Thank you for your interest in our regional roleplay!

Selene is first and foremost a roleplay region and so we take pride in the amazing worlds that we have created for our roleplay. Whether you are interested in joining us or are a visitor wanting to learn more about us, here you will find the basics about how to get involved in our roleplay, where you can roleplay, when and where all the action takes place and what our world maps look like.

What is the setting of the regional roleplay?

It's the year 2132. Humanity has finally developed the technology to regularly send manned missions to other planets from Vesta, its homeworld, but time and distance are still challenges. For many decades we have known that there was another inhabited planet, but only half a century ago did humanity manage to establish first contact. With two planets now having space travel capabilities and plenty of other planets to explore, how will humanity venture into the future?

How does the Selenid System look like?

The Selenid System has 10 planets, including 3 that are capable of fostering intelligent life:

  • Sorana: one of three habitable planets, Sorana is mostly covered by oceans and is known as the homeworld of the Lyseans and the Caedri, two of the system's sapient species.

  • Janus: a tidally-locked world, Janus has one side permanently facing the star and the other side permanently facing away from it. While it is not fully habitable, there are some temporary settlements in the strip of twilight between the dayside and the nightside.

  • Vesta: the third habitable planet, Vesta has more landmasses than its sister planet and is known as the homeworld of the Humans, the system's third sapient species and the focus of many events in the system.

For more information on the Selenid System, including the countries that comprise Vesta, take a look at the following dispatch:

Welcome to the Selenid System!

The Selenid System is the only planetary system known to have intelligent life. It is composed of 10 planets, an asteroid belt and numerous natural satellites and space stations, all of which orbit a G-type main sequence star. While much of the inner system has been explored, the outer system and beyond remain little explored and have only been observed through unmanned probes and, since a few years ago, by a few manned missions.

What planets are there in the Selenid System?

There are ten planets in the Selenid System, only three of which are habitable:

  • Planet 1: a rocky, barren world, Planet 1 is the smallest planet in the system, but its cratered surface and reddish apeparance make it an attractive destination for exploration.

  • Planet 2: permanently covered in thick clouds, Planet 2 has a highly hostile surface, affected by a severe greenhouse effect that makes direct exploration, even by unmanned probes, a risky endeavour.

  • Sorana: one of three habitable planets, Sorana is mostly covered by oceans and is known as the homeworld of the Lyseans and the Caedri, two of the system's sapient species.

  • Janus: a tidally-locked world, Janus has one side permanently facing the star and the other side permanently facing away from it. While it is not fully habitable, there are some temporary settlements in the strip of twilight between the dayside and the nightside.

  • Vesta: the third habitable planet, Vesta has more landmasses than its sister planet and is known as the homeworld of the Humans, the system's third sapient species and the focus of many events in the system.

  • Planet 6: the largest planet in the system, Planet 6 is a gas giant known for its colourful bands in its outer atmosphere and prominent storm systems.

  • Planet 7: a mid-sized gas giant, Planet 7 has a reddish colour due to its high temperatures.

  • Planet 8: the second largest planet in the system, Planet 8 has a blue colour due to its high levels of methane and is also known, much like its larger counterpart, for its storm systems.

  • Planet 9: the smallest of the outer giants, Planet 9 has a high concentrations of ammonia, methane and other icy gases in its atmosphere.

  • Planet 10: the second smallest planet, Planet 10 is a rocky world perpetually covered in ice, making it a particularly reflective body despite its distance from the star, as well as one of the most intriguing destinations in the system.

What is Vesta?

Vesta is the fifth planet and the homeworld of Humans, a species known for their ingenuity and eagerness to explore the unknown. Humans have always struggled to secure peace and prosperity, experiencing three world wars between 1893 and 2023. Following the end of World War III (2017-2023), the existing system of world powers collapsed and the remaining countries established the World Society, an organisation dedicated to keeping peace and fostering international cooperation.

Infused with a newfound purpose, humanity looked to the starts and began its spacefaring journey:

  • 2043: Home One, the first truly global space station, is officially inaugurated.

  • 2057: a Sartorian-led international crew lands on Apollo, Vesta's only natural satellite, marking the beginning of Apollo's permanent human presence.

  • 2070: the first astronauts land on Janus, following a series of probes and sample return missions.

  • 2081: the Aurora IV lands on Sorana, carrying a team of scientists and diplomats to establish first contact with the Lyseans and Caedri.

  • 2105: the first astronauts flyby Planet 6, marking the first time that humans venture into the Outer Selenid System.

How many countries are there in Vesta?

There are 54 countries in Vesta, listed in the spoilered table below. If your country is not yet listed, make sure to complete the Global Information Survey, so that the table can be updated and your country is allowed to participate in international affairs.

How do we roleplay in Selene?

There are two venues where we conduct our roleplay:

  • Gameside: our gameside roleplaying takes place on the Regional Message Board, where we constantly post updates about our nations and engage with other nations. We also publish dispatches to provide more information about our nations.

  • Forum: we have a Linkforum where those looking for longer and more detailed posts can also interact with each other.

How does one join the regional roleplay?

In order to participate you need to fill out the Global Information Survey, a simple registration form that lets you select a plot on the world map and outline the main features of your nation:

  • The gameside version of the Survey is located here.

  • The forum version of the Survey is located Linkhere. You will need to Linkregister on the forum before participating there.

Can someone be removed from the map?

Yes. You may be removed from the map in the following cases:

  • If you have failed to roleplay regularly during the past month.

  • If you no longer have a nation in the region.

  • If you are expelled from the region or from the regional roleplay for grave or repeated violations of the rules of common decorum within Corpus Juris, the regional basic law.

If you are removed for either of the first two reasons, you may still reapply and generally expect to be readmitted. If you are expelled for rules violations, ask Justinian Kalominos before reapplying.
