    • Reminder   04/12/2016

      Hello! This is a reminder that just because your roleplay is taking place on the Nexus, it does not mean it is exempt from the rules of GC regarding roleplay. In the case of extremely public places such as the Nexus, making sure you post doesn't break these rules could be even more impertinent than in on-server roleplay. Rules such as, but not limited to the following: Roleplay of a sexual nature must be done in private, and any form of sexual roleplay involving characters that would be considered a "minor" is grounds for a ban. Usage of Unapped Technologies and Races is strictly forbidden outside of 100% fiction, such as Virtual Reality. Activities such as maiming, torture, or other excessively gory or explicit roleplay require consent to be done. Thank you for your time.

// A news article is released by the CNS, making headlines. It is a rather short video, opening with the voice of a human female, and footage of Caliphate and NAUSCM soldiers standing around in a jungle, looking quite content with themselves. //

    "As'salaam alaikum, today is a day for celebration. Today's conflict, already being dubbed as the Eleven Hour War, marks the final and stunning success of our people's combined armed forces against the supporters of our insurrection, the Sundew Tribe."

// It cuts to another, aerial shot, ICIF hovercraft zooming through the sky above the vast jungle, while a large, central tree burns and smokes in the center, clearly having been shelled and bombed. Large swathes of the jungle are also blown apart or exposed, making landings for the crafts. //

    "Eleven hours ago, the Royal Court voted military action against the Sundew, based in the next system over from Manara. Though the insurrection has ended, the floran menace had never signed the peace deal, and so was still in a state of war. Their inaction in negotiating a lasting peace forced the hand of the Court into ensuring their future cooperation with the ummah and dhimmi."

// Another shot of tribal florans, males, females, and children, marching in a line, through the jungle, escorted by soldiers of both factions. Some of the florans are off to the side, kneeling before an apparent imam who is holding aloft a Qur'an, preaching to the new converts. The sky is a smoky haze, and while the scene is grim, despite there being no corpses in sight. //

    "The Caliphate and its allies tally their total losses at around 368 soldiers, most lost in the initial landing before the aerial bombardments commenced. God bless these brave men, their slhms rest in Jannah now. General Idra Isa and General Ben Garrison were not expecting such a quick victory, but the sheer difference in technology, as well as air superiority, quickly ended the conflict. The fleet was meager, composed of robbed, jury-rigged civilian ships, which were broken through within the first three hours."

// Another shot to the large, main, burning tree, the base of which was entirely evacuated, though there were clear signs there was a village there amongst the fire and rubble. //

    "Within the next nine hours, the jungle was cleared to allow transport to land, and boots were on the ground. When the enemy could not be broken through without suffering serious losses, it was opted to directly attack the home tree. Suffice to say, this strategy worked immensely. They surrendered within the next hour, being fully surrounded, and offered peace by Idra Isa."

// The footage then cuts to Caliphate soldiers leading florans to a makeshift stage, where conversions appear to be going on. NAUSCM soldiers are leading other groups of florans into hovercrafts, and taking them up into the sky, out of view. //

    "Sarracenia, as they call it, will be renamed and rebuilt within due time, now a part of the ever eternal Caliphate. All natives are welcome to convert peacefully, and aid in the rebuilding efforts. Others will be tended to by the NAUSCM, for those who do not wish to integrate. The first plans for rebuilding are already being drafted, with schools, hospitals, roads and mosques being planned from the rubble, things which the planet entirely lacked before. A savage, primitive people, sadly needing to be broken by the fist of civilization so that they may heal into something far greater. Our prayers are with the good souls on Sarracenia that have joined us, and may their world be built into a paradise with our guiding hand. Peace be upon them, and peace be upon the ummah."

// The videos then cuts to a Caliphate soldier shaking the hand of a very recent floran convert, giving the camera a smile and a thumbs up as the news clip ends. Anonymous postings are disabled on the site. //

And I suppose that refusing to convert results in enslavement, yes? Evident here.

Slavery is an evil abolished by most civilized powers in the galaxy. If the ICIF claims to have conquered and then "civilized" these Florans, yet openly enslave them and trade them away from their tribal families, then they are not civilizing. They are subjugating. They are dominating. Taking advantage of weakness and using vengeance as a means of snuffing life and stealing it.

This was quite honestly one of the easiest "wars" I've ever taken part in. The only surprising thing to me is that everyone else is surprised. They're florans, and not even feral ones. It wouldn't have been much of a challenge for a small fleet of scavengers, let alone the ICIF.

// A picture is attached to the post. It's of a small platoon of ICIF infantry posing for the camera. Methias sticks out, not wearing the standard gear the other men have. The text on the bottom reads "Wish you were here."  //

((Lol what a nice thing to come back to after taking a leave of not playing so much to concentrate on real life things. Remember when rp was meant to be fun for everyone involved and not just meant to be a way for one group of people to get off on power fantasies at the expense of other peoples))

(( To my knowledge, the staff discussed an amount of time to give you to reply. My personal belief is that if someone doesn't care enough to come back to their creation atleast weekly, why should they care if the active members use it? ))

((Lol it's more than that though isn't it, the faction/planet could have just faded into irrelevance due to lack of activity on the galactic stage. Instead it has experienced the most masturbatory power fantasy crushingly humiliating defeat possible. I like playing tribal florans, there was no tribal floran group so I made one that I can play with and play characters in on the server when I feel like it. I don't care if the faction isn't a big deal, or has many members it's just meant to be a culture and planet to serve as a backdrop for some tribal floran rp when I or othersfeel like it. As far as I know this server isn't meant to be competitive in terms of PVP or faction versus faction. Jeez... people have lives outside SB RP, let me come and go from some floran rp when I feel like it...))

Are you actually so incompetent that you think the ICIF would have no say in requesting that an allied invading force not enslave people en masse? In the very post itself that you are responding to, the Caliphate is freely saying they're sending any who don't let themselves be forced into a belief they don't subscribe to a certain fate of enslavement.

why would the ICIF tell someone who just helped them take over an entire planet not to enslave the uncivilized population who refuse to modernize

What a day, when the enslavement of sentient beings is considered "modernized" and "civilized". You really are a people of pigs.

The website lists that you can request them with their teeth and their claws removed, or with implants within them that would derive them of their will. You're a vile person if you can look at that and think to yourself that a free life is somehow worse than that.
