    RP: Francia [The Francia Frontier] Ep. 1 - Velkommen!

    "How the hell did I get roped up in this!?" grumbled a man in a Navy Uniform and an incredibly thick parka he had borrowed from garrison stores. "Standing in balls-freezing cold weather waiting a god-damned transport filled with nothing but fuckwit Marines is not something a Computer Systems...

    Gaming Homeworld Remastered Collection

    The new UI is fairly decent, remastered graphics are pretty damn good, and the gameplay is as good as I remember it. MAH NOSTALGIA FEASTS THIS DAY!

    Then I, as Abwehran Faction/Species manager, do by approve this character. :3

    @Aendri, that good ol' troll. Shame I'm already over that after several years of reading it. :p

    Approved Character [Francia] Armin Heidrich

    All right @Semjax, time for my little review session. Overall, I'm pleased with how it turned out. I just have a question. Is he supposed to be 34 Standard/Earth Years old? If so, you might want to make mention of that. Abwehran years tend to be long and Abwehran physical growth a tad...

    @CadetNewb, Foreign expertise is fine. Though the Abwehrans aren't a part of the Signatories, the Neps could always hire someone from the Foreign Services as an Expert in Abwehran Tactics and Operational Procedures (that aren't classified). Though @Sigma and I are still going over Nep/Abwehr...

    OOC The Francia Frontier

    @Aendri has the right of it @Semjax, considering the subspecies of Abwehran, most of the information is placed into the subspecies articles. For example, Skin Pigmentation is located here for Surfacers with olive tones being common in temperate regions, darker tones in equatorial regions, and...

    @Semjax Sorry, the Abwehran Character Generator is quite an infodump (something I've been planning on correcting). What exactly are you having issues with?

    Ship to Ship Combat and FTL

    It's good to be an amateur astronomer. :3 It's possibly, but I don't think it's likely. Heck, a good faraday cage around the FTL drive would enable a ship to protect it from that sort of electromagnetic interference. I think the combination of a planet's gravity and a star's gravity is a...

    Ship to Ship Combat and FTL

    Actually, the heliosphere isn't really affected by a star's gravity. The heliosphere of a system is caused by the magnetic field of a star, the solar winds from the star, and the outside pressure of the interstellar medium. In essence, it's a soap bubble around the solar system that forms from...

    Ship to Ship Combat and FTL

    Hill Spheres are rather synonymous with gravity wells, considering they're both a mathematical and conceptual method of demonstrating gravitational effects of stellar objects. The fact that planets orbit the sun means that the sun does have a hill sphere. In fact, it is believed that the...

    Ship to Ship Combat and FTL

    Ah, so it's planetary rather than system. I could see that for the CDD, which simply warps the fabric of space-time in order to move space around the ship, but I really can't see a fold drive operating that deep in a star's hill sphere.

    Ship to Ship Combat and FTL

    Hill Sphere Border is rather vague. Is it the edge of the system itself, such as the kuiper belt or is it a point where gravity is weak enough for it to have minimal effect on the FTL travel calculations? Or is it at the edge of the termination shock zone? The Heliosphere?

    Ship to Ship Combat and FTL

    I guess it depends on the technology of each ship, but any vessel with a CDD-style FTL drive is able to quickly get to the battlefield (or battle-space in this situation) with a short "jump". However, it can equally be true that vessels could use the same FTL concept to make a short "jump" away...
