Mind Warp

Submitter: DClick
Description: Perhaps a century or two in the future, mankind has the technology to roam the stars. They've found habitable planets and strange creatures. Yep, that's your typical sci-fi start, ne? Anyway, not all is smooth sailing, however. On the planet Kedei 5, the people have discovered psychic powers. The strange Mindwarpers, a being native to the planet, have allowed certain people who they think have promising mental abilities into their mass-mind. These people, for lack of a better term, are known as the Mindwarped. However, this lead to a great conflict between the Mindwarped and the Kedeian government. The war is over now; Kedeian society is putting itself back together, and the remaining Mindwarped are in hiding. Sounds like a good setting for an adventure! (Hmm... That'd be fun for *me* to write a story around. But I'm saving it so you all can be inspired... you can use this as a base to a story, but at least change the names XD)

Looks pretty cool!! Like the sci-fi bit. I can never get this engine to create any sci-fi I like...

or perhaps I just don't like any of the sci-fi the engine creates...
