Hmm, cool cool, can I take Benedictus Haig, out of Josephine by Gare. True "warrior poet" of the kind Rhade invisioned in TUM and leader of the Confederated Navy...

Shal said the Kerasu had a drift. I'm thinking, to secure allies, the Navy could be a small dedicated groups of ships used to keep other ships safe when they are in our territory and also act as police. Does this sound okay? I don't want to tread on RommieSG's toes...
I'm just leading a fighter squadron. This kinda seemed like Nietzschean Galactica to me, so I figured I'd be a Strike Commander. You think that's why I chose Apollo? ;)

You can run the navy. No problem there. :)

OKay, here are the characters as they stand:

Yosh*tsune Gaiate, out of Kitsune by Alexander, Alpha-to-be of Karasu Pride, played by me

Perigryne Omega, Chief of Karasu Intelligence, played by Shalamar

Apollo Kama, out of Fuijiko by Raiden, Strike Commander, (squadron leader), played by RommieSG

Shawntee DeLaruss, out of Shintau by Mikalos, Chief of Security, played by LTA

Benedictus Haig, out of Josephine by Gare, commander of the Izanami Navy (I'll explain in a minute), played Ilphi

Aura Libra, pilot of the Osiris, played by Mikoto

Plus currently unnamed characters played by Monique (Chief Librarian), Nikcara, Raeven, Senar, and Silverwind, and maybe Jid.

Okay, now for a little more information about the planet, ship, and world in general.

The Karasu's currently occupied homeworld is named Izanami (hence the slight change to Ilphi's title).  The planet itself is an Earth-normal planet, 50% of which is covered in water.  Izanami's orbit is filled mostly with orbital defense platforms, providing excellent cover and repelling power.  The Karasu's power base only extends as far as the rest of the 6 planet system.  So, the Pride is a relatively a small one.  There are some other defensive outposts and platforms in the system, but none in the concentration around Izanami.

There is only the one drift in the system, Chimata Drift.  Chimata is a crossroads for traders, resulting in a fair amount of traffic.  It is located in the orbit of a gas giant which is the fifth planet.  

The Karasu are very good diplomats, and managed to forge many alliances, or at least many non-aggression pacts.  However, now that their power base has been decimated, and they are homeless, it remains to be seen whether or not those agreements will still be honored.  However, as good as the Karasu are at diplomacy, they are even better in the ways of the warrior.  After they salvaged a few old High Guard fighters, they managed to develop three new classes of fighters:

the Kassai strike fighter (similar to the Centaur)
the Dai-Kyodu tactical fighter (similar to the Shrike)
and the Tachi atmospheric/low orbit fighter (similar to the Phoenix)

These ships, along with the Karasu's reputation and new find of the Osiris made them a strong force.  Unfortunately, the Osiris is almost all they have left.  The only fighters that were docked inside on the trial run were 25 Kassais, 20 Dai-Kyodus, and 5 Tachis.  However, the Osiris itself is a force to be reckoned with.  It has 800 ELS missile tubes, 200 PDLs, and 360 AP cannons.  To put this in perspective, the Andromeda only has 50 missile tubes, 12 PDLs, and 12 AP cannons. ;)  The drawback to all this firepower is that it is extremely slow moving and has negligible maneuverability.

So, now you've all got a taste of what exactly it is we're gonna be riding in. :D

With that done, I'm going to suggest that Shal and I talk with all of you individually about how we all fit in to this so that this thread doesn't get too cluttered.  General questions and sign ins should still be here, though. :)

Okay, profile sent off to Shal (I tried to carbon copy it to Gaiate, but I'm not sure it worked. . .).  

And. . . Macha Nisaba, out of Iris by Pter reporting for duty! :look: :D

I really shouldn't, with all the RP's I'm in already.....but I'm a glutton for punishment.....why not?

Already have an idea......Kyle Tanner, human, rough and tumble mechanic, engineer and experimental test pilot. Thinks he is the shiznit, and has the skill and confidence to back it up. Would probably been on the Osiris's test flight, as that's his thing......will get a full bio to both y'all soon.... :D

Okay, so if i read this correctly... ;) Just trying to get the fleet composition sorted out :D

I am in fleet command of 25 Kassais, 20 Dai-Kyodus, and 5 Tachis, the remnants of the navy.

I'd say thats enough to form 3 Fighter Squadrens? (The first two "active" squads have 10 Kassais, 10 Kyodus and 2 Tachis, the "reserve" squadren has 5 Kassais and 1 Tachis)

RommieSG commands the first elite squadren. Anyone else chiming in for second?
