There is a theory which states that if ever anybody discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.
-- Douglas Adams

In the 2113 earth won a surprise victory over an invading alien force, and new technological developments resulted from the alien science introduced to humankind: advanced A.I. and robotics, faster and more reliable space flight, powerful weapons technologies, and near faultless gene manipulation.

It was once theorized that all mankind would unite upon finding a common alien threat and greater scientific knowledge but this assumption did not prove true…

Now some 3700 years later humanity has taken to the stars in a spectacular wave of interstellar colonization. However little has changed. Corporations, Religions, and Militaristic Governments run the lives of trillions of human beings. Money, sex, and power are still the primary motivators for human achievement. From a strictly human standpoint, life goes on as it always did but with a few new twists…

Racism is rampant as usual but now hate is directed at the other sentient alien races that have made contact with humanity in addition to infighting among the various human ethnic groups.

Many robots have developed true autonomy and self awareness forming several hidden separatist (and in some cases terrorist) colonies.

Wars between nations are still not a thing of the past even though every nation got their own planet to settle. Warfare is now waged with mighty spacecraft and power armored troops for reasons more convoluted and seemingly senseless than ever before. (usually corporate politics are heavily involved)

The virtual universe is almost as important as the tangible as the massive jump gates that connect humanity also connects the Interstellar Information Network called the simply “The Net”. The Net is the home of all popular media outlets and secular communication services as well as the banking systems. There are other denizens as well, dangerous hackers and security programs that can fry a humans mind as well as free floating A.I. (the latest form of the old-fashioned virus) with their own mysterious agendas.

These are but some of the issues and problems faced by those who live in the year 4825. Are you a soldier, a criminal, or a saint? Are you out to change the universe or run it? Can you rise to the challenge and survive to make a name for yourself in this the
Imperfect Future?

This site is dedicated to the developing campaign setting Imperfect Universe for the d20 future game system. Relax..the future cant possibly be that bad...can it?


The charm of history and its enigmatic lesson consist in the fact that, from age to age, nothing changes and yet everything is completely different.
