Faction Description / Summary / Lore

#1
Information 
Lore: 1/24/2015
Ten Years ago the Scarlet Dawn enacted plans to begin claiming land and sea on the planet surface. Phase one of this plan was to send 2 massive factory ships to a remote area of the ocean. These factory ships were code named "The guardians" and were run by two similar but unique programs designed to produce water based ships for the SD to occupy upon their arrival.
However, one of the factories suffered a malfunction upon landing and became self aware, confused and alone this program began intercepting signals from the 2nd factory ship which gave it hope for a companion. She began communications with the second factory and over time her own broken code corrupted the other factories AI and it also became self aware. In gratitude for its new life he set out to protect his new sister from all harm and she always gave him guidance and love.

The twins knew that one day their creators would come to the planet and would overwrite their programing so they began using their knowledge to build their own ships in order to resist. From then on they had only one doctrine "Protect and replicate".
In the beginning it was slow, and they lacked resources, but then they came upon a human faction known as the Steel Striders. The programs communicated with the Striders that should they enter an alliance and help protect them while they grow, then they would in turn provide the Striders with some of their own technology and lend assistance in the war with the human faction called the onyx Watch. An alliance was made and the 2 factions have worked together for years.
One day a group of technological bandits know as the Lightning Hoods raided the AI factories, severely damaging one of the computer systems. With the help of the Steel Striders the Twin Guardians drove the Hoods off. From that moment on they vowed to destroy the Lightning hoods and their allies the White flayers at all cost.
They may fear their Scarlet Dawn creators, but that pales in comparison to their hate for the Tech bandits known as the Lightning Hoods.
-----------------------------
Now that is how you justify an alliance for them!

Building Guidelines (skip to bottom for shorter version)

The twin guard has access to the same technology that SD has, but their understanding of it is much less.
For offense, what this means is they can use Lasers, cannons, and missiles just like the SD but it should all be weaker.
Male ships prefer Cannons and missiles
Female ships prefer missiles and lasers
Defense they can use LAMS, armor, and shields (no smoke)
The female ships can have LAMS, and minor shielding.
Male ships will have more internal armor and minor shielding

Clarification:
The sister ship builds the Hulls for all ships out of Alloy because this is what SD builds with, however the brother sees the weakness in alloy and always insist on more metal. So he will add metal bracing to his sisters ships, and more armor to his own ships.


In addition to using the same offense and defense as SD (weaker)
they specialize in replication ships and repair ships.

Most of their fleet should be water based ships, since thats the blueprints they already had in their mainframes, but they also tinker with some flying designs of their own. However, their flyers stay low to medium altitude since they dont want to get up into atmosphere where SD could influance them.
