It’s been nearly a century since one of humanity’s first FTL ships, exploring the Kuiper belt, made first contact with an alien species, the Ikatak. It’s been fifty years since humans ventured outside the solar system–forty since the first interstellar colony was founded. And five years since the Seven Month War with the Vitsu ended in a strange peace.
Now, in the year 2199, humanity stands poised to seize a place in the galactic night. But are we pursuing our destiny, or running from old problems…and what new problems await? The crew of the newly refurbished Terran Space Corps battleship Dauntless will have a chance to find out firsthand.
So I tried running a game last year, and I ran into problems (most of which had nothing to do with Storium itself). So, I thought I’d give it another go…one has to start somewhere, right?
I’m basically using the standard Space Adventure card set, though I’m sure I’ll be introducing new stuff soon. As for theme/atmosphere, I’ve been inspired by the Uplift books…perhaps Babylon 5, Star Trek Next Generation, maybe some Deep Space 9. However, while there are certainly aliens around, humans are on the periphery of most of the galactic intrigues. (For now…) I’m definitely open for characters with their own agendas, subplots, setting bits…There are some plots waiting in the wings, but they can always be put off in favor of the characters interacting!
