Karasu Synopsis, or as one person put it I don't have time to read the novel!...so here it is ...

It was the Day of Betrayal
It was the Day of Destruction
The Day we lost what was ours.
It had been a year of promise
The year of success
And a year of joy
Now it was a new age
It was the end of history
It was the Day everything changed
The year is 325. The Pride:
KARASU


Cliff Notes: Karasu...

The long time enemies of the noble Karasu Pride, the Oni have made a sneak attack, aided and abetted by traitors with in.  The Oni's current Fleet Admiral Atilla, used to be Karasu, but was exiled after a failed coup.

The Karasu, well trained and better teched stood off the massive attack long enough for the Karasu's most recent find, the rebuilt Osiris, a Generation ship, to return from it's trial run and take the refugees from the Karasu homeworld Izanami aboard.

The Karasu have lost all but about 10% of their Pride. The current Matriarch, the current Alpha, and the current head of the Omega's are also dead.  The Alpha, Alexander in a rescue attempt by his son Gaiate. The head of the Omegas, at the hands of his granddaughter Perigryne when she discovered he was one of the traitors.

The acting Matriarch threatened the Oni with what looked like a remote detonator for a Nova bomb.  It was actually the remote for a Doomsday device deep with in Izanamis core.  Once all the evacuees that could make it off were clear the Osiris's A.I., Isis activated it.  Izanami is no more.

Now they are about to stream to Varin, a neighboring system, home system to the local Persieds, long time allies.

The Osiris is a huge ship, a true city in space, a sphere 40 miles in diameter, with massive weaponds systems and huge cargo areas, many parklike areas with lakes, shops, theaters, playgrounds, manufacturing capability, any and every thing one might need for spending hundreds of years in space...

The Doctor: The universe is big. It's vast and complicated and ridiculous and sometimes, very rarely, impossible things just happen and we call them miracles... and that's a theory. Nine hundred years and I've never seen one yet, but this will do me.

"This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is it vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished, as the once vital voice of the verisimilitude now venerates what they once vilified. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose vis--vis an introduction, and so it is my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V." -- V, making an first impression

Send it to Shal or Gaiate for approval, and they'll send it along to me. I'm just the webmaster. Nothing more.

And Brit, it's no problem. We're the ones that should have been able to keep it in our inboxes to begin with. :blush:

Also to reiterate to all characters...We have a huga amount of space available at Dancing Down Moon.  If you want maps, drawings, large size pictures, ect available on the web I can with in resonable bounds host it...
