The Freelancer Legends
This story is going to be about a far future human race who has begun to spread across the galaxy. Progress was slow at first but has recently developed at an alarming rate due to the development of "Space-Time Tears". (See * for more information)
This new rapid advancement of technology and colonization of the universe creates a lot of jobs. Lots of which are extremely hazardous and high risk. With this being the case, Freelancers have been rising in number for years. Freelancer crews, unions, guilds and so on have been forming all over Human controlled space. They are comprised of individuals who have practiced or trained in the use of Exo-Armor. These suits allow Freelancers to take on most, if not all, the dangerous jobs the universe has to offer. Whether it be exterminating a hazardous infestation of alien life off a farming world, or mining minerals out of caustic tunnels deep inside hidden moons, Freelancers use their Exo-Armor to take on any jobs they can find for good money.
The starting point will be different for each character. Maybe some of our players have been in a Freelancer crew for a few years now, maybe you're the new recruit. All of this will be discussed once we see some interest and start hashing out the starting line for our players.
Regardless, All characters will end up in the same crew and work together to overcome obstacles and carve out a piece of the universe for themselves.
As the GM I will be playing a Freelancer. My Co-GM (Meglegere) will be playing the Crew Captain (the one who hired all of us and who gets jobs for the crew to do. He also owns the Corvette Class ship we will all be staying on and working out of.)
There is still LOTS for me to expound upon, SO this is just a little interest check. Just seeing who out here would be interested in a completely fresh take at some sci-fi space exploration and survival.
Speak up if I caught your eye!
*Space-Time Tears are nuclear space stations that tear holes in Space-Time creating safe instantaneous jumps to different parts of the universe. Humanity has discovered a cheap and effective way to build these in orbit of every colonized planet, but still allows you to tear into uncharted areas of space (which is very dangerous because you will have to take the "long way" back. [AKA: not taking a tear] resulting in you running out of fuel, food, water or oxygen. Possibly breaking down or whatever might inconvenience your crew) That being said there is still other ways to travel. Faster than Light Travel (FTL Travel) is possible with a strong enough pulse drive, however, all crew on board must be in Stasis otherwise the effects on the body are lethal.
