Scifi Concept

Post by Guest on Tue 22 Oct 2013, 11:46 pm

General Premise

   This proposed thread will take place in the year 2342 AD, in which humanity has moved on to colonize hundreds of systems thanks to a long-distance solution renaissance brought on by the invention of the Crawford-Rorschach marker in 2158, a system that, using the power of quantum phase-shifting and quantum entanglement, can safely open a warp-gate between two points within a three system-wide radius from the position of the marker. This innovation, compounded by rampant overpopulation and inflation on Earth, caused the rapid colonization and establishment of planets to become necessary. Seeing potential for lucrative profits from space materials and derelicts, the rapidly fading aristocracy of Earth jumped to commission groups of educated pilots, engineers, and ex-soldiers to work as mercenaries in the stars, providing a ship and crew for the group. These men were soon called "Privateers", after the state sponsored pirates of old. The privateers travel from planet to planet, providing services from those unpleasant such as the intimidating of a suitor, to less-than safe private military work.
Player Roles

The players take command of a group of privateers, starting from receiving commission on Earth. The roleplay will be structured similar to the episodic nature of Star Trek, with a variety of missions and encounters punctuated by moments of downtime aboard the ship.
--World information will be added over time to this thread as things are suggested and I can be bothered.--

This seems like a very interesting concept, but I want to clear up at least one thing.
Has extraterrestrial life been encountered yet?
If not, then that opens up First Contact...

No, though evidence of extraterrestrials has been found in the form of derelict ships and bases.

I don't see anything particularly wrong with this, sounds like you could combine this with the other sci-fi collab going on.

Yeah, we probably should, just 'cause Reil already has a plot and we've basically got the same idea.
