Solar System-605.5.AM-19: A Constellation of Asteroids Mined for Resources

After colonizing the Moon, humans began harvesting resources from the asteroid belt and various small natural satellites in orbit around the Earth. The most prized of these is a captured rock containing platinum-group metals. Much of the actual physical labor is performed by mining robots. These spider-like constructs tunnel through the rock under human supervision, …

Solar System-817.4.IA-8: Alien Solar System Overrun by an Invasive Species

This solar system (far from Earth) was inhabited by an advanced non-human civilization. They possessed technology that permitted them to traverse the planets orbiting their star at speed, although they had yet to establish a major presence on any extra-solar world. Their fleets of ships propelled their civilization to the cusp of greatness. A critical …

Solar System-177.2.LF-2: A System of Planets Scorched by Capricious Sun Beings

Although there are two habitable planets in this solar system, the only life that is sentient is actually found on the star they orbit.  Its surface is alive with regular flares of magnetic and coronal activity, where strange supernatural life has emerged on its own in the plasma plains of the surface. As commonly happens …

Local Group-757.4.SC-10: A Universe Home to Alien Superheroes and Cosmic Beings

This was a modern world of superheroes and supervillains.  For those people their superpowers came from alien physiology or "cosmic" forces (incomprehensibly advanced science and technology) from outer space.  The multiverse scholars who studied this world note that it was occupied by large numbers of alien civilizations and filled with starships, and system-scale post-singularity A.I.  …

Galaxy-608.3.DP-7: A Constellation of Star Systems Under the Rule of Dragons

The dominant species of this galaxy are dragons.  Though lacking any natural ability to breathe fire, they are intelligent and have front claws that function like hands, allowing for dexterous tool use.  This ingenuity, combined with their strength and size (four meters tall and with a five meter wingspan), made them the dominant technological power …

Universe-958.4.SW-3: A Space Opera Universe of FTLS Magic

Space is incomprehensibly big.  But shortcuts through space exist.  This is not the science fiction invention of faster-than-light travel, but done through the ritual casting of a hyperspace travel magic spell.  The aliens that practice this space-time magic manipulate paths through space to create routes and roads for quick access to other planets.  Curiously, no …

Luna-626.5.LN-4: A Lunarpunk Moon Colony of Post-Modern Witchcraft

Far from Earth and removed from many of its problems, humanity's moon bases form a series of connected structures across the surface of the Moon.  These are partly exposed domes and partly underground bunkers, joined together through a spidery network of tunnels.  Each habitat is self sustaining, even the smaller fringe towns. The largest module …

Sol-605.5.SC-3: A Solar System With Earth’s Colonists

Mars was the first planet colonized.  Mankind's best hope for survival on a climate-change ruined Earth (beyond repairing Earth itself), Mars' colonists live primarily underground.  The ceiling of the caverns simulates day/night-cycles with solar-powered light fixtures.  Life on Mars is hard. Spacecraft and vehicle technology allows people to shuttle between solar system bodies.  Whether in …

Starfinder Stat Block: Void Fish

The space whale must have fought valiantly against whatever star kraken strangled the life out of it, and now its desiccating corpse was flourishing with scavengers. Whole shoals of void fish continued to fly around, picking off bits of flesh with their sets of three jaws. Vadaria would occasionally pause for a moment to enjoy the pirouettes and seemingly playful spins these wild space-faring creatures displayed.
