PostSubject: Worlds of Wonder   Fri Sep 28, 2012 2:25 pm

I thought, maybe we just want a collection of worlds from different franchises, maybe for fun, or the RP. (as recently, much random stuff gets warped in there from other universes)
Please use canon information, if available, link to the respective wiki. It also doesn´t have to be sci-fi. Also, fantasy is explained with the Force here.
Here are some points I want you to cover at the worlds:

Name: Name of planet or the known area on said planet.

Franchise: What franchise is that world from? Also state here which canon you mean if there are several.

Technology: Technology tier as for the Halo Standards and short description of notable tech unusual for that tier.

Leading race(s): What race(s) are determaining the cultural and social live on this planet?

Flora: Any unusual plants?

Fauna: Any unusual animals?

Military: Does the world have militaries? If yes, describe a bit.

Gods: Many worlds have gods. Which ones does this world have?

Resistance level: How difficult would it be to invade that world? Why?

OP: Would it be OP to start a faction of the RP with this planet? Why?

Other stuff like pics, youtube vids and other points are optional.


PS: If I happen to add any new points here, you are encouraged to update your world sheets corresponding to that, but you don´t have to.

Name: Pokemon World

Franchise: Pokemon, the Anime Version with games as secondary.

Technology: Tier 4, but with highly advanced teleporters, medical equipment and mad scientist´s stuff

Leading race(s): Humanity, as usual.

Flora: There are those berries, which act as doping.

Fauna: Pokemon, as expected.

Military: As terrorists threating to destroy the world are fought by the police, propably none.

Gods: Legendary Pokemon

Resistance level: An Invasion would be futile due to the battlepower of Pokemon. There is no military, but once there is evidence that they had war, and they can propably assemble several militias of Pokemon-Trainers which then will stop any takeover from progressing further. Only solution: orbital bombardemant until ther´s nothing of interest left. Still, I don´t know if the Legendary Pokemon will let you live on then...

OP: Yes, OP. The funny part is that it´s OP because of its infantry.

Name: Coruscant

Franchise: Star Wars

Technology: 1-2 (Includes parts of both)

Leading Races: Depends on the era. Probably human.

Flora: Very little

Fauna: Very little

Military: Depends on era, either Republic Navy/GAR, Imperial Navy/Army, New Republic Defense Force, Yuuzhan Vong Navy, Galactic Alliance armed forces, Imperial Navy (a different one), or several others. Mostly quite large, although not all that much of it will be stationed at the planet itself at most times.

Gods: The Force is not a god, but it will do.

Resistance Level: Like, a million? Coruscant is one huge city, with a population numbering in the trillions. Although the planet has been conquered militarily several times, no enemy has ever been able to hold the planet for very long. Even if you technically win the battle, there's just no way to totally clean your enemies out. Even Yuuzhan Vong total terraforming didn't do it.

OP: No single part is particularly overpowered, but taken altogether, yes it is.

Name: Trantor

Franchise: The Foundation novels by Isaac Asimov, published in 1951.

Description: The capital of the 12,000-year-old Galactic Empire.the capital of the 12,000-year-old Galactic Empire. The planet was one massive city that covered the entire surface (sound familiar?). Though the empire appears stable and powerful, it is slowly decaying in ways that parallel the decline of the Western Roman Empire. At the beginning of the Book series, Trantor is a juggernaut of industry and power. Governing a 12,000 year old empire that spanned the entire Milky Way. It had fleets of enormous starcraft that could instantly leap from any point in the Galazy to another. These massive fleets were needed to keep the planet supplied, since it had no natural resources of its own left.


Technology: 1

Leading race(s): Humanity

Flora: Non, except in cultivated gardens.

Fauna: Non, except perhaps pets.

Military: It is the seat of power for the Galactic Empire and thus has a mighty fleet of enormous cruisers that can instantly jump from there to any other point in the Galaxy.

Gods: Greed

Resistance level: Impossible at the Empire's height. Only the corrosion of greed and corruption proved strong enough to bring this mighty planet down.

OP: Depends on when they start on it.

I read a book in that series, I believe. It was about a young officer questioning an old man who then proceeded to implicate him and his commanding officer in a corruption stint, saving something.

Can't remember the details (as if that wasn't apparent), but that was truly an engaging novel.

Name: Earth

Franchise: (maybe) Real Universe

Technology Tier: 4 (space age)

Leading Races: Human and Repti...

Flora: Some trees here, some grass there. OHH! MOSS!

Fauna: Domestic livestock, Many documented and undocumented wild species (including the delicious manatee)!

Military: The planet does not have a single, unified force. Instead, it just bickers with itself.

Gods: Many, one reason for the bickering.

Resistance level: Has a lot of nukes, but doesn't really pose a threat to any invading force.

OP: Negatively OP.

Then you have probably never read any of his books. Had you read any of, for example, the I, Robot series, you would not be saying that. And before someone gets confused, I mean I, Robot the book, not the movie. They have the same name and they actually put a scene from the movie on the cover of one of the editions of the book, but they aren't connected at all. They're totally different stories and I don't think they're even set in the same world.

My comment was in reference to the I, Robot book, in fact. I couldn't make it past the first 50 pages, not because I can't appreciate detail, but because there's so much of it that you get swamped and, subsequently, bored.

I'd take Zahn over Asimov any day.

Is Zahn the author of Old Man's War? If so, I agree that the first 2 books of the series were good, but, like Orson Scott Card, they definately because less and less readable the further you get into the series.

While I agree that some of his books are a bit hard to get through, if you consider yourself a fan of science fiction, then you should definitely read the Foundation series.

Old Man's War was John Scalzi. Zahn wrote the Quadrail series, and the Cobra trilogy, and a bunch of others. He's very good.

You do mean the I, Robot book with all the short stories about the robot tester guys, right?

I'm assuming the book I read was a compilation. It was lying in my dad's dusty old basement and had one of those bland retro covers.

Hmm. The question is whether it was actually the one by Asimov, or whether it was the novelization of the movie, which is a separate thing. The correct version is basically a series connected short stories, which feature many of the same characters. They're all by Asimov himself, and they were all written for that book, so it's not really a short story collection. It's just sorta like one.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it was the latter. From what I can remember it was all white save for a brilliantly illustrated thin horizontal strip on the cover and "ASIMOV" at the top in that annoying block faced font that just tells you something is pre-2001.

The cover of the book doesn't necessarily reflect what's inside. Like I said, my copy of the book actually has a scene from the movie on the cover, and they're not really related. The movie was sorta based on the book, but it's a completely different plot.

The movie was crud. But it used massive, so who cares.

I am fairly confident what I read was not a novelization of the movie. It was a hardcover and, as I said, it was dusty after years of no use. And as previously noted everything was very drawn out, something not typical of today's books, especially those using action-packed movies as fulcrum points.

Hmm. OK. Well, if you didn't like it, you didn't like it, but that says deep and horrible things about your personality. tongue
