Forum Rules/Guide (How to Contribute)
The essential philosophy behind the Orion's Arm Universe Project ("OAUP") is that one person alone, no matter how talented, cannot come up with as diverse a scenario as many contributors can together. Through synergistic creative effort by many, we have built a vast universe of the imagination that no one person alone could have dreamt. To this end we are always willing to accept new material from those interested in helping to build the collaborative universe that is Orion's Arm. Here is a step-by-step explanation of how to best contribute content to the setting, what to expect, and a list of frequently asked questions ("FAQs").
