I have a handful of things to muse about and posts to quote so as to leave self-proclaimed witty comments to, but first thing first.
The Sunday After (The First Post)Preface
Four. Four what? Well four factions of course. That is right, the first branch of this venture into the CoR-verse (maybe if I keep using this term enough it will be considered 'good enough') tells of the interactions between four different bodies of power. Three of them have already been revealed due to the first Supplement. The fourth though was skipped due to its position and power, something that is about to change (at least the part about it not yet being revealed).Content Rosenthal Imperium - Royal Guard
Thrown into disarray as the Itlan coup struck fast and hard against any opposition, the Royal Guard is nothing short of mess. Reduced to only a handful fo insurgent groups in the Core Systems and Borderworlds, the Guard is lucky for its bastion of hope: the Paradon System and the fortress they forged in the Northern Fringe. Turning the limited number of intersystem connections to their territory to their advantage, the Royal Guard has been able to hold the Junta's forces at bay, the latter being unwilling to show any strong commitment as long as problems remain elsewhere.
It is from here, in this sanctuary formed by a stroke of luck in an otherwise disastrous situation, that the Crown Prince rules what is left of his family's shattered realm. Itlan Junta - The Reforged Imperial Navy
The self-proclaimed interim government established by the men behind the coup that shattered the Imperium, the Itlan Junta heeds its name from its most important conspirator: Charles Gish Itla. The former high minister of the interior was the binding force that brought together the private elite and military dissidents. Every man or woman added meant an untold number of assets fell into the warchest of the Junta. The end result of Itla's scheming was the near destruction of the Royal Guard and imprisonment of the emperor, Douglas Milling IV.Iszenbeck Autonomous Zone - Industrial Vanguard
Created by an imperial decree centuries ago, the Iszenbeck Autonomous Zone represents a strong coalition of industrial powerhouses. Operating under its own set of laws, Iszenbeck seeks to create the place for businesses (especially those on the industrial side of things) to set up shop. There is a catch however: not only is the Director of the Autonomous Zone selected by the Emperor, but the administration is also contractually bound to stay by the Imperium's side no matter what. Thus in the raw production possibility of the Iszenbeck Autonomous Zone exists a glimmer of hope for what remains of the Imperium.Mascarenas Fleet - The Seamus Garrison
As the confusion caused by the coup d'etat spread like a plague across Imperial space, one man of power decided to stand against the change. Admiral Adrian Mascarenas of the 9th Fringe Fleet publicly expressed, at least to those that could hear it, that he would stand against the change in guard. With his fleet 'trusting in his sound judgement', as the man himself claimed, Mascarenas was poised to keep the Seamus system (and more importantly the Fairlight Corridor) open for the Royal Guard and Iszenbeck.
In a strange turn of events, perhaps after the defection of parts of the Junta's Fifth Assault Picket and the liberation of the civil defense arsenal in four systems, Mascarenas also declared his opposition to what remained of the Imperium. "Those that can not defend even themselves do not deserve to be" is the quote often cited by the Imperial intelligence group, Interior. Closing
Good news: the actual intel entries for all of these are far better written.
Bad news: they are still written by me.
i wish you the best of luck with this project
utilising freely available assets and freding short campaigns sounds like a good idea to me
Yea, it is such a great idea and I am glad he thoug- wait a minute.
While I was texturing it, I chose red for the Impervious because it's a...red shirt. Why not send the point home by painting it red too?
Something something all digital life is made equal, you're a monster, something else.
It should be "easy enough" to change the color striping (or make it team-colored even).
I am hella spooked by those air quotes. Something tells me I'll mess up hard in the most unintentional way.
Also, while working with Black Wolf's Constellation, used in my case as Axis-class Installation
, I think I had texture deja-vu
