The Orion's Arm Universe Project Forums





Front Page: changes to wording
#1
As part of our ongoing project to renew and review the site, we’re looking at a revision of our front page. Our graphic artists are working on the visual side of the presentation, but I’m also reviewing the words. One aspect of that is what we promise. Presently the text runs like this:

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Welcome to Orion's Arm, a scenario set thousands of years in the future where civilization spans the stars. Godlike ascended intelligences rule vast interstellar empires, and lesser factions seek to carve out their own dominions through intrigue and conquest. Out beyond the edge of civilized space and the human-friendly worlds, adventure awaits those prepared to risk all.

Come join us in this ever-expanding collective worldbuilding effort. Within the vast universe that is Orion's Arm you will find:
  • hard science
  • plausible technologies
  • realistic cultural development
  • a vast setting
  • 10,000+ years of historical development
  • realistic exobiology
----------------------------------------------------------------------

For comparison, this was our equivalent page a few years back:

Based on this discussion:

I propose to replace the points about 'hard' science fiction and 'plausible' technology with a single line that says ‘radical hard science fiction’, and has a link to a separate page that explains what is meant by it. I'll propose wording for that in a separate thread. More generally though, what are some thoughts on a revision of the rest?
