Each race in Conquest 2: The Vyrium Uprising brings to the game a different set of tactics and abilities.  Each of these races are entirely unique and alien to each other.  Although the Terrans are clearly familiar to us, the other races are each designed with their own technology and their racial outlook which their technology reflects.  These outlooks give them different methodologies and tactics.


The mysterious Celareon are believed to possess no corporeal form at all, but are actually pure energy within an armor casing. Celareon ships are highly advanced hit-and-run craft. They are fast and stealthy, and even their tricks have tricks up their sleeves. Utilizing artificial wormholes to launch crippling stealth operations, the Celareons possess an array of defensive batteries to squelch invaders.




The Mantis are an insectoid race best described as predatory. They are volatile and expansionist, with a low tolerance for coexistence with other species. Mantis fleets depend on overwhelming numbers. They lean heavily on light-hulled cruisers so heavily that even scout ships house fighter wings. Devious and brutal, the Mantis hammer advancing fleets with a devastating range of attacks and overwhelming resource efficiency.



The Terrans are a diplomatic race intent upon exploring the heavens for new life, new worlds, and new technologies. The most balanced of the four civilized races, the Terrans have very capable small, medium, and large ship-to-ship combatants; long-range strike capability; and high-tech special weapons. A robust fleet gives the versatile Terrans superior firepower in head-to-head conflicts.




Little is known about the reptilian Vyrium. The location of Vyrie, their homeworld, remains a mystery, but it is rumored to be a planet of vast, shallow oceans, dry caverns and deserts. The cold-blooded Vyrium are probably descended from Cobra-like serpents that thrive on similar planets across the galaxy. Most reptilian species rarely gather in groups, and the Vyrium seem to be no exception. They appear to be a race of individuals in isolation.

Despite their isolation as a race, the Vyrie seem to be a strong, combative culture not unlike a Roman republic. They seem bent on galactic conquest, though their exact intentions are not yet known. Recent attacks on Human and Celareon outposts have been swift and merciless, leaving no survivors.

The Vyrium seem to admire strength and power above intelligence. Positions of power among their people go to the strong: the mightiest warriors who have proven themselves in battle. But it is also said that the Vyrium possess an untainted nobility and guilelessness. Despite their warlike nature, they might make valuable allies. But this same nature might also be their greatest weakness. Their thirst for glory could well lead to their destruction.
