History of the Concordiat

It was the year 3260 AD, and humanity had expanded at an incredible pace. Six hundred worlds were now property of the human race, united for the first time. Ruled by the Concordiat of Man, the species that had gone from horse-drawn carriages to atomic rockets in the span of a century had gone even further.

Humanity hadn't done it alone, though. For wherever the human race went, they found enemies. And enemies were something that humans knew very well about, having had plenty of them back on Earth. So, they called upon their best - their wisest, and their strongest, and unleashed them upon their enemies.

Though none knew it at the time, this would be the beginning of a great many things, as well as an end. Alien eyes, organic or synthetic, slit pupil or round, gazed upon the Concordiat and set their plans in motion.

And the Concordiat was struck by surprise, unaware, and before they could react, its entire space was reeling from massive co-ordinated attacks across its entire frontier. The enemy ruthlessly plowed into the most sacred places of the Concordiat, destroying billions of lives and threatening man’s very existence.    


Founding History

The Concordiat was founded after the Third World War, but after recovery and after spaceflight had been achieved (2076 AD). It has been the primary human government for nearly eleven hundred years, though some small breakaway nations do exist. It rules over five hundred colonies from the capital city of Montreal, Earth.

The Concordiat evolved quicky in order to survive.  Contact was made with several alien races that turned out to be at best untrustworthy and at the worst deadly enemies.  The Deng, Quern and Melaconians are three prime examples, with the Deng being the worst of them. Four hard and bloody wars against the Deng have been waged, with territory fluctuating wildly.


The Concordiat has a four-branched government. Three of the branches are the legislative, executive, and judicial branches with the Military forming the fourth due to its importance in keeping the Concordiat whole. The military branch is responsible for human colonization, weapons research and design, and of course, all military movements.



Concordiat naval doctrine focuses on heavy armor and weaponry, while relying less on rapid, agile maneuvering. Destroyers, dreadnoughts and superdreadnoughts pound their foes into oblivion with hellbores, kinetics and a variety of other energy weapons.


FTL - Faster than Light Drive

The Concordiat is a millennium-long veteran of the spaceways. Their FTL drives, are well proven technology that gives an advantage of quick charge time compared to their enemies.



Hell-type weapons are terrifying weapons of unbelievable destructive power, as is befitting their name. A ten-centimeter hellbore can have the same destructive force as the bomb dropped on Hiroshima, and most hellbore-equipped machines tend to mount them in sizes and numbers many times that. A single 90 centimeter hellbore cannon is capable of putting out two to two-and-a-half megatons worth of firepower every second, with a recharge time of four seconds.

Hellbores and their larger cousins, the hellrails, use slivers of highly-pressurized frozen deuterium which, when fired, are ignited (by a laser) in a fusion reaction. The resulting bolt is contained and directed using strong magnetic fields in the breech and barrel. The resulting plasma travels at a considerable fraction of light speed and is not affected by planetary gravity. However, since the hellbore was designed as naval armament for Concordiat warships, modifications had to be made to avoid losing a significant portion of the shot's energy to atmospheric attenuation. To this end, a fraction of a second prior to deuterium detonation, a laser is fired along the path of the bolt to create a momentary vacuum. Concordiat ships are capable of internally manufacturing hellbore rounds, using water as a raw material, whereby the deuterium isotope of hydrogen is separated and cooled cryogenically into splinters of frozen hydrogen.


Battle Screens

Battle Screens or "Mono-permeable Anti-Kinetic Battlescreens" as they are officially known, are a type of force field, are disruptor field of likely EM energy that shreds anything solid to plasma wash.. The only way to destroy a battlescreen is if the screen gets turned off, or is destroyed. Because many enemies of the Concordiat have since begun using a variety of weapons, including direct energy weapons and kinetic energy weapons,  Concordiat designers have had centuries to create and modify armor designs to be extremely capable of handling energy weapon shots, meaning that shooting a battlescreen with a direct energy weapon is not a guaranteed deactivation.
