The year is 2141. The Earth, our cradle of civilization for nearly sixty-six million years lies before us – ravaged, irradiated and dying. Decades of unilateral greed, destruction and the overwhelming manipulation of earth’s finite resources has driven the population of Earth past even the most negative predictions touted in the twentieth century. Widespread famine, innumerable complex plagues ravaging through the poverty-stricken masses, unchecked inequality between workers and owners coupled with repeated conflicts over ever-decreasing resource stockpiles has left Earth on the brink of collapse. Near the very precipice of total annihilation - mere decades away from an unimaginable cataclysm for the planet to rid itself of the plague called humanity.
Despite their various political differences, and ongoing tensions, the world’s many great powers – The United Americas, The European Federation, The Pan-Asian Conglomerate and the African Empire have agreed to collaborate on one final mission to survey the vast unknown beyond Mars. Whilst Luna and Mars have various colonies from all factions since the first great colonial missions of the 2050’s neither could support Earth’s continuing downfall into tragedy. The united front knew that they needed a much greater source of new materials and even greater habitable areas for the massive overpopulation on Earth. The ‘New Eden’ project as it was called, in memory of Sir Thomas Eden – the British originator of the idea, is nearing completion and the Earth is warily hopeful that this vast colony ship could be the answer that they all hoped for…
This is merely some of the background for an upcoming Storium surrounding the Revenant - Earth’s greatest hope for survival past the 2200s. Each player will be a department head aboard the vast ship from Science, Medical, Engineering, Security and Media or even Vice-Captain or Project Overseer. As narrator I will be playing the Captain and completing general narration and backstory but I am hoping for quite a long game centred around a world we can create together - using a google doc to brainstorm and keep track of details for the vast ship.
