My Incursion Campaign - Combined History
« on: September 16, 2020, 05:42:48 PM »
I wanted to use all the races from FTL2448 in my Incursion campaign... so I created a combined history:

Code: [Select]
Combined History

The history from FLT2448, has been combined with the Incursion history to create an entirely new Galactic Government.  Names have been changed to avoid confusion with the Terrans.

History

-50000 Anshani
The other races were fast to fill in the power vacuum created by the end of the era of the Anshani. Countless different races and political systems flourished and died in flames. The once mighty multi-galactic empire fell into ruin as empire after feeble empire rose to claim this Galaxy and quickly failed. The miracle HFTL technologies became scarce and old FTL ship designs re-emerged.
-4000 ISCO
Anshani seeds the Neues with humans, flora and fauna from the europeon region on Sol, mostly from the germanic areas.  The name themselves the people, or menschen.  The planet is Neues Zuhause, or New home.  Eventually this is reduced to Neues.
100 Anshani
By the first century on Earth a new Empire, the houses of the Constopnor began an FTL expansion across Earth’s Spiral Arm.
The primitive planet Earth, protected by an Anshani Sentinal Drone, was bypassed. Entry into the system was an instant death warrant from the ever vigilant robot. The Constopnor had long respected the legends of the Anshani technologies and the warnings that the life of Sol System was to develop without outside interference.
789 Constopnor

1109 Constopnor
Eight more HFTL ships including a pair of 2000 foot HFTL Freighter are now part of the Consortium. While the new empire is growing, exploration is slowing due to patrol time.
1239 Constopnor
Now 34 of the Anshani ships have been found are in flight. Astounded historians realize the Old Empire spanned this and at least three other galaxies with a hundred million known worlds.
1289 Constopnor
Over 1400 worlds in the Consortium have slowed from expansion to stagnation. Three of the Anshani light ships vanish in their rounds.
1389 Constopnor
The Constopnor feel the burden of empire as they become a police force to stop little wars from turning into larger ones. Communications between the ends of the empire are lagging as they are more reliant on the HFTL Ships.
1489 Constopnor
A Zobaxi HFTL ship scythes across Constopnor ‘Close Home’ systems leaving a path of destruction. They use it to seriously damage Opnor before being captured by three HFTL ships. The ship had been Constopnor originally and modified with Black Boxes.

Hate to dash your hopes, but Richard Tucholka was adamant that the Incursion universe is separate from the FTL:2448 universe. In fact, the Incursion setting is in the Bureau 13 universe, which means magic and the supernatural are an element.

Now, I'm not saying that you shouldn't try combining them, but understand, that's not canon to either settings. The only thing in common between the two is psionics.

Oh sure, I get that.  I've actually heard the B13 thing before somewhere.  I just want access to more aliens, and I like the idea of conflicting empires that the players are constantly slipping thru borders due to HFTL.  Conflict is fun (for me at least, maybe not for them).  Most of the writes ups for the aliens mention FTL governments and such... so I just thought adding the history together would give me a reason to put them there.

I haven't thought about adding in magic, but who knows... what are jedi after all but space wizards.

Thanks for the input :)

Is there much more detail about the Kymar that I should be aware of?  Outside of what is found in the species description in the FTL:2448 Book 1? 

The Celestar Tyranny seems to be the defining event for much of their modern era.  Dealing with that subjugation will be the motivation behind most of the events of the adventure I'm working on (at least as a setup for a campaign).
