That's an awesome story right there!Here is the story of my empire.
The story of the Durian Empire begins in deep space in universe 40. The Durians were a clan of space pirates and gypsies sailing about deep spaces attacking, raiding and stealing whenever they could. One day a pilot-captain named Jorel asked the question—why sail around space taking what little you could when there were such large amounts of resources to be had in more settled regions of space. The questions were met with much criticism and he was shunned by many of the leaders of the clan, but some people saw what he meant and began wondering the same thing. Finally after nearly a year of strife the clan managed to slip into two parts with minimal blood shed, but instead of the resources of the whole or even half of the clan, Jorel was given only one colony ship. Refusing to despair over the lack of real resources, Jorel took his people and settled a planet which he named Duria in memory of the clan which they had come from. Over time they build a fleet and began attacking other people. The Durians have not always experienced prosperity and ease, but Jorel is determined to lead his people into an age of universal dominance.
Hope you enjoy.
P.S. I'm a part time writer and I have several stories I'm working on. If anyone would like to see them just tell me and I'll try to get them to you.
I'd like to see your other work as well, could you mail me something on firstname.lastname@example.org? That would be great! Also, I'm working on a MMO game, nothing big or serious, with crappy 2D graphics, but the point is that I don't really have a story for it. The dev blog is in my sig, so if you have the time check it out
