Re: Hello there

Eww, it's an imouto. Regardless, welcome to the Forums. It's a bit slow as of late, but I wouldn't trade this place for anything else in the world, it taught me everything I know about Worldbuilding. While we have our joint project, may you can develop your own setting here outside of the chaos of D...

Re: General Info, Q&A, etc.

I just realized something: with the Tyxan penchant for dropping bioweapons, viruses, bio-engineered creatures, and etc onto targets, even doing things like engineering those Tyxan hybrids, what if humanity never actually saw an actual Tyxan? I'll have to dive back into my old writings to see what I...

The Man, the Myth, the Legend himself! I love the weirdness of this whole bio that is both strange yet sounding so seemingly mundane. The timeworn noospheric substrate, the ancient dreamcrypt, the cognovaults! I've been looking at European comics recently and the closest thing I can even compare thi...

How big are they here generally?

That, and to justify the tactical use of small starfighters rather than boring, robo-controlled drones. Starfighters sort of become like gunboats around Jump Gates. How big are they here generally?

Re: So I've written an SF novel published on Amazon...

Damn that's impressive. Do you tend to write as you go or do you plan every little detail? The amount of stuff in the Undiscovered Frontier stories are quite detailed, so I'd be very impressed if you wrote this stuff on the fly.

Yeah, the Carnemicum are relatively weak, but make up for it with dirty tricks. The Carnie Technical is mostly focuse...

If you're still working on this, it might be a good idea to give an overview of the general types and categories of units/models in your hypothetical skirmish wargame.

Invictus said: I do see what you mean by the Carnemicum, because they do read like they're from a later sourcebook in a 90s RPG line, which obligates them to have their own special rules and subsystems to make them stand out from the starting factions. It's very SLA Industries. Carnemicum was total...
