[OOC] The UYDF and you - a primer for F7 (WIP)



So, you've clicked on the big shiny button, probably because you're getting ready to type up a response in some sort of F7 war thread. This dispatch is designed to help you do just that, without having to navigate through the entirety of my labyrinthine defense factbooks. Just see which category your nation fits into best of all, and see what threats from us you'll be most likely to face!

As a sidenote - if we're at war with you, it's probably because you attacked us. Yeglan doctrine is retaliatory in nature - we tend to not declare wars on anyone unless they strike first.

This factbook may or may not be a blatant ripoff of Synne Industries' sig


Low Threat

If your armed forces happen to match most (or all) of the following:

  • PT (Past Tech)

  • Early MT (Modern Tech)

  • >1 million active soldiers

  • Non-magical

  • Non-spacefaring

Then you can probably expect:

  • An attempt at the total destruction of your navy.

  • Naval bombardment of all your cities from a safe distance (if said cities are within a few hundred kilometers of the coast).

  • A naval invasion using regular, non-thaumic troops.

  • Limited deployment of SPUs, mostly for the purposes of recon and intelligence gathering.

  • No spooky superweapons or WMD use.


Medium Threat

If your armed forces happen to match most (or all) of the following:

  • Late MT (Modern Tech)

  • PMT (Post-Modern Tech)

  • Early FT (Future Tech)

  • >1 billion active soldiers

  • Non-possessive of superweapons

  • Non-FTL

  • On the same planet

Then you can probably expect:

  • An attempt at the crippling or potentially destruction of your navy.

  • An attempt at the destruction of any orbital assets you may have, by means of anti-satellite missiles and the Vedogon Network.

  • Naval bombardment of all your cities from a safe distance (if said cities are within a few hundred kilometers of the coast).

  • A naval invasion using all standard troop specializations, in some capacity.

  • Standard deployment of various SPUs, depending on circumstance.

  • No spooky superweapons, unless you really back us into a corner, in which case we might orbitally bombard you with the Vedogon Network. We may also deploy WMDs, though only if pressed to do so.


High Threat

If your armed forces happen to match most (or all) of the following:

  • FT (Future Tech)

  • <1 billion active soldiers

  • Not on the same planet

Then you can probably expect:


Very High Threat

If your armed forces happen to match most (or all) of the following:

  • FT (Future Tech)

  • FFT (Far Future Tech)

  • FanT (Fantasy Tech) that is sufficiently advanced to be considered equal to either of the above

  • A number of active soldiers high enough to require usage of standard notation for the sake of convenience

  • Not on the same planet

  • Superweapons

  • Big space fleet

  • Powerful magic

Then you can probably expect:


Stupidly High Threat

If your armed forces happen to match most (or all) of the following:

  • All of the above

  • A fundamental misunderstanding of scale

  • Weapons that fire any of the following:

    • Stars

    • Planets

    • Black holes

    • White holes

    • Any sort of stellar body, really

    • Dark matter

    • Dark energy

    • "Super pwoerflu lazers taht can destory whole galecksy"

  • Literal gods

Then you can probably expect:


If your nation fails to fit any of the above, or is a weird mishmash of categories... then I'm sorry to say you'll have to actually read through the factbooks. 'Tis a sad truth.
