Once upon a time, humankind thought it was on the doorstep of the stars. Then, the thermal-industrial age came to a brutal collapse as the ravages of the anthropocene took hold. For five hundred years the world ignored what lay beyond the atmosphere. For three hundred years reigned the Low Age. And then we turned to the stars again.

Starmoth is a post-apocalyptic, post-capitalistic, interstellar setting where semi-realistic spacecraft coexist with unknowable alien ruins, paracausal creatures, open-source FTL devices and colourful, vibrant societies. It is meant to be a tribute to science fiction focusing on a sense of wonder, as well as evoking nostalgia for a time that could have been.

If this is your first time on this site, you may want to start with the article about human space which displays the current geographical extent of the setting and provides a good starting point.
