Star Era is set in the universe 500 years later when commercial aerotechnics have been very mature and the United Nations have passed the Act on Exploring the Universe and started the Space Era.
Canave the first planet colonized by human beings were infected by “X substances”. All creatures on the planet died within 7 days. Meanwhile, X substances were also infecting the other planets colonized by human beings as well as the Earth.
All creatures, machines, inorganic substances, organic substances and anything else on the Earth were all infected by the X substances. All the creatures became fearsome and brutal, and genetic mutation had a much bigger chance to happen to them.
In order to survive, the human beings alive bombed a small planet, dividing it into 8 parts. Then they built 8 huge spacecrafts based on the 8 parts, and began to roam about in the air.
This game occurs to Aglaea the No. 2 of the 8 spacecrafts.
Aglaea created human beings of a new kind by right of cloning technology and genetic optimization. In the 44th year of the Starsea Era, Aglaea founded the Starsea College. The new human beings received special education in the college. Through the education, some of them are able to make use of stardust and wield the modified X substances. But some capable men had mastered the abilities earlier than them, and some of these men taught the students in the Starsea College.
The game starts in the 60th year of the Starsea Era. A group of children most of whom are nearly 13 years old are gathering in the Starsea College. Some of them are hot-blooded. Some have been infected by X substances but have not yet lost their human nature. Some are the descendants of the noble on the Earth, some are human beings of a new kind created based on the gene of extraterrestrial beings and human beings from the Earth, some are the descendants of the rulers of Aglaea, whilst some are low-class persons who were born in the dungeons. The human beings must deal with class conflicts and the potential danger of the infected inside. What’s worse, the dark force controlled by X substances outside are trying to eliminate the human beings? How should the human beings deal with the situation?
Since 2020 AD, commercial aircrafts have been widely made use of.
Since 2049 AD, the controllable nuclear fusion technology has become mature, and then human beings have
begun to produce highly efficient space engines.
2084 AD, because of the population and resource stress, the United Nations passed the Act on Exploring the
Universe, starting the Space Era.
Since the 75th year of the Space Era, human beings have begun to colonize and reconstruct planet Canave.
Since the 160th year of the Space Era, human beings have begun to colonize Plano.
In the 300th year of the Space Era, human beings were in total colonizing 11 planets.
In the 319th year of the Space Era, human beings were infected by X substances on a planet they tried to colonize.
In the 335h year of the Space Era, the X substances were taken to Canave by the infected spacecraft, and all creatures on
Canave died within 7 days. Human beings were shocked, but worse news is that X substances were spreading in the universe.
In the 338h year of the Space Era, Mills the first spacecraft on Plano were finished.
In the 339h year of the Space Era, scientists from Plano the X substances that caused the extinction of Canave can improve the gene of human beings after modified.
Since the 350th year of the Space Era, Plano had finished 8 huge spacecrafts and moved all people and resources to them, and begun to roam about to avoid damage from X substances, starting the Starsea Era.
In the 13th year of the Starsea Era, Aglaea received the last message from other planet saying those who had not boarded spacecrafts had all been infected by X substances.
In the 24th year of the Starsea Era, Aglaea reached a desolate planet named Macdo. Macdo was not a suitable colony planet, but on it Aglaea found some secrets about X substances and the way to make use of stardust to resist X substances. They also found out a new target planet. Soon, Aglaea had begun to move towards the target planet Omega.
In the 31st year of the Starsea Era, Aglaea encountered a spacecraft from another planet. The spacecraft had been infected by X substances. Fortunately, Aglaea destroyed it in time but lost a lot of resources and people.
In the 32st year of the Starsea Era, Aglaea decided to create human beings of a new generation by right of cloning technology and genetic optimization.
In the 44th year of the Starsea Era, Aglaea founded the Starsea College. The new human beings received special education in the college. Through the education, some of them are able to make use of stardust and wield the modified X substances. But some capable men had mastered the abilities earlier than them, and some of these men taught the students in the Starsea College.
The game starts in the 60th year of the Starsea Era.
Aglaea’s technologies mainly include the followings.
Space Navigation Technology: Navigates in the air with the highest speed which is close to sub-velocity of light.
Spacecraft Resource Recycling: Aglaea is able to recycle energy resources.
Mobile Armor Technology: Creates mobile armor driven by super engines, which can fly at the highest speed that is close to sub-velocity of light for a short period of time.
Cloning Technology: Cloning technology had been mature since the Space Era but has not yet been widely used because of the defect of humankind’s genes. About 40% of the people of Aglaea who are 30 or older were created by the cloning technology.
Genetic Optimization: Optimizes genes to improve fitness and possibly learn some special abilities.
Genetic Remaking: Remakes genes to change the appearance and intelligence of creatures.
Armor Fusing: Fuses armor, attaching new attributes.
New humankind will be sent to study in the 3 colleges according to the potential shown by their genes.
Some students are able to wield stardust because their genes are modulated by X substances. They are able to congeal stardust inside their body and send stardust to some parts of their body such as fist to harden it. They are also able to use stardust to enhance the metal stuff they are touching such as weapon and armor. When enhanced by stardust, the weapon will be even sharp enough to slice X substances.
New students are only able to cover a small area about 100 square centimeters by stardust. As they make progress through study, they will be able to cover a bigger area by stardust. To enhance a sword, they need to cover about 1000 square centimeters by stardust.
The students of the Dragonale College need to wear the certain uniform. They also equip their key parts with metal armor because they are able to use stardust to enhance the internal parts of their body and the metal stuff they are touching only.
The parts covered by stardust will gradually be crystallized. It is good to weapons and armor, but it is bad news to fitness since it will harm fitness chronically.
The students of the Skyrage College are unable to wield stardust. The X genes inside their body are extremely active and even nearly out of their control. They are able to make use of the X substances inside their body to modify armor, and their control the armor just by their thought.
There are only a few new human beings that have X substances into their body. So there are also so unhuman students in the college. Such students are created by genetic technologies. Some of them were created by X substances plus the genes of some ancient creatures, whilst some were created by X substances plus the genes of some extraterrestrial beings found in the Starsea Ruins. Such creatures may get berserk sometimes suddenly.
Some students of the Godef College have a special internal organ because of a special gene. They are unable to wield stardust directly, but are able to use the organ to wield the dark substances wherever and then control some real substances such as water, metal and so on.
The combat spells of the college are quite similar to ancient magic spells. For example, they are able to transform water into icy pillars. The media that is most often made used of them is water, air, iron, steel and electricity. Very few of them wield fire because they are inside a huge spacecraft.
Stardust can be congealed further to become stargems, but stargems can hardly be used to attack directly. Usually stargems serve as energy resources, or the ammo of stardust cannon. Some students of the Dragonale College are able to wield stardust. They are able to cover internal parts of their body and the metal stuff they can touch by stardust. When covered by stardust, the weapon is even sharp enough to slice X substances.
However, once such students consume all of the stardust inside their body, they cannot make use of stardust to inflict damage. In contrast, some students of the Godef College are able to make use of their special internal organ to directly wield dark substances wherever as well as common substances.
Aglaea is one of the 8 huge spacecrafts created based on the parts of a small planet. Aglaea is 60 kilometers long and 25 kilometers wide. About 2 million people are residing on Aglaea.
When looking down at Aglaea, it looks like a shovel head. From a lateral side, it looks like a bullet. From a rear side, it looks like an American football. There were 6 swept wings for collecting resources on its two sides, but they have changed into external laboratories since Aglaea began to make use of stardust as energy resources in the 24th year after Aglaea were created. These laboratories were separated from the main body of Aglaea, so they were suitable for people to make dangerous research. In the 31st year after Aglaea were created, the main body of Aglaea was damaged in battle. Then the materials of two swept wings were unloaded to repair the main body. About one second of Aglaea’s lower part is covered with natural rocks. The booster at the rear part of Aglaea has fallen into disuse. At the bottom, Aglaea now has a new booster that makes use of stardust to work. The upper part of Aglaea is covered with metal. There are some very small portholes. While Aglaea is moving fast, all of its safety covers must be closed.
Aglaea is mainly made from the natural rocks gained from the shards of Charites, a satellite around planet Eurynome. The outermost shell of Aglaea’s upper part is hundreds of meters thick. Aglaea only has two primary guns which are equipped in the military area of its nose and stern. Aglaea mainly makes use of mobile armor to defend itself.
Aglaea can be divided into 4 main parts, namely upper part, middle part, lower part and gravity part.
Aglaea’s lowest part is covered with natural rocks. Next to it is the manufacturing district and blackmarket of the lowest part. Next to these is the smelting area. Then it is the agricultural, research, experimental and industrial area. From here, people can take a lift to directly reach the gravity part, middle part and upper part.
The middle part is the core city that contains commercial district, residences and hospitals. Most residents of Aglaea are residing on this part.
On the upper part, there is a clear lake, providing water to the whole spacecraft. Some small rivers from the lake flow into gardens, colleges, or become waterfalls. A park has been created centering around the lake. The Dragon Tree in the park is very close to the lake.
The Starsea College is covers a part close to the park in the upper part and also a part of the core city in the middle part.
The Glass Town beside the Starsea College is mainly in charge of providing and purifying air to the spacecraft. The left and right sides of the upper part is military area. At the nose of the spacecraft there is a bridge. Below the military area at the stern is the gravity system that has fallen into disuse.
The gravity part is the vital part of Aglaea.
Below are some important parts of Aglaea.
Bridge: It is the control area of Aglaea. The captain of Aglaea is residing here.
Hangar: There are 4 hangars and 4 repair centers accordingly. Aglaea has 4 mobile armor troops, each of which has about 500 pilots and 1,000 reserve pilots.
Gene Institute: The place to study genes and X substances.
Photosynthetic Base: About 10,000 people work here to produce crops.
Energy Conversion Center: It mainly converts the energy of stargems gained in the Starsea Ruins into the motive power of Aglaea.
Starsea College: The training base of young people.
Breeding Institute: The place to create new human beings by cloning technology and genetic optimization technology.
Jail: It is the place for imprisoning the creatures infected by X substances. The students of the Starsea College also take hard training of battle here.
