Much of the character flavor and differentiation in HSD revolves around which of the many CorporNations your character grew up in, or was educated by. Each of these massive organizations have different philosophies, cultures, technologies and mentalities. When you build your HSD character you can select up to two of these forces to be a part of your background, which helps shape your personality and the skillset you have to call on. To give you a little taste of some of the flavor of the HSD universe we’re going to post the lineart from the development of the fleets for these megacorps, and snag some of the descriptions right from the book.

Just a reminder folks, the success of this project once it goes live for purchase hinges on people knowing it exists! If you like what you’re seeing, hit that re-blog button and help get the word out!

TTI Transcendent Technologies Inc.

“We have such wonders to show you.”

Roughly 500 years after the birth of the first Vector, Luna colony fell to a hitherto unknown species from Earth after an expedition to the planet returned carrying an unseen threat in their blood. A second ship arrived on Mars, and the resulting massacre resulted in the deaths of hundreds. A pittance, compared to the 30,000 souls that would be lost on Earth’s moon. The Whispers had arrived.

Modern science lists the organism known colloquially as “the Whisper” as an ‘anomaly’, which most take to mean “its probably some kind of goddamned ALIEN but we don’t want to just come out and say it like that” and shortly after its appearance various divisions of all the affected corporations began research as best they could into their nature and origins. Most came up alarmingly short, there was certainly nothing in the genetic record that remotely resembled them. One division, however, stood up above the rest. It was an old name in science R&D that once hit the news in a big way during the Venus terraforming years when they founded the colony on Europa, but had been somewhat quiet since. They were Transcendent Technologies Incorporated, and they had captured one of the creatures alive. To this day, no one has ever received a straight answer to the question of how.

Two hundred years later, TTI is the authority on the Whisper race and has produced more strange, bizarre and outright frightening technology than any other megacorp in Sol. Advances that came from the study of gene manipulation and the unique properties of Whisperwerk, the name applied to bizarre constructs like the Earth-moon tether that seem to be crafted of what Whispers us for flesh, have allowed TTI to grow living structures thought impossible by earlier science teams. Suits of bone and muscle armor with perfect motion, skin with the bullet absorbing properties of kevlar, even living spacecraft that can perceive threats without being told to, and heal their own injuries.

The mission statement that guided TTI in the early years was that in order to fight this strange, new and entirely unknown threat, they needed to have an understanding of technology and biology that transcended the current rules. They marched to the motto of ignorance, stating adamantly that the Vector race, for all its advancements, knew nothing of technology. They had simply been polishing the rough-cut that humanity left them centuries earlier, and that there was a whole new reality out there you could only see if you accepted that everything you already knew was nothing of significance. Few were willing to truly embrace that route, and they were perhaps the most shocked when TTI released the first demonstration of the devices that share their namesake: Transcendent technology.

Though still very much in its infancy, Transcendent technology has already redefined the rules of reality. Much of its function remains a well guarded secret, but the premiss is that certain things in the universe gain resonance and power due to their very construction. The arrangement of their molecules interact with the waves of radio in the air, and other unseen forces. Crystals, for instance. By arranging these reactive constructions in patterns that also react to each other, complex harmonies can be made. Like a series of reeds all being blown over by a single wind, a sophisticated symphony emerges that is more then the sum of its parts. The beauty of it is that these structures work on the scale of the universe: from atomic to galactic. Their size is irrelevant, they simply…work. No powersource, no special attachment, no port, no plug, no emitter or receiver. They are, and so, they function.

When Earth began its dramatic transformation less than a century ago, TTI campaigned insistently for a new large scale expedition to it, arguing that such a development was far too significant to leave alone. After being repeatedly stopped by the collective efforts of MarsCo and several others, they’ve grown quiet in recent years and retreated to their research labs on Europa. TTI hasn’t been in the news for a longer period than most corps of their size, and in light of their field of research, that has a lot of people more than a little worried.

Enemies: Progenitus


-These guys created the Whisper threat. The 'alien’ thing is a misdirection front, they set the whole thing up, planted them on earth, and now they’re watching to see how we all deal with their little pets.

-Transcendent technology is the future, hands down. TTI deals with creepy stuff and they have a creepy reputation because of it, but just you wait. We keep going like we’re going and another thousand years from now we still wont have lightspeed and we’ll still be giving each other black eyes for silly arguments. Follow them, and they’ll make us GODS.

-TTI can get past the Earth quarantine any time it wants to. And it has. And it does. That’s why they’re being quiet; they don’t need permission. They’re in their own little world doing God knows what, and they certainly know more than they let on.

-Living ships contain genetic keys for everything from hyperspace to viral planet-killers to psychic communication. They don’t need to be upgraded, they just need the right hormone injection. But TTI isn’t keeping it a secret because they want to, they’re keeping it a secret because they HAVE to. Every ship taken past a certain level has gone insane. Or maybe not. Maybe they just became whatever they hell they were based off of to begin with.

Key products and services: Living ships, Hardskin, Transcendent technology, anti-whisper technology, Living armor and biodrones.

Corporate culture: TTI has the most localized and restrained population in Sol, operating almost exclusively off of Europa. It has buildings and facilities on Mars and Venus, but they are few and far between. Europa itself, however, has been almost completely TTI owned and operated since they founded its colony in their pre-megacorp days. TTI employees tend to vary in attitude depending on if they’re Europa-born or not. Natives to the ice world are notoriously superstitious, often of celestial bodies. Europa natives wont go outside on nights when Jupiter is in full view in the sky, and some are almost pathologically afraid of looking directly at it. There is a common deep-set terror of the larger forces in the universe most contend do not exist, and Europa natives will bind together in that shared understanding. Off-world TTI employees are typically a bit less fearful and a bit more sympathetic, as though genuinely sorry you cant see what they see. They are rarely described as arrogant, however. Their attitude is less “you would be better off if you knew this” and more “I would be better off if I didn’t”.

Naming Conventions: TTI has possession of nearly the entire habitable area of Europa, but was a MarsCo offshoot to begin with. While human standards can be heard in most of their names, they tend to stem from different parts of globe and include variations on Inuit, Russian, and Icelandic. TTI employees are usually referred to by their titles in addition to their names. If their job is a unique one, they individualize their titles to reflect it. The title comes after the name, in the format “Anna, Bone Architect”.


Above are pics of the various vehicles from the tv series Young Justice.  From the top are the Bioship, and the Super-cycle that condenses into Sphere/New Genisphere.  Both have some AI capabilities.  The design of the Bioship focuses on organic, curved designs with distinct red and black decoration.  The Sphere/Cycle goes through a transformation, but focuses on angular patterns in yellow and blue with a basis in red, black, and grey.  Needless to say, I want them in my garage.

Hello! This is my first follow forever and I have added with some of my favourite blogs, unfortunately I couldn’t add some people because their names weren’t working but every blog I follow is amazing. 300 followers may not be a lot but to me, it’s seems like a million followers and I still get confused how people can follow my trashy blog. Anyways, thank you once again for following me !!
