So, this is for Sci-Fi planning. There is a horror, fantasy, and wild west planning thing, so we needed a sci-fi one. The idea's I have seen are from @Dr. Dapper where he said we have a planet, can't remember the name, and on the planet it is cyberpunk, and of the planet, in the space around it, it is space opera. I have a few questions that we should specify; how large is our are? Like, is it glaciate, universal, or just in the one system. I think it should just be the ne system, for simplicity's sake, but I will not argue this point. Another is, DI we have magic, and if so, what ind? Is it just minor, or do we have the force level? Do we make it form scratch, or do we include Starwars, Halo, WH40K, and or Destiny? Also, how much do we break the laws of physics in this? Does it stay strictly to Sci-Fi, or do we add in some Sci-Fa* as well? Anything else?

*This means Science Fantasy for the uniformed.

I think one solar system should be plenty.

Oh, I also forgot another question, are their multiple habitable planetoids in this system, or is our planet the only one?

I think they're all habitable, or at least most of them.

Er... nothing else lives nearby, but we've colonized it, maybe?

Or, we could have another species that we share the system with, that we have... uneasy relations with. The plot could be that there is a group that wants war, and everyone has to pick a side. Like, TUBA is the humans, DA is the other species, and GB is the group that wants war, and Keepers(didn't forget them this time Ark) are the ones that don't want it.

Huh. There's an equation to be found here...

I'd be, in that case, a war party, alien species, peace group. :P

Wow ok, long discussion.

The idea I had originally was for there to be a jovian (large gas planet for those unaware) with several large moons around it. On those moons, we would have diffrent environments. (Cyberpunk, untamed wilds full of odd species, metal rich and airless asteroids, etc.) And in between the moons,  we could have some space opera stuff. 

That was the original idea I had.

Well, we could have several planets, and one could be a coruscant like planet, and then we could have space operas in the empty space. I think space opera shouldn't eb an in between thing, and be one of the main settings, but that's just me.

The cool thing with moons, though, is how it would cut down on travel time, or lower the level of handwaving we need to do.

Why would we need to handwave when we could use starwars style cross galactic hyperdrives, in system?

That's what I mean by handwaving.

This way we van have a bit harder sci-fi, without sacrificing the space opera piece.

Instead of taaking weeks or months, traveling from moon to moon would take at most a day.

Sorry, I can't really work on this right now. Be back soon!

Edit: Yes, their will be. Aliens are an intrical part of Sci-Fi.

Yes. Huh, what do you know. Soon was faster than I thought.

Dwig, maybe not Starwars speed, but it would still be fairly fast. Like, light speed.

Are you opposed to the moons idea?

No, different planets, but our ships can go light speed.

What? 

So yes, or no, on the moons thing

I don't know. Maybe. I'm not the executive judge just running around forcing things on people like PC limits, or setting changes. I just started the thread, and am talking about the Sci-fi setting.

I'm aasking if you personally are opposed to the idea of using moons as our primary terrestrial settings.

Cause I really want to do worldbuilding for the planetoids.

I would prefer that they were not our primary setting, but if we had four-five main planets, than one of those had 4 or 5 moons, that would be cool.

I think it would be cool if we had a more localised setting. I think people forget moons are huge! And so are planets and especially all the space between them.

I really like the idea of a single gas giant, and a bunch of habited moons around it (cyberpunk) and then space opera in between the gaps, which would be a primary setting on its own. I really like that idea. Nice and localised, but vast enough you can do stuff.

And of course, different places can explore different parts of sci fi. I’m all for Dapper’s idea. Plus, it would make a cool map.
