An extensive empire based on Zyzyx in the Vezex binary system. I want to create the planet, system, race, imperial history and imperial military. Brand new, and I don't know how to sign up in the new website. Could you also maybe tell me how to get signed up?
What's on your mind?
I was hoping that I could create a new Earth. One that never got hit by aliens and taken from humans. I have a current map I am working for the world. The purpose of this is to give Humanity a real chance in the space race by creating a world which they can barely survive on, and its their own home.
the societies of Earth have thrived in the new golden age of technology and science. But it has not done so without loss. Due to society's constant need to expand, the world has become dark as minerals, resources, fuels, etc. have become less common and new means have had to be made to continue their existance in the modern world.
Overpopulation has lead to society's quick advancements in both medicine and food production, but has left its scars through diseases and plagues such as "The American Flu". Oil and gas prices climb as petroleum and oil reserves quickly dry up, rationing in these products as well as the development of synthetic fuels have lead to new advancements in science, but has left the world economy in rough to poor shape.
Fusion Energy plants have replaced traditional power systems, allowing cities to grow at a quicker rate and allow the overpopulation to become such an issue in the modern world. Health Food Organizations, during the rationing period, worked productively to reduce and create a decline in fast food, causing the near end of the obsesity epidemic that had risen over the first half of the Twenty-First Century.
Environmental Agencies have been trying over the passed few years to stop pollution, but only recently have recieved the acknowledgement and accolades needed to gather funds.
Thus Earth has begun to rot as civilization rolls over the natural world. Humanity has all agreed that it is time to explore the stars and in 2108, the Earth Humans will, if you let me.
Please reply when you can, thank you.
The great rampager, scientifically known as Bipestank rex, is a large predatory animal living in the north-east portions of the Jaklean supercontinent, located on the planet Glaucus. It is 49 feet long in the largest verified specimens, and over 23 feet tall, but is usually around 36 feet long and 16 feet tall. It has three limbs, two of which are legs, and a single arm coming out of the chest to use as a balance. It also has a long tail as a balance, and a large skull with jaws filled with sharp teeth, with a beak-like structure at the end of the snout. They have analogues of whiskers located on the sides of their heads, meant to sense where the wind is blowing to avoid being detected by prey. They have two nostrils and four eyes as well. They can smell blood from several miles away and see cleary at distances of up to 500 feet. However, they do have one weakness. They have one weakness though. Their spinal cords are rather fragile for their size, so if it trips over, it will often get killed by a broken spine. Great rampagers are not sapient.
Yeah, you can pretty much guess what creature I based this off. The Latin name means "bipedal tank".
So, here's my pitch. Any and all feedback is appreciated. Epsilon V is a Desert planet orbiting Monocerotis α, a class F main sequence star with a smaller, class M red dwarf Monocerotis β tidally locked to it’s larger companion. The Monocerotis System is located in the Scutum-Centaurus arm of the Milky Way Galaxy. Epsilon V is the largest of the six planets orbiting around the Monocerotis binary set, with the others being titled Epsilon I, II, III, IV and VI. The gas giant Epsilon VII existed as well, but it’s orbit slowly decayed until it finally spiraled off into space. Epsilon V is a harsh environment, mainly due to the extreme heat and large amounts of radiation output by Monocerotis α. The poles are a frozen mixture of water and ammonia, with small oceans seperating them from the mainland. Despite the hostile environment, sentient life has managed to evolve on (and below) the surface of the planet.
The main intelligent species are the Metu, a quadrupedal race that lives mainly underground. Metu have three fingers, as well as opposable thumbs. Their fingernails are long, very sharp and shaped so that they can be connected to each other to form a spade, of sorts. The adult Metu have a scale-like epidermis composed of an iron oxide, which is developed by consuming the abundance of hematite and magnetite found underground. Metu cannot actually process the Iron, however, and if excess ore is consumed it will be regurgitated. These scales protect against predators, as well as the majority of the solar radiation output by the dual stars. They slowly flake off and have to be replaced. The Metu have developed three eyes, with the bottom two seeing the average spectrum and the upper third eye seeing the infrared spectrum. This third eye is mainly used for underground vision. It is closed aboveground, as the excessive heat energy would blind or otherwise damage it.
The Metu have developed FTL warp drives recently, but they are still rather unreliable. Instead, Ion engines are much more commonly used. The Metu have minor outposts on Epsilon III and VI that are used for mining and research. Epsilon IV was deemed unsuitable for colonization due to it’s extremely thick atmosphere. The Epsilon II base project was under construction, but was cancelled when an extraordinary large blast of radiation from Monocerotis β shut down all communications between the base and Epsilon V. The Epsilon II incident was heavily censored by the government, as they refused to send a shuttle to see if the colonists had survived.
Metu culture is heavily based around tradition and order. The Metu who violate the code of laws are first given a warning, then incarcerated, and if their behavior continues exposed to the worst shame possible for them. This shame is where the convicted are forced to let their scales flake off completely, leaving them an outcast from society and forced to stay entirely underground at risk of dying from radiation. These people are referred to as the Etnon Pellum, or the scaleless ones. If the crime committed is severe enough, the felon will immediately become one of the Etnon Pellum. Occasionally, Etnon Pellum band together and form their own settlements, although they are quickly stamped out by the main government. Religion is also oddly absent from Metu society, although small pockets of worshippers exist on the fringes of civilisation.
The Metu have a long and occasionally sad history. One event in particular, roughly translated to the Month of Tears, was an attack by a group of Etnon Pellum who detonated a bio-weapon in the Meto capital city, Kazisirea. The contagion released caused the scales of the Meto to solidify, leading to asphyxiation and death. In only a month, it killed about two thirds of the entire Metu population, including the entire population of Kazisirea. The capital is still contaminated, and quarantined by the government to insure a pandemic of that volume never happens again.
The Metu originally started as a large amount of tribal groups, which constantly warred and squabbled with each other. Eventually, the largest tribe decided the Metu race needed to be unified and went on a crusade, converting and absorbing any other city-states or tribes they encountered. This group eventually evolved into the modern Metu government. Although, some of the other tribes still exist, far away from the main civilization. They rarely encounter each other, but when they do they keep their distance. Ion engines were discovered accidentally by the renowned scientist and researcher Etul Taelou. He was attempting to develop a more efficient energy generator, but discovered that by bombarding xenon gas with electrons, it generated a large amount of ions when the xenon atoms changed polarities. This discovery sent the Metu's technology decades in the future, as well as sparking a new age of space exploration.
The Metu government is structured with a council of five holding power over the entire government. These five Metu are selected by the citizens via voting. Another council member is selected when an existing member dies. Council members can be voted off the council with an appropriate reason and a majority vote. This is a rare occurance, however, and is usually a punishment for extreme power abuse and other severe crimes. This has only happened once in Metu history, when M'lai Sunghali was forcibly expelled from the council for transferring large amounts of government resources to his personal reserves.
The Metu race have a large but rather primitive military. Almost every non-essential able Metu citizen can be drafted if need be, although this has not happened as of yet. The military technology of the Metu is rather primitive, however, with tubular combustion weaponry still being widely used. Research into energy-direction technology for military uses have been started, but it is still rather early in development. Many Metu citizens are unhappy with the current military policy, but due to the government structure have no choice but to obey the laws.
Below are some guidelines to creating a pitch:
- Create a separate discussion when making your pitch. Please do not post your pitch on an existing discussion.
- Make your pitch as detailed as you can. Avoid any sort of loose ends.
- Pitches are only required if this is your first time using this wiki. If this is not your first time, the Planning Board would be a better area to discuss your ideas.
- Please take a look at the various guides to get an idea of what we expect.
What not to pitch
- Creations that bear a high resemblance to another science fiction/fantasy work. That means no fan fiction either.
- Societies that idealize your own personal beliefs. This also includes demonizing societies that are against your beliefs.
- Ideas with no scientific basis.
- Portraying Earth or humanity as the most important of all in the entire universe.
Well, I've at last got around to writing this. I hope there is enought detail, if not, please say and I'll try and add to it!
The Mivár are an anceint reptilian-like race which live in the Riivek 12 system, which is located in the Andromeda Galaxy. Despite there age, because of Riivek 12's distance from any other star, they do not have interstellar space travel, ramaining relatively unknown. The Mivár are a land-dwelling race, being to heavy to swim and they never devolped any type of boat. They originate from the second furthest planet from there sun, Senth. Senth is a warm planet with a temperature of around 20 C in the winter and 32-40 C in the summer. Shortly after the Mivár invented spaceflight, they conquered the planet Krydo, which is now the most populated of the three planets. There are two quite distinct sub-races of the Mivár, the Sygols and the Midaé.
They are the most technically advanced of the two sub-races and the youngest. They stand at around 6-7 foot tall and they are the most water-hating of the two. Despite being the most advanced, the Sygols are incredibly jealous of the Midaé for the telepathic abilities and numerous wars have been fought between the two sub-races. They number around twelve billion, of which 78% live on Senth.
The oldest of the two sub-races, the Midaé are a proud people. They have immense telepathic power, one in every twenty-five having the ability to read others minds and on in thirty the ability to completely destroey lesser persons brain. They are nearly twice as numerous as the Sygol with near to twenty billion.
This is just a general outline. I've not completely formed the history yet.
- The Battle of Senth: The battle which started the War of Two Armies. It was the first major confrontation between the Sygol and the Midaé.
- Launch of the first space ship: The launch of the 'Sky Explorer' could have given cthe Sygol an immense advantage over the Midaé, except for the fact that a Midaé spy copied the documents and specs for the ship and sent them on to the Midaén capital, Ríl.
- Encounter with the Alekodons: Pursued by a Midaén light cruiser, the scout ship 'Sky Searcher' made a forced landing on the planet Rguil, only to be attacked by strange creatures.
- The First Space War: After lengthy discussion and arguing the Sygolian government ask for aid from the Midaé. Soon after a combinded fleet of twenty-four Sygolian ships and nineteen Midaén ships take off and head for Rguil.
- MODERN AGE

Senth: Home planet to the Mivar and the fourth largest planet. It is 1.233338 times larger than earth and it has an average temperature of 25C,
Rguil: A small, watery planet inhabited by numerous species.
This was originally a race I did for the 40k fanon, but I thought I would bring it here. Anyway, basically the Xellok are a parasitic worm race that takes control of hosts, it is then able to mutate its host by splicing its DNA with the hosts DNA. These worms are all connected through a hive mind like structure centered around a queen Xellok, the queen Xellok lays the first eggs for the Xellok worms to hatch which then reproduce once they are inside a host. When the worm takes over its host it begins pumping tiny spores into the hosts blood steam and saliva, if this blood or saliva gets inside an un infected body the spores begin to rapidly feed on the hosts protein in order to grow into a full size worm. This new worm than takes over its host and repeats the process.
This pitch is pretty rushed I know, but Its like mid night and Im falling asleep, I will provide a much more in depth description tommorow.
Skyridge is a moon orbiting a brown dwarf which is part of a trinary star system. The system is located in the Large Magellanic Cloud and consists of five moons orbiting the brown dwarf, as well as three other inhabited planets. Skyridge is a world with high atmospheric pressure and great levels of oxygen and CO2. Skyridge is the homeworld of a minor spacefaring race, the Zi'vani, who have colonized several planets in their system and are sending sleeper ships to other planets. They haven't yet made contact with the other warring powers of the Magellanic Cloud. They are advanced compared to our 21st century, though not as much compared to larger powers in the GC Omniverse.
This is a WIP, so please let me know if you like it. I don't know anything about them besides what I have here. Should I add more information than there is here?
