ECW Pack
While it is not the best idea to put ECW gear on mech, there are many cases where one of these on an assault mech can go a long way.Assault mechs are the only ones that can carry these as their size is to big for lesser mechs. Go to Comment

Kind of reminds me of "The Sparrow" by Mary Doria Russell. They too use asteroids as long-voyage interstellar vessels. Go to Comment

Potemkin Forts

The Potemkin Fort is a military installation that is high profile, and apparent very high value of some sort.

This is a patent falsehood, and the Potemkin Fort is an actor. It draws the attention of foreign powers, and is the subject of espionage and in a wartime scenario is one of the first targets for destruction. To this end, the fort is a 'Honey Pot' designed to draw in and waste enemy assets and resources, or it is a pure decoy. By attacking the Potemkin fort, a real installation is spared destruction. This gives defenders time to rally and strike back, or even use the fort as an ambush point

During the Resource Wars, the United States had a clandestine research facility in the Aleutian Islands that was involved in beam and high energy weapons research. Fort Jericho was known by several world powers, and when the combined Russian and Chinese strike force attacked the island in their Operation Dzhakuzi, Whirlpool, they were destroyed. Jericho housed a Directed Energy Weapon, and when the task force attacked, the remotely controlled facility activated, and fired the weapon. Over a dozen warships were sunk and tens of thousands of red troops were killed. The loss was such that there was not another serious attempt on the American west coast.

Scrasamax's comment on 2018-02-08 11:17 AM
it isn't. That is what spurred the Washington Treaty, where the five leading naval powers all signed to restrict the number of warships they have in service, as well as putting tonnage caps on the existing ship classes, like limiting cruisers to 10,000 tons, and so forth. There was a very serious concern that the rate of ship construction could trigger a economy crisis for the world. Go to Comment

Wet Faeries

       By: Murometz

Sages and naturalists frown at the common name given to these strange creatures by the small folk, but sometimes the silliest nicknames for creatures, places and people persevere in the minds of many. “Purifiers”, “Pond Jellies”, “Breath-Stealers”, “Lung-Ticklers” and “River Butterflies” are much less commonly heard appellations for these life forms. Wet Faeries are basically (and simply) a species of fist-sized, fresh-water jellyfish. Several traits steer them toward the peculiar category however. Firstly, Wet Faeries are nearly invisible in the water, much like their marine cousins but even more so. One can swim in a river swarming with these critters and not even notice their presence. Secondly, they possess the unique ability to clean and purify whatever body of water they inhabit. They do this via some sort of biological filtration process, sucking in all toxins present in the water, and releasing it back in its purest form. Needless to say, they are both a blessing and a curse to whichever folk dwell beside the rivers and lakes Wet Faeries inhabit. On one hand, no purer water can be found anywhere than a Wet Faerie lake or pond, and yet, in “pure” water “life” tends in fact to die out, lacking the needed nutrients to prosper. Thirdly, their “sting” is (unfortunately) virulently poisonous to all mammalians. Wet Faeries are loathe to sting anyone or anything, using their barbed fronds as a last line of defense, but if stung, most swimmers will suffer respiratory arrest, and die within minutes, usually drowning before they can make it back to shore.

Alchemists, druids, and less savory characters have studied these creatures over the years, and have predictably found all the ways Wet Faeries could be exploited. Morbidly humorous, some bards find it, that the Poisoners and Assassins Guilds as well as the Healer’s Union, all prize these creatures. The assassins use the extracted venom in obvious fashion, while the priests and healers use the still-living jelly-fish to sterilize other poison potions and to cure those already poisoned on death’s door.

It is known that a certain Earl Von Trumble keeps his vast castle moat stocked with Wet Faeries, the waters so clear that every bone of every one of his past enemies can be clearly seen on the bottom, twenty two feet below.
