Re: Art Thread (Concerns)

https://s1.postimg.org/bzhfwkvzj/behemoth.png Here is a super heavy lift vehicle, inspired by the Aldebaran . The teeny tiny cargo door on the illustrations shown in the link always bothered me, so I decided to try and draw my own version. The Behemoth class was a key player in the early phases of ...

It's a book cover for an imaginary novel in real life. Which sounds really strange when I put it like that.

Re: Timeline of Terran history (v1.3)

Well ultimately for this universe of yours, what is the main era? Is it the 21st & 22nd centuries or is it the later eras involving the Fang and wormholes and warp drives and so on? Honestly it depends on what kind of headspace I'm in at the time of writing. Writing about this century and the next ...

I haven't posted any of my random graphical crap up here in a while. Let's fix that.

Re: Timeline of Terran history (v1.3)

Version 1.3 is now up! It's been far too long. I can't remember all the changes I've made in the intervening months, but all the ones I've seen fit to put into this public release happen from the 23rd century onwards. Man, where have you been!? I've been working at my usual glacial pace. It's taken...

Re: Timeline of Terran history (v1.0)

Are this and this related? Because it sounds like they have connections. Well spotted. I wasn't intending a connection but I don't see why not. Leftovers of previous Ages of Chaos perhaps? Gotta say, the chaos stuff feels like it jars kinda in tone with the rest of the lore. As much as I'm looking ...

Dreams of Flesh and Metal

This piece is inspired by a dream I had last night, so apologies for the vagueness of the prose and any crapness. If I ever get around to it I'm thinking of perhaps expanding it and adding detail to it to make a fully-rounded story. It was one of those vivid dreams that sticks with you for a while a...

Re: Nova Mundi: 2100+ roll-call/discussion thread [OOC]

That's good to hear. Am I correct in remembering that you have offered to help out with the turn in the past? If so, is that offer still open?

In the interests of fairness, anyone else who would like to help out is of course invited to do so.

How many worldships are there? Is each worldship it's own nation?

I have to ask, why wouldn't the merchant class here attempt to also force modification of non-Bathysite species and cilivizations to be affected by empathy pheremones? It would allow them to more easily manipulate species to allow for easier or unfair trading. And why wouldn't the scholars also att...
