Emperor Starships - Details


Starships —> Emperor Starships - Details

Approximately every 6-12 months, Planets.nu holds a Championship game. The winner of that game is crowned Emperor, and given the opportunity to design a starship for the race they represented. These starships are complex, with a great deal of interaction between the starship, its abilities, and the advantages of the race. In an attempt to keep the game in balance, these powerful starships usually have a weak point that can be exploited to turn them against the creator. This page describes these starships.

It is possible that some of the features of these starships have not been provided to the public, so be prepared for some surprises when you use them.

Please note: These starships can only be used in Campaign games , with all the restrictions that come with those games. They have no effect on Classic, Standard or Championship games.

Emperor Dungeonmaster - Dungeon Class Stargate

The Dungeon Class Stargate was designed by Emperor Dungeonmaster after he won the second Championship game ( The Taurus War ), and was crowned as the first Emperor.

Physically, this is a strange starship. It appears to be rather fragile in construction. It is believed that this was done to achieve the proper spacing for the Warp Chunnel sensors, amplifiers and emitters, while keeping the starship mass (already one of the heaviest starship hulls known) from becoming even greater.
