Alastair Reynolds, one of my favourite science fiction authors, introduced me to the idea of the Future History in his Revelation Space series. From the space operas of Chasm City to Galactic North, Reynolds’ narrative spoke of struggle on a grand scale within an inspiring science fiction setting, and I can’t more highly recommend his work.
Flash forward to today, and I give you my briefest of Future Histories to set if not the tone, then the setting of Mecha Strike Arena out for you. Please have a read of A Future History, in brief to see how humanity within the Strikeverse (boy do I need to figure out a better name than that) went from today to the 28th century, with a Kardashev II (not Kardashian) scale power at their disposal.
Backers of the Patreon when it launches will have access to the main rules document that opens with this as part of the introduction, and will receive regular additions to the narrative. One day maybe I’ll get to live the dream of pouring my soul into a stream of consciousness (Thanks for that one JB!) in a novel format, but expect many short stories, character narratives, and GLORKLOX SPEAKING updates in the months to come.
