Alliance-Union Universe

The Alliance-Union universe[] is a fictional universe created by science fiction and fantasy author C. J. Cherryh. It is the setting for a future history series extending from the 21st century out into the far future.

All factions are custom tailored for fun and personal use, are non-profit and do use several icons and graphics found free on the internet. They may vary a bit from readers picture of them, as I had to adopt them to fit into the game. The factions are not packed together in same time-line, but readers might know.

The methan-breathing factions will get reworked as soon those gas planets are availible to choose InGame. Currently they are using synthetic setup as placeholder. As tribute to author's creation I'd recommand to use those factions in one team, interact only with T'ca while avoiding communications with chaotic Knnn or crazy Chi.

Just in case you like to breath the atmoshpere of the novels, you may team up:

- Regul (Lord) + Mri (Mercenarys)
- Iduve (Master) + Amaut (Servant) + Kallia (Servant)
- T'ca (Voice) + Knnn (Silent) + Chi (Silent)

while human factions (Earth Company / Cyteen Union / Merchanter's Alliance) do heavily compete with each other about ressources and trade routes.

Have Fun!

Welcome! Still hoping to see some methane planets InGame without need to load mod so I could change ove those Knn, Chi and T'Ca. Also no clue how to bring minors in without mod...Dusei are allready in my pocket waiting to attach some Mri.

BTW, anyone good if I'd alter Earth Company a to get Mazianni in?
Still wondering if C.J.C. may bring some more stories...

Just saw this and want to thank you greatly... C.J. is my favorite sci-fi author and I have given Cyteen as a gift more times than I can count. I am stil l hoping that someday the Alliance - Union - Merchanter universe makes one hell of a TV series. Thank you!

Of course it is. Not only she tells a story, it is more about getting part of it. Never seen that much detailed societys so a whole alien species gets imaginable. Well, Brin's Uplift Universe is getting near, but isn't focusing on one person view like Cherryh.

Right? Cyteen is still among the greatest and most nuanced novels I have ever read, alongside the likes of Vinge's Fire Upon the Deep and of course Dune.

Haha! Yes, Ms. Cherryh did know how to raise readers' imagination! Again, nice work, Kepos. Tx.
Kepos  [author] Dec 15, 2015 @ 11:33am 
Yeah, thx, have fun enjoying them. Well, as written, I had to adopt pictures a bit as I found them fitting my imagination and surely every reader may have gotten different pictures in mind. In my personal view, Mahendo'Sat are way more ...ah... shifty then any other aspect. Feel free to copy and adopt them the way you think will fit best. Just give some credit if you put them into workshop as well. Probably I'll add some more factions like Dusei or Maziani once I manage to include them as minor civs into workshop. See, Cherryh's storys have that many loose a positive way for the reader, to open them many different conceivable outcomes. Best way to raise reader's imagination...

It's awesome to see that there are still C.J. Cheryh fans besides me! I can't want to try these. By the way, you don't have a portrait of the MhendoSat that's more simian... more ape like do you? It's been a long while but I but I think that's how they were described in "Pride". Oh, and how about adding a Manziani civ? Late on the Alliance-Union timeline (ala Downbelow Station) after they were cut off from Earlth Company. (I know, picky picky, right?)

Again, these look great and I'm looking forward to giving them each a play. Thanks!

Welcome :KOh:

Thanks for this :blacklotus:

Thx, well unfortunately the Foreigner isn't offering too much factions. Probably I'll add them to my loose collection of alien species. Some still open here (Dusei for Mri), but I guess they better fit a minor faction mod later.
