The End of a Hive

A set of multiple nuclear weapons went off and another shockwave struck.

In the depths of her fortress Ar'yay HiveQueen began getting reports of a full scale invasion. Bombs were going off along her entire holdings.  Millions dead in an instant.

Ar'yay HiveQueen felt the deaths of her children and her rage grew in power.

She reached out to her Hive gaining a complete focus of the battlefield from the eyes of her followers. She issued orders to her warriors, their main goal was not to stop the Da'uhnb attack but instead to save as many Horned Dog Cultists as they could.

As the last of the Horned Dogs escaped from Kyrpos to Ar'yay's holdings in Iron Republic space,  the Quall Warriors prepared for their final stand.

There were chambers of Flayers and Pit Mongrels hidden under the ground.

The bombs continued to go off and countless Quall Warriors died by nuclear fire, and Djinni-created explosives.

Then the Energy Bridges opened and the rest of the assault forces arrived.

The Horned Dog Cultists of Ar'yay would speak of this battle for the next thousand years until it became like a legend.

The Quall N’Drone were quite busy under the fire dome, they had been constructing statues dedicated to raced now extinct, the Drones did not quite understand why they were building these statues, the Queen felt it was important so they did it. She wasn’t quite the same anymore, she didn’t show herself very often and didn’t communicate with others much. Her voice remained in their heads whispering encouragement and calming words. A new future awaited them all, one far different than the one that most expected. The Hive was getting tired, that was the only word that was closest to explaining what was going on. Tired of the wars that didn’t matter to them, tired of being hunted for what others had done. They were tired of hypocrites talking down to all of them, tired of people who didn’t see them as living beings, each individual seen as nothing more than part of a whole. They had memories of their own, and more then that lives of their own. Their own interests, their own passions, their own desires, of course they put the Hive before themselves because that is what you did. You thought of others before you thought of yourself, if you had time after the needs of the many were taken care of then you could think of the one.

They were beginning to understand that those who hated them would never listen, they wouldn’t see reason. The ones hunting them were consumed by hate and nothing would cure them of it. As long as the Hive existed they would be hunted, more would die, more suffering. If nothing changed then their enemies would never stop and the Hive had no future, death would chase them and never cease.

So a new future was whispered into their ears, the idea was terrifying and many were shocked into silence. This new future was too drastic, too much, so much would have to be sacrificed. If they were to go shouldn’t they make their enemies pay in kind? No said the whispers, that would solve nothing, by meeting violence with violence is what got us in this situation, our enemies had no limit, their cloning tubes gave them limitless numbers and their production facilities pumped out a numberless amount of death bringing war machines. No matter how many enemies we could kill the Hive would simply grow smaller and smaller until it was no more.

The new future was so close, they heard the attack start, the Temporal Empire teleporting inside the Dome and deploying their weapons, millions of voices, millions of individual minds were snuffed out. The voices were vanishing rapidly, at this rate the entire Hive would be in danger, lost for no reason other than to feed the blood lust of the wicked.

These Da'uhnb could teleport wherever they want to and their nuclear weapons endanger all, look upon the mining operation of Director Sacrenine the radioactive fallout heads towards his people. These Da’uhnb do not care about killing those uninvolved with their rampage. They obviously don’t care who they kill in their attacks, we should see this as a lesson. We cannot sink to such blanket hatred, meeting such foes with violence would only endanger people innocent of crimes. We have tried so hard to become better then the revenging Hives, we are better than our enemies, we do not kill indiscriminately as they do. No, we have to do this, we have to start anew and show our enemies that they were the evil here. We need to show their enemies that they could have accomplished so much if they had just been open minded. No, their single minded hatred and foulness drove everything to the brink of doom and violence would only encourage them. They wanted any and every excuse to flaunt death and destruction and we would give them no more excuses.

The death toll was rising fast, if they were to make their new future it would have to be now, the Fleet above was barely holding the line against the invaders. Every single Quall designed ship was acting as the defense force. A bit over two thousand fighters flew overhead attempting to keep the enemy at bay, a combination of Neo Flayer Star-Fighters, and Quall Intercepters fought and died to delay the enemy forces. Twenty two Quall Light Frigates, nineteen Quall Destroyers, two Conflagros Cruisers and the remaining Motherships (with their raptors launched to aid in the air defenses) were ordered to delay the enemy long enough for the new future to arrive. So many brave souls were dying to Temporal Empire Sabotage and their allies’ weapons. Hive Queen Ar’Yay thanked them all for their bravery and spread her love throughout the Hive. Her sorrow at their deaths were felt by all, they knew how this hurt her so. Their final instructions were explained and while many didn’t like it they knew that doom awaited them anyway. Perhaps it would be better to sacrifice themselves so that others may live instead of all dying. After all, the needs of the many outweighed the needs of the few.

The new Dawn approached, the time was at hand, the future was now the present the Hive began to build up their will as one, it was now time.......

Week 8 Conquest Mission - Don't Talk about a Da'uhnb's Mamma / The End of a Hive  Empty Re: Week 8 Conquest Mission - Don't Talk about a Da'uhnb's Mamma / The End of a Hive

Post  TemporalEmpire on Thu Jul 14, 2011 2:06 am

9 Clean Bombs, 90 Nuclear devices, and 8,901 conventionl explosives all deployed to eliminate all Hive warriors of Aryays Hive only.

Xec Cex, former interdimensional hero, would now be a mass murder, even by the standards of the Temporal Empire.

It was the civil war that allowed it to happen. The Temporal Enforcement Agency were too busy tracking G.A.S.T. members to be notice Xec moving until it was too late.

In Xecs plan Two Da'uhnb had no other job than keeping Ar'yay HiveQueen alive. She would be Xec's personal message to all the HiveQueens. Enter Da'uhnb territory illegally and you lose everything.
The last time the Quall had set foot in the Da'uhnb territory with violent intent had been the Kias Wars and it had ended with the capture of the Da'uhnb Queen.

No excuse was acceptable, to Xec Cex. First they say we are hiding a weapon of mass destruction and attack our citizens, then they will try and take our Queen again, he thought in his deep and abiding fear.

As the deathtoll mounted, he knew he would be considered a criminal by his own people.

His final teleport was to the beginning of time to watch it, one last time.

Then he returned to his own Da'uhnb Queen, whose fury would be great.

In the grand hall of the Da'uhnb Queen Xec Cex was bound in heavy chains tied to a pair of burley soldiers. Xec fell to his knees before his Queen saying, "No Quall will dare threaten us for another thousand years."

The Da'uhnb Queen nodded her shadowy form. Then her claw extended and pierced his chest. The Da'uhnb gasped for breath.

Her shadowy jaws extended and snapped him up in a single bite.

"I do not condone mass murder," whispered the sibilant voices of the Da'uhnb Queen, "We are older than ALL species in this reality except the Ancient Evils. You, my Da'uhnb Warriors, are older than the Quall N'Drone, and must be wiser or share the punishment of Xec Cex. His actions made him nothing better than a fiend of Warmonger and I consumed him accordingly even if he was my child like all Da'uhnb."

"Send a message to G.A.S.T. this civil war must end," said the Queen of the Da'uhnb, "lest we all become as twisted by hate as Xec Cex, warning for all."

The Da'uhnb Queen was quiet then said, "Send a message to Ar'yay HiveQueen. Tell her this war between our people ends today. No mother should have to watch her children die, no matter her species."

Week 8 Conquest Mission - Don't Talk about a Da'uhnb's Mamma / The End of a Hive  Empty Re: Week 8 Conquest Mission - Don't Talk about a Da'uhnb's Mamma / The End of a Hive

Garmin knew the plan laid out by Xec Cex was a damnable one. It become clear to him at some point that this was wholly against the wishes of the Da'unhb Queen, a being he had remained loyal to since he salvaged her from the clutches of the Quall.

Garmin knew that Xec Cex would be taken before the conflict was over. His judgement would be swift and Garmin knew what was being asked. Xec Cex would start things, and he dearly hoped that Beacon City and the Pirates of Captain Fleshstealer would help him finish what he started, the last thing he would ever start. Xec Cex was bestowing his last wishes with his invitation, though he would never dare to say it like that out load.

To strike fear into the Quall, to protect his people from future implantations, to protect the Da'unhb Queen, and to serve a hero's dying wish was enough reason for Garmin Fe, Protectorate General of Beacon City, to finalize the attack.

"I'm off to prepare my forces. Later, Xec. We'll catch a drink when this is all over," a hollow goodbye filled with wishful thinking. Garmin Fe walked away with a terrible sadness within his frozen heart.

[After the dust settles, the floating island, The Continent of Dead Quall, will utilize its secret improvements to teleport it directly over A'ryay's holdings. Quall Hunters with Little Nipper pets (gifted to Beacon City from Olefera) will hunt down the remaining survivors. The continent will begin to hang low and expose those below it to the Quall killing effects of the Frost Generators and Surge Platforms. 22 Armigers, capitol ships designed to fight the Quall in Kry'pos will flank the continent and help to deliver the final blows.]

[Some care will be taken to protect the holdings of Orleos Sacrenine from bombardment.]

[Expending Quest Reward: A Masterful Plan Comes Together (+1 to all my troops)]

Later that week...

Garmin Fe was tired. His spirit wasn't quite what it was just months before. He warily made his way to his quarters, reshaping the walls that led to where he slept. Then his eye caught the image of a familiar Da'unhb warrior. He at first was convinced it was his imagination, but his eyes refused to concede to the thought. There, sitting on a stool next to his modest bar was Xec Cex. He smiled at Garmin and said, "So tell me, how did it go?"

Garmin raises a smile back, lends a manly hung, pours the warrior a drink, and begins to tell the tale of the last of a faithful hive.

"Aye Xec, I'll hunt them to the last ship. After Mister Maehls' generous gift i'll be commiting all my availible forces to this."

As he looked upon the others in the room he sensed the tense atmosphere. He stood and left without another word to prepare his men.

As he reached his ship he started to decide on formations of troops. He hoped most of his men would come back. Even as pirates go he was ruthless but his men were his and he respected them all.

"Captain Ciryl, i'm on my way to tapesrty personally to discuss things with the others. I have a mission for you. Your going to take the fleet to Krypos and assist in the assult. focus on the aircraft." was the message sent.

-300 stilettos set in in 3 waves 100 cudgels in a fourth wave. 100 machetes sent in attack runs on capital ships.
-200 recyclers set after capital ships aiming for bridges when able. after all capitals are disabled will try to support starfighters.

Post  OrleosSacrenine on Fri Jul 15, 2011 3:35 pm

Foreman Alnica Zornic could only regard the 'guests' that had arrived at her facility with what could be considered thinly veiled annoyance. The prisoner transfer has been one thing, it caused a scene that made the employees become dumbstruck with awe at the foreign men from Garmin Fe's ships and the Quall from Hive Queen Le-a's. While she could stand having the spectacle in her front yard, she could not stand the invasive inspection that occurred afterwards. To think that she would run operations of treachery and deception was laughable, she ran a tight ship as per the Directors orders, and her wrath upon slackers was near legendary.

If the inspection was considered annoying, then Alnica didn't have a word for the conflict that followed. She looked out upon the chaos that was looming upon the facilities doorstep and took two pills to calm the migraine that was currently raging in her head. Orders had already been received from the Director concerning evacuation procedures. The Generals and Le-a's men had already been evacuated and she'd be lying if she said she didn't envy them, but she had her orders. The men unladen with equipment were to be sent via Energy Brides to a safe location provided by Ar'yay's children and the others were to be sent via Freighter supplied by the resident Hive Queen, and any Quall that were ordered to depart with them were to be treated with sincerity and brought aboard in utmost secrecy.

Perhaps she should just say damn it all and retire already, but she had a job to do that paid to well, and while being in the face of a nuclear holocaust was most unpleasant, it meant that she could now get out of this hell hole. Turning her back on the scene she made her way to the docking station and boarded a ship. This place would most definitely not be missed once this all was over. Perhaps her next assignment would send her to Casablanca Station? She hoped so, it would be a definite improvement.

(OoC: 10 Freighters were given for use of evacuation. If any Quall ordered by Ar'yay depart they will be put out of sight in the cargo hold and the freighters will make there way to Sacrenine Fine Arts where a docking station will be cleared of all unauthorized personnel. All the Freighters will depart from the facility and be sending out an Identification Signal, marking them as friendly non-hostiles and broadcasting who they belong to.)

Week 8 Conquest Mission - Don't Talk about a Da'uhnb's Mamma / The End of a Hive  Empty Re: Week 8 Conquest Mission - Don't Talk about a Da'uhnb's Mamma / The End of a Hive

Post  Ar'yayhivequeen on Fri Jul 15, 2011 5:21 pm

The attack came and there was chaos everywhere, Ar'Yay Hive Queen gave instructions to her children who were defending the mining site. Their job was to make sure the director's people got on the transports that were provided in order to make sure that they weren't caught up in the attack, Those Quall would attempt to manipulate the flame of the explosions and channel them away from the civilians. Once the civilans are away those Quall would retreat back to the main island and join with the ritual.

The statues to the extinct species were destroyed in the explosions, and the artistic walls and statues blew apart in the nuclear devastation. The fleet was torn apart ship by ship, doing their best to disable first but if they had no choice destroy enemy ships.

Hive Queen Ar'Yay sat on her obsidian throne, watching through the minds of her children as they attempted to buy time for the change. They had to make sure that things went right, many of their people were being lost and if they waited too much longer all would be lost.

So the Hive Queen gave the command and all the Quall were to disengage and to begin the sacrifice, They turned the layas inward towards themselves and their energy was reshaped and was sent over to the target, all the Quall N'Drone in the Hive did this including their Hive Queen Ar'yay. After all what kind of sacrifice would it be if the Queen wasn't apart of it. The attackers tried to interfere but the nature of the sacrifice prevented them from stopping it in time.

The energy was sent to the Horned Dog cultists that were connected to the Hive Queen and changed them. Their larva was changed, it was no longer Quall but something brand new. The Prelate's new larva matured but he wasn't consumed and there was no Quall born. Instead the two merged together and he grew, a new set of arms and a single Horn sprouted from his head. He retained his human appearance but with those new features. A brand new group consciousness was born around him but with limitations. He wasn't able to manipulate those connected to him so he wouldn't be able to harm them or force them to do his will.
He also lacked the affinity for fire leyas that the Quall possessed but they gained the potential to gain access to more types of Leyas.

They would lose the massive storehouse of knowledge of the Quall but they knew that they could start new with their current knowledge they could spend their lives helping others and learning new things. Different things that didn't focus on the destruction of others.

The most important change was the spread of their larva. A sack was formed in the midsection of the Prelate and he could embrace another and spread the larva through their stomach into others. However the larva could not control the new host, nor could it mature on its own. The Host would have to willing and give permission to the larva to mature an initiate the change. The larva would offer the knowledge of the Hive and the potential of greater mastery of the leyas in exchange for being able to dwell within the Host. Not as powerful as the Quall larva this one could not stop aging but would help prevent disease.

This change happened to all of the Hive that was connected to Ar'yay, no other Hive would be affected.

These men and women were no longer part of the Horned Dog, that was in the past, the future had arrived, a new day had arrived. So it made sense that their church took on a new name. From now on they were part of the Church of Dawn's New Light.
A new future awaited these men and women, a new day and they would break away from their past of violence and conquer to show the universe that there was reason to hope.

With the last bit of energy Hive Queen Ar'Yay used it on the flayers and pit mongrels who were protected in the underground shelters. This power was used to change them back to their true forms. Olgogs and Agelis were reborn with this thought in their heads. "I am sorry, with my death I release you from your torment and bondage, I only hope that with my death I can repay even the tinniest bit of what is owed to you."

When the sacrifice was completed the Quall N'Drone were gone, their ships fell to the earth with no one piloting them as their Flayer and Mongrel crew members had already been evacuated and they were solely crewed by Quall. An erie quiet fell upon the battlefield as the attackers stared in confusion trying to figure out what just happened.

(Out of Character- I am still having trouble with the name of the new species, I will do my best to think of one and then PM it to the Admin, thank you everyone who helped make this possible)

Now for everyone's gift a BUNNY! albino
