    Dwarf3d got a reaction from Ben Fargo in [NovaWrimo2017] A Day of Optimism   
    I figured I might as well try my hand at writing something interesting.
     
    I've been wanting to see some more fiction on the gaps and vagueness in the lore, so I decided to write some myself to maybe inspire others to do the same. This story is my attempt at what may have happened to contribute to the era of peace that began around the year 2400, specifically in regards to the Nihilist movement. I didn't put much detail into organizational structure of the Nihilists or the UEF so that this story could fit in without providing any inconsistencies that may come from future stories. Change on this scale is never a one person deal so if you like the story consider expanding on it from different people's perspectives. If you don't like it, give me feedback and/or write a better one! (Seriously, I like reading these stories so give me more)
     
    That's my spiel, thanks for checking it out.

    Short stories are not my strong suit, but here is my story for Novawrimo. In an attempt to contribute to Dual Universe role the story proposes an in universe reason for the design of arkships (as seen in visuals I could find by the end of 2017),  while facing some philosophical-/moral questions. 
     
    I'm not native English speaker, but have written quite a bit in English and try to get better at it. Constructive criticism of the language is welcomed as well as of the story.

    edit: unfortunately the forum apparently requires me to have also word doc. attached here to include it in message as required by contests rules and the forum decided to count both files together towards the 500kb limit, even when I tried to have them in separate posts. For this reason I had to remove lot of formating/ separate font I used to highlight some things and make the text more readable, essentially all but raw text, in order to fit both files within the limit.

    Glad you thought so! I'm a fan of the Nihilists as a terrorist group and hope to explore it a bit more in future story attempts. Is there any existing stories focusing on them? I'd like to see how others would describe them.

    Fiverr is a site where you can request freelance work for as little as five dollars. You might find someone willing to make a nice logo for fairly cheap there. (That said if someone from the community gets the chance to do it instead that is always a bonus)

    Dwarf3d got a reaction from GunDeva in Where would your Ideal base be? Poll   
    I think it's less an issue of surprise and more about what type of defenses are needed. Underground attacks take a lot of time to set up so you wouldn't have to build defenses against those types of attacks from the beginning. Meanwhile, attacking the "bottom" of a space station is just as easy as attacking the "top" and so you have to have defenses covering a larger range of angles. In general it just takes less to defend a ground structure than a floating structure.
     
    That being said I think space stations will be completely viable in this game because people will be willing to put in the extra effort to defend them properly. And inevitably, both planet bases and space stations will sometimes fall if enough people want it to.
