Earth was doomed to die, but Humanity was not, for they set upon the stars. In the year 2100, the home planet of the Human Race was deemed uninhabitable, and so what remained of humanity shuffled into their varied spacecraft and took to the stars, most of which heading to the colonies already present on Mars, but over the next few centuries, the entirety of the region of Humania was colonized, and the following centuries were defined by statecraft, politics, war and corruption between the varied human factions. This drastically changed in the year 3000, six centuries before today, when, after much speculation, alien life was proven to exist.

A warlike alien empire, the Scorpines (named so by the humans), quickly conquered the disparate human states, and for the next hundred years, Humania was subject to Scorpine rule. This was until the rise of Orion, the great human hunter, who united all humans under his rifle and rebelled against the alien empire, turning Humania into an empire of his own, the region now known as Orion's Belt. Since then, his empire, now ruled by his descendants, have expanded their empire slowly, as they both push against the Scorpines, conquer small nations, and colonize new planets.

Around three hundred years ago, the Empire came upon Ventia, a star with four gas giants which made up its system, which they named Aquilo, Favonius, Auster, and Eurus. Of course, none of these were habitable, nor were their moons, except for one small moon of Aquilo, who's single continent was covered in forest and ice, and inhabited by a tribal race of aliens, a one eyed people the named the Cyclopes. They named this moon Hyperborea.

Largely covered by ocean, early Imperial scouts decided that the moon wouldn't be worth the investment, and instead claimed the star system and put it up to auction, only to be bought by a group of private investors, who named themselves the Astoria Bay Company (ABC), after the bay on Hyperborea which housed the current scouting camp. The camp was expanded into the capital settlement, first calling it Astoria Factory, then Astoria City. Settlements began to expand to elsewhere on the continent, and soon, the ABC turned Hyperborea into a time capsule; a glimpse to the empire into a nature that once was.



Hey guys! What you just read above is my attempt to start a character based prequel to my old Space NRP, Dark Matters.
roleplayerguild.com/topics/172422-dar…

Dark Matters was a lot of fun, but one of the problems was despite creating this fleshed out world, we didn't have much of a central plotline, so it sort of just petered off. So for this, I have one!

For the past few years, Hyperborea has seen an uptake in illegal activity due to the Xuhajann Bandit King, Kurxum Hef, who leads a private army of thieves, mercenaries, and Cyclopes in the largest smuggling operation that Hyperborea's ever seen. All previous attempts at ending his operation have proven futile due to the loyalty displayed by the Company Scouts, which he used to be a commanding officer in.

With the scouts proving useless in this operation, the ABC must turn to a more unconventional force, and is forced to put together a team of those who live outside of Company, or Imperial parameters, tasking another former scout, Fera Arella, who Hef helped to raise, in putting this team together. Whether you're Hyperborean through and through, a seasonal visitor, or a complete newcomer, your place on this team is well paying, but may be one of the most dangerous missions you will ever complete.

Below imma drop a bunch of lore about Hyperborea and the world. Ty
