>_> I kinda made a few references to Earth in my Barroc thread as a hidden planet filled with pathetic and aggressive creatures that the Barroc sometimes abduct and study but lost track of Earth a hundred years back.

Why don't we just say that it's convergent evolution, in a massive scale.

Because that's pretty much impossible ;)

I was going to say earlier that if we make an "official" reference to Earth, people are going to argue over who blew it up, who has made contact, etc.  I think it's better to keep such things non-canon.
Probably not a Goat, either.

Lets have a big space cannon plow it up!  ;)

How about go about it the HHGTTG way.  We know of Earth, but its such a backwater and uninteresting place that no one bothers to go there.

See, the amount of disagreement about how to treat the absence of Earth proves that it's simpler (to quote the Guide) to just take the thing away and have done with it.

This is a different galaxy. Earth doesn't exist in this one. Therefore, Earth isn't on the map, we don't interact with Earth (aside from non-canon stuff made possible by intergalactic travel or whatever) and there are no problems and no narrative mess to clean up.

I reference Earth in my RPs, but not as a visitable planet, but as the godly place where everything is created.

Same as mine. Earth is an "outside" realm detached from everything, the abode of "The Will" and "The Users."

I disagree :P See why having everyone on one big map was a bad idea :P

But we can deal with that problem by not having Earth on the big map.  And you don't have to participate if you don't want to.

But I get the feeling we're going in circles on this.  In the end, whoever is willing to make the map gets to have the last say, it seems.  Where is Infernal, anyways?
