Star Army

Star ArmyⓇ is a landmark of forum roleplaying. Opened in 2002, Star Army is like an internet clubhouse for people who love roleplaying, art, and worldbuilding. Anyone 18 or older may join for free. New members are welcome! Use the "Register" button below.

Note: This is a play-by-post RPG site. If you're looking for the tabletop miniatures wargame "5150: Star Army" instead, see Two Hour Wargames.

  • In 2020 we're going to have our community meetings on the second Friday of the month except when those are holidays (Valentine's Day and Patriot's Day). I've added dates to the 2020 wiki page.

Imperium of Nepleslia


A gritty empire full of industrious, heavily armed men of action. Some struggle to forge peace, while others live war as a way of life. Home to humans and cyborgs.

New Dusk Conclave

The New Dusk Conclave was founded to help the odds of those in service to the government. They succeeded, but it brought them to a realization. Why stop there, when there was a world waiting to be improved. But it was not the world they were founded upon. So the NDC took to space in search a world to call their own, determined to build a better world then they left. The path ahead and time will decide if they can, and what price.

Kingdom of Neshaten

After a terrible Civil War nearly caused the extinction of their race, the Neshaten have spent the past seven hundred years rebuilding what is left of their civilization. With their civilization mostly rebuilt, they've turned their eyes to space, with the hopes of finding allies and to explore its great depths. Known as the 'Fox Nation', the Kingdom is home to three distinct races and all wanting to see what the universe has to offer, it can't be dangerous... can it? It's all fuzzy tails and big smiles, and a lot of terrorists too!

I can't access Discord at work but I can see the forum, so for a quicker reply use the forum or the forum's conversation system.
I am just staring at stuff at the moment, my brain is being bad and I can't think how to write up characters atm.
