Planet Creation Rules
Chaos Galaxy Map | Map Update Thread
Planet Creation Resources If Needed
  • Planets, due to their potential inclusion on the Chaos Map, are the only Codex Category that require a two-level approval by Codex Staff. Edits requested in this section are not suggestions, and refusal to make the required changes will result in the submission being denied.
  • Approved Custom Planets do not have to be put on the map as this is an optional feature. They may simply be used in RP from the moment they are approved by Codex Staff.
  • Players may add planets to previously existing systems, ie. any planet/system already on the map.
  • Extra-galactic/Companion Galaxy Planets cannot be submitted to the Codex.
  • Don't use specific Earth references as shorthand instead of explaining something. Ex. 'Japanese culture,' 'Medieval Europe', etc.
  • Planet submissions cannot contradict canon history (i.e. before the Chaos timeline), and should reflect Chaos History if applicable.
  • Adding Planets to the Map:
    • 1.) Custom Planets may only be submitted to the Map Update thread after they have been fully approved.
    • 2.) Custom Planets can only be added to the Chaos Map by the original author.
    • 3.) Custom Planets cannot be added in the empty space outside the visual rings of the Chaos Map. Nothing in the background.
    • 4.) Once a Custom Planet has been added to the Chaos Map it cannot change location, be archived, or removed from the map.
    • 5.) Custom Planets can be placed anywhere on the map, however, we strongly encourage submitters to choose less populated areas to fill in. If a hex or area is considered too crowded, the Admin that handles the addition will request/suggest an alternate location. A Submission Modificationfor the planet should be completed to reflect that change.
      • Note: If an alternate location cannot be agreed upon the request may be denied.
