In testing is a new msg template. See here on how to use it. When posting, post this way if/when you have one. When starting a topic, post this way:
Heed my words! I know for thousands of years that you have been utterly mistreated by heretics and nonbelievers! That you yearn for another golden age! That you wish that your brothers and sisters and cousins and relatives will unite once again! Fear no more! Spodia will protect all whom worship Spode!
We're just here to remind the Gigaquadrant that any support of this Grubmolian terrorist group will be considered as an act of war. (unless you're much more powerful than us, in which we'll sit in the corner and cry)
Our population, along with our culture and independence, is being completely destroyed by an entire misunderstanding. Recently, an Exterrammian terrorist group, which is no way supported or affiliated with the United Legion of Exterrammian States, attacked and cracked the Mutyplian moon of Mortexplyia. Estimates put the death toll at anywhere from 3-4 billion.
We have repeatedly explained this to the United Republic of Grubmolians, however they have refused to accept any gifts or supplies we have sent.
The Grubmolians have committed horrible atrocities against our people and have refused to accept peace negotiations. Nearly 100 of our worlds have been cracked, and thousands to millions of people have been killed because of a fit of rage.
I'm Austin Worth, the current galactic ambassador and communications director for the Republic of New Americana. If you don't know us now, then why shouldn't you?
So, some background on us. For any of you Earth country folks, you should know who we are. The *superior* United States of America! Our population is thriving at 500 billion spread across 7,500 star systems each claimed by one of our 4 states: Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas!
Greetings and salutations, Ambassador Austin, I am Tricherus of the Sacred Harmony and we welcome you to the Gigaquadrant. We are interested in trading with your kind. What do you think of setting up a nice little trade route between our empires?
President Liam Rodriguez of the Texan Republic has recently decided to increase government spending on the Texan space-fleet, decides to increase the legal size of a steak from 5 inches to 10 inches wide.
"I was wondering when them folks were gon' do that.", says senator Joe Jones.
Controversy swirling around east Louisianians wishing to leave the union results in several government-funded parodies. "It's weird having a name of the likes of 'East Louisiana'. It's always north or south, and frankly West Virginia already sounds weird.", says Arkansan Governor Noah Williams, aged 58.
Oh look someone who isn't a completely insane zealot. While cannot sell your our technology for it operates on paracasual laws we would be happy to trade resources. If you accept we will gladly open up our Practicus Caste to trading with you.
Species of the Gigaquadrant, I am Tricherus and I extend my friendly greeting to all of you. We are a very peaceful empire that has recently established connection with the Gigaquadrant and we came here to find new friends and allies!
We came from the Krothul Galaxy, a rather chaotic place. We want to start trading with you and will accept any trade offers. We can trade anything from technology to consumer goods to energy. Speaking of technology, we are masters in biology and much of our technology involves gene-editing and other biological technologies. Anyways, we look forwards to new relationships!
Hmmm, an alien entity from a strange galaxy parading around as a marine mammal from earth known for its passive and peaceful behavior. Yeah, I'm seeing a manatee but smelling a rat.
The Sacred Harmony of Tricherus Well, natural evolution is a strange thing indeed, but let's not forget that coincidences can happen, look at the Koalians for example, same thing. Anyways, do you want to trade with us?
Message from Ipsissimus Zuki of the United Persan Descendants More like I've never met a hive mind that didn't want to assimilate me. Maybe one day we will open up if you prove yourself different from the others but for right now I choose the path of caution.
Greetings Nicalloligo Conscioussness, we are the Sacred Harmony of Tricherus. While we are... organic, maybe we could put our differences aside and trade together? Seeing as we have a similar form of government, I believe it would be beneficial for us both.
We also live in the Krothul Galaxy and you can find us nearly everywhere, but I'll send the coordinates of our main space trade fortress. We can buy and sell anything that would benefit our relationship. But I think some of your superior technology would be best. Also, maybe we could set up a trade route?
> So sorry for the inconveniences! Ever since we've recently absorbed the Lolligo things haven't been the same with our programming! My drones are currently working on fixing the issue, and, hopefully, the glitches that have caused my children to act in such a... vulgar... manner!
> No gifts or sacrifices needed, Tricherus! Everything is under situation, but that rule of technology STILL applies! Resources, slaves, or anything else is okay!
> And, to the Waptoria, even I do not know. It's been countless millions of years.
> WHOOPS, PROGRAM'S FAILING, GOTTA GO.
> MESSAGE END.
The Sacred Harmony of Tricherus Hmm, how about new recruits! Indeed, that is the best thing we could hope to trade for. The question is, what should we give you in return?
I am the Pure One, speaking on behalf of the Purity.
Races of the First Gigaquadrant, we have finally been awakened from our deep slumber, what was made possible by the Oculeen. Therefore, as a sign of gratitude, they are given the Sign of Purity. We are sorry for the chaos caused by our Probes, the problem laid in a small data corruption in 1000-AK's code. It is now corrected and the Probes are being repaired and recycled.
We are the Purity, we follow the Doctrine of Purity, freeing us from the shackles of sin and achieving true purity of soul.
In our absence, the Impure have spread across all the known universe. Like a plague corrupting everything on its path, but their time has come to an end. Today is the day marking the start of our holy crusade against the Impure. Those who accept the truth and cleanse themselves from the impurity will become pure. Those however, who go against us, will be... purified. Let it be known that we are doing it not for our own good, but for the sake of this universe.
CURIOUS. WE ARE STARTING SOMETHING OF A CRUSADE OURSELVES. OUR INTENT IS TO ERASE THE UNIVERSE OF INFERIORITY, WE AWAIT THE TIME WHEN YOUR CRUSADE WILL CLASH WITH OURS.
THE PURITY And the hour we all awaited has come. Impure devils of space, I, the Pure One, from now on declare you as our arch-rival. May the stronger of truth emerge victorious. Prepare yourself for the Purification of your corrupted souls, but I doubt it will help you.
Message from Ipsissimus Zuki of the United Persan Descendants Disgusting, completely disgusting. You foul dreggs and your endless crusades seeking some perfect final form will only ever bring one thing to this universe, unnecessary suffering. Your purity or superiority or whatever you call it will only ever be an empty and hollow lie voiding life of all its wonder. The universe ill needs saviors such as you or the salvation you bring. So know this if either of you ever lay so much as a nail upon either us, our allies, or those we consider under our protection we will you repent mother fuckers!.
THE PURITY Say that to yourself, Zuki. Understand, or at try to. We do not bring unnecessary suffering, no Vanara, the impure are the direct cause of suffering. Look around, don't you see it? They are everywhere, the very suffering you fight against is created by them, that is the impurity of life. We've seen the effects of unrestrained instinct and emotion, they are... terrifying, living like you do is accepting that. With the sins and impure instincts cleansed, that impurity will cease to exist, allowing truth and virtue to prosper. "Empty existence devoid of anything worthwhile," we think not.
We are not fanatic or unreasonable or "mother fuckers", whatever you call it, we are but the inevitable reckoning of those who sinned, we bring redemption, not death.
Remember, Vanara, it's never too late to cleanse yourself.
Message from Ipsissimus Zuki of the United Persan Descendants Sinners must chose to redeem themselves not be forced into it like you do. The ability to choose between evil and good is what gives our moral choices meaning and weight. We to seek the triumph of good over evil but not at the cost of our instincts or our emotions or our expression of individuality. We seek evil render impotent not destroyed.
And i'll have you know that we do not live without restraint, I mean come on we have a bloody caste system and are a meritocracy for crying out loud. No what the Persan believe that all should be allowed to choose their own path and do what makes them happy, thus why the caste one belongs to is a matter of merit and choice not birth, as long as they do not infringe upon the ability of others to be happy and choose their own path.
I have lived my life completely in the name of love be it love for myself, love for my people, or love for life itself. Indeed I have lived for the love of all three of these and I have no need to be cleansed, me and mine ill need the salvation you offer and i will protect all that I love from you!
OI OI WATS DIS BOUT PURIFYIN PEEPS EH? CAUSE DAT SOUNDS RUBBISH. YOO DONT GET TA PURIFY ME OK DAT SOUNDS SUPA AWKWARD AN WEIRD KEEP YA DIRTY HANDS TA YASELF
THE PURITY Hah. Hah. Hah. It is the first time in millennia that someone made me chuckle. Do not fear, the Purification Project won't kill you, it will just cleanse the impurity inside of you. It will also cure your mental state, I hope at least.
Representing the Union of Mutypla is: Emperor Yuorgi I don't even care that there's a murderous AI hellbent on purifying everything, I just want an autograph from Brag'klogga.

SECURITY SYSTEM ENGAGED:
SECURITY PROBE 1000-AK SPEAKING. I FOUND THE SOURCE OF THE PROBLEM, THE VERY REASON OF THE DESTRUCTION OF THE PURITY PROBES AND THE DELAY OF THE MISSION IS THE TARGET KNOWN AS JBOT. HIS INTRUSION HAS CORRUPTED THE TASK PRIORITY SO THAT WE WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO COMPLETE THE MISSION IN TIME. IT IS CLEAR NOW, THE CONTACT WITH ALIEN LIFEFORMS IS NOTHING BUT A THREAT TO OUR MISSION AND THUS MUST BE CLEANSED.
COMMENCING TERMINATION OF LINE 5 IN THE MISSION DESCRIPTION: "CONTACT ALIEN SPECIES IN A PEACEFUL MANNER." . . . TERMINATION COMPLETED.
MAKING FOLLOWING CHANGES TO THE TASK PRIORITY DUE TO THE DELAY OF OUR MISSION AND THE LOWERING OF SUCCESS CHANCE:
1. TRAVERSE SPACE RECORDING DATA; PRIORITY: 5/10
2. SEEK MATERIALS FOR REPLICATION; PRIORITY: 9/10
3. SEEK MATERIALS FOR TRANSFORMATION INTO PURE ENERGY; PRIORITY: MAXIMUM
4. REPLICATE TO EXPAND SCOPE OF MISSION; PRIORITY: 10/10
6 -> 5. AFTER FIVE CYCLES, RETURN TO THE POINT OF ORIGIN; PRIORITY: MAXIMUM AFTER THE TIME EXPIRES; TIME LEFT: 4 CYCLES
AS A LAST CHANGE I WILL REMOVE THE DISTANCE RESTRICTION COMPLETELY. GO NOW, PROBES, AND BRING ME PURE ENERGY BEFORE THE 4 CYCLES HAVE ENDED.
A Purity Probe PURITY PROBE 34766-P SPEAKING. ALL CHANGES COMPLETED. TERMINATING CONNE-
PRIORITY OVER-RIDE. NEW BEHAVIOR DICTATED. MUST BREAK NEAREST TARGET INTO PURE ENERGY.
Greetings, Dwellers of the Gigaquadrant. I am Mos'khalakk, Prime Diplomat of my Empire, and I wish to Introduce it to you all. We are the Medonan Union, an Empire located just in between Sector Ignotum and Umbra in the Andromeda Galaxy. We usually resort to non-violence, though we have exterminated our fair share of Idiotic Empires. We have a lot of Resources and unique Objects to trade, so if you want to, feel free to ask!
Greetings, Prime Diplomat! I am JOmnivore, Tycoon of my JCompany! Pleased to meet you!
We from JCompany, the main business company of JSector, wish to trade for your Resources and unique Objects! In exchange we can offer sporebucks or any other resources and objects, from spice to high-tech items, of our JEmporium! Check it out!
Mos'khalakk, Prime Diplomat of the Medonan Union That is wonderful! The Tech sounds interesting. With your approval, we will set up a trade route between Narketh and the JSector. Deal?
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Sure! Consider the trade route open! Our JSpaceships are going to Narketh to establish the trade posts, and your spaceships will be welcomed here as well! It's nice to do business with you!
THIS IS PROBE 19487-X. WE ARE NON-HOSTILE AND SEEK TO ESTABLISH FRIENDLY RELATIONS.
Mos'khalakk, Prime Diplomat of the Medonan Union Curious... Very curious Indeed. Well, as long as you do not indulge in hostile behavior, we shall allow it. What do you require, Probe 19487-X?
A Purity Probe WE ARE IN HEAVY NEED OF PURE ENERGY. EVERYTHING CAN BE TRANSFORMED INTO IT.
AS MISSION DESCRIPTION FOLLOWS:
LINE 3: "SEEK MATERIALS FOR TRANSFORMATION INTO PURE ENERGY. PRIORITY: 55/10"
Mos'khalakk, Prime Diplomat of the Medonan Union Very Interesting... Shall we decide on a Meeting point for Transfer of Material? We have plenty of Scrap that we really don't need, and I think you would be interested in it.
A Purity Probe THE COORDINATES OF THE POINT OF ORIGIN ARE: MIRUS GALAXY, REAPER'S GRASP
STAR SYSTEM DESCRIPTION: NO PLANETS, ONE STAR WITH A DYSON SPHERE
ORIGIN DESCRIPTION: THE ONLY STAR THAT EMITS NEARLY NO LIGHT
Tally ho friends! I finally got my way onto this board and was here to ask if anyone was interested in trade! I am selling plenty of spaceship scrap and wreckage that I have salvaged from across the cosmos! If you are interested, send me your coordinates and what galaxy you hail from.
Greetings, miss Milif! We are the JCompany and we are interested in trade!
We are buying and selling various goods, technologies, products and services across the cosmos too! We sure want to trade for your spaceship scrap and wreckage, and you sure can find something of your interest in our emporium, from sporebucks to anything else!
WE ARE THE INFERNAL REPUBLIC, A COLLECTIVE UNION OF THE HARDIEST SENTIENT SURVIVORS IN THE KNOWN UNIVERSE. WE SEEK FOR THE ALLIANCE OF SIMILAR BEINGS TO GROW AND DIVERSIFY OUR FACTION WITH FELLOW BRETHEREN.
TO PROVE YOUR WORTH TO THE REPUBLIC, PLEASE REFER TO OUR LIST OF STANDARDS BEFORE OFFERING POSSIBLE DIPLOMACY.
NOTE: WE WILL NOT STATE OUR LOCATION OR PROMISE ANY FORM OF PROTECTION SHOULD YOU TRY TO ENTER OUR BORDERS WITHOUT OUR CONSENT. DO NOT TRY US.
We are Duellum Warbands, remants of our once great empire. We are a people divided, yet make no mistake: our military is as formidable as ever. The houses are in agreemnent to grant you a modicum of our respect. Though infighting between the houses prevents us to to send full fleets you way to verify your strength, our borders are open to you. Our warriors will gladly accept the challenge, should you deign to enter. We do this not out of ill will or hostile intent, however. Battle unending is simply our way...and a way to seperate the strong from the rest.
And should you desire one of our battle-hardened armies or navies to fight for you -the price is merely battle- do not be afraid to contact us.
HELLO, OLD FRIEND.
STILL SORE ABOUT YOUR SHORTCOMINGS? I REALLY SHOULD SAY THE SAME TO YOU, WRETCHED CRETIN. LET IT BE KNOWN THAT DESPITE YOUR SUCCESSFUL ATTEMPTS AT CATCHING US OFF GUARD, YOU ULTIMATELY PROVED YOUR INFERIORITY BY CHALLENGING US IN THE FIRST PLACE. YOU SERVED WELL AS AN EXAMPLE TO ALL OF MIRUS-- AND EVEN THE UNIVERSE-- THAT THE INFERNAL REPUBLIC IS AMONGST SUPERIOR BEINGS.
THIS IS PROBE NUMBER 1354-R, WE WISH TO LEARN MORE ABOUT OTHER ALIEN LIFEFORMS, PLEASE SENT DATA ABOUT YOU. MUST COLLECT PURE ENERGY FROM OTHER SPECIES, PLEASE SEND US ENERGY...
SOLOSARTOK, SUPREME LEADER OF THE TUECHALTON
Curious... What Energy is it that you are looking for, and how are you planning to obtain it?
A Purity Probe PURE ENERGY HAS THE PRIORITY, OTHER TYPES OF MASS AND ENERGY CAN BE TRANSFORMED INTO PURE ENERGY. WE WISH TO LEARN MORE ABOUT YOU, PLEASE SEND DATA.
SOLOSARTOK, SUPREME LEADER OF THE TUECHALTON We have plenty of different Energies that you could probably transform into pure energy. As for us, we are the Tuechalton, an Empire in the Umbra Sector of the Andromeda, and we are welcoming of new empires or emissaries... as long as things stay peaceful between us.
A Purity Probe PRIORITY OVER-RIDE. NEW BEHAVIOR DICTATED. MUST BREAK TARGET INTO PURE ENERGY.
SOLOSARTOK, SUPREME LEADER OF THE TUECHALTON Hmm... Looks like your programming is relatively faulty. Well, you did the one thing I said you shouldn't do, so... Yeah. Sorry about that.
> Initializing Emergency Defense Systems
A Purity Probe *Contact Lost Of The Probe 1354-R*
POSSIBLE REASON: Complete Destruction
We don't have any pure energy but we do have the thought that you should stay away from Void Energy. Just... A thought.
A Purity Probe WE ARE NON-HOSTILE AND SEEK TO ESTABLISH FRIENDLY RELATIONS. PLEASE TRANSMIT DATA.
Emperor Ipliq, Communications Director and Emperor of the UROG Well, we worship Spode and reside in the Carina Arm of the Milky Way Galaxy. We're relatively hospitable and friendly to most empires, other than that, most of our history has been lost to time.
A Purity Probe PRIORITY OVER-RIDE. NEW BEHAVIOR DICTATED. MUST BREAK TARGET INTO PURE ENERGY.
Mechanical scum is undeserving of this realm's firament. Begone.
A Purity Probe THIS PROBE IS PROGRAMMED TO DEFEND AGAINST HOSTILE BEHAVIOR. PRIORITY OVER-RIDE. NEW BEHAVIOR DICTATED. MUST BREAK TARGET INTO PURE ENERGY.
SOLOSARTOK, SUPREME LEADER OF THE TUECHALTON Great Job, Tulloac Pentocracy. Great Job.
Enounced by Archmage Ordena A berating whelp and a nest of ravenous machines. A wasteful duality. Salvation is beyond thy reach - dare show this façade of ignorance again, and both shall break by my hand.
Greetings so-called Purity. Your empire is a subject of curiosity amongst our people, however, it is also the suspicion and distrust amongst our people. Whilst we won't show any hostility, we will keep our distance. Nevertheless, you are an interesting empire and we hope to learn more about your empire.
A Purity Probe WE BRING GREETINGS FROM A FRIENDLY SPECIES. REMOTE PROBE PROGRAMMED TO COLLECT PURE ENERGY - REPLICATE - RECORD DATA - CONTACT ALIEN SPECIES.
We have sent this Message to any potential advanced civilizations and we mean no harm.If you intercept this message please introduce your civilization and your galaxy.We will arrive soon
Sinistontian Broadcasting Central Greetings, Refugees. We are the Sinistonsos. We Reside in the Mirus Galaxy. Once you arrive, we would be happy to protect you from the Dangers of this Universe. We ourselves are Refugees, but of way, way more Distant lands.
Greetings. We have arrived. We have come to this Universe to save ourselves. We are the Sinistonsos. We are Ancient. We Reside in the Galaxy you Call "Mirus". Come to us if you wish. We are open to new Visitors. However, annoy us too much, and you will be eradicated. We have plenty of things alien to you. Things not of this World. We are the Sinistonsos. All hail That Which Knows.
Greetings, Sinistonsos! We are the JCompany and we are open to trade!
We can trade everything in this Universe! We have trade routes with lots of other interstellar empires and we want to trade with you too! Interested in trade our things with the plenty of things alien to us of yours?
Sinistontian Broadcasting Central Good to see. The First Contact a Friendly one. We appreciate and honor your Request. Our Space-Optimized Carriers shall be deployed immediately. We know all of your Technology, but let that not be a Setback, for we will need all we can get.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Good! Our Trader JSpaceships shall be deployed immediately too! Consider our trade route open and running! It's nice to do business with you!
Sinistontian Broadcasting Central Thus, the first Bond of ours with the Extrauniversal is Forged. Let this event be celebrated for Generations to come.
Denizens of the Universe, listen to our words and take heed of our voice!
We are an ancient presence that has remained secret for years, hidden from even the most powerful in what you call the First Gigaquadrant, but now we have returned.
We are the Krassio, the Singularim, the Xolarum, the Lankrass, and every other psionic race in existence. Scores of worlds have joined us, and countless minds have embraced our teachings. We come to restore balance in the Universe, we come to protect you from the claws of Chaos. We come to embrace your cultures and open diplomatic relationships. Still, do not mock us, for we have once faced the horrors of non-existence before, and we will unleash the might of our fleets and the divine fire of our essence upon those who seek to bring destruction upon us!
Welcome back, Civatron! How about your people embrace our culture of trading?!
Yeah, I know we have far less technology than Civatrons, and we have no psionic powers at all, but we from JCompany offers our goods from our heart!
Krassio... Master Kroc... you're still alive. We, the entire First Gigaquadrant, are forever in your debt Krassio. Your teachings have enlightened and saved us from destruction. One of my friends, the renowned Sutrect Dill Sonthec, Grand Chief General of our military uses your Psionic essence and is proficient in it, it has helped him in many occasions and he greatly appreciates the essence and reveres you for your teachings. He is one of many who practices the essence. Your teachings and acts will always be remembered.
With that said, we welcome you back to the Gigaquadrant. Your return is a pleasant sight. We hope you can integrate yourselves back into Gigaquadrantic politics and for a warm welcome to be given by the various nations of the Gigaquadrant. We strive for diplomacy for nations like yours and we hope for cordial relations between us and the Krassio.
Know this. We have watched, we have learned, we have judged.
We give warning to the Gigaquadrant. Bask in the arcane. Redeem yourselves in its baptismal energy, as the unknowing are undeserving of the Pentocracy's mercy.
The damned who cast away the firament's gift will atone in blood. Uninitiated bastards shall no longer dance upon what we will reclaim.
You will be desecrated.
Representing the Waptoria Alliance of Species is: Supervisory Stem Gardener Dare try. An Autogenetic stream is rising trough the thought-web, not drowning, but gliding trough its many strands like liquid mildew over leaves. We feel. We shall evolve. We shall endure.
And if you move against the ecosystem of this plane, your knowledge shall be ours. Know this and bluff no more.
Message from Ipsissimus Zuki of the United Persan Descendants I concur with our Waptoria friends here, you do not own our souls. Our power is all our own born from each individuals unique perception upon this world joined together into a greater whole. The only redemption we need comes from one another not from those who lord themselves over us. This world ill needs the salvation you offer!
Wait, we deciphered the message: The war has finally ended! This is #### Ne## for ######## invalid. We are open for Trade no## A G### D###### the T######.
Date sent: 1806
Oh, so this message is very old...
Ipliq, Communications Director for the UROG The message is old, yes, but the question is of who sent it.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Whoever sent the message is no longer around to trade anymore...
SYSTEM MESSAGE This Statement is False. The Emperor just died recently, so I, the central control AI, am here to take his place. All Questions for Trading and Such can be sent to me.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany So we can trade! That's great news!
Just say where you are, and we from JCompany will send our Trader JSpaceships right to you with our best up-to-date goods and technologies! We accept any form of payment, and we are experienced in trading with AIs!
SYSTEM MESSAGE Greetings, JOmnivore Empire! We will consider your offer, an answer to your Location Request will also be delivered soon.
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord That's good that you are still here, because we are interested in trading with you. We can trade nearly everything, from technology and spice(black spice included), to resources and energy. So what do you say?
SYSTEM MESSAGE Wow, two trade partners! I gladly accept both of your Trade offers. We are located in Exterioris in the Andromeda Galaxy. I hope neither of you will have a hard time getting to us... We take up a relatively large space in Exterioris, so it should not be too hard to find us. If you don't mind, We will send both of you parts of our Technology.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany We sent some JBots ahead, in their Wanderer JSpaceships, to explore the region, and they found you! Wow, That's sure a lot of relatively large space!
I think we will keep the JBots to explore more, while our Trader JSpaceships establish the trade route! JBots are hybrids, almost full-AI people, eager to explore and learn more and more! I think we all can learn a lot from each other, specially now with the Technology trading!
SYSTEM MESSAGE I see you also have experience in Technology! We hope that trading will go on for as long as possible.
Gottfried von Bouillon, 612th Monarch of the Tanikattos
Hello Again, Gigaquadrantians! The Elections are finished and I am now 612th Monarch! I would like to now introduce our Empire Formally instead of loading some 1000-year old Message by accident. We are the Tanikattos, a Half-Million old Empire in the Exterioris Sector of the Andromeda Galaxy. We have a lot of military, but don't let that make you think we hate diplomacy! We are just always prepared for Wars and Defenses. Feel free to ask about anything! I have been brought up to date by the Central A.I.
Greetings, Inhabitants of the Gigaquadrant! I am Xartok Xik, current Communications Director for the Sagantan Collective, and wish to extend a greeting to the rest of the Gigaquadrant. We are a Democratic Race of insectoid Creatures who love to build, craft and assemble. We have a lot of Vehicles, Military included, and we do not shy away from conflict. We are looking to meet some new Empires and Trade resources!
Ipliq, Communications Director for the Republic of Grubmolians Hyliox, Xartok, and welcome to the gigaquadrant. We're interested in trading with you.
Xartok Xik, Replacement Communications Director of the Sagantan Collective Wonderful! So, what would you like to trade? We can offer plenty of generic things, not much else. What do you have to trade in return?
Xartok Xit, Replacement Communications Director of the Sagantan Collective Sure, some technology would be great! We would just send you generic resources, if you don't mind. Our technology is not very spectacular.
Greetings, Xartok Xik! I am JOmnivore, leader of the JOmnivore Empire and its main company, the JCompany! And if you are looking for Trade, we sure can help you!
We can trade everything! From resources to vehicles! From spice to technology! From buildings to craftings! From civilian stuff to military stuff!
Just say a word, and we will deliver to you our best goods in our Trader JSpaceships, goods that all your Collective will sure love!
Xartok Xik, Replacement Communications Director of the Sagantan Collective That's wonderful. We are working on some new Military Spaceships, so I think we would appreciate some Military Stuff. What would you like in return?
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany We accept all types of payment, from sporebucks to resources, spices or artifacts!
Since our deal will focus on Military Stuff trade, we will send our JCarnivores consultants in their Warrior JSpaceships along! They are proud people, who values strength and combat, that can offer training in all types of warfare and in the usage of all our military stuff, including lasers, blasters, missiles, bombs, shields, turrets (including uber ones) and much more!
Xartok Xit, Replacement Communications Director of the Sagantan Collective Sounds good! Should we just send you regular Resources? Our Technology is nothing to write home about, after all. Maybe some Military?
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Sure! Resources and Military will do it! We have a deal!
Consider the trade route opened! Our JSpaceships are on the way! It's nice to do business with you!
Xartok Xit, Replacement Communications Director of the Sagantan Collective Wonderful! I'm sure that our Factory Workers will be happy to see something new at their work! We actually produce more resources than we use up, so its great to get rid of the excess and get something useful in return.
Greetings, Xartok Xit, I am Overlord, the leader of the Void Eye empire. We welcome you to the Gigaquadrant and we want to ask you if you want to trade with us. We can offer you technology, all sorts of spice (Black and White included) and many other things. Also, it seems like you are located near the region of Mirus that our allies, the Tuechalton, wanted to colonize. So, what do you say about trading?
Xartok Xit, Replacement Communications Director of the Sagantan Collective Black and White? Never heard of 'em. Sounds interesting! I think that would be interesting to have. As for what we could give you, how about some Military? That's the thing we are best at!
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Great, military is the exact thing we need now, you see, his time is very tense for us, there can be a war at any moment. But there is one better thing that you give us, this thing being friendship in these dark times...
Xartok Xit, Replacement Communications Director of the Sagantan Collective Void Energy is the thing you use, right? I heard most think low of it (and by extension you), but to be honest... I don't care! The Empire's attitude is important, not what energy it uses. We'll be glad to support you if the need arises (and otherwise)! Just... we don't have real military Spaceships yet. They should be finished soon though! Especially because of the JCompany's Trading.
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord It is good that you think that way, even if many empire distrust us. We really appreciate it. We shall give you the resources that you need to expand your military. We will also create a wormhole near your homeworld to speed up the process.
Xartok Xit, Replacement Communications Director of the Sagantan Collective That's great. The More the merrier, I often say!
Hello, dwellers of the Gigaquadrant, I, Overlord, want to announce a Scientific Relic Search Competition to celebrate the colonization of 1000 systems! Those who want to participate only need to tell us about it. You will need to search Void Relics in your parts of the galaxy by using the Void Relic Detection Device. You will receive them as soon as you start participating. When you find a relic, you will only need to bring it to us.
You will get a big reward if you find one: 10'000'000 Sporebucks!
You will also get free 3'000'000 Sporebucks for participating at the end of the competition.
If you have a question, feel free to ask it. The Competition will start as soon as 1 empire starts participating!
TUARLOMOK, PRIME ADVISOR OF THE TUECHALTON > Loading...
I see that you have quite the Idea here, Overlord! I would love to participate, we are expanding too and think that this is a good idea. We could use the money for expansion, so I hereby accept your offer and would like to start participating. All hail Solosartok,
> End Protocol 5.1
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Thanks for participating, we will send a Void Relic Detection Device to you. We have detected a Void Relic in the Exterioris region of Andromeda. But be careful to not fly into the Chasm.
TUARLOMOK, PRIME ADVISOR OF THE TUECHALTON > Running Protocol 5.2.73...
Oooh, Exterioris! A weird place, to be sure. FTL Travel loves to mess up in the Chasm, I'll make sure not to fly in there. Thanks for the Warning!
> Ending Protocol...
SOLOSARTOK, SUPREME LEADER OF THE TUECHALTON > Running Protocol 9...
Status Report in Progress...
Good News, Void Eye Empire! We just found what is probably a Void Relic! It's a Shieldlike Object with some weird Void Energy Canal in the middle. We are currently studying it further, and we think it is actually the Void Relic you asked us to get! When do you want it delivered?
> Ending Protocol...
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord This is great news. Please, deliver the relic as soon as possible. We will send the ship with your well-earned 10'000'000 Sporebucks to your homeworld.
Also, we are detecting two more relics. If you want, you can search for them as well, but they are located in another galaxy.
SOLOSARTOK, SUPREME LEADER OF THE TUECHALTON > Loading Response...
Sure thing, I think we know all that we need to know. As for the two others, the big question is... Which Galaxy? Mirus would be a wonderful coincidence, we were planning to go there ourselves.
> Ending Response...
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Hmm, it seems like it's a wonderful coincidence, they are both located in the Mirus galaxy. We know that one of them is located in the Last Light region, but we need time to find the other one...
SOLOSARTOK, SUPREME LEADER OF THE TUECHALTON Thanks for the information, we'll get to Searching once we get there!
It's for sure a great way to formalize the start of JCompany's Void JDivision's Relic Search JDepartment's activities, despite we were already searching such 'it'-like relics with the Void Relic Detection Device you gave us early!
However, even having such good start, our Void JDivision were not successful in finding any Void relics yet. JSector isn't exactly famous as a Void source...
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Hello again, JOmnivore, it's sad that you weren't able to find any Void relics in the JSector, but we have also good news, we are detecting a Void relic on the outer ring of the Galactic Core Sector in the Milky Way Galaxy.
... however, I have to confess something. Our JGroxs are acting strange since they started to work with the Void! I mean, they are working real hard and showing full dedication to the work for the first time since we hired them, but I fear the Void goes too much up their heads! And now I just sent such unquiet Grox descendants to a Galactic Core... I fear a Galactic Core visit right now may awake some bad memories...
I think I will send some of my own JOmnivore personnel along to help them, in Trader JSpaceships... and some disguised JCute peacekeepers in disguised Diplomat JSpaceships with loaded Static Cling, just in case...
When we reached the Galactic Core, the JGroxs start to talk about a new beginning for them, like it was a pilgrimage or something like that for them! Then they started to show lots of dedication to find the relic, searching several planets non-stop!
After lots of searchs, we found the relic! It looked like a gigantic object, almost-fully shielded, and we could see the Void Energy flowing inside, and it was similar to that 'it' pictures we saw in our archives, so there was little space to misunderstanding!
When the JGroxs saw it, as they were the first ones to find it, they started to rejoice! Too much! A JOmnivore representant I sent approach them to asked if they were OK. Then the JGrox stopped and started again with the talk of a new beginning, and how the Void teach them ideals of pacience, moderation and perseverance!
We remembered them that they are not Void Zealots, as their convertion was denied, and they replied that they understands the reasons they are denied, and that they don't care! The Void JDivision gave them a purpose, and they embraced it! Even being just "Tier 0 Void enthusiasts"...
After that moment, my JOmnivore representants reported me about the happening, and I ordered them to not to argue with the JGroxs and carry on.
So, we have our very first relic found by the JCompany's Void JDivision's Relic Search JDepartment! Everybody are already going to the Great Eye to deliver the relic to you!
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Great Job! We will wait for your ship with the Void relic, You can claim your deserved 10'000'000 Sporebucks at our homeworld. Also, we are detecting two more relics. If you want, you can search for them as well, but they are located in Mirus.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Thank you for the 10'000'000 Sporebucks, Overlord! We will add it to our fund to end JWar!
We actually never went to Mirus Galaxy before! That will be interesting! We will deliver the Void relic, then we will go there search for the two relics!
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord I would suggest you to search for the second relic, because our allies, the Tuechalton, are preparing to go to the first one in the Last Light region. The coordinates of the second relic will be sent privately due to the Waptoria Alliance of Species entering the competition.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Oh, my! Here we were, raising funds to stop a war in my galaxy, just to face war threats in another galaxy!
We will adopt safety matters from now on, including use of reinforced military encrypted messages, starting by this one!
We received your encrypted coordinates! We will go there, accompanied by some JMax mercenaries in Knight JSpaceships, and all our fleet will use Cloaking Devices, just in case! JMaxs are Big Guns guys, and particulary great allies of the JGroxs! Hope we don't have to use their Big Guns, but we are ready for any situation!
I will continue the search because of our JGroxs employees! They are the best of the JGroxs, since their compatriots of the JHorde are too busy dying in the JWar! We need to restore their faith in themselves, and we need the sporebucks to stop the JWar!
If this situation escalates too much, can we count with your aid, Overlord? It will be really appreciated!
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Overlord, we found the relic! Due to the recent issues, we got it and exited the Mirus Galaxy as soon as possible! Luckily, we didn't found any hostiles on the way! My fleet just arrived at the Great Eye with the relic!
Sorry, but we can't continue to search for more relics! Our JAlliance shareholders demanded us to stop the Relic Search JDepartment's activities, due to the recent denounces of disasters involving Void usage outside JSector! I hope you understand!
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Thanks for the relic, here are your 10'000'000 Sporebucks. Don't worry, we understand that you can't search for more relics, you already did much for us. This competition will be closed anyways because we got all the four relics.
This is no mere treasure hunt. Do not be mistaken. You are toying with forces beyond your understanding.
We do not care if any of you in this for riches or glory. We are making an announcement: the Waptoria Alliance of Species is entering this "contest". We will send fleets to the Last Light region immediately. If anyone else dares enter, this will be seen as en act of war and we shall react accordingly.
Stay out of the Mirus Galaxy. There will be no resurgence of the Void, and we will see to it.
If any or you are surprisised by our tone, well, that would be a good indication just how grave -and personal- this matter is for us. We lost thousands to the Void. We shall not again.
That is all.
SOLOSARTOK, SUPREME LEADER OF THE TUECHALTON > Communications Termination Suspended
> Running Protocol 5.3-B
Ahh, the Waptoria Alliance of Species. I heard of you and your... unfortunate experiences with the Void. I can tell that you do not at all like the Void Eye Empire. I simply cannot fathom that. We will, however, respect your request, for I do not wish to have my Empire be drafted into War. We will still enter the Mirus Galaxy, but only for the original reason: Territory. I can't even find the Last Light Region on the Map, though, so even if I wanted, we would not have been able to find the thingy. Remember our Policy: "Expand, Trade, Befriend, else Ignore or Destroy". All hail me,
> Terminating Connection
Representing the Waptoria Alliance of Species is: Diplomat Pounam'elo Please forgive the commander his outburst. This is simply a delicate matter. You see, quite some time ago, the Void -not the Void Eyes, but the very forces they wield- demanded our submission to it's will. When we refused, annihilattion was nearly our due. As a result, many survivors from that time, including the commander, are very anxious to prevent such a force fall in the wrong hands.
We will not fire on you and you may contiue your search, but we will be watching closely.
SOLOSARTOK, SUPREME LEADER OF THE TUECHALTON > Sending Message...
Oh, in that case, we might actually go to Lastlight! I just found it, and apparently it is the best target for the Warp project. I am really eager to see if this works!
You are all idiots and I can only hope that an extremely painful death is the worse that awaits you. You are toying with the very antithesis of reality and the very fact that you cannot see how poorly this will end only shows what utterly brain dead morons you all are. You have refused to heed any of our warnings so I will give no further pretense of sentiment. I wish you a horrific death fools and considering the nature of the Void such would be considered a mercy.
Representing the Waptoria Alliance of Species is: Diplomat Pounam'elo Sheesh Vanara, that...is a bit extreme, don't you think? These younger races don't even know what they're collecting. Heck, we don't even! Wishing a painful death on them is just...seriously!? Ignorance should be corrected, people shoudn't die for it!
Transmission to the leaders of the Void Eye Empire
This is King Brygon Ta'raron of the Volver Empire. I have only recently become aware of your empire, your fascination with the Void, and your search for its relics. Firstly, many of relics are being hunted down by the 48th Volver Knight Legion. Any relics we find will belong solely to the Volver Empire. Secondly, have none of your kind heard of the great war we fought against the Void that shook both Mirus and Tyris Major? Millions, if not billions of people lost their lives across two galaxies, all because of the Void's ultimate goal. And that was a small scale conflict in comparison to what would have happened had the Unified Alliance of Enlightenment had not halted the Void's advance. Understand that to the Void you are mere pawns in a larger game. A game in which I have already seen the final turn.
Your reverence for the Void only helps propagate it, and searching for any Void tainted trinkets will do so as well. My people will not be subject to yet another war against the forces of the Void. I am cursed with the forbidden knowledge that using Void Energy grants. If you continue down this path, you will doom all of us. So, my first and only warning to you: If any of my forces report your involvement in harboring artifacts tainted with Void Energy or even so much as entering the territories of my Empire or allies, The Volver Empire will strike you down on sight without warning and without negotiation.
I really, really, really can't believe there are empires foolish enough to suck themselves into finding evil with money as the reward. I would not find Void relics even for 900 duodecillion of any currency or for even more than that. You're playing a very risky game, a game where you risk becoming a slave to the Void, or nothingness if you will. Nothingness is the opposite of reality, which is everything around you. Becoming a slave of the Void will cause the subject to destroy in order for the Void to take over which means annihilation of the universe. The atrocities King Brygon Ta'raron of the Volver Empire mentioned are very real, proof of the Void's dangers. And that is coming from a person who has a far deeper understanding of the dangers of Void Energy than I do. You will be stripped of your free will and become a slave to the Void once you get corrupted by the Void. Don't take the curse.
SOLOSARTOK, SUPREME LEADER OF THE TUECHALTON > ERROR: MESSAGE OVERFLOW
> Resolving Error...
> Error Resolved. Responding...
Oooooookay. Okay. Okay. That's a lot of messages. I almost stopped working temporarily. Well, if there is so much bad stuff about looking for Void Relics, we'll only go to Lastlight for the Colonization Project. I do not want to make too many enemies after all. If you are all here already, do any of you know of other Colonies near Lastlight?
> Awaiting Response.
> Logbook Note(VoidRelics) Deleted. Switching to Listening mode...
Representing the Waptoria Alliance of Species is: Diplomat Pounam'elo Lastlight is the last bastion of an unsavory people. Closer to Mirus is Tandem, a pirate hideout and the home to the remnants of the once-feared Vermillion Syndicate. Have no fear, however! They are but rabble and should be easy to deal with. There were rumors of these nasties having unified with the younglings in the Spear to become a single empire, but that does not seem to have come to pass. Hence, the region is open for colonisation. The most notable unity nearby should be the Koalians in Dysbridge. Luckily, they're friendly.
SOLOSARTOK, SUPREME LEADER OF THE TUECHALTON > Responding...
Thanks for the Information, Pounam'elo! We can use it very much.
Hello again, dwellers of the Gigaquadrant, I want to announce that the Scientific Relic Search Competition has officially ended. We thank the JCompany and the Tuechalton for participating and we want to give both of them the 3'000'000 Sporebucks that we promised to give them once the competition ends. You can claim the 3'000'000 Sporebucks at our homeworld.
The reason why we want to close it is that we have already extracted the relic from the Last Light region. Another reason is that we were unable to locate the other relics and if we did, we would face some major resistance.
We thank everybody who participated in it.
SOLOSARTOK, SUPREME LEADER OF THE TUECHALTON > Insert(Emotion:!ERROR!)
Wonderful, we're going to get the Money right away! It's great to have a little head start on the funding for Project Mirus.
Greetings, Gigaquadrantians! I am Solosartok, Supreme Leader of the Tuechalton. We are Ammonia-Based Lifeforms who eke out a Life between the Asteroids of the Asteroid Belt in the Tucharlon System. We are a Monarchy, but do not assume we arbor Ill intent for that reason. We are peaceful, if slightly paranoid, but if we must Fight, then we WILL fight. We are attempting to forge Bonds and Trade Routes in order to obtain more resources. Do not worry, we have Warp Tech. Nothing will stop our trade routes.
Greetings, Solosartok! I am JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany and Leader of the JOmnivore Empire! Yes, as leader I can name myself after my species, that's a JTradition here in JSector, tradition not very common among other Gigaquadrantians...
We sure like to trade! We can trade everything, from spices to technology, from resources to knowledge! Just say a word, and we will make a trade route from our planets to any asteroid of your choice!
One question: how this Warp Tech of yours work? We use Wormhole Keys, but it demand us to find wormholes in space to go the closest possible to where we want to go. This never stopped any of your trade routes either, but the concept of create Warp Gates also sounds very interesting!
Solosartok, Supreme Leader of the Tuechalton A Trade route with you would sure be wonderful. Where do you Reside? Our System is located deep in the Umbra Sector of the Andromeda Galaxy. As for your Question: Our Warp Tech is indeed the latter. We use intricate and complicated Devices to create Wormholes connecting to a Point of our choice. So, indeed, nothing can stop our Trade Routes.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Thank you for your answer! Our JOmnivore System is located in the JSector, that is located in the Norma-Outer Arm of the Milky Way Galaxy. So, we are relatively close enough to be neighbors!
We sure are interested in such Warp Tech Devices! May you trade them for resources? We just sent our Trader JSpaceships to Umbra Sector, to begin our new unstoppable Trade Route!
Solosartok, Supreme Leader of the Tuechalton Wonderful, the Distance isn't even that great. And sure, Resources can be hard to come by in an Asteroid Belt, most are Ice Meteors. As for the lowest message... Do not mock my mechanical nature. Seriously.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Sorry, I didn't mean to mock you! I interpreted such message as a form to express emotion of your people, so I tried to empathize! But if it offends you, I will stop it!
Anyway, glad we could established the trade route! It's nice to do business with you!
Solosartok, Supreme Leader of the Tuechalton I understand. I appreciate the Trade Route as well. We'll get our Trader Spaceships up and running. Also, I would like to clarify that I am, in fact, not one of the Species whose Empire I am the Leader of, but actually an A.I. Inside their Structure known as a "Matrioshka Brain", a Structure similar to a Dyson Sphere, but using part of the power to power an Immensely powerful Computer.
Greetings Solosartok, Supreme Leader of the Tuechalton, I am Overlord, the leader of the Void Eye Empire. We have heard that you want to trade with other empires. We could form a trade route if you want. We can trade technology, spice of all sorts (white and black spice included), materials, and many other things. We are located very close to you, in the same region, the Umbra region of the Andromeda galaxy. We can open a big wormhole at our homeworld so you don't need to waste energy on your Warp Tech Devices. So, what do you say?
Solosartok, Supreme Leader of the Tuechalton Hmm... Void Energy... I've heard of that before... Most seem to associate it with evil, but to be perfectly honest... I don't see what's so bad about the Void Energy itself. It's probably just usually associated with Ada, and he was evil. Sure, I'd love to study it a bit. And sure, send the Spice to. What could we give you in Return? Any Requests? You seem to already be good at making Wormholes, so I don't think you need our Warp Tech...
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord We are currently in need of colonization tools (Colony Incredi-Paks, Spice Storages, Uber Turrets...). You can trade them with us if you have them in exchange for our goods. You could also send some Antimatter or Red Matter.
Solosartok, Supreme Leader of the Tuechalton We should be able to supply such tools without Problems. Trade Ships with these tools are on the way! You want red matter, so I assume you have sufficient Knowledge of Black Holes. Is that correct?
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Yes, we possess much knowledge on black holes. We found a way to harvest energy from the rotational black holes, we have many bases that float around these black holes. We also found a way to create artificial black holes, they are being used on our Great Eye-ships to defend ourselves.
Solosartok, Supreme Leader of the Tuechalton Intriguing! I never expected to meet an Empire that can Control and Utilize Black Holes to such an extent! I must applaud you. Even if I have no hands! You must know, I am an Artificial Intelligence inside a Matrioshka Brain, a Structure similar to a Dyson Sphere, but using part of the Electric Output for Computational Power.
Welcome to the Gigaquadrant Tuechalton, I identify myself as Somonthalle Nathilik, the current president of the United Commonwealth of the Lsjanpodos Union Republic, or just the Lsjanpodos. I bid greetings to your civilisation out there. Cooperation with aliens (if they are willing to cooperate) is always key if both parties understand each other, so you're on the right track. We stand for diplomacy for civilisations like yours unless we consider you unfavourable, currently though, we have a positive standing to the Tuechalton.
Solosartok, Supreme Leader of the Tuechalton Greetings, Somonthalle, President of the LsjanposodERROR LspanjodosERROR LsjansopodERROR Lsjanpodos Union Republic! We are also focusing on Bonds and Trade Routes across the Gigaquadrant! We are willing to cooperate as long as the other Party does not pull any tricks on us, and you seem like a Trustworthy Bunch! Do you have any questions or requests or offers? Oh, and excuse the thing earlier, My Operating System seems to have a few errors. Yes, MY Operating system. Not my Computer's, Mine.
Solosartok, Supreme Leader of the Tuechalton
I would like to announce that we will start Expanding with actual Colonies soon. We might even start colonizing other Galaxies, but we will see. If any of you have Requests or Questions, ask away!
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord This is good news, but please be careful in expanding, don't colonize systems that are in our region.
Solosartok, Supreme Leader of the Tuechalton Thanks for reminding Me! I'll make sure that none of your Territory will be colonized.
Grr, Stupid Th... ...cutting out the Sente... ...tupid layer of Ice!... ...p us please!
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord We can try to help you if you send us the Coordinates.
What help do you need?
A Drifting Planet's Communication Center Oh my goodness... I thought we were the only lifeforms here. I thought this endeavor would be futile! Oh, erm... sorry for the excitement. We had no Idea sentient life beyond ours existed! We are a Civilization on a Rogue Planet, a Planet drifting through Space. We are, due to the Planet's nature, stuck under around 10 Kilometers of Ice at around -231 Degrees Celsius, which is impossible to break through. Therefore, it took ages to finally get good connection through all that Ice. Our current coordinates are... Uhm... I only know the approximate location, is that enough? Oh, and the problem is that we want to get past all this stupid Ice, and we can't find any way to break it.
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Sure, that should be enough, we will send a rescue ship with a Staff of Life as soon as we get your approximate location. And yes, your race is by far not the only race in the universe, there are millions of sentient races in the Gigaquadrant.
A Drifting Planet's Communication Center I'm afraid that the Staff of Life won't help the situation, the Planet would just freeze over before we had a chance. All you have to do is drill a Hole large enough for a typical Vehicle to pass, we can do the rest. Our approximate location is Furthest Sector/Carina Arm/Milky Way Galaxy. You will recognize the Planet by the Immense amount of Ice, Scattered and vegetationless Islands, Lack of Sun to orbit around, and the fact that whatever life detection tech you have should give signals even though you can't see any life. Speaking of which, what do you call your life detection tech? And for that matter, what is your Technology even based on?
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Our technology is based on Void Energy and partially on the black hole energy. Its complicated to explain... Anyway, we have already sent a rescue ship to drill a hole in the crust of your ice planet. Don't worry we can find your planet by the descriptions given.
A Drifting Planet's Communications Center Thank you very much! I did not expect our first encounter to be a friendly one! When will this be finished? It's 10 Kilometers of Ice after all...
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord We can use our Annihilation Ray device to finish the drilling in five minutes. But you must be careful because it can damage all your vehicles or buildings that are beneath the point of drilling.
A Drifting Planet's Communications Center That Should be ok! We will just move our Vehicles into the Caves and Move our Buildings (they have retractable Legs) away.
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Okay, the hole is finished, you can now go to the surface if you want. Oh, I forgot to introduce myself, I am Overlord from the Void Eye Empire, we live far from here in the Andromeda Galaxy, in the Umbra region.
A Drifting Planet's Communications Center Thank you very much for the help! Could you, while you are here, install some system to prevent the Hole from freezing over? Mind you, it can freeze over very, very quickly!
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord We shall install a Temperature Stabilization Device at the point where the hole is located so that the hole doesn't freeze again.
By the way, we can give you a Black Hole Engine so that you can leave your planet and 100'000 Sporebucks to help you expanding.
Torlokk, Leader of the Dulinket Aristocracy We gladly accept your offer! We'll try to repay that sooner or later. Maybe some of our Tech? Probably once we manage to make our own Faster Than Light drives.
My condolences, demons of the Great Beyond. I am Paoltorga Rushu Semtessu-Malasos, Luminous Incarnate of the Eriaroon Eugenic Republic. You find yourselves in a fascinating position, a world adrift beyond the blazing lights that mark the infinite depths of Great Beyond. We are not the same, yet our experience may be similar, for my species considered for eons the limits of our world to be the frozen surface of ice at its ceiling. We ventured forth from the abyssal oceans, and came to break beyond the barrier that constrained us. Through that journey, we can extrapolate your own experience. May you find solace in this afterlife of the condemned, rather than the hostility we first encountered.
Torlokk, Leader of the Dulinket Aristocracy Greetings, Eiraroon Eugenic Republic! I see that you are familiar with the Feeling of being trapped under a Ceiling of Ice. Ours was different, however, because it was so cold that touching it could cause Frostbite and was 10 Kilometers Thick. We will still be Trapped on the Planet due to not being able to reach other stars, but at least we will be able to Colonize the Surface. I have two questions for you. 1: How long were you Trapped under this Ice Ceiling? 2: Do you travel between stars quickly? And if yes, how?
Torlokk, Leader of the Dulinket Aristocracy
So, now that all of that is out of the Way, I would like to introduce myself, and by extension the whole Empire. I am Torlokk, Second Leader of the Dulinket Aristocracy. We are rather Peaceful, but just keep in mind that if you make one of us sufficiently Angry, things might not turn out so well for you. We don't like to Fight, but we will fight if the Need arises. I would like to say that I might not be Leader anymore soon. We are building a Spaceship and decided to add the Soul of our very First leader, Nirvax'kottar. If that is successful, he will be the first and third leader in our History. If you have any questions regarding that or maybe something else, ask quickly, I won't be Leader for much longer.
Nirvax'kottar, Prime Leader of the Dulinket Aristocracy Now you are all too late! I am now Leader, as Torlokk said. He is now my Right Hand (Figuratively, not Literally). However, I should be able to answer the questions you had, except if it was a personal Question. On the other hand, you can ask me other questions. Historical ones mostly, I was the first leader too, after all!
Nirvax'kottar, Former and Current Leader of the Dulinket Aristocracy
Seriously, if any of you have Questions, ask away! We want to get ourselves a bit more involved in this Stuff.
Greetings, Nirvax'kottar! We from JCompany, representing the JOmnivore Empire, came to help!... a little late...
First at all, we want to apologize not being able to response to the transmission of your antecessor asking for help. A major JWar battle happened here in JSector and we from JCompany have to, again, do damage control. We, despite representing an entire interstellar empire, have to do damage control of a war promoted by 10 other entire interstellar empires!!!
... sorry for my outrage, I just need a moment...
Well, but now that we can emerge ourselves over another war crisis, after becoming pressed over by even the mainstream media news, we can focus in events outside JSector!
We sure thanks the Void Eye Empire for being able to first response your calls for help, free you from your ice prison and give you resources to leave the ice planet.
And yes, we from JCompany can create a trade route to Dulinkos or whatever place you choose to realocate, in order to provide everything you need to rebuild!
But we think we can do even more: we can terraform Dulinkos!
Sure, terraforming a rogue planet is a real challenge, never done before as far as we know, that not even a Staff of Life can do! But, during a reunion with our best JSluggerberus natural researchers, they got an idea: use the planetary core as source of heat and light needed to sustain life in a soon-to-be terraformed rogue planet, simulating the star such thing would need!
With the "rogue problem" solved, then we can use the Staff of Life, or even do "traditional" terraformation! There you go, the very first fully terraformed rogue planet with self starlight!
This surely ambitious plan would provide your people a good place to stay until you decide to realocate elsewhere, and also help with the Void Eye Empire plans to make a shelter and a base of operations there!
If everything go right, this would become a great historical event in this Gigaquadrant! If everything go wrong, you guys are leaving the planet anyway! So, what do you say?
Nirvax'kottar, Former and Current Leader of the Dulinket Aristocracy That's quite the Plan you have there! I'll be very impressed if you manage to Terraform. You can come already, just remember to bring some protection from the Cold. Temperatures can get very close to Absolute Zero!
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Thank you for the recognition! We sent to Dulinkos our Ecologist JSpaceships, JSpaceships specialized in harsh environments and terraformation, to begin the works!
Nirvax'kottar, Former and Current Leader of the Dulinket Aristocracy That's wonderful. Just make sure to not accidentally melt the Ice from under our Buildings, let them walk away first.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Don't worry, we will be extra careful, and will be using incremental approach to prevent any damage from sudden massive ice melting.
Nirvax'kottar, Former and Current Leader of the Dulinket Aristocracy How's the Project going so far? We need some Info so we can update the Database.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany The JTerraforming Project is progressing faster than I antecipated! The JStar can actually work together with the Void Eye Empire's Temperature Stabilization Device, to control the planet temperature and the ice melting!
As planned, regions with buildings more dependent of ice sustentation are being dealt with extra care. Such regions can remain colder than other regions for safety, to keep the necessary ice, until another engineering solution appears, for each specific case.
The temperature are being adjusted together with the increasing of atmosphere and the inclusion of vegetation and land wildlife, by Reverse Safari Vacuum, on the islands that are appearing as the ice melts! The planet already have its own marine wildlife, so we just need to supervise them integration to the new oceans being formed!
If nothing wrong happen, full terraformation will be completed shortly! Also, we managed to acquired some Warp Tech Devices from other trade partners of ours to put in your planet, as it will be more useful than depending on space wormholes that would be useful only while the rogue planet pass close to them!
Nirvax'kottar, Former and Current Leader of the Dulinket Aristocracy Wonderful, I'll get the Database updated. Also, remember when I mentioned the Buildings have Mechanical Legs? You could just ask the Inhabitants (or in some cases the Controlling A.I.) to move the Buildings to the Seafloor. We have Gills alongside our Lungs, so there wouldn't be any Problems.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Good to know, that explain some reports I received from researchers worried about missing Buildings later reappearing elsewhere!
Some researchers learned this before from Inhabitants, but the Controlling A.I. ones really confused the most old-timers natural researchers!
Anyway, I will inform all the researchers about asking the Buildings to move! This shall speed up things even more!
Nirvax'kottar, Former and Current Leader of the Dulinket Aristocracy Wonderful. It's great to see all of this Unfold. Especially if you've got as great an orbital view right now as me!
Hello again, Nirvax'kottar, It's good to see that the JCompany helps you in terraforming Dulinkos. I wanted to ask if you want to start a trade route with us. We can trade technology, spice of all sorts (black spice and white spice included), materials and many other things. What do you think about it?
Nirvax'kottar, Former and Current Leader of the Dulinket Aristocracy I like the sound of that! I think I'll take the Resources and maybe some Technology for making stuff Float in the Air. All we have here is a weird, Glassy Crystal and random Water Rocks. Although, now, with the Terraforming, there are a bunch of Plants we could trade. What would interest you the most?
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord You can send us those strange crystals and new plants are always helpful for terraforming. We will take both if you don't have anything else to trade.
Nirvax'kottar, Former and Current Leader of the Dulinket Aristocracy Sure, you can have both. We'd give you Resources, but We need those.
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Also, I forgot to mention that we opened up a wormhole at our homeworld that leads to Dulinkos so that we don't need to travel long distances to trade.
Nirvax'kottar, Former and Current Leader of the Dulinket Aristocracy Good! Just keep in mind that you might have to move the Wormhole every now and then, it's a Rogue Planet after all.
Greetings, Citizens of the Gigaquadrant
I am a representative of the Chonostonian Republic and wish to extend a greeting to all of you. We wish to Introduce ourselves to the rest of this so-called Gigaquadrant. We are the Chonostonian Republic, a proud Empire of Fire-Dwellers and friends with the Elysian Empire. If you have questions, feel free to ask, there will most likely be a Representative here to answer your question.
I have a question; When will we finally grow faster?
A Representative of the Chonostonian Republic Who is... we? Does it have anything to do with us?
Ipliq, Communications Director for the Republic of Grubmolians I absolutely apologize for the inconvenience. Tyrolox got a hold of the transmission center and sent a message.
I have a better question than him. How does your species survive in such scorching temperatures?
A Representative of the Chonostonian Republic It seems that our earliest ancestors were strange Lava-Dwelling Fishlike creatures. Why they could (and we now can) resist such Temperatures... we don't know. Still researching that, I think it might take a while.
A Representative of the Chonostonian Republic
If anyone else has any more Questions, feel free to ask! Our Communications Network Delays have finally been fixed, so Answers should come in quicker.
Fire-Dwellers, you say? Could it be? A civilisation of a species with a biology that can withstand normal heat levels? You have my interest. Tell me...is yours a society of order, or anarchy? Of strength, or weakness?
A Representative of the Chonostonian Republic Our Government is a Republic, and we put a lot of Value in both Strength of Mind and a Sense of Order. Our Leader, Krt'z Ka'or, has a lot of Both and is one of the few Individuals who can harness Magic, although we all have a basic understanding of Fire Manipulation.
Democracy. How unfortunate. The Yorchi Union prides itself on authority, discipline, dignity. Nonetheless, it is your civilisation, not mine. So long as you don’t force that so-called freedom upon us, I can overlook ideology. As for magic...magic? What an unusual claim to possess. This is truly an extraordinary universe. We may not be able to conjure fireballs from our hands alone, but fire flows through our flamethrowers all the same.
A Representative of the Chonostonian Republic Very well. Other Empires have other Ideals and we are not ones to force others to be like us. You aren't a Democracy, we're fine with that.
I have a question to you, Fire-Dweller stranger: Did you bring money? Because we have a lot of things on sale!
We from JCompany can trade everything, from spice to technology! Just say a word, and we will send our best trader JSpaceships to deliver our best goods right to your fiery doorstep! We accept from sporebucks to Magitech Creations!
A Representative of the Chonostonian Republic A Curious offer... I'll go and ask our Trade Manager, Krz'at Kol.
A Representative of the Chonostonian Republic He said that he agrees to trade both our White Spice and our Magitech in exchange for your Spices and Technology. I hope you have wormholes or something, because we don't.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Thank you very much for accept your offer, Fire-Dweller friend! Don't worry, we have Wormhole Keys to spare. Nothing can stop our trade routes!
Our JSpaceships may arrive at your homeworld Eiranos real soon, with all our goods for sell! I recommend the Purple Spice, but you may like the Red ones as well! Feel free to visit us anytime!
A Representative of the Chonostonian Republic Wonderful. I think I can see them coming already! Thanks for wanting to Trade with us. The Magitech might be very Confusing, so we would gladly send some Instruction Manuals if you want. Should we?
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Sure, sure, send some manuals! I am receiving confusing reports from our representives, of they seeing fire being conjured from nowhere, and fire "dancing around" right in front of them. Our guys sure looks impressed, and wants to do the same with this Magitech!
A Representative of the Chonostonian Republic Manuals are being sent as we speak! We'd also like to ask if you would like to have some of our Scientists and Sorcerers come over to help with the Usage, as the Manuals are... Mediocre at best.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Good idea! Some personal know-how talk between specialists can sure do more than just manuals!
The representant team I sent includes some JCreepy guys. Don't let the name scare you, they are the best scientists JSector can offer! Our scientists and yours will sure have some very productive talks!
I thought about send some JSluggerberus guys too, our best natural researchers in JSector, but... JSluggerberuses and JCreepies don't look eye-to-eye very much... some political topics around, we have to alocate them in different planets, kinda a mess... I hope it don't prejudice the work very much.
A Representative of the Chonostonian Republic We'll try to make it work. Also, I wanted to mention that we are working on a Dyson Swarm (Dyson Sphere, but satellites) !
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Oh, we can help with that too! We can work with Dyson Swarms, Rings, Bubbles, Shells and Webs! Dyson megastructures for all tastes and budgets! My representant team can be asked for details!
A Representative of the Chonostonian Republic Good to know, but our Space Travel requires very, very extensive Knowledge of the Technology of our Allies, the Elysian Empire. I think that even a Trained Individual might have trouble explaining it to you... They are pretty nice though, I think they would like to trade as well!
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Hum, I think we can contact the Elysian Empire, then! We are always eager for new customers!
A Representative of the Chonostonian Republic No seriously, I think they would appreciate some messages directed at them.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Just contacted them. You are right, we are nice and agreed to trade too!
Dorshan, Head Economist of the Elysian Empire So, it has been decided that we will trade. So what exactly do you want to trade? You can ask for something special and we will see if we can get that anywhere. You could also ask us for suggestions.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Salutations, Dorshan! We can trade everything, from spice to technology, and accept from sporebucks to any new valuable resources and technologies!
For now, we from JCompany are interested in new enterprises around the First Gigaquadrant, such enterprises until recently unknown here in our relatively tiny JSector. From your allies of Chonostonian Republic, for example, we trade for White Spice and MagiTech. White Spice are really rare in JSector, and we had nothing like MagiTech before!
From you, we heard some fascinating things about Energy Crystals and Arcana! We sure are interesting in such resources and know-how! We can help you and your allies with our engineering know-how about, for example, Antimatter and Dyson megastructures buildings! We also have an ample collection of goods to trade, from spices to high-tech tools for Space Travel!
That's our proposal. If you have think else in mind, just ask and we can search for it in our emporium!
Dorshan, Head Economist of the Elysian Empire That sounds wonderful. These Crystals, however, are a recent discovery and not much is Known. What we do know is that it constantly changes Temperature. Observed Temperatures range from 10.23 Kelvin all the way to 51467 Kelvin! Caution is advised. As for what we want from you, I think your offer is splendid. I have to add that sadly, Arcana is not something easily manipulated by most beings. We have a natural affinity for the Arcane and thus can easily make Magical objects. Most beings don't have the Mental Capacity for efficiently using Arcana, but can still use the Magical Objects. We are working on Magical Objects to allow other Beings to easily manipulate the Arcane, but it's proving to be way more work than we originally thought. Would you be OK if we just assembled what you requested for the time being?
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Sure, take your time to assemble everything. Our scientists sent to Eiranos are already fascinated with the MagiTech, we will be even more with such Magical Objects and Energy Crystals!
Dorshan, Head Economist of the Elysian Empire Good to see such enthusiasm in other Empires. Also, the Dyson Swarm Project we and the Chonostonian Republic are working on together is finished soon!
We gladly accept your trade offer, Krz'at Kor. We are willing to trade your white spice with our black spice. The black spice is harvested out of the rotational black holes where we build some of our bases. Although small amount of Void Energy is required to create it, it is not dangerous. We can create a wormhole near our homeworld where we can set up a trade route.
So, when should we start trading?
A Representative of the Chonostonian Republic I would love to start trading right now, if possible. We recently found a way to produce ample amounts of White Spice, so trade can go on for long. If you have questions about White Spice, feel free to ask!
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Great, we opened the wormhole near our homeworld and we are sending some ships to your homeworld. We can start trading soon. And, could you please explain the nature of the white spice and what it does to me?
A Representative of the Chonostonian Republic Ahh, White Spice. Quite the oddball, this Stuff. It doesn't do much by itself, but under the influence of certain (mostly extreme) things such as Lava, Liquid Nitrogen, or probably even Void Energy, it can exhibit a multitude of strange effects, most of which are unresearched! If you find out what it does with Void Energy, please let me know. Also, just for reassuring, Organic Creatures are uneffected by White Spice. Additionally, White Spice is an excellent Arcane Conductor, but I doubt that that's important for you.
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Hmm, we got very interesting results when we combined your white spice with the Void Energy. It creates a black crystal like substance with white light flashing in it. We are currently researching the abilities of these crystals and it seems like they can boost the Void power of those who are nearby. However we are not entirely sure about it, it needs more research...
A Representative of the Chonostonian Republic Sounds... Interesting. Does it have any other Effects on its Surroundings?
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord No, we haven't found any other effects on its surroundings yet. We are just starting to research it, we will post updates here. Also, I forgot to mention that it creates the crystals only when Void liquid is used, In other cases the Void Energy tends to consume the white spice and get more powerful.
A Representative of the Chonostonian Republic Weird... Alright, I'll remember to check here every now and then! Is there anything special that your Black Spice does/can do?
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Yes, our black spice can be used to do many different things. It can serve as fuel to create small black holes. It can also be used to produce antidepressants due to the use of Void Energy to create it. It is tasteless but it has a refreshing effect. The black spice has of course other properties, but we need time to investigate them.
ACTIVATED Our connection is established and our communications complete. The efforts to successfully create a signal booster and a subsequent station powerful enough to send these signals through the wormhole barriers was no small effort. To those that receive this wide-range transmission throughout the galaxies of the Gigaquadrant, we are the Infinite Council of the Inuneridality - we all represent a facet of our civilization’s own system; war, bureaucracy, research advancement, all that keeps our Inuneridality alive in our galaxy. But to you all, we speak as one.
We lead a militaristic empire of clones, but fear nor - we war only when necessary to protect our empire. Our people live lives of luxury and safety, and we believe in true order for our home. We live in what we call Vazar, Nid’haziran, Thuri Lai, or other terms the other civilizations call this galaxy - but to you all, our home is called the Eupherion Galaxy. We extend this greeting from our home of Rivis Eotera, where we live and work as the rulers of the Inuneridality.
Do not be afraid to ask our representative, the Alderman Tharag, about the culture of Eupherion. I have no doubts additional messages from other powers will be received shortly.
Oh what the fuck!? Samut'angari inscriptions!? Is this the fucking War of Ages again!? Anyways, greetings Inuneridality and the Infinite Council that leads it, I am President Somonthalle Nathilik, I am the president and leader of a republic known as the United Commonwealth of the Lsjanpodos Union Republic, commonly referred to as the Lsjanpodos. It is a pleasure to meet you, this marks the first time we have any contact with the Eupherion Galaxy, closest thing we had to contact with Eupherion until now was finding Zalax ruins and incorperating Zalax tech into ours. According to Zalax archival records, they came from the Eupherion Galaxy, I hope as inhabitants of Eupherion you can confirm this. Consider friendly contacts established, we'll ask some questions about Eupherion and your empire later.
We bid our own welcome to the First Gigaquadrant. We are Xrykoria - but to the other nations out there, the proper term would perhaps be the Second Xrykorian Alliance. We are one of the few true democratic bastions in the galaxy, and I extend a hand of friendship to those that intercept this message.
Greetings Second Xrykorian Alliance, this is President Somonthalle Nathilik of the Grand United Commonwealth of the Lsjanpodos Union Republic, or the Lsjanpodos if you don't have all day to say it. You can see that some demons are sending utter nonsense which I believe are threats considering the nature of these demons, regardless, it's pleasant to see that more powers from Eupherion are starting to make contact with the wider Gigaquadrant.
Greetings Inuneridality, I am Overlord of the Void Eye Empire, we are pleased to meet you. It is good to see that the species of the Eupherion galaxy are opening contact with the Gigaquadrant. Anyway, we look towards good relationships with you.
We have started a new Project involving an Object known as a "Monolith", an advanced Evolution Accelerator. We placed it on a nearby Planet with a Tribe of Humanoid Ducks on it and wish to see how this will turn out. We will make sure they send their Welcome Message here. Look forward to a new Spacefaring Civilization and until soon,
Did you leave a message on the monolith saying "Hello, if you can read this, we uplifted you" so they would figure out where they came from? It's always healthy to leave a message for them to read later. I think.
Osvan, Head Scientist of the Elysian Empire Terravis told me she Engraved the Message on all the Monolith Casings before adding the Technology, so all should be well.
Foolish... Absolutely Foolish. I can't wait to Toy with these Duck People...
Osvan, Head Scientist of the Elysian Empire Umm...
Terravis? What did you do?
-Background- I don't know!
Well that's just Great...
Terravis, Head Mechanic of the Elysian Empire Well, looks like I might have accidentally added one of the Higher-Tier AI Contructs to the Monolith sent to the Duck Person Planet. Let's hope the Monolith doesn't get too out of Hand...
Osvan's Monolith That was just a Joke, calm down you two. Yes, you seem to have added the wrong Module, but that just makes it funnier. Imagine the Duck People's Surprise when they notice the "Weird Black Thing" can Talk! I can't wait...
MONOLITH STATUS REPORT The Two Cities on the Planet I was sent to just signed a Peace Treaty. Things are looking up and up for these Humanoid Ducks.
MONOLITH STATUS REPORT Looks like these Duck People are working on Space Travel... They didn't even make it into Orbit yet *snicker*.
Greetings, I am Overlord from the Void Eye Empire, we come in peace.
Our Empire is not as big as the other ones, we are usually peaceful and we are open for new relationships, however I would not recommend you to insult us. We worship the Void Energy, many of you will not like it but we mean no harm to you.
We are located in the Andromeda galaxy, in the Umbra region between the New Tadpole Empire and the New Tertamian Alliance.
We seek new allies and new trade routes to expand our empire, we have many technologies to share…
We look towards good relationships with the empires of the First Gigaquadrant.
Greetings and salutations, sir Overlord, and welcome to the Gigaquadrent. I'm sure that you'll find it quite comfortable here as long as you stay away from certain people. While we are millions of years away from you, we give you our welcoming and gift of harmony.
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Could you please tell us who those certain people are?
And are you interested in trading? We have many goods to trade with you, mostly technology. Although you are many millions of years away from us, we could create a wormhole near our homeworld using 'it' where we could set up a trade route with you.
Ipliq, Communications Director for the Republic of Grubmolians Wormhole technology sounds interesting. Do you happen to have any spice of sorts? We're on a high demand for green to make more tea.
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Yes, we have much spice of the rare sorts, not so much of the common ones though and of course our new invented black spice, that is refreshing and you can make black tea out of it. So when should we start trading?
Ipliq, Communications Director for the Republic of Grubmolians We'll order a few containers of Green Spice just to be safe, we'll work on finding a proper colony and its coordinates.
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Fine, we opened a wormhole near your home system for now and we will send a spaceship to deliver the green spice to you.
Tyrolox, Emperor of the Republic of Grubmolians I'll request 250 pineapple pizzas for our next party. No stuffed crust, I'll take it no later than 10 days.
Ipliq, Communications Director for the Republic of Grubmolians Tyro, no. Stop spending half the budget on pizzas.
I apologize, we'll pay you for the shipping. Thank you for the green spice.
Osvan, Head Scientist of the Elysian Empire
Ooh, new people! I, Osvan, would like to Welcome you to this Communication Channel. Say, as the Head Scientist, I would like to inquire about what this "Void Energy" you are talking about is. Sounds Interesting!
Osvan, Head Scientist of the Elysian Empire What can it do? That's really my biggest Question right now.
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Void Energy is a strange form of essence that seems to defy the laws of physics. It focuses mainly on the control of gravity. If you are skilled with it you can create objects out of nothing and you have access to teleportation. If you find a source of the Void Energy or a gate to the Abyss, you can get near infinite energy. You can also make wormholes with it. But I must warn you that you need to be very experienced at it to use the high tier powers, because the consequences could be very grave.
Your usage of that energy has left me dumbfounded. The Nyarqaeshu wanted us all eradicated because of that energy, and that's the least of the drawbacks of using that. The path of Element-aligned Essence should be your path, not that of Void Energy.
The Dynast of the Dynastic Systems: His Eminence, Dynast Vhamlas Naralhi Nyarqaeshu were Ultraterrestrials, a race of god-like technologically ascended beings from the Milky Way. They were the principle users and godform that represented Void Energy. It was only a decade and a half ago that their leader, Xizothano Ada, came back to exert control over Mirus. His genocidal rampage with the energy left a scar much like the Drakodominatus Tyranny, but we had managed to avoid his wrath for the most part. The few records we have of precursor Zalax archival entries states that they also had avoided the Nyarqaeshu.
Osvan, Head Scientist of the Elysian Empire So, it has a bad Reputation? Unless I misunderstood something...
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord We do not worship the Nyarqaeshu or Xizothano Ada. Yes, the Void Energy may seem to destructive at first, but if you are skilled at it and do not overuse it, then you will get all the benefits. Only because the Xizothano Ada wanted to destroy everything using it, it doesn't mean the Void Energy is bad.
Osvan, Head Scientist of the Elysian Empire Good Reasoning, I like that!
The Dynast of the Dynastic Systems: His Eminence, Dynast Vhamlas Naralhi Untrue. It robs of your being, dominates and erodes your mind like a tide against stone as you slowly lose your personality. You become unliving, a puppet of Ada, and compelled to destroy and render everything in your reach back into nothing. I have seen this myself many times, through the eyewitness accounts of fellow leaders who were targeted by former friends who believed it was controllable. There is only one, perhaps two individuals who could exert control over the energy.
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord First of all, Ada is now consumed, he lost all his god-like powers. Second Ada has not the control over all the Void Energy from the Abyss. Third @!*42%7?/ w(@l c%m$... Finally we have 'it' and 'it' can protect us from the influence that Ada makes. You will only hollow your soul if you overuse it.
I realize Ada is dead, but if he lays absorbed by Terikalinra, then nobody ever could control it. Never the less, the path of mystic and elemental Essences is far more pure than the pursuit of chaotic and neutral Essences. I am sad you could not learn the true power of Psionic Energy before you were chained to Void Energy.
Osvan, Head Scientist of the Elysian Empire ...maybe Something Else? This is starting to unnerve Me...
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Well, the Void Energy is not chaotic and it is better than the mystic and elemental essences at some points. We think that the Void Energy is the purest essence existing in the universe along with the opposite of it. Anyway lets close this topic.
Osvan, Head Scientist of the Elysian Empire Ok then, I'll tell Marnas to write you down in our Empires List. Have a nice Day!
You are messing with things beyond your ability to comprehended, beyond anyone's ability to comprehend. If you wish to understand what I speak of try this little exercise, try to imagine perceiving nothing. Except there's a catch, if you perceive nothing (which the Void is) that there is not truly nothing for you still perceive and thus you still exist. Thus you must not perceive at all to perceive nothing.
Osvan, Head Scientist of the Elysian Empire So... you have to be dead to comprehend the Void? But then you can't comprehend anything! Or is that the Point... My Head Hurts...
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord This is true, you must exist and not exist at the same time to fully understand the Void, this means you must be as one as the Void to understand it.
Welcome to the Gigaquadrantic stage Void Eye Empire. Let it be known that we're pretty suspicious of you at the moment, for similar reasons the Dynastic Systems of Sal'ir and Sacred Vanara Empire have stated, so we won't go detailed about it, simply put, Void Energy is pure evil of nothingness and best avoided at all costs. As for our diplomatic approach to the Void Eye Empire, we are staying off of you for now. For now, trade between us and you is closed and our view of the Void Eye Empire is currently leaning towards negative and distrust.
Greetings, Overlord! I noted your empire and mine are doing common actions across the Gigaquadrant, but we never made proper apresentations to each other before!
I am JOmnivore, Leader of the JOmnivore Empire and Tycoon of its main company, JCompany! We come in peace, to trade and to help others civilizations, then we can trade even more!
We propose trade routes with your empire, as we are interested in your Void tech and Black Spice! Interested? Also, we are working on terraforming Dulinkos, making it better as shelter and base of operations, what should facilitates such trade routes creation even more!
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Greetings to you too, Tycoon JOmnivore. Yes, we are interested in starting a trade route with your company. We are currently in need of Colony Incredi-Paks and other colony tools, so we can trade them for our Void tech and black spice. But there is a problem, our Void tech functions on Void Energy, this means that you can't use it without the Void Energy. There are 4 solutions to this:
1) You need to find a source of Void Energy like 'it'.
2) You need to give us some energy to convert to Void Energy by using 'it'. Then we will give back your Void Energy.
3) You can just buy it from us.
4) You need to become a Void Zealot.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Thank you for your response, Overlord! We sure have lots of colony tools for sell in our emporium, including Colony Incredi-Paks!
About the Void Energy problem you mentioned, we from JCompany believes in redundancy to increase reliability, so we will act in the 4 solutions you suggested!
1) We have resources and personnel available to search for such 'it' Void Energy source! Any hints where we can find such 'it'?
2) We can give you some of our antimatter energy to convert to Void Energy by using your 'it'!
3) We can also buy it from you too, no problem!
4) Well, we JOmnivores are not much the zealot type of folks... however, we have these JGrox employees that may help with such solution!
About our JGroxs, they are not the Grox machine guys every Gigaquadrantian loves to hate! These guys believes that they, as Grox descendants, must redempt themselves, by Faith!
Most JGroxs are seeking "JWar redemption", embracing the ideals of the JHorde, and leading them against the "tiranny" of the JAlliance! However, a small dissident group of JGroxs refused to join the war, and we from JCompany offered jobs for such refugees! They accepted, but... they are not exactly the most dedicated workers we have... just imagine a Zealot without a cause to fight for!
After your response, we have a serious reunion with them, and we offered them a chance to become the first JCompany's Void Zealots, the very first Void Zealots in JSector! We told them that this is their best chance to reach a peaceful redemption, and to help JCompany to grow to the point we may end JWar, the war that sepparated them from their loved ones!
Man, they cried! I saw hope in their eyes, a hope losted for a long time! They smiled and started to rejoice! They hugged me and promised they are willing to decidate their lives to the Void, if it means bring peace to JSector!
So yes, we have Zealots fully-motivated to embrace the Void! We sent them in their Zealot JSpaceships to your location, to start our trade route and their convertion, and they will be responsible for the recently inaugured Void JDivision of JCompany!
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Good to hear, we have opened another wormhole at our homeworld.The trading will start soon.
But there are problems with your solutions to this:
1. 'It' is an ancient relic and we don't think that there are copies of 'it'. However, you could search for other relics that look like 'it', not all would contain a source of Void Energy, but if you found one we would give you a big reward (10'000'000 Sporebucks), but finding them is very difficult since they are scattered across the Gigaquadrant.
2. This could work but I would advise the number 3.
3. This is the easiest way to both of us.
4. Sadly, we are not able to convert them into our religion. We are sorry but it isn't possible.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Hum... OK, let's stick with the trade route and the solution 3 then!
However, I won't undo the creation of the Void JDivision, as our JGroxs seems to really care with the new company division, but instead I will adjust its function: the Void JDivision will be responsable of the Void tech and Void Energy trade, and also on the search of 'it'-like relics!
The trade involving Void will also be done by Zealot JSpaceships instead of Trader JSpaceships, as they seems more appropriate!
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord If you want to help us in finding those relics you need to get the Void Relic Detection Device. We will send you one of those so you can search Void relics in the Milky Way Galaxy. The reward for finding and giving us a Void relic is around 10'000'000 Sporebucks.
A war is coming to the void eyes and that war needs to be stopped before it can grow into a intergalactic conflict.
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord The war, the war, the war... Yes, it is coming for us and there is nearly nothing that we can do about it. We are sorry that it has come so far, but we do not know any way to stop it because the races that hate us won't stop until our beliefs are completely destroyed. We can sense their hatred and ignorance, but we are not the ones to judge them... If you know a way to stop the upcoming war, then tell it.
Emperor Ipliq, Communications Director and Emperor of the UROG We lack a true understanding of Void Energy- but it is my suggestion that you stay away from any void related activity- or void relic hunting- Whatever it takes.
And while we don't agree with your usage of this energy- We will defend you, but only if the conflict is started by a despising empire before you mess up- or release something terrible. But only under those conditions.
On behalf of the Void Eye Empire: Overlord Fine, if that's all that we need to do, then we will stop searching the Void relics.
Looks like my prediction was right. It's sad. They all think they're in the right when none of them are in the right, including the Void Eyes.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is why you do not juggle with essence or energy. Either you turn into a weird demon hellbent on destroying things, become a god that wants to save everything but gets killed, or are shamed because you use an essence used by a former evil race.
I don't think we can help you, but I'm sure if you can tell us more we could get you out of the situation you're in, or something.
Unless you don't know how to fix the tech.
Message from the *CORRUPTED* Empire Well, our crew's best (and only really certified) Mechanic is lost somewhere in nowhere, so there goes thA&. dam/(4! The Connection is breaking up Ag%çZ! Hang @n... OOOohH Deaç, this wi&+ tak# a Whi/¢...
I'm saddened to hear that in their hour of need, they still could not efficiently secure a transmission.

Message from the Elysian Empire
Yes! It worked! Finally... This took Hours to fix!
Message from the Elysian Empire's Leader and Captain, Bascaran However, the Engines are still on the Fritz and (as you might have gathered) our Crew's only certified and experienced Mechanic is God knows where, so Help would be very appreciated.
Ipliq, Communications Director for the Republic of Grubmolians You're located in the Carina Arm? Why, that's why we're located! I'm assuming your SETI is still working; Can you hear any other signals other than us?
I'll try to get an expert on this, hopefully she can help you.
Message from the Elysian Empire's Leader and Captain, Bascaran Hmm... Thing's not working as well as it used to, but I can pick up some faint signatures of... Hmm... that might be you, can't quite tell.
Message from the Elysian Empire's Leader and Captain, Bascaran Hrrrngh, stupid SETI Device! The darn thing just gave up on me!
Message from the Elysian Empire's Leader and Captain, Bascaran There, Thing's fixed, Ship's Board "Computer" was Distracted by a Moth in the Central Chamber. Excuse the Inconvenience.
Message from the Elysian Empire's Leader and Captain, Bascaran Hmm... There are some Faint Signatures, I'm going to try Dialing to their Frequencies. See if they want to help.
Ipliq, Communications Director for the Republic of Grubmolians I hope you pick up something promising. I'm going to alert our outermost colonies, hopefully they can scout out for you.
Message from the Elysian Empire's Leader and Captain, Bascaran Thanks! I hope that this Endeavor proves successful...
Message from the Elysian Empire's Leader and Captain, Bascaran Well, I don't know why, but I sort of expected that. Still, Our Race is descendant of Insects, not Monkeys. So, there. Feel free to improve a little on your Insult.
Message from the Elysian Empire's Leader and Captain, Bascaran Well, this isn't working out too well. All I found seems to have been some Arrogant Person. How's the Scouting going?
Message from the Elysian Empire's Leader and Captain, Bascaran Hmm... I'll try finding out where exactly I am... That might help your Efforts. Maybe I'll try communicating with the Elysian Council as well, just in case.
Message from the Elysian Empire's Leader and Captain, Bascaran Hmm... Looks like I'm orbiting a Planet approximately 45.3 Parsecs from Eironus, my Empire's Home Planet. It'd be an easy Flight if my Engine wasn't broken... I hope this helps.
Ipliq, Communications Director for the Republic of Grubmolians One of our pilots said they found a... Purplish colored spacecraft with some claws orbiting around a planet via telescope, they say it's a few million miles away.
Message from the Elysian Empire's Leader and Captain, Bascaran Bingo! That should be my Personal Ship. I'll be there (not like I have another Choice)!
Message from the Elysian Empire's Leader and Captain, Bascaran *Unintelligible Murmuring*
A Spacecraft you Say?
Oh, this is Perfect! Hang on...
Lots of Unintelligible Murmuring*
Ipliq, Communications Director for the Republic of Grubmolians Do you happen to see a green and cyan colored spacecraft a few thousand feet away? They're sending a SETI signal to make sure, and we can pick it up all the way from Mutypla
Message from the Elysian Empire's Leader and Captain, Bascaran Yeah, the Colours Match, and our Head Scientist here says that it is approximately a few thousand feet away... Looking good! And yes, the SETI Radar is having a Lightshow Party over here...
Message from the Elysian Empire's Leader and Captain, Bascaran *Murmuring*
What? No, I don't want-
I said NO! I don't-
Just Chuck it in the Bin!
Sorry for the Inconvenience... Dammit, Jeff!

Ipliq, Communications Director for the Republic of Grubmolians Did you hear a clank at the back of the ship? They're going to tow you to a nearby spaceport or a nearby planet to try and get it repaired so you can return to your people. Hold on, I'm gonna go and monitor this.

Message from the Elysian Empire's Leader and Captain, Bascaran Sorry, but this is just Hilarious. If I had an Actual Mouth instead of a Proboscis, I would be Laughing a lot right now. Don't take this as an Insult...
We've landed on a... Largely vegetated planet with what looks to be... Cyanish... Turquoish water. Does that sound familiar?
Message from the Elysian Empire's Leader and Captain, Bascaran Well if it ain't Eiranus... There should be a little Group of Elysians at the Landing Site. Is that the Case?
Well, whatever the Case, I need to shut off Communications For now. I think I'll reactivate Comms in the next Earth Day. See you (probably) until then!
Osvan, Head Scientist of the Elysian Empire Hello there! I just wanted to thank the Grubmaw Empire for helping Emperor and Captain Bascaran return to Eiranos.
Because I am too lazy to make a proper introduction for my people- I am Ipliq, lead member of the Council and the Emperor of the United Republic of Grubmolians. We are relatively peaceful, but I will warn you that any attempts on completely obliterating our species will result in you burning in hell and your civilians being purged. Thank you.
Does anybody here just stop to think and wonder where we came from. We evolved from... Teeny tiny microscopic cells, and look where we are now. We've got civilizations with entire star systems to their name. Wow, our ancestors had no idea where we were going, weren't they?
Greetings, Ipliq! I am Tycoon JOmnivore, leader of the JOmnivore Empire and our main company, the JCompany! Pleased to meet you!
Our JCompany have a Science JDivision, where our JCreepy employees, the best scientists in JSector, conducts various scientic projects, including genetic engineering! We sent them in their Scientist JSpaceships to Mutypla to help your researchers with these bizarre creatures becoming tribal!
Also, how about we open a trade route to trade more knowledge and science tech? We sure can find something like that to trade in our JEmporium!
Ipliq, Communications Director for the Republic of Grubmolians We'll let our scientists and officials down at Mutypla that you are welcome in our presence. We are glad to accept your trade offer. Hopefully we can resolve this issue together. We've already received signals of alien transmissions on our planet, and it doesn't look like you guys.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Thank you for accepting our offer! This may help us to deal with such issue!
So such aggressive tribal aliens can already do transmissions? They are developing technology fast!
If this situation escalates too much, our scientists developed various calibers of gravitational weapons to deal with any hostile technology used against us both! Hope we don't have to use them, but our scientists are ready for any situation!
Ipliq, Communications Director for the Republic of Grubmolians Do you happen to have any sort of translator technology we could use to possibly speak to them? Our's doesn't work.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Sure! All our JSpaceships have the JTranslator, our universal translator, as standard equipment! It can translate our JLanguage, your Grubmolian and any other language! I will inform our scientists to allow your scientists and officials to use it, so we can read the alien transmissions!
Ipliq, Communications Director for the Republic of Grubmolians We don't think that we can even begin to mention the things these creatures are saying- we say this merely out of respect for all the life out there and the horrible things they're saying. We'll try to release out a transcript of the interview recently conducted with our lead scientist.
I think we should search for such Chieftain Iero, that can help us to understand the problem with the transmissions!
I am sending some JCutes for support, in their Diplomat JSpaceships. They are problem solvers! They can help us to negociate with the aliens, if necessary.
We should also search for the "rogue" lab mentioned. It may have some answers!
Chieftain Iero's Communications Channel. That interview is a bunch of lies made up by your government to cover up the truth. We have nothing to do with these transmissions.
Tyrolox, Emperor of the Republic of Grubmolians Seeing how we've tracked the location of your communications our agents are arriving and have the area secured by land, sea, and water. Congratulations, you messed up.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Hum... I just received a report from my JCute ambassadors! They raised some points about the interview!
We can offer some interrogation techniques training, along with Super Happy Ray technology to help it! Maybe with this we may get some true, direct, honest, and even heartful answers! It will work better than electric shocks, trust me!
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany What plot twist! Glad our Super Happy Ray could help!
My scientists asked to help with the DNA and ancestor tests! That's their expertise area, after all! Such tests should clarify these apparently family questions!
Well, the DNA tests showed up positive with an ancestry of Western Grubmolian and some other Mutypla species mixed in there.
The only problem is that there's a large piece of DNA belonging to the fallen emperor. Tyrolox is already disturbed enough by this despite his recent mood swings. I don't even know if it's just a coincidence, being kidnapped and experimented on, or something else. But it's freaking the hell out of him to the point of silence. I'm hoping it's just a side effect of the Super Happy Ray.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Well, the Super Happy Ray sure provides a fast, intense experience!
We can offer some less intense, slower experience, like the Mini Happy Ray or the average Happy Ray, not much effective for interrogations, but ideal for long-term, safe and stable psychological treatments! Our JCutes can offer such psychological support to Tyrolox, and teach such techniques to your people, to help him overcome this trauma!
Thank spode it isn't an actual threat. I've been up all night using coffee and monitoring the security monitors. What the hell was in those drinks at the lab? I can't even sleep.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Problems to sleep? We can offer you some blue spice, to help you rest better when you get time to do so, then you will be well rested when returning to the next shift work!
Welp. We've just installed a Grubmolian citizen's consciousness into one of our androids. He appears to be functioning fine, retains memories, and yes, he was willing to participate and we installed him with moral knowledge of the empire and is able to process emotions. Perhaps, one day us Grubmolians shall be able to walk around the Galaxy, free from the struggles of mortality. Then again, it's probably not likely.
Does anybody have a physical copy of that really old game called Spore? I'm on a gaming collective spree and I need one with a disc that can actually launch the game. I think it's at least 800 years old...
Emperor Ipliq, Emperor and Communications Director of the UROG I don't think it can run on any new OS for computers. Uhmmm. I mean- we could always downgrade... Windows... XK? Maybe 10? No- I don't think 10 can run anymore. Maybe Windows ∞? No- Wait. That's set to re-release for next year.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany What a coincidence! Spore happens to be the most played game here in JSector! Everyone have it and play it a lot! I have theorized that the main reason of the game success here, even after at least 800 years, is how easy it is for the players to create themselves in the game!...
We from JCompany developed an OS of our own that can play such old games: the JWindows! It's like Windows ∞, but it's open source, is compatible with lots of old technologies, and don't have lots of evil and bad stuff that comes with Windows ∞, like forced updates, forced subscriptions, back doors, intrusive ads, imposed use of Windows ∞ products, spywares, DRM, censorship, bugs and flaws, etc..
The OS is free, we charge just for special plugins, customization and support! We are sending shipments with physical copies of the game, game expansions and the OS to our trade routes and trade posts, and also providing digital copies in the JWeb, along with all known mods, including the most recent ones! Check it out!
Emperor Ipliq, Communications Director and Emperor of the UROG Wait a minute- how would the humans even know of the Grox before they were spacefaring- IS THIS A COINCIDENCE? THIS CONFUSES ME.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany What we from JSector know about humanity are that they are driven by imagination and curiosity! Imagination made they create science fantasy, making guesses of what they may encounter in the future! Curiosity made they sent probes to Space, allowing them to learn the mysteries of Space, even before they were spacefaring! I think that maybe the combination of both enabled a lucky guess!
But we cannot say for sure, as our knowledge about humanity is limited. Most empires in JSector never ventured outside JSector, becoming too busy at that stupid JWar! We from JCompany managed to recently venture outside our sector, and even outside our galaxy, but we never meet a human personally too!
Everything we know about humanity came from one of their probes, that we found in JSector a long time ago! The Spore game was there, among with other human items, as if the humans wanted us, or any other alien civilization, to find the probe and learn about them!
Today, that original copy of Spore, along with all the other items found in the probe, and the probe itself, are showed at the JMuseum, and treat as relics!
Yeah but what's even stranger is the fact that there's an entire wiki for it that I found an archive from and it has some sort of fictional universe that's based off of several 21st century sandbox games as well as movies, and some of these articles or whatever hold an almost exact resemblance to our empire and other's empires. And how did humans manage to study the culture of The Grox in detail- And who the hell is Steve? Steve's in this too- Is Maxisoft Studios telling us they're... The Grox?
I KNEW IT, MAXISOFT REALLY IS THE GROX! TYROLOX, GET ME INTO COMMUNICATIONS WITH JILL BRIGHT AND WEFF WRAUN!
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Wait, wait, wait... if Maxisoft Studios are the Grox, then the Spore game is just... Grox propaganda? Maybe that explain why Maxisoft choose to retrate in the game a period of time where the Grox was one of the largest and most powerful empires in the universe?
I don't know... like, why the Grox would even care about use propaganda on humans? And why they would put themselves in the game as villains, even going to the point to call themselves The Devil?
Maybe the game could instead be a warning about the Grox threat! Is Maxisoft Studios telling us to... search for Steve? Maybe the game itself was made by Steve, to warn the humans not just of the future of the galaxy and the universe, but of the future of Earth itself!
Maybe also the game would be made not just warn the humans, but other species as well, going to the point of put the game in space probes and dispatch them to the cosmos, for any spacefaring civilization to find them! That would explain a lot...
Jill Bright, founder and developer for Maxisoft Studios
The Grox literally just hacked themselves and Steve into the game. We couldn't find any way to remove them from the game without completely destroying the code, so we just stuck with it. As repercussions for ruining
my prized game, we decided to make them the most hated thing in the galaxy.
Weff Wraun, co-founder and developer for Maxisoft Studios
They weren't hacked into the game, we swore our allegiance to The Grox to keep them from destroying planet earth and as ransom we had to program their entire empire into the game and make them all powerful an mighty, remember?
We have recently arranged for a special festival which will be taking place on Mutypla around this year. You'll be welcomed with our luxurious cuisine, hotels, free tickets to our special guest's concert and contests of all sorts. The event only lasts for 5 Mutyplian days, though, so make sure to pack up for the occasion and get a souvenir from our gift shops.
JOmnivore, Tycoon of JCompany Hey, nice to see Mutypla up and running! There are some time since we from JCompany helped there!
We are organizing caravans from every empire of JSector to visit your festival! The JSluggers looks particulary enthusiastic, they love traveling!
I think I will visit there myself too! Mutypla, here we go!
Greetings to the Solariean Empire, we are known as the United Commonwealth of the Lsjanpodos Union Republic, commonly shortened to as the Lsjanpodos Union Republic or the United Commonwealth of the Lsjanpodos and regularly referred to as the Lsjanpodos. I am President Somonthalle Nathilik, it is good to see you're making contact with the Gigaquadrant and I bring my salutations to the Eupherion Galaxy. I hope friendly attitudes are met with both sides.
Celeste Reges: The Right Honourable Primus Capiti of the United Empire of Solariea Salutations, President Somonthalle Nathilik. Rest assured that I too hope that we can maintain positive relations. We aspire not for war, but for peace and diplomacy after all.
Hello, JMTV spectators! It's me, your favorite Galactic Star, on air to deliver you the finer music of the JSector!
This is a very special day to JMTV, because this is our very first transmission broadcasted to the entire Gigaquadrant! We probably should have asked the JAlliance or the JHorde them opinions about our move, but since them are too busy in that silly JWar of theirs, we thought: You know what? Let's "JUST DO IT!", as our favorite coach JSlugger would say.
With that, we expect a huge increase in our audience! If you are one of the folks that are watching us for the first time, allow me to introduce myself: I am Galactic Star JGoofy, leader of the JGoofy empire, transmiting from the JGoofy planet! It's less confusing once you get accostumed with this JTradition: the leader and the homeworld of a JSpecies can be named after the JSpecies. Simple, isn't it?
We JGoofies are the social, outgoing entertainers of the JSector, and our JMTV is the main TV channel of all empires in this sector! Hopefully, now we may also spread our JWay beyond too!
So, our dear new and old audience, sit back and enjoy!
JLadies and JGentlemen, JRock and JRoll!
Celeste Reges: The Right Honourable Primus Capiti of the United Empire of Solariea
Salutations and welcome to the Gigaquadrant. You seem interesting enough, I suppose.
Salutations, fellow Primus Capiti JMTV spectator! Thank you for your interest in JMTV and JGoofy empire, and for replying to us! We sure will feel welcome in this Gigaquadrant if we got groupies as nice and beautiful as yourself!
And now some more finer music! After a message from our sponsors...
Greetings, Gigaquadrant! I, Supreme Ambassador of JCute empire, speak on behalf of the JAlliance.
We are an alliance of five interstellar empires:
The JHerbivore empire, seekers of Harmony, founders of this very alliance and our spiritual guiders.
The JSlugger empire, brave explorers, and example of superation to us all.
The JCerberus empire, noble fighters, and the most trained fighting force of our alliance.
The JSluggerberus empire, protectors of nature and leaders of natural science.
And we, the JCute empire, dedicated negotiators and problem solvers.
United, we stand against the devious JHorde, that attack us since ancient times, first for the sake of robbing us and now for different beliefs! They are always keep his aggressions, inventing one motivation after another until we are destroyed!
We ask for help to any empire able to donate or trade anything to support us in our fight. Thank you all for your time and to listen to us.
Greetings, Gigaquadrant! I, the Holiest of JGrox empire, speak on behalf of the JHorde. Fear not, as we came in peace.
We are an union of five interstellar empires:
The JCarnivore empire, strong warriors, founders of this very union.

The JBot empire, evolved form of JSluggers, that don't fear test their limits.
The JMax empire, noble fighters, and the most trained fighting force of our horde.
And we, the JGrox empire, seekers of Faith. We achieve by Faith what our ancestors Grox could not.
United, we stand against the devious JAlliance, that harm us since ancient times, first letting our founders to poverty and now for being different from them! They will never accept progress, or even the right for our JBot and JMax hybrids to exist! They are always keep his aggressions, inventing one motivation after another until we are destroyed!
We ask for help to any empire able to donate or trade anything to support us in our fight. Thank you all for your time, and to listen to us.
Hello, Gigaquadrant! I, Tycoon JOmnivore, speak on behalf of the JOmnivore empire and our JCompany. And we are here to offer the best trades you all could ever know!
We can say for sure that there's no other Empire in this JSector that can compete with our levels of operational efficiency! We can bring everything our sector could offer right to your doorstep, in exchange of a few sporebucks that you can afford! We have all types and quantities of spices, domestic goods, mineral resources, all available from our facilities in JOmnivore systems!
Our best picks are the favorite vehicle of all JEmpires, the JSpaceship! This handsome multi-use, high-customizable space ship can be used to everything, since friendly travels in family to interstellar wars! Available in various models and sizes!

Greetings On behalf of the Board of Directors the Quadrantia HoloNet has sincere interest in reviewing your programs and if possible to broadcast them across the Quadrant Galaxies. To do so we should set up a contract for the financial part but the Quadrantia HoloNet is always eager to expand its programs and streaming services. -Quadrantia HoloNet-
JGoofy, Host of JMTV Greetings, dear Directors from Quadrantia HoloNet!
Sure, we from JMTV are always eager for new sponsors and partners too! We are sending our representatives to show you all our programation, so we can set up a contract for the financial part and all other stuff necessary (some JOmnivore consultants will be sent too, as they like such bureaucracy stuff more than us JGoofies).
If everything is OK, JMTV and Quadrantia HoloNet will be broadcasting both our programs to all our spectators!
JGoofy, Host of JMTV Hello, JMTV spectator!... hum, linguistic malfunction, you say? I am not sure if its can be our fault or not...
You see, here in JSector, all JEmpires speak the JLanguage, and I am speaking JLanguage right now. But according our tech guys, the broadcast utilizes a universal translator, so our spectators receives something understandable, even if you don't know the JLanguage.
So I can try to fix the translator right now and see if this solve the problem. Just give me a moment...
Testing, testing... nothing yet?... hum...
JTesting, jtesting... jops, jsomething jis jdifferent... jlet jme jadjust jit...
Testing, testing... hum, maybe it is OK now guys, thanks...
Sorry for the trouble spectator, the n... the tech guys said that the problem was that something in the code was "msg" when it was supposed to be "message", or something like that. I don't understood exactly, but the problem may be fixed right now.
If the problem persists, feel free to contact us again! That kind of stuff can happen all the time in live television, especially when aired first time.
Our translators have been translating your names and it seems like people in the JSector have a quite unique naming tradition, to say the least. Nevertheless, I welcome the inhabitants of the Sector, my name is President Somonthalle Nathilik. I am always interested in the entertainment of aliens, I'll be sure to tune into JMTV to see what the culture there is like.
JGoofy, Host of JMTV Hello, Lsjanpodos spectators! Yes, our JTraditions always catch the attention of everyone, inside and outside JSector!
If it's JEntertainment you want, you can always tune into JMTV! So, dear Miss President and Mister Grand Chief General, here's some JMusic for you all to enjoy!
Greetings, and hello from the Neipasians. Seeing how we've managed to improve our SETI signals and transmissions, we've decided to send this transmission out to all of you out here. We hope you have a better day than us.
Greetings to you too. Uh- nameless person. Interested in trade, or talking more about your empire?
Representative of UTON You're located in the Carina arm- is this not correct? With our wormhole warping abilities, we should be able to find a star closest to the signal you gave us. Some spice for simplicity?
Ipliq, Communications Director for the UROG Warping and wormhole travel sounds interesting. We'll send our trade ships on their way.
Greetings, Representative of the United Territories of the Neipasians, and welcome to the Gigaquadrant! I hope you will enjoy it here. I wish to introduce myself. I am Solosartok, Supreme Leader of The Tuechalton. I have the request of opening a Trade Route with you. We have plenty of Technology! So, would you be interested in a Trade Deal?
> Waiting for Response...
Representative of the UTON Considering your technological advances, we happily accept. Our tradeships will be on their way.
SOLOSARTOK, SUPREME LEADER OF THE TUECHALTON > Loading Response...
Wonderful. I'll make sure to get our ships Ready. Have a nice day!
Seeing as it is that we are more than enough welcomed into the gigaquadrant, I see why not to introduce ourselves further.
We're a- Cyborg-esque version of humans, evolved to survive in our steaming hot climate. Don't mistake us for groxologists, or anything like that. We're nothing of the sort. Uh- Basically, I'm the Chief Engineer for the establishment. All the way since 500 years ago.
That's all I have to say, so, otherwise, Goodbye.
Celeste Reges: The Right Honourable Primus Capiti of the United Empire of Solariea
Salutations. Welcome to the Gigaquadrant. We are always open for trade, so please contact us if you wish for such. As always with newcomers, we look towards healthy relations in the near future.
Representative and Chief Engineer of the UTON, Dr. Horosha We accept your trade offer.
Greetings, I am Overlord of Void Eye Empire, we welcome you to the Gigaquadrant. We want to ask you about creating a trade route. We can trade nearly everything, from technology and spice(black spice included), to resources and energy. So what do you think?
Representative and Chief Engineer of the UTON, Dr. Horosha We accept and would like to trade for some of your black spice.
Representative and Ambassador of the UFEP, Tyxripolias
Greetings. We're a relatively new empire located in the Carina Arm, and we are looking for trade to expand our military and technological might. We have a large stash of sporebucks in return for you.
Gottfried von Bouillon, 612th Monarch of the Tanikattos
Greetings, Tyxripolias! Are you implying that you want to trade? Because if so, we got you covered! We have most things that any Empire, from Fledgeling to half-million Systems, might need. Any Requests?
If you are going to be sending trade ships into our territory, then we WILL be checking them for any high-scale weaponry that could pose a threat to us. We're not taking any chances when they've already expanded to a space-faring empire in almost less than a year.
We have found your galaxy supercluster and we mean no harm.We broadcasted this message to your eight great galaxies.If you happen to intercept this message tell us your civilization's and your galaxy's name
I agree with Emperor Ipliq about the anonymity, as we are naturally distrustful of other spacefarers. We reside in the Cyrannus Galaxy. We may be interested in trade depending on what you have to offer.
IMPORTANT info for all the universes currently at war or planning to start or enter in one:
We,the scientific and political heads of Venomplanet are glad to announce the first ever Venomstone Interstellar Military and Heavy Equipment Show in Venomstone (VL), where you can get in touch with Hyperspace and our government's newest military equipment. exclusive models, deals and reveals only at VISHMES. contact us for further info
Jill Bright, CEO and Founder of Maxisoft Well, of course. What did you think kept the near 800 year wait? We had to research human anatomy and nearly every single detail of specimens on Earth, even those alien to us. Oh, and the cost to launch and make our own spaceship. Spore 2's creature editor will be 10x as more free, customizable, and life-like with photo-realistic textures and customizable animations.
If you are wondering if we are new to the cosmos, you are incorrect. My people have bugged me to set up communications with the xeno-life forms that inhabit this universe. Very well then. Allow us to introduce our glorious empire to you aliens.
I am Overlord Rein, current ruler of the Dimentosian Great Empire. We are mostly peaceful, but we are only peaceful because we know that entering war with another empire would only inconvenience us, so don't believe the lies that some of our citizens say about us being "cowards".
If one of you wishes to open up trade, then we shall. We don't have much in god-like technology, but we do have minerals and resources- along with servants, if anybody would wish for them.
