Funny enough they call it earth too. I can't remember what page it says that.

Edit: Here was a another thread form almost 5 years ago.viewtopic.php?f=88&t=16873

This is what Junglefowl26 side about the lack of details of the tech in DT.

I don't think there are any technical details. I mean, one side has ships that literally run on magic....plus, it is kind of ecchi/comedy/space opera, so tech isn't a major focus, not the details at any rate.


And here is a little fact from suntiger745 about the choose you story/porno.

I wouldn't read too much into the tech though. The readers vote on options in daydream and Slavemasters can insert options too.
To illustrate: I remember the first drow/dirt hume ship fight. At first there was a vote to have the drow do massive damage easily. That annoyed some people and the next winning option was to have the dirt humes do massive damage easily.
Or the other way around.

The point is, what the tech can do, on both sides, isn't consistent. It is thus hard to define what the tech actually can and can't do, since the winning option can adjust or even outright contradict what has happened before (though we do try to avoid the later when writing the script).


So I have to agree the info about tech in SA is about as important as the plot in deep throat.

IIRC, didn't Expy-Ariel scoff at the name of the Dirt Humes' homeworld during the interrogation?

"Who in their right mind would call their homeworld the same word as -Dirt- anyway!?"

If we want to balance the drow's starship weaponry with Mass Effect's, at least put them in the kiloton yield similar to ME's when writing an ME/Space Age fanfic.

Like Jungle and Suntiger side, there is no data about any of the tech. It's a hentai comic for crying out loud!

Anything about the drows military capabilities has to be made up.

Still, how would a first contact situation occur in the story for the drow? Would it be similar to the canon comic but with some changes? Like the unknown forces that attacked the drow research outpost and space station were the Nod, while the ship that drow encountered and boarded was actually a damaged GDI cruiser?

Or would it be something different, Obsidian Agent?

How about this. The drow are exploring a new system when they discover a mass relay (And use mama on it, instead of E-0 ). Just like the humans in MA, they try to activate any relay they can get there hands on. And also like the humans, there going to be a Citadel race (races) that are going to be unhappy.

If its the turians, there going to something simerler to the First Contact War. If it the humans, I really don’t know. Would the GDI be more peaceful? Then agin the Nod would try to trick the GDI and the Drow to fight each other. Still I the Citadel Council will tell to stop the war.

Well, in "Renegade", GDI and Nod have a peace treaty that both sides actually honor, and have actually worked together against common threats before, like during the Shanxi war, where Nod cyborgs helped fight the Turians before the GDI fleet arrived. So, while not allies, they aren't enemies either. So no, I don't think that Nod would try to trick the Drow into attacking GDI.

Also, since GDI and Nod are independent of the Citadel (but still maintain diplomatic ties with it), I don't think they'd respond to the Drow accidentally activating a Mass Relay, so the Turians would be the ones responding. Which would go exactly as well as it sounds.

So, after eventual contact with GDI and Nod (and the ensuing culture shock) occurs, the Drow may or may not eventually let GDI and Nod give aid to the humans (or whatever) of their homeworld, and possibly let them colonize planets of their own, to remain independent of the Drow. If this goes smoothly, and if there's still bad blood with the Citadel, then it's possible that the Drow might become one of GDI's allied races, like the Krogan and Quarians.

Now, things get interesting once the Drow meet the Big Boys - the Reapers and the Scrin. More so the Scrin, since they're the ones currently active, and have tech that the Reapers don't. In fact, the Scrin's tech is more like something out of Star Trek, which is what makes them so deadly. Hard to counter an enemy who can just teleport into your base/onto your ship, mind-control your troops, create bubbles of frozen time, and other such shenanigans. The Drow would be in for a NASTY surprise if they thought they could take the Scrin on. Not to mention the Scrin have gotten hold of the Husks, and have equipped them with their own tech. Since the Scrin and Geth are allies.

Not to mention the Collectors have begun their invasion a few years ahead of schedule....

I hope I don't upset you when I say this, but why do you seem to put the drow on the totem poll in these stores and questions threads?

I know they shouldn't be the dominate force but why they are pulling the short straw? And why is that sort of thing is going to teach them humility like you keep on saying? *hmmm*

Well, the Drow aren't exactly LOW on the totem poll here, the Scrin and Reapers just outclass EVERYONE.

As for why I do this, well, I guess I've been influenced by Lovecraft's stories, where the people who think they know how the world works, and that they're on top of the totem pole suddenly find out that... no, they're not.

That, and I'm a fan of the "Break the Haughty" trope. So there's that...

Edit: I'm sorry, man. I think I went to far with that last post. I kind of feel like kettle the pot black talking my AU story.
