Big annoyance of mine is the hordes of players who apparently don't understand that tech level alone doesn't determine what you get to bring to a roleplay, and that the people running the roleplay also get to decide to what extent magic, anomalous forces, or tech level exemptions apply. Here's one o...

A universe where this doesn’t exist or I get to blow it up every day. Honestly, I'd like to blow up a society like that too. As a technophobe, that would basically be one of my fears realised. Also, to me, utopia implies constant progress toward a better society for future generations, not stagnati...

Humanity's dismantled the solar system and built a Matrioshka Brain around the Sun. Most of the population has voluntarily uploaded themselves into an endless, perfect series of virtual worlds, where scarcity and conflict are absent unless all involved consent. People can retreat to their own privat...

Here's a general question. How do you label or otherwise catagorize stars, planets and moons that your nation knows exist, but don't officially own? For example, LV-426 and 226 from the Alien series. Do you give official names like 'Acheron' or do they just receive some designating numbers and lett...

FTL? : Comms only. FTL travel just isn't possible in our canon. (Not that we'll stop others from RPing it.) We prefer travel via Einstein-Rosen bridges.
