The End of the Age of Empires

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

A panel discussing empires in SFF. Is an empire ever morally right? Why do we gravitate so commonly in this genre to tales of empire royalty? What is in these stories that attracts us can we break out of them still tell exciting adventure stories? Can you even have an adventure SFF without an "US vs THEM" dynamic? If empires fall...what comes next?
