Sci-Fi race RP (Name suggestions welcome)

Post  Gig on Sun Feb 01, 2015 2:25 am

An idea I have had for awhile, basic idea is its centered around an earth federation (NPC faction Razz), and everyone designs and RPs there own race who has either recently attained the ability to travel the stars or is an established galactic power already who looks upon these newcomers as potential threats to there power.

For an example here is my race/civilization

Name: Setran Empire
Government type: Theocracy/Empire
Cultural features:  Males and Female live separately the Female half of the species hold all political, administrative and religious positions within the empire, males are drafted into the Setran military immediately upon birth where they will be indoctrinated into military existence which will forge them into near perfect warriors to serve the empire.

All menial labour is done by slaves captured or bred in servitude, slaves are treated very poorly provided with the bare essentials so they can work at peak efficiency on a cost effective level.
Despite this slave revolts are incredibly rare due to the universal use of obedience chips which force obedience upon those implanted with them.

Ruler: The Ruler of the Empire is the divine Empress Setra, who is the immortal prophet and Demi-God who rules over the Setran people she is similar to the Dalai lama of the Tibetan Buddhist, in that upon the death of the current Empress the priesthood will seek out her reincarnation.

Racial Features:
Male: 9 - 10ft tall large and muscular have a pair of horns like a ram with claw like nails, and canine teeth, skin is normally a dark shade of blue or purple though lighter shades are not uncommon.
Female: 8 – 9ft tall muscular like the males but more slender in appearance also have a pair of horns and claw like nails and canine teeth, skin is normally a lighter shade of blue or purple  
Cultural features: Males and Female live separately the Female half of the species controls the planet which form the Empire, while the Male half of the species live in clans which travel the galaxy in fleet based raiding parties and war bands preying upon other species trade routes or even launching invasions of other species planets for slaves, technology and supplies. These clan fleets make semi-regular stops at Setran worlds to breed, to trade for supplies, such as ammunition, weapons, and most importantly fresh recruits.

It is incredibly uncommon for a father to ever meet his own children male Setran have no parental instincts at all, Female Setrans on the other hand will groom there daughter and will remain in close contact with there close kin such as there mothers, daughters and sisters, while sons will be traded to the clans.  

Formation: Nearly 20,000 years old The Setran Empire was formed by the First Setra most divine Goddess of the Setran people, who used her knowledge of advanced technology to unite the feuding Setran clans under her banner she forged her people into a nation of industry and conquest, while creating a sense of unity threw a common religion of her own creation.

Name: The Technocracy
Government type: Technocracy
Cultural features: Formally human all members are at least partially cybernetic, while all of the leadership no longer retain any of there organic form.
Ruler: The Senate
Racial Features: The majority of the population is made up on mindless mecha drones which are composed of harvested organic brains from over 100 different sentient species from across the galaxy encased within a metallic shell which look somewhat like the machines from the Matrix. Upon implantation into a mech drone shell the brain is mind wiped to remove any unnecessary data which is unneeded for the drone to preform its functions to the Senate, every drone is programmed to serve Senate unconditionally.

The Senate on the other hand possesses full sentience though similar to the mecha drones in being fully cybernetic, the Senate and other high ranking members possesses full sentience albeit an emotionless one, most members of the Senate take on a more humanoid form though still fully mechanical form.

Formation: Formed by a group radical scientist who abandoned the earth federation due to strict laws which held back there inhumane research into cybernetics and genetic manipulation, after long civil war the technocracy fled earth and ascended to the stars fleeing the victorious earth federation.

Since there defeat the technocracy has long since abandoned any signs of humanity now immortal machines, ruling over a empire of mindless drones and slave. With all morals and emotions discarded as unnecessary the technocracy openly trades with morally abhorrent and openly hostile species such as the Setran Empire.

Name: White Star Interstellar Shipping Inc
Government type: Corporate oligarchy
Cultural features:The members of the upper hierarchy are predominately human, although this is steadily changing as the corporation further breaks the links with it's planet of origin. Members of the financial elite in other planets across the galaxy have been taken in by the company and slowly begin to build their influence. Within the company values such as efficiency, ambition, as well as a disregard for morals form the core of the ideology of it's members. Sentient species from all over the galaxy that have these traits find they are able to find success and further their agendas by being part of the company,
Ruler: The Board of Directors.
Formation:White Star Interstellar Shipping Inc was the first of earths corporate entities to be considered fully space faring, already very successfully on earth, it was originally known as White Star shipping, W.S.S. traded large quantities of goods in freighters across the Atlantic ocean and around the world. Realizing it must adapt for the future, the company invested heavily in renewable and efficient power sources making several innovations which remain trade secrets to this day. Using there new power source they also began to invest heavily in space travel wanting to be the first company to be able to offer commercial use of space and it's resources. In 2049 it launched it's first manned mission to the moon as a publicity stunt, then in 2057 it was awarded an exclusive contract by the international community to supply earths new solar colonies, with the goods and resources they needed. This monopoly was astoundingly lucrative earning them hundreds of billions.

Upon the invention of FTL travel the company began to launch it's own incursions into space. It was the first human entity to come across alien life and used it's position as a middleman to further reap profit. By 2300 the company had evolved into an intergalactic conglomerate with assets worth more than the total value of earth itself, and everything in it. It now holds private ownership of planets purchased by space faring empires, It has 3 major space stations as well as many hundreds of small outposts scattered around the galaxy. There is barly a planet in the known galaxy left which does not feel the corrupting presence of the company in some form. It's spies and agents are everywhere stealing information, manipulating economies, and assassinating rivals. should a planet oppose them or refuse to allow them trade access, they will exert their influence both economically and with their agents on the ground to remove or destabilize the planetary government and attempt to install puppet rulers in their place. In other situation bribery is enough and the political elite will be willing to slowly sell their planet in exchange for personal gain and power. The White star Security fleet is their final form of defense and whilst weaker than a state fleet, being comprised of mainly purchased war ships. (A state is rarely willing to sell them state of the art equipment.) the supplement it with mercenary's when the need arises. Chafed by taxation and regulation the corporation has recently moved it's base of operations away from earth and increasingly looks elsewhere to sate it's need for profits and stockpiling of assets.

Set'ra (Empress and ruler of the Setran Empire holds “in theory” absolute power though in reality she is little more than a figure head, most of her power now being religious”

Set'ari (Duchess rules over a large swath of territory normally consisting of multiple planet, Although technically a vassal of the Set'ra, Set'ari are more or less independent answering only to the Set'ra when it suits there own goals, and agendas.

Set'tin (Countess rules over a single planet, most Set'tin owe fealty to a Set'ari and rule one of the Set'ari's planets on her behalf, paying there overlord tribute, some Set'tin though are independent and are direct vassals of the Set'ra herself)

Set'an (Baroness or governor rules over a district on a planet of varying size and importance, some rule over a single city while others could hold dominion over an entire continent Set'un normally owe fealty to a Set'tin and sometimes even a Set'ari)

Un'scae (Warlord or Warmaster a male title held by powerful clan leaders who command an entire clan fleets normally served by hundreds of Mal'car)

Mal'car (A male title roughly equivalent to Captain a Mal'car command a single ship of varying size most Mal'car are independent acting as pirates and raiders, some Mal'car prove exceptional and gain a reputation that causes other Mal'car to flock to there banner when this happens the Mal'car will assume the title of Un'scae)

Weapons
MLR MK5 Laser Rifle - A standard issue weapon utilized by Female Setran Militia, the MK5 laser rifle is a semi automatic rifle that uses heavily focused light to melt threw targets, the weapon incredibly cheap to produce and maintain requiring just a power cell or pack to function, the weapon has 2 variants the MLR(C) and the MLR(P)

The MLR(C) variant making use of power cells being the lighter and more manoeuvrable of the two variegates but also the more expensive (due to the use of disposable power cells)

The MLR(P) is the more common variant though inferior overall as a weapon due to the power pack and cable linking to the power pack increasing weight and lowering weapon manoeuvrability these drawbacks though are considered acceptable as this variant is overall significantly cheaper to produce due not only to the superior charge available in a power pack (more ammunition) but also the ability to recharge the pack removing the need to purchase more cells.

SPR MK3 Particle Rifle - An incredibly popular weapon among Setran warbands, the particle rifle is one of the most deadly hand-held weapons in the known Galaxy.

Superior in nearly every respect to the MLR MK5 laser Rifle, apart from cost efficiency the SPR is a Automatic – Semi Automatic rifle primarily used by Setran raiders, possessing superior stopping power compared to the humble MLR laser rifle, the SPR fires charged particles at relativistic speeds possessing the power to atomised armoured/unshielded targets in a single shot.
