Neshakushin Empire / Siege of the Capital
« Last post by Kalshion on Yesterday at 07:23:50 PM »
Imperial Palace, Kushin Prime
2200 Hours

Thunder boomed outside as the palace was awash with activity, palace workers were running from every which way while soldiers were heading toward the palace balconys. Amidst the organized chaos, the Emperor and Empress walked and inspected the troops as they went about their business. "They know what they are doing," remarked the Emperor, a My'leke whose his tail moved gradually side to side, "Then again with the capital world under threat.." his voice trailed off as the two walked through an open door and onto the balcony.

Rain fell hard onto the stone floor, running off to the sides and then down a gutter. The Empress, a Daur who looked to be no more than five or six in human years, glanced upward towards the sky. "They slipped past our defenses with a small force," she muttered with a scowl as lights began to appear among the clouds. "Weapons at the ready!" She walked toward one of the many gun emplacements that had been set up along the balcony.

"Empress, the city shield is active," one of the soldiers remarked.

Hearing this the girl felt a tingle on her skin and noticed a faint blue cast itself across the sky. Indeed, the city shield was active now and just in-time, a large force of starfighters suddenly broke through the clouds and headed toward the capital, their weapons ablaze. Upon hitting the shield several of the fighters peeled off, but some didn't make it and found themselves splashing themselves across the barrier and leaving behind a trail of broken wreckage.

Suddenly the air erupted as triple-A emplacements opened fired on the remaining enemies, splashing several and causing the rest to flee into the clouds. The torrent of fire stopped briefly, the Empress turned to her side and muttered something to another soldier, who placed their hand up against their ear and spoke a few words into their mic. This was followed seconds later by a thunderous roar that blasted the clouds away, leaving a trail from the point of origin to the point of impact, an enemy warship - measuring three hundred meters long - was struck along it's starboard side, a hole punched clean through with fire erupting from the other side.

The ship listed to port and then began to fall toward the ground below. Another boom, and another ship - this one five hundred meters across - was torn from steam to stern and it to started to fall toward the ground below. The sounds of the guns fell silent as the clouds quickly rolled back in, then the fighers came back out but this time they made their way toward the source of their allies destruction, only to be meet with a torrent of plasma and magitech fire that brought several of them down just outside of the capital's perimeter.

"Status of the 2nd fleet?" The Emperor asked.

The Empress, curious herself, swipped her hand across the air as a transparent screen appeared. "They'll be arriving via emergency jump in less than ten seconds."

"Destination point?" The Emperor asked, but his question was soon answered when the clouds were once again blown aside as dozens of vessels suddenly appeared within the planets lower stratosphere.

The Empress smiled, although this is somethign that the navy didn't like doing since coming out of Rift Space in-atmosphere was very dangerous and could result in damage to the planet or even the surrouding area, sometimes there wasn't much choice. The citizens lives were at risk and she wasn't about to play it safe and wait several hours. She looked at the Emperor, smiled, and then her body faded out of existence.

Stratosphere, KRN-Kojia

"We've arrived ma'am," the helmsmen said as the Empress exited the communications room and walked toward the center of the ship. "Holding steady at 30 kilometers above the ground, all ships are turning in," another officer shouted.

The Empress nodded and turned to look at the holographic display that showed the battlefield. There were over one hundred small ships making up the Vincon'hansaw Naval Force and only thirty of their own. "I feel sorry," she folded her arms over her chest and then grinned. "For them that is," she looked away. "Order all ships to fire, target the lead vessel and ram it!"

Chi'ka tapped her lower chin in thought as she listened and then nodded. "Ok people," she turned toward her crew and looked at them each individually before continuing. "Let's get ready to-," her voice was cut off when their comm's suddenly lit up.

Quote
Ground Force Command to all troops! Enemies have breached the wall, repeat, enemies have breached the wall! V'kaste's Legion is holding them back but suffering losses! Request reinforcements!

This was then followed by another voice:

Quote
Air Control to all fighters, enemy warships inbound from the east! Count five. Scramble all fighters, intercept.

The Shipmistress grumbles and turned toward the ship. "Looks like the plans have changed," she shouted and looked at the troops whom had come to their aid. "Board the Furi'ken, bring main weapons online and prefer for an emergency departure."

She looked at her marines. "Marines, report to CiC for weapons operations."

  • How'd you find Terrene Engima? Word-of-mouth, obviously.
  • What interested you in joining? Dissatisfaction with how that other site's staff runs things and the desire for a similar roleplay setting with 9001% less drama and toxicity.
  • Ever done this text-based roleplaying thing before? Nope. :^) (Yes, I've been doing it on and off for the past three and a half years.)
  • Any previous experiences you want to share? Not really, as I'll probably end up sharing them in Discord anyways... :p
Now for the questionnaire!

Do you prefer:
  • Playing male, female, or other-gendered characters? Male or female, but not transgendered.

Now it was Aiu's turn to be caught off guard as she was pulled back into Barb's embrace. She realized her words were a bit too blunt, a problem she tends to have. Barb was a sweet Daur who had an extremely rough day just like her.

Aiu wrapped her arms around him once again and tried to copy his tail hug, but her tail could only wrap around his knees. Instead she remembered what she did for her little brother for years. She reached her right arm up, a bit of a stretch for her, and gently rubbed his head from behind.

"It's okay, it's okay. I forgive you of course. We all get angry sometimes, I just wanted to ask that you don't let it control you. I don't think it would, but it was an emotional impulse for me to ask. Sorry about that."

"Please... don't become like them..."


Those words bounced around the boy's head for a bit, is that how she saw him? as somebody who might become the enemy? he needed to resolve this.

"No I... I'm the one that's sorry," Barb spoke as he looked down to Aiu's shorter frame, moving to wrap the floppy-eared girl in his warm embrace once more - holding back his own tears as Barbanov held her close and began apologizing more.

"I'm sorry, I'm so so sorry... I get mad but, I'm still me I promise," the injured, dirty and very sorry medic tried to convince her - he never had been in complete control of this anger that welled inside him, a force that built and built until he couldn't hide it anymore and it exploded. Today had been rough on everyone involved, so much loss and pain and confusion - it was a lot to take it.

"...please forgive me..."was the last thing muttered as Barbanov stood there in silence, his tail looking to wrap around Aiu's and ask for forgiveness as he embraced her - one clear thing was on his mind though, somebody needed to be there to protect this sweet girl and he couldn't do that if he was going to explode when things got tough.

"That's not... that's not..." Aiu muttered, but she couldn't form her thoughts into words between tears. She wanted to tell him it wasn't about her safety. She wanted to tell him about feeling helpless. Helpless and stuck watching pain and suffering all around her. Waking up surrounded by new friends dead on the floor. Violence used to justify violence.

And the thought of a friend being pulled down that cruel path.

Aiu had thought Barb was strong as he stood up against the enemy in defense of his crew with a reassuring smile. Now she wasn't so sure. He was fallible like she was. He needed someone to watch over him and keep him from steering away from that happy light. Aiu slowly pulled herself back, eyes still focused on his chest.

"Ah, I got a little blood on your uniform, sorry," she said quietly, rubbing the spot a little with her sleeve to try and clean it. She was distracting herself, she realized. Aiu sniffled to clear her nose, then looked at Barb directly with her bright sky blue eyes.

"Please... don't become like them..."

Barbanov's golden eyes widened as his fellow medic buried her face in his chest, for a moment the Daur was startled and caught off guard by the gesture until he heard Aiu's faint sobbing - that kicked the lad into gear, making him holster his pistol and wrap his lithe arms around her shoulders, the large and fluffy tail attached to his hind hugged around her lower back as Barb attempted to comfort her.

"...there there..." his voice gently muttered into one of her ears, a soothing tone that had all but forgotten about his own emotional outburst just moments ago - a few of the things Aiu said earlier drifted through his mind as Barbanov gently squeezed her, more used to the one giving hugs than being the one receiving them.

"It's over, you're safe now Aiu..." he continued, though he'd be lying if the first half of that line wasn't partially an apology.

Aiu'tarou shook as those harsh words ran through her head. She slid one foot back, putting just a little distance between the two. Her arms curled tightly in front of her chest.

Why am I so scared? The enemy I expected this anger from, but... a friend...

Then Barbanov dropped the pressure and sank his shoulders. He turned around and all Aiu could see was a young boy who played too rough and was being scolded. That gentle expression calmed Aiu a little too well, tears welling up in her eyes.

His warm hand on her shoulder broke the dam.

She closed in and squeezed him in a tight embrace, burying her face in his chest. All the stress and pain from the battle she had bottled up had broken and no words slipped out between the sobs.

Barbanov let out a loud sigh as the enemy gave up, a thankful sigh that dropped the boy's shoulders as his head dipped forwards - the medical fox's ears drooped slightly as his pistol's safety was flicked on and he turned back around to face Aiu with those large, golden eyes that beamed apologetically.

"I... sorry about that..."Barb's voice trailed off as he gave an apologetic smile and rubbed the back of his neck, those white teeth piercing through the partially dried layer of grit and grime that covered his person - hair and fur alike were matted with filth and would take a good while to get clean but he was just happy to still be alive.

There was a pained wince as he turned around, the leg was still tender after his improvised field-treatment of it but otherwise Barb was uninjured - afterall most of that blood wasn't his.

"How about you Aiu? you okay?" the boy asked his gentler medic counterpart, taking a moment to look the floppy-eared Daur up and down for any injuries she might have - gingerly resting a hand on her shoulder.

Listening, Ay'indri's lips drew down into an ever deepening frown. Well, now she knew where that transport from earlier had went. Or at least she theorized. Leaving the communicator open, the short Daur looked up. She had nothing to say on the subject beyond one word: "Orders?"
