Prelude – Year 2011 through 2025.
It finally happened. The war to end all wars broke out in the Fall of 2011 and one faction soon proved to be more ruthless than even the Japanese Samurais. More cunning than anyone else. And with better planning then even the most hard-core communists. And since they belonged to no one country, a worldwide federation of people committed to conquering the world – To exploit the masses – To rule the lower classes – To unite in their own image the fractured people of Humanity! The faction would be known as The Paradoxians to the future generations and the result was the Paradoxian Federation which came into effect at the end of the war in 2023.
The Paradoxians next turned their eyes away from the Earth. There was nothing more to invade, no enemies (except a few rebels from time to time) and no places to explore. It was at that time that the Scientists devised a radical new thinking. This was called the “Trans-Newtonian Theory”. It was defined and put into effect on the 1st of January 2025, along with a few additional reseach projects.
At this time, Earth was home to 800 mio. Inhabitants. There were 40 Research Laboratories in operation around the world and 8 Shipyards in various size could be converted to building spaceships. It was deemed that the majority of the industry would be converted to modern set-up, but no ships or Ground units would be available before updated research was made.
A call therefore went out to the Paradoxians. There would be need for administrators and naval officers – for scientists and for groups force commanders. There would be New frontiers to explore – New resources to exploit – New projects to examine and hopefully new Species to conquer!!
I am not going to go into complete details at this time, to keep some surprises for the actual gameplay. What I will say is:
Population: 800 mio.
Research Facilities: 40
Swarm and Invaders OFF (For now)
Political Reliability OFF
Realistic Promotions ON – To offset this, any Paradoxian which sign up for duty will get a medal improving their score to ensure promotions faster than NPC's.
Jump Gates OFF
Inexperienced Fleet Penalty ON
Real World Stars ON
Current Galaxy Map can be seen below 1/1-2060.
