There are three great galactic empires: Humanus Republic, Interstellar Alliance and the Hordaq Imperium. There are several other significant, distant empires that are still noteworthy, including the Cragg Federation, Mynax Empire, Xynyx Hive and many other empires of various tech levels and post-apocalyptic worlds on various dimensions.

Here’s a taste of life in the Humanus Republic. The game and setting go far beyond the sample given here, however. If you’ve been following the blog, you’ll see that there’s far more going on than this. There are a great many worlds to explore across the galaxies and various dimensions.

As for the Humanus Republic, it borders both the Alliance and the Hordaq Empire in a narrow wedge between two dark nebulae. Fortunately, relations have always been good with the Interstellar Alliance, which has been a boon, as the Hordaq are expansionistic and seem to have very low regard for life, enslaving star system after star system with their massive fleet. Both the Humanus and Alliance were desperate to keep the Hordaq at bay at all costs, which eventually resulted in them luring humans into the conflict.

Long before the humans of Earth discovered the Asteroid Gate, sorted out how to activate it and went through to discover and colonize Endama, the Humanus Republic was a thriving region of spacewith a sizable military, consisting of dozens of respectable warships and a great many mech squadrons, some piloted by humanus, others by A.I. Robotics.

The humanus are genetically identical to humans; they are a diverging race obsessed with integrating technology at every level of society, embracing wholly different worldviews and customs than the remnant of Earth.

Although the humanus seemed less surprised to meet humans than we were to find them dozens of parsecs away from Earth, they told the humans of the prophecies foretelling their arrival, and embraced the humans with open arms, or so it seemed.
Unfortunately, first contact was under less than ideal circumstances, for the Humanus and Alliance were embroiled in a bloody war with the ruthless Hordaq Empire, and it was not long after Endama was settled that the Hordaq attacked the colonists from Earth. The Alliance, predicting their enemy’s move, were quick to equip the survivors of Earth with greater firepower and faster ships, made possible by the technologically advanced taager who recently joined the growing Alliance. The manner with which the Alliance and specifically the technologically advanced taager lured the humans into the conflict wasn’t discovered for several centuries.

Two military fleets patrol Humanus space and form the United Humanus Strategic Command (UHSC): The native Humanus Defense Fleet (HDF) control over 20 allied worlds and numerous colonies, scientific observation posts and outposts over the majority of interior of Humanus space, while the human-controlled Colonial Defense Fleet, patrols a smaller segment, including the Hordaq and Alliance borders.

By 7061 AE, the Colonial Defense Fleet (CDF) has colonized and absorbed over a dozen worlds in addition to maintaining dozens of colonies and outposts, but patrolling the borders while also attempting to support individual worlds has become a herculean task. Lacking an efficient galactic network and enough resources, and with a strained relationship not only with some of its own worlds, but with the Humanus capital on far away Tandem, things are looking bleak.

The citizens of Tandem have fully integrated biorobotics technologies into their society and enjoy a more comfortable level of living, though they too have had some major setbacks due to recent terrorist activities still under investigation. The two great Humanus fleets remain separate, though there is growing dissension between them. After the war with the Hordaq, the galactic giants were so devastated by heavy losses and a disabled psi galactic network, that many planets fell off the grid and it became impossible to properly protect the borders from rogue ships out to prey on supply ships, much less from invasion. Such is the state of things in the Humanus Republic in 7061 AE.

That was just a tiny taste of the scifi regions of the Cosmoverse (mostly Humanus Space), and of course many worlds are blended-genre, and we’ve barely scratched the surface of the kinds of things going on, much less touched on the near limitless variety in adventures you can have in this detailed setting, but we’ll be spending a great deal of time delving into just what Cosmothea is and what you can expect in the days to come, including providing both videos, more blogs and updates to the site. Currently, we’re writing our first Cosmothea Anthology, which will reveal many of the cool locations and concepts, and a hint at what’s possible in the scifi genre and far beyond within the framework of the setting.

And while there’s an ongoing storyline throughout the setting and genres, you’ll be provided with all the tools you need to tell your own stories, slip in your own worlds, if desired, and let loose your imagination.
