainly escalated by her rhetoric as two factions quietly appear splitting between support for Tats and the Chairman.
    • Access to a steady supply of fuel, however smelly it may have been, allows SPR researchers to resume testing of improvements to the Matter Rearranger design. Higher complexity atomic compounds including live organic structures are created in a small number of lab tests although the power drain is significant. It is suggested in some more fringe publications that the Matter Allocation Committee was sponsoring highly secretive experiments to not merely refine the ability of MRs but to wholly transform their capabilities into conveyors capable of taking an atomic snapshot and transferring or duplicating these items over vast physical distances. The ability to boldly follow scientific possibilities unshackled by fuel demands elates many within the SPR science and engineering fields.

    Optics VR intertrue connection of the Caliphate
    • The promise of a new home planet lives across the Virtual Net, almost every member of the Caliphate now sails across the stars in the hopes of establishing a new rule. Bolstered by their drone fleets and centered around the AI Queen that has been developed to aid their choices. This was considered the highest liklihood of victory for their nation. Debate is popular but the machines voice is supported and they hope it gives rise to a new empire away from the husk of their former planet.
    • They have abandoned the mines of the Hasson to the one high Maxim all resources are dedicated to this new planet.
    • remember all Kryptids of color and creed are worthy of respect. Looking to the flesh for answers is a fools errand the machine alone is worthy to rule, it will pull us from violence.


    The Voice of the One
    • We have been blessed! The One has heard news of a caller fragment in space. It is the true word calling out to us!
    • Stomp out the Caliphate. This insurrection is a vile tool of the Do and Si to split the true believers from the one.
    • Only in death can these vile beings be brought to the glory of the one. Murder the Casrule rebels!


    Truth TV
    • Tonight on truth TV debates increase as disagreements grow between democratic ideology and anarchist mindsets. Abandoning the hive mentality has caused considerable strain on this young society and while we march to freedom many ask what will that freedom look like?
    • (Propoganda plays presenting the flag pole of the Casrule movement being pushed through the chest of a soldier of the high Maxims troops.)
    • The caliphate promotes oneness and an end to racist intolerance but we all know they just want us to swear away our freedom to a new overlord. We want no queens and that includes an artificial one!
    • We make a move against our enemies the one high Maxim, they tried to make allies in the depths of space but we will not be tricked! We have launched a surprise attack on the planet and we intend to crush the enemy moving against us. We know not their plans but we have the resources to dismember this threat and shatter their hopes against us.

    • Even with rather extensive travel across the stars there is much work being done at home, updating the primer of the Triarte, the Kitab-al-Alcir, to a more modern footing. Work is being done at a frenzied pace to catalog all of the new discoveries being made across the branches of science. From countless new species of life, to new concepts of how mind and thought work and are communicated.
    • Through all of the optimism of the Driskite and the creative pushing the boundaries, efforts within the Shu are primarily focused on ensuring that the overall identity of the Etherites and that the ways of the Triarte are preserved.
    • Big news from a nearby system to find not just others that follow the Triarte but our form of technomagic. Also the finding and communication with the solar entity named Proxos is quite astounding. Unfortunately the aggressive nature of Proxos is leading to the necessity of ejecting it from the system in concert with the locals. While not the ideal outcome it is hoped that further exploration will allow the finding of another of these Luminary spirits in another location and a more peaceful dialogue can be opened.

    Round 3
    Round 3
    The Guild-Empire of Nyx
    Nyx (Sector K5)
    Domino Ophelo, Lord of Coin

    Actions
    1. [Military] Construct the Gilded Garrison at Isabe (5/5) - The finishing touches are put on the brand new space station in orbit over Isabe's Landing with quarters being furnished, stores being stocked and staffed, and cafeterias beginning to fill the air with the smells of exotic foods or at more popularly palatable renditions of foreign dishes. A number of aspiring merchants are granted contracts with the Merchant Prince of Isabe ensured by the Lord of Coin himself granting them entrepreneurial rights to entertainment sectors of the station which quickly fill with bars, drug dens, and "exotic dancer" clubs catering to a wide variety of tastes and predilections. While Nyxians staffed much of the station the opportunity to earn valuable Guild credits which were universally exchangeable for the growing number of goods made available on Nyxian markets attracted all manner of hopeful aliens seeking to earn a comfortable living for themselves through service on this grand station. As a military barracks it was seen as secure and the flood of services being made available to draw in mercenaries made it a highly lucrative prospect. Not all could be winners of course and even after only a few months certain businesses find they lack the clientele to remain viable but enough success stories of wealth generated at the Gilded Garrison keeps these open slots filled with new prospective business owners.
    2. [Economy] Buyout L8 Kill Bots TP 1 13 - Robots programmed to murder and slaughter one's enemies didn't exactly spend money at bars or dance clubs but the engineers who maintained them did. Seeking to insulate the Guild-Empire from aggression by outside forces the Merchant Princes pool funds to make a massive offer to the nearby system offering to fund their war efforts to claim their local system for years if not decades to come for the exchange of a significant number of Kill Bots and the engineers needed to maintain them to transfer from their current locale to the Nyxian sector which many accept.
    3. [Economy] Buyout L8 Kill Bots TP 2 15 - Negotiations prove very fruitful, far exceeding Guild expectations, and every contract proposed to the crafty roboticists and their craft flood into Nyxian space. Personal defense fleets of the Merchant Princes and even a few especially wealthy Merchant Governors are soon augmented with wings of Kill Bot drones armed and ready to carry out their directives.
    4. [Economy] Buyout K7 Angel Wings TP 1 15 - No one in the Guild-Empire quite knew what to make of the discovery in the region bordering Nyx and Gelean space but when it was made clear that the so-called Angel Wings were a form of currency in the sector the desire to possess at least a small investment in their trade spread throughout the Guild-Empire. Local beliefs in "gifts from the gods" was clearly superstitious nonsense but any Nyxian familiar with the Laws of Procurement could tell you "Superstitions were highly profitable." Trading for mere trinkets within the Guild a stockpile of Angel Wings are slowly accumulated offworld that the Nyxians might one day soon present themselves to the locals who collected them as righteous gods-chosen able to requisition whatever they pleased from the unusual system.
    5. [Economy 5 Upgrade Quantity] Increase M23 Sorcerers from [Minor] to [Good] taking TP 2 - Although opposite the Core with the weakening of oversight for GLD ships thanks to Gelean maneuvering against the uptight Sisterhood Nyxian ships venture to the nearby Courier relay for warping to the Relay on the opposite side of Axiom outside Alysian space for a short hop to the highly conflicted space dominated by the Kryptids and their civil war which was now spilling out across multiple sectors. News had leaked on the OMS of a group of magically empowered individuals with the capability to engage in combat equivalent to conventional ships on an individual basis. It seemed these "sorcerers" had recently failed to come to a diplomatic arrangement with the One High Maxim faction of Kryptids and were now facing invasion by the Casrule Movement. The details of the political struggle were largely inconsequential in the eyes of the Nyxians but what was relevant was that conflict would drive a need for funds, be they needed by the sorcerers or the Kasrule didn't much matter to the Guild. The completion of the Gilded Garrison was promised to bring the mercenaries required by the Guild-Empire and Lord Domino would not be made a liar. Who better to defend Nyxian interests than veterans of the first known interstellar conflict imbued with the energies of demigods? If the sorcerers emerged supreme they would owe part of their victory to Nyxian funds and if the Kasrule took the sector under their own dominion the Guild-Empire was prepared to offer favorable terms for the retention of a portion of the local sorcerous supply.

    1. Refuse to be the Sisterhood of Silence's lackeys


    • Opinions on the Gelean Republic range from fear over their growing ties with the Eradicators, rumored to be no great friends of trade, and toady deference to the much more powerful stellar power who seemingly had no qualms about employing every ounce of their military might to squash opposition. No formal contact has been made between Nyx and the Geleans and this uncertainty leads to much volatility in the market as speculation over the future runs rampant. Pressure for Lord Domino to reach out to Gelean leadership is mounting.

    Technocratic Meritocracy of Caruflaith Restored

    Regions C11 and D12
    Marshal Galen, disciple of Aoife
    Round 3


    Actions:
    1. [Philosophy]Probe E11 (2d6+8)
      Tapping into the Couriers' economic power would compensate for the shortcomings of the Meritocracy's still inadequate trade fleet well. Upon receiving the request, Galean immediately sends a large reconnaissance fleet in the indicated direction. It is led by Advance A001-004, better known as Tough Van, the first android to rise to the rank of Fleet Captain. They (thanks to the Meritocracy's progressive social policies, it is forbidden to assign gender to androids) are of average humanoid stature, but are surprisingly strong and durable. Legends say that they fought an Imperial hovertank in a scuffle during the Great Revolutionary War. With their bare hands. Van always dismisses requests for a retelling, though: "Well, that skirmish ended inconclusively, you see. I regret that I wasn't able to disable the tank. It likely went on to kill many innocents. Not a good story to tell." Altough Van has never expressed any contrarevolutionary sentiments, many are suspicious of them, alleging that Van is merely waiting for an opportunity to incite or join an android rebellion.
    2. [Philosophy]Convert C9 to Realtaism (2d6+8)
      A few shadowy figures, no more than two dozen, are seen walking around the national capital, Mar. Nobody knows them. They are of all ages and body shapes; in fact, they don't have much in common except the white cloaks with hoods, covering their faces, and the antique swords that are hanging from their belts. Though they seem to be avoiding each other, it is clear that they feel nothing but unadulterated contempt for everyone not part of their little cabal.

      They are seen observing the preparations for the launch of a colony fleet, instructing the crew occasionally. To the horror of all good citizens, one of the figures orders the crew to load Realtaist holy symbols and texts into the spaceships instead of the warheads meant to annihilate the genetically-modified traitors to humankind in C9.

      Nasty rumors are heard on the streets long after the incident. It is said that Marshal Galean is just a puppet or figurehead; he is controlled by a shadow council that seeks to smother the flames of the revolution. Public paranoia is on the rise, and violent incidents are becoming more frequent, as belief in the moral integrity of the government falters.

    3. [Philosophy]Convert D10 to Realtaism (2d6+8)
      The Meritocracy's leadership has decided to colonize the surrounding space as quickly at possible for the benefit of humanity. To this end, thousands of randomly chosen citizens are hastily packed into spaceships, together with literal armies of androids, and sent off in all directions.

      This is a significant deviation from previous government policy that usually emphasised individuals' freedom to do what they think is best. The colonists are under far less pressure to conform to Meritocracy laws, especially since the Meritocracy has no formal penalties other than execution by duel, and the government is already struggling to keep the colonists content and numerous. Some don't even wear as much as a scarf on the face! Truly, this cultural regressionism is horrifying! Marshal Galean has resolved to crack down on crime in the colonies once they have been more stabilized.
    4. [Philosophy ]Convert D16 (Mier capital) to Realtaism (2d6+8)

    5. [Military]Gift 1 unit to MYA
      A fleet moves to Melfynus, to join forces with the starfishes.

    Diplomacy: 1
    Military: 5 + 1
    Economy: 2
    Philosophy: 5 + 1
    Intrigue: 6


    Actions:
    1 - Phy: Convert I21 - 13
    Though early attempts to spread the word to Celestia were met with disinterest, they weren't entirely wasted. The Nolkir's grasp on what made them tick was greatly boosted by the time spent there, and left them an obvious avenue of attack. They sent Frvamas. His job had never been particularly important, and he had just the right amount of self-absorption to be fascinating to the people of Celestia. So they sent him to be loud, and interesting, in front of ideally as many cameras as possible. Actual conversion wasn't his job, nor one he was qualified for. But he was capable of mentioning just enough on various talk shows and interviews to spark interest, and intrigue, and to also occasionally mention his friends who were qualified.

    If uptake of the nine occurred because of it, well, wasn't that a happy accident?

    2 - Phy: Convert K25 - 16
    3 - Mil 5: Create Tactical Doctrine - The Second Crusade
    With a successful Tactical Roll: the Svaatyr Theocracy gains a +2 to convert the region the following round OR after winning the combat, instead the recently conquered region converts to their State Ideology automatically.

    The Conclave of the Black Sun
    His Excellency, Azric Rey-Vandriss, Viceroy of Amanyk

    Actions:
    Rolls.
    1: [Diplomacy] Press the claim on H10. Partial Success.
    The Viceroy and numerous high ranking members of the Conclave and Judiciary sit down with the Navigators to discuss their integration. Hopefully the knowledge revealed to the Conclave by Guardian will be sufficient to convince the Navigators of the need for solidarity and the generous terms and autonomy offered should seal the deal.

    2: [Diplomacy] Inquest into F8. Great Success.
    Despite running into trouble that forced them to abandon the expedition previously, the Boundless Horizon is once more sent out, this time determined to succeed and establish the agreed upon frontier with the Unified Public Trust.

    3: [Economy] Buyout Unstable Dark Energy, H6. Failure.
    The need for energy has grown as the fires of Tal-Amanyn industry flare into life after so long neglected. Great forges, shipyards and manufactories roar into life across the system and each one is hungry for power, even if that power is... Troubling.

    4: [Economy] Expedition into H8. Success.
    Thinking that perhaps it would be unlucky to try again after a disastrous expedition, Pretalla Juran instead turns the Viridian Sunset elsewhere in the hopes of shaking the bad luck that struck her previous attempt at exploration.

    5: [Intrigue] Secret. The manifold deeds of the Conclave are not always apparent, even to its members.

    Messages to other powers:

    The offer of the Unified Public Trust to send any Caller fragment they uncovered the Amanyk is accepted and preparations are made to receive it at the Treasury. The Conclave promises to keep it safe and promise to return it whenever the UPT desires it back.

    The Kombuch are informed in no uncertain terms that the Conclave has an interest in Sector I5 and wishes to discuss the matter with them at some point.

    The Geleans, who seemed so pleasant at the Simulacrum, are denounced for choosing to align themselves with pirates and brigands. They are advised of the danger of their chosen path and urged to turn from it immediately lest they suffer tragic circumstances at the hands of those they have wronged.

    1. [Military] With the new relic in hand the combat capabilities of the Church's ships have skyrocketed. The boost in tactical radar technology necessitates the immediate construction of four new "big ships," a purely expeditionary advancement.

    Round 3

    News and Rumors
    • First contact with the humanoid races of Regions I9 and J8 result in surprising hybrid colonies. These new colonies are immediate curiosities and are invited to travel to the Cacola Sphere to help teach the kombuch more about how their perceptions differ from those of other kombuch. The Mother takes particular interest in the new colonies and several are invited to work as ambassadors.


    Actions
    • [Dip] Stabilize Region H6 (Success, 13)
      Efforts to solidify the Kombuch hold on Region H6 largely focus on deciphering patterns in the ebb and flow of unstable dark matter in order to find safe locations for permanent settlements.
    • [Dip] Establish a claim on Region J8 (Success, 14)
      Initial contact with the Lyraen offshoots in Region J8 are fruitful and even lead to the discovery of hybridization potential.
    • [Dip] Inquest into Region I5 (Failure, 10)
      Who or what may live in region I5 remains mysterious, despite the best efforts of intrepid Kombuch diplomats.

      Seeing the volatile, political powderkeg in Region I9 leaves Communicator Jellydisc seqrching for an alternative solution.

Ground work is laid for a plan to help the sentient non-organics relocate to Region H6 where their expertise in dark matter extraction could be put to use and they can establish their own government under the protection of the kombuch. Additional plans to help the organic Ioninians create a replacement nonsentient robotic workforce are also made.

    Master Aurelius Marten Vox
    Diplomacy:2
    Military:8

    4 (Mil) Recon W9 with (1) unit. (Shatter Squadron)
    5 (Mil) Recruit a unit. (Grey Bulwark)

    With sufficient units mobilised, Aurelius launches his Great Foray into neighboruing space, leading his Ravagers personally, sending his remaining GLD equipped forces in three directions. Crimson Heart, Shatter Squadron, and First Flight, led by their respective Officers of the Order, embark forth into the unknown. In their absence, Aurelius leaves Officer Vandred of the Dreadfleet in charge, and directs the Wardens to mobilise their first fleet, the Grey Bulwark.
