1) Are the various human colonies ruled by the Big Four or are some independent. And would a nation that controls 5+ solar systems be considered a major power?

2) Would CONON launch any peacekeeping mission’s ala the U.N Peacekeepers?

3) Could Human nation survive against Helexith if the Helexith force was cut off and unable to call on reinforcements (like being ship-wrecked on a planet that the human’s had colonized) or if it was only Slashrim (limited amount of walkers/vehicles/aerospace craft)

4) Do the Big Four possess “normal” Special Forces? Like U.S Army Rangers or British Para’s.

5) Would the Sarran support a human faction/nation that was actively trying to fight the Helexith Coaltion. Would they share technology that the Human's wouldn't have?

How do Sarrans fly? They'd have to have specific conditions that would allow them to grow wings and be able to fly. Their bones would also probably need to be hollow, along with a bunch more variables; or did the Sarrans evolve on a planet with lower gravity than Earth?

Some more questions.

2. What is the Nova Refuge equivelant of C4?
3. What is this so called "Nova Refuge mod" and "Nova Refuge: Source"?

And one off topic, its been bugging me since I purchased Warrior Born.
4. What does the R in Justin's name stand for?

I could answer this. Nova Refuge: Source is a modification to a game which had a SOURCE engine. Or better said, will be, because there are only a small actions in there.

What's the range of your average civillan Starlight Drive ships? System to system? Or a big jump, to and fro, across the galaxy? This is of course before they run outta gas, and need to refuel.

Are the Natives limited to a set amount of starships following the Xenocide, like, no Native species may have a fleet size greater than Human Nation *insert nation*?

Since I may as well kill a few birds with a single stone... I 'shoped up that Laconic armor (finally). It's just a little re-color, and some chopping off of parts. Like what I did with the flashlights?

QUOTE (Terran Union)
From what I notice about Zygbar, they are of the Big4 Nations yet their military forces (judging the decals on your site) seemed to be similar to insurgent group, how do they fight other other 3 nations specially Xarkon being just north of them?

Are human faction only have bipedal (2-legged) walkers or they have at least 4-legged type walkers?

Does the Xarkon has either an Desert Patrol Vehicle or Humvee like vehicle aside from the Jotun?

Although in a form of drawing, ca I make a fan-made tank for the Xarkon based from the design of the Thyrm siege tank, since I have an idea of a tank that has the Crown of Xarkon design when look from above and in betwee the classification of walker and tank

Lastly is it really a standard for Xarkons to have every vehicles to bear the design of their crown (and their emblem)? Addition to this question is that most of the starship here are below 1 kilometer in lenght, are their other starship that reaches at least above 2 kilometers? (like those Pizza slice-shape Imperial starship from Star Wars and Covenant warships from Halo)

Although I'm not sure, but 5.56mm bullets is pretty ineffective by this time, so what is the most common bore diameter of a Blazer rifle?

1- Zygbar comes from a history of insurgent groups. That's basically how they won their independence from Xarkon: fighting dirty and even resorting to terrorism. And now that the Ultimate War has started, they'll be using those same tactics in many cases against their enemies, although their new Xarkonian allies probably won't like it much. They do have some advanced armor and weapons, however, specifically on what they call their heavy infantry. Some of their more advanced technology is "requisitioned" from their enemies, however.

2- They have some 4-legged walkers. These are mostly their transport walkers.

3- Yes, it's called the Hildisvin.

4- Certainly! I'd like to see what you come up with. I'm probably going to completely change the design of the Thrym tank since it looks so... spindly and awkward to me now. It's one of those LEGO creations that I'm iffy about. The name will be kept, however.

5- The Crown design used to be merely a tradition, not an enforced standard procedure. It has recently been made into the latter, however, so some older vehicles have simply been upgraded with superfluous armor panels to make them look about the right shape. The Bergelmir is one of these.

As for starship size, well, I've just never considered the GINORMOUS ships of sci-fi to be very practical. Can you imagine how much money and raw materials would go into the construction of an Imperial Star Destroyer, much less the Super Star Destroyer, which was 19,000 m in length? And then these planet-size vessels are destroyed by the ramming of one fighter onto the bridge (SSD Executor) or one torpedo into the right vent shaft (Death Star) and bam - enough money to build an entire fleet of smaller, more maneuverable craft is flushed down the toilet. So I like to keep my vessels of a more reasonable size, like 1000m or less. But yes, some may be bigger than that, particularly fleet flagships. Certainly Helexith's flagship - featured in the epilogue of Warrior Born - is much bigger. But it's rare, and there's nothing even close to a Super Star Destroyer yet.

6- Well, bullets in this time are usually propelled differently (HPG gauss technology) and enhanced (blazer shielding), so I usually use similar calibers to the current types if only for simplicity's sake. Most standard pistols are 10mm, for example. I never decided a bore diameter for the assault rifles though. I think I may have discussed the matter with Vorgain, and I'll certainly need to decide it eventually, but right now... *shrug*

QUOTE (Death)
1. I should have wrote the question better, i meant will there be any different species of natives inportant or not or are the current ones the "only" ones?

2. We talked about it in class that it would engulf the Earth and maybe Mars and a part of Jupiter but it also said the Sun might not engulf the earth but since the sun is gone life on Earth would be impossible anyways because there is no light from the sun and because the sun would most likely be an asteroid look-alike. The sun is a Yellow Dwarf which is bigger than a White dwarf but smaller than a red giant etc. I read that the sun would engulf everything that is within 2x the radius from the Earth to the Sun.

You might be right but i might be but either way life on earth would be impossible. But i did a 5 minute research on google so you are more likely right.
And since all planets that would not be swallowed(besides pluto) are gas planets so it's impossible for life, so NR can live on!

1. The six most important Native species are the Sarran, Mahlok, Achmer, Slashrim, Skrakki, and Draconians. I have also considered introducing an endangered species of more mammalian nature that was conquered by Helexith long ago, but I have no concrete details on them as of yet. Any other Native species would have to be small in number, not technologically advanced, or live outside the Refuge itself.

2. I stumbled upon an interesting research paper on the subject through Google. Here it is: http://www.nagt.org/...Dutch_v53n1.pdf The author makes many comparisons to science fiction stories, since really that's the only place it's explored. In brief he concludes that while the planet may not be instantly vaporized, certainly the surface would be destroyed and any life along with it. So yeah, like you said, either way life on Earth would be impossible.

QUOTE (Terran Union)
I see so the Crown is like a "national symbol"

It's Xarkon's way of distinguishing itself as a power in the galaxy to be feared. Think of the Crown being like Batman's bat symbol, striking fear into the hearts of villains. tongue.gif

QUOTE (Osolis)
1) Hey, what's up? How've you been? Long time since we talked, yeah?

2) Are you still going to be accepting fan fictions to your site? If so, if I completely overhaul my story about Ray and E'Oveai Rho and make it... you know... not crappy, could you replace the one that's already on the site with it? Because that would be much appreciated, seeing as how that old one doesn't represent my writing at ALL anymore. XD

3) How long, approximately, would it take to go from Ecirron to Terra Nova? From E'Oveai Rho to Terra Nova?

4) How's the Takeover of Mordark coming?

1) Yeah, I've been so busy with college I haven't had time to come on the forums like... at all. Ever. I had my wisdom teeth out this summer too, so that didn't help, although it wasn't half as a bad as I dreaded it might be. Although I feel guilty about not working on the NR site more than I have, Warrior Born sales have been pretty good and have even increased over the summer, so that's encouraging... But yeah, I'm good. You? tongue.gif

2) I know how you feel. I do that with my writing all the time. As for fan fictions, I'm not sure how to do them... I'd like some way to host them on a system like the forums, so that users can post them on their own without me having to copy and paste them onto the site. Sadly I don't know of a perfect way to do that, short of just making a board here on SSLF dedicated entirely to NR fan fiction. It may come to that, unless I hear of a better way to do it. Either way I want you to be able to update the fan fic yourself. Suggestions are welcome.

3) To be honest I'm still considering that. My plan was to make it take a certain amount of time to get from New Sol to Outlook (like, say, a week) and then calculate the other distances based on that. I want it to be short enough for military forces to respond to disasters within a reasonable amount of time, but long enough to get the point across that space is still huge and traveling it is still an adventure... Do you think a week would be about right? Shorter? Longer?

4) I wrote the story out long ago, but I haven't worked on the comic any since the last page I posted. I guess I should really force myself to finish it before the summer is over just because I hate having so many projects on my site floating around in unfinished limbo for years. laugh.gif So yeah, I'll try to get to work on that.

QUOTE (Bolty)

Kind of. I suppose they're chosen a lot like the Enomeg names, although TBH I picked Orion for Ryan simply because they sound the same and there are so many poignant references to be made to "Orion vs. Scorpio" from Greek Mythology, with Scorpio being Saber-Scorpion. biggrin.gif

QUOTE (Star Wolf)

2. What is the standard Achmer infantry weapon and what do they use as a standard weapon type(Blazer, Energy, Starfire)?

4. Is Harrier's custom fighter a uniqe type of fighter or is it a modified version of an existing fighter.
5. How does a wolf walker look like?
6. How do you make LEGO Sarran wings?

1. I just make up new animal species as I go. *shrug* An example would be the buzzard-like kegric bird mentioned in Warrior Born. Most of the ones that exist on Terran planets are basically Earth-like in nature due to parallel evolution. Planets with other ecosystems have more bizarre forms of life.
2. The Achmer mostly use energy weapons, from plasma to laser beams to particle beams. They have adopted variations of the Sarran blazer rifles for use against the Mahlok, however. Some of these are hand-held for personal defense, but most weapons made for war are built into the combat suits.
3. If it's a Nova Refuge story, of course you can use blazer technology. If it's your own universe I'd prefer if you used a different name, at least. wink.gif
4. It's a prototype for a new superiority fighter that has not gone into regular production yet.
5. Kind of like Manegarm, but without the rail gun and Fox Ear dishes on top of the head. There are a few other variations... I haven't drawn it yet, but that's what I have in mind. Oh, and they'll be called Dire Wolves now, with the Timber Wolf being a smaller model.
6. The ones seen on the site are made with wire and cloth. Two pieces of cloth shaped like wings are cut out at about the right size. Then a wire is wrapped around the minifig's neck, and the cloth wings are sewn over the ends of it. The wires inside the top of the wings make them posable, so you can fold them up or furl them out. I really need to make some more... right now I still only have one pair. laugh.gif

QUOTE (Dragon)
1. What is the maximum runtime of StarTalon handblades?

It's funny how most of these questions are for things I haven't decided myself... I'd say you could keep a StarTalon running for at least a few days non-stop, but they are usually only turned on when needed, and of course actually using the blade to cut something drains the energy and gas faster.

5) Would the Sarran support a human faction/nation that was actively trying to fight the Helexith Coaltion. Would they share technology that the Human's wouldn't have?

1) Nearly all colonies in Human space are controlled by one of the Big Four. In most cases, these colonies are mixed up within a single star system, though there are some systems claimed entirely by a single faction. And yes, 5+ entire systems with habitable planets would be a major power.

2) Definitely. In fact I was planning to make an RPG for the forums about just such a venture...

3) Yes, and in fact they already did during the Xenocide War. biggrin.gif

4) Yes. In Xarkon's case I usually call them Spec Ops Soldiers.

5) The Sarran and Achmer might support a group at war with Helexith in a covert manner, as I mentioned in a previous answer. But they would not do it overtly, so as to avoid breaking out in another galactic war. And they would be very reluctant to share any particularly advanced, unknown tech with Humanity, especially technology that Helexith might recognize as Sarran/Achmer.

QUOTE (Lord Boar)
Are the Sarran a good fighting force? I know they fight the slashrim and mahlok but do thay have a large standing army aat peace?

They are certainly a good fighting force. They keep a large standing army for defensive purposes, and their fighters are second to none.

The Sarran have very strong wings and chest muscles that enable them to fly on most Earth-like planets and give them +2 STR, but hollow bones that give them -2 CON. This, in addition to their +2 WIS, makes them quite good priests.\

1. That would depend mostly on the ship and its fuel capacity. A lot of civilian trader ships operate entirely on pre-existing trade lanes and do not have the ability to enter the Breach on thier own power. Those that do are usually military or exploration ships, and they are plenty capable of flying across the galaxy in as few jumps as their supplies will allow. Of course, it takes a lot of time, as I discussed in my reply to Osolis above.

2. The Humans have no control over the Natives outside Human Space, but those Natives living within Human space are not allowed to have a military fleet of any kind at all. As for Helexith and Harmony, however, both of them already have a fleet much larger than that of any single Human nation, even Xarkon or Victory, posesses on its own.

3. Looks good! It still looks awfully Halo, especially the shoulders and gun, but I like the colors and other modifications you did. Looks nice.

Well, you work with what you have. Glad you approve. I could probably find an excuse for them to use a gun that looks strikingly similar to Halo's assault rifle. Then again, Olympians for all intents and purposes are the Spartans of Nova Refuge, although, not nearly as tanked up. I like to dull them down as much as I possiblty can. I doubt even all twelve of them could stand up to a single Enomeg tongue.gif If I recall, I chopped off the fin at the top of the head and smoothed it out a little. It looks somewhat of a cross between Recon and CQB now. Removed a few pointy bits, especially the elbows. Painted over the handplates, etc.

2) GA had a equipment which they bought on black market right? Could they had some vehicles or aircrafts from any nation of the Big 4 and exists there a company, which produce a weapons only for GA?

3) In LEGO section, a Xarkonian engineers and medics had a different helmet, but I think I heard or read that they had the same helmet like a soldiers. Is that true?

4) Now this is VERY VERY VERY INSANE question, which is totally stupid, but I will try it biggrin.gif Is possible, that if anybody will send you, Mr. Saber-Scorpion, a fan-fic that large and good, that it would be a book, what you will do with it?

1.
Although not sure on this but, judging the preference of Victory over aerospace power and Xarkons prefer land walkers, comparing to a video game factions, is the Victory similar to the USA in the game Command and Conquer Generals since they are good at air power and blue color while Xarkon are based from the Soviet Union from from the game Red Alert 3 due to their walker force and red color? (This question is optional to answer)

2.
QUOTE
4- Certainly! I'd like to see what you come up with. I'm probably going to completely change the design of the Thrym tank since it looks so... spindly and awkward to me now. It's one of those LEGO creations that I'm iffy about. The name will be kept, however.

I see, also if I remeber it correctly, when I read the description concerning the main gun of the Thyrm siege tank, it is said that Xarkons don't rely on automated weapon such as UCAV, does this mean they don't have at least remote-operated robots and unmaanned aerial vehicles?

3.
Given that the Xarkons have powerful walker force and Enomeg super-soldier program, does Xarkons have professionaly trained regular soldiers or are they just conscripts trained lightly and deployed as cannon-fodders? ?

4. Despite all the naval warships are all submersile, do they still follow the classification of Cruiser, Destroyer, Frigate, etc. or do they use the classification such as "attack submarine"? Additional, do they save submersile ships as big as the current nuclear-powered submarines?

5. Do the Xarkon Space fleet operate in similar manner as the Carrier Battle Group of the US Navy?

6. Does all human Nova Refuge use the same power used to power Starfire blades to power their vehicles or do they use either fuel-cell, electric, "old-fashion" oil, plasma, or nuclear?

Xarkon, Victory, Yavakoro, etc aren't based on video game factions. Nova Refuge has existed far before C&C Generals or Red Alert 3 existed. Xarkon aren't red because Scorp decided that he was going to copy the Soviet Union (how are they even similar, anyways? The Soviet method is numbers, numbers, numbers. Xarkon is less so.), Xarkon are red because red is a really awesome colour. Victory are more or less based off the IRL western world. They've got their inspirations, but they're far from video-games, especially C&C.

Also Do you think this helmet would work as an enomeg helmet with a paint job and decals?this?
