Timeless SciFi Classics
It was funny to read science fiction of the future humanity when such a futuristic society is dated 1972. I read such a scifi story recently using Gutenberg eReader on my Android phone. And one of the first thing that came to my mind was that the story would have been just as relevant if it had been dated 2072 or even 2172.
It occurred to me that many books and stories in the Cyno's Role-Play series has explicit dates as well. For example, one of its supplement is titled, "Earth 2143 A.D.".
Although dates on the Cyno's Role-Play series are dated far in advance, pass our lifetimes, eventually they will fall as victims into the same trap. With today's technology improving at the current rate in all industries, it wouldn't be shocking if someone is to announce that any of us would live past 2143.
Therefore, after much thought, I have decided to eliminate all specific dates from the Cyno's Role-Play series. Instead, a vague notion of date will be used. For example, "Earth 2143 A.D." could be renamed to "Future Earth". And a passage like, "In 2143", could be replaced with "A long time from now".
This turn of event reduces the stress level of keeping the dates straight in gaming and in reading our stories for entertainment purposes. For ages to come, everyone will enjoy reading stories within the Cyno's Role-Play universe without the specific dates ruining the story element.
