The Cyclus project is an extensive sci-fi worldbuilding endeavor, currently in the first draft stage. The story of Cyclus spans eight novels, an interactive fiction RPG, and a universe database (wiki) covering 10’000 years of galactic history in the Cyclus universe.
Current State – Full RewriteAs of January 2021 the entire Cyclus storyline is being re-written from the ground up to get rid of the short stories and integrate what were previously supporting elements into a better and more coherent plot. The current set of 8 novel-length stories is to be the planned total, with further work going into improving text quality. The project, which was started in 2018, will take several more years to refine to a satisfactory degree.
Storytelling & WorldbuildingThe purpose of Cylcus is primarily to create an extensive space opera, published as a series of nine novels and short stories, which are made freely available via this site. Secondarily, the project endeavors to examine the process of creating and managing a complex world, though the exact details of this aspect are yet to be determined.
