GURPS: Dark Energy
From GURPSworld Wiki
The year is 9838. Humans have colonized the entire Local Supercluster, and have begun branching along the galactic filaments into the neighboring superclusters, and the population of this sprawling empire is counted in the quintillions. Purebred humans represent a tiny percentage of the population (numbering in the millions) and can no longer reproduce, but all remaining humans appear to no longer age or die of old age. All humans alive today are thousands of years old, and it is said the King of the Universe was born on Old Earth in the Milky Way Galaxy 7,500 years ago. Humans have colonized thousands of galaxies, with human civilization stretching the entirety of the Laniakea Supercluster, and expanding into several neighboring superclusters. No intelligent life or traces of intelligent life have been found in any of these galaxies. The bulk of the people inhabiting this vast kingdom of mankind are transhuman, with most being considered superhuman. Unlike humans, however, none of these successor species are capable of of effective immortality, and remain in lower castes than pure humans.
