S.A.D. Week-by-week Story Setting Information (Spoiler alerts)
« on: February 11, 2010, 03:24:23 am »
I've reconsidered holding information of the S.A.D. universe, so although I won't give any information of the campaign itself, I'm now more than happy to share the setting and characters involved.  This is my treat to everyone on Omnimaga, it will not be posted on UnitedTi.  However, I'm not going to be able to give all the information at once, as the title implies.  The S.A.D. manual will include all this information.

There will be three types of information on this topic: Characters, Universe, and Timeline.

There are people who can speak two languages, and they are called bilingual.  There are people who speak three languages and are therefore trilingual.  Then there are people who speak one language, and these people are called Americans.

Timeline

2099: Lewis Pagfoln invents the primative form of the Reclauda, though it is not named so at the time.  In its early form, it is not designed for flexible flying.  However, it is the first space ship capable of lightspeed, and Pagfoln is awarded a Noble Peace Prize.

Nice ^^


Just try to make sure to not spoil way too much though :P. Someone who has a lot of free time and patience would probably be able to know almost the entire story of Illusiat 13 by searching #omnimaga logs since Early 2009
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Agreed.  I'm only going to show what one would find in the manual, although if people really want to be surprised, that's why the "Spoiler Alert" warning is displayed

Rather than answering that directly, I'll just say that one of these weeks, the answer will be on this topic.  Sorry, but it helps keep the excitement up

Sure.  That's cool too.  I'd just go with A.D. 9001 for now. :P

Universe: Inca

Star System: Eralo (Original System Unknown)
Population: Uninhabited (Originally 36,000)
Diameter: 164,000 km
Dominant Terrain: Arctic
Geography: One continent, several mountain chains
Orbital Period: Five Earth years
Rotation Period: .6 Earth days
Additional Characteristics: Nothing important

Inca was once a life-supporting planet, several thousand light years away from the solar system.  Bridges across caynons and the ruins of architecture leave evidence that the lifeforms on Inca were intelligent.  However, Inca was undiscovered by any extra-terristerial life for quite some time.

Undiscovered, that is, until its sun died.  A dead sun, of course, meant Inca lost its orbit, and traveled through unmapped space.  During that time, it transformed from a living planet into an icy rock.  And because the lifeforms on Inca could not evacuate, they died with it.

By pure chance, Inca came into orbit of the Eralo star system several thousand years later, in 2420.  But no one could know just how much interest...or why...the entire galaxy would take in this one dead planet once it was discovered...


So now you know, ztrumpet and Omnimaga, S.A.D. takes place in 321 AL (where AL is "After Lightspeed"), that is, 2420 AD

Timeline: 2104 (5 AL)

With Louis's invention of the Falcon (the primitive form of the Reclauda), and with everyone fully recovered from World War IV, money is poured into the space program.  With additional support from the Ptaloids, the Earth Space Exploration (ESEO) is formed.  Several hundreds of Falcons are built to explore space and to use it to better improve the knowledge and life of mankind.  Relationships with the Ptaloids are further strengthed with the technology of lightspeed, as the distance between Earth and Coronas was shortened from several days to mere hours.

With all these drastic and life-changing moments, the importance of the accomplishment of lightspeed could not be overstated.  It was this year that Earth first coined AL ("After Lightspeed") as a year counter.


--------------------------

I need to take the time to point out that, as you notice, there's a lot of terms yet to define, such as the Ptaloids.  They will definitely be described, but since I'm only posting on this topic once a week, it will take time.
