First of all, I would like to thank Jollyreaper and Thucydides for the inspiration. Though it took me a while to figure out how to work the "Blogger Page" feature......
in case there are those of you who are wondering, this is simply a page
where I place my other ramblings of my thoughts in a space opera idea
that I had developed mentally and with aid of other sources such as
Tabletop Game engines since I was a young lad in the year 1995-6 or so
of the Common Era Calendar. It's a story based mostly on my own passion
for anime, but reinforced in key locations with the convention of hard
sci-fi to at least give some scientific and technological plausibility
all thanks to the Atomic Rockets website and the Rocketpunk Manifesto blog. A setting that I had dubbed the Crongus Wars.
Okay, it's not the most original of titles, but like I mentioned earlier, it's a work in progress.
and before I do forget, though I am opening my chaotic thought process
of this little hard space opera setting of mine, there are a few key
topics that are considered off limits to discussion whatsoever.
1) There is a saying that goes along the lines of "Causality, Relativity, FTL travel: chose any two." .
I, however will pick all three thank you very much. How I will answer
the relativity and causality issues I will describe in later entries.
2) It has been argued that space fighters don't make any sense from a military, scientific, and economic point of view .
My response to such a thing is simple: My story, my rules. I may bend,
alter and even omit certain aspects of my Space Opera setting, but there
are such things I will not remove under any circumstances so don't even
think that you can convince me to do otherwise. Besides, I have my own
ideas on getting around that little problem that I'll address in future
has also been argued that giant robots, especially those found in the
media of Japanese Anime (aka Mecha) make even less sense than space
fighters even on the ground .
And I would not only say "my story, my rules", but also that not only
did I mention that much of the flavor of this setting is derived from
what anime I have seen and would be rather difficult to replicate what I
have witnessed without them (not impossible, just not my style), but
that it kills the dramatic tension of the lone soldier against the odds.
Besides, not only would I be following the Rule of Cool, but I just also wasted hours of your time from those weblinks alone. That's what you get for trying to change my mind.
So long as these commandments are adhered to, we shall have peace.
