Background

Origins

The Pacific Traders were first founded by Samwise Serfphis sometime after the First World War. Samwise during the war was a small time merchant in the Pacific Ocean. After seeing the harrows that the first war brought he grew dissatisfied with the governments of the world and found refuels at the sea as many men have down over the ages. Choosing to forever live at the sea he changed the name of his boating company to the Pacific Traders.

In 1922 Samwise made a major discover. He had found the wreckage of few ships from the war wish had been sucked from a storm. Holding up the ship he had his men fix the ship up with part from each other and parts from their own ships. Being in the grip of the global depression and salvage rights as they are it was very simple for Samwise to be able to keep the right to these ships.

Armed with military caliber ships Samwise Traders were able to hold of with ease enemy force at sea. Be they pirates or some nation that did not wish that the Traders finish there delivery.

With this power, the Traders were able to make a profit in these trying times. The waters of the world were still a dangerous place. Meany Company and nation found the idea of being too able to ship some of their more sensitive good without the need of sending a proper military escort buss a good way to save money and allowed them to ship things they did not want people to know too much about. Samwise haven given up on the land did not care what they wanted him to ship so long as his people got paid.

With the first war over, the beings of the brake up of many of the great empires of the world, and the global depression it was not hard for Samwise to find people who were willing to forsake the old lives on land and take up a new one working for him among his Traders. With more and more men coming to his employ was Samwise able to pull up more ships and even build up some of his own. As the depression came to an end the Pacific Traders were so power that they were able to gain control of some of the smaller island scattered threw out the Pacific that no one had taken claim to yet. This island the Traders turned into giant ports were they could stop there ship and do some maintains on their ship. Some people among the Traders like Samwise shows to never leave their ships even while at the Traders own ports. Still the majority of the Traders took their time at this island port to rest up and enjoys some things that one could not get at the sea.

When Stalin made his move and started the Second World War this became the Traders' big moment. As new more strange weapons were lost in sea battle in the Pacific campaign the Trades sat and waited to be able to come in after the battle and pick up the scraps of technology that were left behind. With some jerry rigging and a lot of luck were the Traders able to create there starting blocks of their weapon technology. Threw out the war the fledgling Allied nation were in need of supply and a places to dock there ships. The Traders were happy to provide this and other services to the young Allied Nations--for a price of course.

When the war ended the Traders were in an excellent position. The war had field there coffers, gotten them some new technology, and a lot of new ships that they recovered from the ocean flower. The best part though was the new cold war that was brewing between the Allies and the Soviets. With the tension many nation and companies need to ship thing across the ocean but did not have the money to have their own protective force created or could not offered to call on the major powers for support for such miner task found the Traders to be there best option.

When the Third World War broke out the Traders found themselves in a hard spot. With the Empire of the Rising Sun making their move the Pacific effectively became a massive battleground. Such a large three sided war made it difficult to operate. Still, like the other wars the Traders ended up ahead. Adding bit of the Empire's own tech which they were able to salvage from sunken empirical ships. As the war end the Traders found themselves in a much tenser place. With Three major powers in the Pacific and many smaller power people like the Traders were in higher demand than ever before

Gameplay Style and Development

Mechanics

Build Mechanic

All Traders buildings are built at the Drydock. All Trader buildings are in fact boats wish can be deployed at any sport on the map that they can get to. They can be deployed or undeployed any were. That means that the Dock Bar can be placed in the water though it will have limited use there. If undeloyed the building can not be used. So any power plant that is undeployed won’t give out power. Being Merchant Marines the Traders have all there ship with some sort of weapon. Buildings have weak weapons but can be used to hold of a few troops. This makes the Traders buildings cost more but make up for that with there mobility and weapons.

Tier Mechanic

There Tier system is link into there power system. Tier one power is created by the Decal Engine Platform. When the Dock Bar is built can the Hydro Platform be built. After the Hydro Platform is built Tier 2 units and structures are available. After the Salvage Yard is finished can the Solar Line Platform be built. After the Solar Line Platform is built are Tier 3 materials available.
