Group Info

Welcome to the Ancerious Galaxy.

A place of mystery, war, and intrigue on a large scale.

The galaxy welcomes all who reside within its borders, and while many ended up here by accident, the resources and relics this place holds are more than enough to draw others to it. Cut off from other dimensions and residing within its own realm, Ancerious creates wormholes to other realms like tendrils seeking prey.

Many empires reside here, and many have come and gone over the billions of years. Some have fallen, others retreated, while others still fight over the galaxies' riches. Wars rage and Alliances rise and fall. Just the way things are in Ancerious.

Will you enter the struggle?





Group Description
Ancerious is a sci-fi fantasy co-operative writing group centered around a group-specific canon that has the capacity to change in reaction to any member's actions - all while remaining uniquely separate from each player's own preexisting canon. With more than fifty certified members, we have a wide array of individuals from countries all over the world and all with their own specialties, from art to our focus of writing.

As a parallel function of the group, we serve as an outlet from people's daily lives, either independently or co-dependently through our art and writing. If you enjoy a social worldbuilding scene, admire our art, follow our writing, or just like memes, we invite you to join the discord server, even if only to be a guest.

We've been around since 2012 and continue to grow. If you can brave the storm that is our unique sense of camaraderie, there are friends to be made, fun to be had, and stories to be written. No matter if you just want to stop in and have a look around or make an attempt at sticking around for good, your key is direct contact with us - The best way to do that is to read on and find our discord link in the "How to Join" section!

How to Join

How to Join



1)
The absolute number one step is to familiarize yourself with the group rules - docs.google.com/document/d/1_k…">here.

2)
Don’t be shy! We have a discord, which can be found here!

3)
If, after joining the discord and talking with the Admin-Moderator board, you’ve decided that you want to join as a member, begin work on your nation(or character!) sheet; the simple version can be found here, or if you want to go the distance and fill out everything, a more complex sheet can be found here. If you’re playing a character, that form can be found here. Upon completing one of these forms, you’ll be promoted from a hopeful to an aspirant.

4)
In order to become a member rather than an aspirant, there’s a bit more complexity involved - maybe a little less if you chose to complete the complex nation form. You’ll need to complete a story within the group - or at least participate in a satisfactory capacity - as well as begin work on a couple more forms that encompass some more detailed elements. It’s not as daunting as it sounds. The forms in question are the force declaration and the species biology form. Disclaimer; the former isn’t necessary for character players, and the latter isn’t necessary with those who write humans.

Admins

Staff of the group. Admins have general power over the group, while Moderators either have specific powers over elements of group functions or are holding an honorary moderator position.




If joining via DA, please be sure to contact an Admin, not a moderator!

Ancerious Ancient TimelineAncerious Ancient Timeline:AME: Ancerious Modern EraBMA: Before Modern EraAAE: Ancerious Ancient Era-???AAE: In the BeginningIt is unknown exactly how old the Ancerious galaxy is, whether it was one of the first formed after its universe's creation or one of those that formed after is just one of the many mysteries. What is known is that the galaxy is truly ancient, having been reinvigorated over the billions of years by the occasional galactic collision. Ancerious however has always been a realm apart from others, only in this ancient period it was far more pronounced.-Tens of Billions of Years Ago AAE: The Holy Logos:Far into Ancerious distant past the psion field was not only still present, but it was MUCH stronger. Rather than its present form as an invisible and subtle field, the early psion was much more strongly coupled to the other fundamental forces of the universe. It was a tangible and sentient entity which represented the majority of the early universe's mass-energy distribution and as such it dominated most of its physical behavior. This force, which was strong and omnipresent enough to affect everything from the layout of electron orbitals to the rotation of galaxies, would be known millions of years later, long after its demise, as the "Holy Logos" by the sentient species of the galaxy.The Holy Logos was a precursor to but not quite an example of primordial consciousness. As it was a property possessed equally by all matter and energy, the Logos had no subjectivity, no sense of self and nothing besides itself to observe. Like other features of the early universe, however, the Holy Logos was not to last and the gradual cooling of the cosmos would cause it to undergo several important state transitions.-Billions of Years Ago AAE: The March of Time:Just like the first stars and the grand unified forces which existed for brief moments within the right conditions of the universe as it began to cool down with age the Psion field began to gradually weaken. As it weakened over billions of years it underwent critical phase changes all interspaced with massively long periods of unstable equilibrium, similar to phase changes of water between massively cold temperatures and just above freezing. While the changes gradually marched on with the universe's expansion and cooling the Logos endured and continued to permeate all that was, albeit now with a much reduced power. A power that was as time went on becoming rapidly more unstable.-180 Million Years Ago AAE: Pilgrims:Despite its decay the Logos power was truly incredible, and in its current state had properties which were not only similar to, but also eclipsed the metaphasic substance known as Athenite/Erebite used by the Nakai and Huixoatl. While perfecting the substances quantum structures themselves the two joined nations (Not yet in the grip of the War of Giants) soon discovered the Ancerious galaxy and sought to investigate, to use the Logos as a potential source for yet greater perfection and power. Together they forged a Quantum bridge between their two realms and attempted to explore the realm for whatever they could need. During this period they constructed numerous outposts and even colony worlds within the galaxy's core and studied the Logos and the psion field in extreme detail seeking to learn all they could.-179 Million Years Ago AAE: Birth of the Expanse:The Nakai and Huixoatl continued to observe and even experiment on the Logos using their mastery of the fundamental forces. However the psion field after all this time was already becoming rapidly unstable due to the march of time and the cooling of the universe, still the two nations continue to push, wishing to not only delve into the greater secrets of meta materials but also discover if there was a way to create the ultimate Judge, a being that was not some artificial vessel but a being of such power as the Logos at its height, able to permeate all of creation with its power. Factions within the twin nations sought to elevate their species to such a combined power, to ascend into a single unified being of such awe. Alas the two pushed too hard and too fast, while manipulating the fundamental forces and the Logos the psion field changed phase state, a change which was absolutely disastrous and whose energy differential was previously unseen by the two factions. In an extremely brief time both factions within the galaxy along with most of their holdings are wiped clean as the resulting psion energy wave destroys all before it. The differential between the first and second vacuum states of the psion field however are so big that the resulting phase change and energy release destabilised spacetime at its point of origin and formed the Golden Expanse as well as completely breaking the symmetry of the Ancerion field, creating the expansive particle physics model observed in the galaxy today. In an instant the Nakai and Huixoatl in their arrogance had wiped themselves clean and changed the galaxy forever.-179 Million Years Ago AAE Ancient Legacies:While the Nakai and Huixoatl had been wiped from the galaxy with only a handful managing to escape their technology had also for the most part suffered similar extreme damage from the sudden phase shift of the fundamental force. While ruins and time schisms still existed within the roiling tempest of the Expanse (Much more extreme in its infancy) one piece of technology did survive, albeit in an extremely damaged state which would create a legacy affecting right up until the modern day. The Quantum bridge that had been constructed to allow the twin nations to arrive in Ancerious had survived the cataclysm, but its connection to its home continuum had been lost, like all technology of the Nakai this semi sentient platform tried in vain to reconnect to its homeverse in a never ending process which would see it spawn new wormholes to other realities right up until the present day. Due to its damaged programming the bridge would create a wormhole and if nothing came through it would close it fairly quickly within months. But if something did come through then the bridge would stabilise the connection allowing whatever it was to pass into Ancerious from beyond and back again, thinking it had found its home. But alas each time it stabilised a connection it would rapidly forget and lose the data, still stabilising the gate but now realising it had to find its true home again and creating yet more wormholes repeating the process endlessly. Even in its decayed state the Bridge still creates wormholes to this day, the silent bridge which even now has allowed its lost children to come home.-170 Million Years Ago AAE: The Overmind:The Overmind was the sole source of sentiency in the entire galaxy and it received the sensorial input from Ancerious' entire biomass. With its seemingly-limitless intellect it processed the information coming from all of its representations and ordered them to carry tasks to further its own existence and reach.Sensing the particular qualities of each individual species that evolved in every world of the galaxy, the Overmind gave each species a distinct role. Humans, for example, were to be the harnessing of energy and technology; interstellar pollinators who would bring species from planet to planet. Species such as the Xelaians were in charge of settling and terraforming new worlds for the west. The huge biosphere in the austral region of the galaxy was also once part of the Overmind and provided it with fuel to expand its interstellar endeavors and the boreal biosphere's mega organisms maintained the quadrillions of hive representations in synch and acted as data processors for the sheer amount of perception going in.The huge works of the Overmind connected all cardinal points of the galaxy, mobilizing and migrating huge populations for thousands of generations. Yet despite the quadrillions of organisms who had turned large parts of the galaxy into construction yards, the individual will was yet undiscovered. None of the creatures who toiled, lived and died were really individually conscious and aware of their own existence, all that was in their minds was the mission given to them by the Overmind and their psyche was merely a problem-solving mechanism to accomplish the task. The entire galaxy was in holistic equilibrium, united and without conflict under the shadow of the galaxy's singular locus of initiative. In a way, none of the denizens of this primordial state of the galaxy ever thought that they were there at all, there were no dreams or imaginative thoughts to be created and no sense of wonder to admire the vast arches and hanging gardens of the Overmind's worlds. For this period the only cognition any living thing could have was simply its connection to the overmind, beaming down specific orders and behaviors that it wished the organisms of the galaxy carry out. Humans moved earth, dug out metal ores, refined them and built starships without any direct knowledge of what they were doing, merely as puppets of the overmind whose higher qualities had already devised its technological means long ago.-2 Million Years Ago AAE: The Great Fading:But the fundamental laws of the universe, to whom even the Overmind was just a simple actor, determined at the start of the universe that the current state of affairs would not last. As the universe continued cooling down, a tension appeared in the Overmind's psion field. Small phase anomalies... first as quantum-sized nodules, then as larger filaments and then as huge domain walls appeared, splintering the psion and spreading exponentially on its hypervolume until in a few years the anomalies had completely taken over the psion and irreversibly changed its properties. The phase change was cataclysmic and destroyed much of the workings erected by the Overmind with an intense outburst of energy; all the energy that had been unstably held in the psion was now reaching a lower-energy state and as such the difference in energy manifested itself in a tremendous blast of radiation and exotic particles that snuffed out the majority of life in the early nascent galaxy.A prize, both blessing and a curse, awaited the survivors of all species from this cataclysm. They no longer felt the overmind inside their head, they felt a different entity now, one that was strange, emotionally-driven, easily-angered, somewhat fragmented and easily distracted. The few who knew these entities knew them from feverish dreams, moments of psychotic break and severe brain trauma. Individually it felt like a disjointed monolog and a cacophony of random sounds... a complete wretched being compared to the psychic presence of the overmind, many people did not bear the presence of this new mental intruder for very long and gave themselves death.Those who did not would come to recognize this presence inside of their heads as actually themselves. Long suppressed and atrophied by the overmind, the biosphere of the galaxy suddenly regained their own private consciousnesses.-1.5 Million Years Ago AAE: The Fragments:The Overmind, which had once completely controlled the daily works and actions of every organism no matter how primitive, only relented its contact with the organism during sleep, where dreams and abstract ideations resided.But after the cataclysm it was almost like the sides had been completely switched. Now the day was taken up by the conscious thought and all of its ideations, dreams and desires. Proto-consciousness was a fickle thing, especially without any system of morals attached to it, soon enough whole populations were fighting skirmishes for domination. However, in dreams it was completely different. In the deepest of dreams they could all commune with the Overmind and receive these orders. From then on the day would belong to the ego, the night to the Overmind.However; what was guiding them was tragically not the Overmind at all but remnants, echoes and anomalies of the psion field’s behavior. The “Overmind Fragments”, each one encapsulating an incomplete cross-section of the pantheistic divinity that has guided the galaxy’s sentients up until now. While the overmind was stable and holistic, the Fragments always favored a particular trait of the overmind without developing the other traits that balance it out. Fragments thus diverged rapidly in their methods and application but their goal remained the same: the resurrection of the Overmind. Due to their nature the Fragments -and the species under their control- set out to implement wildly different ways to prevent the overmind from fully fading awayNo longer guided by the unified will of the Overmind consciously the species of the galaxy are instead guided by entities known only as Fragments. These are pieces of the Overmind, different emotional complexes, psychological traits and wills of the Overmind which can no longer act together as a single being in a unified nature. Despite their fragmented nature their goal is universal in its focus: save the Overmind at all costs. But without the cohesion that was gained by a unified mind the different Fragments wish to go about the resurrection of the Overmind in totally different ways, so imbalanced in some aspects as to completely contradict other Fragments. This strange drive of being guided by a Fragment is almost like a personality disorder as the ‘Will of the Fragments’ constantly whispers in the ears of not just individuals but entire sentient species. Different species are guided by different Fragments, the Atu, Starmakers, Humans, Visone and more and all solidify around on Fragment and seek to enact its specific goal at all costs, willing to do anything to feel connected and whole again.1 Million Years Ago-AAE: The Great Works:With each species seeking to enact its own plan, a period known only as the ‘The Great Works’ numerous mega projects were undertaken, each the envy of the modern nations as the species of the ancient period worked each unified in its goal to try and enact the will of their Fragment. For the Humans they had seen that to resurrect the Overmind across the entire galaxy was a fool's errand and instead sought to resurrect it on a smaller scale from where they could then live in harmony and unity once again. As such they set up a titanic project in the modern Hyperen Satellite Galaxy, seeking to engineer the entire satellite into a mandala thousands of lightyears across, made out of constituent creations they would make it their peaceful bastion at last. For the Visone they knew the current Overmind could not be saved, but they knew they could make a successor, working with other lesser races the Visone created an artificial mandala, a prototype which would proceed to learn and grow and eventually unlock its psychic potential to grow into a new Overmind, they dubbed this artificial being Elwar and gave it to the lesser species to nurture it and have it protect them. The Atu for their plan was one of pain and revulsion, the current state was untenable and there was no way forward from it in their eyes, guided by their Fragment they sought to revert the entire Psion field to the Holy Logos and ensure that the Overmind would be reborn anew. The Starmakers see some of the most ambitious plans, to turn their Fragment and by extension their entire race into the new Overmind to ensure its continued survival. As expected from so many different plans, guided by the Fragments the different species began to get in each other's way in carrying out their projects, starting the first interstellar wars as they began to implement their projects.100,000 Years ago-AAE: The Lightmother:During this period some of the Fragments actually physically manifested through the previously crystallised Logos Fragments, and from such the Starmakers forged a sentient star, coming to eventually be called the Lightmother. However the Lightmother was unusual, having a very small fragment inside of her, this fragment was most assuredly different however from the others. This Fragment was the Overminds acceptance of its own death and the wish for things to carry on and grow on their own outside of its own shadow, as such unlike all other Fragments it knew that death was a natural part of life and it told the Lightmother to be free, to create new sentient life. With such a grand revelation the Lightmothers fragment simply said its emotional goodbye and broke its link with her entirely. Within moments the Lightmother was the first sentient being in the galaxy without a fragment. Alas with such a progressive act it did not go unnoticed by the other sentient races of the galaxy still under the will of the fragments, who saw the act as an abomination and a threat to all of their plans. The Lightmother was subsequently hunted, but in this time created her first sentient species free of the Fragments, the Serstine, and made them so fast as to outrun the very hunters chasing them.90,000 Years Ago-AAE: Council Great Wall:Some of the species within the galaxy, shaken by the events of the Lightmother as well as the Serstine and the threat of what it could lead to, banded together to try and contain the Serstine and eliminate them. This swiftly became known as Council Great Wall. Together the members of such an organisation tried to corner the Serstine and destroy them, propagating a large war between the Serstine and the Council which saw both sides take heavy losses. However the Starmakers, one of the primary backers of the Council attempted subversively to take advantage of the organisation and its hunt for the Serstine, in an effort to come out ahead with their own plan to uplift the Will of the Fragment. This in itself caused massive internal strife for the Council and led to the organisation coming apart under its own weight and numerous intercene wars between ex members. The Serstine, finally freed, survived to watch their old foes killing one another rather than hunting them.70,000 Years Ago-AAE: Last Scions and Mother’s WritThe Starmakers, now referring to themselves as the Last Scions of the Fragment, seized on one final plan to forge a suitable Overmind Fragment from the Will. A megastructure of immense size and power known as Mother’s Writ was constructed for use as an incubator, replicating conditions similar to those when the Overmind was at its strongest. In their haste to uplift their Fragment and themselves to become the new Overmind, they accidentally killed this embryonic Fragment through exposing it to standard galactic conditions of the time too early. Horrified at themselves and then without any guidance or chance of redemption they collapsed in upon themselves just in time for the third psion phase shift to occur. Though they would disappear from the galactic stage, the sheer speed with which they did it and the cleanliness of their ruins despite their obvious disarray suggests the Last Scions of the Fragment are not quite gone.50,000 Years Ago-AAE: The Third Shift:The shift came rapidly like all those before it, and in a flurry of psionic energy and backlash the remnants of the Overmind and all Fragments which still existed were shattered and died. With the shift completed the psionic poles reversed and the Psion field became the least energetic it had ever been, all civilisations based on the Will of the Fragments either died off or hunkered down in various ways to try and weather the storm. All the Fragments which had manifested through the small remnants of the Logos recrystallized, shutting off the last remnants of the Overmind and Fragment era, and ushering in a truly new age for the galaxy. During this period of chaos for the old species the First Coronan Republic subsequently split off from the Cliffside and became the Second Coronan Republic briefly before collapsing in on itself entirely. With the fall of the Second Coronan Republic the native humans of the galaxy were left scattered and isolated, swiftly regressing into primitives without purpose. In a bid to try and save themselves and their Fragment the Atu having preserved a huge piece of the Logos held onto it tightly, using it to create a strange ‘nest’ with which to reside to try and shelter themselves. This shelter would come to be known as the Tradex Nebula and while it would keep them safe and allow them to one day enact their plan the psionic torment it would force upon them would inflict on them a racial psionic nightmare unlike anything in the galaxy. The psionic pole reversal would end soon after.1000 Years ago-BME: Destruction of the Visone:With the Psion field then slightly stronger than it was during the reversal but still weaker than before the Visone awaked to a new and radically different galaxy. Having put themselves to sleep at the realisation of their destruction at the hands of the pole shift they had tried to awake at a time that would benefit their own species. Driven by the same curiosity that spurred them when their Fragment still existed the Visone sought out their long lost project, hoping that now the rest had either died out or devolved they could ensure their own plan for the Overmind would be completed. They discovered Elwar soon after, having become a guardian of the native Askandarians and carved out a small stable pocket in the galactic west. The Visone wished to truly unlock Elwars potential and use him to succeed as a new Overmind, however the actions of the naive and eager Visone were not unnoticed by the other remnants. The Atu, now having gone quite insane due to their self imposed psionic torture descended on the Visone like raging beasts scouring their worlds and destroying their influence. Spurring action from the then much devolved Third Republic of Corona who also joined in, crushing Visone worlds purely based on ancient tales and dogma and because they were eager to enact pain on others. The Visone were horrified to see Elwar himself poisoned by the Atus' own madness, and much of the Visone themselves would be destroyed, with only a handful able to hide themselves away to sleep the remaining years until their later awakening in the modern era.100 Years Ago-BME: Echoes of the Fragment:Although the Fragments are no longer sentient beings or truly alive they are still lingering on as anomalies in the modern day Psion field, this in turn gave rise to a number of minor Hive minds which have grown native to the galaxy. These new Hive minds such as Mai Mai and Metacat would be the long descendants of the Overmind and the now inheritors of the psion in the Ancerious galaxy.

Few players in the galaxy had mastered the waging of proxy war to the same extent as the Republics of Ramanunjagar and Sarabhai. Nations like Capitol and the Union of Worlds had both employed proxies as one tool among many to destroy each other, but the geography of the two Republics made their proxy war an inescapable side of their nature. Sharing over two thirds of their planets with each other, Ramanunjagar and Sarabhai's geopolitical frontline was so vast that clandestine forces had become a fact of life for them. Every social upheaval and internal tension that arose in either Republic was promptly appropriated and used as a point of pressure by the other through agitation and the funding of insurgencies; an eternal cycle of mutually-funded insurgent groups kept both republics in check, sinking too many resources in their own internal problems to gain an upper hand over the other.
Every chapter in the modern history of the two Republics had in some way been co-authored by the other and the latest one was no exception. The rise of wealth inequality and modernization had transformed the ethnic-religious insurgencies waged in both countries since decades and given them a socialist angle; from the ashes of a myriad jihadist local factions came two powerful movements that had taken the republics by storm: the Bhatarist People's War in Ramanunjagar and the Red Front-Seghalist Movement in Sarabhai.
In less than a decade these two large currents of social reform had reignited the civil conflicts of Ramanunjagar and Sarabhai across every province once thought safe from internecine war. They were modern, well-organized and well equipped movements; the product of charismatic martyrs who had only turned their guns against the local government after working over every rift that had plagued the previous generation of guerrilla movements. BPW and RFSM fought against the governments of their respective territories and became the latest avatar through which the Republics sought to undermine each other.
As the Second Ancerious War raged, both republics sought to leverage the conflict through open neutrality and hidden collaboration. Ramanunjagar's Secret Services Intelligence became spies to the higest bidder, selling information about military movements to both APP and AGA. SSI's agents and diplomats made themselves a trusted source of intelligence for the opposing militaries and only when that rapport of confidence was strong enough did they start spiking their reports with false information and begin using their soft power as a weapon. With increasing frequency, SSI's reports of military movements started pointing APP to Sarabhai territory and the targeted Republic found itself increasingly under pressure from invading fleets who sought to destroy the enemy units that were supposedly being sheltered by Sarabhai. In exchange for these intelligence reports, Ramanunjagar's war chests swelled with funds that trickled through the vast frontier and onto the coffers of the Red Front-Seghalist Movement to intensify their actions against the Sarabh government. It did not matter that RFSM was infinitely more hostile to Ramanunjagar’s ideology and people than the actual government of Sarabhai, anyone willing to do Ramanunjagar's dirty work for them would have an ample supply of diverted APP and AGA foreign aid.
The well-calculated burning of SSI's own reputation as a reliable source was executed just in time to put Sarabhai under more pressure than it could bear; Ramanunjagar's geopolitical bet ended up paying off when the Sarabhai interstellar navy began shooting down ships from both APP and AGA to enforce its own neutrality. In a few weeks, Sarabhai’s own interstellar force was devastated by attacks from both powerful coalitions and the Republic was pushed to the brink of disintegration by fierce uprisings from well-funded RFSM cells. Dozens of provinces fell as the Sarabhai government traded territory for time, entrenching its armed forces around its most industrialized areas and leaving the countryside at the mercy of the communists. Yet in this critical time, the Republic of Ramanunjagar that had once pulled the strings also began losing control of the situation.
The Raman SSI had not only lost the trust of APP and AGA’s foreign services and the funds that came with it but their excessive turn to foreign intelligence had deprived their domestic surveillance branch of their best and brightest. The violent anarchy taking place in fallen Sarabh provinces, which Ramanunjagar planned on using as springboards for military action, had instead become a no man’s land through which the Bhatarist People’s War -Ramanunjagar’s own insurgents- moved freely and secured weapons meant for RFSM. Inspired by the victories of Colonel Tamir Seghal’s fanatical followers in Sarabhai and benefitting from the breakdown in social order at the borders, the Red Front of guru Imran Bhatar intensified their attacks on Ramanunjagar’s forces.
From that moment onwards, the Republic of Ramanunjagar would gradually see its geopolitical superiority erode and Sarabhai recover from the brink. The ghosts of previous nationalistic movements had come back to haunt the once-monolithic Red Front; internal divisions exacerbated by assassinations of key leaders gradually caused racial tensions to resurface and split the Red Front along ethnic lines: a splinter group named the Red Front Seghalist Movement-Raman Nation was violently formed by the Raman ethnic minority in Sarabhai. The men and women of RFSM-RN had been just as fiercely anti-government as the main current of the movement but, in the grueling years of civil war that nearly brought about the collapse of the Sarabhai state, they began seeing their Sarabh brothers in arms with suspicion and thinking that they would be the next ones in line for annihilation. RFSM-RN demanded territorial autonomy for Ramans in Sarabhai, bringing an end to the large movement’s unity and giving the government some time to regroup as guerrillas fought each other.
By the end of AW2 Ramanunjagar’s planned land grab of hundreds of disputed territories in Sarabhai never took place, the dream of a “Greater Ramanunjagar” that united all Raman territories in one continguous landmass was shattered. Worse yet, the new government of Sarabhai was stronger than ever and had managed to renormalize relations with the AGA. Scandals and investigations wracked Ramanunjagar as AGA began finding out they had been provided false information during the war and began providing Sarabhai with foreign aid to rebuild their stellar navy.
All too eager to give their opponents a taste of their own medicine, the government of Sarabhai invested most of the foreign aid into a flood of weapons and materiel to the Bhatarist People’s War. The Republic of Sarabhai consolidated its territories and began a counter-attack that stretched for two years, taking back many of the provinces once ruled by the RFSM and putting additional pressure on the insurgent group.
The highly demoralized RFSM, which had come close to completely toppling the Sarabhai Republic at the height of the war, was a shadow of itself now that funds from Ramanunjagar dried up. The organized army-style actions and seizing of cities of years past became untenable and RFSM gradually turned once again to terrorism and massacres. As RFSM’s unifying “old guard” of commanders died or were captured, opportunists and warlords began taking their place. These local leaders mobilized the old ethnic tensions and directed the widespread resentment of RFSM’s depleted ranks against the rebels of RFSM-RN. It was because of them, they argued, that the civil war had been lost, more so than because of any government effort. If the Republic of Sarabhai was to ever fall and a new social order was to be created, the demagogues argued, RFSM-RN would have to be removed as well as the source of its supporters.
As long as Ramans lived in Sarabhai, there could be no victory.

Tanakol System: Disputed Sarabhai/Ramanunjagar Space

“Izi what do you see?”
“Ligma”
“What?”
“Ligma balls hahahaha” the other man frowned and stood up to the makeshift firing step. The ruins of the building where they set up on making a perfect ramshackle MG position.
“Go fuck yourself this isnt time for games” He grated, peering through the small vision gap between the rubble and down the barrel of the weapon they both crewed. Beyond was the blasted and broken no man's land, little more than the remains of a civilian park which denoted open ground between the two sides. Only 300 meters away was a blown out apartment block, and Aaenga knew the enemy would be staring right back at him. Izi merely smiled and stepped back.
“Chill dude, the RFSM aint gonna be moving tonight” the young man's chirpy voice angered Aaenga, he hated the boy in every conceivable way. He was everything that Aaenga disliked about the changing of the times, before it had been the old guard, the true men who had taken up arms to defend their homeland. Now it was new and young men who cared more about ancnet trends than fighting a proper conflict, half of them even sold their bodies out sometimes to let others online fight, it disgusted him. The nation of Sarabhai deserved better, as did all those who had died defending the people of the country for the past few years against the RFSM. Aaenga grunted and kept watch, he had seen plenty of engagements and he wasn't taking any chances.
The city of Bouthan was but one of the major conflict points, the whole of Tanakol was alight as were other worlds, but Tanakol was the focus. The Sarabhai Armed forces, Aaenga and Izis unit included, had rolled into the city 3 days ago. Word had spread of atrocities and mass killings of Ramans and the armed forces in their drive to rid the region of the RFSM had responded quickly to the claims. If they were true it would spell disaster for everyone involved, ethnic purging could bring the entire political stage to an explosive climax.
As such the entire situation was on a knife edge, and while the RFSM had only somewhat pulled out of the city no evidence of the genocides had been found. Yet.
“Hey old man you know we have others on watch too right?” Izi called up, opening up a can of Palm Rhyshida meat with which to heat up on the stove. Aaenga shook his head.
“I don't like taking my eyes off the enemy,” he replied. Izi sighed, before placing the can on the stove to cook.
“Gonna be hard to take a shit then aye? Come on foods up” Izi smiled. Aaenga started to turn away after a moment before looking back up. Izi raised an eyebrow.
“Whats up?”
“Movement” Aaenga, picked up the MG and used the sight, prompting Izi to looked agitated, caught between the food and a potential enemy attack. He finally made his choice, placing the tin off the stove before rushing up to take a look.
“What is it?” He asked, Aaenga didn't reply but pointed out to the left. Izi followed his eye line to a series of embankments and trench positions all dug out weeks ago by the RFSM forces, behind them was another open area which had been at one point used as a staging ground before Sarabhai snipers put an end to that. He watched as there was quite a lot of movement. RFSM insurgents, denoted by small flashes of red on their clothing, were dragging things out into the open and hoisting them up onto wooden stakes… Were they trying to make a statement?
“I can't get a clear view,” Izi remarked.
“Bastards. Those bastards” Aaenga was trembling in rage.
“What is it? What are they doing?”
“They are putting Ramans on stakes, those are civilians. They have butchered civilians…” Aaenga was livid, the claims had not only been right, but now the RFSM was doing it to show them, to make a statement. This was the natural evolution of everything the two peoples had been through, it was the end of the line and yet the beginning of a chapter far worse than Aaenga could imagine. This was ethnic cleansing.
“There will be blood for this,” Izi growled.

Nagargaon System: Ramanunjagar Capital

“32 thousand dead and that's just the numbers we have available! This is totally unacceptable, who the hell authorized RFSM to conduct these operations or undertake ethnic cleansing! Already I've got reports coming in of RFSM-RN forces slaughtering Sarabhs on their own autonomous zone! This has turned into a political and social nightmare!”
The whole of the room was quiet as Prime Minister Euphemi laid out the bad news. Only hours ago word had come in of mass killings conducted in Sarabhai territory by the Ramanunjagar backed RFSM, no order had been given, no agreements made and no plans for such a written up. In response the RFSM-RN forces in their own autonomous territory had done the same against the Ramans, leading to BPW insurgents now conducting ethnic killings of Ramans in Sarahb territories. Sarahb and Raman ethnic families were being pulled out of their homes and shot en masse to make a statement. Scenes of horror permeated this section of the anc net as atrocities were committed by all groups and had since been condemned by both governments. Still people cried out for blood on both sides while quiet orders had gone out by both governments to try and curb the atrocities committed by the two proxies which were government backed. The worst part was, the Ramanunjagar government directly bankrolled the RFSM, and that meant that all leads now pointed to them being at fault.
“Prime Minister the situation is bleak but our forces have undergone renewed atta-” The women cut him off.
“And what? The fact that this has occurred means that we have ties to mass ethnic killings, what the hell do you think the AGA will do when they hear about this? Let alone our few trade partners and even our own people! Our own fucking proxy has been killing our ethnic population, if they find out all of us are dead, quite literally.” She was standing at the large table, her cabinet rather submissively keeping quiet and not provoking her ire. She sat down and pinched her nose.
“Tell the air forces to go in there and stamp out RFSM once and for all, and I want covered military units to be inserted to support the RFSM-RN. Do you understand? Keep this as quiet and as discreet as possible, I want their leaders dragged off and I want our military commanders to be pulling the strings now from new puppets, hopefully this way we can stop the atrocities and also stop the inevitable collapse of our government and everything else. Put the fleet on standby as well and raise conditions to alert level 2. I wont tolerate any surprise strikes, we have to try to de-escalate this while we can but be ready for anything.” Her cabinet responded with nods and echoes of ‘Yes ma’am’. This was going to be a long day.

Celebranskt System: Orillian Capital

“Quite simply I believe this to be the best course of action”
“Intervening? An interesting take considering that both nations have had ties to the colonials. You wish to put our forces on the line and jeopardize the plan being put in motion?” The reply came calmly and collectively. Takar Oran merely nodded.
“I do. I feel that the actions of us using our unmanned forces to act as a peacekeeper in the Ramanunjagar and Sarabhai ethnic conflict would be a huge boon to our outward galactic image and help us undermine AGA peacekeeping authority. Given that Sarabhai is using AGA funds to funnel into the BPW in order to genocide Ramans I think this is a golden opportunity to work against them.”
The other individuals in the room murmured to themselves. They were the ruling body of Orillia, the Statist Council, made up of generals, admirals, Civil Leaders and Political powerhouses; they had been the ones to overthrow the previous regime. The room from within which they worked and conducted themselves was dark and dimly lit, but despite it being hard to see Takar knew each and every one of the faces which looked to him through the dark.
“Are we sure that Ramans own actions are what has caused this? They are far from at fault” One voice called out, Oniot one of the industrial magistrates.
“Technically Sarahbais assasinations put the cleansing radicals into power of the RFSM. In their attempt to behead the organisation they in fact wiped out the state leashed moderates and instead caused a rapid rise to power of fundementalist radicals. They are the ones responsible, also done with the AGAs own war funds. Already as we speak Ramanunjagar air forces are bombing RFSM targets in Sarabhai, it's only a matter of time before Sarabhai responds in kind and the situation escalates beyond what we can control. I need your decision and I need it now”
There was some more murmuring before one by one staves were bashed into the floor, each one denoted a vote of yes. The noises came rhythmically, those tones which were met with silence was a no vote. Takar counted 3 no votes out of 28, himself and Madam Yrillix not counted. He would keep an eye on those who voted no later, no doubt others in the council would too.
“I thank you for your vote of confidence. The 4th and 7th Rapid strike fleets supplemented by the 65th and 98th Ground Revolutionaries will be deployed for peacekeeping efforts at once.” He bowed, before striding out of the room.
This was everything he needed.
