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. Here, you can play as a human on the Watchtower space station, the last haven for Earth's descendants, or pick one of the many alien races in our Compendium to play. You can even make your own alien species to populate the nebula!

Due to a bizarre gravitational anomaly, boulders and mountains float above the surface of Planet 1138. There are also "holes" in the planet's surface that are said to be interdimensional hoops that lead to one of many alternate universes if one should fall through them.

A peaceful planet, rich in resources and habitable environments, that is home to the Sarutari, animal-like creatures who are physical representations of souls, emotions, strengths, and weaknesses.
Paradise is an anomaly in the nebula, an insectoid wrapped around a "Silver Moon" that traverses space. The alien being is just a visible portion of a lifeform that acts as an archive of realities and worlds.
