Sands on the Solar Winds

Shireling

A Servant of King and Country
Overview
"Sands on the Solar Winds" is a science-fiction nation builder in the tradition of "Ashes of Creation" and "Interstellar Empires." A series of player-created original species and civilizations compete for resources and political prestige in a somewhat near-future setting. We already have roughly six members and are looking for as many as would like to join. You may also join halfway through. Posting schedules are flexible, and participation in all of the main plot segments is not mandatory. We will be hosting out-of-character communications offsite (PM for details) but all in-character information as well as nation and character sheets and lore entries will be here on RPN.

SSW is narrative-based, with a chapter structure and (very) light dice mechanics. The main plot will consist of a series of international crises that will allow your characters and nations either to assist the other factions in the galaxy or take advantage of the situation for their own motives. Players can also start subplots, which can be tied into the main plots and will generally be resolved by one on one writings then posted to the subplot threads.

The environment is not especially competitive, but will allow for player interaction and competition. There will be a focus on building community around the setting which is the reason that, while posting requirements will be lenient, you will be expected to be at least somewhat active in out of character discussion. All in all, the aim is to create a setting with long-term viability and appeal with a deep lore and interconnected story points.

I'm new, but I'm defiantly interested in this idea. I would be willing to work as a human race, but could you give me a idea of what I would need to prepare?

Exactly how new are you? Because if you have any experience with collaborative fiction or nation builders, its fairly simple to explain. If not, its a bit more involved.

New enough that what you just said made little sense. I've played some d&d and read your guides, but except for that, nada ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
