Oh man, I know that problem... digging in and fleshing out whole universes...

Every time I start geeking out on another one I remember this article from The Onion, and quietly close my laptop and step outside: http://www.theonion.com/article/novelist-has-whole-shitty-world-plotted-out-21193

Behold: the Arcbuilder Universe.

It is: A bulletin board.

A yahoo group.

Dozens of fictional planetary systems in Celestia, which is how I found it back in like 2004

...but as far as I can tell, a mere 5,000 words of prose.

you are now aware that there are something like 200 novels set in the Battletech Universe.
