    Hi all from So. Cal. Like others, I found my way here through the artwork. I’ve been in writing forums before. My contributions will likely be sporadic.  I tend to have bursts and lulls.  As for background, I’ve finished NaNoWriMo 3 out of 5 times.  I’ve written 1930’s adventure fiction, Sci-Fi, and Fantasy, (all in 1st  draft & never pushed for publishing).  I’m an avid PnP RPG GM, I run a game every Monday.  I also play Video Games & worked for a few game companies back when CD’s were a big thing.

    Hey Chris!

    Glad to have you! I’m rather looking forward to reading more of your story, I’ll leave more commentary on it when I have more availability.

    Hi all. I’m Mark. Found your site via Deviant Art as well.

    I am really looking forward to getting some creative juices flowing. I am heavily into PnP RPGs and 4x Space strategy games. I’ve always wanted a sandbox to collaborate with others and love what you have accomplished so far.

    I am an 8 year vet of the US military (Army grunt). So I think I will cut my teeth on nation/military building and eventually work on a corporation or 3 as I go, as I grow more confident.

    Just happy to be here.

    Hi Mark,  I love PnP, I’ve got 40 years of playing. Yep, I got & still  have the old Blue DnD book with the B1 module & I started playing Traveller when it first came out.  Damn I’m old. LOL

    Hello there! My name is Simon and, much like most of you, I was lured here by the amazing art some of you have been putting on DeviantArt. However, I am also in love with the wikia aspect of this project once I found it. I have been dabbing in creative writing for a decade and I love to write and create within the confinements of an “existing” frame. In all honesty, I have been writing some on my own stuff using CoM as a base for a while now, but I figured I would try and join in on the forum once in a while and see how it is. Cheers!

    Yo, I’m James. I found this website by browsing Sci Fi uniforms and ships. Very proud of my Irish heritage and am going to do Army ROTC this Fall.

    To be honest I am kinda self conscious about creating a nation but might as well give it a shot. Have an idea for a Celtic (the Celts from the Brit Isles) nation. Don’t know how I’ll make it work but by God I’ll try darn it! Just want to better my creativity skills. Sadly I ain’t artistic so can’t make any drawings for my nation.

    It’ll be a please reading about all of your nations. I’m looking forward to how this universe will turn out. I’m a no life when it comes to reading this stuff. Can’t say how many weeks I wasted studying SW Legends, lol.

    Hey James!

    Sorry for the delay, but welcome to the site! Feel free to check out our Discord Server (you can find the link by clicking the Discord logo in the “about” section at the bottom of this page.  

    Congrats on joining your ROTC program. As a Navy guy (with a army family) I applaud your service, and wish you the very best. 

    What is great about CoM and its community is that we are very supportive. Feel free to bounce your ideas off other members, get feedback on nation concepts, and ask questions of the core team (Pharthan, Ryly, etc.) or even of me, the creator. 

    Also, no worries about artistic elements. Those can come with time and with some help from other community members! 

    I look forward to seeing what you bring to the verse, and welcome!

    Thank you for your service, Josheua (cool way to spell it). I come from a family of Army, Navy, and Law Enforcement. Joining ROTC so far is the proudest thing I have done.

    Hello all, I’m Thomas, though I do prefer to go by my username: Nycarae. Apparently, against the trend, I did not find this through Deviantart, but instead when looking for more sci-fi ideas. I’m a sci-fi writer by hobby and am very excited to find something like CoM.

    Hi Nycarae!

    Glad to have you, we’ve been short on authors, so I’m actually pretty excited to have you on board!

    Not that I’m not excited about the rest of you… >.>

    Hello, the name’s Andrew! I’m not new to role-playing, but I’m not a veteran either. I usually go by my given name or by the given name of my character, whose name is the first part of my username. I’m decently familiar with the details and mechanics of space combat such as: gravities, light-seconds/minutes/hours and such like that, however I’m no expert. All-in-all I look forward to being able to role-play with y’all.
