Depending on how much you've familiarized yourself so far, there's some good introductory material here . Depending on what you're interested in, I'd recommend checking out some articles on the major types of sophonts (there's a helpful one on nearbaseline modifications, which gives a good idea of what the average nearbaseline is like, found here ) as well as maybe checking out articles on the major sephirotic empires and their ideologies. My main method for familiarizing myself with the project was actually reading through the timeline and checking out just about every link on the timeline, though that's a very time-consuming endeavor. Still, the timeline does have overviews for each section, which could be useful. If there's anything particular you'd like to check out, I'd be happy to give suggestions of articles to read.

I have two main projects currently. The humongous one is that I'm writing an outline of the evolutionary history of the planet Orwell. The other is that I'm developing the history of the planet Dilmun, which is one of the Metasoft Baseline Reserves (a Metasoft subgroup called the Teleological Tendency founded a bunch of these, including some, like Dilmun, in which the inhabitants were unaware of the outside universe, though this changed after the Second Vec War). I've also started a novel set on Dilmun, though I've so far only shown it to people I know in person. I've also been posting a lot on the thread about the recently discovered quintuple star system. In the future I'd like to do some writing about virtuals (which are a bit underrepresented), and I'd like to look into the history of Tohul (the planet where the xenosophont To'ul'hs are from) and their language. And a novel idea involving the Epp War. ...I'm kind of all over the place.
