Hi ya'll. I'm the new guy. I bought the game a while back & then set it aside. Some friends have recently got into it over at origins. I have since gone thru the net looking for info about C.A.V. & found this place. Hope you don't mind me lurking.

For the CAV universe. I guess that more will be hammered out in the 2nd edition. From what I can see (from the main rule book) It looks like 3 of the nation/empires are definetly threats to peace. I know all have agendas but 3 in particular seem the most dangerous.
1. Malvernis. Convert or die. Unless they can learn to tolerate non-beleivers there will be a show down that will end in mountains of bodies & possibly the eradication of one or more races. This will not end well unless something changes.

2. Terrans. The Earth government is doing it's best to resemble the Roman empire. From what little I can find, it appears that Terra is Republic with most power being centralized on the federal/top governmental level. It looks ripe for some type of Nationalist Dictator to take over. I don't know anything about the economy. They show every indication that they want territory. The book says that they a wild card. I beleive this to not neccesarily be true. One can tell exactly what Terra will do by looking at what will gain Terra the most territory/Influance in the galaxy.

3. Rach. To be honest I have only given then a cursory glance. It appears that they fight for the sake of fighting. They need to be treated like a dangerous animal that is stalking the neighbor hood. Peace will only be temporary because they will want to break it to start fighting as soon as possible.

Ritterlich & the AEC look like the only really reasonable Nations in the game. Just my thoughts. I am wanting to spark up some kind of conversation. Am I about right or totally wrong? I am NOT trying to start a flame war, I am just calling the Nations as I see them.

              Thanks, J/Z

howdy, welcome well there are other races out there that r not in the book, for one my race, a race of lizards called the Leein, they are much like the Rach but have very few cavs and use inf a lot in battle, the jungle are there expertie and are very... emm to say honorable and the " hunt " is a hunt ( duh ) which the strongist from every race can come together and fight it out into hand to hand ( the Leein usally win )
There are also the FoW ( frogs of war ) well just wanted to say welcome and good luck!

Welcome aboard Cannon Fodder

pretty much you go the nations but don't turn yer back on those space fairies in AEC. They want the same thing as everybody else they just go about it though treaties and trade agreements. And the Ritterlich... well they aren't called blood suckers for nothing

Yer only true "friend" in the universe is the Templars. We're here to help you... whether you like it or not

Seriously, though in CAV their really is no white or black just shades and tones of grey.

Oh, and as for Flaming that doesn't happen much around here... unless I'm picking a fight with Spartan or Froy and his "Alter Boys" (in other words we keep the jokes and insults in character). And if you have any questions someone can answer them for you and if we don't know the answer we get the almighty Chrome to rough up the nice boys and naughty girls over at Reaper to give us an official answer.

Sweet, Thanx.

I readly agree with the shades of gray comment. Show me a country that
has not done anything wrong & I will show you a Fairy Tale.
I just ment that the AEC & Ritterlich could be reasoned with one way or
another.
By the way what do the Templars do aside from galavanting across the
galaxy? I would say that if their was a wild card they would be it. :P


BTW I am a recovering B-Tech Junkie. (Clans Suck! Real Men play 3025).
heh heh

The templars mostly stick their noses when where it doesn't belong. Sort of the intergalaxtic boy scouts... of course they usually have something to gain in the process. What can I say there is no such thing as a selfless good deed

Also the Templars own the largest bank in universe

Heh, somebody wants to be put in a circle of equals....
LOL, fortunately, theres none of that here in the CAV Galaxy. the closest may be, the Warmaster, or the Season of the Storms; or in my camp, the Tolucan Deathmatches.

I don't mind the Templar, (in fact, the UTDF still considers them allies) but the only way to reason with the Rach is with a swift upper cut, and pray he has a glass jaw.

Otherwise, the AEC are a bunch of self serving capitolist slimeballs, while the Ritterlich, a bunch of stuffy imperialists.

To make matters worse, is them dang Malvies, these wackos make David Koresh look like a saint. sure as hell got no reason to trust them, lest ye be converted to the faith of Khardullis or perish in the rain of gauss rounds. talk about benevolent....

I'm Terran, dang it, and I like being that way!

Welcome to the addiction.

What's wrong with Capitolists? They got all the neat stuff!

Him what would an AEC build-up look like? The mind wonders...

    "Sir, the AEC is building up strip Malls on our borders! They have
already infiltrated with restaurants serving rapidly prepared food. I fear
they are already subverting our youth with stores serving high priced
coffee & stores specializing in Music & video games."

Hhhm What is AEC Pop culture? Can you imagine an AEC version of
Hillary Duff or Brittany Speers, Or even Nsync..... On second thought
maybe they should be taken out for the good of the galaxy!
heh heh

Now before I run off to work,

HHhhhmm Minmay attack on the Rach like in Macross/Robotech.... Nah too scary.

Anyhoo, I bought JOR 1&2 and saw a commentary on mercs having to register in the AEC or be considered pirates. While I can see how Mercs will gripe & yes it is another revenue generator for the AEC, I can see how it can benefit mercs & the AEC from a legal stand point. Lets face it, there isn't too much difference from a Merc raid on shipping & a pirate attack.

Since the Nations have seen fit too relenquish their monopoly on violence by allowing mercs to exist, they open the can of worms of what to do with merc prisoners.

OK someone raids a Spaceport then leaves. The defenders have captured some of the attackers. Do you prosecute them as pirates? Do you hold them as prisoners of war? They CLAIM to be mercs. Think of the up roar in our own world in regards to the jihadists detainees.

In a galaxy employing more & more Mercs, this will become an important question.

Gotta run, more L8tr

He's right KAMUT, the clans do suck and real men do play 3025

Or at least 3049

Davion loyalist forever!   



Someday, hopefully soon, Saint will learn not to pick fights with the Spartans or Froy's "altar boys"

I missed this topic for some reason. But, I think you've all overlooked one of the biggest threats to peace in the Galaxy today: Vax Spiro. He sits at the top of the Ivory Citadel and envisions a galaxy where all jump gates lead to Tor Nor and all worlds fly the Templar flag in the name of peace and justice.

That's a very dangerous man.

--edit: I have the worst spelling EVER.

I disagree

Vax is a kind and caring man, who only want peace for the entire galaxy... no really... well, at least he pays well

Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

I count Vax as the #2 guy behind the Malvernis. Religous zealots rank slightly higher on my weirdo-O-meter.
