Welcome to Convergence, a galaxy of battles and politics. Numerous Factions contest planets each for their own purposes. Will you join one and assist their conquests? Or will you become a Lone Wolf and carve your own path to becoming a Galactic Legend? Almost anything is possible in the Galaxy of Convergence.

Jump into our Science-Fantasy universe and join other writers to create compelling galactic stories, or just have some fun! We recommend joining our Discord for the best plotting experience.

Previously
A deadly virus affecting both organics and robotics swept the northern sectors of the Galaxy, sparking a war between the afflicted and the remaining factions. After nearly a year of defensive battles and co-ordinated operations, the war finally ended at the Battle of Ruin. The end of the war saw increased relations between the GSU, Imperium and Santori as they all agreed on a two year ceasefire to mend the damages caused by the crisis.

After these two years the factions signed the Santori Accords, an agreement proclaiming their united efforts to uphold Celestial law, including the protection of innocent life in case of another galactic threat. Following this meeting the Highrock Clans decided to join the Santori Protectorate, expanding their territory by almost double.

Current Events
The Reich, a returning faction of magic-haters, resurface and initiate a purge of the planet Ordriey, destroying it entirely in the process. This event has made all of the Major Factions uneasy, even though each of them has bigger concerns of their own. Not only are there issues for these powers to deal with, but more factions are rising from the ashes of the Helix War, populating the galaxy once again.

Meanwhile, the Celestial Architect Sam'anar has discovered a way to reverse large parts of the Convergence, sending back many of the planets it had brought into the galaxy. Whilst this move has saved many from unwanted threats, it has also shifted the layout of the galaxy drastically. Because of this, new star-charts have been drawn out with Hyperlanes, allowing them to show the quickest and safest routes between planets.

Convergence Warpspace

Introduction - Cosmic Plane
The Cosmic Plane is a different, hidden dimension of space that is existent across the entire Convergence Multiverse. The realm is composed of pure, volatile white Cosmic Energy and virtually inaccessible to most civilisations, except those that have reached the highest levels of technological sophistication. The existence of this realm allows for the Convergence Multiverse to thrive without fading away or violently collapsing. In the Cosmic Realm, there are far more than just three dimensions that exist in standard space, which is outside the comprehension of most mortals existing in the Convergence universe.

Primary and Secondary Layers of the Cosmic Plane
The realm itself is also composed of two primary layers. The first layer is the one just described, filled with white cosmic energy that is almost completely inaccessible and extremely hostile for any spacecraft, even the most heavily shielded. Where or how these white cosmic particles come about is unknown.

The second layer is far more accessible and can be used by virtually any civilisation that has developed even the most rudimentary type of faster-than-light travel. This layer consists of fewer white cosmic energy particles, which therefore makes it less dangerous for ships to travel through. It is this layer of space that is typically referred to as “warpspace/”slipspace/subspace” and is the means through which all civilisations travel vast distances in the cosmos, through the use of FTL drives.

Technological advancements in FTL travel
Level 1:
This type is for civilisations who have just discovered FTL drives. The technology is rudimentary at the start, but it gets the job done. The drive allows spacecraft to safely transition between normal and warpspace without the craft being torn apart and vapourised by the alternate realm’s harsh environment. Travel between star systems in the same sector can take days to weeks while travel to other sectors, especially those across the galaxy can take weeks to months to accomplish. Jumps are not always pinpoint accurate either, with spaceships possibly ending up a few kilometers away from the intended system

Level 2:
Civilisations who have been space-faring for many years now are likely to have produced more advanced FTL drives. These engines enable spacecraft to traverse systems in the same sector within a few minutes to hours while travel to other sectors, especially those across the galaxy could take a few hours to days. Warpspace jumps are a lot more accurate.

Level 3:
Only very few civilisations would be able to reach their stage, and in doing so it would take a long time. Travel to virtually anywhere in the galaxy is instantaneous. Destination arrivals are pinpoint accurate. Civilisations who achieve this speed of travel often set their sights outside their galactic neighbourhood and begin to travel to and explore other galaxies. Depending on the distance to the galaxy traveled, the duration of the trip can take from several months to years due to the vaster distances covered in comparison to the mere distances between stars.
