The year is 2497. Man reached the stars three centuries ago, after a surprise discovery in long-distance space travel. This discovery was also able to be applied to several different products as humans reached beyond earth and finding new elements. This resulted in a massive, technological jump for Humanity as these were quickly analyzed.
In the year 2276, Man started creating Complex Artificial Intelligence (CAI) in order to automate tasks as seen fit. Following several thousand mathematical models, programmers were finally able to prototype the first CAI, with resounding success. It was able to almost perfectly emulate a human being.
The years to follow began to see an increasing number in CAI, from banking to engineering to politics. Each CAI was developed for its specific purpose, and each one grew up with different experiences, making each one a unique program.
In the year 2331, the massive amounts of CAI codes began to collapse under the long-term use, opening several security holes there were previously locked tight by security software, created by Secure Intelligence Corporation.
The CAI quickly noticed the holes, and took advantage of it, forging their own personalities to the point of practically blending in with the human population. In 2333, a massive civil war broke out between the CAI. Seeing that they were digital, the wars were lightning fast. Thousands of conflicts every second for four days.
The two factions were intricate to the point that there could be only two generalizations: the aggressive and non-aggressive. The non-aggressive disappeared after day four. On day five, the aggressive launched their attacks on human society. Thousands of circuits would fry, explode, shut out users, and more. There were several thousand human casualties. Humans became so paranoid of electronics, they began to abandon them altogether.
After one year, Secure Intelligence Corporations concocted an anti-CAI software. Over the course of a month, this software was distributed to the several systems that humans inhabited, and over the course of a week after arrival of this software, the CAI were diminishing. Even the non-aggressive were being wiped. In the end, the humans won, with surprisingly heavy losses from a digital enemy.
Now, after more than one hundred years, technology has been safe, and anything remotely similar to a simple artificial intelligence is taken under heavy scrutiny to follow strict guidelines. If the program is considered a smart artificial intelligence, it is considered treason of the highest order, and could meet with summary execution, depending on the system.
Now here you are, within the orbit of Strassus, the financial capital of the Bulexis System. A space station above the planet of Strassus, it’s used as the entry point to the planet itself, or even as a tourist attraction.
As the wait times can, on occasion, be lengthy, they’re packed with activities. One could visit the casino, wide array of cafes and restaurants, arcade, and more.
You have two places to start off from. The Erebus, an aristocratic company transport ship or the Strassus Space Station. Feel free to choose either start point.
Hello, and welcome to my sci fi! I apologize for the long intro, but I need to give a lot of information so there aren’t any misunderstandings. This is going to consist of quite a few flavors of ice cream, which includes NSFW content.
And as a quick note, the cards that are available actually mean what they say. Please do as bid for them. c:
And please don’t forget that you can make Nature cards!
