    I wonder....is it cool if we embed youtube videos with songs during combat scenes (space, air, hand-to-hand, lightsabers, etc?) I feel it might be pretty cool for the readers to play the song put in the first post of a fight and listen while scrolling down and reading the progression of the fight. Just a thought.

    That's an interesting idea. :)

    Only problem is it makes it difficult to read/respond with some ISPs.

    Internet Service Providers. :)

    I know my Internet gets a lot of lag when more than 2 embedded videos are on a page.

    Ah I see....well maybe only limit a max of 2 videos per page?

    Perhaps. And we could always alternate whom is posting music on each page. :)

    Or maybe have the participants in a fight decide on a song and just post that song once, so that the participants writing out their posts won't have to worry about embedding a video, and hopefully the amount of posts involved in the fight would create a new page, allowing another fight to post a song on that page. or something like that?

    Why not just link a video/music instead of embedding it?

    Some browsers can't run a video while you're in another tab.

    Not that big. I think it was...150 systems? I'd have to check, but there is plenty of space in the UR. They don't control even half of it.

    I was kidding.

    But they're aware of a lot of the rest of it.

    What the Hapan's used on the Vong ships? I was wondering if you were going to have me do that, or think it up on your own.

    Either way. I gave it to your party since you are the smallest one.

    I've already got an idea forming. Just surfing the Wook making sure it would work. And it even fits the way I have Abydos set up too! :p

    I decided on this:

    http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Mass-driver_cannon

    For the 'secret weapon'. SW shields are made up of two segments. One, Ray Shields, protect against energy weapons like turbolasers. The other, Particle Shields, protect against physical impacts. The problem with that though, is that the ray shields (understandably) get the vast majority of the power. Particle Shields are only normally used to deflect asteroids and the like. Get a sufficiently large rail-gun or coil-gun (or MAC if you like Halo), and it would bypass the ray shields, and punch clean through the weaker particle shield. Making it look like your shields are being 'magically' penetrated. The irony is that I already stuck a coil-gun on one of my ships (the Temple City class corvette, pictured below)

    It also fits Abydos, since they are making things up by scratch, and a weapon that is simple, cheap, and able to pierce shields so well would be VERY appealing.

    30 member worlds but thousands of systems within their auspices... But Chiss space is probably in the midst of a tremendous recovery from the Shadow War. I'd place Abydos in the top right if the UR. A lot of fanfics have defined space around Sekot's current location... And the territory between Reecee and Yaga Minor is pretty detailed now.

    Oh, and another advantage...it would fit Chewies post. Since its just a big hunk of metal being shot out a cannon, a MAC (yes, I'm lazy and just using that name :p ) shell would be invisible, or at least hard to spot in a mass of turbolaser fire. Nice sneak attack weapon this makes :p
