OSO Historical Article

The OSO was a small dictatorship run by an ex-SAOY Nekovalkyrja on the planet Planet Osman.

More about the OSO

Below is a brief history of the OSO. More can be found by reading the many threads archived in this article.

The beginning

The OSO was formed in YE-38 or so by an ex SAOY Neko who saw the opportunity to take over a vulnerable planet and did so with the aid of some mercenaries. Soon afterward, the planet was under her rule, which led to many unforeseen circumstances in which she had to for once in her life take responsibility. Of course, she didn't, and instead went galivanting on many adventures, much to the delight of some of her companions, and the dismay of everyone she now ruled. Under the ex-SAoY Neko's rule, Planet Osman turned into a sort of anarchist dictatorship, with no organization and everyone reporting straight to her. Along the way, she picked up stragglers which began to form the basis of any sort of proper organization. Alex Patton was adopted by her, and soon formed what became the Sky Guard. After that, Jack Pine (at the time a soldier in the Sky Guard) created Section 6, which did much to advance the planet's technology in many fields, the foremost of which was military technology. For a time, things seemed to be going well, but disaster was around the corner.

The economic crisis

The OSO first major crisis began with the purchase of two battlecarriers by Section 6, which bankrupted the planet in YE 39. In the ensuing crisis, the benevolent local corporation, the Frontier Service Corporation, morphed into an economic syndicate to attempt to ensure stability. During this time, several other companies chose to leave the OSO in order to escape the chaos.

War with Psychopomp

In early YE 40 the OSO went to war with Psychopomp LLC, which had been conducting various shady activities within OSO borders, as well as having wronged many high ranking members of the OSO in the past. A multi-pronged attack took place, with Section 6 assaulting a base on a frozen planet, and Alex going after a manufacturing plant. Section 6 was met with a staunch resistance from Psychopomp, which had allied itself with NMX remnants. Section 6 forces were outnumbered and fighting a pitched battle until the timely arrival of the Sky Guard, led by Alex. While the battle ended and Section 6 evacuated its troops, Alex and the Skyguard took the pressure off of Section 6 forces by fighting off the massive flagship of the enemy fleet.

The Fracturing

Archived OSO threads

Arc 1: Osman

The future leader of OSO hires some muscle, and heads out to the Frontier to take over a local world. The local resistance coming to an end during a massive fight during a sandstorm, ending with the survivors deciding to work with the leader of OSO and Ragnarok. A spacer ship landing on the planet and attempting to harvest the population for parts goes a long way toward convening the locals that not everyone will be as easy going as the leader of OSO and Ragnarok.

Arc 2: Star Wasp

The Gang meet the I'ee, and decide to help save their home-world in exchange for the I'ee's help in building up Osman.
