The lights are on
A writing group where everyone writes in the same world(s). Anyone's welcome to join!
As you might have guessed, I'm just throwing these out here for people to work on. I have web access for the time being, so I'm making the most of it. Anyway--sci-fi world. I'm not as good at building sci-fi worlds, so this will be more up to you. Will there be faster-than-light travel? A human dominion? Eternal war? You guys/gals get to decide!
tylorempire.wikia.com/.../Tylor_Empire_Wiki An old project a friend and I once tried, but never finished.
I'm not suggesting that we use that, I just thought it might amuse you.
Though I do like my Gerand species... tylorempire.wikia.com/.../Gerand
That actually looks awesome! If you don't mind, that would make at least one great empire.
Ok, fine with me! The Great Tylor Empire! How about this: Three (or more) warring empires trying to take over the galaxy, and the alliances and betrayals involved, very space opera-ish
Oooh, even better idea! Each person that gets involved in this gets their own empire, and they write the stories of what happens in that empire, while keeping galactic continuity, especially with battles and conquests.
That would be really awesome! So my empire could be very warhammer 40kish, and someone else could do like the Republic, etc.
Tylor Empire is very economy-based, and the military is entirely funded by the private sector. It's controlled by the government, but the private sector keeps a tight reign on it by threats of removing funding.
So, how big of a universe is this going to be? One galaxy? Multiple galaxies? Also, I invented a bunch of minor rival empires, and just wanted to make sure everyone was fine with me choreographing wars in my sector against my rivals, or if anyone else wanted to take over those pre-made empires. I'd prefer to keep them as my own because I've put a lot of time into developing them, but if anyone is struggling to come up with an empire of their own, I'd gladly give them one of mine along with their backstory and civilization.
We should set up a Skype group for this like the Star Wars offshoot is doing for theirs. My Skype account is sorryjzargo.
Well, so far it seems like this world will be just Caudex vs. sorryjzargo.
Yeah, it does look like it's just us. But more will come. I hope.
As for galaxies and empires, if you have ideas, go ahead and use them. We can say there are many universes or something.
So you said your empire will be Warhammer-ish? I'm not overly-familiar with the universe, but I know the basics (I watched the history in a minute video).
Also, I think multiple universes is too big. How about a galaxy per empire? That way they can have their own culture and everything. So, is this future sci-fi, or fantasy sci-fi, with earth not involved.
