I've taken the bits of fluff I could find, and themed my stuff around babylon due to the ties with astrology.
Here I've tried to add further details, and flesh it out a little point. Mostly point form stuff.
I hope to have something typed up to bring on Friday for the Tale of 2HD Gamers.
Just not sure which way I should go for their home worlds' sun dying. A or B - what do you think?
