Now that it's been out for awhile and there's DLC for me to ignore, I'm following in Dintiradan's footsteps (also thanks for the title dinti ) and doing a thing for CK2, except with Stellaris. (note: this thread will be image heavy, so i'm resizing the images down for your bandwidth convenience. Click the images for the full version)
For those of you unaware, stellaris is exactly like CK2 in all things, except with a bit less politicking, it's in the future, and you get to be bird people. The bird people in question are the Endar, a proud race of nerds doing nerdy things for their species, while also killing any mudmen we come across. The mudmen will know why they fear the night (spoiler: it's because we have these sweet ships with lasers).
Because i'm not a coward (and also because there weren't any cool mods) the game will be in ironman mode for your pleasure. Also, starting all the empires kind of on the same foot because last game i got a more advanced empire mad at me and that was less than fun.
Our story begins with our great cosmic nest: Shantar Prime. Located in a true jewel of a system we have called Shantar. Unfortunately we enlightened Endari were too busy developing wormhole travel and advanced spaceships to explore the other planets in our system. Squawk.
Haatrek, the captain of the most honorable science vessel Vehement Hatchling, plots a course around the Shantar system to see what all the fuss is. Meanwhile, his colleagues landside start working on some valuable research to speed us along on our conquest of the stars!
Our fledgling empires place in the stars:
more to come!
