• Nobles of Null is a forum based roleplay site where sci-fi and magic collide. Here, Earth remains fractured and divided despite humanity reaching out to the stars. Worse still, the trans-human slaves of one major power have escaped, only to establish their own Empire, seething with resentment at abuses of the past. Even the discovery of aliens, though medieval in development, has failed to rally these squabbling children of Earth together with its far darker implications. Worse still, is the discovery of the impossible - magic. Practiced by the alien locals, nearly depleted and therefore rare, its reality warping abilities remains abstract and distant to the general populace. All the while, unseen in the darkness of space, forces from without threaten to press in. For those with eyes opened by insight, it is clear that an era is about to end, and that a new age will dawn.

    Particle Beams

    Ray: "What's stopping us from using particle beams?" Obligatory: http://www.projectrho.com/public_html/rocket/spacegunconvent2.php Nothing is stopping us, the Daqin are already using them. I imagine particle beams sit in a weird middle-ground territory and as such they aren't widely used...

    Day in the Life: Escape from the Heavenly State

    "Sure thing love," Jun said with a smile. The man dropped enough hints that he clearly was Daqin, but he was also laying on the Rowdy customer thick. She'd skip over offering him a body shot.

    Day in the Life: Escape from the Heavenly State

    Jun would give her a nod as part of her drink-mixing process. She had a shaker in hand, and was holding it out infront of her with both her arms applying a not-so-subtle amount of pressure against her chest as she mixed a drink, "Come get one of my Milkshakes boys!" The costumes seemed to be a...

    Daqin VR Tech

    I got the impression it wasn't an implant, but instead something baked into the Daqin from day 1 of their design (Part of why we can't just transfer a human brain over to a computer chip). Going to let Cadet respond before I just start saying unfounded things tho.

    "Everyone is saying you liked him enough to give him a kid," Jun expressed wirelessly, operating entirely on the rumors that had been spread about that particular Chongwu she had made, "OR is not liking it the point of being a Lewdite? I don't really understand that particular taste but there's...

    "That's what I just said!" Jun replied as calmly as she could, pouting a bit as she struggled to get through to Hoshiko, "If you can't even be bothered to learn to cook what else aren't you bothering to learn? Other Daqin aren't going to take interest in you as anything more than a generic...

    "Maybe you should be, a little bit of personal appeal would help you stand out among the other officer candidates." Jun replied as good naturedly as one could say that a lack of people skills is holding her back. "You should see what an officer would do for the treats I can make with a real...
