21 Stellaris Empires for you to enjoy

Update – So the latest Stellaris patch & DLC changed a bunch of things, so I’ve added three new empires and updated some of the old ones. I’ve also noted which DLC an empire requires, if any.

So a while back I started making custom Stellaris Empires and sharing them on Twitter. People seemed to like them and it was a fun writing prompt so obviously I went completely overboard and made 18 (21 now!) different empires for the new expansion. The new update shrunk the bio window on the Empire screen, which is why they’re now on a website, with the bio underneath instead of just being twitter screenshots. I’ve also added some random comments on how I came up with them.

If you want to use these in your game just download the file here and pop it in Documents/Paradox Interactive/Stellaris (note this will overwrite your current custom empires if you have any). I tried to avoid using any mods so that anyone can download them, although I did use this one to get more flag colours.


Welcome to my new site

Hello all! If you don’t know me, I’m Tom Hatfield, a freelance games journalist. I’ve worked for PC Gamer, Nintendo Gamer and Edge. I created this site to showcase some of my published work and host any articles I feel like writing, but can’t find a home for anywhere else. I’m also planning to use it to write about films, books, TV, comics and other other medium I’m interested in.

If you’re interested in my opinions, I recommend following them in 140 character form on twitter. If you want to get in touch with me for work then you can email me.

Otherwise just sit back and enjoy the writing!
