A1-0 is a sector of space of the Lampshade Galaxy. A sci-fi setting, this canon mixes elements from various sci-fi brands, such as Star Wars, Star Trek and Halo. The canon was founded in 2017 and has a mix of player-controlled nations and non-player nations that everyone can reference and help worldbuild. Getting started might seem a little daunting, but hopefully this introduction to the A1-0 category on these forums and reading the guide will help you on your journey. For those of us who come from the old forums, it should be noted that threads are called topics here.
