Create A Universe With Other Writers!!!

Greetings newcomer, and welcome to the "Create A Universe With Other Writers!!!" thread! We are a group of informal writers working together on, you guessed it, a sci-fi universe, and we're always looking for new ideas, so feel free to share your thoughts here. If you need an idea on what we've created so far, here's a little summary for you:


Earth, now known as Gaia, has come to peace with all nations, uniting them against the extraterrestrial forces invading their solar system. This unison allows Gaia to conquer numerous planets, even stretching into other galaxies, thus giving them the new title of the Empire of Gaia. New alliances with alien races have allowed the humans to gather new technology and skills, the most important being the Living Crystals, a sort-of organic AI system that powers their weapons. However, the Empire of Gaia does not always run smoothly, so special forces teams are employed to help even out the discord in the empire. Even still, battles are being waged everyday against hostile aliens, traitorous armies, and other powerful enemies. It seems hard to be called a hero in these dark times, yet some manage to gain this revered title in outrageous acts of valor.

I created a race of aliens a long time ago, and wanted to use them in some sort of thing like this. Maybe you can use them/

They are called the Alca's. They have big eyes, small feet, but have huge arms. They're belief is good education for their young prospects. They are currently in war in the galaxy Wayeshushu Motoramo. The Alcas are travelers and have moved alot, but they're "home planet" is Xeriene. They are currently looking for allies.

They are currently 0.6 light years away from us.

Hey guys! The Empire of Gaia’s two-year anniversary is fast-approaching, and it wouldn’t seem right to leave anyone out of the celebration. To mend this, I have a question for you all:

What is your favorite thing or memory so far about the Empire of Gaia?

It it can be a funny moment, an alien, or really anything that makes you smile. Thank you for supporting the Empire of Gaia. Without your service, we couldn’t be as mighty as we are now!

A fascist resistance movement springs up on Naragon and wants independence for all Naragonians (Naragonians can refer to human colonists who moved to Naragon or the indigenous population of Naragon) the resistance movement is called the Council for the Liberation of the Naragonian People's with it's armed wing 'Naragonian Liberation Army' calling for the expulsion of the Gaian colonists and hierarchy and the establishment of a fascist totalitarian dictatorship. The Naragonian Congress meets up in the Naragonian Capitol and discusses the possible use of Gaian special forces against the guerrilla movement, but during that meeting a bomb goes off on starship carrying important diplomatic figures, like the Emir of the Nebulan Emirate on the planet of Nebulan. Nebulan-Naragonian relations plummet, the Coalition of Socialist Democratic Party and the Communist Party of Naragon (Marxist-Leninst) start to lose control of congress and the Military. The CLNP start to gain political power. In the Naragonian elections of 2999, the CLNP gain a majority in the Naragonian Congress with it's leader Ka-lik (pronounced Ka-Leak) being sworn in has President of the Naragonian Commonwealth. He then uses his power to shutdown political opposition, like the Red Martian Front (the armed wing of the Communist Party of Naragon). He uses his paramilitary unit know has the Whistleblowers to immediate and destroy the opposition. The Naragonian Liberation Army merges with the Naragonian Defence Force to form the Naragonian National Army. On 1st January, 3000 the Naragonian Commonwealth (now renamed the Naragonian Reich) declared independence from the Empire of Gaia, a crisis envelops the Empire. Republican Lobbyists and Royalist Lobbyists debate whether Naragon should have the right to be independent from the Empire. On 10th January, Naragonian National Army soldiers disguised has civilians take over the Gaian embassy in Mooncrater City, the Moon, beginning the Gaian Embassy Crisis, Gaian Special Forces are called up to take over the embassy and rid it of the Naragonian terrorists, on the 19th January, they prepare to breach the embassy compound when a Neptunian diplomat is executed on the top of the embassy and thrown off the building, the breach is delayed. Eventually on the 30th, the breach happens they blow a hole in the wall using old C4 explosives. They quickly overpower the terrorist killing 9 out of the 10 terrorist, with the final terrorist throwing himself out the embassy's fourth floor balcony. Documents inside the embassy discover that this was a government funded terrorist attack, the royalists use this has proof that the Naragonian governments hostility towards the Empire of Gaian. This signals the start of the Gaian-Naragonian War. (I have decided not to do the war has I don't have time)

You definitely have a solid idea, yet due to the circumstances of Gaia's expansive imperial government and strong unity in the military system, the idea of an uprising on Mars seems implausible or could be easily quashed. However, I can see this playing out on a planet farther away from the heart of the Gaian Empire. If you want to re-write for a different world, then by all means.

A great idea, but we have our fair share of turncoats in this universe, especially in regards to Remington Barcatier.

As for the Emperor of Gaia himself, he's a bit, well very, enigmatic and shrouded in mystery. What his motives are and the secrets he holds remain unknown.

However, that's not to say that there aren't greater powers at play. ;)

Agreed, but I have been thinking about a treasure planet for a while. A secret paradise, a true El Dorado. Gold cliffs, molten gold lava, the whole nine yards. Heck, even the animals could have something extremely precious about them.

Sorry, about the lack of updates here for a while. I've become obsessed with some other characters I'm writing stories on.

Anyway, I'm going to do my best and actually start drawing some characters. Probably going to start with some of the new races that have been developed. I look forward to sharing them with you all!

Been doing some more research, and by research I mean playing Overwatch. There's a ton of different aspects and concepts I really like in it. Biotic fields, hard-light shields, implants to help with hacking, and even scatter arrows are ideas I would really like to entertain for Gaia. What do you guys think? Does it sound like a good idea?

There's been a big focus on the more intelligent races present in the Empire of Gaia, but we still need a few filler aliens, just to make things feel alive. I say filler in the sense that they are not a main focus of a work but make a planet feel more alive. You may be as specific as you want, but make sure to give a clear picture as to what your alien is like.

Remember, any contribution you can make is greatly appreciated, and Gaia honors you for your service!

Thanks man. What do you think about making the planet Monoceros, the one we talked about having abundant wildlife, the place where our space raptors are from. Keep in mind that the name Monoceros refers more to a unicorn, and maybe a more ancient and possibly reptilian name is needed.

So... I've been getting a few requests to make a more descriptive summary of the lore we have created so far as many do not wish to scroll through all of the posts to get the information. Even though I am the creator of this thread, even I struggle to sum up what has been created so far.

I think this must be a team effort, as many people can find many different lore bites that I might gloss over. And perhaps you can create your own lore and it could be added to the canon lore.

Remember, if there is any way you can serve Gaia, no matter how small it may be, the Empire salutes you for it!

The issue of hunting has recently come up for Gaia, and I believe it's time we get some way to protect the Empire's wildlife. Thankfully, I've found a solution: the Empire of Gaia must form a wildlife department with game wardens to police the nature within the Empire. But that's as far as the idea really goes. Anyone willing to help me flesh this one out?

Man I really don't want to read all those comments to get caught up xD.

There could be an alien race that unites a bunch of other alien races against the Empire of Gaia and wages war on Gaian outposts and bases around the galaxy. Soon entire systems and even Gaian ship captains are defecting to the enemy side, seeing that the result is inevitable. Slowly but surely, their combined forces close in on the space around Gaia, and eventually the last of the major Gaian warships protecting Gaia is destroyed.

Gaia is under attack. Because it's in the future, there are not nearly as many humans on Gaia than there were in the past. As a result, the alien forces (who could call themselves the Haides) nearly wipe out every human on Gaia. The few that are left are taken into captivity.

Suddenly, the entire Gaian Empire has been wiped out, with just small pockets of resistance and few major Gaian bases or outposts left in the galaxy. The remaining humans, scattered throughout space, now must unite to defeat what is now known as the Haiden Empire.

This is just some of what I thought of, feel free to finish the story! :)

Hmm... I'm just not sure how I feel about reducing Gaia to just human resistance. We've put a lot of work into military organization, political systems, various alien allies, and even space raptors. So to reduce them to rebels fighting an enemy empire just doesn't sit right with me. But we do have traitors as enemies in Gaia. In fact, they're a part of our most integral storylines. Situations similar to this can be seen on smaller scales, such as the cyborg rebellion on a lost colony of Gaia. Still, I still want Gaia to stand strong and seek peace, not war, with other alien races.

I see what you're saying. I'm just trying to come up with a definite story, with events, for this universe. But to be honest, my storyline does feel a lot like Star Wars.

What if it happened with maybe an outpost in another system or something? Same thing, but on a smaller scale?
