NDC Military Ranks (Fleet and Armed Forces)

Section 6 is the division of the New Dusk Conclave(NDC) which collectively represents all branches of the military. A ranking system is needed for use across all branches and has been considered somewhat unconventional - however, the NDC ranking system gets the job done.

  • Paygrade: All payouts are in Duskerian Script.
Access Tiers

Below here is the full information and data regarding the chain of command for ground-based forces.


Roles in the armed service are designated by a job code. This letter code is added behind the class code, which notes a soldier's rank. These together make troop rosters easy to search for officers looking for troops to fill gaps in their squads.

Placement Codes and Registry Systems

This is the code system that marks a person's placement amongst the numerous ships within the New Dusk Conclave Navy or their position in the chain of command for those in the Section 6 Army.

Here is the registry system used by the New Dusk Conclave Navy.

Example: F1S12-S2

Code Explanation

  • F1: Fleet (F) 12), or in the case of the defense network (D) with number annotating planet. Space stations are (X), with number annotating planet.
  • S12: The 12th designated ship (S) in the listed fleet, or in case of defense platform (P).
  • -S2: Shuttle (S) 2, or if assigned to a fighter (F), F2. This marks which light craft (if any) the person is assigned to.

Manifest Listing

Here is an example of how New Dusk Conclave personnel are listed on the fleet roster.

The Biohazard Rapid Response Force is a task force of scientists and soldiers that have been gathered to deal with bioweapons and biohazards. New Dusk Conclave had more than a few incidents they got roped into and enemies that used unethical means of fighting. Psychopomp LLC and Hades were two such groups; thankfully Hades was eliminated in short order after the death of their leader and the mastermind behind their operations, Thomas. The virus carried by Parasite-Type Mishhuvurthyar has also been a struggle, as one of their members was a carrier. She died during the exodus in mid to late YE40. It was clear after she turned and infected two other members of Bravo Team and made them carriers that a solution was desperately needed. The BRRF was that answer.
