StarMaster

Hyperiums is a long running online 'social' space war game. It is a nice game and I play with a good group of people in our alliance. But it is strictly a war game. There is no story, no exploration, and no wonder to it. Which is what the real StarMaster brought to the field.

You can play the permanent Hyperiums game for free, or donate for more features.

Your race could almost be anything you could imagine. There were a few restrictions plus advantages and penalties for choosing various characteristics. For example, if you chose claws as your appendages, you might receive a disadvantage in construction. You could choose the number of limbs, mode of movement, scales, skin, etc. You got to choose your gov. type. Some choices effected your ability to research, build, combat, etc.

I'm sure Jman's memory is better than mine and can correct and/or add to this somewhat. Not sure what fired Jman's imagination, but would interested in hearing it. Hopefully my memory isn't too far off the mark.

Know nothing about Schubel & Son. When I joined StarMaster it was run by Allen Pitt and Richard Lloyd under the KSK Concepts banner. Received a letter from Allen Pitt around Jun 1994 advising that they had no real plans to restart StarMaster because of the work involved and the need to automate more of the book keeping functions. He also advised, that him and Richard were playing a World War II PBM game run by Steven Phillips.

The Illian Swarm were the badass vampiric villain race of StarMaster. They were a NPC race, but they may have had a paying player run them for the gamemaster. You can read about them in the player turns for the Eudorian Conflict in the attached files earlier in this thread.

Tried finding my LSI newletters again, but since I have taken them out, they are probably buried under other papers.
