Due to the size of this battle, there are certain problems that have a statistically significant chance of happening, but due to the potential awesome I will disregard those dangers for now. We don’t have to worry about the battle getting stepped on because it’s LDD; however the file is nearly 17000 pieces big, saving takes a full 45 sec.-1 min. For one, expect relatively large delays between turns. There’s lot’s of lag for moving pieces and I expect there to be lot’s of carnage during the battle. Second, there’s a good chance it will simply be too much for my computer and it will be forced to be baleeted. By signing up you accept all these risks and won’t bitch if any of them happen. Pray to the dice-gods for fortune, and if you’ve reached this sentence, then remember, together we pwn!
Danedal. When the Praetorians found the planet shortly after arriving to our galaxy, they jeered at its utter uselessness-no life, no resources, just a strange gaseous purple atmosphere and a frozen hell below. Nobody would care.
Fortunately, wars raged on elsewhere in the galaxy, and the Praetorians realized no planet could be wasted. So they began a primitive shipyard. It churned out fighters and frigates around the clock.
Soon enough, it evolved through the ages...
Today, the Danedalian shipyards is the main producer of battleships and mega-carriers for this sector of Praetoria. Defended by no less than 13 battleships and 4 mega-carriers, it has recently received defense fleets from Trattoria, USA, MASS, and Zupponn Mining Co.
As ordered by the delegation of Luchardsko in the Third Alliance, they have sent a fleet of ships to strike back at the AN for damaging the RIN’s RT asteroids. The Scythians have also joined to revenge the death of Captain Conor Kole and his crew. But most importantly, the Briktoid Automata has provided the jewel of the fleet, the Grond of the Third Alliance, the Conifer-class super-dreadnought.
The Praetorians are determined not lose their valuable shipyards to the Third Alliance. Includes the yards and the fleet except for the mega-carriers.
Praetorian Carriers and Fighters: darkpaladin
The Praetorian carriers will back up their battleship friends. Each carrier has 6 fighters in its holds.
Sent to the Praetorians before Siri’s coup, these Trattorians are almost as loyal to Praetoria as the Praetorians themselves. They are cautious about shooting the Scythians and thereby worsening the diplomatic situation, however.
The USA. With giant OTCs. ‘Nuff said.
The MASS, while one of the smaller players, can still make a different with their 6 cruisers. Here’s to hoping they are as effective as they are in Winter Has Arrived.
Zupponn Mining Co.: Zupponn
The Zupponn Mining Co. have been paid to provide further defenses to the Praetorian positions.
The Scythian Empire is one of the biggest factions on the board, with 4 Monarch butterfl... I mean battleships and 2 Emperors.
Briktoid Automata: badagle
Conifer-class. Be afraid.
Kind of hard to get an overview, but Bavarian ships are the blue ones surrounding the Conifer.
I must say, the RIN looks very impressive all lined up like that. I would recommend designing bigger ships though, they’re all very small compared to the behemoths shooting at each other in this battle.
Avalonians: Semaj Nagirrac
The Avalonians are one of the two smallest factions on the board. Will they be able to pwn the Praetorians like they do in Winter Has Arrived?
The Akkadians are a bit reluctant to get involved in the whole AN-TA war, but have regardless sent a token fleet to help the war effort.
Secret Faction A: Falk
Let the games...
