Existence with a Capital “E”
Existence with the capital “E” is the greater universe of the Tales of the Stars. The Tales of the Stars Universe, or TOS Verse encompasses all the series that take place in Existence. This includes the current titles The Tales of the Stars, The Captains, and Universal Deliveries. We fully expect to continue expanding the series that take place within this universe.
Background of the Universe
Long ago Existence was faced with a catastrophe known only as the Uncreation. No one knows what caused this event, but it led to the destruction of many worlds, and thus many civilizations. It seemed the Uncreation could not be stopped. At this time Immortals allied themselves with Mortals, using all their magic and might in an attempt to resist the Uncreation.
Nothing was able to resist its advance. During this time there were five golden worlds on which the Immortals dwelled. Two of them were lost to the Uncreation, and countless worlds of Mortals faded into the darkness. When all seemed lost, a blazing light like nothing Existence had known burst forth amidst the darkness of the Uncreation.
The Stars had come to be, and all was saved! There was a time of bliss, and the Immortals lived side by side with the gods they had craved. And the time with the Stars was sweet. The remaining Immortals, in time, learned to live with the loss of the Uncreation. They grew close to the Stars and learned from them of Forever, the place beyond Existence.
However, all things must come to balance. The power of the Stars being unnatural to Existence began to have unnatural effects on Existence. And being fully existent took its toll on the Stars. Finding themselves cut off from the other Stars that held their place as keepers of the way between, the Stars in Existence departed from the Immortals they had grown to love. Only to return as the Cosmic Dragons. Setting the stage for the arrival of Tol’Asha and the ultimate battle for Existence.

The Voice that Speaks it So
The Voice is a mysterious power in the Tales of the Stars universe. Rarely encountered, though often invoked, the Voice’s motives are unknown, but its actions have Existence-wide impacts. It has the power to literally speak it so.
The Uncreation is an event that predates the Tales of the Stars series. No one knows why it happened… The first domino to fall in a series of events that will change Existence forever.
The Stars are powerful beings, keepers of the path between Existence and what lies beyond. They bond their power to Tol’Asha and name her their champion in the battle against the Cosmic Dragons.
During the Uncreation some Stars crossed over into Existence to aid the sentient beings of the universe. In doing so they abandoned their duty, an act that would have unforeseen consequences.
Immortals are unique beings. They exhibit a wide range of powers and appearances. Immortals are not warriors necessarily. Many of their powers are mystical as opposed to militant. Once the inhabitants of the golden worlds, now they are scattered across Existence.
The Space Way
The Space Way is simply the part of Existence where the mortal races have managed to travel. The Space Way is ever-expanding as the mortals do, and is currently ruled by the Salisatyr Empire.
The Space Way Pirates
The Space Way Pirates are the first of the mortal races that Tol’Asha encounters. Wanderers of the Space Way, these beings stick to a code, however risky some of their adventures. Currently led by Captain Bala Assata they seek a homeland of their own and an end to their wanderlust.
The Salsatyr Empire
The Salsatyr are a race of clones that rule over the Space Way. Originally, they were cloned to be slaves for an advance humanoid race. After overthrowing their masters, they led a war against the other races of the Space Way. This led ultimately to the Treaty of Conquest, and the establishment of the Salsatyr Empire which has reigned over the Space Way for around 300 years.
