like the Honor series but this series is based on American Civil War, so which is better Space Navy or Space Army?


The Colonies which are 15 to 20 all together are based on Terrans but they are based on Europe noble nations while Earth is based on Americian futurism rule like in Babyalon 5 TV series.


Edward Robert Lee of Tidewater planet and Colony is the main character, The Lee's are Gentlemen Farmers Squire of Goodland. Goodland is very large farming town were the Lee Brewery is located making the famous Lee Porter Beer 8.5% strong favored among the Yeomen of Tidewater.


The Lee's are famous for Three things, naming the Town Goodland, there Brewery that make one of the strongest Beers around and there being the first who setled the area building there farm. Each generation of Lee's expanded the farm untill it's current size.

Not a big fan of Firefly, my colonies are Terrans left Earth during the desposia.


Tidewater was the First Colony and is English the royal house of Stuart rules this colony, (writer note like in the Honor series the House of Wenton was created during colonization).

Stuart is common last name, also Tidewater Bluebloods are costly lot to maintain and equip, the Lee's does have the cash and land to proper Tidewater intitled noble but chose not too, in there mind it's too costly and trouble a Squire among the Tidewater nobles in consider a jumped up Yeoman,

The other area I need help with space ships and armed forces,

L, considering your style (as admitted by yourself in a different thread) is to start a project and then abandon it, I really, really doubt you're going to get much help any more.

You've cried wolf one time too many, boyo.

If you want help, resurrect one of your previous stories and prove that you can do something other than a "Brave Sir Robin" when things start getting complicated.

So given this attitude of yours, why exactly should anyone of the narratively inclined people here help you develop an idea that you're going to abandon anyway?



I think I'm gonna drop that quote into every future thread like this.

One of the problem I'm having is that naming the Kingdom that has Tidewater as there capital planet but a Peachtree is there Kingdom's symbol.


Between the Terran Colonies and the Royal Terran Colonies are a section of buffer Colonies,

Each Royal like kingdom have more the one Planet in each section,

this setting is a space opera/space western

That's one problem. A very small, very trivial one, given that the bigger problem is that you still haven't explained to us why you expect us to help you with it.

What exactly are you hoping for? What are your goals for those settings? What do you want to use them for?

Help with constructing the setting or at least figuring out the Space Ships and Armed Forces,



Edward Robert Lee is the main character of the series, but like Honor I would like have spin off series as well. Lee was trained not only in Tidewater swordfighting but Confederacy of Rajput fighting rings and L shaped knives as well.

Tidewater Capital is Victoria were royal Stuart court is and Tidewater nobles have there grand Manors,

Planet Shennandoah is were Kingdom which has limited factories and massive plantations that are own by the Tidewater nobles,work is done by criminals bondspeople the crimes up to Murders are punished by Bondwork. Being send to Shennandoah is a death sentence criminals are worked to death normaly.

L, it seems that currently voting is in favor of you continuing your Kavi story.
Perhaps you should wait for more votes to be cast before continuing...
