[i]The Slavoni race first left their home not because of dreams of conquest or war…but because their planet was doomed, pollution caused by the Slavoni nearly had left their home un-inhabitable, so they took to the stars and began to colonize far throughout the galaxy. And while they were peaceful at first, their warlike culture could not hold itself back and soon they began taking worlds by force and massively expanding their territory.
However, they were no where near united and for many years the different factions within the Slavoni empire fought for control, and eventually there was a victor and from that the Slavoni Imperium was formed. A more unified government system was established and production of warships went into overdrive along with recruitment and soon their expansion began once more. The Imperium then came into contact with the Archae A race of arachnids who also had a sizable territory. The Slavoni made the horrible mistake of attacking the Archae and a great war was started, however the Slavoni stood no chance against the Archae and their strange capabilities.
The Slavoni soon realized if they did not act quickly are their years of work would be destroyed, so they created a weapon known as ‘The Eviscerator’ With this they destroyed the Archae’s ‘Mother’. They then had to spend many years rebuilding what they had lost, however they now had a weapon of mass destruction…and were nearly unstoppable…[/i]
The Slovoni are a large humanoid lizard/salamander race. They average a height of 6’ 7". Slavoni have claws on their hands and feet, making them very capable in melee combat even without a weapon. Slavoni also have very sharp teeth and are carnivores, eating only meat. Slavoni are also able to breath underwater, their only Salamander like quality. This is very useful to them as their home planet is considerably more water then Earth. Slavoni also live longer then humans, partially thanks to their advanced medical technology, with the average Slavoni lifespan being 167 years old, however most Slavoni only live to be on average 32 as many die in battle.
The Slavoni are fierce warriors, and have not care for the lives of their soldiers…only that they achieve victory. From a young age Slavoni are taught that to die in battle is the greatest honor anyone can achieve, while dying of old age is considered somewhat dishonorable. Because of this Slavoni soldiers do not fear death and will gladly face a force larger then their own, knowing that if they win they will have done a great honor, and if they lose they have also achieved great honor. Surrender is considered the ultimate dishonor, and those who do so and return to the Slavoni at some point are tortured for many years until they die from it or until they die of old age. The Slavoni culture also has similarities to Ancient Greeks.
Slavoni soldiers wield large round shields-similar to those used by ancient greek hoplites-and Energy Spears that are able to pierce even some light ship armor. They also will commonly be equipped with sidearms, however Slavoni soldier value the fear instilled in their enemies when the charge forth into fire not wavering in the slightest. Slavoni Shields are resistant to energy weapons and are very good against melee weapons. The armor soldiers wear is also similar to ancient greek soldiers, and like the shields is hard to damage with weapons of any kind. [/i]
And now onto the thing everyone came for…
The Slavoni Navy is focused on heavy hitting and some more un-orthodox strategies. For instance their ‘Aspída’ Type ships:
The Apsis Frigate and Aegis Cruiser are both designed to be a the front of the fleet with quite alot of armor, however to save weight the hull is not very strong so once the armor is down the ship will go soon with it. These ships protect the other, far better armed ships that will do the damage to the enemy fleet. These ships commonly are destroyed.
Bridging the gap between these ships and the conventional ships is the Corinth Heavy Frigate:
This ship has stronger armor then the average ship, however it does not have the weaker hull of the Aspida type ships. It also has very powerful engines to give it a speed advantage over other ships. However despite these advantages is fares quite poorly in space combat and is commonly used to support ground forces thanks to its ability to fly in atmosphere.
The Conventional ships make the brunt of the Slavoni navy:
These ships are focused on having great firepower at the cost of speed and mobility, and they are able in most cases to take out equivalent ships of other races.[/i]
That concludes the current stuff for this race, I plan on making more things for it and probably will post pictures of some of the new stuff when I’ve got it ready.
More Corvettes and Fighters
Civilian ships, mainly for Scenarios. (Raiding merchant ship missions or something similar.)
