Culture Profile: Principality of Nomoki
Astrography
The Principality of Nomoki ("Nomoki") is a small interstellar empire located on the fringes of Xeno Alley. There are approximately forty thousand star systems under direct Nomoki control.
Natural Physical Appearance
Nomoki is almost exclusively populated by the nomoki, a human subspecies that was created as a result of the heavy transatomic bombardment of Nomoki Prime. The average nomoki is shorter than a baseline human by about a foot, and has pallid skin which burns easily in Terran-standard sunlight. Nomoki heads are larger in proportion to their body than baseline humans, they have smaller noses, and their eyes are about twice the size of a baseline human's. All nomoki have black hair and eyes, although dyeing hair is common in Nomoki culture.
Appearance Traditions
Nomoki tend to wear environment suits when outside of habitats purpose-built for them. The Nomoki consider it dishonorable to be seen in their natural state when encountering outsiders, s

Culture and Society
The average denizen of 2100 is poorer than his counterpart in 2000, at least in the West. Living standards for state societies are approximately within the range of 2010 Latin America; the worst is equivalent to Haiti and the best is equivalent to Chile. The average is equivalent to Papua New Guinea. Economically, the entire 21st Century was an L-shaped depression. Economic inequality is also similar to current day Latin America. In terms of economic malaise and breakdown, the closest analogy is Central Asia in the years after the fall of the Soviet Union. At worst, it can be like Grande Hotel Beira. Some cities like Nouakchott are mostly just ruins.
One of the universal cultural trends is that austerity is a virtue, and waste is a vice. This isn’t because the West told everyone it was so (and saying so looks like “I think blackface is funny” to us), but because resource depletion is universal. The “Crisis of the 21st century,” t

The Lindy Effect
In 1984, mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot popularized a now-famous principle known as the Lindy Effect. He posited that the longer a non-perishable phenomenon (e.g. a technology, institution or idea) has survived, the longer we can expect it to last. Inversely, recent innovations may be sudden trends that will fizzle out. Simple example: Shakespeare’s classics are still in circulation after 400 years so they have clearly done something right and are more likely to be remembered in another 400 years than last year’s best-seller, which has not had time to prove itself and may be forgotten just as quickly as it arose. For every year that something lasts, we can add another year to its life expectancy. The beauty of this principle is that it allows us to gauge probability of survival without needing to know the unknowable complexities of time and what truly causes things to catch on or fail.
Can we apply this to future history? I’m sure we ha

You may have noticed a dearth in updates for my ongoing projects, and while being busy in real life has had a lot to do with that, I've also made the decision to branch out. Alternate history and science fiction comprise the vast majority of my work, and while it obviously gave me great pleasure creating content in those genres for years, it's time for me to move on. There's only so far you can move in one direction before you start boring yourself. With that in mind, I am discontinuing my current projects. My schedule, and my creative energy, simply cannot keep up with the work that I know you, my fans, deserve. 

With the bad stuff out of the way, I'm glad to announce my newest project, a collaboration with 3892. It's called "Cold Bitches" and it is prototypical of the genre I want to now work in: high school teen dramas. This is new territory for me; admittedly, I have never been much a fan of high school teen dramas. But art, and life, is about challenging ourselves. I want to explore the most difficult genre for me to tackle, so I chose the high school teen drama genre. I have researched this genre meticulously over the past few weeks. I have watched films such as "Mean Girls" and television shows such as "High School Musical" over and over again, to get a feel for the kind of stories I will be telling from now on. This "shock therapy" has been taxing on my mind, but I think you, the fans, deserve the best in high school teen drama. 

Cold Bitches is the story of two competing cliques, the Cheerleaders and the Nerds, for dominance in the high-stakes social environment of International High, an all-girls private school. The Cheerleaders, led by Amy and her best friends, Britney and Francine, are the most popular girls in International High, and they are used to ruling the social scene. However, events from a semester ago has toppled their standing, as the Nerds, led by Sophia, has rallied all of the girls who felt left out of International High's social life. The two groups have turned everything into a competition, threatening to suck in every girl at International High. 

I have ambitious plans for Cold Bitches. I have already drafted several storylines, which I believe capture the best of the gripping conflicts that teenage girls face in high school. From Amy's relentless but ultimately fruitless campaign to be friends with the new girl, Vicky Chuong, to the insane conflicts that arise when Isabelle and Pamela are given the same locker by the administration, I think everyone will come to enjoy Cold Bitches as much as they did works like Ad Astra Per Aspera and Space Cadet. 

You can check out Cold Bitches in this dedicated gallery. I've posted the first five pages of what I expect will be a long-lasting series. Enjoy!

VME had a space force six years before it was cool fav.me/d5jcu6p
Since there seems to be more interest in Cold Bitches than expected (that is, more than none), are people interested in a continuation even if all the subsequent pages are in black and white?
In case people are confused, Cold Bitches is a joke. There won’t be any more updates to it, unless for some ungodly reason everyone here prefers teen chick dramas to alternate history and science fiction.
I’m doing a cover of Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri prior to the launch of the Unity. Unfortunately, the source material is sparse on detail, so I’m asking for suggestions from the crowd.
I set up a Discord channel for discussing Space Cadet.

I got an idea to adapt Avatar:The Legend of Aang into a Command and Conquer game.Here are my ideas.

(The title of the Legend of Aang/Command and Conquer game idea would be Command and Conquer:Firebender Alert.)

(The technology base and resource mechanics of Command and Conquer:Firebender Alert are similar to Command and Conquer Generals through the base building mechanics are similar to the Tiberium and Red Alert series in that a Mobile Construction Vehicle deploys into a Construction Yard which in turn builds the base structures.The Engineer mechanic for capturing and repairing buildings is also present as well)

Air Nomads:The Air Nomads play in a similar way to Generals' USA faction in that they have a strong airforce with a highly mobile and versatile ground force that can dish out lots of damage though they are more lightly armored than their counterparts and can't take much of a beating with their more advanced units using railguns and sonic weaponry.Their superweapon is the Weather Control Device which summons a massive wind vortex to suck in and cause catastrophic damage to buildings and units.

Water Tribe:The Water Tribe are a faction that places an emphasis on defense.Their base defenses are the best in their roles but also heavily specialised in their roles,which means that a Water Tribe commander must mix his defensive structures to ensure that his base is properly defended.Water Tribe units are also highly specialised in their roles such as their Mastadon MBTs which are only suited for an anti-structure and armor role and not much else.They also have the strongest navy in the game as well.Just like Red Alert 3's Allies,they use cryotechnology as a weapon such as their Blizzard Tower advanced base defenses,their Cryo Troopers and their Snowstorms,a tank chassis that has a cryo-beam projector as it's main weapon system.Their superweapon is the Cryoshot Relay,which relays a orbiting satellite to fire a powerful cryo beam into the target area that deals massive damage and temporary freezes any survivors.

Earth Kingdom:If you like massive armies of tanks rolling into your enemies' base,then the Earth Kingdom is a faction suitable for you.A faction that steamrolls enemies with armies of tanks with infantry and aircraft supporting their advance,their gameplay is similar to that of the Soviets in the Red Alert series in that they have cheap and durable units with an emphasis on tanks.More advanced units use seismic technology that creates a small earthquake on impact that disables enemy structures in the area of effect.Their superweapon is the Seismic Artillery Platform which fires a very large shell that creates a earthquake that heavily damages structures although units take reduced damage from the shell.

Fire Nation:The Fire Nation plays in a similar way to GDI in that their units are capable of taking on and dishing out lots of punishment in a head on fight.However,this comes with a hefty price tag as Fire Nation units tend to be more expensive than their counterparts.More advanced Fire Nation units use electricity based weapons such as their Lightning Warriors which serves as advanced anti tank infantry although they also have quite a few flamethrower/firebender units.Their superweapon is the Dragon's Nest,a missile silo that houses,arms and launches a cruise missile filled with a incendiary warhead that is capable of razing entire bases and units to the ground.

The names of the basic infantry for the factions in Command and Conquer:Firebender Alert would be Airborne Infantry for the Air Nomads,G.I for the Water Tribe,Conscript for the Earth Kingdom and Fire Warrior for the Fire Nation.

I am not sure how far you have gotten on the realist world at this point but I was thinking that the point of divergence can be Watergate being successful resulting in the Nixon-Kissinger realist policies looking like shining examples to their successors due to their ability to keep part of Indochina and not be damaged domestically. In other words, what would the world look like today if the '60s idealists (both the Reaganites and Yuppies) lost.

I was thinking that future presidents could include Republican realists like George H. W. Bush and Colin Powell while the Democrats remain fractured between the old establishment and the activist types. No Carter era push for liberalizations among US allies mean that regimes like Somoza's Nicaragua, Pahlavi Dynasty Iran, Rhodesia, and of course South Vietnam last longer.

The Soviet Union's fate under a realist world should its eventual governance by a less idealistic leader than Gorbachev (i.e. one that knows to delay political liberalization until significantly after economic liberalization to avoid rapid disillusionment) -- a Deng Xiaoping type in other words.

I was thinking about making a setting for a story about the sudden re-emergence of Vampires after the Battle of Bulge. The Vampires risen from their long slumber along with their armies after waging wars against five ancient civilizations as part of a deal by The Lord of Debauchery to gain power over the Realms. Thereby granting divine like power to the Noblis and Hierarchic Vampires to compete with the Old Gods of Man. Slaughtering a plethora of creatures we would call gods. 

After a while the Vampires would be torn apart in a shadowy civil war after their leader Nosferatu was killed by Odisar: One Eyed God of the Realm of Winter by putting a third of his soul into the making of his legendary blade: the Tears of Warriors. With Nosferatu's death, Dracula or Vlad Teples becomes a Vampire eons later and launches a war against all life after defeating the Ottoman Empire through the unknown aid of dark eldritch forces.

Several Hirearchic Vampires devised a ritual that would sacrifice themselves to create a being that would supplant the once mighty Nosferatu. In January 1477: Count Dracula would no longer be a man, but an immortal Hirearchic Vampire who bends the very fabric of the cosmos to his will. Cosms upon Cosms would be sacked and annihilated by his newfound armies. Wallachia or now Translyvania would be turned into a secret staging point for the Vampire's eternal campaign to exterminate those that defy, and make the others into cattle. 



Fast forward to the Battle of Bulge in 1944. Nazi Occultist try to summon a supposed Ymir in which they did. Only for the beasts to massacre every single Nazi in the base. Ymir had long since been a mindless beasts before the Realm of Winter Gods were slain by the Vampire Legions. In turn all of Germany within a matter of days had most of their Human populace slain or enslaved by the Vampires. The Nazi state that the world had been fighting for the past five years would be reduced to ruin and ash.

A sort of an idea I had. What if the American Civil War was transplanted into the issues and conflicts of modern day Europe? So a unified European Army is made, the Eastern Europe countries refuse to sign up onto it and elect Eurosceptic governments, which leads to an Eastxit and the formation of the Intermarium Confederacy of Europe. To parallel the West Virginia situation, you could have Die Linke and AfD win in Germany and join the Intermarium, only for the more liberal West Germany to secede and stay in the EU.

You could have the US and Russia in the positions of UK and France, respectively.
