1. The Big Picture:
Humanity leaves behind a dying Earth to find sanctuary among the stars and reestablish and recreate their civilization.

2. The Bookends
  • LIGHT: Previously unheralded cooperation leads to successful establishment of new civilization on various outposts.
  • DARK:  Internecine rivalries, power struggles, and conflict lead to excessive resource consumption and warfare that caused the exodus in the first place.


3. Palette

YES:
  1. Magic. Not as something that is extant at first or deeply explored, but some type of naturally occurring phenomenon.



NO:
  1. Instantaneous FTL. Travel outside of the cluster must be difficult. Limited FTL is ok, accompanied by cryo.
