Hello Potential Emperor!




I HAVE GOOD NEWS AND BAD NEWS:
The bad news is that around three hundred years ago, in the year 4500, the Orionic Empire, which united the Southern Milky Way under one peaceful, prosperous, corrupt and somewhat democratic state was destroyed in a massive collapse caused by an invasion of aliens and exiled human groups from her northern borders, who in turn were pushed there by the invasive Zuukid empire, which has since collapsed. This resulted in centuries of war, resettling of the various peoples displaced by the warring empires, famines, planetary apocalypses, and all that good stuff.

The good news is that the worst of it is over, the peoples of the galaxy have settled, and now YOU can forge your very own galactic empire! Will you try and rule the galaxy with an iron fist, or shall you bring the Milky Way to a new height of enlightenment? The choice is yours!

STATE OF AFFAIRS:
In the wake of the Imperial Collapse and subsequent Migration Period, warlords and dictators found new powers and strength, being able to protect their citizens in ways more scrupulous leaders could not. That said, many of the post-Orion states modeled themselves after the former empire, both politically and militarily. In the time of the Orionic Empire, who made humans and subhumans the most populous species in the galaxy from their capital on Mars, those who could not properly align themselves with Imperial values were exiled, either forcibly or voluntarily, to the outer reaches of the empire, where there own cultures began to form. Additionally, many of the alien non-imperial entities had formed their own cultures, as well as cultures and systems existing alongside the imperial ones. During the migration period, the non-imperial groups were forced into cohabitation with the imperial ones. The Zuuks, the peoples of the former empire, are now splintered in their leadership, but have also greatly influenced formal Imperial space.

RP RULES/IDEAS:
If you hadn't guessed by now, this is an idea for an Advanced NRP set in space. I want to leave this as sandbox as possible while also maintaining consistent lore and world building, so if you are at all interested, have any questions, or want to give any ideas, please let me know. I'm open to pretty much anything, and this includes the lore of the Orionic and Zuukid empires (including the name of the latter), and causes of the collapse and migration period.

I've got interest. I'm seeing a lot of cool ideas. The idea that instantly came to mind is a struggling series of systems operated by Humans. Basically space-ranchers and space-farmers. Something along those lines. There's a lot of visual stuff that I'm thinking about that can't properly go into words at the moment. Consider me among the interested if you manage to get this thing feet.

Until @Ekreture actually gets back to us with an answer, here's a thought.

The whole point of the RP is that the setting is supposed to be a Galactic Dark Ages analogue, right? Equivocal to Europe after the final fall of the Roman Empire. The big galactic Superpower has broken up, there's lots of revolt and unrest everywhere, and the tagline is all about *becoming* an Emperor in the big power vacuum.

In that vein, it would make sense if there were megascale structure remnants left over from that empire, but presently people might not be able to recreate them on their own. Does that work with what you had in mind @Marquise?

Would it be alright if I take Earth to myself or is it off limits?

If there's still interest in this, I wouldn't mind trying my hand at being a space Visgoth that learns civilization.
