Welcome

Welcome to the Maelstrom nebula

Maelstorm is an original sci fi roleplay forum set in the 27th century in a nebula that is light years away from a dying Earth. The Watchtower space station, the last haven for Earth's descendants, has recently been rocked by a bloody rebellion. As rebels begin to colonize planets in the name of the Terrans, the rest of the nebula's many alien species look on, some with curiosity and some with suspicion.

New to Maelstrom and don’t know where to start? Read the Site Rules first, then check out the Application Rules. In no time, you be jumping into hyperspace with us!
