Welcome to the PD/FSA universe.

The PD/FSA universe is a fictional futuristic space-marines universe. By creating it from whole cloth, we can be freed from precedents in other universes (e.g., Aliens or Starship Troopers). Unsurprisingly, many elements from those universes appear in the PD/FSA universe, but the presence of one element does not imply the existence of anything else from that universe.

In general, the PD/FSA universe is human-only. No alien contact has been made. Combat occurs mostly between shocktroopers: while there is some naval combat, space is big, and so it's easy to avoid combat (and avoid detection).

Many people have asked where I (dcltdw) got the idea for the universe. Mostly, it's a melange of things, although the core seed was Insurrection by David Weber.

GMs are welcome to write in the PD/FSA universe, but we need to coordinate in order to keep consistency. Please send mail to pd-fsa-gms and we'd be happy to help. After all, we'd like to play in this universe, too.
