Moved all my systems and holdings over to NS-verse. Each year in OOC time is one century so its now 400 years after we moved from the FB-verse. I even roleplayed my departure as US0A, which was one of the first to be hit with the login bug, and I got Peter to copy my post on the FB forums in the twilight days of it. Shortly after the native US0A to this Universe was encountered (my second nation) , and the old US0A shortly collapsed in war and famine before reforming into the Republic of Greater Caprica. Inheriting colonies on Laptev and other places, but no longer has any real presence in the Sol system since the native US0A from this verse what would've been their holdings.
I never really addressed the collapse. I've never really decided whether Estruia was a Valyrian colony or not. I made this nation several years before FBN shut down, so I guess it would make sense for it to be a colony.
well here's my take on it, though it's really written to get Ingen to where I want it to be to fit in with a new FT group
Most of us seems to share a few common denominators in our transition from FBN to NS. A significant amount of time has passed for most of our nations, at least in relation to real time, some more then others. I've noticed a lot of us, including myself, have put our nations into decline or recovering from a decline. Perhaps in an attempt to correct some of the ridiculousness of out military strengths in FBN? One of the more surprising aspects of the transition is how some of you see this as a different universe, alternate reality, ...etc.
Yeah, for me the 'old' Ingen is dead anyway - it relied entirely upon its IC allies and was fun because of the OOC closeness of the Laptev Axis. Now, I am literally the only founding member of the Axis present on NS - Ystovia, Katasia, Imaginarium, and then San Alejandro, Jamesistan, North Regnium and the UPEO are all gone, and to continue to RP the same nation the same way would be a little tragic.
I imagine things are similar for a lot of other players here - much of what made FBN good for them is gone, and the handful of 'survivors' here are from a range of backgrounds and factions, not one of which made the transition unscathed, so I'd guess most people are reworking their nations using the passage of time in order to 'start fresh' whilst simultaneously keeping in touch with their FB/MS roots
As I stated above, it's been about ~400 years for us but that is a more or less a joint timescale thing. As far as how that translates to current Earth years or something that would allow for a greater frame of reference... I have no idea. I will say that similar to what was done with Laptev, Nalydya ended up moving the bulk of her claims from FB-1 to NS-1 just prior to the collapse of that realm.
I (well, most of us in the UMS - a good chunk of the MSers and some other folks as well) have come to enjoy the greater level of freedom afforded us here on NS. Consequently, most of us have somewhat larger claims but smaller military sizes. That isn't to say our fleets our tiny, but back on FBN the bulk of the VRZ reached around ~370k capital-grade vessels (while fielding around 3 million strictly combat types total) while here on NS it hovers around 53k (with less than 80k strict combat types total); I came to enjoy some of the larger vessel sizes and fleet numbers so I'll never truly part with them - at least not with my main nation: that's what alts are for.
As far as alternate realities/universes, etc, are concerned: I generally regard each forums as its own universe. So to be "trans-universal" would mean to literally be RPing out the same nation on/at various places around the web. Hence why I've basically just said the Pords left FB-1... Because I find it somewhat absurd trying to justify claiming the nation continues to exist in a realm where I cannot physically post about them existing. It'd be different if we'd simply just made up FB-1, but we didn't. It actually existed.
Overall though I'd actually venture to say that Nalydya is seeing a "golden age" of sorts. NS is terribly peaceful, and for the most part, we've only been interacting with friends and allies from FB-1 whilst slowly expanding in the Barbarossa I Galaxy. If anyone is interested, I will link my weebly: http://empireofnalydya.weebly.com/
We view simply that the Doom overtook the outside iterations. AdF of FB1 was a colony of Meili, Green Cricket, and White Raven of NS1. Each of those countries were fleeing some un-named enemy. All were a bit more serious an hostile than AdF. NS at the time had a policy of no alts...so anyways AdF survived the purge of NS1 as we fled our foes. (I forgot about NS1 but still had a facebook account so would occasionally login to that.) AdF seeded colonies throughout other verses but all of them died after a time. Now the only extant survivor after a decade or so RL is this one.
Always figured Verachter was up to something. That bastard.
Well, if we're STILL discussing backstories since the collapse...
A pity the UPEO is gone, as they were the main ones who addressed the way the First Broes were destroyed. I know that some people seemed to think that the nation of 'Orzland' that I changed my main's name to was supposed to be legit in some way, when it was actually the *name* of an Alien Empire that was systematically eating Brotherhood survivors and feasting on our corpses.
I suppose you could consider Bro history immediately after that point to be comedic in a "Why So Melodramatic?" way as the Bro survivors were running for their lives from mysterious and implacable aliens intent on eating us and anyone else that happened to be in range. I tried to reference the terror and fear my people have towards the Orz when I finally encountered a nation that RPs as the Orz: The Community Hiveminds of Orzic Nedbens. Really fun and creative guy, you should try TGing him for worldbuilding ideas if you have the chance.
Since then we regrouped in the NS 'verse and, well, y'all can guess the rest.
