Mere mortals think you are just a ball of atomic fusion fire hanging in the cosmos but you know better. You are god, a star-lord tied to and fueled a star and with power to shape the contents of its gravity well. In time, there will be Life for you to manipulate and control and shape, using it to further your own ends and ensure your existence remains eternal. But lets not get ahead of ourselves. It all begins with the Big Bang, when all the sudden the entire universe is created from a single source. And it is where you are born. CHARACTER GENERATION TIME Part 1 What kind of star are you? Unknown to mortals, every star has unusual effects on Life and influence the amount of power a Star-Lord possesses. [ ] White- White stars produce all around average life and have average star power. [ ] Yellow- The most favorable type of sun for Life, creating rapidly growing and expansionist societies at cost to stablity and Star Power. [ ] Orange- Orange stars have average Star Power, but they have an unusual effect of making Life that gets along well with other Life. [ ] Binary Star - Twin stars bound together. They have lots of star power, but is hard on Life and produces slow but hardy Life due to common hazards on planets. [ ] Protostar- A barely formed stellar gas pile only just turning into a sun. Lots of star power, and influences life into being curious and inventful. [ ] Other?- There are many kinds of stars out there, these are only the most common. Do you dare roll the dice for something greater? * * * * * * Part 2 A star is nothing without some planets to play with. Small compared to your magnificence and without sentient minds of their own, you can seed them with Life. You start with two minor worlds, an asteroid belt and hydrogen gas giant, and one of the following planets of your choice where Life begins. [ ] Terran- A mix of land and water geology with easy to exploit luxury resources. Good for economics. [ ] Jungle- With dense vegetation and active biosphere, this world can support a very large population. [ ] Ocean- Predominantly covered in water with isolated small continents and island chains, the oceans are rich in underwater life and resources. [ ] Arid- Water is scarce here, and it may be hard for Life to survive, but Arid worlds are good for rapid Stellar Improvements. [ ] Tundra- despite being partially dominated by ice and snow, Tundra worlds are excellent for science and tend to possess very special anomalies and rare resources. [ ] Random- What crazed being would be willing to allow the dice of the universe decide where their Life shall reside? Chance for very exotic worlds. * * * * * * Part 3 As a sentient star-being, you got some very subtle but powerful powers to play with. They are divided into metaspace anomalies which you can then cast and use on star systems. Careful however, as they use up stellar power. You start with three. [ ] Fear- An aura of fear will dissuade outsiders from messing with the worlds you cast it on, and makes your worlds more intimidating. [ ] Courage- The use of courage will uplift some of your Life and turn them into demigods for a time. Expensive in power, but can be applied in many ways. [ ] Logic- The power of logic will strike a bolt of inspiration into Life and spur technological development. But it may also cause issues if used too much. [ ] Protector- You can actively defend your worlds via manipulation of warpspace to destroy enemies. Power intensive. [ ] Mind- You can create sub-stellar minds centered around a single world to govern it and guide its development. They might get plans of their own however. [ ] Zeal- Worship! Religion! All obey the star-lord! You get a little extra Star Power via worship and Life is more obedient to your wishes. [ ] Corruption- You can cast corruption, slowly consuming worlds in an orgy of violence, death, and resource wastage. [ ] Avatar- you can directly manifest yourself among Life to do some fine-tuning. While only a disposable mortal shell at first, you can refine it later on. [ ] Other?- What is this strange power?
