Walkers from the Four Stars
« on: October 06, 2011, 05:32:20 pm »
In the dark void just off the edge of the galaxy lies a quiet system unlike any other. A large star, pulsing with energy and glowing green, and its 3 child stars which orbit it closely hosts a single planet, a planet which shines in the stellar light. Orbiting this reflective sphere of matter is a moon, a moon which possesses liquid water and two small continents. It is here that a species makes its home, on the warm desert islands of Fotari.

The internet is a magical place, where linguistic and dialectic possibilities are endless. Why not embrace those variations and see where they lead you.

Er... Chlorine isn't abundant enough to form a planetary atmosphere unless the atmosphere was artificial (ancient terraforming?), but a green star is impossible as far as I know. I don't really understand how a commune can be imperial either, but whatever.

So they're far away from anybody at the edge of the galaxy. Will we be seeing story RPs by you with these guys? That would be interesting. Oh, and good job on the name. Caftain is catchy unlike "Oiyj", and I don't see any silly apostrophes anywhere. Fantastic!

A few stories and eventually actual RP. The entire system was an experiment by a long gone species.

* Badger shrugs.

The light it produces is a green wavelength? Same way blue stars and white stars are made?

In other words, let it go UFO


from the very brief feel of their personality I got, I like them. hope to see them fleshed out.


Edit: also, i'm a sucker for shiny names like that.

Aw, come on. Green stars are impossible, that's why you never see one. You could have a green nebula, which is a lot nicer-looking anyway.
