Sabatonne aka The Fortress of Arrogance by 0verlordofyou Sabatonne aka The Fortress of Arrogance by 0verlordofyou
Sabatonne. The greatest construct the empire has ever made. It wasn't merely a building that they had constructed, but an entire world. Over a hundred systems died, sacrificed to this megalithic undertaking. Even now the last few parts are being brought in to complete the tower. It is a symbol of power that few will ever see. And fewer still are those that will actually gain access. It is the seat of power for the entire empire.

Sabatonne Info: Those that live within its walls often refer to it as "The Hive." Those that have actually seen it from the outside often call it the "Fortress of Arrogance." Although the latter of the two isn't really said aloud too often. It and the entire world it rests upon were created from the resources of uninhabitable worlds. These worlds where destroyed in the process. The entire thing rests within a bubble of space and time. It is essentially another dimension within our dimension. If you where to stand on the surface of the planet and look up you would see a sky that was almost blindingly bright and what appears to be a black sun hanging overhead. This black sun is actually the entrance that connects the bubble with the rest of the universe. It is the first line of defense and acts as a strategic choke point. The diameter is normally 100 miles but can be shrunk down to only three miles. The entrance can also be rotated in real space, forcing a foe to circle around in order to gain entrance. Unfortunately the rate at which it rotates is rather slow. Sabatonne is not only fortress to protect the Council of Thirteen, but is also a major research facility. Here, some of the brightest minds from throughout the empire come to put research into the latest technological marvels. This can be anything from new weapons to a new and quicker way to toast bread. It is also home to "The Order of the Emerald Sword" and houses over a thousand of its members. They train here and act as the Overlord's bodyguards.

Sabatonne Stats:
Tower Height: 453 miles
Tower Width at base: 174 miles
Planet's name: Primus
Planet's diameter: 8,500 miles

Tower Weapons:
Anti-ground Cannon- If any army where to land on Primus, Sabatonne would be forced to defend itself. And the best way to defend yourself is to make sure that the enemy never gets a chance to attack. The anti-ground cannon is a very large gun that can either be a solid shot rail gun or a large laser. Both are more than capable of raining destruction down upon an enemy force.

Plasma Oblivion Cannon- The oblivion cannon is a very large plasma cannon meant to blast enemy ships until there is nothing left but some bits of molten metal.

Offensive Point Defense: Designed to blast large missiles or small ships out of the Overlords airspace.

Heavy Plasma Projector- By changing the power in a certain spot in the plasma emitter it can change the direction of the beam mid-flight. This means great fun for gunners who have a small competition between themselves of who can get the most kills from a single beam.

Quad-Laser Cannon- Take four large laser cannons and make sure that they all hit the same target at the same spot and you've got a relatively small gun port with a lot of power.

Tactical Missile Launcher- If you take a missile larger than a small space craft and launch it at an enemy, the only thing that will happen is it will end up being shot down. Now if you give this missile its own personal shielding then you have a much better chance of the matter destroying warhead reaching its intended target.

Disruptor Cannon- Disruptor cannons fire a blast that can bypass most shields and disrupts the bonds that hold matter together. This means if the ship that is hit by it is small enough it will appear to simply vanish.

Particle Cannon- Particle cannons fire a continuous beam of destruction. This makes it great for knocking out shields or destroying fighters.

Missile Station- Any where that has a grouping of two or more missile tubes is a missile station. While two missile tubes won't do much, two hundred all firing at once will be quite noticeable.

Missile Tube- It fires missiles.

Shrapnel Multi-cannon- The shrapnel cannon is an anti-infantry gun designed to scrape scum from the side of this magnificent tower. Each cannon fires chunks of metal ranging in size from three inches to one and a half feet.

Interception Drone- The interception drone acts as a fighter to help defend Sabatonne in the event of an attack. Each drone is armed with either four lasers or two lasers and two missile launchers. The drones are slightly larger than a standard fighter but have heavy armour and shielding and are capable of pulling off moves that would kill any human pilot. Sabatonne carries tens of billions of drones.

Point Defense- This point defense is more than capable of shooting down enemy fighters or medium sized missiles but is useless against anything big enough to have any form of heavy shielding.

Plasma Cannon- The smaller cousin to the oblivion, this size is still deadly to any medium sized ship foolish enough to attack.

Anti-Fighter Laser- By itself the anti-fighter laser is more than able to destroy and enemy fighter or bomber. But when two combine their fire power on a single target there is a noticeable increase in death and destruction. When fifteen all open fire on a lone fighter the gunners are just being cruel and sadistic.

Shrapnel Cannon- Doesn't fire quite as much shrapnel as the multi-cannon version, but is still more than adequate for repelling invaders.

Anti-Missile Point Defense- Is only good for taking down incoming missiles.

Special Tech:
Total Conversion Beam- There are only thirteen total conversion beam cannons on the entire fortress. But that mean that they have only a little impact on a battle. Each beam turns any solid matter it impacts into pure energy. This can turn any enemy fighter into a nuclear bomb. Any ship that loses its shielding will find their hull riddled with nuclear explosions. Unfortunately, it has a difficult time with shielding and has to rely on other weapons to bring down an enemy's shield before it can effectively fire on anything.

Disruptor Projectors- The disruptor projector is the latest in weapon development and acts similarly to a heavy plasma projector. There are some key differences however. First is the shear size. The disruptor projector is massive. Each one is almost seven miles in diameter. The second difference is the rate of fire. While a heavy plasma projector can fire once every minute, the disruptor projector takes an hour before it can fire again. This weapon is still largely experimental and is very delicate. And while the standard recharge time is one hour there have been times where it took a whole week before it could fire again. Currently there are four installed in Sabatonne.

Void Shielding- The latest breakthrough in shielding tech, void shielding opens a rift into the void causing everything that would normally impact Sabatonne's shields to simply fly harmlessly into the void. However, due to the massive amount of power it takes to create and sustain the shield it is only activated in areas where a potent weapon will hit, and even then it is only on for a brief amount of time.


Flagship Victorious
Victorious is the Overlord's personal flagship. It was constructed around a satellite of a gas giant. It has the best weapons, armour, and shields that are available to the empire. It is armed with four disruptor annihilator cannons that are easily able to vaporize a capital ship in a single blast. Unfortunately, they require a three minute cool down before being fired again. In addition it posses twenty-six total conversion beam cannons, thirteen on the northern hemisphere and thirteen on the southern. It also comes with the innumerable weapons found on all star ships.

Home System
The gateway into this dimension is located in a star system with a single planet. Any more information is restricted.

Royal Palace Guard
The royal palace guard are taken from only the most elite of soldiers from around the empire. Every guard is armed with an energy spear. A gun that fires a very focused laser. The gun also doubles as a melee weapon thanks to the long blade attached to to the barrel. All guards are also given heavy shielding to better their chances of living.

You sure come up with the cool, technical things, most of which I wouldn't even dream of. :D

All you have to do is take one part "your knowledge of the universe"
Add three parts "what you want"
And fill in the remainder with "gobbledygook"
And tada! Instant pseudoscience! Ready in however long it takes you to type.

The gravity there must be a mess.

Impressive structure though , 730 kilometers of imperial glory hidden to the eyes of all but a few. It scares me a bit to imagine such a thing in real life.

The gravity would definitely be interesting. Especially around the edges.
Although if I had to guess, it would probably feel like walking up hill the further from the fortress you got.
