The Iron Crusade is a new UFP theme I will be using for some of my new MOCs. A lot of the credit for the story goes to tim ltd, for editing and adding much detail. anyway, read the story below to find out what the "Iron Crusade" is.
The flag sybolizes this:
The red is the hardship that the UFP has endured.
The white stripes supposedly go on forever, as in the Crusade will be infinite.
The red ball represents the "Homeworld"
The UFP has been completley dominant for over 400 years. However, it wasn't an easy task. After brutal wars and colasal battles, the UFP finally came out above all the others, and it made them pay dearly. Being the main faction, the UFP have been making the newest inovations in science, technology, space travel, weapons, and other areas, It is truly the dominant force in the galaxy. Anyone who tried to go against it was crushed without mercy or remorse. This, is total and utter control and domincance.
But,in the end, everything has to come to an end, even the might of the UFP. Without warning, the black plague hit. No one knows where it came from. No one knows the cure, it took scientists all of 500 years to fiannally find an 80% cure, but by then, the population was already down by the billions. And that vital 20% was still impossible to be found. But the damage had been done and the UFP had been badly crippled by the plague. Other nations saw the weakness and decided to take advantadge of it.
Slowly bu suerly, the attacks started and the UFP started to lose territory on the outer worlds. Then, outer rim fell, followed bythen the mid-rim, and finally, It came down to a battle over the Capitol planet of the UFP, Transloria, known as "The Homeworld" by the people who survived. The grim determination of the surviors resulted in the UFP finally pulling out a victory. With one victory under thier belt, the once nearly-destroyed UFP started to grow and slowy but surely, started it's painstakingly long revival.
It took over 100 years, but the UFP rose from the ashes, and retook most of the core worlds. Those who stood in there way were completely annialiahted. The UFP had become even more savage, and they people who fought had scores to settle.They fought with vengence, the intensity to destroy all that had attacked them in their hour of need. As time passed the UFP become as strong as they had been,Conquering even more, and were deemed the most fearsome faction to every
Finally, after years of fighting and terrible war, The other factions waved the white flag. They knew that they would be annialiahated if this were to continue. After negotiations, they Great Treaty was signed.
Then there was peace. For 300 years, there was peace. Other empires retreated in fear, but slowly they became confident, encrhoaching on UFP territory, thinking the UFP had grown soft during the years of peace. That they had lost the will to fight.
They were horribly, horribly wrong.
Then, without warning or reason the UFP changed, and went on a savage campaign, full of vengence on those who had fourght against it. Despite being the strongest, there were still factions out there that need to suffer, and ultimately, be destroyed. It was quickly nicknamed "The Iron Crusade" , although it had nothing to do with a holy war, the civilians and soldiers seemed to think that the name fit. And it did. The Iron crusade had becone it's cold, cruel march into outer space, seeking revenge for the grandparents and great-grandparents who were long ago killed in battle ot by the black death. With one thing in mind: revenge
Oh and Duugan O, This is simply a branch story. I will still build creations of the current UFP, and the new theme as well. The Old UFP creations will be based on your system.
the Berilian Empire could crush you if we wanted to, but we are a peaceful people. however, if you attack Berilia we will fight back and all your battleships will be destroyed by our huge starlazers, and you will need a death star to even get throuhg our shields!!!
