Yeah, I love it too! But why "Ages"? Why not just "Age"?

Ok I've pretty much worked out the story and what was stolen and how it'll be turned into a doomsday weapon... I'm also going to create a new group that is doing all this as i don't think any of the exsisting ones would be the master mind but the black hand and Tansari are involved aswell as other pirate groups. I'll go into more detail once we've finished phase 5.

Now we're on Phase five if there are any questions that haven't been answered yet now is the time to ask them. I am also working on a database for this so all the info is organised with help from Atomic_Jedi.

Vote Time!!!
Ok I've personally selected the most popular Name choices and put them up... Everyone gets a single vote and you can't vote for your own option(i only selected ones that weren't specific to the Story but to the universe)... In the event of a tie we'll either Re-vote or see if we can do a merge.

1)Seperated Worlds (sm2k)
2)Starfields: The Second Age (Sm2k)
3)Stars (WJ)
4)Empires in the Stars (WJ)
5)Star Frontier/StarFront (JL)
6)Terra Novum (JL)
7)Seperated Galaxies (JA)
8)A Divided World(JA)
9)Interstellar(S)

And my Vote goes to......
5)Star Frontier/StarFront(JL)

I'll vote for # 4 Empires in the Stars by WJ. Oh, just so you know I'm pretty much done with my Empire's Military, except for explanations and some minor details. Just thought I'd let you guys know. I'll probably create two Independant groups, if that's still doable?

Edit: - Oh yeah, thank you again Jasra for your assisstance!

Name: Kioshi Poachers
Type: Pirate/Poachers
Location: Independent Territories
Description: A pirating and poaching group so confident, it goes down onto the colony planets without care or heed, often taking wildlife illegally off world. They've even infiltrated Apex's Iron Curtain, going to the colony world's surface and taking Apex's native Nopakrun.

Though most would think this kind of pirating doesn't bring much profit in, that is actually a false conception, this business bringing in huge profits; and with the lack of competition in this business, they are top at their game, and have enough money to build an empire sized armada.

They poach wildlife, on all planets that harbor wildlife, and in all empires. They have preforations towards Olympia, Apex, and Pharaz-Gil when it comes to which empire's wildlife they prefer to poach; though they capture most subjects alive, being worth more money that way, so it's really not poaching, though it's still considered it.

They have found Pharaz-Gil gets them the most profitable wildlife, the Myradin being rather intelligent, and terraforming. While Golems are deadly, rare, and just plain profitable in their own rights. Though Olympia provides the most expensive to attain, the Leviathan, often hard to attain due to the Poachers having difficulty in water poaching, and they often can't attain them alive, them being aggressive when attacked (I'm assuming) often resorting to just a dead specimen, though a live one is worth it's weight in money times ten.

Due to the difficulty of water poaching, they resort to the easier, most profitable empire to hunt on, Pharaz-Gil, because of this, Pharaz-Gil has asked for help from the other empires, including Apex and Haven, with containing this disturbance in their region. They hope that with the other empire's help that the poaching can be slowed, and eventually cut off. Then Pharaz would aid the other empires in doing the same.

The Kioshi Poachers are based on a moon near a gas giant, deep within Independent Territory, but they have outposts everywhere, their largest near Pharaz-Gil, right outside the Empire's boundaries.

Name: Galactic Enforcers
Type: Independent Intergalactic Law Upholdment Group
Location: Independent Territories Ė Main complex at center region
Description: A group very similar to pirate hunters, they patrol Independent Territories, and Empire Territories, if given permission by the empire's government. Though they're more professional than pirate hunters, and do other things, like crime investigating, checking on the assumed illegal actions of corporations, ect.

They were formed long ago by a rich family; it is unknown which empire the family came from though. They went into the Independent Territories and with their wealth created a hydroponics space station, though it started off small at first; it soon grew to massive size. The station became the hub for which people who wished to stop crime in the Independent Territories could come and train, in basis, it became a huge academy.

The main station is in the center, or close to it, of the Independent Territories. There are literally dozens of smaller stations, and outposts controled by the GE.

Due to the wealth of the family who operates the GE, they have a massive fleet, as big as a medium sized empire. This is also due to the small economy their stations bring in. They are also the bigest domestic security in known space. Because of the size of the space they patrol, a fleet of their size is often stretched out, though they can still gather in number, and retaliate well.

Because of there size, and reliance, along with the fact that they are not subject to an empire, they are rather well relied on to keep the space lanes safe, along with pretty much the whole of the Independent Territories.

They are very sympathetic to the Uprising on Apex, and will send excess donations to Pharaz-Gil, who also has sympathies for the uprising, though it's a well kept secret, Pharaz not wanting the supply lines to Apex cut off. Pharaz often takes these donations and smuggles it in to Apex as best it can, getting as much of the donation to the uprising as possible.

The GE is not one to be picky when it comes to choosing sides in a inter-empire conflict, though they have dislikes for the Apex government, and prefer Pharaz or Olympia over the other empires, even though they still try not to choose favorites.

Name: Ancients of Jendai
Type: Religion/Small Political Empire or Faction
Location: Lush forested planet in Independent Territory, close to Pharaz-Gil's border.
Description: Before the third world war on Earth, an international ship, with new technology was developed for the first attempt at colonizing Mars. People from many nations were chosen, 50 in all, to go to Mars, and test this new technology, and colonize it.

After launch, the first technology was put into testing, sleeper technology (or cryogenic stasis, which ever one was used on the colony ships.). The astronauts were put into this state so that they wouldn't age, so they could be full ready when they got to Mars.

They also had the first of hydroponics technology, which they would use to make Mars livable.

But something happened that caused the failure of the astronauts awakening. The ship, pilotless, went past Mars, and kept going, with transmissions being sent to earth every few moments, from this data, though earth was able to develop the better sleeper technology that was used in the colony ships.

Eventually, after many years, the craft exited the solar system, and transmissions were lost soon after. Earth was going to try for a second attempt at colonizing Mars, but the third world war happened, and all plans for it were transformed into the colony ships after the war.

But as for the ship itself, it drifted onward into space, for many years, and even as the colony ships took off from earth, the shuttle was entering the 'New Terran Galaxy' (filler name). It soon found its way towards the planet that would be inhabited by those aboard.

Without a pilot, it crash landed on the planet, but surprisingly no one was killed. Due to the crash 40 of the 50 people were freed from their slumber, the sleeper system failing within those people's sections. Though the other ten were still sleeping, and the others soon remembering their purpose and mission, didn't know how to awaken them without them being killed, so they saddly left them.

They soon found they were not on Mars, no, infact they were in a place very alien to them, a lush forested planet, with trees they hadn't seen before. After time they learned how to survive, and out of instinct, procreated. They grew slowly, and taught their children with all the knowledge they could, so that they would not turn out generations from then, as barbarions.

They stayed in the general visinity of the fallen ship, using the tools given to them to make a small village. Which grew, slowly, but surely as they found more and more resources with which to use. They soon found the hydroponics technology given to them to colonize Mars, they planted many of the unplanted trees of earth, not knowing what the concequences of their actions would be.

After many years, a new seed was formed from the cross breed of that planet's trees, that are found no where else in the galaxy, and earth's trees. This created a tree that had the ability to...think, like a computer more than anything, but it could think.

The decedents of those people who landed, had moved away from the ship, and all taught knowledge was twisted, and the stories of earth, and other things were thought to be legend. These people worshiped the trees, and learned all they could of them.

They soon took the 'First Seed', and kept it as the symbol of there people. The 'Second Seed' was the seed that became the tree which they so loved. The people soon evolved, as is strangely common in this galaxy, gaining two extra senses, and energy wielding capabilities, along with very long lives. With their new state of evolution, they were capable of understanding these semi-sentient trees.

They soon used the intimate knowledge these trees held to grow, and expand, making colonies, from trees, being able to grow them into shapes to make houses, palaces, bath houses, and much more.

They soon found the ship that crash landed, and a small grove of earth trees surrounding it. With their ever growing intelligence and technology they were soon able to awaken the sleeping people aboard. These people soon learned of these people, and those people learned of them, the people of the planet, the decendents, learned that the legends were true, and asked much of the astronauts.

The astronauts were eventually appointed rulers, and the first monarchy of the planet started. The family line of these people were called the Jendai, named after the name of the ship, the S.S. Jen-Rai, which is just a simple meaningless Japanese name. (Not meaningless as in stupid, or pointless, but the name itself has no specific meaning).

The grove and the ship sight were made into a shrine, and the planet was named after their rulers house, Jendai. Soon the trees were called Ancients, and by the other Empire's terms the people themselves are ancients, thus the naming of the religion, if it could be called that.

The 'Second Tree' soon grew larger than any other tree in the galaxy. The 'First Seed' was planted in a grove at the very bottom, inside of the 'Second Tree', which is the Jendai royal famalies palace. The 'First Seed' grew into the 'First Tree', the mother of the first generation trees, along with the 'Second Tree' as the father tree, though his age and growth into the planet's soil has made him rather dormant.

The 'First Tree' holds an untold secret, and most Jendains wish to keep it a secret. The people soon realised the power the first generation trees held, and with a newly discovered crystal they dubbed Rock Seeds, they soon built ships, with the trees planted inside, and inside the ships the trees would not become dormant, as they do if subjected to rooting into soil, and age.

Inside these ships, that look like they're made of wood, or rock, they (the trees) act as the processing units, or computers in laymans terms, for the ships, able to make massive self decisions. Each ship is hydroponicly endowed inside, being almost forested within. Often the wood-form-ships are grown from dormant Jendai Royal trees, or the trees that are only found on Jendai that are not Jendai Royal trees; these trees are called Rai-ans, earth trees are, as said considered Ancients along with the Jendai Royal trees, or are called Earthans.

All ships are powered by Rock Seeds, and the rock looking ships are formed from Rock Seeds, which they 'grow' them into. Rock ship interiors look more like rock gardens than hydroponics. With the advanced technology of the Jendai, and their capability to wield energy, they have developed a better form of laser technology, much more concentrated and devastating. All Jendai ships have energy weapons, and only a few special classes use other weapon types, though most ships can use missile type weapons, or bomb types.

The Jendai's ship weapons are compact, and hidden within the hull, often when attacking the guns seem to 'grow' from the ship itself, opening fire.

The Jendai are generally peacful, and have a small military, about the size of a small empire. Though their ships could far surpass even a large empire fleet. They're government is often a small political figurehead in the galaxy, not even considered an empire, and mostly ignored by the other empires, except Pharaz-Gil. But due to their secrecy, and quiet demeaner, along with advanced technology, they are often mistaken for a race bent on galactic conquest, only they're not.

The Jendai people are a nobalistic race, often proud, but humble, honest, and fair, but not afraid to enter into conflict if necessary; they're government, and their political heads, the Royal Family, are uncorrupt, and caring.

They have strong ties to Pharaz-Gil, due to the fact that Jendai was discovered by Pharaz-Gil before Pharaz-Gil discovered any other empire, and they found that they had the same ideals and honor system as eachother, making for a strong relationship. Pharaz is, at the moment, pushing for Jendai to be considered as a political head, at least a small one, that is not ignored, within the galaxy, so that they can have a higher seat in making galactic decisions, because Pharaz feels that they are often excluded from helping make decisions that may effect them (Jendai) drastically.

Name: Federation of Independent Colonies - FIC for short
Type: Independent Colonization Corporation
Location: Everywhere within Independent space - Main station on a fully colonized asteroid near Ashoka.
Description: Soon after the 'First Haven Treaty' a group of pioneers from all the empires set out to colonize an asteroid rich in vital minerals, they did so rather successfully. The resources were hardly ever sold or distributed, but rather used to create the complex that now envelops the asteroid, and fills the asteroid with halls and catacombs.

The group of people soon became the corporate heads of a large company, that creates colonies on worlds, and asteroids, and other inhabitable celestial bodies. They can't however just build in random areas, or else all of space would be filled with usless colonies. They have to get permission from the GE to get rights of jurisdiction to a solar system, then they have to pay taxation dues for each colony, or supply station they create, but each colony pays off with it's inhabitants soon moving in from all empires, and other corners of space paying there own taxes and dues for moving in.

They (the FIC) are taxed by the GE because the empires are having vital tax paying citizens move out of the empires, and declaring independence, then moving to these colonies.The GE see's that this is rather unfare, and would lead to economical problems in the empires, and they think it's only fare that the empires be compensated. So once dues are payed, the GE often gives the dues to the empires evenly, the GE taking a small percent for itself and it's efforts.

Most people who go to the colonies wish to live away from the hustle of the empire's laws, though the colonies have there own regulations, and though most would think that excessive violence occures with the lack of true laws, that is untrue, most people moving to the colonies wish to have peaceful lives, and they do.

The FIC also creates resupply stations, and resource stations, for ships to stop at and restock, this is where most of the violence occures though, often the GE has to have garrisons at these space stations.

Hope everything so far is up to standard and approved, starmark2k. Okay, I got the last one in.

Edit: - If anyone out there figures out where I got the ideas for these groups, keep quiet, and PM me if you wish to ask if you're right, I want it to remane unknown where I got the ideas for these.

@Master Archon- that's fine.

and here is the database site. you don't have to join it as we'll probably be doing the actual RP in dantooine but it as all the needed data organised into one of seven catorgories. Also still post any new groups here or send me a PM and i'll put them on the database(You will be credited).

Wow. I love those groups. I was mulling over a few ideas similar to the Galactic Enforcers but couldn't come up with anything workable. These groups are fantastic. And such nice long descriptions, too. Simply amazing.

Ok, I thought we might need a transport company. Sort of like a passenger airline company, but for space travel.

Pretoria-Ramen Expanded Spaceport Travel, Incorporated. (PREST, Inc.)
This is a private, civilian transport company set up by a group of businessmen from Olympia, Ashoka, and Haven. They have offices on all three planets and are looking to expand to Pharaz-Gil, and possibly even Apex. They have no real political allegiance to anyone, and operate under the assumption that travel between the Empires should be freely available (but not free!) to everyone. They specialise in passenger transport, both economy and luxury class, throughout known space using the established trade routes and gate system. They also transport post and light freight for a modest fee on a space available basis. Their motto is: The PREST way is the best way.

Suppose this will go under the Independent category since they don't have any particular allegiance to any Empire.

OK although the site was down for a bit and the vote was tied for now we will go with Starfields: The Second Age as the title.

And this is going to be the 'bad Guy' Group of the Upcoming RP...

Name: Equinox
Type: Terrorists
Location: Independant territories
Description: Equinox is unknown by all but those who are in it and even some of them beleive they are with one of many differant 'dummy' Groups. They have been hiding in the shaows for nearly 20 years since they were formed. Equinox started life in Haven not by crimminals or religeous fanatics but by the goverment, It was To be the force that could combat any threat to the planet. Comprised of the 12 greatest Psychics on the whole of haven they were trained to be the best soldiers, spies and assassins in the galaxy. Unfortunetly the training they received made them too powerful and far too loyal to the Republic of Haven. The Leader of the twelve, Dominic Krisco, Began to beleive in Havens superiority and beleived it should lead a united mankind. They began to work on bringing down the Goverments of all the other Empires but were quickly discovered by Haven's leaders, who put a stop to their activities. This is when Equinox left the Planet of Haven intent on one day returning and leading their homeworld to control all of The colonies.

Woohoo! It's the villains! And a transport company! Now all we need is a McDonalds and a Wal-Mart and we're good to go! *starts thinking up a good Wal-Mart type company*

Anyway, since we've got the basic premise behind the RP, and the universe is pretty well laid out, does this mean we need to start making characters? Or is there something we still need that I missed somehow? *hides*

(Those villains are perfect, by the way.)

give me a day or so to work out the finer details of the story and then we'll get into doing the characters... but because of what has been previously discussed characters will probably need to come from the Empires and not the I.T.

I couldn't help myself from jumping in and join the RP after no longer being prohibited to use my computer. (Don't ask)

Just a few thoughts and idea's for the community RP:

So, twelve psychics escaped from the military research facility where they have been trained and most likely genetically enhanced. The facility could be hidden somewhere on the desert continent of Haven, since there aren't any known hazards there except for the drought and there is little to no human presence there, which is perfect for a military base. (Can be anywhere else though^^)

Also, I think there should have been more than 12 of these psychics, just to get a bit of a story in the whole affair. Let's say there were about 18. After 12 of them went mad with thoughts of universal conquest by their home world, the government decided to pull the plug out of the whole project and merely stick to the Twenty as the planet's weapon. (Wildjedi's secret police) Unfortunately, the 6 who were still loyal to Haven and did not share the idea's of their fellow psychics, were killed in their sleep by the chief science officer in charge of the research facility. Among the 6 were two whom were particularly strong in telekinetic powers and one who was the strongest telepath. Their termination however, only increased the twelve's anger towards Haven's current government. To avenge the 6 who were murdered, they swore to take out the governments of all the empires and put their home world Haven as the single capital of all the empires.

After the escape of the twelve psychics, Haven's government quickly dispatched five men of the secret police to track down the twelve fugitives, call for backup and to take them out. Not wanting to reveal their secret experiments to the other empires, (which some of them despised as well) they did not inform the other empires simply because there was no reason to. Yet. The five men of the secret police however, were too eager to test their own powers and their overconfidence resulted in their downfall. When the advisors who were directly involved with the project heard of their demise, they reported the twelve as killed, just so they could preserve their own position in the government.(If the secret police failed, they would have been the ones responsible for the whole mess and would have been kicked out of the government.)

Twenty years after the twelve escaped, a few highly placed government officials from two (or more) empires were assassinated in the most unusual circumstances.(Unusual as in buildings being torn apart as if they were made out of paper, projectile weapons turning against their wielders etc. Use your imagination) When word of the assassinations reached Haven, the advisors realised their mistake and called in a meeting. (Haven only) In the meeting it was decided to ask each of the empires permission to search their zones for the missing twelve psychics. Their request was denied as a result of distrust by the other empires. (Other empires might be afraid of espionage or they simply donít trust Haven enough to allow them to.) After their request was declined, Havenís government made another request. They send a message to all of the other empires, telling them that they suspect that the assassinations were most likely committed by strong psychic criminals, who escaped their fate on Haven. Generously, they offer to put a small search party together of members from all the empires and search all of the empires for clues of the assassins whereabouts. This offer sounds fair to all of the other empires and they still arenít aware how much of a threat these assassins really pose. As a result, each of the empires sends one (or a few) of their most skilled people to be part of the search party. (This way they can keep an eye out on each other, making sure itís not another case of espionage etc.) The party members will be an expert in one particular skill (letís say, bounty hunter, explosive expert, pilot, whatever you can think of)


SoÖ..What do you guys think? Is it rubbish or is it useable?

(I Would really love to be one of the party members from Haven btw ^^)

Okay guys, I got all my Independent Territory groups typed up, descriptions and all, hope you guys approve and like them! As you probably noticed I did two more than I said I would!


"But in you...I see the potential to see the Force die, to turn away from its will..."
"You are beautiful to me, exile. A dead spot in the Force, an emptiness in which its will might be denied."
"But no Jedi ever made the choice you did. To sever ties so completely, so utterly, that it leaves a wound in the Force..."
"I would have killed the galaxy to preserve you...You are more precious than you know..."-now...it's verbatim!-A quote from Darth Traya (Kreia)

@ Master Archon- Just so you know the Empires have no juristiction within the Independant territories hence there would be no tax on a planet unless set by the person or persons who have claimed it in their own right.

@ TheExile_Hunter- It's very nice but i would prefer the doomsday weapon story... but it isn't entirely up to me.

@ Everyone- So can more people say which one they would prefer to do.

I guess there is something not entirely logical about all of the empires going on a wild goose chase for a bunch of assassins, psychics or not.

The doomsday weapon isn't such a bad idea together with the Equinox terrorist group.

Btw: What is are the currencies used in the empires? Do they all use the same or is it different for each one?
(Or do they trade doomsday weapons for 2 peanuts and a bar of chocolate in the new age?)

The reason for taxation would be to discourage massive colonization of I.T. space, which is probably not wanted; and is probably what the FIC would do if not monitered properly. But I see the point of the empires having no say on the I.T. , so I improved FIC description. Reread it, and tell me what you think of it now, and if it's improved.

Oh, and I say I like the doomsday idea, along with a small mix of 'The 12' idea.

Well i did a full overhall o the maps and i hope they look better... i also added all the ID planets and bases.

Empire Map

Independant Group Map

Note pirate groups (with the exception of the dark hand) are not connected to hypergates intenionally.

The FIC has control over the independant spacestations as they seem like the most logical group to control them. Also Master Archon will post the name of the planets in each FIC System.

I'll re-do the gate time when i have a chance as it does take time.

Okay, FIC System 1 has: Agape [Love], Bion [Life], Kleos [Glory], and Nikias [Victory].

This system was the first to come under juristiction of the FIC, the colonies being the oldest, and largest, being as large as metropolis's, it's colonists several generations old, some people have never seen the empires or cared to know about them, being born on these colonies and all. These are the few colonies that make decent trouble, but it's still rather peaceful comparatively.

FIC System 2: Agathon [Good], Doros [Gift], and Zopyros [Glowing].

These are the second oldest colonies, being around only several years less than the first four. These colonies are sub-metro (small metropolis) in size, and are less suceptable to trouble, though there still is some trouble. It's people aren't as rooted in these colonies as the first few, but they're still a few generations old, and are, as the first few, losing their heritage, forgetting what the empires are like, ect.

FIC System 3: Ajax [Mourner], and Erebos [Darkness].

These are the second youngest of the colonies, being around ten years older than the last colony. They're around Sub-Urban sized colonies, and are rarely any trouble. These colonies begining years were in a time of trouble, pirates constantly troubled the locals as they tried to settle in; this is where the dreary names of these colonies came from. Surprisingly, these colonies are the most battle ready, even though they cause so little trouble, this is due to their begining years as well. These colonies people are just barely rooted in there existence, they only have two generations, and most remember what the empires were like, so forth, ect. The third generation of people is still coming along, the oldest are only five.

FIC System 4: Creon [Ruler].

This is the youngest colony, made not too long ago, and it's final taxation dues payed off. It's around Urban size, and makes no trouble at all. This colonies people are still in the stages of fully colonizing, people are still registering and being transported in. This doesn't mean the people haven't been there for awhile though, it's already growing a decent second generation, the oldest aroun eight. It's people freshly remember their former life and existence, and can't seem to forget the empires, unlike the other colonies.

Each sytem is constructing yet more colonies, one per system, except the oldest, it's sytem colony capacity filled. The newest colony to be construted, and finished will be in FIC System 2, then it goes down the line from there until each colony system has four colony planets, and have grown to metropolis size. Then the FIC will most likely, even before the last few colonies are finished, will attain another system, and start another set, so on and so on, though eventually this massive growth will be stopped, the GE not wanting excesive amounts of I.T. colonies.

Though the vendeta for these in-construction colonies will take awhile, atleast many more years, so massive expantion is still distant, and unthought of.


There you go starmark2k, hope it fits the bill!

Hey SM2k could you somehow put Reydovan somewhere more visited like inbetween many hypergates? Since its like a party cantina place. Just a request.

P.S. I say we should mix the stories a little. Like the Doomsday story with the added affect of the physchics and assassins, which are playing a role in the doomsday activity, or something...

Ok I completed the Hypergate times Here.

and they are as follows:
Political Hypergate Travel Times
Apollo> Demeter - 6 hours
Apollo> Poseidon- 6 hours
Ares > Poseidon- 3 hours
Hades> Poseidon- 22 hours
Apollo> ISS 1- 32 hours
ISS 1> Nirvana- 25 hours
Ares > ISS 2- 37 hours
ISS 2> Nirvana- 37 hours
Haven> ISS 2- 44 hours
Carad-Galadh> Haven- 37 hours
Carad-Galadh> Lyg-Thond- 5 hours
Haven> New Sahara- 34 hours (Gate believed to be offline)
Annun Amon> Carad-Galadh- 25 hours
New Sahara> ISS 3- 30 hours (Gate believed only to be turned on during scheduled trade)
Annun Amon> ISS 3- 26 hours

Independant Hypergate Travel Times
Aphrodite > Poseidon- 9 hours
FIC Base > ISS 1- 8 hours
Himilaya > Nirvana- 9 hours
Black Hand Base > ISS 1- 8 hours (Gate thought to be offline by all but the Black Hand)
Guellia Arms > Nirvana- 20 hours
Guellia Arms > ISS 2- 22 hours
Guellia Arms > ISS 4- 20 hours
Galactic Academy > ISS 2- 16 hours
Galactic Academy > Leo- 10 hours
ISS 4 > Leo - 8 hours
ISS 4 > Virgo- 8 hours
Galactic Academy > Reydovan- 18 hours
ISS 4 > Reydovan- 22 hours
FIC System 3 > ISS 4- 30 hours
Haven > Reydovan- 9 hours
Haven > Pisces- 11 hours
Fic System 4 > Pisces- 10 hours
ISS 3 > Pisces- 14 hours
Atlas > Gemini- 6 hours
Aquarius > Gemini- 8 hours
Gemini > ISS 5- 8 hours
Gemini > ISS 6- 18 hours
ISS 2 > ISS 5- 21 hours
ISS 5 > Taurus- 18 hours
ISS 6 > Taurus- 21 hours
FIC System 1 > ISS 6- 18 hours
Capricorn > Taurus- 24 hours
Capricorn > FIC System 2- 10 hours
Capricorn > Haven- 20 hours
Greenlanders Base > Haven- 2 hours (Secret Gate built and controlled by Greenlanders)
Carad-Galadh > Jendai- 15 hours

Now hyperdrive will travel a similar distance at two thirds the speed which is another reason people use gates over a drive.

Looking at the mutation sections of the Empire creation sheet post i think we have a problem in the fact that some of them are a but tooo broad and open for interpretation. basically i think we should simplify it quite signifantly giving each empire a maximum of three seperate mutations that can occur naturally and 2 that are engineered. This will also happen with the obvious balancing issue to use comparative examples. Michael Samson, who has no mutations (Which should be the norm as it has only been 1000 years) compared to Shien Ciyagi Ryuu Jendai who has Energy control capabilities, extra long life, 2 times extra strength and other various abilities (This is just an example i am not just singlising Master_Archon out). We should have it so if a situation ever came up when these two should meet the normal human should be able to hold their own in a fight, which just wouldn't happen at the moment.

Obviously this is only my opinion so what do you all think?

Bad idea. I just think we should make sure that everyone has non-overpowered characters. It's no fun if you can't be creative. Besides, M_A has shown that he can play a character like that without overpowering him. And we would hardly be the "normal" people, since we're doing something very important here.

I actually think it's nice to see a range in the characters' abilities. It could bring up some interesting situations in the RP, because, even if you are normal, you could still have skills or knowledge that would make you invaluable. And even if you're fairly powerful (using M_A as an example, sorry) you could still be clueless and a bit of a clutz like Shien.

No need to apolagise, besides, you're right, I always have weaknesses that balance my abilities!

OK Guys i think now we're up an running this could actually work out well (although time will still tell).

Anyway i would like a banner for Starfields the second age, now i'm really bad at photoshop software so. I would appreciate it if some kind, nice talented people would have a go at makng one or two. We just need a little somthing to advertise this at the moment. You don't get anything from doing it except my thanks and if it is a success you'll be credited with it. So if you want a go at it just post what you did here.

Thank You
