PostSubject: The Republic of Soter   Fri Nov 02, 2012 8:34 pm






History


Quote :
Soter, a planet ravaged by a nuclear war. Forty years ago, the planet was a series of nations, one representing one power, another representing the other, and the rest falling within an array of allied territories and political ideologies. Finally the tensions between the two main factions boiled with the launching of an all out nuclear strike against everyone. The planet responded en force, with hundreds of nuclear devices piercing cities and decimating millions. Only the Fortress Cities managed to survive the war due to their laser defense systems. The rest of the planet is left in an irradiated waste, its oceans black with soot, radiation and all manner of death.
Out of the Ashes, only the Fortress Cities emerged unscathed. After years of problems, finally, Fortress City One, managed to rally all the other powers together under one banner, The Republic of Soter.

Crafted from the extremely durable yet hard plasteel, the inhabitants of Soter deem their flagship, the Pride of Soter, a Justice Class Battle Cruiser. their first, in a slowly expanding military space presence. It boasts firepower for speed, maneuverability and attack ship space. While it does extremely heavy firepower, it also prides itself on a strong defense of kinetic shields, as well as extremely durable armor. Its armament draws from its powerful generators, and supply of nuclear missiles, utilizing both point defense lasers, as well as several heavy cannon batteries located throughout the ship firing rapid fire HE shells. Its main weapon is a MAC Cannon. The Justice Class is the balanced version of variants currently in Development. The Justice Class boasts the ability to be both a carrier and a battleship. Its hangar bay and launch tubes allow for boarding pods and fighters to launch simultaneously to reach out and touch their enemy.

Spoiler:
 

Punisher Class Battle Cruisers (Deployed) removed most hangar space for more gun batteries, missiles, larger MAC tubes and a several MAC tubes to augment its firepower.


Carriers


Spoiler:
 

Liberator Class Carriers (Deployed) are the dedicated carriers of the fleet. They boast an increase in their fighter load, as well as their boarding party carrying capacity. They are considered the backbone of any invasion force, as they also carry a full contingent of ground troops with their supporting weapons. It sacrifices agility, but for more powerful shields, generators and heavier armor.


Frigates


The Frigates of Soter serve as support craft for the Battle Cruisers.
Spoiler:
 

The Intolerance Class Frigates, serve as the backbone of the support groups. They boast MAC Cannons, Missiles, HE batteries and point defense systems.

The Intrepid Class Frigates serve as small carriers, assisting Liberator Class Battle Cruisers in ship deployments as well as invasions.

Destroyers


Spoiler:
 

Firestorm Class: The new firestorm class is designed to be the perfect support for all fleets and convoys. The Firestorm is equipped with a small complement of fighters as well as the ability to arm and repair small shuttles. Their main armament consists of a magnetically accelerated cannon, as well a full compliment of missile batteries capable of launching both conventional and non conventional missiles. These Destroyers are considered to be among the pinnacle of support vessels.

Fighters
Spoiler:
 

Exterminator Class Fighter: Small agile and fast fighters, conduct both the role of fighter and bomber. Can operate in both atmosphere and space, the Exterminator class utilizes the best pilots and imprisoned smugglers that can be found. They excel in dogfights and annoying larger ships.



Ground Forces


Spoiler:
 

The Elite Ground Forces born on a hostile planet, are trained for thirteen years from the age of five. Taking only the best of those and washing the rest out into Soter Defense units, they are the Rangers. Their primary role is main infantry units, police officers, judges and juries. They have vast weapons, armors, vehicles and shields at their disposal to administer justice. Their weapons range from nonlethal to absolute destruction.

Spoiler:
 

Soter Defense Force
These are the rank and file troops of Megaplanet One. Coming from all backgrounds, including washed out Rangers, the Soter Defense Force is a very elite force, now upgraded by power armor, they come in three types.

Marauder Armor : The Marauder Armor (Marauder Suit) is the basic Power Armor used by the Mobile Infantry. Each armored suit is customized to fit each individual. The Armor is designed to give a trooper many times more strength, to let them jump over buildings at ease, and to deflect enemy fire.

Scout Armor : The Scout armor is a lightly armored variant of power armor which is able to jump and travel faster than regular power armor, for use in recon missions.

Command Armor : The Command armor is a more powerful variant of Power Armor, meant to be used by officers. The main difference in Command Armor to that of Marauder Armor is that Command Armor has much more communications equipment, and controls much more jump power and "juice" than the Marauder Armor.

Now for the serious part

Quote :

I'm sorry, what?
Nukes can apparently set a nation into bankruptcy, and your vessel is boasting a bunch of them? No.

Quote :
The Intolerance Class Frigates, serve as the backbone of the support groups. They boast MAC Cannons, Missiles, HE batteries and point defense systems.

For a second there, I almost thought that was plural. Wait, it is. MAC Cannons are massive and extremely powerful weapons, and you're planning on having multiples of them, on a battle-cruiser? Maybe a dreadnought, but certainly not a smaller vessel.

Quote :
Popular Issues: Colonization, Expansion, Food Supplies, Terraforming
Yeah, Terraforming is tier 3 technology. From a planet that was ravaged by war and is just beginning to explore the cosmos, pretty sure that ain't happening.

Quote :
Main Unit: Judge Boarding Party
Soldiers: Judges and City Defense Units
Plagiarism

Quote :
Megaplanet One, a planet ravaged by a nuclear war.
Only the Megacities managed to survive
After years of problems, finally, Megacity One, managed to rally all the other powers together under one banner, Megaplanet One.

Spoiler:
 

Ditto.

Despite just being completely copied, this nation is OP. I would hope that despite Gambit's enjoyment of the Judge Dredd series, he would be able to not give a biased response and allow a OP nation to be part of this rp just because it involves a series he enjoys.

Okay, time to nit-pick.

Popular Issues: Colonization, Expansion, Food Supplies, Terraforming

Terraforming isn't a level one thing, I'm not sure if you're saying that people are debating researching terraforming now, but you probably want to put that off for a while, since terraforming is a strong ability that will come in handy later in your empire's roleplay.

Strength: Tough. This means you have a strong economy, very strong. Most other nations started out with a military force at Moderate or Adequate. Now for your actual military. The first battlecruiser you listed has strong weapons, loaded with a MAC, nukes, lasers, and HE Cannons. This is all fine and dandy sure, but then you have strong armor, shields, and a great generator. Let me point out that firing all of this will drain your ships power fast, especially if you're getting hammered on the shields. I'm not exactly sure how this sits with everyone else, but it kind of looks like this thing is a super tanker that if someone pisses you off they don't stand a chance, at all.

Aaaaaand, for the elephant in the room. It's Judge Dredd. Plain and simple, this is Judge Dredd brought into the roleplay and given a bunch of ships. You used the same name, planetary information, and even the same system of government. I do believe we had an issue with people bringing stuff that's nearly word for word in terms of empires, and it didn't bode well with people. I consider revising it for the time being, probably want to change some things.

Judge Dredd I don't have an issue with.

Copying it blatantly and using it in RP I have an issue with. Also that ship is OP as fuck.

Probably not, but it was just referenced as a no no on the previous tech thread. Guess you're right, plenty of ways to counter it.
