Below is a list and short description of some of the stories within the setting of Shattered Universe.

Come join our group to right your wrongs and help others to do the same. Learn the Black Codex, and transcend your weaknesses.

  • Lost Hope Station: Not open yet keep a eye out here for future developments! (Brought to you by Yoshi Co)

  • Port Endeavour A deep space outpost located in neutral space, jointly operated by the Interstellar Alliance and Constitutional Dominion of Ersetu, Port Endeavour is the the first in a new experimental joint venture between the two star nations to jointly operate a series of outposts along the trade routs between the Alliance and the Dominion to function as ports of call, safe havens, trade ports and diplomatic contact points and promote the betterment of relations between the humans, kishargal and their neighbors.

  • Redfall: the successor to the The Song of Whitemeadow plot with several tie-ins. Redfall happens approximately twenty years after the conclusion of Whitemeadow. Redfall follows the crew of the titular ship, the KPS Redfall, a civilian merchant vessel involved with the Wings of Heled, a shipping, postal, and occasional salvage company operating out of Kowloon. It's captain is a dongwu and a former engineer who relieved the last commanding officer for falsifying reports about the medical state of several crew who died aboard the Redfall during routine operations. Most of the crew was cycled out and the Redfall was restaffed and overhauled to meet more modern standards, and then set out on its first voyage after being refitted for militia service by the Duchess's Wyverns. As the crew progress about their boring, regular jobs, however, they find that some of the falsehoods the former captain reported to cover his ass weren't quite so false after all. Eh, it's a job. Sign here.
  • The Regulars: In the vast future and storybook of a universe, you're on firewatch. The Interstellar Alliance Marines 1st Division has been deployed to the Serenity system to put down an insurgency on a rising human colony just lightyears coreward of Planet Eden. The brass have reminded you that hearts and minds are to be put above all, but what if the planet's insurgency doesn't think the same. The lines of war are blurred for the regulars, this isn't a hero's story. (Coming Soon, Contact HAM for more info.)
