They came out of nowhere.
Nobody knows the reasons why, the motives, the passions that drove these invaders to attack the Earth, but they did. Entire continents were destroyed in hours, cities vaporised either from orbit or through mysterious portals that would open up just long enough to swallow a tract of land.
Nobody living had even caught a glimpse of the invaders, they had just arrived, and destroyed.
Either they didn’t count on the orbital facilities surrounding Earth, or they didn’t care, but some people survived. And one ship.
It was meant to be the pinnacle of mankind, a joining of peoples, a way to reach out into the stars and take them into the future. The Ark, six kilometres long, space for a million people. Meant to go forth in search of new places and sow the seeds of Humankind amongst the stars with a revolutionary new type of propulsion.
Now it’s their only salvation. Thousands of people were evacuated, entire orbiting stations pulled into drydock within the humongous mass of the Ark to rescue everyone that they could.
But The Enemy have taken notice now. And their sights have turned from the scorched planet to the people above.
This is a Sci-Fi epic in a similar vein to Homeworld, Andromeda or BSG, about the struggles of the last of Humankind. There’s room for all sorts of roles although I would like a good mix of Military and Civilian characters to hopefully generate some tension.
Feel free to customize some strengths and natures and get your characters in for submission!
This game ran previously, but we have too many changes of important characters to continue you on with any narrative clarity. You can read it for an idea of what you’re in for here;
