Legends and Gods from the land of Delarvi (Delarvi = Earth)

The gods and goddessess are based on a mix of ancient greek, egyptian, and other myths.


Gragg the Wyrm - The God of greed for power, money, lust etc.  He is said to be maid in the form of a giant sand.  That was lage enough to to swallow an entire town.

Anubus - An ancient human God of death, ruler of hell.  In the time before, he was prince under the God of Gods Zeus.  Anubus and his Father, Zeus, waged a war against eachother for control of the Heavens.  At the last battle where Zeus and Anubus were forced to do combat.  Upon defeating Anubus Zeus could not bring himself to slay his own son.  So Anubus was banished under the earth to be imprisoned in giant world of his own.  

Zeus - The God of Lighting, Absolute Power, and the Monarchy.  Zeus is the omnipresent, omnipowerful God.  He is the God for rulers, and holds the values of justice and honor close to him. Is the ruler of heaven.

Athena - The Goddess of Wisdom, Expolration and Bravery.  It is said that explorers offer sacrifices to her for safe passage on their journies and the wisdom to make the right decisions to survive in a new world.

Nephodora - The Goddess of hard work, and wit.  The Goddess of the educated, the scientist, the thinker, the dreamer.  God a good idea, need a boost?  This is your Goddess, she considers herself above conflict, so warriors are often her enemies.  Hard work and intelect and wit are worth more than any brave deed.


Dax - The God of Rebellion, the God of Anarchy and confusion and oppression.  The God that plays both sides against the middle also a God that repsects wit, but holds cleverness and trickery in even more high reguard.

For your enlightenment, that's Anubis, not Anubus. But I don't want to nit-pick. Forget I even said anything.

INFANTRY

Drow: Drow Infantry, are based on speed, power, and heavy armor, supported by melee weapons.  The typical Drow Infantry carries a Energy Magic Sword, Energy Grenades, and smaller versions of the Death Rider main cannon.  The Drow also utilize a second class of infantry as egineers, specilists and medics.  This second class carries higher tech weapons, and armor, but less brute physical strength and uses more tactics.  Some common gear among these soldiers are crystalmancing equipment, Pistol type energy cannons.  Powerful explosive charges, we believe these use chemicals.  Also they sometimes carry deployable shield generators they use to protect strategicaly valuable positions.
The Melee Class are codenamed Brutes
The Tactical Class are codenamed Egineers


Humans: Human Infantry uses a wide style of long range weapons and rapid fire to supress and take out enemies before they can close with them.  Most humans are physicaly weaker than other species this lead to genetic egineering and research into possible bioegineering of advanced muscle tissue.  This class of warrios are very rare to create one can run up into the billions of Rotes(Dollars). But these warrios are equiped with near invincible armor have been tecticaly trained since they were children. They are the peak of combat soldiery.  
Normal infantry are Grunts
BioEgineered warrrios are Irregualrs

Just a couple issues with your numbers that you may want to address. I confess I skimmed most of the last page, so if you did address these, I apologize, however, you may want to think a couple of things over. Given the massive detail you are going into, I thought some minor retooling wouldn't be a huge issue.

A) The Terran Empire only has 1,200,000,000 people? That really isn't that many, considering that the current population of Terra is in excess of 6,000,000,000... Is this because of a recent war? Population Control? Emigration?

B) If 1lb of Krana generates 100 kilowatts (By which I assume you meant kW hours, if you didn't, I apologize),  you could use all that energy relatively quickly. If you were to hook up 10 100 watt bulbs, and run them for about four days, you would have used all of the energy...

sorry but nitouken is right on both accounts
i also just skimmed
the population would not only be large but huge if you want the pop to be that low there would need to have been a major cataclysm against the terans

i happen to be an engineer

100kwh is hardly any energy at allagain it depends on how much energy electronics use at this time "remember as technology grows and things become smaller they take less energy to run"

oops lol

sorry for the blooper ill fix it.

on the energy, im no egineer ok, i guess i messed up on all the details to in regards

terran population is 12 billion or 12, 000, 000, 000 and a 6 billion man army.

as for power im not going to get technicalities

roughly a Krana Reactor Plant or four krana reactors can power a large city and the surronding area.

Woo, big army. :)

You are probably looking at 10-30 tW/h (Terawatt hours, something on the order of 10^15) at that level of technology

Quick physics lesson... Roughly...double a 3 dimensional object's size, multiply its mass by a factor of 8.  It is called the Cube Square law.  A planet four times earth size should weigh 64 times as much, if it made of the same basic materials... carbon... silicon... iron.  The gravity would be approximately 64G.  

So if the planet is 4 times lager than Earth with the same gravity, it must have 1/64th the density of Earth .  In short you have a ball of gas (a mix of hydrogen and helium) and approximately 3 meter diameter rock at the center, as the planet's density is too light to be solid, in a 1au (approximately earth distance) orbit.  It would have to have a massive electrical field to hold such gas together against the solar winds.  If the gas got much colder, les say where Mars is or just a bit beyond, it would collapse into a liquid planetoid but be of a mass about the size of Earth.  

(Note my math may be a bit off, but it is approximate.)

I am not Mr. Science Wizard, I just watch some PBS and Learning Channel. I read some light science fiction.  

If you are going to write science fiction, you need to know science.  If you are going to write science fantasy, you need to know some science.  I am not suggesting reading hundreds of books and becoming an expert. I am suggesting you at least learn a little bit about what you want to talk about, so you do not make a total bogus mess and lose the critical versimilitude you need for any game world.  

You can hit the NASA site for good info and a few other links. This will give an idea about planets and planetary objects without failing some reality checks.  (I may not be Mr. Space Science, but My Google Fu is strong.)

Oh and Get a 2004 Almanac. You can get a crash course in astronomy and planetology in about 20 pages.

Of course, bending the rules a little bit never hurts, but when you're so WAY far-out like you are, Luke, well then, MoonHunter must step in.

It is BAD science fantasy.  It is the kind of drek that most people look at, shake their head, and move on.  You have a great idea. I would hate to see it lost or unused because of stupid and easily correctable errors.

Ishtarix(Drow) Magna Crystals
 
This is belived to be the responsible for the leaps seen in Ishtarix technology over the past ten years, since the discovery of the gate. On one of the worlds explored by the Ishtarix they happened apon runes of ancient extinct civilizations.  Formations of crystals were found in everything, they emitted a strong energy radiation that was not harmful to life but could be harnessed by converters and transformed into power for magic, shields, weapons, space travel anything.  The TIA believes that some how Ishtarix figured out to how to work the technology.  Whether through decipherment or happening on a cache the TIA has had trouble in swaying information from any Drow informents on this subject.  Apparently the Ishtarix own counterinsurgency unit the Watch has become extremely paranoid and cracked down on information leaks.

Murliko - The second and largest, most powerful colony on Vega Prime, its a mineral rich world with large rolling plains with mineral deposits in large crystal formations that can be easilly harvested and processed.  A few large corperations have their corperate bases there.  Rumors have spread some even have their own private armies.

Crescent - A small missionary devoted to the Goddess Athena


Teotechwanen - The first colony set up by travel through the Hypergate, scientists believe it is almost some 45,000 light years from Higara.

Gnomes
Population: 5-7 Million
Population Centers: None really, Gnomes are mostly wanders.  There are very few large popluations centers in Gnome Terrortory.  Because of this they have no firm government, and often pay resepects to no lord but themselves.  Also there is much confusion about Gnome terrortory it has no names expect for specific land marks the whole region is merely termed Gnome Terrortory, and is considered neutral.  

Thus any government organized parties do not exist.  But several private organizations and mercenary regiments exists many times in the past years countries have been smashed when they have tried to assualt Gnome Terrortory odd but in times of crisis Gnomes will often unite against a common foe.  

Suspected Mercenary Regiments: 12-16

Private Corperations:
Power-G; A krana power company
Explorer Corps; Coorperation responsible for discovery of the Hypergate
StarHammer: A cooperation that focuses on starship construction.
