Still very much a work in progress, but here's what I've been working on.

OCC is now officially up: roleplayerguild.com/topics/166859-gal…
Nation sheets go here. Please acquire approval from a a GM before posting here.



Credit goes to Willy for actually making the sheet outline for us, and for those of you who don't know, click raw and copy paste the bbcode into docs and type it in that way so it's already formatted when you post it in guild! Thank you.
History has a sickening way of repeating itself. So many species survived the threat of annihilating themselves via nuclear war on their homeworlds, only to point those same weapons at their neighbors the moment they colonized space. Quaint ideas such as fascism and monarchism reappeared. War, it seems, is inevitable regardless of the era.

Welcome to Galaxy Aflame! Here we have a prety large and spacious galaxy full of story and adventure, but let's get to the specifics. There are currently three known civilizations (since you guys have yet to make any [not your fault, there are no sheets :O].) One civilization that I will call the Feds (Sigma), one I will call the Empire (Spoon) and one I will call the Daisan Order, or Order (Gold).

So for many generations there had been rumors of entire civilizations disappearing in the outer rim of the galaxy, the causes were attributed to legends of internal strife, civil wars, and classic hubris... but what we of the shallow space didn't know was that none of that was true. Many years ago a species set off to protect their own chance of survival and turned on their political allies and friends, their war machines revved and factories were erected. Soon a massive droid army took over all neighboring systems, with each planet being cored to build even more war machines or colonized through intense terraforming, indigenous species were annihilated. Entire systems and civilizations have been stripped and cored, or blasted to such a degree they are unrecognizable. Dead planets began popping up, and crazy contraptions began to spread from the rim... and we had no idea.. until five years ago.

On an Urban planet owned by the feds, a quiet summer morning heralded a event that would shake the galaxy. As people commuted to work, hollered out their goods, and talked with their friends and family, the Deep space menace came without warning. A massive metallic spike ripped through the atmosphere, scarring the plumb morning sky with streaks of fire. As it crashed into the urban center a massive explosion erupted and soon more spikes plummeted from space, pounding the planet. Those that survived the impacts soon realized that these spikes were factories, and they had already begun pumping out terrifying droids of horror and battle, the planet was quickly conquered. Only after the fall of a few more planets in a similar fashion did the Feds get a name for their antagonist: The Daisan Order... the label clearly printed on the breastplate of a destroyed battle droid.

Quickly the Empire sprung into action, with it's impressive armada and massive military backing the feds the two managed to hold off the massive droid hordes. For five years the two civilizations slowed the process of the Order, but now civil war has broken out in the Empire: will this be the final push the Daisan order needed to secure it's place in Total Domination, or will other civilizations rise to meet the challenge of a foe so dangerous and so mysterious, we don't even know what they look like? And what of elsewhere in the galaxy? Is the Order alone in its homicidal tendencies or are their others that share its aspirations of galactic dominance?

Rules
1) Don’t be a child. Seriously, if you can’t act like a reasonable human being then this simply isn’t the RP for.
2) You are expected to post 1-2 times every 7 days (Collabs count, just make sure all involved are given credit in the post somehow). If you do not make a post within 14 days with no prior warning you will be dropped from the RP.
3) This is an advanced RP. I expect you have to correct grammar and spelling in your posts, at the very least. One or two mistakes per post is fine, and expected, but if I see ten “teh”s in your post we will have a problem.
4) Please don’t join if you are going to disappear after one or two posts. You know who you are.

You bastard! lol
A quick update: I'll be working on getting the sheet skeleton and OCC up after lunch. I should have both ready to go in a few hours.
Here's the discord channel: discord.gg/S6sgW7t
@DarkspleenOf course I am interested to join to a space NRP.
Any plotbunnies or setting outlines we should know? Discord channel to discuss?
I have several faction ideas at hand which I can switch on demand. The intro seems to imply a sorts of "first contact" type of affair.


We'll be setting up a discord later today (unfortunately a number of plans have been made on my behalf for the day so I suddenly am lacking on free time). The short version is we don't have any huge plots outlined beyond what Guld posted. If you aren't interested in joining that mess you are free to place yourself elsewhere in the galaxy. Sigma, Guld, and I will be located in the galactic north for your reference.

Many of the various species and countries have been aware of each other for quite a while. For instance both the Ithican Empire (me) and Aurolian Federation (Sigma) has large human populations and share some alien populations. Of course if you wish to play in a first contact setting I would recommend playing as on the outer rim.

A word on tech. I'm not going to limit what players can have unless it seems way unbalanced (so feel free to have psi-ops, mechs, etc, etc). The exception to this is I won't be allowing WMDs that can destroy planets or make them uninhabitable. We want epic ground battles to go along with our space battles.

Anything I missed?

Welcome to Galaxy Aflame! A space opera universe. This is a universe of psionics and telepathy, large capital ships slugging it out as fighters tear at each other in the space between, a world of mechs and battle droids and knights armed with swords of plasma.
