What would it be like if the fantasy races could actually push into space?

What if the Orcs were all killed off by some unknown force, and all that existed were... all other races... What would it be like if Empire sent small probe things into space to look for life as we have done, or have they already?

Okay, one, it looks like those are two totally different questions, neither of which follow the question posed in the topic title.

Secondly, I don't know that the Empire has sent small probes... It seems to like sending ships full of warriors and virus bombs to find and colonize new worlds.

And if they orcs all died, there'd still be a hell of a lot of warfare going on. After all, in the 41st millenia... There is only way.

Basically what Smell the ashes said,


What did those questions have to do with each other and the topic title?

I'm not sure what the annihilation of the orcs has to do with anything, and I say this without knowing jack about the fantasy (and still most of the 40k) universe, but I don't think anything would happen. How would they get in space anyway, magic? Because they don't have ships do they?

Say wha?

What is going on? Empire sending probes? Orks extinct and the warp ensues?

I am really lost right now......

By Empire, do you mean the Fantasy Empire, or the Emperium?

And I'd imagine that the race which is the most isolated(and not evil) would probably be able to steamroll ahead, not having to worry about as much war.

Fantasy, the fantasy races. What would it be like if they could actually acheive space exploration?

Alright, fantasy in space stuff coming. This post is not serious, nor is it meant to follow 40k fluff, I'm just trying to humourously connect the stories of different armies, or in some cases kill them off because there is no such parallel

Empire- Take control of a lot of space, but screw up royally, try again, some punk decides to screw them over, so they try for the third time and everyone decides to attack them at once! Hard luck eh?

Bretonnians- Eventually get tired and decide to let their women do the fighting.

Wood Elves- Build a spaceship out of leaves, but it burns up in the atmosphere

High Elves- Turns out they were already in space for quite a while. Meet up with techy cousins and try to figure out the concept of a "gun"

Dark Elves- Meet up with their techy cousins. Techy cousins turn them into grotesques. STILL don't like High Elves.

Chaos- Try to destroy everyone else's space programs, but fail miserably Eventually they do get into space and one of them screws over the empire. Still coming up with crazy schemes to this day. One god plans to destroy planets by firing large amounts of assorted currency at them.

Undead- Zombies are not good navigators. They crash into a star that just so happened to have a C'tan feeding on it. C'tan get an idea

Lizards- Prosper in space for a while, but a large intergalactic model making company's influence results in them slowly fading into obscurity

Dwarves- Go mining asteroids. Same large company that nearly wiped out the lizards brutally stamps out all signs of their existance.

Orcs- Do not get into space because their codex never gets updated, giving them that technology.

Ogres- Run out of food and try to eat their spacecraft causing it to crash land on a heavy gravity world

Skaven - Get into space via some strange warp stone powered rocket. Have no control over where its headed but eventually colonize many planets in an alien system.

Eventually wiped out by skeletal robots who speak with a heavy accent know to many as "exTerminators"

The fantasy Old Ones in the Lizardmen Codex did. They mention it a couple o times.
