What Do We Know - Titan Spires
December 25, 2012. Christmas. An annual Terra Firma holiday before the new year. But this was not for celebration, religious contemplation, and gifts under a green, twinkling tree in someone’s house. Humans, however, were recovering from the Wave’s devastating, life-altering effects that could get worse by the minute. Terrans appeared all over, demonized as living weapons and studied in hopes for a cure. The United States gathered the bodies of the enthralled and plan to refill government offices to retain national security. The European Union races to prevent widespread hysteria against magic.

What Do We Know - Slipspace Transportation
Any sentient species in the galaxy can sum up the major transportation systems by one word: resourceful. When you can’t use one method for space travel, others are available, for a price. Simpler species, like the humans of Terra Firma, could assume there is one method just by calculating the vast distances between worlds, their current physics mathematics, their technology, and scores of science fiction stories most species fall asleep over. And stick with it. Such narrow-minded reality thinking is not tolerated. It’s best to remind them what’s available, starting with the cheapest. Cryogenics is still active, as intrave

What Do We Know - Slipspace Communication and UTs
Throughout the Galactic Republic, Slipspace is rudimentary to the government’s power, the lifeblood to the Milky Way galaxy. But the technology is not a permanent stream; this universe is bound to its limitations. Being simple in design, an artificially grown crystal with a specific ion matrix is used as a fuel source and the true representation of hybrid tech. It is hard to manufacture but incredibly self-reliant for all communications. But what is Slipspace? This alternate dimension does not mimic our dimension as one would theorize and what not scientists and wizards could explain. It is a dimension made entirely of energy—ch

What Do We Know - The Galactic Republic
The Milky Way galaxy; quiet from afar but busy from within. Humans on Terra Firma still conflict with each other whether life exists outside the Sol system, or their planet is the universe’s center to be that naive, while fighting over who’s religion is right or wrong. But it’s no secret. The galaxy is full of life, and far more established than what humans could comprehend. Multitudes of species, races, cultures, technology, and magic, among seventeen billion worlds. Many forms of flesh, elemental, energy, cosmic, autonomous, and synthetic. Species that want to explore, trade, communicate, conquer, and perhaps kill, all

What Do We Know - Containment Protocol and After
On New Year’s Day morning, the White House was still under lockdown since the nation-wide massacre. Bodies were still being picked up across the capitol by the truckload, cars and infrastructure damaged to untold sums of repair costs, and people had their faces to the live news of the Oval Office. Sarah Winchester, Secretary of the Interior who worked and educated herself out of Los Angeles’ Skid Row when she was a child, survived the massacre in Capitol Hill after hiding in a closet with three others with a fire axe in her hand. Scores of red-eyed humans that were employees and civilians slaughtered people, each one chanting, &#

Walls and Cracks
With every wall you come across, it is either made of bricks and mortar, solid concrete, plywood, or anything your imagination makes it to be. Walls in life exist, either by the mind or in reality, always there or self-created, and they always come with fear and doubt in an uncertain future. But there exists cracks. These cracks are hope. They can be small as a micrometer, a pin hole, a pipe, a tunnel, or as large as a canyon. Sometimes you feel them, see them, but most of all, they are hidden from you, in plain sight. It takes skill, luck, hard work, perseverance, and mentorship to find these cracks because no matter what, you strive to su
