The Empire is a faction from the Warfleets: FTL universe. As of December 12, 2023, the Warfleets: FTL setting was integrated into the Grimdark Future setting and the original Warfleets: FTL factions were removed.

Background Story

The Empire is the most powerful human race in the galaxy, with impressive fleets of technologically advanced ships. Thanks to a strong economy and millennia of military experience, the Empire has managed to spread even to the furthest frontiers of the galaxy, claiming new regions at an astounding pace.

Before the civil war started, the seemingly peaceful Empire was seen as a great example of what a species could achieve through unity, and was revered by other species in the galaxy. Little did they know that under the veneer of “civilized” and “just” politics, ruthless tyrants were quietly executing all their competition.

Now that their cover is blown, the Empire is on a mission to crush all opposition, and they’re not afraid to take innocent lives if that’s what needs to be done.

It didn’t take long for regular civilians all across the galaxy to rise up and form their own army among the confusion, and the diverse Alliance of militias have taken up arms to take down the Empire. Meanwhile, the legendary Marauder fleet Morka’s Mob play both sides, attacking Empire ships to sell parts to the Alliance, whilst also wrecking Alliance ships on the way out to sell parts to the Empire.

Legendary Fleets

  • The Golden Shield - Only the most renown of admirals get the honor of serving as part of the Golden Shield, which serves as the private escort of the empire’s high leaders and diplomats.
  • The Pride of Tyria - During the great frontier wars, an empire fleet stranded behind enemy lines had to fight off the enemy whilst outnumbered 10 to 1. Those brave survivors became known as the Pride of Tyria.
  • The Penal Fleet - Those that defy the rule of the empire are given the choice of life in prison, or to serve as part of the Penal Fleet. These poor souls are pushed to their limits, making for a formidable battle force.

Play Style

Mighty battle ships armed to the teeth are the backbone of these Empire fleets, with formations of smaller ships providing cover to ensure they can get the job done. Equipped with flux reactors, they are able to overcharge their systems in order to achieve incredible feats, even if at the cost of interior damage.
