Towards a Brighter Future by the-Orator Towards a Brighter Future by the-Orator
Order is the only way to maintain peace, but ponykind would destroy itself before it could ever so much as imagine a flawless law system. That is why they need us. They need leaders, colts and mares with minds uncorrupt by the filth of this world, to lead them into a world of peace, into a brighter future. Even the pathetic Lunar Republic cannot deny our military strength, with which we will one day crush their treasonous ideals! Join our ranks to guide ponykind upwards to its true potential!

Also made for the t-shirt contest but I don't know if I made it :(

The one with the biggest guns.

Good heart does nothing against HEIAP rounds, buddy.

Or Depleted-Uranium ammo, for that matter.

Or Napalm.

I'll stick to whoever's got the biggest guns. ;)

While History does favor the one with firepower, it favors more those who can make more of it than the other side. =)

Oh, of course--industrial capacity is important too; didn't forget that. (Japan lost HALF of their carrier fleet in like, what, six months back in WW2? Their fate was sealed airtight right then and there, especially given their smaller industrial base).

In conflicts, there are often both good and bad people on both sides of the conflict, and both sides often have legitimate justification and horrible flaws to their philosophies and causes. 

Even today, it's still difficult for most common people to grasp the notion that most conflicts are more complex than a struggle of Good VS Evil.

"One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, out

Everyone is waiting for the light
be afraid, don't be afraid
the sun is shining out of my eyes
it will not set tonight
and the world counts loudly to ten

One
Here comes the sun
Two
Here comes the sun
Three
It is the brightest star of them all
Four
Here comes the sun

The sun is shining out of my hands
it can burn, it can blind you all
when it breaks out of the fists
it lays down hotly on the face
it will not set tonight
and the world counts loudly to ten

One
Here comes the sun
Two
Here comes the sun
Three
It is the brightest star of them all
Four
Here comes the sun
Five
Here comes the sun
Six
Here comes the sun
Seven
It is the brightest star of them all
Eight, nine
Here comes the sun

The sun is shining out of my hands
it can burn, it can blind you
when it breaks out of the fists
it lays down hotly on your face
it lays down painfully on your chest
balance is lost
it lets you go hard to the floor
and the world counts loudly to ten

One
Here comes the sun
Two
Here comes the sun
Three
It is the brightest star of them all
Four
And it will never fall from the sky
Five
Here comes the sun
Six
Here comes the sun
Seven
It is the brightest star of them all
Eight, nine
Here comes the sun,"

You know, after reading the chapters you posted and seeing the respective faction posters, I can't help but compare this to Command and Conquer. The Solar Empire creed certainly parallels GDI ideology, and the Lunar Republic seems more than a little Nod-ish.

The reason I am bringing this up is that I am now imagining Luna/NMM as an expy of Kane. And it is AWESOME! Long live the Messiah!!!

Anyway, just a suggestion for when you finally reveal Luna.

I've never heard of Command and Conquer
Is it a video game?
Reply
:icondarkkitsuneshinigami:
One of the first Real-Time Strategy games, as well as one of the most famous ones, along with Warcraft and Age of Empires. I was comparing this to the 'Tiberium' sub-series.

Quick backstory summary: An alien substance called Tiberium arrives on earth through a series of meteors Twenty Minutes into the Future. This strange plant/crystal/organism spreads rapidly, and has a number of unusual properties. Most importantly, it leeches minerals from wherever it grows and creates large (semi-radioactive and highly toxic) crystals. As a simple way to gather minerals, they're a very valuable resource. Side effects include death, mutation, and xenoforming, and the stuff is more virulent than Japanese knotweed.

The two main factions are the Global Defense Initiative (GDI), pretty much the successor to the UN, except they are quite a bit closer to a military state, mostly characterized by some questionable morality, a 'If you're not with us, you're against us' ideology, and their approach to solving just about any problem, that solution being: Blast the crap out of it until it ceases to be a problem.

On the other side we have the Brotherhood of Nod, a rebel faction that opposes the GDI as well as being pretty much a cult to their enigmatic and seemingly immortal (You can't kill the Messiah!) leader Kane. They prioritize stealth and guerrilla tactics, as well as Kane being a Magnificent Bastard/Chessmaster in the same league as David Xanatos and Lelouch Vi Britannia.

So yeah, quite a few parallels with what you have down so far.

Say, how many factions are there? I mean, theres the Solar Empire, the Lunar Republic, someone on here mentioned Zebra Warlords which would be interesting, but how many could there be?

And since its an empire, can Celestia call in soldiers and weapons from her colonies, like Britain in WW1?
