I like everything except for the decay.
Rotten causes, riddled by meaningless banter. Decadence leads a frothing path through and beyond the accepted the fresh,also, have you ever smelled a daisy? Decay? Hope is lost when good men fail, and fail they must when the rectitude the profit mongers tires of adding upon the ledger. For where will the "good" find cash? And even decay has it's favors. And I believe it is the fifth flavor, decay. Without a goal, you lose the game. You know I think you lie, and tell not the truth, you cannot possibly like everything. Have you in fact enjoyed piloting a Firefly?
I think the finances of transport will play an important part of this universe if that is what is wanted. To capture a jumpship would be a stupendous thing, to lose one horrendous! yet will it be contiguous, transportation and battle retaliation?Time desired, as time be? Will there be a "Spaceward Ho" element, hopefully a "Tradewar's" element??? Knowledge may be a key, but it may also be a Molotov cocktail, depends on the incentives given, or taken.
If it will take 2 weeks to get to a mission's objective in subjective time log, but only a couple of minutes of real time game, the stratagy of leaving your home world, or whatever, becomes problematic, if your troops are over extended, not mended, just befriended, come here little buddy, what is left of your world can swear allegiance to me, or be destroyed, oh, and pick up that soap. You come home, wow, our unit is shooting at us,hmmmm, this does not seem right, what the heck over?
But how could the almost turnbase time bind with the real time, or should I say twine to equivalent outcomes?
This is how, the travel time back, makes null the time traveled there. the difficult part would be the balance of all the other timelines, but since the time is a realtime 3049 and month and follow in succession in 24 hour cycles, perhaps it is in no way realistic. But time is not going to be real either, a unit will drop, scout, destroy, in an hour, where if it were not make believe, it would take much much longer, see.
I know I am rambling, but I think you need to pull the stops sometimes and see what you get. Thanks uncle danno, eruto
