Three years after the pilgrimage voyage of the HSS Chibuzo and the subsequent martyrdom of Sister Juana, aggressions between the Holy Sea and the Colonists are coming to a head. Colonist strongholds have taken root at the fringes of Holy Sea space, with a central base of operations located on a space station orbiting the planet Agora.
The Order of the Holy Sea finds itself with the most tenuous control over humanity it has had in centuries. Civilians flee for Colonist bases daily, as do many former members of its clergy. Even some Holy Sea robots have defected, their programming expanded by the revelation that “Mag the Revolutionary” was able to break free of its original design.
Despite this, the Holy Sea will not relinquish control voluntarily. It has called upon its faithful - those who believe the planet Agora is an elaborate hoax dreamed up by Colonial sympathizers - to defend the Order at any cost.
After years of operating in secrecy, the Colonists are now primed to go on the offensive. No longer satisfied with carving out a space for themselves from existing Holy Sea territory, they plan to expose the Order for what it truly is and free all of humanity from its grasp.
Setting: This is a continuation of the Storium game “First Contact.” Characters in this portion of the story need to be aligned with the Colonist faction, to the extent that the scenes in this story will primarily take place on Colonist bases. Characters can either be individuals who formerly lived on Holy Sea ships/stations and have since defected, or humans from one of the three city-states of Agora. If you choose an Agoran character, please specify which city-state they are from.
Characters from Part 1: You are welcome to continue playing the character you used in Part 1 of this story. If you decide not to do this, please let me know if I have your permission to use that character as an NPC in this story, and if so, what that character has been up to in the last three years.
