Cosmic Era is the personal playground (campaign world, novel setting, etc) of Scrasamax. A lot of his submissions (and he writes A LOT!!!!) take root in the Cosmic Era.

Is there an article that gives an overview of the setting, or is it more of an emergent setting?

I see a number of articles referencing the Cosmic Era. What exactly is it?

The Cosmic Era is a somewhat distant futurist setting that mixes the basic tropes of cyberpunk and Shadowrun with the technology of Battletech (giant robots, power armor, rail guns) and blends in a large dose of 80s and 90s nostalgia, Saturday morning cartoons, and Lovecraft.

I've attempted to make a master codex, but I am better at generating it's content than providing any sort of arrangement to it.
