    To say that the Grand conjunction was unexpected would be a gross understatement. Such an event was unprecedented – travel between universes had been perfected, and naturally existing gateways between worlds had already been discovered, but for so many gateways to be opened simultaneously, all leading to the same destination? Nothing of that scope had ever occurred to our knowledge, barring one example that was only distantly related to our own situation.

    The Assault by the Sekhmet was ultimately of minor concern, but its aftermath proved to possess far greater consequences than expected. We are now faced with a massive number of beings who have no way to return to their homes. Perhaps we will be able to unravel this mystery, but until then, they will be our problem to deal with.

    ….Oh well. Never a dull moment in this little universe of ours.

    • Amril Dumuzid, Order of the Archivists
    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

    Welcome to Far From Home. This story is a side project to my PA SI, Conquest In The Name Of Advnacement (which needs a better title). It takes place after Arc 7 of my story, where a massive amount of portals leading to other universes opened up, stranding a huge number of beings from various species inside our Commander’s hub universe.

    Also, I should probably note that the version of this story on QQ is HORRIBLY out of date with the other versions. It’s more than two hundred chapters behind. So look up Conquest In The Name Of Advancement on SpaceBattles or Sufficient Velocity to get the whole story until I actually update the damn thing.


    This sidestory RP was created due to interest from my readers, but is open to everyone.

    Now for some notes:

    • You are permitted to use original characters and settings. I will needle you a bit for details on the setting in your character sheet, though. That being said, existing characters from tv shows, video games, anime, comics, movies, and other sources will needs my approval.
    • This is mostly a for fun RP. Combat concerns are not very high. I have other RPs set in the same shared universe that will be more combat heavy, but this one is more focused on dealing with multiple people being separated from their homes and families and stuck on a truly foreign world, with many species of sapient beings they didn’t even know existed.
    • Please refrain from making overpowered characters. Even if this is a combat-light RP, I don’t want anyone who is strong enough to overpower everyone else – it makes for a boring game. I made a point of crafting an enemy tailor-made to give my Commander SI a challenge every time to fights them, and he has an unlimited army of killbots that can be customized to solve any problem.
    • You can also play as people that were already living in the Hub universe. The list of races for that ‘ethnicity’ are as follows:
    • Human
    • Sectoid (XCOM Enemy Unknwon)
    • Viper (XCOM 2)
    • Muton (XCOM Enemy Unknown)
    • Ethereal (The Bureau: XCOM Declassified)
    • Tenno (warframe)
    • Grineer (Warframe)
    • Corpus (also Warframe)
    • Infested (also also warframe)
    • Origin System Colonist (also also also warframe, please be more specific – are they Ostron, Solaris, or a different group)
    • Orokin (also from warframe, gag wore itself out)
    • Sentient (warframe)
    • Progenitor (Civilization: Beyond Earth)
    • Arnor/Dreadlord (Galacitc Civilizations)
    • Drengin (Galactic Civilizations)
    • Korx (Gal Civ (abbreviation of Galactic Civilizations))
    • Iconians (Gal Civ)
    • Drath (Gal Civ)
    • Thalans (Gal Civ)
    • Altarian (Gal Civ)
    • Arcean (Gal Civ)
    • Yor (Gal Civ)
    • Torians (Gal Civ)
    • Krynn (Gal Civ)
    • Pretty much every major power from Warhammer 40k and Warhammer Fantasy (Chaos, the Tyranids, the Vampire Counts/Coast, Chaos Dwarves, Heretic Astartes, Drukhari, and the Orkz are mostly excluded from this, as are the skaven)
    • Pretty much every major race from Halo (the forerunners are included here, the Flood are not)
    • Regarding the other RPs I mentioned: this is essentially a ‘bank’ for characters in my other RPs, so when I get to writing those, you can use characters from this RP in other ones I have planned (Fractured Fantasy, Operation Outbreak) as well as port them over here once those RPs have concluded if you want to have more fun with them.
    • THIS RP IS ALWAYS ACCEPTING NEW PLAYERS!
    • This RP will be hosted on both Spacebattles, Sufficient Velocity, and Questionable Questing. I will mostly treat them as covering different areas of the Hub, since coordinating between the three sites can be a hassle, but if you want to interact with a player on the other sites, use discord to arrange the events.
    Now, onto the Character Sheets

    Name:

    Universe of Origin (can be an original creation):

    Age:

    Gender: (can be non-standard, e.g. hermaphrodite, but only if the species in question has that gender naturally. Non-binary and transgender are also options).

    Organization They Belong To (If applicable):

    Appearance:

    Background:

    Powers/Skillset (note: can just be a person with no real special skills or powers – not everyone is extraordinary)

    What they were doing before getting sucked into the portal:

    Character Theme Song (for non-action scenes):

    Battle Theme Song (for fights):

    Where you will start (wait to fill this out until I give out possible starting positions):

    Other notes:

    • As mentioned, using Self Inserts is permitted. Jumpchains are more iffy, though.
    • The number of playable races that exist on the Hub will increase as I progress the main story.
    • If you want to have your character show up with friends, they also need sheets. But you can skip the music part for those characters.
    • Arcs will be initiated and concluded via GM PC posts.
    • If you want to back out from the story, please write a post concluding your character’s involvement in this story in some manner (this doesn’t have to kill them, just do something that gives them an excuse to not show up anymore. And please note that you are either finished with involvement in this story or are taking a break in that post).
    • While this story is being hosted on both SB and SV, you only need to post on one forum.
    • More portals will open in the future, for those of you wondering how new characters can still show up after the main portal issue is solved.
    Now, let me leave you with an example character post:

    Name: Amril Duzumid

    Universe of Origin (can be an original creation): Hub native, previously from the Civilization: Beyond Earth universe/XCOM universe (two are naturally merged together)

    Age: 17

    Gender: (can be non-standard, e.g. hermaphrodite, but only if the species in question has that gender naturally. Non-binary and transgender are also options): Male

    Organization They Belong To: Order of the Archivists (made up group) – a group dedicated to documenting the events within the Infernum Federation and ensuring that, even if hidden, the truth is not erased from history.

    Appearance: Looks to be a mixture of white and middle eastern, though the specific ethnicities are unknown. Has red hair and eyes that, ever since unlocking his psychic powers, faintly glow at all times. Tends to wear robes when working as an archivist, but otherwise wears a brown shirt and sand colored pants.

    Background: Originally hailing from t the city of Mega Primus, Amril and his family arrived in the Hub after the Commander helped save the city from attack by the Micronoid Legions. As the city was verging on a dystopia, they decided to get out while the going was good and find a new home to peacefully settle inside before things went to hell. The few years Amril has spent on the hub have been far nicer than his entire life on Mega Primus, and he is certainly happy to not have to worry about being robbed by criminals at any given time.

    Powers/Skillset: Amril possesses psychic talent, but has only recently begun to harness those powers. Beyond that, though, he has impressive journalism skills and a knack for getting to places where there are stories waiting to be discovered.

    What they were doing before getting sucked into the portal: N/A – Amril was already living in the Hub.

    Character Theme Song:


    Battle Theme Song (for fights):


    Where you will start: Capital City of Origin, the Capital World of the Hub (still deciding on the name for the city)

    Double-post: Apologies for my behavior in the Discord Server, btw.

    Edit: Decided not to join, btw.

    Edit 2: And personal apologies for any insult I said on Discord - A lot of what I said was unwarranted.

    Might rejoin, but not sure if I have the time.

    Also not sure about what fandom to source my OC from - I originally wanted Mage the Ascension or Mage the Awakening, but those might be too obscure.
