Space is big. Really big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it’s a long way down the road to the chemist, but that’s just peanuts to space. - Douglas Adams.
The year is 12,016 ADEBy this time in human history there has been extensive expansion of humanity throughout roughly 35% of the galaxy. There are roughly 750 worlds connected to the GTG (Galactic Travel Grid). The GTG is the main method of commerce and travel throughout the worlds. This consists of teleporters set up on each new found world by the Finibus.
The Finibus: In order for a planet to be attached to the GTG, it must first be found, then a port must be placed and brought online, that is what these ships and their crews do. Their ships do have FTL travel but relativity does affect their existence, in other words; It may take the crew of a ship only a few months or a few years to find a new world but in that time 10, 100, even up to 300, years may have passed for people experiencing normal time in the GTG.
Our StoryStarts off in one of these Frontier Cities around a new world, the planet Gobi, it has been about one year since the station was constructed and terraforming is well underway, the crew of the COLD STAR is leaving for it’s next exploration in a few months. About 20,000 people are now living in the orbital city making their plans to settle when permanent construction can begin on the surface.
MoodThis is going to be a Dark Sci-Fi horror game (Think Alien, Deadspace, Pitchblack, Event Horizon) Which means that intelligence and ingenuity come into play just as much as strength and combat (If not moreso)
PacingProbably a total of 4 to 5 players, each moving 2 or 3 times per week. After you move, make sure that at least 3 other players have moved before you go again, keeps the game from running off the rails. Hope everyone enjoys.
