A/N; If you recognize it as not mine, I don't own it and am borrowing it from somewhere and am too lazy and busy to outline everything I am borrowing. This is a big list, as it includes references for ALL major technologies used in this stories. Some Sci-fi knowledge is required for this story
Tech notes for Drow Tails: This is a technological reference and timeline of important dates for the story. Sharnorasian calendar is rated in galactic years for them, each galactic year is 1 to the 24th power (1 followed by 24 zeroes).
1740: Evacuation and glassing of original Cilarista homeworld before arriving on Xanroth after 2nd Drython War.
G.Y: 3740: Xathrala, Lloth and Sirokass are born to respective races of Cilarista symbiote, (It is unknown what race Lloth classifies herself as she does not know herself entirely as she came into being without being born 'traditionally' and is not normally a Dark Elf or Drow) and Hell Dragon
G.Y 3740.041: Xathrala while dimension travelling encounters Lloth another evil goddess and begin a relationship
G.Y 3740.087: Lloth and Xathrala have a massive fight over political doctrines and split up.
G.Y 3740.099: Xathrala encounters Sirokass on her homeworld of Xanroth and engages him in battle, it is a narrow defeat for Xathrala who is then by Hell Dragon magic enslaved to Sirokass for a time
G.Y 3740.101: Xathrala and Sirokass openly declare a relationship
G.Y 3740.205: Xathrala is badly injured during a starship battle during Cilarista Civil War, becomes cybernetically enhanced, Lloth returns and is offered a place to form a three way alliance. Lloth is reluctant due to her doctrines about males and her natural preferences. Start and end of 3rd Drython war (results in 99.9% extermination of that species)
G.Y 3740:206: Lloth agrees to the formation of the alliance, a three way soul bond is formed granting marriage to the three with each other.
G.Y 3742: Xathrala delves into the black arts of demonology and becomes empress BlackRose Hellfire of all demons. Sirokass is considerably displeased as Hell Dragons and demons/demoniacs are considered mortal enemies, but is able to overcome his instinctual feelings.
G.Y 3743: Empire takes by Drow and Hell Dragon law the name of Sharnorasian Empire as Xathrala is both stronger magically and with blades then her mates. Xathrala surprises all by breaking a normally viewed fundamental magical law by taking through her magical and genetic birthright of the necromancer throne of darkness and the title of ultimate necromancer: Darkwielder. It is normally thought and proven that demoniac (hellfire) magic and necromantic magic will tear each other apart on contact. This has been proven with multiple magical duels and genetic tests done where even on the cellular level the two separate sources of tainted blood have tried to destroy the other.
G.Y 3745-3990: Cilarista Civil War, from official beginning to end. Battles of Xanroth, Kadiskott, Kryron, Menzon, Kassvandran, and Xyrolth systems, civil war ends in Sharnorasian loyalist forces victory under Xathrala, Lloth and Sirokass.
G.Y: 4000-4041 (current date) Resurgence of High Elven/Sharnorasian war: In 3742 a race of space fairing High Elves encountered the Sharnorasian Empire borders, the High Elves, seeing Drow began harassing the empire. Sabotage from Elven insurgents caused injuries to Xathrala forcing cybernetic upgrades on Xathrala.
The Kirdran 4 incident occurred which resulted in a miscarriage of the three's unborn child and death of the three's daughter Laranitha (La-ra-nai-tha) and results in infertility in Xathrala till cure in 4040. The three (Lloth, Sirokass and Xathrala) declare all out war, Xathrala orders extermination of their systems.
Battles across 300 star systems result in all Sharnorasian victories and over 2,300 worlds are burned to glass under Sharnorasian plasma projectors. Elves escaped with 100,000 refugees and a smattering of military ships. Returning in staggering strength, having allied with the psychological and physical of Sharnorasian Hell Dragons, the Heaven Dragons have come on the side of the Elves in an attempt to defeat the evil Sharnorasian Star Empire.
April 4041.01: Current date
Technologies used:Particle/primary weapons for starships
Quantum beam arrays and cannons- This is much like the phasers from Star Trek, but these beams draw energy from subspace, now subspace energy cannot exist on our normal plane without exploding violently. Shows as a purple beam of energy that opens a small rupture for subspace energy to enter the beam and explode on enemy defences.
Plasma turrets: These sizable weapons fire huge globs of heated plasma at 1/4 the speed of light.
Gatling quantum disrupters: These small plaques are point defence weapons, they protect the ship from enemy strike craft and missile attacks (unless overwhelmed by too many missiles to fire on). These things unleash bolts of pulsed quantum bolts at multiple targets.
Quantum disrupters: Similar versions of the PD system, but is meant for ship to ship exchanges, not for missile defence.
Missile weapons for starships:
Heavy plasma missiles: a missile surrounded in gold plasma and sporting a powerful warhead that carries an explosive charge. Upon detonation spreads the plasma in the warhead all over a target area, causing degradation of both shields and armor.
Quantum torpedoes: Carries a small duodronic chamber in the warhead to create a small conduit of subspace energy which is then exposed during detonation causing a massive explosion from subspace energy contacting normal space.
Cobra turret: Massive shell 10 feet long carrying trapped subspace energy, or fragments, these turrets can either do powerful damage or act as point defence support. Nicknamed "Damn power hogs." For a reason
Plasma Projectors: These massive beam arrays contain tremendous amounts of plasma which are fired at 90% of the speed of light, the sheer heat and energy can melt through shields, armor plating, ships and planets without trying. Created originally for the Drython wars, considerer weapon of last resort due to charge up times and energy signature. "Any ship with its plasma projectors powered in battle is as obvious as Sirokass in a snow field." (Xathrala Sharnoras in 3742 to Lloth)
Energy shields: The classic bubble of energy absorbing all attacks until it fails.
Deployable ablative armor (Sharnorasian technology only): Ablative armor that is deployed over a ship and absorbs all attacks till armor is overwhelmed and needs repair/replacing. Ablative armor reacts to particle and plasma weapons by boiling off into steam, steam carries off 75-90% of blast energy, armor can be replaced by parts of ablative armor in energy transporter pattern buffer.
Mana shields (High elf/Heaven Dragon only) A magical well of energy in a ship that can project a super powered shield, but has poor regeneration.
Plasma shields (Sharnorasian tech only): A shield projects as a side benefit of the plasma projectors (even unpowered), these shields can only stop high concentrations of plasma (i.e. plasma projector fire only). These shields can stop 2x the number of projectors a ship has.Infantry weapons for Sharnorasian Empire
Mark 5 sidearm: A handgun resembling the .50 Desert Eagle, this gun replaces gunpowder with electromagnetic coils which propel the bullet at tremendous speeds, uses special caseless rounds, each magazine (proper term for a clip) carries 210 rounds. (referred to as M5SA), can use special energy shield piercing rounds. Each M5SA has a subspace phase emitter allowing the bullet to be propelled past lightspeed without violating laws of physics (as it takes on new laws)
Mark 7 SMG: Uses the same ammo as the sidearm, this gun resembles a stripped down Uzi this gun replaces gunpowder with electromagnetic coils which propel the bullet at tremendous speeds, uses special caseless rounds. Carries 16,000 rounds, can use special energy shield piercing rounds. Each M7SMG has a subspace phase emitter
Mark 4 Plasma sidearm. Resembling the Glock 17 Carried as well as the M5SA, the M4PSA uses disposable energy cells with minor duodronic reactors inside to charge the magnetic field generators around each plasma bolt. Each cell can fire 25,000 plasma bolts, but due to possible dampening fields (which makes plasma sidearms non functional) the M4PSA or PSA will be useless.
Spider class series 10 plasma assault rife, resembling the Heckler and Kosh G11 assault rifle. This rifle is similar in firing capabilities to the PSA, as it uses larger disposable energy cells with minor duodronic reactors inside to charge the magnetic field generators around each plasma bolt or plasma grenade. Each cell can fire 250,000 plasma bolts or 250 plasma energy grenades. Unlike the PSA, the rifle can switch between a semi-auto longer ranged quantum beam mode for precise targets and larger plasma bolts similar to the PSA. The gun can also charge large amounts of plasma for plasma grenades to fire. Unlike the human G11, this version carries a rear mounted ejector for spent energy cells, above which is an ammo counter. The ammo mount loads a larger magazine filled with 60 energy cells, so ammo issues is not much of a factor.
The Magnetic Accelerator Cannon (MAC) mark 6 sniper rifle, a much more powerful version of the M5SA and the M7SMG, resembling a large sniper rifle. Each MAC has a subspace phase emitter allowing the bullet to be propelled past Lightspeed without violating laws physics (as it takes on new laws). MAC box magazines carry 80 rounds, each round has seismic charges within the point. These charges create the equivalent of a 10 on the Richter scale within the armor of a vehicle or a person fired on. Can use shield piercing rounds.
The MAC Mark 4 light and heavy machine gun Each MAC LMG and HMG (as it takes on new laws). MAC LMG box magazines carry 250,000 rounds. HMG box magazines carry 1,000,000 rounds, both can use shield piercing rounds.
Random technology notes
Shield piercing rounds: each round is tipped with a miniature shield generator with a field inverter, the field inverter creates a bubble around the bullet and prevents the shield from stopping the bullet. Hard and expensive to produce only a small amount people have
Duodronic technology: These reactors utilize large Dronic crystals, these crystals are converted to their gaseous forms, these molecules when two of them connect, open a stable portal to subspace this connection combined with the dronic reaction creates a heated liquid plasma which powers everything in Sharnorasian technology.
Plasma matrix: The power system connects every system with conduits through which the liquid plasma flows, the sheer heat and energy in the plasma allows for tremendous power offered
Dimensional creation technology and spells: Much like the bags of holding, the Sharnorasian Empire and others of around the same technological rating can build ships that are in phase with everything else about it, but be much bigger on the inside than on the outside (Launch bays especially)
Xathrala's right arm: The cybernetic right arm of the empress uses crystallized electrodrivers and servodrivers, essentially artificial nerves (electrodrivers) and command/reaction enhancers (servodrivers). Having a crystallized structure allows empress Xathrala to use magic through her artificial arm easier than one would cast normally.
