2142, the year that everything humanity had known would change. The Earth Space Alliance, a global confederation of the numerous nation-states and multinational corporations on Earth, has been researching advanced technology to begin the exodus of people to repopulate the Sol System and the rest of the galaxy. Earth is now an unrecognisable husk, the rampant overpopulation and industrialisation that had begun in the early nineteenth century is now at a crisis level. The oceans are higher than ever, dirty and polluted, many of Earth’s many unique animals have died due to the rapid change in climate, vegetation and air quality. Earth’s bountiful resources that had, for so long, been the source of conflict and death were now at their very last reserves, people were desperate for an alternate solution to the depravity and desolation that the Earth had become.
The ESA set up a bold program to recruit the best and brightest from around the globe to accelerate the aging space program that had been scrapped years ago to try and solve Earth’s problems without extrasolar influence. The project has been running for twenty years now and the future of humanity now relies in the spaceship Redemption. ESF Redemption is the first of five planned colony ships to go through the newly developed warp gate, everyone aboard the Redemption will be the first to experience space outside of the relative comfort of Sol. The ESA is not a popular movement, many back on Earth view this as the richest and brightest abandoning everyone back on Earth to die due to their own greed. Tensions are high as 2142 dawns, the year that the Redemption would finally break free of Earth, and everyone waits with baited breath. It’s the Fifth Of February 2142, one day before launch, and you find yourself aboard the Redemption.
You have all been selected from the masses on Earth to represent one of the final chances for humanity to find a new home outside of Sol before the Earth is finally destroyed…

Pace: Normal (One Scene Per Week – Slower if needed for emergencies and RL )
Characters: I am looking for a large and dedicated crew 6-8 players to begin with as the ship will be holding 1500. I am happy with multiple characters and it should be possible for people to drop in and out with ease. Lots of creative expression encouraged and plenty of opportunities your characters to shape the story. I am hoping to make a long space epic out of this!
Post Length: Set at 1500 (I love long posts but this isn’t a requirement).
Theme: Space / Survival
Cards: Strength/Weakness/Sub-plot are just place holders can be used or ignored. Natures are guidelines they can be edited or new roles created and we can discuss them on the character creation page.
