Welcome to the Flourish Industries Age of Corporations Research Department.

We here at Flourish Industries are dedicated to finding more information about this fascinating point in the history of our planet, Varius. To that end, we have our researchers finding lost documents and data sources on this remarkable time period, and are writing essays on it as we speak. Hopefully, our knowledge of the past will usher us into a new, more hopeful future, and lead for some really great historical fantasy.

Lead Researcher: Dog
Staff Researchers: Cirne, Mysterio
Guest Researchers: SabreCat, Preacher

If you wish to write an article or essay for the FIAoCRD, please contact our lead researcher, Dog, or leave a comment on this page with your requested research subject. Staff researchers may submit articles on their own, but guest researchers must submit their work to Dog for review. Dog has the right to correct or suppress any AoC research that has been published, but he's lazy so just about anything ought to do.

The Stuff of Dreams, by Dog and Mysterio


- You know it's really funny thinking back to how I knew most of you how many years ago? It seems like forever. And you all are still the same good ole creative bunch you always were (compliment). Anyway, I really enjoy reading your stuff (great way to kill time at work), keep it up! One thing that I thought would be fun to have is a map or maps. Reading the descriptions of what happened and how the landscape has changed, it would be interesting to have a real visual depiction from the author(s). Just a thought :-) - Lyfana
