Title: A Brief history of the Galaxy: Timeline
Post by: sgore on June 23, 2006, 08:23:05 am
"Jacobs, I want to know absolutely everything that's happened up till now."
"Well, let's see. First the earth cooled. And then the dinosaurs came, but they got too big and fat, so they all died and they turned into oil. And then the Arabs came and they bought Mercedes Benzes. And Prince Charles started wearing all of Lady Di's clothes. I couldn't believe it. "-
Airplane II the Sequel

Timeline so Far:

As people keep modifying it I'll try to stay current with the timeline up here.

Unfortunately I got into this section a little later then I had planned on so I'm having a little trouble piecing everything together.
Actually if anyone has the spare time to piece it together and generally describe what's happened this could be stickied as a sort of general overall FanFic timeline. Hydro has the Realtime timeline stickied, but it doesn't really give the dates things took place at and such maybe some sort of graphic timeline type thing.

I know it's a big request and I don't actually expect someone to organize them all on to there, but possibly just put an event somewhere on there along with it's date. It actually might just save overall general confusion for anyone.

Seriously it would save confusion, and not just for me. I think It would be a good refrence.

I have to say, this is a rather good idea, but we'd have to organize from the start of the universe to when every species appeared, add time points, and agree WHEN today is. How many billions of years later it is and such.

-The First Galatic War, Viziera and Allies vs ViS and Allies.
-O.T.H.E.R and CAB formed.
-O.T.H.E.R and CAB have a brief "Cold War"
-The Halcyon War
-O.T.H.E.R reborn.
-SWU born
-The Necromonicon Appear

It would really help if we could decide On years so we can at least know the distance between events...but I'll update the timeline with the current graphic until we do.

assigning specific dates to things can cause problems later and tends to limit people. I happen to like the explanation that time is slightly out of whack in this region of space due to failed time-travel experiments so its impossible for anyone to know exactlky when things happened or will happen.

As for slightly more broad events I think the three oldest civilisations are the Nauceans the Torpal and the ViS in that order (within the fanfic, not when they were created)

At the same time, Setting it up like that makes it somewhat harder for people just coming in to get the hang of what's going on.

Not that the space time experiments are a bad explination or interesting topic, but a timeline would at least be somewhat of a base that people could make sence of as a refrence. I'm not saying it has to be completely specific but dates on some things would help.

Nice Watching!

I think a basic order is cool, but dating things will make the need for an Earth-Spore time differnce and will quickly become immensley complicated.

There was another, similar thread that included when races became sapient.

This is why things that are roleplayed could use to be consistant... arent there several RP'ed threads going on at different periods in time? So confusing, this and the number of different, larger threads, is the main reason why I dont get involved in this. Oh, and the fact I have yet to make a race that I want to RP with. They're all designed to be played in Spore right now, so I dont assign too much history/timeline to them.

No I mean "This is why things that are roleplayed could use to be consistant".
Having multiple RP sessions that are in different time periods can cause confusion, and sometimes things that happen earlier on in the continuity may call for a bunch of akward changes on the RP sessions based in the future. Its a little like "Superhero Logic". The superheroes are given their names and powers first, and then you decide how they got their superpowers second. That seems a little backwards, but it works quite well. This kind of thing applies to when multiple RP sessions are dotted around randomly in a timeline, you have already set deciding events in stone, and you are trying to invent how they came to those conclusions. Thing is, good roleplay sessions dont always go to plan, so working towards a predetermined goal can curb the fun. Breaking away from the plan means more changes to be made further down the timeline, but if people are roleplaying in a period further into the future, it gets messy.

-brainfart-
This is of course assuming you have your RP sessions taking place in different time periods. I assumed that, given they are in different threads..

Hmmm. Its true. The prison escape is already messed up continuity-wise because it features the original ViS leader who got blown up when the Naucean mother-sphere blew up.  :P

I guess if we're using the Hydromancer popularity quotient to determine the ages of creatures then Nauceans should have emerged as a civilised society first, followed later by the ViS and Torpal at roughly the same time as each other (the difference being that the Torpal advanced quickly and expanded in a huge swathe of the galaxy as a disorganised mass whereas the ViS expanded slowly in a big concentric spheres around their original home planet)... then all the rest in some order. Doesnt need to be too accurate, since no-one cares about the other creatures that much  ;)

Have no idea how to place Æthirans in a timeline. Is a Empire that rise a fallen so many times in the galactic age. A society that for all is technically advances have not really created nothing new at all just rediscovered ancient technology for a time before the last purge or intergalactic war. Æthirans are made to be old and never changing allway falling back 2 steps after taking 1 forward yet surviving despite this. The only thing that has really grow sins they started to build their intergalactic empire is the Conclaves Library and the list of death and atrocities.

Agreed. But they had a very slow rate of progress due to their natural disposition, meaning theyve only just reached early space age at the time we're calling 'now' in the fanfic universe.

I think that is a good idea. Æthirans do not need to be on the time line as their early history do not effect any other race. (At lest not yet. If anyone what to co write story with me involving Æthirans i will not back down.) their are probably lots of races that do not effect any other race until a lot later in their galactic development. As i see it is that Æthiran Empire very far away from the other races and that Æthiran Empire yet again have a new intergalactic golden age.

Post by: Uroboros on June 23, 2006, 04:35:10 pm
You'll probably chase me with burning torches and pitchforks for suggesting this, but why not just... start fresh? Call all of this a 'training run', and start on a fresh, clean slate. Pick a good starting date for the RP session, and place it as early as you can possibly manage. After that, -never- skip further ahead than you absolutely need to. Follow the progression of events as they unfold, and try not to get impatient. This way around, things make sense, and there is no timebombs sat in the continuity of things.

I realise there is a problem in the fact that not all species reach the space-age at the same time, and whilst some are trading words up in space, some are just crawling out of the tidepools. You could essentially ignore those races not yet in the space-age until they come of age, and those without parts to play due to time differences could just make "temporary" characters from someone elses species. By temporary, I mean a character you're willing to kill off dramatically to further the plot, and so you can create a character within your own species (at the same time). Still this is a lot of messing around too, and it would mean you would forfeit all previous RP material. Meaning that its no better than struggling with the current tangled timeline.... hmm....

Having an RP'ed storyline that actually has to take into consideration the entire evolution of many species, is very unusual. If you played it from the moment the first two or three spacefaring civilisations met up, you'd have a LOT of roleplaying to do before the others caught up. Unless of course you only roleplay specific events, then resort to time-skips between them. Either way, a lot of people will be waiting, and even if they play characters from your species, nobody knows how a species should act like its creator. They might just get it completely wrong and out-of-character. So.. uh.. okay, scrap my idea ;)

You know since it's somewhat set up people could actually create things that take place anywhere on the timeline.

Why not a Action/Romance During the first Galactic War  ;), Not saying something like that would have to go on there, but now that we have mostly set up the timeline, the major events could be used to sort of act as markers for things like that.

Take out all references to creatures on that. Take off "Necronomicon born". No offence, but if you want to have them on there we have to have all the more important/poular creatures -  I mean, I'm going to have to insist on the Kazea, Nauceans, ViS, Torpal, Urshans, Wexxians, Caarnth, Icthians, Auyceliad and a whole bunch of others which I would suggest have more of a place on there. And there are a lot of creatures to go on it.

It saves argument if you just don't have any.

Naucean Renaissance: Up to GW1
The Alliance years:
-O.T.H.E.R and CAB formed.
-O.T.H.E.R and CAB have a brief "Cold War"
-The Halcyon War
-O.T.H.E.R reborn.
-SWU born
Necromonicon Era:
-The Necromonicon Appear
-Necrid Discord War
Post-Necromonicon Era:
-------------------------------
Far Future:
-Arcadia
-Prison Escape

Whats the "Naucean Renaissance" mean? Thats not the rennaissance of the Naucean ages but the Naucean civlization you mean.

The "Naucean Renaissance" is the time when the only powerfull spacefaring species were The Naucean. Renaissance in a literal sense- exploration!

The problem now is of course how we fit the OMYL stuff onto it, as well as things like the ascentions and the Icthian-Aethiran war, given that none of them really have any definitive order in the timeline. Unless of course the timeline doesn't have a scale anymore, and just serves to demarcate the order of events.

Hey Sgore... http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=4447.0...

We should do something about having two seperate ones... I've noticed that mine's more creature oriented though...  So maybe we can just keep them separate and refer people to each other's? :P

Damn!  i had a really good idea a minute ago...  Of like, how to manage our separate ideas really really well... But now it's gone :S
Title: Re: A Brief history of the Galaxy: Timeline

Title: Re: A Brief history of the Galaxy: Timeline
Post by: BioCat on November 18, 2006, 01:44:17 am
The way I see it, and correct me if I am wrong, the Nauceans are much like the star control 2 precursors. They disappeared from our universe and left it for good (well I don’t want to ruin the real reason they are gone for those who will play it in the future :) ). Now I don’t think it is the Naucean’s style to come to every other civilization in the galaxy and say “worship us”, they are much too nice and friendly to do that. And therefore other races won't see them as gods; they will see them as a super intelligent civilization that once hosted this area.
They probably just left some relics behind for those who want to know more about them and the way they vanished and left the universe to find its own ways. 

So I do think we are somewhere in the far future, perhaps not a million years forward but at list in the age the Nauceans have the technology to banish, the only question is whether they already decided to do so or not.

Post by: TaylorFlame on December 10, 2006, 02:53:11 am
Races don't just ascend like that. The Nauceans were around since the beginning of time or something, and took aeons to ascend. Your guys seemed to be going alright and then suddenly ascend after only a million or so years, possibly less.
Title: Re: A Brief history of the Galaxy: Timeline
Post by: Arachoid on December 10, 2006, 10:12:06 am
Holy hell, 1million year ascension?! You don't think much of me do you?!  :'(
No, only one of my races ascended, and, due to the small size of the time line, a short space represents a lot of time! For example, between the time the time the Rhododrodes are defeated in the second war with the Vicola and when the Vicola give up there xenophobic ways is almost 25,000 years. So no, the Vexarions did not just decide to ascend all of the sudden. And seriously, how could the Nauceans have been around since the dawn of time??? They would need more than a couple seconds after the dawn of time to evolve! :P
Title: Re: A Brief history of the Galaxy: Timeline
Post by: Josasa on December 10, 2006, 02:13:01 pm
Personally, i think that ascension shouldn't take so long, because if the Nauceans have already accomplished this, why couldn't other races attain the technology to carry out the ascension? Personally, i don't think i'll ever make my races ascend.
Title: Re: A Brief history of the Galaxy: Timeline
Post by: TaylorFlame on December 10, 2006, 03:02:08 pm
Whatever. I just do not get why you would want to ascend anyway. The nauceans did it, and they are all gone nwo. I would prefer to keep my physical body.
Title: Re: A Brief history of the Galaxy: Timeline
Post by: Josasa on December 10, 2006, 06:31:51 pm
Actually, there are some Nauceans still around, acting as guardians to races, and helping them along. I think the reason Hydro ascended them was because he didn't want to RP anymore and just decided to 'get rid' of them in the nicest way he could think of.
Title: Re: A Brief history of the Galaxy: Timeline
Post by: Arachoid on December 11, 2006, 02:41:04 pm
I decided to ascend the Vexarions because I did not want to work on them anymore, but they were special to me, so I did not want them to go extinct like the Photophoids.

I know, I took the lazy way out in my case, but hey, what else could I have done? Eternal sleep? No.

Post by: sltlamina on December 12, 2006, 02:24:07 am
I'm not sure whether to ascend the Zyyo or not...so I made It that when they die they kinda half ascend...like It's the afterlife but ascension...but I still haven't decided If that's final and It might Just be the afterlife...as for the vote I think Naucean shouldn't win cos to be honest they've had way too much fan art :D

As Daxx has said, it's going to have an effect. The DUP was only added after it was pretty much inactive. The Grand Union was added immediately because we were pretty much the only active races at the time.

A short timeline of all my races:

(http://i16.tinypic.com/61ma9hy.png)

Brief Explanation: The Naucean ascension is the starting point, after which the Vexarions evolve. From there things are run of the mill. Note that they encounter the Rhododrodes early on, but they are unintelligent plant-animals. Then, using bits and bobs of DNA gathered throughout the galaxy, the Vexarions create the Photophoids, and shortly thereafter 'ascend.' Some Vexarions are left behind, and later repopulate.

But before then, the Photophoids, having been dumped on their own planet and gain sapience, eventually becoming technologically advanced xenophobes. Then the malevolent Rhododrodes, seeking to destroy all life other than themselves, target the Photophoids. War ensues. Eventually the Photophoids develop a virus to destroy their enemies, but, unbeknownst to either side, they are related, and it wipes out the Photophoids, too.

By this time, the growing Vexarion population reenters galactic society. Them secretly granting the Tropians sapience is considered to be at the present.

But the Rhododrodes may not all be wipe out... Some may be in hiding, gathering their strength once more...

Please don't necro-bump a topic if you aren't going to add to it. That goes double if all you going to do is insult people anyway.
