A Space Habitat by Vumpalouska
A Space Habitat
This large space habitat is approximately 50 kilometers long and is home to some 1.2 million people. One end of the habitat (the one closer to the viewer) houses the main docking areas for interplanetary ships (as well as four rarely used docking arms for larger, interstellar vessels and immense Oort mining ships), while the other end houses the industrial fabricator and heat management facilities. By the 35th century, habitats like this house over 60 % of the total human population: the controlled, safe environment of a habitat is usually preferred over the chaos of planetary biospheres - not to mention, constructing a habitat is generally much easier than terraforming an entire world.

Cylinder is the most common habitat design found in the human space; they are rather sturdy, provide plenty of living space and their rotation generates a nice illusion of gravity for surface dwelling beings. Other types of habitats exist as well - the second most common design is a torus, and more unusual designs include free-fall habitats with no artificial gravity whatsoever. Habitats can be on independent orbits around their parent star, but most orbit planets or moons, often in groups or swarms.

Map of the Human Space by Vumpalouska
Map of the Human Space
Map of the Human Space from my scifi universe, along with short descriptions of the five major star nations that are considered the "big players" of interstellar politics. Most of humanity live in independent star systems, and even these five have serious issues with inter-system communications, the interstellar distances being what they are.

Gwailo by Vumpalouska
Gwailo
A character from my scifi universe.

* * *

The gwailos are genderless, vat-grown slaves of the Outsiders. Genetically loyal, they outnumber their masters by more than twenty to one and perform all the menial tasks onboard the massive Grand Liner starships. The gwailos are immensely strong, surprisingly fast and completely expendable; the Outsiders often use them as soldiers during raids and boarding actions. In the Outsider-Federation war, massive armies of gwailos engaged in ground operations and were left behind to fight to the death when the Ousiders finally retreated from Federation space.

The gwailos are able to survive in extreme conditions, including near-vacuum and heavily irradiated areas. They lack digestive systems and are instead "fed" by pumping nutrient fluid directly into their circulatory system. Their mental abilities and capacity for independent thought remain a matter of debate, but they are widely believed to have very little if any initiative on their own - they exist only to serve their masters.

Zambu by Vumpalouska
Zambu
A character from my scifi universe.

* * *

Name: Zambu
Date of Birth: Unknown
Height: 178 cm
Weight: 60 kg
Species: Spacer (Homo Novus Astrum) cyborg
Occupation: Gunnery officer
Affiliation: The Outsiders, Hawking Clan

Master Gunner Zambu is a member of the Captain's advisory council on the Grand Liner Rhubarb Sky. The care and maintenance of the ship's weapon systems (as well as individual crew members' personal weapons) are his responsibility. As the Rhubarb Sky is unusually heavily armed even for a Grand Liner, his position grants him quite a bit of power and responsibility. Like Captain Darridan, Zambu was among the original crew of the 61 Cygni colonization mission in the 25th century, which makes him a first-generation Outsider. He seems to have an almost slavish devotion to his Captain and is dangerously eager to put the Rhubarb Sky's heaviest weapons to use whenever trouble arises. During long interstellar voyages, when the Grand Liner's transhuman crew occupy themselves with various RPG simulations, Zambu prefers, rather paradoxically, the role of a healer.

Captain Darridan by Vumpalouska
Captain Darridan
A character from my scifi universe.

* * *

Name: Darridan
Date of Birth: Unknown
Height: 212 cm
Weight: 197 kg
Species: Human cyborg, subspecies unknown
Occupation: Grand Liner Captain
Affiliation: The Outsiders, Hawking Clan

Captain Darridan is the lord and master of the Grand Liner Rhubarb Sky. Like all Outsider Captains, he is very old and heavily augmented to the point of being mostly synthetic. Having spent centuries jacked in to his ship's central AI, there is very little disctinction between the two by now.

Captain Darridan is one of the senior members of the Hawking Clan, and it is known that he was among the original crew of the ill-fated colonization mission to 61 Cygni in the late 25th century, just before the dawn of FTL spaceflight. Non-Outsiders who've had dealings with Darridan have described him as inhumanly intelligent and often very polite, but also ruthless, amoral and arrogant. During the Outsider-Federation war of 3307-3360, Darridan was responsible for several damaging attacks against the Harmonic Federation, and the crew of the Rhubarb Sky were noted as being particularly cruel in their treatment of prisoners.

After the War, Captain Darridan and his crew have been keeping away from Federation systems (where they are wanted for war crimes), staying in the more remote areas of human space instead. In recent decades, they have been involved in various high-end research projects in Evermind system.

Ok... It's finally done. I just watched the (in)famous Turkish Star Wars, a film so bad it quite possibly marks the lowest point in the history of cinema. There are no words to adequately describe what I just saw, so I will merely link the film here. Watch it at your own discretion, for it may cause permanent brain damage.

There is also a great review (with clips and captures) at the Spoony Experiment website: spoonyexperiment.com/turkish-s…

'Nuff said.

The Hat is all-important to me these days... Although I was rather cute and cuddly even before I had it: vumpalouska.deviantart.com/art…

It's also the name of my region...


Creative, eh? I haven't taken part in any RPs in quite some time, though... I'm planning to remedy that, however.

And who would you be, then?
