Having been open since 15 years, OtherSpace has long history of unique evolving theme. It is a legend and many roleplaying legends started there.
Its space opera theme and game arc can be compared to Star Wars. 1998-2001 are the Original Trilogy. The best story and heroes are here, it had heart. A swashbuckling space opera with dark undertones.
Firey rogueish heroines such as N-Sha El and Jestliana unfolded the sinister plot of Hive Minders and Kamir aided by anti-heroes like Falkenberg. A story worth remembering.
2002-2006 is the Old Republic, a reboot with promise. Weaker than Original Trilogy, but faithful to original theme. Un-inspired stories about Athena and wars, is made up for by legendary adventures of rebel Jeff Ryan and larger than life Mika.
They carried the plot, the new heroes of a hopeful reboot but once their activity slowed down the reboot began to sink.
2007-2011 is Prequels. This is the worst time for OtherSpace. A bad war story on rails and a lame spinoff called Millenium. Millenium is the screaming Darth Vader of the OtherSpace saga.
No stand out characters and no good theme anywhere. The original story shifts to an alternate universe but like the Prequels its trying too hard, to be something its not.
2012 is looking up. The original universe is back, with original theme. Story is improving and the game too.
Long time problem players kicked out, pbase growing up. Home run hitters Falkenberg and Mika sometimes show up, a shot in the arm for everyone. Brand new heroes like Leucohyle appear.
Its watching remaster of Original Trilogy, not the same as the first time...but almost as good.
If you want to play OtherSpace now is the time. Staff is good, pbase mostly active. No annoying buffer breaker poses. Mostly newbie friendly but vets are more impatient than some other Mus.
This is a good place if you want original theme.Post a comment
