The nexus suddenly birthed from nothing. It was just a weak spot in space, created randomly by clashing stresses of gravity. But when it formed, it instantly became an exit point – a extra focus – for every wormhole in the entire galactic octant; the same wormholes used for interstellar travel by every starfaring species. Soon, a human starship found the nexus, by the simple process of noticing the alternate exit point while traversing one of those wormholes. The commercial and navigational value of the nexus was obvious, and a core module was built in preparation for creating a full-blown starbase.

Led by those same wormholes, other starships soon showed up. Then more. Now alien civilizations wanted access to the nexus. Rather than see bloodshed, the humans, ensconced in place, offered to let all share the nexus peacefully. The humans would build the starbase modules, ensuring compatibility, but the aliens would purchase and own the modules themselves. In effect, the aliens became outside investors – potentially controlling investors!

You are the alien CEO of one of these galactic corporations, and your masters have given you seed money. What will you purchase? A solar power monopoly? Luxury habitats? Will you outperform your competition, and prove your dominance?

Startropolis is a modular 3-D space station game for 2-4 people. Each turn, players buy modules and connect them to the existing space station. This creates revenue, and allows them to purchase more modules. The player with the most credits at game end wins.

Not really my soft of thing so I've not being paying attention to this

That is fair. Especially if you watched some gameplay or the run through. Not every game is for everyone.

I think that if I got this for my nephews (myself), they (I) would just build stuff and not worry about the game side.

That looks like it might be most of the fun...I might be doing it.

      this is my new Kickstarter Project (already funded but moving to new stretch goals)
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/aenorminiatures/ogres-and-orcs
       
      the ogres are properly sized monsters at 60mm, cast in resin
      the orcs are 32-33mm, not of the muscular kind but vicious Tolkien inspired ones and are available in both resin and metal
       
      I hope you like them!
       
      the first ogre has 2 heads to chose from


       
      the 3rd one (current SG) is still a WIP

Ancient demons and foul creatures dwell in the shadows of The Forsaken Lands...lands of ruin, mystery, and decay! Make a pledge to begin your adventure and choose your own path!
      3D printed and painted model depicted above. This piece was printed with a Creality CR-10 and Creality Ender 3. Miniature not included, used to demonstrate overall scale of model. Not affiliated in any way with any companies who produced the 28 mm miniature knight used to show scale in the photographs. The Forsaken Lands terrain collection is designed for 28 mm tabletop wargames and role-playing games. Each pledge is delivered as an STL file pack, designed to be printed on your home 3D printer.
      Each model is to designed to capture your imagination and evoke feelings of mystery, through an ancient lived in world, full of ruin, decay and beautiful imperfection!

Begin your long journey in the forsaken caverns where flickers of shadow swell up from the backdrop of ancient rocks and darkened pools amid the torchlight. Enter the land of the spiders as you traverse these narrow paths and hollows with untold numbers of eight-legged, bloodsuckers on the prowl. It would seem that a moment of respite can be found here, as you stumble upon the ruins of an ancient temple. But it is not the holy place it once was. Decayed and covered in thick overgrowth, mystery awaits you as you journey forth. Legend holds that a beautiful and powerful witch once dwelt in this great tower. After a tragic loss, her madness grew in a storm of grief. Some say she still lingers here, immortal, feasting on the flesh of all those who wander into the ancient mountain pass. Creatures of darkness plague this mountain village; there will be no sanctuary for you here. Those who still dwell here may prove even more dangerous than the night hordes responsible for the hundreds of dead buried nearby. An old villager takes you as far as they dare before sending you forth onto what the locals call, The Path of Despair. Here you find the ancient ruins of the city of Irkalla as ghostly moans rise up from the Gate of Souls...
