On this page, you can read various amounts of trivia, from the small things that had changed the game in some way, to ideas that were either changed or ended up unused, and even the references to other media.

Meta and Lore TriviaEdit


  • The players previously used TVTropes as a means of gathering all relevant information on the game, but with time it was decided that it would be best that there was a Wikia, for more in-depth detailing.
  • The player Damian0358, at one point, attempted to do what he called a "novelization" of the game - in an attempt to "bring order" among the various writing styles used, fix grammatical errors, inconsistencies, and overall improve the story, with expansions even being considered (such as the below mentioned arc that had been planned, as well as utilizing the skipped days as a means of character development). The project lasted only about 5 months, and only went up to the end of the Duroma Arc.
  • The Kanad language was created by the player Sega Saturn, who also created the Kanads.
  • On the 11th of November, 2017, from about 7pm to 8pm GMT, Scoundrels' second thread suddenly received a substantial amount of readers, many of whom were guests. For that one hour period, the thread skyrocketed into the Top 10 of Facepunch's Popular Threads, fluctuating between 5th and 6th, first reaching a peak of 43 readers before dipping down to 28 and subsequently receiving a second wind, breaking the previous peak and hitting its max of 50 readers, even managing to reach 4th at least twice or thrice in both fluctuations. It briefly entered 7th by the end of the hour, and suddenly dropping to 11 readers and 18th, where it fluctuated for a bit more before falling off the page. No one currently knows why this happened.
  • The last post of a thread has generally been reserved for incredibly silly posts:
    • In Journey's first thread, the last post consisted of Dwan's kyrios, that is, his player, breaking the fourth wall and yelling that the thread was over
    • For Scoundrels' first thread, as a special incentive, its GM promised that if it involved a CH roll they would multiply the odds by 1000 as a special end-of-thread bonus, and the last post consisted of Chemosh flashing his penis in front of a congregation, rolling for his penis size. Rolling between 5 to 15 inches, it rolled a 13, resulting in his dong size roughly being 33cm.

Journey Across the GalaxyEdit

  • The original game was originally going to be a space survival game where members would have to last a large amount of days until they delivered the Oracle to Termina Central, which resulted in winning. This changed when others added story lore into the mix and the GM decided to play along and create a story about it.
  • Zealot Kalpyr was originally going to die by Crimson Son snipers to invoke the more threatening enemy but because the GM thought that Kalpyr had more potential later on instead he escaped.
  • Player actions during the shootout on Duroma differed so radically from the GM's expectations that he later admitted to improvising almost all of it.
  • Viper's player, Deathgrunt, planned an arc that would detail Viper's time when it was captured by Pheonix Corps. Ultimately, it was abandoned, due to the player dealing with life issues at the time.
  • Iska and Nycho's player, Radley, originally intended to have the former leave some time during the Crimson Arc, with Nycho acting as a substitute character until Iska returned. However, this plan never came to fruition and it is now considered canon that Nycho left prior to the Battle of Zeruel.
  • Despite the post-game Crimson Incarnate-related epilogues, Dwan's epilogue is yet to have been posted.
  • References and shout-outs to other media are thrown about heavily, but there are references to other Facepunch forum RPs strewn about:
    • HarkArk and Helix Corps are originally from the screenshot-based space RP Interstellar Wars.
    • The name that Arthur used for his secret identity was Endarth, inspired by the same-named character he played in the MS Paint-based fantasy RP Drawing RP.
    • The receptionist at the Gold Dust Office in Termina Central was a Hygarth, a race originating from the nation-based space RP Galaxy at War. He asked Dwan if he would like some Lusurian sex slaves, Lusurians being based on the Lust from nation-based space RP Galaxy at War V2.

Scoundrels of the Interstellar HighwayEdit

  • Had Lion survived the Battle of Zeruel instead of being KIA, his player Viper123_SWE had planned for him to return to Valerie. Through groundbreaking advances in medical engineering, he would have eventually returned to his (heavily modified) human body and settle down with the love of his life, possibly even having children. The latter was hinted at when Valerie went to the SSOID Alpha Site and experienced the final thoughts of Lion, which had survived in scattered memory fragments recovered after his death.
  • In Yuga Shuur's original picture, you can clearly see two scars on her face; one beneath the right eye and one running up her left cheek. Although it was a mere oversight on their creator's part, as Yuga was supposed to be very prim and proper, it had become canon in the lore that Yuga got the scars at some point during her time in the Ayr Merchant Marine. The exact event and the cause for her scars have not yet been mentioned.
  • Frosty originally was not going to be an Artisynth, but rather an ancient android war machine created by a long forgotten race and left abandoned in a pile of frozen trash the crew would eventually have come across.
  • Moloch was also not going to join the crew, and in his place, a different character would have joined instead. The character would be an Artisynth savage named Zaaj, and his racial feat due to being a savage would involve him bleeding out toxic chemicals and noxious gasses due to the copious amounts of chemicals he's been taking, gradually increasing an area of effect around him while making the area increasingly lethal to be in.
  • Maddox was not originally planned to end up dead. In fact, his creator, Viper123_SWE, had planned for him to survive all the way to the end and hopefully initiate a relationship with either Taylor or a unnamed NPC character from Mars. However, due to horrible planning, he was unfortunately killed after a series of in-game out-of-character events. Viper will forever be salty on the matter.
  • The previous image of Vakarus displayed him as a Protoss from the Starcraft series; however, because he was described as having a mouth (whereas the Protoss don't) early on, in Scoundrels, this was later adjusted. His new image now resembles the Draenei from World of Warcraft, same goes for all Vakr.
