Black Prophecy is a fast-paced 3D real-time combat space MMO with state of the art visuals.
Both the Player-versus-Players combat and an exciting storyline in a rich universe are important aspects of the game.¬ Next-generation graphics
Black Prophecy uses the latest in graphics technology to produce breathtaking visuals.
¬Fast-paced action combat
Black Prophecy is more action-oriented than a traditional space simulation.
We are trying to avoid long travel times or other activities where the player isn't
really doing anything.
¬ Exciting Player vs. Player combat
Black Prophecy allows players to organize big PvP battles and also
offers varied PvP missions.
¬ Captivating Story
Black Prophecy's universe, story and background has been created by
the award-winning Sci-Fi author Michael Marrak.
¬ Modular ship design
Player ships are not sold as whole, but instead consist of modules like cockpits,
wings, engines etc. All these modules are available in different shapes and sizes,
which allows the players to customize their ships.
¬ Item modification system
In addition to the modular ship design, players can also further customize
their ships by adding modifications to their ship's modules and weapons.
¬ Modular clan station system
Player clans can build clan stations that are expandable through a module system.
Different modules add different functionalities to the station.
¬ Resource system
Clans can fight each other to conquer resource stations.
¬ Award and medal system
Similar to an achievement system, players can earn medals and awards
for performing specific tasks.
¬ Tactics system
Players can learn and execute breakneck flight maneuvers.
¬ The Tyi
The Tyi-protectors were created after the first species wars and are
the second superhuman species besides the Genides.
Contrary to their genetically manipulated arch-enemies, they have completely
devoted their bodies to cybernetics (at first as part of the project, later of their own will).
The trigger for the cybernetic project on Sabiador was its inhabitants'
increasing fear of a retaliatory strike by the Genides that surpassed them both
physically and mentally. The designation Tyi [pronounced Tai] is an abbreviation
for Tactical Yeomen Inhabitants (T.Y.I.).
Almost a century after the creation of the first Tyi-protectors, the burning desire
for independence awoke in this new human species that was already in the millions –
it peaked in the so-called cybernetic exodus. Many of the Tyi created on Sabiador
traveled through space and founded the now powerful colonies Atebathos,
Murna and Irata IV.
The Tyi have superhuman strength and endurance. They are resistant to radiation,
have independent bloodstreams as well as backup organs, speak all languages and
are true multitaskers. They also gather and process data at an increased rate.
¬ The Genides
To better deal with the unusual and sometimes hostile environments in space
and on the colonial planets, the colonists started long ago to manipulate selected
test subjects physically and sometimes psychically. The initial successful experiments
were probably carried out on colony ships shortly before the Second Diaspora.
Depending on preference, the manipulations took the form of cybernetic implants,
technological extremities and artificial organs, while others preferred to restrict
their studies to the many possibilities of biogenetics.
The graceful Genides were the first of the two new human species to be created on Sabiador.
They need virtually no sleep, their wounds heal quickly and they are capable of telepathic communication. Most of them are also resistant to illness, their thought processes are
faster, they can hear in ultrasonic and infrasonic frequencies and have a long life expectancy.
After the first Species Wars and the expulsion of the Genides from Sabiador,
six million refugees made their new home on the planet Delta Pavonis II (d-Pav II).
The Genides renamed the planet Geneera and developed into a considerable commercial
and economic power.
The new generation of Genides are aesthetically pleasing.
Their heads and bodies are almost entirely hairless (apart from the eyebrows – retained
for aesthetic reasons), as they consider body hair an evolutionary irrelevance.
Genid society is based on a feudal, pre-modern, aristocratic culture with a heavy
emphasis on military organization in the face of the constant threats that it faces
from the Jadd Baran and the Tyi.
