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.


Our new Discord is now finished! Click the link below to be invited to the Discord!
Come join us in the Empire of Gaia!

Been wondering about what kind of storms occur on which planets. I mean, what if it could rain diamonds?

There is in a planet in our solar system that does, but since they're diamonds it probably wouldn't be nice to stay outdoors for long.

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 delay in updates. I have a lot of other projects going, so I don't get enough time to put all my ideas into writing. Heck, this need for a break has led me to focus on a resort in Gaia and what stories I could make there.

Been wondering about wildlife protective services and even animal control. I mean, with so many new and odd creatures, you have to keep them safe somehow.

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?

Been looking at some detective stuff (if that isn't obvious by my obsession with mystery right now), and I think I might have some more investigative stories with puzzles to crack and cases to solve. What do you guys think? Where's the best place to start?

I think I've been watching too much Persona 5 and now I can't stop associating some of the characters I've made with them. I know it might help with aliens, but I think I'm going to far. Please tell me this is normal.

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.

Speaking of which, I should probably post a new short story on here.

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! :)

I concur with Jedi's view on this, however I can see this working in some form with another government in this universe. The Tarazed Ascendancy.

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?

Hmm... It's been a while since I talked here... So I'll fix that right now!

We've been working pretty darn hard on some new stuff for you guys, and believe me when I say that Gaia has become extremely interesting in more ways than one. But I don't think we're done yet, so if you're up to it, I and the Empire of Gaia welcome you to share what you can with us or just even read the lore we have created thus far. Either way, Gaia honors you for your service to the Empire!

Gaia is another form of Gaea, the goddess of the earth in Greek mythology. The Empire originated from Earth, so it seems fitting that it would be its name.

Just started randomly doodling and ended up creating a more hyena-looking creature with a mane of fur going down its back and lots of shaggy fur. This could be a good start for a new alien. Are there any special traits I should add? Also, what should I call it? Be sure to leave or suggestion or share your own ideas in the thread.
