  1. Faction Name: Task Force 100 (X) Faction Alignment: Lawful Good Technology Level: Futuristic The Task Force was a victor in the pyrrhic war on Earth. Even though it came at the heavy cost of life lost to allies, the Task Force itself managed to not occrue heavy losses (the number of MIA, and KIA TFX soldiers was much less than the other factions, rolling in at around 3 thousand). A lot of anti-TFX sentiment was unsuccessfully planted in the hearts of the citizens on Earth, who are now largely able to start rebuilding, with the horrible exception of China, which lost nearly all of it's inhabitants and is now a wasteland (the blame for this is pinned on the Terran Command), and Russia, due to Robotnik's last strike on the Continent. However, the fighting had moved elsewhere, and the Task Force needed to chase down the war criminals. Bolstered now by Mechvaraans, ex-IOT forces, and the United States, the Task Force takes back off into space after retreating enemy forces. However, there is still much to be done, many refugees to be taken care of, and a lost planet appears...what happens next? The Task Force is an elite force that is trained for multiple situations. Every member knows how to use multiple vehicles, in case of emergencies. The Task Force has an intricate method for recruiting. The background checks are extensive, and acceptance usually takes a month. It's extremely hard to infiltrate the organization because you can't just throw on a uniform and claim you're one of them. There are several classified deterrence methods (I refuse to say them because I don't want people using this as a way of suddenly knowing how to infiltrate the task force. The idea is that it is really hard, and you're gonna have to do it by trial and error). In combat, everyone works together, utilizing tactics and several approaches. Everyone works together in order to find weaknesses. Another important thing to know is that there are no nanomachines used by the task force. They are highly efficient in combat, and it takes a lot to make them even slightly afraid. They are not to be portrayed as inept, stupid, or easily dealt with. Their biggest drawback is the lack of manpower, which however, is now starting to disappear with the addition of more aliens into the ranks. The forces are accepting of xenos, and everyone is treated equally. With the exception of war criminals and high ranking enemy officials, Task Force prisons are not harsh and degrading, and interrogation is usually done by 2 "nice guys". The sprites are on my deviantart page. However, there are several updates that have since occurred and the sheets need to be updated.
  2. Welcome to the forum! Be sure to join the Discord, friend!
  3. Ayyup.
  4. I'll move the topic for you, mi amigo! Welcome!
  5. Here it goes, short but sweet. I worry too much for too many people, who probably don't care about me. What do?
  6. Faction name: Task Force 100 (X) Alignment: Justified Good Tech Level: Advanced Home Base: Kait'hur Task Force 100 was made as a solution due to terrorism in the Middle East, as well as other parts on the terran planet, Earth. These soldiers fought some in some of the hardest battles, and diffucult conditions. These people and aliens had tried their hardest to defend their countries and planets. Several of these men and women made names for themselves as some of the most selfless and hardworking men and women alive. After the NATO disbanded, several soldiers from divisions of the armies from the former NATO decided to join together and help defend Earth. As time passed on, more volunteers and other ex armed forces members decided to join the disavowed military members, forming a strong faction, adept at assault and defense. Eventually, mobians joined forces with the Task Force, as well as kaithe, xorgs, virox, wolven, and a few kragolyte refugees. Slowly growing from the ex-NATO, soldiers from all flags, and eventually other planets, began to unite for the greater good. TFX operators are extremely well trained, compared to several of the factions they have fought. Their skill level borders the limits of what a faction can do. However, it has come at great cost to the soldiers. Many a time in the Task Force history, has there been catastrophic loss. After the events of GC2, TFX is at a new high. Elite soldiers of all nationalities, and several planets, are serving together. The Task Force has become much larger, and it is a well oiled machine. While TFX relies on technology, it can operate without it, which is the most important thing. TFX does not use nanomachines, and every soldier in TFX undergoes a very physical and psychological test to make sure they are truly fit for the job. The training has produced several bi-products, such as immunity to mind control, and a heightened level of awareness. IMPORTANT CHARACTERS Orion Michael Irving: Orion is the leader of the Task Force. While he may not always be on the front lines, he has a unique skillset and is a seasoned veteran. He often issues orders, along with Colonel O'Leary, and was responsible for the Kaithe-TFX alliance, which became permanent. He has gold and slate gray armor, and wields an assortment of weapons, dependent on the tasks at hand. Richard O'Leary: O'Leary is Orion's head field commander. Like Britain's Montgomery, Germany's Rommel, and America's Eisenhower, he is a stoic and very smart leader. He is someone who helped found the Task force, and has strong interest in helping the Kaithe. Patrick "Chernobyl" Kolevano: Chernobyl is an ex-spetz soldier who survived a nuclear blast, and exposure to a deadly amount of radiation. Augmented by the radiation, he became stronger, and suffered a genetic mutation that made his eyes turn blood red. Don't be fooled, however, he isn't evil, even though his armor is black and red! Rees "Red" Noble: Named after one of the men who lead America's "Great Escape" from Stalag Luft III in WWII, Red was already destined for greatness. Task Force soldiers are portrayed like an elite unit. They think things thoroughly. However they are not mindless war machines. They have hearts and souls too! Up to date TFX sprites can be found on my deviantart: https://monstarules.deviantart.com/
  7. Weigh your options, maybe consider a 3rd party service.
  8. It's not always perfect.
  9. That's going to be rough. You might need to have a third party help you
  10. I like Mandemons image for a contested marker. Anyways guys, reopening this thread. Let the discussion continue.
  11. WELCOME TO THE INTERSTELLAR CAMPAIGN This is the official registration page for Sprite Wars' Interstellar campaign. If you have not already, I would suggest you read the GC2 comics, as well as the Interstellar introduction, as they will give you more information on the current situations regarding the main SW canon. TABLE OF CONTENTS Registration Information Registration Format Registration Information In order to play in this campaign, you must first register. That's kind of a given, but before you register, you must have basic military sprites for your factions, because without them, you will be unable to make comics, or have responses directed towards you. I think the best quote we can take, is "If it isn't sprited, it doesn't exist". The next best quote is "If you need it, make it". When you register, you agree that you will be making comics and responding to the people who make comics towards you. Now again, the first bit of this campaign is largely going to avoid large P2P confrontations, and if you do enter into an all out war with a faction early, be wary of other factions who may stumble upon your fighting. I've digressed. There is going to be plenty of time to make sprites, even if you don't have the ones you like just quite yet. Just have something to work with. Because when the fighting really starts, you will be in for a shocking defeat if you are not prepared! Registration is just as easy as filling out the format below. Registration Format Below is a good guideline to follow for registration. ------------------------------------------------ [FACTION INSIGNIA] (if applicable) [THEME SONG] (if applicable) Faction Name: Faction Alignment: Technology level: [DESCRIPTION OF FACTION] [NOTABLE PERSONS] (if applicable) [HOW TO PORTRAY FACTION] Links to Sprites: ------------------------------------------------ I suppose you get the gist of what is needed. You can add more if you would like, but there are certainly things that you NEED to include in the description, so that we can make the Map properly. It is your factions profile, after all! Take a look at how some of the past factions have done it. To register, just comment with your faction information.
  12. Welcome to outer space. This is going to be the next campaign to start. This is mainly going to be something that is going to be on low heat during the majority of GC3. We've had a spike of inactivity, but the cure to inactivity is a small group starting to do something (and something DIFFERENT!), and since this campaign was desinged to start off slower, with more of a focus on each personal faction starting off, it is perfect since several comics are really going to be personal, revolving around each specific faction. I suppose we should give a bit of background as to what has happened, and to the situation that is currently leading into this campaign: "The sitiuation on Earth...is dire. The IOT has fallen. The Task Force and Mechvaraans have exhausted theirselves with damage control, and are now no longer based on-planet. Evil lurks, as hostile factions have retreated and watch hungrily for their next target. A decent portion of North-Eastern Earth (Mostly mainland Asia and Russia) has been irradiated and damaged after the events of the Battle of Heaven. In addition to this, there is a massive terminator-like outbreak that is currently bordering Europe, and Western Russia. However, there is hope! The Terran Command has fallen, with the remaining members being pursued by the Executors, Task Force 100, and the Mechvaraans. More importantly than this, is a new planet recently discovered in our solar system, which has the ability to sustain life. The people and factions of Earth prepare for their Exodus into the wild...while far far away, many more factions are preparing for inevitable war with each other, and against a great evil, that has yet to show it's face." Basically, Earth is slowly turning into a Fallout/Terminator/Mad Max style mess, and it going to probably not be showcased a lot in the main campaign after the first 4-5 pages, due to the new planet. Since the situation on Earth is becoming dire, a lot of GC3 is also going to be focused on exploring and establishing bases, but unlike Interstellar, GC3 is much smaller, and you will be running into trouble with other factions, and wildlife almost immediately, whereas in GC3, your main issue in the begining will be lack of resources (for factions that are just starting off), and pirates. Anywho, do not be fooled, when Insterstallar becomes the main campaign, you will need to respond, as these first several pages of mostly quiet comics are your chances to gather a lot of resources and build your armies...if you do not, you're in a heap of trouble, because when huge battles start to occur, you will find yourself having to run away into the wilds, or you may even find yourself facing utter destruction at the hands of multiple factions. Some factions, such as the Task Force, Axonians, Alliance to Restore the Mechvaraan Republic, Voltor, Liberalis Terrae, Mazenovich Empire, and Kragoltyes, are already well off, as they control planets (and in the case of Voltor and Kragolytes, entire galaxies) and have decent forces already available. As it stands, there are currently several people and factions who have expressed interest in joining this campaign. Some factions may not make an appearance under their original owners. Regardless: what is the goal? To explore! The galaxy is literally your oyster, but if you are going big, you have to make sure you have the forces and materials to KEEP yourself big. Expand and make your faction the best it can be! Protect your property, work with or against the government, do whatever it takes to lead your team to victory. The galaxy is a huge place...there are a lot of places to hide, and bide your time. Don't be in a rush to get killed! This is going to be the last thing said. When will it start? As far as a starting date, I think sometime in mid September will be good, as it will be giving us plenty of time to redesign sprites, make more sprites, and to design backgrounds. For the first several months, it is going to be laid back..so by the time battles are going to be in full swing...it only exists if you have it sprited. There is going to be plenty of time yet to make sprites for your faction, and there are people who are willing to assist you in making sprites for your faction. In fact, they probably would love to help! Rules and registration topics will be made shortly as well.
