The New Emperor

The Magic SOB forum is for posts of story sequences that are frequently vignette-based. Put those here while actual battle reports can go in Reports From the Field.
You must talk like James T. Kirk in this forum at all times. Leonard Nimoy is fine too.

The New Emperor

Post by ninja_bait » Fri Mar 27, 2020 9:11 pm

Conselia City. Former capital of Trattoria. Now the center of the Immortal Empire.
Image

A Terrorkhan general returns from assignment. "Lord Warhead, I have news."
Image

Warhead: Come forward, General.
Image

General: My Lord, we have completed the survey of all Immortal Legions. Even after Ragnablok, there are still millions of troops standing ready. However, we have lost contact with the Immortal Galaxy and your grandfather, the Emperor. It appears it was destroyed in the Konvergence.
Warhead: Then I am the next in line for the throne. We are now the Immortal Empire, and I am your emperor.
General: Long Live Emperor Warhead! I will initiate the shard contingency plan at once, my Emperor. We will destroy all the pretenders to your throne.
Image

Warhead: No need, General. I have already consulted with all the other shards. We are of one mind on the matter.
General: My Emperor! How is such a thing possible?
Image

Warhead: Something strange happened at the Konvergence, General. But despite our losses at the battle, I have returned stronger. I, and my fellow shards, now share a single hive mind. We are the WARSINGULARITY! With many bodies but only one mind, burning with war, I will complete what my Grandfather merely wished to do - conquer the entire Brikverse!
Image

Warhead: Inform our allies and summon the Admiralty. I wish to begin our conquest at once.
General: Right away, my Emperor!

This is all kinds of Epik, from the tiny representation of Conselia City to WARSINGULARITY.

The Peacenik'd better step up his game.
Not satisfied until the opponent is in the corner crying and asking what the hell is going on. Victory isn't necessary.

Immortal Trooper: The fleet admirals are here as you requested, Emperor.
Emperor Warhead: Good, send them in.
Image

Emperor Warhead: Lord Admiral Blackdog, Admiral Lyons. How stand the Britannian and GGE fleets?
Admiral Blackdog: The fleets stand ready to serve the Immortal Alliance, and to congratulate you on your ascendancy, Emperor.
Image

Admiral Lyons: As per your request, we have prepared an invasion plan to begin conquering the Brikverse. We've identified a number of weak systems in the former purple sector. Within Anno, there are several potential allies that would let us take advantage of the chaos there. I believe the T.L.A. is also quite vulnerable and would open a front to invade Luchardsko.
Image

Emperor Warhead: None of that interests me anymore.
Admirals: :???: :???:
Image

Emperor Warhead: Technician, display map overlay #A1C48B.
Image

Bewildered, the Admirals watch as their strategically chosen systems blink out of the map, replaced by bright green dots spread all over the Brikverse.
Emperor Warhead: Deploy your fleets to these systems immediately. Begin eradication procedures.
Image

Admiral Blackdog: Emperor Warhead, these are Brootal systems. They have no strategic value. The Brootals have stripped everything useful, and according to intelligence are far too busy starting a society to be a threat.
Admiral Lyons: Well, when the GGE was threatened by the Barnacle invasion, we completely eradicated any trace of those monsters so they would never endanger our galaxy again. Perhaps this is the right move. But we should solidify our position before engaging in such a protracted endeavor.
Image

Emperor Warhead: Do you doubt my strategy? Must I remind you that I have the intellect of a thousand shards combined?
Admiral Blackdog: Of course not, my Emperor. Just thinking out loud. We shall deploy the fleets as ordered.
Image

Admiral Lyons: Did Warhead always send his troops on fool's errands?
Admiral Blackdog: This is more foolish than most. But these are strange times.

Doctor: At last! A Brootal Sprout! I have been longing to get my hands on one of these since before we proved Maxwell's fungus theory wrong.
Lord Admiral Blackdog: Many troops have died to bring you this, Doctor. This may well be the only one we recover. Can you determine the answer to my question?
Doctor: Does the sun set on Britannia? My facilities at the Royal Society can unlock every secret of this budding beast.
Image

Blackdog: Captain, make sure the doctor arrives safely and swiftly. No one can know we have this sprout in our possession. I must attend to other duties at this time, but I expect to see you waiting at the fleet rendezvous.
Captain Colliedog: I am your loyal servant, Lord Admiral. BAD DOGS, RAH!
Image

The Lord Admiral walks into a bustling GGE laboratory.
Admiral Lyons: Lord Admiral Blackdog, I was not expecting you. Does this mean we recovered a sample?
Blackdog: I'm afraid not. It's been the same as anywhere else. The Brootals burn their farms and kill as many of our men as they can before abandoning their camps. We've made some headway but this purge is proving costly.
Lyons: Worth it, I hope, to prevent another apokalypse.
Image

Blackdog: Still playing with your space simulations, I see.
Lyons: The events of the Konvergence are still poorly understood. The more we know about that black hole, the better. Again, this new brikverse is fragile. Any cataclysm could send it spiraling into another collapse - perhaps permanently!
Image

Blackdog: Yes, Emperor Warhead wouldn't want that.
Image

Blackdog: Anyway, I just stopped in since I was early for our strategy meeting. Shall we get to it?
Lyons: Yes, of course. I've been itching for some fleet action, and this latest intelligence looks promising!

Can't wait to see some more brootalz vs. Immortals.

Edit: Maybe one of those Brootal systems is near me. It gives me something to use my brootalz and immortals for.
