The Lore of the My Colony Universe

#1 2017-11-25 05:09:18
Was wondering if anybody is interested in me writing out the Lore of the current My Colony universe on a website somewhere, and perhaps even opening it up for the community to make additions to it?

As some may be aware, My Colony already exists in a small fictional universe I created a few years ago which spans several games now, so some of the story can be gleaned from the games, but nothing is actually written out in an outside context. The games involved are:
All of the games center around the United Earth faction, while My Colony obviously has LIS and Zolarg, Death 3d also contains LIS and Zolarg, and Colony Wars will mainly be U.E. and LIS, although the Reptilians will play a small role.

The stories primarily take place after 2050 where the United Nations has taken over earth as a one world government controlled by the General Assembly and the U.E. President. The LIS was an early (pre U.E.) earth colony, and when Earth united they decided to bolt and declare independence, which the U.E. does not formally recognize. They are essentially in a cold war which is about to become a hot war, starting with the events of Death 3d and boiling over in Colony Wars.

As for the Zolarg, they are an old race of insectoids who were once subjugated to the authority of the evil Reptilians. Centuries ago, one brave insectoid named Zolarg rose an army and overthrew the Reptilians. Zolarg was then promoted to Emperor for life and they named their civilization after him. They don't have much in the way of tech, just a little bit of left over knowledge from their Reptilian captors.

The Reptilians are evil and they are reptiles. There is a lot planned for them, which you will learn soon. I don't want to give too much away.

The Ancients used to rule the entire galaxy but they are either extinct or they have transformed into some sort of higher power. They may be expanded upon later. I also pondered the idea of having the Ancients actually be humans who had gained great power long ago but then took themselves out through war, bombing themselves literally back into the stone age, from which we are now just emerging and re-learning about ourselves. But idk.

So anyway, this is in the suggestions section for several reasons. 1) is any of this interesting? 2) does anybody want to work on expanding it? 3) should i set up some sort of wiki type site for holding the backstory of all of these games and their characters? 4) What should the name of this universe be? In my head it is the Deimos universe since that is the first game. I also sometimes think of it as the 'United Earth' universe. But none really sound good.

Anyway, no poll here. Just thoughts and feedback!

Yes! Very interested. It will be a challenge to insert all the various factions that have already cropped up in My Colony, but it won't be dull is for sure.

Deimos is the logical choice since it all began there.

2)
The colonization of the planets and moons in the SOL - system weren't enough to sustain the population but humanity wasn't enough technologically advanced to reach new solar systems.

On the moon of planet earth people discovered while driling for ice an undergroundcity of an ancient alien species. No one knows where they went and even if they are still alive but with the technology they left humankind were able to reach every other planet in the current galaxy.

The lack of professional people and the always growing population forced the government to have even the average human to take control over planets. They were sent away with 2 workers, 2500 money units and a rover.

Humanity would have a bright future if it weren't for the uneven payroll shares for countries on the planet earth which lead to small wars which then turned into bigger ones until third world war occurred.

After many years the US government decided to annex the enemy territory under the name: United Earth. Many other nations decided to also join the U.E. for payroll benefits until the rest of the nations joined them because of the fear that U.E. will forcefully claim their country.

People around the galaxy have acknowledge the changes with different political views. Many planet owners see the U.E. as a necessary way for humankind to develop even further while some decided to be part of the League of Independent Nations because they see them as a threat for freedom or simply out of revenge for their past nation.

The U.E. saw the L.I.S. not as a threat but weren't able to reclaim the planets since the current war space ships weren't able to get over the planetary defence system which got spread all over the galaxy (but were mainly for shooting asteroid) until both fraction have discovered an ancient weapon which were able to destroy planets through forcing the stars to create a supernova (which have people around the galaxy create the theory that this weapon is the reason why the ancients are no more)

Both fraction mostly ignore each other while sometimes small conflict happens like shooting down of colonization space ships but many people think that the destruction of a solar system will lead to a war between both. (Until one point a U.E. system were destroyed by a super nova (naturally but they don't know about that and think L.I.S. is responsible for that) and decided to declare war on L.I.S. )

=> This could show how humanity killed themselves off as ancients (when they automate this weapon to kill off every advanced civilization which belongs to the other fraction and only colonization spaceships in space were left to unite to a planet again (=earth) while the were left with almost no resources. knowledge and understanding of society were lost in all those years of rebuilding and brutal leaderships


For the zolargs there is not much too say except for the years of slavery, the years of discovering the technology (the reptilian left behind) to leave their basic lifestyle behind (maybe worth to mention that reptilian may were more powerful but the zolargs breed faster which is why they had more manpower) and the hate towards other species since they don't have any other species on their planet ((=isolation) except for the reptilians in the past)

Why zolargs could go for a war even after a short peacefully time:
Their people are getting told that history will repeat themself if they don't stop humankind from spreading (=seeing them as a danger which is easily achieved because of the countless years of isolation between other species)


Hopefully the reptilian have a despotism likely form of government (to compete with the democracy for humans and communism (likely) for zolarg and) to explain their aggressive behaviour (If they are so evil)

4)
Maybe for each species another name for the galaxy to show their cultural differences

Just yes to all of those, but there is one problem you said the Zolarg were slaves to the Reptilians so the statue of the Zolarg Leader needs to be updated if it hasn't

I'm back again with an attempt on the story.
The earth was in a time of peril, all the nations where at war, or what was left.... The world had been engulfed in a long war, over 230 years have battles been fought for resources, 137 countries perished in the war. In the end, a leader arose from the war and united humanity. None knew where he came from, only that he was almost... divine. He founded the United Earth, All countries flew under one banner, and with this new unification came a new age, the new age of technology took the U.E to the stars, limitless was the universe before them. The first ship was sent to Mars just 2 years after the Emperor first appeared. Mars became the ground from which helium 3 was mined, after which thousands of planets fell to the banner of the U.E, Terraforming worlds to suit their needs the U.E became the dominant power in the universe, but with every great empire there is a fall...... Colonies all over the empire decided to split forming several governments, many colonies remained but the U.E feared that many others would want a separate government and freedom. The first to leave was the League of Independent States and under it many colonies joined or were formed. The L.I.S were a small group of freedom fighters that grew to power, but many consider their actions as the actions of terrorists. The age of technology still reigns today with the discovery of the ancients a species of aliens in which the Emperor held in personal regard. Many colonies left after their discovery choosing to live a life based on their culture. The fracture U.E is still a dominant power and its colonies are vast, that's when the Zolarg were found a hive-like species of insectoids similar to the human ants, which has raised many questions amongst humans. The race is a primitive technology of neolithic level. Although the U.E fleets are vast the Zolarg had numbers and they are engaged in a bloody war, but many other governments are in good relationships, even able to understand them. Surprisingly their government is extremely advanced for their technology. There are legends amongst the Zolarg that some humans have managed to glean, one is of their leader and their war against the mysterious Reptilians. All the humans know is that the war ended in the Zolarg victory and the advanced Reptilians being forced into hiding so that they do not become extinct. The Galactic Emperor died but the board of propaganda kept it a secret to the billions and so they elect a president in the name of the galactic emperor to rule the earth for a period of time. A secret is known by only his species but the Emperor was an ancient that survived the extermination, and had died of old age but has transended because of his vast knowledge, he still influences the Universe in small ways.

And thats my very very brief draft on the human lore

I might have a go at what might be an ancient story

I would most certainly be quite interested in a wiki containing the lore of the My Colony universe. As well as occasionally giving some input myself.
