I don't think we'd be doing our job if we did a space roleplay without aliens. We'll certainly make you rethink your definition of what an "Alien" is by the end of the series though.

Have you considered the issue of timezones? You state that it's episodic and the server will be opened in spaced intervals as opposed to 24/7, which brings in the issue of it possibly only being populated by the time it's hosted in. That's a worry of mine. I don't want to have to stay up late or be up early to be able to roleplay on the server.

Yeah, that was a concern from the start. It's one of the reasons we're also preparing to go up 24/7 if there's the demand. We're going to do our best to host episodes at times and days most people will find accessible. Friday and Saturday nights are going to be prime time for episodes, but we'll also be running smaller ones during the week. It's one of those things you can never fully address, episodes or not, but we're going to do our best to make the server as accessible as possible.

Additionally, if you miss an episode, there will be a run-down of what happened on the forums. You won't ever be left out of the know. We'll also be doing stuff like quoting logs of the highlights so you don't miss out on the action.

No, it doesn't. We didn't think Amongst the Stars would work so well in a smaller scale roleplay server. The setting we are using will be fleshed out in future updates. If you're a fan of AtS, I'm pretty confident you'll love it.

There's a lot of similarities. That RP was going to be based on a big capital ship type thing and the fighter pilots stationed there. This is going to have much more room for less military characters. More Star Trek than BSG.

On pain of death I can't say much about this, but our RP will lack a 2d "evilguy" antagonist group. There will be conflict, but not simplistic good vs evil. Situations which first seem simple will unravel to become complex, even morally confusing. Whatever your characters make of that will form the basis of the server's plot.

What races will there be? Will you be able to play as your own race? Could you perhaps apply for playing your own alien race?

If I recall from somewhere, is it that alien life has yet to be discovered?

How far has Humanity developed at the point of this RP's beginning? And, similar to Muzzy's post, has alien life, in -any- form whatsoever, be it basic undersea life on Europa or primitive life on a colony world been discovered?

Humans will be the main focus of the story. We'll have aliens (Some more alien than others) and they might even get on the ship, but the focus will remain on human characters.

Tomorrow's update is going to involve a lot of stuff about the universe Futurism is set in, so I'm not going to outline a whole lot right now. What I will say is that at the time our story begins, no alien life has been discovered. Tomorrow's update will reveal a lot about the level of technology and other background information. You'll also get a glimpse into what makes Futurism such an interesting concept. This is going to be far more than a simple tale of exploration.

Absolutely! Today's update will unlock a whole load of information about the setting for you guys to check out. We'd love for you to write lore and character backstories.

If you've got ideas which you'd rather share with the team and not publicly over the forum, feel free to add me to steam or send me a forum PM.

We'll have lots more information on that for you in Tuesday's update. For now, I can tell you that you're going to have a pretty wide scope. You'll be free to make a character with a focus in science, security, engineering... pretty much anything. Our goal here is to give you as much range for customization as possible.

So, has Humanity developed colonies/outposts across the Solar System by this point, yet?

Colonies would be going a bit far. Research stations, and automated mining facilities are up basically all over the solar system, and in the asteroid belt. The whole idea of having big colonies on other planetary bodies never took off, more info to come on that.

how are people going to acquire the various suits? will they pay for them ICly, or be forcibly assigned them via some ship armory?
