Also, didn't you post a poll in Everything Else about their races? How do you expect any of us here to be familiar with that? We don't even know what the hell this is or who those people are.

As with regards to Kosmosis, it was a step in the right direction. But it lacked people outside of the forums here and it wasn't established enough as it should have been. I have been looking into ways of passing administratorship of that site to someone else.

It is, doesn't mean that the forum was deleted or anything.

I look at this with a healthy dose of cynicism, suspicion (can't find a good word right now).

I looked at their history (I can't help but enjoy reading any universes history) and took some peeks at their forum... but I think our rp's despite both taking place in a sci-fi (or in their case, sci-fantasy) universes, aren't that compatible, mainly because we and they focus on completely different aspects of said universes...

Us: We focus on awesome galatic battles, relations between alien nations ect...

They: they focus on life at a weird alien high school...

To be honest, I was expecting the criticism to be a lot more brutal.  :-\
Of course, there is the secret plan...
And by that, I mean Our influence will cause them to change their play style a bit.
I was originally planning this to have a sort of "hard sci-fi vs. sci-fantasy" theme, anyway.
As with regards to the "bad space opera" claim, we can deal with that.
So, like I said, thanks for being constructive with your criticism, and I do understand that I'm going to need to do a LOT to make this thing work. I mostly thought of this because I wanted to do a crossover with something and I didn't see any other forums anything remotely similar to this one.

Well theirs is basically a fantasy game in space. They don't attempt to be original like this forum has been. In short slightly altered humans as each type of race is quite boring when it comes to this type of game. I know our aliens are not always original or realistic but compared to theirs ours look amazingly original! Also the whole magic thing makes things worse. Seriously they would not only be in another galaxy but another dimension. Also from what I have read on their forums they seem to be very full of themselves and think they are so great. I have no idea why you would want to be associated with them.

Yeah, for the novelty of being featured on TvTropes makes these people seem a little dense.

I'm going to agree with Hydro and Gec. If these guys are full of themselves, I don't really want to do it with them. Maybe we make our own races for that galaxy?

They don't have separate organisms - they just have humans and magical beings.

Yeah....
Even if this actually, by some miracle, works, ten bucks says it goes real bad real fast.
And I mean that ten bucks part metaphorically, sence I don't have any money....

I see your point. But what they don't have is antimatter. Or strange matter. Or Wexxians...
Maybe we make our own races for that galaxy?
I once thought of that, then went, "wait a minute... why wouldn't those races just be in this one?"

I may have to rework the whole idea. Anybody know any other forums (that feature an advanced plethora of races) that we could do this with?

"Planet Spore" use to have an active pre-spore RP community. However after Spore came out their site soon went away. Some of their aliens I recall were the Ravens, Biarclo, some red xenomorph-like alien, a blue spiky cat that Sash made and the Gibbens.

You know, I find it funny that the poll options tied for first place are "OH GOD NO" and "OH, HEY OCTAGONAPUS!"

You know, people are not going to take it seriously if you give us those options. :P

True, Gec. True.

EDIT: When I was really hoping for this crossover to happen, I made a little intro comic. Everything's drawn from memory, so I probably got most of the designs wrong. I'm currently uploading the whole thing to ImageShack. I should be able to post it when the whole thing's done.

EDIT2: Here, have a comic.

Page 5 is missing, but read it anyway. Again, I'm sorry if I got any designs wrong.
