The Most Powerful Battleship Of All Time

Postby Wv_Hawk_vW » Sat Oct 17, 2015 1:00 am

Hi there. I'm considering doing another story and posting it on these forums.

I have seen recent posts from Greywing, Joaconbfield, Deep Space, and Ginger. Guises occasionally posts, but his last one was two or three weeks ago.

Is there anyone else, or is that an accurate headcount?

Furthermore, as part of the story, it's actually been quite a while since I wrote Sci-fi. I have improved considerably as an author by practicing with much simpler genres. Looking back at my posts in The Merged Circular Alliance, you can see some rather slight improvement in me over time, but even the last posts I made were cringeworthy.

Hell, so many things were blatantly stolen from Star Trek. I started, what, 6 threads, without going more than a few posts into them? I'm just going off of memory, but those stories I was involved with don't have the same 15-year-old author that I am now. Three years may cosmologically be the blink of an eye; just long enough for a little space dust to collect; but mortally, three years is enough to change a person drastically.

Before I spend a few hours focusing on the Wiki and possibly missing some details, I'd like to take the less-risky approach of asking.

What technologies do each race specialize in?

How do their energies work?

My understanding is that the CC, MT, and RD act essentially as wild animals/space anomalies. Is this true?

Is there any seriously established standard that the HU, CA, XY, and TM go with?

Are there any other species in the universe besides the primary 8, or are the AR merely derelict objects from the primary 8 that are trillions of eons old and long forgotten?

What weapons does each race have at its disposal?

What materials are available for each race?

I have many more questions, but I don't want to overload the group with too many without knowing our limits first.

What technologies do each race specialize in?


Hard to tell, this question is to general. You have from energy generation to battle strategy, this can tell some of the kind of technology each race specializes, but is imposible to find everything. The question is also redundant for creature races.

How do their energies work?

:hu: Quite they install solar power plants in orbit around stars so the they can catch enough energy.
:ca: The basically make so that the anti-matter reacts with matter and convert all the radiation generated.
:xy: The branches of the trees, and maybe some microscopic holes in the crystal towers absorb the hydrogen of the nebulae and make hydrogen combustion to get both energy and water in exchange, its their photosyntesis.
:cc: Crude Biological Cold Fusion!
:rv: The basically get energy from the tides and waves of gravity.
:mt: Entropy energy is any energy that have gone from order to chaos, by means that can be anything that just floating in the void not going anywhere, The MT, which are likely anomalies, intercept such energies before the even up converting and ending in another cycle.
:tm: They basically open a rift in space-time and absorb whatever energy pases by, including RD
:rd: They eat any other type energy, even the energy that keeps the fabric of Universe (The pure Rift Demons)
:rl: Random RANDOM!!!

My understanding is that the CC, MT, and RD act essentially as wild animals/space anomalies. Is this true?


Pretty Much

Is there any seriously established standard that the HU, CA, XY, and TM go with?


HU, CA and XY form an Alliance.

Are there any other species in the universe besides the primary 8, or are the AR merely derelict objects from the primary 8 that are trillions of eons old and long forgotten?


They are the R# (Don't remember the number) and the Neyon and Tanyu.
Your question about the AR is actualy very interesting, I can't even answer that surely, must ask Greywing...

I have no idea of the last 2 questions, sorry.

Have hydrogen ramscoops been considered, in which a ship has the mother of all funnels strapped to the front, which then collects tiny particles of hydrogen to store for use in a reactor?

In the event of using a star, is a ship restricted to only using the light from the star, or can it absorb the fuel more directly from the star?

:cc: Crude Biological Cold Fusion!


Is it known how the CC evolved towards this? Are there inferior and/or superior evolved creatures similar to the CC?


:mt: Entropy energy is any energy that have gone from order to chaos, by means that can be anything that just floating in the void not going anywhere, The MT, which are likely anomalies, intercept such energies before the even up converting and ending in another cycle.


So essentially, the MT literally get their energy from decay. Is this correct?

Is there any seriously established standard that the HU, CA, XY, and TM go with?


HU, CA and XY form an Alliance.


What about the TM and RV? I forgot to mention the RV, but it's easy to forget details when you're over a year rusty.

Hard to tell, this question is to general. You have from energy generation to battle strategy, this can tell some of the kind of technology each race specializes, but is imposible to find everything. The question is also redundant for creature race


Do you know if, for example, the CA have battleships equipped with manufacturing plants?

Most of this only Grey can answer, but the CC are (in my opinion) less evolved now than they were when there were the 4 Tanyus. They had the Dragons, remember?

Oh yeah, Grey also say that the Dragons were also a different race than the CC, though somehow related, posibly allied.

Does anyone know what metals the humans, RV, and CA use in their ships? AR too, if that's possible, and since there is no single AR race, it'd be nice to know what race has a certain material if you're citing something.

Are the Mith'Ri'Aeil, Xyloxis, and Rift Demons biological? IIRC, they are, but I'm unsure. The Mith are most likely to be biological, if dimensional. The xyloxis probably have a crystalline cell structure, if they even have one at all, and I really am not sure about the RD.

RD are beings of pure energy.

I'm not sure what metals are used, but a few ones such as titanium are used for ship armor coatings as in Star Mass.

I never saw any metal references anywhere, not even in the 4th Moon site or Aeon.

In terms of Hidden Dimensions, the most powerful, standard battleship is clearly one with high attack and defense, regeneration, retalliation, resistance, and targeted damage.

Battleship

15/50

10 :rl:

Resist 3, Retal 3

All allied ships are healed for 5 every turn

0 : Deal 5 damage to target ship or base.

The definition of a strong ship is one that can do its job well. If we're looking for one that can kill ships easily, we need not look any further than the Spark.

1/1

1 :xy:

Destroys the ship which damaged this ship.

However, the spark has a flaw in that it can only be used once. If there were to be a ship which I think is the best at destroying its enemy without support, I'd have to say that I think it's the Void Engine.

On the other hand, I could certainly create a balanced, standard-ish card with more killing ability than the Void Engine, as well as being more dangerous overall.

E-Warfare Battleship

:rl: 12

12/40

Returns blocker to deck when deployed. Fast.

Disables blocker every turn.

0 : Reduces target by -2/-3.

Those seem too OP in my opinion
15/50 for 10 :rl: ? Too cheap
Resistance and retalitation 3, and a 5 all-heal, and a free 5 damage ability?
That, in my opinion, should cost 20, if not 30, specific and not random energy

E-warfare one is a bit more balanced, but it does 12 damage to the enemy base upon deployment.
And the auto of a scanner ghost? No. Too OP.
The acti is also OP.

I know these are just hypothetic cards, but if they somehow make it into the story, they would be too good at their job.
For reference, a Hiraga is a battleship.

As for the story, what about something involving the 3 MT bosses from Crystal Chaos?

I have made a decision about the story.

It will involve a superweapon known as the Titan Cannon.

75/20
10 :rl:

Immobile.
Drains energy from all sources, until it has drained 50 energy from each source, then loses Immobile.
Remaining energy: 50 :hu: 50 :ca: 50 :xy: 50 :cc: 50 :rv: 50 :mt: 50 :tm: 50 :rd:

10 :rl: : This ship gains 20 defense.

It is a weapon which accelerates planet-sized projectiles to 95% of the speed of light. Naturally, such a mammoth weapon cannot effectively be mounted on any ship except itself, and it is incredibly expensive to fire, but the destructive potential easily exceeds most other weapons without destroying the universe.

I have also created a small roster of ships that the humans and/or Alliance races have at their disposal.

Phoenix

Hiroto

Valiance

Thunderbird

Neyon'Moru


I'm going to also include a list of non-alliance ships that I can remember. This obviously won't be an exhaustive list, as I've probably forgotten plenty of ships.

Vegas's Nanonought

Ta'Yawhan Superbattleship (The one with the star inside of it)

Titan Cannon


I know that I'm always right, and I know that I'm always perfect, and I know that I never make any mistakes, but something tells me that I just spouted three false statements out of pure sarcasm and that I didn't complete the list.

What is the Thunderbird? The one with the mirror shield-y thing?
And the Nanoanought was destroyed, remember?
About the Titan Cannon: A single Nagato is able to destroy that only if it does not use the acti, most battleships would destroy it before you can generate 50 of each (I am counting the acti in case of the battleships: A Hiraga does 15 per turn, an exex 11, a Terror Mage 12, an Ultranought 15, a Queen 12, a Technomancer 12+att lowering, a GRD 16+acti and lets not even get started on the Voidbringer)

I thought Thunderbird was an unused name. Bacon, when did I use Thunderbird? I need to know this.

Also, I'm planning on restoring Nanonaught using technology. It'll take human tech to salvage it, but that sort of thing has never stopped the Rivi'i before...

Regarding the titan cannon, it's a weapon of mass destruction and nothing more. The whole point behind it is that it's enormously powerful once built, because it can obliterate nearly anything. Need a star to go supernova? Fire a giant slag of iron at it, and watch it decay. Want to wipe out an entire Rivi'i fleet? Fire the Titan Cannon at their ultranoughts, and watch everyone squirm. Need to make a political message in an extraordinarily dangerous and reckless way? Fire the Titan Cannon at Planet Xyth, and nobody will ignore your demands ever again!

And yet, despite being so absurdly destructive, the Titan Cannon is extremely flawed. It takes FOREVER to build, and no matter how well-hidden it may be, if even a whimpy Tarogi is deployed against it then the cannon is doomed. But I digress; 20 defense does seem a little too weak, considering that a player can simply reply with Shatterer, Charge, and another +1 attack bonus, so I guess it can have 30 defense.

Thats because it was "Thunderwing", not "Thunderbird", the name you used. :p
