Thanks for the invite! :D But I'm afraid most of my worlds don't belong here. :( These worlds are part of the GDF (Galactic Democratic Federation), which is set in our Milky Way galaxy. So unless your worlds make themselves known to the GDF and/or join, then we have a serious issue.
There are also some paradigms which you have set that don't line up with my own paradigms. For example:

Continuum-hopping is a 'new' form of FTL travel that allows what many thought impossible: near-instantaneous travel to any point in the universe. It works by artificially opening a rift into the space-time continuum and crossing the continuum through that rift to your chosen point. (the rift heals itself behind your ship, so no damage to the fabric of the universe;)). This does NOT automatically allow time-travel; in fact, it has proven that time travel is impossible as one cannot exceed or fall below the set timespeed of all things: one second per second.

It is possible that Rana and/or Kano could be added here, but maybe not (seeing as Rana already has a population of six billion people).

Hi WorldBuildersInc, sounds like it would be easiest to either create a new OPaaT-specific world, or, if you don't really have time for this group there is also the option of setting up a star map-based blurb to basically advertise your universe to people who check out OPaaT (FAQ #4 fav.me/d5uaq58 ).

Eh. Maybe you could use Kano, even though it's 'primitive'. :)
I will consider the advert idea though; thanks. :)

Thank you much for the invite! :)
